Roland Reed's Bis Fish. Mr. Roland Reed found" himself besieged at the Russel.l house in Detroit by an army of frieuds and fellow jokers says theTjftrpit Free Press of that city. The subject of summer recreations came up and the comedian was betrayeTd into a recital of this boomerang tale: : "Last summer" began Mr. Reed "I was stopping at.a.place on Long Island with a lot of jolly boys. Bluefish were supposed to be abundant but none of the boys could stir a fin and they cursed the place as a consequence. "I had made the acquaintance of an old salt who told mo he knew of a place where the fish swarmed . and we put up a game on the oth- ers. Everyone received an invita- tion from me to attend a bluefish- supper. The old fellow and I had planned to slip away on the morn- ing of the appointed day1 and come home bringing our catch; then what a laugh we would have at the boys' expense. "Well the day came an.d long before it was light the old man and I-were out after that supper that was '...

She has re- cently published her journal the contents of which are summarized in the Spectator London. .We quote: "The wooden house which the exploration party built on the north coast of Inglefield Guld some miles due north of Whale Sound was the base of operations for Mr. Peary's expedition to the northeast coast of Greenland.across the inland ice. The- explorers sighted Greenland on June 24th 1S92 and at the end of July land- ed and built the house. Mr. Peary his leg having been broken by a blow from the ship's tiller was unable to take any active part in the work and it was not till the spring-was at hand that the broken limb recovered it. real strength just in time indeed for the ice journey. When the house was finished several men of the expe- dition were sent to search Herbert and Northumberland Islands for an Eskimo settlement and to in- j duce a family t...

Brownwood Society. Probably tbe most delightful so ciety event of the season in Brown wood was the coach party given at Mrs. Colonel Martin's residence complimentary to her daughter Mrs. Muse of St. Louis who is on a visit to her old home. Dr. Fowler the McAllister o the event originated the feature o the occasion which was the ar- ranging of the commodious par- loas in representation of chair-and smoking airs the passengers cos turned to represent all grades of humanity from the negro preach er to the bridal couple on their honey-moon. Twenty-minutes for " Bupper at Blanket was sufficient to convince all nassenfrers that rail- way eating houses and delicious culinary were not necessarily strangers.

Cultivation of the Pecan. To the Editor of the Scientific American: t In an article published in your paper .-epi ember 25 1886 on the "Pecan Tree" my attention was drawn to its cultivation and to the profits to be derived from same so .after careful investigation I embark- ed in the enterprise in the spring of 1888. My first step was to pro- cure land on the Pecan Bayou in Texas a mile from the cil.v of Brownwood where I found them in their native state. I have now an orchard of 400 acres from one to six years old. My experience no doubt will be a help to many who are contemplating embarking in the enterprise; alto lrom the amount of correspondence 1 have received from capitalists and farmers nil through the North and South 1 do believe that it will not be long before its cultivation will be found to rival that of the English waluut and that this section which is its. native home will be as famous for its pecans as the Los Nietos Valley in California for English walnuts. As an arti...

BUI Arp on the Times. "Well it looks like we have seen the worst of the financial crisis. We have been at the bottom and the situation is obliged to improve. Some say there can be starvation in the midst of plenty believe it. It took all but I don't of the two last year's crop to pay the people's debt and get them back to economy and now down here in Dixie is another abundant 'crop that will scatter money broadcast all over the South. Three hnndred imill- ions for cotton and $100000000 for surplus corn is a heap of money and it will come to stay. It won't go North to pay debts and it will have to go into cotton mills oil mills knitting mills can- ning factories or some other indus- tries that will give employment to labor. A letter from my son who is in England says he bought a firs.t- class cassimere suit of clothes for $10.00 and they will be nearly as cheap here this winter since the high tariff has been taken off.

of Modern DrlnK lng. A writer who' is discussing the question of drinking and total ab- stinence from a practical business point of view ignoring the .moral and sentimental side says: Life insurance companies find the mod erate dram drinker a more danger- ous risk and his mortality greater hence refuse to insure him at ordi- nary rates or at all. Mercantile agencies find that business conduct ed by moderate drinkers is more precarious and followed by . a great er number of lauures hence rate such firms low as to responsibility. Railroad companies find that acci dents and losses increase under the care of moderate dram drinkers; that the income and stability of the road are diminished compared with the same service by total ab- stainers. Capital everywhere dis covers by figures and statistics which have no other meaning that under the care and" control of mod- erate or excessive drinkers th.e losses risks and perils of business are increased Health Magazine.

i Negro Superstition. ! A young female house servant died on one of the plantations;' her j coffin was brought out into the yard at sunset and placed on tres- tles before the cabin door. . At dusk the negro children joined hands and went around it in a 1 kinp of dance singing all the time. At 10 or 11 o'clock the fellow-ser vants of the dead woman assembled for her funeral. Unantee it is the custom to bury the dead exactly twenty-four hours after death. A lady1 who had lived for many years on a San tee plantation sain: a young colored man died suddenly at six o'clock in the morning. Next day I was awakened at dawn by a chant the strangest most melancholy tune: so mournful that it almost make mo weep -thinking of the man who had been so unexpectedly called away." But as this same lady saidiJthe colored people do not exactlv fear death on the contrary they invest it with a sort of religious exulta- tion and the majority of them certainly regard the Lord as a warm personal friend.

Safety conservatism liberality accommodation to customers a specialty these are the four car- dinal points that have given the Brownwood National bank perma- dent rank as the leading financial institution of this couutry.

Not yet three years old it showed in the last official statement rendered 8112000 deposits and $105000 available cash no re-discounts no bills payable and only $55000 loans while their capital and sur- plus alone are 68000.
