Rice for Japanese Soldiers. > Rice and dried fish is the uniform food; ?of .the Japanese army in cam paigning times. This is the .way in ?which the rice Is cooked: It is boiled until "quite thick and glutinous. Next it ls placed on a ceramic slab, rolled out, ahd;cut into squares. The squares are then placed in the sun to dry and often turned. When hard as sea bis cuit and greatly Teduced in weight, they can be stored. A certain number are allowed each day to the soldier. All he has to do Is to break , up a square in boiling ; water and to add the dried fish. In a few minutes, he has what seems to him a delicious thick soup. If be cannot procure, boiling water, he sim ply eats his-rice dry. In_the fruit sea son he substitutes, fruit, when he can obtain it, for the fish.-Chicago Tri bune. ? ' Finish of Years of Toll.

London, By Cable.-The Associated Press interviewed many prominent persons connected and in close touch with the government relative to the seizure of British volunteer fleet in 'the Red Sea. As a result of these inquiries there is shown to be a remarkably hostile feeling against Russia, of a strength and a bitterness almost without pre cedent since the Crimean war. Even the most coservative who have been in the service of tho government for many years ar.d who openly deplore the haste with which they thought Great Britain had plunged into the Transvaal war, franki'' ?eclare for a policy of reprisal against what is re gardede here as Russia's violation of treaties and her piratical attack on British commerce. The warlike tone of such papers as The Times, The Standard, The Morn ing Post and The Daily Telegraph which, in national crises hitherto, al most inwlably advised caution, has had its ?mvitable effect. There has been stinfed up a storm of indigna tion among all classes in the United Kingdom and of a strength with which the government itself can scarcely guage. Those who deplored thc outbreak of the war between Ja^an and Russia and insisted publicly and privately that Great Britain, crippled financially after her South African experiences, must not, at all costs, be drawn into the far Eastern strugle, are now amongst the most outspoken champions of a physi c?l force that will prevent tho repeti tion of the Malacca incident in the Red Sea. "Lord Lansdowne," says the Daily Telegraph, voicing the views of the government, "has faced the situation created by the abuse of the right of search in the only manner worthy of a British minister compelled to defend the interests of British commerce and thc honor of the flag, and acting with unhesitating firmness and prompitude which recall the strongest days of the national policy, he has justified the trust of the country. While not one rash word should be said which would have the effect of increasing the ten sion of anxious and dangerous inter val, it would be futile to disguise the character or to minimize the risks of the situation which has arisen. We hope and believe that a solution of the difficulty may still be found in the withdrawal of the Rusian government from its false position." Packers'Strike Settled. Chicago, Special-The strike of pack ing house employes, begun nine days -.ago and which has demoralized the packing industry throughout the coun -tray/was settled here Wednesday night al a conference between representatives of the packers, the officials of the meat cutters* union and representatives of all the allied trades employed at the stockyards. The whole controversy will be submitted to a board of arbi tration, both sides agreeing to abide by whatever decision this board may reach. Pending the decision of the arbi tration board, the men will be -?aken back to work as rapidly as possible by. the packers, and it is agreed by the paekers that all the old employes are to be_reinstated within 45-days from the date work is resumed.

Asheboro, Special.-An unprecedent ed crop of wheat has been gathered from the farms in Randolph county this year.

Chee Foo, By Cable.-A junk with eight Russians and 50 Chinese on board, arrived here Tuesday afternoon', five days from Port Arthur. The Rus-: -ians refused to talk, but the Chinese Bay that on July ll and 12 the Japanese captured and occupied with 4,000 men. one of the eastern forts near-Port Ar thur. Before.re-enforcements arrived the Russians cut off the 4,000 troops in the fort and exploded mines, which re sulted in the killing of every Japanese soldier there. The Chinese report also that the night before they left Port Arthur ? Russian torpedo boat sank a merchant" ship near Port Arthur, mistaking her for a Japanese transport: Many Chi nese on board the merchantman were drowned, but the white crew of the steamer and a number of her Ch'nese passengers were rescued by the Rus sians. If this story is true, the steam-, er in question probably is the Hipsang, belonging to the Indo-China Naviga tion Company, which yesterday was:48 hours overdue from New Chwang, and which was reported to have struck a mine. The local agents of the Hipsang say they believe the steamer to have been lost. Loss Over 3,000. Chicago, Special.-A special to The Daily News from New Chwang says: "Hard fighting has been going on for several days in the neighborhood pf Tongschu, eight miles east of Ta Tche Kiao.

