When Mrs. James Brown Potter lost her wardrobe by the fire in Capetown her chief regret was that there were no reporters around who could do justice to the occasion and describe the lost treas- nres. Miss Effi!

The Conkling name baa by no means dipappeared from New York politics. In tho present assembly on the republican aide are the two nephews of the distinguished senator, Howard and Alfred R. Conkling. The latter represents a New York city district and the former Warren county. Alfred is tbe better known of the two among legal, literary and scientific people, but Howard IE, said to be the better politician of the practical sort. Last fall Howard Conkline 1 , who has been living like a recluse in Warren county some dozen years, told tho republicans there that he did not seek an assembly nomination, yet if nominated he would make the democracy of the north woods howl. He traveled by wagon hundreds of miles making a personal canvass and won by 46 votes. Both the Conklin^fs would be of tenor heard fiom were tho assembly republican. » * * Sarah Bernhardt.is thus severely criti- cised by Tourgenief, tbe great Russian novelist: "She is gifted by nature with a beautiful voice and has studied at a good school, but she is without real feeling and without the artistic temperament. Her walk is like that of a hen. She is a , mimic. The motions she makes with her hands I must confess are piquant, but her whole acting is redolent of the boulevard." * * * Chester Roach, who was born in the Allegheny county almshouse seventy-five yoars ago, and who tramped with his parents through western New York for years, died in Minnesota last week, and left an estate of $400,009. He made his first money as a tramp tinker, and invested his 'earnings in Minneapolis real estate. * * » Mrs.,John A. Logan is suffering froai a fall caused by the collapse of a camp stool. She has slightly injured her spine, and i; now confined to her room, not seriously hurt but, sufficiently so to make her friends very anxious. * * » Bernard Domecq, who died recently in Bayonne, treasured a coin that was given him at the time of tbo siege of that city in 1814. He was then thirteen years old and the money was given him by tho duke of Wellington for holding tho latter's horse a few minutes. * * * The hopes of many Bavarians that death was about to relievo them of a mad king, have proved vain. The latest reports say that King Otto is physically comparatively well, although his mental condition is as gloomy as ever. * * * The eldest daughter of Boulanger is engaged to be married soon. She lives with her mother in Versailles. Tbe youngest daughter has been the wife of Captain Oriant for several years, and is with her husband in Tunis. * # * Thomas Smith, a millionaire land owner of Detroit, kept a dairy most of his life and laid up wealth. He was already three score and ten when he decided to marry again. Bis bride, who is a little over a fourth of his age, now lives in a luxurious separate establishment, while the nonagenarian is a paralytic and lives at the old dairy, * * * General Budd Grubb in his City Troop uniform and his bride, late "the Rose of Lisburn," in her fresh Irish beauty and new French dresees, are said to be shaking the social foundations of the aristocracy of Madrid. The four hundred have even dared, it is whispered, to speak of the American minister as "old canary seed." * * * The daughter of John Brown, ofOssa- watomie, Mrs. Ruth Thompson, who resides in California, is in quite straight- eted circumstances, and one oE her friends is tr)ing to help her and her family by selling for her some of her father's autographs.

Bairels and casks are now successfully turned out from the tree—that is, without the wood having to be cut up into numerous staves. By this method, which is known as the Oncken sy»tem, the tree stem is first sawn into lengths to suit that of the cask to be made, and these lengths are boiled for about three hours in a closed vi-ssel, which renders the wood soft, a current of electricity being also passed thiough the water during the, boiling process. The log is taken from the boiler to the cutting machine—in which it is fixed as in a luvhe, and brought up againfita lontr, broad cutting blade— the log iy revolved, the knifrt automatically appro/iches it, and the sheet of wood passes out out of the rear of the mac'aine through an opening in the frame just at tbe edge of the ula jo, as in a ' pkne. Tbe sheet of wood, hays the Now York sun, is drawn frnm the, machine on to a table, where it is cut i'lto length" suitable f• r the diameter of the barrel; the lengths are taken to u grooving machine, and groovec nuar the eriges f «• reieiving the head anc bottom of tue cask; the wood is now pu into another machine, which cuts lonp narrow, V-p'ece->, or gussets, out of the edyes at intervals, which give the necessary double taper to the cask The sheet of wood are finally formed up into a cylin der, and the b'isttivo hoops driven on b the machine, there being thutt only on stave in the cask, and consequently, oul one joint. The sheets of wood can rec-iiv any degree of thinness. Hniuc Iu Onlri Hnct XVhext. Bulletin 22 of the Kansas Experimen station gives the result of experiments t prevent smut in o;it« and wheat.

Treatment of the seed with ho water or with potassium sulphide prevent thesmu'iind increases tbe yield. The lonse t ,mut ot wh--at was considerable in 1891 on some of the plots on the college farm. Fifty-four trials with various fungicides did not furnish decisive evidencd favorable in any case.
