the figures of total production wi re liisi

liow the world was going to get along
with so light supply, without pric.-.
advancing to a point that would turn
enough consumption to subsumes fm
wheat, to make the less quantity of ii
do for the whole crop year. M.t pen.
pie thought then that nothing short of
00O to (1 a bushel would do it. There
is where the mistake seems to lie.
About 75o in the primary markets
turned away enough wheat breud eaters
to substitute to lengthen sufficiently
the supply, for all practical purposes.
Even at the moderate prices prevailing
last week, this country's foreign ship
ments were away under 2,000.(iou
bushels. The low price of corn at '.'.if,
of rye at 3.')e, barley at 2."c, and oats at
18o are particularly attractive to the
pracitcial economist who supplies the
family table, in these times, when so
many are idle or in a state Imploring
UXUI i.'leness. The official wheat
yield in this country was something ol
an error, but the usual commercial reck
oning was not much astray. The fault
of calculation seems to be in the price
that would turn so many consumers to
tho cheaper cereals.

lu this province there are live kings,
who are own bi-otl.en,. I will tell you
uboiit each lu tin 11. The province Is
the tliiest nud noblit In the world.
At this end of the province reigns olie.
of those live royal druthers, who is a
crowned king and his name is Sonder
Hand! Dinar, lu this kingdom they
tlnd tine and great pearls; and I will
tell how they a to got.
The sea here forms n gulf between
the Island of Sellau and the mainland.
And nil round this gulf the water has
a depth of 110 mote than t.-n or twelve
fathoms, and lu some places 110 more
than two fathoms. The pciirliishi -is
take their vessels, gnat and small, and
proceed into this gulf, where they sio;i
from the beginning of April (ill the
middle of May. They go tlisl lo a place
called I'.ettelar, II lid then go sixty 11. lies
Into the gulf. Hire they cast anchor
and shift from llielr large Vessels into
small Incus. The merchants divide in
to arloiis companies, and each of these
must engage n uuiiilier of men oil
wages, hiring them for April and half
of May. Of nil the product, they have
first to pay the king, as Ids royally, the
tenth part. Ami they must also pay
those men who charm the great lislics,
to prevent them from Injuring the
divers while engaged in seeking pearls
under water, one-twentieth pan of nil
that they may take.
These lislichanners nre termed
A bra ia man; and their charm holds
gooil for that day only, for at night
they dissolve the charms so that the
tlslics can work mischief at their will.
These Abralainan know also how- to
charm beasts and birds and every liv
ing thing. When the men have got Into
the small boats they Jump Into the
water and dive to the bottom, which
may be at a depth of from four lo
twelve fathoms, and there they remain
as long us they are able. And there
they tlnd the shells that contain the
pearls, and these they put lino a net
bag tied round the waist, and mount
up to the sui face with them, and then
dive anew. When ihey can't hold their
breath any longer they come up ngaln, :
nud. nftcr a 111 tie, dow n they go om e
more, mid so they go on all day. These ;
shells are lu shape like oysters or sea- !
hoods. And lu these shells are found
pen lis, gnat and small, of every kind,
slicking In the tl.-sh of the shellfish.
In tills manner pearls are fished lu
great quantities, for lln-nce in fact ;
come the pearls which nre sprea'l all
over the world. And the king of that
state hath a very gnat receipt and
treasure from bis dues upon those '
pearls. St. Nicholas.
Finding Water In llie Desert.
The Western man who got waler In
the desert by the aid of a reed and a .
sponge evidently got the idea from the
liushmeii of Ihe Kalahari desert In Af- ;
rlcil. These pie often live scores of
miles from plac. s where waler comes
to the surface. During certain times;
of the year sharp storms pass over the .
Kalahari, covering the apparently arid
region Willi the brightest of verdure
and filling for a few short days the !
wider courses with roaring torrents, j
The bushineii find waler by digging 111 :
the bottoms of these dried up river;
beds. They dig a hole three or four j
feet deep and I ben tie a sponge ;o ii
hollow reed. The s ge absorbs the ;
moisture at the bottom of the hole, and !
the natives draw It up Into their i
mouths through the reed. j

Just as well; but you will tlnd tlia: you
must pay big Interest for the pru lege

at a disadvantage with your cred ior.

you can then make your half of the

Every basement barn built for hous
ing slock should have a well under It.
lu this way wafer of proper warmth
can always be sisuinsl for cattle, and a
lub or kettle kept full all the time will
add greatly lo their comfort. It is well
for all stock to run out of doors in cold
weather for a while each day, but the
animals ought never to ls forced to
di ink w ater nearly or quite dow n to the
freezing temperature. We have scores
of times seen cows turn away from the
water under a hole In the tee because
they were so chilled that further drink
ing of Icy water was Impossible. Much
;f the lack of thrift of cattle in winter
Is tine to drinking he cold waler. and
will be remedied by having a supply of
water from a well in the barn base

It Is the rapid alleiuatlou from cold
to heat and from dry lo moist that
makes posts decay so rapidly. This Is,
of course, worse on sandy soil, through
which the 11 1 r rapidly percolates, while
In the heavy soil Ihe nir does not enter.
The best preservative for posts in any
kind of soil is to thoroughly dry them
ami then char their surface. After rub
bing off the flakes of coal dip the char
red ends In oil, taking care that both
Ihe charring nud the oiling come up
above the point where the post enters
Hie soil. Posts treated thus have been
found sound after fifteen or twenty
years, when, without this treatment,
posts 011 sandy soil had rotted at the
junction with the ground after eight
jr ten years service.

In case of a very young one left wii li

Into a long necked bottle, so that Hie

colt, lasting Ihe milk upon 'lie moist
ened rag will begin to suck It. After a
little time the young animal will learn
to drink, and after that all Is plain

W orklnu Thrce-llorae Tcuiim.
The true economy of tenm work Is
better understood by Western farmers
than by Ihe average of farmers In the
East. It Is to the Western fanner thai
we owe the idea of cultivating hoed
crops with two horses, requiring 110
Ktoppages, while the man may if he
chooses ride behind and manage the
Inns, so that none of the grain Is de
stroyed. It Is rather more difficult to
turn two horses on a cultivator at the
end of the row. Therefore, this plan Is
best adapled to large fields where Ihe
rows are long. Iiul three horses will
on heavy plowing do nearly twice as
much as will two horses. Now that
horses ore cheap, It Is the farmer's In
terest more than ever before to make
horse lalsir accomplish nil It will, with
as little as possible of the much more
expensive human labor.--Cultivator.
Hmut In Corn.
It Is n general rule lu farming flint the
same crop should never be grown on
land two years In sm-eesslon. With
most crops exhaustion of the kinds of
plant food required by the crop make
this rule Imperative. The second crop
Is so far Inferior thai II does not yield
a profit. Hut corn derives its nutrition
so largely from the ulr that It can be
grown In succession so far as the sup
ply of plant food Is concerned. Hut It
Is found in the West w here this policy
has le"-n mostly practiced that the
smut on stalks and ears Is so greatly
Increased as In some rases to take one
fifth or more of the crop. The smut
spores live In the soil through the win
ter, and nre ready to attack the corn
very early If planted on the ground
where corn was grown the year before.-Ex.0
