It is a face where pain is past, And peace triumphant reigns at last, No shallow peace, no fitful ray Twist raindrops on an April day; But grac# of heaven mado manifest, That time and change cannot molest— The index of a soul at rest. I do not know, I may not trace The story of that pictured face; Whether the world that closed her round Esteemed her fortunate or found Large place for pity in her lot, Or loved her once and then for aught. And was as though it knew her not. Not even the painter’s name is told, The picture is so old, so old; Or, rather, such a little space Is granted to the fairest face, And hand most cunning to portray The beauty of its transient day, Ere death has wrapped it in decay. But yet tl.o legend of the soul Is plainly writ as in a scroll On those pure features gravely sweet, I kuow earth lay beneath her feet; And how she gained the victory May well remain a mystery. The fact is hope to you and me. But when the storm was overpast The sunset gave her light at last, And rising up, ‘‘For me,” she said, “Is conquered life’ssupremest dread." And then she took her quiet way. Bending her steps without dismay Into the twilight Cool and gray. Free as a child upon the road That leads unto a loved abode, Each singing bird, each fragrant flower, One pleasure to the passing hour. Not hastening nor delaying, still, With even steps o’er vale and hill She trod, to do her Father’s will. At leisure for the children s play, Companion for the grave and gay, Yet always with a steady poise, Heart-anchored unto deepest joys Comforting, as herself consoled, With consolations manifold— So lived she till her days were told. So lives she still, and works perchance, By that sweet charm of countenance The work of Cod to you and me. Nor shall the painter thankless be; For he who could that grace, impart Which stamped there features from the heart Was not unworthy of his art. HANGING A PANTHER. Tire Doctor told me the story him self: “It was about twenty yearn ago, the year after l settled on Big OreeK. We had a good many hogs in the range, and as cue came up missing occasionally, the old mau and myself concluded to take n hunt for the bear; as we thought j the thief to be. Oue morning, collect I jUg together ft number of dogs, we j started out to the usual feeding ground ‘ of the hogs. All the swamp at that ! time was a dense canebrake, aud it was ! difficult traveling. After going about, a ; mile, wo separated, each taking part of | the dogs. I hunted over about a mile j more before any trail was struck by the i dogs. Some of the young huundB, as ‘ they were scouring the brake far and | uear. then opened. I was indifferent to j these, but as tho old bear-dog, Caesar, J iet out in a suppressed yelp, more like a growl than anything else, I saw it was i no ordinary game. I shouted them on, and in a few moments they had brought whatever it was to bay. Parting the ! cane right and left, I tore on through it, until I suddenly emerged into a small open space. There the dogs stood around a bending sapling, over which had grown a mans of briars and vines. Approaching them, and glancing up in to a tree, I saw a sight that actually ; made my liair stand upon end; the first I and the "last time that poetical fact ever did occur witu me. » "-e animal, which seemed at least nine feet Jong, and as large in body as a yearling. Day-time as it was, its eyes glowed among the leaves like livid coals of fire. It was slowly and regularly swinging its stump of a tail, and nttering low, fierce growls through its grinning teeth. It was nearly above me, and not twenty feet off. On the impulse of the mo ment, I raised my gun to fire. The cap | failed. I cocked the other hammer. I raised the gun, pulled the trigger, and that cap failed also. Hastily, I reached my hand iuto the pouch for a fresh one. The cap-box was goue. I turned to see what direction it was home; my idea was to go after more caps; in the excite ment of the chase I had lost my courses; I was lost; the situation somehow ex cited my courage; in fact, circum stances seemed to defy my success, and I never could take a dare. I suddenly resolved, unarmed as I was, to have it out with the panther, for, though I iiad never Been one, I knew this was one; so going a little closer, I caught hold of ft vine that ran up the tree and under the panther, and gave it.ft hearty pull. Thus disturbed, he soon began to slip down toward the root, and when in a few feet of the gronud, leaped off and bounded away, with the whole paok of dogs at his heels. This increased my courage. Dropping my gun, I kept nearly at his heels. In less than twenty rods they bayed him again, this time in a comer among some logs. One log lay several feot above him. Cutting a long heavy club, I jumped on this and tried to kill him by striking down on his bead. I might as well have been beat - ing a cotton bale. But it made him run. The next time he just backed up against a tree and stood eyeing the dogs. There we worried him a long time. I would creep up behind the tree and strike him over the back. As he would