A Woaderfal Cap.
Baron Charles de Rothschild, of
Frankfort-on-the-Main, purchased, not
long ago, for the enormous sum of
600.000 francs ($160,000) a surer-gilt
cup bv the celebrated Jammitzer, which
is said to be n marvelous work of art.
This sum, according to the Chronigue
des Aries, is, as far as it knows, the
largest price ever paid in modern times
for a single object of art. The work is
the oentcr piece of a table service. The
foot is composed of a rock entirely cov
ered with grasses and field flowers, on
which desport themselves beetles, little
lizards, locusts and snails, ftom this
rises the figure of a woman, emblemat
izing thcearth, and bending in eloquent
pose as she supports on her head and
her hands a tall chalice, decorated with
grotesques and topped by a cover, which
terminates in a vase in the form of a
baluster, from which springs a bunch of
leaves aud flowers. The silver gilt of
which the cup is made has ornaments in
opaque and translucent enamels. The
gbldsmithcry of the sixteenth century is
said to offer nothing moro finished in
execution, and which, though open to
criticism, possibly forms the standpoints
loth of taste and style, has its weak
nesses counterbalanced by the wonder
ful perfection of all its details.
The story of Baron Rothschild's ac
quisition of the work is quite curious.
It formed part of the estate of the late
Nuremberg banker, Merkel, who died in
1873, and -whose heirs, by common ac
cord, agreed to loan it, together with
Albert Durer's portrait of Holchucher,
to the German Museum at Nuremberg,
of which Jammitzer's clirf d'oeuvre be
came one of the greatest treasures. In
deed the public, during the years it was
on exhibition, thought it belonged to
the museum. It was so arranged that
the work could not be taken away with
out joint consent of the heirs and a Min
isterial authorization. Some months
ago the celebrated art work disappeared
from the galleries, to the great astonish
ment and consternation cf the Nurem
bergers and the country in general.
After a while it leaked out that a Frank
fort dealer in art objects, the agent of
Baron Rothschild, had appeared with
the necsssary papers from the family
and the Director of the Museum hod
been obliged to deliver to him the cup.
The whole affair was conducted with
great secrecy, and it is certain that had
it lcen known that the object was for
sale the Directors of the Nuremberg
Museum, as well as many oth
ers, would have competed with the pres
ent purchaser for its ossession.

that roots contain time E0 per cent of

''They be vcrra fillin'," and afford a
succulence that proves most beneficial
to heavily fed steers or ciws. Years
ago it was almost impossible to raise

machinery has been so much
improved that any farmer pro

Feems at hand, indeed, when roots
will le crown upon every stock-raising
farm of the west, the sheep breeders be
ing the first to set the example. No won
der that the sheep men are commenc-
ng to raise roots annually, for they
have found that this feeding material
has more than anything else to do
with the production of that Fp'cmlid
quality and finish for which British
sheep are celebrated the world over.
Mangolds arc the most important roots
to these men, as they keep well during
winter.improving wit h age a nd f u m ish
mg the needed succulence for sheep at
the time most required. Mr. William
(ibson of Delaware, Canada, writes iu
the Country Gentleman that he has
had good old roots in his cellar when
storing the new crop. and speaks in the
very highest possible terms of the
mangold for sheep to be used in sum
mer and especially when the grass be
gins to dry up. As to other roots, the
position of the Farmers' Review is
well known, having very earnestly ad
vocated the raising of etrrots on every
farm for the winter feeding of horsps.
We are also of the opinion that tur
nips as an adjunct to other food, such
as corn, for the finishing off of prime
fat steers, pay well for the trouble of
raising them as they give a polish and
quality to beef that even oil cake will
not produce. Now a word or two as
to cultivation. We believe the most
common cause of failure iu the pro
ductior of a good crop of roots
is too early sowing aud secondlj.

but few good crops are. obtained
from early seeding, for although

One of the most important questions
connected with the dairy is how to
fasten the cows. Wrong methods ox
fastening without doubt cause a great
deal of positive suffering to the dumb
brutes, which might be easily avoided
by a little thought. Not only eo, but
cows poorly stabled often lie in filth
and make the milkers no end of
trouble, and more frequently than not
cause the pollution of the milk. We
have known of men who had this
trouble for years, and believed there
was no remedy for it. But by short
ening the length of the platforms on
which the cows stood it was found
that the necessity for uncleanliness
was obviated. The dairy readers of
the Farmers' Review will confer a
benefit on their brother dairymen by
a full discussion of this subject. We
would be pleased to receive answers
to the following questions:
1. What is the best method of
fastening cows, taking into considera
tion the comfort of the animals?
2. What method will keep the cows
3. Is not the custom of fastening
cows in rigid stanchions, cruelty to
4. What is the best length for plat
forms, considering size of cow?

the platforms above the dung-trough?

