An SCiectric Tree Dentroyer tho Latest.
Tho model farm of tomorrow and
of the future must avail itself of the
most economical systems of plaut
propagation, and the geoinagnetifere
must play an important part in its
workings. Beneath tbe rich soil iu
gardens where the delicate vegetables
are growin < networks ol' invisible wires
are laid, collecting aud distributing
? the atmospheric electricity to all the
In the forcing-houses similar ar
rangements are made for stimulating
the winter vegetables and flowers for
the market, while overhead powerful
arc lights inakeihe night as brilliant
nc day and help to mature the plant
growths in half the regular time re
quired by nature. I the lields of
wheat and corn the tore powerful
currents from a stor: o houso work
out similar results, keening the sea
son of growth and doubling the yield
per acre. Excessive drought and the
danger from late and early frosts are
thus partly avoided on the electric
farm, while, if necessary, two crops
can be raised in one season where
formerly only one could be grown.
The electric power that the farmer
has at his command euables him to
regulato tho growth of his plants to
suit tho season or thc markets. One
portion of the garde? eau be forced,
while the other half is kept back sev
eral weeks.
There is no limit to the uso of the
new invisible power which he gathers
from tho atmosphere around him or
generates from the wasted forces of
the neighboring stream of water.
This leads to the examination of the
source of tho. new power that propels
the machinery on the farm.
A small Btream of water that for
merly flowed across the farm in an
irregular course, fertilizing the lower
meadows and irrigatiug the upland
districts, hus been widened nud deep
ened near its source, forming a large
storage reservoir. This arli?cial pond
has been dammed at its lower end,
aud as the water tumbles over the
opeu water gates it turns several tur
bine wheels."
These wheels do not move the ma
chinery of a flour mill but constantly
manufactn-.o electricity for use on the
farm. Ly means of the huge storage
reservoir the work of making electri
city can go on through the diyest
season, for the water power neve
gives out and the electric power is
always ready to do its work. From
this storago house the motive power
is conducted to all parts of the farra.
The forcing houses for winter plants
are connected with tho power houses
by overhead wires similar to those
which disfigure the city* streets for
trolley lines. The great bara and
living houso are lighted by elec
tric lights that get their source of
energy in the same place. Movable
cables radiate from the same storage
houses to every parc of the lields aud
to those electric motors are attached for
performing the various labors assigned
to them by the inventive genius of
The electric' machinery worked by
the motors is full of interest Here
are huge plows that turn over six fur
rows of fresh soil at once, hayracks
and reapers which perform their du
ties automatically, electric weed kil
lers and fertilizers, corn huskers and
shellers, hay choppers and gigantic
threshiug and fanning mills. Elec
vehicles rush across" the extensive
fields with loads of grain, hay or vege
tables, moving their broad tires with
out di?iculty over the rough and un
even surface, and behind tho plows
and arrows the automatic seeders fol
low in close succession, dropping the
corn, wheat or other seed at regular
intervals" in the froshly-turned fur
rows. Everything is performed by
machinery, guided by disciplined
hands and propelled by the now mo
tive power that has caused all the
There aro two general types of these
electric plows which will serve to
illustrate tho general principle of
operation in each class. The first
type is propelled by a fixed motor.
The field selected for plowing is di
vided into sections of exactly the same
width ul' the cable used for pulling tho
plows. A heavy, powerful electric
motor ou wheels is stationed on each
side of tho field, and a strong cable
connects thom. This cable winds and
ind unwinds upon a spool as tho ma
chinery is set in motion. To this
?rabie the plow, which is capable of
limning from three to six furrows of
noil at once, is firmly attached. When
libe electric motor ou the side of tho
field is set in motion it winds up the
cabio and drags tho plow toward it,
sind when it reaches that side of the
field it turns around and the reverse
action Of {hVotbeVmotor repeats the
The secondtype of electric plow is
run by a movable motor attached to
the plow itseitr-.jThe cable is fixed to
au anchorfpn\?h^/.opposite side of the
field and/"tho electric motor follows
this calile, d. nggiug the heavy plow
with it. Even tito weeding is accom
plished by electricity. The force that
stimulates plant growth and gives mo
tive power to all the machinery eau
also kill aud destroy. Electrocution
is applied to the weeds just as suc
cessfully as to j?risoners in our jails.
The delicate current of electricity may
give life and vigor to plaut life, but
a powerful current destroys every
gorm of lite, auimal or vegetable. In
the sj'?iug of the year tho new weed
destroyer goes over the field and an
nihilates weeds, insects aud larva?.
As the vehicle moves along aseries ol
many wire brushes drags on the ear tl
and kills everything that comes ir

short time of every noxious growth.

