They use it to wash windows with and let it dry on the glass, which insures it against breakage by base balls and baser boozers. miles from Ackley, which fact leads the Ackley World think that its town tnuv be made ft fi-elght division on that rotid in the near future.

Tlio Eltuore Shops to bo Put at Blue Knrth City-Alffona I/lne to go to Belle Plnluo Instead of Tninn. Blue Earth is now getting ready to be the main division point (in the north lines of the Northwestern railroad system. They already have a rounfi house, machine shops, etc.—in tl minds. This is the way the Post figures it out: They are constructing one of the finest and most substanl/ial road beds that haye been built in this or any other section of the west. They have doubled the side track capacity of (ill the stations between hero and Bello Plaine, Iowa. It is given the appearance of being built for heavy traffic and lots of it. It seems certain that it is the intention of the company to send much of the Dakota passenger and freight traffic over this road. We iiro about the right distance from Belle Plnine for either a passenger or freight, division, or both. It being at the junction of the two roads thiit, though separately managed, are prnctically one great system, would miturully seem a (it.Ung place for a division." The Belle Plalne Herald has au Item of local iriturettt in this connection: Wo are informed by the best authority that the Chicago & North western intend to run a line from Gladbrook ovur to the now line of road now being built from Bollo Plaino to Blue Earth in order to save the hill between Tama and Gladbrook and will run all through trains from the North Iowa Division to Belle Plaine instead of Tamil. The same authority also says that n.n engine can pull ten more loads over this route which will be a good saving to th« company; further, that the shops at. Elmore, Minn., will be moved to Blue Earth at once nnd all traffic from the north will come over the new line and Blue Earth will be the end of the Belle Plaine division of the new road. -.

The be-ii is obliged to swallow grain whole, as it has no way to break it up before it enters the gizzard. There it is ground among the pebbles which will always be ftnind in a healthy bird's gizzard, which is 1 a collection of extremely powerful muscles. The gizzard also furnishes a most effective digestive agent called iugluvin, and which line several times as much digestive power as prepared from the stomach of the calf or the pig. Many people whose digestion is weak prefer ingluvin to pepsin to aid the change of their food into blood and fles'h. So long as food comes to the fowl's stomach only moderately fast there is not much danger that the stomach will be crop bound. Instinct teaches the hen to scratch white she is eating. She will do so if placed before a heap of whole grain, and also, if she has chicks, stop eating long enough to cluck and call them to it. It is not of ten that fowl become crop bound on grain unless cut clover is also largely eaten at the same time. The weight and solidity of the grain makes something for the gizzard to work on, and the food has solidity enoug-h to be forced through. Hence cut clover should form only a very small part of a fowl's ration. Neither should soft food be fed long as an exclusive diet. It also does not give the stomach enough to do, and thus weakens that organ from inaction. This is as often as any oilier th« cause of fowls becoming crop bound. It ia most common in fowls that have become very fat from high feeding, and which take but little exercise.—American Cultivator. NOTES FOR BEEKEEPERS. The executors of the estate of Asa G.

Sulphur will destroy the moth larvai in old combs. Use foundations to control the Bum ber of drones. With plenty of stores brood rearinj goes on rapidly. An apiary is best located on the south or east side of a slope. Worthless queens may be detected by the broods they produce. Bees should not be allowed to become entirely destitute of honey. We cannot expect straight combs to b« built in hives that are not plumb. Honey should never be heated to the boiling point; it destroys the flavor. Early in the spring is one of the very best times for moving the bees. The combs tlien are lig-ht and the colony the smallest of any time of the year. If the hives are resting directly on the ground it will produce dampness, which Is against the best welfare od the bees at this time.—St. Louis Republic. SERVES TWO PURPOSES.
