No serious attempt to look Into the future
has been made for a Ion; tlmo by Intelligent
people, and the old customs have become a
fro'lcijnio trying of 'charms,' especially on
nnu tilirht of the jcar. It Iscuiimis enough
that the nlgbt selected Is the eve of the fes
tival of All Saints, which was established in
tho seventh century by a pope of Rome, In
honor of all the saints who had no particu
lar day assigned to them. The Romans
brought Ibis festival to England ; there It
became All Hallows, and the evening before
It, Hallow even or Halloween, and that was
the night sacred to charms and gems. In
tho seventeenth century, England gave up
the night to feasting and frolicking. Nuts
and apples were plenty from one end of tho
Island to the other, ami Nut-crack Night'
was tlio name given to it.
In England, the revels were for fun, such
as diving for apples floating in a tub of wa
ter, and, of course, getting very wet ; nr
trying to snatch in tho teeth an apple on one
end of a stick, which had n lighted candle
at the other eud, and, being hung by a
string, could be spun around very fast, so
that the players often seized the candle in
stead of the fruit ; or a playful fortune tell
ing by naming nuts, roasting them before
the fire, and watching their conduct when
heated whether they burned steadily, or
bounced away, or burst with a noise, each
movement of the charmed nut being of great
One nut test was tried by grinding and
mixing together a walnut, hazel-uut, and
nutmeg, making into pills, with butter and
sugar, and swallowing them on going to
bed. Wonderful dreams would follow (which
was not surprising).
In superstitious Scotland, the night was
given entirely to serious and sometimes
frightful attempts to peer Into the future by
beans of charms. One way of trying fortune
was to throw a ball of blue yarn out oi a
window, and wind it into a ball again from
the other end. .Near the last something
would bold it fast, when the winder must
ask: 'Who holds?' The answer would
name ono who was to have importance in
the questioner a future.
Another Scotch custom was 'pulling kale
stalks.' A young person went blindfolded
Into the garden, pulled up the first kale or
cabbage stalk he touched, and carried it in
to the house. The wbole future was read
from that stalk ; the size indicated the stat
ure of the future partner in life : the quan
tlty of earth at the roots showed the amount
of his, or her, fortune ; the taste of the pith
told what the temper would be ; and when
the stalk was placed over the door, the first
name of the person entering was the fated
The island of Lewes, on the coast of Scot
land, had some curious customs. Young
women made a 'dumb cake,' and baked it
before tho fire with certain ceremonies and
in perfect silence, expecting to see wonders;
and the people also sacrificed to a sea god
called Shoui., 'hrowing a cup of ale into the
sea, and railing on him to give them plenty
of sea-weed to enrich their grounds.
Iu another Scotch trial, a girl would go
into a barn, holding a winnowing sieve, and
stand alone, with both doors open, to see
The fashion of trying charms Is now near
ly out-grown among English-speaking peo
ple. It survives in America as a pleasant
frolic for a social gathering. In our own
day, young people 'sow hemp-seed', 'eat ap
ples before the glass,' 'go down the cellar
stairs backward,' holding a candle and a
mirror. They also 'pop chestnuts,' 'launch
walnut-shells' holding tapers, and try the
'three.aaucer test of the future.
In some of our cities, the boys on Hallow
een collect old tea-kettles, boots, large stones,
etc., and deposit them in clean vestibules,
ringing the door-bell and running away.
Thus the 31st of October set apart by a
pope as a religious festival became, in su.
perstitious times, 'The Witches' Night;'
crossed the ocean as a season for frolics, and
ends with a street -boy's joke.

HOW ARB TUB MIOUTY FALLEN.
To-day there is a man going about tbe
streets of this city, ragged, dirty and pen
nileu, subsisting on free lunches and the
charities of gamblers, and has not slept in a
bed for months, who, during tbe war was
one of the most dashing cavalry officers in
tbe Union army and was promoted from tbe
rank af first lieutenant to full Brigadier and
Brevet Major General for brilliant exploits
on the field of battle, and who for a long
time bad a largo and important command
He has been here for two or three months.
under an assumed name, being ashamed to
dim tbe brilliancy of bis record in the ser
vice of his country by an exhibition of bis
degradation under his former honored name.
He Is generally very reticent, having very
little to do with any one or talking but little.
save, when 'engineering' for- a drink, at
which be h remarkably successful.
Night before last, while lying helplessly
drunk in the rear part of a Third street sa
loon, some men thought to play a joke on
him by stealing his shirt, and proceeded to
strip him. Underneath his shirt 'and sus
pended by a string around bis neck, was a
small canvas bag, which the men opeued
and found to contain his commission as Bre
vet Major General, one from Grant and one
from President Lincoln, a photograph of a
little girt and a curl of hair a 'chestnut
shadow' that doubtless one day crept over
tbe brow of some beloved one.
When these things were discovered, even
tbe half-drunken men felt a respect for the
man former greatness, and pity for bis fal
len condition, and quietly returned the bag
and contents to where tbey found them, and
replaced tbe sleepers clolhea upon him.
Yesterday a Kcwt reporter tried to interview
this man and eudeavor to learn something
of his life In the past few years, Ibut he de
clined to communicate anything. He cried
like a child wheu told how bis right name
and formpr position were ascertalued, and
with tears trickling down bis cheeks, said.
'For heaven's sake don't publish ny deirra-
datton,my name at least, If you are determin
ed to say anything about it. It is enough
to know myself how low t havo fallen. It
will do you nn g.iod and will do my friends
a great harm. Rather let them think I have
died, In South America, where I went at the
close of the war.'
'Strong drink and the gambling table,'
ho said, was the cause of his downfall. Aan-

