A Nat oral Ist Says It la Well no Big Wild He oat Has One Like It “It is a fortunate thing for man j anil the rest of the animal kingdom.” | said th6 naturalist to the Now York j Sun reporter, “that no large wild animal has a mouth constructed with the devouring apparatus built on the plan of the insignificant-looking snail’s mouth, for that unimal could out-devour anything that lives. The snail itself is such an entirely un pleasant, not to suy loathsome, crea ture to handle, that few amateur naturalists care to bother with it, but by neglecting the snail they miss studying one of the most interesting objects that come under their obser vation. “Anyone who has noticed a snail feeding on a loaf must wonder how bitch a soft, flabby, slimy animal can make such a sharp and clean-cut in cision in the leaf, leaving an edge as smooth and struight as if it had been cut with a knife. That is due to the peculiar and formidable mouth lip lias, 'jTio snail eats with his tongue and the roof of his mouth. The tongue is a ribbon which the snail keeps in a roll in hfts mouth The tongue Is in reality a band saw. with the teeth on the'surface instead of on the edge. The teeth are so small that us tnan7 as .*30,000 of them have been found on one snail’s tonguo. They are exceedingly sharp, and only a few of thorn are used at a time. Not exactly only a few of them, but a few of them com paratively, for the snail will probably have -1,000 or 5,0J0 of thorn in use at once. Ho doos this by meads of his coiled tongue He can uncoil as much of this As he chooses, and the uncoiled part ho brings into service. Tho roof of his mouth Is as hard as a bone. He grusps the leaf botweon his tongue and that hard substance • nnd, rasping away with his tonguo, saws through tho toughest leaf with case, always leaving tho edge smooth nnd straight. “By uso tho teeth wear off or be come dulled. When the snail finds that this tool is becoming blunted ho uncoils another section and works that out until ho comos to the end of tho coil. Then ho coils lhe tonguo up again and is ready to start in new, for while lie has been using tho latter portions of tho ribbon the teeth have grown in again in tho idle portions— tho saw has been filed and reset, so to speak—and while ho is using them tho teeth in the back part of tho coil are renewed. So I think I am rfght in saying that if any large beast of prey was fitted up with such a do voring apparatus as the Bnail it would go hard with tho rest of the animul’ kingdom.” ONLY ONE BRAVE MAN. The Stnge Coaolt Waa Killed But He Got the Plunder Hack. “One day in October, 1877, I was staging it in Northern California,” said Thomas M. Spencer. “There were six of us in the coach. We were talking about stage robbers. Suddenly there was a halt, and one of the party said: ‘Speak of tho devil and he will appear.’ Well, wo all got out and stood in a line and povo up our pursos and watches. The driver had thrown off the mail bag and the Wells-Fargo &afe. There wore two robbers, neither of ‘ them masked. They wore not polite like the knights of the road of romance, but swore continuously. Tho job was done in about five minutes, and tho robbers told the driver to go uhead. Wedidsofora half-mile or so, when one of the passengers, a silent man whom I had taken for a commercial man, said to the driver: •Go slowly and wait for me at the ford.’ He then produced a Win chester from tho bottom of tho coaoh and started back over the road alone. “ ‘Who is heP’ we asked of the driver. •••Wells-Fargo man. I guess; never saw him before, but I guess he knows his business. If he comes back he will have got them; if he don’t they’ll have got him.’ “Twenty minutes later we heard some rapid firing. We stopped at tho ford. Nearly an hour passed and then the man who hod gone back ap peard on the trail. He walked slowly, as if in pain, and a bloody handkerchief was tied about his head. 'Drive back and get tho box,* ho said to the driver. ‘Did you get ’em?’ asked the driver. ‘Both of ’em,’ he replied. “Wo drove back. In tho middle of the road whoro we had been held up, both men lay dead. The Wells- Fargo detective, calculating that they would stop to rifle the mail bag and the strong box, divide the plun der, and then seperate, had quietly walked back. One of them he drop ped with his Winchester beforo ho was suspectod; the other got in ono shot before ho fell, and that had 3truck the bravo man a glancing blow on tho head. Our property was all restored to us. We helped bury tho lead robbers by the roadside. The brave officer refused to accept tho purse we hastily raised for Him.” A Hint to Inventors. Professor Bell thinks the time oc cupied by inventors in working out the problem of aerial navigation by tho usual inflated gas bags and meth ods of steering them is wasted. Ho thinks a feasible means of propelling arul directing an airship would be by a kind of trolley system where the rod would hang down from the car to tho stretched wire instead of extend ing upward. He recommends the idea to inventors. Hill’s Picnic. ••What’s Bill Jones takin’so much time thumpin’ that one trunk around for?” asked one railroad employ© of un other. ••S-S-Sh! Don’t bother him. He’s enjoyin’ himself.

