sures me there is no trouble in raising a
crop of colocynth, as it will grow readily -
on poor soil and produce fruit with very
little cultivation. There is no bug, fly,
,ivorm or other insect that will interfere
with its growth.
There is one point on whicT Dr. Shra- .
der is not yet satisfied, and that is the
curing or drying of the fruit in order to
get it into marketable shape, as it seems "

A Seedless Florida Orange.-
Editor Florida Farmer and Fruit-Grower:
In your very valuable paper of No-
vember 23d Isaw an article dated Yoko-
homa, Japan, and written by Mr. E. E.
Amoore, describing the seedless Unshiu
orange and its merits, and I write this
to suggest that perhaps' we now have
this orange growing in Florida. Two or
three years ago Railroad Cale (or Kale),
a colored man who lives at Orange
Springs, showed me some oranges, which
he said grew on his place as well as
among his neighbors, and which, from
his description of the tree and the ap-
pearance of the fruit, resembles very
closely the orange described by Mr.
Amoore. The fruit he gave me re-
sembled the Tangerine somewhat in the
facility with which the peel is removed,
and in color, though I think not so much
flattened. They were seedless, and he
said were propagated from cuttings. He
described the tree as spreading over ,the
ground as in Mr. Amoore's description.
If you have correspondents at Orange
Springs, it will be easy for you to get
some of the fruit and make a full inves-
tigation of the matter, and if .it should
prove to be the same orange, or even a
valuable addition to our native varieties
you would, confer quite a boon on the
many readers of your paper by making
it known, as well as save to:the people of
Florida the heavy expense and delay of
introducing it from California. I write
this to call your attention to what may
be of value to you and your paper. The
man Railroad Cale is, I doubt not, well
known in your city, as he had some
prominence a few years ago in political
affairs. W. C. V.
SIsco, Fla., Dec. 15, 1887.

Heavy Manuring.
It is a great blunder to attempt to grow
vegetable crops without the use of ma-
nures of various kinds. I never yet saw
soils of any kind that had borne a crop
of vegetables that would produce as good
a crop the next season without the use
of manure, no matter how rich the soil
may be thought to be.
An illustration of this came under my
observation last season. One of my
neighbors, a market gardener of twenty
years' experience, and whose grounds
have always been a perfect model of pro-
ductiveness, had it in prospect to run a
sixty foot street through his grounds.
Thinking his land sufficiently rich to
carry through a crop of cabbages with-
out manure, he thought it useless to
waste money by using guano on that
portion on which the street was to be,
but on each side he sowed guano at the
rate of- 1,200 pounds to the acre,
and planted the whole with early cab-
bages, .
,The effect was the most marked I ever
saw. That portion on which the guano
had been used sold off readily at $12 per
hundred, or about $1,400 per acre, both
price and crop being more than the av-
"erage; but the portion from which the
guano had been withheld hardly aver-
aged $8 per hundred. The street occu-
pied fully an acre :of ground, so that my
friend actually lost over $1,050 in crop
by withhold ig $60 for manure. ..
Another neighbor, with a lease only
one year to run, also unwisely concluded
it would be foolish' to waste manure on
his last crop, and so planted and sowed
all without. The result was, as his ex-
perience should have taught him, a crop
of inferior quality in every article
grown and loss on his eight acres of
probably $2,000 for that season.-Nation-
al Stockman.

A Mole Trap.
An Alabama correspondent of the
Southern Cultivator writes as follows: A
portion of my garden was so infested
that I could raise nothing in it. From a
round iron rod, a quarter of an inch in
diameter. I got the blacksmith to make
me eight spikes about five inches long.
On a piece of plank nearly ten inches
long and three or four wide, I struck
two circles two inches in diameter and
four inches apart. In each of these cir-
cles four spikes were inserted. Next, I
procured a heavy plank, ten or twelve
feet long, for a deadfall, and made a set
of .common trap triggers to set it.
Knowing that the mole continued to
travel back and forth in the same track,
a small place was pressed down on his
track, and the spikes placed so that one
set would be on each side of the depres-
sion The deadfall was set at right an-
gles to the mole track, and so that the
end of the trigger would rest on the de-
pression. No matter from which side
the mole came, he rooted up The depres-
sion and threw the deadfall, which
drove t he spikes through his body. -The
place was soon cle'redl of moles, and not
a sign of one has been seen in the garden
for the last twelve or fifteen years.

