Irving and Hi* Wife— HICAGO theater goers have seen "The Pulse of New r York" and other j plays bearing ana tomical titles; but it was not until / : A. I , Sunday afternoon \Js that they were « » ~ given a glimpse of ®-JËJL=ËbïA "The Heart of Chi cago," when they found it in a normal condition. "The Heart of Chicago" is the latest play from the pen of Lincoln J. Carter, and it began its pulsations on Sunday. The piece is,'like Mr. Carter's others, melo dramatl# in tone, and is, to a certain extent, original in plot and scenic em betltshment, illustrative of the fact that the author has not lost his cunning in devising novel and striking mechanical effects, and that he is one of the best stage producers in this country. The play opens with a dissolution of a firm and a quarrel between the members on the night of the great fire. As the fire began on a Sunday night, it is not ex plaified'why the firm, was doing busi ness, blit it affords an opportunity for traduction of three very effective and realistic views of that memorable night In October, 1871.

Wphout a doubt, "The Heart of Chica go" is the best piece Mr. Carter has contributed to the stage. The Btory, even if a little complicated, is told in ftn Interesting and intelligent manner, and is well connected after the first act. Be situations and climaxes are »»ought about In a natural way, and gMroused the enthusasm of yesterday's «rowda. In the line of scenic and me çhanieal effects the author has certain 8f done himself proud, the railway ef fect alone entitling him to great credit. * This is something never before intro 3 4lt»ced on a stage.

It was the biggest Sunday of the season at the Lincoln, and there was an excuse for the happiness of Manager Hutton and Mr. Carter.—Chicago Record. * Irving and His Wife. One explanation of Sir Henry Irv ing's long separation from bis wife Is this; 'Irving married when he was very young and very poor. He was a Junior member of a traveling company, ami It was not until his marriage knot had been firmly tied that he discovered how averse to the stage hts wife was. She never lost an opportunity to run down the profession, and she made a practice of telling her husband that he would better turn to some other pro fession before it was too late, for he could never malte an actor. This sort of thing lasted for several years, and finally the Irvings agreed to live apart. John Toole's brother, a great chum of Irving, meanwhile had tried to bring husband and wife together again. The reconciliation took place on the day of the first performance of "The Bells," Mrs. Irving magnanimously agreed to waive her objections to the theater for once and to witness her husband's per fomance. It was one of the greatest triumphs ever scored in a London thea ter. It made Irving in a night. Direct ly after the performance, flushed and elated by his triumph, Irving hurried to his wife's rooms. She was sitting up waiting for him. 'Well,' he exclaim ed, with the enthusiasn^of a school boy. 'what did you think of me to-night?' 'What did I think?' remarked his wife, in a withering tone. T thought I had never seen you act so foolish before.' Without another word Irving turned on his heel and left the house, in 1868. Irving has with his wife since. That never but was lived it Is worth noting that two days after the actor was knighted by the queen, his wife's visiting cards read 'Lady Irving.' " Began in the Chorus. Annie B.