DltVINd AND CANNING AITLKS.
Wo always dry our apples In the oven of
the conking stove as quickly a is possible
to do without cooking them and when they
are sufficiently dry put them Into their pa
per bags, tie them up securely so that no in
sects ran gain access to them,and hang them
up lor a white lit tho kitchen before they are
put away In the store room. Fruit dried in
this way is never wormy, as the insect moths
never get a chance to deposit Ihelr eggs.
When apples are likely to be scarce in late
winter and spring, and especially when ap
ples are keeping poorly, we fill our cans,
that have been emptied since the canning
season doted, with apples ; If tbey are
sweet, we put a handful of ralslus to a can
to flavor them. Our pet way of putting up
sweet apples is to paie and then core them
Ith an apple-corer, leaving them whole,
slick two or three cloves Into each one, and
cx)k them till soft In a syrup made in the
proportion of a pint of sharp vinegar to a
quart of sugar. We prefer to keep them in
air tight cans.
Fooling the Ilritlsh Farmer.
The case must be desperate when the
British Fremler finds it necessary to mis
state and contort facts for the sole purpose
of deluding British farmers. It is hardly
conceivable that Lord Ueaconsfield can be
lieve that our Western farmers are desert
ing our own fertile lands to build up the
Ilritlsh North American wilderness. It is
equally bard to believe that so well-Inform
ed a man does not know that the tide is run
ning the other way. Canadian farmers are
encouraged to come to this country,and tbey
are coming. If Lord Ueaconsfield is found
ing any considerable part of his policy on
tho hope that "Canada will outstrip tb
United States,"there is going to be an awful
miscarriage of plans. With a fair show,
freedom from old world broils and plenty of
hard work Canada will go ahead, but in the
meantime we shall not stand still, and Lord
Biconsfield's prophecy will be as far as ever
from fulfillment. What a future British
Premier will see Is tho wiping out of the
boundary line and the peaceful absorption
of Canada iuto the United States if Canada
will ask it, and we shall be too neighborly
to decline a request so politely put.
It is difficult to see what good end is to
be served by official efforts to mislead the
British people. They read and they must
know sooner or later, that the government
has been trifling with them. False promise
is being held out to the disheartened and
discontented farmers just as, in the early
days of the commercial depression, mill
bands were told that tbe American manu.
faciurers would break down as competors
and once more give up the field to British
looms and forges. That dishonest illusion
haa been dispelled and the latest cheat will
go along with it. The truth must be faced
that Great Britain can no longer make the
wares she needs nor raise tho food she eats.
HOW ADAMS HANDLED A MUSKET.
In 1777, John Adams was appointed com
missioner to France, to take the place of
Silas Dearie, and embarked on board tbe
Boston frigate. Iu the course of the voyage,
the commander of the Boston saw a sail,
which carried the flag of the enemy, and
tbe temptation to engage with her was so
strong, that, although contrary to his orders
which were limited to carrying Mr. Adams
to France, he determined if possible, to cap
ture ber. Having obtained the permission
of the commissioner, be made sail in chase ;
and when coming up with tbe enemy, be
represented the danger of remaining on
deck : the courses were clewed up.a'll hands
beat to quarters, bulkheads down, decks
sanded matches lit, and tbe fight begun.
In the midst of it, the captain saw, to bis
surprise, that Mr. Adams had escaped his
confinement below, and, with musket in
hand, was doing the duty of a marine with
great dexterity and composure. He im
mediately went to bim and said, 'My duty,
sir, is to carry you unhurt to France, and
as you are unwilling to go under hatchets of
your own accord, it is my duty to put you
there;' and seizing tbe future President of
the Republic in bis arms, he had him con
veyed to a place of safety, and took measur-
ea to keep him there, which were effectual.
A Wise Deacon.
'Deacon Wilder, want you to tell me
how you kept yourself and family well tbe
past season, when all the rest of us have been
sick so much, and have bad the doctors vis
iting us so often.'
'Bra. Taylor, the answer is very easy, I
used Hop Bitters in time ; kept my family
well and saved the doctor bills. Three dol
lars' worth of it kept us well and able to
work all the time. I'll warrant it has cost
you and tbe neighbors over two hundred dol
lars apiece to keep sick tbe same time.'
'Deacon, I'll use your medicine hereaf
ter.' Certain it is that as nothing can better do
it, so there is nothing greater, for which God
made our tongues, uext to reciting His
praises, than to minister comfort for a weary

130 000,000 of United States bonds, and

A rise in tbe price of breadstuff is antici
pated in England, and there is great destitu

"Don't know half their Value."
'Tbey cured me of Ague, Biliousness and
Kidney Complaints, as recommended, I.
had a half bottle left which I used for my
two little girls, who tbe doctors and neigh
bora said could not be cuied. I would have
lost both of tbem one ulght If I had not giv
en them Hop Bitters. Tbey did them so
much good I continued their use until tbey
were cured. That is why I say you do not
know half tbe value of Hop Bitters, and do
not recommend them high enough.' B.,
