OABROUU U The Latcit Device Is a Cnnvnn tlbeck Dam of Triangular Form. Thoro is n gradual advancement in Irrigation science in tho far west. The latest device is a canvas or duck check dani cut in tho triangular form and calculated tb fit any irrigation ditch without nny delay or unnecessary use of the shovel. The device is very simple and was invented for free use by Professor Huntley of the Arkansas valley experiment station, in Colorado. A piece of canvas 4 feet square will make two aprons. To a piece of scanting or two strips of board 8 feet long nail the cloth, first having hemmed in a piece of rope under the dependent edges and passing through a ring at the ower point This rope is then passed hrough two holes in the beam, aud thus ecnrely fastened.

Simple Methods of Supplying the Folrfe With Glenn Water and Food. The V shaped trough B, innde from ordinary fence boards, shows a simple arrangement for supplying the poultry regularly with pure water. It may be made of any desired length, bnt 18 inches is sufficient. In this, r.« one end, invert a five gallon can or jng, A, which has been previously filled with pure water. To keep it erect drive two stakes at the end of the trough and lean the A CHECK DAM OF EAST CONSTRUCTION. wagon, the outfit is complete. Take the pron to a point on the ditoh or lateral where a check is desired, thrust the rod hrough the ring and into the bottom of be ditch with the handle sloping somewhat up stream, drop the projecting lids of the beam on the banks ot the itch, and the job is complete. The man- ler in which this check dam diverts the water will surprise the man who tries it. Professor Huntley's device, original- y sketched by the Colorado Field and 'arm, can hardly fail to interest many eaders, for there is no abatement in the rrigation boom. The irrigation idea is 10 longer confined to the southwest, igriculturists everywhere who practice ntensive farming recognize the impor- ance of irrigation, which practically laces the control of crops in man's tands. Hints About Vinegar. The following is gleaned from The '(Tew England Homestead: Vinegar will clear itself by working. ,ike humanity, exercise is necessary to icalth, and impurities are thrown off roin vinegar by the process of fermen- ation. For -cider vinegar add new or me-year-old cider oocasionally. For ither vinegar add sweetened water. The elt strainer is just the thing to take iut all floating impurities from any iquid. Maple sugar makers use it to sleanse maple sirup, leaving it very clear, and no settlings will deposit after ita use. I use a felt strainer constantly to itrain vinegar for shipment. Feeding riuegar is essential to its life and vigor. After racking off a lot of vinegar two or three years since I had a large tank 'ull of thick settlings—regular mnd. This seemed good only to throw away, >ut after standing several months it worked itsolf clcav, and about half of it was splendid vinegar. Tho mixture of ;ho dregs of many casks made tho work- ug capital. To make good cider vinegar use good stock from ripe apples, feed occasionally or often with same or newer cider and finish with felt strainer to remove all floating impurities. Docs tho Furin Need Potash? Do you notice that potash is tho hardest element for a farmer back from the coast to secure? The greater part of our potash used for fertilizing purposes jomes from Germany, and farmers in tho interior, unless they can obtain wood ashes, must pay the increase of freight and transportation. They cannot understand why they can obtain bono aud blood for a very reasonable rate, but must pay a much greater price for fertilizers containing potash when the eastern experiment stations all quote it at a very low rate. At the seaboard bone uud blood arc higher and potash lower than in tho west, and for the same reason—viz, the cost of transportation—explains Rural New Yorker, which also says that a great many of the fertilizer trials at tho west are of little value because tho farmer who made them left out the potash almost entirely. This is a great mistake. Blood and bone alone will not answer on farms that have been cropped with grain for many years. The KufulBU Thistle. The United States senate has inserted in the agricultural appropriation bill an itom of $1,000,000 "for the destruction of thu lliKHiim cactus, to bo apportioned by the secretory of agriculture among tho several states infested, said apportionment to be made in accordance with tho necessities of the case, to be ascertained by the secretary and to Ifo paid to the governor of each of said states upou his executing ou obligation ou behalf of his etuto that the Hunt HO paid shall l>o faithfully applied iu connection with any BUW which uiay be raised for that purpose in hi* Htuto lor the destruction of said cactus." lied Ciiilar* Vm Windbreak* Red oudurs niuko flue windbreaks iu many pluuus in the wont where piuos ouimot liu successfully raised.

