A most extraordinary question 1 asked of Bishop Tottfr, by the Hod Hoisting Engineers Union, states th New York Independent. It is whether, if n church or cathedral be built by non-union men, it should bo attended by union worshipers?

Times re marks: So long as the retail price of the bicycle remained at a figure which tuale it possible for any mechanic with a bench and a bug of tools to buy the different parts of a machine, put them together, aud Bell the finished product at a good profit, the multipli cation of small bicycle factories was bound to continue. Now the time has come for them to quit. The bicycle business is likely to follow the same course as tho sewing machine busi ness According to the Springfield Be publican circulars have been rent out by Homo bureau of Htatistics to the Nebraska farmers asking "Does farm ing pay?" As well ask "Is life worth living?" The actress Janauschek once opened her season iu Rochester, N. Y., and an interviewer asked her why she had thii3 complimented Rochester rather than some other city. "Mein Gott!" answered Janauschek, "I haf to begin somevare." So men have to live, and the farmers have to farm whether it pays or not. In that as in all other undertakings it all de pends on the individual aud his meth ods. A new scheme looking to the adop. tion of an international language comes from Russia. The inventor of "Es peranto," a manufactured speech, an alogous to "Volapuk," L. Samenhof, of Grodno, invites all who have ideas on tho subject to send him an article em bodying them. He will have these printed and copies sent to each of the writers. The latter must read all the articles and then write another very brief essay embodying his final judg ment. The scheme would be a prac tical demonstration of the necessity of an international language, but we doubt whether it will settle the ques tion of the choice- of such a common speech. The discovery of gold in Alaska opens up a rich field for the swindlers and already signs are at hand, notes the Washington Star, that the confi dence men of all stripes are at work utilizing this latest inspiration to the acquisitiveness of the human race. It is going to be a hard experience for the miners themselves, if but half the warnings that have been given of dan gers in the Yukon region are well founded, but unless the stay-at-homes keep a pretty sharj eye on the main chance and refrain from long-distance speculation in the gold fields except upon first-class authority there will be equivalent distress at this distance from the cold aud the hunger of the Alaskan wastes.

If domestic peace and love could bo purchft"d with money, what a price, it would brin, und yet it can be bad without money if eery number of the family would do rijjht. I wus ruminating about thii and wondering if ven the devil w nt mean enough to take pleasure iu destroying the peace of a household. The book of Job does not iiiako him that mean, for Job Hiifiercd no sorrow from any bad conduct of wife, or child ren. Satan rants worshipers, and even dared to try to (-educe tho Savior to his ullegiance; but he did it in nti opon and manly way, and lost He is an adversary a bad one a powerful one ever t-ince he was thrust out f heaven; but according to scripture ho has not yet lost his power or hit con sequence, for the Lord talked to him in Job and the Savior had a conference with him in Mathew, and Michael, the archangel. had u dispute w ith him about the body nf Moses. He is n bold, self poise 1, delimit spirit and uses many arts: to deduce mankind from their allegi ance; but surely he wouldn't take away and destroy the only bliss of paradise Hint is left us. He hasent done it from Ingersoll, for that notable man has a most loving household, and so have many infidels and atheists and skep tics. My opinion is that our original sin has more to do with bad conduct than the devil. We are born to sin as the sparks tly upward, and the devil urges us on and apologizes for every mean thing we do and tries to comfort us, but I believe that it is in the power of every man and woman and son and daughter to preserve the family peace and to make home the most attractive place upon the earth. Then, why don't they do it? It sickens us with sorrow to read the family troubles in the daily papers. Sometimes it is tin,' husband, sometimes tho wife, some times the daughter, but oftener than all together it is the son that brings the blight aud darkens the doors and makes parents aud sisters seek to hide from the gaze of men.

