There seems to bs no doubt whatever
but what the plum fcurculio (Gvn

ply spraying the trws with arsenical
poisons (Paris green and London pur

weeks after the petals fall; (3) then
after three weeks again, and (4) for
perfection, so soon as through blossom

It eventually to rot, A Michigan gen
tleman told me that he had two large,
thrifty European plums. "They bloomed
freely each year, but the enrculio laid
her eggs in nearly every plum, and all
the fruit that was not wormy rotted be
fore ripening. Spring before last I
sprayed the trees thoroughly once with
London purple in water about two
weeks after the blossoms fell. That
season they matured so great a crop of
the finest fruit that I was obliged to
prop up all the branches. Bat to my
soitow this large crop so weakened the
vitality of my trees that the uext
spring both were dead, lhe spraying
seemed to kill nearly every curcuhi.
scarcely a fruit showed her ovipositing
work, and the plums all ripened with
out rot." This shows two valuable les
sons: (1) Spraying has proven a sh
cess, and (2) an overburdensome crop
is deathly, especially to a plum.
These sentiments are exactly in lim
with sense, reason and experience, and
especially w nil onr native plums; for
these fruits are the natural food plant
and breeding place of the plum curculio.
This beetle passes the winter ia the
beetle state, "holed np" like a- wood-
chuck, and emerges in the spring hun
pry. She at once seeks her natural
food plant these plums on which to
feed, seemingly m preference to all
other trees. She nsnally reaches them
before they bloom; therefore just before
the blassoms opn is the time to spray
the trees. But for some reason many
of the beetles do not lay their eggs in
the fruit until June; hence the necessity
of late spraying, for it is possible that
these late egg-laying beetles reach the
trees late. If the native plums are not
within her reach the beetle is forced to
accept allied plants of the almond family
to which the plain belongs, such as the
oherry, peach, apricot, etc, and lay her
eggs in their fruits. It is of course
. possible that the cherrh, being so close
akin to the plums, they aay be as ac
ceptable to her for food as the plums.
but it is hardly probable. Therefore it
is entirely reasonable that, if we have
plenty of native plums in and around
our orchards of other' fruits, by
spraying the plums we will destroy
this curculio sufficiently for all prac
tical pnrooses, and so protect all the
other fruits from her destructive work.

Brainless Individuals Who Talk Without
i;xprcslor Thooehts.
Conversation among persons who are
very intimate should be the best con
versation, si no one need speak unless
he feels impelled so to do by the stir
ring of thought within; but the ir.
retei-ate small-talker has lost the power
?f distinguishing between the talk that
expresses thoughts and the talk that
merely articulates sounds. His idea of
talking is confined to the practice of
"making conversation; even in argu
ment he passes much time in repeating
what lias been said m slightly different
words; and. when no subject is under
discussion, and when he is not gifted
with high talents, the grotesque artifices
to which he is someti jaes reduced woald
be absurd if they were not so irritating.
If he only talked, and said nothing
that insisted on answers, he might
more easily be forgiven; hut this is
rarely his way. An irritating small
talker. who, though ia reality
neither deaf nor absent-minded, eked
out his speech by insisting on. having
everything that was said to him re
peated twice, sometimes thrice. I have
known to repeat his "What was that
von said?" after he ha I answered the
remark that had been made, and when
this was pointed ont to him he only
smiled the satisfied smile of the small
talker, who thinks hi3 sins merits, and
docs not blush to own them. Sach a
Baialt talker calls tnese atrocious ae
linqnencies conversational talent, and
because it is sometimes necessary to
ppeak idly think3 it is a good deed to
do so at all times rather than main
tain a wholesome silence. But, indeed,
others beside these obvious criminals
Ein in speaking idly.
Small talk has its nses in expressing
indefinite friendliness, though even this
would probably be better expressed by
some inarticulate sound, if we could
only agree on one; but it should never
be forgotten that small talk or talk of
no consequence is in itself of less
than no value, and that if on all occa
sions, except those of necessity, we put
onr energies to improving our ideas
rather than to ottering words; in short,
if we talked less and thought more, we
and our friends would in all ases be
much the better for It London Queen.

