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.

‘SUBSTANTIAL DREAM i i. Julian — was a lawyer without We. bad proposed for Aiice . but had no hope ad ‘tather would overigok his = One night while lying Aha Bett ot aetties a@ man came into room» who introduced himself as a lawyer from London and told Julian that bis uncle had died and left bim $500,000. “I must leave fu half an hour for New York,” he sald, “but you may ex- pect me in a week or so, aud then the necessary arrangements will be com- pleted for placing you in possession of your inheritance.” . With this the stranger vanished, and Julian Blair, as he raised himself on his elbow and looked about the room,’ asked himself whether he was awake or dreaming, A sudden drowelness overcame him, and when he again opened his are it was “WasMt a Gream?* he cried as he dressed himself, “No. It is impossible, “There is the chair the mansat in, 1 remember his features distinctly and every word he said and even the tone of his yoice. Thank , God, it was no vision! It wag a reality, Jullan found after making his toilet - that he was etill a little feverish, with a strange his head, but a glance at* the mirror showed that be was looking unusually well. One thing startled bim not a little in the course of the morning. After a brief interview with one of the bankers of the town be walked out on the street with $500 in bis pocket. A sudden doubt siruck him as he reached the sidewalk. lad he made a mistake in telling the banker of his good fortune? If the whole thing was only a dream, as he sometimes suspect- ed, he had done a very bad thing. “Pshaw,” he said to himself, “I am sick and nervous! How cau it be a dream?\ ; By degrees his confidence was re. stored, and later in the day, when he saw Mr. Howard, bis manner was well calculated to impress the millionalre. He told the story of bis legacy, and the rich man took bim by the hand and told bim that no man in the wide world would suit him better as a son- in-law. A week passed away delightfully. Blair found himself the lion of the town, but be spent most of his tcisure time with his xafflanced. One morning the young lawyer arose, cool and clear headed, without a trace of fever. He looked back upon the events of the past week In amazement. He no longer had any belief in the visit of the man from London. It was a dream and nothing else. “IT am in a disgraceful fix!\ he groaned. “I have lted to Mr. Howard and to Alice. I have borrowed money J under false pretenses. Nothing will ever conrince people that 1 am not a swindler,” : ~~ . . - . . . . The curd In Julfan’s hand bore the address. of flenry Morely, soMcttor, Middle Temple, London, and as the owner of the card was ushered Into the office the young lawyer looked at bim In blank It did not take long for Mr. Morely to state his business. “My young friend.” he said rather pompously, “it Is a genuine pleasure to me to be the bearer of good tidings. 1 have been two weeks iv the country looking you up. Your uncle, he left a large estate, and there is half a million for you.” “Is it another dream?\ whispered Julian. — “! don’t understand,” sald the Eng lishman, somewhat mystified. “Thisis no dream, It is business.” : Then be went on in his matter of fact way to make everything clear. “You have werer. Called on me be fore, have you?” asked Julian. “Certainly not,” replied the visitor. “I have just found you, and It was tio ensy watter, I can tell you.” “All of this Is very hard for me to believe,” replied Julian, “and It will take time to convince me of its real- ity. ao money ought to be tangible | enough,” said the lawyer. “If you feel like drawing for a few thousand now, I'll arrange it for you.” Such a proposition was not to be re- fused, and in the course of the day Julian had $10,000 to his cfedit in the bank. And then he broke down under the strain. For long weeks he lay either uncon- scious or delirious, and the watchers by his bedside wondered at bis talk. When he recovered, Julian, warned by the tricks his imagination had played him, lost no time in obtaining hid legacy and converting !t into sub- stantial investments. When this was done, he led sweet - Alice Howard to the altar. Once he said to her that he was in- Gebted to a dream for his greatest mis- ery and his happiness. This was all that he could be induced to say. He had passed through a terrible crisis, and during the remainder of bis life bis greatest desire was to forget all about It. A Doubter. A little boy four years old was very school much taken up with his teacher, but, returning from school _ the other Sunday, he went crying to “when pert his mother and told her the teacher had been telling stories. “What bas he told you, then, my dar- ling?” “He told us that angels wate all round our bed at night.” “Bo they do,” was the mother’s. re- ply.

