TnE old story about the immense
fortune that is coming to American
heirs of "the historic Hj'dc estate" is
joing the rounds again. It is a
chestnut that should no longer serve
the uses even of sensational journal
ism. The report was investigated
some years ago by an American jurist
then abiding in England and found
to be fabulous. The alleged suit is
located "in Chancery," and it is said
that "the great Hyde Park is
on 2,000 acress of the land men
tioned." There is no longer a Court
of Chancery in England nor are
there any old estates or Chancery
moneys regarded by good authori
ties as susceptible of. recovery, while
Hyde Park has belonged to the Crown
for centuries. 4
The death of the Prince of Wales'
eldest son has given rise to a good
deal of discussion concerning the suc
cession to the throne, in the course of
which much has been said and not
quite correctly said as to heirs appar

has been spoken of as the "heir ap
parent" and the "heir presumptive"
when as a matter of fact he was
neither. If he had survived his
grandmother he would have been
heir apparent, that is he would have
had a title to the throne, whichcould
only be defeated by his death. lie

In a fit of drunken remorse John
L. Sullivan has once more signed the
pledge and donned a Francis Murphy
ribbon in token of his desire to re
form. His business mangers, who
persuaded the slugger to take this
step, were greatly surprised at his
readj' complaisance and arc hopeful
that the last reform will be per
manent. So we hope it may be.
Total abstinence from alcoholic liquor
for the rest of his life would go a long
way toward rehabilitating John Sulli
van in the esteem and confidence of
his friends. It might even "make a
man of him," though Some passing
glimpses of Sullivan sober and at his
best have almost destroyed that hope.
But Sullivan drunk is a disgraceful
and dangerous beast who has been
somewhat too long at large. Unless
he can keep sober now public safety
and decency will require that he be
either caged or killed. And the
sooner he is caged the less chance he
will run of being killed.
One may be forgiven for heresy in
matters of religion, but there seems
to be no excuse for the man who sug
gests that the blind devotion of the
courts to precedent and technicality
is becoming every year, in conse
quence of the growing mass of laws
and decisions, more calculated to de
feat the ends of justice. It is, of
course, rank anarchy to intimate that
no case is exactly like any other case
and that every case posesses individ
ual characteristics which entitle it to
'sepcrate treatment. If this were not
the condition of society the people
might find fault with the manner in
which justice has wobbled in the at
tempt to punish James W. Sjkes, of
Chicago. Mr. Sykes, it is admitted,
borrowed $100,000 by mortgaging
property which did not exist. For
this he was sentenced to the Peni
tentiary for three years. The Su
preme Court gave him a new trial on
a technicality and he was sentenced
to two years. Now the Supreme
Court has ordered him a third trial.
Is there any question about Sykes'
guilt? Certainly not. The Supreme
Court has simply made the discovery
that the Merchants' Loan and Trust
Company, which has been a party to
the suit, changed its name during the
progress of the trial!
A BIG RAT CATCHING.
How an Official Uulldlnc Was Cleaaed ol
Its Plague ofltodents.
A delusion which has lingered long
in the public mind is that "flreprooF'
buildings, if not actually fireproof,
were at least ratproof, but the idea is
no longer entertained at the corpora
tion Counsel's office, says the New
York News. The city's law depart
ment has offices in the Staats Zcitung
Building, but of late the rats have
got so thick as to be a standing ad
monition of temperance to Corpora
tion Counsel Clark's young assistants.
They ate Mr. Clark's soap, rum
maged through his library and nestled
in all the snug corners, where
they were least desired. It is
even alleged that one lady rat had
the termidity to establish her inter
esting family in the pocket of an old
office coat used by one of the j-oung
Blackstones in the office, and when
the owner of the coat imprudently
introduced his hand into the pocket
he got a sharp reminder that caused
him to be active for once. Things
got so bad that finally, Isaacsen, the
rat-catcher, was called in, and
some 300 powerful spring traps were
scattered about the building, and a
number of lithe, wiry ferrets were let
loose in the various rat holes. There
was a unanimous stampede of the rat
population, and a barrelful of dead
rodents was carried out By actual
count seventy-one rats were killed.

