TWO KINDS OF DRUNKS There are two kinds of drunks a drunk from imbiding too much barley corn, which makes a fel low, a fool for the time laeing, but leaves him when sober a good citizen and a gentleman. The other kind of drunk is that of some felKAv, who elevat ed to some position of trusft, be comes co inflated with his own self importance that be too is drunk, drunk from a swelling of the head and an enlargement of the "egg." This fellow drunk all the time is a fool nil 1I12 time, is n fool all the time. If he hap pens 10 be serving the public he is ovet -bearing, bull dozing and insulting, especially if he knows his days of preferment are over. - Such a fellow is to be pitied. He can't help it. He wauls to pose as a fellow of importance, a big fellow, but he, not knowing how, makes a mess of it, and about the only way out for him is to bluster. This, being the only thing in his cranium ho knows how to do he does it to p The public in dealing with such a fellow always has to run the risk of -being browheaten, bull dozed and "insulted." Rut the thinking man lets him roar, snort ar.dcavot. His capers aro amus " 1 iag. No harm ever results, and soon such fellows are relegated to tho ranks of the forgotten. Rut he will never get sober, has n't got scnsc,enough. A drunk en man who gels sober recovers tl.c use of his brains, but the oth .. er fellow, having no brains, nev er "sobers up."

I read, with interest all the let ters I see in your excellent paper in reference to hog cholera. Having suffered dreadfully in property interests, owing to this terrible disease among my hog?, I sought out a simple remedy which has aded Uke a charm for me, and f send it herein, hoping some of my brother farmers may be benefitted thereby. To one pint of kerosene oil put a half pint of spiriis of turpentine and two ounces of gum camphor. Shake this up together until the camphor is dissolved, then pour the mixture over your shattered corn, Sirring it up so .that some will get on all of it, then throw it oat to the hogs. I found that my hogs would eat this in preference to corn without it and I have never had a case since I commenced this remedy. I had several sick hogs with cholera when I commenced giv ing them the above, all but one recovered in less than a week. I had a very fine sow sick at the time and bad given her a dose by making it into a ball of dough and shoving it down her throat, she being too sick to eat. The next morning I gave my son a ball of this dough and tojd him to take oa&of the hands and go ?ii . ' V ""f "l i 1 ? evening before, nnu if she was alive to put it down her throat. He soon came back and said: "Pa, if you want me to catch that old sow I'll need more help than you gave me, for she's wild as a buck." In a few moments she enme in a trot and commen ced feeding with the other hogs. I have great faith in this sim ple remedy, and advise brother farmers to try it. It costs but. a trifle.? R. A.
