Once a year, on Ash Weduesday, tha

inlt fish, and this salt fish is always
ood. Shrovo Tuesday is a kind of Lon
don fish shop festival, iu whioh tho
wbolo of the ''dpcoration" is salt cod
and half lentous. Tho cod aro salted in
the shops, boing split and. very lightly
but sufficiently salted, with a view to
impartjug flavor rather than to preserv
ing the tifeb. They aro then rolled looso.
ly and elegantly and a lomou laid upon
each. Tho origin of the loruon is diffi
cult to trace. Egg sauco, nud not lem

salt cod, the eggs beiug also a survival
pi the old Lenten list of fare. Possibly
the lemouB wpro originally part of the
surplus stock laid in for tho previous

The chief reason why alfalfa hay will
grow iu tho short grass country is that
it hns long roots. They have been kuowu
to striko 2G feet deep for moisturo. Tho
plant will not thrive, therefore in soil
flinr la tint: nnnti mid rlnor, A ti trliitil I
placo for its growth is along tho rivor
bottoms iu the western part of Kansas
land under which great lakes of "sheet
water," miles upon miles in extent, aro
found from 10 to 25 foot below tho sur
face. Tho roots of alfalfa readily push
down to tho water aud drink when they
ncod moisture, nud tho result is thnt
tho plant blossoms nud prospers and be
comes a never failing sourco of revenuo
to the man who cultivates it. Ou tho
rolling upluuds, whero there is scarcely
an average rainfall of 25 inches a year,
tho plaut will live and produce hay
nearly always. It makes good pnsturngo
uuder ordinary conditions thoro nud is
almost certain every year to produce a
lino crop of seed. All tho uplands uro
fertjjo enough, tho only troublo about
making uso of that fertility boing tho
lack of moistnro. Irrigation has uot yet
succeeded in bringing water in abun
dauco to the us.sistaiicu of tho tiller of
tho soil in this region, nud thereforo
only such a plaut cau live ns has deep
roots nud u pertinacity that even tho
hot winds of Knusns cannot shake.

Accordipg to tho best authorities, less
than ouo thonsitnd-millioulh part of the
sun's rays roaches the earth. It is for
tunate that this is so, ns any consider
able concentration of tho rays upon our
planet would speedily destroy it. Ao
cordiug to tho samo account, if nil of
the ico nt tho north polo wero so piled
that tbo heutof tho sun could be focused
on it, it would dissolve at tbu rato of
800,000,000 miles of solid ice per sec

Tbo beginuiug of the radiation of heat
from tho sun must date back something

.hu second largest bell of any kind in

bjing the largest, weighing 28,000
pounds. The dial of this Philadelphia
titan is twenty-five feet in diameter,

is twelve nnd the hour hand nine feet
in length. The machinery is arranged
so that th' clock will stiike every fif
