TRANSPLANTING TREES. to Ilandl* Them After They Hivr* Been Properly Dug- About. rom the fact that so many trans- tcd trees either die outright or • along 1 a miserable existence for a tr or two, it would appear that thero widespread misconception as to ( proper care to be exercised in trans- Inting. It i.s a common practice to Ir a tree tip somewhat roug-bly, laking- off the fine roots that are tho |st needed by the tree, and cutting- o biff roots, bccaiiac it i.s too much rk to follow them out to their tips Ind then to attempt to equalise Itters by savagely cutting- off the « , leaving littlo but thu stern o,>andcvcn that usually has it > cut off! This seems to me consider- like taking out one of a. man's tgs because his supply of air is to bo \ oit presently! A judicious pruning, transplanted tree is all rig-ht and but such slaughter us in \isu- [ made of lim"bs and the top of tho is, to my mind, a very foolish feeding 1 . A much better plan is to ciso more care and effort in taking tio tree, taking up a big 1 bunch of' | earth with tho fine roots undis- It ia the fine rootlets that [ the tree, and It ts the loss of these t so often causes the tree to die after splanting. The forcible removal tree from tho ground is almost i to tear off all those rootlets. It' pst to begin some distance out from I tree, and to cut the turf carefully ad it, digging down -with caution not to 6nt off any important 'When these are found they ild ••; bo carefully followed out for a considerable distance and loosened from tho soil. The most important caro, however, is in getting tip a big ball of earth with the tree, and this is accomplished by dipgiuer down about and under the tree. This requires some work, but if a tree is worth transplanting it is worth while to make some cllort to give itagood start in its new location. The accompanying illustration shows a most convenient way to handle a tree after it has been properly dug about. A pair of wheels, with a "tongue,"has a piece of joist lashed beneath it. The end of tho tongue, or pole, i.s then raised high in the air and the end of the joist attached to a chain that lias been passed beneath the tree iu two or more directions. When the pole i.s brought down, the tree i.s raised from its position and can bo gently bent forward to the axle, secured there, and carried oil' to its new location. Before being taken .way, however, it will be well to wrap the ball of earth in old burlap to keep the earth from shaking off and disturbing tho small roots. Carried away with V'hecls after this fashion, the tree can be carefully dropped into the cavity provided for it with the least possible jarring. After the loose earth has been carefully packed in about all the exposed roots, u generous coat of mulch should bo applied, and some pruning of tho top made, but not a severe pruning, by any means. Whatever wood is removed should be in the lino of giving 1 . the tree a well proportioned head. Transplanted in this way trees ought to live and grow thriftily, and my experience has been, that they will do so. —TVobbDonnelJ, in X. Y. Tribune. TILE SUB-IRRIGATION.

How Cliicago Cares for Homeless and Needy Women. A Philanthropic Enterprise Bui^'t on Bn»l- neti PrJncipJcn—Tho Work Which Its Founders Hope Eventnally to Accompllnh. [Special Chicago Letter.] Of the numerous and various institutions provided by the philanthropic for the victims of untoward conditions, the lodging house for women is one of the latest to be established. 11 is also one of the most uncommon. There is but one in Chicago, and that was opened only a few months ago. In fact, thero are not more than two or three In this country. The reason that a lodging house for women is so unusual as to be almost unique among institutions Is not far to seek, since it is really simply a matter of supply and demand. It is only since tho advent in numbers of the TRIUMPH OF LOVE IFFY, FRUITFUL MARRIAGE. Man Who Would Know the •nd Truth* tho Plrel..

