I semethiag m>er Abeet AS to Its IH In a former article I referred to the importance of legaitbons nrots in the restoration of our bhad so as to make the maximum crops possible, and spoke of the southern cow pea in starting this improvement. Within the ,past five years another crop has been introduced to the notice of our farmers that promises to be the greatest aid and ally of the cow pea for the southern farmer that has yet been tested. This is the annual win ter growing clever, now knowni as crimson clover. There Is no plant that fits in so well with the cow pea as a forage crop for the south, or as a renovating crop. I have been urging the merits of this clover upon the ee.t ton farmers of the south for several years, and not only on the cottoa farm era, but on all of our farmers alike AMr. R. P. MeAnally, of Saxon, N. Ci., writes that he tried crimson clover three years ago, but it grew only nine Inches high and he discarded it. But recently he was induced to give it an other trial with the help of 800 pounds of kainmt per acre harrowed in wsith the seed, and now he reports a won derful growth-"as thick as the hair on a dog's back." This shows that ilis soil needed the help of the potash in the kanit to enable it to gather nitrogen for him. The great ad vantage to the cotton farmer In.the crimson clover crop is that he can sow it all through his cotton field after the cultivation is over in August and will have a green pasture all winter in place of a bare soil mashing away all through the winter rains, and will have a growth to plow under for corn in the spring that will insure him a good crop. Then as I have said, it fits in well with the 4 co. pea crop, for as soon as the peas are cut for hay he can sow the clover I seed on the land after stirring it with 1 a cutaway harrow, and can pasture it I till time to put the land in order for cotton. Mr. Wm. Choice, of Spartanburg,. . 1 C., writes that he had an outlying farm that he tried to sell as he had more land than he needed, but failing 4 to do so, he asked my advice how to I treat it, as the land had been badly run down under the old one-crop- 1 planting systenm. I advised him touse 1 liberally potash salts and dissolved a phosphatic rock, and sow it down in i crimson clover. lie prepared in Au- a gust a large field and did as directed. The results have been, he says. more than satisfactory. "In April, follow- a ing. the clover was in full bloom, and made a large crop of hay which was 1 1ff in time to plant cotton. Planted on the clover sod, without any other manure, and the young cotton now shows that rich, rank growth which is 1 a fair harbinger of a good crop. This i goes to show that a proper rotation, with crimson clover as the basis of re- I cuperation, will make the farm rich r and at the same time give paying :rops. Here, then, we see the effect of one well-fertilized crop of crimson clover, the hay from which futly paid all ex pense of fertilizers, in giving the prom ise of a good crop without further fer- 1 tilization. No bills for complete fer tilizers at a high price to be paid out of that cotton. This shows what I have for years been insisting upon, that the true way to fertilize for our sale crops is to use the cheaper forms of mineral plant food to grow a heavy crop of the plants that are going to p capture for us the nitrogen that costs a so much in a complete fertilizer, and thus not only get a heavy I forage crop to feed for the making of a profit out of stock, and to make our manure pile larger. but thus fix ni trogen in the land for the succeeding I crop of cotton or corn. This is in ef- 1 fect not only getting the fertilizer free for the cotton crop, but the mak lug of a profit in doing so and at the same time have the satisfaction to know that our soil is actually being improved by the process. It has been I well said that "the coming farmer of r the south will be a legume farmer." a Cow peas and crimson clover, with a 1 liberal use of the cheap potash and phosphates, lie at thie very foundation i of all rational farm improvement in a the south. I:y their aid the land need c never, either in winter or summer, be c left to the wasting of rains and sun by I lying bare, but between every hoed crop i may be covered with a growth to yield ' profit while it gathers fertility for the c land and food for the sale crops. But c it must not be assumed that these t crops will bring all the elements of 1 futility to a soil that has been ex-l r hausted by long tillage and exposure t to tire leactlingR effects of rain and sun. If you want the leguminous crops you g must feed them. They will gather t nitrogen for you free, but they can not I get the potash and phosphoric acid that the crops of former years have taken away from the soil, and with nut these are given them they can not get t:.e nitrogen they would with as well-developed growth, and you will d not only use the hay crop they would c give, but thie effect on the soil for sub- a sequent crops. Nothing from nothing t and mnthing remains. It will pay far better to put a liberal dressing of the I cheap mineral fertilizers on the pea 1 and clover cropas, thai to put the same money value in a high-grade fertilizer on the cotton crop direct, and not only pay better in the cotton crop, but in I the permanent improvement of the soil. Having these two crops then as 1 sheet anchors in our efforts to grow cotton cheaply, we will take up in our next the various rotation of crops that may be practiced with cotton as the meoney crop, or, in other words, the Sway in which we will change from planting to farming.--Cor.