FARM SCENE IN BRAZIL.
A Vamwiu.e Pasture. There is a
man in Chicago who pays SI 8. 000 a
year for the privilege of keeping a
cow. He is a sane man, a business
man, a man of family, and generally
respected in the community. His poor
relatives call him a freak, and his
neighbors shrug their shoulders and
murmur things about rich men's
whims. The way of it is that he pos
sesses a valuable building lot in a
choice residence portion of the city,
and having nothing else to do with it,
he put a nice little fence around it and
quartered therein his pet Jersey cow
The cow was an artistic cow, and har-
monized well with the green turf and
lilac bushes, so people rather admired
the arrangement One day a man came
along who thought he would like to
build a house on that particular lot.
so he hunted up the owner and made
him a spotca-h offer of S300, 00 forthe
land. His offer was refused, decisively
and politely. "But," remonstrated a
relative, aghast, "that would pay you
StSOOO a year! Why on earth did you
refuse it?"' The rich man lit a cigar,
and turned a protesting face on the
accuser. "Yes," he assented in a puz
zled way, "but what would I have done
with my cow?" Chicago Record.
Raspberry Antiiracxose This dis
easo of the raspberryr, more commonly
known as the raspberry cane rust, is
very destructive in most of the north
ern states. There is a striking simi
larity of character between the rasp
berry anthracnose and the anthrac
nose of the grape. As its common
name would indicate, this disease af
fects the canes, and in chk-r ones it
will sometimes crack them to the pith,
which of course affects the appearance
and growth of the whole plant The
Bordeaux mixture will prevent this
disease from getting a start in rasp
berry patches, ami should be prepared
and applied as follows: Dissolve G
pounds of sulphate of copper (blue
vitriol) in 1G gallons of water. In an
other vessel slake 4 pouuds of fresh
lime in 6 gallons of water. When the
last solution is cooled pour it slowly
into the copper solution, taking care to
mix the fluids thoroughly by constant
stirring. In spriug. just before vegeta
tion starts, give the plants their first
application, apply the mixture the
teconel time just after they drop their
bloom, and the third application ten
davs later. Wm. Stahl.

The season will soon be here when
the production of butter will be largely
ia excess of the consumptive require
ments and the problem of where to
put or what to do with it will be a
serious question to producers and deal
ers, says Elgin Dairy Report The
unfortunate experience of many deal
ers the past season will not be encour
aging to themselves or others to utilize
the splendid storage facilities that
have been provided in all the large
centers. Then the large amounts of
oleomargarine that have been used in
place of the genuine article have taken
the place of millions of pounds. Those
two factors stand in the way of specu
lation in butter, and just what the
effect will be on prices during the
early summer and the flush of milk is
a question that is being very generally
discussed. The fact that production
has not kept pace with consumption
will be forgotten most likely, and
dealers who would under a different
condition of affairs invest in butter
during June and July will doubtless
hesitate before they risk their money,
except at very low prices. The low
prices for other agricultural products
will be used to bear the prices on the
products of the dairy, and it will be
well for the factory men to keep posted
and seek, if possible, a broader market
for their goods. Storage butter cin
now be so well kept that the difference
in value between it and fresh made is
very small indeed, and as the supply
decreases the value of fresh advances
more than enough to cover the difference.

