Hklll in lire Culture.
SlmoUciiv and eflielenoy are the
main requirements of the modern bee
hive. The hive produces no honey, but
It Is an Indispensable Implement in bee
culture. The best implement Is often
a failure In Inefficient hands, while an
efflclent operator can make a partial
success even with poor tools, but for a
first-class Job we look for a good me
chanic with the lxit tools. In the pro
duction of honey we must produce the
very finest goods at ihc lowest possible
This we can accomplish only by hav-
lug the best bees, the best hives and
Implements and handling the same In
telligently and economically. The man
who rides "hoblries" and run after
"fads" In ls-e culture will have a lean

Earljr 1'ntntoca In Garden.
It is the habit of most farmers U
plant a few potatoes for early us In
the garden. Hut this Is bad practice,
because often the potatoes are planted
on the same ground year after year,
and as the genus of disease live in the
soil over winter, the potatoes thud
grown are mot likely to be diseased.
Besides, where potatoes are grown 1U
succession, the soil Is filled with hardJ
shel potato bugs, which come up Just
about the time the potatoes do, and. will
often be found gnawing the potato
ahoota before It Is fairly oat of the
ground. It Is much better to plow a
clover sod somewhere on rich land for
the enrly potatoes, and reserve the gar
den for vegetables not so easily grown
by field culture.
Overworttlax Young Ho
While It Is well to break the colt to
drive while It Is a yearling, it should
not be allowed to do any work until It
is two years old, and then not be set to
any heavy pulling. Three years old. or,
better still, four years, Is a better time,
and the younger age only for Perche
rons, or some of the breeds of heavy
draught horses. With the active, ner

Brewer' Grains for Vlgm.
Wherever lirewers' grains can be
handily procured they will be found an
excellent food for pigs, and especially
for breeding sows. They are succulent
and at the same time highly nutritious
and very greatly Increase the milk flow,
especially if procured direct from tbs

Btone or Cement Floor for Dairies.
There Is no door for a dairy so good
as flagstone and cement between the
Joints. It will not absorb milk or cream
as board or brick will do, Is easily
cleaned, and Is always easily keH cool
In summer. The cost of a cement floor
Is not much, !f any, greater than that
from other material that will not give
half so good satisfaction. The dairy
door should be even with the surface of
the soil, or but very slightly above It.
Removal of Large Trcea.
American tree planters find no dlflb
culty in moving large trees. Trees up
j to three feet In circumference are fre-
nucntly moved, and generally with)
great success. The Gardeners' Chrom

Saved a Foe'rt Life.
"A most pathetic ns well as one of
the most heroic Iniideiits of the war of
the rebellion occurred on the first day
5f the battle of Gettysburg," said Judge
Thomas .1. M.u-key of South Carolina
a few evenings ago.
"I.ee never intended to give battle
at that point, where the Federals held
vantage ground, but was drawn into
the battle by n question of shoes. This
lust point may seem strange, but It Is,
nevertheless, true, rottlgrow's North
Carolina division was bare-footed, and
got permission to go Into the town of
Gettysburg to get a supply of shoes
from the stores. The soldier there
met a Federal force ami became en
gaged hotly. Kach side re-enforced
hetivlly, and the lxittle ended with a
decided advantage on the part of the
Confederates, who held the field.
"As General John B. Gordon's bri
gade was advancing, during the heat
of battle, he saw a Federal general ly
ing wounded ami apparently dyiug
right In the path. He dismounted, and,
raising the head of the wounded offi
cer, which lay in a hollow, placed n
knapsack benearfi It. He then gave
him some water and whisky to revive
blm. He Inquired who he was, ninl
" 'I am General Francis Barlow of

