Love In a Printing Office. NOTE FROM EDITOIi TO COStl'OSlToX. Klli* YOIIKK finds fault with proofs of her story. Says "you correct her MS. in correctly that you have substitu.ed the woid wouderous" for "wondrous that there is no suCh word as wonder otts that you made "overripe" a single word when it is a compound one that, in Bliort, you do not understand your busi ness, or are demented. MITE VKOM COMVOS1TOK TO EDITOR. Biu—Ellis Vorke is mistaken in more respects than one. There is such a word as "wonderous." Let her look in W«b ster's Unabridged, page 1,523, first col umn, sixth line from tup, ami she will find it. Also, overripe" is not a compound word. Evidently she does not know the sign liy which compound words arc dis tinguished, or she would not be so decided in her assertion. And with all due respect for her opin ion, I am not demented," and 1 do un derstand my business, furthermore, if ever mistakes are made it is because Ellis Yorke's M.S. is most illegible. IIcr"r's," s's" and "b's" are all alike, and her "IV' and "b's" might stand for almost anything, and as for punctuation! I sure you I'd rather set up all the rest of your paper than one of her shortest arti cles. NOTE FROM EM,IS TORKE TO COMTOSITOK. Sir—The editor has shown me jour im pertinent remarks, and though h: chooses to look upon our quarrel, as he calls it, in the light of a joke, I regard it as a serious matter. Because you happen to be right about those iletcstob!e words "wondrous" and "overripe," that is no reason you should vilify my MS. V ou may not be aware oL^.( but I took the gold medal for jw/tnu,' ij) when I graduated at the Posthaste Institute last year, and never before, ultliough I have been writing for the New York press for en six months, have I had its legibility called in question. And I won't stand it! I demand from you my story as the editor refuses to pro cure it for me. You shall no longer sneer at my "r's," and "s's," and "l's" and "b's." NOTE FROM COMPOSITOR TO ELLIS YOItKE. Mmlnm—I cannot return MS. placed in my hands. I wish I could—how gladly I would return yours! WHAT SUE SAID AXD DID. Then I resolved to beard the lion in his den—go to the printing-office, ask for Hugh Basset, and with a few prelim inary sarcastic observations request the return of" The Tragedy of Winona Dell." I went. The devil requested me to be seated while he called my enemy. I prepared to meet him (hateful old thin?) with a terrible frown, when, to my great astonishment, instead of a hateful old thing, a tall, handsome young fellow, witii bright, sunshiny smile, eyes like spring violets, and hair that suggested buttercups and dandelions, advanced toward me. It was he—and I said: I beg pardon for the rude things 1 have written to you— and I hope you'll forgive me—and I'm sorry I write so badly, and don't know know how to punctuate, and Good gracious! I didn't intend to say anything of the sort. WHAT IIE SAID. I stepped from my torm, and a pretty girlish face looked up at me with a frown that quickly melted away into a most be witching smile. Ellis Vorke.—I don't know why, but I knew her in a moment, and noted with a heart pang how poorly she was dressed to brave the cold of a winter's day. Evident ly her "over six months writing for the Jiew York press" had notfilledher purse. "I beg your pardon," she said, in a sweet, low voice, raising a pair of the loveliest gray eyes to my face. And then she added: "I'm so sorry I write so bad ly." Don't mention it," I stammered. I didn't mean a word of it. I only wish I could set up your beautiful stories for ever!" And the r's,' and i's,' and 's's,' and 'l's,' and •b's!'" said the saucy, pretty, poor little girl, Are perfection," I replied. The proof I sent away that afternoon, a dissertation on Darwin and his peculiar theories," was returned to me with the question, What the deuce do you mean by placing Ellis Vorbc's name as author of this article instead of Dr. Mega Tfee. Hi uno's V THE EKD OP rr. Harried, AprU 30th, by the Rct. Max TnE Jfininrj Journal says that one of the great objections raised against the Channel Tunnel scheme is the lengtli of time it will take to execute but, if we are to believe the Liberie, this objection has now disappeared. In fact, according to that paper, the tunnel can be completed in less than six months!

