>iult <tn Wheat.
Mr. W. 0. Fish, of Onondago county
X. Y.,gives the (V,y Gent (cm an the
f dlowing report of hi? experiments in
sowing salt on spring wheat. It is evident
that his success comes mainly fr? a
the power of the salt to attract and retain
the moisture of the atmosphere. He
says: "For over twenty-five years'
farmiug on soil too hot and dry for
spring wheat to till well (in the usual
manner of cultivation), it proved a very
uncertain crop. Becoming nearly discouraged
in trying o rais.i it, I began
four years ago sowing salt. The first
year three buslii Is were scattered 011 the
ground, just as the wheat was fairly up
and the ground was dry. Twenty-five
bushels per acre was the first year's
yield. The second year four bushels of
salt were sown, and twcnty-niue bushels
of plump wheat were raised to the acre.
The third experiment was four bushels
of salt, and thirty of wheat to the acre.
For the pa*t summer in Onondaga
county the thermometer has marked
eighty degrees and upward l'or thirtyeight
days, fifteen of which were over
ninety degrees, and it was a scorching
time for spring grain. For the first !
trial I drilled, on six acres of corn stubble
ground, one and three-fourths bushels
of wheat, and sowed six bush* Is of
salt broadcast to the acre. A strip was
left without tiny suit, which was very
light. Oil this ground the dew dri?>d oiv
quicker and the wheat headed out two

ored and badly crinkled down. The
yield this year was tweuty-six bushels
per acre."
For WouiiiIn.
A correspondent- semis the following:
A few weeks since as I was driving in an
open wagon, my horse took fright and
the bit broke, so I was entirely sit the
mercy of circumstances. I was thrown
from the \\jpgon, mv face severely cut
and scratched and my bodv sadly
bruised. 1 insisted on walking homo so
as to keep my blood in vigorous circulation,
and not allow my fall and bruises
to stiffen me. On my arrival at home I
had the glue pot put on the stove, and
after washing my wounds carefully covered
them with old linen on which the
glue had been spread. All pain ceased
from the moment of the application, and
in un hour from the time of the accident
I was at my work again. The wound*
healed without any scar, and wore not
disturbed in any way. As fast as they
got well and the linen peeled up I cut it
off with scissors. For many years I have
tried the virtue of glue in slight abrasions,
but this test of its value as a healing
application I thought worth giving
to your readers.

