RemoT the Calf Early.
S. M. SI. writes: It is great cruelty
to allow a calf to suck its dam several
weeks aaii, I lie a remove it. The cow
oftea grieves for her young for many
days, as shown by her moans and at
tempts to reach it. The calf also has
become attached to its dam, and is in
continual misery because it can not
reach her. Besides, it is a loss to the
owner to have the ctlf and cow fretting,
instead of quietly producing milk and
growth. If the calf is removed early,
the motherly instinct is not developed,
and she pays little attention to it. The
calf also learns to drink more readily
than if it first learn? to depend on suck
ing it3 dam.' It 13 humane and econom
ical to feed the calf from the start.
Threshmgr Oat i by Hand.
Some good farmers arc readopting
the old method of threshing their oat
cro)s with a flail, leaving the work to
be done in the winter, and thus furnish
ing employment to men who would
otherwise be idle. There are some
other advantages in Urn practice not in
cluded in the employment it gives to
labor in winter. The freshly threshed
oat straw is reality eaten by stock, and
there are usually enough light oats left in
it to make it rassably good feed. It is
better to leave light oats in the ' straw
than to put them in the bia among the
threshed grain, for unle3s the grain is
carefully graded some of these light oats
will go in the seed and help to deterio
rate the crop. "With hand -threshed oats
in cold weather there has been no dan
ger that vitality of seed has been im
paired by heating. "While the oat is in
the sheaf any dampness in the grain is
absorbed by the chaff, and as the head
is bulky and porous it dries out with
oi injury. Oats threshed by machine
& soon as harvested, and then dumped,
several hundred bishels, perhaps, in
one bin, are pretty sure to heat. It would
be better in such case if the seed were
entirely spoiled instead of having its
vitality impaired. The crop come3 up
weak, and if the season is not every way
favorable it is a partial failure at the
best, anJ this makes a larger proportion
of poor oat3 for soed the subsequent sea
son. American Cultivator.
II ow (o Bulla a Cistern.
The following directions for construct
ing a cistern are worthy of all accepta
tion. We find them in an Indiana pa
per. "In the fi st place, there i3 no
economy in digging a small cistern.
Make your cistern not less than eighteen
feet deep, jug shape, twelve to fourteen
feet across at the widest place. Cement,
as usual, on brick wall. Let it dry
pretty thoroughly; and, if necessary,
put down a tire of chircoal in an iron
ing furnace, or something of the kind, to
help dry it. When the cement is suffi
ciently dry, give the whole surface a
coat of boiled oil and yellow ochre paint,
nddiug a little Japan drier any good
painter will know the proportion. This
coating should be put on with a good,
stiff whitewash brush. Let this stand
until quite dry enough to wash off.
After it has become safely dry let the
water in until about half full; then ia a
few days havo it pumped out to take
the taste of paint out; and then you can
depend upon these great points: Your
cistern will nsver leak; the water will
never become bird by coming in con
tact with the cement; the water will
never ooze h from the outside soil;
there will be no insects or animal
cule in it. The oil paint finally
makes the cemcat wall as hard as glass,
and perfectly impervious to any leak
age either from inside or outside. I
have never built a cistern in any other
way ; have never had a leaky one ; nor
has the water ever become the least
bit 'hardened' from the cement, but it
is always clear as crystal." As for
clearness, no doubt the ordinary pre
cautions would be necessary to pre
vent the admission of impurities from
above. Commercial G.zett?.
Slablsil Anim li.
Farmers who pride themselves upon
their nice horses and cattle are not
aware, perhaps, that a dark stable is a
source of serious discomfort, to a horse
especially. Any one knows how pain
ful it is to the eyes to bo suddenly
forced to face the light ater being shut
up in darkness, and yet a horse is sub
jected to this very paia every time he
is taken from a dark stable into the
light Besides thi, a dark stable is
seldom a dry one. Sunshine and air
are both necessary to the healthfulness
of a stable. In the matter of bedding
you cannot be too careful. Give tho
animals plenty of clean straw or leaves
from tho woods. They will then re
quire less work in tho way of groom
ing than if a'dowed to he down in filth.
Observe regularity in watering as well
as feeding. It h a good plan to water
before feeding in the morning, as the
horses have been eating dry hay through
the night, and are likely to need water
before eating their morning's meal.
Cows, too, are often rendered un.
pleasant objects to look at for the want
of cleanliress ia their stablest Their
coats should be as clean and glossy as
that of a horse, and would be if proper
attention were paid their bedding. Ia
Switzerland cows are groomed with as
much care as horses, and their fine, sleek
appearance and glossy coats as much a
matter of pride to their owners. A hasty
scratching with a curry-comb is highly
appreciated by cows, as may be told by
the earnestness with which they arc
often seen to rub themselves against
trees and posts, although much of that
itching with which cows are troubled
may be relieved by merely keeping them
well supplied with bedding. -Baltimore

