', "No," 1 said, "is she addicted to hunting monkeys?" "dttiy the tttonkey," he replied. "1 used to do it once." "Dear me!" 1 said, amusement In the then?" "No," he answered mournfully. "I was engaged to that girl once and that beast of a monkey broke the engagement." "Were you," I asked, "cut out by the monkey, then?" "A man," he said, "'must be very, very young to make a remark like that." "Who Is she?" I inquired. "Oh, she'e Miss Tremaine," he eaid. "I'll tell you the story, if you like. It will be a warning to you never to get engaged to a gift who keeps a mon- fcey." "At present," I said, "there is no girl of the sort in my mind's eye, but It's better to be prepared for all emergencies." "I got engaged to Miss Tremaine," he said, "about three years ago. I met her at the tennis club and dances and 'around the places.generally here, but I had never seen much of her at home, and I was unaware even of the monkey's existence. As soon as we were engaged I was introduced to Jacko. He was a small monkey of ordinary ap- pearanco and was not at first sight • prepossessing, but in the Tremaine 'household he was a family fetich. It's curious to notice the dominant Influence in different families.. Sometimes it's the baby, sometimes the butler, sometimes a first husband's memory and sometimes the daily paper. 'But in this case Jacko reigned supreme. Captain Tremaine, who was dead, had bought the beaet, and it was concerned in a. touching deathbed scene or something of the kind. At any rate Mrs. Tremaine regarded it as a sacred relic of : the .dear deceased, and lavished all Jier love and affection on it. I well •remember the first night I saw Jacko, and discovered the habit that eventually wrecked an engagement. It was a stifling evening and I suggested to Maud the desirability of opening a window. 'Oh, no,' she said, 'we never can ••have the wiudows open in the evening. Jacko would got out. 1 My first hint of Jacko's habits was enlarged by Mrs. Tremaine's frequent and objectionable intrusions to inquire as to the beast's whereabouts. A' man in the first rapture of an engagement naturally dislikes the inrushes of someone else in 'pursuit of a -monkey. The next morning the nuisance increased. A servant came round—they live a few doors from here—to tell me that Jacko had just' escaped and would I help to catch him? I found him about lunch time , after a long and exciting chase. As seemed obvious, I caught him by the tail, and the brute bit me and went on for another half hour. Mrs. Tremaine explained reproachfully that Jacko al- Ta-ys bit people who touched his.tail. "For some months Jacko continued to be a nuisance-at-home and abroad. When he escaped, which he managed to co about once a week, I was expected to secure him. This generally hap- .pencd in the morning, when the windows were open ami the tradesmen v/ero calling, and at first on these occasions I did not reach my chambers '• the afternoon. Afterward I became quite an adept -at catching him. His plan of campaign was to wait until bis pursuer was quite close and then jump about twenty yards. I bought a .large butterfly net with a long handle, Jaud he never got the hang of that. |When I had discovered this invention ,1 was comparatively happy, but I waited with dread for the time when Jacko should escape after dark, and I should <be compelled to hunt for the brute •through the watches of the night on ]tho peril of losing the regard of the ','Tremaine family. Jacko'g nomadic habits were, I may explain, attributed |to a desire to find bis dead master. At •last the event that I dreaded occurred. JQne cold winter's evening Jacko disappeared while the cook was interview* tog ber favorite policeman at the back < s dQor, and got well away. The cook l AMfOKA.

