Precautions Against Drought.
On account of the plentiful ruins
thus fnr It Is not too much to expect
that lieforo the. homou la over we rrmy
oxperioncd weeks of dry weather. In
any ovent the following suggestions
from tho I'Mladtlphia Jlccord In re
gard to preparations for drought nro
worth noting. "It ts n well-known
fact that when tho soil Is kept in a
loose, fine, friabto condition it not only
absorbs moisture from tho atmosphere,
especially at night, but allows of tho
downward courso of tho water during
showers Instoad of a loss by flowing
off, as is tho caso when tho surface is
hard. A looso, deep soil also permit
nn upward tendency of Water by capil
lary attraction, tho loose soil thus stor
ing mo'iBturo by its greater power of
absorption when rains aro abundant.
Wo thcrcforo find it in time of sevcro
drought that tho frequent uso of tho
cultivator, even when tliv soil apparent
ly does not require working, is very
boncflcial, tho greenish tin go of tho
growing corn giving evidenco that tho
oonstant stirring of tho soil enables tho
crop to derive a oertaln proportion of
moisture that it would not otherwise
"The leavos of plants give off mois
ture very rapidly. Whon wo sprinkle
a plant with water tho moisture is not
absorbed by tho leaves as many sup
pose, but it arrests, temporarily, tho
rapid evaporation that constantly takes
plaoe, wuicu is greater when tho sea
to a pump,
son is very warm. We
compare . crowinc plant
which brings tho moisture iroin below
and discharges it from the leaves. Tho
moisture is collected by the roots,
whioh spread in ovcry direction, nnd
tho amomnt of moisture given off in a
uiiy uy a piant as corn, ior iiihuiiiuu, is i
very groat. Wo cannot, ot course,
water a Gold of corn, but wc can at
least lessen tho amount of water which
it gives off. Tho warmer the soil the
more activo tho plant in search of mois
ture. Among tho agoncicsused for as
sisting to retain moisture is plaster,
which absorbs tho moisture to a cer
tain degree, from tho atmosphere. Any
material that serves as a mulch will
impart great benefit to a growing crop,
not only by preventing tho evaporation
of moisture from the soil, but also by
tho largest pro

we should be cautious not to havo too

plant that can bo spared in order that
tho stronger and moro thrifty may havo
better opportunities to mature. A
clean surface and deep tillage will often
save a crop, that would otherwise be
lost during a dry season."
The Head of a Three-Tear Old Child.
Without a doubt tho Greatest cun-
osityin w iiiiBrapon,in ino BMpooi

Eighteen years ago Mr. George Katz
ana Miss Thalka Nash were married in
Williamsport. Their union has resulted
in tho birth of einht children, all of
whom aro living. The oldest child, a girl,
is 17 years old and the youngest, also a
girl, is a Iittio over fourteen months
old. Tho seventh child, Annie Ivato,

ohild with tho monstrous head. Vhen
tho infant was less than a month old it
was seized with spells of fits winch in
a manner paralyzed part of tho body
from which it seemingly never rccov-
ered. Tho child is healthy otherwise.
It eats, drinks, sleeps, laughs and talks
as naturally as any of its brothers and
sisters. Although its language is
rather indistinct it makes all its wants
known very readily ,to every member
of the household. The remarkable
part of the little creature is that in
growth and development the body is
wanting and everything seems
to the head. This part began to dc
velop out of proportion from the child's
early age, until now tho, head measures
twenty-seven and a halt inches around
the forehead and the same tho other
way. Tho head Increased over
five inches within a year, and is now
growing as rapidly as .ever, whilo tho
other portious of the body, especially-
the legs and teet, are not larger than
those of a child less than a year old.
Tho disproportion of tho head Is all
from tho oyes up. Her face is a trifle
larger than is natural for a child of
that ago. Her hair is a very light
complexion and thin. Thu deformity
of body causes it to be perfectly help
less, not being able to sit alone, nor
has it tho use of its bauds aud arms.
Tho mother says tli,e cjiild isvory good-
natured, not making much trouble in
any way. Some of- the physicians arc
battled, while otbors pronounce it a case
ot dropsy. Wo one has over prescnb
ed anything for the arrest of thu un
usual growth, that has taken tho least
effect. At tho present rato' of growth
no ono knows what proportions mo
head may assumeby the time the child
is of age, providing it lives.

say tho least, the child has been a won-
deV to all who have seen it. To those
who havo not seen it it will bo well
worth whilo a trip to see, as an instanco
of tho kind is equally rare as remnrkn
ble. To illustrate out of what propor
tion tho head is, it is necessary to state
that a child's head, at that age, ordi-
narily, measures about 13 inches and a
full grown man's head averages 22
inches i but hero is a threo year old
child with a head measuring twenty-
soven inches and growing overy day.

a sheet of paper in addition to tho cub-

Fill tho goblet brimming full of
water; and cover it1 with the sheet of
paper : then turn the glass quickly
over ; tne pressure ot tno atmosphere
upon tho paper will sustain the water;
which will not run out.

Another exponmeut consists of till
