The census statement of tbe acreage and yield of tobacco for 1889 shows an increase over the last census of 52,233 acres and 19,503,440 pounds, Kentucky shows the greatest increase. There has aeen a substantial increase in North Car olina, Tennessee, Ohio, New York and Wisconsin. Education in the Argentine.

Of these schoolhouses 485 are the property of the nation or of the provinces and 1,888 private property.—Theodore Child, in Harper's.

As hostile suits are now pending for heavy penalties against the ladies to test their right to sit and vote, it would be unbecoming here to do more than wish them success in their brave fight. Their presence at the council board, their useful work on its committees, has already so justified their election that even if the law be interpreted hostilely against them there is little doubt that public opinion would compel early legislative action in favor of the right they claim. — Charles Bradlatsgu in Boston Transcript. _ A Verse of Scripture. At one of the Teachers' institutes held a few years ago in Maine, a rule was in force that whoever entered the morning session late should pause at the door and recite a passage of Scripture, a quotation from some poet, or other expression of an idea, for the edification of those present at the session. There was present at the session a. plain little old maid, who was continually saying and doing inappropriate things. It seemed to come natural to her. She was late one morning, was this "unappropriated blessing," and pausing on the threshold she electrified those within by remarking suavely, "I lova those that love me, and those that seek me early shall find me." — Lewiston Journal.

For the month ending February 28, 1890, we exported of these implements, according to the Treasury summary of exports and im ports, $134,595 worth. During the month ending February 28, 1891, according to the same authority, we exported $196,659 worth. Ordinance No. O.
