Farm animals should not be allowed within the reach of tobacco leaves. Kentucky farmer recently lost three valuable cows, which ate some of the weed in their hay. An inventor says: "Our latest lawn mower eats the grass off like a cow, but it dosen't cost as much for provender ; and truth compels as to add, that it doeen t give as much milk, either." A Boston woman testified that a man had threatened to take her life, and he was put under bonds to keep the peace for six months. Since then she has married him.

The Wayne County Journal recently printed an article headed "Talk About Stoves." There has been a good deal of talk about stoves in Rome this fall, but most of it has been of a confidential na ture and not calculated for public print. Our folks mix their stove talk up too much with Calvinism. Home ismtinel. A North Hill lady writes to this office inquiring if "paragraphers ever go to heaven?" Good land, woman, they nev er go anywhere. They don't get a chance. They just sit around and do good and count their money and subscribe to charitable enterprises, we don t know whether any of them "ever go" to heav en or not. The "religious column" in a secular pa per is usually a very unsatisfactory de partment to most readers. There is noth ing the average man thinks less about. and at the same time feels more "touchy" in regard to, than his religious belief, though he himself may not be able to explain what it is. Therefore, ten men will read the religious column (often edited by a semi-infidel) in a sec ular newspaper, and nine of them will become more or less offended at what is there printed. Here is a warning to men too mean to advertise. One of this description want ed to sell some land, and so he put a written notice in one of the hotels the other day. A man who was enquiring lor a small farm was ieierred to the writ ten notice, when he replied : "I can't buy land at a fair price of any man who does his advertising in this way. He'd steal the fence, the pump-handle and the barn-doors before he'd give up posses sion." - Probably no portion of the human anatomy is so delicate, sensitive, and at the same time so capricious in its action as the human ear. We have known a woman who could stand up in the garret, looking out of a dormer window, and hear her husband kiss the hired girl in the cellar, eight rooms and two flights of stairs away, and the next night that very same woman would take her baby to church and hold it on her lap while it screamed and howled fifteen minutes of the sermon into oblivion, and be astonished when she was told that the dear child had been crying. BwlingUm Hawkeye. As indignant Englishman writes to the London Week, to protest against the erection of a statue to John Stuart Mill on the Thames Embankment or any where else. He desires to know "why a statue to Mr. Mill is to be put up in this important thorough fnro? What did Mr. Mill render to the country which is to be thus commemorated ? If every man who has endeavored to out rage the religious sentiments of his countrymen and advocated atheism in ita most debased form is to be thus hon ored, why limit the selection to a man whose very autobiography is fatal to anv claims that he might otherwise have had to ordiuary respect?" To which the New York World says: "This angry pat riot ought to console himself with the re flection that if the statue of Mr. Mill is confided to an average British sculptor of the period it will serve rather us a warning than as an inspiration to those who gaze upon it, ana, like our own graven imnge of Mr. Seward in Madison square, will lead the casual passenger to regnrdit as the handiwork of men who t. mo original, and devised it in the spirit of tlx we waxen statues of con turxacious heretics tvhi,-li ,. i : :,. used to carry in procession and burn With pomp m the Autos da Ft of Portu gal and Spain. it a of at a no a in air-holes too at Of ful Ka one Itru--, tl of and girl go key mi has Weather Signs. Many of our farmer friends have cer tain signs by which thev claim that thev can foretell the character of the coming winter. Among them are the character of the corn husks, thin ones indicating a mild winter ad thick ones the reverse. A plentiful supply of acorns and other nuts maicaung a hard winter and a short crop a light, open one. An unusual number of spiders during the fall are taken as harbingers of a mild wintered their absence the reverse. On the other hand an immense supply of caterpillars indicate a uaru ana severe winter. hen sauirrels are idle and listless it betoken: mild winter, but much business on their hands indicates a hard winter. If the breastbone of a goose is white, we will have a mild winter, but if it is dark, look out for deep snows and cold weath er. If the ground-hog goes into winter quarters early it is to be considered as a token of a severe winter ; and we might extend the list much further. In look ing over the many country papers which pass through our hands we have kept a record of these weather prognosticators, ano give a reoun irom the reports made to said papers that in Greene coun ty they will have a mild winter, because the husks are very thin ; in Washington the winter is to be mild, because spiders are plenty ; near by in Allegheny, they are to have it very severe, because the