PLOWER PICKERS OF GRASSE.
The peasant -women and girls of
Grasse, in the south of France, are
kept employed In picking and sorting
flowers for perfume, Grasse being the
centre of that industry. Violet gather
ing begins in March; jessamine, orange
blossom, rose and tuberose in May:
thr mignonette In August, and the
cassia in September. The work of
picking ls done between 5 and ll
o'clock in the morning, the remainder
of the day being spent in sorting and
picking apart the flowers. The per
fume making begins with spreading
the petals upon layers of pure lard
that covers plates of glass, and the
flower layers are renewed three or
four times before the fat has become
thoroughly saturated with the per
fume. This perfumed lard is the
"pomade" of commerce, outr of. which
are made extracts and fine pomades.

Warning Given by a Tree.
"I saw in the Star not lon?? ago,
copied from a New York paper," said
a lady living near Greeley, Pike Coun
ty, Pennsylvania, "a story about an
apple tree blossoming in October, and
the fatal results of it. The story was
tcld as coming from a man, and he
said that an apple tree at his home
had blossomed ten years before in Oc
tober, and shortly afterward his wife
had died, lt had not blossomed again
in October for several years, and then
within a month bis mother had died.
Then there was another lapse, and
when he told the story, which was
about the first of October, the tree was
again in blossom, and he was greatly
disturbed as to what was going to
happen next. Well, that story was
mine, and the reporter put it in the
name of a man, because .1 didn't want
to appear in it. Two weeks after I
had told the story to a party of friends
in which the repoiter was, I went
back home, and within a week the
house took fire and burned to the
ground. It was so sudden that we
barely managed to get out with our
lives, and our chief articles of apparel
were bathrobes and blankets. It was
a country place, and we had no means
of putting out the fire, so everything
was lost. The only consolation we
have is that the fatal apple tree stood
tso close to the house "that it was burn
ed to a crisp, and it, at least, will
never again be the messenger cf bad
luck, however much other trees may
bring with their October blossoms."

BSE CERTAIN S'CURE.
Often a rain may come after wheat
lias been sown, and on clay land so
beat down the soil that it will crust
over or bake when the sun comes out
so that many of the plants cannot get
I through. The use of a light harrow
with fine sharp teeth will remedy this
I very quickly without injury to the
j plants that are up, or those that are
j germinating. Nor does it injure wheat
to use such a harrow on it in the
I spring when the clover seed is sown,
; unless the roots have been thrown out
! by the frost, in which case a roller is
needed to press the plant roots back
into the earth.
Bent Location for a Now Garden.
Where the land is rotated for gar
dening the best location for a new gar
den ls the strawberry bed of last year,
for the reason that strawberries are
not only liberally manured and given
direct applications of fertilizer, but are
also carefully cultivated and the weeds
destroyed. The shading of the ground
by the strawberry vines also promotes
thc formation of humus. An excellent
way to treat the plot is to burn it over,
so as to clean off any dead grass or
other refuse that may be left, apply
well-rotted manure (in order to avoid
seeds or weeds), and plow early in the
spring in time to give a portion of the
space to onions.
Beat Treatment Tor Breeding Flock.
Clover hay is one of the very best
feeds. For a grain ration, my favor
ite feed is oats, bran and peas, with
roots or ensilage for succulent feed.
I prefer roots to anything else and
find that I never have too many. If I
do not have good luck in raising root
crops during the summer, I put up en
silage as the very best substitute.
Whatever feed is used, give it at regu
lar intervals and not too much at a
time. Make up a sohedule for feed
ing and then stick to it.
Good care and regularity are the
secrets of success In the stock busi
ness. I always have a box of salt for
the sheep to run to and am seldom
troubled with disease. The time to
doctor a sheep is before it gets sick.
When it once gives up, it is in most
cases lost. I think it far more profi
table to spend my time in finding out
what caused the sickness, in order to
keep the remainder of the flock
healthy, rather than attempt to doc
tor sick sheep.
I always know when my ewes ought
to begin to lamb, and put forth every
effort to have everything ready. Give
the young sheep a good start, for early
development is worth everything to
the shepherd. The lamb must be
pushed from birth until ready for sale.

