BUS M01NES; ALGO^i 1OWA V 1899 IHB FARM AND HOME, Up-tp-Date Farming in the United States. Stabling aiid feeding Cowi. As the time has come for the assignment of the dairy herd to its winter quarters it may not be out of place to call attention to some of the requisites la. the arrangement of the stable and In the Method of feeding, says Mirror and Farmer. Upon these two matters the profitableness of the dairy largely depends as well as the healthfulness bf the herd and the healthfulness of the product. Neglect at the start means . continued neglect through the winter and dissatisfaction and disgust with the dairy business while attention to important details renders dairying a Pleasant and profitable occupation. The first thing to do before cattle are confined to their winter quarters is to thoroughly renovate and disinfect the etablca. Although they may have been used to stable cows at night during the summer they should be subjected to a carcftil cleaning and disinfection. A coat of whitewash will bo inexpensive and will add to the healthfulness of the stable. Above all things in the management of the stable see that it is properly ventilated and lighted. All the serious infection of herds from tuberculosis can be directly traced to failure to give attention to the matter of ventilation and 'light. If the stable 3s closed in by being boarded up In front there should be a ventilator provided for every other section, at least, and windows should be liberally provided in every section. An exchange, in discussing this subject, assigns every cow her place, and gently but firin- ky insist that she occupy it. The bed- 'ding, absorbents and disinfectants 'should be provided in abundance and In ample time to be sure that all are quite dry. Use no rotten material under a cow, no rotten straw, no damp earth or sawdust. In order of efficiency the best absorbents are peat, spent tanbark, sawdust, wheat straw, forest 3eaves, and dry earth. If earth alone is used, 30 to 40 pounds—a big shovel- ful—is needed daily. If straw, nine or ten pounds, or less if cut short. A good combination is five or six pounds 'of straw and ten or twelve of earth. An excess of bedding or litter is undesirable. If the lloor on which the cow lies is dry and not cold very little is needed for true bedding. Its true use is as an absorbant, and if more than is necessary is used it makes the manure bulky and reduces its value. Experiments With Itoup. Bulletin 152 of the North Carolina Experiment Station gives a report of some of the experiments carried on in the treatment of sick fowls. We publish the following on roup: . December 18. Three Plymouth Rock cockerels with slight colds, discharging at nostrils only; thin in flesh; were placed in coops in a warm room; nos- .Irils were cleaned daily and two drops <tJ»inphor oil inserted; also gave a two. r grain quinine pill daily. There was no ;percetptable change up to the 25th. They .had beea fed on regular morning mash at 7 a. m. At night cracked corn was -given, all they could cat up clean. December 26 discontinued using camphorated oil and quinine, and began bathing ."heads dally with kerosene oil and addling one ounce pepper to each quart of > soft feed. A change for the better was •noticed V the eve of the 27th. Next «day 'being quite cold they seemed '•^Tbopy, but ate their food quite well. fThis latter treatment was continued till January 10, 1898, when they were released in good health, but still thin in flesh. No return of the disease afterwards. Weights as follows: When cooped, 5.6, 5.4, 6,. When released, 5.9, B.15, C.8. Oct. 17, 1897. An Indian Game pullet, from miscellaneous yard, contracted a deep cold, which caused heavy discharge from nostrils and her throat to 'be filled with slime, so much, In fact, *hat she could breathe only with great difficulty. She was cooped at once; nostrils cleaned and camphorated oil Inserted; her throat was thoroughly awabbed with kerosene oil daily, but did not improve; 25th gave one tea- 'epaonful salts; 20th, bowels very loose; 28th much better, throat being free from any slime, and discharge at nostrils had discontinued. I then placed two more pullets in same cage affected in same manner, but not as far advanced. Applied to throat and nostrils kerosene daily. During the whole period they were fed just as if at liberty, supplying, of course, grit and green food. All were released Nov. 10, being in good health. November 17, 1897. An Indian Game coc,ker'el running in miscellaneous yard was missed, and after a search was found under the feed room, with "both eyes closed, face badly swollen A very offensive odor from nostrils was moUceable at a distance of four feet. He was very much emaciated, and so weak he could scarcely stand. A coop, was .prepared and placed In office near the glove, and ft^er giving him a teaspoon- fujl of Epsom salts, his head was washed dftlly for four days with strong salt " jiwater. A two-grain quinine pijl was given daily until November 22. As be * (pQUld not see to eat for the first six ' days he was fed four times daily on a ^ jBjgaJi quantity of morning feed.

