F you want your chicks to have bright yellow legs, never allow them to run or wallow where unleached wood ashes have been thrown, they wilf bleach them white, t'se sulphur sparingly or it will UiU more chicks than it cures, yet it can be used judicially on old fowls. If lice have accumulated during incubation they will easily be seen on the heads of the chicks. When you take the mother hen off with her brood rub her well under her wings and body with grease. When she broods her chicks their heads come in. contact with the grease, which the lice can not long endure. Give her a good place to dust herself in and she will soon rid herself and chicks of the pests. Keep the chicks from huddling in heaps at night after the hen leaves them, lest some get too warm, afterwards taking cold, which ends in roup, the dreaded disease. I fear it more than cholera, although I never had the latter ia my flock, and by keeping everything strictly clean you need never fear it. I often read in the poultry journals that it is not much work to take care of poultry. 1 have always found it juet the reverse. Still, I like it for the out-door exercise and natural loin I .have for pets. I also found it very remunerative, but I find there Is as great a demand, for that article called common .sense in poultry raising as in everything else. The third year I gave poultry my attention I kept a strict account with the biddies. I had thirty-two Light Brahma hens and forty half-bloods for sitters. In the early spring I sold ninety-two sittings of eggs, twenty-two half-bloods for sit. ters, and raised near 700 chicks. I sold some for broilers and some for breeding purposes, and packed over 150 dozen eggs during the summer. I sold all the culls Thanksgiving, and at the end of the year the books showed a balance in my favor of $791.34. Since that time I have kept no accurate account, but am satisfied to continue until I find something better. Most of the farmers have their poultry yards 'overstocked; hence it costs more to feed them, and they are not so remunerative. Cull your flocks in early fall, and the remainder will do better and be more profitable. The cost of feeding varies with the price of grain. Farmers do not icel this as we who have it to buy. If the fowls have their liberty, the cost of feeding is a mere trifle. It Is estimated that one and a half bushels of corn will keep a hen one year. Our estimate of the cost of one hen one year, in confinement, was eighty-seven cents, but she had a variety of food. Where they are comfortably housed it costs less to feed them, and they will lay more eggs. A few timely hints in regard to treatment as the weather grows warmer, and I have done. During the heated term, all kinds of vermin propagate rapidly, and, if allowed, will prove to be the pest "whose name is legion." Examine your fowls frequently .to make sure they have no lice upon them, and watch with a jealous eye for the appearance of the tiny, but abominable pests—the poultry parasite. The "ounce of prevention" should be brought into requisition now, if ever. If hens are kept Bitting for late chicks, have special care to provide a cool] quiet place on the ground for them. A little hollow made in the earth, with a lining of clean, fresh grass, is sufficient. If the eggs get foul, wash them ~cl£an in'tepjd water, line the nest with frash grass and replace the eggs. Carefully study the habits of your hens with chicks. They will be found to vary as much as other folks in disposition and habits. Such as prove quiet sitters, careful and successful mothers, and tractable when their keepers approach, should be spared for another year's service. I have one (Old Brownie) seven years old, and she now has seventeen hearty chicks. The great value of milk aa a food for poultry seems to be overlooked by farmers and those who have plenty. It is good for them in all shapes. It is qagerly eaten by them, and they will thrive on it as they will on nothipg else., The above is largely • myowu «KperieHee, -and hence I know whereof I speak, and I find that by proper devotion to the demands of the nature of our fowls, one will have but little use for the study.of diseases. But there is work about it, and there Is about anything we undertake if we do it successfully. Constant vigilance is the price of success in almost every undertaking, .and in none other is it more applicable than in the breeding and management of poultry, whether pure bred or not, if profit is tue desired result. Outlook for tlto Cow. We tlo not know of a greater business tbftn the production of milk. Not that 'the'production of milk is the greatest industry in the world at present, but it is very likejy to become so In the future. There is almost no limit to the possibilities jn this regard. Milk jjrinkins and, milk using is largely a tbiog that has been adopted by certain soiniBunHies, but where- once adopted it stays. There are still in tho world vaef, areas where the people do not i'hjafc of usiug cows' milk as a food, eofljiiie reason is that milk has not £jeej»-placed before them in a form that lo them a,s buyers. Especially tvu* *» tropical countries' & few cows here and there sxipply the wants o? large communities. They supply the wants of the large communities .because but few of the people ih those communitiea use milk in any form. We heard some time ago of an American who tried to get some butter In a town of Venezuela. He tried to find a grocer that had