Compared with some of the bog  slides which have taken place in Ire-  lund the recent disaster in County Roscommon may be regarded as of trifling  importance. In 1708 a slip of a mile  long and a quarter of a mile broad occurred at Cnstlegarde and buried three  houses containing twenty-one persons.  A similar disaster took place at Adder-  goole, in Galway, thirty-five years  later. Fresh in the public memory is the  bog slide of eight years ngo. Between 2  and 3 o!clock one bleak December morning tho edge of the Knock nageeba bog,  overlooking the Ownacree valley, near  Klllar-ney, gave way and liberated a  vast flood of peat and water. The flood  rushed along with startling rapidity,  swept away the stone built house of  Cornelius Donnelly, Lord Kenmare's  quarry steward, aud Donnelly, his wife  and six children perished.���������YVestrain*  ���������ter Gazette  y'Ssk  Its land; when properly cleared,  soil known to man, ' ' J <  WHEAT VEGETABLES  - ,; OF  will grow almost any product of the  <m  llili  OATS  RYE  ALL   KINDS  APPLES.

SMART.  Deputy Minister of  the Interior..  Department of the Interior,  ���������    ,  Queer Story of Some St. I*eter������liiir������7  Ten merchants.  A good deal, has been heard from ,  time to time of the extent to which the j  Japanese pushed their spy system, j  both-in Manchuria and Russia, before''  the war. The accuracy of the follow- ]  iug story is guaranteed by the Matin: j  Toward the end of J81)8 a Japanese i  from Kiusiu arrived in St. Petersburg!  and opened a tea warehouse on the j  Nevsky prospect. Shops of this kind j  simplv swarm in tlie Russian capital, i  but all the ������<uruo the Japanese prosper-;  ed exceedingly. j  In view of the big business he nntlc- ]  lpated at the* Easter festivities during i  the following spring the tea merchant i  got over live of bis fellow country-:  men as assistants. These were all ex- j  tr-emely agreeable, tactful young fel- J  lows, -who quickly ingratiated them- i  selyes Avith the.aristocratic clientele- of ���������  tho shop.  But despite the prosperity of their  business tho Japanese did not seem  happy. Their melancholy was noticed,  and at last they coufossed their secret.  They did not in,the least mind leaving  Japan; they were delighted with Russia. What they did not like was to re-  nialu foreigners on the soil of their  adopted country. Their dearest wish,  they said, was to become naturalized  'Russians and to.be admitted into .the  Orthodox" church.  The idea appealed to the aristocratic*  customers of the tea/shop, aud in due  course they were admitted into the Orthodox church and made Russian citizens.  Shortly after this the five new Russians -warited to get married and found  families.   Once   more  their  customers  ^interested themselves in their behalf.  Brides   were  found  in  the  shape  of  pretty young Russian work girls, dowries provided by ���������'subscription: and the  marriage   ceremony   duly, performed.  Time went on; children were born, and  everything   in   the   various   menage9  seemed to be most satisfactory when  suddenly the war broke out.   Two days  later  the   Russiau-Japanese  tea   men  had nil disappeared, leaving their wives  'and families behind them in St. Petersburg.   St. Petersburg society was flabbergasted.   The confidences It bad unfortunately imparted to the tea men  went-to Tokyo in the form of private  reports to the Japanese general staff,  while the heroes of the story, all captains or  lieutenants  iu  the  Japanese  army," went back to  their respective  regiments.���������London News.

'1 lie boats were still  lashed  to  the davits  and apparently  no      member  of  the  crew had  even  made an cflort to  lower any one of  them;'. ���������������������������"The twentynseven  men   had  ryene as   if  in vapor. ,  The authorities,made the most exhaustive   inquiries on   both  sides   of  the Atlantic,  but never-a trace of a  ���������single   soul   that   left (Boston. in   the  Marie  Celeste   was  discovered.   Various  theories  were advanced  in explanation   of  the  mystery,  including  piracy,  mutiny,   sudden   and universal  insanity and suicide, but ftll .the versions   were   rendered, impossible      by  the cxistiing conditions  of things  on  the  vessel   when  boarded.    The most  feasible   ������������������explanation   advanced   was  the following:  All were sealed at meal, except  the man at the wheel, who was the  only, hand on dec'.:, when a huge octopus arose from the depths, enfolded the man ftt the wheel, with one of  his tenaeles, -and carried'him off.  Mis cries jbrought it-he others severally on deck, only, to be in turn secured by the many limbed monster and  all,dragged ,to the depths below'! Curiously enough, the mark of a'slash  on the bulwarks ���������would seem to offer  a kind of confirmation of this theory  as if it were the result of a futile  blow'at'one of the waving tentacles.  But in   all  probability the     whole  .lr.iith  concerning  the  Marie Celesta  will never be knowja.  Why Buy From Peddlars?
