Eft Wr* fife Ejwi'f' Ii 1 &V«i §k EIJ 8w. 1 Ike* Kr 1 Epj i'l BK S0\ 1, BP WM ft: Lafayette, Ind., Letter: The onlyv twin expert rifle shots in the world are Misses Edith and Ethel Long of this :5ity. Although only twelve years of age these precocious young girls can perform all the best tricks of the most skillful adult pro fessionals. They shoot together at the most dif ficult of targets and seldom miss. Here are some of the feats they can perform with ease: Shooting with back to target by means of a mirror, cutting of the stem of a clay pipe bit by bit down to the bowl, knocking the -ashes off a cigar, lighting ordinary parlor matches, cutting in two a visit ing card placed with edge toward the shooter, and plowing a furrow with the bullet along the edge of the card. The Misses Long are members of the Lafayette club, and despite their youth are considered as being among its best shots. Their extraordinary Ml&b ETHEL LfcNf, skill has attracted widespread atten tion and they have received numerous offers to appear in public, but being the strictest of amateurs none of these offers has ever been considered. The youthful dead shots owe their proficiency to their father, John E. Long, himself conceded to be one of the most clever riflemen in the coun try. It was he who trained them and initiated them into all the mysteries of sighting, making allowances for wind, and all the other details so nec «ssary to the education of the crack shot. Mr. Long has a genius for teaching this difficult art. It was he who train ed Sonia Wright, the yonng Western woman whose achievements with the rifle have attracted such general at tention, and who is now conceded to be Annie Oakley's only rival for the feminine premiership of the rifle world. Mr. Long is an engineer in the local water works. He has never taken part in any contest for money and only shoots for the diversion of himself and his friends. Discussing the skiil of his daughters and the methods of traiping from which it resulted he said: "They ought to be good shots if there Is anything in heredity, for they come of a race of marksmen. We are descended from a race of backwoods men who were among the earliest set tlers in the west, and their skill with the shotgun and rifle has descended from generation to generation, with out a miss. I "My father, now a man of amost 75, can hit a cap box lid twenty paces away with a regularity which be comes monotonous, and I personally can perform almost any shot known to the profession. "The girls have thus been raised in an atmosphere of powder and have always from their earliest childhood been anxious to try their skill. While thoroughly intending to train them eventually the fear of some accident me to defer the commencement as long as possible. "I began with Edith and Ethel six months ago and was utterly surprised at the rapid progress they made. Neither had ever had a rifle in her bands before, and almost from the first they sent the bullets crashing through the dead center of, the bull's- :eye. "First I placed the target at ten yards, and then, when this distance bad been mastered, gradually extend ed it,until today they, can hit the black center at one hundred yards. "They use the rifles made especially for them, and the fact that these are only twenty-two calibre makes the feats the girls perform all the more difficult a deviation of one-tenth of an inch is sufficient to make a clean miss. "Five weeks after the first lesson, before they had fired 200 rounds of ammunition, the girls, could perform many feats deemedldifflcult, even by professionals.

"I attribubte their wonderful suc cess to naturally true eyes and steady hands. They seemed to handle the rifle by instinct. I scarcely had to tell them how to hold it it seemed to fall as easily and naturally into the cor rect position as it they had been shooting for years. "As soon as they had achieved pro ficiency with the rifle, and had ad vanced so far as to be able to hit the target ten times out of ten, each of the girls became ambitious to use a shotgun. "My shotgun is so heavy that it wa3 as much as either Ethel or Edith could do to shoulder it, and yet, in several trials, they did very well, av eraging only about six misses out of every twenty-five shots. I am having shotguns adapted to their size especi ally made for them and expect some SISTERS. THE ^TDITM i-bNcy brilliant performances in this direc tion when the girls become ^'aflcus tomed to the new firearms. "I am, of course, very proyd of my daughters' skill and am teaching them with the greatest care. I con sider rifle practice an excellent sport for women. It steadies their nerves teaches them self-control and develops the eye. I take great pleasure in im parting my knowledge of firearms to anyone desiring to learn, but espe cially the younger generation. "I have trained many pupils and have been singularly fortunate in never having an accident of any kind. I teach all novices to consider a firoi arm as being always loaded, and in this way habits of care and caution are developed, which becomes second nature. "Edith and Ethel are now training to enter some of the coming shoots of the Lafayette Gun Club, of which they are members, and I am very hopeful that they will add some of the prizes to our collection of sporUng trophies." PhUadeldhla's Log Cabin. The only log cabin in Philadelphia Is to be torn down to make way for the widening of Mermaid lane, near Chest nut hill. The old cabin, which stands at the corner of Mermaid lane and Germantown avenue, has been in con stant use as a residence since it was erected by Christopher Yeakel in 1743. It is a one-story structure, built en tirely of hewn logs, and for many years has been one of the picturesque sights of upper Germantown. It