Tlie churning must he done eve-y other day at the farthest, without re gard to the amount of cream gathered.

The leadiug ana most, common cause is starvation, for it is not too muoii to say that the average farmer, who either pi mts outau orcn ard for himself or buys a farm with one already planted, afterwards goes on treating the laud as though that orcnard did not exist, cropping It with wheat, oats, rye, etc., iu a rota tion, or want of rotation, until the wonder is, not that the trees uo not heir satisfactory crops, but that they arc alive at all. For onion growing the soil should be thoroughly plowed and welt har rowed just previous to sowing setd. If the coil is not rich it should bo well fertilized.

The Mikado Bold a State Reception, rreseuta Are'Glren and Heeelired The Celebration Continue Sereral Days A Universal lllrthday Onicr Customs. (Special Correspondence. San Fbanctsoo. Dec. 17. The greatest of all Japanese festivals is New Year's. Formerly it waa reckoned according to the Chinese calendar, but now the Gre gorian method is nsed, so the first day of the Japanese new year is the same as ours the 1st day of January. All classes, from the emperor to the coolie, participate in thtu festival, and the latter probably enjoys himself more than the former. For the mikado the day begins at 5 a. m., as at that hour he receives the princes of the blood, who come to offer their congratulations. EATING JAPANESE MACARONI. Tbe emperor and certain princes of the highest rauk pay a visit of rever ence and respect to the tombs of the heavenly ancestors and offer branches of the sakaki tree the emblem of pu rity sacred to the dead. This ceremony if so slight a per formance cau be called a ceremony is not Buddhist but Shintoist in char acter, for Shinto is the established na tional though nearly defunct religion of Japan. All day long the emperor receives his subjects and the foreign embassadors, the highest in rank coming earliest in the day and tbe lowett last. Presentation at court is held nowa days according to the etiquette of the British court that is to say, gentlemen must wear full dress suits, and ladies trains six feet long. On the second or third day the mikado usually has a magnificent garden party, wbich is the most interesting of all the imperial celebration. Every one gives and receives presents. Among the wealthy tbe offerings may be handsome antique lacquer, boxes, costly satsume vases, magnificent bronzes. The poor people can boast numerous pres ents, too, though not 60 expensive per haps. A little basket of oranges or a dozen eggs are very popular presents. Tradesmen send their customers small offerings,-usually of something in their line of business. A grocer will give ier haps a pound of sugar or a little package of rice. Every present, large or small, costly or inexpensive, is accompanied by a lit tle folded three cornered pajier, a few inches in size. Sometimes this is of crimson or gilt paper or sometimes bln or silver, according to the taste of the sender. The origin of this custom is very an cient and curious. In days of old a piece of dried fish waa sent with each gift, but gradually people full into a vicious habit of sending on the same piece of fish with the next present they 6ent away, as if they received so many of ferings they could not possibly eat all the fish that came. Finally matters got to such a pitch that a geutleman could frequently 6mell bis present coming around the corner; so in order to do away with thu abuse those little pieces of paper were substituted. Another custom that seems very Btrange in our eyes is that of sending presents of eatables, sweetmeats, inochi or bean cake, etc. Such dainties aie sent in pricoloss bowls of cloissono or sntsunia set ou a lacquer tray. Over all Is thrown a silk and gold embroidered square of soft ribbed crape, and the messenger carries it through the street held at arm's length. The recipient eats the contents, and without washing or cleaning the bowl in any way returns it and the cover with elaborate thanks. The little, shops, which look like dry goods boxes set up on end, are filled with gay toys, with dolls, kites and bits BATTLEDOOR AND SHUTTLECOCK.' of tinsel and dyed features made into tiny ornaments for the ebony hair of the brilliantly dressed, powdered aud rouged little girls. Acrobats and street actors attract crowds of not only children, but their