Stocks — The stock market was again almost
entirely in the hands of the bears, though on th«
whole day they made no further progress to
wards a lower range of prices. Only mining
stocks sold as low as the lowest prices yester
day, and a few of these sold a fraction lower
than the lowest of yesterday. On the other

highest prices yesterday, viz.: Union Pacific,
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, Pacific Mail,
Missouri Pacific, Central Pacific, Delaware,
Lackawanna & Western, Denver & Rio Grande,
Missouri, Kansas & Texas and Michigan Central.
The result of the day's trading was a general
decline of %@3% per cent., the latter for
Northern Pacific preferred to 76%, with 2% per
cent, on common to 48%, 2% per cant, on
Oregon Transcontinental, 1% per cent, on Phila

Central, 1 per cent, on Canada Southern, 1%
per cent, on Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Omaha and a fraction on other stocks.
The Evening Post says: On the whole the
buying and selling is of that artificial character
which does not affect the general ho ding of
stocks. The trades are mainly of a kind which
may be extinguished to-morrow and have no
permanent effect.

creased demand at jobbing hands with a good
volume of business completed and progress of

Farm Makings.
To keep oats . well a cellar should be
cool, dark and riot very dry.
Warmer pens would be a comfort to
pigs and a source of profit to farmers,
who would save corn in feeding.
Experiments are in progress in
England for testing the adaptability of
that country for the growth of American
varieties of apples.
A New York farmer says that Canada
thistles may be killed by plowing them
under about the Ist of July, or when the
stalks are hollow.
It is said that two thicknesses of pa
per, used in lining the barrel in which,
apples are packed, will prevent them
from freezing while being shipped.
To have a potato retain all of its good
qualities it should be dug on a dry day,
and at once stored in a dark cellar. It
is a mistake to suppose that a potato is
improved, or will keep better, by drying
in the open air.
A New York farmer says that he has
a common dunghill hen, which is 12
years old, and has laid an egg every day
except about two months each
year since her first, and during those
two months she has raised an average of
twenty-five chickens per annum. She
sings as cheerfully now, and cackles as
loudly while at her work, as she did
eleven years age, when she first began
the discharge of her important du
ties. At this rate, this hen in eleven
years must have laid 3,356 eggs, which,
at 15 cents per dozen, would have
brought $39.45, and would have raised
275 chickens, which at $3 per dozen,
would have brought $68.75, making a
total of $108.20, from which take $2 for
keep, or say $24, and there is left a
clear profit of $84.20.
An Illinois farmer has the following
contrivance for removing manure from
his stable : A line of 4x4 scantling runs
lengthwise of the stable over the drop,
and extends through the door to a post
in the yard. The scantling are fastened
to the joists overhead by iron rods.
Four sliding door wheels are made to run
on the scantling, two on either side, the
pairs being about eighteen inches apart.
The iron attachments to the wheels are
bolted to a 4x4 piece, holding them firm
ly in place. To this a box with a dump
bottom is fastened. This box is filled
with manure, pushed along the carrier
to the post in the yard, where the con
tents are dropped, and the box drawn
back for reloading. The cost is slight,
and the convenience great. — Chicago
An lowa farmer, says the Chicago
Times, put up twenty one-year-old hogs
for fattening, and for the first twenty
one days fed them on shelled corn, of
which they ate eighty-three bushels.
During this period they gained 837
pounds, or upward of ten pounds to the
bushel of com. He then fed the same
hogs for fourteen days oh dry corn meal,
during which time they consumed forty
seven bushels and gained 535 pounds, or
eleven and three-fourths pounds to the
bushel. The same hogs, next fed four
teen days on corn meal and water mixed,
consumed 551 bushels of corn, and
gained 731 pounds, or thirteen and one
half pounds of pork to the bushel. He
then fed them fourteen days on corn
meal cooked, and, after consuming for
ty-five bushels of the cooked meal, the
hogs gained 799 pounds, or very near
fifteen pounds of pork to the bushel of
Dr. James holds that pleuro-pneu
monia, which is not mbe understood as
strictly a lung disease, is likely to be
met successfully by inoculation. The
plague, he says, is a local disease which
will develop in any vascular structure of
a susceptible animal. The germs in
haled into the lungs pray upon the lungs
alone, and if other germs- are placed
upon the raw surface of the tail they
will develop in the tail only, but in
both cases the disease affects the system
in such a way that the animal will not
again have the disease, however much it
may be exposed. If the tail is inoculated I
the st verity of the disease will depend
greatly upon the depth to which the
poison is planted. The exudation and
swelling rarely exceeds the size of a hen's !
egg. But in the lungs the air passages
are closed, preventing a free -ingress of
oxygen, and it is not uncommon for the
mass iif exudation to weigh as much as
thirty pounds, beside an enormous
liquid effusion in the pleura?. In Aus
tralia inoculation is clumsily but success
fully performed by drawing a worsted |
thread, smeared in the exudate, through j
the connecting tissue beneath the skin !
at the tail. This is a deep insertion, but i
the loose textuA of the worsted serves to
favor the admission of air and counter- i
act any dangerous change in the virus. |

