the Senatorial Horse Raiser
Talks of His Wonderful
Palo Alto and Sunol Have Not
Yet Reached Their
Peerless Arion— The Horse
man's Hope for Speed in
How the Runners Lined Up in
Contests on a Cold
Thanksgiving 1 .
Sax Fi:an< i>. o. Nov. 26.— Toe Even
ing Post this afternoon prints an inter
view with Senator Stanford on the sub
ject of the recent performances of his
trotting horses on the Stockton '•kite
shaped" truck. Stanford taid: "Ilacing
is over as far as Palo Alto horses are
concerned, for all the trotters have l>-en
retired for the year. Sunol prob
ably will be sent East in
a few days. I am confident
Palo Alto, thoroughly conditioned
and tree from lameness, can make a
belter record than he did when he
trotted in :2:u- : . 11 is season in the stud
did not end until the middle, of July,
and as a consequence he was not thor
oughly prepared. Sunol was also lame,
and was laid up two months in the midd
le of the season. I don't think she
•was in as good condition as she might
have been, and I am Brmiv of the
opinion that when at. her best siie can
trot a mile m g:OG or better.
'I'ijo Great Arion.
'•Arion eclipsed the expectation of
all. I had great hopes of him, but did
not look for Uiin to be the hero of so
wonderful a performance as 2:10% as a
two-year-old. He is an exceptionally
well balanced horse and strong every
where although 1 do think, barring' ac
cidents, that he will nearer approach
that mark than any horse yet foaled.
"I do not pretend." said Senator Stan
ford, in conclusion, "to put a limit to
the degree of improvement in horses,
because we may constantly look for the
best strains and qualities of each parent
to develop in the progeny, so that the
progeny will continue to be better than
either parent. The greatest improve
ment is to come throush the breeding
of the brood mares. 1 ant tryinjc to in
crease the number at Palo Alto by
judicious mingling of thoroughbred
with hieli class trotters."
MARVIN GOING EAST.
He Will Train at Prospect Hill
Pitt?buro, Nov. 2o.— Upon ascertain
ing definitely that Charles Marvin
wanted to I^ave Palo Alto farm to en
gage in business for himself, Messrs.
Miller and bibicy entered into negotia
tions with him. and it is today
stated upon good authority that
the noted trainer will in . the near
future be at the head of the great Pros
pect Hill farm, which owns more of the
blood of the lamed Electioner than is
owned anywhere else except at Palo
Alto. It is also definitely stated that, j
Milier and Sibley have "secured the
Meadville kite track, one of the best
training tracks in the world. The opin
ion is also expressed that the future
development of Mr. Bonner's world

His Battle With siuvin Will Be tho
Ijiist, Win ay Lose
Sa.v I-':: am i>( Nov. Three
thousand people attended Paddy Ryan's
benefit at the Pacific Athletic club last
night. The benefit was arranged for
Ryan by John L. Sullivan and a
number of San Francisco sporting men,
and consisted of boxing, fencing and
club swinging. The chief event was a
lively throe-round go between Sullivan
and Ryan, which closed the exhibition.
Sullivan appeared very fleshy, weigh
ing iii the neighborhood of 250 pounds.
He stated from the stair that in order
to quiet news paper talk, he would an
nounce his ultimatum as to the. match
Between Slavin and himself. His
money was posted in New York to bind
such a match, lo lake place the latter
pert of September, or the first part of
October, iv.i.'. "Slftvin is the first man
I ever challenged." said Sullivan,, and,
win or lose, it will be my last fight.
Now 1 ant sick of discussing this mat
ter, and wish to hear no more about it."
Dannie Needham and George Dawsou,
ex-champion of Australia, have been
matched to fight in the California club

THOMPSON IS BALKED.
The Dtiko of Gloucerter Cannot
Washington, Nov. 26.— President
Thompson, of the Gloucester, N. .J., race
track, will not secure the Benumbs
track for winter racing, as was an
nounced yesterday. Mr. Thompson had
secured the consent of several members
for the lease of the track for four
months for £12,000, but this action had
to be ratified by the executive commit
tee of the Washington Jockey club.
