A True Fish Story.
The following clipping from a paper
in Canada will readily gain credence:

town last Saturday from a ten days'
outing among the back rivers and lakes,
with blistered hand and sunburned
noses, tell an a-w-f-u-1 fish story. As

we have no reason to
doubt the truth of it. By the killing of
this fish a great mystery has been
solved in that section. The creamery

there should be a diminution in the

How tho Colonel Made Room.
Do you think," asked the colonel, as
dent to extreme heat and cold. It is also
claimed that the structure is of such i
a solid character that earthquakes or !
similar disturbances will have no ap- i

whether the continuous tubing may j

no more danger of this than there

The Migration of Ilralns.
A medical authority asserts that a
post-mortem examination of the fingers
of a blind man discloses, at the tips, a
deposit identical with the gray matter
of the brain. It has for years been a
noted fact that blind people become
marvelously apt in detecting things
with their fingers, and this statement
gives rise to the query just what is
brain matter, and how does it act? This j
authority seems inclined to the belief
that nature compensates for the loss of |
sight by transferring to the finger-tips
some of the perceptive matter of the
brain, and this accounts for the super-1
sensitiveness of the touch of people
with defective vision. Blind persons j
who perform no manual labor have
very delicate hands and finger-tips, and j
there may be some truth in the theory j
of a brain migration. It is quite as j
plausible, however, to believe that j
there are in the finger-tips latent cells j (hat tJw gurface of an entjre spherf, j he cocjted llis revolver, "that you can

drawcut on wood is much easier than
when the knife moves with the grain.
Drawing the knife back and forth,
therefore, has practically the effect of
a saw, although the teeth are so fine
they cannot bo seen by the naked eye.
For this reason the back and forth
movement with llie knife severs the fi-

woods more smoothly.

Th« Value of Trees.
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 tho land-owner ever slopped 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 ten-
ants, make life more enjoyable and
that too at practically no cost? We tell
is an ico i you there is a great deal of selfishness
moun- j when we look abroad and see how
stingy and selfish many are with their
tenants, and oftentimes perchance some
good farmer rentsi his farm and moves
away and is so selfish as to reserve all,
yes, all the fruit produced,denying oven
this to his tenant. Land-owners owe
tlicir tenants and the public generally,a
duty by planting at least a moderate
quantity of trees. This is a wiso pub-
lic policy. -Ornamental Tree Growing.
