The invesi!gti"a of the coffee trust has opened the eyes of the people to a nriubcr of things and has brought out the statement from a New "."oik man that the thousand of people who speak of their morning cup of Mocha" do not know what tiny are talking about. According to this person, who is George II.

In the course of time he was Informed tliat the bug was a very rare one. and that the de partment would like to have a lot more of them. The scientist was enthuslas- tic over the fact that this particular bug had the head and thorax coarsely j punctured and that the little tubercle: on the vertex behind the ocelli was) wanting, and that the nrothorax. sen tellum, and postseiitcllum were cari- nate. Moreover, the squama arising frotn the posterior lateral ledges of the puatscutclluin were produced Into long, In-curved points. He also stated offi cially that the metathorax was reticu late, with a triangular median area which is open above, with transverse striae within arid passing Mow Into a long median carina, the lateral faces being Ktriato-puuetuate and the striae transverse. The editor was so much impressed with this profound descrip tion tliat he has developed into an en thusiastic entomologist and lias been so industrious In collecting for the de- partment at Washington that t'.iere isn't a cockroach to lie seen in his office.

A new navy which can steam from Hampton irfiads to Churleston with a loss of only four dead and seven wounded certainly deserves the re spectful attention of a nation that Is too prone to poke fun at Its own light ing machines. The new navy evidently U no laughing matter. Mrs. Nansen Is either very uncom municative or else she Is uot on speak ing terms with the north pole, for when she was recently asked by a reporter concerning her husband's explorations she replied: "I know nothing about Nansen." With such a wife as that It Is not hard to see why Nansen seeks high latitudes. The miners on Glacier Creek.

There is In Kentucky a lady T years old who 1s now living with her seventh husband.

A ridiculous tyiHigr.iphlcal error In an Arkansas paper has aroused great Indignation In a little town In that Htate. A wedding took place between two prominent members of the village society, and the edilor took particular pains to give the young couple a good "send-off." He wrote up the event in florid style, and displayed It under a three-lino head, snd enjoyed the con scious feeling of dty well performed.

Republican thinks that the Sultan's melodramatic remark, "1 may be the last of the Ca liphs, but I will never become a second Khedive," must have had a hidden meaning.

It Is to be boied that none of the officials concerned will weaken when this matter reaches a tent. There Is -no reason why any consideration should be shown to the offensive per sons who indulge In this outrage on public decency. A tragedy Is reported from a small village In Hungary that reads like a grim carnival of crime. Eighteen wives In the community, It appears, were de sirous of ridding themselves of their husbands and they made a social func tion out of the affair by simultaneously and successfully administering poison. The husbands must have been wholly unsuspicious or complacent, for It ap pears tliat all died promptly and with out any protest or offer of compromise. The words of the report, which are ''Eighteen procured poison which they administered to their husbands wilh fatal result," suggest the spectacle of the husliands standing aligned to re ceive the dose much like an array of children preparing for an application of sulphur In springtime. They may have reciprocated the sentiments of their better and energetic halves so thoroughly that they were willing to accept this means of escajie from fur- tner eartmy troume. it is more prooa- ble, however, that they were not aware of the little surprise in store for them and did not appreciate their proximity to the end of life until It wo too late to nrenare any adequate defense. West- ern civilization has occasionally been darkened by individual Instances of this kind, but st no time has so large an aggregation as eighteen wives hap- peued to reach the poison mania at so nearly the same time as to make a Jopit exhibition out of the function. It Is a very radical method for women to re sort to when they happen to grow tired of their husbands, but too spectacular to warrant general popularity. He Wondare l.

The other sketch represents a more elaborate house, which can be made according to the number of birds for which It Ut required. The illustration explains itself, and the space under the floor is of great advantage, as It gives protection from the weather and Is much appreciated by the birds. The house should be removed every few days on to fresh ground. It will b noted that two important points, light and ventilation, have received attention from the designer of this house. Strong handles placed at each end would fa cilitate removal, or the house could readily le fixed on wheel.

Transplanting Lartre Trea, When a large tree Is removed from the ground, as much earth as possible should be taken up with it, so that the small, fibrous roots may uot be greatly disturbed. The tree will have a much greater chance of living In IU new loca tion If this Is done. Dig first atiout the trunk at some little distance away, but do not cut off the big mots that are met Follow these out for some distance. When the trench Is dug about the tree, work under the roots aufl get chains or ropes about the ball of earth lu two or more directions. Then set a long pry in the manner shown in the Illustration, when the tree can be gently raised. A MANNKK or TBANAI'I.ASTIJIO, drug or stone boat can then tie sllppei under the ball of earth and the tree hauled home on it, without disturbing Uie root In the least.

He digs a hole five feel square at top and five feet deep. Into this he throws some cobs, setting Are to them as they are thrown in until the hole is filled. Then the hole Is completely covered, banking earth against the edges of the cover, lu 12 hours uncover, and the cotsj will be found completely charred, so that tliey will easily crumble.

When the selection Is made for the spring planting, a few of some of the sweet varieties, ripening from the summer to the winter, should not be forgotten for this use. We may be gin with the early Sw eet Bough for the lirst. then the autumn Sweet Bough and the old Pumpkin Sweet, and for later use there are the Talmatl Sweet and the Wlnesnp, all productive sort and unexcelled for this use as well a for market.

A good way Is to hold the cream at a temperature of sixty degrees for twelve to fourteen hours after the first taste of add is apparcut, and then Judgment, formed from experience, will do the rest. The method for warming th cream for ripening b ail right, but It will be necessary to keep the tempera ture of the room at about the tempera ture It Is desired to keep the cream. For a starter, some ripened cream or buttermilk from the prevlotw churning Is often used to "slart" the ripening. A U'tter starter Is made by taking some skim milk from a healthy, fresh-milking cow, warm It up to 85 or tX degrees, and hold it at that tempreature till It become thick. Put Into the cream from three to five per cent, of this start er, and If the cream Is held at HO to vi degrees for twelve to fourteen hours it will be found sufficiently ripenetl.
