On soils containing any clay or min
erals a crust forms on the surface of
cultivated fields after every rain. It
is caused by the water of evaporation,
leaving all it mineral elements on the
surface, when it changes to moisture
This crust shuts out air from the soil
beneath it, and it is very important
that it be broken. Hence some stir
ring of the soil is needed after every
rain,-or corn and potatoes will suffer.
While these crops are small, dragging
over the surface breaks this crust and
prepares the way to more thorough cul
tivation after the rows can be seen.

The tendency among the best farm

grass when dried is too light and in
nutritious is disproved by the gains of
milk in cows aud of beef in other cat

cut hay dots dry away in weight con
siderably, but what weight remains is
nutriment. In grass that bas been

Elegant Autumn Mantles.
Demi-season mantles are of mate
Insse silk, of sicilienne, of velvet and
of fancy cloth. Both short mantles
and long cloaks are of tha most unique
shapes. The dlrectoire revers, flowing
collars and yokes of velvet are features
of new garments. Short round mantles
have a velvet yoke that lengthens into
a vest in front, and soft cloth is then ;
addod in greut plaits that keep their !
shape to the end of the wrap. Two j
materials appear in most cloaks and in
the shortest garments. The large
buttons of directolre cloaks are of
colored metals, cut steel, tinted pearl,
and also of velvet. Long cloaks are
of figured cloths, with velvet directoire
revers, and some have sleeves thatj
extend to the foot of the garment,!
and are bordered there with velvet ori
with fur. Bears' fur and others ol

fashionable trimming for winter cloaks.

handling the oar and rudder. They
know every sunken rock and danger
u current of the intricate channel
between the great island of Aran and
the main land, and take the boat in

years a Grace Darling' of this Western

about between Aran and Owey owed I

John Nancy, being now old and infirm.

of this dangerous coast have a weird

round-backed rocks. In the hollows of

crop, when as good as now, will last
throughout the winter.

craft often go out from four to six
miles off Aran Heads. Next day they
all come back laden, and after such a
take all the other boats in the neigh

There whs a time when all Americans
"tooked habitually to London sm the

That time is long passed; a generation

The reverence giv--i the London of
Coleridge and MacjTiny. - of Darwin
and Carlyle. can hardly be claimed for
the London which takes seriously such
literary representatives as Rider Hag
gard and Oscar Wilde. It is sixty
years ago since Heinrich Heine surely
no Puritanic observer pointed out
that the English were already "seeking
to be light and frivolous, and endeavor
ing to creep into the monkey's skin
which the French were gradually
stripping off." It is impossible for us
to revert to the old colonial tradition
of English dependence, and equally
impossible to revert to the still earlier
attitude of the noble savage. Happily
neither alternative is required. The
foundations of American literary train
ing already date back two hundred and
fifty years, without including our
common share in all the English
literature which pi ceded that period.
The real foundations are broader than
English literatur e, broader even than
the ocean, the forests and the prairies;
for they are as broad as the soul of
man. As for books, the invention ol
printing has given to literature this
enormous advantage over plastic art,
that you may easily carry with you in

' Tlie first iiijii-ta.tion of autumn
wttoluns promise a season of plain
goods in new shade- and new weaving.
Solid color largely predominate, and
are given novel effects by being woven
in stripe in most varied way, as, for
Instance, there are repped stripes al
ternating with diagonal stripes, cordd
stripes with satin-finished stripea,
zigzag chuddah stripes with cash
mere twilled stripea or . arraure
and bird's-eye woven stripes with
those of lengthwise reps or cords;
and these stripes are further varied in
widths, ranging from hair lioes and
half-inch modest stripes to those more
bold and effective, from one to three
lDchs wide, while clusters of one kind
of stripe are massed to form wide
stripes that alternate with solid stripes
of a third kind of weavine. Many
high-finished poods are shown in plain
fabrics with the silken glossy surfaces
produced by closely woven twills;
these will be found becoming- to
women of dark complexion, who
delight in luster, and have given
up dull rough stuffs, even though
of the finest qualities. Cashmeres
are given a silken finish like that ot
Henrietta cloths, yet have no silk in
then, and they are also woven in
stripes, and are strewn with large dots
that are made to look even more silky
than the groundwork. Plain Henrietta
cloths are imported "entirely of wool,
and are also mixed with silk in such
large proportion that the dealers call
them saUeen Henriettas. It is tha ex
perience of dress-makers that these

finest wool and silk, will slip and fray

diagonal stuffs drap d'Alma is revived,
with its widely woven twill, and there
is a great deal of rough camel" s-hair

and in stripes. The soft fine chuddah
cloths for both house and street dresses
are made in France, but closely imitate

For winter costumes ladies' cloth is
again Imported in the light weights
introduced last year, and in all the
new dull colors.
Bordered costumes are largely im
ported for autumn and winter, both of
plain and striped woolens. Cashmere
figured borders are on the richest
goods, and are of great width, in palm
leaves and other India designs in very
gay colors, and also in the gray and
quiet shades familiar in the borfiers of
Paisley shawls. Many striped borders
are also along one selvage of plain
woolens, and some of these borders
have s'lk wovea in the stripes. Other
borders are ombre or shaded, and still
others are entirely of repped silk. A
wide selvage like that of nuns' veiling
is the simple border of many rough
surfaced wool goods, while a novelty is
a border of large plaids on plain solid
covered materials. Hair-striped fab
rics have very wide plain borders along
one sei vage, and there are plain cloths
wit 8 etriped borders ia dull cashmere
color. Tinsel borders of gay metallic
stripes are new on dull-colored wool
ens. Steel and silver borders and
stripes are especially handsome.
Colored stripes and plaids are shown
both separate and together; for instance,
there are fine silk and wool goods with
plaided stripes of great width alterna
ting with plain stripes, and there are
gay tartan plaid stripes on grounds of
most quiet colors. Rough woolens in
very large plaids nre considered stylish
in dark dull greens, and in combina
tions- ot green witn gray, or green
with brow ii, blue with brown, and blue
with purplish red shades. Indeed, all
dull-colored plaids are about to be re
vived. Harper's Bazar.
BUILDING SOCIETIES. '
The Most Reliable Serines Institutions
for Salaried Men.
It is not many years since building as
sociations were looked upon with strong;
distrust by workmen. They could not
understand the methods upon which
the associations were based, and be
cause they could not or rather would
not, they refused to take advantage of
the opportunities they offered. All
this is being changed. The first build
ing association in this country waa
organized in New York, but before
it waa in successful operation ten had
been organized in Jfew York, but be
fore it was in successful operation ten
had been organized in Philadelphia,
and the members were reaping1 the
benefits by building homes. A paper
published in the interest of buildiDg
associations gives the following statis
tics: In New York there are 2,000
associations; in Philadelphia, 2.700;
Boston, fWO; Chicago, 300; St. Louis,
79. In St. Louis, in the past five years,
it is estimated that 8,500 homes have
been built by members of building aa
sociations. That these associations
have done a great work in inciting
salaried men to build their own homes
there can be no doubts Manufacturers
ought to encourage their men to build
homes. It is safe to say that any work
man who owns his own home will be
more attentive to his work and more
faithful to his employer. In furnish
ing an employe an opportunity and a
motive to save, the employer would
foster a feeling of mutual interest be
tween him and his men that would
work to his interest. This has been
done successfully in Philadelphia, and
there is no reason why it can not b
done just as successfully any where,
else. Stoves and Hardware.
