la Sail to flays Originated The custom of powdering the hair dates back as far as the sixteenth century and was first Introduced by the nuns In French convents Those who had occasion to leavo the cloisters powderdtheir hair so as to make it appear gray and give them a venerable look The fashionable dames were so struck wIth the novel effect of white powder on dark hair that they soon appropriated tho device as one of the arts of the worldly toilet Out of this grew the use of tints In the hair The Roman women often used blue powder and later In I860 Empress Eugenie set powdereRome under the empire and Greece during the time of Pericles were aelzedI with a mania for golden hair The belles and fops of the day devised sevI eral methods whereby black locks might bo changed to golden yellow butI bleaching did not always succeed Con sequently quite a trade was established with the fair haired tribes beyond j the Alps who sold their locks to LatinI merchants to be worn an the heads of Roman dandles i Many a dame dampened her raven tresses In the strongest of muriatic acid and sat In the sun to blench her hair to the coveted yellow Others used lye and afterward anolntod their heads with oil made from goat fat ashes of the beech tree and certain yellow flowers The Itinerant barber who passed down and out when people ceased to use powder In their hair was quite a personage In his day Ho went from house to house armed with a soap bowl to fit the chin powder boxes po- matum and puffs was always a news- monger and also a gratuitous scandal bearerWhen wigs were In vogue the Ro man dames had In their wardrobes as many wigs ns costumes and when the choice of n wig was made It was nec essary to arrange the eyebrows lashes and complexion In harmony It was then that the slaves were specially charged with the makeup of the face a delicate operation called by CIcero Medicaments candorls et ruborls There were some cunning devices In vogue among the belles of the old n world for giving expression to the eye The most reckless of them were wont to place n single drop of that deadly poison prussic acid In the bottom of a wine glass and hold It against tho eyes for two or three seconds or more rashly still they would take a small I quantitya piece not larger than a grain of rice of an ointment contain a ing that mortal drug atropla and rub It on the brow Each of these was sup posed to give clearness and brilliancy expand the pupil and Impart a fasci hating fullness and mellowness to the eye Certain slightly pungent and vol atile perfumes such as oil of thyme were occasionally worn on the hand kerchief causing the eyes to glitter and sparkle The eye was made to ap pear large full and almond shaped by the use of a tine pencil dipped In anti monial sulphur or Egyptian black rubbed upon the lids along the angle nitH of Wedding Tradition Knives formerly formed part of the accouterments of n bride This Is easily l accounted for by the fact that an ciently It formed pert of the dress for women to wenr a knife sheathed and suspended from their girdles A bride snys to her jealous husband In Dek kers Match Me In London 1631 See At my girdle hang my wedding knives With those dispatch me The use of bridesmaids nt weddings Is of remote antiquity Among the Anglo Snxous the bride was led to tho n church by n matron who was called the brides woman and followed by a company of young girls who were called bridesmaids It was at one timeb the custom for the bridesmaids to lead the bridegroom to church and for the bridegrooms men to conduct the bride This Is clearly alluded to IIK the Colliers Wedding Two lusty lads well drest and strong fetepd out to lead tho bride along And two young maids of equal size As soon the bridegrooms hands surprise The

sleeping over his rights who does not endeavor to avail himself of the benefit to be derived by a saving of labor In substituting the weeder and harrow for the hoe We have already called our readers atten tion to the fact that Colonel W L Peek and W II Morton two of our most intelligent and progressive farmers of Georgia both have succeeded In growing fine corn and cotton with little If any use of the hoe Colonel Peek only chopped out his cotton while Mr Morton did no hoeing Our special motive for calling your attention to this matter at this early time Is to Impress upon you the fact that If you wish to reap tho full benefit from this new method you must give tho proper preparation to your land before plant ing Plant on the Level You can succeed best by planting oil a level If you must bed have low fiat beds or after bedding your laud run a harrow over them once or twice before planting and knock them oIl so ns to have them smooth and even ns possible The next most Important point Is to begin with weeder or harrow early before the grass comes up and gets a start The easiest time to kill grass Is just In the sprout It the crust of earth that It Is coming through Is broken or disturbed the grass dies Here Indeed n stitch In time saves nine The Method Do not condemn this method be cause you are not familiar with It The method Is nil right and will ac complish nil Unit Is claimed for It If you execute It properly First you want your land well broken and pre pared secondly do not plant except on fresh smooth surface thirdly get you n weeder and some broad light running smoothing harrow and fourthly start In time and keep going over your crop so fast that the grass cannot grow Run across your corn and cot ton until you get them about as thin as you wish them and then

