Of course I do not mutilate his letters by cutting off the signature, but on old checks and similar documents I often find a name that has been signed by him." Mrs. Sheridan is a pretty woman, with a slender figure, dark hair arranged gracefully over a low, white brow, an oval face lighted by bright brown eyes. In manner she is gentle and sweet, with pleasant, sunny ways, and there is no one who has more sincere friends than the quiet little wife of Phil Sheridan. Mrs. Sheridan goes little in society, but seems to prefer remaining- at homo. Mary Sheridan, who has just made her debut, is very popular, and has received n great deal of attention from her mother's friends. The two girls who arc at school arc twins, aud for many years when they were small children . together they used to be seen hand in hand walking about the streets of tho city,, aud every one knew them as "tho Sheridan twins."

The conversation turned upon the life-long ^experiences of priests, their insight into the depths of human nature, and the strange secrets of which, in virtue of their office, they must become the depositaries. To point his remarks his eminence said: "For instance, gentlemen, the first confession 1 ever received was that of a murderer." At that moment, and while expressions of wonder, interest and horror were still upon the lips of his audience, the door opened and a nobleman of the highest rank, a man well-known among them, entered the room. He saluted the company and then paid his respects to-thc prince of the church, adding gracefully, as he turned to the company: "You arc perhaps not aware, gentleman, that 1 had the honor -to be his eminence's first penitent," The consternation of the company and his eminence's state of mind-may be imagined.—San Francisco Chronicle.

In the early autumn I had a quantity of wood sawed, stove length but not split. In early December J got time to split it, and as it was likely to be wanted for the fire before spring I set about drying it, which is not an easy matter, us every farmer knows. I adopted a plan which worked well on a- former occasion, and which is illustrated in the drawing. It simply consists in piling the wood "cub-house" fashion, the sticks being piled in puntcigou or hexagon form, the latter being the best, the piles bcmg built as high as one can reach. The piles may be in a double rank with corners JUKI touching, so as to give mutual support, and wide boards may be placed on top of each row slanting outward so as to shed the rain away from the wood. Hark may be used, or the top of each pile finished with wood laid close with a rapid slope toward the outer side of the pile. Even without cover, wood laid up in such piles dries very rapidly, wind, sun and air, as well as frost, having full chance at each stick. This morning I piled in the loose form of the drawing a lot of wood that hud WOMEN AS FARMERS. lain in a conical pile just as split, through a three clays' raiu. It was thoroughly wot and with the damp atmosphere and close lying sticks it would not have dried perceptibly before another storm, but piled so that the air and sun and a trifle of wind could pet at it, it looked quite dry in four hours, and after eight hours I believe has dried more than it would have done iu two weeks in a close pile. The night freezes will also pet In their work, and a month from the time of pilinfr the wood -will be about as well dried as if, ranked up, it laid until next May. livery woman who ever put out a wash in winter, knows how clothes will freeze dry, even when there is no sun, and the action of frost is the same in the case of wood, the drying being- most rapid in the case of finely split wood. Tiled as illustrated, all the drying forces of nature except extreme heat'have fall sway, and it-is possible to have tolerably dry wood in March even, if not split until the leisure of Decein- 1j Cr .— \ Jm 15. 1'iercc, in Ohio Farmer. ROTATION OF CROPS. A Practice ThaC Assists In tlio TlioroncU I-JxtprmlOfttlon of Wrods. Hotating tho iarm with different crops serves not only to prevent loss of fertility, but also assists in killing weeds with no extra cost than that required lor cultivating the crop that may bo grown daring the season. Corn has proved of as much vali'.c to farmers in compelling them to kill weeds a.s it has in providing grain nnd fodder, and if a farm should be devoted wholly to the crops that arc drilled or broad- casted, itnd which cannot be cultivated —such as wheat, rye, barley and oats— there would arrive a time when weeds would have full possession. To prevent this "condition of affairs the farms arc nuinc to grow crops that must of 'necessity be cultivated, and in so doing there is a saving of labor iu the killing of weeds. The rotation with corn as the only cultivated crop, however, is too limited, as the laud is thus made to produce grain of some kind every year, which is detrimental, as depriving 1 it of certain plant foods and 1 leaving an excess, comparatively, of that which cannot be \itilixed by grain crops. • One cause of -weeds flourishing on some soils is that -they thrive on plant foods left, over by the grain crops, a condition which renders the soil impoverished for other grain crops, yet very fertile for weeds because the weeds are able to get a good start, make rapid growth, secure abundant moisture below the surface and deprive the land of that which was not utilized by thc crops, the result being- that the soil is still further, .impoverished. This may be prevented by growing- root crops after corn, to be followed by clover or some grass crop. Jso two crops of the same kind should be grown on the land in succession, and a crop that is sowed or drilled should' be followed by a planted crop the next year, to keep the soil clean. Wheat, corn,'oats,' potatoes, 'corn and clover, followed by wheat again, is a rotation practiced by many progressive farmers; but turnips,. carrots, beets, cabbage, millet and peas or beans are added to the list whenever it can be done with advantage.—^Colmanls Rural .World. , How to Expret* Jfc^''' •,, "I'm•• -so sorry supper isn't ready,"' paid Mrs. Dinsmore.toher husband, when he.came in. ..."I attended the .meeting of the sewing circle this afternoon, and.

