VNow look here, sir I I want no more of this. You answer the questions I ask you or go home. What do you make on this machine?"

Stubbs is really not very absent minded, but when he is ridinp on a street car he makes it a point not to look at the conductor. It often saves car fare, for there is something about Stubfcs that makes him lucky enough to be overlooked two cases in ten when he beards a loaded car. One morning he was absorbed in his paper, and when he felt a touch on his arm he mechanically passed out his nickpl and went on with his reading. Later the conductor stood beside him 1 1 i 17' M received no nttenticn. Stubbs had paid his fare. Then the abominable nuisance of a conductor seized him by the shoul der and held out his hand, saying htern ly, "Fare, please." "I paid you before." said Stubbs as affably as he could. ".No, you did not. Come, pass out car fare." "Alan, I paid my fare when you were around before. " And Stubbs thoughtf or an adjective he might -use when there were ladies about. "You you infer nal idiot, you are drunk or asleep, for when you touched me on the arm I passed out a nickel, and you must have taken it, for it was the only one I had," fumbling in his change pocket. With a rrd face the conductor rang the bell to stop the car, roaring, "You will have to pay your fare cr get off the car, " in a tone that startled every one. "I did not get your nickel, and you knowTt,k At that minute the man who had nudged Stubbs to move over in the seat he badJcccnpied with him dropped off the car and walked the other block to his office. The nest time Stubbs rode in a crowded car he gently touched the arm of 'an acquaintance and got even for the 5 cents he had lost and for the chagrin .ife ad suffered. Chicago News. Keeping Cabbage. XUC U1U iiiilU Ul UULj v jfuuuB cabbage in trenches during winter or for winter use has become obsolete, and a more simple and easy plan has been adopted. American Gardening says: "Where cabbage is grown on a large scale for shipping purposes the best plan is to lift the cabbage and stack them two tiers deep and as closely as they can be placed in an orchard, or wood if convenient, and cover with leaves to th rienth of two or three inches, the leaves to be kept in place by a slight covering of earth.

HasMns of South Carolina during a re cent visit to Washington. "Tt struct them hard, and the fever raged with great virulence, particular ly in Charleston, for quite a period. It is in order, however, to state that there has been a great abatement of the mal ady so far as the negro element of our town i3 concerned. The man who would be rash enough to say 'Klondike to a lot of colored Charleston ians would be in imminent danger of being ripped open with a razor. "A week or so ago there appeared in Charleston one of the glibest talking darkies that ever hit the old city. He fanned the rising excitement about the goldfields of Alaska with cunning art, and he held forth about the wealth to be gathered just for the mere going aft er it till he had his audiences well nigh crazy. At the proper time he sprung his scheme, which was nothing more or less than the organization of Klondike clubs far the sole and exclu sive benefit of the colored race. The ne groes had just as much right to the gold that lay round loose up there as any body, and if they didn't avail them selves of the glorious opportunity to be come rich they were the biggest fools on earth. All they had to do was to join the clubs and get an interest in the profits that would accrue. The more money each individual contributed the more would be his share of the pro ceeds, and the promoter advised every body to invest every dollar that could be raised. "Well, those people fairly tumbled over each other in subscribing to the Klondike enterprise. The sleek promot er was in no hurry, but after several days of fat collections he concluded he had worked his Charleston compatriots sufficiently and decamped for fresh pastures. It is safe to say that his col ored carcas wouldn't be worth a cop per if ever he shows up in that commu nity again. It was a great bunko game, but it can't be worked twice in the same town.

They can live when the thermometer is at 60 degrees below zero with no other heat than that given fay a Eingle lamp, re-enforced by that of their own bodies. The lamp is lighted and set in the middle of a hut so low that no one can stand upright in it. Around the side of the hut is a shelf, generally made of frozen Enow, and covered thickly with furs. On this shelf the Indians lie in their sleeping bags, crowded together as closely as they can be packed. The entrance to the hut is through a sort of a tunnel so constructed that the outer air will be entirely excluded. The hut is thus almost wholly without ventila tion, and when the lamp is lighted its heat, with that of perhaps a dozen hu man bodies, makes it possible for any one to live through the winter in the hut, provided he can stand the unspeak able foulness of its atmosphere- Mil waukee Wisconsin. CATS LOSE A FRIEND. The Death of 3Iiss 3Iayhew KncL-5 a Life DeToted to the Welfare of Feline. Lonely cats, deserted by their owners or lured from their homes by heartless boys, have lost a good friend in Miss Annie Mayhew, who died a short time ago iu England. This woman was the founder of a cats' home, and her whole time and energies were devoted to car ing for deserted and stray pussies, on whose behalf fche was constantly ap pealing to the kindly hearted. Every summer she issued an appeal through the press to persons leaving town, beg ging them not to forget pcor puss, leav ing it to starve in their absence.

