M. Soule of the Texas Agricultural College, writes to the Texas Stock and Farm Journal that he has formulated the following rules for the proper care of dairy utensils: 1. Rinse out all vessels that have contained milk with luke warm water (70 to 80 degrees Fahr.) 2. If boiling water is first used It cooks or sets the milk on the surface of the tin, making It greasy in appearance, and to the touch. A coating thus formed increases from time to time and this may be the first cause of abnormal fermentations that occur later. 3. A little sal soda added to. the wash water has a beneficial effect. It la an alkali and is useful in "cutting" the greasy substance so often seen on Improperly washed vessels. 4. A vessel is clean when no greasy appearance is apparent to the eye nor to the touch when the hand is passed over the surface. 6. After the condition noted In four is secured by "thorough scrubbing," Invert the cans over steam jet and sterilize them with hot steam for five minutes. Nearly all fermentations in milk are due to the action of bacteria. These can be best destroyed by the use ot stoani, fresh air, and sunshine. As many of them can successfully resist the action of steam for several minutes It Is necessary to expose milk utensils to its action for some time. 6. Never use rags to cleanse vessels used in the dairy. They are simply hotbeds for the breeding of undesirable germ life. 7. Steam, in addition to destroying germ and fungus growth aids in drying the cans, thus preventing the formation of rust and obviating the use of cloths to dry the several vessels. . 8. It rust or accretions nave formed on tins they should be removed at once by using sand-soap, sapolio, gold dust, etc. 9. "Soured" cans may be sweetened by boiling thoroughly with sal soda and sterilizing. If a can has open seams and has become badly tainted it will be difficult to make it sweet again. In such a case it is better to abandon it altogether and secure properly constructed new utensils. 10. To cleanse hand towels that may be used by operators in the dairy, boil in sal soda water. 11. Where wood floors are used any grease may be removed by the use of a little concentrated lye. Never use lye about tins. 12. Dairy utensils, should have the fewest number of seams possible and those present should be "smooth soldered." 13. Wooden pails should not be used to hold milk for reasons that are apparent. 14. All utensils should be exposed to the free action of air and sunshine. For this purpose a shelf may be constructed in front of the milk house on which the vessels may be placed to drain and dry. 15. In our opinion the trouble with rust on cans, etc., experienced by many dairymen in this state is largely due to the presence of salt in the air and especially is this true in the vicinity of the gulf breszes. It. Charcoal Is necessary, too, for good health in fowls, and this Is especially true as regards laying ducks. They will eat quantities of It, almost as much as will pigs. It is eaten greedily by fattening ducks, also. Cleaning the Sheep Honse. We feed mainly In open or well ventilated sheds and barns, using both portable and stationary racks, writes J A.

Sheep are given liberty in yards or fields every fair or pleasant day. We bed our stables freely to absorb moisture and liquid manure, and also to encourage the sheep to lie down and "take it'easy" at will, by keeping the stable dry and clean. Our sheep go into winter quarters about Nov. 20, with clean well littered stables. We clean out the stables about Jan. 1, Feb. 15 and after that every two or three weeks as the weather permits. Why? Well the sheep is the roost tasty and cleanly as well as the most sensitive ot all our domestic animals and is quite particular Indeed, when allowed himself to choose his food and quarters. To meet his taste and keep him comfortable nnd happy is to court thrift and an economical consumption of food. Where we use stationary racks much manure serves to raise the ground floor, leaving the racks too low for comfortable or convenient feeding. Here in Northern Ohio our winters are long and notable for sudden changes in temperature and we seldom have more than two or three weeks of solid winter weather without a "thaw" and usually when the temperature moderates, the barometer falls and we have wet or damp weather. These mild damp spells start the manure to "heat-, ing" or "fermenting" especially when much straw or litter is mixed with it, and I have seen whole flocks of sheep standing out in a steady rain for a whole day, in preference to shelter amidst the fumes and gases, over a pile of heating manure. The "smell" of fermenting manure is not only very distasteful to the sheep, but renders quite unpalatable the food that is permeated by it. Sheep closely housed and stand- Ehud was a ruler in Israel. He was left-handed, and, what was peculiar about the tribe of Benjamin, to which he belonged, there were in it seven hundred left-handfid men. and, yet, so dexterous had they all become in the use of the left hand, that the Bible says at a hair's- Well, there was a king by the name of Eglon, who was