argi- -WJWff II A Tree Thnt Got .llml. A gentleman of tbis place has a tree which is a species of acacia. It was grown from a seed brought from Australia. The tree now a papling Borne eight feet in height, and is in full foliage and growing rapidly. It is leguminous, and very distinctly shows the characteristic of the mimosa or sensitive plant. Regularly every evening, about the time the chickens go to roost, the tree goes to roost. The leaves fold together and the ends of the tender twigs coil themselves up like the tail of a well-conditioned pig. After one of the twigs has been stroked or handled the leaves move uneasily and are in a sort of mild commotion for a minute or more. All thiB was known about the tree, but it was not until yesterday that it was discover ed that the tree had in it much more of life aud feeling than it had ever before been credited with. The tree being in quite a small pot, one which it was fast out-growing, it was thought best to give it one of much larger Bize. Yesterday after noon the tree was transferred to its new quarters. It resented the oper ation to the best of its ability. Arriving at his residence about the time the tree bad been trans planted, the gentleman found the house in grand commotion. On ask ing what was up he was told that they had transplanted the tree ac cording to orders, and the operation had made it very mad. Hardly had it been placed in its new quarters before the leaves began to stand up in all directions like the hair on the tail of an angry cat, aud soon the whole plant was in a quiver. This could have been endured, but at the same time it gave out an odor most pungent and sickening just such a Binell as is given oil- by rattlesnakes aud many other kinds of snakes in summer when teased. ThiB odor so filled the house and was so sicken ing that it was found necessary to open the doors and windows. It was fully an hour before the plant calmed down and folded its leaves in place. It would probably not have given up the fight even then had it not been that its time for going to rest had arrived. It is probably needless to add that the whole household now staud in not a little awe of the plant as being a thing more animal or reptile than vegetable. Virginia (JVei) Enter prise. ..omtm of Money. "Pardon mo for troubling you, sir, but did you drop a twenty-dollar gold piece?" asked a man with an earnest look on his face and a mem orandum book in Iiir hand of a well drossed individual on the corner of Jefferson and "Woodward Avenues, Detroit. The man addressed ran his baud nervously into various pockets and replied : "Well, now, I declare I Can it be possible that I was so cnrcless as to drop that coin? Yes, it's gone. I must have lost it right here, near where wo staud." The man opened his memorandum-book, took from his vest pocket the stub of a lead peucil and said : "Will you favor me with your name and address?" They were given, and the ques tioner started on, when the well dressed man cried : "Hi, there! Where's the money. Give me my gold piece." "Ob, I didn't find any money. I took a notion tbis morning that in a city like this, where thousands and thousands of dollars are handled every hour, there must bo great losses, and started out to investigate the matter. Between here and the river I found seven men that lost twenty-dollar gold pieces, and I ex pect to run the list up to 200 before I reach the City Hall. Good day, sir." A Cheerful Face. There is no greater every-day vir tue than cheerfulness. This quality in man among men is like sunshine to tho day or gentle renewing moist ure to parched herbs. The light of a cheerful face diffuses itself and communicates the happy spirit that inspires it. The soureBt temper must sweeten in the atmosphere of con tinuous good humor. As well might fog and cloud aud vapor hope to cling to the Bun-illumined land scape as the "blues" and moroseness to combat jovial speech and exhila rating laughter. Be cheerful al ways. There is no path but will be easier traveled, no load but will bo lighter, no shadow on heart or brain , Imt will lift sooner in presence of a determined cheerfulness. It may at times 6eem difficult for tho happiest tempered to keep the countenance of peace and content, but the diffi culty will vanish when we truly consider that sullen gloom and pas sionate despair do nothing but multiply thorns and thicken sor rows. Ill comes to us providen tially as good and is a good, if we rightly apply its lessons. Why not, then, cheerfully accept the ill, and thus blunt its apparent sting. The Discipline of Drmlgery. A "liberal education" ie a capital thing, and the thousands of young men who are now honored with the title of A. B. arc to be congratulated upon the good fortune which has permitted