In very old days the •olonists used to back their carts into tfco shallow head waters of these •(roams, at the time that the annual C n of these fish for spawning placed the sand WM due, and sit down and When the shad came the school would •jtmqiuBntly be several feet deep, a vast HrrJtfffllng-, floundering mass, hunting -.. llor fresh water sands, and the colonists wott Id loud their carts with them by Utte pitchfork fall, so plentiful were .The war of extermination against the fetd boffin first by d»inmln«- up the Madwaten of the rivers to afford water for manufactories. The (tote exercised proper diligence in lBlDr flshway* over thedwnt, to fc»* the flak oool'd climb over in search Strange to say, fishermen were allowed to draw seines directly below those dams whero the shad would collect in larg-o numbers and struggle for hours ia the instinctive effort to got beyond the dam, and, consequently, both flsh and inconceivable millions of shad roo were destroyed. This was especially trno at the ^ r ''-" t Greenville darn, and did more to hulp on tho groat war of extermination than anything- else. Then the factories were allowed to pollute tho streams and poison the rivers. This, with the building- of piers to aid navigation at the mouth of the Connecticut river, has so killed tho fishing in that stream that many of the seine hauls have been abandoned. The piers hinder the shad in discovering tho true mouth of the river. On the Thames river the same causes have operated In a similar manner, but the fishery has been effectually squelched there by the federal government In building dykes along the edge of tho canal at the upper end of the river to improve navigation the walls have been built directly through the oia setne hauls, so that for the Thames shad fisherman, his occupation, like Othello's, is gone.— N.

Simple Implement for Muklng » Good, Permanent Drain. < Immediately after the 'heavy spring rains many a farmer will sso whero ho ought to have opened ditches list fall lie will also cote the utter usolossness of tho little single furrow ditches opened by the plow. The ridjfo of earth thrown up on one sido prevents the water from entering 1 the furrow (Fig-. I). It is not only a miserably poor drain on level land, but it is also a ridge and a gully, which shatters machinery passing over it, The Brnsi- ble farmer makes hi.s shallow drains in the form shown in X-'ig. 2. A machine to do this is shown in Fig 1 . 3. This is only a simple, homemade implement, but its valuo for opening shallow drains can hardly be overestimated. This drain plow or ditcher is made of t',vo ouk planks twelve inches wide the farther sido, as shown in the sketch, runs straight with the pole, while this side sets at an anRlo with it. TIiu point is shod with iron, and tho top is covered with boards firmly nailed on. There is a brace across the center, under the boards, to stiffen the sides and make the implement stronger. The dotted line shows where it is PIQ. 1.—FAULTY SUIiFACE DKAI.V. placed. Tho driver stands on tho boards, am', by changing his position •can change the chanietnr of the drain he is m;ikiuf,'. ]Jy standing near the front he forces tho nose of the ditcher down into the soil and makes a narrow drain. When following a furrow opened by a plow he stands near the farther or straight side and holds it down to the bottom c£ the furrow, doing- the same as he returns. This makes a drain like th:it shown in Fig. a, und a harrow follows after, leveling the ridges raised. A skillful operator will soon learn where to throw his weight to make auy sort of a drain do- sired. The spring rains are not over when oats are sown, and it is advisable to open drains for possible floods that may drown out maoh of the crop. If they are opened with this implement there is no danger of shattering harvesting machinery in crossing them. If the soil is likely to wash badly along 1 such drains they should be opened wide, and not less than a foot deep, and heavily sown with grass seed, and th.en.jiot flowed any Wore../'It Js. far .-v- REMOVE THI WEEDS. Tk»7 Bob All Kinds of Crop* of Kmulsh- mut »nd Mobtura. It is now considered an indication of mismanagement when weeds are permitted to grow on a farm. Formerly the disgrace was In allowing the weeds to overrun the farm, but with the advantages of the many improved appliances for destroying weeds they should not be permitted to even get a start They appear before tho timo arrives for planting the regular crops, and frost, drought or excessive moisture do not affect their progress. Tho farmer preserves his weed seeds over tho winter by covering- them up in the fall, where they are secure from cold, apd brings them up to the warm surface in the spring. The oft-repeated Inquiry as to where the weeds como, from is easily answered. They are in the soil because thny are allowed to propagate themselveslate in the season ani scatter their seeds BO as to be plowed under. The only way to prevent this is to completely exterminate them. The annual expenditure for labor in keeping 1 down thu weeds on the farm is a large item, but there should really be no weeds. A large number are do- slroyeil by cultivation of cropu, and a persistent warfare is waged against them, but in most cases the work of d*- •truction is not thorough, as a sufficient number of weeds escape to reseed the land for the next year's crop. The repugnance of most Seiners to usipg the hoc, depending- on horse cultivation entirely, is responsible to a great extent for the presence of