The Japanese also have been in active cop tact with the Russians east of Hia cheng, where there have been many minor actions. All along Kuropatkin's front and flank the Japanese are mov ing into, position, but the general at tack is being postponed until supplies and reinforcements come to the front Progress along the muddy roads and ojountain passes is slow." St. Petersburg, By Cable.-The news that the Russian volunteer steamships Smolensk and St. Petersburg now ciuising in the Red Sea are stopping ships of neutral nations and searching them for contraband of war, is causing the liveliest interest in all circles. Rus sia has evidently weighed the ques tion, believing herself to bc within her rights and neither fears or anticipates international complications. Indeed; some of the powers may have been sounded by Russia on the subject. Nevertheless foreign opinoon is await ed eagerly, and more or less criticism is expected. Members of the diplomatic corps are keenly anxious to ascertain the views their governments will take of the passage through the Dardanelles of these vessels of the volunteer fleet as merchantmen and their subsequent conversion into men of war. Another interesting question raised is whether coal is contraband of war and can be supplied or not to Russian men-of-war. Greensboro Votes Dry.

The oddest apple tree in the state of Pennsylvania is owned by Henry J. Miller of Hokendauqua. It is a paradise dwarf, 2% feet high, with 72 blossoms, and lt bore two apples last, RTICULTUR? SPRAYING. . Spraying the trees aud vines should be made a portion of the routine work, whether disease appears or not, as a protection to the neighborhood. An orchard may become affected and not show such diseased conditions until the next year, when more work will then be necessary to keep the trees from attack or injury. EARLY APPLES. F. H. Bullard asks Green's Fruit Grower to publish .1 list of the varie-, ties of apples that.bear fruit soon af ter being planted. Whether fruit trees bea'r soon or not depends somewhat upon the soil, methods of culture, cli mate and other conditions. It is a fact, however, that some varieties bear fruit sooner after planting than others under ordinary conditions. Among those varieties that have a tendency to beal" fruit soon after plantin?: are: Yellow Transparent. Banana, King, Bismark. Tiees which are grawin; ?rapidly do not come into fruiting so quick as those trees which arc soma what stunted in their growth. ADVICE TO TREE PLANTERS. Trees set out this season should have their branches cut back move than two-thirds. This rule applies to all kinds of fruit trees recently planted. Do not hesitate to cut back branches to within six inches of the trunk, and ' in the case of peach trees cut off the branches close to the trunk and cut the trunk back three feet from the'ground. The severe pruning at the time of planting seems to the novice to be severe, but it is the kind of pruning that all newly planted trees should receive. The tree you have re ceived from the nursery has all the top left on and it possesses from 100 to 500 buds, which is far too many. All the buds you need on the top of newly planted fruit trees is enough to form the head of the tree which should never have over four to six main branches. Therefore, if you cut the head of the tree back closely the few buds remaining make a vigorous growth, but if the buds and all the top are left on the numerous buds make a small ?.'owth, and the top thus formed is thick aud dense, requiring very severe pruning in future years. NEEDS OF THE GARDEN. 'Are there fruits in your garden? No garden is complete without a row or two of dwarf pears growing through it. Dwarf pears can be plauted three feet apart in the row with the rows far enough apart so the garden can be planted without difficulty. There . should be a row or two devoted to cur r?nts, gooseberries and raspberries. If I . your garden is restricted in size you can plant the grape vines against the house or the barn, or along, fences. There should be a strawberry bed in every garden. You should plant a few /.strawberry plants'" every spring in .April or May. Do notf'?ely--entirely upon the old strawberry bed. IfTy??r plant a few strawberries every spring ?you will- have a continuous supply, [J^herwise yoii will not No garden is complete without rows of asparagus or without a few plants of rhubarb or pieplant. There should also be a few plants of sage, which may be as easily grown as weeds. Perhaps your garden should be enriched a little. If you have plenty of room it may be an advantage to let your garden patch rest and start a new patch in another place. GROWING GARDEN PEAS. The money in growing garden peas is in the early and late-sorts, the me dium varieties bringing low prices, as a rule. Nearly all market gardeners .confine their operations in pea grow ing to the early sorts, which is often a mistake, and particularly so if one has a good market for the reason that many people will buy the late sorts who will not eat the mid-season va rieties because they are likely to be tough and hard. On the grounds of the writer the Juno, shown in the il lustration, has proved to be by far the best of the late varieties, although it has been grown in many sections as the one variety for the main crop. The plants are dwarf and require little or no staking, and are meit remarkable producers. The pods grow in pairs and are filled with from seven to nine peas each. The flavor of the peas is of the finest, which flavor is retained even when a little old. This feature, together with the fact that they also retain their green color, rarely turn ing yellow, even when very old, makes the variety peculiarly valuable to the market gardener. Our Beacon 1.1 Rh ts. There are 9000 burning lights and signals stretched along the American coasts, forming a perfect link, so that the navigator never need be beyond sight of one of the beacons. One thousand of these are located on the Atlantic Coast, 1500 are scattered along the rivers and inland water ways, 500 on the Great Lakes, and 200 on the Pacific Coast Of the grand to tal, including lighthouses of different classes, buoys, beacons and danger sig uals, 3000 are lighted, giving