Confident of a reneh Crop.
Tlie Hanford Enterprise publishes the
following in relerence to tbo peach
All signs at this writing go to show
that this section of the county will tlds
year produce a peach and apple crop
equal to the largest known to the oldest
inhabitant. The buds have had au un
interrupted growth from the start, and
they are now under full headway, and
beyond tlie reach of damage by frost.
Peach growers are consequently in good
humor, and holds their heads as high
and slit) as kings. They feel the com
ing of a snug pile of " filthy lucre,"
and well they may, as the peach crop
•st is a partial failure, having
been badly damaged by cold wheatber,
ami good prices will no doubt lie ob
tained tor a large crop of tbe Delaware
The Middletown Transcript has the
season one false prophet to rise up and
say that the peach crop was killed by a
frost or a blizzard with very cold feet.
Folks living outside of tbo peach belt
don't know what to make of this steady
run of favorable reports. Some of them
pretend that they would feel better sat
isfied about the safety of the crop If
they could hear just, once that it had
been slightly frsst-bitten ; but they are
only trying to bo sarcastic._

A Rib Breaker.
A queer case has just come to light
in Chicago. A young man spent an
evening with a girl, and, during the
evening, while the family were present
in the parlor, he was as demure, and
bland,and childlike as could be wished.
The mother caine into the room, after
the family had retired, to get a hand
kerchief she had left, and the young
man was seated in a chair in the middle
room, while the girl was seated on a
sofa, and nothing that the mother
in the actions of either led
her to think they were more than pass
ing acquaintances It seemed to her
if tue young people had met before,

but there was no
were very well acquainted. All night,
after he had gone, the girl cofflph
of a pain in her wide, and in the morn
ing » doctor wai, called and he found
that two of the girl's ribs were broken.
How it was done tiohody knew'. The
girl could not tell for the life of her,
though she blushed when asked about
it, and the mother looked very wise as
she looked at the doctor. The doctor
made some inquiries, set, the ribs, and
went away, and the girl proceeded to
recover. That evening the young man
called and was astonished when in
formed of the young girl's injuries, and
wondered how it could have happened,
though the mother watched his face
close as he spoke, and detected not only
a blush, but a profuse perspiration on
She had been a girl once herself, and
though she had never had any ribs
broken, she bad been hugged some,
was a trying position for all of them.
The father was away on a trip to Wis
rfcen he came home the
plained to him
matter bail to be
told that the ribs juet simply broke
themselves anil that neither the mother,
nor the girl, nor the young
aeconut for it, aud yet all three of
them blushed terribly. The father pot
ted bis giri on tbe bead, told her she
would be better when she got over it,
and then called the young man into
the library. Tbe young man

lie sat down be took out a handkerchief
aud mopped Ids tirow
s dead. The fattier looked the
young man over and was sorry,
nally said :
"Young man, I guess I can give you
some points on bugging. You must
iirst learn that a girl is not. constructed
an Iron fence
on the same principle s
truss bridge. A girl is a delicate
piece of mechanism, like a fine watch,
full of little springs, wheels, jewels,
etc. The breaking ot any of these
would cause her to cease keeping time,
and necessitate her being taken to a
jeweler for repairs. Iu hugging a girl

I know that where
family sits up late with the young
couple, und spoils several precious
hours of hugging, that unless the young
man lias a good head, when left alone
with the subject of his affection, that
he is liable to overdo the matter, and
try to make up for lost time. He seems
to want to hug up a lot ahead, and
grabs the girl as though he wauted to
break her in two.
" This in wrong. Y'ou should go at it
calmly and deliberately, even prayer
fully, aud be as gentle as though she

of the hand that a girl loves, even the
touch, is as dear to her as though you
rah her through a stonecrusher.
should not grab her es you would a bag
of oats,and leave marks onjher that will
last a lifetime. A loving woman should
not be be made feel that her life is in
danger unless she wears a corset made
of boiler iron. I hope this will be a
lesson to you, and hereafter, if you can
not control your feelings, I will provide
a wooden Indian for you to practise
at first, until you have developed
your muscle, and gut tired, and then
can turn our daughter loose in a
rosm with you and not feel that it is
necessary to keep a surgeon handy.
" In allowing you to keep company
with my daughter I do not agree to pro
vide you with a human gymnasium,
dressed in a Mother Hubbard wrapper,
and wearing bangs. You can readily
see that a girl would not last a season
through if she had to have ribs set once
a week. Please think this thing over,
and if the girl Is well enough next Sun
day you can drop in and try some more
ribs. Now you go home and hug a hat
rack for an hour or two, and have it
repaired in the morning."
The young man went out into the
night air, took his hat oft'to cool his
head and hired a man to kick him.

