everything that U next to valueless for

an extent as to pay for tho difference

may be, no farmer who desires his or

TI108O who havo hot-bed sashes can
dry fruit by tho heat of tho sun m a
manner vastly superior to the ordinary
method. A box should bo made like
a hot-bed frame, but willi a bottom,
and it should havo legs to raise it a fow
inches from tho ground. Tho sashes
should lit closely to keep out dust and
insects. In tho front of the box, at
tho bottom, make opening under tho
mlddlo of each sash, and at tho rear
make similar openings at tho top. Wo
do not recollect tho exact si.o wo used,
but probably 12 inches long by thrco
wido will answer. Theso open'mcw
should bo covered with wire cloth,
though in its absenco mosquito netting
or a similar stuff will answer. Tho
fruit, or other article to bo dried, should
bo upon trays or frames covered with
somo coarse fabric, and raised a tow
inches from tho bottom of tho box.
The sash beincr so placed as to catch
tho full heat of tho sun, tho dryincr will
go in a surprising manner. Tho air
passing in at the lower openings will
becomo quickly heated, and going out
at tho upper openings a current will
bo established, carrving off the
moisture from tho fruit, etc., in tho
most satisfactory manner. Tho pro
duct will not bo so white as when dried
bv artificial heat, but for homo use lust
as good, and it will bo freo from dust
anil tho soiling by insects. Wo have
dried tho finest sweet corn imaginable
with a contrivance liko this, and have
no doubt of its efflcaoy in drying fruit.
Forests and Rainfall,
At a meeting of tho Society of Engi
neers in Pittsburg, Col. T. B. Roberts
read a paper on "Forests and Rainfall.''
Ho claims that tho destruction of for
ests has no' effect whatever in deorcas
ing rainfall, but tends rather to incrcaso
it. "Tho records of many years on
nvo 01 the most importont rivers m
Europe show that there is no evidence
to support tho theory that floods aro
increasing in height and frequency.''
In regard to the Ohio river overflow,
ho says : "It will bo observed from tho
records that tho flood of 1884 was only
,lour inches higher than that ot 1832,
fifty-two years earlier. Between the
years 1851 and 1857, inclusive, omit
ting two years of which no records
were Kept or preserved, there were
eight floods rising twenty-five feet or
more, and five reached tho thirty-foot
mark, 'in a mean High water lor tho
sixteen years was twenty-four and
seveu-tenths feet. During tho second
period, irora 1808 to 1884, inclusive.
there were only four floods rising to
tho height of twenty-five feet, and not
till the last flood did tho river rise to
thirty feet or over. But there seems
to bo nothing in these records on which
to establish any theory either for in
crease in tho height ot floods, or for
less low-water dischargo duo to the
destruction of forests, or to any other
cause. Tho excess of rain, tho condi
tion of tho earth, were sufficient to ac
count for the unusual flood of 1884. '
The New York Crematory.
A plot of land has been purchased
in Newtown, LL, by tho United States
Crematory company, and ground is to
be broken for a crematory in about two
months. The secretary ot tho society,
E. A. Caswell, says of it :
"Tho building will have a rich effect
without any pretentious ornaments.
The chimney will bo in tho shape of
an obelisk. Mnch delay is caused by
listening to tho wishes of some of tho
directors regarding the site of the ere
raatory. These directors thought it
ought to bo on Manhattan Island, in
order that it might be within easy
reach of every ouo in the city. They
were anxious too, lor a stylish edttice,
In both considerations thov were fin
ally overruled for tho following rea
"Tho crematory at Newtown will bo
opposito tho Lutheran comptery, and
on very high ground, overlooking Now
York city on one side and Sheepshoad
bay on tho other. It can be easily
rcachod from the Seventh street, tho
Twenty third street and tho Ninety
third street ferries. Tho crematory
will bo ninety minutes from Madison
square. It is about equal distant from
either end of Now York city. The
prico of the land was less than it would
bo in Now York, and henco more mon
oy was loft for a building.
Tho land cost between 82,000 and
83,000. Of the capital stock of 25
000 there has beon 314,000 takon. Tho
building wo expect will cost from S12,
to $15,000, and a crematory furnace
after tho pattern of that at Gotha, Ger
many, ono of tho beat we know of, and
in which hundreds of bodies havo beon
burned, will cost , $3,000. The goneral
plan lor the building will include
ception rooms, nnd a chapel or hall
with a catafalque at tho renioto end of
tho room, and a pulpit or reading desk
boyond tho catafalquo and near tho
wan. .Neither tho body nor the colli
will bo seen after it is placed in tho
catafalque, unless it is desired by tboso
in chargo of tho last rites. Of course
there will be different arrangements at
tho funerals, according to tho wishes of
those interested. Probaby the usual
way will bo to place tho body with tho
oomn or llowers or gilts, it desired, on
1110 cataiaique, over which will bo
covering or pall, which will hide tho
coffin from viow of tho audience. Then
tho body will bo lowered into tho fur

