Separators arc used to prevent the bees from building ono section into another, BO that when they are packed in cases for market honey will not protrude from ono side of the section to bo bruised or mashed. Wood separators ore preferred to tin where they can be used loose, because cheaper. Also the bees can use them as ladders to climb on. They con grip them, as they caunot do with tin, •which is colder mid chills their feet. WIRED FRAMES. Where separators have to be fastened to section holders and wide frames, tin is preferred, because more durable. Where wood separators are used loose, they can be used new every year cheaper than to clean up old ones. Old tin separators can bo easily cleaned by boiling in weak lye. Sawed separators are nice and do not curl and will answer in place of tin, where they have to be nailed. Section honey that is built between separators is a joy to all who get it, as the sections are all so perfect and of the same size, says The Prairie Farmer, authority also for the following: We only use a starter of foundation in the sections of about ono inch in width. When honeycomb is built very rapidly, the comb is so thin and tender as to bo imperceptible. Where comb foundation is used that is very heavy, it destroys the delicate flavor of white clover, imparting a beeswax taste. There are several foundation fasteners sold by supply dealers, but wo f asten in starters in sections in this way. We keep a tin basin of WHX and*a coal oil stove, or rather lamp, regulating the heat to keep it melted at the proper temperature, and dip the starter into it, quickly placing it in the middle of the section. With a little practice a person becomes an adept , at it. When a case is filled with sections, with starters in them, they are put upon USEFUL HONEY BOAKDS. 'the hives. Wo use a break joint honey board between the brood chamber and sections, and we are not troubled with the queen's laying in the sections. There are queen excluding honey boards of zinc / and of wood and zinc, which are used for the same purpose. These honey boards ore also vory useful ill keeping the queen' from laying in combs which are to bo extracted. No fault can be found with a producer using foundation in the brood chamber, and if the worker size only is used all the bees reared will be workers. When no drones are reared, swarming is discouraged, and much more surplus honey will bo secured. The brood frames are strengthened with fine wire and the foundation imbedded in it. \Vo llurrow the Wlicnt? All Ohio correspondent of The Rural Now Yorker answers an over recurring query as follows: I never harrowed wheat, and it is not practiced hero. Our soil is black loum, with somo sand, If I were to do anything of that kind, I would say do it the first time the ground is dry enough after the middle of April and run a spike toothed harrow straight with the drill rows. I would prefer to sow my clover after the harrow. I cannot BOO why the man wants to harrow bis wheat if the noil is sandy. I think a harrow would nearly ruin my wheat, as it covers the ground like a carpet. I think farmers, ought to do their harrowing and follow the harrow with a good rolla* in the fall before seeding. If they do this and put the land in proper tilth, with plenty of manure or fertilizer, their wheat will look Wfll enough in the spring without tiny harrowing. ' Tliu \\Vbtcrii Corn limit Worm.

Finn Now For tlic Short ngo Snro to Come 111 July nnd August. Iu all probability next August theite will be serious complaints from all over tho western country of short pastures. Tho farmers as yet have 110 means of controlling tho rainfall. There is, however, a method by which short pastures in August may bo avoided, or if they do occur the damage resulting therefrom may be prevented—viz, by planning for a substitute pasture during the season when short pastures may be expected. Tho Iowa Homestead says: A largo proportion of the evils of short pasturage may be avoided simply by keeping a reserve of grass on hand. From the middle of May to the middle of Juno pastures are exceedingly luxuriant iu all parts of the west. The prairie grass is then at its best and growing rapidly. Tho clover and timothy fields are simply glorious. Blue grass is then at its best, and the farmer concludes that ho must have more stock in order to avoid this tremendous waste of pasture. It is certain that tho man who keeps his pastures eaten down closely in May and June will have grief iu August and September. Not only will his stock bo short of pasture, but the pastures themselves will be seriously injured—eaten out so that the capacity of tho pastures for producing forage the next year will be greatly diminished. Therefore one way, applicable in all sections of the country, of avoiding this shortage of pasture in August and September is to keep a reserve of grass and keep fewer live stock and better on each 40 acres. There is, however, a necessity, becoming greater every year, of having something to supplement pastures in a dry time. The western man is turning to dairying more and more every year, and will, we think, for many years to come, and the man who allows the yield of rnilk to shrink during July and August through short pasturage is a loser in three ways instead of two. Ho loses from tho damage of his pastures, from the shrinkage of tho milk of his cows and tho shrinkage in tho capacity of the cows for tho rest of the season, oven after the rains have come. The provision that should be made will differ in different sections of the country. In tho more pronounced drier sections many farmers aro adopting tho summer ,silo, storing up the superabundance in tho form of ensilage and feeding it out when the pastures are short. In fact, many of them claim that the time will come when dairy cattle will be fed out of the silo the year round. In sections where the silo has not yet been introduced many farmers are providing a substitute for short pastures in August by planting early varieties of corn as early in the season as it will germinate, and thus secure a supply of foliage for August and September. Others again find a crop of peas and oats sown late a desirable substitute. Mr. A. Sampson of McCook, Nob., scuds a 'suggestion for pastures in drier sections of tho country. He suggests sowing one-fourth bushel of sorghum seed, a half bushel of popcorn and a half bushel of millet per acre, sowing this about the 20th of May on fresh plowed laud. Ho says that ho has grown three and a half tons of this mixed crop to the acre and regards it as the best feed for cows that he ever fed. OUTLOOK IN CONGRESS. Several Senators Anxious to Make Tariff Speeches. MILLS ANNODNOED FOR TUESDAY, Sebrlght Bantam*. The Golden and Silver Sebright bantams deservedly hold a high rank in the esteem of fowl fanciers. No breed among the beautiful pygmies excel this variety in beauty of penciling, and none are prettier pets than are these. Tho Silver Laced bantams are not so generally or SILVER 6EBKIOHT BANTAMS. BO successfully bred as aro tho Golden. When a good strain is established, in a judicious fancier's hands tho product is decidedly satisfactory, however, and they aro always salable at good prices if reproduced clean and well marked, says Tho Poultry World, which advises as follows: Bantam chicks should bo hatched in tho fall or late summer. Tho object in thus delaying tho hatching of bantams — of any variety — is to get the chicks out toward approaching cold weather. They aro very hardy if well mancgcd, but the colder season dwurfu tint youifKling«, and us small proportions are (lie moist desirable for these birds tho ICKH weight!) the bettor. This plan of deiVrrinx tho setting until August or September rather than to have them hatched in the spring is an excellent way i(> keop tho size down.

