GOLD CLAY SOILS. How They ]lay be Made Iertile and Valuable. Mr. T.'Beard, of Iiardinsburg, Ky., asks about "flow to Fertilize Cold l Soil with Cow Peas." I have given the subject much thought attd practical experiment for '20 years; have read all I could find on the cow pea, and watched others experiment with these peas. Mr. Beard will find iu the Year Book of 18t6. issued by the agricultural department, a valuable rtiele on the cow pea. As i said, I commenced 20 years ago to experiment with the cow pea whenthey were little known and not valued. ] commenced on a poor run-down place 20 yearff ago, now I am told often I have the most productive pl.,cc in the county. 1 had neither money or health nothaving been able to do a day's work since tile war. I owe it all to peas and clovcr, on Vhich my neigh- bore classed me a crank for years-- now they are converts to my ideas. Fill your soil full of nitrogenous vege- table matter, and then it will honor any draft you may draw on it. No vegetable matter equal to peas, clover coming a close second. The finest piece of wheat I ever saw was wheru an early crop was taken off, titan in July peas were sown, and in Septem- ber all vins turned under, and sown to wheat in October. This was on good land, but to come to cold clay land my plan would be to sow broadcast in June one-half bushel eas and plow all under last of September, then drill in 1O0 pounds bone meal with the wheat. For very cold clay land the oeas should be drilled thickly and given two cultiva- tions. This will insure a vigorou. growth. Drilling in about May 15, then a good crop of peas may be gath- ered or pastured off with hogs. I have experimented with every kind of pea-- none is better or so good as the black, ley never rot, will lie in the ground anti come up a bigstand the next year. All other kinds rot easily. I now plant nearly altogether in my corn--holding no hill of corn should be planted with- out peas--there by getting two good crops on the same land and at the same time increasing tfie fertility of the soil. The cow pea wilt solve the old problem: Itow can we get a good re. turn from the land, and at tits same time retain its fertility.--Cor. Farm- ers' Home Journal. CURING BACON. The Dry Process Produces an ExeeIlent Ar- ticle. The dry process of'converting pork into bacon makes an excellent article sweet and firm. Everyone knows how different is the taste of fresh dry salt from tiat of salt in a dissolved state, After the carcass of the hog has been divided, place the pieces of pork in- tended for bacon to one side. Rub them well with coarse salt, and let the blood drain for 24 hours. Mix one and a half pounds coarse brown sugar, six ounces saltpeter, and one and a half pouuds salt. After these ingre- dicuts are well mixed, rub into tits pork well, especially on the flesh sides. Pile these pieces of pork on top of one another in a salting trough, with a groove or gutter rouud it,s edges to do away with the brine. To aitow this brine to soak into the meat will impart a vile taste. Turn tim meat every two days, rubbing in more of the salt and sugar preparation. The proportion given is sufficient for 14 pounds of bacon. The sugar pos- ses.ess preserving qualities in a vm'y great degree, without the pungency and astringency of salt, and imparts a nildness and mellowness to the cured meat. Too much salt contracts the fi bet's of the meat. th us rendering it hard and tough. The meat remains in this state for two or three weeks, according to circumstances. In dry weather it re- quires a longer time than during damp weather. The pines f,,r salting should always be cool, but well vetilatcd. Confined air, though cool, wiii taint meat sooner than the midday sun aecompamed by a breeze. When tim meat is sufficiently salted, ipe it dry and smoke for two or three weeks, according to size. The meat must be hung to smoke in a dry place, where no water will touch it, and the smoke must proceed from wood. Before you hang the meat to smoke, .rub the flesh side welt with bran. This prevents the smoke from getting into the little openings and make a crust that dries on. As to time required to smoke tim bacon, it depends upon the size. and whether there is a constant smoke. If tlts smoke is con- stnt ald rich--from hard wood--it re- quires about two weeks' time. The bacon must not be dried up, and yet it must be perfectly dry.Eleanor M. Lures, in Farmers' Home Journal. THE FARM'WOr2K SHOP. Au Itiportnt Adjunct to Every Well- lteguhted arm. A work shop on every farm is agreat convenieme; every progressive farmer ha one, and those who want to keep upwith the aAvancement of agricul- tural interests will follow suit. To build a workshop is an easy job; it doesn't take long and costs but little, if constructed as that dear old cabin in which I used to work. My workshop was about 8x10 feet and six feet from the floor of the loft, covered with oak boards and having no floor save the ground. It was sided up with one- inch oak boards, which were sawed from timber cut in the woods, the spaces between the planks being cov- ered with thin oak strips. The shop was provided with an anvil, two strong hammers, a vice, ptanes, saws. screw- drivers, chisels, a shaving horse, brace and a set of 15 bits, ranging from an ighth of an inch to an inch, spoke shaves, a square and rule, ctc, all of which may be bought new for about 112. I also had a harness-maker's outfit in the shop, s() when harness needed repairing i did not have to go eight or ten miles to have it done. Whenever any of the machinery get out of order it could generally be repaired at home, and thus save money any time. For instance, when wheat is dead ripe and ought to be cut as soon as possible, the binder breaks, a rod or some minor )art gets out of order; then to the blacksmith shop, unless you are pretty well skilled in the work of repairing iron and have a shop and tools of your awn, in which case much valuable time i ved, A work-shop is, in my.judgment, as essential to the farm as a spring or isteru, and [ am ardentiy in favor of the latter. When there is work to be done in the shop in winter, a small tv  y put ut ;l:bu 0IOf able quarters are prepared for the work- man. Oftentimes the farm harness break, e)mctimes when the farmer is in bite midstofa very busy seasou. Now comes the chance to usa the shop; or when there is no particular need for the broken harness, a rainy day will eomc about when the farmer may go to the shop and do his wm-k in tim dry, having the necessary tools at hand. Farm implements, no difference hOw strong they may be, or how sub- stantially they may be constructed, will frequently get out of order, thus occasioning tle use of a blacksmith or wood workman. Now, all such work can be anti ought to be done by the farmers themselves, and if they wod equip themselves with the tools, etc., which can be obtained for a small outlay, they could do it. Let every farmer be his own blacksmith, carpenter and saw sharpener, if you please. During rainy days on the farm there should bc work to do, and the:e is. The cross-cut saw needs sharpen- ins, the harness require mending, and the axes ought to be ground, and a doz- en other things of this character might be attended to. In the work sho p is the phtee to do it, The farmer needs to become an enthusiast on the subject of agriculture, and all the brancites connected tlterewith: he must be dom- inated by that spirit of onwardncas" which knows no limit; hc must keep abreast of tim times and take alL the near shoots possible to the goal of suc- ces Let us be alcrt and wide awake; farming will surely reward all who iu fact fsrm. The vocation is now regard- e as the most independent of any.-- DeWitt G. Wing, iu Agricultural Epil omist. The Ice-l/arise. The number of farms on which ice houses are to be found and the ice crop is regularly harvested is ' asmg the farmers become better arc with the advautages of iaving a sup- ply of "hard water" in hot weather and the fact is that it can be stored and kept very economically. Last falL we indicated how a cheap ice house could be made by digging in the face of a bank, or even on level ground, wilere tie subsoil is sufliciently porous to absorb the water resulting from the melting of the ice. This plan will not work, however, unless the ground is uncommonly porus, lu one case whero we saw it tried a pump had tobaput in to remove the water. Abotter way is to, if possible, locate the house where it cau bo drained, if ueeessary. The "house" to we refer was dug severer feet deep, posts were set above and the walls run about four feet above tile surface wilen a roof of cheap lumber was put on. The thicker tits ice the better i| will keep, othr things being equal, because there will bc fewer interstices in the lnass. Solidity shuuld be aimed at in packing, tim spaces between the blocks being litled with broken ice or snow. Around and over the bpdy at ice at least two feet of sawdust, o smncwhat more of eimffy straw, should be used. In cutting ice it pays to measure carefully, as the ice packs much better when the blocks are square and uniform in size. It is well also, to remember that men do not gather pure ice from foul water. Epi teaLs t. Leaves ,ud Cut. Mtrv*w for the lonItry II o UO, There is one point of advantage iu the use of cut straw or leaves which largely influences laying in and that is the warmth retained in the )oultry house, it is not that these naterialiy create warmth, but they deep the winds from coming iu along the floor, and as they also absorb dampness they prevent the settling at moisture on th0 walls. Let anyone go into a stable or stall that has four or five inches or more of leaves on the floor, and the stall will be found warm- er and more comfortable than one hav- ing the floor bare.--Farm and Fireside HERE AND THERE. --As a rule the first 100 pounds of sheep and the first 200 of swine cost less and soil for more than that added later.