There are some cases where “$5,000 was © paid, but the usual, price has been from $100 to $500. The practice became so common as well as so damaging that a severe law was enacted prohibiting any one from removing any woman from the coun- try, but it is said that the business goes on now as it has done for hun- dreds of years, and to that practice may be charged the fact that the wo- men of Kashwir are not as beautiful as they once averes The process of taking all the beaut!- ful girls awny, leaving only the ordi- nary and ngly ones to continue the race, has lowered the standard of beau- ty. Most of the women and girls per- form field labor as much as the men, and their dress is of the coarsest and plainest materials, consisting of a gar- ment like a nightgown made of white cotton.

It is often.a ques tion whether we are right in attribut- -| ing It In any given case. In 1870 I was‘serving with the —th United States cavalry. Ove June day it was announced that a newly made second lieutenant from West Point had been assigned to our company and would soon report for duty with a squad of recruits. He came along in tine, but instead of bringing recruits brought one gentle looking young fel- ted for a poet than a soldier. Merl- wether was his name, and he hadn't béen at the fort a day before the men began to call him Mary. Then fol. lowed a series of practical jokes of which he was the butt In some un- xplainable way he got salt In bfs cof- fee instead of sugar, Then there was cactus in. his bunk.

He was the most unsuspecting little chap I ever saw, and as the boys always expressed wonder how such mistakes could hap. pen, besides great sympathy for him, it never entered his head that they were at the bottom of his discomforts, Indeed one day he came to me as first live, without the least hope of any ac cumulation or of ever seeing better | days.

As a non conductor of heat It is used in the pro- tection of water pipes, particularly fh ; crossing bridges, where the plpe is laid | in the middle of a long box and the’ whole filled with melted rosin. Rosin is also used in supporting basement floors In machine shops, which may be laid over some dry material, as spent molding sand, which is carefully lev- ; Cled off, and the planking Inid upon i temporary supports separating it about two inches above the sand. Numerous holes about two tnelres ip diameter being bored through these ; planks, melted ross is forced through them by means of fuhneis until the whole space is solidly filled, and then the upper flooring. is laid upon these planks. In case the floor is subjected to shocks sufficient to break the rosin it rapidly joins together again In much the same manner as the regelation of ice. The Dragon Slayer. At an English school a powpous youngster whose father, it was well known, had been a successful omnibus driver was one day fingering ostenta- tiously a large seal which be is iy the | habit of wearing, representing St. | and the dragon, and, having . drawn the attention of a school eom- | panion to it, remarked carelessly: “Ah, one of my ancestors is supposed to have killed the’ dragon, don't you know!” “Good gracious!” inquired the other, somewhat anxiously. “Did be run over it?”—London Answers.

Fruitiess, Little Willle—Pa, what does this p» per mean by saying it- was a fruitless search? - Father—It probably applies, my son. to the quest of some man who was sergeant of the company and asked me if he couldn't take extra tours of guard duty for some of the ringleaders, they having expressed an extraordinary amount of sorrow that he had stum- bled over a pile of condemned muskets on a dark night. Since they vad pur. ~posely put them in his way this was a | trifie teo much for even my thick skin I told him not to bother me with ridic- ulous questions and warned the ring- Iéaders that I would see the first man punished who should again impose upon him. The first map was Tom Conover, who had been the instigator of the most contemptible | pranks against the recruit, and be was given a walking tour with a billet of wood on his shoulder for a whole afternodn/for his pains. This stopped the tmpdst- tion, and Meriwether fell into the con. tempt of not being noticed. This last- ed till we were fighting the Modocs tn the lava beds In 1871. Little Meriwether didn't Nike fight- ing at all, that was plain, for the color would rush from his cheeks | whenever a bullet whistled too close | to his delicate ear. But | noticed that | he would grit his teeth and scemed to be resolutely fighting himself to keep his slender body up to lis work. One afternoon we were having ap especially hot Oght, keeping up a steady fire on the Modocs and recety- ing as good as we sent from behind a natura! breastwork of lava, when Meriwether came crawling toward me on all fours with an expression of hopeless despair tn bis face. “What is it?’ I asked anxiously, fearing something bad gone wrong. “Conover—he's hit/’ “Well?’ I could see nothing re markable in Conover being hit when one-third the men were in the same fix. “He wants water,” “Get him some from a canteen.” “There's not a drop to be found any- where.” “Well, then, be must go dry, for the only water near is cown there in that crevicé, and no one can go there with- out getting shot.” “He's suffering dreadfully.” “Go back to your place, you little fool,” 1 said sharply, remembering what he had suffered at Conover's hands. He crawled beck, and | dismissed the matter from my mind, Presently 1 saw a sight that filled me with astonishment. Meriwether was rupning, canteen in hand, for the crev- fee containing water. Bullets sang [ about him like buzzing fics. Whether or not be was hit, he kept on and in = seconds sank out of sight in the bends I bad no right to do so, for there were two commissioned officers with the company; but, singing out to those beside me to follow, | jumped up and made a dasb for a rise in the lava just beyond the crevice. It was no use. The fire was too hot, and the men would not leave their position. I was shot in the leg and sank Into a hollow place, where | was comparatively safe. 1 was thinking of little Meriwether and wondering how he would get back | with the water for the man who had injured him when I beard a shout and, looking toward our fellows, saw bim.) plunge headforemost In among them. Night was well on before I dared leave my position and go back to the command. The first thing I saw was Meriwether lying on bis back, white as a sheet and motionless. One of his former tormentors was bending over him, and several others were leaning on the muzzles of their muskets, look- ing down on him anxiously. Mert-. wether turned his eyes to me, and I presumed he was about to ask me that dreaded question “Shall 1 live?’ when he sald: : “That was a very kind thing of you to come after me. How about Con- over? Was tirere all the water’ he wanted? I couldn't get much, for there wasn’t much to get.” I tried to say something gentle to him, but it wasn’t lu me. “Oh, stop that,” I. said, turnliig4 away. “You owe Conover nothing.” Later, when the captain asked me for the names of those who were to be meritioned for conspicuons bravery.

