Parental Honor. 1( pst,,,i!(h fo,
the Rnving of young offenders from
the reform school uiul the jail, was
one convicted of stealing from his
employer. At first sight, the crime
seemed to be without excuse, for
the hoy enme of u (food family, with
a line of sturdy nnd upright ances
tors behind him. His mother wan
almost he;i i t -broken at: the discov
ery of his guilt. "He has always
been such a good boy!" she sobbed.
Careful questioning revealed sever.il
significant facts. One wan thai for
years the boy had been allowed to
go to his mother's purse and help
himself whenever he ehose, upon the
single condition that he told her
after he had taken t lie money. It
was also ascertained that for years
the father had frequently deceived
the mother through the son.' It is
not strange that the boy had learned
his lesson. In the eyes of the teach
ers through whom he was finally
saied to honesty and truthfulness,
the deepest part of the blame lay
with the father and mother whose
dishonesty and carelessness tempted
him to wrong. "I have spoilt an
hour to-day with Jones' father,"
tin id a college president, in a I'.illi
cult ease of discipline. "1 have con
ceived a better opinion of the son
after meeting the father!" lcn
J'.riggs, of Harvard, commenting
upon the incident, according to a
writer in the Youth's Companion,
gives a vivid picture of the pitiful
procession that endlessly besieges
his otlice door, from the mother who
insinuates that, the son gets from
the family of the father whose am
bassador she is-all his offensive
traits, to the futhcr who, when his
win is suspended from the universi
ty, keeps li i in in a neighboring city
at cost, and with any niuount
f I'li'Viirication, rather than take
him home nnd let the neighbors sus
pect the truth. "One of the sur
prises in administrative life at col
lege," he says, sadly, "is the under
hand dealing of parents, not merely
with college ollieers, but with their.
,n sons." That is one side of the
picture. The other also he knows
the courage, tin: patience, the un
wearying love of men and women
whri, through nil experiences, wheth
er glad or sorrowful, stand side by
side with their children; "parents
holding the standard high for their
sans .and for themselves in every re
lation of life; women, struggling in
silent loyalty, to free their children
from the iniquity of the fathers, and
tuen as tender as women, and us true
as truth itself." There are ninny
desirable things in life many ad
vantage undoubtedly to which
wealth and culture nnd wisdom seem
to hold the key. Hut there is some
thing better than these; and the boy
or girl, young man or young woman,
bo matter how, poor, who has known
great home friendship, begins life
with the most priceless heritage
that the world can give.

About 20 years ago, recalls Hoswell
Field, in the Chicago Post, a learned
man of se! nee wrote a beautifully
profound -routine1 to prove that such
was the peculiar location of Kansas
City that any tornado cloud formed
i:i the vicinity would be diverted by
-he air currents' and carried olong
the course of two rivers. This, right
in the middle of the tornado season,
allayed the fears of the citizens until
two or three. days later, when a tor

the most distinguished religiuiis and

The tragedy that has oecurcd in the
Kurd family suggests to me, writes a
lawyer to the New York Sun, that
many parents make a fatal mistake in
ignoring the rights of certain of their
children in their wills. No matter how
much the conduct of a child may dis
please the parent, that child should
not be cut out of the will entirely and
left with the proverbial shilling. Such
a will, in most cases, creates a terrible
family feud, and the result is generally
that the disinherited one becomes a
vagabond or a drunkard. No matter
how wayward a child may be. a decent
sense of parental feeling ought to in
spire the parent to remember him
fairly in the making of the will.

Peanuts were first grown to any ex

very large proportion of the supply of
Virginia peanuts is obtained.

Some beekeepers make a great ado
If anything is mentioned about a
different sized hive or section from
the one they are using. Such ideas
would keep us all in the ruts to
gether. A difference in the size of
hives is very necessary to suit the
great variations of climate. A shal
low frame that would allow a large
top surplus and winter the bees well
in the sunny south, where they are
confined in the hives only a few days
at a time, would be very risky where
the bees are confined from 80 to 90
days. It would not allow the bees to
form in a cluster deep enough for
Large sections are easily disposed
of among farmers, lumbermen and
those who labor In shops, but city
people who do light work like small
sections the best. I have often
thought a section that could be re
tailed for a dime would meet with
much favor in the cities. Odd size
sections insure fresh made ones,
which are less liable to break than
standard make, which are sometimes
several years old and very brittle.
Square sections do not look well. All
the odd sizes 1 ever used were a lit
tle longer than wide.
Those who intend to purchase a
site for an apiary should make a
thorough investigation to lenrn what
wild flowers or cultivated crops will
produce honey for several years
within a mile of the apiary. The ex
perience of 40 years in bee keeping
has caused me tb believe there is but
very little honey gathered outside of
a radius of one mile from an apiary
if there is a fair amount of flora
within that distance. Of the several
hundred lines of bees that J have fol
lowed to a termination not half a
dozen went the distance of a mile.

