Holdensr in a red and Blue rail Way map it s Warren county Tennessee and As round As a Dollar. I to Der How in Thunder it got to be that shape Warren county Tennessee inquired a passenger with a White Slouch hat did you say Warren county Tennessee i know All about that county. Years ago there a n t no Warren county. There was a Little town called this town three or four men from Ohio settled bought land started stores and became prominent citizens. But Mcminnville was t a county seat. It Lay in one Corner of a county and the country around it was the Corners and ends of other counties. Under these circumstance Mcminnville did t grow very fast and there was no politics there and men living in Mcminnville stood no show in county politics anyway. These Ohio men tried to Rise in the political world but it was slow work. Finally Ulicy got mad and went to scheming. Before anybody knew what they were 1111 to had in Shioi n for Mali pm i j in a legislature creating n new county Warrenby name with Mcminnville As the county scat. When the surveyors ome to run the new county lines they found that the Law directed them to go West twelve Miles from Mcminnville drive a stake go cast twelve Miles from Mcminnville and drive another stake and North twelve and South twelve two More stakes and then run a circular line connecting those stakes. The result of course was a Circle and so Warren county appeared on the map As round As a Dollar and with Mcminnville right in the Canter. Then the Ohio men were Happy. They started right in run the politics of the new county filled most of the offices and got Rich on the Rise in the a us of their real Herald. Canine intelligence. Sir John Lubbock s dog that is learning to read must look to his laurels for a dangerous rival has been discovered by Monsieur Victor ecu Eicr who is writing a Book on the subject of the capacity of animals for education. Porthos the rival in question is a Black poodle age 6 years a belgian by birth but an inhabitant of Paris in which City along with his wife and m. Porthos eur it age 6 weeks he honors with his company a worthy wine merchant. Like Many Wise dogs Porthos understands that when a Sou is Given him he can Exchange it for a cake at the Baker s. Having got his cake however he does not eat it like other dogs but brings it Home to his master to Divide it into three pieces for the Benefito himself and family. In fact h seems to do the whole of their catering for if master Porthos wants milk the father takes both the Money and the milk can and sets off to fetch it. He is for All this no Teet taller but is ready to deliver a bottle of the neck in his Mouth and his head High in the air to a constant customer and duly to bring Back its Price. His most extraordinary accomplishment however is that he can go Down to the Celler and fetch a bottle of any kind of wine required. He distinguishes Between Whito wine red wine with Green Seal red wine yellow Seal red wine in half bottles and several other kinds. Porthos though conscious of his talents is said to be by no Means conceited or overbearing in his Demeanour in the presence of inferiors. St. James s Gazette. A Fine Grapevine. A California paper gives the following account of a Fine specimen of the Grapevine growing in the open air at Monticello near Santa Barbara and which is known As 1 Dona Marcelin a s this Grapevine which is the Pride and Marvel of the neighbourhood traces its origin to a slip brought by Dona Marcclina from a Young Vineyard at san Anton omission for a horse Hin. � � 1 Oit waa nearly withered from the effect of the Long journey she determined to make the trial to Plant it.

Curses Aro like processions they return to place from which they came. A face that cart smile is like a Bud that blossoms and Dies upon the stalk. Good manners is the Art of milking those people easy with whom we con verse. Life is a Quarry out of which we Aro to Mould and chisel and Complete a character. Whether happiness May come or not one should try and prepare one s self to do without it. Laughter is Day and sobriety is night and a smile is the Twilight that hovers gently Between both and is More . Nearly everybody has it in him to to Al us lit iii us no is. Improvement 13 chiefly the regulation of the propensities and passions. Every Man who enjoys a Blessing should be prompted to think of those who Are without it and try to help them. Each Benefit is a responsibility. The warm Sunshine and the gentle Zephyr May melt the Glacier which has bid Defiance to the howling tempest so the voice of kindness will touch the heart which no severity could subdue. The memory is perpetually Lookingback when we have nothing present to entertain us it is like those repositories in animals that Are filled with stores of food on which they May ruminate win their present pasture fails. An incident of anti Tum. The most savagely contested part of the struggle at Antietam was in and around the sunken Lane of Vioulet s farm where Jackson s corps for hours held the ground from which Hooker and Mansfield had been successfully repulsed Early in the morning. In their Yellowish Butternut suits the confederates were scarcely distinguishable from the Road bed on the ditch where they Lay or from the Ripe stalks of the Cornfield behind through which their re enforcing brigade were constantly descending. Not More than fifty Yards off lying or kneeling in the Green pasture Field without any shelter the Union Scaldwell s and the Irish so deadly a fire into that Lane that after the Battle six Hundred Confederate dead were found there. Repeated efforts were made by the Union troops to charge. Perhaps the first was in conformity to a general s orders the others certainly were not. The Confederate fire was so terrible that everyone however realized the need either of driving the confederates from the Lane and the rising ground behind or else of retiring to a vapid expressions As 41we must charge let s try the Bayonet boys were constantly repeated along the line and bayonets would be fixed without any order whatever so far As known from general or Field officers. But on making the Effort to charge and finding the enemy s fire irresistible the Union line with Heads Bent As if against a rain storm would Back up to its former position and kneeling or lying Down again resume its lire. Finally a clamor of desperation broke out. There were no troops in sight behind no Promise of Reserve or support and the situation was galling. The whole heavens was splitting with the detonations of Battle and the rest of the army was probably fighting for its own life. The men on their Knees fixed bayonets again for the tenth time perhaps and with a murderous howl of rage the three brigades rushed Forward and in a minute were in the Lane and their banners were ascending through the Cornfield toward the peach Orchard where Jackson himself is said to have been during All these hours. This charge which broke Jackson s i prot for Al Nril Mannl Rirl olf o i 1-""4 his Genius to prevent proving a supreme disaster to his army would not have been made when it was made if the initiative had depended on a commander s Ledger. Frogs skin As grafts. Sometimes slowly Healing wounds with feeble granulation Are made to increase their activity in the direction of transplanting minute fragments of epidermal tissue containing Somo of the cells of the Rote Mal Pighini on the Healing surface. O. Pertersen has successfully used the skin from the Back of a Frog. The slowly Cica Drizing wound was situate on the Back of the neck of a Man and had resulted from excision of a malignant Pustule. A piece of Frog s skin the size of the thumb Nail was washed in a 2 per cent solution and placed upon blotting paper when it was divided into two. The grafts were applied to the wound so that the blotting paper was interposed Between them and the Days after the transplantation both fragments of epidermis were found to be adherent. Two Days later a fresh grafting was made Tho former grafts had become Roseate. In a further period of forty eight hours Tho pigmentation of the grafts had almost Cicatrix resulting after this treatment was found to be of great softness and elasticity.