The Suez Canal, which is beginning to have a marked influence on commerce in Europe and Asia, is only one of a scries of works which is practically readjusting the globe to the needs and ambitions of civilized man. The change in the course of the Chicago ltiver, turning its waters downward to the Mississippi and the Gulf, is another of these reconstructive enterprises. A few months ago a Trench commission recommended the construc tion of an inland sea in Algeria by turn ing the waters of the Mediterranean into a comparatively barren basin and the possibility of flooding the great desert of Sahara through the Suez Canal has been asserted by English engineers. iul- nings-ort'tlie rails and collisions or trains on the outside, and 2,376 runnings-off the rails and collisions inside the stations, and 1 accidents of divers natures by which the regular service was interrupted.

It is well known that wi:h gases the expansion is found To be ef(ual to several hundred times the liquid, but the elasticity of the fras is also great, while, with the liquid itself, tlie expansion is small, hut the dc veltH-cd forces enormous. In London, oil is expanded liy heat, am! a siowiy mov ing pressure ot ten thousand pounds to the square inch obtained without danger of explosion. Printing presses and rivet ing and punching machines have already been successfully run by this process. Kapid steam pressure by gearing can be converted into slow fiifill pressure and now, to complement theadv* .'-'gcs of this achievement, it is sngg* invention ought to transpose the operation and trans form a slow high pressure into rapid mo tion and less force. The latest anil most striking proiect of this kind kas been started by Mr. Spaul liiiiir, an American engineer, who has planned a method for avvestingthc process which is tilling and dryiug up the Cas pian Sea, and consequently impairing the fertility and productiveness of a vast re gion of Central Asia by cutting off the rain supply and draining the moisture out of the air. The Volga ana Ural and other rivers have poured their earth depos Jte info fiiis grcatbea /bragc.*, tiDtiJ portions of it are no longer navigable and its area is largely rcduced, and the surrounding district is becoming little other than a desert from drought. But this sea is con siderably lower than the Black and the Mediterranean, and by cutting a broad, thep channel from the Black lo the Cas pian the flow of water can be reversed and the Caspian raised to its former level. The advantages of the proposed work, both commercial and agricultural, would he very great, and the enterprising- en gineer maintains that in twenty yours the volume of water flowing through the arti fieial channel would widen it to such an extent that it wordd make it of the great est commercial value, while a commercial city of groat importance would soon be hmlt ou the shores of the Caspian. It is only necessary to study the geography of Western Asia to see the magnitude of the interests involved in the proposed plan and, considering what has already been done in the way of physical improvement, it is not too much to anticipate that even this enterprise may be undertaken. It is almost painful to reflect that the whole gigantic work could be completed for hvo-thirds of the money wasted on the worse than useless and wicked Crimean war.—N. r. Graphic. A Little Girl's Sonmambnlistic Feat. Jennie Lawson is a member of the sec­ ond class in the Eighteenth street female grammar school. Friday last a number of arithmetical examples were given out for solution, but three of them in per centage, requiring long processes of division, re sisted all Jennie's efl'orts to secure the correct answer. The circumstance seemed to distress the child, and alter working through them again and again without success, she went home, determined by persistent efforts to find out where her error was, and she continued to strive until long after the rest of the family had retired. Towards m/dn/gbt her mother, who slept in an adjoining room, called to her daughter that she had better go to bed, lest she should be late in rising the next day. The girl at once retired, and in a few moments was fast asleep. About an hour afterward Dfrs. I.awson was again awakened by a noise in her daughter's bed cliamler, which was then in entire darkness. She called, but receiving no answer, arose to see what was the matter. Jennie was sitting at her desk, and had apparently just completed some work on her slate, the noise having been made by the falling of a ruler from the table to the floor. Tlie girl was fast asleep. Mrs. Lawson did not wake her at that time, and on the