A curious effect of the plague in India
has been a sudden increase iih the num
ber of pearls reaching the London mar
ket, and a consequent marked fall in
prices. This is not due to unusual in
dustry on the part of the divers, but
to the fact that the native dealers at
Bombay have been in such haste to
quit the stricken city that they have
eagerly disposed of their wares at far
below the customary market value. One
English firm of importers of Indian
pearls has accumulated a stock which,
if placed suddenly on the market, it is
estimated, would send down quotations
fully 25 per cent.
The Washington Post quotes an Iowa
man as saying that the farmers of
Iowa are making money out of the cow.
"The Iowa cow," he says, "has proved

has become firmly established as one
of the institutions of the land. In the
county of Jones the farmers have in
bank deposits over $3,000,000, accord

Farmers in the Red River Valley are
in great distress because they have no
seed wheat for the spring sowing, and
200 of them recently held a meeting, at
which they drew up a vigorous appeal
to the Minnesota Legislature for aid.
This condition of affairs is not due to
any lack of foresight on the part of the
farmers in the four or five counties in
volved, but to the great floods of last
spring, which completely destroyed the
growing crops. If some means are not
adopted to assist them in procuring
seed grain, hundreds of these farmers
will have to allow their lands to lie
idle, and they and their families will
suffer even more than at present.

By the census just completed lan
France, the population of that country
is shown to be 38,517,975, which is an
increase of only 1q15,027 over the popu
lation it had in 1891. This is an omi
nous showing, but the Minister of the
Interior is trying to minimize the alarm
it has produced by pointing out that of
late years there has been a large emi
gration to the colonies, especially to
Algeria, and that more troops are now
kept in remote' possessions than form
erly. At the same time, he is com
pelled to confess that there is a marked
tendency in the population to remain
almost stationary, and that it does not
increase in anything like the same pro
portions as its neighbors. While in
twenty-four departments the inhabi
tants have increased, there has been an
absolute diminution in sixty-three.
Oddly enough, this census shows that
fewer foreigners are settled in France
than was the case in 1891. In that year
the number of the alien residents was
given as 1,101,798, while now it is 1,027,
191. This falling off is attributed to
the law on nationality promulgated in
1889, and also to the efforts made to pro
tect the interests of the French work
man against foreign rivals.
EXPENSIVE BRASS BANDS.
Over Ten Thousand Dollars for a Jewelled
The writer was recently accorded the
privilege of a peep into the museum at

largest firms of brass instrument mak
ers in London. Here are to be seen
types, fac-similes and models of every
kind of musical instrument that the
mind of man has ever devised, invented
In one corner is a duplicate of what
is believed to be the most costly pre
sentation cornet ever produced. It was
made to the order of the late Czar of
Russia, and is of sterling silver, richly
graven with various devices, among
which the arms of the imperial house
of Romanoff figure conspicuously. The
whole of the ornamentation is of beaten
gold filigree work, and the "bell" of
tue instrument is thickly incrusted with
rubles and emeralds. Its net value is a
trifle over 2,000 guineas.
A melancholy interest attaches to a
battered and blood-stained bugle which
was picked up on the field of Isan.l
wana. In add.uon to the dark patches
-which were once splashes of wet
blood--sundry ftagments of wooly hair

by the Rao's big drummer, which was
sent over here to be prepared and
mounted, was taken from an animal
killed by his highness, and measured
over sevep feet in length. It is lined
throughout with heavy corded crimson
ilk, and the brute's eyes are simulated
by a pair of big yellow diamonds.
Another very fine band was made
three years ago to the order of the late
Shah of Persia. All the instruments
were of pure silver-which, by the way,
does not give forth so good a sound as
brass, besides being far heavier to
handle---inlaid with gold. The total
cost of this band _ luxe was a trii1e
under 3,000 guineas. A very different
kind of a band was that made last yea:r,
by the same firm, for the Mimkish In
dians, a tribe of savages living near
Alert Bay, in British Columbia. The
band is nearly all drum, and the mouth
pieces of the few brass instruments are
tipped with india rubber, to obviate the
inoonvenience of applying metal to the
lips in a temperature of some 30 or 40
degrees below zero.

