Plumb describes his experiments f hat will prove a very important addi ,...4 to our pasture foods. It is rich In nutri ment, and a heavy grower. He has proved iat it will grow in a cold climate. He says: Lucerne or alfalfa, (medicago sativa) is a ery well-known forage crop in the far west snd southwest in certain dry, arid regions. fhe plants belong to the leguminosoe or pea family, in which are included the clovers, eaa, beans, etc. Its stem is erect, succulent h it young growth, branching, smooth, ud produces leaflet in sets of threes. The ,'lowers are small, and pale blue or purplish. i ww, m n buugu nun biajuij, especially itia muiu-yr utp root, loe plant produces an abumiance of foliaee. IAs a result of several season's trials I have found alfalfa to make an abundant, vigor 1 ou, healthy growth in northern New York, where the soil la cold and the thermometer I will drop to fifteen or more degrees below zero in winter. On April 20 our alfalfa lot begin a vigorous growth, and on July yne nrsc cutting u usually made. One plot Yucu at- m raw oi over nn ion per acre ,'reeu loauer; anoiner seven and one-hair f per acre. Oa July 17 the plot) were i V v ajaln cut, nd yinldl at tin rate of over Ax lon per oti. On K4'ptinil?r 8 another crop of ovr three tom pr aire was liarvestd, and on O'-lotar - one plot wa cut, which yioldad tut tho rale of ovnr throe tons per acre. Tlwse plot have nmde good growth for thren suo rlv yonrs. The foliaje Is very succulent, and the stock of the farm relish It very much. The average height of the plant Just before making the first cutting was two feet four Inches, a near as could be ascertained, though some pluntf attained height of two feat nine inches. The plot were not manured. On July ID I made a root washing bed from bed of alfalfa. The roots descended quite vertically into the soil, and many of them were large and stocky. A foot below the surface one root measured three-eighth of an inch In diameter, and at two feet depth nearly one-fourth of an inch. Fibrous root were not at all abundant, though pene trating to a depth of four feet below the crown, where a bed of hard, tenacious clay war encountered. One large tap root wa traced three feet ten and one-bait inches below the surface. Yet In sandy soil or sandy loam the roots of alfalfa penetrate to a greater depth than almost any other forage plant, and Mr. Qould mentions an instance in which the roots were traced to a depth of thirteen feet It is this ability to penetrate to a great depth in search for food and moisture which makes this plant of so much value in those regions where shallow rooted plants can not be grown ex cept by irrigation. In conversing with farmers who have en deavored to grow alfalfa in northern New York I have been told that they find it diffi cult to make a "catch." I have bad no diffi culty in this respect ' Sowing about twenty pounds per acre in May, the seeds germinate and produce plants that do not attain a cut ting size the first year, but after the first year the crop is a generous one, as four har vests the past season testify. I believe it will pay northern farmers to give this plant a trial, for I think it will succeed in many places. Simply prepare the ground as for clover. In curing for hay it will be well not to allow the plants to dry too much, else the leaves will rattle oft. The crop should be cut before the plant is at all advanced in blooming, else the status will become woody. If cut as soon as a good succulent growth is made a new crop wil) soon be under way. For soiling or for ensiage I consider lucerne an admirable plant It does not spread at all, and if desired can be easily eradicated by cutting below the crown of the plant In trying it the farmer need not fear that it will remain on' his land as a troublesome pest Hay Barracks. Timothy meadow will produce more tim othy hay to have one-third of the crop clover. The latter keeps the soil loose, mel low and damp, and the timothy makes heavier crop. Sheds or barracks can be made cheaply to store such hay. One twenty feet square and twenty feet high, with a movable roof, will do very well witheut boarded sides. Buch a barrack will hold twenty tons of hay, and' with a horse fork can be easily filled t wenty feet high. The cost of a hay barrack of this kind will te paid for the first year in the better keep ing of twenty tons of hay. The roof should be made as light as possible, so that it can be raised and lowered, as it U filled or emptied. It should be light enough so that one man can raise or lower a corner at a time, at his convenience. Without this it will have to be boarded up, as the rain and tnsr would blow under the roof. But if tho roof is raided as it is filled, in haying a load can be put in at any time, as it is in a barn, and then it is safe. Great care and good judgment have to be exercised to have the hay cured just right and when it is right it should go immediately to tbe barn or shed, as mixed hay cannot be saved successfully in cock in a rain. So it Is all important to have a place where hay can be stored just as soon as it is ready. Nearly half of all hay cut when it is stacked is spoiled. Where clover is, the water will run in it will spoil in for some inches all over the stack, and a considerable of a layer at the bottom is worthless. And when a stack is opened in winter or summer to feed it is at the mercy of the weather, which is always of the worst character at the wrong time. Or, if you do not liks the barracks, make sheds with stationary roofs. They can be twenty feet wide and as long as desired. It should bo sloped all one way, and if covered with boards, made pretty steep. It is best to have the highest side face the east as the heavy, dashing showers seldom come from that direction. If the bay settles after put in, it would be better to put on boards ex tending from the roof down to the hay to protect it. Iowa Register. The Cabbage Worm. The cabbage worm can be driven off by a decoction of smart weed, or tobacco stems, or by kerosene emulsion, made by mixing sour milk with two parts coal oil by thor ough churning or shaking, and then diluting with twelve times its bulk of water, or by mixing ono ounce of yellow bard soap with me pint of coal oil, and then with six quarts vf water, and sprinkling through a watering pot, or by dusting with "slug shot."

