Exercising Queenly Authority.
The National Magazine tells this
story of Queen Wilhelmina: "Two of
the court children were missing one
day and grave fears were entertained
j .as to the probability of their being kid
napped. A prolonged and careful
search resulted in finding no traces of
them and two attendants were ar
rested as suspicious characters. On
further inquiry it was learned that
these two children were last seen play
ing with the little queen the previous

whereabouts, she said that they were
locked up in au old cellar that could
be reached from the courtyard. It
seemed they refused to do her bid

she had imprisoned thom for rebel

A story is told of a woman who was

to work to make money, and, though
never having had an oversupply of this

fortable circumstances. She had some
wealthy friends, at whose extrava
gances she hal often exclaimed, say
ing, ''You throw away enough for
some people to live on."
When she became penniless, in try

her independence her mind turned to
this so-called waste of her friend?.
She asked them if they would let her
have what they threw away, feeling
that this was not asking charity. So

Tho Younger Generation'? Clothes.
Consider the younger generation,
howifis growing this winter most
rapidly into very advanced tailor made

most noticeable, for they are as close
of skirt and as braided of body as
their elders. As to the small boy.
there are few articles of his father's
wardrobe he does not possess in min
iature. It is true, of an evening he
only wears a dinner jacket, as claw
hammer coattails are net yet his, but
very impressive is his little bell
ci owued silk hat aud the amply frocked
coat in which he trots to church, to
family weddings, and to such func

to participate in. The military activ

this, with a dark blne^ fatigue cap,
braided in black, gives a fair idea of
what the approved autumn school snit
should be. Straight buttoned dark
blue cloth coats, with a couple of

over these sitits on chilly days, and to
furtheremphasize the exceeding man

Gowns for tho Trousseau.
If the saying is true that all the
world loves a lover.it is also true that
all women are interested in wedding
trousseaux, no matter whether the
outfit is to be for'themselves or for
somebody else; aud certainly every
woman who is to be married wishes,
very naturall", to provide a suitable
outfit for herself. It is supposed that
the trousseau shall contain what is
snfficieut for 'a year at least; but of
late it has been rather the fashion for
women not to buy gowns enough for
a year, but simply to buy what is
necessary for the time being, and put
the money aside to buy what will bo
necessary the coming season. This is
vastly more sensible now that fashions
change so often; and not only the fash
ion in gowns, but iu materials as well.
Lingerie does not chauge so every
year and consequently a good stock of
it eau be laid iu. Pretty underwear
is something every woman likes to
have, and should be well provided
with. "When buying a trousseau the
best plan is to find out just how much
money can be afforded, and then what
is necessary should be bought* first,
leaving for the last.what might bo
called luxuries. It is very pleasant
to own two or three silk gowns, but
they are not a necessity. A street
gown, oh tho contrary, is a necessity,
as well as one or two smart and be
coming gowns for house wear, and at
least one gown that is suitable to wear
i at evening entertainments. Thero ?3
no greater mistake made than for
young people to give up their social
life as soon as they are married; for
while they are sufficient to each other
for a time, it is but human for them
to wish for the companionship of
somebody else after awhile, and then
they will want to be entertained as
well as to entertain.
Every woman who can afford it
should have a wedding gown. It need
not be pf silk or satin, or any of ^be
more expensive materials, but it is
prettier to have it in white, aud to
wear with it a veil. There are many
inex2Jensive white materials that can
be bought now that are extremely
pretty, and the gown need not be
elaborately made.-^Harper's Bazar.
>"o "SnperflnowB Women."
The government has published a
map showing for each state in the
Union the number of unmarried men
and unmarried women over 20 years
With a peculiarly childlike faith the
census officials believe they know the
exact ages of all the "unattached fe
males," and accordingly they are
grouped in five-year periods. In that
particular tho statistics are manifestly
untrustworthy, but apart from that
the figures are absolute.
And they are very astonishing. They
show definitely that the "surplus
woman" is a myth. There is no sur
plus of women. There is a shortage
of 2. 200,000. There are in the United
States 5,427,767 bachelors over 20
years of age and only 3,224,494 un
married women above that age.
But this is the least astonishing part
of the matter. The chart shows that
in absolutely every state there is au
excess of bachelors over maidens.
Even in Massachusetts, where tra
dition fixes tho home of the "surplus
woman," there are 226,084 available
bachelors and only 219,255 spinsters.
In Rhode Island there are 2 per
cent, more bachelors than- unmarried
women, in New Hampshire 9 per
cent., in Connecticut 20 per cent., in
New Jersey and Virginia 22 per cent.,
while in Idaho the excess of bachel
ors over maids is 1000 per cen t., there
being 16,584 unmarried men and only
1426 women. Wyomiug and Arizona
closely follow, while all the far west
ern states have reason to regard
woman as one of the "precious met
als" because of her scarcity.
But tho one fact of greatest interest
is that there is in the country not ono
single state which has not men enough

