We  desire that they should preserve all  the best characteristics, of their  race, and5hope that they will shake  hands with us, thus securing the  prosperity in South Africa, under  the flag which -protects different  races and different religions.''

How would Frida Fairholme be affect-  ���������ed by the news of my great good luck?  !I had been asking myself this momentous question ever since I had seen Mr.  'Quintan.

A Story In Which a. Dog Plays the   *f
a Principal Part. #
Not that son of Triam, the beloved of
'  Andromache, but still a real prince of
his  race  and  greatly beloved by one
small woman.    A magnificent mastiff
is Hector, as brave and bold, not to say
as gallant and noble, as many a hero
with two legs less.  As for dogs not being able to think, any one who can entertain such an idea deserves to live in
"a chill condition of doglessness" to the
,end of his days.  I will tell you about
��� Hector, and you may judge for yourself .        , ,*<"'���,
Having been suddenly thrown upon
my own resources, as so often befalls a
girl brought up in luxury in this swiftly whirling maelstrom of our American
life, I determined to cultivate the only
decided   talent  I  possessed,   that   for
painting.    Dresden  was recommended*
to me as'a place both cheap to live in
and offering'unusual facilities for art
. study. I accordingly,went there. Without a chaperon? -Certainly. I was to be
a person of affairs,  and pwhat-was ,a'
business woman to do with so costly,
not to say inconvenient, an appendage
as  a���chaperon?   Ail winter-T-studied
��� and  copied in  the gallery, and when'
summer came I took the little steam-
' boat which'runs up and down the Elbe,
bowing its smokestack so deferentially
��� to all the .bridges, and hunted' up picturesque castles'to sketch.
"*Lieben-felsen"'was the beautiful old
schloss I fell specially in love with, so
I finally persuaded an old couple" who
lived near it to take-rue to board for a
few weeks. They had rather a nice little house and a garden that sloped
down to the water's edge. There,'under
the overhanging trees, I used to sit for
hours-gazing up at the massive towers
just on the other side of the castle
wall. Now and then a feeling of loneliness swept over me,' and' my heart
yearned for some of the pleasures of
-iny, joyous past.
One morning I asked my landlady if
any of the numerous German laws
would -be infringed if I should go in
swimming.i At. first she declared'I
would drown' immediately, but when""* I
assured be'r that I had* known how to
swim since a child she finally consent-
^ed, wiih a protest as to the general un-
0usualness of American'behavior. --
How refreshing it was! What happiness ito plunge fearlessly into the
cool, clear- water! ' Not a living soul
was to be seen, not a sound to be
heard... Suddenly a great splash startled me. 'I felt my"bathing dress seized between the shoulders and myself
dragged vigorously ��� out of the water
upon' the bank. I was thoroughly terrified, but, fortunately, made 'no resistance. As I looked up an enormous
head appeared, and a large pair of eyes
gazed inquiringly into mine.
I had always loved dogs, but this
monstrous disturber of my peace was
so formidable that I dared not move.
He, too, was motionless, and I read on
his collar the name Hector. At last I
raised my hand very gently and patted
him on the neck, and. to my infinite
relief, I perceived a slight vibration in
the tip end of his tail. Just-as I ,was
wondering how far I dared presume
upon that friendly symptom he lapped
.commanding tones I could assume.
Then I coaxed him. all of which he entirely ignored. Meanwhile the other
one of the span was by no means quiet.
She was indeed perfectly furious.
She abused Hector, she abused me, she
abused the aristocracy, to which she
seemed to think we both belonged, as
'highway robbers and assassins! In my
desperation I picked up a stick to compel Hector to obedience, but she mistook my motive and advanced upon me
in a rage. "Silence!" We turned quickly. Just out of tbe wood came a young
man in uniform, evidently 'an oliicrr.
The dogs stood still in an* instant, tuu]