Fraud ia Diamonds.
An expert says that the "painting"
of diamonds is a trick known to all
dealers. To give yellowish Cape dia
monds the appearance of white
Brazilian or Indian diamonds, a man
has only to dip them in aniline blue.
The process resembles the blueing of
clothes by the washerwoman, and
was discovered about ten years ago.
Thb operation is so simple that not a
few Paris women . practice it They
buy cheap diamonds and touch them
up just before wearing them out, in
an aniline bath. The appearance of
the doctored diamonds deceives even
the experts at the first glance. The
layer of color wears off quickly, how
ever, and the fraud is then evident
The difference between Cape dia
monds, which is the basis of the
fraud, consists in. the- greater beauty
and clearness of the latter, as well as
in their-greater durability. Yellow

Yet a man ought to "know all he can

Some valuable facts arc brought
out in Bulletin 27 of the Cornell Uni
versity Experiment Station. Prof.
Roberts proposed to find out the
amount of loss in manure exposed as
the farmer usually exposes it. Here
is the result:
In tho experiments of ISW.horso manure
was saved from day to day until a pile of
two tons had been accumulated. This was
done from April 18 to 25. Cut wheat straw
was used plentifully as bedding, tho relative
amount of straw and manuro beiiiK HM'J
pounds excrement and GS1 pounds of straw.
Chemical annylsis showed that one ton of
this fresh m.muro contained nearly ten
pounds of nitrogen, seven and one-half
pounds of phosphoric acid, and eighteen
pounds of potash, making its value about
about S2.80.-if these constituents be valued
at the same rate as in commercial fertilizers.
The pile of manure thus made was put in
a place exposed to the weather, and where
tho drainage was so good that all the water
not absorbed by tho manure ran through
nnd ofT at once. It remained exposed from
April 25 to Sept. 22. at which time it was
carefully scraped up and weighed and a
sample taken for annylsis.
It was found that the -1. 000 had shrunk to
1,730 pounds during the six months, and
analysis showed hat tins 1.730 was less
valuable, pound for pound, than the original
lot of manure. It had not only lost br
leeching, but by heating or "lire fanging"
during periods of warm weather, and tho
value of tho pile of 4.000 pounds had shrunk
from $5.C0 to 92.25 a loss or C2 per cent.
In summing up the result of this experi
ment. Director Huberts says: "It seems
safe to say that under tho ordinary con
ditions of piling and exposure the lo:s of
fertilizing materials duriuir tho course of
the summer is not likely to be much below
50 per cent, of tho original value of "he

7 cents, that from a sheep at W. cents, and
that from a hog at y. cent for liberally fed,

Director Roberts is careful to explain that
those values will have to be modilled to
suit individual circumstances. What he
means is that if farmer's can afford to buy
commercial fertilizers at current prices,
then tho manures of tho farm are worth the

LIVE STOCK AND DAIRY.
Tho Ifest Ho; Kation.
The cheapest hog food we can pro
duce is clover, but the best single
food is corn. In the combination of
these two foods lie the best restdts.
Some say this necessitates exclusive
summer feeding. Not necessarily:
clover hay and clover ensilage form
part of a ration for ho?s in manv por
tions of the State in winter, and give
the best of satisfaction, especially
where fed to mature stock kept for
breeding purposes. Some parties re
port that they have kept brood sows
on good clover hay, with two pounds
of corn meal per day in addition, the
latter fed without preparation of any
kind. "While this style of feeding is
practiced quite extensively in the
eastern part of the State and by the
best farmers, I cannot speak of it
from experience, but consider it
worthy of trial.
But I can speak from experience in
feeding grain on clover pasture, and
I prefer corn and can honestly say it
is one of the best, if not the very bi'st,
way to produce pork at a low cost.
and it is somewhat strange, so few
farmers avail themselves of its advan
tages." At present prices pork conuot
be profitably produced on an all-grain
ration, and 3'ct it is equally true it
cannot be produced on an all-grass
ration. But the person who has
never tried feeding a limited amount
of grain to thrifty hogs on a good
clover pasture would be surprised at
the results. The practice of many
feeders of feeding milk to hogs on
grass in the absenccot grain ration, is
not to be recommended. "While young
pigs do not derive much benefit from
pastures except through the exercise
and contact with the soil, when the
weather is suitable it is the safest
place to keep them, as old pms with
their unhealthy surroundings and bad
atmosphere are particularly injurious.
"Winter feeding should be avoided as
much as possible, especially the prac
tice of keeping what are termed store
hogs, when not kept for breeding pur
poses Thomas Convey, in Farm and
LIVE STOCK AND DAIRY.
For Kicklr.gr Cows.
The Germantown Telegraph gives
the following directions for prevent
ing -cows from kicking: Tie your
cows short up in the stall, then take
a rope half an inch in diameter, tie it
securely around -the cow just kick of ;
the" foreshoulders, insert an inch J
stick, whiclrought to be two feet
long (an old buggy spoke does nicely,)
under the rope, give it a couple of
turns, the short end catching so as to
draw the rope very tight, and then
tuck the long end of the stick under
the foreleg. If the cow still offers to
kick, give the stick another circlo
turn., I have, seen vicious kickers
completely subdued in two minutes
by the simple twist of the rope. Tho
device is not patented, and is very ef
fective, as the cow soon learns that
every kick means an additional
twist of the rope and stick. Ofcoursc
the rope should be removed as soon
as possible after the milking is over,
as it is a very powerful persuader.
Good care of the dairy cows should
commence with the calves.
Ground oats mixed with the bran
and corn meal will be sure to increase
the How of milk. Have you oats?
"Do von the cows as you would have
them tlo for j'ou; your best for their
best is a fair exchange to which no
good cow will ever object.

