—Young pigs, just weaned, should, never
be put into a lot with older ones until they
have learned to ‘‘hustle’’ for themselves.
—Short whiffle-trees, one foot long, are
useful in plowing among trees. With
them a horse can walk close to the tree
without danger of bruising it.
—Use your spray pump for white wash-
ing the poultry house inside. Pour car-
bolic acid on the lime before slaking, make
the wash very thin, add plenty of salt, ap-
—Something that follows and takes the
place of asparagus is Swiss Chard. The
voung and tender leaves make excellent
greens, but when older the centre or rib
becomes large and juicy. Trim off leaves
arid cook like asparagus.
—To have crisp radishes grow them on
rich soil where they will make rapid
growth. Plant only a small plot at a time,
so as to have them in succession. It re-
quires but a short time to secure radishes
from the day the seed is sown.
—It is not the land, but the man, usual-
ly, at fault when the crops are poor, and
the man is to be credited when they are
large and profitable. It is very certain
that the success of a man’s work depends
upon the amount of intelligence possessed
by the man himself.
—A strawberry bed seldom gives but one
vear’s abundance, and is allowed to die off
the second year or is plowed under. There
is nothing to prevent two seasons’ crop-
pings, or even three, if weeds and grass are
kept out completely the first year and the
bed burned over late in the fall and mulch-
.ed. The life of the hed depends upon the
—It is beginning to become apparent to
those farmers who were unfavorable to
* good roads because of the increase of taxes
that all along the roads that have been im-
proved there has been an increased val-
uation of the farms. In Massachusetts it
is estimated that a gain of $6 per acre has
been made, while the gain in saving of
labor and teams is even greater.
—Small seeds, such as those of carrots,
turnips, cabbage, etc., must be covered
very lightly or they will not give satisfac-
tory results. Peas, lima beans,: melons,
string beans, etc., may be covered to the
depth of two inches in light soil, but if the
ground is soft and fine less covering may
be an advantage. It is better to use too
much seed and thin out the surplus plants
than to have plants. miss in the rows.

Twigs will snap easily when the thermome-
“ter is below zero because of being frozen,
and ice crystals can be readily discerned
by the microscope. But the question, asks
Mechan’s Monthly, is, do they freeze solid ?

cells cannot do this and still live.
—As a remedy to prevent the depre-
dations of squash bugs it is a good plan to
dust the vines with land plaster that has
been impregnated with kerosene and tur-
pentine. If the bugs still continue to do
-damage cover the vines with boxes, pour a
teaspoonful of bisulphide of carbon around
each plant, and leave the boxes in place
half an hour. The bisulphide of carbon is
volatile, destroys the insects, and does not
injure the plants. Fire, such as a lighted
cigar or pipe, will cause the substance to
explode, hence it must be handled care-
—Your butter will naturally have good
flavor if your cow stable is kept scrupu-
lously clean and well aired, if you take
pains to get no dirt in your milk, either
during or after the milking ; if you feed
only strictly sound, sweet grain and fod-
der, and if your milk room and all milk-
receiving and butter-making vessels and
utensils are always kept entirely clean and
‘well aired. Dirt in some form or other is
the plain word for much of the trouble so
‘often encountered in making sweet, pleas-
ant butter. .
—The Michel early strawberry blooms
two or three weeks before the Gandy, a late
variety. The objection to the very early
_ variety is that it occasionally suffers from
having the blossoms injured by frost ; but
if the fruit escapes such drawbacks the
strawberry season is extended much longer
than when but a single variety is used.
The Michel Early, Sharpless and Gandy
make an excellent combination for early,
medium and late. The new beds of this
season should be kept in a fine condition
of the soil until the runners cover the
ground. . .
—The avidity, with which laying hens
will eat crushed egg shells shows how nec-
essary they are in the hen’s economy for
egg production. There is no better way to
supply the lime required for egg shells
than this. The shells in the gizzard also
act as grit, enabling it to digest food. The
only care in feeding is to crush the shell
thoroughly, so that its likeness to the egg
may not be seen. Where egg shells are
thrown out without being crushed the
fowls soon learn the habit of picking at the
shells on eggs, and from this they quickly
become egg eaters, a habit which once
formed is never forgotten.