from tbe breast pocket of my coat,'
said Harlow, In a weakened voice.
"General Gordon did so.
" 'Now, said Barlow, 'I beg of you to
rend one to me, for they are from my
wife, and I wish her words to be the
last I shall hear,'
"While the shot and shell were plow
ing up the ground General Gordon read
n loud the letter of a noble, patriotic
woman to her dying husband. When
he had finished rending It General Bar
low requested blm to tear up all the
letters, as he did not wish them to be
profaned by tbe eyes of strangers.
"General Gordon bade hltu good-by
and hurried forward to overtake bis
command. He then sent a flag of truce
by messenger to General Meade at bis
headquarters. The messenger waa In
formed where Mrs. Barlow -might be
found. On receiving General Gordon's
note she hastened to her husband's aide
sn tbe field of battle under Ore. 8he
found blm, and, under careful nursing,
he recovered health and strength.
XJeaereJ Osrdea and tbe brave offl-
cor whom be succored on the Held of
Gwtysburg met again about fifteen
years after the date of the Incident I
have related. Gordan was then a Unl
tisi States Senator from Georgia and
Barlow was Attorney General of the
State of New York. At a dinner given
by Mr. I'otier, a Representative In Con
gress from New York, a gentleman was
introduced to Gordon as General Bar
low of New York City.
"Gordon scanned him closely and ob
served: " 'Was General Barlow, the brave
soldier of the Union army, who was
killed at Gettysburg, related to you,
"Though not with literal fidelity to
historic truth, yes, sir, very closely re
lated,' was the prompt reply. T am

Gettysburg, and I recognize In you the

"Fpon that announcement they gave
each other such cordial proofs of mu
tual esteem as served to Illustrate that
no bands clasp so warmly, at bast

How It Feels to lie (-hot.
I have known a number of meD who
have been wounded In battle, and I
have asked several sof them bow they
felt whim the ball went Into them. One
of these men was (Jen. Nelson Miles.
He told me that the flesh wounds that
he had received he had hardly felt un
til some time after, but that whenever
a ball struck a bone, the sensation was
terrible. At CliAncellorsvllle he re
ceived a wound which paralyzed him
from his waist downward, and for
weeks every one thought be would die.
Tbe ball struck his waist-belt plate and
deflected, going off into the body and
breaking the boue of bis hip. Nine
pieces of boue were taken out, but one
was left. At another time he was shot
in the neck, and a third time In the
shoulder, the bullet first striking the
edge of tbe blade of his sword and be
ing cut in two by the blade, one-half of
the ball going Into his shoulder.
Gen. Charles F. Manderson was a
mere Isiy when he went Into the army,
but he was one of the bravest of our
soldiers, and he rose to be a general
and participated In fifteen different
battles. He was terribly wounded at
Lovejoy's Station, thirty miles south
of Atlanta, his wound being very much
like that which caused the death of
President Garfield, in chatting with
Gen. M.indersou at Omaha the other
day, I nsked him how he felt when thu
bull struck him. He replied: "I felt
ns though a red hot cannon ball had
gone through me. Still it was only a
niinh; ball. It had struck my spine. As
I was shot 1 fell backward, my sword
dropped from my hand, and a moment
later a tingling sensation passed
through my body."
"Hid you faint?" I nsked.
"No; my feeling was that of great
weakness, but I retained consciousness
I tried to rise, but I could not do so. I
was, you know, In command of my
deiiilgrade, consisting of the Ninth
Kentucky, the Seventy-ninth Indiana
and tin; Nineteenth Ohio, and we were
charging the enemy's works. As I fell
some of the men ran out and bore me
back to the line. They stretched a
blanket between their guns, and upon
this carried me to the rear. There a
surgeon examined me, and upon ray
asking him if I was going to die, he
said that If the bullet had not gone
Into the Interior walls of the body I
might live, but that I would probably
be paralyzed. That night I was car
ried to Atlanta, and later on Jolted In a
hospital train to Chattanooga, and
thence to Philadelphia. My wound
heal'd, but I have been troubled with
It more or less ever since then. Sur
geon General Baxter once told me that
he believed If President Garfield's
wou:id had been left alone, as mine
was, he probably ulght have recover
ed." Frank G. Carpenter.
The Revised Command.
A ;uomlneiit professional man, who,
dining the civil war served In the same
battalion of artillery as Itev. T. K.
Fuuiit I.e Iioy, tells tbe following
"Fiitint I.e Boy stuttered then, Just
ns he does now, and he used to have
the deuce of a time sometimes giving
commands. I remember one occasion
when he was a lieutenant. He was in
command of a gun on the Mississippi,
niwir the mouth of the Red. A gunboat
was coming up stream and Faunt Le
Hoy ordered bis men to load and aim
tils gun, which was done. Then he
stood, sword In hand, his Jaw working
and his tongue uttering a long-drawn
'f-f f f-f-f-f-f.' He struggled manfully
to get out the word 'fire,' but In vain,
and everylsidy saw that In a few mo
ments the federal gunboat would be out
of range. No one knew what to do, buj
Fnunt Ie Itoy proved equal to the oc
casion. He stopped, and drew bis
breath, and then said: 'F-f f-1) Itl
Shoot the d d gun!' That, by the
way, was before Faunt Le Hoy studied
for the ministry." New Orleans Times
Hello of the War.
Hr. H. J. Allen, of White River Junc
tion, Vt., has a relic of the closing days
of tbe rebellion, a Testament, In which
a mlnle ball Is Imbedded. It was taken
from the left breast pocket of a rebel
soldier who was killed at Sailor's
Creek, Va., April 8, ISO,'), and who was
brought to the hospital of the Second
Division of the Sixth Corps that day.
The ball was flattened upon cither aids
and stopped on the seventh verse of tbt

