Cobl Water for Kose Slug*.
Rose slugs rtre very troublesome, es
pecially ou sandy soil, where they will
iucrease faster than they can be killed
off. It is not so generally known as
it should be that cold water thrown
with a force pump agaiust rose bushes
will entirely destroy the slugs and do
the roses no harm. Water that is
heated to 130 degrees or 140 degrees
will also kill not only rose slugs but
most kinds of insect pests.
To keep the cabbage worm off the
late cabbage, soak some dry corn cobs
in kerosene for a few days, then place
an old pan in the patch on a box or
other support two or three feet high.
Two or more of these would be better
than one if the patch is large. Just
at dusk drop two or three of the soaked
cobs into the pan and apply the
match; throw on fresh cobs as needed
to keep a bright blaze going for an
hour ur more, and large numbers of
the moths -svhich lay the epgs which
hatch the "worms" which destroy our
crops will be destroyed.-Tho Epito

it is to be regretted, as they invari
ably indicate that the hens are out of
coudition-too fat. A hen in good
laying condition Mill never produce
an egg other than of the normal size
peculiar to* her breed, and if fat she is
entirely unfitted for laying. If a fat
hen is killed she will be found full of"
eggs, so to speak, but they will be
noticed to be of all sizes, and the
poultryman will be amazed over thc
fact she did nut lay, but examination
will show that obstructions of fat were
the cause, and that the hen is then
more profitable dead than when alive.
-The Progressive South.
Water in which soot has been dis
solved has always been a favorite with
florists for manuring plants, and also
at the same time keeping uti'injurious
insects. It has a slight smell of sul
phur, to which doubtless its power to
repel injurious insects is due. We
have often put a little soot in water
and used it on cucumber and melon
plants to keep off the strijied bug. If
done before any eggs are laid it will
repel them. The dark color from the
soot on the leaves holds the heat, and
when it is washed upon the ground it
makes the soil warmer. ?Some am
monia iu tho water makes it much
more effective as a fertilizer. The soot
is pure carbon and has considerable
power to absorb ammonia, which it
will give ont only as the roots of plants
surround the carbon thus charged and
?boori? it. -Dociton Ottliwritog?
Liberal Grans Sending.
There may bc reason for lightly
Beeding of grains which will often
from a single kernel produce two,
three or even more stalks and a pro
portionate increase of yield. But iu
grass seeding this rule does not hold;
each seed can produce but one sta'k.
This, under the most favoring circum
stances, may spread, so as to cover a
wide space. But in grass seeding
everything is at first against thc young
plant. Its seed is small, whiio tho
grain is comparatively largo. Natu
rally the grass plant is conespt.ndiug
ly small and wholly nuable tu com
pete with the more vigorous weeds
which are always ready to smother it.
The only way in weedy ground, as
most long-cultivated soil is, must
therefore be to seed so heavily that
the grass crop must from the first
have the advantage. This is the sea
son for fall seeding. We therefore
advise to seed heavily, and in addition
sow some clover seed in the spring,
which v% ill fill in the vucaut spaces
which thc fall seeding has not occu
pied. It is an old saying that nature
abhors a vacuum. It is never inore
true than when grass or clover and
weeds are growing together. There
is no better way to exclude weeds than
to aeed heavily with grass or clover,
either of which, if seeded so as to
cover the whole ground, is thc best
weed exterminator known.
Land Too Rich for Winter Groin.
It is not at all uncommon to have
land that if sown with Smalt" grain
would produce a heavy growth ol
straw without grain. The straw
growth always kills all clover and
grass seeding sown with it, obliging
the owner of the land to keep it nuder
the plow until its excess of nitro
genous fertility has been used up. In
such case, we should advise sowing
crimson clover as early as possible,
and any kind of grain crop that you
think will make the best protection
for it. This will use up part of the
available fertility, but if the clover is
plowed under for sume hoed crop, as
it should be, this fertility will be just
in time to help a potato crop in the
following July or August. A green
manuring plowed under in spring,
eveu only in winter rye, makes a ? "eat
difference in the yield of potatoes over
land not so fertilized. A growth of
crimson clover, even if it were winter
killed is worth much more than rye
on like soil and conditions. This
cropping of very rich land every sea
sun sowing crimson clover in the fall,
helps free the land of weeds. It also
to some extent exhausts fertility. But
a potato or corn crop usually pays so
much better thau any small grain crop
that you should be glad if you can
cultivate land two or three years in
succession before seeding it. When
you do seed it sow grain rather thinly
and seed heavily with both grass and
clover seed, for which two or three
years'cultivation will be good prepara
Bran for Cows In Bummer.