following day it was af ternoon before the girl could be roused from the deep sleep in which she seemed to be. Upon awakening" Jennie spoke of the problems, and expressed intention of making a further trial at their solutiln. Upon getting the slate she found them completely solved in her own hand, each line neatly ruled, and the figuring with out the slightest, error. At this she was greatly surprised. Her last knowledge of the puzzling examples was of leaving them unsolved on the night before. Of her performances in bet sleep she knew when awake absolutely nothing, and her mother, net having mentioned the inci dent, left her the more bewildered. Yes terday the girl brought the work to school and related the incident attending it to her teacher. The room was entirely dark, the girl soundly asleep during the work ing out of the test examples. She had never before shown any symptoms of sleep working, nor have any of her rela tives been so affected.—N. T. World. Lieut. Cameron's African Discoveries. Lieut. Cameron, who performed the great feat of crossing Africa from Zanzi bar to tlie western coast, which he reached only toward the end of last year, after a long disappearance in the center of Africa, was entertained recently in the Liverpool Town Hall, where he gave some account of his journey. He is very confident that the river which drains Lake Tanganyika is no other than the Congo, though he had not been able to trace it quite through out its course but his most remarkable statement was this—that the Congo and the Zambesi could be joined by a canal not more than thirty miles in length, so that in that way—barring rapids—water com munication could be established between the cast and west coasts of that wide con tinent. He spoke, too, of the riches of tlie interior as "unspeakably great," and thought that the high-lands of tbe water courses of Benguela on this side ol Tanganyika, would be a great center of African civilization. Clearly the time may come when the Xiie, the Congo and the Zambesi will all be united by the arti ficial connection of their head waters.— London Spectator. Incendiarism in the United States. The report of the Committee on Incen­ diarism and Arson, recently presented to the National Board of Fire Underwriters, in New York, shows that during the past year at least thirty-five per cent, of the number of fires were caused by incendia ries, while fully fifty-five per cent, of the property destroyed was lost by the same cause. The report recommended the ofter ing of rewards for the arrest and convic tion of incendiaries. Fires for the year were 940, and were classed as follows: Defects, WW matches, 214 spontaneous, 100 accidental, 517 carelessness, 777 miscellaneous, 343 unknown,461 incen diary, and suppose^ incendiary, 398 petroleum, in all its forms, 308. Defect ive Hues and foul chimneys cause daily fires. The report of the Committee on Fire Department, Fire Patrol and.

Restoring tbe Caspian Sea. natural color and grain of the wood give a richness and simplicity to the interior that no art can make up for. How the eye loves a genuine thing how it delights in the nude beauty of the wood! A painted surface is a blank, meaningless gnrfacc but the texture and figure of the wood is full of expression. It is the principle of construction again appearing in another field. How endless the variety of figures that appear even in one kind of wood, and, withal, how modest! The grainers do not imitate oak. They cannot. Their surface glares their oak is only skin-deep their figures put nature to shame. Oak is the wood to start with in trimming a house. IIow clear and strong it looks! It is the master wood. When allowed to season in the log, it has a richness and ripeness of tone that is de licious. We have many kinds, as rock oak, black oak, red oaK, white oak—all equally beautiful in their place. Red oak is the softest, and less liable to spring. By combining two different kinds, as red oak and white oak (white oak takes its name from the externa] color of the tree, and not from the color of the wood, which is dark amber color), a most pleasing effect is produced. Butternut is the softest and most tractable of what are called hard woods, and its hue is eminently warm and yellow. Its figure is pointed and shooting—a sort of Gothic style in the grain. It makes admirable doors. In deed, Western butternut, which can usu ally be had in the Albany market, makes doors as light as pine, and as little liable to spring! The Western woods are all better than the Eastern for building pur poses. They are lighter, coarser, easier worked. They grow easier and thriftier. The traveler through -Northera Ohio and Indiana sees a wonderful crop of forest trees, tall, uniform, straight as candles, no knots, no gnarls—all clear, clean tim ber. The soil is deep and moist, and the trees grow rank and rapid. The chestnut, ash and butternut grown here work like pine, besides being darker and richer in color than the same woods grown in lean er and more rocky soils. Western black ash is especially beautiful. In connection with our almost bone-white sugar maples Cor panels, it makes charming doors—just the thing for chambers, and scarcely more expensive than pine. Of our Eastern woods red cedar is also good, with its pungent, moth-expelling odor, and should not be neglected. It soon fades, but it is very pleasing, with its hard, solid knots, even then. No doubt some wash might be applied that would preserve its color. There is a species of birch growing upon our mountains that makes an admir able finish. It is usually called red or cherry l)irch, and it has a long wave or curl that is found in no other wood. It is very tough and refractory, and must be securely fastened. A black ash door, with maple or white pine pannels set in a heavy frame of this red, wavy birch, is a most pleasing chamber finish. For a hard wood floor, in connection with oak or ash, it is to be preferred to cherry. Growing alongside of the birch is the soft maple— the curly species, that must not be over looked. It contains light wood and dark wood, as a fowl contains white meat and dark meat. It is not unusual to find a tree ot this species, the heart of which will be a rich grayish brown, suggesting, hy something in the tone and texture of it, the rarer shades of silk, while the outer part is white, anil hard as ivory. I have seen a wainscoting composed of alternate strips of this light and dark wood from the same tree, that was cxnuisitc, and a great rarity. Aside from its cost I think black walnut should be used very sparingly in finishing. Alone, and in large masses, it i3 too dark, unless the light is very strong and, used in connection with lighter woods, the contrast is too great. Tbe eye soon tires of .sharp, violent contrasts. It is pleased at first, but wearied in the end. In general, that which is striking, or taking, at first sight, is to be avoided in interior finishings or decorations, espec ially iu the main halls, a more pronounced style is permis sible, and the contrast of walnut with pine or maple or oak, is not in bad taste, or open to the objection of being too loud." For mantels, I know of no other wood .' O suitable. And wooden mantels arc what 3011 want. Marble makes good tomb-stones, but it is an abomination in a house, either in furniture or in mantel. The band dislikes it as it docs a corpse, and it oll'ends the eye. Jlarbleized slate is much to be preferred. What one wants in his living-rooms is a quiet, warm touc, and the main secret of this is dark furni ture and hangings, with a dash of color here and there, and floods of light—big windows and plenty of them.—Tech nologist. That Kare. No, she ain't the handsomest critter that ever lived, I du suppose," said Uncle Reuben, running his long, thin fingers through his shaggy locks, but I will de clare, if ever there was a beast to go as if she were follered, and mind her own business on tlie road, she will beat the Dutch. She ain't none of your new fangled, fancy-blooded coots nuthefr, for I raised her myself, and I know. But she'll go, I tell you, and it you'll be careful on her I'll let ye take her jest this once." We felt honored. Here we had come up to the Franconia Mountains the first time in years, and had left the city with the lightest heart and brightest anticipa tions. They were now to be realized. Early spring was the season, and trout was the object of our visit. We had pro vided ourselves with every conceivable necessary of fishing paraphernalia, and all we now desired was a horse to take us to Mad River," which plunges and foams, sparkles and gurgles, dashes and splashes, its brilliant, beautiful way, down toward the Merrimac, from tne fastness of Black Mountain, fifteen miles away. We looked at the marc as she stood with her muzzle thrust through the bars, her winter coat half on, her fetlocks dragging in the mud, her tail docked half way, her mane at loose ends, and several galled places on her sides and neck, in dicative 01 some possible toughness in the harness or thills. But we felt honored. Uncle Reuben was not always willing to let even his nephews drive his horses. We doubted in our hearts that the mare could go,: so, as the old fellow said, but we were glad to get any nag" which would jog us comfortably and safely