"A wtmderful act, isn't it?" remarked
-a gentleman in the audience at the mu
seum, as the " iron-jawed " man raised
the barrel of water high in the air with
'. his teeth. "How does it strike you,
" Uncle Jerry " was a tall, gaunt man,
whose sunburnt face, slouch hat, and ill
fitting clothes gave him a decidedly pro
vincial air. ' Waal, it's purty good."
; said he, reflectively, as he scratched his
chin, " but it looks ter me like a trick
-somethin' he hez practiced fer a long
time. Git him away vfrum his bar'l
an' I reckon he ain't so stout.
But talkin' about weight-lifters, I
know a feller in this State as
is a weight-lifter, an' a weight-carrier,
"too, uv which latter, I will remark, thar
Ain't many. I knowed him when I used
ter buy hogs down in Illinoy, nigh onter
ten years ago. He lived in Princeville,
a little town in Peoria county, which
wuz allays jist as big as it is now, an'
-allays will be. Moats wuz this feller's
name George Moats. He was about
fifty-five years old when I knowed him
past his prime, but a hustler yet. He
wuz built like the statutes ye see in the
drug store winders uv ole Atlas a-holdin'
up ,the world, an' wuz the only man I
ever see that hed no armpits. They wuz
rounded out with muscle, an' made him
carry his arms bowed out like a dood.
He weighed about 250 pounds, and I
reckon wuz one uv of the slouchiest men
on airth .at thet time: All the cloes he
wore wuz a pair uv overhauls an' a cot
ton shirt, an' he gen'ally had aboard a
considerable dose uv liker; but George
wuz one uv the best-natured men in the
world, an', as he used to say, no man
knowed his strength.
"The best thing that I ever see George
do wuz carrying 200 poun's a mile with
out layin' it down er restin' on the way.
Now, you fellers look as ef thet wasn't
much uv a trick, bu let me tell yer it's a
big thing. Any uv yer kin lift 200
poun't an' mebey carry it acrost this
room, but whar will yer fine a man thet's
got the nerve ter pack it a mile without
"It happened this way : I hed ben a
tayin' aroun' Princeville some time a
buyin' up shoats for winter fatnin', an'
one arternoon wus a-settin' on the hotel
porch with a lot uv other fellers, George
amongst the rest. George Vuz full of
liker, as usual. He wus mashed down
inter a chair, half asleep, his head on
his breast, an' his big, bare feet turned
up ter the sun aginst a post. A little
.sport uv a feller, named Charlie Fast,
wuz a-readin' in a Chicago newspaper
how a feller here hed tried ter carry 200
poun's uv shot a mile in the expersition,
an' hed fell down on it. George grunted
like a fat hog, an', scz he, 'That feller
mus' be a chump; my ole woman can do
" Til bet ten dollars you can't do
it,' sez Charlie, a-winkin' at the boys.
"This kinder riled George, an' sez he:
4Ye wouldn't say that, Charlie, if ye
knowed I hed ten dollars.'
" Jist then Fred Beach come outen the
.saloon, an sez he: Til take the bef, if
George sez he kin do it.'
"An' then ole Jim Rice, the landlord
uv the house, sez ' Til take $3 of the
same, fur I know George kin pack any
thing he kin lift.' So Charlie tub 'em
both an' the money wuz . put up in my
han's. George wuz ter git half the bet
if he done it, an' Cliarlie wuz ter pick
the mile ter be traveled and the weight.
"We went acrost the road ter the
-drug store an' got two 100-pound kegs
uv white lead. Each one wuz put into
a grain sack, the two tied together and
.slung acrost George's neck. The whole
thing weighed 200 poun's and wuz put
on him the wust way possible.
"It wuz a blazin' hot day an' the
black Illinoy mud wuz six inches deep.