it for sale, but was finally told that In all probability he could get some at the drug store. He went there and found that they had a very small supply that was kept as a permanent stock to be used for medical purposes. Whether it was used for outward or Inward application deos not appear. When the American asked for a couple of pounds the native druggist nearly fell over in astonishment, and wondered what on earth the American could do with two pounds of butter, which, .by the way, was about his whole stock in trade. The butter, however, was found to be rancid and decidedly unfit for the internal use Intended by the American. This but illustrates' that there are vast populations that have got yet to be educate'd into the milk and butter using habit. In our large American cities the use of milk is every year Increasing. More and more It is becoming an article of universal diet. Even buttermilk Is coming into great demand In all of the city restaurants and even multitudes of saloons keep a supply of good, cold, fresh buttermilk constantly on hand. These are signs that the cow Is to be a strong factor in the economics of the future. Two great considerations come up In the spreading of this milk- drinking habit. First the quality of the milk and second its cheapness. Both sweet milk and buttermilk win their way on their quality nnd if the farmer wants his trade to increase he must give the best milk that can be had. We know of course that feed does not cut a very great figure in the solid contents of milk, but we cannot but think that feed does have very much to do with the flavor and palatabillty of milk. Perhaps this point will be disputed, but we doubt If one that has been an habitual drinker of milk will be satisfied to take it from any cow ana from any food.. We know that with domestic animals used for food, the food on which they have been grown and fattened transmits its flavor to the flesh. Thus the water-fowl that feeds on fish Is so fishy that it is very distasteful to many. The beeves, muttons and swine are notably affected to such an extent that it makes a great difference on the market. Can it be doubted, therefore, that the feed does have a very great effect on the quality of the milk? The cows that are fed on pasture grass alone will not produce a milk that the city people will relish as they will milk produced from grass and millfeeds. Especially is this true In the early part of the summer when after heavy rains there Is a decided grass flavor to the milk. So far as cost is concerned the only way it can be put on the market at a lower rate than present is to elminate the waste and the selling of milk to people that never pay. So far as the restaurants are concerned this is not of much consequence, provided that milk does not go up as it has In Washington, Baltimore and some other cities, where it sells at ten cents per quart. In Chicago it still sells for five and six cents per quart and should be kept at this point If possible. It should be kept at this point to keep up a steady demand that will prevent the supply Increasing faster than the demand and thus in the not distant future causing a collapse. Restaurants sell their milk by the glass at about 20 cents per quart. Recently on the streets of Chicago we noticed a man that had a stand for the sale of ice-cold buttermilk. He sold it at two cents per glass, which would be about eight cents per quart or more. His glasses were of a'size that would require about five for a quart, so we may say that he got ten cents a quart for his milk. He seemed to have a brisk trade. But one day he disappeared from his corner, and the people that had begun to drink buttermilk there and ,had begun to form the habit felt his loss. Probably he had moved to some place in the city where trade was brisker than at his first stand. His being missed, however, shows what a vast amount of buttermilk' might be disposed of in this way. Beef-Producing Cattle.—There is at present a tendency to increase the number and Improve the quality of the beef- producing cattle on our farms. Owing to the long period of depression In the cattle industry the farm herds of beef- bred cattle were seriously reduced or so crossed with dairy blood as to in> pair or: destroy their usefulness for Deef production. Many of the splendid pure-bred herds in the Ohio valley and eastward were dispersed. The well- bred steers formerly raised in such great numbers in this section became iard to get, and feeders have been more and more dependent on the West for :he stock to consume their grain. This resulted in good prices for feeding cattle, which has again stimulated the breeding of good beef cattle on the farms. More beef-bred bulls are now going to these farms than for a long time. This is the forerunner of a great adva.r.c3 In farm beef production, but it is doubtful if the industry again re.aches its old-time importance in the Ohio valley and eastward.—Ex. Water in Milk.