It is not generally known, but the Utah Qngar Company has begun a novel use for the waste product from the works at Lehl, known as by product or molasses. Roads are actually being constructed with the syrnps which are valueless as sugar producers, the life having been ex tracted. Tho molasses is usod as a cement, the body of, the road be.ng made up of fine gravel. This new method was first used on the road leading from the country road on the sugar factory, and tho trael over this thorough are since the open ng of the sugar soason has demonstrated the vatue of the syrups and gravel as materials for the improving of roads. The piece ot road that has been so Improved is as hard as the best of macadam, and even the heaviest loaded wagons do not cut It no. The svrncs are first poured over 'Ihe .roisdWay I'toift' Improved, and then a layer of grayed la sprinkled on. More syrnps and gravel follow in their turns, until the road Is in perfect condition. There seems to be just sufficient potash salts in the molasses to give it the necessary cementing qualities. This making of roads and walks with refuse syrups from sugar fac tories has also been successfnlly tried in California. It la not at all unlikely that at the end of tha present season the company will, make more improvements on the, roads leading to the factory. At first the molasses showed a tendency to ooze up through the gravel, bpt the application of an extra coating of gravel remedied this, and made the road as smooth as a floor.

The fruit has the size and appearance of a Bmall cherry' a contains two seeds or beans. When these are ripe, they are gathered and bruised to separate the berries wh.ch are then washed and dried Some authorities claim that the berry contains from six to eight per. cent, ol cane sugar; but in tbe roasting process this becomes con vert e.d into cararrel. The most im portant principles are tbe caffelc acid (the tannin ot tea), the alkaloid caffeine and the fragrant olatlleoll called caffeone. This oil Is in mln ute drops in the cells or between the outer membrane and body of tbe seed, and may be taken up by dis tillation with water.

He was the only bidder and bought the property for $20,000. In his purchase Mr. Orebs represents the present holders of the bonds, amounting to i 103,000. The property probably cost '20 times the amount he bad paid for It. The sale of the properly and reorganiza tion will no doubt prove a benefit to the cltf and profitable to the new ownerf. Redfern, the well-known London tailor, is dead. Kedfern was an underling In a London dressmaking establishmeut, when he decided to open a shop of his own. He became famous for his tailor-made gowns.

Tbe report closes with a discussion of the question of the future of farms and farming in tho United States. Tho average valuo of farms by tho contui or 1830 was 12,000. The val ue of Imploments, domestic animals and sundries will maka a total farm plant of $4,00 .for afamlly avorag-. have families and forty million urban loiidents, besides supplying $500,000,000 worth of produce to foreign consumers. In the presence of these facts the sec retary askB: "Now can anyone daro to assert that farming is generally unrenutnerativo and unsath(a tory to those who intelligently follow It." Iho mortgage on farm values does not excoeJ 10 per cent. a loss in cumbrance on capital Invested than In any other line of industry. Ho foretells confldontly a steady increase in tho valuo of farm lands as the populat on of the country in croaBes. THE SWEr.T YOUNG SISTER. at,'"? Much space Is devoted to d'scuss lag the opportunities for American meat products ln forei .n maikets Of 311,0u0 tons of meat received at the London L'ential Market ln 1834, 71,000 tons were Aruoricin, while nearly 5J,000 tons cau:e from Aus tralia. The American proportion has not been maintained durlug 1835. In tbe Imports of live cattle to Great Britain the United States and Canada had a practical monopoly until the last two years. Since 1833 Argentla's shipments have greatly incc33edrCurlug"tlio llrst .eigi months ot the year, these shipments amonnted to over 25,003 bead Although the meat of he South American cattle is not as eatable as the American, the business is profit able and likely to ln reaso. Amerl can cattle sell, though slaughtered soon after landing, at prices equal to the average paid for British car casses. The export of American horBes to Great Uritain has increased steadily, having more than doubled smco 1833, amounting in the first eight months of 1895 to 22,755 head valuad at nearly $3,000,000. Anier lean geldidgs averaged this year in the English market $155. A rigid inspection of horses for export will be undertaken. Tha foreign trade in dairy products is carefully re viewed. In cheese the United States, while a large shipper to British markets holds the conspicuously unflatterjng place in tbe o.vtreme fear bb to quality and price, and is the only one of the compttttors for tbli trade whose business shows a ser.ous fa 1 Jng off. In butter tbe United States is out of the race, supplying less than 1 per cent, of the British demand for torelgn butters, notwithstanding the fact that Great liritlan Imported in eight months $46,000,000 worth of butter. Referring to our standing in the foreign dairy market, tbe secretary warns Bhlppers of the consequence o their methods, adding: 'Wo have a graphic illustration of tho disastrous effects in all trades of d aregnrdlng the tastes of consu i era and o. acqurng a bad reputation." The secretary says the crop-re porting work Is the substance ot constant criticism. As at present organized it can hardly fail to be otherwise, though more satisfactory at present than at any previous time The secretary thinks that tbe duty of ascertaining the acreage ot staple crops In each state on June 1 of each year, might be imposed upon the authorities of the agricultural colleges and stations In consideration of the annual appropriations they re'.elve from tbe National Treasury, Snch acreage being given and the character of the soil known, with tbe the climate conditions published dally by tbe Weather Bnreau, approxlma tlons as to tbe y.eld of each crop could probably be computed with more acenracy than under the pres ent method. Of the savings lu the department, he says the total amount remaining unexpended out of the appropria tions for the year 1893, 1894, 1895, aggregates $1,800,000 available for return into the treasury.

