Death of General Key.
- PauIsv France, Pfh SStlt 1831.
The utmost sensation was produced in
Paris this morning by the intelligence that
Ocneral Ney, Due d' Elchlrgcn, had been
found dead yesterday at Chatttllori, one of
I.U estates. It appears that on Jlonday af-j

was scarcely tounched. jT',e other ball,
however, aimed at thc riglit temple, had
gone through the skull and occasioned in
stant death. The disappearance of the Due
d' Elchingen had already led to the most
extraordinary rumors. Some thought that
he had been murdered, others that some
mysterious duel had taken place for it will
be remembered that the General figured as
a witness at the Woestyncj trial. iNeither
explanation now appears I probabllc. The
Duke has been found with his jewellery and
and purse untouched, and the only1, person
who could have borne him a grudge is said
to be out of thes country. Immediately on
the receipt of the sad news,the chief of the
detective police went to CHatillon for thc
purposu of beginning an inquiry iuM the af
fair. The body of the General was; placed
in a room on the ground floor above the
place where it was discovered, and vyill, in
all likelihood, be brought to Paris to day..
The reasons of the suicide, if such it is, are
still shrouded m mystery.; General ey, j
who commanued a brigade! of Curirassiers
in the army of Paris, was only forty-six
years oi age. lie was extremely weattny
and thoroughly enjoyed life, nor had he j
ever known a care, except thc transient an
noyance caused by the trial to which I have
already referred. The Due d' Elchirgin

D. Z. Evans descrfbes in the Raral Home
the following good method of pruning and
training the vine: " ; '- .
-As the method or plan of training the
vine has much to do with the Jwny it is
pruned or trimed, I will say our style is a
modified Fuller process. We, the firsf year,
run up one cane; the second year run up
twot which in the Full we cut back to two
or three eyes each above the surface of the
soil. The following season we let only two
canes grow, fruiting them this year. : Ve

year or the early Spring followingfcwhen we

year ac now made to act as arms,thus
they heing wound around and tied to the
lower wire. We now let all the shoots grow,
pinching back every other one to the sec
ond wire. In the Fall the longest ones, or
those permitted to grow unchecked, are cut
back to within two eyes of the arm, and the
others permitted to grow unchecked the
following season as far as the top of the
One cane is also permitted to grow from
each cane which was cut back, these being
for the fruiting canes the following tear
the others being cut back in thc Fall to two
eyes, the same as the other canes the pro
ceeding Fall. If the vine be very short
jointed we have found that fruiting canes
from every other eye was too much of a drain
on the vine, especially with young vines,
and we then use only every third eye; or to
make it more plain, we trv to leave from 4
to G inches space between thc fruitingcanes,
A.lKHit every fourth or fifth year we have
found it a good plan to renew thc arms
whiclt; is readily done by permitting a young
shoot to grow near the base of the vine on
each side for one or two seasons before it is
wanted, when thc old arm is cut away and
the young one substituted."
; Ax Extensive Farming Enterprise.
A correspondent ot a western newspaper de
scribes a farm near Fargo, Dakota, embrac
ing about 100,000 acres, owned by half a
dozen capitalists. It is divided into sec
tions of 20,000 aeres, each section having a
superintendent and assistants, and being
managed with'thc most exact system. All
the latest improvements in farming have
been introduced, including the telegraph
and telephone coannnnieating with differ
ent parts of the vast area.
Last year 13,000 acres of wheat were
planted and harvested, and tins year
20,000 acres were planted. The yield has
been 23 bushels to the acre, bringing $1 per
bushel, two thirds of which is net profit
The chief superintendent has been shipping
East by way of Duluth 20" car loads of wheat
daily. lie expects to have in due time 40,
000 acres under cultivation, and to bring his
annual production up to a round 1,000,000
bushels. There arc many cultivated farms
in the territory o 1000 to 2000 acres, and
Dakota promises to be one of the greatest
wheat producing regions in the entire West.

The other night Drs. Snort and Bil

their meeting was accidental. ?

Dr. Bilkins; "a boy nineteen years of

"No ; nor there wasn't that jealousy
existing between doctors that you find
now. It's all right to talk about en

After talking until the fire had
burned out, the two friends retired.
'Speaking about young doctors," said
Dr. Snort, "I have always held that
the best physician is be who has the
age. It is all practice any way, and 1

more reliable thjn one forty-five years
old." f .
"Yes," said Bilkins, but after they
pass fifty it doesn't make much differ

doctor is taturally more reliable
than one fifty years old."
"Now, here," said Bilkins, "you say
that just because I am fifty and you
are about fifty-five "
"No, I didn't think of the difference
in our ages. However, in our case it

"Sleep, the duce," said Bilkins,
turning over. "Stir a man up and
then tell him to go to sleep ! I want
you to understand that I stand higher
as a physician than you do."
"No use to talk that way when you
know that I can doctor the socks off
aThat?s the trouble. You can doc
tor the socks off anybody. I suppose
you are not aware that Busley tells it
all around the neigborhood that yon
killed his wife."
"See here," snarled Snort, "you are
getting too infernal insolent for an
old man. I never intended to say
anything about it, but I know one
thing concerning your medical career
that is a blot on the profession. You

Then they grappled and began a
mouth-to-niouth engagement. They
roiled out of bed, got up, braced,
grappled and fell again. Finally the
night porter broke open the door,
rushed in and litlhe gas. Dr. Snort
stood in one corner of the room, hold

Killing: .Ills Daughter

told his daughter that if she did
not split as many rails ashe did in

A Hen's "Brood" of Dogs. A
friend of mine has a female greyhound
and litter of young ones. Now that
is nothing cxtrordinary, but that she
should be assisted in her maternal du
ties by an old hen is, I think, a very
unusual thing. In the kennel with
her is a hen, which has taken to tho
dogs in a most affectionate way, sitting
in the corner with two or three of
them constantly under her wing; and
what is still more extraordinary they
know her call, for if they stay away
she cackles and they come back. At
present her adopted children are
young ; whether she is only to take
them for the month nobodv knows.
but L fear when they are old enough
to accompany her about the fields she
will find it difficult to make them
partake of the delicacies sho may be
able to scratch out of thc earth for
them, which would no doubt be much
appreciated by her own young. At
all events, the case is a curious one.
