M E L V I N . STEELE . JOHNSON, E D I T O R S AND P R O P B \ £ T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 29. STABLE FLOOR DRAINAGE. Iron Gutters 'Which Curry tlic liquids Away as Fast as They Vail. In reply to the request of a reader for R plan for good stable drainage the Ohio Farmer illustrates and describes a method commended by F. W. Bauh in his book "IIow to Judge a'Horso." Fig. 1 in the first cut represents a stall 5 feet wide and 9£ feet long. £ J. D FLOOn WITH IKON GliTTKKS. C C C are tbree planks in front, laid crosswise of the stall. These are 14 inches wide, making 3}4 feet. B B arc two planks on each side of the stall, each 1C inches wide and C feet long. -Between these plaiiks are the drain gutters and lath, D being the drain and Jj the laths. These laths arc 2 inches thick, 8}£ inches wide nud G feet long. They are rabbeted out underneath three-sixteenths of an inch, so that the iron drains or gutters just fit under them. They are rabbeted up from the bottom 1J£ inches. The method of fixing the drains and laths is showii in the end view, second cut, Fig. 2, L being the lath, with gutter between. The laths are fastened down -by long screws, the heads well sunk in. They can bo removed easily, if desired, to renew the lath or make any repairs. The iron drain or gutter is shown in Fig. 3. G iu Fig. 1 is the rear gutter into which the liquids flow to be carried off. This gutter can bo made of cement. The iron drains are \ l /i FlG-3 END VIEW. LATHS -AND DRAIN. inches high, an inch wide inside, about one-eight inch thick aud 6 feet long, closed at the front or head end and opcu at the other. The laths and gutters project over the gutter G an inch or more. . The incline of the floor from manger to gutter should not be over three inches. The Maraden Process. The Marsden process consists iu sav- iug the waste of dry cornstalks. They tire ground. Tho cellulose- or pitli is then separated, leaving a residuum of ground meal. The ratio iu bulk is about one part of meal to one of cellulose. The ratio in weight is said to be seven paits or 'mote of meal to one of cellnlose. This dry meal has been feet to live stock for a long period at the ^Maryland experiment station. It proves to be equal to if not better than the best of hay in the production of meat and milk in combination with other food to make it complete--that is to say, used in the same maimer as hay is used as a part of a ration. The cellnlose will have a vast number of uses. The most conspicuous UFO ·will be in the construction of naval vessels. For this purpose it is compressed to 6rf pouuds to the cubic foot, iu ·which condition it will absorb 20 times its volume of water. For naval purposes it is made iuto large blocks, each of which is placed in n cell in the steel hull of the drip, uotably at the bow and stern, and between decks so as to protect the deck over the vital points of the ship, the center of the vessel being protected with steel plates. Such a vessel has great power of flotation. The center of gravity is altered so that the Etm deck has very much greater stability in action. It is claimed that such a vessel is uusiukable.--Country Gentleman. Olakiug Sugar From Beets.. Much is said nowadays in agricultural newspapers about making sugar frcm beets. The experience of France and Germany loug ago showed that this fan be done proiitably where labor is cheap enough. It is in this connection that American Cultivator says: "There is much laud mall our north eru states where good beets for sugar making can bo grown. In New York state, under the influence of a state bounty on beet sugar, several beet sugar factories have beeii started this year. "While the sugar making experiments- have been entirely successful it is not yet certain whether the sugar can b produced at a profit to the mauufactur ers. But as the price paid for tlie beets is only §5 per ton it is doubtful whethei many farmers who live near markets . can grow and haul their beets to the factories for the price. Farther from the factories there would be increased cost of transporting the beets to the places ·where the sugar is to be manufactured. The farmer who grows be'cts at this prico gives much labor and gets very little for it.'J Feuiiuiuu Curiosity. 'Henry, dear, wliat did they do with you when they initiated you into the Odd Fellows the other night!" "Why, I can't tell you that, Millie, as a inatter of course. I took a solemn pledge never to disclose it to anybody." (.Sobbing) "If--if anybody had-lad told roe this before we were-were married I wouldn't have believed itt (Suddenly f drying her tears) I'll get it out of you when you are asleep, Henry Phmiduffl You sea if I don't." Mis§ Charmynge--Don't you think I was meant for a business woman? Jack Hustler--No, 1 don't. I think you were meant for n business man.