They Are Said to Be .Much More SneceM- ful Than Men. It is said by those who claim to be in a. condition to know what they are talking about that the woman who takes up fruit culture, farming, ranching and stock raising will make a success out of it nine times out of ten. Women are, in proportion, very much more successful than men. so says this authority, for two • reasons. One is. they are accustomed to sit down when their work is done, and find entertainment in some way without going outside for it. Another is, that they do not spend all of their loose change at the grog-shop and the corner grocery. It is this constant drain on I he man's resources that keeps him continually short, lie has very little idea, if he har, ever slopped to consider the matter, how much of his su'.isl;mee goes in drinks, in a box of cigars here arid a little sport there. Women, for evident reasons, do not indulge in this kind of thing, therefore all that they collect can be used to further the interests in hand. It may be said, besides, that women are more attentive to their busincss,-and, naturally, very much more careful of young animals and plants and the little tilings that need coaxing and coddling. One of the trials of the woman who prefers out-of- door life is the difficulty she finds in g-ctting proper help indoors in order that she may not wear herself out in trying to do"both kinds of work. After the farm and the stock have been eared for, she is in no condition to come in and cook meals and wash dishes and should never undertake such tasks. In California it is almost the rule that the women who take up out-of- door work make money at it. There is nD reason why they should not do the same everywhere. Wherever there is land and a market, women can get a good living from the soil, and can so arrange their affairs as to have an abundance of leisure for study and self-improvement, as well as whatever amusements their environments will permit. Quite a number of women have found their health entirely restored by taking up open-air occupations. One in California .has set out several thousand trees, and her fruit and garden products furnish her with a good income. In floriculture women have been eminently successful, and quite a number of them are pursuing this business with profit to themselves and the greatest satisfaction to their customers. Horticulture, in all of its branches, is suited to women, and there are not a few veterans iu this line who predict that, within the next ten years, half of this business will be in feminine hands. —N.

It may be built as long or short as desired, varying with the amount of ice to be stored. It is not made for beauty but for service. Evergreens should be planted on each side, as they help to keep the house more cool in hot weather. For its construction, boards ,JG feet long are used, longer or shorter according to the capacity desired. The girths may be of ICE PRESERVATION MADE EASY. 2x3 or 2x4 'scantling and 3 feet apart. Shingles are not required. The cracks ,on the outside may be covered with boards or battened. Such a house will be in serviceable use at least 20 years. The ground should be dug out a foot deep. Two doors may be made, one above the other and each 3x0 feet. At A the boards arc cut sufficiently to allow putting in sawdust. The filling in the spaces U is also made with sawdust. The filling is less at the top than the bottom, as the top will be used before hot weather sots in. Being built in this shape there will be no pressure on the sides should the ice melt more at the bottom than the top. An ice house of the dimensions here described will -contain about 35 tons.—John L. Davenport, in Farm and Home. HINTS FOR HORSEMEN. A CKACKED hoof will spoil a good "horse quicker than anything else.
