MODERN HOG It Differ* FEEDING, thu Practice In Widely from Voca« for On It has been our experience, says F. A- Harris in the Massachusetts Ploughman, that the purer, fresher and sweeter the food given to our hogs the better the result. We know that for ages it has been taught by precept and ex ample that anything was pood enough for a hog, and, as a result, every hog- breeding country is losing thousands of dollars annually through losses from cholera and other diseases. It is high time that the breeders and feeders were beginning to comprehend that success in hog raising can no longer be obtained under the methods of long ago. The hog of to-du.y has been so ted as to enable it to turn the im- nse crops of grain into meat in the brtest time, and at a profit to the feeder. His digestive tract has boon reorganized, and its capacity to make a hog has been reduced from two years •on grass, mast and corn, to eight months on grain, grass and milk. To do this the hog must retain a healthy condition. Soured food, irreg- ;ular moals and a surplus of too strong {foods always tend to produce indiges- 'tion and always ent away the profits iOf swino feeding. The hog should always have the sweetest of foods, should bo allowed to masticate at least twomoals a day, should never be over- ifed nor underfed, should have fresh water at all times, should have shelter both winter and summer and a 'good, warm, dry bod to rest and sleep I «twill. The bods should be kept as clean and free from dust as possible, should bo cleaned as often as nocessa- I Xy and air-slaked lime put in each time J .tiefore putting in fresh bedding. Wo laomotiraos use carbolic acid, but we I find lime cheaper and more lasting. We 1 also give our-hogs the run of a grass lot when possible, for grass and exer- I cisc are both essential to health.

She seized me by the hands and said: "I pray for you night and morning—that Heaven will preserve you till this is over. . I tremble to think something might happen to yon, 0, sir, we never can pay j'ou; but when you see that poor dear with his children in his arms once more- I am sure you will feel that you have not been wholly unpaid." I tried to let down the pegs of this strain as softly as I could and tell he: that it would not do to be ovcrsanguini of the result, but she said, with calm assurance, that she had no fear of the result now, and shortly afterwards her two winsome children announced to me with pitiable importance that papa was coming homo again. So when Daryl arrived on Monday 1 told him that I felt as Lf I were the only guilty 'party in the case. >Wo hac allowed an estimable woman to build up tho most unwarranted hopes only to Cruelly destroy them in tho end.

" "What do you soo in that?" flow to Start the Tonne Creature* In the Way of Quick Growth. While the lamb is young is the time to start it in the way of quick growth, j Its future usefulness as a manufacturer : of mutton from hay and corn depends | very largely on the start it gets during j its first few weeks of existence. If it J once gets stun ted,'no amount of subsequent coaxing can make it do its best. At first you mast feed the lamb through its mother. To make her give plenty of milk, she needs, in the winter time, all the clover hay she will eat. It should be good clover hay—early cut and well cured. She needs plenty of wheat bran. If you do not wish to fatten her for market, I would give her no corn, or very little. If I wanted to fatten her with the lamb, I should give her a ration of this mixture by weight: 100 parts of corn meal, 100 parts of wheat bran, 10 parts of linseed meal. I would gradually accustom her to this food, -and as she became used to it, I would give her all she would eat, feeding it by preference in a self-feeder. Now, if the lambs are to go to market as fat lambs, I can suggest no better food for them than that mix- T N paint the best is the A cheapest.

