The device is of such proportions that when not in use it can be readily carried in the pocket. It consists of two flat pocket-like sections or clips, having open tops so that they are adapted to fit over the edge of the axe blade with a spring connecting the sections and causing them to automatically engage with the blade. This device will be gqually appreciated by the lumbermen of the Northwest camps, whose constant companion is the axe with which the monarchs of the forest are felted. The tool made use of by these men have razor edge at all times, and men are often seriously cut by accidentally coming in contact...

2 AS PLAIN AS 4 NOSE. A Commuter Who Baa Heard of Sherlock Holmes Tries Deduction. "Don't look up now," said Mr. Hemlock Homes to bis fellow commuter, the horse doctor, "but when you do look up take particular notice ot the man Bitting directly across the car from us, who seems to be half asleep." The veterinarian raised his eyes after a brief Interval, and regarded with a searching look the person indicated. "What do you deduce?" asked Hemlock Homes. "Well," said the horse doctor, "1 see no evidence of heaves; his mind seams to be all right. I should say that he has neither ringbone nor spavin. But I should want to see his gait before saying that it has no springhalt." "These things are matters of observation and not of deduction," said Mr. Homes, a trifle nettled. "Now endeavor to follow me. "That man," Mr. Homes went on, "is employed in an office; his liver ,is slightly out of order and he wears spectacles when at work." "Wonderful!" exclaimed the veterinarian. "How do you malce ...

Taoercmosis is Communicable. Tuberculosis, like other commu- . nicable disease*, does not originate spontaneously, it is communicated bjr the tubercle which comes in contact with the glands or lungs of a sound animal. Insanitary environments may hasten the spread of the disease.—Farmers' Home Journal. New British Cattle Regulation. Oonsnl Edward B. Walker, of vßurslem, England, writes that under an order of the Board of Agriculture Fisheries, which came into force January .1, 1908, no horse, ass or lule brought to Great Britain, from »ny other country, except Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, is to be landed in Great Britain unless accompanied by a certificate of a veterinary surgeon to the effect that he examined the animal immediately before it was embarked, or while it was on board the vessel, and that he found the animal did not show symptoms of glanders or farcy. —American Cultivator.

JX ~ ATTt f : <^H|^^^HBk! ' Don't Neglect the Stock. The neglect of sheep and lambs brings the farmer out of pocket, well as in other stock upon the farm. Let good care and good feed be the infallible rule with all farm stock; A Waste to Doctor, tto ninety-nine eases out of every hundred it is a waste of time to doctor sick chickens. It may pay some time when the fowl is an especially fine one, but aB a rule you can save worry by using the hatchet. Good care, good food and cleanliness make the best physic, and If these are systematically applied, there will be but few sick fowls. When to Trim Trees. An authority upon the subject of fruit growing says that he prefers winter to spring for pruning his orchard. The tree, perhaps, does not peel off so easily when rubbed by the ladder or the boot heels.

10 r- Not a Fat Cow. A good milk cow never gets rolling fat. Her surplus food goes Into the. milk bucket. As soon as she begins to .fatten she will decrease her flow of milk.—Farmers' Home Journal. Keeps a Lantern Safe. The lantern is a barn necessity, but it is not necessary to take risks of setting the place on fire. Keep the lantern out of the stalls. Run a wire across the barn, behind the stalls, and high enough to be out of the way. Then with a hook or rein snap the lantern may be suspended to the wire and quickly moved along the whole length of the barn.—Tribune Farmer. Cattle Colors. Will you kindly give me the colors of Durham, Ayrshire and Hereford cattle? A. W. P. "Durham," generally called Short-Horn, cattle, are red, white and roan, the last being a mixture of red and white, almost confined to this breed; they never have any black, except about the muzzle, and it is objectionable there.

pjm. fiM&tfs POULTRY POINTERS. There are 8,120 feathers in the average hen's suit. The farmer who raises poultry can always obtain ready money. Be careful to get eggs from the best 2-year-old layers for hatching. Handy nests are a comfort to the liens and a great convenience to egg gatherers. Experiments show that the yearling hen lays 40 per cent, more eggs than the hen 2 years old. It is not a good plan to feed grown up fowls too much soft food, as it tends to make them dyspeptic. In estimating the cost of keeping poultry it is best to aliow one bushel of grain a year to each laying hen. With hens it Is much better to keep the appetite sharp, compelling them to be active and search for food. When you are directed to provide good for your chickens, it means to give them a variety of sound, wholesome food. A chick that is continually chilled seldom amounts to much, because vitality is used up to resist and overcome abuse. The greater the variety of food given to poultry ...

12 farm «* to a relet? - PIGS AND CONCRETE. I should like to hear from some of your readers In regftrd to concrete floors for pig pens. All our pens have concrete floors, therefore young and old must lie on It.** Last . winter most of our young pigs got lame, and. as they grew their legs got crooked. They continued lame until midsummer. They actsd as if they had rheumatism. I have talked the matter over with the owner of the place, and he seems to think concrete floors with plenty of bedding are the only sanitary place for pigs to lie on; but I know from observation, that in cold weather pigs partly cover themselves with their bedding and lie directly on the floor. 'Will pigs get rheumatism from concrete floors that are well bedded T T. M. L. Monmouth County, N*. J.

14 farm Garden RAISING CALVES WITHOUT MILK. Hush S. Van Pelt sayß, in the Jersey Bulletin, that it may be said that raisins calves firom the time they are one week old without milk is a very difficult task, and I doubt yery much whether it is possible to raise calves yery well without some milk until they are a month or six weeks old, at which time they usually begin eating some grain and' hay. There are two or three prepared calf foods on the marrket which are claimed, by their makers, to be very excellent for this purpose, but I have had no personal experience with any of them. Flaxseed or oil meal gruel is very good and can be made by steeping either of them in water, and mixing them up with a small percentage of soluble blood flour to prevent scours. For a- young calf, a pound of oil meal - or flaxseed and a teaspoon of blood flour would make sufficient gruel for a day's feeding. This amount could be increased as the calf grew older and stronger. a From Stewart's "Feeding Animal...

The growth of ballooning has led to many cartons investigations touching the atmosphere and Its Inhabitants. By the use of anchored bal loons with self-registering Instruments some of the experiments ol deep sea sounding have been repeated aloft At Strassburg sounding balloons have been sent to a height o! nearly 26,000 yards, and 19,000 to 20,000 yards is not an uncommon height. One of the astonishing things ■aid to have resulted is the discovery at a height of 14,000 yards of an isothermal tone in which, contrary to experience up to that height, temperature does not diminish with recession from the earth. One of the most interesting studlet is that of the flight of birds. The observation of aeronauts appears completely to dispel the old time notions that some birds soared to stupendous heights, Humboldt having credited the condor with over 7000 yards, and 1 others believing that birds o...
