—Tho idea that lightning is not so
destructive as it used to be in the
United States, because the network of
railroads and telegraph wires lessens
the number of accidents, is met by the
record of the summer. Fatal thunder
bolts have never been more common.
—Some of the reasons for distress in
Ireland last year are shown in the
statistics of crops gathered in 1881 and
1882. There was a decrease in all of
the more important agricultural pro
ducts, amounting in potatoes to nearly
a million and a half tons. This de
crease alone would account for a great
deal of suffering.
A well-posted treasury official gives
it as his opinion that there are at least
fifteen million trade dollars in the
New York banks and depositories, and
that before Congress meets the amount
will be increased to twenty millions.
He says that the syndicate of specula
tors who have taken hold of the trade
dollar will move on Congress with a
powerful lobby next winter, and that
there is $2,000,000 or $2,500,000 in the
job if they can induce the government
to legitimize the coin.
The Medical Neirs says: "We have
previously stated that it is improbable
that cholera will reach the United
States this year, but that it is an even
chance that we shall have it next year.
Since that opinion was published the
danger has diminished very little, if
any, and while there is not tho slight
est occasion for panic, there is very
urgent need of enforcing cleanliness,
of looking to the purity of the water
supply, and of great care in the ad
ministration of our quarantine stations.
The geographical limits of some o\.
the world's great cities seem to War
but little relation to the number of
their inhabitants. New York now
includes 111 square miles, or 26,500
acres; Faris, within the fortifications,
consists of 281 square miles, or 18,315
acres; London has 122 square miles, or
about 77,0(10 acres; Philadelphia, with
a population of SIR), 000, has the sur.
prisiug geographical area of 129 square
miles—which is considerably more
than is covered by London, even with
all its modern additions of what were
not long ago outlying and separate
The Christian at Work thinks it is a
perfect marvel how some of the letters
which fall into the puzzled hands of
post-oflice officials ever reach their des
nation. The "blind readers," as those
are called who decipher hieroglyphics
seem to be able to follow any clew,
however slight it may be. and to find
a person to whom a letter is addressed,
even when the writer gives no intima
tion. When a man who sees the words
'Signigic"s Hotel' can guess correctly
that it means St. Nicholas Hotel, he
has, indeed, a faculty for reading a
superscription which consists of "nine
hieroglyphics, five scratches, three dots,
and a blot," and should hold his office
for life.
The business of condensing milk is
likely to be a growing one, as it enables
farmers at a distance from cities to get
as good prices for milk as those who
live near enough to supply them with
fresh milk. Condensing milk is simply
evaporating a portion of the water,
which is its chief constituent, the milk
being then sweetened with sugar for
its better preservation. If it be used
within a few days, the sugar is not
necessary. In both cases, the condens
ed milk, when to be used is diluted
with water to the natural condition of
good, rich milk. For ships' use or ex.
pertation, this is the only way that
milk can be safely or economically
Sunlit Rooms.
No article of furniture should be put
in a room that will not stand sunlight
for every room in a dwelling should
have the windows so arranged that
sometime during the day a flood of
sunlight will force itself into the apart
ment. The importance of admitting
the light freely to all parts of our
dwelling cannot be too highly estimat
ed. Indeed, perfect health is nearly as
dependent on pure sunlight as it is on
pure air. Sunlight should never be
uncomfortable to the eyes, and walks
should be in bright sunlight, so that
the eyes are protected by veil or para
sol when inconveniently intense. A
sun-bath is of more importance in pre
serving a healthful condition of the
body than is generally understood. It
costs nothing, and that is a misfortune,
for people are deluded with the idea
that those things can only be good and
useful which cost money. But remem
ber that pure water, fresh air and sun
lit homes, kept free from dampness,
will secure you from many heavy bills
of the doctors, and give you health and
vigor, which no money could procure.
