I have recently returned from a trip to Northern Illinois, where, among other objects of interest, I visited a county devoted chiefly to the production of butter and cheese. I was so thor oughly impressed with the idea that this was fust the business for our farmers, as well as to the interest of our town, that I concluded then and there to make tho effort, upon my arrival at home, to impress our farmers with this fact. The factories which I visited are located in a town of about 2,000 inhab itants. The lands adjacent to the town are, like ours, best adapted to the pro duction of corn, oats and grass, but not so good grass lands as ours. The num ber of cows kept by each farmer is lim ited only by the capacity of the farm to sustain them. No other stock, except work horses and a few pigs, are kept. The pigs are fed ...

It is the polite thing in Germany 'when a person sneezes to salute him or her with the words "Gate gesundhcit" (good health). The same custom pre vails in Belgium. A big two-fisted school teacher in Fond dn Lac County, Wis., so cruelly beat an 8-year-old pupil the other day for not mastering a hard sum in frac tions, that he was fined $25 and costs by a humane Justice of the Peace. The Kussians are peculiar. When coflins are covered with cloth, the color indicates the character of the deceased. If the body is a young person, crimson is used; if a widow, brown; if a father, yellow; but black is never used.
