There are no flies on Jersey now. Miss Kate Horner is the coroner at Pender, Neb., and they say she is very pretty. We may now expect to hear of some of the young men of Pender dying euddenly.

Sleek rascals go about insuring farmers' lives, offering very low rates and taking applications for insurances. The application afterwards turns out to be a note. Another method is to duce the insured to take out a big en dowment policy and pay the first in •tallment of $200 or $300. That is the of the insurance. The city authorities of Cleveland have ordered the drinking fountains through which the Woman's Christian I'emperance Union has been dispensing concoction known as wild cherry phosphate removed.

The women walk the streets at night as de tectives to ferret out offenders. The local courts are clogged with suits against jointists. for seviral weeks a protracted meeting has been in progress at Kilmore Cllston county, Ind., under the directions of Mre. Mershon, and among the converts was Newton Sheets, who finally professed sanctification. Sunday, one week ago, Sheets declared that he would neither eat nor sleep till Nathan liodenberger, a friend, was converted *nd during the first few days he spent the time almost incessantly in prayer for him. Rodenberger was obdurate, •nd refused to be converted, and finally sent Sheets word that he might as Well have his grave dug. Sheets grew thinner and thinner, and Rodenberger more and more stubborn. On Sunday night Sheets abandoned his self- allotted sacrifice of food and sleep and gave It up as a bad job. Sunday night he went to sleep from sheer exhaustion, and on Monday supplied the wants the inner man. .• J. C.

Here they have no apples to compare with our Rhode Island greenings, the Baldwin, russet, and northern spy. The Germans are very fond of apples. Their physicians .-ecom mend them as a most healthful article of diet. But their best apples are by no means as good aa the worst we produce. There is no reason why each year should not see us sending millions of dollars' worth where we only send thousands.

Hut he did say that during the period of his recent iptaiii generalship he had repeatedly urged the government to carry out home rule reforms. "If I did not carry them out myself," lie declared, '•it was because the government never instructed me to do so." The peroutlon of the spccch was lofty and pathetic appeal to the cabinet nnd the nation to make Whatever concessions were necessary to briug about peace. "Let us eiid a war," he exclaimed, in tones of warning and indignation, "which costs 120,000 lives and $100,000,000 annually." it was tiie speech of a patriot and of Spain's inost far-seeing statesman, as well as ablest and most huiuano soldier. 15ut it did not fall with a pleasant sound upon the ears of ministerialists or inilitai-y politicians of any school. They were better satisfied with the energetic retort of Canovas who reiterated, amid the applause Of the chamber and the galleries, that, while a complete scheme of reforms was read}-, not :t single concession would be made until the insurrection had been quelled.

Ail American Newspaper Mail in Cuba to Fight a Retired Spanish Oflicer. HAVANA, July 9.—Hradley Johnson, a newspaper correspondent here, has been challanged to fight, a duel by a retired Spanish military oflicer who was offended by remarks in General Johnson's published correspondence about the Spanish army. The challenger finds himself in a somewhat rediculous position as the oflieers in active service refuse to recognize him as their champion. General Johnson, who is an exofficer of the confederate army, lias f.een much of war, and is ill no wise troubled over the vaporings of the selfconstructed champion of the honor of Spanish officers. He says if his statements are such as to render necessary a meeting on the field of honor he is perfectly willing to fight when the proper person to meet him is decided upon. News is received that unknown parties have burned the Santa l?ar bara estate near ISaro, province of Matanzas. The estate is owned by Senor Manuel Coronado, editor of La Discussion.

Can Guido Kalloonn in tin* Air. MONTKVIDEO, July 0.—A Spanish resident, an electrician, declareshe has discovered the means whereby he can guide balloon? any direction in the air. The inventor has been asked by the Spanish government to visit Madrid that liis invention, if found to be practicable, may be applied to use in Cuba. Potatoes baked in their skins should have a piece cut ofl" their ends to allow tlie steam to escape. This assures their coming out dry and mealy. Recent Austrian observations in the Mediterranean sea prove that the eepest spot in that body of water is ,IOi fathoms, or nearly three miles. Queen Victoria is no longer able to walk out to see her old friends, the ottagers. As a matter of fact, she an not take any walking exercise, and can only cross the room with the ssista nee of her stick and an ittendant.
