A Few Additional Testimonials to the
Efficacy of the Waters of'W-hite
Sulphur Spring. .
These waters, which are coming
thmore and more into notice and use,
strike directly at the cause of disease,
removing it and thoroughly cleansing
the system. It is a great renovate, as
well as tonic. Rheumatism1 in all its
forms and stages, neuralgia, dyspep-
sia, all skin diseases, syphilitic dis-
ease in all its forms, and all diseases
of this class, due to blood poisoning,
are speedily relieved and in most in-
stances permanently cured.
In nervous exhaustion and debility,
spinal troubles, affections of the stom-
ach, liver, bladder and kidneys, it has
proven especially efficacious.
Many female troubles are greatlyal-,,
leviated and a greater per cent. of
them entirely cured.
Read what those wlo have been
benefited have to say-and these are
only a few out of thousands of such
certificatesin the handwriting of those
benefitted anid well known, on file in
the"oftfies of the proprietors and open
to inspectin;:- ; '

Messr. Weight & Powell, ?
DE)AR 'SIR:-I am glad to add m'y
testimony to the virtues ofyour White
Spring waters." It is truly a great
blessing to humanity; it is a wonder-
ful water. In my case, it has beeu al-
most like an elixer, of life. For neu-
ralgia, dyspepsia, and enfebled uri-
nary organs, all these have been re-
lieved for me so muth that I am dis-
posed to think that nothing could have
(lone for me so well as the WhiteSul-
phur Spring water.

MY DEAR DOCTOR:-Yours of the
23d to hand. In reply I will say.,
about eight years ago I visited White
Sulphur Spring in Florida, and proved
the efficacy of the water in my own
case. For two or three years previous,,
I had suffered with rheumatism inimy
knees, and had become, at that time,
very clumsy and stiff, unable to step
up or down, without pain, and could
not walk on a level any distance. *1
drank freely of the water, but did not"
use the bath. After eight or ten days
improvement, was perceptibly bet-
ter, and continued to improve until I
could mount a horse as easily ps when
young and free from every ailment.
Now, after five, or it may be six years,
*I find my trouble returned, and in-
tend td go,again to drink of the heal-
ing water, now owned,,I believe, by,
Messrs. Wight&,Powell. In haste, but
truly yours, OJ. R.REED, M. D.
To DR. W-. P. CLOVER, Cairo, Ga.

i The Town. of Enterprise.
S TOLUSIA County, Florida, is situ-
o: --ated on the north shore of Iake
S' .Monroe, two hundred miles 'south of
Jacksonville, and inthe middle of the
S' "Orange Belt." Forty years ago the
I Indians'paddled their canoes on the
St. John's River, kindled their fires
near the Shell Mound, on the former
site of our town, and roamed through
:' the woods that skirt our Lake, and
again retreated before the onward
tread of civilization. The shores of
SLakelfMounroe are now studded with
i magnificent hotels, beautiful winter
S homes and enchanting orange groves.

MILLTOWN, GA., July 24,1884.
Messrs. Wight & Powell,
GENTS:- had rheumatism in, tje
worst degree for two weeks, and had
tried various remedies, and foundnd no..
relief. Finally I met a very eminent,
physician who was acquainted with
the White Sulphur Spring;,' He ad-"
vised me to go there, and in' two:*
months was cured. I would advise all"
rheumatics to give the spring a trial;
am sure they will be benefited. Re-
spectful, R. A. BUR'KHA<ER.

iarly known, lives on a comfortable
homestead of his own, about twe miles
north of the, famous White Sulphur
Springs, on the Suwanee river and in
Hamilton county. He is sixty-odd
years of age, but hale and hearty, plow-
ing and hoeing in the field shoulder to
shoulder with his boys of a score of
summers. He has been married twice,
and is the father of twenty-three chil-
dren, eleven by one and twelve by the
other wife. None of them were born

farm is well tilled, yielding an ample
support for his truly remarkable fam-
ily,who enjoy the usual good health
of the locality. His father before him
had a family of twenty-two children.
He avows that "the waters of that
spring are 'prolific.' "

new house is to obtainn five hundreds
rooms, and is to be opened January 1,
next. John A. Maguire, who built
the "San Marco," is to be the contract
tor for work on this, which is to com-
mence immediately. There will be
four eight-inch artesian wells, with
power to throw water into the fifth
story of the building. This will sup-
ply the water. Otis Bros. will put in
a gigantic improve elevator. The furi
niture will be mixed, but all of the
most costly kind. The Sunnyside ho-
tel, a square west of the plaza, has been
purchased by a company of Northern
capitalists, among them Mr. Franklin

Spring g, ino Haimrtnhi^ flg
I had been suffering fo
and under medical. treatment for an
utleerated sore -leg, and had lost all
hope of recovery. A friend advised
me to try the virtues of this spring,
which I did; remained at the spring
only two weeks, and left there appar-
ently entirely cured. Seven years la-
ter, I was again a sutfferer from a like
cause, but not nearly so bad off as for-'
merly. I again visited this spring and
spent two weeks, and have since been
exempt from this distressing disease.
I have ever since considered it a mi-
raculous cure, and that the waters of
the White Sulphbur Spring are the best
blood purifier which has ever come to
my knowledge. Yours very truly.
This is to certify that in March, 1883,
I went to White Spring, Fla., for my
health. During the summer and au-
tumn of 1882, I was treated, by physi-
cians in New York for kidney and
blader trouble, which showed ap-
proaching rheumatism very strongly,
but without receiving any benefit. I
returned South, and as stated above,
in March went to White Spring. The
weather being rather cool for bathing,
under the advice of Dr. Fraser I be-
gan drinking the water very freely,
and with much benefit from the first.
I remained at the spring only three
weeks; and in one month after reach-
ing home, I was in perfect health. I.
am still enjoying the best of health,
and 'consider myself permanently

the best medical attention, buit could
get no permanent relief. But in two
days after I reached the spring, I was
relieved from pain, and am now en-

Messrs. Wight & Powell,
GENTLEMEN':-Sonme years since I
spent a month at the White Spring,
and derived great benefit from the free
use of the delightful water in being re-

I saw at that time some remarkable
cures of very bad cases of rheumatism,
and others of dyspepsia. My expe-

the world can find no place where the
healing waters will more likely cure f
such diseases, and many others, or

Mlessrs. Wight'& Powell,
GENTLEMEN:;I have been greatly
troubled during the past twelve years
with rheumatism, probably the result
of exposure during the late war. Dur-
ing the summer of '81 and 82, I spent
four or five Weeks each at your place,
and found great relief; and notwith-
standing that my business (station
agent) caused great exposure during
the past winter, I am much better
than I have been in the past twelve
years.-In fact, have had but very little
rheumatic trouble, and believe if I
could spend one summer at your
spring now, I would be entirely well.
Last March my wife became severely
afflicted with uterine trouble, and af-
ter spending less than three months at
your place, she was almost entirely
restored. If possible, I intend that she
shall use the bath again next spring, '
confidently believing that a perma-

The hermit crab is a queer sort of an-
imal, which takes up its habitation in
shells vacated by other animals. The
Professor said that if a hermit crab
was placed in a tub of water with sev-
e Lral shells it would examine them all,'
and then select that best adapted to
itsmcomfort. If two or three crabs
were put among the same shells they
-would often fight for the, best shell.
The hermit often traveled about in

,of protection from the octopus. The
polyp did tde fighting, while the her-
mit carried him about"and collected
food for both. ,
A crab and a cocoanut were held up
,by the Professor before his audience.
The crab, he said, was~a palm crab and
lived in'cocoanut groves. It tears off

through the shell, and then lifts out
the meat in chunks with its pincers.
The palm, crib has a special breath-

The Former Crustacean Dis-
appearing from View.

A 0rab with Legs Eleven Feet Long and
Hardly any Body to Support +

The small logs seen anchored in the
neighborhood of Hell Gate at certain.
seasons of the year are buoys for "lob-
Bter pots," so Prof. Bickmore told the
class of public school teachers in a lec-
ture, delivered- at the American .Muse-
urn of Natural History in New York.
The "lobster pots," he said, are made
of slats in a semni-cylinderical shape,
with a flat bottom, in which is an ori-
fice large enough to admit, a lobster.
The animal having been tempted in,
has not the requisite amount of sense,
as a general rule, to find its way out.
The appendages of the lobster werere-
marked upon as peculiarly adapted to
Its natural wants.; The two claws or
pincers differ the one from the other,
a fact which always gives them an un-
gainly appearance. One of the claws
has a series of grinders and is used as
a mill to crush shell-fish and other
hard substances, while that on the op-
posite sideis provided with asharp edge,
which is used in cutting up fish and
similar substances. The lobster pro-
pels itself by means of thin plates at-
tached toethe body which it uses as
oars. Its eggs are attached to the un-
der side of the body and carried about,
and to protect them from rocky bot-
toms the tail of the animal is doubled
up under it. completely covering them.'
There were said to be lobsters in the
Mediterranean which had no claws.
The rate at which the animal in this
country is disappearing was deprec-ated
by the speaker. "In my boyhood,"
said he, "we used to gather any quan-
tity of theimn between high and low
water mark on the coast of Maine, and
they were much larger than those we
see now, too. At the present time

"Papa Can't Find Me."7
No little steps do I hear in the hall,*,
Only a sweet silver laugh, that is all.
No dimpled arms round my neck hold me tight;
I've but a glimpse of two eyes very bright,
Two little hands a wee face to screen. .
Baby is hlding-that's plain to-be seen.'
"Where is my precious I've missed so alld;y,0
'Papa can't find me!" the pretty lips say.,
"Dear me! I wonder where baby can be?!''
Then I go by, and pretend not to see. *' *'
"Not in the Parlor and not on the stairs?
Then I must peep under the sota and chairs!
The dear little rogue is now lahgbing outright;
Two little arms round my neck clasp me tight.

When papa can't find you, mv darling, my own.

some. The first dose eased my brain and

the pain.
The second dose eased me so much that I
slept two hours, something I had not done
for two months. Before had used five bot-

worked too hard for my strength, and taking

Dust from Roller Skating RIUs.
A stylis~hly-dressed young lady
whose features were concealed by a
thick veil, entered the down-town of-
fice of a prominent physician yester-
day afternoon, and, with some show of
nervousness, requested an audience
with him. The doctor lead the way
into his private office, and the fair pa-
tient removed her veil, remarking as
she did so, "I wish you would tell m6
what is the matter with my face."
In the dimly-lighted room the physi-
cian was unable to discov# that any-
thing was wrong. Stepping to the
window, the lady said, pointing to the
roguish dimples that nature had placed
on cheeks and chin and the little
creases about the corners of her eyes.
"Do you see that? My face looks as
though I had been working in a coal
mine." Closer inspection showed the
physician that the dimples and creases
as well as the larger pores in the
lady's face were filled with a dark,
grimy substance. "I have scrubbed
and worked at that until I am tired/
but cannot remove it. I am satisfied
it is not dirt," she continued, evident-
ly judging from the physician's look
that he was about to tell her to take a
"I understand," remarked the doctor
with a smile; "the roller rink again."
"What do you mean,?" she asked in
a troubled tone, t
"Nothing but roller rink dust. That
is all. It is nothing serious., Try
soap and water again and use this so-
lution before retiring at night, and
your complexion will be all right
"Oh, I am so glad," the lady re-
marked as she adjusted her veil and
"That is the latest feature of the
roller skating craze," remarked the
physician to a reporter who had over-
heard the conversation with some
amusement. "That is the second lady
who has been to see me with a similar
complaint within a week."
"What is the cause of it?"
"Why, you see, the dust that- rises
from the floor of the rink is veryhfine
and penetrating, and when it settles
on the skin, dampened with perspira-
tion, it at once finds its way into the
pores."-Cleland (Ohio) Leader.

A Singular Tree.
You will be astonished when I tell
you of a tree, the bark and leaves of
which are marked by nature with al-
phabetic images in the language of
t, *" T -.thoe tree o, t1
thousand images.of- I2f
the legend' am;; ^1escr'i1ption o the

.'. .ar away .tf- the dreary land of Am-
bo, a part of Thibet, is a green valley,
in which, in a Tartar tent,was born a
wonderful boy named Tsong-Kaba.
From his birth he had a long, white
beard, and flowing hair, and could
speak perfectly his native tongue.
His manners were majestic, and his
words were few but full of wisdom.
when he was three years old, he re-
solved to cut off his hair and live a
solitary life. So his mother shaved
his head, and threw his long, flowing
locks upon the ground outside their
tent door. From his hair sprang the
wonderful tree. "
Tsong-Kaba lived many years, did
countless good deeds, and at last died.
But the tree which had grown from his
hair lived on, and they called it the
"tree of the ten thousands images,'
and at last accounts, it was still alive,
and much care was taken of it. The
people built high walls of brick
around it, and an emperor of China
sheltered it beneath a silver dome..
Two French missionaries saw this
tree some years ago, and they say that
it seemed then to be very 01d. It was

not more than eight feet high; but
three men with outstretched arms
could scarcely reach around its trunk.
The branches were very bushy, and
spread out just like plumes of feathers,
The leaves are always green, and the
wood, which was of'a reddish tint, had
an odor :like that of, cinnamon. The
: bark of thW tree- was marked with
many well formed symbols in the
Thibetan language: alphabetic charac-
ters also appeared in a green color, on
every leaf, some darker, some lighter,
than the leaf itself.''
Now all this seems marvelous, and
some of it more than we can believe;
but the missionaries actually saw the
tree, and were fully convinced that the
marks upon it were of natural growth.

How China Gets its Name.
The Celestial empire has borne in
its time many names' for it was a cus-
tom when a new dynasty ascended the,
throne to give another name to the
empire, as Hai que, Chum que Han que,
etc., according to the name of the rul-
ing monarch. The true name is said
to be Chumque, "the centre kingdom
of the world." This term was by us
age corrupted to Chin que, and from
this word the Portuguse gave it the
name of China.

SATURDAY, MAY 23, 1885.


