Vegetation is growing very fast ;

great deal of difllculty in curing- these
lu my correspondence of last week I
stated that some of the oat fields were
being damaged by rust. I had not '
made a thorough Investigation , but had
taken only a casual glance at the oat '
fields in passing by ; upon a thorough
examination I found that Instead of r"st '
as I had supposed , the oats were blight
ed to some extent. This , too , Is only
on a now variety , the seed of which
came from northern Illinois.
A visitor to the submerged bottoms
of the Muddy and the two Nemcuu's
may bo able to form some frail Idea of
the great damage experienced by the
farmer owning or operating farms
along these streams. Thousands of
acres of the best land in the country
are thus rendered nearly useless. To '
see a crop of wheat , which Is nearly
matured , destroyed , or to see the wheat
floated uway In the raging torrents , Is
very discouraging to the faithful ir
of the soil , who , year after year , Is
on these bottoms , and almost as the
wheat Is ready for the thresher or whose
corn Is ready for the crib to see these !
crops , upon which we depend for ir
sustenance , destroyed lu this way Is
discouraging in the extreme. These
of you .who are opposed to drainage
think of what you are losing every year.
One good crop on such land as this
would pay your full assessment and
give you a good living in the mean
time. Drainage works on other streams ,
why not on these ? It will work here.
You opponents of drainage study It
and you will convince yourselves that
drainage is the only solution. Drain
your land properly and your land that
can not sell now for $ . " > 0 per aero will
bo the best land In the county and will
sell readily at from $100
to $150 per
acre and you land owners , who are not
now deriving benefit
any from your
land may live In luxury and ease on
your yearly rental and you will see
nourishing farms and happy farmers
where now you see a weary waste sj
land and care worn and weary farmer.

NEW WAY TO SERVE TONGUE.
Mushrooms Add Greatly to the Flavor
of the Meat.
Skewer a' largo , fresh beef tongue
and simmer four hours. Remove skin
and place in a steamer over a kettle
of hot water to keep hot while the
sauce is being prepared. Take two
tablespoonfuls butter and stir In a
sauce pan until a bright brown , then
stir In two tablespoonfuls flour "and
k"eep on stirring until It all bubbles
Now if made with stock or strong
soup the sauce will ho doubly dell
clous. If stock or soup Is not at hand
use some of the water In which the
tongue was boiled. Add ono pint of
the liquid If you use fresh mushrooms
two-th'lrds of a pint of the latter will
make up for the additional liquor
Pour in all the liquid at once and stir
till all holls. Put In salt and popper
to taste , a teaspoonful Worcester
shire sauce , a pinch of sugar , a dash of
celery salt and the mushrooms. If the
latter are fresh set the saucepan into
ouo of boiling water and lot all cool
for nt least 20 minutes ; if canned , It
will bo sufficient to bring all to the
boiling point. Pour over the tongue
enough to mask It well and put the
rest in a gravy bout
Servo on a hot platter garnished
with a border of small white celery
tips and slices of beet Can bo used
for luncheon. Have a sharp carving
RECIPE FOR SOAP JELLY.
Economical Way of Using Up the
Waste Scraps. .
Take as much soap as will bo re
quired and cut It down In shreds.
Put It Into a saucepan and just cover
It with hot or cold water. Allow the
soap to melt slowly over the flro until
It is quite clear and without lumps.
Do not fill the saucepan too full , as
soap is much inclined to boll over ,
The soap may bo put Into a Jar Instead -
stead of a saucepan and melted In
the oven. Any scraps of soap may be
used In this way. It is hotter to mak
soap jelly fresh each week , as it loses
its strength if kept many days.
Remember that the odor and taste
of soap will cling very tenaciously to
anything with which it comes In con
tact , so that the knlfo and board on
which it was cut , also the 'saucepan
ought to be kept for that purpose only.
To broil a chicken it should b
opened down its back. It is best to remove
move the breast bono , or , at least , t
divide it , If the chicken Is small , ante
to quarter it If the chicken is of fai ;
size , always taking care not to cut o :
tear the flesh. .The joints of wings ,
thighs and legs should bo broken an
their tendons clipped , except the bird
bo very young , when the Joints can b
severed at table. It is customary , If
broiled chicken bo of fair sire , to quarter
tor it by cutting across It each waj
with a knlfo that Is so sharp that th <
crisp skin Is not torn. The removal
of its bones before broiling a chlcke :
does not impair Its appearance , nor i
tholr absence noticeable , because the ;
are taken from the Inside and only th
outside is visible on the platter. I
carving scissors are used , they mak' '
a removal of the bones and a soverin ;
of the ligaments before cooking need
less ; that which is easiest for th
carver makes the speediest serving.
