If lawns require enriching, in may be easily done in open weather by spreading evenly and uniformly any finely pulverized manure, which will be washed among the roots of the grass by winter and spring rains, and assist a fresh and green growth. But the practice, sometimes witnessed, of defacing lawns with coarse manure in large lumps, and rendering them repulsive instead of ornamental, should be avoided. Bees found in a tree belong to the owner of th< tree, and another person acquires no ownership in them because of marking the tree. Game found in snares belongs to the owner of the land, and not tu the trespasser who may have set the snares. A swarm of bees, leaving their hive and setting upon the land of another, are the property of the original owner so long as he can keep them in sight, and thus establish their identity. In some winters mice are abundant, and when they call get at the bark of apple and pear trees they will do great harm in a short time. Small, com- pact, conical mounds of earth, beaten smooth late in autumn, around thetfmse of each tree, will shut out the mice. But if the trees have not received this care, special attention should be given whenever there is a fresh fall of snow, which should be trodden hard around every tree. This will keep the mice from them. For milk fever in cows, a new remedy is one and a half pints of fresh lard aud one half-pint of kero- sene oil, to be given in new milk. The lard re- quires to be melted, after which the oil is to be stirred in. This makes a dose, and it should be re- peated in two hours. It is claimed that two doses have wrought a perfect cure in serious cases. Put away the milk at once when it is served. In five miuutes, an authority says, milk that is left uncovered and standing near any drain or on the bricks near a garbage pail will imbibe enough impurities to make it spoiled for the baby's use. i.
