To be "bom with a silver spoon in his month "
is a saying applied toono who is bora to luxury j
nnd wealth. Were wo to invent a phrase (o
desigunte a person particularly noted for fine ,
tabic manners. v.'c should say he was born with ;
a silver fork in ln"5 hand. Certainly, very few
are born to know how (o handle a fork properly. ,
To those who have not practiced from t he cradle -,
it is almost as difficult .13 to learn the use of
the Chinese chou-sticks.
2dot persons learning the use of the fork
feel the need of pushing their food on it with
the leit hand while they scoop with the fork in
their rihl, and having read that it is impolite '
to use a bit of bread for this iurpose, they,
almost unconsciously, push their food with
their fingers. It takes great watchfulness
to keep free of this habit, which once formed,
is almost impossible to break. The trouble is
thoso accustomed to the use of the fork will
try to follow the custom when in company,
while at their own tables they will ndhero
to the knife. It would be much better if '
they would practice with the. fori: at their own
rabies, as company manners are poor things at i
best, and cannot bo put on like a clean shirt. ,

use, and is used only for cutting meats, paring
fruit, and iu the picparalion of certain salads. !
celery, radishes, cresses, and all these things are ;
of course eaten with tho lingers. Bread and I
cliecso arc broken into bits before being carried
to the mouth. Never spread a whole slice of J
bread at once and then bite from it as you cat. t
Dried meats and fish are eaten with the fingers: J
so are olives, cucumbers, pickles and most kinds
of cake. For soft layer and cream cakes a fork .
is always used. Peas and beans should be eaten
with a fork only : so with potatoes, fish, pustry j
and all kinds of sauce taken on your plate, j
.Never take a spoon to sup up gravies or other
liquids on your plate. Berries and preserves
are of course cairn with a spoon. j
Keep your fingers as free from food as possi- :
ble while eating, and never suck them clean or I
daub your napkin with them. If no finger
bowl is on the table you will feel the need of j
greater care lit theso important matters.

