The Monkey and the Monkey Dolls.
"Miss Angeline," called Therese,
"there's an organ-man at the gate with
a real, live monkey I"
Angeline jumped up so quickly that
she nearly upset her doll-house, and
ran ont upon the veranda. She loves
animals dearly, and when she saw the
odd little creature at the end of a long
string come bowing and bobbing up the
gravel walk toward her, she laughed
alond In delight
"Mamma! mamma!" she cried.
"Come and see the funny monkey!"
Angeline's mamma came to the door,
and when she saw the monkey ste
could not help laughing, too. He was
dressed in a long scarlet gown, belted
around his waist, and a little black
velvet cap with a gilt bend, which he
took off when he made his odd little
The organ-man was playing "Dixie,"
and th* monkey began dancing to the
music very prettily. When he had
done dancing he turned a half-dozen
somersaults in the grass, rolling over
and over like a ball. Then he sprang
up, made a very low bow to Angeline
and her mamma, and hold out his cap
for a penny. When Angeline had drop
ped the penny Into the cap he took lt
out quickly with his little black fingers,
and stuffed it into a tiny pocket In the
skirt of his gown. Then he climbed on
Angeline's Inp and looked in her face
with round, black, solemn eyes.
"How much he looks to know,
ma'am!" said Therese.
"loo much!" answered Angeline's
marama, b it neither Therese nor An
geline quite knew what she meant.
"Mamma," cried Angeline, suddenly,
"I wonder If he would like to see my
monkey-doll! Would you show it to
Therese ran to fetch the doll. It was
almost as large as the live money, and
looked as like him as one pea to an
other. And when the monkey saw It,
what do you suppose he did? First,
he caught it In his queer little arms,
stared into Its black ?ace, felt its bead
eyes and its small, wrinkled cheeks,
and hugged lt with all his might to the
breast of his scarlet gown. Then he
held lt at arm's length, looked lt quite
over again, and kissed it twice on its
odd, puckered month!
When his master called the monkey,
he tried to 'carry the doll with him,

Cleaning np tho Su?ar.
A man "hould own his sugar orchard
if ho -wants to make best quality of
sugar. Whan he hires one he does
not know what condition things were
left in the year before, but if he hires
he should hire the same one year after
year. The first thing to do would be
to cut ont all underbrush, especially
the evergreens. This will cause the
ground to freeze deeper and let the
sun in among the trees in the sugar
season. Cold makes sweet sap while
sunshine makes sap mu. The less
brush in the way the faster the sap
can be gathered. Some roads are
good to have, as they will save time
and temper. In a small sugar place
that is always gathered by hand a
footpath will do. A road once made
in a sugar place will last a lifetime if
not used for other purposes. The
sooner the sap is gathered, boiled
down and made into sugar the better
the quality of sugar.
Ufe for Bona*.
Someone suggests that there is a
use for bones as a feed for j sultry, as
an egg producer-especial' . as they
can be thus employed, an' yet come
in, in large part, as f. fertilizer,
through the poultry manure. Let the
farmer take his choioe and get all out
of the bones that he can. If he has a
bone mill, or a meat chopper, and eau
reduce the bones small enough for
poultry to readily swallow tho pieces,
this will be the most economical plan.
Bones, especially fresh bones, from
the kitchen, are a capital egg pro
ducer. It will pay ovou to beat the
fresh bones line with an old axe, if
oue has no bone mill, and feed them
thus to the fowls. But the mill is far
better, and every farmer keeping a
few dozen hens can afford to purchase
one of these mills. It is the best use
to make of the fresh bones. But
large, dry and hard boues, such as
those of cattle and horses, had better
bo reduced with ashes. Though, of
course, even the driest raw boue,
ground hue, is readily eaten by fowls,
as every farmer knows who has ever
applied raw bone as top dressing to
Growing; Grain Fee-Is.
It is sometimes a problem whether
it would bo cheaper to buy commer
cial fertilizers and grow more grain to
feed out, or to buy more graiu. and
make more and richor manure, and
therefore have less need to buy fer
tilizers. The solution of the question
Beems to depend primarily upon the
cheapness of land and labor. If a
man in New England, especially near
a manufacturing town, had to hire
land and hire labor, we think he could
employ them to better advantage in
growing other crops for sale than to
grow any kind of grain for feeding
purposes. But the man who has
plenty of idle land yielding but little,
and help that he must keep the year
through, either members of his family
or that he must hire to do other work,
we think can grow corn cheaper than
he can bny it, if he so cares for his
fodder as to get full value for it for
dairy stock. Corn grows well upon
soil that is not well adapted to some
other crops and grows without the
heavy manuring that would be re
quired for market garden crops, while
it is not exhausting to the soil, but
leaves it in better condition to grow
almost any crop than it was before the
corn was grown.
To Deo troy Moles.
Some people clair- to believe that
moles are a greater benefit than an
injury, for the reason that they are
almost wholly insectivorous in their
diet. This X dispute. A mole will
destroy seed corn after it has beeu
anointed with tar from the southern
pitch pines, while every other known
animal and fowl, including crows, will
pass it by. I think the great majority
of farmers will favor their extermina
tion. I therefore submit the fol low
ing cheap and effective plan to destroy
Mix a proper quantity (no particular
rule) of arsenic with corn dough,make
a small hole into their roads here aud
there and deposit a l?mp of dough in
each, about tho size of a marble.
Cover the holes with any convenient
substance, snch as clods of dirt, to ex
clude the light.
Some years ago I bad a piece of land
badly infested with moles that I
wished to plant to 'sweet potatoes.
Success depended ou first gettiug rid
of the mole?. As a matter of experi
ment I concluded to try corn dough
and arsenic, as above. Two applica
tions resulted in a virtual extermina
tion. Some of the moles came out of
the ground and soon after died.
Other poisons may answer as well,but
I know that arsenic can be relied on.
The best time to apply is perhaps ia
early spring, soon after the moles
leave their winter quarters.-Bryan

