WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22, 1885. The circuses are out of winter quar ters ami have taken the road. Life iusurance agents ought to be able to do a thriving business in the Illinois legislature. The London Times has a staff cor respondent on the way to Join lfce ©x" pedition against Riel. The old testament has 2,723,110 let ters. If any donbt the statement, they should make the court. Mrs. Carney of Pittsburg became so infatuated with base ball that »lie ne glected her family, and her husband is suing for a divorce. Bismarok is an honorary member of the Spring City, Pa. Literary society, which has an autograph letter from him accepting the honor in 1879. Advices from Shanghai state that a Chinese loan of half a million ster ling is stated to have been negotiated by Sir John Pender on the London market. The governor of Louisana has pro claimed quarantine against leading ports of Mexico, Ceutral and South America and the West ludies, to take effect May 15. A Columbia river salmon, sent as a present to Queen Victoria, went through from Portland to London tourteen days, and reached AN incisor castle in good condition. A girl in New York paid a matri monial bureau forty dollars for a hus band and on an interview he tlew the track, and she has brought suit for f5,000 for breach of promise. An alleged negro missionary giving the name of Sm^th and presenting testimonial to which John R. Gough's name appeared to be forged, has been swindling the Allentown, Pa. people Among the French laws is on® centuries old, which threatens the proof reader with death tor a single blunder. Such a law in this country would create a wonderful commotion A Minnesota farmer says he can keep one stove running six months on the sunflower stalks which will grow on an acre of ground. The seed produced will pay the cost of raising It would not cost much to try it, any how. The Fargo Argus thinks there is one class in tins country who have no stomach for a war with Russia—those who have to decipher the dispatches and guess at the jaw breaking Mus covite names—compositors and proof readers. A pastor in St. Paul has adopted the plan of calling the roll of his church membership on each Tliurs day evening at the opening of the prayer meeting. It is said to be the means of largely increasing the at tendance. An old veteran in St. Paul is repor ted in the Sunday Pioneer Press as saying recently, with great emotion: "The boys up there," pointing up "will be glad to see Grant half million are waiting *to fall in' when he comes." The Spaish government has instruc ted its ambassadors to the various powers to protest against the impo sition of quarantine on vessels from Spanish ports on account of a sus picious disease at Jativa. The govern ment states that the disease is fast disappearing. The National Rifle Association of Great Rritain have determined, be cause of the very grave and unsettled state of British political affairs both at home and abroad, that they will not be justified in accepting the chal lenge of the American National Rifle association to an international contest at Creedmore this year. The work of construction on the Duluth, Fargo & Black Hills is now being considered by the company. If circumstances warrant, at least fifty miles of the road will be graded and ironed during the coming summer, in time to take out the fall crop. The attempt to float the bonds in the East is expected to be successful. An anonymous note, enclosing $2, has been received by the New York board of education. The writer says the $2 is conscience money, returned to the school fund. When in school several year ago he misappropriated box of steel pens. The $2, he says will cover both principal and interest and will "ease the writer's mind up to date." Preston National Republicans: The National Republican is not in favor of the appointing power vested in gover nors of states and the president of the United States. It is a relic of bar barism and a monarchical practice unbecoming and mlschivous in a re public. It is a method by which the masses are defrauded of their rights. New York Sun: When Proctor Kuott made his fanciful Duluth speech, 15 years ago, the humor of the thing tickled the entire continent. x1o one dreamed that Duluth would ever amount to anything and when Knott called her "the paragon of cities" everybody laughed. Still this town is third in the list of grain-receiving points, beating Milwaukee, Toledo and St. Louis. About thirty years ago the captain of an emigrant ship, coming from Europe, had lost many of his passen gers by cholera, although freely