' Last season many people here abouts lost their hogs. The disease seemed to be cholera . Hotel swill appears to contain some dangerous element, and some pork raisers re fuse to take it unless Orange peel is kept out of it. Sick hogs sho uld not be left with well ones for a moment after the discovery is made. Beer costs the saloon man about 16 a barrel. He retails it, five cents a glass' for $30. Who gets rich on the $24 and who poor? Why is not this a good time to sow clover seed? It will go deeply in the frost cracks when the snow goes off, and root well before it comes up, and is thus preserved from destruction by the late frosts, If you are going to buy nursery stock this spring order now, and don't be persuaded into buying any thing older than two years. ' ' A Story and t Moral. Carle was a misshapen dwarf of Arthur's Court. Day by day for long years he besought the knights to smite Off his head, but they loved him, ' and' they would not have harmed a hair of his head. One day became to Gawaine, and said,"" I pray thee, Gawaine, strike off my head ; " and Gawaine said, " nay I love thee to much. " But when he saw tears on the poor creature's face moved by a great impulse he smote, a,nd. there rose up not the deformed Carle but Sjr Carlile handsomest of the knights, who had boon a victim of ft cruel enchantment which could be orercomo only when some friend should love htm enough to smite. The moral is that not one of us grows to his full stature till friendship is hon est enough and tender enough to break with wounds if need be, the spell of our own vanity and insula tion.) Legs Most kt Cored. The Yalo faculty lias issued an edict that hereafter all students training for the athletic teams must wear trousers when running through the public streets for exercise. The city authorities requested tlint stu. dents training for teams should wear more clothing. A runaway occurred a few weeks ago by a, team becom ing frightened at a number of stu. dents running bare legged through one of the streets, hence the request. The students are prejinring to use knickerbockers and long stockings. . What Ha Fearad. Mrs. Moneybaga Your son's ex travagance is increasing. Ho wants a new plaything.

What is called a " Religious war " but one in which there seems to be more of the eril spirit than religion is exciting the people of Centerville in N. J. , Just what the difficulty if we do not know, but it seems to have cul minated last Friday afternoon when a meeting was held for the election of trustees for the next year. There are two factions, one apparently up holding the pastor Rev. C. W. Dem ing, and the other opposing. The opponents seemed to be in the ma jority and elected their trustees, whereupon Mr. Demlng and his fol lowers after much unseemly wrang ling, held a meeting and elected another set. It cannot make much difference as to the right or wrong of the matter so far as the church is concerned. Probably both sides have been hasty and indulged inill con sidered action. What we call at tention to is the evil which is wrought by such contentions. A minister may preach the gospel of pence, and a congregation may pray that the sun of righteousness . shall shine 014 them, but such preaching and' praying is mockery when the devil of strife, contention and open hostility invades a church, and causes such unseemly conduct. , If a minister divides his congregation his future usefulness among that people is ended, and rather than lead an opposing column to the bat tle, he would muoh better step' down and out. His continued presence and aggressiveness only makes the matter worse. Church people nave enough evil to oppose without quar reling and wrangling among them selves. NOW IT IS CAMPHOR. The Decline Is Attributed to " Bears " In the Market. 1 About everything has been in a trust, and now it sooms camphor has the attention of a syndicate, which has its headquarters in London, and is preparing to corner the market. A year ago refined camphor sold at 34 cents per pound, since then it has sold for 64, and Is now about 60, this decline is attributed to bears " in the market, nearly all the crude camphor of commerce is grown in Japan and Formosa. Formerly it was produoed in Sumatra, Bornea and other parts of the Indies and China, but lately they have not been factors in production, Camphor trees are of the evergreen variety. Symmetrical in proportion, blossom Ing with white flowers and bearing red berries. The trees attain great age some being 300 years old and measuring fifteen feet in diameter. The Formosa produot is Inferior to tuat 01 Jatian, and a jrannosa is in. habited largely by- savages, and the production of crude camphor is at tended with muoh danger, Japan practically supplies the world. The amount exported from that country averages about nve million pounds. one-fourth comes to this country and the remainder is consumed in Europe. It must be refined before it is ready for consumption. This process was until two years ago con. fined to European and America n re fineries, but the Japs have now en. tered the market, and are establish, ing rofinorios in that country. ' rr - .

There is a ridiculous fellow over in London who is trying to convince people that nobody understands the art of going to bed. This may be true of England, where they say people can't keep clean without " tubbing five times a day, but it isn't true in this country, where it would be voted by very large ma jority that the art which is not .un derstood is that of " gutting up.
