POISOH III THE ASHES
What the Mt. Lebanon Shakei-s

The" Mount Ll.ar.on (New

I Nervous Dyspepsia is a com-

1 out of the conditions of modern
life. It is a joint aftVction of
the digestive organs and of the
nervous system. These two
were formerly treated as sepa
' rate ailments, and it was left
' for-the cleai'-sighted Shakera
to prove that the basis of this
terrible and often fat.d compli
i cation lies chiefly in tin dUord

di' stiou and nutrition. They

Knowing the infallible power
of Shaker Extract (Seigel's

country in the worl i rre there
so many in-an n-yiums tilled

from this alanuing disease. Its
leading r-ynijtoirs are these :
Frequent ov continual head
ache; a dull pain At the ba.se

Short Talks Willi Firnitri on Farm
nAR VESTING OAT.s.
The dry spring has made, oats
very low, and difficult to cradle
and save. The recent rains may
develop good heads, and these,
being the most important part, it ia
very desirable to seenre them.
Where the land is smooth and free
from trash, the oats may be mowed
like grass, raked np with hors
rake and cared like hay, withent
being tied in bandies. This is, in
deed, a very excellent plan. Con
sidering the decrease in cot of
harvesting, the mowing machine
and horse rake taking the place oi
ci ftdler and binder, we are rather
Inclined to think it is the best
mode of harvesting oats, eyea
when tall enough for the cradler.
If the weather is good they will
enre qaickly, and do not run the
risk ot moulding under the band.
Cut one day, they can be honied
the next, and that is a very great
Bat where trash U in the way,
or one does not own a mower, low
oats can be saved very satisfacto
rily with what is sometimes called
the 15 fingered cradle. At first
made with wire but now much im
proved with wooden fingers, they
do excellent work. We are now
having some oats, scarcely u foot
high, cut with these cradles, and
in a motit satisfactory manner.
Two conditions shonld be observed
cut before fully ripe, and keep
blade very sharp, that the cradler
may make his cut without a lunge.
A lunge will scatter and throw off
the short heads. Catting before
dead ripe makes better forage, and
quite as good grain for feed, if not
quite so good for seed. The straw
is too short to tie in bandies, to do
so would be too troublesome and
much would be lost. The hand
fnlls are simply gathered np as in
tieing and loaded at once in a
wagon. It behooves the farmer to
save his oats, and whenever he
can, to save labor too. The change
from slave to free labor has im
posed new conditions on us and
we must adapt ourselves to them.
Machinery must take the place of
moor on rne larm, as wen as in tne
Aside from the saviDg of oats
that are low and thin, it is better
to cut them just as they begin
fairly to turn. The plant has then
reached its maximum development.
It will gain nothing from soil or air
by remaining uncut longer, and the
straw will make decidedly better
forage when cut at that stage.
Such oats, well cured and fed in
the sheaf, supplemented by a little
corn, is unsurpassed horse-feed.
But they should be fed sparingly
j when first harvested. They then
possess a laxative power, and in
I dace excessive perspiration. A
couple of months' caring will re
I move these objectionable qualities.
What has been said about the
j harvesting of oats applies equally
j to that of wheat. It may be cat
' w ith mower and gathered with
rake. In this shape it is not quite
so convenient to thresh, but it can
be run through thresher, as every
, uue miu s, irom caving seen ine
loose wheat from broken bundles
threshed. On a cotton faxm, har
vesciDg grain comes in at a very
busy time, and it is quite a disturb
ing affair. These quick expeditious
methods may afford some relief.
They are certainly worthy of atten
tion and examination. W. L. .!.,

to recollect whether it would be
etiquette to catch the parasol of a

parasol in the midst of its gyra

mountain vanish in the sea which
was boiling like a caldron, and
shortly after, feix little, tiery islands
arise farther out, while boat loads
ot escaping people uttered wild
screams, ami were gone lor

Never would those muttering be

They adored his luemor . .Iway.i. j
Later a prince, who was already ,
very ill, gave up the remnant ol )
his life to satisfy the angry gods.
But now ah! there were none who
would do it: none. The royal peij
souages had gone to keep tliemj
selves sale, if possible, at a long
distance from Honolulu, under the
protection of some Kuropean
friends: and what the gods chose
must happen. Tlwy offered them
everything else they could think of,
but the creatures were ruthless.

but never noticed the fruits, or the
young arMtnals, or the jewels heap

took them back, and waited
Toe royalty to come home and be
killed for the sake of its people.
Itoyahy remained absent; the
gods grumbled. Perhaps they felt
that these people would have been
only too glad to offer them what
they asked for. and gave time, as
generous creditois do when they
feel that their debtors would pay il
Still, patience docs not endure

A crowd gathered without the

and children, of old people and
young, all waiting lor that which
the gods would send, and all as

They besought the gods as earnest

Her dress was that of one who
had means sufficient. Her life was
plainly not empty ol delight. She
had rings of gold in her ears, and a
belt with gems m it about her
waist. A young man followed her,
imploring her, with tears to turn
back, but she kept on her way
unil she stood in the midst of the
crowd, aud commanding silence by
a wave of h.-r hand, then addressed

efficacy of her voluntary death.

