Secretary Carlisle is having prepared
a list of the employes of the Treasury
J Department, with the salaries thev re

1 States. The list has been prepared al
ready to such an extent as to show a
' great disproportion among the States,
some having many more clerks than their
! pro,-"r quota and others less. The Sec-
retary, it is understood, intends hv every
means in bis Kjwer to reduce the Dis

sions in allowing an attorney fee of $ 10.
The claim for increase was made under
the act 0 June 27, 1890, and the Assist
ant Secretary holds that all such claims
should bo treated as strictly increase
claims whether new disabilities are
claimed or not, for which a fee of only

well-known Senator, who is tho cham
pion of general humanitarian legisla

treaty will lie found neither more nor

ten olllcials connected with the commis
sion who are receiving more than double
pay by drawing $0 to ft per day in ad
dition to regular salaries, which range
from $1, 5(H) to f.'!,5(H) per annum. Ru
mors of these exposures have made
quite a stir in the department, and some
interesting developments are expected.
Assistant Secretary Spaulding has
written the following letter to Collectors
on the Pacitlc Coast: "The department
is informed that the practice obtains
among Cliiuese lalxirers in this country
of entrusting money to merchants, which
is treated as a part'of the capital in the
business. Chinese laborers who have
made such a disposition of their savings,
although not actually engaged in busi
ness, have claimed to lie merchants, and
say tin y are thereby entitled to leave the
country and return'at pleasure. The de
partment desires you to closely scrutin
ize the certillcates which may ls pre
sented at your port by returning Chinese
and to require evidence of the standing
of the holders as bomi-lldo merchants,
actively engaged in business. In no case
should Chinese be permitted to enter as
merchants unless their right to the priv
ilege is clearly established, and where it
appears the practice herein referred to is
attempted the certillcates presented
should bo ignored, the holders arrested
and the facts reported to the depart
ment." The imestion of sheathing our naval
vessels isime to which Secretary Herbert,
it is said, proKsos to give s.mie earnest
consideration. Naval Constructor Hicli
born has prepared some important data
on the subject. Ho shows that the At
lanta on her trial trip with a clean bot
tom attained a speed of 15.S knots
an hour with a S,3lii-horse power,
w hile the lloston, her exact duplicate,
with a comparatively foul bottom made
but 13.8 knot on' S.IilHl-horse tHiwer
Constructor Hichlmrn holds that the im
portance of the preservation of the bot
tom of steel vessels from corrosion and
fouling can hardly be overestimated and
is continually emphasized by the reports
of loss of sxVd and increased coal con
sumption received from our new un
sheathed steel vessels now in commis
sion. I'nless our cruisers are to be con-
lined to cruises of short duration in the
neighborhood of our own porta, it would
apH'ar that they are deficient in the
most itnortaut quality the ability to
maintain high speed at sea (or long pe
riods. The additional exM'iisc incurred
in putting on the sheathing of wood and
copHr is in reality a great saving dur
ing the lifetime of a ship, as it obviates
the necessity of frequent docking and
tho largely increased coal bills when the
the metal lottom is foul. For a vessel

FOR STARTING EARLY PLANTS
A Good Deal of Care and Experi
ence Required to Regulate
a Hotbed Notes.
If one does not have a propagating
house, he need not on that account go
without early plants, for a box in the
house or an easily constructed hotbed
will answer the purpose very satisfacto
rily. Indeed many truck gardeners who
raise a considerable variety of early veg
etables never have anything more costly
than the simplest kind of hotbeds. The
early starting of plants in this way pre
supposes that it was thought of and pro
vided for before winter set in. It would
not be easy in most cases to obtain the
proper kind of soil or compost at this
season of the f year, and if no prepara
tion has been made, the plant must be
laid a?ide, unless some one else more
provident can supply the necessary soil.
A good, light, sandy loam the richer
ami lighter the better makes a good
enough soi1 Before using it should be
run throngi. 1 sieve, so as to remove all
stones, lumps and rubbish. A table
spoonful of superphosphate to each half
bushel of soil may be added to advant
age, and five or six quarts of peat moss
or sphagnum, such as nursery men use
for packing, thoroughly dried and sifted,
to thA half bushel of soil make an excel
lent material for starting seeds. If it is
thought too much labor to make hotbeds,
boxes about thirty inche9 long, twelve
inches wide and three inches deep, made
of half-inch stuff, may be used in the
house. These may be placed on a flower
stand or on the window sill, where they
should be so secure that they will not be
knocked off. Where a large number of
plants is not required, these boxes are
all that are necessary, and they are a
source of pleasure and instruction as
well as of mere utility, especially if there
are children in the family old enough to
observe and assist. A hotbed should, if
possible, be placed on the south side of
fence or building, where it will be pro
tected from the severe winds and at the
same time receive the full benefit of the
sun's rays. There are two ways of mak
ing it. One is to place fermei ting ma
nure on the surface of the ground, tak
ing care to build it up in an even, solid
mass, with the long and short manure
equally distributed, until it is from two
feet to thirty inches high. It should be
about two feet longer and wider than the
frame of the hotbed, as the center will
be hotter than the outside of the mass.
Another method is to dig a pit two feet
longer and wider than the frame, fill it
with the manure and tread it down
evenly and solidlv. A convenient size
for the sash is 3x6 feet. The frames
should be made of two-inch plank, the
back twelve and the front eight inches
wide, which allows sufficient slope to
carry off water from the sash. The sides
should, of course, be planed down to fit
the two ends, and the back and front
pieces beveled off, so that the sash will
tit closely at the ends and sides. A sin
gle brace across the middle of the frame,
the short way, is enough to make it firm
if two-inch lumber is used. The soil
may be put into the frame as soon as it
is in place. Six or eight inches of soil is
better than a shallower bed, as when
once heated through it will retain the
heat longer, and the plants will be less
likely to burn than if in closer contact
with the hot manure. Seeds should not
be sown for at least a week after the beds
begin to heat. Meantime the weeds and
grass will sprout, and mav be re
moved before the seed is put in. A good
deal of care and experience is required
to regulate a hotbed. It must be guarded
against both heat and cold and nvprlifiat.

or mats at night, the latter bv proper
ventilation when the sun shines brightly.
