New Ono Can Be Had Whenever There Is Occasion for Use. I have noted hundreds of smoke- louses, from the hollow log to the elegant brick affair, ranging in price from dollar or two to a hundred or two dol- :ars; and have seen nothing in my experience that would compare favorably, jithor in utility or economy, with the kind I invented and have used for years. It is easily constructed and so cheap that any family can have a new clean one every time there is occasion for use. A large clean sugar or salt barrel is placed on a box that is wide enough for the barrel to -stand on clear of the edges of box and twice as long (or more) as wide, and eight to twelve inches high.

"My son has been badly afflicted with a fearful and threatening cough for several months, and after trying several prescriptions from physicians which failed to relieve him, he has been perfectly restored by the use oi two bottles of Bo- AnEpiscopalschee's German Syrup. I can recom- Rector. mend it without hesitation." Chronic severe, deep-seated coughs like this are as severe tests as a remedy can te subjected to. It is for these longstanding cases that Boschee's German Syrup is made a specialty. Many others afflicted as this lad was, will do well to make a note oi this. J. F. Arnold, Montevideo, Minn., writes: I always use German Syrup for a Cold on the I/ungs. I have never found an equal to it—far less a superior. ® G. G. GREEN, Sole Man'fr, Wwdlmiy.NJ.

Strong wire nails are to bo driven through from inside close to top of barrel. Place the barrel on. the box oyer the holes and chink tight with clean clay niud around the bottom of barrel. Box stands on the ground. Hang your ohams on the wire nails, some with short string, others with long ones, if you wish to utilize all the space in the barrel. Place a strong clean paper or canvas over the top of the barrel and enough gunny sacks or blankets cun be added to keep the smoke in. A depression should bp made in the ground under the front end of the box, so that when the fire is made up on a piece of sheet or tin, the whole can be shoved under the box. Leave the fire close to the front end of the box. A half head of a barrel can be crowded down by the end of the box, closing the fire hole when the loose earth is banked around it. The cut shows the half head in place. With this contrivance you need only to have the smallest possible amount of fire and yet owing to the construction, the smoke is bound to be reasonably cool even if there is considerable fire. If one is afraid thieves will carry off hams, smokehouse and all, cut a hole in the front end of the box to put the fire through, and place the smokehouse on the cellar floor. Very little inconvenience is experienced from the smoke, if a little care is exercised in ventilating cellar.— Cor. Ohio Farmer. An Iniercfttlng Question Viewed frott Two Distinct Standpoints. Many of my fellow farmers have lit* tie faith in the assertion of the chemist that muck contains nitrogen, when air- dry, sometimes three times as much a* an equal built of average barn manure. A little consideration will convince uB that it would be more wonderful -should muck nr>t, contain nitrogen than that it docs. What is muck? The partially decomposed re.mains of trees, shrubs, grasses. Now, we all know that nitrogen entered into the composition of all of these when they were alive; why, thon, rshould it not exist in their remains? If not there, then it must either have passed off into the air or been washed down into the soil and disappeared in the drainage. To have disappeared in either of these ways, it would be necessary that the vegetable remains should be thoroughly decomposed; whereas, owing largely to the presence of water, decomposition has taken place to but a limited degree; they are in a partially carbonized condition, near tho humus stage, when the plant food elements, being in an inert condition, are securely held, being neither soluble in water nor volatile, and therci'orc liable to pass off into the air. The coldness of water-saturated soil is a check on the chemical changes which are necessary to change raw material into plant food. By draining such soils we remove the excess oi water, and by tillage we admit the air and warmth, when these chemical changes beg-in, which, helped by the fenncntive action of barn manure, or by that of potash in a caustic form, as it exists in unleached wood ashes, convert the inert nitrogen into plant food. Let us look at the matter from another standpoint. Muck and barn manure aro each but the residuum of plants, and more or less of the same plants. In their passage through the bodies of animals nothing is added to them; on the contrary, about one- fourth of their elements arc taken to sustain the vitality of the animals, promote their growth, and, in the case of cows, to make their milk. If, then, wo find nitrogen in the manure of animals, even after one-fourth of that which exists in the planto is absorbed into the bodies of the animals, it obviously follows that the same elements, plus the one-fourth, must "exist in the plants themselves before they are free. Different lots of muck vary considerably in the percentage of nitro-. gen they contain. This is explained by the fact that they difier in the degree of decomposition in the different deposits, and in part also by the difference in original composition of the different plants growing on the deposits.—J.