The annual Congrens of German
Physit ian met this year, in April,
at Wiesbaden. Many distin
guished medical men were present.
One of tho subjects discussed was
pulmonary consumption, and the
general opinion was that no real
remedy had been discovered as yet,
and that existing methods of treat
ment were only palliative. The
question whether rest or exercise is
to be recommended for patients
suffering from diseases of the heart
was also debated. Dr. Leyden, the
president of the Congress, insisted
that many practitioners are too
anxious concerning the safety of
such patients, and referred to the
statement of Sir Andrew Calrk, the
eminent English doctor, that he
had seen six hundred cases ol heart
disease without any bad symptoms
for live vears.

A Confederate Opinion r Grant!
from the C'enwry war papers for
dune we quote the following:
When General Grant was appoint
ed to t he command of the I'nion
armies and established his head
quarters with the Army of the
Potomac, w e of the Army of North
ern Virginia knew very little about
his character aud capacity as a
; commander. Even 'old army'
officers, who were supposed to
! know all about anyone who had
been iu the army before the
war. seemed to know as little as
any body else. The opinion was
pretty freely expressed, however,
that his Western laurels would
wither in the climate of Virginia.
His name was associated with
Shiloh, where it was believed that
he had been outgeneraled and bad
ly beaten by Albert Sidney John
scon, aud saved by Bnell. The
capture of Vicksbnrgand the battle
of Chattanooga, which gave him a
brilliant reputation at the North,
were believed by the Confederates
to be due more to the weakness of
the forces opposed to him and the
bad generalship of their command
ers than to any great ability on his
part. That he was bold and ag
gressive, we all knew, but we
believed that it was the boldness
and aggressiveness that arises from
the consciousness oi strength, as he
had generally managed to fight his
battles with the advantage of large
ly superior numbers. That this
policy of force would be pursued
when he took command in Vir
ginia, we had no doubt; but we
were not prepared for the unpar
alleled stubbornness and tenacity
with which he persisted in Ins
attacks under the fearful losses
which this army sustained at the
Wilderness and at Spotsylvania.
General Grant's method of con
ducting the campaign was frequent
ly discussed among the Confeder
ates, and the universal verdict was
that he was no strategist and that
he relied almost entirely upon the
brnte force of numbers for success.
Such a policy is not characteristic
of a high order of generalship, and
seldom wins unless the odds are
overwhelmingly on the side of the
assailant. Jc failed in this in
stance, as shown by the result at
Cold Harbor, which necessitated
an entire change in the plan of
campaign. What a part at least of
his own men thought about General
Grant's methods was shown by the
fact that many of the prisoners
taken during the campaign com
plained bitterly of the 'useless
butchery ' to which they were sub
jected, some going so far as to
prophesy the destruction of their
army, 'He fights!' was the pithy
reply of President Lincoln to a
deputation of influential politicians
who urged his removal lrom the
command of the army. These two
words embody perfectly the Con
federate idea of Qeneral Grant at
that time. If, as the media-val
chroniclers tell us, Charles Martel
(the Hammer) gained that title by
a seven days' continuous battle
with the Saracens at Tours, Gen
eral Grant certainly entitled him
self to a like distinction by bis
thirty days' campaign from the
Wilderness to Cold Harbor."

From an illustrated description
from the Wilderness tojCokl Harbor,
in the June Century, we quote as
follows: "Geueral Lee held so
completely the admiration and con
tidence of his conduct of a cam
paign was rarely criticised. Few
points present themselves in his
campaign from the Wilderness to
Cold Harbor upon which criticism
can lay hold, when all the circum
stances are considered. His plan
of striking the dank of Grant's army i
as it passed through the Wilderness ,
is above criticism. Fault can be ,
found only with its execution. The1
two division of Longstreet at Gor
donsville, and Anderson's division
of HilP s corps left on the Upper :
Rapidan, were too widely separated
from the rest of the army, and, as
the event proved, should have been
in supporting distance of A. P.Hill
on the Orange Plank road on the
afternoon of the 5th of May. That
he did not strike Grant adamagiug
blow when he had him at such dis
advantage on the North Anna may
seem strange to those who had
witnessed his bold aggresssiveness
at the Wilderness and on other
fields. He was ill and confined to
his tent at the time; but, as show
ing his purpose had he been able
to keep the saddle, he was heard to
say, as he lay prostrated by sick
ness, 'We must strike them a blow;
we must never let tuem pass us
again.' Whatever General Lee did,
his men thought it the best that
could be doue. under the circum- j
stances. Their feeling towards him i
is well illustrated by the remark of'
a 'ragged rebel' who took off his j
hat to the general as he was pass
ing and recieved a like courteous l
salute in return. 'God bless Marse j
Robert! I wish ho was emperoir of j
