Considerable diversity of opinion pre
vails as to the proper time and the right
depth to break prairie. In some of the
older States the practice is to break al
most entirely in the month of June, and
thus allow the breaking to lie idle until
the next season, or perhaps back-set it
in the fall. This practice has some
show of reason in most prairie couu
tries, from the fact that it takes ail the
allotted time for the sod to rot sunn
ciently to produce a crop. But here in
Dakota the case is different. The prai
rie sod here breaks about as easily as
the meadow lands in tho Eastern Slates*.
In other prairie States three and four
yoke of cattle are needed to break witlii
while here one good yoke can break
from an acre to an acre and a half a
day. It follows, then, that if the sod is
not so tough, it will take less time to
subdue it. and it is a fact that good
crops of corn, flax and potatoes have
been raised from sod which was turned
the same season. Now while it may be
good practice for a farmer to break in
June if he chooses, still to the majority
it will be more advantageous to begin
breaking as soon as the frost leaves the
ground. Breaking done very late in
the fall is equally as good, and in some
cases better than early spring breaking.
For a majority of farmers in this coun
try early spring has a two-fold advan
tage, from the fact that a good crop
may be raised the first year. The sod \
is not so tenacious but that the grain j
roots can penetrate it and secure an '
abundance of plant food in the sod
and beneath it. Breaking done !
in July or August is almost
worthless unless the grass has been cut '
or burned off before commencing. A
heavy growth of grass turned under
holds the sod upon its edge, and during
the dry season it is literally burned to
a brick, and when such a field is back
set the next spring, or plowed for a
crop, the entire surface is covered with
dry sods grass side up. !
For early breaking, where it is de
sired to raise a crop the first season, '
very shallow plowing in the best, as a
thin sod will become rotted in a shorter
time than a thick one, but care should
taken at the next plowing to set
the plow anjinch or two deeper than the
breaking in order to get an abundance !
of loose soil for the preservation of
Juno breaking should be from three
to four inches in depth, as there is con- '
siderable grass on the sod and it needs
more weight to hold it flat down. j
There is an erroneous opinion among
a certain class of farmers that breaking
need not be very well done, and still
the field will be in as good condition '
after the next plowing as it would be if
more work was expended on the break- '
ing. Nothing can be further from the
truth. Turn the sod bottom side up;
not half way over, leaving folds and
hummocks all over the field to obstruct
the plow at the next plowing. , j
A field in which the sod has been
turned bottom side up and lies down
flat will not cost half the labor at the :
second plowing, the sod will rot quick- '
cr and more moisture will be retained. •
To recapitulate; good crops of corn, '
flax and potatoes can be raised on sod
if the ground is broken early. There- '
fore if you want a crop the first year
commence to break as soon as the frost
leaves, plow shallow, and turn the sod
bottom side up.— Dakota Farmer. }

THE COST OF STOPPING A TRA£N OP
The cost of stopping a train of earn,
cays the Hartford Courant, is being
guessed at by experts in a very inter
esting way. And it is something worth
the inquiry of railroad men, especially
in Connecticut, where, beside the sta
tions, there are so many drawbridges,
at which the safety of the traveling
public demands full stops. Estimates
have ranged from i of a cent up to 82
for stopping an ordinary passenger
train. The small figure represented
only tlie estimated loss of metal by ap
plying the brake to the wheel. Some
of the real considerations that go to
make up the cost of a st jp are the coal
1 named while the train is standing still
and in order to resume the former
speed. This the Pennsylvania railroad
people put at 12 to 15 cents; then there
are the wages of all the persons on the
train, who, while the train slows down
and stops, are paid as if they were run
ning. This is insignificant in the case
of one person, but it amounts to some
thing when the whole train-force is con
sidered ; beside these, there is the wear
of rails. A rail lasts only one-third as
U>ng where trains come to a stop on it
as when merely run over. This is the
result of the action of the brakes.
Then, too, more acccidents occur to en
gines, to wl- ;els and to axles, in coming
to a stop in starting again, than
when runnin right along. The Rail
road Gazette reports a discussion on
tliis subject, in which the conclusion is
reached that the actual cost of stopping
an ordinary train is about 30 to GO
cents. An amusing story is told of a
trial where experts testified that it cost
S2 to stop a train. They established
the fact. Then the counsel on the
other side produced the company's
time-taJble, with a full list of all the
stops, including station, took the total
number of its trains for one year, mul
tiplied the result by $2 —the experts
estimate of cost—and demonstrated that
the stoppages alone had, if the estimate
was right, cost the company three times
as much as the entire amount of its
operating expenses for the year. This
reduction to a solid basis of fact upset
the $2 theory effectually.

