Some score or so of contributors to i
French sporting journal dined one day
upon the ham and heart ot a lion
killed by Constant Cheret, in Algeria
The flesh of the lion1 was found to bt
particularly firm and close-grained
like that of a horse, but although pro
nounced palatable, it only achieved
what is .ermed a success d'estimc
while the heart, skilfully prepared
with truffles, was unanimously votet

A ,TUVExILE CoRN EXPIRIUMN'r.
fYhen I was a boy cii my father's
'arm, I once undertook a little experi
nent on my own account, and carried
t through secretly, fof' the putrpose of
mnjoyit; the surprise it might create.
Vith this view, as soon as father got
brough plant!ng his corn, I. selected
mnd marked oil, unknown to him, a
mall space near the centre of the field.
L'o each stalk of the corn planted in
his spacuj I gave special attention, for
he purpose of finding out how Imuch
achi grain planted could be made to
>roduce by giving it extra manure and
ixtra hoeing. When the corn was
Zathered, the dilYerence between my
>et stalks and the rest of the field at
,raeted my father's attention, and I
-emnember how puzzled lie was lin try
ng to account for it. When, at lengtb,
d disclose([ the secrct, he inquired how
nuch extra work and manure I had ap
)lied. ''ell me this exactly, said he, and
can tell the value of the experiment.
told him I had simply doubled what
to had given to the rest of the field.
fter examining the result and con
taring it with the rest of the fleld, lie
ound that his yield was at the rate of
orty-four bushels to the acre, and
nine at the rate ot' sixty-flive bushels.
Now, said he, if extra culture and extra
nanure are good for single stalks, it
nust be good for the whole crop. So
lie next year lie adopted my plan for
he whole crop, and found that the gain
vas even larger by several bushels than
n1 my experiment; and he also found
hat the cost of each bushel was re
luced about six cents. This little ex
ierImenit ot' my early life has been
ince conflind by large experience 1as
veil as by observation, and 1 am led to
)elleve that there Is, not only in corn,
jut In most of our crops, a greater
>ower of (eve lopnelnt uinder experi
nent than we are at present aware of.

Lme, and the females, whIch are wing

1i11y consist In placing some barrier
around the trink which the insects can
lot pass. Some hiave 'gutters of oil,
)tlers simooth surfaces which they can
lot travel. Tle simplest, and as ef
'eetive as any, is stout paper, smeared
vith tar or printer's ink. ]lowing

1?aina to Order.-General R 1uggle 's pl1an
foi' making i'ain to order by exploding
dhynamite in balloons recalls the scheme
pr'oposedl by Professor Esp)y, some years5
ago, for producing rain over the whole
conuntiry at once. It is a well-known
fact that large conflagrations tend to
cause rain by sending warm, m->hst air
into the tipper regions of' the atmos
p)her'e, where the vapor' condenises and
descends again in showers. As rain
stoi'ims in the Unilted States have a geni
eral motion to the eastward, Pr'of'essor
Espy suggested thatonice a week, in the
suimm'r ime, a line of fires, extending
500 or 000 m-les in it north and south di
i'ection, shiotuld be started In tihe far
WVest. T'his, he calculated, would pro.
duco a belt of rain that would swecep
sideways across-the countzy, iasting
only t wo or three hours in any one place,
and( finally passing the Atlantic sea
board to carry gratefulshowvers and1 Wel
come breezes to becalmed and sun-war
1)0d vessels many miles out at sea. The
trouble wvith these schemes foi' in1prov..
lng uipon nature is, that the rain bureau
would never he able to satisfy all the
people0 to be rained on. Ono Jarmer
might want a shiower to revive lise
parebinug crops, another wouldl wish
fair weather in order to harvest his hay.
Rain storms are unruly, and a good
smetrt shower, started for1 the h,eneflt
of New Jersey agriculture, might eas
ily escap)e .across the North River and
pounce upon the unsuspecting shop pars
and pedestrians in Broadway. 'Upon
the whole, it would seem to be wiser to
