AUm Wars la the Foaltry Yard. IX Benjamin, luevns county, N. Y gives the following sensible advice: If the young cockerels that are fit for sale have not already been disposed of this ought to be done at once, or the surplus inclosed in yards separated from the pullets and fed preparatory to marketing or for home consumption. Where eggs are the special object the above advice is all important. Unfertilized eggs are not only more desirable for the table and market and keep longer, but hens kept in separate pens will lay longer and set less than others. As a rule old hens are unprofitable, though there are exceptional cases, as when these are good layers. Generally speaking, old fowls onght to be weeded out from the flock. The present is a good season for disposing of them, as they will lay more now than a little later on. The early pullets will begin to lay now, provided they are not moved about too much and are properly fed. Buckwheat is one of the most soluble of grains for the production of eggs. Barley, wheat, rye and oats are also acceptable grains. Sunflower seeds, the seeds of common millet, sorghum, broomcorn, etc., may be used to vary the list. This grain food must be supplemented with green stuff of one kind or another, as soft cabbage heads, onions, lettuce, etc; also with meat scraps and an occasional relish of chopped peppers in cold weather. Do not make the mistake of overfeeding, but keep tbe laying hens in an active, hnn-gry state. Laving hens should not have too much soft food; this is fattening and belongs to fowls penned for fattering. Wet weather and the first cold nights may produce colds and sneezing. Be on the alert or yon will quickly hifve roup to contend with. Are Hm Assessed as Property? A. I. Root, editor of Gleanings in Bee Culture, being called upon to express an opinion as to whether bees are assessed as property or not. replied as follows: I do not know what the prevailing cus tom is, but I think bees should be assessed with other property. In fact, if the assessor should pass by my bees 1 should feel slighted. If hives of bees are not property then we had better all of us quit tbe bee business. This matter has been up before, and there was some discussion on it some years ago. I do not want anything from my neighbors nnless it justly belongs to me: neither do I want anything nor any privilege from the government of the United State unless it is fairly mine. Of course I agree that there are things of so little use. or of a value so uncertain, that it is not worth while to tax them. If your bees and fixtures would not sell at public sale, then I should say they were not worth taxing. As hives of bees do, however, sell for something with other stock, this customary selling price, it would seem to me, should be the proper value of taxation. Tha Cheek Bala. There should be some one to enlighten the amateur horseman in the proper use of the check rein. When they see a horse hitched they go home and try the same plan, frequently checking a colt up as high as they can and start in to break him. The result is that nine out of ten are practically spoiled, and develop a dislike for the check, and it U years before they are cured of the habit of tossing their heads. If the beginner would use a little forethought and check a colt np gradually he would soon find the natural position and avoid future trouble. Under such treatment the colt will soon learn to drive pleasantly and speed without pulling. It is never safe to check a colt np until such a point is reached, as be will do hie work easier and with more determination. In nearly every town an observing man sees horses speeded np the streets, over crosswalks, with their heads stuck np in the air, as if they were taking astronomical lesson.1. Such a method is not the way to make a good driving horse or even a safe roadster, as he has not liberty enough to see his way or What is going on around him. Horseman. The Three Beat Grapes. The New Jersey State Agricultural society, balloting for the best three grapes for general use, one of each color, decided in favor of the Brighton, red; Worden, black, and Niagara, white, and few grape growers in that state would today make any alteration in the list. CIDER MAKING. Bow to Obtala a Clear and Finely Flavored Beverage from Good Apples. First see that the apparatus to be used Is clean and sweet. The apples may be prepared for expressing the juice, either by squeezing or crushing, as in the old ways of cider making, or by some of the modern processes that reduce the fruit to a finer pulp. Whatever may be gained in 6peed. a slow process of crushing, where the fruit only comes in contact with wool, will excel in quality. There are various forms of screw presses, from which one can be selected to suit the circumstances of the case. The pomace should remain overnight, or at least several hours, in the receiving trough before being pressejl The cheese, as it is called, consists of the pomace confined in press clots, or, more commonly among farmers, a succession of layers, held in place under the screws by clean straight straw turned over the edge of each layer in a manner familiar to all Tural cider makers. The juice being expressed, it at once becomes important to free it as completely as possible from the particles held in solution. These, by their decomposition, hasten and increase the vinous fermentation, which if not properly treated will