A polite man, well dressed and benevolent
ofr countenance, called on the superintendent
of the K. A F. railway.
"I shall not detain you but a moment,"
said the stranger, accepting the chair which
the railroad man courteously offered, "for my
business, though of much importance to me,
may be of small concern to so rich a corporation
as the one you represent. Early this
morning I got on a train at Bradway's. I
had just time enough to catch the train, and
consequently did not get a ticket. The train
was crowded and the conductor did not get
round to me; indeed, I looked for him but
oould not find him, so I came in without
paging my tare. As I remarked a moment
ago, it may be of small concern to your rich
corporation, but it is an important matter to
my pefcce of mind. My conscience, sir,
would not permit me to pocket money that
belongs to others; and so I have called to
give you one dollar and a half. Here is
your money."
The superintendent took the money and
said: "Such honesty, sir, is extremely rare.
Would you mind telling me your name?"
"Surely not. I am R. B. Millirons."
"Thank you. I have to step into another
room a moment. Will you kindly await my
return ?"
"Assuredly, sir."
The superintendent went into a room some
distance away and, over the telephone, called
up the sheriff's office. "Make out a warrant
for the arrest of one R. B. Millirons, for robbery,
and send an officer here at once."
The superintendent returned to the room
where he had left the honest and courteous
visitor. "We are having some very pleasant
weather for the time of year," said the superintendent.
"Yes, very. Indeed, I was thinking this
morning that we should all feel thankftil for
the many blessings showered upou us. The
sensational threat of a money panic has
passed and a number of vile and grinding
trusts have gone to the wall of justice. Well,
I must be going. I owe a grocer for a barrel
of flour and promised to pay him this morning."
"Pray don't be in a hurry. It is so rare
that one meets such a man that a little talk
with him is refreshing."
'"You greatly surprise me," said the visitor.
"I have never had much to do with
high railroad officials and have heard that
they are as a class harsh and imperious. I
must say, however, that you are one of the
most agreeable men it has ever been my
good fortune to meet."
"Don't mention it," the superintendent
answered, looking toward the door. "Please
don't be in a hurry," he added as the visitor
"I should like to stay longer, but really I
must go and pay for that flour."
"Ob, the fellow can wait. Come in." A
man had appeared in the doorway. "This is
he," (pointing to the honest fellow).
"I am a deputy sheriff," said the newcomer,
addressing the honorable gentleman,
"and I have a warrant for your arrest."
"What? A warrant for my arrest? I
don't understand you, sir."
"Perhaps I can explain," said the superintendent.
"Some time ago, somebody robbed
an express messenger on one of our
trains, and I am convinced that you are the
man. I never saw you before, and of course
know nothing about you, but a man that
would come in to pay a railroad one dollar
and a half that a conductor had failed to
collect is either a fool or a robber, and as
you are not a fool, you must be tne otner
fellow. At any rate we will try you on the
charge of robbery."
The fellow was tried, was proved guilty
and is now serving a term in the penitentiary.
A Sad Appeal.?A middle-aged, healthylooking
man, who had called at the postoffice
for a letter several days running, returned
yesterday with the usual inquiry, and
was answered as before:
"No letter for you."
"Are you quite sure ?" he earnestly asked.
"Oh, yes."
"Alas! but I can't make it out!" sighed
the man. "I should have had one Monday,
and this uncertainty unnerves me."
"Expecting to hear from some of your
friends?" queried the clerk, touched by his
"Yes?my wife."
"She is away from home?"
"Yes?in Buffalo,"
"Any one ill ?"
"No, not exactly."
"But you were so anxious I thought it
might be a matter of life or death."
"It is, almost. You Bee, she cooks in a
restaurant and sends me five dollars per
week to live on here, and this is the first
time in six months I have missed a letter on
Monday. I don't know what to think. She
may be ill?she may be out of a job?she
may. have gone back on me. I may even
have to go to work again and earn my living
! Please be very, very sure that you
have not overlooked my expected letter."
Needed Water.?A North Carolinian
went to a physician and requested to be
treated. "What seems the matter with
you?" the doctor asked.
"I don't know. My tongue is parched
and my throat is cracked and my lips, you
see, are chapped until they bleed."
The doctor examined him closely. "Yes,
there is something the matter with you, undoubtedly."
"Do you think that you can cure me ?"
"I can and will cheerfully undertake the
"All right, and what will you charge?"
"Five dollars."
"All right, the money shall be yours just
as soon as a elire is effected."
"Good enough. The truth is you don't
need any medicine. All you have to do is
to drink some water."
"That's a fact," the patient exclaimed.
"I knew there was something that I neeeded,
but to save me I couldn't think what it was.
Well, here's your money, anyway. A man
ought to be willing to pay for information."
She Will be Left.?Yesterday forenoon
a mother and her ten-year-old son got
into some sort of dispute in front of the
city hall, and he wheeled about and said to
"I won't do it, and you bet I won't!"
"Then take that!" she exclaimed, as she
fetched him a box on the ear and walked
The boy stood holding his ear when a
newsboy approached and asked:
"Was it your mother ?"
"Yes "
"Hurt much?"
"Going to give her anything for Christmas."
"Not much ! I was going to, but now she
can hang up her old stocking and be hanged
! I've got her a handkerchief, a paper of
pins, and four yards of calico: and got them
hid in the woodshed, and now I'll go home
and trade off the outfit for a peck of peanuts,
and eat everyone of them myself."?Detroit

