they may be freely fed to oowa.
One effect of pumpkin seeds is their
action upon the kidneys. They are
given as a diuretic medicine, as stated
bv Wood & Bacheiu their Dispensatory,
and also used to expel tape-worm.
Those who have watched their effect
upon milch cows, believe that this ac
tion upon the kidneys reduces their
yield of milk. And this is certainly the
natural effect that extra action of the
kidneys mu it have upon the secretion
of milk. Strong action like this must

Ch nese eat pumpkin seeds between the
courses at dinner. This may be as an
appetizer or digester.
These seeds are rich in. nitrogen and
oil. They are certainly very nutritious,
and cattle and hogs are often eager to
eat them. Some feeders of swine have
been very successful in feed ng pump
kins as a large part of the ration in fat
tening then.. Experience seems to have
been contradictory on this matter, but
the explanation is simply this: The
seeds in small quantity are not delete
rious to animals in good health, but
when it happens in breaking or cutting
up pumpkins that the seeds get separat

these accumulated seeds are thrown to
the animals in a mass, and an extra

It is to be presumed that if hogs or
young cattle eat only the common pro
portion of seeds that is, if it eats a
pumpkin and the seeds that belong to
it, no harm will be done, unless the pig
or steer is in an unhealthy condition.
But as the seeds are so liable to get
separated from the body of the pump
kin, it is safer to separate them, and if
fed, give them in very small quantity.
It is the seeds alone that act deleteri-
ously upon the kidneys.
The pumpkin is a profitable crop to
raise for feeding all the animals on the
farm. Two to three tons per acre may
be raised with very little labor in the
corn field, and the food value per ton is
greater than the best corn fodder. But
it is not advisable to feed the seeds to
milch cows—the danger is greater than
the advantage.— Prof. Slewart, in Coun
The tendency of a certain sort of
people to be fascinated by notoriety,
and especially by criminal notoriety, is i
a curious study. A recent dispatch '
says that Mrs. Bartlett, the woman
lately tried in England on a charge of
poisoning her husband, has, since her
acquittal, received several advantageous i
offers of marriage. Parallel cases may
be found in plenty. Some twenty
years ago a Scotch girl named Made
leine Smith was tried at Glasgow for
poisoning her lover. The evidence
was strong against, her, but it was
shown that the lover was a disreputa
ble adventurer who had driven the girl
to desperation by threatening her with
the exposure of certain letters she had
written to him. and the jury returned
the Scotch"verdict “Not Proven.” No
sooner was the prisoner free than offer-
of marriage poured in upon her, and
this notwithstanding the general belief
that she had killea the man. There
appears to be a sort of “crank” theory
of ethics, incomprehensible by the
world at large, which governs such
cases, for on ordinary lines of reason
ing it is impossible to understand the
desire of any man to link his life with
a woman even suspected of a proclivity
toward the use of toxic agents at criti
cal domestic junctures.
Nevertheless it is certain that female
poisoners from Lucrezia Borgia to th<
Marchioness of Brinvilliers, and thence
to the present day, have exercised this
strange fascination upon a class of weak
minds, aud uot only poisoners or sus
pected poisoners, but criminals of al)
kinds have had the same peculiar horn
age paid to them. Laura Fair, who
shot down Crittenden, the California
lawyer, could have married any one of
a dozen prosperous idiots after her ac
quittal. Mrs. Dudley, who tried to kill
O’Donovan Rossa, was offered several
hands and hearts on the strength of
her homicidal enterprise. The young
woman who played the part of a female
burglar in Brooklyn last year captured
the affections of a stalwart farmer bj
her felonious capacity. Perhaps th«
dominant influence in those cases is
that which attracted Fitz-James:
