Emile Grainer, the French millionaire, Is credited with having done more than any other one man toward the development of the state of Wyoming. In the eight years he has lived there he has spent $4.00,000 in the work. His first winter's experience made him a rheumatic cripple for life. It is said that a gold brick swindle was perpetrated recently on a resident of Hampton Comers, Washington county, N. Y. The man loaned $6,000 on the brick, which was represented to be worth .?10,000. It was assayed by a member of the , pang, who the* victim supposed was the Vermont, state assayer.

Avaunt, then, thou goblin; away from my path I I'm weary of drinking thy vials of wrath: Thy mists have extinguished the lights of , my soul, And my spirit revolts from thy further control. —JTOIA. L. DUMOHX. Conquering Knnr^y. For the benefit of those without ade- termination to succeed in life, let me quote from the letters of Longfellow written while in college to his parents: ^'Whatever I study, I ought to be engaged in with all my soul, for I will be eminently something. I am afraid you begin to think me rather chimerical in many of my ideas and that I am ambitious of becoming a rara avis in terrl But you must acknowledge the usefulness of aiming, high at something which! it is impossible, to overshoot, perhaps to reach." Wh-itever is undertaken in life should engage all the energies with a determination to eminently succeed. 'This spirit would kindle a desire to emulate the greatness of the noble characters that have adorned 'the' world. It is the purpose oi this organization; 'to bring rural homes into closer fellowship with these illustrious lives and teach "them j,tiie sequel of true success. I can recall no language more inspiring, or that more forcibly presents the road to success, a few stanzas'from "The Ladder of St. Augustine," by Longfellow: "We have not wings, we can not soar; But we have'f eet tp scale and climb By slow degrees, by more and more, The cloudy summits of our time. The mighty pyramids of stone That wedge-like cleave the desert airs, When nearer seen and better known, . Are but gig antic nights of stairs. "The distant mountains, that up'fear Their solid bastions to the skies, Are crossed by pathways, that appear As we to higher levels rise. "The bights by, great men reached and kept Were not attained by sudden flight, But they, while their companions slept, Were toiling .upward in the.night," —Farmers' Review. soaae kiad oi j&resertes &to& it with the piece sliced off.