An Illinois subscriber asks how to graft apple and plum tr^ees, what kind of wax to use, and the best time to do the work. There are different modes of grafting, known as "wedge," "whip," side grafting-, 'etc. Wedge grafting- consists in sawing off tha stock to be -grafted and shaping the cion or graft like a wedge, splitting the sawed-off stock aa inch or two, and inserting- the wedge-shaped graft, being careful that the bark of the graft is exactly opposite the bark of the stock. If the stock is more than an inch in diameter it is customary to put in two grafts, one on each edge or side of the stock whero split. The whip graft is usod for small stocks that are the same thickness as the cions to be used. The stock and cion are cut with a similar slope (opposite), an inch or more in length. In order to keep them in place until the wax or wax cloth is put on it is well to cut a "tongue" in the center of each, so when placed together the cion will beep in place, thejxragues being interlocked. This system is mostly used in root grafting-. Whichever system of grafting is used it is necessary, after tho cion has been attached to the stock, to cover with some adhesive substance. The most common ia grafting wax, which may be obtained at most seed stores. If quantity is wanted it may be made in the following manner: Take four pounds resin, three pounds beeswax and two pounds tallow; heat and mix thoroughly. The object of the wax is to exclude air and water, so it must be applied over the end of the cut-off stock aa well as around the sides. It is often convenient to have the cloth which is wound about'the stalk and clou dipped in the wax and torn into atripa as used. Thin calico or muslin is tho proper cloth to use. • The'best time to do grafting- la In the spring before the leaves coino out.— Farm, Field and Stockman. FARM AND GARDEN. there will noyance the loosening of the tires in dry weather. The ^usual remedy is to have the blacksmith "cut" CONTRIVANCE TOB PEE- or shrink the TENTING SIIBISKAGE. tires. This pro- ess is often unsatisfactory because he weather may continue dry, and ren- .er the tire as loose as ever in a few weeks when it will need the same treatment again. By this time the circum- erence of the tire ia much less than it was at first, so that when the season is past the felloe will swell to its normal iza in winter. The effect is that either he tire is burst or the felloe is twisted and weakened. This difficulty may be irevented in most cases by saturating ,he felloes with hot linseed oil. Have a deep oblong pan made of galvanized ron of the shape represented in the >ketch. Heat the oil to the boiling point and pour it into the pan, having >reviously arranged the wheel and pan as shown. Turn the wheel around in he oil very slowly, so as to allow the nd of each spoke to be in the oil at east five minutes. The oil should be cept hot, and this can be done better if small oil stove is placed under the pan. After the felloe is saturated in jhis manner the wheel will be stiff and strong, and it will remain so. This ireatment will prolong the durability of ;he wheel'as well as prevent loosening of the tire.—American Agriculturist. a cow that gives plenty milk is not worth keeping, Quality baa quite as much to do with, profit as quantity.

As a precaution against storms and severe cold, all the coops for sitting lens should be placed ia the poultry- louse or under a shed. When the hens come off with their broods the coops should be carried into the barn during stormy weather, and they should be so constructed as to permit of carrying the aena and chicks in the coops. No matter how closely a hen may hover her chioks, she can not protect them in winter when they are exposed to se» vere cold, and the chicks will some- bim»s become chilled during the day when they are picking up bits outside of th* coop; All coops for henis with broods should be well littered with cut hay, and every care used to have them aa warm as can be. When the hen is sitting-, hemest should be in a ware place and her food placed where aha can reach it without being compelled to go very far from the nest.—Farm and Fireside. Is Full Feeding Exhaiutlve? There is a general belief among farmers that cows fed by milkmen on brew- era' grains one or two years are not thereafter good for much. The reason for thia seems to be that the action is a fattening one, and the cow is made toe fat for breeding, or, indeed, any use, except for the shambles. To reduce the cow in flesh she must be in some way stinted in food, and it is this,rathei than exhaustion from milk production, that makes such cows unprofitable tc continue as milkers. The evil mighl be remedied by feeding enough beeti or other roots to greatly increase th« milk yield, and prevent the grraijj ratioi from making the cow fatten instead oi continuing to give Rural Wojri& How many people there are who regard the coming of winter as a constant state of siege. It seems as if the elements sat down outside the walls of health and now and again, led by the north wind and his attendant blasts, broke over the ramparts, spreading colds, pneumonia and death. Who knows when the next storm may come and what its effects upon your constitution may be ? The fortifications of health must be made strong.
