From the peculiar history of the lonely
Pacific islander, who, it seems, risked
bin life and assisted in saving the lives
of United States man-of-war s men dur
ing the terrible cyclone that swept over
the Wand in March, 1W9, it would seem
that the government alone owed a debt
of gratitude to him, to at leant put him
in a projn-r resting plaee. Letungaifo
was one of five Sauiouns brought to this
country by It. A. Cunningham Aug. 19,
1880, and was to have exhibited with
them in thin city, but owing to his
health he wan sent to the hospital, and a
few weeks after the departure of his
countrymen he died. In obtaining these
fiveSainoans Mr. Cunningham had great
difiiculty, an Mutuafa Malietoa, the king
of the inlands, will not allow any of his
subjects to leave, claiming it contrary to
their law and custom.
In the terrible cyclone in March, 1889,
when the American men-of-war Trenton
and Vandalia were wrecked in the harbor
of Pago-Pago, in the inland of Tutuila,
the natives rescued the sailors by mak'

enabling them to get to tho shore. On

Thin wan on .Saturday, and the next
day being Sunday all were releaned to

think anything would sail on that day,
Cunningham, however, learned that the
United States ship Allodia was shortly

getting tho men together who were
anxious to como on board they were

ORGANIZATION FOR IMPROVING

A meeting wan held not long ago in the
magnificent city hall by the Housewife
Union of Berlin for the purpose ol puonciy
rewarding servants of the members for
(ears of faithful service. Ice rewards
were a handsome silver pin, with the in
itials of the union and the words, "Reward
for faithful service," an engraved certifi

The Housewife union is one of the most
energetic women's organizations in Ger
many. In Berlin it influence stretche
out over every branch of household work,
and every industry pertaining thereto. It
was founded by irau Una .viorgensiern.
The idea of encouraging faithful domestic
service bv a ouhhc reward is alsoan eman
ation from her brain. In the first year of
it existence the committee on prizes had
hard work to make both ends meet. But
nuhlic interest in the experiment grew
each vear. and now. thanks to gifts and
euacies. thin branch of the union is bcii
supporting and almost out oi uebt.
To be entitled to a prize, a woman musi
serve at least live years in the same house
hold, after which time she receives the pin
and the certificate. She receives after ten
year in the name family the cooklwok
and ten marks In gold: after twenty years
the rn-ts twenty marks, and after thirty
year in the same household thirty marks

tain prize every five years if she wishes.
the only necessary condition being that
ber employer, if not a inemtHjr or tue
union, must pay two years' membership
fee and a small sum toward the prize.
The council hall used for the annual
meetinit was filled to overflowing with an
interested crowd of women, a man here

ciative of the importance or the occasion.
The meeting was opened by the president
of the union, Frau Morgenstern, a short,
stout woman, with white bairand a bright,
kindly face. After a brief resume of the
minutes of the last meeting the president
spoke of the purpose of prize giving, the
hope of improving the class of domestic
servants by encouraging long and faithful
attention to duty and the attempt to re
store something of tlie patriarchal relations
of servaut and employer in former days,
when the servant was one of tlie family,
taking a personal pride and interest in the
welfare of tlie household.
She then swke to the servants, empha
sizing the good their example must do to
many of their class, and contrasting the
security of their position with the lot of
the factory hand and the shopgirl. . The
employer came in for a little of the praise
a well, Frau Morgenstern rightly giving
the housewife her due share of importance
lu making and the keeping of good serv
ants. Then the list of those to be reward
ed was read, and the women came forward
one by one to receive tlie prizes.
The first name announced was Unit of a
working housekeeper, who had served fifty
yearn in the same place, outliving two gen
erations, and now In her old age cared for
a one of the family. The announcement
evoked a storm of applause, and the audi
ence was much disappointed when told
that this faithful creature was too old to
make the journey from her distant coun
try home, and that her prize had been for
warded to her.
Next on the list came another 'house
keeper, whose term of service had lasted
88 years; then a cook of 30 years' service In
the same household, another of 28, and an
other of -IS. All lived in country towns,
not far distant, aud from one who was tin
able to be present n letter of thanks was
read aloud. Then came nix women, all of
whom had served 'St years in families in
Berlin; then uu who -had served for IM
years, another for 23, another for 22, sev
era! for 20, four from 1" to 20 years, and
seven whose term of service lasted from 5
to 15 years.' Twenty-eight ill all were re
warded, the majority having served for
more than 20 years in the same family.
Several had received prizes five years be
fore, and several were from families where
fellow servants had been rewarded within
the lust few years.
At the previous meeting forty-five
women were rewarded, and tue-onmber
of prizes giveu lms seldom been below

Ar.ro.iteH nnnn certain of tlie most in
telligent wheat fanners the fact that a
Wu. finonrittr nf Reed 80WB Upon B
properlv prepared seed bed will give
better returns than a much larger quan
tity of seed sown upon land not scieutif
ica'llv fitted for its reception. In a word,
most American wheat growers plant too
much seed, and do not properly prepare
the ground. A very common practice
throughout a large part of the cereal
areas of the United States is to eow a
bushel and a half of seed per acre. In
at least 90 per cent of cases this is en
tirely too much, in some large sections
five pecks is the standard amount for
sowing an acre of land. This also is too
great a quantity if the conditions lead
ing to the best "success in wheat-growing
are nearly fulfilled. Careful and pro
loneed experiment has shown that under
easily secured conditions wheat plants
will stool into ten or twelve culms, each
of which will carry twenty to sixty
grains. This would indicate a yield sev
eral tines as great as that ordinarily ob
tained nd even greater than that ever
reached on a large scale. From this we
must infer that a great part of the seed
usually planted does not germinate at
all, or fails to mature a grain-bearing
plant. ith a possible yield ol several
hundred fold, it is scarcely credituble to
American farmers that they go along
war after year contentedly reaping a
tenfold pr twelvefold crop of 75-cent
wheal, ill Buiuc ctiliuliS oi &C Xorth-
west certain advanced wheat growers
have reduced the amount of sed sown,
and have been surprised at tie result.
In fact, ithas been shown thaton prop
erly prepared ground a half bushel of
the best sted wheat brings a btter aver
age yield ban two or three times as
much eeedsown in the ordinar manner.
The write once knew a pogreseive
farmer iii Michigan who mad experi
ments andjrofited by them. From the
usual six pk8 of seed wheat per acre
he graduall; cut dow n the atmiut each
year, notiiif carefully the etfets of li is
slight reduction. He' found tht by put
ting his grooid in condition receive
and bring forth a large proporton of the

bring a larger harvest than duble the J
quantity sown. j
