IN THE GARDEN. Baud llocB of Various Slinpes—A Portabl* llotisc For Tools and Seeds. While trying nil the while to make the •wheel hoe take the place of the hand hoe in every possible case, wo have not yet learned to dispense entirely with the latter. But in order to do good work We need good hoes, united to tho special purpose or to the individual preferences or peculiarities of tho user. >Iu the first place, let us understand, writes T. Qrei- HOE TRANSFORMATIONS. ner in American Gardening, that it is waste of time and effort to nee a clumsy or dull, woruont hoe, such as is shown at D. The profitable hoe is shown at A. It is a new and sharp one, bent at the right angle and fastened to a light but strong and elastic handle. Keep the blade bright and sharp, and you will find pleasure in its use. A reader In Michigan, J. F. Gillett, suggests transformation B. The whole upper .part of the blade is out'away, as shown. Any one can do that with a hammer and cold chisel. He says that he uses the hoe, thus remodeled, for every purpose that a hoe is used, except for tilling and covering seeds. Some gardeners would prefer transformation C, especially for weeding in rows of vegetables, for which purpose the sharp points come very handy. An old, wornont hoe, D, while a most useless and aggravating thing in this shape, can easily be turned into on excellent weeding hoe by cutting down to the shape as appearing in E or as in F. Mr. Greiner always keeps a number of old hoes, thus transformed, on hand, and they serve an excellent purpose for stirring the soil and cutting out weeds among closely planted vegetables, especially among onions grown on the new plan. Webb Dounell, in the journal already quoted, gives an illustrated description of a tool and seed house about which he says: If one's garden is at all removed from his stable or toolhouse, he is pretty sure to find the going back and forth from the garden to these buildings to get a fork or a rake, or some other tool that he has forgotten to take garden- ward with him, to be something of a burden. Then there is running back and forth for seeds, and ranch trouble to return these articles to a safe place When night comes. A small, portable tool and seed house will bo found an exceedingly convenient attachment to a garden, and this can be made ornamental at small expense, especially if it be located in the midst of some small shrubbery. In such a house, square in shape, with a dishing roof, the sides being of matched boarding, planed and painted, all the small tools used in the garden HAYMAKING.

Helpful Hints on Curing Clover. As to what stage of maturity hay should be cut, that will depend upon tho kind of hay and whnt we intend to do with it. If timothy, and to bo fed on the form mainly to milk cows and young stock, it should be out much greener than when intended for baling and shipment. If for home use, the cutting should begin as soon as it is fully headed. If you have a large amount to out, don't wait for the latest heads to come out. Then some of it will be too old to be at its best before you get done. Thus writes o Wisconsin correspondent to Prairie Former. He says: Keep your early and late cutting separate, and it nny is to be sold be sure that it is the last cut. But there is a little more to this cutting question. The early cut with the fine aftermath that will follow Will together furnish more and a good deal better food than will the later cut that will give but little second growth. Another advantage of early cutting is that your meadow will be in a good deal better condition to stand the winter, there being much less risk from winter killing. One thing more about timothy hay. It is not a profitable crop for the average farmer to raise. He can raise other fodder for his own use that is better and cheaper. The farmer that lives near a large town where he can load his hay on the wagon and go in and sell it, with no expense save his labor, is all right. But if he has to go to the expense of baling and of paying the railroad charges and the somewhat uncertain charges of the middlemen he had better raise something else and feed it at home, and in that way improve his farm instead of exhausting it by selling the crop off of it. Then comes the question, What kind of fodder shall we raise? I answer, corn or elover. The next consideration is cutting and curing it ready for the barn. I say barn, for clover hay never ought to be stacked unless we have something to cover it. The waste is too great. Never cut it when it is wet either with dew or rain. By letting the foreign moisture dry off in its natural position yon will save time and have much better hay. At what stage of maturity shall wo commence the cutting? The same rule will apply to the clover as to timothy—only more so—for the clover loses in feeding value faster than timothy as the seed approaches maturity. The best way to save a crop of clover for fodder is to put it in the' silo, but comparatively few farmers have a silo. The next best way is to cut, on a sunny day, in the morning as soon as the dew is off, as muoh as your help can put in cocks from 3 in the afternoon till the dew begins to fall in the evening. Put it up and cover it with hay caps made from cotton cloth. Let it stand three or four days and heat and sweat, and then open a little and let it air for two or three hours and put in the barn. In getting this ready for. cocking ' the cutting should be done by 11 o'clock and the team be put immediately to the tedder —or before the cutting is done, if you have two teams—so as to stir tho whole up with the tedder before dinner. After dinner, if it is not wilted enough to suit you, go over it again before yon commence raking. Those who have not tried it before will be surprised at the results, and those that have used the tedder will confirm what I say. Just here I want to say a little more about the tedder as an implement for haymaking. I consider it indispensable for making tho best clover hay at the least cost. It is second only to the mower and possibly to the horse rake. It reduces by almost one- half tho risk of haying the clover hay damaged by wet weather, for it can be got ready for the barn in' about one- half the time that it cab by the old process, and if wo have the misfortune to have hay get wet while we are putting it in tho barn the tedder should bo used on it as soon as possible, shaking out the water instead of waiting for it to dry out. The points to bo remembered are early cutting, dry cutting, use of tedder and proper Ktoriug. Hlaok Minorca*.