Often Graciously Presides at War Councils of the Nations Chiefs Democratic In tanner and a Famous Housekeeper The distinction of being tho best posted woman In America on politics and statecraft Is generally accorded to Miss Helen Cannon daughter of tho Speaker of the U S House of Re presentatives Speaker Cannon who Is genial and democratic In manners a man of many close friendships but no one Is so close to him as his only unmarried daughter who has presided over his household since the death of his wife many years ago Miss Cannon emphatically disproves the theory that a woman cannot keep a secret As the confidante of the official who next to the President Is the most powerful man In the United States she probably learns more of i what Is going on behind tho scenes CANNON 01IOF OF OF i in official life than any other member x of her sex yet never so much as once has she let her tongue slip when mum was the word and this is more g than can be said of somo men of exalt ed position X Moreover Speaker Cannons confi dence in his daughters discretion and I common sense is shared by the leaders In the lower house of Congress who have occasion to confer frequently with the presiding officer Many of these confidential confabs are held at the unpretentious vine covered brick house which constitutes Speaker Can 1fonons Washington hone and many times a newcomer at a has been surprised to see the wheel wIhorses of our national legislature freely i telling state secrets before the hostess r 6 V f Joys of Good Cooking UiI r Incidentally it may be noted that s Miss Cannon is largely responsible for so many of these political star cham ber sessions being held at the Cannon gleresidenceI Instead of in tho Speakers Cu private office at the Capitol or some- whereur else Few readers of this need rea be told that the average man sets vort store by good cooking and the ttr won by Senator Hannas dal famous hash breakfasts goes to Ira prove that the President and other tin high officials of the nation are no ex Et ception to the masculine rule re Well Just here one has a hint as to the magnet which helps to draw many teDmen of affairs to the Speakers homo instead of to his office Miss Cannoh Is a splendid housekeeper and is an ex 1port in preparing or r the preparation of those plain whol somo dishes which nover Jail to mako r a with men who are weary of hotel cooking In things to eat as in dress Speaker Cannon does not go in fo much In the way of I frills but no man who knows what is In store 4for him ever declines an invitation to dine a- tlor d When Congress Is not In session Miss Cannon Is mistress of her fathers home at Danville Illinois There as In Washington she Is always prepared for company for the Speakers married daughter with her children spends much time at the Cannon home and relatives and friends always feel free to drop In at almost any time Official Feminine Calls In the social life of the national cap ital Miss Cannon occupies by virtue of her fathers position a unique posi tion Possibly not all our readers are aware of the many unwritten laws that govern the exchange of calls between women whose husbands or fathers oc cupy prominent positions at Washing ton For instance official etiquette prescribes that the wife of a newly elected Senator or Representative must make the first call upon the wives of all those Congressmen who are her husbands seniors In service Miss Cannon however In accordance with these same unwritten laws is not compelled to make a first call upon any ladles In Washington save tho wife of the President and the wife of the Vice President All this fuss as to who shall call first may appear ridicu lous to persons who are not brought In contact with life at our seat of gov ernment and possibly Miss Cannon who is thoroughly democratic may re 11 IIs i MISS HELEN vr I DAUGHTER THE SPEAKER THE HOUSE such conference great popularity superintending hit gard it in that light too but the fact remains that the enforcement of such recognition is due the dignity of her fathers position and she is too good a politician not to insist upon the Speaker of the House enjoying all tho prestige which Is due him Should Mr Cannon one day be President of the United States as is by no means im possible his daughter will by reason of her kindliness and democracy make an Ideal First Lady

Most Valuable Prize Ever Taken by a Ship In order that tho city of Philadelphia might be rescued from an Ice faro ine a powerful oceangoing tug has ac complished the almost Impossible feat of capturing a huge iceberg and tow Ing It Into port Never In the worlds history has this wonderful achieve ment been duplicated and contrasted with It the fascinating exploits re counted by the marine historian SinI bad the sailor appear commonplace and trivial With its mountain of Ice in tow the tug passed up the Delaware River creating consternation among the float Ing world on the stream as observers could not imagine other than that the floating mountain was being driven up the bay by some freak of wind and cur rent to the great danger ofshlpplng Its approach was responsible for some frenzied telegraphing which threw the shipping interests into a panic Orders were Issued to hold up the sailing of every vessel due to leave and mes sages were dispatched to lower Dela ware station to intercept several out bound steamers and warn them to seek anchorage out of the bergs path Maritime Interests Excited For several hours maritime Inter ests were intensely excited by the un heardof presence of an Iceberg in the bay Later when the true story of the wonderful feat was flashed over the wire it seemed so utterly incredible that the excitement if anything was Increased It was not until one of the fastest tugs In the harbor had steamed down the bay and wired verification of the story that the panic was allayed Only the providential cooporatlon of the winds and tides and the most fa vorable weather conditions enabled the tug to accomplish the font In spite of the almost inconceivable risks at tendant upon the bergs capture not a member of the tugs crew was injured Two Men FrostBitten Two men suffered from bad frost bites but this was due to their own carelessness In braving the arctic temperature in the bergs vicinity without proper clothing Their experience was a warning to the rest of tho crow nnd when ttfe tug with the prize passed the Breakwater every man aboard was muffled as if for a Poary relief expedi tionThe length of the iceberg was 500 feet and It Is estimated that It will yield fully 500000 tons which Is nearly sufficIent to make up tho shortage In Ice crop due to the mild winter The work of cutting up the mountain of ice will have to be pushed because of the rapidity with which It will molt under the spring sunshine The monster berg was captured off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland It was made fast at groat risk by the daring men on the tug who in small boats tied staunch ropes around the mountain of ice and then let out a long towline from the tug and with grappling hooks secured a fastening which held firm after several attempts had resulted In failure The crew of the tug will share in tine money the prize will yield1 As Icebergs are broken oft portions of glaciers the Ice yielded will be of good quality School Garden RclucatlollI Every child likes to play In the mud and dirt to make sand houses and caves mud pies and even to plant a garden breaking off the twigs of trees and pulling weeds which are carefully dlvlrlslonan easy matter to direct tho youthful mind a little further along this lint and interest ItIn a real miniature gar den It Is not an untried theory bu a fact abundantly proven In all tIlt large and many of our small clues Philadelphia has what are called Municipal Gardens Boston has aI dozen School Gardens Chicago Detroit Washington Cleveland Los Angeles In fact almost all cities have successfully worked out either the school garden or tho vacant lot culti vation idea two separate propositions It is true but closely allied The school garden Idea opens up an easy and agreeablo avenue to what proves more of a diversion than a task to the young New York has only one such farm garden but on Its one or two acres the children plant and raise both flowers and vegetables while In an extemporized cookhouso they prepare the vegetables for the table and enjoy the flavor of the fruits of their labor Besides this Instruction in the culinary art a bedroom In miniature furnishes an opportunity for the girls to learn how to care for rooms In Philadelphia the relation of the municipal gardens and the schools Is Intimate But to see this Idea worked out per haps at its best one must study It as It Is in Boston There a private organization known as tho School Garden Association for six years or more has been developing Httlo centers where the children delight to plant and cult vate furnishing object lessons of the utility of such work which It Is hoped may lead to Its addition to the school curriculum and with this idea in mind these school gardens are located quite generally an land adjacent to schoolhouses some of the regular school teachers gladly acting the part of instructors The effect upon the little workers In these plotslslin every way happy and should

