Matter that a Gen eral thing too Little attention from . Big Miner is the time when the Ordi nary Over of feathered Stock thinks there is no need of looking after ventilation. Yet the summer ventilation of the poultry House is As necessary As the Winter ventilation of the same. There Are two makeshift for proper ventilation one is to leave the doors and trin Dows open at night with the fowls exposed to All kinds of night prowlers and the other is to Tuyub up list , m a place Tutu be considered intolerable As a bed chamber for the of the fowls. The writer has known some great disasters to follow the first coarse and he cannot doubt that much suffering follows the second. One old Man that had left his poultry House door open during summer nights for years finally had his roosts raided by a hungry Coon. Another Man had his entire flock of More than 20 fowls destroyed in one night by Home wild animal from the Forest though this Man lived in the Edge of a Village of More than inhabitants. The poultry House May be exposed to the air in perfect safety by an expense of a few cents for Vire net Ting. Two Inch mesh is suitable where the danger is not great from rats and weasels but As Inch wire mesh costs Little it is usually safer to use that. As soon As the weather becomes warm in the Spring take out the windows and put in this wire net Ting nailing it on Over the outside so if it becomes necessary during a Sud Den cold Spall to put in the windows temporarily this can be done without trouble. The fresh air thus admitted b of great value to the health and Comfort of the g. Thurston. In country gentleman. Among the poultry. Feed in Clear surfaces. Dampness is fatal to Young turkeys.

The Bone Cut Ter does not grind Bones but cuts those fresh from the Butcher and a Pound of Green Cut Bones Given at night so will Cost but Little and prove beneficial in promoting Lay ing. For geese and docks there is no food that will show better results especially for those that Are growing it supplier the elements of growth my thus Ulm from having Awatin Caa. Do give too mock it moderately a a of other h. As it has been the Rule in this coun try at horse shows and elsewhere to try a horse for lameness by walking Anil trotting the animal in a straight line 10 and fro usually on a hard pave ment and Nith a Lead Halter or bridle Only the recently expressed of prof. Zurn. Director of the veterinary clinical school of Leipzig Are pertinent and instructive. He strongly recommends that the horse should not be walked along a straight line but chiefly in a Circle then the higher and lower parts of the limbs outside and inside the Circle Are equally weighted. For example if during this ring exer Cise the halting of the lower leg in creases Oil account of the greater weight the ailment resides in the lower part Hoof Coronet or on the contrary if the halting of the out Side leg increases the seat of the ail ment is in the higher Region shoulder a greater amount of strength is required to remove this limb and one can understand that the Exten Sion and supporting of the foot is More difficult. After a Viii examined the horse in motion you must explore the limb with the hand in order to assure yourself if you do not perceive any sign 01 Leat whether or not there Are traces of funds or contusion invisible swelling whether or not pressure of the fingers causes abnormal pain. Inflammation of the Lymphatic a Ijssel in the Vicinity of the extremities under the Hock ring hones etc., May also Aasc of fir of persistent halting it May happen that certain Muscles particularly those be Hind the Hock will decrease in volume because atrophied. This atrophy of the Muscles is caused not Many Complete paralysis of the shoulder and Hock but particularly and in most cases it is due to ankle Losis of these joints. In this exploration of the halting limb with the hand an excellent sign is Given by the pulsation of the artery situated on the. Interior of the Canon in the Hind limb. If the pulse is feeble and Little perceptible the cause of lameness is in the top part of the limb if Strong and slightly perceptible the seat of the ailment is in the lower part and generally in the Hoof. Horses with a halting foot place it Down reluctantly the pain they Manifest is sometimes greater while resting on the toe and sometimes while on the Heel according As the suf Fering part is front or Back of the Hoof. Horses limping from the Hock Bend the pastern joint completely. Shuddered at his Tan shoes a. White haired old Showalter su11 making before the War i was going Down a quiet Side Street in the old Quarter the other said a citizen who according to the new Orleans times Democrat likes to explore the out of the Way nooks and Corners when i had my attention attracted by a quaint Little establish ment that seemed to be half Cobbler s shop and half living room. It was in a sort of or a attached to a cot Tage and its Only occupant was a j White haired old chup