Among the most excited of the ques­
tioners was a young serf about 20 years
old, who held in liis hands the hatchet
with which he had been felling wood
when the sledge dashed through the
quiet village. The beauty and painful
grief of the woman seemed to have made
rather an effect upon this young serf.
He was certainly more anxious than the
rest to hear her story, and was very
prominent in his attentions, and put
himself forward in endeavoring to offer
her consolation.
At last the object of all this excite­
ment had so far recovered as to be en­
abled to yield to the entreaties of those
who surrounded her, and. in a broken
voice and amid very general silence, she
spoke as follows:
“ I had heard that an old relation of
mine, who lives in a neighboring village,
was dangerously ill, and I determined
to set out and see if I could be of any
assistance. Early this morning I har­
nessed onr horse to the little sledge and
set out.”
“ Alone?” asked the young serf point­
edly, still swinging the hatchet in his
The bystanders well understood the
meaning of the question, and the same
word seemed involuntarily to escape
their lips.
“ Alone?”
It may be as well here to give a short
explanation, which will account in some
way for the exclamation.

preceding winter forty human beings

in a strange, unnatural voice, half choked
with sobs; “unhappily for me, I was not
alone 1 "Why, in Heaven’s name, did I
risk snch a journey? Don’t compel me,
I beg of you, to relate the horrors I have
gone through and all the miseries of
that awful morning.”
“ What has happened to yon? . Who
went with yon?” still asked many of
those who surrounded the woman, and
whose attention and curiosity were now
thoroughly roused.
“ Miserable woman that I am,” an­
swered she, “ I took with me my three
little children, the eldest of whom was
-about 5 years old, the youngest a little
darling only 6 months and still at the
An exclamation of horror ran through
the circle of bystanders, and each one
at last seemed to guess the hideous truth.
And then, amid a more awful silence
than before, the young woman went on
with her story.
“ It was a lovely morning, the road in
tolerably good order, and the old horse
trotted merrily along. My two little
boys played at my feet, and the little
one slept in my bosom. I was in high
spirits, and happy at the thought that I
was able to get away, and so, perhaps,
be o f service to iny poor old relative.
M y happiness, however, was not of very
long duration. About an honr after
onr departure from the village, the
thought struck me how daring and
venturesome it was to travel alone with
my little ones through a vast desert
of snow, out off from aid and far away
from any human habitation. Then, for
the first time, I-began to remember all
the dreadful accidents that had befallen
lonely travelers in onr neighborhood,
and almost made up my mind to turn
back again. This fear grew upon me,
and it increased more than ever when
I perceived that the track in the
snow had become‘ so narrow that all
chance of turning back in safety was
cut off.
On I was obliged to go,
whether I would or not. My terror still
kept increasing; but I dared not let the
children know that I apprehended any
danger. I listened anxiously, and
magnified the slightest sound I heard.
The track got narrower and narrower,
and, at last, as we were passing a little
bunch of fir trees, I heard distinctly
behind me an awful sound. I knew
well what it was. In an instant I
turned around and saw that we were
being pursued by a pack of hungry
wolves. Now that the danger was so
imminent my courage seemed to grow
stronger. I madly lashed the horse,
and he set off at wild, excited gallop.
It was too late. Two of the largest
wolves, with red, glaring eyes and hid­
eous, open jaws, were already at the
horse’s flanks, and raced with him
along the snow-covered tract. On the
horse’s life depended my life and that of
my children. I f he died we were all
lost. Cost what it might, the horse’s
life might be saved, I thought. A hor­
rible thought flashed across me, and,
instead of repelling it, I accepted
it as an inspiration from heaven.
In cold blood I made up my
mind, and in cold blood I calculated
the awful consequences of my plan.
At this very instant, my second boy, a
child about 3 years old, clung to
me and cried piteously. Tho boy’s sobs
seemed to excite the demoniac animals
more than ever, and they gained on the
galloping horse. Without knowing
what I was doing, and with almost an
involuntary movement, I seized the
shrieking child by the hair, and dropped
him behind the sledge. I saw him sink
into.the soft snow; there was one Wild
cry, and then the wolves stopped short
where the boy had fallen. A ll this
passed in less than an instant. For a
minute I thought we were saved; bnt it
was not so. The little one’s cries had
hardly died away in the distance when
two more wolves appeared at the side
of the sledge. The awful sacrifice I
had made had been useless, aud we
were in as much danger as ever. The
same fiendish thought took possession
of me, and again my mind was made
up. I looked first to the little darling
nestling closely to my breast, and then
I turned to my eldest boy, who was
pale with fear and clutched nervously
to the folds of my dress.
“ ‘ Oh, mother,’ he whispered, ‘ I will
be good! I won’t cry; really I won't
cry! Oh, mother, don’t throw me into
the snow !’ There was a heavy mist

