Does some farmer want to make a good' stable floor out of cobblestones and cement? If so, he has but to observe the following directions from The Farm Journal, which says: Let him dig out the earth 18 inches deep and fill in with the stones to within six inches of the surface where he would have his horse's feet. Next let him ram down hard three inches of concrete made of cement 1 part—Portland cement preferred—clean, sharp sand 8 parts and screened gravel 6 parts. Wet the gravel well and mix in the sand and cement thoroughly. The mass must be sprinkled until it will retain any shape it is pressed into. The surface qpat la an inch thick, put on before the first coat of concrete sets. It is made of 3 parts sharp sand and 1 part cement. This is spread smoothly and must note be disturbed till the entire floor is set hard, like a block of granite. ' To induce it to dry slowly and so prevent cracking it may be covered with a thin layer of straw and sprinkled ooca- FEEDING CORN FODDER, A STONE AKD CEMENT FLOOR. • elonally. • If the hardening process take two or three weeks, so much the better. The whole surface must slope gently from the manger, say at the rate of one inch to three feet. This will carry the urine back BO the horse will not get soiled nor be otherwise injured by it, as, for instance, the injury to his eyes from the ammonia it often generates. But the horse must not stand on this concrete, else his feet will spoil it as he stamps at flies. A plank rack must cover it for a stamping surface. This is made of 2 inch stmff, sawed 4 inches wide and laid three-quarters of an inch apart'on cleats. The rear cleat should be enough thicker than the front one to level up tbe floor. A level floor is necessary for the health of the horse's feet. Filth will collect between the slats of the floor and must be cleaned out daily by the use of an iron or hook as thick us the spaces between the planks. The square and spirit level will be needed ( to make the floor a good one. It will! gave bedding aud run off the urine into the manure vault or sewer. A bare cobble floor is not a satisfactory one for the'horse, because so rough, hard /tnd uneven; for the owner, because so hard on tho horse's feet' and so difficult to keep clean. In the engraving showing the stone and cement floor, 1 represents the space filled with cobbles, 2 the grouting of gravel and cement, 3 the inch of fine surface, 4 the thick rear cleat, 5 plank slats lor the horse's feet. The foundation is placed thus deeply to avoid the action of frost. Evaporated Fruit*. The evaporation of fruit is one of the many industries that have grown so enormously in tho past few years. Having its beginning on tyie Delaware peninsula, it has gradually extended over tho large fruit belt between the Atlantic and the Pacific. Large evaporators must be located where an abundance of fruit can be secured at a reasonable price. Unless this is done the business cannot be made successful. But large evaporators mean acquired business skill in this particular pursuit Tho party in charge must understand it thoroughly, keep posted in evoiy detail and be a oloso observer of all markets. A correspondent of Tho Country Gentleman nays: . Were I to instruct a party just going into business, I would say buy the best machinery attainable. If a largo factory, uso power machinery.' It saves time, help and prevents one of the many expensive' outlets that arise in this particular business. From 5 to 7 ]:punds of evaporated fruit can bo made from 60 pounds of choice apples. Raspberries will make about 10 pounds per bushel. The question, Shall I put up an evaporator then? should bo well weighed and calculated. Several important and necessary points must be considered. Is the locality suitable? Can fruit be purchased at a price to make it profitable? Can help be readily scoured? With those' questions answered iu the affirmative, it is safe to proceed, as you will always be sure of a market for evaporated fruits. A Cheap Wagon Juok, For a wagon jack I never uso a bos, bench or my wife's dasher churn, writes a New England Homestead oorrspond- out, who describes what he does use. It is uu easily and cheaply made wagon Jack. He says; Use throo-cjunrtor inch oak lumber and 0>£ inch bolts. Bevel tho edges, especial • ly of the handle.

