"UW \ «yt ABOUT LIQUID MANURE. It la Quickly Available find Stimulating. How to Save It nncl line It, A word to farmers who have put up cement cisterns for liquid manure. If the cisterns held what ran into them, you have done a good thing. The liquids are the most valuable purt of the excrements. They contain the only actually digested part of the food. This manure is quickly available. It is a stimulant. Some experiments conducted in Don- mark showed that in one year a cow consumed food containing 194 pounds of nitrogen. Of this 45 1-5 pounds went off in the milk, and the urine contained 78% pounds. Think what a saving it means when all that nitrogen is held in a cistern. Consider not only the amount, but the fact that it is the most available form of this valuable substance. The,best place for this urine is on grass or grain. Put it on early for the benefit of the young plants. If you have a market garden, it is fine for forcing plants like radishes, lettuce, etc. Re- PROPER HOUSING FOR CHICKS. Points to Be Observed In the Construction of Coops For Newly Hatched Broods. The proper housing for young chicks has much to do with their future. A greater loss is sustained with the chicks for the first week than ot any other period.

WASHINGTON, May S.—Notwithstanding the truce agreed upon between the Democratic and Republican ssnators, Miereby it wa§ arranged that hostilities on the tariff should cease until next Tuesday, there has not been a day where there vvaa bolder talk and stronger protestations on the respective sides of the While tho Re- LIQUID MANURE SPRINKLER. member that urine ia like nitrate of soda .—a starter or one sided manure. It will do all that nitrate of soda can do. If you want a complete manure in solution, throw dissolved boneblack and muriate of potash, into the cistern, advises Rural New Yorker. The authority quoted, with a view to assisting in getting this manure on the ground, gives an illustrated description of a homemade sprinkler. It consists of a large cask holding perhaps 150 to 200 gallons,'mounted on wheels. One of the supporting side pieces is cut away in the sketch to show the connection. The cask contains an opening at the top, into which the liquid is pumped. In the bottom at the front end is inserted a pipe leading to the sprinkler. This passes through the boxlike affair shown, which contains a valve opened and closed by mean's of a wrench used on the nut shown on top. This regulates the flow of liquid or cuts it off entirely. '! The sprinkler itself consists of a large sized iron pipe, perforated with a row of holes on the front and back sides, tint not on the bottom. The ends are plugged. Some boards are nailed across the supporting timbers, and on those a Beat was fastened for the driver. These •were removed to show the manner of construction. This sprinkler and frame may be made separable from the wagon, so that no additional wagon is needed. A Scheme to Enhance the Value of Wheat. A scheme is under way in Kansas to enhance the present values in wheat. Each farmer having winter wheat sown trill plow up 25 per cent of the growing crop and put into corn or such other farm products as may yield a fair return for his investment. Field and Farm, which calls attention to the foregoing, says: By this method it is suggested that the reduced average will BO eliminate tho crop as to make more. than a corresponding advance in prices. It is tho intention of the originators of this plan to make it extend all over tho wheat producing states in the Union. In the northwest the idea is to reduce tho acreage to bo planted in spring wheat and to promise liberal compensation to tho farmers of that section for the unemployed land made so by their co-operation in the proposed scheme. Tho promoters of this measure are largo producers of wheat and in a financial position to carry out the policy outlined. The subject has been under secret discussion for some time and is now brought out in its Coll maturity, all contingencies being provided for and all details arranged tc take effect before too late to plant corn. A .mooting was held at Topeka to complete arrangements. ; VARIOUS KINDS OP COOPS. er for early maturing and healthy chicks. There is everything in keeping tho chicks warm for the first two weeks. When hatched, their temperature is 100 degrees, and this should be imitated as far as possible. When the hen and chicks are allowed to run at large in the early spring, the latter become chilled, and bad results follow. Field and Farm says: In the construction of the coop, dryness and warmth should be the first consideration, the roof to be water tight, and the floor of the coop raised from the ground. Figs. 1 and 2 are excellent designs of coops for young chickens, and they should be made large and roomy. A dry and well drained place should be selected for these coops, to avoid dampness and