MINING^NOTES.
The Poorman Mine, in the Cceur
d'Alene district, has been sold to an
English syndioate for $500,000, of which
$100,000 is to be cash down and tho balance in two equal instalments in six and
twelve months. This is the first investment of English capital in the Cceur
d'Alene region. The principal owners
are Ben Kingsbury, Patsy Clark and
John Noyes of Butte, W. C. Gillette,
Joe Davis and Joe Woolman of Helena.
The sale of the Poorman, coming as
it docs during peculiar financial conditions, bears a significance not bounded
by Ihe confines of a nation. The purchases are Englishmen of wealth, operating through agents in New York. It
gives evidence of two facts: That the
purchasers believe that ailver has reached the bottom notch and that something
will soon be dono to put the vigor of
life iuto the white metal, aud that the
same gentlemen have reason to know
that lead will he protected sufficiently
to bring a price thut will make the
working of the Amerioan mines a possibility.
"I am surprised to learn of a sale in
the silver belt at this time of the year,"
said au old Cceur d'Alener last evening,
when shown the nows of the transaction,
"but I don't know of anything that
oould make me feel more cheerful. It
will be a holiday in the Cceur d'Alenes
when Ihe news gets there,"
"Silver and lead hare Been their,
worst days." That is the cheerful intelligence that will go into a thousand
homes iu this Western mining country.
That the new oompany will work its
purohase immediately no oue doubts.
It will begin by extending the improvements oontemplated by the former own-
ei'B, and will be in first class shape to
meet the improved market foretold by
the salu itself.
J. W. Haskius arrived down from Big
Bend last Saturday. He staked a mile
and a half o'n Smith Creek, not far from
the Sol. Holden mine. Mr. Haskins
and those behind him will work the uow
location by powerful flumes, and great
things are expected, as the Holdeu
olaim, worked in a very primitive manner, has panned out from $10 to $25 a
day right uloug. Tho formation ou
Smith Crook is favorable to large do-
posits of gold being found on the bed
rook for miles. Tlio Holden claim, if
worked ou scientific principles, would

J. W. McCreary, one of the owners ot
the Consolation Gold Mino, on French
Creek, Big Bend, returned hero on Saturday after a month's vacation in the
States. He says he mtt with scores of
mining men who eagerely qnestioned
him regarding tho chances of gold mining in Big Bend, and a great number
expressed their intention of visiting this
promising gold district as soon as the
trail is open. Mining men in the
Western States who have become discouraged at the low price of silver are
now lookirg Up all the gold-bearing
regions with tlio intention ol tun iug
thoir energies t'l the unearthing of
the precious metal and leaving silver
severely alone. Mr. MoCreary I, ft early
on Tncsduv moruing lur French Creek.
Mr. P. J. Nichols, a well known mining mau, who has been connected with
the .Monte Christo and other good mines,
acconn allied Mr. J. W. McCreary to the
Big Bend on Tuesday. Il he i.s satisfied
as to the probabilities of that section as
a profitable gold producer Mr. Nichols
will not only invest largely himself, but
will report to capitalist friends of his
who are at present wailing to put their
money in sound gold mining ventures.
Messrs. Geo, Laforme, E R. Hflrrictc
and Frank Bouton arrived down from
French Creek, Big Bend, on Thursday
night, having had a tedious journey on
account of the softness of the snow,
which is disappearing fast. Mr. Laforme brings down over $1,100 worth of
nuggets from the Consolation Mine, the
results of the past three weeks' working.
They are now taking out 812 a day a
man, the new ground close ahead being
expected to pan out much richer. Tho
two meu working ou the Vandall claim
are averaging $100 a week, with better
ground iu sight. Gus Lund is still
sinking the winze iu hi? miue and will
be on bedrock shortly. On account of
the snow the other claims in the Bend
had not been visited since George went
up three weeks or a mouth ago,
The wagon road to Steamboat Canyon
ought to be a great help to Big Bend.
But unless a steamer is placed on the
river to ply between the head of the
canyon aud La Porte it is difficult to see
where the benefit comes in. The road
will only be seveu miles long; then
thero will bo over thirty miles of water
to the lauding at La Porte. It is within the bounds of possibility that one of
the C. k K. Nav. Co's. boats will be
taken up as soou as the water is high
enough. The Illecillewaet, being near,
ly new, would fill the bill exactly if she
could be got up th��t far, Capt. Troup,
the mauager of the company, will make
a journey np river as soon as practicable
to see if there are any serious obstructions in tho way of taking the Illecillewaet up the rapids.
THE STAR'S FAREWELL.

I am very glad to quit this uncongenial

On which ray bright effulgence shone

'Twas difficult to please more than one or

For each reader had an idea of his own

And scrupled uot to let tho same he

I'vo been criticized aud cuss'd; I'vo been
victimized aud wnss���
I've beeu starved and neglected and
unloved.
Without a dollar or a cent, all my debta
paid but the rent,
In the journalistic  boueyard  I  am
shoved.
This is my last farewell; but I'm not going to h���,
As some of my dear friends have wished
of yore.
So I'll bid you all adieu; I'll just leave
you " in th,- s'.e.vl"
As a Stab I'd never twinkle anv moro.
I am nothing loth lo go, to give the
M.Ml. a show;
liut I wish to link,' this solo aud last
request���
Vouchsafe to  my successor what you
would not give to ni" ���
A living -in this wil 1 and woolly west.

