BROOM CORN SEED.
Tradition Snya Franklin PlulH tkt
First One In Thla Country.
Every housewife is supposed to know
low to handle a broom, but It Is safe
to say that not one in ten has any
clear idea of what her sweeping utensil
Is made of or how it Is made or where
sent to the front, where, owing to his "the material came from. Brooms are
bravery and soldiery qualities, he was
rapidly promoted uutil he attained the
rank of brigadier-general. He was a,
cousin of Hon. W. R. Day, late a mem
ber of President McKinley's cabinet
and whole now one of the judges of the
United States Circuit court.
made from the heads or brushes of
the broom corn, a first cousin to our
common field corn. And In this con
nection is told a very pleasant little
fairy story concerning Benjamin
Franklin. "Poor Itlchard," by the
way, seems to have been about the
biggest Jack of all trades that ever
helped the United States to become the
richest and most powerful nation of
the world.'* If this story Is true, he is
the patron saint of the housewife and
the broomm&ker, fes well as a kite
filer, lightning' catcher, printer, pub
lisher, editor, .author, philosopher,
statesman nnd other things "too nu
merous to mention."
Broom.corn first grew in India. From
there It was carried to Europe. The
story goes that Dr. Franklin was ex
apilning a whisk ty-oom that had been
brought over from' England in the
da^s before w^jbad any broom corn of
our own. tTe' foOTKl a. slngle seed on
the broom, picked-It off, planted It and
raised ia stalW. Of corn from which is
descended, so to speak, alt of the
broomJcorn of .'the United States.
at
However this may be, broom corn
grows much like Its first cousin, our
maize, which- originated here. The
hend Is larger, however, and the seedB
grow on tlx Jijad Instead. of In ears.
The heads are..cut.off. leaving about
HIX Inches of stalk, and the seeds are
scraped off by a machine, which doeB
a clean job and does not Injure the pan
icles. The seeds are valuable in a
way. They are fed to horses and poul
try and ground Into meal for cattle.
In the making of the brooms, the corn
Is put around a handle of basswood
or soft maple turned In a lathe. Each
layer Is wound tight with twine or
wire until the desired size Is attained.
The broom Is than pressed out flat and
sewed to keep It In that shape. Whisk
brooms are made In the same way.—

AN EFFECT OF LIGHTNING.
Damscti a Pair of Eru That Wsrs
Larvt m*d Bright.
Through the brotherhood of affliction
that comes from wearing glasses In
one of their various forms a popular
official of the Rapid Tran'slt company
told In-conversation the. other day of
a curious rea&m why he wore prescrip
tion helps to 'iyeslght. "It was because
I was struck ijj lightning," he said. "It
was when I'was In my teens. I sat
between an open window and an open
door and there was a flash. The last
I can remember is a sense of having an
envelope of light around me. I was
picked np Insensible. and those who
first saw me say that smoke issued
from my mouth and nose. All thought
I was dead, but I slowly recovered and
soon seemed to be as well as before the
heavenly visitation.
"The serloiiB effects of the shock,
however, developed In my eyes. Their
largeness and.brilliancy had been often
commanded ,-ph by my friends, but
these more or less desirable features
liad been destroyed by the electric
fluid. The pupils and the irises con
tracted and I found a great difficulty
in my vision. An expert oculist exam
ined the eyes and gave some scientific
name to the difficulty. That's another
story. I only know that I can see and
am glad to be alive.
"One effect remalnB, however, that is
rather curious. Most people who have
been struck by lightning are fearful of
being struck again. Not so with me.