Andrew H. Ward. A FRUIT HOUSE. Some flints to Tbose Who Have Fruit to (Store. In some localities it is rather difficult to secure a good cellar without consid erable work. Often draining by dig gint a trench is necessary; and, whcn this Is the case it w~ill often pay to build a fruithouse above the ground, rather than to run the risk of water flooding in and damaging the fruit and vegetables. A fruithouse, if well built, so as to be frost-proof, is much more convenient than a cellar in many ways, but good care must be taken in doing the work if good results are to be secured. Two by six-inch studding will be the best; that is, not less than this should be used. They can be placed two feet apart, and it is usually best to brace the corners. Eight feet is plenty high, and in most cases six will be sufficient. It should be built close to the ground, so that it can be banked up readily on all sides. On the outside rough boards can be nailed on first, and over this a layer of tarred paper or heavy stratr paper, and then the whole should be carefully weatherboarded. When it can be done, it will be best to fill the space between the studding with sawdust, taking care to fill ia tightly. Rough boards can be nailed on the inside, and over this tarred paper should again be tacked. Overhead a tight layer of boards should be put, and on them a good layer of sawdust. A chimney, or place sor ventilation, should be provided. ('are should be taken to make tight; the door and ventilator should be all the openings. Good, close fitting doors, one to open outside and one inside, will help. ]Boxes or bins should be built inside and about four inches away from the wall. This will give airspace between the wall and the fruit. To make doubly sure, an old stove set in the room in which a little fire may be made in the severest weater, will be found a benefit, as a very little fire will lessen very materially the danger of damage. A house of this kind, in a winter like the last one, will keep fruit and vegetables without freezi;ig, but in winters such as we sometimes have, a little fire will be necessary.

THE GREATEST KILLING. inme Men shot to Death Ia One !tight by a Gambler. In the way of prompt and deadly shooting nothing in all the red caletb. dar of homicide in the fat west beats the record of the gambler, Riley, at Newton, Kas.. made one night in 1871. The Santa Fe railroad had been built to that point during the year, and a flourishing town had grown up around the terminus to which the Texas cattle drives that had been going to Abilene were turned. One night the Texas cattle drives were in for shipment, and the cowboys were celebrating. Some of the Texans had a grudge against the officers of the town, and so they came in prepared for trouble, and they set about making itstraightway. They killed the city marshal, the deputy marshal and another man early in the evening. Later they poured into Pink ham's dance hall to the number of twenty-five or thirty. Their first break was to assassinate a harmless citizen. Riley was in the dance hall and the man just killed was a particular friend of his. Without a word Riley stepped back to the big double doors in the front of the saloon and closed them. Placing his back against the doors, he drew a pair of a revolvers and fell to shooting, one man against the crowd. Men tumbled left and right, and shots rang out all over the room in response to the cracking of Rilev's ph.tols. Shots perforated and splintered the door all about him, but he stood there firing until his pistols were emptied. Then leaping over the counter he caught up a re volver that lay on a shelf beneath and kept on with his ~flring. Before he had emptied the pistol that he found behind the bar the men inside had forced the front doors open. Those that could rushed out and Riley shot his last man in the middle of the street. When it came to counting up losses it was discovered there were thirteen dead men in the town, due to that night's shooting, of whom nine cow boys had fallen by Riley's hand. A doctor, hastily summoned to the scene, came to the side of a cowboy who was d, ing. "How is it, Doe'?" asked the wounded man. "Am I going to pull through?" The doctor shook his head and said: "I'msorry, my poor fellow, but I can not give you any hope." "'How about the man who shot me," said the cowboy, "is he dead?" "No," answered the doctor, "he was not even wounded." "I know better than that," said the cowboy. "I know he was hit I was right by the side of him when he shot me, and before I fell I fired and hit him under the arm. You examine him and you'll find that he's wounded there." When the doctor got round to Riley hie examined him and found that he had received a flesh wound under his arm, which in the ex citement of fighting he had not no ticed. Riley left the town after the in quest and didn't appear there again. Denver Field and Farm. A Mystery About Blood. There is something very mysterious about the color of human blood, or, rather, as to what causes its red color. The physiologists say that "the color of blood is due to the red corpuscles which are contained in the vein fluids," but this does not entirely cx. plain the mystery. An aggregation of blood corpuscles are red, to be sure, but in small numbers they are yellow, while one or two cramined separately are found to be a very light straw color. Why a large aggregation of these tiny discs should convey the im pression of red to our sensesM while a few show a yellow and a single speci men alight straw colar, is something that the editor of "Notes for the Cu rions" would like to see explainel- St. Louis Republic.

