- We had on board, as a matter of course,
the betting young man from Chicago. No
- steamer ever sailed that did not have this
young follow aboard, and 'there are enough
of them to last the Atlantic for a great
many years. He knows everything that
everybody thinks he knows but does nyt,
and his delight was to propound a query,
and then when you half answer it to cooly
and exasperatingly remark:
"Bet yer a bottle of wine you're'wrong."
The matter would be so simple and one
of so common repu;e that immediately you
accept the wager, only to find that in some
minute particular you were wrong, and that
the knowing youth had won.
For instance: . .
"irhompson, do you know how many
States there are in the Union V)
Now, any citizen of the Unied States
wno votes and is eligible to the Presidency
ought to know how many States there are
in his beloved country without thinking,
but how many are there who oan say off
hand I And so poor 1', hmf son answord:
"What a question I Of course I know."
"Bet yer bottle ye don't."
At-d then 'I hompson. would find himself
figuring a very important proolem as to
whether Colorado had been admitted, and
Nevada and Ongoa, and he wou d decide
that one had and the other hadn't, and
flually state the number, with great certainty
that it was wrong.
The Chicago muan's crowning bet occur
red the last day out. The smoking-room was
tolerably hll, as well as the occupants,and
every bouy was bored, as everybody is on
the last day. The Chicago man had been
silent for an hour, when suddenly aie broke
"Oh, no more bets," was the exclama
tion of the entire party. "GUve us a rest."
"I don't want to bet, but I can show you
"I say it and mean it. I can drink a
glass of waer without its going down my
"And get it into your stomach 1"
Tuore was a silence of considerable more
than a minute. Every man in the room had
been victimized by this gatherer of incon
siderate trilles, and there was a general dis
positi'n to get the better of hin in somte
way, if possible. Here was the opportunity.
How could a man get a glass ot water into
his stomach without it going down his
thioat? Impossible I And so the usual
bottle of wine was wagered, and the Uhica
go man proceeded to accomplish the sup
posed impossible feat. It was very easily
done. All he did was to stand upon his
head on the seat that runs around the room
and swallow a glass of water. It went to
his stomach, but it did not go down his
throat. And so his last triumph was greater
than all his previous ones, ter every man
in the rooi had been eager to accept iis
wager. From that ilma out had he offiered
t) wager that he would swallow his own
head Ie would have got no takers.
"The Long-legged Looo."
The monster locomotive built at Altoona.
Pa., for the Pennsylvai.ia Ra"lroad Com
pany, made her first trip between
Philadelphia and Jersey City recently. She
is technicaily known as the "new clasa K

the "long-legged loco" by the railroad men.
This latter title comes fron liler big driving
wheels, which stand six feet six inches
above the rails. Five feet and eight inches

and a miaximaum steam pressura of 140
pounds. She has a greater lire surface by
nearly 50 square feet than the next best
locomiotives, and the b'g lire -box is gamned
in a peculiar mainer. Instead of hanging
insie the side frame with the springs on
top of the frame, the boiler rests on the
frame and the springs are beneath it. The
width of the framne is thus guaiued for the
firebox, and the boiler's steauung capacihy

Usz GOOD TooLs-A great many farmers
are "penny wise and pound foolish" in
regard to farm tools and implements. It is
very poor economy to use poor and worn
out tools, when by their use the work is I
made more tedious and less effectual. Ail
farmers are familiar with the difference 4
of using a saw that is in good order and
one that is old, rusty and dull. 'The same i
rulo holds good with all farm tools, in a
greater or less degree. It has been said "it I
is a poor carpenter who does not keep his
.tools sharp." We believe the same saying
might be equally well applied to farmers. I
A sharp hoe, toytl-e, plow-pointor culti. I

and- with much less power than wh n dull.
Better use up the grindstone than the I
extra muscle m working with a dull or
rusty tool. The few minutes tha tit
takes to grind a tool will be returned with
interest by the time and strength saved.
But it is one thing to have good tools and
another thing to keep them good. The im
plement can remain in gnod order ir kept

less thin thirty feet apart, to plant peach
trees between the applea. They will not
inierfere with young apple trees for many
years,and then not until about two gener- I

We have referred to this economizing of 1
space on several occasious, having seen
it adopted by some first-class fruit growers.
We are glad to see that raising of peaches
in the eastern counties of this State is V
yearly increasing, and it is no doubt found
to be quite as profitable as any other fruit
crop when its cultivation is properly un- r
derstood. As dried fruit for winter
use there is none so popular, there I
being a demand at all times for any
quant'ty that can be raised. The o C
fashioned method of drying the peach,
after quartering with the skin on, we don't
think has been inprove(d on by removing E
the skin, because the skin and that part or t
the flesh adhering to the skin, whteh con- 9
tain the largest proportion of the flavor of I
the fruit, aro lost.
KRI'INo F.oUR 8wET.-The keeping
properties of flour depend largely on the
care bestowed up n the wheat before it
reaches the miller's hand. The wheat
should not be allowed to stand in the field
exposed to drenching r..ins, or housed In a
danip state. It is quite generally agreed
that the bran of wheat sours first, and the
high grade flours, frim which every ves
tige of the hull is removed, retain their
freshness longest. If wheat is perfectly
dry when put into the bin or garner it will
keep a long time without "heating" but it
will keep a much longer time if si ored where
a current of fresh air is admtited. Flour
will keep best in a cool, dry, airy room.
In the summner flour should not be stored
either in a ccllar or garret, but in rooms
where there is a free circulation of fresh
air. Flour should not bo- stored wit I grain
or other substauces which are liable to
heat, as it has been known to spoil from
being stored in contact with such articles.

KIDNEY 4 OMPLAINTS.
DISEASE OF TilE KIDNEYS.
The symptoma of an acute attack of inflamma
tion of the kbueys are as follows: Fever, pain in
the smnall of the back, and (thence shooting down
ward; nuitimbess of the thigh, vomiting, usually
at Airst a deep red color of the urine, which be
cones pale and colorless as the disease increases,
andt is (ischargod very often with pain and diM
culty; costivoness, and soie degree of colic. In
chronic tilseases of the kidneys the symptoms are
pain m the back and limbs,- dryness of the skin
frequent urinittions (espectilly at night) general
rlop y, headache, dizziness of sight, intligention
and palpitation of the heart, gradual loss 01
strength, paleness and pulliness of the face, cough
and shortness of breath.
In diseases of the kidneys the VRORTINE gives
immediate relief. It has never failed to cure when
it is taken regularly and directions followed. in I
many cases it may take several bottles, especially
cases of long standing. It acts directly upon the
secretions, cleansing and strengthening, removing
all obstructioui and impurities. A great many
can testify to cases of long standing having been
perfectly cured by the. V~a-risE, even after trying
many of the known remedies which are said to be

iranville. In an Interesting work on thissub
ect, says, with reference to the difficulty
ome persons find on getting to sleep:
'Habit greatly helps the performance of
he initial act, and the cultivation of a
iabit of going to sleep in a particular way,
t a particular time, will do more to pro
luce reeular and healthy sleep than any
'ther dtrtifice. rhe formation of the habit
9, in fact the creation and devQlopment of
, special centre or combination of the nerv
us system, which will henceforward pro
uce sleep. as a natural rhythmical process.
f this were more generally recognized
ersons who suTer from sleeple saese of
he sort which consists in simply being un
ble to go t s'eep, would set themselves
e (Autely to form such habit. It is neces
ary that the training should be explicit,
nd include attention to details. It is not
ery impoitant what a person does with
le intention of going to sleeb, but he
houlu do precisely the sAime th-ng in the
ame way, at the same tire and under as
early &s possible the same conditions,

How To TREAT A CoL.-When you get
hilly all over and away into your bones,
ad begin to sniffle and almost struggle for
'cur breath, just begin in time and your
ribulation need not last very long. Get
oPMe powdered borax and snuff the dry
owder up your nostrils. Get your cam
ihur bottle and smell It frequently; pour
ome on your handkerchief, and wipe your
ose with it whenever needed. Your nose
vill not get sore, and you will wonder
rhat has become of your cold. Begin this
reatment in the forenoon and keep on at
utervals until you go to bed, and you will
top as well as you ever did. I'm just tell
ug you my experience.
No Hospital Needed.
No palatial hospital needed for flop Bit
ers patients. nor large salaried talented
puffers to tell what Hop Bitters will do or
ure, as they tell their own story by their
,ertain and absolute cures at home.

. NEW AND STALn BDA.-The -nature o
the difference between nw and etale bread
is far .from being known. It is only Ia ly
that the ce'ebi ated French chemist, Boutsin.
gault, instituted an inquiry into it, from
which it results that the difference is not
the consequence of, desication, but s)lely
of the cooling of the bread. It we. take
fresh bread into the cellar, or ih any place
where it cannot dry, the inner part of the
loaf, it Is true, is found to be crumbly but
the crust is no longer brittle. If stale bread
is taken into the oven again, it again as
sumes all the qualities of fresh baked bread,
although in the hot oven it must undoubt
edly have lost part of its moisture. M,
Boussiugault has made a fresh Idaf of bread
the subject of minute investigation, and
the results are anything bit uninteresting.
New bread, in its smallest parts, Is so sort,
clammy, flexible and glutinous (in conse.
q'ience of the starch during the process of,
tormenting and baking being changed into
mucilaginous dextrine,) that by mastication
it Is with greater diilculty separated and*
reduced to smaller parts, and In less under
the influence of the aiva and digestive
juices. It consequently forms itself into
hard balls by careless and hasty mastication
and deghitation, becomes coated over by
saliva and slime, and in this state enters the
stomach. 'Ike gawtric juice being unable
to penetrate such hard amases, and being
scarcely able even to act upon the surface
of thein, they frequently remain in the
stomach unchanged, and, like foreign bod
ies, irtinate and inconimode it, inducing
every species of suffering-oppression of
true atomach, pain in the chest, disturbed
circulation of the blood, congestion and
pain in the head, irritation of the brain,
and intlanimattion, aijopiectic attacks, cramp