Owing to tho immenso number of wild pig
eons in this country, few, if any, have thought
of keeping them to any extent for the market.
That this can be made profitablo in large cities
there is little doubt, as tho common pigeon,
like the English sparrow, will forage for itself,
and renuiro little or no feeding, except iu thJ
very depth of Winter.
What is necessary is to fit up a pretty largo
garret or top. of barn with nests all along the
sides, with a convenient outlet suflieiont to let
several pigeons out and in at the sanio time.
Got a dozen pairs to commence willi, keep
them in and feed well till they aro used to tho
place, when they will rot urn to it, bringing
many stragglers, that aro not so comfortably
situated, with them. They will pick up their
food about tho streets, and not cost anything
for keep, while, as they breed all the year round
except whjlo moulting, a regular supply of
squabs for the .market can bo got. Boys-could
manage them, and would enjoy tho business,
and if you had a large enough flock dealers
would como and get thorn regularly.
We remember a case in point in Scotland.
Our father had moved into larger and more
commodious premises for his business. As a
school-boy (living in the country), wc went
there to eat our lunch. In wandering over tho
premises, wo discovered that tho garret had
been fitted up by some former occupant as a
pigeon-house, where they had been accumulat
ing, without anyone to interfere with them, for
years. There wcro at least a hundred pairs,
and any number of young in all stages of
growth. It proved a perfect school-boy's bo
nanza, as we could sell on tho average a dozen
pairs of squabs every fortnight at. fair prices
to the dealers, who came for them. This was
upward of 50 years ago, and as things do not
change much in those old-world towns-, we havo
little doubt that the pigcou-houso is still in full
PEAS FOR STOCK.
Prof. Wm. Brown, of the Ontario Agricultural
College, has repeatedly declared that peas form
a cheaper and belter food than does corn for
stock. Others who havo experience assert
the same; yet very few peas havo ever been
fed in tho United States. Farmers in Northern
Illinois say that peas cannot bo raised profitably
in this climate; but several varieties of garden
peas flourish here. Is it not possible that this
matter has not been sufficiently tested, and
that stock owners aro neglecting a profitablo
food crop when they ignore the pea? Thoso
who havo practical experience in growing peas
and in feeding to stock will confer a favor
upon many farmers if they will give an account
of that experience. Tho points of special in
terest would be the coit of growing tho-peas,
tho value of tho vine and tho seed in feeding,
and tho bast methods known to them for grow
ing and feeding tho crop. Skillful professor,
experimenting with all tho advantages of Slato
appliances; chemists, who havo analyzed tho
pea and its vine, and successful feeders and
breeders in Canada and Great Britain have
found peas a satisfactory crop. They have bden
tried in tho United States, but the fashion has
been to grow corn as almost the only grain crop
for feeding animals. Corn, howover, pro3uces
a large quantity of fat, which has fceen con
sidered the chief object in feeding. But people
are learning that fat is not desirable food in a
climate so temperate as that of this country.
Nutritious, tender, juicy flesh, frco from an
excess of tallow or lard, is wanted for food.
The demand for meats of this description will
grow stronger year by year. It will requiro
and cause a marked change in methods of feed
ing in this country. I'Icsh-forming foods for
slock will be wanted, and fat-producing grain
will bo in less demand than now. Peas are
among thoso flesh-forming foods. Will it not
bo well for tho American farmer io bo pre
pared to supply the requirementsof tho markets
for beef and mutton and pork of 'high quality,
but not fat? Chicago Tribune. ,. .
siu:lti-:rs for cattle.
The loss of cattle tho past Winter from ill
feeding and want of shelter has .ce'n much
larger than usual. One hundred thousand
Jiead, valued at $10 each, would no;equal to
$L00D,000. How much rough but sufllcient
shelter could be provided for this sum ! More
over, the investment- of tho money in shelters
is a permanent one, and needs net to be re
peated yearly, while tho los3 is annual and is
continually repeated. Nevertheless, stock
owners neglect to provide shelter and a small
quantity of feed for their herds, on tho old
fashioned principle, it is to be presumed, that
in the Summer these are not required, and in
tho Winter it cannot be done. And so it goes
on year after year, tho losses and waste being
paid for by the public, who aro charged exorbi
tant prices for meat, to enable the herdsmen to
divide large profits and to stand tho cuormous
That grass is tho most profitable farm crop,
taking one year with another, is uvidcul to
those who have investigated the subject. The
value of a three-acre field of oals ono year was
about $75. The land was seeded to grass, and
the hay takcu from live same field noxt year
was worth as much. The cost of growing and
marketing the oats was more than three times
that of the hay, paying nothing about the value
of tho fertilizers used and allowing that each
crop received an equal benefit from them. But
in order to grow the best grasses wo believe
that land should be worked over and rcseeded
every few years. By plowing moro and culti
vating thoroughly more grass will bo raised, as
well as an abundance of other crops.
Plant your plum trees close about your
house and barn, and plant them close together,
not more than iu or rs lect apart, i on can
thou shake them readily in curcuiio time and
every year gefc a load of fruit. Never allow a
black knot to remain a week after it is discov
ered. If the branch is small, cut it off six
inches below the knot. If tho branch be
large, cut deeply in and shavo it wholly out.
Every crop we grow upon our farms makes
its demand for lime, and if our crops are to be
pioduccd in a luxuriant condition, and if wo
aic to secure abundant produce there must bo
a suflicicnt supply existing intho soil in a con
dition ready for acting as plant food. For this
purpose limo is quite read- after it has served
all its other duties.

Horses should bo bedded, with chaff or

manure in this fine condition will ferment very

nre bedded with coarse straw the fermentation
will bo unoven. Some parts of tho heap will

X. E. B., Offeric'Kan. Under recent law repeal
ing pre-emption, timber claim, desert land, nnd
amending boniest end law 1. How are Indian
trust lauds disposed qf? 2. Aro they subject to
homestead, the sanifi as other public "lands? ln
sircr. 1. You are in tSoiniieh of a hurry. The bill
providing for thorejfehl of the pre-emption, tim
ber culture, nnd defied land acts, and amending the
homestead act, has, not yet become a law, nor is it
sure that it will be passed by Congress. Uy the
terms of the treaty with the Osago Indians, the
Osage trust and diminished reserve lands in Kan
sas can be disposed of jfor cash only, nnd arc not
subject to entry under the homestead law. The
repeal of the pre-cnlption lnw, should the same
ever be accomplished, will afreet the disposal of
the public lands only, not tho Indian lauds, which
are sold under a special act of Congress.
E. P., Simpson's Creek, IP. I'a. In enso nn appli
cant for pension ilics after completing his claim and
before the pension is paid to him, the widow
should notify the Pension Office of the fact and

order. The children, do not share in this accrued
pension if the widow be living.
J. C. J)., I!lnirsvil(c, Pa. I was granted nn in
crease of pension hi an application filed prior to
July, 18S0, and received tho same from date of ap
plication. Am 1 entitled to the increase from date
of my discharge? Answer. You are slightly in
error as to the date of commencement of your in
crease of pension. It did not commence from date
of application, but from the date of the examina
tion by the Examining Surgeon, made after your
application for increase was lilcd. In a claim for
increase based upon it difTerentdisabilityfrom that
for which pension was originally granted, nnd if
such increase claim was filed prior to July, 1SS0,
the pension therefor, if allowed, would date from
discharge; but when claim is based upon an in
crease of the disability for which already pen
sioned, such increase, if granted, can commence,
under the law, only from the date of the .Examin
ing Surgeon's certificate (made under the claim for
increase), which shows you entitled to the increased

person who contracts for, demands, or receives any

imprisonment at hard labor for two years, or both.
Attorneys usually require an amount in advance
for postaget say SI. 'This they are permitted to