dosing all who were sick with the remedies then usual. At last he made a pre scription of liis own—one teaspoonful of red pepper and a tablespoonful of salt to half a pint of boiling water this to be given as hot as pQssible, to every patient when first taken. It is said that this simple remedy acted as a charm, curing all the cases on board that ship, and attaining considerable general popularity during the time o/ cholera visitation. Red River Valley News: If It must bo confessed that the agricultural com munities must needs go to war with the commercial element that rules in the cities before righj shall be don* as to the bands that physically connect the two, then it may as well come at the next election as to be farther put off. If the railroads are to be masters of either city or country instead of the servauts of both, as they ought to bct the country must see that it does net become the slave. A very ourlous article of export was recently made to New Zealand. It consisted of a consignment of "bumble bees." At present clover does not 'seed" in that country, though it grows readily, because it is believed there are no bumble bees to fertilize the flowers. The importer hopes to remedy this difficulty by the intro duction of bumble bees. Ordinary honey bees will hardly answer the purpose as red clover blossoms are so coarse that honey bees can not work upon them. American Farmer: Get a few sheep and turn them in that poor lot, which does not produce enough grass to sup port cattle, if you have not manure enough to make it fertile to produue crops. Sheep will thrive in pastures and get fat where cattle would almost starve. They also scatter their drop pings over the fleld, and never fail to enrich lands where they are kept. On poor farms they are most emphati cally tho best factors for increasing fertility. On rich laud the same rule holds good, ae'they will make them richer. Ry the simple means of a portable shed, which can be moved about the field, and under which the sheep will readily congregate, the poorest spot may be made fertile, and the whole fleld, by frequent and regu lar changes of the flock, may be thoroughly enriched. This is a well known characteristic of the sheep, aud by such management as mentioned above, the thinnest farm may readilv enriched and made fertile. Credence is given by the best in formed authorities to the genuineness of an invention which, if it does what it promises, will create a revolution in #the business of telegraphing. In brief it is said that, by a machine now com pleted and in satisfactory operation, the use of the Morse alphabet will be entirely discarded, trained operators will no longer be necessary, while the process ,of telegraphing will be as signally expedited as its cost will be reduced. The new instrument resem bles, It is reported, an ordinary type writer, and is operated in the same way. It can become at will either rc ceiver or transmitter. A pressure up on a key representing any letter not only records the letter on a slip of paper in full view, so that the sender can be sure of absolute accuracy, but by which the corresponding key in the receiving machine is similarly af fected, though at any distance. Ex periments tried over one hundred miles of wire are said to have been conducted with entire satisfaction. If this process proves as simple and suc cessful as it is claimed to be, the dream of printing by telegraph will at last be realized. For that is what this inven tion practically means. Anybody who can operate a type-writer can send a message, and anybody who can read print can receive one. Speed of trans mission will correspond to the possi bilities of spelling out the message on the.keyboard, and that, according to experience with the type-writer, cau be done at the rate of from fifty words a minute upward, according to the degree of proficiency. Not the least advantage of the new system would be its accuracy, avoiding all errors of unskillful operators. The cost of tele graphing would be immensely re duced by its introduction, aud the telegraph would come into almost as common use as the telephone. Farther news of the invention will be awaited with no slight interest. For if it prove all that it is said to be, the conception marks an era in progress and a revolu tion in the business of transmitling news second only to that which fol lowed the invention of the Morse system itself.—Pioneer Press. Babyhood, the only periodldil in the world devoted wholly to the care ot young children, has succeeded in securing the services of eminent specialists in every subject with which it deals.

