^•J ^lt^MB***1a*i* ' B**********i I tftofc'^T L_*4aiii*k^ l ( r ALL AROUND THE FARM. A Randy ttnmonmde Barrow—Easy Way of Hut-rowing n Field. Almost any farmer possessed of a little mechanical skill may manufacture at home the harrow originally ilVustrat ed in The New England Homestead and described as folloVvs: The frame of the harrow is made of oak or other tough wood, and the pieces may be 8 by 4 inches, or any size do sired, according as the harrow is to be light or heavy. The two side pieces should be about 8 feet long and the middle pieoe one foot longer. A good fic-a- ; AN EPFECtrVE BARROW. plan is to get the timber hewed out and •dressed nearly while green and then to allow it to season a month or two before putting together. In making the harrow round off the ends of all the frame pieces, and then bore at least three half inch holes through at right angles to the direction of the teeth, one hole at least six inches from each end and another in the mid- •dle. Put halt inch bolts in each hole •and screw up. If preferred, rivets may be used instead of bolts. The object is 'to prevent splitting. Have a blacksmith make two irons each like those represented by Figs. 8 and 4. To get the size 'Of these irons lav the frame out in the •desired shape and then measure where '•the dotted lines are shown in Fig.l. The plates at Fig. 8 should be about three-sixteenths of an inch thick and 3 inches wide, with inch holes drilled, as shown; Two of these plates are used, one on tho upper side and one below, and the frame bolted to them snugly. The iron plates at Fig. 4 should be 3 inches wide and quite thick. Their position is shown in the dotted lines. They are bolted to the sides with suitable bolts, and the three holes on the other end enable the harrow to be expanded or contracted by simply removing the top of the middle bolt and slipping the wings back and forth. An ordinary plow swivel may be attached to the front end or a bolt run ithrongh, with projeoitng ends and a •wire loop fastened. In either case put a rivet in the end to prevent splitting. .Harrow teeth an inch square, like those ehown in Fig. 5, are to be used and maybe purchased ready made, or any blacksmith may make them. They are out with spurs, which serve to hold them securely in place when driven tightly through the inch holes, which DRAGGING A FIELD. should be bored for them not nearer than eight inches. Fig.. 3 represents the manner of attaching a pair of plow handles to the harrow, if desired. Of course tbo harrow should be painted. The same journal illustrates a very easy manner of dragging or harrowing a field. Oftentimes the fields are small, ; and the corner .turning requires too much time. Again, if the season is late and immediate planting necessary, time may be saved by the continued dragging possible withou 1 - stopping square at each corner. To thus drag a field crossways is much easier than to drag straight Make a long curve the first crossing to the outside of the field. Take Care of the Ohlclu. ' Too great care cannot be tdken in guarding against lice on the little chicks, but when onoo they appear insect powder dusted through/the feathers is the easiest and surest remedy. A thorough application of lard to the top of the head and-under, the wings is also a cure, but au uncomfortable oue to patient and doctor, As soon as tho chicks I are batched a new nest should bo provided and mother and chicks dusted with the Persian, insect powder. The poultry run should bo plowed or spaded as often as onco a fortnight end abundant shelter from the BUII'B my" bo provided. > Much is written concerning poultry food, but only now and tlum does uomo writer emphasize tho iiecoKHity of supplying oil abundance of fresh wutor. A writer in.yFarm, Field mid Fireside claims that through euuunur's hout u chiukon needs a cool drink ua much us does a harvest Luud. i - _ Our Foreign Potato Trade. • A good many 'statements are made about our foreign trade in potatoes. U is uot generally known that we have a mowing export trade in this vegetable. fu the year ending June 1, 1888, wo imported potatoes to tho value of $3,•000,680. Tho heaviest importations were at New York, $1,407,828; Boston, $304,007, and PMJadlepbia, $110,870. Iu lite aauie, period wo exported $700,• 083 worth of potatoes. Tho bulk of this trade was witb tUe countrier south of ma—Cuba, $654,168; Mexico, $37,504; •Venezuela, $31,097, eta The potato itrade with Cuba, like (hat in flour* is uu almost diveotveHult of the v ireaties.