COUNTRY BEGGAR. Tramp TOT* in the Ilurnl District! of th» Fr«nf:h Repabllc. It is necessary to make u distinction fcctwcen the beggar of tho city and the '•begffar of tho country. The latter is -lutiei 1 a vagabond. Ho is rather an xnntortunate affected with the malady •whfch a learned German physician, 09r. Benedict, has called claustrophobia — a hatred of confined places. The ^ommtry beggar cannot .remain in one ujpot; he constantly changes from place to plao*. t)o not propose to him any -•work even for lucrative returns, in the ^Bclds or in a shop. At tho end of two 'days he will jive back to you ypur rtooln. "It is necessary that I have a •whfrDge of nlr," he will say to you, and .3he will set forth upon the highway. In France these beggars are called ooheminonx, that is to say, the tramp* ••whom one meets always on the roads These tramps are tho terror of the MKWntry people. When they appear at •tthe door of a farmhouse in the evening aid demand hospitality for the niffht, •the fanner dare not repulse them. He that they will revenge themselves Irarninff his crops, tietidet, they •r travel .alone but always in •pMi«i vt three or four. know marralontly well • of the places through which they pass. When they meet upon the highway each will say to the other, "You will find a good place to sleep at such a farm, to eat at such an other place. In such a place is a house at which tho people will give you some money; at another place is a barracks of soldiers which it is necessary to avoid," The tramp who always asks for work but who rarely accepts it is easily transformed into a robber. He sees the plunder and lays 'his hands upon fowls, eggs, rabbits. Sometimes even, if he succeeds in gaining an entrance into the house and finds there any objects of value—silver, watches, jewelry, he watches for an opportunity to steal them. If tho objects havo a definite value he will conceal them in the fields, thep having reached the nearest city he will go to negotiate their sale with a receiver of stolen goods. In line weather these tramps sleep in tho open air. By the bounty of the world they are tourists enjoying their travels, All their lives they have been traveling and they havo no trouble in meeting tholr expenses, for the farmers through whose domains they pass supply them with all the necessities of life.— M. Louis Paulian, in Chau- tauquan. —After many years ol hard fifhtlng, the Sunday openingof picture galleries In London has been conceded by tho common council, but only .through the casting vote of the lord mayor. The council stood eighty-eight in favor and eighty-light ajrain.st the motion, and it was aroid much excitement that the lord mayor gave his casting vote. A motion to recind the resolution will come up at the next meeting, and the Sabbatarians yet hope to triumph. —The ex-president of the Royal college of veterinary surgeons of England says public drinking troughs for horses are a curse to horseflesh, as thev spread farcy and glanders, A considerable ventilation of the matter is In progress, and it seems to be conceded by experts that the danger is in the contact of the horses' mouths and not so much in their using tho same troughs.

PRETTY RABBIT PEN. It Ji Eanlljr Made mid ProaenU an Attractive Appnurance. To encourage my boy in learning the ; use of tools, I designed and helped him make an ornamental rabbit pen (Fig. 1). A box of inch stuff two by four feet and sixteen inches deep was procured, the top taken off and and the open part placed on the ground. Four strips each one by two inches and four feet long were nailed to tho box, a cross strip of the same sizo two feet Ions 1 being nailed in across tho center to complete tho framework of Uie foundation (Fig. S). A part of ono hide of the box was removed and fitted with hinges to be riO. 1.—PERSPECTIVE VIKW Ol' UADBIT PES. used as ti flap door, and two round- topped holes were cut in the front part of the box for doors between the back and front of tho peu. On the foundation in front, a floor of four-footboards was nailed, projecting a iittla beyond tho framework Strips like those used for the foundation were nailed in tho same manner about the top of the box and doored over. On this framework five pairs of one by two-inch rafters, cut for one-fourth pitch, and projecting four Inches, were securely nailed. Four strips of one nnd one-half by one- inch stuff were bored at intervals of one and one-half inches with a one- fourth inch bit, and of these the front cage was constructed by inserting one- fourth inch round iron rods cut to fourteen-inch pieces, tho strips being securely nailed at top, bottom and corners. Tho middle pair of rafters supported a partition in the roof with a hole between the compartments. An- JTO. •FKAMEWOltlC OF BABBIT PEN. otlier hole for ingress to the attic was left in the floor in \he back room. The roof was sheathed with three- fourths-inch boards, ard a cornice fitted on eaves and ^able. It was then shingled, and a neat cresting' added to the comb. The back gable was boarded up with vertical pieces and fitted with a small hinged door. The front gable was finished by nailing on vertical slats with pointed bottom ends, made of one-half by three-fourths-inch pine, A pit was dug- one and one-half by three feet in size and two feet deep, and lined with boards around the sides. The back part of the pen was placed directly over tho pit. Grown rabbits could jump easily from tho pit into the front cage, and the little ones remained in the caffe until too larpfe to get out through the wires. Rabbits dig down in tho pit and construct their own breeding places in burrows beneath the pen. The pen proved'to be warm in winter, cool in summer and well adapted for keeping rabbits. With a long- handled shovel all refuse could bo easily removed from the pit through the trap door, and the pen never became offensive. With a pair- of white rabbits and their younp, the pen was a pretty