Beet Fertilizing Clover.
A very Interesting experiment is
given by Prof. W. J. Beal, in his re
port of the Michigan state farm. Two
finebnnches of clover, apparently alike
in thrift and size, were covered with
mosquito netting. When the plants
were in blossom bumble bees were in
troduced under the netting and set to
work, the other being left unvisited.
July 31 ripe heads were selected from
each plant and the seeds carefully
counted. The fifty heads of the plant
from which the bees were excluded
yielded twenty-five seeds, forty yield
ing none at all. The fifty heads vis
ited by bees, on which they were seen
to work, yielded ninety-four seeds,
twenty-five yielding none at all.
The Curcullo.
A horticulturist writes the Massa
chusetts Ploughman that air slacked
lime will destroy the curculio. He
says : "Attach to a long pole that will
reach the top of the tree a fine sieve,
or a large sized cornpopper will an
swer, fill with the lime, and commence
using when the blossoms fall, and con
tinue using at intervals of ten days;
about six applications will be enough.
A half dozen plum trees have been
served with this remedy for the past
five years, and the result has been full
crops and no stings. Apply the lime
when the dew is on the trees."
Valne of Hrn Manure
We saw on the premises of a first
class farmer, some time ago, a well
constructed henhouse, though not at
n'.l complying with the conditions
which hen fanciers would impose. It
was designed only for laying and
roosting in; and it at first seemed
strange to find, at midday, with a cooj
atmosphere, turkeys and chickens oc
cupying it. They had free egress and
ingress and were not fed or watered
in ft; yet the chickens always went
there to lay. The secret was revealed,
however, when the proprietor informed
ns that he had it cleaned out every
week. All the droppings of the fowls
were scraped from the floor, which
was an inclined plane, into a trough or
receiver, from which they were shov
eled and heaped up, and the place
whitewashed frequently. This required
hut little over half an hour, and the
manure from last season was estimated
at $l2O, and quite sufficient in quan
tity as an application to his entire
hrop of com. As a rule we do not think
farmers pay as much attention to their
henhouses and the manurial product
as their importance demands. Here
was a most valuable amount of fertil
izing material, obtained with little la
bor, upon the premises, ready for use
when needed, which would have cost
a heavy sum to provide; beside, from
the excellent arrangement of the
house, which ivas by no means expen
sive, an increase of eggs was obtained
which more than covered all the ad
ditional expense in labor.—Oerman

Hot Water Treatment for Planta.
. A correspondent calls our attention
to the following from The Garden , and
inquires whether there is anything in
it: "The Florist asks, Has any one
tried hot water as a restorative for
sickly plants? and then proceeds to
say that M. Willerraozsometime since
related that plants in pots may be re
stored to health by means of hot water.
111-health, he maintains, ensues from
acid substances in the soil, which, be
ing absorbed by the roots, act as
foison. The small roots wither and
cease to act, and the upper and young
er shoots turn yellow and become
spotted, indicative of their morbid
state. In such cases the usual remedy
is to transplant into fresh soil, in clean
pots, with good drainage, and often
with the best results. But his experi
ence of several years has proved the
unfailing efficacy of the simpler treat
ment, which consists in watering
abundantly with hot water at a tem
perature of about 125 Fahrenheit
having previously stirred the soil of
the pots so far as may be done with
out injury to the roots. Water is then
given until it runs freely from the
pots. In his experiments the water at
first came out clear, afterward it was
sensibly tinged with brown, and gave
an appreciable acid reaction. After
this thorough washing, the pots were
kept warm, and the plants very soon
made new rDots, immediately followed
by vigorous growth."
To our mind there is a great deal in
it. We know to a certainty that sick
ly peach trees are often restored to
vigorous health by the old-fashioned
German farmers of Pennsylvania, by
pouring boiling water on the ground
about the peach trees. It cools, of
course, somewhat, before reaching
many of the roots. Here, however, it
is believed to be beneficial by destroy
ing parasitic insects and parasitic fun
gi, rather than chemically, as suggest
ed by the extract. But let the reason
ing be what it may, we are will to
indorse it as good practice.—Garden
ers' Monthly.