"Boas' Shepherd is coming back to
Washington. He has made a great
fortune in the silver mines of Mex
ico, and returns to bis native city
to spend his remaining days in peace.
He is 67 years of age, and enjoys the
distinction of being the best loved
and best hated man that the capital
city ever knew.
Alexander H. Shepherd's name will
live in history as the originstor of
the new Washington. After all is
aid and done, the work of the ex
perts who have planned the future
Washington aa a city of delight had
the basis of "Boss" Shepherd's work
to go upon. That is how he derived
his sobriquet of "boss." For three
years he was the absolute ruler of
Washington, and in that time spent
$40,000,000 in making it what it is to
Uuy. Alexander II. Shepherd, says the
Philadelphia Press, is a native of
Washington. lie was born in the
"flats" Jannary 13, 1835. His parents
were in ordinary circumstances. His
ancestors for 150 years had lived in
this country; some of them fought
in the revolutionary war. Shepherd
himself was for a time a soldier in
the late war. His father became
well-to-do before his death, which
enabled the boy to obtain a pretty
fair education. He entered Colum
bian university. But the execu.or of
the estate, it is said, stole the money
and young Alexander started to learn
a trade to help support the family.
Then he became a shoe salesman, and
later learned to be a plumber and
gas fitter. Within eight years of en
tering, his apprenticeship he was a
pa-tner. Within the next 12 years
he had built more than 400 houses
His prominence in business led him
into politics. He was a member of
Hens should be kept quiet and com
fortable. Do not have the mash sloppy; it
should be crumbly. I
If laying hens are confined they I
should have meat or milk.
Allow us much exercise as possible
to all classes of poultry. .
Unless a fowl is very valuable it
does not pay to doctor it.
Sorghum nnd broom-corn seeds are
excellent as a variety feed. i
(live your house plenty of fresh air
every flay, winter nnd summer.
Milk may be profitably fed in any
form sweet, sour or buttermilk.
The poultry house should be white
washed inside and out, roof and sides.
The time of hatching is of more
importance than the breed, if you
want winter eggs.
Young ducks should be sold as
early ns possible, nnd to that end
should be pushed to get their growth.
Feeding; Meat to Poultry.
When feeding meat to hens do not
use that portion which is fat. The
object in feeding meat to hens Is to
supply them with nitrogen and not
fat, as the grain contains all the fat
and starch required for them. If the,
fat is fed -it does not assist in any
manner to provide material for eggs,
but rather retards than assists lay
ing. The cheap portions of beef, such
as the neck, are better for fowls than
the choicest fat and lean steaks.
Blood is excellent for fowls, and can
be easily fed to them by mixing It
with their soft food. The ordinary
ground meat contains both fat and
lean, and sella for about three cents
a pound; but as the meat is subject
ed to heavy pressure at a high tem
perature most of the fat ia removed.

ALEXANDER H. SHEPHERD.
(Has Just Returned to Washington AfUl
the board of common council of
Washington before he was 25. Two
years after, in 1862, he became presi
dent of the body. He was a member
of the levy court in 1867, and presi
dent of the Citizens' He form associa
tion in 1870. Then congress turned
Washington and the District of Co
lumbia into a territorial government.
He was appointed governor of the
district, and president of the board
of public works. He had always
borne the reputation of being a pro
gressive, liberal, yet determined man.
Washington at this time was a
drowsy, hnlf-northern, half-southern
city. It had been laid out on liberal
lines but had sever conformed to
them. It had no adequute building
laws. Its streets were mud holes
in winter and dust distributors in
summer. Shepherd determined to
niter this. He had the power nnd
he proceeded to use it. One morn
ing the people of the old town wak
ened to find hundreds of men at work
on the streets. It was the advance
guard of "Iloss" Shepherd's legions.

June 1, 1S71, to June 24, 1S74, "Hoss"

the influence of the "boss" or si'

Washington, although it was unpop

Nothing halted his determination
The city became a hive of municipal
Industry. All streets of any impor
tance underwent transformation
They were graded, sewered and
paved, and it is now admitted that
the work was well and admirably
done. Some idea of the improve
ments that Shepherd made in Wash
ington may be gleaned from these
Interesting figures. He planted
more than 10,000 trees' nnd paved 118
miles of streets, besides laying 207
miles of sidewalks. His army of
Inen dug and carted away 3,340,000
cubic yards of earth. He had con
