Alfalfa in Winter.
Alfalfa is a dry weather plant even in
winter. In order to note the effect of a
covering of snow upon tbe alfalfa, a slat
fence was stretched across a forty acre
alfalfa field on the U. S. Experiment
Station Farm at Lincoln in the fall.
The effect was to keep a snow drift
along one side of the fence a consider
able portion of the winter. Where the
drift lay the alfalfa is badly killed out
while further away from the fence where
the wind had full sweep it is in good
condition. It is also noticeable that the
alfalfa in the draws suffered more dur
ing the winter than that on high ground.
These and other observations point to
the conclusion that dryness especially
of the soil during the winter is the
most favorable condition for the alfalfa
plant. In the eastern part of the state
it is undoubtedly better to sow alfalfa
on high land rather than on land that is
likely to be wet when it freezes in the
winter. In one of the alfalfa fields on
the Station Farm there is a low piece of
ground on which it has been impossible
to maintain a stand of alfalfa. This
place has been seeded to Alsike clover
to the growth of which it has proven to
be quite well adapted. The spot also
contains considerable alkali. University

Who would dare hazard an opinion
on what the condition of the country
would be today had Bryan and his free
trade and free silver been successful in j
1896? Imagine this country with a
war on its hands, a depreciated dollar,

Contrast the condition of tho country
under democratic rule and the Wilson
free trade revenue measure, when the
government was borrowing money to
pay running expenses, and the condi

and the Dingley tariff, when the coun

Nearly All the Sovereicus of Europe Axa
Fond of Cauine I'eU.
Nearly every one of the sovereign?
of Europe, it appeara, has one or more
pot dogs. The collies of Queen Victoria,
tho fox terriers of Princess Beatrice,
with Jock us prime favorite, ?ro known
at least by hearsay to everybody.
The emperor of Run-in is also a great
lover of dogs. A London paper reports
that he is always accompanied in his
walks by a couple cf fine Danish
hounds, whose strength and vigilance
their master considers his best safe
guard. The grave czar is often seen
playing with these monster pets. He
himself has taught them their tricks,
and they are nearly always about him.
The Ling cf Greece shares the czar's
taste for the Danish hounds, which are
as intelligent as they are strong, and
which, with hardly a bark to announce
their intentions, will fly at the throat
of any one whom their master may
point out to them in case of need.
When the empress of Austria goes on
her long walks or rides, several pet
dogs always accompany her. But per
haps the most widely known of all the
"royal dogs" of the present day is
Black, the pet dog of the Russian Grand
Duke Alexis.
Black is a sportsman 's dog, of no
very aristocratic breed. Indeed, if the
truth must be told, he is a member of
tbe race of mongrels which the fisher
men in the south of France take out to
sea, employing them to recapture any
wily fish that may fall through the
meshes of their nets or slip suddenly
back into its element after it has been
once landed ou board tho barge. Black
is still rejoicing in the days of his
youth, bat his record, not only as a
common fisherman but as a "fisher of
men, " is already great, for he has saved
no fewer than six persons from a watery
. Some three or four years ago tbe
Grand Duke Alexis was staying at
Biarritz. One stormy night he went out
on the cliff to get a view of the angry
sea. A boat was just being wrecked be
low, and he saw a dog dashing with
angry growls and barks into the water
and bringing to land, one by one, three
drowning men, while the crowd cheered
the brave mongrel to the echo. The
grand dnke approached to caress tbe
dog, and the animal's master then
offered Black to him, refusing to accept
any payment. St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The fifing fox is a very curious in
habitant of tbe forest uear Moreton bay,
in east Australia. It lives in flocks and
moves generally toward tbe dnsk of the
evening, and the noise produced by the
heavy flapping of the so called wings is
very singular. The flocks like quiet
places, where there are large araacariaa
pine trees, with an underwood of scrub
and creepers. Tbe fcxes hang in vast
umbers from horizontal branches of
the pine trees.
When there is a clear space among
the trees, an enormous number of the
animals may be seen, and their noise
can be beard, for directly they see any
thing nnnsual they utter a short bark,
something liketbe sound made by young
rooks. Often every branch is crowded,
and tbe young foxes are seen either flap
ping their wings and holding on with
their hind feet and with their heads
downward or snarling and fighting for
Suddenly the whole take to flight
and flap their furry, winglike sides and
wheel around like heavy birds. Many
fly with their young holding on to them.
The creature is not a true fox, and
there is a fold of skin which reaches
from the fore to tbe hind legs. This is
called tbe wing, and it enables the
pteropns, as tbe animal is called, to
float and turn in tbo air. Philadelphia

