It seems rather curious to recall the fart that very little more than 100 Drake circumnavigated the globe his sailing across these waters was seri ously resented by Spain, which de manded restitution to her of the plun der he took, but Queen Elizabeth made a haughty reply. Not long before the close of the last century the Spanish crown again began to make a fuss be cause its monopoly of the Pacific was infringed on. It ordered the eomman- Qo", danger/* of San Francisco to 'The Enirlisrnan went nwnv nmin I Columbia, the first vessel that carried spizc tho Spaniards, though discoverers of new lands and waters, were among the poorest navigators of their time. After coming upon the Solomon islands tliey could not find them again, and thev were lost for 150 years. The water supply of their galleons was not kept in casks, but iu big earthen jars. As it was impossible to provide a sufficient supply for a six months' voyage on board of a ship carrying 400 or HOO peo ple they always took to sea great num bers of mats. Whenever it rained the mats wore spread to catch the drops, which were drained off into jars through split bamboos. The mortality from scurvy on long trips was fright ful. Cortes, after the conquest of Mexico, fitted out three small ships to sail to the Moluccas and reinforce the Span iards there. They were scattered by a tempest and two of them were lost. One of these is imagined to have been the strange vessel which was wrecked on the rocks of Hawaii about the same time as nearly as can be reckoned. According to tradition only the captain and his sister were saved. The natives received them kindly and gave them food- They intermarried with the Iln waiians and became the progenitors of certain well known families of chiefs. In early times Hie control of land on the Hawaiian islands was held by the ruling chiefs, who reserved what por tion they pleased for their own use and divided the rest among the leading men subject to them. The position of the latter was analogous to that of the I 1U IL'l WilS Le samp tnhlp Karons of European feudalism.

It is said to be as eiticacious iu its way as gar gling the throat, with which process it should be combined. The reason stated is that during the act of yawn ing there is considerable stretching of the muscles of the larynx and soft palate, which are in rhis way put through a sort of massage besides this, in the act of yawning, the throat tubes contract and drive into the phar ynx the mucus that has accumulated.

A Strong Plea For System in Farm ing— dulphur for Fowls—Sheep In Utah--Preparin Potato Seed Something Worth Knowing -Pointers. A Strong: Plea tor System in Farming Drifting, drifting, drifting! Floating along with the current dropping into the ruts slipping into the paths point ed out by existing circumstances! This is as 1 see the great mass of farmers moving this is the cause of so many failures, of "straightened cii'cum stances," of mediocre resists and al most fruitless labor. This it is that makes farm life the "humdrum" ex istence so many realize, barren of satis factory results, fruitless in much that helps to render life pleasant and at tractive. Many a farmer is there who never dreaming of planning for more than the single season, while there are others who permit conditions as they find them to dictate their course of action. One will go out over his fields in the spring, select a little spot of an acre or two where the grass is failing and "guess I will put a little corn here." Some other spot for like reason will be selected for potatoes, and so it goes in a series of "patch work" all over the farm and all through the season. The plowing, harrowing, cultivating, etc., are all performed at a cost augmented because of the small scale upon which the work is done. A little com is pro duced and fed to the hogs a small crop of oats for the horses a little wheat and a few bushels of potatoes for family use, anil nothing to put into market to be converted into cash. Now to those fanners v. w are always "hard up," who never have any money to spend for the pleasure that makes life attractive, let me urge you to give up your aimless life and learn to do ome thing, to accomplish results. 'Jive up "playing at farming drop the little boy manner of doing things, and work with some aim in view and some sys tem as a guide. If you own a farm of fifty or one hundred acres or more, and it is fenced off into small fields, the first step neces sary will be to make a good substan tial fence around your pasture land and (if you can do no better) between your own and your neighbors', and stack your other fences out of the way. You cannot afford to spend your time with short furrows, hacking weeds in fence corners, etc. So arrange your work as to reduce useless expenditure of strength. The outside of a field always costs the most (proportionately) to keep clean. The larger 'he lield un der cultivation, the greater the econ omy in producing the crops. Decide what proportion of your land you de sire to plow each year. If one-fourth, then take it all up in one piece. Crops will not quarrel. You can just as well put your potatoes the whole length by the side of the corn or upon the end of the corn rows, and your garden truck upon the end of