Tried in the Crucible.?An individu-j
al of rather doubtful, not to say suspicious '
appearance, applied to a prominent coal
dealer the other day for a position as driver.
Upon being asked for references he mention-'
ed one of the dealer's old hands, who was
called up and questioned as to the candidate's
honesty. The "reference" rubbed his chin
meditatively a moment, and then answered :
"Honest! Veil, boss, dis yere man's honesty
have been proved befo' de cote. He's i
been tried sebeu times for stealin' and escap-:
ed ebery time!"
This dubious recommendation didn't help ,
the applicant's chances, and he was told to i
get out.?Washington Post.

Sometimes I am tempted to murmur,
That life is flitting away,
With only a round of trifles
Filling each busy dayDusting
nooks ana corners,
Making the house look fair,
And patiently taking on me
The burdens of woman's care.
Comforting childish sorrows,
And charming the childish heart
With the simple song and story
Told with a mother's art;
Setting the dear home table,
Ana clearing the meal away,
And going on little errands
In the twilight of the day.
One day is just like another!
Sewing und pieceing well
Little jackets and trousers,
So neatly that none can tell
Where are the seams and joinings?
. Ah! the seamy side of life
Is kept out of sight by the magic
Of many a mother and wife!
And oft, when I'm ready to murmur
That time is flitting away
With the self-same round of duties
Filling each busy day,?

You are living, toiling for life's sake,
And the loving should never repine.

Living your life for love's sake,
Till the homely cares grow sweet?
And sacred the self-denial
That is laid at the Master's feet.
Disappointed with the Lymph.?After
experimenting for over two months with the
Koch lymph in New York city, on about
three hundred and fifty persons, members of
the medical profession of that city consider
Koch's lymph a disappointment, and aver
that the discoverer's claims for it are shown
by their experiments, to be unfounded.
The New York Herald gives the opinions
of several very emiueiit practitioners to
show that it is valueless as a diagnostic,
that it does not cure consumption, and
that it is not the specific it was thought to
be. No one has proved it to have an elective
affinity, as claimed for tubercular tissue.
Conservative men declare that the cure for
consumption is quite as far beyond the reach
of the profession as it was before the lymph
was known. Dr. George F. Slirady, at St.
Frances's hospital and the New York Cancer
hospital, says: "We are awaiting proofs that
the new method of cure is quicker and surer
than the old one." Dr. J. Newton Heineman,
visiting surgeon of Mount Sinai hospital,
where the most numerous experiments
have taken place, and of the Polyclinic hospital,
where most interesting experiments
have been made, said he had abandoned
treatment in all cases which did not show a
marked amelioration under the lymph influence,
and continued: "I am convinced that
by itself the lymph is not a specific for
phthisis. It is only a means among many
others of improving the condition of consumptive
patients, but it is very far from being
a remedy of such potency that it may
av/.U?o?/\? nf flin Tf iu

