The loss of the masticating teeth
before the thirtieth year means a
shortening of tho life of the individ
ual of from two to five years. To
lmow the extent to which many of
these teeth are lost, even before the
fifteenth year, one has only to turn to
the recently published reports of the
examination of the teeth of children
in the schools and orphan homes of
London and elsewhere. If some
effective measures are not adopted for
combating the ravages of dental decay
it looks very much as though another
half century would find tiie poorer
classes of English people practically
edentulous before the twentieth year.

Much amused comment was caused
during the cross-examination of tho
prince of Wales in the baccarat case
by the number of time3 that Solicitor
General Sir Edward Clarke made use
of the words "your royal highness,"
thereby demonstrating his ignorance
of the usages of court life. The prefix
of "your majesty" and of 'your royal
highness" are rarely if eccr used by
the people in the swim, except in offi
cial verbal and written communica
tions. Both the prince of Wales and
aU the other male members of his fam
ily are addressed merely as "sir" and
you;"' while not only the princesses,
both young and old, but also the queen
herself are addressed as "ma'am."
Nothing is moro amusing to those un
accustomed to this peculiarity than to
listen to .some old and stately ambassa
dress or di:-hcss deferentially address
ing a little 3-ycar-old princess as
"ma'am,' and I confess that 1 myself,
on the first occasion after my arrival in
England on which 1 was honored with
a few words by her majesty, found it
very difficult to habituate myself, when
.replying to the somewhat common
place word "ma'am." Xew York Re

About Quill Pens.
A quill pen maker says that no pen
will do as fine writing as the crow
quill. It requires the assistance of a
microscope to make a proper pen out
of such a quill, but when made it is
of wonderful delicacy. The microscopic
writing told of in books of literary
curiosities was all dotic with a crow
quill. The steel pens of the present
. have very fine points, but somehow a
finer point can be given to a quill
than has ever been put on a steel pen,
and for delicacy nothing can equal it.

Wallm? for the Dead.
The coronach, or mourning for the
dead, is still heard in some parts of
Scotland as well as of Ireland. It is a
weird chant, cries of lamentation be
ing mingled with remonstrances ad
dressed to the departed for leaving his
friends and relatives. In some remote
country districts of both Scotland and
Ireland professional "keeners" that
is, old women employed to sing praises
of the dead arc still to be found,
though their services are by no means
so often called into requisition as they
were half a eentttrv ago.

