Ho has taken $125 In prixes already and if ho takes first place in Chicago, tho lowu state fair will add IfJiOO to tho $1,000 prize offered there. A young couple lately married settled tho question of marriage presents In tho following 'novol intmnor: Each invitation requested tho recipient to come prepared to donate iio cents to tho new family about to start in life. Tho guests promptly responded, and instead of an array of gaudy prosontH thoy repaired to tho bridal chamber and counted out tho proceeds, 'which strongly resembled a Sunday school collection, and which netted them a neat sum on which to begin housekeeping. A fisherman in Wall lake recently heavily baited tho hooks on his trout lino and left the line lying by the waters odgo until ho could got a stono to tio on tho end of it. There woro six big hooks, and when ho returned there woro just six hogs on tho scone, onch trying to run In a different direction. They woro loft to their futo, and au enraged farmer is now looking for tho follow who goos fishing for pigs. Horo IB tho latest corn story from Wright county: A tnrmer living in tho vicinity of Ronwick had tho good fortune to have a building containing corn In tho path of a cyclone that visited that locality last summer. Tho cyclone picked up tho building and whirled It around with such rapidity that the corn was all shelled, tho cobs passing out through a hole hi tho side, so that after tho storm ho had several hundred bushels of shelled corn in the building and tho cobs wore pilod up la tho barn yard.

It shows what fifty acres can bo made to produce. Mr,, Hallock is Mrs. B. P. Rood's uncle and every detail of this report is correct: While it is doubtless true, as a rule that "farming don't pay," yet Mr. H»l look's experience would seem to ipsXifute that men of judgment and 'tact can make it pay.
