The season approaches when the attention of parents of Infant children needs to bo called to the cruelty which Is thoughtlessly practiced upon so many helpless Infants by bending them out under a summer sun In baby carriages , lying down , face up , with only the miserable apology of a light colored - orod canopy the slzo of a parasol to shield their tender eyes from the rays of tlio sun , Very often , too , the canopy Is lined \yUh white stuiT Instead of dark green or some other llijht-nbsorbing color. Nor Is It only Ignorant or careless nurses who do this cruel thing. Mothers by the score may be seen trundling their pets along as unconscious of their own cruelty as Is the child , with It.s squinting and Inlliunou eyes , nwaro of the cause of its misery. The best medical authorities agree that no inconsiderable portion of the chronic eye dls oases are developed by this sort of exposure to Infants In a recumbent position. And , In * dootl. It could not bo otherwise. Let an ) adult try It on a hot day.

If you have dotio much shopping you must have noticed that moro men that women are employed at the dress goods counters. It oc curred to the writer to ask If there was any reason for this. The manager replied , Just as If ho had been expecting some ono to ask the question : "There nro several reasons for It. Women do not llko to tuko the say-so of their sex on dress goods ; men have better Ideas of combination than women ; men uro moro diplomatic In dealing with women than saleswomen aro. A saleswoman can accom plish more nt some other counters than men. Hut at the dress goods counter men tnako best employes. S'nu would naturally think that a woman could grab tin n plcco of goods and show it to advantage. I never saw ono that could do It. Few women nro good Judges of combinations of colors on the counters. A modiste Is , of course , but a woman cannot always have a modlsto with her when she gocs'stiopplni. . Men who are In this business tuko to a thing like combining colors as naturally as ducks take to water. They seem o know us soon as they see n woman what vill become her In the way of dress goods. Phoro are many articles in suclt a store as his which women nrofer to buy of their own .ex. . but when It comes to dress goods they ircfer to deal with men.

Motli-rn Dairy Method * . With the introduction of patent ma- ihlnos , and the study of chemistry us ipplfed to articles of food , butter mak- ng hits certainly improved. Hut a few nrmers still adhere to the idea that Ihoir old method is as good , if not superior , to the new fangled notions. As in illustration of this , nays , J. 1) . Mor- ow in American C'lltivator , I net a farinor a short time igo who was getting only 10 cents a pound for his butter , while a few of his moro progressive neighbors were receiving twenty-live ind thirty. lie thought It was all duo , o the trickery of the commission men , jut the fact was , ho ignored all the nodorn improvements in butter making , lacking and shipping. His butter when t reached the market was In a woeful condition , and the wonder is that It Drought the price it did Fanners have jot to keep abreast of the times if they wish to suei'eed , and it is no nso of in terposing their whims and assert ing that their ways cannot bo im proved upon. The modern methods of lairying are interesting and instructive. Tlio best butter shipped to the largo Hies is carefully made after seine sys tematic process. When the co'.vs are milked , the milk is taken to the cistern , where it is strained into cans and low ered into the cold water below. The water in the cistern should never get much warmer tlian 53 degrees in sum mer , nor colder than 40 degrees in win- tor. Tlio milklngs should bo about twelve hours apart , and the milk re main in the cistern between the milk- ings. The cans are then taken up nnd removed to the house , where it is skim med at onco. The cream is kept in some tin vessel until it acidulates , or com- inonco1 ; ! to thicken. When now cream is put in the whole mess Is stirred. At a tompuraturo of G2 degrees the cream is churned to granulation. When the but termilk is drawn off , frpsh well water washes out all traces of butter milk. The butter is then ready to salt. Noth ing but good dairy salt should be used , and if no more is put in than will dis solve there will not bo much danger of salting the butter too much. The butter Is hold over by some for twelve hours or more for reworking before It is packed away ; but others pack it soldly In tubs at once with a common butter ladle. Butter that is to bo transported to dis tant cities should not be packed in prints , for it will get mussy and unat tractive looking before its destination is reached. Good butter properly packed In tubs will answer all purposes , and will sell at a good price. Hood's Sarsaparilla has the largest sale of any medicine before the public. Any honest druggist will confirm this statement. CropH nnd the Seoil 1'r .lilem. The heaviest failures in the west last season were on corn , while wheat was but little below an average crop and as seed wheat was much moro easily ob tained by western farmers than corn there has been a , larger area of it sown in