elders. Then there are Punch and Judy shows, but Punch and Judy are replaced by fabulous cats, badgers and foxes, who play all sorts of tricks upon men and women. Conjurers and snake charmers reap a harvest, and the man who makes and plays bamboo flutes earns a small for tune. Every one, from little tots of six or seven to grand dames of sixty or seventy, plays battledoor and shuttlecock. And Bnch gorgeous battledoors as were never before soenl Great, awkward pieces of board, plain on one side, the othr elaborately decorated with a f ir ure of a noted dancer, or geisha, the hands and face painted on the wood, but the dress of silk or paper pasted on and Etanding an inch or more above the board. The shuttlecock is a gilded seed fctuck around wjth dyed feathers until it resembles a flower. It is a very pretty game to watch, as most Japanese are very expert at it and can keep the sunttlecock from falling to the ground apparently without the slightest effort. Eo3s wearing enormous masks like lions or tigers heads rush out from be hind house corners and terrify their surprised playmates. All the city is given np to amusement and pleasure. Tlie house decorations are very quaint and pretty. Across the main entrance a straw rope with a deep fringe is stretched to keep out oni, or devils, and the little pieces of paper fasteued to it are pray ers for prosperity and good health. About the center of the rope i fas tened a crab, a bunch of ferns and some oranges. Each of these decorations has its meaning tbe crab signifying a wish thu t tha Inmate mar liva to D9 SO old that they will U bent Ilka th crb The Urns, whlcu are sua vs jmi on new helm tkat there may be plenty of chil flrra to carry on the name before the parents die. The orange is emblematic of fraitfulnesa and abundance. Each side of tbe threshold stands a fir trsa bound to a bamboo. These are the ptaea of mntual old age the black fir tha father and the red the mother of the household and a hope' ia thus indi catad that the parents may grow old to gether. The bamboo means a straight forward aud upright mind. , On New Year's evo haudfnla of. beans iwe thrown aliout the rooms and over tae threshold to exorcise evil spirits who may bo about. Bwfera the new year the merchants endeavor to get in all tho money that is owed to them, and to piy or settle their own debts. As a consequence uvmy things can be bought very cheaply at the end of the year, for ready money js the grwat desideratum. . Men carrying trays of something look inj lake white worms go through the streets crying, "ieoba, soba!" the Japa nese form of macaroni which, eaten with soy sauce, is a favorite delicacy witfc the coolies and jiuriknha men. For their little customers these men make all sorts of figures of devils, gods and animals from this paste. Other men go about with a portable hibache, or brazier,, and some batter, and for three sen a couple of children can obtain the use of tbe brazier and enough ourinsccr winter costume of Japanese women. bcitc kes to make them ill for a 'Er&. fW principal attraction being that tl qr ae allowed to cook the cakea thein sefcraa. Tlkangh a considerable quantity of ga&e, r rice whisky, is drunk, little or no drwuiennvss ia seen, and no intoxicated man ar to be met iu the streets. lu dead the J;uanese are a very temperate people, drunkenness aud opium smoting beisj very rare vices among them. Tie first of tho year is really a sort of double festival, for the Japanese, like the Chinese, reckon their age from that data! A child born twenty-four hours before New Year's day is called one year old oil that day, so that it is the birth day of all the Japanese jieople. Usually the weather is very cold, and often there i-i a light fall of snow. Whan this is the case fhe children are delighted, 'for then they can indulge in snowballing and make snow figures of Daruna, a Chinese sage, who is said In have eomo from India to China in the Six 111 century and to have fallen in si deep a fit of meditation that he sat l-i the same spot until he lost the use of his ld. The wiuter costume of Japanese wom en consists of heavily wadded dresses, and the only visible difference lies in a silk or crape kerchief they wear over the head, a very becoming arrangement which requires considerable knack to put on properly. Tha new year celebration lasts nearly a week and only gradually dies out. IIi.L,F.N ii REOOUY-FLESUER.

