Prowentlua and Tnatmeat of Gapes and
A correspondent writing in the New
York World has the following to say:
As a means of prevention from the gapes
in young chickens it is admitted that
they should be kept from wet and dirty
places. If they be troubled with this
distemper it nearly always comes from
worms in the ctod and throat, as owl-.

those of mature age. Onions chopoed

Saint in Corn.
A bulletin on corn smut from the
Nebraska agricultural experiment sta
tion says: '-In a general way use as many
pounds of blue vitriol as gallons of
water. The immersion should not la.st
longer than fifteen or twenty minutes'
Many consider a much shorter period in
a strong solution sufficient. It should
be remembered, however, that clean
seed does not insure the crop against in
fection from other sources. Bluestoning
the seed will not prevent injury from th.'
germs left over in the field from smutty
fodder or in the manure of animals fed
with it. It simply kills the germs that
may be on the seed that would other
wise develop along with it in the ground
and thus enter the growing plant. The
black powder consists of spores which
reproduce smut, much as seeds reproduce
ordinary plants. Hence the necessity of
destroying all smutted stalks and ears
and keeping the ground from becoming
filled with spores.
Forwarding Early Plants.
Gardeners in Europe, especially in Eng
land and France, used many devices for
protecting and forwarding early plants
which are seldom seen m our country.
Among such devices are the ones shown
in the accompanying illustration, repro
duced from Popular Gardening.

week or two ijefore their regular season.
Our last year's experience with similar
homemade devices for starting melon
hills was highly satisfactory, says the
journal already mentioned. The seeds
were planted in liills, in open ground,
and aver each hill was placed a little
frame, top slanting toward the south
like an ordinary cold frame. Some small
barn windows that we happened to have
on hand were made use' of in place of
sash. The frames were removed after
the plants, which grew thrifty and free
from insect attacks, begun to send out

The exports of clover seed from New

corresponding time in 1890.
Grain farming, as such, according to
the New Jersey's state board of agricult
ure's report for 1890, must be abandoned,
the state being destined to become ag

Hyphenated Postofflce Names.
Some of the residents on the shores of
the Hudson seem to be especially restive
under the humiliation of being compelled
to live in places bearing such common
place and mere American names as Irving
ton Yonkers, Tarrytown, Poughkeepsie,
Aewburg, etc., and insist on heading their
note and letter paper with their hyphen
iaed ideasof what their postoflice addresses
ought to be as "Tarrytown-on-the-Hud-son,"
and similar deviations from the
actual names of their pobtoffices.
There was doubtless good reason in Eng
land for such names (bestowed in pre-post-office
times) ti Weston-under-Lizard, Mid-dleton-on-the-Wids,Stoke-by-Xaylandand
like compounds, needful to distinguish
them from numerous other Westons, Mld
dletons and Stokeses, but in this, count-y,
where there are uo two postoftitsof the
same name name in any state, such link
ing on of useless addenda is simply one of
those "freaks of fatuous folly."
The practice is a vexation to postoffico
clerks, and often leads to the missending of
letters; and this fact is doubtless the rea
son for the admonition which appears in
"The New York Postofflce Guide," under
the head of "Suggestions to the Public:"
"F auciful additions should not be made
to the names of postoffices, as they are apt
to mislead and confuse assorting clerks,
and so cause errors. For example, 'Patta
gumpus, Me.,' should not be extended to
Pattagttmpus-on - the - Penobscot." New
Making It Rather Personal.
This is credited as one of General Lew
Wallace's Turkish jokes: There lived in
Stamboul, Turkey, a well-to-do Tnrk
named Ismad Ismail Hassani. He was en
dowed with oriental wit that stood him
veil in hand when lie was in a tight place.
A neiuhhor called on Ininail one day and
wanted to liorrow lii donkey to u.e an
huiir. Ismail made a low salaam and said:
"Neii;hlior, I am sorry, but my boy start
ed mi tilt- donkey an hoar a so to Scutari.
ly now lie is gajiv trotting over the hills
far from the sacred precincts of Stamboul."
Just as Ismail finished his speech a don
key's loud bray was heard in the stable.
which wits under the same roof as Ismail's
house, but in the rear. The neighbor said:
"Ah, I hear your donkey bray."
Ismail protested that his neighbor's ears
were deceived, and that the uoise was not a
donkey's bray. Then the donkey, which
was supposed to be jogging along toward
Scutari, brayed twice loudly. It, was too
much, and the neighbor cried:
Oh, that is your donkey, Ismail; Allah
help me. 1 can now borrow hiiu."
Then Ismail said:
"Which do you believe is lving, the don-
kev or me?"'
The neighbor had to give Ismail the ben
efit of the doubt, aud went away. Wash
Too Faithful a Portrait.
Photographers have many difficulties to
contend with in the pursuit of their call
ing, and one of these is trying to please all
of their patrons. One of the most promi
nent and conscientious artists in Brooklyn
told me the other day that he had about
concluded not to try and give satisfaction
to his patrons.
"Why," he added, "the more I endeavor
to please them the farther I come from do
ing so. It was only the other day a man
came in here as mad as a hornet. He
brought a picture with him. It was one
of his mother-in-law, I believe, or perhaps
a more distant relative.
" 'Look at that!' he snarled, as be re
moved the wrappings. 'What do you think
of that ?'
" 'Why,' I said, 'I thought it was a most
faithful portrait of the lady.'
" 'Yes,' he almost howled, 'that's where
the trouble comes in; that's the reason
she's made my house as hot as a furnace
and my life a daily torment. Yes, that's
the trouble. Don't you sea t he portrait is
too blanked faithful! See if vou cau't do
something with it and tone it down or
touch it up anything to re-establish peace
in the fainil'v'
"Xow what do you think of that?" said
the photographer, as he heaved a sigh.