In 1SS2. In' 1851 Melfi, Italy, was laid,
in ruins and 14,000 lives lost. In 1S57
in Calabria and elsewhere not less than
10,000 perished by earthquake shocks.
One authority on the subject estimates
that in the years between 1755 and
1S57 the kingdom of Naples lost not
less than 111,000 of its people by
his   rough
all   over  my   face.
Then I sat up and laughed, and he
jumped and frolicked, as large as a
young lion, as .gentle as a kitten.
Presently I tried to go back into the
water, but to this he forcibly objected,
and I was obliged to submit. When I
returned to the house, he accompanied
me, to the terror of my hostess. "He
belongs up at the schloss," she explained. "The young graf is always traveling, and almost all tho servants are
afraid of him."
"Poor fellow!" I thought. He has
been lonely too. That is what we read
in each other's eyes. After that Hector and I were inseparable. He'came
every day, and we explored all the surrounding country together. I am sure
he thought���yes, thought, just as much
as you or I can think���that he saved
my life and consequently ought to appoint himself, my guardian. To me he
seemed like a living link to the beautiful old castle, a protector and faithful
���One morning as we were returning
from a long walk I saw advancing that
always novel sight to American eyes, a
woman and a dog harnessed together,
dragging a cart. In this instance the
cart was full of vegetables. It was evidently a market frau taking produce to
town. Now, Hector was a true knight,
valiant, loyal and gentle, but he possessed also that other characteristic of
knighthood���he brooked no intruders,
and no sooner did one of his kind appear than he challenged him to combat.
I knew this and trembled, but hoped
for the best. "      "
"Unluckily, however, that plebeian dog
as he approached presumed to give a
defiant bark, which settled his fate. Instantly Hector gave one spring and,
seizing his boastful adversary, shook
him out of his harness in less time than ,
It takes to tell of it, overturning the cart
and scattering the vegetables in every
direction. I was distressed beyond
measure and called Hector in the most
led! off, but the other- dog had been
pretty well chastised by this time. Elector felt his knightly powers had been
duly established, and he quieted down
bra deferential sort of way, r.3 if he
wore only consenting to it on iny account. Then the market woman began-
to wail that her wares were spoiled and'
she might as well go home, but when,
I gave her some money, and the gentleman-kindly added some-too, she harnessed herself and her dog again and
resumed her journey. Then 'i turned
to,thank my preserver. Hector, whose
collar I still held, was restlessly dragging me torward, so we walked on together.     /, f
"I am so sorry," I began, "that my
dog should have'made such trouble."
. He smiled. "Happily," he said, "the
damage was not irreparable."
' *-I,am very much obliged to you for
interfering just now," I went oh rather
excitedly. "It gave' me a chance to
briiig Hector away."
"It was courageous of you to do It,"
he replied. "He is a huge-beast for
you to defy."  .       ' '%,
"Well," I protested, "he would not
hurt me. He is' such a noble fellow,
and we aro very fond of each other,
Hector and I. Indeed he has been my
best friend all summer."
He looked down -on me and smiled
again. "I am glad of thatl"he said,
"for Hector is my favorite dog."
, This, then, was the count, and I had
been claiming his property. No winder Hector had'-, quieted down at his
He must have read the disappointment and mortification in my face, for
we had just arrived at the castle gates
and Hector had bounded away into the,
grounds when he raised his military
cap with,,graceful courtesy and said:
"Fraulein, we shall let'Hector choose
between.us. If ,he prefers you, I shall
never claim him and shall, moreover, ;
admire,his taste."
He walked toward the' gate'while I"
went on, but Hector rushed out past
him to  me  and  whined, pathetically;
then ho ran back to the count and stood
-   r    (
defiantly in his path. To humor him
his master came out again, and I turned and faced him. c Hector's joy was
unbounded. He jumped around us
both wildly and showed by every sign
in his power that he had no intention
of "cleaving to the one and forsaking
the other." It was so evident and so
amusing that we both laughed heartily, which seemed to establish a friendliness at once.
"He is '""oterniined we shall not part,
fraulein. Will you permit-us both to
accompany you home?" They did so,
and on tho way I assured the count of
my intention to return shortly to the
city, when he would probably have his
favorite's undivided affection again.
The next morning when I took my
accustomed place out under the trees
Hector soon came trotting gayly along
the bank, holding in his mouth a
small object of dark blue and red
cloth, which he deposited at my feet.
I picked it up. It was a military cap.
You may call it accident if you like
and say any dog will pick up a hat
and carry it off, but you will see how
mistaken you are. After awhile Hector's tail as he lay at my side began
to hammer the ground with gratified
thumps, and I looked up questioning-
ly. The count came toward us laughing, to get his cap. he said, hut he
must have forgotten his purpose, for
ho stayed to watch me sketch, and
the next day he came again and the
next.  .. ' ���' 7     '-������
I did not return to Dresden as soon
as I had intended. Indeed, I finally
decided not to. return at all. but to
make'iny home in the beautiful old
castle. I had always been opposed to
American girls marrying foreign' noblemen, and the count had had. he
told me. a most disapproving opinion
of American girls in general; but, you
see. Hector had made up his mind-
yes, his mind���not to spare either of
us. and he is such a fine fellow we
could but acquiesce in the matter.

