The Very Earliest HOUR.
i The earliest certain trace in Greolc literature of the rose as a cultivated flower is to bo found in Herodotus, in his account of the riso of the House Macedonia. The sons of Teraenus, e says (Bk. yiii., 138.) fled into an other part of Macedonia, and took up their abode "near the Gardens of Midas. In these gardens there are Iroses which grow of themselves"— that is, we suppose, without much at tention to pruning or budding—"so sweet that no other can vie with them 'in this; and their blossoms have a? many as sixty petals apiece." Every rose grower will at onco rec ognize in this the most venerable of all rose records, the original rosa cen tifedia, still, more than two thousand years afterward, one of tlio sweetest in many an old English garden—the old rrorenoe or Cabbago Ilose. And it is a curious illustration of Herod otus's accuracy in unsuspected details, that Pliny describes the same roso as found principally in much the samo district, in the neighborhood of Pliil lppi, the people of which, ho says, get it from tlio neighboring Mount Pan gaeus, and greatly improve it by trans plantation. In the |long history of roses, the Provence or Hundred-leaved Hose seems chiefly to havo formed the backbone of continuity.—Quarterly lieview. A Prehistoric liurial Mound.

Northern fruit growers know that the color of fruit is largely dependent on tho amount of available potash which the soil contains. This with (-untight aids in tho development of both color and fine flavor. A Cali fornia orange grower, Mr. G. W. Prescott, has found that iron hight enod the color of his product and made it more salable. His oranges were originally very pale, but by using five pounds of iron fillings around his trees the color has been changed to a dark yellow, with in creased quality of fruit. So much iron tilings probably inado the soil nure open and porous. If the iron served as plant food a small quantity would havo been suflicient.—Boston Cultivator. CUTTING TIMBER. For strength, beauty and durability I havo found August, September and October the best, and February, March and April the worst monthsto cut wood. A rod maple cut in September will keep in a round log perfectly whito and sound until the next August; while one cut in March will begin to blacken and decay by tho raiddlo or last of June. This is not copied from auy scientific work, but is what I havo found to bo a fact by many practical tests, says a writer in an English pa per. Gray birch out in September will keep in a good condition until tho next September, if loft in the woods cut in four foot lengths; while if cut iu March and left in the same way it will be nearly worthless by August 1— at leitßt, such is the result on my land. White pino, liko red maple, keeps white much longer if cut iu Septem ber then if cut in March, and is not injured by the worms so much. I have found that wood dried slowly in a low, cool place is better than dried quickly in the hot sun, even though cut iu summer. May this not, inn measure, account for wood being bet ter cut in autumn, it having the cold winter to dry in? IMPROVING THE FLAVOR OF BUTTER. Professor H. C. Conn, says Food and Sanitation, has for the past two years been experimenting in the direction cf discovering and cultivat ing the proper bacteria for improving the flavor of butter, and recently ex periments have beeu made by him in the production of creamery butter. As a result of Mieli experiments, it is now stated that Professor Conu has discovered a species of bacterium to which he has applied the insignificant name of "Jsacillus No. 41," and which : has given the most promising results i as an organism for the artificial ripen- i ing of cream in butter making. These experiments, as carried on by him i were thoroughly satisfactory, and were made in the following manner: : One-half a pint of milk was sterilized, by incessant steaming, during a period : of three or four days. Then this i bacillus No. 41, which had been cul tivated in tho bacteriological labora tory of Wesleyan University, was | inoculated into the milk, and for two , days was allowed to develop. The i large creamery at Cromwell, Conn., , was then visited, and six to eight quarts of cream were put into a metal i vessel and "pasteurized." Tho cream was then heated to 158 degrees Fall., i and left for ten minutes. Tho vessol was removed and cooled quickly by , means of cold water, and when the temperature had dropped to eighty degrees bacillus No. 41 was pouied in ami the mixture stirred thoroughly. Tho vessel was then covered and put 1 into the ripening room. After acouple of days tho cream was churned, and tho buttermilk remaining was set aside for iuture use. These six quarts were ripened for the purpose of increasing the number of bacteria, aud securing a strong culture for use in the large cream vat of the creamery. Tho buttermilk was then inoculated into the day's cream supply, aud this cream allowed to ripen in regular time, at a warm temperature, and churned as usual, Before churning a quantity was set asido to use for inoc ulation in the next day's supply, and in this manner continued indefinitely. The effcct"was always uniform. Tho first six quarts of cream produced moderately good butter, but not quite of the flavor wautod. Tho first large churning was a trifle better, and each day's product was an improvement. A delicate flavor also devolopod, which beenied to deteriorate after two or three weeks. This deterioration was remedied by a fresh inoculation from tho laboratory. Two vats of cream, frorit which Juuo butter was made, were taken. Ono quuntity was inocu lated, and the other was not. Tho butter produced by each was of high quality, but that which had been in oculated with bacillus No. 41 had an aroma stronger and moro pleasant than that without. It was also su perior both in tinto and odor. Ono lot was sent to a Mr. lieck, in Massa chusetts, who makes the highest grado of butter, aud who commands a very high price in the Boston market. Mr. Beck used tho culture and reported a decided improvement. It is the pur pose of Professor Conn to introduce this inoculation process iu all the large creameries in tho United States within the next year. THE CAWS AND (TliTl'ni! OF