The Red Sea is so called because Its surface is literally covered with minute crimson animalculae: The waters of that are as clear as crystal and cf a bright hue. A spot near the Friendly islands, latitude 24 degrees 87 minutes south; longitude 175 degrees 8 minutes west,' is twenty-three feet, more than five English miles In depth. The Mediterranean .is not an ocean, and should not properly be .mentioned here, but there are nine different places known in It that are over three miles In depth, just the same. Dr. School, the German hydrogra- pher, says that there are not less than 20,000,000 tons of mineral matter per day added to the store which the ocean already holds In solution', Herbert and Sloan, the English chemists, are authority for the statement that all known chemical elements are held in solution In the waters In any one of the great oceans. Every ton of. Atlantic water, when evaporated, yields 81 pounds of salt; a ton of Pacific water, 79 pounds; Arctic and Antartic waters yield 85 pounds to the ton, and Dead sea water 187 pounds, On LEGAL NOTES.

An outlawed debt is revived should the debtbr make a partial payment. A check indorsed by the paye'e Is evidence of payment In the drawer's bands, An indorser can avoid liability by writing "without recourse" beneath his signature. Want of consideration— a common defense Interposed to the payment of negotiable paper — Is a good defensf between the original parties to the paper; but after It has been transferred before maturity to an Innocent holder for value it Is not a defense, Negotiable paper, payable 'to bearer or indorsed in 'blank, which has been stolen or lost, cannot b'e collected by the thief or finder, but a holder who re» celves it v m good faith before maturity, for value, ca» hold It against the owner's claims at the time it was lost. Sometimes the holder of paper has the right to dernftnd payment before maturity; for instance, when a draft has been protested for non-acceptance and the proper notices served, tho bolder may at once proceed agajnst the drawer and indorsevs, 6. HAftttlSOtt, in journal o! Agriculture, says: the Veil that has s6 Icftg enshrouded in mystery the growing of ginsfcfeg bjr artificial meahs has at last been torn astinder, and its dazzling possibilities laid bare, Like many other supposed mysteries, when learned and fully understood it is not at all difficult. In this connection 1 wish to quote the botanist in his letter.of transmittal of report to the United States Department of Agriculture. He says: "The report brings out the facts that the wholesale price of American gin* seng has steadily increased from 62 cents per pound in 1858 to somewhat more than $3 per pound in .1893, and that the value of the export for the past decade has amounted to between $600,000 and $1,000,000 per year. The report also points out the fact that the natural supply is now rapidly decreasing and that its extermination, if present conditions continue, is Inevitable. At the same time, there can be no question but that the cultivation of ginseng is entirely practicable. Enough has been achieved In various parts of America to fully demonstrate the truth of the botanist's statement In regard to the practicability of its culture. The following statement is from a Chicago farm paper: Ginseng is scarce this year in the Big Sandy Valley, Ky., from where much of the ginseng produced In this country comes. For some reason, the mountaineers have neglected the industry during the last year or so. Ginseng is now worth $3.50 per pound, but the price is likely to inr crease considerably very soon." I have studied the habits and growth of this plant from boyhood, and am now growing It successfully In the garden. It can be grown in the garden, orchard or forest. It can be grown In the garden with very little attention and no expense after plantation is started, and where the plant grows wild, this expense can be saved. Every person own- Ing a few rods of land should engage in this pleasant and highly lucrative Industry. A few beds in a farmer's garden will more than pay the .farm expenses each year. Gypsum for Alkali Soils. Robert H. Forbes, chemist of the Arizona experiment station makes the following statement In bulletin 18 of that station respecting the use of gypsum on alkali land: 1.—The cost of gypsum depends largely upon freight rates. It-may be gotten as low as two cents a pound. Arizona contains undeveloped supplies of gypsum. 2.—It is said that a surface dress- Ing of gypsum will enable tender plants to make a start in alkaline soils. When I the crop Is large enough to shade the ground, evaporation and rise of alkali is retarded and the crop may be safely matured. 3.—in the case of fruit trees as with annual plants Injury most usually results from the corrosive action of the alkali just at the surface of the ground. The soil, however, and its bottom waters, may be so salty as to injure the trees through its roots. 4,—Gypsum improves the tilth of alkaline soils by acting .upon ^and changing the sodium" carbonate to which the lumpy character of these soils is largely due. 5.—The water of Salt river contains small amounts of gypsum in solution, The use of this water for irrigation ought therefore to result in a gradual disappearance of black alkali wherever It is applied, . 6.-rWood ashes contain considerable amount of potassium carbonate, a substance having properties similar to those of sodium -carbonate. The use of ashes on land already afflicted with alkali is therefore not advisable, fofpftihesj tf-eeS ancl'lfult their highest petfectl&ti tbef*.