Yet, if they are to eat grass during the summer and be fattened next winter, as by far the greater part must be, I would not give the corn meal, as they would do better during the summer without having had it. Lambs will do exceedingly well on good clover hay and unlimited wheat bran. That is the way I am feeding ours at present. If the lambs arc to be used for breeding stock, I would .avoid giving corn meal as a heating or fattening food. Give oats, bran and linseed meal. If the ewe lambs when grass is green in the spring, she ought not to need any other food; yet the lambs pay well for the grain that you give them. It may pay you to continue the wheat bran all summer. I show a diagram of n good self-feeder for bran, which can be eaten from by both ewes and lambs. The cut shows a cross-section. It may. hold twenty bushels or more.—J. E. Wing, in Country Gentleman. LIVE STOCK NOTES. THERE is said to be 40 per cent, shortage in cattle in this country. GOOD breeding is of prime importance, but is not of much account without good feeding and good care. CLOVEB, alfalfa and the cow pea eon- tain twice the quantity of digestible protein that hay from the grasses does. IT isrworth while to take great care, under present conditions, to get sheep of RoxLv maturitv and-the lartrest de- velopment of meat of the best quality. \YiiiLK there is life, it is always advisable to strive for the restoration of a valuable sick animal to health. I'jomelimes a new remedy has saved a very sick animal. IF several individuals of a' herd are attacked by a disease, while the disease may not be contagions, it is sate to conclude that it is, and quickly to remove the sick ones. Ax Iowa swine breeder declares that forty head of hogs can be kept on an acre of artichokes, without other feed, from the time frost is out of the ground until they grow again, and from October 1 until it freezes.—Farmer's Voice. Heavy Seeding on Itloh Land. The question aa to whether thin seeding or thiek seeding of grain is preferable cannot be determined by any general rule. Sometimes thin seeding produces a full crop, especially if tho seed be sown early and the season be such as to induce tilling of the plant But on very rich land this makes too luxuriant a growth of straw, which falls down and majccs the grain light and shrunken. If the soil is very rich it is better to sow the grain so thickly that the plants will slightly crowd each other from the first. About the time of heading tho plants will draw BO heavily on tho soil for moisture that each will check tho -growth of the other, and all will stand up with well- filled heads of grain. But this heavy seeding will be hard on clover or grass seed, though aot so much so as will the fallen straw where the seeding has not been so heavy.—Rural World. give, them health.

Don't read the official verbiage— look at that sentence. What is it? 'Yes, Mme. Prineveau purchased a large silver watch of Bringdat Frere, who was closing 1 out business. Number and description of watch unattainable.'" After reading this wo both laid back and looked at each other in silence a moment. "It is your sane opinion, Daryl, that Prineveau was killed by a watch." "Just as sure of it as Clarkson's wife is that you will free her husband from this charge," "But we havent got a scintilla o proof." "Xo, well make Mrs. Prineveau fur nish it on tho witness-stand."

"Is that sarcasm?" "Ifo. Inspiration. Dont you know <vby sho retained you?" "Because she thought Td make the worst possible defense." "That was a secondary motive. The primary one was compunction.

Wlut • Miracle -ma Th«ret Twilled lilmb* and « Crooked Neck Straightened. (From t\t Taitnton, Mcui., Qauttt.) Over in the town of Wrentham, Mass.. everyone is agog with excitement. A child who had been physically deformed forfour years, and who wa« the object of the pity.of the entire town, hai had her limbs straightened out, her head again .made erect by the straightening of her neck,. and is running about town now with the freedom and abandon of any child. • Mary S. Fuller is the name of the little cripple. Many of our readers will remember her. She it but a child of eight years, and has spent tiie pa»t 'four yean in bed, hopelessly cripiSed. Eheumatic fever four years ago attacked the nerve* and cords of her lower limbs and neck, so that the former were drawn all out of-shape and twisted .and bent bnckwards in a pitiable .manner; and the cords of the latter were so tightened on one side as to draw her head down on her shoulder. Her arras, too, were helpless, and neighbor's hearts bled at th« little one's suffering. The progress of the disease reduced her to a skeleton, and the poor mother has almost given her own life for thatof the child, in her untiring watching at the little one's bedside. Four years of watching! four years of waiting! and at last the child began to mend, her cords relaxed, her nervous system gathered strength and power, and to-day, as stated above, she is running abont the town a vigorous and happy child. Wrentham rejoices, physicians applaud, and new methods in nerve treatments have been successfully vindicated. Formerly the surgeon would hare been called on fri this case.to straighten the limbs. Now the idea is to work in harmony with nature so far as possible, and to this end remedies are employed which assist nature, supplying to the weakened parts the chemical properties thev-need. For instance, in the above case. Dr. "Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People were used, and effected the cure easily and narurallv. The mother of the child said: "She h»d been given up by four doctors, who were certain that they could not cure her. Why, she couldn't open her mouth, and I actually had to force the food into it. Her mouth was all sores, and; oh dear, what a looking child the wsj, and such a care! Kobodv but myself knows what a trial we both havebeen through for she was too young to realize it. If my statement will do anybody any good I shall be glad to hove it published", and if those who read it will only come to me if thev tn tkeptical, I can convince them in very little time that -I know what T '-am- talking about People around here say it was a miracle, and I believe it was." , . .

