'•< How many farmers and others, too, whose places are destitute of fruit and, , shade trees. Again, how many rented places are devoid of trees of all kinds. Has the land-owner 6ver stopped to consider that a small orchard, a few .yard trees around every tenement house will greatly enhance the value, attract and hold a better class of tenants, make life more enjoyable and that too at practically no cost? We tell you there is a great deal of selfishness whea we look abroad and see how stingy and selfish many are with their ' tenants, and oftentimes perchance some Jgood farmer rents his farm and moves away and is so selfish as to reserve all, yes, all the fruit produced, denying even 'this to his tenant. Land-owners owo > their tenants and the public generally,a duty by planting at least a moderate ., .quantity of trees. This is a wise public policy.—Ornamental Tree Growing. ThU Calf's Tall Is In Front. Ay Scarboro (Me.) man has a cow which. recently brought an offspring into the world. The calf Is said to be all righ't*except as to the tail, and the tail is all right, only it is misplaced, being on the wrong end of the beast. It is said to grow from between the eyes. In fact, the animal looks more like u baby elephant than a cow. It was found that the calf was likely to' starve to death from its inability to suck and wag its tail at the same time, so it was brought up by hand.

Chief 6f Police ih Budapest, Hungary, is beyond dobbl: tO*day the happiest of all police chiefs in the world, lie has succeeded in recovering a quarter of a million florins for the ftoyal Hungarian. Post Office authorities, on whom a bold robbery was committed twelve years 'ago. Dr. Selley receives every day baskets full of letters of congratulation from almost every police chief (h Europe. ( Dr. Selley is sure to recive ten times as many letters from all over the world. The criminals are now In the clutches of the law, but they cannot bo convicted. On January 6, 1884, the mail was fixed up at three o'clock in the afternoon, to be ready for thg evening train to Vienna. On that memorable day the mail contained three fire proof iron, cases with money. One contained 60,000 florins, the second 120,000 florins, and the IMRB CSOMBOR. third 240,000 florins. The cashier duly locked the three cases and handed them over to the mail clerk, who, on his part, put the cases into baskets, then each one in a separate bag, and duly sealed them, and placed 'on each, three locks. Then he put them in the mall package store and locked the door. The mail wagon arrived at seven o'clock, and the clerk wanted to place the'three valuable bags> in it, but he found only -two. The most valuable, containing 240,000 florins, was missing. • The whole postofflce was turned up- Bide down; all the detectives were put on .the case; circulars were sent out all Over the world; a reward of 10,000 florins was offered; about two hundred persons were arrested and released; but no trace of the "postkistl" was fpund. In every comic paper- and in every music hall the "postkistl" was the object of jokes, and finally the word "postkistl"'became the meaning of what the police never could find. After nearly twelve years somebody wrote a letter to Dr. Selley that the almost forgotten "postkistl" was stolen by Imre Csombor, who kept an inn in Budapest and was considered rich. Dr. .Selley did not pay any attention to that 'anonymous letter, .which he considered part of-the old-joke, but when another letter ca,me, in ,which Joseph Suppicic, a rich land owner in Selve, Dalmatia, was mentioned as the accomplice of that robbery, Dr. Selley though^ it worth while trying. He sent one of his captains v to Selve. With the police of that locality he went to Suppicic's house. The latter immediately made a full'confession. After Dr. Selley had received from his subordinate a di&patch, he arrested Csombor. Not bnly the whole 240,000 florins 'if// JOSEPH SUPPIOJC. • the two piases.'but much jnbre..

S6iUe years ago, ih the tewft where thfe paper is published, thefe lived a man who had a wife and daugh> ter. He seemed prosperous, and hid Credit was good for anything he sired; One fine starlight night he dig* appeared, taking with him -nearly everything that wasn't nailed dowft. H6 had fflad6 about every man in town a creditor, and when he went away the people betook themselves into outer darkness for awhile and waited and gnashed their teeth. The wife and daughter were treated the same as the rest. They found themselves destitute. The fiend in human form who had so long officiated as husband and father had left them not a dollar. The lady and her daughter were, of course, looked coldly upon for a while, as people believed them to be in collusion with the departed. But they were not depressed by this. They went manfully to work like little heroines in a play; the mother did sewing, and the daughter <Md whatever she' could get' to do. They prospered, as they deserved to prosper. The older heroine in time established a millinery store which captured all the trade, while the younger became principal of the schools. They had money in the bank, and could eat ice cream whenever they wanted to. The other day a seedy tramp called at the back door of a lady's residence and asked for a drink and something to eat. The good woman looked at him intently, and recognized her husband. And now the really beautiful part of this story conies in. Did the lady kill the fatted calf for the prodigal and bid him welcome and forgive the past? Not to any great extent. She called the family dog, a large creature with a penchant for humain remains, and no man ever' climbed a tree quicker than did the erring husband. DUB Up n .Jar Containing Old Coin. Thomas Moore, Jr., and two other workmen, while excavating for. pipe connections at Market Square; in Chester, 'Penn., the other morning,, Unearthed a small preserving .•• jar, containing gold' and. silver Spanish coin, estimated to be worth at least $150. Some of the coin bore the date of 1800, and other pieces a later date. An old market house, erected in the last century, stood on the slte ( where the nfpney was found, and it was torn doWh in 1857. It is thought the money was buried by one of the marketmen. •She Wanted to Rule. Queenie Carroll, 16 years old, committed suicide at Creston, la., the other morning.

RAM'S:HORNS. The devil never makes any flank movements for which God is not prepared. Put a pig in a parlor, and its first question will be, "Well, Where's your mud?" There are a good many things the devil can't do without the help of a hypocrite. Whoever gives as God prospers him, will never have to stop'giving for lack of funds. Until we are willing to do all in empower to answer our prayer, we do not pray. The man who can learn from his own mistakes, can always be learning something. Whenever God's chariot comes to a standstill, it is because there are obstacles in the 'Way that human hands can remove. Before we try to load others, we ought to be sure that we are closely following Christ. JusMllHble. Nurse—"Bertie, you naughty boy. leave of! playing with your, soldiers < directly.
