Third district. Open the door, but do it
with as little noise as possible."
I abeyed, and found the two men
standing on the threshold. Officer Per

me, but beyond me, over my shoulder,
into the farthest recesses of the hall, as
though searching for some one. Then,
with a oilent salute, he entered, followed
rather recluctantly, it seemed by the

my turning the key in the door, had
tried the bolt, and, removing the key
silently handed it to me.
In the library Perrin turned to me.

he said in the unit low voice as before,

from his oil-skin cap.

Perrin ported Goodman at the foot of

heard in ope of the rooms above a sound
as of a drawer being opened. Then there
waa a sharp, metallic ring, and some ob

the burglar waa at work. Before I had

I rushed up and attempted to open the

I rushed to the landing. The window

How Fresh Meats arc Exported.
The shippers by the Cunard and In-
man lines use the ice and salt process,
but the steamers of the other lines use
simply a current of cold air. All the
meat to be preseived by either process is
first chilled at the slaughter-house when
killed. No attempt is made to freeze it.
but it is chilled sufficiently to extract all
he animal heat. After this the meat is
handled with great care, every possible

being bruised. It is taken in large
wagons direct to the steamer, cut in
quarters, which are hung to the ceiling
of the compartment, with sufficient room
between each quarter to prevent them
rubbing together. When the meat is
put in the ice compartment has already
been fided, so that the refrigeration
begins as soon as the meat is put on
The ice and salt process is said to be
somewhat cheaper than the cool air pro
cei. For the first named system the
compartment is divided by a' partition,
which gives about one-third ot all the
space lor the ice, fcc.,'tbe other two-thirds
of' the epace being used for the stowage
of the beef ; all the space ia made thor
oughly airtijiht by making an indepen
dent wall and ceiling it with zinc over
felt. In the ice compartment there are
inlr duced several large iron pipes, which
receive all the condensed discharge from
the main engines cf the steamer. The
water thus introduced is cooled by the
pipes being buried under a mass of ice
covered with salt. The water, when
cooled, is forced by a small Jindependent
engine through the coils introduced in
the meat compartment; it then runs
back through the ice, is cooled again and
again forced through the coils. By this
process it is said the temperature can be
reduced below the freezing point, if nec
essary, within a few minutes.
For the cool-air process the space is
divided and fitted up in the same manner.
Various connections are made between
the ice-box and meat compartment by
means of pipes and wooden tubes, which
open in all directions about the meat.
A small independent engine, supplied
from the main boilers, works a large
blower in the ice-box and forces the
coid air thus created through the meat.
When the blower is set going the two
compartments are air-tight, ko that none
of the cold draught is waited and ns air
from the out?ide can enter. The same
air is used continually throughout the
voyage, unless the cold should be too
great, when other air may be admitted ;
a thermometer is placed so as to be seen
from the outside, and in this way there is
never any necessity of opt ning the com
partment. JVVw York Buh-i n.
What is a Registered Letter
The question is very often asked,
what is the difference between a reg
istered letter and any other? The dif
ference is that a registered letter does
not go in the mail proper. It passes
from h;.nd to hand outside the mail
pouches, fvery person through whose
hands it pae?es beine required to sign a
receipt for it on receiving it, and secure
a receipt for it on passing it over to the
next in transit. The per?oa holding the
last receipt is thus always able to show
who is accountable for the loss. The
responsibility rests upon the man who
has signed a receipt for the registered
package and who is Dot able to produce
the package or a receipt from somebody
eUe for it. The safest way to send
money is 1T money order. VYhere it
does not go to a money-otdcr office it
should always be sent in a registered
packace. Money ftught not to be sent
in an "ordinary letter under any dr

FARM AND U1RDEN.
Planting Corn la Drills.
Among the experiments of the
sas agricultural college last year.
one having for its object to ascertain the
relative values of the two methods of
planting corn in hills and in drills,
Four plats were laid off across a portion
of the held very uniform as to tne cnar
acter of the soil. Each plat contained
four rows of corn, the rows being three
and a half feet apart. In the first plat
the corn was planted " in drills, in the
second in di ills after the common fash
ion : again, the third was planted in
drills and the fourth in hills.. When the
corn was about six inches high the drill
ed plats were thinned out, leaving the
stalks as nearly as possible ten inches
apart in the rows ; the plats in hills were
likewise thinned out, leaving the same
number of stalks in every plat throughout
the experiment. In cultivating the
plats care was taken to give each the
same treatment, and beyond thinning,
hoeing once and cultivating twice, no
special treatment was given the plats.
The corn was husked November J 1, and
the weighings showed for the drilled
plats a yield of seventv one bushels per
acre, for the plats in hills sixty-two and
a half bushels per acre, an advantage in
lavor ot the method of planting in drills
of eight and a half bushels per acre. By
the "bushel" ot corn mentioned in these
experiments is to be understood in every
case seventy-two pounds of ears.
To Hate Hens Lay.
A writer in the umo farmers gives
the following method for making hens
Put two or msre quarts of water in a

