THB IMMORTAL WASHINGTON A HEAVYWEICHT Was the Strongest Man of HU McIhhor heed His tBcceaa as a Wrestler A 8te7 of Bis Splendid Horsemanship Several Other Yarns. Welshed 210 Pound. Washington was a heavy-weight. Ho was six feet and one inch in height and weighed 210 pounds when in condition. It may bo added that ho was never out of it oxcept when ill. His weight never went above 210. Even his sedent ary life as President of tho United States, with its banquets, late hours and other luxuries not consistent with the rules of strict training, did not put him in bad trim physically. He was ono of thoee men who did not grow fat under any provocation. His fine physique was in a great measure a gift from na ture, a matter of inheritance and cir cumstance. His father was a very strong man, who used to shoot swans on tho Poto mac, holding his fowling-piece out at arm's length like a pistol. This weapon was so big and heavy that few men could firo it at all without a rest. George inherited not only the gun but the strength to uso it. His muscular powers were brought to perfection by plenty of outdoor exercise during his youth. As a school-boy of 15 he was well grown and the best all-round ath lete in those parts. His bulky frame did not handicap him in those sports re quiring pure agility; indeed, it was in these that he most notably excelled. He was tho local champion at running and at high brond jumping, as well as at wrestling and pitching the bar, a sport something like the modern game of put ting tho shot. Washington's legs were so strong and his footing so sure that he was invincible as a wrestler. There is no record that ho was ever thrown by anybody after he had gotten his growth. Tho length and strength of his legs gave him a great grip on a horse. Ho was a perfectly fearless rider. All he asked of a horse was that tho beast should bo able to go, and he laughed at the Idea that he could be thrown so long as the horse kept on his pins. To Illustrate his mastery of the horse, a story is told which Is much preferable In my opinion, to the cherry-treo fable, and containing tho same valuable moral lesson. "Washington's mother, who was fond of fine horses, had bought a spirited animal which had never been broken to the saddle. Some of her son's friends were at the house to dinner one day, and after the meal George proposed that they should bring forth the untamed steed and try to ride him. They did so, and several of tho company took short promenades along the lawn on the bridges of their noses In consequence of their inability to stick to tho beast's back. Georgo, however, succeeded in getting a sure scat, and then begun a battle royal. A slip and a bad fall then, and all of us to-day might be as much the subjects of Great Britain as any Fifth avenue dude, but fate had not so ordained. The long legs of the youthful rider gripped the horse like tho folds of an anaconda, and his iron hand restrained the animal's flight. It was a hard tusslo and was fought to a decisive finish, for the horse fell stone dead when he found out he was conquered. When George beheld at his feet the corpse of his mother's favorite horse he doubtless realized that victories may be dearly bought. It looked decidedly squally for the Father of his Country; but his cour age did not fall him. He went to his mother and told the whole story and was forgiven. I will not quote her words from the historian's r3age, because I know In my heart that sho said some thing much more touching and gram matical. I like this better than the cherry tree, because there Is more action in it; and because, by my experience, ittakes moro courage to face a mother's tearful re proof than a shingle, a father, and a scene where tho tears are furnished ex clusively by the erring. Charles Wilson Peale, the artist who made a fine portrait of Washington in 1772, tells a story which shows how good a man George was even when all out of training. He was 40 years old at this time, and probably hadn't pitched the bar In a long time, and yet ho made an exhibition of several young athletes who considered themselves pretty good at this sport, so popular in those days. These young men, of whom Peale was one, were stripped down for exercise, and had made some very good casts, when the Colonel (as Washington was then called) appeared among them. He was Invited to participate, and tho pegs which marked tho best records were shown him. With a smile that was doubtless childlike and bland Washlng- ton stepped to the line, took the bar, and proceeded to smash a large hole in the record. "No sooner did the heavy Iron bar feel the grasp of his mighty hand than it had lost the power of gravitation," says Peale, "and whizzed through the air, striking the ground far, far beyond our utmost limits." Washington hadn't so much as taken his coat