--Brooklyn Life. INDIRECT FERTILIZATION. !viu:h lIcndcTB Avnllxblo the Nntnrnl Supply of Existing IMaut Food. In spite of all that has been said aud written about direct and indirect fertilization there still exists a surprising amount of ignorance. Tho work of the experiment stations aud prominent agriculturists have brought out the facts in this Hue so plainly that it is a comparatively simple matter for any farm- ; cr to understand this subject without any trouble. The subject is treated ns follows in The Progressive South : | By direct fi-rtili/ation is meant the application of ceitain fertilizer materials which in themselves furnish needed nourishment to tho growing crop. Tho , plaut foods in which most soils aro de- liciuut and which it is customary to apply in tho form of commercial fertilizers are phosphoric acid, potash and nitrogen. Every farmer ought to get familiar with these terms and to learn from what sources they arc derived and how they should bo applied to the best advantage. It is true that the average soil \\ill contain a certain amount of phosphoric acid, nitrogen aud potash respectively, bnfe it frequently happens that these ingredients are not iu a condition to be taken up at onco by tho growing crops, and hence it pays to put them ou iu the form of fertilizers. By indirect fertilization is meant the application of certain materials to tho soil, like salt, lime or plaster, which in themselves do not furnish any of the three essential ingredients mentioned, but by their stimulating action on the soil render available some of the natural supply of plant food existing there. It will be readily seen, of course, that their action is indirect; heuco the term "indirect fertilizing." Probably on 110 crop has this indirect fertilizing been more extensively practiced than on clover. Many have noticed the effect of a dose of plaster upon clover. The truth of the matter is, that the plaster in itself did not servo as plant food for the clover, but released some plant food in tho soil, notably potash, which the clover at once assimilated to good advantage. It was also experienced by many of the same farmers that in time it became difficult to get a catch of clover on theso lands. The cause of this was that the natural supply of plant food in tho soil had been exhausted, and .since tho plaster iu itself, as already stated, did not furnish any of the three essential plant food ingredients they had to bo restored from some other source before the clover would grow as before. The shrewd farmer at once. ECGS that it is far more economical to keep up the natural supply of plant food in his soil than to allow it to become exhausted by continuous cropping without any renewal. Green Manures. For green manures a writer in The New England Homestead advocates tbo sowing of cowpeas in May, to be followed by crimson clover from the latter part of August to the middle of September. Tho clover protects the land during the winter aud furnishes an excellenc early spring pasture, after which it cnn be turned under for fertilizing purposes. Farm Advertising. There are various modes of advertising among farmers. Tho editor of the Michigan Farmer recommends a fnrm signboard of planed aud matched lumber surrounded by a molding, with tha uame of the farm and its owner painted JohnWSmrth T?o.Address. Ann Ar bor, Mich. For Sale C-- Jerse Swine, Second Jfa Wanted Cows, . OTs.

The accompanying sample signboard illustrates the idea better than columns of verbal dpscrintiou. Plncklng the Innocent. "No," said the soap fakir to a group of people that had gathered nround him, "there is no use talking to mo about the innocence of the countryman. He may buy a gold brick occasionally or sign a blank sheck and lose his farm, but as a rule he can take care of himself just ns well as the next one and generally a little better. If I knew as much as some farmers, I wouldn't bo in this business, and you can gamble on that. "Why, say, do you know what happened to me the last time I was ilown in the country? T got pinched, that's what I done. I got my satchel out in front of the hotel in a little town about 30 miles out east hero imd began to do a few tricks to draw H crowd. "After I'd made an egg disappear and pulled a few knots open for them I says: 'Now, gentlemen, I'm going to show you a trick that nobody else on earth has ever attempted. Yon see my hat hero? Well, we'll imagine for the time being that it's a flowerpot. Out of this hat I'm going to make a bush grow up, and when I've dono that I'll make every leaf on it turn into a $5 note.' "What? Did I do it? Of course 1 did! But, say, do you know what como of it? Blamed if they didn't arrest me and fine me §15 for raising bills, which the justice of the peace said was 'contrary to the statoots made and provided.' "Well, I sort of had a hankering to know whether they done it in good faith or just because they thought I was easy picking, and what do you think I found out? Why, the people of that town hadn't paid any taxes for eight years. They'd actually been running things by plucking just such innocent fellows as me. "Now, gentlemen, there's a $1 bill in one of these little packages. Who will give mo 10 cents for the first choice?"--Cleveland Leader. "Are you in pain, my little man?" tisked the kind old gentleman. "No,"answered the boy. "The pain's in ma" ' YOU ARE INVITED.
