A DAIRY VAULT. fC f« Clean, CJriert Hnd Ohenp-lt H AU0 Kfcsliy Ooiidtfnclcd. fh summer is the timo o! yoaf When tlife housewife and dairy-maid strive, al- tnosl in yain, to keep milk, cream and buUor, at the right temperature— fresh, Sweet and palatable. Not every one can have a cellar, and as a rule a cellar Is not a propsr place in which to keep dairy products, for they are all groat absorbants of whatever impurities there »ay be in the surrbunding atmosphere. By taking in these impurities or germs, an avenue is opened by which malarial diseases are conveyed into the System of those using them. There are several methods by which milk and butter can be kept in excellent condition, .and sepativte from any thing else. The way here illustrated is considered by the writer superior to all other arrangements yet devised for exclusive A SUMMEB DAIRY VATJLT. Jnilk and butter use, where one can not Jiavo access to ica and the use of refrio-- orsitO! % <. ° It is made as follows: Select a cool epot with good soil drainage, and exca- •»ato four foot square to a depth of eight •or ton foot. Concave the bottom and jrrout with a mortar of gravel cement. Then build a four-inch wall with brick, Ssiirl in ocmont mortar, extending the •"•all <s\f enough above the surface to furnish ground grade and provide top•K SH.I.T drainage from the vault. Cement «hn bottom and each side wall, after which lake two smooth 3x4 scantlings, •sn'iie longth as depth of vault, and place WD.O on each side as shown in the illus- Ti-ntioi). Secure the lower ends by either 3;i)In:-(;.'ling them in the grouting, or •with narrow strips of wood fitted, be- I'.vi-cji t,))o .scantling and corners; cham- !<•'• t'nt> (,'>[) ends and spike to the cross •<-i 'cc-s of the frame upon which the rial form rests. The elevator is two Im-li/w narrower than the vault, all Ki.W. and made out of dress inch plank £r>'oi>vr.Ml together and cross-battened on ii(.t< uiider side, with well secured 2x4 ii»oh l-y three feet corner pieces fastened across tho top ends by narrow strips of woi/d. Tho wood used in the vault slsouh! all bo oak, where possible. Put rwpws through the ring in center, and 3f»t tlMMri come to and fasten at each fwnor; then extend rope from ring to *'vl i-.round the windlass.

A frame of 3x4 inch material is lii tod to-the top of wall, besides other Sx-Ts 10 give foundation for platform *>iffhl t'f-ot square, with enough, slant to lot off waste water. The 3x4's on top of wall are put in cement—vermin proof, und a double door is made out of pi.-itform material, battened on under #iilf«, striip-hingod, supplied with pulley lifi.L'ivi, and when raised or opened are Joancil against tho windlass frame.— Oi'uiigu Judd Farmer. HORTICULTURAL HINTS. Dmr.n sisparagus, which is asparagus drii'd in the sun, is said to be very toothsome in winter. (iATUBU pears before they are ripe and put thorn away to ripen and see if they itri- votof better flavor. Tin: consumer pays for potatoes these flyys iiud will likely continue to pay for thmn. But the grower is not getting ti-; of the profits.

IT is claimed that fig culture is a great fincuess in Northern California. But that, of course, is no reason why any- l)i>.l7 should conclude that figs can profitably be grown in the North, 'i me number of "agricultural" papers that are now giving remedies for the cucumber bug, is large, There is nothing outing the cucumbers at present, eM-ept men, women and oblldren. lv the orchar§ <& g§rde» is to be fertilized there should be a, vefy definite , of what the BoUAael.- $)$ njaata to jjrown need, j IffraVer, ittK,.||fe to the home-jBA^ manures pi^ aay ' mistaken fjfUJt culture this' , looked ". THIS VEAR'S PROPS. TJi* Yield Compared With That at T.**t The corn crop will be between four and five hundred million bushels loss than last yoar, according to that very conservative authority, the American Agriculturist. This is a falling off of fully one-fourfch from last year's enormous production, and means that tho highest prices DOW current must bo well sustained. Wheat ia also comparatively short, both at home and abroad, while oats are a poorer crop than for several years, and prices m'ust bo higher. Potatoes will also bo a short crop, the acreage having been reduced in tho West, and drouth having cut the yield throughout the Middle and Western States. A fair crop of potatoes is promised in New England and tho Provinces, bat as tho crop IB blighted