which have the odor of tho ground about them and which seem to bo choice tidbits not only roi trout and landlocked salmon but also for pickerel porch black bass and in deed every species of food fish that swims in fresh water As the Maine soil Is deficient in humus and lacking in decaying vegetable matter angle worms are not plentiful More than ten years ago Carl Beers a florist of Bangor went into the busi ness of rearing earthworms for the purpose of selling them to the local fishermen as well as for shipment to Boston Ho imported a breed of dark purple worms from Belgium which were prolific breeders though course and strong flavored and later ho secured a box of giant angleworms from India In the course of a few years he was able to supply live worms by the million to his custom ersThose shipped to Boston were sold In Job lots of 75 cents a pound To tho home customers he sold worms of average size for 10 cents a dozen Though his green house was a small one and though his trade In flowers was never extensive he made money rapidly from the sale of worms un til last year when he retired and went to his old home in Sweden a wealthy man Sidney Cook of Presque Isle the Inventor of several diving appliances used by mon who work in deep wat ers was the next man to attract at tention as a public benefactor in the bait line Mr Cook says his Inven tion was made possible through having watched the Indians of Canada when they sought worms for bait All earthworms come to the surface at night said he and feed on the grasses and rotting leaves neat the entrance to their burrows While the worms wore busy eating the In dians of Canada had a habit of drag ging a blanket with its under side smeared with bird lime along the surface of the land thus picking up the fat worms together with sticks and lumps of earth and small pebbles After dredging the land for a time the Indians carried the blanket to the camp picked off time worms and added another coating of bird lime Though I have been praised very much for my Invention It Is not mine by rights as I gained the Idea from Indians The only change I have made is to go out with a light giving forth a violet color and allowing it to shine for a few minutes upon the land to be visited with tho smeared blanket Most lights frighten earthworms and drive them underground which Is the reason why they feed in the dark but a light that carries a blue or a violet blue shade seems to soothe the crea tures and makes them careless of dangerOr perhaps the worms are hypno tized by tho strange glare and cannot get away That is the way a dash lamp acts upon deer at night and I think a deer should know as much as an angleworm IN ROCKEFELLERS CLASS Chief Quanah Parker of the Co manches has all the great mans hor ror of tho camera While waiting for a train at Stanton Okla a young man began making photographs of him The Indian grew angry opened his pocket knife and threw It at the camera man As this did not de ter the

curbing the greed of promoters and speculatorI The report says In part As n step In that direction we recommend tnut legislation be enacted wbich shall coo tain the following provisions viz The Secretary of War to be authorized to grant permits for the diversion of 28600 cubic feet of water per second anti no more from the waters naturally tributary to Niagara Falls All other diversions of

the land 11 If In the meantime the Camuliau government shall have enacted legislation prohibiting the diversion of water which is naturally tributary to Niagara Falls In excess of 5WOOO cubic feet per secondDependent on Canada It will be noted that unless the British government tinges with this country In Its effort to save the natural j beauty of Niagara Falls little can bo accomplished and from past expert ence It seems more than doubtful that such will be the case In the matter of the irternatlonal boundary and the seal controversy Canada certainly did not show an over friendly spirit and there Is no reason to assume that her attitude hints charged in the least but It would seem probable that she will use nIl her great Influence with the mother country to defeat any friendly agreement that might be proposed This conclusion of Canadas probable attitude Is not reached entirely on ac count of any unfriendly feeling but because of two very Important facts one of these Is the greater width anti depth of the channel on the Canadian side which would Insure a splendid flow over the Horseshoe Falls aftert- ime American side Is entirelyI dry It Is asserted that Ontario Province now receives from the Commissioners of Queen Victoria Niagara Park u minimum annual rental of 60000 for the water rights granted there and when the plants for which these grants were made are In full operation the annual rentals to the government will amount to over 300000 additionaldwater granted by which would produce an annual rental of another 300000 and still not seri ously affect the

