Questions ami Answers. Is there any remedy against the ap pearance of weevil iu wheat about tho close of harvest ? When ricking the wheat scatter fresh slaked lime enough to whiteu the stack between every two or thveo courses of sheaves. When the wheat has been thrashed from tho shock throw limo over it, and Bhove.l it through tho grain. Can a farm bo rid of thistles ? This question id answered a great many times eue'u season. Among the more popular modes of eradicating thistles is tho one that effects it with hoed crops ; also another which consists in letting the land lie idle one set son that is, free from crops and constantly plow and harrow it. Can a horse be broken of tho habit of overreaching f This has been done by placing tho shoes exactly opposite to tho usual rales; raise the heels of the fore shoes os much as is consistent with your ideas of right, and lower the heels of the hind shoes the same way ; this tends to hasten tho fore feet and retard the hind ones, allowing the former to get ont of tho way in time for a clean reach for tho latter. Which is the best shape for a stackf Au ecK shape is considered the best form for a stack ; inexperienced farmers are liable to build too high and to run their stacks up to a spire like point, in which case the top generally blows off nud tho whole thing is unsightly. A stacker fchould bear in mind that it is the pitch of tho sheaf and not tho pitch of tho top which renders it waterproof. In stacking keep the centers full, as this gives th outside c ourses a steep pitch. Always have the tops of the bheaves point to tho center. Do bees injure fruit f This oft-repeated question was answer ed recently by Professor O. F. Reiley at tho Uee-Keepers' Couucil in St. Louis. He said that the construction of a bee's mouth is similar to that of a wasp's, aud that both are capable of injuring fruit ; this the wasp often does, but the bees but rarely, excepting, indeed, in times of severe drought. He did not consider this fact as any argument against the usefulness of the insect, as the exercise of its power as a pollenizer is of great value to the orchardist, even though it occasionally commits depre dations upon fruit. To Dry Sweet Corn. Select ears of corn that are just right for the tablo, husk them, throw them into boiling water, and let them boil hard five minutes ; then cut the coru from the ear, spread it evenly and thin ly on earthen or new tin dishes, and subject it i:t once to the heat of the morn ing suu, or place it in an oven of un varying temperature, where the prooess of drying will begin at once and be promptly completed. The sooner it ia dried after it is cut from the cob the bettor, slid the sooner it is prepared after it is gathered the better. , The Amcrlcniv Tropic. I bad heard of the degeneration of your stock from .the English typo, says Prof. Huxley, of England, in a lecture at Buffalo. I have not perceived it. Some years ago one of your most dis tinguished mon of letters, eqnally loved and admired in England and America, expressed an opinion which touched English feeling somewhat keenly that there was a difference between your women and ours after reaching a cortain ago. He said our English women wore " beefy." That is his word, not mine. Well, I have studied the aspect of the peoplo that I have met here in steam boats and railway carringes, and 1 meet with just the same faces, the main dif ference as to tho men being iu the way of shaving. Though I should bo sorry to nse tho word which Hawthorne did, yet in respect to stature for line portly women, I think the average hero fully as great as on the other side. Some people talk of the injurious iuflnonoe of climate. 1 have seuu no trace of the "North American typo." You have among you the virtue which is most no table anions savapjes, that of hospitality. You take us to a bountiful dinner, and are not quite satisfied nuloss we take with us the plates and spoons. Anothrr feature has impressed itself upon rro I have visited soruo of your great uni versities and met men as well known iu the old world as iu the new. I find cer tain differences hero. The Euglish uni versities are the product of government, 'vours of private munificence. That Htuoutr us is almost unknown. Tho gen eral notion of an EuRlishmau when ho trets rich is to found an estate and bene lit his family. Tho general notion" of au American, when fortunate, is to do something for the good of the people aud from which benetits shall continue to flow. Tho la ter is tin nobler am bition. It is popularly said abroad that you have no antiquities in America. If yon talk about tho trumpery of threo or four thousand years of history, it is true But, iu the large sense as referring to time before man made his momentary appearance, America is the place to study the antiquities of the globe. Tho reality of tho enormous rmouut of ma teri.d here has