The foregoing is only a dream though
to bo sure, a dream that lias an infini
tesimal clianco of fulfilment. There is
a definite probability, however, that (ho
Kusaiaii-Japanese struggle may prove
the indirect cause of war in quite anoth
er quarter. For Eomo time trouble has
been brewing between Turkey and Bul
garia, principally over Macedonian af
fairs, and there is much likelihood that
the two nations will seize the opportuni
ty offered by Russia's preoccupation in
the Far East to settle their differences
Dispatches from Constantinople indi
cate that n strong war feeling exists in
Turkish Government circles. It is com
monly asserted by the" Turks that the
Bulgarians have made a practice of giv
ing assistance to revolutionary commit
ters. The Bulgarians, it is charged,
have protected the revolutionists, have
supplied them with arms, and have per
mitted armed forces to march through
their territory. Turkey considers that
Russia's predicament offers her a chance
to inflict a salutary lesson upon Bul
garia. Eho is beginning to concentrate
troops upon the Bulgarian frontier, and
has promulgated orders tor general ar
tillery and infantry target practice.
Another sign indicating dangerously
teuM! relations between the two nations
is the fact that the Turkish Commis
sioner at Sofia refuses to vice the pass
ports of Bulgarians.
It is extremely probable, that, in view
of the present critical situation, Turkey
will not attempt to carry out the prom
ised reforms in Macedonia The Porto
considers that, with a Bulgarian war
impending, it cannot at present take up
on itself the extensive responsibilities
involved in the reform scheme.
The announcement has been made
that the much-advertised Macedonian
revolution will break out in the spring
It is entirely possible that this upri8
ing, in case it takes place, will be the
signal for the breaking ont of hostilities
between Turkev and Bulgaria.

Having helped to grow hops, about as
profitable a crop as anything on the
farm, the ground should be plowed the

it is dry enough to harrowin the spring;
and it should be harrowed thoroughly,
and all large stones and rnbbish that
may appear at the surface removed

carefully mark the ground out one way,

bf these pieces are sufficient to set in
any hill. They should be planted by
hand, as follows : First, scatter an inch
of earth over the fertilizer placed in
the hole. This will prevent the roots
from coming into immediate contact
with the fertilizer, whkh at first might
have a tendency to injure them. The
roots should be inserted separately from
each other, and always with the eyes up
that is, if a speedy appearance of the
sprouts above ground is insured. Then
earth free from stones shou'd be gently
packed around them, and next over
them to the depth of an inch or more,
and in order to know afterward just
where the hills are before the young
hops have come up, a small stick, pre
pared expressly for the purpose, should
be stuck into the ground at each hill.
Let it extend 12 or J15 inches above
ground, for the young hops will thon
have a chanre to cling to something and
to get initiated, as it were, into the
habits of their futnre life. Continue
thus until the whole yard is set.
I have helped to set out hops in var
ious ways, but tins method J. preier to
all others, and most hop growers of re

By it the roots come up better, the
sprouts appear earlier, and the hills sit

by the frost in winter. X