Peut* or the Berry Patch.
A great amount of work and watch
ful care are necessary to make the
berry patch profitable. First corned
the strawberry with its disease and in

blight, which is injurious to both
plant and fruit. It first shows itself
npou the leaves in reddish, purple
spots which soon turn lighter colored
and finally white. Upon these spots
a spore ;s formed which spreads the
disease through the summer, while in
the fall and winter a form is produced
which infects the new leaves the fol
lowing spring. Thus the fruit is de
prived of its nourishment, and in some
instances crops have been ruined.

The worst insect pest is that nuis

often very destructive, as it works on
both roots and crown in feeding. The
roots are often attacked also by the

borer. The latter bores into the
crown and down throngh the heart
into the roots, usually killing the
plant. The best remedy for this pest
is to change the bed often, not raising
more than two crops on the same
Pests of the raspberry and black

infested canes are found we cut and
bnrn and so end the trouble. The
insect pests are many, among which
are the true crickets, the red-necked
agrilus and the raspberry saw-fly.
The crickets weaken the canes by
making a row of lougitndinal punct
ures filled with eggs for several inches
down the canes. These eggs are long
and often mistaken for grubs.
The surest way to get rid of them is
to cut and burn the canes containing
them. The faw-fly is a green, hairy
slug, which works on the under side
of the leaf, resembling it so olosely
that one has to look carefully to de
tect them. They cut irregular holes
in the leaf, often nearly perforating it,

When one stops to consider all the
numerous diseases and pests with
which the fruitgrower has to contend,
it is not surprising that so many fail.

True Cause or Fentlier Entine*
An Iowa poultry grower, Mr?. f\
M. Jarvis, sends an account of loather
eating in which the disorder is de
scribed as contagious, and she ascribes
the trouble to the presence of a min
ute parasite which spreads from fowl
to fowl and which she thinks waa
probably introduced through purchase
from an infected flock.
Concerning this mite, a recently
published leaflet of the board of agri
en Un re of Great Britiau gives the fol
lowing description: Feather-eating in
poultry is duu to a minute parasitic
mite (Sarcoptes laevis) atthe roots of
the feathers. It is generally supposed
to be due to a "vicions habit," nil"
morons absurd th?orie", such as idle
ness and thirst, having been pnt for
ward to account for it. There are
two kinds of feather eating, viz, "Belf
feather-eating" and tho plucking of
other birds' feathers. The former is
chiefly due to the mites living upon
and irritating the roots of the quills.
The form on the fowl makeB its ap
pearance nbont April and is most pre
valent in spring and summer. The
mites cnn he easily found among the
white powdery matter at the base of
the quill. The minnte young are
transmitted during copulation. The
fowl? plnck ont the feathers to destroy
the irritation caused by the mites at
their base. Lice, aUo, aro partly ac
countable for feather-plucking. The
birds in picking off the mites and lice

