Yes, it is the nasty habit of pitching
out of the back door a paiiful and dip
ful now and then, of greasy water,
and a handful of parings and the geb.
eral waste of the kitchen, which
breeds totei and bitltous diseases. The
waste disappears for the most part in
the soil but that is the key to the mis
chief. Tha soil, gets full after a tiirie,
and ferments and the hot sun breeds
gases which surround and enter the
bouse. This is true not only of the
cheaper, poorer houses and careless
families, but well-to-do, intelligent
people have spots behind their houses
saturated with slops. In populous
towns no amount of supervision can
prevent a great deal of filthy evii;but
in the country towns slops should be
carried out to trees and poured in
small quantities here and there as a
fertilizer. " Trees will take up a large
quafatity of water, and be grateful for
it. There must be simply constant in
telligence in the disposal of waste.

without which Egypt would be as bar

I beiievethe proportion of blondes
is greater in the south than in tho
north," said Dr. G. Uarrity at the
Southern. It is popularly supposea
that the average southernor is a bru
nette. The writer of fiction has pic
tured them as black of eye, swarthy of
sirin and spare of figure. Such types
are the exception instead of the ruie
south of tho "Mason and Dixon mytho
logical line. The south is chiefly peo
pled by descendants of fair-haired
races. English, Scotch, Germans, etc.,
and they retain the physical charac
teristics of their ancestors. In cer
tain districts there are many descend
ants of the early Spaniards and immi
grants from the south of France, just
as in the north there are districts peo
pled almost exclusively by Danes and
Swedes; but generally speaking of the
southerners they are as fair skinued
and as much inclined to embonpoint as
their northern countrymen." St Loui?