NOTES. From' ^e Real K«tata Register. Farming and Mining* Western papers report that large numbers of discouraged farmers have turned their attention to prospecting for and working mines. Any kind of mine answers their purpose. All is fisli that comes to thoir net. In Illi nois they arc hunting for lead, in Montana for cupper, in Missouri for iron and coal, and in Wisconsin for varieties of earth that are used in the manufaeturd of cheap paint. The reports do not state that these hordes of prospectors have found anything of value. Prospecting for buried treas ures goes on just as briskly whether the labor is rewarded by discovery or not. It is all a question of hope and faith. These disheartened farmers have turned their backs on wheat and corn forthe present and arc determin ed woo another means of support from the bosom of the common mother. It is a pity that such cour age and labor should be misdirected. But it is the simple truth to say that they could not easily have selected an occupation less likely than prospect ing to pay the cost of the leather worn out in it. It would be hardly less foolish to devote themselves to the raising of sorghum for sugar, as some Western journals have often advised them to do. The proportion of blanks to prizes is probably larger in the business of mining than in any other calling to which men can devote their energies The past year made a dismal record of failures in nearly every branch of it. A few persons were lucky enough to strike productive copper veins in Montana, pocket, or surface deposits of tin in Dakota and South Carolina, with a promis, it is said, of a still richer field in the former territory and oil and gas in paying quantities in Pennsylvania. The fields of gold and silver have npt been extended during the year. There have been scores of announcements of new finds of the precious metals in New York Virginia, and other States east of the Rocky Mountains, but not onp of them has thus far proved worth working The men who discovered them have not been able to raise money for their development or to sell tliem to an in credulous public. To the finders they have been only a cause of expense and disappointment. The thousands of men who followed this will-o -tlie-wisp last year would be lar better off to day if they had stuck to any of the ordinary pursuits of life. Even where labor was in the least demand and its reward the poorest and most precari ous, there was more to be made from it than from tramping over the coun try in search of mineral outcrops. The farmer is the last man who should abondon his acres and the business he understands to engage in the great uncertainties of mining. The weevil, blight, low prices, and all the misfortunes that assail him as a farmer are risks more easily survived than those attendant upon searching for the working mines. The intelli gent and patient cultivator of the soil can get a living out of it at the worst, lie can eat of what he grows. But minerals are not food, and a man may starve with a gold mine in sight. Western farmers are not deficient in good sense—though they have their little aberrations and we doubt not that after a short trial of the notori ous adversities of the mini's life, they will gladly lay down the pick axe and resume the shovel and the hoe. Keep the storms. L. H. PUSHOR 10t6 Sec. 18, town «f Morris. Mishler's Herb Bitters cures cholera morbus, and thus gets the better of the complaint every time. Samuel Anderson, a blacksmith, living three miles from Springfield, O., writes: "I was taken with a severe attack of cholera morbus—BO severe that I was unable to straighten myself. After taking two doses of your Bitter* I was iihtirely cured." stock out of the cold Keep youl'fowls tame if you want them to be profitable. Fowls that are often frightened by the owner or al lowed te be chased by dogs, are as a general thing not very profitable. Telegraph wires have to be renewed every five or seven years. The West ern Union Telegraph Co. exchange about one thousand tons of old wire for new every year. The new wire costs from seven cents to eight cents per pound, and for the old about one eight of a cent a pound is allowed. In the Michigan Farmer a farmer tells how he manages to conquer Canada thistles by the help of his 200 sheep. He puts a small handful of salt on each thistle at the root. The sheep eat the thistle close to the ground. The salting Is repeated as often as may be necessary, and the thistle seldom appears the second year. Newly set fruit trees should not be neglected. The first two or three years are important ones in the lives of a tree. It can then be sparingly pruned in the spring, summer, autumn or winter. If the grower sees a branch which needs the knife he should at tend to it on the spot, no matter what the season may be. Severing a slen der twig then may spare the cutting of a large branch a few years later. The earth should be kept tight about the base of a young tree, and if it leans too much it should be staked. "As the twig is. bent so ia the tree in clined." As to the distance of 95,000,000 miles, cannon ball would travel it in about fifteen years. It may help us to re member that at the speed