"In the morning we appeared before his Worship. The Italian and I were charged with creating a disturbance and assaults and breaches of the peace and that kind of thing, and, aa far as 1 remember, the police threw a charge of drunk against me. His worship asked to see the monkey, and when they brought him in, lo and behold, there were two Jackos. "After some explanation the magis* trate dismissed the charge against us with a caution, on the ground of excusable mistake. And, Indeed, it was most excusable. Apparently the Italian had really lost his monkey, and whether it was his monkey or Jacko that he had been pursuing when I encountered it, I do not know to this day. At all events, the police had captured the other monkey during the night and had shut the two up together. There they i-,t, two ugly, grinning, indistinguishable creatures, both guilty, according to the evidence, of aggravated assaults on the police. "When we were released from the dock the magistrate asked us to remove the monkeys. The Italian and I stared at each other blankly. He knew no more than I which was his property. Of course, it was useless to consult the police about their identity. As the magistrate pointed out, there Is no presumption either in law or in fact as to the ownership of two stray monkeys. I appealed to him to decide the question himself, and he pointed out that it was the duty of the police to restore property to its owners. He said that he was not Solomon, but only a police magistrate, and that he doubted whether even the house of lords could throw much light on the subject. The matter, he thought, was eminently one to be settled out of court. "At first I tried to solve the difficulty by buying out the Italian's claim to either of the monkeys, with the idea of sorting them afterward. But he also, it appeared, had a romantic attachment for his carissimo monkey, and he declined my overtures with fervent appeals to most of the saints on the register. The whole thing, he seemed to think, was a base attempt on the part of a brutal foreign government to trample on the rights of an Italian citizen, and to consign his monkey to the dungeons of the zoo. Then I offered him his choice of the two, and this might have saved all trouble if Mrs. Tremaine had not arrived at that moment to inquire for Jacko, and had not learned the whole affair from a communicative inspector. "Neither Jacko nor the alleged Jacko showed the faintest signs of recognition. Indeed, they almost at once devoted themselves to a sanguinary fight in which Mrs. Tremaine intervened with considerable injury to herself. Then she turned to me and I could see from her manner that she considered me responsible for the whole difficulty. wiy eat dl the difficulty afcd stiitabi* td Ihfe frcdaMoft. fh6 Ofgafi griftdel went oft We way eoatentediy aad 1 hoped the affair was at an end. But t waggery ftfteh mistaken. ' ?fa sootier had he gone than Mrs. f resflalpe and Maud became convinced alike that they had given tip the real Jacko. they eaid they were now certain t>£ it. Poor dear Jacko was sitting on a barrel organ I& a cold street and engaged In the degrading occupation of collecting coppers, and monkeys were liable to consumption, and what would dear papa think If he were alive? "I stood thia for about ten days and then I went to the Italian again, hav ing obtained his address in case of further complications. His affections were apparently now extended to both monkeys, for he consented to an exchange for further consideration. Surely, thought to myself, Maud and her mother will be content now. But no, the .thing began all, over again.. The former Jacko was their darling and they'd given him up when they'd gotten him safe, and It was by my advice and it was all my fault. Twice more I exchanged those monkeys, and, at last, even my patience failed. We quarreled and we parted, and I've never spoken to her since. That's why I say never get engaged to a girl who keeps a monkey."

For a quarter of an hour I had a really lively time. Mrs. Tremaine hectored the Italian and the Italian objurgated Mrs. Tremaine. Neither of them understood a word the other said, and I had to act as interpreter and buffer. "Eventually, I made the best terms that I could. The Italian agreed, for a consideration, to allow us to keep both monkeys for a week, during which we might discover their identity. Mrs, Tremaine quite readily agreed to the proposal, for she was confident that no monkey but Jacko could possess Jacko's virtues, J was more doubtful, believing that the virtues were few at enough to be common to many monkeys. And so it turned out.- monkeys made themselves quite home, overate themselves equally, stole as cleverly, and, what was m°9t re. searched -w^th. identical p,er-. . . gistence for the deceased 'Cap^n raaine.

Have you ever thought of the distance you travel while you are out on an hour's stroll? Possibly you walk three miles within the hour, but that does not by any means represent the distance you travel. The earth turns on its axis every twenty-four hours. For the sake of round figures we will call the earth's circumference 24,000 miles, and so you must have traveled during the hour's stroll 1.000 miles in the axial turn of the earth. But this is not all. The earth makes a journey around the sun every year, and a long but rapid trip it is. The distance of our planet from the sun we will put at 92,000,000 miles. This is the radius of the earth's orbit—half the diameter of the circle, as we call it. The whole diameter is therefore 184,000,000 miles, and the circumference being the diameter multiplied by 3.1416,is about 578,000,000. This amazing distance the earth travels in its yearly journey, and dividing it by 365 we find the daily speed about 1,586,000. Then, to get the distance you rode a'round the sun during your hour's walk, divide again by 24, and the result is about 66,000: miles. But this is not the end of your hour's trip. The sun, with its entire brood of planets, is moving in space at the rate of 160,000,000 miles in a year. This is at the rate of a little more than 438,000 miles a day, or 18,250 miles an hour. So, adding your three miles of leg travel to the hour's axial movement of the earth, this to the earth's orbital journey, and that, again, to the earth's excursion with the sun, and you find you have traveled, in the hour, 85,253 miles. tu t* nr FARM MATfESS Of* tNffeftfeSf tp-to-diU* filttti About Coltlr*- tion Ot the Soil and Vtrtd* lit«*eot —ttoftlcdltttHS TltlCttHar* nnd enltar*.