Uetwecn every second row of plants is laid, a few inches below the surface, a row of drain tiles, the first one in each row coming to the surface. With a hoso each row of tile can be filled in a moment, and the water will l>c absorbed by the 'earth and reach the roots of the plants as needed, and thero will bo no baking of the surface soil. If desired the first row of tile could be extended around through the varous rows and the whole filled from one point. A modification of this idea is used with many other crops.—American Agriculturist. Duration of I.lfu Among Blrctt*. The distinfruiihed German biologist. Wiesmarin, has pointed out that there is less exact knowledge on this subject than might be expected, considering how many in number are the ornithological societies. Small siag-ing birds live from eight to eighteen years. Eavens have lived for almost one hundred years in captivity and parrots longer than that. Fowls live from ten to twenty years (and are then sold as spring chickens to young housekeepers). The wild goose lives upward of one hundred years and swans are said to have attained the age of three hundred. The long life of birds has been nterpretcd as compensation for their tee~ble fertility and for the groat rnpr- :ality of their young. From the small nlanda of St. Hilda, off Scotland, twenty thousand youngpanuets and an mraenso number of eggs are annually collected, and although this bird lays only one egg per annum and is four rears in attaining its maturity, its lumbers do not diminish. Obviously, as 'Wiesraann observes, such birds must reach a great age or thoy would long igo have been exterminated. MISS JANK ADDAMS. IPrlme Mover In the Establishment crt tho Koilol L,odglnf House.! much mooted "New Woman," who very often goes forth totoil. nsdoi's_a man, lor her daily -bread, that there has been ny need of such an institution. Formerly it was only the woman who through some misfortune; wtis obliged to do almost anything- to keep out of the last ditch in the strnfferle for existence that frequently needed shelter; and she, as a rule, stood in need of food, also, and, for tho matter of that, almost everything else. At tho "Home of the Friendless" she was housed, and her needs ministered to until such time as she could bo relaunched on the tide of meager bread winning, to more often than frequently return to be again cared for, since she was essentially a^ dependent creature. The woman whose* temporary needs demand a lodging house such as has been provided in numbers in all large cities for men, is a wholly different being. Sh« is not dependent, but independent. She has usually a bit of money in her pocket and also has clearly defined ideas of what she proposes to do. Her necessity is not to go into dry docks for repairs, but only into a safe harbor for a orief space. She is, not a seeker after charity, in fact would resent its bestowal, although she gladly avails herself of an opportunity to be comfortably housed, when she.can pay a small sum for the accommodation in money or labor. "The Model Lodging House and Workshop for Women." which is sole representative of its kind in Chicago, was established in response to a demonstrated demand. A year ago, when the sudden financial depression was followed by the shutting down of so many factories and workshops, tho Chicago Women's elub secured funds and opened sewing-rooms where women, were paid fifty cents a day in order to relieve as much as possible the want which was pressing. During tho time these emergency sewing-rooms were conducted it become clear that there was need of a lodging house for women with a workshop, where a woman could earn the price of a night's lodging, and even more if necessary. A committee was appointed to see what could be done about establishing- an institution of this kind, and, after securing pledges of financial aid from the various clubs of women throughout the city, the undertaking was launched in a modest way in apartments opening 1 off • a little cul do sac roorns are uniform—as. for instance. saul!:. white single iron beds ore used throughout the house—little things whinh gi^'c a homelike air. as pretty rugs.'afeiv pictures and rociiiajf chairs, are s;dded or withheld, at the will of those: who, as it xverc, adopt the room. It is evident that there is more bestowing than withholding, and also that there is more or less emulation among the different clubs represented as to making the rooms they have in charg-e attractive, as there is not one of them in which there arc not raany things that have no other office than to add to the appearance or comfort of the apartment. In fact, there arc few boarding houses,, of the cheaper sort, when; the rooms arc so pleasant. To be sure, there arc from two to four beds in a room, but everything is spotlessly clean and the ventilation is good. Each little bed is furnished with springs, a nice mattress, sufficient bedding and a white spread. In addition to this there is a gown for every lodger. The rules require that every applicant for a bed shall take a thorough bath and have her clothes examined. She is then j^h'cn a clean gown in which to sleep. Tho rules of "The Model Lodging- house'and Workshop for Women" arc few and simple. First of all. everyone who comes is received. If- the applicants havo money they pay fifteen cents for a night's lodging-; if they have uonc, they are expected, if they are able, to work one hour, which is considered adequate payment. There are but two persons regularly cm- ployocl, the matron and the forewoman of the workshop. Everything is done by tho inmates, in order to give them us much employment us possible. Civ- ing those who need work something 'lo do just now is one of the most difficult problems confronting those who h:ivc thu undertaking in charge. It, i.s not a case of fields white for the h;jT'vo^i.ars \vith few or nu I:Lboron;, but of \Y:I i'tin^ 1 - hiliOi'UT.s with sc;u-oc-'ly a .sin- p;]o fii.'ld in wiiioh thi'.y can work. Aside from tho bath, which iuvs a.l- rendy 'been .spoU'cn of. there-i.s nothing required of the. lodgers excepting that they shall retire at ten o'clock and leave Ihe house not later than nine c'ukHik in l.hc morning-, and that each one shiill wait on herself and take care of her own bed and her part of the room us lonjj as she remains. A 'HI rrcful record of everyone who at any tiwe has been an inmate is kept, and some of these accounts are as pathetic as they are interesting. One woman, who came to Chicago from Kansasi City to look for her husband was quite crazed at finding herself alone, almost destitute and friendless. She was taken to the home and cared for until she could care for herself. The officials at all the depots know of this lodging house, and many a woman, who would otherwise be likely to hare a most hapless time, is sent here until CASTOR IA for Infants and Children.

