S alt on W heat .—The useful
effects of salt on wheat has been shown
by recent experiments on the farm of
the Royal Agricultural Society of
England. An acre of wheat dressed
with 300 pounds of salt yielded 39
bushels of grain, while an adjoining
acre without salt dressing yielded only
29 bushels of wheat. On another field
salt was sown, then it was ploughed
twice and sowed with wheat, and there
were 40 bushels of grain per acre har

chusetts uses salt at the rate of three
bushels per acre in growing winter
wheat with success, and thinks that it
prevents rusting of the straw.

The St. Joseph Gazette says: The
ladies of Washington are taking a
hand in the presidential dispute. A
Washington correspondent says that
only a few weeks ago, at a recep-
tion given hy one of the Cabinet
ladles, there was the usual attendance
of the wives of both Democratic and
Republican Senators and Representa
tives. It happened that in the general
gossip which is largely engaged in on
such occasions, the conversation turned
on the dignity and grace with which
certain ladies had presided over the
White House. Some of the ladies re
marked that Mrs. Secretary Fish would
have filled the difficult position with
credit, whereupon the wife of one of
the Cabinet Ministers present said that
Mrs. Hayes would not be second to
even Mrs. Fish in this high station.
A lady, the wife of a Democratic Con
gressman, said, laughingly, that Mrs.
Pelton, the sister of Mr. Tilden, was a
very accomplished lady and would
grace the White H>use, whereupon
Mrs. Secretary Morrill said, with con
siderable heat, “Tilden will never oc
cupy the White House. We have the
army and the navy, and if force is
necessary to inaugurate Hayes it will
be used.” This was said with such
pointedness of speech and the manner
of Mrs. Secretary was so spirited that
the Democratic ladies withdrew from
O ur W inter —It appears from ex
changes that in the States East, North
and Southwest, this winter is one of
unusual severity. Railroad trains
have been blockaded with snow, and
the Mississippi river gorged with ice,
further south than has been known for
many years. While our friends in
Iowa have been wrestling with snow
drifts, with the temperature 29 0 below
zero, the people of Oregon have been
basking in sunshine and what would,
in the Northwest, be called Indian
summer. In Oregon the present win
ter is in strong contrast with the last,
which was unusually wet. For more
than two months it has been dry,
much of the time clear—and to us it
has appeared quite warm, though wo
have heard some old residents speak of
our frosty mornings as cold. The win
ter has been propitious for plowing and
has been generally improved. With
favorable weather for sowing in Feb
ruary and March the breadth of crops
in Oregon will be greater than ever
before; and the farmer can look for
ward to the latter spring and summer
months, as alone respite from field la
bor. From present appearances, how
ever, our dry weather is at an end.
Last night the rain began to fall, and
to-day the clouds are on the given
hand. The showers however are warm
and refreshing and speak of an abund
ant harvest.— Cultivator.
T he Department of the Interior is
in difficulty to know what disposal to
make of the product of the latiors of
Indians who have been induced to en
gage in agricultural pursuits. This
property is in the hands of several In
dian agents, one of them holding no
less than two thousand bushels of
wheat. As the question is one of
law—the Department not being sure of
its authority either to sell or to distrib
ute among the Indians—the matter
will have to be referred to the proper
quarter for legal advice. If it were one
of discretion, it would seem at once the
proper policy to allow the Indians to
reap the fruits of their own industry
and thereby encourage them in well
doing. The most pleasing feature of
the affair is the success which seems
to have attended an official experiment
of the capacity of the Indian for civi
lized pursuits. Henceforth let this
success be borne in mind when army
officers clamor for extermination.—

A N ew E xplosive .—A substitute
for gunpowder has been invented in
England, in the shape of paper im
pregnated with a chemical compound
of chlorate of potash, nitrate of potash,
prussiate of potash, and chromate of
potash, coupled with a little powdered
charcoal aud tinder. The paper is
rolled around these latter in the de
sired sizes for cartridges. The advan
tage offered are that no danger of ex
plosion exists except from actual con
tact with tire; the interior of the arm
is not soiled; less smoke and less re
bound are made than with gunpowder,
and less damage takes place from hu
midity. Very satisfactory trials have
been made of the new material.