—The ax should be laid at the roots of
all worthless trees and especially those
likely to disseminate blight. In many or-
chards there are Siberian crab and other
trees that cumber the ground and they
should be removed, even if there are no
other trees that require the space they oc-
cupy ; but it is a common sight to see trees
that bear little or no fruit, or” fruit that is-
almost valueless, occupying space that
should be given to near-by trees that need
the room and would, if these worthless
trees were cut out, expand and become
profitable and yet the less valuable or
worthless trees are allowed to cumber the
— Diseased plants should never be added
to the manure heap, asthey contaminate
the whole mass. It is possible to spread
plant diseases over the entire farm through
the agency of the manure, and no farm will
get rid of any disease that attacks plants
until all refuse is burnt. Onion smut, po-
tato scab ‘and sweet potato rot are spread
when the tops are thrown én the manure.
Every tree or plant that is brought on the
farm from other places becomes a mediam
for communicating disease, and should be
carefully examined on arrival, as the nur-
seryman may not be aware of the fact that
a plant is not healthy. It is cheaper to
keep disease away than to combat it after
it becomes established.
FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY HONORED.
The “Memory - of . George Washington, - Soldier - and
Statesman, Commemorated in Philadelphia on
Saturday.—His Monument Unveiled.—There Was
a Magnificent Street Parade and the State Mi-
litia Made a Good Presentation—An Address by
President McKinley—A Prayer by Bishop Whita-
her, of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania.
In Philadeiphia, which first placed on
his brow the laurel crown of achievement,
the memory of George Washington, the
soldier statesman and the ‘man, was hon-
ored Saturday in monumental bronze.
The cord which released the swaddling
flags from the figure of the first ruler of the
republic was drawn by its latest ruler.
Surrouding him were men in whose veins
runs the blood of those first patriots who
battled shoulder to shoulder with Wash
ington. The purpose of years, evolved by
a handful of warriors to do honor to their
chieftain, and carried through crosses and
adversity by their sons and their sons’ sons,
was consummated. The union which they
formed has grown to a mighty organiza-
tion, whose membership stretches from
ocean to ocean, under the name of the So-
ciety of the Cincinnati, while the magnifi-
cence of the memorial itself far surpasses
their highest hopes. :
It “vas a notable gathering and represen-
tative of the country, including the presi-
dent, the vice-president and the cabinet of-
ficers ; its defenders in the officers and pri-
vates of the army and navy, and its best
blood, in the direct descendants of the
molders and makers of the nation. Major
William Wayne, president of the Cincin-
nati, who formerly presented the monu-
ment to the city, traces his lineage straight
to Mad Anthony Wayne, and William W.
Porter, the orator of the day, is a grandson
of David Rittenhouse Porter, twice govern-
orjof Pennsylvania, and a great grandson
of General Andrew Porter, who was on
Washington’s staff in the revolution.
Thus no historic interest was wanting to
The actual unveiling ceremony was im-
pressively simple. Bishop Whitaker
opened with prayer and Major Wayne fol-
lowed with an appropriate address. Then
came the unveiling by President McKinley
and the resultant clamor, augmented by
the national salute of twenty-one guns by
the artillery and the foreign and American
war vessels in the Delaware.
The formal presentation of the memorial
by the society to the city was made by Ma-
jor Wayne to Mayor Warwick, with short
addresses by both, and then the mayor
transferred it to the Fairmount park com-
mission, which body exercises jurisdiction
over the great pleasure ground.
The first event of the day was the firing
of a salute at sunrise by 'the batteries of
United States regulars camping in Fair-
mount park. At 9 o’clock a committee of
the military order of foreign wars called on
the president at the hotel Walton and pre--
sented to him the insignia of the society.
