AGRICULTURAL HINTS, LIVE-STOCK NOTES. GROOMING is as healthful in thfe winter 88 In summer. WABM the bits before putting them Into the hoi'sca' mouths. HOUSKS should be turned oxit for exercise every pleasant day. To GET the best results handling ant training should begin when the colt is very young. KEKMNCI the horse's heels and legs clean in the winter is the best preven tive for scratches. STANDING in wet manure tends to make the feet of the horse tender. Keep the stable clean. IT is generally best to keep one team •well shod during the winter to use on the road when slippery. COLTS %vill make a better growth and development if they arc given alight feed of ground oats every day. CHANOK the feed of ten enough to keep all stock with good appetites. They will thrive better on less feed. IF you have the right kind of horses the buyer will come after them; if the wrong kind you will have to hunt a buyer. SOME people who give the cattle the best of care neglect the hogs. The hog will repay good care as well as other kinds of stock. GUAKD against constipation in swine. The fat forming foods tend to produce costiveness. The opposite kinds of food tend to prevent it. BE careful of the eyes of animals. They are just as delicate as the eyes of human beings. People often work around stock very carelessly with forks. THE swine breeder who feeds oil meal occasionally will not regret it. It is a tonic and a regulator of the bowels. Care should be taken not to feed too much. GBOOMING is a cheap way of improving the condition of the horse. It can be done at the simple cost of a curry comb and brush and the expenditure of a little elbow grease which will never "be missed. ALWAYS remember that a hog is a hog, and consequently, as the 'animal has no judgment about -eating, you must exercise judgment for it. Better let the animal go a little hungry than to feed it beyond its capacity to utilize the food. THE manure of the pig pen is very- valuable. One writer estimateso the value of a pig's manure at a dollar and forty-two cents for every one hundred THE POULTRY BUSINESS. B«gln I INFORMATION ABOUT WESTERN I CANADA, Work Yottl I Owing to the world-wide interest now on a Small Scale and \vny TJp» i v/ VT * I -*K uv * u ji *j »T v^j. *x* ii »»w —— Statements often appear in poultry taken in the fertile provinces of West- papers and others tlvat hens can be made era Canada, many of our reader's are to pay $1 a year, and that one-half that anxious to know more about tho lands, ' -' slimate, rescrarces and chances open to intending settlers in the Canadian Country. The reputation of these prairie lands has been fairly earned by their enormous yields and natural adaptability to mixed and dairy farming, for they re unrivaled in productiveness. amount will readily cover the cost of keeping a year, leaving the other half •for profit. Upon tins basis i* is easy to figure 100 hens will pay $50 as profit and 1,000 hens £500—a, fine'living for a small family. The hens can be purchased by j watching the market at not over 20 j cents apiece or an investment of 8200. Then, counting the houses and the feed at iftiiOO, it is easy to see a very largo I profit in the business; and the beauty oi it is that there is no delay. The income comments immediately after the hens arc bought. That this much is realized in many cases there is no doubt; but that every one can do this, or even half as well, is not true, as many have ascertained by practical experience. It is said tlmt experience is a dear teacher, and it is certainly very true in the pmiltry business. Those who make the business a (success, in a very large majority of cases commence on a small scale, and increase as their experience and business warrant. It seems a small matter to feed and water a lot of hens and gather up the eggs, and it is this that induces so many to make the attempt, only to find that there are many details that, while they do not seem important, yet if neglected will make a considerable difference in the profits. In fact, it is the attention given to these details that assures success. In making a start in the poultry business begin on a small scale. Get a good breed, suitable to the purpose for which they are wanted. In a majority of cases one of the general purpose breeds will prove the most satisfactory. Build a cheap house large enough to accommodate forty or fifty hens, and by the time you have kept that number for awhile you can tell pretty well whether you care to invest more largely. If the results are satisfactory, and you want to raise poultry for market rather than eggs, get an incubator. Fowls of all kinds must be fed and cared for regularly. They need a variety of food, pure water, clean quarters, and such conditions as are neces- lary to maintain good health. As long as the fowls can be kept healthy it ia comparatively easy to make them profitable; hence good care must be taken 1# secure this condition as fully as possible. What others have done and are doing can be done again, but as with many other things more or less experience is necessary, and this can be gained at less expense with a small ••" a larg-e At the close of 1890 a handsomely illustrated and neatly printed set _ of pamphlets was issued, fully describing the country from the Eastern portion of Manitoba to the Pacific Ocean. These have been carefully compiled by competent men, from the most reliable sources, and besides containing a vast amount of useful information put in most readable shape, they contain a great number of letters from actual residents in the country, telling plainly what has been done. Furnished with maps and nicely illustrated they are well worth securing as books of reference. Copies of one, or all of them, will be mailed free of charge to any address, if application is made to L. A. Hamilton, Winnipeg, Manitoba; or to J. F.