Wir.J;or, Out. Herbert D. Ward, in "Century Magazine."
For an instant the two stood out before
the world upon tho desolate altar, as clci-.i-
cut us figures upon a signet. Thou Amraphel the despot discovered his power.
With a voice that carried its speaker's jealousy and terror and hatred and revenge, as
the wind drives the ram, he oried out:
" Priests of Hurki ! Soldiers of Shinar !
Away with thein to the consuming furnaool
Smite tho house of Terakh ! Consume tho
tribe of Abu.ramu ! Even where they
stand, smite ye them !" With that, forgetting the sacrifice in his arms, ho dropped
the babe, and stretched out his hand to arrest the boh of Terakh.
Iskah swooped down upon the infant,
whioh fell lightly upon the scented fagots.
She seized it to her bosom, and unconsciously scattered the wood and heaping frankincense over tho edge of tho altar. Then sho
cast upon her lover the solemn and signirt-
jantsmile of ono who believed herself to
have disperse! the last remnant of an on-
slaving superstition. It was tho first smile
of a freo soul.
"Stay me not, Amraphel, for my God
leadcth me I" Abu-ramu shook off the
king's hand. Then with bow and quiver
upon his shoulder, with tho hammer in his
hand, hc gathered Iskah in his arms, and
with her the babe, gift of Hurki.and leaped
from the edge of the altar, past the steps of
ascent, over the heads of many of his owu
tribe, to the pavement below, Not for
centuries, until tho final destruction of Ur,
did the legend of that leap cease to make
the blood of strong men start. It was afterward whispered that the strange Ood whom
ho served upheld his feot that they wero
not dashed to certain death.
Then suddenly, at th-.t moment, as if
tortured to the deed, a priest of Nana
plunged his knife into the back of a worshiper of Hurki. It was the madness of
(Sublime suicide whioh sometimes seizes a
i fanatic. A servant of Nebo caught the
fury.and courted the same fate for the sake
of his neglected God. But the near multitude, horrified and cowed by Abu-ramu's
deed, fled like sheep before the murderous
priests. Farther away men caught the
groans, and looked upon one another with
suspicion. Then a swift delirium seized
upon them. The familiar smell of human
blood expanded over the air, and intoxicated tho devotees, who now became wild
beasts. A frenzy, not uncommon iu that
wild age, possessed the people. They fell
into indiscriminate massacre. Soldiers attacked priests, and priests turned upon the
unarmed populace. The fury of an unknown
god cause 1 thc parent to kill his son, and
the son to spring upon tho throat of his
father.
All tho whilo Nana and Nebo, seated
upon their distant thrones of diorite,
itared straight before them���and saw nothing.
Many centuries later all tho Jewish families in Egypt did a strange thing. Super-
naturally guarded amid the wild terrors
that were stalking through the land, they
sprinkled blond upon tho door-posts. By
tins mysterious means their first-horn are
said to have escaped the destroyer. By a
like power, inexplicable, irresistible, the
house of Terakh and tlie followers of Abu-
ramu evaded the madness that smote tho
children oi Ur. What led them unscathed
through the midst, of frightful confusion ?
It was as if they wero protected by au invisible cloud. Only Amraphel glared at
them from his lonely altar, At his incoherent shouts his people set upon one another the more savagely.
" My son, thou hast undone mo I" cried
Terakh, as the tide oi fate swept them in
oue channel.
"My father, my Op.l will protest) thee,
Follow thou him." Su answered Abu-ramu,
shortly and sternly.
"His will be done. I suppose I must."
The old man said this with a wry face,
thinking littic of the danger to his life, but
much of the loss of his art.
Antelai, his wife, struggling behind the
old man, shed no tear?. She obeyed her
husband, but she adore,] her favorite son.
Haran,the father of Iskah, and Nakhor, bis
brother, drawn into the retinue by tribal
gravitation, marched with sullen faces.
They didjnot share Abu-ramu's heresy, and
it takes time lor a superior man to compel
the admiration of his kinsmen.
Like a torrent within a seething whirlpool the men of the desert advanced. They
did not know much about this new Ood of
Abu ramu's. Their views of any assistance
they were likely to receive from him were
most uncertain. Thunderstruck at the
sudden carnage about them, they awaited
the expected assault. In a solid phalanx,
frowning,resolute,unwavarin,-.they livi led
the norm that waged about them,
"Father, we proteot the princess!  ���   ut-
ed  the warriors to their chief.    '  [
citizens are as anN to onr feet,   Thia day
ahall we make thee king I"
For answ, r Abu-ramu p ante I ta il ������'

of the arrow.

