T < c ( soii from tlic Drought.
Wherever the farmers come togeth
er , the trend of conversation naturally
turns toward the condition of thu corn
crop In the various nel > 'hhorlioods. All
mention the clover Held plnule.l to corn
as holiig their best prospect. In many
cases where barnyard manure had
been applied In the spring , the corn Is
very seriously damaged. New ground
planted to corn has been noticeably af
fected by drought , and in many cases
practically no grain will be secured
from such fields.
Such conditions , so plain to us now ,
should direct us to different plans for
raising au'othr crop. We all kuow
that a good clover Held will give a sat
isfactory account of Itself when condi
tions are favorable , and If it shows that
it Is better able than other ( lelds to
pass through dry weather , surely the
farmer should plan to have more clo
ver sod to turn under for corn. In
many cases the manure has done dam
age by causing the corn to dry up. It
lias not rotted in the soil. The coarse
stray has not allowed the laud to re
tain its normal amount of moisture.
Really the manure has not been on
the ground long enough to become thor
oughly Incorporated in the soil , and H
acts as a foreign body , cutting off the
supply of moisture. Had the manure
been applied to the growing clover , the
plover growth would have been much
"greater and the unwed manure would
have been converted into rich'earth by
the time the field had been planted to
corn. Where the clover lias been ma
nured the soil will hold even more
than the normal amount of moisture
when It Is broken up and planted to
I It Is little trouble to raise peed crops
when the seasons are especially favor
able. Then every farmer has grain to
sell , or fat stock to place on the mar
ket , and prices are likely to be very
low. The unfavorable year selects out
the Intelligent , thinking farmer and
gives him paying yields. He Is pre
pared to take stock not fat ted at a low
figure and Bell them In the market at
very high prices. To the intelligent ,
thinking farmer the off year in crops
Is not so disastrous after all. Indianap

At the Wisconsin Station they divid
ed fourteen cows Into two lots , as near
ly equal In condition as they could make
them , and one-half wore sent to pasture
according to the usual custom of farm
ers , though In a small field with plenty
of shade during the day. The others
were kept during the day In a comfort
able stable with screen doors and windows
dews , but allowed to feed In the pas
ture during night and the early morn
ing. It was found that these produced
20 per cent more butler than those in
the pasture during the day , as the lat
ter were kept moving all of the time by
the flies. On an Iowa dairy farm they
obtained more milk from cows kept in
a dark stable without screens during
the day and let out to graze at night ,
than they did from'thoso in pasture all
day and in stable at night. Similar re
sults have been obtained by the sprayIng -
Ing of cattle with something to repel
the tiles , but most of these rupellants
have an odor that fills the air In the
stable and may injure the milk or but
ter , If not very carefully used. There's
nothing better tliau a sponge or damp
cloth Just inadi' moist with kerosene ,
and wiped lightly over the top of the
head , along the back and over the legs ,
using It everv morning just after milk-
Ing. The odor evaporates before the
next milking , If not used too freely.
The Fnrincr'i HOB.
The farmer's hog should be of me
dium length , deep body , broad bai-k ,
etralght sides and short legs , also to
stand well up on feet , said .1. C.
Wright before the Io\vtr Swine Breed
ers' Association. He should have a
quiet disposition and be Inclined to be a
little la/.y , so after being fed he will
lie down and get the good of his corn.
He should also have a neat head , well
net on the body , so that when fat and
butchered there will be as little waste
us possible. In producing such a hog
It Is very necessary to pay particular
attention to the parent stock. In the
first place , the sows should bo well bred
and a little lengthy , with good , well-de
veloped bodies , good feet' and limbs
mid should also bo good sticklers. The
farmer wants a hog that will mature
early , say at sis , eight or ten months ,
and average In weight from -00 to 350
The Corn Crop.
It Is claimed that tlu > United States
produces about four-fifths of the corn
crop In the world , or In 1000 It produced
2,106,102,610 bushels out of the total
In the entire corn-growing countries ,
which was only 2,031,378,145 bushels.
