Thut Sea Serpent.
Wo ask tho Id nd forbearance of
our readers while we revert to tho
sea sarpont. It was seen on Sunday
last as far up the Hudson River as
Rondout, and Is suspected of hav
ing set fire to the steamer Daniel
Drew. Hevernl boatmen nnd some
boys who were in swimming were
ablo to describe tho monster. Its
head was raised about six feet out
of tho water. This agrees, so far as
it goes, with the description of the
sea serpent recently seen on tho
North Atlantic coast. The snake
seen at Rondout is undoubtedly tho
the same one which somo tlmo ago
almost started a panic among the
bathers on the seacoast. We
do not feel obliged to explain how
It came to bo disporting Itself in the
Hudson River. It may have mndo
the same mistake that Hcndrick
Hudson did in his effort to discover
a Northwest passage.
But to resume tho description :
Tho Rondout observers say the ser
pent had a dirty white throat, a
mottled back and a fin which ex
tended tho entire length of the body,
or rather as much oftlio body as
could be seen, which, was flftyflve
feet. Now, this description is much
more in detail than that furnished
fromthe seashore. The river is not
as wide as the ocean and his snake-
ship hadn't such a wide field for
We call attention to tho accuracy
with which the length of the ser
pent (or that part of it above the
surface of the water) is given. It
was not an even hundred feet or
flty or seventy-five, but it was fifty-
five feet. A few Inches either way
may have been dropped, but that is
nothing to make a fuss about. The
Rondouters unquestionably meas
ured tho serpent with a foot rule.
A Y. World.
Two Peculiarities of Girls.
Now tho propensity for wading,
which is deeply implanted in the
female bosom, is inexpllciblo. 'Un
less a girl has tho influenza or bun
yon, she cannot resist tho tempta
tion to paddle in the salt water
and get her clothing uncomfort
ably wet. This is a subject full of
interest to me, from the casting
aside of the shoes nnd stockings 'to
their resumption. It is a fact pret
ty well known In male circles that
ladles prefer sitting on the ground
when pulling on and off their stock
ings to occupying a chair or bench.
But having my doubts as to tho
Inflexibility of this rule, I deter
mined to convince myself by ex
periment. After the setting of my
traps, to wit, tho benches, I had
not long to wait. A bevy of young
ladles, one or two of whom I recog
nized, came trooping down to tho
beach, chattering and laughing
merrily. They evidently wonder
ed who had been kind enough to
place benches there for their ac
commodation, took possession of
them at once gleefully, confessed
that they wore just too delighted
for anything and seemed perfect
ly and unrestrainedly happy. I
was rejoiced at having disproved
a mouldy theory; but alas, my sat
isfaction was short lived. When
my guests made up their minds it
was timo to wtulo they sprang
from tho benches, sat on tho beach
and tugged away at shoes and
stockings in the old fashion. On
tho following day resolved to give
my experiment every chance, I
had my hirelings strew a quantity
of broken bottles, empty oyster
cans, and rubbish of various kinds
along tho beach, and sat under my
umbrella and watched. Tho girls
came down tho same hour, seemed
a little dismayed at first, but, ral
lying, set to work industriously
and soon had a (dear spaco upon
which thoy squatted, not taking
tho least notlco of tho benches this
time. Thon I put up my umbrella
and moved sadly away. Tho habit
is an Incurable one. Eve must
have sat her fair form down In the
garden mould of Edon when ad
justing her first garments from the
historic fig teee, and left tho habit
as an inheritance to her daughters
for all time.

