There aro pcoplo who do not believe
in good or bad luck. If there is no
such tiling as luck, how is it that evil
so porsistontly dogs some men, and
generally men who deserves hotter
things. Thero lately arrived in Beat
rice a gentleman from a county west
of this. Ho is rather hard up now, be
cause of tlio evil fortuno that has be
fallen him in recent years. C First his
hogs died of somo disease, probably
the cholora, and ho was just recover
ing from this blow when ono morning
he found that eight head of his cattlo
woro dead in the field. Then ho vory
foolishly went security for a friend on
a noto and had to pay $500 before he
got out of it Divers and sundry mis
fortunes of a smaller size camped on
his trail persistently, and, discouraged
almost to death, ho decided to leave
that neighborhood and try to have his
luck changed. Ho was just going to
sell ofV his stuff for thisjpurposo, when
his barn burned down, and all his oats
and hay and buggies and harue-,3 went
with it. Hi aeked the lemnauts of
his goods on wagons nnd moved to He-;
ntrlco Then ho had to go back for an
other load, and on tlio way his team
died nnd without any apparent causo.
Ho Is a most industrious ami economi
cal mail, ami tries faithfully to got
ahead, but in the faco of such luck it is
only possible to run behiutl K it isn't
I bad luck what is It? Boatrico Expreaa.

Ono of tho most untidy appearing
places in tho world is a lot of aban
doned farms near somo city. Tuis is
nwticcablo near a great many of our
western cities. Land becomes so high
in price that '.lie owner will soli it to
somo land speculator or corporation,
who lays it out in lots, many of which
will not bo sold for somo time. The
result is that tho greater part of
this land is overrun with largo weeds
and has a vory untidy appoaranco.
This impresses tho visitor as being a
very peculiar state of affairs. Thero
are acres of wild sunflowers and other
species of weeds growing in splendid
luxurianco ndjuccnt to many cities. It
is also noticcablo that farmers near
such cities are not, as a rule, as indus
trious as those farther out in tho coun
try. Tills has been accounted for by
their spending too much time in tho
city or depending on tlio value of this
high priced laud to help them out.
Tho high price should be an incentive
to better farming, as they will be re
quired to grow better crops In order to
mako their land pay good interest 011
