WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1897.
CAKE OF TOiLET SOAP IN EVERY PACKACE. HOW DISEASES SPREAD. CatcIilng:" Diseases of Plants Are Duo 1 to Porasltei I'lowera May be Protected. A lecture on th spread of parasitic diseases among plants was delivered before the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, by Dr. Brwin F. Smith, of the United States Department of Agricul ture. In substance his remarks were: I shall for the most part neglect the well-known dissemination of parasites by wind and water, and deal chiefly with, the methods which are to a larger extent within our control. Farmers, fruit growers, florists, and market gardeners are not frequently respons ible for the spread of diseases. Thera are now so many who grow crops for market, and the competition is so close and the profits so small, that even the most experienced must stop every leak, In hie expenses. Therefore the avoid ance ,of parasitic diseases is most im portant. Most diseases which prevail exten sively and are known as "catching" diseases are due to parasites. These plant iparasites are plants or animals which have in some way lodged on or Rained an entrance into the "host plant" Snd there multiply to its detri ment Many of these organisms are exceedingly email, so as to be over looked, and are well provided with, means of reproduction. We speak ol saprophytes and parasites, the former toeing fungi which derive their nour ishment from dead and decaying sub stances,' and the latter nourished at the expense of other living organisms. The most of this address will be de voted to showing how certain parasites euoceed in getting from one plant to another. It Is commonly assumed that their reproductive bodies, floating through the air, lodge on the plants; but I am Inclined to beiiieve that often the chief danger to infection lies in other directions, for reason which 1 .will now explain: The gnawtoga, morlngs, and punc tures of Insects, though often injurious sre by no means the whole of the in 'ijury which they do.

The - photographing telescope has been under construction for three years 'past by Sir Henry Grubb of Dublin. The new photographic refractor has an object glas3 twenty-six inches in di ameter, with a local length of twenty two feet six inches, and is the largest refractor as yet J specially made for photographic purposes.' The photo graphs it will take will, be on twice the scale of the astrographic map tmo millimeters to one minute of arc -and on account of its relatively short focal length it will possess very great light-gathering power. For sep arating close double stars and in oth er cases in which a larger scale is de sirable and there is abundance oi light, an enlarging lens can be readily adapted to magnify the image to any extent that may be thought advanta geous. The function of the 12 inch Merz refractor, which is mounted as a guiding telescope, is to enable the ob server to watch the star during the time it is being photographed, and by means of the delicate slow motions in right ascension and declination to bring the image' back to the centre oi the sensitive plate as represented by the cross of spider lines, should the telescope in spite of all precautions fail to keep precise time with the star. Ev erything included, the telescope weighs some ten or twelve tons, about half the amount being accounted for by the moving parts. The object glass of the large refractor weighs, with the cell in I which it is mounted, about 350 nounds ' the flint - disk being 163 pounds and the reflector weighs, with its cell, about BOO pounds, and the attached spectroscope about 180 pounds. Chi cago Trihune. A Strange Story tlie Truth of WliicU is - !Not Gunrttnteetl. . . The old clock superstition occasional ly revives in unexpected places and in novel phases. An old eight-day clock built at Brunswick in 1808 and now owned by a descendant, E. F. Pouglass of West Dover, has acted peculiarly several times, so strangely in fact as to excite the interest of the family, which is of staid Quaker descent and not af fected by the vagaries of superstition. One morning late in March, 1823, tho elder Mr. Douglass being obliged to look after some property in Vassalbo ro, arose early, and was surprised to find that his clock had stopped for tho first time in fifteen years. He drove to "Vassalboro and stopped at the house of a friend near the present site of Oak Grove Seminary. The next morning he was found very sick with fever and on the 18th of April died at the precise hour on which he had found his clock stopped on the morning of his depart ure from home. In March, 1841, Ed-, ward F. Douglass removed from Bruns wick to West Dover, bringing with him the old clock, which still kept; good time. Several years since during a severe illness of the owner, the clock, which had been cleaned a short time' before, stopped, and could in no way be induced to tick again although many; attempts were made, as the old gentle-; man, who kept it in his room, was very: anxious to hear.it strike. After a few-; days' sickness, on the evening of the 30th day of March, at 8 o'clock, the old gentleman passed away, and the hands so long stopped, pointed to the very same hour on the dial of his old clock. The next morning in arranging his room the old clock was moved a few inches as it had been on several occas ions before, when to the surprise of all it began to tick. It was at once moved back into its corner and has kept per fect time ever since, ticking and strik ing as loudly as ever, Kenebec Jour nal. , WHEN NEXT WE MEET. No word of love tby lips nor mine have spoken! No fond caress has made