POPULAR SUBJECTS CONSIDERED IN
A PLAIN, PRACTICAL MANNER.
Aa Illnatrated Description of Few r
th Nwnm Btyle of 2w York Mar
keting Package -Infr ting Ftrti for
To attempt a description of the numer
ous sty-let of package shipped to the
New York markets would be practically
an impossibility. While, of course, there
arc the regulation packages, which might
be called "standards, every sort or crate,
box, barrel, banket or package that can
well be Imagined is uoed by shippers.
American Oarden ventures out of this
medley to bring a few of the marketing
packages into notice as follows:
SOU E KKW YORK MAB1CETTNO PACKAGE.
The half barrel or keg (Fig. 4) seems
to be a favorite package among shippers
of grapes, pears, quinces and fancy
apples, although in grapes those shipped
in kegs are mainly from California; the
Malaga grapes are shipped in a different
keg. 8o Fig. 8. Pears, quinces and
fancy apples come in the small barrels
first mentioned, which hold one bushel.
and are made in the same manner as the
larger barrel; some have ventilation
given by oblong slits cut in the staves
as vegetable barrels are often ventilated.
Commiwtion men, an a rule, term the so
called barrels (see Fig. 2) "frauds." As
one man says: "Some of them are about
the size of a stovepipe, not having
enough bulge to hold the hoops on, and
will not hold more than two bushels of
"The old half barrel U done away with
In a great measure, says the some au
thority, "for they hold too much for i
modern pear grower to make use of
them; they nw instead a keg so small
that it would require the contents of four
to six of them to C1I a flour barrel."
Figs. 6 and 7 show two styles of pack
ages for celery, which are frequently
seen In the rew iork markets; Fig
being used for shipments in the colder
weather. Fig. 1 shows the best of the
ventilated full size barrels that come into
the New York markets; they are used
most largely for vegetables and sweet
potatoes, but many careful packers use
them for the early fall apples.
In tropical fruits great care is used in
the manner of packing and forms of
packages. Our illustrations show sev
eral packages in which grapes are sent
from California. Fig. 8 is a box holding
two baskets which will hold about three
quarts, while Fig. 5 Illustrates another
four basket package, which is admirably
made, precautions for ventilation having
been taken; the holes are made in the
side of the box as illustrated, and serve
for ventilation through the bottom of
the baskets on the upper tier and over
the tops of the lower tier, the slats being
narrow and only suulcient in number to
properly balance the basket. Japanese
persimmons are usually shipped in boxes,
as illustrated in Fig. 0, each persimmon
being carefully wrapped in paper and
but one layer placed in a box. Fancy
peaches, both the earlier and the late
ones, are put up in "pony" baskets and
two of them set in a crate, as shown in
Fig. 10. Frequently the ordinary straw
berry crate is used for thi purpose and
uoes nicely. "
Lata Flowing far tat Worm.
Professor C. P. Gillette, of Iowa,
credited with recommending late fall
plowing the Jater the better for cut
worms in canes whero early plowing can
not be done. When cold weather comes
on In the full the worms go a few inches
below the surface and shape for them
selves earthen cells in which they spend
the winter. If the plowing l done after
these cells have been formed, the freez
ing anu thawing or winter and spring
will destroy many of the worms and
many will be picked up by insectivorous
birds. The cut worm 4 are nearly always
worst on ground plowed in the spring.
Rd I'ull.d Oxmn.
As dairy cattle the red tilled Nor
folks are famous in England, but only
recently has this breed been conspicuous
as a Dutcher s beast.
CHAMPION or THE NOBWICn BHOW.
The late Norwich fat stock show is
considered by English breeders as hav
ing been a very noteworthy one, because
for the first time in the history of these
exhibitions of the results of the breeder's
art the popular breed of East Anglia
has won the championship against all
the breeds as a butcher's animal. The
ox shown in the cut was first in its class
for oxen under 4 years old, best ox or
steer, best animal in the show, and best
animal bred and fed in Norfolk. Lost
year it was first at this show in a younger
clam, and also won the cup ns the best of
its breed. It was also a winner at Smith
field, where it was first in its l-Iuhs.
Uwranluana In Winter.
1 If the geraniums are expected to
bloom in winter, they should be cut back
considerably as soon as they are done
blooming and then be set in a tunny
place for two or three weeks.

