STATISTICS CONCERNING SMILES Ju Englishman of scientific pursuits has recently published a series of sta tistics concerning smiles which will as tonish the average layman and lay woman. On an average, he calculates, a woman stretches her mouth, half an inch each time she smiles. Allow ing her thirty-six smiles a day which every man familiar with the subject will accept as a conservative estimate ; "V',,r,r smile measurement would amount V ' twenty-four hours to half a yard, sjd in the course of a year to 182 ' vards of smiles. This is strlctlv an average computation, however. A bride, the newly elected President of a woman's club, a man with a new auto m!ile or a new pet of teeth these will vrenthe you many more yards of swsjb'-s in the course of a twelvemonth than a paltry 182. Th? relation which these smiling statistics bear toward the art of living Is not quite clear. So far as practical value goes, the man who finy discovered that smiles bred rinkles did a vastly more serviceable ing. Many a woman tries to sup- rcss her smiles m tne interest or nor skin. Expert information as to the number cf yards she smiles a year will Lave the effect only of redoubling her anti-smile vigilance, and the world will be so much the poorer. In any event, ' ".the conclusions of the English scientist , Ve offered merely for what they may i b worth. u. ? HOW TO DRESS.

Per sia and Morocco, the women guests hold carnival all day, s metimes sev eral days, but the poor little bride Is in a room .by herself fasiinp .She Is being "decorated." 1 'epilatories and tweezers remove all superfluous hair. She is serubbtd with pumice stone; her toes, lingers and hair stained with henna, and her face daubed with red and bits of gold paper. An Oriental maiden has no voice in the selection of her husband. She sel dom sees li i in till she is his wife, and he is not. supposed to see her face until 1 she unveils after the marriage. Some- Z1 times Cup id gets ahead of parents and guardians, the "wind" blows the veil aside, and young eyes meet. Then there is some anxious maneuvering that the elders may make the right selection. The "rending the face" rail "eyes with painting." mentioned in the Bible, are still practised by Arabian and other Oriental women. A bodkin of oranse wood, charged with black powder, is thrust along between the closed oytlids, giving a languorous depth to the eyes. Oriental women are very graceful whiie young and not too fat. Their dances are like the Delsarte move ments, but all are done on the fepace of a rug by only one dancer at a time. If men are present the dancer remains veiled, unless they are husband, father or brother. In Arabia the women cook squatting on the ground, with several earthen "fire pots" and many cooking utensils of the same red fire clay all around them. They use charcoal, camels' dung, dried cactus and aloe leaves to work with. It is slow work, but the results are appetizing. In many parts of Asia and Africa young girls are fed on raw cakes made of meal and oil, which give them the required plumpness. They must also drink quantities of buttermilk. They have lovely complexions. An Oriental woman doubts her hus band's love unless he beats her occa sionally. New York Press. In embroidered lace robes wreaths or sprays are used. Accordioncd ring spot net is one'of the pretty arrangements. Net coffee coats, as a rule, are trimmed with lace applique. Tiny buttons seem an almost neces sary embellishment to the tab.

Ruffles with five shirrings along the top are of chiffon, edged with narrow lace. Surah lir.cn has a silk finish and surah like softness, but is woven like linen canvas. There's no denying that broad lace bands around a skirt take from the wearer's height.

