A comrannlcntlon was received by a well-
known railroad ofllclitl , horfi , n tat In 5 that
tbo contract for the construction of eighty
xnllos of railroad f rom Sioux City to Pahsado ,
on the main line of the St. I'.iul , Minneapolis
& Manitoba , had bean awarded to E. P. Hoy-
Colds & Co. , nnd that the road was to bo
known as the Sjoux City t Northwestern.
It wni also nulled thut this line would con
nect with the "Soo , " thereby giving the
Union 1'aciflo n short line to the eastern
coast.
A. reporter WM also shown a contract for
the delivery of tips nnd railroad timber at
La Mars , In. , Viillc.v Springs , Duk. , nnd
other IKInta ) ulona the proposed line , the lost
tilaca boliiR 1'aiisudo , whcra it tups the
Manitoba linn. The Importance of this move
tno ofllclnl stated , WHS not only In the lact
of the Union Pnclllo acquiring a short line
to the cast but in making n direct opening
for the road to Uututh , which would onnblo
It to pro mto with the lake stoamshlp lines.
In doing this the dlfTcrcntlal allowed St.
Pauillnos on Puliotn irolirht would also be
allowed the Union Tactile on Nebraska
freight. This would bo mi Important factor ,
ho said during the Inho season , and whan
tbo lakes were closed the Union Pacific
would -hava connecting facilities with the
8to. Marie a portion of the Canadian 1'a-
6iflo system at luluth. )
The ofllclnl was nlsoof the opinion that the
now road wasncroaturoof the Union Paclflo
and thnt the latter would soon show Its hand.
Vlco President Holcornbof the UnlonPuolflo
eaid , when naked as to whether hie road was
directly Interested , that be had no Informa
tion to ffivo out on that point , and that ho
was of the opinion that there was uo founda
tion for the story as far as the Union Paclflo
was concerned.
It was learned , hownvor , from a rollnblo
Hource that the Union Paciflo Is associated In
the dual , but largely from n trafllc stand
point. The oQlcials state that the schoino is
one of timely importance.
Special rtatca Kxlilblr.
Chairman Finloy , of the trans-Missouri
issoclntfon lias Issued a circular , the sub
stance of which is as follows and will apply
on all Hnoi of the association : All freight
from points within the stuto of Nebraska ,
intended for exhibition at the Stnto Fair nt
Lincoln , and for the Omaha fair and ox posi
tion at Oinulm , during tbo year 18s9 , may bo
billed lo Lincoln or Omaha at tnrlft ratej , all
charges prepaid , oxccnt specimen fruit , grain
and vegetables , which may bo hilled froo.
On presentation to the ugcnt at Lincoln or
Omaha , of a cortlilcata Irom the secretary of
the fair , that the goods have actually bcon
on exhibition , and have not changed owner
ship , they will bo returned froo. On pre
sentation of the oamo cortilicato to the agent
at the station from which the shipment was
originally made , the prepaid charges will bo
rofundca , provided that all the articles
shipped bo returned. If any part of the
original consignment bo disposed of at Lin
coln or Omaha , the agent will retain such
proportion of prepaid charges as may bo duo
nt tariff rates to Lincoln or Omaha on the
articles not returned. Racing stock will
take full tariff rates both ways.
A Sevorft Storm.
Reports were received at the rail way head
quarters that a sovcro rain storm passed
over the western suction of Nobraksi and
the eastern portion of Colorado Monday
night.
Two washouts occurred on the Union Pa
cific , Ono thousand feet of track near
Ogalnlla was carried away. At Paxton the
ruad-bcd is badly oaten awnv , nnd all main
line trains were delayed about eight hours.
The break in the track at the former place
occurred about midnight , and just after a
freight train had passed over the road.
On the 13. & M. main line n culvert
and n largo portion of the road-bod
near Hudson were washed away and the
cast and westbound overland trums trans
ferred tholr passengers at that point. The
reports nro to the effect that the rain was
accompanied by a high wind which damaged
the crops to a considerable extent.
Corn Fed Cattle.
The Uurllngton hauled twenty cars loaded
with cattle fatted at the llor distillery , to
Chicago , consigned by McCloud , Love & Co. ,
of South Omaha.
When questioned as to why the stock wa *
not marketed at South Omaha , a Burlington
attucho said that it would bo sold on the mar
ket ut Chicago as corn-fed cattle , while nt
South Omaha it would bo known as distil
lery-fed cattle and would not bring the same
price it would at Chicago.
