good deal, as it yet has a month to inuke,
and it never does anything more after it

at least one-fourth of tho crop if not more

by a snake. The physician immediately
went to work to counteract the effects of
the poison and by reason of his prompt
nrrivnl wan successful in staying its ef
fects, ns the poison was already diffusing
itself through the lady's system. Ou ex
amining her foot it was seen that sho had
been struck twice by tho snake, onco bn
the ankle and again on tbo heel, which
oaused her to oxolnitn that hornet'ii

Marks, of Selma, Ala., were both
native, of Lexington. Ky. In boy-
hood they had iamlncd the same
cat's head into the same milk pitch
er, stolen peaches from the same
tree, got trounced from the same
farmers, and were otherwise en
viously intimate friends, after
wards chums at college, and then
errand boys in the same office.
Later in life they parted, and rose
to sublime honors in their separ-
places. Last January they
met for their (Irst time since their
parting, in Lexington; and brewed
a convivial b5wl'in“lipnpr, of. the
event. About midnigbt,'' lull of
affection and enthusiasm, they re
tired in the same bed. It waa’ a
huge affair, standing in (be middle
of the room and capabj.p of being
drawn up by ropes to the ceiling
while the room waa-being cleaned.
It was a very cold night; itnd they
placed their clothing on the foot
of the bed. Ju.t afar theyfejl

drew the tied by the Wj&i nedrl^

A pathetic story, showing also
a dog’s ability to And its way from
a strange plncc to its former home,
comes from Flat Itock, Ohio.
A voting farmer named McC'anley
emigrated from that place to Kan
sas. Hu put uis goods on the
cars at Bellevue, and with thorn
put a shepherd dog. On bit arriv
al at l.is destination be drove from
tho railroad station to his brother’s
house, the dog following. The
team was eared for and the young
.nan went into the house, leaving
the dog outside. The next morn
ing the animal could not be Bound.
He wrote back to Ohio to his
friends and mentioned the disap
pearance of tho dog. TUreo weeks
afterwards he received a letter an
nouncing the arrival of the .dog at
its oiil home. The animal refused
however to make up with anyone,
and in a short time died.