Rules for Highways.
Make tho public roada neat and
smooth and pleasant and profitable
to travelers and In driving to mar
ket. Plant shade trees three or four
rods apart along the line, to allow
air to clrculale, sun to shine, and
mud to dry.
Never make the public high
way a barnyard, nor leave wag
ons, plows and machines to encum
ber tho road.
Never throw rubbish of any
kind Into highways In order to get
rid of it, nor deposit cordwood,
logs or timber at roadsides to fright
en passing horses.
Keep the roadside smooth, mow
tho grass for hay and thus securo
a good track when the centro of
of the road is encumbered with im
passible snow drifts.
Remove all tho loose stones
from tho wheel track once a month,
and all fixed stoneswhleh strike and
break tho wheels, jar tho loads,
rack tho harness and tire the. hors
es. All owners who build their hous
es facing square the public roads
should at least show the same re
spect to these roads that they do to
their own fields by excuding all
Never make a highway of muck,
sods or soft material scraped from
the side ditches, which is worked
into deep mud in wet weather, but
draw them Into the barn yard for
tho compost heap.
Never drive horses across a rail
way without first looking both ways
or, if in the dark, without listening.
It is better to take this care 1(1(1
times than bo crushed by a locomo
tive once by its neglect.
Where the road has not a dry
bottom cut a ditch in the middle
three feet deep, and lengthwise
with it witli side-scrape ditches at
depressions, and 1111 it with gravel
or broken stone, coarse below and

He Had No More to Say.
"Frank," said the President,
sharply, from behind ids newspa
jier. "Here," responded his wife,
answering to her name. "I see by
this paper that one photographer
got sixty of your negatives."
"That's correct." "And another
seventeen." "Accurate again," she
replied, counting on her fingers.
"Seventy-seven in all, Frank."
"You aro quite clever in addition,
G rover. Your matliomatics has not
been neglected, I see," nnd there
was just a little edge on tho smile
she gave him. "Permit me to re
mark, Mrs. Cleveland, that I don't
like it. It strikes me ns rather too
much of a good thing." "Ah, in
deed V" very sarcastically. "Well,
suppose, now, for instance, that in
stead of giving these men soventy
soven negatives after I had married
you I had given you just one before
I married you, thon what?" "Urn
urn," he grunted, scratching his
chin. "Um, Frances; I take it all
back. You aro tho President of
the United States, and I haven't a
word to say."
The Swiftest Bird.
In answer to a correspondent tho
New York Sun says: Thomas Al
exander, in his book entitled "Game
Birds of tho United States," says
that wild ducks, unaided by tho
wind, fly from 00 to 100 miles
an hour, and that tho blue-
winged teal, "going down the wind
at tho top of his speed, will make
fully 150 miles an hour, possibly
more." Tho swiftest bird on the
wing is tho frigate bird, a sort of
nautical bird of prey. Sailors be
liovo that it can start with tho peep
of dawn from the coast of Africa
and, following tho trade winds, land
on the American const before sun
set. It can undoubtedly fly more
than 200 miles an hour, but wo do
not know of any trustworthy record
of tho speed of which it Is capable.

It is stated that New York dairy
men arc favorable to the substitu
tion of sheep for cows, believing
that in producing choice mutton
and lamb they will derive larger
profits than from milk.
Nearly nil plants require more

other time; thoy requirs more in a
warm temperature than In a cold;
more when in a state of active
growtli than when at rest.

Better disposo of honey as it
conies in, at a fair price, than wait
for better market and run all sorts
of risks of losing or injuring tho
honey. Keeping tho market full of
old stock does much to destroy the
demand of any kind of honey.
It is not good policy to dry hay
to brittleness before drawing it
from the meadow, for that causes
waste in handling and reduces
quality. Grass is well cured when
it will ratio slightly in the handling,
and thon is tho time to store it.
When milking have a pail of
clean wator in which to wash the
cows teats, that no filth or dried
skin may fall into tho milk-pail.
It is not an agreeable thought that
such foreign substance have ever
mixed with tho milk oven if they
can be strained out.
One of the chief reasons why or
chards should not be cropped is be
cause they require cultivation dur
ing the summer season. When
roots arc destroyed by the work
ing of the ground it often results
in permnaneiit injury to tho trees,
especially if done in a late season.
Ono kindof clover plantjis as near
ly worthless us any weed that grow.
This is the common sweet clover,
which grows thriftily by tho road
side on the poorest land. It is a great
pity, for it starts early and grows
luxuriantly. Even when young and
tender cows will not eat It, nor will
any other stock that wo know of.
It is fair beo pasture, but not better
than white clover or many other
plants good for other purposes.
Gravel serves tho same purpose
witli birds that teeth do with quad
rupeds. Tho grinding In tho gizzard
may bo heard by placlngtho ear near
thoowls when their stomnchs aro
full and digestion Is taking place.
Tho sound of tho gravel-stones
grinding and rubbing against the
grain is especially audible in the
case of ducks that aro about half
grown, at which tlmo they are In
creasing In sluo very fast, and di
gestion proceeds vory rapidly.
Tho fattening of sheep should bo
commenced before tho grass falls,
and half iv pint a day of grain Is
enough for a shoop at first. Thoy
should have roots or vegetables of
somo kind every day. In threo
months thoy can hour two quarts of
grain a day If they aro brought to it
gradually, and havo green food
onough to keep their stomachs in
order. Marketing half-fed shoop is
wasting what you havo given them.
Tho lust few pounds aro tho cheap

