7 ' AGRICULTURAL HINTS, REFORM MUST COME, Good Road, Considered la the UfU at ClvUlaer. Modern taste will not fro back to old, systems of country lirintr. The backwoods will do for adventure, or In which to fell the timber for farms, or till the virgin plains, but the country as a whole wants more of country air in the cities, and of city comforts in the country, and the good road is the clviiiier that will soonest make ' this interchange of blessings possible. When the country was new and the cities small, culture pioneered, charmed with the glory awaiting success. Cities like magie grew, and the farmer became the banker and remained the fanner still. He was a legislator and a farmer still; bnt the country dis trict has not kept pace with the city development, chiefly from the want of good roads, and the country can easily account for loss in population and in caliber as to culture, while the cities acquire the best the country affords. A good road means a fine breed of horses and ...

PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. The recent reduction in price of alumimnm has called renewed atten tion to the possibilities of the use of lominium-bronze castings for pur poses in which the strength' of forged Steel without its liability to corrosion are essential. Its price should now be not much above that of ordinary gun bronze.. .every gooa cook is careiui to dis pose at once of the water in which meat has been washed. Only a very few hours are necessary to change it into a foul-smellin; liquid if the tem perature is suitable. This change is due to a little plant called bacterium termo. A drop of this putrid material under the microscope reveals many thousands of them, acting under a pecu liar vibratile motion. Queen Victoria speaks ten lan guages fluently.

Somebody once spoke in his hearing of the satisfaction men derive from fame. " 'Fame!' echoed Mr. Waterson. 'I never hear the word that I do not think of Daniel Webster's story of the time he met an old gentleman in a railway car, and learning that he was from New Hampshire, thought he would draw him out a little about the old home State. A little more con versation showed that the stranger came from Mr. Webster's native town. Here was an opportunity not to be lost.

The lobbyists are in Jefferson City in blocks of five, and the legislators will have to watch their corners or they will be caught The Railway Pooling bill is pretty certain to pass the Senate as it has passed the House, by a good majority. As nothing will then be left of the In terstate Commerce law the Interstate Commerce Commission should bo dis banded and the expenses saved. The bonds sold under the Cleveland and Carlisle regime are advertise ments of the disgraceful tinkering of this Congress and administration. They will b3 paid but every last man connected with the fiasco will lie dis charged from further service unless it be an odd man from back counties who still votes for Jackson. Talk about "the cost of pensions'' to the men who saved the Republic.
