Herewith pen sketch ot a combination detachable hoe and handle for use in tho garden, which I have used to advantage. Tho handle is of wood, like the ordinary hoe handle, but the ferule ;it the business end is square and of steel, tcrppered hard, with a threaded holo running through tho solid end (mine was three inches solid) for a threaded steel screw bolt The hoe blades have a round hole for the insertion of the screw bolt and a plate of steel with a square holo riveted n'rmly to the blade. The sq\iare end of the ferule on the handle fits snugly Into the square hole in the plute, holding the hoe blade In a fixed position and preventing any stress on the screw bolt tending to unscrew it. Tho advantage of this hoo is tho saving 1 of storage room, for here you have as many different shaped hoe blades as your fancy or necessity may dictate, and only one handle, though it were better to hare two made in case of wishing to uae more than one blade at th* liquid* contain » larger proportion of nitrogen .than the solids, and they can easily be saved with M little labor as it required to the solids.

THE BEARING ORCHARD. A. VegTtubln Mongrel Called Potom»to by Prof. Ualler. Prof. L. H. Bailey, in Bulletin No. 81, issued by Cornell University experiment station, gives a description of tomato-potato grafts. Many statements have been mode through the press concerning tho Ingrafting of tomatoes and potatoes, and great results ure expected, although some of these results will undoubtedly be disappointing. One correspondent says that Prof. Builey has reached thepointof naming his mongrel "potomato," and from it expects to reap compound crops of tomatoes nnd potatoes. This grafting is not a new thing, nor is there anything mysterious about it. In the experiments referred to tomatoes were grafted on potatoes and potatoes on tomatoes. The tomato on potato graft bore tubers and a crop of tomatoes, but the plant which bore the best crop of tomatoes bore no tubers on the potato roots. The vitality of the plant was apparently concentrated in the touiato top. The potato on tomato plants produced no potatoes. They bloomed freely but produced no balls, not because it was on the tomato but because of the fact that few modern varieties produce seed. Prof. Bailey also describes a new food plant, Stachys floridana, n member of the mint family. In general appearance the plant is much like the Chorogi (Staehys Sieboldli) which is sold as an esculent by most seeds- men. It U more slender in appearance and has long-stalked, heart-shaped leaves. The tubers are produced freely and are larger than in that species. They are from four to six inches long and have an excellent flavor. As yet the plant has not been grown out of doors at Ithaca, but Prof. Bailey hopes to make some experiments with it this year. Concerning Its prospects he (ays: "I expect that tho pjant will be able to endure our winters with the protection of a mulch, for tubers which have been frozen grow readily. There is every prospect that this interesting species will add another attractive vegetable to those now in our gardens." /more' needed, and it in for tnls, reason that .wood ashes and bone- meal can be applied to many varieties of fruit to a better advantage than fresh stable manure. One of the advantages In using either ashes orbonemeal is that they are more readily soluble and sooner as-ailablo than the average stable manure. '__ THE OYSTER OF COMMERCE.

Why It lUed* Plentlfal Sqppllw of Pbo*. phkt* kail PotBih. One of the most imporUut requisite* for mukiag apple trees bear early is to furnish them plentiful supplier of phoe- phate and potash. The tree can usually find enough potash in fairly fertile •oil to make sufficient wood and leaf growth, but It cannot produce fruit un- lew It haa an excess of potoih and some addition of phosphate ttlaa These minerals are neceaoary to make the most vigorous and healthfnV leaf growth 1 ,: and are still morerewientlal'in pro^uo- injf fruit.