the potato rows, as to make a separate patch of each vari ety. I have lost much time for want of proper system in arrangement of crops. I now find it a great convenience to put them all together as far as practi cable. If I am cultivating my potatoes and wish to work in the garden truck an hour, the tools, horses and crops are all together. I don't have to load up my tools and fool away time going to some other part of the farm before I can begin to convert my labor into money. It is well to bear in mind in all your operations upon the farm that time is money, that you cannot af ford to do any work that can as well be avoided, and that a carefully ar ranged system of work to be followed out year after year will trim off the useless or worse than useless work that cuts off the profits wherever the work of the farm has not been care fully mapped out.—Ohio Farmer. Sheep for Utah. In 1892 Utah had 2,800,000 sheep, and it is by all odds the leading live stock industry of the territory. The ranges are about all fully stocked, how ever, and the increase from this time on will be slow. Utah has over 52.000, 000 acres of land, and little more than 2.000.000 can be used for agricultural purposes, even with irrigation. There 40,000,000 to 45.000.000 acres of range land, mountain and desert, which fur nishes a variety of feed—sage brush, bunch grass, etc., and on the mountain sides wild wheat, peavine, bushes and shrubs. The sheep are mainly of the Merino type, and will average 5 1-2 to 61-2 pounds to the fleece of wool. Shearing in done from the middle of April to the middle of .Tune. It is done, as elsewhere on the ranges, by gangs of men who make a business of it, and who are experts. A man who cannot shear 100 sheep in a day is not wanted. Owners run their tioclcs in 2,000 to 2,500, placed in charge of a competent man. who is paid $35 to $45 per month, including board. A company outfit is provided, consisting of team and wag on, tent, feed, provisions, etc. It takes one man to look after the outfit, do the cooking, and look after changing loca tion occasionally. A company outfit goes wit'li from one to three flocks. A good, carefill, steady man is put in charge, as upon him depends the suc cess of the flock and the profits of the business. The engraiving on the first page is from a photograph of one of herders' camps. The ruling price for Utah wool last year was 15 to 20 cents. Charles Crane of Millard county, who ranges about 20,000 French Merino grades, estimates the cost of keeping each sheep one year to be about 70 cents, and the clip of his flock runs from 81-2 to 14 pounds. Some EiiKlisli Experiments. Last year's field experiments cf the Norfolk chamber of agriculture afford information which may bo useful at the present time. The plots of bar ley to which one hundred and lifty pounds per acre of nitrate of soda was applied yielded an increase of nearly nine bushols per acre over those which received no manure. The addition of minerals only increased the yield two and a half bushels per acre. Salt did not improve the croD. In every ci se whore more than 100 pounds of nitrate of soda, or sulphate of ammonia, was applied, the crop went down more or less, and 200 pounds per acr# caused tho barley to be badly laid. In soilg of fair quality, not too strong, a dress ing of 150 pounds of nitrate of soda per acre in April has increased the crop of barley fifteen, bushels per acre, be sides the increase of straw. It is well known that wet weather during the winter and early spring months has the effect of washing out of the soil the more soluble constituents of plant food, especially the nitrogen, reducing the value of sheepfolds and other methods of dressing the land. We may expect to see some yellow grain this spring, both wheat and bar ley, and the Xorfolk experiments may serve to remind us that nitrate of soda has a magi -sl effect in restoring yellow grain to health and vigor. -Vpril and May are the months thnt these soluble dressings should be applied.—London Chronicle. Snl|iliar tor Fowls. There is no remedy and assistant 80 easUy and cheaply obtained, so harm less to the fowls, and so satisfactory in its results, says an exchange, as sul phur. It being in the system of animals to a small degree, there is a greater affinity for it than there otherwise would be. It can be administered to the fowls by having it in a 3mall box, so that they can help themselves, or by mixing it with their food once a week, or as often as there are indica tions of vermin. Penetrating, as it does, to every part of the system, all parasites are quickly and surely de stroyed also gapes are said to be pre vented in chickens. 