I rpmemlipr feeling Uncle Eb's hnnd  upon my chick und how I ruse aud  stared about mo in the fading shadows  of a dream as he shook me gently.  "Wake up, my boy," said he. "Come,  we mus' put for home."  The tiro was out. The old man held  a lantern as he stood before mo, the  blaze flickering. There was a fearsome darkness all around.  "Come, Willie, make haste," he whispered as I rubbed my eyes. "Put on  yer boots, au' here's yer little coat au'  muffler."  There was a mighty roar in tlie forest aud icy puffs of snow came whistling in upon us. We stored the robes  and pails aud buckets and covered the  big kettle.  The lofty tree tops reeled and creaked  above us, and a deep, sonorous moan  was sweeping through the woods as  If the fingers of the wind had touched  a mighty harp string in the timber.  We could hear the crash and thunder  of falling trees.  "Make haste! Make haste! It's resky  here," said Uncle Eb, and he held my  hand and ran. We started through the  brush and steered as straight as we  could for the clearing. The little box  of light he carried was soon sheathed  in snow, and I remember how he  stopped, half out of breath, often aud  brushed it with his mittens to let out  the light. We had made the scattering growth of little timber at the edge  of the woods when the globe of the  lantern snapped aud fell. "A moment  later we stood iu utter darkness. I  knew for the first'time then that we  were in a bad fix.  "I guess God '11 take care of us, Willie," said Uncle Eb. "If he don't we'll  never get there in this world���������never!"  It was a black aud icy Wall of night  and storm on every side of us. I never  -saw���������a���������time���������wheu_the_light_of_TG.od-lsJ  heaven was so utterly extinguished;  the cold never went to my bone as on  that bitter night. My hands aud feet  were numb witb aching as the roar of  the trees grew fainter in the open. I  remember how I lagged and how the  old man urged me on and how wo toiled  in the wind nnd darkness, straining  our eyes for some familiar thing. Of  a sudden we stumbled upon a wall that  wo hnd passed au hour or so before.  "Oh!" he groaned, and made thnt  funny, deprecating cluck with his  tongue that I have heard so much from  Yankee lips.  "God o' moroy," said he, "we've gone  round in a half circle! Now we'll take  the wall tin' mebbe it'll bring us home."  I thought I couldn't keep my foot any  longer, for nn irresistible drowsiness  hnd como over me. The voice of Uncle  Eb seemed far nwny, nnd when I sank  in the snow nnd shut my oyes to sleep  ho shook mo as n terrier shakes a rat.  "Wake up, my boy," said ho; "yo  mustn't sleep,"  Then he boxed my enrs until I cried  nnd picked me up nnd ran with me  along the side of tho wall, I wns but  dimly conscious whon ho dropped me  under a tree whose hare twigs lushed  the air nnd stung my cheeks. I heard  hhn tearing the branches savagely nud  nitittoi'liy,', "Thanks to God, it's the  blue beech." 1 shall never forget; how  ho turned nnd held to iny hand and  put the whip on ino ns I lay In the  snow, ami how the sting of It started  my blood. I'i* I sprang In a Jil'l'y and  howled nnd danced. The slouf rod bout  nnd (.'Irch'ii on me like a hoop of (ire.