—The less frequently the milk is taken from the udder the greater is its proportion of water, the last portions removed being generally the richest in butter, Evening milk is much richer in butter and casein than the morning milk, tno salts remaining about the same. When the animal is given abundance of fopd it increases both the amount o{ casein and fat, while a lessened diet diminishes the total solids. Rest seems to encourage the formation of/ butter, exercise impoverishing the milk in butter, but increasing its rick* nee; J& casein. ' - 7 '' TALMAGE'S SEKMON. "CONSOLATION FOR PARENTS" LAST SUNbAY'S SUBJECT. From the Following i>*t: "The RlRhteoTl'l )• Tnkcn Atrny ftotn the ftvll to Come"—Isnlnli, Chapter , Vertn 1. E all spend much time in panegyric of longevity. We consider it a great thing to live to be an octogenarian. Tf any one dies in youth we say, "What a pity!" D r. Muhlenbergh, in old age, said that the hymn written In early life by his own hand, no more expressed his sentiments When it said: I would not live alway.. Tf one be pleasantly circumstance! 1 ., he never wants to go. William Cullen Bryant, the great poet, at 82 years of age, standing in my house In a festal group, reading "Thanatopsis" without spectacles, was just as anxious to live as whert at 18 years of age he wrote that immortal threnody. Cato fearerl at SO years of age that he would not live to learn GrecU. Monaldesco, at 115 years, writing the history of his time, feared a collapse. Tlieophras- tus. writing a book at 90 years of age, was anxious to live to complete it. Thurlow Weed, at about 8G years pf age, found life as great a desirability as when he snuffed out his first politician. Albert" Barnes, so well prepared for the next world at 70, said he would rather stay here. So It is all the way down. I suppose that the last time that Methuselah was out of doors in a storm he was afraid of getting his feet wet, lest it shorten his days. Indeed, I some time ago preached a sermon on the blessings of longevity, but I now propose to preach to you about the blessings of an abbreviated earth]y existence. If I were an Agnostic I would, say a man is blessed in proportion to the number of years he can stay on terra flrma, because after that he falls off the docks, and if he is ever picked out of the depths it Is only to be set up in some morgue of the universe t° see If anybody will claim him. If I thought God made man only to last forty or fifty or a hundred years, and then he was to go into annihilation, I would say his chief business ought to be to keep alive, and even in good weather to be very cautious, and to carry an umbrella and take overshoes, and life preservers, and bronze armor, and weapons of defense, lest he fall off Into nothingness and obliteration. But, my friends, you are not Agnostics. You believe in immortality and the eternal residence of the righteous in heaven, and, therefore, I first remark that an abbreviated earthly existence is to be desired, and is a blessing, because it makes one's lifework very compact. Some men go to business at seven o'clock in the morning and return at seven In the evening. Others .go at eight o'clock and return at twelve. Others go at ten and return at four. I have friends who are ten hours a day In business; others who are five hours; othei'a who are one hour. They, all do their work well; they do their entire work and then they return. Which position do you think the most desirable? You say, other things being equal, the man who is the shortest time detained in business, and who can return home the quickest, is the most blessed. Now, my friends, why not carry that good sense into the subject of transference from this world? It a person die in childhood, he gets through his work at nine o'clock in the morning. If he die at forty-five years of age, he gets through his work at twelve o'clock, noon. If he die at seventy years of age, he gets through his work at five o'clock in the afternoon. If he die at ninety, he has to toil all the way on up to eleven o'clock at night. The sooner We get through our work the better. The harvest all In barrack or barn, the farmer does not sit down in the stubble-field, but, shouldering his scythe, and taking his pitcher from under the tree, he makes a straight line for the old homestead. All we want to be anxious about is to get our work done, and well done; and the quicker the better. Again: There Is a blessing in an abbreviated earthly existence in the fact that moral disaster might come upon the man if he tarried longer. Recently, a man who had been prominent in churches, and who had been admired for his'generosity and kindness everywhere, for forgery was sent to state prison lor 1C years. Twenty years ago there was no more probability of that man's committing a commercial dishonesty than that you will commit commercial dishonesty. The aumber of men who fall into ruin between fifty and seventy years of age is simply appalling. If they had died thirty years before, it would have been better for them and better for their families. The shorter the voyage, the less chance for a cyclone. There is a wrong theory abroad, that if one's youth be right, his old age will be right. You might as well say there is nothing wanting.Jor a ship's safety except to get it fully launched on the Atlantic Ocean. I have sometimes asked those who were school- jnnvfs or college-mates of some great defaulter, "What kind of a boy was he?" "AVhat kind of a young man was he?" and they have said, "Why, he was a splendid fellow; I had no idea he could ever go into such an outrage." The fact is, the great temptation of life sometimes comes far on in mid-life, pr in old age, The first time 1 crossed the Atlantic Ocean It was as smooth as a millpond, aiul I thought the sea captains ftud the voyagers had slandered the 014 ocean, and I wrote home ay essay for a magazine on "The Smile of the Sea," but I never afterward could have written that thing, for before we got home, we got a terrible shaking up. The first voyage of life may l»o very smooth: the last may be a euroclydon. Many who start life in great prosperity do not end it in prosperity. The great pressure of temptation co::ies sometimes in this direction; fit about forty-five years of age a man's nervous system changes, and some one tells him he must take stimulants to keep himself up, and he takes stimulants to keep himself up. until the stimulants keep him down; or a man has been going along for thirty or forty years in unsuccessful business, and here Is an opening where by one dishonorable action he can lift himself and lift his family from all financial embarrassment. He attempts to leap the chasm and he falls into it. 