The district round Maldon, m Essex, is famous for its green peas, and recently the Great Eaßtern was running three trains a day loaded with peas only. This summer the crop has .been heavier than ever; and one single day, August 4th, saw the biggest con* aignmont on record, amounting to 578 tons, all of which were safely delivered by seven o'clock tho following morning. It shows the extraordinary character of the present summer that the entire month of August last year only accounted for 16 tons, while August 1885, and August, 1886, had only a total of 10 tons between them. In Dutoh India there are young men so eager to be married that they write to their friends m Holland to find them wives. The friend selects a willing lady, conforming to the suggestions m the letter. A photograph is enclosed m the reply, and after the lapse of a few months a Boiled left hand glove with a power of attorney, is received from the faraway bachelor. The friend m Holland marrioi the eeleoted bride as a sort of legal deputy from the aotual groom, and the young wife departs m the next Indian mail steamer to bring happiness to the lonely man m the East. The marriage is as binding as if the bridegroom were present, and it ia never repudiated. Keatiing's Powder destroys both moth, fleas beetles, and all other insects, v/hile quite harmless to domestic animals. In exterminiting beetles, the success of this powder is extraordinary. It is perfectly clean m application. See the article you purchase is Keatings as imitations are noxious andj ineffectual. S Id m tins, 6d, is, and 2s 6i by all chemists