far surpassed my nntici- pation. I havo studied the collection gathered by Professor Marsh at New Haven. There is none like it in Europe, not enly in e;tont of time covered, but by reason of its bearing on the problem of evolution ; whereas, before this col lection was made evolution was a matter of speculative reasouing, it is now matter of fact nnd history as much as the monuments of Egypt. In that col lection are the facts of the succession of forms and the history of their evolutiou. AT A JAPAXESE INX. Tho Diamond Field. Tho Oil City Derrick gives this little story in three chapters : CHAPTER I. "This, then, Miss Bangs, is yonr' flual answer?" " Irrevocably so," was tho proud reply. CHAPTER II. They made a pretty picture standing in the doorway of her father's mausion; he, tho captain of tho Melon Stealers, tall and strong in limb, and the hero of his littlo llrst base iu many a hot contested gamo. She tha fair urughter of tho banker who had wager ed the entire assets of the bank aud tho deposits of many a poor man on tho re turn gamo between the Moth Eradica tors and the homo club on tho following day. Our hero's answer came hot and quick : " Then," cried he, " to-morrow's getting sun will shiue upou tho beggar daughter of a ruined man. 1 1 rests with me to throw tho game on which your proud father's wealth is staked. You have to-night settled yonr own fate. So be it. Good-night; " and turning him self seven times round on his heel,nt the same time boring a largti hole in the hall carpet, Mose t'itz Allen was gone. CHAPTER III. Prominent among tho immense crowd assembled on the ground is tho pule face of Amelia Bangs. The Moth Eradioators are at the bat on the last half of tho ninth inning, with two men out and one man on the third, and the score stands 53 to 53. "Will that man get in ?" is the breathless question which pervades the scene. Mose Fitz Allen, standing on the first ba'e, mut ter : " Now for revenge I Now do I givo the thing away! JhY uid his facewa distorted with i-jsslon like a mud ball dried in tho sun. " Two strikes!" yells the umpire. The batter must hit it next time. Ho does hit it, and a fly mounts nnd descends beauti fully to Mo?e. "Take it, Mose," goes out from the throat of Banker Bangs and hundreds of his friends. "Not if Moso is thoroughly acquaiutod with him self," is Lis low response, aud the ball passes through his hands and tho man on third goes homo. Score, 51 to 53. CHAPTER IV. Two months later fiuds Amelia Bangs taking iu plain sewing, her father the janitor of the oil exchange, and Mose, though somewhat troubled in mind, btill takes his beer. Children Duprlrrd i t Vinton Ihnt they May Heroine Arrcplnble Nhnmpoorrs. The Kama Kara correspondent of the San Francisco Chronicle writes as fol lows: Wo eutered the village, which was once a city containing over a mil lion inhabitants, and put up at a native hotel kept in native style. Again obey ing the custom of undressing the feet, we passed many guests sitting upon mats and making their chopsticks fly in a way that would make a Yankee en vious even in a railroad eating house. Up stairs we went, and were shown into a room whose walls consisted merely of paper, partitioning one room from tho otlier.but which were scrupulously clean. Urdering supper and some native wine, we were quickly served by a rather good looking maid. While awaiting the result of our order we were served with " tidbid pastry aud with some sack eo, also a bowl con taining live coals, together with pipes; after which, giving us time for a smoke, the courses broan with fish, not cooked enough for our taste, then eggs, chicken, sweet potatoes, nn", and tea. JNo hread wns served us, nor butter, but as tho tea was remarkably line, aud tue eggs, though small, were duly seRsonod with rock salt, wo mado a good meal, ren dered awkward by lack of experience i'i using the chopsticks, which wore pencil shaped nud UHed by holding or pressing the food between the ends, the gueBts meanwhile peeping through tho parti tions aud giggling nt our frantic efforts to eat gracefully. While eating supper tho governor of the place scut a constable to obtaiu our names aud residence, that we might bo undor police protection, wo being tho first white men thut ever spent a night in the place. Supper being ovor, we took a short walk through tho town, and as there were many pilgrims in tho place who had never se u a Caucasian before, we were the " observed of all observ ers," especially our friend, au English man, who is siz feet two inches in his stocking feet, making him a giant among them. Going back to the hotel, our friend asked us if we wished a bath and sham-, poo; answering in tho affirmative, he gave the order, nnd hearing a long, low and somewhat sod whistle, which we hid heard both by day end by nigtit in Yokohama and which, though it had excited our curiosity, wo had failed to