Fatrchild the Only Member of the Old Cabinet AVho May Jie Keappointed. Why Whitney Will Not Accept Office. Iiiaao Puacy Gray's Proppcta. ISpecial Correspondence. Washington, Dec. 22. It is difficult to realise that we are . within three months aud less of a new administra tion. In a few weeks the newspapers will lie filled day after day with gosdip concerning the formation of the new president's cabinet. Let us 'anticipate our frieuds of the daily dispatches a lit tle and see if we cau throw any light upon the important and interesting topic of what Mr. Cleveland ia likely to do and not to do. I think I can eay without fear of con tradiction that Mr. Cleveland is going to be a very large part of the new ad ministration himself. . He always waa accustomed to having his way about things, and as he grows older aud meets with new successes it i3 very natural that this habit should become more no ticeable. One hears about twenty times a day in Washington the prediction that in lesa thau six months Mr. Cleveland will be the most cordially hated and lu ridly cursed man in the Democratic party that is to say, his own party friends will be cur.-ing him. Tins may be true, but if it is I imagine that Mr. Cleve land isu't losing auy sleep about it. There are numerous and unmistakable indications that wheu he comes to the White House for the second time Mr. Cleveland will take up the cares of his great office with the supreme satisfac tion of feeling that he is going to do what ho pi oases and bother the conse quences. It is an oild thing, but a president of the .United States, the most powerful official of this continent and one of the greatest rulers .of the world, is under ordinary circumstances a man who soon becomes noted for not having his own way. A president who wants to Ik; re elected and nearly all presidents do, sooner or later must bow the knee to a horde of politicians great and small or bid farewell to any hope of succeeding himself. If he stands rtp and fights and has his own way about things, he will become unpopular, will be cursed from Maine to Texas and will not bo renominated or re-elected. If he succumbs to the. in fluence of the politiciaus and submits to their domination, he will advertise him Belf to the country as a man too pliant and weak to be trusted with the great responsibilities of the office. In seeking a happy mean between the two ex tremes a president of the United States is one of the most laiserable, most harassed and most unhappy mortals on the face of the earth. This brings me to a point which 1 have often mado before in these letters. It is that we are surely coining to a change in our constitution which will forbid the re-election of a president. , Men of all parties are now agreed that it is nnwise to choose a man as his own successor in 1 ho presidential chair. . The politicians are agreed that it is only un der exceptional circumstances, such as war or danger of war, that a president can be re-elected, even if it is then desirable. Cleveland tried it and failed; Harrison tried it and fajled. The trou ble ia that during his first term a presi dent necessarily makes so many enemies that when the campaign for his re-election comes on he ia inevitably weaker than his party. Slill more serious is the influence which a renomination has upon the pol iticians and local leaders throughout the country. They s;iy: 4,Oh, what differ ence does it make to us whether this man is elected again or not? Ho didn't give us au office during tho present term, and if we turn to and help him to a second term wo aro (-imply working Ka ket p in ollice the fe llows who are already there." But if a new m;m is put up ti e meu who already hold good jobs turn in aud work in hope of keeping them, and the chaps who are ou the outside pull off their coats iu hope of getting in. Besides thero is some peculiar quality in the public mind which welcomes change. The people become tired of the very name of a president. They become tired of gossip about him and stories which illustrate his character and meth ods. They would like to see a new sun rise in tho horizon. They have aii in stinctive, even if unconscious, craving for novelty. In four years alxmt all the sentiment there is in the personality of a president is dissipated in tho popular mind. Four years ago the people were a little weary of - G-rover, whose strong charac ter and certain mental peculiarities had at first strangely attracted them. Last month they gave evidence that the senti ment which ''Little Ben" had roused iu them was no longer a force. When you come to think about it, sentiment is after all tho biggest thing in the world. It beats money aud brains all to pieces. Andrew Jackson obtained his marvel ous hold upon the people of our earlier republic because his rude character and uncouth manners were just suited to fill and satisfy fhe imagination of the times. He was a heroic figure, and his clay pijie aud "By the Eternal!" did more to main tain him in power than all his craft and wisdom. It was the same with Lincoln, the next president after Jackson who appealed to the popular imagination. Of course Lincoln was a great, a wonderful man. as we see him now, but when he was proposed for a second term there were plenty of p oj.le who did not take the view of him which history takes. Yet tho sentiment which attached to "Old Al," and the rail splitting, and the sto ries, and the anecdotes about his tender ness of heart aud homeliness of speech made him invincible iu the face of pow erful opposition. Of course General Grant obtained a second term alino.