The president thanked the committeee in a
few words and immediately afterward left
the hotel for a two hours drive about the
city. He was accompanied by Mayor War-
wick, C. Stuart Patterson, and a committee
of the Cincinnati, composed of Commodore
Richard Dale, Colonel John Biddle Porter,
William McPherson Hornor, ¢. M. Cald-
well and H. E. Sperat. The party drove
through the park and about other points of
of interest, after which they returned to
the hotel for luncheon.
Meantime the troops were forming on the
streets north and south of Market street.
The sailors and marines from the French
frigate Fulton and from the United States
battleship Texas and monitor Terror land-
ed at 10 o'clock. The parade moved at 10
o’clock, marshaled hy Major General Lou-
don Snowden. The line of march was
from Broad and Spruce streets, out Broad
and Spring Garden, to Twenty-fifth street
and the park, where the monument is sit-
uated. Here from a stand, the president
reviewed the procession. About him were
the members of his cabinet, the city and
state officers, the Society of the Cincinnati,
and the distinguished guests of the city.
The parade moved in the following or-
Provisional brigade of United States troops, Colo-
nel 8. S. Summer, Sixth cavalry com-
Battalion corps of engineers, Major J. D. G.
Battalion Thirteenth infantry, Lieutenant Colo-
! nel W. S, Worth, commanding.
Battalion of Fourth artillery, Major J. M. Lan-
Squadron Sixth cavalry, Major RR homas C. Leho,
Provisional brigade United States navy, Captain
W. C. Wise, commanding.
Sailors and marines from. the battleship Texas,
. Captain T. F. Harrington.
Sailors and marines from the monitor Terror,
Captain Reeves Russell,
Marines from the Navy Yard.
Crew of the French cruiser Fulton.
Governor D. H. Hastings and‘ staff.
Division National Guard of Pennsylvania, Briga-
dier General Gobin, commanding.
Naval militia of Pennsylvania.
Sixth New Jersey infantry.
Battalion of West New Jersey naval reserve,
Provisional regiment of cadets.
The President was escorted to the scene
of the unveiling ceremonies by the- city
troop. The ceremonies at the monument
began at two o’clock, when Bishop Whit-
aker of Pennsylvania made the prayer.
This was followed by an address by Major
William Wayne, president of the State
and general societies of the Cincinnati.
The President then pulled the cord, unveil-
ing the figure of Washington. This was
the signal of the firing of the national sa-
lute of the war vessels in the Delaware and
the artillery. President McKinley then
delivered his address. He said :
“FELLOW CITIZENS : There is a peculiar
and tender sentiment connected with this
memorial. It expresses not only the grati-
tude and reverence of the living, butis a
testimonial of affection and homage from
“The comrades of Washington projected
this monument. Their love inspired it:
Their contributions helped to build it.
Past and present share in its completion
and future generationg Will profit by its
lessons. | z
‘“To participate in the dedication of sueh
a monument is a rare and precious privi-
lege. Every monument to Washington is
a tribute to patriotism. Every statue and
shaft to his memory helps to inculcate love
of country, encourage loyalty and estab-
lish a better citizenship. God bless every
undertaking which revives patriotism and
rebukes the indifferent and lawless! A
critical study of Washington’s career only
enhances our estimation of his vast and
varied abilities. :
‘As commander-in-chief of the Colonial
armies from the beginning of the war to
the proclamation of peace, as president of
the convention which framed the constitu-
tion of the United States, and as the first
President of the United States under that
constitution Washington has a distinction
differing from that of all other illustrions
Americans. No other name bears or can
bear such a relation to the government.
Not only by his military genins—his pa:
tience, his sagacity, his courage and his
skill, was our national independence won,
but he helped in largest measure to draft
the chart by which the nation was guided,
and he was the first chosen of the people to
put in motion the new government.
