With much to praise, little to be for

be grievously misjudged. The impression
that he was an Illiterate, boorish fron
tiersman, given to rough jokes, was one
widely disseminated by the opponents of
the political movement of which he was
the leader, and it died slowly even after
he had given ample proof of the greatness
of his qualities. The world was gradually
coming to a juster appreciation of the
man. when the assassin's bullet which
laid him low. swept away the lingering
clouds which still obscured his command
ing figure and revealed him for what he
was: one of the world's heroes, who be
longs not to a country or to a time, but
to the whole human race.
In two famous publications. Harper's
Weekly and London Bunch, he was cari
catured without mercy. The cartoons in
the latter were drawn by John Tenniel

of Punch: and looked back upon, through

There are few countries in which
travelers require passports in order to
promote convenience and security.
In Brazil and Venezuela a passport
must be shown to the officials before
one is allowed to leave the country
for a foreign port. This is a vexatious
measure enforced apparently for the
sake of enabling a few officials to col
lect Email fees. In Cuba passports are
produced whenever trailers arrive or
depart. This precaution is considered
necessary in view of the political con
dition of unre1 prevailing in the
In Russia passport regulations are
enforced with great stringency. No
traveler is allowed to enter the empire
until he has obtained a passport and
convinced the Russian consular offi
cers at the port from which he sails
that he is neither a Roman Catholic
priest nor a Hebrew. The question
ordinarily asked is: "What is your re
ligion?" but it is designed to provide
against the entry of either of these two
When the traveler arrives at a Rus
sian port with a passport which has
been properly viseed and countersign
ed at a consular office. It is critically
examined by a police officer, and duly
At the entrance of the hotel another
police officer takes possession of the
document, and in the course of twenty-four
hours returns it with a permit
for a limited residence in the country.
When the traveler departs for anoth
er city in the empire he must have the
passport countersigned by the police.
This process continues until he reaches
the frontier, which he cannot cross un
less the passport has been viseed and
stamped by the police. Not Infre
quently tourists are stopped at the
frontier and subjected to serious incon
venience because they have neglected
to comply with the police regulations
respecting passports.
All this red tape causes annoyance
and irritation among tourists, who are
apt to overlook the fact that Russians
as well as foreigners are compelled to
obc-srve these police regulations. It is
the business of the police to know
where everybody lodges. A permit Is
required if a native removes from one
quarter of a town to another. Every
body is registered by the police when
he arrives or departs, and foreigners
when they are in Russia are dealt with
on equal terms with permanent resi
dents. The same system prevails in Tur
key, where it is not practicable for a
foreigner to travel without a passport.
Elsewhere in Europe passports are not
required. They are relics of a bygone
period when communications between
countries were slow and infrequent.
Now that all nations are drawn to
gether by the ties of constant inter
course a passport is out of date except
in countries like Russia, Turkey and
Cuba, where it fits into the police sys
tem of registration.
For the Soldier's Wheel.
A Williamstown (N. Y.) genius has
invented an attachment for bicycles
that he thinks will render them o?
great service in military maneuvers.
The attachment consists of two stee!
supports that drop to the ground when
a brakelike appliance ou the handle
bar is lightly touched. Upon these
cupports the bicycle rests, and the
rider can come to a standstill and use
his hands for any purpose without dis
mounting. When not in use the sup
ports are folded up against the front
forks of the machine. The inventor
claims that by the use of his attach
ment bodies of military wheelmen can
come to a sudden halt and fire on the
enemy and reload their rifles without