chill. It is advisable to keep them under a shed, to protect them from the driving rains of early spring. Chicks should be confined until the sun is well up and the chill of early morning is over. Keep everything clean and change the location of coops frequently. Never allow filth to accumulate on the floor, as it breeds vermin and disease to the youngsters. Dust insect powder on the hen and brood and in the cracks and crevices to prevent lice. Perhaps it is a better plan in building coops to have the runs attached, as shown in Figs. 4, 6 and 6. There are many advantages in such coops. By having the hen and chicks confined in them there is less liability of the chicks becoming chilled than when, they are on a range. The hen is in easy access, and when they become cold they can find warmth near her. In the runs the COOPS WITH RUNS. chicks are also free from molestation of larger fowls, and they have a chance to grow more rapidly under these conditions. A coop that can be mode by any one with little trouble is the barrel coop, as shown in Fig. 3. Take an old barrel and tack on every hoop on each side of a seam between the staves with one inch wrought nails. After clinching the nails saw the hoop < off on the seam; then spread tho barrel open, as shown in out, by cutting a board about 20 inches long for the back of the coop, and two small pieces to tack on for the front part The upper section of the back is fastened with leather hinges, so that it can be opened at pleasure. I Alkali on Western Plains. The alkali soils so common in portions of the west when tho rainfall is low •re familiar to most farmers. Professor tadd of tho North Dakota station iu a letter to Rural New. Yorker says concerning these soils: The chief ingredients are sodium carbonate (sal soda), sodium sulphate [flaubors salts), magnesium sulphate [epftoiu salts) and sodium chloride (common salt). Of these tho first, or black iUtell, is most dreaded, for it produces 0he "gumbo" soil and destroys plant life When present iu considerable quantities. The application of land plaster will Change tho injurious sodium carbonate to •odium sulphate, the neutral and loss harmful salt, so that plants that formerly would not grow on the laud thrive •nd produce vrelL In some oases, how•war, drainage must be had, and the Injurious salts washed out of the laud. fTroju the foregoing it will be aeon that th* alkali in wot duo to tho presence of "valuable commercial fertilizers." | l4Mlo«a Wltuat. * Item facto »ubmittod,4o tbo management of tbo central experiment farm •t Ottawa, it appears that, while it is powiblo to make good bread from La- Aoga flour, it U much easier to make fattad of an inferior quality, and unless the proper methods for treating this flow to procure uniformly good results opuld bo ascertained it i» not Hkoly that IVadogawiU bo acceptable cither to mill- are or baksrw as long ut the flour of tho Bed Fife is obtainable; heuoe wherever B«4 Fife can be ripened the effort* of IhoM settlors engaged in wheat growing in the northwest should be directed to Ui production in the greatest perfection to eafljr »owiug and • uropor propara gMOftbeMil. UlHIcuUjr of Growing AlfaUa. The chief difficulty of growing alfalfa is in getting a good stand and caring for it the first season. It is particularly adapted to dry land and will yield fair crops of splendid hay even without rain or surface moisture, but will produce much better and larger quantity by having plenty of moisture at tho proper time, which is just after a crop has been taken from the land. Prairie Farmer says: If sown in spring with oats, it will usually got a good start before the oat crop is harvested, and with the assistance of light showers it will spring up again and grow almost an winter. After the first year it will find moisture beneath the surface by sinking a long taproot to tho depth of several feet, if necessary, and hence drought has no effect upon it as a plant Note* of Local Intureit. Active preparations are being made for tho next national irrigation congress to be held in September. That tho irrigation idea is spreading and is becoming more widely appreciated is shown by the iucruusod attention given to tho subject by tho agricultural press generally all over the country. Binoe the price of wheat has been slow, feeders everywhere have been experimenting in feeding it to hogs, and tho results as a rule have been satisfactory. Tho plan to establish colonies of farmers in Wyoming will meet with favor in that state. An investigation by tho Kansas City Time* indicates "that hog raisers find it more profitable to feed wheat in the grain than to grind it Outtlo feeders, on tho other hand, observe a profit iu feeding tho milled product of wheat" It is reported that some of tho farmers of Minnesota are putting in only one-third as uiuoh whout iis lust your uu account of tho very low prices.

