Methods are the masters of masters.—Tal leyrand. The MSS. of Balfe, which his widow lately presented to the British Museum, fill 53 vol umes. Miss Harriet Fenimore Cooper, I be novel ist's daughter, is writing a history of the Oneida Indians. Two white oxen appeared in Louisville the other day, and they looked so like small snow drifts that every man who saw them sent home after his overcoat. The city marshal of Eutaw, Ala., has lost his office for starting a lottery, whilst in pro hibitory Massachusetts a man would stand a chance of losing hia office if he didn't start a lot o’ rye. We knew the fool would turn up some where who would put his postal card it. a stamped er velope and mail it that way. Covington, Ky., is responsible for him, and he thinks the cards are a great convenience. A New Haven tobacconist has offered $12 for the petrified Indian lately sent to Tale College from Calfornia to use as a cigar sign, and the faculty think some of realizing on the corpse, k owing that at a simple hint the students would steal it back for them. The Oberlin New Era says of a suicide there that “a pair of shoes belonging to the deceased were found sitting on the ground near the cistern ” We hardly know which to admire must in that pair of shoes, their in telligence or their touching devotion. The Ann Arbor (Mich.) lecture association took just $49 less than expenses in 13 lectures, last winter. They cleared an even ‘25 cents on Ednu nd Yates, 50 cents on James T. Fields, came out >quare on George W. Curtis, and made $84 on Beecher. Covington, Ky, is wondering at the queer antics of an old couple in its streets. Every day a venerable dame appears with a ham mer and nails, and securely fasten) up the gates in her locality. In her wake follows her aged consort with a crowbar, who pa tiently undoes the work of his predecessor, keeping about three gates behind her. Haverhill has a somnambulist, who gets up and does the weeks washing, hanging the clothes on the line, and returning to bed be fore 3 A. Yl. Last Monday he did the wash ing all right—bat on Tuesday lie rather over did the business.by washing again the clothes he washed on Monday, and his wife has tak en precaution to check his propensity. A Western editor, who received half a doz en soft-shell crabs the other day, says h> the next issue of his paper,"They were indeed delicious, but were evidently intended to be eat n when dead, as one of the cusses w ent skittering up and down our throat two or thre ■ times before we could mash him with our bough ten teeth.” 0 -—— Apropos of Pullman in London, they tell a story over there ol an uncultiva'ed New York er who received the fa ewell card of a tr end with the cabalistic “P. P. C.” In the corner, and after a long puzzle as to what it meaut, finally had the bright idea that it meant Pull man’s palace car, and that this was the pho nographic way his friend had of telling him that be had gone to San Francisco. Cham, the clever caricaturist of the Chari vari, has discovered a way of overcoming one difficulty in the organization of a second chamber. He represents, in the Chari-ari, one Assembly above the other, with a trap door in the flooring that separates them, and M. Thiers perched on a ladder, with the up per p.art of his body above anl the lower por tion below. By this means he may be present in both chambers at once. Always carry a revolver when you go out horseback riding with a young lady. Mr. Bragg of Visalia, Cal., carried one when he took Miss Kemp to ride, the other day, and, as they were both on the same horse, when the weapon wt nt ofT, the bullet entered the young lady’s knee and came out at the an kle. Her dress was set on fire, and she was seriously injured by the falling from the horse, but such incidents arc trivial In com parison with the sense of security which an able-bodied man derives from the possession of a pistol. Fertilizing Properties in Bones. The true value of bones, aside from their importance in tie arts tor handles, rings, paints, clarifying sugar, etc., Is fast begin ning to be appreciated in this coun try. Peoo.'e were horrified a few years since by tbe published account of tbe tons of human hones transported Iroin the battle field of Waterloo, to be ground and spread over tbe worn ou< lands of Europe. From time immemorial it has been known that veg etal ion, and particularly trees, thrive im mensely in graveyards. Now it is neither the gelatine nor glue that holds tbe particle of bones together, nor the lime ot which they are composed, which gives activity to vegetable growth alone, but the phosphorus in them—that inflammable ma terial of which matches arc manut'acured, known in its combinations as phosphate of lime, that plants seize upon with avidity as food. Nothing else within the range oi agri cultural experience so rapidly develops the cellular structure. To be most useful bones should be pulver ized, and that enables water to make a quick er solutiou of the phosphate, which tbe mi nute rootlets immediately absorb and circu late through the stem, leaves and fruit. Save tbe bones, therefore. Let nothing go to waste. There are actual treasures concealed in a dry bone, if tbe right course be pursued to exact them. In tbe skeleton of a horse, an ox, or ev»n a dog or c it, there arc about from one to four pounds of phosphorus. Tbe carcass of any of these animals, cut up and distributed among iruit trees, inslea I of being buried out of the way as a nuisance, would be to them a rich entertainment of delicious food. —Colonial Farmer. What the Lecturers will talk about.—Mr. Jenkins of London, known as tbe author of “Ginx’s Baby,” is to visit the United States, tbe coming season, and lec ture on “The England of to-day” and the "English Satirists.” John B Gough's new lecture is entitled “Now and Then.” Mrs. Livermore will give her views on “Women’s Husbands.” Rev. W. H. H. Murray will tell what he knows about “The Perfect Horse,” which is a good deal. Ex- President Hill of Harvard college will descant on the “St aits of Magellan’* and "Juan Fernan dez.” Mrs. Leonowens has prepared new lectures on Siamese lite. Dr. Hayes, tbe Arctic explorer, announces “Far Northern Life and setnery” and the “Histo^ and Progress of Maritime Discovery.” Thomas Fitch of Nevada will give tbe experiences of “A Sagebrusher in Vienna.'' James Parton will take a hand—purely as a lecturer in “Our Scandalous Politics,” which may, per haps, introduce some allusions to the salary grab. Dr. Dio Lewis has ‘wo 'mportjnt themes: “Our Girls” and John Lord has a n.m.hero 1^^ ^ £ resentative men. .,nli tr,nj,;i ture, if bis health be heart tom! PliilliDs will also doubtless oe neara iroin. «1 Rmitwell is also named as a lecturer, ^‘se-tfon Mrs. Julia Ward Howe’i brmes are “Paris ’ and “Sarto Domingo.” Col T. W.
