A. Harrow For Leveling the Farrow
I Slice and a Good Plank Drag.
An Ohio Farmer correspondent sends
that paper a drawing of an implement
lor leveling the furrow slice and says:
The handles are seldom needed to lift
the harrow, but I found the left one
struck the plow beam every once In
awhile when the harrow wanted to tip
over too far from any cause. For this
purpose I had to brace the handles
quite wide apart forty Inches too far
for use Ju corn rows, but they can be
placed in or out, ns occasion requires,
by substituting another round betweerf
the handles. Near the rear at the left
is a crooked steel or Iron rod seven-

corner to the upper inside corner, with
a nut to hold It
The teeth I used were not all knife
shaped, like the one Illustrated, yet I
think it would be we'll to make them
-all of this style, as holes can then be
fcored perpendicularly" any place you
.find the teeth are needed or work best,
and they can be changed very easily
"With only a wrench to unscrew the
nut. The holes should be large enough
so the teeth will slip in or out easily,
-as they can be screwed up tight to hold
them in the direction desired.
This little harrow Is attached to the
lngletree of tho horse in the furrow
"with the short chain so that it will
larrow the furrow turnod the round
before, working Just forward of the
furrow being turned by the plow. This
furrow, however, may fall partially on
the rear side of the harrow working In
the furrow. This does no harm, but
only helps t hold that point down to
Its place. The lft upright support for
the handle should be placed well for

down but little, so they will not rub the
ground. If all tbe teeth are made like
the one indicated, the holes can all be

and the right slope or slant back will
be obtained. The hinge at the front is
made of a pair of strap hinges placed

straps, make a good hitch as well as

i Whales In the Thames.
, In former times the appearance of a
whale In the river Thames was consid
ered ominous. One was caught od
Greenwich three months prior to the
death of Oliver Cromwell, and the com
mon opinion was expressed by Heath
in his "Flagellum." ''It pleased God,"
he remarks, "to usher in his end with
a great whale three months before,
June 2, that came up as far as Green
wich and there was killed." Evelyn,
in his "Diary," under the date of June
B, 1155s, mentions that a whale was
killed off Greenwich and that it drew
an "infinite concourse to see it by wa
ter, horse, coach and on foot from Lon
don and all parts." According to Rob
ert Hubert, In his "Catalogue of Nat
ural Itarltles," the tongue of this whale
was exhibited daily for some time at
the "Miteiy near the west end of St
In February, 1857, another whale
.Was caught In the Thames, and in the
Times of that month appeared an ad
vertisement for a piece of ground, some
40 feet by 60 feet, "on which to exhibit !
a whale." The piece of ground adver
tised ror was round in tne Mile jsna
road, and the whale was exhibited un
til March 14. .In the same month
'namely, on March 21 expired the'
house of commons, which had been
elected in 1852.
This is the fate of sufferers from Kidney trouble, as the disease is so insiduous that often people hava
serious Kidney trouble without knowing the real cause of their illness, as diseased kidneys allow tho
impurities to stay in the system and attack the other
organs. This accounts for the many different
symptoms of Kidney Disease.

On one of the times when Barry Sul
livan, the great Irish tragedian, was
playing Hamlet a certain clever low
comedian named Hoskins was the
gravedlgger. After answering Sulli
van's question, "How long will a man
lie in the earth ere he not?" Hoskins
proceeded with the business of illus
trating his reply.
Taking up Yorick's skull he spoke
'the words of the text: "Now, here's a
skull that hath lain in the earth three
and twenty years. Whose do you think
It was. '
"Nay, I know not," replied Sullivan
"This skull, sir," said Hoskins, "was
TMavolo Antonio's, whom Booth fought
In this city!"
The house roared with laughter,
rwtlle Sullivan stamped and fumed, ex
claiming: "Yorickls, sirl Yorick's!"
j "No," said Hoskins coolly, when the
tumult had subsided, and taking up
another skull 'This la Yorick's skull,

I Bottom of a Sea Falltn Oat.
Scientists tell us that, counting from
the sea level, the lowest body of water
on the globe is the Caspian sea. For
centuries its surface has been gradu
ally settling down until now it is eighty-five
feet lower than that of its nenr
neighbor, the Black sea, which also lies
far below the level of the oceans. The
'common conclusion all along has been
that the Caspian was simply losing Its
waters by evaporation, but recent in
'vestigatlon shows that this is not the
'case. Soundings made and compared
'with records of soundings made over
100 years ago reveal the astounding
fact that there Is even a greater depth
of water now than then. This leaves
but one hypothesis that would seem at
all tenable that the bottom of the sea
Is actually sinking There is much
speculation in scientific circles as to
what will be the final outcome.
m 4 scantling fastened together with
rods with small blocks two Inches thick
between the scantlings, with rings on
the m!s of the rods hitched to by
means of rods and a ring or a chain
and ring. Tbe slat is for the purpose of
lifting the drag to free it from rubbish
or stone. This drag .carries fine dirt
along between the scantlings, which
fills tip all low places and levels the
.ground. A drag of this description
eight feet long is a good load for a
team of horses without a harrow at
tached behind. If more weight is want
ed, the man can ride the drag. It does
effectual work in leveling and putting
the ground In order. .

nice Paper Soi Made Prom Rice.
Ilice paper Is not made from rice nor
from rice stalks, nor has it any con
nection whatever with rice. It Is of
Chinese manufacture and is made
from the pith of a certain tree resem
bling the elder. The pith Is extracted
from the tree In large cylindrical mass
es, and with sharp knives the Chinese
pare off the cylinder till Instead of a
cylindrical form they have a large flat
sheet This is pressed and other sheets
added until the required thickness is
secured. The paper is then rudely
sized and is ready to use. It was called
rice paper under the supposition that
when It was lirst introduced into Eu
rope It was. made from rice stalks, and
the name has never been changed.
Cheeses come, under three general
heuthK who!- milk, skim or sour milk
and whole milk and cream. Tbe ripen
ing of cheese, upon which depends Its
flavor, is due to the action of bacteria,
which are ever present In milk; also In
the rennet which is used in the manu
facture. Clieexe which has been Im
properly handled is apt to accumulate
deleterious bacteria. Cheese has great