L,ast iiiebt the matter was referred to
the executive committee and they
promptly rejected their proposition.
The committee :i!so adopted a resolution
expressing disapprqvnlbf winter racing.
The Gloucester people were very much
chagrined at this decision, but claim
that they can secure another track as
good as that r.t Beunmes.

Winter Curling in St. Paul Form
The challenge issued last week by
William Rodgers to play on Thanks
giving day any rink the St. Paul Curl
in? club could produce was accepted by
the llinkle rink, and a large crowd of
enthusiasts were present to witness the
match. Skip Rodders presented J. J.
Ahem, Will Myron, James Myron and
William Rodgers. The liiukles en
tered 1). HcCutcheon, Hush Campbell,
Allan Black and J. G. llinkle. Rodgers
won the toss and the great game com
menced with a beautifully laid stone by
the Rodger lead, and to the finish they
were never headed— score, 17 to 5. At
the conclusion of the match the con
testants were banqueted by George F.
Hall, who provided an elegant spread,
and the formal opening of the curling
season ended with a grand feast of eat,
drink, song and story.
Wrestling at »Vm>na.
This evening the great battle between
Charles Moth, champion (Jra^co-Itoman,
! and Smith Mcllugh. cnatnpion catch-as
catch-can wrestler, comes off in Winona.
The style is catch-as-catch-can. three
! falls, three points down, for £500. Be
i cause of the fact that Mciiuxh makes
this style a specialty, and Moth doss
not, Mac has the confidence of tin
talent, and all the Moth money finds
plenty of takers. It will be the great
est sporting event in the history of Wi
iioua. ami every body there is En a state
of excitement, and a large amount of
money will hinge upon the outcome.
Quite a number of the Twin City sports
will be there with their rolls, but it is
uncertain which man they will back,
although Mcllugh seems to have the
; confidence of the majority.
Potatoes in Thirty-2-.ijjht Days.
A correspondent of the Farm an
Fireside thus states how he secured po
tatoes in thirty-eight days: "In Decem
ber. 1574, 1 bought a lot in this cijy 50x
150 feet. The soil had been cropped
until it was quite poor. Late the next
spring 1 had twenty-five cartloads of
manure put upon it, and a3 much
more in the fall, and then had it
forked in with a spading fork. The
soil was loosened and intermixed with
manure to the depth of twenty inches.
The next spring (1875) I procured Early
i ];;»!■ potatoes and cut them to single
i eyes and put them close together in
a shallow box of sand. As soon as
the sprouts were two inches in
| height i transplanted them in
: the open ground. This was done in the
; dark of the moon. The rows were two
I feet apart, and three pieces were set in
; a triangular form nine, inches apart,
averaging about three feet apart in the
row. The furrows were made
three inches in depth. Two parts
of bog soil ami cue part of sand
were mixed and an inch in depth
was put in the bottom. Thcpotatoeyes
were set on this and enough of the same
kind of soil was used to cover the top to
the depth of one inch. 1 then mixed
twenty pounds of salt with one bushel of
fresh hickory ashes, and nut a double
handful on over each hill. I then put on
garden soil to the depth of two inches.
The planting was completed Thursday,
I and the tops appeared above the ground
li:;: following Monday morning. No fur
ther cultivation was required. In just
thirty-eight days the potatoes were the
size of a hen's egg, and we continued to
use them daily. The yield was simply
wonderful. So much for following, as
near as I could, Wiley's essay ou the
cultivation of potatoes.
It is stated that the shipments of pork
product, including pork, bacon, hams
and lard, from the United Stales for the
year of 1890 were 1.331,000,000
pounds. The total consumption of
pork product, exclusive of lard,
in the United States dur
ing 1890 is estimated at 8,653,000,000
pounds, which would make an average
annual consumption per capita ol over
58 pounds. The domestic consumption
of lard is about 540,000,000 pounds, or
about 8.0 per capita.
Kill the Dogs.