If there Is any undcr-estlmate In the
amount It Is more likely to be In the
United States , where also more corn IH
consumed In feeding to animals than
ia Uie otlitr countries , and where the
- > * Q'- * * -
census onumi'rator says that the re
ports of the amounts grown and used
upon thu farms will scarcely account
for the meats that are reported and
sold. Austria Hungary reports only
142.000,000 bushels and Mexico but
111,704 , ! > :18 : buMiels , while the seven
other countries reporting vary from SO.-
000,000 down to 20,000,000 bushels ,
and only aggregate 202,0 < X,000 bushels.
All of them do not produce as much
corn as the Static of Illinois and Iowa.
Austria Hungary , though .second in thu
list of the producing countries , pro
duced less In MM ) than the State of In
diana , and U'issia less than .Michigan.
And the capabilities of these States
have not been reached yet , but we can
add another billion or two of bushels
to our yearly crop If It is needed to fur

Cure of Horses.
A few horses do not get as much feed
as they need to enable them to do their
work properly , but there are more , at
least , In this part of the country that
are overfed , especially where fvcdlug Is
Intrusted to tliobe who do not have to
pay for the food given. In their desire
to have the animals look plump and
sleek they give more than can be well
dlgesttMl. and sometimes defeat their
own Intentions by causing such indiges
tion that the horse grows lean , If he' is
not wise enough to refuse to eat all
that Is placed Ix-fore him. Nor are the
owners always guiltless In this matter.
Farmers especially are apt to feed too
much hay to the horse , giving thirty to
forty pounds In twenty-four hours ,
when from twelve to twenty pounds Is
enough for horses of almost any weight
when there Is enough of grain given.
And many will not reduce either hay or
grain rations when there Is a week or
two of idleness. This is a mistake , but
not as bad as that of largely Increasing
the grain feed when there Is an extra
amount of work to lie done , or a long
drive to bo made. The veterinary sur
geons say that most of the cases they
are called upon to prescribe for are the
results of ovtrfeedlng , or feeding after
hard work. American Cultivator.

That humus Is necessary in the soil
and thaf the plowing under of non-ni
trogenous plant growth Is valuable will
not be questioned , but the farmers who
have been successful with this plan
are warned against the Itlen which Is
becoming somewhat general that tnli
course will make manuring of any kind
unnecessary. It U true that there may
be conditions where the use of fertiliz
ers seems unnecessary In addition to
the plan of renovation referred to , but
such conditions are not general. The
fanner who attempts to grow the usu
al rotation of crops and relies wholly
upon the fertility lie Is able to get from
the soil solely by the use of nitrogen
ous plants or by the use of humus
making plants , will tlnd his crops
growing smaller and smaller as th
years go by.

Is forty years since the shedding
nT thu Ilrsi blood on hostile soil in
Ihe Civil War. The victim was Kl-
mer H. Ellsworth , Colonel commanding
the Kli'Vi'nth New York Volunteers ,
known as the Fire Xouavcs. Colonel
Ellsworth was killed by James Jackson ,
proprietor of the Marshall House , ut
Alexandria , Vu. Jnekson , In turn , was
killed by Frank H. Hrownell , a corporal ,
who had assisted Ellsworth in lowering
a Confederate Hag , which had been
hoisted above the hotel.
IJrownell rose to the rank of captain.
On his retirement he went to St. Louis
and lived there several years. Hu was
the only intin who knew the truth about
the killing of Colonel Ellsworth. Dur
ing his life ho would never tell the
story. Shortly before his death In
Washington , 1) . 0. , on March Ifi , JS)1 ! ,
he wrote an account of the tragedy.
