A Memorial on a Mountain Top. -
There was a touch of romance as
well as originality In the way In which
the Tyrolese marked the occasion of
the death of Princ? Bismarck. The
news made a deep .mprossion on the
sturdy mountaineers, in whose veins
flows German blood. At Llenz the In
habitants conveyed the sad message
to the rest of their kin from the sum
mit of the'nearest and highest moun
tain, the Spitzkofcl. At night time a
band of the villagers made the ascent
of ?he Spitzkofel, bearing a .large
black flag. In seven hours they reach
ed the mountain peak, 2,740 metres
above the sea, and they there planted
the flag so that it was visible to all
the vllls. dotting the valley below.

Our Second Satellite.
If we are to credit the observations
made by Dr. Georg YValtemath of
Hamburg. Germany, our earth is ac
companied "in her wanderings, not by
one satellite only, as we have hitherto
been con+ent to believe, but by two.
Although It seems utterly incredible
that we should have to wait till th-*
end of the nineteenth century for the
recognition of the existence of this
second moon, yet we must remember
that numerous observations, mostly, lt
ls true, utterly unscientific and vague,
have from time to time been made
recording the passage of an unknown
dark body across the sun's disc.
These obsfrvations were some short
time back collated by Dr. Waitemata,
and from the facts thus brought to
gether he has evolved the theory of
the existence of a small moon hitherto
unrecognized, having a diameter of
Borne 440 miles, wit'h a volume 123
times smaller than that of the moon,
and a mass eighty times less.
In announcing his theory Dr. Waite
mata predicted a transit of this body
across the sun's disc for a date early
In February Inst and curiously enough
he has since had his prediction con
firmed from more than one. quarter.
He has received letters from China,
where1 taree German officers in thc
Chinese service observed the phenom
enon; from V.'cisbaden and other
towns In Germany. These confirma
tory observations may, of course, be
mere coincidences; but wilder theories
than that of Dr. Waltemath have hy
the advancement of science been prov
ed to be sober facts.-London Chroni

Serene comfort and happiness in ad
vanced years are realized by compara
tively few women.
Their hard lives, their liability to se
rions troubles on account of their pecu
liar organism and their profound igno
rance concerning themselves, all com
bine to shorten the period of usefulness
and fill their later years with suffering.
Mrs. Pinkham has done much to mako
women strong. She has given advice
to many that has shown them how to
guard against disease and retain vigor
ous health in old age. From every cor
ner of the earth there is constantly com
ing the most convinciug statements
from women, showing the efficacy of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound in overcoming female ills. ITere
is a letter from Mrs. J. C. Onus, of 220
Homer St., Johnstown, Pa., which is
earnest and straight to the point :
" DEAB Mas. PTXKHAM:-I feel it my
duty to tell nil suffering women that I
think your remedies are wonderful. I
had trouble with my head, dizzy spells
and hot flashes. Feet and hands were
cold, was very nervous, could not sleep
well, had kidney trouble, pain in
ovaries and congestion of the womb.
Since taking your remedies I am better
every way My head trouble is all
gone, have no pain in ovaries, and am
cured of womb trouble. I can eat and
sleep well and am gaining in flesh. I
consider your medicine the best to be
had for female troubles."
The present Mrs. Pinkham's experi
ence in treating female ills is unparal
leled, for years she worked side by
side with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and
for sometime past has had sole charge
of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating.by letter
as many ns a hundred thousand ailing
women, during a single year,
A Black Satin Costume.
A costume of black satin has a sk ir ;
trimming of the richest imaginable
applique set on in a band dividing the
upper and lower halves of the skirt.
This band extends around in a straight
line. Below it is another band curved
low in front and rising high at the
sides. This band heads a flounce
about 12 inches deep, which is gath*
ered upon a cord, then" shaped into
loose plaits and tack?d down upon
the foundation. This gives the ef
fect of great fullness without the
weight of a large quantity of material.
The youthful Queen "Wilhelmina of
Holland some years ago hud misbe
haved to her governess, aa English
lady. The governess, ns a penance,
bade her unruly pupil draw a sketch
map of Europe with the priucipal
cities and features indicated. In
course of an hour the young culprit
presented herself and her map to the
taskmaster. Holland was drawn with
vastly disproportion ed territory and
careful detail. England was rep
resented as an islnud too small in size
for anythiug but its name; Ireland
was made rather more significant; and
across the margin of the work was
written: "The actual English territory
is too limited to allow details.-W."
The sentiments of the governess are
not on record.-Harper's Weekly.
Droped Not Dressed.
Seldom it is that a French woman
is visible before 1 o'clock, and then,
if she leaves her room, it is to bo hud

