The Olive Tree.
The height of an olive tree is usu
ally twenty feet, but it is sometimes
as hitrh as fiftv feet, and it reaches an
almost fabulous nee. One recently
destroyed at Beaulien had a recorded
age of five centuries, and it was thir
ty six feet In circumference. The
olive tree i3 exceedingly prolific un
der cultivation. Tho fruit yields
about 70 per cent, of its weight, ex
clusive of kernel, in oil. Italy is
said to produce 35,000,000 and France
7,000,000 gallons or oil annually.
The tree does not vegetate readily
beyond 2,000 -feet altitude or 45 de
grees latitude. .
The transition from long, lingering
and painful sickness to robust health
marks an epocn in the lite ot the in
dividual. Such a remarkable event
is treasured in the memory and the
agency whereby the good health has
been attained is gratefully blessed.
Hence it is that so much is heard in
praise of Electric Bitters. So many
feel they owe their restoration to
health, to the useot the Great Alter
ative and Tonic. If you are troubled
with any disease of Kidneys, hiver
or Stomach, of long or short standing
you will surely rind relief ly use of

Electricity Taking the Place of Steam.
Prof. Elihu Thomson, in speaking
on "The Problems of the Future,"
says: "In the near luture railways
will be run by electricity ; not the
small roads, I mean, but really the
large ones connecting cities, and
there is no reason why we should
not expect higher speeds than we
can attain at present with our steam
locomotives. There we have recip
rocating parts that must be put in
motion, stopped, and reversed con
tinually, while in the electric loco
motive we have the simple rotary
motion, which is all we need, which
mases it possible accordingly to run
at a much higher rate of speed.
Although the steam locomotive has
been very much improved, yet it
hardly compare with the economy of
stationary engines, placed where
they can have an abundant water
supply for condensing purposes. We

Cures For Sleeplessness. , .
A clergyman who is afflicted with
insomnia finds that "to walk even
one mile in the day is a great thing"
in the way of a remedy. At the
moment, he says, the hest thing one
can do is to get up, drink half a glass
of water, and walk round the room.

The Origin of Fires.
A Chicago man, in repairing an
old sofa, found among other articles
that had slipped between the back
and seat twenty-eight matches. The
discovery is not a very important
one, but it points the moral, that if
less reckless carelessness was used in
the promiscuous scattering of these
little agents of combustion there
might not be so much monotony
about the phrase in the daily papers,

For the third time little Tommy
Figg had asked his father what was
the cause of the desert of Sahara.
Finally, the old man laid down his
paper and answered ; UI reckon it
was formed when the Israelites lost
their sand. And if you don't quit
asking me so many questions, I'll
see that your mother puts you to bed
hereafter before I get home." "But,
paw, how can you see her put me to
bed if she puts me to bed before you
get home ? " And that question was
Tommy's last for that evening.
