MILEAGE BOOKS. Modified Features of The New I uterchangeable ? Mileage Ticket. Mr. E.A. ForH, Gcnerai;PftfPCDgtr Agem of the Pennsylvania and VurdaJis Lines, pends out the following Information regarding the modified featt res of the Centra* Passenger Association's ::ntcrcbans;eable one thousand mile ticket: The most important modifications are in the rule as to Waning the mileage strip and issuing the exchange ticket. Ccder the new rule, the owner of an interchangeable mileage ticket may. at hlB convenience and leisure, alga bis name iapon the| ; back "of the widest part of the miii'ajre (.trip cloee to the last pre- cedinir detatchisent.ibut.it must be BilfneJ •with an indellMe pencil < r;with it,k. or it will not bo honored, end'can leave his ticket thus gijraed with tbci Agent ujion his arrival at a station, or send it to him|by a mesoenKer or by the hotel portei-, or in some other way. and upon his return to the station !lnd his exchange ticket icady tnd;ais baggage checked: provided he has made such an advance arrangement. Therefore there need be no more delay at the station or on ihe train In the use of the new tha i there was in using the old form of nvleaKet'cket, which latter form was »rix>d only over the B) stem of roadii, while the "IntcrcbaiJKea iie" Is good over forty. The old form of eJtchmiBe.ticket is valid for continuous p»f sage only on n certain train and date, while the newer modlUod form will be good on any triin. {except the "Limited"), on «ither the date of issue or the day following. 1*18 new form has been simplified to render It easy of issun and to bettor accommodate travelers, and the hindrances which accompanied tho old torrn will therefore be, in the early future, entirely obllberated.

Miss Stella sat there in the welcome glow of the sun, inhaling the pure fresh air with a great physical delight while the soft morning zephyr geE.tly fanned and refreshed her like a potent elixir. What a restful rest it was! Wha.t a delight; what a glorious, satisfying repose! There seemed to be nothing in the world left to be wished for—if she could sit there forever, motionless, absorbing light and air and sunshine and rest! Far down within the lost, unmOTed depths of her tranquil mind there was a. faint, unrealized inclination to think of something outside of herself, and beyond the moment, in some direction; but to do so involved an exertion which I she lacked the desire to make. To think would be to invite fatigue and she felt so weak that she wished only to rest forever, with her mind as blank and still as the placid bosom of an untroubled pool. : The lapse of time was unnoted and the protracted absence of the Prophet was unnoticed. "Hullo!" She looked around and snw Tom Coyne with his elongated artillery on his shoulder. His presence did not surprise her; she was not interested in Us presence or in his errand o>- MI •«<" • thing beyond her own restful rest. 3he knew that Tom Coyne was beside her but that fact was all that she exerted herself to comprehend. "Good morning, Tom." "Thunder! Jerusalem crickets! Stell Zenith! Where'd you come from?" She was Sio thin ?.nd wasted and pale that he had not recognized her till she spoke. In startled surprise he relaxed his grasp upon his gun, which fell with a loud rattle and clangor upon the stones. She was not interested in Tom or his artillery, but she was too indolent to be actively uncivil, so she answered: "I came from Barton; from the Let- sons!" "But that was ever so long ago! You've been lost an' given up for gond an' all this long time!" "Have I?" "Of course you have! Don't you know you have?" "No." "You didn't s'pose they knowed where you was?" "I had not thought about it at all," "Hadn't thought about the folks all the time you've been gone?" Tom was indignant. "Have I been gone long? I hadn't noticed. You haven't grown up yet!" "See here. Stell Zenith! What ails you? You look like a biied ghost got cold!" "I guess I have been sick." "Why in thunder don't you go home when your pa an' nia an' Carrie an 1 all the folks an 1 that s-.;jiuant -feller are just crazy an' dyin' about you bein' gone an' lost? Why don't you go horns I say?" His energy aroused her dormant mind all at once. A great longing to be at home with her pargets, and sisters surged over her soul and she cried: "Oh, Tom! Take me home? I can't walk; can't you take me home, Tom dear." "Golly. I wish I could carry you; but I ean't'i Can't you lean on me an' •walk?" "No, no: I can't walk; I can't stand *p. Oh, Tom, take me home? Do take me home? Please, Tom?" She wept and Tom was in great distress and began to cry also. "Say, Stell. how 'd you git here?" "The Prophet carried me." "The old thief! I'll shoot a pound ov shot into him! The old abduction!" "No, no, Tom! He is kind and good and if it hadn't be«n for him I would have died on tbe hillside yonder. He carried me up here and has taken care of me when I was so sick that I was crazy and helpless for I don't know how long. Has K been a year. Tom?" "All the same he shall carry you home right now or I will shoot that pound of shot into him anyway for not tellin' us? Where is the old gibber- cosher?" "He is inside. Oh. do run in and ask lira to carry me home. I will die if I save to stay here another niijibt." Tom went into the hut; through the first room, through the second; into the third. There he saw the Prophet kneeling before the altar. Both hands rested, palms down, upon th« open Bible: the face was upturned and the light fell full upon It. Torn stopped suddenly and sat down in reverent silence 10 await the conclusion of the prayer. It appeared to Tom to become entirely too long for a rez4onabla prayer.and he ventured to signal nis presence' Dy-iT couga - whlcn was unnoticed by the worshipper. At length the boy'» impatience overcame both his awe of tho Prophet and his reverence for the Prophet's devotions and he timid!