my farm -barn here, Ofteen feet square
dusideiaeaaure, and ns deep ah I could
build them inaide of my tarn, and have
them reach the roof-plate.
This size pit does best to have thirty or
forty head of cattle cat from it both night
.and torniog--it is altogether too large
for ten head and much of the ensilage
would spoil after the pit was opened, and
we began to feed if I did not have fully
thirty head of cattle to cat it up. Every
feed night and morning it should be rak
ed off the top of the pit and keep the en
silage level in the pit all the time and
aot stir it up at all until you are ready
for the feed. It is always warm then
and is eaten Very greedily hy cattle, and
in fact, horses, mules, sheep and hogs
Will dive rr it ana leave most any omer
kind of feed but grain. This corn that if
jrrowo for ensilage should be planted in
rows and he stalks far enough apart so
that each stalk will have one or
more ears of corn on them, and the
ground needs good, deep ploughing and
jthorough tillage. The better you do the
work the richer you will get. rheti the
corn gets matured enough to pass the
milk stajjo, and before the kernels get
glazed bard, or the cornstalks begin to
dry up or wither, the fodder is then in its
best and sweetest condition. It should
then be cut perfectly green and run
through some kind W a power fodder
cutter and packed right into the silo,
The silo pit or pits are all filled each
year. I now have six of them. The
ensilage, when cut, will have fully three
4o four quarts of gram m eacn buanel
basket of ensilage, aud is a sufficient
grain ration for almost any auimal. A
good, fair-sized cow or ox will oat from
one and one-half to two baskets of cusi-
lage twice a day. One aero of good
ground hero in Ohio will grow as much
feed as ono animal can eat in a whole
Jrear, and it does not cost us twenty dol
ars per acre to do the entire work.
When your southern farmers supply
themselves with silos and ensilage, and
will feed their farm stock liberally iu

weather strikes them, then feed and

-They inuxt feed every day iu the year
wheu needed, and the dairy business for
- both cheese and butter can bo better
done than in the North. I have made
just as good butter for three years on my
Tennessee farm as I ever made here in
Ohio. (That was in McMinnville, War
ren county, Tennessee.) I do not know
but that it is possible for the South to
beat the world in stock-raising if they
will only do thorough work and feed
It has been the common practice in
- Tennessee to let stock run at large and
in fair order. when the grass is green and
good, but never get them up when the
summer pasture is gone and feed to keep
the growth and flesh, so they shrink up
and die of starvation. It is this great
Stglect that ruins the stock industry in
the South, so far as my observation goes.
The illos and ensilage can reform this
I advise the using of only one thick
ness ef such ceiling, because as wet or
damn ensilage is put into the pit it swells
up the ceiling both air and water tight,
and remains so until emptied, when the
lumber then dries out evenly and quick
ly and never rots. If two thicknesses
re used, with paper between them, or
without paper, it then holds moisture
longer and the board will not rot in spite
of all your wishes in the matter; besides it
does no earthly good; for when the pit is
air and water tight, that is all that is
needed, and a dozen thicknesses more
would do no earthly good, while it would
waste much money. I have used my
pits for years, so I do know that what I
advise in the matter is perfectly correct.
None of you need to hesitate. By using
ensilage the corn needs no busking,
. neither do you have to waste time in
-taking it to the mill; the grain keeps
soft and good all the time, because it is
tu me warm, moist ensilage, una every
particle of it makes good, digestible feed.
I am now feeding it to dairy cows with
grand results. They give almost as-much

Pure Water for Horses.
If the importance connected with fur
nishing pure water for horses wn fully
understood, we huye no doubt but thnt
many farmers would provide better
means for watering their horses than they
now have. Many diseases which horses
are subject to are the result of drinking
uiimre water. The owner of a lance
stable iu New York city began some
time since to Alter the water for his
horses, and states that since doing bo the
cases of colic have decreased 75 per cent.
Pure spring waters do not need to be alt
ered of course, but where horses are wa
tered from ponds, or pools, or streams
which are liable to become stagnant or
anywise polluted, some provision should
be made to purify-1 ho water before the
animals are allowed to drink it. A
cheap filter could be made that need cost
but little except what labor is put upon
it. Take a good sized barrel aud fill-it
with charcoal, coarsly ground, placing
brnsh and gravel in it to keep the char
coal in position. II the water is allowed
to run throuuh a barrel filter in this
manner it will be evcu purer than the
best spring water. It is receotmneuded
that sulphur be put into the charcoal.
This is said to give the water a medici
nal quality vvhieh is very valuable iu
keeping horses iu good condition .

