HOUSEHOLD AND FARM.
To Stop Nohe.Bi.ekd.-TLo Seir.ttifte
American gives tlio following novel plan: TLe
best remedy for bleedinp 8t the nose, us j. iven
by Dr. G lesson in one of bis lectures, is it the
vigorous motion of the jaws as if In the cl or
chewing- In io case of a child a wad f a
per should be placed in its mouth, acU tnc
child should be instructed to chew it hard. It
is the motion of the Jaws tuai stops uic
of blood. The remedy is so very simple that
many will teel inclined to laugh at it, but it
never lias been known to lail in a single in
stance, even in very severe cases.
Trofessor Blount, of the Colorado A(?ricul
tural College, averts that "a single gram or
wheat cannot carry out its habit and develop
according to its nature on less than sixteen
square inches, and that every pound or seed
w heat should be made to produce its bushel
all over the world." For this reason he avers
that sowing much wheat "to get a good stand"
is the worst kind of economy, as the tanner
loses bis seed, aud never in any instance can
make as large a yiold as by thin sowing. It
should be understood, however, that thin seed
ing requires thorough preparation of the soil.
Tlie Wool of Irelnuit .
The most important export of Iceland, next
to codfish, is wool. Considering the amount
of wool required to keep a sheep warm up
here, says a writer, this is more of a tempera
ture index than a sheep census. Iu Iceland
the sheep are never shorn ; the wool gets ripe
and is pulled oil" quite easily without causing
the animal any pain. It may, in truth, be said
that wool grows in Iceland. The annual ex
port amounts to 1,1500,000 pounds, and, though
when it conies off the animal, it is the dirtiest
wool in the world, it goes to murket the clean
est. Near Heykjarik there are a number of
boiling springs, where all the household wash
ing of the town is done. To this spring all the
plucked wool is brought and washed in the
steaming spring, then taken out and dried on
the grass la the sun.
A nrr.itipl i?!irdener makes the following
important statement : "Last year as a test of a
frequert practice among growers ot melons
and squashes, 1 pinched the ends of the long
mum Kimuts of the melons, squashes and cu
cumbers, and left some run at their own will
One SQUash plant sent out a single stem reach
ing more than forty feet, but did not bear any
fruit. Another plant was pinched until it
formed a compact mass of intermingling side
shoots and main branches eight feet square,
aud it bore sixteen squashes. The present year
a musk-melon plant thus pim-hed in covers
the spare allotted ( it, ii'id it liu m ut twenty
three epecinirns of fruit, the mosi of whirh
Lave been pinched off. The psnchinir causes
many lateral branches, which !a'ter pro.
duce the female or fertile blossoms, while
the main vines produce only the male blos
soms. The difference in favor of the yield of
an acre of melons treated by this pinching
process may easily amount to 100 barrels."
A Trap lor STieep-lillliiiK 1oe.
The Lynchburg Virginian- describes an in
genious trap devised by a Virginia farmer to
capture sheep killing dogs. Having suffered
severely from the depredations of dogs upon
bis sheep-fold, he built around a number of
sheep that the dogs had killed an inclosure
ot rails about twelve feet high and about ten
feet square at the ground, the sides of the trap
sloping in until an opening was left about five
feet square. Any dog could easily climb such
a blopinc fence and enter the pen, but not even
a greyhound could jump out of it. Iu three
nights the fanner captured forty-six dogs, in
cludinir fifteen or twenty that had never been
seen befoie in that neighborhood. This, after
there bad been a public slaughter of all dogs
Buspccted of sheep-killing, save one, whose
master could not be convinced of his guilt.
The trap was built for his especial benefit and
it caught htm the first niglit.
Why wouldn't the same trap catch wolves?
The Cabbage I'eat.
The imported cabbage worm has come to
stay. His first summer on Long Island
Bbowed that he was capable of advancing the
price of cabbnge $300,000 worth wasdetroyed
in the suburbs of New York, lie has follow
ed the tide of civilization and gone west. The
problem now is, what will kill the worm ami
not injure the cabbage? We would suggest
that delivcrence must come by pi eventing the
moth from laying the eggs on the cabbage.
Wo Lave suggested to our neighbors to try ty
ing newspapers or sacking of any kiJd over
the cabbage plant during the prevalence of
the moth: when it disappears the covering is
to be removed. Few ot all the remedies so far
named have given satisfaction. Prof. C. V.
Hiley, always practical and intelligent, sug
gests the use of pyrethrum. He first tried it
in 1870, but did not recommend it that year,
as be wished to test it further. He has made
tests and caused tests to be made by agents,
and general experience has been most favora
ble. lie unhesitatingly recommends pyrethrum
for all the different worms which infest cab
bage plants. Prof. A. J. Cook, of Lansing,
Mich., says he tried bi sulphide ot carbon as a
weapon acainst these pests. It has been suc
cessfully employed in fighting the phylloxera
in France, wlnefi suggested us use nere. lie
made a sum hole close to the plant, three or
four inches deep, and turned into it about a
balf a tcasnoonful of the liquid, then quickly
filled the hole w ith earth and packed it by
steppini: on it. The same experiment was
tried for the squash borer and with gratifying
success, lie thinks the ut-stupiude oi carnon
would prove effective in tiching the peach-tree
borer and the radish and onion maggots.

