POTATO STARCH. All Industry Which Commends Itself to Northwestern Farmers. The amount of potato starch annually used in this country is very large and the quantity required is constantly in creasing. .It is used as an article of food by persons who can not obtain potatoes, by brewers and confectioners. It is employed for sizing new cotton cloth and to some extent for giving stiffness and a smooth surface to gar ments that have recently been washed. It is also used in connection with other articles for making a coating for the cloth covering for hams, shoulders, bacon and dried beef. A very large proportion of the potato starch used in the United States is imported from Germany and other countries on the continent of Europe. A recent inves tigation showed that about half a mill ion pounds of potato starch of foreign manufacture passed through the Chi cago custom-house nnder another name without the payment of duties. There appears to be no reason why all the potato starch used in tliis country can not be produced here. Germany pos sesses no special advantages for producing potatoes or for the man ufacture of starch. The extraction of starch from potatoes, and the drying and subsequent preparation of it are very simple processes. During the war with England in 1812 many families in this country manufactured the starch they used. The manufacture of starch from potatoes, conducted in farm houses, led to the construction of fact ories in New England at the close of the war. The introduction of railroads and the appearance of the Colorado potato beetle caused potatoes to become nigh in most portions of the New En gland States and resulted in closing up most of the old potato starch factories. The impoverishment of the soil in the sections longest settled resulted in re ducing the yield of the tubers from which the starch was made. At present the manufacture of potato starch in this country is limited almost entirely to Aroostook County, in the extreme northern portion of Maine. The yield of potatoes there is very large, as the soil is rich and the climate favorable to their production. Owing to the distance from large towns and the lack of cheap transportation, it is more profitable to make starch from the potatoes than to send them to market. The town of Presque Isle, Aroostook County, is the great center of the potato-starch industry. The larg est potato-starch factory in the world is located there. It works up about 320,000 bushels of potatoes annually. There are some twentv-five other factories in the vicinity. The cost of a building there for a factory of a capacity for working up 4,500 bushels of potatoes per day is from $1,500 to .$6,000. The cost of the machinery is from $1,500 to $2,000. Lumber, however, is very cheap, rough boards suitable for a starch factory sell ing for eight dollars per thousand. Farmers generally receive twenty cents per bushel for potatoes delivered at the factory. The bushel is sixty-three pounds. From this quantity of pota toes nine or ten pounds of dry starch are made. No value is attached to the pulp from which the starcli has been taken. Apparently the manufacture of starch from potatoes could be profitably in troduced into Minnesota or Dakota. The soil and climate are very favorable for the production of potatoes, while the cost of sending them to market is great. The raising of potatoes could be very advantageously carried on in connec tion with the production of wheat. Af ter the season for cutting grass and harvesting wheat there is abundant time for digging potatoes. It is much easier to raise potatoes on a large scale on a prairie where there are no stumps or stones than in a region where they are common. A good supply of nearly pure and quite cool water is necessary for the running of a potato-starch fac tory. It is much cheaper to operate it by steam than by water. Minnesota and Dakota appear to have all the nat ural requirements for the production of potato starch. With the low price of wheat, this neglected industry is worthy of examination.— Chicago Times. A Question. Was Jumbo an elejiliant? Rig and tall as he was, he hail not attained to his full size anil was expected td grow for three or four years to come. He had grown considerably since his ar rival in America. His food consisted of grain, bran, hay, vegetables, such as carrots or beet roots, etc., and of these articles he consumed be tween five hundred anti six hundred pounds per day. He drank about three barrels of water a tlay. In addition to his great size there wore several jie culiar physical features about Jumbo which excited much curiosity among naturalists, anil led some eminent scientists to express the opinion that lie was not an elephant at all, but that he was allied to the old anti now extinct mastodon species. In his back there was a deej) hollow, where, in other elephants, there was a large convex curve, and his head was curved in a marked manner where other elephants are hollow. His knees, too, were not in tlie same jilaee as are those of other elephants.

