If you've loaned a friend a "fiver,"

Trout Traveling Over Dry Land.

over dry land to get to their spawn-

based on facts. as he and several of
his workmen a few days ago saw a
trout come up stream to where it was
filled with leaves. The trout rested
a moment or two, then started over-
land some three or four feet to open
water. One of the mnen remarked
that all that was needed for the trout
to reach the hatchery was to have a
road swumped for them.

The sending ot food supplies from
the sonth to the impoverished farm-
ers of the northwest is a proper and
commendable act, but it should be
supplemented by measures more last-
ing in effect. In dispensing charity
it is not enough that the immediate
wants of the needy be supplied. Some
means of self-help should be provid-
ed, so that the present object of char-
Ity might be enabled to lift himself
above the need of charity. In the
case of the Nebraska and Dakota
suffers the pressing and predomi-
nant need is for food and fuel, but,
something beyond this temporary re-
lief is'i.-uperative. Here are thous-

enterprising and adventurous than
their fellows, they have gone out to,

test with the hard conditions of life
found there they have exhausted

CHA ER XVL
At 10 o'clock that morning, shortly
after a smiling' interview with the lV-t
dies of Fort Siley, in which, with ln-
finite spirit anrd the most perfec-self
control, Miss Beaubien had informed
them that she had promised to lead with
Mr. Jerrold, and since he was in duress
she would lead with no one, and sent
them off wondering and greatly excited,
there oame running up to the carriage
a telegraph messenger boy, who handed
her a dispatch.
"I was going up to the avenue,
mum," he explained, "but I seen you
Nina's face paled as she tore it open
and read the curt lines:
"Come to me here. Yourhelpneeded
She sprang from the carriage. "Tell
mother I have gone over to see some
fort friends-not to wait," she called to
the coachman, well knowing he would
understand that she meant the ladies
with whom she had been so recently
talking. Like a frightened deer she sped
around the corner, hailed the driver of
a cab, lounging with his fellows along
the walk, ordered him to drive with all
speed to Summit avenue, and with beat-
ing heart decided on her plan. Her glo-
rious eyes were flashing; the native
courage and fierce determination of her
race were working in her woman's
heart. She well knew that imminent
danger threatened him. She had dared
everything for love of his mere presence,
his sweet caress. What would she not
dare to save him if save she could? He
had not been true to her. She knew,
and knew well, that, whether sought or
not, Alice Renwick had been winning
him from her, that he was wavering,
that he had been cold and negligent,
but with all her soul and strength she
loved him and believed him grand and
brave and fine as he was beautiful
Now-now was her opportunity. He
needed her. His commission, his honor,
depended on her. He had inti'nated as
much the night before-had told her
of the accusations and suspicions that
attached to him-but made no mention
of the photograph.
He had said that, though nothing
could drag from him a word that would

for the very depths of her nature were
all athrob with love for him. And now
he could no longer plead that poverty
withheld his offer of his hand. She
would soon be mistress of her own lit-
tle fortune, and at her mother's death
of an independence. Go to him she
wou4d, and on wings of the wind, and
go she did. The cab re--..ased her at the
gate to her 1h-,:'i,- i w-.:-t back with a
double farn tl..- r-et th.. -Iriver to think-

