Colomtiinn I'ark Carrlera Transport
Harden oo Heavy for Mulen.
The phrase "us strong as a horse' Is
generally used hj perlsibcally. but It is
no uncommon thing In somt ii.ndi for a
whole class of men to lo required to lie
stronger thau mules, or In any case to
carry burdens which those much-en-durlnif
animal would not be able to
sl.iggci- under. .Mr. 0. P. Yeatmau, in
an article in tlie ""nginecring Magazine
on the difliculiies of transportation lu
the tropics, tells some wonderful stories
of the strength and endurance of the
pack-carriers iu Colombia.
He says that on some roads tbere are
professional pack-carriers who make a
specially of carrying burdens too heavy
for mules. The traveler will sometimes
see what appears to be an animated
box. staggering slowly and painfully
down tlie mountain-side ahead of him.
As he draws nearer he becomes aware
that distressing grunts are proceeding
from that uncanny looking and mysteriously-moving
box. It has no visi
ble means of supiKrt, and when he
come close enough to read such famil
iar words as "Mason & Hamlin Organ
Company," or the name of some other
manufacturer of heavy articles, he
wonders w here the legs are that sup
port so weighty a burden.
Not until lie gels ahead of that per
ambulating I "ox does he see the short,
sturdy ligiire that is the nioMw power
of the machine. The man's muscles
are splendid specimens of development.
in his hand he carries a long, stout
cane, wlili w hich he steadies himself on
the slippery clay, and when fatigue
compels him to rest, he backs up to the
bank on ; lie side of the road, nettles the
loner end of his load against tlie higher
ground, and props up the upper end
w ith his -.tick.
Then lie Is free to slip off the plaited
luaguey-llbre bands from his shoulders
and forehead, and rid himself of his
Stranger still Is it to overtake a wom
an pack -currier, her skirts tucked up to
her knees, and lielow the skirts great
knots ami masses of corded muscle in
prominent view. It Is wise not to be
misled by appearances into commiser
ating tlie wrlnkbsl burden-bearer, and
kindly remarking that her load Is over
large for one of her years to carry.
Ten to one she will answer contemp
tuously, "oh, two hundred and twenty
isuinds Is nothing. You uliould see my
grandmother. She does carry heavy
loads. I am not full grown yet."
The traveler passes on with strange
vision of what au old woman In such
a land may be.
The maximum weight for a man to
carry is generally three hundred and
tnlrty pounds, and for a woman three
quarters of that weight. Two hundred
and forty-seven and a half ixmnds is no
trilie for a woman to cany up and

An Overlooked Crop.
A grt many suggestions have been
made) In favor of renovating the laud,
and to secure Improvement at a small
cowt by plowing under grwn crops. Of
the crops recommended may be men
tloni"d clover, cow pen, soja beans, rye
and even com and millet. Tbere Is an
other crop, however, which bos been
somewhat overlooked, and wWch can
be grown on almost any soil, and that
la turnips. The turnip crop need not he
planted until July, or even August,
and it grows rapidlj, being off the land
In a short time. On medium land from
thirty to forty loim can be grown, and
tlie tops are more, valuable tban the
bulbs for turning under. Tbe Kngltan
farmers grow turnips, allow sheep to
feed on them, and turn them uuder as
a raanurial crop. Turnip may be broad
casted on well-preMired land, ustag
plenty of seed, and will soon cover the
ground. Crops are grown In that way
In the Southern States, and the cost la
but little, as they require no cultivation

Seeding with Oata.
Oats are not reckoned a pood crop t
seed with either with clover or grass.
We have, however, bad fair succetw in
sowing clover seed with oats by having,
the land fall plowed, and merely culti
vated in the spring. Only a bushel and
a half to two bushels of oats should ls
sown with grass or clover seed, but this
sown early will start out and produeo
as large a crop as a bushel more of
oat- would bring if sow n a mouth later.
This is really the best way to grow tbo

amount of seed sown early stools more,
