— NY<v Ort -a $ l''(;. There are men in the public life ■ who are the belter liked tho more ( they are unknown. Insect - of various kinds were in vented for the purpose of adding movements to limy men. Local papers indicate that quite a number of gentleman arc* willing to bo Governor of Georgia. An instructed delegate is «o in structed that ho cannot take a bribe to vote some other way One very fast race horso is named modesty. The name docs not illustrate the fitness of things. Tho liquor of a section of a country can lie judged by tin! quid jiy of snake stories that come from it Now, if the Republican party can live; twenty years without of fices it will deserve consideration for its principles. Tho fool is an improvement over the ordinary bore, 't on are not obliged to listen* to him on the score of politeness. In turning rascals out it is barely pmsible that one or two good men may be ijnfortnnnte enough 1<> get u.vcpt out with them. The man of health and strength is independent. You may call him anything you please so long as you do not call hint late for dinner. Politics should have nothing to tPi with the government of cities. ITifortunately polities have every thing to do with their government. The man who leaves any good business to hold an olheo is foolish. The man who bus no Ifusinefcs i. apt to bo a loafer and unfit lor a public position. Edgar S. Wilson, of Jackson, Miss., appointed to ollicc in Wyo ming Territory, will grow up with a big country, lloth have hud a good start in growing. In Gualamala biscuits pass as currency, Probably because the} are mf>re durable then silver. Kail road pic is equal to Govern ment bonds. The United States purchase and annexation of some of the Mexican Si.ites,as proposed in Now Mexico, would open up a new tield tor car pet-bag politicians. Tho New York Journal gives the following miaous and very lir fetchet advice to the gum eating girls of Vassa; ‘‘ho Hr chowesanu you will lie happy.” There is every where a growing disrespect for English royalty, which is tolerated l»y politeness to the Queen. Wales will be s u ry when his mother dies. The great good sensoof the Amer can people, irrespective of party or religion, is the natit ns safeguard. Slates can be saved w ithout the aid of hoodl uni politicians. Tho-Boston Post explains: “A vulgar man who is in tho wrong may try to bravo it out, but the true gentlemen is quick to ac knowledge his error and repair it.” In Washington people never ask: < * where arc you going this summer?’ There are two classes there. One exports to he beunccd and another hopes to get in. All the good Indian fronts arc •last in the Wild West Show bn i ucsb, w hile the hostile Indians in the West are liming fun with the infantry troops who cannot inarch away from their commissary stores with safety. Families at fa hionabJe watering plai t s escape for the time being | tlie mortification of being ditued by grocery milkmen and trade people who have uot delicacy enough to refrain from asking for their mon ey when it is duo. It is the way a man has of spoil*' ding his money that is most criti cised by moralists. The wav lie makes it is not so closely si rnlin i*fd. A very mean man can die l.clove 1 if no divides up his money t > the satisfaction of his critics. *'otel keepers in the vneinity of I.h.unt McOregor ought to make a fortune out of tho vulgar curiosi ty travelers who want to look at the Nation’s sick man. Borne one ! may yet suggest his removal to Yel lowstone Park, and then orgaizej CACiirsions. The United States receives Ital-i ly’s rags, beggars, monkeys, band-! organists, hard-up connts, strap ped patriots, broken down singers, | and other useless things without a murmur. Any Minister sent to that country by the President of tbe United States ought to Im re ceived add welcomed as a compu te tuf. Af'KH'l I/K !t %!. Sow Hiirknheat.