off, and apparently had made very little effort. This was what made It so exasperating to be beaten by George. He nevei seemed to be half trying. "When you beat mv pitch, young gen tlemen," said he, "I'll try again." He had not yet been called upon to do so. He had a wonderfully disconcerting gaze, which would have helped him greatly in the ring if he had ever done much in that way. lam inclined to be lieve that this overpowering look saved his life many a time in hand-to-hand fights by unnerving his opponents. "Per haps this may be the reason he wasn't shot by a poacher one day on the shores of the Potomac by Mount Vernon. The story of this occurrence illustrates Washington's strength, his courage, and. WASHINGTON IN HUNTING COSTUME. GEORGE BREAKING TOE IRON-BAR RECORD. I should almost bo templed to 'say, his luck. Thia occurred after the' peace of '63, and before Washington was called to tho E residential chair. For some, time he ad been annoyed by depredations on his lands. One day he was walking in the woods near the bank of the river when ho heard a shot near by. He walked in the direction from which tho sound had come and soon saw a burly fellow with a gun. Tho General gave chase and came up with the poacher Just as he wrs about to shove off from tho ehofo in a little skiff. Washington Seined the boat with the grip from which nothing escaped. The poacher threw down his paddle, and seizing his gun, cocked it and aimed It directly at Washington's breast. Why he didn't carry out his design and make himself eternally infamous, I am unable to say. - 5 "" BENT THE OtTN-DARRSI. ACROSS II 18 KNEE AS IF IT HAD BEEN A JTWIO. Perhaps it was that "spirit protection. " 1 which the Indian prophet said would : preserve Washington; perhaps it was the catlike quickness of his movements. ' At any rate, tho weapon was wrenched l from tho poacher's hand; and Washing i ton. nuttina forth his cicantic strength in a way that must have made the ma rauder's hair turn gray, bent tho gun barrel across his knee as if it had been a twig. Then, having ruined the gun as a weapon, he seized tho poacher and chastised him as if ho had been a school boy. COMPOUND INTEREST IS GREAT dust Fut a Few Dollars Out That Way and Walt. Compound interest is a great thing in its' way. Not many of us aro able to draw any such thing, but most of us would if we could. This story was told by a man who knows something of the banking busi ness, the other day, and is strictly true. It related to a gentleman connected with the Equitable Life Assurance Company. As It was told by tho banking gentleman, he received in September, 1890, a letter from a brother in tho country. With it came a bank-book numbered 116807 of "The Bank for Savings" at 107 Chamber street, New York. There is no such bank there now, but still the recipient of tho letter followed the matter up. In the book there was a memorandum showing that an account had been opened with the Bank of Savings in 1849, for tho benefit of the writer of tho letter, by his father. In 1850 a second deposit was made, but even then the total deposit amounted to but $29. In his letter to the gentleman in the insurance line, the man for whom a bank account was opened in his boyhood, did not seem to think the bank-book was of much value. "I had forgotten all about it," ho wrote; "and even now can recall the fact in a vague way." He had found tho book in a pile of old papers in his garret. ."I write to ask," he went on, "if It Is possible that tho money was left to accu mulate and then forgotten, if (in that case) this little book would enable me to recover It ajid if the bank still exists and Is solvent?" The bank at 107 Chambers street was no longer In existence, but had grown into that healthy institution known as the Bleecker Street Bank, which is quito famous ia its way. This bank is very solvent, and it has veteran clerks. Checks and drafts worry the veteran bank clerk but little. He is used to them. So the man in tho insur ance business went up to the Bleecker Street Bank'nnd presented the old bank book with its small account that was opened in 1848. If he hoped to surprise the paying teller of that bank, ho mado a mistake. That gentleman mcrolj looked at one of the big books that arc a part of the general make-up of a bank. "That is all right, sir," he said. And a moment later he handed him a memo randum in red ink, on which the deposit of $29 was acknowledged, and below it was the statement: .?" July, 1890 Interest, $239.50 And this amount the teller paid over without a smile or frown. To him It was a natural proceeding. But there is a man up in tho country who thinks more of the matter. Ho it was who picked that bank-book out of a heap of waste paper, and he thinks inter est, especially compound interest, is a great thing. New York News. Strictly Business.

