•^vfti^'Tj^^s^ TWO EXPIRED PATENTS. A Wagon Tailboard Made In Two Parti. An Improved Feed Trough. 1 Among a number of expired patents recently illustrated and described by the Ohio Farmer are the following. These are now public property to all who de- Bire to use them: The first one is a tailboard made in two parts, A and B, Figs. 1 and 2, the former being L shaped and the'latter in the form END GATES FOEWAGONS. of an inverted L. These two parts are pivoted together by a pin, a, passing vertically through them so that they open and close as desired. The inner edges of these parts are beveled as shown. On the outer side, near each end of the board, is .fastened a bar or cleat, C, to prevent warping. A latch, D, is-pivoted to the part A, its outer end being cut with a tenon, b, to enter a groove on the inner edge of the cross bar C upon the part B. ! The sides of the wagon box in which this end gate is to be used are to have vertical grooves for the insertion of the ends of the board, and when these are Inserted therein the center of the board is pressed forward, making it straight, after which the latch D is turned down across the joint to hold the tailboard firmly, .Fig. 2.' To prevent the latch from jumping out by jolting, a bolt, d, may be attached to its upper edge at the outer end and made to enter the crossbar C. The second patent is that of an improved feed trough. The novel features of this invention are the transverse partitions, E, and the top rail, F. The object of these partitions is to prevent any animal in feeding from seeing-his neighbor, BO that he will not therefore attempt to interfere with him or drive him away. They also serve to prevent the animal from getting into the trough and fouling it, as hogs are always desirous to do. These partitions do not reach to the bottom of the trough, and the slop or liquid food may then flow from one end to the other, and each animal will obtain his share without a special distribution. The top rail, F, is designed to prevent any animal from crossing the trough, but will permit free access from either IN THE CORNFIELD. Conclusions llrfttrn From Results Gained In Six Consecutive Yean. Shallow cultivation has uniformly givcrt better results than has deep on the dark fertile prairie soil of the Illinois experiment station grounds. Purposed root pruning has in all oases decreased the yield. It has not been proved that comparatively deep culture while the corn is small would be injurious. Unusually frequent cultivation has in some oases decreased the yield, and in no case been profitable. No one implement has been shown to be clearly superior to all others. It is believed the boat results can be secured with the smallest expenditure of time and labor by having the ground in good condition at the time of planting, beginning cultivation before grass or weeds have made much growth, and stirring the entire surface of the soil as nearly as practicable to the depth of not more than two or three inches, often enough to keep the surface well pulverized and to prevent the growth of weeds and grass. Each year yields of corn not much below the average have been secured without any cultivation subsequent to planting) except scraping the surface with a sharp hoe to prevent the growth of weeds. On soils of different texture other methods of cultivation may be better. Repeated observations show that the percentage of dry matter in the corn plant, both stalk and ear, increases up to the time of maturing. It has not been shown that the digestibility is decreased as maturity increases. In many oases the palatability of both stalk and ear does decrease. Leaving the stalks uncut until they reach full maturity increases probability of loss from storms and often makes it necessary to harvest the crop in less favorable weather. It seems clearly proved, however, that there often has been a considerable loss In the total food value of the crop by cutting it at too early a stage, whether designed for ensilage or for dry fodder. The percentage of water in the young corn plant is surprisingly large, while the quantity of dry matter and the food value is very much less than that f onnd the plant approaches full maturity. In no year out of the six was any material difference shown in the yield of corn, whether planted in hills or drills, where an equal number of kernels was planted and the ground kept equally Free from weeds. The tests at the station indicate the advisability of the selection of medium rather than either early or late maturing varieties—those with ears above the average, but. not remarkably large in si«e, and those which combine as many, good qualities a* possible. As a rule, it is not advisable to select for the main crop a variety which lias been produced far north or south of the latitude in which it is to be planted. DISCUSS FREE LUMBER. Several Speeches In Favor Retaining Present Duty. WALSH MAKES HIS FIRST SPEECH. A GOOD FEED TBOUOH tide. The utility of this feed trough !