A plan in use in Southern Australia
for leading cattle, said to be very
effective, is as follows: Tie the end of
}he rope aroun 1 the base of the near
horn; pass the line across the forehead,
back behind the horns and under the
back of the near ear, thence up
between the ropes and the animal's
forehead. "When hauled taut a hitch
is made which takes in the ear, the
least pressure upon which by pulling
the rope, it is said, prevents the most
obstinate beast from hanging back.
Plovrliijx (aifeu Crops.
By plowing in a green crop, the sur
face soil is enriched, not only by the
elements which the crop derived from
the air, but also by mineral and vege
table matters, which were brought up
by it from the sub-soil. The green
crop thus acts the part of a gatherer of
plant food, and makes it easier for any
crop soon after this green manuring to
get its supplies from the decomposing
vegetation in the soil. The best plants
adapted for green manuring are those
which derive their support principally
from the air, which grow rapidly,
which cover the ground well and
whose roots penetrate deep and ramify
extensively throughout the soil.
The Horse—ltiflnmntlon of the Rorvels.
In this disease, says the Western
Agriculturist , no time must be lost, but
the animal must be put to rest as soon
as possible, for unless you relieve him
enough to make him quiet in a very
short time, it will be impossible to save
his life. My great success in treating
this disease has been to give large
doses of opium and belladonna, Avith
linso(Hl or castor oil. Then I give in
jections of "ice water" until theboAvels
have been emptied as completely as
possible, then from ten to twenty
drops fluid extract of aconite every
hour until the horse commences froth
ing at the mouth, when the aconite
must be withheld and "quinine" given
for one or two doses, when the aconite
can be given again in the same sized
doses. As soon as the bowels have been
emptied as completely as possible with
out straining the injections must cease
and a suppository made Avith two
drachms of solid extract of opium in
serted in the rectum and allowed to
remain there and dissolve, and under
}dl circumstances the bowels must be
held in check after they are tirst
emptied, until the fever is broken up.
. have kept horses under treatment for
three deys at a time, without allowing
their boAvels to move. Mustard applied
to the sides and belly is thought by
sonic practitioners to be very useful,
let, 1 have never yet seen any direct
benefit derived from the use of mus
tard .in this disease. "Ice" I have
found to be a great benefit in this dis
ease. If it is broken into small pieces
a~d put into a bucket and set before
the animal he Aviil generally eat it
when he xvill refuse everything else,
and I have never yet seen any bad
results from the use of ice in this dis
ease, either from eating the ice or the
of ice-water for injections.

The fable relates that a camel asked

shelter, and when his request was
granted he l>egan to crowd his whole
body in at the door, and soon had
entire possession. .Salmi Morse is play

of the Passion Play with a full-dress
rehearsal in which ho keeps the most
prominent characters in the back
ground as much as possible, and he fol
lows the rehearsal with a private per
formance to-night to which the mayor
and other prominent people have been
invited. He hopes to secure a verdict
that the play is not objectionable, and
when once the camel gets possession
he will trample down all opposition,
with all the characters as it was
by peasants at Oberamniergau. A
newspaper reporter speaks of the re
hearsal the other evening as containing
nothing like blasphemy; buttheobluse

A Forgotten Promise
There is a young conductor on a
line of street cars in Cincinnati Avho is
the hero of a romantic episode. At the
time of the burning of the Brooklyn
theater, in which so many people were
burned to death, this young man Avasa
resident of Brooklyn. He attended the
theater on the night of the tire, and
sat beside a nuile companion in tlie
front roAv near the orchestra. As it
will be remembered, the fire was dis
covered during the latter part of the
first act of the "Two Orphans." At the
time the flames made their appearance
behind the scenes one of the company
billed as Nellie Dell, but whose real
name was Kittie Meyers, a young New
York girl, was doing a song and dance
act. The fire burst out all over the
stage with incredible rapidity, and the
young man saw that this girl was in
peril. "With a spring lie leaped across
the orchestra railing, clambered on the
stage and caught Miss Dell in his arms
and broke for the private box nearest
the street. After considerable difliculty
he succeeded in getting into the open
air with the girl clinging to his neck,
frightened almost to death. He had
saved her life, as most of tho.se who
were on the stage when he went to her
rescue perished in the flames. Thus
began an acquaintance which soon
ripened into love, and finally they were
married. The father of the girl, who
was a business man in New York
city, made the acquaintance of his
daughter's deliverer, and, pleased with
his appearance, said: "You have
saved my daughter's life, and you shall
have her for your wife." Nellie's heart
had been smitten by the good-looking
fellow (he was a poor tinner at that
time), and a union was soon effected.
The father said to him: "You shall
never want for anything." lie must
have soon forgotten his promise, for
now his heroic son-in-law is manipula
ting a bell-punch for $2 a day. Such
is life in a great city.
Sun and Moon.
In the German language, as is well
known, the genders of the sun and
and moon are respectively feminine
and m.osculine, contrary to the rule of
the romance languages, where, as in
Latin, the sun is masculine and the
moon feminine. In our own lan
guage Shakespeare "speaks of the
moon as "sheand in Egypt and
Peru the sun and moon were regarded
both as brother and sister, and as hus
band and wife. In Arabic, Mexican,
Xithuanian, Slavonic and Greenland
ish the moon and sun, according to
Grimm,are related as in Germany. The
variation of gender implies, of course,
a difference of thought, but the fun
damental conception that gave them
genders at all in language or legend is
clearly the same in either case, thai

