HOMEMADE IMPLEMENTS. An' Effective Hand Cultivator and nil Inci- pensive lint t?eeful Clod Crnnlicr. Following are the directions for making a hand cultivator that was originally illustrated in American Gardening: Take a piece of oak, ash or some •wood of similar firmness 2^ feet long, inches thick and 4 inches wide; cut HOMEMADE HAND CULTIVATOR. * slot iu the front pud 2 inches wide and 10 inches long, and in the back end • similar slot 8 inches long. These slots are for carrying wheels, which are in this case made of inch pine boards. The front one is to be a foot in diameter, and the other 8 inches iu diameter. The teeth of this cultivator are made of two old forks, one a three tined aud the other a four tined. These forks had each a tine broken two inches shorter than the rest. After the tines are shortened so as to be all of the same length, they are heated and sharpened and shank bent, if necessary, to give them the proper angle, about 45 degrees. serted in the beam, this can be determined by experiment. Bore two or three holes in the back •f beam, by which tho wheel can be raised or lowered to regulate the depth of cultivation. For the handles, 4 inch pine strips ont down to 2 inches to give hand holds can be used, or old plow or cultivator handles that may be on baud will do instead, if not too heavy. A clod crusher for which especial 'claims are made was'recently described Jn The New England Homestead. To irmake a similar one take three light jpoles 4 or 6 inches in diameter and 7 or A GOOD CLOD CBUSHER. 8 feet long; also a plank 12 or 14 inches wide. In front two pieces 4 by 4 are bolted across, each piece being notched. This rough evener will crush lumps, even the field and smooth the horses' tracks. Fighting- Chinch BURR. From the Kansas station we have had reports of the experments of Professor Snow of Kansas in killing chinch bugs by scattering diseased bugs about the fields. The same thing was tried in Nebraska last year. The facts are given in bulletin 84 of the Nebraska station. First, large quantities of live tmga were secured and placed in breeding cages. The next step was to obtain a supply of dead bugs that had been killed by a disease bearing the name oi Bporotrichum globulifemm. This dis- •ease was spread among the healthy tongs, and the latter were sent all over the state to spread the disease in the fields as it was spread in the breeding cages. The manner of proceeding is .about as follows: The infected bngs come from a station in a tin box. The farmer then takes a shallow wooden box, places in it green wheat or corn and sprinkles in the infected bngs, alive or dead. He (hen places with them a pint or so of healthy bugs and covers all up for a day or so. Then half these "starters" are to be scattered over the field where the bugs are thickest, another dose put iu (he box and so on through the season. At the end of the season some of the bugs are put aside in a tin box to be kept till •mother season. This, in brief, is the latest method of fighting the chinch bug on large forms. Last season the station distributed tho bags to 164 different farmers. Out of 01 who gave the matter anything ol a trial, 61 reported more or less success. CONSTRUCTION OF HAY SHED3. Provide RhetMIng When flarn Space Ii Short—Don't Trust to Open Stacks. Wo do not bolievo n stack was ever built in the United States that did not waste from 12 to 20 per cent of the hay nnd in many cases from 25 to 30, says the Io\va Homestead. Whila nil this l«ss is not avoided by sheds, for nothing short of n barn will prevent some exposure, the greater per ceut of the loss Will be avoided by tho construction of sheds. We have found 20 by 40 and 10 feet high to bo a very convenient size. We have used 6 by 0 and 8 by 8 for tho posts aud profer-the former size. Thirteen feet is sufficient width apart for the posts aud for a shed of the size mentioned, but 10 posts will be required. Where pine is used it is better to got the posts 10 feet long and bolt them to 'oak posts set iu tho ground three or four feet, so that the oak posts, when rotted, can bis replaced with new without damage to the shod. • These posts can be tied together by four cross timbers, but the cue at the end which the hay goes in should be at least two feet below the top of the post, so as to allow the horse fork full of hay full swing in passing in. Sixteen foot boards will roof each side of this shed. They can be battened il necessary, but if the lumber be reasonably dry it will not shrink enough to do any serious damage. It is astonishing how little water flows into these sheds when the roofs are nnbattened. We prefer, however, to batten. The horse fork can be used, the track being suspended from the roof as in a bam, and the inconvenience of the two inside crosspieces In a barn of the above size can be avoided by putting the hay in in sections and taking care not to let quantities of it lie across tho crosspieces. A shed of this kind can be braced without crosspieces, but not without more or less waste of space. Additional expense can bo added to this shed very profitably. For example, feeding sheds can be attached to it on three sides, preferably the north, west and south. These should be 16 feet wide, 8 feet high at the rear and with a good slope to the roof, and in this case the main shed should be boarded down to the roof of the feeding shed, A hay shed of this kind, with sheds around it, will give 2,200 square feet of shed room, or a floor space of a barn 40 by 56. This can be divided into different sections and the stock fed directly put of the mow into the mangers, thus placing a large amount of stock in one place, with the hay all under one roof. A crib of corn or a bin of oats can be very easily constructed in this shed, so as to have the feed all together. One of the advantages of these sheds is the protection that it affords against the winter blasts, and still another the fact that if abundance of straw is hauled in the manure can be kept through the winter and through the summer if need be under cover and without loss. It is very easy if a farmer wishes to invest still more money to make a barn on this general idea, having a large bay in the center and cattle stalls and sheds all around it. In fact, with the exception of the octagonal barn, this plan will give more accommodations than any other plan of barn with which we ore acquainted. Attachment For Knapiaefc Pomp*. In a report from the Wisconsin station in 1891 was given the description of an attachment to the Climax pump whereby kerosene is mechanically mixed EXCITING COURT SCENE Regular Soldjers Enter a Courtroom For Prisoners.

