Mushrooms are very nutritious. This is contrary to the idea of those that know nothing of them. Most people suppose, because of their rapid growth, that they are unsubstantial in texture and can possess little of food value, On the contrary, it is doubtful if there be any other vegetable possessing a like amount of nutriment. The statement is made that mushrooms possess as much nutriment, sometimes mised with & small propot- tion of loam. The greater part should, howetefj consist of, manure.

This is Ipubtless a fact, as mushrooms take in pkygen and throw off carbonic id gas, as do animals, while nearly ,11, vegetables do the opposite; that is, irow off oxygen and take in carbonic Icid gas. To those living within easy reach of the culture of mushrooms pre- a means: of revenue. The de- [man~d**!rerr~-mushrooms is large and prices are high. France supplies most af the mushrooms used in Amemcan lotels and restaurants, and even then banned goods have to be used. With In increase in the supply of fresh lushrooms would come an increase in IB demand. It seems strange that Lmerican gardeners have so long neg- ected growing this delicious vege- If ranee cav«s and cellars are used fcensively for the growing of mush- oms. Most of our farmers have [lars, either in houses or barns, that suited , for this vegetable. A few liuisites are necessary: the cellar puld be warm, dry and dark. Drafts jeans of doors and windows are to /avoided, where the draft would borne immediately over the mush- beds. .- Temperature and moisture should 'be uniform, from day to day, as nearly as possible. Sudden fluctuations of temperature or of moisture are not desirable. These are, however, but the requisites ' of a good cellar, and therefore any one that has a really good cellar can grow mushrooms. In some parts of the east where tho market gardeners are beginning tp grow mushrooms on a large scale, cellars are being built fpr this purpose alpne.

If the shed is without a window) so much the better, as darkness is desired, if there is no room on the floor a shelf may be constructed on a side or in a corner. This has the advantage of being out of the reach of rats and mice. The beds should be made and treated the same as those constructed upon the floor or ground, and are said to be as productive. These beds will not do in winter after water will freeze in the sheds, unless they are carefully covered each night It is best to use them only for summer and fall production. The methods we have mentioned above may be easily adopted by nearly all readers of the, FARMER'S REVIEW; The growing of mushrooms in green houses applies to comparatively few— those that have green houses, or that .desire to conduct regular mushroom, houses.' Hot houses are generally too warm for the mushrooms to do well in them. Green houses are better, as the temperature is more suitable for the growth. Nearly all green houses are Suitable, and the beds can be placed in parts that are not used for other things, as under benches. As most plants can not grow in the dark, dark places can be the better utilized for this purpose. In cool weather the beds may be covered with straw or old carpets to keep the temperature from getting too low. Above we show an illustration of a house made especially for growing mushrooms. ,It is a sort of green house, but no., glass enters into its construction, being unnecessary and also a detriment. Tke building is especially designated for A coMfibv of* to wtf, .'^p^W* SHELF BET) IN STABLE. growing mushrooms throughout, the year without the use of artificial heat It is built with the idea of rend^iBg? it independent of outside atmospheric conditions. An excavation, is first made like a small cellar, and the dirt taken from this excavation is subsequently used for banking up. The walls are built hollow, thus giving a dead air space, and the house is banked up to the eves of the roof. The roof may be thatched with reeds, slabs op anything that will keep out air and rain. A hollow space maybe left in the roof to be filled with sawdust. The floor may be of burnt clay, or any material that will give >a dry, hard surface. Drains may be necessary to keep the place free of water, The illustration below, shows three mushroom beds in an open garden in Paris. This represents winter culture in that city, where the temperature is not generally so low that the beds can not be protected. In the cut the beds are cov.ered with old, mats, carpets, etc., and held in place with stones, bricks and boards. The beds are oov» ered a,t nights and cold 'days. Usually the method followed is this: The hovs,e manure is eollected.for several weeks, before it is tg be used, All chips, and rubbish are taken out, and, »]«?§ is^tben, pJaoed in heaps two 1 £ tfe49fc'*n4 pressed down wit}; p,fork, The bed is stajnpbd down, " ~ . From the Chattanooga, Tenii.^ fresn. &o county official in East Tennessee is better known and more highly e ; S' teemed than Mr. J. C. Wilson, Circuit Court Clerk of Ehea County at Dayton, the-- home of Mr. Wilson. He erijby's the confidence and respect of all classes, and in the business community his word is as good as his bond. Just how Mr. Wilson is receiving the heartiest congratulations from his numerous friends because 6f the restoration to robust health of his estimable wife, Who has for years been a helpless invalid. Mrs. Wilson's high standing in society, and her many lovable traits of character have won her a host of friends, and her Wonderful recovery has attracted wide-spread attention. As the Press was the medium of bringing to the invalid lady's attention the remedy that has effected her remarkable cure, a reporter was sent to Dayton to interview Mrs. Wilson, in order that the general public might have the benefit of the sufferer's experience and be made aware of the treatment that wrought such amarvel ous change in her condition. The reporter was welcomed at the Wilsott home, and the enthusiastic lady with becoming reluctance gave the history > of her affliction and the manner in which she was relieved: "Yes," said Mrs. Wilson, "I was for 8 years an invalid with one of the most distressing afflictions woman can suffer. For 8 years I moped around, dragging myself with difficulty and pain out of bed. My little ones went untrained and were greatly neglected, While I looked listlessly and helplessly at the cheerless prospect before me and them. I suffered the most intense pains in the small of my back, and these seemed even greater in the region of the stomach, extending down to the groins. -I suffered agony sleeping or awake. Despair is no word for the feeling caused by that dreadful sensation of weakness and helplessness I constantly experienced. "I was treated for my trouble by several local physicians, but they were able to give me only temporary relief by the use of sedatives and narcotics. I had almost given up all hope of ever securing permanent relief, when I saw an account in the Press of a cure which Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had effected. I decided to try them, as I knew the lady who had been cured and had great confidence in her statement. I began to take the pills in October, 1893, and in two months I was doing light housework and attending to the children without any bad effects , or weakness, such as I had formerly experienced. Hitherto, I had been unable to retain any food, but now my appetite grew, stronger, and with it came back that .old, , healthy ,and hearty tone of the stomach. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured me. and I assure you the cure has brought a great change in bur home. ' I can now. rejoice in my husband!s success, for I ; feel that I have something to'live for, Who has a better right to feel this than a mother? .One thing more. I have recommended these pills to, others, and many of the j women of Dayton have taken them | •with good results, and it is my greatest pleasure to recommend to every suffering woman a remedy that has done so much for me," An analysis proves that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People contain in a condensed form all the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and restore shattered nerves, They are an unfailing specific for such diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the after effects of la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions, that tired feeling resulting from nervous prostration; all diseases resulting from vitiated humors in the blood, such as scrofula, chronic erysipelas, etc. They are also a specific for diseases peculiar to females, such as suppressions, irregularities, and all forms of weakness. In men- they effect a radical cure in all cases arising from mental worry, overwork; or excesses of whatever nature, Dr. Williams Pink Pills for Pale People are now manufactured by the Dr, 'Williams' Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. Y,, and are sold in boxes (never in loose form by the dozen or hundred, and the public are cautioned against numerous imitations sold in this shape) at 50 cents a box, or six boxes for $3.50, and njay be had of all druggists, or direqt by mail from Dr. Williams' Medicine Cpwpany. 9F BANTER. tp, set in, bed, is all fgpls§<a 97^, £#?§> n to put tb$' waftur^ Ife&t - Y as in the "first making 1 !§, an4 ijbe ,o», Buskin— Is Cfissius a good "Hamlet?"