what I did. Will God have mercy on
me? I f you could only know what I
suffered then I My little daughter
nestled closer than ever to my breast.
She must be saved, I thought. Must I
say what happened? You can guess.
My eldest boy died as his brother had
died before lfim.
“ Must you hear the rest? T was al­
most mad now; the howling of the
wolves, the horse, the last cries of my
children, the awful thought of seeing
my baby torn from my arms, the dread
of death—all mingled into a terrible
nightmare. I could not move hand or
foot; my eyes were fixed, and still I
clasped my babe to my bosom. 1 dared
not look behind m e; but at lastl heard
a terrible howl in my ear, and for a sec­
ond I felt something on my shoulder.
Why did I not faint? Mechanically I
turned my head. I saw a wolf with
open jaws clinging by his claws to the
back of the sledge. He made a half
spring at me, missed his hold, and fell
back into the snow. Three times he
made a fresh spring, and three times
he missed his hold.
The fourth
time he got his claws on the
sledge again, and tUere for a few
seconds he bung. There was only one
chance, to dash him back before he
could get firm hold. His claws stuck
deep into my fingers, and by main force
I tried to wrench them from the sledge.
It was a desperate struggle, and I had
almost succeeded, when my baby fell
from my arms. From that moment to
the time when I first heard the sound of
human voices I can remember nothing.
The reins had long fallen from my
hands; I knew the horse was galloping
on, bnt I can recollect no more. I have
no conception where we have been or
how I got here.”
The young woman again covered her
face with her hands and burst into a
passionate flood of tears. There was
an awful silence in the room, broken
every now and then -b y the hysterical
sobs of many of the women, and girls
who stood round. The men trembled,
too, and looked steadily on the ground,
but did not speak a word. At last a
white-haired woman began to speak
some words of consolation in a low,
trembling voice.
Immediately the
young serf, who had his hatchet still in
his hands, strode toward the miserable
woman. He was deadly pale and trem­
bled iu every lim b; the expression in
his face had changed suddenly. He
glared fiercely at the young woman and
at tho old peasant, who was still trying
to console her.
“ Be still, mother 1” he thundered out;
“ the wretched woman deserves none of
your pity.”
And then he turned to her.
“ Unhappy and most miserable woman;
is it possible that you have doue all
"that you have related? You are a
mother, you tell us, and yet you have
killed your children one by one. Not
one would yon Spare, not even the boy
who prayed to you on his knees, or the
baby child who smiled upon your
breast. To save your own life you
have sacrificed theirs, for you Bad not

you do not deserve the name. Yon are
unworthy to live. Prepare— «•”
There was a wild shrie kin the room,
and the woman fell at his feet. In an
instant the peasants guessed the mad
purpose of the young serf. Two of the
strongest rushed forward to stop his
hand. They were too late. A wild,
awful light glittered in the young man’s
eyes; with almost supernatural strength
he dashed the peasants hack. The
hatchet whistled through the air, and in
an*instant the unhappy woman was dead
at his feet.
Three months after the terrible scene
related above tbe young serf was
brought up before the highest criminal
court and charged with willful murder.
There was no need to prolong the
trial. The young serf was found guilty
of murder and condemned to die.
But eventually, by the direct com­
mand of the Emperor, the sentence of
the court was reversed, and the young
serf wa$ committed to ten years’ servi­
tude iu Siberia.
How He Was Discouraged.
“ So you want to marry my daughter,
do you?” said the father to 22 years of
trembling manhood.
“Yes, sir. I like her, and—and—”
“How can yon support her? What
salary do you get.”
“ O, my salary’s small, bnt I ’d oome

Celluloid i3 one of the most remark­
able of modern inventions, and bids
fair to be not less extensively or vari­
ously used than vulcanized rubber. It
is produced by mixing gum camphor
with a pulp of gun-cotton, and subject­
ing the combination to a high degree
of pressure and heat. The result is a
hard product of extraordinary toughness
and elasticity. It can be made plastio
again and molded into any required
form. Any color can be given to it by
the use of coloring matter during the
process of manufacture. The uses to
-which celluloid is put are numerous,
and are constantly increasing. It is ex­
tensively used as a substitute for ivory,
which it resembles so closely that it is
sometimes difficult to detect the differ­
ence. It is said to equal ivory in
strength and elasticity, and not to warp
or discolor with time. It has proved a
good material for piano and organ keys,
.billiard-balls, backs of brushes, lookingglass frames, handles for knives, forks,
umbrellas, and many other articles. It
is much cheaper than ivory, and is
claimed to be better for decorative pur­
poses. It is also used with much suc­
cess to imitate tortoise shell, malachite,
amber, pink coral, and other costly ma­
terials. In imitation of tortoise shell, it
is made into combs, napkin-rings,
match-boxes, card-cases, etc. Imitaions of pink coral jewelry aremade and
sold at prices much below those of the
genuine. The same is true of imita­
tions of malachite and amber. Mouth­
pieces for pipes, cigar-holders, etc., are
common. It is also used as a substitute
for porcelain in making dolls’ heads.
The frames of eye-glasses, opera-glasses,
and spectacles are made of it. More
recently it has come into use, in com­
bination with linen, cotton, or paper,
for shirt-bosoms, cuffs, and collars. The
material has a hard, glistening surface,
like that of newly-laundried linen; is
elastic and impervious to moisture, and