The first step to take in preventing
the killing of sheep by worthless dogs
is to kill the dogs. If this cannot be
done to an extent that will make secur
ity certain, it is a good plan to bell the
sheep. The bells are cheap, an<l there
should be a number on each flock. The
noise made will sometimes frighten the
dogs away, and will often attract the
attention of the shepherd or owner so
"iat they can get to them in. time to pre

Bride of a Day Elopes-Mar
riage to a Divorced Hus
DETROIT, Mich., Nov. 20.— The fash
ionable First Presbyterian church on
\Voodward avenue is already prepared
for a fashionable wedding that will
never take place. Tomorrow .it 10 a. m.
was the time lixed for the great event.
Fashionable society was greatly inter
ested, and declared it very romantic that
Clarence 11. Could, son of the richest
wholesale grocer in the city, should es
poaseagirl who had only beauty, charm
ing manners, a delightful voice and a
few acres of Canadian soil to reccom
incnd her. Fashionable society would
attend this wedding. Gould Senior had
purchased an elegantly furnished and
line residence, 7:31) Cass avenue for the
young coupJe. The prospective bride
had purchased a $1,<300 trousseau in De
troit, for the payment of which young
(iould had given security. lie is twen
ty-five years old. manly and of a some
what serious turn of miud.
His expectations from thft worldly
standpoint are great, out his income at
present la limited to the salary which he
receives in his father's wholesale store.
The young lady is, or was, Miss Edna
Percy, of Napanee, Out., a small place
about 100 miles from Toronto. Her
parents died a year ago, leaving her an
undivided one-third interest in a small
farm, on which she realized no
cash. Her friends supplied her
with money, and she came to De
troit to study in Mahan's school of
music. In Napanee there lived a drug
gist's clerk named Edward Fullerton,
whom Miss Percy loved and had prom
ised to marry. It is not known whether
this engagement was broken by her or
not. but it was a secret from her sister
and brother in Napanee. In Detroit
her voice, beauty and manners made an
impression at once. A prettier blonde
never came to Detroit and saw
and conquered. Quite an ex
clusive set, to which Clarence Gould be
longs, took her up, and the country girl
was equal to every occasion. Her suc
cess way be partly accounted for by the
fact that for a time tho way slit: spent
money led to the impression that she
was an heiress. She boarded at 196
Pail street, aim lived in lind style.
Life in Detroit made her ambitious
ami she accepted Clarence 11. Gould's
proposal ni marriage, as she explained
1:1 Napanee. '"For his money."' Her
heart remained with the dispenser of
drugs at $8 per week in her native vil
lage. As the betrothed of Gould life was
not a halcyon dream, for the lover once
was bold enough to reprove her fur her
extravagant use of money. There was
a quarrel. It was patched up, however.
No one was more enthusiastic over the
proposed match than Gould Si-., who
even yet thinks tenderly of her. The
cards were issued and nearly all the
preparations made for the wedding, the
lady took part of her trousseau and
went to her sister. Mrs. Dr. Cowie, of
Napanee. That was a week ago.
She and a naif dozen friends and rel
atives wen: expected to arrive in De
troit last evening. Mr. Gould had en
gaged rooms for them at the Hotel
Uadtilae. Indeed, Miss Percy's friends
had purchased railroad tickets to De
troit, and had no warning of the flckel
young lady's intentions to elope. The
party n t arriving, Mr. Gould tele
graphed to Napanee. Dr.Oowie replied:
••Eiiia gone away; don't know where. 71
xouug Gould, of a deep and sensitive
nature, has taken the blow very much
10 heart. Until he was acquainted
with the whole truth he sustained
Ins spirits a little by keeping the te!e-
KTOrti wires hot. This morning, how
ever, he was completely crushed by tho
news that Edna had runaway to Toronto
with Edward Fullertoa and was already
his wife, it is suspected that she had
been under promise all the time lo
marry him. and had not the heart to
break the engagement. She returned
to Napanee this afternoon as Mrs. Ful
lerton, and although her friends are
much chagrined they admire the girl
that will for love's sake aiarrv a poor
drug clerk when she might have become
the wife of a prospectively wealthy man.
CAPTUKKI) A COUNTESS.
One of the Spanish Variety Mar
ries in Georgia.
Atlanta. Ga., November 2C— A
secret marriage performed yesterday has
come to light Yesterday afternoon at
3 o'clock a carriage drove up to St.
