A House Orchid.
One of the .most popular orchids
grown for cut-flower purposes is Cy
pripedium insigne; and it is also val
uable ns a house piont, though pos
sibly seldom so grown. Its spikes of
solitary flowers on stiff stems make it
the most convenient orchid to have
about a house; and the lasting quality
of the flowers-from fuur to six weeks
.ach-makes the plant equal to mauy
that produce more flowers, but indiv
idually last! but a short time. The
quaint "ladies slipper" flowers open
a brownish yellow in color, tnrning

^vS? A Dry Summer.
This past season has shown to many
farmers who scarcely need to have
waited until now to learn the lesson,
tholimportnnce of making preparation
each year for a season when the jjrass
in the pasture will be short, cows
shrink in their milk, calves and youug
3tock grow smaller, and in both ways
a loss will be occasioned that cannot
be made up by good feeding after

butter was the highest they had the
least to sell. Those who had ensilage

tle delayed beyond the scheduled time.
l-oolc to the ColtH.
The farmer who will closely watch
his colcs-at this season of the year and
see that-all their wants are satisfied
will make money by it. Water should
be supplied several times a day and
always before feeding. By frequent
watering they will not drink so much
cold water at a time, which is some
times attended with serious results.
Seo that they have a variety of food
and at regular hours, for they know
when meal time comes os well as peo
ple do. Oats and wheat bran and
good clover hay make the best feed
for young stock, as they snpply mus
cle and bone growing material.
See that they are not exposed to
rainstorms-but that iu dry weather
they have a rnn in the paddocks and
fields. Hova warm beds for them to
lie upon when they sleep-for they
need refreshing sleep like all animals.
Keep them growing. Not a day should
pass without some growth, or what
has been fed to them has been wasted.
To get value out of the feed one must
get weight, growth, size, and if colts
'are'well fed and treated every day's
feed will increase their value.-Rocky

Benefits of the Dairy to the Soil.
Professor W. C. Latta of Purdue
experiment station, read a paper at an
Indiana dairymen's meeting in which
he said that the persistent growing
aud'selling of hay and grain without
making returns to the soil must sooner
or lat or result .in failures. It is nec
essary to concentrate the products
that' leave the farm. Butter, cheese,
cream and milk are among the most
highly concentrated products that
loaye the farm. A ton of butter, rep
resenting many tons of - hay, takes
from the farm only one-teuth the fer
tility that one ton of hay does. Com
paring the losses in soil fertility on a
100-acre dairy farm as against the
losses where the entire. crops are re
moved, we hare the following result:
As&toming that a 100-acre farm, sub
jected to a five-year rotation, viz. : 20
acres of corn, oats and wheat, and 40
acres bf hay and pasture, would raise
1000 bushels of corn,40 tons of stalks,
800 bushels* of oats, 500 bushels of
wheat, 20 tons of straw, and that the
meadows and pasture would yield two
tons of hay or its equivalent in grass
per acre, a little calculating shows that
the total amount of feed grown and the
amount of milk and butter that could
be produced from these foods is about
as follows: Total food stuffs, 200 tons;
total milk, 164 1-4 tons; total butter,
6 1-2 tons. Fertilizing ingredients:
Food stuff, 5804 pounds nitrogen,
5877* pounds potash, 2114 pounds
phosphoric acid; milk, 184 pounds ni
trogen, GI pounds potash, 66 pounds
phosphoric acid; butter, 18 1-2 pounds
nitrogen. Cash value of fertilizing in
gredients: Food stuffs, $1429.24;
milk, $379.26; butter, $2.94. These
figures are believed to be approximate
ly correct, and they speak volumes.
G row In c; Winter encumbers.
Sow the seed for raising the plants
in some warm place, and as soon as
they ar? well up, transplant into 6
inch flower pots, bury the pots in the
soil of the greenhouse up to the rim
and keep well watered with water not
too cold. It takes about five or six
weeks to raise good plants from seed.
After the house had been prepared and
properly warmed up, we set the plants
over a trench 15 indies deep, nearly
filled with fresh horse manure, 3 1-2
feetapart, one in a pot or hill. This
was about April 1. In the fall and
winter,'when they make less vine, two
plants to the hill is better, and at this
time they may be set only 3 feet apart
Now, having strung out our plants,
we run a high temperature, 100 de
crees mid-day heat will not harm them
for the first two or three days, reduc
ing the temperature to 60 degrees or
so at night After they are well
started, a mid-day temperature of 90
degrees is sufficient. Water freely
and now watch closely for lice.
As soon as the plants begin io ran,
we pnt np trellises, using galvanized
wire fastened to the supports with
small staples; placing the wires 8 or
10 inches apart from near the ground
to near the top of the house. We tie
them to tho lower wire loosely, so as'
not to girdle and kill the vines, using
the same material as in bunching
vegetables. They should be kept tied
up as fast as the shoots get big enough.
Pruning should be carefully atteuded
io. When the sun runs high and hot
it is easy to scorch the. ends of vines.

