I. P. CUfYD, EDITOC. Ardmore, I. T. An eld law, which has been forgot tea. requires 11 ships leaving the port of New York to carry a Bmall cannon, two projectiles and 600 yards of line, so that in caso the ship should be beached the crew would be able to communicate with the shore. All sailing masters hare received no tioe to comply with the law. The growl of the English sporting papers that English fighters sent over here are shabbily treated does not seem well founded. In the first place the fighters have been per mitted to land, a concession for which they should bo grateful, and compar atirely few of them have been mo lested under the vagrancy act The cigarette is to be banished from Georgia if the house of repre sentatives has the power to enforce Its will. A bill forbidding the sale of cigarettes in the state waa passed by that body last week. As intro duced the bill only made it unlawful for any person to sell cigarettes, but the committee on hygiene and sani tation, to which it was referred, em phasized the rigid moral sense of the house by amending it so as to include under the ban cigarette tobacco and cigarette paper. Then the house passed the bill by 101 to 45. It is interesting to note that this same tody has been using every effort to encourage the cultivation of tobacco in the state. That a strict construction of the immigration laws will bo beneficial to the United States is evident from the wrath of the Canadian papers at the extra precautions taken by our officials to prevent the dominion from shipping paupers, criminals and other riffraff over the border. The Canadian good, thrifty soul has been lining bis pockets with the head money exacted from the Chinese and other undesirable Immigrants. The .trade of immigrant smuggling has become so profitable that our friends across the line look upon its sup pression with disgust and indigna tion. They feel that a remunerative Industry is to be ruined, and their newspapers, as a consequence are un usually venomous against this coun try. A toitng man who is not driven to it by hard necessity may not be blamed for not eking out his finan cial mean-) by manual labor while ia college, and it is not pleasant to come down to tho plainest food at school or anywhere else; but the practice of spending money with a free hand, which has in recent times become so general in almost all our colleges, is simply to be deplored. It leads & young man into dangerous habits at the very time when he be gins to act upon his own responsi bility, weakens his regard for thrifty and careful living and too often dulls his sense of honor by leading him into debts which he knows cannot be paid except by distressing those to whom he is under every obligation to consider and regard.

She only walloped twenty-five pupils in on day, and all in rapid succession. Lobengula himself couldn't have beaten this record. The presump tion is that the only reason Miss Nason stopped at twenty-five was be cause there wore no more pupils in her room. The riot all grew out of the fact that the youngsters hadn't properly committed to memory their geography lesson. They wouldn't study geography, so she promoted them by laying them across her lap and making them see stars. She made them study astronomy.

B- Terry in XTwCtical Farmer. I will show you petatoes eared for, or rather not cared for, in about the same way. Yes, I will show yon fields where they are to stripped by bugs and over pen with weeds, and the cultiva tion between the drills so neglected, that you can toarcely see a potato leal And this shall not be on soma shiftless farmer's place, an xeeptional case, but on farms managed by good farmers, in some easel our best farmers. They are pot laxy or shiftless. They under take to do too much, that is all, and something must suffer. I could not take their plaoes and do any better, perhaps not as well. The troublo is not in the men, but in the system they are following. We have had a dry season, which of course, is fav orable for taking care of orops, and doing the haying and harvesting, and still, while they have been se curing hay and grain, corn and pota toes have suffered severely. In some cases they will not pay for the labor Jut on them and tho uso of the land, 'hey will be grown at a loss. Years go I did just this way myself, but seeing It was not business-liko I gradually worked out of it. and undertook to do less and less until there was little enoug-h to do, SO we could usually c'.o about our best and make everything we did, pay. The above named farmers are making a little money, doing pretty well, but they might do better. As little as we undertake to do, we sometimes get caught. One day our wheat was all cut and iry enough to get in; there were Biz acres of potatoes that should have been cultivated at once, tho rest were too large. But it might come on catching weather and the wheat would then bo damaged, and so it must go in the barn. This took three days, and then my son did not feel well, and there was other jobs that must bo done, and thoso potatoes were neglected for some time. It did not rain, but was hot and dry. If we had tended to the potatoes we should have been quite a few dollars ahead, but we were afraid to risk leaving the wheat out. But there is very little loss of this kind on our farm, not that we are any smarter than others, but simply that we do not undertake to do any more things than we are quite sure we can handle. ' Friends, let me urge you to work in this same direction. There is less worry and more profit. I can take you to farms