Thompson, Methodist. any-variety-can be grown there is no need of soil exhaustion so far as nitrogen is concerned. It is now beginning, however, to creep into the heads of the scientists that the restorative powers of the legumes is due not merely to the supply of nitrogen but the restoration of humus to the soil, and investigations are now proceeding in that lins which promise to be exceedingly interesting. By humus we mean the vegetable mold which exists to a greater or less extent in all soils but is more abundant in all new soils, whether forest or prairie. It has been observed by the common, every day farmer who pretends to no knowledge of science, soils decline in fertility in proportion as this vegetable mold is exhausted. It is exhausted quite rapidly not merely by the removal of crops but by chemical action which is the result of cultivation, hence the soil that seems to be rich in vegetable matter turns out in a few years to be a clay bed which produces little or nothing. The Minnesota agricultural experiment station has been taking a prominent part in these investigations and has found that when a fertilizer containing nitrogen, potash and phosphoric acid, or any one of these altogether or alone there was in no case an increase of over three bushels of wheat or two bushels of flax per acre, and on moderately new soils, and that where soils had been cropped for twenty years the largest increase was four bushels per acre while the decline between these soils in their best condition and worn out condition was fifteen bushels per acre. It is therefore clear from this and other results hat the decline in soil fertility is not due merely to the removal of the elements essential to fertility but to some other cause. .That cause is to a very great extent the lack of humus or vegetable matter, and it is quite probable that the results of clovering, which in our experience adds from fifteen to twenty-five bushels of corn per acre to worn out soil, is due not merely to the nitrogen stored in the soil but to the material from which humus is made | in the form of the roots of the clover. This accounts also for the lasting effects of barnyard manure which contains not merely these essential elements of fertility but adds humus to the soil.—"Wallaces' Farmer. Too Trae.

The Wisconsin Horticultural society bulletin publishes an article by J. C. Plumb on "Protecting Evergreens from Drouth." It is as follows: The premature death of so many of our evergreens in lawn and hedges, in southern Wisconsin, Is truly alarming. In my home village are many trees which have hitherto flourished and attained their ten to thirty feet, without any show of weakness, but which in the last year have lost their foliage never to return, and the evergreen hedges, miles of which we have planted and furnished In that vicinity, are now many of them dying out in spots, or show a weakness that preludes death, and I am looking for a larger death rate to show among the evergreen trees than ever, with the coming spring and summer. With a view to avert further losses in this line I have been looking up the facts and seeking a remedy. It is plain enough that the primary cause of this death is the want of rainfall during summer and autumn, as has been the case during tha last two years. Copious and seasonable watering would have saved most o£ them without doubt. But prevention is better than cure. Articial watering is generally costly and often a difficult process. So we find it best to avoid the cause by conditions of planting and growth. Our annual rainfall is all sufficient for our needs in this direction, if it can be conserved, or reserved, for time of need, In this Jjne we find three ways available, namely: First, culture; second, mulching; third, protection from robber plants, The first two methods named we all understand and practice with all successful culti- vations, but the last remedy we have failed to appreciate, Qwr evergreens are being robbed of the last vestige of water in the soil by decidupus trees, of which the white epft maple is roost destructive, the butternut and Euro* pean larch following close. In fact any tree the roots of whi'ch feed OR the sur» face will rgb the evergreens, We find the bemjock and pals&nj fjr most sen* eitive to the robber roots, and tb,e ar* bpr vjtfte jeast so; go that under the pme- eoftdlMpn.s the tatter la holding >ts own with, uttte nfcow ef weakness from, the dro.utb< N9W |jr, c $ no BU,rfa,c§ , BWloh, qr cujture wjJJ injwer fujly „, „.„ renewed tig Of oi oiif — „ Bat as this must be repeated evef f few years, It Is a (jueStlofl why" ndt iWt ih a peffBanefit eewsfete wall.between, or dispense altogether with the fafit growing deciduous trees? 