A young lady teacher in Ringgold County, Iowa, rides to school on an ox every morn ing. That man who sells a powder that renders ,hc:.°^:;,on'ex,,losive u trave||a* tin-ongii "" a Louis editor wants a delin — Paxton, III., has a new paper called the Gimlet, which is to be “devoted to life, liber ty and the pursuit of greenbacks.” Ladies who go to the Jerome park races decorate their heads with little steel snaffles and horse shoes and diminutive spurs. Capt Jack, it is suggested, is unlike George Washington because be tells lies; and yet the most of Captain Jack's crimes [were commit ted with his little hatchet. And Miss Anthony is gnilty ? It is a ^com fort to reflect, however, that there are some innocent people in this world, Mr. [Stokes for instance. < A Pittsburg man had his head shaved be cause he had rashly promised his wife that he would not drink another drop so long as he had a hair on his head. It is transpiring by very deliberate and hes itating degrees that the Chicago jubilee was a failure; but then [it was intended to be nothing more than a St. Louis jubilee any how. A Baltimore paper notices as something re markable that a Scotchman has died in that c:ty who was 111 years old, and was wound ed in the battle of Waterloo. We should think it time that he died. Ignatius L. Donnelly has added to the orig inal sin of his first name the title of “the great mugwund of the Grangers.” In most eases of the kind hellebore is excellent; and if a few pennies can drive away the mugwund Mr. Dounelly ought not to regret the ex pense. Ah! we have been looking for it ever since the warm weather began, and now it has come. That shower of lively frogs, without which no summer can ' be allowed to pass, has come down in Kansas City. It always comes in some of those places where regard for truth has not yet been imported. The frogs which came down the other day in K. C. are said to have “varied in size from that of a piece of coal to a lump of chalk.” Mb. Mill’s Influence in the English Universities.—Mr. Mill never visited the English universities, says Prof. Fawcett, hence it was entirely through his books that he was known. Not one of those who were his greatest admirers at Cambridge when Plot. Fawcett was an under-graduate, had ever seen him, and they used often to say there was no privilege they should value so much as spending an hour in Mr. Mill’s so ciety. This is all the more strikii g because of the intimate friendship which afterward was formed between Mr. Mill and Prof. Fawcett—a friendship in which Mrs. Fawcett also shared, and by her grace and breadth of culture as well as sweetness of character she was well entitled and fitted to share. To the question what is the resul* of Mr. Mill s in fluence in the universities Prof. Fawcett" re plies: I cmnot give anything like a complete answer to this question now; but any one who has observed the marked change which has come over tl e mode of thought in the universities, in the last few yea/s, will be able to form some idea of tlie kind of influ ence which has been exercised by Mr. Mill. Speaking generally, he has obtained a wide acceptance of the utilitarian doctrines; they were presented by Bentham in a form so harsh and unattractive as to produce an almost repelling effect. Mr. Mill, on the con trary, showed that the utilitarial philosophy might inspire the most active benevolence and the most generous enthusiasm. This ac ceptance of utilitarianism has produced a very striking effect in modifying the political opin ions prevalent in the universities. For many years what has been known as the liberalism of young Oxford and Cambridge is in many respects fundamentally different from what is known as liberalism outside the universities, The liberalism of the universities, as as well as that of the Manchester school, are both popularly described as “advanced;” but between the two there is in many essen tials the widest possible divergence. What is known as philosophical radicalism will long bear the impression of Mr. Mill's teaching. Newspaper Correspondents. The New York Evening Post says: A greater fault of the average correspondent is Tiis sublime egotism. He discovers one day that the Genessee falls are situated at Roch ester, and it strikes him as a marvellous dis covery. But his grandfather knew it, and probably was the victim of precisely those impressions which the young man at once so voluminously describes. So with much of what is call “Watering-place correspondence. Peoplebave drank the waters and danced and flirted and made love at Saratoga for years,J and wha tthe new-comer participates in with all the delight of a new experience is a very old story to a great many persons older than he. His weakness lies in his egotism, which, leads him to write common-places, to the end of his long chapter concerning things which are in themselves entirely worthless. Behind this is bis belief that newspapers exist for the purpose of maintaining young men on their travels, to help them through a financial strait, and generally for the diffusion of chari ty. That letter writing is a business requir ing character, knowledge and experience does not enter his head. Th it newspapers are under any obligation to furnish their sub scribers with reading matter of some value as well as of a certain amount is not apparent to him. To earn a penny, and with the convic tion that “anybody can write for a newspa per,” he dashes ahead. That what he writes ofter finds its way into the waste-paper bas ket is not so wonderful as that anything he writes under such circumstances ever escapes that capacious receptacle for useless rubbish. How to Make a IMi stabi) Plasteb.— How many people are there who really know how to make a mustard plaster? Not one in a hundred, at the most, perhaps, and yet m ustard plasters are used in every family, and physicians prescribe their application, never telling anybody how to make them, for the simple reason that doctors themselves do not know, as a rule. The ordinary way is to mix the mustard with water, tempering it with a little flour, but such a plaster as that makes is simply abominable.—Before it has half done its work it begins to blister the pa tient, and leaves him finally .with a painful, flayed spot, alter having produced far less ef fect in a beneficial way (that was intended. Now a mustard plaster should never make a blister at all. . If a blister is wanted, there are other plasters far better than (mustard for the purpose. When you make a mustard plaster, then, use no water whatever, but mix the mustard with the white of an egg, and the result will be a plaster which will “draw-’ perfectly, but will not proiluce a blister’ even upon the skin of an infant, no matter how long it is allowed to remain upou the part. For this we have the word of an old and emi nent physician, as well as our own experi ence. One of the Light Brigade, a survivor of the “noble six hundred’’ who rode “into the mouth of hell” at the famous charge of Bal aklava, lives in Chicago. He entered the British service as a private in the tanks, and served in India and in the Crimean cam paigns. He was frequently promoted for his soldier-like qualities until he finally attained a captaincy. In the “charge of the light brigade,” he received eleven wounds, six of which were severe enough to leave perma nent scars. His story is that of the “noble six hundred;’’ when ordered to charge for the guns,” all thought they had an easy task in the capture of a few l They never dreamed, he says of the 30,000 Russians who were l” ■» "’“if ^hill th« ^“T8’ Five hundred were killed on the field and on ly one escaped unwounded; yet in spite of the storm of shot and shell they spiked the guns, and all that were left of them found their wav back to the (British lines. Of this memorable charge three are now in England, two in Canada and one in Chicago. They each receive a pension of £100 per annum from the British government.
