Inatoad of replying , the son of i

in deprecating accents , "I was marriot

"It ia , I assure you , " replied the young

it. The paper wna cashed by the clerk
nnd the money was handed to the grate

At this juncluro Mr. D. McOIaskoy ,
proprietor of the house , stopped up to
the desk. Mr. Nickorson was explaining
to Mr. S terra that ho could call on the

quired : "Do you know this man , Mr.

"Just take my advice nnd got your

"If you question my honesty , Mr.

There ia not. much use in tolling the
'armor continually that ho should study a
Hvcraificatloii of products unlcsa ho can
given from time to time some praotia-
lcal hints as to the manner of divorelfi-
atiou. In some sections ho haa already
Uncovered , in others ho is rapidly lencu-
ing , that exclusive devotion , to a single
rep la not a winning policy. In bad
yoara It leaves him short aa to amount of )0
product ; in good seasons it makes him n
competitor in n market of ruinously low
prices. This has boon the experience of s
the great majority of those who yMdod >
the prevailing idea that the northwest-
ara farmer could raise wheat and nothing
but wheat. But is there is to bo a change
is of no uio to preach diversification in
Konor l terms. What the farmer wants to
know is specifically to what ho should
devote n portion of his attention and
labors. A great donl haa boon said about Lt
iho advantages and profits of stock rais :
ing nnd dairying , and n great deal moro
remains to bo said. But if wo are to
hare diversified agriculture and on no
other foundation can a solid , enduring ,
prospsrous agricultural interest bo built t
up wo want more items than this , Wo
want a good long list of'occupations and
of products among which the labor of the
fanner may bo distributed with safety
and profit , To point out some of those
and the opportunities they have to oiler
is to form n service for the
farmer of the northwest ,
In this connection it will bo well for
our ugriculturista to give n little thought
to thu progreea and the profits of llax
culture ; an industry which has ( jrown
with extraordinary rapidity in Una sec.
lion , nnd promises to occupy permanent
ly mi important place in our agriculture. us
The growing of flax , if not itself carried
to extremes , oilers to the farmer ono
avenue of escape from the dangers which p
gather about the reliance upon anv one
product. 1'lax culturu in the United
States i a very recent innovation. Up to
about 18U5 , such mills tor the manu'.not.
uro of lineeod oil na existed lu this '
country were largely supplied with thol
raw material by imporlations from Eng
land and the Ktst. The flax industry
began wilh the efforts of the mill mon tc
obtain a domcslio supply , and for Ihi
purpoto quantities of need wcr
distributed among the farmers and th
cultivation of the plant urged by
every argument that rnight bo able t
overcome their constitutional consorva
tism. As western mills came Into existence
tonco the same policy was followed , an
loans or oven gifts of seed were in ado tc
farmers to induce shorn to assist in th
ontorprlso. It took but a few years t
convince them by money returns tha
they had found a profitable occupation
and the cultivation of flax has annually
covered a wider area and been moro as
siduously followed. The plant has boot
found to flourish remarkably in the rid
now soil of the northwestern states , one
the product ot seed has now reached pro
portions which astonish these who hav
not made a study of the subject. Esti
mates of the entire crop of the Unitot
Stales vary widely. It is assumed
however , that last year's yield ag
grogatcd from 0,500,000 to 7,250 ,
000 bushels , and that thi
crop now being marketed will , by roasot
of an Increased acreage of 25 per con
and a botlor average yield , roach from
8,000,000 to 9,000,000 bushols. Bat ti
most remarkable feature of this produc
lion is thai the crop of Minnesota am
Dakota comprises probably one-half the
entire yield of the United States. Ii
Minnesota the crop ia put at 2,000,001
bushels while that of Southern Dakota
alone will roach from 2,000,000 to 3,000 ,
000 bushels. The reasons for this sudden
springing into prominence Ho very near
the surface. In casting about for aomo
product by which to supply the need o : "
diversifying agriculture , farmers were induced
ducod to make a trial of flax. The ro
suits were such as to encourage thorn to
the utmost. A feature of peculiar adap
tation to a now country in its culture is
the fact that it can bo grown 1m
mediately after breaking. Usually the
work of breaking ground is unproduc
tive except as a preparation for the future
turo , but it is foundthat , flax can bo sown
as a breaking crop with excellent results
the first year's yield frequently paying
all expenses , and sometimes leaving
: omfpatablo magin toward paying for the
land itself. The plant yields hero moro
abundantly than in the cast , producing
on the average an equal or greater num
bar of bushels to the aero than wheat
An the prlco this season has remained
sloady at f rom § 1 to $115 per bushel
with a crop of from ilftoon to oightebi
bushels per aero , It is not to bo wondorot
at that farmers who have tried thn 02
iicrimont of flax culture are remarkably
wull satisfied with the pecuniary ro
There Is no reason why the culture ol
this plant should not bo much moro uni
versal than it ia. Our soil is excellent ! '
ulaptod to it , it thrives well in northern
atltudos , producing abundantly across
our northern boundary , and it is ever
CBS aubjoct than grain products to
climatic clangors. About the only thinj
io bo feared is an excessively wet harvea
season , which ruins the aood by soften
ing and decay. But this is lots threat
ening than the dangers which menace
other products , while Iho prospect that
shore will bo a constant demand for flax
seed at good prices is excellent. Wo
still import largo quantities of oil and
seed which it is possible for our farmers
to produce , while it is probable thai
other portions of the plant wll. "
30 more } { carefully utilized In the
'uturo than at present. The fiber , else
where considered the most valuable portion
tion , ia hero allowed , to a great extent ,
to go to waste. A few mills for manu
facturing it into tow to bo used for up
holstering purposes exist in the North
Treat , and the fiber for this purpose is
worth faom § 20 to $25 per ton. But
there seems to bo no reasons why , with
careful cultivation nnd harvesting , the
same plant should not furnish the average
luantity of seed and abe supply the lon _
libers that are used in the manufacture of
cordago. The residuum of the grain
after the oil ha ? boon expressed was for-
morlyloithor discarded or exported for
what it would bring. Its value for mis-
ng Is norr beginning to bo appreciated by tl
American feeders , and dairymen are glade tlE
o purchase it for their stock. The whole E
iroduct of the linseed oil mill at St. Paul
a thus disposed of in the dairying dia-
ricta juost of Chicago. The