of very little virtue as a diagnostic." Dr. H.
P. Loomis of Bellevue hospital thinks sufficient
time has not yet elapsed to justify a
statement as to the benefit, if any, to be
expected from injections of Koch's lymph
in consumption.
Cold Waves.?Cold waves are those sudden
changes from high to very low temperature
which constitute the most noteworthy
feature of winter weather in the United
States. They are produced by the flow of
masses of cold, dry air from the regions east
of the Rocky Mountains in British America,
towards the south or southwest. During
the long winter nights of the Arctic regions,
dry, clear air accumulates in deep layers
which is cooled by radiation to a temperature
many degrees below zero; and then begins
to flow towards any place where warm air
is ascending, as it does in the low pressure
areas or storms which .constantly pass from
west to east across the United States.
A "low area" is produced by the air
somewhere becoming heated from unknown
causes above the surrounding atmosphere.
This excessively heated air ascends and the
air is drawn in below from all sides to replace
it. That drawn in on the south to
east side is warm and moist; that drawn
from the north to west side is dry and cold.
The cold wave follows after the low area as
it moves eastward.
The severer and prolonged cold waves
are associated with extensive areas of high
pressure. Their rate of progress average
eight hundred miles in twenty-four hours.
It is of great advantage to many business
and agricultural interests to know in advauce
when the temperature will full quickly
and decidedly, besides affecting the comfort
and health of thousands of people.?C. F.
von Hermann.
The Origin ok "Sub Rosa."?The Latin
phrase "sub rosa" is used in elegant speech
to indicate secrecy, and means "under the
rose" or "not to be told." The origin of the
saying is as follows : The first rose that was
ever seen was given to Harpocrates, the god
of silence, by Cupid, to induce the former
not to betray Venus in her questionable go-1
ings on ; and from this myth the ancients I
made it a symbol of silence, and it was a
custom to place a rose above their heads in
their banqueting rooms, in order to indicate
that nothing said or done was to he told
outside. A company of wise men once handed
themselves together into a club?though
they did not call it by that name?whose sole
object was mutual improvement. For the
furtherance of this object, they swore each j
other to silence during their meetings, the
conversation being carried on by means of
symbols and pantomime. At length came a
man wiser than all the rest asking for admission.
They would gladly have received
him, but their prescribed number was already
filled, to indicate which fact they sorrowfully
filled a wine-glass to the brim with wine, so
that a drop more would make it overflow.
He understood, and quick as thought dropped
a rose leaf upon the brimmin liquid, where
it floated without making it i un over. The |
wise men were so delighted at this that they j
stretched their rules and received him with |
great joy. And so has come down to us "the |
rose leaf 011 the brimming wine cup."
Don't bk Too Strict.?"We can pin j
boys down 011 benches, we can restrain tlieni,
from restlessness, we can coerce them to!
walk sedately, we can withhold their hands
from exploration and mischief, and their
whole bodies from rollicking activity; and
in doing so we are modifying the development
of their brains."
This is the opinion of a great medical authority,
and should, together with the weight
of evidence from other sources, accomplish
some reform in the present treatment of
boys in school, and girls as well. Courses of j
study are too little diversified and appeal to j
the intellect for too long a time at once, j
The eye and the ear have too prominent a
place in education, and all spontaniety of
action is wrongfully repressed. Physical exercise
at proper periods and changes from
mental to manual work and vice versa, as
occasion may require, are elements of growth
that are sadly neglected by teachers.
To Look Well is a Duty.?It is right for
people to look as well as they can. He who
made all things, says one, is a lover of the
beautiful. He could have made the world
without its tinted skies and golden sunsets.
He could have made it without its majestic
clouds painted in gorgeous colors. He could
have made the flowers without their exquisite
lieauty, but Solomon in all his glory was not
arrayed like one of these. The Creator's
works on every hand declare Him to be a
lover of the beautiful. It is right, therefore,
to lav tribute 011 all things at our command
calculated to improve personal appearance.
What Hoksks Dik Of.?A New York
horse life insurance company, insuring only
sound and generally young animals, worth
between $100 and $400 each, reports that, of
704 horses dying within the past live years,
18:* died of eolie, 77 of inflammation of the
bowels, 74 of kidney trouble, 51 of pneumonia,
