The silver souvenir coin issued by the Cuban delegation to raise money for carrying' on the war for independence in that island was placed on sale recently in a number of Washington hotels and business places under the direction of Mr. Ricardo Diaz- Albertini, second secretary of the Cuban legation, and Mr. Gonzalo de Quesada, charge d'affaires. The coin is about the size of the United States silver dollar and is, if anything, a prettier design. The obverse side of the coin has the head of a beautiful -woman, modeled after Miss Molina, a Cuban lady in New Yorh. ind the motto of the fighting Cubans, which, translated, means "country and liberty." On the reverse side are the words •'republic of Cuba," and tbe coat of •urns, above which is the Phrygian Cl'BAN REPL'BUC'S DOLLAK. ;ap of liberty. The upper section of f ,he coat of arms has two peninsulas, that of Yucatan and that of Florida. Out of the sea between is the rising sun of liberty and a key, which represents Cuba as the key to the Gulf of Mexico. In the left band lower quarter of the coat of a?ms are five stripes^, which on the Cuban fla'g are three of blue and two of white. The right-hand lower quarter has the royal palm tree^ the characteristic tree of Cuba, and a landscape of mountains and rivers. On this side of th« coin are also six stars, representing the six states of Cuba. The coin contains about forty- five cents worth of silver and is redeemable at one dollar when Cuba shall be free. Secretary Albertini said that the sale of the coin had been very good in Washington, when everything is considered. The sale in New York, he said, was very large and a satisfactory amount of money for the Cuban cause was realized. Kentucky Mountaineer*. "The coal in the big Sandy region is the finest in the world," said Congressman Fitzpatrick, of Kentucky. "I got the Government to send a corps of engineers down there to survey and inspect it, but they came back after taking a look at it. They said they were afraid of getting mixed up with the Hatneld-McCoy feud. That is all stuff. You could go to the home of Hatfield to-morrow and he'd take you in and treat you like a gentleman. McCoy would do the same thing. The sight of a McCoy to a Hatfield or a Hatfield to a McCoy is like a red flag before a bull, but a stranger is always welcome. The mountaineers of Kentucky are the finest people in the world. They breathe the pure atmosphere, drink the water as it comes sparkling from the mountain tops, eat plain food, live in the open air and take plenty of ex- srcise. Their eyes are as bright and dear as the dew drops which sparkle in tbe hearts of their native flowers. The blood which courses through their veins is as pure as the air they breathe. They are big, brawny, stalwart men. Their hearts are as big as their bodies. They are strangers to the vice tind tainting influences of the cities. Many of them are uneducated, yet among them you will find nature's noblemen. The mountaineers are the most slandered of people in the South. If a man is looking for a fight he can always get it, but there are no better folk, none more kindly hearted, none mora ready to help a friend than these uame people. Door locks are unknown, the latch string always hangs on the outside, and the stranger, unless he De a revenue officer, is always welcome."-. 1 , Roant for a Small Family. In buying a roast of beef for a small family do not try to buy too large a one, as the family will tire of it before It is eaten. A one-rib roast of the second or third cut will usually be quite sufficient. Have the rib removed, skewer or tie in a round shape, season with salt and pepper, dredge with flour; brown quickly on each side on the stove or in a hot oven; and finish the process in a cool oven. Forty minutes will suffice for the whole operation. If browned potatoes are to accompany the roast, cut in halves, cook in boiling salted (vater untal nearly done, then lay in the dripping pan with the roast and finish there, basting frequ«ntly with the drippings. EfCK" Kept Fresh Three -Month". "It is impossible in some sections of the country to get perfectly fresh eggs during the winter season," says Mrs. S. T. Eorer. "To guard against this, in summer time, when they are cheap, pack them in lime water, and they will keep in good condition, for three months. Pour one gallon of boiling water over a pound of lime; when settled and cold pour it carefully over the eggs which yon have packed, small ends down, in a stone jar, and stand in a cool, daris place. Eggs may also be packed in salt; anything that will close the pores of the shell and prevent evaporation will oreserre eggs." Electricity For a Balkrr.

