Charlemagne was far mote brilliant as he swept Europe with his victorious armies; but he would have been belpless iu the role of wearing out the ehemy through seven long years by avoidance of battle Cromwell excelled him in breadth of scope; yet the Iord protector would have quailed before the task given to Washington when he took the oath of office as chief of a/ittle nation that was bankrupt in treasury and which was rent and torn by internal fac- tions and jealousies. Napoleon founded a great empire upon the ruins of the revolu- tion; yet it endured scarcely more than a decade. The work of Washington, after more than a century, gives promise of un- measured dm-atiou. Alexander, the Caesars, Genghis Khan and Napoleon songht personal glory in conquest, and Cromwell realized his ambition in individual power and domin- ion; but Washington looked only to the liberties of his people and the perpetuation of a simple government whose greatness should be established in the fruitful results growing ott of peace A man of commanding presence, shapely in limb and body, with most benign and in. tel/igent face and well-proportioned head, he was no less symmet.ric in character. What weaknesses pertained to him were concealed by his magnificent slf-control. His temper was high, and there were occa- sions, as at Monmouth. when it displayed itself in hot indignation; but be curbed it before it went beyond the bounds of right eous wrath. The unlicensed vituperation of his enemies wrung from him, sometimes, earnest protest against their injustice; yet so few were these protests in the many years of his sorely tried life that the per- fect self-control of the man has passed into a proverb. He was an ardent admirer of woman, yet sternly chaste in character. Of splendid physique, he loved the good things of the table; but to his appetite he set proper bounds and partook i] modera- tion of what was se before him. Born of gentle parents, his tastes and surroundings were those of an aristocrat; but in the great work of founding a repub- lic, he insisted that the rights of all classes should be respected alike and that no bar should be placed before a man who sought distinction because of his birth or social position. Doubtless the richest man of tris time in America, his manner of living was simple, although gererous. A slave-hQlder, he detested, the institution, and at his death manumitted his "chattels." Brave to dar- ing, he curbed the spirit of battle within him, and forced peace and victory by a suc- cession of masterly movements that were characterized chiefly by evasion of collision with the enemy. Proud, he was affable, ever; reserved, all might approach him. These were not contradictions in his char- acter; rather are they evidences of th, majesty that was in him, which could shape and control disposition to the forming and framing of a perfect man. lie might have founded a monarchy, for the people were ready to acquiesce in any plan of his at the close of the seven years' war brought by his genius to such a happy 'termination. In such u event none would have dared to question his assumption of the kingly power, He chose, rather, to give his voice to a government of the people, whose rulers hou/d be chosen by their suf- frages. Of his own act l sarxendered tim reins of power after eight years of service. when by a word he might have perpetuated himself in the administration until the end of his days. He was not without ambition; but it was of that sublime quality which makes self subordinate to country. He was in public service almost continuously from 1775 to 1797; yet in all these years he longed for the quiet and happiness of his home on the Potomac. The perils of his country having passed, he felt himself free to yield to this temper which was accentuated by the decay incident to age. Yet, when a little later war with a foreign power seemed imminent, he yielded readily to the popular call and accepted the leadership of "the American the cloud passed without he spent the remainder of his number, in his beloved home, where he died the victim of medical stupidity, in the closing days of the last rear of the century which had been made by his illustrious deeds. Whether as private citizen, soldier law- nakcr, or ruler of a predestinedly great re, public, the superb virtues of the man shone ai bright stars. So well poised wife he, that one might find it difficult to determine in what he most excelled. Yet none may doubt that the combination of the whole gives to history the loftiest character to be found in all its pages.

The house of burgesses resolved to return their tlmuks to him in s public manner for the services he bad reudered his country. and this duty devolved on his friend. Mr Robinson, the speaker of te house. Ae soou as Col. Washington had taken his seat, the speaker discharged the duty imposed upon him with all the warmth of panegyric which personal regard and a full appreeia tion of his merits could dictate. This un wonted and unexpected honor completely robbed the young warrior of his self.posses stun. He rose to express his aeknowledg ment, but such was his trepidation and con fusion that he could not give distinct utter ance to a syllable. For a moment he blushed. stammered and trembled, when the speaker relieved bin with a stroke of address that -would have done honor to Louis the Four teenth in his proudest and happiest me ments.

If you do, be sure that all that follows will fall short ot appreciatior. No matter what delight- ful surprises are in reserve, they will bring you no glory; thepraise accord. ed you will be perfunctory. Even at dinner, however, there will be upper, tunities for serving your best soups; but keep the secret to yourself--it xlJ be when the dinner itself is slim or faulty. ,'ever. if you value your character as a housekeeper, allow a greasy soup to appear on your table. The regulax "soup-digester" has a faucet near the bottom where the clear soup, without an3" fat, may be drawn off. But the vessel universally used is a large gran- ite or porcelain-lined pot or kettle, and with these the grease must be different- ly managed. The best way is to strain the soup and let it stand over night. hen all the fat may be lifted in hardened cake from the top. But if stock is required for use the day it i, made the required quantity must be taken out, chilled and skimmed. In an emergency, when there is no time for cooling, take out twice the quantity needed and skim, and skim, and skim *ill no more fat is to be seen--then draw blotting or wrapping paper over the surface to take up the last chance particles left.Ella MorrlsKretsehmar, in Woman's Home Companion.