Winter Horse Raining.
The new method to make the farm
horse pay his way every day in the
year is to keep good, sound, sizable
mares and breed them in the fall, pref
erably November. The foal then
comes in October when fall work is
mostly finished and from then till
March or April, given a comfortable
box stall, she will raise a fine foal
during the winier period of idleness,
and when spring opens up, thc foal is
weaned and the mare is ready to begin
the spring work and will work mod
erately right along up to the following
I always practiced working my
mares right up to the time of foaling,
with no injurious results, as long as
the mares are being fed plenty of
grain. A mare of 1000 pounds weight,
worked hard up to near the time of
parturition, needs not less than 14
pounds grain, chiefly oats. Thus fed
thc mare with foal can be worked
pretty hard. Assuming that the mare
foals in October, no more work is ex
pected from her all winter, though
light work will not hurt. A warm,
well-ventilated box stall is provided
for the mare and foal; if a water basin
is placed in the stall, all the better.
With plenty of pure water all that
is necessary for the mare and foal all
winter is a,generous allowance of hay
and oats, with an occasional feed of
boiled stuff, as boiled barley, but if
roots are fed generously, turnips or
carrots, there is no need of boiled
messes. With an abundant supply of
roots they may be fed every day. If
much corn is fed it should in all cases
be mixed with wheat bran, half and
half by weight. The foal soon learns
to eat hay and grain with its dam, and
will grow right along at a surprising
rate. When the warm days of spring
begin to open up, the mare can be
taken away from the foal, leaving the
box stall to the colt All he now needs
is a repetition of the feed given in
the winter. The grass is now or will
soon be ready and this will be the
best substitute for the dam's milk.-J.

If a Successful 1'nrinor.
Probably there are far more farra?,
ers who are not successful according
to the ideal test than who are. In the
following list, taken from the Journal
of Agriculture, of what the successful
farmer finds time to do we must con
fess that with the average farmer
many of them are neglected. We are
willing to admit, however, that they
may well bc taken as a m acure of the
highest and best conditions of succoss.
They may look, some of them, like
matters of secondary Importance, but
they are a test of good habits and of a
really Industrious and thrifty mode of
farming. We quote:
The man who makes the farm pay
ls a busy man, but there are some
things he does not let his busy ll Cc pre
vent attending to.
He ls never too busy to keep up with

work, and his hogs and cows are never
without an abundance of pure, fresh
He is never too busy to take care of
his machinery as soon as through

oiling all exposed parts.
He finds time for repainting all the
farm buildings as soon as they need it,
and never neglects needed repairs.
He finds time to cut all the weeds in
fence corners and other nooks about
the farm, and docs not allow the road
bordering his farm to grow weeds and
ripen seeds to seed his farm.
He finds time to work his garden,
cultivate his orchard and care for the
trees and shrubbery about his farm.
He finds time to build and keep up a
neat lawn with choice bed of flowers
and ornamental shrubbery.
Nitrogen for .Sandy Solis.
Of all the soils to be cultivated or to
be restored none are preferable to the
light, sandy soils. By their porous- ,
ness free access is given to the power
ful effects of air. They are naturall"
in that state to which drainage and
sub-soil plowing are reducing the
stiffer lands of England.
Manure may as well be thrown into
water as on land underlaid by water.
Drain this, and no matter if the upper
soil be almost quicksand, manure will
convert it into fertile, arable land.
The thin covering of mould, scarcely
one inch in thickness, the product of
a century, may be imitated and pro
duced in a short time by studying the
laws of its formation.
It is a well recognized fact that next
to temperature the water supply is the
most important factor in the produc
tion of a crop. Light soils give good
crops in seasons of plentiful and well
distributed rains or when skilfully ir
rigated, but insufficient moisture in a
soil is an evil that no supplies of plant
food can neutralize. Sandy soils are
rich in mineral constituents and fall to
give good crops in time of drouth only
on account of their inability to retain
moisture. This can be obviated by the
application of fermented peat or clay,
cr the sowing of clover. All of these
enable it to retain moisture in timejj^.
of drouth, and the decay of vegetabu
substances in the soil gives off car
bonic acid, a powerful solvent in the
Peat contains as much nitrogen as
barnyard manure, but as it is dug out
the nitrogen is locked up by acids in
insoluble combinations and applied to
the land in this condtion brings in
sorrel, coarse and unnutrltious grasses.
Composting it with an alkali to neu
tralize its acidity causes the peat to
heat, then ferment, and renders it sol- '
uble and -fit for food for plants at a
cost of two cents a pound for nitrogen.
If the land is in a condition to bear
clover it is easily brought to a state to
produce any crop, and if not in con
dition it can be readily made so at a
trifling cost for fertilization. A crop
of three tons of clover contains the
following constituents: 123 pounds of
alkali, 210 pounds alkaline earths, 45
pounds phosphoric acid and 127
Soils are not exhausted when it is
seen the power a suitable crop has to
liberate and convert the insoluble sub
stances existing in the soil and store
them in a plant for future use.
The clover should be cut for fodder
the first year; the second year cut it
once for fodder; then, allow it to grow .
again and go to seed, which save for
future use, and there is left in the
clover roots in the soil to the depth of
12 inches. 97 pounds of alkali.
292 pounds alkaline earths, 71 pounds
of phosphoric acid, 180 pounds of ni- '
trogen, available for p Crop, which,
when plowed, leaves the land clean,
light, retentive of moisture and easily
tilled with available constituents In
the clover roots and soil enough to
produce any crop profitably, and the
necessity of purchasing fertilizers and
applying them is Eaved. The farm
should be made self-supporting, but it
can only be done so by a judicious ro
tation of crop. If this is not resorted
to fertilizers, which are much more
costly, must be applied-Andrew H,
Ward, in New York Tribune.

