SCOTCH ANECDOTES.
Dr. Scott, of Greenock, used to tell o
sailor who came to be married, but wh
asked if he would take the woman to
his wife, looked blank aud said, "I won
like to know first what you are going
say to she." At another time, when t
woman was asked if she would obey, b
did not answer, the man?also a sailor
exclaimed, "Leave that to me, sir."
In those days people who felt sleepy di
ing the sermon used, as now in German
to shake off drowsiness by standing v
but poor human nature made this at tiic
an occasion of display. At old Monklac
a man who had on a rather gaudy vt
stood up and threw back his coat, appt
ently to let his vest be seen. Jir. i5ow<
the minister, at length said : "Xoo, Joli
ye had better sit doon. We have a'se
your braw waistcoat."
It was to Mr. Brewer that the gra\
digger once said: "Trade's very dull t
noo. I hae ua buried a leevin' cratur 1
three weeks."
The people seemed to have a dislike
sermons being lead. They used to sa
"Hoo can we mind the minister's serm
if he canna mind it himsel' ?"
What are we to think of the lady w
sent to her minister, Mr. Risk, of Dalse
a polite message that "he should clean 1
teeth," and received the answer that "s
should scrape her tongue."
At a Scotch funeral one of the mourn(
approached the minister, and whisper
to him: "Dae ye ken what I aye thii
just when they're letting down the coffin
(the coffin was just being lowered into t
grave). "Solemn thoughts, I suppose

I have no doubt." "Na," said the ottv
"I'm aye awful glad it's no me."
He Forgot Something.?A passeng
on a street-car was talking to a friend
a trip down-town, and all the other p:
sengers listened with attention, as t
theme was one of general interest. I:
little boy, a small urchin of three yea
sat beside him regarding him with fo
delight.
"There is no sense," the speaker w
saying, "in the way people go through t
world forgetting things that they ought
remember. They hurry out of street-ci
leaving valuable packages behind thei
forget their opera-glasses in the theal
and their overcoats in hotels. Now it
a very weak mind that cannot rememt
its own bundles. Here I have a package
an umbrella and an overcoat. I could a
ry them from here to Kamschatka withe
ever forgetting them. This is my corne
good-morning."
He bolted out of the door without wa
ing for the car to stop, and the other pi
sengers were musing over the truth a
wisdom of what he said when a sraa
wailing voice piped out:
"My pa's gone off and forgot me."
Then a bluff old man in the corner i
marked:
"We are all tarred with the same stick
And it was not until the return trip
the car that the man who never for?
anything recovered his small boy.
His Credentials.?A traveler call
at nightfall at a farmer's house, the owr
of which was away from home. T
mother and daughter, being alone, refus
to lodge the traveler.
"How far is it, then," said he, "to
house where a preacher can get lodgings
"O, as you are a preacher," said the c
lady, "you can stay here."
Accordinglyhedismounted. He depc
ited his saddlebags in the house, and 1
his horse to the stable. Meanwhile t
mother and daughter were debating t
point as to what kind of a preacher
was.
"He cannot be a Presbyterian," said t
one, "for he is not dressed enough."
"He is not a Methodist," said the oth<
"for his coat is not the right cut for
Methodist."
"If I could find his hymn-book," sa
the daughter, "I could tell what kind ol
preacher he isand with that she thri
her hand into the saddlebags, and.pulli
out a flask of liquor, she exclaimed, "I
mother, he's a Hard Shell Baptist!"

a telephone, and his friend was showi
him how it worked. It was in his offi<
He called up his house, and his wifecai
to the telephone. "My dear, Mr. Jones
here, and I have asked him to come up
dinner."
Then he turned to Mr. Jones and said
"Put your ear to that, and you'll he
her answer."
He did, and this was the answer:
".Now, John, l tola you i wouiu ne\

"What was that?" spoke out Mr. Jom

Ex-Governor Cornell, of New Yoi
tells a good story at his own expense,
seems that when In oflice at Albany
would sometimes return home late
night, after his wife had retired, and wh
she asked him what time it was, wou
answer, "About twelve," or, "A little i
j ter midnight." One evening, instead
making the inquiry,.she said: "Alonzo

while dressing, Mrs. Cornell inquired, a

Governor. "Alon/.o, look at that clock

The Governor was crushed.