The symptoms are those of a brain

The; skimmilk calf has come to stay.'
Men have learned by. experiments and
by careful feeding that skimmilk is
the cheapest and best feed for a- calf,
especially for the dairy calf, says J. L.
Smith in' Kansas Farmer. The greatest trouble is the danger of overfeed-'
ing. Most people seem to think that
because skimmilk isn't very rich they
must give the,calf lots of it, so they
pour it down him by the bucket without stopping to think what, a calf's
stomach is like, and the result is that
they soon have a lot'of. "potbellied"
calves. ��� ��    '
When the calf is a few days old, he'
Is taken away from the cow and put'
into a pen or shed to be taught-how
to drink skimmilk.   Then the fun com-'
n>__ces.   If the calf will not drink tlie
,milk right off- and is a little .stubborn,
the fellow who is trying tofei-d him
usually  gets mad,  jumps straddle  of
the calf's neck,  backs him up  into a,
'corner,  grabs hold of the' calf's head
with both hands and rams it down, in
the  milk to the bottom . of the pail.
Then the calf gets mad and bawls and
tries, to get away, gets strangled and
finally succeeds in spilling the milk.    .
It is  best to have a .little 'patience
with the caif and  remember, that  it
does not have very much sense at first.
After it has sucked  the  cow two or
three'utimes it should be taken away
and put in a good,; clean pen and fed
on its mother's milk for a week or two/
Then  begin  to   gradually' reduce  the
whole milk ""and,add a little' skimmilk,
each day until within a.co'uple of weeks
it will be on skimmilk alone.   A good
csubstitute forthe fat removed is a little
cornmeal  given-after "drinking.    This'
will also keep them from sucking each,
.other.   Overfeeding,   irregular  feeding
or feeding cold, sour milk-is very apt

way, because, it is always warm and

fed with a little meal and clean bright
hay, .calves can be raised on skimmilk.

A noted western man riding across
the country and noticing thousands of
.acres of cornstalks standing in the
field from which the ears had been
jerked said, "The farmer is conducting
the only business in the world that allows a man to lose 45 per cent of his
capital stock and at the same time to
live." Out of our great corn crop of
nearly bushels annually
only a very small part of the fodder is
turned to much account, says Kansas
Farmer. At the very lowest estimate
the stalks, yielding one bushel of corn
are.on an average worth 10 cents for
feed, even including the great corn regions, a total of S200.000.000 lost. In
the south generally little value is attached to cornstalks as fodder. In the
west .many, farmers let their cattle
roam in the fields and pick off some
leaves, eat a little of the stalk and
trample the rest down. Nearly the
whole of a cornstalk except'a very little of tbe thin, bard outside coating affords nutritious fodder if it is cut at
the proper time and well cured. It
needs to be cut when not so green as
to mold in the shocks, but not so ripe
as to lose all its succulence and become woody. Experience and observation will generally indicate to every
one the proper time for cutting it
Plant  Fodder  Corn.
Fodder corn is a cheap and valuable
food to retain the milk product during
July and August, when the pastures
dry up and cattle lose in flesh and
milk. It may be cut up and mixed
with feed, fed whole or used as ensilage. Every farmer keeping cattle for
dairy purposes should raise a large
field of it each year for summer and
winter use.   Sow upon good land in
Without any sort of sense or reason
man mauifests the same inveterate
enmity toward all kinds of hawks,,
owls, eagles and their kind that he
does toward snakes, when, with the
exception of the few venomous snakes,
the entire list of birds referred to and
nonvenomous snakes should bo rated
as among his best friends, as they constitute nature's most effective agency
to limit the uucVoer of the rodeutia���
rabbits, mice, rats, gophers. This is
a lesson which needs preaching over
and over.
We are asked about the fall sowing-*
of clover seed���for instance, on a field
of rye in middle September. We have
never known a fall sowing of clover
north of latitude 42 to be a success.
The plant is too tender to endure the
extreme cold of the winter. We have
known clover to be sown among corn
at the time of the,last plowing in July-
and come through all right, but in that
case the plant had time to get better
rooted and stronger. The best time to
sow the clover seed. Is iu the spring as
early as possible.  '
��� The man who last August was
cussing Providence and bewailing his
bad luck as he looked at his withered cornfield and offered to sell it,
and in not a few cases selling it at
the rate of $3 or'$4 an acre, in November found that the field yielded forty
bushels of good corn to "the acre, worth
$20, and a ton and a half of fine fodder,
worth.$12, or more than one-half what
his farm was worth, at $G0 per acre.
This was' really the worst case of
agricultural grunting and cussing that
we ever came across.

