Ind., Doc. 24 Despite the fact that prices are lower tbau they have been for borne time, farm ers all over the country are disposing o their hogs in large numbers. The marketing of the animals just now is not on account of a need for money, hut because hog cholera is prevalent in many sections of the county and farmers are getting rid of their stock before the disease gets into their herds and causes a total loss. In both the southern and northern parts of the county cholera prevails sind many hogs have died. Those farm ers who have the cholera within a mile of them are selling their hogs, fearing a visitation of the disease and a repetition of the heavy loss of several years ago. The disease seems to have gained' a foothold just at the time when the farmers were congrat ulating themselves that the county would be free of it at least for the winter and considerable uneasiness is felt. Many of the hogs being sold are not yet ready to market and the farm ers will lose considerable by having to sell them at this time. NEW CASTLE GETS FACTORY. Box Plant Expects to Produce in Jan uary.

Capture Him While He Is Still Young, Docile and Plastic. Because it Is the duty of every wo man to marry some man it by no means follows that she is deprived of the privilege of making acute discrim ination. On the contrary, to fn!SH' ber mission as completely as possible she should exercise the greatest care in selecting a mate. Time was when she had no say in the matter, and in some countries she has little or none today, but in this happily civilized land she still possesses and will undoubtedly hold for all time the right first to choose and then ensnare. It is a no ble prerogative one. in our judgment, have observed, It should be exercised with caution. Let nothing be left to chance, as Plato would have had it when he decreed that pairing should be done by lot. While not overnice, be at least particular in order that the one chosen may feel honored by the distinction conferred upon him and so be the more readily Induced to show his undying gratefulness. Much that was thought and written years ago on how to choose a wife was good enough for the time, but the re- her for whom thenceforth he must and should toil. George Harvey in North American Review.

Charm Cheaply Broken. The bride was showing off the con- tents of her china closet when a little dish slipped through her fingers and smashed on the floor.

She looked ruefully at her pretty dishes and glassware. A few minutes later she was called to the kitchen, and while there the visitor heard two more smashes.

WORTHLESS TESTIMONY. The Way a Keen Irish Lawyer Wor ried Anthony Trollops. Among the stories In "Pages From n Adventurous Life." by J. E. Pres-ton-Muddock, is one that Lord Alver- stone was wont to tell with apprecia- ! tion. In a postoflice prosecution at ; Hertford assizes a clever Irish bar- j rister appeared for the defendant, who was a poor letter carrier guilty of some Irregularity. Among the witnesses was Anthony Trouope. tnen a government postofflce inspector. After he had glv-1 en his testimony be. was handed over , to the lawyer for the defense for cross j examination. j "What are you?" demanded the keen Irishman in a severe and command- tag tone sonorous with a rich brogue. "An official in the postofflce." an swered Trollope. somewhat astonished by the lawyer's brusqueness. "Anything else?" demanded the cross examiner, with a snap. "Yes; an author." This a little proudly. "What is the name of your last book?" " 'Barchester Towers.' " "Now, tell me. is there a word of! truth in that book?" "Well, it is what is generally called, a work of fiction." i "Fiction!" with a scornful curl of the lip. "Fiction! That is to say. there isn't a word of truth in it from beginning to end?" j "I I am afraid If you put it that way there isn't," stammered Trollope in an embarrassed way. With a triumphant air. the lawyer turned to the jury. ' "Gentlemen." he exclaimed, "how can you possibly convict a man on the evidence of a witness like this, who here in this court of justice tin blushingly confesses that he has writ ten a book in which there is not one word of truth T' Trollope had fallen squarely Into the pit digged for him by his unscrupulous cross examiner. A Grateful Lion A lieutenant of an English regiment stationed in Africa was hunting for big game. He was fearless, but for some reason he hesitated to shoot at the great lioness that approached. Nearer and nearer she came and was limping. The big hearted soldier took : out the thorn that he saw was in her ( foot, and she limped away gratefully, ; and the Britisher forgot the incident. Not so with her ladyship. She return- ed the next nbrht. looked over the ros- ter of the regiment and ate every ofli- cer that ranked the lieutenant, who. of course, by her act of gratitude was made a colonel.

Y.. writes: "Before I started to uso Fo- ley's Kidney Cure I had to get up from , twelve to twenty times a night, and I was all bloated up with dropsy and my eyesight was so impaired I could scar- cely see one of my family across the , room. I had given up hope of living, j when a friend recommended Foley's ; Kidney Cure. One 50 cent bottle; worked wonders and before I had tak- en the thIrd bottle the dropsy had gone, as well as all other symptoms of Bright's disease." A. G. Luken & THE WATERMELON. Not What It-Used to Be, at Least In the Eating Thereof. In the old days, when the world was much better than it is now, there were good watermelons. As we remember them, the water melons of twenty-five or thirty or thirty-five years ago were huge affairs. They were none of your overgrown cucumber effects of today, but were great big round fellows, and the out side was a dark green. It was the same shade of green as the reflection of the trees in a swimming hole. And when you sunk the knife into it the rind ripped aud cracked for two Inches ahead of the blade, and the melon just laughed itself open. Hold on- You didn't use a knife. You lifted the melon above your head and dropped it to the ground, and it burst open, as .red as a rose and a hundred times as sweet. And you ate nothing but the heart just the chunky red heart. Nowadays the marketman shows you on oblong affair done in pale green and greenery-yallery stripes, with a white blotch on the underside, that he calls a watermelon. And you cut it into slices like bologna sausage and eat it with a fork, like pie. And you have forgotten whether a watermelon goes pllnk-plink or plunk plunk when it is ripe, because it doesn't make any difference now. Wilbur D. Nesbit in Chicago Post. A Real Wonderland. South Dakota, with its rich silver mines, bonanza farms, wide ranges aui strange natural formations, is a veritable wonderland. At Mound City, in the home of Mrs. E. D. Clapp. a wonderful case of healing has lately occurred. Her son seemed near death with lung and throat trouble.

