Record Breaking Floods In Eastern States
Waters Now Receding.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., March 5. A heavy
rain fall and a rush of water from its
upper tributaries ciiiik.i1 tho north
branch of the Susquehanna river to rlso
rapidly, tho guugo showing 31 feet 3
inches. It is thought there will bo
another rise of a few inches befcro the
water recedes.
This mark is equal to that of 1805,
which was a record breaker. Tho
water is over the banks of tho river
from Pittston to Nanticoke and resem
bles a vast lake. Nearly one-half of
tho city is under water. At West
moor, Firwood and Riverside, nearly
all resiilents have vacated their houses
Tho water has reached the first stories
and is gradually going up to tho second.
Those who lingered too long had to bo
removed in Ixiats. Tho cellars of tho
Hterling and Wyoming Valley hotels
and many mercantile houses in the cen
tral part of the city aro filled with
water. The people living on Ilivcr and
adjoining streets, which is the princi
pal rosiiienco portion ol tlio city, aro
hemmed in by water and aro unablo to
leave their homes unless by boat. All
tho streets in West Pittston aro under
foveral feet of water.
Two hundred families living in tho
lowlands in tho town of Plymouth had
to leave their houses hastily, tho water
covering tho first floors und putting
out tho tires.
Washouts aro reported all along tho
lino of tho Central Railroad of New
Jersey, and many mines aro flooded.
Nino lives have been lost so far. Tho
casualties for tho past 24 hours were
three. Tho property loss is already
estimated lit (1,000,000.
Traffic Resumed at Pittsburg.
Pittsburg, March 5. This city an
Allegheny have so far recovered from
tho flood as to have resumed all on! in
ary triifllc, and to have, in n great
measure, overcome tho inconvenience
brought about by tho high waters.
Tho only portions of either city still
under water aro tho lower parts of Penn
avenue, in Pittsburg, nnd tho Woods
Run district in Allegheny. Both of
these sections will bo out of tho water's
clutches boforo morning, as tho rivers
aro steadily falling hero and at all
above points.
Conservative men place tho total loss
hero at about (1,250,000. TIiIb in
eludes tho loss to tho thousands of
workmen in wages, ns well as tho actual
property loss. Koliablo merchants say
tlio loss in tlio Poun nvonuo district
alono, from tho Lincoln hotel to

Manila, March 6. Twenty-flvo mem

belioved they wero killed or captured.
Tho samo band of insurgents turned

molest tho escort of three men.
Governor Klores, of tho provino of
Itizal, says tho members of the band
who recently captured Ampil, tho presi
dente of Cainta, Morong province, were
neither ladrones nor insurgents. Ho
thinks n private feud was at the bottom
of tho matter. Word has been re

under torture and expecting death
Ampil was an enthusiastic American
A force of constabulary and military
are scouring the country, and bands of
insurgents and ladrones aro flocking to

