What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
BOOKS ASH MAOAZINKS ...... The March nuinbor of The Ladies Homo Journal opens with a fascinat ing story by the lato Eugene Field— “The Werewolf.” It is explained by tho editor that “The Werewolf” is tho only mnnuscript by tho lamented poet and story-writer-that has not been published, and thut it was written and re-written oight times by the author before it exactly met his approval. It is probably ono of tho best of all Mr. Field’s writings. Howard Pyle has illustrated tho story admirably. Charles Scribner's Sons state that every copy of ouo huudred sots on Japan paper of tho “Sabine Editiou” of tho writings in prose nnd vorse of Eugene Fiold was taken up by sub scribers before a page of tho editiou was put to«pres8. Tho sot will in clude several new books. The first volume will coutniu a memoir of tho author by his ’brother, Boswell M. Field, and introductions will profuco othor volumes by Richnrd Henry Stoddard, Edward • Everott Hale, Francis Wilson, J. Whitcomb Riley and others. Tho volume will bo printed by Do Vinno from now plntos on donblo-odged paper containing, iu water mark, Mr. Field’s initials on every pago. The cover of tho March number of The Cosmopolitan boars n s trin g colored pieturo by Eric Pape repre senting “The Vision of St. John.” The frontispiece ulso is an attractive colored plute--\At Twilight,” by Albert E. Stcruer. Tho lidding con tribution is a story by Harriet Pres cott Spaflord entitled “Tho God mothers,” with illustrations by Van Schaick. C. S. RfflWfiHW. Toaspcrn, Eric Pupe, nnd W. Granville-Smith. Probably tho most interesting contri bution of tho 'itsuo is a character study of Gen. Grant by Adam Ba- doau, entitled “The Mystery of Grant,” in which Gen. Badcnu shows that tho contrasts in Gen. Grant’* character aud tho vicissitudes in hi* career nro among the most surprising in history. Tho paper is freely illus- ' (rated with portraits of Gen. Grant nnd group pictures of tho General and his staff during the war. In McClure’s Magazine for March is brought to light .a speech of 1837 by Abraham Liucoln, which the biographers until now, seemingly, have kno-rn nothing of, though it contaiuB passages still of-the highest iuterest. For example, of politicians, Lincoln says: “A sot of men who have interests nsido from tho osts of tho peoplo, aud who. to say the most of them, are, taken mass, at least ouo long stop removed from honest men. I say this with the greator freedom, because, being a politician mysolf, i ,s porsoual.” ABOUT FURS AND HIDES. The Wav Fisher, foxes, lynx, marten,, mink, oppossum, ottor nnd skunk, must lie “cased,\ that i«. not cut opeii. skinning cut at the rump nnd the skiu inside out (like u glove) the laxly of tho anitnnl, leaving tho pelt inside out. Strape clean, put u thin Iraard i:i side the skin,, cut the natural shape of it, stretching the skiu to its full est extent; but not so much ns to make tho fur thin. Too much stretching spreads tho fur over a largo surface and makes it thin and lacking in richness. Remove board when partly dry. Never use bent sticks, bows or anything in shape that yields. Muskrats must bo “cased,\ but with fur aide iu. Chop off Hit* tails. Skin ut the tail and neck rumps square. Muskrat skinned from tli nose, rumps rouudod witli a lx>v have loss value and do uot sell wel Muskrats must uot bo injured b shooting or spoariug; trap them. Badger, bear, beaver, cals, raccooi wolves, wolvorioo should bo “ open,” that is, cut open, up tho belly from the rump to the head. After scrap ing, clonniDg and dryiDg, strotch uniformly oblong shape, but not s much as to make tho fur ‘bin. When thoroughly dry trim off legs, shanks, flippers, und > uuy litllo pieces Hint spoil oppearauce of the skiu. Beaver are sometimes stretched ut most round, but appoar very much better stretched oblong. Value by the skiu uover by tho pouud. They rapidly lose in woight. Thoy bring most sold by tho skiu. Trap furs, spearing tears the pelt, and shpves off the fur. Both do so j rious injury aud losson tho soiling price. Do not dire with alum or salt. It | injuros them for dressing aud spoils | their sale. Do'uot dry skius at a Fire | or in the sun, or in smoke. It often “ burns” them and makes them more liable to spoil or ruin on being dressed. Dry iu tho opeu air where shady. Meaty skius ofteu “ burn”. Tho moat and fat on them hoats aud “burna” them, nnd >hey then go to pieces,aud rot; 11 boiug dressed. Too much vCarmth curia und spoils the top fur or hair. Never stuff furs of any kind; dry and stretch as explain ed. Do not stretch out the nose und mako it pointod. It gives a southern appearance aud lessens value. Do mutilate in uuy way. It losseus value and injures saio. Remove as much of bono from tail on possible, otbor- ise the tail rots. Skuuk with tho whito stripo shaved it or uuy portion cut out, blackoned or tampered with, must bo bought at half price. Fur-bearing animals must uot be killed till they have at least a fair growth of fur. Stop trapping as in early spring as tho fur begins to shod'or become thin or a little faded.' J as .

A mysterious disease which has attacked many orange trees in Flori da bus been discovered to lie indiges tion. The Department of Agricul ture iu its \Vear Book\ pays special atteutiou to dyspeptic oranges nnd doscribcs tho disease und ita cure, can so is the sbuio us thut which often brings on dyspepsia in human beings—overfeeding.

Tho tips turn up aud shape themselves iuto S-liko curves. Tho fruit turns a lemon yellow color be fore it is half ripe nnd has a very thick rind. As it ripens tho fruit splits opeu und becomes worthless. Tho reddish-brown resin gets on tho fruit before it is ripe und renders it unsalable. Most of the diseases of tho orange trees aro duo to lack of cultivation, uud it was thought that a tie? would ike more nutriment ■-Jjimi tho soil thau it required. This is nr' for tho tree takes up fill it can get and then, like u small boy who'll as eaten too much plum pudding, be comes sick. Tho dark green color vbich the foilngo then assumes is •cry handsome, but it means oranges, or at least none that is good.
