MONEY GREW ON BUSHES.

The fairy tale of money growing
on busil-.es was lately realized ulong
tli right of way of the Burliogtoa
railroad between llyannis and Alli
ance, nays a Lineolu (Neb.) report.
A gang of section men were at
work, when one of them noticed
something that looked like a bill wav

flower growing by the roadside. lie

lie walked a few steps farther and
there, noddinir from a branch of a bit
of Aog fennel, was another bill of sim
He called to his companions, and
the entire gang threw down meir
tool-s and started on a money hunt.
For three hours they searched up and
down the right of way and far afield.
At aimotit every yard their trou
ble was rewarded by finding either
a five cr a ten-dollar bill. Some bills
were tangled in the tops of weeds,
others half hidden in bushes along
the, fence, and still others in the
stubble of the field.
The entire day's clean-up of tho
eight was $2,135. When the una wai
reoorted. word came irom neaaquar-
ters that a money pouch containing
$3,500 had been lost from an express
shipment the day before.
The supposition is that the bag fell
out of the open car door and was
ground to pieces under the wheels,
and the contents were scattered to
the wind. This hypothosis is sup
ported by the later discovery of por
tions of the damaged pouch.

Fine Apple Fed to the Pl Ileene
of the superabundant l'roduct
of the Orchard.
Rarely, if ever, has there been such
a superabundance of fruit as now
abounds in the Xe'" Kaglaud orchards.
The 'limbs of the apple and pear trees
hang heavy under the weight of their
enormous yield, and the ground be
neath the trees is covered with the de
caying droppings. In birnie localities
fine apples may be hnd for the picking,
and an offer of half a dollar a barrel
for the fruit on t'e tree is eagerly ac
cepted in the rural districts. Thou
sands of biihhels are being fed to the
cattle and pigs and the cider mills are
glutted with raw material for the
presses. It seems a pity to see such
a large quantity of fine fruit going to
waste. It is almost superfluous to of
fer suggestion in the line of thought
ful philanthropy to Dr. Hale, but the
glutted condition of the orchards sug
gests that it might be a good idea to
renew his farmers' fruit offering
scheme, which furnished such a liberal
supply of free fruit to the poor people
of Boston when it was originally un
dertaken. Undoubtedly a great many
bushels of apples can now be had for