Paris is shaken with thiftfe Ove* the tribulations of a commissary of j police, fays a correspondent bE the Philadelphia Telegraph. A certain lady went to the Bon Marche the other day and stole a quantity of valuable lace. She was arrested forthwith and turned over to the police. Tho culprit was invited to dine that evening, and begged the authorities to let her notify her expectant host, but as the authorities are not tender to thieves they calmly ignored her request. That evening M. Prelat, tho police official from the left bank of the Seine, hired a cab and Went to the guilty woman'e rooms. There he found so matiy etoleft poods that he rummaged through tho entire place, and packing alt tho stolen effects in a big black trunk got his cabman to aid him in taking it down to tho carriage. The next morning the gentleman whose din- tier was spoiled by the absence of hie j fair guest called to sec what was tho matter. avatlingly. so tho concierge produced a pass key, and they both stood aghast at the terrible condition of j the department. The case was plain; a malefactor, probably an anarchist, had gone in on some pretext; the disorder of tho room denoted that she had fought desperately for her life, but he had murdered her and stuffed her corpse and all of tho valuables he could find into a i missing black trunk. Tho friend flew off wiih cries of despair to notify the police of the quarter of this awful crime. The concierge related the whole affair to a knot of curious bystanders which speedily expanded into a dense crowd. Tne police took down tho description of the criminal who stole the black trunk and the description of the cabman who drove a white horse, ordered the locks changed on the apartment so that no ono could enter without the knowledge of tho police, and then withdrew with dignity. Half an bout 1 later, while the crowd was still staring at the murder-stained house, the cab with the white horso drove up to tho door, and tho supposed murderer alighted. He was instantly denounced by the irate concierge, and being utterly unconscious 'of his own supposed misdeed, was nearly lynched by the furious mob before he sufficiently realized the situation to produce his police badge, when "the crowd respectfully dropped him. The unoffending cornissaire then found himself locked out of tho apartment, owing to the precautions of tho police,and was forced to send for his colleague to open the door for him. His search for stolen goods was successful, as he netted about $8,000 worth. The only people in Paris who did. not perceive the farcical side'of this situation are, first, M. Prelat,.who come near being lynched, and' was knocked about roughly by the mob ; for tho perpetration of a crime that T HE U. 5.
