High winds are disastrous to crops And fruit trees, and tho strong northerly bfeefces of winter, blowing directly upon exposed shrubs, trees and winter crops, commit a great amount of damage every fear In all parts of the country. Nature protected her garden by surrounding it With forest trees, which are able to ward off the cold and winds. Farmers must imitate nature in this respect, and timber screens should be Constructed on tho north and west sides of every farm. A good wind break of trees will save an endless amount of trouble and damage. Even if tho tempests are not strong enough to destroy the crops they aro nearly always violent enough to destroy the grass, corn and grain down so that it is difficult for It over to raise Its head Again properly. A good wind break will sometimes make a difference of 50 per cent. In tho value of a field of grain, grass or corn. This repeated every year for a quarter of a century would make an item Mitch as would make any farmer open his eyes with astonishment. But better than all, wind breaks aro Invaluable to the fruit growers. Tho farther north wo go the more Important they become, but oven In sunny Florida a screen of pine trees Is considered a groat protection to an orange or luinon grove. Orange land that Is properly screened by trees brings a considerably higher sum than that which lays exposed to tho free sweep of the norlhorn winds. Poach trees can bo raised successfully much farther north than many Imagine, by protecting them properly from tho cold winds of winter. They may perhaps not bo Injured during the bearing season, but tho cold winds of winter froo/.o their roots, and so chill them they sometimes never recover. In planting screens It should bo understood that they aro lo bo erected on tho Bides across which tho prevailing winds swoop. This is usually north or northwest, but .different directions must bo taken into consideration for tho trees that aro to be protected. .Screens for grain and Hold crops aro simply to pro- vent tho high winds from blowing thorn down during the growing season. Tho strongest winds either come from the north, west or south, and wind breaks placed on those sides will amply answer all purposes. Fruit trees In the north aro to bo protected from tin) cold winds of winter, and honco screens must bo placed on the northerly exposure. The same holds true of Florida and tho (Southern Slates, but thorn Is an Intermediate section of country where tho Injurious winds come from tho oast. In tho great poach and cherry districts of the middle Atlantic States the prevailing winds aro iroin Iho oast, swooping in from tho ocean, laden with a salty moisture in tho spring of tho year that Is very Injurious to the poach, cherry, and oven apple and pear blossoms.— S. W. Chambers, in Praettcal. ordinary cellar. Ono pint fresh-slaked time-of a creamy consistency, half-p'lnt coarse salt ( three gallons fresh water; stir well together, lot Settle; when clear \ It Is ready for use. Place the eggs on ' end In a clean stone jar, fill within about an Inch and a half of tho top, dip over them tho clear brine sufficient to cover, I lay several thicknesses of cloth oil top of ' the eggs, smear It with some of the' creamy paste at tho bottom of tho jar of brine, fold back tho edges of the cloth, not letting It extend over tho rim of tho ' Jar. Cover with tight-fitting lid, or, soVernl thicknesses of paper tied on" closely. It Is best to use small Jars, as frequently disturbing tho brine and ox- posing It to ale causes It to deteriorate. In making tho brine It Is Important that the proportions given bo carefully observed; If tho lime Is too strong tho eggs will have a cooked appearance; If too much salt tho shells will become thin, but If just right It will keep tne eggs Ir good condition for several years. | Bran and salt Is a good, simple pra* sorvallvo. Dry tho bran in an oven, to destroy possible germs, thon mix with equal quantity of coarse, dry salt, pack tho eggs In clean, odorless vessels, In alternate layers With tho mixture, beginning and ending with tho salt and bran, and filling tho spaces between the eggs with It. Cover closely and sot In a cool, dry place. Salt tends to absorb moisture; eggs packed In It aro liable to tasto salty and have their yolks lumpy; tho bran obviates this difficulty lo some degree. Where salt Is used alone or with bran tho eggs will remain good If stored In a dry place and tho air excluded from them as much as possible. Coating oges Is such a tedious process that few care to undertake It; however, If tho boating bo perfect and tho right conditions observed In storing,'the'eggs will keep for a long tiino. Other ith-. portant points, in relation to packing eggs, are: If exposed they absorb foreign odors. Once I put some frames of eggs In a cold storage room .'.with some muskmelons; tho eggs became decidedly ilav- orod with, the,melons,, and wore not at all appetizing. I have always packed "small ond down;" lhoy,in|ght, for all I know, keep as well, or bettor, largo ond down. Removed- from .conditions In which they were -stored, eggs become stale more quickly than fresh ones; hence only enough should bo taken out each time for immediate use. A hint as to collar, i tho usual plane for storing eggs: By closing the cellar windows in tho morning before tho outside air becomes warmer than that in tho cellar, and The solutions may then be used by dipping tho hose, Which Should bo of cotton, Into the liquid and drying them before wearing.