is still called the Yeakel cottage, and al In any resume of the elements that have contributed to the progress of China, it is simply just to allude to the labors of the missionaries of all nations and all denominations. Truth ful history must say of them that they preceded commerce, that their literary and educational labors have instructed foreigners as to China and China as to foreigners, and that their exalted philanthropy has begot among the poor and the rich a great measure of respect and confidence. While it is proper to give to the Imperial mari time customs, to the ministers and consulB, and to the great commercial houses full praise for their labors, we should not forget gratefully to remem ber those unobtrusive, but influential, agents of progress, whose inspiration came from a holier source than a de sire for gain. The question of the future of the missionaries Is clear-cut now, and it lies outside of any consideration as to the Intrinsic value of their work. It is this: Conceding all the good that is claimed for missionary work, should it, in view of the present condition of China, be abandoned? That question is to be answered. In the beginning we must recognize the undoubted fact that the /Catholic powers—the pope, I though more than a century and a half old, it has always preserved a cozy and homelike air. It is said to be the only survivor in this part of the coun try of a style of dwelling that once prevailed almost universally outside the cities and towns.—Philadelphia Record. PRICE OF RAILS. Cheaper Here than In England or on the Continent. The manufacture of steel rails, which, by the way, are few in number, are laying particular stress upon the fact that American railroads are buy ing rails this year cheaper than any otfcer country in the world. They point out that in England the prices are about $5 higher than the rate de cided upon her. They also lay stress upon the fact that the Continental roads will pay about $6 more than what American roads will pay. It is now claimed by the steel companies that the railroads arc satis3ed $26 a ton will be maintained. "Last year," said the representative of one of the large concerns, "we mad9 a price which was agreed to in moat of the large contracts. When the prices of others materials advanced, and manufacturers were warranted in in creasing their prices they did not do so. On the other hand, when the prices fell, and .the manufacturers were justified in reducing it was decid ed that such a course would be unfair to the purchasers who had banked on prices being kept up. "You will find," he continued, "that the railroads of the country will place their orders right along at the rate determined upon. As a matter of fact it costs more to manufacture rails now that it did some years ago. The trains are heav ier and better rails are required." A canvass of the offices of '.he rail manufacturing companies in Pittsburg showed that, While some contracts have been taken, none of the larga consumers has placed orders. It is pointed out that it is early yet. Some In the market for 150,000 tons of rails, and that altogether a tonnage of 1, 200,000 tons will be placed, as com pared with 2,000,000 last year. An of ficial of the New .York Central was quoted by a news agency as saying it was the intention of that company to pay $26 a ton for rails. Aroused Her Sympathy. Here is an amusing story apropos of the German autumn maneuvers: A little old woman, living in an out of-the-way place in the Harz moun tains and knowing nothing of soldier ing and militarism, happened to pass an outpost early one morning. On his epaulette she read the number of his company—77. At dusk she passed the place again, and again the number on the soldier's shoulder was 77. Imag ining that soldiers, like convicts, go Individually by numbers, she hobbled to her cottage at her best speed and presently came back with a wooden chair, which she placed beside the young warrior, saying: "There now, you can sit down a bit, you poor creature. It is inhuman to let you stand on the self-same spot all day long. Your business can be done sit ting just as well as standing. I'll come for my chair later on." Before the sentry could explain she had slipped away.—Westminster Budget Frlnce Avoids Orleans. One reason for the prince of Wales giving up his intended visit to Marien bad at the last moment was his desire to avoid a meeting with the duke of Orleans, who had prolonged his stay at that watering place in order that he might be there when the prince ar rived. It is believed that the duke of Orleans had intended to force a fussy and florid reconciliation upon the prince, and to "make him a seene." The queen has never invited him, and the prince of Wales has taken no no tice of him for along time past.—Lon don Truth. Setting Apart Forest Reserves. On the recommendation of the wai department of the agricultural de partment is preparing an order set ting apart as forest reserves the is land of Rombolin, north of the is land of Pauitaui, which is one of tha extreme group of the Jolo islands. Of ficers of the army who have been look ing over the islands, have found that these are perhaps the richest in tha world for rubber trees, and it is tha intention of the Washington authori ties to ihave the trees preserved and cared for. F\iture of Chii\& Spain, Italy, and especially Franco will never consent that the Catholio missionaries shall be driven out ol China. Their interests there are im« mense. There are twenty-eight Catho* lie bishops in the empire, of whom three are in the province of Chibli, There are vast establishments over thi country, with schools colleges am) asylums. Curiously, the Catholici have not gone into medical or surgical work, but they fill all other fields, cov ering industrial schools, carpenter and other shops, and all the forms of la bor. The great cathedral at Pekjn waa built mostly by the native Christians. The wealth of the chnrch is enormous. The chief religious societies, the Jesu its, Benedictines, Augustines, Chris tian Brothers, Lazarists and Francis cans are found at many places. Yon cannot turn the dial of progress back. You cannot revoke all the treaties. You c&nnot undo the work of.thre* centuries. If the continental Catholio remains in China, his Protestant col league will go thither. It is not human nature to stand back and see others occupying fields of danger «r of vem ture, and it is not in Christian nature to disregard tie divine command to go into the world and teach aQ na tions.