WHAT 1897 HAS SEEN.
RECORD OF THE IMPORTANT
EVENTS OF THE YEAR.
Grreco-Tnrkish War and the Cuban
Insurrection The Great Strike in
the Coal Fields Political Changes of
A Chronological Table.
The year 1897 has been, it might be said
almost a commonplace one, since its com
mencement, that is, no events of over
whelming moment have taken place, but
there has been no dearth of important
occurrences. The- war between Turkey
and Greece, the struggle for freedom in
Cuba, the costly and long-drawn-out
strike in the Ohio and Pennsylvania coal
fields, the change of national administra
tion, the enactment of the Dingley tariff
law, the disastrous spring floods in the
Mississippi valley and autumn fires In the
West and Northwest, and the epidemic of
yellow fever in the Southern States are
clearly not matters of small importance
In the history of the world. The year has
been an unusual one from the fact that
but few men of really great reputation
have passed from the stage of their earth
ly labors; their number can be computed
upon the fingers of the two hands.
The most important events of the year
are recorded below in the order of, their

The Government 6f the United States
owns in the city of Washington 1,600,000
volumes of literature. Of these about one
half, or 787.715, are in the congressional
library. The remainder are scattered
through the various executive depart
ments. The daily number of readers in
the congressional library averages 3,320.
About 700 persons, including the mem
bers of hoth houses nnd high officials of
the Government, are entitled to draw
books and take them away from the build
ing, and the average number loaned out
in such a way is 1,446. It is a favorable
commentary upon the honesty and care of
our public men that during a period of
thirty years the .number of books lost or
not returned was onlv five in a thousand.
Large numbers of petitions, supported
by many signatures and uniform in their
phraseology, are being presented to the
House of Representatives. They ask the
passage of a series of laws to protect the
morals of the public. For example, to
prohibit gambling in stocks, produce, rac
ing pools and other forms of speculation
by telegraph, to prohibit the transmission
of stock quotations for speculative pur
poses, and the transmission in the mails
of newspapers containing pictures or de
scriptions of prize fights, to prohibit the
exhibition of kinetoscope reproductions of
prize fights and other brutalizing specta
cles, nnd to prohibit the transportation
from State to State of materials for such
The ladies of the cabinet are decidedly
put out by the edict that forbade their
New Year's receptions and the dinners
that were to precede and follow. They
do not see any occasion for it. The Pres
ident did not ask or even suggest a sus
pension of social affairs. He' told the
members of his cabinet he should close the
White House for thirty days, although he
did not think it was necessary for them
to follow his example, but without con
sulting their wives, they agreed to do so.
The husbands have since had an unhappy
time, and the Washington social world
has offered them no sympathy.
The opposition to the ratification of the
Hawaiian treaty has simmered down al
most entirely to the sugar trust, the Louis
iana planters and the beet-root sugar
manufacturers. There are a few Senators
who oppose the treaty on principle, as
they believe it inexpedient for the United
States to assume the responsibility of gov
erning any detached territory, and several
on the Democratic side have joined the
opposition because they regard annexa
tion as a Republican measure.
Chairman Loud of the House Commit
tee on Postoffices has been working during
the recess on the report of the committee
on the Loud bill, and has practically com
pleted 4t. He believes that the measure
will effect a saving of at least $10,000,000
annually, and will wipe out the enormous
deficit that confronts the Potsofflce De
partment every year. Mr. Loud believes
the bill is much stronger this session than
last, and, while not absolutely confident,
thinks it will finally carry.
The agents of the Cuban junta in
Washington justify the assassination of
Col. Ruiz as necessary to intimidate the
cowardly and corrupt men in their ranks
who arc likely to be allured into making
terms with the Spanish authorities either
through fear or bribery. They say that
hereafter no Spanish agent will dare ap
proach an insurgent camp, and that it will
be dangerous for any stranger to do so.
The distressing death of Miss Leila Her
bert has caused a shock to her many
friends and acquaintances in Washing
ton. She wns a young woman of beau

that her suicide was. due to fear that she
might be a permanent cripple.

