color idea, the ices being In violet and
while tints, and the tables were deco

slik, trimmed with velvet a shade darker,
and she carried a large bunch of violets,
and wore the same flowers on
her corsage. Mrs. Smith's toilette
was a very handsome black satin, and
she wore pink roses. It was an elegant
and delightful reception—another social
success to be added to the many which
already belong to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph
R. Smith, Jr., and their charming young
daughter. Mrs. and Mi*g Smith were as

The marriage of Miss Annie Bush and
Mr. W. D. Nesbitt on last Thursday

smllax and garlands of pink satin rib
bon. Piano lan'is, with pink shades,
were placed among the palms on the ros
trum, end the seats set aside for the
family were marked by wide pink satin
ribbons. It was a pink and white wed

carnations, tied with pink ribbon. There
were ten groomsmen besides ushers, and

loveliness, in a magnificent white satin
toRette veil, orange blossoms, and car
rying a huge bunch of white carnations.
She came In with her father. Col. T. G.
Bush. The wedding at the church was
followed by a brilliant reception at the
handsome home of the bride’s parents.

quisite costume of silver grey silk, grey

tions. The presents were magnificent
Bnd came from friends In many parts
of the country. Mrs. R. P. Nesbitt,
mother of the groom, wore a handsome
black satin toilette, and Mrs. Glover, his
sister, both of Marietta, Ga., was gowned
in pink brocaded satin, trimmed with

A Southern Product of Considerable Value,
Is of Great Value as Hog
Prof. B. Irby of the North Carolina
Agricultural college writes as follows
concerning the peanut:
The peanut, or ground pea, deserves
more recognition as a feed crop than it
receives at present. Most people think
that it is worth only what it will bring
on the market, and as that is very little
at present there are not many enthusi
astic growers of this useful crop. The
main use made of them is for the pro
duction of oil, then for eating, as they
can be bought on every street corner.
But there is a use that farmers should
consider, and that is for hog food. This
crop is also a renovator, though not gen
erally so considered. If the whole crop
is removed, thus# suddenly exposing the
damp soil to the sun, it will be injured
mechanically, in addition to having all
the stored-up elements removed from the
soil in the crop. In the case of clover,
peas, soja beans and other renovators, a
great part of the crop is left in the roots
stubble and shattered leaves, but with
peanuts the ground is pretty well cleared
of all the crop. Then, too, the land is
often damaged by the hogs rooting in it
In wet weather, thus damaging it in a
mechanical way. If they were turned
on the land only when it was dry enough
to plow then it would receiveno material
The vines make a fine soiling crop, and
when cured make a most ^tcellent hay
for all kinds of stock, and, I might add,
they are very easily cured. To plant,
fertilize and cultivate the crop is ab'out
the only expense when used for hog feed,
as the swine do their own harvesting,
hence the profit ought to be good. In
some districts they are ravaged by
crows, but this can be easily prevented.
Take common cotton strings and stretch
around the field, supported by sticks
about 4 feet long. Only one strand Is
necessary. If the field is large run
strings across about every 50 yards. The
crow is a very suspicious bird, and on
seeing the strings he at once imagines
that you have a trap fixed for him. This
plan is far more effective than the scare
As for fertilizing, many of the best
farmers in the Atlantic states use only
lime gotten by burning the oyster shell.
I would advise a liberal supply of lime
in some form in addition to the regular
fertilizers. Much of this Atlantic coast
line land is very sandy and is deficient
in lime. Gypsum would be a cheap and
good form of lime to use, where the shell
lime is cheap and good form of lime to
use, where the shell lime is expensive.
These lands, when rolling, are usually
liable to be injured by drouth, as they
are so porous that the water readily
leaches out of them and passes away
through the subsoil, carrying with it the
available food, so the crop suffers not
only in a time of drouth from lack of
water, but from scarcity of plant food.
The land would aid in fixing the fertiliz
ing elements in the soil until they were
needed by the plants. The crop should
be fertilized about like a pea crop, with a
larger proportion of phosphorus and pot
The fertilizer can be mixed with good
results in the following proportion: Cot
ton seed meal, 600 pounds; acid phos
phate. 800 pounds; kainlt, 600 pounds.
Apply in drill just before planting, and
endeavor tp put the fertilizer about one
or two inches below where the seed will
be placed. Cultivate with hoe. single
horse cultivator, and later with sweep
or scrape, slightly elevating the rows.
If the land is level it will be found very
economical to check the rows, as it will
save hard work. Be sure to keep clear of
crab grass.