C. A. 'J, Hidslcntl,' Kan. A soldier drawing a

W. Jf. 11., Etna, X. Y. If a soldier loses the use of
his arm below tho elbow by reason of gunshot
wound, and the wound necessitates amputation
above the elbow, mflst the Examining Uonrd be
notified; nnd will he draw the same as before tho
amputation, or will hp be dropped from the rolls
entirely? Answer. Iiisueh a case the soldier would
be entitled to pension of $30 per month, tho same
as if the arm was amputated during the war. It
would be proper to submit the facts to the Pension
Oflice. with n written opinion of a surgeon that am
putation is necessary. This would prevent delay
in the subsequent claim for increase on account of
loss of arm, result of gunshot wound, necessitating
amputation since the war. Tho soldier could not
be dropped from the roll in any event. Even if he
should lose the Mime arm by accident, he could con
tinue to (haw at the old rate.

tled to bounty who served one year and wits killed

after deeded it bnckjtd the Government, -without
deriving any profit from the transaction : has ho

soldier nmdc his homestead entry of -10 acres prior
to June 22, 1S71, ho is entitled to an additional entry
of 120 acres. If the original entry was made sub
sequent to said date, he is not entitled to an addi

To the Editoh: I am sorry that a man
claiming to bo a Grand Army comrade should
try to exaggerate things. Comrado Beach came
into the Home with the express purpose (as
far as I know) of staying as Jong as ho could.
And when a comrade or any other than a com
rade of the Grand Army comes here, ho cannot
stay unless he makes an application for admis
sion through the proper channels. Comrado
Beach could have done tho same without any
inconvenience to himself or to tho Home, but
he did not wish to become an inmate. As to
applying to theScrgeant-Major for permission
to stay in the Home, it is something that he
(tho Sergcant-Major) could not grant, as it is
against the niles and regulations of tho Homes
for any one to be allowed to stay unless he is
regularly admitted, or by the permission of the
local manager, Gen. McClellan, or the President,
Gen. Franklin. Comrade Beach's statement
about Gov. Wood flu keeping him waiting two
hours to see him is preposterous, as tho Gov
ernor's oiiico is open to visitors from 10 a. m.
to 11 a. in., timo suflicieut for tho ordinary
trausaction of business, and anybody can see
him that wishes to. Sometimes there is quito
a number wishing to seo him on different
points of business, and as tho number is usually
large, tho men form iu line and take their turn
as it comes.
Tho Homo has been crowded beyond its
actual capacity, there being at the tipio of
Comrado Beach's visit over 1,100 men. A great
many of these men were lying on the floors of
the barracks, in the aisles of tho different build
ings, and any and every place thoy couid be
stowed. The Governor of this Homo is a Graud
Army man in every sense of the word, and
would never see any old soldier (or Grand
Army comrade) want. But ho is as strictly
confined to the rules and regulations governing
tho Homes as is any of the members comprising
tho same. If the comrado was in need, ho
should have made his case known, and then
tho necessary relief would havo been forthcom
ing. Tho comrade also states that I was called
to the otlico (he, might as well have said repri
manded) for taking him in to dinner. He is
misinformed, as I was called to tho oflice for
tho purpose- of giving information. Said in
formation wanted was whether Comrado Beach
wished to apply for admission to tho Home,
and when 1 reported to tho Sergeant-Major
that ho did not, ho (the Sergeant-Major) then
referred mo to tho rules of the Home on admis
sion, and I told tho comrado tho result. I
knew at the time I invited the comrado to din
ner that I had no right, but 1 did not think
the comrado would havo emblazoned the fact
to the world. The comrado still further states
that he received information from amotuberof
the Homo that the authorities of tho Homo
received and on-tortaiued tho Hampton Base
Ball Club. Tho comrade was simply misin
formed. Tho Homo did not entertain the
Hampton Club, becattso there was no such
organization iu existence. Tho Homo has a
ball club of its own, composed of the best men
of tho Homo and several outsiders paid by
order of Board of Managers from amusement
fund and by money taken at the gates on play
ing daysv Bight is right, and it will wrong no
man. Truth is a jewel, and should always bo
used. Tho men of this Home who informed
tho comrade of the different points, as stated,
shot wide of tho mark; and if tl.o comrade has
auy more complaints to make about the Homo
or its Governor, I would respectfully refer him
to either tho Board of Managers or the Con
gressional Committee on Investigation of Vol
unteers' Homes. Fit ask ,Kuu, S. V. Dep't

