Dr. R. H. McKlm of .Washington to tne new nisn onrlc There was an echo of last night's lively session of the Board of Missions avhen- the House of Deputies of the l:plscopal convention met this morning, Jtet..GOrge.C.; Thomas of Pennsyl vania moved that when the Board of Missions -sit this evening it be with closed doors. Gov. Prince of New Mex- ico raised the point of order that the two houses had nothing to do with the Board of Missions, which was an inde-pendent body and could not be die-tated to. Dean Hoffman reported that dally sessions of the commission were being held and a report would be presented at the earliest possible moment, probably Monday. The dean added that the com mission, he thought, did not expect tne absolute adoption of a new constitution at this session, but hoped to get the matter In such shape that it might be finally disposed of at the next convention.- Dr. Lindsay was willing to make Monday the limit. C . In the discussion that ensued Dr. McKlm of Washington compared the new constitution o, Jonah and wittily advised that it would be better for the convention and better for the constitution to cast it overboard. "What have we accomplished in a week's discussion?" he asked. "We have pluralized a" word and mangled a definition of the vhurch," whereat there was great laughter. ' The resolution as amended was then adopted. Sec. 4 waa then taken up and Judge Bennett's substitute for the five sections was laid on the table. 1 - ' The Conference Committee reported that It had recommended thai five bishops recede-from their opposition to the new diocese of Marquette in Northern Michigan. The Conference Committee, named consists of Bishop Potter of. New York, Bishop Nichols of California,- Bishop -- Gailer of Tennessee, Rev. Dr. Perkins of Kentucky, Robert T. Paine of Massachusetts, and Frank H.. Miller of Georgia. Chairman Dix coincided with this view and ruled the resolution out. ; Rev. Dr. Henry Jones of Central Pennsylvania moved that the convention adjourn on October 18 and the resolution was referred to the Committee on Unfinished Business. " The trouble of last night then came up again in the shape of a resolution of Rev. P. P. Davenport of Tennessee defining a quorum of the Board of Missions. The resolution provided that a majority of all the members would be necessary to do business and that the votes should be taken by dioceses. Dr. Dix stated that he had been In error In ruling out the resolution of Rev. Thomas and its mover up again. He' thought after reading the headlines and other statements In the morning papers there - was abundant reason for the executive session being private, but the motion was lost by 113? nays to 125 yeas. Dr." Fairbanks of Florida wanted all outsiders excluded from the body of the : house at tonight's session, but he was voted down. -'A message from the House of Bishops Announced the selection of Louisville as the next convention city an dasked for ,a conference, to which the deputies assented.

Both the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops agreed on Washlng-ftflB .as the place for holding the next .cpnvenjion, and one fight of the convention Is settled. V, , The House of Deputies this afternoon reversed some of Its former actions when it got,down to votingby dioceses. A ma-jorRy-of the individuals la the convention did not necessarily rule then and the laity had more show than during the previous debates. The voting was all on the. question of concurring with the bishops on the first six sections of art I. The first two were concurred In, except that the word "synod" was 'changed to "convention" in designating the triennial meeting. The fight came on the third section, which contained he term "primate." This section was changed by eliminating the objectionable clause. Tha vote to concur failed to carry because the laity and clergy did not concur, a majority of each being required. Considerable time was spent in discussing the question of allowing representatives of churches in foreign countries to vote in the convention. It was decided, after a long argument, that they should not have the right but the section was not finally adopted .The House of Bishops this afternoon decided to elect another bishop - to Japan, to be known as the of Tokio. The election will wiir wt week. . The bishops have finished their discussion of the revised constitution They laid the declaration on the table -This evening the Board of Missions held another meeting to discuss the Alaskan question, and by a vote of 161 to 37 decided to ask the House of Bishops . to elect a bishop to Alaska. The debate was not as sultry as last night, but there were some spicy speeches. Bishop Neely made another fight against Alaska, but he apologized for many of the things he had said about Missionary Chapman last night. Many cf the r prominent bishops of the convention took part In the debate, and it was not . .till a late hour when the matter was v decided.

"(Albany State:) Mrs. Gray Canfleld, in a London letter, gives an account of Lady Irving, whom she visited at her home, a pretty little cottage near the British capital Lady Irving is ' described as a tall, slender, serious-faced woman of delightful manners, modest and retiring, and shrinking from publicity. Extracts from the letter give an insight into Lady Irvlng's character: "Before I left I had found out that Lady Irving has a great admiration for her talented husband, who provides for her with much liberality, her annuity being sufficient to support her in luxury and enable her to provide for relatives and entertain such friends as she aees fit He is the cleverest of men, she declared enthusiastically. But their Uvea actually are far apart, as Lady Irving shrinks unspeakably from tha publicity of, Sir Henry's life, . and the latter would die in the confines of the little Peiham road cottage, with its simplicity,, its roBes and ite quiet. "The whole cottage could be placed easily in the private suites of rooms of his town house. 'I have many friends,', said she, 'for my life, though a quiet one, la only so in comparison. I receive upward to ten callers a day, and always drive out in the afternoon, accompanied by one of my sons. ' They are men; now, and the eldest has taken to the stage. Do I approve? That I am not willing to answer. If, as a profession, ft -brings honor," wealth, distinction and happiness, it is not for a weak-voiced woman to clamor against It ' Why do not I go into the vortex of public life and allow myself to become accomstomed to it?