New Slang in Gotham.
New York Journal.
There is a new bit of slang in town
which came into being when two young
newspaper men happened to be in the
Fifth Avenue hotel the other afternoon.
The men saw a very pompous man,
well known In society circles, who never
leaves his home for his club until
afiernoon, and is then beringed and per
fumed to the nines, and who always
dresscB in the very extreme of male fash
This man. whose name Is not at all
necessary to the story, has what Diok
ens called In the case of Mr. Turveydrop,
a ’’deportment." He walks with stately
tread and makes ns much fuss in pro
gressing ns a sldewheel steamboat.
“That man.” said one of the newspaper
rnen. as he watched the assertive manner
of the society leader, “is burning a lot of
red ilro for himself as he walks along.”
"Burning a lot of red lire” Is now a
sentence to be used when you mean to
convoy that somebody thinks he is some
body of importance.
Washington Star.
“Miranda," said Mr. Proudpaugh, "we
must put some money by every month to
pay for the education of our boy.”
"Yes, indeed," was the reply.
"I want him to have a chance to learn
things In a practical way, as well as from
"Do you, dear?”
"Of course. I mean that he shall trav
el, so as to get a clear Idea of what he
reads about; that he shall, by personal
contact, acquire knowledge that is too
commonly and conAdently assumed to be
communicated by mere theory.”
“I understand, George. And I am sure
he will take kindly to that method of
education. Look at the little dear this

The Great City Gets an Enormous Flood
of Clear and Filtered Fluid.
The whole of greater London, covering
an area of about 680 square miles, is sup
plied by those organizations, whoso powers
and districts are defined by law. The six
Thames companies are allowed to draw a
maximum supply of 120,000,000 gallons a
day, the East London is allowed to take
88,000,000 gallons, and the New River
22,500,000 gallons a day from the Lea.
Tho rest comes from the chalk wolls.
There is also, however, a supplementary
supply drawn by several companies from
the gravel beds by the side of the Thames,
and in times of flood or drought this nat
ural supply is very useful.
The daily total Is about 220,000,000 gal
lons, or 40 gallons per head. Every drop
of tho water Is carefully purified, with
tho exception of that from tho wells. For
this purposo the companies have 114 filter
beds, covoring 117>i acres. Evory com
pany, except tho Kent, has storage reser
voirs, in which water is kept in readiness
for emergencies. Thero aro storage reser
voirs fofr uuflltercd waier, covoring 474 M
acres and holding 1,{FO,000,000 gallons,
and 00 flltorod water reservoirs, holding
217.000. 000 gallons—that is to say, if evory
eourco of supply were cut off, London
would have enough water in store for little
more than a weok.
The pumping operations represent an
enormous expenditure of force. The
Southwark company, for instance, pumps
12.000. 000 gallons evory day a dlstauco of
18 miles to Nunhead, with a rlso of 216
feet, for distribution thence to the other
parts of the district. The pipes, too, are
often enormous in size, some of the tun
nels being 0 feet in diameter. As for tho
length, there aro in all London 5,000 miles
of water pipes, on which thero are somo
27,025 hydrants. It is hard to gain from
mere figures an adequate conception of tho
oxtent of London’s water supply, but the
enormous stream of water flows steadily
into tho houses—over 800,000 of them—
day nfter day, carefully filtered and puri
fied, and the system contrasts curiously
with tho old New Kiver water carts and
Chelsea’s woodon pipes.—Chambers’ Jour
N An Interesting Mexican Tillage.
Tetxtcingo is the euphonious name of a
village of 1,000 inhabitants, in tho district
of Morelos, state of Morelos, which has
preserved tho customs and tho languago of
its founders, who settled thore in tho re
mote past. Tho inhabitants aro all In
dians of the purest Mexican or Aztec
blood. They scorn the idea of intermix
ture or intermarriago with any other race.
Their boast is that they are pure Mexicans.
They all speak the native language. A
few understand Spanish, but the groat
majority do not know one word of it.
Tho men wenr their hair long and plait
ed in a tall liko a Chinaman. They wear
short pants, liko tlioso used by bathers,
made of doerskln or of cotton woven by
their women. The shirt, or body dress,
is made of cotton cloth, also wovon at
home. Tho womon dress entirely in homo
spun material and never comb tholr hair,
which they wear rolled up in a ball on tho
top of the head, and over it they put a
jicara made f.-om a common gourd. They
livo upon corn and fruits and the flesh of
animals and birds trapped in tho forests
and hills. They consui'no nothing what
ever that is importod, and they support
themselves entirely by their native pro
ductions. Governor Alarcon of the stato
of Morelos told a Herald representative
that robberios are totully unknown in the
village.—Mexican Herald.
Social Equality Rales.
Whenever men are remanded to a situa
tion whore personal worth has sway, so
cial equality reappears among them. In
danger of any kind, in times of great hard
ship, in periods of struggle or suspense,
In moments of patriotic emotion, equality
again characterizes life, and one man Is as
good as another. In new countries, whero
people livo in the need of neighborhood
and kindliness, equality is the rule; they
laugh at the notion of anything else. That
is the reason why equality was so long tho
Ideal of America, for hero we were every
where emancipated from tho old classifica
tions by tho necessity which knows no eti
quotto. We were forced to simplify our
solvos. Tho now world, wbllo it was new,
had no uso for the distinctions and differ
ences of an older civility, and the eastern
er, even now, whou he goes west finds a
wholo section Incredulous of claims which
his own sophistication has admitted.—

ciety,” by W. D. Howells, in Century.

"Well, you just come around and let
