PINE LAND SUITS.
The Long: Expected Attacks on Lum

The First One Against the Ackley
Lumber Company—Similar to the
Report of the Minnesota Insurance
ST. PAUL, Feb. 21,—One of the long
expected and famous pine land suits has
been brought at last, and is entitled the
State of Minnesota against the Ackley
The suit is filed in Itasca county, in
the Fifteenth judicial district, and de
mands that the permit heretofore issued
to the defendant be revoked and that
the plaintiff have judgment for the cost
of the timber heretofore cut on the
premises described. The action is sub
stantially the same as tried in Princeton
against C. A. Smith before Judges Bax
ter §,nd Searles in which the state re
covered judgment and had an order to
set the permit aside.

ST. PAUL, Feb. 21.—Insurance Com
missioner Smith has completed that part
of his report for 1893 which deals with
fire insurance companies. As compared
with the report of 1892, it shows large
losses for the companies, the percentage
of losses incurred to premiums received,
being 87, against 48 for last year. It
cost the companies 35 per cent to do
business, so that their record for 1893
leaves them 22 per cent worse than noth
ing. The statements of business for 20
years shows that the percentage of loss
has only twice been higher, once in
1878, when it was 98 and again in 1880
when it was 106. The average ratio of
loss has been 62.
The total amount of risks written in
1893 was $197,663,310, against $231,346,
587 in 1892. The premiums received
amounted to $2,809,321.68, against
$3,131,323.85 for 1892. The average
premium rate was $1.42, against $1.35
in 1892. The losses incurred were
$1,490,915.09 for 1892 and $2,430,342.19
for 1893. These are the figures for the
American companies. For foreign com:
panies with branches in the United
States there is less difference in the
figures for the two years. They run
as follows: Risks written in 1892,
$63,534,967 1893, $66,183,967 premiums,
received. 1892, $1,073,005.20 1893,
$1,055,965 average premium rate, 1892,
$1.61, 1893,.$1.60 losses incurred, 1892,
$533,108, 1893, $913,566.27 ratio of loss
to premiums received, 1892, 57, 1893, 87.
The figures of the mutual companies
are less complete. The risks for 1892
were $2,527,532, against, $2,851,214 for
1893 premiums, 1892, $77,539.22, 1893,
$83,747.42, losses incurred, 1892, $53,
06b. 20, 1893, $46,098.56. The year was
a bad one for fire companies and with
the opening of 1894, 15 companies have
withdrawn from this state and only one
new company has been admitted. The
losses in this state, however, have been
lighter than many others.
"Jagr Cur a Out
LANSING, Mich.,Feb. 21.—The supreme
court has knocked out what is known as
Michigan's "jag cure law" of 1893. The
law allowed justices in their discretion
to sentence disorderlies to take the cure
for the liquor habit. The court says the
law in effect permits unofficial persons
to prescribe rules acquitting persons
charged with crime, and they may be
variable as corporations are numerous,
and it is not in the province of legislation
to delegate to private corporations
power to make laws for the discharge of

Washington for the road now known as
the Washington and the Columbia River

Some years ago an eccentric genius,
the Rev. Thomas P. Hunt, used to givg
temperance lectures. One night he an
nounced that he would lecture at a cer
tain Pennsylvania town. Now, temper
ance was not in favor among the male
portion of that burg.
The women, however, were all for the
"pledge," and consequently on Hunt's
first visit not a man showed himself.
The benches were pretty well filled with
women, though, and Hunt commenced.
But instead of temperance he took them
to task about the vanities of dress, etc.
They wore great stuffed feather sleeves
then. They—the sleeves—caught it, then
the tight lacings, and so on through the
whole catalogue of female follies, but nc
word about intemperance.
The ladies went home nearly mad, told
their husbands about it and voted old
Hunt a regular humbug. He announced
he would lecture at the same place the
next night. Long before the time ap
pointed, the people began to arrive, and
when Hunt hobbled down the aisle the
building was completely filled with men.
The old fellow looked about, chuckled
and said in a low voice, "Hogs, I've got
The audience stared.
"Aha, hogs, I've got you now!" he re
After the crowd had got quiet a little
the lecturer said:
"Friends, you wanted to know what 1
meant by saying, 'Hogs, I've got you
now!' and I'll tell you. Out west the
hogs run wild, and when folks get out
'Of meat they catch a young pig, put a
strap under his body and hitch him to a
young sapling that will just swing him
from the ground nicely. Of course he
squeals and raises a rumpus, when all
the old hogs gather around to see what
is the matter, and then they shoot them
at their leisure. Last night I hung a pig
up. I hurt it a little, and it squealed.
The old hogs have turned out tonight to
see the fun, and I'll roast you."
And so he did, pitching into their
favorite vice with much evident relish
and gusto.—American Home Life.

