Inte~izence of Ants.
The testing of the intelligence of
uts is a favorite study of naturalists,
tud recently there have been published
ecounts of some interesting experi
nents to dletermine the seat of the ree
)gnition sense. It is well known that
tints, not only of one species, but of
ne community of the same species,
tre able to recognize one another. while
o members of other colonies or species
hey are markedly hostile. In this last
nestigation the author rejects the
heory that there is a 'language sense"
in the antennae of the ant. stating
that these organs are employed in feel
ing ob~iects of all kinds, both animate
and inanimate. Hie believes, however.
that the antennae have sonme sense of:
smell, and accordingly hie anointed ants
of one community with infusions made
from their friends and foes. When an
ointed with the former. the hostile ants
were not attacked as long as the influ
ence of the infusion persisted. In fur
ther corroboration of this theory it
was found that when an ant was de
prived of its antennae it wouldl attack

Preparing For a~ Peach Orchard.
If the land is fresh and has just beer
cleared, it should he cultivated at least
to years in cottou or some othex
crop adapted to the locality. Should
this new land be too rich for peaches,
the fertility should be reduced by
planting corn or sonme other exhaustive
crop for a year. If it is old and worn
out, it should he restored to a state of
fertility biefore setting out the trees.
The land should be broken up to the
proper depth with a two-horse plow,
followed with a subsoiler if necessary.
Crimson clover, cowvpeas. potatoes 01
other crops which will require fertiliza
tion are excellent as cover crops tc
After the land has received the
proper plowing and subsoiling. I ree~
enmend broadcasting or drilling in
peas in May, using one bushel to the
cre: 130 to 200 pounds of good fertiliz
er per acre will mnaterially increase the
growth. In February or March I break
p the pea vines by running over the
ground with a cutaway harrow, then
turn under ~with a good turn plow. As
the depth of the top) soil has been in
reased, the land canx be plowed to a
greater depth than at the previous
plowing. I subsoil again. if necessary.
and in November the land is ready fox
Another excellent mode of prepara
tion is to sow crimson clover in Sep
tember. first broadcasting with stable
manure or applying good commercial
manure. The clover is plowed undex
in May and peas sown. All peac1i
lands should be thoroughly and deep13
plowed, because after the trees art
planted. and are in growth, they can
not be plowed deeply. All places ir
the orchard where the top soil has beer
washed away should receive carefu
lnd special attention: such places art
ievoid of humus. This must be sup
lied by a liberal application of stale
m~anure or compost. Peas or clover

Most of the unhappiness in married
life might be averted if the cfou-rtship
*s properly carried on. Mothers are
responsible for nearly all of the tears
and heart burnings of their daughters
after marriage. A sensible mother
Cgenerally rears sensible daughters and
will bring up her girls to work-that-is,
to understand thoroughly the ins and
~outs of housekeeping. and those duties
rmust be performed and learned by act
ual experience. A man may admire
his wife for her beauty. her accom
plishments, her .taste in dress, and all
- that, but if she is not a good cook and
housekeeper there will be dissatisfac
tion. It is commonly said that one
must reach! a man's heart through his
stomach. T~here is more truth than
Spoeti in that assertion, but it is not
because meni are fonder of good things
to eat than women. But we will take,
for instance, a clerk in the city or a
farmer in the country. or any man that
t 01orks for a living. He marries and
s ettles down. His main object in life
is to provide for the home he has es
ttablished. The young wife's main oh
Iject is to please. She loves to hear his
footsteps on entering the home, and if
she has had the right bringing up her
dhouse will be neat, tidy and comfort
Iable. She will be prompt with meals
Sand the food will be well cooked, the
t 'ishes nicely served. A smiling face. a
pat on the shoulder and an "Ah, this
is what I call genuine comfort: who
Swouldn't be a married man?" from her
husband should be more of a compli
rment to a wife than all the honeyed
t expressions of admiration that he be
estowed upon her in their courtship. It
shows that she is all and more .than he
expected she could be to him.--Mrs. C.
W. Lawson. in San Francisco Call.