To the fonate of the United State#:
I follow the example heretofore occasionally
presented of communicating in this
mode my approval of the act to provide
for and regulate the counting of the
vote for President and Vice-President,
and the decision of questions arising
thereon, because of my appreciation of
the imminent peril to the institutions of
the country, from which, in my judgment,
the act provides a wise and constitutional
means of escape. For the first
time in the history of our country under
the Constitution as it now is, a dispute
exists with regard to the result of the
election ojj the Chief Magistrate of the
nation. It is understood that upon the
disposition of disputes touching the electoral
votes cast at the late election by
- L< il._ DI..I 1 1.1.1
OllP Or more OI lilt* nuuva unpeuurs Hie
question whether one or the other of tiie
candidates for the Presidency is the lawful
Chief Magistrate. TLe importance
of having clearly ascertained by n procedure
regulated by law which of
the two citizens lias been elected, and of
having thd right of this high office recognized
and cheerfully agreed in by all
the people of the republic, cannot be
overestimated, and leads me to express
to Congress and to the nation my great
satisfaction at the adoption of a measure
that affords an orderly means of decision
of a gravely exciting question.
While the history of our country in
its earlier period shows that the president
of the Senate has counted the Totes
and declared their standing, our whole
history shows that in no instance of
doubt or dispute has he exercised the
power of deciding, and that the two
houses of Congress have disposed of all
such doubts and disputes, although in
no instance hitherto have they been
such that their discussion could essentially
have aileeted the result. For the
first time then the government
of the United States is now brought
to meet the question as one
vital to the result, and this under
conditions not the best calculated
to produce an agreement,
or to induce calm feeling in the several
l>rauches of the government or among
the ueonle of the countrv. In a case
whore jih now tlie result is involved, it is
the highest duty of the law-making
power to provide in advance a constitutional,
orderly, and just method of executing
the Constitution in this most interesting
and critical of its provisions.
The doing so, far from being a compromise
of l ight, is an enforcement of right
and an execution of powers conferred by
the Constitution in Congress. I think
that this orderly method has been secured
by the bill, which, appealing to
the Constitution and the law as the
guide in ascertaining rights, provides a
means of deciding questions of single
returns through the direct action of
Congress, and iu respect to double
returns by a tribunal of inquiry
whose decision shall stand unless
both houses of Congress shall concur
in determining otherwise, thus securing a
definite disposition of all questions of
dispute in whatever aspect they may
arise. With or without this law, as all
of the States have voted, and as a tie vote
is impossible, it must be that one of the
two candidates has been elected, and it
would be deplorable to witness an irregular
controversy as to which of the two
should receive or wiucn suoiuu continue
to Ik>ld the office.
Iu all periods of history controversies
have arisen as to the succession or choice
of the chiefs of States, and no party or
citizen loving the country and its free institutions
can sacrifice too much of mere
feeling in preserving through the upright
course of law their country from the
smallest danger to its peace on such au
occasion. And it cannot be impressed
too firmly in the hearts of all the people
that true liberty and real progress can
exist only through a cheerful adherence
to constitutional law. The bill purports
to provide only for the settlement of questions
arising ?rom the recent election.
The fact that such questions can arise
demonstrate the necessity, which I cannot
doubt will before long be supplied, of
permanent general legislation to meet
cases which have not been contemplated
in the Constitution or laws of the country.
The bill may not be perfect and its
provisions, may not be such as would be
best applicable to all future occasions, but
it is calculated to meet the present condition
of the questions and ol' the country.
The country is agitated. It needs aid,
it desires peace and quiet and harmony
between all parties and all sections. Its
industries are arrenieu, iuiku* uiujuipiiMod,
capital idle, ami enterprise paralyzed
by reason of the doubt and anxiety attending
the uncertainty of u double claim
to the Chief Magistracy of the nation. It
wants to be assured that the result of the
election will be accepted without resistance
from the supporters of the disappointed,
candidates, and that i*s highest
officer shall not hold his place with a
questioned title of right.
Relieving that the bill will secure these
ends, I give it my signature.

How the Indians Climb Trees.
In South America even the weakest
woman may be nut uncommonly seen
plucking The; fruit at the tree tops. If
the bark is ho smooth and slippery that
they cannot go up by climbing, they use
other means. They make a hoop of
wild vines, and putting their feet inside
they use it as a support in climbing.
The negro of the west coast of Africa
makes s: larger ho >p?arouud the tre?,
and gets inside it, and jerks it up the
tree with his h inds, a little at a time,
drawing his legs up alter it. The Tahitian
boys tie their feet together, four or
live inches apart, with a piece of palm
bark, and with the aid of this fetter go
up the cocoa palms to gather nuts. The
native women of Australia climb the gum
trees after opposums; where tlie bark is
rough they Chop holes with a hatchet,
then one throws about the tree a rope
twice as long as will go around it, puts
her hatchet on her cropped- head, and,
placing her feet against the tree and
grasping tli" rope with her hands, she
hitches it up by jerks, and pulls herself
up the enormous trunk almost as fast as
a man will climb a ladder.
If is Patent Nose.
In the battle of Gettysburg a soldier
received a saber cut across the face which
mowed off a section of his nose. He was
taken in hand by a Parisian artist, who
restored the nose to lifelike proportions.
Tn the composition of the artificial organ
rubber and gum wore used, and the nose
maker did not think it necessary to caution
the nose buyer against a temperature
of one hundred aud eighty-five degrees
Fahr. The soldier took a Turkish
bath in Han Francisco, :uid on looking hi
a mirror after a long bake in the hottest
room, discovered that his nose was blistered,
bulged, puckered, shapeless. It
was impossible to detach the artificial
section, ami the poor iMlow will have to
g? to Paris to have it repaired.
Plunket was once engagetl in a ease,
when, toward the eud of the afternoon,
it became a question whether the court
should proceed or adjourn till the next
day. Plunket expressed his willingness
to go on if the jury would " set." " Sit,
sir, sit," said the presiding judge, "not
'set'; hens set." "I thank yon, my
lord," said Plunket. The case proceeded,
and presently the judge had occasion to
observe that if that were the case he
fwireil the action would not "lay.
"Lie, my lord, lie," exclaimed the barrister,
" not ' lay'; hens lay."