The best looking girl in the Pine
mountain country was Susan Natter,
and Susan was extremely, not to sny
foolishly, fond of Jim Davis, a young
man who wai my chief timbermau in
the season, and who owned and con
ducted a good farm iu the river bot
tom as a side issue. Jim was the
catch of the mountains, and, like
other men in that happy class, he was
careless and stood a fair chance of
losing what ought to be hiB because
he was too sure of it. Susan was
just the girl for him, but he had al
most worn out her patience by his
dilly-dallying policy, and one day I
thought the end had surely come, and
it was all up with Jim, who was a fav

she said to me as I sat out in front of

usual to Susan.
"Oh, indeed," I said chnffiiugly,
goiug around behiud the counter,
"something must be goiug to happen?"
"I reckon thar is," abo admitted,
"Good for you," I laughed "and
I'm glad that Jim baa got his uses

"By the way, Jim," I said, "did
you know Susau Natter was goiug to
get married?"
"Thunderation, colonel, no," he
blurted out. "Ker she ain't, is she?"
"I guess she is. I sold her a wed

me she was. "
"Who's she goin' ter marry, col

"I don't know. She wouldn't tell
"Well, she'll tell me, colonel," he
said, with tho lines getting hard across
his face, and little wriukles of doubt
and fear showing between. Jim was
faoing a possibility that had never pre
sented itself to him in its hill strength.
He went out of the store and up the
road leading to old mau Natter's place.
The next morning he stopped at thc
store on his way to work.
"Did you find out who it was?" I
asked him at once, for I was inter
ested more thau he had been.
"Course I did," he answered, with
"Who is it?"
"Me," and he laughed the short
laugh of the man who hal been made
to do what he knew be should have

F. Hopkiuaou Smith lectured out in
Keokuk the other day, aud uow the
people of tho favored city, and of the
whole state of Iowa, for that matter,
are worrying over llie question wheth
er Mr. Smith has or has not a "dress
suit." They know that On the even
ing of the lecture he wore a gray trav
eling suit that bagged at tho kuees,
but ho explained this by saying that
his trunk had goue astray, aud then
he told a channing story about going
once to see llarriet Beecher Stowe,
discovering on his return that ho had
worn no necktie, aud then sending
her by mail the scarf he should have
worn if he had not forgotten it.
The explanation and tho story would
have tecu i eceive:l without question
by the Keokukians had it not beon for
the fact that in Mr. Smith's audience
was a young lady with a memory.
This inconvenient person declares
that she heard Mi: Smith iu Ohicagc

The Art of roaching.
Poachiug is one of the most delicate
and digestible ways to cook an egg.
Tho slightly salted water should be
at the boiliug point, but not bubbling.
That tears the vwhite to . pieces aud
makes "rags" of it. The egg, broken
first iu a saucer or cup, should be slid
easily in, and the hot .water heaped
over the yolks as it cooks to hasten its_
covoring while lt is still soft. A fiat
perforated cream skimmer is the best
utensil to lake out the egg? and it
should renell the table on a square of
hot toast from which the crusts are
cut and on a hotplate 30 seconds from
the moment of its leaving the water.

manufacture to no one, preferring to
see to it herself that it should,bo made
precisely right. She soaked "forty
five grains of pure sago in cold water
for several hours. She then put it ou
the fire to boil in fresh water, and,'
when it had reached the boiliug point,
poured cold water over the sago in a
sieve. Theu it was cooked for twenty.
minutes with ono and one-half'spoon- .

A Phrase that London Tradesmen Ccold Not
Do Wllbout,
Americans who have lived in Lon
don for a. little -time begin to think
that "Thank you" is the word that
bears the burden of British business,
and that if it got lost out of the lan
guage some dark night the shops and
the omnibuses would be unable to do
any trade next morning until it was
found again.
The red-cheeked boy in the grocery
around the corner would certainly be
helpless without! "Thank you." For,
example, this Is. the conversation that
takes place when a customer comes in.
"Have you any canned tomatoes?"
"Yes, ma'am, thank you," says the
red-che?ked boy.
"You may send me a cnn."
"Thank you," says the boy, making
a note of lt.
"And a pound of crackers." (You
see, the customer was American.)
"Thank you?" says the boy, with a
question mark in the word and a puz
zled look on his apple face. "Beg par
don, ma'am, er-we don't have "em."
"Why, those are crackers right
"Oh," says the boy. "Thank you!

biscuits. Anything else?"
"That will be all."
"Thank you."