By evening his eyes were again watering badly, which proved that he was turned out in the cold too early. Re- cooped him, and on December 11 released him in good condition. His weight when cooped was 3.2 and -when released was 4 pounds. This cockerel had been roosting under feed room where the -winds could strike him, Wynn (lottos. The Wyandottes of American origin are quite worth one's attention. They are one of the newest breeds, but they are becoming rapidly known, as their many good qualities have been heralded abroad, says Nellie Hawks in 'Housekeeper." It takes time to bring any breed prominently to the front, jut the Wyandottes are a handsome and profitable fowl. Is there a breed that is not of the valuable and desirable kind? We believe not. All have their good qualities, and as an editor wrote lately, "I have no desire to say a word against any breed o£ fowls on earth except the mongrel, though it seems that some of our editors have." Nor have I the least desire to cry down extremely even the mongrel, though I must say that I can see no good reason for perpetuating ;he mongrel race. The Standard recognizes but three varieties of Wyandottes (the old edition I refer to), the White, Silver and olden. The new Standard, which is not yet off the press, will recognize also the Buff Wyandotte; it probably will also recognize the Black and the Columbian, which is the very latest. Standard weight for the Wyandotte s eight and one-half pounds for cock, even and one-half pounds for cockerel, six and one-half pounds for hen and five and one-half pounds for pullet. The comb is low, firm on the head, and always a rose comb. The legs of )oth Silver-laced and White Wyan- dottes are a bright yellow, and tho eyes should he a clear, bright bay. Of the White Wyandotte it is said that the pullets mature to the egg produc- ng age a month earlier than the farn- ly of Plymouth Rocks. They will bear a great deal of heavy feeding when preparing for market, and can be lushed or forced into marketable shape, and they have a preponderance of breast meat. They are good layers, ;ood sitters and good mothers. In all varities, fowls that give us the white, are greatly admired, and never seek long for full-recognition. The Silver-laced Wyandotte is likewise a beautiful bird, and in the show oom attracts much attention. They are hardy and quick feathering, and t is said to be no unusual thing for he pullets to begin laying at four and one-half months old. They are considered excellent winter layers, and all arieties of the noble breed are finding much favor. Iiitnrnntloniil roultry Kxhiblt. The United States Department of Agriculture has received notice li rough the Department of State from Douut Cassini, Russian ambassador, :hat the Russian Society of Bird Deal- srs will hold an international poultry exhibition at St. Petersburg from the 13th to the 28th of May, 1899. Exhibitors will be granted reduced rates for their exhibits on all Russian rail- •oads, and free entry for same on condition that they be exported from Russia within two months after the close of the exhibition. The exhibits are to consist of nine classes, as folows: Domestic birds; domesticated wild birds; pigeons; singing and exotic birds;. fattened poultry and killed fowl and game; products of poultry keeping; apparatus and accommodations for breeding, guarding, fattening and transporting birds; models of poultry-yards, incubators, etc.; medical, hygienic, antiseptic and feeding articles; and photographs, nests, stuffed birds, eggs, etc. Exhibitors will be required to pay an entrance fee for their exhibits before their arrival at St. Petersburg and to send notice of their intention to enter exhibits to the committee of organization of the International Poultry Exhibition, Fontanka, 10, Imperial Agricultural Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia. Diplomas of honor; gold, silver and bronze medals; honorable mentions, and objects of artistic value will be awarded as prizes. Feeding for Kygi. There is no doubt that egg-producing taxes the strength of the hens in cold weather, and in order to keep them in good health it is necessary to feed in two ways, says M. S. Nelson in The Poultry Tribune. One is to feed for heat and strength, and the other is' to supply the natural constituent; of which an egg is composed. Generally food that contains the egg constituents will have enough fat and heat- producing substances to answer both purposes. If not, food of this nature must be given in addition. To begin with, analytic chemists tell us that the white of an egg is composed of the al- kalies, potash and soda. The yolk contains a larger percentage of phosphoric acid and lime. The two together thus contain all of the above constituents The proportions of these ingredients are very different, however, but the chief Ming to t$ke note of ie the lime njtrpgen a$d phosj>h,orio acjg are by all Pdds in % greatest abundance Here we my £iye tfee.very mine i must feed to, tbe heas pro^pe an abuijdftBce of winter. This hjf M producing foods, nor to those that Field animal heat to resist the cold. Mow, green bones probably contain a larger proportion of egg ingredients