One of the moBt terrible forms of insanity is caused by tlie u«e of intoxicating drinks.— It sometimes is exhibited by violent shrieking * and mental auguish,—the burning brain of the sufferer picturing horrible visions of liends and malignant objects seeking his in iary, grinning at him with hideous faces, and laughing at his torments. A more fearful punishment for violating the laws of health cannot be conceived. Here is another form of the diease, illustrated by an incident told by the Philadelphia Press: A pretty well dressed young man stepped into the Central Station, Monday alternoou, to enter a complaint. lie appeared to be per fectly sane, hut it was not long liefore we came to the conclusion that we stood in the pqpsence of a man who was laboring under an attack of mania-a-pot it. “Sir," said bo,“J am very much annoyed bv me Heading Kail road Company;" they nave caused a double track (W»oi the cellar of my house to the rool; one track goes up one side of my lied and down the other side. They run tlie cars all night. Just as I get into a doze a locomotive whixees by. Mowing the steam-whistle aud ringing the bell: last night, >ir, one of the locomotives flew off the track, leaped across my bed to the other track, and the engineer grinned at me like a devil. The passengers ail looked like devils, some with horns and some with no horns; each devil carried a canary bird, which seemed to sing ike a steam whistle." Here the informant paused. ‘‘Well, sir, your complaint is just; we have already taken measures to have the railroad racks removed from your house so that your em'sleep without being disturbed," was our lepU-. '1 lie man seemed to be grateful that such a course had liecn taken, and as he rose to de part, he said, “Sir, I wish you would remove that worm from my shoulder; only a little while ago 1 pulled one out of my forehead, and threw it on the pavement; just as 1 was about to pot my foot on it, nearly a hundred ran up my leg. and I suppose tbi- la one of, ““them,” We removed the imaginary worm; where upon lie exclaimed, “Why, there are more of them.” “Wall a moment,” said we; a brush was brought and properly used. The man, evir dentfy a gentleman, returned his thanks lo otiCkindness, and suddenly left the office.— He was a stranger. What became of him we Uuow not, but we thought the w hole scene a llrst class temperance lecture. Life in a Logging Camp.—A writer who lias stopped over night in a logging camp, writes the Lewiston Journal something about if Among other things, lie says: Life in a logging swamp is certainly simple and must lie conductive to health and morals, so far as plaiu diet and sufficient work or free dom from outside evil influences can be so productive. Life In a logging swamp is eminently eco nomical. The huts are built of hewn timber, log piled on log the height of about six feet and width in proportion. The sides are bat tened and all cracks completely chinked; the loof is made ol shaved cedar splits aud made tight, with exception of the smoke-hole or chimney, which i- four leet by six. On ;n tering, one is struck with the apparent simple style of life, no luxuries, we had about said, no conveniences. A large fire, covering a space of six leet by eight, crackles aud darts up through the gaping root. By this lire the cook prepares the men’s meals which consist principally of pork, potatoes, flour, beans and mrilaavnc . orrod * nil t ♦ cion lrnmi'n tlm Unary art. Hot biscuit, pork fat aud a liberal spread of molasses constitute a least, and manifest their nutritious principle in the ex re,; of tat, that soon shows ii-elf in the face of the choppers. Labor here is triumphant. From early light until quite dark, the woods are resonant witli the lull of the axe, the loud ngth of the teamsters and the hear y crash of the giant tree.-. The coarsest Tare meets a hearty appetite and a good night’s rest on spruce boughs follows a day’s work. A sort of army regulations arc necessarily in vogue, lor a double purpose; llrst. that the employers may reap full labor from tin men aud secondly (lint those employed may not fail in strength nr labor Lights in camp are extinguished at nine o'clock at night, when ail hands are ex- ! pneted to lie silent and so remain until the cook's call uext morning. The only disagree able mature to such hardy life that we can »ee, 1; the uncleanly habit of spending the entire logging months without a change of clothes. The meu mostly work and sleep in one suit, which rarely is removed from De cember to April. Little lolks sometimes get oil' pretty sharp things, and at the expense, too, ot the fond parents. For an instance: A while ago, iu a town not far away, there was a gathering of ministers from all the dill'ereut places round about, and, as the custom is, the good men, during their stay, were quartered among the parishioners. It chanced that at one liousei where the Iiev. Mr.-was lodged aud cared for, there wu- a precocious little fellow of some six years, who, one evening when lafl alone with the minister, was ^erhoard by the nursery-maid to exclaim! “i say, sir, my papa doesn't like to have strangers about the house, aud lie made an awful fuss when be heard you were coming!’’ Wasn't ‘ papa” placed in rather an awkward fix, it being out of his (lower,of course to mend the matter? and must not the Hev. Mr.-have had a delightfully jolly time of it duiiug the re mainder of his tarry beneath that roof? A Valuable I’etticoat.—In examining dresses of an elderly lady recently deceased in a neighboring town, bills of one of the Boston banks to the amount of three hundred and sixty dollars were found quilted into one of her petticoats. The money was aceident nlly discovered before her garments were dis tributed among the worthy poor, whose scanty wardrobes were considerably enlarged when the apparel of the deceased was parceled among them. By the discovery of the bills some of the poor lost a rich prize..—| Boston Transcript MISCELLANEOUS.