A. Union I'ac Uo Wreck.
Owing to a misplaced switch flvo empty
freight cars were derailed and mora or less
damaged In the Union Paciflo yards near the
{ thirteenth street viaduct yesterday. Ono
of the cars cumo near falling from the via
duct to the street below , which would , no
doubt , linvo resulted in the loss ot life , as at
the tlmo the street was thronged with pedes
trians.
G. A. H. Sp'ctnl Train.
The Kllthorn will run a special train of

A Mrnnuo Accident and How It tte-

William Dixon , u lootiou foreman on the
Oregon Short Line , on July 15 found a ruil

BQOW shed , which is flvo mlles wost'of rioda
Springs , Idaho , which was out of line on
account o ( the pressure of the other rail.
With ono man nauiud Kelly to him , ho un
dertook to replace Itltu a shorter rail.
They had removed the spikes from the Inner
aide of the rail , and Dixon took a claw bar to
pry tbo rail out of its place. As eon M the
rail wits relieved from the * prcsMiro of the
other rails , It sprung as If It was made of
spring steel to n distance ot fifteen feet ,
Mrlldng Dixon and breaking both of bis legs

Bolt along , ho set out to meet the mon from
the next Ncctlon , whtlo bo sent Kelly on foot
in the other direction to meet the passenger

Some thrco niontns ago I was taken very
sick with sovcro pain In the small of my back
over the kldnoys. The pain \va excruciating.
I applied an ALLCOCK'S POROUS PIASTER over
the affected region and had relief almost
within an hour. At the same tlmo In con

nervous disturbance , nftcctlne my legs with
cramps so I could scarcely sleep. Mooting
with success with my back I applied a plas

days was complr.toly cured , nnd have never
been troubled in cither way since.
GKOKGH GOULil ) .
Joe Howard Describes Hint as n Very
Plcnnnm You tip Mnn.
Between George Gould nnd MB father ,
Jay Gould , exists an alToctiotmto inter
est nnd regard delightful to witness ,
writes Joe Hovvttrd to the Chicago
News. You may hnvo noticed that
while Jay Gould nnd his oporaUoiis
have boon n target for abuse , for vitu-
porntivo assault , for twenty years no
mnn bus yet tome to the front with rid
icule ol either him or his affairs. They
say , and I believe , ho cares noth
ing for newspaper assault. I can
qullo understand that , because very ,
very often I find In metropolitan papers
assertions so wide ot truth , conclusions
drawn from incorrect buses that of
course moan nothing to him or to those
who uro familiar with the facts. This
course pursued for n long term of voars
naturally hardens the tnnn who is at
tacked. Ho falls back upon tbo cer
tainty that his associates know what is
so and what isn't so , and with thnt ho is
content. Jay Gould is now about llfty-
llvo years of ago and in better health
than ho hn.3 boon for a long time. Nev
ertheless , although his spirit is still po
tent and his linger still indicates the
way , upon George Gould's shoulders
rests the larger part of the Gould re
sponsibilities.
George is about twenty-five years old ,
short , well built and of un extremely
rugged constitution.
Where ho gets it I don't know , for
neither his father nor his mother gave
evidence of physical strength beyond a
certain wirinoss. However , George
has it. Physically ho is well developed
to a degree ; an ntliloto , fond of yachting
and outdoor sports , us brown and tanned
ns an Indian , quick-stopping , alert in
movement nnd a very gooa fellow.
Mentally ho seems to bo Wdll equipped ;
indeed he must be , or ho could
not sustain the burdens plucod
upon him by bin father. Ho couldn't
oven understand the hither verge of
manipulations , of oporntiotis , of schemes
and programme , unless there was
something to him. I have known him
a number of years und have always
found him quick in sympathy , kind
hearted , and particularly frank nnd
open with mon who have business deal
ings with him. Representing na ho
does his father's very innermost * > oul , it
would bo absurd for causual acquaint
ances to attempt to discuss with him ,
with any degree of frankness , busi
ness situations. The man would be a
lool indeed who was not suspicious of
the motives of ono who would attempt
to talk busir ss lo him , unless the meet
ing were for a business purpose. But
in all matters of social intercourse ,
where young men come together for the
purposes of enjoyment , George is , and
always has been , more than ready to
sustain his full proportion , nnd whore
ho has boon appealed to for courtesies
and helpfulness , as all young mon are
more or less , the record shows ho baa
not been found wanting when fairly
tried.
Ho is particularly happy in his mar
ried life.
