came. Whllo some looked after the live

some sort, which excited tho suspicions
of thou soldiers, which wero confirmed
when they discovered a lino white pow

A CHEMATION FREAK.
Tlio Hotly of n Veteran Turn to Mnrbls
While llolng llurneil.
A lottor from Cussvllle, Mo., to ths
St, Louis (Hobo-Democrat tolls this:
Great Interest Is manifested bore ovor a
roAiiarkablo clrcumstanco which ha just
como to light. It happoncd on Off
Davis, near lluzzard 1'oost. When old
man Clayback camo out of tho lato war
ho was a physical wreck, but llko many
othors of tho Stato militia was too Inde
pendent to ask for n pension, oven If ho
could bavo secured one, and mado bis
living In tho best way ho could until his
six boys and seven girls got old enough"
to help him.
About live years ago tho old man bo
gan to get very bad vvltji rhoumatlsm, as
ho thought, and, nlthough ho used tho
entlro crop of spicewood berries which
grew on tho creek, ho continued to got
worse. Two years ago he got so stiff as
to bo confined to his house, and called In
a physician, who, after carefully diag
nosing tho case, gavo as bis opinion that
instead of rheumatism ailing tho man It
was a true caso of ossification.
Tho dlscaso continued, comploto ossi
fication took place, and tho old man
died. How to carry out tho wlshos ot
tho deceased, who bad expressed a de
sire to bo cremated, at first troubled the
bereaved family, until they learned that
Stephen Symphony was burning lime in
bis kiln, which had been fired throo days
and was reaching a wblto beat Desir
ing to save tho ashes they procured a
largo ovaporatlng pan belonging to a
molasses mill. Placing tho remains in
this, they carefully shoved tho wbolo
into tho kiln, which was an opon one on
top, and, being built in tho sldo of the
hill, was easily accessible.
Tho sorrowing family gathered around,
expecting tho rapid incineration and dis
integration of tho departed. In a fovv
minutes tho winding sheet was gono and
tho naked body was exposed to tho in-'
tenso beat, From the ears, nostrils and
mouth camo jets of steam, broken at
first, then solid, nnd in an hour bad
ceased, but no change was perceivable
In tlm silent form. More wood was fed
to the glowing furnace to make the vigil
of tho bereaved briefer, but still no
hange. More wood was pitched In,
and hotter still the fire raged. Hour
after hour passed, and from a glowing
red to an opaque white tho body turned,
while on tho countenanco seemed to
lest an expression of Infinite peace and
satisfaction. So threo days wore away,
and the fire must bo drawn or the limo
spoiled. Twenty-four hours later, by
means of grappling hoops, the pan and
body were raised, and, to the surpriso of
overy one, the body was still Intact and
glowing. A greater and moro pleasant
surprise, however, awaited the family,
for when tho body becamo cold it was
ascertained, that tho intenso heat acting
upon the ossified body bad changed It to
perfect marble a llttlo lighter In color
than tho natural body, but retaining
its natural sbape.cxcept on tho back,
which is a little flattened.
The only defects aro where there was
a bullet wound and In the left foot,
which is broken in two. In 1870 Mr.
Clayback cut his foot very severely,
splitting it between the. second and third
toes, and, follow ing this wound a rup
ture appeared, which caused tho loss as
above stated. Where a small blood ves
sel had burst in his leg thcro appeared
a delicate tracing of tho circulation.

FARM AND GARDEN.
Bom Tiling That Dairymen Ought Not
Tho disheartening prlcos of 189D for
tiuttor nnd ohooso will very llkoly
bavo a demoralizing olTect upon farm
ers engaged In this branoh of farming.
Lot mo urgo yon all, says a writer In
tho Ohio Farmor, not to show tho
whit fcathor for a momorit or loso your
grip at all. It will bo a bettor business
In tho near future. Now Is tho ttmo to
rovlow tho work and soo whoro mis
takos havo boon mado. I will point you
to ono or more things to consider.
I think It is vory bad policy to lot a
veal calf suck a dairy cow flvo or six
weeks and havo all tho milk in April or
May, to mako a throo to four dollar
veal carcass. You might just as woll
mako from sovonty-flvo cents to ono dol
lar per wcok of tiuttor from tho same
milk' and feed tho skim milk to tho
calf, slightly warmed, and whonolght to
ton woeks old It will thon bring moro
money than tho veal calf doos at from
four to six weeks old, and you como out
from flvo to eight dollars per head
hotter, for tho reason that cows will
glvo moro milk right along If the
calves aro novor allowed to suck thorn
at all aftor thomllk Is good.
This advantage, togothor with tho OX'
tra buttor made, will amount to full)
that sum. Farmers that send milk tc
cbeeso factories aro tlio most apt tc
commit this blunder. It butter com
mands tho very low prlco It doos to-daj
olght conts per pound and I am buy
ing hundreds ot pounds of It from mer
chants at that prlco this week It Is fai
bettor for tho farmer to buy somo good,
largo, clean, pork barrels and fill there
with a good strong brlno about ono
third full, and as fast as they mako the
butter not let It bo exposed to the all
at all, but mako it Into rolls and wrar.
it In thin, cheap cotton cloth, so the
rolls will not stick together and pul
them Into this brlno and keep a fol
lower with stono weights on to press
It down under tho brlno all the time,
and your butter will keup In tho best
condition from early spring to winter.
Packing In crooks or wooden tubs car
novor bo mado to do as well as tho above
plan. You can then hold your buttoi
safely until tho hot weather prices aro
over and get morn money for it later
on. If it Is over mado fit to eat It will
bo good for many months. Theso bar
rels should bo placed in somo good, cool
placo and as freo as posslblo from any
unnecessary stinks. Tho buttor will
not absorb any too much salt from the
brine. This reform is possible for overy
family to observe, and especially where
they keep only ono or two cows; If they
will manage tlio business as above
stated they can keep up their own sup
ply of butter and not fool forced to soil
cheap In hot weather and pay dear foj
It In winter months.
Mr. F. L. Washburn, tho entomolo
gist of the Oregon experiment station,
writes to tho llural Now Yorkor that
tho trapshownhorevvitli hasproved vyry
successful In catching gophors in
California. In tho last bulletin Issued
from the Oregon station a good deal is
said about killing gophers. Tho pic
ture needs no explanation. Tho trap is
sot at tho bottom ot tho gopher's hole.
It Is doubtful If ho knows "what struck
him" after tho trap springs. Anothci
method is to sink five-gallon oil cans

at night, and, on trying to como into

A "smokor," or "sulphur gun" is some

fifteen feet squaro in a locality lnfostod
by rabbits, is surrounded by a board
fenco high enough to prevent tholr

runs from tho ground, with an oasy
slope, to tho top of tho pen, and pro
jects a foot over tho lnclosurc. Above

Tho following mothod of filling up
lall holes in wood is not only simple,
but said to bo effectual. Take lino saw
dust and mix Into a thick paste with
gluo, pound it into tho holo, and when
dry It will mako tho wood as good as
now. l'rank Christian, Jr., In Stove
and Hardware says ho has followed
this plan for thirty yoars with unvary
ing succoss In repairing hollows, which
Is tho most sovoro tost known. Often
by frequent attachment ot now loathor
to old bellows framos, tho wood be
comes so perforated that tboro Is no
spaco to drive tho nails, and ovon if
thcro was, tho remaining holes would
allow tho air to escape. Gluo and saw
dust pasta do tho work, whllo load,
putty and othor remedies otton fall.
