Authors' Mistake About the Moon.
The editor of the Topular Science
Monthly takes certain imaginative
writers to task for their unsclentittc
ar.d absurd statements regarding
"the ymng moon" and "the c es eni
moon," and advises them to leave it
alone, because they so o:ten contrive
to get it in the wrong place. In a
recent story which has come under
his notice be fJnds two friends de
scribed as sitting out one summer
evening looking over the Thames,
and the writer goes on to say: "By
this time the young moon bad arisen,
and its cold lightshimmered over tbe
misty river." ch writer; are re.
in nded that the yountr moon goes to

FRESH AXB FOB HORSKi
A bright scheme is being executed
by a "ew York horseman, who has s
eon or two carrying on business in the
country. He buys horses at a low
figure that are young and promising,
but are in poor condition, and suffer
ing from heat and harsh treatment on
the paved streets. He sends them by
boat at small expense to his sons, who
use them from a month to two or three
months on earth roads, give them
abnndant green food, and not a great
deal of grain, and treat them to every
liberty and comfort which the country
affords and their suffering natures de
mand. At the same time the horses
are not left idle. The young men are
workers, and find it necessary to work
the horses, but this does not seem to
interfere in any way with their com
plete restoration. When the horses
have improved sufficiently they are re
turned to tbe city, and otners taken
in their place, the father and sons
reaping a handsome profit between the
purchase and the selling price, as sneh
horses rested, refreshed and in good
flesh are sometimes sold for donbli
what was paid for them.
Here is a feasible oportnnity fo?
farmers who desire cheap work horses
and do not wish to winter them. 9fea
who know what horsee are can buy to
advantage animals such as have been
described, from early spring to sum
mer, woik them judiciously until they
are in a salable condition, and let them
go for more than enough to compen
sate for any annoyance they may have
made, and for their board, having their
labor gratis. Two or three horses oan
be returned and sold, and perhaps a
single ono brought back to the farm to
use through the winter and sell in the
spring. Many horses that are some
what stiffened and lamed from im
proper using and excessive pounding
on the pavements can be completely
enred by driving -without shoes for a
season. By watching the feet for s
week or two after removing the shoe
that the edges are kept filed smooth,
almost any horse can be driven most oi
the year on country roads without thai
appendage commonly termed shoe.

a Mammoth Edition of Beautiful
Calendars For 1895.
iFtmtA LomU, UM-, Iturning Mail.)
Hood's Calendar for 1895 may now
e obtained at the drug stores and
tvery one who gets one secures "a
hiug of beauty." Indeed, in the
lovelty of the design and the exquisi te
les of the coloring, the calendar sur
lasses all previous issues, just as Hood's
Calendar have for many years sur
nssed all others. The calendar is
ormed in the shape of a heart and is
rnamented with two beautiful child
aces which have always been charm
ng features of Hood's Calendars.
)n the right is a rcpresenta
ion of "Winter," the sweet little face
rith light brown eyes peeping out from
. dainty cap, while the enow flukes are
ailing all about. The face on the left
s a picture of "Summer,' and is
ighted with blue eyes and the head
overed with a hat decorated with
iright flowers. The shades are ivr
ectly blended and the whole picture is
urrounded by a tasty border. The
U sign was made by Mis Maud Hum
ihrey, one of the most gifted and
:elebrated water color artists in the
rountry. The calendar gives the usual
nformation concerning the lunar
:haoges, and upon the back is printed
i table of astronomical events especi
iliy calculsted for C. I. Hood & Co.
The calendar is issued to advertise
Hood's SarSHparilla, Hood's Tills and
Hher preparations of the firm, ana
s regarded as mot difficult to manufHC-
ure, its novel shape being such as no
ther concern has ever undertaken to
roduce in large quantities. It wa
leeetsary to purchase several additional
nachines eieciaUy for this job, so
hat there was a very large amount of
nachinery and a whole regiment of
leopte employed in this branch of the
txtensive business at the big laboratory
n Lowell. During the five months when
he calendars were being made there
vers actually employed every day iu this
art of the work at tne laboratory six
irinting presses.one bronzing machine,
our eye-letting machines, seven wire
titchers, eight large paper cutters and
.02 persons. At tbe beginning of the
rork this large force was able to pro
luce about 100,000 calendars a day
mil for several weeks towards the close
he daily production amounted to
.40,000 calendars. The edition of
lood's Calendars for 1395 was 10,500,
100, or about 2,500,000 more than last
This, of course, is an immense num
r, but the general reader has only a
nint conception of its magnitude until
ie is reminded that the little 500,000
idded to the ten millions is considered
in enormous edition by many ot the
argest advertisers in tbe world. If the
salendera were laid down in a single
ine they would reach almost one thou-
nd miles, and if the different pieces
n the calendar pads were laid in this
vsy tbey would extend almost three
houf and miles, or from flew iork to
Liverpool. For the past eight years,
Hood's Calendars have exceeded in
lumber everv other similar publication
Hit it waa hardly dreamed that they
vould ever come up to the mammoth
edition which was demanded this year.
Lowell has long been proud of this
rreat industry which has given her
ilniost a world wide reputation, and it
s a matter of no small importance

utnt and profitable employment in the

L. A. Ribas, the Interpreter who is
mployed by the Burlington people, and
who recently returned from a trip to
lapan, where he accompanied the Core
in minister, tells a story about the at-:-mpt
made upon the life of the present
zar of Russia in Japan a couple of
rears ago which materially differs from
the reports hitherto published In this
country. The attempt, It will be re
membered, was made while the then
Czarowitz was riding In a jinricksha,
and the report then published stated
that his life had been saved only
through the prompt action of his cousin,
Prince George. Mr. Rlbas met one of
the carriers of the cart in which the
Czarowitz was seated, and who was in
reality the man who saved the life of
bis royal patron. For this action the
carrier was presented with 10,000 ru
bles by the Russian government, and
the Japanese government also hand
somely remembered the brave act by
giving the man a fine house in Toklo.
The credit of the action was given to
Prince George, It is supposed for po
