The gorillas are the terror of Africa.
In the gorilla country no lion will
live. They are man-eaters, and kill
them for the love of it, leaving the
body, never eating it. When they spy
a negro, they come down from a tree,
hit him on the head with a club, which
they wield with their hind claw, or
carry him up into tho tree, there to
murder him. Their strength is [so
great that they will bend the barrel of
a rifle. Only one live one was ever
brought to England, and that soon
died. Several have been shot, but
they are tough customers, and the
natives dread them more than any
animal of the African forests. The
gorilla makes a bed like a hammock,
and swings in the trees. The gorilla
is a sworn enemy of the elephant,
because each derives subsistence from
the same source. When he sees an
elephant pulling down and wrenching
off the branches of a favorite tree, the
gorilla steals among the boughs, strikes
the sensitive proboscis of the elephant
a terrible blow with his club, and
drives off tho clumsy and startled
giant, shrilly trumpeting his pain and
rage through the jungles of the forest.

lloir Tliey Made Out.
"1 don't know," said Margaret, "how
we shall make out; but we can't let
the child starve." Margaret, was the
house-mother in a (ierimui home,
whero money was scarce, and plain
food was not plenty.
A stranger had come along the
street, and stopped at the door, and
asked if he might have some supper
with the family, lie was watching
the yellow-haired little girl who follow
ed Margaret around, which made her
speak the sentence with which this
"Then she isn't your own child?"
asked the stranger.
"No!" Margaret explained that she
was the child of a poor neighbor who
died a few weeks before, leaving no
thing for the little girl, and no friends
for her to go to. So they had to take
"And can't you manage to keep
her?" the stranger asked. "And have
none of your own, I suppose?"
"Oh, .<Jear, yes!" and she laughed
over his queer mistake. None of their
own! Why, there were ten in all.
When supper was ready, they all
trooped in. What a little army of
them! and how clean their little faces
were! their hair neatly combed, and
their patched and worn clothes looking
as though each of them had been as
careful as possible. At the supper
table, each of them looking out for
Gretchen, she had tho largest potato,
carefully peeled by Margaret, the
mother's name-child; Melcher, the
father's namesake, put a bit of butter
on it, though he ate none on his own-
The stranger saw all this and a grea
deal more, though he seemed to be
talking with the father and mother.
The next day a soldier in military
dress rode up to the house, and asked
for the house-mother, and gave her a
great, solemn-looking letter which
made her tremble as she broke the
seal. Oh, what do you think that let
ter said ? Why, that the man who had
taken supper with them the night be
fore was so pleased with the ten chil
dren, and with Gretchen besides, that
he decided to make them each a present
of SIOO, which would be paid to them
each year while they lived! One thou
sand and one hundred dollars each
year because a strange man took sup
per with them, was pleased with thei r
kindness to hiin, and their unselfish
care of the orphan Gretchen! That
sounds like a "make-up" story, doesn't
it? And yet it is true. The letter
was signed, Joseph, Emperor of Aus
tria. And he was the stranger who

According to Jensen, the potato dis

the tubers by means of spores washed
into the soil by rain. lie, therefore
proposes to prevent this by running a
plow between the rows, so as to throw
up a furrow upon the top of the hills,
■while at the same time the tops are
bent over so as to hang above the
neighboring furrow. This should be
done at least as soon as the disease
shows itself on the tops, usually by the
middle of August. In this way the
washing of the spores into the hill is
prevented. Furthermore, the potatoes
should not be dug for at least two or
three weeks after the tops are entirely
wilted, to avoid .infection from the
latter. Field experiments with this
method are said to have given very

A Sblioolboy on Corns.
Corns arc of two kinds —vegetable
and animal. Vegetable corn grows
in rows, and animal corn grows on toes.
There are several kinds of corn : There
istlie unicorn, the eaprieorn, pop corn,
corn dodgers, field corn, and the corn,
which is the corn your l'eet feel most.
It is said, I believe, that gophers like
corn, but persons having corns do not
like to "go fur" if they can help it.
Corns have kernels, and some colo
nels hove corns. Vegetable corn grows
on the ears, but animal corn grows 011
feet, at tho other end of the body.
Another kind of corn is the acorn;
this grows on oaks, but there is 110
hoax about the corn. The acorn is a
corn with an indefinite article added.
Try it and see. Many a man when he
has a corn wishes it was an acorn.
Folks that have corns sometimes
send for a doctor, and if the doctor
himself is corned he probably won't do
so well as if bo isn't. Tho doctor says
corns are produced by tight boots and
shoes, which is probably the reason
why w hen a man is tight they say ho
If a farmer manages well, he can
get a good di al of corn on an acre, but
1 know of a farmer that has the corn
that makes the biggest aeher on his
farm. Tho bigger crop of vegetable
corn a man raises, the better he likes
it ; but the bigger crop of animal corn
he raises the better he does not like it.
Another kind of corn is the corn
dodger. The way it is made is very
simple, and it is as follows—that is if
you want to know : You go along the
street and meet a man you know has
a corn, and a rough character; then
you step 011 the toe that has the corn
on it, and see if you don't have occa
sion to dodge. in that way you w ill
liiul out what a corn dodger is.
The progress of science has scarcely
tffeeted tho methods in use in the
kitchens. Few cooks know that in
I toiling meats and vegetables it is the
heat which does the work, and so they
keep the pot boiling vigorously all the
while, simply to evaporate water,
which must he replaced by repeated
additions, w hen a constant tempera
ture near the boiling point would ac
complish the same result with no boil
ing, and a great saving of heat. Bub
stanees containing albumen, like meat
and lifh, are put intocolil water, which
allows the albumen to he dissolved out
and wasted, the most nutritious part
of the food, when they should ho put
into water nearly boiling hot to for 11
a hard coat over the outside and pre
vent all loss. Hut this pointing out of
mistakes and abuses will not aid ; we
w ill try to show a better way.
Kggs are usually boiled three or four
minutes. This is a mistaken method.
To cook an egg properly, the white, or
albumen, should he just curdled, while
the yolk should he hardened. Now,
the yolk hardens at a t-mpreture w hen
the albumen curdles, llut if cooked
in boiling water the albumen is hard
ened, since it hardens at that temp
erature, while very often tho yolk is
not hardened, because the egg is re
moved before the yolk is properly
heated. The correct method, then, is
to place the egg in a small amount of
boiling water, remove the vessel from
the stove and let it cool. After ten or
lil'leui minutes remove the egg and it
will he found properly cooked ; the al
bumen coagulated but not hardened ;
the yolk hardened.

