Valuable II hits. j
Houses lor duck's aro simple affairs, They aro built plulti and
comfort,,,11le and have no luin-
Ishfnga whatever. A duck is differently constituted fiotn a hen
and must bu cured for under different
conditions. Iho hen needs warmer
houses and drier surroundings thnn
does Ihu duck. A duck, docs not
mind the cold If sho enn keep Iur
feet warm. Cold foot will affect
a duck as a frozen comb docs a
hen, retarding laying nnd Inductitu*
ailments. Tho fcaifu-rs of a duck
are almost impenetrably anil will
withstand a-ihost auy degree of
cold. Again, a duck cannot stand
the amount of confinement in a house
that a hen can. She is more restless In disposition and is Riven to
exorcl'So in a Reenter degree than
is a hen. Indigestion Is not So
prevalent with ducks as with
In the first cut fs shown a simple house that may be built nt
small expense. It Is plain and
tins a bliid roof. Sui,h a house
should bo built of rough     boards,
12 Inches by 1 Iwh, and joints covered by strips, 3 inches by 1 fnch.
The roof should bo made water ti^ht
and covered with tnrri-d paper, sh n-
glcs or tin. Tho outside should be
well drained around tho bottom
that It muy not bo damp. Some
advocate board floors raised six to
eight Inches from the ground
nnd coveted from four to six inches with -ry earth, straw or
leaves. Tho writer favors the tis-
tfng ol board floors in all houses for
chickens, but thinks it not essential
for ducks. If the houso Is well
drained on the outside and tho
earth floor Is covered with hay,
straw or leaves, it will bo pcrfuit-
ly satisfactorily. There must not
bo dampness in iho houso, ob tho
birds will not do so well. While
thoy are given water on tho out-
6.tie, they must hive conifer! a! Jc
quarters in which to "warm up" or
"il.y out."
Tho builtlfng shown mny be constructed of any dimensions desired,
accordiu.tr, to tho size of fit c'*; to bo
kept. A house 11! by 1-1 foot will
accommodate nicely a flock of
a dozen. There nre no interior arrangements m hut ever, slmi ly tho
floor space of the tuiiliJlr.'*;, It is
better not to vm nr«tV. Some
raisers use a plain nost. as shown
In tho second cut. These, nests aro
made or one tn*h hoard., twelve
Inches high and sixteen inches hrr*
set fourteen inhes apart nnd held
together In front with a three-inch
ttiip.     Tho nests aro nailed to the
b..ck of the house. But more thnn
half the eggs are laid en tho lit or
nf tho houso or fn tho yard, and if
permitted a duck wilt build herself  a nest to her liking.
When two or more breeding pens
aro to be kept, tho plun of the houso
shown may bo extendi d to any
length desired and makes nn excellent breeding house for the farmer
to loop ducks ln.
An Indosuro should bo given the
breeding ducks, as they do better
confiiii.d thnn when nt liberty, (live
plenty ot room arid Inclose the run
with two inch wlro mesh two feet
Wide. If water Is accessible, It
should be Inclosed by the mesh wire
fencing of the samo width as for
the run,
A duck houso with an arrangement
of wire runs ln tho water Is on n'd-
mlrabto plan for farmers who hav*
running water on their farms,

A good example ts just about ns
catching as a bad one, and along
agricultural lines we think more so.
No man ran go to work and Increase tho productiveness of his
fluids, raise better crops nnd stock,
fix his home grounds, up nnd put
Into his homo modern Improvements but his less enterprising
neighbors are stimulate:) to follow
his example. For Instance, where
a man of this progressive type
Keeps his side of the highway
neatly mown and trimmed free from
weeds his neighbor . across tho road
Is almost compelled to do likewise
or else have his own slovenliness
thus continually emphasized. There
have lo bo pioneers In tl Is good
work of agricultural progress and
development, those who lot the
pare and pave the way for better
conditions. With such examples to
pattern after the masses are ready
to follow.

The hives uboi! are known as the
Lon_j Ideal and were mado to order.
They hold 20 Langstroth frames
crosswise and are expressly used for
extracted honey. The total cost uf
the hives, fixtures aud houso was
912ft, not coLtitlng 1h3 bees. The
top row of hives rests on a frame
just high enough sa 1 can raise, the
covers and look Into thorn comfortably, as the interior view shows; tho
other row rests on the floor. Tho
hives ure only ono story, so there
Is no use for queen excluders and no
tiei in* up to be done.
