Many carefully conducted export mont* have shown the superiority of early-cut hay. One made by Prof; Jordan' of the Pennsylvania state college lasted 50 days, -Foul- steers were se locted two being fed on early cut hay and two on that which had been cut late. After 28 days' feeding they Were changed, and the two Which had been fed Ihe early-cut hay were fed the late cut. Those cut the early-cut gained 8.14 Ibs. and the other 2.4 Ibs per clay, or 79 ibs of the early cut hay made as much gains as 100 Ibs of the late cut. A second experiment made at the same place lasted throe months, and, as less meal •was fed, showed a still greater ditter- enco in favor of the early-cut hay. 1 wo head of cattle fod on oai'.y-cut hay gani- t-d 2 Ibs per day, while those on late-cut hay. gained but S4.1bs or 55 Ibs of Ihe early-cut buy made as much gain as 100 Ibs of the late cut. In the first experiment each lot of two steers were, fed 12 Ibs of meal per day; in the second, two wore fed 7 Ibs per day. •: The old saying: "Make hay while the «un shines," simply means that the grass should bo turned frequently so as to dry evenly and quickly. On the other hand, it does not mean that it should be left bleaching in the sun and dew two or three days after cutting, until it has lost nearly all that is good for food and has become much as flax should be for the brake. Never cut the grass too young or before the nutritive qualities are converted from a watery condition. When cut before that transformation. too much of it will be lost in drying and the remainder will sour in curing. Every ;hay maker must have noticed that clover cut before it is in full bloom, or timothy before the tirst blossom, becomes very light when dry •which is 'evidence that there iis little nu- iMmeiit in it. The proper thm *> commence 'Cutting is as nearly as 'possible at the period of .flowering. All ruminating animals do better on hay cut at that time, but horses scorn to prefer It • made • from grass more advanced. Make the hay for horses last. In cutting the hay crop start the mower as soon as the dew has dried off in the morning. In a short time distribute the grass evenly with the tedder that it may all Teach the same degree -of 'Cutting at tbis stage" will 'invariably. .give the most palatable, and nutritious hay for all dairy cattle and sheep.--Or.ange Judd Farmer. •A.

The people of Rich Hill, Mo., and vicinity, have recently been startled by a, seeming miracle of healing. For years one of the best known men ifi Bates and Vernon counties has been Mark M. Woodson. now postmaster at Panama, and brother of ex-State Itt- spector of Mines C. C. Woodson, of this city. The people of Rich Hill, where he'formerly resided, and of his present home, remember well the bent form misshapen almost from the semblance of man, which has painfully bowed its head half to earth and labored snaillike across the Walks season after season, and when one day Inst month it straightened to its full height, .threw away the heavy butt of cane which for years had been its only support from total helplessness, and walked erect firmly, unhesitatingly about the two cities, people looked and wondered The story of the remarkable case has become the marvel of the two cotmties Exactly as Mr. Woodson told it .to a Times reporter, it is here published: "For ten years I have- suffered the thing of riding hud best not try 10 torments of the damned and have been train his 'own horse, for it would al- a , useless invalid: to-day I am a well most impossible for master and ant- and hearty man, free from almost every a S<ultile HOPHC. A man who has not learned sojne- of riding hud best not try to mal to be educated at the same time. But when one has once mistered tho rudiments of horsemanship he should by all means train his horse, Until he has taken a green horse— I do not pay an unbroken liorsa— and tralnod the horse to go the various gaits at command, he will iicvor know the highest pleasure to be derived from the exorcise. When one lias such a horse there is something lil*e a double ownership in the animal, for the master has supplied the -education which increases the animal's value a hundred fold. By a green horse I mean a horse that has been bitted and backed, is no lousor afraid to let a man mount into the saddle, and is what trainee call "bridle- wise." And yet it is a pity that a gentleman wanting to turn out a perfect saddle liorsc could not have him in the very beginning, and by patience and gentleness get the confidence, respect and