.BARBOUR COUNTY INDEX. M. L. SHEltrY, Publisher. MEDICINE LODGE, - KANSAS. SCIENCE. A paper on the harm done by earth worms Is a timely contribution to the pages of the Country Gentleman by Frofessor F. IL Storer, of Harvard Unlve rsity. It was suggested by Mr. Darwin's recent remarkable work on the habits and wonderful powers of theso apparently insignificant creat ures. Mr. Storer says the pernicious Influence of earth-worms in a flower pot is well known to florists, and thinks It not impossible that each of the 53, 000 worms estimated to occupy the surface foot of one acre of land may do nearly as much harm as In the sin gle flower-pot. As to whether they eat the roots of growing plants he does not know, but he evidently inclines to the opinion that they do. There is an old notion that they eat potatoes. In New England earth-worms have cer tainly Increased vastly in number since the settlement of the country. They were so scarce in some districts in the early part of this ceaturv...

The noblest men I know on eaith, Are men whoso hands are brown with toil, Who, backed by no ancestral groves, Hew down the wood and till the soil, And win thereby a prouder name Than follows kindly warrior's fame. The working men. whate'er the task Who catvti the stone or bear the hod, They bear upon their honest brows The royal j-Ump and seal of God ; And worthier are their drops of sweat Than diamonds In a coronet.

Last night a sad-looking drummer arrived in the city. He had just made a tour of several of the northwestern counties, and. as he expressed it, had enough experience in one house toward the "shank" of his trip to seive for years of adventurous reminiscence. "Several days ago' said the drum mer to a party of acquaintances last night at the Capital hotel, "I was rid ing along through the woods, wet, weary, and hungry. I had hired a horse at a farm-house, and was accom panied by a colored boy on another horse, who was sent to take the horse back when I reached the railroad. "Well, as I was riding along through a country where the road was a mere patli, and where the woods were so thick that they reminded me of a per petual evening, I was suddenly con fronted by two men, who, with leveled guns, told me to hold up my hands.
