THE GRAIN MARKET.
Liverpool. July 5. Wheat opened
to up from Saturday and further
advanced after the opening, gaining
to , with offers light and shorts cov
ering freely. Notwithstanding the
larger world's shipments, a smaller
amount was received here than expect
ed and the amount showed a decrease.
Reports from Russia are of great heat
and much anxiety for crops, wjth their
markets very firm, and the private re
ports of great heat in America. The
Prussian official report is bullish, and
these caused free speculative buying.
At 1:30 p. m. the market was strong
and ?8 to 1 higher than Saturday.
Corn was higher, with the under
tone strong. World's shipments were
lighter than expected, with a decrease
on passage, and private reports of very
hot weather in America caused very
heavy realizing by shorts.

" PLANT CULTURE
Dent Da the Watering Act In the
Evening Just Before Dark.
The following article was prepared
bj representatives of the national
council of horticulture to stimulate
interest In gardening:
While planta can stand great ex
tremes In temperature, corresponding
extremes In moisture surely will tend
to ruin If not to kill the strongest of
them. Water should be given only
when needed, then In such quantity
that the soil Is soaked. Soft stemmed
plants, especially those with large
leaves, need much more water than
hard wooded, slow growing varieties,
and, while the former kind easily re
cover from drought, the latter usually
suffeT permanent Injury from ex
tremes. Heavy clayey soils sour easily, while
light loamy soils dry out quickly, and
unless carefully watched the plants in
such soil soon will wilt. In either
case It Is better to water thoroughly
and only when needed than to water
sparingly and often.
The season and time of day should
be considered in watering. Plants not
In active growth should be watered
sparingly until they nave regained
their foliage. Watering in the even
ing. Just before dark, will greatly aid
the growth of fungous diseases, as
the foliage will continue wet through
the night. It also causes "damping
off" of young cuttings and plants.
Never water during heavy, cloudy

strains, so If we continue them we
must expect to break as of old.
Athletes stop their efforts merely be
cause they are beaten by younger
men. but the nonathletic seem to think
that It Is necessary to keep up exces
sive exercise, though the tissues simply
cannot stand It There Is, then, no
mystery in the large number of dam
aged hearts now being found, and they
will continue to Increase In number
and severity until the medical profes
sion succeeds in impressing the lesson.
Let us repeat It over and over again
until every man over forty or forty

lotted time of physical vigor and must
ease up the strains to retain bis health.
There Is no reason except abuse why
so many men break at fifty-five or

seventy or seventy-five, and it is our
duty to show how.
The First Was Drawn by a Fellow Stu
dent at Brionno.
Napoleon in caricature Is one of the
most prolific of subjects. Indeed. Euro
pean political caricature from 1709
until 1S15 may be said to have been
Napoleon. Although in France this
form of pictorial art was rigidly sup
pressed, GJIray and Rowlandsou In
England and a score of artists in Ger
many and Austria were depicting the
great emperor as the most infamous
The first known caricature of Bona
parte was drawn years before the first
consulate, when the Bourbons still sat
upon the throne of France. It is re
produced n Norwood Young's "The
Growth of Napoleon." Young Bona
parte's years at the military academy
at Brienne were not happy ones. He
was n Corslcan. and at that time Cor
sica was a recently conquered prov
ince. The cartoon, which was drawn by a
schoolmate, represents the future em
peror standing, a severe and determin
ed look upon his face, with both bands
on the top of a musket, resting the
butt on the ground. A smaller figure
behind him, an old man whose nose
nearly reaches his chin, is pulling him
back by his wig.
Napoleon's feet face in two direc
tionsone forward, the other back

parte rushes to the aid of Paoli to
rescue him from the band of his ene

Net Ruled by Caste, but Are Grsat
Sticklers For Etiquette.
The pleasures of the Persians are in
the main refined. They have not
many kinds of recreation. Conversa
tion is one of their chief enjoyments.
Although a large proportion of them
can neither read nor write, I think we
must call them an intellectual people.
They are natural linguists, and since
their country Is inhabited by many
different races they are obliged to
speak several different languages. It
Is not uncommon to find a man who
scarcely knows his right hand from
his left who can speak two or three
languages fluently. To this number a
man of any education whatever would
add two or three more.
There Is no caste among any of the
races found in Persia. A son of Naslr-1-Dln
Shah's butler became his prime
minister; a peasant girl once became
the first favorite of this same king's
anderun because she lifted ber veU as
the king was passing through her na
tive Tillage aDd her beauty appealed
to the royal fancy.
But while there Is no caste the Per
sians sre In some ways great sticklers
for etiquette. The Zi-i-Sultan. the old
est and most capable son of Naslr-1-Dln,
could not succeed his father oa
the throne because his mother was
not of royal birth. All social func
tions, moreover, are attended with the
most rigid ceremonies, and woe to the
person wbo attempts to overstep the
bounds which custom has prescribed
for his rank. Mary A. Colquboun In

GRAY HAIRS BANISHED.
The oM idea, of using safe for darken
ing the hair Is again coming In vogue.
Oar grandmothers used to have dark,
glossy hair at the of eeventy-five,
while our mothers have white hair before
they are fifty. Our grandmothers used
to make a "teas e tea" and apnly it to
their heir. The tea made their hair soft
and glossy sad gradually restored the
natural color. One objection to using
such a preparation w tn trouble ol
making it, especially as it bad to be