in Ireland and Scotland, the foreign supply will ee small, and prices here must advance. Cotton is an excellent crop, and will doubtless somewhat exceed last year's production of seven million bales. But the demand is so active that the bettor prices paid for last year's crop should be sustained under a judicious system of marketing cotton. The larger fmits, except grapes, are exceedingly scarce, apples being nearer a^ total failure than ever before known. There is about half a crop of apples in tho Annapolis valley, N. 8., less than that in the Ontario apple bolt, hardly ton per cent, of a yield in the commercial orchards along Lakes Champlain, Ontario, Erie and Huron, a fair crop on the Pacific slope, but a phenomenal yield in a comparatively small area about Kansas City. The almost utter failure oE apples in New York State and Michigan, and the poor crop abroad, means fou i- or five dollars per barrel for choice winter fruit in the loading Eastern markets and but a small surplus for export at any price. Pe-aches are a failure, while pears and plumbs are very uneven, and not half a crop taking the country over, except on the Pacific slope and in small and scattered localities. Beef, cattle and hogs are less in number than for two years, and with the short grain crops bees and pork must command fair prices.— Farm and Home. SALTED VS. UNSALTED BUTTER. A Dairyman's Idoun ns to the True Test of n Cow's Excellence. In recent issues of your valuable paper I find several largo butter tests of Holstein-Friesian cows reported — one going over thirty-four pounds for the week. Unfortunately, the value of these tests for accurate comparison with yields of cattle of other breeds is almost destroyed by their being given in unsalted butter. A long experience in dairying and comparison of several hundred reports oE butter tests have taught mo that the only safe and reliable basis of comparison is that of butter sal tod one ounce to tho pound and worked out ready for market. In very rare instances unsalted butter gains in weight by tho addition of salt and tho extra working. Nineteen times out of twenty it loses — and tlie loss may vary frvni as little as two or three per cent, to man than thirty per cent. of the grans weight. I recall one instance — the official test of a Jersey cow — whore a yield of thirty-four pounds, unsalted, with thirty-four ounces of salt added, made finally but twenty -two pounds twelve ounces of marketable butter, which the gentleman who owned tho cow informed mo was of inferior quality. In an experiment of my own with two samples of butter churned on successive days from the milk of the same cows, one lost about' 4 per cent, by salting, the other about 15 per cent. Tho latter was tho worse of the two. What the public want to know concerning any breed of dairy cattle, or the cows that are put forward to represent it, is the exact amount of merchantable butter that they will produce. Evidently. if their yield is stated only in unsalted XniUor this can not be ascertained. By the rules 01 tv, 6 American Jersey Cattle Club the yield m,, st be stated first in butter as it cornea from the churn, the amount of salt to be added is fixed at one ounce to tho pound, and the butter is then to be thoroughly reworked and tho result stated in butter ready for market. If our Holstein- Friesian friends will adopt the same rule we can compare yields more satisfactorily.— Campbell Brown, in Breeders' Gazoi-te. _ How to Throw au Animal. It sometimes becomes necessary to .throw a bull, steer or cow for surgical or other purposes. It must be done with tho least possible danger of injury to the animal. Our illustration, drawn after a sketch s,ent us by A. Moseley, Jackson County, Wis., shows a very effective and simple device for the purpose. A sound, half-inch rope is secured at one end to the base of the horns. A slipping noose must not be used, but a knot tied at tho extremity is drawn into a loop'at the proper place. The next operation is to get the off hind foot into a large loop of the rope, which is then drawn taut between the hoof and the dew-claws. The operator now stands close to the near hip with the loose end of the rope firmly grasped in his right hand. Seizing with the left hand the other part of the rope he gently but firmly pulls the bead toward him, at the same time taking up the DBVICB FOB THHOW1NG A3ST ANIJJAL. slack by" holding- a.}l taut with bis right hand.

