ALL ABOUT HOP-PICKINO.
A llu.iur.s That la Trnfllable and Anar Inc aa Wall. No agricultural business has so much risk a£ that of hop picking, and in none of them are the returns so large, writes a correspondent from Water ville, N. Y. It costs but six cents to produce a pound of hops, and it is a poor year when the price does not reach twenty. The greatest care must be paid by the grower to the plant from the time the bulb is placed in the Aground until the crop is matured, har vested and dried. The w urra is the greatest enemy of the plant. About the best remedy so far discovered for getting rid of the pests is the extract of tobacco stems diluted'in warm water and applied to the plants by means of a pump and hose. Paris green has been tried with out success, tho insects seeming to relish the taste of the poison. Tur keys aro very good protectors of the young plants, and nearly every hop grower has a large flock. Early in the morning they may be seen going through tho yards stopping at each plant and critically examining tho un der side of each leaf, where tho worms most do congregate. As tho season waxes long tho turkeys get fat, but it is a rank fatness that is not agreeable, and so (hey have to go through a diet of corn before they are fit to eat. When the hops roach »height of two or three feet the time for "poling" has arrived. Cedar poles about twenty feet in length are used for this purpose, being driven into tho ground three inches from tho plant. The sprigs are then trained around those poles, carefully turning them to tho right. It is a singular fact that they will grow no other way than to ward the setting sun. Another singu lar tiling about the Holds is the pres ence of tho male plant. Several of these will be found in every yard. In appearance they are similar to the females, except in tho vory important particular that they do not bear hops. However, no field yields well without its quota of so-called "barren hills." Carefully tended and reared by the ever-watcliful farmer tho vinos grow to a height of eighteen or twenty feet, and should Ceres provo propitious, as she has this past season, tho harvest time comes and tho dark green branches yield a plentiful supply of sweet-scented buds. Tho hops are picked into oblong wooden boxes containing four apart ments, e:ich of which holds about seven bushels. Kunning between tho compartments and over tho box is n ridge-pole. The box is movable and as the hops aro picked from around it is transferred to a new "set" further into tho unpicked portion of tho yard. To every two boxes there belongs a pole-puller, whose business it is to keep tiie pickers supplied with work. He cuts tiie stalk of tho vine at tho bottom and then with the help of a "deg" draws tho polo with his clinging vines from tho ground. It is carried to the box, the vines aro stripped and placed upon a table between two boxes und within easy reach of tho pickers. An average day's picking is two boxes, though some of the fast workers pick double that number. From the fields tho hops are carried In sacks to tiie kiln, generally nearby. A hop kiln has throe rooms, two on the first floor and one above. The lat ter is the drying-room, and tho two former are respectively tho storeroom where the hops are kept after curing and tiie rooms where tho fires are kept going'. This is separated from the dry ing-room above by a thin partition of laths and cotton cloth. In it is a large stove and a series of pipes. The at mosphero is kept at about lHOdegrees, and it takes about twelve hours of this te dry the hops spread out on tiie floor of the drying-room. When tho doors are opened in tho morning and the hot ait- allowed to escape the green buds of yesterday have colored into a beautiful golden brown. There is a difference in ttle weight also—for tiie 2,500 pounds that were put in fresh from tho vines but 250 are taken out. The rest es caped through the cowl in the roof, Tito work is now almost done and tho grower lias only to bale his hops and send them to market when it suits his pleasure to do so. Ho watches tho quotations carefully, and when in his judgment the price has reached tho highest notch he sells and takes a well earned rest.—Detroit Free Press. ,, —"I have made it a rule, said a! . . , . , busybody at the lunch-table tho other , . dav to the man on Ins left, "never to , , „ meddle with another man s business ' "Hmt s right perfectly right" "But 1 see you have a new confidential clerk "Yes, Bir-yes."

