The moonlight, as it glinted on the soft green of the hedges and streaked the gray of the dusty road, was very beautiful, and before half a league had been passed over I heartily congratu­ lated myself upon my good fortune in escaipiiig the horrible'inn'at Loud re. After an hour's dreamy and delight­ ful ride 1 came to a cross roadg where with difficulty I deciphered the bat­ tered signpost and learned 1 must turn to tlio left to reach Danvers. So, cluck­ ing up my deliberate steed, which pro­ ceeded in a half dignified,, half pro­ testing fashion, 1 turned into a grassy lane between two tall hedges, and drove through a lonely district until' the dreamy .influence of night- over­ came me, and I drifted into a somno­ lent state midway between sleep and waking. I was aroused by the sudden halting of my horse, that gave a frightened snort and planted both front feet firm­ ly before him. distress A subdued sobbing, as of a wo...

WHISKERS FROM THE SEA, Something Coneernlhg the Formation of a Curious Marine Growth. There is a marvelous marine growth colled Bfirtularia whichhas the appear­ ance of a delicate bush, although its slender stalks or fibers are built up by thousands of minute animals, some­ thing as the coral polyp builds up the coral. It is found, says the New York Sun, in dumps and bunches on wreck­ age and stones and elsewhere, and sometimes it is torn loose in storms and driven ashore. The many thousands of tiny creatures which have built it up and inhabit it die, and the dead bush is called- a skeleton. Jts fibers shrink some now and they are even finer than they were. They may be a foot in length sometimes nearly two feet. They are brown, some bunches being dark and some of a lighter shade. As the children of the carpenter adorn themse...

Everybody knows that it does not pay to keep poor cows but almost every dairyman thinks that it is the other fellow that is keeping the poor cows, and he is keeping the good ones, and proceeds to prove it by pointing out old Bess and Spot and Cherry. that fill a pail night and morn­ ing. If you ask him what per cent of butter fat these cows test .lie will an­ swer that he has never tested them, but that they give rich milk, and clinches it by adding that his wife says "there is always a thick cream on tile milk of .ur cows.'' If you ask him how many pounds of milk each one of them gives in a year, he will tell you that he has not kept au exact account: but lie weighed their milk one evening in .Tune and tliey gave about twenty pounds at a milk­ ing. and. as if to definitely settle the question in favor of the cows, he wil...

THE COOK COUNTY HERALD. OFFICIAL PAPEI OF COOK COUNTY. CHRIS MURPHY, Editor and Propietor. Terms, $1,0,0 a Year in Advance. GRAND MARAIS, MINN., DEC. 12, 1896. MADE FROM NIGHTMARES. Methods Used by Artists Who Design Popular Grotesque Posters. People who dine late at night in a certain uptown restaur!)nt may have noticed a well-dressed, wild-eyed, hag­ gard-faced, dyspeptic man devouring night after night with apparent relish dishes which only the ultra brave have courage to eat more than once a month. That man is an artist, says the New York World, and eating indigestible food is a part of his business, for he is a maker of posters. Since the use of grotesque posters, built on the lines of Aubrey Beardsley's phantom fan­ cies and on the principle of Chimpanzee Johanna's savage sketches, has become general as a means of advertising news­ papers it is no more than right that the world should know how the de­ signs are conceived. The case of this wild-eyed, haggard faced, dyspeptic ar...

Mrs. Nettie Coke, attorney at law in Fresno, expects to sail on the steamer Mariposa on the 15th instant for Jo­ hannesburg, South Africa, where she will engage in the practice of law. Mrs. Coke, who expects to arrive in San Francisco to-day, has become known to Fresno as a woman endowed with unusual pluck, and possessing at the same time a happy faculty of being able to make her way in the world without much trouble. Her many friends were astonished somewhat over a year ago when she procured an appointment from Gov. Budd as a flotary public at Fresno ,as she was the only feminine holder of such an Office in that portion of the state. When she set up her desk, howevex-, and began to reap a golden harvest by administering oaths and affixing seals, they changed their opinions and ad­ mired her pluck.