nako it a moat important adjunct to the In

Now York Sun.
TonoNTO. Sept. 25. The name o
Wra. M. Scott , who died here the otho
day , was heralded from ono end of th
continent to the other about two year
ngo , when ho won the sum of $150,00' '
in a single game of pokor. Scott was
native of Newburg , N. Y. , where h
lived when ho played his famous game
The players in the game were three well
Known citizens of that town , ono o
whom , the victim , had just become hoi
to half a million. This waa n man name
Wood. Scott also had money , arm wn
surrounded by wealthy friends. Th
third member of the parly was n forme
sunday-school teacher , a dentist name
Dr. M. M Hedges. It was shown after
ward that the poker pot was adroilly rui
up to $150,000 on bets of at least $5,00
each. The dealer was Dr. Hedges , th
shrewdest player of the three. A
ho deftly dropped the last cnn
on the little round tabl
ho called out to know -what th
other players -wanted. Scott said ho
wanted only ono card. Of courao th
question nroao , Was ho drnwing to fill o
straight or a flush ? Wood applied to th
dealer _ f or two cards , and the question to
bo decided in his case by the others was
whether ho was drawing to got four of a
kind or to fill a full hand , a straight or n
flush. Hedges rested on his oars. Ho
had enough , which was of course interpreted
protod to moan that it waa anything
from n straight or a full hand up to r
straight flush. The drawing over , tin
faces of the three brightened up , and i
ia safe to say that never before had three
lonely mon in a little game hold three
such hands of cards. When the betting
had got up to § 0,000 or $8,000 Woct
wanted to stop , "because"aa ho said"
"thoro ia not ono of ua that will pay i
wojoao such an amount. " It wns not
stopped , however. After a little
Hodges , who had stood pat with his
hand and engaged in the hotting na i
went nroud until the pot wns pushed up
to $150,000 , ealledScott. Then came tholay
down , and afterwards Hedges' memorable -
blo worda to Wood , "Thia la dreadful
ain't it ? " Of course the simple mindec
Wood was taken in. As ho had received n
fine hand that would have nerved ovei
the moat timid gambler to the highest
betting point. It was four of n kind anc
acea at that. In any ordinary game i
bold hotter would have done aa Weuc
did , go to the bitter end. Scott's ono
drawn card waa the corn-breaker. Did
it fill n full hand or a straight'waa / the
question that ran through Wood's mind
continuously , while the chips , represent
ing thousands of dollars , were being
thrown into the pot. "Of courao , If it's
either my four acea will boat him , " ho
argued , "while It isn't possible that
Hedges drew better than four acooln the
deal. "
When the end came Weed waa struck
almost dumb. His four ncoa were worth
less , for while Hodpos stood pat on
king full , Scott had drawn in the one
card ho took the right color and the a
proper number of spots to raako his
hand a straight flush , the only thing that
would down four aces. Weed attempted
to compromise by paying $2,000. Ho
then thought the game had boon honcat-
ly conducted. But Scott wns obdurate
and would not settle. Ho not only
wanted the whole amount , but ho want
ed then and there. , or at least something
thai would bind Wood nnd his fortune
