of the electric motor company's hugo plow
purchased last winter , the old ono propelled
by horse power being sufllclcnt for all that
was needed. It is predicted , however , by
local weather prophets that the bin plow will

A Unllroncl Ankinc FOP nn Injunction.
Judge Aylcsworth , In the superior court ,
was engaged yesterday In hearing n Inw case
that has some features of Interest to the pub-
He. It Is a suit by the Milwaukee railroad
company to restrain Contractor C. R. Mitch
ell fruin that portion of his grading contract
calling for the filling to grade of Seventh
street from Twelfth to Sixteenth avenues ,
the points where the Milwaukee railroad
main line and switches cross the
street. Several years ago the city
ordered the street graded and the fill
ing was done up to Twelfth nvenuo
by It C. Berger , the contractor , to whom
the work was awarded. Ho was stopped by
n temporary injunction sued out by the rail
road company , whoso attorneys sot up the
plea that the work was unnecessary and the
time of year at which it was being done was
unseasonable- mill put the company to a
great deal of aunoynnconnd inconvenience.
The work was stopped and Berger never
completed his contract. Subsequently ho
nmdo an assignment of Ills contract to
Mitchell , who commenced to complete the
work. To prevent him the company's
attorneys brought out thu old injunction and
nskctt that it be inatlo permanent upon about
the same grounds. The matter is of eapculal
interest to tnn public lor the reason that the
company further sots ap the bro.id claim
that it has absolute Jurisdiction over the 100-
foot right of way , and "no order from the
city will entitle a contractor to co upon It
and do nny work. The case was taken under

Closing Up tlio Term.
The Omcg raoo rase was the grist upon
which the mills of the district court wcro
grinding yesterday , nnd It was uot com
pleted when court adjourned last evening.
The evidence was all submitted , and the
case was partly nrgued. The ease will bo
concluded and submitted to the Jury this
morning. The case has been a most disgust-
iuc one , much of the testimony being unfit
for publication , but as is usual , in such cases ,
it kept the spectators' chairs well filled dur
ing the entire progress of the trial.
The prosecuting witness , a fifteen-year-
old girl , was recalled yesteiday , in rebuttal ,
and tcstiilcd that nothing of an actually com
pleted act of criminal intimacy had ever
occurred between hrr and the defendant ,
young Omeg , although the boy testified that
their criminal intimacy dated back to over a
year prior to the tlmo of the alleged cotnmis
slonoftho crime for which ho Is indicted.
There has been some very remarkable
swearing In this case , and the jury will un
doubtedly have n week's work on their
hands to sift but the truth.

llio Police-men's Annual Uall.
Last evening was the occasion of the po
licemen's annual bull , and a more unpropi-
tlous one , so far as the weather was con
cerned , could not well bo imagined. The
streets were covered to the depth of several
inches with the mud and slush incident upon
several days of rainy weather and yesterday
morning's fall of snow , and during the even
ing , ns during the greater portion of the day ,
a steady but exceedingly monotonous and
dlKugrccablo drizzle rendered the aspect out
of doors anything but inviting , and undoubt
edly kept at homo hundreds who would
otherwise : have attended the ball.
Notwithstanding the fact that there wcro
less than a hundred couples on the iloor , the
affair was u very successful ono , particularly
In n financial way. Nearly four hundred
tickets wcro sold , which will leave the boys
a handsome sum after all expenses uro paid ,
to bo devoted to the purchase of regulation
uniform overcoats for the cntiro forco. The
net proceeds will bo more than sufllcient to
'lurnish every Jmcmbor of the police and
marshal's forces witn a fine outer garment ,
a fact over which the citizens generally may
well rejoice , as it will hereafter bo
'posblblo ' to distinguish the night
patrolmen from the hack drivers or others
who are similarly bundled up to withstand
the wintry blasts. It is stated that the sale
of tickets this year far exceeded that of a
year ngo , there being a very liberal response
when the citizens were requested to pat
ron izo the ball.
Dalboy's orchestra furnished music for the
occasion. The committees were as follows :
Invitation , Chief Lucas , Oflicors Mullen ,
Kemp and Hetidricks. Reception , Mayor

Tlio Barbarous Custom Still Practiced
in the Azores.
The notice in the Now York Times of
the of Karl Mnrr'a
coming great pic
ture , "The Flagellants , " has recalled to
me an episode in my visit to the Azores
last 'year which may interest your
renders , says a communication to the
New York Times.
