After England's vacillating policy In
respect to "tbe unspeakable Turk" and
the Armenian question, Mr. Gladstone's
direct, vigorous words on the subject
are refreshing With till the force and
vigor which he ever displayed When In
bis prime the ex -premier In his speech
at Chester denounced tbe Turkish Gov
ernment for "its horrible, infernal
work" with the Armenians and called
upon her majesty's government to take
such action as will forever prevent a
repetition of the outrages. The entire
nation, he thinks, is ready, Irrespective
of party, to support tbe government In
whatever steps of this kind It may take,
lie would have England refuse to ac--ept
any more of tbe Turk's promises.
The way to accept the sultan's promise
of reform Is to make It impossible for
bin to break the promise. The rest of
Christian civilization echoes Mr. Glad
stone's words. England, wltb ber nu
merous international complications, has
been strangely timid to take harsh
saeasares with Turkey. It Is time for
another line of action and it is emln
atly fitting that the Inspiring force In
this movement should come from Glad
atone. It England sets the Inltatlve It

"Ves, I guess I'll do that much for

and went back. The fly was quiet,
and he advanced his thumb and finger
and carefully picked It off and dropped
It on the floor.
"Wha-what Is it?" asked the bald
headed man as he roused up.
"A fly on your nose, sir."
"A fly, eh! Where Is It? Ah! I see."
He picked It up and replaced It on his

Climbing Mont Blanc.
It is an expensive as well as a very
tiresome undertaking to ascend Mont
Blanc. It costs at least $50 a person,
for by tbe law of tbe commune of Cha
mouni each stranger Is obliged to have
two guides and a porter. So far aa
the danger Is concerned, it Is now re
duced to a minimum, but almost every
year the mountain claims a victim. Bad
weather Is the chief thing to be feared
by the guides, and so swiftly does It
come that a cloudless sky may In fif
teen minutes turn to a blinding snow
storm which beats you to tbe ground.

i t H K management of husbands Is
I a topic not uew. but of never
failing interest to the mass of
women w ho find their matrimonial path
not completely obscured from view by
rose leaves. A clever writer when
aked her views on the subject said:
The wisest women usually know the
least about managing a man. If you
wl-h to gain ideas of value ask a little
woman with a retrousse nose, and a
weakness for bonnets aud changing
fashions. The sensible woman wouldn't
be like her for the world, aud yet teu
to one that little woman has the more
sense of the two 1. e., more sense about
the vital questlous of life relative to
doiuestic happiness. She won't tell you
ber secret of making a devoted slave
out of a selfish every da kind of a man,
but you may depend upon It she doesn't
worry about the butcher aud the baker
aud other bill collectors who call on
the first of the mouth. She buys silk
stocking? and wears ribbon bows on
her underwear, and sews sachet power
Into her gowns aud never lets hltn know
she can wash dishes or make beds or do
commonplace work that you can hire
done for three dollars a week. He, in
the meantime, plunges ahead to get the
money to meet obligations aud keeps np
a stiff life Insurance besides to take
rare of ber after he la gone. He has no
time to flirt. It Isn't a good thing for a
man to have too much time on bis
hands. The best of them are Inclined to
flirt This Is what the pug-nosed wom
an would tell you If she told the truth.
She won't tell you, though. She Is far
too smart to do tbat. Every one has
her business In life. The business of a
married woman Is to make a good man
a model man out of the mail she mar
ries. This Is not simple of achieve
ment. It often requires both courage
and genius. A man scorns the Idea of
being "managed." The mule, who only

Just ahead of bis nose didn't know that
the turnip was there to make him go.

A new system of barn building has
been lu use in Central Ohio for a se
ries of years, which Waldo F. lirowu
describes as giving a barn a far great
er strength Uinu the old plan of heavy
timlM-rs mortised and tenoned together,
with a saving of about half the frame
timber aud more than three-fourths of
the work of framing. This barn Is
called "the plank barn," and the entire
frame Is made of two by eight planks,
except nails, tins and rafters, which
are two by six. There Is, according to
the New England Fanner, uot a mor
tise or tenon in the building, but It Is
put together with spikes and carriage
boltH, and two men will form a large
bam ready to raise In four days, such
a one as It would take them four weeks
to frame on the old plan. At ?2 per
day for carpenters, the saving In wages
would be $) lu framing the barn, and
as a farmer must board his carpenter,
counting the board of two men for
twenty days at .Vl cents each per (lay,
we have sa-ed J0 more, making the
saving lu labor and board $100, be

This could be swung out fifteen feet

could be asked for? And It works as

Eden In American Agriculturist
A flood Ho II to Cultivate.
R. S. Kingman, speaking of the bet
ter education of agriculturists, well
says: "Fertilize the brains of the far
mers wltb good practical knowledge,
then they would be better prepared to
fertilize their farms Intelligently." Ev
ery lawyer in the land must fertile his
brain or be will fall. Every docotr,
every banker, every merchant, every
editor must do the same or they will
fall. And yet Id the face of all this,
and In face of the fact apparent on
every hand that It Is tbe brainiest far
mers who succeed beet, there can be
fquud farmers In every neighborhood
who really think that It does not pay
to cultivate brains In farming. They
think It Is money thrown away to buy
books, papers or attend conventions
or farm Institutes. If they thought
these things paid, we would see them
hard at It, for they want money bad
enough. Good thinking lies under the
succeMs of every man In all kinds of

A Portable Fence.
It Is often more enocomlcal to pasture
off a piece of rich fodder than to cut
It nnd wheel it away to the sheep, or
other stock. The lack of a fen often
prevent this. A portable fence can
be made after the suggestions given In
the sketch, which Is from the Orange
Judd Farmer. A few panels of this
will Inclose sufficient feed for a day's
cropping, and can be shifted to new
ground the next day. If sheep are to
be thus folded, an extra board will be
needed In each panel. These panels may
be 12 or 14 feet In length, well braced
to keep the fence firm as to lengthwise
motion. The crossplece at the bottom
of the uptight Should be long enough

Clover snd I'otanh.
Analysis of crimson clover shows
that It has a large proportion of pot
ash. Some of the failures to grow It
esjKflally on sandy soil, are probahly
due to a deficiency of potash. The
common rod clover frequently falls
from the same cause. A dressing of
wood ashes, or, where this can not be
had, of muriate of potash, will secure
a seeding where without It there have
betn reieflted failures of clover to
catch. Heavy soils have usually a con
siderable amount of potash, but even
on these a potash dressing often gives
beneficial results, for It presents ths
mineral plant food In available form.

tbey may be gathered and placed upon
a table In the sun. In a day or two.
after exposure to the sun, they will
be ripe. Only the largest and whitest
ones should be taken, the small or
green ones will wilt If taken off too
early. This Is the way the early toma
toes are ripened, when thpy command
