The tone of the market has also been easy In consequence of unfavorable advices from both Kuropr and the West Indies; although there is no reason to believe that purchases could be made at any concession from the prices previously paid. The statistical situation of the market is jfood, and importer are disposed to hold their stocks for full prices; but until the market airain opens quotations must be called nominal on the basLs of 5.C2 to 5.U9 for 96 per cent test.

Now you have had an earthquake, and we are glad of it. Yours are just begin ning, and ours are at their final end. We think we have had our last. We think you of the east will have a great many more, and a great many harder ones and more destructive.

He Was Nervous About Sexvcr Gas. Detroit Free Press. A citizen living on Hastings street en countered a policeman near his house the other day and a&kedhini where the office of the board of health could be found. The officer replied by asking him what was wanted, and the man explained : "Well my house is full of sewer gas, and I was going down to see if anything could be done. " The officer volunteered to go in and smell around a little, and a visit to the premises failed to disclose a single pipe or drain leading from the house, the hydrant being in the back yard. lie, however, found a barrel half full of melon rinds, apple parings, bread crumbs? tea leaves, etc., at the back door, and he said: "That's what you smell all over your house. " "Suppose it is? " 44 Of course. "Why, I could smell that across the street ! " "Well, I declare, but I guess you are right! Oh, well, if that's all it is there's no use fooling around any more. We can get along with that, but we're awful nerv ous on the question of sewer gas. r Co-Operatlve Cajuy-Karming:. Chicago Tribune. Co-operative baby-farming is a success at Guise, France. In a late issue of Le Devoir, the official organ of M. Godin, who is the governor of the familistere at that place, it is stated that the birth-rate under his communal S3'stem is about the same as in French towns of the same popu lation, while the infant mortality is 50 per cent less. The baby farm comprises a baby-house and a baby-garden. The house contains 100 beds and cne immense play room, especially fitted up for its inmates. It opens liush with the garden, and is sur rounded Avith spacious verandas. The ad ministration is by a governess, with two assistants and the mothers to serve.

THE OLIVE. I have often been asked the ques tion, "are the lands of Sonoma Mounr tain adapted to fruit and vine cul ture?" nd I unhesitatingly answer yes. But there is an industry fast coming into prominence, which I think will eventually monopolize all the available lauds on the mountain. I speak of the cultivation of the olive. True it is nly an infant industry, but so far as tried has proved itself to be an infant of unusual vigor; like the wine industry in 18C0. it is specu lation as to the best varieties for dif ferent localitiec and will be for sev eral years, until some enterprising man experiments extensively, and the different varieties become as well known as the vine is at present. Elwood Cooper of Santa Barbara Is doing much in a practical way, hav ing about 11,000 olive trees in bear ing. Prof. Pondroflf is also doing much with his pen. So far as climate is concerned, I think all the conditions are favorable hero to a successful cultivation of the tree which the Italians justly call "amine on earth." It is to be regretted that we have no data as to the mean tem perature of the mountain lands of this country. I copy from the late Mr. Bedding a table showing mean temperature in olive-producing regions: Tern, for For Coldeiit Year. Winter. Month. ' ' iiiii ' i mmmmmm 00.05 4i.07 45 00 50.03 49.06 47.00 I f.y.02 43.08 41.00 ' 5S.03 45.02 43.02 01.01 52.05 51.04 58.03 45.02 45.20 CITIES Home , Naples Florence .. Madrid Lisbon. , Marseilles . Tin above table will give some idea of the climate requisite to the successful cultivation of tho olive. As to soil, the tree will grow in a I mo t nny kind except low, wet sop. Marsh says 4,it prefers a light, warm wii'. but' does not thrive in rich alluvial land, and grows well on hilly and rocky surfaces; its great enemy is an excess of moisture.'' Bernay, Hillhouse and Dr. Bobinson all agree on that point. Downing: says, in an article on olive culture in Italy, "A few olive trees will servo for the support of an entire family, who would starve on what could be otherwise raised on the same, sur face." The olive when once planted is planted for all time; trees in Eu rope, still bearing, are known to jq over four hundred years old; it comes into bearing from four to six yeans, but not to it full limit until twenty five or thirty j'ears. It is a tree that wili vta!..d kiiore abuse than anv oilier, arid return good for evil. W. A. Cassicly in the l'etaluma Courier. There is a zone of land on each of the larger of the Hawaiian Islands that fulrills all the conditions of soil and climate that are needed, accord ing to the above extract, for the suc cessful growth of the olive. This zone is found at an average of about 0,000 feet, and there, high above the limits at which tropical fruits thrive are to be found thousands of acres, at present hardly utilized at all, and only so as sheep and cattJe ranges. Amongst the many as yet undevel oped resources of the islands it is reasonable to conclude that the growth of the vine and olive will, in the near future, occupy a prominent place. The stock necessary to start olive orchards and vineyards can be easily and quickly procured from the Coast and the subject is commended to those who have the land. The S. F. Wasp sums up an edi torial article on the late Presidential contest and the part it took therein as follows: "Deeming the masses of both po litical parties similarly honest and similarly unwise, their leaders about equally corrupt, and principles held "with parallel insincerity and fctated in platforms alike absurd; seeing nothing to choose in their insane methods of contention about the airy nothings that they dignified" as 1 issues,- we have nevertheless taken part in the strife, for we believed that the best interests of the country demanded the election of Mr. Blaine. But the grounds :' our faith being few, the range of our advocacy was narrow. Aside from the obvious facts that Blaine was a man of ob viously better ability than Cleveland, of longer and richer experience fn affairs, of wider acquaintance with public men and the natioi and of more sympathetic relations to the American people, there was not much we could honestly say."
