A farmer of New Brunswick, Ind.,
ran down and killed 114 rabbits in
the anow one day last week.
Vermont is the home of at least
two daughters of revolutionary 6lres.
The second was discovered last week
in Royalston. She is Miss P. II.
Atherton and is 8G years old.
The new woman had her inning on
the first day of this leap Tear in
Greencastle, Ind. The customary
by.receiving'of callers was undertaken
the men of the place, and the women
made the calls.

He is the autocratic leader of the

IIHnoH Farmer' Inatltote.
The last general assembly, appre
ciating the benefits to follow from
the holding of farmers1 institute
meetings, passed a very liberal law
creating the Illinois Farmers' Insti
tute, thus providing the machinery
for the general extension of the bene
fits of such organizations to all por
tions of the statu.
The ollicers of the Illinois Farmers1
institute have secured the best talent
in the state to discuss all subjects of
interest to the farmer, horticulturist,
dairyman and live stock breeder, and
hence the interest in the meetings
held at Springfield this week.
, Gladstone and Marat-li.
A sisnl.ir story was once related by
Mr. Ol.ifl.-Ioiio Willi reference to the Into
Hon. Mrs. Francis Stonur. Mr. lad
stono wan a.ked (h.ritiR tho teventies
how ho was utile to bear without irrita
tion tho tierce political nthick of Lord
IicuconsflcM, then Mr. Disraeli. Ho re
plied that Mr. Disraeli's onslaughts had
but little effect upon him, for ho re
membered the following incident : Whoa
Disraeli was assailing ir Robert Peel,
he was invited to a dinner party, at
which Mrs. tonor. thou Mis Eliza
Peel, was alsa a gnat. Mr. Disraeli
happened to sit near her at dinner and
endeavored to enter into conversation
with her. She met him with marked
coldness and replied t j his observations
in monosyllables und with averred face.
Mr. Disraeli persisted in his attentions,
whereupon Mis.-Stonor turned angrily
upon liim and asked him what he means
ty pprsecnting her with liis distasteful
society, having regard to his conduct to
her father. Mr. Disraeli replied with
the Rreatest nonchalance : "Really, Miss
Peel, I am surprised that you misunder
stand mo. I am a man of the world. I
mean no nnkiuduess to Sir Roberr. I
am only thinking of myself." "Yes,"
aid Mr. Gladstone, "I bear in mind
that Mr. Disraeli is only thinking cf
himself; tho knowledge is an antidote
to Irritation. "Westminster Gazette.
Lonsdale Ha Outdone Scott.
Sir Walter Scott rendered himself
ridiculous by onco seizing on a glass cot
of which that respected monarch, George
IV, had drunk, and retaining it as aa
inestimable relic. Lord Lonsdale has
cutdone him. The German emperor was
pood enongh to pay him a visit, and
subsequently to invitp him toretnrn the

Father, the ennui i f Moltke because he

Sir W. Fowler tells the storr of Hux
ley's courtship. When tho Rattlesnake
was in Sydney harbor, the officers were
invited to a ball, and young Huxley
among the number. There for the first
time he tuet his future wife, whose par
ents resided at Sydney. A few days t.
r they were engaged, and the ship sailed
for the. JTorrea straits to complete the
survey ct tnc north coast ot Australia,
all communication being cut off for
months at a time, and then she returned
direct to England. After that brief ac
quaintance (not longer than a fortnight)
it was seven years before the lovers saw
one another. At the end of this time,
on Huxley's appointment to the School
of Mines, he was in a position to claim
his bride and welcome her to their first
home in St. John's Wood. Huxley's love
at first sight cud constancy during those
seven long years of separation were
richly rewarded, for it is impossible to
imagine a pair more thoroughly suited
In bis interesting studies of the struc
tural peculiarities of cotton Dr. Walter
Gardner has fcucd that, when magni
fied to the extent cf about 150 diame
ters, a typical cotton fiber has the appeer
ance of a spirally twisted band cr ribbon
with irregular surface markingj, the
thickness Icing greater, as a rule, at the
edges thaa is the center, and having,
therefore, a grooved or channeled aspect.
The spiral character is much mcro
highly developed in some varieties than
in othr3, toing less prominent, for ex
ample, in the bettor qualities cf sea is
land. A transverse section cf the fiber
exhibits a central cavity running longi
tudinally with respect to the fiber, this
appearing sometimes as a white and
sometimes cs a black streak between
the thick edges of fiber when viewed in
plan. The breadth of the fiber, which
varies from 0.C004 to 0.001 inch, is in
the average somewhat less than that cf
wool, tho hitter ranging from O.OOIij to
0.002 inch, though a comparison of the
thickness is of absolutely no value iu
distinguishing between tho fibers a
point iu which silk also is similar, hav
ing a diameter of about 0.0007 inch.
What are known S3 "dead" cotton and
"mercerized" cotton have r.u entirely
dilToreut appearance from ordinary cct
tou, but tho former is only met with as
individual libers, and the latter is of no
wide importance practically.
An Editor nctl TIM Snap.
An Hi tor who died of starvation aft

"Easily," said tho angel.
So th.y went below and skirmished

Toor lloy Won't Live a, Month.
So Mr. Oilman Brown, of 34 Mill
street. South Gardner, Mass., was
told by the doctors. His son had
lung trouble, following typhoid ma
laria, and he spent $375 with doc
tors, who finally gave him up, say
ing: "Your boy won't live "a
month." He tried Dr. King's New
Discovery and a few bottles restored
him to health and enabled him to go
to work a perfectly well man. He
says he owes his present good health
to the use of Dr. King's New Dis

at the corner of First Phitcros street,
just off the entrance of the Portal, when
suddenly one of them was roughly

to remonstrate and even made motions
with his cano to punish the offender. At
this moment his companion felt a sting

inside of his collar and naturally made
him throw tip his hand, and while so
doing tho pickpocket grabbed the man's