in an age when murder was as common as
. (nasi, l"ka i uttered a phraso, memoral ������
because of its originality.and which became
a watchword of the new religion i
"Abu-ramu, thou shalt not kill!" The
priestess spoke. The lover obeyed. Overwhelmed by the revulsion of his escape,
Amraphel, speechless, dropped upon the
fragments of hia god.
Thus the men, a thousand in number, of
the united houses of Terakh and Abu-ramu
swept unharmed past tu murdering populace, the butchering priests,the red-handed
guards, the venerable temple gate���desecrated for the first time, and, leaving their
old religion forever behind, outcasts from
Hurki and Ur, into the silent street and
down it they marched silently until they
reached the mansion of Terakh.
Strange though it be to relate, the servants of Terakh and of his sou killed nono
in lhat onset. The followers of a new Ood
did not usher in tlieir new religion by the
death of even one man. liut the votaries
of Huiki, struggling under a nameless
delirium, slaughtered ono another until exhaustion aud night ended thc unparalleled
carnage.
N,,w in tho midst of this scene, Iskah
felt a touch upon her garment,���a motion
like tho sleight of a sorcerer, and no more,
���and when she looked, behold, tho babe
was gone from her arms.
A wild-eyed man was winding his way
out ol the retinue adroitly like a sacred
snake, and ii any observed him no man
withstood him. A woman's cry of eotasy
from beyond, in the street, reached up to
iBkah ; for her ears and her heart, were fine.
"I hat poor mother hath found her babe,"
she said to Ante'.ai. She did not mention
tho matter to Abu-ramu, He had forgotten
about the child.
In the early starlight a great caravan
wound its unmolested flight from out the
gate of Terakh, past tho unguarded fortifications of Ur, into the gray sands.
"Blessed be the Ono Ood ! He leadeth,
I follow. Dost thou love me !" Thus whispered the chief ; for he was but a lover, aud
the maiden clung to his bosom.
"As thou livost, let mo live : when thou
diest, I will die."  So said Iskah, gently.
The grand vizier and the general of the
right aroused the kiug ftom his stupor.
"Arise, 0 king, and pursue them, and
kill them, for their power is small, and
their booty is great. Even Hurki, the
shining one, commands it,"
"Let them go," answered the king slowly. "I have seen a god greater than Hurki,
He hath protected thom. Pursue not, and
let thom go."
Far into tho night, with the apprehensive
look of flight, tho caravan hurried on until
the dawn. Seated upon one camel, Iskah
and Abu-ramu mutely communed with tho
future. With welded hands, with a touce
that told their bidden thoughts, the prince
and the princess passed tbeir first night
together as in a sacred dream.
"Thy Ood shall be my Ood," whispered
the Chaldean bride. "Thou mightier than
Hurki, thou hast snatched me as a panther
doth his prey���0 my lord I" Her voice
thrilled with tlie pride that the weak feel
ill the strong.
"This day hath my Ood done mighty
things in Ur. Whither he leadeth me, I
know not. But this I know���I will obey
hiin, and lovo thee, until my death."
"Hush 1" said Iskah, her eyes roving
over the horde. "For behold, Terakh ap-
proaoheth,"
They had boen riding alone behind the
tents and household goods. As the old
man approached themaclose observer wml J
have noticed that bis venerable faoe was
much changed. A contest had passed over
him that had left deep marks. Forced by
fate into heresy which bis courage never
would have led him to champion, but
of which he approve 1 in tlie innermost
vaults oi his heart, his features had now
thai cast of decision which was needed to
nuke his countenance strong,
A Ood whom he had seen to be mightier
than the god he had made had  taken him
i by the hand, and  Terakh  was astonished
thai he had offered his palm in return. But
i Terakh was an old man, and he was weak
| with much emotion.
" Now thou art the ' exalted father' of
the people, -: I the aged man, bending
humbly lis    a,   "Thy mon inquire
1 whether they shall offer sacrifice lo Sham-
ash or to Hurki."

' But ihis I know, th ,' m '

[skah's glance rested 'or a momont upon
her lover's eyes, and then qniokiy passed to
the jeweled sky with a modest motion rare
in that age to ber sex and nation. She lelt
Ahn's arm enoiroling her with an imperious
insistence. It. was as if he bad forged
around her nook the collar of a sweet, servitude.
"Stranger than tho power that brought
ne alive out of the ziggurat of Hurki, and
out of the city of Ur, is thy groat, love for

"Teach thou me the new Ood. I will

Russia has moro than a third of all the
Jews in the W0*ld,and she is doing her best
to reduce this number, Ollicial statistics aro
nol quite reliable ou this Biibjcol,bul it is
assumed by the best Informed that Russia
must have close on to 3,000,000 of the He.
brew race. The United States and England
areshockel by the measures whicli the Czar
is inking against these people and charge
him with reviving religious persecution.
The Czar replies to this by pointing out that
the United States deliberately closed its
doors against emigration from China,whoso
subjects were represented in America to tho
extent of only about 100,010 souls, mostly
upon the PKiije coast, lu this matter,
moreover., uuioiac moves in harmony with
tho
overwhelming majority
of his people, high and low ; and were his
people lO'iirrrow to proclaim a republic,
one of the few laws which it would not repeal wnioci ne that which excludes the Jew
from Holy Russia. The Russian knows his
Jew better than we know him and is therefore better c,uabfied to legislate on the subject.
In England, "lews are met in every walk
of life���in the army, the diplomatic service, the cabinets, the House of Lords, and
amongst the boon companions of England's
future King. As with us, they have cast
off every distinguishing badge of their race,
and it is frequently only by accident that
we learn the nature of thoir religious creed.
In Russia, however, it is totally different.
There the Jew is as distinct a type as is
with us the negro or the Chinaman, Vou
can distinguish him as far as you can see,
not merely by the face and form,
SO OIUI'HICALLY DRAWN
by Mr. Penned in his work Tho Jew at
Home, but in certain peculiarities of dress,
to whicli he clings as pertinaciously as does
the Apache to his blanket or the Mexican
to his sombrero. The Jew of Kovno, Warsaw, Kiev, and wherever else I have run
aoross him in Russia, wears a curious
curl that hangs down in front of each ear,
sometimes to his chin. His cap of black
alpaca or cloth sits far back on his head,
close to his ears, with a visor as large as
those once fashionable amongst our brake-
men au:l conductors. His coat of black
clotii or alpaca is modelled after that in
which Dundreary is usually portrayed,
reaching down to his ankles, and assisting
to give him the long, lean, hungry look of
the Shylock type. On hia feet are boots
worn outside of his trousers, in one hand an
umbrella, in the other a valise ; for the Jew
in Russia is usually moving from plaoe to
place on business, unless he is so poor as to
be forced into menial occupation.
Russia has limited the territory in which
Jews are allowed to live toa narrow strip,
beginning in the Baltic provinces near
Riga, and ending at the Black Sea, following, roughly,

of the empire, along the borders of Prussia, Austria, Hungary, and Roumania.
These four countries���oi rather three, if
we regard Austria and Hungary aa one-

thc last census on the subject, there were
in Austro-Hungary 1,643,703 j German

The same'census gave forOreat Britain

49,439 ; Norway, only 34 ; Spain, 402. In
faot, as compared with Russia's neighbors,
the number'of Jews in other countries is
hardly worth mentioning.���[Harper's Magazine.
Cattle in London a Oeaturv A-jo-
A correspondent ofthe Mark Lane Ex.