Sacketts Harbor N Y on Lake Ontario not far from the St Lawrence and will receive a salary of 3G5 a year Albert H Mctcalfe keeper of the yard since 1SG8 died recently and his position was given to his

reformed burglar in a reminiscent mood It was one of the old fashioned kind which had not been modernized and a 4yearold could have opened tho windows The female party that owned the house had the reputation of beln mighty rich and sunthin of a miser so 1 thought there might be good plcklns for me in tho way of old silver and the like She had married a young man about a year before my visit who was known to be sunthin of a high roller The first room I struck that seem ed promlsln was the dinin room filled up with massive mahogany fur niture like they dont build nowa days I had no trouble in openln the sideboard where I found a few real silver spoons and a blamed lot o plat ed trash that wasnt worth carryin away I was just about to leave the room when out Hashed an electric light and I found myself starin at the barrel of a pistol A young tel ler in pajamas held the gun and his hand didnt shake a bit Ho had a business look In his eye so when he told me to throw up my hands I done so without no argument How much of a haul have you made ho asked pleasantly I told him only a few spoons and that it was a lowdown trick to pinch a man who hadnt got enough to pay for his troubleHe acknowledged there was a boss on me and then asked me If I was a amatoor or could I blow up a sate without rousin the neighbor hood If you have tho materials with you to crack a safe says he why you an mell divide the spoils- I acknowledged that I had come prepared to open anything in the hardware line and then with his gun plnted he backed mo out of the room to one adjolnin where thero was a safe in the wall Then he told me to go to work and sat down In a chair with his pistol turned my way Well sir to make tho story short I opened that safe with this pelican suporlntcndin the Job There was wads o long green in a tin box that would choke a cow likewise diamonds and other shiners The boss o the business sorts em over careful and when tho box was clean empty he hanlfBme over some old breastpins and napkin rings and a babys silver mug and told me that that was my share while he pockets the rest as calm as ye please Now then about taco ana dont kick for this gun Is likely to go off says he and heads me back to the window through which Id entered alt through there and be quick about it son ho says and then as if to add insult to InJry gives me a push that sent me flyin inter the back yard ready to choke with rage The reformed burglar here uttered some very unreformed profanity as tho picture of that night rose to mom oryWhen Id got on me feet I heard a pistol go oft in the house an a yell for help and knowed who done it There was nothing for me to do but light out It seems that young man was the old partys husband Shed kept him short of funds and he took this chance to make good Now did yo ever hear a meaner Job played on a hard working man than he played on me VERY SAD BREATH Senator Clay of Georgia told theI following story to a number of hisI colleagues in the

transmitted to tho editor at the city of Washington a discount of 10 per cent will bo allowed Distant subscribers will have their papers carefully packed and punctually forwarded to order It is to be presumed that a copy of this pamphlet was sent to each postmaster in the United States Under tho system that then existed this method was entirely proper and it is claimed that postmasters derived considerable income from such sour ces The prospectus further states that Ita competent reporter will be employed to furnish the proceedings of Congress for the Gazette and that all inter esting articles of Intelligence will be carefully selected and published The Editortobe in writing of himself says As the humble guardian of the public weal he will occasionally use tho privilege he has a right to exercise In expressing his temperate disapprobation of such measures of the coun try If those opinions should some times be erroneous he wishes them to be ascribed to the common fallblllty of human Judgment which cannot be always in the right As far as it may be possible he will labor to be im partial but that there will be a bias and that that bias will be In favor of the present dominant party ho has to 1 much candor to deny and too murV honesty to conceal What be can t1 within his humble sphere shall be donn for the good of the country and if ho falls he will console himself with the