breastbone of a goose was very dark; in Lancaster it will be severe, because the squirrels are busy, but in the adjoining county of York, it will be mild, because the woodchucks have already gone into winter quarters; in Delaware county, the husks are thick, and a hard winter may be looked for, but in Bucks it w ill be light, because forest nuts are scarce in Salem county, N. J., caterpillars are plenty and indicate a hard winter ; but across the river in New Castle county. Del- they may expect a very mild w in ter from the absence of nuts. And vet anv one of these can furnish positive prooi mat ms tneory nas been proven correct many times. The trouble usual ly is that persons observe the cases in which these or other signs prove correct. but fail to note the cases in which it fails. Afternoon Men. There is a proverb which says "What can be done at any time is never done," and applies especially to a class who have become slaves to the habit of pro- .:nntnn 1 , 1. . l ., . - - craii"i""" mc luiuituai postponing Ol everything that they are not compelled by necessity to do immediately. Now delays are not only damaging to present prospects, but they are destructive of ultimate success. A dilatory man is not to be depended upon. -The slightest pre text is suflicient for him to disappoint you. If an emyloye, the sooner he is discharged the greater the advantage to the employer. There are those who who may properly be called 'afternoon men.' They are always busy getting ready to go -to work. In the morning they walk around, carefully inspect their uuiies, anu men say : "Plenty to do to-day. I must go to work this afternoon !" About three o'clock they survey what tney naveiri aone, ana exclaim : "One thing and another has nrevent ed me from making any headway to-day. I'll quit, and begin bright and early to morrw morning." One day with them is 6iniply the re flection of another. There is" nothing accomplished in a whole life ; and their western sun overtakes them, and finds no preparation for the wants and infirm ities ot age. Ihere is nothing to look back upon but squandered time. One hour's exercise in the morning loosens the muscles of the limbs, sets the blood dancing in the veins, and fits a man physically and mentally for the day's activity; while one hour's sloth after breakfast produces a torpor from which is almost impossible to rally. The French Marriage Law. says : few days since a lady called at the May or's oflice and reauested that the mar riage intentions of two parties residing Pans should be posted in the omce. Not understanding exactly the exigen cies of the case, the Mayor sent to the .trench tJonsul for intormation on the subject The latter drew up two odd looking documents in the French lan guage and sent them to the Mayor, with full explanation of the case. It ap pears that Pierre Keintjet, a t renchman, Henri, who resides Jn Paris. The latter desires to marry Hortense, a minor daughter of Laurent Garot, who lives with her parents in Paris. As both par ties are minors, the civu marriage laws France require that the marriage in tention shall be published for two weeks the residences of the parents of both, and therefore the intention of Henri must be published in Boston. This is probably the first case where the per mission of the Mayor of Boston had been held necessary for the marriage of a Frenchman to a French woman, both of whom reside in Paris. The two docu ments referred to were a notice of the intention, which is now posted in a con spicuous place in the Mayor's oflice, and certificate, to be signed by the Mayor and sealed with the city seal, stating that the intention has been published for two weeks, and that no objection has been made." A Solid Case at Last. An Irish matron enters a lawyer's office: "Is this the place, sur, where peo ple git divorces?" "Yes, occasionally we engage in that kind of business. ' What can we do for you, madam?" "Faith, sur, I'd loike to git a .divorce from me husband Pathrick." "What is the matter with Patrick, madam?" "Shure and Pathrick gits dhrunk, sur." "That's bad. But I hardly think that alone will be sufficient eause. Have you other complaint ?" "Indade I nave, sur; Pathrick bates me." Yes, yes, I see. That adds cruelty to drunkenness. But, madam, you do not seem to suffer much in appearance from Patrick's cruelty. I think you must find stronger reason before the court will grant you a divorce." "Well, sur, besides all that, I fear, sur, that Pathrick isn't throe to me." "Ah 1 now, madam, you begin to talk business. What reason have you for thinking that Patrick is urethral to your "Well sur. I may say that it's meself that has a sthrong suspicion that Path rick is not the father of me last choild." How To Be Handsome. Most people would like to be hand some. All cannot have good features they are as God made them ; but almost any one can look well, especially with good health. It is hard to give rules a very short space, but in brief these will do : Keep clean wash freely. All the skin wants is leave to act free, and it takes care of itself. Ita thousands of must not be closed. Eat regularly, and sleep enough not much. The stomachs can no more work all the tune, night and day, than a horse. It must have regular work and rest Good teeth are a help to good looks.

