A FRENCH physician says that he has

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.

THOMAS G. WOOLITOLK has for the

people of his own fami!y. On the uight
of August 7, 1887, Woolfolk took an
ax, and going from room to room in his
father's house, bntchared every one of
its inmates while they slept. They were
his father, stepmother, three half-sis
ters, three half-brothers, .one infant in
arms and an aged aunt. 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

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

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

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

manifest. Those who attended the re

doctors in attendance at the Berlin
Medical Congress '-say that the ac
tion of the head of the American dele
gation of physicians and gentlemen,
as compared with the servi.ity which
marked the action of the English,
French, Italian, and other European
delegates, was such as to make every
American proud of his citi.?enship. The
American scientist bowed wirli the
«ame dignity that he would show if he
were introduced to a fellow citizen,
'while the leader of the English
delega­
tion, who was a "Sir" in addi'io'i to his
professional distinctions, groveled. "It
roade one sick of rank Ito .see it," was
ibhe remark of one clever American doc
tor on repeating the inciideits of the
veception in the Shell Boom of the new
palaee. "One might expect subservi
ency from the peasantry, bat not from
scientists."

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.

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.

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.

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.

Death of the Publisher of the First Terri
torial Newspaper.
A copy of the Chicago Tribune ad
dressed to Judge W. W. Brookings of
Sioux Falls, has been received containing'
an account of the death of the first
editor of a Dakota newspaper, which
was published in Sioux Falls. 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. As Mr. Stuart pub
lished the first paper in Dakota, don't
you think the state owe them some
thing?"
The notice in the Tribune is as fol
lows:
Mr. Isaac Stuart was born In Liverpool.
When a child he came to America, and with
his parents moved to Richmond, Va. At.
the age of 18 lie learned the printing busi
ness, which he worked at in St. Louis.
In 1850 he went to St. Paul, Minn., and for
some months was employed on the Pioneer
Pre*s, after which lie wus commissioned by
the government to start a nowspaper is
Sioux Falls, S. O., for tho.purpose of adver
tising the territory. Tiiis waa the first pa
per over published in Dakota, and waa
callcd the Western Independent. When the
war broke out he left his printing office
and entered the army as a piivate, and for
bravery wag soon promoted to a lieutenant
in the Second Minnesota infantry, and
served until the end. He returned to 8t
Paul and was again employed on the Pionter
for some years. It was at thia time
that he conceived the idea of the necessity
of a printers' union, and he and some others
were the. first to eatahiish a union in that
city. In 1871 he came to Chicago and had
since been employed on the leading news
papers of tlii*" city. Kor a year he had been
in failing health. He anlTerud a great deal
the last months of his life. He was ready
and willing to go, his only regret boiug the
sorrow it would cause the ones left behind
to mourn him.
Fuel Famine Averted.
The fuel famine, that seemed imminent
at Huron has been averted by the arrival
of several carloads of coal. Dealers say
shipments will continue till all the shoils
at stations on the various lines of rail
roads are filled with coal. A scarcity of
cars are interfered with shipments, and
the reported discovery of immense beds
of soft coal west of ihe Missouri river
had a discouraging effect upon the Iowa
and Illinois dealers, and ihey refrained
from making heavy shipments to this
part of ihe west. sSineo these reports
iiave proven um rue. dealers are prepar
ing to *end immense quantities of soft
coal to this hicslity. and within a few
days the supply w:il bo sufficient to meet
the demands.