* THE JACK RABBIT CROP.
A Way Discovered for Utilizing It in
The Kansas Jack rabbit, which from
time immemcrial has been accorded the
unquestionable freedom of the prairibs,
with only an occasional Jack rabbit
round-up to disturb his peaceful pos
session of t he fields, henceforth must
be ever on the alert, for a price has
been set upon his head.
Thousands upon thousands of dollars
are thrown away every winter because
sportsmen do not know that jack rab
bits hides are valuable. Sporting clubs
and individual hunters kill many thou
sands of the lithe-limbed jacks every
winter simply for the sport of killing.
Occasionally a cargo of the rabbits thus
slain are sent to the relief committees
in the larger cities for gratuitous dis
tribution among the poor, and many a
family in the tenement districts of the
great cities has sat down thankfully[
to a steaming hot dinner of jack rabbit
soup, a dish not to be scorned by any
lover of game meats. But despite the
inroads of hunters upon the ranks of*
the Kansas jack rabbits they have fol
lowed the Scriptural injunction to in
crease and multiply until they are so
numerous in some counties as to be re
garded as pests.
A number of dealers in hides in vari
ous cities in Kansas at last have awak
ened to the fact that jack rabbit hides,
known in commerce as American hare
pelts, are in great demand in the East
ern markets, and notices similar to the
following are appearing in many papers
throughout the State:
'We will -buy nicely handled, cased
Jack rabbit skins at 3 cents each; open
ed or damaged half price; culls and
pieces, 3 cents a pound. Must be per
fectly dry and free of meat."
The buyers say that these are almost
New York prices. A skilled rabbit
hunter at these prices may easily make
$2 a day, besides having his usual sport.
The skins of the jack rabbits are used
for making hats. The best quality hats
are made from fur, and the fur has
heretofore been obtained from Austra
lia, where the rabbits are successfuliy
disputing the possession of the country
with the human inhabitants. The skins
go through a'shaving machine, and the
fur is shaved off very close. It is then
cleansed and subjected to a variety of
of processes until it comes out a per
fect head covering, shapely and stylish
and ready for the bandbox. It requires
about a dozen rabbit skins to make one
It has been found that the fur of the
black-tailed Kansas jack rabbit is
superior to all other materials for hat
making purposes, as it is longer and
stronger, and there is very little waste
in the process. The hides are larger,
too, and more hats may be made from
a given number of Kansas jack rabbit
skins than from a corresponding num
ber of the hides of other varieties of
rabbits. When your hat blows off in
a gale and goes bounding away down
the street it may not be altogether the
fault of the wind; who knows but that
the hat is still instinct with the life of
the Kansas jack rabbit, and revelling
in a race with the wind? For the Kan
sas variety of jack rabbit is by far the
fleetest of the whole rabbit family. A
black-tailed jack rabbit will leave a
greyhound hopelessly behind in a race.

results showed that when the empty

pounds and 39.5 pounds, respectively;
in the mud, under the same conditions
of load and speed, the pulls were 35J
and 50.7 pounds for the iron wheel
and 23.1 and 21.2 pouhds for the pneu
matic tire. Other tests consistiig of
pulls of varying speeds over macadam,
paved and ordinary roads, in all of
these the pneumatic tire showing a sav
ing in pulling power of from thirty to
nearly fifty per cent. The main fea
ture of interest in Michelin's experi