sight at tho back of the lawn, and was always attractive to visitors. It was painted with dark red mineral paint and trimmed with white, which harmonized well with ^he bright green lawn and the dark green foliaif* of the shrubbery. —American Agricul turist. FACTS FOR FARMERS. IF you think of going into the fruit business study tho markets and don't raise crops Jor which there is no demand. BLACK knot on plum and cherry trees should be removed at once by cutting out all branches three inches below each knot, WHEST we export millions of bushels of wheat out of the country wo send away tho wealth—the fertility of the soil—and it will be only a question of time before the soil is Impoverished. IT is said that if a team is inclined to pull unevenly tho trouble may be remedied by unhitching the inside traces end crossing them, so aa to have the same horses attached to the same end of each singletree, AN -animal thoroughly heated by rapid driving on a cold day should be kept moving lively until he reaches the stable. Neglect of all this precaution has resulted in many a fatal case of pneumonia. THE secret of pruning !• never to permit a useless limb to grow. The or- chardist who follows this method will find the present a busy season. When the trees are examined for borer*, pinch out all excessive growth. VEBBENAS are easily itartod either in the house or out of doors, require rich, mellow soil and plenty ol sunshine and moisture. They give an abundance of bloom and amply repay one for tne care bestowed on them, To Keep ExpentM Down, The farmer who buy* what he can produce at home (and many of them do 10) suffers a loss, u he •tumid take advantage of the home market and thug, get a better price for;;ifc labor. Th'ej: aim to urow a full supply of all that is needed for thu family, if possible, aud the profit will be frn-ater. Luxuries HIM be had with a garden and small fruits. „ CAUSE OF TUBERCULOSIS. The DlniiBfn I« Simply n Question of Too Much Give and Ttvko. It would bo well for dairy farmers to pause and. ask themselves what is tlio cause of the rapid spread of this disease, practically unknown until within a few years. Have we in developing the cows to their utmost capacity weakened their constitutions? It would appear as if this question would have to be answered in the affirmative. Tho production of milk is a serious drain on the system of any human being' or animal, and, in the case of the cow, is often continued with little or no respite all tlio year round and j'ear after year. In order to obtain the largest possible returns, the cows are kept in warm stables and given as much rich food as tliey can consume. While the owner thus succeeds in obtaining abnormal yields of railk, he has also succeeded in giving his cows delicate constitutions. They have become like hothousib plants, which fade away nnd die at the slightest exposure to the rude blast These hothouse constitutions render their possessors easy victims of disease, Jlcnce the spread of tuberculosis. Some people claim that the Jersey is the breed most liable to this disease, and, b.y way of proof, point to the fact of the number slaughtered for tuberculosis beiiifr greater in proportion thun that of any other breed, itut the writer does not hold this vi<;w. More Jerseys have been slaughtered simply because being, as a rule, more valuable than animals of the other breeds, more care has been bestowed upon them; they bavo had more coddling and coddling and delicacy go hand in hand. Tho Jerseys are of themselves quite as robust' as their rivals. It is not the breed, but tha system of caring- for thorn that is at fault. Tuberculosis is simply a question of too much give and take. Let tho cows havo more fresh air and exercise, cooler if not cold stables, and a smaller quantity of less nutritious food. You will then get less milk, but what is lost in that quarter will be made up in the possession of a longer-lived animal, and if you do not enjoy the envy of your neighbors at your milk supply, neither will you receive their pity for your slaughtered pets.—N.

A TERRIBLE REVc.NGE. Destroyed It Foxiesncs Ittauy Features Assuring Comfort unit Convenience. We have received a description of a hog house from Mr. J. Barber, of Cass county, Mich.,of which we have had a cut made. It is described as follows: The building is 80x20 feet, 14-foot posts up to the eaves. The driveway is JO feet wide so that a team and wagon can pass through the pens, 10 feet wide first floor, 6 feet in the clear; upstairs or second story is 8 feet to eaves. First 14 feet upstairs over the first two pens is partitioned ofT for bran house with steps over the first pen to bran house. The balance is used for corn by driving through and throwing out of wa-jfon at husking time, and will hold 2,000 bushels of car corn. If you want ft - itOOff *»* GROUND PLAN OF HOG BABN. more room, lay heavy stringers across the drive; commence at the far end from where you drive in, lay boards and fill in corn over driveway 10 feet at a time; the corn can be thrown out of windows overhead; pens can be arranged in size to suit the owner. I find this plan convenient. The 20-foot pen is a general purpose pen for grown stock, shoats or brood sows or feed floor. Tho doors thus arranged will allow opportunity for shifting hogs from one pen to another, or letting in the drive at will. Each pen will require a slide window to throw out manure and give air and light in hot weather; put troughs before pens in driveway, and 15-barrel tank at side of drive; pipe water from windmill. On a cold day feed and water in a warm and dry place. The troughs are arranged to slope in front of pens in driveway. I use a 18-foot plank hardwood for floor- Ing driveway without floor. Arrange yards to suit pens inside; one window in barn house and two windows in driveway; slide windows overhead for throwing out corn iu yard if necessary, and ventilator. If a wall is desired to set the building on, use stone, as hogs will eat out brick and let down building. Hog yard ought to open in barnyard. It is best to arrange to drive through building, but I back team out. I think 8 foot wide is enough for drive that gives 12 for pens, which Is better; building to be set on a 3-foot stone wall, which makes it warm for pigs.