Charlie hed picked out the south road
from town, 'cause it wuz up-hill an'
down. As the roacb wuz purty slippy,
an' George wuz purty drunk, it wuz de
cided thet he shud hev a minute ter git
up in case he fell down. So, arter con
sidable wranglin' about one thing an' an
other, which wuz a pint made by Charlie
ter tucker George out afore the walk be
gun, the hull town started down the
road, George a-leadin'. The knot on
the back uv his neck kep' a-botherin'
him a good deal, so he kep' a-shif tin' the
kegs, sometimes on his back, sometimes
on his breast, an' agin carryin' one on
each arm, an' all the time a-staggerin'
under his whisky, an' a-slippin' an slidin'
aroun' in the mud, like he wud fall every
"The mile ended with the fust cross
roads, and the last stretch uv it wuz up
-a steep hill. George kep' up all right
till he started up this hill, when the kegs,
the mud 'an' the liker got the best uv him
and down he went. He hed got the idee
in Ms head thet he musn't put his han's
-on the groun' ef he fell, cr he wud lose
the bet. So, instid uv breakin' the fall
with his han's, he throwed 'em aroun' on
his back, an' the 200 poun's aroun' his
neck shot him inter the mud like he'd
ben throwed off en a house. He spattered
mud on the hull party when he lit, an'
thar he lay, his head half buried in the
mud, an' one blear eye a-blinkin' up at
ni3 like a dyin' coal in the ashes. Charlie
Fast got out his watch, an' purty soon he
sed: 'Half a minit, George.' But
George sed nothin' an' we thot he wuz
-dun up. Jist then ole Vaughn Williams
jmlled out his wallet, kind-a-solemn like,
unwrapped the shoestring from it, wet
his finger, an' sed: 'Genelmen, I'll bet
.$30 he gits up with it on time."
"The boys all yelled an' looked et
George, an' Charlie sez: ''You've got
jist ten secuns more.' And then George
spit the mud outen his mouth, an' sez he:
'If ye think fifty dollar's worth thet I kin
git up' with this here, Vaughn,
I'm a-goin' ter git up t An' he
did. He rose right up often
his stumak without movin' his
han's, an' them two kegs a-danglin' over
his face like two big ear-drops, an' while
the boys wuz a-yellin' he walked up ter
the top uv the hill an' throwed them kegs
over a stake-en'-rider fence 'leven-rail
high. We hed ter let the fence down ter
git the kegs back inter the road, an' thar
wuzn't a man in the crowd as cud lift
both uv 'em, an' put 'em in the wagon
we hed fetched along ter haul 'em back.
Fred Beach laffed, an' sed he reckoned
as how he wuz a jedge uv manflesh as
well as hoss-flesh. An Charlie Fast he
sed he'd seen luck like his'n run on for a
year et a time, an' then turn 'roun' an'
git wuss; but he sed he never lost $15
easier, an George hed earnt his half uv
it, sure. But ole Vaughn Williams he
chuckled kind-a low like, an' sed he
acted like George wuz a pow'rful man,
but he knowd thet George's son Os cud
carry the ole man an' his load. C htcago
Curing a Catarrh.
Cold is a tonic that invigorates the re
spiratory organs when all other stimulants
fail, and, combined with arm-exercise
and certain dietetic alternatives, fresh,
cold air is the best remedy for all the dis
orders of the lungs and upper air-passages.
As soon as the oppression of the
chest, obstruction of the nasal ducts, and
unusual lassitude indicate that a "cold
has been taken" in other words, that an
air-poison has fastened upon the bronchi
ijs influence should at once be counter
acted by the purest and coldest air avail
able, and the patfcnt should not stop to
weigh the costs of a day's furlough
against the danger of a chronic catarrh.
In case imperative duties should interfere,
the enemy must be met after dark, by de
voting the first half of the night to an
outdoor campaign, and the second half
to an encampment before a wide-open
window. If the fight is to be short and
decisive, the resources of the adversary
must be diminished by a strict fast. De
nutrition, or the temporary abstinence
from food, is the most effective, and at
the same time the safest, method for elim
inating the morbid elements of the sys
tem; and there is little doubt that the
proximate cause of a catarrh consists in
the action of some microscopic , parasite
that develops its germs while the resistive
power of the respiratory organs is dimin
ished by the influence of impure air.
Cold air arrests that development by di
rect paralysis. Toward the end of the
year a damp, sultry day the catarrh
weather par excellence is sometimes f ol-
lowea by a sudden irost, ana at sucn,
times I have often found that a six hours'
inhalation of pure, cold night-air will
free the obstructed air-passages so effec
tually that on the following morning
hardly a slight huskiness of the voice
suggests the narrowness of the escape
from a two weeks' respiratory misery.
