The PEERLESS Refrigerator 3^-A.3STTJF,^.OTXJR.EJ3D BYI The Hutchinson Manufacturing Company, HUTCHINSON, KANSAS. .A. wr ..." We herewith show you a few styles of our Refrigerators, and this advertisement will continue but for a short time, it will be well for you to make a note of this after reading, so that if you are not ready to purchase at once you will remember us when you are ready to look into the merits of the Peerless. You are well aware that it costs money to make honest goods, ard as long as the Hutchinson Manufacturing Company make Refrigerators they will be made that way, and if in course of time we find that our business is not appreciated we will discontinue to manufacture them, as we propose to make the best or none. So far our sales have been beyond our expectations, so much so that we are making a larger number now than at any previous time. Yoa will hear this Patent Refrigerator spoken of, and that wilh rerooveable lining, etc., so as to be cleaned. Use common sense in constructing a Refrigerator, get a pure air circulation and let the impurieties be carried off in the waste water, and you will not have to keep your Refrigerator in the back alleys for fear that people will conclude on coming in the house that you have started a tannery on your premises. We have made several improvements to our Refrigerator this year, and expect to do so from time to time, as we feel confident that they are second to none, and for the benefit of some of our competitors making claims we still have confidence to offer the following on the PeerlesB: 33tW.". We will donate any charitable institution $50.00 if there is a better Refrigerator than the PEERLESS in the market to-day, and $50.00 to the party who can produce it. The qualities to be based on the economical use of ice, cleanliness and the preserving qualities of whatever is placed in;the provision chnmber.   As mouey talks it is useless to say more.

It* tail in half a* long *s iu liody, thick at the base, running to a sharp point and crusted with a suvvliko row of bouy Miales. The nholl of a Mmpping turtle rt�embleu wit no curious tablet of Egyptian hlBroglypliiiw. When angered, and it become* furious on the iriixhUxit provocation, the Miapuer lines erect on its powerful legs aud, wilh its loug neck extended to its full leugth, Its tail straightened out like ait alligator's and its yellow oyes glowing, it approaches theobjectof its rage byuivugo .iumpu, drawing it* neck buck into iu shell uudbUoot* ing it out again with lightning rapidity when within tanking distuueo. The snapping turtle in uu awkward pedes-triau, but In the water he is us quick as a flash. The wary and agile trout is no match for the great amphibian, and no enemy of the trout is more persistent and destructive. The snapper lieu in wait beneath, the surface of |x>iids and streams, where uquatic fowl*, especially geeso uud ducks, with their fat aud downy youug, are apt to swim, uud, coming up uud or the unsuspecting prey as fleet uud silent as a shadow, seizes it with one snap of his jaws, aud the premature duck or guoao disappears beneath the surface liku a stouu drop|h er's ujetlt. One old Bus-quchiiunA rivei- hunter told mo once that he filiot a wdfMj one day that fell into tho water iu a bunch of flags. His dog, a small cocker bpauiei, jumped iu to retrevo tho bird. The kUv^ had no sooner got into the water than tbo hunter heard a great commotion and then picrein;; yelU from his dog. Uo waded out to the weeds, and there saw his dog struggling to ^ft away from a big snappiug turtlo that had seized tho dog back of tho fore shoulder, Tito hunter grasped his dog by the hind legs and drew him back. The turtle did not let go his hold- they never do until they are killed, and oven then they don't-aud was dragged clear out on dry land, while the dog lllK'd the air with his yells. Tho hunter placed the muzzle of his gun to the turtle's neck and fillet it with a chorgobf shot. That disposed of the turtlo, but did not compel the turtle to tiL-pense with the dog, the jaws remaining tightly closed on the dog's leg. Tho owner of the spaniel was obUgod to split the tenacious head Iu two before ho could recov-Cf full po^-es.->iou of his dog. ItALSING A FAMILY. Tho Hiuipp-iT \\iw iu homo in Htreams and pundit, livery l'eiualo lays at least twonty egg*, but i)i"V will lay as many as thirty. She g'-easomc di-itauco from tho water when she get;i ready to deposit her eggs, which ahe tloe.s along about the middle of June. She digs a perpeinlicular hole a foot deep, and lag enough for her to get into and complete her nest building, which she does by excuvoting a lateral tunnel from the bottom of the surface hole. This tunnel will be a foot or so loug. if she gels her nest completed in the forenoon of the dny she commenced it, she will lay her eggs iu the tuuuel right away; but if it i-s afternoon when the nest is ready she goes back to her retreat in the water and waits until tho next day. fcShe always deposits her eggs iu the forenoon. Bhe is particular nbout her uetst, too, for soma reason, an! will frequently dig three or four holes before the gets one to suit her. After her eggs are laid she covers them and fills the hole up with dirt and smooths the surface down with great care. Tho eggs hatch in ten duys, uud the turtleta at unco dig their way out of the ground and start for the water as fast as their little lega will carry them, which is at the rate of about a milu an hour. Tlie snapping turtle, uulike the terrapin, Is at Its be*t duriug the summer months, although it is always in demand while bilker-iiatmg. Tho snappers burrow tu the ground in November, anil remain there until April. They ure caught iu large numbers iu central Pennsylvania, and iu the western part of the state by men uud boys who fish or hunt for thcui systematically, and make mouey at it, as there is always a ready market for uiuppers in lenuxvlvuiiia small towns and cities, us wull as in Philadelphia. They are caught by suiting out line* hi btrcams aud pouds aud by "poling" for them. The snapper find/ luuskrai holes convenient retreats, aud whenever tho turtle hunter runs across a inuakrat's home-or what was a muskrat1* home, for the snapping turtle occupy lug a burrow first cuts iU inmate*- he & tolerably sure of getting one or more snappers, lie tuts a long pole, with u strong irou hook ou one euu. That end he jab* down into themuskrut hole. If tb< re is u snapper there the hunter will quietly know it, fur the snapper will resent the intruiJuti of the polo and fusteu his jaws ou the pole or hook, and will hold ou until drawn out. The hook is on the polo for use in caj,o tho turtle does uot permit himself to be nullud out by the jaws, uud then the hunt-tar jerks it into the snapper's leg or aeck and hauls him out.-Mow York ftun.

