Mr. Miller's tall;: upon the situation yesterday seemed very illtcrest!rip to me. Said lie: ''Thcru in no doubt about it. There is a rual and widespread, improvement in.ffcneral business. I base this assertion upuii tlu: advance which I have noticed in the paper business. I'ossibly you have 'never thought of it iu that [light, but the paper trade is, perhaps, i'thc most sensitive business barometer in existence.

At the present time we find :i greater demand • -for all sorts o.f papev tluiti w« have enjoyed for a year or two, anil the manufacturers and deak'rs .are enabled' "because of that to demand and obtain "belter prices. Wliut \Vn11 Mrr<M-t ThlnlSH. Mr. William Shercr, manager of the S6\v York uloarinfr house, observes daiiy jv business 'barometer, even more sensitive and probably as accurate as that which comes un- •dwthc observation ot''ex-Sena- tor Miller. Mr. Shercv is hope- •ful. In discussing- : the situation said: "There is no great rush, but business "is undoubtedly looking up. Money 'brings. better rates and is in much better tfemacd than it was a year ago, and although, tho banks have not so largo a surplus as they had then, we aro well isatisSed, under tho circumstances, to :ICDOW that tho money is being- used in •business instead of being- hoarded. It seems probable to me that tho present upward, tendency will increase craclu- ully and steadily all summer, and I lasc that expectation principally upon .the fact that I no longer sco any evidence that the people fear g-overnment "bankruptcy. "Tho JN T ew York clearing- house ex- •ohungcs always afford a fairly accurate- indication of tho business situation, and their value so far this year .has been considerably in excess of the -s-olume of transactions during tho first quarter of last year. Though the clearing house figures do not furnish an-absolutely truthful index, still I think they are very significant. Hero, they arc: January, 1S04, $2,105,503,855.7(5; January, 1S55, *3,8D4,G73,414.5T; February, 1S94, $1,734,030,789.93; February, 1S93, *1,S04,444,32G.S9: March, 1SD4, *3,04S,Sll,5ol.lS; March, 1S95,13,340,741,- fll6.04. You see that there has been a rcrv decided increase. The transac- -tions were not so large as in the first Barter of 1S9S, to be sure, the figures then running over three billions a jacinth, but still there is plenty of room rJor encouragement, and from all I can !!<!arn n. similar state of affairs exists in adl parts of the country." , Henrv Clews said among other things: ^Employers are encouraged by the brighter pros- peots for a gradual and almost sure return of prosperity to this c o u ntry. They have in consequence, in numerous ia- st-tuicc*. begTin GE*- vo i u ntarily to , J.VME.S. advance wages, i in itself is substantial evidence of the.ir confidence in tho periarmency of tlic improvement which has already taken place, and in each instance where wng-e's have been advanced a jcrresrxmdinsr mark uu has bC'in .made HUSKY CLEWS. the other day, ho :'ji)B'(Jic^t^' l in"ti^e:.^:tt68e-w;ho-J>aT.e : taken the initiative'in this.direction. I believe," Jlr. Clews continued, "that there will be more railroad buildin? this year than in any one year for some time; not new lines, perhaps, but many new spurs of old lines will be laid, grades will be lowered, lines straightened, etc. This cannot fail to give employment to labor, as well as an impetus to the profitable production of iron and steel. The advance in price and demand of leather goods of every description has already helped that industry. Cotton and woolen goods are finding an increased demand at advancing prices. Business recovery is very perceptible in all directions, and the return of confidence and courage is certainly most comforting. Bad crops of course would make a serious setback, but now that the wheat and corn belts are having copious rains to relieve the prolonged drought in those sections, prospects for crops are good, and, taking everything into consideration, there is "sufliJcnr, cause to believe in there- turn of good times unless there is a serious setback." What the Kullroail Men Say, Mr. II. Walter Webb, of the New York Central railroad, reports a very noticeable increase in local business along the line of rail with which he is connected. "There is a greater local activity," he said to-day, "than there lias been during i.he past eighteen months, and while the aggregate increase is not startlingly largo, it means a great deal. This is especially noticeable in the manufacturing towns. Stations that have been using but two or three cavr, a day arc now calling for seven or eight. Those things mean a decided increase of business in tho autumn unless there is a crop failure, for, with the railroads, general improvement is always preceded b} r a picking up of local freight business, and this was pronounced all through the month of March. The local passenger