attained by the limited express on our railroads, a train which had left the sun for the earth when the Mayflower sailed from Delfbaven with the Pilgrim Fathers, and which ran at that rate day and night, would in 1884 still be a journey of some years away from its terres trial station. The fare, at the custo mary rates, it may be remarked, would be rather over $2,500,000, so that itis clear that we should need both money aud leisure for the journey. A citizen of Pattersonville Iowa writing to the Scientific American de scribes a novel method ot extinguish ing fires which was successfully tried at that place. He says: We had what seemed to us rather a novel mode or extinguishing a Are. On Sunday morning, Feb. 10, the sexton of the Congregational church built a fire in the furnaco, and left It to heat up the church. On his return to ring the bell for services, he discov ered the audience and furnace room densely filled with smoke he at once rang the alarm. A crowd soon col lected, but, in the absence of any ap paratus for extinguishing flre, all hopes were given up of saving the building, as the flre was under the floor between the joists. Dr. N. G, O. Coad went to his store and procured two or three buckets full of common soda and a bucket full of sulphuric acid water was then poured on the soda, aud the acid emptied in a tub full of water. The windows were then opened, in order to lift the smoke from the room. The material thus prepared was emptied into the register of the furnace the ex periment was a success, as the flre was extinguished instantly. The floor was then partly torn up to make sure when it was found that a large num ber of the joists were entirely burned through. The church was saved, and the entire business portion of the vil lage, as the wind was blowlug a gale aud nothing but frame buildings, mercury down 20 degrees below zero, aud a scarcity of water, presented rather a gloomy aspect to the citizens.

They should not be hung so high that one has to stretch one's neck to see them. A picture highly worked up in detail should be closer to the eye than a strong, broad composition, in which all parts of the composition are put in in masses. Family pictures should be con fined to family rooms. The light on a picture should come from the same side as the light in a picture. Pictures on the line of sight should be hung flat on the wall those above the line of sight may for convenience of inspection be tilted slightly forward. Large heavy frames should never be tiltea forward directly above sofas or chairs that are close to the wall. They always seem dangerous. It is not pleasant to have the consciousness of a two hundred pound man just over one's head, and his whole body swung out of the center of gravity. Groups of pictures are only effective when there is harmony of subject, of color and of fitness in the framing. Old paintings and new ones almost always 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 exe cutioner and a decapitated victim on one side of him, and a lugubrious Christian martyr by Max on the other. It was almost as distressing as a cruci fixion in a billiard-room or the death of Marat in a bath-room. It is not appe tizing to have realistic pictures of dead fish in the dining-room, nor does it add to the cheerfulness of a parlor to give "The Death Bed of Abraham Lincoln" a prominent place. Glazed pictures should never be hung opposite a win dow, as they are sure to reflect the light disagreeably. Masonic certifi cates, certificates of membership in a missionary society, etc., are not pic tures at all, no matter how much orna mented. They are purely personal af fairs, and should not be framed or hung at all. They interest nobody but the owner and his dearest friends, and are almost never ornamental. One should not be egotistical in his pictures any more than in his conversation.—New York Independent. •'Pap" Merrill. Many are the stories told of "Pap" Merrill, the late deceased manager of the Milwaukee Road. He was nobly revered by the employes everywhere on the road. "The boys" were strongly attached to the "old man," as he was called. One day he was going over the road, and, while the train was waiting at a station, the "wheel tester," atrusty Irishman, was busy tapping the coach wheels with his long-handled hammer. %Mr. Merrill watched him a few mo ments, and, approaching the man, said: "Let me take that hammer and show you how to try a wheel." Tho Irish man paid no attention to him, hut kept on with his work. Several times Mr. Merrill asked for the hammer as he fol lowed the man from wheel to wheel, but the fellow never looked at him. He passed to the other side of the train, when the conductor said: "Mike, why didn't you give the 'old man1 tho ham mer?" "Pwhat's thatyesay? tho 'old man1 is it?" said Mike, straightening tip with much surprise, and quickly started for Mr. Merrill. Approaching him graciously and with a reverent bow, he said: "Mr. Merrill, I beg yer pardon, sir, for not spakin to ye, sir, a bit ago. I did not know it was you at all, sir, and ye know that if I paid attention to every d—d fool that comes along I'd have no time to attend to me business.1' The Celestial Empire.
