Feeding Corn and Oils.
F. II. Steuben Co., N. Y.f writes to
the Prairie Farmer: There is no ques
tion but that oats are the best grain we
can raise on which to feed horses; they
contain more of the elements of nutri
tion than any other grain, and therefore,
horses that are fed on oats can perform
their labor with a less degree of fatigue
than when fed on any other article of
food. Oati are the ino3t natural food for
horses; and with this grain Ihcy can bs
brought to the highest stato of physical
perfection. On the contrary, corn-fed
horses lack vitality, sweat easily, and
consequently cannot perform so much
labor as will horses fed on oats. Corn
is deficieut in some of the elements of
nutrition so necessary to replace tho
constantly worn out material of the
To make good butter, uniformly, re
quire both judgment and skill. There
is far more in the business than merely
milking the cow?, skimming tho pans,
managing the cream and churning the
l.uttcr. All these, and more too, may
be done with cara and precision, the
butter may be well worked, and after
all an inferior salt may spoil it. We
know a party whose butter is preferred
by good customers, because "it is al
ways even and alike,'' qualities it could
not maintain except by constant care in
every operation of manufacture or ma
nipulation. And there is no branch of
mral industry which "p 13's" better than
butter making, after the reputation of
an especial "brand" his become estab
lished. Persons who are particular
about their butter ought to bo willing
to pay a good price for it, for it is not
easy to produce it.- Cincinnati Com

The General-rnrpme Horo.
A writer in the Western Farm Journal
discourses wisely: "While it is be
lieved to be impossible to produce an
all purpose horse or even to establish a
general-purpose brcc.l of horses, it is be
lieved to be entirely practicable to pro
duce horses adapted to a variety of pur
poses, or general-jurpose horses, by the
use of sires of one or the other of the
well-established spjcial-purpose breeds;
and it is my purpose to show that the
trotter possesses special characteristics
and is better adapted to the production
of the genera!-purpose horse than
any other having breeding suf
ficient to produce uniformity in the off
spring. While many general-purpose
animals are as profitable practically an
individually the equals of many special
purpose animals or full-bloods, yet they
cannot perpetuate themselves as general
purpose animals, for the reason that a
sire whose breeding represents general
characteristics, however good he may be
as an individual, has no power of choos
ing whether he will give to his offspring
one quality or another, or a combination
of any or all of them, and hence has 1
power of producing uniformity in h:
The tendency in such cases is to tran?
. ii only the qualities adapted to th

uhose breeding represents only spcc! il
characteristics or is a full-blood of some
special-purpose breed must transmit tc
his offspring these special qualities 01
none, and hence must produce uniform
ity in his offspring. Aside from feed
and care, success ia breeding general
purpose horses depends on choosing
sire of some general-purpose breed
whose special characteristics come aa
near as possible to what is desired in thi
offspring. Our Country Home.

Medical Journal: Sl ice the first year is
Isy far the most critical period of life,

evidence- whether a baby is thriving

that parents should, through
out the lirt year, weigh their
babies and record the result every week,
43 is now habitually done in the bcit
hospitals and asylums for i ifants. Dur
ing the first three days of life there is
always a lo?s of weight which should be
fully regained by the seventh day, by
which a baby fu ;ht to weigh fully as
much as at birth. During the njxt three
weeks there shou'.d be a gain of at least
from two to four ounces every week.
The greatest gain of weight throughout
life is during the first live months, the
maximum b i:ig usually attained during
the second month, that is, when a baby
is sail to be cmc month (30 to CO
.lays) o'd. The increase during this
nnxinmm month should be from
four to seven nunc weekly, and during
the three succeeding months about five
ounces weekly. During the remaining
seven mouths of tho first year the gain
should be at least two to four ou iccs
weekly. Tho gain is less than iudi
rnted at times when the infant may
suffer, whether from tecthi-g or other
cause. Finally the growth of the head

The talk of a new telegraph line be

miles west of Laramh, was set up four
times, and each tinis hacked down by
Indian tomahawks. Each time there
was a bloody skirmish with the redskins
for temporary possession of tho stump.
At last the pole was given to a young
man who is now high up in the manage
ment of the Wester i Union. He laid a
mine in the hob, set up a new pole,
trailed the fuse to an ambush of rocks
close by and waited with two armed
"riends. Then a band of eight Sioux
cam.3 along and held a war dance around
the pole. When the mine was fired, all
but three were killed, and those three
carried off Minie balls with them. The
powder blew up the polo again, but it
cleaned the hole out nice'.y for a new
one, which was thereafter 1st alone.
