flF '"( THE BUSH LIMA BEANS. Hush Forms of the Fnvorllo Llinns Hereto fqro Known Only 03 Polo Bcnus. The last decade of the nineteenth century •will long bo remembered in the history of the American seed trade, in that it hns witnessed the general introduction of bush forms of the favorite Limas, pr»- THE FOUR BUSH LIMAS. vionsly kno\Yii only as pole beans. In order to properly present the four varieties together, an illustration made of ripe beans, averaging natural size, is here reproduced from Burpee's Farm Annual. Burpee's Bush Lima originated in Pennsylvania and is conceded to be a perfect bush form of the true large •white Lima. It is an immense yielder, each bush bearing from 50 to 200 of the handsome largo pods, well filled with large beans, which are identical ill size and flavor to tno well known large pole T.imHg. By the introduction_of this most valuable novelty, the largest and best Lima beans can now be raised in quantity at small cost, without tho expense and labor attached to the use of poles. Henderson's Bush Lima appears to have originated simultaneously in several southern states. It is an early and prolific true bush form of tho sieva, small Lima or "butter beans." While the beans are small they are ready for the table earlier than the largo Limas, and the little pods, growing in clusters, are plentiful. The compact dwarf bushes are of hardy growth and very prolific, bearing continuously until the end of the season. Each bush generally matures from 40 to 80 pods, while under extra cultivation specimen plants have been raised which bore many more. Kurnerle, or Dreer's Bush Lima, orig- iifeted in northern New Jersey and produces in bush form the luscious, fat potato Limas for which tho Dreer's or Challenger Pole Lima is noted. Tho bushes grow from 1 >^ to 2 feet high, of vigorous growth and quite prolific. Jackson's Wonder originated in Georgia and is highly esteemed in the south. In The Farm Annual already quoted from it is told that this variety, as test- HENDERSON'S BUSII LIMA. cd in tho east, is a prolific strain of the Speckled Siovu, or small Lima, of established bush character and real merit, resembling Henderson's Bush Lima, but larger in size of beans, with better filled pods. It is also moro easily shelled than tho Henderson Lima. lu tho first cut is shown tho relative sizes of (1) Burpee's Bush Lima, (2) Henderson's Bush Lima, (8) Dreor's Bush Lima, (4) Jackson's Wonder. In •the second cut is illustrated tllo opou • pod of Henderson's Bush Lima, In tho Alfulfu lle£lon. There is a very largo area of southwestern Kansas in tho Arkansas valley where u successful agriculture has boon developed with alfalfa as tho principal crop. This agriculture is not of tho single crop sort, but is as comprehensive and as diversified as that of any portion of tho state. Alfalfa as a feed is particularly suited for tho building up of boiio and muscle in young and growing stock as well as for tho production of milk, lied Kaffir and Jerusalem corn are almost certain crops in this section and furnish the grains necessary in fattening early. Upon a knowledge of those two facts, says The Industrialist, there has grown an important stock raising industry which has its chief merit possibly in the quality of young stock that caja here bo produced for shipment to feeders iia tho corn bolt. ' A peculiarity of this region lies iu • tbo fact that throughout this groat vul- by water la unlimited quantities can bo 'fflttiid at a depth which nowhere exceeds JO or 18 foot below tho surface. By the aid of wind and other power any quantity of water for irrigation purposes may be pumped at u vory small cost.