be soon followed by the vinegar stage. This process should begin by straining or filtering the juice before fermentation sets in. A convenient filter may be made from a clean tight barrel, with faucet through a stave near the bottom. Take ont the other bead and fit in a false bottom with boles thickly bored through it, just above tbe faucet. Lay some narrow wooden strijsi CToeswiae overthe fab bottom to Hold np tbe coarse cloth first laid over it On this place a layer cf cotton wool, thrni another coarse cloth, to be followed by three or four inch of very clean straw, then cloth and straw alternately nnttl the bwrH is three-fonrths full when well pressed down. Stmining thrown a layer of cleanly washed, finely broken charcoal or pure sand is another method. If the filtered Juice can i put Into large caidcs holding three or four lm and standing upright, with open heads, for ahort time nntil fermentation le-gins it will lie much better than to Uir- rel it at once. These ranks should m provided with famvt a few inches from the tmttom. through which the dear ci der can tie drawn off. leavinir another qnite large deposit of fine sediment nn-disturbeL The scum on the ton should lie skimmed off as occasion require. The cider should then I lrr led and kept in a cool place, as tightly bunged as the fermentation, which will still continne for a time, will admit. Under the best system of cleaning it from impurities, early made cider, nnh-w it can Iw kept in an uncommonly low temperature, or is treated with chemicals or scalded to kill fermentation, will grow too acid to be agreeable. The later cider making ran be deferred the better the cider will be as a beverage and the longer it will keep, says The New York World, authority for the foregoing. Oralng Reef. First cover the meat for the space of twenty-four hours with brine strong enough to barely float an egg; then take it out and wash it in cold water, pressing It with the hands so as to squeeze out all the blood. The brine that has been used should then be thrown away, as it is the blood that is so often retained in the pickle that causes it to sour and spoil. Make a second pickle a trifle weaker than tbe first, in which you have dissolved three pounds of brown sugar and two ounces of saltpeter to a hundred pounds of beef, or in these proportions for smaller quantities. Should a scum appear on tbe surface before the meat is used np. the brine must be scalded and skimmed and ponrod back when quite ecld. Tbe package containing it should be kept in a cool place, and the meat should always be kept under the brine. When, from neglect, a portion of the beef remains out of the brine for a day or two it will affect it unfavorably; for this reason it should be frequently examined and should never be left in that con dition. Proper Temperature In Setting Milk. On the question of proper temperature in setting milk Professor Henry reports Milk set at 40 degs. for eleven hours threw up all but 44.1 of 1 per cent., while milk at 4-5 degs. left 2.7 per cent. of butter in the skim milk. Setting at 50 degs. as compared with 45 degs. showed a loss from 3.8 to 10 per cent.. and 55 degs. shows that the range of losa is from 15.8 to SO per cent, over that set at 45 degs. Thine That Are Told. The American Cultivator says that it is a mistaken notion that deep seeding is somehow a protection against winter killing by the ground heaving and thaw ing. Experience and observation are largely curing farmers of this delusion. A correspondent in The New York Ex aminer says that his way of protecting sheep from dogs is to bouse them at night and let them run in pasture with a herd of horned cattle in the day time. He keeps no dog, and his cattle look on all dogs as enemies and make short work of them when they come near. All stone fruits are churned to be benefited by potash fertilizers more than by the application of manure. A new roof may be exper jive, but it is cheaper than damp stables or barns and sick animals. The animals hve no warm stoves in winter, and dryness is therefore essential Or. Hosklns. of Vermont, says that he regards the Switzer apple as nearest perfection, in quality almost equal to tbe Fameuse. larger, free from spots,, the tree very hardy, and a free and elegant grower. The prolific sweeting, like some other fruits termed prolific." is remarkably unproductive. Roup may generally be traced to want of cleanliness, improper ventilation or undue exposure, and the poultryuian who has provided against these causes is reasonably safe against the roup. More injury is wrought by suppressing part of the truth than by publishing pages of falsehood. The human heart is like afeather bed. It must be roughly handled, well shaken and exposed to a variety of turns to prevent it becoming hard. First Kentucky Citizen Our county is going to vote on the liquor traffic.

For many years, the proprietors of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy, who are thoroughly responsible, financially, as any one can easily ascertain by proper enquiry, have offered, in good faith through nearly every newspaper in the land, a standing reward of 500 for a case of nasal catarrh, no matter bow ! kadi or of long standing, which they can not cure. The Remedy, which is sold by druggists at only 50 cents, is mild, soothing, cleansing, antiseptic and healing. Religious. ', THE KKLKHOUS WOULD HOW THE G03PSL IS TO THE DEAF AND PnEACHEO DUMB.

