Logansport Journal (Newspaper) - November 19, 1890, Logansport, Indiana n only one 3x fafull rnpst to cut for or to Insist on the QENUINE wift red H tin tag made only by THE LOGAN STONE Stock so rerfectly rosdl That Touch Will Set It Itoultiiijc The Logan Stone is near Ienzance in Mounts Bay Cornwall England about eleven miles from Lands End This famous stone rises on i he summit of a bold promontory of unite which ex tends some distance out in the bay It is believed to weigh ninety tons and yet it is so perfectly poised whore it stands tnnt a touch can sot it rocking It rests by its center only on a flat broad rock the lower rock resting on several others that stretch around it on all sides Tho pivot on which the Lo gan etona is so easily moved is a small prolusion on its base on all sides of which tho whole surrounding weight of is by accident of nature so exactly equalized as to keep the enormous mass poised on this little neck In 1824 Lieutenant Goldsmith an oflicor of the royal navy was told of an ancient prophecy that no human power could ever succeed in overturning tho Logan Stone He laid a wager that he could do It in spite of the prophecy He went to the point with a half dozen men and as many levers These levers he had placed under the stone at one side and at the word heave the great stono was thrown from its pinnacle In fall ing the stone was caught in a crevice in the rock The people of Penzance were very indignant at this desecration of their ancient landmark and tho Admir alty commanded the Lieutenant to put the stohQ back The young man did so but it was a very difficult and expensive task It by means of beams ropes and pulleys a large number of workmen were needed and it took them a week to get the work done The Lieutenant had to pay for it all It took him several years for he was poor and without friends andhis health gave way in the last effort so that he bad no sooner made the last payment than he died The poise of the rock is taid to be less perfect since it was moved than InterOcean railway accident had been a torriblo one and one of the men who were carrying the thirtyseventh victim up the embnnkment said with strong feeling

but I lowed that I couldnt sieop with tho pitiful cry of that lamb aringin in my ears so I took my lantern an went down into tho val ley The snow was whirlin so fast that I could hardly see whar I was goin but at last comin nearer an nearer to tho bleatin i at last found a little lamb with his head stickin out of a snow drift I took him out his legs wero frozen still as sticks I took him to tho houso an warmed him by the a bot tle of milk an fixed it so he could suck I built up a good fire so he wouldnt get cold durin the night an every time ho would bleat I would git up an fix his bottle The weather staid cold for a long time an once when tho old cow got out of the lot an wandered off an didnt como up in time to give milk for the lamb I searched for her on the mountain side an way

his eyes was I never will forgit you Wall to make a long story short I brought up that lamb till ho was as fine a sheep as you ever saw an in every look out of his eyes he said that ho never would

before I could git up an then ho followed mo to the fence achurnin mo every jump the tickoledl Wy I never saw a ram enjoy himself so in my life Well when I got home I sot down anthought a longtime about the ingratitude of this life an then I thought I would teach that rasoal a losson so I got my gun and went back down in to the woods I hold tho gun behind me an poked about Putty soon I saw Hob an ho1 saw mo about tho same time he como I didnt say a word Ho was so tickeled that lip thought hod stop an laugh a little before biflin me an he stopped an snorled nith delight an jest then I ups

the position that a ministers wife must have You look at it simply as an exchange of a ministers social position for the wealth which a woman would bring Such bartering is not honorable It hurts tho

latter appear in overwhelming numbers bids fair to revolutionize tho practice medicine Already an eminent physi cian has declared that in the future the aim of the medical man will bo to strengthen tho muscles constitution and appetite of the phagocytes so that they will be able to kill and eat a greater number of bacteria than now satisfies their wants and ho maintains that by kind and judicious treatment the efficiency of the phlagecytes can be greatly increased But has he not for gotten the lesson so often taught by the domestic cat It is her business to kill and eat the micethatinfesthermasters house but if she is treated with injudi cious kindness and fed with good food she disdains to sully her paw with mice and spends time sleeping on the hearth rug If our phagocytes are treated too well may they not prove as unprincipled as cats and allow our systems to be over run with all sorts of bacteria Herr Juenemanns asphyxia to ry shells which can render a

burning tho old and dead leaves of strawberry plantations when it is intended for them to bear another crop One successful strawberry raiser states that tho plants grow up again sooner and with vigor aflsr the burning He thinks it causes tho soil to mellow up anil hold moisture bet ter where it has been trodden by pick ers and weed seeds and insects are de stroyed llalfrotied straw was used as a mulch and all this rubbish was hand Bomely cleared off No immediate cul tivation was required But other culti vators object to the practice believing that the fire checks the future growth and that the benefit derived from the ashes is not equal to that obtained from the decaying vegetable matter There is no doubt that the success of burning depends much on the condition of the crop a moist soil being less affected than a light and dry one with the roots near the surface and a continued burn Ing proving more injurious than a tem porary sweep of the fire by a wind The amount or dry rubbish
