Notwithstanding the generally accepted
idea that capital is cowardly we are occa
sionally surprised by exceptions to the
rule which command our admiration.
We were reminded of a notable excep
tion of this sort when, during a recent
visit to San Francisco, we had occasion
to pass the elegant new building of the
Fireman's Fund Insurance Company.
This company in 1871 had more than its
entire capital swept away by the Chicago
fire, but instead of falling outright, com
promising with its creditors or retiring
from the insurance field, as did a Iran
dred other companies (including, so far
as Eastern underwriting was concerned,
all the other Pacific Coast Companies),
it assessed its stockholders such a sum
as enabled it to pay every claimant,
dollar for dollar ; met with equal pluck
its large losses in the Boston conflagra
tion, which soon followed, and has ever
since battled against fire with such suc
cess that it stands to-day at the head of
all the Pacific Coast Companies. As a
rule the public do not exhibit much
enthusiastic friendship for corporations,
but where a corporate bravery like that
above referred td displays itself, they are
not slow to applaud it. And herein lies
the secret of the Fireman's Fund's suc-
cess. Having proven its bravery in the
hardest battle it will probably ever be
called upon to fight, and having therein
faithfully protected those who had placed
their relianoe in it, there are no fears
that it will show the white feathers in
any subsequent trial,all of which accounts
for the confidence accorded it, and for a
prosperity which houses it in a new
$300,000 building, which gives.it assets
of one and a half million dollars, a net
surplus of $270,000, and an income of
nearly one' million dollars per annum
which enables it to pay an average of two
losses per day throughout the year. From
a comparatively small company it has
grown in twenty-two years to be the
largest fire underwriting institution west
of New York State, and a credit to the
, Pacific Coast.
The history of this company shows
what may be done by an exhibition of
financial bravery. There was no luck'
about it, unless the . sweeping out of
existence of its entire capital by the
Chicago fire might have been termed
"hard luck." We think that many of
our corporate institutions who are dis
posed to beat an ignominious retreat in
the face of disaster, leaving those who
.have confided in them to shirk for
selves, could learn a lesson that would
... . ... .'
redound to their prom ana honor alike
if they would seriously consider the rec
ord made by the Firemen 8 Fund.
If they were generally to do this, if
they were as jealous of their corporate
honor as individuals are of that which
pertains to their person, the prejudice
against corporations would soon be a
relic of the past.
The Importance of IluHlvimllng: Supplies of
It is of the utmost importance that
we farmers make all the stable manure
we can; but even if half the farm be
kept in permanent pasture, and the rest
in corn, oat, wheat and three years
clover and timothy, we can not get
more than enough for one of the ftwo
crops, corn or wheat. Which crop shall
get it? If only one, then the other will
suffer, and, besides, the catch of grass
after the wheat may be poor. Suppose
we give the manure to the corn,
plowing it in shallow, or, bet
ter, dragging it into the hills, we may
get seventy bushels where we would
only get ten without the manure. Such
lias been the experience on our Western
Reserve clay soil.
But now what shall we do for the
wheat? Here the commercial manures
may help us out. Chemistry teaches
that ordinarily the soil and the air sup
ply enough 6f all the needed food of
plants, except throe constituents ni
trogen compounds, phosphate and pel
ash. Phosphates made from bones,
with other animal refuse 'added, may
contain these substances in fairly suita
ble proportions; but farmers are learn
ing that these manures can bo too easi
ly adulterated, and in their experience
they are getting better success with
raw ground bone than with superphos
phate from bono or South Carolina
We care more, however, for results
than for the chemistry of the matter,
but even in using the results we may
make mistakes. With bone adulterated
with one-sixth South Carolina rock and
one-eighth plaster, the whole ground
very line, we may get as good a crorof
wheat as with coarse raw bone, but we
may fail to see that the bone would
help succeeding crops more. On our
moist, compact clay soil3 bone-meal
gives a good crop of wheat without
any other fertilizer; one field here that
never had any manure, and would not
have yielded six bushels of corn to the
acre, gave, 1 think, twenty-seven
bushels of wheat with a dressing of
200 pounds of coarse bone-meal alone.
On open, subsoiled land bone is not
so beneficial for either wheat or corn;
but 200 pounds of superphosphate in
the hill will sometimes double the
latter crop, while in other cases it will
oul v cause a more rapid growth in the
early part of the season without any
improvement in the yield of ears; with
us this year no difference was to be
seen where a row of corn was left
without phosphate between rows fed at
the rate of 200 pounds to the acre.
But this row might have stolen all it
needed from its too near neighboring
, rows, Ed. However useful phos
phates or bone-meals may be to us, we
should not buy them without knowing
what per cent of plant food they con
tain. As we cannot always learn that,
the safest course would seem to be to
apply stable manure to corn, and to
wheat coarse ground bone which can
bo afforded pure. J. B. Smith, in tf.