The gentleman went East in the Interest of the exchanges on the 1st of January last the resident agent, in Chicago, and with general supervision of aJl brokers of the exchanges-east of the Missouri River. This naturally put him In a position: to Judge intelligently regarding all markets of the United States and, their consumption of California oranges.' On his arrival in Chicago Mr. Piatt found a considerable prejudice existing in the minds of many fruit-dealers regarding the exchange, which they denominated a trust or combination gotten up for the purpose of demanding extortionate prices for the fruit and of interfering with the trade which they had established. Mr. . Piatt . assured, them that the exchanges were not a trust in the obnoxious sense of such institutions; that it was not a combination Intended to force unreasonable value, but that it was simply an organization of the producers of Southern California formed for mutual protection and for the better and more economical handling of the "orange and lemon crop; that It was the intention of the exchanges to utilize, so far as possible, the legitimate wholesale fruit-dealers of the country; to Work in harmony with them, not as competitors, but as those engaged Jn a common business. , He had the satisfaction before leaving Chicago of obtaining the cordial and most hearty support of the entire fruit trade, and today Mr. Piatt says.that the exchanges possess the good will and hearty support and patronage of the best-and most reliable fruit-dealers all over the United States and especially in the heavy trade centers. - ' . Mr. Piatt regards the work of the exchanges during the past year as being, in the main,- eminently successful, jfvll hfgh-grade fruit was marketed successfully and with very satisfactory profits to the producers. In some cases, it Is true, the inflated ideas of many were not attained. After the freeze in Florida had -destroyed the entire crop of that State late in December last, many of our fruit-growers got very exalted ideas as to the value of- the California orange crop, and it was in many cases difficult to realize .their anticipations. A vafiety of causes conspired against us in this respect, which may be briefly enumerated as follows: First The excessive .Importations of Mediterranean fruit by the importers of the Atlantic seaboard. These men made no correct allowance for the 8000 cars of California oranges that were to flhd their market in the United States, but jumped at the conclusion that because the Florida crop was destroyed the entire supply of the country must be drawn from the Mediterranean, and they acted accordingly, very much to their own discomfiture, as was proved later. They flooded the. country with cheap oranges from Spain and Italy, which were sold during the months of February. March and April at prices ransrlng from 75 cents to $1.75 per box In New York, with a freight of about 30 cents to Chicago and other interior points. The quality of this fruit was about equal to our ordinary seedlings and was of course thrown in direct competition with them. . . . .. . Second The general financial stringency all over the country operated very much against the purchase of or-anires and othnr fruit. . Third From the middle ot Janu- flrv until about tha flrot nf . v. . - '.-, L lie: coldest weather known in twelve years was experienced, ana during nearly all of this time no oranges could be handled, and it was necessary to allow them to remain In the cars, which were run into roundhouses and otherwise protected by the railroad companies.