Tlie Old Fellow Grieves For the Sm_-  ferine���������Would Liglitenr Burdens of  Misery Hidden. Humanity Witli  Kind*Words aad Sympathy.  [Copyright, 1902, by C. B. Lewis.]  THE Bowsers had finished iheir  dinner and settled down for  the evening-, and all was going- well, when ' Mr. Bowser  suddenly ^noticed that the winds were  banging the-rear blinds with lonesome  sounds, and he grew reflective. Mrs.  Bowser looked up from her book and  noticed the sad look on his face and,,  inquired if be was not feeling well.  ��������� ,'Twas thinking of how map}' sorrow-  cful'hearts there are in the world tonight,"  he answered.    "Hark to that  "Mr DEA.E  BIB, I   K>'OW  JUST   HOW   "-OTJ  '*     ��������� FEEL." "   "  .   long drawn sigh of the  wind!    You  might almost believe it a wail of grief  ���������  . from a stricken people." <  "Yes; every one has his sorrows," she  answered, but at the same time wondering if this was the beginning of one  of his tantrums.,  "Thousands of hearts are aching for  kind words," he,went on, "and yet we  sit here in utmost sel_shness and have  . no thought or care. It is indeed a  selfish, cruel world, and I for one ana  ashamed of myself.'?  ' ��������� "But one "person can do so very little.". '  "But do we even do a little? Has  either one of ,us during this long week  spoken one single^word of cheer to sorrowing humanity?' I have gone around  selfishly intent, on money making^ and  you 'have sat here and bossed the cook  around* as-if sbe were a slave, and the  recording angel has found nothing to  our credit I tell you, Mrs. Bowser, it  , Is not right. Our conduct is simply  shameful."  "I don't feel any stings of conscience," she said as she remembered  that the cook had been out two after-  * noons and three evenings during the  "week and had came home almost tipsy  on two occasions.  "And why don't you?   Because you  have a frozen turnip in your breast  lYou really seem delighted at the ��������� sorrows of others.    You'd go out of your  way to  say  mean  things  to a  man  Whose  heart was breaking.    I   have  known you to read of an earthquake  Which destroyed 20,000 people at one  'fell swoop and smile over it"  .   The family cat had settled herself  down   for  a  quiet evening,   but  Mr.  Bowser's tones warned her that a circus was on hand,, and she got ready to  take n front seat, at the performance.   ���������  "If K you wish me to turn the house  Into  a  sorrowful , asylum;   it 'can   be  done." said Mrs. Bowser.   "We might  advertise in the papers that words of  cheer will be spoken here free of cost"  "By thunder!"  exclaimed  Mr- Bowser as he rose up, with his right arm  sawing the air,   "but it's  no  wonder  that pedestrians   sheer  off   from   our  .gate, and that stray cats never  venture across our back yard.    Intuition  must   warn   them   against   your   cold  heartedness.    Only yesterday  1  stood'  at our gate and sought to coax a homeless dog inside,   but he  looked  up  at  your  windows   and   howled   dismally  and   fled.     Woman,   1   wouldn't   have  your   heart  for   all  the   money   ever  coined."  Mrs. Bowser wanted to give him  back assgood as be sent, but prudence  closed her lips, and quiet reigned for  a couple of minutes. It might have  reigned longer but for another strong  blast of wind. Mr. Bowser, who "had  been walking about, stopped and shivered ns be heard it and then made a  sudden resolve.     ,7  "I shall do my fluty whether you do  or nof'be said as he passed down the  front hall. <  "Are you going out?" .  "I am. If a few kind words of mine,  spoken-to men who wander about in  these wail..lg .winds with no hope in  their hearts, will lift them up for the  moment, those words shall be spoken.  You needn't sit up for me, and if that  blamed old eat is still looking cross  eyed when I return I will jump her  out of the window."  Mrs. Bowser let him go without another word, and he had not yet turned  the first corner when he came upon a  man backed up against the fence. He  appeared to he just such a man as was  aching for kind words, and Mr. Bow  ser laid a gentle hand oh his shoulder  and said:  "My dear sir, I know just how you  feel, aind I don't b'iame you for it. You  have sought for one sympatnetic soul  in this cold world, but have failed to  find it, and your heart"���������  "Look here, old cock," interrupted  the man as he flung off the hand, "I'm  waiting here for my girl to come out  and go to tne show with me, and don't  you get too funny!"  "Aren't you a man with a burden of  sorrow?" asked,Mr. Bowser as he stepped back.  ��������� "Not by a jugful, old funny, and you  can pass right, on. I'm a journeyman  pi a tuber, I am, and the burden of sorrow is on the man who pays for the  solder. If I were you, I wouldn't drink  any more tonight."  Mr. Bowser passed on.   There was a |  tickling in his right ear, but nevertheless when' he had gone a block farther  and encountered an old woman lugging  a big basket he stopped her to say:  "Madam,   the , world  has  used, you  cruelly, and you aro making your way,  homeward'tonight with the feeling in  your heart that no one cares whether  you live or die."  "And who be you?" asked the woman as she backed off and looked arouud  for a policeman.  ��������������������������� "I am one who desires to speak,kindly to you and bid you believe thatsym-  patlietic hearts still beat"  "Oh,; you are! Well, now, let me tell  you that I am carrying home my laundry, work, and if you make a grab at  this basket I'll,yell out and bring people-who'll have you in jail ^in five minutes!"     **    *  '��������� "My dear woman, you can't believe  any such thing'of me. I left my own  fireside not ten minutes since to"���������"  "Then go back to it. * You are either,  an old masher or "you want to snatch  me basket Off you go or I'll yell out!"  Mr.. Bowser tried once more. He  tackled a sad faced, hump shouldered  young man 'whom the cold world bad  refused to sympathize with, but. bad  scarcely uttered ten words when he  was interrupted with:  "And is it asking me to go somewhere,and take a drink with you?"  "No, "sir. What I wish to let you  know is that I sympathize, with you  in the way this heartless world has  used you." e      ,    ''  "And there's no drink?"  , ���������"No, sir." ' -  Five minutes later.