Every day there is a new case somewhere mur der, suicide, embezzlement, and all is mixed up with the jails and courts and pictures in the papers aud the misery of kindred and the world's cold criti cism. How many families that once moved proudly with the social swell ing throng have retired from it to grieve over the crushing fate of a way ward son or a daughter's shame. How many families have been broken dow n by reckless sons-in-law. I know some I ii i ageu parents v.iiose nair lias grown prematurely gray, whose brows are furrowed with lines of sorrow and whose smiles are always sad, if they smile at all. Young men, please stop and think. The happiness of home is worth mill ions of dollars. It beats tho Klondike, ami is right close by, and no frozen hills to cross. The pleasures of a happy home excel anything upon earth, and can be had so cheaply if father aud mother and children will make 'it so, "He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind." A fross husband, a contentious, com plaining wife, a selfish son or an in dolent, discontented daughter can de stroy the peace of t e household. There are some things that are worth so much they cannot be valued. Health of body is one of them, but pence of nund is worth more than that. Sonic years ago there was a verdict rendered in our court, at Home giving .$:5.,00U to a young man because of a fall from tho train at night and n permanent injury to his spine. Re was a man of brilliant mind and high ambition and splendid prospects, but the doctors testified that ho would be a mental wreck, and his eloquent lawyer drew such a sad picture of the wreck that the jury gave this largo amount as compensation. No bones were broken, nor did he suffer any pain. He walked about and visited his friends, and showed no sign of imbecility, but his mental force was impaired, his high ambition gone, and this verdict was only an ap proximation of the damage. What, then, is the peace of a family worth? Not merely peace of mind, but of heart, for the heart outranks the mind as the mind does the body.

Tor three years I have had a mil plat of a 'fulfil in what it known nurd land or heavy soil, iu distinctiorrom tho li'ht soils, these containing ore or less sand. It is part of a little valley of fo(- to fihtv rods in width, iilonir a erv small water eours, that can be alost crossed at one step. One-half iired clay limb l laid with red shale. ter can usually be found in this shaliit a depth of five to ten feet. The her half lays about two feet higher an the soil is of a chocolate color. The lower red soil has nroi'ced about twice the amount of alfal of that of the upper darker soil all is not so much ell'ecled by dry w eiiier. It might be said that this re soil would hardly produce corn whil the other would be the best we ave, though not nearly so good for cm as lighter soil, while the red is thibest for wheat, oats and sorghum. The past two ynrs have beeidry, but it takes the third year for alf;:fa to reach its best. The first year i was cut twice, the cuttings being lit on the ground. The second year i was cut three times perhaps aggregatng at the rate of a ton and a half pel acre. This year it was in full bloom tiifl just ready to cut when the hail of ay 12 cut it closer than the mower would have done. Iu just one month it was ready to cut again and made at least at the rate of a ton of cured buy per acre. It will have to be very reasonable if it does not yield two more crops before our usual frost time. This year will ive a fair idea of its profitableness.

