DUROFF THE ANIMAL TRAINER.
A Man Who Preferred to Teach Five Geese
Irather Than One Boy.
Signor Domino, biographer of clowns,
hareback riders and circus people gen
crally, has written a curious lot of
reminiscences cf the Russian Duroff,
whe famous trainer of trick animals in
the pr.esent generation.
l)uroff was originally an instructor in
Latin and modern languages in a Rus
sian high school. lie practiced then
his owers over domestic animals--first,
of all, his dog-and decided that the
docility of dogs, cats and geese was far
greater than the docility of school
children, lie has never altered his
judgment in this respect. He quit
teaching boys, therefore, and joined an
itinerant circus, to the scandalizing of
his former colleagues.
IDomino met him one morning in the
empty ring of the Circus Schumann.
After talking a few minutes Duroff
"And now you must excuse me for an
hour as I have a class to instruct at this
"But surely you haven't gone back to
teaching?" exclaimed Domino.
"No, no; you don't understand. I
have just begun teaching, in fact. The
recitation in question is by my rats and
Domino got permission to listen to
the recitation. Duroff fetched a lead
chest and set it down in the middle of
the ring, lifted the cover a little, and
then began chirping, trilling and whist
ling on a little lead flute. A mouse
stuck its head through the crack under
the cover, tumbled out, and trotted
gaily over to 1)uroff's feet. Another
mouse followed, and then a big rat
plunged out into the ring. It marched
gravely up to Duroff and scrambled
round the bottoms of his trousers.
More rats and mice 'followed till some
thirty were scratching and squealingat
I)nroff's feet. T'he clown stepped a
few yards backward and his little flock
followed, lie fed them cake and re
treated again. They followed and he
rewarded them as before. Thus he led
them round the ring several times.
When three or four of them fell be
hind the procession to play or fight, he
attracted their attention by tossing
sand at them. Finally he invited them
to come up, and in an instantthey were
on his shoulders, in his coat pockets,
and racing up and down the back of
his head. lie caught three rats by the
tail, swung them round, and then let
them shoot off into space. The instant
they struck they were up again. They
ran back to l)uroff, climbed to his
shoulder.i, and got the same treatment
again. After an hour of this the flute
was laid aside and the rats and mice
were packed away for the day.
Duroff was the first man to train a pig
to grunt accompaniments to songs,
(lance round a ring, and waltz to orders.
lie had then also taught a rooster to
crow at command, and had instructed
successfully a goose in the business of
fetching and carrying. Domino, after
discussing these triumphs of training,
asked Duroff whether or not he ever
tired of his new occupation and wished
to return to instructing boys, as he had
once done in the Russian high school.
Duroff did not catch Domino's exact
words, an(d answered:
"Instruct children? Instruct ani
mals? These are two processes which
can hardly be compared. The difficul
ties vary so-there is no comparison."
"You misunderstand me," explained
Domino. "I acknowledge that your
work now is much more difficult-"
"More difficult? More difficult?"
shouted Duroff. "You must be crazy.
Why, it is easier, indescribably easier.
I would rather teach ten pigs than a
single child. I would rather teach five
geese than a boy. A pig or a goose
never forgets, is never impudent, is
never noisy. But a child! With it you
never know where or how to begin, and
when you stop-bumps!-all forgot.

Some horse car conductors in this
city have got the art of annoying the
patrons of the road down to a very
fine point These men always enjoy
seeing a person running after a car,
and they admire sprint-running so
much that they never do anything to
interfere with it. As soon as the
breathless runner jumps on the rear
platform the conductor invariably pulls
the bell to signal the driver to go
ahead. Inasmuch as the driver is go
ing ahead as fast as he can all the
while, the utility of this signal is one
of the mysteries of horse car riding in
this city. A young man who made a
hundred-yard dash to get on a Fourth
avenue car the other night watched
the conductor with his hand on the bell
rope all the while he was running.
The conductor also watched the run
ner, and as soon as he had overtaken
the ear pulled the bell as usual
"What's the use of pulling that bell
now?" asked the breathless person.