small ones, then put the kettle over the

coarse ground Indian meal, until you

or so. r eed hot. Horse raddih chop
ped fine, and stirred into mush as pre
pared in the above directions, and for re
sults we are getting five to ten eggs per
day; whereas previous so feeding we
had not had eggs for a long time. We
hear a great deal of complaint from
other people about not getting eggs. To
such we would warmly recommend
cooked food fed hot. Boiled apple skins,
seasoned pepper ; or boiled potatoes, sea
soned wish horseraddish, is good for
feed much better than uncooked corn.
Corn, when fed to the hen by itself, has
a tendency to fatten hens instead of pro-
j . . i , i
aucing me more proniame egg-iaying.
A spoonful of sulphur stirred with their
feed occasionally will rid them of vermin
and tone up their systems. It is espe
cially good for young chickens or
turkeys. Out of a flock of ten hatched
last November, we have lost but one.
They have been fed cooked feed mostly,
and are growing finely.
9lrIIew aoil Around Treea-
Unless the surface of the ground is
mulched around young trees over an
area of six to ten feet in diameter, the
ground should be kept clean and mel
low. Every farmer knows that a hill
of corn or potatoes will not amount to
much unless cultivated, and yet there
are :i any who will neglect to give the
same care to a tree that is worth a hun
dred hills of either of the former. In
rich soil trees may grow rapidly without
cultivation, and no amount of grass or
weeds will retard them : but there are
other things besides these to be looked
after. If the weeds and grass are allow
ed to grow up around the stem of apple,
peach, or quince trees, the bark will be
come soft near their base by being shaded,
and thereby in a suitable condition for
the reception ot the eggs which will
eventually become peach or apple
borers. Take any dozen young apple
trees in sections where the appla
borer is abundant, and allow a por
tion to be choked with weeds, and the
remainder well cultivated, and then
watch the result. From our experi
ence, we believe the chances ar nine
to one inavor of those cultivated beinr

Whilst admitting the importance of
soil, climate, and a good variety in the
successful growing of strawberries, I am
yet inclined to believe that, with careful
cultivation, very fine fruit raay be grown
in all garden soils. The great mistake
made by many is planting too thickly at
the first, and allowing the plants to re
main from year to year on the same bed.
Thus we often find the plants growing
together in a tangled mass, and the re"
suit is when a pinch of dry weather
comes in June or July, they receive a
serious check, the quality of the fruit is
depreciated, and the constitution of the
plant weakened, possibly so much so that
the plants are unabie to filature their
fruiting ciowns for the following sea-on.
Thus the plants go on from bad to worse.
Such a "lazy bed" system will fully
account for some "varieties growing and
cropping well for a few years, and then
becoming almost barren and the fruit

The longevity of fowls and the hen's
capacity for laying eggs varies with
different breeds oftentimes with differ
ent specimens of the &ame breed. It is
commonly supposed that a hen will pro
duce 600 eggs in the course of her lifetime,
on an average. This is true as regards
certain breeds, but is above and below the
right number with other breeds. The
Leghorns are said to lay 200 eggs per

Well wash the ceiling by wetting int

Robbing- the Soil.
Few farmers consider that each crop
that is grown and removed from the soil
has taken away so much strength and vir
tue from it ; that in the stalk and kernel
is found the concentrated richness that
was in the ground until transformed by
the mysterious ways of nature in its trans
formation. Nature asks no aid from the
husbandman, neither will it quitetly
brook being plundered, but, instead, fol
lowing eac demand made upon it in a
way of a crop, it is found reduced and
worn, ani will not again attain to its
lormer merit until there is restored to it
equally and proportionate what has been
taken from it.
Rotation in crops is demonstrated as
being not only best, but demanded; the
continual growing and gathering from
the same fiel i a hardest of the same or
kindred product will in due time deprive
the soil in the field of the ability to pro
duce that especial article, as it has taken
from the soil all that is necessary for the
successful production of that crop, and