MATTERS OF INTEREST TO AGRICULTURISTS. a Some Up-to-date Hints About Cultiva tion of the Soil and Yield* Thereof —Horticulture. Viticulture and Flori culture. In Beal the nently tilizer the ing sult, al plies ence ured, ured tion out ure. due tion HE Oregon experi ment station sends out the following advice to orchard ists as to work for this and following ' E ;'4 m V months: September—Give last spraying for codling moth to Baldwins and other late varieties this results he thor distribution of month. To insure good every spraying must ough, and an even the poison over this fruit must be re ceived. Some orchardists go so far as to spray every ten or twelve days dur ing the sumiper for the codling moth. Such energy is very commendable, and probably brings better returns than fewer sprayings, albeit the labor and expense is muck greater. Before rains begin, burn all rubbish about orchards and about the farm generally, in coi ners, along fence rows, that no good place be left for insects to hibernate in. Do not pile green cord weod along side of orchard; you are likely to there by bring into the vicinity of your fruit trees pests which, if left in the foreBt, would not injure you. October — Put away spray pump after last spraying and all spra. lng machinery, tanks, etc., in good order, thoroughly clean and free from any corroding substance. November—Buy good books on fruit pests and diseases of fruit trees and lay out a course of reading which will help you the coming season. You will want to look over your file of Experiment Station Bulletins. You have no doubt carefully put them away, as they have been received from time to time. If any member of your family, or if you have taken time to collect specimens of pests and insects generally, it is good time with the literature you have to become familiar with their appear er; an to B ance and habits. December—Before the last of Decem ber you have probably, having first re ceived price lists from reliable firms, made arrangements for purchasing a spray pump if you need one, and have obtained lye, sulphur, quick lime, salt, blue vitriol, paris green, or london pur ple, and any and all insecticides which you will need for winter and spring use. Be careful to get good paris green. A good quality of this poison should mix readily with water and form a mass of the consistency of cream, fact, this is the way we have always mixed it in spraying. First mix it with a small quantity of water, and then pour it into the larger quantity of liquid. in A Horticultural Di*cu**ion. J. W. Clark, professor of horticulture in the Missouri State Agricultural col lege. was called on at an institute to discuss fruit-growing. Being asked to list of the best apples to plant, Select such varieties as bear As a rule, name a he said: well, look well, and sell well, kinds that do well in the east are not good in the west Ben Davis, Wine Sap, Jonathan, Smith's Cider, and Rome Beauty are all good, but may not all do well in a particular locality. We must plant such as are adapted to our soil and location. Q.—Tell us how to grow an orchard. A.—Take any good corn land, pre it as for a crop of corn; get good pare two-year-old trees from the nearest home nursery; plant 25 or 30 feet apart; cultivate the laud in corn or some hoed crop 1/ the land Is rich, until the into bearing; then let the trees come orchard occupy the ground alone, but continue the cultivation of the land as long as apples are wanted, in the spring or fall. If in the fall, must see to it in the spring that the hole in the soil by the trunk, caused by the wind swaying the tree, is not al lowed to remain. q.— How can the insects troublesome to the apple be overcome? A.—The round-headed borer can be kept from the trees by placing a cylin der of wire netting around the base of each tree. The damage done by the larvae of the codling moth can be less ened by spraying the trees just after the blossoms fall, with a solution of paris green, one pound of the green to two hundred gallons of water. A sec ond, and if heavy rains come, a third, spraying should be given before the weight of the apple bends the blossom end downward. No spraying should be done before the blossoms fall, for fear If too Set either to to the Bhe de for re Her only that of of poisoning bees and honey, strong a solution of paris green is used, it will kill the foliage. Q.—When is the time to prune trees? A.—If to make a tree grow, prune while it is dormant. Pruning when the tree is growing will check growth. When setting out trees, cut back the top to balance the roots. a says, play Wil aro Rose John and Seed Wheat in Ohio. ijury Comparatively little of this year's wheat crop in Ohio was threshed or housed before the rains set in. and in consequence the grain, which was poor in quality to begin with, has been- fur ther injured by sprouting in the shock, says a bulletin of the Ohio experiment station. The station is making germin ation tests, both with wheat grown on the station farm and with samples sent In from other parts of the state. In one of these tests a compari madc between wheat of this which has stood in the son was year's crop, shock throughout the wet spell, and similar lots of grain grown in 1895,1894 and 1893. The wheat was planted in carefully prepared garden soil Aug. 17, and warm, showery weather followed. Within five days 80 per cent of the seed of this year had ger minated and was growing nicely, and three days later 3 per cent more had appeared above ground. The old wheat all started a little more quickly than the new, and Just 80 per cent of that planted was above ground on the fifth day; only one more plant had appeared on the eighth day, the percentage of germination on that day being 81 for the wheat of 1893, 79 for 1894, 81 for 1895 and 83 for 1896. Apparently, there fore, it is safe to use wheat of this year's growth for seed, except where the condition is exceptionally bad; but on Is pub his can be in the bis in view of the lees v'go.'ous growt-i shown at first in this test the station would advise the use of a larger quan tity of seed than ordinary, be observed that this test under exceptionally favorable condi tions, and in unfavorable weather it would be reasonable to expect that a larger proportien of the seed would fail to grow. be It should j cas made to to or As IUrnyard Manure. In a farmers' bulletin issued by the Department of Agriculture. Prcf. W. H. Beal cays that barnyard manure is probably the most efficient means at the disposal of the farmer to perma nently Improve his soil. No other fer tilizer possesses to so great a degree the power of restoring worn soils to productiveness and giving them last ing fertility. It accomplishes this re sult, however, not so much by the actu al fertilizing constituents which it sup plies as by improving the physical properties of the soil, increasing the amount of humus, which is generally deficient in worn soils, Improving its texture and increasing its water ab sorbing and water holding power. Ex periments have shown that the Influ ence of manure may be perceptible twenty years after application, serrations at Rothamstcd, England, during forty years on barley unntan ured, manured continuously, and man ured during the first twenty years, only showed that there was gradual exhaus tion and reduction of produce with out manure, and gradual accumu lation and increase of produce with the annual application of barnyard man ure. But when the application was stopped, although the effect of the resi due from the previous applications was very marked, it somewhat rapidly di minished, notwithstanding that calcu lation showed an enormous accumula tion of nitrogen as well as other con stituents. in to on rii Æ Ob f Fowl*. I believe in thoroughbred poultry; believe that thoroughbred fowls will generally give better returns for food and care bestowed than common fowls, writes Fanny Field in American Farm er; but for all that whenever I read an article wherein farmers are told em phatically that it does not pay to keep common fowls r.n:l are advised to kill them right off and stock up with thor oughbreds. it makes me mad all over. Common fowls do pay; even when left to shift for themselves they will aver age a clear profit of fifty certs a year per head. Now what would you do If you were so liant up for ready money you could not afford to buy even one pair of thoroughbred fowls? I would do exactly as another woman did. She took such excellent care of such com mon hens as she could get that they laid all winter when the price of eggs was way up, and from that egg money she saved enough by spring to buy a pair of thoroughbred fowls. Then she killed all her common roosters and watched out and eel all the eggs from her thoroughbred hen and in the fall she had thirty-seven chit kens from the eggs of that hen. "Go thou and do like wise." B a a it in Treatment «f S«»«»tl Wheal for Smut. Bulletin Cl of the Ohio Experiment Station reports the lesults of a series of experiments made on the station farm at Wooster in 1895 in the treatment of oats for the prevention of smut, in «hieb it was shown tha; from duplicate samples of seed, taken from the same sack, ihe untreated seid produced as high as 40 per cent of smutted heads, while the treated Feed produced a con siderably larger crop entirely free from smut. These experiments have been repeated with the same result in 1.896.a year when the smut of oats has been exceptionally prevalent. It haB also been demonstrated that, with a very slight modification, the-same treatment will absolutely prevent the stinking smut of wheat, and the bulletin named gives full directions for this treatment, both for oats and wheat. From the re ports which have come to the station it seems probable that the farmers of Ohio have this year lost not less than half a million dollars from oats smut alone. as the by al be of the of to sec the be fear too Eating Apples at Night.—Dr. Searls says "Everybody ought to know that the very best thing he can do is to eat ap ples just before going to bed. The apple has remarkably efficacious medicinal properties. It is an excellent brain food, because it has more phosphoric acid in easily digested shape than oilier fruits. It excites the action of the liver, pro motes sound and healthy sleep, and thoroughly disinfectB the mouth.