Iopnlar Melodrama The Lyon Mall The tragedy of the execution of Jc sepb Lcsurqucs an innocent man by the legal machinery of France in the eighteenth century Is an incident replete with pathetic phases Although Lesurqucs was executed afar back as 1700 though his Innocenc was established in 1801 though hIsI property was restored to the family In 1824 the corps Icglslatlf after the fam- Ily had tried for over half a century to have his memory judicially rehabllltat ed definitely refused in 18G9 to per form this last remaining act of Justice The pedantry of French law forbad the questioning of a jurys verdict by anyone save the person directly in terested But though the law has tall ed to remove the stigma on the name of an innocent man literature and the drama have made him a popular hero The Lyons Mall In which hIs honor Is tnoroughly vindicated has been one of the most popular of all French melodramas and the combined genius of Charles Reade and of lien ry Irving made it one of the great successes of the modern English stage Poor Lesurques who when he per ished on the scaffold was but thirty three years of age was a good luis band a good father and u good citizen He married in 1790 Mlle Campion a lady of respectable family in Doual and possessed of a handsome dowry Their children therefore were very young and it was in order to give them the benefit of a superior educa tion that he relinquished a public ap pointment at Doual and came to Paris there to live on his own private for tune which amounted to about 7500 francs a year He had but just arriv ed in the capital and was superintend ing the furnishing of his new home when the thunderbolt fell On April 27 1700 the mall coach be tween Lyons and Paris was attacked stud plundered and the postilion and courier were murdered There were no witnesses to the crime but It was re ported that a party of horsemen had been seen tu the vicinity at about the time It was committed These horse men had taken dinner at an inn at Montgeron One of Lesurques friends named Guenot was arrested on sus picion and his private papers were seized There was no evidence to hold him on except that he answered the description of one of the supposed murderers and he was dismissed Next day he was told to call for his papers at the central bureau He was accompanied thither by Lesurques an act of madness on the part of the latter hud he been guilty- It happened that just at that time the Judge was taking the depositions of hbor1hool1I Among these were two of Montgeron who mahlseranttiI I ous screams at the two friends They were put Into the witness box and swore positively that two of the horsemen were present in the audience When confronted with Lesurques and Guenot they positively Identified them Both were arrested and thrown into prison At the trial four other witnesses corroborated their testimony with equal emphasis as regarded Lesurques but were doubtful about Guenot The latter succeeded In Establishing a satisfactory alibi and was released The formers attempted fillbl seemed to break down badly when the daybook of the Jeweler La rand to whom he swore he had sold a bill of goods on the very day of the murder was produced in court and the late of the charge was found to have been altered In valu the Jeweler protested that the first date was a mistake which he lad immediately corrected and he and all the other witnesses for Lesurques were looked upon as self convicted perjurers Lesurques was found guilty and executed together with one of the real murderers named Courrlol who on mounting the scaffold confessed his own guilt but declared the innocence 3f Lesurques Doubts began to arise as to the justice of Lesurques sentence and finally it was discovered that he had suffered through extraordl nary resemblance to one Dubose the real criminal who was brought to Jus ace in 1801 convicted and executed This deplorable case had most deplorable sequels The unhappy Mme Lesurques went mad on hearing the Sows of her husbands condemnation The children were as yet too young toI understand their trouble but as they grew up one thought alone possessed them that of vindicating their dead father It Is easy Jo understand how brooding over this purpose drove one laughter to the mndliouseln which her Bother had been confined- It is curious that one of the witness es against Lcsurques the woman Al roy also went Insane from grief Bpd remorse at her error Still another victim was another daughter of Le surques who worn outby the fruitless struggle with the pedantry of the French laws drowned herself in the servjIcetad found death there As regards Le mrques fortune which had been con Iscated his unhappy family were more successful In 1824 Just twentyeight rears after their fathers death they obtained a grant of 214000 francs supplemented In 1835 by another grant of 252000 francs London Public Opln loB rt r t THE WEIGHT OF GOLDs HOW MUCH OF THE PRECIOUS METAL CAN A MAN CARRY Strange Fallacies of Many of the Fa room Writerodd Errors About the Handling of Coin That Are Ferpc tasted In Work of Fiction One of the peculiarities of clvlllzatlo la that by the use of new methods we lose sight of well known facts that were once as familiar in mens mind as household words Money is now represented universally by bank note and checks but the majority of llvin Californians remember the days before the resumption of specie payment when legal tender was not current money on the Pacific slope and nothing went save gold eagles doubt eagles and half eagles When the Dank of California opened its doors of a morning there was always the sight ot the officials bringing trays of gold coIn from the safe to tables in the rear of the counter Each tray held 10000 and the weight of the gold was thirty one pounds four ounces Sometime an olllclal would carry two trays am there were strong clerks who couli carry three trays but on their heads not in their nrms Californians there fore are exceptions to the curious fac that the world at large has begun to confound gold and money and this confusion of ideas comes out curiously in modern fiction Writers either make men unable to carry large sums of gold or they make them carry enor mous amounts as if gold weighed no more than greenbacks- A conspicuous error of this kind will be found in Marlon Crawfords story The Heart of Home where two workmen propose to blackmail a Ro man princess They demand 10000 lire about 20000 which she Is to bring in her carriage and deliver to two men who will be walking steadily along the Anplan way and who wit wear certain sign giving things supplementary to the usual best clothes ol Roman artisans Crawford makes the curious rejection that these men did not know the weight of gold coin and did not realize the impossibility of their carrying off their respective shares in their pockets Yet each man would have had to carry thirty one pounds four ounces and this could have been done with case Now this Is only a reflection and does not in the least mar the story which Is unusually Interesting even for Marion Crawford But far other Is the case with Balzacs Le Cure du Village where the whole plot hinges upon the supposed weight of 100000 francs in gold This would be only sixtytwo pounds eight ounces yet Bal zac Imagined that a strong youhg man required assistance to carry It in four trips to the river about a mile ills tance where he hid It close to a small wooded Island In the center of the streamIt quite possible that the hardy miners who go to the Klondike do not read either