ANDAUUSIANS AND HAMBURG8. Kotcil For Elegance nf Cnrrlnge and Bounty of Flnmngo. The AndnlnsinnB originated in Andalusia, Spain. Like the Leghorns and Spanish, they are generally marked by large combs, white ear lobes and the upright carriage which seeing to character- GROWING POTATOES. ANDALUSIAN COCK AND HEN. Ice all the fowls which have been imported from the countries lying along the Mediterranean. Their shape is indeed so exceedingly like that of the Leghorns that one is tempted to at once pronounce them a cross between the White Leghorns and some darker fowl. And the additional fact that they are nonsit- ters points seemingly to the same conclusion. The Poultry World tells that the Anda- Insians were imported by English fanciers nearly 20 years ago and almost immediately crossed with Black Spanish in order to increase their size; hence a really pore Andalusian can rarely be found —that is, an Andalusian like those found in their original Andalusia—though birds Which have been bred to a feather for 20 years must be acknowledged as pure as any of our Cochins, Brahmas, or in fact any variety of our poultry. The Anda- lusians are very prolific layers. All who have ever bred these beautiful fowls declare that they tread close on the heels of the Leghorns in egg production, even if they do not excel them. They are very precocious, and the chicks come into the •world with a thick covering of down, which rapidly changes to a fine coat of feathers. The Hamburg has beauty. All of the lines of its figure from the typical rose comb to the full, flowing tail are lines of grace and beauty, and this beauty is heightened by the plumage. The white, now the rarest variety, is white, clear, pure, shining white. The black is of the most lustrous black. The penciled fe- A PATH OP WHITE HAMBUBQS. males are the perfection of accurate markings, and the golden and silver cocks are each beautiful in its own way. The spangled birds of both sexes are examples of accuracy and beauty in marking. Truly the Hamburgs of all varieties deserve to be classed as beautiful fowls, eays the authority quoted, which also explains that this breed has utility. As layers they have few equals, and in number of eggs we doubt if any superiors. The eggs are rather small, it is true, but their name is legion, for they we many. They deserve the title of "everyday layers," for they approach very closely to that. And then they are email eaters.' It doesn't cost much to keep them. They require little food and small space. Decided objections to the breed are Bummed up as follows: It is small, and its legs are blue, and it flics with great ease. However, if any one wishes a fowl for home use—one that combines remarkable laying, cheap support and great beauty—he will not choose unwisely in choosing any one of the six varieties of Hamburgs. Nltruto of Soda on Grwu. It is advised in The Prairie Farmer to BOW a mixture of, nay, 150 pounds of nitrate of soda, 900 pounds of powdered phosphate of lime and 100 pounds of eoda ush to tho acre, or in that proportion, on tho lawn in tho spring, in sea- Bon to get the benefit of the April showers. Sow it broadcast as evenly UB possible, The above treatment will not only greatly improve tho lawn, but will also give increased luxuriance to tho trees, shrubs, roses and flowers that may bo on tho lawn. Tho total oxperaa for the above materials in quantity as atutod is from $5.90 to $0,75, us to the amount purchased. Tho above mixture cup also be applied to puuturo laud with economy and advantage, It not only increases the crop of grunts, but improves tho quality as well, making it more nourishing.

