A suggestion has been made
lately which seems not alto
gether unworthy of consider
ation, and which we remember
to have heard suggested isome
time ago by a verv practical
J time ago by a very
farmer: viz. that ar
i tary work on agric
introduced in our public
i s 'hools ; such a work as would
,r;,-p cOTn(i ;,ipa ,.f ri1(J, (iJfrrnf
Mve me idea oi nie umeient
kinds of soils, their composi
tion, etc., and what kinds of
fertilizers are best suited for
them, and what kinds ought
not to be used in certain soils.
This would require some
knowledge of chemistry, but
not more than could be given
in an elementary work on this
This knowledge, if it could
be made practical, would cer
tainly be of vast lenefit to
those who are to engage in
farming as their business. A
farmer frequently buys a
brand of fertilizer, and ap
plies it to a piece of land, and
is astonished to see no good
effect from it. The trouble
may not In in the fertilizer at
all, but si in pi v arises from the
j fact, that the chemicals con
tained in the fertilizer did not
suit the grade of land to which
It was applied. A simple
knowledge of Chemistrv would
! have prevented this mistake,
j The objet.ti0n that there are
no books suitable for this pur-
pose, would not oe a perma
nent one, for the very fact
that there was a demand for
them would stimulate those

The answer i;iven in last;
week's issue to the A and" 1 5 f
: problem is correct. An arith-1
met leal solution was asked)
tor, but our correspondent;
failed to state whether it was
worked by arithmetical rules '
or not- j
We have received two soAi-i
tions. by a gentleman of lirer-j
ary tastes, which we give as
follows: Divide the total
amount ($220) by the whole
number of acres (0,",) the qtio-
tient, 2 AVill be what
perare, and the remainder.
30, will be the number of acres I
H gets. This leaves 0.5 acres!
as A's r .umber. Again, it!
may be worked by subtract ing j
twice the number of acres-
from the total cost: the
win be 31), the mniTH
I rr t acrp H gets. All sim
I ilar problems may be worked
in the SUTlf W1 V
These solutions are very in
teresting, but they are aierelj
mechanical devices. Tf our
informant can give us an ex
planation f his prncc.-1. we
Aould be glad to have it.
The following problem has
been liandd us by a teacher:

The manuscript of a poem en:
titled "Lines to n Skeleton' was,
according to Rrvants Library of
Poetry and Song," first printed dur
ing the firet quarter of the present
century, and was saici to have been
found in Mie Museum of the Roval I
College of Surgeons in Ijoiidon near
a perfect human skeleton. It is
said to have been sent by the cura
tor to the Morning Chronicle for
publication. It exeitea so much
attention that every effort was made
to'discover the author, and a respon
sible party went so far us to offer ra
reward of fifty guineas for informa
tion that would discover its origiri.

There will be no change in the
name of the law firm of Rangs, Stet
son, Tracy &MacVeagh when G rover
Cleveland joins it, as be will do, as
told in yesterday's World. Mr.
Cleveland will be a "silent partner."
Thf present members of the firm
are Francis Lynde Stetson, Charles
W. Rang-s, Charles Edward Tracy,
Francis S. Rangs and Charles Mac
Veagh, with Wayne MacVeagh as
counsel. The firm named nsrtl to
lie Rangs & Stetson. Francis ti.
Hangs, the senior member, died in
1883. Francis S. Bangs is m,
and Charles W. Bangs is a nephew.
Charles MacVeagh is the son of
Wayne MacVeagh, who was attorney
general in Garfield's Cabinet when
James G. Blaine was secretary of
State, the relations between the two,
however, were not particularly cor
dial. It is a singular concider.ct
that Lyman K. Bass, a former jaw
partner ot Mr. Cleveland, was an in
timate friend of Mr. Blaine. In the
