so doing, but doesn't say how many one

TURKEYS TILL YOU CAN'T REST.
An Kxperlenced Commlulon Merchant

"Turkeya until you can't rest."

"There always are plenty of turkeys," ex
plained tho commission merchant, "but I

"About the middle-of October tho early
turkeys are pretty well grown, nnd they are
put through a rattening process ior uuitkcl.
A good many different methods are em
ployed Somo farmers give them all the
corn they can eat three times a day. Others
shut them up and feed eornmeal dough;
wi.on tVi nrWv t.irs of eatinsr tho farmer
stuffs the dough down his throat with a spoon

flower seeds are also used for fattening and
in some sec tions walnuts are fed in the 6amo
manner. Tho dose is increased until just be
fore killing time, when two dozen nuts are
fed each day. This is the Italian method,
and tho rich flavor of tho nut makes the tur
key taste like wild game. The western farm
ers send them here for Thanksgiving and
Christmas by tho carload. In California
they have flocks of turkeys numbering thou
sands. They herd them like sheep. When
the grain is harvested they let them foray in
their immense wheat and barley fields, and
the fattening does not cost anything. All of
the early turkeys are sent to market in No
vemlioV, and the later ones aro kept till holi
day time. The early ones from the west
come alive, and are killed here; but, after
cold weather sets in, they are killed and
plucked where they are raised."
"Where are the best turkeys raised F'
"In Connecticut, where many large varie
ties are raised. There is one odd thing about
turkeys. Tho more one weighs tho more it
will bring a pound, and there will be no end

A Lawyer's Good Lucie.
A former Ilarrisburger who once held a
state office, and is now a resident of Phila
delphia, was a lawyer by profession, and,
after leaving tho service of the state, he
settled in a county which was then greatly
excited over the discovery of oil within its
borders. Hero ho hung out his shingle and
waited for clients. Sometimes they came, but
often they didn't, and his funds grew lower
and lower until at last it was a question of
bread and butter for him and his family.
Sittinir in his oflice one day with his head be
tween his hands, cursing his hard luck and
wondering whether life was worth living, not
a cent in his pocket and nothing to eat, no
was disturbed by the entrance of an acquaint
ance, who asked him to draw up an agree
ment relating to the lease or some laua ana
the sinking of an oil well.
"I'll do it if you pay me," said the lawyer.
"Now, see here," said thoiian, "you know
I have no ready money, but if you draw up
these papers I'll give you an interest in the
"I won't do it," said tho lawyer, bluntly;
"you have no money and aro fast on tho road
to the poorhouse. No, I won't help you 1"
"But you must," persisted the man ; "you
can do it. It won't cost you a cent, and you
must do it. Go ahead now. If I lose it is
nothing out of your pocket. Draw up these
papers, you've nothing else to do."
Well, tho lawyer, to get rid of the man,
drew up the agreements, and took as his pay
an interest in the oil well.
The oil well was a gusher, and the thick,
greasy fluid poured out over the derrick and
made tho poor devils who were putting down
the well fairly howl with glee. The lawyer
was on hand, just as excited as anybody eke.
and the very first chance he got he sold out
for $ 17,000 cash. With his money in his
hand he hastened home and told his wife his
good fortune and they both rejoiced.
"And now, mother," said he to his wife,
"let's get out of this."
And they lit out for Philadelphia. Ilarris

A Story About Beecher.
Abraham Lincoln once told a good story
alxnit Henry Ward Beecher, who, dressed in
very common clothes, was studying human
nature as exhibited in the highways and by
ways of New York. In the course of his
philosophic peregrinations ho went into a
mock auction shop. He stood a wliile on en
tering, and reflected, doubtless, how any one
could be so lost to all sense of truth and hon
esty as the auctioneer in question,-endeavoring
to palm off his worthless trash to the in
experienced in city ways as good and valua
ble, and finally the auctioneer called out:
"Mr. Beecher, why don't you bidT He was
greatly astonished, as can be imagined, at
finding himself known in this place, and, as
he had supposed, in his purposely care
less dress. He immediately left, and
tn rtod for the residence of one of the
members of the church in the neighborhood,
and requested him, as an act of kindness, to
go down and inquire of that person who had
sold himself to Satan for the love of gain how
it was he knew him in his disguise. The neigh
bor kindly consented, and on entering tho
"Peter Funk" shop he addressed tho auc
tioneer: "How ispt that you know Henry Ward
Beecher so well as to bo able to recognize
him in his disguise f
"How do I know him? Why, I have been a
prominent member of his congregation for
the last five years, and lease the fifth pew
from the front!" Ben: Per ley Poore's Letter.
The "Thirteen" Superstition.
The superstition that the number thirteen
is unlucky received a severe blow in New
York the other day when pilot boat No. 13
was launched on a Friday. The number
thirteen was connected with the craft ill
every possible way. Her number is thirteen,
thirteen members of the Thirteen club were
present, she was' launched at 4:13, there are
thirteen letters in her name, she has thirteen
berths, she was launched on the 13th day of
the month, sea calendar, she is to have a crew
of thirteen men. San Francisco Argonaut.
An Old Virginia &aw.
A relic of the ancient time was revived in
Virginia recently, when counsel for a man
about to be tried for murder asked that the
indictment be quashed because the foreman
of the grand jury that returned it was the
owner of a grist milL The old law forbade
the possessor of a mill from serving on a
jury. Nashville American.

Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 11. The
State Hoard of Health continues to re
Cttiye reports of the general prevalence
of typhoid fever throughout the state.
The accounts that have been published
about it in certain counties are exasrjrerat
ed, but still there are many cases in al
most every part of the state, and many
deaths are reported. It seems to be get
ting worse instead of better. The health
officers think that a series of heavy,
soaking rains would do nisre to improve
the genend health of the state than any
thing else. A special meeting of the
school board of tins city was called for
last night to take action to prevent the
spread of the fever among pupils. At
all scliool houses surface-water wells will
be tilled up, and wells will be driven to
the second or third vein of water, for use
of the pupils.

was cancerous or of a less malignant type.
Morrell Mackcn.V himself stated to his
colleagues that although he was unable
to satisfy himself with precision on the
subject, he felt, ncvcrthelcss.'that another
