Tha Rising of Sap ia Trees.
NW York Times. It ii a subject of interest to maple sa gr makers where the sap in the trees comes from, and there is much difference in opinion about it. The sap does not come from the ground by the roots, but is in the tree, and has been all the winter, but in the form of starch deposited in the cells of the toft wood under the bark. When the weather becomes warm enough in the spring to eet the vital processes in the tree to action, this stareh is changed into sugar, and the cells are filled so full of the sweet sap as to exert a great pres sure on tbem. When the spring begins, the warmth of the sun starts this vital action, and the sap circulates through the cells on the way to the buds, which will swell and soon burst into leaf. When the eugar maker taps his trees, the pressure of the sap on the cells forces it to exude and flow from the opening made in the sap wood. -There is no spe- Ciai current up irum mo 10 them; the tree is simply filled with sap all through the eapwood, and mostly at that part of it which lies immediately under the bark, and where the nw wood will soon be formed of the matter held W. .ftlntinn in thfl fi&r. The 8D Will flow while the ground is frozen, for it is the warmth in the air that causes the flow, and not the action of the roots in the nil" Thus it is auite useless to spread any litter or other non-conductive mat ter under the tree in the expectation that il the ground is kept frozen the budding will ue uemyeu. xi ium cuv uvd.. tbe whole tree must be covered in and Irprkt in s. linrm&nt condition bv a low temperature all over. Thus young trees may be kept in cold utorage for months, and are bo kept for shipment to Australia, where the (seasons are extremely tbe op posite to ours. Religious Prosperity in This Country. N. Y. Sun. A large quarto volume, containing the statistics of churches in the united States, has just been added to the publish ed reports of the census of 1890. It gives the returns of 143 distinct denomi inations and 156 independent organiza tions, with a total of 20.612,806 com municants or membors. Only one relig ious body is omitted in tbe enumeration. No list of the number of worshipers at the Chinese temples was obtainable, for none is kept, the assumption being that every Chinaman who has not actually departed from his ancestral religion is included among them. Great as are tbe number and variety of denominations, all except about eight per cent of the total of members belong ed in 1890 to twenty-fcix denominations only. In five of the denominational fam ilies alone were over 17,000,000 com municants out ot the whole number o 20,000,000 and over. They are thus enumerated: Catholic - - - - 6,257,871 Methodist - - - 4,589,284 BaDtiat - - 3.712.468 Presbyterian 1,278,332 Lutheran - - 1,231,072 It appears, therefore, that of the tota church membership, about seven-tenths were Catholics, Methodists, and Baptists combined, and about three tenths Cath olics alone. About four-sevenths of the Protestant membership were Methodists and Baptists alone; or in round figures 8,000,000 out of 14,000,000. In the num ber of their organizations, or churches and congregations, both the Methodists and Baptists far exceeded tbe Koman Catholics, the explanation being that the Catbolio parishes are much greater on the average, some of them containing as many as 14,000 communicants. About onehaIf of the Roman Catholics were in the 124 cities of a population ot 25,000 and upward, whore tbe proportionate representation of the two others is com paratively small. Even the Episcopal- . t I X 1 1 W A l f it ians, oi wnom mere were oniy 04U,ouv in the whole Union, exceeded the BaptistB in their urban membership, and came not far short of the Methodists, nearly one-half of their communicants also bet ing in the cities. More than three-quar ters of the Jews and of the German Evangelical Protestants were in tbe cities, and nearly onehalf of the Unita rians. Proportionately to the population the number ot religious communicants was greater in the cities than in the country, In the 124 cities containing an aggregate population of 13,989,568 there were 5,i 6VZ,via communicants, or one in every 2.64 inhabitants; in the oountry there was only one to d.o. The greatest num ber was in New York, 556,954. This oity takes tbe lead also in the value o its churoh property, nearly 155 000 oon but Philadelphia has the first place in the number of its church' edifices, 664 or 130 more than New York. Philadelphia, therefore, rather than Brooklyn, is enti tled to be called tbe Uity ot Churches. It bas one church edihee to every 1.577 o population, to -Brooklyn's one to 2 in Chicago comes third, one to 2.200. and New York fourth, one to 2,838. Pro portionately to tbe population the num ber of oommumcants was somewhat more in the smaller cities than the greater New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and T) 1.1 I i . . . . uruuftivu uave ucariy one-inird Of the population of the 124 cities, but con siderably less than a third of the commu nicants.

In Chicago, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn that cuurcn naa respectively nearly two thirds neany one-nan, and nearly two-thirds. In the Union, New Mexico, which is strongly Roman Catholic, had the great uuuiuor ui communicants proportion ately to the population, or 8.85 nitr oAnt Next came Utah, the seat ofmormonism, with 61.62 per cent; then Arazona, large ly iainoiic, with 45.24 per cent.

Rhode Island came next with 42.84, and then louoweasortb Carolina, another Bap tist stronghold, 42.35; Massachusetts, 42.11; and Connecticut, 41.25. The per centage of the other States and Territo ries ranged from 32.84 for Pennsylvania down to 7.93 for Oklahoma. In New York It was 36.21. The returns of the Protestant denomi nations show the very remarkable in crease since 1880 of 3,895,128, or 42.05 per cent, though meantime the increase in population was only 24 86 per cent Comparative statistics aato the Roman Catholics were not obtainable, but pre- What is Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants and Children.

Osgood, Lowell, Mass. " The use of Castoria is so universal and its merits so well known that it seems a work of supererogation to endorse it. Few are the intelligent families who do not keep Castoria within easy reach." Carlos Martto, D.D., New York City. ' I prescribe Castoria every day for children who are suffering from constipation, with better effect than I receive from any other combination of drugs." Dr. L. O. Morgan, South Amboy, N. J.

I tried every known remedy, consulted the best physi cians, visited Hot Springs, Ark., three times, spending $1000 there, besides doctors' bills ; but could obtain only temporary relief. My flesh was wasted away so that I weighed only ninety-three pounds ; my left arm and leg were drawn out of shape, the muscles being twisted up In knots. I was unable to dress myself, except with assistance, and could only hobble about by using a cane. I had no appetite, and was assured, by the doctors, that I could not live. The pains, at times, were so awful, that I could procure relief only by means of hypodermic Injec tions of morphine. I had my limbs bandaged in clay, in sulphur, in poultices; but these gave only temporary relief. After trying everything, and suffering the most awful tortures, I began to take Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Inside of two months, I was able to walk without a cane. In three months, my limbs began to strengthen, and in the course of a year, I was cured. My weight bas increased to 165 pounds, and I am now able to do my full day's work as a railroad blacksmith." The Only World' Fair Sarsaparilla. A.XER'8 FILLS cure Headache. Goose Grease.
