©Mmmmmm, CHAPTER X.—(Continued,I There, in his father's room, at mid­ night, the fire was roarihg and the gas blazing the papersi the sacred papers .—to lay a hand on which was criminal —had all been taken off and piled along the floor a cloth was spread, and a rapper laid, upon the business table and in bis father's chair a woman, habited like a nun, sat eating. As lie appeared in the door-way, tlie nun rose, save a low cry, and stood staring. She was a large woman, strong, calm, a little masculine, her features marked with courage and good.sense and as John blinked back at her, a faint re­ semblance dodged about his memory, as when a tun^ haunts us, and yet will not be recalled. "Why, it's John!" cried the nun. "I dare say I'm mad," said John, un oonsciously following King Lear "but, upon my word. I don't believe you're Flora." "Of course I am," replied she. And yet it is not Flora at all, thought John Flora was slender, and timid, and of changing color, and dewy-eyed and had Flor...

We note that a contemporary says that eggs from towa and Illinois are "better-flavored and larger than from the other stated. He also asserts that €ggs that have been produced on corn bring better prices than eggs from hens that have to rustle for a living. We are afraid the man that so reports is permitting his fancy to create facts for him. The farmer has, not' yet found out that the public appreciates an egg produced from good food more than an egg produced from any other kind off food. Indeed we hope to see the time come when the distinction will be made, but it is not yet. Because the fall months are at hand, do not conclude that lice will not multiply on the hens. Remember that they have the atmosphere of the wa...

All agricultural plants draw much of their food from the atmos­ phere, and of those used by the farmer probably none are much exceeded by clover in the large proportion of nutri­ ment thus derived. In this respect other leguminous crops, are much like red clover. Clover seed is the best manure that a farmer can use. Clover has been called a trap for nitrogen, aa it collects and presents large quan­ tities of combined nitrogen in a form ready «to nourish growing crops, in the words of Dr. Ketlzie, "With an adequate supply of combined nitiogen a...

•lb:. A \. yl •jiztffcl ILV". »f VOLUME TX. A SMOKE CONSUMER. Powdered coal is .the fuel of -the fu­ ture, according to the officials of the Illinois Central railroad,1 who have been experimenting for the last month with a device for making use of coal dust. Two boilers at the railroad's power house, Chicago, have been, equipped with the new invention, and tests of efficiency and economy in the use of coal will be continued for the next thirty days. At the end of that time the railroad men claim they will have demonstrated that coal when ground fine enough is the best and cheapest fuel available, as well as be­ ing absolutely smokeless. The subject of coal-dust firing has occupied the attention of engineers all over the world for years, but the idea has only recently been put into prac­ tical shape. For coal-dust firing the coal must be ground to a powder as fine as wheat flour. The appliances now in use at the railroad power house are simple. A large hopper above the door of the fi...

ifSSI •GRAND MARIAS, 1 MINNESOTA} Wh^n patronizing a Boston hotel don't forget that "culinary symposi wm" on the hill of fare means hash. 'A lady writer says that it must have been a woman who invented the alphabet, for had it been a man he would have begun with the letter That burglar who held up a Chinese taundryman and received a pail of hot •talrch in'reply was probably the most "stuck up" criminal in the city for a time. The solemn look on the father's face when he gives his daughter away at the marriage altar is amusing when one recalls how anxious he was to g3t rid of her the past ten years. Even the president of the United States cannot declare war until he is authorized so to do by congress. Yet miners or mineowners can at any time precipitate industrial war. The time Is coming when they will not be per­ mitted to do so. Compulsory arbitra­ tion will make strikes unnecessary. The American manufacturer has lost no opportunity at the world's fair in Paris, and in numbers is f...

S sr iw Wi it Br ii IPS® r- The marriage of the upper classesvin China is surrounded by a number of very elaborate ceremonies, though .... n:: ijthose of humbler station content them ffy selves with more primitive rites. '"'Among the classes supposed to be bet­ ter off p. great feast is one of the most important items of the day's proceedings. This, which answers to the wedding breakfast, is spread on tables at the east and West of the din­ ing hall. But, curiously enough, neither bride nor bridegroom is per­ mitted to taste of the delicacies there­ on displayed. Instead a meal for the "happy man" is spread in the court­ yard. Before the ceremony he jnakes obeisance to his father and the wed­ ding guests, kneeling down and knock­ ing his head six times against the ground. The father hands him a gob­ let of wine and tells him to send for his bride., The formula in the bidding never alters. It is in the following words: "Go, my son, and' seek your wife, and behave in all things with p...