winding flight of stairs to ti-l I.-.'-.-I l.e-
low, and her fairy feet woi;t tr:i.;iiig
over the pavement of a plebCian street.
A quick turn, and she was at a little
second rate stable, whose proprietor
knew her and started from his chair.
"What's wrong today, Miss Nina?"
"I want the roan mare and light buggy
again-quick as you can. Your own
price at the old terms, Mr. Graves-si-
He nodded, called to a subordinate
and in five minutes handed her into the
frail vehicle. An impatient chirrup and
flap'of the reins, and the roan shot
forth into the dusty road, leaving old
Graves shaking his head at the door.
"I've known her ever since she was
weaned," he muttered, "and she's a
wild bird, if ever there was one, but
she's never been the like o' this till last
And the roan mare was covered with
foam and sweat when Nina Beaubien
'drove into the bustling fort, barely an
hour after her receipt of Jerrold's tele-
gram. A few officers were gathered in
front of headquarters, and there were
curious looks from face to face as she l
was recognized. Mr. Rollins was on
the walk, giving some instructions to a
sergeant of his company, and never saw
her until the buggy reined up close be- (
hind him, and turning suddenly he met
her face to face as she sprang lightly
to the ground. The young fellow red- f
dened to his eyes and would have re- c
coiled, but she was mistress of the situ-
ation. She well knew she had but to v
command, and he would obey, or, at the r
most, if she could no longer command
phe had only to implore, and he would
be powerless to withstand her entreaty. t
"I am glad you are here, Mr. Rol- b
lines. You can help me---srgednt, will
you kindly bitch my horse a.fthat post?
," she added inflow, hurried
"come Vwith ne to r. Jerrold's."
Rulliais iLs 0;-s too o iptr? 1w= '-Er.
Silently he placed himse~ r- i.,.
and together t.hey passed the group at c
the office. Miss Beaubiea nodded with
something of her old archness and co-
quetry to the cap raising party, but
dzver hesitated. Together they passed i
along the narrow board walk, followed t
by curious eyes, and as they reached the
angle and stepped beneath the shelter
of the piazza in front of the long, low, c
green blinded bachelors' row there was
sudden sensation in .the group. Mr.
Jerrold appeared at the door of his quar
ters; Rollins halted some 50 feet away, t
raised his cap and left her, and all alone,
with the eyes of Fort Sibley upon her,
Nina Beaubien stepped bravely forward i
to meet her 1ver.
They saw'him greet her at the'door.
Some of them turned away, unwilling c
to look and yet unwilling to go and not t
understand this new phase of the mys- Z
tery. Rollins, looking neither to right
nor left, repassed them and walked off s
with a set, savage look on his young b
face, and then, as one or two still gazed,
fascinated by this strange and daring
proceeding, others, too, turned back
and, half ashamed of themselves for
such a yielding to curiosity, glanced
furtively over at Jerrold's door.
There they stood-he restrained by f
his arrest, unable to come forth; she, r
restrained more by his barring form
than by any consideration of maidenly
reserve, for, had he bidden, she would f
have gone within. She-had fully made
up her mind that wherever he was, even
were it behind the sentinels and bars of c
the guardhouse, she would demand that
she be taken to his side. He had handed
out a chair, but she would not sit.
They saw her looking up into his face i
as he talked and noted the eager gesti-
oulation, so characteristic of his creole
blood, that seemed to accompany his '
rapid words. They saw her bending to-
ward him, looking eagerly up in his f
eyes and occasionally casting indignant t
glances over toward the group at the
office, as though she would annihilate
with her wrath the persecutors of her
hero. Then they saw her stretch forth
both her hands, with a quick impulsive
movement, and grasp his one instant, o

There she stood in the doorway,' and all
tongues were hushed on the instaut.
Chester rose and stepped forward, with
anxious courtesy. She did not choose to
see the extended hand.
"It is you, alone, I wish to see, cap-
tain. Is it impcssi!let'ere?"
"I fear it is, Miss- Beaubien, but we

dear young lady, but if I had I could
not more thoroughly feel for--you than
I do. How can I help you?"
The reply was unexpectedly spirited.
He had thought to encourage and sus-
tain her, be sympathetic and paternal
but, as he afterward ruefully admitted,
he "never did seem to get the hang of a
woman's temperament." Apparently
sympathy was not the thing she needed.
"It is late in the day to ask such a
question, Captain Chester. You have
done great wrong and injustice. The
question is now, Will you.undo it?".
He was too surprised to speak for a
moment. When his tongue was un.
loosed, he said:

Work on an Ostrich Farm.
The ostrich farms of South Africa
are very curious and interesting
places. The equipment are general-
y very simple and inexpensive and

Then she turned, and with quick, eager
steps came tripping toward them. They
stood irresolute. Every man felt that it
was somebody's duty to step forward,
meet her and be her escort through the
party, but no one advanced. There was,
if anything, a tendency to sidle toward
the office door, as though to leave the
sidewalk unimpeded. But she never
sought to pass them by. With flashing
eyes and crimson cheeks, she bore
straight upon them, and with indignant