than any one substance. They are all rich in phosphoric acid, albumen and phosphate of lime. When cut and pulverized by mills the chickens can digest and assimilate this material so sasily that it readily passes into the formation of egg shells. The work of elaborating shell for the eggs is thus made purely mechanical, and does not draw upon the bones and tissues of the liens. In addition to this the green bones help to make the inside of the shells, and when fed In the right quantity they produce excellent results. A mixed diet of other things must supplement the green bone food, and chief among these ingredients for producing eggs and heat and strength are oats, wheat, buckwheat and corn; this I prefer mostly cracked so it is not eaten so fast, generally scattered in litter BO the hens will have to scratch for it, as exercise is as essential for the general health of the hen as feed; also vegetables, clover, meat scraps, crusts of bread, etc. All of this variety helps ,he general strength of the birds and ,5lves them heat enough to resist cold. The hens that are laying should be Jvcn a liberal ration about one-half lour before retiring at night in litter, and they will go on the roost with their blood In good circulation and a :ull craw most of the time, some of them singing and apparently happy. I have one bird, a cock, that will nearly always start to singing when he sees ne coming with feed. In the morn- ng allow the chickens to roam around a little to pick up what they can find or scratch in the litter, then feed them a moderate breakfast and keep them n dry, comfortable quarters; nature II do the rest. ROMANCE OF THE WAE HOW AM OFFICER WAS COURf- MARTIALED. Inspection of Dairy Products^ The Secretary of Agriculture believes hat the existing system of government nspection and certification of meats and meat products for export may be xtended (with suitable modifications) 0 include butter, cheese and con- flensed milk for export from the Jnited States. He says: "The combined efforts of the government and of ommercial enterprise may succeed in he early establishment of a high repu- ation for American butter in desirable oreigu markets. But as soon as ac- ompllshecl, this becomes liable to be l«stroyed by the cupidity of those who, 1 adlng on this reputation, flood the ;ime market with butter of low grade, / it still entitled to export and sale as produce of the United States.' This ill disgust merchants and consumers ilike and reverse the reputation of our butter, just as the fine market in Great Britain for our cheese was recently uined by the quantity of low-grade and counterfeit cheese which was exported without being marked to show ts true character. "The remedy seems to lie in extend- ng and adapting the provisions of law •egarding the inspection of meats ex- lorted from this country so as to make hem apply to butter and cheese. The Brands of 'pure butter' and 'full-cream thceso' should then be afllxed by Unit- id States inspectors to such products jnly as are of a fixed minimum stand- rd of quality. Such precautions, duly egalized and properly executed, would lace the good butter and cheese of his country in foreign markets under he identifying label and guaranty of he United States government, leaving imilar merchandise of lower grade to find a place for itself,, upon its own merits. It should be borne in mind hat dairy products of Denmark ami Canada, which are the chief competi- ors of the United States in the mair- cets of Great Britain, bear the inspec- ,ion certificate and guaranty of qual- ty from their respective governments, ind thereby maintain a great comirzer- ial advantage. "Such a system of inspection is much tesired by the most reliable exporters, d the proposition has met with decided approval wherever considered by •Ur-mluded, Interested parties." Hoots for Fattening Litmus, Last year an experiment was undertaken at the Minnesota Experiment Station to determine the value of potatoes, mangels and sugar 'beets, respectively, as food factors In fattening lambs. The results showed that in feeding lambs potatoes compare favorably with mangels and sugar beets in producing increase in weight, but they are a more costly food than the other roots named; that, because of the greater cost of potatoes as compared with mangels and sugar beets, they should not be grown as food for lambs where the latter can be grown successfully; that, judging by the results obtained in this one experiment, sugar beets are a more valuable food for fattening lambs than either potatoes or mangels. Michigan Cheese XLaw.—Cheese must be made exclusively of milk or cream. Only cheese made from milk from which no cream has been taken can be sold as or branded, "Full Cream Cheese," or "Pull Milk Cheese." Cheese factories where milk or cheese is purchased of or contributed by three or more persons must register with the department, on or before April 1, of each year. Authorized brands bearing the words, "Michigan Full Cream Chee'se," may be obtained from the de* partment upon payment of fee of one dollar. Choosing Cows.—In the selection of cows for the dairy get those of the dairy type and breed; don't get beefy cows.

