FOii THE FARM AND HOME.
Sp'lUitK ' 'it l oad. When an animal chews its food and spits it out —which is called quidding —it indicates a diseased, overgrown, or injured tooth. This interference with the mastication produces indiges tion and failure of condition, but these effects will soon disappear wlicn the cause is removed. The teeth should be examined and those that are found disordered in any way treated as may be needed. If the edges are sharp or project, they should be rasped and smoothed, or, if requisite, the tAoth should be removed. The trouble will then cease. Slnrttn: IMnnts Kariy. A German paper gives the following interesting method of starting plants early: The seeds of peas, beans, cucum bers, etc., aio started in a frame, and when a little grown are lifted and the roots dipped in a mixture of clay, chopped moss, water and loam, and on withdrawal are sprinkled with firm, dry earth. A piece of tuoss is then flattened into the form of a plate and a little earth sprinkled on it. The prepared plants are then placed on this plate, the moss folded over the roots, tied on so as to form a little ball and set away on boards or shelves, until the season for removing to the open air comes, when they are planted, pot and all, which gives them an early start - Root Pniiilnf, The experiments were made on the apple and pear. A vigorous apple tree, eight or ten years old, which had scarcely made any fruit buds, has done best when about half the roots were cut in one season and half three years later, by going half way round on op posite sides in one year and finishing at the next pruning, working two feet underneath to sever downward roots. It always answered well also to cut from such trees all the larger and longer roots about two feet and a half from the stem, leaving the small ami weaker ones longer, and going half way round,, as already stated. The operation was repeated three or four years later by extending the cut circle a foot or two further away from the tree. By this operation unproductive fruit trees become thickly studded with fruit spurs and afterward bore profusely. This shortening of the roots has been continued in these ex periments for twenty years with much success, the circle of roots remaining greatly circumscribed. The best time for the work, has been found to be in the latter part of August and begin ning of September, when growth has nearly ceased and while the leaves are yet on the trees, causing greater in crease of bloom buds the following year than when performed after the leaves had fallen.— London Garden. Farm and (harden Notes. White clover generally springs up where bones are applied on old pas tures. It is easier to grow rhubarb from the seal than to get old roots, as these seldom give satisfaction. • It appears from Pliny's description that the rhododendron of the ancients, so poisonous to animal life, was what we call oleander. Soot is quick in its action without being too stimulating and makes an excellent top-dressing for spring grain and grass. It will destroy slugs on winter grain. As to the management of the hydrangea in spring, cut all the branches well back, and dig in some good manure around the plant, and keep it well hoed during summer. Camellias raised from seed will blos som as certainly as any other plant raised in that way. Pudding and * o grafting do not cause plants to bloom; these operations are employed to pro pagate varieties. ' Dr. Sturtevant says in cutting a potato for seal it seems, so far as he at present knows, to be advantageous to prepare the seed a few days in ad vance to use and to place in such a position that their cut surfaces shall, to a certain extent, become dry. Tomatoes will not do well on a poor, stiff soil. The fruit will be small in size and quantity and poor in flavor. For rich flavor and smooth fruit, man ure the soil with well-rotted stable manure plowed under. • Unleached wood ashes makes a good additional dressing. Receipts Tomato Hash. —Chop cold roast beef or boiled beefsteak very fine. Put a minced onion and a tea-cupful of tomatoes on to boil. When the onion and tomatoes are thoroughly done, add the beef, a small piece of butter, pep per and salt to taste. Serve scalding hot. Orange Pudding. —Two large oran ges pared and cut in pieces one inch square, put in the bottom of a pudding dish, pour over them one cup of white sugar; then make a plain corn starch pudding without sugar and pour it over the orange ahd sugar.

Tlic I>r lit met lon of the Councrthr Cnn*f or flic l.ntler. Many persons assume that a great flood contradicts the theory that cut ting away forests causes exceptionally l)\v water in the denuded country. The truth is. the destruction of the woods means water courses to run ex traordinarily low ami high, according to the season. In ISSI we had the lowest water ever known in the Ohio, 4 and to-day we have the highest water ever known. These extremes eiually illustrate the theory we urge upon tho attention of tho people. The reasons are perfectly distinct. Take a mass of mountains on the Alle ghany, Monongahela or Kanawha. Let us suppose them clothed with trees from the foot to the crown, and with underbrush and mosses, with beds of half-decayed leaves, resting upon soil that represents deposits of leaves and vegetable growth for thousands of years. Each mountain is an enormous Sponge. The rain may fall for days, and the greater part is absorbed, satu rating the soil, tho grass, the leaves, lingering in the bushes and the trees, j The half-decayed logs will hold barrels of water, and for weeks after a heavy rain the moisture is trickling away in thousands of flush springs. Cut away the trees —the underbrush perishes, the moss is dried up. the soil washed away and the rocks are exposed. The rains descend, and the mountains shed the water like the roofs of houses. All that falls makes its way into the tor rents at once. Take a thousand mountains at the head-waters of the Ohio, and reduce them to barrenness, . and it follows that the river is lower in drv weather and higher in wet weather, and more and more subject to extremes of high and low water. Europe is suffering more from floods than in former generations. They are the clearlv-traced results of the de struction of forests, and made more de structive by a system of levees that are equally false and futile. The experi ence of Hungary and northern Italy is especially instructive. The preserva tion of