I I The use of heavy tarpaulin to cover he surface of silage during summer feeding Is being practiced quite successfully by some of the readers of the Kansas Farmer. The tarpaulin Is very carefully spread over the whole surface of the silage, and the silage Is removed from half the surface only at each feeding, alternating from one side of the silo to the other. In this way a thIAer layer can be removed from the surface fed from daily The tarpaulin cover retards the tendency to spoil on the surface left untouched.

There is something inspiring about the self confidence of the men who do big things. A number of years ago the country was horrified by the news that Galveston had been swept by a flood. But the mud was hardly dry in the city's streets before plans were made for building a great sea wall to George W. keep out the waters. Boschke was the engineer to whom this gigantic uudertaking was In RATHER In Fact, GREWSOME. Pledges Under Which They Were Tied in Medieval Times. The matrimonial contract today is a thousand times more polite than it was in the middle ages. It has lost the engaging frankness of its medieval originals. In the good old days when the bride "was taken "for fairer, for fouler, for better, for worse," and promised "to be buxom and bonny" to her husband, her father gave the bridegroom one of the bride's shoes as a token of the transfer of authority. The bride was made to feel the change by a blow on the head duly administered with the shoe. How much more significant and eloquent a use of the article than our "refined" custom of throwing it after the carriage! The husband took oath to treat his wife well, in failure of which she might leave him. As a point of honor, however, he was allowed to "bestow on his wife and apprentices moderate castlgation." An old Welsh law lays it down that three blows with a broomstick "on any part of the person except the head is a fair allowance," while another provides that the stick "be not longer than the husband's arm nor thicker than his middle finger." The bride, however, had her privileges. In certain countries it was her accepted right the morning after the .wedding day to ask for any sum of money or any estate that she pleased, and her husband could not in honor refuse. A man had to be pretty sure of his bride's "intentions" to run such a risk. These old time marriages were often hard driven bargains, which unblush-ingl- y displayed a good deal of unlovely human selfishness. Yet the rough knots that were tied a thousand years ago held faster than many of the and bejeweled bonds we so genteely adjust today. New York "World. Marine Monsters That Are Known as Whale Killers. There really is such a sea monster lis the whale killer. It is one of the largest and most ferocious of all the dolphin family. It also is known as the grampus. It is characterized as a genus by its large size and the conical and depressed head, devoid of a beak. The back fin is of great length, especially in the males, and the flippers are large and broadly ovate. The teeth are comparatively few in number, varying from ten to thirteen on each side of the jaw, and are much larger than in any dolphins yet noticed, being often an inch or more in diameter and having an oval section. The coloration is striking, the upper parts and fins being black, while the lower jaw, chest and under parts are whitish. The white area of the under parts does not however, extend to the flukes, but ends posteriorly In a trident, of which the lateral and shorter prongs extend obliquely upward on the flanks. There Is a large white streak above and behind the eye, and frequently at least a purple crescentic area extends across the back behind the fin. The killer attains a length of at least twenty feet St. Louis Times. ! LOBSTER AND BUTTERFLY. ed When Dead Men Ate.

It Is simply, as Darwin pointed out in the case of all other creatures a great many years ago, that the lobster-an- d its friends, the crab, the prawn and the shrimp, chose one method of life, while the butterfly and its set chose another.

He told his story in a slightly bored and drawling voice, picking his words very carefully and evidently most occupied with neither understating nor overstating the case. It seems he had been out and had killed some sort of a buck. While his men were occupied with this he strolled on alone to see what he could find. He found a rhinoceros that charged viciously and ' into which he emptied his gun. "When I came to," he said, "it was just coming on dusk and the lions were beginning to grunt. My arm was com- -' jpletely crushed, and I was badly bruised and knocked about As near as I could remember, I was fully ten miles ' from camp. A circle of carrion birds stood all about me not more than ten ' feet away, and a great many others were flapping over me and fighting in the air. These last were so close that I could feel the wind from their wings. ' It was rather grewsome." He paused and thought a moment, as though weighing his words. "In fact." he added, with an air of final conviction, "it was quite grewsome."

Charles Darwin instanced the case of the rootlet, which, piercing its way through the soil and detecting a stone or lump of hard clay in its path, will go round it without touchiug it. "How does the rootlet or plant know that the stone is there?" he asks. "Certainly it cannot see it and as It does not touch it cannot feel it. The avoidance therefore seems to be in the nature of perception of some kind which is a mental operation."

Black bacterial rot of cabbage, says a bulletin of the Connecticut agricultural experiment station, occurs on a number of related cruciferous plants, but we have reported it from this before only on cauliflower. While we did not see it on cabbage until last season, it seems quite probable that it has caused more or less harm to this host before, since it has been reported as quite injurious in several other eastern states in times past. This disease is recognized by the blackened veins of the leaves, where the bacteria develop chiefly, and in time extend down into the head. The leaf tissues finally turn yellow, and the leaves are easily pulled off. Soft rot. caused m part by other organ- - ROUND THE WORLD government.

The bacteria gain entrance through drops of water at the water pores on the margins of the leaves. As the germs of this disease can be carried on the seed, it is wise to see that the seed used does not come from a diseased crop. If doubt exists it Is well to treat the seed with formalin, or corrosive sublimate, Likewise, if the disease shows up in a seed bed, this should be changed the next year. If bad in the field this land should not be used for cruciferous crops for several seasons and, even if the disease is not present, yearly rotation is desirable where it can be carried on without especial difficulty.