ATLANTIC, Ta., May 5.—The district court room waa the scane oE a. hand to hand encounter between Attorneys Major H. G. Curtis and John Hudspeth. The preliminary hearing oil A. W. Dickerson, cashier of the collapsed Cass county bank, against the stockholders waa called up. The petition of the plaintiff avering that the bank, when put in the hands of a receiver, was a private bank, was filed March 29, but the defendants did not file an answer to the petition until Friday, causing some annoyance to Major Curtis, Cashier Dickerson's attorney. When the petition was placed on record Curtis made a motion to strike out part of its contents, and in the course of his remarks, while arguing the motion, said that the defendants were scared. "Yes, very much scared," sarcastically interrupted John Hudspeth, one of the attorneys for the defendant. "And," continued Mr. Curtis, 'iyou will be scared more before we get through with you." He proceeded with his argument, when Hudspeth again interrupted him. You will please put a stop on your mouth," said Curtis, "and not ring your bell until it is time." At this Hudspeth rose to his feet and volunteered • to put a stop on Curtis' mouth. Mr. Curtis arose in his dignified manner and doubling up his fists, said "Come on." The men grappled with each other and knocked over piles of law books and ink bottles amidst the greatest excitement in the courtroom. Hudspeth had secured a Qraeco-Roman hold on Curtis when he was pulled away by Clerk of Courts Ambrose Pellett. Judge Macy promptly assessed a fine of $26 against each of the belligerents for contempt of court. Hudspeth then asked for a stay in order that he might file an affidavit of extenuation. The petition filed by the defense in the Cass County bank case alleges that the bank was a. copartnership from the founding of the concern until the date of its failure, D?c. 37, 189H. President's Addreu DUonsscd. DEsMoiNES, May 5.—Friday's meeting of the American Protective association was largely consumed in the discussion of Jihe president's address and decla. ration of principles, which are very long. It is understood the president, in his address, favors compelling foreigners to reside in America 21 years before becoming citizens. 'One faction favors 13 years, the other supports the president. Another question that has been agitating the council is the attitude toward ex- "prieste who are lecturing in various parts of the country, presumably in the interest of the A. P. A,, but really attack-tag the Catholic church. State Secretary Jackson secured the passage of a resolution in the state committee .cutting the order loose from the priests Ex-Priest McNamara vigorously oppose* this in supreme council, but the latter body sustained the state committee, Des JMolnes People Disgusted. DBS MODJKS, May 6.—The folks who have been feeding Kelly's army here are becoming disgusted. The men have made no attempt to keep the cam] clean, and it is now in a disgusting state so much so that there is apprehension o an outbreak of disease, At the confer ence the plan of building flatboats am floating down the Des Moines river t the Mississippi near Keokuk was seri ously discussed by Kelly and friends. ublican senators have led the Democrats o infer that when the amendments are ublicly announced, and the assurance of vote sufficient to pass the bill is given, ley will yield 4o the majority, they 88- ert privately that they know the neces- iry votes cannot be obtained, and de- lare the Democrats in the senate are radually approaching more serious rouble than they have yet encountered; nd, in making this statement, they as- ert Senators Murphy and Smith are as oubtt'ul as is Senator Hill in the sup- ort of the bill as it is to be amended. The Democrats express the greatest onfulence in the success of the bill. enator Faulkner said the bill would ecome a law before the 15th of June, nd that congress would adjourn by the th of July. Other Democratic sena- ors declared the tariff bill would pass lie senate before the 1st of June. It Is oticeable, however, that some of the )ernocratic senators nre canvassing the irobabilities of securing the Populist ote in the senate, and they say Sena- ors Allen and Kyle will vote for the ill, so they can loose Hill. Murphy and Smith if necessary and still have the re- uisite 43 votes. The program of the Democratic mangers is to' introduce the tariff amend' ments on Monday, have them taken'up n the full committee on finance on 'uesday and reported to the senate so as o continue the debate after that date. Uemlse of Captain Matthews. FAHIBUBY, Neb., May 5,—Captain Austin W, Matthews, clerk of the district court, died suddenly from heart failure. Captain Matthews was a veteran of the Mexican war and in the late war commanded a company of the Second Kansas eavalry. He had resided in this county since 1874. He was 68 years old. The funeral services will be conducted by the Masonic order and Grand Army of the Republic post. CONGRESSMEN DOCKED. 'hoy Feel Reluctant to Surrender Part of Their Snlnry. WASHINGTON, May 6.—Congressional alaries for the month of April came due Triday, so members had their first ex- wrience with the new procedure of 'docking" for absenteeism. Thursday U. members flled their certificates show- ng the number of days, if any, ,they had >een absent. Friday about 50 more cer- ificates were put in, leaving about 100. unaccounted for. In the certificates thus far received, six days is the greatest number of absent days admitted by any member. The 'dockage" for this, at $13.69 and 8 mills >er day, is $83,IS. The groat majority if the members certify they have not )een absent at all, and the most of those who certify absence limit the period to one or two days. At this rate, the total deduction will be small. The congressmen are showing much uneasiness in making out the certificates, is there is nothing beyond their word of ionor to show how many days they have been absent. They feel reluctant to surrender a part of their salary, and are yet bound in honor to report the days for which deduction should be made. United State* Marshals Arraigned. WASHINGTON, May 5.—Senator Power presented a petition adopted at a mass meeting in Butte, Mont., declaring in favor of the organization 'of "a home guard of the Ooxey army to assist in case necessary," and calling on the Montana congressional delegation to demand that all further interference with-the forward march of the Coxey army be discontinued. The resolutions denounce the deputy United States marshals of Montana and refers to those who fired on the Coxeyitos as "a baud of mercenaries composed of the scum of t humanity in the employ of the government." Favor Building New Torpedo Boat* WASHINGTON, May 5.—Senator Mo Pherson, chairman ot the committee on naval affairs, favorably reported the amendment to the naval appropriation bill, authorizing the construction of 12 ew torpedo boats. The amendment rovides that the cost of the boats shall ot exceed jaOO.OOO, and they are to be apable of making a speed of 85 knots [»r hour. He recommends the appro- riation of fl ,000,000 in case the con- truction of the boats is authorized.
