Spring Finding In Bavaria.
The All genuine Zeitung gives some
interesting particulars of remarkable
success in indicating the presence- of
water-springs on the part of a man
named Jleraz. who seems to bo a recog
nized authority in such matters. Tho
sceno of his performance was in the
Bavarian highlands, at a height of more
than lt:i(K) feet above the level of tho
sea. The commune of Kotheuberg,
near Hirsehhoru, sullered greatly from
want of water, and invited Bcraz last
autumn to endeavor to lind some source
of supply for them. He inspected the
locality one afternoon in presence of
tho public authorities and a reporter oi
tho Allgemeine Zeitung, and announced
that water was to bo found in certain
spots fit depths which ho stated. The
lirst spot was in the lower village, and
ho gave the likely depth at between J2
ana 72 feet, adding that the volume of
water which tho spring would give
would be of about the diameter oi an
inch and a nuarter. After incessant la
bor for four weeks, consisting mainly
of rock blasting, the workmen camu
on a copious spring of water at a depth
of almost 67 feet. What he declared
about a water source for the upper vil
lage was very singular. He pointed to
a spot where he said three watercourses
lay perpendicularly under one another
and running in parallel courses. The
first would be found at a Ueptn or ue
tweeu 22 and -'(J feet, of about the size
of a wheateu straw, and running in the
direction from southeast to northwest.
Tho secoud lay about A2 feet deep, was
of about the size of thick quill, and ran
in the same direction. Tho third, ho
said, lav at a depth of about , feet
running in the same direction, and as
large as a man's little linger. The
actual results were as follows: Tho
lirst watercourse was struck at a depth
of 27 feet, running in the direction in
dicated, and having a diameter of one
lifth of an inch. The workmen came
on the secoud at a depth of 42 jf feet; it
had a diameter of seveu-tweiity-lifths
of an iuch. The third was found at
C2J feet below the surface, ami having
a diameter of thrce-tinns ot an lm-li
all three ruuuing in the direction Bcraz
had indicated. Unfortunately, no hint
is given of his method of procedure,
What an Kljrhty-ton Gun Costs.
In the House of Commons Mr. Brand
snid: "One of the ruus of her Majesty's
ship Inflexible is unserviceable in its
present condition, but it is repairable.
It is a muzzle-loader. It has a steel
tube, with outer coils of wrought-iron.
It has an enlarged powder-chamber. It
was manufactured at the lioy.il (Juu
Factories. It cost 10,073. It was
first tired after beiug mounted in posi
tion on board ship, I believe in 18S0. It
lias tired eighty-six rounds up to date.
It is proposed to replace this gun by the
reserve (on loan to Shoeburyuess for ai
experiment against armor-plates). The
rippvi! mm is of the same desiiru.
There are six of these guns in use four
in the Inflexible, two in Dover turret
and beyond this there are two reserve
guns. To reliue the damaged gnu will
not cost more than 400." London
There is an etiquette in autograph
seeking which the senders of those let
ters nearly all comply with. If stamped
and addressed envelopes and a card are
inclosed, it is a rule that the request
shall be heeded from patriotic mo
tives, because it gives the government 2
cents postage. If one is obliged to go
to the trouble of writing both auto
graph and address, to furnish both en
velope, card, ami stamp, it is not cus
tomary to respond. It was formerly
customary for such requests to be ac
companied merely by an inclosure of
loose stamps. A poet of my acquaint
ance once told mo that his autograph
requests supplied him with stamps for
all his correspondence. Autograph
seekers probably found that loose
stamps were appropriated without com
punction, for they have changed the
custom. I do not receive a great many
such requests now. They come in great
numbers after making an important
speech. Poets' autographs. I am told,
are sought more thau those of public
men. senator E'vurls to Philadelphia
Head Gear for the Soudan.
At the Japanese Village, London,
there is now beiug made, by order of
the Government, an ingenious contriv
ance which will effectually protect the
soldiers in the Soudan from the rays of
tho burning sun and reuder an attack
of sutistroke almost impossible. It is
formed of light bamboo aud paper, and
may thus bo described: On each shoul
der is fixed a piece of bamboo, bent in
the shape of an arch; in the centre of
each arch a piece of bamboo, somewhat
resembling an umbrella stick, eighteen
inches in height, is securely fixed, and
these sticks support a light awniug two
feet in length by eighteen inches in
breadth; the frame of the awning is
composed of bamboo and the covering
of paper paiuted green inside. The
weight will scarcely be felt, and the
wearer will enjoy all tho comforts of a
large umbrella, without experiencing
the inconvenience of holding it up, aud
his hands will be left entirely, free to
carry his rifle or any other article.
Jay Gould's Opinion of Cuba.
Jay Gould, in speaking of his recent
trip to Cuba, said that the islaud has
the climate ami soil for enormous pro
ductiveness in ways which are impossi
ble to any portion of the United States.
Only the rim of Cuba has been touched,
practically, by tho disadvantaged nnd
not very enterprising planters. Inland
lies a region, a hundred miles long by
thirty or so broad, that can't be beaten
on the face of the earth for fertility,
and it is a wilderness. A railroad ex
tends from Havana to Matanza on the
coast, and thence southeastward, alto
gether less than a hundred miles, strik
ing a railroad that crosses the island in
a straight line from Sagua. on the north
coast shore, to Cienfnegos on the south.
That is all there Is of railroads in Cuba.
VThat the country wants is a railroad
from one end of the island to the other,
to carry the produce to markets. It is
thnntrht in Nw York that Mr. Gould
intends interesting himself in railroad
building in Cuba. A'ew York TcUgrawt

