A lawyer who recently died in New York city left instructions in his will that one-half of his fortune of $300, 000 should be devoted to establish ing and maintaining a "bread line" for the hungry of the city. Obsessed with the idea of perpetu ating his name, he stipulated that it should appear in raised letters each and every loaf of bread distrib uted by his agents to the poor and needy who might apply for aid. It is said that this man had often expressed the opinion that the only immortality of which the individual can be certain is in the perpetuation of his name and acts through be quests in one form or another to pos terity. Thus we can somewhat ac count lor his ambition to have his name so prominently associated with his good deed. While we would not belittle this man's philanthropy, which will un doubtedly prove a blessing to many a poor unfortunate, yet we cannot but regret his methods of gaining "immrrtallty" and contrast him with the tWo great men whose birth we celebrate this month—Washington and Lincoln. How undimmed is their renown after all these years, and yet without any self-laudation, or ad vertisement on their part. They gave themselves to their coun try and thus engraved their names on the hearts of their countrymen, and Immortalized themselves for all lime. Abraham Lincoln, one of the most colossal figures in all history, was the apostle of modesty and simplicity. An analysis of Lincoln's character shows that his marvelous career was due more to the moral qualities which everyone can cultivate than to any particular mental brilliancy or genius. Lincoln illustrates in a remarkable degree the power of common qualities, everyday virtues, in the making of manhood. His great horse-sense, his tenacity of purpose, his force of char acter, his keen sense of humor, and his power of self-expression; these were the foundations upon which he reared his great life structure. When we think of Lincoln we form a picture of a great, hearty, kindly, helpful, accommodating, sympathetic bouI, more than of a great intellectual genius. To this sort of a man the world builds its monuments. Pure genius without a heart which matches it; great brilliancy without the virtues which are common to humanity, or mere wealth without character does not live very long in a people's re gard. The world builds its monu ments to those who have sacrificed self to the public good; it builds no monuments to selfishness or greed, however brilliant. All through life Lincoln was true to the best, the higheBt that was in him. And so he never was, never could be, false to himself or to any man. "I am not bound to win," he said, "but I am bound to be true, I am bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have. I must stand with anybody that stauds right." A rich life is worth a thousand times more to the world than a rich bank account. Who would have thought of asking how much money Lincoln left? Yet, Is not the whole world richer for his life and exam ple? Lincoln's great ambition was to make the most he possibly could of himself. Who cannot have such an ambition? Who cannot succeed in it? A 8TUDY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, THE MAN. It has been said of Lincoln that he •■grew to a great mental stature and achieved his masterful grip upon the Intelligence of the world, not alone because he had extraordinary natural endowments, but because he had an insatiable interest in realities, and never allowed a book or a formula to obscure the sunlight of a living fact." A great many people are inclined to look upon Abraham Lincoln as a mar velous being, raised up for a divine purpose, and endowed with sublime attributes which are not bestowed upon ordinary mortals. Yet if we an alyze his character we find it made up of the humblest virtues, the most ordinary human qualities. It was his incorruptible manhood, his unswerving honesty, his love of truths, biB adherence to what he be lieved to be right In the face of all 1 emptations and difficulties, that, more than all else, made him the sublime character he was. Lincoln never shrank from espous ing an unpopular cause when he be lieved It to be right. At the time when it almost cost a young lawyer his bread and butter to defend the fugitive slave, and when other law yers had refused, Lincoln would al ways plead the cause of the uo fortunate whenever an opportunity presented. "Go to Lincoln," people would say, when these hounded fugi tives were seeking protection, "he's not afraid of any cause, if it's right." His fellow lawyers called him "per versely honest." Nothing could induce him to take the wrong side of a case, or to continue on that side after learn Improved Rural Schools. W. V. Hodges of the Unisad. States oureau of education says: "Letters re ceived reveal improvement everywhere in the schoole for country children. There is a feeling that the country child will be best educated for what ever life he may lead, whether in the city or in the country, If taught in terms of country life. The movement toward this is nationwide. Country school houses are used to some extent as civic centers In all states of the Union. No special feature ot rural ing that tt was unjust or hopeless. Only the most sublime moral courage could have sustained him as iiresldent to hold his ground against hostile criticism and a long train of disaster: to issue the emancipation proclama tion, to support Grant and Stanton against the clamor of the politicians and the press. Everybody who