Is this the fruit of Keailjusterism? Dilfinger says the reason kit- tens are so playful is because they love a-mews-ment. Mrs. Dilfinger wants to know who this Aunty Polygamy is that is holding meetings throughout the country. An effort is being made to cre- ate a cabinet officer of the Com- missioner of Agriculture. Let- tuce not turnip our noses at this movement. We are indebted to Hon. G. W. Jones for a number of valu able public documents. "Hot rolls for one," said the hotel waiter, as he rolled up a cigsjrette and lit it. Columbia, Brazoria county, is inundated from the high waters. Citizens have to go from house to house in boats.

Careful experiments have proved that corn which is hilled Will blow down more readily lh..n that which has level cul- ture. This can be accounted for. by the fact that corn roots run very near the service, and when hills are made they are routined to the small space covered by the hill; while iu level culture the roots run from one row to the other, thus enabling the corn to stand strong, as nature in-' tended, and in no way liable to be blown down except by winds of unusual violence. Soot for plants.—Collect some root from a chimney or stove where wood is used i'or fuel, put into-an old pitcher, and pour hot water upon it. When cool use it to water plants every few days. The effect upon plants is won- derful in producing a rapid growth of thrifty shoots, with large thick leaves and a great number of richly-tinted roses.