VICTOR HUGO, the world-renowned
French poet, novelist, patriot and
"statesman, died yesterday.
ON Thursday of last week the first
passenger train over the Tavares, Or-
lando and Atlantic railroad run
through to Apopka. It was received
with great demonstrations and the
day was given over to jollification.
The road is a great boom to the peo-
ple of the section. Tavares, its western
terminus, is rapidly acquiring impor-
tanfe as a railroad center.
SUJMMERtravel in Florida is increas-
ing year by year. When the merits
of the climate become better known,
Jitwill be a popular summer resort, be-
cause people can always find a cool
place here, even on the hottest day,
by getting under a shade. The absurd
ideas of Northern people with regard
to intense summer heats here, are be-
ing rapidly dispelled. No matter how
hot it may be in the sun, people can
and do work in the open air with less
,strain on the system, and less discom-
fort, day by day, than in any other
part of the country, and the nights
are always refreshingly cool and con-
ducive to repose.
' WE respectfully hasten to assure
the .Floridian, and other papers notic-
ing the same article, including those
purloining it outright, that it was not
"alarm" which, prompted us to point
out "Jacksonville's Opportunity,"'
which we recognized to lie in the im-
mediate extension southward of the
Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Hall-
fax" River railway. It was -merely a
jnatter of justice and duty to and A
State pride in an acknowledged met-
ropolis. we desire to see every place
in the State prosper alike,, and have
no more particular interest in Jack-
sonville than in any of the rest of them,
but, being strongest, if she can con-
troll a, trade that has been going out of
the State, we want to-see her rise up
in her pride of spirit and do it!

of the house is as inviting in every
respect-as the'exterior. The spacious
rooms above and below are divided by
airy hallways running the length 4f
the building., The ventilation and
lighting are perfect, and the air of
wholesome freshness pervading every
nook and corner is truly refreshing to
the victim of city hotels. Every car-
pet and piece of furniture is new and
the building is not yet two years old.
The offices, parlors and sitting rooms
are pleasant and, like the rest, furn-
ished with a view to the convenience
and comfort of those who periodically
come here to make their home for a
sea.oi.. The ,iLp n.cirnatc-dipliid-

agreeable entertainment itwould-be .
useless to search after..
There'are nice little dances many.'
evenings in 'the hall across the way;
boat rides on the' river, where Aduskyr
Indian maids, far back in traditional
times,.were wooed and won by warrior
lovers; rambles and strolls through
romantic groves, among woody ra-,
vines and over sun-checkered. ridges;
drives and gallops through the beau-
tiful country beyond, where the roads
are as, smooth and hard as turnpikes
and the horses' feet ring out on the "
air musically and echo through the
woods. It is a lotus-tempered haven,
where discontentment has not enter-
ed; and the people who-come here
from many sections, catching the in-
fluence of surroundings, as.it were,.
drift unconsciously and unresistingly
into a depth of placid satisfaction-
with themselves, the place and their
fellow visitors it would be hard to dis-
turb. There is in the very atmos-
phere a sense of rest and recreation, .
Even the confirmed invalid appears
comparatively contented and happy
as he strolls quietly about under the
oak trees, conscious that he is. in no
danger of getting in anybody's way or,,
,of being jostled or run overT, for the,
noise, rush and strife of the mart are
left behind, in 'another world, as lt
were, and here there is time and space
for everything and everybody, and a
great deal to spare. He may stroll to
the spring for water or a bath, -loiter
back again and, when he has grown
tired, join Others on. the piazzas or,
undisturbed in the recess of, his capa-
cious rocking chair, pleasantly dream
the time away. The children find the
jolliest of play grounds under the
great trees about the house; the ladies
find a delight in everything; the gen-
tlemen indulge lazily in cigars, bil-
liards, ten-pins, and so on,'taking 'life
carelessly; the young people enjoy
skating and croquet and love-making,
while the old ones look' on and ,gd
back to the days, when it was the same
with themselves.
The.immediate environs of the vil-
lage and spring are picturesque and
romantic in the extreme. The smooth,
firm walks lead off to green-wooded
precipices, cool, shady nooks,, abrupt.,
declines, with always a softening
background of. foliage; romantic.
streams and rustic bridges, rocky ra-%
vines, and places where fairies usedto "
dwell and still, mayhaps,. hold their.
moonlight dances. <;

a vast water-power waiting to be util-

.above and below the springs, are other
shoals, where the rock almost' spans
the stream but where the fall is much '
less. The river has a good current,
everywhere. These shoals are easily
and safely visited by row-boat from
the spring. The stone is excellent for
building purposes, hardening with ex-':.

of it cheaply'available. The marine '

"Oil-scouting" is an industry devel-
Dped by the wildcat enterprises in the,
Iil regions of Pennsylvaniaduring the
past two or three years. The owners
of a well frequently make a "mystery"
of it, by boarding up the derrick and
guarding it night and day. They are
thus enabled to keep to themselves al
knowledge as to its value as a producer,
and thus to operate in the certiflcato
market from an advantageous stand-
point. When a well in what is con-
sidered an important new territory is
made a mystery, the brokers and other
operators at pnce become anxious tp
know whether it is really a good pro-
ducer or only a "dry hole." To obtain
this information, they employ men
thoroughly skilled in all matters per-
taining to the oil industry, and pos.-
sessing courage, endurance and shrewd-
ness, to scout around the mystery
wells and learn their true character.
These men use strategy, bribery, and

A Curious Scientific Fact not
S, Generally Known.

The Length of a Man's Spinal olumnn an
Iniex to His Character, .
_.__ .
When a person compliments another
by saying he has a good deal of "back-
bone" he comes very near stating a
scientific truth without knowing it,
I perhaps. At least, so remarked a
i, Anaval medical officer to the Washing-
: ton Star the other day, as the latter
S stopped to chat in the room of the Na-
S val Examining Board. "Step up here
I a moment," continued the officer, con-
ducting the reporter to a measuring
rod which stood in one corner of the
room. This rod, besides having the
notable arms with which a man's'
height is guaged, had another interme-
diate arm below, by'which the length
,of his legs isdetrmined. The differ-
S ience between these measurements, of
coutrs6, shows the length of his body
aind head, "There," said the officer,
aeftethe reporter had subjected him-
self to tne measuring process, "you are
sixty-nine and five-eighth inches tall,
your ,egs are thirty-three and five-
eighth inches long-pretty good legs-
S and that leaves a length of body thir-
ty-six.inches. That's very good,4bove
the average."
S"Well, what doesn't all mean?" asked
!,the reporter. 4
i Boiler power," remarked an official
who was standing near. '
S, The medical officer enlarging on the
figure thus,. suggested proceeded:
"That's it. You see (putting his hand
on his head) here's the governor.
Here," he continued, lowering his
hands to his chest, "is the boiler. The
lungs and the heart are here, and be-
Slo'areth6eiabdominal organs or vis-
Ser.h Your mouth and nostrils are
blowers. You shovel in coal-take
food-in your mouth. It is turned
into steami'-blood-and goes out in
every direction, you see, toward the
surface. Now the man with a long
body has a great deal of boiler surface."
.M* Then the man with considerable
backbone is stronger than the one who
has not?"
"Well, that is one circumstance to
be considered with others, of course.
The maA with backbone is apt to have,
greater power of resistance. He can
S" endure more toil and can resist disease

."Ther was a case here not long ago,"
continued the officer, "which would in-
dicate that a man's backbone had a
great deal to do with his general char-
acter. An officer, who was examined
forpromotion, was found to be plysi-
qm, mentally and professionally un-
fit, agd also morally unfit. He was

I Expenses at College.
Althouiigh the difference in the
amount of money which students at
different colleges spend is very great,
there is not such a disparity in the
necessary expenses as many people sup-
pose, says the Harvard Crimson. At
the city colleges, such as Harvard,
Yale' and Columbia, the necessary ex-
penses may be about $100 more than
at Amherst, Dartmouth, br Williams;
but this slight increase is more than
counterbalanced by the aid which
larger colleges offer indigent students.
Harvard has at her disposal 122 schol-
arships, varying in amount frbm $85 to
$350, averaging about $235., In the
freshman year there are two assign-
ments made and iX is possible for a
hard student'to receive $600 in scholar-
ships during the first year-a sum more
than sufficient to pay all his expenses.
Here aid is given to students who are
needy and who stand high in their
classes;.but in almost all other colleges
those who intend to study for the min-
istry are the favored ones, and at
some colleges it is impossible for any
others to receive the slightest assist-
ance. Room rent, board, and tuition
are the principal items in the neces-
sary expenses, and of these room rent
varies the most. At Amherst a stu-
dent pays from $40 to $125 for a single
room; at Williams, $25 to $100; at
Yale, $50 to $150; while at Harvard
the rent varies all the way from $44
to, $300, with very few desirable rooms
for less than ', $150. Of course if two
students room together the expense
is reduced one half. The difference in
the second item, board is not nearly so
great, the large numbers at the city
colleges rendering co-operation much
easier and enabling the students to
procure better board at less cost. It is
possible tq get as good board for $4 a
week here at Memorial' hall as could
be gotat Amherst or 'iany other college
for $5 or $6. Tuition ranges all the
the way from $12 per year at Oberlin,
O., to $200 at Columbia; at Brown,
Bowdoin, Princetoni, and Williams it is
$75; at Amherst $100, atYale, $140,
and at Harvard $150. By adding to
these main items of expenses other
necessary items, such as clothing, fuel,
washing, books,etc., we can arrive at
what may be called the minimum ex-
pense at the various colleges. Sta-
tistics have been carefully prepared at
this. point, and the fallowing may be
said to be the very least annual ex-

The Oldest Bank Note.
The oldest bank note probably in
existence in Europe is one preserved
in the Asiatic Museum at St. Peters-
burg. It dates from the year 1399 B.
C., and was issued by the Chinese Gov-
ernment. It can be proved from Chi-
nese chroniclers that, as early as 2697
B.. C. bank notes were current ip
China under tihe nfigie -of "flying
money." The bank note preserved at
St. Petersburg bears the name of the
imperial bank, date and number 6f is-
sue, signature of a mandarin, and con-
tains even a list of the punishments
inflicted for forgery' of notes. This
relic of 4,000 years ago is probably
written, for printing. from wooden
tablets is said to have been introduced
in China in the year 160 A.D. .

Turnip Flavor In Milk.
Mr. Wm. Housmau, an English
farmer, writing to the National Live
Stock JAiurnal on the subject of tur-
nips giving flavor to milk and butter
when fed to cows, says that it is only
necessary to cutoff the roots from the
tubers before feeding in order to get
rid of the strong flavor. This is cer-
tainly a novel idea, for it is equivalent
to saying that there is no'strong flavor
in 'the tubers, and that all the obnox-
ious scent is located in the few small
roots. Mr. Housman says: "I never
knew clean-dressed turnips to flavor
butter or milk, and I have used them
in considerable quantities for dairy
cattle." While we do not pretend to
decide for English farmers on this
turnip question, we are uite certain
Sno one in this country ever fed turnips
to milch cows without imparting a
rank and objectionable flavor to both
milk and butter, if any of the latter
was made from the former. In fact,
if a cow breathes the air of, a stable
where turnips are fed it will flavor her
milk, even if she does not eat a mouth-
ful of the roots.

Sweet Corn as Feed.
Sweet corn is very rarely used as,
food for stock. When sound it is
usually worth much more for seed than
for feeding. If, however, a farmer
has 125 to 150 bushels which he can-
not sell, he can make it useful for
feeding to almost any kind oU stock,
ground as he suggests. He must not
expect that it will provemore valuable
than ordinary corn. The two as feed
are much more nearly alike than would
be thought, the sugar in one being
S chemically identical with the starch in
the other. Both are fattening rather
than flesh-forming foods, and as sweet
corn weighs less than the other it is
probably less valuable per bushel as
feed. The starch in field corn is con-
verted into sugar in the stomach as a
part of the process of digestion. Most
kinds of stock soon learn to like sweet
things, and a portion of sweet corn
meal may thus be eaten by a fattening
animal after it has taken all it will of
plain rations. In this way sweet corn,
may have a value considerably greater
than any analysis would indicate.
Milch cows should do well on sweet
S corn, and the farmer should not forget,
if the seed will grow, to utilize some
by drilling in a patch for fodder to be
used for soiling next summer. Sweet

An Orchard Fertilizer.
The best fertilizer I have ever used
for fruit trees is made of chip-dirt
from the wood-pile, and old ashes. I
mix in the proportion of one bushel of
ashes to three of the chip-dirt, stirring
' well with the shovel. About two
bushels of'this mixture is to be spread
': around each young, tree, giving the
large, welt grown trees more. The
manure is applied at any season. Do not
pile around the tree any litter or rub-
bish that would harbor mice. In, sum.
mer keep the weeds from around the
trees. Experience has taught me that
this fertilizer serves a very important
purpose, not only in supplying the
trees with suitable food, but in mel-
lowing the soil, and helping on such
crops as I may choose to plant in my
orchard. It is an excellent fertilizer

for any crop annual or perennial, and
the ashes (from hard-wood), supply
the trees with the element they most
need, and the soil lacks, namely, pot-
It is a pleasure to see how a young
orchard will thrive after an application
of this fertilizer. Sometimes I burn
logs to get ashes for this purpose, and
if I have no chip-dirt. I go to a dead
oak or a hickory, and scrape together
the fallen bits of bark, and the rich
earth around the tree. It is a very
good substitute for the chip-dirt. It is
obvious that this material is rich in
the elements of food of trees. I believe
in keeping fruit trees well fed, and
'l that a large space around each tree
e should be given exclusively to the tree
from which to draw its supplies. I
never plant close to my trees, prefer-

gives the appended note of experience
and suggestion especial value:
"If your subscriber can purchase
good wood ashes at 10 or 12 cents per
bushel I think I run no risk in saying
that 50 or even 100 bushels per acre
would be a good investment on land
that had never received a previous ap-
plication. Ashes with us cost from 25
to 30 cents per bushel, and most of
them contain but a small per cent of
potash. For this reason, for two
years past I have used some commercial
fertilizers containing a high. per cent
of muriate of potash with better re-
sults. With the growing cheapness of
commercial fertilizers, ashes are far
less called for in this vicinity. I have
within a few years used a fertilizer
consisting of the following mixture,
with excellent results on mowing land
and pasture: Three or four bar-
rels of ashes mixed with one barrel of
fine ground bone. Put in this water
enough to dampen it thoroughly, but
do not make it sticky. Work it to-
gether well and add one bushel of gyp-
sum to hold the ammonia. Let it
stand a week or two, which will soften
the bone. Fill into the barrels or
leave it in a pile. This will be a fair
dressing for one acre. On land desti-
tute of potash, 100 pounds of- muriate
of potash might do well. On worn-,
out land, for rye, use fifty bushels of
ashes per acre, and sow on clover in
the spring, working it in with a
Thomas smoothing harrow. I know
of no more expeditious way of re-
claiming such land."

