There Are Two Varieties of This Breed, the Hindi aiid the White. The Laugshan fowl appeals not ouly to the practical farmer, but to the fancier as well. Two varieties of the breed nre now quite well disseminated throughout the United States — the black and white—though the black Laugshau is much the more popular and BLACK LANOSHANS. more commonly seen. To reach standard weights cocks of this breed should reach 9^ pounds, cockerels eight, hens seven and pullets six pounds. These weights place them in the rank midway between the lightest and heaviest of our breeds of poultry. The plumage of the black Laugshana is of a uniform glossy black. In appearance they somewhat resemble the Cochin. Their flesh is white, and they have a very thin white skin. Their meat is fine grained, rich and juicy. The bones of the Langshans are very small. The breast ia long and deep, giving an abundance of the white breast meat. The Laugshan ia hardy. California has the honor of originating and breeding, iu its purity, the 'white Langshan fowl. When first hatched, the chicks are a bluish white on the back, with throat and breast white and canary. When fully matured, the plumage is pure spotless white, legs bluish slate, with vivid pink showing through. The feet are bright pink, STRAW ON THE FARM. THE OLD RELIABLE PIONEER" MEAT MAKKBT K. MIT JA. J*rof>H*«r. rim, OAMB VM rne« p»t« *. BBITlfilt, * QAIMQU*. 1 It Is Worth More to ttoe »t Bone Than ft Is to Sell. Straw is worth more to any fanner to use at home than it is to sell. The cost of baling is $1.50 per ton, besides boarding the four men aud two teams of the pressers. Add to this $1 per ton for hauling to market, and the amount reaches close to $8 per ton. Good bright wheat or oat straw sells at from $8 to f 4 a ton, seldom reaching the latter figure. Where the profit conies in is not clear, yet there are large numbers of farmers who sell all the straw they can possibly spare every year, actually depriving their stock of bedding to do so. Thus writes a Michigan correspondent of American Agriculturist, the authority for the folidwiiig: • Straw is not of great mannrial value in itself, yet furnished freely to stock in the form of bedding, or where they can tread it into the litter of a barnyard, it acids greatly to the value of the manure by absorbing the liquids and holding the gases, to say nothing of the added comfort to man and beast obliged to travel over it. But there is another point. Ou heavy soil nothing surpasses straw to lighten and loosen it. Spread the straw and plow it under, and if it does not plow under scatter it in the furrow for the next furrow slice to cover. If this plan is followed, it will not be mauy years before a change may be observed in the character of the soil. It will be more friable as well as more fertile. It is a practice to burn the straw. Give the cattle, horses or sheep access to a stack of straw through the winter, and there will not be much of it left in the spring. Oat and barley straw make good feed for stock given in connection with grain. When hay is high priced, it would be wise to utilize a portion of the straw in this way. Another profitable use for straw in many instances is in keeping out the cold from the stables. If there is a place where the wind whistles, nail boards to the inside of the studding, beginning at the bottom, and fill the space between that and the outside with straw. It will soon pay for the expenditure in tho improved condition of the stock. This is especially true of cows in milk. Nothing more quickly shrinks tho flow of milk than cold. In finding methods to dispose of surplus straw do not forgot the hogpen. No animal more eujoys a good dry bed than a hog. Feed tho straw, work it into the manure pile, tread it underfoot in the barnyard, plow it underground, dispose of it as a mulch around trees, berry bushes or grapevines, but never sell straw off the farm. LEAVING THE CAPITAL. Many Senators Are Absent When the Roll Is Called. BILLS ON THE CALENDAR, PAIR WHITE LANOSHANS. the combs, ear lobes and wattles vivid red. The combination of colors is remarkably handsome. In their general characteristics they are identical with the black Langshaus. A mottled and a bine variety of Langshans are also bred in a few quarters, the former having been undoubtedly formed by crossing the black and white and likely to revert to one side or the other. Fanciers place particular stress in breeding Langshans upon securing "style" in the carriage of the birds, a high station and great length of tail. The Laugshan matures more rapidly than the Cochin, has a finer quality of flesh and is more prolific in egg production, Clipping the Wings of Queens. "Do you clip your queeus' wings? What are the advantages or disadvantages of the practice?" The foregoing queries were answered by a number of apiarists through the columns of The American Bee Journal. Their replies made it appear that the beekeepers are about equally divided on the subject. Among those who did not clip the wings were C. H. Dibborn and J. E. Pond, who use drone and queen traps. E. Secor, who had tried it, summed up the subject of advantages — first, ago of the queen more certainly known; second, swarm more easily hived. The disadvantages—first, trouble to hunt aud clip. Among the advocates for clipping was R. L. Taylor, w'ho said: The advantages are that Hwaruas are managed with much less* care and labor, and by no chance can any swarms elope with a clipped queen. There are no disadvantages, except the slight labor of clipping them. C. C. Miller said that he liked to have his queens marked so they oau't be changed without 1m knowing it. A clipped queen can't tly off with u swavni, uud that may save the swarm from going off. 8. I. Freeboru said that the greatest advantage, aud it is a big one, is that it wave* Jot* of absconding swarms, especially in out apiaries, where they are not closely watched.

