' Fttnttufre In Horse*. - of the most common causes of lameness is puncture of the sole of the foot. It is caused by the animal stepping on a nail or other sharp object. The puncture is most likely to occur in the neighborhood of the frog, or where the sole and wail of" the foot join,- but it may occur in any part of the sole. When the nail comes in contact with the horn of the sole it is likely to glance until it meets the projection of the wall or the softer rough frog; hence the greater frequency of puncture in these localities. SYMPTOMS. Since the nail usually pulls out, and the horn springs back to its former position so as to close the opening the nail made, there is sometimes difficulty in locating exactly the seat of the wound. As a result of this many an animal has been made to stand on a lame foot by a stifle shoo having been put on the well foot. Locating this sort of lameness in the stifle joint is a common, but inexcusable error, as the action resulting from lameness in the two parts is entirely different. The so called "gravel" which is said to enter tho sole of the foot and then "work out" at the 'heel is usually the "%vorking out" of the pus or the matter resulting from a Infitilietlft fto. $4 «f Agrieuitttftdl Kitf^rifttfefit StaWoH i& gltfefl a report df tfa66*|rerliB&nts tried iaoateulttifBtsn the Station fafm at Champaigti.

White the land was apparently unusually uniform in quality, the difference in yield of plats of the same variety was marked in a number of cases; in one case being over 12 bu. per acre. The best yielding varieties were: Texas Rustproof, 74 bu. per acre!

In trials for five years the best yielding varieties have stood in following order; Prlngles Progress, Texas Rust Proof, New Dakota Gray, New Red Rust Iroof, American Banner, Improved American. Calgary Gray has been grown two seasons. It ranked third among fifty-nine varieties in 1803. Three plats were sown with different mixtures of varieties and three with the product of different mixtures grown in 1802. Each mixture gave a slightly larger and each product of mixture a slightly lower yield than the average or tho varieties used in making mix- stated At tffig ef Ifaa meetlfsp yeafs ago, that his choWe df .til a Sectel ite* had able eveti tot this, Been ftisM Many ihe t» the imwaii fcaii feat In this veiy utttewrTsWe pa* lor the tree fruits, Seekel Is Ihs only vmriety (e* ce pt Tyson) that has a gooS. efop.

A rich man plays with a farm as .chlldfcm do with dolls, dress- Ing up to suit his fancy, and quite indifferent as to expense or profit. It is his fancy and not his pocket that he farms for. Such men are not useless. They employ many hands. They try a great many experiments which working farmers can not afford to try. They show what can bo done. And American farmers, although they %vlll not Imitate, will do better than that—they will take hints in this thing and that, and by gradual improvement they will raise their own style of farmingmany degrees. Every township oughtto have one gentleman farmer who aims to show what soil can be made to do. In his case it may not be remunerative. , ~ —"WAI. *iw t \ji.

Could I alone, out of tho whole world see, or was everyone else blind!' So the shadow deepened and darkened. I was unutterably miserable; [ began to live in constant fear. It seemed to me there was a volcano bo- neath my feet. No shadow of fear lay on Lady Latimer's face.

A milliner, whose large bill had been repeatedly ignored by tho duchess, at last determined to send her little girl, a pretty child of ten years, to beg for the money which was so much needed. "Bo sure to say •your grace' to the duchess," said the anxious mother, and tho child gravely promised to remember. When, after long waiting, she was ushered into the duohesfa 1 presence, the little girl dropped a low courtesy, and then, folding her hands and closing her eyes, she said, softly; "For' what I am about to receive may tho Lord make me truly thankful," As she opened her eyes and turned her wistful gano on the duchess, that light-hearted per^ son flushed very red, and, without delay made out a check for the amount duo to the millinei'.—Argonaut.

SJftings, nail puncture or a bruise, If an animal becomes suddenly and severely lame and there be no evidence of anything in any other part of the leg, such as swelling, heat and pain upon pressure, it is always well to look for puncture in the foot. If the animal stands with the lame foot extended and when walking places the lame foot well forward and brings the well foot up to it, the evidence of puncture is still stronger. To examine the foot properly the shoe should be removed. It is not sufficient to merely scrape tho bottom of the foot clean, for if tho nail has pulled out and the horn sprung back in position, all trace of its entrance may have been obliterated. To examine the foot properly, a pair of large pincers or a hammer is necessary. The former is the better, as by compressing the hoof the exact spot may bo found, while tapping the sole with a hammer may cause the animal to evince pain, even though the tapping is not directly over the injury; but with a little care the spot may be definitely located with either instrument. If the injury is of a few days' standing additional heat in the 1ioof and perhaps slight swelling in the pastern may also be present. TKKATJ1KNT, When the point of the puncture has been ascertained the horn should be pared out so as to leave an opening for the escape of all matter. This opening need not be larger than an ordinary sized lead pencil. The practice of burning out this hole with a hot iron or by the \ise of caustics is very objectionable and useless, A solution of carbolic acid (one part of acid to twenty-five of water) may be used to wash the wound, af the animal be kept in a cjean place, Ind the wound washed once a day with the same solution, a rapid recoy, ery is usually the result. In cases where the lameness is severe, a poultice of wheat bran or linseed meal may be applied for a day or two, but should not bo kept up for a, longer period. PBOVD FJ-E8H. In those crises where the lameness subsides, but luxuriant granulations of "proud flesh" spring up and fill the opening in the horn, they may be cut down by » hot iron tp & point Ipvel with the inwer or deeper surface of the homy solo, Then the cavity should be tiled with bp^sam of fir, g, pad of cotton, placed oyer it, and over all a, piece Of goo,Aflrni leather, which may be held Jn p}ace by a shqe, The wa^n point in the treatment of nail puncture qf is to.give tures. Two plats were.rolled, after being sown. Each gave an average yield. Two plats were drilled, the quantity of seed being less than where the seed was sown broadcast. The yield of each was much below the average. For the first time since the station was established in 1888 early sown oats were injured by, the frost. In a series of four years slightly the largest yields came from sowing near the last of March. The average yield of straw was 3,314 Ibs. per acre. The largest yield was 4,54fj;'the smallest 3,205 Ibs. per bushel, Tim Soukel Pear. Many years ago, when "Dutch Jacob" (as he was called,) a Philadelphia cattle dealer, returned from his shooting excursion early in the fall, he is said to have legaled his friends with pears that were a marvel of excellence, but the locality of whoso growth he would never disclose. Subsequently, the Holland Land Co,, which owned) a considerable tract south of the eity offered it for sale in parcels, and Jacobse- cured the ground on which his favorite pear tree stood, a strip near the Delaware, This was considerably over 100 years ago, Whether he called the pear by any particular name is not known, but in time's changes the land and tree came into the possession of a Mr, Seckel, who- introduced the remarkable fruit, and it received his name, This is condensed from a note in Downing's, large worfc o» fruits, Bishop White—long since deceased—having furnished the information, The original tree was standing not long since and may be yet, A nice picture of it may be seen in one of the volumes of the Pennsylvania state agricultural association, published a few years ago.