To Bid Cattle and Hens of Vermin.
There are several simple, easily-ap-
plied remedies, which, if used persist-
ently, will accomplish the above ob-
ject. Tobacco smoke applied with a
fumigator, is one of the cheapest, most
easily used and most effective anti-
dotes, if one has the fumigator. Some
use yellow snuff with good success,
rubbing it thoroughly into the hair,
Either of the above is sure death to
the vermin. There is a wash or dip
made by a Maryland firm which is a
very effective remedy for lice on cattle
and ticks on sheep. The only objec-
tion to using it at this season is the
liability of injuring the animals from
getting chilled by washing in cold
weather, Cedar boughs scattered
freely,around the tie-up will cause the
lice to leave.. Insect powder is also
another sure remedy and easy of ap-
.plication. It should be .thoroughly
carded into the hair. Only a 'smallt
quantity is requtai to acoamplpo e
purpose, and most ..of the lice "oji"'an
animal may be found upon the neck,
around the base of the horns and roots
of the ears or upon the brisket.
Druggists claim that this powder is
only poisonous to such insects as
breathe through the pores of their
skin. To all such it acts as an irri-
tant and produces death, while those
animals which take air into the lungs
through their nostrils suffer -no incon-
venience from inhaling it in small
quantities. They also claim that there
is no danger from poisoning by cattle
licking themselves after an applica-
tion of the powder. Some recommend
mixing insect powder with an equal
quantity of sulphur for killing lice on
hens, then after removing all litter
from the floor, apply to the head and
neck, also between the legs and under
each wing. After allowing the flock
to remain anl hour or two, let them
out and pour boiling water over the
floor or ground where the fowls stood,
so as to kill the vermin which has
fallen from them. The addition of
carboilic acid in crystals, in the pro-
portion of one ounce of acid to two
quarts of the hot water, will be of "

great advantage, 1as it makes an excel-
lent disinfectant. The nests should
be sprinkled with a solution of about
twice the above strength. In regard
to feeding sulphur to stock the general
belief now is that it does not possess
much value as a medicine, yet there
are those who think it a preventive of
disease. Some excellent stock growers
mix sulphur with Liverpool salt, in
the proportion of one part of sulphur
to eight parts of salt, and keep the
mixture in open troughs where cattle,
sheep and horses have free access, to
it. Sulphur was formerly used quite
extensively as a laxative, but there
are other article which are considered
preferable.-American Cultivator.

the young women of the country, and \
to'a less extent the young men went n
wild over it. It was declared the most o
delightful exercise, and such was the s
ardor shown that people with money 5
were crazy enough to believe that for o
once the passion was a genuine one,
and would endure, and, so invested
their cash in the erection of skating
rinks all over the county. The fu s
ror was, however, as brief as are other E
vagaries of fashion; the enthusiasm 1
died away, the rinks were deserted~the
investors lost their money, and roller t

Over two-thirids of the women in
the world spend about four-fifths of
their life-time in the kitchen, and
there is no greater mistake than
stinting the kitchen furniture for some
other part of the house. The kitchen
should be light and large-but not too
large. It should be cheery in tone,
and convenient in the relative ar-
rangements of its fittings.

Dainty Biscuits.-Beat very light
one egg; pour it over a pint of flour,
add a wine-glass of milk, and chop in
one tablespoonful of lard and butter
mixed. Work thoroughly together;
break up pieces the size of marbles,
which must be rolled as thin as your
nail. Sprinkle with dry flour as you
roll them out to, make them crisp;
stick with a fork and bake quickly.
Potato Salad.-Boil six or eight
potatoes, and when cold cut them in
very thin slices; a salad bowl must
then be rubbed with half a clove of
garlic; some finely chopped chervil or,
parsley strewn over the potatoes in-
the bowl, and pepper, salt, oil an("
vinegar poured over the whole, and
well stirred; the quantity of oil should
be in the proportion of one table-
spoonful to less than a tablespoonful
of white French vinegar.
Cheese and Onions.--Half a pound
of good cheese, four ounces of onions
and half an ounce of butter. Peel
and chop some Portugal onions; melt
the butter in a dish; put in the onions,
with a little pepper and salt; cover,
and set them in the oven to stew,
When tender, but not soft, spread on
a flat dish, and cover them with good
toasting cheese, cut in thin slices
without crust; toast it quickly and
serve immediately. If the common
onions be used, they should be cut in
two and boiled a few minutes.
Apple Pudding.-Cut good, tart
cooking apples into slices, after they
are peeled and cored, and lay them in
in a buttered baking dish in alternate
layers with dried bread crumbs.
Sprinkle each layer thickly with sugar
and lightly with cinnamon, and let
the top layer be bread crumbs. Melt
an ounce of butter and pour over the
pudding. Bake- till the apples are
done. This receipt may be varied by,
using apples for the *top, layer'"and
covering the pudding, just after taking"
from the oven, with a meringue made
by beating the whites of three eggs to
a froth, with two tablespoonfuls of-
granulated sugar and the juice of half
lemon. Return it to the oven long,
enough for the egg to acquire the de-
sired firmness.
How Washington Swore at Monmounth.
Describing the revolutionary events
of 1778-79, Professor John Fiske in a
lecture in lNew York said: After the"
failure of the Conway cabal and the
intrigues against Washington, the
commander-in-chief devoted his ener-
gies during the rest of the winter at
Valley Forge to the organization of
the army. In this work, he received
the most valuable assistance from the"
Baron von Steuben, who arrived at
this juncture and received from Con-
gress the office of inspector-general of
the army. Steuben had been an offi-
cer under Frederick in the Seven
Years' War, and was familiar with the
wonderfuldiscipline of the Prussian
army. Washington at once recognized
the value of Steuben to the American
cause. The sturdy German officer did
not disdain to perform the functions
of a drillsergeant, and musket in
hand he made the soldiers go through
the various evolutions, of which till
then they had known nothing. In
spite of their ignorance he found the

men quick to learn, but being of a
harmlessly choleric emper, he was
often sorely tried. After exausting
his whole stock of German oaths he
would begin again in French, and
when finally the resources of this lan-
guage proved inadequate to express
his disgust, he would call an interpre.-
ter to swear at the troops in English.
The results of Steuben's training dur-
ing the trying winter at Valley Forge
were seen the next summer in the bat-
tle of Monmouth, and to a certain ex-
tent offset the treachery of Charles
Lee in that engagement. Lee at first
refused to take part in the battle, but
later changed his mind and led the ad-
vance column of the American army.
After bringing his command into a
most advantageous position, where he
might have given a terrible blow to
Clinton's army, in direct disobedience
to Washington's command he began to
retreat. Lafayette, suspecting treach-
ery, at once sent to Washington, re-
questing his immediate presence.
Washington came galloping up from
the main body of the army, and, find.
ing the advance guard in full retreat,
for once seems to have lost his temper i
and swore roundly at Lee. The re-
treating column was reformed and
battle was given, but the golden op-
portuntty had been lost.

L;.' 1 some visitors confine themselves to its
= use. MIajor Thos. F. Wesson, formerly

manager of the White Springs Hotel,
and who owns the spring and adjacent
.' property, contemplates, erecting, a
:i large hotel here, as at the other spring,

and the situation is eminently suited
to the purpose. The interesting analy-
.',. sis. of the water of t-he Iron' Spring
:l ; (and the accompanying note by the
analyst, as.given below, speak suffi-
ciently strong for themselves:
DEAR (fR:-The mineral water sent to me"
' 1 for analysis presents the following composi-
tion, I,.one gallon of two hundred'and thir-

live away from it. He owns some fine
properties through the country
around, besides his Iron Spring. May-
he live long and prosper.
Mr. Robert M. Kendricks, 'besides
his farm, runs a general livery busi-
ness, furnishing turnouts and saddle
horses to guests of the hotel and con-
veying passengers by hack to any
point on either railroad or in the
country desired.
Captain R. W. Adams has two well-
stocked general merchandise stores in
the village, one on the Hoboken and
one on the hotel side. He conducts
the affairs of the former in person,
while Mr. F. Adams has charge of the
latter. Both are pleasant and genial
Mr. 0. K. Paxton, postmaster to the
people of the bailiwick, besides satis-
factorily discharging the duties of this
office, deals in a general line of mer-
chandise, stationery, etc., and oper-
ates a saw mill, grist-mill and Sea-Is-
land cotton gin in the vicinity. Alto-
gether he is a useful citizen.
Mr. Charles Broward has, three
miles east of the Springs, a very de-
sirable home, including 400 acres of
good land, comfortable and commodi-
ous frame house, some fine orange
trees and a grove of younger ones,
LeConte pear orchard and other im-
provements, which is for sale at a bar-
gain, as hehas become interested in
.Haines City, a. new town in South
Florida, and desires to concentrate
his interests.
Messrs. Wight & Powell, owners of
the spring and hotel property, and a
good deal of that adjacent, do the
principal mercantile business of the
community, and they display an ex-
tensive and comprehensive stock.
The business at this place is under the
management of Mr. J. A. Powell, of
the firm, who is'efficiently assisted in
his duties by Mr. Gus. Bell, a young
gentleman of business predilections
and pleasant address. Mr. Powell is
a living monument to the virtues of
the waters of the spring. He was for
many years a great sufferer from acute,
inflamatory and suppurating rheuma-
tismh, the marks of which he promi-
nently carries, But the disease itself
has been eradicated from his system.
The surface of the contiguous coun-
try is underlayed with clay, cropping
out in some localities. Captain R. W.
Adams has a brickyard near the
Springs where a good medium quality
of brick is turned out. With so much
good building stone at hand as the bed
and banks of the river- afford, brick
making here might be looked upon as
rather a work of supererogation. ,
Mayhaws, whortleberries, gooseber-
ries, plums, grapes, de wberries, black-
berries, cherries,etc-.'are amonge.hbe
wild fruits enjoyed here. The may-
haw is abundant and makes an excel-
lent jelly. The woods are now full of
the whortleberries, which are mush
prized for the table and, with the oth-
ers, in the culinary department.
The settlement on the Hoboken side
was-and sometimes is yet-known
as "Scrub Town." It retaliated, how-
ever, by dubbing the Springs side
"Gopher Hill." Both are too pretty
to be known, by any other than eu-,
phonious names. White Springs for
the whole and Hoboken for the one
will do.
..The local market is abundantly sup-
plied with honey at an average price
of 8 cents per pound. -Syrup, by the
barrel, is worth 35 to 40 cents. Eggs
bring from. 10 to 121/; chickens, beef
and mutton are reasonably cheap,
and the quality of all is excellent.
Cattle and sheep do well, and a good
many are raised ; long staple or Sea
Island cotton is the' principal crop;
corn produces an average crop; sweet
and Irish potatoes produce well; oats,
averagely ; vegetables, fruits and.
sugar cane abundantly.,,
As an agricultural county there is
none in Florida superior to that in the
vicinity of the Springs, and the peo-
ple of the community are industrious,
prosperous and happy.

The Embankments of the Suwanee-Are
they Artificial?
In conversation with a gentleman
who has recently spent some time up-
on the Suwanee river, he stated that
the well known embankments that
are seen at intervals along the lower
Suwanee which have usually been
considered natural or deposited by the
action of water are not so but are
wholy artificial. In support of this
view he states among other reasons
that they are of nearly the same slope
upon both sides, that they are not,
formed in layers or strata as river de-
posits but in various different colored
clays, sandy and loamy soils, in addi-
tion he ,cites a system of straight
,streams or ditches leading along the
natural drainage points of the lower
lands with others crosing at right an-
gles, in short following the same gen-
eral plan as exhibited in the embank-
,ment and drainage of the lower Miss-
issippi.: The condition of the vegeta-
ble remains in these embankments,
he states, would indicate a period co-
temporaueous with the ancient
mounds upon the coast and with, the
canals, traces of which still remain be-
tween Choctahachie Bay and St. An-,
drews Bay and between St. Josephs
Bay and St. George's Sound.
This view of the case we must con-
fess is entirely new to us and is wor-
thy of careful and scientific investiga-
tion. It has usually been supposed
that there would'be an amount: of se-
page or under drainage from higher
levels that would prevent all applica-
tion of the dike system upon this coast
but were it possible to adopt it even
upon the Suwanee it would furnish a
large area of the finest sugar lands
in the United States besides being
adapted to all the fruit and vegetables,
of this latitude.-Hamilton County

merly-a saving of ten miles. A daily
mail service is demanded and the im-
portance of the place merits atten-
tion to it from the Department. There
is a daily private delivery from the
office at Welborn, where a great many
receive their mail.
There are prospects *at a railroad
will be constructed to the -Springs,
either from Lake City, Live Oak or
some intermediate point, before many
more seasons roll round. When this
is done, an important town on the
banks of the Suwanee will quickly
follow, for there is no prettier or more
healthy site in all Florida.
The hotel here is kept open the
year round, and boats, bowling,, bath-
ing, etc., are free to all guests. Colonel
Freeman is now holding out special
inducements tb families and excur-
sion parties.
The excellent class of all buildings
going up in the neighborhood-and
there are a considerable number-is
particularly noticeable.
A church, school house and Masonic
lodge are among the buildings of the
place. The society of the village is as
good as could be asked, good order
prevails and
are allowed sold.; for this is a sulphur,
water town in a cold water county.
Mosquitoes are unknown here, the
gases from the spring apparently
keeping them at a distance. Then
there are no marshes near to produce
The waters of the springs are fine
appetizers-indeed all the influences
here are-and eating is one of the
pleasantest and most regularly ob-
served features of daily routine.

former company one is taken to Live
Oak, where Gus Potsdamer has relays
of spirited stock and elegant turnouts
in waiting to transport rapidly and
comfortably across the country to the
place of destination.
A pleasant morning ride of about
two hours, westward from Jackson-
ville over the Central and Western
line of the latter company, which re-
cent improvements have rendered one
of the best in the country, brings us to
Welborn, eight miles north of which
lies the village of'White Springs.
Here connection is made with the con-
veyances of the hack line of the

,'tion between this point and

out through the long stretches of odor-
ous pine forest, the monotony of which
is broken here and there by glimpses
of the glistening waters of clear lakes
and the inviting shadow of pretty
clumps of hammock trees strewn
along thle route, we have hardly. had
time to become tired of the sameness
of recurring features when we over-
look of a sudden the old Suwanee,

A Silent Man.
Among the reminiscences of the
.war the following extract from an in-
terview with an old Virginia Metho-
dist preacher is interesting:
^ "Yes, my house was full of your
generals last night. There was Sheri-
dan, Humphreys, Meade, Custer, Ord,
and quite a number of others, and they
were a lively set and full of fun, and
all were quite jolly with the exception
o;of one officer whom I noticed sitting
in a corner smoking, and taking but
little part in the sports in which the
jest were engaged. ,They all went out
of the house but this solitary, silent
m:,an, and as I was going out he asked
ine where the pump was, as he would
like to get a drinl On offering to get
him some water, he said: 'No,'sir; I
am a younger man than you, I will go