In the summer, and much more in the autumn, when the summer sun has been blazing upon tho snows and ice of thouplauds for three uctlvo months, it is only among the heights that one may look for those traces of a wintry' temperature which are so dear to us iu the holiday season. One must climb for hours to got to the snow line, and even then, at an altitude of several thousand feet, the rock comes through the snow, aud the thaw Is constant, while the daylight Hngers. ki winter, on tho othor hand, tho harmony is complete. There is then snow everywhere. The nu* Is dollciously keen and invigorating, alike in tho valleys and on the hil!? mis, and brisk movement Is at tho same timo a pleasure and a necessity.

Some oue sees u snow spray upon a slope, and a few snowballs rolling down towards us. But though there is no present peril of this kiud, the high piles of the snow by the metals tell of the possibilities that wait even upon railway traveling in the Aljis during winter time.

In his autobiography in The Century Joseph Jefferson, the comedian, refers incidentally to an early experience in Springfield, Ills., where his father aud partner, anticipating big business during a session of the legislature, built a theatre. At the time there wus u religious revival lit tho town, aud through influence from this quarter u license, which was to all intents and purposes prohibitory, was imposed upon the struggling hist Hons. They wero iu doxpoir, but in tho midst of it there came to them a young lawyer, who said he recognized the injustice of the exorbitant tax and would agree to appear for them before tho council without a foe. He did this and he traced the growth of the druma from the earliest ages, interspersing his talk with side splitting antedotea. The council was captured aud the obuoxioui license law won ropealed. Later on the young lawyer gained some prominence in politics and national affairs, and now there la a monument to his memory near Springfield's pub-buildings. His name, by the way, was fbraham Lincoln.
