The Crop That Never Falls.
? know of only one sure crop on the
farm that never fails, no matter what
the weather or the condition of the
soil, and that ls the weed crop. The
past season ha* been very favorable
for this crop, and an abundant yield
of seed is sure to follow^ so that we
may expect a large weed crop next
summer. On occasional farms there
are comparatively few weeds, except
those in fence corners, along the roads,
or in places not cultivated or grazed
by sheep. These places on our farms
should be looked after, the weeds cut
and left on the ground, if green; if
ripe, burn them. It is surprising how
many such weeds can be destroyed in
a short time by a good scythe in the
hands of a man who knows how to
use it. Along the road, weeds are left
to go to seed, and cause trouble to
adjoining fields that would doubtless
have been almost clear of weeds.

About Apple Trees.
_Mr. E. A. Seasons, an orchardist ol
Madison, Ohio, gives us the following
interesting experience with apple
This being an off year of my Bald
win trees. I decided to experiment
with them, and gave each of two
trees, as early in the spring as frost
permitted, an application of two
pounds each of fine ground bone and
muriate of potash. The middle of
April about two pounds of nitrate of
soda was scattered under each. Two
adjacent trees of the same variety
were left unfertilized. With the com
ing of the leaves the effects of the
fertilizers were apparent. The trees
which were fertilized produced glossy,
dank green foliage, and the fruit was
much above the average of size in
other y??ars, or a most brilliant color
and of the finest eating quality, and
exceeded the quantity produced by the
untreated trees, whose fruit was of
inferior quality, small, tough and, to
some extent, scabby. On the untreat
ed trees the early foliage was a sick
ly color and very slow in appearing,
as were the blossoms, which were not
at all abundant.-Up-to-Date Farming.

There are a few things which must
be kept in mind to insure success. I
will briefly touch these points. The
first rule, which has very appropriate?
ly been called "the golden rule of bee
keeping," is that you must keep your
colonies strong at all times, if you
wish to get a honey crop. Keep this
in view always and work for it.
The second thought or rule, and one
very closely related to the above is in
relation to the queen. A good prolific
young queen is necessary at all times.
' You should see to it that your queens
do not outgrow their usefulness, a
queen over two years old, as a rule, be
comes unprofitable, as the queen is the
life of the colony, it ls very essential
that this matter be considered very
The hive is a very important mat
ter. . ^
Here are the points to consider in a
hive: First, success in wintering; sec
ond, amount of comb honey obtained; j
third, ease and speed of manipulation.
L. li. Langstroth, the father of mod
ern bookkeeping came very near solv
ing all those points, or at least the
first two, successfully. His ideas on
those two points are the best known
today. His hive has been changed
slightly to secure the third, so that
his hive, all things considered gives
the best results of any hive in use
today. Each manufacturer has some
pet hobby or theory to catch the fancy;
but for safety in wintering and results
give me the Langstroth hive adapted
for pound sections.
A common mistake with beginners
is tp think that they can Improve the
standard hives. Don't try it. If you
want to make your own hives, send to
some factory and get a sample hive all
nailed and fitted up, and make your
hives exactly like it. Each piece and
space has been carefully thought out
and tested and means something.
George W. Williams, in The Indiana
Best Cow Liked Alfalfa.
In his interesting reference to the
/ersey cow test at St. Louis, Mr. Van
"Pelt, under whose charge it was con
ducted, in the Jersey Bulletin refers to
the great Jersey cow that Stood at
the head. He says:
Perhaps no cow in the whole test
was so much a subject of habit as No.
37, that averaged 42 cents a day net
profit in butter alone. It will be noted
by the feeding tables that her ration
differed from the other cows and dif
fered greatly in its own composition at
different times. She was particularly
fond of alfalfa hay, and ate more by
far than any other cow In the test;
and, together with corn meal and oats,
"would respond more readily to these
than with any other food stuffs.
If it happened that oats had been
rolled and the hulls removed, so much
the better. This was her great sin.
Even though rolled oats could be pur
chased, at the St. Louis feed stores for
the Same money as ground oats, it was
thought by some that a cow should
not eat the same food that they them
selves had so often eaten at their
morning meal, little thinking of the
many times they had eaten corn meal
at their supper table. Yet it was giv
?>n the name of "breakfast food," and
one feeder, rather than feed that which
had been given such an unpractical
ttame, resorted to feeding oats of such
a quality that upon being analyzed by,
the chemist were found to be all hulls
and almost entirely indigestible? 4t
It was also found necessary to study
the particular likes and dislikes of this
cow in how and when she was water
ed, exercised and milked; and it is on
ly fair to assume that had her pecu
liarities never been found and catered
to she would never have produced the
amount of butter she did, nor stood at
the head of the list as the best dairy
cow of any breed. Yet how often we
find it the case that the very best
cows, with their dairy instincts devel
oped to the highest degree, are the
ones which need the greatest amount
of special care!-Indiana Farmer.
Value of Irrigation.
"The most important factor in grow
ing crops is soil moisture," says Farm
Stock Journal. "Poor .soil will grow
good crops if water ls supplied in just
the right quantity at the right time,
while the very best soil will produce
nothing without water.
"Although agriculture is hundreds of
years, old the minor details have re
ceived all or nearly all of the consid
eration of agriculturists up to the
present time. The most important of
all, that of the regulation of soil wat
er has received the least attention.
Experiments on a large scale here and
there with irrigation works in sections
of the country where rainfall ls sup
posed to be sufficient also have proved
"The probabilities are that auxiliary
irrigation works for intensive farming
in the near future will receive the at
tention that it should. Of course arti
ficial irrigation in rainy sections of
the country on large farms in all pro
bability will be out of reach for prac
tical use. Throughout the thickly set
tled portions of the east and middle
states, especially near large markets,,
such crops as strawberries, potatoes,
cabbage, in fact almost all trucking
crops could be grown under irrigation
to advantage. In many places the cost
of irrigation would be very slight as
the water supply is now- going to
waste through small or large streams
that could be*run by gravitating to
the land or lifted at slight expense by
wind or power. The necessity of
growing larger crops ls becoming more
pronounced every year. Experiment
stations are working out problems in
irrigation and sub-irrigation that are
extremely Interesting. In southern
sections, where two or three crops may
be grown on the same land within the
year, returns would be better than in
the north, where only one crop usual
ly ls growl.. But some means for
increasing the output of land on the
smaller farms and in trucking districts
must come soon.
"A great deal has been done of late
years to conserve the natural rain
fall with the result that better crops
are grown simply by better cultivation.
The habit of keeping the ground loose
on top to prevent evaporation is grow
ing and extending each year. The val
ue of rotation to prevent a plentiful
supply of humus also is recognized by
better farmers everywhere. It is now
well known that soil containing plen
ty of humus also contains sufficient
moisture for the needs of all crops
when rainfall is abundant. When the
soil is very loose water is not brought
up from below with sufficient rapidity
to feed the roots of growing plants. In
such soils probably no means of sup
plying moisture will be found until ir
rigation is tried. But other soils hav
ing a clay subsoil- and furnished with
sufficient humus the moisture question