A well-known horticulturist says
lie had an npplo tree which bore
fruit every alternate year only, and
the fruit was vory small. Ho mado
It a yearly bearer, also greatly In
creased tho size of fruit, by thinning
out the small branches after the
fruit hnd formed, so as to remove
about half of It. The apples were
fully double In size and improved
in flavor. Its year for non-bearing
would find it full of blossoms, and
by removing half tho embryo apples
a good crop will rsult. This is a good
tiling to remember and try next
Tho Great Political Issue.
It Is not a manufactured issue,
but the inevitable outgrowth of
progress and the necessity of
adapting governmental processes
to changing conditions. On one
side of it are arrayed those wlto
find their profit in sustaining
abuses whereby the few arc en
riched at tlie expense of tho many
and whereby what aro really class
privileges aro maintained. On the
other side are tlioso who are awak
ening to a sense of how they aro
being burdened and realizing their
claims to a better state of affairs.
It may be said that this is no new
Issue; that It has long existed. This
is true; but it possesses a signifi
cance which it never did before
and which compels attention. Tlie
people sec more clearly into tho
nature of the issue, and there is no
mistaking the evidences of the dis
content which naturally prevails.
Tlie wonderful growth of the
country us well as tho interests of
the many calls for a purification in
public affairs. Irregularities in a
small business may be passed over
as of little consequence, but irreg
ularities In a vast establishment
cannot lie tolernted. There is too
much involved to permit of them.
The greater evil is tlie control of
the unscrupulous rich, over legisla
tion involving the obtaining of
unearned subsidies from the Gov
ernment directly and the power of
wringing tribute from the masses.
Irregularities in taxation, both di
rectly levied and through the tar
iff, call for correction. The people
can no longer bo deluded into the
belief that there can bo any honest
acquisition of single fortunes of
many millions solely through public
franchises. These corporation abu
ses and the whole mass of kindred
evils rendered possible through
corrupting the representatives of
the peoplo and the conduct of elec
tions must bo ended.
Hero wo have the general char
acter of an issue outlined which
cannot bo avoided. And looking
at tho records of the two parties in
the last Congress it is not difficult
to see what sides of tills issue the
Republican and Democratic parties
are respectively taking. The very
composition Qf tho Republican Sen
ate ought to be a revelation suf
ficiently plain of itself, but with
the talo of subsidies supported, for
feitures of unearned land grants
resisted, reforms In the land de
partment checked, Congressional
railroad attorneyships sustained,
more still of bad repute, its attitude
becomes absolutely unmistakable.
Tho Democratic Congressional rec
ord is in the other direction, and
the general tone of tho State Dem
ocratic platforms recently adopted
is the lino of tiio policy thus indi
cated. X Fast Young Mun.

for nppartment, service, lights, Ac,

will put intb plain English that
which followed : "But I didn't ortler

breakfast was prepared all tho

tlint you provide a regular table
d'hote breakfast every morning,
and charge for it whether your
guests take it or not?" "Yes, Mon
sieur; seo the menu? Hero it Is,"
and the firm yet polito landlord
produced his regular "a la carte."
My friend turned it upside down.
Then he carefully perused it. Then
lie said: "How much of this do you

"Anything you like, Monslour."
