Gouverneur Morris ot New York, in 1772, proposed to the Continental congress a decimal currency system. He euggested ten units equal one penny; ten pennies, one bill; ten bills, one dollar; ten dollars, one crown. In 1784 Jefferson proposed the system as now in use; Congress in July, 1785, resolved that the coinage should conform to the decimal system. Claude' Joseph Rouget de I'Isle, a French writer, composed the "Mar- eeillaise." He is said to have written the song and composed the music one evening in a burst of patriotic frenzy. He called it the "Song of the Armr ; of the'Rhine." •It'wals sung by the volunteers from Marseilles and the south of France as they entered Paris, Aug. 10, 1792, and received its present name from them. FAST MAIL TRAIN TO OMAHA, OW that the water- gates from oh high have been opened, after the manner of "Auld Lang Syne,*' the wiseacres who have been predict'- •ing this country would no longer get the usual average of rainfalls of form e r yeaf a, on jjcount of the great change wrought in physical features of the country, by the destruction of forests and the reclaimed marshes interspersed through their once almost impenetrable fastness, will have to "knock under," (self included), for nothlngie apparently more easy thau to see rain pouring straight down out of clouds not much larger than a bed blanket; that last year were as devoid of the coalescent vapors as the cuticle covering the phiz of some teetotaler would be of bourbon putrescent iniquities. "Whence the wind cometh or whither it goeth man knoweth not," may be quite as applicable with our rainfall from standpoint of observation by the ken of humble mortals dwelling on this mundane sphere. And yet here comes an argument favorable to increase of rainfall in lower California, on account of a largely increased area of Umber and orchard culture; BO that 'tis a poor rule that, don't work both ways, notwithstanding phenomenal conditions existing as at present time. The promising oat and corn crop of a few weeks ago has been materially injured by a profusion of showers, rotting oats in the shock, and damaging corn, by the continued soaking of soil about the roots and stalks. Twelve years ago Grant county, Indiana, was the banner county in the state or United States for the number of tile mills turning out tiles for underdraining the low level lands within its border, not unlike many others in that respect, covering an area of many hundreds of square miles in several states; but the rapid conversion from swamp to grain fields, followed by a series of unusual dry summers in succession, most all ithe factories had been closed indefinitely and many abandoned altogether, yet recent rains have created considerable stir among the farmers and tilemen, again reviving their manufacture, and a number have started in turning out a moderate supply. That it pays the farmer, as well as any other man with a business, to be on the alert at all times and ever ready to push his business to best advantage, even to a change of method,-is never more apparent ,than during unfavorable seasons for work. One man near here who puts up considerable quantities of hay each year has been following the plan of cutting all his meadows and piling the hay in small heaps over the entire field, before stacking or .mowing into sheds. This year he got about all cut and in cock, but the One ot tUe Best Trains to be Found tiie World. ,/TJ. "l-l "1 , . 1 *-T . I 11.