F(?(JS AS FOOD. I
f a Kggs are an article of cheap and nutri- j ??
en tious food which we do not find 011 our ta- |
be | hies in the quantity economy demands, j h
ild Persons probably do not fully comprehend j
to I how valuable eggs are as food ; that, like J
he I milk, an egg is a complete food in itself, I
?ut ! containing every necessary for the devel- | I
? | opment of a perfect animal, as is manifest A
from the fact that a chick is formed from I1
ir- it. It seems a mystery how muscles, bones, $
iy, feathers and everything that a chicken re- i ^
ip, quires for its perfect development, are J ^
ies ! made from the yolk and white of an egg; j
id, I but such is the fact, and it shows how com- *
;st i plete a food an egg is. It is also easily di- y*
ir- ! gested, if not damaged in cooking. A "
?r, j raw or soft boiled egg is always as t^sily &
in, | assimilated as is milk, and can be be eaten la
en ; with impunity by children and invalids, ca
The average egg weighs a thousand grains, ! .
re- and is worth more as food than so much ! m
he beefsteak. Indeed, there is no more con- j k,

The albumen, oil and saline matter are, as \
to in milk, in the right proportion for sus- ?'
y: taining animal life. Two or three boiled Ia
on eggs, with the addition of a slice or two of j t
toast, will makea breakfast sufficient for a j in
ho man, and good enough for a king. An or- m
rf, dinary hen's egg weighs from one and a la
lis half to two ounces, a duck's egg from two ! .
he to three ounces, the egg of the seagull and I ^
the turkey from three to four ounces, and w
irs the egg of a goose from four to six ounces. | j
ed The solid matter and the oil of the duck's i
uk egg exceed those in a hen's egg by about J
?" one-fourth. An egg weighing an ounce 01
he | and three-quarters consists of one hundred Jj(
j and twenty grains of carbon and eighteen hi
;y, and three-quarter grains of nitrogen, or j
er, 15.25 per cent, of carbon and 2 per cent, of ni
nitrogen. The value of one pound of eggs, b<
as food for sustaining the active forces of ni
;er the body, is to the value of one pound of -j
on lean beef as 1,584 to 1)00. As a flesh proas
ducer, one pound of egg is about equal to ^
he one pound of beef. A hen may be calcu- j0
lis lated to consume one bushel of corn yearrs,
ly, and to lay ten dozen or fifteen pounds '
nd of eggs. This is equivalent to saying that 1"
three and one-tenth pounds of corn will
'as produce, when fed to a hen, five-sixths of tr
he a pound of eggs; but five-sixths of a pound s
to of pork requires about five pounds of corn oi
irs for its production. Judging from these ar
m, facts, eggs must be economical in their Is
ire production and in their eating and espe- j
is cially fit for the laboring man in replacing 0j
?er meat.?[Medical Classics. gt
ir- HOW TO TEmTTuOOD HORSE. id
?ut "I can't explain what a good horse is," i
sr; said a well known dealer. "They are as sr
different as men. In buying a horse you
it- must look first to his head and eyes for
as- signs of intelligence, temper, courage and jg
nd honesty. Unless a horse has brains you th
ill, can't teach him anything any more than of
you can a half-witted child. See that tall fi|
bay there, a fine looking animal, fifteen re
re- hands high. You can't teach that horse .
anything. Why? Well, I'll show you a
difference in heads, but have a care of his .
of heels. Look at the brute's head, that .
;ot rounding nose, that tapering forehead, that
broad, full place below the eyes. You
can't trust him. 1
ed "That's an awful good mare," he added. nt
ier "She's as true as the sun. You can see hi
he breadth and fullness between the ears and st
e" eyes. You couldn't hire that mare to act tli
mean or hurt anybody. The eye should g
* be full, and hazel is a good color. I like a CL
small, thin ear, and want a horse to throw
"d his ears well forward. Look out for the a*
brute that wants to listen to all the conver- w
,s* sation going on behind him. The horse
6d that turns back his ears till they almost .*
he meet al the noints. take my word for it, is
be sure to do something wrong. See that J1;
'ie straight, elegant face. A horse with a [v
dishing face is cowardly, and a cowardly n<
he brute is usually vicious. Then I like a I
square muzzle, with large nostrils, to let bl
3r> in plenty of air to the lungs. For the un- ()
' a der side of the head, a good horse should m
be well cut under the jowl, with jaw bones ai
l1^ broad and wide apart under the throttle. t
a "So much for the head," he continued. 0j
jst "The next thing to consider is the build of n(
nS the animal. Never buy a long-legged,
ja? stilty horse. Let him have a short, a(
straight back and a straight rump and
you've got a gentleman's horse. The *
en withers should be high and the shoulders w
well set back and broad ; but don't get ni
them too deep in the chest. The foreleg hi
x^e should be short. Give me a pretty straight cr

