as fair a land as the sun ever shone on.

infancy but few fields indicate thorough
culture such as is given ill the older
states yet the loads of corn we met af-
ler leaving your city indicate good
yields and cribs ready to burst and huge
piles on the ground show that there is
a large surplus At Liberty I met some
Kansas Missouri and Texas people.

State who seenfs very much interested

party generally ai d the production of
hogs localy: he has some that would do
credit to any country. 1 think if your
farmers would grow hogs to eat the
huge piles of corn, t Iklahoma would I ot
know that times were hard. Yours is
evidently a good wheat country: 1 saw

When it is difficult to choose a gift
for a friend, undoubtedly the best
plan is to give something that one
lias been at some pains to make.
One can imagine that Catherine
tlio Great, empress of Russia, und
Voltaire, the French philosopher,
might have been puzzled to know
what really welcome presents to send
each other, since the empress bad
everything that wealth could buy.
and t lie philosopher's wants were few
The two were cordial friends and
carried on a brilliant correspondence
for years. A friend of Voltaire who
had seen the great philosopher knit
tells this story of an exchange of at-
tentions between him and tho em
Catherine once lmd tho pleasant
idea of sending her correspondent an
ivory snuffbox, which slio made her-
self—probably with some assistance.
Voltaire was much pleased with
the gift. Ho took a few knitting les
sons of his niece and then sent to
Catherine the beginning of a pair of
white silk stockings which ho had
knitted himself, with n6nio witty and
graceful verses in which he saiil that
having received a man's work from
her hands, he begged her to accept a
woman's work from his.—Youth's

The geographical center of the
suicidal mania is Saxony, which
yields an enormous crop—400 cases
to every 1,000,000 inhabitants. Among
all the civilized states Germany rolls
up tho greatest number, anaverageof
220 to every 1,000,000 souls. The
other countries range in the follow-
ing succession: France, Austria, Bel-
gium, England. Italy and Russia. The
smallest number of suicides occurs in
the country where there is the most
oppression and the most suffering—
the Emerald Isle. Denmark, on the
other hand, furnishes a strikingly
large percentage of the suicides.—St.

The Calumet electric street rail-
way, operating about .10 miles of
track in the southern part of Chicago
and its suburbs, has placed in each of
its cars a map which shows plainly
how to get to various points on tho
line. The map is a blue print, the
routes are shown in heavy white
lines and only the streets through
which the tracks run are given. The
names <<l the.v streets and of the
suburbs are printed in large white
letters, easily read from any part of
the car.—('hie; i go News.