BOW TO TRIM A LAMP.
There is such a vast difference in bot
the quantity and quality of light pn
duced by a common coal-oil or kerosei
lamp when properly trimmed and thr.
produced by the same lamp when in.
properly trimmed, that it is surprisin
how any one of ordinary intelligent'
and observation can be satisfied to use
even for a single hour, an imperfectly
trimmed lamp. Yet, strange to say, n
large proportion of the millions of kero
sene lamps that are in nightly use are
not trimmed as they should be. Care
less housekeepers and stupid servants
think "it will do just as well," hi trim
ming a lamp, to break the charred wick
with the fingers, to saw it with a rough
edged knife, or to haggle it with a pair
of dull shears, as it will to clip it
smoothly and evenly with a sharp trim
mer. But people who are fastidious
enough to care for a light they can read,
write, sew or do any kind of work by,
with satisfaction and comfort, know that
such is not the fact
Since kerosene came into use as a
light-producing agent various imple
ments for trimming lamps have been
patented and placed upon the market;
but., after a pretty thorough examina
tion of the most of them, I incline to
the belief that nothing has yet been in
vented for the purpose quite ko con
venient, cheap and effective as a pair of
ordinary, medium-sized scissors. To
do the work properly, however, Hie
scissors must bo sharp, for it is impos
sible to trim a lamp perfectly without a
The belief is quite general that to
prevent a lamp-wick from flaring at tho
corners and breaking the chimney it
must be cut "rounding," to correspond
with tho cap or cover of the burner.
My experience, however, coupled with
close and careful observation, leads mo
to the conclusion that the way to trim a
lamp so as to secure the very best re
sults—to get the most and pleasantest
light with the least breakage of chim
neys, is to cut the wick parallel witb
the top of the tube of the burner.
When ready to trim the lamp remove
the chimney. Raise the cap of the
burner. Turn up the wick; and with a
pair of sharp scissors clip it even witb
the top of the tube. Be careful not to cut
or squeeze the tube with the scissors.
See that no lint or thread remains on
the wick, and that it has not been
pushed out of its perpendicular position
and cut diagonally. Close the cap over
the tube, put the chimney in place, and
the lamp is ready for use. If these di
rections have been strictly followed, it
will, when lighted, yield a broad,
straight-edged flame without a notch or
indentation in it, and furnish a clear,
steady, pleasani light Try it and see.

HOW IT PATS TO TAKE A NMWSPA-]
Some papers are not of much account
as to appearance, but I never took one
that did not pay me, in some way, more
than I paid for it Ono time an old
friend of mine started a lituc pnper
away down in Southwestern Georgia and
sent it to me, and I subscribed just to
encourage him, and after awhile it pub
lished a notice that an administrator had
an order to sell several lots at public
outcry, and one of the lots was in my
county. Sol inquired about the lot,
and wrote to my friend to attend the
sale and run it up to £50. He did so,
and bid me off the lot for $30, and Isold
it, in a month, to a man for $100, and
so I made $68 clear by taking that pa
per. My father told me that when he
was a young man he saw a notice in a
paper that a school teacher was wanted
away off in a distant county, and he
went there and got the situation, and a
little girl was si«nt t-> him, and after a
while she grey.- op mighty sweet and
pretty, and he fell in ! ye with her and
married her—oot ,: be hadn't taken
that paper, what do you reckon would
have become of me ? Wouldn't I have

REMARKABLE FLOW FROM AN OIL
Any one familiar with the heavy oil
developments knows that a goodly part
of the drilling is done on the hill known
as the " Point," near Franklin. It rises
from the bank of the French creek in a
very abrupt manner. Philip Grossman's
brewery is situated at the foot of South
Park street, on the west side of the
creek. His beer vault is on the other
side. It is an immense vault, blasted
out of solid rock, and penetrates into the
hillside nearly 100 feet. In this is
stored large quantities of lager beer.
The casks that hold the beer contain on
an average abont ten barrels each. One'
>ask in the rear end of the vault is used '
as a supply cask. All the others are ]
connected with this one by pipes, md !
the supply cask, being sunken, is al-1
ways kept full of beer. The hill at this!
place is so steep that it cannot be as- j

they decided to call in undoubted au

PROTECTION AGAINST CONTAGIOr.
Precipitated lac sulphur is one of the
most excellent as well as simple and

