Although March is the month in the
calendar which is named in honor of
the god of war, April seems to be the
month most intimate with strife and
bloodshed. This observation is spe
cially true with reference to the great
conflicts of American history. On
April 19, 1775, occurred the first battle
of the American revolution at Lexing
ton, Miss. On April 15, 17S3, the pre
liminary treaty of peace between Great
Britain and the United States was far
mally ratified by the provisional .con
gress which met in Philadelphia. Since
the part which April thus played in the
achievement of American independ
ence was so pronounced iv seems fit
ting that President Washington should
have beer, inaugurated on April 30,
17S9. The opening gun of the Mexi
can war was fired April 25, 1845. On
Anril 12. IStil, the first gunshot of the
late civil war was fired at Fort Sunl

Grant on April 9, 1SG5. Gen. Johnston
surrendered to Gen. Sherman on April

In Planting Koses.
Plaut budded roses with, the earth
an iuch and a half above the bud. j
Roses need au abundance of food.
Blooming on new wood they should
be cut back severely. Yellow roses
do not grow like others; are poor
growers, blossoming on last year's
wood. The rule should be to grow
enough so one-half can be cut back
each spring, leaving the other half
for flowers.-Philadelphia Public Led
It is well to look to animals stabled
to see if there is any vermin crawling
upon them. In most cases there will
be, unless the animal is fattening. In
winter the hair is thicker than at any
other season. When it begins to fall
out use the currycomb freely, and as
each handful of hair comes out rub
over the place a weak emulsion of
kerosene oil and soap. Only a weak
emulsion will be needed.as the slight
est amouLt of oil on the sides of the
lice will close their breathing holes
and suffocate them. Wheu cattle have
a run out of doors in summer they rid
themselves of lice by rolling in the
dust, which clogs up the lice just as
the kerosene emulsion does.
Grafting; Cherry and Plum Trees.
Both cherry and plum trees are
reckoned difficult to graft, and as
while small the work can be easily
performed by budding in summer,
there is comparatively little of graft
ing done. But if the grafts are cut
early and packed in moist sand, so as
to keep the buefs dormant it is no
more difficult to graft cherry or plum
thau other kinds of trees. Both cherry
and plum trees put out leaves and
blossoms earlier than the large fruits.
No graft can be made to grow if ihe
bud ou its terminal is already swelled
and nearly ready to burst into leaf.
It takes time to effect the union of
the graft with stock which is neces
sary to keep the leaf from withering
quickly if it starts too soon. In graft
ing cherry trees care should be taken
to graft only Mahaleb on Mahaleb
stock and never on the Mor?llo,which
should also be grafted on its own
stock. They are distinct species, and
the habit of growth in each is differ
ent from the other. We havo seen
such grafting successfully done, but
the union of graft and stock was less
perfect than if each graft had been
set on its own species. Nature thus
sets her mark of disapproval upon
hybridism even in plants.
Itetter Cattle Wanted.
Gradually return or get rid
of the common or plain class of cattle
by crossing the breed with the best
grade? to. be obtained, and continue
this cross breediug until we have
nothing in the country but the half,
three-quarter aud thoroughbreds, the
latter being desirable for breeding
purposes principally, as this animal is
not so profitable to the producer as
the half or three-quarter strain, which,
generally speaking, is a better pro
portioned and more desirable animal
for food than the thoroughbred.
Prepare and market your beef steer
either as a yearling or two-year-old ;in
no case keep it beyond three years.
It is during these years that the sa])
is iu the beef, and if fat the animal is
in the best condition for the market
he will ever be or you can make him."
There is no surplus hone or fat that
matures after the third year that adds
to this marketable value, aud then
again after that time a greater quau
tity and heavier feed is required. The
heavy cuts of beef that were once in
demand are fast losing their prestige,
as now the general inquiry and de
mand of the consumer is for prime
young light weights of beef. Evi
dences of this may frequently be seen
in the market quotations of cattle
sales, wherein prime yearlings are
sold at the same price per pound as
prime four-year-old matured and fin
ished cattle which have cost the pro
ducer a goodly sum per animal more
to make.-President Thompson be

Harley and Oats for Hu; Pasture.
