Belgian Hares, A very Interesting experiment is being conducted in the raising of rabbits in Palo Alto by W. F. Hyde. He commenced on a small scale last April and in seven montbs owing to the rapid increase It now requires sixteen pens or cages to shelter the growing young. These Belgian hares when grown are fine large fellows and tho meat is tender and delicate. The meat finds ready sale iu the market at twenty cents a pound and as they are easily raised and increase with startling rapidity it seems that a new and profitable Industry is assured. Mr. Hyde has tbe yards and pens most conveniently arranged so as to keep tho rabbits In and the dogs out. He uses alfalfa and barley for feed and it is ooly necessary to attend tbem once a day. They brood at six months old .nd every two months thereafter and tbe Utters contain an average of seven or .eight young. At seven montbs old tbey ure marketable and the successive f-iuil—o arrive so rapidly tbat Boon the market man will be kept b iay taking them away. ...If you now and thou discover a glaring error In your fuvorite paper be charitable In your criticism.

And the tones be played would melt a stone, Bot tbey mustn't'melt Ice. or he Would have slust—d up the saa. and lowered tbe tone. Imagine a ball In the Arottc Zone On a mnsby, slushy saa: A polar ball I. a ten* by thing; The nights last six month, there. Tbey dance from fall till early spring. The two step waits and the Highland Fling. Utterly free from oara. Tbey eat lee cream which tbey have to blow To cool It off, for It burn, them so, And tbey all dilnk 11 queued atr. Tbe wballoping wbales eamo floundering through A hole in tbe ley floor. And the seal, all came, and tbe osribou. Tbe old musk-ox, and the reindeer too: And many n—ny more. Tbey all joined feet und (Uppers and 0ns. And danced round the ''tile where Ihe world begins. With spout and bellow and roar. The I'olc stood still a. they all danced by: Sorely against bis will. But If be should move Just tbe wink of an eye The a-orld would wobble and thing, would fly; And tbe Ocean, would surely spill. So he heaved a si_b and took a brace, And held himself hard tn bis proper place; And the old world wags on still. Weather snd Craps.
