Sity Of breeding current worms. This
is done by leaving bushes untrimmed,
- the - worms always attacking the new
L growth first- He Says: "My plan is
this: In starting a currant patch, I
confine the bush not to exceed froth one
to three main stems and - give all the
strength of the root to their support.,
As hinted above, sprouts will start from
the roots each spring; but they must be
rubbed off - when about six inches long.
All currant-growers :Ire aware that
worms first make their appearance on
the new growth and then spread over
the bush. Consequently, no sprouts,
no worms. Thfs is -just as plain
as that two and two make four. I
followed this plan for the last two years,
to my satisfaction, and have barely seen
the effect of worms on one or two brAet,
where my plan was not fully carried out;
But such currents I never saw grow,'
the common red Dutch being nearly as
- large as the cherry currant and a better
beard. Atka a few bugles .that adz•
ally broke down from their load of
fruit." - •
How A SLEEPY OLD MARE ASTONISHED
"I don't remember just what year it
was," Mr. Beok said, "but it was before
I came to Conaress, - and when I was
quite a young man, that I was in New
York city. It was in the days when the
,Bloomingdale road was a favorite
drive for New Yorkers with fast horses.
Now I like a fast horse myself,. - and
thought I had ridden -behind slime.
One afternoon I was up town, or wtfat
was at that time np town, in'New York,
and a gentleman came along whom I
knew. His • name was Captain Norris.
He was driving a - dreadfully bonyand
angular-looking mare, and when he,
asked me if I would like to take a seat
behind him I was almost ashamed to
get in behind such a specimen of horse
flesh. Still, I knew that Captain Norris
was something of a. lover of bow"
and besides I couldn't in courtesy rehire
him; so I got in. 'pie sleepy-seeming
old mare jogged along in a most tile
some way. Her head hung down, and
it seemed as thonghtit was all ahecould
do to drag her legs along.
" go'ont on the Bloomdale road
if you don't mind,' the Captain .said
'and see some of the steppers.'
"Well,lbat would be pleasant enough,
for I thought I would have a chance to
see a brash or two between some of the
noted horses of New, York of that-day.
said to the Captain that I almost won.
tiered why he wasn't out with a stepper
himself, knowing how fond be was of
fast driving. He said that he some,
times did take a fast horse out, and I
remember looking at the dingy, bony
mare, and feeling for the Captain some
of the shame which I thought be ought
to have felt for himself. I noticed, too,
that - the people whom we passed, who
recognized him, were staring at his
mare, , and I thought that they were
wondering how it was that Captain No
rris was out with sue,ll a plug as that."
'l?,y=arid-by a noble animal passed us.
The gentleman who ias driving looked,
as he passed, around at the Captain. I
noticed that the Captain nodded, and
that he took a firmer grip of the reins..
The gentleman slowed up .a little, suf-
to let us pass.
"'Try it, Cap.,' he shouted. .
The Captain nodded.
"I saw that the mare lifted her head
a little as-the grip on the reins tightened,
and put some little animation into her
feet. By and by we heard the clutter
of hoofs back orris. I looked around
and saw that the gentleman was corn
ing at a splendid pace. • _ _
"See if he passes us; said the Cap
tain, and he made one. little-chirrup to
"Gentlemen, I - have seen transforms•
tion scenes. 'I have seen the old man
in the opera of 'Faust' changed in an in
stant to the handsome young fellow. I
have seen a politician change• his coal,
but I never saw such a transformation
as then happened. The mare lifted her
head. Her ears no longer hung limp.
They were erect and tossed back to
catch tne sound 'of those approaching
hoofs. Her dingy. body 110 , 4 ; seemed• to,
gleam, and her legs looked like the
spokes of a rapidly-revolving wheel.
She was all fire, all animation, all elec
tricity. I could think of nothing but a
locomotive rushing along at the rate of
a mile a minute. Heavens; how th e
wind cut my face !
" 'Look oat for your hat, Beck,' said
the Captain,. and I pulled it down over
my ears. I glanced quickly at the Cap
tain; he held the 'reins firmly and his
eyes were fixed ahead. We were
plunging ahead on a whirlwind. I
thOught what a beauty that mare now
is, and I thought there was only one
end of it all—annihilatiou. I grabbed
the seat firmly with both hands, and I
pressed my feet against the dashboard.
The wind moaned in my ears, although
we made the breeze ourselves. I could
hardly breathe, I could not see, except
away ahead." I knew we were passing
team after team, and I heard the people
cheer. I shut my eyes. I thought the
rash would come. I would have begged
the Captain to stop if the speed had not
been so great that speech was' impossi
ble. I said to myself, Jump Beck your

were flying I There was nteraotion ex
cepting speed. We were flying over
the road, horse and riders, ;seemingly
impelled by an unseen, irresistable
power. I opened my eyes once and
saw some men away ahead waving their
hats. In In an instant we had reached
and passed them, and as we went by,
the three men seemed mingled into one.
When will this eud ? I 'wondered.
The suspense was awful. I wanted.
whatever was going to happen to hap
pen at once. It seemed as though we 11E4.1
been an hour riding when the speed
slackened, slower and slower, and at
last the mare stopped. I opened my
eyes and: saw that we were standing at a

the Captain, nonchalantly. •

me aside. 'Don't you know that mare,

B. J. HP.NDALIie4 Do., Cents:-i-I wish to add my.
testimony in favor of Tour invaluable liniment,
"Kendall's Flpavin Cure." In the spring of 18e2
I slipped one ice and sprained my right limb
at the knee joint. I we's very lame and at times
suffered the most excinciathig pain. 1 wore a
bandage on it for a year, and tried most every
thing in my reach, but could And -nothing that
would give me 'permanent relief. When 'I s
worked, it would pain me very much 4. In April
1878 I began to think I. should be a cripple - for
life; but having some of "Kendall's Spavin Cure"
thought I would try it: I used one third of a
bottle, and experienced relief at once._ The pain
left me and has not troublocLme 'since. , I feel
very grateful to you and *OW& recommend
"Kendall's Spavin Cure" to all who suffer with