This paper he left as a legacy to his
brother , V. I * . Hrownell , now a promi
nent citizen of St. Louis , through whose
courtesy It Is now published. In sub
stance It reads thus :
On May 3 , 1801 , Ellsworth ascer
tained that the Colonels of the different
regiments .stationed about \Vashlugtou
had received orders to hold their com
mands to move at midnight. Ellsworth ,
not having received any such order ,
went to thu President and appealed to
him that he might take part In the
movement , and through his personal In
fluence with the President he was told
he might go on one condition , namely ,
that If any breach of discipline or mis
behavior occurred by his regiment It
would be mustered out of the service.
Up to the day before the regiment left
for Alexandria It had never received
anything from the general government
except rations and camp equipage. New
arms , overcoats , etc. , promised by the
authorities before the regiment left
New York never came , all of which
caused Ellsworth to be extremely anx
ious as to the conduct of his regiment ,
upon which his future so largely de
The arms with which we were
equipped were not received until the
day before we occupied Alexandria , the
Sharp rifles having been exchanged for
Harper's Ferry rifled muskets , with the
exception of Company A , to which I be
longed , which received Harper's Ferry
rifles with saber bayonet but without
bayonet scabbards.
I shall n wer forget the remarks made
by him to the men the night before the
movement and his death. .The regi
ment was formed in column of divisions
massed. He said :
"Hoys , yesterday I understood that a
movement was to be madu against Al
exandria. I went to see Ceiieriil Mans
field and told him 1 would consider It
a personal affront If we were not al
lowed the right of the line , as It is our
due as the first regiment of volunteers
sworn in for the war. All I can say Is ,
prepare yourselves for a nice little sail ,
and at the end perhaps a skirmish.
" ( Jo to your tents and lie down until
2 o'clock , when the boats will come for
us , and we will go forward to victory or
death. When we reach the place of des
tination act like men ; do pothlng to
shame the regiment. Show the enemy
that you are men as well as soldiers ,
and that you will treat them with kind
ness , and , no matter what may happen ,
not a shot must be , tired without or
ders. Now go to your tents and do as I
tell you. "
So far as I know these orders were
not violated except In the single In
stance following his death.
The regiment embarked about 2
o'clock and arrived at Alexandria be
tween 4 and 5 o'clock in the morn
The troops moved against Alexandria
in three columns by thu aqueduct un
der command of General Sanford , by
the long bridge under command of
Colonel Wilcox and by steamer under
command of Colonel Ellsworth. Ells
worth was to approach by the river
front and Wllcox by the Washington
pike. They were to cut oil' telegraphic
and railroad connection with the In
Ellsworth landed his regiment with
great rapidity. The regiment was
formed on the wharf when Ellsworth
came by the right of the line , .starting
uptown. There were with him Mr. Win-
ser , of the New York Times , Mr.
House , of the New York Tribune , and
Chaplain Dodge. As they passed the
right line someone of them suggest
ed that a guard be taken. Ellsworth
turned and said : "First squad , follow
me. "
The squad , consisting of Sergeant
I Marshall , two corporals , of which I was
one. and two privates , fell In behind ,
[ and in that order we went up Cameron
street on the double quick.
We went three blocks up Cameron
street. I thought , and still think Ells-
Mnrlli was on the way to the tele
graph olllci1 to M'liil word he hud land-
t ed. Here we iiirned. south on Itoyal
j street. One square brought us to King
si reel , and as we turned the corner to
go west wo came In sight of the Mar
shall house. Just a square ahead , with
the Confederate Hag tlylng.
Ellsworth turned abruptly to thu Ser
geant and said : "Marshall , go back
and tell Captain Co.v le to bring his com
pany up hero HH MIOII as possible.
This wtiH the only thing Ellsworth
said to show that he had noticed the
( lag.
He Kept up King street and did not
turn noivsa when ho ouitia opposite the
.Marshall house. 1 supposed ho was go- '
, lug to let Captain Coyle tale euro of
the Hag. Ellsworth jumped over the !
gutter to cross the street ill .re the ho
tel , \\hcii he suddenly halted. lie said
nothing , but looked back at the ling , )
IVrlwp-j It occurred to him that the ,
sight of that flag might enrage the men
and lead to the very thins ; he had prom-
Isetl to prevent.