Flagellation , that "astounding phe
nomenon of the Christianity of the mid
dle ages , " was at that time found to ho
practiced in the inland of St. Michael ,
though it was long ago forbidden and
was apparently abandoned. However ,
an English journalist , who was
writing an the subject of the
islands for a magazine * and a young
American who w.as with him in his ex
peditions to till of the out-of-tho-wny
places , heard rumors that the practice
was still continued , and they made ti
most persevering search lor the place
where it was dono. After being sent
from ono village to another they linully
unearthed it at Fonacs d'Ajuda , a very
retired spot among the high mounsains
at the northeast end of the ismnd.
There they found a small chapel , of
which the Iloor and the walls to a
height of six feet were spattered with
blood , some of it still quito fresh , as the
lost llagollation had been done only a
They succeeded with much difficulty
in obtaining the instruments of torture ,
as they may well bo called. Ono , the
usorgo , or scourge , is a cord with
twelve rawhide ends , each about six
inches long and a quarter of an inch in
diameter , the number twelve represen
ting the number of the apostles. The
ilagellunt uses this till largo welts are
raised and the flesh made very tender.
The llagolla is then used till the blood
Hews freely and the person is exhausted.
That is a round ball of wax about two
inch s in diumotcr , around the middle
of which are three rows of glass spikes
stuck in the wax , very sharp and nearly
an inch in length. The ono which i
saw was covered with blood. Painful
as this is , there is always some ono to
take the place of the person wlio goes
out. At the time of which I speak
there were eighteen waiting for the
honor. It is considered a great privi
lege to bo allowed to do it , ns the ignor
ant and superstitions people regard it
as an act of great pietj' , but as it is so
frowned upon by the authorities the
priests are obliged to allow it surrepti
On the return of the two gentlemen
to the city of Ponta , Dolgnda the asorgo
and flngolla were shown at the club and
caused great excitement. The daily
papers ( which are a necessity to Azor-
oans ) took up the affair with great .vc-
homcnco and indignation. In the prin
cipal one was a long article headed
"Savages , " from which I take a few
sentences. "Tho spectacle of which
Bomo Englishmen saw the conclusion on >
the occasion of the procession nt Fonnos
is so edifying and conclusive that that
alone would justly give us the epithet
of s.avagoB. This affair was viewed by
Englishmen , who bought sotno of the
scourges , which will certainly figure in
the museums of London with the in
scription , 'Scourges with which the
savages of the island of St. Michael
martyrize themselves on the occasion
of religious processions. ' Then wo re

Such remarks nrouaed the authorities
to so great a degree that the civil gov
ernor assured the public that It should
bo stopped atoncorand appealed to the
bishop of the Islands ut Torcoira for as
sistance in doing so. In the muantimo
the people at Fonnos hoard what was
being done and their indignation was
intense against the intruding foreign
ers. It was said that it would Imvo boon
unsafe for nn English speaking person
to appear there.
All this was in the spring of 1888 , and
I do not know whether anything has
been done about it since , but I fancy
that it still goes on , The enlightened
men of the city still talk ugulnst it , and
the civil authorities also talk , but do
nothing in ore , while the priests eccrotly
encourage what increases their power
over the ignorant people.

In salting butter , It should always bo
berne In mind that salt has no afllnity
for fat. Fat rondilv absorbs odors , hut
It docs not absorb salt. So salb absorbs
odors , and should therefore bo kept en
tirely away from thoin. It Is soon
spoiled for dairy use bocanso It is nolso
Icopt. But It does not penetrate fats.
It readily unites with .tho water In the
butler and becomes brlno , and the
brlno. though oil and wntor will not
mix , adheres to the butter granules In
line drops , nnd fills the interstices , but
never penetrates the solid , compact fat.
The tryor always shows the brlno In
small drops , llko dew , says an exchange.
It Is not evenly spread over the polished
stcol because ot the fat adhering to it.
Washing nnd salting butter whllo It
remains in small granules is the commonsense -
mon-sonso way ot doing it. It the butter
is "pntliorod" before salting it is hardly
possible to salt as evenly , by any amount
ot working , as it easily can bo it the salt
is applied when the butter is la a gran
ular condition. It the salt is all right ,
nnd at once dissolves Us it should , the
but lor can bo inimodiatoly pressed into
a solid was.4 and prepared for market.
This packing butter directly from the
churn is becoming n common practice.
