Amur bin Nas'ur bin Amur Ilomeir! is a native of Zanzibar of unusual intelligence, who \vas taken to berlin recently to help a professor of philology there givo instructions in the language of the Snaholi. Ho had not bceii in the city long before he was seized with tho epidemic desire tc write a book. lie wrote it and published it with tho avowed purpose ol lotting his people at hoinj know what great thing.-* ho had seen since leaving them. The professor translated the book into German, . the men cheered him, and he stuck out his head through the window and answered the,cheers. When I jpushed to the front and greeted him he thanked me, took JL flower from his hand and said: 'Take that, black man.' And 1 took the rose. lie was all white, even his eyebrows. I was full of joy, nnd took tho tiower home with mo and smelt of it, and kept it many days until 1 threw it away." • Amur's tropical opinion of the lierlin climate agrees with that of most civilized persons who huve lived in the German capital: 'In lierlin it is very cold. It is cold Amur prefaces his work with a storj j s ; x mouths and warm six. And as far of his life, and then proceeds to toll ol ' us the heat is concerned, tho cold is . m.

Aden, Suez, Naples and Lisbon, nt which his ship touched, did not impress him deeply with their import anee, •'probably," says the commentators, "because too much novelty ai once was beyond his comprehension." His experience at Amsterdam, however, struck terror to his heart. "I wont into tho city," writes Amur, •'and saw how the women took men by the arm and talked with them, and I thought: 'This eity is surely the dwelling place of the evil spirits: this is the end of the world, :ind I, Amur, will be lost forever.' Sol went bac!< to the ship and lay down on my bed." Although twenty-live years old, ami u tried warrior of his native ooast, Amur wont from fright to fright after reaching Hi'rlin. "One day my teacher took me to tho land ot the beasts," he writes of :i visit to the lierlin zoological garden. "It was affiirdon, mid 1 s:iw in it lions am] •f.'izulles, ami Jeopards, and tlin wild horso (hippopotamus), and tho elephant, and giraffes and zebras, and all tho beasts of the land and water, from the big onus to the little ones, from nits to snakes from tliu littlo fishes tc the great ones. And us 1 saw them 1 wa« aniaxed. There wore hens and nil Other birds, mid every beast was in its own house, and every house was ns the house of S:iid Ali, a house of wonders | much better.

It is as fino as the sultan's; j'os, finer. And I said: 'Praise God, tho Lord oi tho worlds.' " On tho Tempclhof parade ground Amur saw soldiers whoso number he estimated as two hundred thousand. He had a not less exaggerated idea oi tho number of spectators, which scorned to him so great that ho was convinced everybody had left tho city. •Yet, when ho went back to tho city," The smart man winked at the man in front of him and pulled out his watuh. ''It's twenty minutes to twelve,' be said. "The conductor held out his hand. ' Give me your ticket or money enous'h to pay your fare, or I'll put you oft the train," he stiid sharply. The smart man was astonished, but he made no move to get out his ticket. "Gimme that ticket or your fare," said the conductor again, "and be blamed quick about it!" The smart man reluctantly pulled out his ticket. As he handed it over he said: "Tlmv in thunder did .you know I was bluffing-?" The conductor hi.ujjhcd a bit.

A Plan Which IcT Siild to POMBM M»ny Our neighbor, John Burdotto, now deceased, who gave to the world the "Long 1 'John" strawberry (yet ffrown hero to some extent), and who enjoyec the reputation of being one of tho mos progressive and successful orchardists in this vicinity of orchardists, provide! tho required surface drainage in tli last orchard (Bartlett pears) plantec by him.iu the manner shown in Fi(f. ' of tho accompanying- illustration. The land slypes slightly, and there is no difficulty of carrying every bit o the over-supply of surface water of toward a shallow ditch u.t the foot o; the orchard, and from there to the river. Year after year the plow fur rows have been turned towards tho tree rows, so that tho surface is made decidedly wavy, tho lowest part being ri(fht in the center between the rows. SUHFJCE DRAINAGE IN OKCUAnD. This tract of land is usually considered to be in need of tile drains. Mr. Bur- dctte claimed this style of surface drainage not only to be cheaper than tile drains, but just as good for his purposes. Surely the trees have grown thriftily, and begun to bear fruit, thus realizing all tlic fond expectations of their planters. The land at each side of the tree row was planted with a row of" strawberries, kept well cultivated and hoed, and mulched during the winter. The young orchards at V."oodbanks arc planted on land ol 1 similar character. There are some tile drains, but not sufficient to carry off the surface water as promptly as desirable. We therefore resort to surface drainage, but on ii. somewhat different plau, namely the one shown in Fig. 2 of the same illustration. Wo round up the tree rows by throwing throe or four furrows from each side againt-t the trees, and then plow the strip in the center, making a well-rounded bed. This lias room enough for two rows of potatoes, cabbages peas, sweet corn, or whatever hoed crop we wish to plant. The coarse manure, while the trees are young, is all applied on tho bed between tiie rows. The hoed erop gett the cliici benefit of these manure applications. It docs not encroach on the space which properly belongs to the trees. The vegetables pay for the cultivation, tho use. of land, and the manure, while the trees nrc making 1 good growth and are brought to bearing ago witli little expense. We have learned to fear the effects of growing grain in the orchard. It is a bad practice, giving us sickly, stunted trees. The grain crops rob the trees not only of the plant foods, but also of the moisture required for thrifty growth. With good manuring, either by means of stable manure or commercial fertilizers, however, we find no serious objection to the use of the center beds in growing millet, rye or oats and peas for cutting green while the trees are yet young.— American Gardening.

