♦' Easily Samoa's First Citizen."
The Department of Btate at Wash ington has received a dispatch from Consul-General Mulligan at Apia, re porting tho death of Robert Louis Stevenson. He writes: "It is with profound sorrow and a sincere sense of direct personal loss that I report the sudden and wholly unexpected death of the distinguished author and great novelist, Robert Louis Steven son, which took place at his residence, Vailiina, near this place, at 8.10 p. m. on Monday, the 3d inst., from astroko of npoplexy received about an hour and :i half before, while seated at his own hospitable table. "Aside from his world wide reputa tion in literature, Mr. Stevenson was easily the first citizen of Samoa, and the centre of its social life. As is so widely known, he was very frail, but within the last few months had become stronger and apparently more vigor ous than ever before. His hospitality was on a splendid scale, and was equally constant and unfaltering. "His remains wero interred on tho very summit of the mountain over looking his late homo at 1 o'clock yes terday, whither they were borne with inliuito difficulty by tho willing hands of n great number of Samoane." — New York Press.

A SKETCH OF TUB MAN WHO LCD I>l All Y ANDERSON TO FAME. Alio Played Lending Hole. With Booth, Unrrrit nnd Tltorne. (From the St. Louis Chronicle.) One of tho most conspicuous figures in the Stageland ot America to-day is John W. Nor ton. Born in the seventh ward o( New York City forty-six years ago, tho friends of his youth wero Thomas W. Keono ond Frank Chanfrau. We find Keene a star at the age ot 25 and Norton in the flower of early man hood the leading mau for Edwin Booth at the famous Winter Oardeu Theatre. He was starred with Lnwrenoo Barrett early in the 70s, and alternated tho leading roles with Charles Thome at tho Variety Theatro in Now Orleans. Early lu tho Centennial year, in Louisville, Norton mot our Mary Anderson, thon a fair young girl who aspired for stage fame, took her under his guldanoo and, as everybody knows, led her to fame. Mr. Norton is now the proprietor of tho Grand Opera Houso in Bt. Louis, tho Du Quesne Theatre, Pittsburg, and one of tho stockholder* in tho American Extravaganza Com pany. Ono afternoon early in Juno ho hobbled Into his New York OlTlee on Broadway nnd encountered his business manager, George McManus, who had also boon a rheumatic suf ferer for two years. Norton was surprised that McManus had discarded his cane. Who cured you? ho asked. "I cured myself," re plied McManus, "fflth Dr. Williams' rink Pills." "I was encouraged by Mr. McManus' cure and ns a last resort tried tho Pink Pills my self," said Mr. Norton to a Chronicle re porter. "You have known mo lor five years nnd know how I have suffered. Why, dur ing tho slimmer of 1893 I was on my baok at tho Mullnnphy Hospital, in tills city, four weeks. I was put ou tho old systom of diet ing, with a view to clearing thoso acidulous properties in my blood that medical theorists say is tho cause of my rheumatism. I left tho Hospital feeling stronger, but tho first damp woather brought with it thoso excru ciating pains in the legs aud back. It was the same old trouble. After sitting down for a stretch of flvo minutes tho pains screwed my logs into a knot when I arose, and I hobbled as painfully as ever. After I had taken my first box of Pink Pills it struck mo that the pains wfcre less troublesome. I tried another box, nnd I began almost un consciously to have latth In tho Pink Pills. I improved so rapidly that 1 could rise after pitting at my desk lor au hour and the twinges of rheumatism that accompanied my rising were so mild that I scarcely noticed them. During the past two weeks wo have had much rainy weather in St. Louis. Hut tho dnmpnoss has not had tho slightest effect in bringing back the rheumatism, which 1 consider a sufficient and rellablo test of tho efficacy of Pink Pills. I may also say that tho Pink Pills have acted as a tonic on my stomach, which I thought was well nigh de stroyed by tho thousand aud ouo alleged remedies 1 consumed in the past flvo years."'

A Japaneso peasant woman goes everywhere with bared- head. Iu tho cities European millinery is worn. Women aro never tired singing the praises of the fancy bodice.

The touches of black which aro seen in almost every fashionable toilet of the moment need a skilled hand for their introduction. A brown gown, for example, with black garnituro sounds odd, but is reallv efiectivo with a blending of oherry pink to keep tho two sombre shades from too closo jux taposition, In the same way a bright leaf green well sustained its black ad ditions by a judicious nse of silver gray.