general treatise on cattle, by John Law-
rence, A. I). 1809. "In driving oattln to
mark-' fourteen pounds weight of hay is the
i on ll nt allowance on the road to every fat
beast; this quantity is put into lho rack in

li Ittle  that in hot weather come to

spirits, thai If they were not killed they
would die, and thoso whose foot bear not
the journey well, do so wasto their luloes
through fatigue, that wlien they are kiilid
thi y will r.ot stiffen. These disadvantages
af infinitely enhanced by the subsequent
treatment of the cattlo, in thn streets of
London, where individuals of tbem, goaded
by the moat racking pains, and agitated by
extreme alarm, aro driven to madness, to
tbe heartfelt delight, not of the drovers
only,  as have been  BUpppoSod,   but of   a
beastly and ignorant rabble of all sorts to
whom it is a high gratification to Impress
with fright and inflict torture. From lho
violent a,,d oontlnued inflammation, the
flesh of the,e animals is given out to the public as food in a state of absolute gangrene.
All this, however, needless to tho extreme

THE PEST OF THE TWO DAK0TAS.
Havoc h'i-ohkIii by the Russian Thistle on
(lie I,anil of lhe Farmers.
A Washington special says:���How to
destroy the Russian thistle and afford relief to tho suffering farmers of the Dakotas
is the problem that the House Agricultural
Committee has been considering for some
days. The committee had before it a bill
bearing upon Ihis subject, introduced by
Mr. Boen, of Minnesota.
Tlie bill provides that lhe Secretary shall
investigate the extent to which the pest has
lodged in this country, divide the infested
urea into districts, wiih a Superintendent
for each district, and that these Superintendents shall contract with the residents
of said districts for the extermination of
the weed. The sum to be appropriated for
the purpose is 81,0(10,000.
Representative Boen, tho author of the
bill, stated that, if the thistle is not exterminated, it will not only destroy the wheat
but most of the farm product! of North
Dakota, The weed first made Its appcaranco
in 1S"S. It came in some shipments of
flaxseed from Russia, aud does not exkt
across the Canadian line.
Oov. Shortridge, of North Dakota, said
that the Russian pest is moro destructive
than the Canadian thistle. It has no leaves
and cannot be burned. It grows among
tho grain, and, when tho grain is taken on,
it grows into an immense mat of weeds
thickly interspersed with briars. It is
impossible to plow through it, and in some
localities farmers have had to abandon the
land, He earnestly appealed to the
comtniteo to give thom relief us the post is
spreading throughout, the ontire Northwest.
Oov. Shortridge read a letter from Mr.
A. L. Mohler, General Manager of the
Oreat Northern Railway at St. Paul, Mr.
Mohler said lhat, unless united action is
taken by the farmers, tho damage to the
land will bo infinitely greater than from
any of the worst grasshoppor plagues these
districts have ovor experienced. Unless
checked, it will extend to Southern Minnesota and North Dakota. Tiie danger
from this source is very great, as, if tho
grain from those districts is shipped to
other localities and any of the seod remains, the same trouble will dovelop iu
districts that are now freo from it,
Iu answer to further inquiries, Gov.
Shortridge stated that throo counties in
North Dakota near the South Dakota lino
have boen abandoned because nf tho thistlo
and about 70,000 square milos are covered
with it.
Major Oniric VV, Butts, of North Dakota
concluded tho arguments. In ono county
that ho traveled through last yoar he noticed fifteen quarter suctions that had bcen
abandoned, The horses' legs woro covered
with leather loggias to protect thom from
the thistles, and where the thistlo is dense
itis impossible lo force one's way through
it. It cannot be exterminated, lie said, except by pulling itup. It bocame so trouble-
somo iu ono Russian province that the Oov-
eminent for two years supported the peas,
antry, and only required that the latter
Bhould twico ii year plow the thistle up and
turn It uiidrr, Ho thought lhe united
States Qoverhment ought to destroy it on
its own land, whether it assisted the Bottlers
or not, No action was takon by tho committee.

Lying beyond the settled portions of tho
great prairie country of Western Canada is
a region of such vast extent that it may be
measured upon thc map by thousands of
miles. Very littlo is known about this
vast country. Portions of it have been
partially explored and are visited by fur
traders and adventuresome persons, while
other vast portions havo ucver been visited,
by whito men at least. During the past
season a party of explorers made a trip
through a corner of this great country,
passing through a strip of territory 8(10
miles wide, which was nover beforo visited
by white man. A large portion of this
back country is known to bo wooded, whilo
ether districts are composed of prairie laud,
and some is of a rough, rocky nature, whero
travel is vory difficult.
A few mission stations havo bcen established among the Indians who inhabit tho
great north country. These stations are
usually hundreds of miles, and sometimes
a thousand miles, from the borders of civilization, ur from tho nearest point where a
whito man may bc found. Far away in
the wilderness, a thousand miles from civilization, stands tho episcopal sec of Athabasca, whoso bishop, the Right Rev. Dr.
Richard Young, mado a trip oul this year,
and has given some information about this
country. By tho shortest practicable routo
the home of Bishop Young���the littlo hamlet of Vermillion���is at least ten hundred
miles from Edmonton, tho nearest settlement. The dioceBe of Athabasca includes
many Indian and half brood missions and
schools, struggling for existence, with
littlo or no support from tho Fcdoral
government.
Outsido the treaty limit (that is, tho Indians who aro living under troaty with
tho government) the govornment givos
nothing but a vory small grant toward the
paymeut of teaoherfl, though the Indians
aro increasingly anxious to loam. Dr.
Young relates that a samplo of red Fife
wheat much praised at tho World's Fair,
was grown at tho Christ Church Mission
farm at Smoky River. The possibilites of
tho future aro iiliuo-1 infinite. The soil of

