He says erops are splendid this year, but it will take them about all to pay up last year's debts. Much of the land, is rented for *aih root and as nothing was raised or paid last year they hare two year's rent and two year's expenses to pay this yw. The granger logisla tion of last year also tended lo cripple the state. We are glad to note that ho Is enthusiastic for Blaine and reciprocity, and republicanism generally. Varm Tor Sale.

Only recently n certain Dr. LuderlU, has stuf iod in detail the gorm-kllllng action ot ooffee Infusion. Using by no means strong infusions, ho showed that a certain harmless uilorocoocue germ dies in 10 per cent, ooffee,' volu­ tion in from three to five days. The' bacillus ot typhoid fever perished'in from one to throe days under, ooffee influence, and the cholera bacillus In from three to four hours. The germ of anthrax or splonlo fever died In from two to three hours; but the spores of young forms of tho latter germ perished In from two to four weeks only. These latter rosults speak well for tho power ot - ooffee us a gormloldo, for anthrax germs and spores are by no means easy to scotch or kill. Possibly' after these revelations coffee administered internally, may ba utilised as a remedy for germ-produced diseases^ As it U, its virtues ai a reviver and ••plek-me-up" have long been appreciated outsldo the medloal world.