an oppressor of Israel. He imposed upon them a most outrageous tax. Ehud, the man of whom I first spoke, had a divine commission to destroy that oppressor. He came, pretending that he was going to pay the tax, and asked to see King Eglon. He was told he was In the summer-house, the place to which the king retired when it was too hot to sit in the palace. This summer-house was a place surrounded by flowers, and trees, and springing fountains, and warbling birds. Ehud entered tho summerhouse and said to King Eglon that he had a secret errand with him. Immediately all tho attendants were waved out of the royal presence. King Eglon I rises up to receive the messenger. Ehud, the left-handed man, puts his left hand to his right side, pulls out a dagger, and thrusts Eglon through until the haft went in after the blade. Eglon falls. Ehud comes forth to blow a trumpet of liberty amidst the mountains of Ephraim, and a great host is marsh*vl&d, and proud Moab submits to the conqusi-or, and Israel is free. See, O Lord, let all thine enemies perish! So, 0 Lord, let all thy friends triumph! I learn first from this subject the power of left-handed men. There are some men who, by physical organization, have as much strength in their left hand as in their right hand, but thero is something in the writing ot this text which implies that Ehud had some defect in his right hand which compelled him to use his left. Oh, the power of left-handed men! Genius is often self-observant, careful of itself, not given to much toil, burning incense Poultry Illntn. From Farmers' Review: A question frequently asked is "What is the best book on poultry matter that I can get, and where can it be bought?" There are several good books, but it is impossible to cover even the main points at any length, in one hook. I always answer "there is no best," for what Is best for one purpose is not for another. For information on every day matters, the various poultry Journals and the poultry departments in the farm papers are much better than poultry books in my opinion; and if one Is altogether for utility the departments in farm papers are ahead of any poultry Journals I have seen, except one. For fanciers, of course, the books and papers devoted altogether to fancy breeding are the ones needed. Books on the subject give one or two persons' experience, as a rule, while the papers give various experiences, and of persons who just have common advantages, also tell of the way in which they have conquered difficulties and invented home conveniences. For my use every day I much prefer to depend upon papers than books. A few weeks ago a writer in Farmer's Review gave an experience with pounding crockery for fcrlt. I can't help but think those fowls had had access to a gravel or cinder pile, for in seven years of furnishing grit we never saw fowls refuse founded crockery unless they had just been supplied with it. If grit is neglected for a while, the egg yield first shows the effect by becoming much lees, then in a few more days some of the fowls act dumpish, and if not furnished with teeth at once, a serious case of indigestion results. We honestly believe that the greatest per cent of so called cholera IB nothing but lice, and the next largest per cent is indigestion caused by Jack of grit. Where fowjs have free range they pick up nearly all the grit they need, and especially if the soil ia gravelly, or if they can run along a brook; eyen then they need something sharper than gravel to grind tnelr feed, QrJt is as necessary for ducks ing on heating manure are otten afflicted with a humor of tho skin on bellies and fetlocks causing them to scratch or bite the wool off in patches. They also suffer frequently from a sore or fe- verert condition of the feet and joints of the feet, often resulting in a breaking down of the feet in large and heavy sheep. Catarrhal affections usually follow these conditions. If allowed the run of yards or fields in open weather and shut in at night on heated manure —the wet and heat combine to form "foot-scald" or a galled condition in cleft of the foot—of course it pays to avoid all of these conditions. Then we desire to save and apply the manure to our land in its best state, with least possible waste, which is of course, direct from the stables. By hauling often the manure is never "burnt" or "caked" and we get the hulk of the season's "making" out on the land before the frost is all out and the weather breaks "P. Stnrtine Klglit. If you are about to make your first start in the poultry business this year you will save yourself a good deal of future disappointment if you decide to begin with first class stock, says Poultry Keeper. This does not mean that you should buy the highest scoring birds that you can buy at a fancy price. The highest scoring birds do not invariably prove the best breeders. But start with birds which would be recognized as fine specimens of the breed anywhere. They will cost perhaps double what stock of medium quality could be bought for, but you will be paid for tho extra expense a dozen times over the first year that you have them on