Th j hive entrances match the corresponding slots in the side of tho
bouse and when the bees enter the
slot or"entrtin*?e~tliey go directly into
their respective hives. Each alternate notice is painted a darker color
for the purpose of helping the bees
to mark their hive.
The bee house was built in March.
About tho middle ot April, when the
woathcr was favorable to open hives,
I took the Long Ideal hives iuto my
home npinry and transferred thu bees
und comb from the chaff hives into
them. It was ouly necessary to take
three frames at a time and lift them
from on- into tho othor. Toward
evening, when the bees stopped flying, 1 closed tho entrances with wire
netting, loaded them ou a wagon and
drovu to thc bee house uml Ihey wore
soon arranged in position. The next
day, which was pleasant, tho bees
cnino out in great numbers and evidently became somewhat confused
as to which were tholr right hives
and thrco hives were deserted, the
boes having joined some of the others. But 17 built up nicely and in
Muy I divided three of the stronger
ones and made tho full complement .
of 20. In tbo latter part ot May I
removed the division board and lilted
the hives with frames of comb foundation. I
Thcr** wns not a swarm to issue
which wns as t had hoped. The bees
are always comfortable, being shaded
from the hot nun, and they seem to
huvo suitlclout room on 20 frames in
ono tody. It Is very comfortable for
Iho operator too. I took from this
h'luse lu September 650 pounds of
very nice honey, which brought $01.*
The yield in my homo yard was much
Mow tho average, so that year cun
bo , classed a poor honey year. As
there ure enough surplus combs built
1 expect an avorago crop of l.O'iO
pounds a year from this house. No
further expense Is necessary, only
runt and cartage In bringing home
the lionoy. I visited the house during summer only onco every week or
two.—P. 0, Herman, ln Orange Judd
rract-ical Kiperlenee In Uslnr II ta Advantage In th* sntb'e.
Ground gvpsiim, according to one
o* o'ir farm Investigators, may undoubtedly be used to advantage In
tho stable. Tho nitrogenous com*
pound In tho urine by thc aid of certain micro organisms, always present in the air, is converted very
t.uickly Into carbonnte ot ammonia.
This is volatile r.nd will escape If
somo sultablo absorbent or Uxor la
not present. Gypsum Is such a fixer,
converting ihu carbonate Into sulphate ot ammonia, which Is not volatile
Practical conrljislons from experiments aro (1) thit tho proper place
to ubo gypsum is In the stable, where
iindoubtcd'y Iha greater waste ot nitrogen, as ammonia, frequently occurs, and (2) that when the manure
heap is kept compact and moist, there
Is not nny considerable escopu of ammonia.
Fermentation increased the availability of tho phosphoric add. It is to
be noticed that a considerable loss of
potash took place. This must bo duo
to a certain amount of drainage from
the manure soaking Into the board
floor. This drainage was no doubt Increased by the water used In keeping tho manure constantly moist.
This result corroborates tho conclusion that loss of potash cannot be
entirely guarded against without a
water tight, concrete floor If the
manure Is to be kept moist by rain
or artificial means.
swine IIMfttM,
George, in Farm Journal, says:
Thoro Is uo great sucret of success In swine raising—a good, warm,
dry, woll ventilated hoghouso and
puro water for all seasons, a good
pasture for spring, summer and fall
and a variety of Iced tor winter,
with thrifty, itrong pigs, and success Is youri,
We must keep the fattening pigs
worm. If thoy aro kept In a cold
pen or aJlowi-d to nn out In cold
weather, at least 2ft per cent, more
food will be required to produce a
given gain.
Tho snucallng pig, with staring
coat und humped back, who crowds
and pushes In tho steamy nest
for a warm place, Is surely losing money for his careless owner.
It docs not Injure a well n-irtured
mature sow to give birth to two
litters of pigs each year.

Eome Points W-urtliy of nemtimbranee In
! Clioeilnf One.
i Whon buying an ax handle always
eelect one that is made entirely
from tho sap wood or tho heart
wood, but never one that Is mnde
partly of cai'h, for it will
&f*lit along the lino tit union.