"I want to say right here that no
healthy child can possibly catch dipth
theria : the child it attacks must first
have what is commonly called a cold or
a catarrh. A small piece of diphtheric
poison may be placed on a man's eye,
and, unless there is an abrasion of the
epidermis, he will not be affected. I
am promulgating very advanced ideas,
I am aware ; but I insist that neither
diphtheria, measles, or scarlet fever
can be acquired unless the conditions I
have named exist. I believe that cholera
might be traced in its infection to im
proper diet. In the Sixth ward, where
I live, diphtheria is very prevalent, and
three cases have terminated fatally
within 100 yards of my residence ; and,
just before coming here, I read the
statistics of a physician, whose ability
for observation cannot be questioned,
that, out of 508 cases of dipthetia, 508
had ended fatally. These 508 cases
were taken from epidemics of various
severities. In the northern part of the
city some of the children died within
twenty-four hours of the development '
of the disease. There is one thing
which it is due to ourselves and friends :
that we make understood: many physi- j
cians call diphtheria what is simply 1
some other throat disease; and, having !
cured the throat disease, they claim |
to having cured diphtheria, an ! the re
sult is that Mrs. Brown says to Dr.
Blank: 'Dr. Dash cured Smith's child
of diphtheria, but my child died on
your hands.' It's an advanced idea;
but it should be known that a throat i
disease which was cured was no diph
theria."—Dr. Cole, of St. Louis.
Of course, a pillow sham starched so
stiff it will stand alone is not a very
nice thing for a man to jam his head
against when he crawls into bed. But
there is no question but what a woman
can find a thousand and one reasons
why the pillow sham should be perpe
trated as a thing of beauty. The beau
tiful, clean, snowy white pillow shams,
looming up at the head of the bed, and
standing alone, look very pretty, and
the lady of the house is greatly pleased
with them. The men folks also find
them very handy to keep the hair oil off
the pillows, so their wives will not com
plain about their pillows being all
greased ov.-r with oil. Men can escape
ah hard feelings liable to be engendered
by negletvciiig to take off the shams
when retiring, and decking out the
lovely linen and fine lace, used in man
ufacturing the shams, with choice and
fragrant hair oil. And when he gets
tired of having his ears sawed off, by
coming in contact with the stiff linen,
and his cheek wore raw by the starch
and lace, he can gently slide the shams
to tie foot of the bed and jam his feet
asainst them to keep them :rom getting
up i". the night and walking all over
him. Even the most energetic pillow
sh .in will lose its energy and vital force
a ter being stamped and c umpled at
the foot of the bed under a man's feet.
he pillow-sham is not in any one's
war. to any orreat extent; the men can
get along with them and the women
can't get along without them, so the
pillow-sham will not be obliged to go.

Prepare the meat* by removing
the thin reddish skin in which they are
enveloped, and fill a tin tray to the
depth of about an inch. Pour over
them the hot candy, stirring the
meats that each one may be cov
ered. A little less candy should b«
used than will suffice to entirely cover
the mass of meats, though each sepa
rate one should be coated, the object
being to use just enough of the candy
to cause the meats to adhere firmly to
each other, thus forming a large cake,
which, when nearly cold, may be di
vided in squares or bars with a sharp
knife. Almonds or the meats of any
nuts may be prepared in the same way.
•-San Francisco Chronicle.
Of the underground railways of the
city of London some are beneath others
that are themselves below the surface,
their levels being at least forty feet from
that of ordinary street traffic. Within
six or seven miles of Charing Cross there
are 2GO miles of line in operation, and,
allowing for double tracks and sidings,
there are 750 miles enough to make a
straight line from the metropolis to
Thurso, in the extreme North of Scot
land. These lines are the property of
thirteen companies, but each possesses
by mutual arrangement on Parlia
mentary sanction the power of collect
ing and distributing traffic over other
lines. The London and Northwestern
trains run over forty -four miles of the
lines of five other companies; the Great
Northern Line, over- thirty-six of six
other companies; the Midland, over
thirty, one miles. Such, indeed, are the
facilities afforded in the metropolis for
the interchange of traffic, that if a body
of troops were sent from Colchester to
Portsmouth there are seven different
railway routes through London, anyone
of which could be taken. The Midland
has eleven stations in the metropolis,
the Great Western twelve, the London
a'"l Northwestern thirteen, the South
eastern twenty, and the Great Eastern
forty. The different companies have of
their own 245 stations, of joint stations
43, of stations on other companies' lines
210— in all, nearly 500, exclusive of
goods, coal and cattle depots. It is esti
mated that the number of passengers
using these stations is 750,000 a day, the
Metropolitan alone averaging 180,000
every week day, while the journeys
taken by season ticket-holders are sim
ply incalculable. Of the Metropolitan
stations for long-distance traffic Pad
dington is the most important. With
regard to the number of trains several
stations have 500 each, Liverpool street
has nearly 700, Moorgate street over 800
a day, and Victoria more than 1,100, or
an average of sixty-one an hour for
eighteen hours. The passenger trains
within the metropolis run a distance of
35,000 miles every week day, or 11,000,
-000 miles a year. More than £50,000,
-000 of capital is invested in them. —
