THE DEMOCRATC NORTirWEST. THURSDAY, JANUARY 27. 1881.
Two TaqaiiiM lit beforej ui u lo the
0 of ubM u manure: We ha fre
quently luverad this nuewtion in theae
column! but with our large liat of new
ubecribera, it ia not itnuige that aome
inquiries ehould be repeated. Wa there
fore repeat aubaUntuUlj what whae
aid on other occasion. It la impossible
to tell with any degree of certainty what
the effect of given manure, will be on
a riren aoil or crop. The kind of aoil
k4 or it mechanical' construction, the cli-
nrate,aeaOM, mode of cultivation and the
value of the manure, all may have an
influence in the result. The chief value of
ashes consists in supplying the soil with
mineral constituents, and bv their action
as solvents upon other insoluble salts
already in the soil; also- by neutralizing
acids, ana improving we niecnamcai con
dition of the soil. Barn-yard manure is
chiefly composed of water and organic
matter, as woody fiber, starch, gum,
sugar, gluten, and albumen in vegetables,
and in animals the flesh, milk, butter,
cheese, etc. The character and fertility
of the soil depends very greatly on the
nature and quantity of the organic matter
it contains: yet while inoganio mattei
forms by far the smaller portion, this
portion is absolutely essential to the pro
auction of useful plants. No seed can be
produced without it; and the absence of
a single element may render the soil in
fertile or entirely barren. Competent
authorities have estimated the annual
exhaustion of salts by crops of grain,
roots and grass, at from 180 to 250 pounds
, per acre; and as ashes (of plants) consist
of these elements they furnish one of the
most needful manures for the soil.
Rats that Lore Tobacco.
It is a well-known Tact that raU and
mice, in addition to their preverbial sly
ness, fall into astonishingly disagreeable
habits when their surroundings are such
as to tempt them to depart from the tem
perate course characteristic of rodent life.
At a tobacco-house, in St. Louis is a
bright, grayish-colored rat, fat and
plump, that emerges from his hole dur
ing the day-time, jumps upon the pile of
leaf tobacco and eats and relishes the
nicotine weed the same as it would a
dainty bit of toasted cheese. Thisani--mal
is perfectly gentle, and its curious
appetite has vouched for it the freedom
of the entire factory. It is looked upon
in the establishment as the greatest of
living curiosities, and possessed, as it
seems to be, with intelligence, it is per
mitted to frolic about the factory un
molested and allowed to taste sparingly
of the choicest importations.
About this time many people say, "Re
member the poor!" and then button their
overcoats go close that they can't get at
Great things are not accomplished by

The Midwinter (February) Scribner has
always been a special number, as rich as
the choicest literary matter and the most
beautiful wood engraving can make it,
Of last year's midwinter number the
London J'imes said: "It is a really mag
' nificent triumph of American pictorial
art and literary genius." The English
publisher of Scribner has telegraphed for
17,000 copies of the present number, an
advance of 6,000 upon his orders last year,
and the largest edition of an American
magazine ever sent to England; in fact,
it is said to be larger than the monthly
sales of any English magazine. The
American edition of Scribner has grown
during 1880 about 20.000 copies.
A delightful feature of the magazine
this year is a series of spaikliug novelet
tes, or condensed novels, instead of a
serial story. "A Fair Barbarian," the
story of a piquant American girl in Eng
land, by Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett,
begins in this February number, with a
twenty two page installment, and will
run through three issues. Since the death
of George Eliot it may be said that Mrs.
Burnett commands a larger English
speaking audience than any other woman.
Her novelette will be followed by one by
George W. Cable, author of "The Gran
dissimes." etc.. and afterward Boyesen's
"Queen Titania" will be published. "Pe
. ter the Great," Eugene Schuyler's histori
' 5ial work, begun in February, 1880, will
be finished in October of this year. By
means of the recently published special
offers of Seribner, the whole of this great

In the same- ratio that Scribner's
Monthly is prospering, St. Nicholas, the
famous magazine for girls and boys, is
r sued by the same publishers, grows apace.
About 100,000 copies of the Christmas
(December) number were sold, while the
January number has been for some time
out of print.. In February, there is a full
. account of the Obelisk, richly illustrated
from sketches and photographs, showing
the great monolith in all stages of mov-
