THE WIND OF THE DEAD MEN'S FEET.
Oh, "wind of Hi dead iimm fret," blow softly
Disturb nut thou llielr rest.
Why should ye waken litem frum quiet timber
Within earth's toll worn breast?
Hie day will coma when, like a mighty ocean
Which rolls from pole to p
Resistless thou wilt sweep the nations over.
And then must every soul
Prepare tc meet the One, who, following after,
Appearctb in the eal.
And wakcnetb all men from death's dreamless
The greatest and the least.
lo, "wind of the dead men's feet," blow softly.
Until shall dawn that day
When, strong and terrible, thou wilt give
That all things pass away.

THE MIDWINTER EXPOSITION.
' The Unit month of the California

closed in n bize of glory, and with a
record of nearly half a million visitor

ingle exception of the Rnssian display,
which is not yet mite complete, the ex

challenges the criticism of Its patrons.
An interesting fact has thus far been
developed in connection with the patron
age that hits been given the exposition.
ibe proportion of railway coupon ad
missions is much larger than hail gener

particularly on Washington's birthday,
when 35,000 people panged the turnstiles,
that nearly one-eighth of this number
came to Bun Francisco by mil, and
panged in on the admission coupons
which they had purchased at the rail
way ticket office. It had been thought
that the great bulk of outside putronugo
would come later In the season, and if a
proportionate increase ia developed here,
a wag the case in Chicago, the later

Beklix. In the Reichstag debate on
the KuHi-o-Gennan commercial treaty
was opened. Von Mirbach on behalf of
the Conservatives gave an explanation
of the reasons w hich had decided the
party not to suptxirt the government,
contending the treaty would prove an
injury to German husbandry greater
than the advantages which could possi
bly follow its passage. Von liibiestein
declared German manufacturers and
merchants secured under the treaty an
estimable boon. Husbandry profited
nothing by the present customs tariff,
and agrarians should direct their efforts
toward influencing federal governments
in favor of practical solicitude for Ger
man husbandry. The government could
not surrender at discretion to the de
mands of the agrarians. Count von
Moltke opposed the treaty in the name
of the Iiiiiteriulists. Kickart urged the
adoption of the treaty, saying the .en

ADVANTAGES TO BE OBTAINED
BY UNDER DRAINING.
The First Thing; to Look After In Ditching-Killing
Fruit Pest About the
Time t Dltch-The Object of Fnder
draining Farm Notes.
Underdraining may be mentioned as
one of the most beneficial improvements
on a farm. Low, level and heavy lands,
or land that is cut up with swamps and
marshes, also rolling land with streaks
or hollows between the ridges, should
be nnderdrained. Money expended in
ditching such lands (if the work be prop
erly done) will be tpeedily repaid with
interest. In ditching the first thing to
look alter is a good outlet, for no matter
how wed the rest of the work be done,
if there is not a good outlet, it is all a
failure. When buying tile one should
first consider bow many branches on his
farm will enter into the main diUh and
then buy tile large enough to carry all
the water as fast as it gets to it. When
planning fur underdraining a farm ar
range the main ditch so as to take in the
lowest hollows and where the lay of the
land will take the longest string of tile.
Try and have the main ditch about three
feet deep in the shallowest places; this
will give a good fall to the branches.
The object in underdraining is to loosen
heavy, loggy soil and to remove surface
water as soon as possible. To do this
care should be taken to get the ditch
about the right depth. For branch
drains 1 think from two to three feet is
the proper depth. In any ditch the fall
should lie evenly distributed throughout
its entire length; it should not have
more fall than necessary part of the way
and the rest be on a level, neither should
part of the tile be full of water and the
rest empty. In case of quicksand in the
bottom boards should be placed under
the tiles to prevent their settling, for, if
the tiles are not kept even, a large per
centage of their capacity will be lost. In
making turns never turn square, but al-
wa) un a circle luige enougli mat you
can use common tile for making the
turn; for large tile use a larger circle
than for small. Never have a branch
form a right angle with the main ditch,
but let it curve or angle toward the out
let. In running a ditch to a low sag 1
think it does better work to go through
the sag and end in the opKsite hank.
Now alxiut the timo to ditch, I w ill give
my way. I put in the main ditch when
ever 1 can best spare tune and w hen it
digs easiest. Alter this is done I choose
a field of sod nearest the outlet of the
main ditch, from which I am going to
take a succession of crops, and drain the
field in the fall, ditching it so that the
low and high ground w ill be ready to
work at the same time in the spring." By
doing it in the fall the freezing and thaw
ing of winter nud spring loosens the soil
and opens the poies through the ground ;
consequently the ditch is in better work
ing older unit the ground in bettor shape
for use in the spring than if I waited
until spring before ditching. Of the
many advantages obtained by under
draining I will inetition but u few: 1.
What is more unsightly than what might
bo a nice field or farm, that is all cut up
with water holes? Underdraining re
moves these. 2. While working around
a pond of water one is doing more labor
than ho would be if it were so that he
could woik through it; besides he is los

It is very important to those having

the pests which are sure to be with us

the trunk and large limbs. It is but a
few minutes' work to destroy these eggs
on a tree by simply drawing' the buck of
n knife or something similar over the
egg clusters and crushing them. As each
cluster represents from twenty to fortv
future worms, in this case surely a stitch
in time saves nine. If your trees are