“His was not the boldness of martial
display or the charm of captivating oratory,
but his calm and steady judgment won
men’s support and commanded their con-
fidencg by appealing to their best and
noblest aspirations. And withal Washing-
ton was ever so modest that at no time in
his career did his personality seem in the
least intrusive. He was above the temp-
tation of power. - He spurned the sug-
gested crown. He would have no honor
which the people did not bestow.
“An interesting fact—and one which I
love to recall—is that the only time Wash-
ington formally addressed the constitu-
tional convention during all its sessions
over which he presided in this city, he ap-
pealed for a larger representation of the
people in the national house of represen-
tatives, and his appeal was instantly heed-
ed. Thus was he ever keenly watchful of
the rights of the people in whose hands was
the destiny of our government then and
‘Masterful as were his military cam-
paigns, his civil administration commands
equal admiration. His foresight was mar-
velous ; his conception of the philosophy
of government, his insistence upon the
necessity of education, morality and en-
lightened citizenship to the progress and
permanence of the republic, cannot be con-
templated even at this period without fill-
ing us with astonishment at the breadth of
his comprehension and the sweep of his
“His was no narrow view of government.
The immediate present was not his sole
concern, hut our future good his constant
theme of study. He blazed the path of
liberty. He laid the foundation upon
which, we have grown from weak and scat-
tered colonial governments to a united re-
public whose domains and power, as well
as whose liberty and freedom, have become
the admiration of the world. Distance and
time have not detracted from the fame and
force of his achievements or diminished the
grandeur of his life and work. Great deeds
do not stop in their growth, and those of
Washington will expand in their influence
in all the centuries to follow. ’
“The bequest Washington has made to
civilization is rich beyond computation.
The obligations under which he has placed
mankind are sacred and commanding. The
responsibility he has left for the American
people to preserve and perfect what he ac-
complished is exacting and solemn. Let
us rejoice in every new evidence that the
people realize what they enjoy and cherish
with affection the illustrious heroes of revo-
lutionary story, whose valor and sacrifices
made us a nation. They live in us and
their memory will help us keep the cove-
nant entered into for the maintenance of
the freest government on earth.
‘The nation and the name of Washing-
ton are inseparable. One is linked indisso-
lutely with the other. Both are glorious,
both triumphant. Washington lives, and
will live, because what he did was for the
exultation of man, the enthronement of
conscience, and the establishment of a gov-
ernment which recognizes all the governed.
And so, too, will the nation live victorious
over all obstacles, adhering to the immortal
principles which Washington taught and
Lincoln sustained.’ .
BISHOP WHITAKER’S PRAYER.
Bishop Whitaker, after the President’s
address, concluded his prayer with the
Lord’s prayer, in which President McKin-
ley joined in low tones.
Major Wayne’s address consisted of a
brief recital of the formation and purposes
of the society. and ended with a formal
presentation of thestatue to the city on be-
half of the society.
President McKinley spoke in a clear, dis-
tinct voice, and was well heard throughout
the great main stand, and his speech was
liberally punctuated with applause.
Wm. M. Porter, the orator of the day,
followed the president.
Following his oration came the formal
presentation of the monument to the city
and by the city in turn to the park com-
missioners. Mayor Wayne performed the
office for the society and Mayor Warwick
| accepted it and made the transfer, James
McManes, acting for the commission. This
ended the detailed program.
President McKinley, the vice president
and cabinet officers were then escorted to
the reviewing stand, to the west of the
monument, and the magnificent military
pageant was begun.
The president was obliged to leave the
stand at 4:30, while the Pennsylvania
guardsmen were passing, to return to
Washington. > ;
The group of statuary unveiled Saturday
is the grandest and most splendid ex-
ample. of the sculptor’s art, in America.
. The conception of the erection of a monu-
ment to Washington found birth on July
4th, 1811, at a meeting held at the State
House by the Pennsylvania society of the
Cincinnati. The society at that time still
embraced a number of officers who had
fought in the Revolutionary war, and they
considered that a monument worthy of the
fame and glory of George Washington
should be erected in this city. A commit- |
tee was appointed and a proclamation was
issued to the people of Pennsylvania ask-
ing subscriptions for a monument. In re-
‘sponse to this appeal $2000 was subscribed, |
but after that for many years money came
in slowly. While the subscriptions were
slow, they were steady, and finally $280,-
000 was collected.