In some localities it is not yet too late to
plant mulons. The spring has boon so coli
and wet that they are late everywhere.
There are.seauons, too, which seem to be so
late that tho farmer is blue beyond measure.
Be thinks he sees starvation before him.
Yet, when the season docs open, our Ameri
can mn streams down with all penetrating
warmth, aud forces vegetation from seitl
to maturity apparently in a few weeks.
Thus things are evened up, and late seasons
occasionally turn out remarkably fruitful.
Let ui hot it will be so this year.
To raise melons most successf ully In the
family garden it is best to sprout the seeds
in a hot-bed or cold frame early in the
wanon, say two to three weeks before the
danger from frost is over. Cut sods about
three by four inches in sise, turn them
wrong side up. lay them upon the soil in the
ho-bed, drop three to four seeds upon each,
and cover by sprinkling soil over them.
They will sprout and grow, and havo their
second leaves by tho time it is safe to plant
them in tho open ground.
A light sandy soil should be chosen for
melons. When the time comes for setting
out, lift the sods containing the plants care
fully, and put tham in the places desired.
The hills for inuakniolous should bo set
about three feet apart. The cut shows
two popular varieties of uiuskuielou,
MONTREAL. KITTED GEM.
The cuts are reproduced, by permission,
from Peter Henderson's catalogue. He savs
of tho Montreal market melon, the one on
the left: "The fruit is of the largest size,
s)oeiinens often weighing twenty pounds and
upward. The shape of this melon is almost
round, flattened at both ends, aud deeply
ribbed, skin green and netted, flesh very
thick and of finest flavor."
On the right is a very small melon, the
Netted Gem. It is a globe, weighing no
more than a pound and a half, and of the
finest, sw eetest flavor. The flesh is a pale
green and very tender. The Gem is highly
productive. It is so Ann in texture that it
will keep nearly a week after it has been
picked. This makes it one of the best kinds
Aside from the question of profit in dol-lai-s
and cents, however, every farmer's
table should be plentifully provided with
both musk and watermelons. For break
fast iu the hot summer mornings, it is the
custom iu cities to eat first of all a slice or
two of muskmelon. It is cooling and toning
to the stomach and starts it geutly to work
after its long fast of the bight Honor
bright, is not beginning with this juicy and
aiheti(! dish an improvement on "piliug in"
fried pork and greasy potatoes? In this case
it would be a very good thing for farm peo
ple to follow city fashions. Therefore have
a melon patch; doand tend it, and eat of
tho fmits thereof.
QJw-ect pests are a great drawback to melon
raising. Shields and screens have been
recommended till the plants have grown
strong. But pyrethrum, or Persian insect
powder, is a valuable remedy. It is the
Persian camomile, and comes in a fine yel
low powder, which costs from 85 cents a
pound up, according to where it is bought.
It is deadly to small insect life, and not
hurtful to anything else. Dusted over furs
and woolens, it keeps moths out effectually.
It keeps bugs out of beds, and vermin from
destroying plants. A small bellows can be
purchased by which thia valuable powder
can be blown and sprinkled Wherever it is
Another excellent muskmelon is the Green
Citron. The Ispahan is flrst-olass for the
southern states. Ward's Nectar is highly
esteemed for the family garden.
SCALY BARK WATERMELON.
The illustration shows a field view of a
new watermelon that is meeting with extra
ordinary favor. The flesh is light crimson
and very tender. The average weight of
this melon is thirty-five pounds. It is an ex
cellent variety for marketing. Other stan
durd varieties of watermelon are the Moun
tain Sprout and the Ice Cream. The Ice
Cream is a white-fleshed kind, rich and
sweet, one of the best for planting in the
northern states of the Uatou. Plant water
melon seeds in large hills, eight feet apart
each way. 1 hey will only thrive well on
light, sandy soils.
The Granger and the Kallroada.
A(e of Steel.
A contemporary wants to know, on behalf
of the railroads, whether we are to have
"any more granger legislation." For our
part, we prefer a littlo more granger and a
little less monopoly legislation.
That bugaboo of the railroads, the granger,
is neither the fool nor the madman be has so
often been represented, to be. His Ideas
about railroads may b a tittle crude, and
under some circumstance mischievous,
but as a rule they are more nearly in
accord with right and strict business
honesty than those of such men as
Gould, Huntington, and a score of other no
torious people. For instance ', the granger
co aid never bring himself to believe that in
selling a bushel of corn be Is entitled to sell
four bushels. But a? railroad or telegraph
company of the modern type has no hesi
tancy in asking the public to pay dividends
on a capital four times in excess of the in
vestment in plant. ; Of course the granger
doetnt know much about such things, but
despite his ignorance he is able to grasp the
idna that it is not a fair dealing.
To illustrate in a single instance how the
public are made to suffer by the rapacity of
large corporations, we need only refer to
the ease of the Western Union Telegraph
cxMBipaay. Here is a corporation capital
.nd at $80,000,000, or four times what tt
ought to be capitalised at For the qaar
ler ending December SI it will pay a divi
dend of 1 per cent, and add 1146,000 to lta

