IS AMMONIA LOST DURING FERMENTA
It is commonly supposed that
when vapor passes off rapidly
from the compost heap-when it
"smokes"-that sloss of ammonia
takes plsce. Litmus paper placed
immediately upon tho freshly
stirred compost, in the midst of]
the rising fumes, did not detect

Experiments in the use of

This is probably not true of some

- I? the compost is made for
miscellaneous use, 600 pounds bf
phosphate per tou is used. The
compost has proved during twenty
years of ?practical experience
and experiment the cheapest
manure for the corn and cotton
In making the first experiments
with it in 1869 the materials were
put up in layers, but this practice
has long since been abandoned as
unsatisfactory on account of the
phosphate hardening- into lumps.
COMPOSING THE FURROW.
Some apply the cotton seed- in
the row in which cotton is to be
planted, and sprinkle the phosp
hate over them early in the wa
gon, and covering them with earth,
allow the seed to ferment there.
If the season is favorable in
early, spring this practice / gives
good results -but. : some serious
objections stand against it.
(a).In order that the seed may
j not vegetate they must be applied
before the soil has, been warmed*
sufficiently to supply t he fi m dit ion s
necessary for germination. If
heavy, baking. rains, occur, the
so il where ihe plant is to grow be?
cornea hard. It cannot be rebroken
without;^disturbing the* manure,
and thence there is difficulty in
securing a:m'a?!?w seei bedv
(d) It involves extrtv labor in
distributing the e-ed and phosphate
as they must be distributed
separately. . #_ . .
COTTON SEED M BAL IN" COMP08T.
Since cottonseed meal is cheaper
at twenty dollars per tou.W even
at twenty two dollars per ton, or
than catton seed at twelve, the
meal has been substituted for the
seed in the compost heap with
perfectly satisfactory results. The
following formula was used :
500 lbs. cotton seed meal.
*> 500 to acid phosphate.
1000 " stable manure.
table manure ?B thproughlj
, .. i_Hi-? ::L .vf \,-.*\in?nA ??-iTr'**?;?'
manure. The fermentation of thii
compost^ proceeds much mor?
Tapidly than that in which the
seed are used, and hence must
be closely watched to avoid exces
sive heating. If this occurs, open
vertical' holes with a crowbar and
pour in water, or turn tip heap^
adding water as it is turLed. The
plant food in the meal compost ia
more promptly available than that
in which the seed are used."

"How do people buy pictures?" Colin
Campbell Cooper repeated. "Well, I
suppose the majority of collectors con
sult the advice of a dealer OT. some ar
tist, and yet there are those, not pre
tentious connoisseurs, either, that know
a good thing when they, see it, and.
?vince unusual wisdom in their pur
chases. To some, however, self reliance
in investing on a large scale in paint
ings has proved rather a disastrous ex
periment. The other day a collection
made by a man thirty or forty .years
ago was sold. There was hardly half a
dozen good things in it, simply because
he bought and.be did not. know what he
??Art in this country is gradually wak
ingup., Perhaps the Centennial might
be called the American Renaissance.
We know infinitely more about art than
our grandparents did, and with oppor
tunities increasing from year to year it
is fair to suppose our children will show
a still more marked improvement 1n
taste. Greater facilities for traveling
have done much tobring about a change
in our little world, and the tendency of
our art is rather toward the cosmopoli
tan than provincial.' Naturally, time is
'required to educate the public taste
along artistic lines.
. "I think people will baymore pictures
when they understand painting is not an
accomplishment merely a. pleasure, to.
the eye, but' that it is a part of educa
tion, of civilization. It- will require
time-to realize this. Exhi rations ajte
yisited and the majority like to look at
pictures with an admiration rather
ephemeral. When the picture is out of
?ght the impression is gone. With a
general .diffusion of art paintings will
be bought not solely because they ap
peal to the senses," to personality, but
for "their artistic qualities'; not simply
because the ?subject illustrated is rather
a pretty idea, but because the work is
technically a good art-production."
" Stephen Ferris wdd: "The world is full
of good pictures to be bonght for rea
sonable prices, but unfortunately many
thousands of dollars, many fortunes, are
spent for nonsense,' while good: work re
mains; unsought and .un bong ht. Com
mon sense is happy capital in picture
buying as in any other business. One
can hardly provide a set number bf rule*
to be observed in buying. Many book*,
have been written on military science,
yet the world has seen comparatively
few fine generals. Judgment rules the
world, and in picture buying one person
is more successful than another because
a spirit of superior intelligence dictates
Thomas Eakins would like to have
people buy pictures that please them
and appeal to their taste. "The major
ity are afraid to bhy what they like;
they must have some one else's advice.
Well, if they start with bad art, per
haps before long they will como to the
good. Let people buy what they want."
"I have not thought much about buy
ing pictures," said Mr.Frederick Waugh.
"We artiste are more chiefly concerned
m trying to sell them. It is the privi
lege of the artist to paint pictures which
appeal to people; which they understand
and want to have for their own. But
he should have a high standard, and he
cannot succeed if he lower it to cater tc
.ikeji<:riartaste. -He is fortunate if in
'iVVooK^-^B^m-tai mtv-ma m ig tuff-fry;
~| tTis work may be appreciated by large
1 numbers, but it 4is always certain that
some few will recognize his endeavor
?nd will want to buy it.
! "In the Old World art is accessible to
alL The Luxembourg and the Louvre
are filled permanently with the master
pieces' of all ages, the best that have
been done. There, too, the spirit of
union is strong among artists. They
gather together and talk of everything
pertaining to the art world, consequent
ly they live entirely in a congenial cli
mate" and they grow and develop in an
essentially art atmosphere. Impression
ism? Yes, this is the great word nowa
days. Many have an idea that it is a
synonym for vaguely treated and par
tially unfinished pictures. Impression
ism claims to record facts as observed
by the artist. Sincerity to nature is
its aim. After all, there fe nothing
sd beautiful as truth, and the nearer
we get to it, as we find it in nature, the
better artists we are."
"Many Americans buy pictures," Mr.
F. de B. Richards responded, "because
they have accumulated money, and
pictures are the proper thing to have.
Generally they know very little about
it, and a dealer does the work for them.
If people purchase picture* to flutter
their vanity, let them spend big stuns
and buy high priced pictures. If they
buy for pleasure, let them buy what in
terests them. I remember meeting Ed
win Forrest after a sale. Tve bought a
picture,' said he. 'They told me not to
do it, Jbecause very likely it is not origi
nal But it pleases me, ?md I should
buy it if it were by somebody I never
heard tell of.? A picture pleasing to the
eye is a source of education for the time
being at least Adverse criticism may
lead a man td scrutinize it and study it
more closely than if he had bought one
he did not like half so well"
"I think I should be inclined to buy
what I liked personally," was the opin
ion of Edwin Swift Balch, "not forget
ting that the pictorial qualities should
not be lost sight of in the desire to get a
pleasing subject Good handling, the
proper placing of values and meritorious
color, allied to a sympathetic subject,
will tend to keep our interest in a paint
ing alive."-Philadelphia Times.