We should not hear so much about t he"rugged path of genius"if the native powers of children were not. so lovingly and unwisely magnified in the ]iftle world of home. The most unreliable of all critics are one's relatives and friends, vrho are too partisan to judge of one's work fairly, and to kind o point out flaws, even if they see them. In such matters it may be said that the child's enemies are those of his own household. Some parents would urge their tender offspring to expect eternal fame in the art of sculpture on no bet- ter ground than because he could fash- ion a snow-drift into the semblance of a man. These kindly eritics often, too, mistake the child's mere "taste" lor music, literature, etc., for creative pow- er in these branches of art. A sufficient- ly hard lesson for the young enthusiast to learn is the enormous ditference be- tween the creative and appreciative aculties.

Some Prisians are actmll, kept from Wet,tiering by eonvictiofi that there is hidden treasure behind the walls or beneath the flooring or in the chimney nook, 0r tinder the roof. You are told that tturlhg the ntiRibei'. less sieges to which Paris has been ub, ected, and the internal revolutions it has undergone, there exists not a cellar or a gmrret but has become the recep- tacle of some part of the immense riches aecumulated in religious houses and old familles. There is, perha,ps, n0th- ig irrational in the supposition th in the ood, old times when convents were made the degositories not only of the seerets of the aristocracy, but Of th fatuity jewels likewise, instances must have oecurred wherein, these deposits were buried and remair undiscovered, together with t,hc treasures of the oon- fraternity. :But human flly ha of late years exalted this rational pos*sibiliy into dazzling" certainty. F, very mans is now resorted to, and more gld and precious time expended than the most valuable treasure could repay, {n rder to sc,ize the secret which still resists dis. covery. "While you of the matter-of- fact,, plodding" Anglo-Saxou race ire toiIing nd broHng in Australia and California searching" for gold, we gold. seekers of Paris findrit here beneath our feet in the old quarters of the city round )tre Dame and the Hotel de Ville, w, herc gold is teeming in gretcr plenty than amid the rocky bowlders of Cali- fornia, or beneath the soil of BaIarat," said Ducasse, the great treasuxe-seeker. As if to meek this feverish and never- ceasing chase, not one of the great tra- ditional treasures--of which four are believed to existhas ben yet brought to light, alth.ough now and then some token is vouchsafed of their real exit- eace. From time to time, for instance, the tradition of the fnmous treasure buried by :N.poleon's order, on his hur- ried departure fram the Tutlleries be, fore Waterloo, is justfie@ by the turn- ing up in all parts of the palace garden of gld pieces and silver crowns.

J THE SHRIMP- TANK. & Very SlmDle ]But NeveHheIess ][n. terestln&v lxhiblt, There are very few, if any, fishes that don't like shrimp; and shrimps, when they are obtainable, always form part of the food fed to fishes ilz aquariums. At the New York aquarium the shrimp supply for this purpose was formerly kept lr a stock tank in the eorridor at the rear of he exhibition tanks; re- cently, however, the food shrimps were brought to the front and placed in an exhibition tank, where they are still kept; and perfectly simple as itis there are not many exhibits m the aquaraum that attract more atention. There are some marine plants i this tank, llva and one or two olher things, bnt the great attraction is the shrimps. There are hundreds of them, maybe thousands, and they are all the time darting about with charaeterlstie activ- ity. They are ure to remind the ob- server of acloud of gna,ts. They are not so numerous as gnats would be, and they are much larger; but there are many of them, and they look aa one could imagine a cloud of gnats would look if by some meazis a dozen of little gnats could be brought together tc form one big one, the bigger gnats thus formed continuing to twist and turn and gyrate just as the smaller ones had done. Of course the hrimps are fed just as any other animals would be; chopped i tp clams is their food. It iplaced in the water at the top. to sink slowly down. As it sinks it is seized upon by the myriad shimps. Each grabs a piece and da.rt away with it. The shrimps are semi-transparent; the solid meat of the clam is white, and it shows clear- ly against their bodies; and so at feed- ing time they look more curious than ever as they dart here and there, each now carrying a little white ball. In summer, when the shrimps are abundant and easy to procure, they are fed to el/ the fishes that like hem; In winter, when they are more difficult, to get, they become a sort, of delicacy on the aquarium's bill of fare and they are then fed oly to the fishes that most aed them.N.