• obvious, and it w a great improvement over those in common use, by the employment of which the larger hogs are permitted to crowd away the little ones and eventually obtain all the food for themselves. The end pieces, B, are made to project as in the drawing, and in them are cut hand holes, C, for the convenient application of the hands when the trough is to be moved. l A New Indiutrjr There was a time when most of the western cattle came east on their feet. I They were slaughtered at the east, and their blood and bones went to nearby fertilizer factories. Later the .cattle ware slaughtered in the west and camo east as dressed beef, yet still most of the blood and bone caino with them. Far- peeing uion saw that this was wrong— that the time would como when the phosphoric acid and nitrogen taken from the laud by these cattle would have to be replaced. The actual need has como sooner thun was oxpoctod. At all tho great western factories blood, tankage and bone aro prepared for fertilizers, and the old time wholesaling has given place to a retail trade. This year thousands of western farmers aro buy lug small lots of these blood and bone fertilizers for the first time. Oiio thing the western buyer mid'seller seem to forgot i—that these bono goods contain little or Iio potash. We believe they luuko a mistake lit so strongly advocating tho use of nitrogen and phosphoric uoid without waking it clear that for tho best results tholr goods should bo used with kainit or muriate of potash. Sooner or Jater they vvHl be forced to admit that potaehis needed, It will not answer to fertilise. 0 Tun down gralpllold op the principle thrt »•*«« o» d Krain exhaust the land of the »»"><» elements, says ' . the nro- Preventing Potato Scab. Results of experiments at the Dakota and Michigan stations show that treatment of seed potatoes with a weak solu tion of corrosive sublimate has been very successful. Dissolve an ounce of the sublimate in a quart of hot water and add it to a barrel containing 15 gallons of water. Immerse the potatoes, cut or uncut, for 00 minutes, using a sack or basket. As corrosive sublimate is a deadly poison, it should bo carefully handled, and neither solution nor seed should be left within reach of animals. -< Building a Hay Shed. A plan for building a hay shed which has great advantages over the old plans, as a hay fork can be used with it very conveniently, is thus described by Ohio Farmer: In tho first bent the middle polo thai supports the ridge board is placed perpendicular, an shown in Fig. 2. The oth er interior posts aro set with foot against outside posts and tops meeting at ridge board in center, as shown at B B, Fig. Of commit we by the Democrats and Representative Wolverton (Pa.) The minority report is drawn by Representative ttny (N. Y.) and signed by Messrs. Rav, Powers, Stone, tTpdegraf awl Childa. The report characterizes the measure as an effort to revive the exploded doctrine of state sovereignty. RUSSIA REFUSES TO DIAGRAMS Or A HAY SHED. 1. This loaves the center of building free from obstruction, and a track can be put up next the comb and the hay taken in from the outside. This makes a much stronger frame, as tho inclined posts form braces, which prevent the shed from racking over to ono side, as is the case with the old frames. A A, outside polos, wo sot 8% feet deep in tho ground—an iron or steel roof is suggested as being lighter and cheaper than shingles or boards. Favors the Income Tax mill Free Coinage of Silver Without International Agreement—Captain Sampson's Testimony on Armor Plate Frauds — Brecklnrldire's Motion Overruled. WASHINGTON, May 91).