Codlin moth depredations in the apple orchard may be quite generally avoided by the use of one pound of Ion- don purple or paris green in 100 to 200 gallons of water. The spraying should be done immediately after the petals fall from the blossoms, and this may be followed by a second application in a week or ten days. On no account should the spraying be done before the petal* have fallen, and it fihould not be delayed long after they are down, for the reason that it is not possible to reach tho worms with any application after they hare entered the fruit— Farm and Homo SPRING plowing doe* not hurt an orchard If shallow. Cninnr tree* do well in tod. other fruit trees wilL Touen sod will do In an orchard If half killed out by a biennial coat of strawy manure. TOMATO plants set where potatoes were grown last season will have to be watched. The Colorado beetla will be after them. SPBA.Y first when the leaves are two- thirds grown; second, Immediately after the blossom* fall; then three times more two weeks apart A FEW choice plant* may be protected from cut worms by "wrapping the stem with smooth writing paper. Let it extend half an inch or more below the surface. Br catting or pinching out the fruit stems of newly-set strawberry plants, the plant* are forced to stool out, and thus a stronger growth is secured for next season'* fruitage. CJUTTALODPZ seed soaked in water poisoned with arsenlo will kill the field mice If put in their runs. I killed them in one of my hotbeds this spring by this means. It might be well to mix a little of this poisoned seed with the seed sweet corn. The early gardener catches the out worm. His best work is done at night or early in the morning. The only "lure remedy" I know of to exterminate him is to catch and kill him. Bit* of sod poisoned with parts green water and inverted along the row of plants is also a helpful trap.

Tlie hero who was the first roan to swallow an ovster would be astounded if he could read part of a. recent bulletin of the Uuited States Csh commission and sue wh;it nn important industry he started nil by himself. This bulletin tells about the oyster business in Maryland, but, as Maryland produces one-third of the world's oyster product, the story of the industry in that state contains about all that is necessary to an undi?rRtitndin£ of the importance of the oyster commerce. Of tho 35,000,000 bushels of oysters produced in tho world each year nearly 30,000,000 bushels are natives of the United Stales, and more than 11,000,000 buuhels come from Maryland waters. The value of Maryland's product is nearly ?o,000,000, that of the United States about 110,000,000, and that of the rest of the world's a little more than 112,.MO,000.' It will be noted that a higher valuation per bushel is put upon foreign than upon United States oysters. This is because good oysters are cheap here, while poor oysters are dear elsewhere. When a lover of this delicacy calls for oysters in a. London eating house he is asked if he will have the best, and when he says that he will he gets a sample of Holland's product The oyster 'beds of Holland yield about 70,000 bushels a year, and they are valued in this computation at $440,000, or more than to a. bushel Maryland oysters ore put down at a shade over 50 cents a bushel; but there can be no comparison between the succulent morsel of Maryland and the rugged old molluak of Holland. The latter, as eaten in Europe, looks and tastes somewhat like an ante-bellum copper cent spattered with acid and sprinkled with pepper; and when the partaker tackles this so-called delicacy from Holland It seems to him that the chief difference between the oyster and tho seasoned cent would bo that the cent might kill him and the oyster might not True to his purpose of treating the oyster from a purely industrial point of view, the author of the treatise in question has not turned aside to give even casual attention to the fascinating question as to tho identity of the first man that swallowed an oyster; but he sets forth facts which suggest the inquiry whether at least two Investigators, working independently In the field of gastronomy, did not arrive at demonstrations of the edibleness of this mollusk of forbidding aspect Pliny mentions an Italian oysterman of the name of Sergius Grata who cultivated beds in Lake Lucrinus about 1,900 years ago, and says as much as to say that the Lucritmses were the Baddie rocks of that day. The prehistoric shell mounds of this country show that tho Indians were large consumers of oysters before any white man came. Thus we find that the noble American and the noble Roman were eating oysters, probably simultaneously, at a period anterior to any known association of the white and red races. That the early white comers to these shores did not bring with them the art of eating oysters and were slow to learn it from the Indians seems evident from a writing .of John Smith, published in 1031, in which he says substantially that the colonists got nothing in the way of food from the waters of the Chesapeake. Half a century later it was written of the Kent islanders that one of their grievous hardships was having to eat oysters to keep from starving. A hundred years later began the oyster war that has raged up to this time between Maryland and Virginia, and it is probable that the outbreak of hostilities marks the beginning of the importance of the oyster industry in the United States. The Marylanders and the Virginians discovered that a good oyster was worth fighting for. It is Impossible to speak of the present aspect of the contest, for, like the revolutions in Central America, it is kaleidoscopic. Nothing but the latest telegrams from the troubled waters can afford a view of tho situation up to date. Meanwhile, despite the war, the development of the industry went on until, through tho magnitude chiefly of the operations In Maryland, the oyster business took first rank among the fishery industries of tho United States. In later years the utilizing of the shells hus been an important part of the oyster business. Nobody -has yet answered tho question that the fool propounded to King Lear—how the oyster makes its shell-—though it is known that the shell is three-fourths carbonate of lime, and carbonate of lime is valuable. Because of this substance the shells are used in the manufacture of certain grades of iron, for chicken food (to be converted from oyster shells into egg sheila), and for making lime to be used in producing coal gas and in other industries, sides these uses oyster shells are utilized in restocking oyster beds, making country roads, and ballasting railroads. Instances of tho latter use may be seen on three or four railroads in Maryland and in the Southern Paclfio, near Morgan City, La. .The boats employed by the Maryland oystermen are an interesting feature of the industry. They began with the dugout canoe, and some of the largest boats used in the. business are still nsnooa in. shape, though not dugouts.- you "You won't do for me! ; You may be an excellent servant in many wajfli^ say you don't use Pearline for washing- and dear, [n^-—you can't be bright. -My poor s.;iri, soap takes up youfc time :ir>c! -vcan; o:it the things, with the r;;i-.'.-.;r>-; and those -wretchd! •.v;ish!:i.r;--poH'(k-.rs that you sptuJc of ;r,X' or.iy ;/:;or imitations of Pearl™ :ne, aiK/i >.:;it up -the clothes.

