She had trusted him implicitly, and his frequent journeys from home had been satisfactorily explained by , the necessities of a growing business. , But he had deceived her all the time, he had lied in her ears and smiled, oh, how tenderly, in her eyes during all that period of ignoble ac, tion. . iNow he was safe in jail—they told ''her that, these gossips—and the other • woman he had so cruelly wronged was i lying, cold and silent, in her casket, , with her infant folded closely to her breast. He had killed her, they said, ' but no one knew the circumstances, astthe whole case rested on the simple fact that he had been with her the evening before and was the last person seen in her living presence. .< - When this came to her mind Grace •started almost, involu ntarily, to get her hat and shawl. She must go to 'him, of course; she was his wife, her place was at his side, and it was her 'duty to effect his release from this terrible position of disgrace and misery. ,' Half way across the room she sud- ' denly recollected .herself. He was £* ,1 her husband,yyes, the ring on her pL* -finger, the certificate in the bible told ' , -her that; but why should she go to him now when he had wronged her •,to the extent that was past all human ' forgiveness? , * She looked at one of the pictures in her hand. It was a beautiful picture, /the likeness of a fair young girl, and as she looked her eyes filled with tears and her heart seemed paining her worse than ever. .' "I-suppose I ought to hate you," 5 she murmured sorrowfully, but the 1 face of the young girl only smiled "back at her in a merry way, and the ,-/ tears rolled faster down her cheeks as £vshe laid it carefully among her " treasures. -v> i "She was my sister in shame," she $aid bitterly. "If I have been •<• wronged, so has she. If she has suf: fered, so shall I, but some day, when / we meet in heaven, a bond of love and tender sympathy will make us : understand each other." ;-' Then she raised the infant's picture ', to her lips, and a storm of heavy, bit- j. 1 ter sobs swept suddenly from her ^"aching bosom.

She Had proven her husband's guilt and treachery. Now it remained to prove his erime. The one was no Worse than the other in her eyes. In fact, to- kill her might have been a mercy, and sb the first great sin seemed overshadowing the other. She started at last to leave the house attd Was eJonfrouted by the vi<*> tint's mother, she was an aged woman, very gray, and ndw so sad that her very soul seemed bowed with horror, The mother did not know, it seemed. She thought her daughter was the lawful wife and this a wicked interloper. In the very height of agony and scorn she shook her finger in Grace's livid face. "Be gone!" she said-hoarsely, "flow dare you profane the presence of the dead?" and Grace Denison, her face flushing hotly, only stood still and thought a second and then went meekly from her presence. But in • that momentary hesitation her plan of mercy was conceived. With the dead girl's face still vividly before her eyes, she hurried to Where they were keeping her husband. At first when she saw him he Was still the man she loved, the man whose name she bore and whose slightest wish it was her only joy to pamper. There were tears in her eyes, tears iii her voice and tears in her heart when she asked of him the fatal question. "Charlie,"- she whispered fondly, "swear to me it is not true, this hideous story that they tell about you. Tell me that I am still your wife, that you love me and that this other fiendish thing is but the wild conception of our tattling neighbors. Tell me—" she began again, but stopped as she saw his guilty features. There was fear in his eyes and guilt in his soul as he rose at last and tried to face her. "It is all quite true,!' he said cautiously. "She was my mistress and I killed her in a fit of passion. I have wronged you and I have got to die, unless—" and he paused for a moment's breath, "unless you forgive me and will try to save me." With a mighty scorn singing in her heart Grace Denison turned upon her heel and left him there. "Die!" she muttered hoarsely as she walked away. "Death is too good for such as you, and it is what you have given your innocent victim." Then •• when she was alone-once more she began to think about the future. What was there left when love was gone, what happiness could soothe her sorrow? To die was peace and blessed rest, to live meant fierce, perpetual anguish. . ' W-hy should she Tie'the one to>live— she 'the most innocent of the three, so far as the opinion of the .'world was .concerned; It was almost more than she could,bear,.this looking forward to the. future,-. -...', -.. Sho t hurried-back.tocher hqme,shun- ning-her neighbors on the way and half afraid of. harmless..-strangers. Once inside the door she pulled the ring from her finger and threw it in a distant corner, then jerking the bible from its place she tore to shreds that precious page that proved her sacred, legal marriage. It had occurred to her that in that distant city no one would know the truth and she might save the dead girl's name even at the- price of her own sweet honor. . Was it not her place to .undo her, husband's evil deeds, and make good his theft of a woman's reputation? •'*'' 'j It was the victim's mother that had put it into her head, the .fact of her having been taken for the guilty mistress. - , To decide was to act, and still silent, still sorrowful, but brave in heart, she left her happy hpme / foj> ever. • -.-:;•-Two days later her husband was se.t free. Grace Denison had sworn' 1 that through jealousy she did the wicked deed and then sat meekly in her cell, waiting with some impatience for the fatal day which should bring oblivion to her and condemn the man ia perpetual memory. The Location of Maniory, The memory remains intact^ 'and in perfect working order in cases where the left side of the brain is badly diseased, or even if portions qf, ,it hare been removed. From th'is tha natural inference is that the right side of the brain is the seat of that most remarkable faculty, Weutenant Brady, who lost a portion of the right side of the brain from a gunshot wound while in Assam, where two-thirds of the officials are negroes, suffered a remarkable lapse pf memory, ,'After he had fully recovered he k»ew and could call by all his white associates, but the negroes, whom be formerly knew .as well as, the whites, were perfect strong-erg to One >Vomaa Member, Cross-;.of St. George is given only for bravery 90 the field of battle, but the order has one wemao member; tbc^'gu^en pf $a.ptes, who wpft it by ber gallant 4efenje of C?aeta, last stronghold pf the bourbons in AID MAff§B§ 61?.