Walking Sticks.
A walking stick has always been con­
sidered a useful and graceful present,
likely to be of pleasant service, and
long possessed. Some are inclined to
think that the pilgrim’s staff, the Bish­
op’s crozier, the drum-major's gorgeous
mace and the usher’s wand hove a com­
mon origin with the walking stick; at
least, we know that change of habit,
and that most unaccountable change of
fashion, has in onr own time worked
some curious results; the various ma­
terials called into use are alone suffi­
cient to cause surprise. "Walking sticks
have been made of tortoise shell, the
backbone or vertebrae of the shark, the
tusk of the rhinoceros, and woods of
every conceivable variety, and lately
one was exhibited made entirely of
champagne corks, with a stout wire
passed through them. The handles
have very many more sources
to boast,
as there are many
materials not large enough to
make whole sticks; such, for instance,
- as the teeth of the giraffe, the walrus,
the elephant, and, in ' fact, most large
teeth and all horns are useful for toe
purpose. It is a remarkable fact that
women are seldom employed at stickmaking, and boys bnt little, there being
so much knowledge and skill required
for toe various processes that men are
chiefly employed; it is also singular
that steam power is not in use to any
large extent; machinery has toe power

all alike, bnt cannot vary them; this is
the reason of its not being generally
adopted, for the very charm of a stick is
its natural peculiarities. There must
not be two alike, and if nature is hu­
mored, as it is by skilled workmen, they
cannot b e ; it will readily be seen that a
fixed method cannot be applied to all,
as each stick must receive treatment
peculiar to itself.— Hatters' Gazette,

Overwork—The Breakdown.
I met a man some time ago who used
to travel in business, and almost passed
his life upon the rail He came home
one evening, and, walking across his
dining-room, he staggered like a
drunken man. Uncharitable people,
who did not know his habits, might
have thought bim intoxicated. He
sank on his chair, and he was a pris­
oner in his chair all the rest of his life..
He was completely paralyzed in his
lower limbs. The incessant traveling
on the rail had at last proved too much
for his nervous system. Hence the
collapse; and I have a strong impres­
sion that other oollapses might be
traced to a similar source. I knew of
a lawyer who was in a great rash of
business. He liked his fees; but, like
all men who succeed, he liked business
thoroughly for its own sake. H e was
unable to refuse business, and, indeed,
to refuse business is the hardest trial
which can happen to any professional
man. His mistake was, that he did not
provide himself with adequate assist­
ance. The ill-treated brain took to
softening, and then all business came to
an end. X knew of a man who was
enormously wealthy. In addition to
the constant employment which his
own vast property gave him, he was
trustee for ever so many widows, or­
phans and charities. He worked hard
at accounts till the small hoars in the
morning. A boy clerk, at 15s. a
week, might have done it all for him.
But he preferred “ doing his own work
himself,” and accordingly he had to
quit this inferior existence, where such
a condition of things is not always pos­
sible. One of the best-known men in
toe country once told me that he was
going to take a six weeks’ holiday at
the seaside. I was rejoiced to hear it.
No man better deserved or more re­
quired such a holiday. Then he told
me that he was going to take his new
book with him to the sea-side, and
hoped to have it ready for publication
by the time his holiday was over. I
expostulated with him. I explained
that he was only exchanging one kind
of hard work for a still harder kind of
hard work. But he took toe advice of
what is often a man’s worst counselor
—himself. His hook was successful;
bnt he never knew of toe sneoess.—

