Thoughts For Jthe Farmers.
Ehe suicaer winds Is sniffin' 'round :
the blootnhi" locus' trees: >
Aad "the clover la the pastur' is a his |
day fer :ho bees,
And they been a-stviaghi' lions \.
above board, ar.c: on the sly.
Till they stutter in their i?u:zia' and
stnyrer as they fly.
The flicker on the fence rail 'pears to
jist spit on his wings
And roil up his feathers, by the sassy
way he sings:
And the hoss fly is a whettin' up his
foresees for a biz.
And the off mare is a switchin' all of
her tail they is!
You can hear the blackbirds jawin* as
they follow up the plow.
Oil, they're bound to yet their breakfast
and they're not a carin'
So they quarrel in the ferries and
they quarrel on the winy?
But they're peaceabler in pot pies
than any other thing;
And it's when I git mv shotgun drawn
tip in stidy rest.
She's as full cf tribberlatioh as a yuller-jacket's
And a few shots before dinner when
the suit's a shinin' right
Seems to icindo-sorto sharpen lip a
feller's appetite.
Tiiey's been a heap o' rain, but the
sun's out to-day.
And the clouds of the wet spell is all
cleared away.
And the woods is all the greener and
the grass is greener still;
It may rain again to-morrow, but I
don't thinit it will:
Some say the crop is ruined and the
corn is drowned out,
And prophesy the crop will be a failure
without doubt:
Cat the kind Providence that has nev
er tailed us yet.
Will be on band onc't more at the
'leventh hour, I b'et!
Does i lie inedder-lark complain, as he
swings high and dryThrough
the tvaves of the wind and
the blue of the sky?
Does the quail set up and whistle in
a disappointed way,
Br hange his head in silence and sorrow
all the day?
Is the eliipmonk's health a-failin?
Does he walk er does he run?
Don't the buzzards ooze around up
there just like they always
Is there anything the matter with the
rooster's lungs er voice?
Ort a mortal ter be complainin' when
dumb animals rejoice?
Then let us one and all be content
with our lot;
The summer's here this moriiin,' and
the sun is shinin' hot.
Oh! let us fill our hearts with glory
of the day.
And banish every doubt and care and
sorrow far away!
Whatever be our station, with Providence
for guide.
Such fine circumstances ort to make
us satisfied;
For the world is full of roses, and the
roses full of dew,
And the dew is full of heavenly love
that drips for me and you.

We tnul been camped*'for a few days
at a point 0:1 the upper reaches of tie
I'lc river, watting for a few of tie
party who were running a slue line. A ;
source of amusement was watching :
tile descent of a large bale headed eagle j
in the eddy back of tlie point. j j
He would strike tlie water with ;
great force, coming down from an im- :
mouse height. At times ho would dive
under the surface to reappear a moment
or two later generally with a
hsh clutched In his claws, when he
would fly (freighted with his tish) to
a very high mountain, on the overhanging
crest of which the nest with ,
his mate and young were quite visible '
to us with our neiu guiss.
1 had. noticed his success and jour- <
neys to the nest for^two mornings. On i
the third morning :i shadow coming
across the sun's rays caused me to \
look up and there'was the great bird ?
at his usual hunt to supply- the young ;
eagles with breakfast. With his keen
eye piercing thb river depths he poised j c
over a particular spot for a few mo- j
ments and then shot down with the j x
velocity of a. cannon ball. |
The waters parted and the eagle was .
lost to view. I watched and waited to ;
see liiin emerge with his prey, but tno- ! '
ments lengthened into minutes, and
minutes into a quarter of an hour, but '
the surface of the water remained un- j
disturbed. ! i
What could it mean? Even if he j
had struck himself against some hid- j
den rock and been killed the body i j
would have Coated to the surface. It
passed iny reasoning powers to solve .
the result of that plunge. Then far !
down, fully a quarter of :i mile off, I i 1
saw the greet bird struggling, either to j i
carry off a heavy burden or to free j ^
himself from one. The waters were j c
lashed into foam and the bird again
disappeared, and all was still.
This lashing of the water and disappearing
were repeated again and c
again, each time farther downstream. (
A bend in the river prevented my ?
seeing the final result. Calling one : j
of our men from the tent, we embark- j ?
ed in a canoe and started down the
river to view the strange proceeding t
closer. When we had doubled the
point below I saw lodged against the j A
beach in a small bay something that : 5
did not look natural to the place. We j t
paddled down and found it was 1113- en- S 7

A Cold In tlie Head. I *
A hydropathic treatment of a cold j *
in the head is more reliable than any 3
other. It is as follows: In tlie morning
after rising and at night before retir- {
ing wash the feet and legs as high up (
as the knees in cold water, then rub !
thern with a rough towel and massage *
them till the skin Is red and glowing. *
In addition to this cautiously snuff *
tepid water up the nose frequently 1
during the day and sip with 11 tea- j
spoon a glassful as hot as can be
borne an hour before each meal and at (
bedtime. A few days is often quite f
sufficient for simple cases and obstinate
ones yield if the treatment is pro- j x
longed. No medicines are required, j 1
If taken in the first stages of the dls- j 1
ease a cold is broken up which might 1 ^
otherwise become a severe case of s
bronchitis, lasting many days or
weeks.?Chicago News.
A Snbstltntc For La(in.
In an English school recently a cer- ?
tain boy was regularly absent during 1
the hour in which Latin was taught, t
The teacher called upon tlie boy's fa- <
tlier, at whose Instructions it had been 2
learned he remained away, and asked .
for an explanation. Tlie father said: j
"It is all right. During tlie Latin hour
I am teaching Jimmy something that *
he will find far more useful than Latin 1
in his progress through life." Tlie
teacher was interested and asked c
what this subject might be. The fa- t
ther replied. "I am teaching my son ^
how to shave without a look ing glass." x

