Tho discoverer and compounder ot tho far-famed
Compound Syrup of Wild Chorry
and other vnluablo preparations, entered upon his
professional career with the Important ntlvantngo of
a regular medical education In ono ot tho oldest and

forms, ns well ns for ascertaining tho best methods
ot the! treatment. In otlerlng, therefore, to tho peo

and In all countries w hero It Is known has been Just

but Its great power tocuru some of tho worst nntl
most distressing diseases among us was never fully
ascertained until tho experiments ot that skllfull
physician, Dr. swavue, had demonstrated Us high
adaptation. In combination with Pine Tree Tar, and
other equally valuable vegetable Ingredients, whh.li
chemically combined renders It action tenfold more

If I should tako another dish t

Ho took his stew, ho took his two,
And then ho heaves a sigh, O,
And murmured In tho waiter's car,
"Another dish I'll trio."

The jeweler, who was nearly ruined by
this robbery, removed to another quarter of
Paris, nnd established himself under n new
name. One day n messenger called on htm
from M, T , a gentleman holding an
official situation, who was very ill, nnd
wished to purchase somo rings. Tho poor
jeweler had naturally become suspicious over
sinco his fatal ndventuro with Gargarin ; and
instead of sending his shopman, he took tho
rings himself. Ho was shown Into a bed
chamber which was partially lighted j owing
to tho situation of tho windows, tho room
was all In shade, except whero tho bed stood.
What was tho surprise of tho jowelcr when
ho discovered, in the invalid M. T , tho
swindler who had somo years previously do
frnuded him in tho assumed character of tho
Russian Piinco Gargarin I For a few mo
ments ho was struck dumb witii amazement.
Hojvover, ho recovered himself, and deem
ingtit prudent not to betray tho discovery ho
had made, ho displayed his ringi ; several
were solcctcd, and their prico amounted to
about six thousand francs. '
'!It is a largo sum bf money for a poor,
ruined man," said Jl, T , "I have not
ready cash enough to settle tho wholo amount
nnd I shall feel obliged if you will tako in
payment this curious old snuff-box, which is
of great value."
Ho asked for his dressing-case,and opening
it, took out an octagon-shaped snuff-box,
ornamented with ten miniatures by Clinch-
steil, set in gold and rubies. It was perfect
ly uniquo and of inestimable value. Tho
snuff-box which 51. T presented to him
was ono which had been stolen from him a
few days before tho robbery of his diamonds.
Tho box was too remarkable to admit of the
possibility of mistake. liesides, it had a
secret spring, bv means of which all the
miniatures could be taken out of their set
tings ; and ou tho reverses wero painted
similar subjects, but treated in tho stylo of
indelicacy peculiar to the age of Louis XV.
This circumstance was Important in proof of
his claim to the possession of the box. When
Jl. T asked him to set a value on it he
said without hesitation :
"I consider it worth moro than fifty thou
"Fifty thousand francs I" exclaemed Jl.
T ; "I thought it valuable, but this far
exceeds my estimation of it."
"Sir" resumed the jeweler. "I will not re
tract what I havo said. I am an expert deal
er, nnd to mo it may possibly bo worth fur
moro than tlio sum I have fixed. I will make
this proposition lo you ; you shall tako tho
rings you havo selected, and you Bhall put
tho box under an envelope stating it to bo
my property ; and, if It does not bring moro
than fifty thousand francs, you shall havo
my rings for nothing."
31. T was completely blinded by this
deep-laid scheme. Ho was a good connois
seur of objects of virtu, and ho was not a
little gratified to find his box so much over
valued, and to obtain tho rings without
opening his purse. The most exaggerated
valuation of tho snuff-box would scarcely
havo exceeded seven or eight thousand
francs. He sent for two of his neighbors,
ono of whom was a notary, and tho matter
was arranged conformably with the jeweler's
proposition. This being done, the invalid
"Who will fix the piice of the box?"
"You, sir,"coolly replied tho jeweler.
"Me? You are jesting 1"
"I assure you, sir, I am quito berious. I
would willingly lay a good wager that you
will value tho box nt five hundred thousand
Jl. T directed nt the two witnesses a
look which seemed to say tho man is mad ;
but the jeweler added :
"You will value it at that price, I am
certain you will. Hut first of all, I havo to
acquaint you witii a circumstance connected
with this box, which will enable you to per
ccivo its real value."
Jl. T , full of curiosity nnd anxiety,
consented lu hear the jeweler s cuintnunica
lion iu private. The two neighbors, taking
the box with them,ailj()urned to tho drawing
room ; and M. T and the jeweler being
left alone, tho latter said :
"Sir, it is now about sixteen years ago
sinco that snutl'-box was stolen from me; and
a short time lifter, you robbed mo of fifty
thousand crowns' worth of diamonds, under
the usstiineil name of Piinco Gargarin. I
have iiuvv discovered you. My evidence re
lative to the rubbery is on record. You have
declared thesnull-box to be yours, anil I can
prove having purchased it at a public sale.

of my assertion beyti.ul a doubt. Now, sir,
tell mo whether you are inclined to ilel'ciiiL

