A good supply of fall and winter
cabbage comes in so well on a farm'
and is so easily kept for use during the
winter that there is no good reason why
a large supply should not be raised on
pvory farm. The requisite is good seed.
There are so many varieties that It
would be hard to tell whioh is best.
Cabbage, to do well, require a nice,
deep, loamy soil, easily worked, and
should, to have the best results, be well
manured. Cabbage will hoad on good
rich land what we would call good

Management of Sheep In Summer.
An important point is certainly
gained w hen the stock-master has pro
vided well drained and nntritiouH'grass
ranges for his flocks. Hut there are
other considerations to claim attention.
The proper stocking of pastures is a
matter to be looked after. The ex
tremes of overstocking and understock
ing must be avoided for best results.
Overstocking, tho more freiiuent error.
causes a scarcity of pasture and a ile-
ncient supply ol nutriment. .Ihe sheep
also take up sand and eartli into their
stomachs with their food, and this causes
disease. Uu the other hand, when the
pasture is not close-cropped, the herb
age become i hard and more or less in
digestible, so that sheen do not thrive
upon it. There is an old adage, fami
liar to many shepherds, that "twentv-
four hours' pasture is best for sheep and
eight (lays grass for an ox." In a
word, tho close bite of sheep should be
furnished with close herbage, the ten-
tier growth of thick, short pasturage.
Pastures not closely cropped ought to
be either mowed or pastured down by
arue oetore tne slieep arc turned on it.
It pays, as a rule, to divide the flocks,
pasturing tliu younger and less vigor
ous animals togetlier; in a word, sort
ing lambs nd yearlings from mother
and older ewes, and giving the former
ine nest pa -mirage.
When the range is limited or the' past
ure is not ample, additional food should.

Care must also bo exercised when extra
food is supplied to proportion it to the
real need ot tne slieep. An over supply

pecially when there is overfeed one day,
and little or nothing next day. For
venness in the fleece, sheep must be fed
regularly that is to say, they must from

a due amount of nourishment daily.
There is no question but that irregular
feeding not only atlects the health and

