Farmer Wayback—No: it was my pail.—Somerville (Mass.) Journal. POINT8 ON BINDING TWINE. The Farmer Should Know How Many Feet He Gets for a Dollar. That the farmer is often taken ad vantage of in the way of misrepresenta tion by the store keepers is an un doubted fact, and one instance that has come to our attention in the last year or two, that has been very profitable to some of the dealers, is in the misrepre sentation in regard to Binding Tivine. Of lute years there has been intro duced into this market a grade called standard Manila, which is colored Sisal to represent Manila. It is the Standard twine of the Eastern manufac turers, where Sisal twine is more large ly used than Manila, because it is more easily obtainable, and their object in coloring it is, of course, to deceive. Dealers handling this twine represent that it is Manila twine. Manila twine is never made less than 600 feet to the pound, whereas Sisal twine is never made over 500 feet to the pound, which is 20 per cent less, and consequently should be 20 per cent less in price. The 600-foot Manila twine sells in the Eastern market for not less than two cents more per pound than the Sisal, and consequently the dealers that can sell this colored Sisal for Manila twine are making this additional profit. The colored Sisal, called Standard, does not contain any more feet per pound than White Sisal, so that, if White Sisal Twine goes 500 feet to the pound, then the Manila 600-i'oot Twine, being 20 per cent longer should lie that much more in price, and I'nre Manila 650 foot Twine, being 30 per cent more to the pound than the Sisal, should be 30 per cent more in price. Consequently the lowest priced twine is not neces sarily the cheapest. The milk in the cocoanut is, how many feet do you get for a dollar? It takes the editor to make a long «tory short. l®Gü ©' rdiDiPg <$L One may sail the seas and visit every land and everywhere will find, that men of affairs, who are well Informed, have neither the time nor the inclination, whether on pleasure bent or business, to use those medicines which cause exse33lve purgation and then leave the internal organs lu a constipated condition. Syrup of Figs is not built on those lines. It acts naturally, acts effectively, cleanses, sweetens and strengthens the Internal organs and leaves them In a healthy condition. If in need of a laxative remedy the most excellent is Syrup of Figs, bnt when anything more than a laxative is required the safe and scientific plan Is to consult a competent physician and' not to resort to those medicines which claim to care all manner of diseases. The California Fig Syrnp Co. was the first to manufacture a laxative remedy which would give satisfaction to all ; a laxative which physicians conld sanction and one Mend recommend to another ; so that today Its sales probably exceed all other laxatives combined. In some places considerable quantities of old-time cathartics and modern Imitations are still sold, but with the general diffusion of knowledge, as to the best medicinal agents, Syrnp of Figs has come into general tue with the well-informed, because it Is a remedy of known value and ever beneficial action. The quality of Syrnp of Figs is due not only to the excellent combination of the laxative and carminative principles of plants, known to act most beneficially on the system, with agreeable and refreshing aromatic liquids, bnt also to the orglnal method of manufacture. In order to get the genuine and its beneficial effects one should always note the full name of the Company—California Fig Syrnp Co.—printed on the front of every package. • 'i / \ \ L \ / it-tmi i UAi \- \ \ The Price of Admission.

Bend a match in the center so that it: forms an acute angle, and place it over the neck of a large bottle; on top of the match place a piece of money, a cent, for instance, as shown in figure. The trick is to put the money into the bottle without touching the match or the bottle. Dip your finger in water, holding it over the place where the ^matcb is bent, and allow one or two drops of water to fall on that point. The two steles of the angle will open slowly, allowing the money to drop Into the bottle. THE AMERICAN FATHER. Average Man of Family Gives Too Lit tle Time to His Children. Is It right to the child that be sees and knows so little of his father? Is all this commercial strife worth the price of a child being almost a stranger to his own father? Men are sometimes surprised that their ehildreu go in stinctively to their mothers, and so little to them. But aside from the nat ural instinct which draws every child to his mother, why should the fact cause any wonder? A child attaches himself to thosé who give him the most attention, to the one who joins him in his play. And if. as so many fathers do, a man places busiuess first in his life all during the week, and buries himself In those modern curses, the Sunday newspapers, on the day when he is at home, what can he expect from his child? it is a case of the child not seeing the father during the week, and the father not seeing the child on Sun day. A man must be the wage-earner and the family supporter. That Is the duty laid out for him. But when that is accomplished is it worth his while to push on into the commercial maze at the expense of the sweetening that should come Into the life of every man?