It is an established fact t hat people
who live much in the sun are usually
stronger and more healthy than those
whose occupations deprive them of
sunlight. And certainly there is noth
ing strange in the result, since the
same law applies with equal force to
nearly every animate thing in nature.
It is quite easy to arrange an isolated
dwelling so that every room in it may
he flooded with sunlight some time in
the day. and it is possible that many
town houses could be so built as to .ad
mit more light than they now receive.
SIMPLE ELIXIR.—A very pleasant
vehicle for the administration of medi
cines which are to be given in solution
is prepared by mixing together two
(hiid ounces each of orange-flower
water and simple syrup, adding half a
fluid ounce of alcohol to preserve, and
coloring with two drachms of com
pound tincture of cardamons. This
will be found of service to the coun
try physician who is obliged to dis
pense his own medicine.
11. Talcott, superintendent of the New
York state homoeopathic asylum for
the insane, says that our national lack
is fiat of recuperating sleep. Against
the use of the so-called hypnotics in
massive doses he protests, because the
temporary benclits aro heavily dis
counted by the evil efferts which al
most always follow. Two conditions
oppose the requirements of sleep.
These are hypenemia cf the brain—
stimulating it to undue activity, and
playing the part of a whip and spur
to a tired horse— the opposite of
hypenemia. excessive cerebral amentia.
To relievo the former by rational
methods, the blood forces must be en
ticed away from "their persistent as
saults upon the cranial fortress." This
can best be accomplished by tilling the
stomach with solid food, thus "furnish
ing temporary engagement for the
pugilistic globules on other tields."
The food should be of the coarsest
and plainest, else the remedy might
produce an aggravation. Should ex'
cessive aniemia exist, and a state of
nerve irritability and trepidation be
thus produced, take liquid foot!, such
as hot milk, beef tea, and broths, about
an hour before sleep is intended. This
is of peculiar value to persons of sed
vLiary habits, to those who take too
little exercise, and to those who suffer
from imperfect circulation. Sleep
may usually be obtained, after a hard
and irritating day's work, by a warm
bath, a cold douche, and a brisk rub
bing following that, just previous to
retiring fur the night. Fresh air
should be freely supplied in every
sleeping room; yet the sleeper should
be protected from even moderate
draughts; for these, though apparently
slight at first, will produce chilliness
of one poition of the body, while an
other may be overheated, and thus a
disturbing inequality of circulation
ensues. Beds should be firm in tex
ture, level, and well elevated from the
floor, for thus complete circulation
around the bed is secured.
Tarring n Rat.
Rats are wonderfully cleau animals,
and they dislike tar more, perhaps,
than anything else, for if it once gets
on their jackets, they find it most dilli
culfc to remove it. Now, 1 had heard
it mentioned that puuring tar down at
the entrance of their holes was a good
remedy, also placing broken pieces of
glass by their holes was another
remedy. But these remedies are not
effective. The rats may leave their
old holes and make fresh ones in other
parts of the house; they don't, how
ever, leave the premises for good. I
I thought I would try another experi
ment—one I had not heard of before.
One evening I set a large wire-cage
rat-trap, attaching inside a most
seductive piece of strongly smelling
cheese, and next morning I found, tc
my satisfaction, that I had succeeded
in trapping a very large rat, one of the
largest 1 had ever seen, which, after J
had besmeared him with tar. I let loose
into his favorite run. The next night
I tried again, and succeeded in trap*
ping another equally big fellow, and
served him in the tame manner. ]
could not follow these two lar-besmear
ed rats into their numerous runs, to
see what would happen ; but it is rear
sonable to assume that they either
summoned together all the members of
their community, and by their crest
fallen appearance gave their comrades
silent indications of the misfortune
which had so suddenly befallen them ;
or that they frightened their brethren
away, for they one and ;dl forsook the
place and fled. The experiment was
eminently successful. From that day
in 1875 till now, 1883, my house,
ancient though it is, has been entirely
free from rats; and I believe that
there is no remedy equal to this
one, if you can catch your rat alive.