this st'.ite than over before , while the corn acreage is not as largo as it would have been had the seed purchasing com mittee boon as well posted on the needs of seed for western Nebraska as they are on politics , law , real estate and the mer- cantllo business , says tlio Nebraska Farmer. It is true that it was late when the seed appropriation bill passed and then moro delay was had by this inex perienced purchasing committee inform ing themselves as to what was needed and whore to got it. Instead of ascer taining the fact that there was plenty of very choice seed wheat in the western - orn part of the state that could have been bought and delivered to those , who had none for less money and at little or no cost of transportation , this com mittee purchased the wheat , oats and barley of the elevator and grain commis sion men at Lincoln and in the east ern part of the state , and. after consider able delay had it transported from two hundred to three hundred and fifty miles west. Then bo much small grain was purchased that the appropriation left was so meagre that the seed corn did not roach half far enough. A num ber of seedsmen and farmers who had good seed corn for sale brought in 01 sent in samples but after being put oil from day to day on various pretexts thoj were finally "froze out" and went homo and the grain buyers and elevator men sold the seed to the purchasing committee - too , much of it being poor , mixed ami inferior toed , suoh as many good farm ers would not bow or plant if it wore given to thorn. Tlio wheat prospect was hover more flattering in southwestern Nebraska nor moro advanced than a the present time.

'lie Opening of the Canadian Parlia ment nn Imposing Affair The Governor General's Grand nnil InipoHltiK Dinner. OTTAWA , Canada , May 11. ( Special to THE inn. ] If the Canadian aristocrat were not sscntlally n copyist ho would bo a nononlty. 'hero Is a striking scarcity of originality of nanncrs , dress , speech , and as a social ani- ml , observable in the Canadian swell. He akes the Englishman of high degree as his rototype , aud adheres to him with a faith- illness that would be commendable In a anine pet. Ho ndmlrns everything English , rom the vintage of Ills wlno and the brand of ils threc-for-n-ciimrter cigars to the opening ind closing of parliament at Ottawa. Ho tops along In pants of the same check or tripe as his English model , he dons the dentlcnl cut of coat , and looks over a collar ho height of which Is correct to the fraction f an inch. In fact , In Ottawa , which Is an exaggerated village , they attempt a close : opy in every respect of London , and it must bo admitted they cot tbero with tolernblo ac- uracy. During session the social functions ire very numerous , and "quite English , you mow. " The cabinet ministers of the doniin- on house circulate the doings of tholr im perial confreres bv giving "at homes" and stltT. formal dinners , with the regulation sin- , , 'ln stud shown in an aero of shirt front on heir ministerial bosoms. The ladies , too , are always on hand with an exact , reproduction of London style , moving around 1 lite an uni- tinted fashion-plate of decolletto dresses , ; > nint and powder. Llko the English dames : hey also are shocked at the long distance 'iom the floor of the abbreviated dress of the ballet , but the distance of their own from the ceiling is apparently all right , though their otherwise sacred persons are exposed beyond mention to the vulgar gaze. Human nature s assuredly a creature of circumstances , but added to that the girl of the period and the mltattnc aristocrat are pitifully the slaves of fashion In all Its demands and vagaries. The opening and closing , conduct and con trol of the Canadian parliament , with Its nodes of procedure , are all also necessarily milt on British lines and make up a very .ruthful representation with faithful at- : empts nt London grandeur , awe and effect , fhu parliamentary nnd departmental build- tigs occupy four sides of nn immense square and make up the finest group of collossal ljulldings on the American continent. Par liament House itself has a truly inaKiilllccnt appearance , standing on top of nn immense ill ! at the foot of whose wooded slopes wends the grand Ottawa river on Its way to the sea via the St. Lawrence. In many respects .Ills threat building is not unlike the imperial house at Westminster. The areliitoturo Is rich , ornate and extremely eflcctive , In cream colored stone relieved by red sandstone , with a high square tower in the centre , the liasoof wliich is a high-pillared , deeply-fluted irch forming the main entrance , and which indeed denotes the division of the building nto house of commons and senate chambers. Though the Interior grandeur is far away behind the house still " imperial , "magnifi cence" is not an apt expression when one re members the high marble pillars In the main corridors , the expensive tapestry and hand some upholstery , the elegant suites of rooir- , chambers and oftlccs , the lofty corridors , liung with innumerable life size oil paintings of admired and revered statesmen and other valued sons of Canada. There are also the commodious dining rooms , etc. . postofllccs , telephones nnd press rooms. To sum up , everything.Is handsome , complete aud com fortable. The constitution of the Canadian parliament is based on a federal government since the confederation of the seven provinces lu 18117. By tbo British North American act passed in the Imperial house In that year , the executive government of and over Canada is vested In Queen Victoria who , every live years , appoints a governor general to act for nor to reside in Ottawa at Canadian expense and salary. Ho is virtually king of Canada under the subjection of the British constitu tion and as contained in tbo terms and condi tions of thn above act. The opening of a Canadian parliament Is calculated to be very imposing and includes a variety of social and oflicial state functions. The complete ceremony lasts exactly three days on ordinary occasions , out this being the lirst session of the seventh Canadian parlia ment , owing to the recent dissolution and general election , the appointment of u speaker had to be accomplished before the parliamentary machine could bo set in motion. This little matter occupied Wednes day of last week , the formal opening ceremonies monies beginning the following day , The position , functions and duties of speaker are exactly similar to those of the imperial onso. Ho guides all the procedure of the house , conducts the debate and has various other duties. He has a suite of apartments in the building aud is paid a salary of $4,000 a year. The members are paid 11,000 with 10"cents a milo traveling expenses. Cabinet oflteers are paid $ SOt)0. ) Members of the im perial house are not paid. The parliament of Canada Is composed of the upper house or senate similar to the house of lords nnd equally as useful ( t ) or otherwise , and the house of commons. The senators are elected for life by the governor general and number nearly ono hundred ; there are about two hundred and ilfty commoners with the con servatives in power with a majority of half a hundred. The opening ceremonies were be gun on Thursday April 80 , with great pomp and eclat. Her majesty having summoned her faltnful commoners and senators for the transaction of business , bright and early the city was astir whilst the Union Jack waved from every available flagstaff. Towards the afternoon , in clorious weather , a squadron of the Princess Loulso dragoon guards in their brilliant uniforms and waving plumes proceeded to the government uouio about two miles from the capital , to escort the governor general and staff to the house , ( the governor always opens parlia ment in person in the name of the queen ) . At the same tlmo the Ottawa Held battery took up a commanding position near parliament building , whilst the governor general's foot guards , in the scarlet , uniform and white facings of tiio Cold stream guards of Englandwore marching from their drill shed , headed by their line band , to take positions in front ot the Dulldlngs and lor in a guard of honor of 100 men. This having allbcen simultaneously ac complished , amid excitement anil hustling , the crowds along the route and around the buildings were last becoming dense. With patient expectancy they await the approach of the magnificent pageant , whilst the sun beats fiercely down and dust Jlios In clouds. "Hero they cotno ! Hero they cornel" echoes from n thousand throats and amid the boom ing of the guns of the artillery and tbo play ing of "Ood Save tne Queen" by the bauds , accompanied by the hurrahs of the people , two magnigcently appointed state carriages drawn by teams of heavily caparisoned black thoroughbredsdrlvo up to the main entrance , surrounded by the dragoon guards , whilst the foot guards present arms , aud Uio strains of the national anthem die away In the roai of the cannons a short distance off. The governor general dismounts from the llrsl carriage , followed by his nldos-de-campand staff , all In brilliant uniforms of reu and weld braid. There is also prescnl Sir John M'letonald Canada1 ! veteran conservative statesman ana leader of tbo government , dressed in the uniform of her majesty's Imperial privy council , of which ho Is a member. The party are at once con voyed to the senate- chamber lu which nro a ready gathered in this handsome hall al ! the feminine elite and decolletto grandeur 01 Ottawa city and district , judges of the su preme court In robes and wigs , senators , cab inet ministers unU many other dignitaries , The governor is slowly conducted to tbo throne , whilst all uro upstanding. In solemn silence ho commands the attendance of the faithful gentlemen of the house of commons who meantime have assembled lu their owi chamber , and are probably killing time side ing blue books or other available missiles at cuch other. On the command from the gov ernor the usher of tlio black rod bonds low enough to look between his legs throe times a proceeding that denotes thros gracofu bows. Insldo the commons chamber all is fun antl amusoir.ent , when suddenly threes Knocks on the door startle them Into silence The borgeant-at arms , with his heavy sword proceeds to discover the cause ol the dls Just the same , AND SO ; DOES MADE ONCT BY N.K.FAIRBANK&CO.

