(experiment* In Mulching (itrdei
The Nebraska Experiment Station
has just issued Bulleton No. 80, entitled
“Experiments in Mulching Garden
Vegetables” It gives the result of
tests conducted at the Experiment
Station during the past three years,
showing the merits of straw mulch as
compared with cultivation in growing
the common garden vegatable.
It was found that straw mulches
give better results in normal or rather
dry years than in seasons of unusually
heavy rainfall and better results on
fairly high land than in very low
places. That mulches conserve soil
moisture as well as through cul
tivation was shown directly by de
terminations of soil moisture in the
mulched and cultivated plats of veg
atables and indirectly by the vigerous
growth of plants. Mulches cause
some vegatables to mature later, while
with others no delay was noticed.
Grasshoppers sometimes injure mul
ched vegatables more than cultivated
ones, but plant lice and chinch bugs are
apparently held in check by the mulch
es. Late spring and early fall frosts
injure mulched plants more "than cul
tivated ones, making it inadvisable to
mulch very tender vegatables that re
quire the full season for proper devol
opnient. barly spring vegatables,
which require only a few cultivations
can usually be grown more cheaply by
cultivation than by mulching. Fur
thermore, very early mulching before
the ground has become thoroughly
warm, is apt to retard the growth of
vegatables. Summer anil fall vegat
ables, on the other hand, which require
frequent cultivation throughout the
season, are grown more cheaply by
mulching than by cultivation. More
over the yield and quality of the veg
atables are often increased by mulch
Many vegatables connot be mulched
untill they havebecome well establish
ed and the weather lias become
warm, thus requiring some perlimin
ary cultivation. Such cultivation as
is commonly given farm gardens is
better for most vegatables in early
spring than mulching but mulching is
just as surely better in midsummer
than the neglect which is the common
thing in the farm gardens at that time
of year. The Experiment Station tests
have indeed shown mulching to be
better in many cases than the most
thorough cultivation through out the
summer. Results very favorable to
mulching have been secured with cab
bage, tommatoes, beans, cucumbers,
potatoes and sweet potatoes. In all
these cases the yeilds have been in
creased on the whole quite decidedly
by mulching and the required labor de
creased at the same time. Mulched
cabbage produced larger beads than
cultivated cabbage, and there were
less injury from rot. The vigor of tom
matoe plants was decreased by mulch
ing. but the yield of fruit increased.
The fruit was cleaner and less subject
to rot. Mulched cucumbers produced
perfect fruit during dry periods when
the fruit from the cultivated plants
were small and .imperfect. The qual
ity of potatoes has not been hurt by
mulching except in wet places.
Incase of transplanted onions,falsify
beets, carrots, parsnips, peas and mel
ons the results are not decidedly in
favor of either method, both the yields
and the required labor being about the
From the tests at the Experiment
Station, it is thought unwise to mulch
drilled onions, lettuce and sweet corn.
With drilled onions the stand of plants
is usually hurt by mulching. With
lettuce, it is also dificult to spread the
mulch without injury to the stand,
and the crop is harvested so early that
it is not worth while to mulch. With
sweet corn, the yields are about
the same in a normal season whether
mulched or cultivated, but this crop
requires so few cultivations that mulch
ing is hardly prolitable. In a wet sea
son mulching decreases the vield de

New Use for Paper.
Artificial teeth and "uppers” for
boots and shoes are among the new
uses to which paper is being put. A
substantial business firm In Boston is
considering a proposition to take up
the work of manufacturing paper hats.
Presents for Sultan of Morocco.

commissioner to the world's fair, has
Just bought the Moorish sultan a
brace of mules, a number of Angora
cats and goats, some fancy dogs and
a pacer and a span of fine carriage
horses, all of Missouri breeding. The
carriages horses were Buff and Blue,
well-known ribbon winners, and they
cost the sultan $2,000.
Strange Cases That Have Come
Under Physician’s Observation.
Medical records in the various hos
pitals of New York city show that
though quite forgetful of recent hap
penings, aged persons recall long
past events In correct order, and
even lie again amid scenes passed
utterly out of recollection before the
disease of senility appeared.
A woman of 70, delirious from pleu
ro-pneumonia, repeated poetry in Hin
dustani. It developed lated on that
up to the age of four she knew only
that language, but afterward had for
gotten that she ever spoke it. An
other peculiar case on record Is that
of an illiterate maid servant who
while in the delirium of fever, recited
Greek and Hebrew for hours, although
when in health she knew no word of
either language, her ravings being
due to the brain impressions left by
the readings heardd many years be
fore of a learned rabbi whose servant
she had been.
Force Is Applied to Many Useful Pur
poses in Three Days.
One of the practical uses of a mag
net, but to those immediately con
cerned a highly important use, is
that in which it is sometimes em
ployed to withdraw small pieces of
iron from such out of the way places
as the human eye. Another use of
the tractive force of magnetism on a
much larger scale was that to which
it was put by Edison in his magnetic
ore separator, in which the ore, pre
viously crushed to a fine powder, is
dropped down a chute past the poles
of powerful electro-magnets, in pass
ing which the iron particles of the
ore are deflected to one side, while
the nonmagnetic stone dust contin
ues undeflected down the chute. Still
another instance of the employment
of magnetism in a small way is that
in which a magnetized tack hammer
is used in the manufacture of straw
berry baskets on a large scale in con
junction with a mechanical device
which presents the tacks, one at a
time and head up, to the operative,
thereby greatly facilitating his work.
It is a far cry from lifting a tack
by means of magnetism to the lifting
of massive iron and steel plates
weighing four, six and twelve tons by
this same force, which is now being
done every workday in a number of
large steel works. Electro-magnet
ism, of course, is utilized, the form
of the magnet being usually rectangu
lar for this work and presenting a
flat surface to the plates lifted. The
magnets are suspended by chains
from cranes and pick up the plates
by simple contact and without the
loss of time consequent to the adjust
ment of chains and hooks in the older
method. It is also found that the
metal plates can be lifted by the
magnets while still so hot that it
would be Impossible for the men to
handle them.—Cassier's Magazine.
