LEHMANN, Solicitor of Patentn, Washington, D C, Ko Patent No Pay cud for JltOS Sleep as a Medicine. A physician says that the cry for rest has always been louder than the cry for food Not that it u more important, but it is often harder to obtain. The best rest comes from sound sleep. Of two men or women, otherwise equal, the one who sleeps the better will be the more healthy and efficient. Sleep will do much to cure irritability of tem- pj'r, peevishness and uneasiness. It will- restore vigor to an overworked brain It will build up and make strong a weak It wMl cure a headache It will cure a broken sptHt It will cure sor- row Indeed we might m'siko a long list of nervous and other maladies tha't sleep will cure. The cure of sleepless- ness requires a clean, good bed, suffi- cient exercise to promote weariness, pleisant occupation, and_ not too.Trartn a room; a clear conscience, and avpidat.o'e of stimulants and narcot- ics For fcfiose whp- a'le overworked, haggard, nervous', who pass sleepless nights, we commend the adoption of such habits as will secure sleep other, wise life will be phnrl, and what there is of it sadly iuiperit-ct. 'A Flail IB the Law. From the IVinonn Republcan Section six of the grasshopper bounty law potaed by tho last legislature, pre- scribing the manner in which the appropriated by the State shall be expended., closes as follows "That if "the amount hereby appropriated is not 'Sufficient to pay the certificates in full "the balpnce shall be paid by the coun- ties rr-specttive according the "amount due on said certificates as is- hued by said counties St Peter Tribune estimated that will only give each grasshopper county abnut enough, the Trib- une thioksj-to pny the receivers a fair compensation for their services As the law mukos the counties liable for the payment of all claims in excess of the amount received from the Slate, the chances are thst many counties, poor in everything bet may yield such enoimous crops of these pests as to become involved in hopeless bank- ruptcy in the effort to pay for harvest- ing them Tho Tribune estimates that with only a moderate crop of 'hoppers Nicollot county would Snd itself about in debt on 'hopper cor tifieates at the close if the season. The Commissioners that county became so much alarmed nt thi.i prospect that they went to St Paul last week to con- fer with the Governor on the subject, and found there a delegation from Faribault county on the same mission Lt was suggested to Gov Pillbbury, as the only prueticab'e way of evading this impending avalanche of debt, that he should decline to make appointments of receivers of hoppers, and thus prevent the presentation of any claims Another wa) out of the difficulty suggested was that in case tbc law compelled him to make the appointments, those counties tearing to assume the risk should in- struct the appointees not to serve Of course such actiuu by theGov ernor would practically nullify the law, for in the absence of receivers the law could not be executed and not a cent of 'hopper bounty could be expended. The farm- ers oi the infected districts wou'd then be forced to fall back on their natural and instinctive hatred of the 'hopper, Sght him without hope of reward from the State, and with no stimulous to exertion save self intciegt and bounty as each county feel able to offer. The Tubune hopes that should the State bounty be thus cutoff, "it will make no in the ef- "fortb to destroy the 'hoppers, and that "the provision of the law requiring five "days' work from each man will be en- forced all the same A petition to the Governor piaying that no appoint menta of receivers be made in Nicollel county has been quite generally sinnec by tho citizens of that county, and tb sentiment of the -people there seems to be that a vigorous against th common enemy can and will be uiudi without any aid of the State m the form of a bounty The Basis of Education. The more nearly a man can brinj, himself to work like a machine, thi more he can accomplish, and the great er the ease with which he can do it. When the child first tuea to has to give the most careful attention to eveiy part of his body, to fceep the proper balance, and U is slow and pain ful work Alter long practice, he ac quires the art so completely that his liuiba with little effort, his body seems to adapt itself to every condition needed to keep it upright, and walking running, nod leaping are rather a pleas ure than a task So in the learning to write.

The practiced accountant will run up two columns of figures ut a time, and with no apprecia- ble effort give the correct amount; the experienced actor will commit page af- ter page of his part, merely by leading it once or twice And so illustrations might be multiplied from every variety of professions. The same thing is true in (he morals and dispositions of men Repeated continuous truth telling makes it bec- ond nature; frequent lying makes it easier than speaking the truth.

