THE COUNTY PAPER,

S Dcnot dread n altered heart,
Or that long lino of land or sea
Should separate my love from mc,
I dread that drifting slow apart
All unresisted, unrestrained
Which comes to some when the;
The dear endeavor ot their eoxl.
As two light skills that sailed together,
"Through days and nights of tranqHll weather,
Adown some Inland stream, might be
Drifted asunder, each from each;

The hoped-for end, the promised goal,
Tho sudden glory of the sea.
FAKM, IHHDEN AND HOUSEHOLD.
A London authority gives tho follow
ing modo of pioceduro in layering
roses: About tho mlddlo of July, in
most seasons, tho shoots will bo found
about eighteen lnchos or two feet in
lougth; from those, two-thirds of their
length, tho loaves should bo cut off
loso to tho shoot, beginning at tho
baso, with a very sharp knifo; tho shoot
must then bo brought to tho ground, so
as to bo ablo to judgo in what placo tho
hole must bo mado to recolvo it. This
may bo mado largo onough to hold a
quarter of a peck of compost; in heavy
and retentlvo soils this should bo rotton
dune and pit sand in equal quantities
-well mixed. Tho shoot must thon bo
"toneucd": i. o., thoknlfn introduced
just below a bud and brought upwards,
so as to cut about halt way througii
This must bo dono at tho sldo or back
of tho shoot (not by any moans at
-thn front or in tho bend), so
that tho tonguo does not closo
To mako this certain a small pleco of
glass or thlnoarthcnwaro may bo intto-
-dnced to keep It open. Much nicoty is
Tcqulrod to havo tho tonguo at tho up
per part of tho shoot, so as not to bo in
tho part which forms tho bow, as it is
of consequenco that It should bo within
two inches of tho surfaco, so as to fool
tho effects of tho atmospheric heat; uu
less this is attonded to tho roots will not
bo omitted quickly. Tho tonguod pari
must bo placed in tho center of tho
compost, and a modorato-sizod stono
put on thosurfacool thoground tokcop
tho laver In its place. Tho first wcok
In November tho layers must bo taken
from tho parent root, and cither potted
as required or planted out whero thoy
arc to remain. Thoso shoots not long
enough in July and August, may bo
layered in October, when tho layers aro
taken from tho stools; and If any aro
forgotten, February and Maroh will bo
tho most favorablo months for tho op
eration. As a goneral rulo July is tho
most proper season.