'npself, and as I passed out he came up
. behind me. When in about the mid-
dle of the hall my little granddaughter
came running toward me, but the si-
lent.man, spreading' out both arms,
caught her, taking her up, fairly
smothered with kisses, said: 'This re.-
minds me of my, little' girl at home,
and makes me homesick.' To the
question, Where is your home? he re-
plied: 'Galena, Ill., but I have my
family at City Point, and am anxious
to get back to them.' I said 'Will you
permit me to ask your name, sir?'
'Certainly; my name is Grant.' 'Grant,*
exclaimed I; 'Gen. Grant?' and I stood
there awe stricken and paralyzed with
astonishment, while my heart went
out after this man.' I thought to
myself, here is a man whose name is
now in the mNibuth of man, woman and
child, throughout the civilized world,
and yet withal he exhibits no emotion
and seems unconcerned and unmoved,
until the little child reminds him of
his loved ones at home,, and I fairly
broke down. as Gen. Grant had been
.pictured out to us as a bloody butcher
and Ifhad looked for a man looking as
savage as a Comanche Indian. To say
I ws agreeably disappointed when I
saw Grant expresses my feelings but

dull season. He asked me to be his
groomsman. Bullion was going to be
"Of course, you'll think it a foolish
thing for me to do," wrote Bullion;
,'but even at 60 a man has not entirely
outlived the age, of sentiment; and
when once you see Sophy Adriance
you will forgive any seeming inconsis-
tency, on my part."
I Ant straight to the genteel board-
ing house.' It was possible that I
might be misled by a similarity of
name, although even that was unlikely.
"Is Miss Adriance at home 1l- asked
of the slatternly servant girl who an-
swered the bell.
"No, sir. Miss Sophy's spending a
few weeks with a friend at Saratoga,"
she answered promptly.
That was enough. I went home
and inclosed Bullion's letter in an-
other envelope, directing it to poor
Charlie Dresden's address, Poste Res-
tante, Vienna. adding a few lines of
my own, wherein I endeavored to min-
gle consolation and philosophy as aptly
as possible.
And then I wrote, curtly. declining
to "stand up" with old Bullion.
It was but a few weeks subsequent-
ly that the waiter showed an, elegant-
ly dressed young lady into my room at
the hotel. I rose in some surprise.
Aside from old Aunt Miriam Platt
and my laundress, my lady visitors
were few. But the instant she threw
up her thick tissue veil I recognized
the soft blue eyes and damask rose
cheeks of Sophy Adriance.
"Oh, Mr. Mottimore!" she cried pite-
ously, "I know you won't mind my
coming to your parlor, because you
seem exactly like a father to me." I
winced a little at this. "But I have
received such a letter from Charley,
and as-as you've known him a long
time, I thought perhaps you could ex-
plain it to me. Oh, I have been so
wretched. And indeed, indeed, I
didn't deserve it!"
SShe gave me a tear-blotted letter And
then sat down to' cry .quietly in the
corner of the sofa until such time as I
should have finished its perusal.
"What does he mean, Mr. Motti-
more?" asked Sophy plainitively,"when
he accuses me of deceiving him, of
selling myself to the highest bidder?
Oh, it is-so dreadful I"
I folded the letter and looked se-
v e r e ly *a t h e r I'
"Miss Adriance," said I, gravely, "it,
strikes meyou are trying to play a
double part here. The affianced bride
of Benjamin Bullion ought hardly to
hope to retain the allegiance of poor
Charley Dresden into the bargain."
"I don't understand you," said Sophy,
looking wistfully at me. .
"Are you not to become the wife of
Mr. Bullion, the banker?" I asked,
"Oh, dear, no," said Sophy. "That's
"Eh?" gasped I.
"It's mamma," answered Sophy.
"She's to be married next week! Didn't
you know it ?'
I stared straight before me. Well,
I had got myself into a pretty, pickle
by meddling officiously in affairs that
didn't concern me. "
"Look here, Miss Adriance," said I;
"I will tell you all about it."
So I did. I described old Bullion's
letter, my own false deductions there-
from, and the rash deed I had com-
mitted in sending the banker's corres-
pondence to Charley Dresden.
"And now," said I, "do you wonder
that he is indignant ? "
Sophy's face grew radiant.
"But there's no harm done," said
she. "No realharm, i mean. Because

I've written him a long letter all
about mamma and Mr. Bullion, which
he must have received almost the next
mail after he sent off this cruel, cruel
sheet of reproaches." \
Sophy was a true prophet. There
was no "real harm" done. The next
mail brought a letter -full of entreat-
ies to be pardoned,and a brief, brusque
note to me.
I' stood up with old Ben. Bullion,
and that full-blown rose, Sophy's
mamma, after all; and when Charley
Dresden came home I cut the big wed-
ding cake at his marriage feast.
From New York to California by Sea;
The ships that sail from this port to
San Francisco take about 125 days to
make the outward trip. The price
usually charged to carry a passenger is
$300. As one can get to San Franoisco
by rail for half that sum in a week, it
wpuld not at first appear that people
could be found to occupy the fine state.-
rooms that are fitted up for the use of
passengers in all of the California clip-
pers. But the existence of three class-
es of monomaniacs-ppople who are in-
ordinately fond of the sea, drunkards,
and love-sick youths--furnish ,occu-
pants for the staterooms and helps to
swell the profits of the owners of the'
ships. A young man who likes,the sea
anl whose health has been undermined
by office work and kindred frivolities.

determines to build up his systen1i and
enjoy himself at the same time by tak-
ing a trip around.the Horn. ,The cap-
tain of the clipper likes to see him
come aboard. He is not apt to be sea-
sick, and is so wonderfully and fearful-
ly nautical that he furnishes a consid"
erable amount of innocent amusement
for the first month at least. Then he
always insists in hauling at the braces
or the halyards when those ropes are
to be operated upon, and so, though
he is somewhat in the way at first and
manfully restrains his desire for pull-
ing and hauling just as he gets to be
Shandy, a good deal of work can be got
out of him in a quiet way. The-drunk.
ard is another sort of a passenger. He
goes to sea not by chioce, but on the
recommendation of his relatives and
Friends, who generally offer him the al-
ternative of an innebriate asylum. He
usually smuggles enough liquor aboard
to keep him in his favorite article of
drink and good humor for the first
month; but after that he is apt to get
sick or ill-natured. Sometimes he gets
cured of his bad habit, and is an agree-
able companion for the entire trip, .,
The love-sick youth mourns and
sighs about the ship and gets frightful-
ly sea-sick, and writes long letters a d
maudlin poetry between spells. He
has to be petted and waited on, and is
really a nuisance. If he recovers from
his love and sea-sickness, he is apt ,o
become a good fellow and an acquisi-
tion to the society of the ship. If the
trip around the Horn accomplishes for
these three classes of people what it is
intended to accomplish (and if it does
not, nothing will),the pale clerk comes
back a hale and hearty fellow with an
appetite that strikes terror to the heart
of his landlady and a grip. that makes
his friend wince as he shakes hands
with them; the drunkard comes back
with his passion for liquor in subjqec-
tion, and the love-sick youth retur s
gladly to inarry the heiress and willin-
ly forget the French chambermaid.4

A Sentinel Cat.
It was at one of these hydraulic
mines that the fugitive cat had found
friends; and as after several visits she
lay watching their operations, 'she
seemed to reason it all out in her own
mind that as soon as the great -dirt-
bank opposite her showed signs of giv
ing way under the action of the water
forced against it, the men would rush
for shelter to the shanty near 1)y, to
which, of course, she too would scam-
per to escape the falling earth. S*,
reasoned pussy, if these kind friends of
imine are always in danger from these
tumbling-down banks, why cannot I
in return for their kindness, watch the
dirt-banks and give them proper
Now, as you all know, there is noth-
ing a, cat dislikes so much as water;,
just watch your kitty shake her paws3
when she steps into a puddle, and see
how disgusted she is if a drop of
water falls on her nose or back. But.
this Sierra Nevada pussy was a most
conscientious cat. She felt that it was
her duty to make some sacrifice for
her friends, and so, after thinking it
all over, she took her place right on
top of thenozzle of the "monitor" (as
the big iron pipe through which the
water is forced is called), and here, in
spite of occasional and most unwel-
come shower-baths, she would watch
for the first movement) of the falling
bank, when away she would go like a
flash with all the miners ht her heels
until they all reached the shelter of
the hut. So faithfully did she perform
her self-imposed task that.' in a little
while the men gave up their precau-
tion of keeping one eye on the danger-
ous slide and waited for puss to givd

the signal. As soon as they saw her
spring down from the comfortable bed
which the miners had made for her on
the "monitor," they would all cry,
"The cat! the cat!" and start on a run
Sfor the shanty. And it was at jusl
such a moment that' I came to the
mine and encountered this most con,
scientious cat leading her friends to
safety.-St, Nicholas.

Let me see-where was it that I
first met her? Oh, yes, it was under'
the superb arches of High Bridge,
boating by moonlight. A globe of
reddish pearl. slowly ascended out of
the East-the shadows of the great
bridge resting softly on the mirror-
like surface of the Hudson river; the
S sound of a flute played softly afar off,
and all of a sudden the keel of my
boat came sharply in contact with
somebody else's oars.
S "Hallo, youl" cried out a clear inci-
sive'young voice. "Where ared you
going to? Why don't you look which
way you are steering?"
"Charley Dresden!" cried out I, lit-
tle heeding the torrents of obloquy he
was beginning to heap upon me.
"Old Mot more," he responded joy-
oously. "Why, who on earth would
have thought of finding you dreaming
on Harpiemt River. Here! Come into
my boat; hitch on your old craft be-
hind; and let me introduce you to Miss
Sophy Adriance."
SI looked as sharply at Miss Sophy as
Sthe moonlight and my own modesty
would let me, for I knew that she,was
,the especial admiration of my friend
Charley Dresden.
She was pretty,, slight, round and
rosy, with china-blue eyes, a dimple in
either cheek, and golden-brown hair
torn in long, loose curls. There was

with perfect sincerity.

which he took from his inner vest
pocket. "What do you think of that
for an engage nent ring?"
.' A tee diamond," .said I, putting
my head critically on one side; "and
fancifully set.",, '
\. "We're to be married in October,"
said Charley, lowering his voice to the
most confidential tones. "It might
have been sooner if 5 hadn't under-
taken that business in Europe for our

by October, and ;the money I shall
make will be acceptable toward fitting

I 'Ispent an evening with her after-
ward, at the genteel boarding house
where ,she and her mother-a nice,
bright-eyed little woman, the, full-.
blown rose to correspond with Sophy's
budding loveliness--dwelt in the cosi-
S est of apartments, furnished in dark'
Blue reps, with a turn-up bedstead, in-
geniously disguised as a high-backed
sofa, and canaries and geraniums in
the windows.
"It is so kind of you to come," said
Sophy, within a gentle pressure of the
hand when I went away. "I am so
S glad to welcome Charley's friends."'
And I felt that I could cheerfully`
sit through another evening of com-
Smonplace chit-chat and photograph al-
S bums for such a reward as that.
S Well, Charley Dresden went away,
S and as he didn't particularly leave
S. ophy Adriance in my charge, I didn't
,feel called upon to present myself, at
Sthe genteel boarding house, I sup-
p.- osed, naturally enough, that all was

S TAl2pA, next to St Augustine, with its broad, vide streets and mammoth shade trees, naval reservation, wharves and shipping iv
probably one o the quaintest, old-fashioned towns in the State. During the past summer a number of first-class hotels have been rted,
md the tourism will now find ample accommodations. This bay is not even surpassed by that of Naples,
KISS30MEE CITY, situated at the head of the romantic Lake Tohopekaliga, with its beautiful Ulue waters, lovely islands and semi
tropical shrubbery, fishing, boating and hunting, hard, solid roads, etc., is the basis for the immense operations of the Disston Drainage
Companies, where you wiI find their shipyard. The taurist will find the best of accommodations.
ORLANDO, the county seat of Orange county, almost imbedded in a bower of fragrant, orange trees, tasty residences, dlear water
lakes and comfortable hotels will assist in making you enjoy a short visit.
MAITLAND and W TEIPARK, around which is a chain of lovely lakes, upqn the shores of which are numberless bearing and jut
coming into bearing oraine groves, and in the midst of them you will find scores of pretty residences. They have become popular resorts
for the winter traveler in. this land of sunshine.
ALTAMONTE, with an elegant, well managed hotel. street car ling, broad half-mile boulevard, lined on each side with trees, is situated
upon a high hill overlooking lovely lakes, and is in the very center of the resonant pine woods. Quite a large number of Eastern capitalist
have.cosy cottages surrounded by orange groves here. '
SANFORD, the head of large steamboat navigation on the St: John's river, the starting point for excursions to the Upper St. ol'l s,
Halifax and Indian river countries. In the vicinity of Sanford will be found Gov. Sanford's celebrated Blllair grove, the well-known
Speer grove and Fort Reed, which was at one time the basis of operations for Gen. Winfield Scott's troops in their operations against the
Semm oles. Sanford is well supplied with all grades and classes of hotels, and is well worth visiting.

SLONGWOOD, tha junction of the Florida Midland railroad, has had a new hotel erected this season., Around Longwood will be found
some of the handsomest orange groves, a number of lovely lakes, and pretty winter residences. This is the starting point for stage lines to
Apopka, and is well worth visiting. .

