IN THE (MAPPArAL
A VEGETAL WONDrRLAND DY
THE 1RIO GRANDE R.'WER.
Cacti of Every Deseription-Vaina
ble Uses Found for These Mon
trosities of Plant Life-Some
Contain a Water SuppY.
C OVERN lENT expedition
has just returned from the
exploration of a vegetal won
*derland. It is a region to
tally unlike any other part of the
United States-the home of those mon
stros,t-es of plant life called cacti. The
country is known as the "desert of the
chapparal," its extent being from the
Nueces River of Texas to the north
front of the eastern Sierra Madres of
Mexico, and from the mouth of the
Pecos on both sides of the Rio Grande
nearly to the Gulf. It has been under
txamination by the geological survey
for the purpose of finding water, and
many suitable localities for artesian
wells have been discovered.
"The region is unique," said Mr.
Robert 1. Hill of the expeditioa. "It
is a wide, low-lying plain, through
which meanders in a sinuous course
the muddy Rio Grande. The country
is covered with a dusty desert soil, on
which grows the remarkable vegeta
tion known as 'chapparal.' This vege
tation embraces many species of plants
that are known cisewhere in the world,
and each one of them is armed with a
kind of thorn appropriate for its pro
tection. Hero those vegetal freaks,
the cacti, assume an astonishing var
iety of strange forms, every one of
them bristling with defensive weapons,
that run all the way from needles up
to the size of bayonets. The cactus,
you know, is a new type of plant on
the face of the earth. There is reason
to believe that it did not exist an
ciently at all-anciently, that is to say,
from the geological point of view.
The tendency to a gradual drying up
of the land surfaces of the globe hav
ing brought about desert conditions in
places, certain plants have adopted
modes of growth suitable for the stor
ing of water. At the same time their
leaves have become modified into
thorns, for their 1,:otection against
animals. Though some of them look
as if scarcely alive, they are found to
be juicy enough when cut into, and
many of them are useful to man.
"The chapparal, in a general way,
may be described as a dense shrubby
vegetation, growing just about high
enough to obstruct the view of a man
on horseback. It mio'ht be said to be
made up of a series of thorny layers,
which combined render travel through
it extremely arduous and even pain
ful. Under foot, close to the ground,
are innumerable cacti of the 'pincush
ion' and 'Turk's head' species. They
bristle with keen and sharp thorns,
which easily penetrate the uppers of
ones shoes. It you are thirsty, how
ever, you have only to batter in the
crown of on~e of the Turk's heads, and
inside of it you will find a delicious
draught of water cool and fresh.
"Just above the pincushions, and
high enough to stick into the calves
of the legs, come the needle-like
points of the 'Spanish dagger' or
'ixtie.' This, too, has its usefulness,
being the great fiber-producing plant
of Mexico. It is ai small species of
aloe, its thick blade-like leaves termi
nating in curved needles. Higher
again, so as to reach any point be
tween the knee and shoulder of the
traveler, ;s the famous 'nopal' Thi.
huge variety of prickly pear is the
National plant of Mexico, figuring in
the coat of arms of that country. The
design on one side of the Mexican sil
ver dollar represents an eagle with a
snake in its break rising out of a "no
pal' bush. The fruit of tnis plaut is
pear-shaped and nearly as big as a
Bartlett pear, having a deep cochi
neal color. In fact, it was from this
kind of cactus that the insects furnish
ing the cochineal of commerce used to
be obtained, before that product w,i

will quickly find himself in a high
fever, which, though not insting, is
unpleasant. The flat leaves are un
covered with long and keen needl1es,
while at the~ base of each leaf is a
group of smaller and almost invisible
needles. The latter, however, inflict
wounds which are to be felt for days.
Higher yet, and above the shoulder
reaches the 'Spanish bayonet,' a kind
of yucca. Standing in a flower pot in
a garden, this plant is a handsome and
innocent ornament, but in the chap

