A Georgia physician has discovered a
peculiar insect, oblong and flit, that in

The older the bill the more bugs. When

This will probably account for the many

Ex Speaker Tom Reed takes no pains
to conceal his contempt for the recipro
city humbug. In a recent interview he
declared ht reciprocity arguments
are "attrtnf.U to carry on commerce by
diplomacy," and that "the commercial
world can only do business on great com
mercial principles, not on correspondence
between state .departments." There is good
deal of truth in this.and it not only makes
war against Blaine's reciprocity scheme,
but also against McKinley'g Chinese wall
policy. The fact that it was manifestly
Inspired by jealousy and hatred of Mr.
Blaine in no wise detracts from its force.
However, it has moved the Globe Dem
ocrat to indignation, and that rabid ex
ponent of Blaineism declares that Reed's
"sneering reference to a scheme which is
converted into law by a measure which
he himself supported is an imputation on
his party loyalty, and the ignorance
which it displays is a reflection upon
bis knowledge and resources as a statesman."
The cities of Rock Island and Moline
now stand in those relations to each
other which they should have held a
quarter of a century sgo. Had the
friendly feeling which is the outgrowth
of Tuesday night's conference at the
Harper, been cultivated years ago both
cities would Lave beeu more prosperous
and larger than tbey cow are, if, indeed,
the sectional line would not have entirely
disappeared. Rock Island and Moline
are practically one, fteographically speak
ing, and can never be otherwise, and
both have stood in their own light as
well as in t'uu lisjht of each other by pur
suing an unfriendly and antagonistic
course. Let us hope that the Columbian
celebration project upon which both bvc
entered so heartily will lead not only to
the success of the endcaycr far surpassinz
the expectiots of the present, but that
henceforth the two citits may work to
gether, in everything that looks to the
promotion of both, or of either.
This Is What -ProtectloiT' Does.
During the campaign of 1883, when
the Republican party promised a pro
tective tariff iu the interest of home la
bor, the Arcade File Works company, of
Sing Sing, Republican in policy, 'assured
their men better times and higher wages,
and the men supported the ticket. The
higher wages have never come, nor, ap
parently, the better times, for the com
pany has now ordered a reduction in the
wages of their employes of from 13 to 40
These employes do not see the benefit
of this sort of protection, and held a
meeting to take some action about it.
After discussing the unpleasant subject
for some time they decided to adjourn
and make inquiry as to the prices paid
by shops in other places, and then they;
will determine what they will do. 3ev
Attention has recently been called W
the failure of a large manufacturer of
wool hats. At the time of this failure
it was stated that the high duty on wool
and other materials was the main causo
fit. The effect of the tariff on the)
wool hat industry may be seen from thW
statement that it now costs under the
JllcKinley law $5.52 to manufacture
one dozen all wool hats, whereas if there
were no tariff tax the cost would be only

A ROOT HOUSE.
Bow to ProTide Safe- Storage for Winter
Vegetables and Boots.
When large quantities of roots are
grown on the farm, a root house for the
safe storage of winter vegetables and
rcots becomes a decided convenience,
and in some cases an absolute necessity.
With a view to assisting farmers who
may contemplate the building of a
stecial storage room, we here give an
illustrated description of a roothouse
from Country Gentleman.
The roothouse may be bnilt on level
or sloping ground. If level, it may be
mostly above ground, or partly sunk if
ample drainage can be secured. On
sloping ground the same care is required
for drainage. The walls, whether of
wxhI, brick or stone, should be double,
with an air space to exclude frost. The
dcor should nlso be double, as well as the
roof. Ample provision mnt be made
for ventilation to prevent ..eating or

