The Amount of Money That Is Spent Each Year In Keeping of the Cul ture of Frulte and Floral Planta It Astounding. The sum of money annually spent on the maintenance of gardens In' England In staggering. | Of course It will be understood that ; part of this expenditure Is remunera tlve—that la to nay, there Is Hume re turn In the crops provided for home use; but this Is. after nil, only a small proportion of the whole, and In tho l • ise of many gardens (where hothouse ftiiltw, for example, arb grown) It Is | w*II recognized that the owner could more cheaply purchase his supplies at | market, eo that It may bo fairly stated | that tho bulk of tho vast sum men tioned below is spent in ministering to tho pleasure of well to do people. , I There are In England. Scotland and Wales no fewer than 10,000 places dig nified with the title of "country seats." These are not small houses, but Ibo residences of noblemen ami gentlemen, many of whom keep large staffs of gardeners ant laborers, it would bo a low estimate to place (he average cdsl of labor and cottage accommoda tion at each of those stalk ol $25 a week—or, soy, $1,250 a year. This alono will amount to a sum of $12,500,- 000. The up keep of the garden, (he re pair of glass houses, the purchase of manures, seeds and plants would, at a vory moderate estimate, run to $:,00 a year. The figure might be placed much higher, but at SSOO a year an other $5,000/000 1s put together. This does not Include capital expenditure, which in some gardens b vuj Jarge. In some gardens foity, fifty or more glats houses may be found, and, omit ting tho cart of-labor anti of the gar-. dnna odcnpjpl, the actual money ex penditure is very large. In the ten thousand country seats am not Includ ed the numerous sulmiban houses of some pretensions watch enclre.lo all the large towns, at each of which a gardener Is employed with more or les regularity..and nothing Is allowed for the expenditure of that vast army of followers of “the art which Is na ture" wdtO do the work for themselves. If nil these sums are put together tho total spent by those who keep gar dens, large and small, would not bo found loss than $50,000,000 annually. Which Is the mo: t expensive garden Ini England? It Is not an easy ques tion to answer. One Instinctively turns to Chalaworth, whoso fame Is world wide; to tlpe ma/.nld cut grounds of T|euthßm Hall, owned by the Duke of Sitherland; to the Marquis of Ditto’s garden* at Cardiff Castlo, where open air ferajlfl growing Hat achieved some success after costly experiments; or to the neighboring mat of I/crd Manual lock, nt Monmouth. Hut If Instead of "expensive garden" wo wrro to deal with "the most expensive group of garden's” one would turn away from all of them and look toward the Buck inghamshire home of the Rothschilds. In a circle of a few miles around Ment more—the lovely home of the versatile former Premier, Lord Rosebery, will ho found some of the most magnificent gardens In the kingudm, managed by largo staffs of men. and carried on with a disregard for money which Is not surprising when itio owners are Rothschilds. It Is a fortunate thing for tho horticultural trade and for gardening In general that nearly ev ery member of this famous family has an Intense love of flowers, and It Is an open secret that no city rivalry could lie keener than that which has swayed the Rothschilds In their country homes, each endeavoring to produce bettor results than the other, or, In deed, than any one else has attained. Was there a striking group of hardy plants seen at a London/Sliow> Im mediately slept would hq. taken to get a better one by the late Baron, Ferdi nand, who durln;; hla Hfetijno was us keen a gardener as any of liis rela tives. Are there any magnificent roses exhibited? Mr, Leopold de RWhf.ehlld does not hesitate to send his capable rosegrower any ill tame to see the garden where they were produced, In order to learn how to go om hotter. Arc there new and spendld orchids Imported? No one re ready to buy them as Lord Rothschild, at whbse beautiful home at Trlng Park there Is a magnificent collection. I ately Mr. Leopold de Rothschild l;ai been In terested In carnationV an Ia large houae has been built specially for there flowers alone. If the large sutno given for rare and new orchids— SSOO for a plant being by no means an out-of the-way price—is borne In mind and the .cost of keeping Is made the main test, It Is probable that Lord Roths child’s garden and grounds nt Trlng would come first as the most expensive In England. The expen. o of the main tenance of such a place is enormous. There arc aliout forty of fifty gar deners and laborers constantly em ployed, and their wages alone would make a tolerable inconje,,lor a city man —let us say $12,500 a Then there arc the repairs of houses and their modification, furnaces to he sup plied with coal, water, which must be brought In ample quantities whenever stove culture is attempted and Is need ed In all parts of the garden, and seeds to be purchased, to say nothing of plants. In regard to plants any trustworthy estimate is impossible, for the price may vary from a few pence to hundreds of pounds. Walls have to built for fruit growing, nets bought to protect tho tender buds In spring and to keep off tho birds from newly sown ground, etc., and the tools and the hundred and one Incidentals would help to swell the total. Domestic Ability. An aristocratic East Superior street woman, who has had the usual number of failures In the way of domestics, having tried nearly every nationality, heard the other day that a number of girls bad come here from Finland to Seek employment as servants and that they were highly recommended as strong, Intelligent, capable and gener ally excellent help. With high hope the housekeeper hied her to the office where these par agons were on exhibition, and was soon brought face to face with a brawny specimen, who could not speak a word of English. With the aid of an Interpreter the following conversation took place: “Can you cook?” "Oh. no.” "Can you wash and Iron?” "No.” " “ "Can you sweep and dust or clean house?"