'Then it is in after life thfit. the great temptation of success comes. K a man makes a fortune before thirty years of age, ho generally loses it before forty. The solid and the permanent fortunes for the most part do not. come to their climax until in miilliiv, or in old age. The most of the bank presidents have white hair. Many of those who have been largely successful have been fluni; of arrogance or wordliness or dissipation in old agt?. They may not have lost their integrity, but they have become so worldly and so selfish under the Influence of large success that it is evident to everybody that their success has been a temporal calamity and an eternal damage. Concerning, many people, It may be said it seems as if it would have been better if they could have embarked from this life at twenty or thirty years of age. Do you know the reason why the vast majority of people die before thirty? It is because they have not the moral endurance for that which is beyond the thirty, and a merciful God will not allow them to be put to the fearful strain. Again: There is a blessing in an abbreviated earthly existence in the fact that one is the sooner taken off the defensive. As soon as one is old enough to take care of himself he is put on his guard. Bolts on the doors to keep out the robbers. Fire-proof safes to keep off the flames. Life insurance and fire insurance against accident. Receipts lest you have to pay a debt twice. Lifeboat against shipwreck. Westinghouse air-brake against railroad collision, and hundreds of hands ready to overreach you and lake all you have.. Defence against cold, defence against heat, defence against sickness, defence against the world's abuse, defence all the way down to the grave, and even the tombstone sometimes is not a sufficient barricade. If a soldier, who has been on guard, shivering and stung with the cold, pacing up and down the parapet with shouldered musket, is glad when some one comes to relievo guard and he can go inside the fortress, ought not that man to shout for joy who can put down his weapon of earthly defence and go Into the king's eastle? Who is the more fortunate, the soldier who has to stand guard twelve hours or the man who has to stand guard six hours? \Ve have common sense about everything but religion, common sense about everything but. transference from this world. * » * What fools we all are to prefer the circumference to the center. What a dreadful thing it would be if we should be suddenly ushered from this wintry world into the May-time orchards of heaven, and i" our pauperism of sin and sorrow should be suddenly broken up by a presentation of an emperov's castle surrounded by parks with springing fountains, and 'paths up and down which angels of God walk two and two. We are like persons standing on the cold steps of the national picture gallery in London, under umbrella in the rain, afraid to go in amid the Turners and tho Titlans and the Raphaels. I come to them and say, "Why don't you go inside the gallery?" "Oh," they say, "we don't know whether we can get in." I say, "Don't you see the door is open?" "Yes," they say, "but we have been so long on these cold steps, we are so attached to them we don't like to leave." "But," I say, "it is so much brighter and more beautiful in the gallery, you had better go in." "No," they say, "we know exactly how it is out here, but we don't know exactly how it is inside." So we stick to this world as though we preferred cold drizzle to warm habitation, discord to cantata, sackcloth to royal purple—as though we preferred a ])iano with four or five of the keys out of tune to an instrument fully attuned—as though earth and heaven had exchanged apparel, and earth had taken on bridal array and heaven had gone into deep mourning, all Us waters stagnant, all its harps broken, all chalices cracked at the dry wells, all tho lawns sloping to the river plowed with graves, with dead angels under the furrow. Oh, I want vo break up my own Infatuation, and I want to break up your infatuation with this world. I tell you, if we are ready, and if our work is done, the sooner we go the better, and if there are blessings in longevity I want you to know right \/oll there are also blessings in an abbreviated earthly existence. If the spirit of this sermon is true, how consoled you ought to feel about members of your family that went early. "Taken from the evil to come," this book says. What u fortunate escape they had! How glad we ought to feel that they will never have to go through the struggles which we have had to go through. They had just tirno enough to get out of the cradle and run up on the springtime hills o£ this world and see how it looked, and then they started for