A Description of Two Varieties of This Annoying Test. The results produced by this insect are somewhat similar to those caused by the Acarus or "Itch Mite" described in section 88-t. These insects, especially Fig 2, are very common in most sections over the whole southern half of the United States, and are found quite abundantly as far north as Central Illinois and Iowa. The writer can speak from a painful experience, while traveling 1 , of their prevalence in Kansas and Missouri, and in most Southern States. A resident of McLean County, North STALE WELL WATER. WQ. 1.—AMERICAN MG. 3.-IRRITATING HARVEST MITE (A) HARVEST MITE ( ^ The engravings are greatly magnified ;"• the actual natural size ot tho full-grown insect is ehown by the very small dot seen just below the body of each. Central Illinois, tells us the "chiggers" are common and very, annoying there The true "Chigres" (Pules irritanti) are found south of the United States in Mexico, etc. The two insects in the engravings are the offenders of this country, the irritating harvest mite being most common. The mites get npon the skin, especially the lower limbs, and climb up over the lower half of the body, occasionally over the whole, and with their strong mandibles and arms, or elbowed Max- illss, cut and dig their way down into the true skin, causing great irritation, •which results in small swellings, redness and inflammation, causing an irresistible scratching. The insect is often "scratched" out before it can •burrow deeply, thus giving relief. Sulphur applications, the same as for the itch mite, or kerosene will kill the Insects and allay inflammation. Strong «alt water is effective. A severe attack in Kansas was cured for the writer by a prolonged bath in Salt Lake, Utah In Florida, mothers informed us that they used "scorched butter" on their children who were much annoyed by these pests.—Orange Judd Farmer. An Explanation Tluvt Scorns'to Bo Kas*d on Close Observation. I have dug at different times and ia different localities three wells. When they were first dug the water did not taste all right. I attributed the bad taste to the earth and stones. One of them is thirty feet deep, and I used to water seven horses at it and at the srone time we used the water from it in the family. There never was better or purer water, and this continued so long as we watered the horses and were drawing large quantities from it each wa,y. Then I dug a well near my barnyard and put a wind-mill over it to pump water for my stock. From that time I did not water horses at the old •well and the water began 'to taste and smell badly shortly afterwards. The well filled up so that there were nearly fifteen feet of water in it. I have abandoned it entirely and get my water from the new well, on account of its purity, because so much water is pumped from it for stock. Neither slops nor any thing else impure can be found within four rods of the old well. I have attributed the bad taste and smell to the fact that the water stands so long. I believe I am right. I cau see no reason why water will not get stale by standing as well as any thing else. I am away from home a large share of my time and find very many •wells the water from which tastes and smells very badly indeed, and in every instance it comes from wells that -are nearly full. On the contrary, when I find good water it is from deep wells in which the water never gets very high. I believe the water from shallow wells is purer than that from deep ones, because the water in the former is drawn out soon after it has flowed in, while in the other case the water is, in great part, made up of surface drainage, and has become more or less foul from stagnation and lack of aeration.—C.M.Lusk, in Rural New Yorker. the vessels provided for have been finished the United States navy will have twenty-nine new steel unarmored and armored cruising vessels. SECBETABY TRACT has decided upon the names for five new ships of the navy now building. They will be called Cincinnati, Raleigh, Indiana, Massachusetts and Oregon. THE Stationary Engineer remarks: The steam plant on some of the war vessels assumes astonishing proportions and is the principal element of their composition. The new British war-ship Victoria has in her equipment eighty- eight steam engines, not counting those in her torpedo boats and launches. THE uniforms of the German marines will be altered shortly, so that the neck and chest, which have heretofore remained bare, will be covered, as is the case in other navies.

Y., who has become wealthy by dairying, says that he has fed cotton iseed meal to his cows for eight years, the first four in connection with other grains and after that pure, except while the cows were dry and on coarse fodder they were given wheat bran and such grain as was produced oil the Jarm. As soon as the cows came in full milk they were given hay twice a day and three quarts of cottosi-seed nieal in the morning and two quarts at night. Tiie morning ration of meal was mixed wiirx six quarts of sweet, akinunednvlk. When at pasture they received twv quarts of meal a day. Following tl is practice he was able to keep 25 per <s mt. more cows and make 85 per cent, ix^re butter per cow than by any other grain wethod.
