Varied Career ahd Sad Death. From the Springfield (Mess.) Republican. Muy 26. A man died in Worcester, a few days ago, whose career is a strange illustration of the power of strong drink to ruin manhood. Twelve years ago he was a lawyer in Connec ticut, then twenty-four years old, of marked ability and fine promise. Entering the army, he served with distinction, rising to the com mand of his regiment. Becoming addicted to the use of intoxicants, he saok to the lev el of a common drunkard, and in 1865 was allowed to resign to escape disgrace. While intoxicated in one of the low dens of New York, one night, he was “shanghaed’’ aboard of a China bark, which sailed the next morn ing for Bombay. The vessel was wrecked in St. Helena Bay, on the west coast of Africa, and all but nine of the crew lost. The re mainder made- their way to Cape Towd, where the ex-soldier commenced a prolonged debauch. He was finally arrested, imprison ed, and at last hired by the authorities to a Dutch farmer, by whom, in company with several Hottentots,he was employed in tend ing cattle. After a rief experience of this kind oflife, he escap»d and shipped on a small vessel bound through the Straits of Madagas car ou a trading voayge. Becoming dissatis fied, however, he again deserted, and, pene trating to the interior of the island,lived some time among the natives. He was allowed to become a settler, had half a dozen wives, and was fo' a time considered as one of the peo ple ; but finally becoming unpopular, and bearing that he was to be murdered, he sceretly departed at night. After almost in ciedible sufferings, he reached the coast and put to sea in an open boat, intending to reach the main laud. He was picked up by a ves sel bound for Cape Town and carried back. There he shipped for Singapore, and, after wandering in China and Japan for several years, finally reached San Francisco. All this time his habit of drinking had maintain ed its ascendency, and had sufficed tocounter act the stimulus which his adventures might otherwise havegiven a bold, daring spirit. He was physically and mentally broken down, aud incapable of further effort. He remain ed in San Francisco virtually a beggar until about a year ago, when he appeared in Eliza beth, N. J.. as bar-tender in a drinking sa loon of the lowest class. A few months since a relative, hearing that he had fallen sick and was without friends or means ot support’ went to New Jersey and brought him to Wor’ cester, where he passed his last days A Misguided book agent.—a book agent entered the open door of a snug Pitts field cottage one day last week, and nodding to a trim, bright looking little woman who sat sewing by the window, commenced volu bly to descant on the merits rf a great work which he was for the first time giving man kind an opportunity to purchase. It was a universal biography, cook-book, dictionary, family physician, short hand instructor, and contained, besides, a detailed history of every important event that has transpired in the world, from the apple incident and Adam’s fall to Credit Mobilier and the fall of Con gress. The work contained five thousand chapters all with running titles. The agent, after talking on the geucial excellences of the volume about five minutes commenced on the headings of those chapters, and as the woman did not say a word to interrupt him he telt that he was making a conquest and be rattled away so that she shouldn’t have a chance to say no. It took him nearly half an hour, and as he breathlessly weut on the sweat started on his forehead and he made convulsive grasps at his collar, and when he finished had hardly strength enough left to put on a bewitching smile and hand her his ready pen wherewith to subscribe her name on the order book. She took the pen, but in stead ot putting her autograph on his list she lifted a scrap of paper from her work-box and wrote in plain letters “Ime defe and dum He said not a word, but the unutterable things that he looked, as he turned to> tm, door, would fill a library.—PittufleM The Ear, HOW TO CARE FOR IT. Thu Popular Science Monthly, for June says that probably the most frequent way in which the ear is impaired is by thcattempt to c.tan it. It ought to be understood that the passage oi the ear does not require cleaning by us. N-.ture undertakes that task, and in the healthy state fulfills ft perfectly. Her means tor cleaning the ear is the wax. Per haps the reader lias never wondered what be comes of the ear-wax. I wi„ tel| hiln. It It dries up mto thin, fine scales, and these peel off, one by one, from the surface 0r the passage, and fall out impercentihl7 ,® behind them a perfectly clean, snmoth ,‘,?r8 face. In health the passage of the ear l» never iirty; but, if we attempt to clem it we infallibly make it so. Here —by a strange lack of justice, as it would seem, which, however, has no doubt, a deep justice at the bottom—the best people’ those who love cleauiiness, suffer most, and good and careful nurs. s do a mischief negli gent ones avoid. Washing the ear out with snap and water is bad; it kee s the wax moist when it ought to become dry and scaly, increases its quantity unduly, and makes it absorb the dust with which the air always abouuds. But the most hurtful thing is in troducing the corner of the towel, screwed up, and twisting it round. This does more harm to the ears than all the other mistakes together. It drives down the wax upon the membrane much more than it gets it out. Let any one who doubts this make a tube like the passage, especially with the curves which it possesses; let him put a thin mem brane at one end, Bniear the surface with a substance like the ear wax. and then try to get it out so by a towel. But this plan does much more nrschief than merely pressing dowu the wax. It irritates the passages, aDd makes it cast off small flakes of skin, which dry up and become extieraely hard, and these are also hard y pressed dowu upon the membrane. Often it is not only deafness that ensues, but pain and inflammation, and then matter is formed which the hard mass prevents from escaping, and the membrane becomes diseased, and worse may follow. Washing should extend only to the outer surface, a3 far as tne Anger can reach. It is a bad pr ctice, also, to put cotton wool soaked in laudanum or chlo oforrn into the ear for the relief of toothache. When a child’s ear becomes painful, as it often does, everything s ho aid be done to soothe it, and all strong, irritating applications should be avoided. Pieces of hot fig or onion should not be put in, but warm flannels should bo applied, with poppy fomentation, if the pain should not soon subside. It should be remembered that constantly covering up the ear is adapted to injure it. On tlte whole, men, in whom the ear is ha bitually exposed, suffer if anything less from ear-disease than women, iu whom it is often covered. A Wkiting Machine.—There is now an automatic writer, the work of a western in, ventor, that bids fair to realize most of the purposes of such an instrument. The opera tor sits before three or four rows of keys, marked with the letters, figures, and punctu ation marks, and upon pressing one of these the leter-is instantly recorded on a sheet of paper. Speed to the extent of fifty words a minute is said to be easily attainable, which is perhaps twenty words more than a rapidly long handed writer will average. ■ Greater speed, greater ease, and greater legibility would seem to recommend tne invention as one that may beccrae very serviceable to overworked mankind. Recent Publications. VIOderII Hlagie-Br 91. Mrhrle de Vere. This volume contains a series of ingenious papers on magnetism, visions, spiritualistic phenomena, etc., treated from a scientific point of view. While admitting that there are undoubtedly in existence, certain forces, at present unexplained, and which are not supernatural, but, on the contrary, are in perfect harmony with ail other laws, known and unknown, of the universe—we believe that in the present nebulous stale of thought upon such subject!, it is undesirable that popular attention be directed to them. The uatural tendency to morbid speculations and superstitious dread of the ghostly element of life cannot fail to in fluence popular theories, until clear and co herent facts are proved to exist, sufficient to account scientifically for extraordinary phe nomena. In the meantime, we think that even so well-written and rational a work a* is this of the well-known scientist, M. da Y'TC, is not beneficial to the general reader. Published by Putnam & Go., N. Y.