THE NUWAB'S TREASURE
Whenever I went io Iho Jumoo
Gate and looked out upon the splendid
palace which the old nuwab Tana had
built. I felt liko leading a looting
parly through its gardens to the
underground treasure, and when I
walked through the ShoiUtnpara. or
Devil's Qmirler"' of tho city, and
caught sight of the malicious eyes
looking at mc from beneath bluek
brows. I felt ray blood rim cold, for I
believed that in U short timo wo
would feel tho knives of theso dark
faced demons in our vitals.
A few days before the outbreak at
Mcerttt where the Sepoys opened the
rebellion by murdering tho whito
Oilicers of the native regiment, tho
old nuwab died. I don't know what
hastened his death, but it was said
that a cobra bit him on the arm. and
sent him Out of tho world beforo ho
could add his name to the black
rascals who wcro about to render tho
names of Cawnpore and Lucknow tho
most famous as well as the darkest in
Ono afternoon Case, a daro devil
young fellow who had run away from
homo to take cr.ico with us in tho
Punjab, came to tUc unci proposed a
scheme which could have found birth
iu no other head than his. This was
a secret vi?i! io tho palace and a trip
to the underground region, provided
wo could reach it.
You don't proposo to steal any of
the treasure, do you Jack," I asked.
Not much; a. ring or so for tho
girls at home and mat bo a charm for
tny&clf when 1 shall have served out
my time something the treasurer of
tho nuwab' s household won't miss
If you don't want to go. Tom I'll get
Murray or Ilinlon."
1 told him that sooner than sec him
entrust his secret to thoio fellows 1
would join him. and wo concluded to
make the attempt that ory night.
We met no one, or olsc the paiacc
was do-erted. for it was rumored that
the scr rants had killed themselves
after tho death of their master, and
keeping on. we camo at last to a Uoor
set in the walL which Casey said was
the way to tho underground vaults.
in a short I me we were bect-nth
the palace of the nuwab. and I leaned
against a wall of solid .stone while my
companion inspected tho map with a
match in ono hand. Not a sound
came to our ears, and I felt unfunny,
for 1 knew that death would be our
portion if we wore teen by tho merci
This is the way." cried Casey.
Don't you se3 the strange trail on
tho floor here as if a serpent had worn
H binooth by crawling along the lings?
Ail wo have to do is to follow this
trail -Ind we will open our eyes to
the greatest treasure outside the royal
palaces of Delhi
Casey led rao on and on. down a
passage which seemed endless, but at
last we came to an open door so low
that wj had to stoop to enter the
chamber beyond. Here I straight
ened and looked at my comrade.
For tho life of mc I could not have
found my way out if I had been com
pelled to beat a retreat. Tho walls
were dry. oven hot. as if some unseen
fire raged beyond thorn, and when I
touched them 1 turned to C.iscy and
declared that wo were approaching
tho infernal regions, but ho laughed
and pushed on.
At last we stood in a chamber which
the torch of Casey revealed in a man
ner that drew a startled cry from my
throat Wo had reached the main
treasure house of the nuwab!
Gems irliltcro:! everywhere; they"
lay on the floor in indiscriminate con
fusion necklaces rings. Indian
brooches, daggers with jeweled hilts
and swords tipped with diamonds that
were enough to have illuminated a
great room. Hesides. there were
drinking-cups adorned with c'h'gies of
tho native gods and goJdesscs. 1'ra li
ma. Siva. Vishnu the whole cata
logue was there, and uot one seemed
missing, down to the smallest and
most insignificantdeity of tho dark
All at onco Casey's torch went out
and we wcro left in utter darkness.
The light was extinguished without
apparent cause, and I felt my heart
conic up in my throat as i thought of
some devil magic connected with tho
Casey struck another match, but it
would not burn, and in this way we
exhausted every ono we had. throwing
the'i on tho lloor with curses as wc
deplored our failure.
Wo must get back!' I cried.
There is some power at work hero
and wo will find ourselves in a trap
unless wc make tracks for tho outer
My God! the door is closed and
wc are already shut inl"
Those words went to my heart liko
a sentence of death. They fell from
Casey's lips and 1 started toward him
in tho dark, stumbling over a heap of
regalia only to find his words true
the door was shut and immovable!
Suddenly my hand came in contact
with something which sent a thrill of
horror through every nerve. I did
not have to think tho second' time to
guess what I had touched in that
btygian gloom for the contact was
quite enough. I had simply laid my
hand oil the body of a boa!
For somo timo I leaned against the
wall deprived of tho power of speech.
I woudered where tho serpent was
and how near to my body was his dis
gusting head, and the folds which can
crush a stag to doath in an instant
My God! I have touched a snako!
rang out the voice of Casey, and I
felt him reel against mo in the dark.
No wonder the old nuwao used to
say that h"s treasure couldn't be
looted. Ho has kept it guarded by
serpents and we are in their coils!''
Wo stood togother. our hands touch
ing and our hearts almost stilled by
1 terror. Shut up in si chamber with a
lot of boas waa terrible enough, and
when we knew that these monsters
could seo in tho dark and wero noise
less in their actions, our fears in
