Selling by measurement is notahvays the most satisfactory method, but it is sometimes the most conveni ent. Seller' are disjuised to in sist that a cube of 7 feet is a ton. This is entirely too small and will not weigh out. How many cubic feet will make a ton dopouds ou so many conditions that no cer tain rule can be given. It de pends on the kind of hay, whether timothy, alfalfa, or prairie; ui 4he character of the hay, whether fino or coarse; on the condition in which it was put in the stack, the length of time it has been there, and particularly on the size, es IM'ciaMy the depth of the stack or mow. In a very large mow, well set tled, 400 cubic feet of alfalfa or timothy may average a ton, but on top of the mow or in a small stack it requires 500 to 512 cubic feet, some times even more. It is not safe for the buyer to figure on less than 500 cubic feet, but in a well tilled stack, in selling, it would be safer to weigh than to sell at that measurement. To find the number of tons iu a barn mow or hay shed, multiply the length, depth and breadth togeth er and divide by the number of cubic feet which, considering the quality of hay and condition in which it is put up, will make a ton. For long stacks or ricks multiply the length in yards and this by half the altitude in yards and divide the product by fifteen, and this should give the tonage. To, measure a cone shaped stack find the area of the base by mul tiplying the square of the cir cumference in feet by the deci mal .07958 and multiply the 'pro duct thus obtained by one-third of the height in feet and then di vide as before, cutting off five right hand figures. The correct ness of this will depend some what on the approximation of the stack to a regular cone, and if the stack bulges out it makes the product too small. The better way is to estimate the area of the stack up to the point of tapering in and apply the rule to the cone shaped top. The best way is to weigh. The experience of weigh mg a lew staciis will enable any one to judge quite correctly. Another approximate rule for measuring a round stack is this Select a place which is as near as possible to what the- averago size would be if the stack were of uni form diameter from the ground to the top of the point. Measure around this to get the circumfer ence. Add four ciphers to the circumference at the right and divide the whole by 3.155!) to get the diameter. Now multiply half the diameter by half the circum foreuce and the feet of the cir cumfereuce area are obtained. Multiply by the number of feet the stuck is high, and the solid or cubic feet iu the whole are ascer tained. Then divide by the num ber of feet in a ton, which ranges all the way from 370 to 512, ac cording to the fineness and com pactness of the hay. This will give the number of tons in the stack.

John C. Klauder, who died last week iu Philadelphia, was the original tin can mush man and made $2,000,000 iu the business. is It is reliably estimated that $1,000,000 was spent in New York for decorations during the Dew ey celebration. Miss Helen Gould, always noted for her patriotism, probably sjHmt more on decora tions than any other individual. The cost of decorating her house, both interior and exterior, footed up something like $3,000. Miss Gould had a Hag made of pure silk, 20-30, and it cost $000. A Western college professor claims that ho has discovered a method of fattening pigs by elec tricity. The process as near as can bo ascertained, consists of placing the animals to bo treat ed in a cago, around which are strunga number of wires charged with electricity. It is hoped tho professor will carry his investi gation farther, as many attenuat ed piioplo are interested in his theory. Al'TKU experimenting, the Chi cago woman has put her foot down on niiilo domestic, service, und when the Chicago woman puts her foot down on anything all resistance Is crushed out. The secret of success is con stancy of purpose. DLsrucli. Tho parent may think it bad form for the child to dip its bread in the gravy, but it will think it good taste. The difference between a musi cal director and a tramp is that the former only beats time while the latter kills it. A mail never feels that he really getting old until he has lost his desire to run to every fire in the neighborhood. It sometimes happens that tho girl whom men declare they could die for is just the sort of one they ouldn't live with. Tito woman who fills the lower pantry shelf with pies is the greatest "trust" in tho eyes of the small boy of the family. ino matter now loudly a man snores, he never acknowledges that he is sleeping; ho is only thinking with his eyes shut. From the horrible rapidity with which rent day comes around we are driven to the conclusion that Father Time is using an automo bilo. y. ciamor is oeing raised con corning the rights of men about to be hung. At present all they seem to have at that eriod are uprights. A New York man has just rais ed a mortgage from his house by speculating iu stocks. Many person has put one there by the same process. This thing of two souls with but a single thought is all right provided tho single thought is not a speculation as to how much the other is worth. Aguinaldo's efforts to have tho Filipino government reorganized by General Otis has again failed, Ho must come as plain Aguinaldo if he wants recognition. Tlio situation in Venezuela is critical, according to reports, but that is not unusual. The situ ation is always critical down there, when there is any situation at all. When a woman can translate tho French names on a bill of faro intoevery day mutton chops, hash, fried eggs, etc., she feels that her education has not been in vain. Can't some of our people bo en thused sufficiently to inaugurate some plan whereby additional in dustries would bo established in our town? With the coining of winter a man has tho joyous satisfaction of knowing where his neckties are to be found, as his shirt-waist wifo and children have no sjiocial use for them at this season. The fact that tho government has advertised lor bkl for 100, 000 pair of tan shoes for the army m the tropics indicate- that Uncle Sam thinks that the sol dier's feet should match his-complexion. A dispatch from the Klondike says that a woman miuer has dis- :overed $f.000 worth of gold iu one pocket. That'H nothing. Any woman van do tho sumo if her iusbaudbea sound sleeper and you give her time enough. Mrs. Henrietta Strader, of Stroudsburg, has brought suit against Monroe county for $10, 000 damage. Mrs. Strader rode off the end of a county bridge while on her bicycle, badly injur ing her back. The accident is claimed to have been due to the absence of guard rails. If the man who returns home at two o'clock a. m. and tells his wife a lot of things that did not hapin would only tell her what really occurred he would get off easier, us she doesn't believe him in either case, and tho actual is less apt to be overdrawn than tho ideal. If a woman were sent out to discover the North Pole there might be some chance of its being found. A man was never known yet who could find the handker chief or gloves his wifo sent him upstairs to get for her, let alone anything as obscure as this gla cial ueedled in tho haystack.
