Our treatment of animals in a large degree measures the standard of morals and culture to which we have attained, maintains Colman's Rural World. Of the fifty-six locomotives for which a single Philadelphia firm has re ceived orders within the last week, twenty-two are for the Government State Railway of Finland, twenty-four are for the Government railway of Brazil and ten are for the Grand Trunk Railway of Canada. These contracts, representing widely sep arated parts of the world, plainly in dicate the high regard in which American locomotives are held by progressive railroad scientists. Their superiority has placed them in high favor in almnost every country on the globe. Poultrymen who make the raising of ducks a specialty, and who have advanced ideas, are reaping a harvest just now from the demand for "green ducks," as a table delicacy.

We only know he brings us loss or gain, The rose of pleasure, or the rue of pain-/ all changes manifold of life or death, From a leaf's promise to a dying breath. We only know when this old earth and sky Pass into nothinguness, he cannot die- The silent ruler with his scyth3 and glass, Our Father Time, who sees the nations pass Yet gives no token over land or sea Of his new rclgn-the veiled eternity. -W.

THE KICKER. Elcking in the morning, Kicking if the weather Kicking all the day; Happens to be dry; Kicking if he's busy, Kicking when the rain is ' Kicking at delay, Tumbling from the sky. Thus the chronic kicker Kicking in.the summer, Fills his life with woes, Heat has then no charm; Frowning, grumbling, wrangling, Kicking in the winter, Everywhere he goes. Then he'd have it warm. Nothing ever suits him, Kicking every mealtime, Always finding fault; Glaring at the meat; Every kind of pleasure Often he is saying: He is sure to halt. "Nothing fit to eat." Scowling at the children, Kicking when he's reading, Growling at his wife; Grumbling at the light; Turning peace and comfort Now and then denouncing Into constant strife. Everything in sight. Kicking in the morning, Kicking all the day; Kicking in the evening, Kicking should he pray. Kicking while he's thinking, Kicking while in bed; Wonder if he'll keep on Kicking when he's dead. -Pittsburg Chronicle Telegraph, Master Waller, Diplo...

Hattiesburg is a growing little city away down in Mississippi on the road that leads from Meridian to New Or leans. It is in the piny woods and derives large revenue from lumber and turpentine. It is the market for many thousand bales of cotton, but business does not seem to be derpressed on ac account of the price. There are large stocks of goods and the stores are thronged with customers, and the hotels thronged with traveling sales men, for where the carcass is the eagles will be gathered together. I know there is money there, for it is a sure sign of prosperity when over 400 good people turn out to a lecture and pay 50 cents apiece for it.
