and the Burlington is the route of routes to

Splenic Fever Quarantine.
Governor Crounse has prepared a procla
mation relative to shipment of diseased cattle
into Nebraska from the south. The procla
mation is based on instructions received from
J. Sterling Morton, and in accordance there
with a quarantine will be established, dating
from February 15 to December I, 1894, and no
cattle are to be transported from the quaran
tined area to any portion of this United States
north or west, except by rail for immediate
slaughter, and when so transported the usual
rules must be observed.
The line marking the border of the area
containing the contagious and infectious dis
ease,known as splenic or southern fever among
cattle has been extended to the southward so
as to take a wide strip from Arkansas and the
southern part of Tennessee. On the western
boundary of Texas the line is moved to the
east. All these changes show that the area
containing the disease is much less than last

Vick’s Floral Guide, 1 894-.
It contains descriptions that describe, not
mislead; illustrations that instruct, not exag
gerate. This year it comes to us in a suit of
gold. Printed in eight different colors besides
black. Colored plates of chrysanthemums,
poppies and vegetables. On the front cover
is a very exquisite bunch of Vick’s new white
branching aster and on the back is the new
double anemone; 112 pages filled with many
new novelties of value as well as all the old
leading varieties of flowers and vegetables.
We advise our friends who intend doing
anything in the garden this year to consult
Vick before starting operations. Send ten
cents to James Vick’s Sons, Rochester, N. Y.,
for Vick’s guide, it costs nothing, as you can
deduct the ten cents from the first order. It
certainly will pay you.

Lenten sewing-classes were begun earlier
than usual, this season, and many of them have
already been productive of an immense am
ount of good. These are by no means purely
social organizations, although most of those
held in the morning end with a dainty lunch
eon, and some have an afternoon meeting
every other week which concludes with an in
formal tea to which gentlemen are admitted,
for which privilege they are permitted to con
tribute fifty cents each to the general fund.
One class employes the services of a well-in
formed woman who meets them once a week
to review recent events and comment on the
topics of the times, give them a summary of"
the latest new book, in fact, post them on all
subjects with which, to talk cleverly, they
should be conversant, but which, with their
other engagements, they do not find time to
study up. Many of the members hire seam
stresses out of employment to make up the
garments which are planned and cut at the
meetings, thus doing a double charity.—From
“Chat,” in Demorest's Magazine for March.

Great revivals of religion are reported all
over the country. A religious expansion near

consider the advantages of another.
