Born in the Seventh ward of New! lYbi-k City forty-si* years ago. the friends Of his youth were Thomas >V. Keene and 1 Pfaftk Cha&frau. We find Keene a star at the age of 25 and Norton in the flower of, fiafly manhood, the leading inan for Edwin! Booth at the fam&us Winter Garden Thea-j tef. He was starred with Lawrence Bar- 'fett early in the tOs, and alternated the! leadifig roles with Charles Thorne at the iVariety theater in New Orleans. JEarly in the Centennial year, in Louisville, Norton met our Mary Anderson, then a fair young girl who aspired for stage fame, took lier Ufldef his guidance and* as everybody knows, led her to fame. Mr. Norton is now the proprietor of the Grand Opera House in St. Louis, the t)u Queshe Theater, Pitts- bufg, and one of the stockholders in the 'American Extravaganza Company. | One afternoon early in Juno he hobbled into his New York office on Broadway and encountered his business manager. George (McManus, who had also been a rheumatic sufferer for two years, Norton Was sur-; prised that McManus had discarded hisi cane.,"Whocured you?" he asked. "Icured myself," replied McManus, "with Dv, Will- 1 iams' Pink Pills." | "I was encouraged by Mr. McManus' cure, and as a last resort 'tried the Pink Pills myself," said Mr. Norton to a Chronicle reporter. "You have known me for five years, and know how I have suffered. Why during the summer of 1898 I was on my back at the Mullanphy hospital, in this city, four weeks. I was put on the old sys- ,tem of dieting, with a view tQ clearing those acidulous properties in my blood that medical 'theorists say iis the cause of my rheu. mat ism. I left the hospital feeling stronger, but the first damp weather brought with it ithose excruciating pains in tho legs and [back. It was the same old trouble. After sitting down for a stretch of live minutes, 'the pains screwed my legs into a knot when I arose, and I hobbled as painfully as ever. (After I.had taken my first box of Pink Pills, 1 it struck me that the pains were less trou-j blesome. I tried another box,, and I began almost unconsciously to have faith in the; (Pink Pills. I improved so rapidly that I could rise after sitting at my desk for an jhour and the twinges of rheumatism that accompanied my rising were so mild that I scarcely noticed them. During the past two weeks we have had much rainy weather in St. Louis, But the Dampness 4as not had the slightest effect in bringing tiack, the rheumatism, which 1 consider ai sufficient and reliable test of the efficacy oi Pink Pills. I may also say that the Pink Pills have acted as a tonic on my stomach.' which I thought was well nigh destroyed by ; the thousand and one alleged remedies t consumed in the past five years." THE NORTHMOST MINE. r*V &•>*>'•- f. Located In Uncle Sam's Possessions Undor. the Midnight Sun. There was a man in Seattle lately who owns a mine located probably further north than any mine in the world. He is J. C. Green, and his . mine is called the Omalik mine. It is situated, on tho Fish river, in the extreme northwestern part of Alaska, near Golovnin bay, which is about .'sixty miles north of St. Michael's. To >f/ get a better^ idea of how far-north Mr. • f 'Green;,has gone in search of his-treasure,' the location of his mine is in latitude sixty-five degrees north,longitude ^164 degrees west, over 1,000 miles northwest of Sitka. , , Mr. Green got possession of his mine in 1881, and has spent about $100,000 in developing it. The mine itself is as unique as its location, being "solid metal." The ore is galena, seventy-five per cent of lead, carrying 143 ounces of silver to the ton and very little gold. Mr. Green generally spends his winters in California, chartering a ship every spring to carry his year's supply of stores and the miners he takes up with him to his northern Eldorado. He pays his men $75 a month and board, but they <io not receive . their wages until after the year's work r is done and the cargo of ore they have take,n from the mine has been brought "down to San Francisco and sold. They »',are then paid off and receive from ,$900 to $1,200 apiece, which comes to , them in a lump, for on Golovnin bay there Ave> no stores,, no saloons, and no .opportunity fop them to spend money if ftey wished to. The''natives, 'the Eskimos, are a peaceable intelligent people, and are ivery,.quiok to learn the ways and customs of the Americans.'