}' exclaiined: "Amen!" There was no effect and after a while he ventured ^r*' in . louder and with boldness: "Amen, amen!" Still there was no effect, and after a time that Tom thought very long he got op aad noisily moved a stool; then he tried ooushing roughly two or three times. Still tie worshipper remained unditturhed. There ir&s no response «id Tow bs- Cleveland's is the strongest' of all pure cream of tartar baking powders, yet its great merit is not its strength, but the fact that it is pure, wholesome and " J ?3!*T i sure.

As he made the announcement he stood ready to retreat and fall back up- i on his artillery; but there was no dam- j onstration on the part of the Prophet | and Tom walked close to his aide and , gazed down upon him. Only tor an | instant; then with ghastly face he rushed out to Miss Stella and in a. voice .rambling and husky from fright, j ,ried: | "Oh. Stell! He is dead!" j She sank back against the hut and j silently wept in his memory, for she j elt now how kind and unselfisih and i devoted and tender he had be«n to her I and she loved him for his goodness. His death was a poignant grief to her and she wept long: in silence. Tom sat on a great stone in awe, sympathy and , silence. Finally Mi*s Stella, still weep- I .ng, said: "Tom, will you go home and sand after me?" "Of course! Why didn't I think of that before! Jimminy crickets! Won't [ raise the town!" At her words he sprang to his f«et and before his own were fully uttered le started down the hill at a wild gait. She called him back and remonstrated: "No, no, Tom! That won't do! Go to Bell Morton and tell her. Tell her to get a carriage and come with you; don't tell another living soul! The folks at home must have some warning and Bell will know what to do." "All right! I won't peach! Now Stell, don't you get scared or lonesome. It'll take a couple of hours to git there an' back; but I'll run every inch of the way, an' I won't let Bell Morton waste a minnit, you bet; but I don't spose she'll wantta! Now don't you be afraid Mebbe Mollie Zenith will find out boys is good for somtithin' on earth after alK" Forgetful of his precious antique ar- tillpry Tom dashed :vway down the hill at his best speed. Miss SteiUi kept her eyes on him as he dropped lower and , lower, till he disappeared entirely. j [CON 1 ! INl.KO.1 AMERICAN STEPLADDERS. Do l>e Found In Almost Every Civilized Country cm tlie Globe. The general advance in lightness of tonstruction, gracefulness and utility >f even the most commonplace articles &f American manufacture is shown, in nothing more plainly than in the stepladder. Those who are old enough to remember the stepladder of forty years tgo will recall a ladder with solid Board, sides of uniform width, from top ;o bottom and with the ends of tha iteps inserted in grooves or channels :ut to receive them. The brace at the jack, which was spread out to hold iie ladder up when in use, was held lecurely at the ri);ht distance from the ladder by means of an iron rod with i hook at the end. The first great improvement was In '.he substitution of a hinged joint for :his rod. The next improvement in- rolved a radical change in the manner jf construction of the ladder. For the lolid board sides there was substituted in open construction that is in effect rery much like a truss. The material lightening of the step- adder has led naturally to an increase XL its height. Formerly twelve feet iras the highest standard stepladder; :hey are now made eighteen feet in Height, the lowest regular size being iree feet. Stepladders are made in this country ifherever there sire forests that pro- luce lumber suitable for manufactur- jig purposes. Stepladders are made lold so cheap that in dollars the step- adder output makes only a small item ts compared with many others. Still, f one had the money paid out in this :ountry in a single year for steplad- Jers he could smile at the wolf. American Stepladders are exported to !oreis;n countries all over the world. Stepliidders are shipped knocked down, >f spruce, and of pine, and sometimes partly of oak. They are not usually i separate article of manufacture, but ire made in conjunction with other iings, utilizing when possible ends ind ipieces left from the manufacture >f other things in mills where various .hings are made and where no material s allowed to go to waste. The annual production of Stepladders n this country is very large, hundreds if thousands annually, but they are ially reduces the duties. American rtepiadders are exported to Great Britain and all her colonies, to all »rts of Continental Europe, Germainy, ?Yance and elsewhere, to Mexico and Central America, the West Indies, and South America. There is. in fact, icarcely a civilized country on the face >f the earth in which there may not » found Stepladders imported from he United States.—New York Sun "Lookw h»r», Jokn the Baptist, I Logical Deductions From Recent Whist Contests.