mountains from destruction; that is, from becoming utterly barren —a desolation of rocks —is a duty that public safety demands. The greater part of Switzerland would have been uninhabitable long ago if it had not been for the systematic cultivation and preservation of forests. There are many mountain sides in Switzerland that are wonderfully supported by trees and shrubbery, cared for with a full appreciation of their importance. The wasteful, reckless cutting of trees, and carelessness, or worse, in burning away woodlands, must stop, for it is a public mischief. Forest culture in the mountains is needed; an! the whole trouble is not in the higher lands. The hillsides must be cared for, as well. There is away of ; plowing them that is conservative and when there is a ten lency to wash they should be supported by grasses. Here the rotation of crops comes in, the preservation of brooks by the cul tivation of willows, the rest r it ion of land that is growing ragged un ler the rains by the native forest trees, or. if the case is bad, trees of quick growth. A magnificent forest of bla k locust can be raised from the sprouts in from fifteen to twenty years.— Cincinnati Commercial. Hearing in Insec's. The sense of hearing in insects has been recently studied by I Terr Gruber, lie found the cockroach very sensitive. On sounding a vio!iu-notc when a cockroach was running across the flyor the creature always suddenly stopped. Again: a number of these cockroaches were inclosed in a glass vessel, and on making af strong sound there was evident agitation and excite ment; some would fall down from the glas, as if paralyzed. A cockroach was hung by a thread from its hind leg; when it was quiet a how was drawn sharply over the vio'in-string.s at the distance of about four feet, whereupon the insect was greatly ex cite 1, and struggled round, getting its held uppermost. Beetles also were readily affected by sounds, hut grubs and ants gave no certain indications. Of aquatic insects various kinds of Corixa were tried. These would often remain quite quiet for several minutes, but, on tapping the glass with a glass tube, they rushed aboflPt in much agitation. A disk at the end of a long rod, drawn to and fro in the water near a quiet Corixa, produced no effect; but, on conducting the sound of a struck bell into the liquid by the rod, there was lively reaction; similar ly when a glass bell, stroked with a bow, was brought to touch the water. These creatures were also sensitive to high violin-notes in air, to the sound of a metal plate struck with a hammer, etc. Still more sensitive to sound were various aquatic beetles. On the other hand, various larvae, especially of Ephemerides, were unaffected; but these were sensitive to mechanical agi tation of the water. Ilerr Gruber considers the response the insects made to sound an indication of true betting. WA net mere rtfu* Uw. THE NEWS. > f . I. town, Jfiiw, of thmurtUw Y>f Cni'tnin A. U.

Dr. Merkel states that the bight of an individual after a night's rest, measured before rising from the bed, is two inches greater than it is in the evening, measured standing. There is a gradual diminution in bight, caused by the yielding of the plantar arches and of the- intervertebral discs; and a sudden diminution, when the indi vidual rises, occurring at the articula tions of the lower extremities. The sinking at the ankle is one-third of an inch; at the knee, one-twelfth to one eighth of an inch;at the hip two-fifths of an inch. The shortening at the ankle is probably due to the elasticity of the cartilages. At the top there is, in addition, a sinking of the head of the femur into the jotyloid cavity A Man in Slays. Mr. Richard A. Procter, a well known lecturer on astronomy, once tried the experiment of wearing a corset, and thus describes the results: "When the subject of corset wearing was under discussion in the pages of Tho English Mechanic, I was struck," he says, "with the apparent weight of evidence in favor of tight lacing. I was in particular struck by the evidence of some as to its use in reducing corpulence. 1 was corpulent. I also was disposed, as I am still, to take an interest in scientific experiment. I thought 1 would give it a fair trial. I read all the instructions, carefully fol lowed them, and varied the time of ap plying pressure with that 'perfectly stiff busk' about which correspondents were so enthusiastic. I was foolish enough to try the thing for a matter of four weeks. Then 1 laughed at myself as a hopeless idiot, and determined to give up the attempt to reduce by arti ficial means that superabundance of fat on which only starvation and much exorcise, or the air of America, lias ever had any real reducing influence. But I was reckoning without my host. As the Chinese lady suffers, I am told, when her feet-bindings are taken off. and as the Hal-headed baby howls when his head boards arc removed, so for a little while was it with me. I found myself manifestly better in stays. 1 laughed at myself no longer. I was too angry with myself to laugh. I would as soon have condemned myself to using crutches all the time, as to wearing always a busk. But for my one month of folly I had to endure three months of discontent. At the end of about that time I was my own man. again." A Submarine Army of Torpedoes. A remarkable means of defense is known as the "Graydon-Lcach system," and provides for the maneuvering of fleets or torpedoes under complete con trol, below the surface of the water, and admitting of entire or partial withdraw al at pleasure, to permit the passing of friendly vessels, or enticing hostile ves sels within the limits and then sur rounding them with torpedoes that will insure their destruction. The torpe does can be massed, moved in various directions, and, in fact, maneuvered similarly to bodies of troops, and, being entirely submerged, give no signs of ap proach to the enemy. Tho system is comparatively inexpensive,and the plan simple. No hostile fleet could enter a harbor defended by it, and therefore its novelty, simplicity and practibility render it very valuable. Though we have at present no adequate means of defense for our coast and seaport cities, yet byjthis system of torpedo defense a hostile fleet could be kept beyond shell ing distance of New York, Brooklyn, San Francisco or any of our seaport cities, and even tho mouth of Chesa peake can bo easily rendered iu> To R'fttore fading Flowers.