How to Avoid tlnnoccssnr.v long Through the Use of Infertile Eggs. A New Jersey farmer whoso hatching is done almost entirely by homemade incubators tells in a communication to Rural New Yorker his methods of testing eggs. He writes: My "egg tester" is on oblong box, 15 inches long by 0 inches square, inside measurement. Tho bottom should be 8 inches and the top 0 inches square. Three-quarter inch pine is about right. Through the top cut a 8 inch hole foi ventilation of lamp. Makes sides, back and door of any light material; one-hali inch is thick enough. Near the bottom iu each side bore two three-quarter inch holes, also leave a three-quarter inch space at the bottom of the door. These, with the hole in the top piece, will give sufficient ventilation to the lamp. In the center of the door, so as to come opposite tho flame of the lamp you expect to use, cut a hole 2 inches in diameter. Over this tack a washerlike piece cut from the leg of an old rubber boot. This rubber piece should have a 1^ inch hole cut through it and is to servo as a cushion to prevent breaking the eggs while testing. Put a pair of light hinges on the left, a small closet hook on the right side of the door, paint the inside of tho tester black, aud you are ready for work. Of course when the eggs are placed in the incubator or under the hens it is impossible to know whether they are fertile or not. I make my first test in the evening of tho seventh day of inou- A HOMEMADE EGO TESTER. bation. The tester should be placed so that tho flame- of the lamp through the testing hole is about opposite the operator's eyes. Pass the eggs one by one before the flame, pressing gently against the rubber cushion so that all the light must pass through the egg. \ A fertile egg will show a clouded center slightly larger than the yolk. An infertile' egg is perfectly clear and will look jexactly like a new laid egg. A few eggs may bo doubtful, and it is best to return them to the incubator. On the fourteenth day I make a second test. By this time fertile, or live (jggs, will bo almost or entirely opaque, and the infertile and those containing dead germs may bo easily distinguished even by tho novice. These tests should be made quickly to avoid chilling the eggs. All the light desired while testing will bo given by the lamp in tho tester. When hatching with hens, it is best to sot five or six hens at the same time. At tho end of the week when tho test is made the fertile eggs may bo given to three or four of the hens and tho other hens bo given a now lot of ogga One test is all that I make with bens, The Useful Windmill. A writer in Field and Farm has figured out that a 12 foot geared steel windmill furnishes power in abundance for the following work: By means of lever arms aud reciprocating wires two pumps are driven distant 75 and 800 feet respectively. The latter always gives a supply of pure water, indispensable for dairy cattle and desirable for any stock. A shaft of gas pipe carries the power for churning to a cellar CO feet distant. A belt which can bo readily thrown on runs the grindstone. Inside of the millhouse inclosing the lower portion of tho tower are other bolts connecting with a corusheller and a corn elevator, which carries the shelled corn up out of tho way. A grinder attached direct to the driving shaft is capable of grinding 14 bushels of corn an hour and has an automatic feed. Fine meal and graham flour can both bo ground for house use, and a fresh article is insured. Tho windmill is a general utility machine and should bo used as such. Notts of Local Intercut. Seed growing for commercial' purposes is increasing in tho west, Tho Prairie Farmer says that the Jerusalem artichoke has proved a most excellent crop for hogs to root among iu tho autumn and early spring when tho ground is not frozen. They contain moro nutriment than potatoes aud are cooling to tho digestive organs. Freight inducements are being freely offered, according to a western authority, to attract business from commercial centers of the wont to the seaboard. Tho Rural New Yorker says—and it is authority on potatoes—"Now, western farmer, don't you use a fertilizer on your potatoes that contains less than 0 per cent of potash. Don't you do it, no matter what they may try to sell you." Tho growing of clover sood in northern Colorado in becoming a special industry. Those who have been trying awuloBS bromo grass for the nouirrigated west aro of the opinion that it is the bent pasture grass yot discovered for tho arid re- giou. Alfalfa will give a larger amount of good forage to the ivcro than auy other crop that can bo raised. It lias shown itself to be especially adapted to the arid region and to cultivation by irrigation. Colorado is tho adopted homo of the red spider, and it is ouo pf tho worst outdoor pests. It may usually be dislodged by spraying the under side of the loavou with cold water. Tho fanners of tho Arkansas valley who have grown sweet potatoes have uo reason to complain.

A CALIFORIM1A BLAZE. the City of Snntn Crnr, Visited by n S250, OOO Fire. SANTA CRUZ, Cnl., April 10.— A great conflagration reduced to ashes 24 buildings in the heart of the city, and caused a loss of ov-* $2bO,000, with less than $100, OOU insurance. One block reduced to ashes contained the finest buildings in the city, niicl was occupied by lawyers, bankers and merchants. The fire was of incendiary origin. The firemen could not obtain a supply of water from the hydrants. The city's mains had broken Saturday afternoon, and the water had been shut off at the reservoir, three miles from town. Private hydrants were soon tapped, but the force was not sufficient to do any work and it was not until 12 o'clock that the city's mains were once more opened. The \vatei supply was then sufficient, but as Santa Cruz had not a fire engine to force the water through the hose, the streams were weak and ineffectual, A northwest wind was blowing and this helped to madden the flames. The fire burned with great rapidity and flames from the buildings threw showers of sparks on the dome of the city courthouse, which BOOH ignited and burned to the ground, nothing being left but the four walls to mark the place where the structure stood, Chinatown, which had DO shanties of very inflammable materials, caught and burned like tinder. The Chinamen saved some of their effects, but nearly all of their belongings were consumed. AN AFFLICTED FAMILY. A Kansas Judge In Jail and - Dig Wife nuil Daughter Insane. KANSAS CITY, April lli. — Judge Lyons, one of the St. Glair county judges in jail for contempt of court t'or refusing to levy an assessment ordered by the United States district court, Saturday night became violent and made all sorts of threats against the jail authorities. He became so obstreperous that the jailer told him unless he behaved he would have to put him in a dungeon. The judge was suffering from neuralgia and called for a physician to relieve the pain, but no one could be obtained. It is said that the judge is going insane. His predecessor in oflice, Judge 1 Copsnhaven, is now, on his deathbed, and his wife and a daughter are insane from the shock of his imprisonment. A Scoundrelly Act. LAWRENCE, Kan., April 10.— During the progress of a banquet which was tendered the senior class of the High school by the middle class Saturday evening. some miscreants succeeded in getting a quantity of bromic acid into the hall, nearly suffocating the young people in attendance. Some were overcoma by nauseating odor and are still ill. Suspicion points strongly to a member of the junior class of tho High school mid a student of the university pharmacy school. The board of education will thoroughly investigate and punish the oifenders if caught. Governor Mltclioll Suys NV). JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 10. — T. E. T.