BRE3. "I cannot understand why more wo men do not take up bee culture us a business," said an old farmer, who has kept bees all his life, "l'here may not be a fortune in it, uml probably is not, by itself, but iu oonueotiou with floriculture, poultry and kindred pur suits, it is an ideal occupation. Bee culture hus become so improved aud simplified bj modern research anil iu volition that it is easy to understand, and is a must fascinating ami health ful business. It is heareely worth while to roly too much on directions l(ivcu in catalogues aud bee books, (or they only cuutber the business witli too many apphunees. According to <>t tU«>D dcAltrn, i* ueoo»mij to hare an elaborates and expensive outfit representing an investment much larger than most beginners feel willing to mako. "As a matter of fact, one may start in the bee business at a oost inside of a ten-dollar note. It is much better to begin in this way and increase the plant as one gets experience. "A couple of two-story Langstroth hives—and, by the way, there is no patent or royalty of any sort on the hive designed by this patriarch of beo culture, and any one moy mako it who knows how—to begin with. It is a good plan to buy one hive ready made, and then, if one has facilities and ingenuity, make others like it. "There are factories where nil the pieces that enter into tho construc tion of a hivo are sawed to measure, and'fit accurately. These are done up in crates holding fivo hives, and may be shipped to any part of the country. "From the picture of a hivo any one with moderate skill may set the hive up and nail it, making it quite as good as thoso that are far more expensive. These hives cost less than a dollar apieco if bought in crates of five. It is H good plan, which has been followed with success, for two or throe iiersons to order hives together. Three peo ple order two orates and divide them equally, tho expenso being but littlo. "It is well to start in with a couplo of small colonies of bees. What is known to tho bee trade as n two-framo nucleus and queen is sufficient. This may bo purchased at auy timo early in the season and put out on tho lawn, and, if carefully watched and guarded from accident, one may, by a littlo management, have throe or four col onies by autumn. It is a good idea to ask the bee merchaut to olip tho queen's wing before shipping her, as the novice might not be ablo to do this without danger of injuring her imperial majesty, and upon her good condition tho prosperity and profit of tho plant depend. "When there is an abuadanco of nectar in the flowers the beos will work industriously, anil the queen will fill the hive with eggs, and the brood will flourish in all stages. It is amazing how r-ipidly a colony will increase it the queen is good and the food abun dant. After a time, when the hive gets full, queen cells will bo formed and new queens will hatch out. Then a swarm may leave the hive, which will be qnito a loss unless they are care fully watched. To avoid this, one may prepare a box just large enough to hold a couple of frames. Lift out the frame containing tho quceu cell, taking care not to bring out the orig inal queen with it, as she walks all about the frames and one may find her almost anywhere. The frame contain ing the queen cell should bo put into a box witli two or three others and a few bees, and may bo covered by wiro netting or putin a hivo that may bo tightly closod, allowing, ot course, suf ficient ventilation through wire screened openings, with which most hives are provided. After being closed in for a couple of days, tho bees will get accustomed to their new location and will carefully guard tho queen cell, as upon this depends tho futuro of the colony. When tho queen is full Brown she emerges from the cell, and should then bo given liberty to fly about to seek a mate. As soon as she has established herself in hew now home and iB laying freely, it is well to clip one wing, in order that she may not take French lcaro and carry her train with her. "A queeu and two-framo nnoleus can be bought for from $2.50 to $3.50.' This, with a few frames, a couple of hivec, and Dome boxes that almost any one can make out of material on hand, with a good smoker to quiet the beos when it is nocessary to handle them, is sufficient outfit for ft beginner.— New York Ledger. FARM AND GARDEN NOTES. Every farmer should keep books, And set down all the items of receipts and expenses. Sheep will eat n great many plants which catt'e reject, and they grazo close to tho ground. Young and tender weeds are delica cies to sheep, and they, therefore, as sist in ridding tho fields of such pests. Every farmer should have a few sheep in order to save much of tho material grown that would bo wasted. A small iloek of mutton sheep should be kopt, if for no other pur pose than to supply the family with choieo meat. Whole outs aro not tho best feed for hens that aro laying. They are not conceutratod enough, and wheat, which contains much the same elements of food as does tho grain of the oat, is much better. For young chicks thore is no better food than ground oats sifted so as to take out tho coarser ohaff, and make it into a cake. This will be eaten readily, and it will mako tho young fowls grow thriftily, even while pro ducing feathers, which is always the most critical period of their growth. Farmers do not havo that knowl edge of their afl'uirs that thoy should, as many of them keep no books. When the census is being taken thoy cau give but littlo information in re gard to tho number of bushels of grain grown each year or the value of their live stock, lieneo much must be de rived from estimates rather than from | facts presented. There aro many old postures which i can be much improved by harrowing 1 with a forty tooth drag that will cut | into the surface soil. This will admit air t<> places covered by moss, and en ! nliie the grass to grow more vigorous -1 ly, (if course some of the rootiof the ! gruM will be destroyed; but tho stir | ring* of the soil will make more grow |in their places. If there is much moss lon the Mirfncu It will require tiudef I draining to remove surplus water tc make a permanent improvement. Maurice Thompson, the essayist, has Kiel mtllt'tusike.