THE AGRICULTURAL WORLD BOMB POINTERS ON AGRICULTURE WORTH READING. loMClhlsc About Npet-lalty nnd Gen eral Fnrnaln*—Lice and Tick* on Sheep—The Necessary Milo—Stack ing Grain—Pointer*. For years past there has been a great deal said nnd written about specialty and general farming, and more espe cially during the lust few years of dis content among the farmers, says a writ er in the Ohio Farmer. The difference between specialty und general firming is not great if the advocates of both systems will put the same construction on the word specialty. Whatever the word may mean, I do not think Its ad vocates use it to convey the idea that a limn, to bo n specialist, must confine his efforts to only one crop or only one par ticular branch of agriculture, and yet the advocates of geuernl farming seem determined that a specialist must con fine himself. If to be u specialty farmer means that tt limn must confine ull his efforts to one branch of agriculture* such as rais ing nothing but Wheat, corn, oats, pota toes, hogs, horses, sheep, cattle or uny other particular thing, then the less specialty farming we have the better. Our brethem In the South .tried special ty farming, the specialty being cotton, and it proved a curse to them, not only as individual farmers, but ns a people. But special farming don’t mean any thing of the kind; If it dot's, I have never seen a modern specialty farmer, nor have I ever read a line advocating such methods from the most enthusias tic specialist. I believe I voice the sen timents of all specialists when I con strue it to mean a system, a special system, or in other words a speclul ro tation or combination. Thus a man nmy have one or more crops. All his efforts and energies are centered on that crop; it is the primary object. This crop may bo potatoes. He may and does raise clover, wheat and corn, yet he raises them only that they may he the means of holding or increasing the fertility in his soil and stimulating It to its best efforts o produce potatoes. While he may raise other crops, they are only the means through which he expects to gain certain ends in view. Our specialty is butter, yet we raise wheat because it Is the best way to get our ground back to clover, for liny, and to increase the fertility in our land. We raise corn because it is the founda tion of dairy feed. We raise potatoes because they bring the money which to buy bran and linseed meal. Wo keep a few hogs and a good umr.y chickens, to eat our skim-milk; yet all our efforts are to make all the butter we can. Ev erything grown by this system or rota tion, excepting hogs and chickens, goes Into the mouths of our cows. They are D’-r machines for converting our farm products into cash. Butter is our money crop and our specialty. So a man might, and I think every farmer should, make some braueli of agriculture a specialty. I believe the ruun that will take up some special sys tem of farming or stock raising and study his business, and follow It intelli gently, Is the man who will succeed. It is an admitted fact that there is no money in general farming to-dny, yet we see men, and rend statements daily jf men, who are making money by spe cialty farming, not by growing one thing, but by some special system. The NeiC*»»«ry Silo. Practical dairymen are coming more uid more to the conclusion that tne silo Is a necessary adjunct of the dairy. There have been strong objections arged against it, partly through preju dice, partly because the best methods >f caring for fodder in this way were not thoroughly understood. One hears tnd reads a good deal less in opposi tion to the silo now than two or three, >r even one year ago. It has been liscovered that a silo need not be a costly affair, and the proper mode of dlling it is much better understood than formerly, so that tho ensilage is )f very much better quality. One of the most careful dairymen In New England is reported to have said recently that a milk producer with all tils capital and labor dependent upon a large flow of milk could not afford to be subject to the whims of the sea »n, and lose a large proportion of his income because the usual quantity of rain happened to be withheld. He add ed that he must liave a supply of en tilage the year round as an insurance against drouth and flood. This is the case in a nutshell. It is i question of dollars and cents. When the pastures dry up in August, as now adays they are almost sure to do, the rows begin to shrink in milk, and, at the same time, up goes the price of but ter, but the dairyman who depends >n pasture feeding is powerless to take Advantage of the rise. It is then that the silo comes into play, and the dairy man who has one smiles to think he s not dependent upon burnt-up pastures and a shrinking milk supply. Lice and Tick* on Sheep. An expensive experiment was made by Prof. C. F. Gillette, of the Color' Ado experiment station, on tho preven tion of lice and ticks in sheep, which we give as follows: After shearing the sheep an emulsion consisting of 8 per cent kerosene is mode. Perhaps this may be slightly weakened. During tho treatment a man should stand in the vat and give each sheep a thorough drenching. The emulsion should bo kept well stirred At. all times. The cost of materials for dipping fifty-eight sheep waa sl.ll. The scab parasite, ticks, lice and mag gots all succumb to the destroying pow ?r of the kerosene. Tho dip does not remain permanently in the wool after drenching It; It should be renewed after ?ach annual shearing. Too much kero §ene is likely to take off the wool, hence