"Why didn't you pull it when you saw
me running?" "Well," said the con
ductor, "I didn't see that there was any
use of my stopping the car when I
knew you could run fast enough to
catch it" HIis excuse was overpower
ing.-N. Y. Times.

A pretty and inexpensive costume is
of heliotrope wool dotted with white
and made with darker silk sleeves, col

narrow silver braid. The hem on the
plain bell skirt is turned up on the out
side, faced with silk and covered with
seven rows of the braid. Another
simple dress is of white dotted Swiss
muslin, tigured all over with pale violet
flowers and made with violet silk
sleeves, vest and very narrow silk frills
on the skirt hem. The dotted muslin
was very wide, of excellent quality, but
it costs only sixty-five cents a yard.

FARMER AND PLANTERi
ARE WE SLAVES? n
A Pertinent Query Put by a Well-Known e
It makes a reflecting man sick at
heart to contemplate the present con
dition of the great mass of southern
farmers. There is a trades paper pub- c
lished in the interest of house carpen
ters which has for its motto these ap
propriate words: "The men who build 1
palaces should not live in hovels!"
What more appropriate sentiment
could be applied to the great army of
producers of the necessaries of life than
this: "Those who feed the world
should not themselves live on husks!"
Yet, how nearly is this the condition
of a large portion of the agricultural
masses. They toil unceasingly from t
early dawn to sundown or after; yet
their families have not as many com
forts-to say nothing of luxuries-as
other laboring people. Whatever deli
cacies the farm may produce are sent to
market, and the refuse or unsalable 1
only are kept for home consumption. i
All the best peaches are sent to town.
Likewise all the eggs, butter and poul
try the overworked housewife may be
able to accumulate, while she and her
family must content themselves with
bacon. corn-bread and what few vege
tables the usually overcropped farmer
may be able to raise.
No wonder we hear murmurings of
:liscontent and bitter complaints from
our rural population. No wonder boys
leave the farms in disgust and seek oc
cupation in the crowded cities. No
wonder the girls express contempt for
farm life and reject the rustic beaux.
They all see the hardships the farming
people undergo and the inadequate pay
most of them get.
This stringent condition of agricul
ture has caused a general outcry
against our law-makers and our gov
ernment. In their desperation farmers
have been led into many chimerical
and impractical ideas. They demand
instant relief through legislative chan
nels, and bitterly denounce our politi
cal leaders as "subsidized demagogues!"
In their wild outcry for relief they
often let their impulses get the better
of their judgment, and thus are apt to
become the prey of a set of political
schemers, who, to say the least, are no
improvement on those upon whom they
now hurl their anathemas.
That there has been much unjust
class legislation, no fair-minded man
will deny; but that counter class legis
lation will permanently improve the
farmer's condition, no impartial man is
prepared to admit. "Two wrongs
never did make one right," and never
will. There are some things that leg
islation can relieve in part, but the im
provement in the condition of southern
agriculture is mainly a matter which
farmers themselves must work out.
With an abundance of food stuffs for
home use (which should be every farm
er's first care), the farmer can easily
raise enough cotton to supply his other
Mr. R. II. Harris, of North Carolina,
very pertinently says: "If the farmers
of the south would plant half the land
they now do in cotton, and manure and
cultivate it better, plant more 'grain
and grass,' and keep more stock, they
would soon be independent and the
richest agricultural people in the world."
This is the whole matter in a nutshell;
the southern farmers are slaves to
"King Cotton." They should plant cot
ton-most of them should-but it should
be a secondary and not a primary crop;
secondary to corn, oats, hay and hogs!
It is not right that the farmer should
labor so hard for such small pay. Sure
ly no laborers in the world's great
vineyurd are more deserving of
reward. No member of society is
more important to the general
welfare than the farmer. Instead
of being a slave and a menial, he. is in
truth the very lord of the soil, and
whenever the inequalities of society
are properly adjusted he will rank as
such. To gain his proper position of
pre-eminence, however, must largely
be the result of his own labor.
The gods help those who help them
selves, and the farmer must rise from
his present position of unjust servility
to at least an equality in the share of
the good things of earth by first adopt
ing rational means for its own improve
ment. The same fundamental business
principles that govern other men and
other occupations apply to agriculture
as well. and it is by a strict adherence
to these principles that the farmer must
mainly expect relief.-Dick Naylor, in
Home and Farm.