Trimming the Orchard.
The late winter is probably the best
time in the year for the trimming of
the orchard. It most certainly is the
best tim? in the year for the farmer if
his couvenience is taken into consid
eration, There is comparatively a
lull in his work at that time aud he
can give his tl ees the time necessary
to trimming thom in the right way. 1
Trimming a ti ee is one thing that
cannot be doue in a hnny. A mau
can easily cut oil' a branch, but be
canuot grow one. He must cnt off
only thu branches that require cutting
to benefit the tree, being . careful to
cut noue that will leave the trunk of
the tree exposed to the hot Bun and
wind of summer, or ono that will de
tract from the symmetry of the trees.
No two trees are of the same exact
shape and each one must be studied
individually before touching with
pruning kuife or saw. This takes
So many things must be taken into
consideration that no set rules can be
given in regard to trimming trees.
Where there are heavy winds during
the seasons when the trees uro full of
leaves aud laden with fruit, the limbs
should be kept trimmed so that not
too great a weight should be borne by
the main stems. For tho same rea
son the limbs should be closer to the
grouud. In au exposed position' tho
tree should bo rather heavier upon the
south side, and when young should be
inclined a little in that direction.
This will tend to balance the heavy
south winds and also furnish a shade
for the trunk of the tree during the
hot months of the year.
Too great care cannot be taken in
healing tho stubs of the cut limbs.
Many a line tree is ruined by the
checking of this stub. Waters will
mu into the crack thus formed and
the wood surrounding will begin to
decaj\ This will in a very short timo
reach the heart of the limb, weaken
ing it. . The life of the whole brauch,
if not the tree itself, is but the ques
tion of a year or so. Its doom is in
It should be borne in miud that tho
trimming business can easily be over
done. lt is far easier to cut a tree
than to grow one. Think well before
putting the kuife to a branch, and if
you are iu doubt as to whether you
should cut it or not-don't. Be sure
you are right and then proceed, but
better to let nature hare her own
sway than to ruin a tree by over-prun
ing. One can see and judge of the
importance of the limbs and branches
while there is no screen of leaves to
interfere with seeing all of them iu
their relative position to each other
and the tree. For that reason, if no
other, winter is'a good season for
trimming the orohard.-J. L. Irwin,

An "American Dael" at Heidelberg.
During my residence in Heidelberg
a lamentable and terrible a'lair took
place that threw a profound gloom
over the university and the entire
town. Two Germau students having
quarreled decided the earth was not
large enough for both of them to live
in, and resorted to the diabolical prac
tice called the "American duel." In
a darkened room the two young men
drew lots, having sworn that he who
drew the black ball would commit sui
cide. The uuhappy loser went to his
roem and discharged a bullet into his
breast, but missed his heart and lin
gered for several days on his death
bed; his parents were summoned by
telegraph and besought him on their
knees to disclose the name of his an
tagonist, bnt he refused aud died with
the secret in his breast. The students
not only excused his conduct, but
praised his courage, and when his re
mains were taken to the railway sta
tion to be transported to a distant
city they accompanied the funeral cor
tege with torches and music. The
students claimed he was not a sui
cide, for he was killed in au honora
ble due),and the.- maintained that his
opponent was not accessory to his
death because he shot himself; I had