A Pathetic Story of a Young Soldier Who Served in Doth the Union and Confed erate Armies. The civil war was such a big thing, it lasted so long, and covered such a vast exjianse of territory, that it was an easy matter for a man to tight in both ar mies, and escape detection and punish ment as a deserter. A few months be fore Georgia seceded a bright young New Englander settled in one of our country towns. Ilis Northern birth caused him to be suspected, and on this account ho was jirobably more out spoken in the expression of secession sentiments than he would have been un der other circumstances. The State went out of the Union, the trouble com menced in earnest, and volunteer coin jmnics began to organize and go to the front.. Our New England friend felt that the pressure of public ouinion was too strong to be withstood. It was hard to light his own people, but if ho did not become a Confederate soldier, the people were liable in some hour of mad excitement to lynch him. So he donned a suit of gray and trudged off to Vir ginia with a musket on his shoulder. The unwilling volunteer stood camp life very well. He bore his part man fully in many a skirmish and battle, and in the course of time was made a lieu tenant. He came very near going through the war without a spot on his record, but iu a fatal moment he yielded to temptation and disgraced himself and his uniform. It was a cold wet day in April, 1865. The Lieutenant had become separated from his command on the march. He lost his wav and threw himself on the wet ground completely worn out. His physical weakness depressed his mind, and he gave himself up to a fit of de spondency. A flood of bitter thoughts rushed over him. Why should he, an alien, risk his life in defense of a people who hated him. Why should he strug gle on, he knew not how many years longer, lighting against his kinsmen and friends! Following an impulse which seomed irresistible, he rose to his feet and set his face in the direction of the Federal lines. Before nightfall ho was in the eaniji of the enemy. Tue poor fellow told his story ward with mournful pathos. H that hint after e said the Fédérais wanted to treat as a spy. When they refused to believe his tale of desertion he of fered to volunteer as a proof of his good faith. The otter was He got, into a found himself once more in active service. Two days later General Lee surrendered at Appomattox. In an other month the deserter was mustered out. accepted, blue uniform, and Tiie man was in a quandary. He dared not go back to his New England home The people there all knew that lie had been in the Confederate army. On the other hand he could not go to Georgia, where he would be denounced and despised as a deserter. He drifted to Boston, and there he narrowly taped getting into pi 'son. His tongue got him into tho trouble. He remarked to a ladv at his boarding-house that he would rather lie in an honored Confederate grave down in Dixie than own half of Boston. The lady was furious. She reported the con versation to the Provost Marshal, and that officer sent a file of men to march ♦J»« «Inserter to his office. The unfortu 68 nate man unbosomed himself to the Marshal, concealing nothing. He »<1 mitted using the language reported, and said that it reflected his state of mind. If he had held out against temptation two days longer, he could have returned to Georgia with a proud record as a tried and true Confederate. As it was he felt himself an outcast, with no country, no no comrades, nothing but a blasted character. The Provost n,an ' . .

It is a pity this English feature was not sent across to America years ago in place of the Eng lish sparrow brigade, which lias be come such a pest all over the north of the United States. Strange as it seems to an American, the pestiferous English sparrow is still beloved in his tive home, and right in the heart of Loudon are little abound in London also, idenee in Ely Place, half a mile from St. Paul's Cathedral, where the This is the It is a set of are a very na thousands of the Common birds. jugeons There is a res jugeons flock daily for food, which is given them by a bird-loving lady. The jugeons are public property, but they know their friend, and it is interesting to watch them while feeding from her hands. It seems as though there must be lions" of them (according to Colonel Sillers), and they fly around the lady, upon her shoulders and head, until they almost hide her from view. It is im possible for her to keep them out of tho sack containg the grain which she feeds hem; and often she has to lift them out by the armload. The feeding of tho pigeons at Ely Place has become so well known to Londoners that scores and sometimes hundreds of people assemble to witness it. The streets of London (except in the suburbs) are not cut up with car tracks, but in place of street cars they have kind of two-story omnibus—larger than the American omnibus, and not quite so wide as a street car. It will hold at least twenty inside. At the rear a winding stairway leads uj> to the roof, where there are seats to accommodate about fifteen or sixteen people, cupied by ladies as well as Two strong horses have no pulling this great load over the smoothly cemented thoroughfares. I find the same thing in Paris also, but here it is even larger than in London. The Ameri can rule of the highway: "Keep to the right," is sometimes reversed, and in England the song is then: "Ever to the left, boys; ever to the left." Hacks waiting for customers do not stand by the curb, but are drawn up in line in the middle of the widest streets, such as Holborn or High Holborn streets (pronounced "O'b'n" and "lob'n" by the Londoner), the Strand or Regent Street. In the center of the carriageway also are large ornamental gas-posts, protected from vehicles by posts set in at a radius of about four feet. These form a sort of oasis in the midst of the street, and make venient retreats for persons hemmed in by vehicles while attempting to the streets. In each of these midway oases is a policeman, whose duty it is to see that all vehicles going south keep one side and all going north on the other side of this dividing line.— Lon don Cor.

One of the latest new things is a screw-driver. Years ago a wise man said there were two things which even a Yankee could not improve ujion, and they were a screw-driver and a woman. But the Yankee has knocked the wise man's prophecy higher thanGilderoy so far as the screw-driver part of the proposition is concerned. With the old time sc ew-driver you felt around anti steadied yourself about five minutes and found something to brace against while trying to get the driver's blade in the notch of the screw. Then you smiled and gave a twist or two, when sli wont the tool, and your knuckles co lided with the Iu three or four t screw's head, minutes you succeeded in readjusting the implement, gave another twist or two to the handle, bei.iino over-confident, worked too easterly and bent the screw out of posi tion. After one or two more trials you got mad, flung the screw-driver into the coal-hod and took the hammer and ponndwd the blank thing in. But with the new screw-driver you do not do it that way. You put the blade of the driver in its jiroper place, steady your self, aod press down. The pressure on the handle revolves the driver, and the first thing you know the screw is home, and you are surprised to find it there without one break or a single cuss-word. A mechanical rig in the handle of the tool revolves the blade of the driver by pressure, and it can't get out of order. There should be one in every Christian household .—Chicago Herald. < DB.
