"Disappointment His appointment, "
Change one letter,' then I see
That the thwarting of my purpose
Is God's better choice for me.
His appointment must be blessing,
Though it may come in disguise,
For the end from the beginning
Open to his wisdom lies.
"Disappointment His appointment ;"
Whose? The Lord's who loves me
Understands and knows me full?,
Who my faith and love would test.
For, like loving earthly parents,
He rejoices. when he knows
That his child accepts unquestioned
, All that from his wisdom flows.
"Disappointment His appointment;"
Change the letters, men, dear inena,
Take in cheerful acquiescence
All thy Father's love may send;
Soon will faith be lost in Vision,
Then in glory thou shalt see
"His appointment," and that only. .

NOTES ON MUSKMELONS.
Their Cnlture Very Popular A -Number
of FresU Fact Aboat Them.
Professor R William Rane of New
Hampshire, who has carried on consid
erable experimental work with musk
melons at the state station,1 says In a
recent report that next to the straw
berry there lias been no garden crop In
which the public has shown more In
terest.! Among other valuable points
from his experience Professor Rane
notes the following: -
Among the interesting things; found
out In studying the muskmelon U that,
while we have considered this fruit to
be moncDcious, generally speaking, I
find It is perfect. Out of 03 varieties
examined the pistillate, or f emaib o'los
soms, contained stamens and pollen In
83. The remaining ten to all" appear
ances -were monoecious.
Upon consultation of the literature
upon the subject as far as I was able
to go the fact is not recognized. Gray's
"Manual of Botany" says, "The flow
ers are diceclous or monoecious."
riadtlng and transplanting were
made out of doors, on June 1, the hllla
being similarly prepared. The trans
planted plants were obtained by start
ing the seed in thumb pots and then
transplanting into a four Inch pot, from
these hardening off . In a cold frame,
then transplanting. The transplanted
hills were earlier and up to SeptJS
were In advance from point of yleld.
Subsequently," however, the planted
hlUs outylelded. The experiment. In
point of earllnees shows but compara
tively few fruits, but ten days in the
extreme of cases and but a few days
IH the majority in favor of transplant
ed plants. .
As to "pinched" versus "unpinched"
vines, the conclusion points to but lit
tle if any gain from pinching or "head
ing in" . the muskmelon when grown
out of doors.
The hills were thinned to three plants
each on July 12. Cultivation was kept
up at frequent intervals until the
plants covered the ground. During ex
tremely dry times the melons were ir
rigated from the main college water
system. Not much was gained, how
ever, as a neighboring plot, under simi
lar conditions, but without water, was
equally productive. The melon appears
able to withstand, drought as well as
almost any garden crop.
The striped squash beetle was very
numerous and troublesome. "We found.
however, that old slaked lime and
gypsum were equally as valuable as
tobacco dust in keeping them away.
When they were very thick, the young
plants were completely dusted or coat
ed with these substances. Even when
tobacco dust Is used It is necessary to
watch the young plants closely and
repeat the application whenever neces
sary. This trouble, however, does not
last long, but for a week or so, until
the plants get a few true leaves, It
must be attended to. -
The Onion Thrlpa.
Tho effect of the thrlps on the onion
is known as the "white blast," from
the fact that the tops are prematurely
whitened and become wrinkled and
shriveled. Onion growers are familiar
with the fact that the depredations of
this Insect appearSarllest and are" the
most emphasized along the margins of
fields or plots or in spots over the
fields. The reason for this is that the
insect winters over in these places. It
makes its way from the grassy mar
gins or from the grassy banks of ditch
es to the rows of onions adjoining. It
Winters over In the piles of culled on
ions and refuse in the fields and begins
Its work there, spreading from thence
outward. Wherever the grass and
weeds along ditches can be rooted up
and destroyed it prevents the harbor
ing of this pest Wherever the old, dry
grasses and weeds along the margins
of onion plantations can be burned the
effect will be to destroy myriads of the
pest and to prevent their breeding the
coming season. With frequent drench
ing rains there Is not much likelihood
of a severe outbreak,, but In case of
drought the lnseet is likely to work
more or less serious Injury In the ex
tensive onion fields of Ohio, says a
bulletin of the state station, which rec
ommends the following remedy:
A spray of one pound of whale oil
soap dissolved In eight gallons of wa
ter will destroy the pest and the use of
this mixture is recommended on the
first appearance of the insects In- the
fields. At time of first appearance it
will probably- only 4be necessary to
treat very small areas along the mar
gins of fields or the small Isolated spots
previously mentioned In order to per
manently check their Increase.
The Cowpea In the North.
A good thing is injured and brought
into disrepute by too zealous advo
cates. The cowpea is one of the most
valuable plants that have been brought
Into public notice for a good inany
years, but there Is a northern limit to
its region of growth beyond which It
is not profitable to grow It Because a
single grower in Wisconsin has obtain
ed some growth on the cowpea is no
sign that it will do to grow generally
In that state. In fact, it has been found
that as far north as the northern part
of Illinois the season is too short to.
permit the cowpea to obtain a growth
that will make it even serviceable for
plowing under, much less for the mak
ing of hay.
The seed must always be purchased
In the south If good results aro to be
expected. The plant seems to be a
natural ally of red clover, and the two
; plants overlap each other from the re
gions where each does best Farm,

