Stoddard's Table Talk: In a speech
at Chicago in 165S he said:
"My friend has said that I am a poor
hand "to quote Scripture. I will try it
.again, however. It is said in one of
the admonitions of our Lord: 'As your
Father in heaven is perfect, be ye also
perfect.' The Savior, I suppose, did
not expect any human creature could
be perfect as the Father in heaven, but
He said: As your Father in heaven is
perfect, be ye also perfect.' He set
that as a standard and lie who did most
in reaching that standard attained the
highest degree of moral perfection. So
I say in relation to the principle that
all men are created equal, let it be as
nearly reached as we can. If we can
not give freedom to every creature, let
ns do nothing that will impose slavery
upon any other creature."

In those portions of the arid and
semi-arid regions adapted to its growth
one of the surest and best paying crops
is the sugar beet. This is a crop that
may be grown with but a moderate
amount of irrigation if the ground is
properly prepared for the crop and the
most thorough cultivation is practised.
One of the prime requisites in growing
sujrar beets for sugar making is that
the ground be plowe deeply. In no
other way is it possible to grow straight,
smooth roots, such as is required in su
gar production. A stunted, scraggy
root, such as will be produced where
the subsoil is dry and hard, will not
yield a satisfactory per cent of sugar.
Deep plowing and thorough surface
cultivation, the two requisites in pro
ducing a good crop of sugar beets, are
also the two processes which most
surely and effectually conserve water
supply. Hence it is that if a crop of
beets is propperly planted ana culti
vated the water used to irrigate them
can be made to go a long way. A few
acres of sugar beets, well tended, will
pay the cultivator a larger profit than
i big field of wheat at current prices,
iccording to the Irrigation Age.

How to Handle Poultry.
The Kansas Farmer says: Never
seize a fowl by the tail, is a fine one,
nor touch the back, but grasp both
legs at once with a firm, tight, quick
hold, and then raise free from the
ground or perch and hang the body
down clear of any obstacle. This
method docs not rullie the plumage or
turn a feather, which in a fine bird
must be avoided. When the web of
the feathers is once broken it can
never be united again, and where much
handled this often occurs, giving the
bird a ragged appearance.

