Large vessels of the same line will also run on Lakes Huron and Ontario. A FRENCH physician says that he has demonstrated that rheumatism can be cured by the sting of bees. The virus of the bee acts, he says, like a vaccinal inoculation, and a sufficient amount of it will render the patient entirely free from rheumatic attacks. He says, howeVer, that it would require the services of a good many bees to cave a well established ease of rheumatism, and the remedy appears to be worse than the disease. Sees may be good far hives—bee hives—but few people would care to use them for rheumatism or any other human -ailment. ACCORDING to the annual report of the Pullman Palace Car Company, 5, 023,057 people were carried in their cars last year, against 4,242,542 the year before. The figures aire interest ing, as showing how extensively the more luxurious modes of railroad travel are coming to be used .by the people. The palac car was originally monopo lized by the rich, but it id no longer considered a'luxury beyond the reach of persons in ordinary cdrcumstances. The public generally enjoys all the comforts of traveling, and they appear to be willing and able to pay for what they get. THOMAS G. WOOLITOLK has for the second time been sentenced to be hanged.

The evidence was circumstantial, but the long de lays and retrials have come about more through the horror with which people shrank from the belief that a son and a brother could commit such an awful act.

THE new National Park takes in the entire drainage area of the Yosemite and much more. It embraces the whole of the upper Tuolumne River, with the Hetch Hetchy Valley and the greater part of the Toulumne watershed. It includes Mount Lyell and its glaciers, Lake Eleanor and the Mariposa, Merced and Tuolumne groves of big trees. It stretches from Lake Eleanor to "Wawo* na and beyond, and from Hazel Green below Crane Flat to the highest ridge of the Sierra. It is about fifty miles in length by thirty-five in width, and considerably exceeds the State of Bhode Island in area. This magnifi cent reservation will be by far the most beautiful park in the world. It will lack the weird marvels of the Yellow stone—the geysers, the painted rocks and the stalagmitio formations—but in the magnificence and the charm of for est, cliff and waterfall it will be beyond comparison. THE solemn antics and mummeries of the "vegetarian philosophers" are enough to make the face of the earth broaden into a smile. Yet vegetarians are useful, and their good work will be felt long after their fad has been buried in the dust of anoient history. These worshipers of cereals, raw and cooked, of nut and fruit diet, while they will not cause mankind to return to the eat ing habits of our simian prototypes, will do this much good: They will instruct the ignorant and the wasteful in ways of economy they may bring about some reform in the matter of excessive meat eating and beer drinking and cause people to pay more attention to the products of the earth, which are now too much neglected. There i3 no doubt that much of the corn fed to pigs would •do more good if eaten by people. The vegetarians will finally disappear in 1ihe clouds of ,the fad, but they will Heave much grain for the world in their theoretical chaff. A PROMINENT New Jersey cranberry grower says that the New Jersey ber ries this year are unusually fine, and will bring $4 per bushel.

Cranberries are grown in the poorest lands of the country, but yield a large profit. The culture ol -cranberries is rapidly becoming the chief industry of the lower counties of the State, particularly Atlantic County The stamps and marshy lands are hardly fit for any other use, but make excellent bogs. The people are be ginning to realize that the barren lands which have hitherto been only an ex pense can be utilized, and large sums of money made from a very small in vestment. A grower who has had long experience in making and managing bogs said recently that a first-class bog can be made .for from $600 to $800 an acre, according to the quality of the bog.. THAT a sense of the dignity of Amer ican citizenship still animates the Americans abroad who revere the tra ditions of the past is occasionally made manifest.

