1886. ' ' 1 The Daily Abghjs. JOHN W POTTER. Monday. November 29. 1886. The unarchiits will nut be banged oa Deo. 3. .Justice Scott having granted writ of error, they will lave a lease of life until next spring at least. This re sult does not indicate that these red hand ed murdereri will finally escape the pen alty of their crime. The object is to allow the case to be reriewed by the full supreme court. This is usually done a a matter nf coursi where the question of life an.I death is concerned, and there is no particular reason why the custom should be departed from in this case The probabilities are that the sentence Will be upheld by the court and after the Sentence has been passed upon by this high and impartial tribunal, far distant from the influence of popular passion, the last pretense that the condemned men have not hud a fair trial will he removed If, on the other hand, errors are shown to .have been committed a new trial will be ordered, as il is proper ii should be. "S'aii tut law." was the favorite excla mation of those seven murderers, and it is a curious circumstance that they now owe their only chance of life to that very law which they desired to throttle.

Cotton-seed meal is hard to digest and oucht not to be iven to breeding cows or to young slock of any kind. Butter tainted before it goes to the churn, no possible after enre cm make iJiKid or keep it fit to eai until winter. The standard for a good cow is mid to be 60(1 gallans of milk a year, and ol this thete should be 10 per cent of cream It is best to cat up corn before the stalks become hard and dry. Fodder as well as hay may be injured by waiting until it is too ripe. For milch cows try a meal ground from corn and oats and mix with bran and you may find a better flow of milk than from any other. Warm and cold milk should not be mixed. The new railk should be rid of its animal beat before adding it to that of previous milking. Slight elevations are a afer place for the crape than bottom lauds. The early and the late frosts always seek low lands, but are not so apt to creep up on the mountain sides Do not disturb the bees after tney have been placed in tueir locations for the win ter. As they have methods of their own for reinitiating the heat of the hives they should e siuipiy sheltered, allowing all the lionet iu the lower tier of combs to be undisturbed.

Tue Kansas Farmer remarks. When youug pigs suddenly stop eating, become convulsed and squeak and drop dead, it is an indication that Ihey are over-fer! and are suffering from indigestion. There is no cure f... obvious reasons, but the trouble is easily prevented by Seed ing moderately. I'lgs should never be given all the fuod they will eat. but their rations should be measured out strictly. The raising of turnip and cabbage seed has proved very profitable, and added mateiially to the income of the farmers on the east end of Long Island. , One farmer near Maltituck h) said to have cleared $1,200 from baggage seed alone. Another made flUU from turnip seed raiseii on a small plot. The main crops iu that section is cauliflowers, cabbages and potatoes, and the raising of seed has heretofore been subsidiary to these crops, but it has proved so profitable that many farmers Lave gone into it largely. Ev.-ry man who really k.iows hcv thing really worth knowing is aw.rc ihat the plants of nature furnisb the bodies of all animals with as much salt as is good and neccessary for them, and thai salt fed to them in the pure and raw state only requires more iabor on the part-of the kidneys to throw it off and more water to be drunk to quench the burning and un natural ihirnt lh-1 all animals are atB ct ed with when indulging in eating raw salt. Let this old superstitoin pass out with the custom of killing hogs and plant ing com in the full of the moon, for both of them are away behind the other prac tices of the farm. Stou it. for there is no sense in it. Vmriiinin An Arizona dairyman has a siiiul. remedy for bloat caused hy alfalfa, ac cording to the PUmter aud SUtckman. Last year be suffered ereai loss of cows, as many as seven u.ilkers dying in one night. This year he struck upon a sim ple plan of constructing a trench iu the corral, with a bank thrown up on one side perhaps eighteen inches or two feel high. As soon as a cow is observed to be bloating and be keeps a constant watch upon theui while feeding she is driven into the corral and made to siand with her hind feet up on the bank. The result is mat the iras in the stomach of the cow immediately begins to belcjj off and the animal is Boon entirely relieved. Out of sixty bloats in one day his plan has proven effectual every time. When, however, a cow istoo far gone before ob served, which is when she begins to moan and grunt, sticking is icsorled to, hut this bag occurred in only six instances this season. So far he has not lost a single bead out of bis lame herd. The cattle are kept in the corral at night, however. y "Neither rhyme nor reason can express how much I value a cure I've found for my weak ankle," she said.