AH good cows fresh in milk grow
poor in summer, when they have noth
ing but pasture. They also grow
poor on any other like succulent feed.
Corn fodder averages poorer than
grass and clover pasture in available
nutrition for milk making. So even
after corn fodder supplements the
grass feed, the cow is obliged to make
up for the deficiency in feed from the
futs previously stored in her own
body, especially -ou the intestines,
?where they are most available for this
purpose. Everyone who has killed
old cows knows that a very large part
of their fat is on the intestines, show
ing that nature has for years adapted
this method of storing fat as being the
best resource to supply milk when the
food given was insufficient. When
corn begins to ear, some of ' this is
likely to be fed to milch cows. But
corn grain is more likely to fatten
than to increase the milk flow, espe
cially where the first flow has been
lessened by insufficient feeding.
It is not usually so muchr fats as
in nitrogenous nutrition that pastures
fail. Far belter than corn or other
grains for feeding cows at pasture is
wheat bran. There is also less dan
ger of cloying the appetite. Grain is
too hearty and cannot be digested
alone in hot weather. Much more
grain can be eaten if it is mixed with
bran. This is itself quite as good for
increasing milk flow as is bran. But
as oats cost more the bran is usually
preferred where it is only needed for
There is more advantage in feeding
bran to cows in summer than the im
mediate gain from keeping up the
milk flow ut the time. If the cow is
kept to her best in Bummer she will
give more in fall and winter also, pro
vided the summer milk product has
not been allowed to decrease her flesh
and vitality to too great au extent. In
other Avoids, if judicious feeding of
cows while at pasture ia practiced
they will give more and better milk
nil the year, and can be profitably
milked nearer to the time of calving.
This has a very great effect on the
milking character of the calf which
the cow is then bearing. It has al
ways been noted that no deep milking
breed of cows has ever been developed
except where there was warm and
moist weather during most of the
year, causing the production at all
times uf succulent feed. Undoubtedly
the increased use of ensilage in this
country will improve the milking
qualities of dairy stock, or will nt least
prevent it from deteriorating. But
with improved milking capacity must
also be developed tho ability to eat ?
greater amount of nutritious food at
all seasons of the year. The breeder
of good stock, especially for the dairy,
must always bc a good feeder, by
which we mean not only that he muet
give enough, but he must have skill
to select the kinds of feed best adapted
to his pnrposes.
Farm and (?arden Notes.
Because '.he level valley is richer
tba'.i thc hillside it is quite common
for fanners to suppose that there must
bp each year a heavy deposit from the
hillside in the valley below. But if
any one manures a hillside with the
expectation that it will appreciably
fertilize the soil farther down the hill
he will learn his mistake.

The small ridges left by the drill
should remain. They protect the
young plants from the wind and from
heaving in thc winter, for the same
agency that pulls the plants up by the
roots molders the ridges down at the
same time. In dry weather the plants
find more moisture in the valleys than

If a heavy rain occurs about seeding
time, it is an excellent plan for those
who have not sown to go at it soon as
the ground is dry enough to work
well, for it is much better to sow just
after rather than just before a rain.
W7e have seen fields a part of which
were drilled just before and the rest
just after a rain,and have noticed that
the after-seedings made tho better
growth and yield ns a rule.
A good clover sod is a most excel*
lent preparation for wheat, as,indeed,
for most any crop. Even when a crop
of hay is taken off in June nud the
ground plowed as soon as possible
thereafter, the clover Btubble and
roots nre very beneficial in improving '
thc mechanical texture of most soils
and in providing available food for the
wheat plants. Wc never knew sod
ground plowed in July or early August
to bc tolled, harrowed- and drigged
too much for best results.