CLAItVlS TO BE 140 YEARS OLD.
Georgia Negro Who Says He Remem
bers tlie Revolution.
Satpuel Andrew Gibbons is an old
negro, who, if his claims are true,
is the oldest living native of Chatham
County. Gibbons says that he Is 140
years old and that he was 17 years
old when the revolutionary war be
gan. A reporter met Gibsons on Bay
street yesterday and had quite a little
chat with him. He does not begin. to
look as old as he claims to be, but
he gives circumstantial details which
go to prove him a very old man. A
peculiar feature of his story is that
he says that up to a month ago, when
he returned here, he had not been in
Savannah for seventy years. The old
man is not in his dotage by any means,
and uses pretty good English.
"I was bora on a Fairlawn planta
tion, over that way (west of the city),"
he said, "and I belonged to William
Gibbons. The Gibbonses owned a
whole lot of property here then. I
s'pose they own some of it yet. I used
to run a barber-shop right over on that
comer," pointing to the corner of Bay
arnd Montgomery streets.
"I don't know the names of the
streets now, 'cept one or two. They
didn't have all these streets when I
left here. That street they called
South Broad used to be the common
where the soldiers mustered. They
had a market here then.- but it was a
wooden building. I don't know wheth
er it was the same square the market
Is now on or not.
"Yes, sir, I was here when the first
revolution in the United States of
America took place. I was 17 years old
"You saw General Washington, of
"Yes sir; I saw him. All the peo
ple turn out to see him, and they fired
"Did you see Lafayette?"
"Yes, sir. He was the man they put
down carpets in the streets for him
to walk on. They had a big gather
in' in Monument Square and a whole
lot of soldiers. They don't treat Presi
dents now like they used to."
The old man was evidently under
the impression that Lafayette was a
"I wns sold away from here seventy
years ago," he said, "and brought $000.
I have been living all about in Florida
and Alabama ever since. I remember
the falling stars. That was seventy
The old man was positive in all" his
statements, and could not admit that
he might be mistaken in any of his
"I left a daughter in Florida when I
went to Alabama," he said. "She was
just big enough to tie in a napkin. I
went back there the other day anu

Tliis statement, if true, would appear
to be pretty good evidence of very old
age. If the old man was, as he says,
17 years old when the revolution be
gan, he would be 139 years old to-day.
sr that his statement that he Is 140
would not be much out of the way.
His statement that the "falling stars"
occurred seventy years ago is not far
wrong. The great meteoric shower
occurred in 1833; that is, sixty-four
years ago. He gives a circumstantial
account of this event, which Is not re
markable, however, as, according to
his own account, he must have been
an old' man then. Savannah News.
The Mysterious Assassin.
One night, shortly after tne cele
brated battle of Fontenoy, its hero,
Marshal De Saxe, arrived at a little
village in which was an inn with a
peculiar reputation. It was said that
in this inn there were ghosts who
stabbed or strangled all. who attempted
to pass the night in a certain room.
The conqueror of Fontenoy was far

a profound slumber, with his sentinel
ensconced in an arm chair by the fire.
About 1 o'clock in the morning the
watcher by the fire, wanting to get
some sleep himself, approached his
master to awaken him, but to his call
he received no response. Thinking the
Marshal soundly asleep he called again.
Startled at the continued silence, the
man shook him; the Marshal did uot
As he lifted his hands from the form

that they were red. The Marshal was
lying in a pool of blood! Drawing down
the cover the soldier saw a strange
thing. An enormous insect was fas

sucking at a wound from which the
blood flowed freely.
The man sprang to the fireplace,
grasped the tongs, and ran back to the
bed. Seizing the monster, he cast It j

A little boy dropped his drumstick

In vain he entreated his. parents, the

Great was the consternation when !

