It Wai fio Fanny That- It .lluiln Even All London is l;iug-hinj; r now over a bit of testimony that was {riven in the hearings on Lady Somerset's crusade uffainst the London publiu halls. Not to be behind our own _Dr. I'arkluirst when he bc;run his crusade, Lady Henry Somerset determined to take the bull by the horns aud collect evidence herself. She secured another lady as zealous as herself as a companion, and tlio pair obtained the services of a yonnp curate of their acquaintance as male escort. Now, it happens that Lady Somerset '-a woman of very g-encrous propor- fc^ua, uncl, withal,.so handsomely made FOR THE ORCHARD. LADY SOMKKBET. that some ot tho ungodly huvo been wicked enough to sug-gest that her ladyship would make au enchanting- living; picture herself. It chanced, also, that, the lady who was to accompany her was of a similarly generous build, If anything rather the larger of tho two. On the other hand the young Curate was slight and wea'/oned, with a pale, mild face, that bore a perpetual air of melancholy. The U'ip was ir.mde, and when the detective party wus placed upon the stand during the hearing the justice asked her ladj-ship" if in her travels about in the slums she had been molested or accosted in an offensive way. Lady Henry was compelled to reply that she had not, but on the contrary, she had rather respectful treatment. Her companion pave similar testimony. When the little curate took the stand tho judge asked the same question of him—if he had been accosted. .- "Yes," replied the little man, in a ^rill voice, "and very offensively, too." ^"\Vell," said the judge, "what did the women say to yon?" "Wei!, sir," the em-ate declared, with comical indip-uation, "in one of tho musical halls a couple of women came up to me and one of them brazenly chucked me under the chin and said: 'IVhy so sad, Willie?' " • Even Lady Henry Somerset could not suppress her laughter. Tin- Oouii'Btlo Oitle. seem to have all A »w BiiiT Kxcnllrnt Device lor Ajrltat- inc Spniylnq: Compounds. The great difficulty which we all have in keeping spraying- liquids in suspension has led me to experiment on an automatic agitator, with the re- unit that I think I have made one that will keep any liquid, fungicide or insecticide thoroughly agitated. This contrivance, shown in tho cut, is made for use with the barrel lying on its side, which \ve consider tho best way to carry it, and consists of an arm («) of flat iron one-eighth inch thick and seven-eighths inch wide, attached to the handle of tho pump and entering' the barrel about six or eight inches from its head. This arm is attached to an elbow (4), with arms six inches in length, which is fastened into a socket about four inches in length, that is bolted to the head of the barrel at (c). At the lower end of the elbow is attached a short arm (<I), which is joined to the long arm that carries tho dashers or agitators (f). This joint is necessary in order that the dashers may lie on the bottom of the V irjel, and not be lifted up at every stroke of the pump. With the movement of the ICOPYIUCHT, 1895.1 H E baseball crank will soon be in his element again. Throug-h- outthe long-winter he has had to live on memories and prospects, but now that tho frost lias left the ground and tffc players are actually in the field again his interest is absorbed in the race for the championship pennant for ISO;;. The long struggle for supremacy on the baseball diamond will begin on April IS, and from that date to the closing of the league season at the end of September the play will be as nearly continuous as bad weather and the intervening Sundays will permit. Each club will piny twelve games with each of the other clubs—six at home and six abroad—a total of one hundred and thirty-two games for each club. The schedule has some noticeably good features this year.which are qiiitunew. Many of tho series of games will be. broken up instead of being played consecutively. A western team in the cast will not play three games with New .York, three with Brooklyn, three with Boston and so on, but in many cases will play in New York, then Brooklyn, then New York again, and money in baseball, and wore glad to sell out their interests in the management of the Giants. Freedinau has started with unbounded enthusiasm. Ee has secured a number of new players, and has retained almost all of last year's strong team. The chief loss to the club will be in famous old "Johnny" \Yard, the captain, manager and crack second baseman of last year's team. Wa'rd is now a past master in the art of baseball, and has grown almost too old for the game. lie has started in to study law, and has given up baseball for good. His old place at second base will be hard to fill. Stafford and little "Yale" Murphy arc both being tried in that position, and one or the other will probably fill the place acceptably, though not in AYard's way. Davis will captain the Giants this summer in their long campaign, and will act as manager as well. lie plays third^ bas?, and is one of the most reliable m'en on the team. With sueh a quartette of pitchers as Rusie, Mcekin. Clark and German, and perhaps Knauss. the new man, to fall back on. New York- will be strong in that department, which is half tho game in itself. "Buck" Ewing, the famous ex-captain of the New York Giants, has boon signed to captain the Cincinnati team, and will cover first 'base for them this season. Ewing played with the Cleveland team last, year, until his arm gave out again, when he gave up for the season. This yeaHiis arm seems to bo in good shape, and "Buck" is back on the field again. Cincinnati is his native city, and Kwing seems glad to get back with the people he knew so well before he came east to play with the Giants. Couvlsky. last year's captain of the Cin-. cinnati team, and who also captained the famous St. Louis "lirowns" during their eventful career in the American association, will play with and captain What is the lato What do you think of "You novels, Jimson. them?"