turn to rush at me, the dogs would snap at his legs sod make him turn to them again. r All this did not do the thing I started out to do—kill the panther. So 1 formed a new plau. I cut a long,tough tie vine, as they are called by the back woods folks, made a running noose, put the noose over a long pole, and slipped it along his back to his head. He was a little frisky about it at first, but I al lowed him to get used to it, then quiet ly dropped it over his head. At every surge forward he drew the knot tighter without knowing it. When I found that the knot was secure and the noose olosely drawn, I threw the loose eud over a low limb and bpgan the execu i tion. Slowly I began to draw him up, | to be sure everything would hold. As I soon as he found himself rising from ■ the ground, he seized hold of the roots | of the tree and tore great pieces of bark j off them before he let go. But I had 1 the leverage on him and I swtiug to the ; vine as for dear life. Now came the I tug of war. He leaped, he screamed, : lie seemed almost to spit fire. But all 1 his leaping only helped mo. At last he 1 swung clear of the ground. The noose was cutting deep into his neck. His | breathing becamo difficult, his eyes ! filled with blood, he lengthened out, | gave a convulsive twitch or two and was ' still. It was several minutes before I ) lowered him to the ground. Limp and dead us he seemed, 1 would not go near him for, strange to say, I just then be gun to get scared. At last Spot, the veriest coward of a dog in Franklin parish, who had been sitting some thir ty yards off, gravely got up, curled his tail, walked and smelt the panther. \ Then I knew he was dead.” i ‘‘How large was the panther, Doc | tor?" “ Seven feet nine inches and weighed : a_ i_i_i »» rffliscclhiiw. “All Talk and no Cider.’' 8am and Ben wero two Indians, both uncommonly fond of cider. The mis sionary had a barrel of flue cider, and he liked to hold religious converse with Bun and Sam. One day Ben said to Sam: “Why do you go to the minis ter’s so often?” “To talk,” was the re^ ply. “And what do you talk?” “Gen-i osis, Matthew, M#rk, Luke, John, Lx- j odas and’Pocraphy.” “Hugh! Say it, over. What else?” “Peter, Timothy, j Jonah, Anauias and I^viticus.” “What else?” “Babylon, Moses, Judas Iscari ot, Saint John and Nebuchadnezzar.” “And then?” “Why then I get a mug of cider and go.” The next Saturday j night found Ben at the minister's. The i latter was busy in a sermon, and was j not talkative. Ben »at till there wa3 a pause, and tbo minister looked up j Then he uttered, with a tone intended ; to be sweetly pleasing and attractive: “Genesis, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, ■ Exodus an' ’Pocraphy.’ The minister stared at him, bat before he thought it; worth while to say anything, his mind j reverted to his sermon. Then Ban pro- j ceeded with sadder earnestness: “Me j say—Peter—Timothy—Jonah—Ananias —’Viticus.” “Ah yes," replied the clergyman, abstractedly; “very true.’ He put away his work with a sigh of re | lief, and then thought of setting to liud ! out what his visitor really wanted. Bon, ! however, anticipated him by uttering i with the determined accent of one who wouldn't be misunderstood or wronged I on any account: “Me Bay Babylon— Moses—Judas ’Scariot—Saint Johu— Nebuchadnezzar!” “Ben, what do you mean?” said the clergyman, at last startled. “Me mean,” said the Indian, with ealm dignity—“me mean—cider!” Metal Productions of the West. Nevada, the Silver State, is pouring out daily *125,000 in silver, $75,000 in ! gold, $8,000 in lead and $2,000 in other ; metals, making a yield of $210,000daily : or $01!,000,000 per annum. California is producing uuiijr $40,000 in gold, $10,000 in silver, $6,000 in quicksilver, $5,000 in lead and cop per, $7,000 in coal, and fully $5,000 in iron, antimony, zinc and other minerals. Its total yield is therefore $75,000, cor responding to* an annual product from its mines of $‘23,500,000. Colorado is producing $15,000 in sil ver everv twenty-four hours, $10,000 in gold, and $4,000 in other minerals, or $26,000 daily, equal to $7,000,000 year ly Utah is credited with a daily out-put of $2,000 in silver, $9,000 in lead and $2,000 in other minerals; $23,000 per day, or $7,900,000 a year. Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and New Mexico together are turning out each day $20,000 in gold. $17,000 in silvei,_ and $1,500 in base metal, giving a total cf $38,000 each day, or $11,550,000 an nually. The Jewish Restoration. A curious rumor is afloat, for which we do not vouch, that the Porte, in its eagerness for money, lias offered to sell the hereditary pashalic of the Holy Land to any candidate accepted by the Jews in return for a loan. The trans action wonld be one of the moat singu lar in history, but it is not beyond the range of possibility. Palestine needs nothing but irrigation and trees, and though the Jews dislike agriculture, fellaheen sufficient might be attracted from Egypt. The restoration of the Jews, with Lord Beaconsfield for first : king, would be an incident