jpcclsl to the Scranton Tribune.
Susquehanna, Aus. 10. In common
with many of his neighbors, Farmer
Conrad, of Glemvood, three years ago
Indulged In the popular fad of estab
lishing a carp pond upon his farm, and
he waited with feverish anxiety for the
glad hour when ho could take a hoe
and go out whenever he was a little
moist and dig up a ton-pound carp.
Farmer Conrad's most sanguine hopes
were more than fully realized, and the
family just revelled in carp. They had
carp for breakfast, dinner and supper,
and cold carp for luncheon. The llsh
were so numerous that the family cat
used to drag big ones from the pond up
through the meadow to the housn.
But the family eventually became
surfeited, and carp gave way to bone
less liver upon the bill of fare. It
dawned upon Farmer Conrad that he
had bought a gold brick. He was get
ting more quantity than quality.
He stopped feeding the fish and
gradually drained the pond. The dis
carded fish took refuge in a swamp be
low the pond, and made nightly incur
sions upon the vicinity fields for food,
after, denuding the swamp of vegetable
On Saturday night thousands of the
carp loft the swamp, ascended a bluff,
and fell upon an acre natch of early
rose1 potatoes, stripping every vine and
leaving the lot as barren as the Sahara
desert. The famished fish gorged them
selves 'and were unable to return to the
swamp. They fell into a deep and pro
found sleep.
On Sunday morning, while Farmer
Conrad and his hired man were search
ing for a lost cow, they discovered the
wrecked field and the, snoring carp.
Farmer Conrad sat upon a. rail fence,
cried tears and said things. Then the
men grasped clubs and fell upon the
carp, slaying them all. Not a fish in
all the field escaped the terrible massa
cre. Then the tired men resumed cow
hunting. Farmer Conrnd had lost an
acre of potatoes and gained four tons
of excellent fertilizer. There is no great
loss without some little gain.

At Conklln Forks on Sunday evening
there was an umjsual scene in the little
cross' roads church. As the organist
was playing n prelude she chanced to
look into the little mirror above her,
and she was horrified to see a largo
snake uncoil itself and crawl forth from
the music rack.
The organist promtly fainted and slip
was carried to the parsonage, where she
soon revived. Several of the braver
members of the congregation attacked
the snake and soon killed it.
It was a blacksnake, and measured
elx feet in length. It evidently crawl

When it is once understood that gold
fish are useful, as well as ornamental

"My kidneys and liver were In bad

Its merit. The best proof that It has