Balzac or Marion Craw ford but If they did they would be as tonished at the curious Ignorance displayed We may take It for granted that the weight of gold nnd provisions carried by the most successful miners ranges from 70 to 100 pounds avoirdu poss We know from Gibbons de scription of the Roman soldier that each man carried In addition to his defensive armor and his sword and plluiu or pike sixty pounds weight of various things needed for the fortification of the temporary camp at the end of the days march This was six teen miles but when the Thcban le gion composed entirely of Christians were sent from Egypt to reenforce the army of Maxlmlan the colleague of Dlacletlan in his campaign against the revolted peasants of France they made a double march of thirtytwo miles to avoid burning Incense before the figure of Victory located in front of the emperors tent Next day they were all massacred Their exploit however which is historical shows clearly that sixty pounds is not an In cumbrance to an active man and can be carried for a long time The blunder of Balzac is the more inexcusable because his story was written as a sort of challenge to the fantastics headed by Charles Nodler and the romantics under theJeadershlp of Victor Hugo and Thcophile Gau thler Let us now examine the other side of fun Question the writers who have made men carry insupportable loads of gold In the first rank df these is Prescott in his History of the Conquest of Mexico in his splendid description of the noche triste when the Spaniards besieged In the palace of Axayacatl endeavored to escape Their quarters were upon the broad boulevard that ran from the northeast to the southwest dividing the city of Tenochtltlan from the other quarters of Mexico viz the city of the priests the City of Mexico Tenuchea the city and bazaar of Tlatllolco and the two quarters inhabited by the serfs Close to the palace of Axayacatl was the great canal which cut tho boulevard exactly at that point This was bridg ed ordinarily by huge beams that were squared so as to fit evenly which they must have done for the Spanish cavalry antrctrtlllery crossed other bridges of the dame description The Mexicans had removed the beams and Cortes ordered his carpenters to make a porta ble bridge Before the Spaniards started the royal treasurer displayed the gold and emeralds of the emperors fifth and bade the soldiers take what they would Old Bernal Diaz relates that he took a beautiful emerald which annoyed the treasurer very much ItNo no he cried take gold I Wan manage to taTe the emerald Go to thundy maid stout old Cop tain Diat J1I te marched off and saved hIs lire and afterward sold me emerald for a big sum when the conquest was achieved But as he relate and as Prescott writes there was a man who actually took 8000 ounces weighing 187 pounds 8 ounces and carried it through the terrible hurl burly of the sorrowful night and then the next day said to Cortes Genera what shall I do with this gold I cannot perry It any farther Fling it to the devil said Cortes If you Ilk you may get more gold but if you love your life you will not get another one So he threw it down and marched with the rest from Tlucopan now Tacuba all around the lake to the frIendly Tlascalaus It Is certain that the man could not have carried more than a thousand ounces weighing 02 pounds 8 ounces through the stress and storm of tha nights fighting The old captain wrote his hook long afterward but his mint was clear and his memory excellent and thefault must have been with the proofreaders who have always made mistakes But that does not in the least exonerate Prescott who ought to have kuown that the thing was Incrcd Iible1 The most extraordinary error ot this kind ever made Is to be found In the Stlngaree stories of Pearsons Mag azlne There the statement Is made gravely that a man carried 3000 in gold a little trifle of nearly 150 000 weighing 4G8 pounds 12 ounces and that for a long distance luclud ing a railroad trip It is obvious that with this writer the confusion ol Ideas between gold and bank notes was complete One of the conse quences of the ever increasing volume of fiction magazines is that the quality is deteriorating rapidly especially Ir English periodicals What is more certain subjects supposed to be inter eating are attempted by men whc know nothing of the wild life of arid regions and their imagination cannot take them out of the environment of their dally life in congested cities Edward Garczynskl in Washington Post THE TOUCAN Qneer South American Bird With an Extremely Lnrge 111II A queer kind is the toucan It seems to have been made expressly to take charge of its huge banana shaped beak which in some species is fully seven inches in length and more than two Inches in widthentirely out of proportion to its comparatively small body This beak is the most brilliant possession of the toucan being orange I and black scarlet and yellow or green and red according to the species of the birdIts home Is in the wild South American woods where mingled with the screaming of parrots macaws and oth er tropical birds is heard its monotonous cry Tucano tucano from which its name is probably derived It is a fruit eater and climbing among the branches it gathers its food with Its long beak whose strength no stern can resist The toucan nests in trees and it Is uncertain whether It excavates Its burrow or builds in a natural cavity Nothing more comical can belmaglned than the head of this creature with its sparkling eyes and enormous gayly colored beak appearing from a hollow In the trunk of some forest monarch It is said that the young birds are subject to the attacks of monkeys and birds of prey and that when the parent bird is alarmed all she has to do Is to poke her held out of the aperture leading to the nest The assailant seeing so huge a bill fancies an animal of corresponding size behind it and leaves without bowing or saying fare wellToucans are sociable birds and go in large flocks They make common cause against their enemies such as owls and falcons which they surround and mob as the rooks do in England Haw ing thus no need for protection they ire noisy and clamorous like parrots and monkeys The plumage Is generally black but the throat is white tinged with yellow ind commonly edged beneath with red The tail is nearly square or moderately rounded with the upper feathers red und the lower scarlet Alternations of the brighter colors are displayed In the feathers of the throat the breast and the tail The bird is kept easily in confine ment Some of its brilliant tints are very fleeting and they often leave lit tie or no trace after death so that lit tie Idea of its beauty can be obtained from n stuffed specimen Origin of HobnonH Choice The familiar proverb originated with Thomas Hobson a famous carrier of Cambridge who was born about 1544 and lived to his eightyfifth year He raveled regularly for a long period between his home in the university town and the Bull Blshopsgate carrying passengers as well as packages It Is said that ho was the flrst person in England who let horses for hire and it was out of the regularity of his mode of dealing with the animals that the proverbial remark arose Every horse vas sent out in its turn and if from my cause a customer objected or wish ed a change made old Hobson would curtly decide This or none hence the saying Hobsons choice this or tone By steady attention to business the Cambridge carrier became rich and among other gifts ho is known to have nade was the