romantic; enough to satisfy even the imagination of the author of “Alroy.” “Madam, did yon ever lift a dog by the tail?” “Why, no, yon cruel thing yon.” “I didn’t know, because I just saw yon carry yonr little ohild acrost tbe gutter by one arm. A dog's tail is a great deal stronger than the ligamentp of a baby's shoulder,” John A. Morrell. ! The discovery of anything thatrends ' to throw a light upon the villaiuiea of | John A. Murrell’ and his celebrated band of Western outlaws will always be of interest to the people in this region, where ho operated so boldly aud with ! such signal success. His murders and I dashing deeds of outlawry were so cold blooded and daring that they have be come renowned, and in many portions of the West have settled into traditions that are handed down from father to son. In the. light of the progress of the world, it is a long time since Mur rell live but iu the light of the daring of bis achievements aud the extent of his success, it seems but as a few years sinee he was living and a terror to all honest people. The impression left up on the people of the West is vivid, and to children yet the name of John A. Murrell is one of horror and dark, bloody import. From 1815 to 1830 Mur rell and liis notorious outlaws were a terror to the West. Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky aud Tennessee, Kust era Missouri and Northern Arkansas was the territory upon which he levied tribute, aud which he wrung with a merciless hand from all who came with in his reach. That was the iron age of the West when men were hardy and i likely to carry their lives in their hands. Western men were frontiersmen, used to all danger* and ready to brave all opposition. Murrell must have been a i most remarkable man to have succeeded in establishing among such a people a fraternity of outlaws aud murderers that struck terror to the hearts of even these. In many respects he was a most remarkable man. Possessed of un I doubted courage, he united with it a wonderful judgment of human nature, ; rare powers of mimicry, and a capacity to adapt himself to the varied situations, j 3uck was the merciless character of his 1 reputation that fireside tales of horror have all taken for heroes John A. Mur- j roll and his gang. Notwithstanding1 many of the horrible tales related of him are pure invention, the fact remains that he was ueTer suspected of a geuer-' ous motive. There is nothing recorded of him that serves to lighten up as the romanco of the Robin Hood of Merry England. The impression of Murrell is that he was a most conscienceless and murderous villain, a man who never felt a forgiving impulse. Murder was his trade and robbery bis pastime. Although Murrell himself is particu larly remembered as a land-pirate and murderer, his gang included scouudrels of every description, who operated in every trade. "While Murrell held liis quarters on the Lower Ohio riv«jr, »».l was engaged in murdering flatboatmen and plundering their property, a por: tiou of the band was engaged in the more artistic villainy of counterfeiting. The extent and daring of their opera tions struck terror into Western com merce, for they counterfeited all medi ums of trade, and evidently comprised auloug them some skillful artisans. Tradition has fixed upon Cave-in Rock, near Paducah, as the headquarters of tht counterfeiters. Eating ut Low Eate3. k New York correspondent of the Clicago Tribune says: There is an other little plaee not far from Chatham sheet where the five-cent man could h.it-e what the frequenters there call a “snuare meal” for his moripy. Beef steak, potatoes and bread and butter ara served for four cents. The remain ing penny could be put into a cup of | cofoe, metaphorically speaking, or a piace of pie, according to the desire of its owner. No well regulated panper ca» complain of prices like these. The fo«r cent list includes all the varieties of meats, spring chickens excepted. Soups are from two cents np, according to thickness. A bowl of bread and milk ami water costs two cents. Ovsler stews with four oysters are four cents, or a ; pctiuy an oyster. For something like sijlity cents a capacious party could be g:» and go through the entire bill of fa:e. If he suffered from indigestion the rest of his life, he could still reflect that he got it very cheaply. Adjoining this Arab’s haven is a lodging-house where five cents will procure a place vastly more comfortable than basement stairways. There is very little fresco and oruametation about these places, save what the spiders and other natural artists have done without fee; but the fare and accommodations are princely compared with the profits of tht estab lishments. But there was one thing about making the four-cent rate; it ru iued the five-eont chop housekeeper around thd corner. About twenty years ago a somewhat abusive opponent of the Baptists was publishing a book against thorn at the office of the printer of the act3 of the Mississippi Legislature. By some in advertence the sheets got mixed, nnd before the confusion was detected, sev eral copies