Ihilthnurc Aimrifaii. Mr. Garrett's Wealth. Mr. (iarrett himself has said more than once during the past few months to gentlemen intimately concerned with business nll'airs iu which he was prominent that he had so provided and arranged in bis will that thero would be no such chitugo in tlie-ex- isting status of his holdings of various securities as would al all disturb other interests. (If greatest importance, of course, is the stock of the Haltinioro and Ohio, of which he was not only the largest individual shareholder, but even a holder to a greater extent than the city cd lialtimoie or the Johns Hopkins estate. Tho "(Iarrett inter est" iu fact amounts, it is staled, to very nearly two-sevenllts of the entire capital of the company. The aggre gate capital stock is .l l,71ii,ilib, or H7,'J"-',),(ih siinres, ot uie par value oi 4100. His estimated that the (iarrett interest amounts to about 4,UHU shares. The market quotation of tho stock is 17. or 7." per cent, abovo par. Ustimates of the wealth of Mr. (iar rett, made by persons who have had close business relations witli him, vary greatly, and range all tho wnv from o,00()",U0l) to i?:ii,tio0,(. Besides the common stock of the lSaltimore and Ohio Railroad company, ho owned, it is said, considerable amounts of tho preferred stocks and bonds of tho railroad, and had invested largely in tho securities of the branch and con necting in the system. Among theso have been most prominently mention, ed the Pittsburgh and (,'onnellsvillo, tho Cincinnati, Washington ami Bal timore, tlio Central Ohio, and tho Washington branch. He is si, id to havo been a holder, too, of Mocks or bonds in various eastern, western, and southern railroads, of government ponds, of Maryland and Virginia stato securities, oi lialtimore city stock. and of stock in a number of the banks and other liuancial and commercial corporations in tho city. The banking house of Robert (iarrett & Son lias a largo and very valuable business, and Mr. (iarrett was also a special part ner in the lirm of Pope & Cole, exten sive copper and genoi'ul metal dealors. His investments in real estate were very largo and widely distributed, lio sides his residence he owned other properly on Mount Vernon place. "Montebello," his country place, is splendidly improved, embracing over one thousand acres of line land, and is stocked almndanlly with the best and most valuable cattle, sheep, and swino. In his farming and stock rais lng operations Mr. (iarrett took great personal interest, and also In Ins gar dens, hot-houses, and conservatories. His horses wero not tho fastest, but they were all of lino stock, and from his pairs driven to u broad, strong, but rather light double buggy, ho got very good speed always. Besides "Moutebollo" he owned several other lino places in Baltimore county. In tho city his real cstato embraced fac tories, warehouses, ollieo buildings, and dwellings houses.

Why She Wasn't Buried. Old Uncle Ben, tho veteran stage driver, was an invetcrato jokor, and was fond of practicing his art upon the passengers who sharod thodrivor's box with him. Ono day his horses wore toiling over a lonoly country road and Just at night they passed a solitary farm-house, a mile distant from any other and bearing the ap poarance of a lnck of thrift. "Thero," said Uncle Ben, pointing with his whip, "there's a woman been lying In that houso for moro'n a fort night, and she isn't buried yet." "Drcdful," said passenger. "Tho authorities ought to attend to it. Hasn't she any friends, and why don't they bury her?" "Gtt friends enough, but she ain't dead. She'i at lively at cricket, 'V.

Dust from tho public highway with woods dirt may bo profitably stored now for winter ttso in tho pig pen, privy and chicken house. President Wilder estimates tho value nf our fruit crop annually, nt $140,000, i'O0. One million bushels of small fruits wore received at Chicago in 183. A gardener recommends sowing onion seeds in tho fall. Ovci tho beds plaeo some mulch for protection. Karly onions may bo thus secured. Keep the horses in tho stables at night, ihe season is too far advanced lor night pasturing. A cold storm might do exposed horses much harm. From March 1 to September 13 Clii ago packors slaughtered l,4.rl,00 ;ogs, being ono thousand less than fur lie corresponding period a year ago. Tho great problem in modern dairy ing scents to bo now to mako tho live uw oompcto with tho dead hog. So ar, tho hog is about two lengths ihoad, Cider apples aro not injured by light frosts. Placed iu heaps, tho fruit loses water and tho juieo becomes richer. Cool weathor is best for cider making. The barren nature of soil containing i iuch tannin is duo to the fact that it irecipitates in an insolublo form tho constituents which aro most necessary f ir plant lifo. Tho farm Jourwd puts it in this vay: "If tho fair is a fair, nttend and help build it up. If it is a gambling onccrn in any lorm, stay away ami iclp break it down." Tho Mississippi Valley produces 185,- J00 tons of cotton seed, one-fourth of which is marketed in Memphis, much if it being shipped in a crude stato From that point to Italy.

The best potato as to real valno, is tho ono containing the largest per centage of solid nutriment, that is, starch and albuuien. Ids tho starch that makes the potato cook dry and mealy. A California bco-keepcr takes tho position that no plant makes a better pasture for bees than alfalfa clover. The honey made from it, ho says, is almost cipial to that from white clover. Kec-keepers of other sections are of Ihe same way of thinking. Many sheep will go into winter very thin. Now is the tinio to feed wolf, and be prepared for a cold winter or a bleak March. Slick to tho good sheep and tako care of them, and let tho poor ones go to tlie butcher for mutton. Tho agent for tho Agricultural Do partment in Washington says that tho ICuropcan wheal crop, though abovo an averngo in product, will bo less than the aggregate of and that Kuropo will need to bo supplied with lH0,0i.il),OO0 bushels of wheat.