business has never suffered as much as has the freight business, though there was some falling oil, which has now been followed by improvement in that line also. I cannot say as much of through freight or passenger business, but tho improvement in these lines will undoubtedly follow in due time." Mr, J, D. Laying, general manager of thc'West Shore railroad, reports a similar state of things on that line. "The improvement in traffic between towns," said Mr. Laying, "means at least that the people are wak- ir.g up and are IT. WALTER TvunT). getting ready to do business, if not actually doing it, and that is very encouraging. We aro not worrying because of the slow revival of through business, sinco through business -means merely export business. We like 'export business, of course, because it brings foreign money into tho country, but what we must have is plenty of business in the country and between its different parts, and it is a revival in this direction that we are hoping for and that we are beginning to observe. It is yet too early to talk much about the crops, but from the boiled out and hard baked plains of Nebraska and Kansas, where the dry heats of a number of summers have faMy cracked the earth, comes the information that Che heavy snows of last winter and the copious rains of spring have put the soil in better shape than it has been in years, and that means that the people there will be ulivo again this year. This I regard as a very important point, though perhaps not more important than the fact that such improvement as we have seen has been gradual aud not sudden or spasmodic." Eussell Sage sat in his office on lower Broadway and looked at me thoughtful ly when I asked f or his opinion of the business outlook. "Well," he said, slowly, '•I feel encouraged. I do not look for a n y- thing very start. ling, to be sure, but I am sure the facts warrant a certain degree of hopefulness. The winter and spring have been of such a character as to proraiso good crops. Upon this promise business will improve all summer, and unless something untoward happens in the meantime I urn sure there will be yet better things in the autumn. In the meantime railroads, merchants and all sorts of business men should be careful not to let the spirit of competition lead • them to a wreckless cutting of rates and prices. Some of the merchants in New York whose stores I have recently visited have been seUing their goods at figures much below the mark at which profit is possible. Railroad freight rates in some instances have been cut down to a point at which it is actually-impossible to pay operating ex- penscs.'let alone interest on obligations und dividends. "These things are unwise and, _if continued too long, would lead to still further declension of values and stagnation of business, but I believe the present upward tendency will check all this and that prices of goods, rates of freight and wages of -working people will all go up in the actnmn. It must not be forgotten, however, that this is an era of great competition, and whoever wishes to progress, _or even keep afloat, must keep up with the times, lie must avail himself of all the latest improvements in his line, he must look after all the economies aud he must have the best machinery. Puring all the depression there has been, greater activity in the manufacture of certain sorts of machinery than in many other directions and some people have failed to understand this. It bas been due to the fact that many IfUSSELL SAOE, • capital'; liave oeen ihWodncing'inew and mom extensive plants of machinery than they formerly used in order to conduct their business more economically. Kow that the tariff has been cut down and American manufacturers have less advantage than in the past in competing with the manufacturers of Europe, the introduction of more labor-saving machinery will go on and will increase much faster than ever before." j Among- the u»iiker»- i ' Ex-Postmaster Gen. Thomas L. j James, president of the Lincoln national -bank, also spoke in a hopeful strain. "There is mori/. demand for money," said he, when I questioned him, ''and, ha my judgment, business generally has assumed a healthier tone during tho past few weeks. I look for a steady and continued increase in the volume" of business," he continued, "though not a ranid one. Hates of in- tercst'and'discount are a little liigber, though not to a. burdensome extent, and bills are being paid more promptly, to the great joy and comfort of everybody. An interesting fact is that, as I observe it, business is now better in the south than in the west. Money is not a drug anywhere, and that is, perhaps, the most hopeful sign of all." At the Chase national bank I saw also Gen. Sam Thomas and Senator Calvin S. JJriec. Gen. Thomas has recently returned from an extended trip through the south and west, having visited South