Tlio writer was recently cordially
thanked by an old maker ot fancy butter
tor for having told her that by the gran
ular process there is no need ot a second
working , and she could at once pack her
butter for market. A trial had fully
satisfied her. It saves work , avoids in
juring the grain of the butter , and
lessons ox DOS uro to the air and consequent
quent loss of llavor.
ICnrly Potatoes for Winter Use.
This year's experience increases my
faith in early varieties of potatoes
planted carlv for the main crop , says a
writer in the Now England Farmer.
A great many persons believe that po
tatoes for winter use must bo a Into va
riety , or grown late In the season , and
that early varieties dug early cannot bo
safely put in the collar. No greater
mistake could bo made , and yet when
potatoes are harvested early a little care
is required that/ they may bo handled
with care and put in the collar in a cool
condition. A load of bruised potatoes
tumbled into a big bin or tight barrels
when with a hot July sun may start fer
mentation , heat Anfl decay before they
have had a chance to cool off. I once
lost several barrelp of early dug pota
toes by such treatment. But ripe pota
toes dug as early as the
middle of Julv and put in the
cellar attor being dried and cooled
will keep dormant ( through the winter
and bo equally good for the table us if
dug a month or two later. I have re
tained the seed of'several latish varie
ties , because of sq'mo good quality in
oa'ch , but with this year's experience I
nm ready to lot them go and depend on
but a single ynrititVj and that variety
will bo Polaris. I would like a second
later variety except for the risk of rot
and the trouble of a longer fight with the
booties. Of the potatoes dug July 8
scarcely any were diseased , and they
have kept sound and are the most satis
factory of any I shall have of this sea
son's product. Of sotno of the later
plantings not enough sound tubers were
dug to equal the seed planted.
Tree riuntiiiir mi the Prairies.
Tn his report on forestry submitted to
the Minnesota Horticultural socioty.Mr.
C. L. Smith said : "Now. my idea is
that in planting a tree plantation on the
prairie the first necessity is a snow
break , or protection of white willows ,
which I believe is the best or cheapest
of anything that wo can got. They
should bo planted especially to the
north and west. I would rather put it
clear around for a timber plantation ,
out certainly to the north and west , at
least two rows of willows ; the rows to
bo four fcot apart , and about a foot in
the row. Then leave a space beyond
that which should not be planted to tim
ber nt least four rods wide , where
the snow will gather and not break
down the young trees. Again , in the
mutter of mixing of timber. I do not
believe that we can grow walnuts and
evergreens as successfully as single
specimens as wo can when wo mix them
with other trees. If I wcro to start a
timber plantation to-day on the prairie ,
I would start with my willows on the
outside , cottonwoods , maples , then wal
nuts , starting nt tlio sumo time a
nursery of small evergreens and then
transplanting after the third year and
inixincr in the evergreens with the out
side trees The best plantations I have
scon throughout the northwest wore
planted in that way.
Pall Onro of Slirubi.
It is a mistake to lot shrubs go with
out attention during the summer and
growing season , says the Lady's Homo
Journal. Then it is that they should
bo brought into good shape , for , by
watching thorn us growth is made , ono
can see where pruning and training is
required , and the necessary work can
bo done at just the time when it will do
most good , for shrubs nro moro tracta
ble while forming branches than they
are afterward. If you allow a shrub to
grow to suit itso\f \ 'jill summer , and at
tempt to rectify .what you consider its
mistake in the fall , you will find that a
great deal of Upsummer growth may
have to bo removed to secure anything
like symmetrical shape , and of course
thcso surplus branches indicate a good
deal of growth wMch lias been wajtcd.
So much of the 'vitality of the plant as
was taken to produce them had boon
expended uselessly1 , proper attention at
the proper time would have thrown
this energy into'thp shrub.
But wo must take things as wo find
thornnnd fall fin.d.s most shrubs in need
of a judicious pruning , If wo would have
them take on a shapely form. There
fore , when gottjrig roauy to give thorn
the winter protection , whioli most of
thorn require to a greater or lessor ex
tent , give them a good piuning and
make them symmetrical. It Is well to
do this before the coming of cold
weather , so that the fresh cuts on the
limbs will have a little chance to healer
or at least dry ever before they are laid
down and covered.