Rrtllroad Officials CliAflng Under the embargo on Iluslnnsi—Federal Troops Ordered Out In Colorado and California Mrs. Stanford Royally Treated—Striker' Trying to Arbitrate at St. Louli. CHICAGO, July 3.—The regular troops at Fort Sheridan have been ordered to move. Their destination is ttot known at present, but is supposed to be Blue Island. CHICAGO, July 8.—Monday's developments in the great Pullman-American Railway union strike were prolific in sensationalism, the principal theater of action being in Chicago and adjacent suburbs. Wild rumors were rife when it was announced that orders have been issued for the Second regiment to pro> ceed at once to Blue Island, 18 miles out. Extra editions of all evening papers, with warlike headlines, were eagerly scanned by thousands of anxious people. This report proved later to be unfounded. The first serious clash occurred when 200 deputy United States marshals were surrounded at Blue Island by 2,000 strikers, who openly defied federal authority. Weapons were drawn on both sides and Deputy Mar- BhalJohn A. Logan was painfully cut with a knife, but when a bloody conflict seemed imminent the deputies re- ired to their barrack cars to await're- nforcements, leaving the strikers masters of the situation. Locked Hortu With the Authorities. In the evening an injunction from the Jnited States court was read and bul- etined. The authority of the court was ipenly derided and after a few minutes quiet the riotous spirit of the strikers reasserted itself. At midnight reports ot other disorders were current, it being itated that the strikers were tearing lown the bulletin mandate of the court. rearing to precipitate bloodshed the Rock Island decided after its 8:30 express had been gotten through ( not to nake any effort to move trains. The strikers have now locked horns with the tate and federal authorities. The railroad officials are chafing under the con- inned embargo on business. The des- terate condition of their late 'employes, letermined not to work themselves no w allow others to do so. is evidenced by he flood of reports of individual conflicts lere -and there coming from all over the city. • Number of Train* Derailed. A number of trains have been, derailed by misplaced switches. A Panhandle >assenger train was partly ditched at Cinzie and Canal streets but was not seriously delayed. The strikers are steal- ng brasses from'the axle boxes of cars, and in some instances dropping coupling nns into the cross head guides of the lo- lomotives,' causing the destruction of cylinder heads. • , Tons of fruit, vegetables, ice, meat* and other perishable goods stand in the cars under a boiling sun, no one caring or daring to move it to its destination. Dumb animals crowded into stock cars suffer thirst and hunger, and prices of vegetables and fruits are going up. District Attorney Milchriat, when asked if troops had yet been ordered out 'rom Fort Sheridan, said: "I do not ;hink they will be called out until the order of the courts has been violated and ;ho judges recommend that such a measure being taken to upheld the dignity of ;ho court and justice. Unless the trouble a brought to an end soon, it is my opinion the strike will terminate in bloodshed." The firemen on the Lake Street Elevated road decided they would strike to assist the A. R. IT. The specific cause of the strike is that the elevated road received some coal delivered by the Panhandle, boycotted by the A. ft. U. Tolegmplier* Nut Taking Part. M. V. Powell, grand chief of the Order of Railway Telegraphers, said: ''We are not taking any part in the strike. We are affiliated with the other railroad brotherhoods and will be guided by any action taken by the federation, We cannot afford to come into a strike which was ordered without consultation with the other railroad organizations. It would have been better all around bud Mr. Debs and his people, before ordering the strike, consulted with us, then he would liave had some claim upon us, but it is now presumptuous for him to ask us to strike at his bidding."