Handles made from sap wood are
more elastic and better for (.hupping Mid a man will not tire or
got sore so quickly when using
one. I prefer those mado from tho
heart wood for splitting, although
thoy are not bo durable, soys a
writer In Orange Judd Farmer, Tbe
proper length and curve ot tho handle depends, upon the habit und
method of chopping of tho user. With
a long handle a man will strike a
mtuh harder blow, but with a short
handle he wlll strike of tenor, so
there Is practically no difference . in
the work accomplished.
Tho curves' too, depends upon the
habit of the user. A curved handle has no advantage over the ono
lhat is perfectly straight. Mcst
people prefer the curved, because
they are accustomed to its use.
An a rule the straight handle is
more endurable. The size of the
handle depends upon the muscular development of the user. If
it is too small It wlll cramp tho
fingers, and if too largo it will
lame the hands and wrists.
If one will exam'nc the end of
a piece of wood ho will seo that it
Is mado of layers, each layer representing the growth of one year.
Wood splits much more easily
along these lines than across them,
hence when selecting an ax handle,
always choose one in which the
layers are parallel with the line of
force, as shown In Fig. 1. If they
are at right angles, as in Fig. 2, a
few days' use will cause tho handle
to split along the dotted lines
shown. The. diflereme in quality
in this respect Is so marked thnt
many    dealers    sort    tbeir   handles
and make   tho   price   of one about
double    that of the other.
In bunging an ax considerable attention should be paid to tho
kind of work which is lo be done.
For small wood hang an
ax pointing in, as shown in Fig.
3, For very large trees hung it
squarely across, or at right
angles to the handle, and for split*
ting, especially block wood, hang
it out according to Fig. 5. This
gives one a chance to siriko a
heavy blow, squarely across tbo
block, using tho wholo bit of
the ax, and vlthaut making a tire-
so.na bcim of the back with eveiy
blow. The relative position of
the blade and handle mny be changed by insetting a small wedgo in
thu eyo of tho ax, either above or
below the handlo as occasion may
Mannr« for tlie Turnip Cm*.,
The ingredient the turnip has most
difficulty in obtaining is phosphoric acid, and where this crop gets a
fair dressing of dunj four hundredweight of 25 per cent, super, hoe-
phate per acre Is generally all that
Is required. On still, heavy land
ona half cwt. nitrate of soda should
also be applied with dung to glvo the
turnips a start, and another halt
cwt. or so when tho plants nre thinned. On all classes of soil where an
attack of "fly" is feared, one halt
cwt. of nitrate of soda should also,
be applied along with the dung to
force tho young plants Into tho rough
When turnips are grown without
dung, tho following mixture should
suit most soils: 4 cwt. 25 per cent,
superphosphate, 2 cwt. bene flour or
flue bono meal, 8 cwt. kalnit, i cwt.
nitrate of soda, J cwt. sulphate ol
ammonia, The sulphate of ammonia
may be loft out, and an equal quantity of nitrate of soda applied (1)
after this turnips are thinned.
Menl Rations for Fattening Steers.
A light ration of menl was found
to give (ho most profitable results in
fattm ng steers In a series of experiments extending over several years
at tho O.A.l*. Tho steers wero started on about one-third pound of com
meal per day per 100 pounds of live
weight, and this quantity ••was Increased as doomed advisablo to slightly over ono-halt pound per day. Tho
average daily gain was 1.601 pounds
at a cost of 0.58c per pound. Tho
steers, which wero fed on a medium
ration of two-thirds pound per day
per 100 pounds of live weight, made
a gain of 1.70 pounds at a cost of
6.09c por pound of guin. Another
lot fed at the rate ot one pound of
meal per dny por 100 pounds live
weight, gained 1.75 pounds dally at
a cost of 7.25c por pound of gain.
Tho meal was valued at Si3 por ton,
tho hay 50 and tho roots $2.
Karljr t.orlt lu ihe Kt-ttary.
As soon tn spring as tho weather
permits the bottom boards of tho
hives should bo scraped and cleaned
of the cnppinps and filth which havo
accumulated during winter, it tha
bottom boards nro detachable, and t
always prefer to have them so, the
Work Is easily performed.
After being cleaned stand thorn In
tho sun for a few minutes to dry. It
wlll make a wonderful difference to
the bees, save tbem lots of time and
Work nnd perhaps prevent disease.
The boes wlll build up much faster
