P«R TflE* ? LfiftEMEa MIW , Preserving Eggs With Lard. Cover a fresh egg with a thin coating of lard, it will keep perfectly good for an indefinite period, according to a report of a new method of prefcrving eggs made to the State Department -by Consul MuVphy at Bordeaux. The discovery is of Italian origin, and is regarded as Important, as it is claimed that 100 eggs can thus be preserved with four cents' worth of lard and an hour of time.— Weekly Witness. Heavy Feeding of Dairy Cows. An Eastern dairyman with a herd of Oueruseys feeds considerably more than the average fed over the country —nearly all the cows will clean up—both winter and Bummer. He says: "My preference of grain feed for winter, prices admitting, is four parts of cottonseed meal, two of linseed meal and six of hominy meal, twelve pounds of the mixture with thirty pounds of silage and sit pounds of mixed hay for the average cow. . The larger milkers receiving more grain, it narrows' their ration to some extent."—Wee...

OUR DOOR-YARD. No garden, dear—you understand? We could not spare the room On that close-planted hill-aide farm for what would only bloom; But mother pleaded, with a look of longing in her face, For just a little apot that flowers might brighten with their grace} So tas&led corn and bending oats ana emerald spears of wheat . Waved o'er the wind-swept fields, and by the door were roses sweet. Old-fashioned roses, red and white, and pinks with spier breath. And flaunting peonies, and vines that surely grew by faith, So fast and far their fingers green wove garlands fair and fine. Until the house beneath their touch was radiant as a shrine; 'And shrine it was, where loyal hearts in pure devotion met, And kindled incense fires that bum in hallowed fragrance yet. Within the little door-yard's space, from early spring to fall, We almost had a floral clock, the passing hours to caD. From snow-drops and from lilac plumes to asters braving frost/ No inch of ground, no single day,...
