j HINTS ON GARDENING.
!How and When to Plant Vegetable and
When the birds como the grass
turns green, and for tho first tlino
sluce the long winter the amateur
i gardener can go coatlcss; the lust for
digging and planting comes. Dig as
deep ns you can, provided tho ground
is not wot and soggy. But beware of
planting too early. Use manure, lots
I of It, but be sure It Is well rotted.
I Green manure Is poison to plants. No
i garden ever was dug too often or too
deep. Digging makes the garden glad
and gives fine crops later on. But
when in doubt about Its being time to
plant do not plant.
It is a mistake to plant seeds or set
out plants In a wet, cold soil. With
few exceptions they will not grow.
At best they will Ho dormant. More
often the cold and wet kill tho tender
germs and the seed and work of plant
ing are both lost. The crop Is delayed
waiting for. the growth which never
No seed should bo planted until the
ground Is reasonably dry, not wet and
sticky. When tho proper condition
prevails put in tho first sowing of the
hardy seeds radishes, lettuce, onions,
spinach, early round smooth peas (If
one must have them, tho wrinkled
ones are better) and the like In vege
tables. The first dower seeds to sow after
the ground Is reasonably dry arc pan-
sles, daisies, sweet peas and nastur
tiums. Really the pansles should
have been started sonic weeks earlier
In the house, or, better still, good
plants may be bought nt the florist's
und set out nt once. It is to be noted
that little pansy plants are tho best.
They will grow better and bloom bet
ter nnd longer than tho big ones which
have been carried over since last full.
A week or ten days after planting
the first seed, if the wenther holds
good, the wrinkled peas, beets and
other seeds may bo planted. Again,
a week after these, a planting of ear'
sweet corn may bo tried, although it
s a little risky still. By May 20 most
seeds can be planted and most bed
ding plants can be set out. Corn,
melons, cucumbers, geraniums, asters,
lobelias and all except the most tender
things are reasonably safe.
Coleus and very tender plants
should not be set out until early June,
and, while bush beans may be planted
In lato May. the llmas should not be j
put in the ground until June 1. For j
the extreme northern states these
dates are too early, while as the Ohio
river line is approached the dates are

JAMES B. HAVENS.
thun five years he was the partner of
tho late Representative Perkins, whom
he succeeds, Mr. Havens stumped tho
country for Cleveland in 1888, was an
ardent supporter of Roswcll P. Flower
for governor In 1801 and agoln for
Cleveland for president In 1892. Since
that year Mr. Haveus has held aloof
from tho politics of Ills party, refusing
to support William J, Bryan in his
campaigns for tho presidency or Wll