A PECULIAR STATE OF AFFAIRS, Chief Clark Sayi the Strikers Will Re- celre No Recognition From the Peeler atetl Organizations, and Snrgent Says Firemen Who Have Violated Brotherhood Laws Will lie Expelled. ST, PAUL, April If.,—The strike on the Great Northern railway is gradually working east, having taken in. Grand Forks, N. D., and if not soon settled will probably reach this end of the line in about two or three days. It Is developing a peculiar state of affairs. The strike was ordered by the American Railway union and is being more actively antagonized by the railway employs' brotherhoods than by the railroad company itself, There can be no doubt that the individuals of the various brotherhoods are privately somewhat dissatisfied, but they recently accepted the revised schedules and are standing by their agreement with tlie company. A meeting Sunday afternoon of the local organization of tho engineers took no official notice of the strike, but at the close of the meeting the secretary told an Associated Press representative that they were opposed to the strike, and any engineer who countenances or in any way assists the strikers will do so at his peril. The following, addressed to the president of the Great Northern railway, has been received here: "If firemen in your employ, who are members of the brother- erhood, have quit work in the present strike, they have violated the laws of the organization and will be expelled. They will have no support from the organization or be sustained by the federal committee. We propose to stand by all agreements that have been made and signed by authorized committees. You are at liberty to act accordingly. F. P. Sargent," The following is a copy of a message sent by E. E. Clark, grand chief of the railway conductors, to the local secretary at Spokane Falls, with directions to make such use of it as he chose: "Strike on the Great Northern will receive no recognition or support from me or from federated organizations. Our members are to comply strictly with our laws and to perform their proper and right duties, [f any participate in a strike they must abide by the consequences, which are well known." As far as can be learned, the road is tied up over about 1,500 miles of its system, the number of men involved being much greater than the number of actual strikers. So long as the strikers can pi-event the making up of trains, the train crews, although willing to run trains, are helpless. At a number of points along the line the citizens have openly espoused the cause of the strikers. It is not thought any lawlessness will be permitted at any point. A Devil's Lake special says the strikers have prevented any movement of the trains from that point for 48 hours. The company, with the help of the crew of the train that was stopped there Saturday, tried to make up a train for the east, but was prevented by the strikers. They will allow the baggage car and the mail cars to proceed, but forcibly prevent the Coupling of any passenger trains. The baggage car is exempt from interference, as it has mail matter in it. The Cuaciulo Division. SEATTLE, Wash., April 10.—TheGre&t Northern railroad strike has extended over tho Cos cade division and the coast lines and the whole system IB laid up from-Minot to Seattle and from Seattle to New Westminister. Hardly a wheel is turning nor a telegraph wire ticking over 2,000 miles of lino. Tho strike was ordered with such secrecy and suddenness that an hour before it was to begin the officials had not a suspicion that it was to happen. When the time came to make up the eostbound passenger train tho mail and baggage car was set in front instead of at tho rear aud the car was not coupled to the roar of tho train. Then orders were given for tho train to go out, the engineer refusing to take out moro than tho mail car. Superintendent Copelund said that the whole train or iiothinK-would go oat and after waiting for nearly an hour to givo him an opportunity to reconsider, the crow wont home and the officials followed suit. Tho strike is complete on the west end, and all branches of tho Borvioo are participating. Wuitluif For Itoun.