along 10 the fishing ground. Ye aint goin' alone, be ye?" said Aunt Sally, as that mare and I stood in the "up country" open wagon I ar ranging my tackle," and she with her nose about to touch the earth, her eyes half shut, and one hind foot a tip-toe to rest her leg, before she had traveled a rod. If ye go alone, I'm afraid somethin'll happen to ye." Oh, don't worry," said we, smilingly, the mare don't look very lively." "She is, though," an swered Uncle Reuben, and ye'd better keep a pretty taut rein on her. Good luck to ye!" as we finally flourished the whip, and she" slowly jogged out of the yard. That mare had a queer step. She went as if she was half cat. She stole along almost without a sound. Slowly sheweul and silently. We enjoyed trying to near her feet. In spite of the up-hill, rocky, deep-rutted roads, which in this unsettled seascn were sometimes gouged" almost hall across the way, wc could hardly hear a footstep on the gravel. She had no gait at all. She had nol even two. If she liad any at all, it was a covered, multi plied, myriad-mannered affair, which was one thing and ten other things all at once. She hopped up on one leg and ambled on another. The other kept up a quick pat tering trot, and the fourth, as we say in races, "did the running." Her head she held perfectly stiif. Her nose was slightly elevated heavenward, and it did not vary an inch in three miles. We laughed at her and enjoyed her. We paid no attention to the driving, but, seeing she was perfectly safe, gazed about us on the exquisite mountain scen ery, the caps of snow glistening in the glorious light of the tresh, clear day, tne first glimpses of green along the book ways, the budding of the willows, the somber darkness of the pine-clad hills and all the infinite tiny beauties which to the close observer are never absent from the country landscape. As we were curiously watching the flight of three black crows," which were making specks of themselves across a mountain hollow, we noticed the mare had quickened her pace. The old wagon began to jincle its loose screws in a little livelier manner, and the creak of a wheel which needed oiling began to be sugges tive. What caused this increase in veloc ity we knew not and cared not. We drew therein "taut," as we had been advised, and were pleased at our rate of speed. The mare kept on. She went gradual ly faster. IIow she went no tongue can tell. There is no language capable ot describing the sixteen ways she went at once. But she kept in the road, and she "minded her business" well. She went a little faster all the time. She began to get down to a three-minute gait. Wc concluded this was swift enough for com fort. Up hill and down, over gullies and stones, on she went. We mildly insin uated that she might get tired. We pulled on the reins and shouted whoa." Wc got tired. That mare continued to get along—slowly but surely gettingdown to2-~0. We were by this time a little anxious. We had been so busy chatting in a friendly way to the mare, telling her that her health might suffer, that we had forgotten to keep track of the guide posts. We were not sure that wc were hurrying the right way. But we were sure we were hurrying. .So was the dry wheel. It screamed, it protested, it insisted that it would do something dreadful if some stop was not put to its heated and tired con dition but that mare pursued her own way. Mad River was reached and passed, an unfamiliar line of straight poplars was passed, and in spite of rein and voice, command and entreaty, the inexorable creature still kept right along about her business. We looked back at the happy hunting-grounds wc left behind us we looked forward into the unknown land into which we were going,- and we joined with the wagon and harness and wheel and tackle, which was shaken about the floor of the go-cart," and the tin lunch eon pail which kept rolling from one side to the other, and the bottle and tumbler which continually hit each other, and lift ed up our voice and cried aloud. Not so that mare- She kept the road and went" as if she was followed." We knew, then, that truth and honesty were Uncle Reuben's. We knew, then, that prudence was Aunt Sally's. Like the steady, persistent method of a steam engine and with something of its speed, we all went forward—no stop, no whoa, no let up," no, "rest," no "peace," until the smoke from the old chimney of Uncle Keubcn's kitchcn loomed into view, and the smoke from the hub of the now desperate wheel puffed about us, when the mare stopped at the door, and instantly resumed her favorite position— her nose on the earth, and one foot a tip toe to rest her le Unnatural Parents.

