JUDGE I'AUKini'S ' COIJUT.
In the county court yesterday the case
of Fire Warden Nowbury against City
Clerk Mauley and F. M- Hall was given
a hearing. In Juno last Warden Now-
bnry gave a written order on the city
clot kin favor of F. M. Hall for | 23 a
month to bo paid by the clerk from his
Balary as warden , the order running for
a year. In January Mr. Nowbury gave
to the city clerk a verbal order to cease
paying over the $23 a month , but the city
clerk continued to honor the written
order. The case now is brought by the
warden to recover from the clerk the
nionov paid the lirst of the month con
trary to verbal orders. The judge has
witheld his decision until Monday.
SENT TO Till : IIUFOKM SCHOOL.
Yesterday Judge Parker heard the ease
against the fifteen-year-old boy Walter
Sheldon who for the second time was in
the court on a charge , of petit larceny.
The father of the boy also complained
that ho was wholly unable to control
him , that ho was disorderly , ran away
and was a tit subject for correction. The
examination of the lad developed all
these facts , and the sentence of the court
was that ho bo taken to the reform school
* for the remainder of his minority as a lit
- f Hiibjcct for that Institution. Deputy
Bhoriil' Langdon took the young ollendor
in charge and departed westward on the

Dorp or Shallow Corn Culture.
A Harlnn county ( Nebraska ) corre
spondent of the Prairlo Farmer has this
to say on the subject of deep or shallow
corn culture : Probably nint'tecn-twentl-
eths of the farmers who raise corn bo-
hove that "deep cultivation is necessary
to its perfection. " Some think that dur
ing dry weather especially they must cul
tivate deep ; that corn roots attain only
about eight to ton Inchon in length at
maturity ; while others bdiovo that corn
has moro roots than needed , and advo
cate cutting oft" a largo portion of these.
In fact , when the plant is from four to six
inches high , the roots are from fifteen to
eighteen inches long. Soon after the
roots invariably meet in the row , and
often crowd each other , from thrco to
four inches under the surface. The
writer traced a corn root last season
( when the com was about thirty inches
high ) , twenty-three feet from the hill.
That the root Is tlio llfo of the plant , no
one will dispute. These who have taken
the trouble to examine the roots of corn
know that they form a complete network
of fibrous roots ; and surely A plant must
have an abundance of roots to mature its
gram in from ninety to ono hundred
days. What has given people the idea
of deep cultivation ? It is probably this :
If the shovel plow is used and not run
pretty deep it will do no good. It will
not kill the weeds and grass. n\\i\ \ \ \ with
j S ; j10-ro cnnno'c Uo g)0i ,
corn. Hence , as deep plowing will kill
ho weeds , and not totally kill the corn ,
nany think it the best method.
The writer saw a field of corn last sea-
on that did not have a cultivator put
nto it until it was moro than twenty
nehos high. This field had been bar-
owed with an ordinary slanting tooth
larrow , from the time it was planted
intil it attained that height not when
ho ground was wet , not early in the
norning or late in the ovoninc at such
lines the plant is tender and brittle , and
iablc to "break but in the heat of the
lay , when ono can kill weeds and not in-
'tiro the corn. This field was absolutely
TOO from weeds and grass when the har
rowing was discontinued , and in about
ten days or two weeks , it was "laid by"
with an ordinary cultivator , sot so ns to
lot go over tlireo to four inches deep.
This man cut very few , if any corn roots.
His field of forty acres yielded eighty
nishels per aero , whllo a field adjoining
that was cultivated deep , and kept clear
with an equal stand , and similar condi
tions with icgard to soil and previous
cultivation , yielded but fortythrco bush
els per acre. All admit that fall plowing
lolds moisture longer than spring plow-
ng , the soil becomes compact , and if
slightly worked on the surface , so as to
prevent "baking , " the warm sun will
Iraw the moisture nearly to the surface.
tt will cost but , \ trillo to try this experi
ment on a small piece adjoining the regu
lar crop. A slanting tooth harrow will
not injure young corn plants , if worked
in the heat of the day.
Rcnrflt of Working by System.
Every farmer who would work to the
best advantage should employ a portion
of his leisure hours in the winter in de
ciding what crops ho will prow on each
field , and the particular method of culti
vation. By thus laying his plans for the
future , when he has time for deliberate
thought , ho will bo likely to make loss
mistakes than if no plans are laid until
the busy season arrives , and ho is obliged
to act without time for reflection. There
nro many reasons why it is best to mature
plans in advance. If gives time for re-
llcction and review , and the changes of
any details that careful examination
may suggest , and it also gives tinio for
preparation without haste , which , as a
rule , is the saving of both timn and
mono } ' ; the seed may be purchased while
passing the seed store on other business ,
and thus save a special trip in the
busy season , and by purchasing curly in
the season better scad can often bo se
cured , 51 not at a lower price. When
the seed is purchased early in the season
its germinating qualities may bo tried by
planting a few seeds In a box set in a
warm place ; it Is well to do this oven if
the seeds arc grown on the farm , and
thus make sure that a crop will not bo
lost by planting bud seed.
By deciding what crops it is the best to
grow early in the season , when the busy
season comes the farmer has only to fol
low out the general plans cnroiully laid
out during the winter , thus loavjjig his
mind free to plan Jhe details as the sea
son adyancns. A farm thus run will
always bo conducted to much better ad
vantage than ono that is run without any
plans , except what are made at the latest
The hardest task the farmer's wife is
called upon to perform is to raise the
young tnrkoys. It is not difficult to hatch
them , as the turkey hen is a persistent
sitter and docs her duty faithfully , while