The Season r Now On Careful nan dung of Root By P II ROLFS The time for setting out orange trees from the nursery will depend on the location and the conditions In the West Indies and south Florida trees may be set out at any time of the year when the land Is ready and there Is sufficient moisture to favor their growth In central Florida the spring February and March Is preferable The same Is true of north Florida Louisiana and Mississippi In the ex treme northern portions of the citrus growing section It Is usually better to wait until the danger of freezing weather Is past This will bring the date up to about the latter part of February In setting out trees from the nursery care should be taken to Injure the roots as little as possible Where trees cnn be taken up with a considerable ball of earth and transplated hi this way they may bo set out without any apparent check in growth Tills however Is not usually practicable In sandy soils At the Time of Setting Out When the trees are taken up tht roots should be carefully protected by means of wet cloths or moist moss and the trees set In holes already prepared for them If the ground Is not already very moist the addition of one or two palls of water will usually puddle the roots and cause the trees to grow promptly At the time of setting out the tops should be cut back to correspond closelyI to the condition of the roots The favorite size of tree to set out Is one that has grown about four feet tall In the nursery and has several branches Such trees are usually about an Inch or an Inch and a half In diame

boxes of moist sand arranging them so that the ker nels from ear No 1 are In row No 1 etc The cut shows n portion of such CORN TEST a box five days utter the kernels had been placed In Itten kernels from each car to a row It the boxes used are two or two and n half Inches deep and damp cloth Is spread over the top after the kernels arc placed In the sand no further atten tion will be necessary for five or six days when the results of the test can be recorded The box should be kept In a warm place where the tempera ture docs not fall lower than 50 de gress F Fertilizer Bedded on Early Taking together the cotton experiments of three years It is believed at the Georgia experiment station that first It Is quite safe to conclude that a fertilizer of which the nitrogenous Ingredient consists of cottonseed meal Is more effective In Increasing the to tal yield when applied In advance of planting and bedded on second that such a fertilizer when bedded on four teen to sixteen days in advance of planting will induce earlier fruiting and larger early yield of cotton Save Feed and Lose Live Weight See the calves shrink up at this sea son for the lack of feed In your com munity says Texas

with the root borer allowing them to stand but two years will help to subjugate the pest Inany locality Seed corn should be so well cared for that It will contain no ears that will not germinate and seed testing should be employed as a demonstra tion of the fact that the seed has re ceived proper attention rather than as a screen to separate the worthless from the poorly preserved seed Every farmer should have his seed corn testing patch on which competing elections from his own fields and va rieties secured elsewhere may be sub- Jected to a careful field test under Ills own eye- Potato

time Tho United States this year will have over 90000 000 acres planted to this king of crops For this enormous acreage 15000000 bushels of seed will bo required Probably but little thought Is given by the average fanner to tho germin ating quality of the seed used for ho has so long been accustomed to get ting a stand under ordinarily favor able conditions varying from CO to 85 per conl that many have come to think a more complete stand impos sible Yet experiments have shown that barring unfavorable weather at planting time the work of grubs wire worms and the like there is no rea son why a stand of corn should bo less than 95 per cent Of recent years how ever conditions have much Improved and never before has there been such x a demand for seed corn of high vital s s1ty Some of our best farmers are be 1 ginning to realize that one of the great est factors in profitable corn produc showfa high per centngo germination L It each corn grower would give a lit Y tie time during the early spring to the f testing of the seed the vitality of each individual ear of corn Intended fir planting could be readily determined t The poor oars could then be discarded the millions of bushels of seed Jinnd which fall to grow each spring r bo very profitably converted In to pork and beef Of the 15nnnnno I bushels of seed corn which will be planted this year it is almost certain that from two to throe million bush Is or nearly 20 per cent of the corn first r planted will fall to grow as a result Fa Faofthe lov vitality of the sped Thou i sands of acres wilt have to be replant i ed

oat I ear separately preparatory to planting the chunces are that the average yield1 of corn per acro In tho United will not bo materially increased- In our principal corn grotvlug States corn IB planted In hills 3i feet apart each way giving 355C hills per acre In most sections throe stalks to the hill Is considered a perfect stand in Rome States two Is tho standard Yet If oach hill would produce but one medium sized oar C or 7 Inches In length and weighing a trifle moro than 9 ounces the yield for each acro would be 288 bushels the average yield per acre In the United States In 19ns A tingle ear of corn to the hill tho slzo shown as A in the illustration would glue an average of 288 bushels s to tho acre a single ear shown as B would give 30 bushels per Hero an ear such as C would produce 40 bushels per Here an oar such as D would yield 45 bushels per acre while rn ear like E which weighs a jJ trifle less than a pound would yield 50 bushels of shelled corn per acre count Ing only ono such ear for each of the 3556 hills There are however very few farmers who raise as much as 50 bushels of shelled corn per acre Yet every corn grower can probably pr duce many ears which aro larger than that shown as E In tho cut Eliminat- Ing however both cars D and E and granting that very farmer could har vest from each hill two such ears as r the one shown zas Can ear whlchMs Je than

tipa kernels preferably six aro takenI from different parts of an ear of corn and all are found to germinate well that Is to produce good healthy sprouts practically nil of the kernels on that ear will likewise show strong vitality On the other hand if tho part of all of1 rIJ == = the kernels tested fall to germinate 01 show only weak sprouts tho proper flan will be the samo for all of tho ker eels on such cars And the experienced corn grower will bo not a little surprised to find many a flue looking car of corn among his selected seed the kernels of which will not sprout at all letter Now Than Not at All Germination tests should be made five or six weeks before planting time abut even if It Is necessary to stop the plow in tho field It is far moro profl table to have a good stand of corn on 19 acres than it is to have a poor stand on 20 acres thereby saving the time and labor necessary to prepare the ground and to plant and cultivate tho additional acre Yet many farmers aro evory year planting and cultivating 31 or 41 acres In ovary 20 for which they receive comparatively no returns In making the teats it IB essential that each ear tested should be given a number and all kernels taken there from given a corresponding number so that after the tests tho faulty ears may b thrown out Many kinds of germinating boxes and methods for testing seed com have been described in various publications but the Deportment of Agriculture has designed a simple box which Is be lieved to combine most of tho advan tages and give good results In the hinds of almost any operator The box would bo about IVj or 2 Inches deep Inside and the 1length and width such rs to suit tho needs of tho Individual farmer but It should not be made wa tertight Instead of filling tho box with sand soil or sawdust as Is commonly recommended the sera bed Is made of heavy canton flannel or similar maL IMINATING BOX terlal using two or three thicknesses of cloth In the bottom of tho box and ono or two thicknesses of cloth for covering the kernels after the frame has been filled fho cloth at tho bot torn should bo marked off Into squarest 2 inches oach way and numbered each one of which Is to bo tilled with ker nets from ears which are given a num ber corresponding to tho square used TesthFor use first wet tho cloth thorough ly by soaking In water and then places the half cloth double

