animal inoculated with the matter of farcy will
often be afflicted with glanders, while the

While glanders are generally incurable, farcy,

Fatcy has been among Honolulu horses and

has carried off a great many horses and mules
on Maui during the past three or four years.
The disease prevailed at Sprcckclsvillc aliout
this lime last year and continued into this
year resulting in the death of many valuable
mules. The disease there differed from the
farcy noticed here in attacking the nostrils
first, and, in a short time, eating away the
cartilage of the nose.
The symptoms of farcy as noticed in Hon

by swelling of the hind legs, chiefly the off
one. The other symptoms of the disease may
be read in "Youatt," or any other good horse
It is clearly the duty of some one to inquire
into the matter, and see that no horses afflicted
with cither glanders or farcy are allowed on
the public streets, or arc kept where they may
infect cither horse or man. The agent of the

accomplishments sufficient understanding of

would have been both true and interesting.
During a big thunder shower little Willie,
who slept up-statrs alone, got scared anil
called his mother, who came up and asked
him what he was frightened aliout. Will ad
mitted that the thunder was a little loo much
for a oungstcr who slept alone. " Well, if

pray for courage." " Well, all right," said
Willie, an idea coming in-to his head, "sup

A letter written by Prosper Meritnec during
his Eastern travel) In 1811 ha just been un
earthed which contains n compliment by a
Turkish pasha to the press. "Great inven
tion, newspapers," slid the pasha to his
visitor: "they afford an excellent Wiy to pass
the time." "llut you Oriental have the
pipe, which is infinitely superior." " I don't
know about that," answered the (usha.
"You see, when you smoke, sometimes it in
spires you with gloomy thoughts, whereas,
when you read the French newspapers, jou
never find nnytlung lo think about at all I" If

"Ten years ago two loving heart in Eng

to Ihe miscarriage of an explanatory letter. He
left home, married; she stayed in England and
married, and now liotli arc once more free.
He has eight children and the Jaundice, and
she seven and the dysjicpsia, ina neilhrr has

Il is said that the Prince of Montenegro,
who some time ago closed all the cafes ami
drinking shops in his dominion, regarding
them as schools of effeminacy, extravagance
and corruption, and aliolished all titles, so that
while formerly every other man in Montenegro
was an " Excellency," now even the Ministers
have lo be content with plain ".Mr.," has re
cently issued an interdict against nil " luxuri
ous wearing apparel," including cravats gloves,
walking sticks, parasols and umbrellas. Hut
even Ihe Prince of Montenegro could scarcely
be so unkind as to forbid, in this wet weather,
the purchase of some ofG. W. Macfailane H
Co.'s umbrageous umbrellas.