Tried and Discharged.
Something quite unusual in tihe
experience of the quiet town of St.
St. Andrews, made food for coim-
ment and conjecture last week.
The circumstances are '.'nt on
Sunday evening the 20th inst.,
while Rev. M. J; Webb, was con-
ducting service in the Methodist
chtirch, more noise than was seemginly
appropriate, was made by some boys
on the outside. This led to the ar-
rest, on Thursday morning last
of Otho Kester, John Sowles
and Geo. Rotzien, lads of 14
to 16 years of age. They were ar-
raigned before Justice Crippen and
tried before a jury of six, consisting
of John Lutz, Chas. L. Armstrong,
John Swindel, Samuel Surber, J. D.
Davis, L. E. Danford.
The case was given to tile jury
about noon, and in less than half an
hour a verdict of no cause of action
was returned. It seems there was
no doubt about the disturbance nor
that some of the parties arrested were
causing it; bu: the evidence was
weak an not positive as to either
one of tihe prisoners. hence they
could not do otherwise than acquit.

The Spanish bark La Fortunada was
towed down to the bar by the steam tug
. Kate Spencer, of Jacksonville. The La
Fortunada was drawing sixteen feet,

is loaaed with lumber from Bucki's

A home-seekers' excursion of about
one hundred Ohio people, under the
pilotage of M. S. Benn, of Dayton, O.,
reached Pensacola on the 10th. They
were given an excursion on the bay on
the commodious steamer Florida. The
forts and other points of interest,includ-
ing the cruiser Montgomery, were vis-
lted. The excursionists left for Jack-
sonville yr. Benn brought an excursion
here in January 1893, and several of the
party bought homes and located.
There was a general row at the meet-

were used, and tables and chairs were
thrown in aH directions. The general
.police alarm, was sent out, and the
-police soon had the ringleaders under
Postmaster Geo. F. Hubert's bonds.
S men have been circulating a petition for
subscriptions to assist them in making
up Hubert's shortage in the "funds, of
38,T00. The office at Punta Gorda, has
been tuaned over to the bondsmen with.
one of them in charge. With the help
which one of Hubert's brothers offers to
give, the revenues of the office above
running expenses will repay the bonds-
S- men in three years. But post-offlce in.

be taken. '
SMr. F. M..chenck is still at Bowling

S and grape fruit. The trees that were
injured by the cold are shedding their
leaves and will soon begin to put out new
sprouts and leaves, and the truck farm-
er, of' this section who lost some of their
S vegetable crops are busy replanting to-
matoes, beansgg plants, etc. It. will
not be long before they have another
crop ready for .Zhe consumer, as the
Ground is all in, good condition. The
general opinion' is that the, bearing or'
ange trees are not hurt and the young
trees but slightly, and that the average
crop of 1895 and 1896 in this section will
S be larger than ever.
The Court-house contest case, where
certain parties have been contesting
Westville's legal rights the county
seat, has been decided by Judge Barnes
in favor of Westville. This settles the
Question, and Westvile will be the
county seat of Holmes county for the
next ten years. This insures Westville's
future. It will soon be theleading town
in West Florida. The-new academy has
been completed, so that Professor Wood-

was drilling a well at whit ltT ow ~
old Fort Tabor, for Engineer T:sh, at a
depth of forty-one feet he struck an air
current of tremendous velocity, which
was forced through the pipe. Just pre-
yious to striking the cavity, Mr. Wood
was drilling through rock. He used a
force pump to supply the drill with
water, and as be struck the cavity his
drill dropped four feet, the water gave
out, and-Mr. Wood was confident that
he had struck a subterranean passage
where water was present. After wait-
ing for some time for water to make its
appearance at the top of the pipe, Mr.
Wood placed his hand on the drill bar
for the purpose of sounding, and was as-
tounded at the great force of escaping
air. An empty bottle was held near the
top and immediately over the pipe, and
caused a sound resembling that made by
the whistle of a locomotive. The force
ot escaping gas is constantly increasing,
and small stones placed on the top of the
pipe are thrown high into the air. The
depch of the subterranean passage is
'about four feet, beneath which is solid
rock. The length and breadth of the
cay ty is of course unknown. The
scene of this discovery is only one-half
mile distant from where recently oo-
cured the great cave-in of the earth on
the Florida Southern railroad.
Some time ago a smooth-talking, gen-
teel-looking young man arrived in Punta
Gorda and registered at the Hotel .Dade
as Mr. Nash, of Boston. Hewas polite
and social, talked freely and soon won
favor with a number of prominent young
men who readily introduced him in
Punta Gorda society. By his gentle-
manly appearance and pleasant manners