Roll about half an inch thick, cut Into round cakes and bake in a quick oven.—Boston Globe. —The easiest way to clean shoes or rubber over-shoes which have become muddy ia with vaseline. A little "swab" of flannel on the end of a stick Is good for this purpose. Evon if tho vaseline touches the hands, it forms a coating over them, so that tho task ia not so unpleasant as it otherwise would be. —Peas contain a vegetable albumen, which is easily soluble in a faintly alkaline water (used in preparing broth). It is coagulated by heat, ia easily absorbed, and equal to tho albumen of eggs in nutritious value. Pea broth is recommended for invalids, especially for patients suffering from cancer of the stomach or diabetes mol- litus. —Potato Puffs: Pare and mash the potatoes and season as for tho table, with butter, salt and milk. While hot form into balls one and one-half inches in diameter (or smaller), dip each into beaten ogg, roll in cracker dust and fry in hot fat like doughnuts to a delicate brown. These are pretty for a lunch dish, with parsley garnish.—Orange Judd Farmer. —Those who have the table to arrange and clear off throe times a day many save themselves may steps by using a market basket to carry things back and forth between the pantry or cellar. Of course you can use any size, and make it as fanciful as you ploase. Some like a large size with an oilcloth lining, as that is easy to keep clean, and others prefer to have the outside simply stained rather than covered. —German Puffs: One pint of milk, three eggs, a little salt, and flour enough to make a «hin batter; j-our into eight buttered cups. Have the oven hot, and don't be discouraged if they don't rise for the first twenty or twenty-five minutes; they will soon surprise you by puffing above tho cups, and turning a golden brown. For sauce, beat pulverized sugar and a small piece of butter together; moisten with milk and flavor.—Boston Budget. —Turtle Soup: Put a turtle on to boil in three quarts of water, with a little salt added, skim it well as it boils and let it cook two hours; then add about a.quarter of a pound of salt pork, and the same quantity of ham. Let all boll two and a half hours longer, and add ono cupful of rico; one onion, chopped fine; half a teaspoonful of cloves, and the same quantity each of sage and allspice. Lot all boll an hour longer, and just before serving add two tablespoonfuls of flour croamod with a large tablospoonful of butter, and a very little chopped pr-rsley.—Boston Herald. HOUSEKEEPING SCHOOLS. A German Idea That Deserves a Trial In the United States. United States Consul Monagban, at Mannheim, Germany, gives, in a recent report, an account of the German housekeeping schools which are to bo found in every town, city and district of the empire. While German boys are being taught Greek, Latin, mathematics and military exercises, the girls almost everywhere ate learning to bo good, careful, saving, industrious wives and mothers. The consul says* It is astonishing how carefully, clean ly, tirelessly, happily they, work, sing- Ing all the time some lullaby song of Schiller or other national poet. Order is a German housewife's first law. The scholars go to these schools, not as to a task, but as to a playground, with zest and interest. The instruction is both practical and tuooretical, and deals not only with cooking In all its branches, but with the nutritious qualities of various foods, the care of the sick, nursing and caring for children, household arithmetic, written and mental, sewing by ha ad and with machine, ironing, mending, knitting, dress-making, and, all the processes-of dairying and vegetable gardening. Girls are not admitted to these schools until they are sixteen, when their ordinary education is supposed to he completed. There are two courses, ono in summer and one in winter. The summer course begins May 1, and continues until harvest time. The winter begins in November, and continues until Easter, with two weeks' vacation at Christmas and Now Year's. Most of the girls are boarding pupils. and' pay ono mark—about twenty-five cents—a day for board. They follow a rigid routine, rising on work-days at half-past five, and on Sundays and holidays at six o'clock. As soon as they are dressed they attend morning prayer, each according to her own faith. Then they make their own beds—in the art of doing which they are carefully instructed—and prepare tbeii breakfast. For the rest of the day work goes on very much as in a private*houfce- nold. The schools are divided into olaswa according to proficiency. Certain hours are set apart to lessons in nursing, culinary chemistry and other branches of knowledge useful to a housewife. There is constant care to develop character and piety. Evening pray«r and »«going to bed" coma at h^lf-past nine. The graduates of these schools 4o not need a dowry to help teem along in the world- Consul Monaghan says: "Any thing more than a mere idea of the good done it is not in the power of a pen to give. I bave seen young girls from eighteen to twenty-five take charge of large households, superiaieadijag the buying, arranging, cooking a»^ serving pf meal? and a hundred »bouseb.Qld duties. These ucb,ooi$ give trajaii^ to all classes, and fit girls to fill almost any statior in life, whether of wife or housekeeper, cook pr general ftorya&tj, They deserve a trial in the I^ifi $$»$$•," ¥ otjitU'* Compiunion. ^^ AFTKR shopping for the greater part of a recent afternoon, 6 well-known Brooklyn lady, with a letter in her hand, ontcred a drug store. She asked for and received a postage stamp. "Any thing olso to-day, ma'am?" inquired tho clerk. "No, I think not," she replied; "plcaso send it to tho house." VI—I beg pardon, ma'am," stammered the clerk, "but what is it you wish to have delivered?" "Why, the-the—" Then, suddenly refreshing her mind, she quickly added: "Oh, well, never mind it," and took the postage stamp and Walked out.