This Subject.
In a learned paper on the anbject of
.'onv.rrgent strabismus bj*. Professor
Priestly Smith, which constitute the
oat Bowman lecture of toe Opthal
fflolOglcal'SocIety, lt ls stated that the
inset of strabismus is often attrib
uted tb a" fit, a fright, a fall or other
such, occurrence, and still mof? offen
io aii illness; such as whooping cough
br measles. Making allowance for the
frequency of such events among chil
dren and for a-certain disregard of
time nnd sequence In tholr elders, it
seems to me, sitys Professor Smith,
highly probable that these supposed
causes are very often real Causes*
Some such explanation of the onset
was given, with show Qt tens?n,- in
more than two-lifths of my cases, and
the proportion would no doubt have,
been nigher had not many of the pa
tients been brought by persons who
knew nothing of their antecedents.
ifi many case's the history Wds de
finite nnd hot to be iipset by cross-ex;
ami?atlo?; For example a child who"
had never been seen to squint before
came from school squinting badly, hav
ing that morning been put Into the
corner with a cloth over her h'edd. An
other did the same immediately after
having his head pushed Into d bucket
of water by his brother; another after
sitting In scalding water; another after
being terrified by a monkey which
jumped on to her shoulder. No less
dear In many cases was the history
of onset during measles, whooping
cough ol* othef constitutional dis
All these are Conditions which may
gravely disturb the nervous system.
Shock, anger or apprehension Impair
the control of muscular actlod. They
cause the knees tb shake, the voice to
tremble and even the hand of the oph
thalmic surgeon to become Unsteady.
Febrile disorders cause delirium, con
vulsions and sometimes transient stra
bismus and leave the nervous system
exhausted. Is lt not highly probable
that such disorders occurring in young
children may Interrupt the action of
these higher centres which control
tho movements of the eyes, and this
not only where control Is already diffi
cult by reason of amblyopia or error
of refraction, but even in children
whose visual apparatus is normal for
their time o' life, but not yet fully de
veloped? The old idea that the squint
ing child needs a little skillful surgery
and nothing more ls dying out. Most I
people know that glasses are often I
nccessnrj-. but that the child may re
quire teaching, at some trouble, to use
tlie squinting eye is a new idea to
many. It is easily graspod, however,
nnd must be grasped if our efforts are
to be effeetivo. I have used the word
educative as a help in that direction.
Of course there are parents and there
are children on whom all time and
trouble spent In this way are entirely
thrown away, but on the whole I have
been surprised at the care and pa
tience with which directions have been
carried out, even in homes where one

RS. PINKHAM says that Irritability Indicates disease.
Women who are nervous and snappish are to be*
pitied. Their homes are ttncomfortable ; their dis*
positions grow constantly worse. Such women need the coun
sel and treatment of a woman who understands the peculiar
troubles of her 'sex.
Mas. ANNA E. HALL, of Hill
dale, Conn., was all run down ia
health and had completely lost
control of her nerves. She wroto
to Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass.,
for advice. Now she writes :
"I wish to thank you for what
your Vegetable Compound has done for me. It has helped me
more than anything else, I suffered for a long time with ner
vousness, pains in back arid limbs and falling of the womb ;
also had neuralgia in my head and could not sleep. I told
my husband that some
thing must be done, for
1 was nearly frantic with
pain. Having read of
the wonderful cures
Lydia E. Pinkharri'S Veg
etable Compound had ^
performed, I termined
to try it. I have taken
it and am happy to say I
?rii cured. I recommend
to all my friends and never
tire of telling the benefit I
have derived from its use. X
have you alone to thank for
?iy recovery."
GAN, I8IO Mod?tiitt St,
Philadelphia, Pa., writes i
-Three years ago I was
a sufferer from chronic
dyspepsia, was irritable
and cross, and can say
that after taking fieve?
bottles of Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound was entirely cured. I take great
pleasure in writing this to you and would be pleased to bo
interviewed by any one who is afflicted with that distressing
complaint; 1 am very grateful to you."
