Coming down to our own time, and to
a brief consideration of the now popular
seedless oranges, it may be said that,
commercially, orange culture has existed
!n California only since 1ST2. Until that
time the hulk of the oranges used In
this country were imported from the
f edlterranean blood oranges from Va
lencia. Spain and Malta; the aromatic,
delicious little Tanglerines and Mandarins
from St. Michaels und TJsbon; and the
bitter oranges from Seville.
Seedless oranges were first introduced

No remedy that does not entirely remove the cause of Catarrh from the
blood will ever make a permanent cure of the trouble. Just as long as the
circulation remains contaminated with the impurities and catarrhal matters
which produce the trouble, the mucous membranes or inner linings of the
body will be kept in a state of irritation and disease. Sprays, lotions and
other local applications will sometimes temporarily relieve the tight, full
feeling in the head, buzzing noises in the ears, uncomfortable, stuffy feeling
of the nostrils, and help to loosen the mucus in the throat: but Catarrh fa a
constitutional blood disorder and until it has been entirely driven from the

the cause from the blood. It attacks the disease at its head and by thor

inflamed and irritated membranes to heal, improves the general health, and

A contemporary relates an extraor

Jaws, which, as It Is given with full
details, we accept In good faith. Tho
strength of a dog's Jaws nnd teeth
were never more exemplified than in
the case of a Ross-shlre gamekeeper,
whose, collie was unfortunate enough
to te caugnt in a steel vermin trap.
The gamekeeper, gun In hand, was
soon on the scene, but In the short
time the dog had become quite Infuri
ated with pain. Having nothing suit
able for muzzling the animal and fear
ing to place his foot upon the trap
spring with the dog's Jaws free, the
gamekeeper placed the gun' barrels In
the dog's mouth nnd held them there
while easing the spring.. With a vi
cious snap the teeth closed on the eold
steel ere he regained his .freedom. The
barrels, which are of steel, were holed
through an almost iucredible perform
anceand were examined shortly after.

Philadelphia Society to Build the
reatlmi society has given up its Idea of
going In for aeroplanes and. has or

said, will eclipse any in the United
States. The new balloon will replace
the rhiladelphla, which burst when a
few feet in the air on its first attempt
ed flight last summer, and will be
called rhiladelphla II. The Philadel
phia II. will have a 55,0(50 foot capac
ity and will be constructed by the
Theuplet system of overlapping blocks
of paramatta imported from France.
It will have a new float line of cocoa
nut fiber, which has been ordered from
a manufacturer In Italy.
The society expects to have tho bal
loon completed In about sixty days,
and during the second week In, April
the trial trip will be made. The soci
ety Is trying to arrange for a balloou

will attempt to have this event in May.