FROM FARMERS' REVIEW.
In the breeding of good dairy cows
there is always "room at the top." A
great deal of talk is made about breed
ing fine horses for sale, but few farm
ers make a specialty of breeding first
quality dairy cows. Yet the demand
for such cows is always good, and gen
erally in excess of the supply. Thou
sands of town people every year get it
into their heads to keep a cow. Such
people want a very good cow, and are
willing to pay a very pood price for
her. A medium cow can hardly be sold
at any price to town buyers, for the
latter buy cows for a luxury, und watit
a good thing, and know it. Such cows
to sell well may generally be 3, 4 or 5
years old. If they have reached their
maximum capacity they arc judged by
that. The town buyer elocs not want
a young cow, giving little milk, with
the promise of giving more. Keeping
her in the town is expansive, and the
townsman cannot aflcrel to wait for
his purchase to "grow up with the
country." But while tha farmer is de
veloping her he is getting enough in
the way of milk and calves to pay ex
penses. Altogether we believe that
this is an opportunity for the farmer,
and a demand that will not be fully
met in this generation.
Ax association of farmers in Kent
county on the eastern shore of Mary
land, sent a committee to investigate
the profits of market gardening, or
truck-farming, as the phrase is. in
Lancaster county, Pa. The commit
tee returned to report having seen one
farm of eighty acres, from half of
which a market gardener told yearly
S1G.000 worth of fruits and vegetables,
and another farm of twenty acres that
yields a gross sum of 58,000 per
year. Another market ganlener bed a
profit ofSG.000 yearly from six acres,
still another sells from SI.,000 to S20,
000 worth of products from ninety
acres. The committee urges the mem
bers of the association togive up peach
culture and take to market gardening.
Such a change of policy means almost
a social revolution in a community of
aristocratic tradition, where lands
have teen long in family possessions
and where lanel holding is a badge of
respectability. It means the substitu
tion of small culture for large hold
ings, because few land owners have
sufficient capital to undertake market
gardening on a great scale.
Although the Japanese form but a
very small proportion of the popula
tion of the country, numbering only

laborers having come there in viola

complaints have led the Japanese gov
ernment to issue an ord. nance to re
strain and regulate emigration from
Japan to other countries. Under the
new ordinance it is understool no
emigrant will be permitted lo leave
Japan to go to any country where his
coming would be in violation of the
law of that country.

For washing the trunks of trees to

of soft soap should be substituted for
the hard sOap, and, without the final

ACID FOR SUGAR MAKING
d Water Combined to Farm
A very novel method of making sugar
has been patented in France by M.
Pellegrini. Sugar is, chemically, a com
pound of carbon, oxygen and hydrcgen,
iu such proportions that If rarbonic
acid, water and certain kinds of illu
minating gas could be persuaded to
unite, iu the proper quautities, tho
composition of sugar would be exactly
imitated. Hitherto, no one has been
able to make a sugar by mixing water
with two kinds of gas, but M. Pelle
grini claims to have succoeeleel. The
apparatus he uses consists of :i large
block of pumice stone, cleaned by soak
ing, first iu sulphuric acid and theu iu
water, which is set In an iron box,
plated with nickel inside. The length
of the box is three times that of the
pumice stone block, which Is tightly
fitted into the middle, and pipes are
arrangeel to convey the ingredienis to
the empty ends of the box. as reepiired.
Two of them enter from the sides, and
serve to bring carbonic acid and hydro
carbon gas. while another pipe from
above, branched so as to reach both
empty portions of the box. conveys
steam. AH the pipes are fitted with
valves ami pressure guages. Another
pipe, at the bottom of the box. serves
as au outlet. At first this pipe is closed,
as is also the steam pipe from above,
and carbonic acid is forcenl inte one end
of the box, while ethylene gas is forced
into the other, under equal pressure
and in equal volumes. A few minute's
later the steam valve above is opened
and steam forceel in under the same
pressure. As the gases unite the press
ure falls, so that the supply of each
must be kept constant. At the end of
half an hour the supply of gas is shut
off, the outlet pipe is opened and one
of the chambers is found to be filled
with syrup, containing '2o per cent of
sugar. The syrup is elrawu off for re
fining, and as soon as the app ir.itus is
ccol it Is ready for a fresh charge.
The ethylene gas can be obtained by
roasting rosin or grease, but M. Pe'lli
griui's patent covers either hydro-carbons,
such as petroleum products. The
explanation is that the three gases are
conelenseel in the pores of the pumice
stone and there unite; but M. Maninene,
who has made some experiments, de
