MEYER allow a horso to stand on fermenting litter. DON'T forget to blanket your horso every time a stop is made. COI.TS need exorcise of some kind if hoy arc to bo kept in good health. CULTIVATE tho intelligence of your lorsc. It will add greatly to his value. TUB lack of good road horses indicates hat stnllitjns capable of siring such animals are few. IT takes brains to achieve success In ho horso business, and the horso must lave part of the supply. MORE than twenty-one thousand lorses are consumed for food by tho )cople of 1'aris every year. CJLRB should bo taken that the stable floors are dry and level, so that horses can stand upon them without discomfort. Gl,AN*DEKB is on the increase In this lountry, and it is suggested that owners bo careful whore and how their lorscs drink. MA.VV persons who are willing to pay a fair price for a horse stay away from ihe sales because they think the.prices will be too high. A FATAL lung disease has appeared among horses all through northern Wyoming. Those that do not dlo are •endered worthless. AMOSO tho horses imported from tho stables of the czar of Russia Is Krakus, an animal that has trotted a quarter of milo in thirty seconds, SKIM milk is excellent for developing 1 crowing colts. If given at the right time, it will often settle tho question of profit or loss with the horse. A HORSE can be readily taught to like milk by using It to moisten ground food or by adding it to water in gradually increasing quantities for several days, -How Plf • AM Foondered. It Is quite easy to overfeed, and, as it IB termed, to founder pigs. All there Is to do is to givo them all the food they will eat, as they are so greedy as to eat more than they can digest Thon they become stunted and do not gfrow, and, being sick and weak, they soon become a prey to llco and other vermin. Tho remedy when this mistake has boon mado Is to stop tho feeding and give only a little for several days until they rocorer a proper tone of tho stomach'. Pigs should never get more than half as much lood as they will eat until they are put up for fattening-. They should also get a little siflt in every feed; about one toaspoonful, olevel, is snough for a largo pig. When pigs are feeding on oak mast they should have one feed a day of milk slop with a little bran or meal In it. Two quarto for a hundred-pound pig are quite enough under these circumstances.

Efforts arc being made at the New Hampshire experiment station to determine the effects of different foods upon tho hardness of butter, says a writer in tho Breeder's Gazette. Although the work l;as not yet gona far enough to justify the drawing of conclusions, tho experiments thus far indicate: 1. That gluten meal tends to produce a much softer quality of butter than cornroeal or cottonseed meal, and other things being equal tends to lessen the churnability of the butter fat. 3. That- with the same cows tho hardness, depends much more upon the charactar of the food than upon tho nutritive ratio. 8. That silage produces a much- softer butter than does good hay, but it is also favorable to the flavor and texture of tho butter product. 4. That skimmed milk has a very favorable effect on the churn- ability and quality of the butter fat, and in a single trial apparently reversed tho general rulo that the volatile, fatty acids decrease as tho period of lactation advances. 5. That cottonseed meal tends to produce an unusual hard quality of butter, and cottonseed meal and gluten meal might! be used together with excellent results, 0. That contrary to general belief tho melting point of butter fat is not a good indication of tho commercial hardness of butter; for while in general a soft butter melts at a lower temperature than hard butter there is no definite relation between melting point aud actual hardness. 7. That no" relation can be traced between foods and volatile fatty acids except in the case of skim-milk; that usually hardness and volatile acids vary inversely, the hardness generally increasing and the volatile acids decreasing- as the period of lactation advances.

Tho hay can be bound as tightly as desired by means of the notches on B into which D fits. CC forms the arch over the hind wheels. H can bo made of two pieces of board put tog-other In the shape of a roof, or a thin board of some tough wood can bo bent so as to answer the purpose. Hows made from old wagon tires cut in half are often used and answer the purpose admirably. Anyone handy with tools can make this rack now while other work is not very pressing. _^ The Florida Blood Ro»o. THe blood rose la found only In Florida, In an area five miles In diam- •tor.