Had some careless attendant left a  door or window open-that winter morning and allowed the bitterly cold wind  to   sweep  through -the  corridors  aind  wards, of   the   great   hospital,   there  would have been no more shuddering  among the hundreds of patients than  was  caused   by   this  whisper, ��������� passed'  rapidly from cot^to cot, from nurse to  nurse,  speeding .across to be .disseminated 'among the hundreds of students  in the adjoining buildings.  "Old Kenesaw is dying!"   ,  The attending physician,  summoned  hastily by the alarming symptoms, had  stopped   but   a   moment   to   hand   his  snow covered cap and ulster, to the receiving nurse.  'A glance into tho contorted, agonized face of the venerable  patient a touch of the pulse,- the brief-  est study of the paroxysms that were  but the surface indications of the ter-^  rible  torture -within,  and   the   doctor  turned away with a look of .utter despair (and helplessness. "��������� , *  <"Np hope;,doctor?"   The head nurse  had  witnessed  other'death  struggles,-  and it is said that nurses become .inured to such scenes.   But the girl's interpretation of the doctor's  manner left  her presenting a picture of abject misery.     "Oh,  dear,   dear,   to   think  that,  kind   Old   Kenesaw   must   suffer  so!"  Through h������r- wet eyes.she looked at  the, poor, wasted old body writhing and  twisting upon the cot    "Oh, doctor, if  you are quite sure he cannot recover,  is there ,uo way���������can't you make the  end Jess painful?"  Dr. Blank had turned away from the  scene and was looking vacantly out of  the window. If, he made no immediate  response to the nurse's appeal, it was  because he^was revolving the same perplexing problem inliis own" mind. Although he had grown gray in the hospital service, Dr. "f_lank was for the  first time face to face with a most violent case of .angina pectoris, but ���������---he  recognized it ��������� as hopeless beyond'all  human means. ��������� *'  What could be done to ease Old  Kenesaw in. a losing struggle with  death?   The battle could end but one  "He would creep to the cots of tbe-lit-  tle sufferers, chase away thoughts of  pain and bring smiles to their wan  faces with his inexhaustible fund of  stories.  Once when a child, scaling the dizzy  heights between life and ��������� death, had  cried for some goldenrod it was of  record that Old Kenesaw bad drudged eight miles to find a large bunchy of  the flaming yellow flowers and placed  them where the child could see them..  He lured the little patients to sleep  with bis quaint old- lullabies1 when  nurses' words and doctors' opiates had  failed. , Small wonder they all loved  Old Kenesaw, the friend, the comforter and the confidant.  The shadow that,had fallen over the  hospital when his fatal illness u was  announced was momentarily,' lifted.  There was unusual activity in thie  halls. An attendant had driven Di*.  Blank's horse to'" the entrance almost  at a gallop. A tall,man with coal black  hair and piercing "blade eyes jumped  out and hastened into the building. A  nurse was waiting to show him to the  patient's side."  Just outside the door of ,Old Kene-  saw's room Dr. Blank met' the new arrival. John Wilbert Ainsley. the celebrated Hypnotist There'was a hasty  conversation in whispers, a brief history of,the life of the patient, and Professor Ainsley knew, what was expected of him. "We must hurry," said Dr'.  Blank, "and, for God's sake, Ainsley,  don't fail."  'The,hypnotist npdded his head, and  the'.two men..noiselessly entered the  room. The great, specialist recognized  in this a supreme test of his skill and  resolved that his brilliant record should  not.suffer. He stopped briskly to the  bedside and took the* wrinkled hand of  ,the patient in his,own. .Then, without  a word, he gazed-fixedly into the eyes  ,of the dying man.  ,The veteran, half unconscious by  reason of the terrible pain he was'suffering,' at first paid no heed to the powerful figure bending over him. For a  few' moments,-he .groaned and tossed  about, but slowly, surely, the stronger  one was gaining the mastery.  Old Kenesaw now glanced into the  penetrating eyes and turned away, but  tive they had to obey, and the consequence was that they returned next"  morning loaded with herrings.  _ Snakes'  L>e&rs.  There are two very finely prepared'  skeleton's of tig,snakes in the National   museum   in   Washington,   and   in  making them' ready for exhibition the-  utmost pains were taken to preserve-  the   cartilaginous   extremities   of,   the-,  ribs,   which   with  ordinary treatmento  are lost.    Without these little pieces-'  of cartilage the serpent's'skeleton can  hardly be said  to be complete,  inasmuch as they are the feet upon which  the reptile walks,,as it were.