A Few Trains Moving In California Under Heavy Military Guard. SACRAMENTO, July 17.—During the hearing of a writ of habeas corpus for the release of three Dunsmuit 1 strikers before Judge Catlin, of the state supreme court, a detachment of regulars marched into the court and with evident'intention of taking the prisoner. Judge Catlin immediately arose and called upon persons who ware present to resist any at' tempt of the regulars to take away the strikers. Assistant Attorney Knight excitedly jumped to his feet and met the soldiers as they were entering the court room. He ordered them to return to the depot, which they did after considerable hesitancy. The excitement in the court room wag intense. Several of the spectators reached for their hip pockets and announced their determination to follow Judge Cailin!s instructions to prevent the regulars from taking away the prisoners. Others securely barred the doors leading to the court room and threateningly declared their intention ol resisting the regulars. While the excitement was at fevei heat the distrir; attorney arose and waved the regulars back. He then commanded them to return to tneir quarters at the depot. After the excitement had subsided Judge Catlin ordered the three prisoners remanded to the custody oi the chief of police. They are charged with stealing an engine at Dulismuir. By direction of Marshal Baldwin and Colonel Graham, District Attorney Knight later sent a letter to Judge Catlin explaining that the soldiers had merely been Bent to the courtroom at witnesses and had brought their arms with them under misapprehension and stating that the federal officers wish to correct the impression that they are in any way exceeding their authority. Notwithstanding Knight's explanation that the soldiers were present as witnesses, the fact remains that they first entered the sheriff's office and demanded the surrender of the prisoners. Deputy Sheriff Rooney was in charge of the office at the time and informed them that the men were in Judge Catlln's courtroom. They imnudiately started up stairs to the courtroom, bat Rooney reached there first and told the judge of the object of the soldiers.

While standing in front of the the back building Judge Littlefleld was assaulted by Dr. Clark, who npprocahed, and after say saying "Good morning, judge," without and further warning, struck the judge a severe blow on the side of the head, causing him to reel and grasp a railing support. The attack was the result of an article published in The Herald Sentinel, of which Judge Littlefield is editor, which demanded the removal of Dr. Clark from the office of county physician on account of his alleged drunkenness. Dr. Clark was arrested and taken before Justice Church and his trial set for Thursday. President Caldorwood Surrender!.

In a recent bulletin from the Mississippi station is presented a description of on attachment to tho knapsack pump. At this station effective work has boon done with this attachment in combating tho various cabbage insect pests. Following is a brief summary of tho bulletin referred to: 1. By moans of an attachment to the knapsack pumps wo are now enabled to mechanically mix kerosene with water for use OH nu iu- seotido. S. This mechanical mixture appears to do all tho work of a kerosene emulsion, thus greatly simplifying tho method of applying kerosene as an in- seotido. 8. This attachment is applicable to all the knapsack pumps of the Galloway pattern and can now bo obtained in connection with the "Perfected Galloway" and the "Perfection" knapsacks. 4.