them to acquire the men tal discipline resulting from a four years' cburse of academic 6tudy. Bat these young men must not make the mistake of supposing that this discipline is an all-suflicient prepara tion for the higher callings of life. That is, the young men who propose to enter any of the branches of pro fessional life, for instance, must not imagine that the fact of their having college education will permit them to leap to the top rung of the ladder at once. The discipline they have is valuable, but chiefly so as a basis for the acquirement of practical knowledge, without which success is impossible. By practical knowl edge we mean acquaintance with the minuthe or little details which go to make up all occupations. Such knowledge a college education can not give. It is only to be acquired by patient application. The disci pline of the college curriculum must be supplemented by another kind of discipline, namely, the discipline of drudgery. No one, however largely endowed with mental power, can be exempted from the necessity of acquiring this discipline. It is far more essential to success than the discipline furnished by a course. college A ScrinoB oh Eu?ly ITIurrIag:e. The Rev. W. A. Robinson of Cleveland, Ohio, said last Sunday in a sermon : "I believe that the scrip tures teach that early marriage is desirable. Solomon says : 'Rejoice with a wife in thy youth.' We find the same implication in Isaiah where tho fact is used as an illustration: 'For as a young man marricth a vir gin, bo shall thy sons marry thee.' Again Malachi : 'Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against tho wife of his youth.' The same implication occurs again and again in the teach ing of the book. Not that it in any wise authorizes a man to rush into marriage before he is qualified to support a wife, or before due con sideration is given to the matter, but if he have a good trade or pro fession, or lawful business, which has the reasonable promise of sup port in it, and have correct morals, is uot that capital? I verily believe tho laud would be vastly better if all young people would be content to begin life humble if need be and build up their fortune and their homes together aa the birds do their nests. Then, again, an early mar riage secures a more ready assimila tion of character and tastes. It fur nishes a worthy object which stimulates to industry. It saves many of those temptations against which the charms of a christian homo iu wedlock is the Burest pro tection." Mr. Sides, who was bitten some lime ago by a dog that was supposed to bo rabid, and went to Illinois iu search of a mad-stone, returned last Tuesday. Ho found tho stone, so wo are informed, for we have not seen him, of which he was in search aud applied it to tho wound where it remained 100 hours less the time it took to purify the stone. When the stone was filled with poison it dropped from the wound and was then put iuto sweet milk which drew out the poison, and when tho stone was thus purified it was again applied to tho wound. This course was repeated until the stone would no longer adhere to the wound. The poison was then considered all out of the system and tho patient free from further danger. The stone is a very small one, not larger than a kernal of corn, aud usually brings its owner five dollars an hour for its use, though we are iuformed that it cost Mr. Sides only $25 for its uso in his case; this besides traveling expenses and time, has been a pret ty costly dog bito to Mr. Sides, .and still hundreds of worthless curs are allowed to run at large to the great danger to the lives and happiness of the people. Clay County Journal. The time for making hay is at hand. There never was a finer quality or a larger quantity on these prairies than is seen this year. Let every farmer or any other person having stock to feed, take advantage of the bountiful supply of grass which nature has yielded, and put up hay enough to meet the emer gency that may arise from a long and severe winter, or a poor hay season next year. Remember that many were surprised last winter and com pelled to buy hay at an exorbitant prico for several months. This should not be allowed to happen again. Now apply tho old maxim, 'Make hay while the sun shines,' and next March when the bleak winds aro howling over the prairie, you will rejoice that your cattle and horses arc abundantly supplied with nutriment of life. Wahoo Inde pendent. Fmlt Growing. We took a stroll with Judge Bal lard out to his place Monday even ing, and after a somewhat protracted interview with his cherry patch, looked about at the most euteusive aud varied assortment of growing fruit that we ever saw anywhere. He has about twenty acres so com pletely overshadowed with fruit forest