Circulation of thc Mod.
Tho mileage of the blood circulation
reveals some astonishing facts in our
personal history. Thus it has been cal
culated that, assuming: the heart to
beat sixty-nine times a minute at or
dinary heart pressure, the blood gees
at the rate o? ?07 yarde in the minute,
or seven miles per hour, 103 miles per
day and Gl.320 miles per year. V. a man
84 years of age could have one single
blood corpuscle floating In his bloon
all his life, it would have traveled in
that same time 5.150.SS0 miles.

In a contemporary recommends not to
bathe the feet in warm water, as it
only softens the skin, rendering thc
condition worse. He recommends cool
watT, with soap and dusting thc feet
with a powder containing salicylic
acid. This is very good where there
is odor attending the perspiration, but
I think, says Dr. Brodnax, from cases
In my own practice, that better results
will attend in the following: Let the
feet at night be immersed in moder
ately cool water ioFfen minutes, dry
them and place the bottom of the feet
in a shallow, flat-bottomed vessel,
with about a quarter of an inch in
depth of whisky, say one ounce, tan
nin, four drachms, or strong oak bark
ooze and whiskey, equal parts; let re
main for ten minutes and let dry on
the feet; draw on a sock to prevent
soiling the bedding. Kbralide is a fine
thing to use to ease the tired, uncom
fortable feeling of the feet. In two
cases I used permanganate of potas
sium, thirty grains, water, one pint,
letting the nottoms of the feet remain
in the solution for ten minutes, and
dry without wiping. The advantage
of either process is that lt hardens the
tissues and removes the pain.

HOW BIG GUNS ARE FIRED.
A Thousand-Pound Shot Hurled Five
Miles With Precision.
The writer once witnessed at close
quarters a target practice of the two
twelve-inch rifles mounted at Sandy
Hook, and a brief description o? how
the mighty guns work and the
"scores" that can be made with
them may be of interest just now.
Tho guns are mounted on elevators,
aud aro loaded at tho breech when
sunk in a shaft, where the gunners
work in perfect safety. While they
aro*being loaded two observers, at.
some distance and in different direc
tions from the guns, are "finding"
the target, as it is called.
That this work may be done speed
ily and accurately, engineers have de
voted many months of precise work.
Tho result of this is that tho two
observers have before them charts co
related with each point of observation,
guns and the field within which is the
target. Th?> observers have instant
communication with each other aud
with the gunners by threo means,
which need not be mentioned. The
"target" being determined upon-say
one of a fleet of hostile ships-it is
"found"' by ihe two observers. Each
learns from his observation the direc
tion of the target. Observer A takes
his own and observer B's observation
and extends two lines on his chart,
which give him the exact location of
the target, which is where tho two
extended lines meet; and this also de
termines, so elaborately has the pre
charting been dono, the exact direc
tion and distance of the target from
the guns. This information is com
municated to " tho gunners. They
know-for these clements have also
beeu accurately determined-how
much the rifle must be elevated, with
a given charge aud projectile, to carry
the required distance.
This sounds complicated, but it is
as easy us it i? for a bank clerk to de
termine a complicated problem in in
terest by turning to a printed compi
lation, a table.
But the result: Having the infor
mation given to him by the observers,
the gunner raises the big cannon on
its elevator platform, it is directed
aud elevated by simple machinery, the
lauyard is pulled a thousand pounds
of steel hurtles through tho air, and
the cannon is sunk in the shaft for an
In the practice witnessed by the
writer the target was five miles dis
tant, and so small it could not be dis
tinguished from tho ocean white-caps
by those who stood by the guns. But
not a shot was fired which would not
have struck a ship located where the
target was.-New York World.

Emeralds Aro Scarce.
It is reported that emeralds are
steadily disappearing. In tho fifties
nnd sixties emeralds were the favorite
jewels, and were worn strung on a
thread like pearls. Now emeralds are
no longer polished into a round form,
but are polished like diamonds. Fault
less stones of a deep color have always
been as valuable as diamonds. Tho
reason of the scarcity of emeralds is
tho decrease in production in the Ural
Mountains. Emeralds were first dis
covered on the right bank of tho To
kowoler, near B'atharineburg, in 1830;
and in the first years' the harvest was
a rich one.