Did you ever see a cabinetmaker
finish a fine piece of furniture? WThen
thc material comes from the saw it is
simply rough lumber. When planed,
it is reasonably smooth, but far from
being finished; much sandpapering,
rubbing and j olishing must follow be
fore the job is complete. The more
work he puts on, the better price he
will receive for the article. So with
the wheat field; the plow leaves the
ground rough, and there must follow
much planing, rubbing and polishing.
The better finish.we put ou, the more
profit in the crop.
Crude and careless methods crop
out iv. the application of manure as
elsewhere. To secure the best returns
from farm manures they must be fined
and distributed evenly. The niauure
spreader does both to perfection,
though if a man is careful and doesn't
get in top much of a hurry, he can do
a very good job with a fork. Unload
ing in heaps may be out of date, but
we believe a better job spreading can
be done fruin heap than from wagon.
But thc heaps must be Bpread before
rains wash the soluble portions into
thc ground where the heaps lay.
A Peculiar Affliction.
Carpenter Middaugh of Ottowa,
Kan., is suffering under a peculiar
affliction. He struck his head on the
sharp corner of a cupboard in his
house seven months ago, but beyond
a slight wound over the eyebrow he
experienced no immediate inconven
ience because of the mishap, and he
paid little attention to it. On a hunt
ing expedition he was about to make a
shot, when he found that with his left
eye closed he was blind. Now the
other eye has been affected synrpaihet*
ically. -New York Sun.

VALUE OF COLD STOEAGE.
A VISIT TO THE FROZEN- WARE
HOUSES IS INTERESTING.
Tho Walls Are of Extraordinary Thick
ness-By Means of Piped Chemicals the
Temperature Is Kept Below Zero
Eatables Kept for Tears.
The almost perfect system to which
cold storage has been brought in this
. city and its suburbs is known only in
a general way to the average citizen.
It will doubtlessly cause surprise to
persons who are not familiar with the
facts to learn that rt quail they eat for
breakfast has been dead in some cases
for one or two years, and that quail
and other game birds, fish and meat
are frequently frozen for a year or
more and then sold in as good a con
dition as they were the day they were
put into the great ice-house.
Tho business has grown to such di
mensions that it is estimated roughly
that market men, shippers and others
interested in the trade hav? $15)000/
000 invested in the b?sin?ssj exclusive
of the cost of the buildings; Darge
structures? Usually located adjacent to
the markets or the railroad depotsj
are in demand for cold storage ware1
houses, and there rtr? several ?? upper
West street, more near Washington
market, others located near the Fulton
market aud under the arches of the
Brooklyn bridge, that seem particular
ly well adapted for the purpose. Ex
cept in the case of fruit and such vege
tables as are destroyed by freezing, it
is said to be seldom that provisions
are sold to the consumer upon arrival
in this city. Prices, of course, have
much to do with the sales, and when
there is an overstock of chickens,
eggs, beef, fish, meat or similar coni:
modify, it is packed away in d cold
storage warehouse, where it is held
until prices justify a sale.
As regards game, it was only last
winter that emissaries cf the state
game warden came to this city to find
out why certain restaurants were sell
ing venison, pheasants, quail and
every other sort of game ont of season.
The deputy game wardens had quail
for breakfast in September, when the
law said that they should not be killed
until December; venison for dinner,
when deer can only be hunted in Jan
uary, and woodcock and snipe. Then
they made a list of the restaurants
where the game had been obtained and
arrested the proprietors, Thc pro^
prietors gave the names of the mon
from Whom they had bought the game}
and these were found to have obtained
it from the warehousemen. It was
learned that some of the game had
been killed more than a year before
during the regular season. There
were expressions of consciousness and
wonderment on the faces of the game
wardens when they departed for home.
In their reports they said the law had
not been violated.
"We certainly have developed tho
business," said one of the ware
housemen, "to a point that ls un
equalled in any other part of th? world;
Europe has nothing like the cold
warehouse system of this city; Even
royal personages have io ,tilkd their
vegetables, meat, fruit and game in
season. Here wc do not. The cold
warehouse system has been growing
so slowly aud yet surely iii this city
that it would be considered rt hardship
by citizens if they had to do without
it. We have developed a pampered
taste that requires fruit at Christmas,
commodities that in the 'good old
times' we could get only when n*tore

Eich men want trout at all seasons of
the year, when it is known that they
can only be obtained in thc spring.