Are the <>reat Kvyptlan Monuments
Mass of Stone or Concrete.
It would be a singular outcome if it
be eventually demonstrated that the
pyramids and obelisks of Egypt are
only masses of concrete. A writer in
the Scientific American asserts that
the obelisk in New York is composed
of concrete, the coarse portions being
pulverized granite. The idea that the
mass might be concrete was first sug
gested by a peculiarity of the hiero
glyphics which have the appearance of
being moulded instead of being cut.
The column was then tested and found
to be composed of hydraulic cement
and powdered granite. It is the
opinion of the correspondent, who has
a practical knowledge of cements, that
the obelisk was moulded in an upright
position, the moulds producing the
heiroglyphics being cut in wood and
forming part of the retaining box, as
the concrete was laid up layer after
layer, as rapidly as it set.
A recent writer claims that the vast
stones of the pyramid are blocks of
concrete. If this is true it settles the
vexed question in mechanics as to the
method of raising such cnom/ous
stones to the height of the great pyra
mid. A company of hod carriers by a
single journey could carry to the sum
mit sufficient to make one of the im
mense blocks. Taking this view of the
matter the vast inclined planes which
have been constructed in the imagina
tion of engineers to carry aloft the
huge stones would be unnecessary.
It is a fact that the ancient world
made a building cement which was as
hard and durable as stone. The cement
in the structure of ancient Rome suffi
ciently indicates the superior skill of
the ancient masons. No cement
equal to that of the ancient times has
yet been manufactured.
The hydraulic cement of ancient
times, stiffened with pounded and sift
ed granite, would prove very durable
under the rainless skies of Egypt. In
no other country have ancient monu
ments such a lease of existence as in
Egypt. Rain water is a corrosive
force and it slowly disintegrates the
hardest rocks. When frost is added,
the force of disintegration becomes so
potent that the destruction is very
marked. Jn Egypt there is neither
rain nor frost, andthe monuments are
only worn away by storms of sand.
The impact of sand will eventually
level the monuments of Egypt, if they
are not first burned by it. The pyra
mids show the waste of the ages, and
whether they be built up of concrete
or fashioned from granite blocks, they
must eventually crumble.
Changes in flic Earth's Surface.
Attention has been called by M. J.
Girard to the supposed changes of level
of the earth's surface in certain parts
of Europe. Villages in the Jura
which were hidden from each other no
longer than forty years ago have
gradually risen in sight, while in a
village in Bohemia the inhabitants
now see half of a distant church spire
of which only the top was visible
thirty years ago. The apparent rising
of these places must, it is thought, be
a result of the warping of the solid
crust of the earth. To detect further
changes in the Bohemian locality a
line of levels has been run.

ffapp.r aud Unhappy Women.
Some few women may enjoy being
knocked about in the world—may even
find relish in scrambling, elbow to el
bow, with men for places in the front
ranks of workers; but these few stand
in the same relation to their sisters as
does a man of genius to his ordinary
brother; an unnatural thing, an anom
aly. The few women who enjoy such
a life as It is known that a woman of
the working world must live, have, by
their injudicious over-enthusiasm, done
more harm than they dreamed they
were remedying. The independence
of woman has cast such n light upon
their natural pleasing dependence that
it must be admitted it is now terribly
unprepossessing. Woman's suffering
is very closely allied to woman's suf
frage; woman's wrongs overlap wo
man's rights. Fifty women are unhap
pily at. work whero there is one hap -
pily jiot; and there are just about fifty
women working where one needs to
be, or rather ought ought to be, or
would be, if women had let women
alone. A woman is not fhtod for a
working life. Physically sho may be
able to stand it; mentally she may
flash and brighten,' at heart the true
woman quivers, and dreads the fist as
well a- tlie tongue of the world.
of the most unhappy women I know is

