It is gratifying to see so many American farmers putting their waste places or spare pieces of land into rutabagas and turnips for early fall or long winter feeding. They are getting the European ideaof rootcrops. Theie the turnips and rutabagas are sown broadcast as are almost all grains, and if not desired as roots, the foliage then is used for grcenfood. Just imagine the results of a twenty-acre oatpatch treated in this way! Think of the tremendous amount of green fodder, magnificent fodder too, coming into full play during hot August and September. Why, a field of rutabagas and turnips, there, for cattle food is-worth almost as much as the oats gathered therefrom! Another good plan is to sow rutabaga seed, especially the variety known as v Salzer's LaCrosse, Wis., Mammoth Russian variety, or his Milk Globe turnip sort, at the rate of one-half pound per acre, into the cornfield, just before the last cultivation. This will give you two good crops—one of corn, the other of roots from the same land! One advantage of the rutabaga is that it can 'be sown at any time of the summer for green food, while a sowing the latter part of July is .the best in northern states .'for big, sweet, juicy roots for •winter storage and use. Remarkable Animal. "The giraffe has a tongue eighteen inches long," said Mrs. Garill. "And knows how to hold it, too, 1 ! snapped Mr. Gun-ill, who had had a long curtain lecture the night .before. On Notes. "Why so glum?" asfcerl his friend, "Aren't you doing a roaring trade?" "Yes, I am," admitted the basso, "but it is all on notes." In France, when a railroad train is more than teu minutes late, the comp any is fined Tho branches of the Mississippi Rivei have an aggregate length of fifteen thousand miles. Most physicians think that the sun radiates heat as It does, light or. as a stove emits warmth. The horn of the rhinoceros is not joined to the bone of the head, bul grows on the skin like a wart or corn, Microscopists say that the strongest microscopes do not, probably, reveal tho lowest stages of animal life. Man is scientifically defined as forty- five pounds of carbon and nitrogen diffused through five buckets of-water. It is now claimed' that foods stored in An eminent scientist suggests that the twinkling of the fixed stars may actually be caused by the flaming of the tremendous conflagrations possibly taking place on these far-away distant suns. Sir William Thomson has recently been making experiments to discover what the effect of a cannonade of quick firing guns would be on board the,vessel firing and the ship subject to the fire. He finds that after fifteen minutes firing the survivors of the crews of both vessels would be reduced to a state of mental if not physical incapacity, owing to the concussion of the projectiles on the sides of the vessel and the noise of the guns. The lotus In India is emblematic of life; in ancient Egypt it was a death flower. The purple columbine, in both England and Scotland, is symbolic of determination. In the south of France the handing of a sweet ,pea by a young woman to a young man is a polite way of state- ing that she is tired of his company. la * a ttsft i* tt&tto mdst tfftgid dealh tfcat ha& 66* cut-red in this country recently -aft of Chief Engineer WHlitm A.

Mr. Allefl was ofi his way from Portland to Lewis* ton. As the tf alb gassed onto the bridge he stepped out upon the rear platfo'fift td glance at sonie wark that was beifag done on the sidewalk of the bHdge. The train was moving quite fapidly M Mr. Allen reached the platform, * Just at that instant one of the uprights' at the side of the bridge struck him ofi the head. He fell forward, clear of the bridge. A number of workmen had seen the accident and- stood awe-struck, peering down into the tossing waters beneath them, They seemed to be deprived of motion by the suddenness and horror of the tragedy taking place before their eyes. At the point from which Mr. Allen was hurled . to his death the railroad bridge is fifty feet above a darn, Before he struck the water the unfortunate man rebounded from the pole of the bridge and then plunged downward into the waters seething under the goad of a spring freshet. Then the onlookers felt that he had lost every chance of life, but, to their amazement, they saw him come to the surface of the mad torrent and struggle wildly against the flood that sought to overwhelm him. It was the fight of a desperate but brave and powerful man against impossible odds. Stunned as he had been by the blows he had received in his descent, his strength was marvelous. Time and again he seemed to buffet the waves with the fervor of hope. But those who watched him knew that he was doomed. To the men upon the bridge it seemed as if Mr. Allen's struggle for existence lasted a long time, but the truth is that his contest with the waters was only momentary. Almost instantly the merciless torrent swept him onward through the rapids until he reached the whirlpool that boils above the cataract. For nearly 500 feet he was hurled against jagged rocks by his pitiless foe. His fate seemed certain, but for another moment the spectators hoped against hope that by some method he would still be able to extricate himself from his threatening environment; Suddenly above the foam of the whirlpool they saw upstretched a hand and arm. Then the dancing waters were all that their eyes could .follow, and they knew that the man who had fought so hard for life had been hurled over the cataract and would be no more seen alive. , at last FlM*lifeiIo*ttJid dace Afflicted ttafas. , from the Journal, .Mustifttifie, lowft. tin the second floor <at one* of ' ouf neatest business buildings, located at So. 138 West Front street, is the honre of Constable and Mrs. M.

There is comfort ki the knowledge, that so"m&ny Jormsot sickness are not due to any actiial disease, but simply to a constipated condij tion of the system, which, the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of Figs, promptly removes, That is why it is the only remedy with millions of families, and »s everywhere esteemed so highly by all who value good health, Its beneflcial effects are due to the.fact, that itis the one remedy which proinotep internal cleanliness without* debilitating the prgans pn wWch. it Rots.

The circular issued by Department Commander Derby of the Massachusetts Grand Army of the Republic, urging the members of the order to support a scheme of international arbitration, cannot be dismissed as the words of men who know nothing of war. Precisely because the veterans- of the Grand Army of the Republic do know war, because they realize that it is very different from review-day splendor, do they urge that English-speaking peoples should take the lead in establishing a permanent tribunal of international arbitration. We suppose that there will be some jingoes who will •impute a mean notive to those who think with Commander Derby, but if ever there were men who have put their courage and military virtues beyond question and have borne themselves bravely in war and worthily In peace those men are the veterans of the army of the union. If this country ever is called upon to fight a foreign foe they may be reckoned on to confront danger as promptly as of yore and to look death in the face as steadily, though their eyes have grown old, and they are doing their duty in peace when they tell their fellow-citizens that war is a terrible last resort, that arbitration is better than glory,, and that peace with honor and with an honorable regard for the rights of others is the condition that we should seek to make normal.—Boston Transcript.

Arabian women, when they are obliged to go into mourning, not only stain their hands and feet with indigo for eight days, but drink no. milk during the same period, on the ground that its hue does not harmonize with their mental gloom.

The United States has 480 deaf mutes to the million of population. Thomas Holcroft wrote a famous comedy called "Deaf and Dumb." Deaf and dumb people receive systematic instruction at Oxford in England by Dr. J. Wallis, in 1660. The tympanum covers the passage leading to the interior of the ear, just as a drumhead covers the drum. The first, systematic instruction on scientific principles for the deaf was begun by Bonet at Madrid, in 1020. Many deaf persons can hear music distinctly by placing one end of a cane .upon the piano and holding the other to the teeth. GEMS OF THOUGHT. Religion requires the extirpation of all those passions and vices which render men unsociable and troublesome to one another.—Tillotson. Severity carried to the highest pitch breaks the mind; and then in the place of a disorderly young fellow you have a low-spirited, moped creature.—Locke. If I were to trust to my observation and give a verdict on it, I must depose that, in my experience, I have found that those who were most indulgent to themselves were (in the mass) less kind to others than those who have lived a life nearer to self denial. I go further. In my experience I have observed that a luxurious softness of manners hardens the heart, at least as much as an over-done abstinence.—Burke. NOTES OF THE DAY.
