To save your apple trees from rabbits, put tar paper around the trunk of the tree next to the ground. SENECA NEWS. Special Reporter. SENECA, Feb. 16.—I notice in your issue of last week that someone called the co-operative creameries of the county a "creamery craze." Well if it is a craze, Seneca has got it and got it bad. They are all sticking to it like brick dust to bar soap. The lumber is all hauled, stone all on the spot and about 60 tons of ice cut and piled up. Now if this business is only a craze you would think that getting out that ice would have cooled them off a little but it didn't. We suppose if some one had come from a distance, with, headquarters at town, and put in all these different creameries, it would be called a business enterprise. But when a few old fogy farmers go in to hire a man to make their butter by machinery, and swear that their wives are going to town as often as twice next summer and have a new sunbonnet too, of course it's a craze; it can't last long. The Alliance of Seneca is still alive. They have been taking a subscription for Dakota sufferers. The next Question to be discussed at HANCBOFT.

The service - was. . about half aver when they were annoyed by a continued tittering and. scuffling back of them, and looking around they saw several girls standing upon the seats, while jvntimber more were moving uneasily^ about as if trying to -avoid some danger. Just then the word "rats," uttered in a: stage whisper, partially solved the trouble, and the man turned toward , his wife. His wife is mortally afraid of rats and mice, and the mention of. the word "rats" set her <to thinking. Presently the people in the gallery began to leave, but the scuffling continued until the lady whispered to her hnsband that they, too, had'i better go. So they arose and left, and the lady, breathed freer when she reached the street.

By dropping a cent in the slot one can get his weight, his, age, a piece of chewing gum, a bit of caady or a shock that will energize his nervous system,. Why not get from a similar machine a *good business education,' or an 'interpretation' of Browning, or a, new language, or a knowledge oi English literature? But even this would be crude. "We have hopes of something from electricity. There ought to be somewhere a reservoir of knowledge, connecting by wires with every house, and a professional switch tender, who, upon the pressure of a button in any house, conld turn on the intellectual stream desired.

FALL IN LINE. To the Bancroft Correspondent: Tbe I.O. G. T. lodge of this place is prospering nicely under tlie management of J. B. Streater. When our lodge first started iu February, 1890, it was almost impossible to call together from time to time members enough to form Mr. W. l?'s analysis of my sentence needs no comment from me, the sentence being compared to Jerusalem's stony hills adds a value that I had too much modesty to presume for it. Transposition is an old dodge to evade any knotty problem, aud it is a sure sign of sore pressure. The part of "God never made his work for man to mend" that needs correction from Mr. W. B's analysis and the prepositional phrase for man to mend; the object of the preposition /OTIS wan to mend, not man in the diagram I place man upon a support above the base line high enough to allow to mend, (its modifier) to being also above the baseline of the phrase.

An Irish priest at Aminergan told the following story of his bishop: His lordship and a chaplain came to see the Passion play. They would fain have had a room each, but this was not possible. They knelt down separately to say their prayers by their little cots, and presently it crossed the mind of the chaplain that it would not be well to make his orisons shorter than the bishop's, and he glanced over his shoulder to see if his lordship was about to make an end. The bishop, presumably anxious not to scandalize his chaplain by the shortness of his prayers, also glanced over his shoulder and waited. The process waa repeated several timoB. Both supplicants were very "red, and in time both fell asleep. They were found in the morning on their knees still and sleeping.—Pall Mall Gazette. Quite a Traveler for a Turtle. W. E. Hellenbrand, of Oldtown, came into possession of a turtle lately at Pushaw, which bore upon it the evidence of having reached years of discretion and of having been—for a turtle— quite a traveler. It was marked "J. W. Sewall, 1871," and Mr. Sewall remembers that when camping in his boyhood on Pushaw lake he found the turtle near the outlet and cut his name upon its shell. The animal was found a short time ago in the "Thorofare," near Orson island, some sixteen miles from ita former place of capture, showing that it had traveled on the average about a mile each year. Mr. Hellenbrand's son Walter marked it and released it for further adventure.—Bangor (Me.) Commercial. W. L.

It produced 30,000,000 bushels of wheat besides other cereals in 1890. Farms can be had on the crop plan, or long time 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, church, 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 and promising regions in America not yet fully occupied. In the tush to the far •west, however, tbia rich valley has been overlooked. It has room for a million more people. Write to F. J. WHITNEY, for particulars. Publication