I When Shall We Burn the GMLts 1 Prom the St. Peter Tiibuns. There are various opinions about the benefits to be derived from burning the prairieb As the hoppers continue to hatch as late as July, the best tiuie to burn is not definitely settled. Probably by ihe middle of June the bulk of the hoppers will be hatched, but at that time there will be so much green grass growing that the dry grass will not burn well, and by destroying the new crop of grass the hoppers not killed will nat- urally be forced to resort to the grain fields for sustenance The piairic chick- ens' eggs wil! also bo destroyed at that time. The law leavce it optional with the superintendent as to the time after May the burning shall be done, and it is not perfectly clear that it uiuiU be done ut all, if the su- perintendent deems it inadvisable We should like to hear front our farmers upon the subject Save the Grass and Burn the Hoppers Correspondence Jackson Republic In your issue of March 31 I notice an article making suggestions ia regard to what crops it is advisable to plant the coming season, which is all very good till he digresses and recommends burning the pruirie grasp as soon as the snow is off, claiming that it will be poor policy to save the prairie grass to burn up a few hundred hoppers, and it the same time destioy birds enough, which if left alone, would destroy hoppers by tha million Of course if his statement of facts were true, we would not .dispute with him about the policy. He would carry the impression that by burning the prairie grass, after the hoppers hatch, we would destroy all the birds, and at the same time burn up but few hoppers We will admit that it would destroy some birds' eggs, particularly prairie chickens and plovers, but 1 think it would be so eu in the season ti. >t they would lay and hatch afterward Ae to the blackbirds, I think there would be but few of their eggs de btrojcd, as they do not nest until quite late, an-1 usually in trees, brush, and cane-brake, where a fire W'll not be likely to run at that season of the year His intimation that we would burn c'a few hundred is still fur- ther from the truth, us substantiated by I he almost unanimous testimony of all who have tried it Indeed, it ih by burning that we can destroy them by tens of millions, yes hundreds of mill- ions So that if we should destroy a few birds' nests, I believe the wholesale destruction of the hoppers would amply repiy us for the loss of all the birds that would be destroyed. At any Minnesota has been trying the OUR WASHINGTON mrot Mother of Presidents, we cannot the grass in the f.-ll and early spring, 'ermine But a Virg-nia friend at grass ia the f.'ll and early spring thux, as ho would have us believe spiring the birds; and I believe even candid man will admit thai the experi- ment hyg nut been a me cess The hoppers have continued to in crease, in spite of the birds, nnd now that we have our prairie saved, I say let us try burning hoppers one ac least, and see how it wil woik And now, Mr Editor, iF you will allow uie to make a few suggestions about the time and manner of burnio the grass, I will bring this rather letter to a close. In the first place, I think, the proa lent idea of fixing upon a certain daj on which all are lo unite in buininp, is erroneous, as it ia impossible to tell wha kind of weather will be on a certain and this ail be burned when it is dry, and when thrre is :i slight wind, that the fire uiai run briskly so that the hoppers cannot get out of the way. I do not regard it as very important that the whole coun try should be burned over in one day as they do not travel fur ivhile younjj In regard to the time when it ought to be burned, I think from the 15th to the 25th of May the best lime, or aisoon as possible after they are hatched. Medical Skill. A good, but we know not how relia- ble a story, is related of venerable doctor. It was one of his rules never to have anything wasted, and, therefore if any prescription remained after the patient had died or recovered, he would euipty it into a bottle kept for the pur- pose, that became the receptable of heterogeneous compound that science could not analyze A younzer member of the family noted this us a very sin- gular fivct, and asked him the rrtigon for it The doctor hesitated a little, and then replied that, though in. ordinary he knew well what do, there were instances when medical skill failed At such times it was his custom to resort to the big bottle, and leave nature and accident to accomplish the cure And will you believe he said, some of my most brilliant successes have resulted from it! OUR experience in journalism teach- es us that there is nothing in this world that will so disgust and sicken the gen- eral reader as to learn, after wading through tho of un awful ac- cident; that there is a probability of the victim's recovery. SOME blunders are at once pardona- ble and amaging. but others at times are hard to endure-, and sometimes the clergy are caught nipping A parish- ioner who through a sum- mer without bitterly of the heat, much annoyance ,of his friends, at last took sick and died. His pastor absent at the time, and did lot hear of the sad event. re- turn he met tho son of the deceased, and unwittingly inquired1, snying Well, my friend, how Vour fa- ther bear the heat now Imagine lis surprise at being told that father rad been dead two months' To be a suceesful reproved first lonvince substantial acts .of cindness that you love like winter leather, u of use to all those verniino which thesuni- prf is apt to produce and uooritth.