goods that give ber the look of a
fairy, too light and airy for earth.
Bernhardt and Amelia Hives, the two
women who have stood in their re
spective countries for the esthetic in
dress, adopted tho stylo of draping
tho figure in a loose, light material
which was very becoming. Instead
of cutting out a ^norning robe from
the regulation pattern and sewing it
in seams, they took the goods and
gathered it? around the neck and pro
vided armholes for it. They draped
them long and loose aud caught them
here and there with fancy ornaments.
Bernhardt's dresses were generally in
blue, while Amelia Bives chose the
more picturesque white.-Chicago
New veilings are exhibited in some
of the shops. Smaller dots set closer
together than they were last winter
are shown. Gray, white and blue
silk mesh with black or white small
dots is effective. White with black
dots and black with white dots are
seen again. A decidedly new veiling
is a fine black silk -.net with small
motifs of cream or white lace scattered
over it. Tho effect is different from
that of the ordinary lace veil and the
edge is finished by a very narrow
border of cream or white embroidery.
Another odd veil has small black
chenille dots set close together in
groups of five, the groups set about
their own width apart. The edge is
finished by a triple row of chenille
dots, set close together in straight
lines. Ked and blue veiling, with
fine criss-cross bars an I squares of
tulle between the spaces, resembling
some of the grenadine dress materials,
are more curious than pretty, and will
probably attain no great popularity.
As a rule Corsican women are not
beautiful, though some of the young
and middle aged are decidedly hand
some. Bravo and beautiful, we find
them on occasions developing into
heroines of the truest type. A Cor
sican woman is destined to be a do
cilo wife, to work for lier husband,
bring up his children and keep his
castle in good working order.
On entering a shepherd's 1 ut, a
peasant's cottage or the doctor's
apartment one will find the woman
kind keeping discreetly in the back
ground. At mealtimes wife and
daughter do not sit down with the
guests, they being either entirely ab
sent or acting as attendants! A
woman takes pretty nearly the heavi
est share of the day's labor and, though
sometimes allowed a voice in family
matters, is never permitted to show
au independent will or wish before
strangers. She must also obey her
lord and master's behests, but dare
not originate a single idea.
Out of doors the men go forth to
work solemnly, gunin hand,while tho
women walk behind, carrying their
heavy tools or cumbersome wood
fagots. If the happy couple have to
climb a steep hill and happen to pos
sess only one horse, it is' the man
who bestrides the beast, and- the
woman considers herself lucky by be
ing permitted to catch hold of the
stirrup leather or the horse's tail.
Miss Leiter'? Paper Crown.
That is a very in terestiug story which
relates how Mrs. Cnrzou, when little
Miss Leiter, was seen strutting up
and down a room weariug a paper
crown while she remarked, "I will be
a queen some day." The lady who
tells the story, says the Chicago Post,
adds significantly that "many a truth
is spoken in jest." All of which is
undeniably true, but at the same time
we have no special reason to believe
that the prediction has been verified
or is likely to be verified, or that little
Miss Mary prophetically gav9 utter
ance to a spavkliug truth. "We sup
pose there has never been a little girl
in this delightful city of Chicago who
has not?t onetime or another adorned
herself with a paper crown and an
nounced that she was going to be a
queen. Little girls have a weakness
for this sort of thing, and yet we have
no recollection that any young woman
of our town has ever ascended a
throne, save for temporary or unim
portant purposes. Somebody has said
that ail American women are queens.
Of course, not even the women them
selves believe such wild hyperbole,
but it is a gallant remark, and if it
makes them feel good for the time be
ing there is no objection to the phrase.
Let the little girls play with their
paper crowns and utter their mock
solemn predictions, for we are making
history nowadays, and Cuba or Hawaii
or the Philippines may yet ask for a