When the clover crop has failed or
if a field was not seeded last fall and
is not to be sown this spring, a very
good substitute can be had by sowing
a mixture of oats and barley. Mix
the seed in proportions of three parts
barley to one of oats and sow two
bushels or two and one-half bushels
per acre. Prepare the land as for oats,
sow with a seeder and cover by har
rowing thoroughly. Have the ground
as fine as possible aud well comj>aeted
so that if dry weather comes the crop
will not be seriously injured. If it is
not desirable to sow with a seeder,
harrow before seeding until the seed
bed is thoroughly fined, then go over
the ground with a drill, having it set
so that the seed will be covered two
or two and one-half inches. The
crop will be ready for pasture as soon
it is tall enough to hide the
Enough hogs must be on hand to
keep it down for if it gets large it will
not be relished and consequently not
eaten. If kept down it will furnish
pasture during the entire spring and
early summer, provided there is a suf
cient amount of rainfall. By sowing
at different times, this1 pasture can be
made to last the entire season
through. For the first crop seed as
early as the ground is in condition,
then every month or six weeks there
after until the latter part of July. The
rop can be grown wherever oats or
wheat flourish. There is no difficulty
in securing a stand and an excellent
pasture can thus be secured. Every
one who has live stock, particularly
hogs, should seed a small aie? this
spring. -American Agriculturist.
Cutting Oats for liny.
If oats are cut when the tips of the
heads begin to turu, or while the ker
nel is in the dough and the straw
green, they will make one of the very
best foods for dairy cattle and are
second in value only to clover hay.
Whon the oats are sown for this pur
pose about one-fourth more seed to
the aero should be used, the object
being to get a large yield of fine straw
to the acre.
It is always advisable to use soma
early variety of oats, which may he
cut and stored away before commenc
ing the harvest of other small grain.
Sow the oats on land that has been
plowed in the fall, and which is rea
sonably free from weed seeds. Hay
oats should not he sown on any very
fertile land, as it will then be liable
to lodge and be ruined by rust and
It will in most cases be best to cut
the oats with a binder, as close to the
ground as possible. Care should, be
taken to have the bundles made very
small, so as to cure well in the shock
without molding in the centre of the
bundles. Only small oblong shocks
should be put up, in order to have
them dry out quickly and thoroughly.
Oats sown for hay can very properly
be cut with a mower, and secured in
the same way as any other "variety of
hay, but the crop will not be so> con
venient to handle, as when cut with a
self-binder and there is always more
or less soil mixed with the hay. Then
if the weather is rainy there is much
more danger of damage. If necessary
to stack it out in the held, cover with
some wild native hay, as oat hay does
not shed water readily. Land upon
which oats have grown for hay, if
plowed immediately after the hay has
been removed, will be in a first class,
condition for raising a good ?crop * of
wheat.-Orange Judd Farmer.*
There are more points that should
be considered in connection with plow
ing than many people imagine. First
ill order will be a few points about
whether it should bea riding plow or
a walking plow woufd depend union
the individual aud his circumstances.
If he has large fields and plenty of 1
horse power, plowing with the riding
plew may be cheaper. In either case
the plow will pull the easiest that is
shortest from end ol beam to plow
point, other things being equal. This
is true because the team hitched to
such a plow does more liftiiig of the
earth and less palling through it. A
short and deeply concave mould-board
on a plow is best for plowing sod or
clay land. This is because it breaks
or cracks the earth that is turned, thus
leaving it mellow. But this kimi of
])low is utterly useless in some soils.
