In the report of the horticulturist of
the Maine Experimental Station for 1S91
certain points in the culture of tomatoes
are discussed. The following is a sum
mary of the experiments: 1. An import
ant requisite to successful tomato culture
is that the plants be kept growing vigor
ously, a condition involving rich soil and
frequent tillage. 2. Frequent transplant
ing makes stocky plants. 3. Other things
being equal, the earliness and productive
ness of tomatoes is in direct proportion
to the earliness of setting in the field.
4. Trimming plants after a part of the
fruit had set increased the yield by more

How It. Was Done.
The Couriei Journal in its State con
vention notes says : " Ex-Senator, but
now Railroad Commissioner Poyntz, a
delegate from Mason County, let tho cat
out of the wallet as to how the Chairman
of tho Railroad Commissioners was
elected at Frankfort the other day. In
the first place, the ex-Senator wants it
understood that the other two Commis
sioners were for hiin, but with his usual
diffidence he gently pushed tho honor
aside. Finally it was agreed that they
should cut in a book, and that the one
cutting nearest the letter A in tho second
line of the first page should bo Chairman.
Tho contestants then thrust their daggers
between tho leaves of an innocent literary
work. Mr. Woodson and ex-Senator
Poyntz both cut U, while Mr. McChord
cut E, and was declared Chairman."

Three ragged newsboys woro trying
to sell the earlier editions of the after
noon papers. A man carrying a large
basket of fine looking oranges on bis
shoulder passed close by. Tho motion
of his body loosened one of tho biggest
and ripest and it fell to tho ground. The
man kept on, not noticing or caring for
tho loss. Tho orange lay upon the pave
ment for about half a minute unseen.
Then tho largest of tho threo ragged
urchins spied it, and with a cry of do
light ho ran over and picked it up. It
was natural to suppose that ho would
proceed to eat it all himself, but instead
of doing so ho called his companions and
exhibited his find. They eyed it greed

sliaro in tho coveted fruit tho finder di