growth and weight of fleece and weak

North American Languages.
North America, 1t is aptly remarked,'
presents a magnificent field for tho
stndytif VHg ami barbario philoso
phies from tiiis fresh standpoint. For
merly attention was paid almost ex
clusively to the more advanced peoples
Aryans, Semites, llamites, Chinese.
Now it is felt that tho complex mytho
lorie, religious, linguistic systems of
theso peoples are the outcome of ear
lier and simpler phases of thought,
consequently that the study of barbar
ous and savage communities can no
longer be neglected. Hut in North
America alone we havo our seventy
five ethnical groups speaking seventy
live slock languages and more than .100
well-marked dialects, each linguistic
stock with a philosophy of its own, or
rather as many philosophic- systems as
it has distinct languages nmt dialects.
To account for this astounding diver
sity of speech Major Powell holds with
one or two distinguished European
philologists that the fundamental lan
guages must, have been evolved in in
dependent centers, than iu fact "man
kind was widely scattered over the
earth anterior to the development of
articula'e speech, and that the langu
ages of which we are cognizant sprung
from innumerable centers as each little
tribe developed its own language."
Ho fails to see that this view, in itself
t'l the last degree improbable, is wholly
unnecessary and even inadequate to ex
plain the a ;tual conditions. It is un
necessary because the present diversity
of speech may be sufficiently accounted
for by its vast antiquity and extremely
evanescent character. Time, acting in
combination with the phonetic growth
and decay inherent in all speech, must
inevitably effect an indefinite amount
of spocilic change, even supposing that
all languages started from a single
center. No evolutionist can deny this,
for he admits that time, combined with
a tendency to modification iu altered
environments, has brought about an in
definite amount of spocilic and generic
change in the biological world. Hut
miimals and vegetables are certainly
more persistent, rrrtcri.i p trilm.i, than
linguistic types. Ergo. The theory is
moreover inadequate to explain tho
actual conditions in America alone.
Hero wo have doubtless a vast number
of specifically distinct languages; but
the mechanism of all is very much
alike; all aro east, as it were, in tho
fame mould; all belong to tho postsyn
thetic or at least to the agglutinating
order. Hut if speech had in America
been evolved in many different centers.
It may be asked how this striking uni
formity is to be explained. Why have
wo not here, as elsewhere, representa
tives of the isolating and inflecting, as
well as of tho polvs'ynthetie order of
spuech? Does not their common struct
ure. point at a common center of dis
persion, while their specilic diversity
within this common groove is amply
explained by time and evanescence ?
Reptiles in Disguise.
Everybody is fond of birds, but it is
possible that some peoplo might like
them less if they believed them to be
only reptiles in disguise. Now, Sir
John Lubbock, addressing .tho Hritish
Association in 181, said: "It seems to
be generally admitted that birds have
come down to us through tho Dinosau
rians (Wonder-lizards); and, as Huxley
has shown, the profound break once
supposed to exist between birds and
reptiles has been bridged over by the
discovery of reptilian birds and bird
like reptiles so that, in fact, birds are
modified reptiles." Popular likes and
dislikes are no disproof of relationship.
Hirds with teeth and reptiles with
feathers have been cited in evidence,
although, indeed, they are very like
"Cuckoo, cuckoo, welcome bird, sel
dom seen, but often heard" of. Birila
and reptiles are alike reproduced from
eggs; their blood corpuscles are equally
oval, ami not round, as in mammal ani
mals. - Hoth, apparently, swallow their
food without lasting it. Possibly the
stomach may be, with them, the seat of
taste, as it often is with us when we
have taken physio or eaten stnle fish or
too much sage and onion stutling with
duck. Hoth are musical. Serpents are
fond of melody, though they cannot
make it. Hatraehiaus as well as bipeds
have theirgraiid united choral societies.
American bullfrog concerts are cele
brated as well as numerously attended.
The song of thrushes and tho wailing
of nightingales may, therefore, be only
developments of the green European
tree-frog's resonant croak, effected, as
with birds, by inflated expansions of
the throat,,, very curious to witness.

An Aqueous Explosion.
: On Tuesday last an eight-foot Pelton
water-wheel was started at the Idaho
mine to drive the pumps. The wheel
was found to work admirably, and ev
ery thing went along smoothly until lOiliO
o'clock .Saturday night, when suddenly
the wheel burst into fragments thu
pieces flying in different directions, but,
fortunately doing no other damage than
tearing away wood-work and making
holes through the sides and roof of the'
hoisting-works. Ono piece pursued ii
very erratic course, going . outside
the building and returning, fell
within eighteen inches of one of the
workmen u ho stood near the top of the
shaft. The engineer iu charge had
been to the wheel a few minutes before
tho accident to oil its journals, and had
not much more than returned to his
station when the fearfully sweeping
crash came. The wheel was making
2I0 revolutions per minute, being driven
by sixty inches of water under 51(1 (net
pressure, and of course when the break
came the pieces flew a if shot out of a
cannon, and as the wheel was a com

