Troper Rntlon. hi They Van From I'rH to Winter. No rulo can bo laid down as to tho quantity qf tho rations that should bo supplied either to young growing horses or to thoso that aro matured. What is euough to kep ono animal thrifty would starve another. About tho only safe rulo is to let tho condition of tho animal determine tho quantity of tho ration. It nlways pays to keep all of tho horses on tho farm in good, thrifty condition. This is necessary with tho young horses in order to get tho best growth and development, aud it is quito an item to hnvo this growth continuous. At no timo is it necessary to keep a growing colt fat. In fact, keeping him fat is a detriment rather than a benefit. Tho ration should bo ono calculated to develop bono and musolo rather than fat Tho work teams must bo in thrifty condition in order that they may do tho most work in tho least timo without in jury to themselves. It is best to commouco feeding a o grain or hay in connection with pasturage rather than to allow them to run down. It is always brst to allow tho growiug colts to run out every day that tho weather will permit. Colts, like sheep, need plenty of frosh air and but it is not good economy to allow them to bo exposed to cold or storms. Ono of tho very best rations that can ho given to growing colts is unthrashed oats, run though a feod cutter, to which a littlo wheat bran is added. If, aftor tho bran is added, tho wholo is slightly dampened, it will bo still better. This makes a completo ration, as it supplies tho material needed for tho growth aud development of bono and muscle. It is a good plan to begin feeding a "Bi" ration 01 this in tho fall as tho pastures begin to fail, gradually in creasing until they are given all that they will eat up cloau. Tho teams need 6omo grain every day. When not at work, less is necessary than when at. work. It is poor economy because tho teams aro not at work to let them run down witli tho expectation of feeding hotter aud getting them into proper condition later on. Tho more economical plan is to feed thorn enough to keep thrift all tho timo. Hy keeping them thrifty now les grain will bo needed to keep them so during tho winter. If, after tho fall work is finished up, tho teams aro given a ten days' or two weeks' run in tho pastures, giving, in addition, their regular grain ration, it will bo a great holp in getting them into good shape for winter.

Whatever elso comes iuto play ill tho tlocorativo scheme, is regarded as accessory. But, while, tho consideration of that part of tho subject which treats of what may properly bo called foundation effects is of chiefest importance, tho consideration of accessories should not bo neglected, for by thousoof thorn wo seouro variety and can produco effects that could not bo brought about if nothing but ovorgreeus was used. Cedar is used extensively in tho manufacture of wreathing for festooning arches aud many other parts of a building, bnt if you want pleasing results do not coufiuo yourself to it to tfio oxolusiou of other varieties of evergreen. If you do, you aro ccrtaiu to havo too much sameness, aud tho result will bo a very tamo offect. Spruco is valuablo whero flat work is to bo douo becauso of its flat habit of branch formatiou. Hemlock, for somo reason, is seldom used, but it is very beautiful and lends itself to fino effects much better than ppruce or cedar. Pino, becauso of its bolder aud more irregular habit, will bo found to produco a lighter, airier effect, and it should bo used much moro extensively than it is at present. Largo branches of it aro extremely pleasing whou used whero tho streuutii and dicnitv which characterizo them can bo brought out fully. Newer attempt to make uso of them in places whero their natural freedom lias to bo hampered aud restricted. Mako them into wreathing, and they will surely disappoint you, becauso you havo tortured them into unnatural shapes, aud thoir individuality, which is ouo of their charms, is lost. If you havo a largo surfaco whoso bareness you wish to break up pleasingly, mako a 6ort of panel of it by running a border of greenery around ir, and across it disposo as naturally as posiblo a largo branch or a combination of branches of pine. If full of cones, all tho better. Tho effect will bo very good if tho branches aro allowed to retain their natural shape. If not, tho piece will be suro to haunt you for a long timo to come, with its muto but powerful accusation of your violation of nrtitio taste.
