to destroy or frustrate these pesls. The

It's hard to tell which is the more ob

South African liides are what wo call a
dry cure. They are rendered very dry by
lung exposure to the ban before shipping.
In that condition they resist the attack of
Insects very well. Dut the most success
ful method, and that most widely used, is
in dipping the hide in a solution of arsenic
before drying. This solution is both a
preservative and an insecticide. Tanners
have good reason to prefer this style of
cure. Hides so treated will weigh fully

to 15 vcr cent, in weight."
" here do you get the best hides?"
"The only good hides come from the
tempe.-atc zone or from regions sufficiently
elevated to lossess r. similar climate.
Healthy cattle there have thick, natural
hair and skins of good grain. But in the
hot countries the hair is very thin, and
the grain of leather made from such liides
Is coarse and poor. On the other hand, in
the cold mrions, the hair lccomes very
tine, and so thick as to make n kind of
fur, which also destroys the grain of tho
leather In the temperate zones the win
ter hides are better than those taken in
the summer. The grain of the leather Is
then at its best."
Leaving Frankfort street awl the region

Two hides were Urougi. ; the one im

Last week, at a suburlum railway station
near Boston, an elderly gentleman, about to
get on to the train, was seen to kick under
tho wheels a banana skin lying on the plat
form, nnd to do it with a manifestation of
such positive ferocity as to mako the bystand
ers look on with amazsent that tiiuo and
the long experience ot life should liava done
so littlo to calm the violence of on explosive
temper. Not content, however, with such
physical exhibition of feeling, the irate gen
tleman then addressed himself to the con
ductor in the following language: "If your
corporation would only hang to the nearest
hunpost the first roan, woman or child that
flings a banana skin on a railroad platform,
tlie wbolo country would rUo up and acquit
The sentiment seemed a little extreme: but,
st ran go to say, it was no sooner uttered than
another pawuger broko out: "Yes, that's
the way to talk; ona of thoso skins cost my a
broken thigh and four months in bod."
Whereupon the old gentleman and tho wit
ness so suddenly raised up in illustration of
the truth of his doctrine shook hands and be
came fast friends. Indeed, in this prosaic
world it is not often that the blood of the
martyrs becomes so immediately and visibly
the seed of tho church. For it was jierfectly

TREATMENT OF PRISONERS.
Interesting Ihiperlraent In California's
fctnte rrl.on r.Mxl for Convict.
Tlie state of California Is trying an In
teresting experiment in tho treatment of
prisoners with a view of securing their
reformation. It lias established the l-'ol-jom
state prison among tho hills near the
ncau or the American river. Tho scenery
Is fine, the air pure, and the water excel
lent. The convicts nre chiefly employed
in quarrying and dressing granite. Tha
uuiidmg docs not essentially differ from
prisou structures iu most of the northern
states. It is roomy, safe and substantial.
It lias the customary cells, baths, mid ar
rangements for securing ventilation. The
Inmates Imve their liair cropped aud wear
the usual distinctive prison garb, which
Insures their arrest If they make an escape.
It Is lu tho matter of supplying food
that this prison differs from others. Th
convicts, when they first arrive, as wei
as those who show little Inclination t
work or a disposition to be vicious, an
supplied with rather poor fare, coniistiiv:
largely of boiled beans, salt meat, cabbage,
mush, common bread and coffee served
without milk. If not within sight of the
table where this coarse fare U served,
there Is within smell of Itnnotheron whicV
fresh beef and mutton, various kinds I,
vegetables, rice, and on Sundays cak
sirup anil tea, are placed. Tho convi:
learns Hint he can sit nt this table and en
joy the food thereon if he worki diligent!,
and faithfully, conducts himself propcrb
and gives little trouble to the warden am.

who sit at this table am allowetl consider

living, and arc generally willing to he a:
considerable pains to secure It. Tho in
mates of this penitentiary ordinarily adop
such a course an cnnbles them to sit at the
better table within a few months of tliei:
entrance. When taking their first break
fast at It they jierceive the odor of bee'
steak, mutton chops, hot rolls, nnd fin
coffee that proceeds from an adjoinhn.
room. They learn that there are roosi
beef and mutton, salads, and pudding
there for dinner, while for supper then
arc steaks, chops, fried potatoes, tea. and
several kinds of fruit. The price of ad
mission to thirf table is strict attention U
business, respect for all rules nail regula
tions, ami the constant observance of pro
priety. The food comes high, but most ol
the convicts are anxious to obtain it, one"
many of them do. Chicago Times.

of Ids questions.

