"Gentlemen : I am glad to write you my opinion of 'Ivory Soap,' and have long intended doing so. It has become a household necessity with us. If there is an unusually obstinate spot on the clothing, on the wood work, an ink daub on my desk cover; a polish required for the door plate or surgical instruments, a cleansing and harmless preparation for the teeth, -and a very superior toilet soap needed, we resort to 'Ivory.' We buy it by the box, remove the wrappers, and allow the soap to thoroughly ripen. Now, if I had saved fifteen wrappers I would ask you to send my little girl a drawing book in accordance with your offer in the Youth's Companion; but as it is, we all feel under obligation to you for manu facturing 'Ivory Soap' for us. We do not hesitate to recommend it unqualifiedly to all our friends. It is one of the few articles that will do what it is advertised to do." A WORD OF WARNING. There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory')'' they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of the genuine.

STD AST BTABOUER'B LESSON. ALL ABOUT AN KI.OPEMENT WHICH 8TAHTI.ED LONDON SOCIETY. Thirty lycars ago Mr, Stunrt Starch cr had been a notorious young rnnn about town; ho'.ailcctl'd to bo a notori ous young man about town still. Sinoo ho began to sow his wild oats threo generations of youths had come, sown theirs, and gone; but ho continu ed gaily scattering crop nftcr crop, and imagining all tho whilo that tho world regarded him still ns tho satLO young fellow ho was of yore. When ho roso in tho morning and looked in his glass ho could not but sco that his faco was wrinkled anil his hair was thin. When ho took his afternoon stroll in tho nark ho felt only too plainly that his step lackod lightness and his iigure drooped. Thcso and such like un pleasant "finger-posts'1 he contrived to conceal, ns he thought, it not from hitnrclf, at least from tho world. His toilot, it is true, made an immeiiBO de mand upon the skill of his valet and the resources of art; but when it was completed he Haltered himself that he was to nil o m ward appearanoa as youthful as many men thirty years his junior. Having thus in exterior renewed his youth, it was his delight to spend his afternoons and nights with "tho boys.'' Thcro was something pathetic in tho efforts whioh ho made to do as theso sturdy young roystercrs did. Ho would stroll with them in the streets, gamble with them at tho club, ehuillo off to tho theatre "to mash" with them the ladies of the stage, until ho was ready to drop with fatigue. All tho time be imagined that tbe lads took him for one of themselves. Ho forgot that there were few of them who had ot heard their fathers talk of "old Starch," tell of his elopement some twenty years ago with poor wealthy Miss Cash, wonder what had become of tho child of that marriage, and laugh at thd old fogoy's affetoation of voulh. Thcro was just one point upon which Mr. Stuart Starchcr acknowledg ed the effect of year's, and that was on the point ol worldly wisdom, lie not merely admitted, but he boasted of, tho width ot his experience and tno pro fundity of his knowledge of men, wo men and thing. Every possible trouble or difficulty a man about town could get into ho had been in. Ho had been in lovo and in debt, hard bit at cards and threatened with tho di vorce court; he had eloped with an heiress, been in scrapes with ladies and had fought a duel. Every conceiv able adventuro he had, according to himself, come through, and come through, as ho proudly declared, with out as much as a scratch. He was as vain of his astuteness as ho was ash amed nf his age. On this great tund ot wiidom and experience he was always ready to draw tor the beucnt ot ms young I rienus wnen anv of them cot into trouble; it was tho only fund ho was ready to draw unon. Ho was at least as rich as he was wieo, but be was as prudent witn his money as he was prodigal with his advice. As ho used . lo say, ho did this on principle; ho stuck to his mon oy because if he did not somebody elso would, but as to Ins advico bo could offer it fieely because ho know do body would take it. In this observation ho scarcely did himself justice, for his advice was not only taken but often sought, and among those who most needed and souuht it was one of his youngost and most intimato friends, tho Hon. Frank Terrington. Tho lion. J? ranK was a true leinng ton; that is ho was moat ol his time in high spirits and low company and ho was happily blessod with many friends, many lollies and many debts. He was not on good terms with his father; no Terrington ever was. The lion. PrauK was the lavonte nephew of a very wealthy old aunt. That was all ho had to live on ypt for a long time, but with tho Vid o! usur ers, he contrived to ltvo on it very well. But one tine morning what ehouht the wealthy old aunt do but go and get mnrried 1 Mho hist lutima lion of this horriblo example of feinl nino thounhtlessncBi which poor Frank had was tho announcement of her wedding in the morning papers. He i ad the shameful intellieer.ee with a throbbing brow. His aunt had cal loulv taken from him his only liveli hood, for now his