The Doctor's Pill and a Grizzly Bear.
We buckled on our cartridge belts,
took up our guns, and started off. I
noticed, at tho time, that the Doctor
placed a small case in his In-east pocket.
Hcing somewhat curious to know w hat
the case continued, I inquired of him
what it was. He handed it to me and
on the out-sidn I read:
Dorni.r. Action t.irK 1'iitHKnvisn Pirxs.
t-iililicr Mt, Ml grains.
We soon oaugl sight of tho largest
grizzly it has been my fortune to see.
His left side was tons. I saw the Doctor
turn pale with excitement. Whispering
to him to stiffen his left ear, I rested my
rifle on that prominent part of his per
son, and, taking dead aim for tho bear's
breast, fired. At the report of tho gun,
the Doctor, stunned by tho explosion, 1
suppose, fell as though he had been
shot. Not so with the bear, however,
for starting up with a snort, he looked
around. 1 fired again, but shot wild,
nnd then saw the bear start for us, with
hair on end and growling fearfully.
Shall I confess it that fear took posses
sion of me, even so that I dropped my
gun and ran?
Yes. I fled ingloriously nnd left my
poor helpless comrade to ids fate. Some
lifty yards below where I had fired there
was a scrubby oak tree, some twelve
feet high, and for this tree I ran as fast
as my legs would carry me, and swung
myself into its branches none too soon.
Tiie bear clutched at my feet as I drew
up. I climbed to the "top, and looked
tremblingly down. The bear seized the
tree in his grasp nnd endeavored to tear
it up by the roots; but it wns rooted in
the rocks, and was too much for even
his giant strength.
I breathed more freely. I knew ho
could not climb the tree. On looking
at him closely I could see. the hole iu
his left side 'where the bullet hail en
tered, and on the other side whine it
had passed out. It must havwetorn his
lienrt to pieces. The blood was flowing
from the wound, and the bloody froth
was on his lips. Surely he must soon
die, I thought. But he showed no sign
of failing vitality, and I soon eiiino to
believe that a bear may live without a
heart. I saw plainly now that I should
haye shot him through the head or else
through the spine. Hut it was too late
to rectify the mistake; my gun was on
The bear would not leave the tree,
but kept looking up at me. After
awhile he took a large boulder in his
paws, and laid it at the root of the tree,
and then another and another. At first
I was puzzled to know what it meant,
but soon tho terrible truth dawned on
my mind that he was heaping them
there that he might stand on them and
reach me. The thought was enough to
make me start, and for a moment I
thought of leaping over him to the
ground and taking my chances in run
ning.. Hut I knew he would overtake
nie. Then I thought of the Doctor,
and turned my eyes toward the place
whero he had "fallen. He was not there.
I shouted his name, and saw him thrust
his head out from crevice in tho rocks
close by where 1 had left him. How lie
managed to squeeze his body into so
small nspaco is a mystery to mo.
"Get your gun and shoot the bear," I
screamed to him. "Are you going to
stand still and see this brute eat ran?"
He did not answer, but crept out
cautiously to whero his rifle lay, and
ran quickly back to his retreat. I saw
him aim, and then saw the flash of the
fun and one of my boot-heels flew oil',
implored him to aim with more care
next time, and to shoot at tho bear, not
at me. 1 waited with much trepidation
his next shot, and well I might, for the
bullet sung a dirge by my ear, b ming
it as it passed. Then I asked luni to
desist, for fear that he might commit
murder and that I would bo the victim.
Slowly but surely the bear was piling
up the rocks at tho base of the tree, and
must soon reach mo. For a while hope
deserted me and I sat in a kind of stupor,
from which I was aroused by a thought
that flashed across my mind. Acting
upon it I shouted to the Doctor. "Draw
tho bullet from a cartridge, quickly,
and replace with one of your pills! Load
your gun with it."
"AH right," ciimo the response. .
"Now run out," I sai l, "and attract
the attention of the bear. '
Iu auother moment he came out yell
ing nnd capering about. This was inoro
than tho bear could resist, and he rushed
for thu Doctor, who lied to his retreat,
followed by tho bear.
" When he opens his mouth tire
-straight down his throat," I yelled.
I heard a shot, saw the bear stagger
back, then rear up and place his paws
on his abdomen, howling all tho while

