The explanation of this para- dox invo!vcs two peculiarities, one, the power of this plant to appropriate the free nitrogen of the air; the oth- er, its great root power for ex- tracting insMuble, unavilable plant- food from the soil; and a third, pos- sessed in common with some other plants, its having deep, strong tap-root xhich enables it to forage through a deeper layer of earth, drawing not only on the surface soil,but the subsoil also. its power of appropriating the free WASHINGTON WIDOWS.

But the harm done by the mi- crobe on,he pea root is greatly more than COmlmsatcd by its supplying to the pea in available form nitrogen from the air which is ahvays present in cul- tivated soils. IIow it does this is not us yet known, but that it does is shown by taking soil and sterilizing it--that ix, subjecting it to heat, which will destroy all living organisms in it-- then plantin% peas in a portion of this sterilized soil, and mixinz with an- other portion of the sterilized soil some of the tub0rcles taken from roots of peas. and then planting peas also in thisinoculatal soil. The peas in the inoculated soil will develop luxu- rious growth and have tubercles Oi, ': heir z . :r. Those in t!e sterilized )i, dot inoculated Xll mMc very lttle growth and have no tubercles oa their roots. Such ex- periments have bee:, made again and again with too.st uniform results. The pea and the microbe thus lead a com- bined life, mutually beneficial to each other. The technical name for this combined life is "symbiosis"--a word of t;rcek derivation, which meaus coin- l)i acl life. As the supply of nitrozen in the air is practically inexhaustible, it can be seen how a crop of peas with the aid of these microbes can appropriate a part of the avmlabie nitrogen of the soil and yet return to the soil, in its roots and fallen leaves, as much or more ni- trogen than that taken by it from the air When a crop of peas is turned nnder it always restores more pelled to seed after Foi" spring,grain. many years I have observed that clover is not as sure to catch and does not do as well, even after  good catch, as when sown on winter grain For this reason I favor and practice the four- year rotation, letting a crop of winter gn'ain (rye, because it is better adapted for this locality) follow the spring grain. This enables us to sow our clover-seed at j us, the right time, either on a new-fallen snow or on the frozen ground a the opening of spring- I have never lost a seeding by doing so, although some of my neighbors object to this early seeding for fear the clover-seed might sprout and then be killed by late frost. Ac- cording to my experience their fear is without foundation. Clover- seed, or any other seed, does not sprout in one or two warm days; if requires steady, warm weather and warm soil, and when we have this the danger of being injured by frost is past We wan it to sprout and grow early; earlier than we could possibly get it on the ground, if we had to delay the sowing of it until after sowing our spring seed. When sown on the frozen ground it is more liable to get well covered; the ground is then full of little cracks and crevices in which the little tiny seeds are sure to find their way, and the i actioh of the sell by freezing and thaw. ing completes the reversing. Sown at this time the little clover-plants do not only get an early start, but their chance to get deeply rooted is very much in their favor, t conMder this the secret of successful clover-seeding; it can i'e. sis, the droughts, which we freque;ltly have the latter part of the spring, be- ter than when sown after spring grain. I)IVIDINO TIIE PROFITS. The four-year rotation gives us an. other advantage; it divides our work more evenly all through the season. All the work of the rye crop comes at a time when the farmer has nothing driving to do. The sowing is done when the oat crop is out of tbe way and the potato or corn crop not yet ripe enough to require our attention. 'l, lle harvesting also comes at a time when no other work is crowding, be- tween baying and oat harvest, liy di- viding our acreage in this way, setting part of it aside for the rye crop, we have a better chance to do our spring seeding and planting with the neces- sary care and thoroughness--G.

A Matter Too Apt to be Overlooked by the Farmer Is the Proper Rot,at|on of Ills Crolm. The tmportanee of a systematic crop cuLation ts greatly overlooked by many fw'mcrs !t'he writer can remember w hen not more tram 30 or 35 years ago, far'morn kept certain flchls for certain cr:]p, ye:u after ye'r, some fields Ir oats or barley, some for buckwheat or corn an([ others for meadows. This was not a scientific way of farming, and could not be expected tube profita- ble in the long run. But as the soil was then in its virgin state, even this misu:4: gave fairly good results It is w'rv different at the present day. The soil, ua a rule. is exhausted. Through n,'gtcct of properly fertilizing many field,s have become impoverished and no longer produce paying crops. The question is, how can we speedily im- Frove our land with the least expanse, ]2 ' " " a d at tae salne tiIUC receive some in- come from our worn-out farms? This can be accomplished by /ItOf{T I,OT&'rION. No amount of fertilizer, either cda- m,m table manure or any oltheartt- ticialnpounds of trade, can' keep lumRon(lition to podue the same erot an inctefinite lelfftl of time. The Prop wilt grow less vigorously, year after, year, until at last it fails entirely, altlough the land may be in I he ve best condition for other crops but ctlnge the crops, give the land something else to do. and it will re- .l,,)nd with renewo.d cnery. No two crops draw the same kind of plant-food from the soil. The rotation of crops tol4cther with deep, thorough tillage, will restore the land in a few years to ]ts former condition, caper,ally if clover forms one of the rotation. A t hree-year rotation, namely, clover. cor, or potatoes, and oats oz" bar- lc, will be moz'c effectual in bring- ing up land than in a lunge:" rota- tion.

