A lion xvlll not stick at a trifle, whereas a full one will flee at a very small re- Intke. Well, we hunted all about, and bencath my feet there came a most awful snarl. «I Had lit dbwn almost Upon the back . tbo lioness, who had been sleeping on the slab where we stood to dry our- *l*es after bathing. With a snarl and „ erowl, before I could do anything, Lfore I could oven cock my rifle, she liad bounded right across the crystal ,,flol and vanished over the opposite ' ' - " done in an Instant, as in quick as thought, "She had been sleeping on the slab, and O li, horror! what was that sleeping beside her? It was the torn remnant of poor Jim-Jim, lying on a. patch of blood-stained rock! CHAPTER III. "Poor Jim-Jim! We burled what was left of him. which was not very much, in an old bread-bag, and though whilst he lived his virtues were not Teat, now that lie was gone we could have wept over him. Indeed, Harry did weep outright; Mile 1 registered u Billet little vow of my own account that I would let daylight into that lioness before I was forty-eight hours older, if by any means it could be done. "Well, we burled him, and there he lies where lions will not trouble him any more. So there is an end o£ the Imok of Jim-Jim. "The great question that now remained was, how to circumvent his murderess. I knew that she would return as upon us she was hungry again, but I did not know when she would ho hungry. She had left so little of Jim-Jim behind her that 1 could scarcely expect to see her the next night, unless she had cubs. Stilt, I felt that it would not bo wise to miss the chance of her coming, so we set about to make preparations for her reception. The'first thing, we did was to strengthen tlie'bush' wall of the skerm by dragging a largo quantity of the tops of thorn-trees together and laying one on the other in mush.a fashion that the thorns pointed outward. This, after our experience of tho fato of Jim-Jim, Hcemed a very necessary precaution, since if where one sheep can jump another can follow, as the Kafirs say, how much more is it tho case where nothing could we see, not even a duck or a bush buck; and at last thoroughly tired and out of temper we started on our -way back to camp, passing over the brow of a steepish hill to do so. Jitst as we got over the ridge I froze Up like a pointer dog, for there about six huh- dfed yards to my left, his beautiful curved horns outlined against the soft blue sky, 1 saw a noble koodoo bull (Strepslceros kudu). Even at that distance, forns you know, my eyes are very keen, I could distinctly see the white stripes upon its sides when the light fell upon it, and Us large and pointed ears twitch ns the flics worried It. "So far so good; but how were we to get at it? It was ridiculous to risk a shot at that great distance, nnd yet both the ground ami the wind lay very ill for stalking. It seemed to toe that the only chance, would be to mako a detour of at least a mile or more, nnd come up on the other side of the koo- doo. I called Harry to my side and explained to him what I thought would be the best course, when suddenly, without any delay, tho koodoo saved us any further trouble by suddenly Blartlng off down the hill Hke a leaping rocket. Perhaps a hyena or a leopard—a tiger as \vo t.all it there— had suddenly appeared; at any rate, off it wont, running slightly toward us, and I never saw a buck go faster. As for Harry, he stood watching the beautiful animal's course. Presently it vanished behind n patch of bush, to emerge a few seconds later about live hundred paces from us, on a stretch of comparatively level ground that was strewn with bowlders. On it went, tsiklng the bowlders in its path in a succession of great bounds that were beautiful to behold. As it did so, 1 happened to look round at Harry, and perceived to my astonishment that lie had got his rifle to his shoulder. " 'You foolish boy! 1 I ejaculated, 'surely you are not going to'—nnd juwt at that moment the rillc went off. "And then I think I saw what was in its way one of the most wonderful things I ever remember in my hunting experiece. The koodoo was at that moment In the air, clearing a pile of stones with its head. All In an instant UiO legs stretched themselves out In a spasmodic fashion, and it lit on them and they doubled up beneath it. Down went the noble buck, down on its forelegs tucked up underneath It, standing on its horns, its hind-legs high In the air, and then over it went and lay still. " 'Great heavens!' I said, 'Why, you've hit him! He's dead.' 'As for Harry, he said nothing, but of the night any sound seemed loud. "1 tvoke np Marry, who Instantly said, 'Where Is she? where is she?' and began to point his title about In & fashion that was mote dangerous to us and the oxen than to any possible lioness. "'Hush up!' I whispered, savagely; and as I did so, with a low and hldeons growl a flash of yellow light sped out of the clump of bush, past the ox, and into the corresponding clump upon the other side. The poor sick brute gave a sort of groan, and staggered round and then began to tremble; I could see it do so clearly in the moonlight, and I felt like a brute for having exposed the unfortunate animal to such terror as he must undoubtedly be undergoing. The lioness, for it was she, passed so quickly that we could not even distinguish her movements, much less shoot. Indeed at night it is absolutely Useless to attempt to shoot unless the object is very close and standing perfectly still ( and then the light is so deceptive and it is so difficult to see the foresight that, the best shot will misfl more often than he hits. i-rona fAtti AND 0AEDEN, to AQtffCULfURlStSi fiom* trp-io-<1ftto Mint* Afaont tloft 6f the 6otl and llfelda —ttortlcnlture, Viticulture and snittttfe.