A Her a moment's thought he went
across the street and entered the olllco
of Ilu > hotel. We followed , nothing be
ing sild. There was a man at the
counter. Ellsworth nvked If he wan
the proprietor , lie said "no. "
EHorth went upstairs without an
other word. We followed him up two
illgh.s and then up a third Might to thu
atlli. The stairs turned and had u
Iniiillng midway of each flight. In thu
uttiiwe found the , halyards to the flag-
stall1 , and Ellsworth pulled down the
Hag. The only thing that was said at
the time was by Ellsworth. Some one
started to cut oft" a piece , and Ellsworth
Bald : "Stop ; don't do that. This goes
to New York. "
Hlght here let me say that 1 firmly
believe Ellsworth went up to get that
flag in the Interest of peace and good
order. He was moved , 1 believe , by
the thought that If seen by his men It
might he taken as a provocation to do
lawless acts. It was not bravado that
Inspired him : the act was prompted by
his earnest desire to bu prudent and
avoid trouble.
His action In sending eSrgcant Mar
shall back for , Captain Coyle and Com
pany A always seemed to me convinc
ing proof that he did not leave thu
regiment for the purpose of taking the
Hag , as has often been asserted by
some , for if that was his Intention why
did he Immediately upon coming In
sight of It send for aid ? Why did he
not go in the most direct line to the
house instead of doing as he dldV
We started down the stairs from the
attic to thu third floor. I was leading.
Ellsworth was just behind , In the act
of rolling up the flag Into a small
bundle. As I came upon the first landIng -
Ing , which turned with half a dozen
steps before leading to the floor , there
stood a man with a double-barreled gun
resting on the banisters nnd thu muz
zle point ing at my breast.
VM to this time everything had been
so quiet we were not anticipating
trouble. Hy the instinct of sulf-prcscr-
ration more than anything else I
jumped , and as I did so 1 threw down
the barrel of my gun on his , and both
guns slid down the banister until they
reached the turn and then fell apart.
My Jump cleared the steps from the
lauding to the floor , but before 1 could
gain my equilibrium the man had
thrown up his gun Into position , and
just as Ellsworth came Into view on the
landing he fired. Then he whirled and
leveled at me. As lie did so I llred and
sprang forward with my bayonet. That
motion saved my life , for the heavy
charge of buckshot went just over my
'head and through the door behind me.
The nnizKlu of the gun was within
three or four fecit of Ellsworth's breast.
The charge of buckshot struck him Just
above the heart. With the single ex
clamation , "My God ! " he fell forward
from the landing to the floor.
Jackson , who killed Ellsworth , was
shot In the corner of his left eye
through the btaln. The bayonet pierced
his heart. He fell backward to the land
ing midway between the second and
third floors. From the beginning to the
end he never spoke.
I can only Account for my escape by
the supposition that when I came Into
view on the landing Jackson wavered
for a moment. That gave me a chance
to leap to the floor and saved my life.
I do not think he knew who had gone
up to take down the flag. He had been
celebrating the pasbtigc of the ordinance
of secession and had gone to bad drunk
at 2 o'clock In the morning.
There had been throats by citizens to
take down the Hag , and Jackson had
sworn to defend It. lie had been awak
ened hurriedly by somebody and told
that we had gone up to get the flag.
Without waiting to dress , for ho wore
only his shirt and pantaloons , he nul/.ed
his gun and took his place on the land-
A strange Incident happened at the
moment of Ellsworth's death. Upon
the breast of his vent he wore the badge
of the Haltlmore City Guards , which
had been given him while In that city

for ourselves alone , but for our coun
try. " It was an Inch In diameter. The
charge from Jackson's gun carried this
badge Into his breast , and parts of It
were found mingled with the buckshot
In his spine.
Concealing his death from the com
mand for fear of terrible vengeance on
the whole city , the body was borne
back to the navy yard at Washing

place in the euglne house whore the
body had been taken for the purpose