affection of the animal. Th« breaking. of colts in this country is usually vei.v roughly done, the young horse being .conquered in the end by the greater persistsncy and ingenuity of man. The method usually employed touch of pain. I don't think matt ever suffered more acute and constant agony than 1 have since 1884. The rheumatism started then in my right knee, and after weeks of suffering in bed I was at last relieved sufficiently to arise, but it was only to get about on crutches for five years, the ailment having settled in the joint. Despite constant treatment of the most eminent physicians the rheumatism grew worse, and for the last four years 1 have been compelled to go about bent half toward the ground. In the winter of 1890-91, after the rheumatism had settled into its most chronic form, I went to Kansas City upon advice of my brother, and for six weeks I was treated in one of the largest and best known dispensaries of that city, but without the slightest improvement. Before 1 came home-.I secured a strong galvanic battery; this I used for months with the same result, In August, 1892, I went to St. Louis, and there conferred with the widely known Dr. Mudd of hospital practice fame, and Dr. Kale of the city hospital. None of them would take my case with more than lar A Cheap F-enclns: MtusMne. t-wo S-inch pieces of buggy tire, using 2 inches from each for the wel«l, and leaving 'the .other ends straight and about an inch apart.

And then, again, the temper is often hopelessly spoiled, and many of the "busted bronchos" ire cruel buck .lumpers to. the end..... ;. ,, , Rarey., the great horse trainer,' l.'ivd three cardinal principles upon which he worked..' First, that a horse is so constitute^ 1 by nature that he will not offer resistance to :»ny demand which he fully comprehends, if made in a way .consistent with, nature. Second, that he has no consciousness of his •strength beyond his experience, and can be handled according to the man's will, without notice. Third, 1 hat niun can, in compliance with the laws of the horse's nature, by which he examines all things new to him, take an object, however frightful, provided it does not inflict pain, 'around or over or on tho horse without causing him to fear. The world long accented the first two of these principles without reserve, and-the third with limitations.—John Giluier Speed, in Lippincott's. Seventeen. Tlints. A. G. Gilbert, the poultry manager at *he Central experiment "arm, Canada, says; That coal oil is the best wash for roosts, That roup is due to negligence in draughts, ventilation or foulness, That the Black Minorcas, Andalu- sians, White Leghorns, Red Caps, Wy- andottes and Plymouth Rocl*s lay best in winter. That a doaen eggs of the White Leghorn breed will veigh one pound ten ounces, ' That the Black (Spanish are an ounce heavier to the do«en, That a dozen Wyandotte eggs will weigh one pound bieven ounces. That tho Wyandotte will lay between 130 and 150 eggs in a year. Thai; tho Bruhinae lay a IfU'ge egg when Ujey rqa outside and a small egg when closely eonnned, The difference il\ T -he wejght ot the eggs per is pat at thvee ana one^half any hope of affording me more than temporary relief, and so I came home, weak, doubled with pain, helpless and despondent. "About this time my attention was called to the account of a remarkable cure by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for Pale People of locqmotor ataxia, rheumatism and paralysis. I. ordered some of the pills as an experiment. When,! began to take,them, the rheumatism had developed into a phase of paralysis; my leg from my .thigh down was cold all the time' arid could not be kept warm. In a short time the. pills were gone and so was the cane. 1 was able to attend to the duties, of my office, to get about as a well and strong man. I was free from pain and I could enjoy a sound and restful night's sleep, something I had not known for ten years. To-day am practically, and, I firmly believe, permanently cured of my terrible and agonizing ailment. No magician of the Far East ever wrought the miracle with his wand that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills did for me." To verify the story beyond all question of doubt Mr. Woodson made the following affidavit: STATE OF MISSOURI, (. gB COUNTV OF'.BATES,'I . I, M, M. Woodson, being duly sworn on my oath state that the following statements are true and correct as I verily believe. M. M. Woonsos. Subscribed and sworn to before me this Sd^day of March, 1894. JOHN D.