forth their warnings at night time. Of these a score or more throw a beam of 100, 000 candle power. To maintain the lighthouse service a corps of over 4000 men is constantly employed and a fleet or more than fifty vessels. No service in the world exceeds our own in com pleteness and efficiency. A modern American lighthouse of the first class costs between $100,000 and $200,000. and of this about one-third is spent for the electric light and apparntus alone. The forests of the Philippines afford tile greatest variety of wood in the world. Some of the hard woods aro unexcelled for beauty, and durability. FARM TOPICS. \ PARIS GREEN ON POTATOES Most potato growers use paris green too strong wheu spraying potato plants to subdue the beetle, declares the indianapolis News. Experiments have shown thut one-half pound of Hie paris gre. : to eacb barrel water is sufficient and will be strong enough for the season through if the season is started early enough to destroy the beetles while they are small and com partively tender. If the paris green is combined with Bordeaux mixture for spraying double the quantity may be used. There can be no injury to the vines if the proportions applied are us indicated. GROWING COWrEAS. ' Cowpens are easily grown and will do well on any well prepared soil that is not t. > sad and wet. The crop is especially suited to the loams and to the clay soils that are high, well drained and well worked. Soils that fail to produce profitable crops of corn, clover, wheat or timothy will often yield a fair crop of cowpcas. Break the land deep; workthesoi.' clown fine; get the seedbed free from clods; make it compact and be sure it con tains abundant moisture to germinate the peas at once. Plant after corn planting is over this season, hear tue middle of June. By that time Hie soil is warm and the peas will grow at once. This late planting gives oppor tunity to destroy the annual weeds that appear, thus preventing their in terfering with the cowpeas later in tue summer. If the peas are intended for hay the last cultivation should be followed with the drag. The surface should be perfectly level and no clods should be allowed to be scattered to interfere with the mower when cutting. If tho surface is not made level, cuttir.g and raking the hay wi', cause much dirt to scatter with it. Any one wishing to grow peas for the first time can get much help from his neighbor, who has experience that will, in a measure, be his own after trying to grow tue cow peas.-Indianapolis News. HANDY FODDER TIE. . The followirg illustration shows a handy fodder ac. It is easily and quick ly made thus. Take a piece of light timber Ixl 1-2 (Blackgins preferred) saw about twenty or twenty-two inches long. Then lf.y the stick down on the flat side, bore a hole in one end half an inch from the end, large enough to admit a large white twine. Put the end of the twine through the hole and tie a knot in it to hold it there, now saw a notch in the opposite end of the stick", as shown in the UICTtoaitoft SQ. that when the string is drawn tight around the fodder one of these knots on the other end of the string may be adjusted into this notch to bold it there. The string should be about three feet long. When the bundles are in their proper place in the mow, re lease the tie and the tie is ready for use again. If several of the ties are used a person can put away a wagon load of fodder at one time. If the ties are taken care of properly they will last for several years, then new strings may be needed. We have used those ties for several years and find them handier than twine strings.-Walter E. Reed, in The Epitoinist. ... TREATMENT OF THE SOIL. Just how far one may be able to crop the soil and return to it the mini mum amount of fertilizer and do it profitably depends upon the soil. It is known that certain plants'will sup ply the needed nitrogen to the soil much cheaper than it can be supplied by fertilizers; it bas also beeu demon strated that the almost unlimited sup plies of potash in the soil may be re leased and made available to the plants by a proper system of soil cultivation. Hence, by these methods, the cost of supplying fertilizers to the soil is ma terially reduced. It must be confessed, however, that the usual way of fertilizing is to sup ply the soil what manure the stock make during the winter with, perhaps, a small quantify of commercial fertil izer. Further, too often it is the case that the fertilizer which would be only a fair quantity for a dozen acre? is spread over twenty. A bushel o:? shelled corn will take from the soil about one pound of nitrogen, one-qnar ter of a pound of potash and something over half a pound of phosphoric acid besides what'is consumed by the foli age of the plant, yet the usual appli cation of fertilizers, in any form, is hardly as much as this to the area of soil which produces the bushel of corn. In other words, most of us take from tn.* soil more than we give lo it in. the form of fertilizers, when we should furnish enough fertilizer to grow the plant complete, seed or fruit and branch and enough more to allow for leeching and evaporation and the keeping up of the fertility iu the soil. When we begin to fertilize on that plan then t.ie crops will pay well. Muscle* Kays. There would appear to be no longer any doubt that rays are giveu off by active muscles and nerves. Dr. Hugh Walsham and Leslie Miller point out that experiments are remarkably easy to perform and are absolutely convinc ing as to the actual existence of the rays. The fluorescent screens are pre pared with a hexagonal zinc blende, which is placed in the form of a very i:hin film on thin paper, gold beater's .skin or thin celluloi?. The screen is excited and the lluorescen: light al lowed to die away until it hr.s reached the steady, stage. At this point if a muscle in a state of contraction be placed underneath the fluoresc ut screen lt will be seen to ..?righten per ceptibly.-Lancet. Heart Disease in Fruasln.

The symptoms of summer ca tarrh are quite unlike in different cases, but the most common ones are general lassitude, played-out, tired-?ut, used-up, run-down feel ings, combined with more or less heavy, stupid, listless, mental L condition.