The few  seconds that the doctor stood there  pondering seemed an age to the nurses  and the internes, who first glanced in  sadness and terror at the patient, then  in appeal to the silent man at the window. Presently the doctor's dark,  hopeless countenance changed, and  hope was discerned in his quick command:  "Send for Ainsley. Take my horse  and buggy and get bim here quickly  as possible."  Then, as an interne hastened through  the hall to carry out these instructions,  the sad hews spread over the great  buildings, whispered by nurse to nurse,  by patient to his neighbor in the-next  cot:  "Old Kenesaw is dying!"  Never was a man more truly loved.  Many years before be had come to the  hospital suffering from old age and tho  ailments contracted in the southern  swamps during four years' service in  the civil war. Broken in health, without a home or relative, depending upon  his scanty pension to hold strong soul  and shattered body together, he drifted'into the free clinic and asked for  treatment As "No. 74" ho had first become * known . to the nurses and internes, but after he had related his  war experiences to them and had told  and retold with glistening eyes of his  greatest battle his title was changed  to Old Kenesaw Mountain and in time  to Old Kenesaw.  When Old Kenesaw enlisted with  the army of patients, it was thought  he would eventually be relieved and  discharged. After two months of good  care the old warrior was again fairly  comfortable, but he evinced no desire  to depart from the ' hospital, and, in  fact, no one wanted him .to go. He  had become a sort of general factotum,  and his services were regarded as  well worth his bed and board.  Old patients and new internes,  nurses, medical students, the entire  hospital staff and even the visitors at  the Institution came to know him familiarly. His slow, shuffling step and  the cheery click of his cane on the  hardwood floors were as familiar as  the scheduled visits of the nurses and  always as welcome, if not more so.  Old Kenesaw had access to every  nook and corner of the hospital. The  patients drew inspiration from his,  kindly old face, and his stories of  camp and battle served as a tonic.  To the children in the hospital Kenesaw was the incarnation of all that  was good, kind and helpful. He was  their chum, their never failiner fr'pnrL  .again he looked and again. He seemed .powerless to look elsewhere. Gradually the moaning ceased; he became  less frantic. Presently the body was  motionless. The thin lips moved, < but  no sound came from tbem. Only "his  rapid,, labored breathing could ��������� ,be  heard.     ' '       .       ' '  Thus far the hypnotist had said  nothing. His dominating mind and intent fgaze alone had sconced the cries  of pain, quieted the-tortured body and  made .the mind of his subject insensible to the terrific process that was fast  bringing his life to an end. But be  was going further. Seizing both the  patient's.hands in his own, he shouted:  ' "Here comrade, comrade! Wake up!  Come, come; it' will never do to lie  there! Come on, or the ambulance  corps will be picking you up! Tbe bullet stunned you, old man. Come on!  They need us at the front. Don't you  hear the cannon booming and the rifles'  cracking? Kenesaw! Kenesaw! Kenesaw! Hooray,< we've got 'em on the  run!"  The illusion had gone home. As the  dying veteran listened to these startling  words he drew himself up to a sitting posture and passed his wrinkled  old hands over his glazing eyes as if  to remove something that was obscuring his vision. Great beads of perspiration stood out upon his pale face, and  an unearthly fire came into his eyes.  The lips that had failed a few minutes  before now found utterance:  "Hist! Is that you, Cottrell, 'old  pard? Give me your hand! Thought 1  had lost you in that, last charge. No,  no; it don't hurt now; jest a scratch.  Where's our company? Sure! That's  our guidon half way up the mountain.  Hooray! Give it to 'em, boys! Come  on, Cot; give me your'^hand, old. pard.  It seems a bit smoky, but come on;  we've got 'em on the run. Hooray!  Hooray!    Hooray!" - . -���������  -  As the final shout of triumph came  from his lips he sank back- upon the  pillow, and the sweet smile" lingering  on the furrowed old face told that he  had died happy. Old Kenesaw had  fought his last battle.���������Chicago Record-Herald.

