Bits of Fun. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

Bits of Fan. A gentleman having- boasted in his pres ence of having shot seventy hares before breakfast, Lord Norbury caused a laugh by observing, very drily, " I daresay you fired at a wig." Lady of the house, urging company to eat-Please help yourselves. Do just as you would in your own house. I am always so glad'when my friends are at home.-Seranton Truth. He-What a lovely fan you have, Miss Edith ! She-Tes; I like it. Papa gave it to me. It came from Paris, and is hand painted. He-Indeed ! And how nicely it matches your complexion. Reynolds, the dramatist, observing to Mar tin the thinness of the house at one of his own plays, added, " He supposed it was owing to the war." "No," replied the latter, " it is owing to the piece." "How old is your intended, Clara?" "Aboutforty, I believe." "And you are only twenty! Dear me, Clara, when you are forty he will be sixty." " Oh, well, perharps he won't live that long, you know." Epoch. A Seventeenth-ward school teacher recently asked her...

TALE. The Withered Hand. Being a Lawyer's Story of a Terrible Vengeance. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

TALE. The Withered Hand. Being a Lawyer's Story of a Terrible Venseaaee. There was quite a crowd around Mr. Bermutier, the great criminal lawyer, as he diecuhstd the mysterious S;;iiit Cioud affair. For & month this intTpHcabie crime was the sensation of Paris. 2x<jbcdy could make anything out of it. Mr. Bermutier, with 3ii.« back to the fire place, arrayed proofs atid cited different opinions, but drew no conclusion. Several ladies had risen and drawn near him, and remained staridiutr, with their eyes fixed upon the smoothly-shaven mouth of the attorney, whence fell such weighty words. The women shivered, chilled by their inquisitive fright, by that iuiatiable hunger for the dreadful, which hauuts their souls. One of them, paler than the rest, exclaimed^: 'It is frightful. It approaches the supernatural. It will never be cleared up.' The great lawyer turned toward her: 'Yes, it will probably always remain a mystery,' he said. ' Bat the word super natural, that yo...

ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

ODDS AND ENDS. The export of African diamonds for 1887 was 3,599,036 carats, of the value of £4,251,837. A great drought prevails in the north of China, which is having the good effect of faci litating repairs of the destruction caused by the Yellow River inundations. TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN FBANCE.-In France many of the public schools have a Technical and Educational Department. It has been calculated that from CO to 75 per cent of the boys have gone into commercial nouses, and that 25 per cent have taken up industrial pursuits. There are in Paris higher schools or colleges, the main object of which is to attract to the pursuits of commerce some of the better educated youths belonging to families of social position, who are too generally disposed to enter the overstocked ranks of the so-called 'learned' professions. PBACTICAL EDUCATION IN GTBEMAITY.-The Germans are rapidly developing a system of evening continuation classes which cany an education for two or three years longer. In S...

Warm Water for Milch Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

Warm Water for Milcli Cows. Experiments to test the value of warm water as a drink for milch' cows, conducted by Professor Shelton of the Kansas Agricul tural College, had the following results: Common well water raised to 80 degrees was first given, and when the cattle got used to it the temperature of the water was raised to 90 degrees, and in some cases to 100 degrees. At first considerable difficulty was experienced in getting the cattle to drink the warm water, and it was found necessary to delay watering until they were very thirsty. When, how ever, they had become accustomed to the unusual heat of the water, they seemed to become exceedingly fond of it, and to drink it greedily. The result of warming the water was to increase the flow of milk by 8 per cent. It was found that a bushel of coal per day, burned in an economical stove, would warm sufficient water for twenty-five cows.

To Increase the Egg Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

To Increase the Esg Supply. There is little doubt that the production of eggs may be largely increased by a systematic, scientific plan of feeding1; and the average poultry-keeper should give this matter a great deal of stady and attention. The scientific part of it need not frighten any one who is -walling to read, study, and put into practice "what he learns. Those who are recognized authorities assert that the egg product of a hen in her prime is about three times her own weight yearly; and, in view of this fact, the importance of supplying her with food rich in all the elements that make the egg is at once apparent. An egg contains all the elements of a living chick-flesh,, bone, sinew, blood and feather-beside the shell matter, which is mostly lime. The principal elements in the egg are sulphur, oil, phosphorous, lime and nitrogen. The food that is given the hen shonld contain all the elements that exist in the egg. These are found in wheat, oats, corn, braa, linseed, crushed b...