52 of sunstroke, 50 of pinkeye, 57 of lockjaw,
25 of broken legs, 12 of epizootic, 10 of heart
disease, 4 of blind staggers, 0 killed by runaways,
4 were drowned, 2 were killed by
lightning, 12S died of unknown diseases, and
only S were burned.
ft^tiod knows where we can do the most
good better than we do. Hence it is well for
us to realize that we are just where we ought
to be when we are in the place where (Sod
has sent us. "If each drop of" rain chose
where it should fall," says Charles Kingsley,
"(iod's showers would not fall, as they do
now, on the evil and the good alike." So it
is that the world is benefitted by (lod's choosing
the place for his individual workers in
the world.
?&e Jam and
Mr. George W. Truitt is a successful farmer
on the intensive plan, as everybody knowB
who has been to the Piedmont Exposition
for the last year or so. Last fall he and
Mrs. Truitt carried off several thousand dollars
in prizes for their displays?Mr. Truilt
in the products of the farm, and Mrs. Truitt
in a multitude of exhibits of the housewife's
The picturesque plantation cabin, surrounded
by a real cotton patch, which attracted
so much attention at the previous
exposition, was Mr. Truitt's conceit.
The point of this article is the renaissance
of intensive farming. A dozen years ago it
was much talked of, and the Hon. Farris
Furman, its apostle, stirred up a great deal
of enthusiasm for the new culture. Since
then the idea has been quietly but steadily
growing. Each year has raised up some
new advocate of the system, and in some
counties it has been extensively adopted.
The scarcity of labor has now made intensive
farming a pressing question. It has
almost come to be a necessity. The migration
of the negroes within the last two years
has in many instances, left the planters with
a large crop in the field and nobody to harvest
it. This has caused loss and has forced
the owners of land to consider means of
culture with fewer hands. Happily it has
been found to be much more profitable than
the old way. Mr. Truitt says it will be the
salvation of the country, and he has come to
the conclusion through experience.
At the request of The Constitution Mr.
Truitt gives a description of the method
which, in his pointed words, "brings contentment
and happiness." Here is what he
"There is uo question in the minds of^lT
serving people that we are drifting to the
small farm. In fact, our labor Is so disorganized
and unreliable that the day of profit
on the plantation is gone except in rare instances
where the owner is a man of exceptional
executive ability, and has reduced all
his operations down to the most economic
business system. By hard work and constant,
unremitting attention to details, I have
succeeded in bringing average poor land up
to where it averages a bale 1o the acre. Of
course some land produces more than other.
On eighty acres of my individual crop last
year I made 104 bales, averaging 470 pounds
per bale. On seventy acres my tenants made
forty-six bales, or on 150 acres of land 150
bales of cotton. Tins is a plai n statement of
a simple fact. As to how I ilc this:
"First, I break about one-half of my land
with a two-horse plow, alternating each year,
ploughing very deep. The other half I bed
with square pointed scooters.
"I lay off my rows four feet wide, running
a sr-onter in front and a Johnson wing the
opposite direction in the same furrow. In I
that furrow I place the cotton seed for fertilizer
as early after Christmas as possible, |
forty bushels to the acre. About the 10th j
or 15th of March I put on top of these seed
400 pounds, of acid per acre. I find the j
heavy rains wash the sand irto the furrows!
and mix it thoroughly with the seed, which j
is very beneficial. Then bed fiat, with square-;
pointed scooters. When the cotton seed can- *
not be had, I use 500 pounds of gossypium I
per acre just before planting. O n my thirsty ;
land I run a subsoil plow over the fertilizer,
in order to mix it thoroughly vrith the soil.
"On my bottom land I put 1,000 pounds of
fertilizer per acre in the drill and two list
furrows, and mix it well with the soil. With
the planting seed I put 250 pounds additional.
From the 11th of May to the 20th of;
June I broadcast 750 pounds pur acre ahead I
of the ploughs. On bottom lands I use a
mould board, making the beds a little high-1
er than on the upland.
"Before planting I run a Thomas harrow \
across the beds ahead of the planter, which i
destroys the early grass and makes the land
fresh and level. With a Brooks's planter I
put in two bushels of seed per acre to insure
a good stand, using 100 pounds of fertilizer
with seed on the upland.
"As soon as cotton on upland begins to
break the crust in coming up, I start my
harrows, running them obliquely across the
first time, and afterwards directly across the
harrow rows. Then follow with an eighteen-inch
scrape and short scooter, runningshallow.
Then start the hoes, every hand
carrying a three-foot stick to measure the

