On the south side there aro three large glass windows to let in the sunlight al so and the entrance to the farrowing pens from the yard is by & self closiu door made as follows: A space of 2 feet, or the distance between two studding, is erst out of the siding where the door is wanted and %y, feet high, and the siding that is cut out is battened closely together and hung in tbe place it was cut from by means of two pieces of strap iron. It will rise up when a pig rnshes against it and let him in and fall back in place again. I give an illustration of this door. A slot is cut in the siding to let in the strap iron, which comes down on both sides of the door and is fastened with wrought nails, which go throngh both door and irou on each side. Tbe door opens from either side, and Mr. Pig never leaves the door open after him when he goes in or out. A pig at 2 weeks old will learn to work it. In pleasant weatber it can be held open to let the bedding dry by raising it and fastening it with a piece of wire. A Missouri contributor to the journal already quoted gives an illustrated description of a device for watering hogs. It is not patented and will take the place of the high priced waterers. It consists of a barrel set in a water tight box. The box should be six inches wider at its top than the diameter of the barrel, and its sides should not be more than eight or ten inches high. Bore a hole in the barrel near its bottom at the height it is desired to have the water stand in the bos and another in the top of the barrel, indicated by A and B. Hole B is plugged up tight, and the A WATEniNG DEVICE. barrel is filled through the hole at A. When tbe barrel is full, the hole in plugged up at A, and the plug iu hole B is removed. The principle upon which it works is that as the \vater runs into the box a vacuum is formed in the top of tbe barrel, and the resistance will not permit the water to run over the sides of the bos so long as the upper plog is airtight Fig. D shows a construction of the waterer by which hogs in four different lots may be supplied from it merely by the arrangeoieiic of fences, the hogs drinking oat of the cor ners of the box. When to Irrigate. When to irrigate is a serious problem, especially so with new settlers. The Irrigation Age says: "To lay dowu an inflexible rule would be absurd ami in fact impossible. The main point is to watch the appearance of the crop and give water ns the conditions demand it. Root crops will thrive best if irrigated frequently. Corn when small should have but little water, frequently none, until it; is several inches high, but when it is earing out it will require a great deal of water. This is true of all crop? when tho grain is filling out and the most rapid growth is being made. The water siiould be shut off when the grain is hardening." The Kew Onion Cnltur*. The new onion culture is becoming so well known that it is almost a rui:=- nomer to call it new. The modern method differs from the old in that the seed is sown under glass in February or March and the plants set iu the open round a,bont the 1st of May, cuttiog back the tops and roots, too, if they are ong and putting them three inches apart in the rows. 'The old way is to jlant seed in open field about April 1. rows about 14 inches apart audthiunius ilants to four inches. A heavy applicn- don of barnyard manure gives better results with onions than die more concentrated fertilisers. Twenty-Four (VCIooK In Concerning the change to the 24-hour ayBtem of time notation on Belgian railways, the minister of state railways issues the following notice: "The naming of the nours of the day will be mafia from 0 to 24. By reason of the adoption of this new regulation, the indication M (matin—morning) and s (soir —evening) appearing in the official railway gulide will be suppressed. The minutes comprised between midnight and 1 o'clock in the morning, such as 12:02, 12:13 and 12:47, will be Indicated by a zero followed by a period and by the number of minutes corresponding, viz, 0.2, 0.14 and 0.47. Midday will be always indicated by 12. Midnight will be indicated, according to the circumstances, by 0 or 24. For a train which leaves a station exactly at midnight, it will be written that it leaves at 0 of th« day during which tbe train is In move- meat. For a train which arrives at a station exactly at midnight, it will be written that It arrives at 24 of the day during which the train has been In movement. The dials of all the station clocks will be completed by the addition of the figures 13, 14, * * * 24 placed, respectively, just beneath, the existing figures. 1,2, * * * 12." NOT GHOSTS.

If It had not been for a presentiment Mozart would probably never have composed his immortal "Requiem." One day,, while he was sitting alone, lost in a melancholy reverie, a stranger entered the room, and, laying a hand- gome sum ot money on the table, requested him to compose a "Requiem" In memory of a dear frlead who had Juat died. Mozart agreed to do so, and be began work at once. Night and day he labored with extraordinary zeal, until finally his strength gave way and he became 111. When his wife tried to cheer him he said brusquely: "It'« no Bse. I composed that 'Requiem' for myself, and It will be played at my funeral." Nothing could rid his mind of thfs idea. Nay, he was even con- Tlneed that the stranger was a visitor from tnu oilier world, who had conn to warn him of his approaching end. So be worked at the "Requiem" until It wu finished, but when the stranjor cam* tot' tt Mozart wai deal. Capacity of an Icehouse. A ton of ice contains 36 cubic feet, >nt as commonly packed, with allowance for spaces and packing material, it s nsual to allow from 42 to 50 cubic eet of space to tbe ton. Thus ten tons onld require a space nearly eight feet square and eight feet high. Houses nre not commonly built smaller than 12 feet square and 13 feet high outside measure, because ice wastes very fast in •mailer spaces.—New England Horn3- itwd. Thl* Thl.f I* Eccemtri*.

