In an article on
article on "Difficulties of
Transportation in the Tropics,'
Engineering Magazine, C. P. Yeatman
tells some remarkable stories of the
strength and endurance of pack car
riers in Colombia. "There are pro
fessional pack carriers on some roads
who make a specialty of carrying bur
dens which the sturdy and much en
during mule cannot stagger under. On
some of the roads you will see at
times what appears to be a live box
6taggering slowly and painfully down
the mountain side ahead of you; as
you draw nearer you may hear the
box grunt, very much as an old pack
mle does at each downward step on
a aeep road. There is something un
canny about the whole proceeding, if
it is your first experience, and you
happen suddenly to overtake the box,

in some similar legend, but that Is no
help in solving the perambulating mys
tery, for whoever heard of a boxed-up
organ wandering alone down a steep
mountain path, and grunting as It
leeled along? Very likely the road is
loo narrow for your mule to pass your
fellow traveler, so you are obliged to
follow in its wake. But at last you
-are able to move ahead, and you find
that the organ is in no way to blame
for moving, for It has a man under
it. Short and stumpy he may be, but
the muscles on him remind you of the
pictures of old Atlas holding the world

hand he carries a long, stout cane.with

England on his way from Paris to this

quarantine on foreign dogs, and it
took a profusion of diplomatic corre

thus its exemption was not without
conditions. It was not allowed to

It waa enforced to complete Isolation
from its kind while on British soil,
but was permitted such solace as it
might obtain from the companionship
of an under clerk in the legation. On
the whole, its traveling experiences
would be rather humiliating to an or

the sum paid for this extravagant ani

Ltva Stock Report: The receipts of
hogs for tke trst twelve days this year
were 339.140. aaowiag an increase of
B.2S9 compared with the same time in
1897. when 240,857 head arrived. East
era shipments for the first twelve days
of 1898 were 43.381, while for the same
time in 1897 eastern buyers took 47,771,
a decrease this year of 4,390 head, mak
ing 83,673 more hogs in the hands of
the Chicago packers than during the
first twelve 'days of 1897. A year ago
the hogs averaged 245 pounds, while
this year's arrivals so far will hardly
average 23S -pounds, a decrease in
weight of fully 10 pounds per head,
equal to 13,623 hogs of 235 pounds av
erage. In total live weight this year's
arrivals show for the twelve days an
increase over 1897 of 11.322,935 pounds.
Values thus far this year have shown
some improvement over the corre
sponding time last year. Prices have
ruled fully 25 cents per 100 pounds
higher and the range In values for the
different grades has not been as wide.
The general tone of the market has
been firm and healthy since the holi
days and all hog product has been mov
ing freely. On January 12, 1897, May
pork sold up to $7.90 per barrel, lard
84.05 and short ribs 84.07 per cart,
while the same day the year top quo
tations were 89.50 per barrel for May
pork, 84.85 and 84.80 per cwt for lard
and short ribs. The quality of the ar
rivals since the first of the year shows
considerable improvement, being large
ly young hogs of last spring's litters,
and we have no doubt the old hogs are
well shipped out Our reports have In
dicated considerable hog cholera
through certain sections and a good
many cattle have been marketed in an
unfinished condition owing to the scar
city of hogs to follow them. Through
the southern states, where packers us
ually have a large demand for hog
product, we understand there Is a
shortage in the supply of hogs this
year, which of course will have a good
effect on our market Packers have all
been free buyers for some time past,
and while the weather of late has been
rather against their operating, the of
ferings have been easily disposed of
from day to day. Indications, In gen
eral, are favorable for a continued ac
tive Inquiry for the hogs, and while we
do not anticipate any sudden rise we
confidently believe the market will rule
stronger and valfees continue to im
prove somewhat as the season ad
vances. A Cure for Roup.
Mr. Benjamin Myers of Indiana, in a
conversation with a representative of
the Farmers' Review, gave this as his
experience with roup. He said that for
merly he had lost a good many fowls
by the roup and had been unable to find
anything that would save his birds
when once they had been attacked. One
day a doctor drove along and asked him
about his chickens. Mr. Meyers told
him of his losses by roup, and the doc
tor thereupon gave him a prescription,
which consisted of peroxide of hydro
gen. The manner of application was
to put one tablespoonful of this into
two-thirds of a cup of water. The bill
f the affected fowl was dipped in this,
tare being taken that none of it entered
the eyes. In cases of canker In the
mouth a very little of this peroxide
was put on a piece of cotton and the
places just touched. The result was a
rapid healing of the affected parts. Mr.
Meyers says that before he used this
remedy he had lost hundreds of fowls
from roup, but now he does not fear
roup, believing that he has a certain

the other hand, may not be palatable
to the beasts in the state it comes from

the purchase of appetizing materials to
make it more tasty. Such hay should
always be chaffed, and If It can be

if pulped, would doubtless induce most
animals to eat such chaff with a relish,
