As   Open    Shed    Wliicli    Ha������    Proved  SnccesHfnl For Yearn.  ��������� The lllustrat on shows a wind break  that has been in use for some 10 or IS  years, writes 'C- P. Reynolds in Tht*  American Agriculturist. For actual  money invested I believe it is one of  tbe cheapest and most practical buildings that we have. Several years ago  we disposed of an old log house. Finding the roof in very good condition, it  ���������was determined to use what was necessary; of the roofing and sufficient .lumber from the ceiling to make a wind  break. The open shed shown in the  illustration is the result as it appears  today after nearly a ��������� score years of  practical service. The building is 48  feet long and some 10 feet deep.   The  ������������������ _iig-_*."ifc**  Slioen   For   Hornet*.  *' The wear and tear on horseflesh  makes quite an item on the farm, and  anything that will reduce this friction  for the fanner should be welcomed  writes C. T. White -in . The Prah-K  Farmer. It has been proved hi'voii-:  dispute that the average horse is shod  with too heavy shoos, and if lighloi  ones wore substituted the nuinial could  do' more work with let's wen rmess  Heavy shoes havo no particular :idva:i-  - tngo except for large truck horses on  stone   roads,   where   shoes   wear   out  ' quickly. Even iu such cases it is doubt  ful if too heavy shoos prove of any  value. Certainly for farm horses light  shoes are much more satisfactory. .Tin-  effects of such a change are quite no  tic-cable shortly after they are put on.  and in a year's time the extra amount  of work that is obtained from a horse  will more than pay for the sltorter  time that light shoes may wear. The  main object of the shoe Is to protect  the hoof, and the lighter it can be made  and serve its purpose the better it is  for tho horse. A good part of the year  horses on the farm would be better off  without shoes, and they can do plowing and similar work In soft fields  without in any way injuring the feet.  In winter, when the ground Is frozen.  it is quite, different, and shoes seem  necessary at these times. A horse  weighing 1,100 pounds should generally  be shod   with   shoes   not   weighing  i more than 12 to 15 ounces each.    If -1  ��������� ounces are added to each shoe, the "total difference in the animal's shoes is  10 ounces. In plowing, cultivating,  mowing and reaping a farm horse will  walk from 10 to 20 miles a day. If It  takes about four feet each step, the  horse will lift half a pouud extra ou  its two feet, or (500 pounds, iu every  mile. If we make the average day's  work 15 miles, the horse will lift 0.000  pounds extra a day. or nearly live tons.  The energy required to lift this nmount  Is wasted and serves no useful purpose. If It could be expended in doing  extra work, that would pay, it would  nearly pay the animal's keep. Leg  weary horses are common on the farm,  and leg weary horses are apt to break  down Id time and have crooked and  ailing limbs. It is not only a matter of  humanity, but one of profit, to lighten  the horse's burden all we can, and this  Is one good way.  Farm Cattle.  It is not true that the cattle business  to be profitable must be.conducted on  the broad ranges of the western plains,  says Texas Farm and Ranch. That is  one profitable system of cattle raisiug,  but there is another which yields fully  as great profits for the capital Invested.  Raising cattle on tbe farm has in all  countries and all ages been found profitable, and moie so now than ever.  By  WIND BREAK. (  posts at the rear are about 7 feet  high'- and nearly 10 in front. Plates  were laid over the tops of both 'sets of  posts, and the roof, which was put on'  in,four sections., was placed on-top of  these and spiked. The rear, was sided  tip; .also the ends. It makes a most  decided difference in the warmth of the  yard during rainy and windy weather.  "in summer I have known "the cattle  to .come all the way from the back of  ;/the pasture  In  order  to  stand   in   its  shade.