to-day, where the owner has tried to grow corn and potatoes. If he had put out but tha ono crop, and no more acres of it, and put all the labor on it that has been spread over the two, it would show a fino profit and be something to be proud of. Now there is no profit in either crop, and if they are near the road, the farmer withes they were back out of sight, and ho never would in vito any friends to go and see Ihem either. Would that all could throw aside all inherited notions, that were sound once, but behind the times now. and run their farms on sound business principles, as far as circum stances will permit them to do so. Manure In Winter. As it will be an exceptionable case when the land will be so rich that no manure is necessary, all reasonable care should bo taken to secure all that is possible. On the majority of farms winter is by far tho best sea son for making manure; and general ly, there is more time to haul out and properly apply. But in order to secure the best results it is very im portant that the preparation be made in advance. Ono important matter in doing this is to hare feeding places whore the stock can br fed and the manure accumulated in one or more places. A supply of bedding is also essential, so as to absorb and retain the liquid soiling, and at tho same time help to keep the stock clean and comfortable. With all classes of stock it is very important in maintaining tho best health und thrift to do this, at tho same time avoiding using too much, as this adds to tho cost of handling without an increase in value. One of the best ways of applying manure is on plowed land intended for spring crops. By applying on the surface during tho winter, the action of the rain and the melting snow will tend to carry the more val uable portions into the soil, while the necessary preparation of tho soil in the spring, tho cultivating and harrowing that will need to be given to properly fit it for tho feed, will bo sufficient to thoroughly incorporate tho manure into tho soil. One of the best plans of manage ment is to uso what bedding is needed to keep the stock clean, and then as it accumulates both in the stables, sheds or feeding lots, load directly into tho wagon, haul to the field, and scatter where it is needed. This avoids all unnecessary hand ling, and is an item in getting the work done at tho lowest cost. An other thing 6hould a'jo be remem bered, that it pays better in the end to manure thoroughly, than to scat ter over too large a surface. With a little planning of tho work, nearly or quito all of the manure made dur ing the wintor can be hauled out ac 1 appUe upon the land to benefit thai cext season's - crop." and : generally ? will give better results than to applj on nn plowed land and plow under; while there will be much lesa loss of the valuable pastures. In applying the manure, should distribute ' as evenly as possible, gauging the quantity largely by the needs of the soil, remembering that there is little danger of applying too much. Journal of Agriculture. EmlUf. In the Ground. The building of silos prevents many farmers and small dairymen from ensilaging green crops, it is well enough, perhaps, to have a' good, substantial silo, if one can build it just as well as not. and, where lumber is plenty it does not cost very much to build a practical silo. But when the ensilaging of green crops was first begun the silo was simply a hole in the ground, and where the drainage is good that is as good a way as any. My silo is of that kind. I have dug a hole with slanting sides on a little raise of the ground, and I fill this with my corn with whole corn stalks, heaping them up above the ground and cover ing first with straw and then with earth. The plan is similar to that of preserving roots in the pit. My ensilage is always good, as good as anybody's can be. Farmers Voice. Dairy Note. A creamery should not be started until 300 cows are guaranteed. No matter what breed the cow Is, she requires good caro to produce profitable results. It is a good plan to keep a good milking cow in the dairy as long as she is a good milker. The wise dairyman provides soil ing crops to patch out the dry pas tures during the summer time. No calf should be raised for dairy purposes from a cow of weak consti tution or one with organic disease- Tho best dairymen practice the best economy in feeding when they feed all the cow will eat up clean and no more. Bulky food should always be fed with concentrated food, to avoid possible discomfort and injury from the latter. The cream should bo set am soon as possible after milking. It will not separate rapidly when subjected to jarring and shaking. It is poor economy to turn a herd of cows into a largo pasture and al low them to roam about all day, when all they get is exercise. The milk tester and the separator are important factors in dairying. Tho milk tester in the near future will be a sine qua nonln dairying. Cows should bo trained so that they will lot any kind of person milk them, but they do better when the same person milks them each time. Uncleanliness in milking, not cool ing tho milk quickly after milking, bad fodder, bad air in stables and disease in cows are causes of tainted milk. In order to get the fat all out of the butter the churn should not be filled too full. It Is necessary to havo room in the churn to give tho cream concussion. It costs less to feed and care for one cow than it does for two, there fore every farmer who is keeping two cows and getting really but what one should produce is losing money llnuntihold Helps.