The monument was completed over 20
Years ago and was to have been placed in
Washington Square ; in fact, the corner
stone was laid there years before the monu-
ment [ designed. In 1893 a determined
effort was made to secure a site for the
monument in Independence Square, but
the courts decided that it should not be
placed there, and finally the present site
The monument has cost $250,000 to com-
plete and was designed by Professor Ru-
dolph Slemering, a celebrated artist of Ber-
lin. From an oblong platform of Swedish
granite six feet six inches high, and
reached on four sides by 13 steps, symboli-
cal of the 13 original States, rises an eques-
trian statue in bronze of George Washing-
ton. The figure of Washington is com-
manding, yet animated. Washington is
represented in the uniform of the Colonial
army. In his left hand he holds the reins
of a horse. At the four corners of the
platform are fountains, served by allegori-
cal figures of American Indians, represent-
*g four rivers—Delaware, Hudson, Poto-
mac and Missjssippi. On the sides each of
these fountains is guarded by typical
American animals, eight in all. At the
front and back of the pedestal are two alle-
gorical groups. That on the front repre-
sents America, seated, and holding in one
hand a cornucopia, in the other a trident,
and having at her feet chains just cast off.
She is in the act of receiving from her vic-
torious sons the trophies of her conquest.
Below this group isan eagle supporting the
arms of the United States. The group in
the back represents America arousing her
sons to a sense of their slavery. Below are
the arms of Pennsylvania. On the sides of
the pedestal are two bas reliefs, one repre-
senting the march of ‘the American army,
the other a Western-bound emigrant train.
On one side the pedestal bears the inscrip-
tions, *‘Sic Semper Tyrannis’’ and ‘Per
Aspera ad -Aetra:’’ on the other, ‘‘West-
ward the Star of Empire takes its Way.”
Surrounding the upper portion of fhe ped-
estal is the legend, ‘‘Erected by the State
Society of the Cincinnati of Pennsylvania.”
The statute, the figures and the bas reliefs,
as well as the numerous other ornamenta-
tions, are of bronze, while the platform
and pedestal are of Swedish granite.
Good Roads Indefinitely Postponed.
The Hamilton good roads bill has passed
the House on third reading with an amend-
ment that will certainly postpone its use-
falness as a means of constructing good
roads. The amendment provides that the
bill shall not go into effect until the Legis-
lature shall appropriate one million of dol-
lars to be applied in road construction
under its provisions. , As there is not mon-
ey enough in the treasury to maintain ex-
isting institutions and defray the necessary
expenditures of the state in other direc-
tions the Hamilton road bill, if passed, will
lie on the shelf indefinitely. As the amend-
ment was evidently offered for the pur-
pose. of killing the bill, even its friends
will hardly vote for it in its present form
on final passage.
This is to be deplored, for Pennsylvania
is surely in need of a law that will provide
for and compel the construction of some
good roads. Under the existing law good
roads are the exception rather than the
rule, and the good roads that are main-
tained are constructed by progressive citi-
zens in spite of its defects, and not because
the law in any way provides for their con-
struction or maintenance.
The secret of the opposition to any sensi-
ble and effective road law is that good
roads cost money, and while everybody
wants good roads nobody wants to pay for
them. The present slipshod law permits
the road taxes to be worked out under
slipshod direction, and the work is largely
wasted. An effective law would require
they payment of road taxes in money to
be laid out under expert direction, a con-
dition that the country tax payers are slow
to accept. New York, New Jersey and
some other states have laws under which
some really good roads are heing con-
structed, but Pennsylvania still lags in the
rear on this important subject, and there is
little prospect that it is going to get a good
road law this year.