— Prairie Farmer, W« H»ie Too Many Ncrubi. Too many scrubs are kept on American farms. In a land that produces such a inrplus of feedstuffs at «uch small cost, and where pure-bred sires are now attainable at almost nominal cost, such a state of affairs is beyond comprehension. It is a disgrace to American agriculture that in this land of plenty, as respects all kinds of fodder and fattening foods, there should be *uch a percentage of inferior farm animals. Every farmer can replace all ill-shaped, thriftless beast* by well, formed early-maturing stock, and thousands are contributing nothing but scrubs to tne low-priced, unsalable farm stock with which our country i* Cursed and by which onr market* are flooded.—Breeders'Gazette. .Smiillpox-Inrrctrd lUnnkHs Scores or Indiana. John Ferris, the veteran sta^e driver, who in the early fifties drove the sta^e on the overland route between Independence, Mo., and .S;uit;i. Fu, was re- luting some of hih interesting experiences to a group of friends tlu> other day when lie told a. story, the circumstances of which will be recn-llcd by many of the pioneer citizens of St. Louis and the western country. "The smallpox outbreak among the Coir.anchc Indians in the year of ISM," said he, "caused a stir Ihroujrnout the wcstei-n country. I carried the first news of tliat devastating pliip-ne to the outside world. I \vas making onc °f my rcynlnr trips from Sn.ntn Fc to Independence, when 1 Mopped atasinn.ll trading post situated on the Neosho river. There was great excitement among the few white settlers at the post, and when I inquired the cause of the commotion 1 was told that small-pox had been rn-j- injf for several weeks amonpr the Indians who thickly populated that sec- lion. J was taken to the pla.ce where the dead red-skins hat! been buried, and there were hundreds »of'iicwly- fornicd mounds, eaeli of which represented a victim of the scourge. "Small-pox had up to thai time been !\n unknown disease nmonp these Indians, nnd the outbreak was the result of one of the most terrible schemes of revenge I have ever seen recorded. In the sprinjr of 1SSS two young men of wealthy families, whose names I have now forgotten, went out from St. Louis to the plains for the purpose of spending a few months, the object of the trip being 1 for the benefit of one of the young men's health. They reached Council Grove safely and decided to remain there a short time. They decided to pet a taste of the sport of hunting buffalo, which at that time came within twenty or thirty miles of Council drove in large numbers. Accordingly they left Council Grove one morning early on a two 1 weeks' hunt. They were mounted on good horses, which soon attracted the covetous eyes of straggling bands of Indians whom they met. On the third day after the young men left Concil Grove they came upon a large herd of buffalo, and they had an exciting- chase. The invalid youn^ mnn killed one of the animals and had dismounted to view his prize when a big, strapping Indian rode out of a clump of cottonwood trees, and without warning shot the white man down nnd then proceeded to take his seal p. The com pan ion of the murdered man witnessed the horrible crime and thinking thut a similar fate awaited him if he tarried in that suction, put spurs to his horse and headed in the direction of Council Grove. He was closely pursued by the blood-thirsty Indian, who had exchanged his mount for that of the man he had just killed. After a hard and long ride the white man escaped and reached Comcil Grove in an exhausted condition, A party was at once organized to go out and bring in the remains of the murdered man, and it was led to the spot by the survivor. The body was found to be horribly mutilated, and it had been stripped of every particle of raiment. The. companion of the'murdered man vowed that he would have revenge upon the whole tribe of Indians for the foul deed which one of the members had committed, and he kept his vow. "He returned to St. Louis, and when he arrived in that city he learned that the hospital there contained a number of cases of smnll-pox. He made the acquiiiUiuec of one of tho attendants of tin, 1 iio-pital, and induced the latter to sell iiiv,i a number of blankets which hud been used to cover the small-;o-v patients. He then boxed thest blankets up securely and shipped them to Council Grove. He went out and personally distributed the infected blankets among the Indians gratis.and received much prnisefrom the Indians and people generally for his phi- lanthrophy. When the necessary time iiua elapsed after receiving the blankets there was -A general outbreak of smallpox among the Indians. The disease spread rapidly, and they died by the score. As soon as nn Indian would feel the fever which attends the disease coming on he would make a bee line for the Neosho river, into which he would plunge. He would die in a short time after getting out of the water, "The young man from St. Louis who brought out and distributed the blankets remained at Council Grove until he saw the outbreak of small-pox fairly started, and then returned to his home. The United States government set on foot an investigation as to the cause of i the outbreak, and it was soon discovJIr ered that it was caused from the blan-T kets which had been brought from St. | Louis. " A large reward was offered for the arrest of the young man who had started the terrible epidemic, but he left the country as soon as he found that he was wanted, and is said to have made his way to Canada. He never returned to St. Louis, so far as I know." —St Louis Globe-Democrat.
