Is It Haunted ? The Paris correspondent of the " Daily News'" tells a strange etoryof a snpposed haunted honse. Its tenant, Vicomte de Larnage, has been a whole month tormented with noises for which he can assign no material or other cause. A week after they began he made a complaint to the Commis. sionerofPolice of the distriot. This is what he said in writing; - "M. Le Commissionaire-For eight days and nights my windows have been broken as if bullets had been firedat them. The holes made are as if pierced by the balls of rifles of the new model or rather by rifles of a still unknown model, they cutting through the glass without; otherwise breaking it. Ihave not found any projectiles, and can only speak of effects without going into caumes. This is not all. Every room in the house is noisy both day and night with cries and groans and howlings." Commissioner of Police Michant sent ten darmes and agents in plain clothes to watch the house, which is detached and sur surrounded by wall...

$trathi Creek. -0: [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] THINGS are very quiet hereabouts just now, the only event that is looked forward to with interest is the cricket match between Yea and the local c:ub. The Flowerdale captain has every confidence in his team's ability todown theYcaites. I expect to see a large number of spectators at the match. and, whoever wins, it ought to be a good game.I tip the local boys to come out on top on Saturday, as they are in great form just now. I was at the Glenmore match, and no mistake it was just horrible to see ythe fi.d ing of some of the Flowerdale meft 0p course the team was not the best by a long way, as five of the cup team were taking a spell. The Glen boys made a very good start, Carrol 13, Coates 2o, Qunlan 33, hbt if the fielding of the local boys had bcer up, to the usual standard, the scores po the above mentionec players would have b r., much smaller; although Tim (2uinlar. deserves a word of praise for the manner in which he made his ru...

After he had recovered himself a bit, he said to himself: "I wonder if this ice is very strong?" And he a?red the ice, "Say, ice, are you very strong?" " Very strong," said the ice. "If you are so strong, how does the sun melt you? The sun is stronger than you, that's why he melts you," said the hare. Then he turned to the eun,and said : "Say, sun, are you strong?" "Very strong," said the sun. "If youare so strong why do you let the clouds cover you! The clouds are stronger than you." Then he turned to the clouds, and asked : " Say, cloudse, are you strong 1" "Very strong," repled the clouds. '. If you are so strong, why do you let themonn. taines arret you!

He Was Discouraged. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894
He Was Discouraged. ----0 I was, for the sake of a view, climbing one of the rough peakS among the mountains of West Virginia one day, when I came to a very skimpy kind of a cornfield far up the mountain with a log cabin at one side of it. A man and a woman were hoeing corn and four or five children were pulling up the weeds. Work was immediately suspended when I appeared in sight, and I hailed the man to know the short ent to the summit. He came over to the brush fence and after he hadgiven me some instrnucions I asked him if he owned the farm. "It's nip an' tuck, stranger," he said, "whether I own the farm er bit owns me."

Examination Curiosities, The following curiosities of the examina. tion room-taken from the current issue of the "Sphinx" (the Liverpool University College journal)-onght to be bona.fide, and are certainly entertaining : "It might be expected," says the "Sphinx" "that candidates for Victoria degreeswould atleast be able to spell pass ably. The following specimens, are, how ever, are, to say the lelst, curious :--For social economy one wrote social comedy; he had probably been seeing 'Lady \inder mere's Fan,' or some other society comedy. "The authors of the following blunders ap parently, however, had conscientious objec. tions not only to seeing, but to reading a play. We find : 'Romeo and Jnilliet,' 'The Colony of Errors.'

Shrinkage of Wool. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894
Shrinkage of Wool, o- An Iowa agricultural bulletin reports a careful test of wool stored bydiffereut methods, iu order to decide whether wool lost in weight, and how much, if any. All the wool was exosed to free circulation of air, but ini some of the experiments it was sacked or boxed to exclude dust. In the boxed wool, April..heared fleeces weighing 47;lh. at shearing weighed 491b. on the lot of August, but at the end of the year had fallen back to its original weight. The fleeces on the shelf gained tbree.qacrtern of a pound in a total of 4Sulb, or increased to 491b. But June-sheared fleece did not gain, but lost about 6 per cent. of its original weight. It has been a common remark of farmers that wool was the one article they grew which did not lose, but generally gained in weight b keeping. Those expeiments shoiw that there i something in the farmers' Idea. The experi menter believes that heavy, oily wool losee most. Is this in accordance with the cxpe. rience of farmers? Has ...

The Uses of Arsenic. Mr H. C. L.

Itolhwell. manager of the Scientific Publishing Company of New York, may be of interest to some of your readers: " I note your own interest in agriculture, and would mention a fact of my personal e lerience, which has always appeared to me to be of al. most incaelculable mportance. It is the u e of arsenic in agriculture as a vermicide. I eaperi merted with it some years ago with very re markable roaeulta, but baro h. no opportunity to ollow it up. I used common white arsenic (arsenious oxide) of commerc (I used it crude) mixed with fertiliser of any kind, and applied it to theland in the proportion of from loth to to 30)lb of arsenic per acre.

Vegetable Members that Dance. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894
Vegetable Members that Dance. The fruits and spores of some plants may be said to dance. For instance, each minute spore of the common horse.tail plant is en veloped by two spiral bands, which roll round the spore when damp, and unroll on becoming dry. Hence, if the spores be breathed upon, they dance up and down. The fruits o a Mexican Sebastiana. and of a Mediterraean Tsmarix, execute hopping movements, occasioned by insect larva wlich lie inside them. Each fruittspikelet of the gross, Avena sterilis, has two long slender awns, which are bent in a knee.like fashion. When moistened, the two awns rotate in opposite directions, till they meet and press against each other. Eventually the pressure becomes so considerable that they violently slip past each other, thus causing the whole structure to jump. A repitition of these mover.ents causes the spikelet to Cance over the ground.
Extraordinary Case of Trance. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894
Extraordinary Case of Trance. From Militech, in Silesia, an extraor dinary case of trance is reported. It seems that owing to the grave not being in readiness some delay occurred in the burial of a lady, the wife of a major in the army, who to all appearances had died. On the fourth day after the lady'a supposed death the maid was placing fresh flowers round the coffin, when she was much startled at seeing the body move and finally assume an erect position. The lady had'evidently been in a state of coma during the past tour days and narrowly escaped being buried alive.
