CHURCHES. PECKED;. IN. PEARLS. 1
Rare Treas uros the Bay of Panama Yielded
to the Spaniards.
When the stranger arrives at Seville
and Toledo and the guides conduct
him to the cathedrals of those old
cities, he is struck with their magnifi
cence and the abundance of the'pearls
which are their finest decoration.
These pearls came from the Bay of
Panama and date from the epoch when
the Spaniards, at the zenith of their
glory, made the conquest of America.
These Panama pearls rival the most
beautiful pearls in tue Orient. Quite
recently, in the spring of 1S99 a lad
of 15 years found an oyster containing
a pearl which was sold at Paris for
50,000 francs. For his portion he re
ceived 20.000 francs.
A considerable quantity of pearls
procured at Panama are sent to New
York, where they do not. lack purchas
ers. One consignment exceeded in
value 750,000 francs. The island pearls
are thus denominated on account of
the archipelago in which the oyster
fisheries are carried on. It is opposite
the Bay of Panama. The archipelago
is composed of 16 islets, in which are
30 or 40 small villages of negroes and
Indians. The soil is fertile but the
principal occupation is that at the
fisheries. The large isle, called Rey,
alone embraces half of the population.
San Miguel is the chief place of the
fisheries, and there there is a very fine
church. The inhabitants are nearly all
blacks. They, are descended from the
negro population, from whom the
Spaniards learned the advantage they
could derive from the island riches. In
certain of the islands there must have
been , diamond beds. Some fine rragh
diamonds were formerly procured.
There are two systems for carrying
on pearl fishing in the Bay of Panama.
In certain spots, where the yield is the
most abundant, it is necessary to pay
the government a very high tax. At
other points the tax is small, but a
percentage on the pearls discovered is
added to it. Generally, these pearls are
rather small. They usually bring from
5 to 50 francs each. Those which
reach 150 to 300 francs are already
much less in number.-Jewelers' Cir-?

The last milk taken from the cow is
much richer in butter fat than the
first. It is important that every drop
of milk be taken from the udder. Much
depends upon thc milker and his treat