The Old Farm Home.
An old farm house with meadows wide
And sweet with clover on every side
A bright-eyed boy who looks from out
The door with woodbine wreathed about,
And thinks this self-same thought all day:
"Ah, could I go far, far away
From this dull spot the world to see,
How happy, happy, happy,
How bappy should I lie!"
Amid the city's constant din,
A man who round the world has been
Amid the tumult of the throng
Keeps thinking, thinking all day long:
"Oh, could I only treud once more
The field path to the farm-house door
The old green meadows could I see,
How bappy, happy, happy,
How bappy would I be!"
Managing the Meadow.
Many meadows and pastures are de
stroyed by bad management. The
farmer is In too great a hurry to real
ize from his investment and does not
give the grass an opportunity to be
come fully established, cattle beiug
turned In to trample the Held at a sea
son when the ground Is wet, or graze
It closely when the laud may be In

the fall It starts off soon in spring aud
makes rapid growth, offering a strong
temptation for the use of stock, but it
Will be found better to allow the grass
to grow and mow it once for hay, so as
to Induce it to thicken and stool, but to
have It tra milled or cropped close by
jattle and sheep tbe first year is to do
.t more injury than can be regained

very Important, and the rule to follow
Is to allow the grass to become firmly
rooted and to make as much growth as
possible before mowing or pasturing it,

before It bears seed. As there will be
jilTerent kinds of grass, It will be well

short grass and may not remain unless

Leaf Mold from the Woods.
One of the best foundations for a bed
In which to grow flower plants can be
easily secured In most country districts
by going to the woods and finding in
hollows, or on the sides of old trunks
of trees, the mold that has accumu
lated by the rotting of forest leaves
that have fallen after blowing over
them. Only that which has been well
rotted will be worth taking home. Lust
year's leaves have not decomposed
enough yet. That which is found in
deep masses, where the soil is wet,
should be avoided, us the fact that the
land around it Is wet shows that It is
sour. Tbe very best of all Is found In
the deep hollows of stumps. Here It
lias had only the rain and snowfall of
winter to wet it, and there Is usually
an outlet beneath to carry off all sur
plus water. This leaf mold, though
black, is not so rich as It looks. It Is
besides too light to be used as soil with
out some heavier soil being mixed with
It. If some commercial' nitrogenous
compound Is used In the flower bed
made thus it will produce a wonderful
growth and bloom.
Locate the Lnderdraina.
Wherever an uuderdrain has been
laid, either a map of the ground should
be drawn, or such other memorandum
as will enable the owner of the land to
always know where It may bo found.
There Is nothing more provoking to the
buyer of a farm that Is only partly tin-
derdralned than his Inability to decide
Just where the old drains are located
and what size conduit they have. Of
course, the drain, if In working order,
will show within two or three rods
where tile or Rtone may be found. But
to reach It then requires much needless
digging, which could all have been
avoided if the man who laid the drain
had been careful to make a record of Its
Value of a Good Garden.
If you have never had a "rattling
good garden," suppose you make an ef
fort to have one. I know from experi
ence tbat a good garden is a great
money saver, as well as a system reno
vator. You can grow more good
"spring medicine" from a dollar's
worth of garden seeds than you can
get for $50 from a drug store. Some
people like to regard every thlug Ibof
eat In the way of vegetables as a rem
edy for this or that disease; a liver ren
ovator, a kidney stirrer, a lung balm,
or a stomach soother. I much prefer to
consider them as real good, palatable
food. Correspondence Rural World.

