About Cultivating Orchards.
The diverse treatment which apple
orchards receive tnroughoiu the coun
try affords a lesson showing the great
benefit of giving them the best man
agement. and the loss from neglected
treatment. Neglect is too common
and poor crops and scabby fruit is the
result. In contrast with these
neglected orchards, are a lew to which
the owners give the best attention,
and who receive good prices for the
returns of handsome fruit.
copious
One orchard of this class, which has
grown to full beaiing size, affords the
owner a handsome profit every year,
while his careless neighbors receive
not more than one-founh of his
returns. This well managed orchard
is kept in grass, which is grazed short
by sheep, the grass afforded them
being only one-hall or two-thirds as
much as would give them full feed,
the deficiency being made up with
grain or meal. This is fed to them
regularly in long board troughs. The
sheep eat every wormy apple as it
falls, and the fruit is thus kept nearly'
clear from insects. The droppings of
the sheep enrich the ground, and a
top dressing of barn manure is added
ye, rly. The sales of the fruit from
this orchard for many years have been
equal to one hundted dollars from
each acre it occupies. The shade of
the trees prevent a rank growth of the
grass, and the grazing of the sheep
gives It somewhat the appearance of a
lawn. The owners of some othtr ex
cellent oic hards, who cannot use
sheep, apply yard or barn manure
more copiously. In one of the unest
visited, the annual application of
manure had gradually made it two or
three inches deep; the result was a
superb crop of apples. Other orchards,
with less manure are kept clean and
mellow with a gang plow or Acme
harrow, to keep the surface clean and
in a finely pulverized condition.—
Conutry Gentleman,
The Care of the Hands.
The desh at the root of the nail
should be loosened and pushed back
with an ivory blade or dull-pointed
steel. It is easily done after soaking
the fingers in tepid water for about
twenty minutes This will disclose
the half moon, which in most cases,
is nearly or quite covered, which
adds greatly to the beauty of the
hands. A manicure has a tiuy pair
of scissors, which are made for the
purpose, with which he cuts away all
the superfluous flesh at the roots of
the nails, after rubbing them back.
When the nails are in good condition,
a few minutes' care and attention
daily will keep them so. Every time
the hands are washed the flesh should
be pushed back with the towel, and a
very few minutes' rubbing with a
chamois skin, with powdered pumice
stone moistened with sweet oil, will
polish the nails. The finest polish is
said to be given by hand polish,
which the manicure gives to a pair of
hands by an hour's polishing. Water
can be easily softened with a few
drops of ammonia, or, what is better,
small piece of lump borax: warm
water, into which enough borax has
been dissolved to make the water feel
little slippery when pressed be
tween the thumb and finger is very
good for washing the hands. Many
people who do not work wash the
hands but seldom. The day's ac
cumulation of dirt is allowed to re
main on the hands all night. Upon
arising, the hands are washed in cold
water. The possessor wonders why,
when she does not work, her hands
are not white.

PAIN'S GRAND SPECTACLE.
It Has Proven the Success of the Sea
son at Lincoln Park.
The performances already given of
Pain's mammoth pro-spectacle at
Lincoln Park have fully demonstrated
that it is the greatest production ever
presented to a Philadelphia audience.
Thousands of persons have seen it
during the past week, and there lias
not been one dissatisfied individual
among them. In fact the Lincoln
Park Company has been warmly
praised for securing such a great
attraction, especially at such a small
expense to the public.
Several new specialty acts have
been added to the first scene incident
ally for the edification of the Mikado
of Japan, who is holding a reception,,
but in reality for the vast audience
in front.
After these are concluded the scene
changes to the shores of China in
front of the fortification of Wei-Hai
Wei and the troubles of the Orientals
begins. A fierce battle rages, rifles
spurt forth their death dealing bullets
in (juick succession, the calvary cuts
down their enemies, the bicycle corps
pick off the Chinese one oy one, the
cannon belch forth their dread mes
sengers of death, and the war vessels
in the harbor fire bomb after bomb
into the fortification, blowing up one
portion after another until all are
destroyed and the garrison capitu
lates.
The battle over, the victory won,
then comes the magnificent display of
fireworks, such as only Pain knows
how to give. This includes water
volcanoes, flying geyseis, golden rain,
sea serpents, revolving suns, carpet
patterns, immense revolving wheels,
interchanging squares, fountains,
bombs, rockets, candles and batteries,
the whole concluding with a bouquet
of hundreds of rockets
The beautiful fairyland illumination
is still continued Monday, Thursday
and Saturday nights, and all the
amusements are running every day.
Steamers run hourly during the week
from Race and Christian streets,
Philadelphia.

Salt for Hogs.
A correspondent gives sflme inter
esting experience which he claims to
have had in the use of salt in fatten
ing swine. He selected two pair of
barrow hogs weighing ioo pounds
apiece. One pair received with thoi:
daily ration of food two ounces of
salt; the other pair, similarly fed, got
none. In a week it was easily seen
that the salted pair had far stronger
appetites than the others, and then
the ration of salt was increased to two
ounces each. After four months the
weight of the salted hogs was 350
pounds each, while that of the uti
salted, five weeks later, was only 300
pounds each. The experiment was
repeated with almost the same result.
He salts hogs according to age. a
quarter of an ounce daily to breeding
sows, very little during pregnancy,
and in the heat of summer withholds
it to a degree from all. as it induces
thirst and liability to disease.