Ho succeeded in drawing from the
stugo Miss Edith Klngdon , who bade
fair at ono time to rank high as a profes
sional beauty. Standing on that most
dangerous elevation , the dramatic
stage , she , with rare good sense , re
pelled the attention of dudes , and with
onual good sense accepted the honest
admiration and manly offer of the
brightest of horadmirora. Their union
has been ourtiuulnrlyfortunate in every
way , made especially interesting to
Jay Gould in that thereby ho has
become a grandfather twice over ,
und to George because it
bus concentrated his attention more at
homo , drawing him entirely from
worldly gayeUes and youthful follies. I
thought as I looked at him , "how mon
differ in their opportunities in life. " I
began my lifo in 18(10 ( , nnd I roinombor
thinking then that there wcro just two
men in the world whose opportunity I
envied. Ono was the Prince of Wales
and the other James Gordon Bon
net , jr. ; but now that I BOO
what his royal nibs has accom
plished , and the extraordinary utiliza
tion the younger Bennett has made of
his magnificent outlook , I don't know
that I envy either ono of them ; but see
the chtuico George Gould has. JTo is
now vlco president of the great Western
Union telegraph company ; ho is the
ohiof olllcor In the Paciflo Mail Steam
ship company ; he represents his father's
intorebts nnd his own in thousands und
thousand ? of miles of railway service ,
and ho has in his right hand that great
est of potentialities , money galore.
Some years ago the c/.ar saw fit to
expel the Jens from his domains.
A very short time thereafter , desiring
beyond question to go to war with Great
Britain nnd to take all the risks that
that wonderful determination carried
with it , ho wont to the Rothschilds
Booking to negotiate aloan , butthoy very
quietly and meaningly Informed him
thnt if Jo ws were not good enough to live
in Kussla they were not Kind enough to
lend Russia money.Vo have reached
that .point hero , ns in Russia , whore
money is king , nnd money is power
when mono7 rightly directed can raise
the race. Gould has the money , ho has
the power , and therefore , whether in
car or opera-house , on the street or in
the park , In multitudinous assemblage
or in the calm rotirncy of domesticity ,
he is a figure of significant interest the
scope of whioh can not well bo overesti
mate ! .

Tlio tmncthnn Fowl.
Wo Imvo tnndo n number of experi
ments with puro-brod fowls tins year ,
and tested their merits thoroughly ,
says the lown Homestead. Among the
class were Langshans , Light Brahmas ,
Houdans , White nnd Brown Leghorns ,
Partridge Cochins , WynndoUcs , Silver
Spanglodllamburgs and White-Faced
Black Spanish. The BToudans , Leghorns -
horns , Spanish , Wyaitdottos , Hamburga
nnd Langshnns laid the most eggs , in
the order wo have nnmod them , but the
Langshans laid theirs at the time eggs
were scarce nnd brought good market
prices' . The Brnhmns nnd Cochins ,
too , laid in the cold months , but not ns
many eggs ns the Langshans , nnd they
were not as large in slzo.
For eating , wo found the Brahmas , .
Houdnng , Cochins nnd Wynndotto's ex
cellent noted for their plumpness and
fine flavor , but when wo tackled the
Langshans wo mot n meal that offset
them all. "While there was no lack in
plumpness , the flavor was delicious ,
coming no close to that of a turkey thnt
wo doubt if the best judges could , not
bo fooled.
For hardiness , wo found tbo Ham-
burgs tlio most dollcato , while the rest
of the breeds wcro about equal.
Agricultural Krtuontion.
When the results which may be no-
comDllshodj and in many instances are
accomplished by trained mon , nro taken
into consideration , there can bo no
question of the value of special agricul
tural education to those who dcsiro to
qualify themselves for deriving the
greatest prollt from the products of the
soil , says the National Stockman and
Farmer' . The man whoso practical farm
traininc is supplemented by a scientific
knowledge of everything with winch
ho has to deal in growing crops or feedIng -
Ing stock is by that knowledge bettor
'
equipped for 'his business than his
neighbor who has enjoyed none of these
advantages. This is demonstrable com
mon sense , if such an expression may bo
used.
There is altogether too much of an
inclination among agricultural people
to sneer ut tno idea of education for
farming , but wo believe that this is
lergolA owing to the scarcity of mon in
dustriously educated for the business.
Those school-trained farmers are so few
that when n failure is found among
them and such failures must bo
expected right hero as well as in every
thing olfae it creates a widespread but
really groundless prejudice against the
idea of an agricultural college in itsolf.
The idea is certain to give way as
knowledge of the facts of the case in
creases.
