The New Tacoma Ledger says:
"Oleomargarine, or bogus butter oc
casionally finds its way int this re
mote market. It is made of beef tal
low and wther grease, but iB claimed
"by its factors to be pure and whole
tome. It is difficult to distinguish
this substance from butter, and it is
sold largely throughout the country
as the genuine products of the dairy.
The city council of Chicago recently
enacted an ordinance requiring the
manufacturers of oleomargarine to
stamp its true character on all soid,
under penalty of $5U for each oIIoiimj."

Tlie T'oungest Telegraph Operator
in the "World.
The Waco (Texas) Examiner
&ays: The frontier telegraph office
at Williams much, as stated in the
Examiner some weeks ago. is man
aged by Hallfe Hutchinson, a little
girl nine years of age. A gentle
man who returned from there a
few lays since says Ilallie is the
most njinarkably intelligent little
elf he ever had the pleasure of
meeting. Sh bandies her instru
ment with the success ami pre
cision of an old operator.. Recent
ly, when election returns: were
coming in and the whole oountrj"
was wildly excited to know the
result, little Halite tat at her in
strument, her eyes aglow with
intelligence, ad giulierHl in the
news from all over the union,
while dozens of brawny men
crowded around to hear what the
lightning brought, and. to admire
the wonderful skill of the iittle
operator. While controlling the
wires a she doe Hallie is not un
like other Hub1 girls of her age in
her habits and inclinations. For
instance, one end of her operating
table is piled full of baby dolls,
and she spends a great deal of her
leisure time dressing and nursing
them. Brown county may claim
the youngest telegraph operator iu
Spots on the Sun.
St. IHlts KrpttMkllH.
When speaking of the spots on
the sun. in his lecture the other
night. Professor Rees stated that
many of thern were noticed to re
volve with great velocity, some of
them at the rate of 120 miles per
second. These rotations are ex
plained by the facts that then are
on the surface of the sun cyclones
which drift along those large
masses of volcanic matter at an in
describably swift rat:. It must
be remembered that the smallest
one of the spots would be covered
by about eighteen earths. When
speaking of solar cyclones we must
not imagine that they are like the
ones we have here on earth.
Should a solar cyclone strike the
United States, in thirty "seconds
all the country between New York
and San Fram-iseo would be float
ing away into space in the shape
of a vaporous cloud. The terrible
friction would ignite everything.
One of our cyclones may travel
fifty o- one hundred miles iu an
hour, but a solar cyclone at the
rate of 120 miles in a second would
do infinitely more damage than
one hundred cyclones could do.
A Large Fruit Farm.
The fruit farm of R. McKinstry,
near Hudson, New York, contains
.'W.O00 trees, his entire farm of 300
acres being planted with fruit
trees. He has 7,000 trees of Rhode
Island Greenings and the same
number of 13a4dwius, the total
number of apple 'trees being 20.
000. Mr. McKinstry has 4,500
cherry trees, the largest 'number
of any single variety being S00
Black Tartarian; 2,000 pear trees,
"700 of which are Bartletts, and he
has 200 each of Seckel, Sheldon
and Aujou. There are also 1.000
Concord grape vines. 1,000 peach
trees and 200 crab ap'ple trees;
and last, but by no means least,
the highway through his domain is
liued with 4o0 maples. Mr. Mc
Kinstry s crop of apples two years
ago was 20.000 barrels. Nearly
all of his crop is sent to Europe,
shipments beginning in August.