Carolina, Georgia, Illinois and India n a . "During m y entire absence," said Gen. Thomas, "1 saw many evidences of business improvement and much promise for the future. I believe that the crops will this year bo larger than they have been for several seasons. Of course this will make tho railroads busy and when they are busy mono y always circulates. Now as a lack of circulation of money has much to do with all the trouble, 1 think we are pretty safe in looking for general, though not rapid improvement. Senator Erice, I know, concurs fully in these views." ;: ;to'be-in tlieinanufacturlpg'clties ol the •east,''said' ilr. Legjfett. • "From Tfew England, New York, New Jersey and Perinsvlvania, we have had many favorable reports both by letter and from our traveling men. More men are being put on by manufacturers, in mines and iron mills, or the men already working are kept on at full time instead of halt tiaie or less, and this makes a demand for more groceries of course." DEXTEK M.vKsnArj.. RAISING DAIRY CALVES. The Flan Formed br SacceMful Dairy-am In WUconilo. Dairy farming in this part of Wisconsin (Jefferson county) is practiced to the exclusion of almost all other kinds, a few hogs, of course, being kept for the purpose of consuming- the.skim- milk. To be successful the farmers must have good cows, and to have good cows they must begin with good calves. We select the calves produced by the most profitable cows, taking into consideration not only tbe quantity of milk, but the quality, also, as determined by the Babcock test. Our herd, consisting of forty-six thoroughbred cows, Is headed by a full-blood bull. When a calf is born that we wish to raise we allow it to run with the mother one day on^- unless the cow's udder is in bad condition. In that case wo believe it is best for the calf to suck. After the first day teach it to drink, giving the milk from the mother. Give about 8 pounds night and morh- SENATOR CALVIN 8. T»llc from th« Merchants. Hon. William R. Grace, one of the most extensive importing and exporting merchants iu the country, expressed a hope for better times, but said that the people must not build too largely upon the evidences of improvement now WILLIAM R. GRACE, visible nor allow themselves to venture too far or too fast. "Tho exports from Now York have been larger than before during the past year' or two." he said, "and this has been due principally to the lower prices that have lately prevailed, especially ns regards drygoods. The great trouble with the export trade of the United States in the past has been the great fluctuations in prices, clue to the enormous home demand and the fact that whenever there was an especially hcav.y j demand the heavy duties kept out imported goods. Thus, an exporter who could furnish goods at one. price this month was almost sure to find it impossible to furnish them at the same price next month, and this caused trouble. If, in tbe future, prices shall remain at a more regular levsl,' there is no doubt that a large quantity of American goods will be exported. During the whole ol the depression the export of paper ol all sorts has been large and growing because of the low prices which have been possible on account of cheapness, in this country, of the materials from which paper is rnado. The exportation of paper has not been confined to any one or a few grades; print paper, wrapping paper, strawboards and the cheaper g-rades of writing paper have been sent abroad in really great quantities, the countries of Europe, of course, being much heavier customers than those of South Amcrca. In the finer grades of letter paper, however, American manufacturers hate not yet succeeded in doing much buEiness -with European buyers, but in that line, even, there will be heavy American, exports in a few years. I believe that under the operation of the present tariff with the prices of raw materials constantly declining 1 , American manufacturers will shortly be able to materially increasetheircxportbusiness." Mr. Grace also spoke of tho well-sustained activity in certain lines of machinery manufacture during the entire period of the depression, to which Mr. Sage called attention, and attribvited it to the same, causes, namely, the recognized necessity of decreasing the cost of production as much as possible by the introduction of every available labor-saving contrivance. John Claflin, the drygoods merchant, expressed much hopefulness. "Times are certainly better in our business," said Jlr. Claflin, "although I cannot say that the dem a n d has increased as to quantity of late, yet there is a Jons' firmer demand, and this is evidenced by the fact that prices are better. Bills have been fairly well paid in the dry- goods trade all through the depression, but there is a slight improvement in this direction and I look for a continu- ance'of the present upward tendency."