MAKING RAILROAD MAPS.J A Description of the Methods Now ln Um I n the United Slates, The method of making railroad maps ts described as follows: Up to 11470 maps were engraved on stone, copper or steel. The process was slow, te dious and expensive. The plates soon wore out, and maps were costly. About this time the process of making maps on wax was invented. It revolu tionized one kind of map-making, and they became almost as cheap as news papers. The mii|>-maker works in a room the temperature of which can not go below 90". Few men work at it longer than four years, though years of apprenticeship are required to muke them expert. The heat be comes unendurable in the end, and they go into some other employment. Preparatory to making the original plate, melted beeswax and some hard ening ingredients are poured on a highly polished mctul table. For line work the wax is as thin as a piece of paper, but for tho coarser kind tiie waxen sheet is an eighth of an inch thick. Hough pen and ink drawings of the work to be done are given tho operators. They draw the hair lines with sharp pointed instruments by the aid of straight edges. The doted lines Indicating county or township bounda ries aro mado with little wheels, on whoso narrow edgo aro cut the pecu liarly designed lines. All crooked lines aro mado by hand, and require an artist's eye. Tho names of towns, rivers, countries and the like are im pressed in tho wax in typo, letter by letter. Every impression must cut through tho wax to tho polished steel plate beneath, for the map is made face down. When all tho linos and letters aro in, the wax is placed under a cooler temperature, whieh hardens it. The wax is then covered with blnck load, and tho stool plate with its waxen cost is suspended in an oloctro typing solution. The copper in tho solution covers tho black lead and forms a hard plate, which is called the original. The wax is then pullod off and the printing surfaco is then pre sented. The tin copper plate is backed up with typo metal and tho plato is ready for use. It is usually preserved, however, for tho making of stereotype plates, from which the actual printing is done. In the preparation of the etching great care iB required to keep tho wax at tho proper temperature, as a degree too low would make it hard to work, and a degree too high would molt und probably destroy it. Often many hun dred thousand maps are ordered, and from twenty to forty plates are mudo from tho original. If tho maps aro amall, so many of these plates as can bo conveniently used are placed side by side on the presses, and a sheet of maps is printed at each impression. Tho ordinary advertising map is fin ished when it leaves the press, but tho others must go through more hands before they aro ready for use. Hut this is tho smallest p^rt of the map. Tiie unseen work —tiie preparation of the original draft—represents time, labor and money expended upon theso ar ticles. The method of preparing maps for places of learning and for the use of those engaged in selling property is much more elaborate and costly, and this fact will bo fully realized when it is stated tViat a map lately finished in this city measuring sixty-five inches square, was nearly six years under way, and, when finished, cost $20,000. —Philadelphia Call. One of the largest millers in tho United States, C. A. Pillsbury, is cred j ited with assorting Unit American , millers do not dampen their wheat be i fore grinding it. This is correct of some millers, but not of all, and ttio reason is not attributable to différ j ences in millers, but to differences in j wheat. Most of tho California wheat ' ground in this State is moistened, be | cause it is found necessary to do so. On tho other hand Oregon wheat will not staud dampening, as it contains enough water without this treatment. On this account local millers prefer California wheat, as they can add the necessary water for nothing, which they have to pay for in tho Oregon article. When shipped abroad or ' stored for months at tidewater, there is loss difference, as wheat whieh is j not moist will become so when in n I damp atmosphere.

A man named Medina, living near Tlalpam, on tho day of tho funeral of a child of a friend met in the street an old woman who had long passed for a witch. Ho asked her why she had caused ho death of tho infant. She replied that they would not pay wlmt she demanded. He then told her that it was useless to ask for payment. She then threatened to kill Medina's young est child. Enraged at the audacity of tho old woman, ho raised a heavy club, and, striking her over the head with it, he said: "You will, will you? Then j take that—.and that—and that!" And he beat her to death. Medina has been arrested und js in prison. He has able counsel to defend him, and will show that it was tlm universal belief that she was a witch and had power over life und death .—(lualemala Klar. them with $1,000,000, the share of tho estate they would get were lie to die. —Onions arc not of tho tilings that rurmth in the winter; a steadily frozen condition suits them better. like —Among tho twenty odd women in spectors ut the New York Custom House are a niece of Thurlow Weed and a sister of Koscoe Cockling. —Mrs. Harrison is said to be an en thusiastic and successful china painter.

Varlous Forms of salutation Among baric and Hrml-Harbarlc I'eoplaa, A striking salutation in the South Sea Islands is to fling a jar of water over the head of a friend. This may be termed a rather cool reception, but in that hot country it is probably done with a good intention. Among certain tribes of Africa the salutor relievos the saluted of his scant attiro and dons it himself. Certain writers credit the origin of this custom to the ancient practice of covering the face when in the presence of a super ior, just as the converse custom of Africa of unclothing one's self is in terpreted as an extreme form of tak '1 he custom of ing olT Hits shoes, taking oil the shoes at meeting pre vails among tiie Japanese. A submissive ami dramatic form of salutation in certain parts of Africa is where an inferior prostrates himself, face downward and arms extended, at tiie feet of his superior. The Australian natives practice the singular custom, when meeting, of sticking out their tongues at each other, Tiie salutation is seemingly inexplicable, this act with us being generally regarded as expressing de rision. In tiie Orient the salutations by ges tures vary with tho dignity of the per son saluted. We may mention that of Turkey, in which tho hand is put first to tho forehead and then to tho breast, probably implying tiie homage of the intellect and the heart. Sometimes the hand is laid under the beard of the person saluted and Uten the beard raised to the lips. It is common in Arabia Petraea to put ebook to cheek. A race known as tho Kalmucks re sort to a salute very similar to that ol the Esquimaux. They, too, rub noses, but before they reach the same spot they sink upon their knees and creep together, when the salutation culmin ates in an energetic contact of tho ol factory organs. Still another salute is that in which the (tond people pull the ears of their friends. Those may all be classed, possibly, as tniid forms of the old-time custom of embracing. It is a well known fact that the desire to possess or the sense of possession is gratified and intensified by tho embracing. Nose-rubbing, ear-pulling, etc., aro evidently mild forms by which, for the sake of politeness or propitiation, such desire for or sense of possession is pro fossod. Kissing, as originally prac tised, evidently arose from desire to ! Thus it is re- • give rather than take, luted Unit in some of the South Sou is lands they spit on their hands and then rub the face of tho complitnonted per son. A feeling that actions speak louder than words probably gave rise to the practice of saluting by gesture, if we go bnek to tho ages when words were fewer and the language less expressive than now, we will find Unit such salut ations were more manifold and more i frequently indulged in. giving a vivid representation of the feelings and do .—llostoa Herald. sir i KCxtin- 1 i respecting the duties of 1 , ... . , . j women, to which we wish to pay some , degree of attention.
