habitants, caiefiy lead miners, nine
persons were killed, and n.any badly in
jured. In regard to the shower of llesh in
, Kentucky, Prof. Sniitn, the scientist of
Louisville, sajs: la my mind, this
matter gives every indication ot being
the dried pawa of the batrichian rep
tiles, douotiess that of the fro. They
have been transported from the pond
ana swampy ground by currents ot
Grinds, and have ultimately fallen on
this spot, where they were found. This
is no isolated occurrence of the kind, I
having come ticross mention of several
in the course ot my reading. The only
one of which I can now fix the date is one
9 recorded by Maschenbroek.as occurring
in Iceland in 1GT5.
A strange report comes from Polk
county, Ky., about the fall of a shower
of flesh. A Louisville dispatch oi March
10:h says: Capt. J. M. Bent, a retired
lawyer of Mt. Sterling, Ky., and a gen
tleman well known for reliability." ar
rived here to-night with specimens of
the flesh which fell last Friday, in
Polk county. " The flesh covered two
acres of ground, ana resembled mutton,
and left traces of blood on the trees and
fence?, which were touched by the falling
flakes; chickens and hogs devoured it
with a relish. The heavens were ecu;
the fun shonf, and c uly fit-ating clouds
were visible at that tirre, 2 r. m. March
3. Quantities of the fie t: have bta-n
preserved. That brought to Louisville
was jjiveu to Prof. Licence Smith, the

into the'pump tank at the bottom of

and are only about or 4 inches
lenth. Theyare blood red in color.
The temperature of he water ia writc'Si?
they.are found ia 123 degrees Fahren
heit almost scalding hot. Yfnen the
fish were taken cut ot ths water in
which IheyVere found, and placed ia a
bucket of cold water, for the purpose o!
hems; brought tj the surface, they died
almost instantly. Tne cold water at once
chilled their life blood.
In aj p2arance these subterranean
members of the finny tribe somewhat
resemble gold fi.-h. They seem lively
and sportive enough while in their na
tive hot water, notwithstanding the fact
that they have no eyes nor even therudi
ment; of eyes. The water by which the
mines arc flooded broke in at a depth of
2.200 feet ia a drift that was being
pushed to the northward in the Savage.
It rose In the mine a'so in the Hale
and Noreross, the two mines being con
nected to th height of 400 feet, thit is,
up to the l.SOO foo level. This would
s.-eiii to prove that a great subt rranean
rest-rvojr or lake has been tap: ed, and
from this lake doubtless cixne the lish
hoisted from the mine last evening.

The pr-"tice in sock speculation
j bu,in'' what are termed, in brokers'
parlance, "privileges, wfcich has lor
some years been ia operation in Wall
street, is something new to our p?op!c,
but is being gradually introduced by the
brukeis on the stock exchange. For
those of a speculative turn, -a ho are not
possessed of a ba'ance a: the backer's
with which to make a purchase of 100
shares in Eat Rue, or GOO shares of Her
cules outright, this system offers an op
portunity lor speculation whereby the
operifir may, by exercising ordinary
prudence and foresight, increase his
capital from hundreds to thousanus, and
with but slight risk.
There are three kiii-ls of privileges,
viz. : "puts."' -'calls" aud '-straddles." If
the operator thinks that a certain stock
will go down, he secures a "put" upon
that ktjck; if he thinks it will go up, he
buys a "cail." A '-put" is a contract
trj.de with :; broker, wLich entitles the
holder to deliver to !.im, within a stipu
lated time and at a given price, a certain
amount of stock. A '-call" entitles th
holder to caH for or receive the st.'.ck at a
fixtd price, within a stipulated time. A
"straddle" is a d'.uble privilege, an
entitles the holder either to caii for or
deliver the stock at stated prices. This
privilege works both ways, and must pay

beside? his faia!! vhirh will be a
mere trifle;, A. will lj able to sccuie a
"put" contract for 109 shares of E-tst
Rie at eighty, for twenty or thirty day;,
or a -cail" contract f.r the sme amount
at eighty-four. Il the operator ha; been
v.atchinir tne market closely, day after
day, and is posted sr to the property,
prospee t'.ve tiividends, mangtmeut,
etc., he may form n opiui m -.s to weth
er tLis stk will advance or decline ia
p.-'ce wthtr. th? time n.mid in his con
tract; and. up. n ihf.t opinion, he wii! de
cide whether t buy a "pm" or a "call."
Should he thick the stock will go down
he buvs a -'put:' otherwise, he invests in
a "call." As an instance of what "might
h.ive been," a "call" for 100 pnarts of
the above named stock cou d have been
purchased, not more than lifcetn days
ago. at TO, and s.ild at the highest price
eince then at 90. making a profit of SO
per cent, or $200, which would leave,
after deducting the price paid for the
p-ivilfge, a net profit of f'175. on an in
vestment of $So. Uad the investment
been made ia a '-put" instead ot a '-ca.l,"
there would E&ve been a loss of ?Sj
the amount paid for t'.e privilege only.
TLe only risk is on the amount paid for
the privilege. A "straddle," as we have
? ated works both wars: it is bota &
"Pwt" and a '"call" combined in one
is safe, provided the stock advance
fecimes a jove or below the limits nam
ed m the contract.
In case there ie a stagnation ia the
market there can be no gain. "Strad

Annual KciMirt of theStTretary of the
Iowa State Airricultural Society.
The Des Momes correspou lent of the
Chicago Tniunt, gives the tollcwing
statistics from advance sheets of the
f jrthcotaisg report of the Sitretary ol
the Iowa State Agricultural Societ lur
the year 1S75:
O'rn has come to be the le:ding cereal
' of the State, and Iowa i making rapid
bushels. In 1&74 the product uns 54.-
000,000 bushels. Tne present crop is at
mucti as lrom the previous crop uy o,
000,000. The average yield is S4 bush
els per acre. This is not half v hut it
could be with proper cultivation. The
same quantity might be raised on one
Lalf the number of acres.
The wheat crop of the past year has
ben short in yield, and is f iaferb r
ouslity. Frr the United States, the
crop ol ld74 is nearly :n0,000,000
bushels. The harvest of lb'73 will shov
70I,00O acres, producing 43,4S";.0Cs
bu-hels, an increase in two years of
10,011,172 bushels. Assuming that
there was no increase t f -irea in the part
year, and accepting as a bnsis the ab-
strict of the dirtercnt c unties report
ing, an 1 adopting the average yield per
acre ofithe previous year, we have h pro
duct of onlv 37,700.900 bushels, or a de
crease of netny C.000,000 bushels.
Estimating it at th2 lowest cash price
(GO cents per bushel), we have a d.tlc't
of $3,000,000. Thee loss'-s do u.t o
cur in our own State alone. Rut eight
Stat' sin the Union are above the aver
age; and, while Iowa in 1874 was only
4 per cent below the average, the de
crease lor the yar close 1 is S3 per cent.
