Mr. Mary Sullivan, a dissipated and de

found dead about 1 o'clock Thursday after
noon in a room over tho Beehive saloon on
Fifth street, near Oak. Sho is tho woman
who w as sent to the pesthouso sometime since,
and it being ascertained tint she was not suf

Wednesday evening word was brought to
Chief Lsppeus that sho was sick at the p'a'cb

Sho complained that she could not stand and
had lost the use of her legs. Yesterday about
noon Chief Lappeus saw Mr. Sullivan ami in
formed him of where his wife was and that
she w anted to see him. Ho w ent to tho place,
and on opening the door, the dead bodvof the
woman was found in a sitting position "against
the wall. Thero wero several severe buiiscs
and two or three sHht cuts on tho body and
blood on tho bci clot ling and floor. As she
had been thinking io excess for several days
it is probablo that she was sulk-ring from de
lirium, and in her paioxysms, hid fallen and
bruised herself, and the cuts wero inflicted by
some tin vessels w liich w ere on the floor. The
scene in the miserable room, which was desti
tute of furniture, except a wretched bed,
beggars description. Tho place is ono of the
sliest dens in tho city, haunted bv tho lowest
and most depraved of both sexes, and of all
colors. It is a sad commentary on our civil
ization to think that a man can obtain a
license to run such a hell-holo, or that it is
tolerated in a vicinity inhabited by respect
able citizens.

Sheep In Orchards.
Practical Farmer! We have frequently
recommended sheep in orchards for the
destruction of tho codling worm, as well as to
keep them closely grazed by feeding on the
gras and to enrich the ground with their
droppings, and tho subject is of sufficient im
portance to bear many repetitions. Wo find
in an exchange an account of the successful
treatment of an orchard, without giving the
name of the owner, but from tho statement it
is cwdently that of J. S. Woodward, of Lock
port. The following is briefly the substance
of the statement : Tho orchard occupies 32
acres, and is mado the run of 30 hogs and 150
or 200 sheep and lambs during Summer.
Enough grain and brau is given them to place
them in good condition. They eat every blade
of gras3 and green thing close down, and every
fallen apple as coon as dropped, for which
purposo sheep are better than hogs, which
sleep so soundly as not to hear an apple fall,
but sheep aro always on hand and devour
every ono as soon as it touches tho ground.
The fruit each year grows fail er, and fewer
wormy specimens, and the manttro from feed
ing so much grain has given a healthy grow th
of the trees. To prevent tho animals gnaw
ing the bark the trunks aro washed once a
month with a mixture of soap-suds, whalo oil
aud sheep manure. If tho animals aro given
a constant supply of fresh water they have
less disposition to cat the bark. Tho profits
of this system consist in placing the sheep in
tho best condition, in fiuely glowing lambs
and in hcaiy crops of fiuit for market.

Autumn-Planted Potatoes.
Last October I asked some questions about
planting potatoes, which wero kindly an
swered in the Jomtwl, and I w as requested
to send tho results of tho expciimeuts that
I was then about to try. The potatoes wero
planted the first week in October about six
inches deep, they were well covered with
dry, decayed manure, and the holes were
then filled with soil. Tho tubers were not
cnt, aud tho variety was E rly Rose. In
due titno the shoots appeared, and were
much injured by the late frosts; tho foliage
never looked healthy after, and thero were
ten per cent, blanks in the rows. The pota
toes w ero ready to lift the second week in
July, but the crop was not heavy, many of
the tubers being very small, most of the
large tubers very ill-shaped, and when cooked
they were closo in substance, which I attrib
uted to deep planting. So much for Autumn
planted potatoes. By way of test, at the
end of March I planted one row of the same
variety close to the others. The frost did
not aflect them, as they were not so forward,
and it was surprising how they grew and
took tho lead. There was not a blank in the
row, and they were ready to lift the first
week in July, the crop being heavier, the
tubers larger, with fewer small ones amongst
them than was the case with the Autumn
slant." atoc.j J K --llshaped, and

In ortler to raiso roses in perfection, it is
needful to feetl them well and place them in
the full sunlight, and not where they will be
shaded by trees or shrul s; and after they have
bloomed prune them closely, also when they
commence to leaf out in tho early Spring.
Tlio beds in which they are planted must bo
made very rich with well decomposed compo
site, tiny in to the depth of at least two feet.
In making a rose-bed, fill it in with good
ordure well rolled; then add si inches or a
foot of very rich soil withja mixturo of sand.
After the plants are set out, mulch them with
tobacco stems, which will I)t-lp keep them
from tho aphis, or with long litter from the
stable. This will keep their roots moist and
cool duriug the heated term, and make
healthy growth of branches and Howers.
After the June (lowering has passed, ill
monthly loses should be severely pruned and
the new grow th cut back two or nioro inches;
also, tho old branches should be cut away.
The handsomest flowers alnays spring from
fresh growth from tho roots, and to make
these start vigorously the knifo should bo
vigorously used. For a few w eeks your pets
may Beem shorn of their glory, but soon they
will rene.v their beauty and give you plenty
of flowers, while if you permit the seed-buds
to form it will stop the blossoming in a great
degree. As each rose fades away, therefore,
cut it off; or, better jet, cut it while iu its
loveliness, and if you have plenty iu the
house, send it to some one whs docs not pos
sess such floral liehes. Fiom the branches
which aio pruned away new plants can be
raised, which will also delight your friends if
jou will give them away, A true flower loer
is always generous with flowers, aud takes as
much pleasure in giving them to others as in
raising them. As a general rule, all cuttings
should be cut off just below a bud or joint.
and they should be from ouug grow th rather
than from the old, where the bark has become
hardened. Try to snap tho branch. If it
bends without breaking, it is too old to grow-
easily, but if it snaps off at once it is iu the
ruht condition to take root quickly.
Lease one or two buds aboxe the bottom
one, and trim off ono or more of the lower
leans, as they wilt easily, and thus iujurethe
cutting. Clear sand kept very moist is the
best soil iu which to strike cuttings, aud they
ean be placed iu a pot only an inch apart, and
put iu the shade for a few days. Warmth, an
even teuipcratuio and moisture are essential
for root grow th. It will take from three to
four weeks to develop the r-ots, and then the
plants can lw placed iu a rich soil with i little
sand to lightuu it. and soii they will be good
stocky plants. .ny i,yrAryAr.