Cleveland Cheerfully Contributes. WASHINGTON, April 23.— The prospect is that the tariff debate in the senate will continue this week, much on the same lines as observed since the agreement for the regulation of hours of debate was entered into, notwithstanding the arrangement that the reading of J;ho bill by paragraphs shall be begun on Wednesday at 1 o'clock. The Republican senators are counting upon the continuance of this program for at least another week, and expect to go ou with their general speeches just as they have been doing for the past three weeks. "General debate," said Senator Aldrich, in 'discussing the outlook, "will conclude Tuesday at 5 o'clock and will be resumed Wednesday at 1 o'clock." Senator Aldrich is among those who have not yet spoken upon the general features of the. bill and he will not now have time to get in before the reading of the bill is begun. He will possibly speak on Wednesday or Thursday, though probably not until the beginning of next week. Besides replying to Senator Mills he will devote himself especially to the revenue features of the pending bill. Will Contest Every Inch of Ground. The speeches announced for this week are those of Mills, PaJmer and Higgins on Tuesday, and Cullom on Thursday or Friday. Other speeches, among the one by Senator Lindsay, may be made on any of these days, and if no one else sbpuld be prepared to proceed at any time Senator Quay will continue the speech of which he has already delivered several installments. Senator Dolph may also at any time conclude his unfinished speech. Senator Mills is expected to reply in a general way for the members of the finance committee to the attacks which have been made upon the bill, and his speech will be about three hours in length. Senator Higgins will discuss the Hawaiian question, basing his speech upon the provision contained in the first report of the senate bill for the nullifica- of the reciprocity with the islands, and will advocate their annexation to the United States. Nine Republican sena: tors will make manifest their disposition I to contest every inch of ground at the I very beginning of the discussion of the | paragraphs by attempting to have the provision of the first paragraph providing that the new tariff shall go into effect on the 30th of June changed, • Time of Sessions May He Lengthened. Senator Harris, upon being asked, said that no agreement had been readied for i the continuance of the present agreement as to hours for debate, and he was not ! prepared to say what would be done in that respect when that stage of the con- eideration of the bill should be reached. "It will depend upon circumstances," he Baid, "whether wo shall go on as at present. We possibly may during the week, but I should say not longer. We have already had the bill under consideration for three weeks, and its opponents have consumed the greater part of the time. They certainly should have opportunity to exhaust their long speeches, and if a disposition should be shown to continue to make them, I shall ask for an extension of the daily time for debate. I think we shall begin by meeting earlier, and if that change does not suffice to exact sufficient progress, we shall gradually extend tho hours into the night, and then will begin a contest which must either axhaust the senators or exhaust the debate, and result in final action upon the bill." Program In the Houtc, Appropriation bills will continue to occupy the attention of the house during this week. On Tuesday the diplomatic and consular bill will probably be finished, and on Wednesday the postoffico appropriation bill, tho consideration of which was Interrupted by tho departure of Chairman Henderson of the postoffice committee as one of the committee to attend tho funeral of the late Senator Vance, will be resumed. Tho only item in this bill undisposed of is that providing a subsidy for tho fast southern mail. A strong fight is being made to cut off this appropriation, but the general impression seems to be that the adversaries, of tills appropriation will not bo able to defeat it, us it has earnest champions not only in the south, but in the north and west. After the postolnco bill is completed tho army bill will be taken up, and should it bo completed, tho river and harbor bill will follow. The only possibility of varying tho monotony of tills program is tho precipitation of a debate on some resolution in connection with the coming of Coxuy's army of commonweal. The Populist* in tho house, as in tho senate, huvo coino to tho front us advocates of fair play for the industrials, and they may spring Borne resolution bearing on tho subject which would throw it open for dis- cuuBion, QROVER CHEERFULLY CONTRIBUTES. rtui I'ruKlUoni Wrlt«« • Jailer of Quod Clitiur to lluu, Clmuuovy f, Illitok.