The practice of steaming food for cat

cases where a sufficiently large number
ot cattle are kept, it is a matter ot sub

fodder, hay that is -slightly mouldy, and
even straw, cut and steamed, with a
slight admixture of bran or meal, have
proved to be quite as good Jor stock, as
the best hay uncooked. But lew exper
iments have been made in this direction
with sheep. Mr. Arvine C. Wales, of
Ohio, communicates to the Country Gen
tleman, a detailed report of his practice
in feeding 1,500 sheep with cut and
Steanirtl enrn fodder. After dpsorihinir
his method of raising the fodder corn, he
The stock now being fed requires
about three tons of dry feed per day.
The cutting is done by a No. six Cum
mins cutter, and it is so arranged that
the cut feed as it falls from the cutting
machine is carried to and placed in the
tanks, wet up with the necessary quanti
ty of wa;er, and mixed with bran or
meal by machinery, so that when the
cutting is done the feed is ready Cor the
steam. Three men in an hour and a half
can cut three tons. With the present
boiler capacity, it takes one man four
hours more to steam it. The cost of fuel
for cutting, mixing, steaming. Dumoinif.
etc., is about five cents per ton of dry
feed. The cut i much more easily and
rapidly distributed to the animals than
long feed. His t-hoveled from the tanks
down into the wagons with side-boards,
that stand below the bottoms of the
tanks, and carried to the sheepfolds. The
racks are made to accommodate twenty
sheep, and this number is found to need
about two bushels of cut feed. The
feeder has two two bushel baskets,
while he is carrying one to the xaek, the
boy fills the o'.her. In this way a man
aud a boy can feed and care for 1,500
sheep. The fodder is eaten up clean, a

strength of staple rarely found on sheep
wintered on dry feed. There ia no jar,
or tender place in the wool indicating
the point in the growth of the fiber
where the sheep changed from green to
dry feed. All the wool buyers observe
this ; and the wool, it is believed, com
manded a higher price than any other
clip bought from first hands in this or
any of the adjoining counties.
It is not claimed that the steaming of
feed adds to its nutritive elements. But
as the pulverization and stirring of the
soil promote the growth of plants by
making the plant food more accessible to
the plants, bo the steaming ot feed
makes it at once more palatable and
more readily digested'and assimilated by
the animals, and performs the same office
for their food that cooking does for ours.

The Future of the Telephone.
The Boston correspondent of the New

an interview with JNlr. Watson, ol tele

Watson said to-day, "that in a few
months things will be so that a man can

will entirely supersede the present sys

" Yes, we expect it will, eventually.
A company is now forming for the pur
pose of manufacturing and introducing

replace the old dot and line alphabet
system entirely. We expect, at first, it
will be used mostly on private lines and
for city business. It will probably take
the place of the present district tele

Mr. Watson remarked that the intro

have the effect ot inc; rising tne tele

would hasten the time when the wires
would have to be laid under ground in

our American opera managers. An
American audience could hear Nils-

the receiving machine in the Boston
music hall, lor instance, and let the
songstress put her mouth close to the

be the same as if the prima donna herself

" Certainly." said Mr. Watson, smil

what effect the presence of the voice and

Watson said that, as far as he had been
able to ascertain, there seemed to be a
limit to the distance over which the
sound could be made to travel ; but he
expressed himself as confident that in
due time any given distance could le

added, " talked through a wire arranged
to give an artificial resistance equal to
40,000 ohms, which is more resistance
than the entire length of the Atlantic
cable would offer. But there are other
obstacles to be overcome in order to

The Future of Memphis.
Memphis evidently is not willing to
remain content with mere mediocrity.
Great progress has been made as is shown
by the statisticts recently compiled by
her chamber of comrr-erce and cotton
exchange, which show her consumption
to be largely on the increase ; but to
achieve greatness, she must do something
else besides consume she must produce
also, be able to exjiort for the wants of
outside markets as well as to import for
those of her own ; this fact she appears
to be awake to, as during the past year
several new enterprises have been started
within her borders, among which may be
noted a woolen factory, oil mill, flouring
mills, and a new soap factory, capable of
producing annually fifty thousand boxes.
The progress, however, is not to stop
here, for it is contemplated at an early
date to inaugurate another and probably
more important enterprise than the
above, one that will aflbrd employment
to hundreds whose sex shuts them out
from other industries, and render them
at present somewhat unprofitable mem
bers of the community. We allude to
the project on foot for the erection of a
cotton factory with'a capital of five hun
dred thousand" dollars, which is rapidly

management will doubtless prove a great

who has made you a woman ; who has
placed you m a sheltered position ; who
has interposed between you and the