LOSING USE OF LAND. Bmall fruit growers ought to fertil-! ize their land thoroughly, and when this is done they should keep it al ways producing something. If the strawberry patch is running out, cither the red or black cap raspberry can be planted the rows. In this way the year after tho strawberry plantation is cultivated under the raspberry canes will bo in full bear ing. It is tho same with tho larger fruits. A young apple or pear orch ard will grow strawberries, raspber ries and blackberries nearly as well as if the orchard were not planted until it gets fully into bearing,—Boston Cultivator. GALLED SHOULDERS. Galls of all kinds are best treated as Boon ns they occur, or they may be difficult to heal, especially when tho gall is on tho top of tho shoulder, as in this case the bruising of tho mus cle may causo interior inflammation that may result in an abscess difficult to heal. Hot fomentations of the part, followed by a poultice when tho skin is not broken, but only a swelling, with soreness, is to be seen. When tho skin is broken the beet application is calomel dusted on the raw place. This will form a protecting crust, under which the soro will heal; but the horso should rest until the skin is formed over it. Then some protec tion should bo given by a cushion over tho tender part. 111-fitting 00l- Jars or harness will surely produce these sores, and therefore should not be used.—New York Times. IMPROVEMENT OF BEES. It is argued that by exercising the principle of selection tho different strains of bees may be bred up just as well as horses and cattlo nnd the type of beo greatly improved. For in stance, suppose we havo six hives of bees, the result from each may bo very different. At tho beginning of tho honey season wo placo upon each a "super." Two of our six Btoeks start ahead with a will, and fill their "supers" as fast as they aro replaced. The other four perhaps refuso to euter, or after all only partially fill their "supers." Then they may oßeh swarm two or three times, thus furn ishing us with an iuereaso from which we hopo to havo great results in the future. But our apiary has not been in creased with a typo of beo whoso in stincts lead them to amass honoy far in excess of their needs, but with a typo whoso naturo impels them to start new colonics, and thus this type will be strongly impressed upon tho bee lifo of tho future in our apairy.— Now York World. TELLING THE AGE OF CATTLE. It is well known that tho most com mon way for anyone to tell the ago of a cow is to look at the wrinklos on her horns, but as dehorning scorns to be so much in vogue now-a-days this will harilly hold good in a great many cases. The Berlin Agricultural Asso ciation gives tho following rule as re liable to tell the age of cattlo by their toeth; Chango of teeth begins, as a rule, at the ago of ono nnd a half yoors, when tho milk middle front teeth aro shed and replaced by tho permanent front- tcoth, which come completely into position at tho end of tho second year. At two and a half years, as a rule, the inner milk front teeth fall out, and their successors aro fully in uso towards tho closo of tho fourth year. From four and a quar ter to four and a half years tho milk teeth continue to fall out, and their successors are in u6o at the end of tho fifth year. Animals got in calf boforo the end of their twentieth month have tho chango of tooth hindered, while it takes place sooner in early maturing breeds, especially the Shorthorns.— New York Witness. now TO MAKE DAIRYING PAT. This was tho subject of a paper read by B. P. Morton, at ono of the lowa Dairymen's Association meetings. Iu it ho stated that ho is milking twenty nine cows, and makes3l3J pounds of butter per cow. His butter is all shippod to tho cities of Duluth aud New Orleans, and nets him twenty four and one-half cents by the year, an average of 870,66 per cow. The food consumed by each cow he esti mates to bo worth anywhere from S3O to $35, and that the skim milk ho re ceives pays for all labor. Ho feeds ensilago the year round, pasture in its season, and grain about seven months in tho year; tho grain being barley, oats and corn in equal quantities, tho whole being ground together. This composition is mixed half and half with bran, aud oaoh oow is given a peck measure full twico a day. Tho cows have all tho fresh, clean water they care to drink, which is given them in tho barn. A separator, he finds, is ono of tho best investments a dairyman can make, claiming that it will pay to buy ono if only six or sevon good cows arc kept.—New York Witness. V BLANKETS FOB HOUSES. Tho horso stablo should bo so built that its occupants will be comfortably warm at all times in winter, and cool in summer. Stabla blankets should not bo required ou even the coldest days, as tho closing of tho ventilators during tho severest storms should keep in sufficient heat. But it is cruelty to take o horse out of a warm stablo into freezing winds, aud neither blanket him nor permit him to keep himself warm by the rapid exercise which he naturally desires. When ever a horso has to stand still outdoors in winter weather ho should be closely blankoted. Wool is the test material for blank ets, thiu in summer, thick i i winter, but it is often desirable to have some cotton or linen threads one way of the i fabric, to prevent tearing nnd shrink mg. ! The btaaket should bv tiUed to the size and the form of the horse, and should have sufficient straps to keep it oloso and snug to his body which will prevent it sliding to the ground on one side to bo trampled fand torn, nstead of protecting the horse. A rubber or oil eloth rain blanket should cover tho woolen one in oold wet weather, and be worn alone in tho warmer rains both winter and summer. Both blankets are useful during win ter storms, for horses which are in motion, adding an extra woolen blan ket whenever the horse has to stand still. . In summer linen or cotton blankets may bo worn to keep off the flies and sun, though leather or linen nets are generally the best protection. Whenever a horso has to stand still after rapid exercise he should be blan keted to prevent chilling, whether profusely sweating or merely warm. Though most horses aro hardier than men both aro subject to many of the same diseases upon exposure, and both require extra protection against severe or changeable weather. The man will generally take care of himself, but the horso usually can not do so, unaided. Whenever a man needs extra exercise or wrap 3 to keep warm, his horse needs extra protection.