It is conveniently used by placing &

the lungs) is not only one of the most
common diseases of old age, but the
most fatal—over three-fourths (some
.say nine-tenths) of the aged dying of it.
The main work of the lungs is done
by t\:e air-cells, the tiny laboratories in
which the smaller branches of the air
tubes terminate, as the branches of a
tree terminate in the leaves. Now it is
these that are the seat of pneumonia.
In the^first stage of the disease they
become^—in some one part of the lungs
—filled with a sticky fluid, exuded from
the blood vessels; in the second stage
this fluid becomes solid; in the third it
changes to pus. If the pus is absorbed
—which is seldom the case in the old—
the person may recover, but only after
months of convalescence. If it result
in gangrene the gan
grene may form numerous small ab

In the aged the disease seldom com
mences with well-dtfined symptoms.
In about one-half the cases there ia
comply a chill, or a pan in the side. In
most of the other cases the main symp
tom i> a feeling of exhaustion. If
there is already chronic bronchitis or
astlnp.a, the person may merely feel a
little tiied, and suddenly die.
Though most patients cough, there
is for a time no expectoration. "When it
appears, it is at first scanty, gray and
frothy; then yellow, and at length red
<li-0i and sticky. Patients seldom com
plain of pain or difficulty of breathing.
The more common exciting cause is
cold, especially dry, sharp cold. Nine
tenthfl of all cases occur between No
vember and May. During this period
the aged cannot be too carefully pro
tected from exposure. They should
constantly wear flannel.
About all that can be done for the
patient is to stimulate him with drinks,
nourish him with concentrated fluid
food, aud secure him absolute rest.—
AMPHIBIOUS BOT DIVERS.
In the Singapore harbor and in other
places, we saw the boy divers spoken
of by all travelers in the East, writes a
clergyman to the Troy Times. The
moment we came to anchor our steamer
was surrounded by a swarm of naked
boys paddling about in their tiny canoes,
laughing and shouting to us throw a
copper or a sixpence in the water, prom
ising to catch it before it reached the
bottom. In broken English they said:
"Now, you throw sixpence in water; me
go down; me catch 'em ebery time ; me

silver we shouted, "Ready!" A dozen
eager tongues answered, "Beady!"
Next moment the coin was glittering
in the water ten or fifteen feet beyond
them. In a moment two dozen feet
were in the air, and a dozen black heads
cleaving the water. Every boy disap
peared. For full half a minute, which
seemed half an hour, there was silence;
then, one after another, up came the :
boy-divers, one of them shouting, as he
held up the money, "I've got it, mas

pocket he had (his mouth), he muttered
out: "Now, pop in a nudder one." We
"popped in" another piece, still further
away, and down again plunged the am

HEXICVOLENCE AND GRATITUDE.
Tourgueneff, the well-known Russian
author, has published a volume of short
stories of peasant life in the steppes,
and has interspersed them with delic
ious little fables or parables, all bearing
the mark of his masterly hand. The
following is so exquisite, and withal so
true, that it may be quoted:
"One day, a great Prince determined
to give a fete in his beautiful palace.
All of the virtues were invited, but the
virtues alone, none other.
"There came a great many, 1-irge
ones and small ones. The little ones
were much more courteous and plea-sing
than the large ones, but all of them
seemed very happy, and conversed po
litely with one another.
"But the Prince noticed two beauti
ful ladies, who did not seem to be ac
quainted with e*ch other. He went to
them, then, taking one of them by the
hand, he led her to the other saying:
'Let.me introduce you.'
" 'Benevolence,' said he, indicating
the former; 'Gratitude,'added he, in
dicating the latter.
"The two ladies were indescribably
Burprised. Since the world was the
world, and that was a long time ago, ii
was the first time they had ever met."
The professors of journalism, who
periodically tell us about nev spapc-rs,
have failed to notic^ a comparatively
modern and a very important feature of
the newspaper, namely, the head-lines.
This is a department of the paper which
has stealthily conquered for itself an in
fluence which even newspaper managers
sometimes inadequately recognize. It
often happens that the ingenious artist
in this department is really editing the
paper. He can convey an impression
which the writers of ponderous leaders
are endeavoring to avoid. He can create
a doubt or awaken a suspicion by a
single artfully-chosen word, or sow
broadcast an opinion which it may take
columns of writing to show is unfounded.
Suggestions that are buried in the bodies
of articles may attract no notice; but
the flaming headline takes the eye at
once, and its diagnosis of the matter
which it criticises may be very wide off
the mark without the average reader ap
plying any corrective. The head-line
largely regulate the emphasis that is
given to the report of current events.
Small matters in this nay may be mag
nified, aud mere conjectures invested
with nearly the dignity of established
facts.— Toronto Mail.
