JOHN BROWN'S GRAVE.
WHERE THE REMAINS OF THE OLD MAN LIE. Bari«« at Old Haar With a Hay* Adlraadark Bowl«»r Ihr a iMaant-H. Selected the Mara llairlf-In; Viel tor» Every Tear, The grave of John Brown is almost the only point of bistorio interest in the Adirondack«. There are many points of interest, but they are not historic, says the Philadelphia Item. People go about to look at beautiful mountain and lake ■scenery, to witness the attractions of this or that summer hotel, to see Bue camps, and for other purposes, but tho region appears to have no history excerpt its natural his tory. Columbus did not discover the Adirondacks, the Pilgrims did not land in, them, no important battle of the .Revolution, nor even of the war of 1813, was fought in them. So far as men are concerned, these mountains appear to bo comparatively new ground. * Perhaps It is because of these facts that so many people visit John Brown's grave. He was the object of »-good-deal of interest In thifLCpuctry thirty-one years ago, but it is proba ble that comparatively few of the pres ent generation know or care whet be did that made him famous. They have all heard that John Brown's body lies a-moldering in tho grave, But his soul goes marching on. But the general belief is that he Is not the oaly man in that condition that, in fact, he is hardly exceptional enough In that respect to make him worthy of suoh general mention as he receive a Nevertheless, whatever may be the raaadh, a* groat many people in ,.10mMagte»JPAke|^ to John Brown's grave, and visitors to the mountains are apt to get the idea that it is a duty not to be left undone. The visitor in aeerch of John Brown's gcave is now guided to it by a finger-board at the point where the road to the farm brunches from the main road. That point is two or three miles from Lake Placid. - The sign on the finger-board rends, 'fiohn Brown farmhouse, ÿ mile—meals served." The road thence to the farm bears evidence of a good deal of travel, though there la no other dwelling near It except the Brown homestead, and it eofis then. It leads through a piece 4f woofla and then émergés into a clearing, which it circles through and lands its visitor at the farmhouse door. It la a modest bouse, and no de scendant or relative of Brown is now in poeaeselon. A country lad whose trousers hung by one suspender, wus giving information nnd offering photo graphs end relics for sale to two «erringe loads of visitors. , About fifteen yards from the house nnd nearly in front lies a great bowl- der of nearly rectangular form and perhaps fifteen feet brood by 30 feet long. Its surface is nearly a plane, plined, and, ia., five, or six ke sorfaOe of the grfiund. Beside this bowlder are two mounds, •'one of which is said to be the grave of - Jobe -Brown and the other that of hia son Watson Brown. At the bend of - one of Ihn mounds is a headstone, ap- parently of elate rook, on which are inscriptions giving dates of birth and - death of Captain John Brown, father •of the hero, of John Brown himself? •ned of Watson Brown, his son. There 'It no eulogy. The John Brown in scription merely pays, after giving the date of his birth, "Executed at Charleston, Va.. Dec. 3, 1859." The lieadsfepe has tseu.befttir, scarred by reliohuaters, and evidently to prevent damage to it a .wooden cover hat been made for it, which is fastened over it Iby a padlock. Tho boy of one sus pender unlocks and removes the cover when visitors wish to see the headstone, but never leaves the cover off, though he has to take it off and put'it on again many times a day. But this headstone is not tho memo rial. Tha great bowlder beside which the grave is has deeply out iu its upper surface in letters aud figures a foot long, "John Brown, 18 >9." The visitor may ascend this bowlder by wooden steps, and he will hardly fall to be increased with the idea that when the mounds shall have suck, when the little headstones shall havo crumbled, when, perhaps, "the spot shall cease to be inclosed by a fence as now, and visitors shall esase to seek it, the bowlder will remain with suffi cient tracing of the name on its sur face to commemorate it for centuries. It is said that it was after Brown had been condemned to death and his wife visited him io the jail iu Virginia that he requested that his body should be buried beside the bowlder near their home» It seems as if It must havo been a kind of inspiration for the old. man, .for b fitter:'place could not have boon selected.

Among the middle and lower orders of Russian society tho model wife is she whose good conduct and slavish obedience to the will or whims of her husband give him no excuse to lift hand or rod against her and who never beats her husband when he is drunk. Wives beating their husbands is, how ever, a recognized .phase of Ruasian social life. Among the cheap chromos that adorn the walls of village tea houses and track levs one of the most familiar scones is a drunken moujik on the ground and hin wife beating him in no gingerly manner. The merchant's wifo nnd daughters still keep out ot sight in accordance with oriental custom, when male friends call on the husband, and when they go shopping the husband and father goes with them, assists them with their bargains nnd pays their bills. Tho merchant's wire paints her cheeks, and is very fond of bright colored clothes. You often see them arrayed from, head to foot in garish red. She spends the greater part of her time in drink ing tea and smoking cigarettes andj gossiping with visiting friends. There is a saying that "a merchant's wife can drink a whole samovar of tea." Her mental abilities are held in light esteem by her spouse and his friends, who, though keen merchants, are, for the most part, men of scant education.' They will tell you that "a woman has' long hair, but a short mind," that she is a child of the devil, and that when you fall in love with her you fall in love with the evil one. It is consider ed bad luck to meet a woman when you are going fishing or shooting. In the churches "neither women nor dogs" are permitted to penetrate the' inner sanctuary, though men and beys are freely admitted.

