"It is very easy to see when a horse is threatened with prostration. The animal begins to breathe in quick short gasps, even when standing still. Instead oi.' perspiring profusely, his skin becomes dry. The best thing to do when these symptoms are observed; is to get the horse into a cool place and apply cold water. Turning the hose on the animal in such a condition is the best remedy I know of. POUT cold water over the horse's body and do not; hesitate about using enough. If ice is handy rub some on the animal's head. If the horse has had such a severe stroke that he has fallen, put a blanket or some straw under his head and hold him down until he is strong enough to get up and remain on his feet. At frequent intervals a horse that has fallen on account of the heat will make attempts to get up when he is too weak to stand. These attempts only weaken the animal the more. Keep his head down on the ground and continue the applications of ice and water until the temperature is reduced. Frequently the temperature of a horse laboring under sunstroke will go up to 107 degrees. The chances are that evea after a hors« has been brought to his feet again it will be a "dummy." That is. he will not be as responsive and iniel- CCLD DUST WASHING POWDER . ?«nnBylvanla Station. IfennsuJvaniaUneS I ^^^^^m^^M^r-*' T. iir i—i 1 ^^^^-^tj^^^^j* Tralnc Run by Central Time >P*il7.

His costume is that of a backwoodsman, as the artist understood it. The head is finely modeled and the face is full of character. There is no mistaking it for any other than that of the boy Lincoln, yet Caccia has so put the great character of Lincoln into it that the rugged feat-. ures are beautiful. j He is sit- ^S ent as 1)efor e- A severe case of sunstroke seems to cause softening of the Ambulance Chaaers in St. Louie.

Frequently a bull in a fit of temper kills or cripples his keeper. This is more particularly true of dairy breeds. Now I do not believe the bull is as much to blame as his owner. He has been kept in close confinement most of his life with very little exercise or sunlight and no pleasant company. His biood is in bad order as a consequence, and he is difficult to control. The beef bull is-more phlegmatic and less liable to get unruly. I think that if the treacherous bull had been allowed this A Ciuiel f OKT-ln-Hand.

The elephant artillery is a feature of the English army, and now they have a camel four-. in-hand. Almost every one nowadays has seen a camel.

The -first experiment was tried about a month ago in Calcutta, and it proved a complete success.

A few years ago, when a Unitet States Senatorial election was impend ing in Ohio, one of the leading candi dates needed another vote to make hi; election sure, and his campaign mana ger, after canvassing the situation began work upon a bucolic represeuta tive from one of the Western Reservi counties. The old man grew very Indignant »' There can be no disputing the fact that the bicycle is one of the most valuable and attractive additions to the machinery of the present day. It annihilates distance, and makes many things possible which heretofore have been impossible. Its advantages to the laboring man alone are enough to cause all people to hail its advent. On his wheel the workman may cover distance and obtain employment where formerly he would be shut out because with his vote. He fumed a great deal swore a little, and very melodramatic ally asserted that "his manhood wai not for sale at any price. Gradual!} the fact was impressed upon him tha the one necessary vote could be se cured in another quarter, and that hii obstinacy would have no effect tjpoi the Senatorial result, anyway, whili It might materially affect his pocket book. Thereupon the old fellow made ai eloquent plea in nis own behalf. H» strongly asserted that he was an bon/ est man, whose reputation was as deai to him as his life, and whose chsraC' ter always had been unspotted by con tact with the world. "You will readily understand, sir,* he added, "that having so much al stake as I do, it would be impossible for me to entertain for one mornenl any proposition you might make tc try to influence my vote in this matter. My vote is not for sale, but ] have no ill-feeling toward you foi what you have tried to do. And aj proof of that fact I'll go right ovei to your room now, and join you in a social game of. euchre, just betweea ourselves." "All right," assented the lobbyist "I'm pretty busy, but I guess I can find time enough for a single rubber witt you. How about stakes?" "Twenty-five hundred a corner." "No—two thousand." They played. The lobbyist lost. Th« man from the Western Reserve voted for the candidate who was elected Senator,—Chicago Times-Herald. In Praise of the Ox. I hope to live to see the day when the big oxen, of olden times will again adorn the farms of Kennebec. On almost every farm now you may find a pair of big Western or Canadian horses, and in a few years they will wear out and the money for another pair must" come from somewhere besides their earnings. When you sell a pair of oxen for which Kennebec was once noted you gat money enough to buy another pair and have some left to pay your taxes with. Then again the back of each of the wheelers i« ' you yoke up your oxen a.nd put them astride a cart-tongue or sled handle and go to work; while with horses you must have a full accompaniment of rigging; to go with them and then you need a harness maker and blacksmith perched a regulation camel driver seated in a saddle. The riders or drivers sit upon their respective steeds in the same way as did the post boys of old tavern days, and that is the way the wheelers look when they are in trim for a journey.

It was a chub, found in a muddy pcol, and certainly it was as hideous a thing a» one could well imagine. It was imprisoned in a sort of cage formed of the roots of an elm tree that projected under the water, and it had evidently wormed its way into thi» prison when auite small. Being unable to find its way out, it had beeo forced to grow in the shape of its cage instead of the natural form that all chubs should take. With no room to develop, the fl*h's tail had disappeared altogether, save for a little deformed stump that had wedged its way between the roota of the tree. The bark fin had also vanished, for there w '.s no room for it to grow in. The v/hcle body of the luckless chub was distrrted, and had grown into the gnarled rnd twisted form of the root cage. r - he scales were Incrusted with mu/ 1 , and arranged in layers like roof slftes. It is a puzzle to Imagine how the fish fed and liv^d during its growing years in that watery priron, and what it did when times were hard and no food came by.

Hints In Have the goods to advertise. Tell your story plainly in the newspaper that the people read, and in language they will easily understand, and among others prserve the following Advertising Points: Profitable advertising results fr#m good goods being offered well. Give your rival's advertising attention, but give your rival n* advertising. Advertising prestige is hard to win, but not hard to l»se. It is easiest sustained. The add should be so plain that it -will lie understood by a reader of little understanding. Your advertising should be complete ia itself.

What the person who steals a child wants is not the child but its clothes, and, having got them, the child turns up again safe and sound, 'but maybe a bit frightened and very hungry as a. rule. The kidnappers are generally women. A woman cm go abott with a child without attracting attention as a man would. If a child is stolen to be kept, it is, in zcost cases, sent down into the country.
