About two miles from town Ito sud denly checked his horse, gazed intently on the ground aud said: ' Some fellow ltas lost his saddlc-hore here this mora- in-." ihero was no advertisement on any of the trees oflering a reward for a lost horse, and as there was no lost horse in sight wo were at a loss to understand how, if a hor(! wa lot, our friend could Know so much about it. ' The doctor inquired: How do you know that a horse has been lost?" I ee his track. Are there not hundreds of Lorcs pasturing on. the prairies and how do 5ou know that this is not the track of one 01 uienif "Because he is shod, and the horses herding on the prairies do not wear shoes.' "How do vou know that he Is a saddle-horse and lost?' "I M?e a rope track alongside his trad; the hore has a saddle on, and the rope hangs from the horn of the saddle." " lJut tthv mar ho not be a horse that some 0110 lias rfJilen o er this way this morning, and whv do you insUt that it 13 Iot? " IJecausc. if a man had been on his back ho would have ridden him on straizht course, tut this horse has mot oil from side to side of the road as he strolled alonir, and that is a plain sign that he gra7ed as ho w ent and that he had no rider." "After thatit would not surprise me," raid the doctor, "if pu were to tell us the ase of the horse, aud the name of the owner." "Well, that vould not be very hard to do.

Texas Stjtitigs. Hints About Turnip IUMn?. There is no late or second crop that can be more easily grown, or more ijuickly brought to maturity, than one of the strap-Fea cd varieties'of turnips. And on almost any place where vegeta bles are grown can be found at this sea son a piece of laud w here this crop can be conveniently grown. The turnip crop is often considered a coar-c and common one, but we learn to appreciate it when, it cannot readily be obtained, as was shown by the high rates paid for the almost worthless foreign turnips which were imported the pit winter. If It is intended to raise tnmips large ly, and do tho work of cultivating Dy llorsc-pow er, the sow ing should alw av s be done with that end in view, as in a field where such a crop is grown there can be no greater mi-take than that of having the rows too close together, thus prev cnting horse ctilth ation. In the cultivation of all root crops the soil should be fine, smooth and rich, the latter being highly cs-ential to the pro duction ot tine roots. The land should also be as free froni weeds and weed seeds a? possible. A noted onion grower said, a few j ears since, tint he who plants onions on weed- ground will repent it all summer on his hands and knees; and the same is true in a measure of turnip culture. Turniji growers who desire the best re-ults pre lcr to have the soil for this crop prepared n few weeks or months ahead, in order to have it thoroughly settled. Ihey are sometimes grow n as a second crop to follow pease w ithout plow ing thesod afresh. If the soil be dry, a good degree of firmness can be given to it by rolling it; but wet land should never be rolled. If the manure be fine and can be aj plicd liberally, it may be spread broad cast and v ery lightly plowed in. or h ir rowed in with a heavy harrow; or. if preferred, furrows can be opened at the proper distances, and the mannre spread therein aud cov ercd. This plan is more economical of the manure. If commer cial fertilizers are applied, it is best to put them as close to the seed as they can be placed without doing injury, but they should be somewhat incorporated with the soil in order to li.ne them in the best shape for plant-food, dood wood ashes are a most excellent fertil izer for turnips, and this is one reason w hy the- do so well on new land that has been burnt over. Potash, super phosphate of lime, and Peruvian guano are also excellent fertilizers. When land is abundant or rough, the rows may lie three feet apart; but horse cultivation can be done when the rows are as close as tvv o feet. A mistake is sometimes made in -"ridging" up the rows of turnips, a practice which, on dry soils, is often detrimental to their growtlu The rows shou'd be as nearly straight as po-siblc, to allow- the culti vator to run evenly and cIomj to the rows, thereby saving time in hoeing. Plenty of seed should be used, as it in surcs'evenncss of plants in the rows, which is not so likely to be obtained when it is sown spin ngly. Turni-eed can be sown very satisfactorily with the seed-drill, as its round sliape cau-e- it to distribute freely. As soon a the plants appear, attention should be given to the weeds. Xowherein horticultural oiierations is "a stitch in time .saves nine" so true. If weeds are attended to in season, it not only saves much time and Hbor in removing them, b'lt tho vouug plants ai e left undi-turbed. To insiiro a good crop, the soil should he kept mellow and free from weed5 throughout the season. Thinning should be done a? soon it me plains oeconie strong enongn 10 en dure the operation. When thethinning requires considerable labor, it niav be done to a great extent w ith a hoe'nar row enough to keep the turnips the proper distincc apart by striking out the turnips in bunches, so that lhoc which remain miy be thinned bj hand. The amount of thinning i'ceosir wijl depend considerably on the strength of the land, rich soil requiring a greater ditanco between the roots than poor soiL should the turnip-fly become troublesome, the planU should be uited with air-slacked lime or soot; bnt tha-ie pests do npt usually do much dama n after the plants attain their second leaves.