Hacr/ues and his wife had the charge ol an estate at Laval. They had been married some years, and possessed four children—two girls, the elder, Marie, aged six, and two boys, Auguste and Constant, aged respectively three and four. On the 2oth of Septem ber hist Hacques went to the Police Com missary, and said that some gypsies had robbed his money-chcst and stolen his two sons from the house during the absence of himself and wife in the fields. The gen darmes were at once put on the search, but no trace of the gypsies or the children could be found. Suddenly one of the gendarmes thought of a deep well which lies in a secluded corner of the estate, but Hacaues contended it was useless to go there, as it was not atalllikely the gypsies had drowned his sons. The gendarme, however, smelt a rat, and on arriving at the well the bodies of the poor little victims were discovered at the bottom. The police were convinced the boys hail been murdered by their parents in order to reduce the family expenses, the father having often complained of his boys costing him t»o much." The chief wit ness against the prisoners was their eldest daughter Marie. Here is the child's ex amination in court: You had two little brothers?" "Yes they were drowned in the well." "In what well?" In the well at home." "Who threw them into the well?" "Papa." "Where did he take them from?" "From their bed." Where were you at the time?" I was in the big bed." Did you follow your father when he went to the well?'' Y'es." Did he say anything?" "Y'es he told me to hold my tongue." Did he take your two little brothers together or sepa rately?" He took them together, under each arm." Did they cry?" Oh, yes, sir." "When your mother came home what did she say?" She said she could not find the brats." Did you see the money-chest broken open?" "Y'es." Who did it?" "Papa, sir." "What did be take out?" "The money." The evidence against the mother being in sufficient, she was acquitted, but the father was sentenced to hard labor for life, much to the surprise of the people in court, who expected he would have keen sent to the guillotine.—Pari1 Cor. Lon don. Echo. A Banting Roc lb Thh family of Mr. J. G. Freeland,who lives seven miles from this city, on the North Carolina railroad, bore witness, on Friday last about midday, to a singular sight. Some member of the family was standing on tlie porch when, casting his eye forward, he saw a bright light, of an egg shape, spring up from the ground about 200 yards from the house, on a small eminence close to the railroad. He called the attention of the other mem bers of the family to the sight, and they watched it until it reached the size of a half-bushel measure. After burning this way for a while the light suddenly went out, and those who had seen it ran to tbe spot where it had been seen. There they found a rock, which, as they could tell from one side of it, was a white flint. It was very black on one side, and was too hot to be handled at first. When it had cooled it was taken up and broken readily in two. It was found very brittle, and could be taken in the hand and mashed up as can a piece of charcoal. The facts are undeniable, and can be eas ily established. There are, we believe, similar instances on record, and the burn ing is said to be caused by gaseous exha lations from earth which lies above gold deposits.—Charlotte (N C-) Observer.

The Superstitions Beliefs of the Kir* ghiz. M. D. Conway writes to the Cincinnati Commercial that Dr. Eugene Schuyler, Secretary of the United States Legation at St. Petersburg, was recently in London, having come there to correct the proof sheets of his work on Turkistan before proceeding to his duties at Constantino ple. From advance sheets left in his possession, Mj. Conway semis the follow ing extracts giving an account «f the cu rious superstitous notions and customs of the people of Turkistan During the few days I passed in this garden I learned many proprieties as well as many superstitions of Mussulman life. For instance I was shown how to eat a melon. According to the Koran, when an animal is killed for food, its throat must be cut in order that the blood may all run out. By transfer of ideas the melon is treated in the same way. First, its throat is cut—a small incision is made in the end farthest from the stem 'hen Its head is cut off by slicing off a small piece after that it is cut up lengthways, and with one or two dexterous turns of the knife the flesh is removed from the rind and cut into thin, small slices, which are pushed out alternately by the knife. When a man drinks water, he should first take one swallow slowly, while repeating to himself the name of Allah, and then take two swallows, after which he can gulp down as much as he pleases. When a person hiccoughs it is common to say,'You stole some thing from me.' This is supposed to bring good luck. If you sneeze when 1 speak to you, it shows that I am right. If a person sneeze three times it is very un lucky. Yawning is a most sinful and dangerous practice, and arises from an evil place in your heart, ham thaitan, which is getting ready for the reception of an evil spirit. Mohammed never yawned, for when he was four years old he was one day seized in the desert by the angel Gabriel, who pounced upon him It is, however, the sheep which con stitutes his chief wealth, that furnishes the Kirghiz with the best material fur forecasting the future. The shin bone of a sheep is always placed abovj the door of a kibitka to keep out robbers, and men sometimes take one as a charm on a jour ney. In order to prove to me th# cfflcacy of this charm, one of the jigils told me the story of a Kirghiz, who, when he was going on a long journey, was besought by his wife to carry with him a small bag which she gave him, and which he was always to keep fastened to the saddle of his horse, and never to untie. After he had accomplished the fortieth day of his journey, his horse being weary, his eye flesh. This is gradually calcined and the night, makes certain fixed prayers which are considered necessary, and has a dream appropriate to the occasion, which he explains on the foilowing d&y. The test of a dream is nearly always re sorted to in cases where a person wishes to join a religious community. Such a person presents himself to the pir, or leader, and asks to be a member.