inquire tho reason of ho wont into the street and brought iu a blind man, Tho he said was to do the shampooing. The bath being ready, wo went down stairs aud were shown into a room, whose wet floor proved it to be m constant uso. After finishing our bath wo donned our gowns and returned to ouv room, wuere tho "blind man look us in charge. Commencing with our feet, he Knuckled us all over, prying in between every joint and muscle of our back and limbs, excepting tho region of the chef t, nn.t which, after ho was through, mado ns feel as limber as nn acrobat. These shampooers, it is said, are mado blind iu their childhood, that they may ply their vocation without injuring tho sus ceptibilities of any one. The suu rose unclouded on the following morning, aud after a breakfast served on tho floor, similar in quality to the supper of the evening bt lore, we pant our bill, which amounted to gl.70 this for both of us, The Man in the Moon. Not a Servian Victory. A disp .toll to the London Standard from Alexinatz says authentio accounts show that the battle which was claimed as a success by Tchernayeff, really re sulted iu a victory for the Turks. Fazyl Pasha, commander of the division of the right wing, on Thursday, fearing an attack in the rear, fell back". The Ser vians attacked all along the line on Fri diy, but the Turks drove them back. There was heavy lighting on Saturday, but, after five hours' incessant conflict, Tohernayeff's attempt to cut off Fazyl Pasha from Eyoub Pasha failed, and the Turks were completely victorious. The Standard's correspondent with Ali Sib, on the left bank of the Morava, opposite Alexinatz, reports that the Servians were repulsed with great loss on Saturday, after eeven hours' fighting. The Servians have claimed this battle as a sweeping victory. A Belgrade special dispatoh says Tchernayeff s accounts of bis victories era now generally discredited. Hidden Treasure. Geld hunters who still dream of find ing the treasure of Capt. Kidd should read tho story that comes from Indiana and be encouraged. In the little town of Eminence, about twenty-five miles southwest of Indianopolis, two Indians called at a farmer's house early in the evening and asked the way to a certain tree. Proper directions were given and the Indians departed. Never having seen his callers before, the farmer was curious to know their object, and went to the tree by a short road and hid him self in the bushes near by. Soon the Indians came, lantern in hand. They dug a hole ia the ground on one side of the tree they seemed to know the very place to dig and to the blank amaze ment of the farmer found a copper chest two feet square, opened it by the light of the lantern, and took out several bags of gold which they at once poured into a strong sack provided for the purpose. Astoundtd at the sight, the farmer jumped from bis hiding place toward the men, but in an instant the light went out, all was darkness, and the In dians disappeared throueh the bushes. He estimates that $10,000 were found in the chest, and it is believed the treas ure was secreted there many years ago by some ancestor of the Indians in his flight before the enemy. Plutarch's dialogue on Tho Visage that is seen in the Moon's Disk," says Popular Science Monthly, has ever been regarded as containing tho sum and snbstauce of all man's notions and knowledge of our satellite down to the period when it was written. The very title is provocative of mirth to us, the children of tho modern time. Tho vis ago in the moon ! Nowadays it only suggests to the poot aud tueartist satiri cal ideas; in olden times it was the starting point of profound meditations, which aro held not to be unworthy of being attributed to the most famous philosophers and mathematicians of the day. The author nrst, iu all earnest ness, demonstrates the absurdity of the opinion which asserts tho hguro appear ing iu tho moon to be nothing else than an optical illusion arising from Iho visual sense being dazzled by the bright ness of tho moon's disk. Next we have a lengthy refutation of another opinion which says that tho visage in the moon is the reflection of our ocean. Among other reasons given to 6how tho er roneousne.ss of this opiniou is this, that there is only one ocean, and that, if tho visago in tho moon wcro a reflection of it, tuen tho ocean must bo mado up of parts separated from ono another by isthmuses and continents. The third opiuion combated by Plutarch is to tho effect that the moon is a mixture of air and a mild kind of fire; as sometimes during a perfect culm tho surfaso of a body of water becomes ruffled a thing itself to be demonstrated so, too, does the air assume a blackish color; thus is explained the appearance as of a human face in tho moon. The hypothesis of tho Stoics, who affirmed the moon to be a glube of fire, on the surface of which rests the atmosphere, is