Trump Showing In Practiral Play—Relative Advantage* of the Long and Short Suit Leadit—The Walbrook System. Walbrook of Baltimore beat Philadelphia. Philadclphinng wero champions. Therefore, ncrording to all the known rules of logic iiiul the accepted rules of eporc, the Wnlbronks were then champions. Walbrook beat Albany. Albany was the challenger. Champions—Walbrook still. Next— Subsequently the Walbrooks attempted to defend their title—the possession of the American Whist league challenge trophy —against the Baltimore Whist club. Attempted, but could not. By their townsmen adversaries the Wai brooks were defeated by eight tricks. Sic transit—the trump showing lead. Both the Walbrook and the Baltimore Whist clubs arc representatives of the Monumental City—brethren and yet rivals, personal friends and whist antagonises, exponents of different systems, trump showing and not, the good and tho better —and the better were not the Walbrooks. It .aive." me great pleasure to think that the Walbrooks' system has not been successful to the degree of sensationalism. If the whist players of the United States had got the impression from a long scries of Walbrook victories that the trump showing lead was the proper thing, we might have had a wilderness o£ such— things. You remember Shylock's wilderness of monkeys: They are — things. The trainp showing- leads, a la Walbrook, arc things that whist players should not monkey with. This iit not vindictiveness. That I am opposed to trump showing leads, pare and simple, in the Walbrook fashion, is sulli- cieutly well known. That I am opposed to the -'straight" long suit game is no less a matter of record. Walbrook—trump showing. Baltim ore—' 'straight." Both—long suit. Now, i:f you are acquainted with me and with the whist school which I feebly uphold, you understand that of long suit- ism, unc'omprising, I am uncotnprisingly no lover, but it may bo news to you to learn that a long suit victory "straight" is more pleasing to me than a long suit victory accompanied by fads. Perhaps Cavendish, who has recently written on "whist fads" in an influential American magazine, considers mo one of the chief faddists and offenders against his sensibilities. I will not question those sensibilities of his. The last time I met him I presented him as "the master" with a, copyof " Whist Openings." "lamobliged to you for the book," said he, "but d—n short suits!" This is courtesy of a sort, but people of ordinary tempers will understand why, after experiences of the same kind and not a few of them, I should in cold blood welcome a long suit victory over another long suit team because it is "dorg eat dorg!" When the other day in Baltimore I met a member of the Baltimore Whist, club team, I learned a lot of things from him, but the chief lesson was that not "system," but better whist, won the Baltiinore- WaJbrook game. So much I gladly acknowledge. So much I might without question acknowledge about any match. It is the usual results-skill and experience beat --system." And still I must say that I believe, both from an examination of the records of this match and from general ID formation, that the Walbrooks' defeat was due in a measure to their ''system." Moral 1.—Don't play the long suit game with "fads" because it is inferior to the "straight." Moral 2.—Don't play the -''straight" game because you must. Moral 3.—Play the short suit game (which, Cavendish notwithstanding, is not B "fad"). E. C. HOWELL. Tightening F«daU.