Shall the Children Dance ?
Much has been written and more said on
the subjectof children dancing. Every one
has an opinion on the subject, some of said
opinions being most decided. It is very
seldom children in the country think of
such a thing as dancing. Bat why should
they not ? Thereis nothing that so quickly
makes the child graceful and self-possessed.
The shy, awkward manner disappears, and
the child falls naturally in the habit of be-
ing agreeable and polite to strangers. The
pity-bred child is as much at home among
strangers as in its mother's parlor. Dancing
is considered a part of its education. When
it starts to day school, it also begins to at-
tend itaSaturday dancing school. The brain
is not developed to the neglect of the body.
Both are given an equal chance. If the
country parents think it does not improve
the child, they have only to compare the.
appearance of their own sons and daughters
with their city cousins.
If the mothers exercised a little executive
ability they could perhaps manage to have
their children taught dancing. There surely
would be some one in every neighborhood
who could dance and who would be willing
to act as teacher. Arrange to meet atsome
house where there are a piano or organ and
a roomy floor. A grown up daughter would
gladly volunteer to play. .The class should

another way: It will make home brighter

From the Florida Agriculturist.
Having become much interested in
the description of this comparatively
new flowering shrub and the conspicu-
ous engraving claimed to represent it,
in a descriptive floral catalogue some
years ago, I at once ordered a specimen
of it from one of our leading nurseries;
but in this, my first, experiment in its
culture I was doomed todisappointment
The specimen' sent me came to hand
late in the spring, with the roots badly
cut back in taking it up, and it haviiig
likewise fallen a prey to the red
spider that seemed fully bent on ex-
tracting all the remaining sap that it
possessed during the growing season, by
the later part of autumn it was pretty
well dried up, and by the next spring
was thoroughly dead. With- this un-
successful experience in its cultivation
I came to the conclusion that it might
be poorly adapted to this locality, and
remained of that opinion for two or three
Finally, I concluded to give it another
trial, and this time I obtained a tiny
sized one through the mail, with roots
and top entire. This I carefully set out
in a rich, loamy soil, and have been
greatly pleased with its upright growth,
symmetrical form, and the delicate and
refreshing appearance of its oblong,
bluish green leaves. In the fore part ot
May of last season it displayed its first

lower end oflthe scion into a
hauld. begin a little below on
each sido of the lower bud. The wood
should be cut so that the edge opposite
the bud-shall be thinner than the part
under it. These scions maybe prepared
in this manner before taking them to
the field, but care must be taken that
the cut surfaces do not become dry.
This may be prevented by packing them
in some clean material as moss or moist-
ened cloth. When all is ready for the
insertion, the wedge which projects at
theend of the grafting knife is driven
into the central portion of the cleft
until the space is large enough to receive
the scions. These are then carefully in-
serted, not in a direction parallel to the
'central axis of the stub, but at a slight
angle with it, allowing the tops of the
scions to lean a trifle away from the stub'
and from each other. The reason for
this inclination is to make sure that the
cambium:layers of scion and stock cross
at one'point at least. The greater the
angle of the scion the shorter will be this
place of contact; therefore, care must be
taken that the scions diverge but
slightly, When both scions are in posi-
tion the lower, bud is thicker than the
part opposite to it, the pressure is
greater at the outer side of .the scion.
This is where it is wanted, for the cam-
bium layers are brought ibto very close
contact, and if the work has been well
done success is practically assured. In
case of large stubs, the pressure in the
cleft may be severe enough to injure the
graft. When the scion is being squeezed
so that its form is altered it is well to
insert a wooden wedge in.te cleft to re-
lieve this excessive pressure. -
All that.now remains to be done is to
fill thecavity about the stub with earth,
and the scion should also be buried so
that only about an inch, or the part
above the upper bud remains uncovered.
The soil should be firmed slightly to
prevent it from drying out, and the op-
eration is finished. Wax is sometimes
used to cover the cut surfaces of both
scion and stock, but I have never been
able to see that any advantage was ob-
tained from its use that the earth did
not grant equally well. Some have gone
so far as to say 'its use is positively in-
jurious, so when the grafts are placed
below the surface ot the soil the use of
wax is not recommended.
The growth made the first season by
such grafts is frequently very large, and
enough wood is formed and a sufficiently
strong union made to support nearly a
full crop of grapes the next year. If the
operation is well done, therefore, only
one season is entirely lost and but a
small part of the crop of the second.

