RENOVATING OLD PB AB TREES,
The ooppor sulphate solution used
for killing th? varions fungi on our

or lichens from growing,bnt the rou0'h
bark and lichens on the trunk caa do
no harm. Botter spend the time in a

PAINTING TO REPEL BORERS.
Insects are so largely guided by the
sense of smell that anything which
disguises the odor of their favorite
food or places for depositing eggs is
likely to serve as protection by throw
ing them off the traek. Fainting with
white paiat in which a .little oarbolio
acid has been used to mix the paint has
been found an effectual preventive of
the attacks of the peach-tree borer.
The trunk should be paiuted to a
height of two feet or more, and the
earth should be scraped away so as to
paint sevaral inches beneath the sur
face. This earth should bo replaced
after the paint has driel The odor
of carbolic acid in paint remains a long
time, and once painting each year will
probably be sufficient protection. It
is possible, however, that the borer
finding the peach trunk disguised near
tho ground may take to laying its eggs
higher np. It may be even neoessary
to paint the trunk in that case ac; far
as where the limbs branch out. -Boe
BULK IN HOG FEEDING.
Nearly forty yearn' experience in
handling hogs teaehes me, writes A.
Gk Chase, of Millwood, that for best

A clover-raised pig up to ten or
twelve months will in the succeeding
weeks of the fattening process make
from one-third to one-half more
pounds of gain than the pig that has
been raised strictly upon corn. This
is Mr. Harris's idea for saying "tbat
three bnshels of corn and four bush
els of potatoes (cooked) will make more
pounds of pork than four bushels of
Hence if one has not the clover it
will pay to feed the growing pigj a
ration of cooked potatoes or a bulky
slop of bran and shorts, or in fact
anything that from its bulk tends to
increase the capaoity of the stomach.
This idea cannot be too strongly urged
upon onr western feeders. -New York
Why do we bear so little about the
raising of popcorn, asks professor J.
R. Moore. How many farmers' boys
and girls, yes and grown peoplo too,
I wonder, know there is money in it!
For several years past I have kept an
accurate account of everything raised
and sold from our garden, and know
jost what articles bring in the most
money. Wo plant golden popcorn
and find it prolific, while the ears and
kernels are extra large. The corn when
popped is a beautiful, delicious cream
color. The shelled corn sells at four
cents per pound here, which is at tho
rate of $2.40 per bushel. But we do
not prefer selling ?? in that
way. A pouud of the shelled
popcorn nicely popped makes nine
quarts of popped corn, and a bushel
consequently would make 510 quarts.
We use Mrs. Borer's recipe-dressing
tho freshly popped corn with a little
melted butter, stirring the corn while
pouring it on, and then dusting light
ly with a little line salt (Jnst try
some and be convinced that it is de
licious!) We Bell the corn prepared
thus, direct to cousuiners at five cents
per quart, at a curbstone market in
our nearest town. D.>es not $27 pay
well for the labor aud cost of raising,
preparing and selling a bushel of pop
corn? My books prove in what order
farm products are profitable with us,
and I knowingly say, plant popcorn
for profit.-Practical farmer.

as possible after making. Small prints
are best, both for family and hotel

ABOUT WOMEN'S WAISTS,
Tho question of tho proper size of
women's waists is being agitated with
some heat in the London society jour

called tho "16-inchere," who insist
that no female figure can be beautiful
if tho waist is larger in girth than 16
inches. The other party comprises
tho "18-inchers." who hold out for an
additional two inches in the length of
Tho discussion was announced by
tho statement carelessly made - by a
man of prominence that in thees days
of athletics and bicycles, that is no
such thing as a small waist. It is not

standing and agree to split the differ
ence and compromise at seventeen
Meanwhile, it is asserted by sculpt
ors and artists that a woman's waist
should be proportionate to her other
The discussion will probably end in
nothing of good for the female anat
omy. A vain woman will do almost
anything rather thau wear any
but the smallest possible waist And
the larger a woman is, if she be vain,,
the more prominent will be her effort