Large Persimmons. .
Evidence continues to accumulate as
to the adaptability of Middle Florida to
fruit culture. Judge P. W. White has
left at the store of Byrd & Denham some
monster Japan persimmons, measuring
more. than three inches across, and
weighing nine ounces -Floridian.
The above are quite small compared
with some raised by Judge Blackburn
on his farm in the edge of town, and
shown us two weeks ago when we pub-
lished the following:
***We have been shown two very large
persimmons of t.he above variety, grown
by Judge M. M. Blackburn. One measured
twelve and a talt inches in circumference
and weighed seventeen ounces, the other
measured twelve inches in circumference
and weighed fifteen ounces, making
tlirtvy-two ounces. or two pounds for the
two. Lengthwise the larger measured
thirteen, and the smaller twelve and a
quarter inches in circumference.

iVT eterinary Advice.
S The following cases are reported in
1 the Southein"Live Stpck Journal, and'
S.; prescribed for byDr.-l.p. Phares:
"i Please give remedies for dry and
bloody murrain. Some cattle here have
hemorrhage of the kidneys, with general
lassitude and die; others appear very
sluggish, 'droop around from twenty-
four hours to several days and die.
When cut open the blood seems to be
collected in the sides, but not ilthe hol-
low of the stomach, with dhrk sediments.
The food is dry and hard and clogged in
the stomach. It is called here murrain.
ANswER.-The disease receives differ-
ent names as it locates its more manifest
symptoms in one part or another. The
form you mention is everywhere known
as bloody murrain. It is a form of an-
thrax fever in which the tumors form in
the bowels and other internal parts in-
stead of the external parts, causing
bloody urine, bloody alvine evacuations
and-1 blood from. eyes and nose, in some
cases, with tenderness over back or
sides. "The blood collects in the sides
with dark sediment," as you 'describe it,
and often at such spots, when the hand
passes over them a crackling is felt or
heard. Any external enlargement, in-
stead of being warmorhotasin ordinary
swellings, arecool orcold from cessation
of blood circulation
As the disease is very often caused by
impure pool or other water and by in-
fected vegetation, both water and pas-
ture must be changed without delay.
Give all the pure water the patient will
take all the time, or water in the proporr
tion of two gallons to one ounce of sul-
S phite of soda, kept where it can be drank
: as desired by the patient. -Give as a
drench, every six hours, two ounces
sulphice of soda and one ounce chlorate
of potash dissolved in a quart of water.
Give midway between these doses one
teaspoonful of thymo-cresol and one.
tablespoonful of tincture muriate'of iron
in a quart of water. At the same inter-
Svals bathe with the last mixture all ex-
ternal swellings or tender or crepitating
parts. Sick animals should he separated
from the well, and all carcasses must be
burned or deeply buried. Other species
of animals, as well as man, may be
inoculated by contact. P.
Please give me through Journal the
best remedy for Texas mange or itch
S among horses. SUBSORIBER.
ANsWER.-Wash very thoroughly all
diseased parts with strong soapand tepid
water, scrubbing so as to break all vesi-
-cles and remove all scales, scurf and
Sscabs. Then wash thoroughly with
Sthymo-cresol-one tablespoonful upon
which a quart of tepid waters poured to
mix. Repeat once or twice in a week or
After the soap and 'water scrubbing.
Mr'.- Dun recommends dressing the
mangy parts with an ointment made of
iodine, half ounce; iodine of potash, one-
fourth ounce; tar, one ounce, and lard
eight ounces. In mixing up.-this oint-
ment it must not come in contact with
any metal: mix in glass or earthen ves-
sel with a glass rod or piece of wood.