He Would Write to Their Parents.
The Bichmond (Va.) H erald told
this good story: CoLX., of John Mor­
gan’s cavalry, was not a martinet, but
bearded like toe pard, he had a military
air. Discipline wes his hobby. The
soldiers of his regiment were young
men from 18 to 25 years old—all of
them blue-blooded. To restrain these
Hotspnrs required tact, skill and firm­
ness. It was no easy task to curb this
“ jeunesse doree.” But the Colonel did
it, and this was toe way he did i t :
An inspection having been ordered,
toe Brigadier and his staff visited the
Colonel’s camp for the purpose of con­
ducting it. "While the regiment was in
line,un dergoing inspection, two privates,
who had been ranging toe night before
in search of buttermilk, and had en­
deavored to sneak into camp unob­
served, were detected by the outpost
sentinels and brought under arrest to
Col. X . at toe head of his regiment
The Colonel, cocking his hat on three
grains, sternly ordered them to his tent
to await his coming after inspection,
remarking to Gen. D . that he
would make an example o f these
rovers. Arrived at the tent with toe
General and staff, after ranks were
broken, toe Colonel arraigned toe cul­
prits before him.
“ Young gentlemen,” said he, severely,
“ yon are aware that you have been
guilty of a serious offense against the
discipline of my camp?”
“ Yes, Colonel,” was the meek reply.
“ WeU, sirs,” thundered toe Bhadamanthns, “ I desire you distinctly to
understand that if this offense is re­
peated I will write to your parents
about it. Go to your company.”
Turning to toe surprised officers look­
ing on, he said:
“ Yon see how severe I must be with
these young fellows. Discipline must
be preserved.”

Smithington’s wife is not kind in

Superstition Attached to Stones.
The opal, one of toe most beautiful
of all toe precious stones, has had any
amount of superstition attaohed to it.
B y some the ill-lnek attributed to its
nse is said to have arisenfrom Sir Wal­
ter Scott’s mention of it in “ Anne of
Geierstein.” He ascribed it to super­
natural agency; and long after that nov­
el was published toe belief in its evil in­
fluence was so strong that ne one would
wear an opal. That may have been toe
first conception of evil from wearing
opals, bnt we thinkit sprung from East­
ern superstition, or at least that there
were many and variouslegends connect­
ed with it. Some believed that it often
changed from the brilliant luster to a
smoky, dull color, and that any such
change foreshadowed misfortune and
trouble, but did not bring it. W e
know of an instance where a lady
brought an elegant opal necklace to a
jeweler’s, desiring to Bell it. They at­
tempted to dissuade her from such
folly, saying that, toe setting being
old-fashioned, they could give herwery
little for what was really valuable. To
this she replied that toe necklace was
given her as a bridal gift forty years be­
fore, and she never had had an hour’s
luck since they came in her possession,
and she would never carry them home
with her. No matter how little they
were willing to give her, she would
leave them. She did so, but we have
never heard if, by disposing of her
opals for a mere trifle, she escaped sub­
sequent misfortune.
How Myths Originate.
No doubt many legends o f the
ancient world, though not really his­
tory, are myths which have arisen b y
reasoning on actual events as definite
as that which, some four years ago, was
terrifying the peasant mind in North
Germany, and especially in Posen. The
report had spread for and wide that all
Catoolio children with blaek hair and
bine eyes were to be sent out of toe
country, some said to Bussia, while
others declared it was the K ingot
Prussia who had been playing cards
with the Sultan of Turkey, and had
staked and lost 40,000 fair-haired, bineeyed children; and there were Moors
traveling about in oovered carts to
collect tnem; and the sehoolmasters
were helping, for they were to have
$5 for every child they handed over.
a time the popular ex­
citement was quite serious; the pa­
rents kept toe children away from
school and hid them, and when they
appeared in toe streets of toe market
town toe little ones clung to them with
terrified looks. Dr. Schwartze, the
well-known mytoologist, took the
pains' to trace the rumor to its
source. One thing was quite plain,
that its prime cause was that grave
and learned body, toe Anthropological
Society of Berlin, who, without a
thought of the eommotion they were
stirring up, had, in order to olass toe
population as to race, induced the au­
thorities to have a census made
throughout toe local schools to ascer­
tain the color of toe children’s skin,
hair and eyes. Had it been only the
boys, to the Government inspection of
whom for military conscription the
German peasants are only too well ac­
customed, nothing would heve been
thought of it ; but why should toe offi­
cials want to know about the little girls’
hair and eyes?—P opular Science