—Farm, Field and Fireside. BEBBY BULLETIN, On an acre of rich, well cultivated land there may bo grown five hundred dollars' worth of berries, says M. A. Thayer, Sparta, Wis. Every enter prising farmer, with a little effort, has within his reach a continuous sup ply of healthful fruits. On every farm large, luscious berries may be grown at the rate of two hundred bushels per acre. If less is produced, we may look for tho following causes, and briefly suggest a remedy: First, land defloient in fertilizer, or plant food. Apply fino composted manure, plow undor and top dress. Also ashes broadoast. Second, improper preparation of soil. Plow deeply and harrow until fine, light and mellow. Extra prep aration makes plant food moro avail able. Third, varities not ndapted to your soil and climate. Use only such as has been well tested in your locality, or recommended by responsible par ties. Fourth, poor plants. Buy only best hardy, vigorous plants from re sponsible growors. Nover sot poor plants. Fifth, careless sotting of plants. Nover expose plants to sun and wind beforo setting. Have roots well spread, and tine dirt firm about them. Sixth, too many plants, in hill or row. Freservo only strong, vigorous plants, give each room to develop and perfect its fruit. Prune soverely. Seventh, imperfect fertilization. There is sex in plants. Pistilates (fe male) must havo staminates set with them to insure good crops. Eighth, noglect in cultivation. The ground at all times should bo fine, mellow and free from weeds. Ninth, no protection. Muoh in sum mer with coarso manure, grass or greon clover, in winter by a suitable protection against extreme cold. In tho Northwest, laying bush borries down and covering with dirt. Tonth, frost and drouth. Tho most diflicult to overcome. Borry fields well cultivated aro several degrees warmer than uncultivated fields, there fore, les3 liablo to damage by frost. Retain mulching as lato as possible on strawberries in spring. Damage by ordinary drongths may bo prevented by summer mulch and frequent cultivation and heavy mulch ing. FARM AN'D GARDEN NOTES. Tho grooming of horses is second only to diot in importance. Gluten moal is a valuablo food for horses while doing spring work. In genoral, level culture is best. Tho modern cultivators and harrows make cultivation easy. Give a colt plenty of opportunity to exercise and ho will grow faster and mako a better horso when matured. Our cultivated crops should be al lowed in orchards early in tho season. Grain and hay should never be grown. Bono dust and hardwood ashes, though good fertilizers for clay soil, havo proved of no benefit to deep black prairio sail. Trees, espeoially apples, are often trained too high, because of tho diffi culty of working close to them. Mod ern tools will bring the heads within reach. Moisture is retained in tho upper soil by very frequent but shallow till age, by means of which tho surface cf the land becomes a mulch for the soil beneath. Tillage should not exist for tho pur pose of killing weeds. Weeds havo taught tho most important lessons iu agriculture, to be sure, but the school master should now bo able to retire. Tho Agricultural Department has is sued a bulletin on the culture, proper ties, and uses of sweet cassava, which is found in the Southern pen insula of Florida and well up to tho frost belt. Fall plowing may bo advisable for farm crops, but it should generally be discouraged in orchards. Tho land in orchards should be left compact in tho fall, and it is advisablo to cover it with some close herbago. Salt may bo beneficial to an old as paragus bed in some cases, but gener ally there is little or no effect. Being a salt-water plant asparagus can stand almost any amount of salt without in jury, yet it shows no partiality for it. Late cultivation may be injurious by inducing a lato growth. At all events it can bo of small utility whou tho tree begins to mature and rains become frequent. This season of re spite gives tho grower tho opportunity of raising a greoa manure, and of adding fertility to his land at trifling expense and with uotam to his tree* from her Experience, After years of practical use and a trial of many brands of baking pow der (some of which she recommended before becomlffg acquainted with the great qualities of the Royal), Marion Harland finds the Royal Baking Powder to be greatly superior to all similar prepara tions, and states that she uses it exclusively, and deems it an act of justice and a pleasure to recommend It unqualifiedly to American Housewives. The testimony of this gifted authority upon Household Economy coincides with that of millions of housekeepers, many of whom speak from knowledge obtained from a continuous use of Royal Baking Powder for a third of a century.

No better proof could be found of the wonderful advance which has been made in the art of instantaneous pho tography than a competition which has just been arranged in Genova be tween members of leading camera clubs and photographic societies of Switzerland, France, Austria and England. The subject proposed for the competition is the determination by photography of tho shape assumed by a drop of water while in the act of falling through the air. A series of prizes in the form of medals is offered for the mo st success ful photographs. It is reqnired that only distilled water rhnll bo used; that the size of tho tube from which tho drop is 4 caused to fall shall bo ac curately ascertained. Moreover, it is required that it shall bo known how far the drop has fallen at tho instant it is iilioto graphed; and that effectivo precau tions shall be taken to prevent any current of air from disturbing the drop in its descent. Only a few years ago it would have seemed chimerical to proposo such a photographic feat as this, but now that running horses, leaping athletes, flying bullets and lightning havo been compelled to print their images on tho sensitive plate, it appears an easy thing to photograph fulling water so perfectly that science may thereby learn, for the first time, precisely, tho shapo of a raindrop—The Amusing Journal. fON THE ROAD i to recovery, the young woman who is ' taking Doctor Pierce's Favorite Pre scription.
