Tho French drink Absintho is im
ported extensively iu this country. A
New York paper describes ita effects
in this way. "It is mucb moro per
ilous, as well as deleterious, than any
ordinary liquor, Its encroachments
aro scarcely perceptible. A regular
absiutbo drinker seldom perceives that
ho is dominated by its I nlefttl influ
ence until it is too lato. All of a
sudden he breaks down; his nervous
system fa .destroyed; bis brain is inop
erative; 'his will is paralyzed; he ua
mere wreck-; there it no hope of hi re
covery. Victims of intemperance of
tho common sort frequently relorm;
but tho absinthe drinker, after he Inn
gone to a pertain length, very rarely
does, or cau throw olF tho fatal fasci
nation. Tho moro intellectual a tunu
is, the more readily tho habit fastotiB
itself upoiM him." This boats ,bad

"Yes, sir," returned tho Dakota
man, ns tho crowd of agriculturist
seated themselves around a littlo ta
bic, "yes, air, wo do things on rnthor
n siznblo scale. I've seen a man on
ono of our big farms start out in tho
spring nnd plough a straight furrow
until fall. Then bo turned round nnd
harvested back. Wo bavo so mo big
farms up there, gentlemen. A friend
oi tnino owned ono on which ho bad
to give a mortgage, nnd the morlgngo
was due on ono end beforo they could
get it recorded at tho other. You
ice it was laid oil In counties."
Thcro was a murmur of astonish
ment, and tho Dakota man continued:
"I got a letter from a man who
lives In my orchard, just beforo 1 left
home, and it had boon three weeks
getting to tho dwelling-house, altho'
it had traveled day and night.''
"Distances aro pretty wido, up
there, ain't they ?" inquired otio.
"llcasonably, reasonably," replied
tho Dakota man. "And tbo worst of
it is, it breaks up families to. Two
years ogo I saw n wholo family pros
trated with grief. Women yelling,
howling, and docs barkinc. Ono of
my men bad his camp truck packed
on seven fourmu!o teams and he was
around bidding every body goodbye."
"Where was ho going?" asked a
Gravescnd man.
"lie was going half way across tho
farm to feed tho pigs," replied tho
Dakota man.
"Did be ever get back to his fam
ily?" "It isn't time for him yet," return
ed tho Dakota gentleman. "Up there
wo send youug married couples to
milk tho cows, and their children
bring homo the milk."
"Do you lovo me, Gertrude?"

The New Hoop-skirt.
The voxed question of crinoletto has
been partially solved by the introduc
tion of n singlo baud oi steel intro
duced into the voluminous folds of
tho back breadths of a skirt so as to
unite them uud give tho amplitude of
an nntiquo toumiere. Although ap
parently simple, tho adjustment of
this incipient, hoop is difficult, for the
graceiul fall of tho drapery is entirely
dependent ou tho correctness of its
position. Hence, in this case, sius ot
omission should be lightly condemned,
for a negltct to comply with tho sug
gestions of fashion is rather praiee
worthy than otherwiso, when tho
graceful olements of a lady's attire
may bo imperiled by faulty crinoline.

mako uo chaugo iu tho law relative to
tho salaries of Commonwealth's At
torneys. Tho present arrangement Is
the best for tho successful prosecution
of crimiuals. There is already in
Kentucky too great a disposition to
icnore crime. In a criminal case fre
quently tho sympathies of everybody
but tho Commonwealth 8 Attorney are
for tbo criminal. Hilt for his thirty
per cent, of tho fine, probably the

i..n h. i.. r.,il ,
Philadelphia to reinforce tbe market for
sweets by mauufaqturiug glucose out
of cassava, a root of the huphorbia

South America and the West Indies.
It is claimed that seven hundred

produco thirty pounds of glucose.
This yield is greatly in excess of the
yield from ludia com, aud the sweet

Albert Hern, n young printer of
Pottsville, Pa., inspired by low for a
young lady to do something to tatter
his condition, went, several years ago,
on a prospecting tour to uoiorauo.
Ho was snowed up for sovcral months
in the Gunnison country, and never
saw n human face. In tho spring he
continued work on a claim he called
tho Eva Veil, but the little money ho
K)meid was soon exhausted, and he
was hopeless, when a party of New
York capitalists came along and of
fered $20,000 for a two-thirds interest
in the miuc, they agreeing to work it
and givo him n third of the profits.
Ho joyfully agreed, and in a week's
timo he was on his way to his former
homo to clnim tho hand of his sweet
heart. Hardly had he been comforta
bly settled when he was offered $80,
000 for his remaining ono-third inter
est in tho Eva Bell, so that his mining
speculation yielded him $100,000. A
Philadclphinn has had a similar expo
rieuco of sudden good fortune when
reverses had made him hopeless. He
had worked a claim until be had spent
all that ho possessed, and returned to
Philadelphia in timo to witness the
constable disposing of his household
effects. The next day ho received a tele
gram offering him $50,000 for his in
terest in a mine that ho thought was
worthless. He is not pressed for
money now.
Eight Hundred Tons of Silrer.
Tho counting of the coin in the
Sub-Treasury in New York, attending
its transfer to the now Treasurer, Mr.
Acton, affords an impressive illustra
tion of the extent to which the vaults
aro encumbered with silver dollars of
recent coinage. The quantity of sil
ver included in the transfer is stated
as eight hundred tous avoirdupois,
nearly two-thirds of which consist of
these dollars, the rest being subsidiary
pieces of fractional denominations.
Estimating tho weight of a silver dol
lar roughly as an ounce, eight hun
dred tons are twenty-five million, six
hundred housand dollars.

An Absent-Minded Gentleman.
A good joke is told of ono of the
business men at Montpellcr, who
stepped Into tho post office the other
forenoon, leaving his horso outsido.
On coming out ho walked a short dis
tance with a gentleman, conversing
on business, after which ho started for
his place of business, and nt noon
went home. On reaching there he
proceeded to his stable to care for his
horse, and was somewhat alarmed to
find the animal missing, nndofcourto
supposed it had been stolen. He im
mediately sought a sheriff, whom he
dispatched in ono direction, sent a
man to Barre to bead tho thief offin
that direction, and late in tho after
noon was rushing to the printing oflico
to get out posters for bis apprehen
sion, when a moments reflection
brought tho truo state of tho case to
his mind, whereupon ho proceeded to

animal bitched to a ring ou the oppo

dently started for home, but had been