Another thing noticeable, this year with wheat and oats crop harvested by several different parties is rented ground for share of the crop. That the soil was put in very fine condition, but for want of having thoroughly cleaned the seed or set the drill for planting a sufficient quantity, crop wasn't so good. As an instance, one drilled in his oats about two bushels per acre and had a clean crop of oats that threshed out all right from the shock excepting for a little dampness of grain in cap sheaves, The other roan used same drill following day in portion of same field of forty acres, wJtli same kind of soil and advantages, but did not put so much seed in to the acre, consequently stand was not so good as the flther, and the few little rag weeds occupying spaces, this prolific year for the weed crop everywhere, given a chance, was gathered in the sheaves by the binder, and, tho' shocked well, much of the oats was badly damaged by the weeds rot' ting in the sheaves and making something pear ten bushels less per acre, iWHb several pieces or wheat a like pondltion existed for want of properly seed and planting uufflcjent be very warm, and the hlvfe vfefy full a! bees, it would mi bs safe ttf ftote & hive having new combs full o! honey» In hot weather, or in any Weather, fiut we We not so much concerned with moving bees in box hives as those having movable frames, in shipping bees several things need to he attended to: 1. They must be carefully shut «p, so that not a bee can escape. A very few loose faees cah quiakiy demoralize ft whole crew ot railroad' hands and a few draymen thfown in. 2, The frames must be securetf so that they will not be jostled out of their places. This can best be doiie by driving a three-penny fine nail through each end of the top bar of every ffamCj find Into the hive, fittt some one may ask: "What Will you do with the bees While that is being done?" That is easily managed When you only know how. Have tnade 6 lot of wooden strips the length of the top bars of the frames, and large enough to flt down between them. With these strips pressed down between the frames the bees are effectually prevented from coming out at the top of the hive. 1 use a very simple and convenient device for closing the entrance of the hive. I take a piece of inch board as long as may be necessary (for the Langstroth hive it,,would have to be just as long as the width of 'the hive inside of the portico), and 1% inches wide. Near each end of this I saw in, about an inch and cut out the wood between the saw cuts, and then take a strip of the same length one inch wide, and one-half inch thick, cut out a piece the same length as the notch in the other, and half way through it. This I nail to the notched edge of the larger piece. When nailed together I have a block having an opening under one side, when laid down on its face, half an inch high and six or eigth inches long. Over the opening in the top, which is one inch wide and six or eight inches long, tack wire cloth. When this Is placed against the entrance to the hive, the hive is effectually closed, and yet there is abundant ventilation. The device is easily and cheaply made and there is no other way so convenient for shutting bees in the hive for any purpose. There should be a hole through each end of this block through •which a nail -may be passed, and driven slightly into the alighting board to keep it in place* When you have put the strips between the top bars of the frame and have tacked the shutting In block to the front of the hive, you can proceed to fasten the ends of the frames at your leisure. The heads of the nails should be left out, so that they may be easily pulled out with a claw-tool. When the ends' of the frames have been tacked fast, the strips may be removed, or so many of them as may be necessary to give free ventilation. Now have a honey board with as many as three inch holes in it, covered with wire cloth, and nail it over the frames, remove the block that shuts the bees in, and let them fly until even- Ing. Then when all are in, nail your block on the entrance of the hive and it is ready to ship. 8. The third thing necessary is plenty of ventilation, and as that has been provided for, in describing the manner of shutting the bees in, nothing more need be said about it. 4. Care should be taken that the combs shall not be heavy with honey. If they contain much honey, it should be extracted, even if it has to be fed back. 5. If many hives are to be shipped together and the weather is warm, they should, by all means, be placed in a stock car that the aninaal heat may not injure them. In 1878, I shipped over forty hives from Newcastle to Logansport, a distance of eighty miles, in a stock car and all went through in perfect order. In 1880 I shipped forty- seven hives from Logansport to Huntington, on a warm April day, In a box car, left only partly open, and they were badly damaged, as, In about a dozen hives the combs were more or less broken and in some the bees were nearly all dead. In some hives in which the combs were not broken, and there were but a few dead bees, the brood was all killed, and after some days dragged out. They were damaged more than they otherwise would have been because there had been an unusual flow of honey for April, and the honey had not been extracted. I have snipped bees at all seasons of the year, from March until late in the summer, and never had any misfortune befall them, except in the one case above narrated, , OMEWS, SOME The bfid* who dreAms 5f fairJes the flight before her marriage -Will he thrice blessed.

Don't Wear an opal ift getting Inar* tied, gome people declare that Opals are lucky. History proves the .contrary, if the wedding ring is dropped during the ceremony the bfide may as well wish herself unborn, for she will always have evil luck. Kiss a bride right after the ceremony and before the newly made husband has had a chance to do so and you will have excellent luck throughout the year. Maidens eager to wed should give dish water heated to a boiling point a wide berth. It means that they will not marry for a long time if they attempt to cleanse dishes in water so hot. Night weddings are better than none, yet they are by no means the best. The bride whom the sunshine cannot fall upon is sure to experience troublous times. If she have children they will die young. Should the bride perchance see a coffin while being driven to the railroad station prior to departing upon her wedding tour she should order the driver to turn back and start over again, or else she will surely meet with bad luck.
