; Perhaps the most interesting find,
- savin); those wondroos tombs in Booth
itnesia, was the ' "treasure of Gnar-
razar," discovered in 1R.sk. Some peaa-
; suits traveling near Toledo noticed ob
jects of gold and Jewel work washed
' partly mit of the ground by heavy
rains. They broke them to pieces and
. divided them. " Happily, an intelligent
' man heard the story in time, bought np
every fragment; pieced them all to
gether, and fled to Paris, where he sold
. the lot to the Mosee Clnny. The objects
proved to be eleven crowns mostly
."votive" of Gothic monarchs who ruled
Spain during the seventh century. Of
. the owner in two eases there is no
doubt at all, for they bear
his name in letters of gold hang
tag by gold chains from the cir
cles, with a jeweled pendant from each
letter. One bears the simple inscrip
tion: "Suinthila," who reigned from
21 to 81 A. D.: the other: "Eeccesvin
thus rex offorret." Bis date was 649
072 A. D. Two, if not more, are
queens' crowns. One, the largest, has
thirty big Sapphires and thirty pearls
of great size; below it hangs a cross set
! with large sapphires and pearls, which,
again. ias jeweled pendants. . But we
mutt not describe minutely objects
which are, perhaps, better known, to
antiquarians at least, than any' pieces
of goldsmiths' work existing. -The
"treasure of Hildesheim" also is
... priceless. It waa found by soldiers
digging a trench for siege practice near
the town of that name in I860. We can
not doubt that this glorious trouvaille
was the "campequippage" of some very
rich traveler, probably a Roman general
though conjecture has boundless field
for speculating; how it could find its
way to Hildesheim. which the Roman
armies never reached. There are stew
pan, pots, plates, a batterie de cuisine
complete, all of silver, exquisite in form
and in ornament; the legs, so to call
. them, of a table, stands for lamps, ,
and . other things indefinable, all
t silver and all lovely; a complete din
ner service, plates, dishes, cups, gob-
. lets, of beautiful Greek work, in silver,
with gold wreaths and attachments.
One might nay in truth that the gold
smith's art could not go beyond the
grace and richness of these articles
many of which are ascribed to the first
century A. D. had not the Russian
finds surpassed them. The Hildesheim
treasure is at Iterlin; the Russian at the
At inter palace. That, in truth, is glo
rious beyond imagining. Of one piece

ABSURDITIES IN SPELLING.
o(llah Writers Do Not Take KloSIr to
Any Chances In Their Orthographr.
Far be it from me to appear as the
defender of the "American spelling"
which the British journalists denounce.
This "American spelling" is' less ab-
r surd than the British spelling only in
so far aa it haa varied therefrom. Even
; in these variations there is abundant
- absurdity. . Once upon a time most
words that now are spelt with' a final
e had an added k. Even now both
ifriusn and' American usage re-
- , tains this k in hammock, although
, both British and Americans have drop-
ped toe needless letter from havoc;
while the British retain the k at the
end of almanack, and the Americans
have dropped it. Dr. Johnson
a reactionary in orthography as in
politics; and in his dictionary he wilful
ly put a final k to words like optick,
without being generally followed by
the publick as He would have spelt it.
Music was then musick, although, even
as late as Aubrey's time, it had been
musique. In our own day we are wit
nessing the very gradual substitution
of the logical technic for the form origi
nally imported from Franca technique.
As yet, so far as I have observed! no at
tempts have been made to modify the
foreign spelling of clique and oblique.
I am inclined to think that technic is
" " replacing technique more rapidly
should I say less slowly? in the United
: States than in Great Britain. ' We
Americans like to assimilate our words
' and to ' make them our own.
while the British have rather
fondness for foreign phrases. A
London journalist recently held np
to public obloquy as an "igno
rant Americanism" the word pro
gram, although he would have
found it act down in Prof. Skat's
"Etymological Dictionary": "Pro
- gramme was taken from the French, so
a recent writer reminds us. and in Vio
lation of analogy, seeing that, when it
was imported into English, we had al
. ready anagram, cryptogram, diagram.

, gram, is not common even in America,
... and British writers seem to prefer the
French form, as British speakers give a
French pronunciation tocharade, which
in America has long since been accept

stantly that there is no money in farm

Important Typewriter Decision.
"Judge Lacombe, sitting in the United
States Circuit Court here, has, on tha
motion of the Remington Typewriter
Company, granted an injunction against
the agents of the Franklin, restraining
the sale of that machine on account of
infringement of Remington patents.
The decision is an important one as it
proves the control of the fundamental
patents, and mav affect other makers
of typewriters. The Esmington people
have heretofore been quite passive, bat
it is stated on good authority that they
arc now likely to proceed against all
other typewriter manufacturing com
panies. in some cases purchasers of ma
chines which infringe Remington pat
ents may also be proceeded against for
infringement. Until these cases are
definitely settled this action will deter
many people from purchasing type
writers which are colorable imitations
of the Remington. To save a few dol
lars a man does not want to buy a ma
chine with a law suit attachment, espe
cially when the other machine is the
best." X. Y. Journalist. June 18, 189.

The disease shows Itself as soon as the

malady are the withered leaves on the

The cause of peach-leaf curl is a minute
fungus called Taphrina deformans. It
is closely related to the fungus which
causes "pluu pockets." i be mycelium

ABOUT BROAD TIRES.
One War ml Drawiae- Heavy Leads Ovat
There are 10 or 13 wagons in town
having old mowing machine wheels on
the running gear. These wheels and
axles cost only the price of old Iron.
The hay rack is only 36 inches high, and
when manure or other loads are drawn
the body is only 8 Inches h igher than the
axles. I have drawn many loadsof hay
with my rig on ground so soft that an
ordinary tire would not be supported.
The mowing machine axle is cut is
two in the middle and holes punched in
the ends, as the cut shows, and banc's
or clasps placed around the wboie
thing, next to the wheels. The eogs on
the outside of the wheels are cut off
with hammer and cold chisel, so that the
rims are smooth. I have cut them from
SO wheels without breaking a rim. The
bolsters are made the same size as
those of any wagon, so any box or rack
may set on. This wagon saves hard or
heavy lifting and is used almost entire
ly on the farm. Owing to the broad
tires one horse can draw a heavier load
than two horses with the ordinary
I also have a stone boat on four ol
the wheels which I use a great deal.
It is hnng under the axles, about 8 inchet
from the ground, and saves all heavy
lifting. V. H. Matthews, in Farm an1

few years ago visiting a friend whe
had some valuable stock, lust before
retired for the night I suggested
that we go around and take a look at
the animals, which waa my custom at
home. He laughed and said I was al
ways a queer fellow. But we went,
and found a cow down with the halter
about her neck. She was a valuable,
pare Jersey, about to calve, and waa
sold to be delivered with the calf for
81,800.' Said my friend: - "You have
given me a lesson I shall never forget
And you have saved me 81,500, and, what
is more than money, all the blame foi