of the acts were so bound as to exhibit the following astonishing piece of legislation, the graud result of a thirty years'war agaiust immersion: “Be it enacted by the Senate and Honse of Representatives of the State of Mis sissippi, that bap means to put under water, and lizo to pull out." It is said of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius Autinous—that a single feast at bis villa just outside of Rome cost the enormous sum of over one hundred thousand dollars. The earth aud the air, and the sea had been scoured for delicacies, and a dish of nightingale’s tongus made costly by the sweet singing of the birds was among the extravagant menu. Blub glass hats are advertised for sale in several places. §he girt side. Affection. Affection is not half so hardly a plant | as usually thought. Inasmuch as it is native to every soil, ami grows in other wise barren spots, many persona, par ticularly men, believe no absence of dew, or sun, or rain, will make or mar it. Trne, it flourishes under the snow of adversity, and the storm of opposi tion cannot hear it down. Bnt when it has ouco struggled through these— has pnt forth its rich, green leaves and unfolded its delicate blossoms to the wel come morning or the radiant noon—it needs gentle nourishmentjand constant care. Hardy as it seems, it is as sensi tive as the mimosa. The foot of strangers may trample it into the earth; and yet it will hud again with new beauty and fresher fragrance. But if the familiar hand that has planted and tended it, neglects or touches it rudely, its leaves droop ou the instant, and it is never itself again. It may not die, for its root is deep and strong, but the dullest, eye can see that it has lost its olden savor, and that for it the fair face of the overarching heavens is"'hanged. Would that everyjone understood this. Then the garden of onr life would be fairer, and the varied val'ey of our ex perience would he greeuer. Affeotion is not the hawthorn with all its sweetness. Nor is it the humble violet blowing under the hedge and wasting its odors ou the careless air. No more is it the flaring peony, de manding attention, and displaying iis scentless hues to every gaze .It is luth ther the firm but unobtrusive eglantine, | growing wild and yielding to culture ! an well full r,f nerfume and full of thorns, delighting the sense when it is gathered carefully, and wounding the hand that seizes it rudely; typifying beauty and tenderness, passion and pain. So vigorous and even robust is it, th«t no tempest breaks, no lightning blunts it. And still its dainty petals of pink shrink beneath’tbe zephyr's kiss, and fall before the earliest frost. How often is affection blighted by the negleot of those who should cherish aud have cherished it! How are its sustaining tendrils broken and its soft ness crushed by the hand that has for gotten gentleness from over usage? All along the highways and byways of life, plants of affection might be discovered drooping, withered, dyiug, if we but saw them through the glass of sympa thy, and with the cunning of spiritual insight. To drop metaphor, a very common peculiarity of our nature is to under value what we possess, ana to tong rar that which is beyond onr reach. This is truer of the affections than of ought else. Women love for the sake of loving; men for tue sake of being loved; aud they weary of the affection so generously given, because they be lieve it wholly secured. The difference between lovers aud husbands lies been the theme of “satirists” from time im memoral. The former are in doubt, the latter are convinced of the affection they have sought. Perfect [security begets carelessness: carelessness neg lect; neglect indifference. Woman will love aud be loyal ts death, if mau will but foster her love aud loyalty, instead of killing it by inches with seeming nothings, that, in accumulation are as the rock of Gibral tar. Believe—oh, careless son of over-faith 1— that it is much to gain love, but that it is more to keep it; that to win a heart involves a solemn re sponsibility, and demands its anxious ami chivalrous keeping, till the end of all things comes to you! When you find u soul, garner it np as a sacredness and visit it with all the comforts and tendt messes that belong to you. Sur round it with yonr worship, and sacri fice all selfishness at its 6hrine; for of all the excellences and beuisons of life. love is chiefest, purest, best. Have no dread of being deemed “sen timental,” since sentiment is among the fineness of spirit that the rude world is always tending to destroy. In terweave the love you have gaiued with the love you bear. Braid them toge ther, like precious braids of tenderness and strength, of understanding and sympathy, of sweetness and truth of trust and protection, of perfect giving, and perfect loyalty: and the inter mingled strand—the finest chords of being—will sound, when touched, wiih unvarying music. How We Take Cold. It is one of the facts best known to science that, when a port of the outer surface of the body has been exposed long to the cold, the