But, aided by exercise, out-door air of
any temperature will accomplish the same
effect. In two days a resolute pedestrian
can walk away from a summer catarrh of
that malignant type that is apt to defy
half-open windows. But the specific of
the movement-cure is arm-exercise
dumb-bell swinging, grapple-swing prac
tice, and woocUchopping. On a cold
morning (for, after all, there are ten win
ter catarrhs to one in summer), a wood
shed matinee seems to reach the seat of
the disease by an air-line. . As the chest
begins to heave under the stimulus of the
exercise, respiration becomes freer as. it
becomes deeper and fuller, expectoration
ceases to be painful, and the mucus is at
last discharged en masse, as if the system
had only waited for that amount of en
couragement to rid itself of the incubus.
A catarrh can thus be broken up in a sin
gle day. For the next half-week the diet
should be frugal and cooling. Fruit,
light bread and a little cold, sweet milk,
is the best catarrh-diet. A fast-day,
though, is still better. Fasting elects in
a perfectly safe way what the old-school
practitioners tried to accomplish by
bleeding; it reduces the semi-febrile con
dition which accompanies every severe
cold. There is no doubt that by exercise
alone a catarrh can gradually be "worked
off. " But in-doors it is apt to be steep, up
hill work, while cold air even before the
season of actual frosts acts upon pulmo
nary disorders as it does upon malarial
fevers ; it reduces them to a less malig
nant type. Dr. Oswald,in Popular Science
What Job Never Experienced.
Job was a man possessed of a great deal
of patience, and he was capable of stand
ing almost anything that came along in
the way of annoyance ; but we'll venture
to say that he never had a porous-plaster
on his back, right between the shoulder
blades, where he couldn't possibly reach
it with his hands, and where it was so
troublesome that he had to rasp his spine
on the edge of the door. Puck.
A correspondent who noticed an ac
count of a remarkable case of hereditary
longevity of life in a Scottish family,
recently printed, gives the record of the
Bigelow family, of Peru, Vt. In the in

ages of nine children amounted to 572
years ; but the correspondent states the
united ages of the seven daughters of
Mr. Asa Bigelow made a total of G08
years. These seven sisters were born in
1791, 1801, 1803, 1805, 1810, 1812 and

FARM, GARDEN AND HOUSEHOLD.
now to cut potatoes for planting has
been a subject of continual interest for
discussion in the farmers' clubs and the
meetings of the agricultural associations,
and the subject also of no little experi
ment; but unfortunately in this connec
tion as well as others, there is no definite
record of all the conditions prevailing at
the time of the experiments, 'or of the
quantitative results secured. The sub
ject is an important one, and has within
the last year or two been made a matter
of experiment. In Germany Lydecker
has directed his attention especially to
the value of the eyes ' on different parts
of the tuber, and the depth of planting
upon the quantity of the crop. He finds
that the end eyes are more prolific than
the side ones ; and that a better crop is
secured by shallow than by deep plant
ing. Woolny experimented with pota
toes that were uncut, those cut in the
direction of the long diameter through
the center, and those cut through the
short diameter, and his crops showed
that uncut potatoes furnish the best seed,
while of the parts of' cut potatoes' the
pointed ends were more prolific than the
other halves or the tubers, ne found
also that the pointed ends gave larger
tubers than the medium-sized whole po
tatoes. Except to increase the seed,
therefore, it is better, in view of the
quantity .and quality of the crop, to
plant whole uncut potatoes. On the
other hand, Forbisch finds that there is
a limit to the weight or size of the pota
toes to be used for seed, but he does not
state what this limit may be. Yet he
finds that the extension of disease in the
crop tends to increase with the increased
size of the seed.
The Care of a Colt.
Every farmer may rear a colt, or a pair
of them. And if he will do this and
turn the colts over to his boys for their
special care, and as their property, it will
be one excellent way of interesting them
in the farm work. And in the remarks
we now propose to make we intend them
specially for the boys' use. A boy and a
colt may get on very well together, for
as a rule a colt will do more for a boy
than it will for a man. A boy will pet
the colt and not kick it with a rough
boot if it is a little stupid at times, and
a colt knows what kindness is as well as
a boy does. The way to a colt's heart is
through its mouth, and it soon learns to
love and obey the hand that feeds it or
gives it sugar. But it needs training
from the very first and will learn all the
more and all the better the sooner its
training begins. The first lesson in
training a colt is to put on a halter,
a soft, easily fitting one, but it
must be 6trong and securely fastened.