A family from Southern Kansas, con­ sisting of a husband, wife and three chil dren, passed through this city in a covered wagon yesterday afternoon, and the following sad chapter in their history was related by the man: He stated that they left Kansas on the 1st of March, with the intention of joining a number of fam ilies, formerly from Kansas, who are now living in Brown County. They traveled rapidly, and met with no mishaps until last Sunday morning, when their little babe, aged about eighteen months, was sudJenly taken ill and died. The grief of the poor mother on the death of her child kaew no bounds in fact, she be came temporarily insane, and when her husband wished to bury the body of the infant she clutched it wildly in her arms and tied from him and hid herself in the woods, where she remained over night alone with the corpse. It was not until nearly noon on the following day that he finally found her. She was so completely exhausted by that lime that he had but little difficulty in takirg her back to the wagon. She was induced to take some nourisnment, and soon after fell asleep. While she lay sleeping the little corpse was placed in a rough ly-constructed box, and the father and children buried it under a live-oak tree by the roadside. The mother slept several hours, and awoke with lier mind restored. She assisted her husband in building a fence around the like a bird and cut out the evil place from lone little grave, and then, with many his heart.

Examiner. spirits that will at once come to von. Among the more puritanical folk laugh ter is also bad, and it is said that llanil'y, one of the famous Mussulman doctors, lost half of Asia for Islam by laughing. Whistling also is bad. If a husband whistle, something will happen to 1»ia wife and if children whistle, their father or mother will die. Whistling, too, ia supposed to bring wind, and the Kirghiz frequently whistrcs for that purpose. A buzzing in one's ears shows that a man is dead, and a prayer is always repeated. There is a beautiful legend connected with this. In heaven there is a tree, on each leat of which is wriuea the name of some soul, and what men call a buzzing in their ears is a rustling of one of these leaves as it falls from the tree. If the noise in your ears be a ringing as of bells, then it is a Christian soul whose l»af has fallen, and who is to die -, and so for each faith the noise is different. There also exist many similar superstitions with re gard to the twitchings of different parts of the body, called tentakmak. There is a little bird named karbiyitch, the forked tail of -which is always trembling. This tail, if you keep it about you, will always ward off ill luck. It is, therefore, a very common part of a woman's head-dress. There is another belief, too, about the karligatcJt. If when ycu first see this bird in the spring you the ground under the oig toe of your right foot, you will find a coal.

Among the Kirghiz the magriie (ak/i) is a very ominous bird, and they careful ly watch its comings and goings. If a Kirghiz hears one of these cry, he goes out to look. If the magpie be on the east, it means guests if on the west, a jour ney if on the north, bad luck if on the south, some remarkable event. With re gard lo the crow there are similar super stitions, and, among others, it is said that the kar'ja, or ordinary crow, and the kok karffa, or green crow of the steppes, never met until the Russians came.

In Bukhara, if, in crossing a stream, a horse should stumble and let the rider get wet, it is thought to be the great est good luck. To meet a woman un mounted, or with nothing in her hands, is to have bad luck but if you meet any one on horseback, especially a young man, with something in his hands, you will have good luck.

