The hay crop of Minnesota tins sen- sou was remarkable for abundance and good quality! A little was shipped di- vect to England. Forage of all sorts is Very cheap. At present the farmer is gettitffe but 20 cents a bushel for oats, s;5.oO a ton for upland prairie hay, and $0 for, timothy.

A correspondent Of the Ucrinautown Telegraph, gives his opinion of the difficulty with many farmers in his end of the country as'to why farmers have a hard time to get along, and it is worth a careful study. His ideas are as follows: "There is being so much said iu the country about hard times and the scarcity of money, and as everybody has a cause and knows a remedy, I thought I would write to tell your readers what I think is 1he cause. Tlio trouble is we buy morn than we pro- duel? There is too much flour and bacon "shipped hero, every year. Tho things wo ought to make at home wo aro, buying. "We let our timber rot and buy our plow slocks, singletrees, axo handles, hoe handles and fencing. ,-Wo throw away our ashes and buy soap and axle grease. "We give away our beef hides ami buy hame strings and slice strings. "We let our manure go to waste ami buv guano. "We buy garden seed in the spring and cabbage iu the winter. "We let our lauds grow up m weeds and buy our brooms. _ "We let the wax out of our pine and gum trees go to waste and buy chewing gum for our. children. • . -We build school houses and hire teachers and scud our children off to be educated. ' „, «« "We land a five-cent iish with a $* ushing rod. "We send a fifteen-cent boy out WITH a $20 gun and a $4 dog to kill birds. "We raise dogs and buy wool.

From over across the ocean—at, the opening of au agricultural science .10 tbc-sf Ideas, \yhi'-h are Poultry WO<CH. For health, feed plenty of outs; for fat, feed plenty of corn. Draughts nre largely responsible f»r soro eyes and swelled necks. Tlie'old hens will bo tho lirst to lay now aud the lirst. to got broody. A cockerel mated to large liens usually gives large and vigorous chickens. The full-grown goose should average a pound of feathers during the season. Dry leaves lor the hens to scratch iu will afford tliem the necessary exorcise. Procure new blood every year if you would prevent your flocks "running down." Ducks should commence laying the last of January or tlie beginning of February. Chickens fat.ten faster on cooked than on raw food because it is more readily digested. Winter eggs are profitable! and it will pay to obtain them by proper caiv and feeding. A dull, sunken, eye shows defective nutritive power and lack of construction and vigor. If hens arc fed on nothing but com and wheat they will cease laying after a time. Because turkeys nre good fora gore it will not pay to let them go without proper feeding. Tho second year a lien only lays half t3io number of eggs that she.does the first year. Ono pound of cut meat and bone is considered the proper daily allowance for sixteen liens. Bran for chicks should always be scalded aud allowed to stand for a tune in order to soften. Anything in tlie vegetable Hue, provided, it is sweet and clwui, will form acceptable food. Ti; is not desirable to give too much ml pepper and ginger to the poultry. Once or twice a week is suiiicient. A good brcird is not alone sufficient to' make money. Good care, good food and good quarters are also uwessary. Attfiftftl *epoftV>( JJtentfen&tit' C. TJ.

Two of the girls beat the world's woman's record for tree, climb- itur, but tlie other emptied her gun at the animal, disabling it, then loaded and fired again, until the bear lay dead. Some days ago a dog, while chasing a fox near Plymouth, N.
