Our readers are invited to notice the article below written from Shepherdstown, W. Va., to the Baltimore “Sun” by “E. 1). B.” under the heading “A New Use for Wire Fences.” We believe the idea is a good one, and would like some of our neighbors to experiment. Here it is: In traveling through the country as a “drummer” I notice a vast increase in the amount of wire used for fencing, and the thought has often struck me what a grand tel* ephone exchange could be established for the benefit ol the farmers of our country by means of these very wires.

ball with such vengeance as that. 1 sprang erect and said: “Now it’s your turn,’’ and sent my ice bolt at him as if it had come from a cannon. He ducked, of course, but I had calculated on that, and the ball hit him square on the ear with a thud that made my heart stand still. He flung his arms over his head and fell back against the gate by which he just entered. His face was pale and he gasped for breath. Although with set teeth and tears in his eyes, he smiled a ghastly smile. “O, master!” he half sobbed, .“your arm’s a heavy one.” “You see, Jim,” I said, with a lightness I did not feel,” “snowballs, like chickens, come home to roost.” “They do that,” gasped Jim, as he poked the crushed ice out of his ear with his forefinger, “and they roost mighty solid, you bet.” He was grit clear through and never whimpered. When school was assembled I said: “Boys, the trustees hired me to teach the young idea how to shoot. I have given Jim, there, a lesson on shooting that, if it didn't, as i...

Why She Wanted a She Baby. “Here,” says a Philadelphian, “is a child's anecdote: My little daughter, Violet May, aged seven, who has wanted a little playmate, asked our doctor if he did not sell babies. He said‘Yes; one dollar for girls and two for boys.' She went upstairs and brought one dollar and liity cents out of her money box. ‘There,' said she, ‘I want a very good she baby.’ The extra fifty cents were to secure a warranted one. ‘Why not take a boy?’ asked the doctor. ‘Well,’said little May, ‘I am told that boys very often turn out badly when they grow up—staying out late at night and wanting latch-keys, or people to sit up and let them in. I shall do no such thing, I can tell you, and must have a she baby that will stay at home with me and mamma.’ ” How Long Man May Live. It was Professor llufeland’s opinion that Ihe limit of possible human life might be set at two hundred years.