—The senate pent eight hours Monday discussing the uestion of free lumber. Not a vote was liken. The tariff bill places lumber in he rough on the free list. The debate was upon Hale's proposition to trans- er lumber to the dutiable list at he rates fiaed in the McKinley law. Senators Frye and Hale (Me.) and Per- ltins(Cal.), Mitchell and Dolph (Or.), whose states are most particularly ffected in the lumber industry, occupied he major portion of the time in the upport of Hale's amendment.. Mr. Walsh, the new senator from Jeorgia, delivered a speech on the gen- ral subject of the ' tariff. Referring to an assertion by Hoar in a recent speech hat the south was endeavoring to ruin he industries of New England to get ven, Mr. Walsh declared the people had no hostility for the people or the Indus- Ties of New England. . Walsh Favors the Income Tax. "The senators from the south," he said, 'are in this body to simply carry out the iledges made to the people by the Dem- wratic party to reform the tariff and in connection with the tariff reform bill hey champion an amendment to it vhich provides for a tax upon incomes. ?he south favors the income tax, not 'rom a sectional or partisan standpoint, tut because it is equitable- and right. 7he Wilson bill as amended in the senate s a compromise. It will be so construed and accepted by the great majority of he American people who elected President Cleveland and placed the Democratic party in powsr." In reference to the silver question he laid: "While it is desirable to secure he remonetization of silver, by interna- ional agreement, still, if the opportunity offered, I would not hesitate for free coinage, with or without international agreement, believing thn immense re- lources and productive energies of thia country would enable our government ;o sustain it on a parity with gold and compel recognition for it from the en- ightened governments of Europe." He also favored the repeal of the tax on state bank circulation. ARMOR PLATE INVESTIGATION. government Has Paid the Cost of Carnegie's Plant Several Time*. WASHINGTON, May 29.—In the armor plate investigation Monday Captain Sampson, in explaining the matter of ;aking samples, said an employe of the Carnegie works took the samples and subjected them to machine tests. The Carnegie employe called off the results and the government inspector took tne Sgnres as called off. "In other words," said Chairman Cummings, "the government testa were made by Carnegie employes, with a Carnegie machine and were accepted as conclusive by the government?" Captain Sampson said this was customary the world over. In the intricate processes some reliance bad to be placed on the company employes. The testing machine had a dial on which the government inspector might see that the checking off was correct. The 18-inch armor of the Monterey had numerous blowholes with the acknowledge of the department. The plates were hurriedly made in 1893 and would not be accepted now. The Monterey plates were the first made. Tho Chilian trouble was ending and the department was desirous of hurrying forward the work. Chairman Cnmmings asked as to the statement of Representative Coombs (N. Y.) that the first government contract had paid the Carnegie company for the cost of their plant, and yet now contracts were being made at the old rate, thus paying the Carnegios several times for their plant. Captain Sampson said ho thought I it was to some extent true that the more j recent contracts were based on tho earlier contracts, when the cost of tho plant was considered in making tbo price for armor. ADMIT HIM. Dan Placed Upon an Eminent Hebrew- American Divine. WASHINGTON, May 2H.—Resolutions submitted by Representative Raynov (Md.) to the ho'itso recites that tho Russian government has denied admission to that coiintry of Rabbi Kratu- kopf, an eminent Hebrew ecclesiastic of Philadelphia, and that this action is n breach of the treaty which gives American citizens right to enter, sojourn and travel in Russia the same as Russian citizens are admitted to this country. The resolution will direct the state department to make a demand on Russia for the full observance of the trgaty and in case of a refusal will direct the severance of all treaty relations with Russia. Dr. Krauskopf came here recently and was accompanied by Representative Tracey and Representative Strauss in calls on President Cleveland, Secretary Gresham and other officials. It was then arranged that Secretary Gresham should notify the Russian government of Dr. Krauskopf's proposed visit and to ascertain if there was any objection. The response came quickly that the czar's officials could not permit the visit. Mr. Raynor now presents the question of the treaty right of an American to go to Russia without reference to his religion or former nationality. The proposed visit of tir. Krauskopf was for the purpose of visiting the ninth province, within which Russia restricts the Jews, and to ameliorate their condition. KILL ELEVEN MINERS. Colorado Miners Blow Up Shafts With Giant Powder, A REIGN OF TEKROft AT VICTOR, Ordered B Favorable Report. WASHINGTON, May 39.—The house committee on public lands has ordered a favorable report on the bill introduced by Representative Lynch (Wis.) effecting settlements on public lands under what is known, as the stone and timber act. The act provides that lands should be offered at public sale, but many entries were made in good faith upon sections which were not so offered. The bill is designed to give those settlers clear titles to their lands. MoMasters Requested to Resign. WASHINGTON, May 29,—The resignation of Alexander M. McMasters, supervising inspector of steam vessels in Buffalo, has been requested by the secretary of the treasury. , Brecklnrldge's Motion Overrated.

