The nnrurn.1 Boap mines ot Owens
Lake, Cal,n.rc thus nmmnteil for
hy one of tl'io company now work
ing them, llv myH that fhe widen
of thu hike contain a strong wdntion
of bobix and Koda. In these waters
thorn breeds a grul tliat becomes
ally. The flies die in the water
and drift ashore, covering the
ground to the depth of a foot or
more. The oily substance of the
flies blends with the borax and
soda, and the result is a layer' of
pure soap. These strata repeated
from year tw year form the soap
names, where largo forces of men
aro now employed. This soap
miner in quoted in a San Francisco
paper as follows: "There is another
queer thing about the waters of
these lakes. You shoot a duck and
fail to get it, and in a little while,
when it drifts ashore, you find that
its fat breast and sides have changed
to elegant toilet soap, and you can
chip it off and use it, and it is just
as nieo as any refined soap.
Profits to CI RaLamx
Mr. W. A. McCraw, of Ft. Henry,
this county, gives us the following
facts which speak for themselves:
Ho sold twenty-four head of cattle
in Louisville realizing $8G7 as
net proceeds. Of these, thirteen
weighed 13,1G0 pounds which ho
sold at 4J cents per pound He
also sold a number of hogs fattened
by following the cattle, realizing a
sufficient amount on the sale of the
hogs to pay for the feeding of the
cattle. He also sold ewes for $4
tor. whfidt he paid 2' last fall, and
the lambs raised from, the ewes for
$3.25 per head making a net profit
of $5.25 on each ewe. The pastur
ing and feeding of these ewes costs
almost notliin-g as they were fed
Tery little and were pastured on the
wheat and rye during the winter.
These facts show that enterprises
of this kind pay a great deal more
than raising corn and tobacco at
the present or even prospective
J. H. Hale, authority on such
matters says, that the peach-grub,

tree and the mixture is applied
with a swab.
An excellent remedy for bad

ox six weeks, and if useful then
continued . occasionally. It is . a
pleasant refrigerant and tonic

When Alexander was asked how
ho had conquered the world, he re
plied " By not delaying." A good
suggestion for any practical worker
in the world. It is from the habit
of putting oif, that so many good
things that are thought of are left
