f!k , _.,. . Pfc •' !{' STRAWBERRY CULTURE. Sirperlonco of a Farmer Wto Has Coltl- i vated Half an Acre. ! Some writers on strawberry culture, ••eem to convey the idea that to be (profitable new beds must be planted fcvcry.year. This may be the case in jflelcl culture on a large scale. But to many it is discouraging to think the ground must be occupied and carefully cultivated for two- .seasons. to get one -crop only. My experience of many years on a small scale (half an acre) is the reverse, and I cannot see why the area could not be increased with the same result. Any good fertile soil can be well ma- nured, plowed and harrowed in tho •spring and planted with extra early potatoes or peas, which can be got off ^y the last of July. Without any ad- 'ditional manure, the ground can be iplowed, harrowed, leveled-and planted 'during the first two weeks in August, •with strong, stocky strawberry plants, '16 inches apart, in rows 2S inches apart, '•with 33 inches between every fourth row for a path for picking. - These [plants, if properly set out, kept free jfrom weeds and all runners cut, will yield a good paying crop in June. "With ithe same care, a full crop will be got 4ihe following: June; and with a favorable season and tho weeds kept down, la paying crop may be got the third sea- iBon, but the berries will be smaller. In order to get strong- plants, place tfour or five of the first runners from ,each one-year-old plant, and lay ^a Ismail stone on the vine to keep it in iplace until rooted. Keep all other runners cut off. The plants will be ready to set out the first week in August They will be better than any that can 'be bought, and will give as good a crop |iu June as the much advertised pot- Hound, pot-grown plants. By using a steel-tined prong hoe between the rows and plants, as often as •necessary, they can be kept cultivated and free from weeds, as easily as a crop of any vegetable grown in rows.-' A ipood coat of horse manure should be (scattered between the •• plants just before frost, and. the whole bed covered feery lightly with evergreen- boughs, leaves and brush, or cornstalks, after 'the ground is frozen. As my plants get to be'12 to 15 inches in diameter before the fruit-is ripe, I do not find it necessary to mulch them, the plants nearly covering the ground. Crescent Seedling, with a few Sh-arpless to fertilize them, has proved the best •with me. Any variety of feeble growth and liable to sunburn will not do as •well in single rows. I can get more quarts of good berries with less labor ifrom the same area of single plants Ithan by the matted-row system. If a |bed gets foul with grass and weeds, it is' easier to plant a 'new one than to ••weed it out. To insure a supply of .good fruit every year, one or more new ,beds should be set out each August (Beginners having no plants to propa- .gate from must buy a few goc-d plants .and set them out early in the spring-. IWith good care, and allowing no fruit -to form, or more than one-half the runners to take root, the rest being cut off, a supply of plants will be ready to set in August —J. W. Martens, ir (Country Gentleman. Growing Old. "I went home shortly after nine o'clock the other evening," said a well known gentleman of long residence in this city to a friend yesterday, "and I was pretty tired, too. As I entered the hall I saw sitting in the parlor my eldest daughter and a young man who has "been coming to the house for some time. As I hung up my coat, my eyes discovered the second daughter and a joungmanat the piano in the sitting-room!' Going into my library, I found my other daughter," who is still in school, entertaining a young lad of nice appearance.. Going up stairs, I found my wife and I asked her in a laughing •way if we had better not move out. I lave thought considerably on the matter since. It was a sudden awakening to the fact that I am getting old. And somehow I have thought more, if thai is possible, of my girls ever since, as I realize that but a few years will ,see them leaving the old place for homes of their own, and my wife and I, .in declining years, again alone in the-home nest Yes, I feel a good,many.years older and I'have felt kind of blue as I think how far along in life I am. J '—Ee- .troit Free Press. To Laundry Handkerchiefs. A convenient and excellent method of laundrying handkerchiefs is extensively used by ^European lady travelers, .and''is serviceable to many others. When rjroperly washed, they should be •wrung'out of either hot or cold rinsing- water, but not wrung very dry. Now, laving wiped-off 'any -dust, from the. mirror, marble table or, in an emergency, the .window-pane, smooth the wet linen carefully on the glass or marble surface, being very careful to press out all wrinkles, and see that every, part clings closely to the surface. Embroidery can be made to look very nicely. In a few hours the handkerchief will be beautifully smooth and dry. If carefully done, a fine muslin handkerchief laundried in this way looks better than when submitted to the smoothing- iron, and many travelers prefer to continue this method after the special exigencies of travel are over.