Sapphires That Aren't Blue.
"It is commonly believed that thc
sapphire is known only as a gem of a
rich velvety blue in color," observed
an experienced dealer in precious
stones to - the writer the other day.
As a matter of fact the sapphir occurs
in various hues. In Ceyloi for in
stance, where the finest spe' nene ol
this gem are found, it ranger, .rom the
Boft velvety bluo to the peacock blue,
graduated in the latter to an almost
faultless white. It also occurs in
whites, greens and yellows, the latter
shade being knoivn as the Oriental
topaz, and the green the Oriental
emerald. Tho white sapphires are
often found clouded or streaked with
blue sj that many specimens are cut
which are white when looked at trans
versely, but having a bit of fine blue
tint on the under point Then there
is the red sapphire, or Ceylon ruby.
It is valued as highly as the finest
Burmese rubies. Those most highly
prized are the red pigeon blood or
Tose-red color. Some very fine sap
phires have been found in Montana
during the past ten years. The
American gems are light-blue, blue

WONDERFUL "BLOW HOLE."
Australis Has Natural Phenomenon Which
What Is known ns the "great blow
hole" has recently attracted much at
tention among tourists. It is a singu
lar rock formation of the Australian
coast, says the Philadelphia Record.
This promises to become one of thc
most famous as well ns one of the
most pleasant resorts in New South
Wales; lt ls situated on the coast some
seventy miles south of Sydney.
The centre of this district ls Kiama,
which is described hs a picturesque
and thriving town surrounded by a
rich agricultural country, and which
has been built upon an Igneous flow of
basalt that has solidified.-and crystal
lized Into huge columns of what ls
popularly called "blue stone." This
formation ls seen to perfection on tbe
west coast of Scotland and north of
Ireland at Flngal's Cave and other
places and those who are acquainted
with the rugged appearance of the
coast In these places can form a good
Idea of the appearance of the New
South Wales coast at this point.
The famous "blow hole" here situ
ated in the middle of a ro?ky headland
.running out into the sea forms a truly
wondrous sight. With each successive
breaker the ocean spray ls F?ut shoot
ing up Into the air sometimes as high
as 300 feet to 400 feet descending in
a drenching shower and accompanied
by a rumbling noise as of a distant
thunder, which can be heard for many
This "blow hole" Is a singular nat
ural phenomenon and consists of a per
pendicular hole nearly circular, with a
diameter of about ten yards across,
and has the appearance of being the
crater of an,extinct volcano. This is
connected with the ocean by a cave
about 1.000 yards in length, the sea
ward opening of which ls in all re
spects similar to Flngal's Cave in the
north of Ireland, the same perpendicu
lar basaltic columns forming the side
walls of each. Into this cave towering
waves rush during stormy weather,
and as the cave extends some distance
further Into the rock than the "Blow
Hole," on the entrance of each wave
this cavity becomes fuli of compressed
air, which, when the tension becomes
too great, blows the water with stu
pendous force up to the perpendicular.

Taking Cnre of Blnnkets.
A great deal of labor is saved by
taking proper care of blankets, When
blankets are first purchased baste a
hemmed strip of sheeting over thc
top edges. When this is soiled re
place it by another, so that the edges
of the blanket do not come against
the hands and face or accidentally
touch the floor when the bedclothet
are turned back. Air blankets very
thoroughly. At leas.t once a month,
on a clear day. wheu no wind is stir*
ring, hang thom on the Hue to air fot
twelve hours, turning them and shak
ing them free from dust at least once.
Use a little cotton counterpane ovei
the blankets at night; this is easily
washed aud does not attract dust ag
the loose meshes of a woolen blanke!
do. Use another counterpane foi
covoring the bcd in the daytime dyei
that used at night. By these means
bed blankets .may be kept aired
and will not need to be washed
oftener than ouce in two years.
It pays to use light, inexpen
sive blankets in summer,, replacing
them by tho heavy, more expensive
all wool blankets designed for winter,
or whenever tho weather demands it.
When not in use wrap up fine blan
kets carefully in c'ottou sheets and pack
them away from moths. Sachets of
lavender scattered among blankets and
bed linen are a warniug to moth's ' to
keep away when they are put in the
closet, as well au inducement to azure