J. T. C.
We find in a recent bulletin of the
Cornell -Agricultural Experiment Station
the following article on grape grafting,
which will doubtless give the inform
tion desired by our subscriber. The
Cleft Graft-This form of graft is
generally made by sawing off the vine
from three to six inches below .the sur-
face of the soil, leaving a stub into
which one or two scions maybe inserted.
The saw used should be sharp so that it
will work easily and not lacerate the
edges bf the stub. When much grafting
is to be done it might be a matter of
economy to have a saw.made especially
adapted to the purpose. The handle
should be on a higher plane than the
blade; this allows the free use of the
hinds above the ground while the blade
Is below, near the bottom of the excava-
tion made about the stem of the vine. If
a common straight saw is used the stock'
must be out off at an angle or the hole
be made larger, neither result being ex-
actly what is desired. The blade need.
not be more than six or eight inches
long, and only wide enough to give it
firmness. The handle, which can be of
any convenient pattern, but large enough
to be grasped by both hands, should be
attached to a solid bent shank having
the part which lowers the block into the
excavation from three to four inches in
When the stock has been sawed, it is
a good plan to smooth the top of the
stub, at the places in which the scions
are to stand, with a sharp knife in order
to dress !hose portions of the sawed sur-
face and to show more distinctly the
line dividing the bark from the wood.
The next step is to split the stub, leav-
ing the smooth parts above mentioned at
the tob of the cleft. This splitting of
stub is not such an easy matter as it
first appears. A large chisel might be
used in splitting the stub. 'The cutting
edges should be sharp to prevent unne-
cessary tearing of the cells. The grain
of grape wood is by no means very
straight, and some varieties seem to
have a peculiarly twisted wood. In
such cases a keen edge upon the tool is
of great value. It has been recom-
mended to use a fine saw for making a
cleft to receive the scions; in many
cases this advice is well worth following,
for it is practically impossible in some
instances to split a stub in such a man-
ner that a s'ion will have much chance
When the stub has been sawed or split
stock, and then another cut is made, be-
ginning from one to three inches above
thr horizontal cut- and sawing Inwards
and downwards so that a wedge shaped
piece is removed from one side of the
te'm. The length of the downward cut
should be about one and a half times as
long as the horizontal out in order to al-
low the cleft to be made more easily.
The manner of inserting the scions is
ld-ntical with that already described.
The ad% antage of this form of graft Is
that if the scions die the original vine
is not lost, but will continue to bear.
Theyield may be small, yet some crop
is harvested whether the scions die or
live. In the latter case the old vine is
pinched back so as to throw more sap
Into the grafts. The second year the old
vine is reduced still more and at the end
of the year maybe cut away entirely,
thus allowing the scions to take its
place. In this manner but a compara-
tively small loss in yield is sustained.
Crown Graft by Inlaying-The stock
is cut as for cleft grafting. In place of
splitting the stub two V-shaped grooves
are made on opposite sides of it. These
grooves are' made by means of an in-
strument especially designed for the
purpose. The tip cuts out the trian-
gular part. In the blade itself is a part
which is bent at the'same angles as the
parts forming the tip. This indented
portion of the blade is used for cutting
away the endlof the scion, and with very
little practice an almost perfect fit of
the two parts can be made. The two
scions are then placed upon the stock
and are firmly 'tied there. The tying
material should be of such a nature that
it will decay before there is any danger
of strangling the scions. Raphia does
very well, as does also bast. I have also
used No. 18 knitting cotton, soaked in
boiling grafting ax, with entire satis-
faction, The ligatures should be made
as tight as possible.
Although this method of grafting is
not so commonly used as others it still
possesses some decided advantages. It
is a much simpler and more satisfactory
method than left grafting in very curly
wood. The tying is a slow process, and
for straight grained wood the cleft graft
is to be preferred. It is also open to the
objection of requiring the shoots to be
staked or tied to some support, for the
wind is ipt to break the point of unidh
more easily than with 'other methods,
A good union admits of a very strong
growth, and if the above precautions are
kept in mind the vines will equal those
produced by either of the preceding
Notes on Tree Planting
If a new orchard is to be planted, lay
off the land in a part set square. To do
so draw a line through the middle each
way, that is, from east to west, and then
intersect this line by another drawn
from north to south. Now draw lines
on all sides the same distance apart at
each end. This being done you can
measure off either quarter by itself.
After the stakes are located for the
trees, I would use a planting board, so
that the tree stake can be removed and
the hole dug in the proper place. Go
over the ground again and set two
-ti u outside' stakes for the
use of the planting'-boar&t *k., 'nk
by. The use of the board to plant
by is much better than so muh sight-
ing, as is usually needed without it; all
you haye to do is to go ahead putting
the tree in the notch of the bo; rd and
when done the trees all line every way
I would plant the different kinds, as
pear, peach, plum, etc., each by itself as
each needs special culture. Plant all the
different kinds of trees the same distance
apart and let that distance be not less
than thirty feet. Low-spreadiig tops are
best for fruit capacity'ild health, con-
venience in picking, etc.
The holes for the trees should be twice
as large and deep as the extended roots
of the trees to be planted, so as to have
room to spread the roots, and to put the
best surface soil under and around them.
Look over each tree before planting,
clippers in hand, and out off all side
limbs, If a small tree, making it nearly
clean stock, about three feet long, root
and all. Look over the root also, cutting
off all mangled roots, and shorten in to
about fifteen or twenty inches long; then