Philip's Episcopal church, containing
four occupants, two ladies and two
gentlemen. A side door was quickly
opened, the four persons passed in and
the door was closed. The great church
was empty.save the presence of a white
robed figure with prayer book in hand,
who evidently knew el the coming of
the visitors and awaited them. He was
the rector of St. Phillip's church. One
of the ladies and one of the gentlemen
took a seat in the front pew. The
other couple advanced to the altar
railing. The lady was neatly attired
and her face was of a rare type of
beauty. She was not young, yet
time had left no traces to mar the lovely
face. The gentleman was probably
forty years of age. The groom was ilou.
Frederick Townsend, an Englishman.
The bride, the Countess Zadie de Barn
well Arostitrni. Countess de Barnwell
Arostigni arrived in Atian a i few weeks
ago and engaged rooms at the Kimball
house. The lion. Frederick Townsend
had met the countess before she came
to Atlanta, and his Jove for
her prompted him to follow
lier to this city. He lenewed his suit,
and she consented to marry, provided
the weddini: could be arranged without
publicity. The countess, while stop
ping at the Kimball, had become ac
quainted with a prominent society lady,
and she with a friend of Mr. Townsend
accompanied the couple to the church
and were the only witnesses to the cere
■When Mr. Tupper, the rector of St.
Philip's, pronounced the countess and
the Englishman husband and wife the
groom drew .520 from his pocket and
gave it to the minister, remarking, "We
will take a short bridal tour, and wnen
we return to Atlanta we will attend
your church. On Sunday last Mr.
Townsend, who is an Episcopalian, at
teued St. Philip's church, and it was
then that he made the arrangements
for his marriage with the coun
tess. Theie is a story connected
with the countess' first marriage.
Although there came title and wealth,
her life with the Count de Barnwell
Arostigni was not happy. It was a
brilliant weddine, that which occurred
in New Orleans some years ago, and
united this woman. Countess in her own
right, to the Count Barnwell Arostigni.
The count was a Spaniard of wealth and
distinction, and a man of many per
sonal attractions. The bride was also
Spanish, with a bearing at once impres
sive and elegant. The denouement was
quite sensational. From what has
been learned it is supposed that M. le
Comte, having fallen in love with an
other woman, caused Mine, le Comte to
be incarcerated in an insane asylum,
where she was kept for years. After a
divorce had been obtained madamc wa3
released, since when she has traveled
Irom place to place, mostly Incognito.
The count died a few years ago. The
Countess de Barnwelf Arostigni is ex
tremely wealthy. She is said to have a
collection of jewels such as is rarely
seen in this country, Dear-shaped pearls
and precious stones of thu rarest and
most expensive character.
BRIDi: OF A DAY,
But That Fact Didn't Deter Her
From Kloii nr.
Maktinsvii.i.!-, Ind., Nov. 2G.— The
little town of Oilon, several tuiles w • t
Of tliis city, has been treated to a loal
live sensation, owing to the unaccount
able actions of a couple of her young
people. Bert Lowiy decamped last
night with Mrs, Annie Ingails, a bride
of but twenty-four hours. On Sun
day afternoon a party of people of
(Moil, among whom were Misses Annie
Harman and Ella Borders, drove to
Washington, where the two young
ladies were married to Adam Ingalls, a
railway employe, and Mr. Arthur, both
of Washington. The wedding was a
very pleasant affair, and was attended
by many friends on either side. After
the ceremony and usual con
gratulations the party returned
to Odon, where matters moved
along smoothly until last night.
Mrs. Arthur's parents tendered a recep
tion to a large concourse of relatives
and friends on behalf of the newly
married couple. A few minutes before
the euests w»re ushered into the dining
room liert Lowry. a highly respected
young man of Odon. and a former
sweetheart of Annie's, was noticed to
have a hurried conversation with her.