It must bo thoroughly emulsified. An emulsion rnado at the rate of two gal lons of kerosene, half a pound of soap And one gallou of water churned togeth er, nnd added to thirty or forty gallons Df water after churning, will be strong enough to accomplish all that is de sired. The Original Home* of Sheep. A British agricultural exchange, dis cussing the origin nnd distribution of sheep, believing thnt British domestic sheep were principally derived from the high grounds of Persia, Afghanistan and India, nnd Ibat they could not ex ist far inland owiug to too dry a cli mate and the scarcity of salt, says: “Our mountain sheep are prlncipaly de rived from A sain wild ancestors there Is every reason to believe, but that sheep can do well when attended to ! away from the seaboard we have am | pic proof In Australia. There are even i nt this day many species of wild sheep | inhabiting the mountain ranges in the I center of Asia, far removed from the sea. Others are aa firmly convinced that the wild ancestors of long wool sheep lived in a cold climate, and in low, heavily grassed lands. Among the fossil remains of the sheep found in Europe, palaeontologists describe two distinct species, one of which is named the ‘Marsh’ sheep. Even at the present day the numerous breeds of mountain sheep, after so many centuries of do* inesticatlou, are entirely different in disposition and habit of the loug woolled or low-land sheep. Indeed, the two breeds cannot attain their full development on the same pasture. j _ Ntsi’kisi Gratn< ! A correspondent writes Orange Judd Farmer: If I have a log or iarge pole I start my stack or rick by laying the first bundles with the beads upon it. This will keep the grain off the ground. If I have no log I start as if putting up a shock and continue until the bottom is the proper size. Lay a double rdw of bundles on the outside remaining on the ground to keep the butts even. When this is done get on the stack nnd with a short-handled, short-tlned fork begin laying the second or “bind ing” row of bundles. Turn the heads of these toward the outside and plnce them so the heads will just about reach to the bands of tho tirst row. Continue this until the middle of the stack is . reached, laying the bends toward the outside nil the while. Then begin ngnin on the outside, laying this row without i getting on it at all. Bind it as before,; 1 stepping on the heads of tho second , row. Keep the middle high and solid. • Grain stacked thus will not slip or take water. I have used this method for many years with good results. j Drimlng Water. The cheapest nnd easiest metnod of j drawing water from a well 100 feet deep is by a force pump and a wind mill. To convey the water to a house on an elevation, a pipe may be attached to the pump, and to keep up a constant supply there should be a cistern near the house which should hold a stock for use in case of failure of the wind at any time. Where the cold Is Intense in the winter the pump may be placed in a cellar well protested by a bank over It and a double door, and tho discharge pipe should he laid iu the ground be low the reach of frost. It will be a help to fill the ditch in which the pipe is laid wit sawdust or chaff, and to lay the pipe in a wooden box, so os to have air around it. Agricultural Pointer*. Do not tolerate dirty milking. Put extracted honey in attractive packages, neatly labeled. Locate the bees near the house where they can be heard when they swarm. If the bee keeper's supply of Honey is small, he will do better to sell near home. Don’t forget the salt box. Keep a constant supply where the cows can lick when they like. Avoid having butter warm enough to liecome soft when it Is being handled or the grain will be spoiled. The price paid for “canners” Is low, but it is more than a poor cow is worth on the farm if kept for her milk. Honey can be extracted, if the work Is carefully doue. without the least in jury to the comb, which may be re placed In the hive, to be refilled. Use sawdust under and around the hives to prevent grass nnd weeds springing up to annoy the bees. Some use sand or gravel for this purpose. The Italian is the most prolific and best all-around bee. With its long totgue it is able to go right to the bottom of the flowers, as the black bee cannot. Do not neglect to weed turnips. If they have been planted In drill rows the weeding can be accomplished with a cultivator. Do not risk having grain stand in tho shock too long. There are a number of small wastes which constantly go on nnd which will, in a shurt time, aggre gate more than the cost of stacking. Ventilate the vegetable cellar nt night so it will be cooled by the night air and keep it closed during the day. Cel lars need ventilation and should be kept cool as possible. Dig potatoes as soon as tho vines have died and Btore thenxln a cool cel lar or elsewhere until me air grows cooler outsido this autumn, when they are best taken out and burled. Do not allow weeds to grow up and seed among the potatoes after they are ripe. A few weeds often produce many hundred seeds which It will require ex tra work later to destroy. The Festive Firecracker. Stop! hr re are firecrackers! How that pungent odor annihilates time. One really has a strong desire to take a pack, squat down somewhere and “fire it off.” It is strange that no one can make firecrackers like the Chi nese; they seem to possess some exclus ive knowledge or secret Yet how sim ple they are. A strip of thick coarse paper is cut six inches long and an inch and a half wide. Across the middle of it the match paper, or stem, is laid, protuding a quarter of an inch from the bottom. A pinch of fine powder is laid upon It and the paper folded and pastr ed. This is deftly rolled into a hard cylinder. The bottom is plugged with a particle of soft red clay, and the cracker is then laid in a mold and pressed until dry, the clay meantime being rammed In still more firmly. Fi nally a slip of thin red paper is pasted for the envelope. This Is one description of the manufacture. CoL Field speaks of another method where by the paper was rolled and pressed around a form, and when dry the fuse was entered, the bottom plugged with clay, the powder put in nnd the paper at the upper end punched down around the fuse, after which the red envelope was put on.