had found the plate. "Where?" was
the cry. "Down the well," replied j
Tommy. "I saw it quite plain shining

There have been patented all kinds
of schemes devised for the purpose of

Inferior grade, and palming it off aa

Don't Attempt to Fatten Shouts in the
Pasture -Give Milk Cows Good Care
Beans Are a Profitable Crop-Fowls
Should Be Fed Slowly.
The shoats for butchering should be
brought in out of the clover arid woods
pasture and put in the pens for fatten
ing. It is a great waste of feed to try
and fatten them in the pasture with
the sows and pigs. Clean the pens out;
then, if possible, give them a good coat
of whitewash. Put four shoats into an
elght-by-ten pen; this will give them
plenty of room to exercise in, and also
plenty of room at the trough. If they
are lousy, pour a little' coal oil down
the back over the head and behina the
ears, and down the legs. One good
sprinkling and rubbing will answer.
Give the shoats thick millfeed slop
night and morning all they will eat
up clean, and no more. ' Then give a
few ears of soft corn to each; -m
mence with a little corn at first, but
gradually increase the- amount until
they get all they will eat. At noon give
cabbage leaves or boiled pumpkin and
small potatoes. They should "have'-a
little hard coal to eat every second day

and dry. A half peck of flaxseed meal

the shoats will be fat enough "to mar

rare of the Milk Cows.
When there is heavy frost on the
i grass, keep the milk -cows in until the
: frost is dissolved by the sun. Young
j cattle and cows that are left out at
nitrht should have a rough shed built
' for them to go under at night and when
the weather is stormy. A roor made oi
; noles and covered with two feet of
I straw will answer. If .the pasture is
abundant, the young stock may oe lert
! out until after Thanksgiving..' After
i two or more hard frosts; there is not
: much substance in the pasture; the
cows should be grain-fed night and
; morning, and at night give to eacn one
i an armful of corn fodder. An excei
i lont rnln ration for larsre.cows in milk
! is eight quarts of bran, four quarts of
corn chop and one quart of linseed

