The reply says, as the United States is the largest purchaser of silver in the world, the Secretary of the Treaaury after an examination of the offers and quotations each day should determine what in his judgment is a fair price. He either has to purchase 4.500,000 ounces at the dealers' prices, no matter how un reasonable or exorbitant, or he must era ploy such means as are at his command to ascertain the actual market price. The effort of the department since June 12 has been to simply ascertain the fair market price of bullion each dav it was offered for sale, and when ascertained to make purchases at that price.

When she wishes to void excrement she must arch her back. The position of the board prevents her; so she steps back to get into the position nature requires, and the excrement falls in the gutter or offset, far enough away to permit her lying down in the clean stall.

The Homestead thinks farmers will not allow the Poultry to be slivhted. as they realize more fully what can be made out of it, and recalls the instance of a small farmer who became converted to poultry farming by an experiment wishing to adopt only those branches of farming that pay him the best, he kept a ledger account of all his crops vege tables, grain, hogs, cows, poultry. lie kept this np three years, and then set tled down to poultry as the best crop. His farm pays better to-day on ten acres than any 100 in the neighborhood.

At least that's the way he appeared to the editor as that gentleman raised his eyes from his work to tee what it was shuffling across the floor toward his desk. "Good morning," said the visitor. "Good morning," responded the editor. "You are the editor." said the visitor inquiringly, half in doubt "Yes, I know yon are. I can always tell an editor by his intellectual expression. I have here, sir, an article for the press." "Prose or poetry? queried the editor. not regarding the flattery. "Both, sir; combination effort, I may say." "Ah, yon must be a genius?" "Well, sir," and the visitor plumed himself, "I am considered by my friends Napoleon of literature, sir." The editor didn't like that a little bit "Urn," he said, looking him over.