MATTERS OF INTEREST TO
fosaeCp to Date Hints About CaltlTa
tioo of the Soil and Yields Thereof
Uorticaltare, Yitlc-lt-r and fieri
cnlture. Caltare of Raspberries.
I am often asked by letter how I man
age Blackcaps in planting, cultivating
and pruning. To answer each inquiry it
takes much time, and as many that
make inquiries are readers of the Farm
ers' Review, I answer through that
medium, and I hope to make the most
practical mode of planting and after
work so plain that the novice in berry
growing will know of a certainty how
to proceed from start to finish, and all
inquiries may be fully answered. How
to plant We should plant the rows
seven feet apart, and set the plants
three feet apart in the rows. Plant
rows north and south where practica
ble, but would rather plant east and
west than to plant up and down hill.
Well grown plants before taken up
occupy with their roots a circle of
about one foot in diameter. I there
fore dig holes for plants at least one
foot across and several inches deeper
than the plants want to be set.
The setter draws some of the good
top soil back into the hole, leaving it
higher in the middle, and having it
deep enough to allow the sprout of
plant to be about two inches below
the surface, and let the long, small
roots slope downwards around the
center and fill fine soil on the roots
and press it down firm, but leave soil
mellow and rake after rains to prevent
crust from forming. Cultivate and
hoe often, but the steel rake is more
safe to use until plants are well up.
When plants have grown to be about
one foot high pinch from tips of lead
ing shoots about one and one half
inches to make them grow more stocky
and they will form better hills and not
grow so low and sprawling. After
pinching a tip back once, do not touch
it again that season, but let it grow
at will. Never tie to stakes.
If the soil is good, and good cultiva
tion given, and plants were good to
start with, you will be surprised at
their great growth. It matters not
what form your vines may take, do not
touch them until the next spring, and
especially if you have planted the
Older, they will take care of them
selves, as far as winter's winds and
cold are concerned, as they need no
protection, winter or summer, to stand
our climate, north or south. The next
spring shorten in the canes to make a
compact hill, perhaps no larger than a
half bushel basket As soon as
pruning is done each spring, keep
ground well cultivated, the more often
the better, until berries are nearly
ripe. Mulching put in at that time will
hold moisture and keep fruit clean.
The last of May or fore part of June,
one year from planting, the young
canes will spring up from the
hills, and when they are from
IS to 24 inches high, according
to their strength and uprightness, cut
or pinch from their tops about one and
one half inches. Go over the patch
about every two days (as the canes
grow up very quickly) and pinch off all
canes as they get the right height. We
usually watch the patch for shoots
about ten days after we commence to
pinch back. We say again, never pinch
a cane but once, and we would about
as soon dig up the whole patch and
throw it into the brush pile as to neir- !
lect to pinch the canes at the right
time. After the pinching back is all
done they want no more pruning until
the next spring, except cutting out old
canes after fruiting. As soon 'as the
crop of fruit is picked, remove all old
canes that fruited, cutting them off
near the ground, and carry out at once
and burn them. As soon as old-canes
are out cultivate at once, to be out of
the way of young canes, and clean out
with hoe all weeds and grass
that may be among the hills.
In after years do as already advised,
but pinch back cancssomewhat higher,
but leave them not over two and a half
feet high, to get the greatest crop, and
stand winds without supports. As
hills get older,perhaps they may throw
up too many canes in a hill. In that
case, after removing old canes, cut out
all surplus ones, leaving the best and
strongest. I often leave as many as
eight or ten, if even in size. The more
left the closer one has to prune. Four
strong canes with many laterals are
better than more. Shorten in canes
every spring to make a good hill and
row, and not leave the canes too long.
You will be more inclined to leave too
much wood rather than not enough.
There is no rule to lay down to prune
by, but to use our best judgment. After
a season or two of careful watching
we will learn what they need. Differ
ent varieties need somewhat different
treatment, as some grew more
sprawling than others. The Older
will take on a better form of
row, of itself, than any other Black
cap that I have can be pruned to make.
The Older is the ideal bush, and no
other grows in so fine a form, neither
can they be pruned to grow like it,
and they give me more pleasure, satis
faction and profit, than any other that
I ever planted. Pruning Last spring
to guard against wind storms. I pruned
shorter than ever before, so the hills
looked rather stumpy until the leaves
were out. The canes are very short
pointed and the fruit stems came out
in multitude, from five to ten inches in
length. At picking time the rows
were even and in good form, being
about three and a half feet high and
about four feet wide or through, and
a mat of' berries spread over the whole
surface like a blanket. No picker
could pick over one row, sixteen rods
long,iu ten hours; and last season was
a poor one on account of late frosts,
high winds and burning drouth.
Pickers could not cross over from one
