Hogs-The American Swine.
This is a dissertation on the Amer
iean hog-swine-not the two.legged
kind that kick en the hotel service,
take up two seats in the railway
train, and go through life grunting,
grumbling and kicking against every
thing in general and nothing in par
ticular. but the four-footed, cloven
hoofed, swill-sucking animal that,
when killed, is good to eat all the
way from the end of his nose to the
tip of his tail.
This county spends thousands of
dollars annually for pork and bacon,

chickens, hogs-all these things cau:

wheat, oats, potatoes, and all the
vegetables and fruits, and each and
every one cai, and will, bring good
money. All that is needed is a feu
good canningfactorie. and a few

so we still keep up the farce of buy

we can raise at home.
It is the small industry, the diver.
sified industry, that pays and pushes
a town or community along, just as
the smiall farmer, the one who has
his various patches -corn, melons,
beans, onions, tomatoes, roasting
ears, cabbage, etc., and makes some
clear money on each one, so it is with
the small, diversified industries.
They furnish employment of various
kinds, and a person does not have
to be an artisan to make wages.
These industries also make good
money for the stockholders.
Along this line, we understand

The Nurse's Vocation.
The distinction between the wo
nimn to whom nursing is a vocation
an1d the woman who merelY earns
her living by nursing is II very real
one, al though it is a very difficult
oneI to define. A nurse may be full
of faults and yet have a true voca
tion, while, on the other hand, a
woman of the most estimable type
may b~e lacking in the smallest spark
of the divine fire. The vocation for
nursing leaps out from the hum
blest as wiell as from the highest
homes in the kingdom. Its one
shining mark is its vitality.-Hos
Wouldn't Puff the War.
Napoleon III. had given orders
that reporters should not be per
mitted to accompany the French
troops as reporters. His reason was
characteristic: "The effects of our
'mitrailleuses' will be so terrible,
and those writers will make such de
scriptions of them, that our battles
will impress people as mere maus
sacres, and everybody will have a
horror of them." A reporter of Le
Figaro, Alfred d'Aunay, was so in
dignant at the emperor's order that
he exclaimed: "Very well, then. We
will not puff this war!"
How a Dog Keeps Cool.
Professor E. LA. Tronessart of the
Paris Museum of Natural History, ia
a lecture on animal heat, remarked
that the dog, whose reiirations in re
pose number only twenty-fiv'e or thirty
per minute, may in running acquire a
rate of respiration as hIgh as 350 per
minute. The effect of this acceleratlon
favors the dissipation of aninal heat
by evaporation from the pulmonary
v'esicles. Tihe (log p~erspires very little
or not at all b~y the skin, pulmnonaury
taking the place bf cutaneous trans
piration. It is this fact wvhleh enables
the (log to pursue its gamemt so long
and persistently. Aninals of the cat
family, on the other hand, do not pos
sess this peculiarity, anud for that
reason tigers, panthers and Jions lie
in wait for their p~rey, but (10 not pur'

a very high degree.