Hero of Alexandria, about 100-150 B. C. havinsr constructed the first steam engine known to history. The first modern reference to steam as a pro pelling force is In Nye's "Art of Gun nery,"' 1647. The first successful at tempt to use steam in modern times was made by the Marquis of Worces ter, 1655. But the steam king above all others, the man to whom we owe the first solidly practical advance in the application of steam, was James Watt, 1769. ! SMALL COUNTRIES ARE SAID TO BE OUTSTRIPPING THIS NA TION IN SEABOARD IMPROVE MENTS. Washington, Dec. 21 If the South American countries view wuh awed surprise the great fighting fleet now bearing down along the eastern coast, the officers and men of the powerful naval aggregation also likeiy will open their ecs at the wonders of the South American shores. For the greatest squadron of modern battleships the world ever saw will find safe anchor age in harbors worthy of its reception. Instead of into shallow indentations m the coast line, Admiral Evans will t- r, "uses of his sixteen enHr.es. of destruction into deep water ports in Vvl.-ln tnc uUj line HI t-Uc. The cruise thus will be one of edu cation for Americans, as well as fur nishing evidence to the world at large that this nation is capable of uphold ing its honor on the high seas. There is a rooted idea in the minds of peo ple of the United States generally that South America is a benighted coun try, with small enterprise and fewer amabitions. The impression is en tirely wrong. It was brought prominently to the attention of the American people this mouth, that the Latin countries cf the Western, hemisphere are in many ways outstripping the United States. John Barrett, director of the bureau of American republics, in tue course of an address before the recent couven- tion of the National Rivers and Har bors congress here, said: "The one central though I wish to bring out in this address is both re- home of revolutions, are spending more money and following a more sys tematic plan at this moment for the permanent improvement of their riv ers and harbors than is the United States. In other words, five of our twenty sister nations, namely Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Mexico have now under way harbor and chan nel construction for which direct ap- propriations of 000 have been not less than $100,000, made, and these same governments announce that they have only begun a vast scheme of improve- ments which they contemplate." At Rio Jeneiro, the capital of Brazil, and boasting a population of STO,0, the Brazilian government is spending fLM.OXMXX) in making harbor improve ments and constructing concrete ba sins and docks that will surpass any thing in the country. Brazil also is spending at Pana, near the mouth cf the Amazon, $13,fH'x,000; at Santos, a swampy port has been transformed in to a splendid harbor at a cost of $15. O0O,HM, and at Rio Grande do Sul. work is eoing orward on harbor im provements to cost another $12,000,00. This activity is not confined to Bra zil. Argentina is equally active, its harbor at Buenos Ayres is the pride of the country and coit $50.XX,00, but the government is preparing to spend Jjtlo.fton.ooo additional in im provements. Rosario, several hun dred miles from the sea on the river of Parana, is a splendid seaport, be cause of improvements to the river and the construction by the government of docks costing $10,000,0u0, at which the largest steamers load and unload. The expenditures made by this gov ernment for waterway improvements seen paltry beside these figures. The Nrlional Rivers and Harbors Con gress has been insistent for several years "that not less than S."a,X!0,000 an nually should be expended by the Unit ed States in such work. The sorry condition, and one that is growing worse every day, of the railroads rends absolutely imperative the develop ment of some addition:. means of transportation. Badly Mixed Up. Abraham Brown, cf Winterton, N. Y., had a very remarkable experience; he says: "Doctors got badly mixed up over me; one said heart disease; two called it kidney trouble; the fourth, blood poison, and the fifth stomach and liver trouble; but none of them helped me; so my wife advised trying Electric Bitters, - which are restoring me to perfect health. One bottle did me more good than all the five doc tors prescribed." Guaranteed for blood poison, weakness and all stom ach, liver and kidney complaints, by A. G. Luken & Co.. druggist, 50c. No Longer Wanted. "Writing plays is risky business," said a famous dramatist- "Past tri umphs don't count. He who has writ ten twenty snperb pieces Is just as likely to be damned on his twenty-first piece as any tyro. "There was once a playwright who sat In the front row at the first night of a new piece of his own. This piece failed. It failed dreadfully. "As the playwright sat, pale and sad, amid the hisses a woman behind him leaned forward and said: " 'Excuse me, sir, but, knowing yon to be the author of this play, I took the liberty at the beginning of the per formance of snipping off a lock of yoor bair.