DOMESTIC ECONOMY. HOUSEHOLD AND AGRICUL TURAL TOPICS DISCUSSED. A Budget of Useful Information Relating to the Farm, Orchard, Stable, Parlor and Kitchen. THE FARM. The Orloff Horse. Dr. Martin, Merccrsburg, Pennsyl vania, who has given much attention to the Orloff breed of horses, gives the fol lowing In regard to them in tho Farmed* Magazine: These fine -and highly prized animals are natives of far-oif Russia, and it is strange that there is so little known of them by horse-loving Amer icans. The Orloff is a low set animal, with a fine arching neck and a heavy coat of hair, as one might expect of a cold climate. The color is generally black, and no breed is known that is so likely to breed «eder ns as this strain, and when a Russian is fortunate enough to possess a pair of male colts of this breed, and if black in color, they are valued at one thousand dollars, if straight and all right, and when they are three years old, and happen to mate well, their value is well up in the four figures. They are, of course, driven as stallions, and can only be afforded by those in high official standing. As the American millionaire drives'his four-in-hand, so tho Russian drives his Orloffs, but not with check lines, as wo do, but a single rein to the outside of each animal's bit and to keep the horses from traveling too far apart there is a metallic arch resembling a hoop or half hoop fastened to the tongue or pole of the vehicle, and this arch keeps the horses from spreading out too much,, by confining them about midway between the ears and withers. This arch is often ornamented with bells or ribbons to suit the taste and fancy of Russian sports. It is very common, too, for the Russian to fasten to the bit of each horse a little bag filled with drugs to animate the ani mals and make them champ the bits and froth at the mouth, of course in such a quantity and proportion as will not prove very deleterious to the health of the aninxils, but to accomplish the desired result. Is it not probable that this strain of horses could be bred in this' country, at least in our Northern States. 1 say Northern States because of Russia being a cold climate, and to acclimate them for breeding purposes would be one of tho first objects to be kept in view, and would it not add another branch of in dustry and profit to the American farmer? There is no question that the young twins wtiuld command a ready market among our horse fanciers here as well as in Russia. Dielil Wheat. This variety of wheat was in its day very popular. It is a white wheat, with rather short, stiff straw, a square head and plump berry. Like most white wheats it is not considered quite as hardy as the largcr-strawed red varieties. It is a very starchy wheat, and it had the misfortune to be introduced just at the time when improved flouring processes made the millers all anxious to get longer red wheats tliat,contained ^arger proportion of gluten. It is now' found that a mixture of red and white wheat makes more and better flour than eith6r alone It is not likely that Diehl except for seed will ever sell so much higher than other wheat, as it used to. do but it may be profitably sown on land natur ally well drained and rich. On such land its stiff straw and large, square heads make a fine appearance at harvest time. When Diehl wheat was first introduced some farmers grew forty-two bushels per acre, the variety outyielding under fav orable conditions any other in the same neighborhood. It is especially adapted to very rich land, as its straw seldom lodges or rusts. JSxerctse for Idle Teams, On a farm it will often happen that at some seasons there will not, be constant work for all the horses usually employed. For various reasons it is tho habit of such farmers to devote all the work on one or two teams, and let tho other's stand idle fn the stable or take a run at grass in the pasture. But it is better, even for these idle horses, to do work enough to keep their muscles firm, and prevent the galling of shoulders which comes from allowing too long a season of idleness. These idle horses are apt to be poorly fed, from a notion that grain is no louger needed. When constant work is not required, not so much grain should be fod, but a couple of quarts of oats at morning and night will keep the horse in good condition, and ho should be made to earn it. Mares with foal should especially have exercise, not to be overworked in any way, but enough to impress upon the fostus that tho dam is bearing an adaptability to do what is ex pected from it when it develops into a horse. THE BA1BI, IOWA fs fast taking a high rank as a dairy State. MUCH milk is not as good as it might be if people would take proper care of it. THE German Dairy Association offers 81,000 for a quick, practical, and reliable milk test. IF you pack butter for future use, cover with brino, or with a cloth and dampened salt. IT takes a long timo to persuade some ponple that cows must be a permanent feature of tho'farm to make it pay and continue a paying farm. It ought to be a rule in "doctoring" cows that "when you don't know what to do don't do anything but the contrary is followed, and many dead or injured cows are the result. I never watch my cows when they calve, as I found they do not need it, but I watch their foeding for a few days after calving.—A. .L. Crosby. WK clip this item from and exchange: At Highland, III., there is a cream evap orating establishment. The cream is canncd and to all appearances is a vast improvement upon the article that is usually purchased from the city milk man. It is not sweetened like con densed milk, but has tho natural flavor of the cream. It gives to coffee a very rich color, and if it is entirely free from adulteration, we believe that it is des tined to achieve success. THE only good that can possibly result from the practice of stripping, is tlie check it forms upon tho cariessness of milkers, where a number, are employed, and there are those of them that arc in clined to slight their work. It is much bettor to milk the cows in a largo herd thoroughly, and to finish the job at ore sitting, but if stripping must b'c resorted to, it should be continued, or an actual lessening of the milk yield—as well as probable injuries to the milking proper ties of the cow—will inevitably follow. EVERY unnecessary stop on a farm in. doing the chores is just so much ab stracted from the timo and strength needed to do them. It is but common wisdom then to plan a proper contiguity of stables, pens, cribs, granaries and water works, and the shortest route from one to the other. On old farms this\)lan can be carried out only as new buildings are required, but luake your plan.now and work to it as new build ings takt* the place of old ones or arc built to' meet the the demand of increased stock.