There was a time some fifteen years
ago or more when the common red clo
ver seemed doomed to destruction by
a worm which bred in it, and so ate
leaves and blossoms tbat tbe plant
could neither grow vigorously nor pro
duce seed. But we hear little of this
clover worm now, as it has generally
lieen destroyed by a parasite that preys
upon it. Alsike clover was not injured
by this enemy. Therefore for a few
years Alsike clover became quite popu
lar. But it dies out entirely after blos
soming and seeding in June of the sec
ond year after It was sown in early
spring. Alsike clover Is probably the
best accompaniment of timothy. If
both are sown together the first year,
only the Alsike can be mowed. But
after this clover Is off the timothy will
make a strong growth, and a cutting
of a ton of timothy per acre may be got
in the fall from laud that had already
borne an Alsike clover crop earlier in
Wurmtli from (ScrminatinK Seeds.
One of the aids to the preservation of
seeds sown In early spring is that the
swelling and bursting of the seed nec
essary to put out the germ Is al
ways accompanied with considerable
warmth. It Is accompanied by the
creation of a little carbonic acid gas,
which is never separated from organic
matter without at least partial decom
position. So soon as roots put forth
from the young plant they carry this
carbonic acid gas to their tips, and this
also partially decomposes the soil that
they come in contact with. When the
blade first appears above the surface
It calls on the root for moisture, and as
the root takes moisture from tbe soil
the latter is thereby made dryer. It Is
also warmed as well, for in early spring
the outatde air Is nearly always warm
er than tbe soil, and to dry It is also to
The t-lfe of Peach Treea.
It is an almost universal complaint
that peach trees do not last as long as
they used to do. We do not believe that
this is on account of the weather,, be
cause late winters certainly have not
been so destructive as many that oc
curred thirty to forty years ago. The
increase of borers and of fungous dis
eases, In which we Include the yellows,
are, we think, mainly responsible for
the change. By keeping borers out
and dressing heavily with potash ma
nures, peach treea may be made much
longer lived than they used to be. One
of the secrets of the longevity of old
time ieach trees whb that they were
never severely pruned, and never pro
duced heavy crops. The old-time 30
year-old peach trees had a tall trunk
with very little top.
There tire weeds that come earlier
than the crops, as the many varieties
of them are adapted to cold weather,
warm weather, dry seasons, rainy
spells, and, they spring up readily in
soils that contain the elements best
suitable for their existence. It requires
very little effort to destroy weeds when
they are coining up and beginning to
grow, but they are very persistent after
they become established. If the ground
is kept loose the weeds will not secure
a hold, as every working of the ground
with the harrow or cultivator destroys
thousands, of weed seeds that may be
just beginning to germinate.
To Prevent Knnt.
The best preventive of rust on Imple
ments is kerosene. If cleaned and
sponged once a week with kerosene ail
Iron and steel Implements will be less
liable to rust than when oils of any
kind are used. When stored away for
winter a mixture of one part rosin
melted In six parts of lard will be
found excellent. Early In spring, if
the Implements and tools are to be
cleaned, it may be done with gasoline,
and two or three hours after they may
be lightly sponged with kerosene.
Improved Dandelions for Gardens.
The dandelion is so popular an herb
for greens that it is well worth while
to cultivate it In the garden for that
use. There are special varieties which
have much larger and thicker leaves,
and these are sometimes planted In
greenhouses In winter so as to have
greens earlier for use In spring. One of
the advantages of the dandelion greens
Is that they have a tonic effect on the
stomach, and are very highly regarded
by many old fashioned people as 8