"I'll never fergit," said he presently,  "if I live a thousan' years the lickin' I ���������  gin thet boy.   But it hurt me worse'a  it hurt him."  Then he told the story of the blue  beech.  The next day was that "cold Friday"  long remembered by those who felt Ita  deadly chill, a day wheu water thrown  in the magic air came down in clinking  crystals and sheaths of frost lay thick  upon tho wiudows. But that and the  one before it were among the few days  in that early period that lie like a rock  under- my character.  PLANNING A NEW HOME  G  CHAPTER VIII.  RANDMA BISNETTE came  from Canada to work for the  Browers. She was a big,  cheerful woman with a dialect, an amiable disposition and a  swarthy, wrinkled face. She had a  loose front tooth that occupied all the  leisure of her tongue. When she sat at  her kuittiug this big tooth clicked incessantly. On every stitch her tongue  went in nud out a,nd across it, nnd I,  standing often by ber knees, regarded  the process with great curiosity.  The reader may gather much from  these frank and informing words of  Grandma Bisnette: "When I los' my  man, mon Dieu! I have two son. An':  when I come across I bring him with  me. Abe he rough, but den he no bad  man."  Abe was the butcher of the neighborhood, that red handed, stony hearted  necessary man whom the Yankee farmer in that north country hires to do, the  cruel things that have to be done. He  wore ragged, dirty clothes and had a  voice like a steam whistle. His rough  black hair fell low aud mingled with  bis scanty heard. His hands were  stained too often with the blood of  some creature we loved. I always crept  under the bed in Mrs. Brower's room  when Abe came, he was such a terror  to mo, with his bloody work and noisy  oaths. Such men were the curse of  the cleanly homes iu that country.  There was much to shock the ears and  eyes of children iu the life of the farm.  It was a fashion among the help to decorate their speech with profanity for  the mere sound of it, and the foul  mouthings of low minded men spread  like a pestilence in the fields.  Abe came^-always with an old bay  "Iforse and~a^icl^fy~bucI������l5SaMr~Hrs~  oue foot on the dash as he rode gave  the picture a daredevil finish. The  lash of his bull whip sang around him,  and his great voice sent its blasts of  noise ahead. When we heard a fearful  yell and rumble in the distance we  knew Abe was coming.  "Abe he come," said Grandma Bisnette. "Mou Dieu, he make de leetle  rock fly!"  It wns like, the coming of a locomotive with roar of wheel nnd whistle.  In my childhood as soon as I saw the  cloud of dust I put i'or the bed and  from its friendly cover would peek out  often, but never venture far until the  man of blood had gone,  To us children he wns n mnrvel of  wickedness. There were those who  told how he hnd stood In the storm one  night and dared the Almighty to send  the lightning upon him.  Tho dog Fred had grown so old nnd  inllrm that one day they sout for Abo  to come and put an end to his misery.  Every man on tho farm loved tho old  dog, and not Ono of them would raiso  n hnnd to kill him. Hope nnd I heard  whnt Abe wns coming to do, nnd when  the men hnd gono to tho fields that  summer morning wo lifted Fred into  the littlo wagon In which ho had once  drawn me nnd, starting buck to the  burn, stole nwny with hhn through the  deep grass of the meudow until wo  came out upon tho highroad far bolow.

Details That Reduce the Friction of  Household Machinery.  Have an elevator in the back part of  the house large enough to carry a  trunk. You may be saved the irritation  of having a piece taken out of your  new wall and the banister scratched  and broken by a careless baggageman  in his efforts to carry a trunk downstairs. Run by an arrangement of  ropes and pulleys, it need not be an  expensive affair.  Have aU "upstairs back porch"  where bedding can be aired. Much  back breaking work carrying blankets  and pillows up and down stairs will be  saved.

Orange Judd   Farmer   Conducts   fXn  Investigation���������The Results,  A few years ago, only the well-to-  do or rich farmer could afford farm  scales. On these he weighed the grain  or hay or other farm produce sent to  market and all of his farm stock before it was turned over to the shipper.  Scales were then > rather expensive,  and the average farmer could not afford to put up one. As time passed, it  becaifte more and more evident that  the farmer should know exactly how  much produce and stock were raised.  Land increased in price, and it was  absolutely essential that the best and  most economical methods be employed  to make the farm pay a reasonable  rate or iuterest on its high valuation.  So it has come about that tho farm  scale is becoming more and more popular and more and more of them are  put in each year. The cost is now  reasonable and most users claim that  they more than pay for themselves in  one year. Particularly true is this  Where a large amount of grain is sent  to market, or where much stock is  sold. While most elevator men and  stock buyers are honest, they frequently make mistakes, and it is very  satisfactarly to be able to check up  each sale.  On rented farms the division of  crops is more or less guess work. If  corn is divided in- the row, there is  liability of serious error; if divided  by the wagon load, there is great danger of mistakes. It is almost impossible to divide hay satisfactorily unless rj  it is weighed. The same is largely  true of every other crop on the rented  farm. If the farm owner will put in  a farm scale, he will find that he gets  along better with his tenants, as both  are then satisfied. The returns from  his farm will be better each year.  The progressive farmer wants to  know which variety of corn yields  best, which method of rotation produces the biggest crop. This he cannot do unless he knows exactly what  his fields yield each year. Then he  wants to know which method of rotation is most satisfactory. Knowledge  of this kind is impossible unless he  has scales with which to carefully  weigh produce each year. If the stockman is successful, he must know how  much increase a certain amount and  kind of feed will produce. If the results with one kind are not satisfactory, he must change the feed and  note the result. With scales on the  farm, this is not difficult, but it is  about impossible without them. At any  rate, it is guesswork, pure and simple. .  ���������^Recently-Orange���������Judd-Farmer-con-���������  ducted an inquiry among farmers who  are using scales, asking for specific  information concerning them and  opinions as to the value of tne scales  on any farm. A great many replies  were received, and, without exception,  the owners of scales were highly  pleased.  Most of them stated that they  would not be without the farm scales  under any circumstances, and many of  them asserted that the scales more  than paid for themselves the first year.  As a rule, the farmers owning scales,  seldom charge their neighbors anything for weighing produce. If carefully used there is practically no deterioration, because of "loaning" them  to neighbors. The present day farm  scale is well made and will last from ,  40 to 50 years.  The average four to six-ton seal������  costs, including tho setting up, $75  to $125. Considering the length of time  they can ho used, this is very snmll,  and is hardly to bo considered on any  farm of 320 acres or ovor.  Favored By British Markets.