On his death bed Napoleon expressed
his conviction that England would end
like the proud republic of Venice.
With perfect composure, he gave his
last directions: "I desire that you will
take my heart, put it in spirits of
wine and carry it to Parma to my dear
Maria Louise: you will tell her that
I never ceased to love her, and relate
to her every particular respecting my
death upon this miserable and dreary
reck. You will tell my mother and
family that the great Napoleon expired
in the most deplorable state, deprived
of everything, abandoned to himself
and to his glory, and that he bequeath
ed with his dying breath to all the
reigning families of Europe the horror
and opprobrium of his death."
The second codicil of his will con
tained the direction which was after
ward complied with: "It is my wish
that my ashes may repose on the
banks of the Seine, in the midst of the
French people whom I love so well."
On the 5th of May. 1S21, he who had
for years kept all Europe in a state
of feverish excitement, terminated his
earthly career.
After lying in state two days, the
body was deposited in a coffin com
posed first of tin lined with white
satin, which having been soldered, was
enclosed in another of mahogany, a
third of lead, and the whole in a fourth
of maghogany secured with iron
crews. After the c?remony, an enor
mous stone was lowered over the body,
resting on a stone wall so as to es
cape the coffin.
On the 12th of May Louis-Philippe
commanded that the ashes cf Napoleon
be conveyed to France. In his com
munication he said: "Henceforth
France, alone, will possess all that re
mains of Napoleon; his tomb, like his
fame, will belong to none but his
At 11 o'clock Dec. 15 the first can
non was heard announcing that the
remains of the emperor had reached
French ground. Amid the vast as
semblage the body was borne by twenty-four
seamen to its last resting place
in the Hotel de Invalides.
So closed the eventful career of the
great Napoleon, whose memory can
only perish with the records of the
III Rent.
In the life cf Whittier it is told how
in the days of the civil war, an old
Quaker, from the New Hampshire
hills, came down for an interview with
the good poet. This Green Mountain
disciple of Fox was the owner of a
sturdy lot of oak trees. The govern
ment had set its eye upon them and
wanted to buy them.
The Quaker knew that the purpose
of the bargain must be to get timber
for the new warships that were build
ing. He haidly knpv whether a sale or
such a purpose was consistent with tha
gospel of peace.
Whittier, either seeing that the
man's mind was pretty thoroughly
made up to the bargain, or else con
sidering that there was such a thing
as pushing a good creed too far, would
only say:
"Well, friend, if thee dost sell any
timber to the United States, be sure
that it is all sound."
The cak from the Quaker's farm was

HE Alabama expe-
SSl riment station has

experiments in in

with tubercles that

of the leguminous
plants. A full re
port Is given in
bulletin S7. The
summary is as fol
A '

Cow peas, clovers, vetches and other
plants, known as leguminous plants or
legumes, when plowed under enrich
the soil by adding nitrogen, a large
proportion of which they have obtain
taincd from the atmosphere.
The enlargements or tubercles on the
roots are the means by which the free
nitrogen of the air is made available to
leguminous plants. If these tubercles
are wanting on a leguminous plant, the
nitrogen of the air is unavailable to
that plant, just as it is to cotton, grass,
end all other higher plants that are not
On some soils these normal tubercles
do not develop on the roots of such le
gumes as have never before been grown
in that locality. The growth of tub
ercles can be induced by adding cer
tain germs to the soil, a process which
is called inoculation.
In Alabama the cow pea is the most
generally satisfactory renovating plant
for summer growth. There is also need
for winter growing leguminous plants,
such as hairy vetch and crimson clov
er, to occupy the land in winter be