rejected on the ground that in that case the moon would need some matter whereon to rest, and from which it might derive fuel for its fire. We are informed that, according to Pindar, the earth is popped up all round by pillars with bases of adamant, whereas, according to the Stoics, she has no need of supports, being situate iu the center of the universe toward which all things tend. This last reason is declared to be untenable, because the earth, whoso surface is so broken with elevations and depressions, must then be considered as spherical, and that would imply the existence of antipodes clambering up and down the earth's sidos like lizards. Grasshoppers In the Northwest. A correspondent at Brainerd, Minn., writing in regard to the damage done by the grasshoppers along the line of the Northern I'uuiuo runrond, says: In the immediate vicinity of Wadena crops are remarkably tine, having suffered no in jury from either grasshoppers or cli matio causes. Wheat will ruu over twenty bushels to the acre, other crops in proportion. The southern half of Otter lail eounty will give an average of from ten to twelve bushels, about half a crop. Want of rain there in the early part of the season damaged the crops fully as much as the hoppers. The northern part of the county will givo well up to from sixteen to cighteon bushels of wheat to the acre. The southeast corner of Becker county will give a full crop, the remainder of the county from one-half to three-fourths. Some of the best informed men in tho county are estimating the average loss to the county at from fifteen to twenty- live per cent., leaving tho county irom fifteen to seventeen bushels to tho aero. Clay county will lose but little; twenty per cent, of nn average crop is a large estimate of its loss. The lied river val ley, in Dakota, will not lose au average of two bushels per acre, which from Ida that will rango from twenty to thirty bushels to the acre is no loss to spetik of. As a rule, farmers are prono to overestimate suppored damage to crops from any cause. They gouerally turn out hotter than expected, and I am inclined to think it will be ho this year. Iu localities where tho hoppers worked they cleared somo fields entire, but this is au exception; a few only will not pay to harvest. Oat and barley holds sutler ed tha most. Immediately on the line of tho road, the fields in tue vicinity of Luke Park wero hurt tho most, somefew small lots being completely taken, tho majority, liowever, having halt a crop yet left. Mr. Cnutteld is tho heaviest loser, yet he will, without doubt, har vest from 5.0U0 to 6,000 bushels, per haps more. 1 met him lately, and ho is not discouraged, bit proposes to fight it out, although admitting that the loss is a sol ious thing for bim. Mr. Engle brouner will get half a crop from his 1,600 acres, that is, some 15,000 bushels. Mr. Von Vusengen will also get from 7,000 to 8,000 bushels from his 700 ncres. Mr. Tenuey should realize lully 15,000 bushels from the 1,000 acres he uaa in wheat; his losses, it any, how ever, will be more the result ol late sowing than from grasshoppers. Jt rom tho Cass and Cherry lauds, Dalrymplo will probably get from tho 1,280 acres some Vid.UUU bnsUels, an average ol eighteen to tho acre, his foreman put ting it at twenty. Mosner, Dunlop, Morris, aud others in that locality, will do equally as well, ltichland county, particularly in its southern part, loses a portion of its general average on nc- count of dry weather iu the early sum mer. There wiib no iuiury from the grasshoppers. Traill county will give its usual averngo, over twenty bushels tj tho acre. Notwithstanding the visi tation of tho potts, 'Red river valley will sustain its reputation this year, and re suits will enable us, by comparison with other localities, to keep our flags flying high over tho whole Northern Faciho country. With all losses our surplus crop will be greater by fully fifty per cent, than that of last year. Un tho line of the Southern Pacific and Pacific, and from that road to the southern line of the State, the crops will be but about one-half of the geueral average. With ua it will run from eighty to eighty-hve per cent. Oriental Manicrg. Mr. Edward King writes; The Orien tals at the Exhil itiou are a perpetual source of smnsenieiit. Their mild and pleasant ways, even when they are en gaged in disputes, seem very funny to the Western Cancaaittrj. Their profuse gestures and their picturesque costumes have now beoomo so common that even the visitors from the country do not long stare at them. But their manners of thought are ever new fountains of de light tor our people who oome into con tact with them. Their ideas of our civi lization are so totally different from our own, and often so much loss favorable, that we can hardly fail from time to time to bo shocked, but in general their curi ous views of thingi provoke only