''is like eating soup with a fork; it takes a long time to get enough." Next year being leap year, young ladies crazy to be married in the centennial year will no doubt avail themselves of their privileges. An honest old man on being informed the other day that one of his neigbors owed him a grudge, growled out: "No matter he never pays anything." Henry Ward Beecher now gets $100, 000 a year for preaching, and likely he thinks "I had rather have $100,000 than be president."

At these rates the American Express Company now carries parcels to all points on its lines. In most nstances the Express Company will have he advantage, since it delivers it packges is they arrive at their destination, while a hackage sent by mail, (except in larger Litres where thero is a carrier delivery) is held at thj post office until called for. Almost a "Horror."

It struck the collar bone tearing uway the Hesn and inflicting another kvouud. and had there been nothing to ob struct or had the iron gone but a little tarlher "another Ulster County horror" nigh have been the result.

The Clearfield Republican, says: Too much caie cannot be exercised in the pick ing of potato bugs, to prevent them from coming in contact with any part of Ihe body where the skin is broken or scratched and the hands should not be used about the body in aay way until after a thorough washing. John Harwick, a citizen of this place, has had some ezperienoe in ibis line, a relation of which may prove of benefit to others. While at work in his potato-patch a week or two since, with his shirt-sleeves up slaying the bugs by the hundreds, a small abrasion of the skin on one of his arm 8 took a notion to itch, and he care lessly scratched it with his nails, thereby introducing the poison into his blood and he has been suffering since in a terrible manner.

A number of Germans who were accus tomed in their own country to a system of co-operation, purehased a tract of Und ia Dedham, Ten of them erected houses for their own use. A separate mortgage for about 82,000 was taken on eaoh house to secure a joint and several bond signed by the ten owners, by whioh they agreed to pay $6 a week into a savings bank to the credit of the mortgagee and trustee. One-half of each deposit is onough to pay the inter, est semi-annually at seven per cent., aad the other half goes on interest, with a certainty that in a low years it will pay the principal and leave the houses unincumbered. On the first days ol January and July the mortgagers have sent their deposit book,s to the trustee and mortgagee, who has drawn the semi-annual interest and returned tba books with their accumulations to tbe owners, every payment increasing his seourity, and tho association taking only tho risk that every holder of real estate takes who leases bis property Ten or more industrious and temperate men. who bad confidence in one another, might form such an associaton with peculiar advantages.