"Very well,", said John; "Farmer
Drake wants a hand to help clear up
the maple hills this winter--'ll engage
with him. My Meta shall have a good
home somewhere"
When Mrs. Briggs heard that John,
Perkins had rented the little ope-
storied cabin by the railroad, and fur-
nished it for his bride, she shool her
head forebodingly.
"If Meta can put up with a hofe like
that, she'hain't no proper pride," said
Bdt Meta was as happy as a lark.
It was a humble home, but it was
her own. And John came home to it
every night, with a face as cheerful as
the dawn.
"I wish it was a palace, puss, for
your sake," said he.
"I couldn't be happier, John, if it
was," Meta brightly answered.
"And you don't mind your Cousin
Briggs passing you in the street, with-
out speaking to you?"
"Not in the least, if you don't mind
Deacon Perkins returning your letters
"He is an ill-tempered old crab," said
John, with a hearty laugh.
"And she," merrily retorted Meta,
"is a venomous old gossip."
While the public opinion of Yellow
Plains unanimously condenined Mr.
and Mrs. Perkins to the poor-house in
the course of 4 brief time,
"He hasn't a cent of capital," said
one neighbor.
"And she ain't no management and
never had," said another.
"Buys baker's bread, and makes her,
pie-crust with butter instead o' drip-
pin's," said Mrs. Briggs. "Did any
one ever hear of such shiftlessness? I,
for one, wash my hands of them."
Until, one day, Deacon Perkins died
sitting in his chair, with his spectacles
on his nose.
"We'll go to the funeral, Meta," said
John to his wife. "Of course he has
left all his money to the Gattawooche
Indian Mission, as he always said he
would. But he was my uncle, after
"Very well," said Meta. "We'll go."
All the neighborhood was there, of
course. The richest man in Yellow
Plains did not depart this life every
day. But every one looked coldly up-
on the young couple as they entered,
and Mrs. Briggs studiously evaded
When the burial ceremonies were
over, Mr. Briggs sidled up to the law-
yer, a fat man, with a shining bald
head and a white moustache.
"It's about the mortgage, Squire,
Coyte,"' said he. "That one that Dea-
con Perkins had on our farm, I do
hope the Gattawoochee Indians won't
be particular about takin' it up jest
yet, because times is. hard, and I ain't
,noways prepared. The interest is a
little behind, to be sure, but-"
"What have the Gattawoochee In-
dians got to do with it?" said the
squire, crisply.
"Why, they're the heirs, folks tell
me," said Mr. Briggs, uneasily twirl-"
ing his thumbs. "
",Not at all," said Mr. Coyte. "The
Gattawooche Indian will was destroyed
long ago; and Mr. Perkins never
made another. The heir to all the
property is the next of kin, his nephew,
John Perkins."
Public opinion changed as quickly
as only public opinion can do, when'
this piece of news became bruited
Everybody discovered all of a sud-
den that they had always sympathized
with the dear young couple-that John
Perkins was a noble fellow, and his
wife Meta one of the salt of the egrth.
And Mrs. Briggs came jkumbly to

the redbrick mansion on the hill to
See Meta, and beg her to Intercede
with her husband in their behalf.
"About the mortgage," said she,
"tihat Deacon Perkins had on our farm.
It's over-due, and Briggs hasn't been
as regular With the. interest as I could
have wished; but I do hope, Meta, h^
won't be hard with us!"
It was a bitter .pill for Mrs. Briggs
to swallow, but Meta did ,not exult
over her fallen foe.
"Of course he will not be hard with
you, Cousin Briggs," said she, kindly.
"Are we not relations ? And now you
must sit down and have a cup of tea
with us, and John will send the box-
wagon down for your,husband to come
and spend the evening."
The tears came into Mrs. Briggs!
"I do feel sort o' faint," said she. "I
never slept none last night, thinking'
what would become of us if the old
home was took away. But I'm all
right now, Meta, thanks to you!"
And she said, when she got home to
her fireside:
"If ever coals of fire was heaped on
a human head, Meta Perkins heaped
'em on mine this day." i

Mrs. Briggs had made a mistake.
She owned as much, herself. fAnd a
mistake must be very patent, indeed,
before Mrs. Briggs would own to it.
MFor she was one of those high-nosed,
o-mineering females who pretend to
an almost superhuman foresight, and
Believe that they can read character as
if it were an open book.
xIinever'was so disappointed in a
girl in my life," said Mrs. Briggs. "I
Itought she had some grit about her.
But, there! I might as well have an
'pld dish-rag in my kitchen as Meta
Meta herself, if the truth were to
Sbe told, was equally disilluzionized.
She had fancied that life in the coun.-
.try was all roses, new-mown hay and
Snightingales; and when it came to get-
ting up before daybreak, churning by
the half-hour in a blue-nmold-smelling
cellar, scrubbing kitchen floors and
baking hot-cakes for a tableful of
jahirt-sleevef farm hands, she was com-
'; fpletely tggen aback.
". .There were no lanes wherein to lin-
ger at dusk (Mr. Briggs was a great
S;deal too careful of his land to let any
P art of it-run to waste).no picturesque
old well-sweeps or ivy-clad ruins.
Cabbages grew in rows; onion
i. patches flung their perfume on the air,
SAnd directly in front of the main door
here was a field of monster tobacco
i "And ef you've got any time to
spare," sa&4lMr. Briggs, "you'd better
lay it out in pickin' them plaguy big
S: wborms off the terbacket, instead o'
S cuttin' round the country arter wild-
SMeta had been a shop-girl in a Bridge-
port store before she came to her Cousin
S Briggs'. Her health had failed; the
doctor had advised country air, new
milk and change of scene.
Mrs. Briggs, on being written to, had
unwillingly consented that Meta
- shouldd spend the summer there.
"She must be a poor creetur, indeed,
l It she can't earn her board and a little
S jpOr--intoathe bargain," said Mrs..
1 Briggs, who.was one of those griping,
grindingtasdkmistresses who think of
trade and profit alone.
ut Meta had not passed triumphant-

through the ordeal. Perhaps she
had not fully regained her strength.
Perhaps she had become discouraged
with the endless treadmill of work
which Mrs.,Briggs provided for her.
She was a pale, pretty girl, with fair
Shair, large, sorrowful blue eyes, and a
S color that came and went with flicker-
I ng brilliance.
"And it's .my "opinion," said Mrs.
Briggs, who was in the habit of flying
around the house with her head tied
Srup in a cotton pocket-handkerchief,
"that she spends a deal too much time
a-fixin' up "and prinkin' before the
glass-white lace- at her neck every
;,, day agd a ribbon bow and white
f" apronu, of an afternoon. Checked
Sgingham is good enough for me, and it
ought to be for her!"
'At the end of the first month, Mrs.
,- Brggs'told Meta, with engaging frank-
n hess, that she had not proved equal to
-he emergency,
"< "I guiess we don't want you here no
S 'more," said Mrs. Briggs. "You ain't

I got no more strength than a rabbit,and,
pnnyway, there ain't no calculation
About you. You may do very well as
a itoregal but you won't never earn
-your bread at general housework."
. Meta sighed.
"But what am I to do?" said she.
'Where am I to go ?"
'That'syour affair," said Mrs.Briggs.
And then she went to take her
4' bread out of the even.
S. John Perkips, the nephew of the old
- 'eacon who lived -in the brick house on
AtOhe hill,, and had more money than the
best arithmeticiann in Yellow Plains
could count, came the next day to drive
Meta and her poor little trunk to the
John had seen Meta at church. He
had stood beside her more than once
at singing-school; and one night, when
the cattle were obstreperous, he had
gome to the rescue, and helped Meta
ilrive then home.
So, when Farmer Briggs sent over
,word that his horse was lame, and
Asked for the loan of Deacon Perkins'
(roan cob to carry Meta Milton to the
;i station John himself had volunteered
Sto act as charioteer.
", "Going away, hey?" said John,when
%,they had ridden a short distance in si-
,' "Yes," said Metn, sady, "I am go-
: ig away."

"Didn't like the folks?" said John.
"I tried to like them," said Meta;
"but Mrs. Briggs was not suited with
me. The washings were too heavy,.
and it gave me a pain in the side to
lift the tubs."
'"You do look rather slim," observed
And he chewed a straw in silence
for some time before he asked, -with
some abruptness:
"And where are you bound for?"
"I don't know," said Meta. "I can't
go back to the store because my place
is filled up; and it's very hard to get
work anywhere at this time of year.
The doctor said I ought to stay a year
at least in the country; but Mrs.
Briggs has got another girl and-"
Here John Perkins suddenly arrest-
ed the course of the roan-cob, and be-
gan t-rning him scientifically around.
"Dear dear!" said Meta, "have we
got into the wrong road?"
"No," said John Perkins. "Not as
I know of. But if the doctor said you
ought to stay a year, then a year you
"But where?" said Meta.
"With usl" said John Perkins. "I've
took a notion to you, Meta. The first
time I ever set eyes on you, I said, to
myself, 'Here's the gal for mel' And
if you'll marry me, Meta, I'll do my
best to take care of you and be a good
husband to you."
"Marry you!" repeated Meta, and
she looked timidly into. John Perkins
honest gray eyes, and then she added:
"Yes, Mr. Perkins, I will!"
"Shall we\ go right to the parson's?"
said John.
"I-I suppose so," said Meta.
"It's the best way," said John. "If
I begin a job, I generally like to go on
with it."
So they were married. Meta went
back to Mr. Briggs' house, until her
young husband could break the news
to his uncle. Mrs. Briggs received the
bride with some faint semblance of
"John Perkins is a likely fellow"
said she, "and the deacon is the richest
man in Yellow Plains. I will allow,
Meta, that you haven't done badly for
yourself. If you'd told me what you
was caldulatin' for---"
"But I was not calculating,", said
Meta, indignantly. "I never thought
of such a thing, uritil John asked me
to be his wife."
"That'll do to tell, said Mrs. Briggs'
with a dry chuckle.
Meanwhile, John went bravely to
' his uncle' .
"Uncle," said he, "I guess you'll
have to spare me a bigger room arter
this." ;
Deacon Perkins, a dried-up, with-
ered old man, with a strong likeness to
the chimpanzee tribe, looked up from,
his account-book with a snarl, which
revealed a set of ragged, yellow teeth.
"A bigger room ?" said he. "What
for ?"
"There's at least a dozen rooms in
the house you don't use," said John,
"and they'd be all the better for being
occupied; and besides"-as if this was
a mere incidental fac t-"I've been get-
ting married"
The deacon dropped his' spectacle-
case, and as John picked it up and
handed it back to him, he added: /
',"To Meta Milton."
The deacon's little eyes glittered like
very small gas-lamps, seen through a
November fog.
you'vee married her, have you ?"
said he.
"Yes, sir," said John.
"Well, then," said the deacon, "you
can take her somewhere else and sup.
port her, for I'll never see nor speak
to either one nof you again as long as

I live!" ..
"Do you really mean it, uncle?" said
"Am I in the habit of joking?" said
Mr. Perkins, with an ugly grin, that
made him more chimpanzee-like than
ever. "If you're so very independent,
you can go and hang out'your flag of
freedom at your leisure!"
This ,was rather hard on John, who
had always been, taught to regaTd him-
self as his uncles adopted child.
But he was too proud to sue for a
rich man's favor.,
"Just as you please, sir," said he.
"But won't you let me bring Meta to
see you?"
"No, I won't!" said the deacon.
"Oh,.John, I have ruined you!" said
Meta, when he came back to tell the
tale. '
"Ruined me, puss?" said he aheer-,
fully--"not a bit of it! You've been
the making of me. It ain't good for
nobody to hang on the coat-skirts of a
Srich man. I'm more independent now
than I have been for ten years. If
Mrs, Briggs will let us stay here for a
few days-" -
"I couldn't, ,possibly!" said Mrs.
Briggs, freezing visibly. "If your
good, pious uncle discountenances you,
it ain't for me to set myself up ag'in,
his judgment."

Snd 500 from Key West. It is the great dis-
ributing point for tourists and health-seek-
ers, upwards of a hundred thousand of these
classes visiting it annually. It is likewise
the principal distributing point for freights,
both by water.and rail. It has a perfected
service of water, gas, telephone and street
railways, and the electric light is being more
extensively adopted with each recurrence of
the season. It has three, dailies and half a
dozen weekly papers, and there are churches
and schools on every hand. Appropriations
lave been made for the erection here of
governmentt buildings, and the mouth of the
'er is being continually improved through
)ropriations made for the purpose, the
idly increasing importanceAf the point as
rt of entrance and clear l necessitat-
it. There are miles of wharves along the
>r front about which there is always col-
,ed a large number of steamers and sailing
ft from all portions of the Union and
m foreign countries. One of the heaviest
ticles of export is yellow pine lumber, for
e moving of which lumber trains run in
er the various lines of road regularly the
ar round. Log trains, running in like
nanner, supply the many local mills along
he river banks. The packing and, shipping
f fruits is another important and extensive
industry, products of this character making
p a great bulk of the freights of river lines
nd-railroads during the season. There are
probably not less than 4 hundred steamers,
of various tonnage and finish, from the
largest to the smallest and from the finest to
the most common, plying on the St. John's
and putting in and out at this point, besides
the steamers of ocean lines. This is virtually,
one of the termini of at least seven lines of
railroad, with as many more tributary to
them, and through passenger cars come in
from all the principal cities of the United
States. The manufacturing interests are
locally represented in various important in-
dustries. The local hotel facilities are world-
wide in their reputation, amplified to meet
the ever increasing demands of growing visi-
tations and unexcelled by any. The largest
firms, in the State, wholesale and retail, are
found here. Itis headquarters for almost
every important enterprise growing out of a
landed interest. It is the centre of important
State agencies of almost every character. It
is the most expensively and substantially
built up of any town in the State of which it
is the acknowledged metropolis, and has
more improvements now going on in it than
any other place. By actual record it is the
healthiest city of its size in America. It has
a perfect system 6f sanitation and fire pro-
tection, Taxation is not burdensome. Its
present population, is about 25,000, which is
rapidly increasing.

