How to Increase the Yield of Fruit
Increased fruit crops are more often the result of good manage

The trees absorb plant foods-that is, nitrogen, phosphoric acid
and potash-from the soil just the sarme as any other crop. Experi

well recognized that " return to the land what the tree removes if you
would expect the best results" has become an axiom with the best

On Jan. 19, 1805, Dr. Manners-Sut

Returned by the Glacier.
One of the first instances on record
of a body returned by a Swiss glacier
is that of the Hamel accident, which
took place in 1820. Several guides
were swept down by an avalanche and
hurled into a crevasse. Hamel prophe
sied that the glacier would yield them
up again in the course of a thousand
years. but Dr. Forbes believed that
the end of the glacier woild be reach
ed by the bodies in forty years. This
statement was considered bold, but
its accuracy was borne out by the
event. In forty years the flow of ice
brought the bodies to light.
In 1866 Henry Arkwright was lost
in a glacier. In just thirty-one years
his brother received a telegram from
the mayor of Chamouni that the body
was found. Every article of clothing
was intact. His name and regiment
could be read clearly on his handker
chief, and his gold pencil case opened
and shut as easily as when he last
used it three decades before.-"True

Why the Earth Cannot Explode.
The theory is frequently advanced
that planets and even suns sometimes
explode and that the earth may some
day blow up like a bombshell. No
celestial body the slze of the earth
ould possibly explode. If the. entire
molten interior of our globe could be
replaced with nitroglycerin and deto
aated the- explosion would not lift the
earth's crust. In other words, if we
issume that the crust of the earth is
from fifty to a hundred miles in thick
ess it would require something much
m~ore powerful than even nitroglycerin
to burst the shell. It is necessary only
to do a little figuring to see that the
pressure of the earth's crust at a
lepth of from fifty to a hundred miles
far exceeds the pressure exerted by
the most powerful hig:h explosive.

Marriage In Japan.
A Japanese husband is allowed only
one wife. butio marry is sometimes a
much more serious matter than with
us. Either the husband must be form
ally adopted into the family of the
wife or the wife into the family of the
husband, the couple being absorbed
into one family and subject to its
discipline. As a rule, this custom
weighs more heavily on the bride than
on the husband, for she must not only
obey her husband, but every membei
of his family of an older generation
than himself: hence a young woman
often longs for old age, so that she
may wield authority over the youngel
generations. To bring about a mar
riage in Japan an intermediary is ap
pointed, whose duty it is to introduce
the parties and to look to every ar
rangement of the wedding. He re
mains through life the guide, philos
opher and friend of the married cou

The custom of saying "God bless

Pegs marked the tankard at intervals
beyond which the drinker was not t<

vice proved the means of aggravating
the evil it was intended to remedy, foi

conduct voted with only one dis

court. This strike experiment was
actually made. The judges sat, bu