greatest risk is run in trying suddenly to|re-induce warmth. To become thoroughly chilled and then to pass into a very warm atmosphere, guch os is found near a fire, results in a dangerous reaction which, a few hours later, may cause pneumonia or bronchitis, or both diseases. The ca pillaries of the lungs become engorged, and the circulation becomes static, so that there must be a reaction of heat inflamatioh before recovery oan occur. Common colds, says a contemporary, are taken in the same way; the exposed mucous surface of tbs nose and throat are subjected to a chill, they are sub jected to heat; then there follows con gestion, reaction of heat pouring ont of fluid matter, and the other local phe nomena of catarrh. -—i«»•«*-— Prrz Haicinthb was a few days ago stopped on the streets in Geneva by a woman of rauk who abused him most violently, and, woman-like, got all the more angry when he refused to answer. “Madame,” said the ex-priest, polite ly, "respect is doe to wopian and pity to fools," and he went on bis way tran quilly. Perfect Faith. John B. Gough related the followingj pathetic epiaode iu a lecture at St. Lous reticently: A atot£ was told of a streut boy in i London wbo bad bad both legs broken !1 by a uray passing over them. He was [1 laid uway iu one of the beds of a bos- ' i pital to die, and another little creature j I of the same class was laid tiear by, j; picked up with famine fever. The lat' ' i ter whs allowed to iie down by the side i of tfie little crushed boy. He crept up | i to him and said: ;< “Bobby, did you never hear about,! Jesus?” j I “No, 1 uever heard of him.” , * “Bobby, I went to mission school;' once, and they told us that Jesus would |' take you to,heaven when you died, nud ,! youM uever have hunger any more, and 1 no more pain, if you axed him.” “I could't ask such a great big gen-! tlemaa as he is to do anything for me. j1 He wouldn’t stop to speak to a boy like 1 me.” “But he'll do all that if you ax him.” 1 “How can I ax him if 1 don’t kuow ' where ho lives, and liovr could I get * there when both my legs are broke?” “Bobby, they told me nt missiou j1 school as how Jesus passed by. Teacher : says as be.goes around. How do you , know but what he might come around j to this hospital this very night? You'd know him if you was to see him.” “But 1 can’t keep my eyes open. Idy legs feel so awful bad. Doctor says I'll die.” “Bobby, hold up your baud, and he’ll j kuow what you want when lie passes; by.” They got the hand up. It dropped, i Tried a n. It slowly fell back. Three tlnwie 1,*> <rnt nn the little hand, only to let it fall. Bursting into tears, he said:! “I gives it up.” “Bobby, lend me yer hand; put yer| elbow on my piller; I can do without i it.” So one hand was propped tip. And when they came in the morning the boy lay dead, his hand still propped tip j for Jesus. You may search the world i j aud you cannot find a grander illustra '< tion of simply trust than that of the lit-; J tie boy who had been to mission school i bnt once. A New Game. A man came into a restaurant last | night, aud mounting a high stool lean ed over the counter and ordered a por ter house steak with eggs on the side, and some ale and oysters to begin on. In about half an hour he had fiuished his repast aud was beginning todeliber ate on what kind of desert he would wir,.l up on, wlian « man walked in, and, tapping him on the shoulder, remarked: ' “Is your name Billy ilicks?” “Yes, that’s my name,” said the man on the stool, as the hand stole down to his hip pocket, fumbling for the handle of a barker; “what doyen want?” “We had a little trouble once before in White l’iue, and now I gness I’ve got you dead to rights,” continued the t new-comer, pulling out a large-sized | six shooter. “If you'll step into the street and pace ofi' your distance, I’m your man,” said the feeder, who had just finished ihis pie, and whipping out a rovolver, he sprang off his perch and rushed after the other into the street. The frightened restaurant man got down behind the counter and bent his ear to listen to the shots and the rush of the mob: but he didn't hear anything unusual, and in about five minutes he recollected that there was $2.50 owing on the meal. Then he went out ou the sidewalk to investigate. “Was there a row out there a few minutes ago?” he inquired of a star gazer on the sidewalk. “Didn't see any. I vo been here for the last half hour or so." “See two fellows with ulsters and re volvers come out?” “Yes, they was talkin' about swap-] pin’ guns, and they’re over across the way now, takiu’ a drink." The restaurant man went back to clear up the dirty dishes and reflect on his darnphoolisliness. A Maid’s New Shoes. Yesterday, on Post street, the atten tion of a Chronicle reporter was called to a largo attendance on the sidewalk, and approaching hastily, be was aston - ished to see a well-known and celebrat ed beauty of San Francisco who was being fitted to a new pair of shoes. To hear the undisguised admiration with which every part of the maiden’s limbs that were coyly shown was greeted by the