A snre cure for Blind. Bleedlntr. Itchinir and Ulcer
ated Piles has been discovered by Dr. William (an In

ment. A sioglo box bas cured the worst chronio cases
of 25 or 30 years standing. No one need suffer five ann
ates alter applying tins wonderful soothing medicine.
Lotions, instruments and electuaries do more barm than
good. William's Indian Pile Ointment absorbs the tu
mors, allays the intense itching (particularly at night
after getting warm In bed), acts as a poultice, gives in
stant relief, and is prepared only for Piles, itching of
us private pairs, ami lor nouung esse.

Tle OominoupliifTf! Younjr Man, of Whom
Nothing; in Particular is Kspected.
It the commonplace young man is
nobody's ideal, neither does he disap
point anybody, for nothing in particu
lar is expected of him. But there isio
nonsense about him, or only such as "is
relished by the best of men." He
cracks his jokes as ruthlessly over the
aesthetic humbug as over , the corrupt
politician; he is au fait in lawn tenni.-j,
in croquet, in euchre, or whist, or bill
iards, in the deux temps or the country
dance, in base-ball or boating, which
make hun popular at picni , or partv,
or country house; he has "iews on all
the questions of the day, und does not
hesitate to express them without the
least diffidence, and apparently without
the least suspicion but that they are
as sound as Plato's, and flawless as the
Koh-i-noor. In fact, he has a great
deal of conversation of one kind and
another; he can give vou any number
of "inexact thoughts," as Landor calls
witticisms, either original or culled; if
you are a blue-stocking, he discourses
of books; if a scientist, he quotes Dar
win or Tvndall, gleaned from the daily
journals; if a sentimentalist, he retorts
in lines from "familiar quotations;" he
As not deeply read, or he would not be
the commonplace young man, perhaps,
but he knows a little of a great many
subjects, and has a happy faculty, as
some people have in spending money,
of making a little go a great wav; he
adapts his conversation to his company,
and gossips with those who gossip.
He has some notoriously good qualities;
he is an excellent son and brother, gen
erous with his loose change, particular
about his tailor, fastidious about his
sweethearts and his company, not
ashamed ot his poor relations nor
boastful to them, nor ashamed to be
seen on the promenade with a shabby
friend or a plain woman, lie has no
special conceit, but he knows his own
value in a. society where the feminine
- element predominates, and acts accord
ingly. If he is more or less frivolous
withal, it is possibly because the world
seems to put a premium upon frivolity,
and discounts earnestness. He is essen
tially the creature of the period, and
reflects its spirit and nervous energy
he is the normal human being, not too
good for human nature s daily mood,
with a hearty appetite and a correct
digestion, made for domestic, homely
life, for every-day wear and tear,, not
for holidays alone: and if he does' not
dazzle like "the blue and white young
man." neither does -he aggravate us
with the whims, the hobbies; and oddi
ties of genius, he does not affect Anglo
mania, nor drawl, nor bang his hair,
nor adopt eccentricities, lo be sure,
he will not write the coming novel, he
does not "breathe in numbers, nor
compose us symphonies, nor. paint ns
pictures, nor carve us statues; his
atomsmay not be those of which heroes
are made, or a'retic discoverers; he will
not weigh the stars, or calculate
eclipses, or fight microbes; yet he tills
'his niche; he is a companionable soul,
and the world could ill afford to jog on
without him. Harper's Bazar.
A pun sheathed like a cat's claw in
velvet: "So old Scrape-till is dead at
last,1' observed David from the interior
of his evening paper; Voceans of
money, too." "What did he do with
itP" queried Dora. "Oh, left it here
and there," said David. "That scape
grace son gets a quarter of a million.
If he doesn't paint the town red now
then I'm a Canadian." "I should
think," mused Dora, softly, as she
helped herself to another needleful of
silk, "I should think anybody with a
quart of. Vermillion might paint a town
very red, indeed.1' And David was so
astonished that he put his paper in the
fire and laid a fresh stick of wood in
the very center of the plush-covered
table. Rockland Courier,