For forage mid pasture in the South the Iwarf Essex is the best suited. This will yield enormous quantities of good food almost anywhere in the South. Thn soil should be broken very deep. This is necessary m order to get supply room for tie deep roots to go for water and food and store water that they may find it. Again, the soil should lie very line. The roots develop in amaz ing quantities raid the vapid growth cf lii" crop (ai's for water mid food. P.adly prepared soil cannot respond. When th" si! is ready s w about four to five pounds of seed broadcast, or half that quantity in drills. P.road cast yields' the most forage, but for pasture drilling is better, as the stock can. walk between the rows raid thus tramp it 'ess. It will be ready !n about live weeks to begin to feed or pasture. If drilled ik shouid be cultivated with plow light'y. Horses, cows, sheep, pigs and poultry all do well upon it. It will furnish pasture about four months. Seed should be .guaranteed pure Dwarf Essex. Any tinin after all danger of frost is over will do to plant. Rut it grows off quicker if the ground is warm. Hungry cattle should not be allowed to eat too frely at first. Milch cows should be turned on when it is wet. An acre will feed twenty-five to forty pigs. The number will vary according to the strength of the soil. Take every other cron rape will do better if well manured. And it will pay for very heavy manuring. Every farmer will do well to plant a few acres and familiarize himself with its growth and value. Rape is not suited to making bay or silage. If impru dently fed it sometimes causes bloat. If too much is given to milch cows the milk will be somewhat affected. If it is pastured it will pay to divide the field and pasture part at a time. Stock should not run on it when the ground is wet. llor ItnlsiiiK Soulli. In the last few years the high price of meat has drawn the attention of our people to raising hogs and only in a small way it has been done eco nomically and at a profit. I am an extreme cotton planter, but have al ways given much attention to hogs, cattle and grass. Let the croper make ail the cotton be ean, for it is all he will successfully do on the farm. Then if you are a large landowner, raise all the grain, bay and meat you can. You can get their labor cheaply when they are not needed in the crop. Make them plant almost exclusively cotton and sell 'hem their rations and horse feed. Give all your idle and spare lime to your stock and grass. To be a success ful stock-raising and hay farmer you must have knowledge, and that can be acquired hero only by long years of experience, a thorough reading of our Southern papers. You must know what kind of grass and grains to sow that is suitable to our climate and soil. To raise hogs cheaply you must hive good grazing for them every day in the year. Plant your corn next to your summer pasture, plant ground peas in the drill of your corn ami fill all water furrows with peas and have your corn field as fenced. For summer pasture you must have Red Clover, Johnson grass, Mellelotus and Rerinuda. Mel lelotus and Red Clover will furnish you good grazing in February. Johnson grass in March and Rermuda all through the summer. Then pull your corn last of September and turn your bogs in your ground peas and field peas. As soon as they cat up one field sow it in grain early in October. Then put your breeding sows in your grain fields July with their pigs. Leave them in them tiil last of March; take them off and as scon rs grain is in the IP na T put 1' one: raal let again in i fv,J p iibrraily. They A '. v ti: o-i'v !.- 1 f 1 c !.

The g-"eral ciiiicista iff the rc"t pruning plants that has been so prevalent in agricultural literature in recent years has ami' harm la one way. It is all wry true that plants need their routs, and lots of barm lias been done by deep, clos" cultivation late in th" season: but on the other hand, far worse things can bafal! a plant than that of Pining some s-ide-ro:its pruned off early In its period of growth. Ore of these things is t have its funis form too near the sur face of the ground on account of ex cessive rainfall tilling lh' pores of tie soil with water. Another is to have the soil benaith the surface left eoin I act by reason of the heavy rains that 'usually fa'l in the spring lnorlhs. Our old soi's incline to pack unless so. Is and manure have been used most free ly, and' when they have packed after 'hn pPu.ting. and rains saturate the around, the young plants throw out their rents too near the surface. In such a case it is too business of cul tivation to oi'cn all the soil, admit air and enco-.'-age deener rooting just as soon as 11: ground is dry enough for tillage. T'nder nearly all circumstances the first cultivation of corn and pota toes, excepting that given by the har row and weeib-r. should ba deep and close to the pleads. Let the siu'face roots be nrmied more good than harm is done in 1ho operation. There is an old saying. "A dry June for corn." and it is based in part lmon the nilvan'age that comes from deep rooting. Peon tillage is good tillage when plants are small, while surface cultivation is equallv right later in the season, when a mulch for holding moisture is all that is needed, and plant-roots should be undisPiirbed. Farm and Fireside. Soil CoIitv i;iilrpa. Celery plants may now be set out from the s;ed bens. Celery requires rich, moist soil in order that the growth may be quick or the stalks wiil not be tender. Make the land rich with well rotted farm-yard manure, which may be supplemented with a fertilizer hav ing seven per cent. ef ammonia, live per cent, phosphoric acid and eight per cent, potash. The land should be deeply broken and cultivated finely. The plants should be set out about six inches apart, so as to grow closely and exclude the light and thus help in bleaching the stalks. If tlie variety grown is not a self-bleaching variety the plants should be set in rows five feet apart, so as to allow banking the soil up to the plants to bleach them. When setting out in rows Ave always set two rows of plants about six inches apart in each row and they can then be earthed up together. As the plants grow a little soil should be drawn to them at intervals so as to keep the plants from spreading out. and then when fully grown be earthed up to the top. When banking the soil up to Iho plant hold the stalks of each plant close together so as to keep the soil out of the hearts of the plums. If cel ery can be set out where it can be ir rigated it wiil be a great advantage, as it succeeds well with frequent irri gation. Southern Cultivator. A Tonic Vnr SwIjip.