Most men and women must keep in the traces, and keep pulling the year round. All the more, therefore, it is their duty to take things easier as the longer days come on. Take longer rest at noon. Put on lesa steam when you are at work. Snatch a Sunday now and then from the middle of the week. Yoa can't? You can. People find time to be sick and to die. These can just as easily find time to rest and keep well. All Joes not depend on finishing that dress or fencing that field ; or putting up so much fruit, or catching so many customers. Better that the children should wear old clothes than that their mothers should be laid aside by a fever. Betterthat the corn crop be a little light er than that there should be no one to harvest it Put up the store shutters earlier at night; prepare plainer meals in the kitchen. Take a noonday nap yourself, and give your employes a chance to go fishing of an afternoon, now and then. That only is duty which the Lord lays upon us, and he is not so hard a master as we do sometimes suppose. Woman's Love. A man, who had struggled with a ma lignant disease, approached that crisis in its stage on which his life teemed to de pend. Meep, uninterrupted sleep, might insure his recovery. His anxious wife, scarcely danng to breathe, was sitting by his bed ; her sen-ants exhausted bv con stant watching, had all lelt tier. It was midnight ; a door was left ojien for air; she heard, in the stillness of the night, a window open below stairs, and soon after approaching footsteps. .A moment more a man with his face disguised entered the room. She in -tantly saw her hus band's danger, and anticipating the de sign of the unwelcome intruder, she pointed to her husband, and pressing her finger upon her lips to implore silence, neld out to the robber her purse and her keys. To her great surprise, he took neither. Whether he was terrified or charmed by the courage of her affec tion cannot be known, tie lelt tne room, and. without robbing a house sanctified by such strength of affection iie derjartoi. Combat Between Parrot and a Spider. a paper relates a remarkable contest which he witnessed in the Isle of Java between a parrot and a gigantic spider. The spider, whose body was as long as a small'bird's, dropped, down upon a young parrot whose mamma was .from home, and spreading its huge claws over the nest began sucking its blood. When the mother returned she naturally went for the enemy, and seized hold of one of his legs, but whether it be that legs are not a sensive portion of spiders' organization, or that this particular insect had an overpowering penchant for the blood of young parrots, he wouldn't let go, until his pain becoming too intense for endu rance, he turned on the mother and, twining all his legs firmlv around her neck, was just arranging for a good long suck in that quarter, when she gave him an awful dig m the belly with her beak, whereupon he fell over, dragging her to the ground with him. The naturalist then shot him and released the parrot Emma Bailey and Emma Colby are billed to run a foot race. This will be, we suppose, what the printers call a two em dash. Editors and reporters in Canada are warned against accepting their salaries without close scrutiny. Counterfeit five cent pieces are in circulation. A down town man who went to church last Sunday, remarked afterward that he preferred the organ to the preacher. He said there seemed to be a stop to the or gan. One of the editors of the St Louis Globe-Democrat has been called to the pulpit If it isn't nailed down he'll steal it Rochester Democrat. Probably the evenest tempered set of editors on the continent are to be found in the Black Hills. They seldom break over the rules of etiquette further than to call each other "damned liars." Every adult man has fourteen hun dred square feet of lungs ; or, rather, the mucous membrane lining the air-cells of his lungs, if 6pread upon a smooth, plane surface, cover an extent of fourteen hun dred square feet "A generous accumulation of igno rance," is the mild way in which a Roch ester paper characterizes the author of a recent article in a cotemporary.
