New York City, in refe of the reference to the values of different breeds of draft horses, said: "I keep exchnngc nnd sale stables for horses. Don't deal on my own account to any extent. All clas8csof horsss. amounting to several thousand annually, come to my stables from all sections of the couii'ry. A large number of these are draft horses of the different bieeds, the Clydesdales, the French horses called Percherons or Normans, the English aud Belgian. There seems to be a larger demand for the"French horses than for any other breed. "Some years ago we used to get a great many horses from Upper Canada. These were Clydes dales. and would weigh from 1.400 to 1600 pounds, but they did not seem to answer the purpose, as a general thing their feet were thin she! led and flat, and being heavv horses their feet would become sore and "would not stand the pavements. The French horses have good feet and stand the pave ments better than the Clydesdales. That is the rea80M they sell better. "I would advise the farmers and Breeders who are breeding horses to sell on the New York mar. ket lor draft purposes to breed from the French horses in preference to all others."—ChicagoTrib une. The best horses to be found in France are re. corded with pedigrees in full in the 1'ercheron Stud Bood of that country. At the great Importing and breeding establish ment of M. \V. Dunham, Wayne, DuPage Co., Illinois, hundreds of the finest specimens of this famous race can be found at all times. vH* in presents given nway SL A A A A /^kScnd us 5 cents postage, J) 2i UU.UU GOLD (Jan by mail you will get free, a package of gootls of largo value, that will start yon in work that will at once bring you in money faster than any thing else in I merica.

So far ns he can find, there are no speculators interested in the matter. Nearly every desirable quarter section is occupied by men who give evidence of being bona fide settlers, and to whom it will be a grevious hardship if they are driven out. As to the Indians, Mr. Rice says there are only 1,100 of them, including women and children, and large tracts are wholly unoccupied* They have grazing land sufficient tor 10,000 head ot e*lfcle~ These facte are worth the careful consideration li not «rrong to th» Too Sleepy to Te A commercial travc».

Now, I have no desire to cast any shadow of doubt upon the brother's narrative, I know that men do grow very drowsy on the cars, and that a passenger might sleep 194 miles be yond his designation. I know that he might. But also, dearly beloved, I know that he does'nt. Because—let me whisper in your ear—while the passenger might be very drowsy, the conductor, isn't. He is painfully wide-awake. You try him once. You buy a ticket to Peekskill and then try to sleep through to Albany, and just observe how awfully, how adamanti cally hard is the platform at Pokeep sie when you land down on it. Ah, no, brethern, even the sleepiest men do not^sleep 194 milts bcj'ond the limits of their ticket. They are will ing to tlicv try to sometimes, but they don't. In order to insure the successful performance of this feat ot drowsiness, the conductor must be as sleepy as the passengers. Which he never is.—Toledo Blade. It's a great age for newspaper en terprise. An entity new aud inter esting variety of it has developed iu St. Paul. There was a corrupt time when tuppenny sheets boldly offered themselves for sale to candidates for political honors. A fresh young man of St. Paul has developed an esthetic variation of this. His scheme is to publish a paper in two editions. One edition is to be supremely virtuous, bold in its opinions, unapproachable by the minions of corruption. The other edition is to be offered for sale —:—:———, Terms: Press. to the highestJiidcfef,,^ftfiii^t !c, and its purchase is to I^«l6n|itt ted, as a "business propositioii,^ men who are saved from treating tliir youth to summary ejection only by, "•J pity for the marvelous vacuum which nature left in his intellectual aud moral perceptions. The "special edition" scheme is capable of infiuite adaptations. As a new departure in either journalism or politics, it really doesn't promise much but as a prac tical combination of exceeding iresl ness with exceeding shamelessness, it is an immense snjeess* However, it is proper to remark that this two faced two-eoiliou scheme wasaclnmsy afterthought contrived by this freslt young man as an apology for having sold out to Rice when Merriatu had decliued to pay the price the boy demanded lor his support.—Pioneer How to Han? Pictures. In regard to the hanging of pictures, a few cardinal principles should not be lost sight of. Pictures are made to be seen. They should not be huug so high that one has to stretch oue'* neck to see them. A picture hig"^ worked up in detail should be closeF. to the eye than a strong, broad com position, in which all parts of the coniposisiion arc put io masses^ Family pictures should be confined to family rooms. The light on a picture should come from the same side as the light iu a picture. Pictures on the line of sight should be hung flit ou the wall those above tbe line of sight ni iv for convenience of in spection be tilted slightly forward, Large heavy frames should never,be titled forward directly above sofas or chairs that are close to the wall. They always seem dangerous. It is not pleasant to have the consciousuess of a two hundred pound man just over one's head, and his whole body swung out of the eentcr of gravity. Groups of pictures arc only effective when there is harmony of subject, of color and of fitness iii the framing. Old paintings and new ones almost alwaya injure each other when hung close together. Few pictures should be hung in the dining-room, and care should be taken in the selection of subjects. The writer was once obliged to take his dinner with an Oriental executioner and a decapitat ed victim on one side ot him, and si lugubrious Christion martyr 011 Max 011 the other. It was almost as dis tressing as a crucifixion in a billiard room or the death of Marat iu a bath room, It is not appetizing to have realistic pictures ol dead fish iu tho dining-room, nor does it add to the cheerfulness of a parlor to give "The Death Bed of Abraham Lilcon," prominent place. Glazed pictk» should Lever be hung opposite aj-"^ in bit, conversation-. ent. Newspapers of To day. People generally, and even those who may be termed steady readers and close observers, have but a faint con ception of the magnitude and inflence the press of this country lias attained. From a careful examination of the ad« vance pages of the 1885 edition of tlm' American Newspaper Directory, is sued May 1st, by Geo. P. Howell & Co., of New York, it appears that there are 14,147 newspapers and periodicals published in the United States and. Canada of these tbe United States has 12,973, an average of one paper for every 3,867 persons. In 1884 the totaf' number of newspapers wsis less oy 823 than at present, and while the giiia this year is not so marked as In soriM previous years, it is still considerable.'
