Swency, a millionaire mine owner of Spokane, made himself decidedly pop ular last' night on the Great Northern Oriental Limited, when he bought all (he vacant berths in a first-class car, twelve in number, and then went to the tourist cars, where there was so many passengers that many did not have seats and filled the berths with women and children whom he found had no sleeping accommodations. Mr. Swency was on his way home from a business trip to the east. A. At the end of that time the aviary was left open one day. The pigeon flew out, mounted high in the air, flew about for a moment as if to find the points of the compass and started in a straight line for Paris.

There it was recog nized, and, Its case being brought to public attention, it was honored as a patriot returned from foreign captiv i ity. It remained at the Taris Jardin d'AccHmation until it died in 1878. A Personal Application.

A story is told of a French carrier pigeon which was captured by the German soldiers during the siege of Paris in 1870. The bird was being carried in a balloon from Paris to some point in the country, whence it was expected to return to Paris with a message. It was taken to the Ger man headquarters and presented to the commander, Prince Frederick Charles, who sent it to his mother in Germany. Here it was placed in a splendid roomy aviary and carefully fed and nourished but, although It was kept here, living in the lap of royal iuxury for four years, the French pigeon did not forget its fatherland.

The Forum recently received a let ter from B. Harrison of Burrlngbar, Tweed River, N. 8. W., Australia, calling attention to a grass which was being very succe-v fully grown in that colony, and also enclosing a smalt sample ot the seed. The letter wait accompanied by an article, published in The Tweed Times, from Mr. Har rison, which was favorably commented upon by the editor of that paper. Thinking that it would be wise to have the subject Investigated before advocating the sowing of this seed here, The Forum referred the matter to the agricultural college and experi mental station In this city, and Pres ident Worst turned the matter over to Professor Bolley of the department of biology and experiment station bot any and the professor reports as fol lows concerning the cultivation of Paspalum Dilatatum, which Is the botanical name of the grass. Fargo, Nov. 2.—To The Forum: I have read carefully the article which you enclosed by B. Harrison of Bur rlngbar, Tweed River, N. S. W., Aus tralia on The Cultivation of Paspalum Dilatatum. This grass Is a southern grass. It is found native in our southern states almost across the continent. It ip evident that it is not strictly hardy for normal regions, else it would have been found in some of our northern states as a native. I find very little mention of it in our experimental sta tion literature, showing that It has not attracted much attention in this country. It is a grass, in appearance, very much like a type of millet indeed, very much like our ordinary barnyard grass. I find that it is being tried at the South Carolina station and has had some considerable recommenda tion as a grass for that region. Ac cording to the description It takes charge of the ground very much in the manner that brome grass occupies the soil through the means of running root-stalks. As ihe matter now stands. I could not recommend the grass for this region without trial. I have laid away the small sample of seed which accompanied the letter and will put it into, the soil next spring. There are good paddocks of this grass on the Tweed that have been in existence for the past ten or twelve years. It has been known to yield, at the Wollongbar experimental farm, on cultivated ground, when four months old, twenty-two tons of green fodder, and several successive cuttings of over thirteen tone each per acre, within the year. Mr. Varley, editor of The Clarence and Richmond Examiner, says of this f?niss: "it is a wonderful fodder plant. Given a sufficiency of moisture ft will flourish in all classes of soil. I have seen it luxuriating in swamps, with water over its crown, in the Big Scrub in Its glory, on the sandy bar ren wastes of the seashore, but no where have I seen It grow with great er luxuriance than on the forest ridges. A few years ago the Rich mond was threatened by a weed called the Mullumbimby Couch. Cattle fell away on it, and many died. Since the introduction of paspalum this weed has had notice to quit. As in quality, so in growth, as compared with other grasses—it is paspalum first, the rest! nowhere. An energetic man, backed up by paspalum dilatatum and cows, is almost sure of success. Take the Big Scrub of the Richmond as a case in point. Fifteen years ago this mag nificent tract of country was practi cally in its primeval state. It was equally provided then, as now, with steam communication to Sydney. No point of it was more remote than fifteen miles from water carriage. Yet no progress was vllsble. Five years later the railway from Lismore to the Twed was opened. From that day the jungle began to/"disappear, and, today the whole face of the country! is altered, paspalum dilatatum beingj substituted for ^crub, and dairy cows' for paddymelons. One butter factory alone which opened with the advent of the railway, has increased its out put from one ton a month to 350 tons a month. A herd of cows will easily average £10 per head per annum. One farmer (resident in the Coramba district) published his receipts #Jr one year which showed a credit bal ance of £00. His area was only 100 Ti-- V.-.r Henry L. Bolley. In this connection it Is of Interest to make some extracts of the letter of Mr. Harrison concerning the im portant place this grass has made for itself in Australia and It should be noted that the editor of The Tweed Times very highly commends the writer of the letter as one who has done great service to the stockmen of the colony—so great, In fact, that he has secured the patronage of the governor general, Lord Northcote, and the editor has no doubt but the grass will, be found of equal value In Ameri ca and India. The extracts from Mr. Harrison's letter are as follows: After about twelve years' experience paspalum dilatatum has become the favorite grass with the farmers on the north coast of New South Walgg, Australia, and to the dairymen es pecially it has proved a veritable mine of wealth and can be converted, tf necessary, into hay, ensilage or chaff. It produces an immense amount of succulent herbage, which is eagerly relished by all stock: grows from five to ten feet high: bears a large quantity of seed, and can readily be disposed of at a good price: and thrives well almost anywhere. No other grass can equal it for rapid growth, quantity and quality of herbage, and its adapt ability to almost any soil or climate and the person who introduces this grass into this district will prove a benefactor not only to the locality in which he resides but the country gen erally. Any land on which paspalum is established is worth from £10 to £20 per acre. Once established, this grass remains permanent for all time, and saves the farmer from the great annual expense entailed in the purchase and cultiva tion of other grass sods. v.- v.

When a laxative is needed the remedy which is given to them to cleanse and sweeten and strengthen the internal organs on which it acts, should be such as physicians would sanction, because its component parts are known to be wholesome and the remedy itself free from every objectionable quality. The one remedy which physicians and parents, well-informed, approve and recommend and which the little ones enjoy, because of its pleasant flavor, its gentle action and its beneficial effects, is Syrup of Figs- and for the same reason it is the only laxative which should be used hy fathers and mothers. Syrup of Figs is the only remedy which acta gently, pleasantly and naturally without griping, irritating, or nauseating and which cleanses the system effectually, without producing that constipated habit which results from the use of the old time cathartics and modern imitations, and against which the children should be ao carefully guarded. If you would have them grow to manhood and womanhood, strong, healthy and happy, do not give them medicines, when medicines are not needed, and when nature needs assistance in the way of a laxative, give them only the simple, pleasant and gentle—Syrup of Figs. Its quality is due not only to the excellence of the combination of the laxative principles of plants with pleasant aromatic syrups and juices, but also to our original method of manufacture and as you value the health of the little ones, do not accept any of the substitutes which unscrupulous dealers sometimes offer to increase their profits.
