It is telegraphed all the way from • Athens that tho PoIiiiKcnosia is of opinion that peace between Chakir Pasha and the Cretan commission is impossible. Dear, dear! Bow sad! A popular novelist declares in his latest work that every woman who has reached middle life hates every woman •who Is young and pretty, ami cherishes a malice-working spite at her. What do ladles think of this? I The International Hygienic conference at Paris adopted a unanimous resolution that kitchen refuse should never bo kept in the house over night.. This regulation is at present enforced in Paris. The refuse is removed every twenty-four hours, and is kept previous to removal in covered metallic vessels. In the hundred years that have elapsed tinder our present organization of government southern men have been speakers of the national house of representatives fifty-one years and northern men forty- nine years. Kentucky has been most liberally represented, her sons having been speaker for twenty-two annual sessions. Only fourteen states have ever had speakers, and not one of these lies beyond the Mississippi. More Advice to Women. CoU Elliot F. Shepard, of The New York Mail and Express, who hurls daily editorial scripture quotations at a sinful •world, pauses a moment to fling Out lome profound philosophy on the woman question. Says tha,colonel: "To tee a woman run is to look at a goose waddling." Then he advises the fair and fragile eex to learn to throw a stone, to paddle a canoe, to climb, to run. to jump, swim, fence and box, and to assume the pose of an archer just when the arrow is loosed. He concludes vigorously, does the gallant colonel: All these exercises icrato the blood and make a living woman, not a creature In petticoats, with musll In h" r Rknll wh**r« nh<* rthmild hayejjrains^ Woman, take yourself out of doors, and stnml ' with your weight rrsthiK on the balls of the feet. not on the hecla.

Now these fanners livo on next to nothimr, so wo can imagine that tho dogs ilo not come in fnr much f,-rub of anv strengthening nature. I believe their food consists of buttermilk and potato paring all boiled up together, nnd often not. They fi.-cd their dops like store pips and it is no wonder tho poor animal's loins an-thin and their rib bones are very prominent. Still they toil on, willing creatures to a degree. It is a wonder to lire how their leps.. stand tho work so well. All are Bound, or perlmps I had better write comparatively sound. Their bone is great for their bodies, nnd tho feet nei-m to stand tho strain well. These, dogs really take tho place of asses in Belgium, where few of tho latter arc seen. A good'working dog fetches $3."> or 940. and considering the amount of work ho gets through he is not a dear dog at that Burn. I saw several on sale in the Brussels market on Sunday morning last. - The working dog is generally of a sturdy build. If an American or Englishman were asked how tho dogs were bred, hia reply would l)e: "Probably between a mastiff and a smooth sheep ilog;" and as there seems to be no dis tinct breed of these dogs, tho foregoing might be generally accepted as a definition of the appearance of the breed. All bakers use dogs for their carts. There are, however, no shafts to these con cerns, but tho dog works underneath. There is n crossbar placed just under the handles of tho cart and by means of a bent axle tree the dog can work under tho cart .and between tho wheels. It will bo seen he is closer to his work than the dogs in the usual fashion to bo seen in milk and vegetable carts. The attendant simply steers the cart with the handles, excepting whero tho hill is steep, and then le boulanjjcr lends but little help to tho panting dog. Therefore, on the whole, I do not think the working dogs in Belgium are treated with the amount of kindness, good treatment and nourishing food they thoroughly deserve. I am not one of those who are of an opinion a dog should not work. I believe they prefer ordinary. labor to being chained up in a dirty, stinking yard, with but little but a pail of stale water before them. -Let-tho Belgians feed their dogs better, put smaller loads after" them" and- have—water—trough" placed at regular intervals al>out th» sti eets. and there will not bo much to grumble at; and I should think the St Ilubert society—that is tho kennel club of Belgium—could do a lot to umn;ifti> things a little better on tho side of the dogs.—Turf, Field and Farm.