When the* enjoyment of the
feast was at its highest. Mrs.
lngalls suddcMily arose, excusing
herself, and saying she would return in
a minute, telling: her husband that she
had turned a little sick, but that he
need not attend her. The moments
flew rapidly by, when it dawned upon
the groom that he had better look after
his wife's welfare. He left the room
and went in search of her. Kn
t urn ing he secured the services
of others In the search, but
to no purpose. Finally, all pres
ent began running wildly about inquir
ing and searching tor her. many sup
posing she had become dazed nud wan
dered awny in the dark. It finally be
came known to tlie groom and relatives
that Lowry had procured the services of
a rig at Herbert's livery stable, and had
it in readiness at the door. When Mrs.
lngalls left the dining room she
hastily secured her wraps and
jumped into the vehicle, when
they wore driven away in the dark
uess. Mr.s. Ingalls had with her all her
husband's ready money, and many citi
zens are ont various sums because of
the amounts loaned by them to Lowry.
Ingalls, assisted by tlie woman's broth
er-in-law, William Necreimer, and
many volunteers, continued the chase,
said to be urged by the bride's futher to
bung them back dead or alive, but to
no purpose up to 4 o'clock this after
naon. All concerned stand high in the
community, and the actions of Mrs.
Ingalls are utterly unaccountable.

Australian Sale of Rams. IH ' :
Annual sales of Merino rams are held
in Australia, and the result of that
eveut of recent date shows a lower
range of prices than 111 any year since
1882, except those of lSSJandfsS'J, when
they were still a trifle lower. An ex
change gives these particulars:
The prices realized last year for 3,034
head averaged $33.25 per head, while
this year the number sold increased to
4,356. and the prices fell 10 $39.25 per
head. However, a few special animals
brought extra fine prices. For instances,
one ram was sold tor about ?2,500, aud
the top price of sale was about
$3,550. which are the highest fig
ures recorded in recent years at that
point. Dunug the nine years ending
with 191, 22,606 sheep have been sold
in these states, making an average for
the entire number of $57.75 per head.
All things considered, the sheep sales at
Sidney must be regarded as a great suc
cess. <*n:t nothing like it, number and
circumstances considered, has ever been
kuowu where in the world."
HEART OF ALGERIA,

Forests of 01ive3 and Thick

m the Eye.
A Superb Hot-Water Fall
Which Gives Forth Abun
dance of Steam.
History of the Springs and
Stories Told in Connection
Hamraßn Meskoutine. or the "Baths
of the Cursed," is a lovely little resort
in the heart of Algiers, within easy
reach of Algieis, Bone or Constantine,
says Chambers' Journal. It is
er too far from Algiers to be got at in a
single day. But, by traveling all day to
Constantine and sleeping there, one
may then take the 5 o'clock train in the
morning, which reaches Mc-skoutine at
Forests of olives and thickets of scrub
gladden the eyes and tell of the game
which is here plentiful enough to make
Meskoutine worth visiting for the gun's
And so. Having passed through two or
three defiles, we finally drew up in a
more open country, with hills in the dis
tance on all sides, and with green mead
ows and dark woods far and near over
It is preciously hot; but then no won
der, for the very streams in the gullies
are of warm water; and if you are near
one or other of the many springs which
here burst from the ground, they may
be warm enough to scald you.
The writer, when he left the train at
Meskoutine on a tine May morning, did
so In company with two or three rich
Arabs in gay apparel and a family of
•lews and Jewesses with enough cold
about their persons to keep thenf for
years. These were some of the clients
of the baths of the cursed.
By and by we saw one of the ladies in
one of the baths, draped in a sheet, and
there was a look of pain in har eyes.
Ileru at the station, however, though it
is a fashionable resort for Europeans, as
well as Africans, was none of tha tu
mult of welcome with which porters
and domestics assail the visitors at
other "bath" cities.
Two or three tawny individuals
lounged against thejpalings of the little
flower garden of the station, but ottered
no aid to any one. Jews, Arabs and
Europeans were left to look after them
selves as best they could.
It is a walk of but three or four min
utes to the bath establishment and some
of the various wonders of Meskoutine.
Wonders? you ask, Why, yes; there's
no doubt the word is applicable hwe.
For, ere you have walked a quarter of
a mile, you come face to face with a
superb waterfall, hot-water fall, which
makes you hold your breath from ad
miration and the plenitude of its steam.
Yet it is not all of water. For the most
part it is rigid, iike a thing of ice. It ia,
in tact, mainly a petrification.
