Gov't Report Ike Care of lff!s. A many of the citizens of Spri i:r-ville1 i:r-ville1 keep chickens, the kind of a home for them, where it should be and the kind of soil best adapted is ably explained in th Fanners" Bulletin No. 41, and we publish it for their benefit : Too often the location of the poultry house is thought of minor importance, and consequently is given les consideration than that of any other funn building. Frequently the other buildings are located first and -I 1- l ,.1....1 ..V. ,U u.e pmnwy uouw vueu P.a. l-u .... ,UG , mostcoBvenient space, when i t should hava receired consideration before the largr buildings were all located. Id caring for the various classes of livestock, the question of labor is always' an important item, anil the class that requires the closest attention atten-tion to petty details, as a rule, requires re-quires the greatest .amount of labor. As poultry kesping is wholly o business busi-ness of (Utails, ths economy -of labor in performing ths necessary work is of great imporUwe Buildings not conveniently located and arranged become expensive on account of unnecessary un-necessary labor. As it is necessary to visit pmltry houses several times each day in the year, convenience is of more importance impor-tance than In case of almost any other farm building. The operations! must be performed frequently, so that little Inconvenience in the, arrangements of the buildings will cause not onjy extra expense in the care, but in many cases a greater or less neglect of operations that ought to be p rfornied carefully each day. Poultry houses are likely to be more or less infested with rats and mice, unless 60iue mans are. provided to exclude them, and this should be taken into account in selecting a location. It is generally best to locate the poultry house at som) distance dis-tance from othsr farm buildings, especially If grain is kept in the latter. Convenience of access and freedom from vermin are two desirable desir-able points to be secured, and they depend largely upon the location. Everything considered, it is safest to have the house quite isolated. A dry, porous soil is always to be preferred as a site for building and yards. Cleanliness and freedom from moisture must be secured if the greatest fineness is to be attained. Without doubt, lilth and moisture are the cawcR, cither directly or Indirectly, of the majority of poultry diseases, and form the stumbling block which brings discouragement and failure to tuanv amateurs. It must not be inferred that poultry can not le successfully reared and profitably kept on heavy .soils, for abundant proof to the contrary is readily furnished by successful poultrymen whs have to contend with this kind of land. The necessity for cleanliness, however, is not disputed dis-puted by those who have had extended extend-ed experience in caring for fowls, particularly the less hardy breeds. That an open, porous soil can be kept comparatively clean with much less labor than a clay soil will b,; evident to those who are at all acquainted with the habits of -domesticated fowls. When the fowls are confined in buildings and yards, that part of the yard nearest the buildings will become more or less filthy from the droppings and continual tramping to which It is subjected. A heavy or clayey soil not only retains all of the manure on the surface, but bv retarding retard-ing percolation at times of frequent showers aids materially in giving to the whole surface a complete coating of filth. If a knoll or ridge can be elected where natural drainage is perfect, the ideal condition will be nearlr approached. Where natural favorable conditions as to drainage dc not exist, thorough underdrainage will go a long way toward making the necessary amends to insure success. lit lapndent Impersonator.

A Canton, ()., dispatch savs : 'President-elect, Mckinley will go from Canton to Washington in a remarkable re-markable car. It is a private car without a name, save that it is known all over the Pan Handle system as 'No. 38.' The walls of it are of white oak, planked solid instead of the usual studding. If it should roll down an embankment- the sides, wuu'd nut break, and it would resist almost any kind of shock in a collision. The top is a doublh frame work of steel, and the ceiling is thoroughly cushioned. The floor is four thicknesses of heavy white oak. The entire car is a huge indestructible box. The chief luxury of the interior is the perfect arrangement arrange-ment of everything pertaining to home comfort, it has an old-l':isliinn- 1 ed log (ire place and two palatial bedroom apartments with brass bedsteads bed-steads in each, and a bath opening from each uhamber.

The incidents of the story, which are particularly striking, have produced more than a passing impression upon the minds of the household in which it occurred, the members being ueith-ersupi-rstitious. imaginative nor nervous. ner-vous. While the sou of the household house-hold was absent on a visit, to n distant state, the daughter of the h nis.' and her mother were one evening pleasantly discussing the wedding wed-ding of a cousin, when suddenly the girl screamed and fell back in her chair speechless. Her mother quickly quick-ly crossed the distance between them and so soon as the daughter was able to speak, she said that she had seen her brother standing before her, his head and the lower part of the body being slightly indistinct. The vision gradually laded away and she soon recovered her equilibrium, thinking little more of the matter. On the brother's return, however, they questioned ques-tioned him as to what he had been doing on thatnighl. He said that be had been to an intertaininent in the country with some of his cousins and as they were returning home on horseback, his saddle slipped. He leaned down to tighten the girth, which frightened the horse. Tha hnrse made a leap straight into the air and on coming down slipped ami fell, the weight of his body coining across the boy's legs and the fall rendering ren-dering him unconscious. It was sometime before his cousins could restore re-store hi in to ttonsciousuesa, but they succeeded and it was found he had s-isuimd no worse an injury than a sprained shoulder, though for a brief t in bis life was in jeopardy.