TTlio Killed A. P. Hill I
To the Editor: In your valnable paper of
Dec. 11, 18S4, 1 notice an article by Corp. Cyrus
Spore, Co. E, 5th Wi3. Tho Corporal, iu giving
au account of tho operations of his command
First Division, Sixth Corps at Petersburg, Va.,
April 2, 1S05. and in. telling about the fighting
at and licarConfcderateFortGregg.says: "An
incident here is worthy of note. Gcu. A. P.
Hill, fresh from Gen. Lee, had ridden down to
fliis fort- with his staff, and given orders to hold
out to tho last moment. Just at this juncture
Hill received a fatal shot from one of oursharp
shootcrs." Now, I was a witness of the fighting
at this fort, and my recollections are, that the
fort was taken by Gen. Gibbon's Division late
on the evening of the 2d, and that Gen. Hill
was killed early in the afternoon of that day,
and one or two miles farther to the right (our
left) of the line.
Harpers History of the Great Rebellion, page
702, Vol. II., gives the manner of Hill's death,
as follows: "Lee, with Hill and Malione. was
within tho city, listening to the noise of battlo
on every side, and endeavoring from it to judge
how the fight was going, and to decide upon
what remained to bo done. The reports grew
momentarily nearer and nearer. 'How is this
General !' .exclaimed Lee to Hill; your men
are giving way!' Hill, buttoning around him
a rough citizen's coat, upon the shoulders of
which were only the stars of a Colonel, and, ac
companied by a single Orderly, rode out to re
connoitcr. In a wooded ravine he came upon
half a dozou soldiers in blue Federal uniforms.
They had penetrated in advance of their com
rades. Hill ordered them to surrender. For
an instant they were confounded by the very
audacityof tho demand. The noxt moment
their answer was given from their rifles, and
Hill fell dead from his horse."
I havo one Confederate authority which,
says: "Gen. Hill was killed by sharpshooters
belonging to Gen. Ord's command." Another
Confederate officer gives substantially the same
account of the affair as given below in Gen. J.
W. Kcifer's official report. The only difference
being, the Confederate oflicer says there were
four soldiers in the party, and that two of them
did surrender, while tho other two fired and
Gen. J. Warren Keifer on that day com
manded the Second Brigade, THird Division,
Sixth Corps; tho brigade being made np as
follows: 67th and 136th Pa.; 110th, 122d and
12Gth Ohio; 6th Md. and 9th X. Y. H. A., then
acting as infantry. I quote from Gen.Keifer's
official report of the battle: "A portion of the
122d Ohio and 133th Pa., after crossing the
enemy's fortifications, continued directly for
ward across the Boyd ton plank road to a camp
of tho enemy some distance in the rear of the
fortifications, where they captured a largo num
ber of prisoners. Some of tho troops continued
as far to the northward as the Southside
Bailroad, and destroyed the telegraph and
tore up the rails on tho railroad. Upon
their return Corp. John W. Monk and Private
Daniel Wolford, of Co. F, 133th Pa., became
separated from the other troop3. Two mounted
men, with pistols in their hands, rode up on
them and demanded their surrender, which
was refused. The mounted men told them that
other troops were coining upon them. The
Corporal and private deliberately fired upon
them, the Corporal killing one and the other
escaping. The Corporal and his comrade, fear
ing that others of the enemy wcro at hand,
iotrcated to tho main body of troops. From
tho manner in which it is known that Lieut.
Gen. A. P. Hill was killed, there can be no
-doubt that the Corporal killed him. One of
Gen. Hill's staff officers, who was near him
when he was killed, and locates tho place of
his death where the Corporal related he had
shot an oflicer, before the death of Gen. Hill
was known to him."
From the foregoing facts. I think it is certain
that Gen. Hill was not killed by sharpshooters,
but by soldiers of tho line; also, that he was
killed early in the morning, and not at the
time of the fighting at the " little forts," as de
scribed by Comrade Spore. I think the fort
described by the Corporal as "holding out
tenaciously" was not garrisoned by South