row to another, as they were unbroken
like a hedge; they usually give us pick
ing from twelve to fourteen days. My
oldest rows, some of them 15 years
old, produced the most fruit. My
patch is always pruned and cared for
according to the above and I always
succeed in having a heavy crop of fruit.
I use no wire or other 'supports, give
no winter protection, although cold
reaches thirty-five degrees below zero.
I think any novice in fruit growing, by
following these instructions and
practices, with good brains and a will
ing mind, may do well, as the above is
practical and not all theory. L. K.
uaiiard in tanners7 Keview.
Pruning Yocxo Trees. Young trees
should be pruned intelligently, not by
an amateur. A well proportioned,
symmetrical form is desired. A strong,.
stocky growth should be induced.
When the tree grows older it will be
better able to bear a heavy crop of
fruit without breaking, and the sap
will be diverted from the terminal
branches to the weaker sidebuds. If
not thus pruned the te-minal branches
will run up rapidly, and become so tall
and slender that they will be of little
use. Our Grange Homes
Drawing out manure in the spring
when the work is pushing' and
the ground is soft and muddy is
always a bother and a bugbear
to the new hired man who comes
about that time. All this work could
be saved, and much more of the fer
tilizing value of the manure, by draw
ing it out and spreading it as fast as it
is made. Then, too, work is not so
pushing and a man has plenty of time
to draw out a load .every day, or two
or three times a week. Practical
On this National Dairyman com
ments as follows: All very plausible,
and indeed very practical on dead level
land, but what about hilly land, where
the most valuable part of the manure
will be washed away by the heavy
rains or as the snow melts? There
are two sides tb every question, and
while hauling a load every day may be
economical in one way it means hitch
ing up for every load instead of for
half a day's work. But that is the
smallest consideration. The main
thing is the horrible waste by spread
ing the green manure and exposing it
to alternate sun and rain. We con
fess to an old fashioned liking for a
manure heap under cover and well
cared for by pumping the liquid
manure over it now and then, increas
ing its size by leaves, sweepings, etc,
and it was with satisfaction that we
read in Hoard's Dairyman the follow
ing by Mr. J. D Smith of Delaware
county, New York:
"Some nine years ago we built our
house and found it necessary to tear
down our pig pen. The following sea
son we concluded to build a carriage
house and horse barn. This is 30x40;
our old house was 2?x3i. This we
placed upon a foundation at the end of
the horse barn on a line with the
lower side, making the length of the
two 74 feet. I removed all flooring and
floor joists, and made a jement floor
about two feet below the sills. I never
expect to live long enough to see the
sills rot out. The cement floor is laid
on an incline of eight inches in twenty
seven feet. (If building again would
have as much as twelve inches incline.)
At the lowest, or back side, I made a
sort of trough or depression to conduct
the liquids toward the center. In the
wall at this point I left an opening or
doorway large enough for a good sized
hog to go through. Through this open
ing all the liquids pass into a vat, the
bottom of which i3 about four feet be
low the bottom of the main pen. This
vat is what I term my 'manure fac
tory.' It is 12 feet wide, 48 feet long
and about 10 feet high, a wall laid in
cement with water tight cement bot
tom. In the center of the wall I left
a wide doorway which is high enough
to back a wagon under the sill to clean
out the manure. The manure from
the horse 'stable goes into this vat
every day and is worked up by the
pigs, absorbing the liquids. We have
never yet worked it to its full capacity,
but have taken out 150 good wagon
loads as the year's make. I find it
more valuable for the production of
corn, grass or any farm crops than any
cow manure I can get. The liquids
from-pigs are very rich in potash, and
I find no difficulty in growing line
crops of clover on land manured with
that taken from this vat."
"Dark Ago or Agriculture."
The "dark age of agriculture" in
England is said to have been during
the civil strife known as the Wars of
the Roses. This idea is corroborated by
Mr. Corbett in his recently published
work on the history of England. He
remarks that "during the whole of the
years between the revolt of the peas
ants under Wat Tyler and their re
volt in 1.719 under Ket hardly a single
improvement was introduced. The
uses of clover, turnips and artificial
grasses still remained uuknown, plow
ing continued to be little more than a
scratching of the surface, draining and
manuring were neglected; an.l even
marling went somewhat out of fash
ion. For draft purposes horses
were still hardly ever utcd,
oxen being preferred, because they
cost less to keep in winter, wanted no
shoes, and when dead were man's meat,
whereas horses were carrion. And
yet the common pastures were in many
cases as bare and unsheltered, and the
grass so poor, that we arc assure 1 it
was almost impossible to keen work
ing oxen in condition upon them."' The
cultivation of "such herbes, ft tutus,
and roots as grow yearly out of the
ground of seed," which had been plen
tiful on the land in the days of the
Edwards, "in process of time grew also
to be neglected," so that from Henry
IV. till the beginning of the reign of
Henry VIII. there was little or no use
of them in England.