The existesnce of the great lakst has nltde possible the so-called northwest, since it has permitted the products of the northwest to reach asarketa at a much lower flgtre than has been psslble by all rail. from Duluth to Buffalo, eleven hundred miles, it costs about one-third as much as it costs to transship and transport across New York state. Inclkeaing competi tion from those counDries of the world possessing cheap land and cheap labor makes it imperative on the producers, the farm era of the northwest, to search out, if possible, some way of getting their crops to the eastern markets at a lower rate than they have been getting. To every producer in the northwest it will be of interest to know that on Septem bet 94-96 there Will be a convention held hi the city of Cleveland for the purpose of developing in a large way the facts relating to this deep water navigation from Iluffalo eastward. With a view to decreasing the cost, it ii necessary to use the existing lakes and river, with supplementary canals, and to reduce the cost from Buffalo nsat in some such ratio as has been se cured in the upper lakes. An eminent engineer, C. N. Dutton, who has given the matter a great deal of study, has prepared the following statements and figures, which I beg to present, with out comment, simply asking that they be read and thought on: "Sixteen great states, naimely. Ohio, Indi ans, Illinois. Kentucky, Michigan, Wisconsin Minnesota, lowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota. Nebraska, Kansas, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. must ship their sur plus agricultural products from the great lakes to the seaboard. Deep-water navigation would effect an immediate reduction in f(eight costs., and consequent increase in crop values of an average of five cents a bushel on grain and potatoes, four dollars a ton on hay and live dollars and upwards a ton on straw.

This movement has received the in dorsement of most of the United States senators from the west. Last winter the legislature of Minne sota memorialized congress in support of this measure. Senator McCleary, of Mankato, is gathering data from Canm ada and the United States with a view to urging it in the narthwest and in congress. The east has no transportation ques tion. Hier manufactured goods, worth perhaps thousands of dollars a ton, are not perceptibly affected by a slight dif erence in freight. The farming dis tricts of the west are vitally affected when all profit in their crops is eaten up by the carrying charges. As a na tional question it should be borne in mind that the manufacturing east re ceives her raw products largely from the west; also her cheap food supplies. In turn she finds her best market in the farming states of the west. It should also be remembered that the enormous cash balance annually required abcad to settle the foreign exchange mungt be provided in the main by the western and southwestern farms or by gold. The pressure is urgent. The naviga tion cannot be provided soon enough if commenced now. The convention at Cleveland will be marked by the pres ence of many specialists with specially prepared papers covering a wide range of public matters. As chairman of the executive committee, I respectfully re quest correspondence with commercial bodies, public oicdals and the papers, if in any way it may lead to fuller in formation and a quickened interest. In particular, I desire assurances of sup. port which can be shown at the proper time as evidence of popular sentiment. Address, A. L. COCKzrs, Minneapolis Board of Trade. OUR NATIONAL WEALTH.