Less urine • was voided during the winter than during the summer in spite of the fact that roots were fed liberally in winteft It is also noticeable that where the roots were decreased from 70 to f 60 pounds (Dec. 30 to feb. 2) the average quantity of urine increased from i&.l to 14.2 pounds per cow per day, and the further decrease to 30 pounds of roots during April did not diminish the excretions of urine. The .cows voided three and one half times as much solid as. liquid .manure while on winter feed, and two and one fourth times as much while- on winter feed, During'the year 18,431 pounds of dung and 6,464 pounds of urine were voided per cow."

' These 'figures show that the liquid manure contained more nitrogen of/.the food than the solid and that its'waste is the waste of the costly material;' of plant ' growth. Its analysis showed per ton 34.' pounds of nitrogen, 33.6 pounds potash and 48 pounds of phosphoric acid. The paucity of phosphoric acid in the urine shows ihe folly: of using this manure singly as is still the Custom in' Europe to a material extent and the ambition of many of our farmers who, fortunately: for them, are unable, as they-'think, to meet/the expense of the tank", to save it' and the sprinkler, to apply,, it.

Like Jack Sprat's pig, he wasn't very lean and wasn't very fat." Some writers have called this the "Old Irish 'Greyhound" pig 1 , probably in reference to his long legs and equip* ment for speed. Richardson describes: him as follows; "They are tall, long- legged, bony, heavy-eared, coarse- haired, animals, their throats furnished with pendulous wattles, and by no means possessing half so much the appearance of domestic swine as they do of the wild boar, the great original of: the race. In Ireland, the old, gaunt race of hogs has for many years past been gradually wearing away, and is now perhaps wholly confined to the western parts of the counti-y, especially Galway, These swine are remarkably active, and will clear a five-barred gate as well as any hunter." In later years swine of prpvved pattern are driving out the .old types, and crosses are still further inpdifying them. _ ' :: >•'. | Successful Woman Farmer.; JVIiss Mary E.

It is a common notion among many that it is a'waste'to cut up'-the ears with the; stalks when putting them in the siloj ^hey hpld that if the ears are picked oft and dried the stalks, when put : in the silo, will make<a gootl silage and go as far-as if the ..ears were left on, says-Farm and Home. They seem to reason upon the absurd basis that ,a part is greater than the whole. The Wisconsin; experiment • station under-' took to solve the problem pf siloing corn, ears and alii and found that there was a loss of 7 per cent in dry matter where the ears were picked off and; dried and thy stalks siloed more than where the corn, ears and all, was siloed. In feeding out the corn it was found that the cows ate a little more of the silage containing the ears and also; drank a little more water while on 'this food, but the difference in either case was small, They also ate a little more of the silage containing the ears than of the other feed which had, the .dried ears added to the silage. The cows, however, pro* duced more milk and more butter when fed the silage, ears and all. The difference,in milk yield was 4il,6 pounds, or 3,6 per cent, and of butter 16,5 pounds, or 6,9 per cent, Figuring on the basis of the amount of dry matter it was found that loo pounds of dry matter in the siloed corn ration produced 68.9 pounds of milk and 3,18 pounds of butter as against 68.3 pounds of milk and 3,os pounds of butter from the ration composed of siloed stalks and dry ears. Add to the greater feeding value of the corn when siloed, ears and all, the greater amount of dry matter attained by preserving the corn in this way, and'the difference between the two methods is more marked. Then taking into considera,' tion the extra labor of picking, husk' ing, drying thp e^rg and grinding the corn, the economy tofisilQinf the ears with the jgtafeiaiveyy_ to the raising of fruits and vegetables, which are sold from'her teams direct to the consumer, 'the surplus going to the canneries.

PEOPLE wonder frequently from what origin' sprang most of our vegetables, and seem to have the idea that they have come down to us from remote antiquity, and that the list of •edible.^productions of this nature remains-the same from age to age, A greater mistake could not be made. The list is continually changing, but mostly in the line of accretions. Few are struck out, but the old ones are nearly all developed to a state ofper- feption of which our ancestors never dreamed. Within the present century several important additions have been made, such as the ^tomato, egg plant and many more, Nearly all new sources of food have been developed from wild plants that were considered as useless and some even poisonous. People are now living that remember when the tomato was grown for beauty 'only ,and was avoided as dangerous to eat, All of this leads us to observe that the food of our grandchildren will certainly comprise important vegetables developed from plants that we npw know as weeds. And'this leads to the further observation that there are unknown possibilities hidden in the vegetable world at our doors, Who will develop the dandelion,the plantain, the soi the docks and all their relatives something valuable to mankind the thistle, which so persistently forces its attention PR man, must have soine great message tbat'it is dumbly trying to deliYflr.-*~Fa.rjnerg' Review, H^#ii , tftih PftH* fitfcet Cft«.

In the far western arid country, where growers must depend wholly upon irrigation for moisture for their orchards, the expense . of ditching is compensated by the good result that they can absolutely regulate the water supply the trees shall receive. The soil of the Eocky mountain slopes is peculiarly adapted for fruits, grapes and berries, and the people of those regions more and more are entering upon this branch Of farming. In New l^exicd orchards are being planted on a scale rivaling those of California, with the advantage that a finer quality of fruit can be raised to be sold in a much nearer market. A scheme is now under way to plant a 10,000 acre orchard in thePecos valley, • near Roswell, with the intention that 2,000 acres of trees shall be set out this year. A Missouri firm will plant 1,000 acres of land to apple trees this year in- Chavez county, and in several places in that county the preparations for setting out hundreds of acres are being made. The shipment of grapes to the east from the upper and middle Kio Grade valleys has for years been an important and increasing item of railroad freight, and this fruit commands a price usually a half higher than the California grapes.