Advice to Swearers. Nobody cam for the swearing of an hibitual swearer. His volleys 0, pro fanity havo no torror in them. Tbey mean nothing. It is the man who never swears who scares you out of your boots if once in a lifetime ho docs swear. So far as wo can learn, Wash ington only swore once during all the eight years of tho revolutionary war. But that one time counted. It turned back the tide of retreat, changed a route into a victory, and made things hum. Hut the fellow who swears on all occasions, and swears hot and cold with the same mouth, tho intellectual pauper who ekes out his barron sup ply of ideas with an abundant crop of profanity, whose conversation is a long chain of mill privileges, and who talks as a beaver works, his Bwearing is weak, tiresome, disgusting. So, if you want to swear with nny effect, my boy, bo very seldom about it. Be ex clusive in your profanity. Jf vou can t get along without it, bring it out oc casionally, iiko rare out uiamonus. Don't keep it running six or eight hours a uny, like tlio kitchen liydiaut. And vou won't be offended, my son- hut if you will observe closely you will perceive that young men, boys, fledg lings of a bout your ago, swear moro than men moro frequently, more awkwardly, with less point and dire tion A man becomes ashamed of it. It belongs to tlio cigarette and matinee period of lifo, my boy. It is a habit that flourishes iu tlie bread-and-butter days, along somewhere between the high school and the college, and whilo tho hluo ribbon on tho diploma is bright. It belongs to what Puck so aptly calls tho "unsaltcd generation" tlio fresh young num. So put it away and put on manly things. I know sotuo gooil men, some of tho best in the world, who will confound it, and in New Kngland even a deacon has been known, under a terrible strain, to "condemn." But as a rule, my son, don't do it. Don't swear. It isn't an cviden.'o of smartness or worldly wisdom. Any fool can swear. And a good many fools do it. I, my son? Ah, i( you could only gather tip all the useless, uncalled for, incll'cot ive swears 1 havo dropped along the pathway of my life, I know 1 would remove stumbling blocks from many inexperienced feet, and in heart would lie lighter by a ton than it is to day. But if you are going to bo a fool just because other men havo been, oh, my son, what a hopeless fool you will bo. IMcrt J. lliirMk. Tukc Cure of the Fowls. Among the most id people the Idea prevails that at this season of the year tho fowls need no cure or atten tion, from tlio fact they aro not lay ing much, and can be left to run aud look out for themselves. It is an en tirely mistaken idea, as it is ono of the most important parts of tlio year for tho poultry slock. Upon a suc cessful passage through it depends much of their future usefulno-s, it being tho season in which they shed their olddicss of feathers ami lake on a new one. Tho feathering up of a fowl is a heavy strain upon the vital forces, whether young or old, and for that reason they should be well fed and cared for, "that they may come through strong and vigorous, and not with a broken down oiistilution, as is often tlio case. There is no reason why a hen should not lay as many eggs tlio second yiar as the lirst, or very nearly so: and yet it is conio to be regarded as a foregone conclusion that they are not nearly so fruitful; ami 1 mil inclined lo think that much depends upon their strength being sustained during the moulting poriml. Tho strain upon the vital forces of fowls may bo easily discovered in their manner and habits during that time. They arc depressed in their movemonls; they mopo about and keep secluded as much ns possible, and even tho cocks are seldom heard to crow, and, if so, not in Ihe clear, strong tones of (heir healthy, vigorous stages. Tho females, if possible, should ho separated from the males, and given a period id rest. Tbey should be fed liberally on nourishing food, and occasionally a little tonic, such as tincture of iron, in their drink ing water, and when the season comes around for tliein to begin their duties in tho way of giving us eggs, all such care and attention will bo well repaid. icxasi-arm una nanrii Storm Signals. As tho coming of a great storm Is heralded by the display of cautionary signals, so Is the approach of that dread and fatal diseaso, Consumption of the Lungs, usually announced in advance by pimples, blotches, erup tions, ulcers, glandular swellings, and kindred outward manifestations of the internal blood poison, which, If not promptly expelled from tho system, attacks tint dolicato tissues of the lungs, causing them to ulceratn and break down. Dr. Pierce's "Golden Medical Discover)'" is tho great reme dy for this, as for all diseases having their origin in bad blood. It improves tho appetite and digestion, increases nutrition and builds up tho wasted sys tem. English Railroads. During tlie year lHSD, British rail roads carried 863,718,137 passengers. Out of that number thcro wero but cloven killed by accidents which they could not avoid. Ten wero killed on Scotch and one on Irish roads, and not ono within tho boundaries of England, wncrc, or course, tno travel was the heaviest. Theso facts show a decided differ ence between American nnd English roads. In England everything is dono to ensure the safety of tho pass engers, in America everything looks to I ho pecuniary prolits of tlie road. In England, roadbeds aro solid and without a flaw. Tho material is tho best and tho attendance is superior to that of our roads. Foot travelers aro not allowed to cross tho track on its grade, but must go tinder or over it. No ono can get on or oil' a train except nt a spccilicd placo and tinio. Every possible nccidrnt is provided for. If after all provisions, life is lost, somebody is held responsible. Tlio verdict so popular in America of no ono to blame, is nearly unknown on tho English road. The guilty aro pun ished and I lio public is protected. oaii t ranctsco Daily Jlcport.

"I say, young man," said a physi cian, stopping him on tho street, "you're not well. Your face is flushed, and you arc in a high fever. Lot me feel your pulse." "1 I'm all right," protested tho youth. "No, you'ro not." said the physician positively. "You're pulso is over a hundred, and iu less than two minutes you will be in a cold sweat. You take my advice and go home." "I I can't go home. "I am re solved to ask old Jones for his daugh ter's hand to-night or perish miserably in the attempt."