—Farm, Field, and Stockman. THE ORCHARD. Treatment lor Curcullo. The experiments of the Ohio Agricul tural Station with curculio the past sea son is given in a newspaper bulletin sent out by the station authorities. An orchard of 90U bearing trees in Ottawa County, Ohio, right in the heart of a great fruit-growing region, was se lected for the experiment. In the north half of it the method of catching the curculios by jarring on a sort of inverted umbrella mounted' on wheels was em ployed, while the south half -was sprayed four times with pure paris green mixed with water, in the proportion of four ounces to fifty gallons of water. S1he first application was made May 8 after the blossoms had fallen from the blooming varieties. There was a heavy rain the same night.and it rained almost continuously until May 15, when there was a short cessation. The second spraying was done on that day. The third spraying was made on May 20, and tho fourth and last, June 2. On the jarred portion of tho orchard a great many curculios were caught, show ing that they were present in numbers. A careful examination of both parts of tho orchard was made on June 3. Be tween' oue and two per cent, of the fruit on the sprayed trees had been stung, while about three per cent, of the plums op the jarred trees were injured. No damage to the trees was then per ceptible. Early in July the orchard was again examined. Some of the sprayed trees showed that the foliage had been dam aged by the spraying, but the injury was not very serious. Not over three per cent, of sprayed fruit was stung at that time, while about four per cent, of that on the jarred trees was injured. But on both the fruit was so thick that artificial thinning was necessary to prevent over bearing. A largo crop of fruit was ripened on both parts of the orchard, and so far as could be judged from the experiment, tho practicability of preventing tho in juries of tho plum curculio by spraying was demonstrated. This process is very much less laborious and costly than jar ring, and if future experience is as suc cessful as this season's work, plum growing will become much easier.— Farm, Field and Stockman. TBE APIARY.: Foul Brood." Tho plan I used on the most of my hives for cleasing them, when I had foul brood during the seventies, says G. M. Doolittle, in Gleanings, was to scald the hive by plugging it ali oVer in boiling Water, in a large kettle which was used on the farm for cooking food for the hogs, heating water for the butchering, etc. The hives were put in first and scalded, and afterwards the frames of combs, thus scalding the frames and making the combs into wax. at tho same time for as I made all of my frames by hand, then, I thought I must save them. However in these days of machinery I do not think that it would pay to bother with the frames, for this scalding pro cess makes them untrue and in poor shape for use again so that the new frames are much tho cheaper in tho long run. Later on, a bee-keeper living sev eral miles away called me to his apiary to see if he had foul brood. I found it in scvcrai of his hives, and told him how to treat it. After ho had cured it he scalded the hives by pouring water from a boil ing tea-kettle on to the Inside of the in focted hives, and no foul brood was tho result afterwards. If you are sure that the hot water hits every nock and cor ner of the hive, I do not know why this plan would not answer where nothing holdincr boiling wa.tcr is at hand large enough to put the'whole hive in. Tho first would be safest, however. Some claim that the hives do not need scalding or doing anything, else with them if they are allowed to stand out doors exposed to the weather through one winter. They say they believe the freezing and thawing of one winter is amply sufficient to destroy all the spores or germs of foul-brood about any hive. I should bo inclined to go slow on this, try ing only one or two till I had proved for myself that there was no danger from such'hivos. TUE U0U8KH01.1*. Nooeessfnl Moving. As a preliminary to successful and comfortable moving, let the housekeeper mako out a list of articles that mnst go, thoso which shall go first, and decide on tho things suitable to put in the same load. Have your packing boxes well aired and set in a convenient place, so that every article can be packed as soon as prepared. This arrangemeht saves all unnecessary Handling. Small pack ing cases are better than large, as they are more safely and easily -handled. Old newspapers arc excellent for lining thoso boxes, and also for placing between the various articles. Books must bo packed closely, with edges down, and It saves space to make each row as uniform as possible. Plqco the largest and heaviost books in the bottom, and the lighter ones on top, with plenty of paper or old rags between. In packing china, glass and bric-a brac, it is well to use excelsior, hay or paper. Use tho strongost boxes, and line the bottom with a thick layer of your packing material. Pitchers, bowls and all sorts of deep dishos should be stuffed with it, and no two pieces should ever touch each other. Fine ware should be first wrapped in tissue paper and soft crumped newspapers. Ia moving a short distance, one may use the wash-tubs and clothes-baskets for packing the china and glass, and have them carried by hand. .But, if going far, it is a good plan to uso the summer clothing, tho cotton underwear, and other soft bits, for packing and wrap ping. Pictures must be wrapped In canvas if going far, in paper if but a short dis tance, &nd packed standing on end. Valuable pictures must have a separate, wooden case. In packing furniture, such as sofas, chairs, tables, etc., the legs, arms and other projections panst be well protected, and tho wrappings fastened with twine. Carpets and curtains must be cleaned be fore folding. All such little indispensa ble trifles as picturo hooks, curtin fixtures, screws, etc., must bo placed in a stout bag and tied up, marked on tho outside, and laid by for uso when wanted. Wrap your bedding pillows, and similiu articles in old sheets, so that they will keep fresh and clean. Old barrels are usofull in packing kitchen utensils, and all sorts of provis ions that you cannot dispose of before moving should bo emptied into the cans and buckets that arc thus stored away. But a careful manager will so plan as to have little in the line of groceries to move. Have a full supply of food, bread, meat, etc., all cooked beforehand, so that the first meal in the- new liouso can bo prepared with but little trouble. It is usually some time before one is ready to do much in that line of work. Do not make the great mistake of starving your family and yourself on "moving-days." Give them your best jam, and your sugar-cured ham, and your dainty home-made cookies and beaten biscuit, .that are good wh'en a week old. Then tho children will enjoy. the frolic, and fancy that they are having a continu ous picnic. If you can only take things calmly and exercise all your tact, good sense and good nature, you will come out of the ordeal proud of yourself and admired by your family for having accomplished that difficult feat, a successful moving.— Peterson's. Hint* to Housekeepers. AFTEB greasing your cake tins, sift some flour into them, and your cake will not stick. ALWAYS serve oysters in hot dishes. Cook the oysters only until they curl." If cooked too long they are indigestible^ .EQUAT, parts of ammonia and turpen tine will take paint out of clothing, even if it be hard and dry. Saturate the spot as often as necessary, and wash out in soapsuds. STEEI, pens are destroyed bv the acid in the ink. If an old nail or old steel pen is put in the ink, the acid therein will exhaust itself on them, and pens in daily use will remain in good condition much longer. LAMr-BUBNERS, to give good light, should be cleaned at least once a month. To clean them, take a piece of soda the size of a walnut, put it into a quart of soft water, place the lamp-burner in it, an old tomato can is good enough, and set it on the stove after boiling tor five minutes, remove the burner, and when put back on the lamp, it will bo as good as new. ALMOST all kinds of vegetables should be put into boiling water when put on to cook. In getting up a good vegetable dinner, tho bes^ way is to clean a few beats, and put them on to boil about half-past nine in the morning at half-past ten add a piece of salt meat and a quart of shelled beans cook slowly, in just water enough to keep from bnrning, until quarter past eleven, then add sum mer squashes cook slowly, in just water enough to keep from burning, until done. Cook the potatoes separately, also the swoot corn. The corn should be put in boiling water to cook steadily for fifteen minutes. TH£ EITCHKX. LyonnaUo Eototooa.