Wm. h. Wood, o as just
returned from Florida. He says that
he has spent several seasons there for
the sole purpose of catching a tarpon
with rod and reel, as such an event
had never been recorded. This season
he has been successful, and has
brought back to this city a monster
tarpon caught in Tarpon Bay, about
three miles south of Punta Rassa,
Fla. The fish is five feet, nine inches
in length, and when caught weighed
93 pounds. At the time of the cap-
ture Mr. Wood was fishing from a
small boat. He had a twenty-one reel
with a line 1,200 feet long, and a large
sized slue hook with a brass safety
chain two feet long. He used a mul-
let for bait.
When the tarpon was hooked, it
was with a sudden jerk that the reel
commenced running out with great
rapidity. When seventy-five feet had
been told dht the immense fish jump-
ed six feet out of the water, and
plunging deep under the surface, drag-
ged the boat rapidly along. The race
was continued for half a mile, when
the fish became exhausted and was
gaffed and towed ashore.--N. Y. Sun.
The Canal Work.
Late and reliable news from the At-
lantic Coast Canal Company's work
informs us that the Chester (the dip-
per dredge) and Dredge 1, both on the
Mat48As side, are being thoroughly
overataied and will soon be again at
work. Contractor Fox has almost fin-
ished the cutting of the canal down
to the 'water level and to-day Presi-
dent Westcptt, Colonel OBrien, Colo-
nel Colton,tPitt Cooke and the com-
pany's engineer corps will leave St.
Augustine to survey the Haulover
neck between the Lagoon and Indian
River, taking with them also Contrac-
tor Fox and his Italians to grade down
to water level the canal at that point.
Colonel Colton states that they will
probably build the new dredges with
Improved machinery to push on the
This is a most important work for
the interests of the, whple coast and it
is with the greatest pleasure we hail
these signs of increased activity in it.
SThe only fault we. have ever found
with it,is it has not kept pace with our
increasing necessities for transporta-
4tion for which the difficulties of the
work, and not the desires of the c'm-
pany, alone are responsible. So nlmuch
of vital importance hangs upon this
canal's successful completion that the
managers of the company must for-
give our anxiety for its speedy open-
ing and permit us to urge them to ev-
Sery possible effort.-Halifax Journal,

How General Scott Hanged Desertors.
At the battle of Cherabusco in the val-
ley of Mexico, one of those series of bat-
tles which took place before the capital
was captured, occurred one of the most
impressive acts of the entire war. I
mean as to its effect upon the men of the
army. It was one of those events which
carried instant conviction to the minds
of the soldiers that discipline and alle-
giance to the flag were of paramount
importance. After a desperate struggle
the works were carried, and among the
captured were found a number of de-
serters, men who joined the Mexicans
and served the guns against their own
comrades, and the full force of 1heir aid
is apparent whenti itsds known that they
were aearly all trained artillerists. On
the discovery being made intense indig-
nation prevailed, and nothing but the
strictest discipline and prompt obedience
to orders prevented the men from deal-
ing out instant vengeance upon the de-
But a drum-head court-martial decided
with due formality; their fate, which was
to be hanged, ignominiously, in the pres-
ence of a'A the army then at that point
assembled. It must be understood that
a portion of the forces were then

engaged with the enemy at Chepul-
tepec, that almost inaccessible fort-
ress and very stronghold of
the enemy, holding farther advances
upon the city, and that the most
desperate engagement was then unde-
cided. The men were drawn up in due
order, each with a rope around his neck
-thirty deluded victims about toreceivq
merited punishment for basely deserting
the flag and turning the enemy's guns
against their own comrades. The officer
in charge, upon whom devolved the duty
cast a quick glance in the direction of
Chepultepec. Suddenly a thought
seemed to impress him, and he said:
"Let them stand till they shall see the
American flag upon the heights of Che-
pultepec." With breathless anxiety they
waited. It was a hard fought battle,
the final result being doubtful. Many
brove men went down to rise no more,
and many a man carried the wounds
there received through life to his grave.
The gallant Colonel Ransdm, of the
New England regiment, yielded his life:
Captain Mayne Reid, whom I knew, and
others, were wounded, and were among
;-the first to enter the works.
Suddenly a shout went up that carried
relief to some, at least, of those anxious
watchers and dismay to the hearts of
those men who stood awaiting their
doom. The heights had been carried and
the starry manner floated to the breeze.
All eyes then turned to the sad spectacle
before them. The deserters stood mo-
tionless as statues awaiting the doom
they could not shun. They had taken
the last look of the flag they had sworn
to protect, and were sent "unannointed
and unannealed" to answer to the "last
great roll call."-Boston Post.
In Mexico it is considered ill-bred to
eat anything, even candy, in the streets
or in any place of public resort.

grass; the western channel is the main
river, and is the deepest, the banks are
generally from eight to fifteen feet high
and perpendicular. The southern end
of the Island terminates in a long, nar-
row strip of high, rocky land of only a
few rods in width, and from six to eight
miles long. The rock is formed of com-
minuated shell cemented together by
natural causes and is called by the Span-
iards, coquina, and makes excellent
lime. The island is principally pine
wood land, interspersed with small ham-
mocks and savannas. The savannas are
generally underlaid with marl.
The shores of Indian river, both on
the west side of Merritt's island and on
the main land, are free from swamps and
marshes, and rise at an angle of from
twenty to twenty-five degrees to an ele-
vation of from twenty-five to fifty feet.
In many places the banks are high bluffs.
The country on Merritt's island and the
west shore has the appearance of an end-
less park, the timber being principally
scattering pines, with an undergrowth of
palmettos and grass, interspersed with
an occasional forest of palm, live oak and
other hard wood timbers.
The orange belt is from one to three
miles in width, and is principally on the
west side and near the river. West of
the orange belt are the St. Johns prairies
which are unfit for orange culture, but
afford fine pasturage, and are good for
vegetable and the culture of sugar cane
and hay. The raising of stock, the cul-
ture of oranges and other fruits will be-
come a united industry in this part of
The eastern side of the river is pecul-
iarly adapted to the growth of pine-
apples and cocoanuts. The cocoanut
thrives best near the salt water, and re-
quires a coral sand or lime stone soil.
The beach lands are composed to a very
great extent of coral sand, and commn-
uated sea shell, and are too much exposed
to the ocean winds for oranges.
The river south of Indian-River Inlet,
on the eastern shore, is skirted with a
narrow belt of mangrove timber of only
a.few rods in width, whichis very dense
and almost impenetrable. It is a deep
green the entire year, and presents a beau-
tiful appearance, the strip of land adja-
cent to the ocean between Jupiter Inlet
and the mouth of the St. Lucie River, is
known as Jupiter Island, and is about a
half a mile wide and twenty miles long.
There is some excellent hammock land
upon it, and it is elevated from fifteen to
thirty feet above the ocean. The river
here is called Jupiter Narrows, and is less
than half a mile in width, the western
bank is from forty to fifty feet high, and
covered with a dense low scrub of live
oak bushes not more than two or three
feet high, and when viewed from the Is-
land, these heights remind one of the
green pastures of the north-they are
always of the same color, a beautiful
green. This portion of the river is full
of oysters, and the Inlet is the finest fish-
-ing on the entire coast. On the bank of
the river at various places are large
mounds of clam and oyster shells, the
largest of them is near Jupiter Inlet and
is nearly a quarter of a mile'long, and
about forty feet high. Atthe north end
or head of the river are somefine lihve oak
.and palm hammock lands, very rich and
" suitablt-ftur--oi B-^&-g--e3;- s',ii-u c,
and garden vegetableF. This pan|,f the
river has been neglected to a great ex-
tent, as the lands are held in large tracts,
and are principally Spanish grants, owned
by heirs who are not living in Floriat
and do not desire to sell. Lately some
of those grants have been cut up and di-
vided among the owners, and are being
offered for sale.
For winter residences there isno place in
Florida where nature has provided super-
ior sources of enjoyment;the climate,from
October to May is a rprpetual Indian
summer, commingled with the balmiest
days of spring, seldom interrupted by
storms, and with only occasional
showers; most of the time there is a gen-
tle breeze coming inland from off the
even-tempered waters of the Gnlf stream.
The prevailing winds are easterly, being
the trade winds which extend as far
north as Cape Canaveral, and are per-
ceptible at times as far north as New
Smyrna, and even St. Augustine. The
nights are cool, even in summer time--
the atmosphere invigorating and health
restoring, mineral and other springs are
frequent, many of them possessing med-
icinal properties; game is abundant, bear,
deer, quail and wild turkeys in the ham-
mocks and piney woods; duck on the
lakes and river, green turtle and fish of
the finest quality, abound in the utmost
profusion. All of these with its beauti-
ful building sites, its superior advantages
for surf-bathing and boat sailing, the ab
sence of swamps and marshes will even-
tually cause the banks of this magnifi-
cent sheet of water to become one vast

villa of winter residences extending its
entire length.
For the gardeners and horticulturists,
it offers superior inducements. The
more tender and delicate of the tropical
fruits grow and thrive. The cocoanut,
pineapple, guava, mango, avocata and
other tropical fruits, can be successfully
grown anywhere on the east side of the
river south of Cape Canaveral, and on
the west side south of Merrit's Island.
The climate of the east coast of Florida
is tempered by the Gulf stream, the in-
fluence of the Gulf stream on climate
and vegetation is well known; it is the
Gulf stream which gives to the Bermuda
Islands off the coast of the Carolinas
their tropical character. There the co-
coanut, coffee and all of the tropical
fruits come to maturity, and New York
city receives from those islands its main
supply of early garden vegetables. The
Gulf stream is a great river in the ocean
and commences off the mouth of the
Amazon River, flows through the Carib-
bean Sea, and strikes the western coast
of the Island of Cuba, runs along the
northern coast of that island, between
it and the Florida reef, as it emerges
from the straits of Florida it flows in
a northeasterly direction among the Ba-
hama and Bermuda Islands, and laves
the eastern coast of Florida from Cape
Florida to Jupiter Inlet; its temperature
at Cape Florida is from 79 degrees to 80
degrees the entire year. It strikes the
coast of Norway and flows southward
among the British Islands and gives to
Ireland its peculiar verdure; it flows
along the western coast of Portugal, and
among the Azores Islands, and from
thence crosses the Atlantic to the coast of
South America, making a circuit of the
North Atlantic ocean. The finest oranges
in the world are grown near the Gulf

stream, the Oporto orange of Portugal,
the St. Michael orange of the Azores,
the Bahia orange of Brazil and the
Indian River orange of Florida,
have a reputation unequaled
elsewhere. The east coast of
Florida is warmer in the same parallel of
latitude, than the West. During the
early Indian wars in Florida the govern-
ment established military posts in every
part of the Peninsula, and theometrical
observations were kept at their different
posts for the purpose of ascertaining its
climatology; those observations are on
record in the Smithsonian Institute. The
thermometer goes as low at Tampa on
the west coast in winter as at New Smyrna
on the East coast, although New Smyrna
is nearly one hundred miles north of
Tampa. The thermometer goes as low
at Fort Meade as at St. Augustine; Fort
Meade is nearly east of Tampa, but it
does not have the water protection of
Tampa and is more elevated. The winter
of 1884 was unusually severe, and the
guava trees and pineapples, and even the
young orange trees were uninjured at
Bartow and Fort Meade, while at Eau
Gallic and the lower end of Merritt's
Island the cucumber blossoms were un-
injured. Fort Pierce is nearly opposite
Indian River Inlet. According to the
military record the thermometer averaged
as follows: January, 62.7 degrees; Feb-
ruary, 64.4 degrees; March, 69.8 de-
grees; April, 73.6 degrees; May, 76.9
degrees; June, 79 degrees; July, 82.5
degrees; August, 82.4 degrees; Septem-
ber, 80 degrees; Octo'ber, 75 degrees;
November, 68.5 degrees; December, 62.6
As the trade winds prevail and come
from off the pure waters of the ocean,
the Indian River country is free from all
malaria diseases-a more healthy region
cannot be found. There is fine building
stone in various localities on the river
bank. The principal quarries are at
Rock Ledge, the south end of Merritt's
Island, at Eau Gallic and Jupiter Island.
It is a lime stone of the variety known
as coquina, of which Fort Marion at St.
Augustine is constructed.
There are two railroads in process of
construction, one from Palatka to Titus
ville, near the head of Indian River via
Daytona, the other from Leesburg via
Tavares and Orlando to Eau Gallie; the
coast line of inland navigation is nearly
completed from St. Augustine to Indian
River and steamboats will be running
this route from St. Augustine to Jupiter
by November next. When this work is
completed there willbe an inside steam-
boat navigation from Fernandina to Key
West. This route is very direct and
when completed the distance will be less
from Eau Gallic to Jacksonville than
from Sanford to Jacksonville. There are
seventeen postoffices on Indian River;
Haulover, Titusville, City Point, Rock
Ledge, Georgiana, Tropic, Eau Gallie,
Melbourne, Malabar,Micco, New Haven,
Narrows, St. Lucie, Eden, Waveladd
and Jupiter.
Haulover is the northernmost, and is
located at the canal connecting Indian
river with the Hillsboro, and is near the
celebrated Dummitt grove. There area
number of fine >orange groves in its im-
mediate vicinity.
Aurantia is on the west side of the
river and i-m ui rounded.by the fin--
hammock lands in the State. The pal-
metto here are from seventy-five to nine-
ty feet high. Titusville is the county
seat of Brevard county, has a court
hope, two hotels, church, several
stores, a newspaper (the Florida Star)j
a land office, (James Pritchard & Co., a
perfectly reliable firm who are always
willing to give information in regard to
the country).
There is a daily mail to Enterprise, and
a semi-weekly mail to St, Augustine, and
it is the distributing point for all of the
other postoffices South on Indian river.
The mail is carried twice a week from
this place the entire length of the river,
and connects with the mails of Jupiter,
which "is carried from there to Lake
Worth and Biscayne once a week. The
mail will be carried by steamer from St.
Augustine as far south as -Eau Gallic,
daily, after next July; and from Eau
Gallie to Jupiter three times a week. A
steamer runs twice a week from Sand-
ford to Salk Lake, and passengers and
freight are carried across from Salt Lake
to Titusville by teams, a distance of
eight miles.
City Point has one store, and in its
immediate vicinity are some fifne orange
Rock Ledge is the principal place of
transit for freight and passengers cross-
ing from the St. Johns river to Indian
river. There are three stores, two hotels,
a newspaper office (the Indian river
Sun), and is in the midst of some of the

best orange groves on the river.
Georgiana and Tropic are both on
Merritt's island; there are no stores at
either place, there is a tin shop at Geor-
giana. The people ate principally en-
gaged in growing pineapples.
Eau Gallie is located on the west bankA
of Indian river, and on the north side of
Eau Gallie, a stream from which it takes
its: name, and is immediately opposite the
mouth of Banana river. I ndian river at
this place is a little over two miles wide,
and the belt of land between it and the
ocean less than a mile. The Eau Gallic
river at its mouth has high rocky bluffs
on each side, from which the stream
takes its name (Eau Gallie, rocky water).
It is navigable for steamers for about
two miles, and has one of the best
water powers in the State when im-
proved. It is only six miles from Lake
Washington, which is the head of navi-
gation on St. Johns; at this point the
proposed canal is located, connecting the
St. Johns with Indian River. This town
has been recently laid out and is on high
elevated ground overlooking the river,
and the ocean can be seen from the sec-
ond story windows. The land rises from
the river at an angle of about twenty-five
degrees and runs back at that angle for
one thousandleet, and spreads out into a
plain. The country back is principally
piney woods, with a hammock of live
oak and hickory on the Eau Gallie River.
The location for a town is the finest on
the river. There is one store, a saw mill
with a shingle machine and plainer at-
tached, and also machinery to manufac-
ture orange and vegetables crates attach-
ed. There is a boat yard for the build-
ing and repairing boats, also the land
office of W. H. Gleason& Company, who
investigate land titles and have for sale
the lands at Eau Gallie, and other lands
on Indian River.
Melbourne is four miles south of Eau