Cutting Of Siubs During the Grow- ing Scison of July or Augast. Buds put on last August or Septem- ber, if growing, should now have the stubs cut off. The stub Is the three inches or so of the stock left above the bud when tlie top of the stock (the young tree that received thé bud) was cut off in spring. This leaving of two or three Inches of the stock above the bud helps the latter in starting to grow. Some Icare no stub, but cut of the top even with the bud in spring. This saves labor, but the bud is not #0. certain to grow, and the wound docs not heal so well as when there is a sec- ond cutting In July or August. The cutting {s not ditienlt if the stub is half an inch or less in diameter, but care ia required to avold cutting the bud. The cut, as will be observed, la made on the side opposite the bud and should be slanting, about forty- five degrees. A sharp knife and a steady hand are necessary; otherwise the knife may slip or the polut of the kulfe iiiy Hot come cut soon enough, and the bud will then be cut off and all the previons labor lost. The proper cut is a somewhat rapid inclining upward, and if properly man- aged the point of the knife will be drawn out before the edge can come in contact with the growing bud. One cut may be sufficient, but frequently more than one will be required, and better three or four efforts than to run the risk of cutting the bud by one in- judicious cut. Should the stub be con- siderably over half an inch in diameter a small saw may be needed at first, smoothing the cut with the knife after- ward. Cutting off the stub during the grow- ing season in-July or August, the heal- ing process wil] proceed at once, and by the time the leaves fall the wound will in many cases be entirely covered by the new growth.—National Stock- man. ~ Formulas For Bordenux.

This injurious effect has been shown to be largely obviated by the use of the following: 2 pounds copper sulphate. 6 pounds lime. & gallons water. This is known as the 3-6-50 formula. ‘Some experimenters have also recom- mended the following for peach foll- age: (a) 22-50 formula (Cornell Agr. Exp. Sta. Bull. 180). (b) 3—-9—50 formula.

The beets which showed the highest percentage of sugar were those which: grew continuously throughout the season, May 8 planting has given the highest yield of sugar, while the May 1 plant- ing is but slightly behind. The yields decrease as we depart either way from the former date, The very early plant- ings—-that is, the middle of April, have each year been followed by a week of favorable growing weather, while in each case the planting of April 24 has heen followed by unfavorable weather, rom these figures !t is readily seen that the time of profitable planting may be extended over quite a consid erable area. It is safe to plant beets as early as the middle of April if the ground can be fitted at that time. After | the 20th of May there is a decided de crease in the final results, The special advantage of planting at various periods is due to the fact that | there is a longer period allowed for thinning the beets and a more general distribution throughout the season of the work of caring for the crop. The early plantings are of advantage be cause they permit of getting the thin- ning done before the press of other work demands the time of the farm labor. It also allows the tops to get sufliclent growth to completely mulch the ground before the weeds ninke their appearance, thereby dimiulshing the work necessary to keep the ground clean, Contrary to expectations, the earlier planted beets have giver vo ta ‘dications of cariier maturity, | setigalietitede MOUNTING A GRINDSTONE, draw cut from left to right, slightly .