Read the following opinion of one of the moat prominent
American dealers who has sold hundreds ofthese wheels:
RICHMOND, VA., Oct. 1894.
Indiana Bicycle Company, Indianapolis, Ina:
GENTLEMBa -The Waverley Scorcher and Belle came to
hand yesterday. We are afraid you have sent us the high
priced wheel by mistake. You can't mean to tell us this
wheel retails for $86? We must say that it is, without excep-
tion, the prettiest wheel we have ever seen, and, moreover
we have faith in it, although it weighs only 22 lbs., for of a
Waverleys we have sold this year and last (and you know
that is a right good number), we have never had a single
frame nor forkbroken, either from accident N defect, and
that is more than we can say of any other :l, however
high grade, so called, that we sell. We c%, Culate our-
selves every day that we are the Waverley ageNt.
Yours truly, WALTEs C. Mna~BL & Co.

Horicitural a n INmrovment
ORGANT7ER JANUARY. 9, 1892.
The object of this Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to S'
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
To accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance thi
value of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out,in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every such tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
AS TO RELIABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATION.
The fiStt question which will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso.
elation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Associatior
make iinprovementa may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost o:

.association will n< i improve and plant, but watch and care for
erty entrusted to its .gtr trding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
.. r.. .ages from any cause p. .d to be prevented.
F romt a careful estimate ,a the probable expense and income of a fruil
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a fe, figures are given:
Price of ;ina per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; -ost of planting Ist
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20
1It is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit, and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, thongh perhaps a little

walnuts, Japain chestnuts, pecans, and many other varieties of fruits and nuts. whici

sidered certain yieldlarge returns oftener than they miss.-
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
swering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.