iiipruTluK tlio IrlU l'olato.
A solect committeo of scientific agri
culturists, under tho appointment of
Parliament, charged with tho duty ol
investigating that valuable esculent, tho
potato, havo mado their report. The
London Times says: Tho report con
sists of forty-two paragraphs. It be
gins by stating that tho ovldenco of tho
scientific witnesses had clearly estab
lished tho nature of tho potato disease,
which, according to them, consists in
tho growth of tho fungus on or in tho
plant. Tho diseaso spread during thu
summer by means of spores in seeds, a
slnglo fungus producing millions ol
spores. Tho almost Inconcolvnblo fo
cundity of tho spores accounts for thu
rapid spread ol tho dtsoaso during sum
mer. Tho scientific witnesses concurred
in boliovlng that burning tho stalks ami
gotllng rid of tho diseased potatoes
would bo useful. Tho necessity for tho
production of now varieties was con
curred in by all tho witnesses. The
growers agreed that within their expe
rience many varieties of potatoes had
disappeared, having becomo utterly
worn out. Four to six years aro ro
quired to establish a varioty, and then it
steadily improved in flavor by cultiva
tion; but then, after a certain time, any
comparative Immunity from diseaso dis
appears. With good cultivation, a now
varioty would notdegonerato for twenty
yoars. Tho Champion potato was rc-
markablo for its diseaso resisting pow
ors, but it must bo expected to succumb
in Its turn. In tho closing paragraphs
of tho roport tho committeo mako vari
ous suggestions, as already given In tho
Times. Alter stating all tho facts
gleaned in tho inquiry, tho roport goes
"Under thoso circumstances, it would
appear that tho soaich for now varioties
must bo undertaken oithor by tho com
bined cnlorpriso of tho larger potato
growers, working through such socie
ties as the royal agricultural socloties
of England and Ireland and tho High
land society, or by tho government.
As up to tho present llttlo has been af
fected by thn former plan, it would seem
to bo timo for tho govornmont to lend
assistance Your committeo aro of
opinion that experimental farms for tho
creation and establishment of now va
rieties of tho potato Bhould bo estab
lished In England, Scotland and Ire
land. Whethor tlicsu farms should bo
placed under direct govornmont control
is a point which might with ndvantago
bo dotormlncd differently in tho diner
out countries. In Ireland thu bjst plan
would probably bo to extend tho exist
ing farms ol the agricultural depart
ment of tho national board, nnd to spe
cifically direct tho attention of tho su
perintendent of theso farms to re
searches on tho potato diseaso, and to
tho creation, selection and establish
ment of now varieties of tho potato.
In England and Scotland it might bo
advisable to consult with tho leading
agricultural sociotles as to whother .
subsidized they would undertako tho
necessary work, subject to government
inspection and control. Should these
societies decline tho task, your commit
teo nro distinctly of opinion (hat tho
government should appoint in onoh
county a superintendent who should'
conduct tho necessary experiments and
who should endeavor to furnish now and
successive disease-resisting varieties of
potatoes. Whether n pormauont farm
or farms should bo selected lor tho cul
tivation of tho now varieties ol tho po
tato, whether arrangements should bo
entered Into with farmers and privato
producors of now varioties, and as to
whothor laud should bo temporarily
hired for tho various purposes In tho dlf -
ferent parts of tho kingdom, nro points
of dotuil which might safely bo left to
tho superintendent to determino."
Tlic Cure of Clothing-.
Concerning tho fashion of clothing
nnd tto various fabrlos of whlsh it is
mado, information is full and frequent.
Very llttlo, howovor, is said about tho
caro of clothing, and tho ways in whioh
It may bo preserved for tho longost
tlmo and In (ho best possible condition.
To thoso who chango their garments
with ovory chango of stylo this is a mat
ter of slight importance, but to thoso
who purcbaso a silk dress or a broad
oloth suit only onco in a sorios of years
it Is a matter of intorost and valuo.
Silks, cashmeres, cloth i of standard
stylo and quality, aro vory llttlo affoctod
by tho various ourronU of fashion.
Thoy hold tholr own through all tho
years, and aro always good, always
"ityllsh," always suitable. When now
fabrics aro for tho hour of their popu
larity high-priced, theso standard goods
soli at tho standard price, and know
llttlo of riso or fall in standard valuo.
Neglect nnd carelessness doterlorato
clothing n great deal fastor than steady
wear docs. Tho housekeeper who,
instead of changing her nlco dress
when sho passes from tho street or tho
church to her kitchen, keeps it on and
takes it with her through tho various
processes of dlsh-wushlng, swcoplng
nnd cooking will soon rob it of nil its
nicety, whllo sho who wears her One
clothes only In plaocs whero fine clothes
aro sultablo may keep them in good con
dition for nn Indefinite time. To dress
nccordlng to ouo's work is good taste,
good sense and economy. Tho careful
person will tako pains to proscrvon now
calico no loss than a now silk. Wo
know a young lady onco who put on a
nlco now calico which alio had taken
great pains to mako and woro It through
tho morning dow to milk tho cows.
To keep her arms from being soiled or
tanned by tho sun, sho declined to turn
up tho sleovcs of tun arcs?, in two
days tho nlco now cnllco looked llko tho
rest of her dresses, dowdy, slatternly,
unclean. Wo know another young lady
who had silk dresses nul not ono ol
them was fit to wear, though nono ol
them had been mado above a year.
They wcro spotted, draggled, tumbled,
mussed, nbuscd. Wo know another
young lady who was tho fortunate pos
sessor ol ono nice black alpaca dross
which sho woro on all occnslons thu
season through turn always appcartti
faultlessly dressed. Sho hud no work
to do that would especially soil her
clothes. If a stray drop of anything
that could mako a spot fell upon her
dress It wns at onco removed. All dust
was brushed oft', n spongo dlppod in
ammonia water brightened faded places,
and snowy collars nnd cuff suggested
dainty habits of cleanliness.
Tho caro of clothing to bo oasy must
bo habitual. The hardest part is in
forming tho habit, and this cannot too
early in lilo bo formed. Most children
lovo to mako mud pics, and play In the
dirt generally, and glvo llttlo heed to
keeping themselves clean. This Is all
well enough at times, and thoy should
bo Indulgod in their mud pies, provided
thoy nro dressed for tho work. But it
Is "poor folksy" in tho last degree to
allow a child to play In tho dirt with
nice clothes on, or to permit a young
person to dress inappropriately whllo
at work. It is vastly easier to change
a good coat for a poor ono than It Is to
rcstoro to Its pristino condition a soiled
coat. It is vastly easier to put on a
pair of ovornlls than It Is to spongo
thorouiililv u pair of pantaloons. But
tho worst of it is that thoso who neg'
lect to clmngo tho coat and to put op
tho overalls neglect, also, tho sponging
and cleaning processes, and lot dust and
A clothes-brush, a wisp brooiu.a bot-
tlo of ammonia, a sponge, a hand
brush, a cako of eraslvo soap, a vial of
alcohol, should form a part of tho fur
nishings of overy toilet. Aftor all dost
has boon removed from clothing spots
may bo taken out of black cloth with
tho hand-brush dipped In a mixturo of
equal parts of ammonia, alcohol and
water. This will brichton as woll ns