The Secretary of Agriculture is testing, through the meteorological bureau department, the theory of French, Italian and German scientists that the volume of crime, notably sui cide, is determined by atmospherio conditions. This year the number of suicides has been extraordinary. The record will surpass the statistics of several consecutive years. In all the large cities of the country the suicides have appeared in large force. Poison ing, shooting, drowning, have been alio usual methods of "shuttling off this mortal coil," while not a few have preferred to be pulverized under the clanging wheels of heavy railway trains. The Secretary of Agriculture should by all means pursue his inves tigation. It will certainly be some thing gained if Ave can establish the theory he is working upon as solid fact, i. e., that, after all, crimes of violence and all crimes are prompted by a peculiarly moist condition of the atmosphere; that a condition of great heat and humidity induces that left spiral movement of the molecules of the brain which impels a human being to envy, hatred and malice and all uncharitableness; yes, even murder or self-destruction, according to tho eminent biologists to whom man is but a mechanical arrangement, a for tuitous concourse of atoms and thought, emotion, passion, but exudations of secretions like bile. Clover XVlth Sin-lnjj Grain. It always pays to sow clover with ispring gram. Jn a fuvorablo season, s tho present has been, there will probably bo a good seeding of the ilovcr. In that case it will be well in September, or perhaps earlier than his if rains continue, to sow timothy o as to make with the clover a per manent seeding. But even if the lover seeding has been a partial fail Ve, enough of it will have rooted to lake a growth that will much more tan pay for the cost of the seed, even iiit bo plowed under as green nia- nre. There is probably no such in cuase iu mauurial value anywhere as frm the clover seed put into the gmind and the plant that comes from it. In bulk, the grain of mustard, xv hcli grows into a tree largo enough forthe birds to lodgo in its branches, masurpass the clover. But in ma nural value, counting the fertilizing effet of the clover roots in the sub soil, a grain of clover is worth more than the biblical grain of mustard seed Itlvas a good farmer from whom we leaned this advice to always sow clo ver s-ed in the spring, even though Slierp IliaeiKP ami Tlirir IlneP tlr-. Bel haps there is no other domestb animal that suffers so much from para sites ns the sheep. First, of course, comes the sheep-tick. They are on almost all sheep and are so common that many people seem to regard them ai unavoidable cud as natural to sheep as the wool itself. But let even half a dozen ticks get on u thoughtless shep herd and bite all nt once, und he will begin to realize the agony of the young lamb with a thousand m him, as is often the case just after tho sheep are sheared. They are all there for blood and they get it as long as there is cno'.'.gh'let't to pay for boring. Ono tick on u man, says Coleman's Rural World, w ill cause him to suspend all oth er labors until he gets it off, and if ho believes that a sheep basso little sense of feeling that she can be comfortable with a tick gnawing nt every square inch, he should have regard enough for his poi ket to stop feeding so mauy mouths that give no income. Sheep are often so reduced in i'esh and strength by these pests alone that they are supposed to be afllicted with somo strange epidemic; and they are more liable to other maladies than if they could have the benefit of nil the food they eat. The next most painful affliction i& perhaps caused "by grubs in the head. Any person wliohas dissected a sheep's head or seen their skulls lying about has noticed a long, thin, parallel plate of bone reaching from the nose upward. It is between these plates that the larva of the gadfiy find lodging and food. They are where the sheep can apply no force to expel them by either sneez ing or coughing, aud are a constant source of irritation and pain. The pressure of these in indicated by dis charges which keep tne sheep s noso filthy and by attempts to sneeze ac companied by distressing sounds. A low condition of the blood, whether caused by ticks or intestinal worms, is often shown first in dullness of tho eyes aud watery swellings below the jaws. For dissecting a sheep Profes sor James Law gives tho following di rections: "Open up tho nose and all connecting cavities in the head; all tho air passages in the lungs; all the gall ducts in the liver; the stomach and the whole length of the intestines; in the latter case look carefully for the smallest threadlike xvorms from one fifth inch and upward in length. Treat ment will vary with the species ot par asite and its habitat." The same authority recommends the following treatment for various troubles: For grub m the head: lithe trouble is xvith grubs about the pass ages of tho head, the sheep may bo turned on its back with the nose ex tended and into each nostril may be poured one ounce of a liquid made by mixing a teaspoonful of benzine m a quart of water. Repeat this daily for a week. A more enective, though a more dangerous, plan is to bore with a trephine or gimlet through the oiiter plate of bone on the rounded elevation on the forehead to the inner side of iliAi-;i"wnQ n. rnn 'uiii nl it a pertnintv ll'i". that priug grain stubble would be each eye, aud with a syringe and tepid . i ti i . ;.-i.-. : i i.- 1. 1. i rni, piowei in laii ior some wiuier gram In one season out of three, the farmer said, the spring grain seeding will be too guxl to be plowed up for any further chauces. Iu the other two seasons there would still be enough clover to much more than repay the cost of seed, even if it were plowed under s green manure, in everv case the clover growth took the place of some weed that xvould bo worth less than itself as a fertilizer. So every time tho fanner sowed clover seed it was with the result of increas ing soil fertility, which is the capital on which the farmer must rely for hi3 profits. j The fact that to have plenty of clo- water to wash out the cavities. Tho water aud grubs will flow out through the nose. Then finally a teaspoonful of the benzine mixture may be injected on each side and left in the cavity. For lung xvorms: Shut the flock into a close room and burn sulphur, piuch by pinch, until the ai is as strongly charged with the fumes as the sheep can breathe without violent coughing or sneezing. Let them breathe this for half an hour, and repeat t daily for a week. It may then be stopped for a month, after which they should be subjected to a second week's treat ment, to kill the young worms that have bsen hatched out from the ega m the interval.