RECENT JUDICIAL DECI8IONa The absence of the Jury from tha courtroom for a few minutes, nnattend ed by an officer, was held by the Su preme Court of Mississippi, in the case of Carter vs. State (29 So. Rep., 148), to subject the Jury to a suspicion of Improper Influence, and is an irregular ity which vitiates the verdjet. The mere fact that a conversation Is by means of a telephone does not put upon the party proving ltltny greater burden of proof than that involved in the establish'ng of any oral contract made through an intermediary, bolds the Supreme Court of New Jersey In the case of Henderson Manufacturing Company vs. Moore (48 Atl. Rep., 525). The promise of two persons to take each other as husband and wife in the presence of one who holds himself out as a minister, and who performs a marriage ceremony, followed by living together, constitutes a legal marriage, holds Judge Gildersleeve of the New York Supreme Court, special term. In the case of Herz vs. Herz (69 N. P. Supp., 478). The rules of a newspaper publisher forbidding his employes to publish any statement reflecting on any one, with out due Investigation, are held by the New York Supreme Court, Appellate division. In the case of O'Brien vs. Bennett (69 N. Y. Supp., 298), not to be admissible in an actioii for libel, as bearing on the question of malice, but are only pertinent to the question whether the article was published without proper inquiry as to its truth. In North Carolina a church member was expelled from his church for vot ing the Democratic ticket. The per sons instrumental in the expulsion were Indicted under the statute provid ing that any person who injures, threatens oppresses, or attempts to in timidate a voter because of his vote at any election shall be guilty of a misde meanor. The indictment was quashed by the -lower court, and the Supreme Court, on appeal, sustained this-action, holding that none of the elements in the statute is embraced in the defend ant's expulsion from the church, since he did not suffer loss of property or gain and was not in any way restrain ed of his liberty or otherwise controll ed in the exercise of his personal con duct. (State vs. Rogers, 38 S. E. Rep., 34.) In the case of Wood v. Gas Co., 61 N. E. Rep. 674, the Supreme Court of Indiana holds that a natural gas com pany which has been permitted by the city to lay Its mains In the streets for the purpose of furnishing the citizens with natural gas, is bound to furnish it to every citizen who makes applica tion therefor and complies with the reasonable regulations of the company, and that the failure of its supply of natural gas is not a sufficient legal rea son for the refusal to supply new cus tomers. The court says that the com pany's powers were granted in consid eration for its engagement to bring to the community a public benefit, and that if the beneficial agency shall fall short, It can make no difference in the right of all to participate in It on equal terms. A Relic of Barbarism. The time-bonored custom of giving the bride her husband's name on the wedding day is a relic of the epoch when woman was a mere appendage. She was an integral portion of'the gens or family, now of her father, now of her brother, now of her husband. Site bad not independent entity of her own. Hence she took over the sur name of her legal protector, giving up that of her father. Names were a la bel indicating ownership, and changed accordingly. This is so true that wherever woman's rights were ac knowledged—as was the case among many wild tribes—the child received the mother's name, or the appellation of her gens, not that of the male par ent. Thus the head of the family has always bestowed his name on the members, and the first outward sign of female emancipation, when it does come, will he the maintenance by young wives of their maiden names, with or without the patronymic of their husbands. Why should it not be so even now? A wife is said to be her husband's half, very often sheHs his better half. Is it not meet that this relation should appear In tbe family name? Tbe dualism of family names is no unheard of innovation. In Bel gium man and wife very often unite surnames when they bind bands and hearts, and "double-barreled" names are as plentiful as blackberries in au tumn. They bave usually a distin guished ring about them as if they were titles of nobility. Sometimes they are alarmingly long; that, however. Is not the fault of the system, but only of the country. Output of Oleomargarine. The number of oleomargarine fac tories in tbe United States is only twenty-four, but tbeir annual output sells for more than $30,000.000.