The worst thing that can be done in the
training is to make mistakes and put the
colt off the right track. So that if a
colt's halter once breaks it may teach him
to become a confirmed halter-breaker
when a horse. After the halter had been
worn a day or two the colt should be
taught to . lead by it and to be tied up.
In leading the colt it should be taught
to walk along quickly, but not to run.
Walking is the first pace to be taught,
and a fast walking horse is worth a good
deal more to a fanner for his work than
one that could run a mile in a minute.
It makes a difference of one acre's plow
ing in a week, and of a mile an hour on
the road with a load. The next lesson
is to teach the colt to be handled all over,
to be rubbed with a soft wisp of straw,
to lift its feet, to stand over, to back,
and have its head handled. After every
lesson a little sugar should be given, or a
piece of bread with some sugar rubbed
on it. This will cause it to come to hand
when called, which is a very important
lesson to be taught well.
Overfeeding a colt is very hurtful. At
first, when a month old, the colt may be
taught to lick a little fine oatmeal with a
little sugar in it. A teaspoonful at first
is enough, and in a week it may have, a
tablespoonf ul. When it is three months
old a few oats may be given, but no corn
or cornmeal. A pint of oats a day will
be enough for another month or two, and
when a colt is six months old it may have
a ouart a day. If anything should hap
pen to the mare and a young colt is left
a helpless orphan it may be reared on
cows' milk by adding one-third warm
water and as much sugar as will make it
slightly sweet. Mare's milk has about
half as much fat and twice as much sugar
in it as a cow's milk, and cow's milk is,
therefore, not healthful for a colt unless
watered and sweetened. It is quite easy
to teach a colt to drink as a calf does;
but if it is weak at first it will suck from
a common nursing bottle or from a small
can with a spout or a coffee-pot with a
rag tied on the end of the spout.
The greatest care should be taken not
to make a colt angry, and never to whip
it. - In leading it it may be touched be
hind with a little switch if it pulls back,
and in leading it it should be held by
the halter and never by the end of a
rope, as then one has better control over
it. Lastly, kindness, patience, and firm
ness will enable a boy to teach a colt any
thing, just as a boy knows these will en
able a man to teach a boy anything.

Farm and Garden Notes.
Apricot .trees mayv be transplanted at
any age without suffering from the
A large area of the poorer land and of
the hill and mountain country, of no
agricultural value, is fitted for the profit
able growth of timber.
Lima beans are grown more success
fully if planted in rows, seed six inches
apart, than if planted in hills. .The rows
should be about three feet apart.
Mr. J. S. Woodward, of Lockport, N.
Y., grew last year a crop of six
rowed barley, estimated at eighty bushels
per acre. It was grown on land that had
been heavily manured for mangels the
previous season. .
Very good results have been obtained
from the application of from six to seven
hundred pounds of gypsum to an acre of
potatoes. Many farmers prefer to use
that amount in three applications during
the growing season.
The New York Times suggests that
farmers teep their seed wheat in some
caustic solution that will destroy the
germs of rust and smut. These sub
stances destroy the spores of seeds of the
minute " plants that produce the dis
eases. Smut is rapidly increasing, and
precautions should be taken to prevent
Drainage not only deepens the soil but
improves its texture and quality. The
roots of crops will penetrate only to the
depth at which the soil is drained. The
land that i3 well drained can be worked
sooner after rains and endures the drought
better, while the ground warms earlier ic
spring and permits of more abundant
crops and better tillage.
In the American Farmer Mr. D. Carter,
in giving an account of the growth of a
tomato on a pile of slaked shell lime,
states that it was four feet long and
abounded with tomatoes. He was sur
prised at its growth and fruitfulness un
der the conditions, and considered it
demonstrated that slaked shell lime was
the fertilizer for that plant, when heavily
applied, it seeming to answer all pur
poses. There is a point to be noticed in regard
to the introduction of new varieties ol
strawberries, which is that when grown
in localities different from that in which
they originated they sometimes disap
point the buyer. Very often an origi
nator manures highly, mutches well,keep9
down suplur blossoms and runners, and
cultivates carefully before displaying his
crop, while the variety may be really no
better than some other well-known
variety if given the same good treatment.
