Dvoaii'iteyonlj I'retty Landscape Effect Produced at a Smnll Jirpccse. A correspondent of American Gardening tells that journal how "a pretty effect was produced in the wav of landscape g-ardening- at small expense:" In laying ont our crormds there was quite a large quantity of earth taken from the walks, these being filled with, nibble and gravel. As the yard was almost lev;-! it seemed quite desirable to have a : ound, so all the rubbish around the plai.- -.vas carted to the spot selected, an ! t.hen the earth dumped on this, makii- : the main mound (a) as shown in Pig. L Then another smaller I _ as yon will observe, is divided into six pens, each 15x12, accommodations for sixty fowls. One hundred fowls could "be crowded into the same space, but I do not advocate crowding. Uather keep fewer birds and be sure they are comfortable, and doing good service, FIG. 1. mound (b) was made about fifteen feet from the larger one, and connected with it by a rustic bridge (c). Fig. 2 shows the general structure of this bridge. The wood of the osage, which is very rustic in appearance, and wild grapevines were used for everything but the stringers and the upright posts, which are of white oak. On one side of the smaller mound, at d, three stone steps were laid, which lead from one oi the paths to the mound. From these steps is a little path to the bridge, after crossing 1 which the path continues about ten feet, arid then divides, A flight of stone steps (e), protected on one side by a rustic railing, leads to a miniature vale-(f). This is entirely inclosed by the mound except where there is a small archway (g) under the division of the path (h). The little archway or FIG. 2. which they will do if not crowded. The entrance to the building gives a hallway or small room between the pens, 10x20 feet, with doors on either side leading into each pen. Feed bins I have shown at the entrance end of the room where corn, oats, wheat and other grain may be put. A tool cupboard and work bench and stove also have space in this room, making it a handy place for the farmer to look after the hens. Pens near the stove may be used for sick fowls when any are ailing. Each pen has dust boxes, roosts (R), feeding square (F) conveniences as well as necessities in any well-kept hen-hcuse. The building is 40 feet long, 20 feet wide, 10 feet high in the hen-house, S feet to the cone of the roof of the pigeon room, making it IS feet from the ground. (E) is the entrance to each of the runs; these are on each side of the building. It matters not whether the ground be level or hilly, this building- will suit any location. The floor I always make of boards; never rest it on the ground, preferring to put earth or sand, over the boards and renew it once a week or as often as it is necessary. The pigeon coop I show plan of in Fig. S. A flight of stairs (S) from the muaay pen wrca no snelter ana in cold weather half of this gain would hardly be secured, while under very favorable conditions even a better gain than this may be realized. This, however, is usually taken as the average, and it is often the case that upon this basis feeding corn exclusively cannot be made profitable. There csji also be used to good advantage in feeding the unmarketable wet crops such as turnips, carrots or potatoes. By boiling and mashing any of these and mixing mill feed and oil meal a good fattening ration can be made up that will be cheap as well as wholesome, and on many farms there is more or less small lots of this kind that may be used to a groat advantage in this way, and at the same time lessen the amount of grain required to fatten.—X. J. Shepherd, in Prairie Farmer. 1 — — — T — | \ r- \ •w Mi | F | 5 r | w! i Mil, opening- is crossed by a small rustic span. At i is a grotto made of stone, •vrith a stone arch opening- onto it. This is covered with earth on top, and is partly under the summer house (j). A rustic seat in the grotto affords a cool retreat on a hot day. Around the sides of the mound, within the vale, stones are inserted, and here ferns, ivilcl vines, maurandia, tlnin"berg-ia, violets and pansies grow luxuriantly, never requiring any ivater, as the stones cause the earth to keep moist all the time. The path (h) gradually ascends until it reaches k, when it gradually declines again to 1, where a flig-ht of stone steps leads up to a rustic arbor. The m's in Fig. 1 indicacte rock work, where ferns, vines, etc., are planted. Dnder the approaches to the. bridge ferns are also planted. -Where there is nostone work the mound is sodded, or may be sown should sodding be an expense, and here and there a few evergreens are set out. The dimensions OI the mound are as follows: Extreme length of back about forty feet, width of wider mound about twenty-five feet. At the briclgo the stringers are two feet six inches above the ground level. Large old apple trees furnish an abundance of shade about the mound. The whole work serves as part of the background to the yard, and is a very charming feature of the scene. HOUSE FOR POULTRY. It Is of PlcasLne Design and Con Bo Built for a Small Sntn. There should be as much neatness and taste displayed in all the buildings which a farmer erects on his farm as possible, and it does not always mean additional expense to do so. It can be kept within a limit when you need to look at the item of expense first before you act* Very often this point is carried too far and with more or less ignorance on. the part of the farmer as to what he must expend. Economy in building can be overdone and the point sought entirely overreached. Instead of its being less, the poor material put into the building in a few years falls to pieces and repairing is the