You have two hundred ! bones and six hundred muscles; your I blood weighs twenty-five pounds; your heart is five inches in length ind three inches in diamet-r; it beats 70 times per minute. 4.200 times per hour, 100,800 per day, 36,792.000 per year. At each beat a little over two ounces of blood is thrown out of it. j and each day it receives and d;s | charges about seven tons of that wonderful fluid. Your lungs will contain a gallon of air, and you in ; hale 24,000 gallons per day. The aggregate surface or the air cells of your lungs, supposing them to be spread out, exceed 20,000 square inches. The weight of your brain is three pounds; when you are a man it will weigh about eight ouuces more. Your nerves exceed 10,000,- 000 in number. Your skin is com posed of three layers, and varies from one-fourth to one-eighth of an inch in thickness. The area of your skin is about 1,700 inches. Each square inch contains about 2,500 sweating tubes or perspiratory pores, each of which may be likened to a little draining tile, one-fourth of aii inch long, making and aggregate length of the surface of your body of 88.541 feet, or a tile ditch for draining the body almost seventeen miles loDg.— Exchange. We learn something now ever\ •lay. Mr. Charlie Glessner, of Grand Junction. Mesa county, has discover ed a novel n ay of making water run up hill, and has secured a patent on his invention. It is a simple affair, hut perfect in effect and attracts fav orable attention in irrigation circles. It consists «»f a tube, of any desired length, bent in spiral form, and so arranged that one end is placed in the body of water and the other end elevated to the point where it be desired to discharge the w ater. The spiral shaft is supplied through out its length at regular intervals with circular floats resting in vote of water which gives it a perfect and uniform poise and removes all fric tion. With but little power the shaft is given a rotary motion and as the lower end of the spiral lube dips wa j ter at eaeh revolution, it is carried up and emptied at the upper end. It ' can be made in any length from six I feet to as many ad may be desired, i and promises to become very popular throughout irrigating districts where it may be desirous of Dialing water on high grounds.—Field and Farm The defeat of justice by means of requiring juries to be unanimous is becoming apparent to many thinking men. A prominent lawyer says: **I would just as soon shrike dice with j my adversary as to submit a case to a jury.” Another lawyer tells of a jury which stood six, to six and de cided the verdict by lot. This is of ten done and it is glaringly unjust. In nine cases out of ten where money is involved the sum is decided by a system of averages w here the preju diced extremist outweighs the fair minded man of ability and character. The common senso of a decided ma jority should shape the verdict or the jury system should bo abolished al together. Now, it is easy to bribe or “bamboozle” or “bulldoze” one man on a jury, and thns it is impos sible to get justice. The system is 1 also very cumbersome and expensive, i A jury of four with three to decide or of six with four to frame a verdict would discourage jury cranks and . jury bribers, but it would tend even handed justice.—Denver Graphic. i It is a noticeable fact that np in ' Wyoming where women have been ’ allowed to vote for the past ten or i twelve years the scheme has grown t more popular year by year.

Ferry «fc Co., of Detroit, Michigan, hat* reached oar table. It* cover rhiH year is especially artiBtic and attractive, and its content*, as usual, interesting and instructive. Ferry’s seeds are thoroughly reliable, and always come true. The direc tion* given in the Annual for the cultivation of both flower* and vege 1 aides are so lull and explicit that uo one can fail of success who uses *heir seeds and follows the instruc tions. D. M Ferry <fc Co are very con servative, hoth in offering new sorts and in their claims for them when offered; but they take pains to inform themselves ns to the true character of all new varieties, so if some mnch landed novelties are not found in the Annual, the probability is they have tested them and found them of no value. A request sent to the firm at De troit, Michigan, will bring you a copy of the Seed Annual for 1890 by return mail. Friday evening, Dec. 27, Capt. H. A. Billow of Lamar, came in on the stage and organized a G. A. R post at this place. Thirteen old sol diers were mustered. Many others would have been present were it not for a misunderstanding. The name selected was Fremont Post, No. 77. Wes. Ferguson did a genteel act in giving the Capt. a free passage over his stage line and Capt. did the thing generous by not charging for his ser vices. This marked courtesy was very much appreciated by the buys and a vote of thanks wasgiven. Capt. Bil lowis a good organizer and mustered the boys with decision and dispatch The people of Springfield as well as the Fremont Post recognize his valu able rervicea and thank him accord iugly. Our best wishes for the suc cess of the post.—Springfield Herald The pleasant weather which has prevailed since, the November bliz zard has been general all over the west. According to the precedent of former years we may look for a siege of cold weather the first week in January, although we believe the professional weather clerks have set the time for the 23d of January. In any event the winter will propbably he of short existence and this re minds us of what Governor Gilpin suid the other day, and that was to the effect that in his boyhood dajs the Hudson and Delaware rivers were frozen up every wiuter tor six months at a time. Now they are navigable nearly all the year round. Close observers of meterological changes will agree that the winters of North America are gradually be coming milder and of much shorter duration.—Field and Farm. A new “fad” has struck eastern social circles. It is called the “spider web party.” and is becoming quite popular. It consists of running as many threads as there are guests all over the bouse, twisting them about the pictures, over doors and wiudows, etc. At the end of each thread is a number, and each guest is furnished with a corresponding number. The guests find their number and follow the threads through all their devious windings and snarls to the end, where a prize awaits them. The por suit leads to all kinds of complica tions, and is very amusing. Farmers in the Arkansas valley tell us that wheat planted in the first days of November is up tour inches high and is growing these mid-days of winter. The Arkansas is going to prove a grand wiuter wheat grow ißg section. There will be not much failuro in geting forty bushels from the acre there, where there is an abandauoe of water-Field and Farm.

The publication of the next i»sue of the News is indeftinitely postponed. While we have the most explicit faith in the future of Mulvane and the ad jacent country, yet at the present time and until the town and country arc more developed, a person is not justified in publishing a paper at this place, as there is not sufficient sup port for such an institution. No matter where we shall cast our lot the twelve months that we have spent among the people of Mulvane will always he remembered as happy ones. Adieu.—Mulvane News.

Men in the bar-room or the poker club make free with reputations of neighbors and associates, regardless of truth or the harm that may result.

The three morning papers of Kan sas City are running special trains on Sunday morning to supply Kansas people with their Sunday papers. A pertinent question that arises in that connection is why they don’t run spe cial trains iti Missouri. It is reported that a mountain liou is infesting the neighborhood of Gra nada.
