Weeds hive Where Useful Plants Would
In the driest weather our gardener
was directed tG use a Iong, narrow ktiife
in cutting off the roots of the dandelion
plants at a point four or' live inches
from the surface, with the viewv of de
stroying them. Within sixty hours,
without a drop of rain, anmI the soil
without moisture, the plants sprouted
from the root-stump and ocame up vig
orously, and( covered the spot as before.
The cutting of. the plants again, and
covering the fresh incision with a few
grains of salt, did not arrest growth;
but a drtop of strong sul phuric
acid applied1 directly to the wvouni
apparently destroyed vitality. it is
not certaiin, however, that in the
spring they will not again appear in
unusual freshness and vigor. W at has
been stated regarding the dandelion
and Its tenacity of life aJpples to tuost
-noxious weeds. and the quest'on come~s
* up: W by Is It that. plahts that we de
not want, that are an Injury to the
fields, have capabilities of growth,
when valuable plants around them nre
killed? It sem to be a law in nature
that whatever is detestedl [and eil'rtsq
are made to destroy p ossesses p)owers
of endurance and resistantuce which en
dow it with remarkable vitality. We
enn see no good reason why wiorthless
weeds should eixist at all; apparently
they serve no0 good purpose in the
world. If we could remove them from
our fields as readily and as etlectively
as we can the wheat or the maize
plants, it would not be long before they
would cease to annoy us. It is prob
able that everything that grows exists
for a purpose, and whatever is regarded

W' laid-down asa rule that a no-o9mt
missione4 eficer cannot h9pe to receive
a dommssion. He is content. with his
poation. and Is lookedup to by the mass
of the peopje. Such Is not the case,
however, ith the Porte-Epeo-Fahnrich.
This category of non-pommlssioned of,4
fieers Is entirely distinct from the oth
ers. The Porte-Epee-Fahnrich are, in
fact, all aspirant Omeers, and -the -rank
that they hold is the first step that all
must, take who desire to enter the corps
of officers of the German army. This
grade is conferred, In proportion to the
number of vacancies, on young men
who .have been six months in active
service, who can roduce a certificate of
excellence in studies from certain speci
fled seat, of public instruction, or who
have passed su'cessfully a prescribed
examination before a military commis
slon sitting at Berlin. In order to be
admitted to this examination Or appli
cant must be either a Cadet or must
have enlisted as an avantageur; that
is. an aspirant to the sition
of an officer, and as a >rint*
by this title, to the ie nent of
certain priYLg-atteing to this par
cuMEdition. These privileges vary
according to the corps; a certain Iatl
tude is allowed to the Colonels in the
treatment of the avantaqeurs, who are
in principle only enlisted men. In
Germany the term Cadet Is applied to
a student at the military schools that
have been established to insure the fill
ing of vacancies among the officers of
the army. These schools are nine in
number, of which seven are in Prussia,
one at Dresden, for the Saxon army,
and one at Munich for the Bavarian
army. Of the seven Prussian schools,
six are only primary; they do not finish
theeducation of their scholars, who, at
fifteen years of ago, are all sent to the
principal school established at Licbter
feld. The Cadet schools all receive the
pupils at ten years of age and upward;
the latter can enter only after an ex
amainttion whose scope varies with the
age of the applicant. Although these
schools have a military organization,
the time spent there is not counted as
effective service; consequently, at the
expiration of the required numbier
of years of study, the cadets are
dlstrilbuted among the regiments of
the different arms of the service,
where they commence by serving six
months as enlisted men under .the
same conditions as the mvantagurs.
Once that they have been appolnted
Porte-Ep ee-Fahnrieh, the aspirant ofli
cers, whether Cadets or avantaeurs,
must pass through one of the war
schools (iKriegsselyulen) of the G~ernman
Empire in order to be promoted ofi
cers. It is only after live months' serv
ice at least with the rank of ensign
porte-epee, and, consequently, after
eleven months of active service. that
they can be sent to the war schools.
There are nine of these schools; the
course of studies is from nine to ten
months. On leaving'. the students go
to Berlin to undergo before the Military
Commission sitting in that city a new
examination that decides their fitness
for the grade of Second Lieutenant.
But before promotion they must stand
another test; they must be accepted by
the corps of officers they desire to join.
In each regiment the oflicers assembled,
with the Colonel presidng, dlecide upon
the suitableness of the candidate as re
gards character, honor, social standing,
etc. Finally, for the special branches,
artillery or engineers, ollicers must
pass through the school of application
at Berlin, where the duration of the
course Is two years.-The United .Service.
The Temato As a Dietary.
It is worth noting that typhoid fever
is most p~revalent among the poor, to
whom this expecnsive vegetable is almost
unknown. Sailors, too, just after land
ing, aire particularly liable to typhoid,
and In them wve may always expect a
more or less scorbuitic condition. But
the question of the protction ag'ainst
(1iseas0 by certain diets, and by such
habits as the use of alcohol, tobacco
and ,opium has as yet been hardly
mamlured into. Ex perinments are- now
being miade on the tincture of the
tomato 'which will help in determining
its thierapeutic value. Mecawhile, eate~n
cooked .with he ments,. andl in the form
of salad after a cold lunch, it is a pleas
ant andi useful addition to our ordinary
repimen. The fruit-acids it con
tamsj, combined w'ith the miechanic*al
etfeet of the seeds and skins, render
it to some e'xtent an enemy to
seulrvy as well as a laxative, and the
sutlphler, with its known power over
sep~tic condi. ions, would probably con
tribute to nmake its use a protection
against, the poison germs of thonse dis.
eases like typhoid, uthat find their way t
into thme system p)rimnarily by the ahi-r
muentary canal. ( ne caution is needed a
to the lovers of this eculent. The taste C
for it being an acquired one, it is thme t
more likely to be indulged in to excess,
and we have knowr, almost as many a
tomato-maniacs as astro-maniaes. All t
k'nds of raw fruit, it should be remem-t
bered, except usedl with care, are liable
to irritate, and we have known an in
stance wvhoe a person working hard all
day on raw tomatoes only, was seized
with Inflammation of the bowels, which
proved fatal In a few hours. As an ar
ticle of diet, then, two or three toma
toes will be found as effective as, and
certainly safer thgn, a dozen. --Austra*