Dying Words.
It is probably natural that at the last
toe scenes which have made toe strong­
est impressions in life should be re­
called b y memory. The old mountain­
eer, when fie comes to die, with his last
whisper says his snowshoes are lost;
with toe stage-driver he is “ on a down­
grade and cannot reach the brake j” the
miner cannot get to the air-pipe; toe
sailor says “ eight bells have sounded,”
and toe gambler plays his last trump.
A little girl died here a lew years ago,
and, as her mother held her wrist and
noted toe faint and flickering pulse, a
smile came to the wan fooe andthechild
whispered: “ There is no more desert
here, mamma, but all the worid is full
of flowers.” A moment later the smile
became transfixed. In an Eastern city,
not long ago, a Sister o f Oharity was
dying, and at last from a stupor she
opened her eyes and said: “ It is
strange; every kind Word that I have
spoken in life; every tear that I tyave
shed, has become a living flower around
me, and they bring to my senses an in cease ineffable.”— V irginia (2 Ten,}

make some changes in my establish­

if they can be done now than if they
had to be postponed for a couple o f

o f my working force from 250 to 500
men. But I do not want to makesuch
an extension, and then And that we
have a free-trade President with a
free-trade Congress behind him.” Heis not the only mail who is asking just
such questions at this time. The Dem
ocratic manufacturers o f Wheeling
and other parts o f Western Virginia
are asking, also, what can make it
their business to help by their votes to
enact “ a tariff for revenue only,” and
thus to close their own establishments,
or at least to prevent their develop­
ment in accordance with the growing
demands of the country. Every man­
ufacturing center, from the Merrimac

For Business Men to Think of.
A thoughtful article in the current
number o f the Atlantic Monthly upon
“The Business Issues o f the Presi­
dential Campaign” deserves the atten­
tion o f the commercial and industrial
classes. The drift o f Its argument ap­
pears in this extract:
Merchants, manufacturers and oth­
ers who have to do with the large
affairs o f trade are taking an unaccus­
tomed interest in the Republican cam­
paign. The policy o f the Republican
party in all matters affecting business
interests, is now fixed hy the practice
o f three consecutive administrations,
and has been repeatedly approved hy
the platforms o f national conventions.
I f the Republicans are again success­
ful. AVhat will happen if the Demo­
crats succeed? Nobody can predict.
In this uncertainty lies one o f the chief
sources of the weakness o f the Demo­
cratic party in the present canvass. In
all countries governed by popular suf­
frage, power shifts from one party to
another at longer or shorter intervals
o f time, and the longer one party has
been in control o f the government the
greater are the chances of its defeat
at the polls. W illi this law o f politics
in their favor, the Democrats who
have been 20 years out o f power, might
reasonably hope fo r success this year,
in spite of the. memories o f the rebel­
lion, and in spite o f the alarming solid­
ity o f the south, if they wei-e able to
give the country assurance that they
would do nothing to disturb the pros­
perity o f business. But they can give
no such assurance save by the cheap
protestations o f stump orators, and
these protestations can only have the
effect o f calling attention to the bad
record, o f the party. I f it had behaved
well in the past there would he no need
now fo r its leaders to assert, with such
warmth, that it does not intend to de­
stroy the public credit, debase the cur­
rency, cripple manufacturing interests,
shut up the banks, and generally over­
turn the present staple condition of
affairs. F or the Republicans to make
such assertions concerning their party
would he absurd. I t would be as if a
hanker o f excellent reputation fo r sol­
vency and integrity should say to a
depositor, “Sir, I do not mean to steal
your money or squander it in specula­
tion.” The depositor would be likely
to conceive a suspicion at once, and
would take up liis checks andcashfrom
the counter and go to some other hank.
The Democrats are in the attitude of
the hanker Who went out o f business,
bankrupt, years ago, and now applies
fo r a renewal *of public confidence.

T h e follow in g dispatch appeared in
. Tuesday’s Inter-Ocean:
St . J oseph , Mich, Oct. 11.—To-day
has been a gala day for the Republi­
cans of Berrien county. A t noon to­
day there were at least 5,000 people in
Benton Harbor to listen to speeches
from the Hon. D. H. Jerome, Republi­
can candidate for Governor; the Hon.
0 . D. Conger and the Hon. J. G. Bur­
rows, Republican Congressmen from
this State. In front o f the speakers’
stand the crowd was dense for blocks.
In the afternoon Messrs. Jerome and
Conger spoke. This evening there was
a large procession o f Garfield and A r­
thur Guards from both sides o f the
river, and about 7 :30 they halted up in
front o f the speakers’ stand to hear
Michigan's favorite orator, J. C. Bur­
rows. Everything in this Western
part o f the State goes to show a large
Republican majority for Garfield and
S ome curious things may be observed
in the way justice is dealt out in this
place. One day last week a colored
man came walking up Front street
making no disturbance o f any kind,
molesting no one, but was so drunk
that lie staggered. The Marshal ar
rested him, took him to the village
prison, kept him there all night, and. in
the morning took him before Justice
Dick, .and was fined §5 and costs,
amounting .in all §S. N ow we enter
no complaint at this proceedings, for
it is strictly in accordance with the law
and perfectly proper, but there are a
dozen or more o f men in this place who
get drunk about once a week and stay
drunk about six days at a time, and
some o f whom make themselve decid]y disagreeable, but from the fact that
they belong to a better (?) class o f
drunkards they are never molested bv
the officers, and this makes justice ap­
pear to the casual observer in a most
ridiculous light. I f the most wealthy
man in town is a criminal and violates
the law, is found drunk upon the
street, arrest him just as quick as the
lowest devil in Christendom or let the
whole business alone.