our parting sweet; I thought, somehow, our trance of ioYe were broken If once our lips should meet. And yet, dear love, it grieves me that we parted So seeming eoldi we may not meet again. Mayhap the years will find us broken-hearted And wedded to strange pain. But.no! Such gloomy thoughts If they find greeting:, Will quench the hope that makes my futura sweet. We'll make amends for cur pensive meeting, Swettheart. when next we meet. Sam "VVelnmann, In Chicago Record. NOVELIST'S MISSION. Fulton's First Fare. There was one little incident In Robert Fulton's life about which few people know and which Fulton never forgot. It took place shortly before the return trip of his famous boat's voyage by steam up the Hudson river. At the time all Albany flocked to the wharf to see. the strange craft, but so timorous were they that few cared to board her. One gentleman, however, not only hoarded her, hut sought out Fulton, whom he found in the cabin, and the following conversation took place: "This is Mr. Fulton. I presume?" "Yes, sir." '"" "Do you return to New York with this boat?" .. "We shall try to get back, sir." ' "Have you any objection to my re turning with you?" "If you wish to take your chancej with us, sir, I have no objection." "What is the fare?" After a moment's hesitation, Fulton replied, "Six dollars." And 'n hen that amount was laid in his hand he gazed at it a long time, and two big tears rolled down his cheeks. Turning to the passenger, he said: "Excuse me, sir, but this is the first pecuniary reward I have received for all my exertion in adapting steam to navigation. I would gladly commem orate the occasion with a little din ner, but I am too poor nxw even for that. If we. meet again, I trust it will not be the case." As history relates, the voyage termi nated successfully. Four years later Fulton was sitting in the cabin of the Clermont, .then called the North River, when a gentleman entered. Fulton glanced at him, and then sprang up and gladly shook his hand. It was hia first passenger, and over a pleasant lit tle dinner Fulton entertained his guecit with the history of his successes, and ended with saying that the first actual recognition of his usefulness to his fellowmen was the $6 paid to him by his first passenger. Harper's Round Table. . No One to Whip Him. A woman in my neighborhood, a mother whose house and sewing and other work absorb her best energies one who whips when annoyed or inter rupted lay at the point of death, one summer day, says a writer in the Kin dergarten News. The eudden attack brought all the neighbors? together in groups. The little son, four only, was in my yard. My boy came in and said: "Mamma, Freddie says if his mamma dies there won't be any one to whip him any more!" The pity of such a thought! Dwell upon the incident, and imagine it your child! Tb.cn He Dined. James Payn tells of seeing an old gentleman in the lavatory at a club putting soap into his mouth, after which he murmured, "Thank Heaven, it's all right!" Mr. Payne inquired very delicately why on earth he did it. "Well, I've had such an infernal cold for the last week," he said, "that it has taken away my taste; every day I've tried whether I can taste the soap. To-day I can, so I shall not go home, but dine at the club." And after that he did so, expensively and with great gusto- f In Many Shapes " What fits suits " but what suits does not always fit.

Some people think it is nothing at all to write a story; any one could do it who tried. I had it already in mind, waiting to be written out. I talked considerably about the story I was going to write, and all of the family had come to have a sort of pros pective interest in it. They all took to saving up anecdotes and Jokes for me to work into it, and it got to be quite common for some cousin or other relative to run in with something good for Mary's story. That fall I thought I was going to find time to write it, and when we sent the soft soap and apple butter to town I had them get three quires of paper, for 1 was going to write a long story, and I knew I 6hould need lots of pa per. I said I was going to begin my story "to-morrow," but that evening brother Jim came after me. The children were taking the measles, and as there were six of them to have It I could see I wouldn't have a chance to write very soon. Just as they were getting well their mother "took down" with a fever, and it was spring, and the grass was all green before 1 got home again. Then I was so tired out I hardly got rested before house-cleaning and soap-making had to be done. After that a lot of visitors came; then the fruit, and har vest, and one thing and another took up the time, till the hottest summer weather came on, and I hadn't writ ten a line. The young folks were especially gay that summer; several families had rel atives visiting from a distance, and John Weston, old Judge Weston's nep hew, had come down from Canada. It wasn't long till they began teas ing me about John; and I guess they j naa some reason" to, for he was usual ly my escort to the merrymakings. I will not particularize, but just say right out that we suited each other so I well that we became engage! in Octo ' ber, on condition, though, of his con I senting to a long engagement, as I would not think of being married for a couple of years. I admired long engagements, and the hero and heroine of my story were to be engaged five years, and have nu merous quarrels and reconciliations. After it was all settled I began once more to think of getting a start at my story; but mother received such an urgent invitation to visit a brother out west during the holidays that she