THE FARM AND HOME. St. Louis, Mo., March 2(1. A scrie of forgeries of the memt remarkable kind has been unearthed In this city and detectives are now at work upon it At least eight banks have suffered and probably more. The aggregate of the forg-ed paper will reach g.'O.OOO, all of which sum ha gone into the pockets of a ganjy of professionals, who have succeeded by the use of a system never before equalled, the principal feature of which wns the securing of genuine cheek blanks and full knowledge of the serial numbers, by which knowledge they were able not ouly to minimize the danger in uttering, but also delay detection. The number of persons in the frang of forgers Is supposed to be not ex ceeding three, but their knowledge of banking and business methods aod the versatility of their autograph artist are admittedly ample. Their preparations were elaborate and consumed some time, but tvlien ready their haul was made with astonishing celerity. As only a few of their checks have been passed upon by the alleged drawers, it is impossi ble to say how much the forgers took, but it cannot bo less than 120,000. The forgers first took account of the fact that the checks drawn by busi ness houses are written usually upon the firm's own lithographed head ing, protected by several numbers on check and stub. The forgers therefore, not only counterfeited the blank check forms of their victims, but numbered their checks close to the numbers of the checks then run ning with each victimized firm. To do this latter, opportunity to see the genuine check books was nccom plihhed in yari"i way. In one case, that of tho Charles W, Melehcr Machine company, whoso sig nature was forced to a cheek for 8500, a young man, Mating that ho represented tho printing house which . lithographed the firm's checks, asked permission to see their check book, as he was sent out to trace up books al leged to have been badly lithographed. The ruse succeeded, aud was proba bly used in other cases. In this in otance the Continental bunk lost $500. As there were citrht or more other banks victimized and no one yet knows how many Arms, there is no way to tell the total loss. Hold Itobuery In H Joseph. St. Joski'H, Mo., March 20. rat O'Brien, a tough character and a stranger, went into Burnett's jewelry house on one of the principal streets, at noon yesterday, and, finding but one clerk present, knocked him down and made off with a considerable amount of jewelry. O'Brien, after a desperate resistance, was captured, but his partner made good his escape, taking the jewelry with Jain, COXEY'S ARMY. Millionaire Coxa of New lork I natilo to Keep HI !Mle truul (iatnbllna. j New York, March 2J. Franklin j Cose, a well known figure on uppci Broadway, who comes of a rich and prominent family and who has ac quaintances all over the country, figured in the Jefferson market police i court yesterday on a warrant svvoro j out by his wife, charging' h'm with failing to support her. Coxe came originally from Ituther ford, N. C, but his mother lives at At lanta, Gsl, and is said to be worth $2,000,000 and he is her only heir. He has always had a large income. At one time he was known as the "Bay bide Millionaire," owning a mag nificent country villa at Bayside, h. I , where lie kept blooded horses, fine dogs and a yacht, lie and his first wife, a Southern woman, were divorced and he was married to his present wife, Edith Kcofleld, whom lie alleges ho tirst met at Roster & Dial's in Jloboken in Jdsi. They lived together in fashionable apart ment houses and "cut a wide swath." The wife developed an un controllable passion for gambling on races and her money and jewels all went on horses. She became, ac quainted with (leorgc Forbes, the own er of Arab and other horses, and was only happy when at the races. He tried to Induce her not to invest so heavily, but shu said he was a "hoo doo" and that she did not want him to go with her. After that she went alone or with her sister, and Coxe saw her Kitting in the grand stand several times wjth Forbes and other sporting moii. Hhe was almost a daily visitor at (luttenburg, and at times was accredited lucky. Among the members of a large circle of sporting people hhe was known as tho "Little l'lnngcr." May 28, ISM, while tho couple were living at the Oedney house, Mrs. Coxe left and stayed away several days and they did not live together after that Lant Wednesday Mrs. Coxe caused a warrant to be issuod for her husband and he was ordered to pay her &8 a week. Jfc will probably sue for di vorce. IJfcrrillK for oey' Army. 8r. Jomki'H, Mo,, March 20. Twenty two tramps slept at tho police station, a greater number than have htayed there any night during the winter. They left for tho Fast, and said they expected to be witn Coxey'sarmy when it halted at the capitol steps in Wash ington. Several professional tramps were among the number, but most of them seemed to be mechanics. They said they would very likely go Ea&t at once, and not wait for tho Western di vision of the army.

It Cannot Assemble In Washington With out l'ermtamlon From Congress. Washington, March 2ft. There is one circumstance which may seriously interfere with the general features of Coxey's marching program at Wash ington. It has been stated , that the object of his bringing his army here is to assemble it on the steps of the capitol on the 1st of May for the purpose of impressing its views upon congress. To do this it will bo necessary to first secure authority from congress, as there are specific acts upon tho statute books forbidding the assembling of crowds in the capitol or in tho capitol grounds for tho holding of any sort of public meeting, except the sessions of con gress and the assemblages which are incident to the inauguration of a pres ident. These laws go to tho extent of forbidding organized parades through the capitol grounds. tieorga Dixon Knocked Out. l'mi.ADEDriii A, March 2ft.