Mr. Travers and Two Confidence Men.
Mr. William R. Travers tells the fol
lowing story on himself, and vouches for
its being anew and true one: As he was

his habit, when he was suddenly stopped

The Horn Industry.
If ome of our humble friends with Pi"
four feet could give expression to their sih
thoughts, they would perhap~s accuseI'
man of being a terribly rapacious ani-tc
inat. Not only, they might say, does he pr
eat our 1~csh, but he even utilizes our 7
skhti in various ways, and the very $
niorns of our heads are cut and shaped IS
and polished and pieced together, until be
they assume a hundred shapes whlich be
nature niever intended they should take.
Whiat a shockingly scifish and graspine o l
-creature this man, as he calls hinmsel!' se
must be! It may be urged that if our cli
four-footed brothern could speak, they th
might not have these or any other er
thoughts to communicate. This, how
ever, is a frivolous and superficial oh- to
jection, for does not the powver of in'
speech necessarily involve the ability is
to thinkP But even if this is not so- ca
and in our present mood we are not si
fonlCernedl to dispute the point-it is at co
least certain that if animals could think Ti'
and speoak, t he reflections we have put
into their mouths would be very natural
and~ approp~riate, and from their point rej
of view, oven reasonable.
Tfime wvas wvhen, from this point of
observation, we were much greater sin- L
ners than we arc now. In former days, do
and not so long- since, either, the horn
industry was o considerable importance E
in this country. T1here are, indeed, Su
ploenty of people who are by no means
wvillhng to confess themselves old, who
rernember when this material was used teri
for a multitude of purposes for which nic
glass and various metals are now em- ere
ployed. We are apt to think with pity v
)f our forefathers, who used it for their J*
amps, and lanterns, and windows; but
t is as well to remember, on the other
innd, that it possessed several recomn
nondations, by no means to be despised.
['rue, it was not so transparent as could
ave been wished, nor in those earlier
lays was it turned out of hand so antis
ically as it has been by the skill of
aore recent times. But then it required
good deal of breaking, and so our an
estors were spared some of the irrita
lonse which we unfortunate, mortals
ave to endure. In other directions the
ubstitution of glass for horn has more
o be said in its favor. The modern
umbler, for example, is a distinct im
rovement upon the drinking-horn
vhlich it has supplanted.
At the present time-to come to sober
acts-horn is used for the most pant in
he manufacture of combs, knife-han
lies, and mouth-pieces of pipes, al
houghi it is employed also, to a limited
txtent, for fancy articles. It is still
ItilizedJ, too, for the hunting-horn, but
he orchestral instruments denominated
'horns," are now made of brass.
trnge to say, one of the best kinds of
ora ior artistic purposes Is that for
vleh we are indebted to the comely
mud graceful rhinoceros, and it is so be
-ause it is soid instead of being hollow,
us most other horns are. It is worth
toting, too, that although the braeder
ins done much to improve the flesh of
omesticated animals, it does not ap
>ear that any improvement has been
uperinduced either in the size or ter
uire of the horns. It is sur ested, in-.
heed, that the horns of w 1 animale
are more permanent than thoefth
