FRST BALL GAME,
It Was Played in Hoboken,
N. J., in 1846.
SHORT HISTORY OF BASEBALL
How the First Club Was Orgmalsed-The
Kind of Cats and Balls That Were Bsed
and Bow the Game Itas Grown Snace
Baseball originated in 1845 in New York
city. There was then In vogue a sport called
"town ball. In that game there werebases,
or "eorners" as they were called, around
which the striker of a fir ball was required
to run, but there were no baseme to guard
them, and the runner was put out by being
hit with the ball thrown directly at him by
the fielders, the ball used being wholly of
aoft guam. There is not the slightas proof
whatever that this sport was a modiAkmtion,
as baa been claimed, of the Englh school
game of rounders On the contrary there is
abundant proof that it was a purly original
In te yar above mentioned some of the
mnst enthuilastic admirers of town hail held
a meeting to devisewaysandmeansbywhich
it might be mproved. A committee was ap
pointed for that purpose, and at a esbsequent
meeting a series of playing rules was reported
and adopted, as was also sggestion that the
game should thenceforward beknown asbae
bell, Ind the gentlemesn preitat thia and
there formally organized the arse meball
club ever formed, calling it the Knicker

years ago on the 2sd of September, which

Practically a deod letter. They were evaded

A Perfeet Gentleman Not Wanted.
Capt. Anson has scores of applications
daily from ambitious pitchers who are anx

list. The "old man," however, takes stock
in but few applicants. If he sees promise of
a "good un" he is always willing to give a
trial, but many are called and few are
chosen. The other day a local baseball en
thtsiast went into Spaulding's and told An
son of a great pitcher whom hoe had discov

the young twirler was also a perfect gentle

A Swine Breeder Describes a Plan foe
Measuring Swine in Connection with the
score Canrd That May Be practiced by
In the annexed cuts are given a plan
for measuring swine in connection with
the score card that was recently described
and illustrated in Swine Breeder's Journal.
Swine breeder says: "I would take
straight edge and rule. Lay straight on
the back of hog No. L It wil fit his back
almost the entire length.
PLAN FOR MEASURING OGS.
"Now," explains the swine breeder, "if
it fit the entire length, and would give
the animal full score on back, and if the
lower line of the side were straight
would also score full. If the ham was
deep, thick and even curve down on to
the hock and square on the back (part or
nearlyso) would score full and would take
all parts that were even, round and square
where required and give full score. Now
take the No. 1 cut. It is almost straight
on the back, but not entirely so. Score
seven points or cut one point; lower line
not quite so important a part of the hog,
cut one point, although is more off from
straight line'than line of back. The has
in No. 1 Would call good, while n No. 2
the ham is off at least three points, the
dotted lines showing where it is, of
the worst. The line of back shows also a
bad measurement. The distance from
back line of No. 2 is four times as much
as on No. 1. I would want the heart
measurement as much or more than the
Bank measurement. The shoulder I
would want morelike No. 1. The dotted
line on No. 2 shows deficiency as well as
showing by lines that hack and lower line
are deficient several points."
PLAN FOR MEASURINOG ROGS.
Without straight edge and rule or tape
we could not get at the exact score where
two hogs are very nearly alike. There
are more No. 2 hogs in the show than No.
i, and No. 1 will score nearer seventy
points than ninety-five or ninety-eight.
The ninety point hogs, according to the
authority quoted, are yet to be grown.
Corn the Great American Crop.
r Corn, or maize, is the great American
r tillage crop. There is no other of half its
I-area. Wheat has nearly half and cotton
a quarter of its breadth. It is sufficient
I to cover Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, with a
a slice of Iowa in addition. Its area last
year, though reduced by dronught, was 81
per cent. of that of all cereals together,
and its product was 55 pr cent. It is
now grown in every state and territory in
Sthe Union, though sparingly in those of
high elevations. in the Rocky Mountain
region. The supply as population in
creases is enlarged rather than dizin
ikea It was 26.5 bushels per head in
18O,'.0 in 1860, 29.7 in 1870 and 85 in
The crop, large as it is, is expoited in
small'roportion. Only 4 per cent. of the
production of seventeen years has gone
abroad for a market. The home market
is 96 per cent. of all, and its relative
abundance or scarcity makes the price.
If scarce, the price is high, and foreigners
decline to buy; if low enough to compete
with foreign feeding stuffs a larger quan
tity is exported. Neither Liverpool nor
Chicago makes the price, but the farmers
and country feeders, who use five-sixths
of all. It is a crop of which railways
carry but a small part. Less than one.
fifth crosses state lmhn. Half is used for
feeding for milk or flesh, one-tenth for
human food and four-tenths for the food
of working animals. For spirits scarcely
1 per cent. is used.
The prospect for the present year is for
the largest area ever grown of this dis.
tinctively American crop. Aside from the
area intended for grain there are millions
of acres drilled for forage, the silo and
the summer dairy. No other plant will
produce so much nutritious feed on a
gven area. No other is worth so much
for American tillage.
Salicylle Acid for Preserving Fruit.
Although the use of salicylic acid in
wines and preserved fruits has been for
hidden in France, yet in Germany and
some othercountries its use is increasing.
In regard to the quantity ef acid to be
used, Dr. F. Von Hoyden, of Dresden,
recommends for most purposes one tdrachm
(about two teaspoonfuls) of crystallized
acid to every three pounds of fruit. The
jars may also be covered with white paper
soaked in an alcoholic solution of salicylic
acid. In manufactured preserves, mar
malades, etc., two ounces of acid are re
quired for every hundred weight of pulp.
Raw fruit can be preserved a long time
when wrapped in clean, salicylated paper.
The Juice of berries or any other kind of
fruit will keep well for more than a year
If treated with salicylic acid at the rate
of one drachm to three pounds of juice.
This leaves the addition of sugar op
Feeding Apple Pomace to Cows.
Chemical analysis shows that applq
pomace has a higher feeding value than
turnips, beets or potatoes. But it must
be fed judiciously in order to obtain its
full value. For instance, a cow cannot
thrive on an exclusive diet of pomace;
indeed she will harm herself, doubtless,
if left to help herself unrestrained to a
load of pomace dumped down within her
reach. On the other hand, a peck, say,
of this substance per day, fed along with
the ration given to horned stock, will
prove decidedly advantageous.