Wart Wimrtt Dying with Hin Secret.
Uncle John Pate, one of the last of
the race of aute-bellum negroes left in
this vicinity, is dying. He belonged
before the war to the Pate estate, and
is now 71 years of age. Uncle John
nie has always been considered oue of
the characters of the town. He was
a racehorse rider in his younger days,
and in a moment of frankness told a
white friend that he only "threw" one
race in his life, and he was paid to do
that. Uncle Johnnie has always been
looked upon with awe b" the other
colored people of the city. This is
because he bears a well-established
reputation as a "conjuror." It is a
matter ol' local tradition that when
Uncle Johnnie does a "wart talk"

Uncle Johnnie has always kept his
"wart talk" a secret. He says it was
transmitted to him by an ancestor.and
that it has been in the family since
Hain started in to colonizo Africa. He
will not accept money for his services
as a wart conjuror, and says that even
an expression of thanks will dispel the
charin. He promised to iiupa?t the
wart secret to some friend before ho
died and give the formula of "wart
talk," so that Cloverport should al
ways have a real, live "conjuror" to
conjure away its warts in au hour of

Cause of Sheep Scab.
Common sheep scab is caused by a
species of parasitic mites which are
larger than that kind which cause
Ecab on horses, cattle and other ani
mals, and is a distinct variety. This
parasite inhabits the- regions of the
body which are most thickly covered
with wool; that is, the back,the sides,
the rump and the shoulders. It is
the most serious in its effects upon the
sheep of any of the parasitic mites,
and it is the cause of the true body
scab. It is generally believed . by
sheep-raisers that there is ,but one
kind of sheep scab,but there are three
other form?, likewise caused by para
sitic mites. One of these is the sar
coptic scab, which is limited alraoet
entirely to the head. The second is
the symbiotic scab, which affects the
limbs and udder, while lastly is the
rare affection of the eyelid scab.
These forms of ?he disease appear to
be rare and of a mild nature compared
with the common body scab.
Foprthiff Apples to Cows.
We do not wonder that there is
strong prejudice against allowing
cows, and especially milch cows, to
eat apples. For the most part it is
well grounded. While it is possible
to give a mi'king cow a few dry apples
without drying up her milk percep
tibly, that is not the kind of apples
she usually gets. If the cow is in an
orchard where apples are fal^ng, she
runs every time she hears one drop
and eats it greedily, however wormy,
sour, green and bitter it may be. All
apples have some malic acid in them,
even including those that we call
"sweet." This malic acid,, together
with the tannin that is found in the
apple peel, and especi'Hy in green,
small apples, contra".s the cow's
stomach. If she eats much of such
fruit, it gives her the colic just as
surely as it does the small boy. The
cow's stomach was not made to digest
such stuff,and so.sure as it is put into
her stomach there is riot and rebellion.
Every one knows that giving vinegar
to cows, and rubbing her udder with
vinegar will dry her off. We believe
that allowing cows to eat many apples,
even if they are ripe, has a bad effect
ou their milk production. -American
Many hesitate to clip the wing on
account of an almost certain disfigure
ment that is likely to be the result.
If care it? taken in cutting, the wings
can be clipped iu such a manner that
finger of the arm tnax is norning tue
fowl. With the right baud take a
sharp pair of shears and cut the flight
fea chers, or the ones on tho outer side;
cut uutil you come to the natnral div
ision between the flight feathers and
the secondaries. The section . that
should be cut is technically known as
the "primaries." If the primaries are
cut as close to the flesh as possible
and the operator is careful not to .cut
over too far and get into the second
aries, the eflect will not be noticed
when the fowl is in its natural posi
tion. Except, in extreme cases this
will provo just as effective in restrain
ing high flyers as though the wing had
been practically cut eutirely away.
When this is not sufficient, which is
seldom the case, more clipping will be
necessary.-C. P. Reynolds in Orauge
Variety of Feed for Hogs.
I know very well that pigs cannot
be entirely fed on corn wirb profit
until they, are finished, unless they
have grass. The past 'winter. I did
not remember it until I had relearned
it at some expense. January 15 I
weighed a bunch of July and Septem
ber shoats that had been full-fed on
corn from the time they begau to eat.
The first week I fed 7 bushels of oats
and 29 bushels corn, which produced
7 1-2 pounds of pork for each bnshel
fed. The second woek 2 bushel oats
and 18 bushels c mi produced 8 4-17