Perhaps the statesmen who will animal so active and so vigorous as tho lion is 'concerned! And now i-arae the further question, how were we to beguile tbe lioness to return? Lions.arc animals that have a strange knack of appearing when they are not wanted and keeping studiously out of the way when their presence is required. "Harry, who, as I have said, was an nmineiitly practical boy, suggested to Pharaoh that he-.Blum-Id' go and sit outside the skerm in the moonlight as ii sort of a bait, assuring him that lie would have nothing to fear as we would certainly kill the llonesa before she killed him. Pharaoh, however, strangely enough, did not seem to take 10 this suggestion. Indeed, he walked away, much put out with Harry for having made it. "It gave mo an idea, however. ' 'Well!' I said, 'there is that ox. He must die sooner or later, KO wo may as well utilize him." "Now, about thirty yards to the left of our skerm, if ono stood facing down the hill toward the river, was the. stump of a tree that had been destroyed by lightning many years before, standing Hciuldlatantly between, .but a little in front of, two clumps of bush, which were severally some llftqcn paces from if. "Here was the very place to tie the ox; and, accordingly a Uttle before sunset the poor animal was led forth by Pharaoh and made fast there, little knowing, poor brute, for what purpose; and wo .commenced our long vigil, this time without n flrc, fur <mr object was to attract tbe lioness and not to scare her. "For hour after hour we waited, keeping ourselves awake by pinching each other—It is, by tho way, remark- fihlo what a difference in the forco of pinches requisite to the occasion exists in the mind of pinchor and pinchee —but no llonoss came. The moon wjjxed and the moon waned, and then at last the moon went down, and dark- icss swallowed up- tho world, but no lion came to swallow us up. We waited till dawn, because wo did not dare to sleep, and then at last we took such a- broken rest us we could get, "That morning we went out shooting, not because wo wanted to, for we were too depressed and tired, but because we had no moro meat, For three hours or more wo wandered about In the boiling sun looking for something to kill, but with absolutely no I'esults. For some unknown reason the game had grown very scarce about the spot, though when I was there two yours before every sort of largo game except rhinoceros and elephant was particularly abundant.

A man, let alone a boy, might have fired a thousand such shots without ever touching the object; which, mind you, was springing and bounding over rocks quite live hundred yards away; and here this lad—taking a snap shot, and merely allowing for elevation by instinct, for he did not put up his si"hts—had knocked tho bull over as dead as a door-nail. Well, I made no further remark, the occasion was too solemn for talking, but merely led the way to where the koodoo lay. There ho was, beautiful and quite still; and there high up, "bout half way down bis neck, was a neat round hole. The bullet had severed the spinal marrow, passing right through the vertebrae and away on the other side. "It was already evening when, having cut as much of the best meat as we could carry from the bull, and tied a red handkerchief and some tufts of to his spiral horns, which, by the „„. must have been nearly five feet in length, in the hope of keeping tho jackals and aasvogels (vultures) from him we finally got back to camp, to find'Pharaoh, who was getting rather anxious' at our absence, ready to greet us with the pleasing intelligence that another'ox was sick. But even this dreadful bit,of intelligence could not dash Harry's spirits; the fact of the matter being that, incredible as it may appear I do verily believe that in his heart of hearts he set down the death of that koodoo to the credit of his own skill. Now, though the lad was a tidy shot enough, .this of course was ridiculous, and I told him so very plain- presently be wrestling with so much fervor with the tariff question may with advantage to their own enlightenment tear a leaf from the history of the Anstro-Hnngariftn tariff arrangement, which Is one of the most peculiar in existence, says the New York Herald. Not long ago, it will be remembered, a strong protest against the existing treaty arose from the Hungarian side of the border. Austria and Hungary form two Independent states, both enjoying homo rule, but the common affairs of the federation arc dealt with by common authorities and organs regulated by tho constitution. The proportion In which each state has to contribute to tho common expenses Is settled by mutual agreement every ten years and there Js no constitutional provision for the treaty of commerce. But in 1867, when the Hungarian constitution was restored, it was resolved by mutual consent to maintain the customs union and the commercial nnd economic unity which had existed under the absolutist regime. Tho treaty thus concluded forms the subject of ponding negotiations for tho renewal of tbe Ausgleich. As the privilege of the Austro-Hungarian bank expires at the same time us the customs and the commercial alliance, the question of the Ausgleich is complicated by the neces- Hity of renewing the bank charter. Should the customs and commercial treaty be allowed to lapse tho two states would recover their economic and fiscal liberty. If either of them cboso to do so it could surround Itself with custom houses and shut out the products of the other without affecting the political constitution of the monarchy, but of course such proceeding would be a severe trial to the dual system. The existing treaty expires at the end of this year. Neither country is satisfied with it, but both are willing to enter into negotiations for a now fluently different, from that In Its native locality. Being without its natural Will sometimes increase inordinately, as did the Icerya purchasl in California. The San 'Jose scale, so destructive in the United States, attracts so little attention .wherever It originally came from, that ,we do not to this day know with any certainty Its original habitat. Species closely allied to the San .To so scate, natives of tho United States, are not nearly so destructive. The red scale of the orange, AspldlotUs aurnntil, in Jamaica never infests citrus fruits, but occurs on lignum-vltae and palms; how 'different are Its habits In California! In Japan there is a scale almost exactly Identical with the San Jose scale, which Infests citrus trees, which the real Sah Jose scale never does in Amor- lea. Therefore, In view of such facts as these, we can fairly say that we never know what wo are in for t when we Introduce a now Bcale.