creased until wo were fairly paralyzed
with it '
We searched our pockets and I
finally fished up from ono corner tho
stub of a lucifer, which I handed to
ray companion, who look it with a
cry jf thankfulness.
I held ray breath as he drew it
along the wall and. at tho same time.
1 raised my cocked pistol eager to
send a bullet through the head of the
-juwab's treasure guard. Where
would we find iho serpent and how
j large waa he?
The little flame leaping up seemed
to shino like a star amid the gloom,
but in an instant it went out. like the
others had (lone. But that short
period of time was enough.
Looking down on us from a hold in
the wall, with onn-half of his glisten
ing and spotted body out, was a
serpent of tho constrictor' speciesi
large, terrible, and loathsome. The
forked tongue darted in and out with
in a few feet of our heads and tho
littlo eyes shone like diamonds in
their malignant gleo.
I saw that the snake was banded
with a gold band, which encircled the
neck' just back of tho head, thus fix
ing tho question of ownership, for
the old nuwab had banded overy
living thing in his palace; why not
the slimy guard of tho treasure?
When Casey saw tho serpent he
gave ono unearthly shriok and stag
gered down the walL leaving "me. I
stood there with weakened limbs and
cold sweat on my forehead. I felt
as it were, tho hot fetid breath of the
reptile on my cheeks, and when I
recoiled as an act of self-preservation
I thought I was falling down into
some bottomless pit.
Not a souud had followed Casey's
shriek. I felt for another match, in
tending in a moment of forced conr
ajre to send n. bullet through the men
acing head, but found nothing of the
kind. I crept down tho wall to a
corner, stooped and picked up some
thing at my feet only to drop it. for
it was a lizard, which stung mo cro I
let it go.
All at onco tho voice of Casey rang
out calling on God to help him.
'J he sounds fro.o every drop of
blood in my veins and I started over
lo where he was to quiot him. when I
recoiled, for I hoard tho breaking of
bones and knew that the serpent had
the poor fellow in tho fatal coils!
Desperation at last brought action
to my nerves and senses. 1 resolved
to face the terror, to tako the initia
tive and thus armed I crept down
the wall with ono hand thrown out
and iu the other one of tho short but
razor-edged and bediamonded knives
which 1 had picked up at my feet
Whero was the slayer of poor
Seeing nothing in that gloom. I
crept on and ou until all at onco my
hand came In contact with something
horribly smooth. It was tho body of
My hand could not span tho girth
of that terrible form, but I beliovod
from the sudden wriggling that I had
touched it no-ir tho head. In fact
when 1 moved my hand again it came
in contact with iho gold necklace, and
them, with tho fury of demon despair
and rovciigo. I hacked away with the
I felt that blade go through flesh
and bone with tho keenness of a kris.
With ray blood at fever heat and my
nostrils filled w th t';o suffocating
odor which emanated from tne ser
pent, I did not stop foi- a second, but
cut away for life.
I felt that everything depended on
what I was at and I worked that knifo
with all in m'ght. feeling tho folds
give way. an. I the gold band at last
fell to the lloor with a ring.
1 knew from the contortions of tho
hujo body that the hca.l was oil, and
stag -f ring back with a gasp I fell
ag. the wall
When I came back lo life I felt
some air on my cheek, and then a
streak of light which camo from a
certain spot showed mo the interior
of the place. I looked about mo an
instant and then shut my eyes.
In 0110 corner lay tho crushed body
of Casey, and across the lloor. roach
ing from wall to wall, stretched tho
spotted length of tho terror of the
nuwab's treasure-house, tho severed
head tarec feet from tho trunk.
My first thought was escape. Tho
light came from tho hole in tho wall
und I drew myself up to it, squeezed
my body through and dropped on tho
There I found a door leading I
knew not whither, but I did not stop
to ask. I threaded the corridor,
passed up to tho sunlight in the nu
wab's palace, and fell headlong, un
conscious on the street My escape
from the palace was miraculous and
for three months the surgeon" hsid a
mad patient but after the plundering
of tho palace by tho enraged soldiers
in return for the massacre of t awn
pore. I came b.tck to reason, and
again took my place in the- ranks.
Not for a long timo could I be in
duced to speak of the adventure -in
the subterranean chamber. The very
horror of it seemed lo congeal my
blood when I recurred to it and those
who afterward went down to the
chambers found no jewels at all but
on tho lloor of tho scene of our foolish
raid they discovered tho bones of
Casey and near by tho lon.r skeleton
of the nuwab's sentry.
It was supposed that thoso left in
chargo of the palace had removed the
treasures as other treasures were re
moved in a mysterious manner during
the rebellion, and that the rich ."ewels
and rogalia of the old nuwab wont to
adorn the palace of some young
I am quite sure that if all tho
treasure had been poured out at my
feet I would have taken nothing but
the knife which saved mo from the
serpent. In my iiaste to escape from
that demon chamber I carried off
nothing but the terror of it a terror
which will never leave ma and which
comes back with terrible distinctness
every anniversary of that night in the
nuwab's treasuro-house. National