Besid my Over a j last in front of a work Bench. The seclusion of the place and the absence of any sign excited my curiosity and i made the half soling of a pair of imaginary shoes a pretext for going in and asking some questions. The old Man received Rie courteously but told me at once that he did 110 general work. He gave his whole time he said to a few customers whose footwear he had made for 40 years and he was even thinking of dropping one or two of them. In the conversation that Fol Lowed i Drew out a curious Story. The old fellow is one of the few survivals from the Days of All hand shoemaking and his Little shop has been a sort of snug Harbor in which he has rested Nhi Lethe tide of modern methods a inept on and made his Craft almost a lost Art. He has been there Ever since 1s52. And enough of his original patrons have stuck to to keep him Busy All the time. Occasionally one would die but then As he in eau Ottly explained he was constantly getting slower Job mitc of Olla tilt and the falling off of custom maintained a very pretty equilibrium. When 1 looked in he was at work on a pair of Fine Calfskin boots and was making them exactly As they were made before War. All the old gentlemen rho patronized him still wore boots and a Wall Cabinet was filled with their an Tique lasts. I observed Abonit a dozen with death notices clipped from news papers pasted on the heels. They be longed to patrons who have passed away. The old Man told me he Ivas nearly 70. He spoke with pain of the decadence of his profession and when he looked at my Tan shoes he shut Kansas self feeder. It filled truth shelled Cora mad cattle Allon de. La run to it at will. When we came to Kansas 16 Many Farmers owned 100 to 500 head of cattle they pastured Thieu in the strip in summer and brought them Back in Winter to feed. They made self feed ers As follows set posts firmly in the ground about two feet apart one Way and six to eight the other. Fail on strips for Sills Lay a tight floor on the Sills fasten a Stout Board a foot wide a around the platform Western self feeder. Which May be any length desired but usually 12 to 16 feet. Make a Box b that will be two feet less in length and Width than the plat form set it so that there will be a space of a foot All around the Box or bin makes the trough for the cattle to eat from. Allow a space of about one Inch at the Bottom of the bin for the shelled Corn to work out As the cattle eat it. They filled these feeders full of shelled Corn and let the cattle run to them at will. They had to use Cau Tion until they got the cattle used to eating All they could get. They had a lot of hogs to run with cattle to eat what Corn the cattle wasted. Since the strip has been settled the Stock is not kept in Large herds. The Cut shows an end View of this feeder. Ohio Farmer. Do hoga Iferd a writer says that one objection to keeping hogs in Small Lota is that they do not exercise enough. That depends on the size of the lot the size of the hog and the purpose for which he is being kept. The hog that has completed his growth and ii be ing fitted for the Market not need very much exercise a Little will keep him in Good health. The boar that is being kept for Breeding Pur poses needs a Good Deal of exercise. The pig that is growing needs some exercise but not so much As some of us imagine. The hog that has been developed along the lines that prizes has not the inclination to exer Cise that the old wild boar had. If Given a fair sized lot the pigs will suit themselves in the farm ers review. How does the spigot of Sotir expenditures compare with the Bung Hole of your receipts we the aspect a pleasant in this regard and will get pleasanter still during t900. Let 4ke weather govern the depth of Colt motion of com a wet the roots fill a ii they fun for the loggers. How the cart Ris out of lit Maine Woods a mute new hands. There is always in. The crowd one poor Chap who has been the butt of the Crew All Winter and who continues to be the butt Here in the uproarious gang. I have seen a dozen men lying on their backs on the floor their stockinged feet converging to a common Center. They had in the toils one poor Chap whom they were kicking into the air and catching on their feet when he fell. Their huge stockings padded their Ami rep rating Wisn t painful of course but after a Man has been boosted in that Way for ten min utes he is Apt to be a Little vexed says a writer in the Lewis its. Pie journal. At other times the Man. That can be picked on is chased All about Village by his Griff comrades each of whom is armed with a piece of slab. Tis like a pack of baying hounds on the Trail of a Hare. The Man runs for dear life for he knows that once caught he will be spanked until his hair bristles. Frequently the butt is one of those unfortunates known As a jumper a Man whom a yell will Send three feet into the air. And. With the sport on they will never let up on the poor Chap. In order that the thing