TAHE daily papers I have had a good deal to say, of late, about tic terrible risk farmers nin itt taking 1 11 01 f hirrM men, of whom they know next to nothing, into their fami lies. Some of them go so far as to say that the whole plan is wrong, and should give place to other arrange ments, says the Massachusetts Plow-' lian. On large farms this is often Tone. A separate table and lodging Louse is provided for the hired men, ind they have nomorcto do .with the family of their employcr.than do the operatives in a factory with the mill twne'r's family. On small farms, however, when lo rated at a distance from town life, the farmer must at present, and prob nbly'for some time to come, board his help in his house and sit at the head of the table in person. This custom has prevailed so long among our country people that it will not easily be changed. There can be no question what ever, that the average farmer is alto gether too careless about trying to find out what sort of a man he is welcoming to the hospitality of his home; a man who is to become a member of a rclincd and Christian family should not object to be re quired to show that he is worthy of the confidence that must needs be placed in him: and the farmer who does not take pains to learn whom he is hiring is neglecting his most evi dent duty to his family. Stockman. The Care or HMes. Farmers kill more or less beeves for home use or to sell in their nearest town or city as dressed beef. Lcef is low and it should be the aim of each one to get out of each animal all that is in it. To do this we must begin with the outside the hide. If a hide is taken off and properly cared for it will often bring a fifth or fourth as much as the dressed carcass. If taken off improperly and neglected it will bring very little. A hide ought to more than pay for taking it off. After the animal is dead turn it up on its back and run a sharp knife along the carcass as indicated by the dotted line in the first illustration. To do this thrust the knife, point foremost and edge up and run the slit the entire length of the carcass, from the chin over the breast in the line of the naval to the tail. Then slit the skin of eacli leg from the cleft of the foot; to the central slit. If these lines are followed the hide will be the right shape to care for when removed. The horns do not go with the hide nor docs the tail bone the tail and cars do. After the hide is removed spread it out as in the second illustration. Cut off all pieces of fat and flesh, (for if you are not an adept you will probably cither have some such pieces on the hide or some holes in it, and it is better to have meat than holes, as very slight juts, especially at or near the center makes a badly "damaged hide" and it likewise damages the price badly) and sprinkle the flesh side with salt. Fold the hide flesh side in and put where it will not freeze. If the above is too much "bother" it is very likely the hides you remove will be the shape of the one in the third illustration, and probably it will be "hung to dry" in the same po sition and the price you will get well it will be hard to get any price that will pay. Take care of the hides. Stockman. LIVE STOCK AND DAIRY. reading Hffs the Flrtt Three Months. To have good strong pigs, says W. A. Harris in Farm and Home, the lows should be in good flesh, but not Dver-fat, when the pigs are farrowed. After farrowing the sows must be liberally fed on corn; bran and ship ituff or whole oats may be used in Itcad of the bran and shipstuff. As aoon as the pigs begin to eat which frill be at about three weeks old, give them a trough where the sow cannot get at it, and put a little sweet milk in it. Give them but little at a time at first, as what is left will get sour and not be liked by very young pigs. As soon as the youngsters get to com ing regularly for their feed, stir iji some shipstuff and bran, with a little linseed meal, increasing the shipstuff and bran as the pigs require. Whole oats is an excellent feed, and pigs wilUearn to cat it while quite young. It is well to feed somo corn, say one third of their feed, "and,- if the weather is cold, one-half. To make good growth pigs should have about all they can cat; and if not more than one-third of the feed. is corn they will not get .too fat to grow well. Feed equal-quantities, by measure, of bran and shipstuff, made into a thick slop with milk or water, and feed it before it sours. Feed corn and oats whole and dry after the slop.