The gold watch and chain which our
go\ eminent has sent to Captain Rich
ardson of thc British steamer Orange
Prince for saving two American fish
ermen lost on the ocean is a token of
recognition and national gratitude far
above its intrinsic value. The latter,
in fact, is much less than the cost of
stopping a great steamer and using
its time in the work of rescue, and on
this latter account some recognition
should also be made to the steamship
owners for the services of their ves
sel. Too many stories are told of
steamers that pass men afloat on the
ocean and leave them to perish. They
cannot be compelled to stop and res
cue the sufferers, but something

MONTANA'S WOMAN LAWYER.
Mrs. Ella Knowles Haskell, of Hel

from the state of Montana, the first
woman assistant attorney general in
the United States, and she has receiv
ed the largest fee ever paid to a legal
^practitioner of the gentler sex. which
fee was $10.000, for her services in a
case Involving valuable copper and
sliver. mines in Butte City, In which
.Tnm?s B. Hnggln, the multi-million
aire' of California, was. the plaintiff.
She defeated Mr. Hnggin's attorneys
with flying colors.

The time will probably come in
America when the European grape
will again be a valuable commercial
fruit. It was at one time, the fruit
selling readily at $1.50 a pound. The
cultivation went down for several
reasons, among them the fear of com
petition with the outdoor grown Eu
ropean grapes from California, the
injury to the roots by the phylloxera
and the difficulty of getting the intel
ligent labor to manage the vine prop
erly. It is clear, however, that no
more fear of competition with the
California product need be feared than
with' the Spanish grapes that come In

THE AMERICAN GIRL'3 ATTRAC
The Duke of Manchester, who prac
tises what he preaches, says that for
eign noblemen marry American girls
because they are beautiful, witty,
graceful, high-bred, original, Innocent,
audacious, intellectual and practical.
That ls to say, because they are the
sum of all the virtues. But Isn't lt
odd that practically a-U of the girls
sought by these foreign gentry are
rich? There are dead loads of
American girls who have all the quali-?
ties enumerated by the big duke, and j
yet do not contract foreign alliances. |
With few exceptions, foreign noblemen
are attracted only to rich American
girls. Of course, it may be only a
coincidence, but lt suggests all sorts]
of idle speculations.-St. Louis Post
Experiments in France with cannon
firing to protect the vines from hail
storms are reported to have been suc
cessful. Threatening clouds have been
torn asunder by the explosions, and
beneficial showers have descended in
place of the destructive little balls of
ice. A novel plan to disperse the
thickest of London fogs has been sug
gested recently. This scheme involves
the use of a balloon and the discharge
of huge quantities of guncotton in the
upper air. When a British fog Is rent