Democratic. I f they voted the same
way on Monday the total result in the
state will compare with 1876 as fol­

The Republicans have gained con­

were Democratic in 1S7G and conse­
quently may he classed as showing Re­
publican gams. It appears therefore that
the Republicans have gained in, whole or
part in 39 towns and the Democrat.« in 9,
making a ret Republican gain 30 toions.
Thu Taken in connection with, the greatly
increased Republican vote in the larger
/owns, its a result which can only he regard­
ed us showing a marked change in political
sentiment since 1876. There has never
been any doubt that the Republican
vote in 1870 was seriously lessened by
the disaffection resulting from busi­
ness depression. Many men voted for
a “change" then because they reasoned
that any change would he an improve­
ment. There can he as little doubt
that the result this year has been in­
fluenced by the renewed prosperity of
tlic country and the determination to
avoid the uncertainties which must
result from any change.

what ails them, (profitable patients for

first dose and keep it up until perfect
health and strength is restored. Whoever is afflicted in this waw need not
suffer, when they can get Hop Bitters.

How s p i d e r s live under water is
tons explained: The creature goes to
toe surface o f toe water and moves all
its legs busily, just as if it were trying
to crawl out of toe water. Suddenly it
gives a sharp jerk or kick, and dives
beneath toe surface. It then looks ex­
actly as if it were surrounded by a case
of polished silver, owing to a bubble of
air which it has inclosed beneath its
long hind legs. Besides this there are
a number o f smaller bubbles which
cling to toe other legs, and which can
be added to toe principal bubble when
needed. This supply o f air is sufficient
to last toe spider for a considerable
I s toe erection o f the Pyramids of
Egypt toe immense stones used were
obtained from toe quarries in the Ara­
bian hills, and were carried over toe
river by a bridge o f boats. They were
then brought by means of a causeway,
which o f itself it took ten years to con­
struct, and which is said to have been
a fine work, with its polished, stones
and figures o f animals engraved on
them. One hundred thousand men
were employed at a time, and these
were relieved b y toe same number at
toe end o f three months. A long time
was spent in leveling off the rocks on
which toe edifice stands, and twenty
years for toe edifice itself. The stones
were raised, step by step, b y means of
a machine made o f short pieces of
wood, and, last of all, commencing
from the top, toe stones were cemented
together b y layers of cement-not thick­
er than a Strip of paper, toe strength of
which is improved b y the age of these
enormous "materials.
E ach of our features is supposed to
have a language—eyes,nose andmouto.
But the language of hair has been
formulated in toe following manner:
Straight, lank, stringy-looking hair in­
dicates weakness and cowardice. Guriy
hair denotes quick temper. Frizzy hair,
set on one’s head as if each indi­
vidual hair were ready to fight its
neighbor, denotes coarseness. Black
hair indicates persistent resolution in
accomplishing an object, also a strong
predisposition to avenge wrongs and
insult—real or fancied. Brown hair
denotes fondness for life, a friendly
disposition, ambition, earnestness of
purpose, capacity for business, relia­
bility in friendship, in proportion as toe
hair is fine. "Very fine hair indicates
an even disposition, a readiness to for­
give, with a desire to add to toe happi­
ness o f others. Persons with fine lightbrown or auburn hair, inclined to curl
or friz, are quick-tempered, and are
given to resentment and revenge.
Light-brown hair, inclined to redness,
with a freckled skin, is a certain indi­
cation o f deceit, treachery and a dispo­
sition to do something mean by a friend
who can no longer be used to advantage.
"We give the information as we find it,
and it is about as true as such things
generally are.