SAN FEANCISCO, July 17.—The Southern Pacific, backed by the combined military forces of the federal and state governments, continues to maintain a fairly satisfactory passenger service in northern California. But notwithstanding this formidable military array the railroad officials hare bean unable to retrieve the lost management of theii freight business. The passenger service, too, is by no means restored, for the trains ar* sidetracked at night time as a precautionary measure against train wreckers. In Oakland Monday morning the strikers formed into several riotous mobs oi about 800 men each. All incoming and outgoing passenger trains were so strong' ly guarded that they wen not interfered with, but the fury of these mob* fell upon such luckless nonunion men at the striken were able to waylay going to and from their work. Several times the troops were called out to diapers* the rioters and rescn* nonunion men. Shortly after noon a freight train was started from the yards on the mole. At the Seventh street crossing the nonunion men In charge of the train found themselves at the mercy of a mob of striken. A striker had managed to climb aboard and cut the airbrake. The train was stalled andjthe rioters, who were soon swarming about, had drawn all the coupling pins. Then a troop of cavalry and a company of infantry came down upon the mob. The cavalrymen used sabers and clubbed with their pistols and the foot soldiers prodded freely with their bayonets. In the struggle two shots were fired by the soldiers, though no one was bit. Tue strikers were finally put to flight. A number of the rioters sought refuge in the cottage of a striking yard foreman. The soldiers afterward raided the house and arrested 91 mm. Several of the rioters were severely out and braised. The freight train was run to a side track and abandoned. After this occurrence the soldiers going on trains u guards were given positive orders to shoot any one who attempted to interfere with any train. Finally a freight train was tent guarded by about 6i>u militia. Out of Bacramento trains are running with loss interference. Passenger train* from the east are now arriving in San Francisco. Eight days' eastern mail was received here Monday. The Southern Pacific officials claim that many of the strikers are applying to be taken Lack uud say employment will bo given to ull but tho must active in organizing the strike.

July It!.—The American Uivon (ju, :.als have determined to make a desperate struggle to regain for that ortl-.r the prestige it has losj in the great strike no'.v rapidly approaching a close. Tlit; i xvcutive bodrd of the union held a meeting Sunday morning, the object of which was to map ont a course for the future. After a lengthy discussion it was decided to send out "revivalists" to all important sections of the west. Six agitators hud been sent out Saturday and it was decided to augment' this number. "The names of those sent out Saturday Will not be given out," said President Debs to a repot tor, "for fear of their being arrested for inciting a strike." It was learned elsewhere, however, that Director Kent was sent to St. Louis to rally the forces there. Hogan was sent out over tlir- Northern Pacific to stir up the employes of that company, and Goodwin was sent over the Northwestern to use his influence with the employes of that railway system and If possible induce (hem to go ont. These delegates are all members of the executive board of the union. Other emissaries were sent ont to work with the employes of the many lines entering this city. After this meeting adjourned an enthusiastic meeting was held in Uhlich's hall, President Debs presiding. He made a rousing speech, reminding one of the early days of the strike. CalU Arthur a Scab Jobber. . "The strike," said he, "is now—right now—more prosperous and more encouraging than ever before. We can and must win. The men who have none back to work will again come back to us aud victory is ours. Grand Chief Arthur, of the engineers, is a scab jobber and will go down in history as a traitor to organized labor. He instructs his men to Work with scabs and tells them that scabbing is honorable. He is a tool m the hands of the general managers. The strike is weaker in Chicago than elsewhere," continued Debs, "but it will grow stronger, just as in the west it ia growing stronger every hour." Fifteen meetings were held in different parts of the city during the afternoon and evening, several of which were addressed by Debs. Mr. Debs said that several of his com- mittoemen had reported to him that the- Bock Island, Lake Shore, Eastern Illinois, Grand Trunk and Western Indiana men will all be out again. Nothing, could be learned outside to verify this assertion, however. President Dobs visited the stockyards and addressed a crowd of strikers, who have for the most part failed to secure their positions. He urged them to continue the strike, which he declared was never nearer to a victory than now. Th» this city. The secretary and his sons, Jay and Paul, will leave for Europe in August.