A Vlin.ip Ilatrjr footer.
ft costs lot of money to" put in a
cold storage or cold air system in a
dairy or other building, and most
farmers cannot afford the outlay. We
herewith present the plan of a dairy
house that is used by Henry Fred
ricks of "Australia. The ncccsJJiry
thing is an abundance of cool water,
which may be found on most farms.
The principle of cooling is that wa
ter is forced bj' gravity or otherwise,
onto the roof of the building and the
evaporation takes up the heat. In
the illustration, AA is a pipe which
runs up and connects with a hori
zontal pipe on the ridge and others
parallel to it about half way down
tiie roof. These, savs Farm and
Home, arc perforated with small
holes and the water is forced through
them in small jets out on the roof.
It runs down and is caughi by the
gutters and then used for irrigation if
necessary. The building is double
roofed and virtually double walled by
having a closed veranda all around it.
It is a model dairy in every respect.
By this construction and the means
adapted to apply water, the building
can be cooled in a short time to any
desired temperature, even in the hot
test day in summer. The principle
is a very simple one and could be ap
plied, where water is plenty, to other
uses, such as cooling one's dwelling
house, stables or a building for keep
ing meats, fruits and vegetables.
HOUSEHOLD AND KITCHEN.
Advice for lirpoptlcs.
"A family doctor" gives the follow
ing advice to dyspeptics in Cassell's
Family Magazine: "Tiie greatest
mistakes of all overeating and eating
too often. So long as a person is
growing the system needs extra nour
ishment to enable nature to build up
the frame-work of the body. But
adults have need of food only to sup
ply the materials for new blood
to make up for the waste of tissue.
The waste of tissue is constantly go
ing on, to be sure, but only in direct
ratio to the work we do, whether
mental or bodily. Ir a greater quan
tity of food is taken into the system
than can be used up, it is more dele
terious than if we had taken so much
sand. The food so partaken of leaves
the stomach in an undigested form,
and never fails to work all kinds of
mischief, and instead of doing good
does injury, and weakens the bjdy
that it was intended to strengthen.
'The next most common mistake
that leads to this form of debility is
the much-to-be-regretted practice of
eating a poisonous mixture of foods
at the same meal. Tiie adjective
'poisonous may be thought a strong
one, but it is not too much so. If
people who suffer from nervousness
would only live plainly for a month
or two in all probability they would
find renewed health, and with it a
happiness and repose, to which they
have b-en strangers for many years
They would positively find themselves
growing young again instead of grow
ing older, for the simple reason that
they would not now be living so fast
or sj feverishly."
To Va'tii a Good Disinfectant.
All authorities, I believe, arc
agreed in giving the preference to
chlorine, which may be evolved by
mixing in a bottle two tablespoonfuls
of common salt, two tablespoonfulsof
fed lead and half a wineglassful of
strong oil of vitriol in a quart of
water. The bottle 'should be kept
cool, tightly stopped and in i dark

iron) one pound, dissolved in a gallon

agent, and the same may be sai.l of
the fuinesof sulphur(sulphurous acid)
for unoccupied rooms. Chloride of
lead solution is another potent fluid:
it is cheap, involves very little

and perfectly safe. Indeed, any of

that if it had not been for August
Flower I should have died before
this. Eight years ago I was taken
sick, and suffered as no one but
a dyspeptic can. I employed three

no benefit. They told me that I had