TI1K LOOM OF I.1TK.
kbsn . mxronD.
All day, all night, I can hear the Jar,
Ot the loom of life near and afar,
It thrills with Its deep and mufti jd sound,
As the tireless wheels go always around,
Baslly, ceaselessly goes the loom
In the light of day and the midnight's gloom;
The wheels are turning early and late,
And the woof Is wound In tho warp of fate.
Click, clack I there's a thread ot lovo wove
Click, clack! and another ot wrong and sin;
What a checkered thing will this life be,
When we see It unrolled In eternity I
Time, with a face llko a mystery,
And bands as busy as hands can be,
Bits at the loom with Its warp outspread,
To catch In Us meshes each glancing thread
When shall this wonderful web be docvt
In a thousand years, perhaps, or one;
Or to-morrow. Who Unowethl Not you
Hut the wheels turn on, and tho shuttles fly.
Ah, sail eyed weaver, the years aro slow.
But each one Is ncareo the end, I know,
And some day the last thread shall he wove
And grant It be lore, Instead of (In.
Arc we spinners of woof for this llfo web-
Do we furnish tho weaver a thread each day)
It were better then, oh, my friend, to spin
A beautiful thread, than a throaj of sin.
I10W WE CAUGHT HIM.
Tho bnnklug houso of Shavowoll
Brothers had been victimized by an ex
tensive forgery so clearly planned and
executed that, In dotcctivo circles, thcro
was but ono opinion as to Us authorship.
There was but ono hand skillful enough
for such a pleco of work that of Dun
ford Mnrwlck, a most accomplished
rascal whoso craft and cunning had
carried him through a long career of
roguery In splto of tho best laid schemes
to trap him. On tho occasion a heavy
rowaril was offered for his apprehen
sion. I had butlatoly been enroll d a mem
ber of tho detective forco, and wns am
bitious of rising. Heio was n golden
opportunity golden In every senso, for
whoever caught Marwlck would not
only bo a mado man, but would put n
round sum into his pocket.
While others woro boating tho bush
In different directions, f resolved to go
on a stlll-huntof my own. I had infor
mation that Marwick had a set of asso
ciates in a placo about a hundred miles
away, with whom, it was not unlikely,
he had sought and found a hlding-plnco.
At any rate, it could do no harm to
mako a rcconnoisanco in tho neighbor
hood. I took tho next train with a view to
carrying out my plan. Securing a acat
favorable for observation, I commenced
glancing over tho morning paper and
my fellow passongers. I had no par
ticular expectation of finding nny oho
answering to Marwlek's description
nmong them still it was woll onough
for ono in my placo to kcop his eyes
It was not long, howovor, till my oo
cupation was interrupted. A plain
looking countryman, cntorinir from a
forward car, asked and wns accorded
permission to sharo my seat. Ho proved
ono of thoso Irrepresslbly sociable fol

Ho told mo his namo without waiting
to bo asked it was Seth Wiggins, ho

"Du toll!" returned Mr. Wiggins,
looking as much surprised as if I had
said Heliogabalus. Ho was evidently
ono of thoso who think it propor to re
ceive whatever you may say with a cor
tain poljto astonishment.
When Mr. Wiggins had oxhausted
politics and tho "crap" and given mo a
census of his live-stock, including Mrs.
Wiggins and tho young ones, ho broach
ed tho subject that was uppermost In
my mind or would havo been but for
his ctornal clatter.
"That wns a nation smart trick that