As soon as the water is lowered in the trough below the opening in tho top of the can a little air is admitted, and water flows out to take the place of that consumed. By this means water can be kept pure and wholesome, aud if the vessel be made of earthenware and placed in the shade it will keep cool for a long time. The New England Homestead, which furnishes the foregoing device, also suggests some feeding arrangements. One is made of a peach basket having about 12 slats, 'Cut each slat as shown in the cut, so as to permit each fowl to thrust its head between without ' discomfort. Fasten this onto » cheesebox cover or other suitable foundation, taking care to do this so it can be opened. Put in the feed. This arrangement is especially desirable for soft feed; also for protecting drinking water. Another device suggested is one for feeding bran in a dry state to fowls or young chicks. Take a flowerpot, cut a piece out of the top on each side 4 inches long and 1 Ji inches deep, turn it FEEDING DEVICES FOR FOWLS. bottom np and. break a hole in it large enough to pour the bran in. Get a cheesebox lid about four inches larger in diameter than the top of the pot, set the pot in it, bottom up, pour in the bran, and you will have a self feeder and no waste. Mule Breeding. The disorganized state of the horse market has led to considerable attention being paid of late to mule raising. The general impression that a mule is worth less than a horse is not borne out by statistics, the recent census showing that, on the contrary, the mule averages $7 more than its rival. There would appear to be money in mule raising at present. Not only is there a steady market for them in the south and west, where they are highly valued—the state of Texas alone having over 200,0,00— bnt there is also an increasing demand for good mules for export, which has given an impetus to tho trade. The size of tho mule to raise for use in tho west and south is from 14>|J to 16 hands in height. In some sections great care has been exercised in importing and breeding animals of fine quality, the result being a superior product. Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas are in the van in this respect. Third Irrigation Congron, Irrigation commissions in 17 states and territories created by the last irrigation congress will render reports to the third national irrigation congress at Denver, beginning Sept. 8, 1804, and continuing one week. Upon these studies of existing conditions and future needs in all parts of the arid region it is proposed to construct a national policy and code of local laws to be submitted to federal congress and the legislatures of tho western states. ;5R.

Says Hie Company tta» >>«* «• Dividends Kegularly of *2,800,000 Closely QneRtloned by Judge Worthing. ton and Commissioner Xernan— Vice President Wlckes on the Sta.nd. CHICAGO, Aug. 28.— George M. Pull' man was before the labor commission for nearly three hours Monday afternoon, Vice President Wickes occupied twc hours and will appear again. At tht outset of his testimony Mr. Pullman made a careful preliminary statement ot his position toward the commission and defining the motives which had, moved the company to establish its manufac' taring plant and homes for workingtnen as it had. In reply to queries by Chairman Wright, Mr. Pullman told of the cqntracts for work undertaken by the company at a loss in order that the men might be kept at work. He said: "Up to the time of the strike, we had lost more than $50,000 in pursuing thi policy. -I explained this personally t* the men when they were having their conference with Mr. Wickes." Here Mr, Kernan asked: "Were the books shown to the men?" "No, they were not because the men did not apply to see them and the strikt came Friday." "There were other grievances, were they not?" "There were, but Mr. Wickes and Mr. Brown had assured the men they would take them up and remedy them where- ever there was just cause for complaint.'' Turning the subject Judge Worthington brought out the fact that the company's original stock of f l.OOO.OOlnn 1867 had increased to 136,000,000; that the company had paid dividends of 12 pel cent during the first two years of its organization, 9^ during the next two years and 8 per cent annually since and at the same time had accumulated a surplus accounting to $2(1,00(1,000. Referring to the stock of the company, Mr. Pullman said it represented actual cash paid by the stockholders as the capital was needed and the capital stock was increased for the legitimate business of the company. "Now, Mr. Pullman," said Commissioner Worthington, "taking the whole year through, has the Pullman company made or lost money?" "It has made money," was the answer. "Have you paid your regular dividends?" "Yes, sir; 8 per cent." "That is something like $9,8011,000 you have paid out in dividends for the year?" "Yes, but that includes the latter part of the World's fair season, which was exceptional." "Let me ask you, Mr. Pullman, whether you do not think a company that pays dividends of $3,800,000 could not afford to share the losses of its em- ployes who have worked for it so long?" "The manufacturing business is separate from the business of the sleeping car company. I see no reason why I should take the profits of the 4,300 stockholders in the Pullman Sleeping Oar company and pay men a higher rate ot wages than was paid in other parts of the country for the same work." "Has the Pullman company, during the years of its prosperity, ever advanced the wages of its employes voiuntarilyf ' "I do not know as to that. It has always sought to pay fair wages." Judge Worthington Wanted to know "wherein it was wrong to take tht money of the stockholders and pa; higher wages when the management was ready to take, contracts at a loss, 01 take the stockholders' money to keep the plant going. Mr. Pullman says the ex- cution of the contracts at a loss was bet ter for the plant than to let it lie idle." "So," interrupted Mr. Kernan, "you had that in view as well as the employ ment of the men. You did not want tc stop the plant because you knew thai would be a loss to stockholders and you did not want to scatter your men because you knew it would be difficult tc get a force together that would do economical work?" "Yes." "Was your salary reduced, Mr. Pullman?" The witness replied it had not been. "Nor the salaries of superintendents or foremen?" "No." "Why?" Mr. Pullman said it wa* not good policy to reduce the salaries of high officials because men of their calibre were not easily replaced. Mr. Pullman was then excused and Vice President Wiokes called. Ho rehearsed the history of the strike and the part bo played in it. Mr. Wiokes' evidence was mainly corroborative of the statements made by Mr. Pullman. DULL, aUT, SEPI. 8. me WORLD'S LAROesT.