tween two sale crops, in order to de
crease washing and leaching of the
toil and to add vegetable matter rich
in nitrogen.
Hairy vetch, without fertilizer, yield
ed on a field where this plant had been
repeatedly grown 17,765 pounds of
green forage, or 4,174 pounds of hay
per acre.
On a field where hairy vetch had
never before been grown and where
the fertilizer applied contained phos
phoric acid and potash, but no nitro
gen, the yield was only 233 pounds ot
hay per acre; on an adjoining and sim
ilar plot, the seed for which were in
oculated with earth from an old vetch
field, the yield of hay was 2,540 pounds,
an increase of 995 per cent following
a treatment which cost nothing except
a small amount of labor. On the in
oculated plot the plants were well sup
plied with tubercles, while on the plot
not treated the plants were bare of
A germ fertilizer, intended to make
available the free nitrogen of the air
by inducing the growth of tubercles on
legumes grown in soils not already
6tocked with the proper forms of germ
life, was purchased lu Germany and
used in Auburn in pot experiments
with hairy vetch, Canada field peas and
crimson clover.
Inoculation with this germ fertilizer
or nitrogen greatly increased the yields
of all cf these plants as compared
with untreated plants.
This increase in thp weight of in
oculated plants, after thorough dry
ing, was as follows:
Hairy vetch, iucreascd by S9 per
Canada field peas, increased by 13S
per cent.
Crimson clover (young plants), in
creased by 14G per cent.
Lupins (tested on only one soil), not
Germ fertilizer prepared for vetch,
was effective on Canada field peas.
Inoculation material procured with
out cash outlay acted like nitrogen,
and greatly increased the yields of
hairy vetch and alfalfa.
Soil fro.n a field where a given le
guminous plant has recently been suc
cessfully grown is an effective inocula
ting material for the same kind of
plant when first sown in a soil not al
ready naturally supplied with the re
quired form of germ life.
The dust adhering to the seed of bur
clover was an effective inoculating
material for alfalfa; the increase in
the first cutting of alfalfa hay follow
ing this inoculation was S3G per cent.
Inoculation for cow peas and lesped
eza was apparently unnecessary in the
soils used in these experiments. In or
near all of these soils these two plants
have been growing for years. Hence
we may Infer that these soils have been
previously inoculated uy germ-laden
dust or by some other natural agency.
In a soil which for many years had
borne no leguminous plants, tubercles
developed without intentional inocula
tion on hairy vetch, Canada field peas,
crimson clover and lupins, as well as
on cow peas and lespedeza. This soil
was more nearly independent of in
oculation than any other soil tested,
and yet even on this soil the increase
in the weight of inoculated plants over
plants not inoculated was 3S per cent,
with hairy vetch 5S per cent, with Can
ada field peas and 79 per cent with
crimson clover.
Many soils are naturally inoculated
as regards the most commonly grown
leguminous plants and hence are not
benefited by artificial inoculation.
SIori About the San .Toso Scale.
Bulletin SC. Alabama Experiment
Station: In the inspection of various
nurseries made in Alabama this spring
several facts of interest regarding this
pest were noted. In nurseries where
all stock was kept moving every tiiree
years, there were no cases of evident
Infestation among the nursery trees.
Although on some of these places ap
ple trees in old orchards and the old
wood of pear grafting stock over five
years of age, bore the San Jose scale. 1
was told by experienced nurserymen
that it would be entirely practicable
to move also all blocks of grafting
stock every three years. On the places
above mentioned this plan will be fol
lowed, and the orchards removed i;n
tire. All of which will practical pre
clude the possibility of the San Jose
or any other scale gaining a footlnld
in these nurseries. Acting on my ad
vice all the nurserymen visited (and

