ENTERPRISE was entered May 11, 1889 at the Post Office
at Falmouth, KY., as second class matter.
It is said that rags saturated with kerosene and
fastened in a split stick that has been driven into
the squash, mellons and cucumber hills will keep
Tomato Marmalade: Peel ripe tomatoes, cut them in
small pieces and boil till well done; rub through
a sieve and add one cup of sugar for each tomatos;
boil forty minutes, then pour into small jars.
Taking care of tools and implements is one of the
best modes of economizing on the farm. The value
of the tools annually depreciated from lack of cleaning,
oiling and exposure to weather, is enormous.
A mortar, which it is claimed will stand in all sorts
of weather, is made of one bushel of unslaked lime
and three bushels of sharp sand, to which is added
one pound of alum mixed with one pint of linseed
oil. The alum will counteract the action of frost
on the mortar.
The best of us make mistakes, and what wonder is
it that our boys, with their high spirits and their
ignorance of the world, blunder and get into scrapes
pretty often? But it is a cause of rejoicing of either
father or mother can get hold on a young heart which
leads it to them to open its worst recesses to their
loving eyes. -- The Home-Maker
Peach Meringue: To every pint of stewed and canned
peaches, sweetened to taste, stir in the beaten yolk
of two eggs. Bake in a deep pudding dish fifteen
minutes, then cover with the whites of two eggs,
beaten till very light with two tablespoonfuls of
sugar. Brown in the oven and serve cold with whipped
cream. For peaches substitute any other stewed fruit
at hand if need be. -- Good Housekeeping.
By far the greater part of poultry diseases are on
the outside and their names are hen lice and mites
and spiders. The best remedies are bubach and kerosene,
the former to be used on the fowls and the latter
on the perches, in the nests and in the whitewash.
These two substances give us absolute control of
the insects that infest poultry houses, and consequently
control of the so-called diseases resulting from
Too much corn is used by poultry men and not enough
wheat, oats, barley, middlings, bran and green food.
Clover grown for winter use is valuable, owing to
the large percentage of albumen it contains. Variety
of food is essential to the well being and productiveness
of fowls. The composition of eggs requires variety
of material, and these constituents are found in
plain and cheap food of one kind or another.
There is no difference in feeding value between white
and yellow dent corn. Flint corn, white or yellow,
contains a trifle more of oil or fat than the softer
dent varieties, but not enough to make any practical
difference in feeding value per pound or per ton.
Prof. Armsby, after careful trial, finds no appreciable
difference in feeding values of 100 pounds of yellow
or white varieties, or even of flint or dent sorts.
This being so and you raise some corn to sell - better
plant that that sells the most readily in your market
for the most money, providing the yield is as much.

Domestic Notes of More than Ordinary Interest
housekeepers should know:
That salt will curdle new milk; hence, in preparing
milk porridge, gravies, etc., salt should not be
added until the dish is prepared.
That clear boiling water will remove tea stains and
many fruit stains. Pour the water through the stain
and thus prevent its spreading over the fabric.
That ripe tomatoes will remove ink and other stains
from white cloth; also from the hands.
That a tablespoonful of turpentine boiled with white
clothes will aid in the whitening process.
That boiled starch is much improved by the addition
of a little sperm, salt or gum arabic dissolved.
That beeswax and salt will make rusty flatirons as
clean and smooth as glass. Tie a lump of wax in a
rag and keep it for that purpose. When the irons
are hot, rub them first with the wax rag, then scour
with a paper or cloth sprinkled with salt.
That blue ointment and kerosene mixed in equal proportions
and applied to the bedsteads is an unfalling bedbug
remedy, as a coat of whitewash is for the walls of
a log house.
That kerosene will soften boots and shoes that have
been hardened by water and render them as pliable
That kerosene will make tin teakettles as bright
as new. Saturate a woolen rag and rub with it. It
will .. (remainder illegible on my copy).