who have had a college training make
the best homes and take the best care

opinion she relates the following Btory :
"I think the happiness of married
life depends to a great extent upon the
education of tho woman. An inter
esting experience came to me at one
time because of my belief in that theo
ry. It was when I was a professor at
Vassar college. I had made, I think,
an after-dinner speech in favor of the
highest education for women. Not
long after, I met the superintendent
of pnblio schools of a neighboring
town, and he bogan a conversation
upon women's education.
"I do not believe in so much study
for women," he said. "Ido not want
my wife to commenoo to talk about
books when I come home all tired
"No," I answered, "but you want
your wifo to understand enough about
books to be able to talk to you abont
other things. For tho first 20 years
after she is married, a woman is
usually confined olosely at home. She'
has her house and her children to care
for. If she has not a good stock of
knowledge on hand she has so little
time for self development tbat her
mind gradually grows smaller and
smaller. In the meantime, during
that twenty years, the husband is out
in the business world, mixing with all
sorts of people and getting the best
education of his life."
That man confessed to me that his
own domestic life was very much what
I had described, and that his wife, at
the end of the day, had nothing to
talk to him about but her domestio

HOW TO TREAT LETTUC?
When lettuce comes from the mar
ket immediately cut off the roots far
enough to loosen the larger leaves.
Wash it all thoroughly, spread out an
old napkin, or better still a square of
cheesecloth, and place the clean, wet
lettuce leaves, as though they were all
together like a peddler's pack and
place it on the ice. When time for
serving arrives, though it be not for
two or threo days, the lettuce will be
clean, crisp and perfectly dry. This
is the very best way to prepare it,and
does away with drying each leaf-a
process sure to bruise the tender
leaves. Celery should be treated the
same way. Cut off the big tops, pre
pare it for the table piece by piece,
wrup it in a wet cloth and keep on the
icc. At meal time tLore is nothing to
do but put on the celery dish what is
needed and it will be clean, dry and
crisp.- New York Mercury.
AK IDEAL KITCHEN".
The ceiling had been painted be
fore the drying of the plaster so that
it could always be scrubbed when
smoke and steam and flies had discol
ored it. Its tint was the very last and
palest and coolest shade of blue.
The walls were wainscoted with hard
wood for a height of some six feet
from the floor, so that all sp 'ter of
grease could be washed off at once.
The samo compatible end would have
been attained,however, had the wains
coting been of varnished pine. Above
the wainscoting the wall space wes
covered with a yellow draped paper of
tho kind that receives varnish, and
that, owing to the coating of varnish,
can he washed. The paper costs fif
teen cents a roll. This kitchen was a
double room, the range being in the
outer room and a pipo from it running
through the inner room to the chim
ney, which did not ovorheat that
room in summer and made it comfort
able in winter. In this inner room
was the ironing table and the marble
slab for pastry-making.
In both kitchens was a white porce
lain sink, open beneath with rows ol
hooks for pots and pans and bright
copper articles ; there wa3 no possi
bility of hiding places under these
siuks for uncleaned utensils or for oily
rags or for filth of any sort On a
shelf over the sink of the inner
kitchen stood the lamps, and in this
room they were cleaned and trimmed
and filled. The corresponding sink of
the outer kitchen was used for dishwash
ing and general kitchenwork. Over
this sink hung a double row of skil
lets and stewpans, the outside a dark
lapis lazuli, the inside pure white por
celain. In the adjoining pantry were
plaoes for the flour and grains, for the
bread and cake and pies; a refrigera
tor for oold meats and one for milk
and butter. In the kitchens them
selves were cupboards for the kitchen
""dishes amTfor the ironiufc^^enj^ls, \
In the outer kitchen were a sofa
and some rocking chairs, seldom used
till after dark, when the varnished
roller shades were drawn down ; al so
a swinging lamp over the rango and
another above the table where tho

Sex and Color Blindness.
Statistics have been accumulated
which reveal that in respect to color
blindness there is a remarkable differ
ence between the two sexes. About
8} per cent, of men are color blind to
a marked extent, while not more than
four-tenths of 1 per cent, of women
are thus afflicted. This difference in
oolor perception will strike most men
who have been sent by their wives
upon shopping embassies to match
ribbons as understated, if anything.