May not appear too one sided. I will record that one fellow who had been harried and cuffed and spanked and How decl at arrived at Greenville and after connect ing with a pocket peddle and his wares became an entirely transmogrified individual. His vinous courage and his alcoholic strength were something appalling. He came Back to the boarding House Baacl Frith. Fists and thai leg of a chair he licked All Comers drove out the gang and kept them in the Snow two hours in their stocking feet hammering against the windows and begging for admission and the Champion at last let them come Back saying " what s the Good of my Bein a darned fool after All when 75 cents will make me a John Ujj. Habitat of to the Zoolo Rischer an7eiirer or. Yan Hoffen contests the usual state ment that whales and cetacean generally Are inhabitants of the High seas. The various Plankton expeditions have re corded with much exactness the num Bers of whales seen and their observations go to show that Vohales and dolphins Are in reality Shore Hunting Ani Mals. This is confirmed by the Plank ton records which show that surface forms Are most abundant near the Shore where their numbers Are continually reinforced by the larvae of the littoral animals. Where whales Are frequently found in the High seas observation shows that the area is one to which currents carry the abundant Plankton of the Shore Waters. The Flint of writing on the decline of the French language. Jean Finot Points out that at the end of the last Century French was the language spoken by the great est number of civilized people where As now it stands fourth. English is spoken by, russian by 85. 000.000, German by and French by The a lilt. Don t you think my act it med the comedian. My the coast Nova North the letter wat genuine and contained facts. A Farmer american settled in can Ada flooded with a Short time since a letter appeared in these columns signed by or. W. H. Kinkade of Alameda Assiniboia Western Canada which caused that gentleman to receive a great Many inquiries most of them anxious to know if the letter was genuine. To a Large number of the inquiries answers were sent but it was impossible to reply to All. We take pleasure in submitting to our readers a specimen i 1 yes the letter dated december 22, 1899, supposed to have been written by me which you saw in your local papers was genuine and contained facts. I will say of the information received from the Canadian govern ment agents prior to coming , i did not find a single untrue state ment. The Canadian government is an honorable one and its agents dare not misrepresent this country or they would lose their Job. There is quite a bit of land for homesteading yet a very Little close to Market but mainly from six to Twenty Miles from stations. The country hereabouts is a Prairie nearly level slightly rolling not a rough country by any Means. Homestead entries Cost ten dollars on land Tuat has been cancelled there is a five Dollar cancellation fee extra and a some cases an inspection fee of five dollars and where the former occupant has made any substantial improvements there Are Small amounts to pay for improvements. This is a poor place for a poor Man unless lie has brains ar.2 ind git and but with these requisites he can succeed. The population of this part of Assiniboia has doubled during the past two years. There has been As much Prairie broken the past two years As was already broken previous to 1s98. C. P. E. Land Odd sections joining Homestead land Sells at three dollars per acre. Improved quarters within four to Miles of town sell at this Spring. This in not a Garden of Eden at All. No Man need think he can come Here and get Rich in a Short time without much labor but if he will work and be saving he can soon be an Independent Farmer tilling his own soil and get Ting Good returns for his labor. We Burn Coal which costs us j1.8s per Load at the mines which Are so Miles Southwest of us. People with Stock and machinery should come in May so As to have All june to break in. Those who expect to work for wages for the first year or two should come by the end of july to work through Harvest and threshing and then go to the Coal Fields and work All Winter and by Spring he could be ready to improve Homestead. A Quarter Section of railway land Sells at three dollars per acre. The interest is All figured up and. A Man has about to pay Cash and if he ing season his interest for the first year is thrown off and the Ond fall following Purchase he has to pay and then to pay for eight More Falls which makes a total of the Quarter costs him including All interest. Paying for a Quarter of land that Way is like keeping a life insurance policy paid Only it does not take so Long to do it. By a Man Home steading one Quarter and buying an other Quarter gives him a Chance to have a 320-acre farm All his own and have it paid for in ten years and after that he is sure of an easy living if he is any Good at All.