The plan of the farmers who use large quantities of fertilizers is to put all tho manure on the corn, or, if they do not grow corn, on some crop that ha( similar feeding habits and is planted ou sod. The time for applying the manure is often just after the meadows are cut and harvesting is over. This is a much more convenient time than in spring, when all work is pressing, and the work is done more easily, because the ground is not soft or muddy. On level ground it is not probable that much, if any, of the value of the manure is wasted by this summer application. This manure and sod should provide ample food for a heavy corn crop. After that will come potatoes, with a heavy dressing of for- tilizer, this crop to be followed by small grain and grass, says Rural Now Yorker. A Cheup Filter. A filter within the roach of all is one contrived with two casks. Fill tho one into which is inserted tho spout or inflow of water about half full of alternate layers of gravel, charcoal and pebbles—a layer of gravel first, next six inches of charcoal, then pebbles, then riLTBKINO WATCH. charcoal again, then a few larger stone*. From the bottom of this cask to the bottom of the next have a connection of thiu gas pipe, which will rise iu an elbow to about half way up tho depth of the second cask. The cask is filled with gravel and charcoal, the wtuio as the first. Thus tho water is conveyed from tho first cask to about half way up the second cask, and us it falls by it» gravity undergoes ft sucond filtering. At tho bottom of thiu cask tho water, now twice filtered, is drawn off for UHO. Water from a pump, wluither from a well, river or tank, may Iw as readily filtered iu thin manner us rainwater.

Hen«to» Llndiny and Atllsnn n*Te Sni-ecltei That Arty Not Yet Delivered. Clmlriunn Wilson's Early neturn—Min- ister flipper Culls on Gresham—President Cleveland Declines to Tnllt. WASHINGTON, Aug. 21.—For IB or 2U minutes Monday the business of the senate was suspended while the sergeant-at- arms was sent in search of an actual quorum, only 26 senators having voted on a nonpolitical motion, thus showing that congress is slowly disintegrating. Th« four supplemental tariff bills were all reported from the finance committee and sent to the calendar. Several bills were passed, among them the hill for the speedy prosecution of the claim of the United States against the estate of the late Leland Stanford. At 1:40 p. m. the senate adjurned until Wednesday, aftci an executive session lasting 20 minutes. The Republicans say there will be no more business of importance transacted in the senate this session, except, per- hapf, the passing of the bill correcting the alcohol schedule. Senator Lindsay (Ky.) was ready to make a speech. The Kentucky senator desires to defend the action of the senate finance committee and the Democratic senators who supported them. It is also understood Senator Allison (Ia.) was ready to make a speech of some length oil the present status of the tariff legislation. It is possible both of these speeches will be made by the courtesy of the senate, although the Republicans said that no speeches would be made. Some of the Democrats assert, however, that if any attempt is made to prevent the speeches on the Democratic side a quorum of the senate will be recalled nndei duress by the sergeant-at-arrns. On the Republican side it is claimed the tariff debate, as well as the tariff legislation, is closed. This may lead to some ugly fueling if insisted upon. Minister Tapper Culls on Gresham. WASHINGTON, Aug. 21.-—Sir Julian Pauucefote, the British ambassador, accompanied by Charles Tupper,tho Canadian minister of fisheries, called at the state department and had an interview with Secretary Gresham, respecting the settlement of the claims of the owners of the British Columbian vessels seized by United States navy and revenue marine vessels for sealing in Bering sea. These claims probably will be adjusted by a commission and Mr. Tupper's visit to Washington is to afford the British ambassador ihe information necessary foi the prosecution of the negotiations. Secretary Greshara was at the senate urging that before adjournment some action be taken looking to the settlement of these claims. The general opinion was, however, that it was too late this session. Chairman Wilson's Enrly Return. WASHINGTON, Aug. 21. — Chairman Wilson reached Washington from Long Branch Monday evening. His early return was connected with rumors that President Cleveland would come to Washington at once and that some action on the tariff bill was to be expected. Mr. Wilson denies the statement, but gays he looks for the president's rcttirn on Thursday. Finding so many senators away from tho city, he does not look for any further legislation this session. President Uenllnvi to Talk. BUZZARDS BAY, Muss., Aug. 21.— President Cleveland's health continues to improve and rumors tnat his ailment is more serious than malarial fever is scouted by tho doctor. The president declines to say anything about public matters. Infringing on PatenU, KANSAS CITY, Aug. 2-1.—The Kan** City Hay Press company has sued Gen eral H. F.