Lord Kinnaird, who has just been  elected president of the International  Council of the Young Men's Christian  Association In succession to the late  Sir George Williams, is one of the many  banker peers of the upper chamber of  the British Legislature, being the prin-  cips.1 partner of the old -established  London bank of Ransom, Bouverie &  Co., and a director of the banking  house of Barclay & Co., says the Marquise de Fontenoy.   He is an old Eton  . boy and a Trinity, Cambridge, man,  passionately fond of athletics. He captained the Eton football team as a lad,  and is one of the most regular attendants at all the great cricket matches.  His title is an old one, having been  created in 1682, and must not be confounded with that of Lord Kynnalrd,  ,_^hIch_lsjK>me_b^  heir of the Earl of Newburgh. Lord  Kinnaird's eldest son, like the other  first-born of Scotch peers, bears the  title tot the master. He ls a fine/tall  young fellow, whose disposition towards philanthropy and seriousness Is  tempered, as in the case of his father,  by his very pronounced taste for' everything athletic. Lord Kinnaird has a  fine old place in Perthshire, and a  stately town house in St. James'  Square, which for several seasons he  placed at the disposal of the late Mr.  Gladstone.  Our attention has recently been  called to a new machine which has  lately been designed in Winnipeg for  the purpose of treating all kinds of  seed grain. An outline cut of the machine is given herewith from which it  will be seen that it consists of a triangular tank about fourteen inches  wide and four feet long, open at the  top and supported on legs. This  tank contains the bluestone or formalin solution. From one end of the  tank a short elevator extends at an  angle of about 46 degrees, consisting  of two rubber belts witb wood flights  placed about two and a half inches  apart. A receiving hood is attached  to the lower side of the top of the  elevator and just underneath this  hood and extending down to the floor  also at an angle of about 45 degrees, is  placed a drain board. In operation  the upward movement of the top  side of the elevator belt causes an  upward current of the water from the  bottom of the tank and a backward  current on top. The grain falls  from the hopper above into this current and is deflected backward by  it as it sinks slowly to the bottom.  At the same time all, light and defective grain, smut-balls, wild oats  and other noxious weed seeds float  to the top when they are caught by  the backward water current and carried to the rear of the machine into  quiet water, from rwhich they may  be   readily removed.

In the cut the  ���������^rwaTlinW"indicate~thie~direction~of  the water current, large dots the  path of grain and small dots seeds-  The inventor of the machine argues that at the present time, when  all elevators and mills are equipped  with cleaning machinery, the fanner  has no use for the fanning mill other  than to clean his seed grain and  many of them decline to go to the  expense for a machine of so limited  use, and his aim has been to produce  a machine that would do the work  of the fanning mill and pickler in  one and the same operation, and at  the same time be supplied at a price  very much less than these two machines.  This he claims to have accomplished and it would appear that Mb  claims are well grounded. The machine certainy does excellent work,  and we understand that it is to be  placed on the market at a price less  than half the cost of the two  machines mentioned.  Arrangements have been made to  manufacture ber������ and a limited number will be on the market for the  coming spring trade. Purther particulars can be had by applying to  J. A.