Scientifically Accounted for. and Some
Remote Causes that Produce Painful
The following synopsis of a lecture de
livered by Dr. Horace R. Hamilton before
the Now York Society fur the Promotion of
Science contains so much that Is timely
and important tha1; it can be read with
both interest tnd roll :
There is pr jubly no subject of modern
times thrt ' uas caused and is causing
greater utte n ion than the origin of torna
does. ta itists havo studied it for the
benefit of humanity; men have inv sti
gated if lor the weliare of their f. m .ies.
It has been a vexed subject long o isid
ered, and thcough all this investigate .) the
cyclone has swept across the lund c; rrying
destruction to scientists us well as to lha
innneent dwellers in its track. One thing,
however, is eel tain: tho cause of tho cy
clone must bo sought fur awav from the
whirling body of wind itself. Its results
are powerful ; its cause must also be pow
erful. Let us therefore consider a few
farts. First, the appearance of a cyclone
is invariably preceded by dark spots upon
the face of the sun. These spots, indicating
a disturbed condition of the solur regions,
necessarily affect the atmosphere of our
earth. An unusual generation of heat in
one part of the atmosphere is certain to
cause u partial vuciium iu another portion.
Air must rush in to till this vacuum.
Hence the disturbances hence the cvelone.
This theory finds additional confirmation
in the fact that tornadoes come during the
day and not at night. Thedark spots upon
the surface of the sun, whutover they may
be, seem to cause great coin mot ion in the
atmosphere of the world, and It is almost
certain that tho extremely wet weather of
the present season can be accounted for
on precisely this basis. Is it reasonable
to suppose that the marvelous effect of the
sun on vegetation and life in general shall
be loss than upon the atmosphere itself
through which its rays come? The causa
is remote, but the cfluct is here.
After (leseril)in somo of the terrible ef
fects of tho cyclone, the speaker went ou
to say :
This rule finds its application in nearly

subject, 1 do not hesitute to say that this
cuusu is to Iw fouud in some derangemeut
of the kidneys or liver far away from
that portion of the body in which thegt ef
fects appear. p,ut oiie may say, 1 have
no pain whatever in my kidneys or liver.
Very true. Neither have we any evidence
that there is a toruadn on tho surface of
the sun; but it is none thelesa certain that
the tornado is here, and it in Hone the lesi
certain that these great organs of the body
are the cause of tho trouble although tum e
nay be no jiain iu their vicinity.
t knf w whereof I speak, for lbae psosil
tliromh this very etperience myself.
Nearly km years ago, I wns the picture of
)ionlth, weighing more than '.,0 1 pounds,
end as strong and healthy as any man I
ever knew. When I felt the svinptoms I
have above deserilied, they caused ine en
lioyance, not only bv reoson of their ag
gravating nature, tint because I bnd never
felt any pain liefore. Other doctors told
me I was troubled with malaria, and I
treated myself accordingly. I did not be
lieve, however, that malaria could show
such nggravuted symptoms. It never oc
curred to me that analysis would help
live the trouble, as I did not presume my
difficulty wns located in that portion of tho
body, ltut I continued to prow worse. I
bad a faint sensation at the pit of my
stomach nearly every day. 1 felt a great
desire to eat, and yet I loathed food. 1 was
constantly tired and still I could not sleep.
My brain was unusually nctive, but I could
not think connectedly. My existence was
a living misery. 1 continued in this eon
ditlon lor nearly a year; never free from
pain, never for a moment happy. ' Such an
existence is far worse than deuth, forwhich
1 ronfess I earnest lv longed. j
It was while suflei ing thus that a friend
advised me to make a final attempt, to re
cover my heul'h. I sneered inwardly at 1
bis suggestion, tint I was too week to make i
any resistance. He furnish' d me with a
remedy, simple yet pul:itabi and w ithin I
two days I observed a slii.-ht el nnge tor
the better. This awakened inv courage. I !
felt that I would not I'ie at that time. I I
continued the use of the remedy, taking it
in accordance with direct ions, uni il I b.--rame
rot only res'ored to my former
hcalt"i nnd si ren :th, tut of greater vigor
than 1 have before known. Tills con-

avoided wei c the ki Ineys und liver kept in
perfect condition. Were it possible to con-
trol t'ne ac ion of the sun, cyclones could
undoubtedly be averted. That, however,
is one of tho things thai can not tie. But
I rejoice to say thut it is possible to control
the kidneys and liver; to render their ae-
tion wholly normal and their effect upon
the system that of purifiers rather than
poisoners. 1 hat this end has heen accom
plished largely by means of the remedy I