T IS hard to predict
how a species will
act. The behavior
of a specie" in a
new country is fre
?rom that in its na
tive locality lieing
without Its natural
tfiCl&s.it will some
times increase inor
dinately, as did the
Icerya ptirchasi in California. The San
Jose scale, so destructive in the United
States, attracts so little attention
wherever it originally came from, that
ve do not to this day know with any
'certainty its original habitat. Species
closely allied to the San Jose ecale,
natives of the United Stal03, are not
nearly so destructive. The red scale of
the orange, Aspidiotus aurantii, in Ja
maica never infests citruit fruits, but
occurs on ligstim-vitac r.nd palms; how
different arc its habits in California!
In Japan there is a scale almost ex
actly identical with the San Jose scale,
which infests citrus trees, which the
real San. josc scale never docs in Amer
ica. Therefore, in view of such facts as
those, we can fairly say that vve never
know what we are in for. when we in-
I troduce a new scale. A traveler, bring
ing a little ornamental plant in a pot,
may unwittingly ruin a great horti
cultural industry. Most of the worst
scales are general feeders, and arc lia
h!c to spread from garden or even hot
house plants to orchards.
Climatic harriers cannot always, be
trusted. The rapid spread of some
Jenle insects shows that .hey can en
dure grct differences of climate. While
the climatic barriers to the spread cf
some species are real and important,
it will not do to trust too much to them.
It is probable that the very rapid re
production of coccidae enables them to
quickly adapt themselves to changes of
climate, through the survival of the fit
test. Thus if there are a million scales
in an orchard which is touched by frost,
if only one gravid female survives it
will suffice to eventually restock the
orchard, and with a comparatively
frost-proof race. Be this as it may, the
peach scale, Diaspis aniygdali, flourish
es equally at Washington, D. C, and in
the tropics; and many others could be
cited which endure great differences
of climate in different parts of their
It will now be useful to consider the
countries from which we are liable to
he infested. From Europe we may ex
pect many pests of shade trees and de
ciduous fruit trees especially. For ex
ample, we have already received the
maple Phenacoccus, the elm Gossy
paria, the New York plum scale (so
called), the Lecanium bituberculatum,
etc. It must also be remembered that
semi-tropical scales may and unques
tionably do, spread by way of Europ
ean hot-houses; in this way, for ex
ample, Orthezia insignia, a destructive
West Indian species, was undoubtedly
introduced into Ceylon.
From the West Indies and Mexico
countries we may expect especially
pests of citrus fruits, of cotton, sugar
cane; etc.; also the peach scale, Diaspis
aniygdali, which has already reached
this country. A further exploration of
Mexico and most of the West Indian
islands is urgently needed, to determine
the kinds of insect pests there occur
ring. From Japan, perhaps, we stand
in most danger. The climatic condi
tions permit the growth of the same
species of fruit trees as are grown in
America, and of late Japanese varieties
have become very popular, nnd have
been imported in quantity. The peach
scale, Diaspis aniygdali, is common in
Japan, and there are many other in
jurious species. Unfortunately, cur
knowledge of Japanese scale insects is
yet in its infancy, and someone ought
to he sent there lor a year to study the
subject on the spo;. Some injurious
species may also tu.ue Irani Australia,
Xew Zealand, the sandwich islands,
and in fact any place whence plants
are brought. Especial care should Le
taken to piceut the introduction of
Asterolecanium pustuslans from the
Sandwich Islands; it already exists iu
Florida, and is common also in the
West Indies. It especially infests ole
ander. .taii.iin-se Millet.
The Massachusetts Agricultural Ex
periment Station has recently intro
duced three new varieties of millets
"rcm Japan. Among them is a variety
jf barn-yard grass, Panicum Crus Gal
li, which, while it differs in its habits
of growth, is botanically identical
with the common barn-yard grass;
The variety from Japan has been
grown for a few years at the Massa
chusetts Station. Piofessor Brooks of
that Station is very enthusiastic about
it and recommends it as a fodder crop
either for feeding green or for the silo.
As a forage plant it may yield ten or
twelve tons of fodder per acre, and
when thinly sown in rows about a foot
apart a yield of Ofty to ninety bushels
ot ced may be obtained. Ordinary
barnyard grass is a coarse annual,
with stems two to four feet in length,
appearing in mid-summer, in low,
somewhat damp places or on cultivat
ed grounds. The ordinary variety is
i very troublesome weed. Professor
Brooks says: "This Japanese variety