On the whole we do not think it likely that
thoso journals frieudly to the railroads will
make much out of their war on the granger.
Ths granger has too many friends among
tho manufacturers, merchants and shippers
in the large cities, who in common with
himself are plagued with 4Ugh transporta
tion rates. Aud while no particular clait or
interest is likely to turn against the rail
roads, hard times and high and unyielding
freight rates are liable to stimulate unfriendly
legislative interest, especially iu tho north
Enrich the Meadows.
Live Stock Journal.
These are sometimes worn threadbare
before we change them. Moreover, we do
not care to spare the time necessary for the
new seeding, where plowing is necessary in
order to bring the laud again into grazing
condition. But, after all, it is hardly ever
necessary to destroy the old turf in order to
rejuvenate an old meadow, A practice is
followed by many, and highly commended
by Youatt, of fertilizing aud reseediug
without breaking up the soil. This
is done by spreading first upon the meadow
such manures as can be best procured barn
yard or bone then following over this with
a rolling cutter. Tho incisions of the cutter
will carry down to the roots of the grass
much of the manure, aud supply immediate
nourishment. Then, if the desired seeds are
sown, the rains which follow will wah them
into the loosened turf, together with the
liquid strength, of tho manures. Bv this
process the old sward is reinvigorated and
lootened up from its mossbound condition,
besides insuring to the seeding immediate
growth. Half the seeds that are usually cost
upon tho unbroken or uncut sod are wasted
fur want of an opportunity to germinate,
and unless they can be furnished acivss to
the soil itself they can not be expected xto
aid the meadow very materially. This work
of fertilizing and reseediug inuft be doue
before the grass from the oid turf has got
much of a start.
A tirat closss manure for grass lauds is
such as is obtained from crushed bones or
phosphates of any kind. How often havo we
noticed how richly and luxuriantly the grass
springs up about an old bone or carcass that
has lain, partly decayed, all winter upon the
sod? From this we get an idea of what the
pasture might be made if properly fertilized
and tended, and to neglect the culture of tho
grass lands is, on the part of the stockman,
as damaging as it is for the viue-dres.ser to
neglect his vines, or the gardener bis plant

tabor In the South.
A southern farmer says that hand labor,
instead of that by machinery, is a great
detriment in tho former slave states. There
is an ingrained belief that it is cheajwr than
any other, whereas the truth is that it is the
most costly. 'He declares cotton should be
cultivated broadcast with the harrow, aud
recommends the Acme for this purpose. The
substitution of agricultural machines aud
animal lalor for handwork would reform
the whole system of agriculture in the south.
The general use of two-horse plows for
breaking and two-horse cultivators and
other double implements for all other work,
except last plowing, would discharge in
South Carolina to-duy (iO.OOO able-bodied la

At the third annual meeting of tho Western
Kansas Stock Growers' association, held re
cently at Garden City, it was practically de
cided that western Kansus was no longer a
free country to those engaged in the cattle
industry. The following resolutions were
read and adopted:
Resolved. That though we have a kindly
feeling to all new oomera, we deem it but just
to say that there is room for no more cattle
upon the ranges occupied by the members of
the association, except such cattle as the
occupauts of each range may choose to intro
duce. Itesolved, That considering the crowded
condition of our ranges, parties taking up
dry claims on lakes dry most of the year will
be considered as intruders, aud treated as
such, as heretofore resolved.
Don'jt Get Panicky on Sheep.
IRural New Yorker.)
There is a great danger that with low
prices for wool and great depression in the
mutton markets there will be "panic"
among farmers to sell their sheep and go in
to some other business. Our advice is, don't
do it. By i ho time you have got well starte I,
wool will bring a good price, and mutton be
in good demand, and you will wish you were
stocked with sheep again. The best course
is to keep steadily on; weed out of your flock
all tho culls; seek to improve it both in the
quality and quantity of wool produced, aud
in the shape of body an.l tendency to muke
mutton. A flock of sheep does much toward
keeping the farm free from noxious weeds,
and toward making tho land richer. It is
safe to think twice before sacrificing the
Small Farm Crops.
The most intelligent writers and agricul
turists iu the south are cesehw.sly urging
planters there to raise less cotton and more
stock, and hay, oats, fruits aud general farm
and garden products. They declare the old
system baa passed away, never to return,
and if the agricultural south would be pros
rou and independent it must recognize
the new order of things. This advice Is
quite as sound for the north aa for the south.
Stock fed on the farm enriches the land
constantly. A recent writer tells us how
an old mare jaaid off the mortgage on a farm.
It was done largely by the sale of colts. The

where the grain farmer fails in the older
states. Many agriculturists, too, have no