These strips of orange and lemon peel must be in. neat little pieces—not ahreda, but not Jong lengths. Remove all the pips and skin from the oranges, and with a knife cut them in rounds on a plate. Do not lose one drop of the juice. Weigh the peel and fruit together, and press out the juice and pulp of the lemons; to each pound of fruit allow three pints of boiling water, set ofl the fire to boil till the skin can be easily pierced with a fork, then put in the sugar, two pounds to each pound oi fruit. Stir constantly until the marmalade is finished. It will possibly take half an hour after the sugar is dissolved, but must be kept boiling until it jellies. Drop a little from the spoon on a quite cold plate; when it can be lifted up from the plate with the finger, take it from the fire at once, and pour into dry pots, cover 4 while hwt and store in a cool dry place. —Farm and Home. 1KB WILL MfllL A flne J'an<?l Picture, ent>ttea "MEDITATION " to e?oUange for AO knvife Wop cut from Lion Cgffee nu<l u a-coat stftrnp to pontage, Write for Use of our other BUB premiums, lm>iud. )n# (xioks, a kaife, game, eto „ WOQkSON SfHCfi CO., W BiH-on ftt,, (por.Bnq, OHIO, Patents, Trade-Marks, ffttentabiuty ot « | WftoFHow( mwmw, ISuergy of Germs. . ' It is rather singular that, whereas the drying of material laden with bacteria usually acts as a disinfectant, it does not seem to do so to any great extent with consumption germs. Commenting upon the fact; Popular Science News say K The probable explanation of this lies in. the fact that the bacillus tuberculosis Koch is spore bearing. These spores to'w'as seeds. To dry up a fie!4 of wheat would completely kill the crop, but to dry the ripened grain preserves it. Until very lately the spirillum of Asiatic oholrea was considered exceedingly susceptible to desiccation. All the early reports asserted that when once dried they became powerless for ill. A French physician called Doyon has lately been experimenting- in this di.! rection, He finds that, whereas a pure I culture of cholera germs dried in ordinary air is completely sterilized, one dried in an exsiccator, where the air is, kept perfectly dry witlx sulphuric acid, retains H virulence toy a lonjy ti»e, Jt even resists the bacteria ae> dal influence of such, substances as sulphuric acid ft nd oil of mustay4 when. 90 dried, Cholera gepjne, eon. traryto tbe pwWic idea tbein, are among fl) Of $»y yet discovered, Ord.ln»vy egav will kill ey,ery gewn jn' & ew in about is jninutee, and w§ter,^re to Its own volume of rgd oy wine, will reader tkepj bavwlegs, r^asQj) these substances are not » Sifle agaJBSt their action in the sy b !?9^»8e we ppssesg np iwa»6 of A BKKF vs. POJIK DIET.—In summer or warm climates no doubt beef is a more desirable diet than pork, and in recent times it is cheaper. It is not, however, so well understopd that the beef has much greater value tp tbpse whp need muscular strength. A'n illustration of this kind is given in the Live Stock Journal. A contractor in a frontier settlement had forty men in his employ. He fed them for sixty days on a diet containing beef and then had them carry a piece of timber some distance. He then provided pork for the tables instead of beef for the same period and without intimating his Object, desired the same men again to remove the timber. After repeated efforts it was found that ' the men could not even lift the piece of timber. The chief difficulty in the way of its use by farmers is that beef is not so easily provided for ^summer use, while pork may be kept indefinitely if properly cured.—Ex. • • LITTLK HoKNs.—Take two pints and a half of floxir, three eggs, one gill of cream, one ounce of yeast dissolved in milk, a quarter of a pound of butter and a pinch, of salt. Mix and .beat vigorously with a large spoon. Set to rise. Then transfer the dough to a baking-board, dust over with flomv and roll out to a thin • sheet. Cut it into squares as big aa the palm of your hand by means of ,a cake .wheel. Roll up the squares cross-cornered, bend them so as to form a half-moon, set them to rise a second time, and then bake them light brown on a buttered sheet iron baking-pan. You may also fillthe horns with the following mixture: -Blanch and pound to a paste two ounces of almonds, to which add two-ounces of well washed currants, one ounce and a half of sugar, half a teaspoonful af cinnamon, and the juice of half a lemon. Spread the mixture over the squares of dough be- j fore rolling them up.—Ex, • SUBSTANCE UN THE BAB-OB NOSE.— Children^very often put such things as peas, beads or cherry stones into their noses or ears, : If they have only just put the substance inside the nose or ear, it is easy to remove it, but should it be pushed tightly in there is always a good deal of difficulty in getting it out, and it is very unwise to attempt it, as specially shaped instruments may be necessary, and even, chloroform may have to be .administered. Every unsuccessful attempt pushes the (substance farther in and increases the risk and 'trouble in finally removing it. 'When anything gets into the ear turn the head on one side, with that ear undermost, and if a few gentle taps on the head do not dislodge the body dp not make any further efforts, but take the child to a dpctor, _ Illinois has 1.130 convicts, eighty- six por cent of whom are tinde^ forty years of agrc.

A Hanoverian botanist, named Wehmer, j s reported to have discovered a microbe in the atmosphere, pure cultures; of which will convert sugar into an acid identical with that of the lemon.

The ascent up this historic old mountain is made by an incline railway. Open observation cars are iised, and the trip to Lookout point, 2,100 feet above sea made-in six minutes. Just at the foot of this incline the laboratory of the Chattanooga Medicine Co. is located. The roof of this buildine shows a sign 175 feet long and forty feet wide that reads "Mo- Elree's Wine of Cardui for Women. 1 ' Some of the letters are twenty feet long and can be read from the cars •while riding all the way up the mountain.