It hat Implication the I armor Needs. Prof. II. flail, in the Iudiana State Agricultural Keport, wiya: j “The farmer is in need of the high er education the disciplined mind ! and a larger amount of information -as a means of .elf protection. 1 lie farmer, in whose brain, in whose j heart, in whose soul, are lodged the best possibilities of our oilvili zation and generation, will he aide to defend himself and his against the sharks and humbugs which so j often entangle him, when he brings to his farm life the culture of severer thought. M hat he wants is ability disciplined, and knowledge widened, until he is able to measure arms, forecast re suits inul thwart the purposes of his unscrupulous foe. IT" wants to he drilled so that he may be abl ■ to meet the drilled intellect of the knave on the road, of tbej scoundrel on the street coiner, and of him who enters bis parlor to court bis fair and favorite daugh ter. “ llie farmer needs the drilled intellect and disciplined mind in order to elevate his profession, in ol der to elevate the art and science of his vocation. Tho farmers oc cupation is both uscienco and an art—a science in that it Ims to do with soil, and seed, and season; an art, in that much that ho does may lu> a delight to the eye, a stim ulus to the imagination and taste. Suc^i a farmer’s barn will not be in front of his house, his fence cor net's will be as straight as the eye can run them. The farmer needs the higher education in order that he may develop the highest degree ! possible the useful and the beauti ful in his own vocation,”— itura! j and Workman. Mak i>g Apjde Trees Hear Eiery Year. In many parts of tho country ap ple trees yield a crop of fruit only every alternate year, the year rep- ; resented by an odd number (lt>70) being lisuren, while that represen ted by and even number ISM)) will he fruitful. Ju other places or chards hear every year. Some | trees will yield only fruit only every other year, while others near them on every side will produce i a bountiful crop. Two seasons arc require to produce a crop of apples; that is, during one season 1 the fruit buds are developed, and •lining the next the fruit. All the vital cnergeies of some trees are i employed during one season to de- j velop the fruit buds; then the year follow ingjt In ir entire vitality seems to be spent in developing tin fruit, without sullieient force being left i o foita fruit-buds for the crop of j the next season Now, in order to induce an apple tree to bear everV I season, according to the American Garden, climb into the top, or go up on ladders, just as one does when pluckin ; the ripe fruit, and with a pair of sharp shears clip off all the young fruit from about half the tree. Then fruit-buds will j form on Unit side of the trees from which the young apples were cat off. One half the top, then will j bear fruit one year, while the other half will yield fruit the next sea-j sou.

Candid Atlvlce; A member ot the detective force, who was in the western part of the city the other day in search tT a young man accused of theft, came across a boy who was playing marbles with himself, and careless ly inquired if he knew the party named in tho warrant; “Know him like a book,” was the reply. “ilavu’t seen him lately, clif” “Not since this morning.” ‘‘Pretty good lVilow, isn’t lie!’' “One ot the best in town.” “I suppose you know wlicro ho lives!” “O, yes.” ‘‘Do you think I could hire him to work for me?” j ‘‘Guess not, sir.” “Hut we might walk up to the house and see.” “No use—not a bit. in the tir-t place, I’m on to you for a detec tivo. In the next place, the old woman would “spot’* you twenty yards off. In the third place, be fore you got to the gate Hill would be two blocks oft and run ning to beat railroad time.

What to Look For Contaminating drinking water is the eg use of so much sickness that every man and woman grown should know good water when they see it, and have the means ot testing it. Water may to all ap pearance he clear and sparkling and yet contain the germs of foul diseases. The presence of cliolor ine tells the story. This substance is never found in • the soil, and when discovered in water must have ctimu from the human system. In our daily food we use salt--the eholoride or sodium. After pas sing from the human body it be comes separated, and the chlorine makes its appearance in the con taminated water. As much as thir ty or forty grains to the gallon is ! found iu water drawn from wells near where people live. Let it be understood the more danger, and, also, that no water is really tit to j drink, which has any of this for ! eign substance. This is not a pleasant subject to discuss, but profile who are too dainty to pay j attention to it endanger their i health and that ui the community 1 the v live in I .*an Fransisoo Cion:.. h 1 pose the. sto;;- ■ n 1 but ii is jn \ oars ago v.1 • a it I«. ; , ■ 11 M issiissppr it. the d«* ■ tiling at its iiti.:lit An "I 1 j»11 sharp had stuffed »u »!••*’* . fully info his tt fo. cy.
