Ohitinate sores and ulcer?, which refuse to heal under ordinary treat ment, soon become chronic- and deep ened, and lead to conditions most perious. They are caused in different ways', hut in every case the blood it involved, and no amount of local treat ment can have any effect. The poison must be eliminated from the blood before a cure can be had. THROWN FROM A HORSE. Mr. II. Kuhn. of Marion.

A GUNSHOT "WOUND. Cipt. J. H. MeHrayer. the well-known dis- -ARM MD STOCK 1TES. I'lie Democrat says a strange parc s.te is damaging the wheat of farmer J. II. Hoggs, near Nicholasville, that he is at a loss to account for. The lly is a dark one and attacks the wheat at the roots. Samples of the injured growing crop were sent to this office and the Experiment Station at Lex ington will pass on the strange fly. Mr. Boggs sowed the crop between September 19 and October 14, and he is sure one fourth of the crop will be a loss. Mr. Boggs would like for the older farmers to enlighten him on this new pest.

It is useless to expect local treatment of salves, lo tions, ete., to effect a cure, because they can not reach the real cause of the trouble, which is the blood. S. S.

These roots can be piled up to a depth of three or four feet. 'Ihe tops should not be cut off too closely if they are to keep well. That the dairy pays one man-, and does not pay another on an adjoining farm is evidence that the fault is in the man. One could have no better place to go to school than to strive to locate the cause of the success of the one and the failure of the other, Drilled oats sometimes gives a better yield, but this is because the ground is put in better condition by the use of the drill than it would be if broad casted; but the latter gives better root protection, and seems to better retain the soil's moisture. The Louisville Weed, a leading to bacco journal, commenting on the quality of this year's crop, says: ''The new crop of burlcy that has reached this market so far has been most dis appointing. The tobacco is thin, with no gum, dingy in appearance, lifeless, and in truth very undesirable for fill, er purposes. Not a single hogshead of colory or bright has been seen on the market so far this season.

She produces plants which de vote themselves to the manufacture and sale of intoxicants. The South tueriean toddy free is well known to naturalists. It i.- well known also to the South American beetle, theOryctes Hercules. When the latter goes on a ?pree he never goes it alone, after the unneighborly habit of the human irunknrd. lie collects his friends and acquaintances to the number of o0 or 10; the whole crowd run their short horns through the bark of the toddy tree, revel in the outflowing juices, and while inebriated are easily caught by the human natives. The toddy tree parts with its liquor free of charge. There are other plants ivhich are less generous. They exact no less a penalty than the death of the unfortunate drunkard. And what Ho they do with the body? Strange as it may seem, they eat it. Tn this manner they obtain the food which nourishes them and sustains their healthful ex istence. At the end of each of their long green leaves these plants have i pitcher-shaped receptacle. We might style this the growler, but ft never needs to be rushed. It is always full of what with special appropriateness might be called bug juice a watery iquor, sweet to the taste and inebriat ing to the senses. Only in fine weather is the growler open for business. On rainy days it is firmly shut up to keep Dut the rain that would dilute and spoil the contents. Bippincott's. Appropriately Nnnieil. It was on the Southern Pacific train a few days ago. A group of traveling men were talking shop where they were going, what they were selling, md all the tricks of the trade. "I am bound for Trinity, Tex.," said Dne of them. "I never heard of the place," re marked another. "And, by the way, that is a very peculiar name. Why is :t called Trinity?" "Because there are only three good people in it," was the response. N. O. Times-Democrat. When Florida Was Discovered.

Military ami Field rvuislc. Considering the antiquity of the trumpet and the drum, and their ob vious adaptability to sounding signals, it would seem as if field music must have originated simultaneously with these instruments. That soldiers marched and fought to their martin! strains in the most ancient times we know from passages in the Bible and the classics. But there is a difference between military and field music. The former is played by the regimental bands, and consists ehietly of marches and inspiring airs; the latter is played on the field of battle to fire the sol dier's heart. Field music is "sounded" by the bugle, the trumpet, the drum or the drum and fife, and consists oi n system of signals by which, instead of bv'word of mouth, commands are conveved to the troop?. It is impossi ble to discover when the first s-ystem of this kind orinated. Probobly it de veloped gradually. The fact that a trumpet or a drum can be heard much more distinctly on the battlefield than an olficer's voice, which might at the most important moment be lost in the din, is so obvious that signals for th most usual commands', "charge" and "retreat," must have come into use with the instruments capable of sound ing them, other signals being gradual ly adde'd. (Justav Kobbe, in Century. For the AVcIhIi Itriile. A touching and poetieal custom pre vails in the Welsh-Tyrol. When a j-oung maiden is about to be married, immediately before she steps across the threshold of her old home, on her way to the church, her mother sol emnly gives her a new pocket handker chief. Ihe bride holds it in her hand throughout the marriage ceremony, uring it to wipe away her tears. So soon as the marriage festivities are ended the young wife lays the hand kerchief aside in her linen closet, and there it remains as long as she lives. Nothing would induce a Tyrolese wife to use this sacred handkerchief. It may be a century or longer before it is taken from its place to fulfill the sec ond and last part of its mission. When the wife dies, perhaps a gray oh grandmother, the loving hands of the next of kin place the bridal handker chief over the face of the dead and it is buried with her in the grave. Lon don o'eJti.