An Ohio subscriber, says tho Stock' man, is having lots of trouble with his churn or rather in his churn. Tho cream foams and produces no butter. He feeds his cows corn, fodder and clover hay and uses the cream at a temperature that used to bring good results still he gets no butter. See that the cows have free access to all the salt they want every day. If they have not had this privilege in the past give each an onnce the first day, then miss a day and give another ounce; miss a day and let them go to a trough or box and help themselves. Keep the milk above freezing, 55 de grees is a good temperature for win ter. Skim the milk in twenty-four or thirty-six hours and hold the cream not more than three days, thoroughly stirring the whole batch when new cream is added. Let it all be together twenty-four hours before churning at G2 to G5 degrees. Have the churn as warm as G2 degrees when the cream is put into it, and churn at a moderate rate not too slow, and the butter ought to come. Vagaries of Cranks. There is no vagary so wild, no foil so absurd concerning milk and butter milk but that some crank is ready to commend it and support his com mendation by the authority of science, says the Jersey llulletin. The latest that we have met with is the state ment that "most springs and wells arc impregnated with enough lime and sulphur to hurt the keeping qualities of butter." At least nine-tenths of the water used in butter-making in the United States is from springs or wells, and it is rather late in the rentury to begin talk about such water impairing the keeping quality of the butter. The fellow who wrote the quoted words has a case of water on the brain. Difference In Cost. Prof. Whitcher, of the Ucw Ilamp shire Experiment Station, says tho Dairy World, finds that the milk from his herd costs an average of 2.74 cents per quart on good feed. The lest cow produced itat a costof 1.95 cents, while the milk of the poorest cow cost 4.2( cents. On a richer ration the cost from the best cow was re duced to J. 32 cents, while with the ' same cow fed on a poor, innutritions ration, tne cost, went up to u. jo cents per quart. ORCHARD AND GARDEN. Settles; Out Troca. It was thought best twenty or thir ty years ago to set out trees or groves around orchards, but we have found out by experience that it was not best, for several reasons. First, they shade the orchard too much, and sec ond, they prevent, too much, the cir culation of air among the fruit trees;. This causes the fruit to grow small and scarce. Farmers should set oul trees of different kinds to shelter, nol their orchards, but their barnyards and their feeding lots, by so doing they could modify the temperature a few degrees and save some feed and prevent a great deal of suffering to stock. Again, farmers on the large prairies of the West and North should set out trees or groves for farm use, for firewood, posts and other purposes. If the people of this generation don't need it the people of the future generations will, for tim ber is getting scarce up North fa the pineries and other places. A few hints in regard to orchards: A young orchard should be plowed and worked a few tears and planted to potatoes or I other truck, then seeded to clover, never to timothy, ior mat makes tne ground too soddy and dry. None should use their orchards for pig pens and pasture too much, as it packs or hardens the ground too much around the roots and often causes the trees to die. Uetter build a chicken house in the orchard and let the chickens pick up the insects. fin Slow. Some of the best fruits we have arc those whose merits have been slowly recognized. It is a safe rule to be shy of much lauded new fruits. Even where the eulogium is justified so far as concerns one locality, the fruit may be good for nothing elsewhere. This is the case now with some excellent, well-known kinds, which fail in a few localities, though doing well gener ally. HOUSEHOLD AND KITCHEN. Hradar.hr. Dr. Haire says he has cured many victims of sick headache with the following simple prescription: When the first symptoms of a headache ap pear, take a tcaspooonful of lemon juice, clear, fifteen minutes before each meal, and the same dose at bed time. Follow this up until all symp toms are past, taking no other medi-. cities, and you will soon be freed' from your periodical nuisance. Sick headache is the signal of distress which the stomach puts up to inform-; us that there is an over alkaline con dition of Its fluids that it needs a natural acid to restore the battery tr its normal working condition. Lem onade without sugar1, plain lemor. juice and water, is a grateful and medicinal beverage for a person of bilious habit, allaying feverish ness and promoting sleep and appetite. Nervous headache is said to be in stantly relieved by shampooing the head with a quart of cold water in which a dessert spoonful of soda has been dissolved. Some Tested irc!p-s. Rice Dumpunos. Put your rice in a stew pan, -and pour on each cup-of rice one gill of milk; stand it near the flrc where it will keep hot but not boil. As soon as it has absorbed all the milk, pare your apples, take out the core, and put the rice around them instead of paste. Boil them until the apple is soft.