Drain when done, and transfer to a hot dish. Pour over it a sauce made by stir ring into a cupful of boiling watej a heaping teaspoonfnl of cornstarch, two teaspoonfuls of butter, one of vinegar, aad a little pepper. Instead of the vin egar you can put in a teaspoonful of green pickle, minced 'fine. Stir over the fire until smooth and as thick .as custard, when add minced parsley. Pour upon your fish, cover, and let it stand five minutes in a warm place before it goes to table. Fried risk. Clean carefully, washing out tho Inside of perch, smelt or other pan-fish,and wip ing perfectly dry. Have ready a little dry, salted flour, and coat each fish well with this. Heat lard very hot in frying-pan, and lay in the fish carefully, not so many at once that you cannot turn them with case. This yon should do so soon as the under side is nicely browned, and when both are of a yellow brown take the fish out of the grease. If small, trans fer them to a hot colander, to rid them of every drop of fat. Send to table in a hot dish. Whon eggs are plenty you can make a really elegant dish of small pan-fish by dipping them in pounded cracker or bread crumbs, before frying. In any case serve your fish dry—not crisp—neither soaked in grease nor slowly converted into cindery chips. CANVASS COMPLET. MINNEHAHA COUNTY'S MOl DLE STRAIGHTENED.

A copy of the Chicago Tribune ad dressed to Judge W. W.

On the margin of the paper sent was the follow ing: "Judge Brookings: You will see by the marked obituary notico of Mr. Stuart's death that his wife and daugh ter survive him. The daughter is a pale, delicate girl, working as a type writer in one of tho down-town offices trying to pay off a mortgage of $1,000 upon their home.
