She believes that In such n case the women students would have to put up with inferior teachers, col lections and opportunities for clini cal study and practice, with the result that people would refuse to enjage women doctors. SHE TRAINS DONKEYS. Miss Ituggles-Krlse, of Spains Hal!, r.ralntree, Essex, England, is an expert trainer of donkeys. According to Coun try Life, this lady takes a very groat --Interest in her animals, and personally attends to their training r.iid general management, and the consequence of . this cure Is that the animals develop both physical and mental qualities of a most remarkable nature, for, con trary to the general belief, the donkey is very far from being a stupid ani mal. Miss Jtugslcs-15ri.se generally buys her donkeys when they are from two to three years old, and after feed ing them well for a short time she be gins their education. ' S NO CRINOLINE THEY SAY. ) The great French costumier, being Interviewed on tue question or tne crinoline, has little or no faith iii Its reintroduction. He puts no limits to the vagaries of fashion, but. he does not think it at all likely that the ca pacious petticoat of the Empire will fjiico more be adopted by ladies. He (ascribes the Idea of Its reappearance to the fact that the dresses worn at present are more ample than before, and that some of the dressmakers have inserted a small steel hoop at the bottom of the petticoats to give the limbs greater freedom. Messrs. Eed .,,fern, of sartorial fame, after having liven a learned disquisition on the Yyigin of the crinoline, expressed like fuse their disbelief in its restoration.

A large sqr.nl could easily sim ulate a sea serpent. Some observers see lines of porpoises; ouiers, whales in a line or seaweed, or birds, and the unskilled observer firmly believes he sees something strange and uncanny, which he assumes to be ihe sea ser pent. That there is a literal sea 'serpent is not believed by scientists, but that there may be some large and unknown, or uneaught fish, long, slender, and serpent-like, Inhabiting the ocean, at taining a large size, is not beyond pos sibility. An animal that doubtless has figured as a sea serpent is shown iu the accompanying photograph. Speci mens sixty feet in length nave been observed, and if this fish should at tain a length of seventy or eighty feet and be seen rushing along at the sur face, one could hardly picture a more remarkable "sea serpent." The sub ject of the illustration is an oar or ribbon lisli (Regalicus), and was, pos sibly, the largest ever taken in Ameri can waters. It came inshore at New port, on the Santa Catalina Channel, opposite the island of that name. An Indian was riding up the beach when lie observed a large fish in the surf, and after considerable difficulty hauled out what he supposed to be a sea ser pent high on the sands.

Th." n atter of disposing of an Infant at night Is one which, sooner or later, nearly every one has to struggle with, and, therefore, 11 discussion of the question has more or less Interest to every one. It Is not now regarded safe or sanitary to have the youngster In bed with its ciders, and yet 111 such cases where the luxury of a nurse and nr.rsevy cannot be indulged in, it Is de sirable to have ihe infant near at hand were it may be .given such attention as it demands from time to time dur ing the night. Tin invention shown herewith seems to solve the question for persons In the ordinary walks of life, and has the CIUB ATTACHED TO B D. recommendation of havfng o:e:i thought out by a woman, who probab ly knows what is needed. This ar rangement is of collapsible construc tion so that when there is no demand for its presence it can be folded or packed away in little spe.ee. It has also a novel feature, in that it is fas tened to the side of the bed, so that it reposes at its mother's elbow and the infant is as conveniently located as though it was in the tod itself. . : - VvX 'A 1 v r - .

Not one farmer in a hundred raises nil the Bnuill fruit his family can use. The fruit garden should be on good land niul near the house. The land should be well drained. A good fruit garden may mean a few less bushels of oats and corn, but the farm Is made more homelike and Is supplied with the comforts and luxuries of the table. I). C. CoiiTcrse. STRAWBERRIES EVERY VEAR. A strawberry bed should be planted every year. This will provide several beds of different ages, and some of them are likely to produce a good crop. There Is always enough plants to set a new bed, if this plan In Ufcd. A bed can be kept in bearing several years, but usuiiily it Is not. The plants are allowed to get too thick or weeds tako the intch. An old bed should be hoed Immediately after fruiting; and If the row plan is used, the row should be narrowed to sis inches or a foot. The plants in the rows should be thinned, so not too many plants will be left even in narrow rows. Turn over and pulverize the coil between the rows. The condition of the soil must deter mine how ranch manure shall be np plied. Too much manure will produce an excess of stalks and little fruit. Ii the soil lacks fertility, plenty of it, there will not be enough stalks to pro duce either a good yield or fruit of good quality. TABLE FOR HANDLING GRAPES, I have seen large, heavy tables for this work in many grapehouse3, upon which the grapes were emptied from the troys to be sorted, trimmed and placked into baskets. I do not favor this method of treating grapes. I think the less they are handled the better.

"There is no ironclad rule that can be applied intelligently to ail hinds of tree fruits, or, in faer, to any one kind; no two trees are just alike, nor can they bo made so with the best and most ap proved sclent re. skill or management. As a matter of fact, ouch tree has, so to speak, an individuality and forma tion of its own and should be pruned accordingly. When the trees receive annual treatment, and', have been brought into the proper shape by ju dicious pruning and attention, the only pruning afterward needed is to re move any branches that are crossing or Interfering,. with each other . and keep the head in symmetrical shape Mid well open to the sun, light and i;!?.