1'owls need it more than animals, their feathers containing between 4 Something Worth Knowing. During the dry season of mid-sum mer the tires of the farmers' wagons become loose, and is the cause of much delay and vexation. A writer in the Ohio Farmer suggests a remedy that avoids taking the wagons to the black smith's shop to have the tire cut. His remedy consists in making a trough a little wider and deeper than the felloes of the wheel. Then heat linseed oil to boiling point and pour it in the trough, i Have everything so arranged that you can immediately turn the wheel slowly through the boiling oil. Two or three revolutions of each wheel in the boil ing oil is sufficient. If the business is quickly done one hearing of the oil is ample for four wheels, but usually a little boiling oil is added after treating the second wheel. The important point I in this process is that enough boiling oil is in the trough to cover the felloes as the wheel revolves—when there is a better job performed than the one done by the blacksmith. The whole cost I will be a few cents' worth of oil and a few minutes' work. The oil can be re- i turned back into the can to be retained for a future occasion. Preparing Potuto Seed. If the eye of the potato is allowed to grow in a warm, dark place it quickly saps all tho vigor from the shoot and also from the tuber, says American Cultivator. The slender white shoot is good for nothing to begin a healthy growrth, and it has taken so much of i the substance of the potato that it is valueless for seed or for eating. Ex posure to the sunlight and drying winds, however, make the seed better. Put the potatoes in a light, cool room, but one that will not freeze. The slower the green shoot pushes and the more the potato dries out the stronger will be its subsequent growth. It also makes a great difference in earliness. Some market gardeners who have learned this secret always get early potatoes in market before their neigh bors. They often cut the seed and spread it thickly so that it may dry out more than uncut seed and become more thoroughly greened. A sunburned potato utterly unfit for eating makes, because of that fact* all the better seed. Feeding Little Pigs. Teach little pigs to eat and drink when three or four weeks old. by put ting fresh milk into a shallow pan where the dam cannot overturn it, scattering some soaked corn around the pan. When the pigs will eat from the trough, give them a ration three times a day, made from 50 per cent midlings, 25 per cent corn meal, 15 per cent bran and 10 per cent oil meal, well moistened with skim milk or fresh swill. In crease the proportion of meal to the age of the pigs, until at six to ten months the ration may consist of half meal, 25 per cent middlings, 15 per cent bran and 10 per cent oil meal. Some Agricultural Pointer*. Fresh milch cows in the fall of the year are about as protitable as any stock that one can go into winter quar ters with. Don't' get it into your head that the only dairy worth having is the summer dairy. Fasture in summer, clover and roots in winter, will improve the health and vigor of the stock. At ten months of age, or butchering time, stock cared for as about outlined will average 300 pounds. Grow some carrots among other root crops. They may be put in as late as July, as they make the best growth after the nights become cool. All sorts of stock relish them and will make good use of a good big supply. The credit system in small dealings has about outlived its usefulness. The farmer who buys and sells for cash will come out at the end of the year in much better shape than the man who pays his store bill after his crops are sold—or worse yet, with his crops. Winter feeding is always an ex pensive matter, especially if it is not planned for betimes. In every crop that you plant now, consider the cattle and tlieir needs for the winter. Suc cessful farming always demands a long look ahead. I Turkeys are good farm property If the stock Is vigorous and the birds I heavy. Some of us breed them so long i without changing the male that they i become delicate and difficult, to rear as as well as of light weight.

Only the young of the giraffe could be rendered sufficiently tractable to be brought within reach of shipboard. I do not think it possible that a mature specimen could ever be made sufficient ly amenable to discipline. These timid animals have in the wild state an abid ing terror of mankind, and even if, as sometimes happens, a giraffe were run to a standstill and driven up to the wagon, no amount of kind treatment could overcome Ins instinctive fears They are, of course, too huge and to^ awkward to be easily handled in th" wild state, even if lamed, or hobbled or fastened up and, moreover, they have a dangerous wray of striking out with the fore legs, a defensive habit which In itself would rentier them formidable. With the young, on the contrary, nj great trouble seems to have been ex perienced in the few instances in which they have been caught and brought to Europe. But if giraffes are to be thus captured In accessible Africa, no time will have to be lost. Year by year, even in Khama's wild domains, they grow fewer and more difficult to got at: and after Khama's death the giraffe, which he may now almost be said to preserve, will soon be exterminated south of the Zambesi.—English Exchange.

Is the government of the United States prepared to admit that a political con spiracy which may threaten the Tsar's life is, in fact, an attempt upon his life so direct as to deprive the conspirator of che right of asylum in the United States under the pending treaty? It we are to accept the Russian law as our guide we must be prepared to sur render all Russian refugees who have conspired against the Tsar's govern ment and who have undertaken to overthrow it by violent means.