No one. is injured more even in a finan-
cial sense by the failure to adopt a sensi-
ble road system than the tax payers them-
selves, for the transportation of farm and
other products to markets or railway sta-
tions costs a great deal in time, which is
money at the best. This cost would be
greatly reduced if the roads were good, but
while they continue as bad as at present
this cost will continue at the maximum.
It would be money in the pockets of the
people of Pennsylvania if the Legislature
would pass the Hamilton good roads bill in
its original form without the amendment
that postpones its operation indefinitely,
but for the present they don’t see it that
way and the Legislature is carrying out
what its members suppose to be their con-
stituents’ wishes.— Philadelphia Times.
A Tree-Felling Nation.
It is Now Time for Americans to Become One of Tree
It is a gratifying thought that we are
more and more becoming a tree-planting
Not many decades ago it could be truly
said of Americans, in the words of the
psalmist, ‘A man was famous according as
he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.’’
To our ancestors the clearing of lands from
trees was a necessity ; to-day we realize
the folly of such a clean sweep, unto naked-
ness, as was widely made at their hands.
A most wholesome and encouraging re-
action is now in evidence, as is manifest in
the fact that, according to the last census,
more than one billion trees—perhaps fully
twenty to every man, woman and child—
are being planted every year in our na-
tion. This takes into account only the
trees sold from nurseries ; add such as are
transplanted from the woods and mea-
dows, and those grown from seed by the
people, and the annual output represents a
large increase above the number stated.

A CHAPTER ON COLDS
THAT MAY PREVENT
2 SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES.
The Danger of Neglecting a ‘Common sCold.’ Serious and Often Fa-
tal Maladies may Result From Carelessness.
From the News, Harrisonburg, La.
In most instances colds are the result of
imprudence ora lack of forethought. Even
in cases where a sudden change in the
weather or an unavoidable exposure is re-
sponsible for the first slight cold, fresh and
more severe colds may be avoided by ob-
serving a little care. But ‘‘a mere cold”
is such a common thing and causes so by
tle inconvenience that notwithstanding all
previous experiences we neglect to take the
most simple” precautions, in the way of
wearing suitable clothing, the avoidance of
One should always bear in mind the nec-
essity of exercising a constant vigilance to
avoid catching cold. When the tempera-
ture in the house is higher than that out of
doors, never go out without putting on an
additional wrap. Never sit in a cold room
even though you do not feel chilly. And
it is better to suffer a little discomfort from
wearing heavy underclothing than to run
the risk of a chill.
The following letter from a lady in Sici-
ly Island, La., graphically illustrates the
distressing consequences that are liable to
follow a simple cold.
‘‘In February, 1896, I had a severe cold
which settled on my lungs, resulting in a
serious cough. My appetite failed, and I
became so weak that I was scarcely able to
walk across the room. I weighed only
ninety-four pounds, and had given up all
hope of recovery when I happened to read
an article in a newspaper describing some
cures effected by Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills,
and concluded to try them.
. “‘I commenced using them, and before I
had taken half a box I felt like a new
creature. My appetite was restored, my
cough grew less, and I was able to sleep
soundly at night, which I had been unable
to do for months before.
‘After taking two boxes of the pills I
was weighed again and tomy astonishment
my weight was 113 pounds, a gain of 19
pounds. Previous to taking the pills I
had suffered with cold hands and feet, but
now have no trouble whatever from that
“I can truly say I am now in better
health than I have been for years. The ef-
fect of the Pink Pills is wonderful, and I
can recommend them in all cases of debili-
ty and weakness.
MRs. A. LL. STAFFORD.”’
Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills contain, in a
condensed form, all the elements necessary
to give new life and richness to the blood
and restore shattered nerves. They are an
unfailing specific for such diseases as loco-
motor ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus’
dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism,
nervous headache, the after effect of la

of the House of Representatives at Harris-
burg last week by telling them that they
were not there for their health ; that there
is much work to be done and that it is time
something was accomplished.

parties. He should have addressed himself
to the bosses. The members have had