knew him felt that he was every inch a man, a large hearted, generous friend, always ready to help everybody out of their troubles, whether It was a poor widow in dis tress or a farmer who needed advice. He had a frank, transparent mind. He never covered up anything, never had secrets. He always left the door of his heart wide open, so that anyone could read his inmost thoughts. Abraham Lincoln inherited no op portunities, and acquired nothing by luck. His good fortune consisted sim ply of untiring perseverance and a right heart. Yet the romance and achievement of his marvelous life have no match in fiction or history. We shall search the biography of the world in vain for a man who reached such heights of power, and yet has graduated from such humble beginnings and such an Iron environment. Instead of a school and university training. Lincoln had little else than hardships, trials and struggles to lift him above relentless circumstances. Behold him as a lank, awkward youth, felling trees on a little claim, building his homely log cabin, without floor or windows, teaching himself arithmetic and grammar in the evening by the light of the fire. In his eagerness to know the contents of Blackstone's Commentaries, lie walked 44 miles to procure the precious volumes, and read 100 pages while returning. Yet it was this man. born in a log cabin, without schooling, or books, or teacher, or even ordinary opportuni ties, who won the admiration of man kind by his homely, practical wisdom while president, and who emancipated 4,000,000 slaves. What an inestimable blessing to the world, what an encouragement, an in spiration to the poor and lowly bofn, that his great achievements can bs accounted for by the triumph in his character of those qualities which are beyond the reach of money, of fam ily. of Influence, but are given freely to the lowest as well as to the high est. There is no quality of Integrity, perseverance, or industry that distin guished Lincoln, that any one, no mat ter how poor and humble, how hardly circumstanced, cannot cultivate. His career is a rebuke to the indo lent, faint-hearted youth of today, who, in this age of opportunity, dares to cry "No chance!" Abraham Lincoln is becoming more and more our national hero, and he would drop into oblivion, were we to discover that he had ever bartered that most precious attribute—his man hood, his character—or ever offered it for sale. "Die, when I may," said this king among men, "I want it said of me by those who know me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower, where I thought a flower would grow." What a glorious ideal, and how glo riously realized! No man ever lived of whom it could have been more truly said that,— "The elements So mixed In him that Nature might stand up And say to all the world, 'This Is a man !' " Elephant Office Boy.

I BEGIN PLANS FOR THE VEGETABLE GARDEN *" ■: ' 'i ill! §§ .i'll ■i?. i'i I j: Michigan White Wax Beans. (By W. F. MARTIN.) The earliest corn I plant is the Mal akoff sweet corn and a corn that was sent to me from Port Chester, N. Y. I have tried the Golden Bantam and while of fine quality, we get too little of it to afford the room for it It seems to do better In the North. I follow the Malakoff corn with Country Gentleman and Stonewell's Evergreen, making new plantings as fast as the previous one is up until August and then plant the last with the Port Chester corn. 1 sow Eclipse and Egyptian beets in late February, planting the seed by hand as I never found a drill that would sow beet seed properly. I drop the seed two in a place about four inches apart so that the thinning is easy. If the beets escape frost till they produce their true leaves they will stand a great deal of frost and the only time they are apt to get killed is juBt as they germinate, consequent ly I do take some risk in order to get them early. In the frames I get beets Boon aft er the outdoor ones are planted. The frames are sown with alternate rows of beets and early radishes six inches apart and the radishes come out early so that the beets have the 12-inch rpws. My tomato seeds are sown ten weeks before it is safe to set them out. I sow in flats in the conserva tory and transplant as soon as large enough to handle into other flats about two inches apart From these flats in March they go into a cold frame under glass sashes, and are gradually hardened off so that they can be set outside in April. I find that the earlier we get them out and they live the earlier the fruiting is. If frost threatens after they are started in the open ground I bend each plant over and shovel soil over it and have carried them through a temperature of 20 in that way. I Btart sweet peppers in the same way I start the tomatoes. I formerly used the Ruby King, but am now us ing the Neapolitan. For hot pepper sauce I plant a few Tobasco, but these I do not plant near the sweet peppers, for 1 found one season that the pol len from the Tobasco made the sweet peppers hot 1 train tomatoes to single stemB, ty ing them to stakes six feet tall and pinching out all side shoots. In this way I plant them in three foot rows and two feet between the plants. You cannot keep a clean garden if the tomato plants are allowed to tumble on the ground, for after they have oc cupied the ground the grass and weeds will take possession, while on stakes we can keep the ground clean. The earliest tomato I have tried is the Adirondack strain of Earllana. Bonny Best comes soon after, and for the