1 am of the opinion that we hate too many of these rapid growing maples, and the sooher they ate dispensed with the better for bur beautiful evergreens, i have for mahy years been In the practice of cutting the surface it>ots of gi-ass and shrubs around our lawn trees by shoving the spade its full depth In a circular cut as far from the base of the tree as its branches project, attd the same treatment for the rose bed, or any of the choice plants which are bordered by grass, and ito all cases -with excellent and immediate effect. Of the miles of evergreen hedges we have planted but few will be left at the end of another series of dry years, unless protection is afforded same from robber foots of more vigorous trees. Killing Weeds. Weeds are easily killed just when they begin to grow. If the ground is then stirred they will be very readily put out of the -way. When those little tender white roots which they first put out are turned up to the light and sun, they soon vanish. But once allow them to get a good hold upon the soil and it is quite a different thing to remove them. Let the harrow for instance stir the surface of a corn field just when the weeds are starting, and they will be destroyed in myriads. But let the harrowing be delayed for two or three weeks and comparatively few of the weeds will be killed with one harrowing. In growing a crop of man- gels, if the edges of the raised drill are hoed down just as soon as the mangels appear, this work may be quickly done without disturbing the mangels, but once let those weeds get firmly rooted and the difficulty of the work will be greatly increased. The rootlets from the weeds will intertwine around those of the mangels, so that when the former are being uprooted the latter may also be pulled out. The true plan is to so arrange that the roots of the weeds will not make any considerable headway before they are destroyed. Then the work is easily done, and the farmer should be careful not to grow more of a crop than he can take care of in good form. This is particularly true of crops that require summer cultivation.—Ex. The Root Crop. Mangels, sugar beets and carrots, when properly stored, may be kept until late spring the following season, but the former should not be exposed to the early frosts of autumn or they will not keep so well. Our machines for saving these crops are not by any means what .We want at the present time. The standing objection to the growing of field roots is the labor involved; but think of the offset to this labor in the streams of milk which the roots generate/ and in the beneficial influence which they exert on the health of the cattle. Unnecessary labor may in a sense be grievous, but not so the labor involved in growing field roots. For nearly 6,000 years men have found that it is not such a bad thing, after all, for a-man to earn his bread by the sweat of his brow, and growing field roots has a more salutary influence even on the health of a lazy man than the consumption of the roots has upon the health of the cattle to which they are fed.—Ex, Chicago Horse Market. The total receipts for the first half of the current year aggregate 70,929 horses' received and 56,889 horses dispatched, against 70,866 arrivals and 68,233 dispatched for the first six months .last year. The extraordinary receipts in 1895 have more than been duplicated up to the close of the June trade, and all indications are favorable that this season will establish a new record in the volume of trade at the market. Receipts are very light, the light receipts of all grades being ample to supply the limited demand from all sources. Eastern farmers say they cannot compete with western farmers in raising draft horses, but in coach and carriage horses they propose to take the lead, All right; we can supply the;n with both draft and coach horses when we get started to breeding.—Exchange. Wild Oats.-r-According to Dr. Scho- ernburgk, of South Australia, a variety of our common field oat (avena sativa, var. melanosperma) has become surprisingly injurious. He says: "The black oat has the most notorious preeminence of all the introduced weeds, and the effects of the Intruder most ruinous to the farming country. * * * Thousands of acres of amble land, especially such as have been in cultivation some years, are totally ruined for the purpose of wheat growing, by the black oat," Yet, of a very, closely allied plant, Dr, Brewer, years, before the above was written, eaid: "Tbewjid oat (avena'steriiis) tsfound-from Palestine" to the ' Atlantic, but I aeverheard'that it is of any value tbej-e, But in America, it clothes the plates of California; western Mexico; also parts of America ajjd the Wand of JU&B nawflez.
