The Colonel puts the price of the pups at $84 apiece, but says that he vyill make half rates for editors and ministers.—Courier. The people of this state will do well to quit raising corn and go into the pup business. It would be much more profitable. : *. 40t- 4 ~—~ OBITUARY. Died, on Jan. Iflth, 1891, Mrs. Rachel II.

Every body at the Normal is as pleasant as our January weather, as cordial as the rays of the sun, as busy as a honey bee and as lively as a full grown cricket. A great many students attended the social held at the resilience of L. II. Smith last Friday evening. The students collectively prove to be a numerous element wherever they appear. The. students have been divided impartially by the faculty into two so- ciatiestodo literary work. Mr. Weaver was elected Pres. in one and Mr. Tellier the other. The sessions will be held weekly. Miss Carey, Co. Supt. of schools, was a caller at the Normal, on Monday. Several students are preparing to attend college in different parts of our state. The value of a preparatory school in our midst is obvious. ; ; '_ ., Harking ef Dogg. la Wiping of ttte native dogs of Central America Frederick Boyle brings forward A theory as to how dogft form the habit of barking. He was discussing with an old resident off the country some traits of the "coyote," as the native wolf is called, but which more nearly resembles the dog. DogH will never go wild so long as they can find a master to serve, and more especially trained dogs. The coyote never barks, and only gallops wheu pursued. In regard to the first of these points, says Mr. Byain, a remark Triads by un old Indian struck me. "Why won't these 1 coyotes bark like other dogs?" I asked Mm, pointing to one I was trying to reclaim, "and why do they only howl and the pups grunt?" His answer was, "He won't learn." "Not learn?" said L "What do yon meanV" "No," ho replied, "not learii, for if he were of an honest breed he would bark, to try and imitate his master, or at all events the other dogs, but all barking proceeds from dogs imitating their master's shout. The master shouts to frighten away cattle from his maize field—the dog barks directly; the master shouts to drive iu cattle to the corral, and the dog barks also. Iu fact, the dog imitates bis muster wheu he barks; he tries to speak, but cannot" I give this curious observation us the only attempt I over heard to account for the barking of our tairie dogs. No wild breeds make any noiso except howling and snarling, nor under tho best circumstances will they learn to bark until tho third or fourth generation, n length of trial which Mr. By am does not appear to have given tho coyote.

Tho second day in camp two watches disappeared, and each member of the party began to look upon the others with silent suspicion. Finally, as the thefts were repeated, a meeting was called, and every man pleaded not guilty. No one tip to that time suspected the honest French Canadian lad we had engaged aa a servant. He "was questioned and aliso entered a prompt and emphatic denial. We all believed his protestations of innocence except the man with the box. " -Gentlemen,' said he, -somebody iu the party took those watches, and I propose to find out who. I have here a thief detector,' pulling out an electric battery aud winking at the crowd. 'It'there is a thief among us this will point him out.' Every man took his tttrn at the battery. Tho boy watched the performance in wonder. He had never seen such u queer arrangement before, but as everybody who touched the coils escaped without harm he stepped bravely to the front wheu it came to his turn and tcok hold. A sudden change came over Ir.iu. The owner of the battery had turned on its i'ull force, and the victim gave a yell of pain and horror, and fell to the ground screaming:.'Haveme! save me! I took 'em, but I'll never do it again!'"—Jewelers' Weekly. ,,,-,„ for this Department are earue.sti.v solicited from thn teachers.

A sketch of Talleyrand by Minister Whitelaw Reid prefaces this instalment. The opening pages tell of Talleyrand's neglected childhood, and his entry into Ptirsian society. They also give his views of La Fayette, and the effect of the American on the French Revolution; some account, of the begin nings of the latter; a very contemptuous opinion of the Duke of Orleans: a sketch of the author's slay in England and the United States, and a highly interesting conversation between himself anil'Alex- ander Hamilton on Free Trade and 1 Protection.

Tho poorer classes have homes thi.v would hardly be considered fit for cows in America, and in fact the cow lives with the family. The floors are below the level of the roadway, and there are little windows about the size of portholes. Most of the houses are of one story, and it is not uncommon to build n house against the side of a hill, so that there will be no back wall. Stepping down into tho house you find the cow stable on one side and on the other the kitchen and the private apartments of the family. Each room has a stone fireplace, and all tho cooking is done with cow dung mixed with straw. There are no tables and few chairs, and it is a curious thing that a large part of the heat of the room comes from, the animal heat produced by the cattle in the stable which adjoins the kitchen. The houses of the wealthy and middle class of Armenians are more comfortable, and in the big Turkish cities you will find Armenians occupying palaces. In the country, however, they have few of the comforts of Christendom, and the chief furniture consists of a divan running around three sides of the room covered with Persian rugs and resting on a, carpet of gray felt.— .Prank G. Carpenter in National Tribune. How to Water a Hurse. Feed the horse regularly, giving him an even quantity. Do not water him on top of his dinner till he is full aa a barrel and then drive him off at a smart gait while his insides are churned into a malt house pressure, ready by effervescence to burst. Give a horse sparingly of water on "the road. Many ladies seem to think it "fun to see him drink" at a wayside trough till he is ready to drop. Be careful of the wayside "gift of humanity," the stone trough. If the horse has been a long time on the road, it is land to allow him to dip hia lips in the cooling water andl swallow two or three mouthfuls, but no wore, unless you wish to "founder" him, that is, make him unsound in his forelegs for life. You may even kill him, if the water comes from a very cold spring. Do the watering mostly at homo is my rule. — New York Weekly. A. Queer Flud.

It produced 30,000,000 bushels of wheat besides other cereals in 1890. Farms can be had on the crop plan, or long lime cash payments. It is not an uncommon thing to pay for a farm from the proceeds of one crop. It has all of the advantages of an old country in the shape of school, churcb, market, postal and railway facilities* and all the chances of a new country in the way of cheap lands, rich soil, and increase in values. It is one of the most fertile aud promising regions in America not yet fully occupied. In the rush to the far west, however, this rich valley has been overlooked. It has room for a million more people. Write to F. I. WSITNSY, Sfe Paul, .v-