hand. Beginners make a serious error in buying stock ot low grade with the purpose in view of breeding up. Buy something which has already been bred up. You can far better afford to pay someone else for the work which he has done in that direction than to undertake to do it yourself. A person can spend a good many years of his life in trying to breed up, and then fall below the standard which others will place in his hands for a few dollars above the cost of the stock which he started with. 98 for dry land fowls, but th,ey 4a ftot .require as much, gfcarp grjt: gravel and sand h^ng ft ji that 1 8 necep- e«ry, unless you f>ed tbem.wfcpljy pn earn, We thjnk the reasojj s\inany Varying Richness of Mill:, Some interesting particulars are given concerning the butter production quality of the evening and morning milkings at the Geelong Show, as the result of the testings for the best dairy cow. Altogether, thirteen cows competed. A remarkable difference in quality is shown between morning and evening's milk. The average quantity of milk computed per test to make one pound of buiter from the day's total test was 22.18 pounds; the ratio for the morning's milk was 31.23, and the evening only 13.84 pounds milk for each one pound of butter. The morning's milk from the thirteen competing cows weighed 357 pounds and contained 11.43 pounds of butter; the night's milk weighed 209^ pounds and contained 14.11 pounds of butter. The night's milk, on the average, was in this test considerably more than twice as rich as that of the morning. The testing waa conducted by Mr, R. Crowe, of the Agricultural department-vine Leader, It is essential that confined fowls be supplied w)th plenty of gravel, Jnee.ctB are not 8Q hard to fight when we know their ways. to its own aggrandizement; while many a man, with no natural endowments, actually defective in physical and mental organization, has an earnestness for the right, a patient industry, an all-consuming perseverance, which achieve marvels for the kingdom of Christ. Though left-handed, as Ehud, they can strike down a sin as great and imperial as Eglon. I have seen men of wealth gathering about them all their treasures, snuffing at the cause of a world lying in wickedness, roughly ordering Lazarus off their doorstep, sending their dogs, not to lick his sores, but to hound him off their premises; catching all the pure rain of God's blessing into the stagnant, ropy, frog-inhabited pool of their own selfishness—right-handed men, worse than useless—while many. a man with large heart and little purse, has, out of his limited means, made poverty leap for joy, and started an influence that overspans the grave, and will swing round and round the throne of God, world without end: Amen., Ah, me! it is high time that you left- handed men, who have been longing for this gift, and that eloquence, and the other man's wealth, should take your left hand out of your pockets. Who made all these railroads? Who set up all these cities? Who started all these churches, and schools, and asylums? Who has done the tugging, and running, and pulling? Men of no wonderful endownrnents, thousands of them acknowledging themselves to be left-handed, and yet they were earnest, and yet they were determined, and yet they were triumphant. But I do not suppose that Ehiid, the first time he took a sling in his left hand, could throw a stone at a halr's- breadth, and not miss. I suppose it was practice that gave him the wonderful dexterity. Go forth to your spheres of duty, and be not discouraged if, in your first attempts, you miss the mark. Ehud missed it. Take another stone, put it carefully into the sling, swing it around your head, take better aim, and the next time you will strike the center. The first time a mason rings his trowel upon the brick he does not expect to put up a perfect wall. The first time a carpenter sends the plane over a board, or drives a bit through a beam, he does not expect to make perfect execution. The first time a boy attempts a rhyme, he does not expect to chime a "Lalla Rookh," or a "Lady of the Lake." Do not be surprised if, in your first efforts at doing good, you are not very largely successful. Understand that usefulness is an art, a science, a trade. There was an oculist performing a very difficult operation on the human eye. A young doctor stood by and said: "How easily you do that; it don't seem to cause you any trouble at all." "Ah," said the old oculist, "it is very easy now, but I spoiled a hatful of eyes to learn that." Be not surprised if it takes some practice before we can help men to moral eye-sight, and bring them to a vision Of the Cross. Left-handed men, to the work! Take the Gospel for * sling, and faith and repentance for the $mpotb etone from the brook; take sure aim, Qqd dirfcct the weapon, and grest Qollaths will .tumble before you. When Qarlbaldi was going out to battle, he told his troops what Don't think your ideas are going to waute ^ them to do, and after he had they said, "Well, general, what are you going to give us for all this? "Well," he replied, "I don't know what else you will get, but you will