It is the general practice iff nearly all the great corn growing states after husking or snapping the cem to turn the Stock ilito the fields to forage from the cornstalks. There is no donbt by this method of feeding .that au immense quantity of food material is wasted, partly b.r the large quantity of stalks which remain uneaten and partly by the destruction of nutritive matter through rain and frost. Every day of exposure tends to decrease the value of the- fodder by destroying the sugar and other soluble parts which give to the plant its flavor and palatability. One great reason why the value of Well cured cornstalks from which tho ears have been husked for feeding purposes has not been more generally recognized is that the stalks are bulky, aud until the advent of cutting machinery have been difficult to handle; also, explains Prairie Farmer, farmers not understanding how to feed stalks to tho best advantage have .found that there was a large amount of waste. In experiments at the Wisconsin station it was shown that something like 30 per cent of the cornstalks can be saved by cutting them so that the entire stalk will be eaten. In riper corn, fed together with whatever nubbins there were, was-only a waste of 9 per cent with'the uncut fodder. With cornstalks valued at $4 a ton it Was demonstrated that they are worth about |8.20 per ton when out, and it was seen that the advance in value will quickly pay for a good sized cutting inachine. In the winter season farmers, as a rule, have but little to dp with their horses, and these can then be utilized in the cutting of fodder. ' It has been suggested that the larger sized cntt'ihg machines are much more economical loan the hand machine. In other experiments it was- found that by putting .the fodder through a cutter 36 per cent was saved in the first trial and 81 per cent in the second, the' difference in the percentage being due to the variety of corn used: In trial No, 1 the uneaten fodder was 14 per cent of' the total fed, while the gain by cutting was 8(1 per cent. In trial No. 1 the uneaten stalks were 30 per cent of the total fed, while the gain by cutting was 31 per cent. The fodder crop, when turned into butter, gave these results: The average of four trials showed that it required 2,450 pounds of corn fodder, cut fine, together with 750 pounds of bran and 450 pounds of oorhmeal, to make 100 pounds of butter. Ordinarily an acre of fodder corn will yield nboutf 12,600 pounds. Honco we find that we would have enough fodder on an acre of land for about 500 pounds of butter. To go with this fodder 'in producing this 500 pounds of butter we would need 3,750 pounds of bran and 2,850 pounds of oorumeal. Now let our readers take the cost of bran and cornmeal at their respective points, and adding this cost to the fodder fed they can easily determine the value of the fodder. The Minorca*.

The difference between tho white and black Minorca! has been summed up as follows: Blocks —Beak, dark slate color, eyes dark, leg| blaok or very dark slate, plurnugo glossy black.

She bought a home qu Twenty-fourth street, but found the neighborhood" so disreputable that she was not willing to Uriqg op her IHth daughter there. Then she began an onslaught to clean out the block. She nil- orally antagonized other property owners and residents on her square, awl they began to fight her. They -raked over the ashes of her dead past in hopes to find something buried there which would redound to her discredit They named, various individuals wjith whom she had been involved in legal tussles. But Mary Ballade had had two bus- bauds and frankly warned her enemies that she bud Jearued bow to fight She wrote a newspaper letter detailing hei life history minutely and spreading wrf thin with her own fair hands the ashei in which they had hoped to make a find. She laughed them to scorn in a column which shows she could have made hei fortune as a war correspondent in busier days than those piping times of peace. Thus she ' 'jaws" baofc &t her opponents: U Jake Bcheidor, who keeps the ArUdgtor across the way, thinks he con terrify me by bringing up this man Craus, who can tell me tho story of my troubles with Henry Edward Shavpe, IK) In mistaken . fa mo, that IsaU, I boat Craus and broke him, and if bo bud at muali as a wood shed that he could call his own I would break him again.

"Whoat Pod Beef and Pork. The farmers of this country will learn one great lesson from the peculiar con dition of tho groin market. Never be fore in our history was wheat cheaper than corn. The drought and failure oi tho corn crop in many parts of the In will make corn continue* to bo high priced. Tho result has boon in many places that farmers are feeding wheat to their live stock instead of corn. They have found, tlwt it is even a bettor toad for the aniuiuls. Corn fattens without making a large growth of muscle aud bone. Hogs fed on corn exclusively, while very fat, are weak in bogo aud •mall in frame. Tho best pork and beef have boon found to conio from animals fed on wheat. The flavor is superior to that of corn fed meat. A mixture of the two grains together would probably make the ideal food. One live stockman goes so far as to say ho believes the present depression in price is a real godsend to tho farmers, since it will teach thorn tho feeding value of wheat. Ho •bus known of this cereal's being wo aud shipped abroad at such low prices that it wojuld have paid for Uottfcr if fed to the live stock. Tho vordipt is generally in faror of wheat fed meat. Perhaps our Burping Wheat oaii hereafter be always used iu this way, uud that there need never be M glut of this grain again.