thn eggs are nearly always fertile. A
sinfrlo union of the gobbler and hen will
fertilize all the eggs the lion may lay
during the season. Like the human
being , the turkey is very feeble and tender -
dor when young , but hardy when ma
tured. The most important matter is to
never allow them to get wot. They must
not oven bo allowed on damp ground ,
especially at night. Keep them , with the
hen , in a roomy run , dry and sheltered
from winds for a wook. Then let thorn
out on clear days after the dow is oil' in
the morning , and shut them up early at
night. Food on ground oats and milk.
cooked together us bread , with chopped
onion in it , and give finely chopped moat
and bono meal at least oneo a day , Feed
often , and vary the food to any thing they
will oat after they are a week old , but
always feed meat. Always look out for
lice , as that is often the cause of young
turkeys dying off. Give chopped eggs
the first two days , in addition to the other
food , but give nothing the lirst thirty-six
hours. Do not lot the hen ramble too far
or tire the young ones , \Vatch them
closely till they are past danger.
I'roduoo n Greater Variety.
Practical Farmer : During the pres
ent season of comparative leisure on the
farm it will bo well for cultivators , whllo
maturing tuoir plans for thoonsulng sum
mer , to consider whether it would not bo
advisable to ralso a greater variety ol
crops than formerly. Farmers who
practice "mixed husbandry" are gener
ally moro successful , especially these re
mote from good markets , than such who
rely upon ono or two crops , or specialties ,
and then , instead of growing them , as
they might easily do , purchase several
soif products for consumption In their
families. Alluding to this subject a
Pacific coast journal tersely remarks
that "in the matter of production the
Californiun is peculiar. Ho will plant
100 to COO acres in grain , and then purchase
chase- his table vegetables from a neigh
bor. Ho will pasture a herd of cattle ,
and rely upon the peddler for the milk
that supplies his family. Ho will go
abroad for goods that ho could as well
manufacture at homo. And thus it goes
through numerous branches of the
The truthfulness of the foregoing as
sertions is of wide application , und by no
means confined to C'alifornians. It ap
plies with almost equal force to the farm
ers of other and moro widely separated
portions of the country , cast and west ,
north and south , and nptablyto those of
the latter region , in some parts ot which
so much attention Is given to cotton-
growing that other valuable crops are
almost entirely neglected. Eyen in the
Now England und middle states very few
farmers grow one-half the variety of
products they could and should for their
I own use or that might bo profitably mar
kotrd. TJspdcially Is tills true In regard
to fruits , vegetables , etc. , tha general
neglect of which by many cultivators
seems unaccountable. The families of
men who , hating suitable soil , in n favor
able climate' , from year to year dcfct the
planting of ( ruit trees , and rarely , if over ,
rals"o any vegetables lit for table use , are
surely to bo jilticd on account of thnlr
deprivation of what might bo
easily supplied , while the heads
of such unfortunate families
should bo liable to indictment for neg
lecting to discharge their duty in the
premises. Such husbandmen must not
only lack In thu true Miirit of progress ,
but bo deficient'in knowledge and appre
ciation of the bonolits derivable from the
cause indicated , for If they realized how
much of health ami comfort might onia-
nato from the frequent use of fruits and
vegetables they would certainly devote
moro attention to their production for
that purpose , to say nothing of raising
them for the market , which latter , it is
needless to add , is n profitable industry
in many localities. By the way , it is sur
prising that so few farmers located near
cities and villages , do not cultivate small
fruits , vegetables , and the like for mar-
koting. Wore they to give proper atten
tion to this branch , growing choice varie
ties , and sending to market in good con
dition assorted , and In neat boxes and
attractive packages they would soon
lind thn business profitable.
But if the farmers of old , long-culti
vated regions nro derelict in growing
fruits and vegetables , as many of them
proverbially are , what shall bo said of
those occupying largo ami fertile farms
ami plantation ; jn the \vust \ un i ftwJJ
thuso "veil-to-do farmers and planters
who live on "hog and hominy" year in
and year out , without apparently the
least premonitory reluctance or twinge
of conscience ? And it Is still true , ns it
was years ago , that in the west , as a rule ,
corn , wheat and live stock are almost
solely depended upon ami often only
one of these while other , and , for the
family , equally important products re- ,
coivc little or no attention. The planters
of the south have been wont to conlino
themselves to cotton , sugar and tobacco ,
ignoring most other crops , and depend
ing chielly upon the north for supplies
for f ninth' " consumption. The great
majority have not only neglected
the culture of trulls and
vegetables , oven in the most favorable
localities for the production , but also the
cereal and other crops necessary to their
sustenance , and which they might easily
raise. This has been the custom for
years , so long that in some suctions
it appears to have become chronic and
unchangeable ; and yet the benefits of
mixed husbandry are at least coming
to.bo known and appreciated , as its ad
vantages have been clearlv demonstrated
by many Intelligent and progressive cul
tivators since "the late unpleasantness. "
These advantages are many but they
need not bo mentioned in this connection ,
as they will be readily suggested to the
intelligent reader. The adoption of a
judicious system of mixed husbandry
would no doubt prove largely bonclioiiil
to numerous cultivators in the west and
sotitli ( aye , " and in the east nnd north ) ,
who now "rely chielly on ono or two
staples. Indeed , wo confidently believe
that it would be for the pecuniary in
terest of the great mass of farmers
throughout the country to produce u

