8ai.ku, July 27.
The Butlcvlllo hop growers met re
cently and decided to pay not over 40
cts. a box for picking this season.
An Independence correspondent
says: Last year there were about 350
acres in hops In Polk canty, and this
year it will reach over 1000 acres. As
au illustration of the money made in
this business may be taken J. H. Ben
ton, living near this city. With only
a few hundred dollars as capital, a few
years ago he planted hopyurds on
shares. Last year he was $4000 in debt,
but paid it all from his crop and bad
nearly $2000 left. This year he has
forty acres in hops, which will proba
bly net him $8000; also 100 acres in po
tatoes, fifty acres in wheat, twenty
In hay and thirty acres In oats, and all
on rented land. A poor man has a
chance to get rich in Oregon.
THE TAPIR FOLLOWING THE BUFFALO
A Mexican Animal That Is Delng Hunted
Out or CxUtenco.
A very striking type of Mexican
zoology, the tapir (Tapirua terrestris
or Tapirua Americanufl), is found in
goodly numbers m tho densely wood
ed river bottoms of southern or trop
ical Mexico. This is a hoofed mam
mal, allied to the swine, yot of a sub
order more nearly representing the
rhinoceros. The tapir is about 4 feet
long, of a blackish color when grown.
With a grotesque head, very high
polled and extremely flexible snoutv
four small anterior and three poste
rior hoofs. Its flesh is very savory,
and its hide makes most serviceable
leather, so that it is largely hunted.
It does not attack humans save
when driven to bay, when it becomes
flerco and stubborn and inflicts se
vere wounds with its teeth. On dogh
especinlly it takes savage vengeance
when at bay. Thfl jaguar is a deadly
foe of this animaL When Felis ouca
hungers for tapir pork and jumps on
the back of some hapless specimen
the only defense that victim makos
is to dash through tho jungle in an
effort to brush tho jaguar off agaius;
the undergrowth or else plunge into
a Btream or pool, for the feline is nt
.liver, while the tapir is a great watei
lover and almost amphibious. Thi
tapir is of nocturnal habits and it
jreat traveler. It feeds on young
oranches antl twigs, fruits, gourds,
melons, water cabbage, otc. Its voice,
which Beldom is heard, is a curious
Its gentle nature makes it easily
tamable, in fact too tamable, for Its
affection takes the form of antics
and gambols, whoso familiarity is
discomposing as from a clumsy, lum
boring creaturo as big as a donkey.
Although still plentiful, tapirs aro
far less numerous now than they
wore a few years since owing to tho
eagerness with which they aro hunt
ed. Not only are tho numbers di
tninished, but they have grown shy
and wary, retreating before rutin's
approach into tho more- inaccessible
districts and nooks. Great Divide.
The I'oitnre of tho Ilody.
The position of tho body In our
daily occupations has a very decided
effect upon the health. Those who
lean over the desk to write or study
aro invariably round shouldered, and
eventually weak lungs sot in. An
other common position is to bend
forward continually, but to keep the
shoulders erect and thrown back
ward and the lungs in a position so
as to work well. This position might
bo called tho favorite one of man
kind now that attention has so fre
quently been called to tho danger of
leaning over But this position
should bo deprecated as harmful in
its results. It is not tho natural po
sition of tho body, and some of tho
internal organs receive a daily strain
that will oventually weaken them.
The position that best maintains
tho symmetry of the body is that in
which tho spinal column balances
upon the pelvis, with head erect, and
tho arms at tho Bide when possible.
This posture can boon bo made a sec
ond nature to those working in the
schoolroom, the workshop, or in rid
Ing. A litUo training would make
the person drop naturally into the
position, and his health would be
greatly improved thereby an well as
the erectnosB and symmetry of tho
form. Yankee Blade.