WASTE ON THE FARM.
- Prolite Source of D)ebt and Mortgages
We would like to indulge in a little
plain talk with farmers upon the above
subject. Riding through the country
on the cars or in a carriage, every
thoughtful, observing man must be im
pressed by the fact that a considerable
proportion of the land in sight is riun
ning to waste, producing much less
than its capacity. We will see large
tracts of wvet land, swamps or swales,
producing but little else than coarse,
wild weeds neither palatable nor
nutritious. The land is making little or
no return for the capital invested in it
or the taxes paid upcn it. It is hut a
drag, a dead weight upon the remain
der of the farm, and its loss must be
made up from the profits of the land
under good cultivation.
Then the observing will iee that pas
ture fields are not yielding as much
feed as they ought to, because:the seed
ing is thin, run out, as the saying is, or
perhaps killed out in spots by water or
freezing. How many old pasture
fields on average farms are yielding
anything like a good burden of tame
grass. Whatever it may fall short of
its maximum capacity under good man
agement, is lost, waste. No farmer can
afford such waste. No manufacturer
or merchant could remain solvent a
year who permitted such waste.
Then we see that meadows ore often
but little better. There may be spots
or stripes of rank, luxuriant
grass vhich would yield from
two tc two and a half tons
of hay to the acre, but the average
of the field would be so reduced by the
thin and bare spots that the hay would
not pay legal interest on the invest
IBut, observe the grain fields; those
fields upon which labor has been ex
pended in cultivation. How seldom
you see an even growth all over the
field. There may be portions where the
luxuriance of the grain is truly gratify
ing, impressing us with the munificent
liberality of nature, but how often on
other portions the stand of grain is thin
and the growth short and weak. The
fertility over the field is not uniform,
an4 water ha se.tld i$n low spots ad
1 killed out the plants oir dckted their
development. Proper tinderdrains id
such places would convey off the watei
and ptievent the loss of plants.
But there is another great waste,
everywhere apparent even upon the E
best cultivated farms, namely, the
waste from the growth of noxious
~reeds. These rob the useful plants of
necessary water and food, crowd them a
out of their places, overshadow, c
smother, suppress them. They are em C
phatically robbers, and should be out- s
1 lawed, ostraciaed, suppressed, extermi- t
nated, annihilated. Why, the waste
upon the farm caused by robber weeds
is enough to account for all this depress
1 sion in agriculture of which we hear so
much. Why, it is enough to account
for all this increase of farm mortgages
of which we read so mu.h and which =
i artful politicians are so ready to at
tribute to the measures of their ad
t versaries. No other business in the
country could endure such a waste; it
s would bankrupt all engaged in it.
Let us for a moment consider the
names of some of the most aggressive,
e most impudent of these robbers. There
is quack, thistles of several species,
notably Canada, dock of species, plan
tain of two kinds-narrow-leaved the
e worse-daisy of species, Ox-eyed the
r worst at present, charlock or wildf
1 mustard, wild carrot and numerous
others. Is it surprising that after all
r these robbers have had their chances at
the plant-food and moisture, the plants
from which the farmer expects to reap
n his profit should fare so poorly?
Now, will farmers consider this prob.
lem: Could you by proper cultivation
0 bring up the yield of every square rod
r and square foot of your fields to that
of the best square rod or square
g foot, how much larger would be
y the acreage yield of your crops?
After you have given that problem
l sufficient consideration, take this: If
y you should bring up the yield of the
' best square rod of every field to its
,s highest possible capacity and the yield
LI of every other rod equally, how would
d your yields of crops then compare with
- your present yields?
The truth is, and may as well be ac
knowledged, the farmers of this coun
Y try possess too much land. They are
;r everywhere applying the fertilizers, the
to cultivation, the working capital required
al for the cultivation of one acre to two,
10 three, four acres. They are wasting
ly their capital and their energies on too
much land. In the new era of agricul
st ture, soon to dawn, our farmers, taught
ta by sad experience, are going to concen
s- trate their efforts.-Southern Farm.
