AGRICULTURAL HINTS. A WELCOME. f ? 1 ? wi "ff Poem WHS road by R 0 v. Q. W Hail, -benefactors of our race, Of brain and brawn and honest face, A i^°? t ?, y , llnr l | * e'adly string And join this h&oi-ty welcoming From ovcry portion of the land From prairio mount, and ocean strand, From where the blue St. Lawrence flows lo wncro the yellow orango grows, From Chesapoake's storied harbor bay To that of golden Monterey, From tossclcd Uelds on boundless plains 10 where the pearly cotton reigns, From soil whiaio first our fathers trod To soil Just ns it camo from God, You conic witbHUought and purpose true, Hlght royally if e welcome you I You come like spring whoso magic wand To vorduro wcoa the wintry land, tike sun-lclse^l sail from o'er the sea with wpicea o; blest Araby. Vou stand, not as the Pilgrims stood. On barren rook, 'mid duslcy wood; You wake not in some dread surprise , To meet the gleam of savage eyes. The wilderness has passed away, The gloomy night has turned to day, And through this fair Edenio bloom With songs of triumph you have come. And here you come to represent A land of freedom and coutout, Tho brightest, fairest 'neath the sun Since history Its page begun. For since bleat Paradise was lost, And man 'to sink or swim was tossed, No land, no time has equaled this ; No passing hour so full of bliss. And let it be forever known That freemen sitting on the throne Of learning, Justice and of State, Have made the Nation good and groat. That industry and thought combined Hnvo to the past Its dead consigned, And placed the livlngln the van, And unlffed the race of man. This brotherhood of thought and toll Has wreathed with flowers the virgin soil From north to south, from oast to west, Anil wade the world a welcome guest. . Anns wide we fling to all who come To mnko our land their chosen home; Whai'ov their color or their speech; But, loyalty we ask of each. One flag, the "stars and stripes," to float; One lan'd, however parties vote; One Jaw, and that the people's will; One Impulse, moving upward still. And yet, there is a primal force— The soul of empire and .its source, Anil otio to which all others bow— The silent gliding of the plow. Of alt things this lies at the base; As this shall fall so falls the race; Aa thin succeeds, so all things tend Forever toward a higher end. The man who turns the generous sod Walisa olcsest with his maker, God. In fait.i he looks to Him who gives Tho elements by which he lives. To Him who makes the seasons new, Who sends the sunshine, rain and dew ; Who broods o'er orchard and o'er field, T'.iat to His smile their fruitage yield. There's purity in every breath; Thore'H purity above, beneath; There's purity where'er he goes, And pure the blood that in him flows. And so he makes tho-desert bloom; Tho uir floatS soft with sweet perfume; Iji-j products on our board are spread; Tlu» feathered songsters, too, are fed. Not harvests only does ho bring, Utut cities rise and spindles sing; The iron horse and palace car Follow the gliding of his share. And from the farms strong men are born Tho ijjgbost places to adorn, And purity of brain and heart They bring to council hall and mart. A 'id if our cities we shall save From rank corruption's yawning grave, \Vhoi-c vica and awful vortex swirls, 'Twill bo by country boys and girls. 'O, for the full and throbbing vein, Tho honest heart, the thinking brain, Tho buoyant stop, the sparkling eye, And, charm of all, simplicity I O, welcome then, thrice welcome all! Muy riuhost blessings on you fall 1 May vi'isdtim, concord, and good-will Like dew of Hoavou on each distill. And while success you seek to gain Let ciuil despondency be slain; courage true enter the lists, A noble band of optimists. A Milking Devloo. Tho air is swarming with flies, bringing a return of the vexations with wiiich milkers are all so familiar. The jj-lan shown d*»es not raoan that one has ^x> hitch the sow by the tail to hold her while ho milks. The device is designed to ho used in the stables to keep the cow's tail out of the pail and out of the 'miller's face, whinh is usually the second place she wishes to put it It is r.wle of a small piece oil hickory with a lon<j. deep notch sawed in one end. A clinohod nail or screw keeps it from splitting further. The long hair or brush of the tail is slipped between the pronprs, and the ring is slipped over the ends, thus securely fastening it. 4 MILKING DKVICE. The ring is fastened to some part of the atiok with a string long enough to permit its being P ufc in place readily. Strapped to the upper end of the stick la a snap into which is slipped another riug at the end of a small rope attached to the wall behind the cow. When the milking is finished, with one hand slip the lower ring off the prongs and the whole will drop back against the side of the stable, and the tail be free. Swall ropes, with rings at the end, are f»«tenod along the back of the stable l«td way between two cows, one, answer- Jag &"' both- The fastener is unanapped »i»d moved from ring to ring as needed. I'bie is valuable wot only a* an aid in fly-time, but as » «»uae of additional cleanliness, wfeieh at «fee greater benefit TO TRAIN TOMATOES. Dlfltefent Methods o f Tretllg Work, AH «l Which Aro Good. Growing tomatoos for the canftinf factories at six to eight dollars per ton excludes oven the possibility of profitable trcllising. The grower for market who receives from one dollar upwards per bushel may find it advisable to put at least some brush or litter of some kind around his vines, in order to keep the fruit from contact with tho soil. Perhaps it may oven pay him to put up a simple trellis such as