—-lioral Now Yorker. i JJoeliim'B Moutlily bus shown that U" l»oat troublesome wee6>-uot even nou ivy or O'lwuUt thistle-—cau\ Uvo it tl»° young leaves, we, put'away a? tlwy appear fur WHITE LEGHORNS. A typical Variety of a trnlferiinlty Popular Breed of Fowls, Among the Leghorns none is mote typical than the white variety. The buff just now is the reigning favorite and will always be a very popular variety, but the white has been so long established and withal is so excellent a fowl that it may well be selected as a type of the whole breed—and, for that matter, the Whole class. When the buff, ,which is already breeding well and improving yearly, has become as well established as the white, there are good reasons to believe that it will be the most popular variety iu the whole class. It is that at the present, but its popularity now, to some extent, rests upon its newness. In a few years its boom, as a boom, will have spent its force, and the fowl will settle down to its proper place upon its merits. The white did that long ago, says a writer in The Country Gentleman, the authority for the following: The white Leghorn was some years later in arriving iu this country than the brown. The white Leghorn has always seemed to be larger than the brown and to lay a larger egg. The new buff variety appears larger than the white, but until its appearance the white took the lead in apparent size. ..To do its best the Leghorn needs a range of green fields in the summer, but even when kept in small yards, if well fed and cored for, it will lay so well as to prove a highly profitable fowl. As a table fowl—but Leghorns are not table fowls—their bodies are small, and when old the flesh is rather dry. WHITE LEGHORNS. But they 'have their use because of their early maturity. Leghorn males crossed on heavier hens produce a quick growing and plump broiler. The white Leghorn illustrates a singular fact. White fowls appear to be less hardy than colored varieties of the same breed, but the white Leghorn seems to be as hardy as any variety of this breed. It stands out as an exception to the general rula The chicks are a trifle delicate; as all quick feathering chickens are. Those which are slow in feathering, that outgrow their down and go about with more or less bare and red spots, are the ones that are hardy. Those that feather quickly make so great demand upon the constitution that it is not surprising that gome succumb in the process. But the fact that so many keep Leghorns proves that the delicacy of the chickens is no insuperable difficulty to their rearing. Leghorn males are extremely active, and fertilize the eggs remarkably well A sitting of Leghorn eggs is quite likely to produce a full brood of chickens. Fewer males in proportion to the females than are required in many other breeds need to be kept. If one needs to keep 1 male to 10 females in Asiatics, he can safely increase the number of females with a Leghorn cockerel to 15. One provoking characteristic in the chickens, however, is the numerous males. There will be fully 50'per cent, taking one year with another, of cockerels in the broods, and as these are worth much less than the pullets—will, in fact, bring but a small amount of money when sold—it is a serious drawback to the breeding of Leghorns. I4*ted Mid Surface Planted Corn. An experiment was tried on 80 plots under the auspices of the Kansas experiment -station. It involved two trials: First, listed versus surface planted^ and, second, deep, shallow and surface culture for each of the two methods of planting. The rows were, as usual, 8)£ feet apart and the stalks 16 inches apart in the row, two kernels having been planted in a place and the plants thinned to this stand. The variety used was the corn known as "Farmer's Favorite." Tho methods of culture may be defined as follows: Deep culture means the use of the old fashioned, two horse 1 cultivator, with four shovels. It was put deeply into the ground. Shallow culture means iu this case that a "Daisy spring tooth cultivator," with eight small shovels, was used instead of tho implement just described. Deep and : shallow culture moans that the first | time tho «*ru was plowed the spring 1 tooth cultivator was used, but that tho largo cultivator was used the two succeeding plowiugs, and tho last time the i spring tooth cultivator was used again, and, lastly, surface culture weans that tho surface wan scraped with a "Tower's cultivator," which merely scrapes tho weeds off tho very surface of the ground. • Each of these methods of culture was given to both tho listed ,uud surface planted ooru. Lust year listed and deep culture gave the best results, followed by surface planted and shallow culture, and the latter method of planting and culture gives tho best results during the two years' trials.