main crop 1 use Success and Stone. I in April I sow seed of the Norfolk Queen onion very thickly to make sets. These are ripe in July and are cured end replanted in September for green onions. We usually get them ready tor use in late February. For the ripe crop of onions I plant sets of the Yel low Potato onion in the fall and use some of the offsets as green onions, but these are not good keepers and I sow as early in tne spring as the soil can be worked seed of the South port Yellow and White Globe in rowu 16 Inches apart. Then in January I sow in a cold frame under glass seed of the Prize taker onion which is the same as the Spanish onions imported under the name of Dénia onion. These are trans planted to the open ground as soon as they are the size of a goosequlil. They make immense onions and mild ones. very I have had them weigh over a pound each, but these, too, are not good keepers and are used or dis Straw of Much Value. It seems impossible that one would need to advise the farmer to save his straw stack but it is a fact. There are a great many people in different parts of the country who still find this a very valuable product. Straw on the dairy farm is always a neces sity. Ice Solvee Problem. A well-filled icehouse helps to solve the problem of better prices for but terfat A*« cosed of early on that account The New England varieties are the best keepers. They are pulled when the tops fall over and lie in the sun during the day, hut they are stored before night in a hot loft for curing with the tops left on. When perfectly cured they are stored in a cold, dark place with the dry tops still on, as they lie qiore loosely in this way and do not sprout so readily as when the tops are cut off. In the cultivation of garden crops it always pays best to manure and fer tilize heavily and plant in close rows and work with hand implements. Oi course, in the large trucking opera tions the crops like early potatoes, cabbages and peas are grown wide enough apart to use horses in the cul tivation. I frequently have letters from peo ple saying that they have been manur ing their gardens for years till the soil is so rich that potatoes make immense topB and no tubers. This is not be cause the soil Is too rich, but because the plant food in it is one-sided. The annual application of stable ma nure only has put an excess of ni trogen into the soil and in order to make tubers on the potatoes there must be an abundance of phosphoric acid and potash, for the presence of potash in due amount is necessary to the formation of starch to points where growth is being made or It is being stored in the tubers. Nitrogen promotes the vital activ ity of the plant and If it Is balanced by a due percentage of the mineral i ' A Hamper of Pole Lima Beane. matters it makes no difference how large the potato tops grow. You will have big potatoes, too. In my garden I spread stable manure an nually, and after turning it under I add a dressing of a mixture of eight per cent phosphoric acid and ten per cent potash for my soil is sandy and needs potash. This mixture is ap plied broadcast at a rate of half a ton an acre, and 1 find that any crop grown thrives better with manure and the commercial mixture While the Malakoff and Port Ches ter corns are the earliest sweet corns i plant, they cannot be planted as early as the Norfolk Extra Early, which is an early Dent. This I can plant in late March, and I have had it pass through two or more white frosts, but when there is a frost I always make sure by turn ing the hose on the plot and washing the frost off before the sun rises. This has never failed to protect the corn, and I have even saved string beans in April In this way, but in the case of beans that are up when the frost threatens, 1 usually take the garden plow and throw furrows over them from each side. This is certain to protect them. Prevent Egg-Eating. The treatment for thé prevention of the egg-eating habit consists of sup- j plying the hens with proper and suffi cient food.

JEB STUART Tactics of Famous Confederate Gen eral Approved and Adopted by German Masters of War. "Twenty-eight years ago when I was in Germany studying art," said a New York artist, "I had a friend who was a sublieutenant in the army. Like most German officers he was an enthusias tic soldier—militarists we call them now—and one day he brought a book to me to read because it was, he said, an authority with all German officers in tactical matters and was really part of their military education. "I was not especially interested, not being much of a soldier, but when I saw the book my interest very terially Increased, for it was a copy of 'Drei Jahre Im Sattel,' by Heros von. Borke, the representative of Germany with Gen. Jeb Stuart's cavalry in Civil war, the English title being 'Three Years In the Saddle.' Borke had not only been with the Con federate general for three years, but he was in the thick of it and had written a story that was intensely in teresting for its daring adventure and, was of such technical and tactical value as to warrant the unusual posi tion accorded it by German military authorities. "The fact that I was a Yankee did not lessen my pride the least in Gen eral Stuart's work, for we were all good Americans by that time and I was proud to know that we teaching Germany one style of fight ing anyhow. The book was in Ger man and I suppose It has been trans lated, though I have never seen a copy outside of Germany." ma our V on were A Weak Defense.
