It there is not a greater demand for Deering machines than for any other make why is it that the Deering works employ over six thousand five hundred skilled mechanics—more than twice as many as any other reaper plant in the world? If Deering machines have not earned the right to universal approval why is it that the Deering works are increasing the output for 1899 by 50,000 machines as against the product of 1898? If Deering ball and roller bearings are not applied to binders and mowers in the only correct way why is it that competitors are at their wits' ends to make their machines as light draft as the Deering Ideals?

Julius Goldschmidt, consul general of the United States in Germany, concerning the horses that are used by the German army, says: The following report concerning horses for the German army is based on Information received from officers and from an experienced veterinary Burgeon who has for years superintended the purchase of horses for one of the Germany army corps. The so- called "remonte" horse markets, public and private, take place In the months of April to September in the parts of Germany where horses are plentiful, mostly in East and West Prussia, occasionally in Posen, Hanover, Hol- Btcin, and Meeklenberg, and, rarely, in the Alsace and the Rhine provinces. Private remonte markets are allowed to norse breeders, who have for years furnished a large and superior quota of animals for the army, nnd who can offer lots of from 20 to 80 good horses. Such private markets may even be held on the grounds of the horse breeders and occur mostly in East and West Prussia. In Lithuania proper there are more private than public markets. The buying Is done by five army commissariats, consisting each of one presiding officer, one to two assistant officers, one veterinary surgeon, and one secretary. The horses purchased are generally three years old, in exceptional cases four years. The former remain one year at the remonto depots before they are turned over to the regular service. There are no fixed rules as to the weight of tho horses, and when horses arc weighed in such places it Is on account of scientific food experiments or private Interests. Bult it is safe to say that full- breasted, compactly-built horses are used. They will average in weight about as follows: Artillery draft horses, 1,100 to 1,200 pounds, artillery saddle horses 900 pounds, cuirassier horses 1,000 to 1,100 pounds, Uhlan horses 900 to 1,000 pounds, hussar and dragon horses 800 to 900 pounds. The common run of horses for the line cavalry are bought at from $80 to $100, while the heavier horses for artillery run from $140 to $160, and the best horses, which are used for the Kurassier Garde regiments, are seldom bought under $200. This applies to the remonte commissariat's work. Officers, as a rule, ride East Prussian horses. Those that can afford it buy English blooded stock at fanoy prices. The best Prussian horse brings from $225 to $340. These are all however bought at an age of from 5 to 6 years and well trained, since tho Prussian horse is hardly fit for use before Its sixth year is concluded. English and Irish horses, which are largely bought In Hamburg, are, owing to the richer nourishment they receive on their native pastures when young, fit for use at the age of 'four to five years, and are less narvous, shy and excitable than the Prussian horses. The Irish horse is the easiest to ride under all circumstances, the early wholesome nourishment giving it a calmer and more docile temper. I have reason to believe that under the name of Irish stock many American horses are sold in Hamburg, as the description given of them closely resembles that of the American horse. It Would be well for the American horse breeders or horse dealers to correspond with large firms in Hamburg, such as the "English Stall" or the "Olde Stall," before entering largely in the shipping business. Alfalfa and Corn for Hogs—The farmers of the corn belt can get a good pointer on pig feeding from the alfalfa belt. I have seen a plf? that •was farrowed Sept. 20,1898, and raised on a ration two thirds of which was alfalfa hay. which is as large as any pig I can find in the corn belt farrowed in June, July or August. The nuptials of King Corn and Queen Alfalfa are announced to take place on my farm at an early date. The fourth cutting of alfalfa is the best hay for hogs in winter. This cutting Is done late in the fall and is raked immediately and shocked, thus curing without very much sun. The leaves and all are saved in a succulent condition, thus making a feed that Is relished by the pigs.—Homestead. Why Fresh Bones Make Eggs.—Tho different parts of ordinary market bones upon analysis were found to contain in abundance the ingredients which go to make up the grtwing chick, and in wonderfully close proportion, the different parts of the complete egg. The lean meat and gristle from the white of the egg, and about sixteen per ceut of the yolk. The marrow and other fat on the bones supply the remainder of the yolk. The lime phosphates In the bone yield all the necessary lime salts for the shell, and the requisite phosphates for thq interior of the egg.—A. 0. Pickering, <u Farm and Home. Oieo Prosecutions In Pennsylvania. —The butter trade of Philadelphia hag taken up the prosecution of the oleo dealers, and have already secured evidence of the violation of both the state and national law, and propose to push the suits to a conclusion. In the investigation fifty retail dealers have been found selling the stuff without even the formality of a government license. In every case they were sell- 'ng oleo as butter.—Ex. Ash is what is left when the combustible part of a feeding stuff is burned away. It consists chiefly of lime, magnesia, potash, soda, tron, chlorln, and carbonic, sulphuric, and phosphoric acids, and is used largely In making bones.

No matter how ill they feel, they drag themselves through the daily tasks and pile up trouble. This is heroic but a penalty has to be paid. A woman in New Matamoras, Ohio, MRS. ISABELL BKADFIEIJD, tells in the following letter how she fought with disease of the feminine organs until finally forced to take to her bed. She Bays: ••DEAR MRS. PINKIJAM—I feel it my duty to write to you .to tell you that I have taken Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and think there is no medicine in the world like it, I suffered for nine years, and sometimes for twelve weeks at a time I could not stand on my feet. I had female troubles of all kinds; backache, and headache all the time'." 1 Seven different doctors treated me. Some said I wonid have to go to the hospital and have an operation performed. But oh I how thankful I am that I did not, that I tried your Vegetable Compound instead, I cannot say too muck in its praise, nor thank you enough for what it has done for me. I want you to publish this in all the papers for the good, of other sufferers." The wives and mothers of America are given to overwork. Let them be wise in time and at the first indication of female trouble write to Mrs. Pink-, ham at Lynn, Mass., • for her ad vice. This advice is promptly given without charge. ,' The present Mrs. Pinkham's experience in treating female ills is unparalleled; for years she worked side by side with Mrs, Lydia E. Pinkham, and for sometime past has had sole charge of the correspondence department of h«r great business, advising and helping by letter as many us K hundred thousand ailing women during a single year.