weeds, but even when the harrow an'd cultivator are used the worlr ia not as frequent as may be necessary. There aro a great many kinds o£ weeds, and they como up at different times. Work must be applied so as to do the most damage to the weeds at the least cost, and this means not only to begin early but often. The work is performed to the best advantage when the weeds are just coming through the ground, as a slight scratching of tho soil will then be more effective than tho cultivator or plow later in the season. As soon as the seeds germinate they should be destroyed. Every weed that grows robs the crop of nourishment and moistu re. During a period of drought weeds can bring to tho surface and evaporate as much moisture as other plants, being veritable pumps, which take moisture from the soil, and the larger they are permitted to become the greater the capacity of their roots to take away from the crop the necessary plant food.— ^Philadelphia Eecord. A QRCW8OMC DANCE. Thoniuds of UMM In Btnuboarc Bop Aboqt to KnUrc* Their Llv«n. Ever think oil the dancing 1 geeee mud the slow tortoise while eating that pata de foie gras.with so much relish? No. of course not, for it isn't everybody who knows about it. But there's more romance and adventure to the story of the pate de foie gras than one would ever dream of. Indeed, pate do foie gras saved a man's life once. That, in fact, was the first any one ever heard of it. lie was a gay old cavalier of Strasbourg. He had been caught in some peccadillo by the police of the mareclial—the mare- ch;il de Contades, a fine old French gentleman, who bore the cares of gov- crnmuat far more lig-htly than he did the cares of his stomach, for the table wonders of Strasbourg's governor were I lie talk of the laud. The culprit was so frowned upon by the mareclial that hia friends know lie was in dauber of los'iiifi- his head. As a last resort, they determined to reach the marechal's heart tlirouR-h his stomach. There was a famous chef—it was in the yu:ir 1780, and great chefs were not plentiful in Strausbourg—and through him they perfected their design. Jlis name was Close. He made a pie of fattened liver—it was the first pate de foie grits. When the raarechal de Contades sat uown to his dinner that day he was not long 1 in noticing: the new dish. He tasted of it, suspiciously at first. He smacked his lips. "Surely it's pood," he murmured. He tried another and larger morsel "Mon Dieu, it's delicious!" he cried. Half an hour's tete-a-tete with the new dish only sewed to strengthen his first impressions. "Who devised this?" he demanded. The servants to!d him how the great Chef Close had done itatthc suggestion of the prisoner, th£ gay cavalier who had been caught in the peccadillo. "Let the cavalior be released at once, then," commanded the marechal, "and brinfr rne some more of tliis pate de foio FIO. 2. — PROPERLY lIAPt SURFACE DRAIN. better to have a. f trip oi grass extending across a cultivated field than to have an impassable gully. If the land is sown to permanent meadow or pasture these drains should bo made at the time of such sowing. No variety of grass is benefited by having water cover it for a .week. Just before a field is planted to corn, it is a good idea to open these shallow drains along all the low places. I have seen the soil in prime condition and the weather all that could be desired until the corn was planted, and then a flood catne and acres of tho corn rotted just for the lack of a few shallow, open ditches to carry off the watflr quickly. It pays to be prepared at all times for floods. Where the water has a chance to flow off freely tho soil is fit to work a weefc to ten days sooner than whore it is compelled to slowly flow over level ground. In fact, a shallow open ditch is sometimes the difference between a good crop and none at all. In an experience extending over twen- WATER TANK STRAINER.

The half inch supply pipe enters near the bottom of the tank, and is kept from freezing \>y being- continually immersed, li ut the one-inch overflow pipe, which jroes out about three inches from the top of tho tank, used to get clogffed with ice in tha wint cr and dirt in the summer, causing- much annoy- ! anee. To obviate this, I hit upon the following device, which has ttood the test of years: A holo three inches square (a round one of this diameter would do as well) was sawed in a six-by-six piece of inch FIG. 8,— SUHFAOSi DttAIN PLOW. ty-five yews, I have not seen more than three or four Benson* when the opening of surface drains was labor lost. But I hare many a time seen acres and acres of wheat, oats and corn flooded and drowned out just for the lack of a few such drains. It pays to open them every time a crop in planted, whether It be winter wheat, grass or corn. And with the implement shown in the sketch, and a smoothing harrow, it can be done quickly. To make a (food, permanent drain, plow two furrows four' feet apart, throwing the soil outward. Follow with the ditcher, running the DOS* or prow along the bottom of tha furrows. Continue to plow and scrap* until the center is reached. Then if any part of the drain needs to be deeper, plow as before, only nearer the center of the drain, and scrape out with the ditcher. Run along tho outer edge of the ridges thrown up with both plow and ditcher, and continue until the edges of the ditch ar« reached. This will move all the loose soil farther aw»y from tho ditch, 'and also level it down more. Finish leveling with a smoothing board or plank clod crusher.