Among these would be. the more regular distribution of the crop throughout the Eastern markets. The country would be divided into various districts, each under the control of a competent man who would report . to . the. exchanges from time to time the quantity of fruit his market could handle at a profit. In this way, while each market would be supplied with all it could handle, no market would be glutted with exchange fruit. A more regular basis of value would be established, and, as the fruit Would' be sold largely for cash, more prompt returns would be made to the grower. In the next place, Mr. Piatt pointed out that under the new plan the drop of oranges would be moved in a more regular and systematic manner, a regular pro rata system of shipments being made from every one of the forty or more associations in the different exchanges. By this means more economy would be possible in the picking and handling and no fruit need be left on the trees longer than was good .for it, or necessary to move the entire - crop: Under the old system of marketing the fruit we were dependent largely upon the will and pleasure of purchasers. They bought fruit of us when they thought it might be profitable to them, and, as a natural result, the most of them would send in their orders about the same time; that is to say, yrhenever the. market. would be bare, -the natural result Qf which was the frequent glutting of markets, the rejection of cars( law suits or the allowing of rebates, all of which would be avoided under the new system. Under the old plan, if, the market went up,; after. an order was placed, the producer got no. advantage. If the market went down,, cars were thrown on his hands, contracts cancelled, ,and more or less loss unavoidable. Under the Improved system the grower takes no greater chancesjhan before In any respect, .and, on the contrary, in case of an advance in the market, the advantage and profit are his. ' . , . . .... . ' In traveling about the country in the last two or three weeks, In company of other representatives of the executive board, Mr. Platt found the f rult-growers generally well' pleased with the Workings of. the exchanges' and satisfied with the new plan proposed. As to the prospect for. the coming season it seemed to be most hopeful and encouraging, A year ago at this time it was known that Florida had .nearly six million .boxes of. oranges;, over two million were marketed before the freeze. Today the crop is estimated at about one hun dred and fifty thousand boxes.- The Mexican crop this year , will probably reach in all about four hundred and fifty carloads, or perhaps a trifle In excess of the -Florida crop. The 'Jamaica croD will , . reach one hun dred and fifty thousand boxes. Nearly an me rruit aDove mentioned will be marketed before the first of January, so ; that -practically the competition against California oranges is confined to the Mediterranean fruit. Last year, ln.Aprll and later, the competition from this source was met by considerable shipment from California, which was placed In charge of Thomas Morehouse, who went to the Atlantic seaboard and succeeded In asserting -our right ; to a share of that, trade. This year It Is proposed, also to utilize the far Eastern markets to such an extent as may be necessary for. the protection of - the dustry. Modern Method with Corn Fodder. (Pacific Rural Press:) In some parts of California much use Is made ot eorn fodderitoiDtat is chiefly -handled in bld-fashioned waya Th following shdWs machine, cutting and shredding, which seem to, have much r advantage. A' speaker at an Iowa farmers' institute gave the account in these words: In 1893 I purchased a eorn harvester, believing they were better than the corn knife. I cut .twenty-Aye acres and put twelve hills square in a shock. We cut the fifth and sixth rows first. When we had cut twelve hills we stepped off behind the machine and set our fodder together, and one of us held It while the other; 41ed the. top with a twine string, and after we Jhad cut through to the end of the row we cut around until the. row of shocks was finished, - and then cut another in a like manner, etc, Toward evening we would stop cutting and tie the shocks already cut with binding twine. One hundred shocks, we thought, was a day's work. I , hullt a platform 10x16 feet on my truck wagon to haul It in with, then took the sulky plow wheels and built a derrick on them with a lever to hoist the shocks on the wagon. We tied this derrick behind the wagon. We used the lever part for the time, on one side of the wagon and then on the other. I find the derrick works better with the shocks eighteen feet square than they do thirteen feet square. I secured a tousker and shredder and by this mans I husked my corn and stacked my fodder. , The live stock eat this shredded fodder up clean. The shredder was run by horse-power. My neighbor used a threshing machine with engine and made better time, but had more help I think the shredder is the best, as it leaves the corn on the ear instead of shelling it, . ... . - . "With two .years, experience, and results, I shall use corn fodder Instead of hay; it is cheaper and better feed. I think the barn Is the place to put the fodder, but it must be well cured or It will heat.: It will keep well In the stack If properly topped out with wild hav or some material .that wIU turn rain The cost to shred.and husk the corn is about $1 per acre. ; Venetian Iron Work. (Pittsburgh Dispatch:) Venetianiron-work is becoming popular again for the decoration of the country house and many beautiful designs, with and without the colored glass, ar made In the way of brackets, stands, lamps, match-holders and flower-holders. The latest in this line, however is tire nome-maae article. A kit of tool nicely put in a box, and strips of the thin iron used for the work, come already prepared for the amateur and many women make their own brackets and bric-a-brac. The strips of flat iron come in somewhat convenient sizes, and it Is easily bent into the curves and angles necessary for making lamps and brackets The tools consist chiefly of a small riveting hammer, a steel-pointed borer or .drill, a package of copper tacks, JjOTELS Resorts C Taebtlng.

Thei three corners of the bracket are fastened together by tha copper tacks. A hole is punched through : the two pieces of iron, and the copper tack driven through them. Then with the nippers the point ot the tack is cut-off, and, by placing it on a hard substance, a few sharp blows with the .hammer on the head of the tack will rivet the Iron securely together. The fancy wire can' 'bo'"' passed through' holes made In the strips' of iron, or "riveted on the same as described for the framework. Another simple article is a plant stand. -Four legs twisted into the form Of scrolls should be made Runar- ately, laying one upon another until they are exactly alike. ' Then fohnl, two strong bands of the iron work 'Just large enough to hold tre vase, tub, or other flower receptacle.

The whole piece can be riveted together in one straight figure before it is necessary to. curve. them, And. then two or three riyetg will complete the article.

Hayne, Instructor in viticulture and olive culture at the State University, Is expecting daily a consignment of a patented preparation which It Is claimed solves the problem of killing phylloxera without In any way Injuring the vines which the Insect attacks.

About the same time there appeared in the Examiner a letter from Prof.' Hayne Id regard to the efforts which had beeij made locally to counteract the11 ravages of phylloxera. This caught the eye of Mr. Mackle and he' forwarded 4 copy to Prof. Hayne of that portion of his cousin's letter which was germane to the subject; As a result a correspondence started between the Belfast chemist and the Berkeley professor, 'and now the compound has been shipped td this city to be tested at the experimental station of the State University. '"" All that Mri Maokie claims for it is set forth in the following paragraph from a second letter from his cousin lnf Belfast, under date of September: ' "My opinion of our compound is that it will astonish Californiaft Its' merits will commend themselves- when tried.