Karmond,h passed away.-Chicago Tribune. ,
Vte had the pleasure of knowing both .
Greeley and Raymond. We were more ;
intimate with the first named of these
contemporary editors than with the
other. They were able, sincere, ener- i
getic, public spirited Americans. Neither
f them was a cherub. Mr. Greeley,
good man! said "damn" more than once
as we regret to remember, and when be
called Raymond "the little villain" that
cool headed man retorted in language j
which many people have forgotten. The
two did not get along very well together
when one was editor of The Tribune and
the other among his assistants, nor after-:
ward when they were editors of rival .
papers, though both were of the same
party. -Neither of them was an "ideal
editor," or a very deep thinker, or a first
class statesman or a notable scholar.
Greeley was a stronger and more
stirring writer than Raymond, but Ray
mond was a far more skillful editor than
Greelev. Greeley was more fervent in
mind than Raymond; Raymond was
more judicious and nimble than Greeley.
Raymond, when he was a member of the
legislature, and the speaker of the as
sembly, and the lieutenant governor of
the state, and a member of congress, and
a delegate to state or national conven
tions, gave evidence that he was greatly
more ingenious in politics than Greeley,
who, indeed, during the brief period of
his service in congress, did not win dis
tinction. Raymond always kept up a
close intimaoy with those astute political
managers. Tliurlow Weed and William
U. Seward, while Greeley was enable to
stay long in the "political firm of Sew
ard, Weed & Greeley," in which, as he
said when he left the concern, he had
been a junior partner."'
Greeley was more of a philosopher than
Raymond, who, in turn, was more of a
man of affairs than Greeley. Greeley
was often compared with Benjamin
Franklin, though he did not possess
Franklin's scientific quality; Raymond
might be compared, in many respects,
with Franklin Pierce, though he was not
of Pierce's politics. Greeley had certain
eccentricities of manner and action;
Ray mond was always regarded as a very
level headed man. Both of them be
longed to the antislavery school in poli
tic; but Greeley's fervor in the cause
fur surpassed Raymond's. Greeley had
iu his earlier years been a champion of
"sociul reforms" which were bitterly
denounced by Raymond, who, however,
iu the latter years of his life, began to
look with favor upon certuin theories of
socialism. Greeley was negligent in his
dress; Raymond was natty. Both Gree
ley and Ruymond were founders of New
York daily papers which still exist, but
neither of which is now characterized by
the traits of its founder.
We agree with The Kansas Commoner
that none of the New York papers now
possesses the individuality of Greeley's
Tribune or Raymond's Times, and no
one of them can possess it, for both of
these memorable individuals long ago
departed for "the undiscovered country
from whose bourn no traveler returns"
after it had been their lot "to grunt and
sweat ,nnder a weary life," but that is
not a reuson why we should despair ol

A ROYAL LOVE STORY..
VERIFICATION OF THE SAYING THA?
LOVE LEVELS ALL RANKS. V
Extract. From tlie Diary of Prlncei. Eliia
both or C-ivaria Describing the Coarse ot
Her Affection Fur the Handsome but
Humble Lieutenant Seefrled.
Probably no event of recent times has
done to much to revive the ancient tradi
tion that "love levels all ranks," and tocoo
vince a cynical world of the power of tras
affection to surmount the barriers of pride,
precedent and prejudice that divide royally
from the people, as the union of Princes.
Elizabeth of Bavaria with Baron Seefried
von Buttenheim, a humble lieutenant In
the Bavarian footguards.
Princess Elizabeth is the granddaughter
of the emperor of Austria, and as isthe case
with most princesses a royal marriaae was
planned for her. Accordingly she was no
tified in due season that an alliance had
been arranged for her with the Archduke
Francis Ferdinand, heir presumptive to the
Austrian throne. But the young princess
demurred. She had met at a court ball in
Munich six years ago Lieutenant von See-fricd-Buttenheim,
the handsomest man and
one of the poorest men in the German army,
for whom she conceived a sudden and ar
dent affection. Indeed the veracious court
gossipers declare that it was a case of "love
at first sight."
Of course F.lizabeth, being remarkably
unworldly for a princess, desired to marry
her "squire of low de
gree," and of course the
match was violently op
posed by her royal rela
tives. The faithful priu
cess fiually appealed to
the emperor, and
the doting grandfa
ther interfered in
her favor, with the
result that the lov
iniicounle were mar
ried at Genoa and are now on their honey
moon. That is one story.
Now we receive from Vienna sundry sin
ister rumors to the effect that the wedding
was not regularly celebrated, as aforesaid,
but that the couple eloped mid thus forced
the reluctant recognition of the royal fum
ily. At any rate it is certain that, however it
was accomplished, the princess is in posses
sion of her handsome lieutenant, and a sym
pathetic world will unite in the sincere wish
that he may make her happy.
It is believed that Emperor Francis Jo
seph will give a large Tyrolean estate to
Baron Seefried and raise him to the dignity
of count after he has left the German army
and joined that of Austria. The linron is
the son of Huron Ludwig von Seefried-Biit-tenheim,
chamberlain to the Bavarian
court. The family is ancient and honor
able, but is now very poor. Seefried is 34
years old, and Princess Elizabeth is 20.
A Berlin newspaperwhicb claims to have
private sources of information published
the other day some "leaves from the diary
of Princess Elizabeth of Bavaria," vhi9b"""
shed some light on the unsophisticated
character of that young woman. Her con
fessions possess the peculiar frankness
which characterized the diary of Varie
Bushkirtsi ff. Here are some passic s 1 hut
