lite Russian World's fair commis-
sioner' has advised Chief Buchanan
that the Grand Duke Alexander will
sead to (he exposition thirty trotting
horses from his own stables. Evident-
ly the Russians take great pride in
their horses and are anxious that the
world should learn of their good quali
ties. It will be remembered that the
Czar cabled some time ago that he
would send a large consignment of
horses from the Riyal stables and
this together with the exhibit which the
Grand Duke promises will make a
highly interesting show. Quarantine
regulations prevented exhibits of for
eign cattle but it seems 'probable that
Chic Buchanan will succeed in mak-
ing the horse section in a large degree
Theft at the Fair.
"I was told by a member of the na-

the other day" said a Western con-
gressman in telling of the great fair
"that claims'aggregating almost $700-
000 have been filed with that body by
exhibitors for property stolen This
is enormous. During the Paris expo-
sition the entire amount of claims was
only $175000 one-fourth of the
amount of ihoe at.Chicagor and the

is in charge of the apiary exhibit.
In this department honey in all

swarms of Minnesota hees in motion
but Chief Buchanan who is acquainted
with the state and its bees and who
also recently had a bee in his bonnet
refused his consent and this display will
not be made. Anyhow Minnesota
will have 6000 pounds of noney on
exhibit at Jackson Park and expects to
capture all honors in this department.

That hawks areommonly regarded
as enemies of the poHryyard arid
$6vectite is undoubted. .The old
ntizzlelpder tht is near at hand in
nearly every farm-house is brought into
prompt requisition when excitement in
Hicjveif'yard indicates the approach of
the aetial foe Hawks and weasels ate
commonly credited on many a farms
with a material reduction of the pin
money which comes by by way of the
henhouseand never-ceasing warfare
is waged on both these depredators.
If WS were to credit a recent publica-
tion of the department of agriculture
' A Report on the Hawks and Owls of
the United States" there is small
cause for the destruction of these birds
and the farmer has unwittingly been
killing off some of hfs best friends.
This volume was written several years
ago by Dr. A K. Fisher assistant or
nithologist but only recently has provi
sion beep made for the reproduction of
the remarkable handsome and interest-
ing colored illustrations by means of
which every species of bird discussed in
the work can be easily identified
The letter of transmittal from Dr. C.
Hart Merriam chief ornithologist con-
fains the following interesting resume
of the results of the investigations which
form the text of- the volume together
with his conclusions from the same:
The Statements herein contained re-
specting the food of the various hawks
and Owls are based on the critical ex-
amination by scientific experts of the
actual contents of about 2700 stom-
aches of these birds and consequently
may be fairly regarded as a truthful
showing of the noimal food o! each
species. The result proves that a class
of birds commonly looked upon "as
enemies to the farmer and indiscrimi-
n illy destroyed whenever occauon off is
really ranks among his best friends
and with few exceptions should be pre-
served and encouraged to t ike up tneir
abode in the neighborhood of his home.
Only six of the seventy-three species
and subspecies of hawks arid Owls of
the United States are injurious. Of
these three are so extremely rare they
need hardly be considered and another
(the fish hawk) is only indirectly injuri-
ous leaving but two (the sharp-skined
and .Cooper's hiwks) that really need
be taken to account as enemies to ag
ricultuie 0 nitting-the six species
that feed largely on poultry and game
3 3X2 stomachs were examined of
which 56 per cent contained mice and.
other small mammals 37 per cent in-
sect? and only 3! per .cent poultry or
game birds. In view ofthese facts the
folly of ffering bounties for the des true-"
tion of hawks ond owls as has been
done by several states becomes appar-
ent and the importance of an accufate
knowledge of the economic status of
our. common birds and mammals is
overwhelming demonstrated.
To those at all interested in the
feathred kingdom this report will prove
most interesting and to all farmers a
most valuable means of identifying the
marauding hawks which should receive
no mercy from the farmer's son aud
the old shot-gun. The evidence pre
sented is certainly strong enough to
call a halt in the indiscriminate slaugh
ter of the hawk tribes Breeders .Ga

A Great Waste.
The subject of saving stable manure'
in very little studied by the majority of
farmers. Their farms until recently.
have been stored with natural fertility
and they have not seen the importance
of saving this miterial Their almost
universal custom from the early settle
meut of the country has been to raise
grain and sell everything from the
farm without putting anything back
to restore the fertility that has been
taken off from year to year and they
begin to realize that their crops arc not
as good as they were a few years ago
and that something must be done.
The remedy is pay back to the. farm
what you have been taking off all thee
tears in the shape of plant food o There
are several methods of doing this but
the one fo u? to consider at this time
is the use of stable manure. With the
average farmer little or no pains are
t. ken to care for the accumulations
around the barns and the out-houses of
the farin. Barns are usually built on
some elevated land or on a side hill
where the drainage is good in order'
to have a dry yard. Every rain that
cnies there may be seen a large stream
of water discolored with the soluble
and most valuable partol the manure
running down into the ditches of the
road or into om- stream or lake
where it is Inst? Few realize the won-
derful wiSte that is going on in this
way. It has been demonstrated that
manure left spread out Over a yard
during the summer actually loses one-
half or more ot its rcl value. That
means a manure scare .-ly worth haul
vxt and spreading. Again how pftcn
we may see the hog pen and yard built
on he bank ol some lake or stream ot
water and this most valuable of all
m':inu'es around the farm allowed to
drin and wash away thereby making
a great loss of fertility to the farmers
besides polluting the water. Theni
again the manure Iroin the horse
stable is thrown out into a pile resem
bling a hay.stack and all the water
thai falts on it runs off and the bean
Vconi's firefanged and is as worth-
less for manure as so much bulk of dry