When all of the squares have been filled told the other end of the cloth carefully over the kernels If during tnta sampling tho clotjis have became cover the box with a pieta of glass or other tight material to prevent tho evaporation of tho water from the cloths and set tho box aside for a few days to await the results of the test Where only a limited number of cars aro to be tested a similar germ lasting apparatus may bo mado by using cloth between two dinner plates Ten Inch plates will give ample space for the testing of 18 or 20 ears at ono earsrdefinite order as the corresponding tests in the germinating box Ono oft the most satisfactory methods is tho 1use of a rack as is generally used for drying seed corn This is generally pieta of 2 by 2 inch pieta of pine from which extend on all four sides long nails each of which is numbered After the kernels from the first ear have been placed in square No 1 of the germinating box the ear is shoved on nail No1 of tho drying rack and so on These racks can then bo suspended in some suitable place and there need bo no fear of tho ears be- Ing mixed while the germination test- Is in progress The kernels In tho testing box should begin to germinate freely a bout the third or fourth day but tho counting should not bo done until the sixth or seventh day or until most of the shoots or stems aro from 1 to her Inches long This part of the testing must be done with considerable care and requires good judgment as ker nels will be found in all stages of de velopment If the six kernels In any ono square in the germinating box show six good healthy sprouts the ear CAN NOT YOU GROW TWO EARS which they represent should bo taken for seed There will also bo cases in which all six kernels have germinated but will be lucking in vigor While these kernels might produce a good ear of corn tho chances are that they will never develop or oleo will produce but a barren stalk It is only necessary to remember that all ears showing dead kernels or weak and poorly devel oped sprouts must bo discarded and only those used for seed in which every kernel tested has given a good healthy sprout The ears which havo shown a perfect germination are now ready to be butted and tipped and shelled for planting In order to in sure further uniformity in planting it is advisable to sort the ears before planting Into two or three grades ac cording to the size of tho kernels This grading may also be done by screening it moro convenient Remarkable Results of Government Tests Tho Department of Agriculture recently made tests of seed corn fur nished by farmers In the corn produc ing States and of the 3322 cars tested 1900 or the startling percentage of more than onehalf wore unfit for seed These samples wore taken from cars picked for seed by good careful far more and are evidently much above tho average Tho average germination of tho 1900 poor ears was only 777 lPOOR SMUTTY SEED per pent while the average germina tion of both the good and thq poor ears the seeds of which would ordin arily have been used for planting had not these tests been made was 863 per cent showing that 137 per cent was gained by discarding ears of low r4 m name +r samples tested are representative of the present supply of seed corn the testing of every ear and the subsequent rejection of poor ears will increase the stand 137 per cent This Increased stand would mean an Increased yield of 298140695 bushels with a value of 10073991291 calculated on tho basis II COMMON DINNER PLATE FOR SEED TESTERS of the average yield and prico for tho

when more than two hundred fu11 rigged ships sailed out of New Bedford harbor on three and four year voyages to tho most distant and dangerous seas worn over moro than half a century ago Tho right of Greenland whalo of tho Arctic waters with his mouth full of whalebone and his cousin tho perm whale of tropi cal waters bearing in its head the precious spermaceti were practically exterminated by

when the pennant of tho last oldtlmo whaling ship was hauled down forever there still proudly swam tho oceans tho vast rorqual or racer whale greatest of all his mighty kin To tho sailing fleet of tho old days the rorqual was an almost Impossible prize because of its tremendous speed It was practically unmolested and mul tiplied exceedingly In both North Atlantic and Pacific waters It was the

report on journal Ism among the Chinese He says It is rather surprising in view ot the comparatively small population of foreigners In China how many largo publications there are in foreign languages The prices they obtain for their publications and their work probably explain the situation Shanghai has five dally newspapers three morning and two evening pa pers ono Is French It has six for eign weeklies one German It also has four Chinese dallies and a largo number of Chinese weeklies Practically all of the foreign pa pers sell for 4Vj cents gold per copy Tho subscription price is about 15 gold per annum postage extra Tho Chinese dallies sell for about fi cent gold per copy In addition to these publications there are many religious papers mostly in Chinese published by tho mission authorities In tho south Hong Kong dom nates tho publication business and as It Is n British colony English publi cations might reasonably bo expected to lead but on the face of tho record tho Chinese predominate There aro four English dailies the Post tho Press both morning papers and the Telegraph and the Mall both evening papersThere aro six Chinese dallies and as In the case of Shanghai there are a largo number of publications designed to fill various wants in South China a Portuguese weekly and tho Government Gazette being among them In nearly every port of im portance in China there is an English publication of some sort Tho publication houses as a rule both newspaper concerns and con cerns for general printing only are fairly well equipped for their work Some of them attempt work In the lino of high grade magazine and book publishing and while It Is not always an unmixed success from a technical typographical standpoint it demonstrates that the Chinese workmen who do most of the work under for eign supervision will in tlmo ac quire considerable merit in this line of effort It Is rather Interesting to note that China at present seems to be passing through much the same pro cess with Its newspapers and other publications that many parts of tho United States have passed through All over tho empire native newspap conoIqulalIt is unfortunate in many re spects that tho publication of news papers In the several local dialects has developed so generally While such publications will afford means of educating too people of the em pire In some lines they also furnish tho means for deepening tho gulfs dividing the several provinces which differ In dialects Each newspaper center if it performs Its natural mis sion will developo its own language in Its own field to the