[Condensed from FARMERS' Rfivisw Sten Ogrftphic Repbft.] At the Iowa dairy convention A. X. Hyatt spoke on "Turnips." ,116 had been growing; turnips ever since he was a boy. In the summer of 1858 he worked by the month iot a farmer. The fafmei? gave him an acre of land, and Hyatt immediately planted it*vith foots, fie was given a certain amount of time ita which to Work his acre. Foi 1 the products, he 1-eceived $164.68« and this Was more than he received for his stinv mer's work With the farmer. The next year he raised 8300 worth of cabbages, and so he has gone on raising roots. By roots Mr. Hyatt means turnips. The more turnips he had fed to his stock, the more money he had made. The best ration for a cow is kindness. He believes in kindness to keep his cows happy, and turnips to keep them healthy. There is no crop that can be taken from the soil that will exhaust it so little as turnips. Q.—How did you raise those 2,000 bushels of turnips? A.—I began in July with two acres, t found they were very rich, and I made them very fine and put on some ashes and some hen house manure that had no weed seeds in it. The next spring it came on very wet and rained and rained and rained. I said to the more o* less pTJFplJfiii, t>ranche*d; feacfe branch bearing at its top a cluster of two to five SoiSiewhat haify, usually purplish spikes; leaves large, flat, roughish, usually ft large cluster of root leaves at the base of the stem; spikelets bf two sorts, one sessile and awne'd, the other stalked and awnless. ffhis grass may be known by its large puf* pie stems, not in dense bunches, and clusters of purplish, somewhat hairy spikes. It and some of its near rela» tives are sometimes called "Turkey* foot grass," because of the fancied ra» semblance of the clusters of spikes to a turkey's foot. It. is found oa rich prairie soil. In South Dakota It Is much more common, in the Siou* val- 1 ley region than elsewhere, but is gradually spreading to the westward. Some places along the Missouri river are already well covered by it. It is one of our most .important native grazing and hay producing grasses. Under ordinary conditions it produces an abundance of root leaves. Wheii the grass is cut before the stems become woody, stock eat them as readily as the leaves, It is Well worth pasturing in every possible way. A specimen analyzed gave the following air dry substance— water, 7.44; ash, 4.16; ether extract, 1.20; crude fibre, 33.88; crude protein, 4.26; nitrogen-free extract, 48.40; total nitrogen .68; albuminoid nitrogen, .67. Rotation of Crops. There is no doubt that rotation of crops is both wise and necessary. Practical experience has demonstrated its efficacy, and science discovers the reasons for the method. Our various u.gricult- ural crops differ more or less widely in the proportions of the different ele- THE BIG BLUE STEM. hired man, take the oxen and go over it if you can, and he did. I could do nothing with the seed but scatter it, which I did, The seed was rutabaga seed. I had the land well drained, and no water stood on it. The seed came up at once, and grew and grew and grew. It was too thick, Then I put on the drag and dragged out a part of it, I spent a dav looking for weeds. At harvest time I had a good crop, As to the cost, it was about as follows; ox team one day, 50 cents; 'my work, $3; dragging, $3 or less. I figured the whole cost of that 3,000 bushels' at 84. Q, — Do you recommend sowing turnip seed broadcast? A.— No, sir; the main thing is not to have to tussle with weeds. I h^ve sowed root seed broadcast and had them so weedy that I plowed them, under rather than, weed them. That w& s befpre J b,ad my eye teeth cut, The way I do new is ,to astee ridges.

Others search into the subsoil for its treasure of nutrition, Hence it is quite plain that, shallow rooted plants should follow deep rooted ones upon the same ground. Thereby its greatest bulk of soil is drawn upon for its supplies of food. Likewise crops that severely exhaust potash in the soil (should not' be succeeded by crops of same feeding characteristics. Rather let nitrogen or phospho ric acid consumers follow the potash feeders. Of course it will be understood that all crops require t » certain quantity of every variety of the elements of plant food. The point is that some crops draw more heavily upon one .ingredient, and others upon another.and soon- 4 wise rotation consists^in alternating one class with another, linger any plan of rotation each piece of land should be invariably under'sod for at least a year pr two, Jn this way the essential organic matter or humus fa supplied to the soil.

It is conceded that the Royal Baking Powder is the purest and strongest of all the baking powders, The purest baking powder makes the finest, sweet* est, most delicious food. The strongest baking powder makes the lightest food. That baking powder which is both purest and strongest makes tile most digestible and wholesome food. Why should fiot every housekeeper avail herself of the baking powder which will give her the best food with the least trouble? Avoid all baking powders sold with a gift or prize, or at a lower price than the Royal, as they invariably contain alum, lime or sulphuric acid, and render the food unwholesome. Certain protection from alum baking powders can be had by declining to accept any substitute for the Royal, which is absolutely pure. What We're Coming To.

If you haven't waited beyond reason, there's complete • recovery and cure. Although by many believed to be jn curable, there is the evidence of hundreds of living- witnesses to the fact that, in all its earlier stages, consumption is a curable ^ disease. Not every case, but a large percentage of cases, and we believe, fully 98 per cent, are cured by Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, even after the disease has progressed so far as to induce repeated bleedings from the_ lungs, severe lingering cough with copious expectoration (including tubercular matter), great loss of flesh and extreme emaciation and weakness. Do you doubt that hundreds of such cases reported to us as cured by " Golden Medical Discovery " were genuine cases of that dread and fatal disease ? You need not take our word for it. They have, in nearly every instance, been so pronounced by the best and mpst experienced home physicians. who have no interest whatever in misrepresenting them, and who were often strongly prejudiped and advised against a tnal of "Golden Medical Discovery," J)Ut who have been forced to confess that it surpasses, w curative power - over this fatal malady, all other medicines with which .they are acquainted.