I put a little salt in the mouth to make them chew, and swallow. In twenty to thirty minutes the gas will pass off through the animal's mouth when the stick may be re moved.

Now plant some more every month, June, July and first of August Never salt butter more than at the rate of three ounces to ten pounds not quite a third of an ounce to the pound. Much so-called butter come to the city markets that taste more like pickled pork. . Many farmers continue to keep shoes on their horses during the plowing and corn cultivating season. It will be a relief to the horse and benefit bis feet to be relieved of shoes for the plowing season. Successful winter dairying is carried on by the use of roots for cow feed. Plant them in time. There are carrots, mangolds, sugar beets, etc., anything but turnips. These make the milk taste. Juicy foods keep up the flow of milk. A would-be-farmer set out a year ago three acres of strawberries, and never got a berry. The reason was he set out only pistillate or male plants. He did not know that some varieties of strawberries are imperfect, and must have rows of another variety planted along with them. FHOr.1 JACKSON.

Previous to ttie reception at the White House last night, President and Mrs. Cleve land drove to the Schu'.zen fest, which is in progress here this week. Every man, worni n and child in the inclosure gathered around the carriage and fol lowed it from the entrance to the pa vilion, striving to get a glimpse at its occupants. They did not alight, but toe officers of tbe association and the king of the feast, who had won the marksman's prize, were introduced to the chief magistrate and bride. The president smiled upon the "king" by which tith be was introduced and said: "He looks like one." They were then escorted through tbe grounds and witnessed a trapeze per formance by the Lamonts. Before they departed one young German wo man insisted on showing her baby to the present, who chucked it under the chin amid roars of laughter, in which Mrs. Cleveland heartily joined. They departed amid hearty cheers and God be wid yez, Cleveland," from a crippled Irish veteran from the sol diers' home. Waving of Hands, Hats and Hand kerchiefs. Edinburgh, June 19.