War?Opinion* Banerl on English
I wish, as a lover of fair play ami a
friend of the Russian people, to join
Mr. Burritt in begging the readers of the
Tribune not to accept English statements
of Russian motives and Russian occurrences
as either fair or trustworthy. It
is the misfortune of Russia to have a
language which is so difficult of acquirement
that few West-Europeans or Americans
ever learn it. Her periodical literature,
therefore, is practically to all the
rest of the world a sealed book, and the
scanty information which Americans get
ui. i
wiidi irymu iaj 4.vur?ouiii uikujlo ujiiicd
through the medium of an unsympathetic
and prejudiced, if not a hostile
press. No other European nation labors
under this great disadvantage. American
opinions upon Russian topics, such
as the Polish question, Siberian exile,
the Central Asian question, and the Caucasian
war, are based upon information
which has been obtained exclusively from
English sources, and they are inaccurate
and unfair, as only opinions founded/m
ex parte statements can be. Even when
English journals intend to be reasonably
truthful and impartial in their comments
upon Russian affairs, their representations
are more or less tinged with partisan
prejudice. " The Smithate of
truth"?to use a metaphor of Oliver
Wendell Holmes?"is never the same as
the Brownate of truth," and a Russian
fact dissolved in the British mind seems
to acquire almost inevitably new properties,
so thnt when it crystallizes again in
expression it has an entirely new set of
facets and angles.
As an illustration of the great wrong
which is done Russia, in accepting English
accounts of her movements, and
English interpretations of her motives,
let me recall for a moment her famous
war with the mountaineers of the Caucasus?a
war whose origin, history and
results, I have studied on the ground.
How was that war represented in America
? It was declared by English newspapers
to be a cruel and unprovoked assault
upon a brave, noble and independent
people, whose only crime was their
love of liberty.
It was prompted, they said, by that
insatiate ambition and that lust of conquest
which are the guiding principles
of Russian policy, and it was carried on
with the brutality and obstinacy which
are the distinguishing traits of th^ Russian
character. In vain the " brave but