will get more milk than others owing
to their knowledge of the characteris

Thc increase in the use of pure bred
rams to grade up the sheep is account
able not only for thc larger clips of
wi ol, but for the increased demand
for mutton and lamb in our markets.
To use a grade lamb is poor economy
when the pure bred can be bought as
cheaply as now, and the larger profit
in both lambs and wool will soon re
pay the cast of a really good sire to
head the flock. There has iieen much
said and written about the large profit
to bc made in having lambs dropped
in the fall or early winter and ready
to sell in the spring, but unless one j
has a place well fitted us so that the
lambs can be kept warm we doubt if
there is much more profit in them
than in spring lambs. The extra care
and extra feed take no small part cf
the extra price.
For Winter or Fprin? Pi?*?
Figs coming in the months of De
cember. January and February need
thc very best conditions of warmth and
are quite expensive on account of the',
long time they must be kept penned
ur before grass grows. Pigs farrowed
in January, and February need a
warm, roomy, well ventilated pen,
which few farmers have. The two best
months for litters to come, under or-.
dinary circumstances, are March and
September, and a good, thrifty sow can
just as well have two litters a year as
one. Thc sow, when mated, should be
in good, thrifty condition. It is a mis
take to breed when either boar or sow
is in poor condition.
When two litters a year are desired,
the sow should be bred between Nov.
15 and D?c. 15. If only one litter a
year is wanted, breed a month later.
There is a decided advantage in not
having pigs come until between April
15 and May 15. The weather is then
quite warm and there will bc no dan
ger of losing the youngsters by cold.
Grass will then be obtainable, and the
sows having access to grass will give
little cr no trouble when farrowing.
But those who mean to raise two lit
ters a year must have the first litter
come not later than April 1, so the
sow can be bred in good time for the
fall litter-J. A. McDonald, in Orange
Improved Method* in the Dairy.
American farmers are rapidly turn
ing their attention to the utilization of !
farm products on the farms, in order !
to derive thc most that is possible to
be obtained therefrom. Dairying is
making great progress, but this is due j
to the inrention of the cream separa
' tor and the improved churns ....d dairy
appliances. Compared with the past a
well-managed farm can support twice
as many animals as fopmerly because
of thc great saving of labor. In some
communities the farmers take their
milk or cream to the factory and bring
back the skim milk to be converted
into pork. If within convenient dis
tance milk is shipped to the cities.
Dairying entails tedious work during !
every month of the year and every day
in the week, early and late, but no in
dustry on the farm gives such large
returns, which is demonstrated by the
large number of farmers who are an
nually being added to the list of dairy
men. The dairy farm provides a mar
ket for thc products grown, and the
dairy farmer need not grow any crop
that can not be used on the farm.
Dairying gives the farmer greater con
trol of his operations, and the work is
also educational. It leads to the u:e
of better stock, and the farms are
gradually being depopulated of the j
cernb cattle which have caused so J
much loss in the past, ?.he pure breeds j
rapidly coming into use over all por- !
tions of the country. Dairy farms
must also necessarily be kept clean and
in good conditiou. and they inc ease in
attractiveness as each year comes in.
Mannering Mie Woodlot.
Timber land in the section of New
Jersey where I live is growiug scarce,
says Grant Davis, in the American
Agriculturist. There is not 1 percent
left outside of the mountains or rocky
elevations which cannot be cleared for
cultivation. Almost every farmer has
his woodlot on the mountain, from
two to 10 acres in size, and sometimes
as far as 10 miles from the farm. Be
fore the time of wire fencing, it was
quite a feature of the venter's work to
get out posts and rails. Considerable
wood is still used for rail fences as
well as for posts for wire fences. A
good finished rail is worth 12 l-2c. and
a holed post 25c. The original growth
on these rocky slopes" was chestnut,
'and.it-still predominates, although on
account of thc severe cutting the oaks
and hickories have got a start and
there are also some basswood and
birch. Chestnut is the ideal fencing
wood, as it splits neatly, and very
lasting in the soil and to thc weather.
There are three ways in which these
woodlots are treated. Some are cut
off clean and thc stumps allowed to
sprout and are cut again in 20 years.
This is the coppice method. A few are
well cared for and only moderate im
provement cuttings made. Again, there
are many which are treated with no
system at all. The coppice method de
pends upon the sprouting from the
stumps fo^ the reproduction of the
wood cron. These sprouts grow rapid
ly, but do not attain much size and are
short-lived. There are lots which have
been cut over two or three times
where the chestnut is dying before it
gets big enough to splitforrails. Chest
nut is a good sprouter and will hold
its own with the other kinds, but for
best results in the long run some seed
lings should bc lefL Cutting should he
done in the winter or early spring. If
cut in midsummer the sturm will usu
ally die. The growing capacity nf
timber and the high prices of fuel and
lumber make the farmer's woodlot
worthy of his careful attention. It
should be so managed as to get tho
most wood out of It every year without
marring its future uscrulness.

December and January are the
months when incubators should be
started, and a few words now about
their management will not be amiss. In
the first place, don't experiment with
ol^p or home-made lncubatoro.
Select th? Und you prefer, and aft?
having it set up, run It for a few day?
in order to test the heat and familiar
ize yourself with its workings. If af
ter the second day, you find the re
quired heat, about 102 ? degrees; i3
steadily maintained la few tlegr?es
either way makes little difference), -
then the eggs may be put in. Select
eggs of uniform size that are perfectly
fresh, certainly not over a week old,
and those that have not been chilled,
and lay them gently in the machine.
It matters net in what position they
are placed, as they must be shifted
morning and night during incubation.
The temperature in the incubator
will at once go down, owing to the cold
eggs, but will gradually rise, as thc
eggs become heated.
Don't attempt to force up the tem
perature by applying more heat. Leave
the lamp just as before, and the proper
heat should soon assert itself. As be
fore stated, a variation of a few de
grees makes but little difference,
though uniformity of heat is better.
The strongest chicks are those hatched
by machines kept at an even tempera
ture. There is some question as to
time of putting moisture in egg cham
ber, each factory furnishing directions
in thi% matter.
After the first few hatches one will
become familiar with the workings cf
the machine, and need no further in
structions. The principal point to look
after in running an incubator is to ad
here as nearly a^ possible to nature,
and remember that it is not the clos
est sitter among the hens that hatches
the most chickens. Thc writer has seen
hens sitting in the coldest months nf
the year como off to feed when thc
temperature was almost zero, and still
they brought out fairly good hatches.
A strong, fertile egg will stand quito
a lot of apparent rough treatment and
yet hatch, nevertheless, it is not advis
able to encourage such habits Y/ith
them.-Home and Farm.
You cannot produce first-class winter
butter unless you churn often.
To churn every other day is better
than once in three clays, while to put
it off till every fourth day is execrable
practice. And yet-a vast amount of
butter manufactured on the latter plan
is marketed every winter, much to the
disgrace of the dairy trade.
i It is found primarily in country
stores, where it has been exchanged by
small dairymen at a second rate price
The tradesmen ship it in lots to the
city market, where all the way
through, whether it ends in the larder
of a baker or cn the table of the poor
workingman, it is classed as inferior
and sells for a low price.
And yet the original material from j
which this butter was made was as
good as that which is employed in
turning out tho 25 and 30-ccnt article, j
The inferiority cf quality and conse
quent loss to dairymen follows because
they ignore the right principles of but
Suppose tba: a farmer after raising |
a fine crop of potatoes and digging ;
them should allow the tubers to lie a j
clay or two in the sun before storing
them in the root cellar? Could he ex
pect to sell the green, bitter vegetables
for full market quotations? Most cer
tainly not, and even the most obtuse
are thoroughly well aware of this fact.
And yet those who use common
sense in this respect with inconceiva
ble folly will spoil good Gream and ;
butter by wanton neglect, as outlined
. It is pretty costly neglect, too, as it
forfeits from S to 10 cents on every
pound of inferior butter.
This could bc obviated by churning
cream when it is fresh and pure, i. a., i
slightly matured, but not bitter, and [
manufacturing it into butter according
to modern principles.

