Last year I had two patches half a
mile apart, one hard, tough black land
which we call “gumbo,” very difficult
to tend. I did not expect much of a
crop, but we framed them up and had
a tine crop of very large tomatoes of
the Imperial variety. We gathered
bushels and bushels of them every sec
ond or third day till frost, at which
time they were as large as ever, and
many green ones coming on. I think
one reason of their doing so well was
that we pruned them. We framed one
Turner Hybrid vine which stood off to
itself, and I never saw so many and
such fine tomatoes as we secured from
that vine. We weighed several that
went 2 pounds each, and we wished af
terward that we had weighed the en
tire product of the vine, as I never saw
so many large ones on one vine. The
other patch was on light sandy soil,
much easier to tend: we framed most
of them; they did well till frost came,
but were very small and knotty at the
last. Our tomatoes did not keep well,
and I would like to ask whether they
should be very soft and ripe to keep
well. Mine were so large they rotted
before becoming very rii>e. Some say

material—a piece of old gum boot top
will answer. This may be tacked se
curely to the float. The hole in the
spike should be small, so that the flow
of milk through it when in use shall
correspond with the natural flow from
the cow's udder. As the milk in the
pail is used, the float follows down
ward, enabling the calf to get all the
milk In the pail. To prevent the calf
from throwing the float out of the pail
two cleats are tacked on inside of same,

that the float may lie readily removed

Many dairymen and others who milk
cows for profit believe that when a cow
reaches the age of 7 or 8 her useful
days are over, and that she should be
replaced by one younger, says a writer
in the New York Tribune. But, other
things being equal, this is a mistake.
A cow that has been well cared for,
with generous rations and proper at
tention given to her comfort, through
all seasons of the year, is better and
will make a more profitable return at 8
years than at an earlier age; In other
words, she is In her prime, and she will
continue in this condition several years,
and will not be considered an old cow
until fourteen or fifteen years have
passed. Cows with first calve®—at 2
or 3 years—are generally unprofitable
in their milk yield, and one really good
cow between 7 and 8 years old will pay
a better revenue than two that are per
forming their first year's duties in the
dairy herd, and she will probably con
sume but little more food than one of
the younger ones. This fact is worthy
the consideration of those who are
dairying for profit

often forms a crust, and the seeds dry

The application of paper as above di

Our illustration shows a home-made
potato coverer that is very simple in
construction. The two sides approach
each other toward the rear ends, thus
bringing the two sides directly across
each of the two rows lying side by side.
When furrowing these rows, let the
earth be turned outward In each of the
two rows to be covered by the machine.
This will result in drawing the earth
back over the seed, and will not ridge
it up between the rows. The furrows
can be made In sets of two each, for
this purpose. The horse goes between
the rows, and the handles permit one
to draw back over the seeds Just

German Rewriting the Playa in Eliza
Rani's Hern Sounds a Warning Note
to the Unredeemed«
Dr. Eduard Engel has written the fol
lowing letter to one of the Berlin news
“In a lecture I delivered some years
ago to the Berlin Society of Stenogra
phers, who use Stolze’s system, I sug
gested that those accurately acquainted
with the oldest English shorthand sys
tems of the sixteenth century should
try to ascertain whether many of the
deficiencies of the text of Sliakspeare
might not lie explained by stenograph
ic mistakes. The idea was suggested to
me by the old and well-founded conjec
ture of Shakspearean scholars that the
oldest copies of Shakspeare's plays—the
so-called quartos—were printed from
stenographic notes, taken in the thea
ter, and that many of rhe unlntelllglblll-
tles of the text are due to this. My
suggestion fell on fruitful soil, aud I
have now the pleasure of making the
excellent work of a young savant, who
has thus sitrung at one leap into the
ranks of our best Shakspearean schol
ars, known to wider circles. In a series
of articles on Shakspeare and the be
ginnings of English stenography, Herr
Kurt Dewischeit has proved beyond the
shadow of a doubt that the quarto edi
tions of Shakspeare's plays were pira
ted editions printed from stenographic
notes, that the stenographic system
used was that of Timothy Bright, who
was lM>ru in 1550, and that innumerable
mistakes in the quartos. Innumerable
contradictions between them and the
first authorized folio editions, can be at
once and most simply explained by the
defects of that stenographic system and
the indexterity of the stenographers of
tliat time. Herr Dewischeit has con
firmed my conjecture almost beyond
my own expectation. He is at present
the only person who jiossesses all the
requisite qualifications for this quite
new kind of text investigation, and it is
to be wished that he. with his accurate
knowledge of the oldest English sten
ography, combined with solid Shak
spearean scholarship, would subject
the texts of the dramas to a thorough
relnvestigatfon. The purification of the
text of Shakspeare is raised by him for
the first time from arbitrary fantastic
ality to the rank of a strict science,
with which, however, only Shakspear
ean scholars theoretically and practic
ally trained in stenographic questions
are at liberty to busy themselves. Sel
dom has a higher, never has a more de
lightful, task fallen to stenography.”