',     -      -  I   could   never   conceive   how, men  of  seeming   intelligence   conkl r deliberately  ss'it clown and write ghost stories merely  as a literary diversion and for the sake  of harrowing the feelings of the reader.   <  A  ghost story,  no matter how entertaining* it may be, if a pnre fabrication,  has no .business in print, for the world is  full of people so credulous in disposition  that the most 'absurd things', if told with  a serious air, are apt to be accepted as  '   the truth, and the grossest errors, foisted  upon,.the public by careless invention, become 'perpetuated as established facts.  'I   make   these   observations   that   the  render may become acquainted  with my  views upon subjects supernatural at the  beginning of the'narrative.  I  do not relate tho facts which I am  '" about to embody in this recital with the  idea  of explaining  them,  but give them  to  the  world, as  they   appeared   to  me,  -  leaving the scientist to furnish whatever  solution to the mystery maj  best fit'his  own point of view1 or methods'of investigation. " '  > The time was winter and the scene of  , the manifestation a lonely moor lying be-  ^ ' tween the city of Carson, which is tho  capital  of Nevada,  and the small  farm  where for some'years past I have raised  "     hay, cattle and a small family.  A political function .had  kept me out  ������*���������   rather late, and I was driving home after  midnight.      i  - The  night was clear and starlit,' with  snow on  the  ground  and  the air somewhat-hipping in its disposition.-  When  about  half  way   home,   having  v    'still two* miles to go, P gradually became  ���������' aware that something had happened  to  'my buggy, for it seemed to run with less  noise than',usual.    In Nevada the wheels  of  vehicles  shrink   from  the dryness  of  the atmosphere,  coupled (with the indifference" of'their owners, and mine were  ' no exception to the rule.    There was al-  ways more or less space between the tire  ���������    'and the felloe, and the wags of the city  had a way of saying that my approach  .  to" town was always heralded by an infernal clatter which betokens a careles-s  man with all his buggy wheels out of repair.  ���������It seemed to me suddenly that something like 25 per cent 'of the usual clatter  ' of the vehicle had ceased, and I was at a  loss to understand why. - The feeling  came over me so strongly that something  unusual had tianspired that I hesitated  to ascertain the cau<*e. An ill defined  feeling of dread was upon me, and, 1  blush to confess it. \ really feared to  look around. Finally, by 'a strong effort,  .1 summoned my courage and, glancini*;  back, was astonished to discover that the  off hind wheel of my buggy had disappeared.  What was more, tho vehicle did not  eeem to mind it, but ran as level as ever.  The cessation of thc clatter which that  wheel always produced was now explained, but the continued level running of the  buggy was not. An awful, creepy'feeling now came, over me that almost  amounted to a pain, and in the midst of  my wonderment the noise of another  wheel stopped, and I knew^that it had  followed its predecessor. The two hind  wheels were gone. I deliberately turned  about and investigated. Here 1 was running along on an oven keel, nautically  speaking, with nothing but my two front  wheels to go on.  As I was considering the probability of  the others going I noticed a dim. hazy  thing hanging to the hub of my off front  wheel. I speak in a horsy sense, after  thc manner of followers of the turf, for  in reality the wheel was still on. The  outlines of the thing alluded to gradually  became more distinct and resolved ttself  into the Ggure of a human being, aud as  sure as I was alive it was trying to take  off the nut of the axle. More fully to illustrate the impudence of the shadowy  individual in question I will further state  that my nut wrench was missing, and he  had evidently- taken it to remove the  wheels of my own; buggy.  I watched him now with more interest  than fear,-for it occurred to me that after  two wheels were gone it did not matter  much about the other, and I determined  to see the incident to the end.  In less tinie than. 1 have taken to tell it  this ghostly thing actually removed the  nut before my eyes, and then, throwing  its weight, on the wheel���������if I may be allowed to make use of the word weight in  such a connection���������the wheel arid the  ghost, rolled over together in tbe sagebrush. In spite of the weirdness of the'  situation, I was obliged to give vent to a  little chuckle, the first intimation 1 had  given the ghost of a knowledge of his  presence.  The familiarity which I had indulged in  with the strange little fellow seemed to  enrage him. for he immediately became  more in evidence, and. slipping around on  the near side of the buggy���������speaking  again in a horsy sense���������he fell to work  rapidly at the wheel, and. circumvent in;:  the mechanical difficulties of tbe nut with  very little trouble, he had the wheel spinning out into the sagebrush in short order.  Seeing that the buggy, however, did not  sink to the ground,  as  ��������� *���������      r������ 1 o ! r\ 1  j*   would  have had the right To do under the, circumstances. I gathered more courage and  cried out jocosely, "If you don't happen  to see what you want, ask for it.",  As I had half expected, the ghost made  a dive for the remaining wheel and fell to  work upon the nut. I was glad to see  that it did not come off easily. It was  never a very good fit for the thread of the  axle, and I recalled many a time when ini  a i hurry how I was really compelled to  indulge in unbecoming language before it  couldrbo started.  I looked for the ebost to indulge in a  little flow of expletives, but- it patiently  continued its work until it succeeded and  then triumphantly* flung the wheel :i<*iik'  and left me riding along in a buggy that  seemed held up in the air with no wheels  running under it.  To a person who has never ridden in a  vehicle under those peculiar circumstances  I can truthfully say that it is a rare treat.  There was no noise except ,the footfall  of the horse. Thc entire absence of inr  was something particularly pleasant. According to my way of thinking, it was an  ideal method of locomotion.  Strange as it may seem, I no longer had  any fear of the'fitting thing of the air  that hovered alongside the- horse, and I  decided once more fb break the ice of conversation and called out, "A pleasant  evening, stranger."  