They never come back to the house
again.— Chambers' Journal.
Naming a Lake.
Years ago, it was discovered that a
certain lake which had long been con
sidered the head of the Mississippi, had
no claim to that honor. The explorers
found a new and smaller lake from
which the great river took its rise. A
discussion arose as to what name would
be appropriate for it. The story is
that it was decided in this way:
"Let's make a new name by coining
a word," said an old voyager. "Some
of you larned ones tell me what is the
Latin for true."
"Y r eritas," answered a scholar.
"Well, now, what is Latin for
"Now write the two words together
by syllables."
The scholar wrote on a strip of
birch-bark, "Veritas caput."
"Read it."
The five syllables were read.
"Now drop the first and last sylla
bles and you'll have a good name for lake." And "Itasca" it was.

Slaves of Fashion.
Tho actual drudgery of fashionable
life falls upon women. To toil for a
placo in society, to give precious after
noons to the labor of j aying calls, and
to allow indifferent acquaintances, as
Emerson said, to devastate the day, to
give constant thought to tho revision
of one's toilette and the improve tn *nt
of one's visiting list, this is to be a
slave to things. And if tho slave do
not feel her fetters, so much the worse
for her. Many women have not time
for the unhurried delight of their
children's presence, for reading any
thing beyond tho last new novel, for
ary occupation higher than the nar
rowing round they call their domestic
and social duties !

Good News from Texas.
Mr. THOMAS A. HOWAUJ, of Ilouey Grove,
Fannin County, Texas, under date of April 5,
1683, writes as follows:
" I have been suffering during Sevcial years
from severe illness, niul a general breaking
down of my physical system, and have tried
the treatment and prescriptions of many
doctors far and near, and traveled to the Hot
B.irings und other mineral springs famous
for their remedial qualities, drinking the
water* and bathing systematically in their
healing depths, but all to no avail, as 1 steadily
failed in health; and although informed by
my physicians that my ailments and weak
nesses were th. result of kidney disease of a
dangerous character, they could give me
nothing to cure me. During the nast two
years my sufferings at times were dreadful,
und I bad the mo-t indescribable pains in the
regions about the kidneys, the paroxysms of
which were so severe as to lender it imjossi
blo for uie to sleep. While in tins deplo able
and discourage! condition I was persuaded
to try limit's Remedy, and after using less
than half a bottle my great sufferings aid
paroxysms of pain were entirely i elieved, and
1 could sleep better and longer iban I had in
two \ears before, nnd although I am now on
my third bottle only my improvement is very
remarkable, and I regret that 1 did not know
of the wonderful curative powers of Hunt's
Remedy before, as it would have saved me
3 ears of suffering. I heartily recommend it
to nli afflicted with any kidney dist .se 0*
disease of the urinary organs."
"nil My Cur Exactly."
Please allow me to speak in the highest
terms of Hunt's Keirndy, for it hit my case
exactly. I had kidney and urinary trouble
pretty bad. I was recommended Hunt's
Remedy. I took one teaspoonful as directed.
1 felt a decided change at the first dose. I
took two bottles, anu have felt like a new
man ever since. Please receive the sincere
thanks of myself for the benefits which 1
sought vainly for and found only in Bunt's
Remedy. I will cheerfully give this same
opinion of Hunt's Remedy to any one who
wishes it, by addressing

THE MINISTER WHO FAILS to interest his congrega
tion and build up his church is generally accused of beinga poor preacher'
or of not studying hard enough. is not always where the trouble
comes from. Dyspepsia and liver disorders are responsible for manv n
dull sermon and many a vacant pulpit. When the Dominic's digestive
apparatus is working wrong and his nerves are giving him pain and hi*
brain refuses to do its duty, it is almost impossible to make or to preach n
good sermon.,, Give your suffering minister a bottle of Brown's Rb