-t without a struggle. A great military hero like Grant could never be over turned ia a ;opular election in this coun try ia the generation of the struggle in which ho had distinguished himself. Mr. Cleveland will come in with the advantage of four years' exierience and four years more of observation from the outside. If Iio cau't make a good presi dent this time, there is no virtue in op portunity. There is one thing that I do not think Mr. Cleveland will do, and that is to ap point any member of his old cabinet to a plate in the new miuistry. If there is any exception to this rule, it will proba bly be found in the case of Mr. Fair- child, who was secretary of the treasury after the death of Manning. Mr. Fair child is not only a warm personal friend of the new president, bat he is an able and experienced finaucier. I hear from very good sources that if Mr. Fairchild will make the sacrifice of income neces sary to enable him to come to Wasbmgy ton and work four years for Uncle Savu for a salary that will keep his jVses ahd nav his house rent aud leave 'hia oher tu come out oi niaTVivaio purse he iiv.ay be tusked to taki 14 old Dot at the head of the treaAu;- jlpari- tneni, . . ., . -X ' ClevelaaJV former cabinet, W. C. Whit ney, will not come to Washington with Mr. Cleveland this time. Shall I bluntly tell you why? Because Mr. Whitney does not wish to incur tho risk of quar reling with his rioud, tbe president elect, which service iu his cabinet would involve. This sounds like a queer state ment, but it is true nevertheless. - If any man in the world kuows Mr. Cleveland, it is W. C. Whitney. He knows how great and strong Cleveland is, and also how stubborn and unreasonable he is when the spirit moves him. They man aged to get through one administration together aud tho recent campaign, but iu both of these trials there was often more ot less danger of rupture. From whi.t I have heard I think ft 6afe to say Whitney is tho only man who could have '4managed" Cleveland with out a row through the last six mouths. If thero hadu't been so much at stake for themselves & .d their party tho fur would have been flying in tho surround ing atmosphere more than onoe. But the election is over, and Mr. Cleveland's future is fixed. He will serve as presi dent ijur years and after that will re tire to a well earned rest. He knows this as well as auy one, t,nd he knows belter than auy of us how much fun he is going to have during the next four years in the solid way of doing what he likes, irrespective Of Tom, Dick or Harry. He and Whitney are now good friends, and Mr. Whitney is wise enough to avoid putting any unnecessary strains upon their relations. There is an idea abroad in the laud that Whitney is to be the heir of the Cleveland political estate, and he doesn't want to have auy TOW with the testator. Mr. Bayard won't be in the new cab inet for a good many reasons. Mr.' Bay ard has lost his grip as a public man and always was somewhat overrated. Besides he is not financially able to in dulge the luxury of a cabinet office. .Don Dickinson wants to make some ruouey, too, and "doesn't hanker for the job of running the postofrice depart ment. Mr. Dickinson told me the other day that the postoffice department ia the most dirticult branch of the entire government to manage. It apiears to be well orgauized, and is in most ways, but the duties of tho postmaster general are just what they were when tho gov ernment was started. Technically he is supposed to do the whole business, and while this is physically impossible the law requires him to do so much, to at tend to so mauy matters in person, to sign such an enormous number of letters and documents that a P. M. G. must work harder than any slave of mine or mill. I shouldn't be surprised if General Pat Collins, of Boston, were in the new cab inet. Cleveland is fond of him, and Col lins isn't a bit afraid of Cleveland. There is a strong probability that Governor Gray, of Indiana, will be a member. There is a little history about this which perhaps I shouldn't mention. It is to the effect that during tho recent cam paign things didn't look well for Democ racy in Indiana. The Gray men were holding back. They had mt the vice presidency at the Chicago convention and weren't happy. Governor Gray win invited to go and see Mr. Cleveland. Ho went. In order to get Gray iido good humor Mr. Cleve land s:iid just u little more thau he had exjiecttd to say, and now the governor counts on Veing called to a seat lit the council board. The truth is, Mr. Cleve land doesn't want him und yet cannot just oeo how ho is to get out of it hon orably. So even the self willed and do-as-you-plcase Mr. Cleveland cannot al ways live on Easy street. I should be very much surprised if Mr. Carlisle were to be secretary of the treasury. He is talked of, but he doesn't want tho honor aud isn't fitted for the work. He is too great a man to le sec retary of the treasury. He is a student, a thinker and an orator not a mau oi business, not a desk slave, not a trained executive. In such a place he would be a conspicuous failure, just as in the sen ate he is an adornment to American public life mid intellectuality. For much the hame reason I should not think Mr. Cleveland would take Colonel Morrison, of Illinois, into his cabinet. Colonel Morrison knows a good deal about the tariff question and is one of tho most admirable characters onr public service has ever produced, but he has few qualifications for the sec retaryship of the treasury. , Where v. ill Jit Cleveland find aaecre tary of state? It is a queer thing, but in all our list of present statcsuieu there is not one that fills the bill for this honor. Mr. Carlislo would be better for that than for finnucc but he is too pxr. Sen ator Gray, of Delaware, comes well to ward the ideal, but I make my guess a to the man who will get it Jainej C.
