Bow Thrjr Rob and Ruin Their I'Biupwt
in a; Victims.
A celebrated gambler told me a few
years ago that he had gone out of the
gambling- business because of the con
fidence games mixed up with it. Said
In almost every community of this
country where there is any money
there will be a few men who like to
play a game of chance like faro.
These were more or less reliable cus
tomers for gamblers, because they
sometimes won and sometimes lost,
and were always kept on the string.
But suddenly there would appear in
the town a traveling gambler and his
associates, who take a room and open
a game, or perhaps play it in a hotel
where he had got good quarters, and
only the regular players of the town
become acquainted with the fact.
Having played a straight game for
one evening the next morning the
principal in the game or the player
whom he is supposed to hire, will ap
proach the most solvent of the village
players and say: I would like to ar
range with you to deal you a game.
If you will come up to-night and bet
strong I will manipulate the box and
make you a winner to a high figure.
Of course you will divide with me. I
am going to leave that man, and I
want a stake."
So the village victim will take of his
bank or stock a large portion of his
money and go to the private place,
where nobody imagines any gambling
exists, or especially that he, the busi
ness man, the coal operator, the bank
teller, is risking any thing in that
outlawed way. The player will have
his eye on the victim, and he will
bet according to arrangement, and for
a little while the cards will waver,
and finally the man will have lost
more than ever before. He will leave
the room a wondering, sick creature.
But the fellow who was to deal to
him the game will manage to see him
during the evening or the next morn
ings and say: "I couldn't deal you
thafr game last night because old
Smith was watching me. To-night I
am going to get rid of him. and I will
fix it for you all right; so come at me
again." The man will go the second
night and lose the remainder of all
his means. His first step to ruin is
consenting to be a partner in the
Bwindle, even upon a gambler. The
whole game in coming to that town
was to get his particular money, and
in that game were dealer, boss, gam
bler and every body. Oath, in Cin

The longer turnips and cabbages
can remain out without actually
freezing, the better they are for eat
ing purposes and the better thpy will
keep through the winter.
Economy is certainly wealth in the
feeding of farm horses, and yet it does
not necessarily mean stinting or cut
ting off of rations. Give this matter
a thorough investigation, and see if
there is not more ia it than a saper
ficial glance would indicate. -
Cera meal in small quantities, lin
seed meal in email quantities, and a
liberal quantity of good bran meal
with the roughness, will make an ad
mirable winter feed for milch cows,
and if given liberally, with good shel
ter, it is possible to secure a good flow
of milk during the winter; provided,
of courfe, that you have a good breed
of cows, that thia feed can be given to
iiuring the winter.
By pouring boiling water over sny
kind of grain, and allowing tha grain
to remain twenty-four hours, it will
swell and prove an acceptable change
to the fowls. The soaked grain un
dergoes a partial chemical change,
contains a slightly larger portion of
sugar, and ia really more digestible.
Nothing is added to the grain by soak
ing it, bat it will be more readily
eaten for some time than dry grain,
though the birds will return t dry
grain as a preference if fed too long
on that which is soaked.
A correspondent of the New Eng
land Farmer gives the following direc
tions for destroying the potato weevil :
Take an ordinary manure hod, one
that is broad and light is to be pre
ferred, and grasping it by the hole
for the left hand near the mouth of
the bod, with a broad and limber
broom carried wfth the right hand,
proceed through the field, placing the
hod against tun infested with grabs
and gently beating or sweeping them
over the edge of the hod and into it
with the broom. In this way a great
majerity of all the grubs in a email
potato patch may be gathered in a
short time and destroyed. This may
be of service, especially in eates where
there are objections to thi use of pois
ons offered in the markets. A little
practice will enable a person to do ex
ecution with the above implements
with considerable dispatch.
Straw as a material for stock shel
ters have favorable qualities: It is a
very poor conductor of heat, hence it
makes a warm shelter. It costs little,
being produced in ahaudance on a
large majority of farms ; and its em
ployment for this purp-je does not
require special skill beyond the farm
er. Bat it ii not ss etonjiuical as
faanv suppose. It a as necessary
that the top- : the shelter be water
light as that the sideie-ii!djjgfct

no demand for eggs and no eggs;

taking another breed, but aa I get
them for $1 each, about one-tenth
their value, I bought them and took
them home, intending to do the best
possible by them, considering the con
veniences at hand. Took two orders
for eggs before driving home. I placed
them in a small hou-e with a 16x16
foot ran. As I said before they were
very fat. My first move was to see
that they had plenty of exercise, and
thereby reduce them in flesh. I di
vided a portion of their run off and
put in about one f )ot of straw, and
they bad to scrateh for a living. It
was not very long until they were

A good idea for a hoist for a barn
is to erect two upright posts six inches
square and firmly fastened in the up
per part of the building, one on either
side of the hatchway. Strong iron or
wooden boxes attached to these posts
support the journal of a round shaft
one foot in diameter, upon which is a
wooden wheel four to t?ix feet in diam
eter. . The larger site gives increased
power, but for ordinary lifting four
feet is large enough. .The wheel is
made of eight sagments cut from two
inch plank, each one being a quarter
of a circle. They are put together
with spikes or bolts ia a manner to
"break joints." Bafore being fastened
together the segments are notched to
receive the enda of the four arms,