L_ STAMME.RINU.  The Care That One Sufferer Invented  May Help Others.  Among the minor arts of great Importance is the self cure of stammering, which comes upon so many in  early youth. In the memoir of the  author of "Jolm Inglesant," which his  -widow prepared, we read a rather  touching confession. "I contracted the  habit of stammering," wrote Mr. Short-  house to Lady Welby, "as a delicate  little boy of three at a large day school.  It was not such a misfortune as might  be supposed. For without this thorn  In the flesh 'John Inglesant' would  never have been written or conceived,  and much which Is very dear to me In  philosophy would have been unknown." Few Btammerers can bring  forth a classic from their affliction,  and some would even refuse the author's fame at the price of the speaker's embarrassments.  In many cases the self cure of stammering is easy. The present writer  ���������was a sufferer when a boy at a day  school. He set himself to Invent tho  core. It was absolutely necessary, he  found, that the opening syllable ot a  sentence should be said several times  "before the sentence was under way  (just as tbe billiard player waggles his  cue before the correct stroke). It occurred that the stammering might be  done silently. So that little boy stammered firmly to himself with tightly  closed lips, Imagining himself to be  speaking. It was easy enough, when  tbe requisite number of "tut-tut-tuts"  or "gug-gug-gugs" had been achieved  la silence to start the sentence. Since  then he has never stammered���������aloud.���������  London Chronicle.  Bee* an Bur-flars.  It appears that the monarchies of  bees, well governed as they seem to be,  are afflicted nevertheless by organized  criminal classes���������sneak thieves and  highway robbers. Some of these robber  bees go in strong bands to pillage and  ore able to storm and sack a hive. Aft-  *r the slaughter they carryall the provisions home. Some colonics of bees  never work; they live entirely by robbery and murder.  There are also thieves who creep uu-  perceived into strange hives to steal  Aoa&y,._^IX^jacc������Ss������ul���������the-/���������r^turn a fter-  ���������vrartl with hordes of burglar bees,  break open the honey safes and carry.  away the contents.

Catarrh  Cured  Catarrh is offensive���������more  than that it is the forerunner of worse diseases.  Catarrh spreads from the  nose to the throat where it  sometimes prepares the sufferer for diphtheria; it  spreads to the stomach and  bowels where it generates  the worst kind of indigestion ; consumption, even,  has been known to be helped along by catarrh.  If your breath is bad,  you had better sweeten it  up by getting catarrh out  of your system. You should  take something that will kill  the disease germs, tone up  your general health and  particularly revitalize and  invigorate the mucous  membranes which catarrh  especially attacks.

Iron pots may be kept in good condition by being blackleaded on the out-  Bide.  To wash anything that is greasy use  hot soda water. The alkali turns the  grease into soap, which will do Its own  cleansing.  When you have a greasy kettle after  frying cakes or the like try cleaning  It with a cupful of cornmeal and see  how neatly It does the work.  An artist's palette knife or druggist's spatula Is a vast Improvement  on the vegetable or case knife in the  kitchen for innumerable purposes.  To clean zinc mix whiting witb ammonia into a smooth paste and apply it  to the zinc with a soft woolen cloth.  Let the whiting dry and then rub it off  with a piece of flannel.  Kitchen tins may be brightened by  boiling them in strong borax water.  Kinse in hot water and dry, and unless they have been very much neglected they will be silver bright.

The secret of health���������the secret  of life itself���������is good blood Therefore a medicine that makes new blood  and supplies the necessary material  for rapidly rebuilding wasted nerve  tissues, reaches the root of most of  the serious diseases- For this pur  nose there is no medicine can take  the place of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

You  can find evidence of the value of  these pills in every part of the country, among others Mr. D- W. Daley,  Crystal City, Man., says: "I have  used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills with  wonderful success. My blood wa  very poor, I was weak and nervous  suffered much from heart trouble  and was scarcely fit for work- I  used nine boxes of the pills, and the  result is I am again enjoying the best  of health. I do not think there Is  any medicine can equal Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, when the system  run down."  But you must get the genuine pills  with the full name, Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for Pale People, printed on  the wrapper around each box. Ask  your druggist for theso pills or get  thorn from the Dr. Williams Medicine  Co. at no cents a box, or six boxes  for $2.50.  Light Can-brio-- and Prints.