get hunger, and cold, and wounds, and death. How do you like it?" His men stood before him for a little while In silence, and then they threw up their hands and cried, "We are the men! we are the men!" The Lord Jesus Christ calls you to his service. I do not promise you an easy time in this world. You may have persecutions, and trials, and misrepresentations, but afterward there comes an eternal weight of glory, and you can bear the wounds, and the bruises, and the misrepresentations, if you can have the reward afterward. Have you not enough enthusiasm to cry out, "We are the men! We are the men!" * * * I learn from this subject that death comes to the summor-house. Eglon did not expect to die in that fine place. Amidst all the flower-leaves that drifted like summer snow into the window; in the tinkle and dash of the fountains; in the sound of a thousand leaves fluting on one tree-branch; in the cool breeze that came up to shake feverish trouble out of the king's locks —there was nothing that spake of death, but there he died! In the winter, when the snow is a shroud, and when the wind is a. dirge, it is easy to think of our mortality; but when the weather is pleasant, and all our surroundings are agreeable, how difficult it is for us to appreciate the truth that we are mortal! And yet my text teaches that death does sometimes come to the summer-house. He is blind, and cannot see the leaves. He is deaf, and cannot hear the fountains. Oh, if death would ask us for victims, we could point him to hundreds of people who would rejoice to have him come. Push back the door of that hovel. Look at that little child—cold, and sick, and hungry. It has never heard the name of God but in blasphemy. Parents intoxicated, staggering around its straw bed. Oh, Death there is a mark for thee! Up with it into the light! Before those little feet stumble on life's pathway, give them rest. * * * Here is a father in mid-life; his coming homo at night is the signal for mirth. The children rush to the door, and thero are books' on the evening stand, and the hours pass away on glad feet. There is nothing wanting in that home. Religion is there, and sacrifices on the altar morning and night. You look in that household and say, "I cannot think of anything happier. I do not really believe the world is so sad a place as some people describe it to be." The scene changes. Father is sick. The door must bo kept shut. The death-watch chirps dolefully on the hearth. The children whisper and walk softly where once they romped. Passing the house late at night, you see the quick glancing of lights from room to room It is all over! Death in the summer house! Here is an aged mother—aged, but not infirm. You think you will have the joy of caring for her wants a good while yet. As she goes from house to house, to children and grandchildren, her coming is a dropping of sunlight in the dwelling. Your children see her coming through the lane and they cry, "Gradmother's come!" Care for you has marked up her face with many a deep wrinkle, and her back stoops with carrying your burdens. Some day she is very quiet. She says she is not sick, but something tells you you will not much longer have a mother. She will sit with you no more at the table nor at the hearth. Her soul goes out so gently you do not exactly know the moment of its going. Fold the hands that have done . so .many kindnesses for you right over the heart that has beat with love for you since before you were born. Let the pilgrim rest. She is weary. Death in the summer-house! Gather about us what we will of comfort and luxury. When the pale messenger comes he does not stop to look at the architecture of the house before he comes in; nor, entering, does he wait to examine the pictures we have gathered on the wall; or, bending over your pillow, he does not stop to see whether there is color in the cheek, or gentleness in the eye, or intelligence in the brow. But what of that? Must we stand forever mourning among the graves of our dead? No! No! The people in Bengal bring cages of birds to the graves of their dead, and then they open tho cages, and the birds go singing heavenward. So I would bring to the graves of your dead all bright thoughts and congratulations, and bid them sing of victory and redemption. I stamp on the bottom of the grave, and it breaks through into the light and the glory of heaven. The ancients used to think that the straits entering the Red Sea were very dangerous places, and they supposed that every ship that went through those straits would be destroyed, and they were in the habit of putting on weeds of mourning for those who had gone on that voyage as though they were actually dead. Do you know what they called those straits? They called them the "Gate of Tears." I stand at the gate of tears, through which many of your loved ones have gone, and I want to tell you that all are not shipwrecked that have gone through those straits into the great ocean stretching out beyond. 'The sound that comes from tha other shore on still nights when we are wrapped in prayer makes me thinl that the departed are not dead.