—Is. Y. Ledger.' . —Potatoes a la Lyonnaise.—These po- • tatoes are quite famous for their excellence. Cut eight potatoes, boiled, into round slices; lay them in a frying-pan with" one and a half ouces of butter and the round slices of'a previously fried onion, and season with one-half pinch each of salt and pepper. Cook well together for six minutes until well browned; toss them well and serve with a pinch of chopped parsley sprinkled -over the whole.—Boston Budget —Scald the bowl in which the butter and sugar are to be creamed for cake; the hot dish heats the butter so that it -will blend much easier with tie sugar. PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. —An aristocratic woman of Denver, Jol., was among .the spectators of the ritzsimmons-Bempsey prize fight Shu was disguised in man's attire. —A box alleged to contain books and addressed to a minister of the gospel in Montana, was examined by the customs nspectors and found to contain ninety;ix pounds of opium, valued at over Sl,400. The reverend smuggler has not claimed his goods. •There is one gentleman in Newman, Ga., who evidently does not consider marriage a failure. He was married about ten years ago, and on each Christmas morning' since he has presented ;he minister who officiated at the ceremony with a ten dollar gold piece. —Guiseppe Carrusa, otherwise Count Montercole, who upon the flimsy claim of nobility effected a matrimonial alliance with an American girl of wealth, Miss Virginia Knox, has been sent to the Philadelphia house of correction for six months for having no visible means of support , —Baron Haussmann was the wearer of all the orders in Europe, and one of ;he few civilians honored with the great ribbon .of the Legion of Honor. M. de Lesseps, "the great Frenchman," and M. Pasteur alone shared this highest distinction with him who was called "the great baron." —The Baroness Althea Salvador, whose letters ' from Paris to American newspapers have .made her quite well known, is an accomplished musician, and her salon is one of the most charming in Paris. She is a tall and slender blonde, quite pretty, and always elegantly dressed. - The baroness is an American girl, being a descendant of an old New Hampshire family. -Emperor William has added in the last year an unusual number of celebrated names to the membership list of the Black Eagle order. Among them are Secretary of State von Boetticher, Chancellor von Caprivi, Count von Hatz- feldt (ambassador in London), Prince Eupprecht of Bavaria, Prince Christian of Denmark, Prince.Frederick William of Prussia, Gen. von Alvensleben, Prince William' of Nassau and Prince Adolf of Schaumburg-Lippe. —There is a clergyman up in central New York who takes himself pretty seriously. He has just felt it his duty to withdraw from the ministry; and this is the grandiloquent way in which he announces the fact: "For a while my tongue shall be silenced and my pen palsied. I shall drop into the great sea of humanity and be lost to hearing and to sight But I have no complaint. With grim eye and solemn lip I am determined to meet the ghoulish future, whether fated an Ishmael or an Abraham, plaintless and I trust without a moan." —This story about Edwin Booth is larrated by " someone who supplies dramatic gossip to the Detroit Free Press: "An actress who played the part of old woman in his company three or four years ago was not over too well blessed with this world's goods. On the final night of the season, somewhere up in New England, Mr. Booth presented her with a book. Of course she appreciated the courtesy and resolved to treasure the volume as a precious souvenir of her association with the great actor. But what words could describe her emotions when, a few days later, on turning over the leaves of the book, she found between them a new crisp one-thousand-dollar bill!" ••A LITTLE NONSENSE." —"I suppose it's all profit in the drug business?" "All profit? Do you suppose we get fixtures and showcases for nothing?*—Philadelphia Times. '' —The end of the world is set for March, 1S93. At least, it might just as well be, for after that date every telephone inventor can spring a new infliction on the long suffering public.—St Joseph News. —It Comes Easy Now.—He (to Chicago bride)—"Didn't you feel a trifle nervous during the marriage ceremony?" She—"No, indeed. I confess I .used to, but I've got over that now."— Yankee Blade. "Why won't you take Flickeles as partner?" " "My" dear fellow, Flickeles -was engaged to my--wife-before I married her. And would you have me take for a partner a man who is cleverer than,!?—Fliegende Blatter." —Sanso— "Women'nowadays- are not the tender creatures they are popularly supposed to be: They, can stand a great deal."- .Mrs. Sanso— t'-Yes, and -I -presume that-is why you 'men- let us stand so much in the elevated cars."—N.