horse with a bad cough of six or eight
weeks' duration, produced probably by
neglect after hard driving, C
W. C. W
ANSWER.-Chlorateof potash, Fowler's
solution each, one ounce; extract bella-
donna. tincture of capsicum each, one
drachm once a day in qne quart of linseed
tea, or gruel or milk. Protect carefully
from sudden cooling, especially after
using. Stimulating frictions on chest
and throat may do much good. Cloth-
ing may be required to keep the skin
always active, without which medicines
Swill do little good. P.
About Driving Horses.
When a horse is allowed to fall into
slow paces he becomes aged and inca-
pacitated long before his natural time,
his-sinews and joints become stiff and
contracted, and he is as permanently
injured as though strained by overwork
and. too heavy loads. Just the same asa
man who goes in for a moderate amount
of athleticexercise will retain juvenility
to an advanced period of life, so also will
the active, lively horse retain his youth
and usefulness. He w.ll not only do a
day's work per week more than the
crawler, a matter pregnant with great
results when spread over an entire coun-
try, but he will continue to do it for
several years longer than the slow horse.
-The Husbandman.
Never ride a horse without first making
his acquaintance and securing his good
will. Go to his bead, speak kindly, pat
him. ,ook in his eyes.. Whether you are
a friend or a foe he will judge by your
voice, your eye and your breath. Horses
judge a man as quick as a man does a
horse. Feed and water abundantly at
night after work and theanimal has had
time to cool oft. Feed moderately in the
morningor before work. Parthians and
Arabs prepare. their horses for hard
drives'by fasting rather than feasting.
More horses are injured by hard driving
on a full stomach than by any other
process. Never let a horse eat or drink
much'bwhen be is hot from work. Study
your horse, treat him according to his
nature!, make him your friend, and he
will do better and safer work.-Ex.

Feed'and breed go and in hand in the
amount abd quality of the butter product,
but-feed is of the most importance. It
matters not what the breed may be, if
he feed is insufficient or of a poor qual-
ity, the butter product will not be satis-
Mi king rapidly does not mean jerking
sharply or moving with haste or irregu-
lar motions in the presence of the cow.
Such a course would counteract the very
thing aimed at.
Try the experiment of washing the
cream. It sounds funny, but thedoctors
say it is a good thing to make the butter
come easy and in fine form. It is done
by pouring water in the cream and al-
lowing it to stand for several hours.
Somehow dairymen feel more at ease
now that their old enemy,oleomargarine,
is under restraint, for if their products
bring no higher prices, there is at least
an honest market.
The age of a cow has much to do with
her value as a milker. A cow with her
first calf never milks as well as with her
third or fourth one, and for a dairy ani-
mal, as a rule, is unprofitable. For this
reason care should be taken in buying
cows for the daily-to obtain those with
their third or, fourth calves, not with the
first one.
There is not a farmer in the country
who would think for a moment of breed-
ing inferior animals. With bis cattle,
sheep..andhorses it is all the same, he is
constantly endeavoring to improve them
by the infusion of better blood. Why
should not the same idea be carried, to a
certain extent, at least, into the vegeta-
ble kingdom?-
The water which dairy cows drink, if
impure, will spread its impurity to their
milk, and the quantity and quality of
their food also makes 'its influence felt
upon the quantity and quality of the