An English Artist's Strange Experience In
n Dead Jloom.
A well-known English photographer
will vouch for the following facts: Ko
was called in one day to wko a photo
graph of a young girl of about twen ty,
who had died a few days before, lno
corpse was laid out upon a bed with tho
hands clasped ovor the breast. Deatu
had como very gently to her, and, ex
cept for the stillness, sho lay there as if
in sleep, borne flowers had boon strewn
over tho body, and on tho floor by the
side of tho bed and standing out in black
rcliof ayaiast it was tho coflla. Tho
photographer silently adjusted his len3
and took tho photograph. During tho
ten minutes needod for tho exposure the
photographer paced up and down in tho
ong corridor outsido tho room whore
the dead girl lay. When ho returned he
saw that oh tho lid of tho coffin was a
flower, which was not so before. How did
that flower como there? No ono had en
tered tho room, tho windows wore closod
and there was not a breath of air stirring.
Why was tho flowor now lying on the
co3in, whon a fow minutes boforo it was
on tho bed botwocn tho hands of tho
corpse? Tho photographer listened,
but ho could hear no sound except tho
beating of his own heart. In a fow
moments, however, ho doterminod to
dismiss the question from his mind, and
busied himself with packing up his
instruments. Then he paused possibly
tho falling flower had left a trace on
tho negative, or, as the day was
gloomy, tho photograph might not bo
quite successful, lie would try again.
A second photograph was taken and tho
artist returned homo. That night, sit
ting up lato in his studio, ho dovoloped
the two nogativos. Tho position of tho
corpso was not tho saaio xn tho two
nogativos. lho photographor strained
his oyes, half disbolloving tho ovidonco
of his own senses, but thero wore tho
two nogativos boforo him, tolling him
in their silent, unmistokablo truthful
ness that between tho taking of the
two photographs tho arm of tho dead
girl had distinctly moved. Tho mystery
of tho flowor on tho ooffln was solved,

How to Test Seed.
It is au easy matter to test the vitality
of grass aud clover seeds, by placing a
given number, say one hundred, of the
variety to be tested between woolen
cloths, moistened with water. Care
should be taken to boil the cloths before
using, to scald the plute or pan in which
the ciotns are lain, ana to use only re
cently boiled water with which to moist
en the cloths, in order to retard the
growth of fungi, or molding. To or more
cloths may first be laid upon the plate
or pan, the seeds distributed on the up
per one, and another cloth laid upon the
seeds, buthcient water should be ap
plied to keep the cloths moist. A plate
oi glass laid over the plates or pans
would add to the efficiency of the device
by retarding evaporation, and protecting
the interior by floating germs of fungi
At a temneratur of 70 to 80 decrees
Fahrenheit good seed should germinate
in from a week to ten days. Seeds wil
germinate after being under such in flu
ences several weeks, but seed that do not
respond in from seven to ten days under
such favorable influences can be of little
value when subjected to the vicissitudes
of an ordinary seed-bed. Illinois station

A worthy widow, Mine. GuindorU, has
been fleeced on a larje scle by a veri
table company of Paris swindlers, says
a correspondent. It was all through a
puppy-dog1, and happened thuswise.
Mme. Guindorff lived in tho Hue do
Rennes, and had a canine favorite
called Lolo. Ono day the pet escaped
into the street and wandered at largo,
being eventually captured by a person
named Roger, who saw tho address of
tho dog's mistress on its brai3 collar.
Roger is a chevalier d'industrio of the
first water. Ho is also a good-looking
fellow, and when he brought homo her
dog to tho aged but amorous widow she
fell in lovo with him at first sight and
told him to call again. This Roger
did, and soon found out that the Widow
Guindorff possessed a fortune of 1,000,
000 francs, or 40,000, invested in vari
ous soourities, besido some valuablo
houso property. Roger began by
pilfering plate, jewelry and small
articles from his elderly dame,
and theso he deposited with divers
and sundry avuncular relatives estab
lished in official monts-da-pieta through
out tho city. By and by Roger related
his good luck to his po' house compan
ions, who also rosolvod to make the
widow's acquaintance, tho rascals event
ually forming themselves, under Rog
er's lead, into a firm for tho purpose of
"exploiting"' hor. Thoy first inveigled
hrr into tho bourse speculations, one of
them opening a 'b.-g;:s" office for this
purpose. Uy this "means and by making
a strong point of "ofilce disbursements"
they fleeced the widow to tho tuna of
about fi,000. Then thoy made her
effect a loan, got her to mortgage some
of hT property induced her to embark
in coriimerclal 'attain speculations in
ostrich eggs, Gtpc diamonds and pict
ures and would have sent her eventu
ally to the French equivalent for the
work-honso but for tvro reanon3. These
were: First, that the old lady's relatives,
hearing aboUD her new-fangled friends
ralhr late in tho day, though inter
fered on her behalf; and secondly, that
tho thieves foil out among themselves
and quarreled ott tho plunder. Tho
police being sot to work all the mem
bers of tho band except Roger, the
founder of the! charming community,
were arrested arid will bo tried.
