GOOD PIGEON LOFT. FUn for Its Construction I'resented In Detail. A comfortable and inexpensive pigeon loft can be constructed on the followingplan: Procure six locust or cedar blocks, two feet high, and having inverted tin pans upon them to exclude rats, place -them in two rows, .three on a side, mak- *ag-the rows sixteen feet long and six meet apart, and upon this foundation place the building. The sills are 3x4- Inch scantling; the side sills sixteen feet long; the end sills six feet long. Place one end of the frame towards the north, :uid erect upon the sills fourteen studs of 2xS-inch scantling. Five of these studs stand upon each of the side sills, one in the center of the north end sill, and two on the south end sill for door posts.. On these studs, fasten 3x4-inch plates, and with 2x3-inch rafters, five feet long, to allow twelve-Inch projection of roof, we have the frame complete. The roof can be made of boards cut five feet long, and nailed perpendicularly, or it can be covered horizontally by planks sixteen feet long. The floor is laid the entire length of the loft, and the south end and the sides are inclosed with galvanized wire netting,' except next to the north end, •which is boarded up solidly from the floor to the ridge of the roof. ISfext to this end the sides are also boarded up sii feet on the east and west sides to •helter the nesting place's. These are built by shelves fastened to the PLANS FOR NEST-BOX A ContrlvsncB That :ww Prevent H«m» from Eating Their Eggs. '•_"• Mr. Luther Bobbins sends to.Farm and Fireside a plan of a nest-box which, though simple, is novel in some respects. Mr. Bobbins, in describing it, says: '.'My hens prefer it to. the open nests, and as the inside of the nest is dark (which the hens prefer), they are not liable to eat the eggs in the nests. "Fig. 1 shows the exterior of the Experience with Sllon. Seven years'.experience with silos at the Michigan Agricultural Station leads to the following conclusions, says the .Indiana,..Farmer:' The silo should be built of lumber,'and located as near "the feeding place as possible, and on the same level. A silo twenty-two feet deep, ten feet wide and fourteen feet long: will b* sufficient for six months' feeding of ten cows weighing i.obO pounds each, which will consume 600 pounds of ensilage-daily.."For the 'silo the corn should ndY be harvested until well matured.' A great deal of the feeding value has been lost in the past by cutting while, too green and succulent Silage corn should never be fed alone to obtain the best results, nor in too large proportion when combined with other fodder. Silage and clover hay .combined make a most excellent mixture for coarse fodder. These with bran, shorts, corn meal, etc., in proper .proportions, make the most economical food for young cattle and for making 1 milk and bp'ef. and •JDouMe-VeJJfceci Eggs. It is seldom that a double-yelked egg will hatch, though instances have been known,in which .such 'eggs -have produced chicks. When double-yelked eggs are found, it is to be regretted, as they invariably indicate that the hens are out of condition—too fat, A hen in good laying, condition .will never produce an eg£ other than of the normal size peculiar to her breed, and if fat she is entirely unfitted.for laying. If a fat hen is killed she will be found full of eggs, so to speak, but they will bo noticed to be of all sizes, and the poul- tryman will be amazed over the fact that she did not lay; but examination will show that obstructions of fat were the cause, and. the hen is then more' profitable dead than when alive.—Farm and Firesirl" nest-box, which is 4 feet and 5 inches Jong and 23 inches wide. It contains four nests, each nest being 1 foot square, making four feet, the extra 5 inches being for the ends and partitions. In Fig. 1 the door to the passage is shown at B. while A A designate hinges, the top being raised when desired to collect the eggs.. "Fig. 2 shows the plan of the floor. Kcoiiomicn.1 Hay Rack. B. M. Goodwin sends to the Orange Judd Farmer the following plan for constructing a rack for feeding loose hay without waste: The ends and sides IP you want the best results from your cows feed them all they can assimilate and digest, but remember it takes close watching to reach that point. ;; Vack of the loft, and divided into two ;J; .compartments, each three feet long; :•:•; "the shelves themselves- extending the T -whole width of the loft, or six feet.. ; The shelves are six in number* and one foot deep, thus forming twelve nesting• pens, and such a lo ft will accommodate V twelve pairs of birds, although a smaller number would be preferable. In the accompanying cut, one side of the awarding is partly left off to show more plainly the appearance of the shelves in the sheltered recess of the loft. The front of the pens are not nailed, but se• «ured by buttons to admit of their removal for the purpose of cleaning. In the foregoing plan for the construction of loft, with necessary dimen- ~"*k>ns given, we need only add that in *he southern gable a hinged shelf, 36x13 Inches, may form an exit for the birds, if full liberty is desired; and we will proceed to the consideration of the loft ;.. furniture. This shelf is hinged at the liottom, and is closed by a rope running over a pulley at the top of the aperture, which is just, the size of the shelf. '•-. Thus, when the rope is drawn, the shelf closes upward, and when the rope is relaxed, the shelf opens downward, and resting upon its supports, forms an •lighting board for the birds. For feed a hopper may be used, but it is preferable to feed by scattering the grain upon the floor of the cage twice daily, and never more than the pigeons will eat entirely at a meal. An, earthenware-dish .covered with.'