In the pig we have iho prospective'
hog. and on tho good qualities of (bo
pig dopends fhe value of tho .hog.
The indifferent care given to so many
pigs is tbe great causo of tho poor
quality of hogs put on the market
every voar. With somo men tho
trrcat opportunity to mako choice
no-k has slipped away beforo they got
ready to commence wors. hen they
get ready, they have a poor stunted
shoat to wor with. In every day
work with a young pig the growth is so
regular as to oe nam to perceive, xct
ail caro.ul experiments prove tho fact
that the young pig makes the greatest
growth for amount of food as com
pared with the well grown and de
veloped hog. Judging by experience,
hogs always appeared to us to mako
tho fastest growth at from 175 to ".i0
pounds, and wo tvodld accept our
judgment based on observat on as
correct wore not tho well attested
experimental facts against U3. In the
light, of these I:iet3 the man that wants
the uio3t there Is in them will com
mence his care at the earliest possible
moment. He will have a care as to
the quality of tho animals coupled for
the production of the cxpeclo.1 pigs,
will have much care of tho dam whito
carrying tho pigs, will know that sho
has proper feed for her own perfect
health and tho development of the
If such foods as produco muscular
development arc in search and re
quiro effort and motion to aecuro them,
the development of tho sow will bo
such a3 to secure tho proper develop
ment o( tho young. The sow fatted
on rich grain is apt to produce weak
pigs while the sow kept on grass,
routs and the masts of tho forest
foods that sho inu-st gather by con
tinual motion will produce strong,
v'gorous pigs. Wc are too prone to
feed the foods that are Iho mo3t con
venient without giving due regard lo
the demands of nature Seldom is
due care taken to feed the pigs
through the dam, beforo or after
birth. The real worth of the dam
growing the pigs to weaning time is
not as a rule placed at as high an
es'.imato as it should be. The
sow is usually well fed till
tho pigs begin lo eat, then
the greater attention is given
to the pigs, as shown by tho
low condition the sows are often found
in. Some will answer that they aro
low iu flesh because they are good
Bucklers. This is not always true, it
is liard'y to be expected that sho wili
hold up to the weight immediately
after farrowing, yet it is not necessary
that she should become a walking
skeleton. Pigs well fed through the
dam will mako pork as fast, or
amount of food consumed, as they
wsll for somo time after weaning
when they consume all food for them
selves; conse jucntly it. stands to rea
son that the sow shotild be highly fed
while suckling, and with proper foods.
We havo ruined many valuablu litters
by feeding too high, by being til loo
big a hurry to have the pigs fat and
plump. Our most serious mistakes
were made by too high and rich feed
ing when tho pigs wero three or four
weeks o'.d. At that ago it was our
aim to have the pigs commence eat
ing, and we fed them r'c.i food in un
stinted quantities. Under this treat
ment the pigs would scour, acil in
our haste to have them moving on.
tho trouble would become chronic
and often result in the total loss of
There is a limit to this forcing mai
ler, and it is found in moving can
tiously at Ibis age. The pigs may
not please the eye so well in their
plumpness but they should in their
rangy appearance. Our custom now
is to let the pigs commence eating
corn as soon as they will, says the
Ohio Farmer, by being with the sow?
whi e they eat their ration of corn
th.own to them on the cob. Wo do
not feed corn meal, as wo have not a
mill on tho farm and the toil and the
expense of gong to the mill would
overbalance the benefit obtained. Wc
teach tho pigs to drink at threo to
four wcoks old by giving skim milk
or fresh milk, in troughs separate
from the r dams, in convenient places
where they will find it. From this
drink we soon havo them drink
slop. lor making slop wc
use brown and white mid
dlings, niicd in the proportions
found in the grain before grinding
Otertho required araouut of mid
dlinirs we pour the skim niiik wo may
have, along with tho kiloheu slops.
Just now wo have thirty-nine head of
pigs that arc well started to eating.
Fc this number we pour in the
trough one-half bushel of middlings,
and over this pour from four io six
gallons cf bkim milk and kichen
slops. The pigs are allowed at once
to cat what they want I" feeding
in this way Iherc is no risk from sour
slop as the kitchen tlops used accu
mulate between feeding times. We
ouly feed twice a day. It is conveni
ent to fee.1 in this way. as tho quan
tity of siop accumulated is su.'l'cient
and more, to meet the wants of the
pigi and it saves the trouble of mix
ing the slop in a tub or barrel.
When Ihcv require mare Ii-cd
than tho accumulated slop
moisten properly, we will have
to oring into use the sloplub and use
water, mixing at ono time for tho
no t When we have the feed mi ed
in the troughs, we throw on the feed
ing grounds a basket of car corn.
When we notico that tho pigs havo
oaten what slop they want and go to ,
the corn, wc turn the dams lo the !
troughs and let them cleanup. If we '
allowed the remnant to remain in the '
trough from one feeding lime to an- i
other, that the pigs cou.d go to it sit
will, wo would soon have an awful '
lot nilmg with scours and thumps: as
?i ' . hnvn no trmililp- 'Ihe nirs
have two full and satisfying rations .
per day. and aro always ready for I
their feed at feeding lime. Tho cas-
ual observer concludes that slop is
slop to the pig. regardless of
quality. The practical feeder
knows" by the observed thrif.iness i
of the pigs, that quality is what the
-trs must havo in slop. Stale and !

ing it sour the danger is too great in !
feeding sometimes too sour, it is t
well ior tne iceuer to get an tne in-

as to amount to feed aud the time and

The tops of potatoes after the crop
is dug contain much plant food, and
as they are mostly rotted down to
dust in fail and winter, this plant food
is easily available. They should not
be taKen to tho barnyard and com
posted with manure as was once ad
vised. Thoy rot readily enough with
out composting, and mixing with ma