a smile. Tho Cypriote Greek who brought me my coffee one evening at the Turkish cafe answered, when 1 asked him how he liked America: "Hoi Merika good place to make a money, not place to live I" Then drawing n long breath, he added: " Breathe, n. t live," by which remark I suppose he meant to express the idea that mere existenoo was not life, and that tho only life worth having was tho sensuous, favored one of his own it ucious climate. An American friend related to mo his experience in studying the character of a very well bred Turk, who lives ia tho sarao hotel witd him. This Turk, who is beginnirg to speak a littlo English, is nn affable, amiable, round faced, well dressed gentleman, who does not seem capable of harming a fly. But the other day my friend seeing tho account in tho morning paper of tho terrible massaero in Bulgaria, read them aloud to tho Turk, expecting from him somo deprecatory remarks. Nono came; tho Turk smiled sweetly as ho heard the thrilling accounts of children impaled upon bayonets, women sti angled, and men hanged, and, nibbing his hands, he said: ' Much good, kill more, stop war soon." Then, suiting the action to the word, ho went through tho motions of tossing a child on a bayonet, aud burst into laughter, saying: " Much good, that make them much afraid." After which ho went on tranquilly eating his breakfast, as if his sentiments were quite natural and justihablo. . The Sioux Indians. Moncure D.

There is one soene which, since the piece be gan, has turned to irony that in which three white tourists conquer and exter minate a picturesque and well armed troup of Sioux. There are about thirty savages to the three whites, and the red men are all killed. 1 he scene was ro ceived with silence, except when the Bionx chief delivered a haraugue cou ceruing the wronprs which his race had endured, and his eloquence elicited a round ol applause. It is douuttui whether the Sioux side of the battle that followed would not have been rep resented somewhat differently if the piece had been mounted since the ro cent tidincs from America. To me it brought back a once pleasant, now pain f al, remembrance of a dinner table con- vernation with General Custer at bt. Paul, in February last, when he was ou his way to the frontier. I asked his beautiful young wife whether she did not feel appreheusivo or nervous at goieg so far beyond the borders of civilization. Suo replied, cheerfully: " Not in the least," und soemed to look forward with almost girlish delight and expectation to tho new scenes amid which she was about toresido. But her husband looked grave as ho listened to her answer. The tragedy which has since occuirea nas awakened a deep aud widespread inter est iu r rauce as well as England. It has been for tome time a prevalent belief among tho geographical aud an thropological savansol both lionclon and l'aris that the white Americans nave un derrated the difliculties of their Indian problem. The hostilo Indians are said to be only a tew hundred thousand m number, but even so many are declared by some good judges to be too numerous for extermination, when their ferocity exceeds their love of life, and when they aro intrenched in wild regions difficult of access. A Chinese Elopement. ChineRe elopements are well managed. None but the lazy deserve the fair; tliere is neither ladder nor trellis to bo scaled; aud the old gentleman is easily persuad ed that whatever is, is right. There was Ho, the laziest wight of Hangehow, who lived by odd jobs, aud never could get regular employment. One night, while ho was drinking tea in a wavsnloiun, he boasted that he would never do another day's woik unless he could find a rich employer with pretty daughters. An old screw named Tsiang, who overheard the remark, was so enraged by it that he engaged ail tho laborers who wero pres ent except Ho, and refused to give him even a night's lodging. Poor Ho went to sleep in Xsiuug s back yard, and very mournful was he. Suddenly a great bundle of clothes was thrown out of a window. Thinking there were thieves in the houe, aud not being in a mood to protect the farmer's household, he put the bundle on bis back and trudged down the road with it Soon ho heard steps behind him. The infuriated farm er t Not so. It was only a pretty girl Sue joined him and walked by his side without saying a word or looking up at him. On they went through tho dark night, mile after mile, aud just as the day was breaking they reached the vil lage inn. Then sho looked at him and shrieked. It was not tho young cousin who had wooed Lor to pack up her clothes and meet him at midnight. It wa3 only poor lazy Ho. " Well, well, she said ; "there is no help for it. We must get married as soon as possible, Married they were; the old gentleman behaved nicely; dowry, $300,000. Stats Kxtra t 1 Whet Hod Wi stem 91 !). Hprlns. Bye H(3!i Barley state...... ..