The village had but one barber,, and one day be was'tsken SlcR. Just at this time a tin peddler came along, and when something wee seid about the barber's ill luck the peddler open ed his sympathy box at once, and said: "It is awful, awful! Poor, poor man! His income will cease, and hie business will go to ruin. Gentlemen, something ought to be done." No one else seemed to care much, but the peddler grew more sympathetic the longer he thought of it, and finally he posted off up to tho house and offered to open the ehop and run it a couple of days The*barber's wife gave him the key, and he soon had the curtain up and the door open. The first man to enter was a stranger in the town, who had stopped over to do some business with a druggist He took the chair and asked for a quick shave. The peddler lathered him up j and down and across, tucked up his ' sleeves and picked the first razor be could reach. Hia first scrape brought blood, his second pared off about a third of the stranger's moustache. ■Good Lord, man. what are you doing?" he shouted os he jumped out of his chair.

Imf srtaacs of krewiaf Haw ta Bilk Properly —If Taa Haro a Paat Taa Hhaald Balia Msh-Haeiy la Cbcstaat Triai— Tha bee. Haw to Milk. <* Henry Stewart in American Agri culturist says: No doubt tbe product of a cow is changed, for better or worse, by improper milking, and it is quite true that the art of milking mast 'tojJehd for Us effectiveness upon a knowledge of the peculiar character istic»- of the cow, especially of the cow's udder, and also of the method of production and the character of the milk. There is a reason for all things, and certainly there are reasons why milking should be performed in cer tain ways. These may be stated as follows: First—Milking should be done gen tly and with case to the cow, and with a certain manipulation of the udder to imitate, as much as possible, the ac tion of a sucking calf. Second—It should be done rathor deliberately-than otherwise. Third—Tbe udder should lie drained to tbe 1 st drop. Fourth—The more frequently milk ing is done the greater is the yield of milk, and the more butter there is in it. These points all depend upon the fact that the cow's udder is nota reservoir which is slowly accumulated drop by drop, as It is formed between the period of two milkings, but it is secreting gland which acts most co piously during a period of excitement. In this it resembles the salivary glands of the mouth, the pancreas, aad other digestive glandular organs, and tho lachrymal -glandSofthe eye. which are equally secreting organs, and not reservoirs. These glands are constant ly secreting their special fluids to imall extent but under excitement the secretions are greatly increased and flow copiously. The milk glands have the same peculiar.ty, and soon after the act of milking is begun, and not before, the udder fills and the milk flows until the supply of glandular tissue ready for conversion into milk is exhausted. Then a new growth of tissue begins and goes on in the inter val. and it wiii stop under certain con ditions if the milk is not drawn, when the small quantity of ' milk formed the udder will be absorbed, and tbe udder will dry up, aa it is termed. j ^ f e!M - failure in carp raising, ' Have ■ Carp Fond. No farmer who has a pond or can have a pond on his place can afford to be without a carp pond. It will prove more profitable and more wholesome than the pork barrel. There is no ex cuse for not having carp if the farmer has a place to put them, for the gov eminent stocks ponds free of cost as it is stroking rivers all over the country. Just now Immense quantities ot salmon, which it was supposed would not thrive there, are flourishing in the Hudson, planted there by the govern ment. If you have not a fish pond — scarp pond, if you please—dig one at once. The water there should never be kept cold or even very cool, in the season, but a constant influx from springs will not necessarily render it too cool for successful spawning; for in nearly any part of the United States the rays of the sun, if unimpeded, will warm the water enough for that pur pose. The greatest danger at the spkwnlng season is likely to arise from too much shade on one band or the too direot rays of the sun on the other. If, ..however, there- is a shady place on I your farm suitable for a carp pond j with water from three to ten feet deep ; and a supply accessible without allow lng the muddy rain-water from the fields to enter and gradually fill the bed with sediment, there is no reason After you have tried a fish pond you will woodor how you ever managed to get along without it are ia of Front la Christmas Trees. If a farmer, twenty-five years ago, had proposed to go into the cultivation of chestnut trees aa one of his legiti mate and # reliable sources of income he would protythJy have been ..looked upon by his neighbors os a little "off in the upper story." To grow chest nut trees for tbe nuts they would bear would have seemed almost like an at tempt to get a bouquet of flowers from the century plant by sowing its seed. Still in this day aud generation thrifty farmers in lutltudcs where chestnut trees flourish and where the temper ature does not fall more than ten or fifteen degrees below zero are planting chestnut trees for the nuts they boar, and they reap a limited harvest, too, in tho time it requires to raise three or four crops of eora. What is known as tho "Paragpn chea&nut" was trans planted from'Marietta, Pa., in 1888 to the grounds of the Rural Now Yorker when it was about the size .of a corn sulk. The next year it blossomed, but for tho treo's own good tha blossoms were plckod off, but this year, though only about two feet high er than an ordinary-sized man's head, it had quite a crop of chestnuts. rod nr Breed at Mire*.