There are all kinds of horses, but the ani- f0

'er Do You Do this Way ??In riding over tc
,se the country, it is astonishing to see the t
number of machine houses made of fence C'
es* corners or forest trees. Only a short time in
ve ago I saw a nearly new grain drill stand- di
ne ing in the field right where the owner fin- th
Ia* ished sowing wheat, and within fifty yards cr
be of a good shelter. And just last Sunday, j
ne in traveling along a splendid turnpike, I te
noticed the plows of a farmer used in mak- Ir]

Last summer I saw a binder that was
bought a few weeks before, and which had *
bound thousands of golden sheaves of "

iat Night Air Better Than Foul Air.
an An extraordinary fallacy is the dread of
og night air. What air can we breathe at 1
L,d night but night air? The choice is be*3
tvveen pure night air from without and ^
un foul air from within. Most people prefer J.
>at the latter, an unaccountable choice. What *!
irs will they say if it is proved to be true that F
n? fully one-half of all the diseases we suffer
>as from are occasioned by people sleeping t
with their windows shut ? An open win- of
dow most nights in the year can never h
f? hurt any one. In great cities night air is
Pe often the best and purest to be had in the ei
en twenty-four hours. I could better under- g'
an stand shutting the windows in town dur- ir
"y ing the day than during the night, for the j
lUr sake of the sick. The absence of smoke, sc
es* the quiet, all tend to make night the best m
time f >r airing the patient. One of the ti
t i highest medical authorities on consump- ti
tor tion and climate has told me that the air q,
an of London is never so good as after 10 Cl
o'clock at night. Always air your room
^ then, from the outside air, if possible. J
Iut \Vindow3uro made to open, doors are made

at, a good horse will go further toward I t
d 5 keeping a boy on a farm than almost any I n
es, other influence that can be brought to bear
upon him. There is something wrong | jc
with the boy who does not love a good j a|
, horse when he has a chance to. The av- j 0,
'k" erage young American warms up to the h
lce noble animal naturally, and a very little
'? encouragement and instruction makes him r
"e a horseman. This is a good tendency to
Lr(r encourage. The farmer boy's horse should 1
nt be an intelligent, wide-awake animal?one i ?'
'as he can ride, drive or walk with pleasure? J "i
le" in fact, a business horse, for few few farm- | n(
j ers feel that they can keep a horse simply 9'
1 to ride or drive. It is surprising how j
of j much drudgery a boy will go through j ?
cheerfully with a team that he can feel f