FARM AND GARDEN Vicious Horned Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

FARM AND GARDEN Vicious Horned Stock. Almost every week we read of some person or animal being gored by a vicious boll or cow. I have been, caring' for bolls ever since I was big enough, which is over thirty years. I have hardly ever seen one that was kept tied, but what he became ugly. And many will get so running' in the pasture. Now I have a plan for dealing with vicious horned stock. If a bull, I tie him by the neck to something solid, or throw him and tie him down. I then saw his horns off close to his head. I do this the first time he gets ugly. I don't wait until he gores something. It does not injure his looks. "When you get him up, a child can drive bim. The fight is all gone. If a nice cow, I saw the shell close to her head. Then take a hammer and strike the end of the horn and remove the shell. Some say this is cruel. Yes, I presume it doeB hurt some, but nature soon forms a covering, as it is a frequent occurrence for cows to knock the shells off the horns, and by the ti...

A Point on Transplanting. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

A Point on Transplanting. The south side of a tree is exposed to the direct rays of the sun, while the north side is more or less protected from them. Nature accommodates itself to this changed condition, and the difference in development in many trees on the south and north sides is obvious to ordinary observation. "When the south side of a tree is turned to the north, each side finds itself in a position for which nature has made no preparation, and death follows almost as certainly as if the top were put in the ground and the roots turned up to the sky. The willow and some other trees will grow if planted upside down, and many trees will grow with the south side turned to the north ; but with the trees difficult to trans plant at best, it is a mistake very apt to be fatal to turn the south side to the north, and the older the tree, the greater the damage from changing sides in transplanting. Scientific American.

Good Advice to Orchardists. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

Good Advice to ©rcliardlsts There is no great mystery about practical entomology, at least to an extent such as mil serve general purposes. You ought to see first that your tree, when you plant it, is not infested. Get yourself a cheap magnifying glass; buy Matthew Cook's book on insects, injurious and beneficial to fruit, and study it. Ordinarily you will, with the aid of your pocket-glass and this book, be able to name the insect and at once find the remedy in the book. The remedies are inexpensive. Tou should have a spray pump and a syringe, and you are equipped. When I hear a man talking about his not being able to rid his orchard of injurious insects, I at times think that the Xjord made a mistake in not making the man the insect and the insect the man. If you watch from the start and apply remedies at once when the pest appears the work is easy. If you find something you can't name and don't know in habits of history, write to the State Fruit Inspector and send him a specimen ...

The Inner Man. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

Tlic inner Mail. At the time of the French revolution, the art of cooking had reached considerable per fection, but was confined to the houses of the nobility- Their head cooks were artists, but with, the destruction, of the noble houses their occupation was gone. They then es tablished restaurants in Paris, that is, they restored the noble art of cooking, and threw the royal dining-rooms open to the public. These restaurants became very popular, and their proprietors soon became rich. Others were soon established in London, and in other cities, and cooking took its place as one oi the fine arts. The French have a delicate taste, and are superior to other nations in this grand department of human happiness. Good cooking and morality axe inseparable. What the doctors of medicine call indigestion the doctors of divinity call original sin. Solomon David said: "Show me your cook and I'll tell you what you are." Ben En gell, when asked where is there a sanitarium ? replied, wherever ther...

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

LADIES' COLUMN. mTrnm Dinner-parties are much thn order of the day (writes Arlo Bates from Boston to the Providence Journal), and the soul of" the hostess is vexed and tormented to find some thing novel and pleasing whereby to give piquancy and freshness to the dinner-table. Two or &ree ingenious things done here lately are worth recording, as they may afford hints to those who entertain, and perhaps amusement to those who do not. Many of the things done are mere variations of old ideas, but it is not well to expect too much originality. The serving of mayonnaise in paper swans, boats, drums, and the like is pretty, and now provides talk, but it is not especially novel. There was, however, some thing more fresh than wholly dignified in the whimsical trick of sending one of the mechanical hopping rabbits down a dinner table with a basket of bon-bons in his mouth. Nobody wanted to stop him, and distribution, so far as it was accomplished at all, took place by the scattering of...

POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 4 May 1888

POPULAR SCIENCE. Oars are coming into use in -which, the blade is made from the best sheet steel, highly- tem pered, and is alleged to be much stronger than the ordinary wooden one, and cannot be : broken without undue violence; the handle j fits into a socket running nearly the whole length of the blade, and forming a backbone i of great strength; and the oar, being much thinner in the blade than the wooden one, enters and leaves the water cleaner. The handles are made separately of spruce or ash. A French inventor has applied the minia ture electric incandescant lamp to watch-dials: the current being supplied by a small pocket battery. The dial is of ground glass, and the lamp behind it lights it up; the effect be ing enhanced by a flat reflector. A key is in cluded in the circuit to close the current when the light is required. It is obvious that there are circumstances in which such a device will be useful, and where it is inexpedient to strike a light to see the time-such place...
