An agricultural exchange quotes pota
toes ns retailing at 25 cents per bushel nnd
goes on to say that last year an unusually
larg crop of potatoes was planted every.
whero throughout, the country mainly be-'
cause of the comparative failure of the
crop for several previous years and in tho
hopo that the good market created thereby
would continue. The scuson proved to be
an exceedingly favorable one, Potatoes
grew strong and rapidly, thero was a
marked freedom from tho ravages of tho
potato bug, and hundreds of bushels wcro
obtained whero tens hud been raised be
fore. Tho result is that thoy are now re
tailing slowly from 25 to 80 cents per bush,
el according to quality, and only execp.
tloiial ones selling at tho price lastj namvd.
Mauy of the farmers hold from pno to three
hundred bushels and somo bavo com.
menced to feed tho potatoes to their hogs,
believing that much more profitable than
selling for cash,
It is altogether llkclyiS ,(l)it tho present
low prlces'wlll lead many to abandon tho
potato as"4,farm"prdduct for this' year at
least. We can hardly advise this course.
It Is true the potato Is an exhaustive crop
to grow, as It returns very llttlo to the soil,
but tho cultivation should not be neglect
ed, though H might be reduced.- Many of
the farmers, discouraged by tho present
low prices, will, of course, ulmost wholly
abandon tho potatoes, and with tho com
parative scarcity this would make next
season's crop likely to bring much bet
ter prices thun now prevail.

Is, that tho right ot way and tics as far us

accomplished, nnd to accomplish It will re
quire some further effort. In tho, next
placo there has been, recently, u depression
in tho stock market, and also a falling off
of revenue to the coal carrying roads
which has discpuraged for a time any In

proper consideration. This last clrctim.

only temporary delay, and tho former, as
an additional cause, can nnd ought to bu

Fearful IVarnliiKH Ak"IiihI Rope
The jumping rope seasqu belpg at present
at Its full height, the little ones aro found
exercising themselves wherever nn oppor
tunity offers. Rope jumping' is not partic
ularly Injurious if indulged In, ns It should
be, moderately. But tho native Instinct of
young America, whether In girl or boy, Is
to overdo the thing, They don't want to
bo left even in tho matter of ropu jumping,
and as somo one Is bound to imitate exam
ples set in other athletic fluids, so each little
girl. circle has Its champlpu whom all tho
rest of tho girls feel bound to Imitate. In
this struggle for supremacy lies the . great
danger of rope jumping. A fearful warn
ing of tho sad results that aro likely to fol
low excessive practice with tho ropo, comes
from Ashland whero three deaths from
ropo jumping havo occurred within tho
past two weeks, tho last victim being;
Keler, uged 11, who died on Saturday front
cuiigcHiiuii ui 1 nu uram caused uy over 111
diligence in tho pastime, l'.t.
Col. Charles G, Iliumnonil was con-
vorsinij 111 Clncaco with two friends.
Ho oxprtwed thu opinion that it wits
better to jlvo to charitable objects tin
ring lift than iy bciiuoHts after one's
duatli. Ho refen ed also tu tho demiso
of a friend, which had occurred recent
ly. Just as lie did so his head dropped
suddenly upon his breast. This was
first interpreted as .1 sign of grief. The
next instant it was seen that lie had
fainted. Help was called, but lie was
dead in five minute.