Early lambs ncod close looking after
this month if they are to bo made to grow
fast ; let thorn have plenty of meal wlioro
they can got it and be away from the
sheep. The sheep must bo well cared
for and fed so as to secure the largest
amount ofi milk possible. For early
lambs , ono lamb to a sheep is enough. It
is important to .have good quortors , not
too warm and tight , but dry and plenty
of room. Slieop andMambs afJor a few
days old need fresh air and sunshine ;
they will rarely sufl'er with the cold if
kept dry. It is a mistake to keep sheep
in a small , close house ; even in cold wea
ther they naturally require exorcise in
the open air , and should have it in fair
wcathaV ; but in stormy weather they
should bo kept under cover where there
is plenty of room and pure air.

Another Duncor With a History.
Town Topics : It is said that ICato
Vaughan , the Gaiety dancer , is coming
over to America. She is nothing for us
if she has no scandal attached to her.
Kato Vaughan is a particularly graceful ,
dilicate-looking girl , who has made her
self popular on the burlesque stage by
tin- supple elegance of her style and the
picturesque tightness uf her .drosses. She
was originally in the smallest of London
music halls , and first appeared on the
regular stage of Drury Lane in a panto-
mimo. From thence she came to the
Gaiety theatre , and for several years was
ono of the popular quartette headed by
Terry Hoyco and Nellie Farrcn. Knto
Vaughan was soon notorious. Her first
serious llirtation was with a well known
criminal barrister who has elneo boon
made judge in India. The next man who
was known to have thrown Ins cap and
gloves over the windmills for her was
John Dclacour , ono of the best looking
swells in London. His good looks were
of no avail In the end , for the nephew of
the duke of Wellington , Colonel Fred
Wollcsloy , of the guards , carried her off
to Vienna , where ho was pursued by the
indignant John with sword and pistols.
Colonel Wellesley , however , did not cnro
to meet his predecessor , and made a rapid
exit with the beautiful Kato an exit
hastened , perhaps , by the fact that his
( the colonel's ) own wife was then staying
ut the Grand hutol in the Kaisoratudt.