That the efforts in that direction have been successful beyond all exjiectation is shown by a - visit to any one of the numerous institutions for the education of deaf mutes that are now to be found scattered all over the Union. One of the instrumentalities effective in this humane ana Curwmtn work lias been the improved sign language, known as tne irauauuet system, wnereuy tne deaf mute can give absolutely full ex pression to his ideas, intelligently to others. This sign language as now used among deaf mutes here and in Europe was the invention of the Abbe l'Epee, who founded the first institution for their education. It is said to have been suggested to him by observing tbe pantomimic gestures of the Parisian street gamins. The spiritual training of these unfor tunates is a matter of the greatest solid' tude, and the labors of Rev. Or. Gallan- det. Or. Peet and those associated with them in this task have been abundantly blessed. . The great truths of the gospel have been made familiar to the souls to whom God and Christ were unknown. and seed has been sown which has al ready blossomed in many instances into noble and beautiful Christian lives. Among those who have done much to enlarge the mental and moral horizon of tbe deaf mute is Professor Isaac Lewis Peet. LL. D., principal of the educational department of the New York Institution for the Deaf and Dumb. lie is the son of the founder of the insti tution. the late Harvey Prindle Peet This splendidly organized public charity was chartered in 1817 by Governor De Witt Clinton, of New York, and was the first of seven similar establishments for the training of the unfortunate deaf mates.

Christian Herald. Our Hold on God. Communication exists between city and city, between continent and continenttelegraphic, telephonic, postal and by messenger: yet many seem to think that there are no lines np between heaven and earth. Tbe interspace to many is a trackless desert. Who is your God? Is he deaf and pitiless? Is he enthroned 6tupiJity? That is uot our God. Our God is a father, all tenderness and sympathy and love, never sending trouble of any kind save to make ns pure and good and elevated and Christian. His eyes are full of pity, his bauds are full of help. Oh, drive np your flocks of cares and griefs to this fountain of the rock and let them drink. If you want anything ask for it and you shall have it. or something better. In the direction of prayer is to be the chief victory. I believe the time will come when physicians will come to a jtttient. kneel down and pray to God for direction, and then rise and give the medicine that will make infallible cure. The time will come when, drought apiiearing, multitudes will gather in prayer, and independent of all weather probabilities, and without any reference to which way the wind blows, the rain will descend in torrents. When Elijah prayed for rain he did not look to see which way the wind blew. Open an account with God on this subject. 1 took a blank book and put on the front pages the things for which I would especially pray, leaving the opposite pages open for record of divine answer. And they have aD been answered. Some of them not in the way 1 expected, but all answered. There is no need of a man talking to me about prayer being an absurdity. I know of what I speak. Any man may know this if he will only test the Lord. The trouble is many of us are afraid of being laughed at for our credulity. Laying aside all our cowardice and all our infidelity, let us lay hold of God in an enthusiasm of supplication. Let them laugh who win. A young man went off from his mother's house, went off to sea.

Her long absent son had returned, and the first words he uttered on entering the old homestead were, "Mother, thought yon would pray me home.

Yon envy this experience, but you do not realize the fact that that man has gone through many rapids of temptation, and may have had a violent fall. The Abolishment of Death. Paul in his Second Epistle to Timothy tells him that Jesus Christ, by his "appearing in our world as a saviour. "bath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel" (II Tim. i. 10). It is said in the Epistle to the Hebrews that "forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he (Christ) also himself likewise took part of the same, that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is the devil, and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage" (Heb. ii, 14, 15). These passages contained good news for humanity. Death lias been styled "the king of terrors." No merely physical event in our earthly history is so terrible as that of death. In what sense, then, and to what extent is it true that Christ, by his "appearing" and "through death," has "abolished death" and also delivered "them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage?" Christ himself, in dying as a man. In rising from the dead, and in ascendiug in his humanity into heaven, is a living illustration and practical demonstration of the fact that death is not the absolute extinction of humanity. He survived this event, as to his entire humanity, including body and soul, and lived afterward, and is still living. The fact of immortality, notwithstanding his own death, is stamped upon the human elements of his history. It is true that he bowed his head in death ou the cross, but it was only to live again as the risen and ascended Jesus, and as the triumphant conqueror over death and the grave. The bands of death did not and could not hold him. and did uot and could not extinguish him. The gospel of Christ to which Paul refers as the medium' through which life and immortality are brought to light declares, that what was true of him. in his survival of death, is and will be true of all bis tieopla He conquered death for himself and for them: and as he lives bo will they also live in virtue of the union between him and them.