Tlun Aniitilo Cliiiviv., '.)u- eMust son of the hue Col. .M:mnd Cliave-/., New Mexico's most liiitod Indian Ii!?htcr, tolls an intiii-usr.iiifj story of the biff (iij-lit with tin: Nuvajos at Fort Win- f;-:ito in ISiil. ivhich was tlie cause of the turhnlonoo of that tri^u during- the rebellion, an 1 which lie witnessed as a boy. l)on Amado was about 12 years old then. His father was com- mandinfi-at Fort Winfjatc, where New Mexican voluntec!- troops were stationed to watch the Navajos and keep them quiet. Tlie tribe was supposed to be peaceable and friendly, but it was deemed wise to keep an eye on them and prevent them from stealing stock, in which art the Navajos are past masters. The Navajos had a pony that they believed able to outrun anything on four leg-s, and they were anxious to Ret up a match race at the fort. The sur- g-eon of the post owneda thoroughbred race horse, and a match was made between the two. There was a peneral p-athering- of the tribe around the fort for oeveral days before tho race, and tho Indians and soldiers were on the best Of terms. One of tho chiefs took a fancy to the colonel's son, and made a present to little Amado of a pretty buck-skin pony with white tail and maue. Amado was very proud of his pony, and rode him about the Indian camp and made friends of the Navajos. On the day of the race tlio Indians and soldiers bet all of their portable property on the result. • According to the Indian custom, tho things watered were tied together and piled up m n, g-eneral heap. If a soldier bet *5 against a Navajo blanket the coins were tied up in 11 fold of tho blanket, a t»ff attached showing- who were the parties to the transaction, and the blanket oast upon tho pile. If two horses were the stakes, they were haltered tog-ether and driven into the corral. The corral was stakeholder for everybody and for all bets, and a het- erofi-oneous mass of personal property was dumped therein. A shrewd Navajo rode the Indian pony and a Mexican of the name of Ortiz rode the thoroughbred horse. The thousand-yard stretch across the prairie was hemmed in on both sides by a mixed crowd of Indians and Mexican soldiers. A fair start was made, and the pony got away a little in tho l»ad. He was only a sprinter, however, and was no match for the horse when the latter got fairly into his stride. The Indian soon saw that tho pony was outclassed and that ho could not win by fair running, and so he resorted to tricks to prevent the horso from pa»a- injr. Whenever the horse attempted to pass, the Indian pulled tho pony over to that side just enough to get In the way, and Ortiz was compelled to pull up to avoid collision. The Indian worked the trick with so many variations that the horse was fairly pocketed all tho time by that lone pony, and 0»tlz became furious. At last Ortiz lost patience, and when only a few yards from the finish the Indian tried the trick again, Ortiz gave the horse his spurs and plunged ahead. The big American horse rolled the pony over and over, but kept his own foot «nd bounded across tho line. The pony s neck was broken and his rider was jrushod to death in tho fall. As soon as the Navajos understood what had happened they made a rush for Ortiz, Soldiers rallied around the rider to protect him, and in ha. f a minute a free fipht was in full blast. Tho soldiers got together quickly, and their fire was more effective than tho scattering- five of the Navajos, but the Indians wore numerous and made an ucrlv fipfht. . , .. Young Amado saw his friend, the old chief, lying on tho ground wounded, and he wont to him. The old man was mortally hurt, but ho knew the boy and asked him for water. Arnado got tho water, sat down by tho Indian, raised his head, and gave him a drink. Tho surgeon camo riding by, looking <«. M»a hnv. and saw ' a wounded Indian, fie snatched Amado up by the collar, placed him behind on the horse, galloped back into the fort, and handed him over to the colonel, who had just been aroused by the firing and was getting out of a sick bed to take charge of thing-s. The colonel told the boy to stay in quarters and not venture out again, and theu he wont to the walls and got the cannon into action. Rut tho boy could think of nothing but his Navajo friend Iviug out there on tho plain with a ghastly wound in the breast and Jong- ing in vain for water. So ho