Historical Fact Concerning Pennsylvania'!
I'rliu'lnnt Heat of .earning.
The University of Pennsylvania bear
tho distinction of being the only Amer
ica educational Institution that wn
ever s-tolen. A uniitio distinction, in
deed. It liaopeued rather oddly, in
this way: The English nobility, hav
ing contributed most of tho funds
upon which the school wa founded,
asked King Georgo 111 1 1 see to it that
the institution in the new country did
not fall into the hands of any religious
sect. The King complied and sent
over word that, if any more money was
expected from England, a guaranty
must be given that Dissonters. Quakers,
nor anylwxly e'sc, should ever exclude
from it Church of England communi
cants, but that the school should
fore- er le for the general
good of all classes. The resolution
was passed and Franklin saw it safely
entered upon the records. Nevcrthe
less, a few years later tho Legislature
of Pennsylvania, taking this resolution
as a text, declared that the purposes of
the institution had been narrowed, and
in order that such a thing should not
occur again, they confiscated all tho
titles and endowment funds given by
England. They named tho school the
University of Pennsylvania. In this
way was the institution stolen and put
into its present- Governmental condi
tion. Its important dates, therefore,
nre: Founded by Franklin . In 1748;
stolen bv the Legislature of Pennsyl
vania In 1779; restored and set up in
present shape in 175)1.
In internal structure the University
of Pennsylvani t is nearer like the Eng
lish univeisities than any othor in this
country. It more nearly embodies the
university idea as represented by such
schools as Oxford, Cambridge, Berlin
and Strasbnrg. Its most famous de
partment is the medical, which is the
oldest college of medicine in America.
Connected closely with it is the Biolog
ical School, which is one of tho newest
departments, yet about the first school
in this line to be founded on this side
of the Atlantic. It is a school for tin
study of both plant and animal life in
every form and is intendoi to supple
ment th strnV js of the medical man,
the scientist and the naturalist. Then
there is the Veterinary College, which
is fast revolutionizing the study of the
horse and his medieal treatment; the
School in Dentistry, and the Wharton
School of Finance and Economy, In
which is the first and only chair in
American history in this country. In
all of tha departments are about four
teen hundred pupils.
The social side of university life is
almost wholly confined to the time
spent inside the college walls. This is
quite finlike most other Eastern col
leges, and is so chiefly because there
are no dormitories connected with the
institution. The pupTi lose themselves
from each other in the city, and are
only able to meet r,' the grand ball on
"Ivy Day," and the junior ball and at
the one concert given every spring by
the University Glee Club. There.are
a few secret fraternities, but they are
not strong, nor do they seem to enter
into the existence cf the ftudent as
they do in most other colleges. Phila

reader knows the hunchbacked Rich

but historical research seems to
have delivered the King from

was only high shouldered. Lord Lyt

adopted the modern view. "Though
the back was not curved," he says,
"yet one shoulder was slightly higher