There is an emergency fund which, is drawn upon in case of necessity, so that no one is left uncared for. There is also an' arrangement by which any woman who wishes to do so can work a half hour for what is known as a European breakfast, which consists of rolls and a cup of coffee, or an hour for an American brea.kfast, with meat and potatoes. In addition to the sleeping rooms there is a pleasant sitting-room, where there are papers and books. As a rule, the books arid papers are scarcely glanced at during the time the lodgers are gathered in the sitting-room, as they are, •with almost no exception, a gregarious company, who love best of all to exchange experiences. The work shop connected with the lodging house for xvomen is a lizbt place where v.-omun arc sivcn employment at fifty cents a day when work can be obtained. All sort* of plain household sewing arc done to order. Efforts are now being made by Mrs. Edwin U.Ecan, Miss Jane Addams. of IIul! House social settlement, Mrs. W. H. Tyler, Dr. Sarah llackctt Stevenson and other prominent Chicago women to raise funds for a building which will be especially suited to their purposes and will be in every particular a model lodging house and work shop. A portion of the fund for this purpose is now in hand, and it seems assured that at no distant day a model shop, where all sorts of work will be done and a large number of machine women will bu employed, will be an accomplished fact. It is proposed in connection with this workshop to put goods on the market warranted to be made under hygienic conditions, such ^ as do not e.xist in tho sweatshops where most ready-made garments are made. Arrangement;; are also being made to form consumers' leagues throughout the country which will stand pledged to buy no goods made in sweatshops. Thus, "the model lodging house and workshop." which was established only six months ago, promises to be the beginning of a far-reaching- and important movement as well as a temporary shelter for self-helping women who, for any reason, are for the time being without a home.

A moment's pause, a silence falLs on the chattering- crowd, says the Gentleman's Magazine. Then, affrighted with their second's fear, they sway onward through a rocky gallery. Rock on cither side of them, rock above them; here bare and arid, there slimy with oozing- water and foul growtt 18 . The passage broadens out, it narrows, and ever and ever there is the black line on the roof that marks the road. Suddenly a black shadow on the loft or to the riirht. The eve plung-es into the depths of the side roads, and recoils aghast at their mysterious gloom. The lights file on. A thin glitter seams a dark gap with a flickering, broken line of light. "Ah!" says the guide. "Yes, a chain." Still forward, the shadows to right and left grow in size; some hate a sentry silently guarding their obscurity from fash obtrusion; where there is no sentry there is a chain. A sudden check from in front breaks the continuity of the forward movement. We move on again, and lo! the rocks on either hand contract, change color, break out into the grewsome design of a symmetrically built wall of bones and skulls. From the level of our heads doxvn to the level of our feet skull rests upon skull and leans back against the myriad bones behind. The shivering candlelight falls with uneqnal rays upon the formal tiers; it flashes coldly upon the grinning 1 teeth, penetrates the mortarless crannies of the wall, and ever shows bone of many, shapes and curves. STow it lights up a rent in some skull—a ghastly, jag-jjed wound which haunts one with the thought of foul murder. Anon it shimmers with erratic play on the trickling water that, pursuing its silent way from year to year, lias crusted 'with a smooth gloss the skull beneath. • In liic u.'iiversily of Wisconsin Jastvow has au instrument called tbo- initomato.srraph, which shows very clearly and precisely the imtomatio • movements of tho band. It consists merely of a piece of glass- resting- on three movable metal feet; or, in otimr words, it is a small carriage- which will shift its position at the- slightest movement. At the end is a needle fixed vertically, and in contact with a roll of paper covered with a layer of lampblack. If the apparatus moves the movement ia- traced on the paper by the needle. Both paper and needle are hidden by a.. screen. Prof. Jastrow tells you to rest your hand upon the glass and keep it perfectly still This appears quite easy; but when you think that your hand is quite motionless you (iiid to your surprise that the needle is tr.ichjg lines on. the paper! The fact i.s, you cannot keep your hand still; unconsciously and invisibly it moves with .\our thoughts. Look at that pair of scales; watch how the rod goes this way and that way as the scales move. Now look at the black paper; you will find that your hand has- been moving exactly in agreement with, the movement of the rod. The Migration of Rat*. The captain of one of the great steamers which ply between New Orleans and the Central American ports- estimates that every steamer sailing' away from Xew Orleans carries away with it from 300 to *00 rats which never come back. What this means will bo seen by supposing that there are twenty steamers engaged in the fruit trade, and that each makes on an average twenty trips a 'year; this would make 400 steamer departures. If each steamer took away from 200 to 300 rats on each trip at least 100,000 rats would bo carried away yearly. If each of the other ships that come to New Orleans should carry away 200 rats a trip, the total yearly exodus would be 300,000. A] am In am In Wail Paper. The uses of aluminum do not seem to have been exhausted yet. It is now coming into use in the decoration of wall papers, many beautiful conceptions being shown, in which this metal is a conspicuous figure. In floral striped effects the motives are printed on beautifully embossed grounds, which gives a burnished effect to the aluminum that is very desirable. An effective arrangement of daisies and fern leaves around the metal line is said to make a choice decoration for parlor or bedroom. The use of aluminum with colors, with or without the addition of gold, is spoken of as another special feature of this new class of papers. A HARD THING It It Almott TO DO.