In the room when he died were Dr.
Montgomery, one of the physicians at

ind a nurse, two of the attending phy
sicians, Dis. Edie and Kean, having

)f the case is that although General
jee had a family consisting of a wife
ind five children, not one of them was
vith him at the time of his death. The
jeneral was 68 years of age.
Arrangements for General Lee's fun
gal,'together with the selection of the
)lace, for interment of the remains, will
lot be made until after the arrival in
fyashington of Mrs. Lee, who is now
)n her:way to Washington from Fort
Dglethrope, Ga. Meanwhile the body
?vilLbe prepared for burial and will re
nain at the hospital. It is possible
;hat the Body may be laid to rest at
:he national cemetery at Arlington, al
:hough it is expected that General
Lee's friends may make'an effort to
laye' a site chosen somewhere else in
7irginia, the State in which he lived so
nany years and with whose interests
ie was so strongly identified.
A widow and five children survive
Seneral Lee. Two of the boys are ar
ny officers and two of the girls are
?vives of army officers, while the re
maining child is a young woman still
in her teens. The children arc Mrs.
I; C. Rae, wife of Lieutenant Rae, now
it Fort Oglethorpe; Lieutenant Fitz
iugh Lee, of the calvary branch, now
in Manilla; Lieutenant Mason Lee, of
the Seventh Cavalry, who is now in
3an Francisco; Mrs. Anne Brown, wife
if Lieutenant Brown of the Seventh
Cavalry, who is now at San Francisco,
md Miss Virginia Lee.
General Lee was stricken with ap
poplexy, the entire left side being af
fected, at 3 o'clock Friday morning,
ivhlle on a train en route from Boston
io Washington. The train had just left
the Harlem river when the stroke
janie. The train bearing the general
arrived in Washington shortly after
10 o'clock. Under the direction of Ma
jor Kean, United States Army, of the
Surgeon General's office, the patient
was removed to Providence Hospital.
A physician was taken aboard the
train at Jersey City. At Philadelphia
he gave place to another, who accom
panied the general to Baltimore, where
3till another was taken aboard and
made the trip to Washington.
General Lee had been spending a few
days in Boston and was returning to
Washington, on his way to join Mrs.
His Distinguished Career.
General Lee long has been a promin
ent figure in Washington, and he al
ways was given a hearty reception
wherever he went.
Prior to the civil war at the begin
ning of which he resigned his commis
sion in the United States army, Gen
eral Lee saw considerable frontier duty
In moving against the Indians. He
was an ex-cavalry officer.
His services in the Confederate ar
my as a major general are well known,
and during the interval between this
war and his active work in the Span
ish-American war, General Lee filled a
number of important positions, includ
ing governorship of Virginia, the presii
dency of the Pittsburg & Virginia itaib
road, the collectorship of internal rev
enue for the Lynchburg district, and
the consul generalship at Havanna.
Following his honorable discharge
from' the volunteer army on March 2,
1901, General Lee was appointed to the
regular army with the rank of brig
adier general, and with this rank he
was retired in the March following. .

