hunting cxtedition to the mountains.
Lhey had with them a goxl supply of
ammunition, blankets and UmhI, he-
hide taking with them a tent. They
pitched. their tent at the bead water
of the , wtst fork of Erownlee ererk,
and about' noon of the 2nd of Dcceru-
ler they started in search of deer.
When out some time they separato-d.
White's statement in to the effect that
be lookel around for Brown but could
not fiud him, and returned to the tent
id the evening. Brown did not re
turn up to the eud of forty-eight hours
so White returned to the terry and
notified the people there that enow had
fallen to the depth of two feet Inrfore
be hit csmp. On lit rcporU-g
Brown's disappearance, all the mn in
the neighborhood start d in search of
the body, ami remained out until snow
interfered, but during the entire sum
mer men h;ve been looking for the
body, without ucce-. Two months
ago a band of Indian went through
the mi unUint but could tet no tid
ings of the misiDg" nua ; bat on the
20h inet. Mr. Thomas. Arthur, while
hunting, uncovered a gun and a pir
of mitten, lying at the iaead of a
small gulch. Mr. Murphy reported
the matter to the senior Mr. Brown at
the ferry, and a party of searchers
started out on the 22nd, and the fol
lowing day Andy Williamson found
the skeleton of a man, about a quarter
of a mile from the lent, and about the
same distance from where the mittens
and gun had been found. The gun
when found, was still loaded. the
body was intact, showing that it liad
not been molested by wild animals.
The body was lying on its back, and
indications are that be was on hia w.iy
to the tent when he fell. Blood marks
were found on his clothing, and the
coioner deemed it advisable to hold an
lr.queat on the remains. xJrowu was
32 years old, and leaves a widow and
three children. Ale. Charles W bite.
who accompanied Brown on the ex
petition, is described an a crank. One
man relates a story oi lute being
on the road with a friend some time
go. White was riding a mule, tut
had run out of feed, liis friend had
an abundance of it, and told White to
tu-e some, bat rather than do it he took
the mule into the mountain and shot
it. Since the finding of Brown's body
White has been running like a wild
man along the banks of a crev k
There are some fears that he is insane.

This is what a good many farmers
want to know, that is how to make
more corn, and here isV bit of aeiwi
ble talk abut tbe matter The best
way to get more corn is get increased
yield from the same acreage. A poor
corn crop necessarily . cost so much
labor that it rarely pays a profit. But
if the land is manured highly and cul
tivated thoroughly the crop rarely or
never fails to pay. It is easily poiUe
to double the corn yield on the pres
ent acreage, and that, oo, without
coming near the large yields which
have been obtained in special cases.
. The advantages of dishorning old
animals have, probably been exagger
ated. A bull or cow used to hooking
i only temporarily made harmless -jr
dishorning. While the receuHj, wouiula
are ore, such auimal will keep quiet,
but with returning freedom from pain
will be found A return of former vio
iotisimasv. The art of butting is not
lost with the horna, ami a g od butt- r,
if viciously inclined, needs to be
guarded against with or without horna.
It is held that the destruction of the
cabbage worm may be aceonip!Uhod
by the ue of pyrethruro. It should

It 1 easily possible in season of
abundant b'ossoming for one-half tbe

does not do it the right way. Tho ap

is to spray tho tree with Paris greenio

thus exhausts the vitality of the tree.
Tbe corn crop In all the great corn-
producing Slates is a very largo one
and is now safely ripened. No oth-.M
grain crop is quite so important a this
to the prosperity of all branches of
farming, aud therefore of the entire
country. It i the pivot upon which
everything elae swings. The crop thia
year wm te something more than
2,000,000,000 bushels, and in butter,
cheese, beef and pork will largely
swell our exports, and make up for the
deficiency tn our wheat crop.
Oat are almost exclusively sold by
weight, and all grain should be. There
is a great difference in the, weight of
this grain, varying with season, variety
... ... . .
ana locality. etemoaia, lor some
cause, are much lighter than those
grown in New York and Eastern
States. The standard weight per
bushel is also two to four pounds lea,
Light oats are usually caused by hot
dry weather as the grain ia filling,
W herever sucb weather prevails the
seed quickly degenerates, and needs to
be .renewed every few years by import
ations from Euroie, where cooler Hum
mers make the. coudilions for grow

here. , .
Desperate efforts are made by some
farmers to finish plowing or planting
or cnltivating'a crop just to, beat some
neighbor who has the . enviable repu
tation of always being ahead of anv
ioneelee with his work. ' The idea of
keeping work well in hand is a good
one, and the honor of leading the-v. in
in a neighborhood in all kinds of work
is one worthy 4o be son grit after; but
there are other considerations that tire
'of much more importance than that
or being able to. say that no one is
farther along with their work thxn
rou ale. Ground is sometimes made
haid to cultivate by being plowed
.while too wet, and crops, are Borne
times ruined by putting the med in
the earth when it is nt in tbe proper
condition. The farmer who raises ihe
best crops, and does it with the legist
trouble and cost, is generally .the man

There appears to be every indication
that within the next five year enor
mous stride will be made by the United
States towards securing adequate pro
tection against foreign Invasion. This
protection will not be accomplished,
in alt probability, by the old obaoleto
system of fortifications which were
sufficient for other days and genera
tions in the early part of tbe present
century. Instead of them, the United
States will probably be armed . with
weapons of defensive warfare so power
ful in their destructive capacity as to
convince the would-be invader that hia
armada may be blown out of the water
and totally annihilated before he can
fire bis first gun, no matter how
thickly plated with armour his vessel
may be. A great deal baa leen heard
within the ptist few months of the
ZslinHki dynamite gun, and tlie army
appropriation bill carries an item of
$0"K,000 to bo used in supplying the
military service f the United States
with this gun. It is also understood
that the naval bill will have a similar
amount for lik weapons for the nary. there is another method for firing
dynamite which will also be adopted.
In "all probability, aud which, owing to,
Its simplicity, promises greater results
than tho Zalluakl gun. During the
Tonquln war the Chinese Government
employed an offlirerof the United State
navy, namely, Lieutenant GrayUon, to
block ths Canton river in order that
the progress of the French fleet might
be ehked. Lieutenant Graydon could
not secure an extended leave of ab
sence) for the purpose of conducting
this work, and, in Consequence, re
signed hi position in the United States
uavy. He. was so successful In his
work that he wa offered something
llkeWO.O0O by the Viceroy of Ton
quln to blockade in a similar manner
the Mia river, but the Viceroy of Can
ton, fearing a visit of the Fronch fleet,
declined to allow him to leave and tbe
offer had to be declined, and the result
was that Foo Chow was captured, by
the French.
Lieutenant Gravdon ha devised a
system for firing dynamite from ordi
nary cannon, which system has been
tested at Sandy Hook with remarkable
it milt. There waa presented to the Mil
itary Committee of the House coblea of
Wtera from several of the foremost
military and naval officers of the coun
try, In which they spoke. In terms of
the highest ."praise of the Graydon
method of exploding dynamite. Ad
miral Jouett expresses the firm convic
tion that the use of dynamite, with its
onderful power to annihilate, will
prove to be the moct effective means
of checking warefare. As soon as the
nations of the earth ascertain that the
declaration of war means absolute de
struction for their fleets and their sol
diers, arbitration will bo resorted to,
instead of apKaling to gunpowder and
tho sabir. A large sum has been ap
propriated fdr testing this new weapon.
and aa experiment will probably be
made under the direction of the offi
cers of the army and navy some time
this ' summer, as to ita effectiveness

The leper community is on the
island of Molokaia, In the Hawaiian
archipelago. On this island are a
number of precipitous peaks, and at
the . base of one of these, which
is three thousand foet high, lie the
Kaluapapa plains, stretching seaward,
and wholly without communication
with the rest of the island, except by
sea, as the wall of rock stretches oa
either side to the water's edge. To
this plain, thus isolated by nature,- all
lepers are banished as soon as the first
symptoms of the disease appear. This
settlement was formed by order of the
King in lH'Mi, for it waa found that in
spite of stringent commands to secure
the isolation of individual cases, these
could not be c irried out while the lep
ers were allowed to live with their
families and friends. Outside of the
fact that the lopers are debarred from
any direct communication witn . bob -
infected persons, no restriction is laid
uptfh them. Their village, which has
usually an average of about eight hun
dred inhabitants, has its churches,
schools, and stores as the other vil
lages have, and also"Goverament offices.
The Government provides all with
shelter, necessary clothing, and daily
rations of good food, for all luxuries
they must depend upon their own re
sources or the- generosity of friends.
Medicine and the attendance of a phy
sician are provided by the Government,
which also appropriates $20,000 a year,
a certain proportion of which is to be
given for every instance of actual cure
in the case, of a leper. All officials on
the- island are lepers: the teachers,
and the ministers, with the exception
of a Roman Catholic priest, are lepers.
These unfortunates employ themselves
in various ways; have a band of music
and a military drill. There is a large
hospital, kept in admirable condition.
in which the more advanced ana more
serious cases are cared for. The lepers

Much uncertainty exists as to why this
blossom has been, so much worn by
brides; but the general opinion seems to
be that it was adopted as an emblem of
fruitf ulness. The custom of using orange '
blossoms at bridals has been traced to
the Saracens, among whom the orange
blossom was regarded as a symbol of a

which is partly to be accounted for by
the fact that in the Ease the orange tree