A wife must learn how to form her
husband's happiness; in what direction
the secret of his comfort lies; she must
not cherish his weaknesses by working
upon them, she must not rashly run
counter to his prejudices. Her motto
must be never to irritate. She must
study never to draw largely upon the
small stock of patience in man's na
ture; nor to increase his obstinacy by
trj-ing to drive him; never, if possible,
to have scenes. I doubt very much if
a real quarrel, even if made up, does
not loosen the bond between man and
wife, and some times, unless the affec
tion of both be very sincere, lastingly.
If irritation does occur, a woman must
expect to hear from most men even a
strength and vehemence of language
far more than the occasion requires.
Mild as well as stern men are prone to
this exaggeration of language; let not
a woman be tempted ever to say any
thing sarcastic or violent in retalia
tion. The bitterest repentance must
needs follow such an indulgence if she
do. Men frequently forget what they
have themselves said, but seldom what
Is uttered by their wives. They are
grateful, too, for forbearance in such
cases; for, whilst asserting most loudly
that they are right, they are often
conscious that they are wrong(!) Give
a little time, as the greatest boon you
can bestow, to the irritated feeling of
your husband. 2f. T. Ledger.
Species That Awakened to Renewed
After 'lnety-ve Weeks. -
The power of tho mosses to endure
repeated desiccation has recently been
experimentally treated by G. Schroder,
who obtained the interesting result
that many of these plants can not only
resist months of dryness without, any
harm, but also that they do not perish
even under the strongest desiccation
carried on in a drier with the aid of
sulphuric acid. Plants of Barbula
muralis, which were exposed for eight
een months in the drier, after a few
wettings resumed growth in all their
parts. Other species of Barbula be
haved similarly. A curious experi
ment was performed with Onwrnu
pulvinata, in which a stock which
had been cultivated for some
time in a moist atmosphere
under a bell glass was suddenly ex
posed to warm and perfectly dry cur
rent of s-ir. It became so ary in a snort
time, that it could be pulverized. Then
it lay in a drier for ninety -five weeks.
But the quickening moisture was still
competent to awake it to renewed life.
The most rapid drying which could be
performed in the laboratory could not
destroy the plant. It even shorred
greater power of resistance than would
correspond with its real necessities,
for so speedy and complete a drying
out as was effected in the experiments
never occurs in Matur. - The fact that
a property acquired by adaptation is
so plainly manifested in excess is some
times otherwise demonstrable, and is a
hard problem for the theory of selec
tion. Popular Science Monthly.
A recent issue of the I.os Angeles
Tribune says: Mr. Cawston, of the
Norwalk Ostrich Farm, sold yesterday
eighteen ostrich oluc!c3, hatched from
one trio of birds, for ?4;55. This sale
gives Mr. Cawston a return of over
1,000 from this trio of birds inside of
a year. The breeders wero imported
eighteen months ago. The cost of the
birds i3 nominal, as the birds graze
over three acres of alfalfa."
"The left foot, please," said a
shoe dealer, as a customer was about
to test the size of a pair of shoes by
trying one upon his right foot. "You
see," explained the dealer, "the left
foot is larger than the right. Every
body to whom I make that statement
is surprised, for people believe that in
case of the feet as well as the hands
lhe right is the larger. Observation
has convinced me, however, that while
i.he right hand is larger than the left,
'.ho left foot is larger than the right."

In order to economize space, and get
the gre atest returns from the ground
occupied, there have been erected ;
down town in New York a number of
very tall structures. In these immense
buildings rooms nre set apart in the
upiHir stories for restaurants. The
cooking is all done in a kitchen situated j
on the very top story, and the cook j
instead of being itumured In an under-
ground basement, can look out of the
window upon the roof of the houses of
the greater part of the city. It is be
lieved that in all the tall houses where
families live,, it would be found bet er
to hare the cooking on top of the build
ing rather than down below, so as to
get rid of the odors which usually come
when food is being prepared in the
kitchen. In the Union League Club of
New York the cooking is done on the
top story for this reason. In all the
leading commercial and banking
houses of Nw York lunch is served at
midday in a room set ap irt for the
purpose, and the book-keepers, clerks
and other employes are not expected
to leave the building for their meals.
This practice dates from n
very sensiblo observation. of
Lady Burdett Coutts, now
Mr.. Bartlett She Is the richest wo
man in the wotld, and the owner of a
great private bank. She noticed that
when the clerks left for their midday
lunch, that sonic of them spent more
time out-doors than was necessary,
while others came back evidently undci
the influence of iiquor. So she induced
her business agents to provide a lunch
in the bank building. The experiment
proved so satisfactory that the Bank of
England made the same provision, and
since then the practice has been adopt
ed in most of tl:s large banking and"
mercantile houses of the woild. Of
course, it is not so much for the good
habits of their clerks and employes
that the managers of these institutions
care, but for tho more interested rea
son that they get ni're work out of
them, and ayjid possiblj errors, due to
the indulgence of their clerks and
bookkeepers in strong drinks. But the
practice 13 a good one, for eating devel