When the winter hauling and other team work is mostly confined to tim farm, it is often best to let the horses go barefooted all winter, but it does not pay to use a barefooted horse much on rough roads. --George Franklin says the man who has had a taste of spring lamb, like the sheep-killing (log, never for- gets it, and he may as well be fed on a well-cooked saddle-flap as to again go back to aged mutton. --There Ls apparently little foundao tips for the claim made by some feed- ers that mos of the nutriment has been taken out of the gram which passes he atttmat whole: often the loss is sufficient to twice pay for grinding he feed. Fresh eggs and fresh-killed poultry will always bring a good price. If the quality (of eggs) is regular---no new nest ones--the price will be way above market quotations. This is where the farmer has the advantage. Make your own market in the nearest town. The hoofs of the horses must be WOMAN AND tlOME. FIRST WOMAN'S CLUB. lit Was lounded in Philadelphia Over a Century Ago. The first woman's club founded in America, or at least the first about which we have suthentio iuformation, was held in the city of Penn I02 years ago, under the name of "The Female Society for the Relief and Improvemcut of thePoor." It was begun and organ- ized by a Quaker spinster, Anne Parish, who was born in 1760 and dled jus*. be- fore the nineteenth century began, at the end of the year 1800. The ociefy eonsisted first of 23 young, aeeom- plished women of the best families, who met every week to go about among the poor and needy. When the city was visited by yellow fever, shortly after the formation of the club, the mettle of its members was tried and found to rag true; while most who had the means fled from the town, these 23 Quaker women stayed with Anne Par- ih and fought the plague, .aising money, visiting lhe dying, clothing the well and comforting the bereaved. From that tints to the present the so- ciety has endured and continued in the wnrk thus early initiated; the grand- daughters and great-granddaughters ef the first founders, who have inherited lhe club membership along with their Quaker traditions, their fine old family names that still count in Philadelphia society, are now prepanng to celebrate the club's one hundred and second birthday. The membership is passed down through the eldest daughter, aud the methods are not altered from those first chosen; there is no president nor wee president, the only officers being two clerks, a treasurer and a commit- tee of 13; the prominent work of the club is the maintenance of a "house industry," where nearly 100 old uaker women of indigent circum- stances go daily to sew, knit and mend in comfortable quarters in the house on North Seventh street, which the club has lodged in since the middle of this century. The women are paid good wages for their work and are given a good meal in the middle of the day, be- sklcs being provided with easy-chairs while they work. The society women provide them with sewing and bachelors send thither for their mending.--Phil- adelphia Ledger. FANCY THEATER YOKE. How Thts Very Chic Little Article Wa Pat Together.

