THE EVIL STAR.
A bloody star seems to be' in the as
cendancy. ; It is an era of destruction
and combatlveness. By some malign in
fluence the people of earth seem to have
been suddenly converted into a race of
Ishmaelitea, with every man's band
raised against his brother. Nor is the
strife confined to conflicts between the
lawless and the u pholders of the law.

the country. The strikers and the local
police authorities are slaying each other
in the mining districts. Turbulence and
violence prevail in ' all the European
countries where the presence of stand
ing armies is hot sufficient to quell the
insurrectionary spirit. Individuals who
have no provocation to qnarrel with
others shoot themselves. Suicides are
the-order of the day. And thus wher;
ever we look we see the same general
manifestation of combativeness and de
struction. Astrologers attribute it to
the malign influence of. some evil star;
Bible students say it is the sign of the
approaching end of the world ; partisan
politicians, lay it all to the policies of the
opposition party; tho populists hold the
Wall-street goldbugs responsible; the
Oregon republicans say that Pennoyer
did it with his Christmas letter; and so
it goes, everyone with a theory and none
of them able to give a rational explan
ation. For our . own part, we believe it
all results from the inherent cussedncss
of human nature. Human depravity is
the evil star now in : the ascendancy.

Friday, May 11th The general com
plexion of trade and condition of the
market has undergone no perceptible
change since our last report. There
eems to be a shrinking tendency of
values of merchandise and produce.
While the market is not materially over
supplied with any one product, there is
a disposition on the part of purchasers
to buv in small quantities and make
their transactions- limited and on a
Tho produce market is weak. Butter
for shipment will not bear over 25 cents
per roll, and for home consumption not
to exceed o5o 40 cents, and that price
only depends on the desire to get gilt
The poultry market is dull and former
quotations are. adhered to by local
The grain market is as lifeless as ever,
and has no encouraging outlook. East
ern advices indicate a lower quotation
han ever known. Some writers on the
grain situation are pessimistic enough to
say that future wheat values will be on
the minimum scale, and that in ' all
probability breadstuff's will approximate
the days of Queen Mary in price, and
history repeats itself the world may
be nearing a-criaia in eatables, when
300 years ago SI would buy as much as
f5 will now. ' :
The wool receipts have been liberal
uring the week, which has been put on
storage.- There are several buyers in
the city, but so far we have heard of but
two sales being made, and those were on
the basis' of free wool, i. 'e., 7 and 7
cents per pound. The quotation of wool
bags' continues steady, with a fair sup
ply on hand. . i

JONES' SNAKE-KILLING PIGS.
The Farmer Trained. His Raxorbacka to
Exterminate Sorpents. -
."Talk about snakes," said a resident
of Boston the other day, "there are
more of 'em to the square acre in Flor
ida than in any other part of this glori
ous country.' But as numerous as they
are they are not half as abundant as
they were a few years ago, before any
orsranized effort : was -made to annihi
late the whole serpentine breed. . -
It seems th at a bright idea involving-
the wholesale extinction of snakes en
tered the mind of one William Jones,
who up to that time had : been a poor
farmer struggling to support a big f am-
ilv.- Now he is one - of the solid men of
the county, and he made all his money.
by ' the successful execution of that
idea. . He knew that the . ordinary
razorback hog of Florida was . a .jfrcat
natural enemy of snakes, and he Bet to
work to systematically train a whole ;
drove of hogs to hunt down and de
stroy the reptiles. ..-In a little while he:
had. his swine as, thoroughly trained in
their part as setter dogs are drilled to
point iquail. He -first cleared his own
farm of a vq.st quantity of big ones,
and then he began to hire out his hogs
to his neighbors who were snakc-ai-
flicted: ! The fame of those razorbacks
spread all over the land and' people
whose places were" infested with rat
tlesnakes and men who were clearing
up new land sent for Jones' hogs.
"This is no romance,lor l talKed witn
Jones himself and he told me all about
it, and exhibited' his book of engage
ments, which also contained a record
of all the shakes slain for the last
twelve .months. '' I have every reason
to believe he was stating the facts, for
he gave me a warm.-invitation to visit
his place and promises to give an ex
hibition that, would demonstrate tne
skill of his snaVc-killers." -
