The attorney general of South
Carolina has just made a ruling rel
ative to what the site of a grave
yard may be. He says the size is
not limited by law, and may be a
mile square or more. The land must
not be held for any other purpose
than as a burial place, and the
grave yard must not be held with
a view to profit or speculation. The
oase came up in the matter of the
seizure of the old Maveriok planta
tion graveyard,- in Piokens county,
for back taxes.

994,225 oxen and other cattle; 29,
114,453 sheep, and 38,661,311 swine.
These figures show a decrease of
295,604 in the number of horses,
66,069 in that of mules, 1,268,872
in tbat ' of oxen and other cattle,
and 1,108,362 in that of swine. On

The great drawback in Porto
Rico is a lack of roads. There is
uiily one good road on the island,
and that is the military road ex
tending from San Juan to Ponce, a
distance of about 80 miles. This
road is described as a marvel of
engineering skill and one of the
best rouds to be found in the world
Other parts of the island are trav'
ersed by bridle paths or narrow
roads in miserable condition. The

treasury department the war with
Spain Bince the outbreak of hostili

The civil war cost $3,065,413,425,
or an average of $1,685,156 a day.
The largest amount paid out during
a single day in the Spanish-A men-
can war was $4,110,000. This was
just before Spain sued for peace.
The next highest expenditures were
$3,775,000. ' The dally expense of
the war frequently, rose above $3,
000,000. The highest daily expen
diture was sullicient to construct
and equip a battle'hip of the size
of the ill-fated Maine.
The thirty-two cattlemen who
were acquitted of the murder of a
sbeepherder in Fall River County,
South Dakota,, the other day, cer
tainly showed their gallantry to the
widow and orphana of their viotim
in a substantial way, if it did take
thirty-two of them to kill the man,
in self deiense. The poor woman
stood shivering at the entrance to
her hut when she saw a cavalcade
of her husband's killers ride up to
her. She expected to meet even a
worse 1 fate than death, but was
amazed when the leader thus ac
costed hur: "Mrs. Ekman, we have
come to make you a little Christ
mas present. We shot your hus
band, but it was in self defense.
We know you are without funds.
We would gladly restore your hus
band, Lul that is impossible, so we
do the next best thing give you
the means to support yourself and
children. If you need more call on
us," and he handed her a bag con
taining $1000 in gold. The plains
men : raised their hats, mounted
tneir horses arid rode away .! The
aot was ; commendable, and how
seldom are such oases recorded.

"The chief product of these islands

The La Qrippe and Sulphur.
In my daily papers of December
22d I find that there are supposed .
to be something like 100,000 cases
of la grippe in New York City, and
it is also prevailing largely in Wash-'
ington, Philadelphia and other cities-
and is now threatening Boston. It
is a fact that when it was prevail
ing as an epidemic largely in. our
city a. few years ago, I ascertained, .
by inquiry of my officers at "Byam's
Match Factory," that of the forty-'
three persons employed'- there i not
one bad. been troubled by it. I
have at various times told the press, ,
how' many at Memphis, Tennessee, t -including'
the agents of "The How-'
ard Benevolent Association" ee-'-caped
the terrible epidemic 01 yel
low fever there as they, claimed JtJ
by wearing, powdered Sulphur in
their shoes also the evidence of a ,
distinguished ' derman medical
writer translated into English, that ''
wearing sulphur in this way has '
proved a complete protection against
cholera and, other epidemic diseast s -also
that ' those working the sul
phur mines of Italy escape the ma
laria whioh prevails all about them
also that sulphur' in the shoes -has
cured various cases of rheuma- '