a, better stopping place. They were like ships that put in at St. Helena, staying tfiere long enough to let passengers so tip and SPO tlie barracks of Napoleon's captivity, and then hoist sail for the port of their own native land. They only took fliis world In transitu. It. Is hard for us, but it is blessed fo'r them. And if the spirit of this sermon is true, then we ought not to go around sighing and groaning when another year Is going; when we ought to go down on one knee by the milestone and see the letters and thank God t.'iat we are three hundred and sixty-five miles nearer home. We ought nnt to go around with morbid feel. ings about our health or about anticipated demise. We ought to be living not according to that old maxim which I used to hear in my boyhood, that you must live as though every day were the last; you must live as though you were to live forever, for you will. Do not be nervous lest you have to move out of a shanty into an Alhambra. One Christmas day 1 witnessed something very thrilling. We had just distributed the family presents Christmas morning, when I heard a great cry of dish-ess in the hallway. A child from n. neighbor's bouse came in to say her father was dead. It was only three loors off, and I think in two minutes wo wero there, There lay the old Christian sea captain,his face upturned toward the window, as though he had suddenly seen the headlands, and wffh an Illuminated countenance, as though he were just going Into harbor. The fact was he had already got through the "Narrows." In the adjoining room were the Christmas presents, waiting for his distribution. Long ago, one night, when lie had narrowly escaped with his ship from being run down by a great ocean stoarner, he had made his peace with God, and a kinder neighbor or a better man than Captain Pendle- l.on you would not find this side of heaven. Without a moment's warning, the pilot of the heavenly harbor had met him just off the lightship. He bad often talked to me of the goodness of God, and especially of a time when he was about to enter New York harbor with his ship from Liverpool, and he was suddenly impressed that he ought to put back to sea. Under the protest of the crew and under their very threat he put back to sea, fearing at the same time he was losing his mind, for it did seem so unreasonable that when, they could get into harbor that night they should put back to sea. But they put back to sea, and Captain Pendletoa said to his mate, "You call me at ten o'clock at night," At twelve o'clock at night the captain was aroused and said, "What does this mean? I thought I told you to call me at ten o'clock, and here it is twelve." "Why," said the mate, "I did call you at ten o'clock, and you got up, looked around, and told me to keep right on the same course for two hours, and then to call you at twelve o'clock." Said the captain, "Is it possible? I have no remembrance of that." At twelve o'clock the captain went on deck, and through the rift of a cloud the moonlight fell upon the sea anil showed him a shipwreck with one hundred struggling passengers. He helped them off. Had he been any earlier or later at that point, of the sea he >vould have been of no service to those drowning people. On board the captain's vessel they began to band together as to what they should pay for the rescue and what they should pay for provisions. "Ah," says the captain, "my lads, you can't pay me anything; all I have on board Is yours. I feel too greatly honored of God in having saved you to take any pay." Just like him. He never got any pay except that of his own applauding conscience. Oh, that the old sea captain's God might be my God and yours! Amid the stormy seas of this life may we have always some one as tenderly to take care of us as the captain took care of the drowning crew and the passengers. And may we come into the harbor with as little physical pain and With aa bright a hope as he had, and if it should happen to be a Christmas morning, when the presents arc being distributed, and we are celebrating the birth of Him who came to save our shipwrecked world, all the better, for what grander, brighter Christmas present could we have than heaven? rounder of l{eil Cross Society. The name cf the man who was tbo actual cause of the foundation of tho Red Cross society, which has done so much to mitigate the horrors of war la little known to the present generation. However, hoi-is s^Ill alive, and unfortunately, it is said, in bad circumstances. His name is Dunant, and he was born in Geneva in 1828. A man of means, he appears to have devoted a large portion of his wealth to, works of charity In connection with his native city. The admirable labors of Florence Nightingale, which attracted tho attention of all Europe, made a strong impression on M. Dunant, which was further increased by his own participation in the war of Napoleon III against the Austrians in 1859. There he witnessed war in all its horrors, and it resulted in his publishing u'~ book on the subject which at the time attracted much attention, in 18G3 he started on a pilgrimage, at his own expense, to various countries, to stir up men into influencing the various governments into a conference which should have for its object the formation of some means for the mitigation of the horrors of war. The result was the historic conference in 186-1 at Geneva, the outcome of which was the convention wh'ch has made modern warfare comparatively humane.