M. S. DIAMOND ROCK. A Famous Spot In Martinique Which May Alto be Doomed. On the southern coast of Martinique, Bpparated from the mainland by a deep channel, lies a perilous, weather beaten rock, known to the people of the West Indies as IT. M. 8. Diamond Rock. Whenever a British admiral approaches this famous spot the en sign Is dipped and the band plays "Rule Britannia." The honor Is well deserved, for Diamond Rock was once borne on the books of the British ad miralty as an English sloop-of-war. In Charles Kingsley’s book “At T.ast," the following history Is given; In the end of 1803 Sir Samuel Hood saw that French ships passing to Fort Royal Harbor In Martinique escaped him by running through tho deep channel between Polnte du Dia mante and this same rock, which rises sheer out of the water 000 feet and Is about a mile round and only acces sible at a point to the leeward, and even then only when there Is no surf. He who lands. It Is said, has then to creep through crannies and danger ous steeps around to the windward side, when the eye Is suddenly reliev ed by a sloping prove of wild fig trees ellngtng by Iniimerablo nlr roots to tho crooks of the stene. Po Hood, with that inaplrntlon of genius so common among sailors, laid his seventy-four, tho Centaur, close alongside the Diamond, made a haw ser with a traveller on it fast to tho ahlp and to the top of the rook, and In January, 180-1, got three long twenty fours and two elgbteeaa battled up far above his masthead by sailors, who as they hung like clusters, appeared like mice hauling a little sausage. Scarce ly could we bear the governor on the fop directing them with his trumpet: the Centaur lying close under, like a cocoamtt shell, to which the hawsers are affixed. In this strange fortress I,lent. Wilkie Maurice (let the name be recol lected ns one of England's forgotten worthies) was established with 120 men and boys and ammunition, provi sions and water for four months; and the rock was borne on the books of the admiralty as Ills Majesty’s Hhlp Diamond Rock and swept the seas with her guns until tho first of June, ISOS, who she bad to surrender,’for want of powder, to a French squadron of two seventy-fours, a frigate, a cor vette, a schooner and ol“ven gunboats, alter killing end wounding some sev enty men on the'rock alone, and de stroying two gunboats, with a loss to herself of two men killed and one wounded.

Max Muller In his "Science of Lan guage” referred to English laborers who had not more than 300 words In their vocabulary. Tho correctness of this statement Is disputed by the Popu lar Science Monthly. M. C and H. Dale, of the University of Minnesota, having made a elose study of the ques tion, report that nil such geucrallza tlons or estimates ore misleading, nnd that the average ehlld two nnd a half years old uses In one day from six to eight hundred different words. It Is not a burning question, nnd most people mny not care how many words a child uses In a day. but Mrs. Onle did and she made an actual count of Words used by a boy and a girl. The boy aged two and a half years, used 751'different words In a day and made a record for the day of 9,200 words. A girl of tho same age used 020 different words In n day and made a record of 8.992 words for the day. Of the 751 words used by Ihe boy, 300 were nouns, 189 verbs. 83 adjec tives, 42 adverbs, 8 Interjections, 27 pronouns, 21 propositions end 14 ar ticles nnd conjunctions, nnd of all the different words C 4 per cent were used In (he first five hours of the day. The full vocabulary of the boy was 1.432 nnd of the girl 1,308 words. Neither used In any one day all the words at bis or her command. The boy used his own name 1.057 times In one day. while the girl used “I,” "me" and “my” 970 times and the word “little” (ICO times. One hoy, two years old, used 10.507 words In one day. The deductions from these facts are that a child 1s as active with Its tongue as with Its legs, that a child uses n larger proportion of verba than the adult, that the “everlasting no" takes precedence of the submissive yes, that the ehlld uses short words because of their servlceableneas, hut does not hesitate to grapple with unu modify long, hard words, and Invents words on Impulse when its needs re quire. Observation shows that a child of 4 or 5 does not use as many words In a day as a child of 2, but there Is no record of any one attempt ing to count the words of a- boy of 8 who "wants to know.”—Chicago Inter- Ocean. A Question of Diet Emil Zola, or one of the novelist’s advocates, has stated that round the stomach and its functions gathers half the Importance and Interest of life. With the correctness of the conclu sions that the realist school draw from this we have nothing to do, but there Is certainly something to be said for the premiss. A lady married to a German husband sought a separation on the ground that he neglected to provide suitable maintenance for her and the children. It appeared that he used to buy dogs' meat at 2d a pound, and receive from Germany salted her rings, green cheese, and black bread; and to give the green cheese and black bread a relish this German spouse made a special preparation of goose fat to serve as butter. The lady did not get her separation, and we can only hope that she and her huslfind may come to some arrangement about the characteristics of suitable food. There was no other cause ol disagree ment between them, and we can only repeat the time-honored advice of “Feed the brute.” Surely a husband fed on green cheese, black bread, and goose fat would become amenable to reason? —Pall Mall Oazette.