Gate Him His Answer.
It was a sad thing for Lettie Davis
when she put out her washing on toe
clothes-line o f her South Fifth avenue,
abode. Peterson Knapp was there on toe
watch, and it is alleged carried off toe
raiment, part and parcel. At all events,
a policeman arrested him for the of­
fense, and he went to the Police Court
prepared to maintain his innocence by
counsel- Lettie was there, too, and, in
spite of numerous trying interruptions
from the counsel, she got down to the
point in her narrative where she dis­
covered Peterson, longingly eying the
clothes as she hung them out.
“Dat brack niggah," she said, ungently apostrophizing toe prisoner; “he
stood dab wif an ole d a y pipe shoved
whar It ’ud d o toe moas good, and he
puffin’ as if he’d like to split. But de
way he looked at dem clothes was qnite
’miff to show enny reason’ble oomans dat
dey wasn’t safe.”
“ Gome, witness,” quoth counsel, sar­
castically, “ tell ns just what kind o f a
look tost is.”
“ Oh, you get out,” was toe snappish
" I insist on that question; how did.
toe prisoner look to convey toe impres­
sion toe clothes were in danger?”
"Witness was ready with another tart
reply, bnt his Honor said:
“ Gome, youm ust answer; how did he
The witness seemed puzzled.
“ D id he look,” asked his Honor,
glancing around for a smile, “ did he
look like—like counsel, for instance?”
“ Oh, ’deed, no, sah,” replied the wit­
ness. “I f he looked de least b it like
dat gemman dere wouldn’t been no
robbery at alL*
“Ah,” said the flattered counselor,
“how’s that?”
“Pd made udder arrangements.”
“Indeed,” he continued, smiling,
“ what might they have been?”
“ Why, if_he looked at all like yon
does, I wouldn’t have dat’d to hang dem
clothes out at all.”
There were no interruptions from
that time on.—Nieto Y ork H erald.
Trousers F irst W orn in England.
I t is generally known to all middleaged men, b y “ tradition,” that breeches
began to give place to trousers during
toe first decade of toe present century,
but it is generally known that trousers
were actually worn by London exquis­
ites in toe latter years of the last centu­
ry. “It will be observed,” says a writer
in “ Ariiss* Pocket Magazine of Classic
and Polite Literature,” new series, vol­
ume 8, 1S25, “ from the following de­
scription o f a dandy published in 1791,
that trousers were then in fashion, and
were considered as a ridiculous article
o f dress: ‘Advertisement Extraordi­
nary!—Lost, last Saturday night, sup­
posed in the lobby o f toe new
theater, an overgrown baby, who
arrived bnt two
days ago in
town, from toe country. H e had on a
light-colored coat, with cape hanging
carelessly over his shoulders; a pair of
his father’s breeches, which reached
down to his ankles; and an old pair of
his grandmamma’s spectacles, which he
converted into an opera-glass. He had
on his sister’s high-crowned hat, and
Ins hair cat so short tost yon might ob­
serve his bare poll. Laughs a great
deal; act swear a few fashionable oaths,
bnt does n ot know how to write his
name. Answers to toe name of Master
Jacskey. As he had only sixpence a
week pocket-money, i t is feared he is
detained in some cake-shop for his reck­
oning; i f so, all demands shall be care­
f u l l y paid i f h e is restored to his dis­
consolate parents.’ ” Burlesque adver­
tisements, such as toe foregoing, were
not common in old magazines.
TV ild A n im a ls i n A f r i c a .
Although the gradual spread Of toe
population toward the interior o f Africa
is driving toe wild animals further and
farther inland, and though they are
consequently difficult to reach in the
more inaccessible haunts to which they
have retreated, yet toe larger wild ani­
mals have, with one or two exceptions,
scarcely suffered any diminution from
the advancing tide o f civilization. Os­
triches have suffered, perhaps, the most,
but only to exchange a wild for a do­
mesticated state. Elephants are fre­
quently seen within a short distance of
southern and southeastern coasts. Hip­
popotami are abundant. Even toe
larger beasts o f prey are by no means
uncommon, and tigers are especially
depredators. I f the reports of diamond
diggers in the Northwest are to be be­
lieved, a new animal has lately made its
appearance as a candidate for toe honor
of being chased by an enterprising
sportsman. It is called by toe oushmen,
or natives, the “ bear lion,” and is d e -,
scribed as being abont the size o f a
lion, but far stronger in make, and with
a tremendous head and neck. Its legs
are much shorter than a lion’s, but much
stouter, and it is apparently far more
powerful. Its color is a dark yellow,
with black spots. It runs or creeps
along toe ground, but does not bound
like a lion. It has sometimes been seen
accompanied by a smaller one—probably
a cub—so that the race is apparently
not yet qnite extinct, whatever the ani­
mal may be.

