Only a Wa;
In our wftuderings do.-m ,.iin etrett,
yesterday, we passed a fccond-hand store,
outside of which was placed a wushboard,
on which was chalked: "10c."
If that washboard could he Bold at a
profit for ten cents it would havo ben
bought for about five.
And what a vista of misery and suffer
ing doe3 such and item fniijge-it.
"Washerwomen and laundry women, as
a rule, arc looked down upon with con
tempt by thosK who do nut follow
business. But there is no class that in
more deficrving of a good name than
those "who take in washing."
The business is not inherited, it comes
about by a natural progression of inevi
table laws, commonly termed poverty.
Tho woman may have held a high posi
tion in society, been wealthy and courted
for her intellect. The husband, in many
cases, may belong to a noble family, be
educated, and a smart man. But pover
ty gives Liui and his family a smack in
the face, and what is the alternitive ?
He can't procure work; the wife says.
"We'll take in washing." They do bo.
Their patrons "stand them off." Want
comes in at the door of their miserable
abode and they sell their furniture, in
cluding tho "washboard."
Oli! ye, who have never felt the pangs
of hunger, and adversity, do you ever
realize the sufferings of worthy poor.
In the depths of winter you throw off
your dirty, and in many cases, disgusting
linen, for the washerwoman. Articles
that you are ashamed to expose to the
view of your most intimate acquain
tances. The washerwoman leans her
weary shoulders over the w'ashtub, inhal
ing the fumes arising from the rags she
is washing.
She retires to rest about midnight
The work is finished, the child requeires
medicine the family want food.
Knock at the front door. "Go round
to the back, we've visitors to night."
She goes round to the back. They count
the pieces. Say there is one short and
complain generally about the appearance
of the articles at fifty ctnts a dozen, and
wind up by saying "call round Saturday
and I will pay you."
The woman returns home without per
haps a mite, and as it is late at night,
she is insulted once or twice by hood
lums. Her husband or child asks her if
she got any money, no, she answers.
"They told me to call, Saturday."
If there is any human being who pro
poses to be a christian, who expects that
they will enter the Kiag-lom of Heaven,
that beats th' ir washwoman with indiffer
ence or contempt or"stands them off, "then
such a person is a foul blot on the face
of human nature.

exist in spite of newspaper articles and
biblical teachings, but our mission is to

A Brays Engineer-
"Xone of the passengers killed? That's
good; lay me down; good-bye, boys."
Such were the lest words of Engineer
Robert Gardner, who died at his locomo
tire throttle on Sunday night last in the
rvilroad collision near Huntington. He
could have saved himself, but he was
charged with the safety of many passen
gers and he died at his post to save those
whose lives were entrusted to his care.
When he saw that a fearful collision
was inevitable, he thought only of the
responsible cfuty he had accepted, and
he stood to his throttle and gave his own
ife to lessen the peril to the strangers
who were in his care. He weakened ti e
cranh of the collision by standing heroic
al'y at the post of duty, and when he
was extricated from the wreck, mortally
crushed and mangled, he thought only
of the others committed to his care.
When told that none of the passengers
were killed, his last words were: "That's
good; lay me down; good by, boys."
We keep green the memories of those
who seek and wiu fame on the field of
battle, but where in all the bloody con
flict of armies is there exhibited tl e
grander courage that gives life to duty
and to the safety of others, when life
should be saved by peril to others ? In
nil the storrics of heroism there is none
more illustrious than the hero of tl o
throttle, who, having saved his pnsien
gers by sacrificing his own life, when
told of the safety of those intrusted to
his fidelity, sank to rest saying : "That's
good; lay me down; good by, boys."

The important is:.."
plowing has been r: .
its many phones by .
a bulletin glvinpr a report of result.' j. ..
observations gained and made on tho
Missouri state agricultural grounds. . Fol
lowing i.s a brief summary of these ob
servations: 0"
1. A deflection of the traces when un
der draught from a straight line from
shoulder to doubletree results In n decided
loss of power, and such loss is applied to
tho galling and worrying of the horse.
2. The use of a truck or a little wheel
under the end of the plough beam gained
It. 1 per cent, of the draft as an aver
age of the trials made, and in addition
gave a more uniform furrow and relieved
the plowman. This saving can be made
only when the line of draft is right.