The people have really no opportu
nity of knowing just what agricultural
school training will accomplish. Though
wo have forty-eight schools devoted
primarily to agriculture , the usual cur
riculum includes so much else that
many attend without any idea of in-
quii'ing into the underlying principles
of fanning. There aip also about forty
other institutions which are sunposod
to teach agriculture incidentally. It is
estimated that in all these schools
there are now probably 5 000 students
preparing themselves especially for
high class fnrminr. There seems to bean
an impetus in this direction just now ,
and this total will no doubt bo largely
increased in the next few years , all of
which points to a time when this kind
of education will bo more nearly appre
ciated at its true worth. The whole
subject will bo regarded altogether dif
ferently by the public ton years hence ,
nnd wo make this prediction without
any hesitation whatever.
With liny.
It Is the practice of some farmers to
give their horses too much hay. There
has bcon great improvement in this re
spect within a few months , and still
there nro many farmers who hnvo not
"caught on" to the bettor way , says the
Rural World : When n boy upon the
farm , I well remember that it was a
standing rule to rake doun a little hay
into the horses' rack every time that
one wont into the stable. The result wns
that the horse would keep his grinders
nearly all the time , nnd became a pot
bellied unsightly animal. Horses fed
in this way became more machines or
hay-cutters , the nutrition of the- hay is
not assimilated , und a large portion of
it is wasted.
By such stuffing every organ in the
body is interfered with , nnd when put
upon the road or to work upon the farm ,
a horse so fed cannot move with any
comfort until relieved of the supor-
abundunc < ) of the feed. The disease
known as the heaves is generally duo to
over-driving when the stomach is full
of hay.
Bulk in- feeding is necessary , but
when the food is nearly all bulk an ex
treme has been reached nnd It is tlmo
to change. Hay should bo fed with as
much euro as grain Is fed. The work
ing horse should bo fed three times a
day on ouch. The horse when standing
in the stable should bo fed three regu
lar meals , ana this will give the food
tlmo to digest , nnd all the nutritive portions
tions will bo assimilated.
DilToront horses will require different
quantities , and in feeding iv now horse
it becomes a matter of experiment until
his wants nro ascertained. But oven
when experimenting , there should bo
Bouio sort of estimate asto how much n
horse can utilize , nnd then the quantity
can bo approximated to it. A horse
should not be permitted to logo llesh ,
but over-feeding with hay is an unkindness -
ness to the beast , bccond only to over
driving or overloading.
The Kcsl Wny to Food a Cow.
A Kansas correspondent wishes us to
give a few plain directions for "tho
very best way to food n cow. " Wo remember -
member to have read in the long time
ago , "Plain directions of how to bring
up a baby , " Dy MI& * Minerva Jones.
Tlio directions were just splendid , as
Miss Minerva wrote them without the
baby , but unfortunately only old maid's
babies will grow up by the rule , and
Miss Minerva's model nurfcory was a dis
mal failure. Now , cows are' bomewhut
like babies , says the Jersey Bulletin.
They will not nlways work , or ruthor
eat , by rule. Wo have road and tried
not n few "very bobt ways" to feed a
cow , but just about the time wo got
them all mixed and llxed the cow buys
no. And when a cow says no , she gen
erally means it.
The truth is cows have their likes and
dislikes , nnd they will not bo forced ,
except by hunger , to nut what they do
not like , In. the wide range of goou"
wholesome food ut the command ot the
American farmers , it is very easy to
make up a largo variety of rations to
suit nny cow. As standard food , wo can
place corn first , oata.toran , cotton seed
meal , Unseed nioal , etc. , oaoh
to bo civon Its' ' proper place ,
nnd neither to'icitcludo or usurp
the place of any other , when the
other can bo had , f.ffo the grains there ,
of course , will always bo added hay ,
Bilngo , corn fodder or other bulky fod-
dor. Among hays fop milch cows noth
ing equals good cltfVOT. But our Knn-
SilS friend must remember that however
lie may rend what blliur ; 7rritetor Hs'-on '
to what others saytjip actual mastering
Of the material facts Jn feeding n cow ,
ho can lourn only .by feeding n cow.
Knowledge gotten"1 ! ! ! thnt way will
stick. '
If the sum of human knowledge is
know thyself , the sum ot cattle knowl
edge is , know thy cow.
The Twlno nnd Itnerglnc Trusts.
The twine nnd bagging trusts have
brought on the opening skirmish be
tween the yeomanry of the land nnd the
speculative element whioh proposes to
levy taxes for tholr own benefit nt will.