Enlarging tho Herds of Live Stock.
The average farmer who raises
grain, fruits or vegetables, or makes a
point of mixed farming, cannot do
better than to give more attention to
increasing the live stock on the farm.
No farm should be without a fair
number of cattle, sheep, swine, horses,
poultry and general live stock. It is
not necessary to enter into the busi
ness of raising live stock for the mar
kets so that it will interfere with the
general farming, but on general prin
ciples there is so much waste on a
farm which animals alone can con
sume profitably that it is essential for
the highest success that live stook o'
one kind or another should be kep.

There Are Several Kinds Duo to Very
Thore are several kinds of toothache,
due to very different causes, and as
not all sorts are capable of relief by
the same means, it is useful to be able
to distinguish among them.
One form of toothache is due to dis
ease of the tooth itself, another to
disease of tho parts about the tooth,
and still another to neuralgia of the
nerves, the teeth themselves being
perhaps perfectly sound.
The most common toothache is
caused by congestion or inflammation
of the pulp of a tooth. The pulp is a
soft material filling the centre of the
tooth and serving as a bed for the
nerve and the blood vessels. When
the blood vessels are charged, as they
are in case of congestion or inflamma
tion, the pulp is com pressed, sin ce tho
hard walls of the tooth prevent ex
pansion, and so the nerve is pressed
upon aud becomes painful.
The ache so caused is fierce and
throbbing (a jumping toothache). It
is worse when the sufferer stoops or'
lies down, and is increased by contact'
with cold or hot water or food, with'
sugar or salt, or with the air. The

Severe toothache may be caused by
inflammation of the socket of the
tooth, which may go on to au abscess,
with swelling of the face and great
distress. In this case the tooth is
sore when tapped or pressed upon.
The pain is severe and continuous
not intermittent as in inflammation
of the pulp-and is usually relieved a
little by cold, but aggravated by heat
Sometimes relief is afforded by cold
applications to the cheek; but of
course a dentist should be consulted
as early as possible in order that the
inflammation may be controlled before
it results in tho formation of an

Ono? l'rcmlf? Inhabited Europe.
Excavations in southern Germany
have just established the fact that in
prehistoric times Europe was inhab
ited by pygmies. Strangely enough
the discovery of actual and convincing
testimony to that effect in southern
Germany has been announced almost
simultaneously with the news of simi
lar discoveries in Switzerland and in
the Pyrenees. So now there is proof
that Herodotus aud Homer were not
"yellowing" when they told of dwarfs
that lived in wooded hills aud cav-ea
far north of Borne and Greece.
The skeletons which have beon