half in the morning and the remainder
at night. During mild weather mix
I this feed with cold water; when the
weather becomes cold mix with warm
water, and add one tablespoonful of
salt daily. Baltimore American.
Beans a Profitable Crop.
Beans are a profitable crop, as much
so as any raised; almost every farm has
land well adapted to bean culture. I
I have raised beans on a small scale, and
i found them very profitable. They
have not proved very difficult to grow
! than most other crops, and were read-
1 ily sold to private customers at ten
j cents per quart. In harvesting they
; will not bear much delay; a wet spell
: will spoil many. They should be treat
! ed to the fumes of carbon, as the wee
; vil is apt to destroy them. Peas, green
! or marrowfat, may also be made a spe
: cial crop, as large quantities are con-
aumed In all cities, and but very little
: produced near some. Few farmers
raise what they themselves use, pre
ferring to buy, yet retail dealers pay
$1 per bushel. This season I have been
very successful with a novelty in the
bean line; It is New Kidney Wax; beans
are pure white and firm; the stalks
hold up from the ground well while
, young; pods are of a rich golden yel
low, buttery flavor and a, novelty of de
cided merits. I also raised the. Lazy
; Wife; these are very nice. I salted a
; half barrel down. They are also white
l and firm when ripe, and-are. .equally
1 useful as a snap, shell or soup ""bean,
j For dry peas for winter, I likgthe Ear
l llest of All, a smooth pea; it Vooks
: done when dry in half an hoifr, ' and
has a pleasant flavor. I have never had
I any to sell, but could have sold- five or
six bushels at home. As a green pea,
they are profitable, as they are so very
early, bear well and ripen even. The
ground can be cleared for some other
crop. Farm and Home.
Apple Trees by Roadsides.
The owner of land through wnich a
highway runs is also the owner of the
land, and is entitled to make any use
of it that will not interfere with the
right of the public to travel on it. It Is
not generally practicable for fanners
to crop land beside the roadbed, though
sometimes a patch of corn or potatoes
beside a road not much used will give
paying crops. Perhaps the- best use
such land can be put to- is to plant it
with apple trees or other fruit trees,
protecting the young trees while small
from attacks of wandering stock. Isol
ated trees, planted where they have
plenty of room to spread and plenty of
sunlight, often yield more fruit than do
apple trees in closely planted orchards.
Feed Fowls Slowly.
One of the difllculties in feeding
fowls is that, as given by the poulterer,
th food is in a mass and can be gob
bled down far too quickly. In Its nat
ural state, the fowl hunting for food
Is obliged to eat. slowly, one grain at a
time. Usually, after each mouthful,
the hen Is obliged to scratch for more
So Ingrained is this instinct that a hen
with chickens will scrat h and cluck
when she comes to a pile oi grain. One
of the reasons why corn is a bad feed
for fowls is that the grain is large, and
If shelled and thrown out by handfuls,
the fowls eat it much too fast' for their
good. The true way to feed hens is to
mix their grain with chaff or straw, so
that they must scratchfor It. If cov
ered with mellow earth, it will be still
better, as the dust thus raised will rid
the fowls of vermin.
Chestnut Trees Profitable.
Those who have' chestnut grove
and keep It free from depredators may
find it a source of profit. We. know of
one or two such grov"es which are only
Datural fruit, but which yield returns
with no labor except for gathering the
nuts better than could be got for Usual
farm crops. But to secure profitable re- I
turns the public must be excluded-!
Men and boys who club the trees while
the nuts are green to brlns; them down
will disfigure and injure the frees, so
that after a few years the trees will
yield little or nothing. Chestnut trees,
If the fruit is of good quality, are valu
able property, and their fruit should
be protected. There are several im
proved varieties of chestnut, some of
which will begin- bearing when three
years old. These should be chosen if
new plantations of chestnuts are' to be
made, or scions of the" new varieties
irive best on dry
rounds, or in a"wet
et treading wet grass
soft and eaaUy bruls-
ed. This, If not cared for, will develop
Into foot rot. It used to be the practice
of good shepherds to dress their sheep
two or three times during the summer,
by applying blue vitriol to those of them
whose feet were in any way sore. This
was done long before the doctors had
begun to talk learnedly about microbes
and germs. It Is known now that foot
rot is a germ disease, and blue vitriol,
which is a sulphate of copper, is one of
the best germicides known. It is a curi
ous fact that the practical cure of foot
rot was discovered through experi
ments made by farmers long before
the scientists had found out what caus
ed the disease, or could devise any the
ory whereby it might be cured.
Relative Cost of Beef and Butter.
Prof. T. L. Hacker of the Minnesota
experiment station has been testing the
comparative cost of making beef and
butter. So he fed four steers 'along
with his herd of cows, giving them,
however, a ration for making beef,
while to the cows was given the feed
appropriate for milk and butter produc
tion. After six weeks feeding he fig
ured the cost of the butter at three
cents per pound, while the beef was
3 4-10 cents per pound, as nearly as he
could estimate it from live weight. It
Is fairly to be presumed that in the
cost of butter the labor required to
make It was not estimated. It is prob
able also that the cows experimented
on were in full flow of milk, and there
fore could, for a short time, produce
butter at very, low rates. But the ani
mal has to be kept twelve mouths with
much less-product uf milk, in order to
enable it to make this low record.
Fattening Yearling Lambs.
Both sheep and lambs are much high
er than a year ago. Hence there is less
Inducement for farmers to buy sheep
and lambs to fatten. With so good
prospects for wool it is likely that
sheep and lambs will be dear for some
time to come. Still those who like
spring lamb will have it, no matter
what the-price, and the fattened lam:)
a . year-.-old is quite as good as that
dressed when only three or four
months old. It requires more careful
feeding to keep these yearling lambs
In fattening condition than It does
three or four year old sheep. But the
lamb when well fed will gain twice as
many pounds per week as the sheep,
and the gain In price per pound will be
considerably higher. Americau Culti
vator. Care of Seed Corn.
Probably no better place for the ;
braids of corn saved in the ear for next
spring's seeding can be found than to
hang them beside .the chimney, where
the heat from the stove or fireplace will
protect them from freezing until fully
dry. About as good a place as this, and
some think better, is In the smoke
house; where the hams and bacon are
cured. But in either case the braids
should be visited1 often to see that noth- I
Ing gets at them. The squirrel is the
worst enemy of sweet corn, because he
only digs out the chit or germ of t' e
very soundest and best corn. He will
leave an entire corn cob full of corn
more or less damp, and feast on that
which has been thoroughly dried for
seed. The germ of sound, dry Corn
has a flavor much like a nut, and it is
Test New Varieties
Every season the farmers receive so
licitations or temptations to purchase
seeds or plants of some new variety,
and yet .If they will read the circulars
and descriptions, as well as the claims,
in favor of the new varieties of the
past, they will find wonderful claims
In. favor of some that are barely recog
nized now. This is because something
better comes every season (though
some new varieties are worthless), but
the production and quality of all kinds
of fruit have b-en improved by the in
troduction every year of new Candi
dates for favor. No farmer or fruit
grower should accept the claims in fa
vor of a new tree or vine, but should
test it himself by procuring only one or
two for that purpose.
LinBeed vs. Cottonseed Meal.
Both "flax ahd linseed meal are now
so cheap that there is no reason why
cottonseed meal should be brought
North to. feed. No young animals nor
hogs of any age should be fed cotton
seed mea,l. It Is very difficult of diges
tion, fhe loss of animals killed by cot
tonseed meal more than counterbalance
the gain from feeding it where It does
not prove injurious. Of course linseed
meal must be fed In small quantities,
but It Is not so dangerous for young
stock as cottonseed meal, which for
calves and pigs is often fatal in very
Warm Stalls for Cows.
Take two cows and give one a warm
stall, with clean bedding, allowing the
other a stall in which there is a crack
in the wall, which lets the wind come
through. The cow that is comfortable
and warm-will give more milk than the
other, because shB5s warmth in her