Hl .v I II,, N- Vurh ni.il I lilr-iRO. Sensible' Advice. Mr. Eafkin, in a recent number ol Fort Clavigera, gives his youug lady reaJerH eooie sensible advice respecting dress. Among other suggestions, he says: "Tour walking dress must never touch the ground at all. I have lost much of the faith I once had in the common sense and even in the personal delicacy of the present race of the Englishwomen, by seeing how they will allow their dresses to sweep the streets, as it is the fashion to be scavengers." Owning a Home. The strength of the American repub lic ia the universal desire to own a home. It is molding all the people, native and foreign born, into one' homogeneous mats. The ownership of a home is something of which neither the Irii-h nor the Uerman laborer have, in thtir own oountry, any conception; but here it is tue goal of tneir iiopes and desires. Education comes next; it is a some thing the need of which is not felt until the adornments of nome are tnougnt of, This desire to own the roof under which one sleeps is distinctively an American characteristic, and seems by nature adapted to the growth which u raising us iu importance in the scale ol nation. It is the link which connects the man with the government; it adds to bis in terest in the making and execution of the laws, and identifies him with tho usages and customs of the people. It is this element which gives the people of Switzerland their unity and power, and the lack of it causes nine-tenths of the unrest in Ireland. No feeling is stronger than the attachments of home, and no nation whose people possess this as a common sentiment can lose its liber ! ties. Women In the Servian War. Women play a prominent part in the Tnrco-Seivian war, says a correspondent of a iioudon paper. A number ol Rus sian ladies have manifested their svm pathy for tho Servian causo by deeds as well as words. " A lew nights ago, he writes, "I returned from'Semliu with a middle need lady, who was chaperoned by a youijg boy, her son, and the Rus sian consul himself. I ultimately ascer tained that the lady in question was Mine. Tichatoff, tho wife of a Muscovite official, who was merely the forerunner of a whole colony of her friends, all be longing to the best society, accustomed to luxury nnd refinement, who are, nevertheless, resolved to face the horrors of the battlefield. Oue must have lived for some time iu Servia, and traveled in the interior of the country, to form an idea of the privations and hardships which await theso brave nurses. Mos- luitoe.s abound, fevers are everywhere prevalent, food is of the worst descrip tion and the water hardly drinkable. To devote oneself in such circumstances to tend tho wounded is to accomplish a piom and touching work of abnegation. trom other quarters it ia stated thai tne St. Petersburg nud Moscow societies are sending officers, surceous, and Sisters of Mercy to Servia, aud, most important ot all, (Jen. Tchernayeli received an ad dress signed by all the officers ot a cor tain Russian regiment." $3 W VmiK. A Great (Sensation. SampU Watrh and Outfit free to Ai'n. Better than Gold. Address A.

An English lady ha been looking about Montenegro, and her reports are not flattering to the insurgents. Her sympathies are with them and against tue Turks, but the nictures she draws of the people and their ravage manners are not fascinating. They are heroio, no doubt, aud full of patriotism, but one can hardly call them interesting, or care to have them for intimate associates, She found the women in Montenegro in an utterly degraded condition, only two of them able to read and write. These were the wives of the prince and of the president of the Senate, and even thev Lave to do the household c joking and to wait at the table. Tho women in general do all the hard work in the fields as well as in the house, and the men touch none of the burdens even with their lingers. She saw women stagger ing under heavv loads while the men walked beside them without thought of pity or of help. The Montane. Tin war rior was evidently " a fancy ariicle that ought not to be expected to do anything save fifirht in war and saunter about in his splendor in time of peace." The women, though poor and half starved, have a great love for finery. They go about in rags, but keen their cnpi oover- ed with silver chains aud coin. Hoiue of them Lave ornaments that a duchess might envy. JWMTl A.-! 'ri-.I llfcll HSKT.-l,Hllr' 7 Orifflnnl 41 -111 uirlil . (Ure irnarAnteed for Sweaty, Tender, and jTe-i(ifve Vee. Kent ly mall.

A Chinaman went into a dry goods store in Denver, and looked around with those oblong eyes, cut the wrong way of the leather. "What do you want, John?" said an affable gentleman.