placed into an ordinary museum

55 inches, and many are smaller.
There is no doubt that they are the

THE OLD ARMOR MAKER.
Lon; Before the Civil War He Wove Coats of
Mall as a Side Line.
"About two years ago," said a Poy
dras street business man, "there died
at the Charity Hospital an eccentric
old German, who once upon a time fol
lowed the queerest trade in the world.
He was a maker of coats of mall. Long
before the war he had a little jewelry
shop on the north side of Canal street,
and the coat-of-mall business was a
sort Of private side line. The armor he
then made was composed of small
links of very hard steel, woven to
gether flo compactly that one could not
thrust even a pin through the Inter
stices, and lt was said that the 'coats'
would tum either a knife or bullet.
They were fashioned something like a
sleeveless undershirt, and were intend
ed to be worn immediately beneath the
outside garment. In those days the
use of such devices was popularly at
tributed to fellows who wanted to se
cure an unfair advantage in duelling,
and the reputation of wearing one un
der any circumstances was fatal to a
reputation for courage. Consequently
the old German didn't go to any pains
to exploit his business, and his cus
tomers must have come to him through
many devious channels. I knew the
old chap quite well when I was a boy,
and I have often seen him putting the
mall together in his little back room.
He got the links from Germany and
they came In long single-strand chains,
which he fastened together with small
steel rings, thus building up a fabric
like knitting a stocking. The coats
were made over a wooden form,
shaped like a man's torso, and were
After the war broke out a good many
men bought them openly, as a legit!
mate protection, and for a while the
old man had more business than he
could attend to. I went Into the army
and lost sight of him until some years
after peace was declared. When I en
countered him one day, working as a
journeyman watchmaker, I asked at
once whether he made any more chain
armor, and he laughed and said It had
gone out of fashion. I believe, how
ever, that he used to still make a coat
now and then for some crank up to
the time of his death. Of late years
he quit active business and lived In
quiet retirement out n?nr St. John's
bayou."-New Orleans Times - Demo
The Weekly Newspaper.
In commenting on the low subscrip

newspaper, the Atlanta Constitution
That many weekly newspaper pub
Ushers have committed a grave mis
take in dropping their prices of sub
scription, must now bo as evident to
themselves as it is to others. No
doubt the idea was caught from an im
pression that weekly issues from
large cities were sold at a lower prioe,
and that there was a rivalry to be met.
In the first place there was no rival
ry, since that was a physical imposai
bility. The weekly newspaper is the
chronicle of the local community, just
as the city paper is that of the whole
country. It would be as preposterous
for the city paper to attempt to fill
the field of the local paper as it would
be for the latter to replace the former.
Their aims and missions are different,
and in no way can they displace each
Tho weekly newspaper results from
the existence of a local oommunity
which has business ventures, politioal
ideas and social ventures of its own.
The more important these interests are
the more perfectly the newspaper be
comes their exponent, the more indis
pensible it is to the people. There
fore, a community which will not sup
port its local newspaper furnishes but
mighty poor campaigning ground for
the city paper. The latter comes in
as an addenda to a good work which
is already going on, as an evidence of
a sharpened appetite for reading.
The first duty of every progressive
community is to have its local newspa
per, which should be liberally sup
ported, and which should not be held
in competition with any city publica
A poor representation would reflect
upon the town; a good appearance
gives the town character abroad.
What, then, does the community owe
the publisher? Certainly it owes him
that return which would have to be
given to the lawyer, the commercial
man or any other public servant.
The weekly newspaper publishers
should awake to their mission and in
sist npon the support which is their
due. The town which does not sup
port its local paper has no claim to
consideration either at home or abroad.

CHILLS ARD FEVER
The Best Prescription Is Grove's
Tasteless Chill Tonic.
The Formula Is Plainly Printed on Every Bottle?
So That the People May Know Just
What They Are Taking.
Imitators do not advertise their formula
knowing that you would not buy their medi
cine if you knew what it contained. Grove's
contains Iron and Quinine put up in correct
proportions and is in a Tasteless form. The
Iron acts as a tonic while the Quinine drives
the malaria out of the system. Any reliable
druggist will tell you that Grove's is the
Original and that all other so-called "Taste
less" chill tonics are imitations. An analysis
?f other chill tonics shows that Grove's is
superior to all others in every respect. You are
not experimenting when you take Grove's-its
superiority and excellence having long been
established. Grove's is the only Chill Cure sold
throughout, the entire malarial sections of the
United States. No Cure, No hay. Price, 500
INO matter how pleasant your surroundings,
health, good health, is the foundation for en

patris than all other diseases together, and when
you get a good dose of bilious bile coursing

of people are doctoring for chronic ailments that
started with bad bowels, and they will neve?
get better till the bowels are right. You know
how it is-you neglect-get irregular-first
suffer with a slight headache-bad taste in the
mouth mornings, and general "all gone" feeling
during the day-keep on going from bad to
worse untill the suffering becomes awful, life
loses its charms, and there is many a one that
has been driven to suicidal relief. Educate your
bowels with CASCARETS. Don't neglect the
slightest irregularity. See that you have one