The girls of one of our Eastern col legos have a novel method of enndy rnaking, which deserves to bo known outside their magio cirole —especially as tho results are particularly de lioious. They take a sheet of heavy glazed writing paper and turn up tho four edges to a depth of about three-fourths of nn inch. Into this box they pour a cupful of white sugar and a very little wntor, and sot on the top of the stove. Ono would think tho paper would burn, but it does not. The sugar boils up charmingly and looks tempt ing enough in its dainty receptacle. When- it is nearly done a drop or two of flavoring is added, or just be fore taking from tho fire some nut meats are strewn over its surfaoo. It is thon taken ort tho stove and set to float in its paper box in a bowl or basin of cold water. When cold it should bo brittle and then the paper can bo peeled off, and a dainty square of toothsome candy is the reward. It is groat fun to make, and will sur pnso your friends if they chance to 3ee it boiling in its paper box.—St. Louis Star-Sayings. KEETINO FRUIT. All farmers' cellars are supposed to be stocked with a supply of canned fruit, jellies, etc., but the task of fill ing these shelves and closets with good things is sometimes a heavy burden. Grango Homes very sensibly remarks: It is well to consider wherein last year's canning work was successful or the contrary. If anything failod to keep, you should suroly have learned why, for nobody nowadays is so fool ish as to believe in luok. There was a reason—either cold liardonod rub bers, incomplete sealing, exposure to tho drafts that cracked tho jars, or possibly they were not filled to tho brim aud air romaiuod after sealing. If you are not propared to bo success ful, do not attempt canning at all. It is better to All a fow jars carefully and be sure of them than to attempt moro just because the fruit is spoil ing. Make a mental balance between time, strength and sugar on one side and the surplus of fruit on the othor. It may bo economy to let the fruit waste or to givo it away. Tho pleas nntest way to put up fruit is in a few jars at a time, so that proper care bo given to do it right; this does not make too great an addition to tho regular work. It doesn't always happen that ono can do that wcy. Twenty or thirty quarts of berries oome into the house unexpectedly, or the pears and tomatoes ripen all at once, aud thou is when discretion should oome in also. Tho merits of drying, or evaporat ing, as it is now called, should be con sidered. Apples, pears, berries aud pumpkins aro easily dried in a kitchen evaporator. As tho process is rapid and clean tho dried fruit should bo cooked in tho same water in which it is soaked ; iu this way flavors are pro served aud the product equal to canned fruit. The old-fashioned method in which fruit aud flies sunoed pro miscuously for days together is not to bo thought of in theso rnoro fastidious times. —Farm, Field aud Fireside. RECIPES.

The German workman's task is, however, just as exacting as that of his trans atlantic contemporary, tfTo must, if he would koep up his bodily strength, have as much nutriment, even if it is of a coarser nature. The demand ex isting, therefore, tho supply has been found. It is horseflesh. "In Germany," the Consul reports, "the prejudice against horse meat is fast dirappearing. The workman lits found that for seven cents n pound ho can procuro a food excellent in every particular, and as the knowledge grows, the demand for horseflesh grows with it. But it is beginning to be difficult to keep tho supply up to the demand. "Formerly tho German butoher procured horses which were either worn out or injured so as to be useless for working purposes for from $5 to $lO each. Tho supply of horees of this character has been well nigh ex hausted, however, and he must now pay from $35 to SSO for his horses. Tho consequence is,that just as people have become attracted to horse meat because of its exceeding cheapness in comparison with beef, the butcher finds he must increnso prices." Consul Tingo says that the meat is used ia Germany saltod, smoked and fresh. He suggests that shipments from America bo made "on the hoof," for in that way horses are admitted at a tariff of $4.75 a head, and doubt about tho purity of the meat is avoided. He says the German butchers pay $35 a head ior worn out horses, and that fresh American horses would be worth more. However, if but S3O a head was received for live American horses, he says there would be a profit in tho shipmeot, because, allowing $4.75 for duty and $2 for transporta tion, it would leave $25.25 to the pro ducer of the animal in America.—Chi cago Times-Herald.

It could be pro pelled on land by means of its own engines, and was intended for the traffic on two lakes close to Boras, which were separated by a strip ot land. Rails were laid between the two lakes, and the steamer was to run itself across irom one lake to the other. When tried at the works, the vessel fulfilled the tests very well. The engine was of ten horso pc wer, and the boat could accommodate 6ome sixty passengers. Another original craft was the steamship Louvre, built at Nantes, in France, about threo years ago. She was the first ocean vessel provided with two central propellers, which wcro placed underneath the middle of the hull, instead of at the stern.