The Pamunkey Indians, whose distinction it is to be the only Virginia ribe that has survived tho encroachment of civilization, have excited the interest of the bureau of ethnology, which has issued a bulletin describing them. This fragment of an Indian nation, which in early colonial days, occupied a great deal of territory in the vicinity of Washington, now consists of about 100 individuals. They dwell on a ^curiously shaped heck of land in King William county. Virginia, The place is almost entirely surrounded by water, and to this fact is doubtless due the continued residence of the Indians; very likely their survival is due to the protection thus given- 1'or a century, says the Washington Star, their number has continued to bo about the same. Jefferson, writing in 1781, estimated the population of Indian town at 100, and Howe nearly seventy yp.ars later, placed it at the same figure. No member of the tribe is of full blood. While the copper-colored skin and the straight, coarse hair of the aboriginal American show decidedly in some individuals, there are others whose origin would not be detected by the ordinary observer. There has been considerable intermixture of white blood and not a little of that of the negro, though the laws of the tribe now strictly forbid marriage with persons of African descent. The Pamunkeys have a great deal of race pride. Though they acknowledge the whites as equals, they consider the blacks as far beneath their social level. Their feeling toward tho negro is illustrated by their recent indignant refusal to accept a colored teacher, who was sent to them to conduct the free school which the state of Virginia provides for them. They are very anxious to keep their blood free from further mingling with that of other races, I and "how to accomplish this purpose , is a serious problem of theirs, inasmuch as they recognise the danger of too frequent marriage, within the pale of consanguinity. The Pa- munkey Indians are not particularly strong and robust, perhaps because of frequent marriages between relatives. They are temperate, moral and peaceable. There is good feeling between them and their white neighbors. They are exceedingly proud of their lineage and love to tell how brave and stubbornly their forefathers resisted the encroachments of the whites. They obtain their living for the most part in true aboriginal stylo. Their chief occupations are hunting and fishing, primitive dug-out canoes being used. Farming they do on a small scale, but for manual labor they entertain a truly aboriginal dislike, frequently hiring negroes to attend to their little truck patches.

"".uefields, the capital and only port of the Mosquito reservation, gets its name from a famous old pirate of the past, called Bleevelt, the remains of whose stronghold—in an advanced state of decay—are still seen on a high promontory at the entrance of the harbor known as the "Bluff." The town proper lies about BIX miles from the sea, and is reached by crossing a large lagoon of such shallowness that only after much tugging, pushing and pulling in email boats of the lightest draft is the passenger landed at the government wharf. Seen irom the lagoon, the town presents a pleasant picture, says the Popular Science Monthly. Seated upon comparatively high ground, the lucious green of tho lux uriant vegetation in which it is framed runs quite down to the water's edye, while here and there a stately palm or cocoanut tree, its leaves nodding lazily in the almost imperceptible breeze, gives the landscape that calm, dreamy look so characteristic of tropical life. There is but one street in town (King street) leading up from the wharf. On this street are its few stores and trade shops. The rest of the settlement—covering an area of two square miles—is scat tered about, wheresoever.the house holder willed it, without plan or reference to streets and lanes. At th time of my visit the town contained three horses' and two carts or wagons so it is evident that streets would be of less use for-traffic-'than,for the eake of symmetry, and Sambo ideas of symmetry is an unknown quantity. The houses of Bluelields, with the exception of a few native "shacks,'' are built of lumber brought from the United States, and are similar in "styflGTOf"architeo-tu-rfl-r to those-Jound- in small American villages. All buildings are erected on posts, and raised .two or three feet above, the ground, to avoid the wet' and mud of the rainy season. The population, numbering about 1,500 is composed principally of the descendants of Jamaica negroes, with a sprinkling of cross-breed Indians, Spaniards and negroes; these are known as "Sam- bos."