The calcareous deposit in the hot
springs above iias incrusted the rocks
so that they have the corrugated appear
ance and something of the color of" bar
ley sugar. Here and there, over and
between the still masses, there is an
ooze or trickle of warm water, adding
to the work already done.
Grass and Mowers crow well by the
sides of this nutritious waterfall;
though the whitened soil in the neigh
borhood does not seem adapted for veg
etation of any kind. ,
You climb to the level of the top of
the cascade, an I then see, clo3e by. a
number of i;dd-looking cones and col
umns Htaaoing up from the blanched
surface of the ground. The soil is hot
to the hand, and you tread with an echo.
The springs either were or still are
under foot, making for the vents by the
cascade. There they bubble up merrily
with ■ temperature of moid than 200
A litter of eggshells and fowls' featii
ers by the edga of them tells of the pur
pose they serve to the residents of Mes
koutine. What is the use oi lighting
domestic tires when nature offers her
kitchen for tinman service night or day
all t!n> year round?
And so here the dinner is cooked and
clothes are washed in one or the other
of the little basins by which the springs
eddy up to [he daylight. Though the
Arabs give the baths so impolite a
name, and tell various weird tales about
them, they love them well.
You see two or three of them,
wrapped in their burnouses, lying all
white save their faces, uear the foot of
the cascade, fast asleep in the shade.
But the cones? Weli. to borrow the
figurative explanation of a French au
thority, they luok like a procession of
gigantic phantoms suddenly petrified.
Some are six or seven feet in height,
and some are fourteen or fifteen feet.
They mark the site of ancient springs
now subsided. At one time each of
these cones was but the mere rim or lip
of a basin in which the hot water bub
bled as we see it at the top of the cas
Thus the water continued to boil up
ward In jets, like the geysers, for cen
turies, gradually— by the deposit of
lime which fell from it— raising the
height of its lip. Anon the subter
ranean force which impelled it verti
The cone had attained its full stature.
The springs one by one found other
exits, and the cones themselves closed
their orifices. Such is the matter-of
fact history of these eccentric rock
The Arabs, however, have their own
theory about the things. King Solo
mon,they say, here created baths for all
the world, and put them in charge of a
number of genii who were deaf, dumb
The cones arc these genii. And the
worthy guardians, who still think that
King Solomon is alive, continue to keep
the baths warm, as they did at first, for
the use of the king's subjects.
It is supposed to be a matter of great
difficulty to announce to these afflicted
genii the fact that their master is dead.
The fact !s, therefore, that ihey will
continue to warm the baths until the
end of time.
There is also another tale which is
less pleasant. A certain rich Arab had
two children, a boy and a girl, both ot
remarkable beauty. These children
loved each other "with exceeding af
When they grew up their love re
mained unchanged— indeed, increased
until it became uncontrollable— and so
they resolved to marry each other. The
cadi of the tribe, after protest, agreed
to sanction the marriage— they were so
rich and so lovely a couple that it
seemed to him and his neighbors that
even heaven itself would forgive such a
crime in their case.
The mnrriage day arrived. The con
course of visitors was immense. It was
ilk BfjP HE^B' I fc"-_^s '^-^S
Used In Millions of Homes — 40 Years tie Standard,
a calm, brteht. morning, and all the
auzurics were hopeful.
The preliminaries of the marriage
were soon settled, and then feasting
ana dancing began. The married cou
ple were about to withdraw to their
tent, when suddenly a fearful tempest
broke upen them; there was an earth
quake, flames shot up in their midst,
and boilinz water rose into the air.
When at length this diabolical storm
and outbreak abated nothing was left of
the bride and bridegroom, the cadi and
the guests, except these scores of cones.
Like Lot's wife, they had all been
transformed into stationary pillars
from that time forward.
The Arab imagination goes farther.
It interprets the echo of your footfalls
upon the hollow ground as an echo of
the music of the marriage festival. The
steam of the springs is that from the
caldrons preparing the feast, and the
white stones in the bubbling basis are
the erains of the "kouskous" itself.
If you go among the cones at night
the scene revives— you see all the de
tails of that awful marriage. But at the
coming of dawn the men and women all
turn again into cones.