A Fund For Mrs. Alton.
The family of/ / Charles Alton , the young
man who committed suicide a few days
ago in a saloon on the corner of bt.
Mary's avenue und Eighteenth street ,
was loft destitute in circumstances. . The
suicide had not been at work for some
months , and all the money ho had saved
hod beer expended. Yesterday , how
ever , a former partner in the restaurant
business , Julius Kortlang , assisted by
Fritz Hiokstcln , took up a collection for
the suffering ones amounting to 1-14. It
is intended to continue the subscriptions
until they amount to20Q.
A Sudden Death

Dr. Pierco's "Golden Medical Discovery"
is a certain remedy. Chronic irritation ,
pulpntatipn , cxcpssivoor defective action
of the heart ; shortness of breath , and
pain , arc removed by it in a short period.
It also cures all the diseases relating to
the liver , stomach , bowels , blou'd and

Now and Important Opinloni of Pnl-
inonnry ICxpnrts Can the Univer
sal Consumption uo Success
fully Treated ?
Dr. Borffeon , a loading French doctor , has
a now treatmptit for consumption I
Ho Rives an onotnn of carbonic acid ami
sulphurated hydrogen gases , the latter gas
carrying the former Into every part of the
throat and lungs.
This treatment , too , is directed at effects
the cnuso remains undisturbed.
What this cause la has been stated by per-
Imps the highest pulmonary authority In tlio
world , } . c , , the Uroinpton Hospital tor Con
sumptives , in London , Kiiff.
This nmlfldy ovcrv year carries oltftorn
ono-sovnntli to ono-tlflit ot the entire popula
tion of Knglnml I
Dr. IViync , it. I ) . . M. It , 0. P. , London , Is
authority Tor this statement.
The same or a greater proportion of deaths
obtains In Ainmlcn ,
Dr. Pay no also says that one-half the total
number of deaths from all oMcr&utsps have
seeds of tills disi'fl o In the system which only
require some Iriltnnt to develop I
Dr. Ilnrinruin Urchmer , nn eminent Ger
man authority , says tlmt consumption Is
caused by deficient nutrition of tlio lungs , by
These authorities cannot Im disputed.
The mnllenl world recognizes them. The
uric ncld N the Irritant In the blood tlmt
causes the development of the seeds which
Dr. Uiclnner says Ho dormnnt In the ulooa.
Kvcry imitlclo of blood which passes
thioudi the hint's nnd heart , also coes
thtoiwh the kidneys , and If they nro In tlio

1)1) ) ) your ilncor In acid every day and It
soon festers and Is destroyed. Send ncld
poisoned blood tluough the lungs every second
end , nnd they boon give way.
The Dvompton Hospital Investigation
showed that ft'-J per cent , of the victims of
consumption were nflllctcd with durnnged
kidneys , which permitted the uric ncld poi
son to icmaln In the blood and Irrltnto the
lungs. This uric acid Is always lighting
every vltnl organ , and If there bo any inhe
rent weakness in the limes It Inuvltably
causes pneumonia , cough and consumption.
The real cause of pulmonary troubles being
so authoritatively shown to bo faulty even
tliou-'h unsuspected notion ot the kidneys ,
explains why. In order to master the ( headed
consumption , ono must rid the blood of the
uric acid Irritant which inflames nnd burns
un the lung substance. For this purpose
there Is nothing equal to the great specific ,
Warner's sal'o cure. This remedy has now
tlio favor of medical men all over the world
purely on Us merits. Wo have no doubt that
If the kidneys nro kept In natural action ,
consumption nnd a grunt ninny other dis
eases , cauM-d by uric ncid , will not only bo
cured , but will bu prevented.
When the kidney Is healthy , no albumen
nppuais In the water , but nlbutiuMi Is found
In the water of moro thun half ot these who
din of consumption 1
This , thou , is the condition of thlncs tlmt
nlwnvs precedes consumption : Fiist. weak
ened kidneys : retained uric acid , polsonine
the blood ; third , the development ol' disease
In the lungs bv the hritant acids passing
through them. Then there Is n Httlo cough in
the moinlng ; soon thick , yellow matter Is
spit up , followed by loss of lloslinud strength ,
with dicndtul night sweats ; nnd when the
patient goes to his school physician
tor help , ho is put on coil liver oil
which his stomach. weakened also
by uric ncld in the blood , cannot digest. Ue-
cnuso thcio H no pain present In thekldnoyn ,
the patient does not think they mo af-
tuctnd , but the kidney acid Is dolm ; Us work
every minute , every hour , day and night , and
by-ind-by the disease of tin : lungs 1ms nd-
vnnced until pus Is developed , then come
hemorrhages , and at last the glassy stare
which denotes that the cud is near I
A post mortem examination of such cases
shows tlmt the terrible uric ncld has com
pletely do-itrnyed the substance of the lung.
It is Impossible to euro lung disease when
the blood Is poisoned with uile ncld.