It is as good as settled that we are to have a World's fair in America in 1803. But all well wishers of our fair fame must hope that no such robbery and extortion will disgrace us aa has characterized Paria this summer. A highway robber has not less conscience, it seems, than a French hotel keeper or hackman. Tha skinning process has gone on in Paris at such a pace that at last tho government appointed officials to make the rounds of the eating houses and arrest the worst of the thieves. It is Americans, always Americans, who suffer most from tho extortions. All over Europe the American is considered the lawful prey of those who make their living off the public. It is said that Americans who live in good stylo at the Paris hotels during the exposition must pay $15 to |20 a day for simple food and lodgings. In tho name of decency let tho authorities BOO to it that we have none of this sort of thing at our exposition. Profit enough can bo made from the _. throng of -visitor)* ut fair rates. Hamilton and Dayton railway. The Farmers' Outlook. At tho Grangers' convention State Lecturer Brovvn, of Pennsylvania, said that the affairs of the farmers had been going from bad to worse for twenty yearn. Prices for their products have declined steadily. Farming, which in this country ought to pay well, had'become one of the most precarious of occupations. At present agriculture pays less wages and less profit on tho money invested than any other vocation. The lecturer might also have rueu- tioned that the prico of farming lands in many of the older sections had steadily gone down. In sorno parts of thia country comparatively good improved lands have sunk in prico till they approximate- the original government price, $1.25 an acre. Another fact ia equally plain: Although, according to Lecturer Brown, tha prices of farming commodities have steadily declined, yet the consumer of those commodities K e ' 9 little or no benefit; from the lowered prices. There ia a problem worth profound study here. — Lecturer Brown bkunea the trusts and monopolies largely for tho bad situation of tho farmers. Ho says: "We are the victims of atrocious discrimination by the great corporations which control our transportation, our telegraphic, telephonic and express business." Well, why do not the farmers form a fcmflt, too? They are now organized into the Granger, society. It has been suggested that, instead of going to the commission merchant, the dreadful "middleman" of the agriculturist, and asking him meekly what he will give for wheat this year, the farmers all over tho country unite, present a solid front to their eoemiea, whether the r&i broad or tho middleman, and gay: "Here is our wheat. You can hate it at such a price or it lica in our borna." The farmer would have one advantage, at least, in ansch a e&aa. Ha would have uoiuething to eat. Tho mat would not.

But the circumstantial evidence of Mr. J. Rate, in a letter to last week's Ilecord, is conclusive. Some sixty years ago Mr. Rate waa acquainted with two brothers of the name of Douglas, book sellers, and predecessors of tho present linn of Burns & Oatoa. "Of tho two brothers, tlie younger was a follower of Irving. Ilo died of consumption, but was fully convinced, almost till the very hour of his decease, that he should live to see (lie Lord's personal advent. After his death Mr. Irving and some of his prophets caiuo to the house mid attempted to raise him from tho dead. This was told me at the time by the elder brother, lie said to me that ho felt deeply pained at the conduct of Mr. Irving and his friends; for they laid to his charge tlie failure of their attempt to raise his~brother from the dead.

"I propose haviiu; one examination in tho forenoon, and one in tho afternoon, every day," said the principal. "That does, very well in fair weather," answered one of the teachers, "but on a cloudy day 1 object to an examination in the afternoon." "So do I," added another. "Tho children can't see to write without an effort, and they get tired and nervous." "Very well, then," said the principal, "in case of a cloudy afternoon, have that examination the day before!"— Youth's Companion.

Holinshed, the famous and amusing chronicler of the Sixteenth century, comments severely upon the manners of the English of his day. Ho tells us that "in number of dishes and changes of meat the nobility of England (whoso cooks are for the most part Frenchmen and foreigners) do most exceed; till there ia no day in manner that passeth over their heads wherein they have not only beef, mutton, veal, lamb, kid, pork, cony, capon, pig, or so many of them as the season yieldeth, but also some portion of the red and fallow deer, besides variety of fish and wild fowl, and thereto sundry other delicates wherein the sweet hand of the sea faring Portingale is not wanting, so that for a man to dino with,one of them and to taste of every dinh that standeth before him, is rather to yield unto a conspiracy with a great deal of meat for the speedy suppression of natural health than the use of a necessary meal to satisfy himself with a competent repast to sustain his body withal." Much tho same fashion is kept up to this day, aud publio banquets and the sumptuous tables of tho opulent abound in all that can charm the eye and tempt the palate, and, let me add, lay tho foundation of long aud •uvere illness.