But my opponent lost his tcmpor nt last,
and planted a blow of his right (1st

Snlt Pork Three Times n Day.
Tho following plain tnlk is from tho
Sanitarian of Dr. A. N. Boll, Now
Tho Herald reports: "A Now York
journalist, who has for many years been
nflllctcd with dyspepsia so that ho could
not oat even thu most delicato fruits,
recently visited Arizonn, and found thnt
ho could cat fried salt pork threo times
a day." Had ho tried tho same diet
boforo going, possibly ho would havo
fared quito as woll. Ho might havo re
quired a fow trips to Conoy lslnnd or
Long Beach and bnck, or a dally walk
before dinner from Printing Houso
Squnro to his up-town homo, to stimu
late his appollto when ho would havo
found tho samo good effects from fried
salt pork in Now York ns in Arizona.
By "fried salt pork" wo would bo un
derstood as recommending It or somo
other kind ol food containing a sufli
clcnt amount of digcstiblo fat. Tho
dlffercnco between salt pork and bacon,
in this respect, if equally wolV prepared,
is n matter ot tasto, and with cither ono
properly cooked and woll-mado hot
griddto cakes, dally, for broaklast,
o urnnlists would rarely f.nd it necessa
ry to seek n better climato than may bo
found within easy access to Now York;
or a diet which will hotter fortify them
against tho common dnngors of city
filth. Fried s It pork or bacon, to bo
good, should bo first simmered or par
boiled In a sufficient quantity of
water to dissolve out tho excess of
salt nnd to mako It tondcr, nnd then
fried brown not to n crisp. For somo
persons, a moro delicato way is, aftor
parboiling tho moat, to turn tho slices
in whoaton flour batter, and fry them
"Delicate fruits" diet, particularly for
breakfast, which ordinarily moans ab
stinence from substantial fats, is tho
death of many Journalists ns woll as
other person?, whom journalists should
tcaoh to know hotter. Restore tho old
fashioned "hog and hominy" to its
wanted place, and thoro would bo such
a lalllng off in tho death rnto here
abouts as would oven astonish tho keop
or of tho streets so ruuch better would
people bo ablo to withstand their vilo
emanations. In short, editors should
teach tho pcoplo in theso latitudes that,
in ono way or ansther, overy full grown
man or woman nnd evory youth requires
nbout two ounces of somo kind of fat
dally, as a portion of his or her diot,
and if not taken as food, tho timo is
hastened whon it has to bo ns medicine
to simply prolong It may bo for a year
or two a niisorablo oxistonco with con
sumption or othor fatal diseaso In con
senuonco "dyspopsla" an d
boing commonly tho fltst admonitions.
A journalist, or any othor person In this
latitudo, who long neglects to tako a
duo proportion of fatty food to maintain
bodily tcmpernturo, will soon find him
solf growing lean, his system will Ilvo
upon its interstitial fat that whioh is
distributed throughout tho bodily tis
sues of hoalthy porsons and ho will
shortly bogln to havo dyspoptlo symp
toms, on account of tho deficiency in
his food to maintain healthy nutrition.
And for this condition, it is unfortu
nately too often tho case, medicine or
moonshino Is given in promotion of tho
danger. Fortunnto, indeed, Is it if such
puraons can bo dispossessed of their in
fatuation by a trip to Arizona, or any
where olso to restore tbom to a senso of
tholr wants, aud tho wit to uso them.
Many porsons wlu, from tho cultivation
of u vitiated tasto for dolicaclcs, or un
der tho inllucnco of bad advice, have
lost tho power of assimilating tho fat of
meats, may do much towards regaining
tho lost power by tho uso of woll-mado
"shortoned" broad broad mado of
dough to which lard or butter Is added;
or somo of tho preparations of ground
whoat or Indian meal. Of this latter,
johnny cako nnd cush are particularly fi
commondablo. Johnny cako Is mado
of coarso cornmoal, mixed with boiling
wator atod sufllolont salt, shortoned by
tho addition of lard. It should bo woll
boaton or thoroughly stirred, and of
such consistency ns to bo easily spread
on a smooth board. Thus prepared,
placo It upright against propor supports
on tho hearth boforo tho fire and bako
it; whon ono sido is baked, turn it on
tho board aud bako tho other, and when
woll dono on both sides servo it hot.
Cush is coarso common! stirred in hot
wator to tho conslstonco of a stiff paste
with sufficient salt, nnd shortonod with
lard, tho samo as johnny oako, but in
stead of toasting boforo tho flro, put
tho dough into a skillet ovor a hot tiro
and stir constantly till dono about
forty mlnutos. Sorvo hot.
Tho uso of butter and ollvo oil, both
itt tablo and in cookory, should bo en
couraged, especially for young porsons,