to the paymontof the debt. If ho didn't
got it , ho said , ho would pablish Wood
nil over town , .Qhero his family stooo
high in socio his wn more than
Wood could BtSiTV , iftid at theanino time ,
it ia said , there wore other thinga thai
were pulled to bring him to terms.
Hedges told Scott to latira a minute , and
ho wont oat. Then Hedges approached
Wood with smiles and offered hia assist
ance. Of courao , Hodgea wna nlao a
loaor of Sl'30,000 ' to Scott , which made
the Inttor's winnings on the game 3300-
000 , bur , ns 'A could not l > o paid , , probab
ly no notice waa taken of such a trifling
"This ia- dreadful , ain't it'1 said
Hedges , nnd added : "There is only ono
way wo can got the money back. " Then >
ho proposed to Weed to inr.rlc the cards
and go at it again nnd clean Scott out.
Ho took his linifo nnd marked n card
with it. "Now , " said ho , "wo can tell l
thia wny which nro the acea-und which
wo the kings , and wo'll f ot zqunro wltit
liitn that way. "
"No , " saidWaod , who still innocently
Dolioved ho had boon treated fairly nnd1
loncatly ; "no if I can't pla.7 a aquara
amo 1 won't ploy nt nil. " The doctor
aa now nt his wits end , nnd the victim
f the plot walked out. At the bottom
if'tho stops which led to tho- street ho
not Scott , who was still stubborn. His
iloading with Seott was Jnavailirig.
iVood said to him that ho'd always been
tin friend and he didn't tiling-it square '
oxast all of ihe $150,000 Jrom him.
Fhoy parted tha knight with no under ,
landing nbout the payment of the
nonoy ,
The next morning Wood met HoJgea-
md : Scott in tho-Hodges laboratorywllern
ho garao link loon played , Scott still
lomandod payment of the full amount
wod. Weed did not know what to-do.
EIo daircd not t k ndvico for-foar of pub- ,
icily , and the only wny ho-could see out
f the matter na to foot tho-bill , ond'to
lot it bo the last , Hodges stood rondy to >

VVooiti "P bably Hodges will1 never

the watermelon farms there were a largo
number of unauthorized absences. Ono
evening the guard observed a private ap
preaching , who was staggering along under <
dor the combined load of much convivial
ity and an onormovia watermelon under
each arm. "Who goes Ihorol" "Er hl <

vance , friend , and give the countersign. '
"Hain't got no hie countersign , '
amiably replied the private ; but I'll or
hie give you or warmillon. " Pretty
soon the olllcor of the day came around ,
and . said to the eonlinpl , who was absorber
in munching a hugo piece of watermelon
stuck on the end of his bayouot , "Die
Perkins pass you just now ? " "Yes , air. '
"Did ho give the countersign ? " inquired
the lieutenant , taking n bite himself , as
Iho man presonlod arms. "Well , no ,
sir , " said the sentinel , confidentially :
"tho password was 'cholera , ' but ho said
'watormolon , ' ao 1 passed him and put
the other half in your tent. " "Did , oh ? "
muted thocfllcor. "Hum ! watermelon ,
eh ? Well , I guess that was near
enough ? "
' Isn't that MM. Holmes ? " I thought
the doctors gave her up. She looks well

there has boon less demand from specula
tors , but a fair demand from investors

ing material and are securing their homoa
at much less coat than will bo possible rv
year hence. Speculators , too , can buy
real estate cheaper now and ought tj take