pounds for each bushel fed. The third
week 8 28-29 pounds, the fourth and
fifth weeks 6 7-8 poends. No oats
were fed the fourth and fifth . weeks.
I sold part of the hogs and turned
other?, out on a pasture ranee, as they
were not doing well. They had all
the corn they would eat, but always
seemed to want sometning they could
not get. Their stomachs were worn
out aud were in a line shape for dis
ease. I weighed 18 of the thriftiest,
principally barrows. The first week
they ate 2 bushels oats and 9 1-2
busbols corn, several buckets full of
salt and ashes and tv;o or three bushels
of partly decayed apples. 1 had
noticed them chase the hens for their
droppings. Takiug the hint I wheeled
out from the hen house several bushels
which they ate ravenously. This pro
duced "'S 8-11 pounds of por i for each
bushel of grain fed.
* This gain was so large I thought I
might Lave weighed the hogs at au
unfair time. The next week I made
the circumstances of weighing like the
previous week. The shoats showed a
gain of 12 1-2 pounds for each, bushel
of grain fed. Quite a .quantity of
ashes, apples and droppings were
given. After the hogs had eaten a
part of they would return at once to
corn. There aro certain elements in
these feeds that aid digestion. The
hogs I turned on pasture range and
gave a limited amount, of com have
made a great improvement.-J. B.

Mn kinT tho Best of Corn Stalks.
Corn-cutting time never comes
around without making the writer
smile at the ideas which prevailed
among farmers when and where he-was
a boy. The first of corn cutting was
always "topping" it, so as to secure
fresh and green the top part of the
stalks with tbe tassel. This part-being
fine and small, it was supposed could
bc eatou better than the larger stalks
below the ear. Then, as all the val
uable part of the stalk wan supposed
to ba gathered, tba ears were left to
ripen ou the long.butts,and after they
were hushed stock was turned ia to
pick out what they could. AB by that
time frosts had cut; the leaves and
ruptured the stalks, they were then
of little more value than dry woody
fibre, as most of their juices had dried
out- Naturally enough, with only the
?upper third of the corn stalk saved aa
being worth keeping, corn stalks aa
food for stock were little thought of,
and not considered nearly as good tts
All this suddenly changed wheri
farmers began tho cut corn from the
field for soiling cows. Though they
broke off the ears of corn so as to not
make the food too rich, the cow al
ways seized the corn stalk, not by its
butt and still less by its tip. S!?e
would grasp the stalk with her tong*-**}
just where the ear was broken off,
draw it into her month and double ir
up, tuen' chewiug vigorously both ways
until the taste did not suit her, when
she would bite off a part of butts and
the tassel, aud let them drop ont of
her mouth on the grouud or in the
,manger. * If the stalk was not turned
to woody fibre at the butt, very little
of the lower part of it would bo thrown
out. The tassel and some part of the
stalk below it would, however, always
be left uueaton, thus expressing the
cow's practical judgment that this was
the "least valuable and least palatable
?part of the stock. . .
In eating corn stalks the cow knows
what is best for her. It behooves men
to leam from her if they would feed
her seusibly. Just at the time flint
corn begins to glaze, and most of its
substance is in the milky stage, the
stalk is sweet and full of juices down
to the root. But immediately after
thia the lower part of the stalk hard
ens. * That cuts off most of the sap
from the root, and the sooner after
this the corn is cut the better the
stalks will . be. Experiments have
shown, too, that if corn cutting is de
layed after this there is very little, if
any, gain iu the weight of grain. Tho
juices in the stalk and tue carbon
elaborated from the leaves continue to
fill ont the grain on the car, perhaps
not as well as they would bofore the
corn was cut, but enormously better
thau they could if the leaves or stalks
had been frostbitten.
The safest rule, therefore, is to cut
corn any time after the surface has
glazed, and especially if there seems
danger that frost will scorch and brown
the leaves, thus at once stoppug their
further use in helping to deposit starch
in the grain. "When corn has been
frostbitten before cutting the leaves
have their sap vessels ruptured, and
this poisons the sap, ofteu causing the
stalks to turn sour. Stalks thus in
jured cannot be kept in any way, ex
cept by cutting them and packing so
closely in tho silo that they will be ex
posed only to the fumes of carbonic
acid gas generated by their own de
composition. This is the principle of
the silo, and therefore there ida slight
ly sour taste to even the best-kept si
l?ge, and a very decidedly sour taste
to that which is put up badly.-Amer?

