According to a leading farm Journal
(hers baa been a wonderful advance in
hi ffi values of late.
la tbe-eentral west, throughout the
XfhVa valley, the forms which cost a dol
lar Or two per acre fifty years ago are
now held at - forty, fifty and sixty dol
lars or more per acre, improved with
commodious and substantial buildings,
furnished with convenient and often
elegant furniture, carpets, sewing mar
Chines, libraries and musical instru
ments There are Indeed poorer estab
lishments, occupied by younger or less
enterprising lament, but Improve
ment lias been general if not universal.
Iteyond the Mississippi are newer lands,
more recent improvements, made by
men who went into tbat region with
scarcely more than willing hands and
tout hearts, and their investments
have virtually been created with hard
and patient labor. In (he entbnsiasa
of success assured by strong will end
stout muscles, they have borrowed
money from friends in the older states,
or from banks and they are paying up
their indebted jess rapidly in this sea
son of abundant crops and good prices.
But the mortgage record remains, evea
though nine-tenths of the debt may
have been already repaid; and jet dem
agogues quote the en t lie amount as the
burden that is crushing the energy and
life of the vaunt, farmer. A reliable
and successful farmer of the west de
clares that he can purchase a firm of
one hundred acres at one hucurcd dol
lars per acre and pay its cost with the
profits of its cultivation in five years.
According to a recent showing, the
S3.000.000 inhabitants of the United
States comprise approximately no less
than 12,500,000 families, occupying
farms or homes. Of the number, ac
cording to reliable authority, about
S,.VX),000 occupy farms or homes of
which they are the owners, bat which
are encumbered by mortgage lade'otcd-
The remaining 10,250,000 families oc
cupy premises which are either owned
free or are rented. It is to be noted
that the returns, so far as published.
malce no distinction between the two
latter classes. It would certainly be
Interesting to know what proportion of
our country's population occupy homes
of their own, whether mortgaged or
free, and what proportion rent their
homes. In the state of Iowa, which is
taken as a representative community,
the average amount of tbo morta.es is
stated to be S!,2S on a farm and S720 on
each encumbered home, or on average
for both of S1.140. If these averages
hold good for the entire country the
total encumbrances on the farms and
homes of the United States are not far
from S2.5C0.0OO.O00. These figures ar.5, it
is admitted, incompk-tc, and cannot bo
accepted cs conclusive. It is i-roba-ble
that when the fall returns are lit
hand hcy will have to be seriously
amended. liut, however interesting
they may be, it docs not seem probable
that the inquiry into the mortacs on
American homes will become a pcrma
nant feature of tbe. United States

What is a rabbit-bitten holly whip?"
In the first instance it has been found
that for a lonjr-handlcd whip, bneh as
the English style of driving demands,
tbe wood of the European holly makes
the toughest stick obtainable. More
over, those plants that have been
gnawed by the mischievous little ro
dents Invariably produce the best and
most durablo stick. The injury to t'.ic
bark stops the growth of the tree and
decreases the amount of sap. As a sec
ondary consideration the handles of
6uck whips often shore very peculiar
and intricate patterns caused by tho
Br a recent experiment it has been
shown tbat marble contains a pois raons
gas. Taking an empty bottle the oper
ator placed a lighted candle inside and
it burned freely, showing that there
was oxygen, which represented life,
in the bottle. He next picked up a
gloss jar which contained a small
amount of water. After having pow
dered some of the marble he dropped it
into the jar and connected the jar and
bottle by means of a glass tube. Some
acid was poured Into the jur and the
contents began to sectho end boil and
the deadly fumes were released from
the dost. The foul air passed from the
jar into the bottle, driving the fresh air
out. lie again plaeed the lighted can

TuTItE are some people, says an ex
change, who are constitutionally un
able to (TO behind an official record.
Usually they are only amusing, but
sometimes they succeed in making
nuisances of themselves. For instance.
there is a ecuvict in a Georgia peniten
tiary who cannot pet out, though his
sentence has expired, all because he has
been put down on the records an dead.
Another convict of tiie same name did
die, and some of the officials have got
bim tangled np with tho living mun.
So everybody wiil have to wait until

How to Civilize tho Indians.
Miss Collins, a Maine girl who has

the care of the sick, tlie nature of dis
ease and the proper nr,e of taeUi'-ine re
leases them fr.im the inQnenee of the
