So he was, indeed; and he might well r*m 60 .quickly, for he was running for his - ife. The English had lately established ra small post in that part of the tains, and this young chief-for ?g^he was-together with his father .and one or two of bis friends, had made a league of brotherhood, with them, and assisted them in various ways.. But this did not suit the other - chiefs, who looked suspiciously at the -coining of the 41 Topee-W allahon Inggrez" (English hat fellows), and mutter...

A Blood-curdling Story, THE Vienna correspondent of the Daily News telegraphs:-At the Hun garian village of Komaroa, near Great Kanisza, a peasant's child had fallen ill, The young doctor who was called in, suspected the approach of brain fever, ordered powders of calomel and. anti-pyrine. The reg ular doctor of the district visited the child the same evening, and confirmed his colleague's treatment, though at first he thought the child had showed signs of swallowed poison. He noticed a bad smell in the house, but as bad smells are not uncommon in the houses of the Hungarian peasantry he did not heed it. The next morning he was frightened oat of his sleep by half the village, which had assembled outside his house with threats, and the terrible news that in the peasant's house where the sick child was lying all had died in the night. He hastened to the scene, and describes it as having been most horrible. All persons in the room had stiffened into death in the same life like position...

SHARP GRIT FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
SHABP GBIT FOE FOWLS. A " fabmeb's wife," writing in the Warming World, describes lier experience of the effects on poultry of the absence of sliarp grit in their runs. She says:-One constantly hears the complaint that after a certain time of having poultry on the same ground, they begin to cease to thrive. And -in - fact the mow perfect the arrangements for the poultry, the more aggravating they are in flu's way. They have thriven splendidly for some ytars, and then comes a season when they begin to droop. The young hens are ! seen moping about, apparently with very j full crops, but when.caught, though the crop I is full and hard, the body is light and thin, l>y and bye one is found lying dead, and then another. If this goes on long enough, there isaiofc a doubt poultry won't pay, and yet it seems strange that with a perfectly unlimited run, this should happen (I am speaking of my own case). Sow I know the reason, and I give my experience for the benefit of other farmers' wives...

L a i. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 23 May 1891
i- a I. It was in that birthplace of Colour, the region of valley which lies along the Chat tooga. River, that the humble cabin home of * Moonshine Jim' was located, resembling in itsred.roofed isolation, a glowing ruby in a setting of emerald green, Only by contrast, for the red roofwas so low that it nestled ia the tender verdure of the rich fields that hid all its defects, and exaggerated all its beau ties. Just beyond was another accentuation of colour,' the blood-red blossoms of the cotton fields which, glowed in ruddy verdure all along the bottom-lands, like mimic seas of flame. Over all this gorgeous vegetations arched a sky of -Neapolitan blue, the mid day sky of Georgia, cloudless and with & dome of endless perspective. As far as the eye could reach there was only this one habitation, with its red roof sunken to the ground. But in the low door way was something fairer and of more ex quisite workmanship than the blue skies, or the red blossoms or sweet fields of livi...