I had a plow of this pattern that had
a most provoking way of sticking to
mother earth when it arrived at a cer
tain place in the field. . Tie plow was
perfectly bright and smooth, and yet
this particular soil would always stick
toit, filling "the mould-board com
pletely. This side of the li?ld was a
fine, loose, mellow, black soil.
"When to plow depends upon the
j soil, climate and drainage. Fall plow
ing for corn would never be a good
practice upon very rolling land, on
account of the washing of the soil.
On lund where there is no dajnger of
this anil where the plowed surface
will not puddle or run together in soft
mud, fall plowing would be likely to
prove a gt (od thing, as it would expose
the soi) ''o the action of frost, the best
pulveriser in the world. This would
greatly lmp^owe the mechanical condi
tion of the soil. In addition io this it
would d?cr?t?e the amount of wprk to
be done is tbie spring. We dp not
wish to. ?xposie our rolling land to the
winter ?ailis, but may derive some
benefit. fiUm. tho frosts of March.
I have plptwed a stiff clay sod fn
March and: lied it freeze to a depth of
only one-half inch,and yet it harrov 1
np tho first, t?ne almost as mellow as
a? ash heap. There would not he j
qdite so much advantage in plowing a
clover sod'.iu March, for the longer
the\cloverfis left to grow the . more
nitrogen it will accumulate. The
larger th crop of clover to plow nu
der the'more it will enrich the soil. /
In my own case, list spring, early,
I^vas engaged in grading tho yard
and painting ;ue house, thiugB that
had'io be done as I built a new- house
the fhn before. Being busy with
other things I got no plowing done
early, pater it was entirely too wet
to ?dow. The first plowing that could
be done iii this community was April 1
19. This made planting a little late/
than usual. I first plowed the sod
wherte the clover had been all kil'/ed
out, then the clover that was ncai-ty a
foot hifth. This mass of clover greatly
enriched the ground. It might have
been dih\? ent if the season had been
a dry one. after corn was planted. But
as it was, |,tlie rain rotted and made
the soil available by the time the cora
needed it most.
In the statd experiment the depth
of the furrow,'.whether six or eight or
more inches, doss not show any effect
upon the crop. While this wa J true
for that aoil and for that seasc D, I do
not believe that shallow plowing can
give as good resorts. It is reasonable
that the less soil . there is the less
plant food there is, and the less 2>Iant
food there is thve sooner exhausted*:
If we always plow the same depth the
tramping of the horses and the pres-,
sure of the plow pricks the subsoil nad
makes it impervious* to both water and
plant roots. We should plow to a
uniform depth and we should change
the depth of farrow at each plovving.
We should plow the deepest iu the
fall, when subsoil is dryest.-A.. 6L

A Good Remedy for Burns.
If our readers are not familiar with
the fact that, common baking soda,
(bicarbonate of soda) is a particularly
good application to auy comparatively
slight burn or scald; then, if used
when such au accident occurs, they
will probably receive the full value of
a year's subscription to our paper.
The way to use it is to sprinkle the
burn as well as the cloth to be ap
plied, freely with the soda, wrapping
the injured part with tho cloth and
keeping it well soaked with cold wa
ter. It may be well to repeat the ap
plication, as the water washes the
soda away. By this treatment scalds
that are pretty severe are relieved
from pain in the course of six to tea
hours. It gives relief at once.
Paste this up in the kitchen, if you
are forgetful, and be sure to have
some soda on hand for burns only.

many additions in recent years from
the stage, the music hall aud even the
public houses. It remains for San
Francisco to furnish the pages of
"Burke" with an erstwhile telephone
girl who will hereafter figure in that
balky volume as "Lady Bretherton."
Sadie Holmes, as the future Lady
Bretherton has been known to her
family and her friends, was compelled
to work as a telephone girl for the
past eight weeks owing to her father's
reverses in business. Now, by a
sudden change of fortune, she has a
fortune of $1,000,000 and au estate in
Wales, together with the title.