How He Makes Smokeless Powder Oat of
An Ingenious way of getting a
smokeless powder out of the heads of
Japanese matches has been disclosed
In the Plllpplne Islands. A report re
ceived at the War Department, Wash
ington, from Panay, Visayan Islands,
"The robber bands which are now
devastating are badly armed and are
arrant cowards, but cruel and take no
prisoners. An illustration was given
a short time ago in the fate of three
soldiers, who, having made them
selves stupidly drunk on tuba, the dis
tilled sap of the cocoanut trees, were
left behind by the command. Their
throats were promptly cut by the bolo
"A patrol party of ten of twelve men
sent after thc stragglers, we learned
afterwards from native sources, ran
into an ambuscade of some two hun
dred insurgents, who did not even dare
to attack, for they said the country
was opbn and they would be hurt
Eight or ten Americans can go any
where, but a nan alone ls In greater
danger of being shot from ambush.
"The natives of the Vlsayas have not
many guns, but a greater need of am
munition. A curious trick has been
discovered, which shows their rascally
Ingenuity. For a long time we heard
of quantities of Japanes matches com
ing into Iloilq, and nobody could guess
why so many millions should be re
ceived. Finally lt was suggested that
the heads of these matches made a
"Experiments were made here, and
we found, by rubbing the compound
from the stick, that a practically
smokeless explosive was obtained, of
higher power than black powder, giv
ing a velocity so great that the lead
bullet stripped but even entering side
ways penetrated about five Inches for
ther into sand than was the case with
black powder, the bullet entering point
"As tho rascally Insurgents slip out
of what uniform they wear, hide their
guns and bolos, and come in dressed in
the usual white skirt and tropsers as
amigos, smiling and. friendly, they
could easily obtain all the matches
they required for the next attack."

> Ho Wondered Why.
- A speaker at a large public meeting
recently held in a London suburb had
occasion to refer to the good public
work performed by a popular magnate
who was upon the platform. After
stating the many and excellent results
of the worthy gentleman's energy and
perseverance he remarked:
"It is a great pity that every other
idle and indolent man does not follow
Then the speaker wondered why it
was that the audience smiled audibly.

An Ensign's Narrow Escape.
When Commodore Decatur, In 1815,
dictated to the dey of Algiers the terms
of a treaty with the United States,
Lieut. John Subrick was dispatched to
Washington with a copy for the ap
proval of our Government. The brig
Epervier was detailed for his transpor
tation, and he was accompanied by
Captain Lewis and Lieutenant Neill
of the navy, who bad married sisters
a few days before sailing with Com
modore Decatur for the Mediterranean,
and by Lieutenant Drury and Lieuten
ant Yarnell, who had fought with
Perry in the battle of Lake Erle. Just
before 'the brig sailed Ensign Josiah
Tattnell, who was a watch officer on
the Epervier, succeeded In Inducing an
officer on one of the other ships to ex
change places with him. as he pre
ferred to remain with the fleet A few
days later, as the Epervier passed out
of the Straits of Gibraltar, she sig
naled "All well on board." Since then
she has not been heard from. It Is an
Interesting fact that Ensign Tattnell,
who escaped the fate of his comrades,
lived to command the ram Merrimac of
the confederate navy. Since the Eper
vier went down we have lost a num
ber of vessels, but each of them can
be accounted for.-Chicago Record.
Ever Have "the blues"? Then yon

You are completely discouraged
and cannot throw off that terri
ble depression. A little work
looks like a big mountain : a
little noise sounds like the roar
of a cannon : and a little sleep is aU
yon can secure, night after night <
The truth of the matter is, your nerves have been poi
soned and weakened with the impurities in your blood. The
thing for yon to do is to get rid of these impurities just as
soon as you can.
You want a blood-purifying medicine,-a perfect Sarsapa
rilla,-that's what you want. Yoo want a Sarsaparilla that
is the strongest and best nerve tonic you can buy, too.
"The only Sarsaparilla made vndcr the personal supervision o!

in chemistry, and a graduate in medicine"

u During last year I was Buffering from nervous prostration. For weeks I grew
worse, became thin, could not sleep, had no appetite, and was in a wretched con
dition. * After taking several kinds of medicines without result, I took Aycr'a
Sarsaparilla with more than pleasing results. My appetite returned, I slept soundly,
my strength and weight increased, and now I am well and strong without the
.lightest trace of my old trouble. Indeed, I would hardly believe it possible fer
medicine to bring about euch a change in any persou."-CLARA MZAZXY, Winter