only way to keep the flimsy structure from failing apart. You perhaps have had just such an experience. : One experience FIG. 3. feed room leads up to a trap door on a pulley in the floor, which falls down after yon enter the room. This room slants with the slanting of the roof, having no boarding- to cover up the rough framework, and it is really unnecessary. The loft is supplied with one window 0V) in the front and an aviary with a glass window above the entrance where the pigeons go in r-.nd out. This is ample light. Pigeons prefer dark nests. I have therefore shown the nests along the side of tha room, marked Is. This I cover with K, lid on hinges, and when I want to look at or fix them the lid is thrown back. An entrance by means of a stepping board affords them easy access to each nesting box. The roosts (K) are at the end of the room and each roost is flat, not round. -Pigeons, my reader, do not like round support; a flat perch or board suits them best; they are flatfooted birds. The feeding square (P) is a bos-shaped inclosure where the feed is thrown to them, unless a hopper is used for this purpose. Some prefer the hopper. It is convenient—yes, most too convenient at times when the mice and rats come, as they sometimes do, hence I • usually throw the grain to them twice a day, giving them enough, perhaps a little more than they will eat up clean, to be sure they do not sufcer any hunger between times. —Ohio Farmer. TO CURE QUARTER-CRACK. Description and U lustration of tho Method of Treatment. Quarter-crack in a horse's hoof can be cured. Have the blacksmith, cut a groove in the hoof along the line where the hoof and hair join at the coronet, and from either end of that groove cut another, these two meeting one another at a point on a line of the crack one and one-half inches or thereabouts from the lower edge of the first groove. So cut the grooves should inclose an equilateral triangle with the upner part of the quarter-crack extending through its middle. The grooves, especially the top one, should be cut almost through the hoof, tho idea being to entirely separate the cracked part of the hoof from the coronet so that as the new hoof grows down the crack shall not extend upward, and into the new- formed hoof. Where the hoof rests on the shoe the horn should be cut away so as to prevent it bearing on the shoe for about one inch on cither side of the crack. The hoof prepared in this way the crack should be drawn together and You Needn't Look immediately for the damage that dangerous wasliing compounds do. It's there, and it's going on all the time, but you won't see its effects;, probably, for several months. It wouldn't do, you know, to have them too dangerous. The best way is to take no risk.

In securing- and maintaining- fj-ood health, pure water is as needful as wholesome food. Many of the most virulent diseases follow the use of drinking- water contaminated by the drainag-n from cesspools. A well or spring-, that for generations past may have afforded an abundance of the purest water, is easily rendered unlit i'or culinary or drinking purooses by such impurities. In these cases the owner of the property is unwittingly to bin me. Hence, if the privy vault is so located that the drainage from it is liable to find its way into the well or other source of water supply, it should be moved further away, or the vault filled up with fresh lime and earth and changed to a dry earth closet. In fact, with the dry earth system, no danger need be apprehended from contaminating the water or atmosphere.—American Agriculturist. held by meaEs of nails driven across it and clinched, as shown in cut. Veterinarians sometimes asc clamps in place of nails for holding the crack; bat unless the veterinarian can see the horse frequently the nails are preferable, as the clamps arc liable to become loosened and so need tightening, a work for which a special tool is needed. The horse should be shod with a a bar shoe unless there are special indications to the contrary, in which case the shoe should meet requirements. The horse may be driven during treatment. The time required for growing a new hoof from coronet to shoe varies from nine to twelve months; the ordinary rata of growth of the hoof being about a quarter of an inch per mouth. The growth may be hastened somewhat by rubbing the region of the coronet with a mild stimulating liniment like the following: Camphorated soap liniment, seven ounces; water of ammonia, one ounce. Spanish fly blisters are. used for the same purpose.—Farm and Home. AGRICULTURAL NOTES. RATIONS FOR PIGS. Oil Meal and 31111 Feed Cua Be Used to Excellent Advantage. Both for growing pigs and in fattening hogs for market bran, shjpstufrs and oil raeal can, in a majority o£ cases, be used to good advantage. Bran or shipstuffs made into a S!OD with sweet skim milk is one of the best materials that can be used to secure good development of bone and muscfe with growing pigs, and at this time especially when it is desirable to push the growth they can be fed all that they will eat np clean. With fattening hogs the oil meal should be added. It will help supply or make np a variety, and will give better results thati to depend upon corn alone. It always seemed to me that the hogs kept healthier and thriftier when fed a good feed night and morning of this with their corn. My plan of feeding was to make into a slop, using the milk and waste from the kitchen, and if tflis was not sufficient adding water to secnris the desired quantity. Let stand twelve iours in a covered barrel .tbefore feeding. Give this slop all they will drink before feeding the corn. This will in many cases reduce the cost, especially -when