At this ho turned and, floating up ,to  my side, brought his face so' close to mine  that I ielt his breath.       ^       ,        '  ' *  It came to me like a'blast from'the  Klondike and'seemed to freeze me to the  bone. ' I regretted that I had spoken, for  he sent his' icy exhalation thrice into my  face, and each time it seemed colder., I  tried 'to detect^ the charneh house smell  mat always goes with a ghost, but feel  bound to 'say that peculiar odor was absent. I will, however, Estate for the'benefit of the reader that I was suffering from  a-bad cold, which to some extent.may ac-  connt'for my, inability to detect it.  I mention,,these seemingly trivial cir-H  cumstances 'that people who are disposed  to cast discredit upon, my narrative may  be silenced in advance. If propose fully  to forestall any ,orie,j who rises" up and  charges me with fictitious invention.  While- considering the proposition of offering the,ghost a chance to work for'mo  in the summer months and live in the cellar, whereThe could coobthe milk-during  the sweltering periods, I noticed a queer  thing about the horse!    The animal that  a  moment  before was  trotting  leisurely  alongdiad suddenly disappeared.  His harness was, attached to tho shafts, and t_������  bridle stuck out in front as if there was  .'a horse's head inside of it, wliile the rest  of it was bulged  up to conform to the  figure of'the animaJ that had so lately occupied it.  but the faithful beast,  which  Iiad-never before deserted me in an emer-  ���������'geney, was nowhere to be seen.    His absence, however.^was not material, for th'e  vehicle went along as easily' and as rapidly as ever and, _ it struck  me,  since the  horse was gone, a trifle smoother.  i   While   I   was ���������< -wondering 'what  would  happen nextjt happened before I knew it.  I suddenly found myself on the other side  of the big gate that bars the road about  a quarter of a mile from my house.    The  gtre   is  always   kept  shut,   and   it   is   a  groat bother to open it, but on this occa-  , "ion, just as I wa������s���������about to halt to unfasten  it,   I   found   that   I   was  already  th'-ousrh.    The fact of being on the other  "-ido of a gate was something 'altogether  novel to me, and no one who has not had  thc actual experience can possibly get any  real  idea  of the extraordinary sensation  of   being   on  the   other   side   of   a   gate  when you are'quite well assured in your  own mind that you never got there.    My  hold on the English language.' while it is  generally sufficient to enable me to convey  ordinary -meanings, is quite inadequate to  the task 'of demonstrating to the reader  the real 'situation, partly because of the  total unexpectedness of it and partly because the other side of the gate at once  became no longer the other side, but this  side, so to speak, and the side I seemed to  have   vacated   immediately   became   the  other side,   and  I  became  sor completely  mystified that I was unable, and still retain that inability, to toll  which side of  the gate I  was on. whether this side or  the other side or both sides.  Rather.than involve myself in a maze  of complications or contradictions I will  consider the gate incident closed and pass  on to the other extraordinary things that  happened between the gate and the house.  Before 'proceeding a hundred yards I  became awareof the circumstance that the  various parts of the harness were melting  away. The collar and hames dissolved  into nothingness, the bridle was whisked  into space, the tugs followed suit and ths  traces did not even leave their own name  behind. Yet in spite of this the vehicle  moved right along as before and turned  up tbe winding path toward the stable as  well as if everything was in its normal  condition and my own hand guiding the  lines.  When it came to a halt under the shed,  I got out and  went to bod  quietly, not  mentioning^ the events of the night to my  spouse, as, I did not care to harrow her  -feelings with such uncanny subjects.  ���������' In   the   morning,   however.'-, while   the  matter was still fresh in my memory, I  told   her everything . that had  happened'  and expressed my determination to write  a fullaccount of the same and forward it  over my signature,to some scientific journal, that these strange happenings might  not be lost to the world.    Her only reply  was  to  inquire- the,'time  of  my  arrival  home and my retirement'to bed.    I definitely fixed the hour at 1 o'clock, which  she disputed at once, and I dropped the  .subject, not caring tar unprofitable controversy with a woman.    I knew in my  own   mind,   however,   the   absolute   correctness of my  statement regarding the  hour, as I distinctly  remembered having  heard the clock strike 1 no less than four  times in succession.    So satisfied was I  that such  a  plain mathematical  demonstration would be lost upon her, being but  n  woman,  as I  have before remarked,  I  did not mention it.  Later on she called my attention to the  fact that the harness which I had described as having vanished into the night  was in reality piled at the foot of the bed  and that my clothes were hanging on a  pes in the srable. Thi<5 was indeed'to my  mind a strone corroboration of my story,  but she did not so rogard it and was un-  kiiK^ enough to suggest that when I pent  my account to a scientific journal I should  mention also that I-had attended a banquet the evening before, given in honor of  the election of a United States senator  from Nevada; where more than 50, cases  of champagne had been consumed prior  to the time that I had been called upon to  respond to' a toast. I mention this circumstance as requested, although the connection between it and my strange experience on the lonely, moor is not apparent  to me. '       * , .     -v  In revising my manuscript I notice that  it mentions the removal by the ghost of  five separate, wheels' from the buggy,  which may be regarded by some as an inaccuracy. A gentleman for'whose opinions I have always entertained the highest regard has suggested to me that, for  the sake of lending greater plausibility to  my.narrative, I omit all mention of the  appearance���������or,,more properly speaking,  the disappearance���������of tho fifth wheel. *_  must decline, however, to do this.