One exception still remains. The historic house o£ Coutts. wh«r« royalty keeps Its private accounts, declines to alter the rule or a by-gone age, and visitors to its ancient walls will note that Its employes present a remarkably trim and smart appearance.

They had not gone far when Bismarck complained of fatigue. The emperor, who was quit* fresh, said somewhat testily: "How Is It that, though I am an older man thaa yourself, prince, I can always out- rids ypn?" Bismarck's reply was as reproachful as it was epigrammatic. M Ai, sire," he said, "the rider alw»y« outlasts th» horse." J. Pacific Settlement. Youth's Companion: An unsettled boundary question has for some years disturbed 'the relations of Peru and Bolivia; and the question assumed m threatening aspect a few months ago, when Bolivia occupied by force territory which Peru claims as he own.

Hoir Strange Figure* Occur on Pliot«» graph Xegatlv««* Some unexplained mysteries of photography, most of which seem to de- j pend on some previous exposure of s I plate, without the owner's knowledge, either to light or to some form or chemically active dark radiations, are thus described in the American Journal of Photography: "It is no uncommon experience to find upon new plates certain images of which there seems to be no possible explanation, their startling and unaccountable appear'-nce being 'wropt in mistry,' causing astonishment not unmixed with uncanny feelings. A gen tileman made an exposure upon the in tenor or a friend's nouse: fle was doubtful of the time, and proceeded to develop for under-exposure: to his great surprise the plate developed quickly and to his greater surprise the image was an interior quite different from that upon which he had exposed The plate was from a fresh box and could not possibly have had a previous exposure. "Another Instance o£ this Wnd, having quite a sensational and tragic end- Ing, is on record; An exposure was made upon a. view having a river in the foreground. The photographer, while developing this peculiar plate, was perfectly astounded by an appearance which he had not seen while taking lie photograph and for which he could !ln nci way account. On completing the development there was plainly revealed, in the foreground of the picture, •the figure of a woman, apparently floating upright in the water. Not many weeks after, to complete the mystery, the body of a woman was found in the river at the exact spot where the photograph, had been taken. Again, not long since, the dally papers were agi- tatedl over the account of a traveling photographer who, upon making an exposure upon tSe exterior of a reputed haunted house, discovered at one of the ivindows a portrait of the murdered man through whom the house had gained its evil name. In another case threis distinct images, having no connection one with the cither, were Impressed upon a. single film. The plate was exposed upon a garden In the evening—nothing remarkable being seen— but when placed in the developer a man's hat of old-fashioned shape, a child's dress and a dog were distributed over the image of the garden. Such mysterious images were more common in the d-ays of wet plates than now. "A few years back Prof. Burton investigated the matter. Upon tracing back the history of tba glass he found that, it had been used for other films, and that the images which appeared undoubtedly arose from the remains of previous images. Thu old glass was thuis proved to be the source of the ghosts; it only deepened the scientific myfttery, while It cleared away the supernatural. The glass traced by Burton had been washed for some weeks, lmr,»er»«d in strong nitric sicid, and every :m*»3» taken te Insure chemical clefinllnsss, yet, In spite of ail this, enough energy remained latent to form a developable Image upon the new film, whether by chemical or physical force remains to be discovered. GOLD DUST WASHING POWDER Beoklen Toyaj-ew. A. New York exchange says that during; a gale which ravaged the Atlantic coast, the Short Beach life-saving sta- tioa on Long Island was aroused to res- cuo four men in a small sloop about half a mile from shore. After a ted- locis and perilous trip, the surf boat reiichec! the sloop, and the crew found on. board four men benumbed with cold, aad half starred. When brought to a place of safety and thawed out tn.iij- told their story. They had been .t on a gunning trip on the Sound, and when overtaken by Che storm had taken refuge in a deserted shanty. Their provisions were soon exhausted, and also their fuel, and, although perfectly aware of their peril, they set sail again, in hopes of bringing up at some place where they could get provisions. As a "consequence of such rashness they came near losing their lives. The captain of the life savers remarked afterward that it was a pity to risk the lives of good men to savt the lives of confirmed idiots. The CI«T«r '"What we your •ommands, sir*?"

The old form of exchange'ticket in valid tor continuous passage only on a certain train and date, while the new or modi Bed form will be good on any train, (except the "limited"). On either the date of issue or the day following. This new form has been simplified to render t easy of Issue and to Better accommodate travelers, and the hindrances which accompanied the old form will therefore be, to t early future, entirely obliberated. Interline tickets from points on one Hallway to points on another, via tbrougb car line* and, via junctions wbere connections are close and there are no transfers, are being prepared *» fast as posjiible.