act ot March 3, 1ST7, entitled "An Act
to nrovidb for the sale ot desert landj
in certain States aud Territories," pro-
viues lor tue reclamation oi sucn lanas
by "conducting water unon the same.'
The second section provides "that all
lauds exclusive of timber lauds and
mineral lunds which will t.ot, without
artificial irugatii.ii, produce ome agri
cultural orop. shall be ueenu-d desert
lnudi witbiu the meaning of tuis act,"
nnd the third lection provides that "tho
termiuatiouof whnt may hi consider
ed desert lud shall be subject to the
deoiMou ami regulation ot the Com
missioner of tbo Uenerul Lund Office."
It is therefore prescribed as follows
1st L'inds borJeriug upon streams.
luces or other natural bodies of water,
or through or upou which there is any
iver, stream, arroyo, lake, pond, body
ot water, or living spriug, aro not sub-
ect to entry under the desert land law
until the clearest proof ot their desert
character is furnished.
2d, Lauds which produce native
grasses sufficient in quantity, it unfed by
grazing animals, to make an ordinary
crop of hay in usual seasons, are not
3d. Lands which will produce an ag
ricultural crop or any kind, in amount
to make the cultivation reasonably re
munerative, are not desert.
4tb. Lands containing pnffioient
to produce a natural growth of trees,
arc not to bo olassed as desert lands.
1. The amount ot land which may be
entered by any person under tho desert
Iind act cannot exceed one section, or
six hundred and forty acres, which must
be in compact form, aud no person can
muko more than one entry.
2. Desert land entries ere not assign
able, and the transfer of such entries
whether by deed, co&traot, cr agreement,
vitiates the entry. An entry made in
tho interest or for the benefit ot any
other parson, firm or corporation, or
with iiiteut that the title shall be con
veyed to any other person, firm or cor
poration, is illegal.
3. Tho price at whioh lands may be
entered under the desert land aot is tbe
nine as under the preemption law, viz:
Singlo minimum lands at SL25 per acre,
and double minimum lands at 82.50 per
oore. (Section 2357, U. S. ltev. Stat.)
4, A party desiring to avail himself
ot tho privileges ot tho desert land act
must file with the Register and Receiv
er ot the proper district land office a
declaration, undor oath, setting forth
that the applicant is a citizen ot the
United States or that be has declared
his intention to become such. In the
latter case a duly certified copy of his
declaration of intention to become a
citizen must bo presented ana filed.
It must also bo set up that the applicant
has not previously exercised the right ot
entry under the provisions ot this act.
nnd that he intends to reolaim the tract
of land opplied for by conducting water
thereon within three years from date ot
his declaration. The declaration must
also contain the description of the land
applied for, by legal 6ub division if sur
veyed, or if uusnrveyed ns nearly as pos
sible without n survey, by giving with
as much clearness nnd precision 03 pos
sible the locality ot the tract with refer
ence to the already established linea ot
survey, or to known aud conspicuous
land marks, so oa to admit of its being
readily identified when tho lines ot sur
vey come to be extended.
5. Your attention is called to the
terms ot this deolaration as provided by
existing regulations (Form -1-274), which
nre such as require a personal knowl
edge by the entryman ot lands intended
to be entered. Tie required affidavit
cannot bo made by an agent nor upon
information and belief and you will
hereafter reject all applications in which
it does not appear that the entryman
made tbe averments contained in the
sworn declaration upon his own knowl
edge derived from a personal examin
ation ot tile lands. The blank in the
declaration, to-wit: "that I became ac
quainted with said land by ," must
be filled iu with a full statement ot the
facts of his acquaintance with tbe land
and bow he knows its character as al
leged. Said declaration must be cor
roborated by the affidtvits of two reput
able witnesses who are acquainted with
the laud and with the applicant, and
who must clearly state their acquaint
ance with tho premises, and the facts as
to tbe condition and situation ot tbe
land upon which they base their judg
ment (Form 4-074).
6. ADnlicanta and witnesses must in
all esses state their places ot actual res
idence, thoir business or occupations,
and their post-office addresses. It is
not sufficient to name the county ana
State or Territory where a party lives.
lint the town or oity must bo named.
nnd if a residence is in a city the street
and number mnst be given.
7 The declaration nnd corroborating
affidavits maybe made before either the
Register or Reoeiver ot tbe land district
which tho lands are suuaiea, or co
lore the jndge or clerk of a court of
record of the county in which the lands
nre situated, and it tho lands are in on
unorganized connty, then tho affidavit
mar be made in an adjioent county.
The depositions ot applicant and wit