Th������ Surprising Phenomenon That Follow  Digging in Trinidad's Asphalt *LuKe.  Few 'people who "travel over asphalted streets arc aware of the origin of th'e' black, pitchy, mass that  goes to make up the-basis of the  smooth , Voadway, under.Vitheir .feet.  Two thousand , miles almost! due  south from' Halifax '/ lies" the ' .little  tropical" ,islancl,' of Trinidad���������a ' British poss"ession. off the' coast-^of northern South* America. At tlie southwestern, extremity of this ..colony 'the  famous'Pitch Lake is-,located 'on the  summit,, of a-small hill.,' less .'than* two  hundred'feet above'the*level" '.of .the  sea. In appearance there is, nothing  phenomenal'about this wonder of the  tropics but a visit to the lake as it  ' is familiarly called, reveals one > of  /the 'most unaccountable oddities -of  nature in the annals  of trayel.  The  tourist may  take passage    to  the /'land   of   the humming-bird"���������as  Trinidad  people like their  country;'to  be called ���������*   and after securing   'accommodation at1 the only decent ho-  'tel m.Jhe colony, proceed to'the lake  by  one     of thc     small'    Government  steamers' " plying ~, coastwise ������   three  times ** weekly;*' 'disembark    at     the  . Brighton - pier, ���������-  and    proceed to the  scene of-"digging."   Of all the" crude,  rough-and-ready means-of extracting  wealth from mother earth,  the Trinidad Lake asphalt'operations are the  most-striking.   Thc visitor arrives on  a  fairly��������� level 'plateau, .spotted  ^here  and  there  with  tiny  pools "of  water,  beneath    which    the soft shhry >,.substance known  as  asphalt glitters     in  the reflection of a fierce tropical sun,  * Scattered over thc surface of tho lake  dozens 'of   swarthy   negroes   are  plying pick and hoe,' extracting the tar-  coaly  looking  stuff  from  the   < earth.  'One may sit in the shade ox a   nearby  shrub,     or   under     the* protecting  shelter    of an     umbrella,  and  watch  the negroes pile heap  after heap    of  the asphalt into  thc endless  chain of  tubs  that  hurry  along to  the     pier,  from    which    one   has    but recently  landed,  until  a     yawning-excavation  of   twenty  or more feet suggests    to  the supervising, darky that the time  has come to move a bit further    on.  In  the course of a few-hoars  the excavation   resulting      from   the   morning's   diggings     begins  to[>look     less  deep, and by ever tide the spot    from  which    more    than    five or ten tons  have been  dug     is  again level'   with  the surrounding earth and. ready    to  be  dug  over     by  the gang  of     noisy  blacks.      From   the  point  of  digging  to the pier is 'but a mile or less    of  endless-chain  descent,   moored   to the  pier     are     big     sailing vessels,     and  sometimes  steamers,  into  whose    capacious holds  the tubo discharge thc  pitch at the rate of two or three hundred tons per day.  The Tori;are of a T'lax Shirt.     f,  The' most trying ordeal that Bi.oker  T. Washington was forced to endure as  a slave boy was the wearing of,.������������������flax  shirt. In his autobiography, "'Up From  Slavery," he says: ,  ' "In the portion-of Virginia where I  , lived it was common to use flax as part  of the clothing for slaves. That part  of the flax'1 from -which' our clothing  was' made was "largely' the refuse,  which of course was the-cheapest-and.  roughest part. I, can scarcely imagine  any, torture except .perhaps the pulling  of a tooth that is. equal to that caused  by pulling on a new flax shirt for the  first time. It is almost equal to the  feeling that one would experience if he  had a dozen or more chestnut burs or a  hundred small pin points in contact  with the flesh. Even to .this day I can  recall accurately the torljares that I underwent when pulling on one of these  garments. 'The fact that my flesh was  soft and tender added to'the pain. But  I had no choice. I had to wear the flax  shirt or none, and had it been left to  me to choose I should have chosen to  wear no covering.  "In connection'with the flax shirt my  brother John, who'is several years older' than I am, performed one of the  most generous acts that I ever heard of  one slave relative doing for another.  On several occasions when I was being  forced to wear a new flax shirt ho gen-'  erously agreed to put it on in my stead  and wear it for several days till it was  'broken in.'; Until I had grown to be  quite a youth this single garments was  all that I wore."   >'!