I I I nt - Mr LuuitlU' The Country People Throng to Wit ness the Funeral of the Dead Monarch. Munich, Jute 19. The excitement among the Bavarian people over the death of King Ludwig remains un abated. The lower classes, up to the hour of the funeral today, thronged the gates of the royal palace, awaiting admission to the chapel, and exhibit ing alt the signs of sincere grief and sympathy. People from the country and the mountains flocked into the city all daylong. Among the mountaineers was a Tyrolese woodman, to whom Ludwig once gave a diamond ring for some service. When he reached the coffin in tbe palace chapel he fell on his knees beside it and subbed and walled. The crowd in and about the palace was so great thht when dinner was being laid for the German Crown Prince Freder ick William, tbe servants engaged in conveying tbe gold plates from tbe treasury to the palace dining hall found themselves unable to obtiin ac cess to the building by the regular doorway, and were compelled to reach the first floor by means of a ladder. Men and boys passed all of last night on the steps of the Loggie in Ludwig palace, in order to secure places to witness the funeral The hotels of the city are crammed, and lodgings have been at a premium for several days. It is not possible to doubt that both chambers of the Bavarian parlia ment wi l recognize Prince Liutpold's regency. Tbe committee having the matter in charge will, on Monday next, report upon the question, and will set tle Prince Luitpold apanage. Lud wig's insane brother, and successor to the throne, King Oito, when informed of his accession, received tbe news apathetically, and replied, "So, So. Tho soldiers must march out then." He is mentally incurable, but his bodily htulth is robust. Prince L titpo d'a- sister and the lbdies in waiting were present when Ludwlg's mother was informed of her son's suicide. The announcement was very formal. Tbe court chaplain began by reading from the Bible a text suitable to the occasion. This he repeated three times. It alarmed tbe king's mother, and in a startled way she asked "if anything was amiss with the king." When she was told that Ludwig was dead she fell back to tbe floor unonscious. She was ex tremely prostrated and was placed in bed, where she remained many hours, ceaselessly sobbing. Its now stated that when King Ludwig was re moved from IIohenschaDgwianto Berg castle he was quite touched at the sight of his valet weeping over the king s misfortune. "Never mind, old fellow," said the king, "I shall soon gft better of that eld fool," pointing to Dr. Van Godden. The bells throughout Bava ria will ring every day for six weeks, from noon until 1 o'clock in the morn ing for the king. The programme cf iiayreath plays will be continued as usual. King Ludwig was Juried this aiternoon. The concourse of people at the funeral was immense and a number of persons were crushed in the crowd and in jured. Many of the people Wept and sobbed aloud as the king's cottin was borne along to its last resting place. Newspaper Correspondents Before a Senate Committee. Washington, June 19. Several newspaper correspondents were exam ined under oath this morning by the seriate committee on public lands, in respect to their interviews with B. S. Dement, surveyor general of Utah, whose nomination is pending before the committee. The interviews con tained, with other things, charges that toe Mormons had a lobby in Washing ton, spending money to iotluence legis lation by congress, and that a certain senator had been influenced in bis ac tion upon public measures by payments of large sums of money. The mate rial and sensational feature of the in terview were denied by Mr. Dement a' an examination made by the commit tee last February, but the newspaper men told the committee that tbe utterances imputed to Mr. Dement were actually made by him. At the examination in February the witnesses were not placed upon oath. Since present inquiry was begun by order of senate, Mr. Dement has sent a sworn statement to the committee reiterating bis denials. The news paper men this morning repeated their statements and gave additional corro borative information. They gave tbe names of several other gentlemen to wbom Dement is salid to have made his sensational statements, some of whom will be subpoeaed by the com mission. Parties Imprisoned Demanding Their Freedom. New York, June 19 Argument was beard to-day by Judge Donohue, in the supreme court, in the habeas corpus cases of prisoners confined in Ludlow State jail, who demand release in conformity with the new law for imprisonment for debt . The creditors of the prisoners claim that the law is unconstitutional and the prisoners' lawyers uphold its constitutionality. The decision was reserved. Priests Ordained. Baltimore, June 19. Cardinal elect Gibbons ordained five priests this morning at St. Mary's Catholic theolo gical seminary this city. The candi dates were Revs. J. Callahan and Joseph Schmitt, of Columbus, Ohio; Rey. Joseph McCue, of San Francisco; Rev. J. F. Sullivan, of Galveston, Texas, end Rev. Marous Haas, of the Capuchin monastery, Cumberland, Md. The young priests will leave for their homes eaily next week. The Foreign Prnn on Cfatn' Home ftui. London, June 11), Tbe Tdcgr.tj :h (Conservative) says: "Mr. GlaiHoues KJInglnirg oration Is powerful, but It clou not face the time inanes. He faih to perceive that his plan involves separation, while his opponents occupy Arm ground on the Union. Lord Salis bury has sensibly pointed out that the first duty of the government, a duty too long neglected, Is to restore order Ireland." The News (Ministerial) says Mr Gladstone struck the keynote when he said this election is the people's election. The question resolves Itself into home rule versus repression. The people will not be easily frightened by tbe big bears that Lord Salisbury and bis allies are conjuring. The standard blames Mr. Gladstone for dishonesty in declaring that the home bill is dead when a few weeks ago he declared he would never recon struct it. The so-called principle, con tinues the Standard, might mean any thing. Mr. Gladstone does not give any details of his contemplated scheme, because he is unable to defend them. He gives instead empty platitudes. Lord Salisbury, on the other hand. offers a well defined extension of local self-government coupled with the con tinued supremacy of the imperial par lUmenf. The Times says: "If we had to de scribe Mr. Gladstone's remarkable spetch in a single phrase we would say it is too clever by half. He has sur passed himself in audacious quibbliog with plain issues in juggling with empty phrases, in ignoring and per verting notorious facts, and setting at detiaDca the logic of common sense. After begging in the last election for a majority with which to resist Parnell, he is now asking for a majority with which to effect tbe surrender that Mr. Parnell dictates, He poses a model of constancy and thanks God he is not as that publican and sinner, Hartington. Tnere is nothing finer in the long an nals of phariseism. Against Mr. Glad stone's insinuations respecting the in terview between Mr. Parnell and the earl of Carnovan, we have the ex "licit denial of Lord Salisbury, The tatter's advice to the Conservatives to support Unionist candidates in dis tricts where the Conservative party is not numerically strong enough to elect candidates of its own, is sound and much needed. Washington Notes. Washington, June 19. it is ex pected that a call for the redemption of 14,000,000 three per cent bonds will be issued early next week. A light occurred in the house to-day over the item in the naval bill which makes an appropriation for the erec tion of the observatory building at Washington, for which a site has been purchased, Mr. Warner, of Ohio, said that it was bis understanding that it was the intention to construct villas for offi cers in charge of tbe observatory. The clause as framed, 83 be thought, was no expenditure to the construe tioo of the observatory buildings, but so as to admit of the building of fine country houses to be occupied by the officers. He offered an amendment limiting tbe cost to f 100,000 and pro viding that no money should be ex pended except on the observatory building proper. Mr. Adams, of Illinois, tried to make a point of order, but it was too late. Mr. Buck asked Mr. Warner about the villas. He replied that there had been considerable talk about the mat ter in newspapers, and he had himself seen the plans,. Mr. Breckenridge said he thought the clause should be striken out, and the matter not acted upon until plans were adopted. Mr. Warner withdrew his amend ment and submitted another, which made no limit as to the cost of the buildiDgs.nor described their character. Mr. Bhnchard then showed that the plans had already been adopted. This amendment was agreed to by a vote of 34 to 6. Mr. Breckenridge moved to strike out the chuse as amended. This mo tion was lost by a vote of 51 to 14, and the clause was allowed to stand. The clause appropriates $50,000 to start the buildings with.