Receiving as I do, daily, letters from
all parts of this country and Europe
making inquiries relative to the soil,
climate, products and also the most de-
sirable route from different points to the
Indian River country, which is now
attracting such universal attention, and
as I have- not the time to devote to an-
swering all such inquiries in full to their
satisfaction, or my own, I avail myself of
the columns of your valuable paper to
give to the public a description of this
portion of Florida, and- also such infor-
mation as persons contemplating settling
in this portion of the country desire to
have. Persons who have written me for
such information will please accept a copy
of this number of the TROPICAL PARA-
Having a residence of eighteen years
in Florida, I have at different times vis-
ited every portion of the State, and have
become familiar with the various re-
sources of each particular section and lo-
cality. Although Florida has many
bright, many beautiful places in which
a stranger may make a pleasant and
profitable home. I have come to, the
conclusion that no place in Florida of-
fers as many inducements, as many at-
tractions, not only to the settler, who is
seeking a permanent home for his fam-
ily, to the invalid in search of health,
and those whodesire a winter home, as
the Indian River country.
Indian River has long been celebrated
fIor its oranges, which have the reputa-
tion of being the finest in the world, and
bring in the city of Jacksonville, from
fifty to seventy-five cents per hundred
more than oranges from any other sec-
Indian River, as it is called, is a sound,
and lies parallel with the Atlantic coast
and is separated from the ocean by a
narrow strip of land varying from a few
rods to three miles in width; it is a
sheet of pure tide water, salt, clear and
transparent; it has two inlets ,from the
ocean-Indian River Inlet, which is
about one hundred miles form its north
end or head, and Jupiter Inlet at its ex-
treme southern end. From its north
head or end to within twenty-five miles
of Jupiter Inlet it is from one to six
. miles wide, from Jupiter Inlet to the
mouth of the St. Lucie River, a distance
of abou-ttwe t-yT-ve-miles, it ais-rom-
one-fourth of a mile to a mile'in width,
and is known as Jupiter Narrows. Its
course is from northwesterly to south-
easterly, and is very straight. A cord
drawn from near its north head, one
hundred miles, would not touch either
shore. It is affected very little by the
tide, and the current moves with the
wind. There is seldom more than three
feet difference between extreme low and
high water during the entire year, and
there is very little land ever overflowed
on its banks. Being in the region of the
trade winds, with almost a constant
breeze from the eastward during the day-
time it affords peculiar facilities for sail-
ing up or down, and the people take ad-
vantage of it. Every family has a sail
boat and it i the usual mode of convey-
ance. Every house is either upon the
z iver bank or a short distance up some
navigable stream flowing into it, and
has a boat-landing-it is the Venice of
America; one can seldom look out upon
the water without seeing sail boats sail-
ing both ways, The river is well sup-
plied with the finest of oysters, sea-tur-
tle, and a great variety of fish, among
which are mullet, cavalli, snapper, blue-
fish, sheephead and seatrout. The man-
atee is caught at the mouth of the St.
Lucie River and Jupiter Inlet. Some of
them weigh from fifteen hundred to two
thousand pounds. They are very good
.eating and are found no where else in
the United States. Their / principal
habitat is near the mouths of the tide-
water streams flowing into the Caribbean
sea. They feed on a peculiar grass
called manatee grass, which grows in the
bottom of most all tide-water streams in
tropical countries.
The river is navigable at all seasons of
the year for steamers of light draught,
*and sailing vessels. The inlets from the
ocean are shallow and the bars are con-
stantly changing and are dangerous and
difficult to enter. This has been one
great drawback to the settlement of this
section of Florida, but has now been par-
tially overcome by opening up the navi-
gation of the upper St. Johns river from
Enterprise to Lake Poinsett, which is an
expansion of the St. Johns river. From
Lake Poinsett to Indian river is only
three miles, and most of the goods and
merchandise destined for Indian river go
from Jacksonville by this route, and are
hauled by team from Lake Poinsett to
,Indian river. A new route will soon be

opened along the coast from Fernandina
to Indian river.
North of Indian river and along the
coast is a series of sounds and rivers run-
ning parallel with the coast similar to
Indian river, separated from each other by
short isthmuses; their various channels
are now being connected by a series of
oshrt canals. The work is nearly com-
pleted from St. Augustine to Indian
River and steamboats will be running
from St. Augustine the entire length of
the Indian River by the early spring.
This will be our best and cheapest means
of transportation.
Merritt's Island, which is about forty
miles long and contains about thirty
Thousand acres, is situated in the north-
ern part of the river. The waters on its
east side are from one-fourth of a mile,
S to six miles wide and is known as Bana-
na River. The land along Banana
River on both sides is generally low and
covered with a luxuriant growth of

ffuge Trees Turned to Stone-A Re-
markable Scene in Arizona. '
Lithodendron City as yet does not fig-
ure on the maps of Arizona, writes a
correspondent of the New York Evening
Post. It dwells in the mind's eye of a
mixed lot composed of laymen and sci-
entists, who have pitched several tents
on the banks of the Lithodendron river,
and, baptizing the spot with the limpid
waters; have christened it Lithodendron
City, only to jump the claim on the fol-
lowing morning and found another city
of the same name at night, perhaps thirty
miles away, so that Lithodendron is al-
most anywhere along the banks of that
.river that flows quickly along, like some -.
laggard that has fallen behind the times
and, as if abashed, is stealing on through
scenes that bear the stamp of long ago.
One evening, as Lithodendron had
been founded about the fiftieth time, a
Milesian gentleman, who formed one of
the assistants to the scientific corps of
investigators, was requested to bring in
some wood for the practical purpose of
boiling coffee. Half an hour passed,
and then the woodcutter appeared with
a wild look on his honest countenance.
"Now, ain't it a curious thing," he com-
menced, pointing to the ax, that looked
as if it had been dulled purposely with a
file. "D'ye know, general, forninst in
the old dart, Father Malone, long life to
his worship, told me av a country be-
yand the says where the trees and the
cattle were all turned to stone. 'It's
jokin' ye air,' says I. 'Ye'll live to see
the day I'm not,' says Father Malone;
and more power to him, I've done that
thing. lf produce me resignation av
yer honor'll give me pin and paper and
some one to white; I'm on the home
track the very night. Matter? Look at
the ax I Ivory piece of wood but's turned
to stone I The first bit of av a tree I
found, 1 laid off me coat, a fetched it a
blow, when it flew out of me hands, and
the tree let out a stream of light half a
mile long. I tried five, an' each one
was harder than the other, and in the
bush was stone birds a-sleepin' on the
limbs, and each twig weighed a ton."
Pat was thus the first to discover a
feature of the valley that formed one of
the quests of the party, namely, the fa-
mous fossil forests that have been the won-
der of every one who had visited this
... ...... '. rregion. ,
The slope of the river, here about fifty.
feet in height, presents a remarkable ap-
pearance. Not a green object is to be
seen, but all about, strewn here and there,
__ .some erect and others prostrate, lie myr-
jads of pieces of strong trees, limbs,
tr'-inks and branches of flint-like hard-
nes--the remairL, of a once mighty for-
est. So thick are these, in some places
that one can almost imagine that this is
the bed of some creek with, all its jpol.
ished boulders laid' bare, only that the
remains have all the structural, beauties
that characterized them when alive.
The cause of the wholesale destruction
of the stone forests is undoubtedly due
to the extremes of heat and cold that
have snapped them off and hurled them
to the ground. The soil here is soft and
sandy, with some clay, perfectly adapted
to the preservation of the remains. The
size of some of these trees shows thai
many of thetn might have compared with
the extent sequoia of the National park.
One trunk was 225 feet long and aboul
:five feetin diameter, and so finely pre-
served and photographed in the rock, as
it were, that until the ax glanced from
its flint-like bark and sparks of fire fol-
lowed, one could hardly realize the
change that had taken place. The trunks
that -are broken showL remarkable fea-
tures and a company, it is said, has been
organized to cut them up into. various
articles of ornament, which when pol.
ished present a marvelously beautiful
surface. The color of the wood is pre-
served, and veins of the richest red run
here and there, anon changing to yellow,
gray or blue. The remarkable coloring
!has given rise to some curious and erro-
neous impressions in the mind of the
noble red men (principally Navajoes)
i that summer in the locality. They have
a legend that their forefathers were a
vast and powerful race and that theh
conquered'a mighty giant that lived on
the Lithodendron. The fossil trees they
consider his bones or parts of the skeleton,
and the red stains and even the lava beds
the blood which ran from him.

Wilntering Y Voung Pigs.
Pigs born later than the first of Octo
ber will need good care and skillful man-
agement to keep them in a thrifty, grow-
ing condition through winter. This is
particularly the case if you keep them in
large numbers, and it is a good plan to
sell 'all you can before winter sets in.
People who keep only two or three pigs
to eat up the slops from the house can
handle their late pigs to better advan-
tage than the larze farmer or breeder.
Such young pigs need milk, greasy
water, or broth and bread, or cooked
potatoes, with corn meal pudding: these
are more likely to be liberally furnished
from the kitchen when you have only
two pet pigs than when you have two
score or two hundred.
Whatever method of feeding is
adopted, let it be liberal. Let them have
all the good feed they will eat-no more,
no less. Let them have good, dry, com-
fortable quarters to sleep in, and disturb
them as little as possible. Pigs are in
part hibernating animals. The more
they sleep the better for them and th-ir
owner. "'e do not want ft> fatten pigs
in winter. We simply want to keep
them in healthy, growing condition, and
the fatter they are when winter sets in,
the easier it will be to carry them through
the winter.
Pigs well wintered are in good condi-
tion to thrive well on grass and clover
next summer. They will do far better
on pasture alone than yoling spring pigs.
We are not now advocating having young
pigs come in the autumn, but if youhave
them an4] cannot sell them. or do not
wish to, then take the best of care of
them, and feed liberally. The most
profitable pork we have ever made, was
rom young pigs which had been well
cared for through the previous winter,
and the next summer fattened on clover
pasture.-John Harris, in Americnt Agri-

world, and if feeding on or near the
ground is one reason of their superiority,
iL is an argument for low mangers that
should not be overlooked.
If land is naturally wet and has not
been drained, most farmers think it ex-
actly right for meadow. It will un-
doubtedly pay better tcr mow than to
cultivate in ordinary seasons, as the mea-
dow requires less labor. But the fact
remains that good grass will not long
grow on soil always saturated with stag-
nant water.
A warm soil is quite as important as
fertility in growing a good corn crop.
One of the advantages of stable manure
and greensward plowed under lies in the
fact that their fermentation adds to the
warmth of the soil. The same amount
of plant food furnished in mineral
manures which do not supply heat will
not produce an equal effect.
It is very difficult to keep horses in
basement stables without injuring their
eyes. This is in part due to poor ventila-
tion, but also to the position of basement
windows, which throw a light on the
horse's eyes and cause him to be always
peering, into comparative darkness. A
horse thus treated will be very apt to go
blind after two or three years.
Gas tar will drive away ants, but where
they gather around apple trees, as they
are apt to do, it is a question whether it
is to the advantage of the orchardist to
get rid of them. Ants are very de-
structive to the apple or plant lice which
on apple trees are a frequent cause of
unfruitfulness by destroying the foliage
at a time when it is most needed for
starting the young fruit.
If ::ny one desires to use horses unshod
Ll.t him choose for the purpose thick
skin nted, thick and strong hoofed horses
and he will be able to get on quite suc-
cessfully; but if he choose very thin
skined horses, with thin shelled hoofs,
lie will find them lame at once if used to
any extent on hard roads. The southern
part of .Georgia and Florida are full of
hor es that have never been shod. The
oil is sandy, and there is no need of
One of the strongestpoints in a really
god. cow is that she will continue to
give a good mess of milk during a long
time. Many otherwise good cows fail in
this respect. They give a large quan- f
tit' in the first flow but soon drop off
and are dry half the year. The habit of
the heifer with her first calf fixes her
hab.it as a cow in this regard. It is
therefore not advisable to allow a young
heifer to drop a second calf within a
year of the first. It is better to wait so
as to have the calves fifteen months or,
more apart, in which case the heifer can
be kept in milk a year or more.

Household Recipes and Hints.
Lemon stains on cloth may be removed
by washing the goods in warm soapsuds,
or in ammonia.
A nice dish for breakfast-or for tea-
is made of sweet potatoes boiled. Re-
move the skins, rub the potatoes through
a coarse colander, make into flat cakes,
dip into flour, and fry in hliot butter.
A delicious sauce for plain rich pud-
ding is made by stewing some apples and
grapes until perfectly soft, then rub them
through a-ieve, sweeten, put ilump-
butter in, and if too thin stir in a little

standing a way through the warm weather,
grease them well with mutton tallow,
and before putting them up in the
autumn put then in the yard and build
a fire in them, which will burn off the
tallow. Wash them with soapsuds and
th an polish.them. This is troublesome,
but effecttual.
Excellent pies are made of canned
currants. Take one cupful of them,
half a cupful of sugar, one tablespoon-
Inl of flour, beaten with the yolks of two
f-gs. Bake with an under crust, then
fhost the top with the whites of the two
egra fnd two tablespoonfuls of powdered
sugar. Be sure to beat the sifted flour
with the yolks, then there is no danger
of lumps of undissolved flour spoiling
the good looks of the pie.
Appetizing sauce to be eaten with beef
steak is made of four tablespoonfuls of
butter, one of vinegar or of 'lemon juice,
half ;i teaspoonful of salt, quarter of a
teaspoonful of pepper, and a teaspoonful
of parsley, or a.tablespoonful of tomato
catsup. The butter must not be melted,
but should be beaten to, a cream; this is

A Strange Mania.
There has jnst died in this city, says a
recent New York letter, a man who fix-
edly believed that he was the devil. His
same was Goldberg, and he was a per-
former of sleights. He was a magician,
according to both his show bills and his
own conceit. He had a marvelous dex-
terity in the deceptive handling of cards,
and his tricks with them were far better
than those of any of the more celebrated
showmen whom I have ever seen; but he
was not equally expert in devising or
handling such mechanism as made the
fame of Anderson the wizard, nor was
he the. entertaining talker which we re-
member Heller to have been. The conse-
quence was that Goldberg gained little
prosperity and remained a mere card
manipulator until his mental vagaries
brought him to a lunatic asylum. I re-
member that, during the last summer in
which he was sufficiently sane to be left
at large, he gave exhibitions in the hotal
arlors at country resorts. While at
ong Branch the gamblers who run the
great rells there became acquainted with
Eis slight-of-hand abilities. None of

them, however, though they were in the
dishonest manipulation of cards, could
either imitate or understand the tricks
which he showed them. Charley Reed,
manager of one of the club houses, took
him aside and said to him, "Goldberg,
how much did you make out of the show
you gave ia the Ocean House parlor to-
day?" "Oh, the collection amounted to
$16 about, "was the reply. "You ought to
be ashamed of it," the gambler retorted.
"What's the use of running yourself in
a sort of pass-the-hat show when you
could turn your talent to more profitable
account? Now, I'll give you $200 cash
down if you'll teach me to do that trick
with the four aces." "I couldn't," was
the sober reply, "if you paid me two
millions. I don't know how to do it."
The truth was that the/trick, which con-
sisted in dealing four aces at will from an
apparently well-shuffled pack, depended
chiefly on that dexterous handling of
the cards called palming, but the de-
mented Goldberg was convinced that,
being himself the personal devil, it was
Surely supernatural. All the while that
e was practicing the most delicate and
deceptive manipulation he was unaware
that the results were obtained by trickery
and skill. This was a most peculiar
phase of mania.

