eight inches of tho end, which re
mains open. Put legs under this box
and set It high enough so that a pall
or a bag can bo set under tho open
end bottom to catch tho grains of
corn as they come' from the sheller.
If a bag Is used, hooks will have to
be put in the sides of the bottom of
the box on which to hang the bag.
A high lox or a pull, would be pre
ferable to the bag. The cost of mak
ing Oils device Is very small, any one
with a few tools can do it, and It
will certainly save both corn and labor.

in a tight wooden box. Water is

Ailments can be classed as colds, in
digestion, vices and accidents.
A cold, accompanied by rattling, Is
called bronchitis; by gasping, pneumo
nia. Canker in the mouth may extend to
throat and become diphtheria. The
diphtheria of fowls and man are dif
ferent according to veterinarians, but
attendants on sick birds have been
known to take poultry diphtheria.
When a fowl sneezes, waters slightly
ot eyes and nostrils, and dumps, it has
a common cold, not regarded as a germ
When face and head swell a good
deal, and tho discharge from nostrils
is profuse, fowls have roup, or influ
enza. Irregularity of habit is apt to
accompany colds of all kinds.
If you have a scratching room in
which to drive tho flock, fumigate with
sulphur their lodging-room. If you
have no suitable place for them to go,

The S lull-Fed Cow.
Somehow muny dairymen have
reuched the wrong conclusions when
reading of dairy farms where the
cows are stull-fed the year round. It
by no means Is Intended that the
cows shall have no outdoor exercise;
on the contrary, except for cows that
are on pasture entirely, during the
summer, few cows are more intelli
gently exercised and proper ventila
tion furnished them than stall-fed
animals properly brought up. At regu
lar hours the animals are turned into
commodious barnyards for air and
exercise. During the winter this out
door exercise is as carefully looked
after as during the summer, and, in
the majority of cases, tho cows oc
cupy only sleeping hours and milking

Don't be afraid of the fresh air for

than all, see that the stables are
properly ventilated and aired. There
are a number of devices for this pur
pose, and one of the best of" them is
the window frame covered with mus

and foul air predispose the cow to tu?

The fair season has been exception
ally gratifying. Upon the whole, the
agricultural exhibitions throughout
the country have been better than
usual. Fakes have been discouraged
and legitimate exhibits have benefited
The issue of complete catalogues, using
plain numbers conspicuously over
each animal or other exhibit and re
ferring to tliem In the catalogue, has
attracted favorable attention wher
ever It has been adopted. Individual
exhibitors have assisted the manage

printed, bearing their name and the
name of the exhibit and other infor
motion for the benefit of those attend
lug. The value of an exhibit is lost
unless the visitor can learn quickly
something definite In regard to it.
Take Care of the Plows.
When plowing Is done, clean and dry
your plow, then apply a heavy coat of
paint, says an Ingenious Dakota farm
er in an exchange. It is best applied
with a soft brush. If no such brush Is
at hand, one is very easily made by
clipping the end of a horse's tall, and
by means .of a string fasten same se
curely to a stick. Allow paint plenty
of time to dry, and in case some of
it should get rubbed off before it is
properly dried, apply another coat. To
remove the paint when the plow is to
be used again, pour on strong lye wa
ter the night before, and in the morn,
lng rub off the dry paint If it does
not come off clean, apply another soak
ing of lye water, which will complete
the Job, and you will have a plow that
Is smooth and will scour from the
Corncob Ashe Valuable.
Of all things on the farm corncobs
are the most valuable for ashes, as
from 15 to 20 per cent of the ash Is
pure potash, and yet corncobs are
thrown "away on most farms. Every
1,000 pounds of hardwood ashes will
give about sixty pounds of potash, or
0 per cent of the whole, and when com
pared with corncobs the latter are
much more valuable in the shape of
ashes. Save corncobs and burn them
with wood In the kitchen stove, saving
the ashes for the orchard and lawn.