T1IK MOTOR CAR.
The motor car is 18 feet long and 2.1 I
square at each end. It is pointed in fro
the wedge or point being below the Ion
tudinal center, adjusting it to the air pr
sure, thus keeping the car down to i
track. To reduce atmospheric friction I
minimum all wheels and electrical ap]
ances are placed within the walls of
cars. The road is to be built on the a
face of the ground, with track of 21 it
gauge, and will cost about $">,000 per mi
In thickly settled districts the road can
elevated, the varied length of the uprig
being a cheap mode of covering irregul
ities in the surface of the ground o<
which the road passes. The mail and <
press cars are telescoped in forming
train, the former into the end of the mo
car, and the latter into that of the one p
ceding it, forming a flexible train of ci
offering an unbroken surface to the i
The rear end of the rear car is pointed
a similar manner to the front of the mo
car, thus preventing any suction as
train rushes on its way. The motor ti
pull one car or a train of cars.
IIOW TRAINS WILT, RE CONTROLLEI
All trains will be controlled from a g
crating station, where will be placed
electrical generating plant. IClectri
brakes are to be used, and trai ns are start
stopped, speed lessened and backed
will from the station. Special applian
will inform the operator in charge of
generating station of the exact location
the train from the time it leaves or pi
es any given point until it reaches its t
tination. It has not yet been determir
how far apart the generating stations si
be placed. Possibly 100 miles may nol
out of range, as the current can be run
50 miles each way from the station a
center without much loss of electricity.
THE ELECTRICAL FORCE.
The electrical force may be generated
either steam or water power. The m
object, that of carrying heavy curre
over long distances, is attained by spei
methods. By these, in a given time
large number of trains may be dispatcl
with extraordinary rapidity and at cc
paratively little expense. The frequei
of the trains consumes only a sir
amount of power, and the fact that no
tendantson the train are necessary, con
tutes no small item in economy.
THE COMPANY'S PATENTS.
The patents of the company number
in the United Slates and the princi
countries of the world, covering the v
details of this novel system. The prii
pies patented involve specal form of r
making it impossible for trains to ju
the track at any rate of speed; form
electrical safety rail, carrying the out go
current and returning the same on
same rail (this rail can be crossed by
destrians or vehicles with perfect safet
form of conductors rails combined, \v
insulation of the same for carrying c
rents over long distances ; means of sti

trains from the generating stations; me
od of regulating the electrical current ai
matically on trains while in motion,
creasing the power in ascending and
creasing the same in descending grad
means whereby trains automatically r
ister themselves at every station as tl
pass every mile of the track ; form of jc

train below the axles. Patents have ?
been secured for a passenger system wh
applies to the conversion of existing ste
railroads into electric railroads, wh
cover the only safe mode of rapid trai
for passengers.
THE EXPERIMENTS AT LAUUEE.
A series of experiments have been m
at Laurel, Md., to show what the Wet
railway system will do. This ex peri m
tal line is a circuit of exactly two mi
Over this route there are twenty-n
changes of grade, some of them v
heavy, even to the extent of IDS feet to
mile. The generating plant there conts

mechannical and electrical inventi
tending to advance and improve

All tests of speed have been made uj
heavy grades and curves combined,
great ever to be required in the consti
tion of a commercial line, therefore
experiments demonstrate the high rati
speed which will be obtained upon li
built for business purposes. At this

