What a MrtfistUt lrnd Wlilln Watching
Pioarly every ono Is familiar with
tho burying beetle, and many have.
perhaps, watched Its operations. No-
tlclng that dead moles and other small
animals laid on the loose ground soon
disappeared, Prof. Gleditsch concluded
to lnvostigato tho cause. Aeeordingly,
ho placed a mole in the garden, nnd on
tho morning of tho third day found it
buried, some threo Inches below the
surface. Though wondering why this
service waa performed for the dead
mole, yet, as ho saw only four beetles
under tho carcass, he ro-buried it and in
six days found it overrun with maggots.
It was not until then that the thought
struck him that theso maggots were
the offspring, of tho beetles he had
seen, and that they performed the bu
rial rites In order to provide a place
to deposit tholr oggs, where the newly
hatched young might have food for
their nourishment. Continuing hi
observations, Mr. Gleditsch placed
lour or these beetles under a glass
case, with two dead frogs. Ono pair
burled tho flrst frog in twelve hours,
and on the third day the second one
was similarly disposed of. Tho pro-
lessor then gnvo them a dead linnet,
and a pair of the beetles set to work to
bury it. They pushed out tho dirt
from beneath tho body: then tho male
drove tho fomnlo away, and worked
alone for about five hours, turning the
linnet around in a more convenient po
sition, and occasionally mounting the
body to tread It down. After rot-ting
for an hour It proceeded, us before, al
ternately excavating and nullini? the
bird from below, and then treading it
down Irom above. It was buried by
the end of tho third day. In fifty days
tno lour beetles had burled four frogs
throe small birds, two fishes, ono molo,
two grasshoppers, the entruils of a fish,
and two morsels of tho lungs of an ox.
Storing Apples for Long Keeping.
There Is a dlffereneo In tho keeping
qualities of apples In different years
that nobody has been fullv able
to account for. Occasionally a year
occurs, to all outward appearances nt
excsptlonably different from others,
when windfalls will keep as well as
carefully picked apples in former ones.
Suoh a dl (Terence can not be laid to the
handling of the fruit, but must be
owing to atmospheric influences. Ap
ples will endure without injury a much
lower temperature than will potatoes,
and the cooler they arc kept without
freezing tho better. Dry, cool cellars
are generally preferred by farmers as
a store place for their barreled apples,
but of late years some growers claim
that this fruit keeps better in moist
than in dry places, always providing
said place Is cool. When kept In cel
lars, good ventilation 1b nocessary in
all cases. When barreled in an or
chard and not shipped awny at once,
tho apples are better to be put up in
tiors under the trees and protected
from the rain and sun by boards than
to be put in buildings. Some persons
leave the barrels all on the ground in
the shade and uncovered, claiming
that they keep cooler on the grouud
than whon piled up. Apples raised on
rich alluvial lands will prove poor
keepers. For the bost keeping the or
chards should be on high or hilly
lauds and not too rich, a, Y. HwWti.
The Farmer as a Man,
The farmer in the struggle for ex
istence should not forget that ho is a
man creutod in the image of his Maker,
and possessed of great capacities and
wonderful capabilities. How many
men we see devoting their whole ener
gies striving to boo how much riches
and worldly possessions they can ac
quire, seemingly scurcoly to think of
trying to see how much of a man they
may become. How e!dom wo esti
mate the s.Iue of pny life experience
by the eftVct It ha. hud l.i u
more kindly, more consldointe of
others, more setf-donying and more
firmly resolved to do right. Tho
building up of a noble, pure, grand
character is the Brndet work a man
can engage in, and one that is often
better promoted by what arv generally
regarded us the reverses in life lliun
by successes. What are generally ro
gnrdod us the fcuccesses iu ll'o are
often but hlndrnncos to the mini's be
coming a true man, mnking him more
elfish, more narrow-minded and
dwarfing his manhood. Whatever a
man's worldly success, or whatever the
lack of it, he yot can bo a man in the
true sense of the word, and us such be
the full equal of any other njun. St.