Young chickens caunot be obtained
except at their weight in gold during
the winter, if they arc grown during
the cold months and killed just before
being used. By means of the Cold
storage system they cost little more
on New Year's day than they do in
May. Spring lamb, that was obtain
able formerly only in May and June,
is carefully packed away in the spring
and sold the succeeding winter and
weeks before the earliest spring lamb
of the following spring is born. Beef
and mutton are not kept nearly so
long-no need to do so.
"Bluefish can be. obtained only at
certain seasons, yet they are fin sale
all thc time. The same is true regard
ing bass, mackerel and other fish.
Oysters and clams are also kept for
months at a time and frequently from
one scnt'o? to another.''
A visit to one of these warehouses is
interesting. The walls aro of extra
ordinary thickness, sheathed with
wood and filled with huge ice-boxes.
In some of the more modern ware
houses the same chemicals used to
make artificial ice are circulated
through the rooms b}' means of pipes,
which keep the temperature several
degrees below zero. The fish, meat
or game to be preserved is packed in
tho ice-boxes, which have doubla
walls, and the ice is packed around
them. With the atmosphere around
them below zero, thc articles to be
preserved are kept at a temperature
that would make an Arctic explorer
shiver until they are wanted, when
they are taken out and sold, some
times in a few days, and as often in a

CAR AND KILLHSH.
Table Manners of a Fish Built on Tor.
nedo Boat Specifications.
The gar may be described as a fish
built on torpedo boat lines considera
bly drawn out. There is one now at
the Aquarium which came from Lake
Erie, is three feet long, and doesn't
look to be three inches through amid
ships. Its snout is long, slender, and
tapering, and its mouth opens back
six or-seven inches, so that in general
appearance its jaws are much like a
pair of shears.
When the gar ls under one bell, so
to speak; it moves through the watef
very smoothly, making no commotion
whatever, and that is the way it moves
when it sets about capturing a kill
fish. It swims along very quietly and
gently, with its mouth closed, in the
direction of the killie, and keeps mov
ing until it has overrun the killie by
three or four inches; the gar then
lying quietly in the Wake with tho
unsuspecting killie close by.
.Suddenly the gar opens its moltth
slightly and swings its head sidewise
and closes its jaws? Thc chancea ard
that the little killie is then between
the gar's iong jaws crosswise, its head
projecting on one side and its tail od
the other) it may be that it is paral
yzed at once by the gdr's shavp tectllj
or it may wriggle a little:
The gnr is in nb hurry; not the
slightest; it knows very well that the
killie can't get away. Pretty soon it
begins to shift the killie back toward
its throat, so it can swallow it. The
gar doesn't work the killie back in its
jaws, but it opens its jaws just enough
to clear the killie, and then it hitches
forward itself with a movement so
slight and quick as to be scarcely per-<
ceptible, setting its jaws together
again with the killie still lying across
the upper side of the under jaw, head
on one side and tail on the other, but
a little nearer the gar'a throat.
Still not in the slightest hurry about
it, the gar repeats this two or three
times, until it has got the killie pretty
well back in its jaws; then it sets
about slewing the killie round length
wise, so as to take it in and swallow
it. Most fishes prefer to swallow a
fish head first, so that the fins won't
S2>read ont and stick in the swallow
er's throat, but it doesn't appear to
make much difference to the gar
which way it takes the killie; if the
killie should still retain some life, and
it managos to wriggle itself around in
the gar's Shifting of it so that its tail
is toward the gar's tail, tho gnr
does not undertake to slew it clear
around agaiu with its tail forward,
but when it gets the killie well along
side its mouth it opens it long jaws a
little wider and takes the killie in
bodily, closes its jaws, and moves gen
tly on.-New York Sun.
Thc Sleep of Plants.
