MVKHMORK. \Gaxette: A very startling and unusual piece of news comes from St. Jo. this week, to the effect that the new igvave yard fence had been purposely •damaged and practically ruined. It iseems there lias recently been a new burying .ground laid out there, on the location of which the people of the •Catholic church had been somewhat divided iin opinion. The new ground was laid out, nevertheless, and a line fence ihad been built around it, but sometime between Sunday and Monday nights this fence was sawed, here and there, leaving nearly every board in it about the proper length for stove wood. The indications are that there must have been quite a number engaged in it, as the work must have occupied some time and some strength, a numbei of the posts having been pulled from the ground. On one of the posts there was tacked a notice signed "White Caps." .the contents of which we are not prepared to state. Considerable excitement is naturally raised by this little episode, the outcome of which remains yet to be seen. In any eyenl the damaging of the property is quite •serious matter, or is liable to be, to the perpetrators, if discovered. \ \ ' UANCKOFT,- From the Register. E. F.

Now that we have the movable frame hive, together with all the modem improvements in bee culture, even timid ladies can don their bee veils nnd rubber gloves and take care of a few colonies without danger of being stung, thus furnishing their own tobies witfrfine honey. Sjnce Mr. Alley has invented the drone trap and queen cage combined we can place one of these to each hive during the swarming time, nnd go to church or the Farmers' institute without clanger of our beautiful golden Italians swarming and going to the forest for a new home during our absence. By removing the wire nail in the trap the queen can return to her home nnd former duties. When the beekeeper returns lie can, if increase is desired, divide the bees, giving one part to the queen nnd the other a matured queen cell. If, however, honey ,and not an increase, is the object in view, then go through the hive destroying or removing to other hives or nuclei all queen cells, leaving the queen, if she is a desirable one; if not, this is a good time to supercede her by a better and younger one. If there is too much honey in the hive remove it and place what you leave on the outside, filling in the center with fresh comb or comb foundation. It is highly important to see that there is but little drone comb m the hive, for we do not want n lot of wortliless, 'non-producing consumers. It is estimated by good authority that two inches square is a sufficient amount for each colony, Now, let all the bees remain in the same hive. See that it is well shaded and ventilated from the bottom, and with proper care the swarming for the season is over with that colony. In working for extracted honey it is much easier to keep down the swarming impulse than when working for comb honey. Mr. Alley has recently invented a swarming hive, so that you can place your empty prepared hive side by side with the one that is expected to swarm. Place the hiver on the two hives, and when, they swarm they will hive themselves. Don't be afraid of overproduction. If there is no market for your honey create one by working up your home market. If we have anything to sell we must let it be known. Eight here in Belton I liave an excellent market for my honey. assure you that the demand was not created by my sitting back in my rocker and taking life easy, but it was by vigorous, active work. One gentleman here says that I have ruined his family; they will no longer eat sorghum and chemical sirups, but must and will have honey. He first bought a small bucket. Now he orders by the ten'gallon can. In the last two years I have sold 8,500 pounds of honey and have had orders for over 1,000 pounds since my supply was exhausted. You will see from this that honey is not a drag upon the market.—Mrs. S. E. Sherman in Farm and Eanch. - ' CAVACRY HOK8£8. trhat Kind of Horgeg the United Staf«i Government Iltty*. Congress annually appropriates about |200,000 to be expended in the purchase of horses. This amount is divided pro rota among the divisions of the army, those on the Atlantic coast not requiring fig large a sum as the cavalry on the frontier, where the life of the animal is not altogether one of lazy contentment. In Arizona, especially, the equine mortality is greater than in any other section, and more horses become disabled aud unfit for further service. The burning sands and alkali deserts lead to blindness and disease of the hoof, and the animal has either to be shot or sold. There are nearly 10,000 horses in use by the United States army. Of this number about !iO per cent, are sold annually because of their unfitness for further cavalry or artillery duty, and about B per cent, are lost by death. So in order to maintain the standard it is necessary to purchase about 1,500 animals every year. The regulations require that tht! horse shall bo » gelding of nnif6rm and hardy color from fifteen to seventeen hands high, from four to eight years old and weighing between 900 and 1,200 pounds for a cavalry horse and between 1,050 and 1,800 for artillery horses. The animals \isually last about six years, and at the end of that time are sold at auction, or before if they aro disabled BO as to be iinfit for service. When sold the officer puts a brand (I. C.) on the horse, malting it impossible for the horse to be sold to the government at some other point.—Horse. I At lie. Per Dozen.

There is to be seen a few miles from the outskirts of Richmond, Tex, ,a natural curiosity, the like of which is perhaps to be found nowhere else in the world. It is an enormous oak tree literally suspended in the air. Iratands in the midst of a dense grove known as Bentley's wood, and is made quite a show of. The mystery of its supension is that numerous hunting parties having camped beneath it during a period of many years their fires have gradually burned the trunk entirely away for a distance of six feet, but i..'• large and spreading branches are so closdy entwined in those of "the trees growing closely about it that it is supported by 1 "Ul.