become fouled with the cable-chain of
another vessel, the diver can go down
and free it, and so avoid the loss of
the anchor. In many other cases a
diver supplied with the necessary out
fit may be instrumental in saving a

leaks from collisions aud other acci

Mr. Filigate of the Bombay jail de

turned the Deccar. ;;ang upon the phil
anthropic work o? :.:;i:ag impoverished
cultivators by digging new wells and
cleaning old ones. There is something
grimly humorous in the idea of em

REMEDY FOR HOG CHOLERA.
Dukcys Used Chiefly for Preparing the Im
After exparimenta extending over
'period of twenty years, and the ex
penditure of many thousands of dollars
Ihe ?nited States Government is at
last combating successfully those
most pernicious diseases, hog cholera
and swine plague. The results ob
tained by the Bureau of Animal In
dustry of the Agricultural Depart
ment, especially during the last year,
have been highly satisfactory, and the
scientists who have devoted so much
time and labor to the work feel amply
repaid' for their efforts.
Thc discovery of a serum which
renders hogs immune from the ravag
2s of cholera and plague is an impor
tant one. It means a great de.?.l to
one of the foremost American Indus
. tries, and tho benefits arising from it
ar? almost incrjculable. The propa
gation of the serum requires the use
of many animals. At the experiment
station, where it is made, there are
donkeys, cows, calves, ,mu'es and
horses, all patiently submiting to the
process of inoculation and blood
drawing. Strange as it may appear,
not a single hog is used in making
the antitoxin lluid which is such it
blessing to his family. ?logs have not
been found well adapted to the pur
pose for which the Government uses
the other animals. Donkeys are thc
favorites with the 'experimenters.
The station at Betbssda, Md... eight
miles from Washington, is a unique
institution. On tbs well kept farm
there are dozens of horses and mules
that are strangers to the plow and
harness. There- arc cows wose days
for giving milk are over, and whose
lives, in thc eyes of the scientist, are
devoted to'higher objects. The ff arm is
presided over by Dr. Ernest * C.
Schroeder, a man who, although still
young, has made a name in the scien
Dr. D. E Salmon. Chief of 1he
Bureau of Animal Industry, said a
few days ngo:
"Wc 'have used serum on 1,000 ani
mals this year and have saved over
80 per cent, of those treated. While
the treatment was going on observa
tions wore made of 1,100 hogs in other
herds not treated for the lack of
serum, and 80 per cent. died. Last
year the percentage of hogs saved
ont of 240 treated was 7r>, while in
oilier herds not treated 85 per cent,