What, my riends, if every winter had not its spring, and every night its day, and jvery gloom its glow, arid, every bitter now its sweet hereafter? If you have been on the sea, you know, as the ship passes in the night, there is a phosphorescent track left behind it; and ns the waters roll up they toss vith unimaginable splendor. Well, across this great ocean of human .rouble Jesus walks. Oh, that in the jhosphorescent track of his feet we might all follow and be illumined! There was a gentleman in a rail car who saw in that same car three passengers of very different circumstances. The first was a maniac. He was carefully guarded by his attendants; his mind, like a ship dismasted, was beating against a dark, desolate coast, from which no help could come. The train stopped, and the man was taken out into the asylum, to waste away, perhaps, through years of gloom. The second passenger was a culprit. Tho outraged law has seized on him. As the cars jolted, the chains rattled. On his face were crime, depravity and despair. The train halted, and he was taken out to the penitentiary, to which he had been condemned. There was the Miird passenger, under far different circumstances. She was a bride. Every hour was as gay as a marriage bell. Life glittered and beckoned. Her companion was taking her to his father's house. Tho train halted. Tho old man was there to welcome her to her new homo, and his white locks snowed down upon her as he sealed his word with a father's kiss. Quickly we fly toward eternity. We will soon be there. Some leave this life condemned culprits, and they refuse a pardon. Oh, may it be with us, that, leaving this fleeting life for the next, we may find our Father ready to greet us to our new home with him forever! That will be a marriage banquet. Father's welcome!

"A friend of mine," says the canon, "once shared the box seat ,with the driver of the stage coach in Yorkshire, and, being a lover o£ horses, he talked with the coachman about his team, admiring one horse in particular. 'Ah, 1 said the coachman, 'but that 'oss ain't as good as he looks; he's a scientific 'oss.' 'A scientific horse!' exclaimed my friend. 'What on earth do you mean by that?' 'I means, 1 replied Jehu, 'a 'oss as thinks he knows a deal more nor he does.' " A soldier who served in Cuba re- ates that one night, after a march, a ew of the boys pitched their tents lose to the tent of an officer of anther company. The boys were talk- ng quite loudly, as taps had not been ounded. "Hush up out there!" shout- d the officer, angrily. "Who are you?" iskecl one of the boys. "I'll show you vho I am if I come out there!" was he answer. The talking continued, ind out came the officer. His anger was great, and he threatened to report he men to their colonel, winding up vith, "Don't you know enough to obey an officer?" "Yes," replied one of the' )oys, "and we should have obeyed you you had had shoulder-straps on •our voice." When the lord mayor of Dublin presented to Charles Stuart Parnell from he Irish people the Parnell tribute, lot less than $185,000, his lordship naturally expected to make a speech. The ord mayor having been announced, says Barry O'Brien in his biography of the Irish leader, he bowed and began: 'Mr. Parnell " "I believe," said Mr. Parnell, "you have got a check for ine." The lord mayor, somewhat surprised at this interruption, said, "Yes," md was about to recommence his speech, when Parnell broke in: "Is it made payable to order and crossed?" The lord mayor again answered in the affirmative and was resuming the discourse, when Parnell took the check, folded it neatly and put it in his waistcoat pocket. This ended the interview. BURIED CITIES. Many of us, no doubt, often wonder how it is possible for the sites of great cities to be covered many feet deep with heaps of debris and earth, so that after two or three thousand years the levels of the original streets can be reached only by excavation. The explanations vary with the localities. The lower portions of Rome have been filled up by the inundations of the Tiber; the higher by the decay, destruction or burning of large buildings. The ancient builders rarely took pains to excavate deeply, even for a lavge structure. When Nero rebuilt Rome he simply leveled the debris and erected new houses on the ruins of the old. Earthquakes are responsible for much of the destruction wrought round the shores of the Mediterranean, for there was a current superstition that an earthquake came as a special curse on a place, and after one of. these visitations the locality was often totally deserted. In places of rich soils earthworms bring to the surface an Irich or two of ground every year, while the winds, bearing clouda ot dust, contribute their share to the work of burying tie ruins of deserted cities. orphanage! oh, when will the day o sorrow be gone?