P, tledrlck, front in Tree In an address upon "farming," published in bulletin i? of. the Arizona experiment station, Tucson, Ariz., Governor Hughes Is reported as having said, most pertinently for Arizona: "There is profit in tree-planting, Nearly every farm has little nooks which cannot be utilized for farming. The ash, cottonwood, perhaps the eucalyptus, and other fuel-growing trees ought to be cultivated on the borders of canals, and the main laterals might be planted with one or more rows of trees; they would grow here without Irrigation,' and would serve as a windbreak, und thus aid In preventing the moisture of the field from being absorbed by hot winds sweeping over them. They would have a tendency to check evaporation from canals and laterals by shutting out the rays of the sun, and at the same time It would provide homes for thousands of the feathered tribe who would pay for their lodging many times in the destruction of Insects, as well as by providing free concerts for the farmer's family." . . : ' Roaooillns Clover Meadows. The Ohio Experiment Station is now planning some experiments In attempt- Ing to get a stand of clover on fields sown last spring, but which failed to make a perfect stand, owing to the drouth. The bare spots in these fields will first be gone over with a sharp spike harrow, or with a disk harrow; crimson clover and common clover will then be sown side by side, and lightly covered in with smoothing harrow. A light seeding of oats as a nurse.crop may be added on part of the land, for comparison, but we expect the best results from seeding the clover alone. Last season's experience Demonstrated that the nurse crop may' prove a robber instead of a nurse, by taking all the water from the soil and leaving none for the clover. ferti ei C"aW6fni£ ferfrdttcfed gold t8 th6 vftiifS of $13,&23,28I ^tiring this last yea"*, The Mt.

The governor of AMz-ina says that territory produced the last year $10,000,000 in gold, against $4,000,000 in 1894. A century ago there was not a mile of telegraph or telephone wire in existence, not a foot of railway, not a steamship. According to the Herald of Peace, the British government owns nearly two-thirds of the navies of the world —9,984,280 tons. » The largest bell in Japan—that in the temple of Kioto—Is twetttyrfour feet high and sixteen feet in diameter across the rim. The foreign immigration to the United States for the last year was the smallest since 1879. The total number of,arrivals was 258,536. The estimated cost of the Suez canal was $40,000,000. Its cost when opened for traffic was nearly $92,000,000 and nearly $40,000,000 has since been spent In deepening and widening it. Country roads in China are never bounded by fences, but are entirely undefined. While the farmer has a right to plow up any road passing through his land, drivers of vehicles have an equal right—and they exorcise it—to traverse any part of the country at large. A new warehouse in Paris has been built with glass floors. The initial cost is considerably over that of the ordinary floor.but, in view of the fact that toughened glass is so much longer lived than wood, the experiment is likely to prove cheaper in the long run.

Bad Ittck will follow if a black cat crosses your path, for the devil prowls about, especially at night, in the guise- of a black cat. In Scotland they used to cure erysipelas by cutting off half a cat's car and letting the blood from the wound drop on the diseased part, In moving in Scotland the family cat is thrown into the new house before the family enters in order that it may- absorb any disease or curse left by former tenants. f % Cl SIGNS OF COMING RAIN. When the cat washes her face look out for rain. Juat before a rain the common house fly is very troublesome. ' * Rats and mice are generally very active and noisy just before a storm. Crickets sing much more sharply Just before a rain than at other times. The falling of soot from 'a chimney, is a tolerably sure indication of approaching bad weather. Parrots are good barometers. Just before a rain the most talkative and gabby parrot becomes silent. When bad weather Is imminent swallows fly low, because at such, times the Insects which constitue their food keep; near the ground. ] Botany at Champaign. The University of Illinois has recently been making extended Improvements in Its botanical department. Among these are substantial additions to the herbarium, which has, for the first time, been placed in a room by Itself, and the erection of a building for tho cultivation of plants needed in the laboratory. Arrangements have been made for the cultivation of. aquatic plants, and for carrying on various kinds of experiments, both by students In their regular practice, and by investigators endeavoring to make contributions to knowledge In a most Interesting but not sufficiently explored fielJ of science.

The prune industry has grown to be one of the most important interests in the state. Already it has assumed greater proportions than all other orchard industries,. As the favorite fruit crop of Oregon, it has much in its favor; the trees .are sure to bear, there are no climatic conditions to overcome, the finished 'product is not perishable, and Its insect pests and fungous diseases are less numerous than other fruits. The trees suffer, it is true, from several pests, put they are slight afflictions Jn comparison to the codljn moth &n,d apple scab of the apple and pear, and, until we nave curculip and black Knot, which render plum growing in the east almost impossible, we can ssiy that prunes are free frpm. diseases.
