Waste of the fruit crop is one of the
causes of greatest loss. Many who
cannot dispose of the crop in a fresh
state alliov it to f-ot or feed it to stock.
I have found it profitable to evaporate
what apples could not be sold fresh
and so constructed an evaporator. The
plan was original with me and has
worked to perfection. The building is

Many fnrms are so situated that the i
cattle must be driven across a high
way to pasture. This almost always
affords trouble. *The cattle will break
away up and down the-highway to
feed by the roadside, instead of cross

gate to the lane leading to the barn.
A device is shown herewith that may
prove of assistance in such cases. A

Timothy grass is usually left too late
before it is cut. It does not have the nu
trition of clover at any stage, ami if left
until its seed ripens, mych that was nu

allowing the head to blossom. Then it
needs to ripen Its seed so as to get be

say that timothy seed is very nutritious.

What really keeps up the
strength of timothy-fed horses Is the
cut feeding that goes with It. The best
time to cut timothy Is Just as it comes
into head and before It blossoms. The
hay will not weigh so much then, but
it has more available nutrition than It
will have later.
According to a writer in Farm and
Fireside, where tlie tomato vine is
trained to a single four-foot stake the
ripening of the to

increased size and

compensate for the

kept for the suckers which put out
from the main stalk and retard the
proper development of the tomato
plant. The sprouts, or auxiliary suck

off. or broken off if the pinching lias
been delayed too long. If this is done
and the vines have been tied to the
stakes with not less than three strings,
as the growth lias been continuous, the

of the tomato season.

DEATH FROM FIRE.
Lethal Sleep Enfolds the Victim Be
fore the Flame Reaches Him.
‘‘Those who lose tlielr lives in con
flagrations do not by any means al
ways suffer physical pain. In many
cases, no doubt, sharp terror is the
one thing of which the victim is con
scious, and in many more, strange as
it may seem, consciousness plays no
part, life ceasing painlessly and with
out a^struggle. I11 great conflagrations
gases are produced which have much
the same effect as chloroform or sim
ilar anesthetics, and it is a fact thnt of
of those who lose their lives in such
catastrophes a considerable proportion
pass into death without any evidence
of liavit g suffered. This result is pro
duced especially when 11 fire lias smol
dered. when the access of air has
first been insufficient to cause complete
combustion, and when that dead! - gas,
carbonic oxide, lias sent Its victims into
lethal sleep liefore the actual flames
lave reached them.
"Of those, however, who have evi
dently s niggled and fought and whose
«•liai i ed < orpses are afterward found in
attitudes suggestive of violent efforts
made in attempting to escape it must
not be imagined that they have of ne
cessity been burned alive and have

passed, and tlie strained attitude of the
corpse may Is- expressive only of the
Until paroxysmal effort made in a state
of entire unconsciousness.
"Suffocation in fire depends on some
thing more than mere carbonic acid
poisoning. It is the stoppage of the
breathing by the stifling vapors which
does the mischief. Carbonic acid
would doubtless kill if it could lie
breathed. but anyone who lias attempt
ed to enter a burning building will
knot* that suffocation depends not on
.be stuff one breathes, but on the fact
than one cannot breathe at all. The
lungs are as much deprived of their
supply of oxygen as if the sufferer
were plunged over head In water, and
the struggle produced is much the
same. While, then, we must admit the
horror of the moment, the terror, the
tight for breath, and finally the death
from suffocation, we must remember
that all this is often a matter of short
duration, and that it is something very
uifferent from the slow torture of be-
ing burned alive.”—The Hospital.