the milk in at ".east 24 hours, and then
the cream should be matured and ?
churned within the next 24.
This can be dene usually by keeping
it at a temperature of between GO de
grees and 70 degrees.
It is where cream is kept at near 40 ,
degrees and for several days that it i
develops that bitter flavor ruinous to j
butter quality.-George E. Newell, in
In order to get at the true condition |
of things today we need often to take ?
a back track and note the condition j
of things at the beginning. Old soils ;
arc not new soils. Thc growth of for- j
ests for centuries had prepared the
soil for man's particular use. Being a j
New Hampshire farmer I refer now to \
New Hampshire lands. The glaciers :
centuries ago came grinding clown i
from the north and left the debris they
had taken on board or shovelled up by
the way suited for forest growth,
while the water from the melted ice
cut its way to the sea coast.
We are not told from whence the
seeds of the forest trees came, but the
first settlers in New Hampshire found
ail of forest they cared to deal with. ;
They fo';nd their lands lumbered up
with giant trees not easy to to deal
with. Vet wita the courage of the pi
oncer they ''laid thc axe at the root of
thc tree," it came crashing to the
ground. All but enough for their cab
ins was converted ir?o ashes and
strewn over ?.he soil. Hundreds of cords
to the acre of the roots decayed in the
soil, furnishing humus for the farmers'
benefit for many years after. Tho
ashes, too, were there io clo their
work, and the farmer had but to plant
his seed, bc it corn, wheat or potatoes,
and he was ?ure of a large yield. In my
boyhood days the failure of a crop of
wheat, corn or potatoes was hr.rdly
known. The first failure was thc wheat
crop, when attacked by the weevil. I
remember the sad havoc that pest
made. Acres and acres were ruined en
tirely and wheat raising in New Hamp
shire soon became impossible. No
fault of the soil, for the straw was all
right in length, but often injured by
the rust. Many years went by before
any fertilizer but barnyard manure
was talked of. The demand for some
thing to grow crops was urgent.
Chemistry was ransacked, and one en
thusiastic student declared that thc
time would come when a farmer could
carry enough fertilizer in his vest
pocket for an acre. A wag standing by
replied, "Yes, and he will carry off tho
crop in the other pocket." We want
to get right back to first conditions.
Fill the soil full of humus if it be only
sawdust and shavings; and apply the
needed elements, hard wood ashes if
you please, or their equivalent, and
crops will grow again. Plowing in for
age crops is a cheap way of putting
New Hampshire soils in a good me
chanical condition by separating the
solid particles of the earth one from
the other, also furnishing plant food.