testimony in the trial of Nan Patterson
charged with the murder of Caesar
Young, came when Coroner's Physi
cian O'Hanlon took the stand for the
prosecution and said in reply to ques
tions, that he had changed his opin
ion that Young committed suicide.
Dr. O'Hanlon performed the autopsy
on Young's body. In h:s testimony to
day, he said: "My present opinion is
not the opinion formerly expressed to
Tke counsel for the defense, Lawyer
Levy, asked the doctor: "Did you re
port this case to Coroner Brown as one
When Dr. O'Hanlon replied in the
affirmative, Mr. Levy asked:
"Do you now say that in your best
judgment it is a case of suicide?"
"No, I won't say that." .
"Didn't you say so once?" waa
"I did, but I think now it is a case
for the jury to decide. I thought ai
the time that I detected powder marks
on the hands o:' Caesar Young."
Assistant District Attorney Rand
produced the official report of Dr.
O'Hanlon, which did not define the case
as one of suicide and the doctor said
that he simply expressed the suicide
opinion in conversation with Coroner
Brown. After some further question
ing Mr. Rand asked the witness if he
still held the same opinion that he
expressed to Coroner Brown and Dr.
O'Hanlon replied: "I will only say
this, my opinion now is not what it
was when I talked to Coroner Brown."
This incident came at the close of the
day's proceedings in the trial. When
court opened Miss Patterson appeued
in a black and white checked dress in
direct contrast to the mourning cos
tume which she had worn during days
of this and previous trials. At today's
session Police Captain Sweeney told
cf a conversation he had with Miss
Patterson .soon after her arrest in
which she said she had put her hand in
Young's pocket after the shot had been
fired, had looked at the revolver and
then dropped it back in the pocket.
The scenes on West Broadway where i
the shooting took place were gone over
by witnesses and the cab driver who
was on the box when Young was shot
was on the stand, but the testimony
at the previous trial. When Frederick
Michaels, the cab driver, was asked
why he did not look in the cab when,
he heard the shot fired, he replied:
"It wasn't my place. Suppose I had
looked io and got shot?"
Dr. E. M. Riggin, formerly of the
Hudson Street hospital, testified that
the bullet which caused Young's death
entered the left side and after striking
the backbone lodged in the muscles of
While Dr. Riggin was being examin
ed a headless and legless r'-eleton was
brought into court. Lavyer Levy
strenuously objected to the introduc
tion, saying that it was unnecessary
and tended to prejudice the case
against the defendant. Miss Patterson
was visibly affected. After Dr. Riggin
had indicated on the skeleton the
course of the bullet which killed
Young, Mr. Levy, counsel for the pris
oner, asked that he illustrate the posi
tion in which the revolver must have
been held to produce the wound. "I
could not do it at the point I have in
dicated," the witness replied, "because
I could not twist myself into such a
14 Die in Convent Fire.
Montreal, Special.-The little village
of St. Genevieve is in mourning over
the loss of 14 lives in a fire, which
destroyed the convent of St. Anne
there early today. One nun, nine chil
dren, ranging in age from 10 to 18
years, and four old women perished
in the flames. Two nuns were so se
verely burned that it is feared that
they will die. In their grief over the
catastrophe, the villagers find some
comfort in relating thc heroism dis
played by Sister Marie Adjuteur, who
gave up her life, and Sisters Marie
Therese and Marie Robertine, who
were perhaps fatally burned in their
effort to save the lives of the children
and helpless old women in their