A method of growing potatoes for seed, advocated hy an Illinois farmer iu Farm, Field and Fireside, is to plant Under straw. He says: This has been called the Inzy man's method, but the amount of labor in the aggregate between the ordinary way anil planting under straw ia probably about the same, but iu the one case planting and cultivating are done at different times, strung out, BS it were, and thereby the labor does not seem so great, but in the other case it must all bo done at once and done quickly, and if the operation be properly peiformed and tho field of any extent it requires several teams, a number of hands and plenty of muscle. But the beauty of it is when once completed there is nothing further to do to the crop until digging time. Some who grow crops in this manner prefer to plant first and wait until the potatoes are just coming through the ground before applying the straw. This would be all right provided that yon would get no heavy rains in the meantime, which is almost certain to occur, and then your finely pulverized and mellow field is packed solid, and wheu the straw is put on the soil below is cold and clammy and remains so throughout the summer, and the crop will not be at its best. My own experience has taught that the best way is to plant as soon aa you can get the gtound in perfect condition and there is a prospect of fair weather, then complete the whole operation at once, get plenty of teams and hands and hustle the job along. Some argue that the yield-of straw grown potatoes ia much less than by open culture. That is simply because they do not know how to plant. I have aeen farmers intending to mulch pota toes mark the rows 8% feet apart and drop the sets from 10 to 18 inches in the row. Such a method is absolute folly. The object of space between rows of potatoes is to enable cultivation, and as we need no space for cultivation where straw is applied it is a loss of one-half the crop to plant at such distances. Eighteen inches apart is ample space for the rows, and the sets as near eight inches as yon can get them. Our crop last year planted at these distances made a little better than 400 bushels per acre and but very few small ones. If I could find any method to cover properly at 12 inches for the rows, I should plant at that distance, but it is quite a difficult matter to cover properly even at 18 inches. Another Illinois farmer who practices this method advises for growing potatoes under straw the selection of rich, loamy soil, well drained. He claims that the Colorado beetle never attacks the.vinos of potatoes grown under straw to a sufficient extent to develop it into a pest. A Marker For Onion Ground. The home garden is supposed to be in a high state of cultivation. The regular annual allowance of manure will in all probability be fully sufficient even for this crop, which is known to thrive best on plenty and rich food. If you have the manure, however, a light top dressing on the plowed ground will be sure to give good results. Deep plowing id not necessary, but the surface should be well fined and kept well stirred during the entire season of growth. A email bed can be marked out with a garden line or a rake or hoe handle. For larger FROM A POPULIST VIEW. Chairman Taubeneck Discusses the President's Veto. AS HE UNDERSTANDS ITS POLICY It Mnnrn Destruction of Enterprises, Issue of More Hands So flint National Hunks Cren Borrow Money Cttenp—Predicts the Word Populist Will llo tha Rallying Cry of the Mimes—\Vmhlngton Jfoirs. WASHINGTON, April 2.—H. E. Tnube- neck, chairman of the national committee of the People's Party, has issued the following statement: The president in vetoing the seigniorage bill hns brushed •every pretense of the old parties nside. The Apache warfare of cunning and ambush is no kmger necessary. The agent of the gold combination proclaims the soldiers who serve under him, whether Reptiblicans or Democrats, must boldly assert their loyalty to the money kings. In the future the people can take their choice, either aid in strengthening the chains of money contraction by voting for candidates to servo in the ranks of the Republican and Democratic parties or unite before it is too late with the Populists for liberty, equal rights and an American financial system. The policy of the veto message means the destruction of all enterprises, the issue of bonds to pay the current expenses of the government and that national -banks are to obtain money from the government at 1 per cent. The only compromise offered in the veto measure is the suggestion the United States might be allowed to coin and use 155,000,000 seigniorage in the treasury if unlimited authority be granted hy congress to issue bonds and, perpetually mortgage the resources of the United States to the money power. Such terms to a fallen foe in open war would shock every principle of humanity, but when the money power through their agente tells the people of the United States they shall not coin and use their own money without subjugating themselves and prosperity to a bondholding oligarchy it is evidence sufficient to show the regard oncentrated wealth has for the rights of man. In coming campaigns the, word "Pop- list" will be the rallying cry of the masses against the classes. The sneers f the liveried soldiers and collared sub- ects of the "money power" who have rought desolation, hunger and want o their homes will encourage and inspire very local citizen to espouse the cause f liberty, human rights and an Amerian financial system. BUSINESS BEFORE CONGRESS. will move to pass the bill over the veto. As it requires a two-thirds voto to overrule the objections of the president, here is little hope that Mr, Bland's mo- ion can be carried. But, nevertheless, t is expected that the debate will be of an exceedingly lively character. The lilver men are in a state of revolt and hey avow their purpose to rake the administration fore and aft. Some outspoken criticism can lie looked for, The debate upon the proposition to pass tho bill over the veto may last nil week if ;he silver men are so disposed, as the Republicans will be glad to join them to prevent a limit being placed upon it. When tho veto message is disposed of ;he house will again go back to the appropriation bills. The postofflce bill is itill unfinished. It will be followed by the conaul and diplomatic and the army appropriation bills. A GAUDEN 31AHKER. operations wo need a marker that will Indicate the rows without leaving regular furrows such as we need for seed sewing. Here is an excellent device that was originally illustrated in Tho Practical Farmer. Tho illustration explains itself. Tho teeth are 19 inches apart, and their point runs just far "enough below tha wheel to leave light marks. Tho onion plants are then "dibbled" in throe inches apart in tho row. At this rate it will take about 1,000 plants to set a square rod of ground. J-lHtlujf Method In Corn Culture. Mr. George T.