When they get ready to declare and to live up to the declaration that if their policy is not carried out their opponents must leave the party, the process will be reversed. The fate ot the tariff reform depends entirely on the courage or cowardice of its de- fenders." The Tribune says: "Though Mr. Morrison does not tike to admit that the fight is over for the present, no one doubts that a majority will at any fu ture test be found opposed to the con stderation of this ili-tlmed measure. The continued agitation is not desired by anybody except by free trade theo rists, and they desire it only for the purpose of establishing political an? , tagonists for men.

The Sun says: "By a maji jtjf , seventeen the house of repreaer )ea yesterday refused to take ' It. Morrison's tariff bill and m At a discussion. This is a wise coi,.lon. It would be impossible at this period of the session to give to such a bill the prolonged and minute debate and examination which would be necessary before bringing the house to a decision upon its merits.

Judge Cox, of the United States circuit court, in deciding to-day against the plaintiff In the case ot Joseph Netbercbift, vs. Collector Eobertson, of the port of New York, said that the supreme court will probably be called upon to settle the question at issue. The judge said he could not believe that congress ever intended to encourage fraud by making San Domingo a dumping ground for sugar from all parts of the world. In October, 1884, tbe plaintiff imported from Puert Plata two cargoes of sugar, on which Col lector Eobertson assessed the duties under schedule E. of the tariff of 1883. The plaintiff protested, insisting that importations of sugar from San Do mingo should be admitted free under stipulations of the treaty with that country of February 8th, 1867. Con gress subsequently imposed new duties on sugar, but In 1875 made a treaty with the Hawaian Islands by which certain articles, including sugars, were admitted free. In 1883 congress pass ed a new tariff act, but it-does not effect treaties in force between this and other governments. Civil Service Examination In Texas.