There aro two reasons why oats ar

because of their chaff, so that grain ii

It takes very little oats per day t

and greatly increase its value afte

rrolJficncv of Fowls.
It is very easy among a lot of fowl
to decide which will be the best layers
It is always the hen that has rei
combs and Uiat gets up the earlies
even in cold weather. When a hen i
moping aud dumpish she will no
lay many eggs, and those she doe
lay, while they may be all right whiL
fresh, for eating, are worth little o:
nothing for setting. If tho eggs fo:
setting were always chosen from fowl
thai wore themselves active and vig
orous, thc greatest possible improve
ment in the prolificacy of fowls would
bc made at no expense whatever.
Fruit Crowing on Hill Lands.
Some of the best fruit in all section;
of the country comes from the hili
districts, where both climatic condl
tions and soil seem to promote cer
tainty of crop aud fine quality o:
fruit. Hills bordering running watei
have rich surface soil, with porous
subsoil resting on lime rocks that ar?
slowly disintegrating, and a natural
drainage. But location, howevei
good, is not sufficient. Orcharding
requires diligent, patient work,
knowledge of when, why and how tc
spray, and how to secure protectior
from enemies. Never allow trees tc
bear fully. Thinning is one of the
pest possible practices, thereby get
ting less fruit, but of far better grade.

Three Crops in a Greenhouse. "
Boston greenhouso gardeners often
follow the last crop of lettuce with ti
crop of beets and radishes. Good rad
ish seed is important. A favorite va
riety of beets is the Egyptiau. The
seed is started in hotbeds aud trans
planted into houses about the first of
May. Beets are set four by eight and
radishes one inch apart between the
beet rows. The care of the beets and
radishes is very much the same as if
grown outdoors after tho plants are
set. Bows of cucumbers are often set
ulong the edges of the beet and radish
beds and trained on trellises over
head. The cucumbers do not shade

Feed For lireedlnp; Ewes.
Breeding ewes have not only ftc
keep up their own animal heat and
energy and provide for tho growing
feet us within them,but they have also
to make growth of wool on their own
bodies. That they do not always get
enough of tho right kind of food for
all these purposes is shown by tho
fact that the wool from ewes is less
valuable than that from au equal
weight of wool from wethers or ewes
that aro not bred. Possibly some
weakness of tho fiber ls inevitable in
that which is produced while ewes are
dropping their young, when there is
naturally more or less fever. But the
wool may be made much better if the
awes are given succulent food to keep
their digestion good.and bran mashes,
which are just what are needed, noiT

produce a thrifty and vigorous lamb,
which is also boru with moro or less

If farmers who delight -in owning
and working large aroas could see the
crops taken from small plots by the
truckers near Now York City, they
would receive an object lesson in in
tensivo funning which would bo ef
fectual. On Long Island and in New
Jersey especially, there are dozens of
patches, not farms, which, with the
aid of a few hotbeds, aro made to pay
high rents and support large families,
'.rite soil is kept to the highest point
of fertility, every iuch of it is
thoroughly cultivated and every advan
tage ia taken of the lay of the laud.
From the first day that the wrather
will permit tho soil being worked un
til thc ground is finally used for oelery
blanching, it is constantly employed
in crop production; it is no unusual
sight to see half a dozen men indus
triously at work on an aero or two of
ground. It is the same principle the
florist applies to plant and flower
growiug. If his benches yield but one
crop of plants or blossoms during the
year, his business is a failure. Every
square foot of it must yield two or
more crops for a profitable year's work.
-Orange Judd Farmer.
USP of Humus-Forming Material.
Thc claim of Southern farmers that
clover, cow-peas, weeds and other
green mammal plants turned under
dry, rather i han green, give better re
sults, is well founded.
Green manuring has been practised
for centuries in Europe and for some
years in our Northern States, and
valuable results have accrued from
such a course. But for the last few
years farmers aud scientific men have
di tiered upon tho plans of turning
under these green crops.
Our best Southern farmers *are al
most unanimous in preferring to turn
under the crops when dry than when
green. Necessity may have at first
brought about the plan of turning
under the crops after they had become
matured or dry, and this necessity
may have been tho means of demon
strating that it was more profitable sc
I to do.
The mysteries of Nature's labora
tory stored in the soil are bard to un
derstand in plant life. Tho same toil
will produce a root that is nutritious
and healthful to man and beast, and
at thc same time one that is poisonous
to both. You may graft a sour apple
on a sweet stock, and the 6ame tree
will produce both sweet aud sour ap
ples. So it is with tho changes that
take placo in the soil in turning under
green and dry substances.
The advocates of turning under our
crops when dry claim that tho fermen
tation that lakes placo when green
crops aro turned under is different
from that of tho dry substances; that
the green crops sour the land, and un
less lime is used it is an injury and
not a benefit to some.
Then the crops are green in August,
and they claim thal lands turned up
and exposed to the hot sun are in
jured. This is true, as a cotton crop
which requires late ploughing and
close culture is more injurious to our
lauds than a corn crop. Some of oui
best fnrmers report an actual injury in
yield of crops where cow peas were
turned under groen in August.
But all agree that peas sown in land
and turned under late in the fall, when
dry, do benefit the lauds.-B. D.