officials have been notified of the arri

An extra force of constabulary will en

Speaking on the most useful borse
for the farmer before the West Vir
ginia Live Stock Breeders' Assocla
Hon. C. E. Lewis said In part: The
heavy horse has a signal advantage In
some farm operations. In plowing or
operating a manure spreader or haul
Ing the crops to the barn or to market
the heavy horse Is Just what Is want
ed, but In harrowing he does not have
an advantage proportionate to bis size.
For drawing n mowing machine the
lighter horse Is better. Hitch n heavy
horse to the shovel plow or cultivator
and start him up and down the corn
field, with scarcely room between the
three-foot rows for him to put his pon
derous feet walking on two rows at
once and breaking down more corn In
each than a little horse could In one,
nnd you will quickly decide that he
was not made for that kind of work.
Besides, to carry 1.000 pounds of sur
plus, useless horseflesh over the soft
ground of the cornfield takes a great
deal of energy, and that energy has to
be supplied by nn extra amount of
feed. Then through the long winter
months of Idleness It requires n great
deal of grain to keep the heavy horse's
huge body In repair.
Knrly Plowlnc for Corn.
Some of the best corn crops of last
season, a season of poor crops In all
corn sections, as a rule, were from soils
plowed In March or early April. Ex
perience has shown that this early
spring plowing Is to be preferred to
fall plowing, for corn. The stable
manure Is hauled to the field during the
winter as made, nnd In March, as soon
as the ground can be worked. It Is
plowed, the plowing being rather shal
low. This plowing Is done In the regu
lar manner, but nothing more Is dono
until corn-planting time, when the
ground Is further prepared for the crop.
The seeding Is done with drills nnd
the summer system of cultivation stnrt
ed with the wcedcr early nnd continued
as long as possible. The plan Is com
paratively new In some localities, but it
has brought good results, and Is well
worth trying.
Three-Horse livelier.
To make a good three-horse evener
take two pieces of hickory or red elm,
or any tough wood one Inch thick, six
Inches wide and thirty-eight Inches
long, for the main pieces, nnd a hook
with an eye large enough for the cen
ter bolt to pass through. Then get two
sticks one Inch thick, three Inches wide
and eighteen Inches long and a single
tree eighteen Inches long. A single
tree with an Iron pulley will answer for
the middle horse. A short twisted link
chain should pnss from the two ends
of ,the eveuers over tho pulley. The
Illustration shows the manner of con
struction better than can be described.

Cotton-Seed Meal ns a Fertilizer.
The plan of using cotton seed In vnrl
our forms as a fertilizer Is not n de
sirable practice. It Is generally id
niltted that we may add to the soli's
fertility by the direct npplleatlon of
several crops, the legumes, for exam
ple, but In very many cases these crops
could be made to answer a double pur
pose. This is the case with cotton seed
meat If fed to the stock In small
quantities together with rougbuge of
i r

milium iiiij iviiiii, it , in i.v
to the nnlmnls and still lose none of Its
innnurlal mine. All sorts of plans may
be tried In soil fertilization, but the fact
still remains Mint the best results aro
ilttnlned. nil things considered, when
stock Is used In connection with fnrm
lug. That ninny dairy farms do not
pay Is admitted, but, on tho other
hand, there arc few farms that aro
profitable If stock Is not kept on them.
Regular farming Is meant, not true
raising. Further, and this has been
demonstrated time and again, there Is
no farm used for general work that
would not be more profitable If more
stock was added up to the number that
could be supported from tho farm.
Holl Culture In Krult-Orowlnu.
A few years ago there were few
farmers who had any faith In the
efforts of skilled experimenters to In
duce them to conserve the moisture In
the soil by a system of shallow culti
vation during the summer. One by
one they tried the plan, many of them
In desperation during a season or
drought, until now thousands hava
proved Its great value. Fruit grower
are becoming Interested In the question
and realize that with fruits that nosorb
Immense quantities of water from tho
soil It Is absolutely necessary that ev
erything possible be done to keep In the
soli for the use of the tree during tho
summer all that Is possible of the
water that falls during the fall, winter
and spring. Nothing will accomplish
this better than the system of surface
culture during the summer. Then If
this plan Is followed by a cover crop
during the winter to be turned under
In the spring, the trees have every In
centive to thrive, provided, of course,
the soil Is properly fertilized.

Heat in Dee Culture.
While It Is possible to do many things
with artificial heat, all attempts to
hasten activity ou the part of the beess
by artificial heat have proved failures

Prominence Is given this now In view
of several Items going the round of the
press advising the packing of hives to
stable manure to furnish the artificial
heat. In experiments brood rearing
was hastened. It Is true, and more beea
hatched, but they were weak, and suc
cumbed to the weather when they left
the hives, and many of the honey gath
erers started out earlier owing to tho
artificial heat, and never returned.
The hives should, of course, be packed
with some material so that the bees
will not suffer during the winter, but
nil attempts to force them to gather
honey before settled weather will re