after the first time a tweuty-four-inch scrape,
ploughing up to the 1st of August.
"On my bottom land I make the rows five
feet apart, and bring the stand down to
four feet between hills by taking a twentyfour-inch
scrape and running two furrows
across the rows, leaving a belt of three inches
to form the stand. This enables me to
plow both ways, leaving but little work to
the hoes. This is better than dropping in
the check and ensures a better stand.
"I find that from the 20th of March to the
10th of April is the best time to plant cotton.
I have improved my seed from year to year
from the best stalks, until now my cotton is
at least 100 per cent, better than it was
eight years ago, when I began improving it.

"I do not know that I could improve on

know that a man can make twenty acres pay

worth by fertilizing with peas iu the spring
and rye iu the fall?turned under and not
cut at all. I follow the next year with cotton.
As an example of this, three years
ago I had a tenant who made twelve bales
on twenty acres of land. The following
year that land was sowed in peas in the
spring and rye in the fall, and last year it
made twenty bales of cotton.
"To get the best results from twTnty
acres in cotton, starting with ordinary, wornout
farm land, the lirst thing to be done is
to thoroughly terrace the land, in order that
that there will be 110 waste from washing. I
The terraces must Ik; made strong and 011 a
level. When so made they will not be any
trouble after the second year ; then prepare
and fertilize as above. Deep ploughing iu
the preparation of land is essential. Alter
the plant is up of course the shallower the
cultivation the better. About the 20th of
July the cotton should all be topped, as that
makes it mature earlier and often saves much
damage from the caterpillar. Most people
wait to late to top their cotton and consequently
fail to get the real benefit from the

I Constitution.
It is well to plant early. If frost cuts
1 down the young plants no harm will come of
| it. If it kills them, it is not very great labor;
i to plant over again. A bushel of seed plants '
[ about eight acres, so seed is not a matter of!
: great consideration. But why plant early VI
i Because, as a rule, early planted corn ears j
best. It does not make so much stalk, bull
j expends its energy in making larger ears
; Again, an early crop is apt to mature before
the great heat and drought of summer comes.!
j Much corn is planted just in time to sull'er
| from these. Early planted corn does not inj
terfere with the cultivation of si cotton crop
jus much as one planted a few weeks later.
: Alt early planted crop is more apt to escape
I the hud-worm. This does not begin its depI
reflations until the weather gets pretty warm,
j and by that time early planted corn will be
too advanced to be much injured. Again
if early planting fails to secure a stand, one
can plow up and plant over again before the
season is very far advanced.
In planting early one must cover the
seed very shallow. The reason for this is
! two fold. First*, the ground is very liable
j to pack, hake and crust in early spring, and
. when this happens the young corn often fails
j to get through and reach the surface, if it
has much thickness of soil to come through ;
'second, the grain requires a certain amount
I of heat to germinate (will not sprout when
j average temperature is below forty) and this
; it will get near the surface more quickly
1 than when it is deep down ?for the ground
t is cold in the spring-ami the warming up
' begins at the surfacti and travels downward,
j Later tin; ground may get too dry near the)
j surface, to bring seed up, hut there is little i
j danger of this in the very early spring, j
Cover shallow, hut cover with a little ridge
over the grain to prevent water settling
(over it, and making the soil hard. If the)
seed ha* been very carefully selected and
is sound, one grain at a place is apt to come
up and secure a stand as a number of grains;
but out of abundant caution, it is well to drop
two in a place. It is thought that a weak
solution of saltpetre is a protection against
bud wo:."ms, and makes the young corn
grow off'better.
The question is often asked, shall we plant
home raised seed or that from a distance.
There is nothing gained by procuring seed
from a distance. Corn does not deteriorate
from being planted long in the same locality.
Get the variety that has given best results
in your neighborhood. If weavils are bad,
perhaps it is better to plant the hard, flint
varieties, where they are not, thegourdseed,
or what the Northern fanners "call dent"
varieties are very good. There is an exception
about getting seed from n distance. It is
in case of early varieties. Always get seed
of these from the North. They lose their
earliness after two years cropping at the
South.?W. L. J., in Atlanta Constitution.
Care Pays.?It has been demonstrated
that a good common cow, treated as the
choice Jerseys are, will give better return
than a finely bred hut neglected Jersey.
This discovery has had the effect of bringing
down the price of Jerseys to a point which

men. The editor of a Vermont journal is
credited with being the owner of a "stubtailed,
one-horned, 'yaller' cow, with no pedigree,"
which last year, besides furnishing
the milk for a family of ten persons, supplied
more than $100 worth, sold to the
editor's neighbors who had the misfortune to
own cows with long pedigrees. Whatever
exaggeration there may be in the tale as
told, it is certainly true that good feeding
and care will do wonders in developing
latent bovine poweis. By crossing the
"scrubs" with better blood and treating th%
offspring as if they were thousand dollar
stock, a vast improvement should be effected
in the character of the ordinary dairy
stock and in the profits of the dairymen.
But even without the crossing, good feeding
and care will greatly increase the supply
and improve the quality of the milk of most
cows of the ordinary breed.?San Francisco

Every Uorbin Harrow, whatever the size, isar- 1
ranged so that a Seeder can bo attached to it. s
The See<l Box and its machinery are of the most T
simple and compact character. All its metul

Its weight is (of the size to tit the No. 7, 12-disk

The Seeder Attachment is removable at pleasure.
It locks itself tinnly to the Harrow frame
by simply putting it into position. Neither bar,
1 m>1 t, wedge, key, screw or pin, is used to fasten
it. Therefore, no hammer, wrench or other tool |
is required to attach or detach it. Haifa minute I