Green, horticulturist of the Ohio experiment station, in bulletin forty-eight gives tho following summary of results of spraying: 1. Tho profit to be derived from spraying orchards often exceeds $20 per acre, and for vineyards much more. The fruit crop of tho stato would be •nhanced in value several million dollars annually if the practice were gen- srally followed. 2. Combined fungicides and insecti- ;ides are recommended whenever applicable, because of a saving of time; a less liability of injuring foliage; greater efficiency in some cases, and as a precautionary measure in others. 8. Dilute Bordeaux mixture, eopper- . . ,.^ •uteful f onfficldn iof-'the. treatment of the dlseiae* herein mentioned, and the first has the widest range of utefulnesi of all 4. I?n.rly spraying is the key to success in the use of fungicides. 5. For the plum-curculio and shot- hole fungus as Bordeaux mixture and Paris green combined, making three or four applications. It is not known that this areatmcnt will prevent the black-knot, but cut/ting away and burning diseased branches will accomplish the result 6. Srabby apples rot much earlier than those free from scab, and spraying with fungicides will save at least fifty per cent of this loss. 7. Spraying with fungicides in tlio season of 1S93 prevented much of the early dropping of apples, which is usually attributed to wet weather. 8. For apples, two applications of Bordeaux mixture before blooming are advised, and two of the same mixture after blooming, with Paris green added, 9. The same .treatment is recommended for the pear as for the apple before blooming, but the copper-arsenic solution is advised after blooming 1 . 10. The Bordeaux mixture, if used too late, causes a russet appearance on boll) pears and apples. 11. Tho quince may be treated the same as apples, or with Bordeaux mixture alone. )i The treatment, advised for tho cherry consists in making two or Uiree applicationsof paris green—two ounces to lift.y gallons of water. lit. i'caeh trees and American varieties of plums have, very tender foliage and ra'.ist bo treated with weak mixtures if :it all. H. Raspberries may be treated with Jiordwuix mixture alone. Grapes with the Mime until the fruit sets, after which use copper carbonate. Potatoes should bo sprayed .it least five times • with Bordeaux mixture and paris green. USEFUL IMPLEMENT. How to Construct a Good Marfcer for Onion Ground. The home garden is supposed to be in a high state of cultivation. The regular annual allowance of manure will in all probability be fully sufficient, oven for this crop, which is known to thrive best on plenty and rich food. If j'Ou have the manure, however, a light top- dressing on tho plowed ground will be sure to give good results. Deep plowing is not necessary, but the surface should be well fined and kept well stirred during the entire season o: MAKKIill FOB OXIOX OROUXD. growth. A small bed can bo marked out with a garden line, or a rake or hoe handle. For larger operations we need a marker that will indicate tho rows without leaving regular furrows such as we need for seed sowing. I have used variojs styles of markers, but have SPen nothing that in my estimation will surpass the device hero reproduced from Practical Farmer. The illustration explains itself. Tho teeth arc twelve inches apart, and their points run just far enough below tho surface of Uic wheel to leave light marks. The onion plants are then "dibbled" in, three inches apart iu tho rovr. At this rate it will take about one thousand plants to set a square rod. of ground. l"«ct» About Celery Seed. Celery seed always takes considerable time to germinate, old seed taking longer than new seed, hence one should be careful to procure it where one Is confident of its being fresh. In. tbe. hotbed or greenhouse, where the soi.1 is warm and kept permanently moist, it will start sooner than iu tho open 6 -rouud, since there it is sown early in ,he spring and before the soil is thoroughly warmed; but ev»u in a hotbed or forcing house it takes about two weeks to start When the young plants are about two inches high they should je transplanted into a well enriched Ded and kept carefully watered and ;ended, under which conditions they will make a vigorous growth and bo eady in g-ood time for tho final setting. ' Best Strawberries for MarKot. The largest strawberries are not always tho best for tho table, though they sell better in market. As customers are compelled to judgo from appearances, however, all fruit should bo attractive as possible. It is better to have a variety that can bo shipped to a great distance than, one that Is extra large and not firm, as fruit I* subject to injury on the journev if soft.