Like animals all plants require in
tervals of repose, during which the vi
tal functions are slowed down, and the
Organic structures Undergo repair,
t?omo plants repose during the rainy
season; others during periods of
drought; but while some plants sleep
during the cold or the comparatively
told season of thd year; others again
tako their rest.when the average tem
perature is high. It occurred to a
Norwegian observed to investigate tho
sleep of plants, more particularly with
the object of shortening the period of
repose, and this he claims to have at
tained by subjecting the bulbs or buds
to the action of cl or of orin vapor. He
asserts, indeed, that plants thus treat
ed subsequently develop more rapidly
tiltia bliuoc -irliuoo i"cj;ooo lin? not been
intensified by the narcotic action of
this drug, and the observation is not
without considerable interest.
If his observations are trustworthy,
it follows that sleep in plants is not
strictly comparable to that of animal
life, for wo do not suppose that the
period allotted to sleep by animals
could advantageously be shortened by
the administration of an anesthetic.
Sleep, on the other hand, is a relative
rather than an absolute condition. Its
value as a restorative depends in a
very marked degree on its iutensity,
and certain individuals derive more
benefit and recuperate their jaded en
ergies more effectually iu five or six
hours than others do after twice as
long. This recuperative energy is as
serted to bc an indication of a high
standard of vitality, and common ob
servation certainly lends color to the
view that diminished recuperative
power is indicative of physiological
deterioration.-London Medical Press.
Punish Criminal! hy Eating Their Bodies.
The most cruel form of criminal
punishment is that found iu vogue
among the Battaks or Battas, who in
habit that part of the island of Sumatra
south of Atcheen. Dr. Van der Tunk,
a German discoverer, was astonished
to learn how civilized the Battaks are
in every respect except in their treat
ment of their prisoners.
There hanging and electrocuting
have not the ghost of a show. Both
these methods and that suggested by
the recently famed Society for tho
Betterment of the Hllma'i Species,
would all bo voted inadequate for the
proper punishment of criminals guilty
of capital ofibncc8, which offences by
tho way, aro much more nume
rous than in the United States, thiev
ing being looked upon by tho Battaks
as one of tho most heinous of capital
"The Battaks no sooner convict a
criminal," says Dr. Van der Tunk,
"than the sentence is carried out.
The convict is placed face downward
on a large flat stone, and the body is
then chopped into pieces by small
stone axes. The authorities then dis
tribute these pieces among the fam
ilies of tho village where the crime has
been committed, and the villagers eat
these pieces with the greatest relish,
there being a belief current among the
Battaks that if the body of a criminal
is merely buried the soul may come
back to the body and resurrect it."
The enemies of the Battaks cap
tured in war receive tho same fate as
do their criminals. Women are sel
dom or never executed among them.

Long years ago, when the Hawaiian
Islands, small as they are, supported
not one but several flourishing king
doms, the kings, chiefs and nobles,
whenever they appeared in public on
state occasions, wore, instead of the
purple and ermine of more civilized
potentates, capes and cloaks of bril
liant feathers. The mdics o' the court
1vere forced to content themselves with
feather hoas? as we should call them,
known as "leis." These capes and
collars were made from the yellow/ ted
and black feathers of a few species of
small birds peculiar to the Sandwich
Islands, and called, from their habits,
honey-suckers, fashion ruled even in
those days, and as the yellow feathers
were scarcer than the red, the yellow
was the fashionable color, and the
.more powerful the chief the more yel
low was his robe of state. These yel
llow feathers were found only on two
or three species of hirds, the finest
coming from a bird called in the na
tive language "mamo" and known as
?ropanls pacifica hy ornithologists.
These birds, with their striking black
and yellow plumage, were as dear to
the hearts of thc Hawaiian monarchs
as they might be to-day to the hearts
Of patriotic Princeton students, and
were sought for far and near through
out the islands. The populace paid
poll-taxes in golden feathers ln?tead
of golden dollars, and as each bird fur
nished but a few feathers, the taxes
may be considered as having been
high. Some estimate of the valUe of
the feathers may be formed from the
prices paid in later times, when a piece
of nankeen cloth valued at a dollar
and a half was the equivalent of five
feathers; but, after all, the great ele
ment in the cost of these cloaks was
the time and labor, since the making
of a single cloak required from fifty
to a hundred years.
As the feathers obtained for taxes
were very far from supplying the de
mand, the chiefs were accustomed to
employ a regular staff of bird-catchers,
much as a mediaeval baron had his
staff of falconers. These skilled for
esters prepared a sort of birdlime from