Donnybrook Fair.
From an article on "Dublin City," by
Professor Edward Dowden, in the Cen-
tury, we quote the following: "Through
the mirthful eves of Jonah Barrington
we can see the fair itself unshorn of its
splendors. Here are tents formed of
long wattles in itwo rows, inclined to-
gether at the top; over which for cover-
ing are spread patchwork quills, winnow-
ing sheets, .rugs, blankets, old petticoats,
secured by repes of 'hay. A broom head

carded lantern, surmounted by varie-
gated rags torn to ribbons, serve the
purpose of the tavern's ivy bush; a rusty
saucepan or old pot signifies that eating
as well as drinking may be had. Down
the middle what a day since had been
doors and now are tables rest on mounds
of clay, and benches, swaying under the
sitters when their equilibrium becomes
uncertain, rua along supported in like
manner. 'When the liquor got the mas-
tery of one convivial fellow,' says Sir
Jonah, 'he would fall off, and the whole
row generally followed his example; per-
haps ten or even twenty shillelagh boys
were seen en their backs kicking up their
heels, some able to get up again, some
lying quiet and easy, singing, roaring,
laughing or cursing; while others stiil
on their legs were drinking and dancing
and setting the whole tent in motion, till
all began to long for open air, and a lit-
tle wrestling leaping, cudgeling, or
fighting upon, the green grass. The tent
was then cleared out and prepared for a
new company.' A delightful aroma, in
itself nourishing, filled the June air--
mingled turf, whisky, steaming pota-
toes, Dublin Bay herrings, salt beef and
cabbage. At dusk a dozen fiddlers and
pipers would strike up and a row of per-
haps a hundred couple work away at
their jiff steps 'till hey actually fell off
breathless.* Matrons would bring t[he
'childer' to this paradise of cakes and
simple toys, a~nd these infantine revelers
would assist the musicians with popgun
and drum and whistle. Under the sum-
mer moon young men and maidens would
utter their vows and fix the day for going
before Father Kearny, who declared that

'more marriages were celebrated in Dub-
lin the week after Donnybrook fair than
in any two months during the rest of the

A Petrified Girl.
A young lady living in the vicinity of
North East, named Lizzie Patterson, has
been relieved from a life of suffering,
which for fifteen years had not an alle-
viating circumstance. When a girl at
the age of ten she was stricken with
rheumatism. A season of treatment at
the hands of the most skilled physicians
failed to relieve the sufferer. At the age
of fifteen her muscles became so rigid
that the power of locomotion was entirely
destroyed. Since then she was confined
to her bed and chair, and was unable to
do herself the slightest service. Five
years ago the muscle became so hard that
the joints of the lower limbs could not
worlk. The fibrous tissues of the arms
and hands were next affected, so that
they were entirely useless and soon like
the lower limbs were no semblance to
the human anatomy. A year ago the
muscles controlling the head and neck
were contorted so as to draw the head
out of shape. The muscle in the face
then hardened and closed the lower jaw
so tight that the teeth had to be removed
in order to make an aperture through
which food could be introduced.
To give the patient even a moderate
amount of food required three hours'
work, during which time the effort at
swallowing caused excruciating pain.
Vomiting and suffocation finally- caused
death. Miss Patterson was twenty years
of age and at the time of her death she
was actually petrified with disease. The
case is exciting "reat interest in the med-
ical profession.-Cincinnati Commercial-

Holy Tattooing.
The custom of tattooing the body tor
Inerly existed in all parts of Polynesia
but is now generally abandoned, exce]
among the ruder islanders. The proce

first drew the desired pattern upon tt
body of his subject; then taking a fin
toothed comb, made of shell or bone, 1
dipped it into a liquid composed of tl
pulverized coal of the candle-nut an
oil, and placing it on the spot caused
to puncture the skin by a blow with
mallet. Soon a bluish color appeared
under the skin, which did not fade f(
many years. The first marks were macd
about the time of puberty, but so painfu
and even dangerous, was the process
that it was not finished at once, but th(
pattern was elaborated year by year up t
advanced age. The designs were most
arrangements of curved lines, showing
great artistic skill and appearing to th
eye like a drapery of fine lace work. Ofte
figures of men, birds, dogs, fishes

favor was thereby secured' Later, this
conception faded out, and the custom
can be simply a mode of ornamentation
or mark of social distinction. The
chiefs were not tattooed because, them.-
selves partaking of the divine nature,
they did not require it; and the rest were
exempt because they did not deserve it.

Congressional Literature.
"Are any of the members fond o
light reading?" asked a Washington Star
reporter of Mr. Spofford, the librarian
of Congress.
"Yes, there is a great deal of light
reading-novel, poetry and all kinds of
fiction, but chiefly voyages and travels.
Stories of the Arctic regions and narra-
tives of the explorations in Africa' along
the-Congo basin, are much read. But a
peculiar feature is the popularity of
poetry in this Congress. All the British
and American poets are read."
"Are the families of Congressmen
generally fond of'reading?"'
"Yes, notwithstanding the social de-
mands made upon them during their
stay in this city, they read a large num-
ber o'f books. Some of the wives of
Senators and members are close students
of history, and even of theology in some
cases. Then thee is a large amount pf
fiction read by some. Many, also, are
fond of bpoos on art and household
decoration. Many wives study history
and politics for their husbands, always
keeping right up, to the times on all
important questions, so as to help their
husbands in their public labors. Even
Young ladies thus help their fathers
sometimes. /

Madagascar's Topography.
Madagascar consists of a central pla-
teau or highland rising' from 4,000 feet
to 5,000 feet above the lowlands of the
coast, and from this plateau rise occa-
sional volcanic cones, the highest, Anka-
ratra, being 8,950 feet above the sea. The
volcanoes extend from the northern ex-
tremity ofr he island to the twentieth
parallel of south latitude. South of this
appear granitic rocks, at least as far as

twenty-two degrees south latitude. At
higher latitudes than this the rocks of
the interior are practically unknown to
Europeans. To the north of the volcanic
district of Ankaratra there is a tract of
country containing silver, lead, zinc,
and copper ores. As regards building
stones, beside the granite which is so
general, there are vast beds of'sand-
stone and slate between the district of
Ankaratra.and the fossil regions in the
southwest of the central plateau. These
fossils, according to M. Grandidier, the
recent French traveler of the interior,
are referable to'the Jurassic system, and
comprise remains of hippopotami, gigan-
Itic tortoises, and an extinct bird of the
ostrich'species. The coasts of the coun-
try are rich in timber, and it would also
appear that the interior is a good mineral
field. .

nd a red flag fifty cents. The latter
ass are about the toughest-looking out-

The city of Mexico has an excellent
police system. At ni ht there is a po-
eeman at every corner. He never pa-
ols the streets, but has a lantern which
e sets in'the center of the intersecting
reets, and then retires to a convenient
doorway' and sits silent until relieved.
s a consequence there is a row of lan-
rns in the middle of every street. Each
policeman carries a club and a revolver,
ad wears a blanket around his shoul-
ers. The roundsmen who patrol the
reets are mounted, and carry carbines
nd sabers, looking like a cavalrymen.
olicemen are invariably polite, and will
op a street car and assist a lady to enter
as gallantly as the proudest Castilian..
There is a great deal of drnnkenness in
lexico, but very little fighting. The
eons drink pulque, the fermented milk
I the cactus. Itisqueer stuff, and costs
bout three cents -a quart, so
hat it is within the reach
f the poorest. There are
id to be 80,000 pulque shops in Mexico,
nd they are all profitable, even at the
rice of a penny a glass. Two glasses
ill make a peon happy, and three will
ive him the blind staggers; but the
after effects of pulque intoxication are
ot disagreeable, for it leaves no head-
che. '
The stranger in Mexico is always very
thirsty. The' rapid evaporation makes
he mouth and throat dry, and water
urnishes only temporary relief. The
lost refreshing drink is lime juice in
ppolinaris water. All the ice used in
Hexico comes sixty miles, from the top
f Popocatapetl, being,brought down to
he railroad station on the backs of
natives, and costs ten cents a pound'.
From the ,top- of the cathedral spire
you can see the entire city, and the most
striking feature of the view is the ab-
ence of cinfumeys. There- is r-fi-a
chimney in all Mexico, not a stove, or a
grate, or a furnace., All the cooking is
done with charcoal in Dutch ovens, and,
while the gas is sometimes offensive, on
oon becomes used to it. Coal costs $25
Stone, and wood $16 a cord. The former
s imported from England, and the wood
s all brought from the mountains.
On the railroads mesquite is used for
fuel. This shrub abounds on all the
hillsides, and is of very tough fibre.
Fuel constitutes about thirty per cent.
of the entire cost of railway operation.
A railroad manager reports that his pur-
chasing agent secured three hundred
wooden saints for fuel, which he bought
at fifty cents apiece from the natives who
stole them from the churches'.
One of the most curious features of
Mexican life is the manner of conducting
funerals. Some of the funeral proces-
sions go to the cemetery on the street
cars, coffin and all. The poorest people,
who cannot pay for carriages or even
street car fare, carry the dead through
the streets on their shoulders, and bor-
row or hire a coffin for the occasion.
Whien the cemetery is reached and the
obsequies are over, the body is trans-
ferred to a box, if the friends are able to
buy one, or wrapped in a blanket, and
the coffin is returned to its owner. The
scarcity of wood makes coffins expensive.
It is the custom to set photographs of the
dead in the gravestones. Some of the
tombs in the fashionable cemeteries are
very expensive, the beautiful Mexican
onyx being used in the most lavish man-
ner,--ZSew York Sun.
Vulturesoat a Tiger's Carcass.

The tiger is such an object of dread,
that even a dead one will not be touched
by the vultures, so long as the skin re-
mains on it. But the moment the huge
cat is skinned, these scavengers, feeling
assured that it is dead, begin to eat the
carcass. They work with great rapidi-
ty, as may be seen from the following
description of one of their banquets,
written by a sportsman in India; ihe
tiger was unloaded from the elephant's
back in the center of a little clearing in
the forest, and the usual business of
skinning was proceeded with.
As I stood watching, I noticed even
more than the usual number of great
vultures assembhling on the surround-
ing trres, anxiously waiting for the ban-
quet, which experience told them would
soon be theirs.
Directly the carcass, stripped of its
skin, and therefore no longer4an object
of terror, was left, they all descended
upon it in a cloud, and nothing could be
seen but a large heaving mass of feath-
ers, round which two jackals kept trot-
ting humbly, and wagging their little
short tails.
SThey were not, however, suffered to
pick up even the smallest scrap. The
vultures took no notice whatever of
them, but I suppose if they had ventured
to interfere, they would have been set
upon and killed.
I looked at my watch as the first bird
alighted on the body of the tiger, and
found that in exactly twenty minutes
these feathered scavengers had so com-
pletely done their work that there was
nothing but a skeleton left.-Youth'

', The street cars run i groups. Instead t
Sof starting a car every fen minutes from t]
Sthe terminus, three are started together fu
S every half hodr. One car is never seen n
: alone, nor two together, but always three a
in a row, less than half a block apart. M
It requires two conductors to run a car. o
SOne approaches a passenger and sells t
him a ticket. The second one then n
comesin and takes the ticket. In some
respects it is an'improvement on the bell- v
S pun celstem. There are first-class cars s
o -c'tS trtt, 6 *The-former-are- -s
of New York manufacture, and similar c
to those used in that city. The latter g
are of domestic construction, have but d
few windows, and look like the cabooses
used on railroad freight trains. First- s
class fares are sometimes as high as a
twenty-five cents, but are more often .a i
menio (6 1-4 cents), being governed by i
the distance.' Second-class fares are al-
ways one-half the amount of first-class f
fares. Street car drivers carry horns, h
5 .and blow them when they approach
street crossings. The conductors usual- o
ly carry revolvers. Nearly everybody,
in truth, carries a revolver.
',Horseback riding is the' national
amusement, and the streets are full of
,, :horsemen, particularly in the cooler s
S hours 'of the morning and evening. The
proper thing to wear is a wide sombrero,
,very tight trousers of leather or ctas- J
simere, with rows of silver buttons, up ,

solid silver buttons on his trousers $100,
his hat $50, and the rest of his rig in pro-

wealthy parents, is mounted after a simi-
lar fashion, even to the revolver and

The Mexican ladies do not ride any
more than their sisters in the United
States. Social etiquette prohibits this,
recreation, unless they have brothers to
go with them. The senoras and senori-
tas take their exercise in closed car-
S riages. You never see, a phaeton or
wagon in Mexico. When they go shop-
ping they sit in their carriages and have
the goods brought out to them. It is a,
common thing to see a row of carriages
before a fashionable store with, a clerk at
the door of each one exhibiting silks or
gloves or ribbons. I
SIn some of the 'stores are parlors in
which the senora can'sit, if she likes.and
have the goods brought to her. None
but foreigners and the common people
stand at the counters and buy.
Mexican merchants never classify their
goods. They have no system in arrang,
ming them. Nor are goods,ever delivered
at the residences of purchasers. If your
Package is too bulky to carry in your
ands or in your carriage, it is sent to
your house by a licensed carrier, similar
to the district messenger boy of New
York, to whom you pay a fee. Each car-
rier has a brass badge like a policeman's,
bearing a number, and Jif he does not
deliver the goods promptly and in good
order, you report him at police head-
quarters, where he is heavily fined. On'
the -other had, if he cannot find your
residence, or there is a mistake in the
directions, he takes the goods to police
headquarters, and you can. find them
there, and discover the reasons why they
were not delivered.

Thinknot to please all men, strive as youwll
'Twere vain impossible; for there remaineth
The man whom naught can please or satisfy
By noble effort or by full endeavor,
By warmest impulse, in no way whatever.
Of such as he, set heart and mind at ease ;
Go on thy way, and take no heed of these,
For so 'twill be forever.'

Let not thy soul be troubled that they say :
S He might have done this thing, or that, a
better way.
Mayhap thy way is best, how can they know,
or see
With thine own eyes, what seemeth best to
Check the quick tear that steals into thin
Because one rudely speaks; keqo back the
SNor pale thee so;
For they will call it weakness wL .o stand by;
Though wellI know
It tells no weakness on thy earnest part
Nor loss of manhood. 'Tis only that thop
Too eager for approval; and that what thou
Should please all others as it pleaseth you.
No more than this thou askest of just praise,
So willing thou to do thy best always.
But thou must quaff all dregs of bitterness
Before thy soul can know supreme Success!