"Above, forming a dense mat over
the head of the traveler, are the
thorny shrubs of many species-chief
ly the mesquite and its allies, such as
the 'huishache,' the 'guaxillo' and the
'cat's claw.' Beneath the beautiful
and finely cut leaves of these shrubs
are innumerable thorns. The 'gaux
illo' is a sensitive plant. If you touch
oue of its leaves gently it will shrink
and shrive-l up for the moment. If
you attempt to handle the plant

known as 'dexicans, have use for
every one of these strange plants of
the chamaral. From different sr.,- S
they obtain soap. hair tonic, tooth

the mesquite beans are made into
breaa. Horses are exceedingly fond
of these beans. and for them will
abanden tho choicest oats at any
time. The mesquite leaves are masti
cated as an antidote for fever. It is
said that a traveler can live in that
country without water for a consider
able time by chewing the pulp of the
thick leaves of the 'nopal.' The latter
is utilized for food as cattle, and a
baby food made from the juicy pulp
has recently been placed on the mar
"Many of the plants of the chappa
ral possess medicinal and economical
values unrecognized up to date. Al
though in a sense a 'desert,' the term
as applied to this region is a mis
nomer, for concealed among the
thorny vegetation are many bunches
of nutritious grasses, while nearly all
of the shrubs produce rich crops of
beans, on which cattle, goats and
sheep thrive marvelously. The vege
tation has a peculiar habit of being
always in fruit-a part of it, that is to
say. The fruiting is not controlled by
the seasons, but by rainfall. One of
ten sees a tree bearing flowers and
ripe fruit at the same time, whether it
be in June or December. The blos
soms yield the finest quality of honey,
and stock raisers in the region have
gone largely into the business of bee
keeping. The wood of the mesquite
tree has a hard aad close grain, and is
valuable for paving. The streets of
San Antonio are paved with blocks of
this wood. I forgot to say that the
natives make a thick paste from the
'nopal,' which they apply all over the

A New Diet 1or Cats and Dogs.
One of the strangest and most profit
able trades of London is the wholesale
and retail business of horaemeat for
cat and dog food. In barrows, pony
traps and hand carts the hawkers of
horseflesh cry their wares throughoat
the city and find a ready and constant
sale for them. There is hardly a
householder that fails to buy of the
"cat's meat man."
Actually 23,000 horses, played out,
maimed and aged, aro killed and cut
un in the English metropolis every
year for this purpose. All day long
and all night long the slaying of these
beasts goes on, and the three or four
establishments that cater to the trade
continually have their hands full.
Each horse means, on an average, 273
pounds of meat, and as 26,000 horses
a year mean 500 horses a week, it fol
lows that the cats and dogs of London
whose masters and mistresses patron
ize the "horse food" man manage to
dinpose of over ten tons a day. The
hawkers sell this meat ini half-penny
weights, a pound cutting up into six
of these portions, each being piroper
ly skewered. An interesting fact in
relation to the skewers is that hsif a
ton of them are used each day, or 12
tens of dead wood a year. The teni
tons a day of dead hiorso are cut up
into1:34,400 meals. The maguita lo
of the trade can be seen from the fact
that it keeps constantly employol

If one-fourth of the oats grown in
the United States were mowed just as
the grain is in full milk, and before
the straw became vitreous, it would be
better for the farmer as well as the
cattle. Horses prefer it to any kind
of hay or grain, and eat the whole
substance; but if we cut it after the
straw is ripe it is totally lost. Cows
led with one meal a day of this fodder
thrive admirably. The farmer would
have a substitute in part for hay when
the crop is short.-New York Inde
ROOSTING SEED FOR TURKEYS.
The turkey usually seeks a high
roosting place as a matter of protec
tion from enemies, but the jumping
from the tree limbs often cause lame
ness. They are also exposed in win
ter, which causes roup. A cheap shed,
open on one side, with a high roost,
will protect them from winds, and at
the same time give them all the advan
tages of being in the open air. Such
a shed will cost but little, but care
must be taken that no holes or cracks