concluded to go. The second week in January mother got home, and John was obliged to go to the city on business that would keep him a month or so. Now was my time; there was no measles or fevers in the family of my married brothers and sisters this win ter, and I could arrange to have sev eral hours a day as well as not. Immediately after dinner I went to my room, locked the door, and got out my writing materials. I think I may say with truth that I received the greatest surprise of my life that after aoon; for instead of flowing along so easily and beautifully, almost telling Itself as I had expected my narrative would, once I had undertaken it, I could never make a beginning at all. I tried over and over again without the least success. At last I made up my mind that I was too tired to compose anything that day. The morning work had been rather heavy. So I Just took a nap and then freshened myself up in time for supper. Several weeks passed, and as it was stormy we did not have many visitors to interrupt, and every afternoon I passed in my room, with the door lock ed, diligently writing, as the family fondly supposed. I noticed how they made time for me, and excused me from accustomed duties, and I seemed to receive more respectful attention from my large circle of relatives whenever I appear ed among them. I was getting to be wretched, but I meant to succeed yet. It had become go much the custom for me to shut my self up for several hours each day that all would have been surprised "had I not done so. And what miserable hours they were! I planned and planned, and scribbled and scribbled; I declared, "I will write this story or die in the attempt," but it was of no use, the story refused lo be written at least by me. Time wore on, and I was getting nervous and Irritable. John, xrame back and insisted that I should take a week's vacation and ride out and visit more. Such a blessed relief as it was to me. Then I got cold, and was quite ill,' and feverish for some days; but the middle of March found me once more going through the weary pretense of writing my story. One evening In April John and I were siting on the back porch alone. I was thinking what a happy girl I should be if I had never thought of my story. We had been silent for a while, and I suppose I sighed uncon sciously, for, drawing nearer, John said: "Holly, I am sure something is trou bling you very much. I have been watching you and studying over it ever since I came back. You are so changed from the light-hearted girl you were last summer that I should hardly know you for the same. "I have sometimes thought you may repent of our engagement, and won dered if you would be happy again if you were free. Don't be afraid to tell me, Molly," he said. "I love you too much to hold you against your will." "Oh, no, John, no! It is that wretch ed, miserable Btory. It will kill me, I linow,"aa4 JJmrst jnto gfih.Jl ej, pest of tears and sobs that John was fairly frightened. It was such a relief to tell my mis ery to some one, and John did not laugh. He listened thoughtfully while I confessed that I wouid rather die than tell them of my complete and hu miliating failure. "You mustn't think of telling ;hem." he snlCl finally. "They are all firmly convinced that you are writing a great took. Your mother alone seems to think of your health and changed ap pearance." After a few moments thought he whispered: "I have a plan, " darling, that will make it all right if you will only con sent. Yovi made me consent to a two years' engagement, you know, Molly. I promised, ahd I meant it, but I can't bear to see you so unhappy. I am go ing to break my promise, and insist on being married this spring." "Wait," he continued, as I started up, "let me finish. We can be married the last of May or the first of June, spend a couple of months out west among my relatives there, and then go to Toronto for the winter. By the time we get back here the story will be forgotten." So it was arranged, and I was as happy as a bird. It was all I could do to keep from showing my joy at being released, and simulate a proper regret at not being able to finish my story. After we were married, when mother and I were having our last words olone together, she suddenly put her arms around me and whispered: "Molly, dear, I knew you couldn't do It." "Do what?" I asked in amazement. "WTrite that story," she answered, with her face in my neck. "But I never but how did you know I didn't?" I stammered. "I tried the same thing once myself," she said, between laughing and cry ing. Father believes yet that my mar riage spoiled a great novelist. I may add that my estimation of story writers has risen a good many degrees. Treasure Trove. Treasure trove interests everybody. Mr. Robinson tells of eleven crowns of gold, set with precious stones, found in 1S58 by some Spanish peasants near Toledo. One of the crowns has the Gothic name of Suinthila, who reigned from 621 to 631. Who buried them? We shall never know. The Brooch of Tara, Irish work of the seventh cen tury, was picked up by a child on the seashore in 1850. A viking robber may have droped it. The bullion of English kings was found in 1840, at Cuerdale, where it had been laid in 910. The ring of Ethelwulf of Wee sex turned up at Laverstock on the Test. As to drawings, a friend of mine found one by an intimate friend of Mi chael Angelo in a dirty little print shop, for half a crown. At Merton, my friend Mr. Esson, found a treasure trove of old mezzotints, beauties, In the attic over his college rooms. The letters of Warwick the king maker, were discovered in a loft over a coach house, by Mr. Maxwell Lyte.