The worst cases are said to be generally cured after such treatment twice a day for one or two Weeks. When tho feet aro continually to bo exposed to extreme cold, a pad of curled hair, shaped like tho solo of the foot and worn Inside tho stocking, is recommended. Hints to Uousohoopern.

QBEASE spots may be taken out with weak ammonia In water; lay white paper over and iroir with a hot iron. IN using yolks of eggs, it must be remembered that a broken egg must bo i closely covered in tho dish In which It Is kept until desired for use. i IT Is convenient to have an Iron holder attached by a long string to the band of tho apron when cooking; It saves burnt lingers or scorched aprons, and is always at hand.

The latter is a shajrgy hound and knows his business Cjiiitu as well as his Broadway rival does. lie. also, has a habit of whining to uttract attention, but the act that makes him famous is the wanner in which he goes through a crowd.

A correspondent of ttio.Tlmcs-Demoorat ofl'ors the following explanation of tho , cause of tho cracking of fruit, which occasions so much loss to fruit growers: | Almost every one has noticed that i juicy fruits, such as plums, poaches, i grapes, tomatoes, etc., will bo cracked by rain. The phenomenon has been of painfully frequent occurrence tho past season, and the losses to some growers have, on this account, been heavy. Tho cracking has boon explained In various ways; but we think It is properly attributed by Bossingault to osmose. If a bladder tilled with syrup bo Ira- inorsod In a vessel of water will 'if tor a while become swoot; tho syrup passes through the membrane of tho bladder Into tho water, and correspondingly tho walor passes into tho interior of tho bladder. Hut this ontorchango is not an equal one; tho lighter liquid—tho water —passes in many times more rapidly than tho heavier liquid—tho syrup— passes out. The consequence will be thai tho bladder will bo dlslonded lo its utmost, and at length burst. This is a general law, that where two liquids of unequal densities aro separated by a membrane, whether animal or vegetable, they will onterchango, tho weaker liquid passing more rapidly than tho denser one, and this will bo kept up until the liquid upon both sides of tho membrane is of the same density. A ripe lomalo or plum may bo considered in the condition of tho bladder of syrup. The rich juices of the fruit correspond to tho syrup, and tho thin membrane which forms tho skin of tho fruit represents tho bladder. When tho ripe fruit is kept constantly wol by a rain ' osmoso lakes pluco, and tho water pass- Ing through into the fruit distends tho skin, which not being very strong is soon ruptured. If the fruit wore to bo surrounded by a liquid denser than its juico, it would, instead of expanding and breaking up, shrink, and tho skin become shrivelled. When strawberries or blackberries are sprinkled with sugar a syrup is soon formed by some of the juico of tho fruit, and, this being considerably denser than the juice of tho berries, they are soon dubby and shrivelled. dellors may bo nicely cleaned by soaking thon in hot walor, lo which a little sal soda has boon added.

A PHYSICIAN, who is also an oiithust aslic cyclist, believes that it would be bettor for young folks if riding tho wheel wore postponed until the body approached maturity. Tho possible dangers resulting from too early riding would bo "a derangement of tho conformation of tho frame-work of tho body." As, for Instance, a kind of riding which lias a tendency to throw the body forward in a bent position will in time produce a permanent stoop. Another tendency is to overdevelop the largo muscles in tho fore part of the thigh. , TIIK KITC1I1SN. Ginger Simps.

A year ago a man in San Francisco sold a lot of hind in a then unbuilt suburb, A Chinaman had been using it as a garden. Uhe land was sandy with no more than 890x^50 feet surface.

Despite the high rent, he was making money, says the Alta Californian. Rev, Mr. Vrooman, now Chinese interpreter in the California courts, who was for twenty-live years a missionary at Canton, and was subsequently among the Chinese in Melbourne, said that he knew of two Chinese in the latter place who make a living fop themselves and a horse from a quarter of an acre of land. , In addition to thus supporting themselves and a horse they each sent $60 yearly to their relatives at home. Chinese now rent at least 5,000 acres of fruit and bottom lands within a radius of 100 miles of San Francisco, for which they pay from four to ten times what a white lessee could afford to pay for the same.

When the maneuvers were originally arranged it was decided that swimming should be an especial leatnre of them, but this portion of the program was afterward abandoned.
