The Southern Farm Gazette, pub- fished at Starkville, gives some interest- ing figures on the profits to be made in cattle grazing in Mississippi. The Gazette takes as a fair example an in- stance which fell under its own obser- vation during the present season m Oktibbeha county. The Gazette says D. A. Saunders, of Starkville, put into a 40-acre pasture on June 17th last thirty-four "Florida scrub steers," averaging 57,  pounds per head. On the 18th of October he sold them to J. llalbert at 21 cents per pound. Dar- ing this period the steers ffaiued 195 pounds per head, making a profit of $4.87 cents per steer, or $165.50 on the purchase, thus paying a rental of over $4 per acre for f(')ur months' grazing. "Considering that the steers were Florida scrubs, the result should be considered highly satisfactory. Well- bred cattle would have made probably 800 pounds per head and been worth 4 cents instead of r.3" cents. The pasture was good. composed of a variety of grasses, melilotus predominati'ng. & Dmlnken I)etnon, Will Rutlan last week met Tom Ell- zcy and his 14-yea.-old son, who were raeious; what vengeance he will be returning borne from Wesson, after ab|e to wreak," "1 don't see where the vengeance is tc having" sold a load of wood, and, pull- lne in."

Peenllar Phase of Lunacy li| Developed During a Trial in Court. "That calls to mind a queer experience of m " ' y own, sad a lawyer who had hstened to the story. "Some years ago I defended a fellow for murder in a little southern town. and the worst witness we had against us was an old German who was a stackbuitder by trade. A stack, by the way, is merely another name for a big chimney. The old fellow was perfectly honest, and gave his evidence in such a'elear, straightforward manner that [ felt mx client was doomed unless I could think o-f some way to break him down. While I was cudgeling my brains a friend whispered to me to ask him how high he could build a stack. 'What do you mean?' I asked, in sur- prise, Never mind,' said my friend, 'just slip in that question and see.' So at the tail end f the cross-examinatlon I paused as if struck by an afterthousht, and said.: 'ou are a stackbuilder, I behove?  'Yea sir/re. plied the witness. 'Well, sir,' I continued, 'about how high couldyou bulld--' I never got an)" further. A swift, inscrutable change flashed over the German's face, and he rose excitedly from his chair. 'As high as der sky!' hd roared. 'So high dose angels come around it like birds!' In five seconds he wan ravig. You see, the man was a mono- maniac--sane on every subject but one, and my friend happened to know his weak spot. It is hardly necessary to say that his evi- dence in regard to the homicide was prompt- ly ruled out by the judge, and as there was no other witness of importance my man was cleared. The rascal should have been hanged, and. would have been but for the luck ref- erence to the stack."--N. O. Times-Demo- crat. SCIFNTIFIC CONSCIENCE. An Intettlng Tale of q[vo Groin- gists und an Exceedingly 1]eautifuI Fossil. Happening to know two men who were deeply interested in geology and who did not know each other a Detroit man brought the two scientists together recently at the house of one of them and then left them to enjoy the occasion. A day or two later he met the host in the case and heard this strange story from him: "Well, Mr.Cooper, that was a fine man ou brought out to see me the other night--a ne man. Why, he's as crazy about geology as I am, if not a trifle crazier. We sat up to- gether until after'midnight, looking over my specimens and talking about them, and l'm oing down to see his cases. He tells me he as almost bankrupted himself indulging his taste for rare and beautiful fossils. A funny thing happened the other night, too; he's a great one--that man! On my library table 1 had one remarkably beautiful fossil  too choice to be hidden away in a ease and yet too valuable to be left lying around. I needn't tell you what it was, for you don't know one from another. Your friend does, however, and he retm'ned again and again to admire this particular specimen. Of course, I enjoyed his enthusiastic apprecia- tion of it, and when he was about to goI said: 'Mr. Badger, you admired this fossil so much I'm going to give myself the pleasure of part- ing with it to you. "Please add it to your col- lection.' So saying, I extended my hand for the fossil, and behold it wasn't there. On the table and under the table I looked, behind the lamp, and under papers--no fos- sii--a mystermus disappearance. I felt non- plussed and looked at my guest. He looked sheepish, fumbled in the inside of his sacque coat and said: 'Well, I'mglad you are going to give me that fossil. I already had it in my pocket.' " "As I had often done the same trick my- se/f l cmddn't utter a word of protest. " 'Well, well,' I said, 'take it along and heartily welcome.' 'Tve annexed fossils myself.

After a ten days' fight to avoid death, the crew of a steamer from Spain recently ar- rived ih Baltimore. in midocean it was dis- coveretl that flames were raging in the ves- sel's hold. For ten lcngday,s the crew brave- ly fought the flames. If men would fight as persistently against disorders of the stomach and digestive organs, there would be fewer premature deaths.

There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is ,aused by an inflamed condition of the mu- cous llrdng of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation cau be taken out and this tube restored to its normal con- dition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases of of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the surfaces.
