Under proper conditions of soil
and moisturo large crops of ai
aro raised and tho plant
takes a very rotcntive hold in tho
soil. Pigs relish tho roots and
they mako a wholesome food that
is entirely digestible. It is generally
conceded by chemists that
roots aio entirely digestible
Coburn in his "Swino Husbandly,"
gives tho experience of A. C.
Williams, of Vinton,, Iowa, in feeding
artichokes to swine. Ho says:
Tho keep of my hogs in warm
weather. is blue crass, clover and
Brazilian artichokes. Eoityhcad of
hogs and their pigs may bo kept
without other food on an acre of
artichokes from tho time frost is
out of tho ground until tho 1st of
Juno, and horn boptembcr or
obcr until the ground is again
frozen. To grow them tho ground
should bo rich, plowed eight or ten
inches deep, tho tubers cut tho
samo as seed potatoes, and planted
from early spring to Juno 10, 10
to 15 inches apart, with six bushel
of seed to tho acre. They can also
bo planted in the fall, from October
15 to November 15, but the tubers
should not bo cut, and tho ground
should bo thoroughly rolled alter
Much has been said of late of cat
tie and horses and other stock mysteriously
dying, and the causo has
been traced to tho smut on corn or
a similar fungus on other grain or
grass fed to them. Tho common
smut of grain crops is a minuto
plant consisting of white threads
like those of nnldow, which grow
in plants and generally concentrate
in the seed heads. That of corn
appears in every part of the plant,
even in tho roots, but mostly in
the seed heads. Tho seed ot tho
smut fungus t onsists of extremely
minute black or brown balls, callad
spores, and when this smut dries it
is carried off by tho winds and
snred far and wide. But some of
it lodges in a tuft of minuto hairs
at tho end of tho seeds of tho grain,
and thus when tho giain is sown
tho smut is sown with it, and in
this way is most effectively spread
among tho new crop.
To prevent this the seed, whether
wheat, oats or corn, is steeped in a
solution of four ounces of blucstono
(sulphate of copper) in five gallons
of hot water, and this when cold,
is used to steep tho seed in. The
smut spores aio thus killed, and, of
course, tho danger ot now smut is
treneiallv reduced, as only that
floating in tho air will infect the
crops. The seed is kept in the
solution for a fow minutes, then
taken out, and drained and spread
out to dry. It is then sown imme
diately. Or tho wet seed may be
mixed with somo dry,
lime, which is a gieat help, and,
thus dried, may bo sown at once,
either by hand or by a drill.
In tho matter of keeping pork
there aro some items antecedent to
salting that aro woithy of attention.
First in dressing, tho scuif should
bo entirely removed by most
thorough scraping and applications
of hot wator. By this is meant
not only tho dark coloied, external
scurf that readily slips off on a
good scald, leaving a smooth, white,
shining surface; it ts what composes
this that should bo icmoved, otherwise,
when warm weather conies,
it lises to tho top of tho bune,
sours, and imparcs thollavorot'tiie
meat. Two pigs may bo dres&ed
for market with a better appearance
while ono can be properly pi cpared
for salting and keeping tor domes
tic us.-. Tho vessel (barrel or
glazed crock) in which the meat is
to bo packed should bo clean, frco
from any traco of lime or suspicion
of taint from previous use. If
musty, invert over burning sulphui
When tho meat is thoroughly
cold (should never bo frozen) cut
in desired form, rub with compound
described below, pack closely on
edge with rind toward the outside
and weight that it may not rise.
Compound for rubbing tho meat:
Ono fourth pound of black popper,
finely ground, ono fourth pound ol
saltpeter, pulverized; mix with salt,
eight to ten pounds, sufficient for
tho meat; rub thoroughly,
some upon tho bottom of the
vessel and on each layer of meat;
cover the meat with cold water.
Meat thus prepared will keep somo
time, though not through hot wcatli
or. The lean will not harden as if
more salt wero added. If scum
skim and add salt, putting it
on top, thus feeding the brine
whenever it thus indocatcs tho
need. Carefully keep tho meat
covered with brine, leaving none
to noat, auuing water ana salt as
required. Thus treated, tho Berk
shire gives a product that is unexcelled,
writes R. L. Seldcn. If preferred
the brine may bo added
when tho meat is packed by putting
in water all the salt it will
dcsolvo. If packed for market, or
not frequently examined, this is
tho better way, othorwi&otho former
method is prefeiable.
For pickling hams, rub and
pack as abovo and cover with a
picklo of tho follwing pioportions:
Six gallons of water, eight pounds
of salt and four pounds of sugar
Let meat ho thrco or five weeks,
rcmovo and soak 12 hours to equalize
salt, drain and smoke to suit.
Groen hickory wood or cobs are
desirable fuel. Complete smoking
by burning one half pound of sulphur.