that it is a perfect labyrinth of fruit, both great and small. He has two acres of grapes that it will re pay any one a trip ont there to see, und we got a small stamp to wager that for beauty of appearance and quantity of fruit, no other two acres in the state will compare with them. Blair Pilot. Tal.e Care of Farm .Steele. Now are the days when the farm horse suffers most aud more thuu ever needs the watchful care of his master. See that he has a fly blaukct of some kind. It costs but little aud will be appreciated by the animal. See that his stable is airy aud a good bed is made, so that he can rest well and be ready for the coming day's work ; or still better, if you have a pasture turn him out nights, but continue to give tho reg ular amount of grain. Seo that he has plenty of good, fresh water, and as often as every two or three hours during the hot weather, the practice of allowing a work horse to go from morning un til noon, or from noon until night is simply barbarous. Provide plenty of shade for your stock that runs out in pasture. If there are no trees see that a cover of some kind is prepared to keep them from the scorching sun. Give stock tho most favorable opportunity for feeding during the cool part of the day. Coupling season for sheep will soon be here and good rams should be eecurcd. The flocks should bo watched carefully, that no disease gets among them. J?igs should have plenty of green food. Pigs that come this month will be ready for holiday pork. The pens should be kept clean ; a coat of whitewash will add much in this respect. Clean swine make healthy pork. Nebraska Farmer. Union Pacific Extension In IVc br.iKka. Tho Union Pacific surveying par ty, sent out from Omaha on Mon day, will survey a line from St. Paul, Nebraska, northwest up the Loup valley to Ord, a distance of eighty-five miles. This extension of the St. Paul branch runs through a very rich farming country. Ord is in the vicinity of old Fort Hartsuff, recently abandoned, the buildings and lumber having been bought for the Union Pacific by Land Commis sioner Burnham. The extension will probably bo built this year, aud next year it may be constructed to Fort Niobrara, sixty-five miles fur ther north. Where the line will eventually terminate has not been ascertained, but it will be seen that tho North Platlo country is getting its share of railroad construction. Omaha Republican. Railroading: in 1S3I. Col. Sumner, of Akron, O., says that in IS.1I, as he was returning from New York via Albany, at the latter place he found the first train drawn by a steam engine in Ameri ca in readiness for Schenectady. Eight men lifted the engine on the rails. Common road coaches wero used, with flango wheels. The train ran at the rato of five or six miles per hour. When a few miles out the train stopped on account of the engineer lotting the fire get too low. Multitudes of people gathered to witness the strange phenomenon. When tho train was ready to start from Albany, tho conductor cried out, "All aboard ; give us a push." There were five coaches on the track, each coach capablo of carrying fif teen persons. The contract for grading the entire distance from St. Paul to Ft. Hart suff has been let and will be finished just as rapidly as men and teams can complete it. Jim Kyner has the first twenty miles and will break ground just as soon as the surveyors get out of his way. The remainder of the contract is in the hands of men who will put a large force of experienced graders at work in a short time. This will be good news for the people up the Loup, whose most sanguine expectations of the wondrous benefits to be derived from railroad facilities, wo hope will be fully realized. It will be of im mense profit to them, and while they are getting a great deal, Grand Island, naturally, by reason of her location and excellent wholesale facilities, will come in for her share. Grand Island Times. Section 75, chapter 47, general laws of Nebraska, reads as follows : "It shall be the duty of each over seer of roads during tho month of August or September, in each year, to make provision for the prevention and spread of prairie fires in his district, by causing the grass along the line of the public roads, at least two rods in width on each side of said roads, where practicable, to be mown. Such grass shall be permit ed to lie where it is cut, and shall not be raked or gathered together, but shall, at a suitable time, when dry, be burnt. The labor to bo per formed under the provisions of this section shall bo a part of the labor to be performed by persons assessed to pay labor, or road tax, and they shall bo allowed compensation at the rates hereinafter provided for other work on public roads." Last week we published an article from the