Never omit to wash your face before going to bed at night if you want  to keep your skin smooth and soft.  Use warm water to which a little milk  has been added and the best soap you  can afford. Cheap soap ruins the texture of the skin. Before washing smear  a little cold cream over the face, rubbing it lightly over. Wipe off with  clean, soft rag. You'll be surprised to  see the dirt that comes with it. After  washing and thoroughly rinsing bathe  well in another basin of warm water  and milk. Half a teacupful of milk  to half a gallon of water is the right  proportion. This bathing is to remove  any suspicion of soap. Dry thorough-  ly and then rub in a little cold cream  or other skin food and smooth out all  the tired lines and wrinkles. Then  carefully wipe off any that the skin  will not absorb.  Sunlight Soap is better than other  soaps, but is best when used in the  Sunlight  way.     Buy Sunlight Soap  nd follow directions.

There is no drug store which contains  a line of reds to match the white or  tan or brown or ellve of every skin.  The woman who persists in using rouge  should make her own preparation at  home. This Is not a difficult task.  First, turn your mirror so that It is  backing toward the light, or, better  still, so that the light falls upon you  from one side, as you sit facing tbe  mirror. Daylight Is the only light In  which a woman should make up. Have  beside you a small box of carmine, a  box of rouge de theatre, a box of prepared chalk and one of cream tinted  face powder; also a little oil of sweet  almonds and a few clean empty saucers. Try the rouge flrst. It may harmonize with your skin perfectly, but  there are nine chances In ten that It  will bo vory much off color. Scrape a  little of It up and darken by mixing  with a little carmlno or Jighton by  mixing with a little of tho white or tho  cream powdor as your judgment dictates. If you can got no good results,  discard tho rotigo and work with tho  carmine and powdor. When you havo  obtained a tint that blonds with your  skin mix in just a trifle of the oil of  sweet almonds to glvo tlio wholo adhesiveness. Remember your quantities  nnd always keep your formula.

Man WKo  Went Wron^  By C. B. LEWIS  Copyright, 1005, by P. C. Eastman t  There had been a gale in the gulf all  night loiig, and as daylight came and  the Cuban scouts looked out of the  thicket in which they had lain through  the night the white topped waves were  chasing each other ashore like so many  wild horses. They were there to meet  a blockade runner which was to have  landed a cargo for thorn the previous  night, but the gale had kept her away  from the coast.  "What is it?" was asked as one of  the group uttered a shout and pointed  out to sea.  "Boom!", came the report of a cannon as if in answer.  j. Three miles off the coast was a tiny  craft heading straight for the shore  under a bit ot sail, and not halt a mile  behind her was a Spanish gunboat  which had opened fire at the reeling,  dancing target Such was the tumble  of the waves that the larger craft  might bave fired all day long and only  planted a lucky shot by accident, and it  soon became apparent to the watchers  that if the little craft were handled  right she would at least reach the  breakers in safety. Then heaven help  the man who was sailing her. She  came on like a gull, sometimes hove up  until she seemed too launch herself  through the air and again sinking so  far out of sight and being hidden so  long that the watchers held their  breath and spoke no word.  "A-h-h-h!   Cheer!"  As the water began to shoal the gunboat slewed her head around and wallowed in the trough of the sea for a  moment, as if0 she would turn turtle,  and then got her keel under "herK ami  steamed out to sea. The scouts waved  their hats and cheered the man who  was holding the stem of the boat,  hardly more than a skiff, straight for  the beach at their feet. They ran and  pulled down a vine from a tree, formed in line with the outer man up to  ~Kis~Waist~in~the���������hoiling���������foamr^and-  ,when the craft struck the first breaker  and was hurled end over end the  stranger was caught by tlie collar of  his jacket and drawn out of the grip  of the deadly undertow.  "Well done and thanks for it," he  said five minutes later, when he hud  cleared his eyes and mouth of salt  .water.  "How came you afloat in that craft?"  asked the leader.  "I came from Key West to join you.  You are insurgents, I tako it? Take me  to headquarters."  "But you braved tho gale in that  craft?"  "I scudded before it nl! night."  "And you���������you huvo come to help us  fight?"  "Tako mo to headquarters," answorod tho man. And ho shut his jaws and  would talk no more.  A. mnn was detailed to conduct him  to insurgent headquarters. What the  stranger said to the general never  will bo known. Perhaps lie told all;  perhaps ho simply said that like many  another American freo lnnce ho had  como to help Cuba win her independence. Good men woro too scarce for  any caviling. In two days- tho stranger,' who had simply been dubbed  "yankco," was scouting. IIo was silent and taciturn and made no friends,  but when it was found that ho had  plenty of courage tho men rallied to  lilm and were led by lilm without  heartburnings or Jealousies. They wild  of lilm to ouch other wliun out of earshot :  "IIo Is educated. Ho Is a gentleman.  Ho has gono wrong somehow. Lot It  bo his secret, however."  Threo months after tlio landing, Con-  oral Woyler had bfforod a reward for  Yankee, dead or flilvo. IIo detailed  fifty scouts for uo othor purposo but to  look for him.  Day by day lie railed nt them for  their wnnt of success. Ono by one their  number dwindled away under the bullets of Yankee's little band of ton.  The Spanish tried bribery, but the Insurgents turned their backs on the  auras named. Thoy sot traps, but the  Cuban scouts scented them nnd refused  to walk in.

