At a plantation called Fermlna, where the main trunk of the railroad has a tun nel, eight feet of water remained on tbe ground five days after the hurricane. The low-lylng lands were overrun to the height of the house tops, and on the plantations only the chimneys were to be seen above the water. The Inundation covers as area or about fortv miles.

There are many Indications In England or the probability of a large demand there this winter for American wheat- A writer in tho London Tfmes says that last year the British wheat crop was 22 per cent, below an average, while this year It Is 11 per cent, below. Tbe amount this year available for consumption, after deducting the wheat necessary to,be retained for seed, is stated at about, 72,000,000 bushels, tbe average yield per acre being 25 bushels this year. The requirements or the population for the year are estimated at 184,000,009 bushels. Therefore Hi, 000,001 bushels must be lmjiorted, an amount about equal to tbe imports or foreign .wheat into England daring the past year. in tbe wheat trade tho fact Is demonstrated In England th at wheatean be Import ed cheaper than it can be grown. Each year there Is a diminution In the acreage sown. Thus the increased yield fier acre this year compared with last year is en Irely offset by the rednced surface planted in wheat, which is but 3,114,556 acres. England sow looks to the United States as her chief source of supply for, foreign wheat, of which baa Francisco sends her probably the greatest amount of any single port. If we are able to grow breadstons aad provi sions for England, and supply ber more cheaply than she can do It at home, it gives us a vantage ground. held by -no other nation. What we do ior her we are doing for France, Germany and other-European countries, and so long as we can keep out of foreign quarrels, and also keep the peace at borne, this trade is sure to greatly bene lit us. -- The Careful Man. Soon after noon yesterday a stranger entered a Woodward avenue hardware store and asked If tbey kept shingle nails there. Ilejng Informed that they had a doieu kegs on hand, he further inquired, 'Are they genuine shingle nails or only imitations?" "They are sblngle-nalls, of course." "Let mo see them." A handful was placed on the coaster before him, and he took several nails to the door, where he conld get a stronger light. After scanning them thoroughly he tested two or three between his teeth, tried to bend them be. tween his fingers, and said: "Well, they seem to be all right, and I'll take five pounds. Idon't wast to appear captions, bat I bought some shlngle-nalls along here somewhere about a month ago, carried them home, and what do you suppose they turned out to bet" "Six penays" answered the clerk. "No, sir; they were shoe pegs, sir." "That was strange," mned the clerk. "And another time when 1 ordered shingle Balls," continued the stranger, "the elerk put up four store-handles, three nutmeg graters and a coffee-mill.

To tbe thoughtful, the moral consequences ot tension and hurry are very saddening, to tbe physician their results are a matter of profound concern, their grave evils come under his da'ly observation. No evolution of force can take place with nndife rapidity without damage to the ma chine in which the transformation is effected. Express railway stock has a much shorter term of use than that reserved for slower traffic. The law Is universal that Intensity and duration of ac tion are Inversely proportioned. It is therefore no matter ot surprise to find that the human ner vous system is no exception to the rule. Tho higher salubrity ot rural over urban life is not entirely a matter of fresh air and e terclse. Rural life Involves leisure and pause Is work, which are very essential to the maintenance of the nervous system In a state of due nutrition. Unremitting snasmsoon ceases altogether. The tension of life produces weakness at the very place where sirengmismosi neeaeu. me aamag aonc to the health or the most valuable part of tbe com munlty, tho best trained thinkers, most nsefal workers, is incalculable.

The machinery and organizing tho work ot a community had to be rigid aad inflexible, and Is the strain Involved la bringing a changing orgamlsm Into harmony with a maehiue, the former must inevitably suffer.