H Bald Cp HI Fnd Bravely.
Two young Englishmen who had run
through their money, and who had been
chums when they were "flush," met
under entirely different circumstances.
About ten years had elapsed. One was
a waiter in a shilling restaurant in Lon
don, where that coin provides for you an
entire dinner, and the other was on the
streets of the great metropolis, with
both pocket and stomach empty. By
great good fortune the latter found a
shiirfng in the street and lost no time in
getting to the restaurant and planking
down the money for his meal.
On looking up he found his old friend
before hira, and a look of disgust and
sorrow came into his face.
"Well, 'pon me word, old chappie," he
said, "I never hexpected to see you fall
so low as to become a wniter in a shil
"Ah. yes. old feller!" said the other.
"It's pretty low down to be a shilling
waiter, but I never eat mo dinners here!"
According to the philosophers, every
thing has two uses, a lower and a higher.
Some very common people find this out
for themselves, so far at least as the
practical application of it is concerned.

As this disease Is rapidly spreading
throughout the country aod various reme
dies for its cure are recommended by phy
sicians we will state what occurred near
the editor home a few days ago. A
neighbor's wife was very low with the
disease and a consultation by three doc
tors was held, the result of which was to
advise, as a last idsort. the use of honey,
ssying that if honey would not save her
life nothing with which they were ac
quainted could be relied upon to meet the
esse. 1 he neighbor c tiled at the editors
residence for some honey and was fully
supplied. It la prepared and used thus
a one-half teacupful of hot honey put tbe
juice of one lemon and take as a dose two
teaspoonsful occasionally, or as often as
seems necessary, and as hot as ran be en
dured comfortably In case tbe stomach
is too weax to retain toe honey, two or
three teaspoonsful of milk will remove
such difficulty. The editor of the Bte
Journal Is following this prescription and
finds great relief from its use. American

About 10 o'clock yesterday moraine
Mrs. Gus Uustafson. a Scandinavian Isdy
whose husband has been before tbe police
magistrate notlong since, came rolling up
to tne police station In a back and want
ed to file information against herself for
putting a head on her husband with a
storm door on it. She stated that she
had stood all she could of the worthless-.
ness of Gus and had polished him off.
According to her story she bad knocked
him clear over the ropes in the second
round and then had asked him to have
her arrested and punished. He declined on
accouut of tbe expense, so she called a
hack and came down in fine style. Tbe
ne didn t go. however. Tbe lnforma

beside the defendant, so tbe lady went

Edison has completed an electric mo
tor for street railway cars. His anange
ment dispenses with the overhead high
tension electric wire, and also wiih the
storage battery. Thus far bis experi
ments have been very, successful, and
within a very short time be expects to be
able to present to the public a motor that
will solve for all time tbe question of
street railway locomollen. His in vi ntion
Is not nearly as complicated or dangerous
as the electric motors which are now in
use on some of the street railways. Io
a few weeks Mr. Edison expects t- give
his Invention a public trial on one of the
street railways In Orsnge. Mr. Idison
stated to a New York reporter that he
would have bad this, bis last Jnveition,
completed Dy tne noi.days, had It not
been for the fact that since his return
from Paris much of his time had bei-n oc
copied lo perfecting the phono' raph
which was complicated.

efforts It will revolutionize street rt llwsy
locomotion entirely, and demonstrate tbe

Nature in Convulsion
Is territ.le. Volcanic eruptions, cyclones,
earthquakes are awfully and tremen
dously picturesque, but scarcely desira
ble to emulate in action and effect by the
administration of remedies which produce
convulsion and agony in the abnormal
portion of tbe human frame. Such is
tbe effect of tbe old fashioned violent
purgatives happily falling more and more
into disuse, and of which Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters is the wholesome, pleas
ant and far more effective succedaneum.
They weakened the intestines the Bit
ters invigorates them. They left tbe
bowels inactive, because incapacitated by
ensuing feebleness. Tbe Bitters, on the
contrary, and because it enables, not
forces, them to act a vsRt and fortunate
difference perpetuates their activity and
regularity. The liver is beneficially stim
ulated, as the kidneys also are, by this
medicine, which easL'y conquers, also,