3. The use of the coulter wa.s, without
exception, attended with a decided lo3S of
force or increased draft by whatever
form of coulter used, but was less with
the new stylo coulter than with the roll
ing and old fashioned coulter. The aver
ago gain of draft by dispensing with
the coulter was 15. 6" per cent. The coul
ter invariably disturbed the line of
draft, resulting in a furrow of different
dimensions from those formed without it.
4. The draft of a plow decreases as
depth of furrow increases until it reaches
the plow's normal capacity, and then in
creases as the depth is increased beyond
this capacity of the plow. This law is
modified by the fact that as a furrow in
creases in size the ratio of cutting face or
ed so of plow to the furrow turned de
creases. 5. The draft of a plow decreases aa
width of furrow increases until the nor
mal capacity of the plow is reached, after
which it increases again under the same
limitations as in previous case of depth,
yet it does not increase in as rapid a ratio
ns is seen in case of depth. The absolute
draft in a 15-inch furrow was less than
for a 10-inch furrow.
G. The discord of these results with
those previously found by others has
several possible explanations, one of which
may possibly be the influence of plow
7. The necessity of intelligently adjust
ing the furrow to the normal capacity of
the plow or using only plows that will be
normal to tho furrow turned was made
apparent. The loss in draft from a
furrow varying from the plow's normal
capacity by two points only was for an
average of all trials of varying widths and
depths 21 per cent. From the standpoint
of draft it is poor economy to turn a
small furrow. Three horses are better
than two in plowing.
no. 2 iMrr.oPER depth.
8. If one adds the saving from the three
factors discussed truck, coulters and
width and depth one gets 49.7 per cent.;
or a plow with truck on, coulter off, and
plow a good sized furrow, will give this
per cent, of gain when put ajrainst a plow
with coulter on, truck off and turning a
shallow, narrow furrow; or rather the
latter will draw 40.7 percent, harder than
the former, if the professor's data are cor
rect. 9. A seven by fourteen inch furrow re
quires about three horse power to turn it.
Tho.e who use two horses, either turn a
small, costly furrow or overdraw their
horses upon sod land of the kind in ques
tion a clay loam.
10. A furrow turned whose size is not
normal to the plow is usually, if not al
ways, a jerky or uneven one, poor and
hard on the workman. The accompany
ing cuts, which represent the actual
draft and its fluctuations at varying
depths and widths, show this. Attention
is called to the irregularity of the lines in
Figs. 1 (proper depth) and 2 (improper
depth) in comparison. The wrong depth
gives an uneven draft. The same was
found in cuts taken where a too narrow
furrow is compared with a furrow of
proper width. In both cases the more
irregular lines drew the harder of the two.
The Planting and Cultivating pf Corn.
The time for corn planting varies with
the latitude and also depends much upon
the weather. As soon as the days are
mild and the ground warm is a safe rule,
wherever that may be, in all localities.
Three conditions are essential to the pro
duction of paying crop of corn, namely
good seed, a rich friable soil and thorough
tillage. Progressive farmers have de
monstrated the economy of a thorough
preparation of the soil for the seed; in
deed not a few of our most successful
growers advocate and practice, as best
and easiest, the cultivation previous to
planting; that is to say, they do not use a
plow after planting, but let all the deep
culture of the soil precede it.
Where manure is required the better
way is to spread it broadcast and plow it
in, if coarse, or harrow it in, if well pul
verized and decomposed. When manure
is thoroughly incorporated in the soil, the
roots of the plants are certain to take it
up, and the development of ear and grain
will correspond with that of Etalk
and leaves, which is not tho case
when a limited amount of fertilizer
is placed in hill or drill only. To gain
the best results from the employment of
stimulating elements in hill " or
drill, available plant food must
bo near at hand and in suf
ficient quantity to carry the plant,
once started, on" to the perfection of
i.s formerly supp:
i . . .-j .i also a saving of labor ia
culture system... A plan of d!il
favored by some on light and r
dry upland, is what is known as f
row system of planting. Tl;
broken up ns muni and made i.?Ti 17""At
the time of phmtingone thorough harrow
ing is given and the furrows laid olf and
thrown up into live fret beds, the corn
being planted in the furrows brtweeii tho
bed--. The object of this plan is to insure
moisture to the crop. The fertilizers
are sown in tho bottom of the furrows
and mixed with the soil by running along
the furrows a sharp single shovel coulter
or dragging a chain through them. Then
the seed is dropped and covered.