THE WOMEN WILL FIGHT Cripple Creek Miners' Wives Arming Themselves. MINERS READY FOR AN ATTACK, fteputlei May Advance on bull Hill Any Moment — Governor WaltoJRefiues to Call Out the Mllltla— Woods Kidnapped by Miners — Striken Drafting Recruit*. Women Assist In the Work, CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo., June 4.— All day Sunday the striking miners were on the alert expecting that any moment some of Sheriff BoWer's deputies would put in an appearance in some remote portion of the camp, Not a single miner is working in the camp. One shift was put in on the Moose, Elkton, Prince Albert, Gold Dollar, Ingham, Jack G- and a few other properties, but the managers of the several mines were informed at noon that it would be impossible to run any of the properties. The miners are ready for an attack and this is so well known by the deputies that the officer commanding is using the utmost caution. All men not necessary to guard approaches to Bull Hill -and forage for supplies have been massed about the fortification, and their number is slightly over 1,800. La»t Forage For Armi. Sunday the strikers made .their last forage for arms, ammunition and supplies. Fearing a siege they have filled hundreds of beer kegs with water and stored them in the fort. Parties of ' strikers have been drafting recruits. Many of these parties were headed by women who promise to stand till the end comes. The towns of Victor, Anaconda, Mound City and other places are in the possession of squads of armed ! strikers. The plan of the strikers is to ' meet the deputies and make as strong a ! stand as possible, and if necessary retreat to Bull Hill, where a desperate stand will be made. The deputies will be commanded in the field by W. K. Palmer, leader of the army that had so many scrimmages during the building of the Denver and Bio Grande road. He says that any moment the deputies may advance to a point beyond Midland, after which a battle will be only a quea- ; tion of hours. Miner.' Wives Will Fight. The miners hailed with delight the words of Governor Waite in response to Sheriff Bowers' demand for troops and , they now look forward to a battle, the end of which will be" either victory or extermination. Open threats against Colorado Springs are made as a result of the treatment of Governor Waite and John Calderwood. The wives of strikers refuse to leave camp. Some of them have organized to care for the wounded and others have procured Winchesters and will enter the fight. The miners know not what to do if the militia is called out and they believe Governor Waite to be their friend but while here he said to the miners: "The law has been violated and I shall see that it is enforced in the future at any cost." It is expected Deputy Marshals Wise and Browne will soon be in camp to serve summons on the officers of the Union to appear at St. Louis in the court of appeals. They will offer no resistance as they fear federal authority. Miner* iMUed • Statement. The miners' union issued a statement giving their side of the trouble between the miners and the mina owners. It recites that on Jan. 1 there were 40 producing mines in the camp, that of these 88 were working 9-hour shifts, nine working nine, and the remainder 10 hours, all for |3 per day. The miners gave notice that on Jan. 30 they would demand uniform wages, or |H for a day of eight hours work. On Feb. I J. J. Hagerman posted notices on all his properties that from that date on nine hours would be required for |3 a day, and $a.75 would be paid for eight hours. The union refused to accept Mr. Hagerman's proposition. An arbitration committee was appointed, but the owner refused to meet the miners and a lockout was ordered. The miners claim the preseat trouble > has been brought about by the hiring of deputiee-andPink- ertons, _ GOVERNOR WAITE REFUSES AID.

Hri, Helen Cougar Compelled to Antwer Question* to Criminate Herself. BbSToN, June 4.—By an unprecedented ruling of Judge Putnam in the United States circuit court, Helen M. Gougar of Lafayette, Ind,, has been compelled to file answers to questions put to her by Congressman Elijah Morse in the now famous libel suit in which Mrs. Gougar asks $125,000 damages. Some of the answers are as follows: The defendant inquires if Mrs. Gottgar received . compensation for political speeches. She answers, "Yes." In Massachusetts during the last presidential campaign she received $5,000 for 16 speeches; in 1800 she received $1,000 from the Prohibition party for speaking once or twice per day for a month, . She also said she made like speeches in other states and received some compensation. She also admits she stumped the state of Indiana for Blaine and Logan in 18f*, but only received $100 for speeches outside the state. She also stumped Wisconsin, Illinois and Kansas for Blaine in 1884 and received pay. The famous letter which she wrote Ida Harper of Indiana, in which she said she would teach the hypocritical Republicans a lesson by carrying New York add Indiana for the Democrats was brought up and the plaintiff waived answer. .Mrs. Gougar denied ever having published the letter in a paper called the New Era in Springfield, Ilia. . Trouble Liable to Entno. BALTIMORE, June 4.—Victory Smith, attorney, claims that should the English cruiser reach Johnson or Neckar island first and raise the British flag trouble is likely to ensue.