A WHlinjp 'Searcher, The colored maid, who is a replica In ebony of the celebrated Mrs. Malaprop, bad been told by her mistress to get the afgban and place it in the baby's carriage before taking the son and heir of the family out for his afternoon airing. In a short time she knocked at tht door, and, receiving a summons to enter, came in with her dark face tbe picture of gloom. "What is it, Annabelle?" asked her mistress. "Please, ma'am, I done looked ev'- where, but I cain't fin* dat African nowhere," was the distressed maid's reply. "Ha!" ciied Uncle Dick, his face as serious as a study of Thought, "there's an African in the woodpile here, sur« enough!" Unheeding the smothered laughter, the maid hurried from the room. "No, sab," she cried, returning a few moments later; "I done lif mos' ev'y stick, an' de African wasn't In de woodpile nowhere, sah; but bit may; in de preservatory somewhere. I go look." ..-.ARIZONA'S FIRES. The Temperature of "Well Water RisiiitT Rapidly. The wells along a defined line to the south and west of Phoenix have within a week become producers of hot water, and apprehension is felt by many of the residents of the region affected that they are about to become participants in a grand volcanic drama. In some of the wells the temperature of the well water rose to 20 degrees in a single night. In a few the phenomenon disappeared soon after its appearance. In a. majority of the cases, however., the wells fairly steam from their newly acquired heat. The first known of this curious state of affairs was a report nearly two weeks ago that the wells at Maricopa, o"n the Southern Pacific Railroad, 30 miles south of Phoenix, had suddenly become hot. It waa four days thereafter that the phenomenon first was noticed a dozen miles west of this city. A test at one well, ehowed a temperature of nearly 100 degrees. No difference is noted in the wells in the immediate vicinity ot Phoenix. The line of the subterranean heat wave follows the general direction oi the Sierra Estrella Mountains, a volcano chain lying immediately south ol the Gila River. Thence it appears to continue on in the direction of th« Harqua Hala Mountains, near which are a number of large and modern volcanic cones and hills of drifting volcanic ash. Farther to the east the lava flows are so geologically modern as to have overwhelmed in a number of places the cliff dwellings of the ancients. Though no eartlquake shocks have been noted in Southern Arizona foi years, it is the general -belief that hoi springs have broken out at each of tn« points affected, for the line of the phenomenon passes two rivers. This view is supported by the fact that at Agua Caliente, 100 miles southwest, and on Castle Creek, 60 miles north, are immense springs of mineralized watej with a temperature of 130 degrees. GOOD FOOD FOR STOCK. Root Crop* That Are V»5u»'61e «.« Part ot the Rations. The accompanying sketch shows the formation of several of the most valuable root crops grown for profit in sale or for feeding to stock. As a part of the rations for stock and especially for cows, the various root crops have been found not only valuable, but in most cases essential to the well being of the animals. They not only give variety to the food, but are valuable "system regulators," and that they are necessary to the health of the cow is proven by the greed with which they eat. them, often leaving the best of grain and fodder to drop their noses into the pail containing roots. rim Sticking;. The queen sport of India is wild boai spearing, commonly called pig-sticking. This is on horseback, and the boaj often takes the hunt and the field ovei such a stiff country with so many blind ravines that accidents are reduced to a certainty. The Bengal boar, being nurtured on sugar cane and othei crops, illicitly consumed, is well fed and short tempered. After galloping for a. bit at full speed his breath fails him and he resolves to stop and fight Elsewhere the boar, being less fed and in better running condition, goes further, and in some places he will give the field a long run., just as a fox does in England. In all cases the mode oJ fighting is the same. The boar is wounded by spear aftei spear as the well-mounted riders come up with him. Then he suddenly stops and "squats," as the phrase goes; thai is to say, he turns round, sits on his hindquarters, and faces the horsemen with his mighty snout armed with the protruding tusks. The next step on either side may depend on various circumstances, demanding all the qualities of the best sportsman, but anyhow there is a crisis. If the boar charges he may be stopped by the horseman's spear. If that fail», then the horse is probably lost, being ripped up by on* twist or turn of the tusk. If the horseman, on rolling over, is caugit by tin boar, then he may be killed in tht same way. But that is not likely, because the boar, alter ripping up th« horse, rushes on madly, without waiting to deal witb. tke horseman. The World'* Largest Family, Mrs. Same Hinton, of Turkey Foot Precinct, Scott county, Ky., is probably the head of tke largest family in the world. She Is the mother ol twelve children, all alive and married. She is the grandmother of fifty-seven grandchildren and the great-grandmother of twenty-two great-grandchildren, all of wkom live within a few miles of her.

The illustration Is timely and it is to be hoped that erery owner of stock ot any kind will devote some portion of his ground to growing root crops the next season. They are easily raised, but require for the best results i fairly heavy soil, moderately rich. Figure 1 represent* the Colossal Red Mangel, which is especially valuable ;o dairymen, being as enormous cropper. Figure 2 is Golden Tankard Man?el, a fine-grained and more delicate cariety than the first named and is especially good for feeding sheep and new milch cows. Figure 3 is Long Island Improved Ruta 3aga Turnip, a favorite with growdrs near NeW*york; Bgure 4 Danvers hajf-long Scarlet Carrot, a. fine rich orange red vegetable valuable for stock feeding and popular in the market for cooking purposes .< Figure 5 is Improved Short White Carrot, claimed by many dairymen to be preferable for feeding to the yellow or orange varieties. It is easily '?rown. adapting itself readily to ordinary soils if fairly rich, and yielding enormously.' Figure 6 is Long Island Orange Carrot, and is doubtless the best of all late varieties for general field culture. It is a good keeper, retains its bright or«nge color through the winter and is thus at all times saleable. To Prevent H<Jff Cholera. The chief of the bureau of animal industry, Dr. D. E. Salmon, has submitted to Secretary Wilson a report upon the experiments made in the treatment of hogs for hog cholera with anti-toxine serum. This serum is made upon the same principle as the anti-toxine of diphtheria. Good serum has been obtained from both horses and cattle, a horse or cow being inoculated with the hog cholera virus in small Quantities at first, and with larger doses after suitable intervals of time. The resistance of the animal is thus raised to the highest practicable point The blood of such an animal when injected under the skin of swine has been found to possess both a prevents tiva and curative action. This serum wa» first tested upon small animals in the laboratory and being found efficacious, was last fall tested in Page county, Iowa, on several herds of swine, containing altogether 278 animals. Leaving out one herd, from which d*finite returns as to cause of death could not be obtained, only thirty-nine died out of 244 animals treated, of which eighty-six were sick. Dr. Salmon beli«v«s that with experience a better quality of serum can be prepared and h» has no doubt that this percentage cui b« maintained •hereafter. Sp«edof the Cloud*.