KKBOSKNB TO KILL INCECTS.
Since the illuminating oil obtained
from petroleum, know in this country
kerosene,and in England as paraffine
oil, came into general use, it has been
employed with variable success as an
insecticide. That it would destroy insect
life was long ago established; that it
would also destroy plant life was some
times demonstrated in a manner more
convincing than pleasant. The oil in
its concentrated form can be tolerated
by but few plants. The improvement
in its use was to add a very small quan
tity to a bucket of water, enough to
make but a mere film upon the surface;
then diffuse it through the water by
violent stirring,and apply before the oil
and water had time to seperate.This an
swered fairly well, but was trouble
some. The next step was to divide
the kerosene, not by dissolving it. but
by diffusing it in the form of an einul
It in well known that oils maybe
miepeiitietl in water by means of gutn,
euxar, etc., and may be kept tliue for
some hours or even days. It hasbeen
discovered that milk, either fresh or
soured, is a convenient medium to unite
keroHHne ami water
kcroaeneacd half aa much milk, ntir
ring them thoroughly to form a cream
like mixture. When the two are ho
completely united that no oil is visible,
dilute the mixture with twelve times its
bulk of water, adding the water gradu
ally, and stirriug thoroughly. This
emulsion has been f und especially
useful in tbe treatment of the various
scale insects, so difficult to destroy by
ordinary insecticides, and is used for
various other insect pests. For trees
use a syringe or iorce pump, and for
house plants, often injured by scale lu
sts, apply with a sponge or swab.
THE YIELD OK WHEAT.
A correspondent of the Country Gen
tleman, residing in Shelby County, Ky.,
gives some valuable information ot his
method of increasing the yield of wheat.
He moved to that county in 1HM, when
rheat crop there was only
eight, bushels per acre. This fact was
often talked ever at farmers' clubs,
granges, etc., with a view to increase
the yield. After experimenting with
several fertilizers and selecting pure
ground bone rneal as the best for wiieat,
and sowing two hundred pounds to the
acre, the average yield per acre quickly
rose to twelve bushels, but. the cost of
the ground hone, which was $;!0 per
ton, was too expensive for the general
farmer, hence other experiments were
made ; some trying wheat, after clover;
others the refuse salt from pork houses,
top dressing, after the wheat was
up up some three or four inches, at the
rate of four bushels per acre.
The latter was found to he very bene
ficial by increasing the crop,
iug the straw aud escaping lucects. The
roots of the former, from the amount of
ammonia they attracted and ahsorbeJ,
acted as an incentive to the growth of
the plant, and of course to the yield of
the grain ; and by these aud other ap
plications the yield per acre ran up to
from Iwenty to twenty-five bushels per
acre, and frequently from twenty-five
to thirty ! This change from eight to
twenty-five bushels shows beyond all
question what intelligent cultivation
w ill do. The correspondent concludes
his article by saying—" My preference
is wheat after clover, with now aud
then a top dressing of salt." This suf

PULVERIZATION OK THE SOIL.
The following experiment made by
th i editor of the Live Stock Journal
shown fie uroat importance of the thor
ough p'i . ..-rization of the noil : " We
ue ri men ted by hauling twenty
mo loads of the best manure
acres of clay-loam land, had
■o.l cultivated into the soil, which
had neon worked iu the ordinary way,
but was somewhat lumpy. This and
tlio adjoining two acres were to be
sown to corn for fodder. Upon the
other two ac
it was plowed and cultivated till the
soil, four inches deep, was as fine as a
garden bed. One and a half bushels of
corn were drilled per acre upon each
piece, drills 10 inches apart.
When this com was in blossom and
ready to cut, the uuinanured two
acres stood eighteen inches higher than
the manured piece. In selecting two
sample rods in different places
upon each piece, cutting
green corn and carefully weighing
it, the manured piece gave 270 pounds
per rod and the unmanured, but finely
pulverized,gave 250 pounds per rod, the
manured giving twenty-two tons per
acre and the other twenty-eight tons
The cost of extra work
ing was $2.50 per acre,
ho any doubt that the extra work was
well paid for? It must be evident to
every thoughtful farmer that the first
thing to be done iu furnishing food
for crops is to work more thoroughly
and give finer pulverization, and when
this is accomplished, then au applica