Some said  that tbe sound was-vocal; and others  declared that the grouse'struck the log  with its wings. ' Evem today the precise cause of the sound is not known,  for, although the bird has-been closely  watched,  its  wing movements are so,,  rapid 'that it is next to impossible "to  tell  exactly  what takes  place.1    This  much, however, is known: During'the/  performance  the  grouse  stands  upon'  the leg'or other perch and strikes the.'  air in front of his body somewhat after *  the manner of an elated barnyard cock.

The shark of sharks, the real "man  eater" and the one most dreaded, is  the white shark. This variety reaches  a length of 35 feet and a weight of  2.000 pounds. Its head^ is long and  flat, and the shout far overhangs the  mouth Its six rows of teeth are sharp  as lane ets jind notched like saws. Its  mouth is very large, so that one has  been known to cut a man's body completely in two at a single snap of its  cruel jaws and another to swallow one  at a gulp. Near Calcutta one of these  sharks was seen to swallow a.bullock's  head, horns and all.  From the stomach of another a bull's  hide was taken entire, and the sailor  who made the discovery insisted that  the1 bull iiad been swallowed whole  and all except the hide had been digested.- From the stomach of another  was taken a lady's workbox, filled with  the usual contents, scissors and all.

Canned salmon - we see at IS  pence a pound is no more expensive;  than cod at sixpence. Millions of people live on it, and the North American  settler who is not well provided with  cash finds it a good substitute and  change from flesh'meat at times.  Frogs' legs are not'of high, nutritive  value, which need not. surprise us.  Turtle soup from the chemist's..point  of view, is not worth a tenth of the  price paid for it.���������Exchange.

We are up against it again.     An  '   irate milkman last week paid  his  sub. and quit, because he  said, we  had said he watered his milk. This  i ���������  is not true, we did not say so, and  what is more we do not earewheth-  er he does or' not. We remember  that, in   reporting   a   police   case  r *      - f -  some time back/we said that one of  the panies'had'begun to .explain  how much water  a certain   milk-  t F *  man used, but had been stopped by  thejudg-3. Now that the affair has  been thrust down our teeth thus  unceremoniously, we will Bay just  what was said oh that occasion.  ''Mr McKelvey then staled that customers had complained of the milk-  ' taan in-question���������we still withhold  the name��������� being so mean, that he  watered his milk, -and they had  threatened to quit him." We do>  not care one pin for aforesaid milk-  man's dropping , his   subscription,  ' but when he does so and howls;  about tHe paper talking about him,  then1 the public should be > allowed  to read what.was said,^hd to judge  of the utter smallnesVof the person  ,who would seek' to t injure those  who don't bother their'heads ,about  him in the least. If any injury  has been done, why not go after  they who have done it?/' Tne opportunity is such a golden one.  A Weary Willy was given three  months forD. & D. Saturday.  The Voice as a Revealer of Character.  t There is no greater revealer of  character than the human voice.  It-is the first thing that strikes us  in a stranger, or in a new acquaintance. If it has L that spontaneous  ring of truth that no training can  impart we recognize its appeal for  confidence. Some voices have the  jar of falsehood, and are as full of  warning as the hiss of a serpent.  The unconscious natural voice is  to be regardt d as , the ' index of  character. To speak promptly and  positively is generally to act  promptly and positively; to speak  politely is to act politely, and to  speak gruffly and rudely is a good  way to make rude action easy.���������  Amelia E.