Committee »l St, Loills Met ft Cool Reception From the Merchants' Eiclmnte. ST. Louis, July 3,— The status of the railroad strike here Monday evening was that of almost complete interruption of freight traffic, while passenger trains made up by yardmasters and a numbei of terminal association switchmen who had returned to work were moving practically on time. On both sides of the river all switchmen have struck except those of the Wabash and the St. Louis, Keokuk and Northwestern. In all about 1,500 men have gone out in all the yards, and perhaps 2,000 more have been thrown out in unskilled lines of labor by the defection of the switchmen and their allies. The only addition to the ranks of the strikers Monday were the freight brakemen of the St. Louis division of the Louisville and Nashville, who have laid up that division. The managers of the lines entering St. Louis continue theit preparations to fight the strike, and declare they will soon be in good shape again. United States District Attorney Clapton received instructions from Attorney General Olney to see that there is no interference with mail trains here. In accordance with this order, United State! Marshal Lynch has stationed deputies at the Union depot to protect trains and arrest all persons offering interference. A committee of strikers called or Mayor Walbridge to secure his good offices in the direction of arbitration oi the strike. The mayor agreed to act with others that might Deselected with the assent of all interested parties. The committee then called on the directors of the Merchants' exchange, but they wen received very coolly. Later the committee were informed by letter from the Merchants' exchange that the striken had made such threats that they stood in the light »f lawbreakers and therefore the 'directors declined to act as arbitrators. _ TREATED MRS. STANFORD ROYALLY. Delegation of Striken Transferred Her to Another Car M> She Could Be»oh Borne. DUNSMUIR, Cal., July ».— A felicitous incident over the great strike on the Southern Pacific system was witnessed here Monday. Mrs. Jane Stanford, widow of the late Leland Stanford, had been for two days stranded in her private car north of here. The burning of a • trestle on Sunday made it impossible f ot her car to proceed. A delegation of the striking A. R. U. men proceeded to bet car with carriages, brought her to this city and put her on . board another car that the men had decked in bright colors with flags and bunting. A brass band headed the party. While a locomotive was being coupled to the cars Mrs. Stanford thanked the men and assured them that were her husband living the present trouble on the Southern Pacific would not have arisen. "Would this offer be made to Mr. Huntington?" asked Mrs. Stanford. "No; Mr. Hnntington would not be allowed to even walk on this road," was the answer by the spokesman for the strikers. When the car was pulled out of Dunsmuir a guard of strikers went along to see that it should not fall into the hands of the company's officials. Coal Famine Threatened In Dearer, DENVER, July 8. — The strike is in the hands of a general committee composed of representatives of every department. The shops of both the Santa Fe and. the Denver and Rio Grande uro working with full forces. The Rio Grmido m<>n •till refuse to Strike. Potatoes HIM selling at $4 per 100 pounds. Not more than 200 tons of coal iu in the hamh of dealers, and if the strike lout* two days longer the cable lines will have to stop running. The electric line has a three months' supply on band. Uncle Bam** Hen Ht Trinidad. TRINIDAD, Colo., July 8.— The United States troops arrived here Monday night, Slow progress was made, because every bridge and switch was examined before the train was permitted to cross. The arrival of the troops was A surprise to the strikers, as they had cut the wires, The only occurrence in the way of a disturbance was an attempt to pull the fire man from the engine, whereupon the engineer and fireman were taken to camp under escort. _ Unable to Handle the Striken. SANTA PK, N. M., July 8,— The United States marshal has telegraphed for a least 200 United States troops. It is ex pectod the troops will be ordered to Raton.