devotion and strength of man. Sit back
in your curtained house, where you need

in ,your empire. But dare not be idle
there. Your hands, if they are dainty

which throbs under your smooth brow
and flashes from your dark eyes, only to
be fed by romance and hction. verily,

burden as well as his. A day may come

and yourself. Keep his heart warm witn
confidence and approval. Tell him bold

Keep his thoughts at home. Don't let

An Indian Dnel.
Omaha Herald: A citizen of Sioux
City, who has tpent much time amonj
the agencies of the up-river Indians,
says it is amusing, as well as touching, to
hear an Indian sing his death song.
Our informant was at Standing Rock
a lew months since, and one day he ob
served an unusual stir among the In
dians. Soon two bucks came forth from
different lodges, each with a gun in his
hand. They walked out some distance
from the rest of the Indians and took
posts, distant from each other about fifty
3rards. At a given signal they fired.
Both fell, wounded, one fatally. They
were immediately surrounded by friends,
who made no particular effort to bind up
their wounds, but simply stood around
talking among themselves and gesticulat
ing, while the wounded Indians, as soon
as they fell, began their death song.
There was little music in it. It was a
deep-down, unnatural tone ef voice,
kept up for half a minute or so at a time
when it would ceate, and the sufferers
would in the interim make a confession
of all the evil deeds they had ever done.
They would tell of the massacres in
which they had engaged ; how many
scalps they had lifted from the heads of
white people; the number of ponies they
had stolen, together with all sorts of lm
portant and unimportant evil doings in
their lifetime, lhis accomnliscc, they
were ready to give up the ghost.
Draining a Lake.
The Florida Agriculturist, says lake
Okeechobee is about forty-five miles long
and twenty-five miles wide. This does
not include the marsh lands surrounding
it, which must be ot still larger dimen
sions. lhe water of the fake is very
shallow, seldom over seven feet and in
verv few places ten feet deep, and in
most parts boats cannot approach with
in two or three miles of the shore on ac
count of the shallowness. No fish live
in the lake not even an alligator can be
found as tho water is stagnant and very
offensive to the smell. . There is nothing
to prevent the draining ot this lake into
the Caloosahatchie river. A canal about
eight miles long will accomplish it, the
river having a sufficient fall to allow of
its being done. At present the outlet
from the lake to the river is closed up
by saw-grass and lily-pads, throwing the
waters ot the lake, in the rainy season
into the Everglades. What a grand
speculation there could tw made by
draining the lake and cutting the land
into forty-acre farms ? For several years
it would give the most splendid rice
crops ever seen, and then comes in sugar

ever. v e have never heard ot any

A Vvai TJVE CCKE FOR RHEUMATISM-
THE DIPOBTAIT 4rESTI03l.
Of all loathsome diseases Catarrh stands
pre-eminent. It renders its victim aa dis
gusting to himself as to others. And the
most humiliating ef all is the consciousness
that his presence ia offensive to those around
him. If any disease deserves the name of
universal, it is this. Dietetic errors and the
follies which Fashion imposes npon us tend
to foster and disseminate it. To the pitiful
cry of its victims, is there any core tor Ca
tarrh? there is but one answer consistent
with Christian reason. God has never sent
one evil into the world 'or which he has not
sent the remedy. For the greatest of all
spiritual and moral evils, the Great Phy
sician has prescribed a potent and never
failing remedy. He has given explicit roles
for the treatment and preservation of the
spiritual and moral man, but lie is silent in
all matters relating to the physical man.
It would be an unwarrantable detraction
from His beneficent character to suppose
that He has afflicted the greater portion of
humanity with an incurable disease. The
day of plagues is past. The God of Christ
ianity is a God of Love, of Mercy, His mes
sage is "good will to ail men." The earth
and all contained therein was intended by
the ,great Designer to supply man s wants ;
and Burely he has no greater wants than rem
edies for his infirmities. Science is rapidly
proving that the earth is fitted to supply
man's uttermost need. New medicinal plants
'are constantly being discovered and new
1roperties developed from thoBe already
Lnown. For Catarrh, the most potent rem

To s-nd an advertisinit order to I.I.IO newspapers
would reouire an investment of M't t.ZVO tor postage :
stationery would rot neatly as much ; the lnnr of
addrewHing envvlopee is considerable : to write
MM orders would be a gre.it tJisk ; to print them
would cost something. Our price for u five-1 ine ad
vertisement in the whole l.liVO papers, one week, in
3I..VMr eI K jess than the postage.
