The Lake City Pilot, a new candidate for public favor is on our desk says the Paragould Soliphone, and is a Bprightly youngster. The editor seems to have a combination of pro fessions, judging from the following sqibs: “A couple of our young men got loaded on booze Saturday night and ran up against a pistol in the hand of our marshal, wdiich left some sign, which the writer had to sew up,” from which we infer that the editor must have an M. D. handle to his name. Then in another paragraph he ' says “Not much time for preaching when the editor has to play the devil in an office that is chiefly made up out of a hell box, and this bears the earmarks of a D. D. This editor is blest beyond the aver age manipulator of the paste and shears. He can administer physic and if the patient dies he can officiate at the funeral and then go to his sanc tum and write an obituary of the de ceased.

MAINE’S CANNING INDUSTRY. One Hundred nnd Seventy-Five Fac tories That Pay $1,400,000 a Year In Wnges. According to the report of Hon. S. W. Mathews, state industrial and labor commissioner, the Pine Tree state is the champ'on sarmne canning community of the country and is thir:' on the list of states that can sweet corn. In fact, Maine is the only state engaged in the industry of put ting up small herring and other suit able fish as sardines. There are about 175 canning factories within its bor ders, the value of which is about $1,214,900, and give employment to 15,000 operatives. The amount of wages paid in 1899 was about $1,400, 000; to the farmers for corn, $331,000, and the value of the entire output of all the factories was $5,300,089 dur ing the year, quotes the New York Sun. Over 11,000 acres were planted to sweet corn in 1899. The canning of clams, blueberries, apples, beans, squash, pumpkin and small fruits seems to be on the increase, accord ing to Mr. Mathews’ report, and he does not see any good reason why the industry should not increase largely in the packing of these arti cles. He also says that it appears to apples anil berries of Maine are su perior in quality to t..e same products in other states, owing, doubtless, to climatic conditions. In every kind of canning men. women and children arc paid remunerative wages, and the canning factories give to many poor families their only opportunity for earning money. WILL LAST -TWENTY YEARS. Durability of n Nctv Kind of Cloth tr lie Manufactured by Mills in EiikIiisiI. If the plans of certain English capi talists do not miscarry it will be possible ere long for the economical | parent to purchase a suit of clothes j which may be passed along among his sons for the fifth of a century, say* the Chicago Chronicle. Mills are now being built in England for the manu- j facture of this kind of long-wearing I material, which can be turned out j in almost any color wanted. Think of getting a suit of clothes that will j last for 20 years; that will cost only I n third more than a suit costs now, i and that will be absolutely water- j proof without appearing to be so. Revolutionize is rather an overworked j word, but it fits this case exactly. | Instead of singing: ‘‘Papa's pants j will soon fit Johnnie,” the refrain will j run: "Johnnie soon will wear pa’s pants," for when pa once begins to wear these extremely useful articles before Johnnie has got out of dresses ! he may continue to wear them for the ! next 20 years, and by that time John | nie will have grown up to them. The i same with little Mary and her moth I er’s skirts. Instead of cutting down the garments for the girl the moth er will wear them for a generation or sc and then turn them over to her daughter. A Hound’ll l.oiiur Trip. A hound was bought in Missouri : j and shipped in a closed express car ; to a ranch in Kansas. In a day or I two it was missing. Investigation proved that it had gone back to its j Missouri home, over a distance of 500 j miles, on a road entirely unknown to j the dog. ~ - -■-— RAILROAD TIME CARD. 8T. L. I. M. & 8. RAILWAY.