state were inspected) have undertaken
thorough methods of fumigation. Thus,
while the first move will protect the
nurserymen the fumigating will still
further protect purchasers of stock.
Food Plants Other Than Fruit Trees.
The question is often asked as to
what trees other than the fruit trees,
the San Jose scale will attack. Web
Bter, in Ohio, has found it on Bass
wood or Linden. Sumac, Elm, Walnut,
Willow, several Poplars. Catalpa.
Chestnut, Osage. Orange and Snowball
A specimen of Cotoneaster. ccrninj;
from a Long Island nursery and sent
to Webster for examination, was found
to be very badly infested.
Varieties of Fruits Possessing Im
munity. Inquiries have frequently
come to me as to whether there were
any varieties of the various fruits pos
sessing immunity from the attacks of
this pest I have heard of but one,
and that wa3 reported by Webster. He
says: "The Early Richmond Cherry I
believe to be exempt from attack, as I
have found trees whose branches in
terlocked with those of a pear that had
been killed by the scale, yet the cherry
was uninfested; and in two cases that
came under my observation, where
this variety of cherry had been grafted
upon mahaleb stock, and shoots had
sprung up from below the graft, the
shoots were badly infested with scale,
while none at all could be found on
the trees themselves.
Who Should Kngaj-e In Dairying.
There is a great deal of reckless and
extravagant advice given in regard to
the advantages of dairying over other
phases of agricultural production, says
a writer in Southern Farm Gazette.
While good profits are being made by
many dairymen it remains a fact that
a great deal of the dairying practiced
does not pay as well as some other
lines of work might. Where a man
lives near a good market and posses
ses the ability to properly manage a
dairy we know of no business that of
fers more pleasant or profitable v:ork;
but few men are fitted for dairy work
and not many women are likely to
fancy the drudgery and attention re
quired to operate a dairy successfully.
The man who engages in the dairy
business and expects to make a living
out of it without work is almost cer
tain to be disappointed. With good
facilities, careful and constant atten
tion and a special fitness for the busi
ness a fair profit may be expected. On
the other hand while some are sure to
make a success of it under the most
adverse conditions others will as cer
tainly fail under the most favorable
circumstances. Where dairying can be
made most profitable and where it
should be most encouraged Is on the
farms where mixed farming is prac
ticed. A few cows can be made to pay
handsomely on any ordinary farm and
besides will afford one of the rarest
but greatest luxuries, good milk and
butter for family use.
Long: Inland Cranberries.
The cranberry growers of the east
ern end of Long Island are now har
vesting the crop of 1S97, which prom
ises to be an unusually large one. The
berries are also very fine, being large
and sound and have au excellent flavor.
This section of the island has quite a
number of marshes, most all of them
being under constant cultivation and
growing large quantities of berries.
Long Island cranberries always find a
ready market and at a good figure. The
price pii this year will undoubtedly
be at least $3 per bushel. A cranberry
marsh needs little or no fertilizer, the
most essential point being to see that
the marsh is flooded with water at the
right time and drawn off with equal
precision. In consequence of tfc:s there
is very little labor and less still of
capital needed in conducting a cran
berry marsh after the ground is pre
pared, the plants set out, and the
marsh is in growing condition. This, of
couse, is expected during the harvest
ing period, wheu for the space of six
weeks or two months the owner is busy
looking after his crop. The largest
cranberry grower on the island is Syl
vester N. Woodhull of Rivcrhcad.
About twelve years ago he prepared
twenty-five acres of seemingly value
less low land as a cranberry field and
it now yields as great a profit as any
equal acreage in Suffolk county. This
year Mr. Woodhull will spend about
$2,000 in harvesting his crop, while as
a return he will secure upward of ?9,
000. Long Islander.
Value of (Jooil Fruit.
Ripe apples are especially healthy
and children may eat them without
danger. Seme doctors say that an ap
ple at bedtime produces sleep, says
Central States Fruit Grower. Pears
are more savory than apples, but not
so healthy, unless cooked. Prunes
have medical qualities which cannot
be denied. They are better cooked
however. Apricots are also more
healthy cooked than raw. Peaches are
very healthy. The most healthy of
all fruit, however, are grapes. Con
sumption has been cured by grapes
when every other remedy has failed.
Cherries may be eaten, as they fre
quently restore health and strength to
the weak. Strawberries, though a cold
fruit, have a virtue of healing rheuma
tism. Gooseberries and currants are
best cooked. Figs are also excellent.
They were in great favor with ancient
Roman ladies, who always ate them
before breakfast. Pineapples are said
to be the best cure for dyspepsia yet
known. Nuts of all kinds are indi
gestible. Oranges are also excellent as
a cure for dyspepsia. Lenions produce
cheerfulness and prolong life.
MHsoiiri State Horticultural Socletv.
The fortieth annual meeting of the
society will be held in Moberly, Mo.,
December 7, S and 9, 1S97, in the court
house. Prospects point to our usual
good meeting here, and we wish to
urge all our earnest fruit growers to
arrange for the meeting and be there.
Some of the best men of the state will
attend, and it will pay ycu to get their
experience. Premiums will be given
on all fruits and flowers, and we urge
you to save good specimens of apples
for that display. Railroads have
promised us rates, providing one hun
dred hold certificates; hence, it is nec
essary that you secure certificates
when you buy your tickets. Hotels
will give rates of l and $1.50 per day.
Some prominent fruit growers of other
states will be present. A good pro
gramme is in preparation, and you can
not afford to miss this meeting.
L. A. Goodman, Secretary.
The department of agriculture has
been officially notified of the appoint
ment by New South Wales of a veteri
narv inspector at San Francisco to ex
amine and grant certificates of health
fr American horses to be shipped to
Australia from that port. An appoint
ment of a veterinary inspector at New
York in behalf of Australia was
made by New South Wales to facilitate
the shipment of cattle, sheep and swine
to that country from New York only.
The department is further informed
that American-bred merinos are the
"premium" sheep in Australia, and
that the breeding and shipping of such
sheep to that market is becoming more
and more popular.
Local Adaptabilities. Professor L.
H. Bailey says: "It is possible that each
distinct type of fruit varieties has pref
erences of land and location, and it
will be the business of coming genera
tions to determine what these pecul
iarities are." He thinks that in time
local and special sorts will tend to
drive out of local culture general and
cosmopolitan varieties.