THE ART OF TEA TASTING. Method of an Kipert in the tfutdneta. Chat willi On mt the Cfaft. ,When tliecaigutb of teas arrive oa this side, million on millions of pound-, the tea testers", or tasters, work liegins. It is an art, and remarkable skill is attained by those who have toe natural facility for it. and have developed that facnlt j by long ex perience and careful training. There are so many elements or factors entering into the process and h! taping the conclusion of the tea taster that it is iniposhible to describe t Item, ami eihans the most proficient taster of teas could not enumerate them in fact, is not conscious of them. The expert in wool cannot explain how he distinguishes be tween two prudes of wool which toem ordi nal man are identical, but his touch to nueiTin and his judgment accurate, bo theo-u UisiiN- works often as much by intui tional by niL-. Ho h;u epiippeI hintself to operate in the realm of nice distinctions, ana he is perfi- tlv at home thenf He cannot be cheated. How do ten tasters go to workl A big nmiiil table of considerable solidity, which whirls easily on a pivoted center. Tempt inuly t alnmt tiie elge of this re volving ia!'lMne lserves an array of tea cups more or less n-sthetic in noM and adorn uieut, ne ,on ling to the '"style" of the establishment. inci-atly, however, these iinKn rnt tea sete are for srvj.-e not fr show. A gi'iierous teakettle is stuck $omet hei-e in a convenient corner, and itkcpsnpa pleasant purring over ihe patient gii- l. When the tea taster is iu full armor the cups are manipulated deftly; as much toaawili balance a tive-vent pief i put into each cup, and the same quan tity of water bi ivnired over each sample of tea, Thn the acuie sense of the tea taster sweep the fteltl. It nmsi not be supposetl that this citntiiiuous taster of teas drinks hotheads of the samples, or even that he drinks at all. The t-e taster dtes not neces sarily put a mp to his lips. Tea is tested to s"iue 'tent by the appearance of the leaf, bui chielh by infusion, as jast rteMcriUl. It is tiie sens-of smell that does the business. Said a tea tater; Everything tastes as it smeiK I liave heard it said Uiat if a man's nostrils could be, held iMrle-tly tight, be could not determine by Ids p;ilatc whii-h of two sulmtancea, a pietv of raw jMKato or oni.iu, was plaeetl in hi month. At any rate, 1 can determine a iptality or grade of tea as periet tly by etuell as by taste, and all the best tasters judge by the smell." Witiout infusion the laster can often determine just how a sample of tea will draw by tlte peculiar twist of the leaf and lU tinell. "Can you carry in yor memory the differ ent k redes or kinds of tea so as to identify them if the same come up atcain, after the lajise of eoine Hmef "To a cousiderabtc extent we can. If there is anything peculiar about a kind or lot of tea. we remember it, autl can pick it out at once if it ever comes up again. Of course, the standaid classes of teas are always recog nized at once by an expert." "fs tern tasting injurtomr' "No, not at all. There are some men who are somewhat aftV-ted by it eo that they are ii-stless at night, after having gone through ith a csi-fin of ten, Utt it never effects roe at all. In tad , tea tating cannot be so harmful as the constant tasting of sujrarx. etc While on this nint it is a somew hat significant fact to note iliat nearly all tea taters drink Con don tea It is the finest tea and least injuri ous. Anotlter thiiif. the secret of giving satisfaction in teas is toe furnishing of an am-that is of good strength and body. Tuat is ihe Luwl of tea which suite our Ieople." Boston Heiald.
