Counties, has been rendered so fertile
by the use of "pine shatters"the
leaves and cones of pine treesthat
the farmers of the section are growing
rich. A farmer who has made money
out of "pine shatters" says: "They are
rich in carbon, and when the fermenta
tion or oxidation takes place, motion
follows, humio and other acids are
formed, mineral matter is acted upon,
chemical changes take place, and the
land is changed from a dead mass of
sand and clay to an active, fertile soil,
bringing in motion the latent elements
that are often there."
Wo Will Have I as Soon as W Have a Far*
It is heretofore been the belief held
by the philosophers and thinkers from
the earliest times that language is an
evolution growing in developoment as
human thought needed a vocal vehicle
for expression, Savage tribes with an
extremely limited range of ideas, and
whose actual transactions of daily life
embraced only the simplest facts,
wonld necessarily have need for an
extremely simple and scant language.
As they might advance in civilization
and culture, they would improve their
language to meet the necessities of ex
pression. The invention of alleged
universal languages by the act of a sin
gle individual sets all the laws of lin
guistie evolution at naught, and can
therefore accomplish nothing useful iu
any large sense. The history of the
English language presents a great
number of facts which illustrate this
evolution. Since no race so far as
known possesses an indigenous or
original civilization, but has always
learned from some external and superior
source, so there is no language which
is complete in itself, developed from
indigenous roots without admixture
from the exterior. The English tongue,
composed as it is of many diverse ele
ments, has long been undergoing the
processes of evolution which must con
tinue to operate for a great period in the
future, so that the day will come when
the language will be as different from
the Englsh of to-day as is our language
from that of Chaucer. In America the
development must take to itself forces
and forms which will never come into
operation in the mother country, and
finally through their intervention we
will have a distinctively American lan
guage. It is impossible to formulate
an American language until we cease
to have constant and extensive acces
sions of foreign immigration until,
indeed* we can assimilate and absorb
all the ^admixture of foreign blood.
Then we will have an American race,
then we will have an American lan
gnage. Noah Webster was its great

MANT believe that corn has a higher nu

"Untold Agony from catarrh."
'Prof. W. HAUSNEit tho famous mesmerist,
of Ithaca, N. T., writes: Some ten years ago
I suffered untold agony from chronio nasal
.catarrh. My family physician gave me up as
mcurable, and said I must die. My case was
such a bad one, that every day, towards sun
set, my voice would become so hoarse I oould
barelyspeak above a whisper. In the morning
my coughing and clearing of my throat would
almost strangle me. By the use of Dr. Sage's
Catarrh Remedy, three months, I was a well
man, and the cure has been permanent."
"Constantly HawKing and Spitting."
THOMAS J. RUSHING, Esq., S90S pine Street,
St. Louts, Mo., writes: I was a great sufferer
from catarrh for three years. At times I could
hardly breathe, and was constantly hawking
and spitting, and forthe last eight months
could not breathe thiough the nostrils. I
thought nothing could be done for me. Luck
ily, I was advised to try Dr. Sage's Catarrh
Remedy, and I am now a well man. I believe
it to bethe only sure remedy for catarrh now
manufactured, and one has only to givo it a
fair trial to experience astounding results and
a permanent cure."
Three Bottles Cure Catarrh.
ELI BOBBINS, Bunyan P. O., Columbia Co.,
Pa., says: My daughter had catarrh when
she was five years old, very badly. I saw Dr,
Sage's Catarrh Remedy advertised, and pro
cured a bottle for her, and soon saw that it
helped her a third bottle effected a perma
nent cure. She is now eighteen years old and