n
/] Tillage and Manure-
The question has recently been discussed
ln agricultural papers, how much manure
can be used profitably in ordinary farm-crop
rotation, The estimates go widely apart,
Some farmers want fifteen loads per acre
every year, while others, and experts among
them, say five are enough. One thing is
sure. Manure, no matter how liberally
applied, will not make up for drainage and
tiliage on soils of a somewhat clayey character. Want of perfect drainage has prevented thc production of heavy cropa, and
consequently the removal of much plant-
foods. The soil, then, is yet well supplied,
but it ia difficult to make use of it simply
because you cannot easily break up the soil
'finely enough so the plant roots ean get hold
of it. Now put drains enough in such land
that the water will not stand on the surface
for any length of time after heavy rains or
Buddeu thaws, and then note the difference
in the way the soil works and how nicely it
pulverizes. This is not a now observation.
Yet thousands of farmers keep on trying to
raise good crops among hard lumps and
chunks of clay, and invariably fail. Drainage, in a measure, will make up for tillage,
and tillage in a measure for in",nure. I
therefore place drainage Iirst, tillage next,
and manure third in importance,
Part of the farm hore consists of just such
land without sullicient drainage. For years
it has been a mass of clods and lumps, and
resisted all efforts to get it into the desired
state of fineness by plowing and working in
Bpring. Last fall I had it plowed in very
narrow beds, thus providing a thorough
system of surface drainage. Part of theso
narrow beds wore put iu rye. The ground
was then in best ord,?r, and mado as fine
and smooth as a garden plot. The rye has
made a good growth, and no water now remains on the surface at any time. It now
looks as if there would be ajheavy crop of
rye this year.
But I have not yot answered the question,
"How much manure should be applied,yoar
after year, on snch soils after they are once
thoroughly drained ?" Students of agricultural chemistry will easily figure out good
crops iu the ordinary five-year rotation-
clover, corn, potatoes, oats, wheat���will
romove almost the exact amount of plant-
foods that is found in thirty loads of good,
average mixed barnyard manure, and that
therefore an annual application of aix (two-
horse) loads per acre will make up for the
loss. Soil and subsoil,as well as atmosphere
through clover, can well be depended upon
to furnish a material addition,and the land,
under this system of cropping and manuring,
should increase in fertility from year to
year. In short, I believe that with good
drainage and good tillage our avcrago
heavier soils will gain rather than lose iu
productiveness when the annual application
answers the lowest estimate of five loads
per aire. .Lighter soils,which usually have
the advantago of perfsct natural drainage,
seem to give up the plant-foods applied
more easily ; in other words, be more
wasteful with them, and the aunual applications may have to be larger,
Shelter For flogs-
The hog ia injured more by wet weather
than by cold weather. One of the most
important items in arranging shelter for
hogs ia to have it dry. The particular
plan or style is not so important as dryness
and reasonable warmth. Moro than anything else the hog shelter should protect
from wind and water. The roof should be
made tight. By filling in three or four
inches inside and providing good drainage
oulaide, dry sleeping quarters may readily
be secured.
Hogs bed closely together. If kept in a
good thrifty condition the bodily heat is
retained more easily than with any other
class of stook. If they aro compelled to
sleep in a wet bed they will often getsteam-
ing warm; then if they get out of their
beds to eat, and are exposed to a cold
wind, congeBtion results, if not actual disease, A good per oent of this can be avoided fir3t, by providing dry sleeping quarters, and next having their eating place
well protected irom the wind. Dry earth
makes the best sleeping floor, with sufficient
bedding to make comfortable. The bedding
should be changed sufficiently often to keep
clean as a filthy bod, breeds vermin and
often disease.
It saves feed to have tight feeding floor
for grain. This should be well roofed and
sided up at least sufficiently to protect
from cold winds, A little care in keeping
clean will aii materially ih maintaining
health.
It is not by any meana necessary to confine the hogs in close quarters. If well fed
aud comfortably sheltered and allowed the
run of a good pasture, they will make a
better growth thau if closely confined. All
kinds aud sizes of hogs should not bed together. Tho brood sows with young pigs
should have a place by themselves, while
the growing pigs, or what are usually
termod stock hogs, should havo a place to
themselves. Where any considerable number of hogs are allowed to sleep together,
thoy will pile up too closely for breath. The
surost way to prevent this is to divide
them up into lots, In this way tho fat-
toiling hogs can bo pushed, the growing
pigs can bo kept thrifty, and the sows with
young pigs can be well fed, each without
interfering with tho other.

nearly all known healing remedies. J.B.���
Yrou will find it quite difficult and tedious
to heal such sores as you describe. Apply
one ounce acetate of lead, one ounce sulphate zinc, water one quart. Apply five
times a day. Do not pick off the 8cabs,but
allow thein to remain on sores until they
fall off.
Worms���Callus.���Four-year old gelding
eats well but does not gain flesh ; has long
hair and looks rough ; bas worms, and his
feot seem tender. Also a three-year old
that cut her hind leg juat below the knee,
on a barbed wire ; healed nicely but loft a
l��rge lump and scar. J.F.H.���Give two
drams powdered sulphate of iron,two drains
ground gentian, and one dram santonine,
threo times a day in feed. Blister callus
with caustic balsam once a week.
Kicked on Hock Joint.���Five-year-old
mare got kicked on hock November last,
ono calk of shoe striking the chestnut, or
warty substance on leg near the joint; ou
inside of leg both calks cut tho skin, The
wounds soon healed. Her hock is quite
swollen. She trots very lame, H. M. F.���
Hock lameness is invariably serious if caused by a kick. Apply equal parts tincture
iodine and caustic balsam three time3 a
week, to be well rubbed into the parts that
are swollen.
Chronic Catarrh.���Shropshire ram affected with chronic catarrh; he also coughs
some ; has good appetite and is in fairly
good condition; is fed on clover hay and
oats. E. A.���Give your ram one teaspoonful powdered sulphate of iron, and one
tablespoonful ground licorice, in feed, three
times a day. Apply to inside of nose one
dram menthol dissolved in two ounces of
alboline, and apply twice a day, after washing out nostrils with warm water. Be certain that he does not suffer from grub in
the head.
Poultry Pointers-
Feed for eggs, eggs are worth money.
Feed any kind of feed that will make the
hens lay.
Give the fowls extra care during the
molting seasons,
Do not keep the hens too fat if fertile
eggs are desired.
Don't overcrowd the hen-house, keep it
clean and well ventilated.
Systematize the hen busiuess so you can
give the hens the best care with the least
expenditure of labor and money,
Crude petroleum is better thar, kerosene,
comes cheaper, and if often applied to you
hen roosts and hen bouses, will soou destroy
all lice, mites, etc.
The cleanliness of the hen-house is one of
the principal things to be remembered by
tha poulterer. Keep the hen-house clean
and the hens will pay you for your
trouble.
Clean out your hen-house every day if
you can afford the time and believe it necessary. If you are successful in the way you
keep hens, then that is a pretty good way
for you.
In administering medicine by placing in
the drinking water keep the birds from
drink for several hours. They are more apt
to take a good swallow beforo detecting the
taste.
The Leghorn is a good market bird,
judged by the large proportion of breast
meat, but they lack in size, and the large
combs are a hindrance, giving them the
appearance of old fowls.
A Rhode Island poulterer says that if
onion skins are placed in tho nest boxes
and then covered over with straw or hay,
they will be death to lice, the vermin cannot live where the skins are,
One of the reasons that failure is so often
made in preserving eggs, is that in nearly
all cases where the eggs are gathered from
different sources a few stale eggs get
among those that are fresh, thus impairing
all,
One dollar a year has for years heen the
average profit of the well-kept hen, but
the improvement made in feeding the past
tew years, aud the better knowledge now
possessed by poulterers, is placing the
average higher.
Unless the egga are for hatching purposes you don't want any male fooling
around the hens, Then, as shown by recent experiments, it pays to change males
every night during lho winter and spring,
bo as to give the bird alternate days of rest
and aervi.-e. Better limit the number of
hens to a male.
When a breeder sells fowls that breed
true to their breed in the purchaser's hand,
they become first-class advertisers, and aid
him in building up a trade for his stock.
But when ho sends out those that breed
badly, they do him a very great damage.
He will be fortunate if he doeBiiot hear imputations that he is a fraud and a good man
uot to deal with.
The proper winter care of fowls includes
such matters as keeping them clean and
warm, with a good run in which they can
take exercise, and if the situation will permit, let them have full liberty, at least a
part of each day, have the henhouse well
lighted, keep the roosts and nests freo from
vermin, and have comfortable, retired nests
for them to lay in. Divide into flocks if
posaible, so that not more thsn IS or 20
fowls will be together, If you are after
eggs, mainly, keep the White Leghorn ; but
if you want eeneral purpose fowls, we
know of none "better than the Plymouth
Rocka.

The Dominion   Compared  With
Other .Nations ofthe Earth.
.m  Enthusiastic foreigner's opinion ul
Tills Fair Lnud.
A Swedish journalist, Mr. A. Ealing.has
been travelling a good deal in America,
and is evidently greatly impressed with
the greatness of Canada and its resources
and climate . In quaint language ho makeB
comparison of Canada and other countries
in his papor, the Linkoping Oatgoten, from
which the following ia taken;���
I have travelled for two months in Canada and United Statea. During this journey I have four timea gone over the New
World between the great seas and the
Pacific ocean. Several times 1 have travelled from north to Boutb over big parts of
America. I have been reading hundreds cf
pamphlets about several statea, and I have
been comparing their statements with actual ciroum. tances. I have gonoover plains
and through woods, big as empires in Europe;
over mountains with eternal snow and
through valleys of eternal summer. I have
been in inhabited land like the paradise
and in uninhabited liko the desert. I have
heard the discussions of the Parliament in
ono placo and talked wilb the Prime Minister in another state. 1 havo talked
to leaders of political parties, to
many of the highest authorities. In
the United States there is moro than
500,000,000 of acres of free land, that is a
truth ; but the most of it is liko a desert.
So it is with Dakota, Montana, Idaho and
the eastern part of Washington, aud many
states south from there are of the samo
character. You can travel in half a day
without seeing a house. The grass is thin
and dry ; in many places you cannot find
any graBS at all, only steep, angular piles
of earth and sand. Not oven close to the
streams can you find any growth.
Taking a train going north we came to
Canada.   Il is
A   BEAUTIFUL   NAME
and a beautiful land. The bad parts of the
west in the United StateB are brown; Canada ia green. The first part we see of this
land is a meadow, level as a floor, infinite
as the ocean, and wearing a billowing dress
of grass and flowere.
After this we pass other mammoth mead
ows, and if the grass there is not as high
and green, the land anyway is much bettor
than the deserts iu the neighboring republic.
These mammoth meadows are thc prairies. The real prairies you will find in
Canada. Innumerable paths, treaded by
the buffalo, extend over those plains.
Fine is the prairie and green and very
often cultivable ; but more beautiful and
more suitable for cultivation aro the small
meadows, separated from each other by
streams and groves, These small prairies
occupy au even bigger part of Canada than
the great prairies.
But if the reader shall bo able to understand anything about Canada, he first must
know how great Canada is.
If we have Canada on this side, how muoh
do we need on the other Bide to get it
balancing? Wo first tnk> our own country,
with
ITS LAND AND WATER,
its mountains aud woods, Very extensivo
is our country, but against Cauada it is
nothing. Then we take thc whole Scan
dinavia, Norway, Denmark, Finland and
Iceland, but our balance is yet in the air.
We add England, Ireland and Scotland,
but without result. The English islands
could swim in the waters of Canada, and
it should yet bo water left around them.
We take three more kingdoms and one
republic, viz., Holland, Belgium, Greece
and Schweis. Yet we lack much. We add
the Balkan states, Servia, Bulgaria and
Roumania, aud with these we join Turkey,
but though we now have a dozen states on
the European side, Canada is still more.
We have to enlarge our side with the
great powers on thc Continent of Kurope.
We take all the kingdoms In the Empire
of Germany, we tako thc Kingdom Tita
lia, the Empire Austria-Hungary, anil
the Republic of France, and yet Canada is
more than all the other countries together. And now perhaps the reader might
begin to suspect how big Canada really
is.
We have forgotten Portugal and Spain,
but it makes no difference. How much
more do we really need? Just as much as
we already have. Just as many kingdoms
and empires and republics. But Russia is
left and is great enough to fill up the
rest.
Canada is, in short, as big as our whole
world, Europe,
Then we havo another question, in reality
of more importance, viz, ; Rowing a part
of Canada could pooplo live in ?
Nobody can give an oxact answer, A
largo part of Canada is yet unexplored, but
ycu oan be suro that tho
CUI.TIVAI1I.I! I'AHT OF CAN APA
is just as big as the before named Eurnpoan
states together, exeopl Russia ; jnst as big
as tho European homos for 225,000,000 of
men.
And hor .lany people aro now In Canada?
Canada '... stid nearly unpeopled, just as
unpeopled ns tho whole of Europe would bo
if only the Swedes lived on thoir peninsula
and the rost of Europe had no peoplo atall,
becauso now thc wholo of Canada has not
more people than Sweden.
But, you ask, how do peoplo live thoro ?
Is it not true what somo papers said recently that Canada is a bad country and
nothing else?
Canada can produce bread for tho whole
of Europe, that iB what the Premier of
Manitoba, Mr. Oreenway, told me, Tho
secretary of the state of Minnesota said to
me: " I will not deny that it is just as
good land in Canada as it is hero."
Another authority (either tho president of
the Northern Pacific Railroad Company or
tho United States consul in Winnipeg) has
said, according to a pamphlet, that threo-
quarters of the fertile American wheat bolt
is within thc boundaries of Canada.
The Premier of Manitoba might bo right.
Nobody can think of how immense and
rich tho cultivable laud in Canada is,
There you can get a field of grain big
as half a hundred such kingdims ns Denmark.
Every foot of this laud oan bo cultivated.
ITS KKKT1I.ITY IS IKORBDIMiB,
During thousands of yeara thc remains of
plants and animals and prairie fires arc
here buried together, and the result is a
black mould from ouo to many feet deep,
immediately. Not a stone, nor a stump
stands an obstacle in the way of the
plough.
The soil is rich���and tho samo immense
riches is iu the woods, in the mountains, in
the waters, in the coal fieldB. But how is
it with the climate?
I travelled in Canada during tho weeks of
August and September, and I was in a permanent enthusiasm about the air, The
days were warm, but not hot. During
many nights I aleeped in a half open tent.
The summer in Canada iB fine, the winter is
cold, but pleasant. People from Sweden
said they did not feel the cold more than at
hoine,evcn though the thermometer showed
aome more degrees. The reason is the dryness of the air.
PREACHED HEfi FUNEBAL SERMON
Hut tbe Minister Will Hhnrlly Olllciate lit
n Hore Interesting Ceremony,
A curious aceue, says the London Daily
Telegraph, was witnessed ou Friday afternoon outside Paddington Station. A respectably-dressed young woman, who had
arrived at the terminus from the country,
was proceeding in tho direotion of Edgeware
Road when a young man, also respectably-
dressed, mot hor, tumid deadly pale, aud
exclaimed���"Oh, Helen, wo thought you
wero dead," and would probably have fallen
to tho grouud in a fainting condition had
not tho young woman and sympathetic way.
farers who witnessed tho unusual occurrence
assiated him into a temperance refreshment house, where restoratives were obtained. Their case provod to bo a Btrango
one. The girl had for some time been a
shop assistant at a village on the outskirts
of South London, and had there become engaged to the young man, She left her plaoe
and returned to her parents in the country
for a holiday.   Somehow or other a
REPORT WAS SI'READ
in tho village that the girl had suddenly
diod from influenza, aud the news appeared
so circumstantial and detailed that it obtained general credence. The lover was
disconsolate, mentioned his grief to the
pastor of the Methodist chapel where he
and his sweetheart had worshipped, and the
minister next Sunday preached a funeral
sermon, drawing suitable lessons from the
unexpected decease of their young friend.
The young man was, it appeared, actually
on his way to Paddington Station, en route
to the home of tho girl with the view of
visiting tho grave, when ho met her in the
flesh, alive and looking very woll. She declared that she had written to him once,
and was astonished not to have got an answer. He on his sido averred that thc missive never reached him. It is very probable
thatthe Methodist minister who pronounced
her funeral oration will soon bo asked to
officiate at astill moreinteresting ceremony,
in which she will bo ono of two principal
participants.
EVIL0MEHSUPTAB SEA.
Some Tilings Which a Sailor Dreads ta see
Wliile on a Voyage,
A sailor always regards thc presence of a
shark about a ship as a most fatal omen to
the sick on board. Tho highest exultation
ever witnessed on a man-of-war, was occasioned by harpooning a shark that was
hanging about while a favorite was sick ;
but the appearance of a shark is often fatal
to the life of a bather in the ocean as well
as a sailor upon it, and it is quite as much
to bo dreaded. Ghosts of all sorts and
kinds prefer traveling by water to almost
any other mode, and our own Cotton Mather tells of a spectre that visited a colonial
ship, carrying oil'in a ghostly canoe seven
of a crow at a time. He also says: "Many
persons who have died at sea have been
seen within a day of their death by friends
at home." As late as the seventeenth century they tell a story of a ship about to
sail for England that had as passengers a
strange man and a girl of groat beauty. So
mysterious wore their actions that they
wcre supposed to lie demons and many
feared to sail in tho ship. The vessol sailed
on Friday and never reached its destination, but appeared, as narrated, after a
storm that lasted threo days ;
N'onror and noaroi' tbe ship came on
With all ber broad sails sproad;
The nlghtgrew thick butn phantom light
Around hor path was shod.
And tbe waters shuddered as on she came,
For against the wind she spoil.
Longfellow also tells a similar story in
his " Phantom Ship," while all lovers of
good music will remember the story of tho
opera "Tho Flying Dutchman." Thero is
a superstition that a ship uo longer seaworthy, just before breaking up botween
the strains of wind and wave, has boen
known to give forth wailing sounds liko
moaning. The sailor cannot, account for
thia, but he knows too well its import and
loses hoart at thc melancholy sound. This
is also noticod by Cooper in his " Red
Rover," whero ono of the characters is
made to say ; " A ship which is about to
sink makes her lamentations just like any
other human being."
New Hampshire cotton mills have a capital of over 160,000,000 and pay $16,000,000

