Feeding the Work Horse.
A Bank Greenhouse.
Where the "lay” of the laud is favor­
able. a very convenient greenhouse or
forcing house can be constructed after
the plan shown in the accoinpauyiny
illustration. The basement is carried
into the btlnk only far enough to give
room for a heating apparatus and the
storing of necessary fuel. The green­
house floor is partly below the surface,
the walls here, as well as in the case
of the basement, being laid up with
In feding the working horse I would
feed corn and oats, equal parts, either
ground or whole, and if convenient
change from marsh bay to clover. Corn
meal should not be fed without some
dllutent. The bran of oats is sufficient
to prevent it becoming a pasty mass in
the stomach.
If meal is not mixed
with ground oats or with bran, it
should be fed with dampened cut bay
or cut sheaf oats
With a ration of
corn, oats and timothy hay or marsh
hay. either bran or oil meal or sprouts
should be added, say six pounds of
bran a day. or if oil meal two pounds a
day, or three to five pounds of sprouts.
If fed in the ear. corn may be fed three
times a day, with oats and bran added
at noon and night, with less corn. A
good day's feed for a l.LW-pound horse
is 14 pounds of hay, 10 pounds of corn
meal. (i pounds of oats and 6 of bran.
In place of bran one may use two
pounds of oil meal. If he feeds clover
hay he dues not need either bran or oil
meal. Corn should never lie omitted
from the ration of a horse at hard
work, just as meat is essential in the
food for laboring men. I once knew a
teamster hauling gravel to say that ten
ears of corn at a feed (thirty ears a
day) did not keep his horses up. He
was told to quit counting corn, ami

rough field stones. The entrance is at
the further eud. steps down from the
doorway to the greenhouse floor being
provided. Such a building will be ex­
ceedingly warm in winter, not only be­
cause of the earth bank, but because
heat cnn be generated and sent to a
floor above much more readily than it
can be generated upon and diffused
over a single floor.—American Agricul­
Farm Economy.
Profits on the farm are much greater
when the averages for several years
are compared, as each year must bear
its proportion of expense, and a failure
to secure a profit this year may not be
a loss, because there may be a corre­
sponding reduction of expense next
year. Nor must we overlook the ad­
vantage of the opportunity offered the
farmer of selling his own labor in the
form of some product. Where a farm­
er makes only a small profit, but has
derived a fair sum for the labor he per­
sonally bestowed, his gain is greater
than the actual profit. The farm has
increased in value as the labor or
manure or other accretion has failed to
yield a reasonable cash profit. On the
farm the item of labor must be consid­
ered according to its actual cost as an
expenditure. Though the labor of the
farmer himself is an item of cost, and
must be paid for. yet he pays it to him­
self, and it really is profit because of
the employment secured by him on the
farm. For that reason a small farm, or
a small flock or herd, will always pay
more, in proportion to expense incurred,
than larger areas or an increase of
stock.—Grange Homes.
A Wiiiter Feed Cooker.
Warm mashes are desirable for fowls
and hogs in winter. To cook the food
with but little labor, take half a barrel
and set it in a grocery box. filling in
about it with chaff. Make two covers,
one to fit inside the barrel, the other
to shut tightly down over the box. Put
in the meal and wet it soft with one or
more pails of boiling water. Do this
at night and close tightly. The mass
will cook all night long and be nice and
Lime is not used as much as former­
ly, and yet it is one of the most essen­
tial substances entering into the com­
position of plants. It is not only plant
food, but it exerts a chemical effect on
the soil, which brings into use other
materials widen are beyond the capaci­
ty of plants to reduce. When green food
is turned under, lime will be found a
valuable adjunct, as it combines with
them. It is a heavy substance and has
a tendency to go down, hence, if broad­
casted on tlie surface of a field, it will
sooner or later be within the reach of
plants. Some lime that has been air­
slacked until it is fine is better than any
other form, and that from the gas
works (mostly sulphites and sulphides)
should not be procured. Every farm
should be limed occasionally, as the
benefit is sure to be much more than
the cost and no harm can result.
Cures a Horse's Rheumatism,
Horses troubled with rheumatism
have been treated successfully with
Turkish baths. Trainer Patterson gave
Hamburg one a few weeks ago and the
king of 2-year-olds came out of the
bath as supple as a youngster. The
Sparrows Destroying Grapes.
It is becoming extremely difficult
near cities to grow and ripen grapes,
because of the attacks of sparrows on
this fruit so soon as it begins to color.
Fortunately this pest does not go far
from cities and large villages, where it
finds plenty of feed scattered in the
streets, and where the warmth from
city houses affords it partial shelter.
But we have learned enough al>out
the habits of the sparrow to know that
it is a pest that should be destroyed
wherever seen. In England thousands
of boys are employed to watch grain
fields and drive the sparrows away.
But even after all this care millions of
dollars' worth of grain is destroyed by­
them every year.—Exchange.
Barreling Pork.
When the time for putting up pork
approaches the barrels for that purpose
should be got out of the cellar and thor­
oughly scalded. No beef barrel should
ever be used for |>ork, for no matter
how thorough the scalding ft gets, some
germs will remain and taint the pork.
Where j>ork has been kept in good con­
dition the brine is often used a second
time, after thoroughly boiling ft and
skimming off the refuse so long as any
appears. But It is perhaps better to use
the pork brine as a fertiliier for quince
trees. [Hitting one or two quarts only
around each tree. There is much nutri­
tion taken from lean pork by the brine
when the pork is salted, and this is ex­
cellent fertiliser for the quince. As for
A scheme to increase the efficiency
of oil to still the waves of the ocean in
a storm has been thought out by Wil­
liam Guthrie, of Chicago. His notion
is baaed on the argument that if oil has
a pacifying effect when distributed on
the water in the immediate neighbor­
hood of the ship in trouble, it« effect
would be magnified if the oil could be
applied at a distance all about the ship,
thus creating a calm circle, in which
the ship could ride in safety until the
storm had spent its fury. His proposi­
tion is to shoot saturated sponges or cot­
ton from a pneumatic gun, that being
preferable to a powder gun, as there
would be no danger of igniting the oil-
soaked sponge. Some people interested
in shipping have been impressed with
the idea and application is to be made
to congress for an appropriation to test
its efficiency.

Recent French experiments have de­

that certain persons possess a magnetic
polarity—that is, they act as magnets,
having north and south poles. Such a
person, when completely undressed
and placed near a sensitive galvanome­
ter, will, when turned on a vertical
axis, cause a tieflection first in one di­
rection and then in the opposite, just
as a magnet would. All persons do not
possess this polarity. Professor Mu-

ment was tried, exhibited this phenom­

While it is well understood that salt
is not a manure, it is so good a solvent
of other minerals that where they ex­
ist in the soil it may always be used
with advantage We have often ad­
vised farmers to apply both potash and
phosphate to apple orchards. But if
this is done every year It is probable
that some of these minerals revert to
an insoluble condition. Whenever the
apple trees set full for bearing it will
pay while giving the usual annual
dressing of potash and phosphate to
add some salt to it, which will lie much
cheaper and probably more effective
than supplying directly the minerals