A cleanly kept cow will yhld sweot

why th3 very best purely flavored

Small eggs are often caused by fowls
getting too fat. When you know it to
be a fact that the hen is getting old, the
probability is this is the cause of the
small sized eggs and the diminution of
the quantity. If she is allowed to goon
you will be rewarded for your good-will
in keeping her by eggs the size of mar
bles, eventually. A hatchet comes in
play ia such caes.
Most farmers do not attach the value
they should to the milk after the cream
has been taken off. There are possibili
ties with milk and eggs beyond the
vision of the average farmer. It should
be the aim of every mm who gets hi3
living out of the soil to strive to add to
its productiveness. By attempts in this
direction the productiveness of "Kirby

A Dog Who Wore Spectacles.
An opticivn I was told, some time
ago, the following remarkable story of a
Kentucky dog that had become almost
totally Hind. The sound of the horn
no longer aroused his blood, and while
the other dogs of the house went forth
eagerly to the huat, the old afflicted
animal remained behind, sad aud dis
couraged. While at play one day some children,
who knew the poor brute's infirmity,
placed upon his nose a pair of common
spectacles, the glasses of which hap
pened to bo very strong. Tho dog at
once awoke from -his stupor and showed
his pleasure in unmistakable signs. The
glasses were thereupon ad j in ted in the
bc3t possible manner so as to remain on
the rejuvenated animal's nose.
The next morning he started off to the
hunt with the other dogs, aud soon it
was ho who led the pack. But unfortu
nately his spectacles brushed up against
a bush and were tarn from their resting
place. The old dog allowed the others
to pass him, and then picking up the
glasses he carried th m to his master to
have them readjusted.

other times driving the wheel Oae day
two English gentlemen attending the
University called upon Booge (foi he was
an excellent Greek and Latin scholar),
in order that he might construe for them
some passage in Greek which they could
not understand. On looking at it

Hew Some Men Write
Bancroft uses a typewriter and sten
ographer, but he thinks 250 words a
good day's work, and James G. Blaine
thought he was doing well when he
accomplished 1,500 words of a morn
ing. One of the fastest writers among
the public men of to-day is Admiral
Porter, whose brain works like the
wheel of a dynamo throwing off sparks
at every turn and, whose pencil rushes
across the paper at almost telegraphic
speed. Admiral Porter wrote his
history of the United States Navy in
eleven months, and during this time
his average Was at least 75,000 words
a month, or nearly 2,500 words a day,
including Sundays. The book is as
big as a dictionary, and it contains
from 700,000 to 800,000 words. Dur
ing many of these days he did not
write at all, and his average during his
working period ran as high as 5,009
words a day. Admiral Porter is fond
of writing. He never use3 anything
now but a lead pencil, and he says ho
cannot think well without he has a
pencil in his hand. He had a slight
attack of pen paralysis once, and his
hand refuses to act whenever his finger
touches the steel of a pen. He began
his novel writing for amusement, and
he wrote "Allan Dare' without any
idea that it would be published, much
less dramatized. He stands up while
writing, and, when he becomes inter
ested he works right along for hours
at a stretch. Georga Bancroft works
only in the morning. Blaine did hi

that it was scattered throughout the
substance of the paper, while the blue
was ingeniously showered upon the
web while on the "wire," so that it ap

tion, 663 Maim Street, Buffalo, N. Y.:
Gentlemen For several years I have felt it
to be my duty to give to you the facts in rela
tion to the complete cure of a most aggra
vated case of salt-rheum, by the use of your
'Golden Medical Discovery An elderiv Itulv
relative of mine had been a great sufferer from salt-rheum for
upwards of forty years. The disease was most distressing in her
hands, causing the skin to crack open on the inside of the Angers
at the joints and between the Angers. She was obliged to protect
the raw places by means of adhesive plasters, salves, ointments and
bandages, and during the winter months had to have her hands
dressed daily. The pain was quite severe at times and her general
health was badly affected, paving the way for other diseases to
creep in. Catarrh and rheumatism caused a great deal of suffering
in addition to the salt-rheum. She had used faithfully, and with
the most commendable perseverance, all the remedies prescribed
by her physicians, but without obtaining relief. She afterwards
began treating herself by drinking teas made from blood-purify-Jng
roots aud herbs. She continued this for several years but de
