Bancroft ex pects thus to avoid sensational reports that do more harm to railroads than the real facts can possibly do. Supt.

"PENSIONS ron ALL," is the title under which General M M. Trumbull gives a severe lashing to the Treasury raiders, in the Octobler "Popular Sclenco|Montlily." The writer was a general in the civil war, and is anxious for the honor, as well as the due rewards, of the former soldiers, and he expresses the fervent wish that tho "pension temptation" may not "change the character or diminish the fame of the Grand Army." .

To many suffering hopelessly, the following words will como with comfort and cheer: Fulton. N. Y., Jan'y liO, 1889. "I was on cratches with rheumatism of the limbs and given up to die by prominent physicians. Suffered one and a half years. St. Jacobs Oil cured me. No return of pain since 1880.

As for the interrupted or pulsatory current, that ia.dangerous, whilo tho alternating .current is deadly at a very low pressure. These- conclusions are verified by the death record, for out of eighty-five fatalities, the particulars of which have been vbtained, not one was due to tho low tension continuous current, fifty-four to the pulsating, and twenty-three to tho alternating.—Boston Herald. Pioneer .Tress says that city has granted a franchise lor the building o£ an I electric street railway. Electricity is coming to the front and St. Paul is not , engaged In euangelistio work, with excellent success. He is a clear and for cible speaker and hews to the mark going to be behind other metropolitan cities. —Rev. F. A. Gregory, pastor of the Baptist church of this city, will exchange pulpits with Rev. J. T. Mason, ot Amboy, next Sunday. Rev. Mr. Mason was pastor of the church here for several years and will without doubt be greeted by a large congregation. —Never in the hiatory of the city has there been such a scarcity of dwellings of a good class, for rent The agents have many calls each week and manage to provide places, but there 10 a demand for a better class than ia to be had. Sterling will now continue to go forward rapidly and the building of more tenement houses will be a good investment. —The Sterling Mfg. Co. of Hock Falls offered one of their Famous Feed Mlllaatthe Nebraska State Fair for the best exhibit of corn. The party getting the prize sent his com to the factory at Rock Falls, where it now i». ;t consists of corn of many kinds, all ot nice quality, and all good seed corn. Any parties wishing to use some of tho corn for seed can obtain it by calling at ibe factory. -The Women's Relief Corps ar» preparations for » i Friday evening of thia vacant room in Harwell Hall M<»St at tUelr Hs.1, Wuite »ud l!hujBoel*l- Those wiahias to spend aq eajoyatds evening should not tail and wiU **» foil jus «»i Much o-w*H against evil. While sorry to have him leave here, we congratulate the church at Moline In securing him for pastor. —A possible rival of Indian corn haa been lately added to the food-plants produced ia this country. This new plant Is called sweet cassava, and is closely related to the rlcinua, or castor- beans, which it resembles, although it is a handsomer plant than riclnus. It bears very little seed, and it is not propagated from seed, but, from cuttings of the larger stems: and the roots -pro duce great tubers, sometimes, three or four feet in length, which seem to be a most wholesome article of food for rflftn or cattle. By.manufacture,_cas^ sava may be converted into starch, tapioca, and glucose, with scarcely any waste. In the tropics, cassava flour is used for making crackers or wafers, which are very palatable and will keep for months; and Florida housekeepers have used It for making bread puddings, custards, etc., while aa a vegetable it may be cooked in all ways that white potatoes are. Oa the southern border of the United States there are considerable areas admirably adapted to growing this remarkable plant as a staple article of home consumption; and Its manufacture into starch, Upio- ca, and glucose, may become a leading Industry in Florid*. Aa to the yield u«r acre, no satisfactory estimate haa b«eu made; it will probably vary grtatly miil«r various conditions. *V miigUi piau!, h&a b<wa kaewa to pio- aui.-i fifty jjuutwiii of tuutnra,. but ttii* i* ^•.Wtiou*.