This was nailed on the inside of tho tank, with its centre over the opening of the overflow pipe. Over the hole in tho block was nailed a flve-by-nvo piece of galvanized wire netting, of quarter-inch mesh. Now, any ice that may form is kept an inch away from the mouth of the overflow, for the water nover freezes inside the wire netting. It always has a free passage through the meshes of the wire below the Ice, and up between the wire and the side, of the tank to the outlet This device is so simple, and works so perfectly, that the writer confidently recommends its adoption wherever there is difficulty with the choking up of tank overflows with either ice or dirt. The size and shape oi the block may be modified to suit the tank and the water supply.—B. N. Milieu, in Country Gentleman. FARM PHILOSOPHY. THE short road to wealth is seldom safe to travel.

Timothy, being heavyrtakes &bo«t 500 cubic feet for the ton, mixed hay about 60'J feet, clover 700 to 750 feet, and red top hay as much as 800 feet To get the cubic feet in a round stack 1 , take one-third of the girth, which will give the diameter, square this—that is multiply the figures by themselves—take three-quarters of the product, and multiply this by the average height, all In feet Then divide by the weight of • ton as given. ThU mode of estimating is for old hay, pat up lost Chef Close came with it, and tho marcchal m;idc him the royal chef to the ruler of Strasbourg-. Close lived in honor till the governor died. The next g-overnor was an old soldier. Close felt called upon to offer his services, too, but the veteran only turned up his little battle-scarred nose at the famous pate do foie trras, and Close was so wroug-ht up over it that he left. He started a factory to make the pates. It was then that the fame of the pate de foie grras was spread all over the world. The nobility and g-entry made haste to g-et the delicious pates that had been so jealously guarded by the old marc- chal of Contades, and even in England the skill of Close was duly appreciated and Jris dainty dish was duly welcomed us "Strasbourg- pie." But alas for Close! One day a chef | from the south of France appeared in I Strasbourg. In .some way he—this j chef, Doyen—got the secret of Close'* I concoction. He conceived the audacious and ingenious idea of adding- to the Close pate a paste of the truffles of Perigord. That painted the lllyl Close was outdone, and the nobles and g-en- try gathered about the new shrine and Doyen flourished, while Close was driven to an early grave, cursing the chef who had stolen hissecret and was reaping fhe rewards of his genius. The demand for the pate ol Doyen became enormous. The chief ingredient, the livers of geese, became scarce. Whttt was to be done? Doyen's genius came to the rescue and he decided that it was easier to Increase the size of the liver of each goose than it was to in- creftse the number of geese. Again his genius stood him in good stead, when he began to figure upon the means. He ftr&t nut a goose into an isolated cage, so narrow that it could not move in its prison. Three times each day he fed the goose a meal paste that 1 had to be forced down its throat On the twenty- second day he added a few drops of poppy oil to the meal. He continued this diet till the fortieth day. Then the goose had become so fat that it couldn't breathe. After that, it took but a moment to wring- its neck Doyen cut the goose open and was delighted to see that its liver had increased enormously in size, and that it had acauired a pulpy, oleaginous consistency nicely suited to his purpose. Doyen's successors dovised some finer methods of fattening- and enlarging livers. They found that the size was increased if tho narrow cage where the goose was Imprisoned had a metal floor, under which a slow fire was constantly burning. The floors got hot and the poor geese could not stand still long-, because it burnt their feet So they had to keep shifting from one foot to the other hopping 1 up and down in a sort of ludicrous agony with a waltz step. It was a grewsomo dance of death to any one who saw it in that way, but the livers kept enlarging' all the time, and that was all the merchants wanted. One of the great sights of Strasbourg to-day ia the making of pate de fol« gras. No society for the prevention of • cruelty to animals dares interfere with it, for it is the town's principal industry. It is said that there are forty thousand geese dancing up and down all the time with that waltz step of death in the cages of Strasbourg, but the pate de foie gras is BO good that people over here never think of the death dance whsn they are eating it It is doubtful if they know about It, though, unless they have visited old Strasbourg.— N.