HARVESTING POTATOES. -Harrestinjr Xachiaes a Sbccms Bushel Boxes For Handling Potatoes. It appears to have been clearly demon strated that the better class of potato harvesting machines can be relied upon to dig and separate the potatoes from the soil as well as could have been done by hand and at the same time leave the ground in good condition for future use. These machines raise the entire row, elevating it and separating the potatoes from the soil, and deposit them in the rear upon the surface of the ground ready to he carted off. An Ohio correspondent of Prairie Farmer, who, by the way, favors bushel boxes to handle the tubers in the field, writes as follows concern ing the sorting of potatoes: We now use a sorter which is a prac tical and very simple machine. The po tatoes are shoveled into one end, and the culls drop through below and the sorted potatoes go into a basket at the rear of the sorter. Before we used this machine we usually sorted off the scoop Ehovel, on a bench which we will de scribe. We never could humble our selves, as some people do, by getting down on a floor cr the ground on our knees before a pile of potatoes. We therefore made a bench so we could Etand upright while sorting. Always handle potatoes with the scoop if possi ble after once picked up. For a sorting bench take three boards wide enough so that they will stand on end without tipping over. Cut two of the boards, say, 3 feet long and the other about 18 inches long. Nail one of the long boards on to the short one at right angles. This will make a support far one end of the bench and be about 18 inches high. Take the other long board and nail it at right angles on the other end of the long board 1 8 inches from 1 the end, so that your bench is IS inches high. The board comes up above the bench 18 inches at one end, makes a place on which to rest the scoop handle, while the end of the scoop rests on the edge of the box or basket sitting on the bench. The sorting can be done then off the shovel with both hands free. With a little practice the sorting can be done speedily and with much less discomfort than by getting down on all fours as so many da When possible, potatoes should bo sorted before they are Etoxed perma nently for the winter. Before we build our potato house we usually hauled them to the barn floor from the field, and the sorting was done there. Now we take them directly to the potato house and store them in the sorting room, where they can lie until cold weather if necessary, but they are sort ed before they go into permanent stor age. Stacking Grain. No other work appears to be so poorly done on the farm as stacking. In a dis cussion on this subject in the Iowa Homestead all of the writers agree that the middle of the stack should be kept fuli, some keeping very full, while oth ers only moderately so. The inside courses should be laid solid and the sheaves close together, while the out Eide course is laid lecsely and never trodden upon. The following points of importance are gleaned from these let ters: Sous should be taught how to stack early in life; shocking should be well done before stacking; a good foundation is necessary; plow the ground where the stack is to stand for a good stack bottom; if the stackyard is not level the stack should be leveled as near the ground as possible by running an extra course or two to make it level; theshat terings should never he putin the stack; they had better spoil in a stack by them selves than to be the cause of a whole stack spoiling; stacks should be seven or eight feet apart; begin a stack like a shock; do not put the beads out, and begin each course in a new place. Some adovcate stacking with a fork, which is immaterial if the stack is well built. One writer advocates stacking around a pole set solidly in the ground. He says he is not bothered with slipping or spoiled stacks and does not care how it looks so i; saves the grain. Corn Growing States. According to figures presented by the department of agriculture in 1896 every state in the Union raised enough com to report it except Nevada, Idaho and Arizona. Iowa leads the list of corn growers with 321,719,541 bushels on 8,249,219 acres; Kansas, with a greater acreage, 8,847,643 acres, and the great est of any state, produced 247,734,004 busbels, and is fourth on the list ; Neb raska, with 29S,590,63S busbels on 7,962,657 acres, coming second, and Illinois, with 384.572.7G4 bushels on 7,026,486 acres, coming third. Montana reports the smallest yield, 34,606 bush els on 1,331 acres; Florida, where grow the orange and the pineapple, has 480, 694 acres to corn, raising 4,860,940 bushels. New York is pretty well down in the list with 526,257 acres producing 17,892,738 bushels, valued at $6,799, 240. Connecticut has 46,658 acres to 1,773,004 bushels; New Jersey has ; 282,582 acres to 9,325,338 bushels; Pennsylvania has 1,311,870 acres to 52,475,000 bushels, and "Rhode Island has the temerity to report that she has enough territory to put 8.S4S acres of it to com, raising thereon 300,832 bushels. Sleasarins the Height of Trees. It is.a very simple matter to get the height of a tree when the sun is shining.

