When William moved into Lafayette
place Mrs. Lmgdon took up her resi
dence in the vicinity, comer La
fayette place, and her house was the
scene of the Astor place riot. The As
tor library was established next door to
William's house, and this made it a
family centre. When William's two
pons, John Jacob and William, married,
they formed a new coloay h Fifth ave
nue, taking up an entire square, and
their father followed them, occu
pying a house on an adjacent corner.
The family have thus kept together and
have lived peaceably. Indeed, it is one
of the few instances in which wealth
has not led to variance. The Astot
name is now given to the Astor house,
the Astor library. Astor place, and the
Astor block in Fifth avenue.
There is abo an Afctorhrusc at Wal

worthy poor and is a very useful msti

prettiest towns of Long Island, was for
merly John Jacob's summer resort, and
thus deserves the name. Ho made his
will which is dated Hell Gate, July 4,
1835, twelve years before his death. Ho
added a number of important codicils,
one of which, made in 1839, provided
for the erection of the Astor library. Ho
gave the land, and also $400,000, to
which the family have added somo very

' Te ailing for Ma Bel.
On the subject of rearing colts the
Rural World has an item that those who
rear calves, pigs, and Iambs may well
notice: The breeder, who is raising
colts either for trotting or running
should not depend upon Indian corn for
the grain food, for while it is rich in
fat-making material it is poor
in muscle matter. For young
colts, even after weaning, noth
ing is better that skim milk, and
such breeders as can commaud it have
a great advantage over those without it.
Then vihorts, bran, oats, pea meal, and
clover, all having a good deal of pro
tein, furnish excellent muscle-making
food. To givo strength, elasticity and
power the right kind of food is indis
pensable, and breeders should not over
look this important requisite to success.
Be careful to make a judicious selection
of food when a choice h possible.
The onion does best on a well-drained,
friable muck. Manure fertilizers are
usually necessary. Well rotted barn
yard manure answers well on dry land,
but phosphates are best on mucky soils.
If the latter fertilizer is used, the aim
should be to get the good of it the first
season as that remaining during the Fall
will partly leach out by the rains. The
ground must be in good shape. Drill
the phosphates in rows 14 inches apart,
and follow in the same mark with the
seed drill. For large onions, thin to
from three to live inches in the row.
About four lbs. of seed per acre are re
quired. Iu harvesting, pull four rows,
throwing the topi one way, and four
more rows with the tops the other way
so that the bulbs will be together form
ing a windrow. Onions are best pre
served if kept juit above the freezing
point. A loft is a good place in this
climate. My p'an of culture is to hoe
and weed thoroughly, as soon as they
are up, and repeat iu two weeks, thin
ning them out at the same operation.
Only one more hoeing and weeding is
usually needed. Prairie Farmer.
Why We Salt the C .-Lie.
Halt! Every live farmer knows his
cattle do better when a libera! supply of
this article is kept before them; but
who can tell why? The Kural Canadian
I thus explains:
As soon as food enters the stomach
the natural tendency is at once for fer
mentation to bcirin, and there arises a
results will follow, the food will be di-
gptcd, and salt will not be needed,
though at any time salt assists in the pro
cess of digestion. Salt keeps fruit from
decaying until it cau be digested, and
assimilated, and prolongs the time to
much advantage. Further, salt is pre
ventive of worms. When fermentation
sets in, the conditions presented are
favorable to the existence of worms ia
the intestinal canal1', and may possibly
be engendered by the process.
A :U an Poultry Uoufte.
Cleanliness in the poultry house is one
of the most essential points iu successful
poulty raising. A large majority of the
diseases to which the feathered race is
subject, may he traced directly to a tillhy,
disordered condition of the poultry
house. Filth is the boon companion of
ice, and where one is seen the other is
sure to be present, and it naturally fol
lows that when tiUh is rigidly avoided
little trouble is encountered with lice.
It is on excellent plan to take a small
pail of diiutcd carbonic acid, and ro
through the hen house occasionally,
scattering this eradicator of vermin
everywhere, in the nests, on the floor,
over the walls and p-rches, and in fact
in every place frequented by the fowls.
Not only will this have a most desirable
cleansing effect, but it will also tend to
purify the atmosphere and exterminate
the germs of disease which may invade
There is nothing, absolutely nothing,
of more importance to the health and
comfort of the fowls than cleanliness.
The food may be ample and the sur
roundings all that could be desired, but
the presence of dirt and filth is a fore
runner of disease and death, and
consequently should be strictly avoid
ed. Every poultry man should give his
poultry house a thorough whitewashing
at least twice a year. By this I do not
mean a daub here and a daub there, but
a good thorough whitewashing. Don't
show any partiality in the work. Fill
every crack and corner, and if the first
tiraa don't make it jwrfect, give it a
second coat. In preparing the wash, if
possible secure fresh lime, and it is a
good plan to put an ounce or two of
pure carbolic acid into each pailful used.
A handful of powdered sulphur may
also be thrown in, although it is not
During the eummer months the litter
that collects in the hen house should b.