shown in Fi#. l. This method was suggested to us by Mr. John M. Stahl, who believed that trelllsing a patch in this manner will increase the amount of crop to tho full extent of paying for material and erection of trellis, while the better quality of the fruit resulting from such treatment will be clear gain. The trellis consists simply of a row of stakes at a reasonable distance apart on each side of the row of plants, and strands of wire strung along tho posts, at say eight inches apart from each other. A more dotailed description was furnished us by Mr. Stahl, but our printers, unfortunately, have lost or mislaid the manuscript. One of the State experiment stations reports satisfactory results from the use of a trellis put up like the one described with this exception, that pieces of six-inch Board in single line, wer« FIG. 3. substituted for the posts, and the wires stapled to. the edges on each side. The home gardener can well afford to put up some sort of trellis for his comparatively few plants, even if he did not expect any other advantage from it but the greater attractiveness and neatness of the patch. Any thing that adds renewed interest to the-garden is a great gain. A simple way of treating tomato vines is to train them to a single polo or stake, say eight feet high, and keep the plants trimmed to single stem. Soft bands should be used for tying, and particular attention paid to give the fruit- clusters some support by tyingio tho INTERESTING READING. GAnntET,r,i5 SAND, famous Goofge San-i's granddaughter, is a very hand* some girl, with big black eyes and a profusion of heavy black tresses. FIFTEEN MILLIONS of dollars is mentioned as tho value of tho art treasures accumulated in Hilford Houso by Sir Richard Wallace, and it is rumored that all this will go, under tho will, to the English Nation. THE telephone must have a new field of usefulness scored for it. Sir Humphrey do Trafford, near Manchester, has, perhaps, the finest kennels in England, tho konnolman's house adjoining them. From each kennel a telephone arrangement leads to tho kennel-man's room, BO that when any dog is noisy at night the keeper can 'speak to him so aa to bo heard withrout leaving his room. B. DEAN, of Jonesboro, Qa., has a block from a garden gate post that was hewn out and placed in the ground in 1804. Ho made a visit to his sister in Baldwin County, and it was at her homo that he secured the block from tho aged yet serviceable post. Tho post was hewn out of a light wood tree, and is perfectly sound to-day. Mr. Dean says it is good for another eighty-six years and perhaps much longer. THIS is a scientific description of what nappens when you light a fire: The phosphorus on tho match is raised by friction to a temperature of 150 degrees Fahrenheit, at which it ignites; itraises the temperature of tho sulphur (if it is a sulphur match) to 500 degrees, when the sulphur begins to burn; the sulphur raises the heat to 800 degrees, when the wood takes up tho work and produces a temperature of 1,000 degrees, at which tho coal ignites. WHEN whispering it is said that stam- erers rarely show any impediment in speech. On this fact a now method of treatment has been advocated, which is as follows: In tho first ten days speaking is prohibited. This will allow rest to the voice, and constitutes the preliminary state of treatment. Duri-ng the next ten days speaking is permissible in tho whispering voice; and in the course of tho next fifteen days the ordinary conversational tone may be gradu- I ally employed. IT appears from some carefully EO corded data on the subject that there is required about as much energy to convert water into ice as to evaporate it into steam, for the same amount of heat is found to bo absorbed, when, for example, seventeen pounds of ice are melted as in the evaporation of ten pounds of water into steam, about as much as a pound of the best coal can furnish. A liquid that will boil under a pressure of sixty pounds in the heat of a tropical sun should make as much use of a cako of ice for power purposes as could be obtained in midwinter from two-thirds its weight in coal, at least so say the experts. MR. ROBERT J. BUKDETTE is an inveterate joker, and by no means confines his humorous writing to the articles prepared for publication. Some time ago he received a letter enthusiastically praising him for his verses beginning: "Out on the borders of moonshine land." He sat down and wrote a letter of several pages, in which he gratefully acknowledged tho praise of his correspondent, and flattered the latter's taste by saying that he always thought himself that those were pretty good verses, and after signing his name wrote tho following postscript: "I didn't write those verses. They were written by my friend, James Whitcomb Eiley." « ALL cases of weak or lame back, backache, rheumatism, will find relief by wearing one of Carter's Smart "Weed and Belladonna Backache Plasters.

The plants need, not be more than three feet apart in the row. When in full growth, and loaded with fruit in all stages of development, a row of tomato plants thus trained will always attract attention, and may prove pne of the "sights" of the garden. Other simple styles of trellis are shown in Figures 3 and 8. The former is made hy setting three stages, five or six feet high, in a circle around each plant, and fastening a few barrel hoops to them as shown in engraving. The other consists of two uprights, and three or four cross stlotca or Blats nailed to them. There are many other ways of making simple trellises; and the gardener may use whatever his own fancy or ingenuity may dictate.—Popular Gardening.