—Demorest’s Magazine. How Americana Cheer. The arrival of the president and his party called forth what to my British ears was a most unexpected vocal dem onstration, says the Review of Reviews. The people not only cheered os British crowds are wont to cheer. They in dulged in sounds which are to us ex pressive of strong derision. They liter ally caterwauled. I was almost as sur prised as Milton makes out of his fallen hero to be when, instead of the ap plause he anticipated, he was greeted with one vast *•. I suppose every nation develops ns own style of plaudit. The Germans have their short stac cato “hoch,” the British their sonorous "hurrah," while the Americans have selected the shrill feline yell. Asking a fair Chicagoan the reason of this strange preference, I got for answer, "I guess they want to make ns much noise as they can; and they find they make most noise that way.” IN FOREIGN LANDS. Tradition’s Pow.r Visible la All Grade# of Old* World Social Lift. In addressing his faithful Branden burgers on the occasion of the open ing of their provincial diet recently. Emperor William laid stress on the important part which tradition plays in monarchical states, and the New York Tribune thinks that, although he dwelt more enpeoially on the in fluence which it exercises on the re | lations of a nation toward the dy ; nasty that has ruled over it for many centuries, yet it cannot be denied that it pervades the entire social life tjf the old world. Nor is its influence confined, as might be supposed, to the classes. Indeed, it is just as potent with the masses, a fact read ily comprehensive when it is borne in mind that people on the other side of the Atlantic are, as a rule, con tent with their social status. The yeoman farmer takes pride in the fact that his ancestors tor hundreds of years have been yeoman formers like himself, and educstes his chil dren to live up to the traditions of their forefathers. There are peas ants in England, Germany and in Brittany who can trace their descent back to the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, and who have sufficient sense of dignity to prefer to be at the head of the yeoman rather than at tail end of the aristocracy. In the same way the retail and whole sale traders in Europe, even in such republican countries as Switzerland and France, take an honest pride in the fact that their forefathers wero traders like themselves, and it is the traditions of their ancestors which constitute the principal incentive for preserving untarnished by any failure or commercial dishonor the good name which they have inherited. In France tne lawyers in particular are fond of pointing out how their fathers and fathers' fathers had been honored members of the magistracy and of the bar, and they, too, strive to live up to the traditions of what Is known in the Gallic tongue as the noblesse de robe. Considered the Point. In Illinois there is an old law on the statute-books to the effect that in criminal cases the jury is “judge of the law as well as the facts.” Though not often quoted, once in a while a lawyer with a desperate case makes use of it. In one case the judge in structed the jury that it was to judge of the law as well as the facts, but added that it was not to judge of the law unless it was fully satisfied that it knew more law than the judge. An outrageous verdict was brought in, contrary to all instructions of the court, who felt called upon to rebuke the jury. At last one old farmer arose. “Jedge,” said he, “weren’t we to jedge the law as well as the facts P” “Certainly,” was the re sponse; “but I told you not to judge the law unless you were clearly lattsfled that you knew the law bet ter than I did.” “Well, jedge,” an swered the farmer, as he shifted his juid, “we considered that p’int.”— Argonaut BITS OF FUN.

The World's Wheat Supply. There seems to be a considerable shortage in the world’s wheat supply this fall, and the United States will be called upon to meet the deficit. The statements of the harvests of the world, which are prepared annually by government officials at Vienna, were sent out this week. The grain and seed market estimates will show Aus tralia’s yield of wheat to be 14,000,- 000 metercentner, or 88.8 per cent.; rye, 24,500,000 metercentner, or 89 per cent.; barley, 145,000 metercent ner, or 93.5 per cent; oats, 1,500,000 metercentner, or 82.6 per cent. The Hungarian minister of Agriculture gives the following figures. The defi cits to be filled by the importing countries will require 379,000,000 bushels, and the surplus available in exporting countries to satisfy their demand is 379,666,000. The world’s groduct of rye is given as 485,000,000 eetolitres. Why i* It eaay to break into an old man’s house? Because bis locks are few and his gait is broken.