Poultry Statistics.
It is generally believed that figures
won't lie, says a correspondent of the
Ohio Farmer, but just now I do not feel
quite sure of the truthfulness of some of
the figure; that have heen made concern-
ing tie cash value of theannual poultry
product of the United States. Some
four or five years ago James E. White,
an Illinois breeder, figured like this:
. New York City and State consume
about $45,000,i000 of poultry and eggs
annually, and as the population-of both
city and State is about 5,082,871, the.
average consumption of poultry and eggs
amounts to about $9 per head annually.'?
Figuring from that basishemade out the
people of the United States consumed
t495,l)000.00i of poultry and eggs every
year. To this hlie added $64,000,000 as
the value of fowls kept for breeding and
laying, and $61.i0U.1161 as the value of
thorougbred fowls and eggs, making the
nice little sum of t559,600,000. But M3r;-
White wasn't, quite satisfied with those
figures, for he declared the full statistics
would more than show $600,000,000. -
SI. K. Felch goes at the problem in an-
other way. He estimates-that each one
of our 50)00,000 of people eat an egg a
day, and that the eggs are worth an
average price of 25 cents a dozen. The
poultry consumed he estimates at $121.-
666.648. the stock kept over at $4-5.000,-
000, making a total annual value of
The New England Homestead. taking
the statistics given in the tenth census
report as a basis, figures $139,906,490:
then allows some for ."shortage," and
calls the actual value of the poultry
products, $200.000,000. The Homestead
values "bXTnyard fowls" (which includes
all the improved breeds) at 50 cents each,
geese, ducksand turkeys at 60 cents, eggs
at 12 cents a dozen, and poultry meat at
10 cents a pound.
The Rev. J. Y. Hoyt said at the Bed-
ford; N. Y. farmers' club, that the
annual value of the poultry products
amounted to $560.00,,00 In comment-
ing on the reverend gentleman's figures,
the Ohio Farmer figures out only $65,-
800,000 a year. And yet Dr., Spalding
says that "mathematics reveal theactual
reality of things." that "beyond all
things else on earth figures are fullest of
truth" Well it may be so, but I find it
hard work to believe that all these figures
ara "full of truth." They can't be.
There is lots of "guess work" about them:;
in fact, I feel sure that they are all the
result of guess work. Even the figures
given in the tent census report, except
those giving the number of fowls, are
unreliable, for not one farmer in 100 can
tell bow many dozens of eggs his hens
lay in a year. or how many pounds of
poultry meat. he raises in the same time.
But, after thinking the matter over.
and taking into consideration the fact
that.the poultry interest has increased
rapidly within the last half dozen years,
I "guess" that the Homestead's figures
come nearer the 'actual reality of
things" than any of the others.
Another thing, whether the annual
value of our poultry produce foots up at
65,006,00.00 orat 6(),)00,00,0.we do notyet
produce eggs enough to supply our own
markets. Millions of dozens (over 16
millions in 1865) are imported into the
United States every year.

Indigestion is best known by the
moping about of the birds, and upon ex-
amination the breath is found to be very
offensive. It is simply the result of
feeding on too rich food, and, if neglect-
ed, develops into some more serious dis-
ease, so that it is important to take steps

IRF tton Seed Mleat. The
Hines" Egg Preserver.
E.iv, 1- F!;r:al F ,r ,, : ," ii-i1 F +liH-G ro,, re.
In reply to the inquiries fioi, Mr.
Swan and Mr. Owens, which yo:u refer
to me. I will sa):
First-Cotton seed meal, in small
quantities, is good for all fowls, young
or old. For laying hens I would advise
a pint to three quarts of soft feed every
day, but thesoft food should not contain
much if any corn u.eal, for both cotton
seed meal and corn in any shape are fat-
tening. A good feed for laying hens
consists of equal parts of corn and oats
ground, wheat bran, whole oats, cotton
seed meal, with a handful of salt to each
hundred fowls, the whole scalded with
boiling hot water early in. the morning.
After stirring stiff cover closely and feed
at 4 p. min. In the morning feed wheat,
oats and buckwheat alternately for a
change. During a very/'cold spell a
little whole corn is admissable.
Our breeders of fancy stock usually
feed oil cake to fit their feathered tribe
for a show. It adds gloss to their feath-
ers, and cotton seed meal will have the
same effect.
Mr. Owens inquires about the Hineb'
Preserver. A man of the name of Hines,
of Dayton, Ohio, patented an egg pre-
server, and meeting ,ith unusual suc-
cess he formed a company at Chicago to
manufacture it on a large scale, and it is
used largely by commission men in the
West and Northwest, where eggs' are
plentiful and cheap and the market is
overstocked. They buy the surplus at a
low figure and put them down in vats by
the hundred dozen, and often realize a
handsome profit.
The advantage claimed by the Hines
method is that it will keep eggs abso-
lutely fresh for an indefinite time, and
they can be used for any purpose for
which fresh eggs are used. After being
in the liquid for sixty days they can
be taken ou and will keep as well out as
in the preserver, and the shell is not dis-
colored. The preserver is put up in two
and a half gallon cans and sells at $1.25
per can. The price has recently been
reduced from $2.
If a demand for the goods would war-
rant their establishing an agency in
Florida where it could be had at retail,
I have no doubt they would do so, but
my experience would not warrant person'
sending for a small quantity. I paid
$1.90 freight on two cans. One can will
preserve 120 dozen. A kerosene barrel
makes a good vat. Get a new, one,
knock one head in, and light a handful
of grass or paper. Throw it in the barrel
and let it. burn until well charred, and
you have a good barrel for any use. To
extinguish it turn the open end down.