In order that the liquid that may have settled on tin; bottom may be stirred thoroughly before sturtui;, r the pump, the arm (it) is fitted to tlio pump handle by a. slot (f), so that it may be quiekly slipped off aud worked upward and downward a few times before beginning' to pump. All the parts are made of llat iron one-eig-hth inch thick by three-fourths inch wide, and can be made by one having facilities for cutting such iron and drilling- holes to fasten it together. The parts aro held tog-ether by .short stove bolts. The dashers are fasWSiJcil to the rod by a screw passing- throngh it. In the adjustment of this apparatus to the barrel, the pump must be brought near enough to the end of the barrel to allow of the full sweep of the pmnphar.dlc, and the rod, (n) fixed to the handle so as to pire a full sweep to the elbow (I) that the dashers may be carried forward aad backward to their fullest extent. We have tested this :i>rit:i,tor as far as it is possible at this season of the year, and fed that, if properly adjusted, it will be entirely satisfactory.

A TREK that has pleuty of room to grow naturally needs very little trimming. IF a tree makes a slow growth it is advisable to cut back the shoots a little in the spring. • ' SITXUGHT is absolutely necessary to the health and growth of the tree and the production of good fruit.

LvjcRl" from borers can be prevented to some extent by placing 1 a mound of coal ashes around the stem of the .trees. then" two or three with Boston, stopping on the return trip from 7!eantown to complete the series with the New Yorksand the Brooklyns. This break- iug up of the consecutive scries of games'should increase the popular interest by a greater variety of opponents. The season opens with the eastern clubs pitted against each other and the western clubs opposed by others from the same section of the country. After this first round, the eastern clubs go west and make a tour of the west, playing three games in each of the six western cities. This section is followed by the western teams coining east for a similar series in June. Again east vs. east and west, vs. west, and again the eastern clubs go west and the western clubs take their turns in the cast, and thcrtihe schedule winds up in Septem- ber'by another east vs. east and west vs. west series. All agree that the prospects for good ball, large profits and extended public interest were never brighter, and the cranks are looking forward with unbounded enthusinsci. Of course each city ]ws its "rooters." and all are equally confident of the ultimate victory of their favorite teams, but the league race is yet to be run, and all predictions arc necessarily hazardous, for no one can tell till they have played together what a team can do, and most of the teams have been somewhat remodeled. The New York "Giants 1 ' will start the season with most favorable prospects. Baseball enthusiasts, as a rule, are very optimistic, but there scorns to *.£** ane of the teams of the western league this season. Cincinnati has secured a lot of young players from the western league who are being tried for places this spring. In St. Louis the baseball cranks aro howling with joy over the acquisition of Center Fielder Tom Brown, who lias been secured from the Louisville team, lie was once ranked as the fastest base rrnner in the league, and is still thought to be phenomenal in- this line. He will play in the outfield for Cincinnati during lSl)o. St. Louis has also exchanged I'itcfier Hawley for Pitcher Ehret, of Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh rooters arc glad to secure the services of llawley, for they believe him to be a, really remarkable twirler, as do many of those in the east. Lnst fall liawley pitched for St. Louis in the last series of games against the Boston team, and by his fine work in beating the Bean- eaters throe straight games materially aided New York to win second place in the'race for the league championship pennant. There have been a number of changes in the playing rules this year, most of which seem' to be aimed nt the better enforcement of the present laws rather than new ones. The umpires will be governed by much more stringent rules than heretofore, and will bo subject to fine, just as the players aro. Another feature will be that the mannCement of the teams will not be allowed :o pay the fines of their players. ,>11 have agreed not, to do this, and the men fined must pay out, of their own money. This will reduce the kicking and other boisterous work of the unruly players finan- and sc- heap—if not ou the very apex of pyramid—this season. Last year wound up in a blaze of glory, for although the Giants finished second to the Baltimore. Orioles, they were virtually- the champions. • In the special scries of games for Temple cup, played directly after the close of the regular league season, they won four straight victories from the Baltimoreans. This spring there have been a number of important changes in the team, its players and its managers. la the Erst place Andrew Freedman, a New York real estate dealer, has bought out a controlling interest in the club and now directs its movements. "Eddta" Talcott and others of the old board of directors had got tired sinking As to other changes, perliaps the most important is that which declares that a foul tip caught within ten feet of the plate will be counted as a strike this rear. No players other thaln the catcher and first baseman will be allowed to wear big raits, and only small gloves will be allowed to other fielders 'and basemen. Owing to the confusion on the question of base running on short, fly hits, the umpires this year will call out at once on each fly ball when two men are on bases and there is not more than one ont. tvhether the ball is an infield or an outfield hit. On the former the base-runners cannot be forced out, and on the latter they can; hence the confusion in deciding. J. PAP.ULY PABEX.
