It is not to be imagined that a general embargo could be laid upon trade between the north »nd the south, but at this time even · slight disturbance, a partial blockade, would do vast harm. The matter has already grown beyond the dimensions of a joke. Nor is the boycott a scheme of "rebels," as more than one republican journal has suggested. Hon. Thomas T. Crittenden of this city was the first to sugget that the election would bave the effect of reviving old: sectional differences. Of his loyalty there can be no question, for he ro3e out at the head of a union regiment. Now, from every part of the South, come the murmurs The men who raise the' objections are not politi*. cians, not sectionalists ; they are business men. The republicans should weigh well their action on this bill and be prepared to meet all the attendant responsibility. Its passage will certainly not be conductive to the welfare of trade. Then take the other point of view. It is even seriously questioned by many republicans men of the better class, the writers and thinkers of the party -whether the Lodge bill is so constructed as to be the pillar of tire by night and the cloud of smoke by day which is to show this country the vray out of. the political wilderness. It is much to be cioubteci whtther lieury Cabot Lodye is the Mcses of tbe party he represents or of the nation. There are those of Mr. Lodge's own political faitli who are inclined to the belief that he possesses many distinguishing marks of a Jonah. Mr. Lodge is to E great extent a theorist--a closet politician. His propositions rend well ; his deduc* tions are from premises which eviry one will concede are irresistible, but like the political economy of tbe college, they will not always bland the test of practicality. The passage of the Lodge bill means either the return to the terribly rifle clubs which were known prior to 1875, or the donation of the i white people of many southern states by an ignorant colored population. In the south the republicans have everything to gain and nothing to ED. CONSTITUTION: -I will give you a few : more items from this part of the moral yineyard.

UNDER tbe silver compromise bill passed by the republican cpngrees, tbe coinage of silver will cease July 1, 1891. ; As the lectioL for congress comes off in November of the same year it is safe to predict another ground swell in politics like that which followed the demonetization ol silver in 1873.

A r_.ra»ltle Pl»nt for Which Farmen Should Be on the Lookout. Mr. A. R. Birdsill, Colorado, sends us, says Farm and Fireside, a sprig of a. alfa covered with a delicate vine bearing a profusion of white flowers, accompanied with a note as follows: "Please tell me what the inclosed vine is. We found one little bunch of it growing in our alfalfa of last year's sowing. Is it bod to spread? Will it hurt stock to eat it?" The plant referred to is a species of dodder (cuscnta), and belongs to the natural order eonvolvulacete. It is t parasitic plan, and is only nourished by its terrestrial roots until it becomes established upon the host plant, after which its connection with the earth is broken, and it feeds upon the juices of the host plant.

If ono little spray will produce so many seeds, wha. number would a plant or a patch oJ jlants produce? The seeds (D) are ol ?ood size, and often escape the fan and lieve in preparing clover seeds for mar- let, and it is possible the plant in question was sown with the alfalfa. Destroy t.

There is but little opportunity during the winter to give bees attention, and ihe proper time to put them in shape is Luring the summer months. The Vmerican Agriculturist says the feeding Should all bs done before cold wcathei lets in, and they should bo settled in .heir winter quarters before real wintei s at hand. It often occurs that wintei overtakes us with colonies that lack tood. In such cases we can not possibly use sirup for food, as the weather is too cold for the bees to seal it over, and unsealed stores will not servo properly foi winter. Tha moisture which always arises from the bees in oold weather en- »rs the unsealed honey and dilutes it, making it very unwholesome. Our ohrj resort, therefore, for feeding in cold weather is to make candy and use it. This is a very good and healthful food f properly made and administered. It is made from granulated' sugar by melting it, adding a little water--no more than will thoroughly m»lt tht ragar--when it is boiled a few minutes and poured out into cakes or slates of hree or four pounds each. When cool his becomes very hard, almost like rock landy. In feeding this it is placed on rames just over the cluster of bees where they can have access to it at all lines. When in this position it receives he heat arising from the bees and they remain on it all the time. 'It is so hard nothing on a portion of tbe leg.

It very often happened that good catchers on the East coast bad two wlTM. Cases of more than two wUee were not known. The reason giTen for more than one wife was that one; wife oould not prepare the skins of the seals caught, and also that two women had to be used to pull th« boat.
