Ihe tUttkly iUtestngcr. Published Weekly -AT St Martinsville, L a. -BY EASTIN da EIENVENU. Rowan county, Ky., which during the past few years has attained an un enviable notoriety by the number of feuds that it has furnished, as a cure for its debilitating state of lawlessness has been returned to the two counties from which it was originally constructed. The legislature by this means hoped to divide the labors of sheriffs and grand juries so that they may be more effec tive. The only fear, remarks the Inter Ocean, is that the feud may become the fashion in adjoining counties now that Rowan has been rent in twain and its name obliterated from the map. Gilbert Burrows, treasurer of the Grand opera house in Dayton, Ohio, was the victim recently of an electrical shock over a telephone wire that nearly proved fatal. He was about to answer a ring from the instrument and took hold of the 'phone, when, with a sharp cry of pain, he staggered backward, and, despite his struggles, he could no...

FOB FARI AND tiARDLEN. Crepe for an Orthard. As a rule, an orchard should not be Cropped, but if it is in vigorous condi tion and making much wood, it may be a benefit to it to be cropped occasion ally. The best crops are those that are cultivated, potatoes being the best; peas, beans and clover are desirable, but grain crops are not. Care is to be taken not to break the surface roots by deep p!owing near the trees, by which the growth of suckers is encouraged, en an orchard Is not thrifty manurs- nud plowing and seeding with clover, leav ing the clover to fall on the ground, are very beneficial. - New York Times.

A Few Reasons Why Immi gration is Wanted. First -Our country is too sparse- I ly stettled, aund we wish it to be t filled up with a "get up" sort of a class of citizens. Second - There is a demand for r more products than are raised here. I We have too many acres of land I to the mnan, hence they cannot work it well and generally half of it is lying idle, some having never 1 been cultivated for years. So by I bringing in more people, they can E take up all of these idle tracts, put them into cultivation, and E make them produce the finest j, grain and vegetables that are now I flourishing in weeds. I Third--By bringing immigra tion down here it will go to impro- I ving the country. Everybody A will be busy. The laboring man c will find no difficulty in obtaining C work, wages will be better and C everything in a more prosperous condition. Fourth-It will demand the ' erecting of factories for the ma nufacturing of home products. Ca ning factories will be built to take b care of our v...

In Canada landlords do not rent a house without inserting in the lease a clause to the effect that the tenaats should not play the piano on Sunday, nor any game of cards through the week. The Philadelphia Record says the cruelty of American shipmasters is worse than that of any other nation, and it is becoming almost impossible to get American sailors to go before the mast with them. English officers who are acquainted with the Grecian army declare that 20,000 Greeks would not be a match for 12,000 troops of any other nation.

FOR FARIT AND GARDEN. e Ieed-.Prdeina sa eg'etabeld, h In the vegetable as well as the animal h kingdom the production of seed is what h exhausts. Beano, cucumbers, etc., go h on bearing through a long season if we o pick off all the fruit while green; but if a we leave but one to mature its seed, the fi plants stop their free yield of fresh ti fruits.

4l4t Wtkly Alceengetr. Published Weekly -AT St Martinsville, L a. -BY- EASTIN £ BIENVENU. Botanists assign various dates to the birth of the giant trees of California, or sequoias, as they are called. It has been claimed that the yew lives a thou sand years, and even this 'age was thought to be incredibly great; but to the colossal patriarchs of the Califor nian forests must be assigned an age far exceeding a thousand years. Among the various estimates of their age the least is 1, 800 years, and the probability is that even this figure is much too small, some placing it at 3,000 years. Since the death of Katkoff, the St. Petersburg journalist, the man who is supposed to have the most influence with the czar of Russia, is his former tutor, Possett, with whom he has al ways been intimate.

ILt Wttklp *lesstngr. Published Weekly -AT St Martinsville, L a. -BY EASTIN a BIENVENU. The thaler or dahler is a coin nearly the same in value as our dollar. It is so called because the first dollars were coined in a dale--dahl-namely, the valley of Fouchinethal in Bohemia. The first American dollars were coined € in 1794, through a suggestion of Alexan der Hamilton. They contained 3871.25 grains of pure silver. One of these early silve coins now commands a price of one hudred dollars. The birthplace of General Grant, in the village of Point Pleasant, Ohio, is still in good repair, and used as a dwell ing. With no accident it will last a century yet. The Cincinnati Centennial managers have offered a bag sum for the old home, and the Columbus Centen nial managers have offered $1,000 for its rent, with a guarantee that they will replace it unhurt upon its founda tions when the Centennial celebration is over.
