lightning1 jtnd LlRlitulno
Dr.Hinrichs, Director of the Iowa
"Weather Service, has brought for
ward considerable evidence showing
that, in thoc parts of Iowa where
lightning is.raost frequent, the corn
crops are best. Lightning is a1d fo
destroy certain poisonous matters in
the air, and is known to be con
cerned in the production of nitro
genous compounds, whiclt substance?
are necessary to the life and growth
of plauts. Thus the electricity- of
the air acts an Important part in the
affairs of nature; but in doing its
good work it incidentally docs a
good deal of harm. Iu ,lhe middle
ages when people. were more super
stitious than they are now, it was
thought that to ring church bells
would drive the lightning away,
audit is snid that many a poor sex
ton has lost m's life by-having the
lightning run" down thp'w'el bell
rope while he was ringing the bell.
Since the day of Ben. Franklin,
men, in order to protect ihumch us
and their property, have put up
lightning-rods. The rod is usually
either cupper or iron. Of the two
metals copper is the butler electric
conductor, but it is very costly;
while iron is very cheap. Then,
too, decaying animal mutters, which
frequently collect around the lightning-conductor,
and this substance dissolve the cop
per and occasionally euis the rod
entirely off near tho ground.
To make itlie best and cheapest
lightiiing-ronVoiie should get Ironi
a hardware store ordinary, round
bar; of iron three-fourths of an inch
iu diameter, and have a blacksmith
weld the pieces together, carefully
making the joints a large any othor
part of the rod. The rod may be
held in piace by iron staples. The
glas supports which are frequently
furnished, are unnecessary. The
elevated point, which' usually ac
companies the ordinary lightning
rod, is costly and, when haul Mr tick,
it ha been known to fuMj. It U
better to let the blaek.-mitii give the
rod a Mmplc, blunt point. A good
lightning-rod is, said to protect a
circie the diameter of which is lour
times the length of that pirt of ihe
rod winch projects above !fc build
ing. Th'ti, if the rod ri-es four fee!
above the roof, it is Mippoud to
protect a ? Jo cixteci lent iu diam
eter. The roil hould ex. cud (low u
to pcrinaupiifly damp earth or v
ter. If it is loo far down to porniu
mcut nioislurh.the rod may bend at
right angles a foot below the earth'-,
surface, and cvtend out horizontally
in an artificial drean. The horizon
tal part of the rod should be sur
rouuded bj' loose pieces of charcoal,
and the drain in which it is placed
Ehould receive the water from the
caves during thunder-storms. It
there is a stove with pipe projecting
above the roof, it should have ine
talic connection with damp earth,
for lightning is just as willing to
travel down the stove pipe a down
a rod arranged for its special convenience.

There is a good deU of uneasy
discontent manifested by tho Demo
cratic newspapers, over the presence
of Gen. Woodford, in Kemper Co.,
Miss., during the tarcc called a
"trial." of the murdeicrs of Judge
Chisholm and hi son and daughter.
They would like to know. ou

anyhow, since he does not appear
on the record as an attorney for Ihe
prosecution, and they c-ill conspic
uous attention to tht: Hipcruaturai
"quiet" that reigns iu and about the
court. L!ut they know very well
what Woodford is there for. and
that is what ails them. lie is there
to see. He is a witness of the events
ot that trial, wluwe woul cannot be
gaiu-aycd, and whose judgment of
the legal forms Ihere travestied cau
not he ridiculed or denied. He is
there to see that Mrs. Clii-Iioini and
her remaining son an; not Yazooed,
with nobody around to Ukc a hand
in her defence if poihle, or to ic
port the; circumstances ol the mur
der. While of cour-e the presence
of the General a an escort of the
eoiirageons widow and bereaved
mother, will have no effect upon the
verdict of a packed and perjured
jury, it will give the Democrats who
have already prepared their con
gratulations upon the "honorable
acquittal' of tiro Gulle3 and their
blood, "by the uubiaed verdict of
their peers, much disturbance ot
spirit. The General wili be the
reporter of that trial, whose account
will oilset all their turgid editorial-,
and counteract an oe.au of lving :i
to the character of the witnesses
and the audibility of the evidence.

tliey have abundant reason to lour

Among tho Mohegaus an Indian
named Zichary, was the heir to the
chieftainship. He was a brave man
and an excellent hunter, but as
drunken and worthless an Indian as

A Bllg; Apple 'E'ree.
Probably the largest apple tree in
tho United States is in heshm.
Conn. Its age can be traced by a
lam.ly tradition 119 veai-s at le.isr,
and it miy he 20 or 23 years older.
It is fit the present time of fym met
ric il shape, and the trunk is nearly
round, without a scaro" blemish on
il. There are eight large brunches;
live o! these hive bjen in the hibit
of bearing one year, anil the remain
ing three iho next; but when the
Centennial vear came the oid tree
which must have attained ihe prime
of ordinal; apple tree lite before
the nation v;i- born, expanded its
blossoms into a complete crown of
glory, and bore fruit all over the
tree. Mr. Ilotchkiss ha had a crop
of eighty-five bushels of truit iu
one year lioin the. five brances, and
hi predecessors have harvested a
crop or 193 bushels from the, same
five branches. The dimensions of
the tree arc: gii th, 14 feel C inches ;
height, CO feet ; and the spread ot
Ihu branches six rods.
The Nebraska Farmer says : "But
lew men are aware of the fact that
hay is very beneficial lor hogs, but
it is true nevertheless. Hogs need
some rough food U3 well as horses,
cittle, or the human race. To pre
pare it you should have a cutting
box (or hay cutterj, and the greener
the hay ihe better. Cut the hay as
short as oats, or shorter, and mix
with bran, shorts or middlings, and
feed as oilier food. Hogs soon leai it
to like it, and it so iked iu swill, as
other slop food, it is highly relished
by them. I" winter use for the'hogs
the same hay you loed to your
horses and you will find that, while
it Raves bran, short? or other lood,
it puts on flesh as' rapidly a-i any
thing that can be given them. The
use of hay can be commenced as
early as the gras will do to cut, and
when run through the cutting-box
it can be usd to advantage by i"in
ply soaking n fresh water tintjil it
sours. Try it."