—Charlef Denby in The Forum. FAEM AND GARDEN. MATTERS OF INTEREST TO AGRICULTURISTS. P** Some Up-to-Data Hints About Caltlva* tion of the Soil and Yields Thereof— Horticulture, Tltlnulture mud Floricul ture* Eng'tah niae-Orass In the West.. John S. Gilmore of Fredonia, Kas., is more practically familiar with the production of English blue grass, or meadow fescue, having raised it on a larger scale, than perhaps any other man in the middle west At the re quest of Secretary F. D. Coburn he has written an account of his experi ence, whieh appears in a recent report of the Kansas department of agricul ture. Extracts from his article fol low: This grass has a two-fold value for its seed crop and for pasturage—the relative importance of each being de termined by the view and interest of the grower. The seed crop brings early cash, and it is for seed that the grass is chiefly grown in Kansas. It's heaviest yields are given in the first three or four years, which run from six to twelve bushels per acre, accord ing to soil and season. Kansas 13 be •lieved to produce seventy-five per cent iof the seed crop of this country, and at least ninety per cent of the total crop of the United States is sent abroad. On any lands fairly adapted for corn (in eastern Kansas) it can be advantageously grown but on light, whitish soil, it does not show strong vitality nor resist extreme dry weather, and is brief lived. The ground should be plowed some itime before seeding (as for wheat) Ithat it may settle, but if freshly iplowed can be improved by going over .it with a float. The best state of tilth I attainable is highly important. The nearer the ground can be made like a .garden, and the more even and level before drilling in or sowing the seed, the better, A majority favor drilling, but other very successful growers sow broadcast and harrow in lightly and some fall plant, while others prefer lhe spring for seeding. I favor the fall, if the ground can be prepared and rains sufficiently moisten the soil by September 1 to 15, but am aware that ample moisture can be expected in the •spring, and, therefore, a good stand •is surer. But a fall start brings a ,seed crop a year sooner, and the grass gets dominant in advance of noxious vegetation. It is not easily winter killed if the fall is not unfavorable and the ground was early plowed. I do not like the hoe-drill so well as a shoe-drill, nor the eight-inch so well as the six-inch-apart drill rows, though some have used the former with satis factory results. The quantity planted per acre varies from a peck to three pecks when pro ducing seed is the paramount object, and from three pecks to a bushel and upwards when pasture alone is sought. A tialf-bushel per acre when seed crops are the first consideration and it is drilled in, is enough on rightly pre pared ground, for then every seed i3 covered if showers follow harrowing in, almost every seed will sprout and take root. An inch is ample depth to drill, and, if. the ground surface is uni formly leveled, scarcely any of the •seed is put too deep. When har rowed in, the harrow should be set to run as for millet and similar light seed. The seed should be cleaned and freed from cheat and weed seed, if possible, before planting. Fescue is ready for cutting for seed right after wheat, with the self-binding harvester, and is shocked as aro wheat and oats. The bundles are somewhat ragged in appearance and bulky at the butts because of the heavy blade growth, the straw of which is valuable winter feed for cattle. It is stacked or thrashed out of the shock by the regu lar thrasher men, and the cost per bushel ranges from the wheat charge to double the same, according to the quantity. If sold, the seed is taken from the thrashing machine direct to the railroad, loaded in cars, in two bushel bags, and shipped. The points in favor of raising, this grass in the portion of Kansas where it best thrives are several and substan tial. It is not especially risky nor ex pensive for seed and labor to get a stand the same implements and ma chinery used for the other crops are employed in its planting and harvest ing the seed is a fairly profitable crop En itself with a yield near the aver age, and at a price of from three and one-half cents to four cents per pound the straw after thrashing (probably one-fourth of a ton per acre) leads all other straw for roughage, and stock cleans it up with avidity. Horticultural Observation*. The Roman Stem apple originated in New Jersey and is very successful along that coast and as far south as North Carolina, according to the re ports of the American Pomologlcal Society. It also succeeds very well in all the strip of country between New Jersey and the Rocky Mountains, be ing successfully grown as far south as the southern line of Tennessee. It is fairly successful in the New Eng land states and New York, Ohio and Michigan. AmOng experts the apple is regarded as of above medium in flavor. It^is a late-keeping apple. In color it