The scientific culture of grass Is a natter which has not received the at iMttieu It deserves from Western turn era. The Kansas Ro.ird of Agilcultun is endeavoring '<> interest the farmed iu this matter, and its last report con tains tin 1 result of extensive Investiga tions into forage and fodders. "Kansa> Is grass' empire," says the Secretary »M the board, and it was John .1. Ingalls who delivered the most eloquent peror ation ever made concerning grass, in which he said: "Forests decay, har vests perish, flowers vanish, but grast Is Immortal," and again, "it bears in bla/.oury of bloom to charm the sense? with fragrancy or splendor, but it? homely hue Is more enchanting than the lily or the rose. It yields no fruit In earth and air, and yet, should its harvest fail for a single year, famine would depopulate the world." The most popular grass Is alfalfa, which was carried from Oldie to California about 1 Hfh't, and has since spread cast ward beyond the Mississippi. This Is still the main reliance of the trans missourl farmer. Its Introduction shows what can be done. The boou that It has been to the farmers of that section Is scarcely estimable. Hut the timothy, clover, bluegrass, ami other grasses have not been so carefully nur tured as they might be. The report of the Kansas board shows that it pays to use some care in the cultivation of these grasses and that the attention results In a liner crop that makes the efforts well worth while. The suggestion Is made that much ground that Is now left uncared for, the hay being cut with no attention to the sowing or prepar ing of the soil, might be made to yield a more abundant harvest. The Increas ing price of hay should commend this advice to farmers, for, in spite of an annual crop of nearly 70,000,000 tons, there Is no danger of overproduction. That people can Imagine themselves Into sick beds lias long been an ac cepted fact by men who practice medi cine. and the belief that the bread pill Is one of the most potent remedies In the physician's case was never more general than It is to-day. Since the be ginning of the appendicitis fad the spread of imaginary ills has been much worse than ever before. Pains in their sides now are sure to throw about three out of every live people into a terrible state of alarm. They used to disregard these tilings, but appendicitis has wrought a change, and it seems that everybody or nearly everybody now arises in the morning fully ex pecting to lie spread upon the dissect ing table betore night. A New Or leans physician, in a recent Interview on this subject, related an experience that Is worth repeating: A nervous man recently ofllleii on me (this is the doctor's story) and asked: "la what part of the abdomen an- the pre monitory pains of appendicitis felt 7" "On the left side, exactly here," I replied, in dicating a spot a little above the point of the hip bone. He went out, and next af ternoon 1 was summoned in hor Imste to the St. Charles Hotel. I' found the plant er writhing oil his bed, his forehead bead „ j . i.lj r» utitt III» »» II LT.tr itiuuis indicating intense suffering. "I have an attack of appendicitis," be groaned, "and I am a dead man! I'll never survive au operation!" "Where do you feel puin7" 1 asked. "Oh. right here," he replied, putting his finger on the spot 1 had lo cated at the ottlce. "I feel as if somo body had a knife in me there and was turning it around!" "Well, then, it Isn't appendicitis, at any rate," 1 said cheer fully; "because that is the wrong side." "The wrong side!" he exclaimed, glaring at me Indignantly. "Why, you told me yourself it was on the left!" "Then I must have been abstracted," 1 replied calmly. "I should have said the right." I prescribed something that would not hurt him and learned afterward that he ate bis dinner in the dining room the same evening. Oh, yes; he was no doubt in real pain when I called, but you can make your finger ache merely by concen trating your attention on it for a few mo ments. At first this medical gentleman would seem to have rendered a service to hu manity in showing the absurdity of the habit of Jumping at the conclusion tliat every pain In the aide la a sure sign of the presence of appendicitis, but when we stop to consider the matter we flud that he hns perhaps done more harm tlinu good. lie has so definitely located the spot at which the appeudlcitls pang may be expected to make Itself felt, thai the encouraging doubts which |ieo ple with palm* In their sides have clung to in the past must hereafter vanish from the minds of many of those who I happen to feel twinges at the fatal j point. After people generally have I found out Just how and where the trouble with the vermiform appendix usually bcglus It Is to be feared thai, we may expect a new outbreak of ap pendicitis which will be worse than any , of the previous epidemics of this pernl- j clous malady that have swept over our j glorious and enlightened country. "Hair Struck Through." The venerable Argelander. Ger many's greatest master In observation al astronomy, was the preceptor of many German and foreign astrono mers. T»r. B. A. Gould, the Americas astronomer, one of Argelamler's stu dents, related a story of his preceptor'! wit, which Prof. Newcoinb reports In the Atlautlc Monthly. Gould, while a student nt Berlin, wai beardless, but had a good head of hair. When he returned some years later h« had become bald, but had made up for It by having a full, long beard. He en tered Argelander's study without being announced. At first the astronomer did not recognize him. "I>o you not know me, Herr Profes sor'/" The astronomer looked more closely. "Ach! It Is Gould mlt his hair struck through."