mots are the cleverest at the clubs. A
clever and thinking woman, her work
is as clever and thoughtful. Sho says:
"I would rather bo the weakest, the
least talented woman in the world, the
honest wife.of an honest man who
would love me, and let me love him,
than the most beautiful, successful wo

usurping masculine rights."
Sliain Elopements.
"Half the elopements we hear about
nowadays are shams," said our man of
the wosld, with his air of portentious
wisdom. "Now that runaway match
in our own town, for instance. The
girl's father is a sharp man, but this is
one of the sharpest tricks he has ever
played since I knew him. That elope
ment was all a sham. It's as simple as
can be, The girl's father is one of the
best known men in this section of the
town and is a polititician beside. He
has, necessarily, a large acquaintance
with the element who are always ex
pecting him to stand treat upon the
slightest pretext, and, what with this
and the wedding festivities, supper and
other etceteras, his daughter's mar
miage, if solemnized in the ordinary
manner, would have cost him a great
deal of money. An elopement*saved
all this, so he opposed his daughter's
wishes strongly enough to give a pre
text for the two to run over to the next
town, where the expenses of the wed
ding, all told, didn't amount to more
than live or ten dollars. There were
no fine dresses, flowers, gifts or any
thing of that sort, and \x hen they re
turned home they had a chance to go
to housekeeping quietly and unosten
tatiously. It was a shrewd plan and a
sensible one for all parties concerned.
1 have known a number of runaway
matches which had no other reason
than economy. Parents, relatives and
all were willing for the young people
to commit matrimony, but the expeuse
was a serious consideration, and a little
timely opposition which caused an
elopement smoothed out the crooked
channel in which the course of true
love was running. The cost of the
wedding was saved for housekeeping,
(he young couple were forgiven, and
all went as merrily as if there had
been any amount of marriage bells

After Three Dnya.
Mr. Ohatu.ks W. Morhih, "Eagle" office,
Pittsfield, Mass., writes, May 25, IP83: "For
several months my wife's mother (Mrs. Amy
Boyce) had been in a very precarione condi
tion with dropsy or Bright'a disease of the
kidneys, and having u.-od all methods and
measures for her restoration in the line of
treatment by onr loading physicians, and
having faded to bonefit her, her family de
spaired of rowing her relieved, and gave her
up to die. Happening to inn across the tes
timonyof a Mrs. Paw ley, who had beencurod
of similar sickness by uing Hunt's Remedy,
e at once procure J n bottle of it, and com
menced giving it as directed. Alter using it
three days she was so far improved that eho
cbuld gel from hei bed to her chair without
assistance (a circumstance that had not hap
pened for months). Previous to taking it
site wis troubled more or le c s with short
breath, requiring a continuous fanning to
keep her nine. This gradually improved as
we continued the use of Hunt's Remedy, and
on the fourth bottlo she was able to setup all
day. She was bloated terribly in both limbs
aud body upwnrd to the lungs. The tenth
day the bloating left her bowels, and now she
is not swollen aoove the kuoes. Her kidneys
were very bad nt the time, dischargos being
of a bloody character and emitting a ficken
ing odor. I can say that the change in her
cote has beon wonderful, and Hunt's Remedy
has worked a miracle in her."

A nervous and disease-stricken old gentleman was sitting in his room
on an easv-chair, his physician being at his side.
Said the old gentleman, " Now, doctor, you have been treating me for
a long time, and haven't done me much good. I'm tired of all this. I
want you to strike at the root of all my disorders." >
Said the doctor, "Do you mean exactly what you say?"
•'To be sure I do," said the venerable invalid.
"Well, here goes!" said the doctor; —and with one whack of his cane
he broke to pieces the brandy-bottle which stood on the mantel.
The old gentleman was angry and excited, but he had a good answer
ready for the doctor. " Doctor, if it hadn't been for vour doctrine, I never
would have got into the habit of drinking."