Homes With II < ayes ,
A horse with a bad case of heave is of
little value for business. But a diet
largely ot oats aid | bran , wetted to the
consistency of thick mush , with half
the quantity ot bright hay sprinkled
with water , usually fed to a sound horse ,
and but little water given at a tlmo for
drink , will , in nine cases out of ton , lit
the animal for daily labor , unless it bo
a few exceptional days of close , muggy
weather. The stable at all times is the
best place for a horse with heaves ,
as thu groom has control of the quua-
tity and quality of food , which
Is not the case when the nnimal ia in
pasture. If the liny bo Hglitly throshoil
nnd well shaken to rid it of dust , it will
bo far bettor not only for the animal
nflhctod but for nil liorscw. In eomo
cases straw may bo substituted for hay ,
but it is absurd to assort that straw is
bolter than hay for horses generally.
I once used n huavy horse for heavy
service , hauling on the rend and the
farm , that carelessly used would have
boon worthless , says a writer In the Ne
braska Farmer. Great care was taken
in the preparation and quality of food ,
nnd Instead ot stinting in drink it was
given in natural allowance , but nevermore
moro than four or llvo quarts nfft tlmo.
Only ono or two days during the sum *
mar did ho show signs of distress , and
but an hour or two a day nt that. Thou
sands ot useless horses could render
good service if well cared for. Some
give a horse the utmost cnro during the
day , giving but little drink , and after
the day's work , during the summer sea
son , turn the horse into a Hold with ac
cess to n brook. In tlio morning his
foot nro wldo apart and stomach distended -
tended a pitiable object , worthless for
the day , a result duo moro to careless
ness than dlscnso.
Preparing Been Kor tlio Winter.
Successful wintering of bees douonds
largely on preparations mndo before
cold weather sots insuch ns uniting col
onies , feeding , etc. , says tlio American
Agriculturist. Unseated comb during
the winter is not healthful food. What
ever variety of food is given thorn , the
moisture that arises from the bees dur
ing cold weather enters the unsealed
stores , and produces disease. It Is far
bettor to look to this important matter
during the honey season , and prepare
frames of sealed honey to supply all col
onies that need feed. But , in our greed
for a heavy crop , wo are apt to" lese
sight of this , and when feeding time
comes , wo buy sugar , nt high yricos , to
supply thcso wants. The fact has boon
demonstrated time and again , that it is
cheaper to depend upon the honey
source nlono than to use sugar at any
tlmo. Besides , wo are greatly injured
by the popular idea that wo feed sugar
for the production of surplus honey.
Rut , though It is cheaper and bolter to
depend upon the natural honey source
alone , yet , if wo have colonies
without honey enough to carry them
through the winter , and no surplus
honey at hand to give them , wo must
feed them sugar or lese them. Uniting
boos , and supplying all colonies witli
good fertile queens , is of primary im
portance. As wo have the advantage of
movable frame hives , wo should thor
oughly arrange the brood-nest In every
colony so that the brood shall occupy
the center of the hive or combs. If a
frame of brood is carelessly sot on one
side , the bees occupy the other side and
tlio brood separates. After properly
arranging the hive and providing a
good queen , wo nro ready to food. The
food will bo stored around the cluster of
bees. Frames of comb tilled with pollen
near the cluster of bees uro considered
injurious to bees during winter. This
has been our experience , and wo take
particular pains to cither remove such
frames from the hive or place them out
side of.lho brood-nest. 13oes should not
cluster on frames filled with pollen dur
ing winter. They use too much pollen
as food , and it has n tendency to pro
The season is now at hand when blackleg
log may bo expected among calves , and
especially those that have been weaned
and put on high feed , says the Iowa
Homestead. It will bo most likely to
occur on bottom lands where the grass
has boon eaten closely and has made n
a very luxuriant growth after the recent
rains. It will como on the animals sud
denly , atondoncy to sluggishness to-day ,
lanienobs in ono of the legs tomorrow ,
and death tomorrow night. Examina
tion will show the blood in the affected
leg to bo very thick and black. There
is but little hope for successful treat
ment. Whenever ono is affectedchange
the rest to a higher pasture and slow up
on grain food. Give the calves plenty
of oxerslso , and an ounce of hypo-sul-
phito of soda eaih week in thrco doses ,
ono dose every other day. Burn the
bodies of tlic dead calves at once , with
out skinning , nnd by no means allow
any of the blood to touch a sore or a
plueo on the hand where the skin is
broken. Farmers are not aware of the
danger they incur by handling calves
that have died of blackleg , neither are
they aware that the practice of burying
them , or , worse still , allowing them to
become food for dogswolves , and crows ,
is almost guaranteeing an outbreak in
future. Blackleg is not contagious , that
is , ono calf cannot take it from another ,
but the soil can bo contaminated ; and
oven if the animals are buried , earth
worms will bring the contamination to
the surface. There is need of careful
handling of this disease ,
OLD TIME RELIGION.