Savage. Read Your Bible Daily. The celebrated painter, Benjamin Robert Ilaydon. gave the following aa mirable advice to his son at a very criti cal time of his life: You are iinite right to read history make yourself master of the histories of Greece and Rome. The English people are in many respects not unlike the Athenians without their art, and like the Romans without their profligacy. Read your Bible daily. There is no more interesting book in the world, and it is becoming more necessary to read and study it, because I already happened to rest upon this bundle, and perceive a tendency among our scientific he began to wonder what he had been men, in all their pride of knowledge and carrying so long on cutting it open he saw forty bones, which, thinking them to be a useless burden, he threw away. That very night he was attacked by robbers, who had been watching liim for forty days, and lost his horse and everything which he had. "The most common method of divining the course of human events, is to place on the coals the shoulder-blade ot a sheep which has been carefully cleaned of the what they call disc overy, to set the Bible aside as an oriental legend. Do not be lieve them. The Mosaic account of the creation is the most simple and the most natural, and will be found, you may rely on it, confirmed by science, when science has got down to tlie real facts. Generali zation, lounJed on our present know ledge of the laws of nature, is the very thing which our present acquaintance with those laws does not justify. I am con vinced that no thoroughly established and Mlt ,cd the cracks, the color, and the small par ticles which fall away from it, denote •ood or bad luck, or the various accidents which may happen on an expedition. When a Kirghiz is about to start on a plundering expedition, or indeed on any thing which requires luck as well as skill, he always first tries this process, and sometimes will stop in the middle of his way, light a fire, and consult this oracle. Among the more settled population, es pecially among the upper classes, fate is usually consulted by more refined meth ods, practiced by individuals who devote themselvts to that as a profession, and in all the large towns there are regular as trologers. A fulbin foretells the future by opening the koran at hazard, and endeavoring to explain the first verse which meets his eye in re gard to the event about which the question is asked. Another book is the Jalal-eddin-rytmiof Masnavi. This method is in every way analogous to the Sortes Vergiliana, or to the bible lots practiced among some Christian sects. Great re gard is paid to dreams, and their explana tion is always a matter of anxiety. There is, for instance, the process called istak hari, praying for a fateful dream. The usual method is to consult a holy man, or saint, and ask for the decision of heaven as to the course about which you wish to be informed. The saint, on retiring for in e°found to contradict the truths revealed in the Bible. But you are too young yet for me to enter further on the subject. I only tell you of it to put you on your guard. You will find many men, old and grown-up men, who will laugh at the Bible. JUon't believe them.

A German paper relates a pleasing an ecdote of the late Ferdinand Freiligrath. The poet had a passion for visiting mer chant vessels, and while in a Belgian sea port, in company with a friend, went on board a stalely ship which was about to sail for Canton. The boatswain conduct ed the two strangers about the deck, but stated that as the .ptain was entertain ing company he could not take them into the cabin. At this moment the cabin door opened and the Captain came forth. Freiligrath and his friend apologized, whereupon the former politely insisted that they should take a look at his quar ters. They entered, and found, among other things, a select little library con taining the complete edition of Freili grath's poems. "Isn't it pleasant to think that your poems are going around the w«rld?" asked the friend. "What do vgu mean?" said the Captain. This," the former replied, "is the author of these volumes." What! the poet Freili grath?" Thereupon the Captain rushed on deck, ordered the vessel to lie dressed with flags, the crew to prepare for parade, and, after entertaining the poet and his friend with the best his larder and locker contained, dismissed them with all the state and ceremony reserved for crowned a piece of butter and a little pepper, in a spider when boiling, stir in the yelk of an egg, and one tablespoon of Hour to thicken have your dried beef finely shared, and pour into the boiling mixture.

The same article also takes up the subjects of diagnosis, methods of consultation and treatment, etc., and will be found tocoiilain many val nable hints to the invalid. Dr. Pierce is the author Vf a work which has already attained a larce circulation—" The People's Common Sense Medical Adviser"—containing some nine hundred numerously-illustrated pages, and devoted to medicine in all its branches, a work well calculated for the guidance and instruction of the people at large, and which mav be had for 11.50 (pojt-paul) by addressing the author.