-The merry-go-round is" doing a -t
rushing business these days. c
General Julius Cse.-ar. director of t
Rome. was assassinated In the Senate "
last evening by a band of eonspira- 1
ors led by Marcus Brutus and Caius i
iiassius. says a "cablegram" I o the t
Chicago Tribune under date of March !
in, ; i B. c:. The people, led by Marc i
Vnlony, have risen In revolt attainst 1
no conspirators. Brutus and Cassius I
:ave tied from ilie city. The other r
.-unspirators litive been arrosled. (
General Caesar arrived at the Sen- t
ue shortly before if o'clock,.and after
tismissing Ills chariot, sauntered 1
hrough the forum, stopping occasion- n
illy to exchange greetings with his C
nany friend. His bodyguard was not I
vlth him. t
When General Caesar entered the t
senate he took his accustomed place f
tear the tribune lo listen to the de- I
late. Mercys Brutus was in the
ribur.e at the time. No one susphet- t
id the tragedy that was impending, t
Suddenly it was observed thnt there 1
,vas a commotion of an unusual order i
n the Senate. Metellus Cimber, I
vliose disfranchisement, by the order
if General Caesar created comment 1
une weeks ago. approached the gen- <
rid with a petition for a restoration '
)f his political rights. With li:ni was v
7alus Cassius. Casca. Trebonius ami i
>ther friends, all of whom were sup- t
iesed to be oil good terms wirJi the
General Caesar'rejected the peti- *
ion. whereupon Meteilus Cimber grew c
iolent and threatening. Cains Cas- ^
;iurf also spoke to the general in a 1
hreatening maimer. Suddenly, and
vithout any warning. Casca drew a i
iagger from the folds of his toga and <
tabbed General Caesar in the side. 1
Mincst at the same instant Cains Cas- >
;ins stabbed the general twice and
>thers of the conspirators pressed (
orward. all striking the dictator re- i
?eatedly with their daggers. ?
General Caesar staggered a few *
eel to the statute erected in honor of *
"jencral Ponipey and supported himself
against, the pedestal, looking
iround in vain for Marc Antony and
he latter's friends. They were not
jresent, however, and the dictator was
surrounded by his enemies.
it remained for Marcus Brm us to (
ledger the fatal thrust. Descending
rom the tribune he approached General
Caesar and stabbed him to the
ica-t. The general fell to the floor
it the loot of the Pompey statue, and t
vith a look of reproach at Brutus, j
said: .
"^nd you, too, Brutus?" ^
These were General Caesar's last
vords, the conspirators left the Sen- 1
ite in a body and repaired to the fo- 1
?im. where already the news of the I
ragedy had attracted an immense t
rowd. The excitement was intense, i
ind Brutus, to quiet the crowd, made v
i brief address, explaining that it <
lail become necessary to take Gen- t
ral Caesar's life in order to preserve I
lie liberties of the republic. t
Senator Brutus' remarks had the <
iffeet ol quieting the crowd for the 1
ime being. The conspirators then
aithrtrew to Brtitus' house, where they t
emained in conference during the <
create)- part of the night. :
The funeral of General Caesar was t
ie:d in the forum to-day, and was at- t
ended by an immense crowd of pen- i
lie. Marc Antony had been request- i
d to deliver the oration. The peo- t
>le were suspicious of Antony, as it t
,vos known that he had been in con- i
crenpe with Senators Brutus and <
Cassias earlier in the day. and it was
'eared that he had been won over. ;
Phis fear, however, proved to be I
groundless. . t
Antony's address is declared by aii t
vlio heard it to be the best lie has c
>vcr made in Rome. He professed {
Headship to the conspirators, but it <
vas soon seen that his remarks held I
i liid lea meaning, and in a few min- t
ites the entire populace understood t
hat Antony was appealing to Rome ?
o rise and punish the treason. Sir. t
\.ntony spoke in part as follows: I
"Friends, Romans. Countrymen* I

Pnly 125 Miles of Track In the Philippine
There Is every reason to hope that
lie year I Out will mean much to the
Philippine Islands In the way of substantial
progress. The crying need
or railway construction ha3 at last
cached the proper sources In. the
ionic land, and plans for necessary ;
ines will probably be assured l>v
hls time next year. A railroad contocting
northern and southern Luton,
via Manila, would create an era

present transportation facilities, the

A country 01 7,000.000 people, with
orrilory and resources which, prop

i population three times as large, .has
?ut 125 miles of railroad trade, and ^
this of a rather primitive character. 'Hill
n fact, the little attention heretofore
Sivcn to rail road construction in the

neglect that, prevailed with ref;renoo