Through all those years he also kept up constantly the active practice of his laborious profession.

The following recipes sug gest excellent ways of preparing It: Boiled rice pudding- One cupful of cold boiled rice, one cupful of sugar, four eggs, a pinch of soda and a pinch of salt; put It all in a bowl and bent until It Is very light ami white. Beat four ounces of butter to a cream, put It Into the pudding, with ten drops of essence of lemon. Beat all together for five minutes, Butter a mold, pour tho pudding Into It nnd boll for two hours. Servo with sweet fruit sauce. Rice pudding without eggs—Two quarts of milk, two-thirds of a cupful of rice, a cupful of sugar, a piece of butter ns large as n walnut, a tea spoonful full of cinnamon, a little nut meg and a pinch of salt. Put Into a moderate oven; stir It once or twice until It begins to cook, l.et It remain In the oven about two hours—until It Is the consistency of cream. Eat hot or cold. CANNED STRAWBERRIES. Fill a quart Jar with largo, ripe ber ries, from which the hulls have born taken; fill the Jar with cold water, then pour It out again Into ft measure. For every twelve Jars to be put up use thirteen of those measures of water, and In It dissolve six pounds of sugar. Park the Jars with berries as closely as possible without mashing them. Fill each Jar up to Hie suoulder with syrup, eover It loosely with the lid and set It In ft largo boiler, which should have a loosely fitting wooden bottom pierced with holes. If set on the metal bottom the Jars are liable to crack. When the boiler Is full of Jars pour In cold water up to their shoulders; rover It and set It on the fire. At the same time put the sur plus syrup in a sauce pan and allow It to become hot.

CHEESE ON DINNER TABLE. Some people think cheese Is relegat ed to Its proper place when It appears on the luncheon or supper table, and never place It on the dinner table ex cept as an accompaniment of apple pie. This Is a mistake. Cheese In not only a toothsome morsel, hut It Is also a valuable aid to digestion at a time when the digestive organs are taxed to their utmost. It has been said that a small piece of good old dairy cheese will digest an entire din ner, and It Is an assured fact that people having trouble with their diges tion are greatly relieved if they form the habit of taking cheese at dinner. The, cheese should appear on the table aft'-r Hie dessert and before the coffee, and should ha served with wafer crackers or thin, crisp pieces of toart. MINTS FOR THE HOUSEWIFE.

Never clean a drawing room or din ing room without folding up the table covers, etc., and covering up the fur niture with sheets; fold the curtains, having shaken them well first, then strew tea leaves over the carpet and brush It well. Ivory that Is discolored may be whitened by rubbing it with a paste compound of burnt pumice stone and water, and then place it under glass in the sun. Arresting Persons for the Rewards. "It's time something vres being done to put a stop to the practice indulged in by certain men of arresting per sons suspected of being fugutives from the insane asylum,” remarked a police man a few days ago. “There Is a standing reward for the arrest of es caped patients, and a number of peo ple about Hillsdale and Anacosta seem to be on the lookout for them. Some pedestrians and even some per sons who rw>re in vehicles have been ‘held up' and subjected to annoyances. “The practice of these men.” added the officer, ‘is something on the order of the conduct of some members of the police force, who seem to be on the look out most of their time for desert ers from the army and navy. "There Is a standing reward for these deserters." he concluded, “and it is related that some of the police men always have one or two of them spotted to arrest when their pocket books are empty.”—Washington Star.