HORTICULTURAL CROPS. The Proper SoQ» in- Track Farinlnr or Fruit Growing,, In selecting a location tor truck farming or commercial fruit growing, the character of the soil should be carefully considered; for, next to suitable transportation facilities, it is a question of tlie greatest importance. The kind of soil selected will naturally depend on the crop to be grown. For (the home garden, F. S. Earle, of the Alabama Experiment Station, thinks almost any of the soils of the state can be made to answer a very good purpose. An essential requirement jtor both fruits and vegetables is good drainage, either natural or artificial. This is especially necessary where earliness is a question of importance, Ifor wet sodden soils are always cold and backward in the spring. Soils •with a certain amount of sand are easier to cultivate, and will be more suitable for most vegetables than heavy clay soils. They car^ be planted earlier in the spring and will mature crops earlier. The ideal truck soil is a moist but not wet, black sandy loam, containing abundant vegetable matter; and preferably resting on a not too impervious red clay subsoil. It should 'be nearly level, or with a gentle southern exposure. Of course the greater the natural fertility the better, but after all this is not a vital questi.on, for there are no soils so rich that they will stand continuous trucking without frequent and heavy applications of fertilizing material. The mechanical condition, and moisture holding capacity of the soil is really of greater importance to the truck farmer, than its Chemical composition; and t.hes£ must tie maintained by continually adding to its supply of vegetable matter; either by applications of stable manure, or by plowing under green crops.. Only comparatively level lands should be olanted to truck crops. On steep broken hillsides too much fertility >s lost b'y washing and there is too much extra labor in cultivation. All stumps, rocks or other obstructions should be carefully removed in order to admit ;he use of modern cultivating machinery. Very broken hillsides are sometimes utilized by planting them to fruit trees and especially to grape vines. Fine fruit can be grown in such loca- ;ions, and in some cases it may be the Dest way of using such lands. It is, aowever, usually unwise to plant commercial orchards on land so rolling as ;o prevent rowing the trees and cultivating both ways, on account of the added labor in cultivating and harvesting where the rows have to circle the hillsides. Only rich lying lands should be selected for orchards, especially of the stone fruits, not only on account of the better drainage, but because of the greater freedom from spring frost, and a less liability to loss from rot. High land fruit is finer colored and more attractive than that grown on low Irmds. A flat-topped aill with the land Doping away in all directions is an ifrial location for an orchard, especially if there is a good red clay subsoil. The character of Che ;op soil is not so important. It may be a little sandy, in which case the fruit will be a few days earlier; but a stiff red clay throughout, with only a small amount of vegetable matter, will give fruit of the highest flavor, best color and best shipping quality. Marigolds. The old-fashioned Marigolds so familiar to us all, possess medicinal virtues of great value that have not, until quite recently, been known. Its healing properties, and power to allay inflammation of severe cuts and lacerated wounds, are i ery great, and for such purposes it is one of the best remedies known. Therefore, Marigolds should be given a place in every garden. The way to apply them is to gather the fnssh leaves and flowers, place them in a cup or bowl and hruise them until all the juice is extracted, then add alcohol and water, about one part of alcohol to two of water; three or four spoonfuls of alcohol and water to one teaspoonful of the juice is about right. A cloth must be thoroughly wet with the preparation, and kept constantly moist. la the fall prepare some of the tincture to keep in a bottle for winter use, omitting the water; when wanted to use it can then be diluted. Effect of Injuries to Plante. According to an English authority, when a plant is bruised or injured in any way, a condition arises which exactly corresponds to what we term fever. The rate of respiration is increased, and temperature of the parts affected is considerably raised. The disturbance has its period of increase, reaches a climax and subsides as docs ordinary fever. Indeed, the increase in temperature is quite as great, if not greater than in animals. This opens a wide field for investigation ar.d discussion, and one which will be followed up by lovers of nature and its very interesting phenomena. . Slujp*. It is not so well known as it should be that the force pump throwing a stream of as cold v r ater as can be had against rose slugs will destroy them, and leave the bushes fresh, and vigorous. It is a much better method thsji drenching the vines with ill-smelling compounds that may kill the siugs, but will also at the saiie time destroy the pleasure to be had from the flowers. Improvement* in the Trotter. Kobert Bonner mentions the striking fact that when he bought his first trotting horse in 1865 oily nineteen horses, living and dead, lid trotted a mile in 2:30. Now there are more than 13,090 in the list. PECK'S COMPOUND CURES-*Nervousness.