Ibithivith to imtitulo against you."

a thunderbolt mi the ears of Jl. T .

guilt, his Imagination pictured nil Ihu hoi

joweler tu open a drawer, in which" ho would

day. This being done, tho jeweler called in
"Gentlemen," said ho, "I havo at length
convinced 51. T of tho real valuaoftho
snutr-box. You hco tho prico at which he
has purchased it back from mo."
"I have given iivo hundred thousand
francs," said M. T .
"Hero is your box," said tho jeweler, re
storing it, "and I will let you havo the rings
into tlio bargain,
Tlio notary, who was no less amazed than
tho other witness, said t
"There is somo mystery In all thli."
"Probably thero is," replied tho jeweicr ;
'Jl, T may explain it if he pleases j for
my part I promiso him eternal secrecy,"
With theso words ho took his departure,
leaving the witnesses bewildered in a maze
of conjectures. 51, T ,tliough Immensely
rich, (ho was said to possess upward of
three millions,) never recovered from the
mortification attendant on this unexpected
discovery. Tho jeweler faithfully adhered
to his promiso of secrecy ; but the subtle

In America, lovo)"prccedcs nntl"pteparcs
tho way for mnrrlago at least this Is our
theory of courtship. In tho East, marriage
precedes and prepares for lovo at least this
is tho Oriental theory of tho wedded state.
It quito nccords, therefore, with tho'Kastcrn
idcasjof tho marriago relationthat women
enter into it at an ago which to us seems
very unfit ; and thin practice of early mar
riages Is also favored by thejfact that women
reach their mnturity nt n muchcarlier ago
than with us. They aro at the height of
their bloom and beauty "ntfiftcen'or slxtccu.
They aro often married; nt'thlrteenjor four
teen, and sometimes as early as eight or
nine ; nndJDr, Van Lenncp mentions one
instance of n weddinp; which ho attended in
which the bride was so young that she was
carried about iu tho arms of her relatives.
Naturally courtship is dono by proxy, and
tho young men aro cheated out of what the
American regards as ono of tho most sacred,
inalienable rights. Tho duty 'of looking up
for tho young man n suitable wife, which
oven in our own society tho mothers, aunts,
or sisters often nssume, is in the Fast, by
universal consent, devolvedupou them.
Womanly nature is cssentiallyltho.samo
tho world; over, andwo may safely assumo
that they arc nothing loth to perform the
dutywhich social ciistom'iutrusts to them,
For this purposo they sally forth in a body
on their tour of inspection, call at any house,
which afibrds reasonable hopo of containing
a suitable inmate, aro invariably greeted
with tho utmost courtesy, and ushered at
once into tho reception room ; tho young
lady is summoned, nnd presently enters
bearing sweetmeats and water ;"she is ar
rayed in all the finery and jewels which be
long to her dowry ; nor is it considered a
breach of social propriety to inquire with
particularity respecting her marriage por
tion. This frankness prevents some of the
awkward discoveries which sometimes occur
with us after marriage to mar thejhnppincss
of tho honey-moon. If tho preliminary ne
gotiations are satisfactory, a bargain Is made
between the parents, in which the amount
paid by the husband, or on his behalf, cither
to tho bride or to lier parents, is definitely
agreed upon. This, which under the 5Iosa
io law was fixed at a uniform rate at fifty
shekels or twenty-five dollars varies with
the modern Jews witii tho condition of tho
bride's family, while among some of tho
Circassian tribes and the Tartars, as among
the African savages, tho daughter, when she
reaches a marriageable age, is sold to the
highest bidder. The parties aro always
considered as affianced as soon ns tho mar
riage contract has been ngrecdjto, but the
nuptial ceremony is sometimes deferred for a
considerable period, during which time the
brido and groom nro not permitted to see
cachjotber; their solejinterconrse with each
other is through the intervention of a "friend
of tlie'.bridegroom." Thojjwedding dresses
even more a matter of importance with the
Eastern brido than with us.3$Tho prepara
tion of her toilet in the presence of feraalo
friends, often occupies a larger part of two
days. Tho wedding veil, the bridal crown,
the dodos, or cap, are'some of tho emblems
dodned for tho bridal ceremony. The cos
tumes nro often rich nnd gorgeous beyond
expression. Fashionas interpreted by nn
Oriental milliner, quoted by Dr. Van hen
nep, prescribes the characteristics of an ideal
wedding dress. It should measure six yards
from the shoulders to tho end of tho train;
the long sleeves should sweep the floor;
the material is silk ; it is elaborately em
broidered by a party of professional embroi
deers under the direction of a chief. Tho
sum paid for superintending the needle work
on a single robe referred to by Dr. Van
Lcniiep was five hundred dollars, whilo tho
charge for the work done by the subordi
nates was two thousand five hundred dol
lars, and the entire cost of the dress was ten
thousand ; nor must it bo forgotten that la
bor in that country is very much less expen
sive than in this.
Tho marriago festivities last often for a
week, ami in many sections of the P.ast tho
old practices are still maintained. The
bridegroom with a procession, starts with
music and torches, by night, for the house of
tho bride, where, after a show of resistance,
nnd sometimes quite a struggle, she is taken
possession of and homo away to her future
home. This resistance by the coy maiden
to tho approach of her husband is curiously
illustrative of the marriage customs of many
countries, and iu various 1'tirnn from that
of African society, iu which the brideeroom

