The Paris police har t a queer way.
When the bomb had wrecked the cafe of
M. Very, who informed upon Rarachol,
they placed a cordon around the prem
ises. That should have been done before
the damage was it flicted, for the anar
ch sts had boldly given notice of their in
tentions. Scattered throughout the 2.80? coun
ties of the United States there are nearly
65,000 postofflces. Of these about 10,000
are money order efflces, leaving nearly
55,000 that have no other way of trans
mitting money or valuable matter than by
registered mail. These are mostly, if not
entirely, rural offices, remote from banks.
Last year the number of registered pieces
of mail was 11.14S.960, of which there
were lost or destroy d 918 pieces . While
the reyenue from the registry business
amounted to $1,238,906, not a cent of in
dtmnity was paid to make good these
losses. To remedy this Mr. Kribbs, of
Pennsylvania, introduced a bill a few days
ago to indemnify the senders of registered
domestic mail to an amount not exceed
ing f 15 for money aid 3 for merchan
dise. The increesed registry business
with this security would no doubt pay all
A Collapsed Boomlrt.
The hot-house boom which look on the
colors of Col. -Gen. Russell A. Alger
aeems to have been without sufficient
stamina to bear the chills of the late
spring ot the presidential year. It will
probably not blossom sufficiently to'grace
the lapels of any delegation to the nomi
nating convention, and certainly nobody
sow expects any nuts from it in Novem
ber. The Michigan state republican con
vention met and adjourned without put
ting the "drummer boy's" military record
in its platform, and forgot to say
that Michigan holds him to her heart
of beans. Col. A'ger may have some
colored delegates from the south
on top when the Minneapolis convention
meets, but it is probable that they will be
served out to some candidate who is the
first choice of his state, or made a means
to break slates framed by the Senators
from Michigan, upon whom Alger may
lay responsibility for the failure to in
struct by his own state. The aspiring
Michigander has the reputation of being
stubborn, so long as the fight can be car
ried by bank checks, no matter what
opinion Gen. Custer had of his willing
nessjto exchange leaden missiles. Per
haps he has not yet recovered from the
blow given bim by John Sherman in the
anti-trust bill and his remarks thereon
anent the Diamond match trust.
Harper's Weekly has an article con
tributed by B. F. Tillinghast, of Daven
port, entitled, "The Women's Gift to
Russia." The members of the Iowa
women's committee are mentioned, to
gether with an account of their work.
The managing editor of ' Harper's paid
Mi. Tillinghast a high compliment by
sending the manuscript to the printers
without examination, and when the writ
er arrived at his hotel he found awaiting
him a check for ; a goodly sum in pay
ment for the article. The New York Her
aid under date of April 25 devotes a col'
umn and a half to an interview with Mr.
TiUingbast, which is prefaced by this
paragraph: '. "Within the next three' or
four days the steamer, Tynehead. will
sale from New York with the most inter
esting ad moiv important of America's
contributions te , starving Russia.
This is the great offering of the state of
Iowa 83,010 tons of breadstaffs, gath
ered under the direction of the women of
Iowa and forwarded to Russia, under the
auspices of the Red Cross society, the in
ternatiooal league of good works. Miss
Clara Barton, president of the American
National Red Cross society, now in charge
of this contribution, came on from Wash
ington last night to direct the shipment.
Sue met here B. F. Tillinghast, manag
ing editor of the Davenport (Iowa) .Dem
ocrat, and secretary of the Iowa Relief
committee, who came to New York to
formally present ihe gift of his state to
Miss Barton's society." Then follows the
entertaining interview. . ,
how it KtTeeta tke Farmer.
Congressman Wilson: How the Mc
Hinley bill by excluding from our mark
et woolen and woolen clothing made
aoroad, or taxing thim heavily when
they do come in, makes us get our cloth
it g better and cheaper than ever before,
hile by excluding or heavily taxing for
eign wools it enables the farmer to get 10
ci nts a pound more for his wool, is
a problem in contradictions that might
puzzle an ordicary man. But it is ex-
actly the proposition the protectionists'
nt ve undertaken to maintain in order to
reconcile the farmer to the bounty ays
t a. It is hard to believe that they do
net wink at each other when they pre
seit it to him,'. but it is unfortunately too
evident that he has not yet seen through
their skillfully phrased fallacy, for with
out his support in the Mississippi valley
an 1 elsewhere, the McKtnley bill could
not lhst through this session of congress
an 1 would give away precipitately to a
mc re just and equal system of taxes .
Hut for the producer ot our staple farm
crc p the problem is a very simple one.
It resolves itself into two questions:
Wl.ere does be sell and where does be
bu? Let him follow these two inquiries
for a moment and he will not be perplex
ed by the word-fencing ot these advo
cates. I'or every one of our great farm pro
ducts we rc q'tire a market both at home
.3 .w... A k 'in. foAltnr, tltA A man.

