a dg run wild. These animals
will proHigate their kind, and to
the cunning of the tame animal
they will add the ferocity of the
wild. Alroady dangerous encoun
ters have occurred. Sheep have
btn slain by them. Cattle wan
dering over the plains and through
the woods have btt-n attacked by
them. 1'artii-s of women engaged
in Urry-picking have been pre
vented from going far from the set
tlements. Men have been attacked
by theiu anJ coinj-elled to take re
fuge in trees. Lately a herdsman
in search of cattle came across a
litter of young pups and was fierce
ly attacked by the mother. Fortu
nately he was armed with a pitch
fork, and after a ucsicrate contest,

SjKUiges were at one time living
animals. Although they have no
nerves, no heart, no lungs, no
mouth and no stomach, yet they
are placed by the naturalists in the
animal kingdom, says an exchange.
Living sponges consist of a jelly
like mass, supported by a frame
work of homy fillers; called spic
ules. This "jelly body" covers all
parts of the framework and decays
immediately after the death of the
sponge. It is this framework, or
skeleton with which we are so fa
miliar. During the life of the
sponge the flesh is said to present
a beautiful appearance, almost all
the colors of the rainbow, dazzling
the eves with their brilliancy.
During ita life the sponge is con
stantly drawing water thmuh its
Hires, and countless streams are
continually flowing through the
oiige, bringing in little particles
of food, and all the air needed to
support it. There is another ele
ment in this wonderful circulation
that should not 1 overlooked.
Located in different parts of these
pores are cup-shaped hollows filled
with thread like particles or "cells"
which are continually in motion,
and assist in keeping the water in
Eve-ivthiniz that lives must
brcthe and out. And it isoneof the
curiosities of nature that an animal
without a mouth or a stoniueho can
eat and digest its food. The circa
latum of the water through the pores
supplies oxygen for breathing at the
same time that it bring little parti
cles of food into contact with differ
ent iKirtions of the sponge. When
tho food touches any part of the
body the soft jelly-like flesh sinks
in so as to form a cup. while the
surrounding parts creep out over
the morsel of food until it is entirely
covered. Here it is held until the
digestible portions are absorbed
when the llcsh assumes its original
position, and any shell or other
rcfuso that remains from the meal
is carried away by tho currents of

"What Bcemii tj lie the matter?"
"I thought I took a mental photo
i graph of the house. I did. hut when
I went to lok fur it I found row on
row of other houses just like myi
photograph which had, I might
add, been a little too instantaneous
to be goo!. I began inquiring; but
I got fired out'o one house, bounced
c-ut'o another, until I got tired, and
concluded that tho whole; town was
so full of bouses that were just like
my wife's boardin' house, that I
"What was the name of the pro

number, don't know anything,
hardly, any more."
'"Your own name?"
"Let me see I've about forgotten
that; but I've got it writ down and
kin tell in a minute."
The bewildered man reached down
in his pocket and drew out a patent
medicine memoranda. "Oh, here
it is," ha said, "and I'll be banged

'N'o you won't, was the reply,
and a smart collection was taken
up and handed the countryman,
the reporter contributing the loan
of his hat. It required a little
pressure to get the amount accept
ed. "Only as a loan," he pretested,
and executed an impromptu note
which he signed, with tears of grat
itude coming out of his eyes, and
'Well, has that fellow worked
that racket on you?" asked Officer
Longworth, who came up a few min
utes after, and heard the story.
'"That's about a dozen times be has
played that dodge, and always slips

"This note we're holding shows
It. SO," was the chorused reply.
Here's five more," replied the
officer, '"from ?3 to tS. Some are

The ingenuity of book agents has

Continuous prevention or any
interference with sleep is the most
far-reaching damage producer to
the human system. Comfort and
contentment are obliterated. Their
attendant substitutes are nervous
irritability, mental anxiety, which
sooner or later according to the ro
nistanc power of the individual,
become idiocy, mania or death,
preceded by a painful physical col
lapittj. It is stated ai a fact that at
lal I.) per cent, of "Wall street"
ojierators arc wretched sleepers and
5 lr cent more are pronounced
victim. of insomnia, who never

benumbing influence of some hyp

alcohol, sulfonal or bromides.
These used in ever increasing quan
tities to produce artificitl sleep
must end bv tho destruction of in
tellectuality. The absence of cor
relation between the brain and the
stomach must be known as a prime
factor in preventing sleep. The
muscle-brawn laborer rests infinitely
better when he geeks his sleep
with a stomach coirparatively em
pty; with him sleep is that oblivion
which bis slow-acting brain awards
the work-strained musck-s. The

The be.-t advice that can be given
to those troubled with insomnia is to
study the stomach and keep it com
paratively full for two purposes.
First, to coax the blood current
away from a flaccid lot of blood
vessels ramifying through every
nook and corner of your brain,
which is too active and loaded with
unnatural fulness. Secondly, the
stomach must contain food in order
to keep up a steady supply of that
always in demand pabulum neces
sary to healthful nutrition, without
which no organ caa thoroughly do

er must always woo sleep with a
full stomach, warm feet, cool head
and quiet heart's action..
Fortunately Oregon climate is to
a great extent a specific for the
evil of sleeplessness, but a careful
observance of the rules here laid
down will doubtless be of benefit

In the matter of dust or earth
baths, says the American Agricul
turalist, fowls much prefer burrowing
in tho earth to wallowing in a shal
low dust-box. One corner of the
poultry-house should be inclosed
and then filled with soft, pulverized,
dry earth to alwut twenty inches
above tne level, of the floor. Have
a small door connecting this with
the poultry-house, and when it is
left open the fowls will walk in and
take a good wallow. All kinds of
poultry especially lovo to dust
themselves when there are indica
Hons of stormy weather.

The Cheese trade between Amer

one. Last year we imported 813,

ted States and OliS.tKX) hundred
weights from Canada, making to
gether 1;4S 1,000 hundred-weights.
and this year tho figures promise
to be as large. This extensive bus
iness is thought to offer a favorable
opportunity for introducing modern
methods of organization, and a
scheme is on foot for tho formafion
of a large corporation for this pur
pose. To put it briefly, the scheme
is intended to bring out a direct
deal between the producer and the
foreign consumer, so as to cut down
unnecessary expenses. While
maintaing a fair margin of profit,
the cost to tho oonsuiiier is to be
reduced. There is said to bo abun-