Columbus Journal in ref erence to Mr. aud Mrs. Merritt, of Norfolk. Said article we see by the Norfolk Journal was wrong in some of tho main facts. Mrs. Merritt did not attempt to drown herself be cause her husband refused to take her back east, but did so while la boring under a mental derangement. They live on a homestead near Bat tle Creek and were on their way east when the accident occurred at Norfolk. Madison Chronicle. The New York Herald advocates the substitution of arbitration for jury trial in civil cased. It says: The civil Jury of to-day is a crude anomalous relic of the past, which' has come down through tour centu ries without material change, and which never could have found a place in a modern jurisprudence had it not been foisted upon us by time and circumstance. Men drawn at random from the masses, withont any reference to tho intelligence, ex perience or calling, are made to decide intricate questions of prop erty, finance, trade, shipping, me chanics, etc., concerning which they are wholly ignorant. As their du ties are temporary they gain no experience. As they serve unwill ingly and with impatience to return to their business or home3 they arc apt to be careless and indifferent. In the number of its members the jury is absurd. Controversies in volving vast interests aro decided by a single judge. The disputes of nations aro settled by two or three arbitrators. Busiuc98 men submit their differences to one of their own number. But in a jury trial, how ever insignificant the amount of the question involved, twelve men arc deomed essential to settle the mat ter satisfactorily. Nor is this the most ridiculous feature of the sys tem. In tribunals of arbitration, courts, legislative and other bodies the graveBt questions are decided by a majority. But In the case of a jury the ancient requirement of unanimity which Hallam properly denounces as a "preposterous relic of barbarism," defeats every verdict to which each of the twelve jurors is not willing to agree. In Southern Colorado has appear ed a gray fly never seen before until tbis year. It lights upon the back of the grasshopper, bores a little hole and deposits an egg therein, then flies away to another. The grasshopper thus fixed acts slck,aud in two days dies, when a small grub comes out of its body and soon be comes a fly. Millious of grasshop pers have been thus destroyed this year. Mr. Bartelot, owner of a very large aud beautiful farm seven miles southwest from Littleton, was the first one who informed us of this, and his statement is verified by sev eral others. Denver Great West. Rev. Dra. Jewctt and Hatfield, who were appointed a committee of tho Rock Rivor conference to formu late and prosecute charges of heresy against Rev. II. W. Thomas, D. D., have performed their work. The charges are brief, and accuso the doctor of denying the inspiration of tho scriptures, denying the doctriue of atonement, and teaching a proba tion after death. Tho trial will be held in Chicago next month. Pretty prattler (after the wedding breakfast departure of tho happy pair). Child "Why do they throw things at the pretty lady in the car riage?" Yonng lady "For luck, dear." Child "And why don't sho throw them back ?" Young lady "Oh! that would be rude!" Child (promptly) "No, it wouldn't. Ma does." Pleasant for ma and pa who overhear, and know that others overhear also. A girl heard her father criticised severely across a dinner-table. The careless critic paused a moment to say: "I hope he is no relation of yours, miss?" Quick aB thought, she replied, with the utmost non chalance: "Only a connection of my mother's by marriage!" Here's a positive fact that occur red in a public school recently: A 6mall boy was asked to name some part of his own body. He thought for a moment aud then, replied: "Bowels, which are five in number, a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes w and y." Teacher: 'John, what are your boots made of 1' Boy : 'Of leather.' 'Where does the leather como from !' .From the hide of the ox.' 'What animal, therefore, supplies you with boots and gives you meat to eat?' 'My father.' Usually the greatest boasters are the smallest workers. The deep rivers pay a larger tribute to the sea than shallow brooks, and yet empty themselves with less noise. A firm faith is the best divinity ; a good life is the best philosophy ; a clear conscience is tho best law; honesty is the best policy ; and tem perance the best physic. "We're in a pickle, now," said a man in a crowd. "A regular jam," said another. "Heaven preserve us 1" murmured an old lady. The hum of a teakettle paid for is far more beautiful than an operatic air on a piano that is not. Act well at the moment, and yon have performed a good action to all eternitv.