L Hunter Tails of HI Cnearlar-'e perteaea ?aved by Havln; Hia Oaa-Tb Tiger's Ce.be Object Lesson. In India once I went out on a hot. dusty plain near the Ganges, with my rifle and one native servant, to see what r could shoot. It was a dis mal place. Here and there were clumps of tall grass and bamboos, with now and then a tamarisk tree. Parrots screamed in the trees, and the startled caw of some Indian crows made me pause and look around to see what had disturbed them. The crows almost at once set tled down again into silence, and. as I saw no signs of danger, I went on carelessly. I was alone for I had sent back my servant to find my match-box, which I had left at the place of my last halt; but I had no apprehensions, for I was near the post, and the district was one from which, as was supposed, the tigers had been cleaned out 6ome years be fore. Just as I was musing upon this fact. with a tinge of regret beoause I had come too late to have a hand in the clearance, I was crushed to the ground by a huge mass which seemed to have been hurled upon me from behind, says a Youth's Companion writer. My head felt as though it had been dashed with icy or scalding water, and then everything turned blaok. If I was stunned by the shock it was only for an instant When I opened my eyes I was lying with my face in the sand. Not knowing where I wsi or what had happened. I started to rise when instantly a huge paw turned me over on my back, and I saw the great yellow green eyes of a tiger looking down upon me through their narrow black slits. I don't know how long I lay there stupidly gazing up into the brute's eyes, but presently I made a move ment to sit up, and then I saw that I still held my rifle in my hand. While I was looking at the Weapon with a vague, harrassing sense that there was something I ought to do with it, the tiger picked me up by the left shoulder and made off with me into a jungle; and still I clung to the rifle, though I had forgotten what use I should put it to. The grip of the tiger's teeth upon my shoulder 1 felt but numbly, and yet as I found after wards, it was so far from gentlo as to have shattered the bone. Having carriod mo perhaps half a mile tho brute dropped me and, rais ing her head, uttered a peculiar soft cry. Two cubs appeared at once in answer to the summons, and bounded up to meet her. At the first glimpse of me, however, they sheered off in alarm, and their dam had to coax them for some minutes, rolling me over softly with her paw or pioking me up and laying me down in front of them, before she could convince them that I was harmless. At last the youngsters suffered themselves to be persuaded. They threw them selves upon me with eager though not very dangerous ferocity, and be gan to maul and worry me. Their claws and teeth seemed to awaken me for the first time to a sense of pain. I threw off the snarling little animals roughly and started to crawl away. The mother lay watching the game with satisfaction. Instinctively I crept toward a tree, and little by little the desire for es cape began to stir in my dazed brain. When I was within a foot or two of the tree the tiger made a great bound, seized mo in her jaws and carried me back to the spot whence I had started "Why." thought I to myself, "this is just exactly the way a cat plays with a mouse!" At the same moment a cloud scemod to roll off my brain. No words of mine can describe the measureless and sicken ing horrors of that moment, whon realization was thus suddenly flashed upon me. At the shock my riflo slipped from my relaxing fingers; but I recovered it desperately, with a sensation as if I had been falling over a precipice. Again the cubs began mauling mo. I repelled them gently, at the same time looking to my riflo. I saw that there was a cartridge ready to be projected into the chamber. I re membered that the magazine was not more than half empty. I started once more to crawl away, with the cubs snarling over me and trying to hold me; and it was at this point I realized that my left shoulder was