In Mr. Tuckwell's recently published

I ' CATACOMBS OF ROME,
I' How They Were Constructed and Changes
That Have Bsen Made.
The model in which the catacombs
[ were constructed and the changes
, which they underwent at different
(.periods is very clearly illustrated by
I the example of the catacomb of St.
j Callixtus, whose discovery is one of
I the most important which Di Rossi
has made. The Christian proprietor
secured a site of 250 feet frontage to
the road and 100 feet deep from front
to back. The staircase wa3 sunk into
i the soil at one corner to a certain
depth, and gallery round three sides
of the area, with another staircase at
its further extremity; two other gal
leries also extended from front to back,
and still four ether galleries extended
'part of the way across, all on a rather
higher level than the main passage,
! and therefore approached by an ascent
I of a few steps, and at the extremity
? of one of these shorter galleries three
chambers were formed; all these pas
sages and chambers were occupied by
graves. After a fresh set of cubicula
were formed opening out of the main
passage, only on a rather lower lever,
and so approached by a descent of a
few steps. At the same time another
series of galleries stretching across the
area was constructed at a lower level,
gained by another staircase. Still
later an endeavor was made to reach
a still lower level, possibly for the
parp?se of constructing a third set of
galleries, but after sinking a certain
j number of steps the excavators found
themselves below the stratum of tufa
and in a stratum of friable pozzolana.
They strengthened their wall with
brick, and made a few graves in the
walls of brick, but seem then to have
abandoned the further progress of their
work in the unsuitable stratum. The
tiles and bricks used in this latest por
tion of the work bear the imperial
stamp of Marcus Aurelius, and there
fore must have been made between the
years 160 and ISO A. D.
Some time after, precautions were
taken to conceal the entrances to the
cemetery by blocking up the staircases
and making entrances through an
adjoining sand pit. Still later the
.cemetery was further enlarged, and
made to communicate with others ad
joining, and finally the galleries, which
had been lined with dead in the graves
made in their sides from top to bot
tom, were filled with earth, probably
to conceal them and preservo them
from violation in the Diocletian perse
cutions. The discovery of this interest
ing cemetery is due to Di Rossi, who
found part of an inscription on marble
in the cellar of a vineyard, which he
conjectured-rightly, as it turned out
to be part of the tomb of Pope Cor
nelius, which was known historically
to be near the cemetery of St. Callix
tus. At his suggestion the Pope pur
chased the vineyard and one adjoining,
excavations were made, and were re
warded by this valuable result.-Lon
British Royal Succession.
In Great Britain the royal succes

scent, males and the descendants of
males being preferred to females or
their descendants of the same degree
of consanguinity. It would have made
no difference, therefore, if the Empress
Frederick of Germany, who is the
eldest of the children of the late Queen
Victoria, had remained unmarried; the
oldest male child of the queen, who
was the Prince of Wales, and the issue
Of his body would nevertheless have
been the heirs to the throne. The older
daughter of Queen Victoria could have
succeeded only if all of her brothers
had died before their mother and
without leaving any descendants. The

and powers of the Kaiser hereditary in
the royal house of Prussia. The rule ,
of succession in Prussia not only pre- j

Journey of a Ticket.
A recent number of the Railway
Journal contains a well-authenticated
story of a railway ticket which took a
sudden journey on its own account.
As a northbound train on the Colo
rado ft Southern road passed one of
the stations a passenger in a forward
car raised a window and in an instant
his ticket was blown from his hands
out of doors.
Thc passenger naturally gave it up
for lost, and was very much surprised
j when thc baggagemaster handed it to
i him a little while later.
I It appears that when the ticket flew
through thc window a southbound
train was passing. The suction of that
j train, which was moving at a rapid
j rate, drew the ticket along with it, and
! as it passed the rear end of the north
bound train it blew into the door of
the smoking car. There it was found
by thc baggagemaster.

WONDERFUL CUBE OF PSORIASI
AS a sufferer for thirty years from the worst form of Psori
asis? finally corea by Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment, I wish to tell you my experience, that others
may benefit by it. I was so grievously afflicted that thc
matter that exuded from my pores after the scales had peeled
off, would cause my underclothing: to actually gum to my
body? After remaining* in one position, sitting or lying:
down, for an hour or two, the flesh on my elbows and knees
would split, so thick and hard would the crusty scales bec/ ne.'
The hurniliation I experienced, to say nothing of physical
agony, was something frightful. r The detached scales would,
fairly rain from my coat sleeves. - I have read none of your
testimonials that appear to represent a case so bad as mine.
But as to the cure? I commenced bathing in hot Cuti
cura Soap suds night and morning, applied the Cuticura'
Ointment, and then wrapped myself in a sheet. In two
weeks my skin was almost blood red in color, but smooth1
and without scales. Patches of natural colored skin began'
to appear, and in less than a month I was cured. I am now'
passed forty years of age and have skin as soft and smooth'
as a baby's. Hoping that others may benefit by my experi
ence, and regretting that sensitiveness forbids me from dis-?1
closing my name, I am yours gratefully, \
