ROPY milk from cows is caused by
eating straw from a manure pile, drinking pond
or other stagnant water, suffering from want of
sail, or from violent exercise in the hot sun ;
and any of these cau«ei will make the milk

or leas poisonous. The preventives are good
feed, plenty of salt, clear water, shade in the
ic-iture, and a trustworthy cow-boy, who knows

THE ill-feeling between Germany
and Russia is assuming more formidable pro
portions than a mere newspaper war. At the
same time we are informed tlie Austro-German
relations are exceedingly friendly, while the
Austro-Russian relations are right the reverse.
In other words, the cable diswatches would
have us believe that An-ma and Germany ar«*
about ready to pounce upon distracted Russia
and pound her. The Colossus ot the North
having proved in the Turco-Russian war to be
a weak-Kneed, wabbling Colossus, and having
«inoe said war become still more weak-kfieed

to the effect that u murder had been committed
near Saxonburg, and u market woman had seen
two men carrying the dead body away in a

is always on the alert for an item, started on
the trail; and after patiently following the
story from mouth to mouth, he finally ran down
the veritable market woman who had originated
the story. What she said was that she had
seen three men in a htigirv on the Saxonburg
ro.nl, and one of them was dead drunk. l*rom
this the story of the dead man and murder
grew. People often wonder why things are
not always correct in the paper. And the news

CONSIDERABLE dissatisfaction is ex
pressed in some parts of our county at present
with the operations of our patent laws. Many
persons, but more especially farmer.-, who are
obliged to make use of inanv of those small
matters which might come under the head of
patented trifles, are continually threatened with
claims tud suit, at low for their enforcement by
patent agents or owners of patents, until ilieir
patience has become exhausted. In this way a
strong popular feeling adverse to patent laws
has arisen ; ami it needs no great prophetic
capacity to prognosticate an early reform in
some mann< r of the present law of patents,
under which a thing that is old and antirjui
dated, worn out ami discarded by our fathers
perhaps, may be patented and made a source
of trouble. Cases of this nature have become
so frequent that it has passed into a byword,
and the exacting patent agent, with his claims
011 fences, gates, harrows, churn" and other
such matters, takes rank with those bothersome
individuals who, styling themselves "agents,"
often develop into swindlers.

The publishers of Enitiriis' FASHION (it'AK
TERI.Y are in the field with the new premium
list of their magazine; and all that tnamnia t>r
children (or papa either I'M ihat matter) need
do, is to send name aud address on a postal
card to Messrs. Ehrich & Co., of 2JS7 Eighth
Avenue, New York, when a Copy of the list
will be mailed them free, and they can ap
preciate for themselves the advantages offered.
The FASHION' (JCARTKUI.Y SO exactly fills
its place as a guii)e to economy in the house
hold, and its suh-criptiou p.icc, only 50 ots. a
year, is so very trifling, that little difficulty
should he experienced in securing subscrip

will gladly avail themselves of the opportunity
thus presented of semiring some useful ai tiole

exhibit and compete for.

cellaneous goods. This sale will oc