U. men agreed to stand by Debs, but at the tame time expressed themselves violently against the men who have taken their places. The switchmen and enginemen were especially loud Jn their protest* against'a surrender. The butchers also kad bitter words, all these men having their jobs filled the day before by nonunion and imported men. The opinion was expressed loudly that the war waa only begun. During the day the district was plastered and covered with* bills and posters reading as follows: "Executive board of Knifhte of Labor do hereby advise all workmen to keep away from the stock- > yards on Monday at it is the desire of all organised bodies that all honest work- logmen should do so and we further condemn the action of the coopers in returning to work as high handed and selfish, without asking concession for the laborers and that all men found working in tho yards on Monday will forever be branded as enemies of organized labor." Thomas F. Heathcote, one of the leaders of the Pullman strike committee, ad- mite that the strike, so far as the Pullman employee are concerned, is practically over. According to his views the men have been literally starved ont. The differences between employes and employers-he says, i* slight, a mere matter of rent. Mr. Heathcote was somewhat disheartened today as he spoke about the •trike and the prospeota. "The men hen are becoming unman- •geble. It takes all the leaders ean do to keep them m line.

OIXON ON THE STRIKE. •«ys the Nation*! Government Should Own the Knllroads. NEW YORK, July 10.—Rev. Thomas Dixon, jr., who finds a text for each Sunday's sermon in the events of the preceding week, preached in association hall Sunday on the strike. This great uprising of the laboring classes which had cost the country |10,0(W,000, and was likely to cost $5,000,000 more, had its origin in a great injustice perpetrated by somebody. It waa impossible to imagine the laboring classes, after enduring the miseries consequent on the depression of the pajt year, leaving their workshops unless there was an in justice somewhere. Three lessons, however, had been learned by the strike: First—That the railroad managers were utterly incapable to fcaiidfe tire railroads the moment a strike was precipitated. Second—That mob violence and disorder would under no circumstances be tolerated by the American people. Third—That the national government alone has the power to break such a strike and raise the railroad blockade, from which; follows the logical conclusion the national government should own the railroads of the country. The railroads, he said, were built strictly for the accommodation of the public, and neither labor leaders nor railroad managers should have the power nor be permitted to interfere with the public rights. If the national government owned the railroads it would be high treason for anyone to do such a thing. HUGHITT CREATED; A SENSATION. Fr'eildent of the Northwestern Snrprlied a Chicago ConipreijRllon. CHICAGO, July lit.—Qtaite a sensation was created here Sunday in the First Presbyterian church, when Marvin Hughitt, president of the Chicago and Northwestern Railway company, arose and made a vigorous reply to a statement made by Professor Bemis in his ad> dress on the strike and its lesson. Professor Bemis had said in'part if the'rail- roads expect their men to>be lawabiding they must set the example. '.'I do not attempt to justify the strikers," said he, "in their boycott of railroads, but railroads themselves not long ago placed an offending railroad under the ban and refused to honor tickets or transport freight of that road. Such boycotts are no more to be justified than those of the striken. Let there be some equality in these things." At this point, much to the surprise of the congregation, Mr. Hughitt left his teat and took a stand immediately ia front of Professor Bemis. As soon as the last words of the benediction bad been uttered, he made a vigorous reply to the professor's statement and demanded an instance of a boycott instituted by the railroads. Mr. Bemis replied instances were only too numerous where railroads had associated together and refused to honor tickets or transport freight over some offending line. "But that is not a boycott," said Mr. Hngbltt. Professor Berafs replied that if it was not a boycott he was willing to let the matter rest. After a few further remarks by Mr. Hughitt the matter was dropped. A. R. U. 18 NOT BANKRUPT. FlgBrei That Show It In OooeV Shape Financially. CHICAGO, July 10,—There it absolutely no truth in the statement that the A. B. U. i« bankrupt, and from present indications there is no probability of such a thing occurring. Instead the organisa- tion is in a flourishing condition financially. A prominent officer of the A. B. U. made an estimate of the running expenses of the office forces at $100 a week.. The largest telegraph bill for one day was $ftl>0, and the association has been accumulating money for over a year. For tho mouth of June the receipts at headquarters for dues alone were over" $10,000. One day's receipts for dues this month footed up nearly $1,090. As the local lodges cover the incidental expenses, and the general assessment to oomiiig in at tho rate of $5,000 a week, the officers of tho order say that they are in u better condition financially than ever to proceed with the strike.