The mixture should be kept in a strong box protected from rain, and the eager ness and frequency with which nigs will visit and eat of the mixture wiil often be surprising. The following Is the mixture thai we use: Charcoal, one and ne-'ia!f bushels; common salt, four pounds; hard w, od ashes, ten .pounds; slacked lime, foar pounds. Fresh water, shade in sum mer, grain food when on grass, and dry bed free from dust, shelter in win ter, and above all when confined have Ihe area sufficiently large so that it will not become foul with droppings and mud bogs. These are essetaial for successful hog raiding. R;. -tr.omP Paste eL ion rought near n elia- nai spar' e: i A I J T '.

CROP PLOWED FNDER. The green crop plow ed under is cnni. piM'il of tlot e chief parts. About four fifths of It is water, or from eighty to eighty-right per ci nt.; about one-fiftieth of the whop, or two per cent., is com posed of what is calle 1 the ash grrilients, and the r-st is tin- so-called organic matter. This organic matter, which Is really the most useful part of the green manure, makes up, there fore, about n twelfth of the whole ma put under the ground. PLANT WHEN CROFND IS WARM. Roots, carrots and parsnips should be planted as soon as the ground i.s sufficiently warm, as they requiri) plenty of time for growth and are hardier than beans er tomatoes. The seed should lioi be covered more than half an inch deep, and a little roller should pass over the rows, after the seeding. In order to firm the earth. I'se plenty of seed, nnd then thin out the plants after they have attained sulliclent growth, (live plenty of rconi between the plants to allow of the us' of iho hoe. For the table there should be early and late mowing of brets. FERTILIZERS FOR GRAPEVINES. The use of rich animal or other nitro genous manures on grapevines should be avoided, as they causa too rapid growth of vine; immature growth is liable to mildew nnd rot to an Increased extent, and makes a poorer quality of grape. Potash and phosphate are val uable for fertilizers in the vineyard. Ashes supply the first and a fair i amount of tlie second ainl mir.er.il phosphate the third. Rouulust is good, but contains nitrogen, which some times in wet seasons makes a rank growth of vine. The grape does not require the application of fertilizers as frequently as do other fruits. If the1 soil Is suitable, and not too droughty, the grape will grow with but the aid of a small outlay for fertilizers. TESTING FOR PLANT FOOD. One of the simplest methods of as certaining what plant food is needed in a soil is to test the soil with a growing plant. If the soil Is deficient In nitro gen the leaves of grasses and cereal grains will be either bluish or yellow ish, the latter in the case of the grain, while a deep, vivid green indicates a good supply of nitrogen in tfier soil. Any soil in which rape, cabbages and other members of the turnip family thrive indicates that such soil has a good supply of phosphoric acid. Where potash in the soil is abundant the leave's of the growing plants have a ' yellowish green cast, while if potash is deficient the shade of green is of a blu ish color. Naturally it requires a prac ticed and observant eye to determine accurately these things, but the plan is correct and worth following. The indi cation of sorrel in a meadow seedcel to mixtures such as redtop, timothy and clovers, is a pretty good Indication that the soil needs lime. However, the lit mus paper test for acid soil is the quickest and is thoroughly reliable. Indianapolis News. PROPAGATING CURRANTS. ' The usual method of propagating cur rants Is to make cuttings of the new wood in the fall or early winter and keep them in a trench or in the soil for planting in tlie early spring. The ma jority of such cuttings Avill strike root and grow. A much better way. how ever, to my mind, and one which will give the gardener a start over the above method of half a season's growth, and one by which not a cutting will be lost, is to make your cuttings along the last of August after the wood is pretty well grown, yet somewhat soft and sappy. Plant immediately in well drained'soil in nursery rows. The trench nut hod is the simplest, and a good puddling at time of planting will Insure rooting. In e'ase of a drought following, which is not likely, thre'o or four buckets of water, run down a hoe furrow alongside the slips will irrigate, fifty plants. During the fallowing six weeks the cuttings will strike out vig orous roots, and the following spring, instead of being "cuttings" they will be sturdy plants ready to leave out and lake full advantage of the earliest spring sunshine ami warmth. My first practk'al experiment with August emr rant cuttings was the sticking in the. ground and tramping tight of a shoot accidentally knocked off the parent bush. The ground was dry and I never expected the slip to live. It died, ap parently, after a few days, died the death, but when I happened to notice it ten days later it bad braced up strong and healthy, ami when I pulhM it up in October to observe- its progress it had a fine long root system.