of the species has not become a weed
here, however, although the seed does
not lose all vitality during the win
ter. Although it is possible that it
tx-ight under some circumstances be
come troublesome, it is hardly liable to
prove more so than clover or winter
wheat, for instance." This plant is be
ing quite extensively advertised by
seedsmen under the name of Japanese
.Millet, or its scientific name, Panicum
Crus Galli. While this may prove to
be a valuable acquisition to our fod
der plants and not become a means
of spreading a bad weed, the Experi
ment Station would recommend the
farmers of Maine to be cautious about
purchasing seed of this new plant. Cer
tainly the seed of Panicum Crus Galli
should be bought only of reliable deal
ers, who will be sure to furnish the
seed of the Japanese variety. The mis
chief that would be wrought by sowing
seed of ordinary barnyard grass is
ielf-evident. Chas. D. Woods,
Director Maine Experiment Station.
Inferior Wood ArIic.
In Bulletin 43 of the New Hampshire
Tollege Agricultural Experiment Sta- !
ion Prof. Fred W. Morse writes: The i
ime for purchasing fertilizers having '
ome, the station wishes to call the at- '
ention of farmers to the veritable com
losition of wood ashes and particu'ar
y to some evidently fraudulent lots of
Tanada ashes, samples of which were
'eceived at the laboratory last fall,
"ive samples, representing three dif
erent lots, were received during Octo
jer, 1S96, from widely different sec-
:Ions of the state, namely Plymouth, i
Stratham and Walpole. The ash
were all bought of the same wholesale
dealer, and analysis showed them to
be quite uniform in quality, but no
ticeably Inferior. The proportion ol
potash is low, especially it the soluble
form is alone considered which fad
taken with the quantity of water, leads
one to suspect that these ashes had
been either leached partially or pre
pared by mixing leached and dry ashes
together. The proportion df lime found
in the most inferior sample disposes
of any fcusplcio'n of adulteration with
lime as the precentage is not high. The
price of these ashes was $10 per ton
delivered in carload lots at the respec
tive railroad stations. This price is
lower than any quotations previously
known to the station. The important
point for the purchaser, however, te
that the low price was accompanied by
an apparently deliberate reduction in
the quality of ashes. During the year
preceding the receipt of the five sam
ples above described, the Canada ashec
sent to the station for analysis were ol
good quality. One sample is of inter
est because, though very moist, it yet
contains a high percentage of potash.
The ashes had most probably been ex
posed to rain, instead of having been
leached and afterward partially dried.
Three samples of domestic ashes are
characterized by being very dry, and
one was probably taken soon after the
ashes were removed from the stove.
Average Canada ashes contain about 12
per cent of moisture, which renders
them as damp as the average chemical
fertilizer. Buyers of ashes should
therefore look with suspiciori on lots
that appear excessively moist, because
in such cases the potash Is seldom
equal to the proportion in average
ashes. The refuse ashes were samples
from burned rubbish, principally waste
paper and refuse lumber. The analyti
cal results speak for themselves. Ashes
from paper are as valueless as those
from coal because the soluble mineral
matter has been leached out of the pa
per stock during the process of paper
Oiling the Harness.
Harness will last much longer and
look much better If kept well oiled, and
will not get so stiff after being exposed
to a day's rain, says Journal of Agri
culture. During the spring it is dif
ficult to keep harness from getting wet,
and it will pay well before the season's
work begins to see that it is thoroughly
oiled. In doing the work, the harness
should be taken apart, washed clean,
using warm water and castile soap, and
then wiped dry, when the oil should be
applied. If so clean that washing is not
needed, it will be better to wipe off with
a wet rag as the oiling can be done bet
ter. It is best to take harness all
apart, in order to get at all of the parts
and oil thoroughly. Good harness oil
can be purchased all ready for use, or
nentsfoot oil, with a little lamp black,
will be found good. If the harness has
not been oiled for some time and is
hard nnd dry, it will be best to go over
them twice1", finishing all up, and then
commencing with the first piece and
going over again. After every part has
been thoroughly oiled, it should all be
hung up over a frame of some kind
and allowed to dry. It should not be
hung in the sun or where the wind
strikes, as it will dry too rapidly. The
oil should have plenty of time to soak
in. Like most other work on the farm,
if undertaken it will pay to do well.