The after cultivation in done with culti
vators, which gradually level down the
surface of the beds, returning the noil to
the corn and leaving the general surface
level when completed.
The system of "cheeking" corn, so that
the cultivation may be in two directions,
direct and across, is much practiced in
the northern anil western states. At the
east and in many of the middle states
planting in drills and cultivating shallow
and flat with cultivator and hoc prevails
among the more progressive farmers.
As to the matter of seed, farmers are
advised for their general crop's to plant
such varieties . as in former years have
proven successful in their own localities
and in soils similar to their own. Small
plots may be profitably employed in test
ing new and promising kinds introduced
by trustworthy seedsmen or other
An Improved Wax Uean.
The old German wax beau has long en
joyed an enviable reputation among wax
beans. It matures earl-, the flavor is
superior and its pods are tender, but it is
not so prolific as some other varieties.
And now is introduced for the first time
to the public the new prolific German wax
bean, an improved strain of the old fa
vorite German wax. This new strain,
which has been tested in many localities
with both field and garden culture, ap
pears to have given very general satisfac
tion. Vick, who has been testing it for
four years, has it catalogued this season
under the name of Xew Prolific German
Wax. His stock was started from a sin
gle seed of the old German wax, and
while the general appearance of the plant
of the new prolific resembles the old and
retains its good points, Vick claims for
the newcomer that it is a stronger and
more robust grower; its pods are strnight
er, longer, rounder, and that it is mora
than twice as productive in iact, com
bines all the good qualities of the old
with the improvements wrought by years
of careful selection and cultivation.
Wire n-int Stakes.
American Garden made an admirable
suggestion when it ad v Ned wire plant
stakes as worthy of adoption. In tiles-.,
days, when wire is so much used for
fences and .arbors, there are always short
lengths left over that can be utilized for
stakes. The authority referred to tells
just how to do this:
Take wire of sufficient strength to afford
some support (small wire will do for deli
cate little plants, but heavy ours require
stout); straignten
it and cut into
lengtns trom one
to three and a half
feet; then, with a
strong pair of
pliers or use of an
anvil swage, bend
one end into a
ring, as ia Fig. 2.
It is important to
put this curve on
the end, as it holds the tying material
in place without being so tight as
to choke the plant, and without it
the sharp wires are a constant source
of danger, being liable to catch in
tho clothing and seriously injure any one
thrown upon them. Groups of flower
stalks can be tied up by taking three of
the stakes and passing the string through
the wire loops. A better way when shap
ing the wires is to make some of them
into pairs, shaped as in Fig. 1, where the
tops catch together, forming a wire circle
to support the plants, allowing them to
develop their natural beauty of growth.
If these wires are dipped into thin paint or
black varnish they will last for years. An
easy way to do this is to stop up one end
of a piece of two inch gas pipe of the right
length, fill with the varnish and quickly
dip the stakes in and hang them up to
dry. Make these now -and you will be
glad of it when staking time comes.
Here and There.
Now is the time to study the catalogues
of trustworthy seedmen.
According to late accounts the Louisi
ana strawberry crop is the largest ever
Arkansas and Texas claim that the im
migration into those states during the
past year has been greater than in any
previous season.
Prof. De Muth is quoted as saying, that
hay fed to a cow between meals is worse
than wasted, as it interferes with the di
gestion of the regular ration.
In no way can a farmer with less
trouble enrich a poor field with scanty
herbage than by feeding sheep on it. So
affirms an English sheep farmer.

Cuba's Two ?lc;ils a IMr,
Only two meals a da; are served at Cuban
boteis. They live much as people uo in some
parts of Franco and Switzerland. You take
an orange or two with a cup of eofi'ee and a
roll in the early morning; a libera! breakfast,
in courses, is served at 11 o'clock, and a cere
monious dinner at 4 or 5 in the afternoon.
This mode of living is admirably suited to
the climate, and you fall in with the custom
:tnd liiie it at ono.
The breakfast opens with small olives and
fresh radishes served in tho same dish; the
next course is fish, then eggs, meats, etc.
You are not asked what 'ou prefer, but each
course is set before you and you partake of it
or not. Instead of beginning with fruit, the
Cuban breakfast ends with it pineapples