broken. Having crawled four or five' feet, I let the cubs turn me about, whereupon I crawled back toward the old tiger, who lay blinking and actually purring: It was plain that sho had had a good meal not long before, and was, therefore, in no hurry to dispatch me. Within about three feet of tho beast's striped foreshoulder I stopped and fell over on my side, as if all b-.it exhausted. My rifle barrel rested oa a little tussock. The beast moved her head to watch me. but evidently considered me past all pos sibility of escape, for her eyes rested as much upon her cubs as upon me. The creatures were tearing at my legs, but in this supreme moment I never thought of them. I had now thoroughly regained my self-control. Laboriously, very deliberately. I got my sight and covered a -spot right behind the old tigress tore-shoulder, low down. From the position 1 was in. I knew this would carry tha bul let diagonally upward through the heart I should havo preferred to put a bullet in the brain; but in my disabled condition and awkward pos ture I could not safely try it Just as I was ready, one of tha outs got la the . way and my heart rank. Tha old tiger gave tha eub playful cuff which sent it rolling to ono side. Tho next Instant I pulled tho trigger jny heart stood still. MvwZ '-vnered a hair's j of the rifle was a ,'jerce yell from the s-tthd the long-barred body ..ifhteoed itself up into the air and fell over almost on the top of me. The cubs sheered off in great consternation. I sat up and drew a long breath of thankful relief. The. tiger lay beside me, stone dead. I was too weak to walk at once, so I leaned against the body of my vanquished foe and rested. My shoulder was by this time setting up an anguish that made me think little of my other injuries. Nevertheless,, the scene about me took on a glow of exquisite color. So great was the reaction that the very sunlight seemed transfigured. I knew I fairly smiled as I rapped the cubs on the mouth with my rifle bar rel. I felt no inclination to shoot the youngsters, but I, would have no more of their over-; ardent attentions. The animals soon realized this, and lay down in the sand beyond my reaoh, evidently waiting for their mother to reduce me to proper submission. I must have lain there half an hour, and my elation was rapidly subsiding before the agony in my shoulder, when at last my man, Gunjeet, ap peared, tracking the tiger's traoes with stealthy caution. He had not waited to go for help, but had followed up the beast with out delay, vowing to save me or avenge me before he slept The cubs, on his approach, had run off into the covert, so we set out at once for the post When I got there I was in a raging fever, which, with my wounds, kept mo laid up for three months. On my recovery I found, that Gunjeet had gone the next day and captured the two cubs, which he had sent down the river to Benares, while the skin of the old tiger was spread luxuriously on my lounge. CAS FOR COOKING. Its Use In England It Increasing and Beeoniloa- Wry ProOtable. While electricity is trenching so seriously upon the field of gas light ing any recent application of gas which leads to an extension of its consumption is of importance to gas producers. Some foreign companies seem to have done this quito success fully in at least one direction. At tho recent Dundee meeting of the North British association of gas managers, one member. Mr. J. Ball antyne. of Rothesay, stated that his company had gained an increase of consumption of at least 40 per cent in about six years, due to cooking by gas among its customers. The gas company furnishes the cookers to its patrons at a rental of ten per cent of the list cost price per annum which charge also includes putting them in, taking them away and keeping them in order. About eleven per cent of tho customers are supplied. His and other companies have not only found this a profitable part of their market, but it has the: added advantage of being nearly a daylight consumption, thus tending to equalize the demand on the plant.