filled his father's canteen and stole out through the gate, and found the old chief again. The old man was dying fast, and did not recognize the boy. Amado sat down by him, raised his head upon his own knee, and held the canteen to the blue lips. And so he sat and ministered to the Indian until the life had gone from the body, and then he cried because the old man who gave him tlie buckskin pony was (load. The thunder of tho cannon, the shouting of the captains, and the yells of the Navajos had ceased, and only the occasional crack of a rifle told that some skirmisher out. on the prairie was tryinff a long parting- shot at the enemy. Not until the next day, when he saw scores of ('.cad Indians gathered up nloiiK the race course and on the prairii: and buried in a long trench, did the boy understand that lie had been in a battle, anil that all tho tumult (.hat ragi-d around him when he sat by the dying chief.-, side was made l>y hi* friends tin: N;iv:ijos and his iVk-nils the soldiers trying to kill each othei-.-N._V. Snn._ __ THE BEST OF MIMICS. -d by \Viilkln|t Dcri'pliim ]'r:u-ll.' l..,;ivTO .-inil WullOiiK Mii-ll-,. Thori! K perhaps no "thrr group of insects wliieh ill form ami color are so generally imilatlve, :m.l w::vh naturalist^ have' foil nil more clillinik to deled in' their ha lints. T lie ir bodies of ten resemble the roughened bark of t-hu tree.-, among which they live, or they seem to have growing to them lillle !loc1»s of lichen or muss! which add to the decop!.ion._ The. disguise of the walking leaf Phyllium is the more striking to a naturalist because he will notice that whereas amon;; all other members of the tribe the wing-covers (when they exist) are greatly abbreviated, the very opposite is true in Phyllium, tlie wing-covers, tlie only members which could be made to resemble a leaf to perfection, being greatly developed, while the wings are greatly aborted, as if the wing-covers were here developed for the express purpose of this mimicry. Twenty-five years ago, at the .Tardin d'Acc'iimatiition at 1'aris, some of these walking leaves were exhibited alive, They were placed on growing plants, from which tlie larger part of the leaves were stripped, that the insects might not too easily conceal themselves. H a larg-e placard announcing- the presence of these creatures had not drawn attention to them, certainly no one would have recognized anything extraordinary; and rvcn as it wiks, many a person, after examining the case with cure, laft without seeing anything but the plant, and wit]) tho opinion that what the placard told them 1o look for was some minute object too microscopic for their sight, Even those who knew what to expect had often a long search to discover what was in reality in full sight The same was true of the liviugspeci- mens at Edinburgh. Of one of them Murray .says: "For the greatest period of its life it so exactly resembled the leaf on which it fed that when visitors were shown it they usually, after looking carefully over the plant for a minute or two. declared thoj - could ••• no iniiect. It had then to be more minutely pointed out to them; and although seeing is notoriously said to b» beliering, it looked so absolutely the same as the leaves among which it r»»t- ed that this test rarely satisfied them, 'and nothing would c'onvlnoe them that there was a real live insect there but the test of touch. H had to be stirred up to make it move." Undoubtedly this imitative resem- blanoe is the moststrikiug in the walking Itaf, but it is quite as complete in many of tho walking sticks proper. The naturalist, Wallace, familiar with them in tropical forests, says that in the Moluccas they are found "hanginf on tho shrubs that line the for»st pathsj and they resemble sticks so exactly in color, in the small rugoiities of thfl bark, in the knots and small branches imitated by the joints of the legs, which are either pressed close to the body or stuck out at random, that it Is absolutely impossible by the eye alone to distinguish tho real dead twlft which fall down from the tree* «yer«- head from th« living insects." And ho adds that he has "often looked at thftnv in doubt, and has been obliged to u»« th« »«nse of touch to determine the point"— Samuel H. Scudder, in Harper's Mag-azino. —The man who li»osonl'y for himsall {••nrared in very small bu»ia«M.— Ktm'6 Horn.
