MY VV. Cl.TKK RUSSELL,
"It's for sure a woman singing to
starboard upon tho sea in tho heart
of the gloom, sir," he exclaimed, his
Scandinavian harshness of pronunci-
ation accentuated by excitement
As he spoke tho mellow chimes of
the ship's bell struck five times to in-
dicate half-past ten. The captain
emptied his glass, put down his pipo
and went on deck. I followod him.
The night lay the blacker against
the sk'ht tor tlio contrast of the
cheerful lamp-light in the cabin, but
after a little one saw >. star or two
trembling between the squares of
the rigging and tho obon lino of the
ocean in the west, where there was
a sort of faintness in tho sky, with a
keener gleam in' the luminaries thoro
as though wind was coming from
that quitter. The captain went to
the starboard rail a little before tho
mizzen-rigging and listened. The
second mate in a minute criod:
••There, sir; dy'o hear it?"
••1 caught it," said I.
'"Yes," exclaimed Captain Chris-
tian, "a twang as of a Jews-harp.

But my younger and perhaps finor
ear found something very different
from that in tho thin, apparently

All that I could distinguish was that
sho was a woman of tho average

As the echoes of tho seaman's
gruff voice died away in tho cunva-
alott tho sound of a woman singing
upon the water again arose. Noth-

imagined. The darkness of tho
night put such *a quality of mystery

Sho started as though not under-

a dramatic gesture over her back.

Turnl|t* for Cows.
From the Farmers' Review: Scores
of the best dairymen ot Sheboygan
county, A'isconsin, are feeding all the
turnips they can raise to their milch
cows. Occasionally some butter is in-
jured, but they know it's their own
fault or an accident I have used dy-
namite for years to blow ou' stumps
and stones, but I have used caution, 1
have handled it carefully; I could
easily get blown to pieces. I can feed
fifteen pounds of turnips to a milch
cow and injure her milk, or 1 can feed
her thirty pounds in the same time
and get nice milk. My whole milk
went daily to Chicago during October,
1893, when 1 was feeding large rations
of turnips, and the expert who received
the milk said; "No taint there."
(live me forty bushels of oats and
twenty of turnips to feed a milch cow
in winter, rather than sixty bushels of
oats, yet one bushel of good oats fed
alone is worth two or three of turnips.
1 can raise from ten to fifteen times as
many turnips on an acre as I can oats,
and except harvesting, for about the
same cost, and the tops go far toward
paying for harvesting. Tho loss of
one good cow by death and damage to
several others every year from garget
and so forth, take off the profits.
I have been taking statistics for years,
of dairies about here that are fed
roots much of the winter, compared
with those that get silage and those
that are confined to dry feed. The root
fed dairies, when the roots are
fed with Intelligence, have few aftiic-
tions. Take my case: One case of
milk fever and one of eversion of the
womb in twenty years. About 2 in 100
retain the placenta; garget, stopped
teats and damage from inflammation
rarely known. Twenty years passed
in succession without my losing one
cow. Do I think turnips do all this
for me'.' I think it one great factor. I
like oats and clean wheat bran and oil
meal—Silage? No! Silage is not pure
food—as well as I do turnips. Ail
have their proper place as a cow food.
Turnips, I say, fed with intelligence,
turnips nearly ice cold, fed to cows
standing in cold stables or ex
postd out doors,give cows a wonderful
appetite for something to eat and
that is about all the good they do. It
is just as easy to learn to feed cows

best method for arranging the ins: le

to 1,000 pounds is from fifteen to
twenty pounds of hulls and from four
to eight pounds of cotton seed meal
per day. An experiment made at the
Texas station (IS. 0, It. H8U, p. Ill) in-
dicated that hulls had a higher nutri-
tive value than corn silage. In an-
other experiment at the same station
(1!. 10) the addition of bilage to a ra-
tion of cotton seed meal and hulls in-
creased the total gain, but did not
change the cost of gain per pound.
As compared with hulls, steers fed oli
silage gained 4.54 pounds per day anii
on hulls J. 1 pounds, cotton seed meal
being added in each case. The cost
of food per 10 ) pounds of gain with
hulls at S I and silage at f'i per ton,

hulls. The aii ion of hay to a ration
of cotton see . meal and hulls increased
the total gain and also increased the
; cost per pour. . of gain. A half pint
of molasses per day caused an in-
creased consumption of cottonaseed
meal and hulls, and consequently a

As old ge "-e are better layers and

geese are a.ways in demand in the
markets, a poultryman finds it will
pay to keei) the old ones, as they are
prolific for twenty years.
