COLTS AND CALVES. Rom of th Advantage of Hvlu( Tha Com In th Full. For growing stock grass la recog nized as one ot the cheapest and best of fends. Not thut it is in all cr68 a cotnplote food, but during the growing season it can be used to good ad van tage at a principal food. And in the , management of the farm stock it is qulto an item to got the largest amount of benefit from the grass,, eitltor by pasturing or soiling. ' Calves and colts, inftJie first few months of their existence, 'must de pond almost, if not wholly, upon milk. It matters little (luring this time to thorn, at least, whether their dams are pastured upon grass or fed hay and grain in the stable, provided the quantity and quality are such as to enable them to furnish a full supply of milk. But when they are ready to wean then it becomes a question of considerable interest, uo they will grow and develop, usually. In propor tion to the quality and quantity ot thro food supplied. . . j One of the principal advantages in j having the colts and calves coino in. the fall rather than in the spring is thnt, by the time they are ready 16 wean in the spring, the grass will have made a sufficient growth to furnish considerable food, and thoy "will be able to make their first six months' growth, after weaning, upon grass rather than upon dry hay or fodder and grain. In counting the cost of preparing an animal for market, the period of weaning is usually considered the proper time for beginning the account, and in a majority of cases it will .lesson the cost considerably if grass c;tn bo made the principal food for the first six months. With the cows another item can be added. Whether marketed as milk or made .into butter the milk is of more value during the winter than in the summer: and. after calving, the cows will give the largest quantity of milk, at least for five to six months, and this can be secured with little, if any more expense, during the winter ian in the summer. So far as possible all the stock on tho farm should be kept in a good thrifty condition, and if this is done the cost of feeding is but little, if any, more during the winter, whether a large or a small quantity of milk is supplied. With the brood mares it is usually expected that enough work ran be done by them to pay at least for their keep, and yet it is an item to get this work at a time when It can be med to the beat advantage. On most farms this will be found to be in the spring, when the work of seeding and plant ing, as well as of cultivating is gen erally most pressing. And by having the colts come in the fall more work, with less risk, can be secured than if they come in the spring, and in addi tion there is better food for their growth and development after wean ing. St. Louia Republic. BEGINNING OF A BOTTLE. ProceMM Employed in th Manufactory of Ulaaa-U'ar. The process begins with the gatherer. Ilis blowpipe is a tube of wrought iron, five or six feet long, and of lighter weight than the pipe used in blowing window glass. He dips the end of his pipe into the molten contents of the boot, and brings out a mass of red-hot plastic glass. If the bottles to bo blown are small, one gathering suffices, but, for larger wares, two or even three gatherings may be necessary to get the requisite supply of material on the end of the blowpipe. When the gathering is done properly, this lump of red-hot glass is a perfect homogeneous mass. Its subsequent fortunes rest with the blower, lie takes tho blowpipe from the gatherer, and resting the plastic glass against a niarvering table of stone or cast iron, he gives the pipe a few adroit rotations, thus fashioning tho glass into an even cylindrical shape. J'.y further rolling it along the edge of the table he forms the smaller prolonga tion of glass which is afterward to be come the neck of tho bottle. Lifting the still red-hot glass from tho table, he blows through the pipe, forming ft small bubble of air in the interior of the mass of glass. This is afterward extended until it becomes tho inward ness of tho bottle. The partly fashioned bit of jrlassware U now introduced into the mold which one of the "shop" boys has already opened to receive it. For convenience in working, the mold Is placed on a somewhat lower level than that on which the blower stands. It Is made of cast iron, and is commonly formed in two pieces. One of these is stationary, while tho other opens outward, its motion being con trolled by a foot lever. When the blower places his incomplete bottle, still at tached to the blowpipe, into the mold, he closes the mold with his foot, and blows through the pipo until the plastic glass is everywhere forced against the sides of the mold, and has impressed upon it the term of its prison.

The Production or (iormany, HwlUtrland and Holland. Wooden carved toys are chiefly made in Germany and Switzerland, the cheap er kinds In the neighborhood of Nurem berg and the better qualities at Sonne burg, in Thuringla, from which latter place about twenty-four million articles, valued at 800,000, are annually export ed. Largo quantities of wooden toys are also made in Saxony, where an in genious process is in uso for diminishing the labor involved in the priluction of animals. A circular block of soft-wood is turned into a ring of such a pattern that by slicing it vertically a rough rep resentation of an animal (say an ele phant) is secured. Each rudimentary figure is then trimmed by hand, the ears, trunk, tusks and tail, all of which are separately turned and sliced by the same method, are Inserted; and when the animal has been painted and var nished it is ready for use. . Clay marbles also com exclusively from Saxony, being made of a clay not found elsewhere. The Ijetter qualities Come from Holland, where they are made from fragments of alabaster and other stones. Taw and alley, the com mon names for the two qualities princi pally used in this country, are abbrevia tions of tawny and alabaster. A great ten days' toy fair is annually bold at Leipsic, when more than, six thousand merchants exhibit their goods in every available Inch of space, even in the garrets of the six-storied houses. Marburg, in llessen, is chiefly occupied with the manufacture of musical toys, while , Hiberach, In Wurtemburg, is noted for substantial metal articles, such as carriages, locomotives, furniture, etc The specialty of Switzerland is wooden cottages, models, etc. Some of the large dealers do very well out of: the industry, but the actual toy-makers in both countries are mis erably paid, and find it very bard, even by the most unremitting toil, to gain a subsistence from their employ ment, many of them being obliged to supplement their earnings by engaging In out-door labor during tho summer. The productions of Holland are very similar to those of Germany. Cham bers' Journal. vim ii runi(iinu Wan at Virtue. (Kt. bourn Globe-Democrat.