fulness, good temper and constancy,
but blue eyes with a greenish tint are
not so strongly indicative of these traits.
A slight inclination to groouish tints

Women and th? VTheel.
From the Gazette, Delaware, Ohio,
Tho healthfulness of bicycle riding fer
women ls still a disputed question between
eminent physicians and health reformers.
Used in modoration it surely creates for
women a moans of out-door exorcise, the
benefit of whloh all physicians concedo.
Ufltd to ozcess, like any other pastime, its
effect ls likely to be dangerous.
Tho experience of Miss Bertha Reed, the
sevonteon-year-old daughter of Mr. J. B.
Rood, 335 Lake St.. Delaware. Ohio, may
point a moral for parents who, like Mr. and
Mrs. Reed, have experienced some concern
for their daughters who are fond of wheel
ing. In the fall of '9G Mis? Bertha who had
ridden a great doa!, began to fail in an
alarming manner. She grew steadily paler
?iud thinner, and it appeared she was going
into consumption. Rest and quiet did her
good. A physi
cian found her
pulse nt 101 -a
li very high rate,
fi Thinking this
T maj have been
due to tempo
ness when he
She Jliiea Well examined her,
closely, but her pulse continued
at that rate for two weeks. He
was satisfied then, from bor high
pulse and steadily wasting oondition that
she was suffering froaj.aptomla or a blood
less condition of the body. She became ex
tremely weak, and could not stand the
loast nolso or oxoltcmdtat. In this condition
of affairs thoy woro recommended by an
old friend to get some of that famous blood
modiclne Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Palo
Pooplo. They did so, and almost from the
first doso Bertha bogau tu Improve. Bho
continued to take the pills and was by
means of tboso pills xnado entirely well,
and more grateful people than her parents
cannot bo found in the wholo State of Ohio.
Dr. Williams'Pink Pills havo proved a
boon to womankind. Aotlng directly on
the blood and nor vos, thor restore the req
uisite vitality to all parts of tho body;
creating functional regularity and porfeot
harmony throughout the norvons.system.
The pallor ot tho cheeks is changed to tho

?ighc to show the approach of morning. I
randered to your office, as you know, in a
londltlon suggestive of being ready to cross
he dark and troubled wave of death. I
old you of my slavery to a habit which
leserves tho pity of every intelligent and
charitable person on earth, and cried to you
or help. After a careful diagnosis of my
.ase, and learning how long I had used
)piates or Morphine, and the quantity ne
?essary to sustain me at the time, you pre
mred for me a bottle of your invaluable An
id?te, and from that glad hour I have net
her wanted, needed nor used a grain M
?orphine, Opium or other Opiate. After
commencing the use .if your Antidote my
general health began to improve, wretched
less and despair that had been my oonstant
companions, by degrees deserted me, and
>ne month ago I realized that my system no
onger required the uso of your Antidote,
ind that I was indeed a free man. I am
pleased to report that my health is con
itantly improving. I weigh today thirty
jounds more than I did. I have somo of
;he last bottle of your Antidote, and will
sreserve and keep it as a sacred relic of my
restoration from midnight darkness into the
aright light of day and happiness.
In looking back upon my unhappy, un
real past, I feel in fancy as if awakened from
in uneasy dream, to look upon life with
ivide-open eyes, and active mind that Under
wood its realities. A fow short months ago

my hoping, all my despairing, I can walk
forth into the beautiful sunlight of heaven,
Into "Eden's sweetest greening" free as a
