Her two children, of Terr ten

threatened wlib imprisonment, and were evi

future, a winter wheat product of about 350,

The temperature of April has been lower
then uiual, and low-lying landa have been sat
iraled with moisture, retarding growth. : Well
drained wheat aoila are nearly everywhere
bearing ft vigoroua and healthy growth.
A few report of injury by the fly have been
received, but the aggregate loaa from inaect
ravagei will be trivial.
The winter wheat of New England la a
letrcely appreciable ft quantity. It condition
quite uniformly high. The Middle and

A recent writer, why is himself a gambler, ia
Out inclined to believe the atatement thai pro
fessional gamblers have a high standard of
honor among tlicmselvos. Ho says they are a
very suspicious body of men whose bond take!
the form of collateral aeonrity. The two chief
component parte, he aaya, that go to make np
tho professional gambler are cupidity and lazi
ness. These two characteristics predominating
result in the complete demoralization of tho
man. Ho sums np tho whole matter in this
way i ''A business that is illegitimate In itself
and drawa to Its support criminals from every
walk in crime, must on its face bo demoraliz
ing. I do not attempt to lay that every gam
bling room In Boston ia the constant and only
resort of criminals, but I do wish to be under
stood as saying that there is not ft game in this
or any other city that aoulil excludo a man on
social or moral grounds. Cash, no matter how
obtained, is tho 'opon sesame' in every in
stance. Tho conclusion! arrived at in thii
article have their foundation in solid fact, and
the deduction! and suggestions are the out
come of mature thought, by one who has made
tho subject a study, from the vantage ground
of the dealer's chair."
The present outlook of the wheat crop is
generally favorable, though a large part of it is
backward. Tlie returns indicate that the con
dition Is now 94 ft! compared with 100 repre
ssing a full average Tlita implies that the
present outlook Is 17 percent better than a year
ago. The area of the crop reported this season
le tbont 27,000,000 acres, and it is believed that
the yield will be about 350,000,000 bushejg.

A prominent English physician says that a
great many people who are afflicted with mor
tal maladies manage to live to a good old age.
In bis opinion more people are killed by fear
than by disease. There are innumerable In
I'ancca of persons dragging aloug for years in
dally expectation of death, and yet living to
the average, ago of man. Medicine is valuable.,
but it owes more to tho influence of bopo than
it does to drugs. Tlu brain, or mind organ, is
just aa much a part of the body as the liver or
the heart. Tlie influence of hope is frequently
manifested when there is a consultation of
phyaioians in the sick room. Generally the
treatment is not changed, but the patient feels
tho presence of skillful medical advisers, and
he at once calls np his reserve forces to fight
against disease. A resoluto and intelligent
hopefulness and confidence will do more to
ward off and cure sickness than anything else.

The old story about the invention of solldl-
Bed whisky comes no in a new shape. Thil
time tho story goes that a Gorman named
Fetcrman, living near Pittsbnrg, Tenn., haa
discovered ft way of solidifying whisky and
ticking in plugs like tobacco. A plug of
whisky is rather light in color, and can be
easily carried in the vost pocket. It can be
Aiiaolved in water or chewed up. The inventor
myi he can do nothing unless be has perfectly
pure alcohol. He therefore claims that his
solidified whisky will be the pure article, and