Carrying Pistols in Arkansas.
A man was arraigned in Little Bock
on a charge o f carrying a revolver.
“ Haven’t you got better sense than to
carry a pistol like this?” asked the
Judge, holding up a pepper-box pistol.
“ Tes, sir.”
“ Don’t you know that the law says
yon shall he fined $25?”
“ Tes, sir ; hut I didn’t know it was
any harm to carry such a pistol.”
“ But it is, sir. A ny man that would
carry such a pistol ought to go to the
penitentiary for lifo.
Suppose you
were to get into a fight, having such a
pistol. "While yon were trying to shoot
the other fellow would run away. Tou
may go this time, but if I ever hear of
yon carrying such a worthless pistol
again I ’ll get up a petition to ilie Gov­
ernor and have yon hung. No wonder
we are slandered at the North when
such trifling men as you are carrying
pistols that could only hurt a man by
lying on his stomach and refusing to di­
Brown Paper Against the Cold.
The “ old woman’s” remedy for a
“ cold on the chest,” a sore throat, or a
bruise, which consisted in an applica­
tion of brown paper steeped in beer or
vinegar, owed its efficacy to the heatretaining properties of the paper. A
wet pad of this material, as far as the
surface next to the skin was concerned,
acted almost as well as a layer of wet
linen rag protected with a thick cover­
ing of flanneL In short,.stout paper of
the commonest sort is an effective non­
conductor, and m aybe advantageously
employed as covering for beds or to eke
out scanty clothing. A piece of thick
paper inserted between toe lining and
the cloth of a waistcoat or in the back
of a thin coat will render it warm as
well as light. The suggestion is a
small one, "but it is simple to carry into
effect, and will be found effective.
A Good Letter.
The best of all letters is that which
conveys toe most information in the
fewest possible words. A lack of spon­
taneity destroys toe charm of a letter.
Ladies have two favorite epistolary
manias in their ordinary correspond­
ence, namely, writing across lines and
indnlging in postscripts, to say nothing
of their almost universal practice of un­
derlining words—this is a confession of
weakness. Among celebrated letters is
a brief one which occurs to us, while we
write, from the pen of toe Italian poet,
iPolitian, "to a friend: “I had a great
grief, and I have a great joy—because
yon were sick, and because yon have
recovered.” How brief and how signifi­
cant 1 This letter stands as a model to
all letter-writer6.

Napoleon.’ ! Domestic HaMtg.
Tn Mme. D e Eemnsaf s “ Memoirs of
toe Private L ife of Napoleon and Jose­
phine” are some very interesting de­
tails of" toe imperial household. Na­
poleon’s income was about $7,100,000 a
year, exclusive of what he took from the
secret service and other funds. H e al­
lowed himself $8,000 a year fo r hit
dress. It is well known thatif an articl<
of clothing did not snit him exactly,
either in make or material, it was con­
demned, aud that he v s s greatly given
to inking or greasing his white breeches
and to "burning his boots b y using his
boot as a poker, especially when he was
angry or excited. H e usually rose at 7.
I f he wakened in toe night h e frequent­
ly bathed, ate or worked before going
to sleep again. H e suffered from a foul
stomach, and often fancied that he had
been poisoned. It took M. D e Bemnsat
a long time' to teach him to shave him­
self; the Chamberlain was moved to
this through Napoleon’s visible uneasi­
ness when in toe barber’s hands. H a
garment did not please him it was torn
off and thrown on the floor or into the
fire. In trimming his nails, of which
he was vain, he used countless pairs of
scissors, that were smashed off-hand if
they were not sharp. The only perfume
he was partial to was cologne, of which
he required sixty bottles a month. He
ate and drank little, though he was veiy
fond of coffee. A t dinner he had every­
thing served at once, and fed at hazard,
often taldng cream or a dish of sweets
before touching toe entrees.

at home, where all is gorgeous, there
lurks a skeleton that if not at toe pres­

So in riper years husband and wife may

A g u e Cure
Is a purely vegetable bitter and power
ful tonic, and is warranted a speedv ana
certain cure for Fever and Ague, Chills
and Fever, Intermittent or Chill Fe­
ver, Remittent Fever, Dumb Ague,
Periodical or Bilious Fever, and all
malarial disorders. In miasmatic dis­
tricts, the rapid pulse, coated tongue, thirst,
lassitude, loss of appetite, pain in the back
and loins, and coldness of the spine and
extremities, are only premonitions of
severer symptoms, which terminate in the
ague paroxysm, succeeded by high fever
and profuse perspiration.
It is a startling fact, that quinine, arse­
nic and. other poisonous minerals, form the
basis of most of the “ Fever and Ague
Preparations,” “ Specifics,” “ Syrups,” and
“ Tonics,” in the market. The prepara­
tions made from these mineral poisons,
although they are palatable, and may
break the chill, do not cure, but leave the
malarial and their own drug poison in
the system, producing quinism, dizziness,
ringing in the ears, headache, vertigo, and
other disorders more formidable than the
disease they were intended to cure.
A y e r ’ s ' A g u e C u r e thoroughly eradicates
these noxious poisons from the system,
and always cures the severest cases. It
contains no quinine, mineral, or any thing
that could injure the most delicate pa­
tient; and its crowning excellence, above
its certainty to cure, is that it leaves the
system as free from disease as before the
