TRE LAFAYETTE ADVERTISER L.&F YiITE. LOUISIANA. John Wesley Haslett, of Kansas City, Mo., claims the championship belt in a hovel branch of industry. He is the "sticker" for a packing company, and claims that in fourteen years' service he has slain 8,400,000 hogs. From Finland comes the news that the Czar of Russia is preparing to abolish the liberties of that country, where for eighty years the spectacle has been presented of a free State subject to the most despotic power in ?he civilized world Among the criminals "wanted" in vew York city, on charges ranging from the confidence game to bank robbery, are fourteen men who have received college educations. At least six of them gradu ated with the highest honors, and all seem to have turned to crime from a liking for the bad side of life.

Farm and Firesidi thinks that the pre vailing low prices of farm products, con sequent on continued overproduction, will force the farmers of this country to diversify their industries. It is an astonishing and regretable fact, remarks the Washington Star, that 2700 courts in the United States are engaged in granting divorces and that one mar riage in every twenty-eight is thus an nulled. The reason why so many foreigners are arriving here is, alleges the St. Louis Star-Sayinga, that hundreds of steamship agents are scouring around Europe, in ducing the off-scourings of the earth to come here. The New York Independent muses thus: Charleston had its earthquake, New York its blizzard, Johnstown its flood, Louisville its tornado, and now Baltimore has its amazing hailstorm.

FOREVER YOUNG. The wild world hastens on its way; The gray haired century nears its close; lie sorrow deepens day by day; The summer blush forsakes the rose. But, darling, while your voice I hear, And while your'dark brown eyes I see, Sad months and sunless seasons drear Are all the same, all glad to me. Despair can never reach me While your soft hand I hold; While your eyes love and teach me I shall never grow old! They say that love forsakes the old, That passion pales and fades away; That even love's bright locks of gold Must lose their charm and change to gray. But, darling, while your heart is mine, Aud while I feel that you are true, For me the skies will ever shine With summer light and tenderest blue.

Without, the wind is bitter, The snowflakes fill the night; Within, the embers glitter And gild the room with light; And in the fireplace gleaming The backlog sings away, And mingles all my dreaming With birds, and blooms, and May! -Frank D.