War Department Officials Refuse
to Discuss the Contents of
Cbaffee and the United States Porces Are
Marching on Pekln With the Japa
nese and British The Chinese
Sparring for Time.
Bv Telegraph to the Morning Star
Washington, August 4. Some fea
tures of the dispatch received from
General Chaffee yesterday and which
the War Department refused to make
public, became known to-day. The
first dispatch received by the War De
partment from General Chaffee con
tained very little information, but
dosed with the statement that he was
going to Tien Tsin and would give hia
views. Th at is what he has done. His
views as cabled in the dispatch of ves-
terday would be far from palatable to
several foreign governments and that
is one reason why the dispatch was
not made public. This much Is as
serted. General Chaffee and the United
States forces available under his com
mand have gone forward towards
Pekin with the British. and Japanese
forces. The troops of the other nations
assembled at Tien Tsin did not join in
the movement, but the reasons given
by General Chaffee could not be
War Department officials generally
refuse to discuss the contents of the
dispatch and Secretary Boot an
nounced emphatically that it would
not be given to the public, and further
that no additional dispatches had been
received from General Chaffee. The
international questions involved make
it impossible on account of diplomatic
relations to give the dispatch to the
public and it is further desired that
the proposed movement of troops
should not be heralded to the world
for the advantage of the Chinese
forces, which are opposing the ad
vance. Sparring for Time.
The steady prosecution of the mili
tary movements undoubtedly has
frightened the Chinese viceroys who
have been sparring for time, endeavor
ing to use the diplomatic corps at
Pekin as a protection. The Taun li
Yamen dispatch received this morn
ing through Yuan and Wu fairly
illustrated this condition and made
it plain that the imperial government
again is trying to force a suspension
of the advance on Pekin by menacing
the foreign ministers. Having for
mally refused to put them in comma
nication with their governments and
this having proved ineffectual to stop
the advance, it would not be surnris
ing if the Chinese government should!
do one of two things, either come for
ward with a threat to renew attack on
the legations if the advance is not
stopped or resort to the plan of deliv
enng the ministers safely at Tien Tsin,
or at least to the commanders of the
international column, trusting in that
way to abate the force of the invasion
and induce the powers to consent to
negotiations for a settlement 06- the
trouble. It is learned here that Viceroy
Li Hung Chane actuallv undertook to
do this, but sought to make the condi
tion lor the safe delivery of the minis
ters that the imperial government
should be held blameless for what had
occurred at Pekin.
This condition havincr been rejected
absolutely by the terms of President
McKmley's reply to the Chinese gov
ernment, it may be that Li is trying
to arrange for the delivery of the min
isters without conditions, trusting to
tne gratitude of the powers to secure
the desired absolution.'
Admiral Sevmour telesrranhed to the
admiralty to-day that he had seen the

landing of a force of 3,000 British for
the defence of Shanghai.
The viceroy returned the admiral's
visit the next day and renewed his
assurance of friendship. An agree

order in the Yangtse valley.

By Cable to the Morning Star.
Paris, August 4. To-day's inquiries
i-faave cleared the entire history of
Francois Salsonthe would be assassin
of the Shah of Persia. It seems that
Salson's army record was most exem
plary and that he was promoted for
soldierly qualities. After the death of
his father he resigned from the army
and began anew the roving life he had
During the inquiry Salson related
that he once made an effort to assas
sinate the former , president of the
French republic, M. Casimir-Perier.
He hid in the shrubbery beside the
road M. Casimir-Perier was accus
tomed to take in his daily walks and
when the latter passed, Salson said, he
attempted to shoot him with a pistol.
The weapon, however, missed fire and
no one perceived his presence. Sal
son's hatred of- the president, he as
serted, was due to the latter's laws
He admitted that he pulled the trig
ger of his pistol at the time of his at
tack upon the Shah, but in this case
again the weapon missed fire. Salson
explained that, hoping to ensure the
explosion of the cartridge, he had filed
the point of the hammer. This saved
the Shah's life, as the hammer had
been filed too much and the pulling of
the trigger only resulted in making a
small dent on the cartridge.
Salson's last employer states that he
was a model workman, that he never
discussed politics, but that one day he
astonished his companions by saying:
"Why should we work I Thus we en
rich others and gain only a livelihood.
Would it not be better to return to the
state of nature, when men lived happy
and idle on fruits and game?"