are in the walls, as small currents of
air are more injurious than exposures
outside. The walls may be lined with
tough paper of some kind, which may
be tacked on. By this arrangement
more turkeys can be raised, and they
will be less liable to disease. They
can be easily taught to go under the
shed by placing wire mesh along the
front and confining them therein for
a few days. The house should face
the south. -Farm and Fireside.
EEBOSENE FOR LICE.
Here is the way our contributor, H.
B. Geer, uses kerosene to kil[ lice or
to keep them from little chicks: First,
before setting a hen, we clean out the
nest box and sprinkle the bottom and
sides of it inside with kerosene oil.
Then we put in fresh strav and the
eggs, and so set the hen. But we put
no kerosene on the straw about the
eggs, and none on the hen.
When the chickens are first hatched
we take the coop and sprinkle it with
kerosene just as we did the nest box.
Then we put some dry dust in the bot
tom of it. We take the hen and rub
her shanks with a soft rag saturated
with the kerosene oil. We also rub
her feathers under the neck-hackle,
about the roots of the tail, and just a
little bit lightly underneath the wings,
with the rag filled with the odor of the
oil, but not heavily saturated or drip
ping. We put no kerosene and no
lard or oil of any kind directly on the
little chickens. In fact, we have never
greased or ciled the heads of a dozen
young chickens in all the days of our
The sprinkling of the interior of
the coop with the kerosene once a
week thereafter will keep the brood
free of lice. The same precaution
will protect the chickens after they
re weaned, so long as they roost in
There is no question about kerosene
being the best remedy for lice and
mites. and in all our experience with
it we have never lost any chickensi

Do YOUR COWS PAY THEIR BOARD?
With the price of feed at figures
seldom reached, it is fitting that the
farmer should inquire of himself 11
his cows are paying for their board,
writes John S. Shawver. Through
observation, experience and practical I
tests, with the aid of a Babcock milk I
test, I am led to believe that fully
one-third of the cows in an average
community will not pay for thxeir care
and feed in an average year, and that
in this year of short crops, such as is
generally througho'ut the State ofl
Ohio, it is quite probable that two
thirds of the cows now on the farms
of the State will not pay their way.
It is important, therefore, that the
poor cows be culled out as soon as
possible, ar.d the easiest way this can
be done is to put them to a strict test.
You might churn ei:eh cow's milk sep
arately and thus find her value ; but
it is much easier to weigh the milk of
each cow, take samples of the same
and have it tested on a Babcock ma
chine. Where a number of cows are
kept, it would pay the farmer to pur
chase a machine of his own, but where
he does not care to do this let him
take samples to some one who has a
machine and have their value ascer
Unless a cow tests four p)er cent. or
more she must give a very large flow
of milk, or she is unprofitable ; yet 1
have not tested any herd excepting
my own which has not resulted in
finding one or more below 3.2, and in
several instances a s low a.s 2.
Let us get rid of the poor cows be
fore feeding them another winter on
high-priced feed. Do not ask the
good cows to pay for their own feed,
the feed of the poor ones, and then
put a little profit in your pockets be
eies J3etter to seonre more profi;
from fewer cows on less feed by send
ing the poor ones to the butcher's
block. But remember one thing,
however, and that is, when you ha-1e
found out your poor cows do not at
tempt to sell them to your neighbori
as good butter cows. In buying a
cow, test both the quantity and qual.
ity of her milk before making the pur
ebase,-Farm and Fireside.

Where Things Will Keep.
In the polar regions seal oil is
buried in the ground in bags of skin.
Meat is heaped upon platforms built
among trees. which are peeled of bark
in order to keep bears from climbing
up them. Little sticks with sharp
points upward are buried in the ice to
distract the attention of the bears
from the provisions overhead. An
other kind of storehouse is in the
shape of a strong pen, the main sup
ports of which are standing trees,with
brush and logs piled on top to keep
out wild animals.
During the salmon catching season
in arctie Alaska the heads of the fish
are cut off and put into a hole in the
ground. When they are half pntre
fled they are dug up and eaten, being
esteemed a great delicacy. -Pearson's