OPTICAL, Cf ear late hm Norway Sea -Thesnsalevs l.e tha Middle of a It la bow. A correspondent of Nature, sA Christiana, gives an account ot a very curious phenomenon witnessed frona the top of Gausta mountain, height 6.000 Norwegian feet, in Telemarken south of Norway. We were a party, he says, of two ladies and three gen-1 tlemen on the summit of this moun tain on August 4. On tho morning' of that day the sky was passably clear; at noon there waa a thick fog. Between 6 and 7 o'clock in the after noon (the wind being south to stouth west) the fog suddenly cleared in places so that we could see the sur rounding country in sunshine through the rifts. We mounted to the flag staff in order to obtain a better view of the scenery, and there we at once? observed in the fog, in an easterly .direction, a double rainbow forming a complete circle, and seeming to be twenty to thirty feet distant from us. In the middle of this we all Appeared as black, erect and nearly life-size silhouettes. The outlines of 'the silhouettes were so sharp that we could easily recognize the figures 'of each other and every movement was reproduced. The head of each individual appeared to occupy the center of the circle, and each of us seemed to be standing on the inner periphery of the rainbow. We esti mated the inner radius of the circle to bo six feet This phenomenon lasted several minutes, disappearing with the fogband. to be reproduced in new fog three or four times, but each time more indistinctly. The sunshine during the phenomenon seemed to be unusually bright Mr. Kielland-Torklldsen, president of the Telemarken tourist club, writes to me that the builder of the hut on the top of Gausta has twice seen specta cles of this kind, but in each case it was only the outline of the mountain that was reflected on the fog. He had never seen his own image, and he does not mention circular or other rainbows. THE SEVENTH SON. The Powers of On so Born and tha Antiquity of tha relief. Several passages of the scriptures (particularly Acts xix., 13-16), gives us a hint that the seventh son was, even at that early date, supposed to be a creature possessed of magical powers; or, at least, of an Inherent knowledge of things that were veiled to common mortals. Dr. Wilder, In his dissertation on the occult sciences, says: "The Akkadians and their suc cessors attached divine powers to the number seven, because the planets were seven in. number. Thus Saturn as the seventh planet had superior sanctity; and they also hallowed the seventh day of the week. The heal ing art was always more or lesa blended with astrology, and was a kind of priestcraft and caste distinc tion. Hence the seventh son waa regarded as a divine genius for heal ing and other sacred functions." Martinette, the French astrologer, in writing on this curious "seventh son" subject savs: "If a man be. tha seventh son of his father, without, any female intervening, ho is a mar cou.' He has on some part of hia body the mark of a fleur de lis, and, like the old-time kings of France, may be depended upon as possessing the power to cure king's evil. Alt that is necessary to effect a cure ia that the raarcou should breathe upon the affected parts, or that he admit of letting the sufferer touch the mark of the fleur-de-lis. Of all the mar cous of the Orleannis, he of Orme ia the best known and most celebrated. Every year, from twenty, thirty and even forty leagues around, crowds of patients come to visit him; but it ia particularly in Holy week that hia powers are most efficacious, and on the night of Good Friday, from mid night until sunrise, the cure is cer tain." The first person alluded to in the bible as having been a seventh son was Tiras, the son of Japheth. Diklah, the son of Joktan, belonged to the same category, but to neither are special powers attributed. Reg-matins; the Day, In different times and in different countries there have been at least four separate systems of regulating the civil day. The ancient Baby lonians reckoned from sunrise to sun rise, and a great division of the Per sians even to this day reckon the day as beginning at noon. The Romans finished one day and commenced an other at midnight and it was from them that we have inherited our time-reckoning custom. The Athe nians, and the Jews, Oust prior to the crucifixion, at least,) finished the day with sunset The scientists have their tidereal" and "solar" modes of keeping track of the flight of time, besides a variety of other systems.