A New York malinee girl went the first night to see Sothern's "Lady of Lyons" in a yoke of heavy cream ares grain silk embroidered in dull gold. The work was put on by hand, and each thread stood out in coarse decorative FANCY TH EATER YOKE. beauty. The yoke was in two sections--- a round eollaretie and s deep-pointed front. There were ruffled epaulets upon the shoulders nnd the back, exact- ly matching the front. Around the front were tinyruffies of mousseline de sole. A broad frill of the same edged the tall silk collar. A tiny toque of white silk embroid- ered with the same gold thread was worn, and on fhe side of it stood one proud Prince-of-Wales plume. Cruelty Is Due to Wonten. At the congress of the Ameriean Ornithologists' union Chairman Wil- Duicher read his report, which he prefaced with this statement: "The continued use of feathers and birds on women's hats is, I think, due to an unwillingness on their part to assume individual responsibility. Most women know the cruelty entailed in obtaining the plumes that ornament thelr hats, but excuse themselves on the ground that 'it was not committed for meper- sonally; it would have occurred ny- how.' " Reports from western states were discouraging in that they told that the use of aigrettes and feathers oa hats was more popular this year than ever before. Treatment at Stnlned Floor.

Very dainty women do not like dress- ing sac(tues fhat will not wash. They much prefer slnlpler fabrics that "do up" to soiled silk and mussed-up velvet. It is understood ihat a dressing sacque means a garment that protects the un- derwear when the hair is combed. A decidedly French dressing sacque has a yoke of embroidered brown Linen, upon which plaits of old rose flannel are FOR COMBING THE HAIB atfached so as to forms waist. These plaits are put on separafely and are gathered in under a crushed belt. Un- derneath there is a very dainty sun- plaited li=ing of old rose silk. This lin- ing shows between the plaits. The s/ceres are full and ther6 are wide turn- back cuffs of embroidered linen that can be pulled to the shoulders. The yoke can be trimmed with bands of wash silk, if desired, to match the belt. An experienced laundress will "set" her colors before washing the goods, just as they do at the cleaner's. A BELATED GIFT, A 811vet Calendar "to Delight the Heart of the Bicycle Girl.

The lamp will probably stand ales% nnd if it docs not you can get any tin- smith to fasten a little eascl attachment to the back of it. Compressed Flour. The importance of lightness and compactness in the kit of soldiers has stimulated the manufacturers of army food stuffs to produce all manner of concentrated products for use on the march or in camp. Of these the latest is compressed flour, which is n'owbeing tested by the British war depaxtmcnt. The objection to the establishment o national granaries is the impossibility of storin,g wheat for any length of time. The gram soon germinates and is ruined. The flour is now molded into bricks by hydraulic pressure, in which shape it is unaffected by damp, is mold- proof and sweet and wholesome. The eompression is saJd to destroy all forms of larval life. and the flour becomes im- mune against the attacks of insects. Since the 'cubic space occupied by 00 pounds of loose flour will hold more than 300 pounds of the compressed compressed flour, it will be seen that the saving in storage is enormous..