LINCOLN, Neb., April 2.—Word was received by Bishop Bonacum citing him to appear before Archbishop Hennessey of Dubuque, sitting in the Court of the Metropolitan at Omaha on Tuesday, April 12, to answer the charges preferred against him by nine priests of his diocese. These are the charges filed June aO last with Mgr. Satolli, and by him referred to Archbishop Hennessey for hearing thereon. Both sides are ready for trial, but the accusing priests are not satisfied with the choice of Omaha an the place of trial. A meeting of the clergy was held, at which it was decided to ask the Archbishop to transfer the hearing to Lincoln on the ground that most of the witnesses reside in or near this city, and any additional burden of expense .upon the priests, who have already made great outlay to prepare tor trial, would be an unjust hardship. Eight Men Went Down. RADFORD, Va., April 2.—The collapse of flie large wooden bridge near here was greater than at first appeared. Eight men went down 80 feet. Three were instantly killed Charles Thomas, Edward Mabee and C. Andrews (all white) were their names. T. M. Me- Cullocb, the contractor • has since died. Thomas Price, contractor with Johnson and James Garners, . the latter colored, cannot live. Tariff Speeche* Will Probably Occupy the Attention of the Senate. WASHINGTON, April 2.—The tariff bill was taken up for consideration in the enate, and will in all probability be the jrominent topic of debate during the en- ire week. There are other measures which may claim attention, none oi uem being likely to receive it withoul toe consent of the managers of the tarif pill. Senator Hansbrough's bill for the ^termination of the Russian thistle ap- jears upon the calendar as the un- nished business, and is in a position •where it could be legitimately pressed i ts author should feel so disposed, but it IB fair to presume that it will be quietly aid aside for the tariff bill. Other ques- ions which way press for consideration .uring the week are the Chinese treaty and the proposed bill for tho regulation of the Bering sea seal fisheries. Senator Morgan has stated that he will probably ask the senate to consider he treaty the latter part of the week, and there ia a probability that the Bering ea bill will be considered as of sufficient mportance to call for prompt action, fhere will be little difficulty in securing an understanding whereby those ques- ions can be taken up for temporary dis- )lacemont of tho tariff if expediency ihould be considered important. The pension and fortification appropriations ire also on the calendar and can bo cou- eidored at any time, but thoy will not be pressed for the present. Tho tariff bill will bo tho order after 3 o'clock each day of the week or until tho morning business shall bo disposed of and there will be two hours each day for ;ho consideration of miscellaneous questions which properly belong to that hour, iovonil amendments to tho tariff bill will be offered by tho committee on anunce, after which tho Bpeuking will begin, in which Senator Voorhoes, an chairman of tho finance committtio, will load ott. IIo will bo replied to by Senator Allison, but beyond these speeches it is not known in what order BanutorH will bo Iwurd. It ia quite likely that Senators MePherson and Hill, on tho Democratic side, will Bpuuk early in the week, and it in known that on the Republican eido of tho chamber Senators llalu, Lodge, Culloui, Hour, liuwley, Monil and Mitchell (Or.) uro prepared to speak, but it iu not probable that even u majority of these can bo hoard during the present week. Indeed, if tho speeches ehould pvovu long, txa inmiy of them will, U is likely that for tho present not more than one will l>u hoard in u day. Senator Peffer is also oxpcctod to wpeuk oil (ho tariff bill this week or next. An uxuitiug \vook IB promised in the house. The struggle over Iho O'Nuill- Joy election CUBO is still ou.
