The following from an exchange will
be of Interest to pensioners and others:
"It would not be out of the way to
say right here that the law forbids any
pensioner from bargaining, selling or
promising his quarterly pension to any
dealer or other persons, before It has
become due and been paid; and on the
other hand, all persons are forbidden
by law to accept the same In any man
ner as security for credit or otherwise.
The fine Is fixed at one hundred dollars
for any violation of the act, and Is
equal upon the soldier or dealer."
On May l;th the First National Dank

next train for Burlington, Iowa. He
was followed and arrested by a detec

Coffee Is higher than it has ever been
before for any considerable perold. The
coffee situation, therefore. Is tnterest-
ng nut to say serious. Gambling In It
a just n w wilder than In any stocks
or in auy other produce. The price has
advanced 100 per cent In a year, and, if
the lowest and highest prices are taken,
ISO per cent. If the present situation
continues the coffee drinker In the
nited States will pay 85CI.0O0.C00 more
for it than they paid In 1883, and 60,-
000,0X0 more than they paid in -1883.
the rise In price Is, therefore, equal to
the imposition of about tl on every
man, woman and child (whether coffee
drinkers or not) in the country. And

"No medicine is so efficacious In case

repeatedly been observed that an onion

When lo Cut Hay.
Hay harvest will soon be here, and
we wish to have a fow words with our
hay making friends before tbey put the
mower In the Seld. It Is supposed
that every farmer wishes to make
choice hay. Now there Is much more
In successful bay making than simply
cutting and curing It. The first and
most Important step la deciding when
the grass Is just ready to cut. It
should not be too young nor should it
be too old. If allowed to stand too long
the stalks stand tbe stalks harden and
the woody liber increases and much of
Its nutritive value is lost. Therefore
young hay, if we may use the term. Is
much the best both for the farmer and
his stock. It will not only command a
better price in the market, but It is
more satisfactory and profitable to
feed. A pound of young hay may
safely be said to contain as much nu
tritive matter as a pound and a half of
hay made of grass whose stalks have
been allowed to harden and much of
the juice of the grass return to the
soil Instead of being cured with the
hay, making it more prolltnble and
nuttitious. Then again do not cut
mora than can be taken care of well
before the dew tails on It in the eve
ning. And then there Is no time saved
but rather lost In going Into the bay
Held to early, as the dew will dry off
the grass much faster standing than
after It Is cut. After raking it into the
windrows it is well to turn It once or
twice, aa new grass quickly perspires,
and as much moisture should be gotten
out of it as possible before it Is put In
shock. These should be strongly made
and well capped, if it is the intention
to allow them to remain in the field
any length of time, and when hauled
to the barn it Is well to pitch It in
loosely so that the air may circulate
through it well thus reducing the lia
bility of molding to a minimum. Ex.
The Salvation Army, while parading
tbe streets of Wichita, Kan., last week,
were arrested. They were afterwards
released by friends going their bail.
The grouuds for arrest were that tbey
made so much noise that they caused
teams to run away.

A Blow at Farmers.
"Isn't the, anti-poverty league of New
York wasting ita strength by striking
at emptiness instead of directing ita
blow at tbe true mark ? It bates prop
erty in land and proposes to annihilate
this species of proprietorship by conQ
catiug lands through excessive taxa
tion. But the force of this policy
would fall most heavily upon a class
of citizens, who, of all others, are least
able to bear it the millions of farmers
who work harder even harder than the
operatives in factories and working
men In the trade' unions and yet
barely make a living. The wealthy
classes in this country are not tbe laud
holders, but the owners ot personal
property. Tbe millionaires of New
York, as a rule, own little other land
than tbe lot on which their dwelling
stauds uud a heavy land tax would af
fect them but little. A score of men
might be named in New York whose
wealth eggregates 8HO,Oi.O,000, or aa
much as all tbe farms in Missouri are
valued at. But their wealth consists
Id bundles of paper representing shares
lu railroads, mines, oil wells, bonds
and money on deposit. They could
afford to suap their tiugers at a confis
catory laui tax, ainuu It would not
touch them. But it would break the
backs of a million small farmers whose
holdings, mortgaged for one bait their
value, do not jieid tbe in a net income
ot over t)l,t00 a year. Republican,

There are three ways of determining
wneu it is uecessaiy io water house
plauts. First, by the appearance of
the toil, it dry upon the surface, or If
upou feeling It with your lingers It
crumbles Into dust. Second, if upon
tapping the pot with the knuckles the
pot baa a sharp hollow sound like a
ring, which it does when tbe earth Is
dry, while the sound is a heavy thud
when the soil is moist. Third, by the
difference iu weight, Uie pots with dry
soil being much lighter than w hen the
earth Is moist.
Pinching off can be done generally
to good advantage. There is nothing
gained by allowing the small fruits to
make to much growth of stalks. Toma,

We have too much schooling and not
enough education in this country. Too
much skimming through text books
and not enough learning or thorough
acquisition. Our schools undertake to
teach too much, and the result It a vast
superabundance of supeiOclal scholar
ship, and but comparatively little edu
cation and genuine accomplishment.
Drawing it taught, but the public
schools turnout no draughtsmen; com
position it taught, and not one graduate
in a hundred can write a creditable
business letter, and before tbey can go
into practical business they are com
pel led to serve a long apprentlcshlp In
a counting room, and to on for quanti
ty and quality. It it a great mistake to
tuppose that our public school teaching
it the best the tun ever shown over.

the refusal and recovered 5U0. The

Thlt section was visited on Friday
evening last with one among tbe
heaviest rains that ever fell here. It
was a regular "root soaker and golly
washer," sure enongh. The uranehr,
and little ravines about town grew to
be raging torrents, and while very little
damage was done to property, ample
evidence was left of a big storm.
The water ran into the carpentersbop
of Brown & Wlggtngton and Creel A
Rldgell on Thornton avenue and pour
ed In a perfect torrent through Seveir
& Limerick's lumber yard, while down
on Lexington avenue it overflowed all
the lots from the place of Huse Jacob,
on the north tide clear to the crowing
at Tom N'ading's. Further down the
ravine north it moved out fences and
at the crossing of main street snapped

The brick yard of Mr. Parr in the
tooth part of the city received some
damages, but the loot was toon repair
At tbe brick yard of Fletcher Gra
ham, at tbe Gum Spring three mllea
southeast of town, tbe east end waa
washed off and we learn the damage
is estimated at 150, which It perhape
a fraction high.
During tbe storm a stray beam ot
lightning struck a residence owned by .
Charley Rice on Shaw street just north
ot Lexington avenue, which It occu
pied by Jim Blair, but beyond shiver
ing the cornice on the south end and
scattering a few shingles, no damage
was done, though Ueo. Jaoobt who
happened to be close, tayt It stunned
him and threw sand In his face.
The wind blew the rain into a num
ber ot residences and thlt resulted In a
few damaged carpets.
We have talked with many farmen
and tbe general expression is that little
or no damage wat done the growing
crops, further that done by washee
that occurred In many placet when
the soil was loose and tbe ground roll

bad aa might have been expected and
no fruit waa blown off to amount to
anything except tuch as wat defective
and would have fallen off anyway.-
On tbe publio roads a number of
small crotsiugs were washed out but
we ean bar of no serious or even
slight damage to any permanent bridge
structures, though In many placet th
bank will have to be looked after at