Tatrick Kane, a lunl carrier. fell into a pit of slack IttTio he was preparing at the yard of Rolxrt Ilorland. plasterer, and died a short tiinengn. Ho was a stajwart Lrinlnnan. CI years old, and MsvptKSel a record of Mibroken giod li'-alth, but on the dny the im client occurred he complained .f a sik lien!ailie. At tli close fif tli day's woik bis employer Afckcd him to prepare soino limo for the next day's work. Kane at l'rt declined on the plea that he was ill, but was finally persuaded to retttime work. None of the laborers were aliout the yard when Kane began working the lime.nnd his employer went lutck to the oClctf to calculate estimates fin some jobs in hand. About 7 o'clock Kane, who felt weary and tired, leaned heavily on the mixer with which he was stirring up the lime. The plank on which he stood had been thrown carelessly across the cornT of the box. LI is weight turned it over, and before he could regain his balance or utter a cry for help he fell full length into the boil-tug, bubbling lime. lie sank down, no iart of Lis body escaping contact with the burning liquid except his left arm aud the upper part of his face. Kane was a strong man, and though half blinded by the specks of lime that flashed np from the box, and suffering horribly from the mouthful of fiery liquid he had swallowed in bis fatal plunge, he crawled slowly ont, staggered a few paces and then fell prostrate on the sand heap, where he was found a few minutes later by his em ployer. From his shoulder downward the lime had eaten into his clothing and was slow ly making its way through the flesh of -the unconscious .man. The soles of his boots had dropped off, and his trousers. from the knee down, hung in shreds from his slowly consuming limbs. The sin on the upper part of his right arm, which was bared to the shoulder, had been burned away, and the muscles and tendons had succumbed to the destroyer. The nails of the fingers had dropped off almost immediately after coming into contact with the lime, and the hand was tightly clinched, as if to conquer the maddening pain. The liquid crept slow ly but relentlessly through his shirt, eat ing its destructive way and frightfully scorching his chest and back. The man was a mass of burning flesh and lime, and when Borland, hjs employer, found him on the sand heap the fatal lime had effectually done its deadly work. Iiorland rushed for the hose pipe, and attempted to check the progress of destruction by deluging Kane with cold water. Then, despairing of the man's life, he carried him to his buggy, with the lime eaten clothing still clinging to his body, and drove the injured man home. For a week Kane hovered between life and death. None of tho sufferers seen by Dante during hi journey through the Inferno could ever have endured the awful agony experienced by the dying hod carrier as the lime fairly scorched its way through his lungs. The sears on his body and limbs were hideous enough, but all chance of recovery was destroyed by the awful fire raging within. Kane bore bts sufferings with the fortitude of a stoic. So word of com plaint ever crossed his lips, and he show- ed no sign of tho great agony he felt except to lay bis uninjured hand on bis bosom and murmur, "My heart is burning away." The fiery fluid released him after a week'ssuffering. and Kane passed away unconscious of the approach of death. Chicago Herald. t'.lectrle Light Figures. New York state has 135 electric light stations, with So.Cfll arc lights. S.19.6-J9 incanileacents. and engines of r-S.TKS horse power, with a capitalization of fJ3,247.000. The nearest approach to New York Mate is made by Pennsylvania and California as to amount of in vestment, although Pennsylvania in other respects is fully eqnaled by Massa chusetts. Enormous as are these figures, it is not to be forgotten that they fall short of the actuality as regards the electric lighting industry of the whole country. There are probably from 73.000 to 100,- 000 arc lights in isolated plants in mills. factories, public buildings, etc., and probably over a million and a half to two million lncandchcents. Of these isolated plants there are about 4.000. Out side of the United States there are in the whole of North America, not forgetting Mexico, 114 central stations, with a capi tal stock of $5,500,000, operating 9,771 arc lights, 47,719 incandescents. with en gine capacity of 16,707 horse power.

