A Connect icut man has invented

for the purpose ef promoting
industry among .the ladies of the
farm-yard. The apparatus is
simple, and consists of a box for a
nest, with a. trap-door for the
bottom, so that when the hen lays
an egg it drops through into a
receiver underneath, the door
?closing automatically. When- the
hen gets up to look for the egg
it has gone, and she thinks she has
made a mistake^ and lays another.

n.bf; this interesting subject :
v Water was for a long time con
?Jsidered a simple element. Aristo
j^tle advanced the theory that al
matter is composed of four ele
ments-earth, air, fire, and watei
To which his followers adde<
quintessence, or fifth essence. Thi
theory was held until Cavendish in
.the year 1784, by some careful ex
periments, determined that what
had formerly been called a mix
ture of air-in the* experiments
with sulphuric acid and eine, was
nothing more than a gass jhixed
with some oily substance. By
further experiments he found it to
be one of the constituents of water.
He burned 423 volumes of hydro
gen, which took up 1,000 volumes
o?~?ir. In the 1,000 volumes of
air thei e are 210 volumes of oxygen.
There Jie found the proportion in
water to be 2 volumes of hygen
and 1 of' oxygen. All experiments
from that time until this, have
proved this, proportion to be cor
rect. What the future may or wiil
develop we do not know, yet we
?may safely say, with our present
knowledge on the subject, water is
composed of the above mentioned
Mr. Editor, some one will say,
that is only theory, surely, it is not
true. "Seeing is knowing,*' says
the old adage. I have seen the
union going on. Although these
gasses are invisible when they

Last evening our society dis

Success to you and yours.

The State prohibition executive

astonished senses of the members

greatest battle of the present sees,

plenty of interest in it.
The State committeemen of the
prohibitionists have come together,
healed their differences and have
prepared the bill that will startle
the natives and begin the battle.
The bill was finally agreed on at
the meeting held on Thursday.
Mr. Childs seems very much
satisfied with the bill as finally
arranged, and says that while in
a good many details it is some
what different from the bill that
he prepared, the only changes that
have been made merely makes
the bill ?tronger and more satis

A speaking of ,the prospects o?
gassing it, Mr. Childs said thal
I this was a good bill and unless he
could get such a bill through-s

preferred to have no prohibitior