.» •wooden board nailed to an inch strip, • which rests upon the edges of the.bowl, forms a convenient drinking, vessel. The birds can insert their heads under the edge of the board and drink without fouling the water. The bottom of the cage, or the aviary part of the loft, should be strewed with sand and fine gravel, and it will be very conducive to the health of the birds to supply them to-one corner of the aviary with a box of salt cat. This compound may be manufactured by mixing clay and old mortar together and wetting- the mixture with brine until it is about the consistency of mortar prepared for plastering. It .canJthen be., put 'into a box perforated with holes large enough for the insertion of a bird's beak, and here it will soon 'become hard, and dry. —P. S. Hunter, in Poultry Monthly. there being a walkway, 7 inches wide, the whole length, which may be open at one or .both ends, as preferred. "Fig. Sis a plan of the entrances to the nests and also of the partition between the walkway and the nests. The holes are ten inches in diameter, the bottoms of the holes being two inches above the floor of the nests. "The door, or entrance to the box, is twenty-four- inches high, but may be lower if desired; and the legs under FIS. 3. the box may be as short or long as preferred.. "The inside may be lined with tarred paper, or made in any manner suitable. Slats or wire-netting can be stretched around the legs, thus providing a place for sitters or for breaking up sitters. This nest can also "be made without legs; or it may be placed outside of the poultry-house, provided an opening be made in .the poultry-house to correspond with B, Fig. 1, the opening of the house andlthat of the box being brought together." MAXIMS FOR MILKERS. [ St. Louis Republic.] BE sure .and ke ep your finger-nails short, always. NEVER wet your fingers while milk ing, especially,with milk.' NEYEB drive. a cow nor a fattening steer faster than a slow walk. SELL your kicking cow to the butcher she has no value in the dairy. You have no use for a dbg on a dairy farm, except it be'a well-trained collie. A CATTLE chain or a strap with DAIRY SUGGESTIONS. [National Stockman.] TRY to have the cows calve in succession; if yon have a large herd then have two or three or more calve about tho same date. EXTREMES eitlier" way are not good lor the butter. In selling milk to consumers, stir it before dipping it out, so each customer will get his share of "richness." Ou cold, sunny days the cows like to • be out in tbe yard eating "roughness," •econd quality corn-fodder, weedy hay, •wheat or oat straw. It doesn't count, much as feed, but it helps and the cows will eat their night's ration just as usual. IN a cold stable much more feed is required tban in a warm one. It is cheaper to warm the cows with a tight •table than with extra feed. And a comfortable stable will be comfortable' for the milker. He will take more pains to get all the milk, and will not be cross to the" cows. CHANGE the feed often—if you can give better feed each time. But if the feed is good, no change is needed. Don't forget the salt, and let the cows judge as to the quantity they want That is, give them access to salt every day instead of putting a fixed amount in their' IF you have no wooden paddles to handle the butter with make some, and don't touch the butter with your hands again. It makes no difference even though you are a woman. Women make better butter than men because ' they can see or smell any thing that is ^ •wrong quicker. And they will take more'pains to-right it. Men say they "guess that will do;" women say: "That "won't do." But a woman always insists that her hands arc clean. snap is a better tie than the old-fashioned stanchion. ". "'.'•', MILE as rapidly as you can and as clean as yon can; if you do not your cow will dry up. BE gentle with your cov». Remember you are a man and they are brutes; be thou not a brute.. HAVE no conversation while milking, nor stop at a "what did you say?" from your fellow-milker. ..'.. IN cold weather 1 take -the chill, from the water you use in messing cows; they will like it-better. IN cold weather wash your hands in warm water before you milk; a cows teats are very, sensitive. REMEMBER that a cow is like a closet or cupboard; you can take nothing out unless you put something in. HANDLE your heifers every day and make .them, gentle; .it will save much trouble when they become fresh. GIVE your cows a teaspoonful of salt once a day in their mess of mill-feed; it will keep them in good health. CLEAN your stable before you milk. I know of no substance, that will take up bad odors sooner than milk. CLEAN your, cow with brush or cloth before you milk; perfect cleanliness is most essential to perfect dairying. NEVKB feed your cow while milking; one thing at a time. Make her pay attention to you and not to her feed. . A GOOD .strong milker ought to mflk ten cows in an hour, but he has not time'to carry the milk to the dairy. STRAIN your milk from a strainer pail into an independent strainer, and in this have besides a strainer cloth. IP you have more than one cow always-milk them''in the same order; a boss cow does, not like to "be slighted. H^inj' .all your milking apparatus scrupulously clean; milk being a fatty substance you may need pure soap in the cleaning;' use scalding hot water afterwards. • A MlLKEK.who.ean use only one hand at a: time, or who will millc with thumb, and. fin<rer,'never should be entrusted with a cow either in a large dairy or ia a private stable. should be made tight and a slat cover or lid fastened at the top by hinges ia such shape as to allow the slats to lie on the hay. Make the'cover small enough to pass down inside of the rack and on top of the liay as it is being eaten toward the bottom. Three or four inch strips will be found a good width for the slats and they may be madeanv distance apart, depending on the quality of hay. aq-e and kind of stock.