The practice of cramming hens with wheat at every ration is the very way not to get eggs. Too much wheat, buckwheat or barley will go into fat rather than eggs and fat is a disease in poultry. The morning mash should be fed in a long narrow' trough about 1% inches wide, nailed to tho side of tho house so that the hens cannot jump into and soil tho food. Feed only enough soft food to satisfy, never so much as togorge. When a hen has had so much food that she will ffo into a corner and mope, she has had too much, and if the overfeeding 1 is continued she will become too fat to lay. If cut preen bones arc fed it should bo in the proportion of 1 pound to every 10 hens. If fed morning and night, a small feed of oats at noon and night is all that will be necessary. Experience will teach the "happy medium" in feeding 1 .—A. G. Gilbert, in Farm and Home. RULES OF THE ROAD. Thfl EDffllihmnn Turns to the Left, th« American to tb* Klght. The "rule of the road" is curiously Different in different parts of tho Anglo-Saxon world. When, for in- Btanee, an American who -is riding or driving meets another rider or conveyance on the road, he turns to the right. The Briton, on the contrary, turns to the left. But if a walking Briton meets another pedestrian on the road or the sidewalk, he turns to the right. The rule of the road has become crystallized in England into poetic forms, one of which is as follows: The rulo of the rond Is a paradox quite; For In drivlncyour carriage along. If you bear to the le;t you are sure to go right, II you turn to the right you go wrong. But la walking tha streets 'tis a different case: To the rifrht It Is proper to steer: On the- left there should be enough of clear 'space For the people who wish to walk there. Another reading of the same rule is more epigrammatic: The rule of the path, To get well alonf? Is "keep 10 the right" And you cannot go wrong-. "Why opposite rules should prevail in England and in a part of the tjnited States which, like New England, derived all its ordinary customs from old England, is not clear, but the reason for turning to the left is perfectly plain. It is tho custom, not only in England, but in America, for the driver to sit on the right side of the vehicle; and the driver who sits thus can keep his wheel in view, and also that of the passing conveyance, much better if he passes to the left, and keeps his right shoulder to the other man's right shoulder. The practice of turning to the right when on foot is assumed to have grown out of the necessity, in rude and violent times, of keeping free the hand which must, in case of necessity, handle the sword or other weapon. But this consideration must have applied to horsemen as well as to pedestrians. It may be, therefore, that the practice of turning to tho left with vehicles has grown up since the times of peace and security on the road have made weapons unnecessary. In America we may have preserved the earlier usage of England itself, as has been the case with other customs that have been dropped there but carefully'preserved here.—Youth's Companion.

The requirement to turn to the left is a matter of statute law in Great Britain, having been made a part of the highway act of 1S35.

Historically speaking the cup—in the sense of .tea or coffee cup—is i,he youngest member of the European ceramic family, and its form cannot be traced back to classic antiquity, says Home and Country. A well-known writer refers to the ancient Greek kyathos as the probable ancestor ol our present cup. Althoug-h the kyathos bad a sing-la handle it was used as a pitcher and not to drink directly from. Even after the introduction ol tea into Europe had become general—that is, during- the latter hall ol the seventeenth century—tea cups were scarce. Almost simultaneously coffee guined a foothold in Europe, having 1 probably be«n introduced from Abyssinia, Asia Minor and Arabia. Still, apart from Constantinople, the first coffee cups in Europe date only as far back as 10-tS !n Venice, 1G59 in Paris, 1C52 in London and 1004 in Leipsic. From the very first, however, the conventional oriental coffee cup, without stand or handle, was but little used, and in Germany not at all. On the other hand, the Chinese tea cup was used not only for coffee and tea, but for chocolate as well. Undoubtedly specimens of porcelain were introduced into Europe during the middle ag-cs. Yet these were, not imported in a very great quaslity from China until after 1518. Even then ihey came first as articles of vertu, and it was not until later that they were used to drink from. The most prominent of these were cups. Many of the specimens, however, found their way back to the middle king-dom again. The penchant for collecting- old porcelain is far more universal in China than with us, and a, better price is paid lor it. The collection of Chinese porcelains, if it is intended to be only of the gen- nine k&id, requires an immense amount of study and experience, lor the Chinese are admirable imitators, and there are falsifications innumerable in the | market. wood that wiH not split when the hooji is nailed to the tops.