WAS JACK THE RIPPER.
THE WHITE CHAPEL FIEND A
Ho Wns Ono of tho Prominent Physicians
of Loudon, and was Mile Whcu
JIo Committed tho Crimes
that Shocked tho Civilized
Dr. Howard, a London physician
of considciablo prominence,
was tho guest of William G. Harrison
at the Bohemian club, in San
Francisco, lecently. Tho Englishman
told a singular story to his
host, and vouched for its correctness
in every particular. It related
to tho mystery of "Jack the
Ripper," which tho physician declared
was no longer a mystery
among tho scientific men of London
nor tho detectives of Scotland
Yard. Ho said that the assassin
was a medical man of high standing
and extensive practice. Ho
v?as married to a beautiful and am-
iablo wife and had a family.
Shortly before the beginning of the
White Chapel murders ho developed
a peculiar, and to his wife an
inexplicable mania an unnatural
pleasure in causing pain. She
grew so alarmed that she became
afraid of him, and locked herself
and children up when sho saw the
mood coming over him. When he
recovered from the paroxysms she
spoko to him about it and ho
laughed at her fears. Then the
Whito Chapel murders filled London
with horror. The suspicions
of tho wife were aroused, and as
ono assassination succeeded anoth
cr sho noticed, with heart-breaking
dread that at the periods when
these murders were supposed to
have been committed her husband
was invariably absent from home
At last tho suspense and fear of
tho wi etched wifo became unbear
able, and sho went to a few of her
husband s medical friends, stated
the case and asked their advice and
assistance They called tho Scot
land Yard forco to assist them, and
by adding ono fact to another tho
chain of evidence pointing to tho
doctor as the author ofthomurders
became complete. Tho physicians
visited tho murderer and told him
thoy wished to consult him about a
remarkable case. They stated his
own in detail, and asked him what
should bo done under tho circum
stances. Ho loplicd that while tho
unmistaKaoic insanity ot tho per-
son who could commit these crimes
would savo him from tho halter, ho
should certainly be confined in
Then thoy told him that ho him
self was tho maniac who had done
these fearful acts, no declared the
impossibility of the accusation, but
confessed that of lato years there
wero gaps in tho twenty-four hours
of which ho positively had no rec
ollection. Ho said that ho had
awakened in his rooms as if from
a stupor, and found blood upon his
boots and stains of blood upon his
hands. Ho also had scratches upon
his face, and his amputating
knives had shown signs of use,
but ho could not recall having as
sisted at an operation. Tho doc
tors then told him that there could
bo no doubt of his identity with
tho White Chapel assassin. Thoy
mauo an exhaustive search ot tho
houso, led by tho accused, found
ample proofs of tho murder, and
tho unhappy man, whoso mind was
then in its normally clear condi
tion, begged to bo removed, from
tho world as a guilty and danger
Tho necessary papers wero made
oat and tho irresponsible murdorcr
was committed to an insane asyl
um. In a month or so ho lost all
semblanco of sanity and is now the
most intractable and dangerous
madman confined in tho asylum.
Not In Favor of Annexation
On April 24th regarding a mo
tion passed by tho New York state
legislature favoring tho politital
union of tho United States and Can
ada, Premier Bowell said: "The
average American has as kindly
feeling towards Canada as we have
towards tho United States. It is
only demagogues and irresponsible
vandals like Mr. O'Grady that
attempt to create ill-feeling between
tho two countries. Every Canadian
knows there is no annexation
sentiment in this coutry, because
we believe wo aio bettor off than
Americans. Wo havo passed
through tho financial crisis better
than thoy. Wo havo a more rcli
ablo banking system than thoy
havo. Wo havo no nogro problems,
and we .have no anarchists or bomb
throwers. Wo havo a responsible
government; they havo not. If tho
Canadians loso confidence in tho
government of which lam the head,
wo can bo put out of power within
a month. Cleveland governs for
four years and cannot bo displaced
except by a process never resorted
to successfully. Besides all this,
wo arc Britishers, and we intend,
I think, to stay so."

If the eating of flesh food be instanced
as a distinction that separates
man from anthropoid's, it can be urged
on the other side that the latter feed
on insects, and when in captivity by dd
means despise flesh food. The first
man, too, was probably a "vegetarian,"
but necessity and the absence of
vegetable food for his auinentirv
species may havo driven him to a fleshvj '
The cooking or roa&ting of meat must

nightly Review. The Australians, too,
too, know nothing of the boiling and
roasting of food until the advent of the

method of friction of two sticks,
or, what is still simpler, they take a
torch along with them on their w

Since the Andamanitcfl have come in

this method of preserving fire
by tho use of matches, which are ory
favorite objects with them. They eat
their food cither raw or roasted, less
frequently boiled, as they have no cooking
utensils. Moreover, netoiding to
the latest accounts from Otto Luders of

among them, and thty withdraw themselves

Their dress consists mainly of loose
trousers, a bright-colored jacket and
a peculiar headdress. The trousers
are baggy, made of a strong material
resembling blue and white bed ticking,
and tied at the ankle. The jacket and
shirt aro bright and conspicuous.
Tho front of tho headdress represents
the half-opened mouth of a

with many cocks' plumes. From under

red material, thrown carelessly back
over the shoulders, the whole being

These little imps are always laughing,
full of fun, ever ready to play
harmless jokes on one another. Some
of their most skillful antics, says
Youth's Companion, will i)c followed
by simply throwing themselves into
ridiculous positions, intended solely to
keep spectators in a good humor.
You are startled to sec them suddenly
stand upon their heads, heels in air,
or bend backward until their saucy
little faces will bo seen inverted between
their knees. Again, they will
walk on their hands, and quite unexpectedly
change from their position,
rolling and tumbling over each other,
jumping, kicking or prancing, and
trying in every way to attract the attention
of the passer-by.
One of them continually beats u
small drum and sings at tho top of his
voice, doing his best to add to the din.
Their entire performance is given in
the hope of earning a few rin a small