is a combination of yellow, red and white. The question of the purity of Paris green is coming to be of first import ance. The Paris green now on the market varies in value from full price to nothing. Many of the non-successes of spraying are directly due to the inferior quality of the" Paris green .used. Some of the stuff being sold for Paris green is of no more value for spraying purposes than so much salt or land plaster. This charge is not rashly made, but is based on care ful investigations by the California and other experiment stations. It is said that pure Paris green cannot be sold under 30 cents per pound, but that much now on the market is retailing at 12 cents and under and paying a handsome profit The California ex periment station sent out inquiries to all the stations in the United States asking the experience of the officials as to the Paris green sold in their respective states. Some of these re plies showed that little fault could be found, so far as the officials had ,• "... I learned. On the other hand reports from other states showed an alarmlngi condition of affairs in this respect The report of the California station shows that in that state three kinds of inferior Paris green are sold. One of these the report designates as bogus, another as adulterated and tha third a3 low grade. The kind styled bogus is absolutely worthless, tha adulterated is nearly so and the low grade may be effective if enongh ot it is used. It might well be said that none of these are worth buying. Thp low grades are sold as high grades, and the users figure the proportions to use on that basis, with the resu't that the sprays are far too weak to do any gopd., Every man interested in fruit grow* ing should be a member of his state horticultural society, as he can in thai way get information that will be oi inestimable benefit The dues to most of these societies are but $1 per year, and many of them charge only $5 for a life membership. He will have the benefit of the experience of all of the great fruit growers in the state and the bound volume that he annually receives will be worth more than that to him as something that he can put on his shelf and refer to year after year as new causes for snch reference arise. For instance, a life member ship in the State Horticultural Society of Illinois costs but $5 and the new member gets a set of volumes as far back as the society can furnish. This set of volumes alone is worth far mord than the sum charged for annual mem bership, and In addition the member gets a volume a year without extra charge as long as he lives. The so ciety can do this because the state makes an annual appropriation for the use of the society and its expenses are met in that way. The fee Is charged to in some manner regulate the member ship, it being taken for grantjd that a man will not pay the fee unless he is really interested in horticulture, and if he is the fee will not be a barrier to his becoming a member. We wish that every farmer that reads the Farmers' Review would connect him self with his state horticultural so ciety, or at least with some local so ciety with like objects. Swine Items. A Marengo, la., correspondent writes that hogs in his locality are healthy and are going to market in nice shape and bringing good prices. The sea son's crop of young pigs Is about ten per cent larger than last year's. In New Zealand many of the swine growers have combined and estab lished pork markets in which is sold mostly dairy fed pork. Such pork finds a ready sale, as the people prefer it to much of the other pork obtain able on the markets. On a farm with reasonably good buildings and a clover pasture the cost of a gain of a pound of live weight on a hog up to 150 pounds is not very much in excess of two cents, says an exchange. To this must be added the interest on the value of the brood sow, the cost of her keep, the risk of acci dent, the cost of the grass, etc. The Australian coasting steamei Kameruka, while going from Eden to Sydney, traveling at full speed, struck on a reef at Moruya Head. There be ing no rockets on the ship the captain tied a life-line to some pigs which formed part of the cargo, and had-the animals put overboard. The pigs swam to the shore, taking the lines with them, and by establishing communica tion every soul on board was saved. Statistics embodied in a recent re port of livestock in Great Britain show a considerable decrease in the pig stocks for the year. Among the Scottish counties, Ayrshire has the largest pig population, her numbers being 13,920 head, Aberdeenshire fol lows with 12,346 head, and is closely followed by Wigtownshire, which has 12,020 head, while Dumfriesshire comes fourth with 10,915 head. At the Dominion Experiment Station at Ottawa feeding experiments have been undertaken with hogs to deter mine the causes of soft pork. On® hundred animals are being experi mented with. Some are being fed on rape and grain, some on clover and some on grain and a variety of grains is being used. Combinations include ing barley, clover, oats and peas arq used and one lot has been turned lntf a field of artichokes. Among the special features of tha Pan-American exposition at Buffalo next year will be a fine swine exhibit which will be held the latter part of September, and which it is expected will attract a large representation of twelve different breeds of swine, In-, eluding the Suffolk, Victorias anJ Tamworths which are but little known in the United States. Canadian farm ers are better acquainted with them and will doubtless contribute exhibits. A special exhibit of hogs adapted ta the production of bacon is promised. The managers of this department of the great show count on not less than 1,500 animals. New Enemy of Tobacco.