How delightfully cool and comfort able, in the hot summer weather a bedroom looks that is finished and fur nished entirely in blue and white. In a charming country house the walls of one of the bedrooms are hung with a Delft china patterned paper, in blue and white, with shadings of cream. The ceiling is a blue-white paper with tiny blue flowers upon it. There is no frieze, the narrow white picture mould ing alone serving as a cornice. The woodwork, it is almost needless to say, is creamy white in tone, and of an enamel finish. The white enameled furniture is ornamented with quaint designs in blue; flowers and land scapes, old Dutch views, where wind mills, with wide-spreading sails, dom inate the scene. The white dimity cur tains at the bed and windows, are looped back with broad blue rblbons and a tall blue denim-covered screen, embroidered with white, half hides the washstand with its blue and white china toilet set. On the floor, white matting is partially covered by a By zantine rug in blue and blue-grey tones; and the water colors on the walla, the only bite of color in the room, are framed in white with broad white maps. Floral llenntles. Forty men worked three days and one night in putting into the Arling ton church in Boston the floral deco rations for the Anderson-Perkins wed ding. The cost was about J20,000. Fif ty thousand rose buds alone were used. In addition there were used 8,000 Am erican Beauties, 15,000 lilies of the val ley, 5,000 bridal roses, 5,000 brides maid roses, 20,000 carnations, hundreds of Easter lilies, 3,000 yards of aspara gus vines, 2,000 yards of smilax, hun dreds of yards of mountain laurel, 1, 000 or more palms and a number of Belgian bay trees. Wive Bnrred Frtm the Liner. It is a strict rule with the big trans atlantic steamship companies that the wife of a captain shall not travel in his ship. The company strongly prohibits its captains from taking their wives aboard with them. The supposition is that if anything should happen to the ship the captain, instead of at tending to his public duty, would de vote his attention mainly to the safety of his wife. A Summer Rhapsody.

While a business man of Newport News and his family were sitting at table wondering why the cook was so long in getting breakfast, a tramp,' who had come along just as it was to be served, sat in the kitchen eating what he wanted of it and keeping the cook quiet with a revolver. The ever active desire of newspa pers to give the public more than the worth of the public's money had a man ifestation lately in the case of a paper at Juniata, Neb., which put in so mod est a bill for county printing that tho supervisors voluntarily increased the amount of it and paid it. By the tomb of Henry Ridgely, who died in 1699 in Anne Arundel county, Md., Isaac C. Anderson, of the Second district of that county, recently found a coin of the date 1695, marked on the obverse "VIII. Skilling Danskc." The reverse, which is well worn,' bears a capital C, over which is the figure 5. Scorn must be felt by New York gripmen and Brooklyn motormen foi the motormen of Mechanicsville, Tenn.

Tke Ciari Policy in the Et Ex. ilnlGefl by a lUitiian Statesman. ,The Paris Soleil prints an interview between its St. Petersburg- correspond ent 3-:id a. prominent Eussian states man, which may le interesting1 just now. Among- other things the czar's man said: "We are not the enemies of England. "We willingly recognize the great role that she plays in the world. We sin cerely wish her success in her projects of Anglo-Saxon and. colonial f ederation4 But we are suspected ot cherishing a desire to capture Ilmdoiostan. What nonsense! What absurdity! England, however, refuses our offers of friend ship. Everywhere we find her in the front ranks of oqr enemies. She wjll compel us at last to take sides against her.. And for all that she ought to understand that her danger does not come from our side. Some da y she will bitterly regret the Franco-Iiussian al liance, but then it will be too late." Speaking of the eastern question, this diplomat made the following bodd state ment: "Turney will yield every point be yond a doubu Thjcssaly will be com pletely evacuated. The rectification of the frontier will not give Turkey more than a single verst. No town in Thes saly will be given over to the- sultan. As to the internal reforms, rest assured that we shall insist that they must be complete and final." The correspondent expressed same doubt in regard to the docile resigna tion of the porte, and asked for some further explanations. We are not now as we were at the immediate close of the Crimean war," said the Russian statesman. "To-day we are strong, and the Eussian govern ment can speak like a master. More over, we are in full accord with, the ideas of Austria. The resistance of Turkey would bring about a military intervention in which we would play the first part. Turkey does not want to commit suicide. She knows that her life and her death are in our bands." "But," said the correspondent, "Tur key will not last forever, ajid a. time must come when the Ottoman empire, poorly sustained by Europe, will crum ble to dust under its own weight." "Agreed," said the statesman, "but when that day comes we will be in a position to defy all our enemies united. will take Constantinople and Gal lipolis, and we will fight to the last oidier and to the last rouble to keep them. The question will be: Constan tinople for the sultan, or for the czar? That will be the dilemma. It will be for Europe to make the choice." if. Y.: Sun. !