Preserving Egzs.
To pack eggs for home-use, just stand
them on the small end in salt, taking
care that the eggs do not touch each
other and are completely covered with
'the salt, and keep them in the coolest
place at your command. Pack only
perfectly fresh, clean eggs." If no male
fowls are kept with the hens, the eggs
will keep longer.
Most dealers who make a business of
packing eggs use the lime and salt,
pickle. Here is the recipe:
"One bushel of stone lime, eight quarts
of fine salt, twenty-five 10-quart pails of
water. The salt should be clean and the
water pure.".'
Slake the lime with a portion of the
water, then add the rest of the water
and the salt. Stir well at intervals three
or four times, and then let stand until
settled and cold. Dip or draw off the
clear pickle into the cask or vat, in which
the eggs are to be put. When you have
about hfifteen inches of pickle in the cask
begin to put in the eggs. and when they
are in about a foot deep, spread over
them some of the pickle that is a 'little
"milky." madeso b\ lightly stirring upi
some of the light particles of lime that
settled last. Do this as each lot of eggs
is added. The object of this is to have
the fine lime drawn in the pores of the
shells, as it will be by a sort of induc-
tive process, and completely seals the
eggs. Take care and not get too much
of this lime in, for it will make them
difficult to clean when taken out. When
the eggs are within four inches of the
topof the package, cover them with a
piece of cotton cloth, and spread on,the
cloth two or three inches of the lime
that settles in making the pickle. The
pickle should at all times cover the eggs.
In putting the eggs in the cask take a
tin basiu that will hold three, four, or
even six dozen, punch full of holes,
muffle the edge with leather and, attach
a long handle. Fill the basin with eggs.
put both under the pickle and turn the
eggs out carefully: they will go to the
bottom without breaking.
The place where the eggsare kept must
be clean and sweet, free from all foul
odors, and where a steady low tempera-
t. re can be maintained, the lower the
better: i. e., down to any point above
that ot freezing.-Fanuy Field.

Authorities on Apple'"Scale."
In a paper read by A. M. Hatch on
Apple Scale before the American Pomo-
logical society, he explained that apple
scale is caused by a fungus that also at-
tacks the leaves. Where it attacked the
leaves it caused them to drop, weakened
the trees and led to winter killing. Like
other fungi it thrives best in warm, wet
weather, and, therefore, a summer of
drought is unfavorable to its development,
and to this extent a blessing. Crab apples
ate especially liable to. the disease in its
leaf form. In reference to prevention
and cure, this disease belonged to the
same family of fungi (the Peronosporas)
that causes one kind of grape rot, and
that is too deep rooted to be prevented by
outside applications. He advised discard-
ing such varieties as are most liable to its
attacks. Some varieties of apples develop
a waxy secretion upon the fruit and
leaves, and he finds that such varieties
are less liable to contract the disease.