The oyster when at home lives in, a hard lline shell which nicely pro tects him from the attacks of enefnies.' Man, with his tools, can open the shell and remove the soft animal, but be-) Sides man the oyster has few foes.. Oddly enough, his greatest foe is not, as might be expected, an animal with a powerful Jaw and strong teeth, butj one wholly without Jaws. It is tha common starfish, so common every-* Where at the seashore.. Now, the star flBh is a soft, ^flexible creature, very Sluggish, seemingly helpless and ut-i Iterly unable to attack such an animal fes the oyster. Its mouth, which ii the center of the disk, has no teetlij br jaws. How can such a helpless creature open the formidable oystej fchell and get at the animal concealed Within? Its method of doing so 1^ 'odd enough. It first clasps the oysterf in its arms, wrapping its five armq around the shell tightly. Having thus Seized the oyster, it quietly waits. Just exactly what happens next even our (scientists do not exactly know. The two shells of the oyster are held to gether by a hinge which is opened by fe spring. The spring is so adjusted that the shells will be pushed open •unless they are held together by the muscles. Some scientists tell us that (after the starfish has held the oyster for awhile the oyster opens its shell ta order to get food, and the starfish that has been waiting for this now in jects Into the shell a little reddish liquid. This acts as a poison, says H. U. Conn, in St. Nicholas, paralyzing the muscles and thus making it im possible for the animal to close its [.hells tightly together until the oyster 5s smothered. As soon as it is stupe fled by the suffocation the muscles re tax and the shell opens. Whichever of these two accounts is true It is certain that after a iittle the oyster Shells fly open. Now comes the oddest feature of all. The stomach of the Starfish is very large and elastic, and it is now thrown out of the animal's inouth much as one would turn a bag inside out. This stomach is then thrust within the oyster shell and wrapped around the soft animal, be feinning at once to digest it Tha starfish does not take the trouble even to remove the oyster from its shell, digesting it in its own home and .event ually crawling away, leaving behind 'the gaping, empty shell. MONUMENT TO A DOQ. In Memory or Barry, Rescuer of Forty I*ersons. Considerable human interest Is be ing found by the Italian press In the ceremonies that recently attended tho •erection of a monument on the Moun tain of St. Bernard, to the memory o2 famous deg belonging to the convenl 'there. Barry was the dog's name, and 'in ten years he saved the lives of for ty persons who had lost their way on the glaciers of Mount St. Bernard. What is considered his most remark able achievement was performed abo'ut three years ago, when he found a child ten years old lying in the snow undej the influence of the fatal slumber which precedes death. Barry, with •curious comprehension of the needs of the situation, first warmed the child With his breath, and then aroused it from sleep by licking its face. Thia much accomplished, Barry, by lying down by its side, gave the child an obvious invitation to get on and ride. The child did so and was carried by Barry to the convent. This episode, like his other achievements, is rec orded at the convent, and to the truth 'of its circumstances several witnesses have subscribed. The death of tha dog was due to the timidity or ras cality of some unknown man who per haps fancied that Barry waa ap proaching him with evil intent Tha •stranger killed the dog. by hitting it on the head.
