THE ORIGIN OF PHRASES, "THERE In no love lost between them" occurs in the old ballad of "The Babes in the Wood" and in a tale of the days of Shakespeare entitled "Montchesncy." "BETTEII late than never" was used over three hundred years ago by Thomas Tucker in his "Five Hundred Points ov Good Husbandry." Later on Bunyan used it in his "Pilgrim's Progress." "TirriN-o tho wink," generally regarded as a vulgar phrase, is to be found in a grave historical romance. It occurs in "Valerius, a Roman Story," by John Gibson Lockhart, Sir Walter Scott's son-in-law. "HAUMNO over the coals" dates six or seven centuries back, when feudal barons often used harsh methods of exacting gold frorn the rich Jews by suspending their victims above slow fires until they paid ransom or died. NOT a few of tho phrases in use at this day originated with Lyly and are found in his "Euphues," published in 1580. Among them are: "Caught napping," "brown study," "catching birds by putting salt on their tails," etc, THE term "blue stocking" was originally used in Venice about the year HOO to design ate literary classes by colors. Thc^ application of the term to women originated with Miss Hannah More's description of the "Blue Stocking Grub" in her "15as Bleu." "I ACKNowr.KDGE the corn" originated with a slave in the South. He was charged with stealing corn. Having a sack with him, he was .also charged with stealing that. His reply was: "No, sir;^ I 'knowledge de corn, but I ain't gwine to 'knowledge to de sack." "DISOWNING the miller" originated from the following fact: If the millstream below the mill is dammed or stopped the water is ponded back and the mill becomes "tailed." There is too much water, the mill not work and the miller is said to be "drowned ont."

Speonk is the greatest duck-raising center on Long Island, if not in the country; the entire shipment will probably have exceeded 40,000 for the season just closed. These ducks are raised for the market, and the Pekin variety seems to be the favorite. The Muscovy is raised, but they do not grow so large or so rapidly, though they are, it is said, a more hardy breed, and this is an important matter, since a great many ducks die when young from cholera, or are chilled by the cold weather. The price generally returned from the New York market is from 75 cents to $1 for each duck. On this basis Speonk has received nearly $40,000 this year from this business alone. The raisers begin to set their eggs hi incubators or under hens about the middle of January, and the first ducks are ready for the New York market about the last of April, and weigh from three to five pounds. They are picked before shipment, and the feathers are scalded and sold at the close of the season, and it is expected that the price of the feathers will pay for the cost of picking 1 . Since the charge for picking is from four to five cents, it is easj' to &eo how much a duck's clothes are worth. The picking is quite an industry, and many of the girls made from S100 to §200 last summer this way.—Brooklyn Times, A Mystery Explained. t Doctor—What you need is more exercise. What business do you follow? Patient—I am a brick-layer. '•Humph! I should think you would get all the exercise you required, but your symptoms indicate that you are of a sedentary disposition."

A number of these were Canadians who had become discouraged by a succession of poor crops and decided to return to their own country. Settlers from Dakota drive across the international boundary into tho Canadian Northwest, all along the frontier, being anxious to shore in the prosperity of what appears to be a marvelously productive country. 1 Quite a number of families will move from Ontario to Grenfell, and other points in Eastern Assiniboia early in the spring. Since September last twenty-seven families have left Michigan and secured new homes in Manitoba and the Canadian Northwest. A short time ago a caravan of five wagons bearing the families and household effects of a number of French settlers passed through Morden, Manitoba, on their way to new homes near Carman, Manitoba. These settlers had driven all the way frorn Kansas. Mr. P. Burnett, of Craiglca, Manitoba, lately sold 300 acres of land to two Canadians who eight years ago emigrated to Dakota, but who have now decided to locate in Manitoba, being satisfied that the Canadian country offers the best chances. Every indication points to an immensely increased settlement in the Canadian Northwest next season. The manifold advantages of the country are now better understood and practical farmers and others anxious to better their conditions in life are turning to the Canadian Northwest. PROFANE history has pages added to it at tho putting up of every stove.—Hutchinson News. _ REAI> carefully what is said in next week's issue ot this paper by J. C.

By druggists. 25c. is issue of §1,000 Treasury notes called the edition de luxe. Here is something from Mr. Frank A. Hale, proprietor of the De Witt House, Lewistpn, and the Tontine Hotel, Brunswick, Me. Hotel men meet the world as it comes and goes, and are not slow in sizing people and things up for what they are worth. He says that he has lost a father and several brothers and sisters from Pulmonary Consumption, and is himself frequently troubled with colds, and he Hereditary often coughs enough to make him sick at Consumption^stomach. Whenever he has taken a cold of this kind he uses Boschee's German Syrup, and it cures him every time. Here is a man who knows the full danger of lung troubles, and would therefore be most particular as to the medicine he used. What is his opinion ? Listen! "I use nothing but Boschee's German Syrup, and have advised, I presume, more than a hundred different persons to take it. They agree with me that it is the best cough syrup in the market." © xi' Else Will Do It. We have volumes of evidence to prove that S. S. S. is the only permanent cure for contagious Blood Taint. I suffered for five years with the worst form of blood poison, during which time I was attended by the best physicians I could find, and tried numbers of proprietary medicines without any beneflcial results. I continued to grow worse all this time, until my whole system was destroyed by the viledis- tongue and s.s.s Is as near infallible as it is possible for a medicine to be In the cure of Blood poison. I then commenced taking Swift's Specific (8.8. S.), and in a few months I was entirely oured,and to this great medioine do I attribute my recovery.