corn is rather high as. compared with pork- The. usual plan. is to count that one bushel of sound corn fed to a thrifty pig- will make tea pounds of gain on a thrifty hog. But conditions will change this, as fed in a i Xo FAF.3IEH can afford to buy manure until he has first made use of every pound produced at home. LOOK sharply to see that no sour food is given to the chicks, unless it be milk. Meal mixed with water or milk soon sours and is not wholesome food for chickens. They may live on such treatment, but they cannot thrive, and this rapid growth is what^pays. JLvrcKE animals are best for breeding purposes. Many herds or flocks have deteriorated because of the annual selection of young and immature animals for breeding. An animal that is not fully matured is lacking in vigor and its offspring will inherit many of its defects. THE copper solutions if taken in time will keep in check the anthracnose of the raspberry. They will not prevent the development of the disease in new canes in diseased plants. If the disease becomes troublesome a now plantation should be made, using plants free from contagion. KEVEK be deceived and feed your hens because they run after you every time you appear, as it is due to education .you have given them, being only a habit. Make them work. An idle, lazy hen will not lay eggs. When you notice a hen scratching and foraging vou will find an egg in her nest. AN exchange says: "A man of genius may Snd a profit in sheep, no matter what the competition may be. The way to compete is to compete so the other fellow is not in your way. Sell what he can't raise-—at least does not—and sell when he has nothing to sell This is business, not theory." IF there are any ewes in the flock that are too old to be of service the best time to sell them is i£ early fall, when they will be in as good condition as they will reach. When aged the ewes require more grain in the winter to make them fat than they are worth. Keep the grain for the use of more profitable and younger stock. . The Glasgow Herald makes 'tie graceful acknowledgment a; the head of ita column of humor' that ••folly one-half the humorous sayings ive hear come from America, and of the other half fully 50 per cent, should be accredited to that cocntry." A Clandestine Industry, lit Thl» Time of tho Year, of the Chlucoteajrucrs. When you sec two or three men pulling out in small boats from Chincotaguo in the summer season, armed with stout sticks, large bags, and small nets, you may guess that they are going after terrapin. The native term to describe the sport or business sounds much like "turpentine," though it is more nearly represented by the spelling "tarp'nin." Cautious persons use one or another euphonism instead of plain tarp'nin, because the laws of Virginia forbid the taking of terrapin at this season of the year, and although restrictive laws sit lightly upon Chmeoteague, there is always the possibility of prosecution. The skillful terrapin catcher knows where to expect his game by the appearance of the marsh which the creatures inhabit. Lying off Chineoteague at varying distances are narrow ribbons of vivid green marsh, some edged with oyster beds, where at low tide thousands of oysters are in full view, and all swarming in season with various kinds of salt water fowl. Just at this season you hear the always inevitable marsh hen calling from the grass of this clamp strip. Yellowlegs, curlews, and a half a dozen kinds of ducks are plentiful upon the marshes at one or another time of year, and the eggs of water fowl are ' gathered here by the hundred. Chincoteaguers call these marshes the meadows, perhaps because their luxurious growth of salt grass give them the appearance of rich pastures. When the island pastures are parched the native ponies sometimes swim over to the tempting greenery of the meadows, a temerity that the little horses may come later to repent, since a high tide might make the meadows an unpleasant place of residence. It is upon the meadows that most of the terrapins arc caught. Students of terrapin nature say that the young terrapin, as soon as hatched, takes to the mud and there lies buried for a year. At the end of that time the young terrapin comes out to take up the duties of active life and encounter the perils of a table delica'cy. The terrapin is the water lily of tlie animal kingdom, a delicious product of slimy ooze. Opportunities for studying the habits of the diamond back are not of the best even here where his kind is abundant. When freshly caught terrapins are to be kept a season it is usual to dig a hole, fill it with water, and then surround the hole and a small area of dry^land with a tight fence. It is found that the captive terrapin has an excel lent appetite, and at the approach of an attendant with food the creatures come from their hiding place in the mud and thrust greedy noses above the surface of 'the water. One resident of Chincoteagxie has chosen an odd way to study the terrapin. He placed a tiny terrapin the size of two thumb nails in a well some time ago, and is determined to keep him there so long as he continues to grow: There arc many ways of cooking terrapin here in the home of the creature, but none perhaps better than those practiced by the gourmets of Philadelphia. Baltimore and New York. A favorite; method is to put the live and * squirming terrapin into the oven and there to let him bake safely, shut in so that the sight of live tortures may not vex the conscience of the tender- hearted cook. When done the terrapin thus treated is served upon a plate. He for whom the delicacy is intended lifts the shell and seasons the savory mess according to his own taste.— Philadelphia Press.