ago ho had just become aware that the

over its possible coiiccqiiciiciH, having

himself, hut by touching others ho
seemed to endow them with vxlraurdi"
nary sliengih. This singular power ho
was able not only to confer oil hit
man beings, lint he umild infusn ani
mals with it, I remember one seeing
a team stalled in a toad leading to
Auburn. They weio iitlnoh d to a
heavy load and ihu forewlieels of tho
wagon ran into a deep rut, and the
horses were unable to pull them out
Tho diivur was about to remove a por
tion of tho load, when Downs uhaticui
to bo dtiviiig bv. Ho stopped, and,
telling tho driver to leavo the load ns,
it was alighted., He rubbod each horse
on the hoad nnd neck, and almost in
stanlly thoy became nervous and rest
less. Uowns told tho driver to start,
them up. Ho did so, and tho horses
hauled tho load out of tho rut with the
greatest case, and went off at such a
gait that tho driver found dillicutty in
controlling them, Hoys who were
barely able to lilt tho heavy sledgo
hammers in Downs blacksmith shop
had only to receive tho power from the
tho bowitched blacksmith's touch
to swing them with the easo of
old Vulcan himself, This singular
strength giveu to others would remain
111 lot co horn ten minutes to halt au
hour, and iu passing away loft tho sub
ject weak and depressed, and some
times quito ill. t or this reason Downs
finally refused to make subiccls of any
one. He was possessed, also, of great
mcsmeno power, and with tins ho lur-
nished no cud ot nmusoment to his
lriends. Every day ho had some ono
running on tho most foolish of errands,
or performing all sorts of odd monkey
shines. Ou one occasion a stern digni
fied and greatly to bo feared clergy
man of tho place defied tho blacksmith
to placu him under tho influence- of his
alleged magio spell. In livo minutes
tinio Downs had despatched the cler
gyman to a tobacconist's, a long dis
tance away, for a clay pipe and live
cents' worth of tobacco, with which ho
returned as meekly ns tho most obodi-
cut errand boy.
Downs fiii.illv ceased exercisiinr this
power also, and bad not subjected any
y . . . .
ono to it for more than a year. Charles
Woodward, a well-known business
man ot Auburn, nnd a great friend of
tho bewitched blacksmith s, tho two
having been in tho army together, re
turned homo from a long absenco from
town about that time. Down s went
to his place of business to seo him. Ho
shook hands with him heartily, and
threw ono arm about Woodward's
neck. This was on a Thursday fore
noon, boon after Downs wont out
Woodward began to dance and situ
and manifest an exuberance of spirits
that astonished his associates. Although
a man of steady and very regular hab
its he did not go home all Thursday
night, and did not put in an appear
ance until late Friday morning. Ho
boarded with a man named Edwin
Blake. Blako thought that Wood
ward, singular as it seemed, was cele
brating his return homo. Blake learn
ed that Woodward had been around
town smashing things generally. Whon
ho returned to his boarding houso
Olako got him to go to bed and sent
for a physician. People called to sec

them by telliug numerous lamily and
business secrets cf theirs whicli he had
no possible means of becoming ao.
quaintcd with. Tho physician said
Woodward was suftenng irom hyster
ia, and advised that he be rubbed with
strong mustard water. Blake undertook
tlio task, llo had rubbed W oodward
but a short time when he was seized
with a strango nervous twitching and
contraction of the muscles. At the
same timo Woodwaid camo to his sen
ses. Blako look up tho singing and
dancing, and acted as Woodward had
been doing lor two days, liesides that,
ho became possessed of most wonder
lul strength and it rcguired four strong
men to manage mm. 10 tins was add
ed tho still more remarkable power of,
telling what tho intentions of any ono
of his attendants was, and what ho,
was thinking about, making itimpossi
bio for them to uso strategic measures
in dealing with him.
It was not until Woodward was ro
stored to his senses that it was known
that Downs had been to see him. It
was then at onco believed that ho had
been under tho influenco of the be
witched blacksmith, and that this had
been transmitted to Blako. Down's
was sent for, to seo if ho could not re
move the spell he hid inspired. He
visited Blako at once, nnd by rubbing
him soon restored him to himself. For
the first time in his life, as ho said at
tho time, Downs himself felt tho influ
ence of tho power, or what ever it
might bo called, as ho removed it from
Blake, and for several minutes ho
could restrain himself with only tho ex
erciso of his will to tho utmost. Ho
said that ho felt depressed and nervous
over sineo his visit to Woodward on
Thursday, and had not been ablo to
account for it. There was no thought
of mesmerism iu his mind when he
greeted Woodward on that day. Ho
said then that ho would nover shake
hands or touch any 0110 again if ho
could help it. I havo never seen him
