The "Indian question" is to be repre

in quito a new light. Mrs Hopkins,

clous full-blooded Piute Indian of pleas- '

Although New York has a number of
illuminated clocks, scarcely any of them
have dial plates easily react at night ex
cept by persons of decidedly strong
sight. One of the best night clocks in
existence is that of the Horse Guards
building in London. Tho light, known
as Btulo light, is not within the clock,
but is throwu upon it just as that of a ,
bull's-eye lantern is thrown on a dark
corner. This light was invented by a
Cornish savant, Sir Goldsmith Gurney,
who called it Budo after his native
A traveler in Japan writes : "And
here let me say, once for all, that though
tho prescriptions of Japanese etiquette
are many, and even onerous at times,
it is not in these formalities that tho
much-talked-of Japancso courtesy es
sentially consists, but in the modest
self-restraint of demeanor, tho prompt
ness to oblige; the unsleeping care to '
avoid whatever might by any possibil
ity annoy or offend, and tno peculiar
gentleness of tone and manner which
render the Japanese, whatever his rank :
or position may be, so truly a model
'gentle' man in the proper and authentic
sense of the word."
The census has been taken all over
France, but the result will hardly be
known before the middle of March, as
the drawing up' of the various statistical ;
tables will entail much labor. Mean- "" '
while, it is interesting to look back into
the past and to see what progress tho
population of that country has made in
the way of increase since the beginning
of last century. In 1700 it was not
quite up to 20,000,000 ; in 1801 it was a
little over 27,000,000 ; in 18GG thero were
88,000,000 of Frenchmen, but tho year
1872 showed a diminution of nearly
2,000.000. Tho war and tho losses and
misery which it had entailed, coupled
with tho surrender of Alsace-Loiraino,
wero tho cause of this substantial do-
crease. In 1876, however, matters had
already begun to improve, and tho cen
sus taken in that year raised the figures
to exactly 87.WU.000. it is hoped that
this year's census will show that tho pop
uktion of France has increased even in
a greater proportion, and that it may be
found to have risen to 88,000,000, the
highest number ever yet attained.
Hero is a true story of a little girl,
three years old, who was charged with,
breaking a flower from its stem. She,
said, "No, I didn't b'eak it" Still, thai j
older person argued that she must have!
done it, for no ono else had been in thai

tho older said, "Now, Ada, 1 see a sto

The Model Farm.
The Keota (Iowa) Eagle has at last
found a Western man who is satisfied
with a fifty-aero farm. His name is
Ai'temus Fisher, and ho lives ono milo
and n half south of Keota. Tho Eiqlc
tells t he story of his management and of
his success as follows: .
Ho keeps ono team of horses, threo
first-class cows, and a nice little drove
of tho best hogs. Ho milks his cows for
the creamery, and they nmdo him near
ly 200 last vear; will perhaps do better
this year. lie will sell $500 worth of
hogs this year, and have thirty stoekers
to keep over, lfo has $200 worth of flax
seed to sell; lias an abundance of hay
and grain to keep his stock in first-class
condition during the coming Winter.
He keeps everything in apple-pie order
about his farm; his eows revel in clover
up to their eyes; he attends to feeding,
watering and milking as regularly as
the clock strikes, hence he gets the best
results with t lit) least possible feed. Ho
keeps his stock under covesfc and nover
allows any animal to shiver in tho fence
corners, lie hits a barn that is a model
of convenience nnd economy. It is snow-
froof and as warm as the old kitchen.
Io has tlrst-elass selection of fruit not
a large orchard, but a choice seloction
of tho varieties that thrive and bear the
best in this locality. Everything about
the farm bears marks of intelligence,
thrift and economy. Besides making .a
liviui: III! llllliwil nmi ijmo .'!.
ho will sell at least $800 worth of stuff
off his fifty acres this year, and not be
exceeding former years cither. Thero
is no rush or hurrv about this "model
farm. ; Everything goes off quietly an;I,
ana uie irumi sure. 1 v