Queen Maud's Vision.
It Is told of Queen Maud of Norway
that she Iiob kept for years a crystal
sphere with which she occasionally In
dulges In tho harmless pastime or crys
tal gazing. Long before she ever
dreamed of being a king's consort, it
is said, she saw herself In tho crystal
being crowned, und, regarding tho
vision as nonsense, she gavoMip her
occult Investigations for two years,
How to Check the Flow of Sap After
a Bough Is Cut Off.
The following has been found nu
effectual method of dealing with
'bleeding" wheu necessary to remove
branches of trees that are given to
bleed profusely. This is to procure or
borrow a spirit or blow lamp, such as
painters nnd plumbers generally em
ploy for burning oil old paint and sol
dering joints of lead pipes In Incon
venient places, and with its aid to car
bonize tho wound until the whole sur
face is thoroughly charred. Follow
this up with nu immediate application
of painter's knotting or Stockholm tar,
the former for preference because it
hardens more quickly than the latter
and when once thoroughly hard the
sap cannot penetrate or ooze through
The chief thing Is to well char or
carbonize the wood of and the bark
surrounding the wound also. This
takes some little time to accomplish if
the sap is (lowing freely, but ns the
wood becomes more and more charred
the bleeding gradually ceases, and
when seen to stop altogether the knot
ting or tar should at once be applied.
If unacquainted with the use of a blow
lamp obtain the services of a painter
or plumber to do the carbonizing.
How to Pack Bottles.
A difficulty hard to overcome is the
packing of bottles, especially when so
many are needed on the summer or
fall vacation. It should bo first as
certained that tho corks aro sound and
that the liquid will not be allowed to
seep through them. Then cut pieces
of small, pliable wire. Draw a piece
of the wire around the neck of each
bottle and make a loop, drawing tight.
Put tho other end ucross tho cork,
forming unothpr loop around the neck
of the bottle. When It is prepared In
this way the bottle may bo carried in
trunk or bag without danger of leak
How to Make Almond Sauce.
T,hls is uu excellent sauco to servo
with any boiled or baked pudding.
Blanch and pound eight ounces of
sweet almonds with a few spoonfuls
of rosowater or lemon Juice. Add to a
pint of thin cream and four table
spoonfuls sugar. Allow to como to a
boll. Pour over tho well beaten yolks
of three eggs. Stir over hot water un
til it thickens. Just beforo serving add
tho whites of tho eggs beaten to a
stlfT snow. It then becomes a dell
clous foamy sauco and may bo served
either hot or cold.
Women at Cornell Occasionally
Snubbed but not Actually Os
tracizedMen are not as a Rule
Unfair or Even Ungallant To
ward Feminine Colleagues.
"Tho statement that at Cornoll tho
young women are ostracized Is a pure
fiction which a perusal of tho list of
married alumnao would promptly re
fute," says a writer In tho Independ
ent. "Two hundred callers on a Sun-'
day afternoon Is not an unusual num
ber for Sage College- the principal
woman's dormitory. This, Is almost
one npiece, although I presume they
nre not evenly distributed. At any
rato, It does not look llko ostracism.
"On the wholo I think the women
In Cornoll get as much masculine at
tention as Is good for them nnd I know
thnt some of them get moro than they
duslre. As for social recognition, that
Is something which tho coeds may
hope for but cannot rightly demand.
In the State universities they get al
together too much 'social recognition.'
"The class of young men wlio ob
ject to tho presence of the young worn
or. Is, howover, small at Cornell
smaller than In the other Eastern uni
versities, though larger than in tho
Western. But as they aro leaders in
the fraternities, which hero as every
where dominate the society -life of tho
university, they make themselves un
pleasantly conspiclous at times.
"Ono episode will have to be men
tioned, although It Is rather sickening,
for It Is a part of Cornell's social his
tory. The leader of the sophomoro
cotillon not long ago asked a univers
ity girl, his fiancee, to take part In
that function with him. His associ
ates thought this an undue recogni
tion of the exlstonce of the coeds and
prevailed upon him to break or get re
leased from his engagement tho
dance engagement and take an out
side girl Instead.
"The Incident was unfortunate, be
cause it caused some natural resent
ment even among those who were far
from aspiring to tho honor of leading
a sophomoro cotillon, and more be
cause It misrepresented the spirit of
Cornell young men as a whole. They
are not as a "rule unfair or even ungal
lant toward their feminine colleagues.
"For example, when Miss Cook won
the Woodford, a prize In oratory
which has always been highly esteem
ed. It, called out admiration rather
than resentment. She also secured a
position on the debating team, and
when the Columbia boyu objected to
her appearance on the platform as one
of their opponents there was no
thought of yielding on the part of Cor
nell. "Such an Incident, In ray opinion,
outweighs a hundred cotillons, though
perhaps not all young ladles will agreo
with me. The enthusiastic advocates
of co-education in Cornell probably
equal In number the bitter opponents.
"Some of the finest young men in
the university have chosen Cornell
partly because they believed in co
education. The great majority of tho
students arc altogether indifferent on
the subject, and It is not to bo re
garded as a serious question."
FOR THE CHILDREN
Colorado Snow Flea.
The observing Colurado miner can
not furnish you sclotitlllc names, yet
he will tell you at once that red snow
is caused by the suow flea. The snow
flea Is very small. It would require
about fifty of them to equal thrlr
larger brother of tho east In size.
A person walking upright might
think tho snow covered by a very line'
dust, but if your eyes arc good and
you placo your face within eighteen or
twenty Inches of tho snow you can
easily discern the snow ilea. Although
so small as to be almost imperceptible
to the naked eye, yet they are most
active, Jumping from twelve to fifteen
To tho naked cyo they appear to be
dark brown In color, but under n good
microscope they would be found to be
n reddish brown. During cold weath
cr they stay under tho bark of trees,
but when it Is a nice, warm day nnd
the sun shines brightly you can find
them on the southern and eastern
slopes of the mountains, where they
can get tho direct rays of the sun.
During tho day they will ascend the
mountains, sometimes far above the
timber lino. When tho sun disappears
and It gets cold tho snow flea freezes
to death. During the winter great
numbers will be thus frozen, and their
dead bodies color tho snow.

Fight With a Big Fish.
The whip ray, sea bat or devilfish,
as it Is variously named, is fairly plen
tiful in Galveston bay, so tho appear
ance of four of these sea monsters nt
one time the other day did not excite
any special remark. But they were
seen by three boys, all under sixteen,
nnd they determined to get one and
sell it. So ono of tho boys borrowed
a Winchester rifle, while tho other two
got a rowboat and a harpoon, and out
they went after their prey. Tho boys
rowed around awhile and soon saw
ono of the fishes and pulled up within
forty or fifty feet One of tho boys
fired a shot into the ray, which imme
diately breached, scooting fully twen
ty feet out and nhend. like a flying
fish. Two more shots wero fired, and
after beating the water furiously It
died. Then a harpoon was thrown
Into the creature, and it was towed to
the wharf, where It was slung and
hoisted out with a windlass. This
fish measured fourteen feet from wing
tip to wing tip.
The other day two little girls met
In the street car. They hadn't seen
each other for quite a long time, so
they shook hands heartily and said.
Why, how do you do?" .at tho same
moment. Had these two met in Eng
land the greetlug would have been
much tho same, but In Franco they
would have said. "How do you carry
yourself?" In Italy. "How do you
stand?" In Germany. "How do you
find yourself?" In nolland. "How do

In Egypt. "How do you perspire?" In
China, "now Is your stomach?" Iu

In Russia, "How do you live on?" In
