Tne Secretary of the Interior has
maJ a curious dtcieion upon an archi
tectural question The Homestead laws
require that, in order to validate a claim
of pre-emption of land, a house must
have been erected upon each quarter sec
tion. Some astute fellows have under
taken to comply with this provision nom
inally, not really. Building a house at
the point where the boundaries of four
qnarter sections come together, they have
made the building partly npon each quar
ter section. This is so smart an arrange
ment that it might be supposed that the
Interior Department would not submit to
it- The law requires a house to be erec
ted on each quarter section of land. The
cunning fellows interested in this exper
iment have really but a qnarter of a house
upon each quarter section, and yet Mr.
Delando decides that this is Sufficient,
and that a quarter of a house is, in the
Laud Department law, a house. The
decision has a tendency to encourage
frauds upon the goverumeut, and is such
a one or speculators iu land will greatly
approve.- Philadelphia Inquirer. .

graveyard cough, the heaviness of
mother and the despair of friends and

were my hourly refreshment ; a score of
nasty syrups iu villainous green bottles
adorned my mantel ; pastilles smoked
upon my stove, ana my coatnber was
redolent with the fumes of burning nitre.
My friends sympathized and suggest
ed ; one had heard his grandmother say
she never knew a tea made of chestnut
leaves to fail in such cases, if taken in
time ; another quoted an equally vener
able source in favor of bloodroot and
whiskey, with snuff of powdered galin
gale ; a third had all confidence in the
regular school, while a military friend
just from Texas contented himself with
the cheerful suggestion, " My boy, the
angels have taken a fancy for yon ; try a
southern climate." If there is anything
worse than dying of consumption, it must
be the reception of the advice prevalent
on the subject.