One of tbe Kirghiz came into my
tent, and, squatting down, began to play
tbe kaumuEs, a three stringed instru
ment played with the fingers. The
musio was monotonous and of a melan
cboly cadence, but it harmonized well
with the surroundings and the moods
they inspired. In a word, it wss typic
ally Asiatic. I sat and listened to it
with pleasure, giving my imagination
captive to the mnsic, the soft moaning
of tbe night wind, the gentle crackle of
tbe fire. How many and many a night
did I not spend thus during the long
years that followed listening to the
dreamy sounds of that primitive Kir
ghiz instrument!
How many a dark, solitary winter
afternoon did I not while away in this
foolish, fashion! In course of time 1
grew accustomed to tbe kaumuss and
derived as much pleasure from it as the
Kirghiz did themselves. In fact, I grew
fond of it Its soothing musio carried
my mind away into the fairy realms of
day dreams. My thoughts flew far away
to my home amid the dark pine woods

Lifeboats the World.
The lifeboat service is one of tbe very
noblest of philanthropic institutions,
and many civilized nations pay special
attention to these means for the zesene
of perishing mariners. England's life
boat service is a voluntary one. The
Boyal National Lifeboat institution,
which controls the bulk of British life
boats, was founded in 1824. It now bas
over 300 lifeboats on the shores of tho
kingdom, and has been instrumental iu
saving nearly 30,000 lives. The French
lifeboat service was established in 1805,
and has 83 stations, while it has been
tbe means of saving over 900 vessels
and 7,500 lives.
The French service has one great ad
vantage over ours. It is that tbe public
board of works always builds the fir&t
lifeboat house at eaoh station aa it is
established, consequently relieving tbe
service of a great outlay. The German
service was established in 1865, and
has 104 lifeboat stations. Tbe United
States has 233 lifeboat stations. The
cost of the United States service is
about 290,000 a year. London Tit

