One of Our Oldest Breeds Mid a fiue 111** trtktlon of What Can Be Done by S?lcrHnn. The American Dominique is thfl old- Mt of strictly American breeds. It is a good example of what can be done by selection with a definite end in View. Ita pedigree terminates, as one traces it back, in the common "hawk colored" barnyard fowl. In its early history BBBASTIAN WALZ •j* Boots and Shoes. U«£S' MO CENTS' MHEI AB. Kate * fMirtkw IA THE OLD RELIABLE ROSE COMBBD DOMunQtra COCK. Dominiqnes had both single and combs, and it is altogether probable that the single combed birds were one of the progenitors of the,Barred Plymouth Rook, though that excellent breed doubtless had a multiple origin. But finally the rose combed birds supplanted the single combed ones, just as the pea combed Brahmas supplanted those with a single comb. By constantly selecting rose combed fowls with a barred plnm- age and those that had the largest size, the Dominique gradually shaped itself into a distinctive breed. No one knows, or if he does he maintains a mysterious silence, who has the honor of originating this breed. It seems to have been like Topsy and just "growed." The Dominique has an excellent shape. It is not like that of the Plymouth Rook, but is longer in body and fuller in tail and suggests both the Dorking and the Hamburg. Moiit persons are apt to be careless observers, and even some who pose as experts seem to be ignorant of the true type of a Dominique. Hence we sometimes see birds winning prizes that are In reality more like Plymouth Rooks than Domlniqnes and perhaps were produced by crossing tha two breeds. Their shape is an admirable one for a general purpose fowl, as it indicates good laying qualities, with table properties of no mean order, and, in fact, the Dominique is an excellent layer and makes really good poultry. To a fancier tho Dominique need* much improvement. The comb is not so neat as he could wish, though this feature has greatly improved in the past ten years. The plumage, however, is tha most defective point in the fowl. It is described in The American Standard of Perfection in precisely the same words as are used in describing the plumage of the Barred Plymouth Rook. It ought to be just like that of the Barred Plymouth Book, but it is not The hens are too dark and have a "muddy" look. The beauty of a barred plumage consists in having the alternate black and white bars clearly defined and stand out distinctly upon the fowls. This can be attained only by having the' light ban wider thau the dark ones, and having the latter narrow. To a man who keeps fowls for profit these matters are of little moment, arid a farmer, unless he also be a fancier, as some farmers are, will not be deterred from keeping Doml niques because of the lack of these nice points. The Dominique is not a very popular fowl, despite its great value as a praoti oal, everyday, useful breed. This want of popularity, says as high authority as H. 8. Baboook in The American Agri oulturist, is probably due to two things —first, the defects which have been indicated and .which breeders havo nog i lected to remedy, and,second, the smaller f size of the fowl compared with that of ltd newest rival, tho Barred Plymouth Rook. Americans like Jorge fowls. Even if it could be demonstrated that there was just as much profit in raising a small fowl as in raising a large one, the large fowl would have the greater popularity. Yet we must not forget that size is a quality that can be obtained. The American Dominique in a much larger fowl than were ite ancestors, aud one breeder informs me that bis fowls are constantly increasing in sine. A BMIW!