It is a common complaint of farm ers that potatoes do not show the vitality and vigor they used lo da Varieties that endured thirty or forty years, as the old Mercer or Neshannock, have long sinceentirely disappeared, though new varieties greatly resembling them have been reproduced from seed. Lvcn so re cent a potato as the burly lloso is not what it onco was. Jhoso that produce best now are not descendants by cuttings from the original stock, but have been reproduced from seed, says tho Market News. J his tendency to rapidly degener ate datos from about tho time the potato bug made its appearance. Jt was most pronounced m It affected ato potatoes. Ihe year before the potato beetle became very numerous we grew Peachblow and Peerless po tatoes in the same field- It was a good crop of each, upward of 200 bushels per aero of Peachblow and about 350 of Peerless, the latter va riety being then new and growing more vigorously than it ever has since. Late in tho season somo po tato bugs erot on one corner of tho Peachblow patch. It was after tha vinos of other varieties had died down, and the bugs did somo Iniury before they were discovered. The yield of the potatoes did not soem atiected, as tho bugs cumo so late in tho season. Not much barra was thought to bo dono, but the next season a fow of the Peerless potatoes and more of tho Peachblow variety, iiuno up weak, and made only a spindling growth. Jn two or throe years thereafter, the Peachblow va riety became wholly unreliablu and was scarcely grown at all. There can bo littlo quostlon that any injury to potato foliage during growth results in some deterioration of tho vigor and vitality of its seed. It Is inevitable whoro bugs exist that they should do some damage- to the leaf. If poisoned when very small thoy aro obliged to eat some of the foliage to get at the poison. Sometimes, too, tho poison itself Is used so freely that it burns the leaf. This, of courso, is just as bad as to have foliage eaten by the larvie. Potatoes grown thus do not ripen as thoy should. When dug their skins slip as those of new potatoes do. The potatoes have to lie in pits in the field thinly covered to dry out, In this unripe condition they are, of course, more exposed to rot We may say, indeed, that if potatoes can bo ripened early and properly -in the field, loss from rot would be unknown. As the potatoes have mostly got their growth, the common idea Is that it does not make much differ ence now severely tneir top are eaten down. Bo long, however, as frosts leave the leaves alivo, they are building up and developing the tubers. In the old Peachblow a good deal of growth was made after the leaves were frosted, from the sap in thoir stalks. The late crop of bugs prevents this. It Is, therefore, as imrJortaiu for future crops that this late crop of bugs be destroyed as it is for the present that tho early bugs bo poisoned. Not only do the late bugs threaten greater dangers to tho crop next spring, but thoy docreas-e tho ability of tho potato to resist them. More care needs to be taken in so- locting seed potatoes. It will usual ly bo found that the potato beetle loaves uninjured the most vigorous sappy vines. Instinct teaches it to lav its etrars cluoflv on those vines of slender growth. Yet at digging time these poor hills may contain one or more good-looking, marketable tu bors that in a bin would bo naturally selected for sood. The only way to guard against poor or missed hills next year Is to select seed while tho crop is growing, keeping off all bugs and taking tho host and smoothest tubers from hills that glvo tho larg est yields. I Liiil l ife and Land (ironth. 1 have made tho life of plants a study for forty years. While at the world's fair 1 interviewed many foreign horticulturists and agricul turists and in my opinion the Japa nese know most about these subjects. They are now dwarfing all trees aud frulU- without budding or graft ing and I believe I partly understaud their mofto. It is my opinion that by producing trees by grafting and budding, and potatoes by tuboro Instead of from tho eod, we unex the plants and trees, which will sooner or later de stroy them by disease, that Is. finally impair their vigor and vitality to such an extent a to nuallr fall to produce fruit.

John C. Bender in Colman's Rural World. The l.ife of a Farmer. a old farmer gives some hints in a letter to an exchange that may be useful to our readers. He says: "I have been, a farmer all my life, which is over fifty years, and love it for what can be raado out of it 1 do not mean dollars an 1 cents entirely, but real, genuine happiness, con tentment and independence the noblest occupation 'our Maker ever designed for man.' I think what makes so many get disheartened is the hard work, before daylight and after dark, and also on stormy days. No need of it now, with all of our improved machinery. Do your work jn season. Don't try to cultivate too many acres. Make all around attractive and neat Have a place for everything, and . put it there when you are done using it Keep up your fences, and gather up the old rubbish. Mow and trim up the weeds and brush nround your fences nd buildings. Mako your home pleasant, indoors as well as out. Jlavo plenty of good books and papers." I'arin NoU-h. Eight pounds of bran a day fed to tho cows, even when they are on good pasture, will pay. Sweet cream butter does not please the average consumer as well as but ter from ripened cream. A spring, or weight and pulley, on tho cow stable door is a good invest ment, as it insures against accident ally leaving it open some cold night Thero aro still somo people who think that in days gone by when there were none of the modern methods of butter making, the butter was just as good as now. Not as a rule, friends, if ever. Putting a horse upon the market unbroken and trying to got a good prico for it, eavs a writer, is like putting green lumber on sale and ex pecting tho value of the seasoned and finished product. An average yield of black raspber ries is about seventy-five to eighty bushels; rod raspberries, seventy; blackberries, 100 bushels per acre, according to the estimates of Profes sor Bailey of the Cornell experiment station. Beans after thrashing should Dot be stored in large quantities, as they are liable to sweat ana moia; it is well to spread them in a dry room for a time, and then put them in sacks to prevent the generation of moisture. A very handy truck for moving barrels of grain, vegetables, eta, pay be made by framing together two pieces of 3x3 scantling and throo strips of planks, so "as to form a platform three feet long and two feet wide, and resting the same upon four piano casters. A Kansas fruit grower says that corn is undoubtedly by far the best crop for an orchard that can be grown as it breaks the wind and the trees grow up straight Insects, as a rule, will not trouble a tree when there is plenty of groon fodder and corn for them to work on.