Quaint Scenes in a Vermont Church
Sixty Yours Ac .
As soon as the text was given out ,
Deacon Batchollorvlio was old and
very deaf , rose from his pew , walked
heavily down the aisle , and half as
cended the pulpit steps. Then ho ad
justed an enormous tin oar-trumpet ,
and sat there through the long sermon ,
a pious and attentive , but most gro
tesque , figure. The singers' seats
stretched entirely across the church in
front of the pulpit two long rows , with
a rack or desk for hyrnn books be
tween them. The men singers sat
with their backs to the pul
pit , while the women' faced them.
When the lender struck his tuning-fork
and gave the key , all stood up and lit
erally bawled and sang in each others'
faces. All the old mournful minor
tunes were great favorites , and the
rhymed stories of hell tire , damnation ,
and lost souls gave the greatest satis
faction to both singers and parson , says
the Congregational Review. Questions
of doctrine wcro Elder Whitoinch's
greatest joy and most frequent discus
sion , and several times a year ho
preached on the "unpardonable sin , "
but wo must remember that ho had
none of the sins of great cities to form
subjects of sermons to preach against
not even that of intemperance , for the
simple reason that it was then consid
ered n sin in no ono to drink strong
liquors , grovldcd a man stopped short
of-grosa intoxication. Habitual drink-
era were all these Now Eng
land farmers. In nearly every
household in the winter months
little pewter flagon or tankard tilled
with boiling water ( and with straw-
covered handle to prevent burning the
hand ) was brought in to the farmer nt 8
o'clock , the regular bedtime. Then a
great pitcher of rum toddy or elder flip
was brewed , andovoryonomen , women
nnd children , drank of it , and thus
wont warmed to their ico-cold cham
bers , where the snow sifted into little
drifts on the floor. No farm hand
would work nt plowing and haying
without three glasses of rum u day.
Even the low worl.wjmon who took
tlioir rounds among these farms
a tailoress , wool weaver , an In
dian "squawnurse" all demanded ,
received and drank their daily
glass of rum. Bears were
not Infrequent vistors in Ver
mont in those days , and many a boar's
tracks and depredations were reported
at the Sunday "nooning , " and the hunt

PRINCES AND CIRCUS-RIDERS.
An KitUodo In Which n Iiovo-SIok
llntzt'olilt IMnys n I'nrt ,
Prlnco TIatzfoldt had a nart to play In
a romantic episode , says n Berlin lot-
tor. The lliroo Loissat sisters were till
circus-riders , but they were all thrco
strictly virtuous , well brought up.
graceful , clever and pretty. The old
est slstor married a Ivronuli gentlemnn
and retired from the circus ring and
two'of the most aristocratic and highly
born ( one indeed , being of quasi-royal
birth ) patricians oC Germany full in love
with the two younger sUtors Prlnco
Ilonry , of Kouss , and this very Ilntz-
foldt. When old Kaiser Wilholm heard
ofthese , projected misalliances ho was
very angry. Von Kouss , openly ignor
ing the expressed commands of his sov-
crlgn , married the second .Mile. Lois-
sot , sacrificing by so doing his princely
rank and title , and taking up his resi
dence in Belgium with his wife HB sim
ple Count and Countess of Hcichcnfcls.
But Non Rouss felt acutely the change
in his social position , and , although the
Countess of Koichcnfols was the most
devoted of wives , the prince destroyed
himself a few years ago.
The youngest of these thrco circus-
riding sisters , Mile. Emllio Loissct , was
also by far the prettiest , the most grace
ful and the most sought after. Prince
Ilutzfoldt laid his heart and coronet in
the srwdust at the fcot of the fair
ccuyoro and she promised to become his
wife. But Mllo. Loissut , while trying a
dangerous horse in the arena of the
winter circus , in Paris , one afternoon ,
was severely crushed bv the animal
falling on nor. Tliron days later she
succumbed to her terrible injuries.
Hatzfoldt swore ho would never marry ;
and , buying the horse which had caused
all this mischief , he , in a very silly and
melodramatic fashion , destroyed the
poor brute which had crushed to death
his allianced bride.