Ho Had an Eye Gene and Ho
Bought Remarkable Substitutes
"I've known a lot of freak collectors
In my time , " remarked Archer Way of
San Francisco , "but the queerest
whom I over know of was that which
caught Iko Smallcy. Iko and his
brother Amzl were earlles at Cripple
Crek , although they didn't line up
under the family name there. Ike was
the elder and fought his brother's bat
tles , likewise these of his brothor-ln-
Jaw , Barzlllu Tlnton of Now Jersey.
One night Ike took up a scrap that fell
0 Barzllla and loat his left eye.
"When I met him In San Francisco
, o was pretty lean In frame and pock-
t , but he managed to got to Alaska ,
, nd sent for Amzl and his brother-ln-
aw after making a stake. lie came
> ack three years ago with something
ess than a ton of dust , leaving Amzl
nd Dorzllla up there to share a half-
ntereat In a paying proposition , while
10 held them accountable for the other
"While up In the wilderness of that
old clime Iko was satisfied to go one
eye on things. When he got down to
San Francisco ho began to think about
appearances. Ho got to talking to me
about glass eyes , and I took him to an
optlst's shop and showed him a tray of
jyes In the window. Wo went in and
ho eye sharp matched his eye pretty
, vell and charged him $20.
"It was a dlfllcult job to find any-
.hlng to gee with Ike's good eye , for
t was a yellowy greeny lamp with a
fishy look to It ; but the optlst did his
worst and It wasn't his fault that the
clay bird had more expression In It
.nan the real pigeon. Ike spent an
hour looking In the glass and prac-
.Islng with It before he left the shop ,
and on the street he admitted to me
that the phony lamp had more charac
ter than the real looker.
"He wore It a week or two night
and day and sorter became absorbed
n it. Then he branched out. He'd
got the habit and just went in for
"He bought light blues , dark blues ,
browns , hazels , and all kinds of com
binations , all of which diverted atten
tion from his live eye. He used the
artificial eyes like an English duke
would his collection of scarf pins , and
soon had a different glass eye for
every day In the week and two or
three for Sunday.
"The field on the coast got too nar
row for him , and he came east and
looked up a Frenchman who makes
eyes In Chatham square and got him
to make some specialties for him. He
had original ideas , and the lamp ex
pert was willing to humor him at $50
"Iko startled me one night with a
topaz eye , only an Imitation gem , but
mighty fetching. Then he had an ame
thyst cyo and a turquoise eye , but
really this was only a starter. \
"Ho was looking over the shop windows
dews in Maiden lane one day , when ho
came across a crystal brooch scarfpiu
with a picture of a trout painted in it.
Ho wanted something just like that
for a glass eye , and made Inquiries
about how the work was done. He
managed to find out that an old
Frenchman In Newark painted such
things and chased him to his dugout.
"There he made a combination be
tween the glass eye maker and the
miniature man and sot up a now line
of work. He gave the artist a line of
subjects to bring out on the blanks
made by the Chatham square man and
had the colors baked into the glass.
"As artistic specimens they wore
great , but as facial ornaments they
were rather startling. The flrst time
1 saw Ike with one was In the cafe of
an uptown hotel. It jumped me when
I saw a pretty butterfly staring out
of his loft optic.
"I met him again that night to go
to a theater , and he called my atten
tion to the fact that he had changed
the ornament for the occasion. The
picture this time was a woman's head
"Wo went to Doston on the boat ,
and on the way to Fall River ho wore
an cyo with a picture of a steamboat
in it. He said It cost him $200. Next
morning he showed up with a locomo
tive head-on in his eye-socket
"That afternoon ho showed me what
he had In his collection. He had a vel
vet-lined leather case with 24 eyes In
It. There were flsh , game , flies , elks'
heads , steamships , yachts in full sail ,
bulldogs , insects , actresses , an auto
mobile , a monogram , and a lot of plain
eyes of different colors.
"Ike wasn't satisfied. Ho said that
the work wasn't fun enough for him
and that he was going abroad to see
what ho could do In Paris and Geneva.
Somebody had told him about a fa
mous Swiss miniature painter , and
somebody else had put him wise to a
firm In Paris that made splendid little
photographs on glass. Ho lot on tome
mo that ho was going to travel some
and have eyes made reproducing all
of the famous buildings and art works.
"He's got the collecting habit In
him bigger than a woodchuck and
Lord knows he's got unlimited money
to indulge himself in the fad. Ho car
ries a pocket magnifying mirror
around with him , so that ho can see
the results , and he makes three or
four changes of eyes a day. Ike Is
never so well pleased as when folks
notice his artistic eyes and talk to
him about them. "
Zlno cofflns are largely used in
Vienna , but the most expensive ones
are mode of copper , and cost as much
as ? 2GOO , while a bronze and copper
coffin recently made for a Russian
archduke cost over 15,000.
