Jacoii Higoinh, a woll-knowa
farmer, hung himself to a tree in the
-woods, iv short distanco from his
residence, near Hixson Station, Tcnn.
Ho had recently lout his wife. Ho

no relatives to care for them.
Thk extraction of camphor from tho
tree totally destroys its growth, and it
was owing to this fact that the custom
once prevailed in Japan that when a
person removes tho camphor another
tree was immediately planted in the

had lceii remoud.
A Prrrsitouo mechanical engineer

Exi'KUiments have proved that the
tensile strength of r wet rope is only
one-third that of the same rope when
dry, and a rope saturated with greaso
or soap is weaker still, as the lubiicant
pormitd tho libers to slip with greater
facility. Hemp ropo contracts strong
ly on being wet, and a dry ropo twenty
iivo feet long will shorten to twenty
four on being wet.
It is proposed to preserve fish alive
by placing them in vessels filled with
water and hermetically nealed. It is
said that fish so confined have been
found alivo after three weeks, without
either air or water having been
changed, whilo fish in an open jar
died in forty-eight hours. If tho air
in tho vessel is compressed tho life of
tho fish is Btill further prolonged.
Pkom studies upon tho relation
which I ho annual rings bear to tho
ago of trees it has been concluded
that thoy aio only an approxima
tive and not certainly correct index
of age. Any agency opt rating to pro
duce alternate periods of rest and ac
tivity in tho growth of tho trees sorves
to determine their formation. In
cold climates tho number of rings
more nearly serves to indicate tho ago
of tho trees than in warm climates.
A vkw weeks ago a citizen of Thorp,

A' first one teat will milk harder than
the rest, and gets worse until scarce a
drop can be got from it. The quarter
of tho bag it represents is hard and
swoolen. He lets the teat thus affected
alone for four days, rubbing on linseed
oil twice a day, giving the cow five
drops of aconite, on an ear of corn,
night and morning, and not giving tho
cow a full grain ration during this
time. Ho milks on the fifth day, and
generally has no trouble. If it begins
to milk bird again give another rest
and there is no trouble afterwards.
This is a simple way of treating a
troublesome complaint, and at this
time of the year there may be many
persons who will be glad to know how
to treat it.
