WoriDERFUL BEVELATIONS (IF Tilt
M I OWiCOPE,
The, scioutillo world has been groatl3
startled and agitpted of late by the discovery
with the mio-oscope of the most dreadful
enemy of mankin:1 in the form of myriads of
little death-denling parasites. The air we
breathe and live in is charged with these
deadly little growths in propqrtion as it
is infefol from various noxious sourcos.
H1avin by recent experimentg and research
been ahown to be the most fruitful cause
of disease known, and the welfare and
health of ovory individual doponding so
largely on the freedom from their destruc
tive ravagos, It is but natural that the re
ports of recent investigators in this field of
scientific inquiry should be widely road, and
that every plaso of thieso astounding discov
eries should ho subject to universal discuss
ion. At first re .-ivt d with some suspicion
they have at length bon thoroughly proven,
and are now receiving the unqualified in
dorsoinot of the loading scientific men
throuhout the world. But little else is
talkoiTof in the schools and clubs of scienco,
and the medical and scientific journals are
crowded with the testimony that is being
added corroborative of the value of the mar
volous discovery vhieh is pronounced the
greatest advanco in medical scienco of mod
To L. PAsmun, the eminent French
scientist, who by his learned invesigations
has savo:1 to France so many millions of dol
lars, is probably duo the honor of first point
lng out tho terrible power of those gorns.
In recognition of his great. service the govern
ment has recently voted him from the public
treasury $10,000 with which to continue his
experiients. he has described several va
rioties of the to parasites, some comparatively
harmless, others extremely dangerous. Orb
formI ho provod by a sorio: of vaccinations
and other conclusivo experiments was the
causo.of death of mnity thousands of ani
mals and herds of cattle; another the activo
agent in the death of fowls by cholera. Act
ing u-on the knovledgo ho had gained of
the nature of these gers, he pointed out a
means of rei(ef that speedily provented a
spread of the disouses and ended their dovas

THRRz are rpany women, at least two
in every villa6- 1ome of whode moments
are made buid4ilsome on account of
having in sitting-room, behind
the coal stove a lopg shelf of wood.
This is usually fainted white, to matoh
other wood-work in the room, and on
this white-painted surface the soft, gray
dust settles all tie time. There is no
vigilance short 'of the eternal which
serves to keep: It free. A young Nwife
tried this Plan,,and it is so- nearly satis
factory that she tells it for the benefit
of others: Make a lambrequin for the
shelf; it ma he of aida canvas or of
Maorame. it need not be a deep lam
brequin; from tea inches to fifteen will
ftswer. Then ,cover the shelf with
crash and attach the lambrequin to it.
The dust may settle there, but if given
one careful brushing an the morning
you will not be disheartened by seeing
it for the rest of the day. The lambre
broquiv in the' case mentioned was
made of Macram6. and was crocheted;
three spaces were left through which
scarlet ribbons were run; the edge was
finihhed with a deep, largo scallop.
The ribbons were put in lengthwise.
If one choose to do so, the ribbons
could Pe put in the other way and the
ends could be left a little longer than
the lambrequin, and, after being turned
back in points, little tassels of crewel
could be put on, This -is a pretty de.
sign for a corner bracket.
TREATMENT OF DIPHTUEREIc SonS
TIMOAT.-Every now and then we meel
an epidemic of a form of sore throal
which, In many particulars, resemblek
diptheria. The onset is sudden. TIh
disease is ushered in by chilliness ol
actual shivering, followed by fever, los
of appetite, headache and pain in the
throat, aggravated by swallowing. On
examination, the tonsils, the arch o
the fauces, and in many cases the uvula,
are red and swollen, and in some casef
albumen is found in the urine. Th<
temperature may reach 105, while th<
pulse is much accelerated. It is dis,
tinctly infectious, for wives become af
fected subsequent to their husbands
and in some familics all the memberk
are attacked. Such an opedemio hat
recently appeared in Edinburg, and Dr.
Allan Jamieson, who makes a report oJ
it in the Edinburg Medical Journal foi
Decembor, has found the most marked
benefit to result from the internal ad.

J, i. JOLY gave to the Montreal Hor
tioultural Booiety directions for planting
blaock walnuts, of which the following
is the substance: Avoid traniplanting
the trees if practiceable, by planting
tbo nuts where the trees are to remain.
The rows should be four feet apart each
way. At this near distance the trees
will grow up without lateral branches
(which are apt to be torn off by snow or
wind). and they may be thinned as their
growth requires. The nuts should be
sunk about two inches in the ground.
The rows should be perfectly straight,
st N%ith a line and marked from place
with stakes. so as to show accurately
the young plants the first year in culti
voting. The ground must be thoroughly
prepared beforehand, and'the richer the
more rapid the growth. Always sow in
the fall if practicable. If the nuts are
lott till spring out of the ground they
become dry and will not grow. We have
found no difficulty in transplanting the
young trees at five or six feet high, and
have measured a number sot in streets
more than 20 years ago which are now
about 14 or 15 inches in diametor,grow
ing in grass and near flagging.
HERBEnT OsnoRN, Of the Iowa Agri
onitural Uollege, recommends as reme
dies for the scurvy bark louse and the
oyster shell lonse, kerosene and soap,
The kerosene may be used pure where
it can be done with safety, but ordmar
ily it must be diluted with water. This
may be accomplished by forming an
emulsion of koroseno and milk(skimmed
milk answers well), and then diluting
with about an equal quantity of water,
or by shaking up a mixture of milk,
kerosene and water in equal parts, and
then adding more water, taking care not
to add so much as to cause the mixture
to separate. Sprinkle or spray it upon
the infested twigs and branches. Soap
is an excellent remedy, Make a solu
tion of whale oil soap, one-iourth of a
pound of soap to a gallon of water, and
apply to the infected paitts of the tree.
repeating the application alter a few
days, Lyo is said to have been used
with goo( success, but is considered
unequal to soap.
PROPEssOU SHELTON, of the Kansas
State Agricultural College, gives his
views concerning the continued culture
of broom-corn on the fertility of the soil
in the college paper, the Industrialist.
He says: "Ultimately, the effects of
such crops as broom corn, hemp, flax,
and perhaps castor beans, which furn
181 no stock food, or but very httle,will
be seriously felt in Kansas in the loss
of fertility sustained by thoso lands
upon which these are cultivated. The
fiot that broom-corn is a hoed or culti
vated crop makes it much less danger
onts than is flax, which receives no cul
tivation during the period of its growth.
Tie genoral rule for every farmor who
has a higher aim than to scourge his
lands and then sock nower ones is to
grow no crol) upon a considorablo scale
that cannot be used wholly or in good
part as stock feed. This has beon the
rulo of really successful farmers the
worl over, and at a near day will be
the rule in Kansas also."