The Blouse Waist.
The blouse waist is more popular
than ever this season, and it is a ques
tion whether this most convenient and
apparently indispensable, article bi
toilet will now ever be given up. For
travelers it is simply a necessity. With
a couple of Bkirts auy number ol
blouses may be made suitable for vari
ous occasions. There is the white
muslin blouse, either plain or em
broidered ; the figured organdie blous?,
which is not so pretty; the pique
blouse, trimmed with light insertion;
tiffeta and China silk blouses, etc
Half a dozen of those useful waists
aro none too many to own.
Blouses, however, are not, .and
never will be, full dr?ss,and therefore
will never take the olace of the prc tty
toilets with waist and skirt belonging
together. These seem to grow pret
tier aud prettier as the sensor ad
vances. A new importation which
was greatly admired the other day at
an outdoor function had the upper
part of the skirt cut of a deep, vivid,
rose colored Liberty satin; this was
cut half way down the skirt and
rounded up in front to a point where
a huge applied Louis XV bow, with
long, wavy ends, made in rose colored
mousseline de soie, entirely covered
the front of the tnnic. The same
niching finished the edge of the satin,
the rest of the skirt consisting of an
accordion plaited flounce of the mous
seline de soie. The waist is a blouse
of satin, made to open in a very^retty

Ground Done for Poultry.
It is not pretended that ground*
bone is of any great value to fowl?
that have the benefit of ah ?xtensiv?
grass range, bjlt lt in of Undoubted
value when they are confined either
wholly or partially, and is one ?f th?
essentials to Biiccess iii winter ?eed

boue-making material-, and couUter
ftcta a?y tendeu?y to diarrhoea iii
poultry at any age. It also tends to
postpone the brooding instinct so great
a detriment when eggs ar? d?sir?d.
Burned bone is sometirhe? used, but
'is not to be compared iu value to
ground bone. The latter should be
tine, usually the size of coarse oat
meal, and mixed with all the soft food
given,usually with the morning mash.
One ounce to every pint of dry meal
before moistening, is about the right:
proportion to feed. Ground bone
should notbe confounded with crushed
raw bone, which is fed to laying hens
with groat advantage occasionally, but
which is too concentrated to form any
cons;derable part of the daily ration,
as is udvised with ground bone.
Retaining Soil Moisture.
The well known method of soil cul
tivation for conserving moisture is
followed by all intelligent fanners who
operate on a large scale, but it is not
easy to practico when several crops
have to be taken from the soil each
year; or ii) other words, where inten
sive farming is practiced. Such farm
ers know that while it is comparatively
easy to conserve moisture in loamy
soils it is difficult to accomplish the
purpose by the same practice with
sandy or gravelly HO?IS, The best
method of conserving moisturei?soil?
of this character is by the use of v?g^
etublo matter incorporated with the
Boil. Coarse manure is used foi mulela
ing and when the crop ia removed tho
laud is Bown to crimson clover, rye or
other similar crop turned nuder, and
vegetable matter supplied in that
maimer. Soi', of the character indi
cated, in the absence of a system of
irrigation, should be filled with humus
by tho use of the plowed under crops
mentioned, to enable it to absorb aud
retain all the moisture possible. Dur
ing the early part of the summer the
plants should be thoroughly cultivated
and frequently, aud in the late season
the soil, not shaded by the growing
plants, should be covered" with a
coarse mulch of straw manure, which
will assist in the retention of the
moisture and also add to the fertility
of the soil:
Factory Tests for Cheese.
In order to protect himself as well
as his conscientious patrons, the mod
ern cheesemaker must be able to judge
with accuracy the quality of milk
brought to his factory. Smelling and
tasting are the most common methods,
but it is readily seen that neither one
nor both of these methods can be used
satisfactorily. For the purpose of es
timating vapidly the acidity of milk,
the Wisconsin station has devised a
method called the alkaline tablet test
which may be readily ' used as the
milk is delivered at the factory.
The apparatus consists of a white
t . cup, a four, six or eight ounce
bottle and a small measure with a
capacity of about one-half ounce. A
solution of the tablets is made by
placing as many in the bottle as ia in
dicated by its capacity in ounces. As.
the milk is delivered at the factory the
measure is filled from the weigh can,
and poured into the white cup. The
same or another measure is filled
twice with the tablet solution and
emptied into the cup of milk. The.
liquids are mixed by giving the cup a
quick rotary motion. If the milk re
mains white it contains more than
two-tenths of one per cent, of acid.
If it is colored, even a faint shade of
pink, after being thoroughly mixed,, it
contains a less amount of acid and is
therefore BO far as acidity goes suit
able for the manufacture of cheese.

