Six men constitute a team in a contest for prizes. A Louisville Back scratch. Courier journal. Quot ill give you a House and lot if you la guess what i be got Here Quot said a citizen holding up a Small package where three or More other citizens had come together on fourth Avenue. Curiosity became intense. As nobody guessed the citizen said it was a Back scratch and took it out of the paper. It was a Small artificial hand doubled As is the human hand when in the act of allaying cutaneous irritation and it had a Long and beautifully polished handle. Quot it will reach any spot Quot said the citizen and he passed it Down Over his Back. Quot Yob see the ladies can t rub up against a Post As a Ian can and they must have one of Quot what a fool the inventor is Quot remarked one of the squad Quot that he Down t advertise it in the Buck wheat cake season my stars there is a Fortune in it Quot then they All said they would go and buy one. A a a where camphor comes from. The camphor sold in this Market comes chiefly from Japan. Formosa and Borneo furnish some. It is obtained by cutting up the camphor Plant leaves and All and distilling them. There is another kind found in the heart of an enormous tree which grows in the mountains of Borneo. The Trees Are Cut Down and split open and the gum is picked from the Centre. Sometimes lumps a Yard Long and three inches thick Are found but Twenty pounds is a Good Quantity for the average tree. The chinese have a great liking for this Quality and have been known to pay As High As $30 a Pound for it though the difference Between it and the common camphor is mostly imaginary. The crude camphor has to be re distilled before it can be used. Rattle Snake 01. The demand for Rattlesnake Oil is shown by the fact that the serpents Are often hunted systematically in order that quantities of their Oil May be obtained. Every summer citizens of Portland conn., go out to Rattlesnake ledges and catch the reptiles with Gaff Hooks the local druggists paying them $4 an ounce for the Oil which finds ready Sale. A prominent physician tells of a Case within his knowledge where a Man suffering from an ulcer took a Rattlesnake into his bed with the vague idea of somehow extricating the virulence of the sore. In some Rural districts of the Union men Wear the rattles in their hats As a Rennedy for headache. The Michigan Sand dunes. The great Sand dunes along the Banks of Many Rivers and particularly along the shores at the Southern end of Lake Michigan Are due to the presence of the Ophila Aren Aries or Sand gathering grass which possesses a remarkable Power of drawing up moisture. Indeed it May almost be called a miniature water pump for it is Able to keep the Earth wet for several inches around it. This wet Earth catches and holds the Drifting Sandr the process goes of the grass growing and the Sand collecting until a great Sand Dune is the result. The markets. Indi Kapous june 16.