Flowers in Potatoes.
A gentleman from Utica, in Louis
ville, who wished to send some beauti
ful flower buds to his wife, was at a
loss how to do so. A florist friend
said he would fix them. He cut a po
tato into two pieces and bored holes in
them, into which he inserted the stems
of the buds, and placed them in a box
with cotton to support them. A let
ter from tho recipient acknowledged
the remembrance, and said that the
buds had developed into full blown
flowers. There is sufficient moisture
in a good sized potato to support a
flower for two weeks in a moderately
cool temperature. Flowers from bou
quets may he preserved in the same
way. The potatoes can ho hidden by
leaves or mosses.
Puzzling the Assayers.
A clerk in a New Orleans freight
office recently sent a silver dollar to
the office of the mint to ascertain if it
was genuine. The assayer made a test
with acid and pronounced it counter
feit. it was then found to weigh one
half grain more than the legal limit of
he standard dollar. It was measured
md found to he correct in diameter,
he reeding was counted and found to
orrespond with the genuine dollar.
I'iie gentleman from whom the mint
•eeeived the dollar, having been tele
phoned that it was counterfeit, and a
>aso one, gave permission to make a
borough assay, and the assay proved
t to be a genuine "daddy" dollar, and
omebody had nickle-plateil it.

down into Florida in the fell to s-v what kind

around my back. My app.>'.ito was wh lv
gone, and 1 felt a lack of i nor, y su has 1 had
often heard d Bcr b il but had never exper.-

attack of malaria can appreciate my condi
tion. I went to be I and remain-d there all
spring, and if th re ever was a sick man I
was the one."
"It seems bard'.y possible. How did you

| "My brother, who had Nvn afflicted by a
cv ie kiluey tn übfe an 1 threatened with
Bright's disease, was completely cured by a

th- rcfore tried the same remedy for my ma

to day, an-1 tbn-u h the instrumentality of
"Warner's Safe Cure, which 1 b 1 eve to be one
of the most valuable of medicine*. Indeed. I
see it is indorsed by the Unite 1 Stiles nicdi
ea' coll' ge of New V- rk, and th.it lr. Gunn,
d-an of that institution, l.av written a long
article eon- eining its value."
" And are y-*u now a well as formerly?"
"Appar- ntly so. Ike p the lxinedy on
hand all the while, though, and do not hesi
tate to recommend it to oilers."
"One question more. How many ponds o'
fish have you here, and how are tlicy divide If
" Well, we have forty-throe jtonds, wu.cn
nre divided upasfo'lows: Twcnty-twoponls
of brook trout, two ponds of salmon trout,
four of McCloud river or rainlniw trout, two
jonds of German trout, three of Califor

range in si/e from minnows to eight* eu

months to eleven years. 1 forgot to

pretty well for a community of many mil

The numerous fish exhibitions which are
taking place in all raris of Europe and the
unusual interest which is being manifested in
this subject throughout the world all owe
their origin to the proce-s above described as
originated and conducted by Both Green.

Healthy People Sometimes Laugh
At the sufferings of dyspeptics, and say that their pains and distresses are
imaginary. This is not meant for cruelty, but it is cruelty, all the same.
A person who has a crooked foot, or a wounded hand, or a sightless eye,
calls forth sympathy by the exhibition of the defective member. If the
dyspeptics sufferer's stomach could be placed on exhibition, the cause of
his distress would be apparent. .
The man with a troublesome stomach often suffers quite as much as
the man with a broken leg, but is far less likely to receive sympathy, t
Sympathy is good for sufferers, as far as it goes. But Brown's Iron
Bitters is better, for it strikes at the root of these troubles, and cures dis
ease. Disappointed dyspeptics, weary of having tried many experiments
in seeking cure, will do well to make one fair trial of Brown's Iron Bitters
and report the result. That this well-tried family medicine will thus dimin
ish the quantity of human suffering is an established fact.