uiuurwiuui/i- v/iiuiKXUiiuo, UXIYCU aum uue
mountain peak took refuge upon another;
tliey "were pursued, surrounded, and exterminated
with relentless ferocitv."
Their final subjugation was, according
to the British press, a crimo against
which all Christendom ought.to protest.
Now, what are the facts from the
Russian point of view ? At the beginning
of the present century the Caucasian
mountain range was inhabited by
2,000,000 . - more hardy, brave, cruel
Moliammeda. brigands. ' They had
been at war among themselves or with
their neighbors for a thousand years.
Feuds were their only inheritance?retaliation
and blood revenge their only
legal remedies, pljiuder their principal
means of subsistence. Immediately
south of this mountain range lay a series
of fertile cultivated valleys, inhabited by
a civilized Christian people known as
the Georgians. Over the heads of these
Georgians the Caucasian mountaineers
hung like a living sword of Damocles,
and as often as that terrible sword fell it
filled the sunny valleys of Kakhetia with
the smoke of burning villages, and reddened
the clefir Georgian streams with
the best Christian blood Almost every
foot of the beautiful country lying north
of the River Kur was ravaged anil desolated
by raiding bands of Caucasian
horsemen, who came down from a height
of 10,000 feet like a mountain storm,
swept the green valleys of the Kur and
the Alazan with fire and sword, and then
vanished up some dark ravine, carrying
with them scores of wretched captives,
and leaving behind them nothing but
the smoking ruins of Georgian farmhouses.
Hundreds of Christian families were
annually carried up into the mountains
of Daghestan as slaves, and the youngest
and most beautiful of the women
were passed along the range to the
Black sea coast, where they were sold to
the agents of Turkish harems. So terrible
a scourge did these raids of the
Caucasian mountaineers become to the
inhabitants of the Georgian valleys that
the last Georgian king, after repeatedly
imploring the assistance and protection
of the Russian empress, Catharine II.,
finally in 1801 abdicated his throne in
favor of her successor, Paul II. He
wrote to the latter a mournful letter, recounting
the misfortunes and sufferings
oi ins unnappy people, pieaiung cue
claims of Christian brother]lood, and
ending with the pathetic cry: " For
God's sake liolp ns ! The kingdom of
Georgia has ceased to exist; it lias been
carried away captive into the mountains
of the Caucasus."
Russia responded promptly to this
call for aid. Six or seven battalions of
Russian infantry moved up the Georgian
valley from the Caspian sea coast,
and notice was given to the Caucasian
mountaineers that their raids into territory
which now belonged to the emperor
must cea3e. Not the slightest attention
was paid to the warning. The highlanders
continued to swoop down like
mountain hawks upon the Georgian villages
along the base of the range whenever
the latter were left nngarrisoned,
and it soon became evident that, in order
to protect Georgia, Russia must attack
the mountaineers iu their native
fastnesses. War was declared in 1801,
itud hostilities continued with only occasional
intervals of peace for more than
half a century. After the sacrifice of
millions of money and tens of thousands
of lives the mountaineers were finally
coiiquered, and harassed Christians of
Georgia, for the first time in a hundred
years, could come out ot tlieir iortineu
churches and look up to the white peaks
of the Caucasus without a thrill of
During all this time where were the
sympathies of England ? With the persecuted,
battle wasted, almost exterminated
Christians of Georgia ? Far from
it. Then,^as now, the guiding priuciple
of British statesmanship seemed to lie
" with anybody against Russia." The
spectacle of a Christian people struggling
vainly for existence in the midst of
hostile Mohammedan powers, and borne
down at last by overwhelming odds, did
not extort from England a single expression
of sympathy or pity. But the
"wrongs" of the " unfortuuate mountaineers,"
who were not allowed to prove
their nobility aud maintain their freedom
by sacking Christian churches, burniug
Christian villages aud outragiug Christian
women, were trumpeted through
English newspapers to all*the world!
Journals like the Pall Mull Gazelle,
which could more easily impute selfish
motives tlmu understand noble one.?, denounced
the interference of Russia in
the Caucasus as an unprovoked aggression
of tyrannical power, and so persistently
were the " wrongs " of the mountaineers
magnified and the sufferings of
the Georgian Christians ignored by the
English press that four-fifths of intelligent
American readers were made to believe
that the conquest of the Caucasus
was a crime against humanity.
History sometimes repeats itself, and
Russia is now endeavoring to do fcr the
oppressed Christians of Bulgaria what
in the first hnlf of this century she did
for the persecuted Christians of Georgia.
She is aguin opposed by British statesmanship,
anil her motives again misrepresented
by the British press. Americans
should not be again misled. As a
Christian nation, as a fair-play loving notion,
they should try to do Ht least justice
to a great and noble people, who are maintaining
the rights of Christian kinsmep,
and defending as America would defend
the altars of the Christian church. *

Browbeating a Witness.
Some time ago the Legislature of I
I Massachusetts had under consideration 1
! the question of enjoining certain chemi- I
cal works as a nuisance; an eminent
chemist was brought forward as a witness
on the side to which Benj. F. Butler was
opposed. The lawyer by turns abused,
insulted and browbeat the professor, and,
I at last, asked him if he had not, on a
certain day, and in a certain place, accepted
a certain sum of money for his
professional opinion? The assemblage
was simply horrified. The witness was

The President's Salary,

and Executive Appropriation bill, provide
$25,000 only for the salary of the
President, and accompany it with a provision
repealing the section of the revised
statutes which increased the salary
to $50,000. The Senate failed to pass
over the veto of President Graut the
bill restoring the salary to the old figure,
although it passed both houses by a
majority. It is likely that the provision,
as it stands now in the appropriaj