CORN SMUT. tl tt tt«t M Aetlve Poison to Cattle Wfcea fed Kit Moderate Quantities* I'D settle the question as to Whether corn smut li as poisonous as supposed, Professor Henry made an experiment some years hgo, in which the two oow» used In the experiment were each fed five ponnds of bran morning and night, What meadow hay they wished to eat and a peek of ear com chopped into email pieces. In addition to thig ration, eotne corn smut was fed, raited with the bfan, and half morning and night, beginning with six ounces and increasing the quantity to 64 ounce* in 13 days, in case of one cow, and to 82 ounces in 11 days in case of the other. One of these animals refused to eat all the bran and smut mixture, leaving about two-thirds of it, and after awhile she grew BO indifferent that she Would scarcely taste it and was turned out with the rest of the herd as smut proof. The other cow ate the entire ration and seemed to be striving finely when suddenly a change oatne, and she refused the usual food and in a few days died. Her symptoms during sickness were: Loss of use of limbs; head thrown forward so as to bring the nose on a line with the back; hard breathing and groaning; spasmodic contraction of the body; boras and legs oold, the latter stretched qnt stiffly, and hoofs .rattling when shivering. It seemed thai the im- paotion found in the third stomach was the consequence rather than a cause and would not of itself have produced death BO suddenly. • Professor Oamgee, under the direction of the department of agriculture, found that smut if eaten when wet produced no ill effects, when fed dry caused the animal to lose flesh. It is evident, says Professor Henry, that smut is not an active poison in moderate quantities, and it seems that the principal danger from this cause lies In turning the cattle into stock fields, Where they gorge themselves with dry corn fodder and smut. Professor Gatngee recommends some purgative for animals sick from this cause, as epsom salts or a pound of linseed oil for a grown animal, and to induce the animal to drink water as soon as possible. A writer in The Prairie Farmer has noticed very frequently that upon first turning cattle into the stock field, if they are driven to the watering place at least three times a day, no trouble ever arises'from eating from Bmut. Orlnuon Cloven So much attention has of late been attracted to this valuable plant that the accurate representation of it here reproduced from The Country Gentleman can hardly fail to interest many readers. Crimson clover bos already spread well throughout Pennsylvania, Dela- CBIM80N OLOVEB. ware, Maryland and Virginia, and can be grown over a very large extent of territory, including all the southern, central, western and probably the northern states. Its existence as far north aa Saratoga county was reported on June 14 last by a writer who first noticed it in 1801, "since which time it has spread rapidly, even in poor soil." In fact, it is hard to say where it will! not grow and thrive, and happy are the regions which possess it I Co.* of Wheat Froaoctlon. The department of agriculture has published estimates of the cost pur acre of raising wheat, based upon state- wont* made by 95,000 western farmer* and 400 department experts. The average cost for the entire region covered IB given at $1 1. 00 and for Wisconsin alone 112.08. Rout is placed ut f 8 per acre and constitutes the largest single item of expense.

On the platform besides the secretaries sat Miss Francis Willard, the president; Mother Thompson, Mother Stewart, Mrs. Helen M. Barker, treasurer of the union, and others. Huge bouquets of chrysthemums graced the platform. Reports of superintendent* ware taken up under the evangelistic department, the general topic being "What the different departments grouped under the head' of evangelistic are doing to save from the sin of intemperance and what results can each report as contributing to the over* throw of the liquor traffic and the establishment of God's kingdom?" Miss (Jreenwood of Brooklyn wts the first superintendent to report on evangelistic work. She told of the distribn- tion of evangelistic literature; of arrange- mente for simultaneous prayer meetings in different localities. She recommended a return to the system of holding an hour of prayer, from 11 to 18 o'clock in the morning, at national conventions. Her report was adopted. Mrs. Minnie English of Illinois made a very favorable report concerning the work among miners. Mrs. Mary F. Lovell of Manacbutettt reported for the department of mercy ana spoke against the use of birds for the adornment of ladiM* bate; against tMpjf of/wal* for UM In cloak*, and urged net fc&uteft to look into .what (he tennei the ttdrroM 0* tbe slaughter bouse.

Rev. Mary Wood Allen next responded tor the purity department. Bhe complained of a lack of funds to carry out the work of the department, but otherwise offered an encouraging report, Mm. 0. M. Woodward reported for work among railroad men. Barring the interruption caused by tbe big strike the work had been very encouraging. Uiw Oreenwood of Brooklyn was granted an extension of time in which to continue ber report. The noon hour prayer meeting wa» held under the direction of Mrs, R. V. Trogo.