THE CORBIN D
rpnu OORIIIX DISK HARROW has now 1 i
j Jf beon in the hands of farmers for moro than <
! fifteen years, and is to-day perhaps tho most \
i popular farming implement of its kind that \
j lias ever beon offered to them. It is used in I
j every State and Territory in the United States, c
I and "in Canada, Itnssia, Mexico, New Zealand, <
Australia, South America and Ireland. It has e
lieen awarded medals of superiority by the v
great American Institute Fair, The World's j
exposition at New Orleans, and at every State 1
and local display of agricultural implements t
whero exhibited. ; I
DESCRIPTION. J
Tho above illustration gives a correct idea t
of tho general appearance of theCorbin Harrow i
ready foruse. It has steel disks thatare turned j
to a knife edge. They aro firmly and substan- | ^
tially attached to the axle by means of a special ' [
nut and key which clamps them firmly in po- ! a
sition. It Is impossible to loosen this nut by \
any of tho accidents or operations of field work, H
but if desired to take tho Harrow to pieces, a ^
few moments' work will readily detach these f
parts and enable the operator to take off or get j a
out any of tho disks in either gang. r
It has a wooden T beam?steel axles?wooden j j
seat standards?wrought hand lever?anti-fric- t
tion balls in bearings. The Corhin Harrow f
was the first to adopt and soeure by letters of ; ?
patent, case hardened anti-friction halls for the \ f
journals, to prevent tho wearing of the boxes
and to lessen tho draft. The entire boxing is j
protected by sand bands and is furnished with !
self oiling boxes covered with adust proof oil
cap. The axle revolves in a bearing formed of !
eleven chilled iron balls, which makes the ma- ! t
chine the lightest draft harrow in the world. ^
Two sizes of disks are used. The smallest j
size is 11$ inches in diameter and tho largest ID. | t
Tho manufacturers make harrows with 12, a
ID, 20 and 24 disks each, but experience has *
demonstrated tho fact that tho Ill-inch, 12-disk, s
or the ID-inch, 12-disk, six foot cut, is best ^
adapted to general farm work. j
Tho price of tho Ill-inch, 12-disk, Harrow t
is $15.00 The price of the ID-inch, 12-disk, is j
?40.00. (
A Few Words of Praise for the Harrow. 1
. v
The following words of praise for tho t'orbin f
Disk Harrow aro published for the information j
of those of our readers who are not familiar ,
with this most valuable implement. As each
witness is known by a large number of our s
readers, either personally or by reputation, we j;
feel warranted in saying that their testimony |
will bo convincing to tho most skeptical: I s

I have used a Disk Harrow for years, and
would not be without one for four times its

important implement used, and will do moro

Mr. Rob't E. (iiitliric's Evidence.
tSlITHItlKSVII.I.K, S. C., .Tilly f), 1889.
Cai'T. Ij. M. (Dust: Dear Sir:?I have a
Corbin Disk Harrow which I have been using
for several years, and consider it the most valuable
farming implement of which I have any
knowledge. I use my Disk Harrow in sowing j
all of my small grain, and it does the work j
better than any implement I have ever used.
Land that has been cultivated in cotton or corn, t
may bo sown without any preparation whatever,
and an ordinary hand, with two mules,
can sow and cover six to eight acres in a day. <
All that is necessary is to sow the seed on the (
ground, and then run the Harrow ovor it one ,
time; but better results will be obtained if the . ,
Harrow is run over tho ground two or three j
times. As a tiino and money saver, aside from j
tho superior quality of work it does, its value (
can hardly bo estimated at the seasons at which .
the small grain is sown. The Harrow is very }
useful in pulverizing rough plowed land ofany .
kind, especially bottoms, and it will pay any ^
farmer to uso one. Unlike the ordinary tooth,
or Acme harrow, it not only pulverizes the ,
surface, but will pulvorizo to tho depth to j
which tho plow has gone and often dooper. It, j
can be used to advantage on land that is too j
wet to plow, without injury to tho land. There I
should, in my opinion, be a Disk Harrow on j '
every well regulated farm, and in my opinion t
no harrow yet introduced is equal to the Corbin ^
in simplicity, durability and thoroughness of t
work. Respectfully, * It. 1C. Guthrik.

ompotent to do the implement .justice, li
vill try to give some idea of my estimate of
aluc. I consider the Corbie Disk Harrow
?e the most valuable farming implement I ha
ivcr used, or ever expect to use, Thore is
ither implement of which I have any knov
(duo that will do as many dill'erent kinds
vork, or do the work so well. There is no ii
dement which will do equal service that

t is one of the few improved farming imp!
nents which can bo used to advantage by t

han pay for itself in one season if given //<

2-disk Corbin Harrow, the original price
vhich was $40, and although the implement h
jeen in use nearly five years, if it was imp<
iblo to get another, I would not take live tim
ts cost for it. In conclusion, let me say tl
ome of my assertions may sound extravaga

amiliar with the Corbin Harrow, but I w

nents, that I will take pleasure indemonstri
