a mysterious and alarming cattle dis
ease has appeared at Catawba, Clarke
county. It was first noticed in the
stock of J. H. Page, and then among
Thomas Randall's ; each of them lost
one valuable cow. The cows had been
milked according to custom in the
evening, and nothing unusual was no
ticcjd. Shortly after they became un
easy, and in five minutes fell down
dead. They commenced swelling short,
ly after, so much so that they burstcd
when the hide was punctured. An
examination was made bypkillful cat
tle men, but they could ascribe no
cause for their death.
The Ripley I3ee says : We saw on
Monday morning at Mr. A. Ludwig's,
the short tusks of a mastodon. They
were 'found in the bed of Straight
Creek,; about one-half mile from its
mouth, last week. One of them is
eutire and the other nearly so. They
each measure three and one-half feet
long and twenty and one-half inches
in circumference. The perfect one
weighs nearly fifty pounds. There is
no doubt but that the bones of the
whole animal are in the vicinity where
the tusk was found, and we understand
that measures will be taken for a reg
ular search. The tusks are petrified,
and it is probable that the entire frame
may be found in the same condition."

Important to Stock Raisers.
A decision 0 general interest to
farmers, and especially to the large
stock raisers "of ' the West, hits just
been made by' Commissioner 'Delano!
In some districts persons had been as
sessed for' tax as cattle brokers, who
were In the habit of buying cattle in
summer, and turning them into their
pastures, and selling them to butchers
and drovers, as soon as they were in
proper condition. The question of
their liability having been referred to
the Commissioner, he decided that
they were not liable if such buying,
pasturing, and selling were necessary
to their" business ns farmers and gra
zers, or properly incidental thereto.
The real cattle broker under this de
cision i3 lield; to be one whose regular
business it is. to buy. and sell cattle iu
valu.es greater than ten thousand dol
lars annually and simply for profit.
Customers, like sheep, are gregari
ous and flock where they see others
go. If nobody elso were engaged in
the sftme business, it would bo impor-1
taut ID -tradesmen and dealers to . ad
vertise in the papers, because people
are tempted to buy what they read of.
But others are engaged in the same
business, and even if they do not ad
vertise, it becomes the more important
for you to do so; if they do advertise
it becomes doubly important Anon.

A Friendly Word to Those
Who Write for the Press. The
Jackson Ohio Standard contains the
following xxceflent advice, which it
would be well for all who write for
the newspapers to heed: - - --
Do not write with a pencil. Use
good ink, and write 011 only one side
of the paper. The reason for this is,
that otieu two or three printers set up
the same article, and they cannot di
vide it when written on both sides.
If you cannot punctuate correctly, do
not attempt it. It is very trouble
some (0 come to a () at every few
words, and especially at the end of a
sentence. Do not uso the character
&, but write it out, "and". Do not ab
breviate, but write out every word
in full. We can abbreviate where
Please observe these rules in future.
year will occur tha great cennial
census of the United States
made by." the General . Government.
Persons Will be appointed Tor "every
locality in the States and townships
to gather statistics of the inhabitants
and of all the agricultural productions,
manufactures, etc. Each cultivator
will be asked - for a concise, accurate
statement of land occupied by him,
the number of acres, and the amount
of each crop raised during the year,
ending June 30, next. Those who
were called upon before will doubtless
remember the difficulty in making up
an accurate report of the various crops.
As these reports will be called for in
June, it will be necessary to give In
the crops gathered in this fall. The
suggestion that we would now make
is, that cultivators write down, while
fresh in mind, the number of acres un
der cultivation, the'.number of acres cf
each kind, the amount per acre, and
the gross amount. The milk product
also, and t-he amount of pork, beef,
etc., will also be,askeil for, as well as
all kinds of fruit, etc. -Chil. Adv.

District Court, at Louisville! have in
dicted Captain II. T. Dexter and First
Engineer Best, of the steamer Phan

near Paducah, Kentucky, involving a
serious loss of life. Captain Dexter
gave bond in the sum of $5,000 for his
appearance at the neit term of the

to Use Them.
Though wo have for some time been
living under tho rule ,o .stamps,, the
question is otic of every day asking:

in proof of their danger, and affirm

at once; and every retail vencVr who

test, before selling the oil, is guilty of
a negligence which the people ought
to be slow to pardon.