An luuri'tuta iu the tuxalilu valuiition of Vhe Mine Owners Commitndlng the Strikers' Hrenstworkg With n Itlfle Cwnnon—Mam- Ing Armed Deputies nt Cripple Creek. Itead.v to Receive Rioters Ut Paint—Ten* neisec miners Return to Work, Cim>rr,E CKEEK, Colo., May 28.— Eleven men killed, With a strong probability that the number of dead will be increased when all is known, is the record of tho first day of trouble here, although real fighting has not yet began, as the deputies are awaiting reinforcements before beginning active operations. At ib o'clock Friday morning 11 men started to work in the Strong mine, on Battle mountain. Shortly afterwards a large party of strikers blew up the shaft house witli powder, causing a loss of f 25,000, and then dropped 100 pounds of gaint powder down the shaft, which also exploded, killing all the inmates. Not more than 400 yards from the Strong 'shaft hous' 1 . 16 men, who had been engaged to do the work in the Independence mine, were surrounded in their bnnkhousp, and after a long parley agreed to surrender. Each one was armed with a rifle and a brace of revolvers, the arms now being in the hands of the strikers. It is rumored that the strikers attacked the Anna Lee mine, overpowering the guards, after which they blew up the shaft house, but the rumor has not been verified. Miners Armed With lliflos. When the deputies are finally massed and tho two forces come together a most desperate battle will doubtless be fought. The situation is one of the most painful anxiety. Not a few believe the town will be a smouldering mass of ruins if the strikers are not restrained. At Victor, six miles away, where fully 1,000 people reside, a reign of terror exists. Within a half mile of the corporation limits of the town all day long fully 800 union miners armed with rifles haVe paraded up and down the side of the bill. Occasionally a detour into the village would be made, and people whom the miners thbught to be objectionable were ordered to leave 'the place. The guards from Denver, upon arrival at Victor j went into camp on a neighboring hill. The strikers threw out a picket line entirely surrounding the mines, batata distance that guarantees them safety from the deputies' rifles. It is said the strikers have planted under their breastworks on the hill a quantity of dynamite with the intention of blowing it np if it should be taken and occupied by the deputies. Dava Planted m.Blfle Cannon. One of the largest mine owners in Colorado Springs is authority for the statement that the mine owners 'have planted a rifled cannon on a hill commanding the breastworks, and that it will be used to dislodge the strikers from that position. ' Sain McDonald, superintendent of the Strong, Anna Lee and Gold King mines, and Charles Robinson, foreman of the Strong, are missing, which gives credence to the story of slaughter. If the men were in certain portions of the. mine the concussion may n'ot have killed them. Sam Strong, owner of the mine, is given as authority for the statement that 11 men were killed. It rained furiously Friday night. Deputies have been coming in quietly, and, it is thought, an unexpected move is anticipated. . All sorts of rumors concenrng the do- Ings at the Strong mine aro afloat. One of them is to the effect that the workmen were not killed having bcien warned off by masked strikers. All the telephona connection bos boon broken, and it is feared the telegraph wimi will «o next. The deputies from Denver havo withdrawn to a less exposed position wheiv they will await reinforcements, Tho strike™ from their stronghold on Dull bill can view the country for miles. No one is permitted near enough tho seat of war to be in danger, and the streets of Cripple Creek und Victor, as well is the posses, are patrolled by miners carrying Winchesters and revolvers. Wot Mine For Shlpmcn*. HENDERSON, Ky., May 20.— One hundred and fifty miners in the DeKoVeit mines and 100 men in the Jnrvis-BartleV mine* have struck. They were wilting to mine coal for home use, but refused to mine any for shipment.
