A VEGETABLE GREENHOU3B. • flan Dcflcrltiud ami Illustrated—Temperature Required Vot Different Vegetables. In building n greenhouse for growing vegetables a throe-quarter span is, in tho opinion of some builders', the boat, although good results afe obtained in the even span. Most growers agree that the wider the house the more they can get Out of it. For a house 60 feet long, K 20' N O OFFICE. J5 , 1 O H 0-i 1U u. tO tn PLAN FOlt VKOETABLB GREENHOUSE, running oast mid west, 20 feet would be a good vridtli and could be built as per the following sketch from American Gardening: If yon anticipate building in the future anothen house parallel with the first one, it will be necessary to have them separated by a few feat; otherwise one will interfere with the other. If it was not intended to build another house on the north, the writer describing the plan here illustrated suggests placing the potting house there and thinks it would be much better to have it built so. Thcu an additional house can be added to tho south connecting the two by a narrow passage. The reason for placing the potting shod on the north is to prevent any shade that wonld be present if it was built either on the east or west ends of tho greenhouse, i The heating pipes should be the same as for an ordinary greenhouse.

He says: These should be selected when 8 months old in enmtnet and 4 months and upward in winter. Birds of a feather they must bo— i. e., having been reared together— lest iu the coop they disagree. Ground oats mixed with milk, in a moderately liquid state, will fatten thein in a fortnight. Do not for* got tho fresh water or the turf, which, like the occasional supply of sand and gravel, may be placed on a ledge or in a trough in front of the coop. Near tho border the birds should have a bar on •which they may perch while feeding. The coops, especially during tho cramming process, must be covered with matting or sacks and under shelter. Mutton fat, chopped fine and boiled with the milk, will bo a good ingredient with tho ground oats or buckwheat, and the food is -then administered in small doses or "crams," which -are helped down to the crop. This process is repeated morning and evening. Tho danger of the fowl becoming crop bound may be obviated on tho recurrence of tho second mealtime by forcing some warm gruel or warm water down the gullet and then softening what remains in tho crop. The bird, after digestion is complete, may then be fed as before. About throe weeks of this treatment would suffice, and the bird should be made to fast for at loast 13 hours before it is killed. It is better and easier tojluok a fowl when it is still warm, and 'this is also an additional guarantee of freshness. Wheat iu Feed For Cowg. The lost quarterly report of the Kansas state board of agriculture is largely devoted to the subject of feeding wheat to farm animals. Reports from many farmers from different sections of the state are all to the same general effect as relates to feeding wheat for milk. Wheat is pronounced by them ahaost without exception to be a very superior feed, from 10 to 50 per cent better than corn and better in mixtures than when fed alone, w might be expected. The yield of hay is estimated in the government crop report at 1. 15 tons per acre against 1.B2 tons in 1898. THE DECEMBER "CROP REPORT. AD Increase In Winter Wheat Compared With Aren Harvested ThU Tear. CHICAGO, Dec. 11.— The December crop report as given by The Prairie Farmer says that further investigation confirms the estimate mode last month of 8 per cent increase i n winter wheat compared with the area harvested this year. The condition of the growing pp averages 01.2, or about two pointa lowef than a year ago. The crop was planted under unfavorable conditions, « large part of the arna Buffered from drouth during September and October and the plant is not well tooted, atooling poorly and thin on tht ground. If hard freezing weather is deferred and there ore good rains the deficiencies noted may be corrected, but the general stamina of the plant is less satisfactory than a year ago.