In speaking to a reporter for a local
paper of the inheritance, she said: "It
is like a fairy story. The property be
longing to Lady Jane Bretherton, who
died two months ago, passed to my
father at her death, by reason of tho
Esglish law of entail. This was not
unexpected, but what my father did
not know, until so informed by the
London lawyers, was that the title of
that portion of the estate that is in
Wales passes to the eldest daughter
of the heir. I am papa's eldest daugh
ter, so you see 1 am the fortunate
This brief but comprehensive ex
planation was fully corroborated by
tho statements of Mr. Holmes and by
documentary evidence in thc shape of
a bundle of formal legal papers that
were received from London a few days
Lady Bretherton is 21 years old and
pretty. She and her father will go to
England in a few weeks.-New York
, An Indian Girt.
In 1892 the "Seger" achool was
built, iu Oklahoma territory, among a
colony of Cheyennes and Arapahoes,
considered among the wildest, most
backward and non-progressive of all
Indians. Fortunately the superin
tendent of tho now school, Mrs. John
Seger, had already gained their con
fidence in another capacity, so that
when they were asked to put their
children in school they said they
Would as soon as they were weaned.
And they carried this out literally.
One of the girl pupils, who entered
the school when it wasopened,has had
quite a remarkable record. Having
no previous education, and leaving
her f jally savage home for the first
time, she has demonstrated what edu
cation is doing aud will do for the red
man. There is a system iu nearly all
the government Indian schools by
which those pupils who are both in
dustrious and frugal may earn money
in the sewing roora, on the farm, or in
some one of the school's other indus
trial departments. Of course this
must be outside of their regular work.
This young girl, after taking a regular
course as a scholar, was judged capa
ble of filling a salaried position. In
the course of a short time she filled?
not one, but several, and worked in
the sewing room besides. Out of h>r
savings she bought a wagon, harness,
team,organ, bedroom eet and a sewing
machine,all in view of her prospective
marriage to a young Indian to whom
she was engaged, aud when they were
married she took enough savings with
her to build a neat home. All this was
accomplished in three years' time^
Lifo o? Women in Venezuela.
Miss Stevens, whose travels in Ve?
ezuela have given her ar. insight into
the life of the people there, told some
interesting anecdotes of the country
in her talk before the professional
"Woman's League recently.
"The climate of that region is not,
as one would suppose," she said,
"severely tropical. The summers are
not, indeed, at severe as those in this
latitude, but the summer lasts the
whole year, and for that re?stui te?
perhaps^ more enervating. To the
warm climate may be traced the habit
practised by the women of excessive
powdering of their faces, which is
one of the first things a foreigner
notices. Every one knows how cool
ingly refreshing a sweet-smelling face
powder is on a hot day. Another sin
gular custom is the Venezuelan's love
for Hew shoGs; She buys the finest
she cnn afford, and will dance them
out in a night. She must also have a
new pair to wear each time that she
attends mass, and, however expensive
these are, she will not appear on the
street in them a second time. Upon
returning home she will break down
the heel and shuffle about the house
in them as house slippers.
"Everybody dances,with or without
music, brit a ?ort of rhythm or time is
is produced sometimes by shaking
peas in a gourd or by the clapping of
hands. Even the men lu the Cafes
sometimes get up a dance among
themselves and manage with this cer
tainly improratd kind of music. The
mode of dancing is not like ours. Foi
instance the partners merely take each
other by both bauds,or hythe elbows,
although the senoritas sometimes are
persuaded to dance with Americaus
after the American fashion.
"Besides the beauty of the climate,
the charm of living is increased by an
absence of nil pests. There are no
flies, no mosquitoes, no rate or var?
min; nor are lhere any skin or throat
diseases. But there is a form of ill
ness which attacks infants, and from
which about only teu per cent, of ?the
children recover. It is a kind of in
digestion caused by the kind of bread