credit, like Othello's occupation, was gone. As was ms hauit wnon in trouble no went and consulted Mr. Stuart Starch er. What was to ua uone, mat was his question. Done!" excliiiued Mr. Stuart Star cr, Willi his youtiiiui manner, out shaky voice. "Done!'' Why, my boy my poor uoy, you must marry This alternative, this resource is : fearful ono to fall back upon. When a fellow's b to lie broke there's nothing else for it! ' 'But who would havo met" aeked Frank. "Beforo my aunt married I might havo had a chance of marrying a fortune I had prospects then; but now, whin 1'vo nothing but a bad re nutation and big debts "Uonfound thp reputation," said Mr. Stuart Starchcr, in a most decisive manner, "and blow tho debu! peak deliberately, and not, as you may nuagiue, irom the turn ot my periods, wttuout consideration Frank, mv boy, I weep for you, thought you wcro a lad of spirit and resource, but I w.is wrong very wrong.' "Oh, cut this chaff, man, and bo serious," replied Frank, a littlo nettled j Mr. htuirt btarchora buuoonery over his dwro. "i m ready to mar vv money if I can get thn chance, But how am I to get it t Everybody worth anything in town knows me, nnd will havo nothing to do with me, llow am 1 to marry mouey n monoy won't marry mo!'1 "But it will, Frank," said Mr, Stuart Starchor. "Mark me, it will, if you only follow my advico. I know what I'm talking about, I can tell you Now listen. 1 never meant you try the gamo on in town; as you say, you and your jw.ltion aro too wpII known to permit you to jarry on oper ftUoris successfully. But towns not oveiywhoro; whim you know a llttl more you n Know mat. Thero aro other places where you and your posi tlon aro not uuowu, and where money any amount of monoy is to bo Sicked up. Did you over hear of outhport, Scarborough, Brighton? Why not go to ono of theso places, take up our abode in tho best hotel and lot it bo known that you aro tho Earl of Uoughshod's son; thon Bearoh out tho richest merchant's or manu facturer's daughter, b ceo mo acquaint- with her thcro aro scores of ways f doing that, subscription balls, tables bote, and such like; make up to her, and if the old people object to your suit run nway with herl It's tho easi est thing in tho world, I assure you, to man ot somo birth, appearance and cutencss. I did it mysolf years ago. was quite a boy then, and I hadn t io benefit of good advico liko you, but then, you bco, I always know my way about. Nobody over outwitted Cbnrlio Stuart Starchcr, I can tell you." "I never looked at tho matter in this light," said Frank, in a reflective way. "woll, now that lvo given you tno idea," replied his guido, philosophor, and friend, "do look at it. I'll givo ou any littlo tips I can, and mind 1 can give you every tip worth know- ng. If vou want to humbug tho old people, or to carry off tho girl, just lot mo know, nnd I'll put you on tho proper track." "By George," exclaimed Frank, "it would bo worth trying, if only for tho fun of the thing. But it would cost monoy, and 1 m doviiish hard up just now, and there's no uso going to tho money lenders." Tho old dandy heard tnis witn a leer; ho had no intention of lending rank anything but the uso ot his wits. "Oh, it won't cost much, ray boy,' ho answered. "You havo plenty of welrv. Yon can raise enough on a third of it to do tho whole business if you got to work nt once." Dor somo lirao Mr. atuart otarcnor heard or saw no more of tho Hon. ank. What had becorao of him tho superannuated fribble did not know, and again ho did not oaro. Ho was too much used to seeing ins menus "go under as ho called it, to bo particu larly moved by tho collapso and disap pearance of ono of them. About six woeKs naa eiapeou, wuun - r c t-. I ono attcruoon our. o. oiaruuur was surprised by tho Hon. Frank walking nto his room. "Hillol is that you!" ho said, rather coldly. "What havo you been up to this long time! uad, l nad nearly forgotten vou." "Ob." replied Frank, "I bavo been oarrying out your advico." "Indeed!" said Mr. atarcntr, Deoora- ing interested. "And how have you succeeded! "Splendidly," replied I rank. "Eht You don't moan it!" cried Mr. Starchcr, springing. to his feet and Iasping Franks band warraiy. -uy Jove, I congratulate you, my boy. U she a big-catch a regular sea Bor- lonl? Eh! Who is she, my boy! and is everything settled!'' "Mot so tast, starcn, said rranic, laughing, "not so fast. To answer shortly, eho is a big catch and every thing is settled at least, so far as she and I aro concerned. What tho papa will say is a different matter, but we don t intend to consult mm. "Oh, it's a runaway business is it' "Yes; I'm afraid it must be." "Why, this is delightful!" cried tho old man, enthusiastically, "xou can command me, my boy, don't forget that, don't forget that. But; coino, tell us all about it. Who is she! Whore did you fall in with her!" "At Brighton. I went there and did as you adyised me. And, at one ol the Pavillion balls I fell in with her not only fell in with her, but fell in love with her. "I know," said Mr. Starcher, with a wink, "in love with her pile, "No, seriously and truly with her self." answered Prank earnestly. