aupposedly civilised belngi can be found
•Vinton to pay eatravageut sums for tbe
privilege of witnessing such a light.
Nor can tbe community which tolerates those bloody spectacles be deemed
to have attained to the common level ol
modern civilisation-—to mention the
word culture In connection witb eoub

populace wboae highest aspiration waa

It is to be doubted if the scenes in the
Spanish bull ring are more denrading
and demoralising than those of the
Anglo-Saxon man-nog. One thing at
least can be said for the Spanish * sport"
—the matador, tbe picadors, tbe baud-
erllleroa, can make no arrangement beforehand with the bull bo ae to tool the
people into belting un the chances of
tbe Mt, It is all danger; kill or be
killed Is tbe law tbeie. But the pugilists nowadays are adepts in gulling the
public which fondly iinagiueB that it Is
an fait wttb the machinery of the ring,
bat ia in reality the victim ol a class
wot noted for their intelligence,
And for Ibe thousands who gloat over
•very word ot the reports from the ring-
■Ide, detailing each blow, each gout uf
blood, each variation of the b* ,ujtly con
flict, little can be said. Vet it is the
duty of newspapets to cbroniele such
doings or suffer Ion.
The only way ln wblob lo it-move this
repioacb from the Anglo-Saxon name is
by tbe operation of the law, supported
by aclean and wholesome public opinion.
The United States has, we believe,- tbe
■nonviable distinction of being tbe only
country In tbe world where euch exhibitions can be held without police interference aud severe punishment for the
and Gilbert Parker are knighted, the
ormer, no doubt, for hii pamphlet on
the Boer war. but what has Parker done
to deserve this honor? What about
Herbert Spencer.George Meredith,Thoi.
Hardy, Qoldwin Smith, and one or two
more wbo have really done work tbat
riiei above tha level of railway fiction;
work that will live. Even wee Barrie,
or tbe fearsome Crockett, or that great
founder ot tbe Kaltyaird ichool, Ian
Mac Lar en, whatof them?
And is it not cruel to snub the Oroesai
ot the scribbling brotherhood, Hall
Oalne? He at least can content himself
with the aame eon temptnous shrug that
Holloway, the pill man, shrugged when,
on being introduced to the great William
Makepeace Thackeray, that frigid gentni
remarked, " Ali.'Mr. IT llowaj ? 1 hope,
sir, that you will have longer life than
most of the people wbo use yonr pills 1'*
"Ugh! "aaid Holloway shrugging bis
shoulders, as the immortal walked
haughtily away, " I could buy up
dt md like'you and sell you tomorrow I "
So could. Hall Oalne, wbose sheets of
copy " are as good aa hauk chi quea.
But then it is easy enough too, t«
understand why Herbert Spencer stands
without the gale in com.tinny witb
Meredith, Hardy, Barrie and the rest of I
the clan. Fur the same reason that
Oarlyle'e remar* abjut the blow to
flunkeyism wheu Cromwell cut off
Charles the First's head, lost him all
chance ol a handle to bis name, so Herbert Spencer's bold statement tbat the
British people obey no laws but those
tbey have made themselves; that although nominally a morareby Britain is
a pure democracy bae alarmed the advisers, Tbsse famous aiioma and one
or two more which caa be found tn that
entrancing book " First Principles,"
settled Spencer's case.
Hardy makes one uf the characters in
that charming novel, "The Hand ol
Etbelbarta," eay sime bitter things
against the aristocracy, so no honors for
Mr. Hardy. Meredith In srveral spots
In his novels hardlv veils his contempt
for the aristocracy, and he is the man
who entered poetic protest againat that
insulting and degrading nlckuame which
by the unthinking eud inartistic is applied to the finest soldiers lo the world—
"Timmy Atkins," Meredith serf of
tbat hideous name: " ham to tbe e*r as
an sbb's bray." Si much for Mend th.
Then Hold win smttb his taker nr
pains to conceal his aversion and con
tempt for the privileged classes, and his
hostility to the state chnrch is too well
known to need comment here, or anywhere etae. Hence, in spite of an Intellect that towers like the Himalaya
only at the expense of inferiority of
lasting power, wo naturally feel suspicion about eimilai statements with regard to other BritiBh trades."
Let the benedicts take heart. Here is
bow the Family Doctor, an Kngllah
periodical howls over a complaint tbat
has done much to make mariied men
bald-headed and prematurely grey :
All this talk nbout women heirij- ihe

Very odd that a party of officers of the
'crack" regiment uf U (tarda b> ould,
almost simultaneously with the publication of the sensational and astounding
report of the commission of ei.quiry into
tbe education of British < flitters, give so
startling a proof lhat Bornethit.g ie

of the Guards who maltreated their

undesirable," and, worse thnn that, a<
efficient soldier, is not what one wuuld
expect from officers or geutlemtn. We
ahould very much like to know iu what

"I mn going to hnve n husband If I

that 1 mn not going to die nn old maid

they aro."
A merry peal of laughter greeted this
sally, for the speaker, Mny Wilding,
was a favorite with the girls as well
ns men. per auditors were n group of
.voting women who bud arrived that
duy for n visit with their college class*
mate, Gertie Slanders.
"Wt shall hear of your prowling
through the woods next with Dick's
rifle over your shoulder, looking for a
man, I suppose," said Gertie. "But to
come down to realities, girls, it la tlmo
we were in bed if we intend picnicking iu the morning." Aud tbe matrimonial discussion wns closed by a
scattering of guests to their different

shall put you tonight," Gertie remarked to Mny us she ushered ber down the

But I forgot—you uro it huntress yourself!"
"Yes," laughed Mny; "I can bit tbe

by my shooting. By tlio way, Gertie,
let me show yon something." And,
opeulhg Iur trunk, she look from It nn
old fashioned revolver minus u lock
und with only the stub of a trigger.
"Oh, what do you carry thnt with
you for?"
"To scare away burglars when I
meet thorn," replied Mny, displaying
tlie Innocent weapon which ber small
brother bud dropped in as a Joke while
she wns packing ber trunk.
"Well, there Is no danger of yonr being disturbed by them here," laughed
her hostess.
"One never knows," snld May, with
1 pout and n shrug of her shoulders,

"Mother or Gertie! How do you

"Because I happen to be her brother," was tbe amused reply.
"Her brother!  Dick!"
"Yes, Dick, at your service. And
now, as I have said once or twice before, if you will excuse me I will go
and limit them." Ho passed swiftly
through the bathroom, nud n moment

"Can It be Dick, or ought I to glvt

"Why, Dick! What do you mean by

We nil thought you would remain ln

"Quito nn adventure," murmured
May ns she dropped to sleep half an

of tbe stairs, muttering:
"I forgot the bathroom. They mny

In grafting a seedling one or
two years old tho graft is put
on just above the ground und but
one cutting is used To gruft a
tree to change the fruit is another
matter and instead of cutting the
tree off below the limbs throe or. four
of the lower limbs are cut off eight
or ten inches from thu trunk
or the main branch and two cuttings or grafts arc placed in each
limb. Should the operation prove
successful the following year all
tho brunches above the grafts
may be removed with little danger
of losing the tree. A tree of
most any age may be grafted in
this way    and in    a few years    be
Doing Their Arithmetic,
Children believe so confidently what
they hear thnt If they do not bear accurately their minds sometimes run
into queer fancies. A well known professor remembers tbat when he was a
child ho Bang "Glory, glory, had a new
year!" for "Glory, glory, halleluiah."
A story of a similar childish misunderstanding of sound Is told by a Sunday
school teacher.
The Infant class was reciting tba
Christmas lesson. Six-year-old Harold
was called upon to tell the story of tha
Saviour's birth,
"Well," he began, "the shepherds
were out ouo night doing their arithmetic when thc angels came"—
"But stop, Harold," interrupted tbe
puzzled teacher, "and tell me what you
mean by that,"
"Well," replied Harold, "I don't see
how they could do arithmetic In the
dark, but that's what they were doing."
"Now think, Harold," said the teacher, "and tell the story as nearly as you
ciin In the words of the Bible."
So Harold began again: "One nlgbt
the shepherds were dividing lu tbe
"Ahldtng" hnd sounded to bis ear like
"dividing," and dividing waa "doing
their arithmetic."
Frandnlent Jewels.
Since solutions of aniline dyes possess the property of Imparting to genuine Jewels as well as glass paste a
deep, rich color If left long enough Immersed In them and since tbey possess
nlso the property of Imparting precisely
the characteristic color of a genuine
Jewel the swindler has lt not only In his
power to dye cut glass paste, but also
Inferior cut gems, of tbe color of a
ruby, on emerald or a sapphire, since
fuchslne Is tho handsomest ruby red
shade, while bleu de Paris Imitates absolutely that of the sapphire and aniline green thnt of the emerald.
Such a fraud, however, can be made
ttill more complicated by using genulue
off colored rubles, snpphlres or emeralds and dyeing tbem with, the corresponding aniline dyes, thereby raising
their value tenfold. It Is exceedingly
dllllcult to recognize this fraud because
the color of such a well corroded jewel
can no longer be washed off even with
hot water. Only the blenching power
of sunlight might after a time assist in
revealing the swindle.
in good bearing. The grafting outfit is simple, comprising a jack-
knife, small saw and a dish of
grafting wax. in selecting grafts
only the last year's growth of now
wood    should lie chosen.
Figure A shows how to mako the
scion, says the American Agriculturist. They may be several Inches
long and contain two or three
buds each. The bottom end which
ls to be inserted into the limb
should be wedge shape. Figure B
gives an idea how the limb appears
with a split top In which the
grafts are set. Two cuttings
should be placed fn each limb
to be sure of a good stand. After they aro placed In position
some orehardists bind them in place
with cord or twine lo make
them secure bcforo tho grafting
wax ls applied, This answers an
a safeguard, but is not absolutely
necessary. In placing the scion
It is important to havo the
inner bark* of the scion und stock
come together so that the sap will
flow from the tree to the cutting.
After thia is done tbo wax should
be applied so that tbe joint or
splice la well covered, thus keeping out the air and water. Should
all tho grafts live the weaker ones
should be pruned away.
UunUllMB  11 tenure in Cold Weather.
An article on tho handling of manure in a recent number of this paper
interested me greatly. I have obtained the best results by hauling
out manure and making lu piles lu
tho fall, when other work is not
crowding. I clean out my stables
thoroughly, adding nil the loose
chaff and struw of tbe threshing
yard. It Is not at all nouessary tbat
the straw be rolled when put out.
I put live loads in a pile. With a
road scruper 1 go over my barnyard and with the scrapings cover
the piles to a depth of about six
Inches, leaving them flat oa top tbat
through the winter tho water may
soak in mul rot the immure.
After plowing in the spring I run
the harrow over to level the ground,
then spread the uuitturv and dirt
from tho piles. It gets well mixed
In tho handling. I spread as evenly
as possible, then go over with a cultivator ami follow this with a harrow. This leaves the ground in oa
Ane condition as can be desired. This
past season on land prepared this
way I raised three acres of aa fins
tobacco as I have ever grown, The
land was In corn tho year before
ami was not vory good land at that.
I grew my tobacco one season by
putting my manure in the hill. It
did well, but tho year following when
sown to grain, the latter grow in
hunches and was not satisfactory,
simply because the fertilizer was not
evenly spread. Tbls trouble ta obviated by the method described.—American Agriculturist.
Te Grade llltclien nnd Drain*.
A device for assisting in getting
the grade while digging drains is
described by W. It. Smith, Somerset
County, Me. ln Orange Judd Fm-wr
he says: I took a piece ot board a, a,
4 foet long, 7 Inches wide, and nailed
ou two three cornered pieces, b, b,
cutting out tho section uf tho board
bot.we.-n them, us shown in the illustration. Then I nailed a piece of
lath across tho tops of the three-
cornered pieces. A piece of clapboard,
d, 3 feet long, wns sharpened nearly
to a point ou (he thin sldo and nail-
ed diagonally to tbo side of tbo 8-
foot board, thin edge down, ho thnt
the point of the chipboard would bo
about 20 Inches above the centre of
thu lath.
A plumb line and bob Is suspended
from tho point above the centre ■ of
the lath. If tho lower edge of tho
hoard is strnlgbt and plflcod in a
level posh inn the line will hung at
right uiigles with it. Have tlie edge
of tho lath planed. Take a sharp
pencil and murk each sldo of tlie line
and cut a notch on tho Inth. To illustrate the use of the device,when
tho board Is level, ll n U-lnch block ■
Is put under o nd and a notch cut