planter in the Mississippi bottom, who
visited Russia last year for the pur
pose of gaining information in regard
to the culture of the sunflower in that
country, gives his observation as fol
lows: "The Russians who grow the
plant generally sow the seeds after a
crop of wheat and rye has been har
vested from the land. Some sow after
oats and buckwheat, but have found
it less profitable to sow after the latter.
as the buckwheat takes up such a large
per cent of potassium from the soil that
the flower does not pay. It thrives
and heads well after crops of rye and
clover. The land intended to be
planted is thoroughly plowed in the
fall and left until the next spring, at
which time the seeds are sown, either
in drills or broadcast. If in rows, they
are planted from twelve to twenty-four
inches apart, depending largely on the
fertility of the soil. On some of the
rich, black lands, they grow four to
six crops without resting the land."

TRAILED BY BLOODHOUNDS.
A Tennesiee Thief Run Down After a
Chase of Twenty-Three Miles.
Patrolman Perry Phipps and his two
trusty bloodhounas, Joe and Jim, have
done some fine work lately, says tho
Chattanooga Times. Thoy trailed A
thief twenty-three miles down a rail
read track and two miles through the
woods and fields, finally funning the
fugitive down, and thereby enabling
the officers to effect his arrest. The
other night the depot at Wauhatchie
was broken into and a lot of tickets
were stolen. When tho agent came
down to the depot at about 6 o'clock
he telegraphed to Agent John M. Pee
bles of this city, who at once tele
phoned Chief Hill, and said he wanted
to get Phipps and his dogs
and tako them down there and
see if tho burglar could not bo
caught. It was about 7:45 o'clock.
Mr. Phipps promptly took his dogs
and went to the depot, where Mr.
Peebles was waiting for hint. An en
gine was already steamed up and tho
party boarded it. The start was mado
for Wauhatchie and the party arrived
there about 9 o'clock. Phipps took tho
hounds to the rear door and there put
them on the trail. They took it at
once and started from the depot plat
form right to tho track. They went
slowly down tho track and kept right
ahead. Mr. Phipps stayed with tho
dos and Mr. Peebles got on tho
engine, which followed at a distance.
The animals traveled along the track
for six miles and then suddenly di
verged to a spring, at which the pur
sued had evidently quenched his
thirst. Tho'dogs did likewise and re
turned to tho track, which they fol
lowed until, after covering twenty
miles, the pursuers on turning a curve
came in sight of tho fugitive.
The dogs felt that their victim was
near at hand. They began to utter
their savage cries and sprang forward
at an increased pacs. The fleeing
figure in the distance accelerated its
pace. So did tho dogs, and the chase
was most exciting. Finally, when tho
dogs were within a half mile of tho
man, he left the railroad track and
disappeared in a cornfield. Tho dogs
were soon after him. The engine ran
rapidly down-to the place where ho
left the track and stopped. Mr. Peo
ples, the fireman, Tom Carter and Mr.
Ahipps took out through the field.
The dogs were very much excited and
wore close to their victim. Through
field and forest tho chas3 continued.
Two miles the negro ran and tried to
elude the dogs, but they could not be
shaken off. They yelped at every
jump now, and made the forests ring.
Phipps was close behind the negro.
He was about 200 yards in the rear,
and the two were running through a
clover field. There was a house near
by, and calling at the top of his voice
to a man who was cutting wood in
front of the house, Mr. Phipps yelled
to him, "Stop him!"
The man rushed in front of the
nen-o and raised his ax. The ncjrro
whipped out a glittering revolver, and
the man fell back. Iho negro ran on.
with the dogs not fifty yards behind
him. They were so tired they could
just trot along. "Get me a horse,
quick!" called Phipps to the man.
"Hyars yer hoss," called an old
country lady as she trotted around tho
side of the house with a horse with
bridle and saddle on that luckily was
standing there. Phipps was almost
exhausted, but ho vaulted on the ani
mal and started in pursuit again. He
ran the negro about a quarter of a
mile and then ho turned at bay. Tho
dogs had just caught ud with him and
were snapping at his feot. Ho had
the pistol in his hands and ho was
pointing it at tho animals. Then
Phipps came up. The negro whirled
and pointed his gun at tho officer, but
changed his mind and surrendered.
He was brought back to jail.

There are a certain class of stars
which fly through space with a velocity
so enormous as to bafl!e every attempt
to account for them. The3' are known
to the investigators as "runaway stars"
and are no longer reckoned as being
among the phenomena of extreme rari
ty. One of these 111 the constellation 01
the Great lSear known as''Goombridge,
1S30,' long led the van of stellar speed,
sweeping over at least -00 miles of
space each second. Professor l'richard
has prov ed that the inconspicuous ob
ject called Cassiopeia is a sun 10 times
more luminous than our own, and that
it is traveling at the prodigious rate of
300 miles per second. Dr. Elkins lias
found something more wonderful in the
speed line in Arcturus, which is jog
ging along at 400 miles a second as a
steady pace, but having strange bursts
of speed, during which time its velocity
is increased by about one-fourth.
fc'ome of the runaways fly along in
pairs and are therefore supposed to be
connected by some invisible "bond of
union." This presumption was first
advanced some twentv-iive years a
and is even now being investigated bj'
he leaders in astronomical work.
A New Substance Discovered.
A German chemist is reported to have
discovered a new substance which has J
the remarkable and unirme property of
solidifying when heated and remaining
liquid at temperatures below zero. lt
h:is been nnmeil 'i;rvn,t:i.ti " mid is ob- !
tained by mixing together equal parts
of phenol, camphor and saponine, and
adding a somewhat smaller proportion
of essence of turpentine. Certain sub
stances, like the albumens, harden on
heating, but this is the only product
that again liquefies on heating.
I'oachcd Errs With Cream Sauco.

slip the eggs carefully into it, without,
breaking the yolks. When set remove .

night a great banquet was given, to
which he was invited. In the course of

with such suddenness that th-.' table,
caught by his protuberant bulk, was

New York Tribune: An experiment
with ball bearings was recently made
in Canada. A street car, fitted with
ball bearings, was drawn a distance of
several hundred feet by men pulling on
three strands of ordinary sewing
thread. A carriage manufacturer put
another style of ball bearings on the
axles of a coach ordinarily pulled" by
four horses. A trained dog was hitched
to the pole, and he drew the coach
around the vard with little effort. The
combination of pneumatic tires and
ball bearings would evidently relieve
! much of the strain now put on horses
j drawing heavy vehicles, and here is a
tip for an enterprising carriage builder.
How to Retain Ilcuuty.
J Lady Londondcrrj-, whose exquisite
rcse and white loveliness time has not
the heart to despoil, attributes her
youthful freshness to the practice of
spending one out of every ten days in
bed. She sleeps until she wakens natu
rally, takes a warm bath and goes back
to bed again, where she partakes of a
light breakfast, remaining in bed rest-
ing until six o'clock in the evening,
while her maid reads to her a light
novel. At six o'clock she puts on her
dressing robe and has her dinner served
in her room, and reclines on her sola.
until ten o'clock.