The brain being the nutritive center of the body, the other organs become gradually in- jured, and when some disease of these organs or a combination of them arises, death finally ensues. Occasional wor- rying of the system the brain san cope with, but the iterafion and reiteration of one idea of a disquieting sort the cells of the brain are not proof against. --Pharmaceutical Products. How Alum Affeeta Plnnts. IIerr M. Moliseh has found by ex- periment that alum in the soil invaria- bly changes the naturally ptnk color of the flowers of Hydrangea hortensis to blue. The efficient constituent in the alum is the aluminium sulphate. Fcr- ric sulphate produces similar results. Other salts of iron are generally nega- tive. The cause of the natural pink col- or in the flowers is anthocyan. This, chemically combined with the salts in question, produces a blue flower. The stamens are most sensitive to change in color.

WINS ANOTHAI]t CASE, Infringements on Their Bitters NO Tolernted by United States Court. The United States Circuit Court for the Southern District of New York, Judge Townsend presiding, handed down an opm- ion December 23d, 1897, granting injunction nd accounting, in the suit of The tIostetter Company against Isaac Sommers and Louis Joseph for infringement of its Trade Mark.. The jurist states, in bold and clear language, the rights accruing to the Itostetter Coal. pany, and the liability incurred by all who would rob them, by fraud or misrepresenta- tion, of the well-earncd reputation and profits of a business built up bv the efforts of half a century. The judge says, in part: "The complainant is entitled to protec- tion against the approIiato of its trade mark, by any and all ur.fai: nd dishonor- able means, and a court of , tity has pow- er to grant such protection henever it is satisfied that an attempt has been made by ingenious subterfuges, to invade the rights of an owner of a trade mark. * * In the sharp contest between the individual ihanufactttrer, who strives to acquire and retain the fruits o industry and hon- esty, and the field of keen rivals, seeking to wrest from him the prize of the public goodwill, the inventive ingenuity of the infringer has conceived a great variety of devices for evading the established rules of fair dealing. * * Courts of equity find- ing that their ultimate object and effect were to enable and induce the retail seller of a fraudulent imitation to palm it off on an unsuspecting public for the genuine article, and thus to contribute to the infringement upon the rights of the original owner, have not hesitated to apply the remedy."

How it was overcome by a Nova 5cotian mother Who is well known as an author. Of all the evils that attack children scarcely any other is more dreaded than croup. It so often comes in the night. The danger is so great. The climax is so sudden. It is no wonder that Mrs. W. J. Dickson (better known under her pen name of "Stanford veleth,") calls it "the terror of mothers." Nor is it any wonder that she writes in terms of praise and gratitude for the relief which she has found both from her own anxieties, and for her children's ailments, in Dr. . C. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. It would be im- possible to better state the value of this remedy than is done iu Mrs. Dickson's letter, which is as follows : "Memory does not recall the t.lme wheu Dr. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral was not used n our family, for throat and lung troubles, and the number of empty Cherry Pectoral bottles collected during the season, told where relief had been sought. This medicine was in such constant use in my father's family, that when I had a home of my own, and had childish ailmemts to attend to, St still proved efficacious. That terror of mothers--the startling, croupy cough--nen*r alarmed me, so long as T hada bot of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral in the hou to supple- ment tl'e hot-water bath. Whir. suffering with whooping cough, in its worst form, and articulation was impossible on account f the choking, my children would point snd gesticulate toward the bottle; for experience had taught tlem that relief was in its contents."--Mrs- W. : Dzcso (" Stanford Eveleth "), author of ' Romans of the Provinces," Truro, N. S. To show the prompt action of Dr. Ayer' Cherry Pectoral in severe cases, we print a letter from C. J. Wooldridge, Wortham, Tex., who writes : "One of my children had croup. One night I was startled by the child's hard breathing, and on going to it found it strangling. It had nearly ceased to breathe. Having a part of a bottle of Dr. Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral in the house, I gave the child three doses, st short intervals, and anxiously waited results. From the me- meat the Pectoral was given the child's breathing grew easier, and in a short time it was sleeping quietly and breathing nat- urally. The child is alive and well aud 1 do ot hesitate to say that Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved its life."--2. J. WOOLnRIDGE Wortham, Tex. These statements make argument in favor Of this remedy unnecessary. It is a family medicine that no home should be without. It is just as efficacious in bron- chitis, asthma, whooping cough, and all other varieties of coughs, as itis in croup. To put it within everyone's reach, Dr. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is now put up ia half size bottles, at half price--5o cents, Send for Ayer's Curebook (free)and read of other cures effeeted by Dr. Ayer'a Cherry Peotoral.