Native Shrubs. I would like to say
a good word for some native shrubs.
The black alder belonging to the holly
family. Is a hardy shrub and a beauti
ful plant, especially when the fruit is
ripe. Then there is the Nine-Bark
(Spiraea prunifolla), beautiful in its
bloom and beautiful in its seed. Both
cf these shrubs are hardy native shrubs,
with their fruit turning a beautiful
crimson in the fall. Among other
things, not perhaps in the line of
shrubs, are the climbing vines or
plants, such as the Boston Ivy. It
gives character to the buildings in the
eastern states and adds beauty and
charms to the common brick walls, if
we can make it do half as well as they
grow it there, it would change the
looks of a village like Sparta mort.
than any other thing that could be
planted. Tlie Five-leaved Ivy (Ampe
lcpsis yuinyuefolla), commonly called
Virginia Creeper, is another"native vine
and will grow well almost anywhere.

Weaning Time. When the weaning
time comes for the ewe flock they
should be watched closely in meadow
or pasture, and if tliey cannot have this
care they should be kept in a lot where
they can have access to a warm barn.
As fast as they wean they should le
put into what might be called the nur
sery flock and fed for all that the milk
and lambs are worth. Feed for milk.
This will make another flock with a lit
tle different feeding. Ex.
Never use a male bird unless he is
rufc bred. No matter what the breed
ing of the hens, there is no way to im
prove a flock that is better than to use
pure bred males. They transmit to
their progeny the good qualities that
have been bred into them and mako
the flock mnm profitable each year.
A Veteraa Shock's Advice.
I have shed horses for forty years,
nd will give my experience concern
tog the shoeing and the care of the
feet, writes William Gilinter, Sr., in
Firm Journal, t would first say it is
hot the best blacksmith that makes the
shoe stick the longest on the horse.
That depends oh the quality of the
calls an'd the good of the feet. I am
hot anyways backward in stating that
there are more horse's feet injured in
shoeing than any person would think
there were. When the smith goes to
shoe a horse he should take a good
look at the foot and see whether the
foot is straight or not, and then dress
and set the shoe so as the foot becomes
straight. First, don't lower the heel too
much; don't cut the frog, only the
loose fragments. Pare the-foot hollow
so as the shoe rests on the horn of the
foot. Cut some of the toe of the foot
off as it grows long. Keep the tcot as
round as possible. Don't fit the fcot
to the shoe, but fit the shoe to the foot.
Here is where the trouble is with nine
out of ten smiths they don't shape the
shoe right. You take a colt when he
is first shod and his foot is round, and
so it ought to be kept, and then there
would be fewer narrow, contracted
horse's feet than there are. Take a
good look at the most of horse's feet,
fthd just see how narrow and pointed
and long they are. Not round and
broad as nature would have them, just
because the smith shapes the shoe nar
row, and puts it on the foot and cuts
off the sides of the foot, and in a short
time you will have a narrow, con
tracted foot, and every time the horse
is shod it becomes more so. I have
many a time, or always do, alter the
Bhape of a shoe by rounding it on the
toe. If you have a narrow foot that
has been spoiled in thus shoeing, you
can in a short time have it wide and
broad by making the shoe rounder on
the toe, and in several shoeings as the
fcot grows It will become wide. An
other point, set the shoe straight on the
foot, range it in. line with the frog and
the toe of the shoe. Look at the foot
and see whether one side has grown
out more than the other side and set
the shoe over so as the foot becomes
straight. I will also give you ray way
of shoeing a horse that interferes or
cuts his ankles in traveling. In dress
ing the foot cut down the outside of the
foot as low as possible; leave the in
side high. In fitting the shoe for sum
mer have a spring heel shoe; have the
inside of the shoe the highest and in
setting the shoe set it in a little of the
foot. A horse never strikes or cuts
himself with the heel of the shoe. It is
always with the side of the foot or the
side of the shoe or the clinches of the
rails. For winter shoeing raise the in
side calk the highest. A horse will cut
or interfere most when the roads are
rough or uneven. In thus shoeing ou
will observe that when the horse sets
his foot down on level ground the ankle
will incline out, and as the other foot
passes by it will not strike. On rough
and uneven roads he sometimes sets his
foot down the lowest on the inside, and
thus will strike or cut the ankle.
Sugar Beet llulletlus.
The Arizona experiment station has
just issued a timely bulletin upon the
sugar beet. Never before in the United
States has there been manifested such
deep interest in the sugar beet and
sugar beet culture as at present. The ag
ricultural press from the British posses
sions to the gulf and from the Atlantic
to the Pacific bear evidence of the fact
that the people throughout the United
States are aroused in this matter and
propose finding out whether it is pos
sible for the United States to grow its
own sugar, instead of sending abroad
each year the enormous sum of $100,
000.000 for this commodity. The re
markable success attained at nearly, if
not quite all, the factories in operation
during the past year has stimulated
this interest and now there is scarcely
a locality in the United States which
does not desire a sugar beet factory
nnd is not taking steps to ascertain
whether beetB cannot be grown of suffi
ii:;t richness of sugar to warrant the
establishing of a factory in that place.
in view of these facts this bulletin will
i undoubtedly be welcomed by a large
part of the farming community in
many portions of the union. The bul
letin is an exhaustive one, going to
some length into the history of the
sugar beet industry and giving numer
ous statistics setting forth the advan
tages to a commuuity of a sugar beet
factory. While destined primarily for
regions in which the beet must be
grown by means of irrigation, it is not
without interest to all localities. It
will be sent gratis to all interested
who will apply to William Stowe De
vol, Director experiment station, Tuc
Beet Sugar Factories. The first beet
sugar factory erected in Germany was
put upon the estate of Baron de Kop
py in 1805. This was a small affair, be
ing capable of working up but 525 tons
of beet roots per year. This is in great
contrast to the modern factory. The
one at Watsonville, Cal., worked last
year 1,400 tons of beets in one day, and
a factory is being built at Salinas,
Cal., with a capacity for working 3,
000 tons of beets in twenty-four hours.
At the Watsonville factory last year
there was manufactured a total of 20.
000 tons of sugar.
Australian Salt Bush. Some Austra
lian salt bush has been growing upon
the experiment station grounds at Tuc
son, Ariz., without water for over two
years. The location of the plants is
upon the mesa north of the city, where
it is very dry. This would indicate
that this forage plant is valuable for
arid regions, and as experiments made
elsewhere show that it thrives .upon
alkali land, it promises to be a valu
able acquisition for Arizona. The ex
periment station at Tucson has been
distributing seeds gratis throughout
Arizona for the purpose of having this
plant thoroughly tested in that re
gion. Apples as Food. Apples are, a doctor
says, excellent brain food, because they
contain more phosphoric acid in tasily
dieestible shape than any other po
tables known. It excites the action of
the liver, promotes sound and healthy

rrouth. That is not all. The apple ag
glutinates the surplus acids of the
stouiacu, uciiJA iub Kiuney secretions
and prevents calculus growths, while it
obviates indigestion and is one of the
best preventives known of diseases of
the throat. Ex.