The following is told by Boniface De
"Witt of the Riggs House:
"Dr. Talmage was preaching at Belle
ville, N. J., some years ago, and one
week he made up his mind to go into the
pulpit the next Sunday without notes or
memoranda of what he was going to say.
He memorized his sermon and believed
he had it completely at his tongue's end.
So Sunday night he .went to the church
pretty well fortified with confidence.
"In those days in that section of Jer
sey churches and hotels and many pri
vate residences were equipped with pri
vate gas machines, and the church where
Talmage was to hold forth had one too.
When he got into the pulpit after con
ducting the preliminary services all
right, he gave out his text. Then he was
horrified to find that he couldn't think of
a thing to say. He repeated the text a
second time, and yet his ideas failed to
come. He was in agony and began
slowly and impressively to announce his
text a third time. As he reached the
last word and the perspiration of dread
and shame was beginning to start, the
gas went out and plunged the place into
utter darkness. There was no other
means for lighting the edifice, and when
it was announced that the gas machine
had broken down hopelessly Dr. Tal
mage pronounced the benediction, and I
have heard him say that he never did so
before or since with greater fervor or
thankfulness of spirit."—Washington

Molting has its analogy throughout
the animal kingdom. We indeed molt
invisibly, are continuously shedding our
scales, but there are some animals that
get through this process even more quick
ly than do birds—as, for instance, the
shedding of the skin as a whole, by the
newt, eft and snake.
Sir James Paget has noted that some
people have a few extra long hairs grow
ing out from the general mass of the
eyebrows. The few long hairs are repre
sentatives of a permanent condition in
the chimpanzee and some baboons. They
grow out separately from the general
hairy mass over the superciliary ridges.
Darwin notes as a significant fact that
the palms of the hands and the soles of
the feet of man are quite naked of hairs,
like the inferior surfaces of all four ex
tremities in most of the lower animals.
Something about the ear: The lobule
of the ear is peculiar to man. There is,
however, a rudiment of it in the gorilla.
Happy gorilla—and man!
About the brain of man and apes: The
whole comparison is one of degree, and
in the case of the bushman's brain with
that of a well developed ape the com
parison becomes nearly equal. In truth,
there are no specific distinctions between
the brain of the ape and that of man.—
Of the 36 women who, under the lead
ership of Miss Annette Daisy, made a
run into the Cherokee strip when it was
opened last September, 22 have persever
ed in their undertaking and are now
hauling the lumber themselves for a
house of 15 rooins, which they will occu
py. Their section of 480 acres is well wa
tered and timbered. They already have
three teams, two cows, chickens and
other stock, and, neatly dressed in short
skirts that come just below the knee and
are met by heavy wooh^n leggings that
cover the legs from knee to ankle, they
appear ready for all the farming opera
tions their pioneer enterprise involves.—
Never condemn your neighbor un
heard, however many the accusations
which may be preferred against him.
Every story has two ways of being told,
and justice requiresthat you should hear
the defense as well as the accusation, and
remember that the malignity of enemies
may place yon in a similar predicament.

The inference is plain. Hood's Sar

genuine merit. It maintains a high