There is no luxury in the Bath hotel
of Meskoutine. That is against the
principles of the place, which claim to
be health-restoring— not through the
medium of the kitchen, but by its air
and its waters.
You are informed that the "cuisine"
is of the "bourgeois" type, and so it is.
But the wine is good, and one may be
sure of fruit here as early as in most
places of the same latitude.
The hotel is a spacious building, oc
cupying three sides of a square, the
quadrangle in the midst being laid out
in pleasant gardens and planted with
orange trees, which in spring are massed
with the sweetest bloom in the world.
There is, further, a fountain in the
center of the quadrangle and an aviary,
in which canaries and parrots, as well
as divers of our English summer birds,
live together on fair terms of equality.
As the building is of but a single
story, bedrooms, as well as the living
rooms, open immediately upon the gar
den plot. It is a primitive place in
which one is content for a time to dis
pense even with some of the conveni
Breakfast and dinner are of course
the two chief events of the day for the
person who is not out among the woods
and mountains with his gun. At the
dinner table, however, the company
may be very good.
Meskoutine has long been used by tbe
military authorities as a station for in
valids and convalescents. One may,
therefore, find one's self among agree
able aud distinguished officers who are
here to recruit.
But the idle line suits them for long
as little as it suits a healthy Enelish
man, and one may be sure tliat they,
too, will devote their hours to the chase
just as soon as the doctor will let them.
Once upon a time, and not so very
lonir ago, it was possible to shoot a lion
in the neighborhood of Meskoutiue.

Grant Monument Association
Loses Its Leading Spirit.
New Yoi:k, Nov. 26.— The friction
which has existed in the Grant Monu
ment association for some time culmi
nated in the sudden resignation of ex-
Mayor Grace as president and his with
drawal from all connection with the
association. This step was taken by
Grace on Nov. 14, and it has been a
well-kept secret up to this time. The
immediate reason for ex-Mayor Grace's
resignation is the action of the execu
tive committee, of which Gen. Collis is
chairman and Mr. Grace ex-offieio the
head as president.
In the latter part of October business
took Mr. Grace to Washington. He was
aware that an important meeting of the
executive committee would be held dur
ing his absence, and on inquiry he
learned, to his surprise, that, it was pro
posed to elect by bis committee certain
new members of the association. He
protested against it by letter, but dur
ing his absence the committee, in spite
of his protests, acted as it proposed to
do. Tin: affair has caused a great deal
of surprise, as Mr. Grace is the man
whose official action when mayor cre
ated what has become the Grant Monu
ment association, and who has oeen
ever since very prominently' identiliud
Large and Small Farms.
The relative profit of large and small
farms Is an open subject, and will con
tinfte to have the usual division of opin
ion, because the area in acres has not so
much to do with success as the capacity
of the individual tanner to man
age, and for a mau to prop
erly gauge his ability to suc
cessfully handle lands will result like
most estimates of self-judging. There
may be instances of great success on
both large and small farms in the same
neighborhood, and likewise instances of
failure on both large and small farms,
leaving it clearly apparent that some
persona are capable of handling to ad
vantage larger possessions than others.
The popular idea seems to be that a
small farm, well tilled, is more produc
tive in proportion to the capital invested
than ti;e large farm, and tliis certainly
has some strong erounds for the posi
tion taken. There are many theories
pertainine to agriculture that look as
though they would be practical, but
when plnced in actual test disappoint
our expectations. Study your ability to
mana^ejand add to your landed posses
sions as yon increase in knowledge.
Improvement in Stock.
In no place is the improvement in live
stock that has taken place in the last
twenty years shown more clearly thau
by comparing the old-time Texas steer
with the present range cattle, and we
are glad to say that progress in this Hue
is now making more "rapidly than at
any time heretofore. We ;ue but
just beginning upon an era of im
proved practices in every branch of ag
riculture — in breeding aud feeding
stock and in growing crops. No sensi
ble man doubts today that there is as
much room for development here as
there has been in science and applied
mechanics. The progressive young
farmer must be a student and keep
abreast of new knowledge regarding his
work. Clinging to old practices will
prove continually more unproti table.