Housekeeping.
Cyolinsr for Women-
Sir Benjamin Ward Richardson, whoae
opinion on the subject is entitled to weight,
holds that women cau indulge in cycling
just as safely as men, aud, moreover, that
the exercise is of great use to healthy womeu. It secures a quick and sure cultivation of the senses ; it supplies a good and
salutary muscular exercise ; it causes a fine
expansion of breathing ; it causes the lungs
to inhale pure air ; it quickens the circulation, and brings to the miud a free and
wholesome change of scene, which is a most
admirable tonic to the depression incident
to sedentary monotony. For all ordinary
purposes of cycling Dr. Richardson considers
that bicycles are perferable. Ladiea mount
and dismount them with more ease and
grace than men, and, moreover, they cause
less vibration than the tricycle. Lastly,
the drcas is better arranged on the bicycle
than on the tricycle ; there is less risk of
the folds of the dress being caught in the
wheels, and less resistance from the wind.
Twenty-five miles is a thoroughly good day's
ride for even an accomplished female rider
on a moderately good road. It is good for
women, as it is for meu, to dismount occasionally and walk, and it is always good for
them to do so when they arc climbing long
and steep hills. The chauge of movement
brings new seta of muscles iuto play, and
saves strain on the muscles of respiration.
... In training, and ever afterward,
girls should be taught to sit erect on the
scat or saddle, and always to have thc dress
perfectly free around the waist and chest.
The ankles ought also to be free, and the
dress sufficiently short to allow the movement of the feet to be untrammcled.
How to Cure a Black Eye-
The Medical Times some time ago gav��
this antedote for a black eye. There is
nothing to compare with a tincture of
strong infusion of capsicum annuum, mixed
with an equal bulk of mucilage or gum
arabic, and with the addition of afew drops
of glycerine. This should be painted all
over the bruised surface with a camel's hair
pencil and allowed to dry on, a second or
third coating being applied as soon as the
first is dry. If done as soon as the injury
is inflicted tho treatment will invariably
prevent the blackening of the abused tissue.
The same remedy has no equal in rheumatic,
sore or stiff neck.
Pneumonia a Caichi:.*- Disease- ,
The recent investigations of bacteriologist*!
have developed lhe [act that pneumonia is
dm to a peculiar microbe, the introduction
of which into an animal may be the means
ef inducing pneumonia, Dr. Orranos, of San
Luis Potosi, baa recently published a paper
giving some interesting observations ia
relation to this disease, which, ia exceedingly prevalent in Mexico. He cites numerous
instances in which houses seem to be infected with this disease, case after case occur-
ing in the same house. He also reports
other observations in which persons have
contracted the disease by visiting those
suffering from it. He considered this
disease highly infectious or contacious. In
one case cited, tho clothing of a man who
had died from the disease was sent to another family at some distance, and in a
abort time two children in the house wero
taken til with the disease. In another
case a nurse who had a patient suffering
frompneumonla,and slept in thesame room,
contracted the disease. In two yeara the
doctor had traced thirty-two oases to infected Louses.
We are constantly learning new facta iu
relation to the propagation of disease by
microbes, and the time may not be far distant when we shall be compelled to recognize pneumonia al a disease as positively
infectious In character as smallpox,although
its contagious cletneut is duubtless less
Virulent.