Miss Caustique—"Then he _has been putting a good:deal of money into real estate." "How's that?" "He is spending §5,000 a year on a vacant lot" —Brooklyn Life. —Causticus says that if 'Eve had been as recklessly'extravagant as some women of the present day there wouldn't have been any of the apple left for Adam to have eaten after she lad taken what she considered her "share."—Brooklyn Eagle. —"If only you were, hi New York," said Miss Flyppe-to Cholly, "you would be 'a central .figure in the Four Hundred." It was three days—three blissful days—before it dawned on dolly's mind that the central figure in 400 is a cipher:—Indianapolis Journal : —Lord Gershaw (whose person is rather forbidding)—"Now, love, I will give ye this locket containing me portrait. Ye musn't let any othah cad see it, ye knaw." Miss Porcine—"Really, my lord, you don't know what pleasure it gives me to promise you that"— Jewelers' Weekly. A HARD CUSTOMER. But Ho Was Too Klnd-Heiirtcd to Let Any One Suffer. A'man sat at a desk, busily writing. A young fellow entered and, handed him a paper. "What's this, young man?" "That bill from Wesley & Co." "Oh, yes. Won't you sit down?" "Haven't time. I want tie money on this bill." "But 'I have no money."' "That's what you always say." "Yes, and I am always truthful." "Can't you pay some on it?" "If I haven't any money, how am I going to pay any on it?" "I tell you it's getting pretty tiresome coming up here." "I have found it so, young fellow." "Can't you tell me when you will pay?" "I can't promise that, but I'll promise to tell you when I do pay." "Weil, the firm has about decided to do something'." "Glad to know it and will help them all I can." "You shouldn't expect me to keep on running after you." "I don't expect it of you. In fact I wish you wouldn't." "I have worn out my shoes nearly, and all on your account." ."Nearly worn out your shoes. Well, I declare, that's too bad. Let me see, what number do you wear?" "About a seven." "Alt right," said the man, reaching under the desk and drawing out a pair of shoes, "here is a pair that I think will just fit you. Take them and wear them in remembrance of me, and when I lave caused you to wear out another pair I will let you have the ones I now have on. It has been my rule never to let the innocent suffer on my account Gooc'.-by."—Arkansaw Traveler. Nearly Frantic. Has it ever been your misfortune to be brought into frequent contact with a person excessively nervous. If so, you must he aware that trival causes, unnoticed by the vigorous, drive a nervous invalid to the verge of distraction. It is as unnecessary to particularize these as it impossible to guard against them. The root of the evil is usually imperfect indigestion and assimilation. To assist these functions, and through their renewed, complete discharge to reinfoice weak nerves, in conjunction with other por lions of physical organism is within the power of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, systematically and continuously used. There is no disappointment here, no matter what or how grievous the failures of other so-called tonics. No sedative or opiate—avoid both!— can compare with this invigorating nerve tranquilizer.