I Climatic barriers cannot, always bo trusted. The rapid spread of some scale insects shows that they can endure great differences of climate. While the climatic barriers to tho spread of some species are real and important, it will not do to trust too much to them. It is probable that tho very rapid reproduction of coccldae enables them to quickly adapt themselves to changes of climate, through the survival of the flt- test. Thus if there are a million scales in an orchard which is touched by frost, if only ono gravid .female survives it wiii suffice to eventually restock tho orchard, and with a comparatively frost-proof race. Be this as it may, the peach scale, Diaspis nmygdall, flourishes equally at Washington, D. C., and in tho tropics; and many others could be cited which endure great differences 'of climate in different parts o£ their range. . It will now bo useful to consider the countries from which we arc liable to bo infested. From Europe wo may expect many pests of shade trees and deciduous fruit trees especially. For example, wo have already received the maple Phenacoccus, the elm Gossy- paria, tho New York plum scalo (so- called), tho L<ecanium bituberculatum, etc. It must also be remembered that 'semi-tropical scales may and unquestionably do, spread by way of European hot-houses; in this way, for example, Orthczla. insignis, a destructive West Indian species, was undoubtedly an apparently deliberate reduction In the quality of ashes. touting the year preceding the receipt of the five samples abbvo described, the tiahadft ashes sent to the statton lor analysis were of good quality. Ono sample is of interest because, though very moist, it yet contains a high percentage of potash. The ashes had most probably been exposed to rain, instead of having been leached and afterward partially dried. Three samples of domestic ashes are characterized by being very dry, and ono was probably taken soon after the ashes wero removed from the stove. Average Canada ashea contain about 12 per cent of moisture, which renders them as damp as tho average chemical fertilizer. Buyers of asihes should therefore look With suspicion on lots that appear excessively moist, because in such cases the potash is seldom equal to the proportion in average ashes. The refuse ashes wero samples from burned rubbish, principally waste paper and refuse lumber. The analytical results speak for themselves. Ashes from paper are as valueless as those from coal because tho soluble mineral matter has been leached out of the paper stock during the process of paper making. ~,__ r - .rupuiieso nttiiot. The Massachusetts Agricultural Ex- ' perlment Station has recently introduced three new varieties of millets from Japan. Among them ia a variety of bnrn-yurd gross, Paniciim Cms Gal- h, which, while it differs in its habits of growth, ia botanically identical with tho common barn-yard grass. Tho variety from Japan has boon grown for a few years at tho Massachusetts Station. Professor Brooks of that Station is very enthusiastic about it and recommends it as a fodder crop either for feeding green or for the silo, fe AMb The Wends, of northeastern many, were a branch of th6 SIfttrofilfifiiJ •who settled along tho aea in tha Sfitre century.

As a forage plant it may yield ten or twelve tons of fodder per acre, and when thinly sown in rows about n foot apart a yield of fifty to ninety bushels of seed may bo obtained. Ordinary barnyard grass is a coarse annual, with stems two to four feet in length, appearing In mid-summer, in low, somewhat damp places or on cultivated grounds. The ordinary variety is a very troublesome weed. Professor Brooks says: "This Japanese variety o£ the species has not become a weed hero however, although the seed does not 'lose all vitality during the winter. Although it Is possible that it H'ight under some circumstances become troublesome, it is hardly liable to prove moro so than clover or winter whoat, for instance." This plant is be- .ing quite extensively advertised by seedsmen under the name of Japanese Millet, or its scientific name, Panlcum Cms Galll. Wb.Uo this may provo to bo a valuable acquisition to our fodder plants and not become a means of spreading a bad weed, the Experiment Station would recommend the farmers of Maino to be cautious about purchasing seed of this new plant. Cer-; tainly the seed of Panlcum Crus Gallii should bo bought only of reliable dealers, who will bo sure to furnish the seed of tbo Japanese variety. The mischief that would bo wrought by sowing need of ordinary barnyard grass is self-evident. Chas. D. Woods, Director Maine Experiment Station.

During tho spring it is difficult to keep harness from getting wet, and it will pay well before the season's work begins to see that it 1» thoroughly oiled.