Epoch. lils 1 ailli tailed. 'I renieinlier a negro in the southern states some years ago," said the old sol dier as ho Yetted his war worn frame in a chair at the 2ouingaheI:t honse. "He was an old man, and when tired sunning himself ou a log in the laneway he was accustomed to retire to the shade and doze. lie had a class of twenty or so little boys to whom he used to give Bible lessons, generally on Sunday after noon. "It was his practice to give ont on one Sunday the lessons to be prepared for the next. Hie old fellow was a little blind and a good bit deaf, and this fact Induced the young fellows to put np a joke on him. In the old boy s absence they glued two pages of the Bible to gether, and en the following Sunday sat expectant of how their little game would work. The old tutor pnt on his "specs. and giving a sympathetic glance at his class opened the Bible at the passage abont Noah s ark, and began to read. "He spelled ont the lesson to the end of the page 'and Noah took with him into the ark one ol every kind,' and so on, 'and one wife,' and turning over continued, 't-he was 143 cubits long and 50 wide, built entirely of cyprus wood and pitched inside and out. " 'Foh de Lawd's sake! What a woman! exclaimed the old darky, glancing wondenngly over the book at bis grin ning class. He paused and pondered over the wonderful dimensions of Noah's wife for many minutes, and then said: " 'Boys, we musn't doubt anythin' the book says, but take it as the other passage furder on, which says, 'We axe fearfully and wonderfully made." Pittsburg Dispatch. One Way of Looking at It. The BritUh soldiirrs invaded Connecticut In 1779, and during thrtr march thronifh Frfirdel l village Amnaed themselves by setting fire to all tbe publio and many private buildings, all of which were totally destroyed. Among the former was th (.Congregational church, at that time even a landmark by reason of Its age. The k'kkI tiwiple were incensed at tlm jmiceeding, as they ft It that the application of the match to hurt ben was unc alled for: but they were powerles to prevent it. They conld simply look on wh.le the structure was consuming, (u duo time another church was built on the Fame site, and it was twed down through the decades till early in June, when in some mysterious way it took fire and was destroyed. This circumstance, while it is a perplexing one. proves to have had one fortunate pliae, L e it gave the society an opiortunity, if there was any consolation in it, to make things even in part as regarded the old score, and in this way: Some years ago the church committee were instructed to insure the church property. They did so, placing a portion of tho amount with American companies, but the larger share with a British company. In the insurance adjustment the latter company was called on to pay, which it did promptly, the sum of f 15,000. One hundred and ten years was a long time, but the church, realizing the truth of an old saying, "Everything comes to them who wait," have as their reward the consciousness of having made in part at least old accounts square. New York Tribune. Aluminum the Barest Metal. Aluminum is now the rarest metal in the world, although it is the most useful, and the earth from which it can be reduced is found all over the globe in Ohio as well as far off India. The largest piece of aluminum in the world is the cap of the Washington monument. This weighs 100 ounces. A larger piece of the metal has never been produced. Not many years ago a Washington chemist discovered a process for the production of the metal. He thought it was perfect, and found no difficulty in getting $500,000 to back him up. A huge plant was erected in Tennessee and work was commenced. but no aluminum was produced. The professor's theory and experiments were all good enough, but they did not wwk upon a large scale. There have been dozens of bke experiences, and thousands of men are today trying to dis cover the iieriect method that wall be commercially practicable. New York Telegram. Money Invested In Electricity. Some recent authentic statistics show the extent to which the electric lighting industry has grown in this conutry. The returns from about 1,400 central stations aggregate a capital stock of $119,000,000, and this may be taken to be very near the amount actually invested, as the plants, owing to increases and reconstructions, frequently represent much more than the nominal share capital. These stations have a capacity of 137,000 arc lights and 1,500,000 incaudescents of 10 candle power, and the dynamos which supply current for these lights are operated by engines of 350,755 horse power.

Kansas City Times. - Never Mixed Hualness. A man with a box on his shoulder was making his way along Chambers street the other day when it fell to the walk. After two or three efforts to replace it he appealed to a man in a doorway with "Give me a lift, please "Can't do it," was the prompt reply. "And why not?" "Because 1 never mix business. I am a plumber and the man next door is in tho elevator business. It s for him to give you a lift." The man with the box thought for a moment, grinned in a good natured way. and by an extra grunt re-shouldered the box and passed on. New York Sun. Grant's Old War Unrse. The horse that Gen.
