FARM NOTES. '
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.

A BITTER CHURCH FIGHT.
Lively Times In the M. E. Chnroh at Cen-
tervllle li.J.
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.