Patriotic Greek Boiler Maker by
Seme of IJacle Sam'a Sailors "With
Whom He Hai Shlayea.
"About four years ago tbe cruiser on
which I was serving shipped a boiler
maker while we were on the Mediter
ranean station," said a Washington
chief petty officer of the navy, now on
leave of absence. ' "Our former boiler
maker's time expired while we were at
Gibraltar, and as be was not in good
physical shape be wasn't re-enlisted,
but took bis discbarge and returned to
the United States by mail steamer. So
the ship was shy a boiler maker, a very
important and necessary petty officer
down below in tbe engineer's depart
ment and when tbe ship pulled into
Naples harbor the chief engineer went
ashore to Eee if be couldn't dig np a
boiler maker.
"There's a clause in the enlistment
regulations permitting commanding
officers to ship necessary men on foreign
stations In short handed emergencies.
The chief engineer brought back to the
ship a Greek named Charlie Mara The
man couldn't speak any English to
speak of but ho was a good man at
the boiler making business, and be was
duly shipped aboard of us for threo
years. He was a wild, hairy looking
lot, Maro was, and be got a good deal
of a laugh at tbe hands of tho crew, es
pecially the yonnger fellows, from the
time he first came over the side.
"Maro thought that there wasn't
any other country on the map except
Greece. He thought that the 'Greeks
man' was the hottest kind of a tamale
when it came to scrapping by land or
sea, and after he got hold of enough
English to mako himself understood he
used to take some of tbo young appren
tice boys up into tho eyes of the ship
and tell them with many gesticulations
and fnrious words of the different kinds
of tar Greece would knock out of Turkey
if the two countries ever came to an
open rupture.
"The ship was around on tbe Pacifio
station when the war broke ont between
Greece and Turkey. When the news of
tbe outbreak of the war got to Maro, our
boiler maker, he nearly had heart dis
ease and a whole lot of other sudden
things from pure excitement He just
couldn't hold himself in, he looked so
"'Da Greeka man willa bim ! biml
bim! da Turka man,' was Charlie
Maro's way of putting it, and he didn't
see that the Turk bad a ghost of a show.
All bands forward encouraged him in
the belief. They all acquiesced in ex
pressing the belief to Maro that Greece
would simply eat Turkey up. Then a
bo'sun's mate who knew bow to crack
the most impossible kind of steers with
a face as solemn and wooden as an In
dian's took Charlie in hand and told
him some things. He told Maro that the
United States was so much in sympathy
with Greece in tbe struggle with Turkey
that tbe navy department had decided
to turn over all of the ships of the
American navy to Greek commanders.
"'Here's a big chance for yon,
Maro,' tbe bo'sun's mate told Mara
'Yon just want to work your edge.
Here yon are already shipped on this
cruiser, and it's dollars to doughnuts
that if you ask for the command of this
ship in order to take her over to Greece
to mix it np with the Turks you'll get
it hands down. Better try it on.'
"That idea impressed Maro a heap.
He asked the bo'sun's mate whom he'd
have to apply to to get command of the
" 'Why, to the commanding officer,
of course,' was the reply.
"Maro was tremendously important
for a day or so whilo he let this huge
idea grow within him, and he bullied
the men detailed to work with him
down below in the boiler room a good
deal. The bos'n's mate kept working
bim np to it, and finally Maro appeared
on deck one morning togged out in bis
very best mustering suit of bluejacket
clothes and went np to the officer of the
deck and asked permission to see the
commanding officer at the mast The
officer of tbe deck was rather surprised
to see the man all done up in his mus
tering togs when all hands were at
work, but, as he is obliged to do when
an enlisted man requests permission to
see the commanding officer, he sent
word to the skipper, who soon emerged
from bis cabin and appeared at 'the
" 'Well, my man?4 said the skipper
to Maro, who stood bolt upright and
sainted with a flourish.
" 'Sare,' said Maro to the skipper, 'I
have-a da honor to her-a-by taka da com
mand of a da ship.'
" 'Hey?' said tbe commanding offi
cer, putting his hand to his ear and
looking as if he hadn't heard aright
" 'Da ship,' repeated Mara 'For-a
da navee of -a Hellas da Greeka navee
I bava da honor to taka da command.'
"All hands among the enlisted men
were np on the to'gallant fo'o'sle tak
ing the thing in, and they broke into a
roar that you could have heard five
cable lengths' distance. Maro heard it
and, suspecting that his confidence had
been abused, got red and flabbergasted.
He suddenly bolted for the engine room
hatch and made his way below, and it
took three marines to drag him aft to
the sick bay, where the surgeon, at the
skipper's command, gave Maro a half
hour's examination as to bis sanity.
Maro was game enough to decline to
give the name of the enlisted man who
had told him he was eligible for the
command of the ship upon its being
'turned into tbe navy of Greece,' but
the thrashing he gave that bos'n's
mate when he got him 'on the beach'
was certainly savage." Washington

ceremony, as tbe wedding procession
marched down the aisle, tbe organist
played the wedding march from "Lo

addressed the wondering assembly thus:

ing this, but I am not to blame. It is
my mental organization which baa be

tbe critical nature of my duties."
Then he drew from the pocket of his

score of "Lohengrin." Opening it at
the march, be went over to the organist
and said:
