In the region of the Black sea it is stated that even if the peas ants escape actual famine they will have to receive advances for seed corn. Contrary to general belief, the Sa hara is not a barren and worthies waste. Some time ago there were 11,000,000 sheep in the Algerian Sahara alone, besides L!,000,000 goats and -00, 000 camels.

WM •.' SMi Printers' Ink complains that the !f,20,000,000 annually spent for chewing gum is twice as much as is spent on churches.

A Maine Central brakeman says that •tramps are not particular how they ride or what they ride in as long as they get a ride. Kecently the night freight out of WaterviUe conveyed a liearse in a flat car to Portland. Near Monmouth, as the brakeman was go ing over the train, he discovered the feet of a tramp protruding from the hearse and the man himself sound asleep. The riots at Barcelona, Spain, at the time of the departure of troops to rein force the Spanish army in Cuba, are significant. They indicate that the people of Spain are not at all satisfied that Cuba is worth the sacrifice of life that is being made in the effort to suppress the insurrection. The Span ish losses in the field and in the hos pitals have been very heavy.

'4 The sentence imposed upon Dr, Jameson and his fellow-raiders was so light that it was suggested tluit Lord Russell had purposely made it so in order to prevent an exercise of royal clemency, which might cause a feeling of resentment in the Trans* vaal. But, after all, the queen has found an excuse to interfere, and in stead of this noble band of guerrillas having to subsist on prison fare and sleep on the soft side of a plank, they will be treated as "flrst-class mis demants," and enjoy hotel life, with the slight difference that they will not be able to take a stroll down Bond street on in Rotten Row.

A 3V ftvel Solntlon of the Currency Question Suggested by tlie **41 LOWELL MOUSING TIMES. The limes says: It recently happened ihiu a resident of I.owell desired to pay a bill due to a friend who Is a medical mis sionary in Hri'ish India. Tlie friend from that far-away country suggested that it be paid ir. Ayer's Sarsapariiia, which he said is reckoned '*AH Good n» Golil!" On application to the *J. O. Ayer Co., they readily gave an ardor on their Uombn.v ngc.it.v for a quantity of Sarsapariiia to an ai ount equivalent lo the face of the bill. A letter ili.letl K.ihurl. India, Oct. IS, has just been recehed in Lowell, which says: "The Sarsapjrilia was duly received and as It has a reguur market quotation price was converted into cash '.-ith the utmost faeiity. Whatever may be said about ot'ier sarsapa ri his and the medi'-mr.l valuo of tlieir eon tei ts. this fact remains, that Ayer's Sarsa pariiia is so well known in India that it has a market value, depending jpou the fluctuation in ihe value of Tlie Silver Rnpeo, .is much as cotton or other staples. This is not the ease with any ether sarsapariiia of American makers. Tne natives of this country are very eon ervatlve, and unless an article is well known they are ?hy about using (t. A native will take a bottle of Ayer's Sarsapariiia from my dispensary and walk off with it without raising a question as to lis purity or curative qualities. This is the truth, and I do not scruple to let you make whatever use of the statement you may choose. The success of this remedy in this country shows what judicious ad vertising of a meritorious article has ae compished. !f I had JIiiiK-y I.nciifil I'p in quantities of any medicine 1 would prefer Ayer's Sarsapariiia lo any other twenty times ovt r. for I know that I could get my money back in the former case, while in the other I should have to retail it bottle by bottle In order to realize my money." As a cuireiiey Ayer's Sarsapardla might be cumbersome, but one thing would be sure— you'd always get the value of the dollar invested iu the remedy. M::miuotli Clover. A correspondent inquires about Eng lish clover. On looking the subject up in our authorities, encyclopedias, re ports of the department, of agriculture, etc., we are surprised to lind that no mention is made of English clover. It seems that clover of no kind is native to that island. T-'ic common red vari ety was introduced there from conti nental Europe about 1(140, and soon became popular and has been so ever since. They grow a variety called the Mammoth, or sapling clover, and we think this is sometimes incorrectly called English clover. This large vari ety is excellent for fertilizing the soil, but unless cut quite green is not worth much as forage. The stalks become quite large and very tough, and stock will not eat them, so that a large part of the plant is wasUd. Mr. Wallace, in his book on Clover Culture, says of it: "While the Mam moth is far inferior to the medium red as a hay crop, and, therefore, we do not advise its cultivation where a hay crop is the main object, it has very im portant advantages to the farmer who has exhausted tlie fertility of his land by long years of cultivation in wheat, corn, oats and llax and who is not in shape either to buy live stock or to provide the shelter necessary to keep llieui at a profit. In such cases as this we advise the sowing of Mam moth clover with every crop of spring grain, even though it be the intention to plow it up the succeeding year. It. conies in bloom two or three weeks later than red clover, anil on this ac count is often sown with the red, when intended for pasture, as it pro longs the season considerably."—Indi ana Farmer. Illoirn From a Traill. "I do not suppose that once in a hun dred times we ever learn' tlie real cause of a railroad accident." said a man who is well posted on such matters, "when any one of the principals concerned is killed. In individual cases, where a man is lost from a train, and his body is found later beside the track, suicide is the tirst thing suggested but you can never tell. A peculiar accident happened to a friend of mine. He was traveling Eastward with some friends. He left them for a few min utes to go to the smoking car. As he crossed from one car to the other—that was before the time of tlie vestibule trains—a strong wind that was blowing struck him and blew him to the ground, lie was wearing a large circu lar coat, which acted as a balloon in flated with wind, and it was responsi ble for his being blown off the train, as well as for the fact that he lauded on his feet unhurt. He walked some dis tance to the nearest station and tele graphed ahead to his friends that be was all right, and would come on by the next train. If he had been killed every one would have said 'suicide,' for the possibility of a man being blown from a train would seem to be an ab surd idea." EKKptnnl Wltli Siltll.