It wan  so strong that, although there were *������������  Spanish infantry on the ground, they  dared not rush it. They simply surrounded it and sent for cannon to batter down the walls.  (  The Cubans were trapped like rats.  They had neither food nor waiter, and  their cartridges were reduced to seven ;  per man.   It did not take the slowest j  witted man among them more than a i  quarter of an hoar to realize that the J  engine house was a death trap.   All instinctively gathered about the leader.  No one asked a question.   The posture  of each inan spoke for him.  "They are 400 to 10," ��������� said Yankee as j  be locked around him.   "We have seventy ballets, and we must kill seventy  of the enemy.   After that"-���������  "What?"  "We must die fighting with our machetes. We will make a rush for it  and die fighting."  "But if we could send word to Gomez?"  "He has 200 men with him," answered the leader, with a laugh, "if he  had a thousand, who of us is to penetrate the Spanish lines and notify him?  A bird could fly over them, but a fox  could not make his way through them.  No, my comrades, it is the end. We  have fought long and well, It only remains to die without shame. Whenever you see a target plant a bullet  into it. We must have seventy lives  for our ten. It will take them till noon  tomorrow to get a cannon here. Now  to work."  The Spanish maintained a hot musketry fire all the afternoon, but thehj  bullets were tbrdwn away. It was  more for moral effect than any hope  that the lead might reach any of the  defenders. On the contrary, the trapped men fired only when they had a  human target within range, and not a  bullet was wasted.  The night passed quietly. There was  no earthly show for the! Cubans to escape through that cordon, and men  were under arms all night to repulse a  sudden rush. When morning came the  fusillade recommenced, and at 11  o'clock the fieldpiecs arrived. There  had been no firing from, the Cubans  for the last half hour. Their last cartridge had been expended.  "This will be the way of it," said  Yankee as the men gathered around:  "We shall first be summoned to surrender. If any one or all of you want  to take advantage of that, well and  good. You will probably be shot with-  ~iu"half"an-hourrbut-there-is-a-barepos--  sibility that the Spanish may keep faith  with you.   Any one want to try it?"  There was a murmur of dissent from  every man.  "Very well. We will reject surrender. They will then open fire. Whether ^hey use solid shot or shell, they will  batter down these walls like paper.  Get the barricade at the door ready to  throw down when I give the word, and  then wo will give our old battle cry for  the last time and have at them. Your  firing was so good that I have scored  off seven for each man, but we can get  one more apiece iu the rush. We shall  go under, but wo have comrades who  will know how we died."  Under a flag of truce they were summoned to surrender, but tho ten answered with cheers of defiance. Then  tho cannon opened flro, and at the  third discharge tho barricade, was  thrown down, and thoro was a cheer  nnd n rush, Tho useless guns woro  left behind. It wns a rush, a moleo, a  mad whirl of fighters, and thon all was  over. Tho ten had got another man  apiece and more. Their comrades back  in tho thickets hoard the tnlo days after; wo road of it in tho papers after  weeks had gono by. All of us said  tho same. It was tho wny to die for  Cuba.  Whoro the woods grow rank and tho  hideous land crabs scamper about unchecked and unafraid thoro Is a grave  for nluo. Somo strnngo fragment of  sentiment caused tho Spanish com-  jiinnder to give the tenth mini u gravo  by himself. Had ho finished his work  by erecting a headboard ho might havo  writton theroon, "Horo llotli n man  who wont wrong, but in doath ho  atoned for it." But a week lator no  wolf could huvo found tlio spot.  CHELTER FOR SHEEP.  The Main Thing  Is to Guard Against  Exposure to Winter Rains.  