Hew Chicago Ticket Speculators Get the Best ef Eiilroad Csspaaies I"Ive Dol lars for a Bide to Sew Tort era the Xo Train. Eailroad officials have until recently had no knowledge of the fact that pas senger fares from Chicago to New York were being quoted daily for fo per pas senger and that that figure was being made over the strong line?. But such, nevertheless, is a fact, and this tale is told to show the railroad people that with all of their shrewd ness somebody has gone them one bet ter and not only hoodwinked them, but has cut into the revenue of the roads regardless of the big associations cigsu ized and maintained to prevent jest such tricks. Any one who wants to get to New York while the present 5 rate is be ing quoted would be foolish to go to a city passenger office and pay out f 20 for the privilege, especially as alcng with the $5 rate gees a car, only one passenger being allowed to a car on this route. While the trains on which this cheap rate is available do not leave from the union depots, and it is neces sary for passengers to embark at the Union stockyards, that little inconven ience is offset by the saving of $15. The new way of getting to New York for a $5 bill is probably not known to a dozen railroad officials in Chicago. It can properly be termed "the hog route, " as the passengers who go by it travel with hogs and are waybilled as hogs. Somewhere about the yards is a man who acts as general passenger agent of "the hog route." One day recently a broken down, dis sipated young fellow, who not more than two years ago held a good position in a railroad office in Chicago, got a yearning for his heme "down east." He had not a cent, and none of his old friends would fix him cut with trans portation. Finally, in some manner, he got knowledge of "the heg route" and, succeeding in getting an old chum to once more lend him a five, he moved off to the yards, and it was his departure by this route that furnished the ma terial for this tale. Arriving at the stockyards and hunt ing up -the man who is making money off this scheme, he tcck the fellow to a train of hegs about to pull out for the east, opened the door of one of the cars, after getting possession of the man's $5, told him to get in and then locked him in with the rest of the hogs. Not much ceremony attendsihe send ing of passengers by this route, each passenger being given a long black whip to keep the other hegs off and the waybilling of the traveler as a heg, shipped from Chicago to New York in such and such a car, being the only at tention shown. Strange as this tale may seem about men being shipped cut cf the stock yards as bogs, with hecs, and left to live with them far days until they ar rive at destination, such a practice actu ally exists, and some man or a clique cf cheap scalpers are said to be deriving a good revenue from it. By a man who knows it is stated that several passengers leave Chicago in this manner daily. Possibly seme of them may think that for the accommodations furnished the rate cf $5 to New York is somewhat excessive. Some day, like ly, the employees of some New York slaughter house, in their haste to butcher e newly arrived carload of hogs, will cut up a passenger traveling by this route, and then it will becamo unpopular. Chicago Inter Ocean. Foncht With Cocoacnts. A recent three cornered fight in a St. Louis grocery store had some peculiar features. The participants were J. Johnson, J. P. Blake and Fred Risse. The men fought hand to band for a few seconds, overturning boxes and barrels and pummeling each other. Blake finally cut Risse in the arm, and Risse retreated to a pile of cocoanuts. where he established his defense. He began a fusillade cf cocoanuts, which proved too much for his antagonists. Blake dodged all the nuts that came his waj, but Johnson was not so successful. Several of the cocoanuts landed on his head. One of them inflicted a scalp wound which required six stitches. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Bats Electrocuted. An electrical rattrap is said to have captured 123 rats in one night in a New York restaniant.

The rats outside hear expressions of en joyment of his lunch and hastes to join him. She Was Stolen Thrice. At Ball's Creek-camp meeting recent ly a young man named Watts stole a young woman named Scronce and mar ried her near the camp ground. The girl's father then stole her from her husband. Later the husband again stole her from the old man. The latter filled up on blockade liquor and went in search of them. He found them, but he could not get the girl back. Lincoln (N. C.)

The old method of planting celery in trenches and blanching the stalks by piling soil around tiiem is not much practiced now. Various expedients have been devised to blanch celery cheaply. Much the best ws knew is to have the oelery planted as nearly as possible on a level surface. When the stalks are large enough, place wide boards against the celery, holding them from falling by piling sril against the outside of the board pro:crion. This will blanch the stalks and Iravcs without causing rust, as soil is sure to do in a rainy season. American Cultivator. A REMARKABLE RUN. Heavy XraiB Makes a Xssg JHstaaee See on!