her away bodily, tu that of the XestntiatK,

A Materialized Hole.
Tako a sheet of stiff writing paper and

through it, focusing the eye on any conve
nient object; keep tho left eye open, now
place tho left hand, held palm upward,
edgeways against' tho sido of tho paper
lube, and about an inch or two abovo its
lower end. The astonishing effect will be
produced of a hole, apparently of the size
of tho cross section of tho tube, .made
through the left hand. This is the hole in
which wo propose to materializoanother and
smaller hole. As wo need a genuine aper
ture, nnd it would be inconvenient to make
one in the left hand, let a sheet of white pa

the tube appears, mako nn opening 1 inch

difference of illumination, will be seen float

transparent, The illusion, for of course it
is one of those odd pranks our binoculary
vision plays upon us, is certainly one of the
most curious ever devised. Besides, hero is
the actual hole clearly visible, and yet there
is no solid body to be seen to define its
edges. It is not a mere spot of light, be
cause if a page of print he regarded, the

Necessity of Sunlight.
Instead of excluding the sunlight from
our houses, says tho Manufacturer and BuilcU
er, lest it fade carpet, draw file nd
bring fcrckels, we should open every door
and vdndow and bid It enter. It-brings lift
and health and joy ; thero is healing in it
beams ; it drives away discaso nnd damp
ness, mould, megrims. Instead of doing
this, however, many careful housewives close
the blinds, draw down the shades, lock th
door, shut out the glorifying rays and re
joice In the dim and musty coolness and twi
light of their unhealthy apartment. It U
pleasant and not unwholcsomo, during the
glare Of the noontide, to subdue the light
nnd exclude the nlr quivering with heat, but
In the morning nnd In tho evening wo may
freely indulge in the sun bath, and let it
flood all our rooms, nnd if at its very fierce-
est and brightest It has full entrance to onr
sleeping rooms, so much tho better for us.
Wiro netting In doors nnd windows exclude
not files nnd mosquitoes only, but all other
insects, and those who have once used it will
continue to do so. With this as a protection
from intrusive winged creatures one may al
most dispense with shades and shutters and
enjoy all the benofits of nn open house with
out any nnnoynnces so frequent in warm
weather. But better the aunoynnces with
sunshine than freedom without it. Statistic
of epidemics have shown that If they rage
in auy part of a city they will prevail in
houses which aro exposed to tho least sun
shine, whilo those most exposed to it will
not be at all or very slightly affscted. Even
in the somo hoine persons occupying rooms
exposed to sunlight willbehealtheir and re
pulse cpidemlcaljinfluences better than those
occupying rooms where no sunlight enters.
' His Mule.
"Sneaking about mules," remarked a six
footer from Harnettl-county, as he cracked
his whip at the market yesterday morning,
'I've got a mule at home which knows aa
uch as I do, and I want to hear somebody
say that I am half fool."
No oue said so, ami he went on:
"I'vo stood around here and heard men
blow about kicking mules till I've got dis
gusted. When you coruo down to kicking, I
want to bet on my mule. A preacher came
along and took dinner with me the other
day, and as he seemed n little downhearted,
I took him out to see Thomas Jefferson, my
champion mule. I was telling the good man
how that inula would flop his hind feet
around, and he said he'd like to see a littlo
fun. He'd passed his wholo llfo in the
South, but had never seen a mulo lay his
soul into a big time at kicking.
"Well," he continued, after borrowing
some tobicco. "I took Thomas out of tho
stablo, backed him up agin a hill, gin him
a cufl'ou the ear, and we stood back to see
the amusement. It was a good place to
kick his damdest, and what d'ye 'spose he
did ? In ten minutes by tho watch ho was

About jl Stolen Pie. A Charlemont
marketmau, says tho Springfield (7iiio,when
delivering goods one morning, discovered, on
leaving the house ef a customer, a custard
pio sitting In a window, where the lady of
the house had placed it to cool for dinner.
He at once appropriated It, and, driving
directly to tho store of the lady's husband,
called him out uud told him ho had "hook
ed" a nice" custard pie, and if he would get
some cheese they would havo a nice time
eating it. Of course the cheeeo was forth
coming, and, after satisfactorily disposing of
the pie, the question arose what to do with
the plate. The merchant said he would take
care of that, and, suiting his action to his
words dashed it against the wall. W hen the
merchant went homo to dinner that day, bis
wife apologized for not having any dessert,
saying she made a custard pio fordinner.and
set it in the window to cool,and she supposed,
some boys must have stolen it. Her husband
wasn't pie hungry, and seemed quite pleased
about something, but kept "mum." Next
morning; tho merchant, meeting the market
man, sung out: "I'iel" In reply, the
other said : "Cheese 1 And whose plate