A pinch of it in hot water, taken eithej just before or just after a meal, is a valuable aid to#digestion, and 1 a cupful of'very hot salt water will sometimes quiet the most persistent nausea, A little girl who was told to put some in. an aching tooth says, "I just put in a little salt, and in a few minutes I felt the naughty aching nerve curl right down and go to sleep."—New Evening Sun.

Feed Crushed Bone to tho Pullets. Of the various things—in the way of food, comfortable quarters, etc.—that go to the early development of the laying qualities in pullets perhaps no one thing has a greater influence in this direction than, raw, or better yet, baked bones. It may in fact be set down as a rule that, if every other seemingly necessary element is supplied and that left out, there is always vexatious delay in the appearance of biddy's maiden egg. "Every part helps a part," the old lady said as she seized upon the fowl's gizzard, and by that rule bones help to make bones in the growing chick. * Not only is it necessary to furnish the material out of which bones shall be manufactured, but the shell of tho egg also is identical with the more substantial portion of the bones, and additional preparation should be made for that in calculating the amount which shall supply all the demands. Much of the food given . to fowls is so deficient in these ' elements that they can be supplied in no other way except by giving them outright the actual bone material, as it is found in the framework of larger animals.—Poultry World. For the Hogg. In the first place pure air and water are numbered among the essentials. I don't mean by this that mud or dirt is particularly objectionable, but I mean that the water should not be stagnant or rendered impure by any decaying or decomposing element. Dead animals of every kind should be removed, and even decaying vegetation is not necessary, to prosperity of the pig. JHs foocLmusfr be somewhat varied. He is fond of corn, and its extensive we in swine feeding is touch less objectionable in tbe couth than it is in more northern states. There it is hard and flinty; here it is soft and more easy of digestion. But do not feed corn alone. Wheat bran mixed with water and fed before souring makes a first class change, and the hog that has corn in the morning and bran in the evening ought to be contented if he has free access to gross in its season.-—Cor. Texas Farm and Eanch. SHORTHORN HEIFER. not valued so much as formerly for beef. They have simply gone out of fashion somewhat. Mr. William Crozier says he once knew a shorthorn cow to sell for $80,600. While the polled Scotch cattle and the Hereford are coming into vogue as beef makers it by no means follows that the shorthorn is to go out entirely or lose its usefulness. Its beef is of excellent quality, at the very best when the animal is 5 or 6 years old. That, how- ; ever, is longer than most stock raisers can afford to keep a beef animal in this fast age, ••••--The usual graj', grizzled and brindled coat of the shorthorn is well known. To be perfect in shape a pure blood should resemble the animal in the illustration, except that it should not be so fat. The shorthorns have been bred for beef so many generations that they are comparatively worth little as milk cattle, though they were once excellent dairy cows. larm Loans i AT 6, 7, 7 and a half, and 8 per cent, on five to ten years time with privi- •lege of partial payments before due.

Tkorouybbredi lor Work. • Mr. Brodhead, of the Woodburn (Ky.) horse breeding f ana, writes in The Stock Farm: "We have used thoroughbreds in the plow, the carriage and under saddle, and invariably they were gamer than am- mal» used for the same purposes that had not the thoroughbred proas. A mule whose dam is highly bred will outwear •ovw»l whow dams artuot. They are bettor in every particoUr.

How is it that private breeders breed more winners (in proportion) than do public breeders? The reason is not far to seek. The former allows his yearlings to gallop about the paddocks until they go into the trainer's hands, while the latter are by the force of circumstances obliged to pamper and feed up their yearlings for sale. It is natural also that the public breeder takes great care of his yearlings, which are therefore for a month or more previous to being sold led about at a walk for an hour or two every day, and are seldom if ever allowed to go loose and have a good gallop. Consequently they pass from the sale ring into the trainer's hands full of soft, unhealthy fat instead of good, hard muscle.—Live Stock Record. Points of Interest. Competitive trials of sheep dogs are a feature of the live stock shows in Wales. The same sort of tests should be introduced at our county fairs'. American farmers do not begin to make use of the shepherd dog as much as they ought to. They do not know its value when well trained. Every United States agricultural experiment station ought to have a thoroughly accomplished apiarist who will tell the people of the state how they can make bee culture pay. Honey ought to clear out of the markets the glucose and sulphuric acid sirups altogether. Hereford cattle are becoming popular and are excellent beef stock. They are being introduced into the northwest to cross with the native stock. A Michigan firm of Hereford breeders have been for three years sending these cattle to Central America to improve the beef stock of the magnificent cattle grazing plateaus of that region. City chickens are becoming tougher and tougher, and more hopeless than ever. After trying repeatedly to get a fowl that they can masticate families cease to buy poultry altogether, and content themselves as best they may with meat that travels on four legs instead of two. What is the matter with the poul* try sold in city markets? We have seen the statement made that it is the inou- bator rearing that ruins the fowls, that the artificial heat toughens the meat and makes it worse than India rubber. We do not ]g$ow. We do know that the chicken* aow sold in the markets are «o fiendishly tough that it i* impossible to eat them, ifl4 that this did not use to be tfeecattfc Qariouily, will chicken rai^ors tai to this matter?