A I'ie-Pliint Leaf ait ltlg an a Tbl.
About three weeks ago tie local of the L'n
ion gave a notice of a mammoth pie plant that
is now growing on the premises of J. W. Ilug
Pins. in Sherman'a addition. We stated at
the time that the lanrest leaf of this plant
grown from seed put in the ground on the
20th of last April, measured seventeen feet in
circumference. Our contemporaries criticised
us as though we were the lineal descendent of
the celebrated liaron Munchausen, ana nao
inherited all the leadine trails of our noted
ancestor. This treatment, of course, has been
as a thorn in our flesh ever since. We vowed
we would get even. We are no ready to vin
dicate our honor as a truthful journalist. Yes
tcriiay we measure' that leaf in the presence
of two witnesses Mr. Ilucrins and Ir. Port.
Its circumlerence was twenty-cue feet and nine
inches. There is no "sbenuniijan" afoui mis
The plant is somewhat the shape of a palm-
Ieartan, witu a smooth edge, ana noi mil oi
deep scallops, as has been surmised by those
who bad not seen it.
Mr. Ilnggms, who was formerly an lowa
farmer of the old school, has many other "big
things" growing alongside this pie plant We
saw a beet of six weeks' grow th that meas
ured three feet one and a half inches in cir
cumference, and a turnip of the same age one
foot eleven and a hair inches in circumference,
We also saw a small bush, transplanted last
spring, that bore a quince which measured
eleven and a half inches in circumference; a
fig cutting, planted about the same time, is
bearing fruit. Besides these there were squash
es, watermelons, muskmclons, tomatoes and
flowers, ail growing in tropical luxuriance.
The man who wrote a little book entitled
Five Acres Too Much," must nave seen a
duplicate ot Mr. Hoggins' place. The amount
of "truck" on that lot of 100x200 feet is some
thing simply amazing. We have seen "pore"
farmers with a good sized ranch who couldn't
make a good a showing. San Diego Col.)

The Application of FertllUer
Perhaps something more may yet be learned
in regard to the application of fertilizers and
their supposed propensity to waste. Certainly
faats like the following are sugeestivo as well
as instructive: In West Ppriugfleld is a field
of corn of about three acres, that stands re
markably well and has been noticeably vigor
ous all the season. On inquiry, we learned
that on about out- third of this piece fresh sta
ble manure was spread iu mid-winter, wnenu
was drawn. On another third the manure
was piled, and spread at the time of plowing,
as is the usual way. Ou the balance of the
Held a common mixture of fish and potash
was iir-nlied. The proprietor tells us that the
suniTiontv of the first st vie of treatment was
plainly visible all tnrougtt tnc eariy stages oi
its growth, and that thU accords with his pre
vious experience. If that is so, it upsets some
. . "... .
of the theories of the so-called professors ot
agriculture. The idea bns been prevalent that
manures are injured by exposure to air and
frofct, and consequently they are often boused
at considerable inconvenience till the time' of
planting, when they are covered with earth as
quickly as possible. Some plow them i.i, lest
some of their precious qualities should be
evaporated, and others harrow them in,
through fear of leaching. There are those
who fork over their manures several times,
believing that it pays, and othen mingle it
with the soil by frequent plowinirs. 1 he corn
grower above referred to is a man ot cautious
speech and abundant resurces, and nis icsii
monv can bo relied on. Ad opportunity s
here invea to establish a principle that may
be ot value to farmers. Let us "prove all
things and bold fast that which is good."

Ilrutul Murder at Lanoaater, 1'a.
A Chicago Time special ' from Lancaster,
Pa., Oct. 7, gives the datails of a fearful crime
committed in the latter city the night before.
The perpetrators were Philip Itogers and hd-
ward Sanders, aud the victim Mrs. Mary Sey
mour, a widow lady with three small children.
lingers was in the house of Mrs. Seymour,
sleeping on the kitchen tloor, and about 11
o'clock Sauders knocked at the door, and
asked admission, w hich was refused at first,
but he was finally admitted. He then made
attempts to outrage Mrs. Seymour, who
screamed for help, and fought him until ex
hausted, w hen ho accomplished the deed, tue
three children meanwhile cowering w ith Tear
in a remote corner of tlio room. hen Mrs
Seymour finally broke loose trom the brute,
ho caught her again and pounded her on the
head, face and body until nearly dead, i he
woman finally escaped and ran into the street,
calling the neighbors for help. She succeeded
in arousing Mr. Nathaniel Pickle, to whom
she said : "For God's sake, let mo in." San
ders attempted to follow her into the house,
he having pursued her from her own resi
dence. He was, however, refused admission.
Then ho left, saying he would hunt a doctor,
as be had hurt the woman badly. Mrs. Sey
mour at the time was bleeding profusely from
tho mouth, nose and ears, ana was evidently
in a dving condition. When asked what San
ders aud Rogers had done, she said they had
outraged and then beaten her. Sanders egain
came to the house, saying he could not find a
doctor, and that the woman Seymour had
drank two quarts of beer, which was the cause
of her sickness. When told that she was vom
iting bloo.l, and was in a dying condition, he
replied that he had given her an injection at
the other house. While the woman was dying
Sanders stood over her, jeering and taunting
her. The last words uttered by the woman
were: "God have mercy on me aud take care
of uiv children." Warrants for the arrest of
Sanders and Rogers were at once issued. San
ders was found in front of the house where the
woman died. When arrested he said to the
officers: "Here's my wings, put on the irons."
He was lodged in jail. Itogerswas touudcon
cealed at the Pine iron works, where ho w as
lying beside the furnaces with a gang of
trnnins. He was also committed to jail. San
ders, who is the principal in the crime, is about
2r years old, hikI is well known to the ofllcers,
having lieen fnquently anested. Kogers is
about 20 years old, aud ha a bad reputation.
The children Mrs. Seymour will betaken
iu charge by the authorities, as they are left
without protectors.

conductor on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa
Fc railroad, was murdered at his bouse at Las
Lunas bv a party ot drunken Mexican des
peradoes, three of whom were Seljo Spinosa,
Aristote Narauio and Fernando Chavez. They