crowd suggested the truth of the re mark that has often been made against the lack ol delicacy shown in our Western admiration. “What a foot, exclaimed one. “And that ankle," ob served another. “And those clean-cut limbs," ejaculated the other; and the object of their fervid remarks did not appear in the slightest degree discon certed by this outspoken admiration. At last the pretty, gray-looking shoes were adjusted to a nicety, and a gen tleman detached himself from the crowd, examined them with a critical eye and footed tho bill. And then they took tlieir departure together. It was Bndd Doble and the Goldsmith Maid, the latter clad in plaid, with a magni ficent black trail without an “r” in it. —San Francisco Chronicle. A Gebmajj looked up at the sky, and remarked: “I guess a leedle it vill rain somedime pooty qneek.” “Yees do, eh? ’ replied an Irishman. “What business have yees to purtend to know about Amerikeu weather, ye furriner.” In what brauoh of education do swine excel?

And when fou pay them the money do not adviso hem to buy a pig or a sheep with it as many thoughtless farmers do, nor to lay it up, but tell them to subscribe to some good papers and magazines, not trashy stuff, but worthy publications, aud then establish a reading oircle in the family, where each in his turn shall read aloud to the others of an evening. Buy good furniture for your houses iustead of buying fanoy guns or dogs, or loaning your money or increasing the amount of your laud. Make tbo borne comfortable and attractive and rest as sured the children will regard it as ths dearest spot ou earth, and they will never wish to leave it. Maintain a good garden, remember ing that if the garden is well cared for, aud its product properly used, it will pay better than any other part of the farm of its dimensions. Children love good things to eat, and remember for i lifetime the wonderful pies and pas try, the prodigious dumplings, the iplendid garden vegetables, the magnif oent apples and other fruits of the old farm home. Will Keeping Sheep Pay. A Writer in the National Live Stock Internal gives his idea on this subject: Sheep pay bettor than any other itock, no matter what the kind of stock s. I have bean feeding some three liundred head of cattle, and I am satis fied, that even with the most favorable :oudition for selling, when the time :omes, I shall make a great deal mors money, dollar for dollar on the money nvested iu sheep, than I shall make on he capital invested in cattle. I have ibout six hundred sheep, running with out any particular attention or care, and rave sold $1,400 worth of wool of this Fear's clip, and have two hundred and fifty lambs besides. I do not think it possible to have done so well on at squal amount of capital invested in cat tle. One great advantage sheep bare jver stock is, they never die of cotta • gious diseases which they contract 1’bey get the scab or foot-rot or some thing else, and if unchecked it gets them in bad oondition, and would ulti mately, perhaps, kill them. But the very worst contagious diseases to whioh sheep are subject, give the owuer ample time to treat the affected animals, and the diseases are generally of a charac ter which yield readily to treatmec* But a man may have a lot of hogs, and feed them hundred of bushels of cc.ru daily, and about the time the bottom of his cribs are neared, and he is think - ingof selling, some disease breaks on* among them—no one knows what it is or what to do for it-—one animal after another following iu rapid succession is affected and the greater portion die. I 1_1-- trt Ka V0II-II1W1 ruined by the appearanoe of • conti. gious disease of thie character. Sheer, are happily exempt from such a rapid and fearful mortality. Besides when a sheep dies—and they will die some times—his pelt is sufficient to pay for his ke.eping since the last shearing to his death. It makes no difference wher. he dies, or what kills him, the sheep never dies in debt. Southern Cotton Manufacturers. While the busy times at Fall River and other manufacturing centres in the the North are absorbing attention, shrewd mon there cast an occasional glance at what is going or in tho South, as reports continue to reach them of onr rapid progress in the production of cot ton goods. Iu former times it was the custom, ou making up the full return.; of the cotton crop, at the end uf the season, to give a mere nominal guess at the amount of raw material consumed in the Southern States, and for the last few years the variation in the figures has been very slight, whereas the actu al facts show that the movement has been on the increase. Almost every week some new mill is ereoted or some old establishment remodelled and re vived with fresh capital. The State of Georgia seems to attract more attention than any other region, and the goods of the Augusta and Atlanta mills com mand remunerative prioes in the New York market.—Savannah JVsiee. _ ,m, , A TOUTHFcr, granger about to be chastised by his father the other day, called for his grandfather to peotert i him from the middle man.