' 7  American   Agriculturist   finds . that,  several "years ago alfalfa was tried in-  Louisiana  by the experiment station  and gave satisfactory results.    When  sowed in   October on  well  prepared,,  land at the rate of, fifteen to twenty ;  pounds of seed per acre, a first cutting  can be secured in March or April:   As  much as eight cuttings a year may be  expected. -  ' This legume seems to do fairly well  in certain sections of Ontario, but as a  rule it is not generally satisfactory.  The hairy vetch yields a much greater  amount of green fodder and is in many,  ways more desirable. It is much more  profitable than the common spring  vetch.  , Alfalfa grows well on various kinds  of soil, provided the subsoil is open and  porous.

An illustration of the truth of this  proverb is found in Mr. J. G. Bertram's  book, "The Harvest of the Sea." It  seems that a monopoly of the extensive fisheries of Scotland and England  once came into the hands of a man  who kept his agents at the principal  stations and. required them to furnish  him all facts that came to their knowledge. .  At one of his stations in the far north  the fishing had been unsuccessful for  the greater part of the season, and  there was no prospect of improvement  when he looked into the matter. Upon  examining his . agent's letters from  that place for some years back he  found by a comparison of dates that  at a certain place herrings were likely  to be found. He-aeeordingly instructed  his agent to send his boats to that  spot.  The fishermen laughed at the idea  of a man sitting some hundreds of  miles away and telling them where to  get fish, but as his orders were posi-  Tlie Wo-klns? Cow.  In some parts of Europe they make a  practice of working cows in the yoke  as we do or used to do oxen, excepting  that "possibly as they want milk they  ''"are*careful to feed well and not overwork. This led to a series of experiments at Stockholm, Sweden, in testing the milk of cows so treated, and  they found that the milk was reduced  in quantity by the exercise, but its  quality was so much richer in butter  fat that the working cows actually produced more butter than cows equally  good that had no other exercise than  they found in gathering their food in  the pastures. This opens up a new.  possibility, remarks American Cultivator.  1 " j*...:      Greasy Collars.  A cloth dipped in ammonia and rubbed thoroughly on a coat collar will remove the greasy look.