Tho King will be angry. He ,aaatvrleh that-my alctcr shocld suffer o and die and leave me alone. Have pity, great angel, and hear my prayer." Tho angel looked down on the lit tle suppliant with deep love and pity, and said: "Tho K ng has sent my brother, tho an;;ol of death, to bring your s ttcr to lliiiisilf. If i ou ore allowed to keep her, will you promise mo to see that the shall nev er ngain l.e toss n on a sick bod In pain?" "How can I?" said the wondering child. "Not even the wisest physicians can keep ua from sickness always." "Thon will you I remise me that she shall never be unhappy, nor be coM or hungry or tired, nor be spoken to or treated harbh'y?" caked tbe angel. "Not if I can holp it," answered the child bravely; "but perhaps even I could not always make hor happy." "Then," replied the angol tenderly "tho wcrld where you would keot her must be a sad placo. Now I wl 1 open tho gate just a little, and yo' may look Into the garden for a mo ment, and then, if you still wish it, I will myself ask tho King for a leaf from the troo of life to heal your slBter." And tho astonished child looked ln wliero grow the living tree, and where l'owed the crystal rivor, and where stood the bright mansions, and wbero walked and talked immor tal children under a light more beautiful than that of tbe sun and with friends more loving than those on earth, and where love and bless lng reigned forever. He looked until his eyes widened in surprise and glowed with oy, and, turning to the angel, ho said aoltly: "i will not ask for tbe leaf now. There is no place so beautiful as this; there Is no tr end bo kind as tho angel of death. I wish be would tako me too." So the child turned back under the stars that shono 1 ke colebtial eyoa upon him. And as he went a ray of holy 1 ght fell upon his path, and wonderful music, euch as. he never before beard, filled his ears, and ho knew that tbe golden gate had openeeTio leceive his sitter. And it was so that uhon ho taw her silent form upon her little Led at home he was comforted. 4 CATTT,H. t tf, BbtDPlnc and Export. In tbt'ClA .thV repreieotatlon Aid not Include .any, ohotcs grades.

"Not Infrequently," said a stroller, "you see j.eop e with tbelr arms full of bund es making hard work of opening an umbre la. There is a very simple and easy way of opening an umbrella with one band, known to many but perhaps not all. Yon grasp tbe little cylinder around the handle, to which the lower ends ot the ribs aro attached, plant the point of the umbrella against a lamp post, and push until the little cylin der catches on the nppor catch, and there yon are, without tho least trouble In the world." GEORGIA'S NAMELESS TOWN. From tbe Mucon Telegraph Mr. J. P.. Sbepard, a prominent citizen of Namelo-s, Lauiens county, Ga , was in tho city yesterday on bus neen, and while here told a re porter how his town got its queer name. "After the poitofflce authorities at Washington decided to give us a poetolllce," said Mr. Shepard, "the question of na-ning It arose. I had interested myself In getting the office, and therefore It was left by common consent to me to suggest a namo to the authorities. Accord ugly I sent on a name that I thought was a beauty, and while awaiting a reply I pictured how some day that same name would be known all over the country and that tho town would grow and blossom as tho rose, lor I believe that there is much in a name. Finally the answer came back that, while the namo I had suggested was a good one, it was too similar to an other poitofflco ln Georgia. Then I put my brain to work on another nme. l JUBt know that tney would accept It, but the same answer camo baik as before. Still nnot er and other names were sent, am each tlmo the authorities would write ba'k that theie was itl or another post office iu the s ato by that name, or that it was bo much like some other name that It it was adopted there would he confusion In the malls. "At last I sat down and wrote out a list of Bcveral hundred nameB and told them It they could not And one In the list to suit them the office would remain nameless, for I had suggested every name I had ever heard of. In duo time the answer camo back. 'Let it remain Name less,' and ever since then it has bad that name, which, while a little odd, Is not suob a bad name alter all." MISCONSTRUED.
