The plant attains a height of from two to four feet, with woody stems, wide spreading branches and bright green foliage. Its fruit3 are produced in clusters and are of a yellow color. The seed-pods are soft and wooly in texture, and contain two or three seeds of the size of a Brazilian bean. Their flavor is a little like opium and their taste is sweet; the odor from them produces a sickening sensation and is slightly offensive. The seeds, when pulverized and taken in small quantities, have a pe culiar effect upon man. He begins to laugh loudly ,boisterously,then he sings, dances and cuts all n.anner of fantastic capers.

'Next to the art of living justly and kindly with our fellows comes the art of maintaining a life of hap piness and tranquillity," writes the Rev. Dr.. Newell Dwight Hillis, of "The Secrets of a Happy Life," in the May Ladies' Home Journal." "For the soul was made for joy and good cheer- Life is a school; labor and sorrow, victory and defeat toil together as teachers,but happiness is life's aim and graduating point. Next to t he duty of self-denial comes the duty of delight. What ripeness is to an orange, what soDg is to the lark, what culture, refinement are to i the intellect, that happiness is to the the soul. As vulgarity and ignor ance betoken a neglected mind, so unhappiness and misery proclaim the neglected heart. The normal na ture will keep strong and fresh the chords that vibrate joy. Depression and worry take the nerve out of the man's arm, take the keen edge from his mind, rob life of its victory. For unhappiness wins no battles, gloom invent no tool, wretchedness writes no drama. Earth's great achievements represent those whose hearts saug over the task. To n.eet storm with calm, defeat with faith. ingratitude with charity, is not an easy tiling. .Nothing requires so much wisdom, practice and skill as learning how to live habitually above the distemperatures of life." His remains were brought Rev. E. Edwards', pastor of the Ekglis Baptist Church at Miners ville, Pa., when suffering with rheu matism, was advise to try Chamber laiu's Pain Balm. He says: "A few applications of this liniment proved of great service to me. It subdued the inflammation and re lieved the pain. Should any sufferer profit by giving Pain Balm a trial it will please me." For sale by F. J Wattron, Druggist. A BIG BATTLE AT CALTJM-PIT. The Insurgents Making a Last Desperate Stand. Manila, April 26 General Mac Ar thur's division of 6,000 troops annihi lated the insurgents at Calumpit to day. Aguinaldo's troops made a stub born resistance but were driven to the hills. Eight Americans were killed. Calumpit is the key to the whole of northern Luzon. Aguin aldo's army to-uay is defending Ca lumpit energetically, which is said to indicate that the rebels are finally making that place their last ditch or stand, which the Americansexpected them to make at M alólos. For the first time the Filipinos are employ ing artillery. They brought two guns into action in the trenches to day before Calumpit,firing modern shrapnel, which burst over the heads of Gen. Wheaton's men without ef fect. Fighting was resumed at six o'clock this morning. During the night engineers repaired the Bag nag bridge, thus enabling the troops to cross the river. Wheaton's bri gade advanced in extended order, with the Kansas regiment west of the railroad, the Montana regiment to the east, and took up position covering one and a half miles on the south bank of the Rio Grande. On the opposite banks were fortified trenches from which a few American soldiers would be able to defy thou sands.so strongly ware they con structed.

Buntain, superintendent of forest reserves for New Mexico and Arizona, now stationed at Santa Fe, arrived Monday. The next day, ac companied by W. H. Thayer, forest ranger, he went to Show Low to in spect and report upon the condition of the reserve. Mr. Buntain is an energetic, shrewd and practical man and immediately grasped the situa tion here. He realizes that this is preeminently a grazing country, and as the cattle ara moving out, Awarded Highest Honors World'. Fair, DUr sheep raising will in futura be thai main industry of this section, and if the grazing of sheep on the re serve is prohibited, it will result in absolute ruin to this county, and hopeless bankruptcy to northern Arizona. He realizes further that the sheep and cattle by keep ing down the rank growth of grass in the timer and tramping the com bustible pine burrs into the ground, preventing a large deposits of dry grasses and weeds form forming in the forest is the only real prevention against forest fires, the trees btitg scattered, the fire will be unable to spread for want of an intervening aliment. This fact has been thor oughly demonstrated during the last fifteen years. Since sheep have been grazing in the forest destruc tive forest fir 68 have seldom occured and a rank growth of underbrush have appeared in many places in consequence thereof, and the value of the forest greatly enhanced. The forest is on that account in far bet ter condition than it was fifteen years ago. It is further charged that the sheep herders start the for est fires and by their exclusion the forest fires will cease. Upon this proposition as well -as proceeding ones we welcome the investigation of the forest superintendent and his rangers, and it will be found that in four cases out of five the forest fires are started by Indians who in doing so have a threefold object in view: First, they believe that the smoke ascending in the heavens forms clouds and produces rain: Second ly, ground is therby cleared on which to plant corn: Thirdly, the fire scares up game. It is true that fires are set out by white men, some times through carelessness and at other times through pure cussedness, but this would occur just the same if there was not a single sheep on the whole reserve, or within one hundred miles thereof. We are glad, on this account, to welcome the forest ranger, who will no doubt bring some of these fire fiends be fore the tribunals of justice, and put a stop to this specie of incendiar ism, placing the onus upon the pro per part es. Superintendent Buntain assured our citizens that the order directing the sheepmen to move their flocks off the reserve would be promptly rescinded, and upon presentation to the department of the true facta in the case, permits would be issued to sheepowners to run their sheep on the reserve under proper restric tions, and that the policy of the gov ernment was not to destroy the in dustries of any section, but to pro tect and encourage tbem. This as surance on the part of Mr, Buntain is highly gratifying to every one, and the temporary check experienced in business during the last six months, owing to the uncer tain future of the sheep industry, has been dispelled, and from now on renewed activity will be witness ed in all lines of business.