Thf flindow Hanging sr New York City
mil the liuure Country—A Tribune
The uauon has been horrified at the horn
ing of a Milwaukee hotel, whereby over sev
enty lives were lost. This event carried ter
ror because it was sudi J e i and appalling; but
had the same disastrous results to life and
; limb come silently they would have been un
noticed, not only by the people of the land
but also by the very community in which
they occurred. Fatal events of a far worse
nature have taken place in this very city, but
they have attracted no attention, nor would
they now did not the Buroau of Vital Statis
tics bring them to our notice. '"Figures do
not lie," whatever else may be uncertain, and
the report on the deaths of this city is a start
ling comment on its life. During the past
year the enormous increase of certain mala
dies is simply appalling. While the total num
ber of deuiiis has diuunis! e I, ftid the death
rate on most diseases has decreased, still it is
far groat or in one or two more serious disor
ders than w; s ever kuown before. More peo
ple died in the ci'y of New York in I*B2
from Fright's disease of the kidneys, than
from diphtheria, smallpox and typhoid fever
all combined ! This scarcely seems possible,
but it is true, and when it is remembered that
less than one-third the actual deaths from
llright's disease are really reported as such,
the ravages of tho malauy can bo partially
'1 he immediate query which every reader
will make upon such a revelation of facts,
is: What causes this increase? This is a dif
ficult question to answer. The nature of tho
climate, the habits of life, the adulteration
of foods and liquors, all undoubtedly con
tribute; but no immediate cause can bo cer
tainly assigned. Often before tho victim
knows it the disease has begun. Its ap
proaches are so stealthy and its symptoms
so ohscuie that they cannot bo definitely
foreseen, and are only known by their ef
fects. Any kidn iy disorder, however slight,
is the first stage of Blight's diseaso. But it
is seldom that kidney disorders can be de
tected. They do not have any certain symp
toms. Mysterious weariness; an unusual
appetite; periodical headaches; occasional
nausea; uncertain pains; loss of vigor; lack
of nerve iiower; irregularity of the heart;
disordered daily habits; imjerfect digestion
—all these and many other symptoms are
the indications of kidney disorder, even
though there may he no pain in the region
of the kidneys or in that portion of the body.
The serious nature of these troubles may be
understood from tho fact that Bright's dis
easo is as certain to follow diseased kidneys
as decomposition follows death.
It is high time the Doctors in this land
who have been unable to control kidney
troubles, should be aroused and compelled
to find some remedy, or acknowledge one
alien ly found. The suffering i üblic needs
help Vid cannot await the taray action of
any hair-splitting cotleof incorrect y formu
lated theories. If the medical world has no
certain remedy for this terrible diseru-e let
them acknow ledge it and seek for one outside
the pale of their profession. For the discov
ery of this remedy and for its application to
this dee ise, tho people of this city, the peo
ple of the whole land, not only those who are
suffering, but those who have friends in dan
ger, are earnestly and longingly looking.
Tho above quotation from the New York
Tribune is causing considerable commotion,
as it seems to lift tho cover from a subject
that has b<o>uio of national importance.
The alarming increase of kidney diseases;
their insidious beginnings and frightfuj
endings, and tho acknowledged inability of
physicians to successfully cope with them,
may well awaken the greatest dread of every
one who has the slightest symptoms.
It is fortunate, howtvjr, that the
surest relief is often found where,
possibly, lea-t expected, and that there is a
specific for the evils above described we have
come to fully le'iove. Within the past two
years we have frequently seen statements of
parties claiming to have been cured of seri
ous kidney troubles even after hope had been
r.l audoned: but in common with most peo
ple we have discredited them. Quite recently,
however, a number of prominent and well
known men have come out voluntarily and
stated over their signatures that they were
completely cured by tlie use of Warner's Safe
Kidney and Liver Cure. Most people have
been aware that this medicine has an unusual
standing and one entitling it to be classed
above proprietary articles generally; buiuiat
it had accomplished so much in checking
the rnvageß of kidney disease is not so gen
erally known. Its great worth has been
shown not only by the cures it has effected,
but also because n number of base imitations
have appeared in the market, fraudulently
claiming the valuable qualities of the orig
iual Safe Cure- If it were not valuable it
would not be imitated.
The above may seem like an ultra indorse
ment of a popular remedy, but it is not one
whit stronger than the facts admit. What
ever assists the world toward health and con
sequent happiness, should reoeive the hearty
indorsement of the press'and all friends of
humanity. It is on precisely this principle
that the foregoing statement is made, and it
merits the careful consideration of every