Salt has been greatly recommended as
a specific manure for the quince. It is
undoubtedly helpful, but it owes its
good effect more to its influence in keep
ing the soil moist and preventing its
freezing, than to any inherent manurial
properties. There are undoubtedly times
when salt is absolutely hurtful to quince
trees, applied in large quantities aftei
deep cultivation, which has broken, torn
and bruised the slender roots. Of the
mineral manures, potash in the form ol
wood ashes, leached or unleached, we
have found most beneficial.
One of the most successful persons in
raising peaches is Mr. Andrew Sweeten,
ot JNew Jersey, according to the Farm
Journal. The land is sandy but he
plants the trees deeper than they were
in the nursery. At time of planting he
places two quarts of lime and a small
quantity of manure on the surface about
each tree, cultivates well and raises truck
on the land until the trees are large. He
removes the surface earth around the
trees for two or three feet when manur
ing, making the depth about three inches,
and after filling the manure in covers it
In a well-planned system of farming
the subject of crop rotations should be
carefully considered, as one of the essen
tial elements of success in its highest and
best sense. Early writers on agriculture,
even from the times of the Greeks and
Romans, have quite uniformly urged the
advantages of a succession of crops from
the teachings of experience. That these
practical rules of alternating crops of
different habits and modes of growth are
based on correct but not fully explained
principles has been shown by direct ex
periment. At Rothamsted. England. Drs.
Lawes and Gilbert obtained nearly as
much wheat in eight crops, attended with
eight crops of beans, as in sixteen crops
of wheat grown consecutively without
manure in anothcr'field ; and also nearly
as much wheat as in eight crops alter
nated with ba refallow.
Ileinoringr Stains from Cotton or
liinen Goods, etc
, Grease spots are best removed by
soap; stains from oil colors, as a rule, do
not resist the action of a mixture of soap
and caustic potash. If spots of tar or
axle grease are unaffected by soap, they
will usually yield to the solvent action of
benzine (ordinary ether, or of butter,
which may afterward be removed with
soap and water. For ink stains, dilute
hydrochloric acid, which must subse
quently be carefully washed out, will
generally be found effectual. For the
same purpose oxalic acid or salts of sor
rel (hydrogen pottassium oxalate) may
also be employed, and that most eco
nomically, in fine powder to be sprinkled
over the stains and moistened with boil
The action of these solvents may be
hastened by gently rubbing, or still bet
ter, by placing the stained portion of the
fabric in contact with metallic tin. If
there is much iron rust to be removed,
dyer's tin salt (stannous chloride) will
perform the work at less expense than
the oxalic acid compound. Another
solvent for such stains consists of a mix
ture of two parts argol with one part
Bilberry stains usually yield to the
stains of burning sulphur. Stains caused
by red wine, white wine, and fruit juices
in general are treated successfully with
salts of sorrel or with solution of hypo
chlorite of soda. The latter especially
must be carefully removed when the ends
have been attained.
Another well-tried plan, when space is
available, is to spread the stained fabric
on the ground, in the open air, smear the
spots with soap, and sprinkle ground pot
ash or common salt upon them. Water
is added and replaced when lost by
evaporation. After two or three hours'
exposure the whole fabric maybe washed,
and will be usually freed from its stains.
Large Fortunes in Germany.
"Large fortunes are rare in Germany,
says Vanity Fair. The London World
replies that, on the contrary, there is. no
country where there are so many large
fortunes among "the territorial aris
tocracy." Tfa. Germany proper there are twenty-six
estates which are larger than any in,
Great Britain with the exception of the
Duke of Sutherland's domain; but an
enormous number of acres of his Scotch
estate are a trackless waste. The landed
possessions of Prince Schwartzenberg
cover 120 German square miles, those of
Prince Lichtenstein extend over 104;
square miles, Prince Esterhazy's eighty,
and Count Schonborn's sixty. There are
numerous estates of fifty square miles.
A Sharper's Trick.
A man, for having successfully played
this trick in Chicago, is now in prison :
Enter a grocery or drugstore and ask for
a cake of soap and tender a $10 bill in
payment. The clert returns a $5 bill
and $4.90 in change. Then discover
that you already had ten cents in change,
which you put with the $4.00, asking
the clerk at the same time to give you a
$3 bill for the change. After getting the
bill pull out the first $5 bill and say to
the clerk: "Here is $5 more just give
me back the $10." Simple as this plan
is, it frequently fools the confused clerk,
and leaves the customer $4.90 and a cake
of soap ahead. New York Eceninq Post.