rotting of the contents, taking care that
freezing air does not enter in winter.
The roots and vegetables should be sup
ported on slatted floors, where the air
can pass freely under in a space of sev
er il inches or a foot.
The accompanying figure represents a
roothouse placed on sloping ground,
with an entrance door below and small
window above, which may be opened or
clied at pleasure, or partly opened, as
circumstances and temperature may re
quire, for ventilation. The small ventil
ar.ng tower in the roof may be added,
in which case the window would be
closed during severe weather
Facts Worth Remembering.
The following notes in regard to spray
ing with poisonous substances fur the
destruction of insects and combatting
fungoid growths, are condensed from a
paper read by Professor Maynard before
this Massachusetts Horticultural society:
Of all the arsenites paris green gives
thi- best results as an insecticide.
The longer the mixture containing ar
set ites stands the greater the injury from
The foliage of the peach, plnm and
cherry is more susceptible to injury than
that of the apple or jwar.
The injury varies with the varieties,
some being more susceptible than others.
Young leaves are less injured than
those fully developed, and are more in
jured on weak trees than on those that
art- vigorous and healthy.
Paris gTeen cannot be used alone with
safety stronger than one pound to 300
gallons of water, but with the lime mix
ture it may le safely used at one pound
to from fifty to two hnndred gallons.
The foliage is most injured when kept
constantly wet by light rains or foggy
we liher.bnt heavy rains lessen the injury.
The least injury is dene when the
liq tor dries off root rapidly.
The time of day when the application
is mada is unimportant.
Points in Corn Cultare.
7e find the following in a bulletin
from theSouth Dakota station: Thorough
preparation of the soil before planting
and early cultivation before and immedi
ately after the corn is up are the surest
and most economic methods of clearing
the field of weeds. Frequent shallow cul
tivation throughout the first half of the
season pives the wort favorable conditions
for fall growth and maturity, and fosters
the moisture in the sail for the use of the
plaat. The varieties of corn that have
proved lest in the statiou tests are as
follows: Flints Landreth's Estra Early,
Kii:g Philip, Early Canada, Yellow Smut
Nose, Chadwick, Blue Blade, Self Hush
ing, Pride of Dakota. Dentfi Loveland's,
Hnghson's. Gold Coin, Davis' White and
Dakota Kin.tr. AH the above varieties,
plauted at different intervals in May,

Quack Grass antt Canada Thistle.
Those persistent perennials, quack
gra and Canada thistle, can usually, on
land not too rocky or not set with trees,
be got rid of in a single season, says
American Cultivator. Continual plow
ing, so that no green thing appears above
the surface, makes an end of them, and
all the more quickly if the soil be rich
and the growth vigorous. To partly kill
a pi itch of either quack or thistles cannot
be much advantage, for whenever the
ground is cultivated again they soon be
con e worse than ever. Many a farmer
thii ks he has entirely cleared his land of
these pests, only to find after a year or
two that his work has all to be done over
A Good Clover Catch.
Beard's Dairyman tells of a method
employed by a Wisconsin farmer on very
sandy land during several years of drouth
and whereby he has never failed of a
good catch of clover. He first soaks his
seed for two days, then takes it to th
barn floor, and for every bushel of seed
he nixes with it a bushel of land plaster
by shoveling the two together until each
seed is coated with a shell of plaster.
The plaster seems to retain the moisture
in the seed until it gets a firm rooting, and
his marked success gives evidence of
merit in the plan.
About Floor Covering's. Furniture, Screens,
It will mark another advance when we
all come to recognise more generally that
a cool matting with rugs or an ingrain
square is, for rich and not rich alike, the
second best summer floor covering, the
best being beyond qestion hard wood with
the same alle iatious.
There are so many beautiful willow rock
ers, tete-a-tete chairs and other shapes
that one can easily select a varied and
satisfactory assortment. Bamboo is now
wrought into tables, desks, bookracks,
cabinets and screens. You can furnish a
room beautifully with such belongings.
Among the novelties iu screens are those
of green glass for fireplaces, painted with
yellow daffodils, chrysanthemums or mi
mosa. Other screens in green velvet are
decorated with quaint Indian designs,
painted in yellow, with draperies of tofC
yellow silk as trimmings.

The liest way is to obtain suds by dissolv
ing shaTtngs of soap iu a basin of hot
water, then adding the solution to the

with black lawn, which should be quickly

Snow pudding may be made with one
third of it package of gelatine in a little
told water, and when softened stir it into
a pint of boiling water; add one cupful of
sugar, the juice of two lemons or one-half
cupful of wine, as preferred; when cold
and beginning to thicken add the well
beaten whites of three eggs. Beat all
lightly aud smoothly together, pour the
mixture into a mold and set it aside to
harden. Serve in the center of a dish, with
a boiled custard poured around it. Make
the custard with the yolks of three eggs,
one pint of milk and half a cupful of
sugar, with flavoring to taste.
A Pretty Dish.
The following is a very pretty dish for a
company tea: First make good lemon jelly
in the usual way. If you have no tried
recipe, the directions on the package of
gelatine can be followed. Into some pretty
little teacups put a few One large straw
berries. Turn the jelly over these while
it is still just warm enough to do so. When
you wish to serve the jelly, invert each in
dividual mold into a sauoeplate, and around
the base of the jelly pour a little rich sirup
made with fresh strawberry juice and
sugar. Keep as cold as possible till served.
Cabbage and Peas
Wash and chop two young hearts of cab
bage, put them, with a pint of young peas
and a dessertspoonful of chopped mint,
into boiling water; cook till tender, then
drain. Have a very hot dish, just rub it
with a bit of onion, let an ounce of butter
melt in it, then tarn in the peas and cab
bage, season wit h pepper and salt.