Equal with the interest of those having claims against the government is
that of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit of valuable inventions because
of the incompetency or_ inattention of the attorneys employed to obtain their
patents. Too much care cannot be exercised in employing competent and reli-
able solicitors to procure patents, for the value-af a patent depends greatly, if
not entirely, upon the care and skill of the attorney.
SWith the view of protecting inventors from worthless or careless attorneys,
and of seeing that inventions are well protected by valid patents, we have
retained counsel expert in patent practice, and therefore are preparedto. --

The great want in Florida of an
abundant supply of grasses, for fodder
quickly beconies apparent to every
new comer. Especially is this so in
our lake region where thle higl, roll-
ing sandy lands do not seem adapted
for medow and pasture purposes.
Para, Guinea, Bermuda, St. Augus-
tine, Crab and other grasses in some
measure help us out, but if the sta-
tistics of the hay demand and supply
could be gathered, we would be
startled at the amount of money sent
out of the state for it.
Ot late, experiments are being
made in some sections with Allalfa,
that valuable clover which has proven
such a blessing to the west. We
have seen no mention, as yet, "of its
successful culture il the sand hill

Recently a new fodder plant has
been introduced into the country

as prolific as Alfalfa is in the west.
It comes originally from Russi-',
where it was found by the explorer
Maximowics, growing in the isle of
Saghalin. In 1809 it was introduced
into France by Edward Andro, editor
of the Revue Horticole. We do not
know just when it found its way to
our country, though probably through

Nurserymen quote grass rootlets of
various kinds at about $3 per 1,000.
The plants are to be in the market

are advised that seednen and nurs-
erymen have agreed to make the re-
tail piice 25 cts. each, three for 60
cts., six for $1. These will be well

The editor of the Florida Ruralist
appears to doubt the utility of the
plant as a forage producer in Floiida.
In the current issue of that paper we
find the following.
This new plant will be sprung on
the public in every sensational seed

ulous claims have been made tor it
by the introduces and claims that
will not be borne out by experience.
One of its sponsors claims a green
forage production annually of 90 to
180 tons This claim alone should
cause all sensible people to let it
alone. Experiments have been made
with it in Florida this past year, but
with unsatisfactory results. We

our readers to waste no money in

the apocalypse of th(. past life, even
in its minute details, and the abs nee
of any unpleasant sensation. On the
whole, the popular idea (which in
such matters is never wholly wrong)
that drowning is a pleasant form of
death is confirmed by the testimony
of the few who have practically

ed county and yet returned to tell

Shall the Children Dance?
Much has been written and more
said on tLe subject of children danc-
ing. Everyone has an opinion on the
subject, some ot said opinions being
most decided. It is very seldom
children in the country think of such
a thing as dancing. .But why should
they not? The.e is nothing that so
quickly makes the child graceul and
self-possessed. The shy, awKward
manner disappears, and the child falls
naturally in the habit of being agree-
able and polite to strangers. The
city-bred child is as much at home
among strangers as in its mother's
parlor. Dancing is considered a part
of its education. When it starts to
day school it also begins to attend its
Saturday dancing school. 'The brain
is not developed to the neglect of the
body. Both are given an equal
chance. If the country parents think
it does not improve the child, they
have only to compare the appearance
of their own sons and daughters with
their city cousins.
If the mothers exercised a little ex-
ecutive ability they could perhaps
manage to have their children taught
dancing. There surely would be
some one in every neighborhood who
could dance and who would be wi,-
ling to act as teacher. Arrange to
meet at some house where there are
a piano or organ and a roomy floor.
A grown-up daughter would gladly
volunteer to play. The class should
always be held on Saturday after-
noon, so as not to interfere with the
school duties. Insist uponl perfect
decorum tiring the class hours.
If the tnotlhers try this plan they
will soon see a marked im prve:neit
in their chililren. And it will beige-
fit them i'l another wav: It will
make home brighter andl Ihappier for
them. Life on a farm does not af-
ford a gieat deal of diversion, and
thel spare iiours in winter can not be
passed ii a pleasanter amusement.
