A cilstom obtains in Michigan,
Nebraska, and perhaps other Western
States, which it would do no harm to
introduce in the older States. The
Governors of these States select and
set apart a day each spring, which is
called 'Arbor Day,'on which the peo
ple generally are expected to plant trees
for ornament, protection and shade.
The spirit of emulation thus encourag
ed among the people cannot but result
in the planting of large numbers of trees
and shrubbery, to beautify, benefit and
enrich the respective communities
which observe the practice—a very
commendable one, all will admit. Last
Wednesday was 'Arbor Day' in Nebras
ka, while Thursday, the 28th inst., is
the day hct apart by Gov. Jerome, of
Michigan, for the same purpose.

Railway purchased the line known as
the New Castle and Franklin road, in
cluding miles of track and a large
amount of indebtedness, A number of
purchasers were in the field, and after
sarting at $25,000 the road was knock
ed down to M . TIIOH. P. Simpson for
the road named, for tba -uni of $775,000.
The buyer states that the road will
form part of the line from Buffalo to

this transaction was an advance in the

—The earth's eastward rotation, to
gather with the increase in rate from
t fie poles to the equator, has a tendency
to throw the waters of streams against
their western banks sufficient to pro
duce quite marked effects in mmy
parts of the world. It is noticeable in
large rivers where the deposits are
earthly, and the pitch of the water is
small and in the direction o''the stream,
the bunk against which the water
strikes the more forcibly being high
and steep, while the other is low.
The effect has been observed in many
streams of Europe and Asia, and on the
rivers intersecting the low land of the
Atlantic border of the United Stales.

Secretary YVindom's lirst act as

— NECESSITY is the mother of inven
tion, and as apparent necessity is al
ways calling a small hoy in a direction
exactly opposite to that in which his
parents want him to be, the small boy
i- consequently, inventive. The last
illustration of thi.-s truth has been af
forded by an eight-year-old boy who
was left for n hour or two by his
mother to tak*- care ot a baby sister.
U hat called him awav from his post
ho declined to state, but what he did
before leaving was to fasten the baby's
dress to the floor by two or three -stout
tacks. It stands to reason that, after
being thus eared for, the baby was un
able to clutch u Lerosene lamp as a
plaything, to creep into an oven or to
drum up in the window glass with a
poker. More still, the infant did not
move at all. When the mother return
ed she may have quoted from Casabi
anca, "The; bov, oh, where was he?"
but as for the baby, there she was.
Merely as an example that boj is worth
millions to the country, for among the
things most needed is a being who can
keep other beings in place, so that any
one may be sure of finding them.

—The hibernating Hungarian in the
Allentown l'oorhou e, who has been
sleeping coinforiablv for seventy-two
days without food or drink, woke up
Friday, and after a short time resumed
his slumbers. Saturday he woke again
and felt such a disgust w tli life on his
return to consciousness that he forth

at hand, lie (lid not quite kill himself
but will probably die. Whatever be
comes of him, he has puzzled the phy
sicians more than did the late famous
and now halt-forgotten Dr. Tanner. If
his method of escaping the ills of life
by taking a ten weeks' nap could be
practised by others, what a blessing it
would be to poor people when times
are hard and victuals scarce. A whole
family could go to sleep, except one
member, who would need to stay awake
to look after the premises, answer the
door-bell and tend the fire. It is to In
hoped that this extraordinary Hunga
rian will not sleep the sleep that knows
no waking until he has revealed the
secret ol his long trance. In one of
h<dward Everett Hale's clever stories
a party of whalers came upon an ante
diluvian gi.iiit asleep in a cave in Kamt
ehatka behind a wall of ice, and re.-uc
itated him by pumping oxygen.into his
capacious lungs. The tale is not so
fantastically improbable after all, i n

In imposing sentence upon James

spoke as folows:
The case is one in which the perjury
was of the most dangerous character,
and one which affected the result of
the National election. In imposing
such a heavy sentence for the offense,
I do it to serve as a warning to others
against going upon i lie stand in a

such enormous interests." • Assistant

A Case of Poisoning.
A case of poisoning occurred in Fair
view township, York county, near Lis
burn, Cumberland county, which has
created considerable excitement in the
vicinity. It appears that Michael
Hart, his wife aud daughter had eaten
freely of apple-butter, and were very
shortly after breakfast taken violently
ill, requiring immediate medical at
tendance. The doctor on arriving de
clared that the cases had the character
istics of poisoning. Mr. Hart was re
lieved much sooner than his wife and
daughter, who were very sick, but not
regarded as dangerously so. An ex
amination of the food eaten resulted in
the discovery of poisonous substance in
the apple butler, and when the crock
from which this had been taken was
investigated, it was discovered that
the glazing had peeled oil, and this had
produced the poisoning, having been
eaten with butter. A KJU ol Mr. Hart's
who had not eaten of the apple butter,
was not taken sick, which was regard
ed as still further proof Ujat it was
that which had caused the sickness ol
the lather, mother and daughter. The
ailair caused considerable excitement
in the neighborhood, where Mr. Hart
aud family are very much respected.