The cause that flrod the patriots of'76
nnd changed the destiny of the Ameri
can people wns an unjustly levied tax ,
contemptibly small in amount , but rep
resenting the right to tax without rep
resentation. The combinations of cap
ital now presuming to dominate the
commerce of the nation hnvo again as
sumed the same right , nnd ngnin the
American spirit of resistance is aroused ,
says the National Economical. This
spirit is invincible , and the conflict
now Inaugurated cannot end except in
the establishment of justice nnd the
overthrow of nrrogant assumption. The
forbearance of the American people is
only equaled by their determination'
once aroused they will never cease the
conflict until their cause is vindicated
and tholr dignity acknowledged.
What U a Btandard-Itroil Ilorso ?
The phenomenal success whioh has
attended the dovolopomont of the trot
ting horse mnkos the principles upon
which it has bcon developed n matter
of interest to brooders of live stock of
all classes. The following are the rules
governing the registry of standard-bred
horses , says the Iowa Homestead :
1. Any stallion that has himself a record of
two minutes and thirty seconds (330) ( ; ) or bet
tor , provided nny of his got has a record of
2:30 : or better , or provided his sire or his dam ,
hfs grand-sire or his grand-dam Is already a
btundard animal.
2. Any ninro or gelding that has a record of
2 : ao or hotter.
3. Any horse thnt Is the slro of two animals
with n record of 3:80 : or bettor.
4. Any horse that is the sire of ono animal
with a record of 1:80 ! : or bettor , provided ho
has cither of the following qualifications :
1. Record himself of 3:35 : or bettor. 2. Is tne
slro of two other animals with a record of
2:85 : or bettor. 3. Has n stro or dam that Is
already a standard animal.
5. Any mare that has produced an animal
with n record of 55:30 : or bettor.
0. The progency of a standard horse when
out of n standard maro. ,
7. Tno female progeny of a standard horse
when out of a mare by a standard horse.
8. The female urogeny of a standard
horse when out of a mare , the dam of which
is a standard animal. '
9. Any mare that has a record of 2:33 : or
better and the slro < or dam of which Is a
standard animal. , }
It will bo seen from the above that
there are but two'principles involved ;
first , actual performance , and , second ,
the inheritance of the blood of perform
ers. It will bo noticed that among
these rules there is potbing said about
the color of the hair , nor about fashion
able pedigrees , or any particular line of
breeding. The Now Jerusalem of the
trotting horse breeders lies , like that
of the Apocalypse , four square , has
gates on every side , and admits any
thing .that can , trot at. a given speoa ,
with their posterityund asks no further
questions. '
Prairie TroeH from Seeds.
As a rule failure almost invariably
follows the attempt to grow trees from
seed planted whore the trees are in
tended to stand , yet the difference in
the first cost , relatively , between seed
nnd rooted trees , or cuttings ; induces
many to plant seeds. The cost of seed
usually required for five acres is $3 or
$4 , of cuttings $12 to $18 , and of young
trees Irom $20 to $30. The cost of
planting trees or seed is almost as
much in favor of tbo- seed , says the
American Agriculturist. The only
chance of success with the seed
Eossiblo
i when the ground selected has boon
previously cleanly cultivated by some
hoed crop , or better by summer fal
lowing , and when it is put in the finest
possible condition nnd the seed planted
lute In the full. There is then un oven
chance of the seed coming up with the
woods , which must bo thoroughly and
sybtematilly kept down , or the time nnd
labor mo thrown away. Our prairie
weeds are easily destroyed when small ,
but if allowed a few days growth become -
como a terror to the cultivator , and will
effectually smother all tree seedlings ,
or even good sized young trees.
If the trees are to bo raised from peed ,
select a clean , rich piece of ground in
the garden , which should bo made as
fine as possible by thorough harrowing
and plunking , stretch u line lengthwise
the patch , and make a drill about six
inches wide and two inches deep. Sow
the seed thicicly in this drill , say about
twonty-llvo seeds to the foot , and cover
with the fine earth , which should bo
compacted firmly with the foot or boo ,
according to moisture in the soil. Other
drills can be mudo parallel with this ,
about thirty inches apart , so that the
ground between can bo kept cultivated
by a horse hoe or harrow toothed culti
vator. If good ground is selected and
clean cultivation , carried out , the seed
lings will bo of just the right si/.o to
transplant the next spring , nnd by clean
cultivation or summer fallowing ( pre
ferably the latter ) of the ground which
they are intended to occupy , you have
the first essentials of success. But hero ,
as elsewhere , ' 'eternal cultivation Is the
price of troos. "
Andrew J. Grlsjinin , of Rock , Pope
county. 111. , says ; , "J tried Chamber
lain's Cello , Chplorfi and Diorrhcca
Remedy In my fuii\\y ) \ for summer ccim-
pleint nnd cholera.morbus and it gave
the best of satisfaction. It also proved
good ns n preventive of flux. I prniso

Four Hundred rlnnds Rrpcctcd
from ICIulit Iliiiiiiruil Acres.
