A lump of nearly pure lead was recently taken out of the ground near Joplin, Mo. ,Jt weighed about 8,000 pounds. At Williamsport, Md., is a ma ple tree that has a full crop of green leaves, while every one of its neighbors is dry and leafless. A smart little Pennsylvania girl living near the Maryland line has trapped fenough fur-bearing ani mals to buy herself a nice gold watch. In Sevier county, Aik., Nathan Canupn, aged 83, undertook to kick a dog. The dog dodged, and Mr, Gannon was picked up with broken leg and wrist. With a record of having buried 1,3000 persons, George L. Moore, an aged undertaker of Guthrie- ville, Penn., has at last been laid under the soil him self. A thief stole a pair of shoes from a policeman at Sedalia, Mo., the other night, and the “cop’ didn’t even stop snoring while the thief was untying them. Marcel Bernier recently died his kome'at New Aukum Prairie, Washington, aged 69. He was the first white child born in Wash ington, then Oregon Territory. HOne hundred and sixty-seven bears were killed in Maine last year. The state paid out $8 $6 per head bounty. Over 81,000 was paid as bounty for killing crows. must precede another fight.

The belle at a recent dog feast on the Indian reservation wore jacket trimmed with teeth from 150 elks, which she herself had slain. She is a granddaughter the chief of the tribe. of It An espalier pear tree at Pollet, France, was planted in 1580, and .now the oldest in Europe, spreads 100 feet, its stem is three feet through, and it still bears 3000 to 4000 pears yearly.

Ho not allow rats about your hen house. • The damage they can do pays one to fight them off. To raise strawberries successful ly the ground must have rested the year previously as a summer fal low. A most disgusting picture of dirt is that ol a dirty dairyman, with dirty hands, milking a dirty cowin a dirty barnyard, and catching the milk in a, dirty pail, where it is left to absorb the dirty odors of a dirty • atmosphere. It is impossible to breed profita bly chickens’ from overfed and stimulated fowls—a billious hen cannot lay a well-developed egg, and the chick cannot develop its several organs and parts in per fection from a- poor egg.

There are coffee forests, for in stance. The coffee business is not cultivated at all, but trees grow wild in such luxuriance that it is utterly impossible for a man to penetrate them. Paths are cut through them from one village to another, and that is all. When coffee harvest comes around the people gather the berries from the od ges of the groves, and the rest goes to waste. “It is much the same with sugar cane. The people do not cultivate sugar cane. It grows wild, you can tell that by looking at it when it is brought to town. It is crooked. You could not for five dollars get a straight piece two feet long. Ev erything grows in such profusion that people live in spite of revo lutions. In no other country could the drain of such constant warfare be sustained. Ordinary govern ment is terribly expensive. Every year when coffee season comes- around, the government collects from 84,000,000 to 85,000,000. But under the system there the officials in power know that their turn to go into exile will soon come. I have been there two years, but a third set of officials is in power. Each set, knowing that" "its time would soon end, had t oprepare to go, so they pocketed all the money in sight.” The Thrifty Hen. The hen of the United States is a great institution, and no one need make sport of her. She was worth to this country last year oh her own personal accouut $200,000,000 according to the Bureau of Indus trial Statistics. Besides this, the foreign hen contributed two mil lion and a half dollars worth of eggs to our uses. This would sug gest that a farther acquaintance with the hen would be worth culti vating. There is large room for ambitious poultry raisers to in dulge their tastes at profit. Augusta’s scientific men are puz zled over the case of Major Perry, an old darkey with paralysis, who goes into trances, and delivers fine sermons from orthordox texts, and wakes up to complete unconscious ness of his performances. A printer’s error has been de tected in the last issue of the Bible from the Cambridge press. In Isaiah xlviii, 13, the word “founda tion” is begun with an “r” instead of an “f.” The mistake was dis covered by a young son of Bev. Dr. H. Adler, who has received the standing reward of a guinea offer ed for the detection of such an er as -hardy as the "former, and both are so excellent that they should receive more consideration. The Paragon chestnut is a'choice vari ety, equal to the common chestnut in quality, and more than doable in size and very prolific. Whether an American seeding of the Japan chestnut, or a hybrid between the latter and the American species, is not known certainly, nor rs it im portant since the tress continues to do well wherever tried in Penn sylvania, Ohio, etc. The price at which young trees can be obtained is moderate. Another valuable in troduction is Hale’s Paper-shell hickory nut, a variety of the shell- bark hickory found recently in New Jersey. The shell is remark ably thin, the surface having gen tle depressions and undulations in stead of the corrugations of the ordinaryjiickory nut. Kernel thick and of fine flavor. Owing to the difficulty of propagating the hick ory, by both budding aud grafting, this choice variety must continue to be scarce and high-priced for some time yet. The hickories and chestnuts are free from the fault justly charged against the walnuts —all of them—of the roots being injurious to other trees in the vicinity, aud to the grass even. The Cost of Fertility in Hand. It is beyond question that the essential elements to be supplied in plant food consists of only three, viz: nitrogen, potash and phos phoric acid; all the other elements seem to be abundant and available in most soils; but some of these three are often lacking, or are locked up in a combination beyond the reach of most plants, and must in some way he unlocked or sup plied artificially, or we can have no healthy plant growth. These elements haye an almost fixed value the world over. Soluble nitrogen is worth over 16 cents per pound, potash 5 cents, phosphoric acid cents. Comparing the various land products it is demonstrated that selling $500 worth of hay would remove fertilizers with a value $366; $500 worth of corn, $180 same of wheat, $125; of wool, $50 like amount of dairy products, $500 worth of fruit would cause loss of much less than either of the last, .thus in the matter of fruit growing it is shown to impoverish land only in a small proprotion that ordinary farm crops do.—S. Bailey. to me. There is too much of a great many things in this world, but not too much of that. "There is too much bad temper. Too much scandal. Too much evil thinkiug. Too much hard judgment. Too much impertinence. Too much weakness unforgiven. Too much of bad puns. Too many courses at dinner. Too many chestnuts. Too many liars. Too many bores. Too many tiresome plays. Too many women who support their husbands. Too many books written to sell and not to read. Too many—no there are not too many babies, and while there are plenty of babies and plenty of love, there will alway be plenty of happiness in this world. J. W. Nance, a Texan, adver tised that he would be at Mur freesboro, Tenn., oue day last week, to buy all the hens he could get at 25 cents apiece.. He came along in a poultry car capable of holding 5,000, and he had to telegraph for another, as there were 10,000 pul lets waiting for him. Bnclclcv's Arnica Salve.

Within the past twenty-five years the city of Borne has been transformed almost beyond recog nition. The population is now over 400,000, and a quarter of a .century ago it was less than 200,' 000.