A cow, for example, whom milk is mainly valuable for the fat it contains, may be properly fed with corn, oil meal or other highly carbon aceous fo ul. But a breeding mare needs other diet It is not Important that her colt bo born fat but it should be strong limbed nnd muscular. Hence the diet of oats itnd wheat bran or milk feed which is best for the trot ting horse is ulso best for the breeding mare, both before and after sbo bar dropped her feal. Distance Apart for Grapevine«. Most varieties of American grape vines require more room than is usu ally accorded in Europe. Vine grow ers are gradually lc irnlng to plant farther apart especially of the strong growing varieties. In tho early vineyards 7x7 feet was a common dis tance. That however, was soon found closer than was advantageous, und succoeding plantings havo been made 8x9, and in some places oven nine feet part each way. Slower-growing Va rieties, like the Delaware, require less room, but even with these a distance of nine feet between the rows affords better chance to cultivate and to go between the rows with teams and wagons to gathor the fruit Leaves for Protection from Frost, It is somewhat strauge how much power a thin stratum of leaves has in protecting soil from freezing. The explanation is that the loaves while dry hold a stratum of air under them through which frost does not easily penetrate. It is just the same when they are wet The earth also contains air which needs to be at tbe freezing point before it can freeze. Training Colts, The colt will learn more easily when six months old than when a year old It can ulso be controlled more easily. Hence it is wise to handle the colt early. Its early training should not stop with breaking to halter. It should be handled until any part of its body or limbs can be rubbed, until it is accustomed to the bridle, aud until it will drive as well as lead. To teach it ail this, and to keep it from forgetting whut it has learned, is n little trouble, but if the colt is of good stock the trouble is well paid for. Stimulating Euui.v* Growth. Fruit treos should have a little man ure every season, and never a great quantity at once. Excessive manuring causes blight in tbe pear tree, and in all it promotes wood growth rather than fruit. This larger growth is hardly ever matured well, and many trees that with moderate manuring are hardy would become tender and easily winter-killed if stimulated late ia the season._ Karlr Tomatoes. Experiments, it is said, prove that seeds from tomatoes gathered before they are ripe, will produce plants whieh will ripen their fruit earlier than common. It is said the same re sult fellow» the sowing of unripe seeds of anything. Should this be so aa a rule, it offers a wide field for profit to the plaatsman as well aa to the fruit grower. _ to Pertinent Suggestion.

AMERICA* R*«*nn* for It* Popularity-Hough Feat uraa Eliminated—A Manly and Scion tlBc Spurt—Anybody May Sum Flay It Tli a Duliaa of I'm pi re. I Special Correspondence.] The once "great American game" ot base ball seems just now to be in a rather crippled condition, and the reasons are not far to seek. Hie two words "mo nopoly" and "professionalism" describe the., eituatioa The baseball .manager has'become a greedy capitalist and the base ball player has degenerated into a cunning seeker after big salaries. The iocni enthusiasm and pride that formerly supported the game was found to be a rare quality during the past senson, the people having made up their minds that the principal thing tho base ball crowd as after was their pocketbooka A sport to be popular must bo honest and fuir, nnd must not lie fur above the physical skill and endurauce of the average citizen in good health and con dition with moderate training. When game gets so "scientific" that only meu who devote their whole time to it can play it to advantage, the public is apt to lose interest in it. Foot ball is the new hobby of tlie ath letic clubs and the snort loving publie. The game has of late been revolutionized, its rougit and bullying features have been thoroughly eliminated, and it is to day beyond question tho most popular game with tlie American college stu dents, who really give tlie cue in the matter of athletic sports« The reasons are simple. Foot ball lias been made a fair, manly, and honest athletic game. It is also a scientific game as played this year, but not so hard to learn that a good instructor can not take a hearty lot of young fellows and in a month or two of practice pul them in shape to contest creditably with ex perienced players. The present popularity of tlie game is largely to be attributed to the fact that its former rough features have been practically eliminated under the intelli gent and scientific "American rules" receDlly adopted in all the colleges. Slugging" aud any manifestation of pugnacity or desire to injure an oppo nent is now punished wiiti instant dis qualification, and the "rusher" is no longer selected because Of bis ferocity or brutality, but is required to exercise head work aud purely physical skill in stead. Several changes in the rules, which it may be entertaining to outline at tills time, have served to free foot ball from its objectionable features The first of these was tlie abolition of the old block game, the object of which was to hold the ball and force it ahead by the use of ing off ent to do ate *1 u.'Hr* t ? --,r, ] t - mil ING IS ALLOWED sneer strength. Thus, a team would get tlie ball and, taking good care to keep