ITses ot Porpoise Skin.
Everybody knows that porpoise skin
makes good shoe strings; good, at least,
as far as durability is concerned. It is
not so well known that porpoise leath
er also makes fxd shoes, and that
there is quite a demand for them. A
porpoise leather shoe, if made well In
the first place, always fits well; for,
while it is very stretchy material, it
can never be made to cover more sur
face, no matter how much it is stretch
ed. What it is extended in one direc
tion it loses in another. This peculiar
ity makes It very close fitting, and at
the same time soft and pliable, on the
foot. It is used chiefly for shoes by
people anxious to keep their feet dry,
as it is absolutely impermeable to

SEVER TOO ST "UK.
Against the probability or possibility of
mischance or accident we can never be too
sure. But if we should stop to consider
how great is the chance of sudden death,
we would be made too timid and unhappy.
Caution is needed not to be foolhardy, and
precaution to know what is best to do when
an- accident happens. One dav this winter
two men were walking, and one said:
'We're too timid in treading on slippery
plares. I tread firmly and never think
about them, and so escape a fall." "Never
be too sure," said the other, "it is that that
throws you off' and makes the fall the
liarder." Just then they came upon a place
povered with thin snow, where kids had
been sliding. The first speaker slipped, and
came down with his foot turned, and badly
sprained his ankle. He was a cripple oil
crutches until a short time ago, having used
many things without benefit. Up to that
time he had not used St. Jacobs Oil, which,
when used, cured him completely, so that
he walks as usual. There is a probability
that for the rest of the season he will walk
i autiously. w ith the precaution of having
