HIPENINO MELONs UNDEROROUND.
As well known, there are many plants
which thrust their seed vessels into
the ground, where the seeds are sub.
sequently matured. Thoi peanut is a
good example of a plant which con-.
atantly exhibits this phevomenonr
Others again develop flowers and seeds
entirely underground, while many
aquatic plants ripen their seeds under
water. The Persians, who are exten
siva cultivators of melons, have the
curious practice of covering this fruit
with earth as a certain stage. Suoh a
method is in vogue among Persians
who live in the neighborhood of T fIls,
in the Caucasus. Only the choicest
and best keeping variety, the true Dut
ma, Is grown. It Is a long smooth kind
which attains a weight of fifteen to
twenty pounds, and will keep till
Christmas. . The deeply tilled ground
is thrown up into beds a foot wide in
spring, and the seeds sown in a drill
along the center. Finally, the plants
are left at a great distance apart, and
irrigation is effected thlough the chan
nels between the beds, so that no water
touches the plants. The fruit sets in
June, and only one or two are left on
each shoot. When the fruit has at
tained the size of a man's 1it the earth
is hollowed out, and the shoot (with
the exception of the tip), vpgether with
its fruit, is buried therem to a depth
of one to one and a half inches, where
it remains until the . fruit Is almost
rile, Considerable practical expert
ence is necessary in order to be able to
determine the exact moment when the
melons sbould be unearthed. When
the'cultivator thinks Chat the time has
arrived, he withdraws the shoot and
its fruit from the ground. This Is
done toward evening, and the fruit is
left on the surface of the ground, at
tached to the shoot; but care is taken
to cut the fruit the next morning be
fore the sun can reach it. It is then in
a cool, dark, dry place, until ready for
COAL VAR --iAery any acids to our
high appreciation of this wondertul
material for various farm men. Dry
lumber coated with it becomes almost
Imperishable, but its most remarkable
effects are up9n green lumber. The
increased value of wood seasoned in a
sheltered place, or coated with, oil has
bong been known. Timber for place
requiring tne greatest strength and dii
rability Is prepared in this way. Eve
ry one knows the worthless character
of poplar dried in the open air; but po
plar seasoned under shelter is valible
wcod. The eflect cf coal tar Is hetier
than housing and mn1y coats of oil; it
excludes air and water, and the wood
becomes like iron. A board of green
cottonwood,well coated, lies as straight
as the best pine, and It is as durable

and around the openbi.gs upon swine

properties and its extreme cheapness
are in its favor. One barrel costing

9 to a limited extent foir a numnber' of

to demonstrate the fact that there is

a coop in the center of the fild, in

To CLEAN EMxINE AND ilifKEVKI
SKNs.-Take a piece of soft flannel,
and well rub the fur with It against
the grain; then rub again with com
mon flour until clean. Shake it well,
and rub again with the flannel till all
the flour Is out of It. I have had a
minever boa for four years; it has
never been cleaned with anything but
flour, and Is not in the least injured
by rubbing. It was a school compan
ion who told me that her aunt (a Rus
sian lady) always cleaned her white
furs with flour, and that they looked
beautiful. It has one advantage-the
lining doos not require to be taken
out. and it only requires a little
trouble. Ermine takes longer than
tninever; the latter is very easily
SODA FOR BuRNs.-All kinds of
burns, including scalds and sunburns,
are almost Immediately relieved by the
application of a solution of soda to the
burnt eurface. It mumt be remembofed
that dry soda will not do unless it is
surrounded with a cloth moist enough
to dissolve It. Tis mtethod of sprin.
kling it on and oovering it with a wet
cloth is often the very best. But It is
suficient to wash the wound repeated
ly with a strong solution. It would
be well to keep a bottle of it always on
hand, made so strong that more or less
settles on the bottem. This is what is
called a saturated solution, and really
such a solution as this is formed when
the dry soea is sprinkled on and cox
ered with 9 moistened cloth.
Foraro SOUFFL.-Six larie, smooth
potatoes, halfa cuptul of boiling milk,
one tablespognful of butter,the whites
of four eggs, salt and pepper to taste.
Wash the potatoes clean, being care
ful not to oreak the skin. Bake forty
live inuttes. Take the potatoes from
the oven, and with a sharp knife cut
thei in two lengthwise. Scoop out
the potato with a spoon, and put It in
a hot bowl. Mash light and line. Add
the seasoning, butter and milk, and
thenl half the whites of the eggs. Fill
the sk'ns with tihe mixture. Cover
with the remaining white of tie egg,
and brown Ia the oven. Great caic
must be taken not to break the skins.

Having had numberless inquiries for
advertising cards from ladies In all
parts of the country who are Interest.
ed In the prevailing fashion of making
"Card Collections," we are having
printed for -them a set of seven beauti
tl cards each in six colors and on a
gold bacLground, in the very highest
degree of art, illiutratingShakspeare's
"Seven Ages of Man," We have spared
no expense In these cards-they are
simply little art gems. Our only aim
has been to publish the finest cards yet
shown. Applications tor them have
come in so rapidly that nearly the
whole edition is engaged before the
receipt by us of the cards from the
artist. We have therefore been obliged
to adopt the.following plan for the dis
tribution of the remainder: No more
of the gilt Shakspeare cards, seven in
the series, will be sant excepting upon
the receipt of a statement from a grocer
that the person applying for the eards
has bought of him on that day at least
seven bars of Dobb.ns' Eecitro Soap,
with price paid for same. All apply
ing In this manner toill receive the lull
set of seven cards gratis by mall. This
will insure us that our friands and pa
trons got their share of these beautiful
designs, although it In no manner re
pays us for the cost of the cards. Your
gr.ocer has the soap or will get it, atd
the purchase by you of seven bars of
it at one tine will secure for you gratis
seven really beautiful cards. The soap
improves with age, and. is an article of
necessity In your house every week.
Therefore you are not asked to buy a
useless article, but oiie that you must
have anyway. Please send us your
aplplication at ojiee, and tell your lady
friends making "Card Collections," to
do the same. (rocers do not have the
cards to deliver. Buy the soap of them,
send us their bill, and tos wlil mail you
the cards free. Yours respe.ffully,

GeNrs--For upward f 20 years I have been
afu cetd with tho Ples. When I first took
themfl they wore blind uad very painful. For
about ten years they continued as blind, thon
commenced blcoding. The hemorrhoids con
tinued to increase until I was losing at every
stool fully a gill of blood, and frequently.
whiio standing at my desk, the blood would
run down into my boots. 1 have had these
hemorrhoids to last for several hours. In the
meantime, lito a drowning man, I was grasp
ing at everything, trying to find relieft.On
0on0 ocasion I had them cauterized, which,
after intense suffering for over a month, ef
fected temporary relief, for a short time only
however. About ten months since, while at
stool, my eye fell oni an adverlisenmem, headed
in large letters, "Piles, send 2 cent stamp and
get circular." I d d so, and received a few
"Plain Blunt Facts'' in reply, after reading
which, I ooloud d it was such plain common

did so, and Iho result was, that after a few
days use, the bih eding ceasedi and I have not
sulfered a moment's pain sin1co. It is said
that "a fellow-fooeling makes one wondrous
kind." So, knowing quite a number of friends
who were sutfferiing hike myself, I distributed
quite a lnumber oif them, and fiom every one
received a favorabule report. I would not be