In a paper read before the Wisconsin slate convention, Mr. N. E.

They ask, W'hat is this dis ease? Is it contagious? Has any state a foul brood law? brood is a very fatal and contagious disease, doing its work by killing the bees in the grub or worm stage of life. As it takes onlv a few days from the 1 °<** , j the and (he I of It egg to the hatched bee. you can sco how short a time it would take to de stroy the colony after once exposed. This dreaded disease became serious in Canada so that the industry seemed doomed; those wide-awalte neighbors and members of the Ontario Bee-Keep ers' Association could not be content to give up EO valuable an industry, and on April 7, 1S90, had a law passed pro lding for an inspector, and heavy fines to any one to sell or expose any Wm. rii sealed bees or appliances. McEvoy, as inspector, has so carefully and thoroughly done his duty that the disease can scarcely be found. I am often asked, "How near is the disease *.o my beeyard? 1 * As long as the disease Æ in this country, and no law to con trol it with our mail service carrying bees and supplies, I consider we are all in danger. A bee-keeper told me Ire wanted a choice Italian queen, so sent to one of our eastern states for it. The queen with a few bees came, and were introduced with the cage as instructed. He felt proud of his pretty queen, and after a time he opened the hite to find by some means the colony had foul brood. Not being the honey harvest season, the disease spread very fast, causing a loss of over 100 colonics. California, for several years, has had a foul brood law. and their inspector has done great good there, so that now that state is noted for her train loads of honey shipped to various places. Colorado also has a foul brood law. Last winter Illinois and Minnesota, and at the same time I, as Wisconsin dele gate, tried to get a foul brood law. Why did wo fail to get it? Simply be cause the bee-keepers of the state did not do their duty. How careful wc require by law a case of small-pox, or other contagious disease, to be quar antined and doctored. Likewise dis eases among farm stock. Why not have a similar law to protect our bees? If you want such a law, you can have it, if you will only ask for It. As dele gate to appear before our legislature last winter, I soon learned that very few members of cither house had been "ailed on by bee-keepers of their dis tricts, and did not know one thing about the disease, or whether they • not.

A horse that is difllcult to find, and that is in constant demand, is one that can be guaranteed to be safe for family use, says a writer in "Horse World." At any place where horse sales are held, one cannot but be im pressed by the large number of search after horses suitable for family use. For this purpose a horse must not only he sound and good looking, but he must be absolutely safe in the strictest sense of the word. He muBt be afraid of nothing, and must be possessed ol enough to behave under clrcum whtch to the average horse He must be one it: sense stances would mean a runaway*, safe for a woman to drive, and in many the woman will know little about cases driving and absolutely nothing abou; what should be done in case of an acci ln view of the dependency that dent. must necessarily be placed on the fam ily horse, It is not to be wondered at that horses suitable for that purpose are scarce, and also that they com mand a high price whenever they are offered.
