VOL. LXXII. WOODVILLE, MISS., SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 1898. Cbe Bowsr Croubk$ What Caused Mr. Bowser to Oiv Up Flat Life With All Its Comforts. Copyright, z898. By M. QUA]). After three or four days Mr. Bowser red from the birthday party md the tumble downstairs, and even good-natured over tle trials and ribulations of fiat life. When half a had passed without a row with tiny one of the tenants he rubbed his together, and said: "One of the things that make fiat life sant is the adventures you meet There isn't any such thing as about it. Take it with the wakes, birthday parties, receptions, peddlers, the janitress, the children, the dogs, the gossiping and that, and one lives a week in a "But we'll get out of it as soon as we pleaded Mrs. Bowser. "We'll get out of it at the end of a ear, perhaps," he replied. "I've got things down pretty fine at last, and the next few months I hope to enjoy myself. Don't you notice how quiet the house is to-night. A month ago you eu|dn': hear yourself speak at this hour of the evening, bttt these people arc getting civilized at last. Take that anitress, for instance. For the first three or four weeks she seemed deter- mined to--" Some one knocked in an imperious way at the door, and Mr. Bowser was still eeholng when a chair was thrown over the banister. Then came a rug, more chairs, a stand and a pic- ture. Mr. Bowser was struck and knocked down and the musicians ceased their noise as they hustled down stairs before the bounding and clatter- ing missiles. "Who: in the name of thunder is itl" shouted Mr. Bowser, as he dragged himself up the stairs. "Everything on fire above!" replied Mrs. Bowser, as she ran to the win- dows. Mr. Bowser didn't lose his head. He simply grabbed up anything he could lift and carried it to the window and dumped it out. IIe had pretty well stripped the two front rooms when a man put his head into the door and shouted that the fire was out and that there was no more danger. A lamp had been upset in the room above and burned one end of a two-dollar rug. An alarm had been turned in and the house was full of firemen. IIalf a dozen came into the'Bowsers' rooms, and one of them looked about and asked: "Why, you haven't been fool enough to heave your stuff out of the window, have you ?" "Of course I've thrown it out!" in- dignantly replied Mr. Bowser. "And broken it all to fiinders and probably killed three or four people! Well, you are a daisy, you are!" "But what right, sir--what right had those people upstair to yell 'fire!' and" upset the whole house! Somebody has got to 1Say for this!" They advised him to go and sand- paper his head. and went off whistling, but it was halt an hour before the front door wan shut on them. MrS. t f L "GRABLtED UP ANYTHING HE COULD LIFT." p'7'ned it to find tale woman standing there. . "Now, then, Mr. Towser," she began, i .but he interrupted her witb : : "My name is Bowser, as I've told you a'hundt-ed times." "Well, then, Mr. Bowser. if you don't knaow enough to turn off the water in the bathtub you'd better hire a small boy to show you how'.

"Well, are you satisfied at last?" hc asked, as he caught sight of her. "But what have I done?" "Done!

"And who pat me in a position to be sassed by that cat of a janitress, and insulted by the people above and below, and chucked downstairs--aye! chucked downstairs by a lop-shouldered igno- ramus who don't know pancakes from cart-wheels!" "I begged you not to meddle with them, but you would do it." She leaned up against the wait and wept. He looked at her for half a min. ate in silence and then asked: "Have I got a hat and overcoat?" "Yes." FARMERAND PLANTER. COTTON PLANT DISEASES. The Boll Shedding of Cotton: Its Cause and Cure Presented by an Expert. Few diseases of cultivated crops cause such sudden and complete over- turning of bright prospects as the shed- ding of cotton bolls. A crop that starts well under favorable circumstances and gives a luxuriant growth of weed, blooming profusely and setting bolls abundantly, may iu a few weeks of dry July weather show a decrease from a promised "bale to the acre to a beg- garly one-fifth." At this season during a dry spell, or on light dry soil, it is no uncommon thing tQ ,cc a loss of three- fourths or more of the young bolls. Boll shedding, like red and yellow rusts of cotton, is a physiological dis- ease and due to much the same causes. namely a lack of moisture or plant food in the soil. Bat in this case the disease does act run exactly the same course aa in cases of the "'rust" dis- eases. ';Boll shedding" is apt to be worse on soils improperly prepared or on soils laoking in vegetable matter which have received a too heavy application of nitrogenous fertilizer. The trouble m especially severe whcn the nitrogen is given in the form of nitrate of soda. The reasons for this lie in the climate of the cotton belt and the character of the soil. ]n spring)ve usually have abundant rains, th@ soil is light and easily warmed by the sun's rays; growth is rapid. When we apply an easily soluable nitrogenous fertilizer like nitate of soda the plants are over- stimulated. They grow rankly with abundant large leave, and bloom pro- fusely. The planter calculates on "a bale to the acre--if the weather holds out." But the weather, as a rule, does not hold out. a drought sets in. The large and numerous leaves soon pamp the soil dry, and the young and tender bolls dry up and fall off. This is the whole story. A careful study of the subject for several years by the writer