Where sheep are sheltered within  buildings it is simply indispensable  that they shall be well ventilated while  the sheep are housed in them, says  Prof. Thomas Shaw in American Sheep  Breeder. This can.usually be accomplished readily where there are windows or doors on two sides of the  building. Except in extreme instances,  sufficient ventilation may be had by  opening some of the windows or even  doors on the lee side.  When sheep are confined to a yard  in winter, no attempt should be made  to house them in a close building at  night. The yard, should have a dog  proof fence. A fence made of boards  or by building a straw stack on Uie  exposed side will answer best, as the  winds are then shut off, which greatly aids in the well doing of the sheep.  Such a yard shut off from the winds  and facing the sun niaikes an ideal  place for sheep in winter when they  cannot get to the fields, but it must  be kept sufficiently bedded to be perfectly dry. When sheep have the  the choice of lying in such a yard or  in a covered shed they will usually  prefer the former.  In wintering sheep, they must be  sedulously safeguarded, first/ from  drafts and second from too warm  housing. The former are especially injurious to them. They come through  cracks in the weatherboarding or  through leaving windows or doors open  on the windward side of the shed.  When thus exposed, they contract  colds, and coughing and catarrh follow, which, of course, are against the  well doing of the sheep.  But housing in sheds that are too  warm is simply disastrous to the flock.  It induces sweating, owing to the  warm covering of the fleece; hence  when sheep are turned from such a  place into a. yard on a cold day they  quickly contract colds. Such treatment  will soon wreck any flock. Give sheep  the choice of choosing a place on which  to lie down on a windy day, and they  will prefer lying in the open, by the  sheltered side of the stack or a tight  board fence, to lying in a closed shed  or in a part of the yard exposed to the  wind.  Cold rains are most to be dreaded  by the flockmaster. Exposure to one  such rain, if severe and prolonged, may  do more harm than exposure to weeks  of dry cold���������in fact, exposure to dry  cold does not do any harm if accompanied by protection from draft and  wind. Of course the closeness or openness of the wool covering will exert  a very Important influence on resistance t~o~rain, T>uf���������no~clSBS���������of^h'eep"  should be exposed long to a cold rain  if any measure can be taken to prevent it.  CHESTNUT GROWERS'  TALK  High Quality,   Nonwormy   Chestnuts  Bring    Good    Prices���������What   An  Enthusiast Says of Culture.  For thirty years Mr. Lovett, a Pennsylvania farmer, has been an enthusiast on the subject of chestnut culture.  He now has about fifty acres planted  to chestnuts, thirty acres in bearing  and twenty acres in young trees and  nursery rows. The bearing trees are  mostly ten and twelve years old (from  the graft), and at the time of my visit  these trees were heavily loaded with  immense nuts, a bushel or a bushel and  a half to a tree.  "All Paragons?" I asked him. "And  how much do they bring in market  during average years?"  "Mostly Paragons.| I've a very few  Numbos and Itidgeleys, but I find that  the Paragon is a more regular bearer  and morel desirable. The nuts net me  FARMERS' ICE SUPPLY.     ���������  Conditions and   Requirements  For Securing  Plenty  of  Ice  For  Needed  Consumption in Hot Weather.  It is not necessary to build a largo  house to furnish all of the ice necessary for one or iwo families on a farm,  says The Orange Judd Farmer, provided the building is properly packed,  structed and the ice properly packed.  A building 10x12 feat with 12-foot  studding has ample capacity. '  A stone or a, grout wall should be  built about a foot above the surface  of the ground. This wall ought to extend down into the ground at least 2  feet. That part of the wall bolow the  sur/ace of the ground can be constructed of small, loose stones as large, as  The Baby Chrysanthemum.  The accompanying illustration i3 of  a plant or several together in a seven  inch pot of the yellow miniature pompon Chrysanthemum Baby placed on  the market last fall. In color it is a  bright golden yellow, the individual  flowers being from one-half to five-  eighths of an inch in diameter.