Viagn, Luzon, via Manila, June 5.— .Major .March, with his detachment of tlie Thirty-third regiment, overtook what if believed to have been Agui naldo's party on May lit, at Lagat, about 100 miles northeast of Yigan. The Americans killed or wounded an officer, supposed to be Agninaldo, whose body was removed by his fol lowers. Agninaldo had 100 men. Major March IL'5, the American commander reaching La Roagan, where Agninaldo had made his headquarters since Mirch »>, on May 7. Aguinaldo had lied seven hours before leaving all tin beaten trails and traveling through the forest along the beds of streams. Toward evening, May 19, Major March struck Agui naldo's outpost about a mile outside of Lagat, killing four Filipinos and cap tmitig two. From the latter he learned that Agninaldo hud camped there for the nigiit, exhausted and half starved. Major March's men entered Lagat on the run. They saw the insurgents scat tering into the bushes or over the pla teau. A thousand yards beyond tli« town, on the mountain sido, the figures of 25 Filipinos dressed in white with their leader on a gray horse were silhouetted against the suuset. 'I lie Americans lired a volley and saw the officer drop from his horse. llis fol lowets fled, carrying the body. The Americans, on teaching the spot, caught the horse, which was richly saddled. Ulood from a badly wounded man was on the animal and on th« ground. The saddle bags contained Aguinaldo's diary and some private papers , including proclamations. One of these was addressed: "To the Civ ilized Nations." It protested against the American occupation of the Philip pines. There was also found copies of Senator Reveridge's speech, translated into Spanish and entitled: "The Death Knell of the Filipino People." Major March, believing that the Filipinos had taken to a river which is a tributaiy of the Chico, followed it for two days, reaching Tiao, where he learned that a party of Filipino* had descended the river May I'O on a raft with the body of a dead or wounded man upon a litter, covered with palm leaves. There Major March reviewed his command, shoeless and exhausted, and picked out 24 of the freshest men, with whom ho beat the sui rounding country for six days longer, but with out finding any trace of the insurgeuts. The American's pushed on, and arrived at Aparri, May J9. , The officer shot was either Aguinaldo or his adjutant, and as the horse was richly caparisoned, it is fair presunip tion that it was Aguinaldo. STILL FAR FROM QUIET. Neveral Itlnlni Itniirp* by the St. I.oult Car-Striker*. St. Louis, June 5.—-A riot of small proportions, during the progress o( which h boy was fatally shot and a ilyuamite explosion occurred, marred what would have otherwise been an uneventful Sunday. As a ear on the Tower line was passing the corner of Twelfth and Calhoun streets, a crowd of strike sytnpthizers threw rocks at it. An unknown man in the car tired a revolver into the crowd. The bullet struck J'eter Frank, I<> years old, who who was sitting in the doorway of his father's house. A detachment of police dispersed the rioters. The boy will die. At a late hour this afternoon an ex plosion of dynamite shattered the cable conduit and switches of the Olive street line, at the intersection of Maryland and Boyle avenues. No one was in* jured, but traffic on that end of the lin« had to be suspended. There is no cine to the perpetrators. More than the usual quota of police was furnished today for the protection of passengei s and crews, and as a re sult the uuniber of cars on the various lines of the Transit Company was materially increased. Oars were oper ated on 1« lines. This morning the nucleus of the first regiment of special deputies forming Sheriff I'ohlnmnu's posse comitatus, consisting of 10 companies of 00 men, each armed with shotguns, were as signed to active service in preserving order.

These powders are put up for the grocer and his name put upon the labels by manufacturers of alum pow ders. The manufacturers, it is said, find their efforts to market their goods in this way greatly aided by the ambi tion of the grocer, to sell u powder with is own name upon the label, especially when the grocer run make an abnormal profit upon it. Manv grocers, doubtless, do not know that the powders they are thus pushing •re alum powders which would be act ually oontrabraud in many sections if gold without disguise. It is quite impossiblb to give tli» mimes of all the alum baking powders lu the market. They are constantly appearing yi all sorts of disguises, under all kinds of cognomens, and at all kiuds of prices, even as low as rive and 10 cents a pound. They can be avoided, however, by the housekeeper who will bear in mind that all bakiui? powders soli at -5 cents or less per pound are liable to contain alum, a* pure cream of tartar baking powdeis cannot be produced at anything like this price. BURIAL OF SPANISH I RULERS. W«*lr<l t>r#»moiilal Custom l*reicrllM>il for ICoy a I Obnequlfii. Strange and almost weird is the cere monial which accompanies the burial of Spanish kings. The pantheon, or royal tomb, is at thepalaeeof ICscurial, situated 3,000 feet above the level of the sea and some distance from the capital. Only kings, queens and moth ers of kings are buried there, the coffins of the kings lying on cue side, and those of the queens on the other. After lying in state for several days in the throne room in Madrid, says the San Francisco Argonaut, an enormous procession is formed accompanying the body to the Kscurial. A halt is made on the way and the corpse rests there for one night. In the morning the lord high chanibei laiu stands at the side of the colliu and says in loud tones: "Is your majesty pleased to proceed on your journey?' After a short silence the procession moves on and winds up to the grand portal of the palace. These doors are never opened except fo admit a royal personage, dead or alive. When the casket containing the remains is at last placed in the vault the chamberlain unlocks it and, kneeling down, calls with a loud voice: "Senor! Henort Henorl" After a solemn pause he cries again: "His majesty does not reply. Then it is true the king is dead!" He then locks the coffin, gives the key to the prior (the palace of the Eacurial contains also a large monastry and thu church) and, taking his stall of otHce. breaks it in pieces and flings them at the casket. The booming of guns and the tolling of belli announce to the nation that the king has gone to hit final resting plaec. Saving Oneself by Service. A man wad traveling over an Alpine pass.
