The Herald would be better trying to

Godet flounces are still iu favor, bnt

daunted into dowdlnees by a little "mi turner shower," or by the downpour into
which tbe aforementioned ebower line

Houses for duck's are simple attain*. Thoy aro built plain und
comfortable and havo no furnishings whatever. A duck is differently coiislittltc'd from a lion
and must bo cured for under different
eoiid Iti oils, The hen nootls wiu'tpor
houses and drlor surroundings thnn
does the duck. A duel-;, docs not
mind the cold if she can keep her
feet warm. Uold feet will nlToct
a duck as a frozen comb docs a
hen, ■retarding; laying nnd inducing;
ailments. The feathers of a duck
arc almost impenetrable nnd will
withstand almost any degree of
cold. Again, a duck cannot stand
the amount of confinement in n hoosc
that a hen c;in. Sho is more restless in disposition and ia given to
exorcise in a greater degree than
is a hen. JndigosUcn ts not bo
prevalent with ducks as with
In tho first cut is shown a sim-
plu house that may ho built at
small expense. It is plain and
has a shed roof. Such a house
shutil'd bo built of rough     hoards,
12 inches by 1 inch, nnd joints covered hy strips, IJ inches hy 1 ftich.
Tho roof should be nmde Watertight
and covered with tarred paper, shingles or tin. Tho outside should bo
well drained around the bottom
that It may not he duuiji. Somo
advocate board floors raised six to
eight inches from tho ground
and covered from four tn six inches wilb dry earth, straw or
leaves. Tho writer favors tho using of board floors in all houses for
chickens, but thinks it not ossc-ntiu.1
for ducks, ff tho house Is well
drained on the outside and (hu
earth floor Is covered with hay,
straw or leaves, It will be pcrfoct-
ly satisfactorily. There must, not
be dampness In tho house, ns the
birds will not do so well. While
thoy aro given water on. Ihe outside, they must hnve comfortable
quarters iu which to "warm up" or
"dry out."
Tho bulldfog shown may he constructed of any dimensions desired,
according to tho size of flock to bo
kept. A houso 11! by 14* feet, will
accommodate nicely a Mtn-k of
a dozen. There aro no Interior ar-
rcngoments whatever, simply the
floor spare of tho building. It is
bettor not to use nests. Somo

! Prof. I. P. Itobeits of Cornell University, says: Cover crops mny lu a
measure take the place of fertilizers
und manures. They are not, however,
a universal poiueon for all soil do
lieiencies, neither nro they a full substitute iu all cases toy fertilizers,
There is'always a wide field for the
profitable use of one or all on the
concentrated forms of fertilizers named, and in many cases there is also
a special plnce for Lire use uf fertilisers, therefore tho more need of
h nest goods. Commercial fertilizers
furnish available plant food, but no
humus. Tho cover crop furnishes
both, but it is only fair to say that
tho plant foods in the former ure
more available than in the latter.
Cover crops improve the physical
condition of the soil, lessoning the
cost of Ullage. Physically, fertilizers
benefit tlu soil little or none, The
humus furnished by the rover crops
increases tho availability of the
plant food already in the soil; fertilizers do not. Cover crops shade
the land nnd conserve moisture.
It is impossible to accurately compare tho cost of fertilizers with the
cost of seeds for the cover crops
and tho preparation of the soil for
them. Tho cost of increasing productively by extra tillage, by the
uso of fertilizers, |>y cover crops, or
by all throe means, can only he determined in each enso hy the farmer
interested. I give below a single tl-
liir-tr.ition of what a cover crop contains, knowing Unit nnolhor cover
crop under other eot.dit.ions, might
either be more or less*valuable. Second growth of clover, furnished in
roots und tops per acre, the following: Nitrogen WS.Sfl lbs., phosphoric acid 07.85 lbs., potash 109,90 lbs.
Thoro is removed by 25 bushels of
wheat und accompanying straw, nitrogen -tU lbs., phosphoric acid UO
lbs., and potash 27 lbs. It is believed thai most of the nitrogen taken
up by legumes is secured from the
uncombinud nitrogen in the atmosphere. The clover did not add to
either iho store of phosphoric acid
or potash. The plant took them
from the soil attl made them available.
A Cli«»|ilv -tlmi*! Grain Chat*.
Jh a great many farm barns the

the hasemuut thoro is no suitublo

out of the difficulty 1 put in some

Two Types or Beef HMda-Tha 11 art!runt
and th* Shorthorn— .that» n_t-f
H-nad Klin nld IU.
Jn studying the respective points
of the beef and dairy animals us outlined it is best to conunetico with
the hoad. There are two types of
beef heads us shown—namely, Hereford and Shorthorn, says fanners'
bulletin No. 148, issued by the United Status Department of Agriculture. The beer head should be
short and compact, medium in size,
refined fn appearance, clean cut in
contour, broad, with wide forehead,
indicating a good supply of nervous forco; the eye large, clear and
limpid; the ear fine, active and covered with soft, silky hair; tho mouth
large; the muzzle medium in size,
dewy and free from coarseness; the
jaw medium heavy, woll fleshed,
with a good opening between the
submaxillary space; tho poll rather
brood and flat, and tho horns
medium sized.
The oye is a very Important factor in the makeup of tiny animal.
It receives its nerve supply directly
from the brain, and Its clearness,
brightness and size indicate tho degree of nervous energy and disposition of the uniuuil. An animal
showing a large amount of white
around tho eye or witb a small
pupil and    a    suppressed eye is gen-
with littlo dillietilty.   Wheat or rye
will  follow even o less slant,     but
with  bulky stun* Ilka ground      feed

The Interior of the chute ought not
to be much less thnn six inches
square; 0 by 8 would bo even bet- ■
tor, Tho interior should be free
from all obstructions. The hoppor-
shupod device just under the bin is
ipiitu necessary with oats and ground
feed to give greater headway. Thu
cut-off, a, is an ordinary draw supported hy two cleats on each side. |
An extension is also made to tho
rear hoard of the chute so that It
projects about one-half inch outward, thus giving chance for holding a bag if necessary, . ■

a poor feeder. A broad ami high
forehead gives ample space for the
housing of the bi'mln, which, of
course, directs and controls Ihe nervous onergy und Influences digestion, assimilation, circulation and
other functions of the animal organization.
The nostril of the beef animal
should be medium In size, with a
clear, bright lining inembruno. If
it fs large, it indicates a pro-;
disposition to scrofulous diseases
and the unnecessary oxidation and
waste of food. If lt is small.
there is not sufficient room for
the proper development of the air
Pussages, and this is an Indication
of hereditary weakness. Under sin h
circumstances sulticlent air will
not be drawn tnto the lungs to
complete the oxidation of Ihe
food, which must procoid rapidly in the case of animals consuming large quantities of "roughness."
As the chief function of cattle is to
consume large quantities of food for
the formation of flesh, fat and
milk; it is necessary that the mouth
be largo and tho tooth firmly set. '
A medium sized horn, a refined ear
and an intelligent, active appearance are all indications of considerable Importance, as they arc associated with good breeding, sulli-
cient nerve energy, freedom from
sluggishness and gentleness of disposition—all points of great importance to the cattle feeder. i
