Texas Pecan Crop.
Heretofore the pecan crop, as a source
of revenue, has attracted but little attention.
No care whatever has been
taken with the trees; in fact, in many
localities trees fifty to 100 years old have
been cut down solely to obtain the nuts.
Before the civil war the export from the
port of Indianola alone was reported at
$100,000; now it is estimated that the
amount actually gathered exceeds $2,-000,000
in value. With proper care of
the trees and systematic gathering of the
crop it is believed that 810,000,000 oould
be realized annually. Millions of bush
els are lost every year by falling on the
ground and rotting or devoured by hogs,
squirrels, turkeys and other animals and
birds. Except in inclosed pastures no
claim is made by the owners of the land
to the fruitage of the trees. Mexicans
and negroes are the pecan gatherers, and
in some districts white children, 2'exas

A Suspended Aqueduct.
A cheap suspension aqueduct was invented
and used by some miners in California
in 1852. A river ran between two
bluffs, one of which was considerably
higher than the other. Writer was
available on the one, but it did not
"pan out" as well as that upon the
lower. Some sailors, including the
mate of a whaler, took up a claim, and
succeeded in making a hose of strong
duck, about eight inches in diameter,
and stretched it from the higher to the
lower hill by means of a strong rope
running through it. Water was then
carried through this weak hose", which'
could not havo resisted the pressure if
lowered into the valley;, and the ingenious
sailor's realized' handsome fortunes

A party of miners pacing through
the Territory of Arizona had occasion to
bury one of their number who died on
the way. To mark the spot they cut
an inscriptioir on a stone which they
found, and placed it on his grave. When
the place was afterward settled it was
referred to as the "Tombstone," that
being the only landmark. Hence the
origin of the name applied to a town in
The custom of " pairing " is not a
new one in legislative bodies, and is frequently
resorted to. When two legislators
of opposite political views find it
necessary to be absent from the sessions
of the body of which they are members,
they agree to absent themselves from
the discussions of the house during a
specified period. They maybe "paired "
on some particular question ; that is,
when tyoth are absent the general result
is substantially the same, for one would
vote for the measure and the other
against it. This

from abroad were deposited, and
then taken by those to whom they were