failed tb show any fungus associated with the trouble. It is truc that the same trou- ble sometimes occurs on soils just the opposite from dry and in seasons the reverse of droughty. Bat the disease is the same, though caused by opposite agen cies. In the latter ease the plant's roots. instead of its leaves, are affected, and it suffers from starvation just the same. But cotton is not often grown on very wet undrained lands, nor do we often have a drowning rainy spell in sum- mer. The remedy for boll shedding on dry upland soils is plenty of vegetable mat- ter in the soil, deep breaking and shal- low cultivation to conserve the moist- ure; the avoidance of too much easily soluble nitrogenous fertilizer and the liberal use of kainit, which by its well- known power of bmding loose soils and absorbing and holding moisture will prevent the too rapid drying out of the soil.---Gerald McCarthy,Botanist, N. C. Experiment Station. ABOUT TAMWORTH SWINE. Their Leading Chartcteristles Set Forth by Prof. Hayward, of the Penn- sylvania Dairy School. So much has been said recently by the agricultural press about Tamworth swine that a brief description of their leading characteristics would not be out of place at this time. Prof. H. Hayward. of the Pennsylvania dairy school, state college, give the follow- ing history and characteristics of the breed: To one accustomed to seeing chunky, broad-backed, fat hogs, the Tamworths are not particularly attractive. But it should be born in mind that the lean, deep, long sides of the best bacon are not to be found in animals with broad backs, dished faces, broad, full jowls and underlines that reach almost to the ground. The Ta,nworth breed of swine is sup- posed to have originated near Birming- ham, England, and seems to be the most direct descendant of the aborigi- part siF.e, vtr an4 prolificacy, and their off,sprlng produce more end bet. ter bacon. The Canadians have used the Tamworths largely in crt,ssing up- on the Berkshires and Chester Whites. and the result has been the produeti,n of a packer's hog, ideal not only in re- gard to raze and quality of meat. but also in regard to the economy with which this superior meat is produced. As yet no scale of points has bceu adopted by breeders, but in lieu of one Prof. Shaw lays down the following general outline: The frame is long and deep rather than broad, and is well sustained ly strong limbs. fiend is long but light rather than heavy, possessed of but moderate dish; having the appearance of leanness. Jowl light rathcr than heavy. Ear moderate in size, pointing for- ward and slightly rect. Body long in the coupling and deep, slightly but regularly arched above and straight below. Back is moderately wide. with a gradual rounding descent until the side is reached. Shoulder large but not rough and about equal m thickness to the ham. Side long, quite deep, and retaining its thickness down to the belly. Ribs well arched and deep. Fore and hind flanks full and heart girth and flank girth good and about equal. Ham, rounded off rather than square. Legs medium in length and standing firmly. Skin smooth and covered plentifully with hair. tIair not coarse and no bristles; color a red or bright chestnut , usually dark- ens with age. In prolificacy the Tamworths are unrivaled, and the young pigs possess the hardiness characteristic of the breed. Such is the history and such the characteristics of a breed little known in the United States but one which is doing a great work for the Canadian pork producer, and one which is bound to play an important part in the Amer- ican market, whiehie coming to de- mand less fat and more lean meat in its pork products. The Plow Team. In working farm teams, either for plowing, cultivation of the land or hauling heavy loads, there are at least two prime requisites demanded for in- suring satisfaction to the driver and the greatest amount of ease and com- fort to the horse, says the Indiana Farmer. First. they should be evenly matched as to size, speed and spirit; and, in the second place, the harness and whiffletrees must be so balanced and adjusted to the load that an even pull will bear equally upon the weight to be drawn. The average plowman is liable to overlook the im- portance of this equal adjustment sys- tem, and it is not uncommon to see the end of the doubletree to which the furrow horse is hitched, several inches, often a foot, lower than the other as the team pulls the plow along; this not only adds labor and friction, but it tbrows the running of the plow out of balance, making it harder for the plowman and impossible for the best class of work to be per'formed. The whiffletree, or as they are known to some, the double- trees, should be level when the pull is on and not cocked up at one end. atwist as is too often the case. It can be obviated by a proper adjustment of the harness and by using" the larger horse, if there is a difference in size, in the furrow; the lowering or raising of the traces at the breechings and back- band as the occasion require.s, will do ft.--Southern Cultivator. The Popular New Feetls. The use of corn meal for milch cows is being gradually supplanted by other products. Many farmers in the milk- producing districts, whose ration used to be theold one of half shorts and half corn meal, now substitute gluten and cottonseed-meal, claiming that in this way they get more milk, with less risk of injury to the cow. Quite a common ration is two parts of shorts to one part eacl of gluten and cottonseed. :luten meal and gin- at's what.