It is a mistake to let manta e acemnu- iatc in the barnyard and lie there any great length of lisle.

The secretory of agriculture spent a week in looking over the tobacco lie!ds of Florida, and he expressed him- self as being astounded at the possibili. ties of toba(co culture. Cuban tobacco thrives on any well-drained sandy or loamy land with or without clay sub- soil. and ther are thousands upon thousands of acres of such land in ho south. The tobacco makes in a few months, does not require much cnitiva. tion and any cotton farmer can grow it. It rtuires some knowledge when top, cut and cure, but complete instrnc. tion in printe<t fo:m can be obtained from several sources, and the average farmer can very quickly learn how o cure it. Every section of the United States engaged in growing cigar tobacco is prosperous, money plentiful and the farmers happy, Fort Meade (Fla.) was a dead town two years ago, but the people took np to- bacco culture, and to-day it is one of the liveliest little towns in the state. A colony of 300 Cubans direct from the famous Vuelta Abajo district of Cuba have settled there and.are engaged i growing tobacco as they grow it in Cuba. Hundreds and hundredsof acres are planted to tobacco, and thousand of dollars have been invested in lands. Cigar factories will be established, and an era of prosperity is dawning that was never dreamed of under the orange.

The commerce of the lakes is enor- mous. The outlet from Lake Superior to Lake Huron had always been a serious obstacle to eon, meree, in that it was not deep enough to allow the larger freight and passenger boats to pass mmfortably through. Locks havebeen built at government expense, at the coast of ninny millions of dollars, which now allow the passage of large boats; and two more leeks are being built; and nd two more locks are being built-- 3ne by the Camulians, and one by the Americans which will still further in- crease cmnmerce. The new lock on the American side is larger than the old: and, when completed, will be one of the most wonderful pieces of. masonry tc be found in tbe country It will allo the passage of vessels drawing 21 feet of water. It has cost several millions of dollars, and Mll not be completed for a year or two For many years the great Suez cana was looked upon as the most wonderful piece of commercial engineering in the world, currying enormous cargoe through its gateway from the east But in this newer land tbe commerce ot the lakes has dwarfed the Suez canal The total tonnage of tbe Sou during th year 1897 wns 16,500,000. The tonnage ot the Suez canal in 1896 was 7,000,000. This tonnage of the Sou does not by an means represent the entire commerc( of the great hikes; it is only a portion o: it. Hundreds of tbousands of tons o merchnndise and supplies of all kind: are sh;pped annually up from Lak Michigan points through O,e Straits o Mackinac eastward, which ,do not pas: through the Sou; and many thousand., more go eastward from points belm the Sou on the oher lakes, to 1)e ex. changed for other supplies for point., also below the Sou.

From the great west there come, to the gateway of the See, whea and flour and hunber and iron ore--al the natural products from a vast arc of country, drawn to the lake rout{ because it is so much cheaper to mov goods by water than by rail. In re. turn, the east sends the west vas quantities of manufactured goods, and immense supplies of hard and soft coal The west furnishes raw materials; th east manufactures these materials an sends back the products of her fac. tortes and mills.

Esii- mates of the 1)opulation. which are all we have, ,lifter widely, but it was prob- ably not far from 30,000. A single city now has a larger population than all the colonies possessed in 1774. and there are in the United States m-day 104 cities and towns of over 30,000 in- habitants. Figures alone, however however, cannot express the differenc between those clays and our oxen. Now a town of 30000 people is reach,d by railroads and telegraphs. ]t is in close touch with all the rest of the world. Business brings strangers to it cnn- stant]y, who come like shadows and sc del)art, nnnotieed except by those witb whom they are immediately concerned. It was not so in 1774, not even in Phila- delphia, which was as nearly as possi- ble the central point of the colonies. as well as the most populous city. Thanks to the energy and genius of Franklin, Philadelphia was lmved, light. ed, and ordered in a way ahnost n- known in any other town of that period. It was well built and thriving. Business was active and the people were thrifty and prosperous, and lived well. Yet. despite all these good qualities, we musl make an effort of the imagination tc realize holy quietly and slowly life moved then in comparison to the pace of to.lay. There in Philadelphia was the center of the postal system of the continent, and the recently established mail coach called the "Flying machi n e." not in jest, bnt in praise, performed the journey to Nw York in the hitherte nnequaled time of two days Another mail at longer intervals crept more slowly to the south. Vessels of the coastwisc traffic, or from beyond the seas, came into port at uncertain times, and after long and still more uncertain voyages.

"Not that you are a lobster--" "Oh, let remain, 'You're a lobster,' said Mrs. Grumpus, cleerfutly. "Mariar, don't trifle. Lobster, now, is a tern, of reproach.

From the Gazette, Delaware, Ohio. The healthfulness of bicycle riding for women is still a disputed question between eminent physioians and health reformers. Used in nmderation it surely creates for women a means of out-door exercise, the benefit of which all physicians concede. Used to excess, like any other pastime, its effect is likely to be dangerous. The experience of Miss Bertha Reed, the seventeen-year-old daughter of Mr. J. R. Reed, 335 Lake St., Delaware, Ohio, may point a moral for parents who, like Mr. and Mrs. Reed, have experienced some concern for their daughters who are fond of wheel- ng. ]n the fall of '96 Miss Bertha who had mden a great deal, began to fail m an alarm- mg manner.