it, would simply mass themselves -and endeavor to push it further and further toward their opponent's goal. In doing this they would make very few brilliant runs, and kickingtikewise was not much resorted ta Of course, tbe method ot opposition was similar. Tlie side not having the ball would crowd togethei sad offer to the oncoming phalanx the resistance of their combined weight, using every effort at the same time tc gain possession of the leather sphere» The natural consequence was that the of action often remained about the same, neither advancing nor receding for long intervals, while the playen stood their ground and "slugged" each other to their hearts' content. Had it not been for the pugilistic attractions tbe sight would not have been diverting to spectator«» The block game was done away with by the passage of a rule providing that a side which had held the ball all ths time for three downs without gaining five yards or losing 10 should forfeit it to tlieir opponents. This regulation was afterward amended, and now directs that in order to keep the ball it shall be required to advance five yards or lose 90 in three downs. As this can not be done by mere force, it has become the com mon practice to take desperate chances in running and kicking, and the result is that tlie ball and tlie players are con stantly moving up and down the field. Equally important was the prohibition of "slugging" and the enforcement of tlie rule. It was a great step forward when the Intercol legist* Association decreed that for any flagrant breach of tlie rules a player might be disqualified In order to enforce this law the office of umpire was created, tlie duty of this | officiai being to watch only the men and to compel them to observe the proprie ties. "Slugging" is therefore danger* ous, and the best authorities now dis courage it more than they ones advised it It is a rare thing to see a really first class player indulge in it, because lie realizes that it renders him almost sure of dismissal while it dore his team no good. These are some of the principal causes why a man having ordinary regard for his appearance and bodily safety may now engage in foot ball, and why so many athletes are taking an interest in it The science of foot ball has developed just In proportion as "slugging" and ity. this of the liis dose at at low, with next eon, I lie blocking have disappeared. Each player now has distinct and importent Individ usl duties, whereas formerly tlm seven rusliers, with the exception of the center or snap back, weru very much alike Team work also k approaching a state of perfection. Tlie play to be attempted after each down is made known by a signal and every member of the eleven lias a part to perform in it When a runner makes lieadtong dives or wonder ful erne»« hk «•»»'»to '-ne before, hand what he is going to do, and each one makes it easier for him • to bacco—• plish something. Sonie make an open ing in the opposing line tor hhn to pa-a through and others guard him and head off those who would tackle. In a differ ent way, when the signal for n kick is given, the team prepares t» act in such .-» manner as to gain the advantage ot the ground which tbe ball will rover. There is no end to the possibilities ot invention and ingenuity, so thet foot ball to the expert becomee ip interesting study as well as a magnificent sport. These are fine points which meet people do not yet understand, but which, when understood, will enable them to appreci ate as well as enjoy the game. Of course, it will always remain a fact that seasoned players wilt beat ama teurs, but it is true in the games this season that the best coltege teams, composed largely of new players, have shown greater skill than ever be fore, and that, under the new rules, they would easily defeat tho slugging giants ivho were the best representatives of tho game a year or two ago. This means that skill and intelligence have replaced brute force, and that, in consequence, HOLDING A BCRSXB. good teams can be made more easily than was the case heretofore. The aggressive demonstrations of the present foot ball game aro confined rig idly to shoving, holding, and tripping, and even the inducement to this kind of roughness is largely done away with. Foot ball has one advantage over las* ball—it does nolcreate specialists to the same extent. The game of base ball has become largely a question of tho "battery." The best team of fielders id the country would be as children op posed to a far weaker team supplied with a superior battery. Unless the managers of base ball correct this evil, and bring the game back to a point where general skill and enthusiasm on the part of a team will have its dun weight in the result, it is evident that tlie once popular game is doomed, and, in thaï case, it looks as if foot ball might be the coming American game. As played now, the game is purely Ameri can, and has as little resemblance to the old foot ball game as base ball has la rounders." F. T. It, so in A Fraetlcaf Harmmt.

Tlm latter's answer was a savage Wow at tbe parson, which was "countered" In tiro most approved pugilistic style, and the next thing the tough man knew he was flung over an adjoining fence to tlie stony ground beyond. Surprised and dazed, he slowly picked himself op, and after making sure that no bones were broken, in a respectful and trembling voice said to his conqueror: "I bate to- trouble you so much» par eon, but if you would kindly throw my horse over to me I would be very much obliged.