can people we must find many millions
mora to feed. We sell to all at the same
price, and the price is npt fixed at home
but abroad. Our wheat, corn, cotton
and provisions compete in England and
elsewhere with wheat, corn, cotton and
provisions from all the rest of the world.
That competition fixes the price not enly
there but here. Hence, so far as the pro
ducer of the staples is concerned, he sells
undt r absolutely free trsde conditions,
with the disadvantage ot having to pay
the cost of carrying them 3,000 miles to
make the sale.
Bit when it comes to buying what is
his predicament? He cannot buy in the
cheap market where he is forced to sell.
If he does undertake to buy his neces
sary clothing, table-ware, cutlery, and
the like in that market, be is obliged to
put aside at least one third of bis money
to pay for the privilege ot bringing tbem
into this country when he returns. He
thus sells in a free trade market subject
to its fiercest competition snd realizes
for himself in the final settlement but
two-thirds of the price that market af
fords for his product.
But. it may be said the farmer buys his
clothing, table ware, cutlery and the like
in the TJoited States. That is true, yet
he buys from those who not only refuse
to do as he does, submit their products to
the ccm petition of foreign markets, but
refuse to compete in our own market with
foreign products nay, who demand of
the government that it shall save them
from Huch competition by a tariff of at
least 1 50 on a $100 on like foreign pro
ducts, so that whether the farmer buys of
his foreign or his borne customer he gets
for hiriself but two-thirds the value ot
the free trade prices of his crops. In the
one ca the government takes from him
in duties that other third r in the second
case the government enables the borne
producer to add the third to the price of
his gocds by shielding him from competi
tion with the foreign customer. Both
cub toners pay the farmer exactly the
same price for his wheat corn or cotton.
The one is willing to sell him in return at
two-thirds of the price demanded by the
other but the law steps in to forbid the

MANURES FOR THE GARDEN.
Nitrate, Wood Ashes and Other Specific
Fertilizers Employed by Gardeners.
No other single lnanurial element
gives to the gardener the opportunities
and possibilities that he finds in nitrates,
especially in the form of nitrate of soda,
Ears Greiner. in his "TTnw in Afalra that
Garden Pay." The effects of this salt
on many garden crops is remarkable and
can generally be observed within a few
days after its application in the darker
foliage and thrifty growth. It is readily
soluble and its nitrogen is in right form
for immediate absorption . by the roots
of plants. The natural process of con
verting unavailable nitrogenous mat
ter into soluble nitrates is very slow in
early spring. In nitrates we have just
the element of plant food needed, and by
applying it in small quantities, as fast
as the plants can utilize it, we can stim
ulate thrifty growth of foliage at a
Nitrate of soda contains about 16 or
17 per cent, of nitrogen, but this in a
most soluble form, so that it would not
be safe to use it in large quantities at a
time, for what is not at once converted
into plant structure will gradually sink
through the soil and be lost. The most
economical method is the application of
not over liw pounds to 150 pounds per
acre, repeated at intervals of about two
weeKs. il lumpy, pound fine before ap
plying it. Scatter it over the ground
when the foliage of plants is dry, as it is
apt to scorch the leaves otherwise, or
still better, apply just before or during a
rain, wnen it will be dissolved and car
ried into the soil at once. Sprinkling
over the land in solution is a 6afe but
generally less convenient mode of appli

more lasting in its effects, and it can be

applications without fear of loss. It
may take the place of nitrate of soda
during the warmer part of the season
with gratifying results, and in combina
tion with that salt at any time, the lat
ter for immediate effect, the former as
a more gradual source of supply. The
price of sulphate of ammonia is a trifle
higher than that of nitrate of soda. Hen
manure, which is especially rich in ni
trogen, Greiner composts with loam,
muck, leaves, etc, and applies after
plowing broadcast, and stirs into the
surface soil by means of harrow, culti
vator and rake. In the cut is shown
spinach grown on ground manured with
one ton per acre of high grade complete
fertilizer and a good topdressing of
composted hen manure, with frequent
but very light applications of nitrate of
soda; also spinach, fed in the usual way
with 6table compost.
In cotton seed meal we have another ni
trogenous manure of special value for the
market gardener, but as yet very little
appreciated. A ton contains about 140
pounds of nitrogen, 60 pounds of phos
phoric acid, and 40 pounds of potash.
When mixed and composted with stable
manure it increases the comparative
amount of nitrogen of the latter, and
therefore its effectiveness. Gardeners
who keep stock should feed cotton seed
meal. It then gives double return,
namely, in increase of flesh and im
provement of manure. Where nitrato
of soda, on account of distance from
source of supply and consequent high,
cost, cannot be used advantageously,
cotton seed meal can often be had at a
comparatively low price, and' should
then be used in place of the nitrogen
Potash in any special form is hardly
ever needed for the crops on common
garden land, since stable compost and
the average high grade complete fertil
izer supply an abundance, and often an
excess of it, to the crops already. A dif
ferent thing it ia with peaty and mucky
soils. These have already an abundance
of the nitrogenous element, although
mostly in fixed combinations, and hence
in an unavailable form. On the other
hand the mineral elements are scantily
supplied. Stable manure would add a
comparatively large amount of nitrogen
at great expense to the already vast
store, and but small quantities of phos
phoric acid and potash. Such lands, for
that reason, can be made productive in
the cheapest and quickest way by appli
cations of phosphoric acid and potash
in the form of a plain superphosphate or
bonemeal in combination with wood
It has been demonstrated over and
over again, says Hoard's Dairyman:
First That there has been no way yet
discovered whereby any man, be he rich
or poor, can harvest, alsalter and keep
from waste fodder for cows', whether
few or many, bo cheaply, expeditiously
and certainly as by storing same in a
silo. While the preponderance of testi
mony ia .decidedly in favor of cutting
the corn or clover or whatever may be
put in the silo, it is nevertheless true
that not a few fanners prefer to put it
in whole. In the latter case it will be
unnecessary to buy or hire a cutter and
power to run it, and this item of expense
may be deferred. Second One acre of
corn will yield more and better feed
when put in silo than two acres of
meadow or three acres of pasture.
Third Good, sweet silage, in quantities
from forty to sixty pounds per day, may
be fed to any healthy cow without in
juring her milk for any purpose what
ever. Fourth The poor man, of all
others, ia the one who cannot afford to
do without a silo.
