Texas Farm and Ranch If Texas prairies excel in! grandeur and lexas flowers in beauty, the 1 ex as tarantula is certainly the! type aud em bod inn ht of satanic .ugliness and viciousuess. At least, so thought the writer at his first view of one in a state of nature. This was an uncom monly large specimen, standiug full four inches high as he marched thro' the grass by the roadside, with all the lordly indepudence of a cowboy at a country dance. He paid no attention to man or horse, as I rode and walk ed all around him, inspecting him minutely oirall sides. At length, a tap of a switch on the grass near him roused his ire. Springing upon a tus sock of grass, he rose savagely upon his hind legs like a bear ready for a fight. At this point, I thought it safest lo put him "out of harm's way," which was accomplished by a single sharp stroke on the neck (or waist. I if you prefer the term), cutting him fairly in two. Ihe blow also severed vein, thus poisoning the stream of blood on its way to the heart. The unfortunate woman died in a few minutes. The ordinary result is to kill the flesh for some distance around the bite; this then sloughs out, leaving a sore which takes months to heal. The above description refers to the large black tarantula, which lives al most exclusively in the "black lands." The writer has heard a great deal about the smaller and less venomous grey or sand tarantula, but as he has never seen one, in a residence of five years in a part of the State where they were said to abound, he has con cluded that the name was applied to the large gray prairiej spider a very respectable, well-behaved gentleman, with about as much! resemblance to the black tarantula, sisasheppurd dog has to a wolf. There is a Texas spider, however that, in proportion to size, is far more venomous than the, tarantula. Its poison seems to per vaide every portion of its body, and if crushed on the hu Pension Swindlers.

Owing to the near approach of the'Gulf Stream to the coast oi North Carolina, there are one or two counties of the State whose climate is as warm as that of Flori da. A Maj. W. h. Young, who has given the climate close study for ten years, claims that we have a scini-tropical area of con siderable extent, the mean temperature of Smith ville, be inn 66 the same as Mo bile, Ala. '1 his gentleman has drawn a (map de fining a section of about 1.44K) square utiles which he tenusas the sugar belt of North Carolina. Smith's Island, the extreme cape of the coast line that forms the two angles of a square, is located at tho focus of the warm area. It has 10.000 acres of fertile laud free of frost all the year. The Louisiana sugar eaue has been grown hji several couuties for oyer twen ty years, and is becoming quite an indus try. I live about 75 miles from the focus of the warm area Smith's Island) aud twen ty miles from outer liue of the sugar belt area. By improving upland I made last year 2,250 pounds of sugar aud 120 gal lons of molasses to the acre, and Maj. Young thinks that as the wild olive and sable palmetto and other tropical plants grow upon Smith's and Oak Islands, without dubt orange tiees could also be successfully and profitably grown upon these islands, if not upon the adjacent islands also, E.

A lady told the writer that as she was sweeping her house, she was startletTtj see a large tarantula in the act of entering the door. With a stroke of the broom she knocked the intru der several feet iuto the vard. The en raged creature turned and made one leap Irom the ground, up five or six steps to the door sill. She at once clapped her broom upon him, and suc ceeded, with no little ilifficultj iu holding him down till help came, aud the "bug" was .dispatched. I was also told by a credible witness of one leap ing from the ground to the shoulder of a mule, and indicting a bite from which the animal never rocovered. A friend of the w riter engaged ain emigrant, fresh from the Emerald Isle, to dig a well for him. Going out to see how the work progressed, he was somewhat surprised when the son of Erin suddenly swung a large taran tula within a few inches ot his em ployer's face, with the query : "Mis thcr Bradley, is this a young bar?" Mr. B. says he made a most astonish ing backward leap, rivalling those credited to the tarantula itself. The creature must have been stunned or benumbed with cold, for he made uo hostile demonstrations. Much as this creature is dreaded, the writer has been able to learu of but very Jew authentic cases of its bit ing a human being, and of only one iu which the bite was fatal. That one was a Mexican woman, who was bit ten in Waller county many years ago while sleepii g on the ground. It is supposed tho tarantula crawled into her open hand, which she instinctive ly closed upon feeling tiie hairy crea ture, whereupon the latter instantly one entrance which is always from the top.
