Last Tear Gown.
A style very useful for renovating
ihe bodice of a last year's gown is to
cut it in a low square front and back,
filling in this open space with some
new bright contrasting fancy silk or
satin material. To conceal the joining,
use is made of twisted ribbon, a row of
pretty jetted gimp, or a band of velvet
with rosettes and shoulder bows for
additional lining. If the sleeves are
not voluminous enough for present
fashion, large puffs may be added,
matching the silk or satin guimpe, using
the best portions of the old sleeves for
the forearm parts of the new sleeves,
or a very full ruffle of lace may be set
above the original sleeve, thus pro
ducing a distended appearance from
shoulder to shoulder. Many other de
vices are resorted to for changing
sleeves that are not wide enough, such
as pointed insertions of piece velvet or
insertion bands of gimp jet. lace or
ribbon producing a stripped effect; al
so Hungarian caps, shoulder-capes,
epaulets, and narrow puffs set in full
at the top of the sleeve and tapering
to a point at the elbow. X. Y. Post.
To Lltht the Dinner Table.
Candelabra are very pretty things If
there be any in the family, but they
are expensive to buy, and four silver
candlesticks are, on the whole, more
useful and ornamental. Xowadays
there are candles in the market war
ranted not to drip, and made not whol
ly of wax, but of some composition
which burns brilliantly and slowly.
They average eight to the pound, and
cost something like twenty-five or
thirty cents a pound. Xo light is so
satisfactory or so becoming as candle
light. When the great question of il
lumination and flowers is settled, there
remains one more opportunity for in

FARM AND GARDEN.
THE PLEBEIAN PEANUT.
It Flays a Tsefal Fart In the Economy of
Man and Beast.
The plebeian peanut, which rejoices
in such other homely names as e. rth
nut, groundnut, ground pea, go.-ber
and pindar, has assumed a newdign.ty,
having recently been honored as
the subject of a special report by
one of the experiment officers of the
national department of agriculture.
The report corrects some preval -nt
mistakes as to this little article of c n
sumption, gives astonishing statistics
as to its value as a food product, end
presents many interesting facts as to
It is pleasant to be informed, first of
all, that the peanut is not a nut at all,
but a pea, and that its shell is not a
shell, but a pod. It is also well to know
that while cotton, Indian corn, pota
toes and tobacco have usually been
considered the four plants of commer
cial importance which America has
given to the world, the peanut must
be added, as the weight of authority
fixes its birthplace in Brazil. The
crop has become of primary impor
tance since 1SCG, and Virginia. Xorth
Carolina and Tennessee produce the
largest part of it. There are seven j
varietiescultiTs. ted, some ol them bunch
and some running vines. The yield
of this underground pea is astonishing,
and the amount consumed is a testi-
. : i . ' :. T-v. .
production here is about 4.000,000
bushels of 22 pounds, which supply the
present demand in this country. This,
how:er. is but a small portion of the
world's crop. The exportation fro.n
Africa and India to Europe in 1S92 j
amounted to nearly 400.000.000 pounds.
The crop of the world may be safely
estimated at COO.000.000 pounds.
The value of the homely little ground
pea. however, becomes especially ap
parent when its uses are considered.
It is sorted in the factory into four
grades, the first, second and third be
ing sold to venders of the roasted pea
nut, either directly or through jobbing
houses. The fourth grade is sold to
confectioners, and after their manipu
lation reappears as peanut candy,
burnt almonds and in cheaper grades
of chocolates. The report says in this
connection: "The extent of the use of
the peanut by the American people
will be more fully appreciated when it
is remembered that they use 4.000.000
bushels of nuts yearly (at a cost to the
consumers of SIO.000.000), which do not
form a part of the regular articles of
food but are eaten at odd times." The
planter uses the nut as a fattener for his
hogs and the vine as peanut hay for
his stock, and the feeding value is in
creased when some of the nuts are
cured and fed with the hay. Millions
of bushels are used in the old world
for the production of oil. which is
regarded as equal to olive oil. In fact,
great quantities are used, nknown to
the consumer, instead of the latter,
Marseilles alone taking 220.000.000
pounds a, year for the makintr of al
leged olive oil. In India. Europe,
Brazil and this country the oil is used
medicinally. It is employed by manu
facturers in fulling cloth. It makes a
good lighting fluid, and is largely
used by the manufacturers of soap
and as a lubricant in machine J
shops. The oil cake is used in Germany
for fattening cattle and sheep. It is
pronounced an excellent cattle food.