Many of the tragedies of the Spanish- American war will remain unwritten and many will probably never be told. For the soldiers of Spain the horrors of the war did not altogether cease with the declaration of peace. The story which I am about lo relate proves this. I knew of at least one gallant officer, who nad served his country well for many years, and whose reward was a sentence of ignominious death at the hands of his own countrymen. For aught \ know the execution of the decree may already have taken place. At any rate I saw him sail for Spain a hopeless and broken old man. The death sentence had already been passed upon him and at his own request he was going home—to die. I was in San Juan, Porto Rico, about a week before the evacuation. The streets and cafes were filled with Spanish officers. I found them to be both courteous and dignified. Yet there was much of pathos In their bearing. Like the French who contemplate the draped statue, representing Strasburg, in the Place de la Concord, and think of Alsace-Lorraine, so these men gazed fondly at Casa Blanco, once the resi- lence of Ponce do Leon, and thought sadly of their four centuries of possession. One of our officers volunteered one day to take me on a visit to Col. San Martin, who had commanded the Third battalion of the Spanish troops, and who was then a prisoner n the barracks. When I was told that he was under sentence of death for cowardice I was not predisposed to his favor. But when I saw the man and talked with him my feeling of revulsion Changed to one of great pity. The story of his disgrace is soon told. He was in command of the Spanish troops in several of the inte- •ior cities, and, being opposed by our ~leventh regulars, under command of ~ol. De Russy, he retreated from place ;o place without as much resistance as Ihe Spanish commander at the capi- :al thought a brave man should have made. As a matter of fact, his forces were entirely inadequate to cope with ours, ind the Spaniards were so out-general- ed by the United States troops that resistance was suicidal. Upon Col. San Martin's arrival at San Juan he was court martialed in a most theatrical manner,, by order of Gen. Macias, gov- COL. SAN MARTIN, ernor-general of Porto Rico, and! the outcome of it was that he was sentenced to be shot. The old colonel was too proud to show how keenly he felt the disgrace. He bowed to tho judgment of the- drum lead court, and had only one request lo make. If he must be shot, would the honor of shedding his last blood on the mother soil be refused Mm? He should like to die in Spain. Could the sentence not be carried out there instead af in Porto Rico, which was virtually in the hands of the enemy? The court deliberated. Yes, in view of his many years of meritorious service, his request would be granted. Then he was confined in the barracks to await the sailing of the transport for Spain. I could not help admiring the man's fortitude. He made a brave show of dignity, but I could see that his heart was breaking. He was a fine old man of sixty, straight as an arrow, and full of that restless energy which even years can not rob the born soldier of. His smooth-shaven face was full of character. It was a rugged, strong face, combining the determination of the soldier with the tenderness of a sympathetic nature. We had a long talk, of a rambling character, and it was with some trepidation that I broached the subject of his own misfortune. His eyes became moist, and his reserve melted away. He recounted to me his many years of military service, of how he had fought for his country, and how finally "Spain had cast him away, like a battered old hulk that had outlived its useful ness." 'He was in full uniform, and five medals hung from his breast, medals that had been awarded him for brav ery. I committed, the solecism of ad miring one of these which hung separately, the other four being attached to one bar, T 0 express admiration for anything in the possession of a Spanish gentleman is wrong, as I learned subsequently. Etiquette demands that the article which hajj been admlrec must be presented to the person who bag admired Jt. Tbe next day I W as somewhat to receive at m^ b,otel a more than ever *~* -pathos of the old man's P osl " on - A In the meantime I had met quite a number of our own officers, and the caoe of Col. San Martin was a matter o?1requent conversation. Finally a scheme to aid him was broached and I was permitted lo assist in carrying it ° l ietters were received from Gen. Brooke, Col. DeRussy and other officers prominent in the Porto Wean campaign, explaining in minute detail all .he military manoeuvres and showing he futility of any course other than that pursued by Col. San Martin. These letters were gladly furnished, for the fate of the old Spanish • a - rior had made a deep impression upon our officers. , On Oct 22 Col.

SAN MARTIN'S PRISON. Despite the fact that he was armed with the letters from the American officers, I know he felt his case to be utterly hopeless. I could see it in his ! ace as he bade me farewell before joing aboard the vessel that was to bear him to Spain. I had further evidence of It when I returned to my hotel. There I found a bundle awaiting me, and- on opening it I found the old colenel's gold-braided coat, with the 'our remaining medals still pinned upon its breast. I had been enabled to do him a service and he hoped I would do him the honor to accept his coat and medals. This was all. But it clearly showed that he felt he was 'oing home to die the death of a traitor. The majority of the medals worn by officers in the Spanish army axe pur- hased by themselves. The government has an economical system of imply giving for conspicuous bravery i certificate entitling the bearer to vear a medal of a certain degree, and ho oflicer, if ho is wealthy enough, purchases it. This veteran of Spain goes back to his native land to be made a scapegoat of by his superior officers at San uan. Our own officers in Porto Rico are anxiously hoping to hear that .heir efforts in his behalf have borne rood fruit, and that the sentence of .he court-martial may be averted. But, in view of what has transpired, .hey fear their hopes will prove in vain. They have their own -way of doing things in Spain, and even now the bones of tho old warrior may be uouldering in a dishonored grave. PATRICK GORAN. Ponce, Porto Rico.

They wear the scapula of the order, but no* outwardly, and the only sumptuary obligation imposed upon the women of this Third Order is tbe avoidance of any undue luxury as regards dress.