Making St! aw Into Manure.
It is alway best to me enough straw
or other absorbent to prevent waste !
cither the solid or liquid droppings ol
stock. And it h very doubtful whelh i
it ever pays to use more than this,
huge 6traw stack worked into, the ma
cure pile makc3 a big but delusive
eLow. It is. in fact, ho big a iile that
in spring it cannot all be drawn on tho
fields in time for plowing, and is there
fore left to rot down in the barn yard.
By this the bulk is reduced, but gener
ally also with moro loss of plant food
than the straw itself furnishes. Thus by
trying to me all his straw the farmer is
obliged tc wait a year before he can get
the manure on his land, and then apply
less in value than if he had used the
straw otherwise or sold it for what it
would bring. Its market value, where
there is a market, is greater than its
marurial value, even could it be hauled
on the land for nothing.
These facts explain ono of the reasons
why continued grain growing is so ex
haustive to soil. The farmer who grows
much grain seldom keeps much stock,
or if ho does he is apt to try to use it to
eat up his superabundant supplies of
straw. Either of these plans tend to
soil exhaustion. With no stock there
is, of course, no manure. Feeding on
straw makes manure so poor that it has
to be diminished in bulk before it is
worth drawing away. The use of con
centrated commercial fertilizers has
taught farmers some valuable lessons
with regard to the relation between
bulk and value in manure. It is in
places where grain has been sold, and
the land fed with straw for years, that
these chemicals are most in demand.
With this hint before them, ought not

somewhat more concentrated than they
have of late years been in the habit of
doing?-- Boston Cultivator.

plenty of corn the average farmer is con-'

Some good judge of both human and
horse nature say3 that the walk of a
horse is greatly i fluenced by the driver
or attendant. On the farm, if you put
a horse into the care of a slow, idle man,
you will soon find that the horse ac
quires a snail's pace of the man. If this
is continued some time it is a practice
most difficult to eradicate In addition
to -this, the slow trailing gait is really
harder work for the horse. A moderate
quick walk, either when under a load or
when empty, exhausts the animal less
than the snail's pace.
Professor T. B. Arnold is quoted by
the N. Y. Tribune as having a "con
viction that the annual product of the
cows of the country is 40 per cent, be
low what it would be under a system of
fair and constant rations all of the year
around, including periods of summer
drouth and comfortable housing against
pinching cold." We would put this at
50 per c?nt. Our cows are now giving
more rnilk than they did last year
iu July. They had no extra feed then
and were poorly milk-.-d. Now we take
a hand and they have had extra food all
of the season. They look well and are

Heading Character From Mcn'g Ears.
In a late newspaper interview In
spector Byrnes of New York gives a re
porter some interesting facts about
reading character from the surface signs
n the human face. The keen inspector

:hat the general character of the head

svith the character of a man. A person

le may be short and "chubby," or he
nay be anywhere between; lie may be
jlondc or dark ; he may wear a number
iix or a number eight hat ; he may have
i full or retreating forehead ; his eyes
nay be sunken or protruding, large or
imall, and yet the inspector thinks no
ne can tell with any degree of
icrtainty from his looks whether he be
i saint or a sinner.
After going all through the list of
physiognomical traits Mr. Byrnes comes
lown to business, and says he never
iaw n smart man, either in crime or in
business, who had largo flabby ears that

ne who is first to enter crime and the
irst to confess when arrested. He
brags aud blows and blusters, and then
"peters out" without doing anything.

A CURIOUS DISCO TEST.
The Sensation Created by a Japanese
A young Japanese peasant woman has
created a genuine sensation in the medical
circles of the east with a new theory and
cure of rheumatism.
Her theory is that it is caused by a small
insect under the skin, that gnaws and bites
the muscles and thus causes the twinges of
pain and the untold misery of that ailment.
A grizzled and skeptical sea captain placed
himself under her cafe and, after foot baths
of bran and hot rice brandy, she nipped
from his knees small white insects by the
The regular practitioners were skeptical
about this new theory, and put one of the
insects under a microscope. They decided
that by its organism it never could have livel
under the surface of the skin. .
The Captain insists, however, . that tha
Japanese woman has taken the insects front
his knees and ankles by the hundreds, in his
sight, and killed them, and that he grows
better after each treatment !
This theory.absurd ss it seems, is really not
much more so than the theories formerly
held by the medical fraternity. It used to be
thought a trouble of the joints, and was
treated as such until it was demonstrated that
the treatment brought no lasting results.
Then, as the muscles were affected, it was
set down as a muscular disease; but the same
unsatisfactory results followed. Now it is
universally acknowledged to be a "fiery con
dition of the blood caused by the presence of
uric acid in the system"
To cure it the uric acid must be driven out
of the blood, which is done by putting the
kidneys in a healthy condition with Warner's
safe cure, and "putting out the fire in the
blood" by Warner's safe rheumatic cure.
These remedies, talon in alternation, as they
should be, drive out the uric acid already in
the blood and prevent further accumulation.
James Wright, of 37 E. 19th st. New York,
was for many years a victim of rheumatism
and tried various remedies and cures with
out avail. Sept. 8, 1887, he writes in praise
of the remedies named: "I am now free
from the arrow stings of the dreaded inflam
matory rheumatism. I have and always
will recommend Warner's rheumatic reme
dies to all sufferers of the disease."
The Japanese peasant womm's theory will
not be likely to stand the test of time and
scientific investigation but the thousands of
cures made by the remedies mentioned above
prove their merit beyond all question.