I am  now propagating it as fast as pos-  eible."  "How do you market the chestnut  crop?"  "Just sit still and the orders and  buyers come to me. The demand for  chestnuts is steadily increasing because the country's population is  growing. But the supply is rapidly decreasing. Why? Because the native  chestnut trees are being sacrificed to  supply lumber. And where are the  trees to replace those eaten by sawmills? As regards Paragon or other  large varieties, the supply is-'very, very  limited. The few attempts that have  been made to establish (5 commercial  orchards have not generally proved  lastingly successful, usually because of  faulty methods. And the foreign  ���������variety-of-nut-is-too-infer-ior-ini-flavor-j  to deserve notice."  "But," I inquired, "what has become  of the acres and acres of grafted chestnut sprout land that so many farm papers exploited a short time ago? We  were led to expect great things from  such groves."  "I'll tell you. The principle is wrong  -���������all wrong, It seemed all right to  graft Paragon scions on sprouts from  chestnut"stumps and thus quickly secure a grove of bearing trees, but in  actual practice the idea hasn't worked  out well for four reasons: First, the  new trees have an insufficient root system, and the autumn winds on the  hoavy, bur laden tops are very likely  to break tho tree off at the stump;  second, there Is much danger from  fire, owing to the difficulty of keeping  down the constant growth of underbrush; third, the weevil is right on  hand���������in force. In fact, he and his ancestors havo lived on the spot for centuries, and as a result the nuts have  no chance to develop Into commercial  value, nor has the grower any chance  to fight tho weevil, owing to the difficulty of keeping out underbrush ami  the lack of cultivation, and that's tho  fourth reason���������no cultivation, for how  can you cultivate an orchard that Isn't  in row?" W. E. A. in Farm Journal.  COISBLK  STOXK BOTTOM.'  one's list or thereabouts. It is better to  have these stones loose, simply rammed  into the trench, than lo lay them in  cement. If put in loose, they will furnish drainage, which is one of the prime  requisites in keeping ice. Above the  surface of the ground the wall should  be laid in cement mortar. A tile drain  should extend up under the middle ot  the house, and it would be better to  have two. Now fill the building full  of loose cobble stones up to the height*  of the wall. This not only furnishes  drainage but it forms an air chamber,  breaking the connection with the earth  and prevents melting from the bottom.  Sawdust Can be placed on top of these  cobble stones and tramped in to form  a smooth surface for the placing of the  ice. Some people may think that putting this foot of loose cobble stones in  the bottom is unnecessary, and yet, experience has proved to me that it is a  necessary part of the ice-house. For  sills for the building proper use 2x6-  inch stuff, laying it double, so that the  corners can be lapped and the building made strong. Set up 2x6 joists,  18 inches apart. Board on the outside  with common lumber, then put on paper, cover the paper with common clapboards or ship-lap.    ,  The Inside can simply be ceiled up  with any good lumber, avoiding cracks  as much as possible, so that sawdust  will not get into the space between the  studding. This forms a dead air space  of 6 inches. It is not necessary to put  building paper ori the inside, because  when the sawdust is packed against the  sheathing it makes an air-tight space.  For a roof one can use shingles or  i-any-kind-of^Qdam.mcAngi^'"^  side doors should be double and placed  in the end of the building, with building paper between. The bottom door  should extend from the ground up  nearly to the plate, or if this is thought  too long a door for convenience, two  doors may be used. Then above the  plate, which will be in the peak of the  building, a door should be made, be-  cause the space for the lower door will  be filled in filling the house.  Place the ice, leaving a 6 or 8-inch  space between the ice and the inside of  the building. Place the cakes on edge  rather than flat, because they are then  more easily taken out, In front of the  doorway simply put in short boards  which fit in even with the inside sheathing. After every layer of ice is putin,  place sawdust along the outside and  jam it well down. Put the boards  across the doorway as the ice-house is  filled, then when the outside door is  shut, this will also leave a dead air  spaco in the doorway. Use plenty of  sawdust on top of the ice. It ought  to be a toot thick.  In taking out the ice, be careful to  cover well with sawdust. There ought  to bo a small ventilator on the top of  Hollander's Cows Part of Family.  In Holland cows are as much a part  of tlio family as tho Irishman's pig,  for ono member of tho family always  sloops In tho stable to watch, and  often tho placo is made a sort of family sitting-room.