A grade known as "peanut meal" is
made by grinding the hulls, immature
peanuts, and those of inferior grades
and a certain quantity of sound nuts
mixed with other ingredients. The
residue, known as "peanut cake."
makes good soup, griddle cakes, muf
fins, etc., and is one of the most nutri
tive foods for human as well as animal
consumption. The report says: "Al
though the experiment made with pea
nut meal and biscuits as food for the
Herman army was not so successful as
(o induce the authorities to adopt it as
a part of the rations, still analysis has
shown conclusively that it is a most
nourishing food for man. and as com
pared with other well-known forms of
vegetable and animal food it has a
high nutritive value." From all of
which it appears that this little nut or
pea. which hitherto has been looked
down upon as the stock in trade of the
street corner vender, the food of the
gallery god. and the luxury of the cir
cus, has other and higher uses and is I
one of the important staples of com
merce and plavs a dignified and useful
part in the economy of man and beast.
Penneylvanian's Easy Way of Drawing
Wire fences are frequently difficult to
tighten. Edwin G. Walker, of Butler
county, Fa., sends the plan below,
WIRES DRAWS TAUT.
which he uses successfully. Set a post
a, in the fence line of any desired
length and stretch as many strands
of wire as wanted. Unreel the strands
to within a foot of the post and fasten
securely to a 2x4 scantling (b). Two
long bolts, c, c, of 23i feet or there
abouts, with long threads and burrs,
are placed through the center of the
post. The scantling may be kept in
place by resting on blocks. After the
strands are securely fastened to the I
scantlings, with a wrench twist the '
bolt and draw the wires tight. Two
sections may thus be tightened at the
same time, bnt numerous sections can
not be tightened as readily, as the
strain is taken up along the line and
the tension equally distributed unless
tightened sections are held and then
nailed. Farm and Home.
STANCHIONS FOR COWS.
lUaltlnc Dairy Animals Comfortable and
Keeplne Them Clean.
Clean cows and comfortable cotrs
the two factors go together in making
the dairy business profitable. I have
worked hard to keep cows clean in
their stalls, but could never succeed
until I had them hitched on a plat
form at least eight inches above the
bottom of the gutter, and arranged so
that their hind feet would come just at
the rear edge of the platform. Then
no manure falls upon the platform and
the cow is always dry and clean.
It requires some skill, however, to so
arrange the cows as to stanchions, or
ties, that they will stand naturally,
and for most of the time, with their
hind feet just at the rear edtre of the
j platfprm. The upright stanchions will
accomplish this, and where they are
made to swing from side to side they
allow considerable freedom of move-
tnent to the cows, but at the best the
are not wholly comfortable, and to do
her best a dairr cow must at all times
be comfortable. There is another plan
which is shown in the accompanying
illustration. The cows are hitched
with chains that slide up and down
upon a rod, two cows in each wide
stall, or one in a narrow stall as
preferred. There is a solid partition
between the stalls and the cribs.
a hin;red door admitting the head
of each cow to her crib at feeding
time. W hen the ration has been eaten
the doors are closed and buttoned.
which forces the cows to stand back
until their hind feet come to the edge
of the gutter, and to lie down also in
that situation. When the doors are
closed any manure that has fallen
upon the platform while the cows
have been standing ahead feeding is
scraped into the gutter, and the cows
left until the next feeding.
Where the manure cellar is under
the cattle it will be found most con
venient to have the manure traps in
the raised walk, as shown, rather than
in the bottom of the gutter, where
they are buried beneath the manure
and filthy to handle. Handy shelves
that are hinged and folded against the
wall when not in use are shown at the
rear of the raised walk. The doors
admitting the cows' heads to the cribs
in front will be found exceedingly
convenient when feeding grain, roots
or ensilage. One can then put the
ration in the crib without molestation
from the horns or nose of the animal,
eager to get at its breakfast or dinner.
The door can then be unbuttoned and
allowed to swing in against the side
of the crib, when the cow can come
forward and eat. 'lhe crib can be
made to fold down against the outside
of the partition if more room is desired
at any time in the feeding floor.