CROPS IN THE SOUTH. Farmer Advised to Pitnt More Hempaod Less Cotton. The world's market are ovaraup- plied with cotton--not so with hemp, By modern processes hemp is made to take the place of flax, and is spun into fine threadn and fine linens. Linen manufacture is a negleoted industT in the United States. but offers equal profit with any other when once es- tablished. The importation of vegetable fibers into the United States are some 300,000 tons, all of whieh may be produced in the eotton states, when once a system- atio effort is made, The growing of hemp i8 a success in this country, as it is in Europe, and We import some 100,- 000 tons of fine hemp, which the south can and should produce. The only thing is the necessity of systematic at- tention to the work. California has started the business there, and experi- ment have been madein all the cot- ton states, showiag that the climate and soil are perfectly adapted toits growth. llemp is a native of southern China. and thrives best in a hot, marshy cli- mate. It has no enemies excepting the occasional drought, such as pre- vailed ia 1896. when tke crop in Missis- sippi was light. Lastyear it was J5 o 18 feet high, IIemp grew in Mississip- pi in 1893. 1894 and 1N95 to the height of 15 feet in 80 days, yielding 2,000 pounds of fiber per acre, worth $175 per ton and costing $15 per acre to grow it. The whole southern couutry is adapted to hemp ia proportion to the rainfall, It never fails from any other cause. It is planted from February to August and September, making a crop in 0 days in warm weather and in 90 days when planted in February. The cost of planting hemp upon the old cotton lands in 500 to 5,000 acres is as follows: Fertilizers per acre, $'.50; seed, P; plowing and sowing, $2.50; total, 7. :No further ettention is given to the crop until in full blossom, in 0 to 90 days, as it is sown broadcast The hemp is then cut with a combined reaper and mow- er, drawn by three mules, cutting 10 acres per day. When dry, in some two ,o four days, the hemp is stacked or put under covet" at a east for cutting and stacking per acre of 2.50. Tiisis double the cost ia Cali- fornia at present, where the growth of hemp is rapidly extending. There are tiree ways of rgtting the hemp straw ,to obtain thb lint or fiber. Fh'stSpreading it upon the ground to b rotted, as now done ia Ken- tueky, the time depending upou rain- tall. Uncertain, and crop poor. Second--Placing the hemp intanks, or pools, or st reams, for 8 to it days, and then drying it. Third--Turning the straw over to the middle n, or breakiuff out the fiber before rottiug or chemically treatiug Lk There is but little difference in the cost of the three processes, where once the apptiances are prepared. When rotted the hemp is broken by passingin through a breaker of fluted rollers and then baled aud shipped. In Kentucky the breaking is atill done by haud but nowhere else. The machinery to break hemp will cost $750 to $1.000 for eaoh 5o acres, and is run by the same engine as tie gin  about I0 horse-power each. The coat of growing hemp when aystematically done upon an exteasive scale is $12.50 to 15 per acre for eacherop. A crop of hemp and a crop ot peas may be grown in the northern parts and two crops of hemp further south. Peas once in two years are ample fertilizers. The ptadtofa hemp crop system- atically glkwn on good soill is "Z,00 to 2,800 pounds per aer wm'th 0 Per ton rotted and handled as done in Ken- tucky, $1 to $150 per tea as done in California, and $150 to $200 when chem- ically prepmd, or as skillfully dose in Italy and France. Russian hemp is worth 8100 to 8ti per ton. If two crops ae grown a year the first one will be cnt a couple of weeka sooner and gives a littlo Less fiber, but of finer quality, while thc second crop does not generally grow quite as tall, giving rather leas yield. The yield of one crop, ]5 to 18 feet high, would be 2,000 to 2,500, while two crops 14 to 15 feet and the second 1 to 14 feet, would be about 4.000 pounds, Thiu would give 80 to $12 per acre for on crop, made iu Kentucky style, and $160 for two, while water-rotted, aa in California and Italy, he single crop would be worth 1 to $175, and the two crops $250 to $800, If handled in a finer manner th( produc would be IK5 to $00 for one crop and. llaS0 to 400 for two crops, leaving a net profit under the poorest and most expensive handling o all of  per are per crop at guilds. Hemp is now grown in California and put upon the cars, baled for shipment, at$]5 toO per ton, while labor cos double and freight to the east four imes as much. This is not theoryl there is no guess- work in it, but auyone can prove it, step by step, until satisfied. Hemp has been grown suecetmfully in every southern etate, nor is there any likeli- hood of the market receiving au over- supply.

Those dropped in September and Oo tuber get a good start and will endure more outdoor eleritm, and they enjoy it on a fine sunny day for a short time. My experience ie that a calf raised in winter, well cared for, dces not stop growing when turned out to gratm iu .. the spring, while the spring calf, turned out to flght flica, or tied to the feace, usually grows smaller all the time. The food for fall or winter calveacn- etats of the mother'a milk diluted with the separator skim milk until the cal is two weeks ohl. when the mother's milk is gradually withdrawn, and warm separator milk, with a small amount of flaxseed jelly or linseed meal is added. Be careful not to give too much jelly or meal Increase the feed as tthe calf grows. One very es- sential point, where one does - not separate but once a day, is not to ge the skim milk too warm; better use a thermoseS': and get it as near normal as po, sible, Keep all feeding nd give a clean, dry pen; sprinkle in some land plaster. little salt occasionally, or better yet, . keep it near them at all times. Soma- times an old sod or a hand full of dry earth to lick will be relished, Calves dropped in the fall and bred to come in the fall are more sure to breed reg- ularly in the fall; at least that is my experience.

Must Not Ask 8omethtng for othln, The agriculturist must not ask land to give him crops year by y without rendering toit a return for bounty. If you want your soil to be ) liberal, you must make it "fat."