Then three, five, or seven log-s were joinei toR-yther with wooden pegs or iron bolts. One. way of making- a Chesa pealcc dugout is to fashion the outside lines of the log or loffs with an ax and plane until the regulation form of canoe is secured; then to bore holes, uniform in depth, in the boat from the outside and drive wooden pegs into the holes; then to turn the boat over and hew out until the inner ends of the pegs are uncovered. In this way the skin of tho dugout can be made of uniform thickness. Some of these canoes last for many years. The Martha Washington, of a capacity of nearly eleven tons, was built in 1827, and two years ago she was still in use. The bug-eye is a biff canoe, but not » dugout The largest of them are about 75 feet long. They are sharp at both ends, decked over, and they carry triangular saila on two pole masts with a sharp rake aft, and a jib. Some of them are smart sailers. A good ex ample of a large Chesapeake bug-eye has been lying on the beach in Graves* end bay during the past winter. Besides the types of boats mentioned, sloops and schooners are used by the oystertnen, and steamboats by those engaged in oyster transportation. When one sees an oysterraan lifting his Ion{£ tongs out of the water, he sometimes wonders if there is any limit to the length of the poles tho man can handle in his small boat There is; it is about 28 feet Longer tongs are used on larger vessels, but they are worked by halyards fixed to the rigging. In deep water the dredge ii used. It la a heavy iron rake, and is drawn up by means of a windlass on board. There are so many laws governing the use of tongs and dredges that the Maryland oysterman must be a lawyer as well as a sailor and a fighter. The oyster trade gires employment to a large number of girls and women, who work in the "shucking" and canning houses.—N. Y. Sun. HINTS FOR HORSEMEN.

When a sewer it clogged or choked up the accumulations poison the atmosphere In Its vicinity and bring about the conditions that breed disease. We all know that in time of pestilence every precaution is taken, not only to keep the sewers free and open, but even to remove all decaying matter from the community. The danger of infection is thus minimized. How few of us who pay taxes for the maintenance of sanitary bureaus for the public health think of an equal requirement for our individual welfare. The alimentary canal is the great sewer of the hum.in system. When that is dammed up conditions arc generated which invite fevers and such diseases as our nature inclines to. Constipation is a clogging of the natural drains, and nearly everything we suffer from follows 'this condition. It will not do merely to clear the drains from time to time. We must repair and improve the working power of the'machinery whose function it is to perform this work.