largely a matter of prefer?nc?; Great
bare must be takeii in putting th?
hi?t?riaifl iii w?iole to See that clos?
packing is secured about ? the sid?sj
and ?sp?ciaUy iii the corn?rs, if th?
silo is rectangular; Cut material
packs itself tb ? cevtairi extent, but it
should also be well tramped down in
the course of filling:
Tb g?t the best silag? and the least
loss it is important that the silo is at
least 24 feet deep and 30 feet is still
better. Next to the proper depth of
silage the lining and doors are tho
most important. Some method should
"be employed to make the doors air
tight, as the ensilage spoils very rap
\Xy when brought in contact with the
air. To make a B?'O absolutely tight
is next to an impossibility, but there
are several ways to make it nearly so.
The inside may bo lined with galvan?
ized iron, but this does not seem to
withstand the action of the acids.
"When paper is used between two or
more layers of board it should be of
some Waterproof quality. Shingles
aro sometimes used, but are not, as a
rule, very satisfactory. Brick linings
when plastered with cement are very
satisfactory. Grout or concrete link
ings are also good; , ?
The all-wbod round silo is perhaps
the most common type} and hlsb is
?boiit ris durabl? asanyforthe?nidurit
of money it takes to build it. Such a
silo can be lined with four-inch matched
flooring and made fairly tight, if the
boards are driven together with a very
thick paint or thick coal tar between
them, The numerous ways iu which
silos can be built give every man a
chance to select the kind lie thinks
best suited to his needs. No matter
what th? type, all should be covered
with something to keep out the air, if
the silage is to sta?d for auy length of
time. Som? method of ventilation
should also be provided in order to
keep the lining from rotting. If these
few simplo points are observed there
is no reasou why every farmer should
not have a silo aud be able to keep
ensilage in a satisfactory manner.

Tho Soldier Boy?' Pajamas.
Jack Burke of Atchison writes that
the volunteers-at Camp Alger receutly
received hurry orders to pack uj> and
move. The Atchison boys were
ready first of all. The last to be
ready were from Emporia and Topeka,
and they were so burdened down with
sheets, pajamas, etc., that th;-y fairly
staggered into line. Ono Emporia
boy had seventeen nightshirts strap
ped to his back, and was afraid to
leave one behind for fear tho sweet
heart who made it would hear of it
and be mortally offended. The Em
poria company is known as the
"Nightshirt" company, and every To
peka man is called "sheets" for short.

SQUIRE LEATHER'S BOY.
Proof Positive That Hezekiah Was a Chip ot
the Old Biotic:
"Speaking of the boy" who used his
sister's tooth brush tb paint his double:
ripper sled; and forgot to wash out the"
paiut before bb returned it to her
room," observed the Major,/'reminds
mc that you never can tell, what ?
hoy will* do. There was ?ld ;Squir?
Leathers', boy Hezekiah-the 'Squire
thought he couldn't depend on him,
but he found he could!.
" 'Squire Leathers had a fine water
melon patch, of which he was very
proud. But he annually lost a good
many melons through the raids of
tramps and other predatory persons.
At last he got mad. and vowed he
would protect his own interests. So
he loaded up his shotgun pretty near
to the muzzle with birdsbot and gave
lt to Hezekiah, and sent him Out td
stand guard ohb hight; The boy
made Some objections td going; nnd
the 'Squire got it into his head that
he was afraid. He rebuked him
roundly, told him that he was un:
worthy to bear the proud hame of
Leathers and pushed him out into th?i
night. Then the 'Squire went grumb
ling to bed. in half ah hour he got
up, saying that he was going but to
test the boy.
" "Tain't necessary to make a tnrnal
fool of yourself, Jonas,' says his wife;
'I admit lt.' 'Admit, he's a coward?'
says the 'Squire. 'No; admit you're
a fool,' says his wife. 'Mebbe I am,'
says the 'Squire. 'But that boy's a
coward. He takes after your family.
I'll show you he's afraid to pull the
trigger,' and the 'Squire went out
doors and Into the melon patch. Heze
kiah was In one corner behind a
burdock, walting for game. The
strange figure attracted his attention
through the darkness, and he gave it
the left barrel. The doubting parent
jumped ten feet Into the air, howled
murder, and ran fot the fence. Heze
kiah's instructions had been to
make a clean job, ?o he let his worthy
father have the other barrel. This
settled the 'Squire, and he crawled
to the house and sent for the doctor*
listening meanwhile to remarks ap
propriate to the occasion from his lov
ing and dutiful wife. The old mad
was always a little lame after this,
and It used to be a pathetic thing to
hear him tell the Story of the occur
rence, and nt the end shake his head
sadly ns he observed: 'I seen when it
was too late that what I ought to 'a'
done was to *a' sent the hired man
out to test that boy. Hezekiah was a
true Leathers, after all.' "-Harper'3