" "Admit him , " Is the command , ind .shouldering the heavy mnce , ho admits .he uihcrwho delivers his message with a few more bows nnd retires. Immediately there Is n scamper to the senate chamber , and amid silence the governor reads tlio "speech from the throne" nnd Canada's par- lament Is again opened , The night of the ipenlng the governor holds a state dinner at us residence , which Is aduty Incumbcntupon dm , nnd on Saturday night he held a "draw- ng room" and reception In the senatu chain- jcr , according to custom nnd in further copy of royal uloriousncss and pomp the following wore presented : 1. cabinet ministers and those gentlemen having right of private entree with their wives and daughters : 'J. senators with their wives and daugh ters ; ! ) , members ot the house of commons with their wives and daughters , and lastly the other ladles and gentlemen at tending the drawing room. It will thus bo seen that everything is thoroughly Hrltlsli , and that the procedure Is a close copv to that performed in the Uritish parliament. Ht Hon. Sir John A. Macdonald , ( . ! . C. U. , D.

Nub. , furnishes tlio following valuable suggestions to the Iowa Iloinestcnd for the prevention of smut in sinull grain : Mr. Kditor : In No. Hi for 18'Jl appears an article on oats smut anil also the remedy. Perhaps it would bo of interest to the many readers of your valuable pupnr to know the precaution taken bv farmers in this locality to prevent smut in grain. The day toforo wo wish to commence ccdinpr wo drop the grain in a strong solution of blue vitriol , about ono-fourth of a pound of vitriol for every bushel of grain. The method we em ploy is as follows : Take two empty bar rels , bore an inch hole near the bottom of each , tack a piece of gauze wlro on the Inside of tbo barrels over the holes , cork the holes in both barrels , dissolve the vitriol and put it lu ono of the barrels , with water enough to till the barrel threc-llfths full ; uow llll with wheat , draw the water from the llrst barrel into tlio second , empty the wheat from the llrst barrel and llll the second with wheat , adding more water and vitriol when necessary to keep the solution at the desired strength. The above treatment has proved to ho a thorough success to prevent smut In small grain In this locality. I am also ex- Dcrimonting with corn and will give results In full If desired. Wo should bo glnd to hear from Mr. Jones when ho reaches results with his corn experiments. The corn crop in Jown lust year sustained a loss of from 5 to 10 per cent , from smut , a loss thai it is well worth taking a good deal of pains to avoid. Wo would suggest that in his experiment it would bo well not to plant corn soaked unless the around is also quiet wot. Wo once planted late and to hasten germination soaked a part of the seed. The part of the Hold which was planted with so.iicoj siaJ w.u ; ) ui lj ably behind the rest of tlio Hold through out the entire season. The only way wo could account for it was that the soaking started the shoots and that then the dryer earth drew the water away from the seed , by that process of equalization that is always going on in iiaturo , leav ing it with less than enough to sustain it at the rate nt which it started. Chocked growth is like a relapse in sickness , leaving the plant or the patient worse than at llrst. Whether this explanation bo good or not , the fact remains certain to our mind that soaked corn should not bo planted until it has been thoroughly dried , unless the ground is in exceptionally good con dition as to moisture. As wo have said , wo nope to hear from Mr. Jones' corn experiment in the fall. As A Rule Your own feelings will tell you , when you are in need of a tonic or Blood purifier. A lack of energy , a tired feeling , depressed spirits are good indications that the blood is sluggish and your system is out of order. "I HAVE U E J S. S , S.