The past season after tho first montb we began giving 10 pounds of skiminilk in the morning and about the same amount of sweet milk at night. At this age also begin to feed a little fine hay. At about two months of aR-e they are put into winter quarters, where they are fed skimmilk entirely with a good supply of hay and grain. Begin with 8 or 10 pounds at a feeding, and gradually increase the amount until it reaches 15 pounds. Feed regularly and heat the milk to 90 degrees before giving it to them. Always treat them kindly. The exact amount and kind of grain feed will be governed by circumstances largely and by the capacity of.the individual animal. Our calves aro given ground oats with a sprinkling of old process oilmeal; probably no two receive • the same amount. In 'feeding grain be careful to not overfeed at first. Begin with alight ration and gradually increase it. Some farmers in ray vicinity give calves constant access to grain feed after they have become accustomed to it. We stable our calves in a warm barn, each one having a separate stall, two of which are shown in tho accompanying illustration. Each stall is 2M feet high, 2 feet wide and 4 fe*it long from manger to drop. In front of the calf is a uiangcr for hay 0 feet high, Infect long and just as wide as the stall. In one corner, a a, is a little box in which to place grain feed. At tho back end of each stall partition is a 2x2 incll.tim- ber running from the ground to tho ceiling, for support. At the front every 4 or 5 feet is a 2x4 answering the same purpose. A strap on which is placed an iron ring is fastened around each calf's neck. A rope with a snap at one end is tied to the manger and by it the calf is secured. In spring when the grass is well started tho calves are turned out to pasture and not again taken up until they are yearlings,—F. H. Evcrson, in Orange Judd Farmer. MODERN COW STABLE. One That Is Comforcnhlo for the AnlmaU and for the Owner. The model cow stable is comfortable for all concerned—for the cows an i 1 for the owner. It may be thus described: It is roomy, light and airy; clean, and free from dust -and the too common festooned cobwebs that hang from every beam and window frame. It has sunny windows in which on the coldest days the sunshine makes things look warm within, if the cold is aa severe that it is not really warm. But it is built in such a manner that the winds cannot penetrate, and the comfortable,clean.roomy stalls aro well littered, and the co'ws lie and stretch their limbs and chew their cuds -with evident satisfaction and comfort. There is plenty of room to move about and do the necessary work. Tho floor is clean and littered outside of tho stalls, if not inside, and when other litter is used, with, clean, fresh sawdust, it enables one to go about without soiling a shoe or noticing any disagreeable odor. The gutter gathers all the manure, and this is kept well filled with absorbents, but never with horse manure, which gives out too strong an odor to be permitted in any cow stable. Above are the feed bins and the store fodder, with the cnt- ter and spouts to get the feed down from above into the mixing boxes. There is a cellar under the floor to receive tbe manure drawn from the gutters with a broad hoe made for the purpose, and sweptcleanly down twice a day. The passages are amply wide, and one can go about with tbe greatest convenience and ease.—Fa rmers Voice. Rubber Root« for DosrjrleS.

Indeed, so far as I know, its only use, except for fuel, has been as post timber. The wood is hard and takes on. a beautiful polish, while in color and grain it is much more attractive than several fashionable cabinet woods. Repeated efforts to grow tho honey locust at the agricultural college of South Dakota failed. The young seedlings grew well the first year, but were killed, root and top, tbe first winter. In northwestern Iowa, twenty-five miles northeast of Sioux City, there is a fine specimen of thornless honey locust, and in tbe grounds of the Iowa agricultural college is the handsomest thornless honey locust I have ever seen. Its trunk is about 2 feet iu diameter; the crown is round tiud well developed, with a spread of branches of about 50 feet across, and altogether it is a tree of great beauty. Prof. Silas JIason, of the Kansas agricultural college, planted a quantity of seed of the thornless variety of tho honey locust four years ago. and has a half-acre plat of trees from 4 to 9 feet high. Not more than half the trees are free of thorns, and there is every gradation, from smooth to very thorny specimens. These thornless honey locusts cannot, be too highly recommended for lawn planting. They give a light, though sufficient shu.de, and their finely divided foliage and long brown fruit pods make them very attractive. On the dry uplands of western Kansas the honey locust is one of the most flourishing trees, as is proven by tho fine growth of a plat of the species at Ogallah, where it surpassed tbe black locust in size. At Hutchison, in the moist soil of the Arkansas valley, it also makes fine growth, thus proving its wide adaptability. Thrifty trees were seen in the suburbs of Denver, grown under irrigation. Honey locust grows well throughout central and southern Nebraska. In an eight-year- old plat at Lincoln specimens twenty feet high were seen. A number of years ago tho honey locust was extensively tried as a hedge plant, but it does not lend itself well to this use. It is too rampant a grower, and no amount of lopping, weaving, bending- and pruning can keep it within reasonable bounds. — Garden and Forest. A FRUIT BARROW.