"Georgia has thoulggost , watermelon
patch in the world.Mcsaid J. J. Grillln ,
who has just scon U , to an Atlanta Con-
btitution man ,
"Think of u lane two mlles long with
melons on each side as far as tno eye
can roach. It is un interesting sight
when the laborers go out ut daybreak
to gather the melons. Squads of thorn
are moving the vines aside to make
room for the wagons to go through.
Others nro thumping and cutting off
the melons from the vines , while others
follow , gathering the fruit into the
wagons.
"I never saw anything like it. The
largcbt melons will uvorngo forty
pounds , and there will bo lots of sixty
pounders. There will bo cars of 1,200
inolonii with hardly u melon under
thirty-live or forty pounds.
"Tho Phillips Melon company , which
owns this immoiibo melon patch of 800
ucros. will make a big thing out of it.
In my judgment their profit will bo not
less than $160 a carload , and thcj .ill
ship 400 cars. Sixty thousand dollars on
800 acres will boat cotton , Without
disaster they will make such n success
that the farmers who nro watching
them will plant un Immense acreage in
that section next year.
How did they do it ? By business
methods. They wont to work with
enough cosh In bunk to carry out tholr
plans on a grand scale , And they fertil
ized nnd worked the crop lo the best
advantage in every way. I couldn't
tell you how many pounds of fortlltoor
they used , but was nil they could use to
advantage.
"Tho thing is business from ono end
to the other. Why. they Imvo half
tholr crop already said at fancy prices
COO cars in Boston. Their estimate of
400 Cars for 800 acres is a very conserva
tive ono. I think it will go ever that. "
A niiilo'a Urcnt Kent.
The other night flvo or six young men
ot the listless. Bolf-sufllclont variety , so
familiar just now , dined together in n
private room nt a fashionable rusta'ur-
nnt , says the Now York Times. After
cigars "had boon lighted ono of them
drawled :
"I'll ' bet , follows , that I can throw
this knife nnd it will stick In the crack
of thnt door every timo. "
Ho rose from the table nnd pointed
out the the narrow crook between the
door and the iamb , and showed how ho
proposed to plnco the knife. The five
others approached the place and cried :
"Wo take that bet. For how much ? "
"I am to hnvo ton throws. Each time
that I fail I pay a $10 bill ; illsuccoed In
putting the Knife in the crack ten times
ouch of you will pay mo the same sum. "
The young man took his position , and ,
with n rapidity nnd accuracy thnt words
cannot decrlbo , executed ton times in
succession this remarkable feat.
When ho had finished everyone hur
rahed with delight. Each ono of his
wagers being paid , ho pocketed n roll of
bills with a just pride.
"But how did you ever learn to do
this ? " asked one of the company.
Then ho revealed the secret. For two
or three years , having nothing pressing
to do , and anxious to bo talked aboutho
hud given hlmsol'f up to patient practice
at this work. Each morning ho looked ,
himself In his room , and , far from pry
ing eyes , ho attempted for hours to put
a knife into a hole. Ho hud to make
innumerable experiments to mousuro
the distance required , the force neces
sary , nnd the curve , but his persever
ance was Invincible. M first ho throw
the knife into the wide mouth of a Chi
nese jar ; then into the neck'of a bottle ;
finally ho succcdcd In lodging his pro-
jotilo in the narrowest opening.
And yet some people say that our
dudes nro good for nothing and incum-
bor the earth I
Whlslcy In Melons.
A gentleman who has tried it vouches
for this story : Taking n gallon jug of
whisky , ho passed a , cord through its
cork , which cord dropped to tbo bottom
of the jug. The twine was then intro
duced into a watermelon vine by slit
ting the vine uud the vine permitted to
produce only two melons. When the
melons were matured Ihoy were served
nt n private barbecue to six gontlomon.
The effect was astonishing. The gallon
of whisky got in its work. Not a drop
of the liquor remained in the jug when
the melons wore ripe.