that the actual amount of power re

pneumatic tires was so much less thaa

FROC-CATCHING FOR MARKET.
Marylanders Do a Thriving Business in
Capturing the Batrachians.
Within recent years a large trade
has grown up in Kent County in pro
viding frogs for the market, says the
Baltimore Sun. The catching of frogs
for their legs has become a business,
and the financial returns are rather
handsome to the feaw engaged in the
industry. Along the small streams
tributary to the larger rivers the big
green or mottled black frogs may be
found by thousands under the tufts of
flag or coarse grass. One frog shipper
has sent to the lialtimore market hun
dreds of frogs' legs each season, and
has so increased the demand by the su
perior size and flavor of the Kent prod
uct that he finds it impossible to meet
the requirements of the trade.
Frog le-s are consumed principally
by the patrons of the principal restau
rants. Frogs when cooked are a deli
cate white meat, and much more tender,
than fried chicken, very nourishing and
easily digested, and are recommended,
when stewed, as one of the best diets
for invalids with delicate stomachs.
Only the hind legs and quarters are
csten, and they are sent to the market
ready skinned and salted fer cooking.
The market frog catcher's method of
capturing his game is to secure a small,
flat-bottomed boat, easy of manage
ment. nad in the later afternoon, when
everything is still, he noiselessly
pushes his little craft along the shore
of the small creeks and cc:v s. The bull
frogs, as they are commonly known,
because of their deep, resonant voices,
are found sitting in a shallow pool or
in the mud under tufts of heavy grass
or flag. The novelty and sport of cap
turiag this wily game are worth a row
of ten miles on a hot afternoon. Two
and sometimes three ordinary sized
percu hooks are bound together and
baited with red flannel. The hooks are
attached to a line of about four feet
and the line is attached to a long, tough
angle rod. Approaching the game
noiselessly and with extreme caution,
the red flannel is gently moved within
a few inches of the frog's mouth. As
quick as lightning and with a sharp
croak the frog dashes forward and
swallows bait, hook and all. Then tol-'
lows as gamey struggles as any sports
man ever saw with hook and line.
The amateur frog hunter usually pro
vides himself with a cat-and-rat rifle,
the shells loaded with mustard seed
shot, and shoots his game, but this is
unsportsmanlike and is only popular
with the uninitiated. Mill ponds, too,
are favorite haunts, for the frog, and
on a clear night the neep roar of the
bull frog chorus may be heard for more
than a mile.
The old-time Kent County cook has
sorved the mysteries of the perfect
preparation of the frog, and those who
do not know how delicious frogs' legs
may be made have many a dainty dish
in store for them. After skinninghe
legs should be placed in cold wter
for several hours, then placed on a
plate and salted. In several hours
more they are ready for cooking. The
legs of medium sized frogs are prefer
able, as thq very large legs are liable
to be coarse in the texture of flesh.
The most popular way in Kent to cook
them is by frying, .but there are other
ways of making dishes of them to
please the palate of the most exacting
The Diver's Heavy Dress.

And Consider t06 AIl.lmportant Fact,
That in addressing Mrs. Pinkham yeu are con
Ading your private, ills to a woman-a woman
whomse experience in treating woman's
diseases is greater thazi'that of any liv
ing physician-male or female.
You can talk freely to a woman
when it is revolting to relate you*'
private troubles to a man-besides,
aman does not understand-simply
because he is a man.
Many women suffer in silence and
drift along from bad to worse, know
ing full well that they oughttohave
immediate assistance, but a natural
modesty impels them to shrink from
exposing themselves to the questions
and probably examinations of even
their family physician. It isunneces
sary. Without money or price you
can consult a woman, whose
knowledge from actual experi
p ence is greater than any local
physician in the world. The fol
lowing invitation is freely offered;
accept it in the same spirit:
MRIS. PINKHAM'S STANDING INVITATION.
Women suffering from any form of female weakness tre invited to promptly
eommunicate with Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass. All letters are received,
opened, read and answered by women only. A woman can freely talk of her
private illness to a woman; thus has been established the eternal confidence be
tween Mrs. Pinkham and the women of America which has never been broken.
Out of the vast volume of experience which she has to draw from, it is more
than possible that she has gained the very knowledge that will help your
cas e She asks nothing in return except your good-will, and her advice has
relieved thousands. Surely any woman, rich or poor, is very foolish if she does
not take advantage of this generous offer of assistance.-Lydia E. Pipkhan

them, nor do I believe any one else can afford
not to use them. They are a wonder.".,sj.j.
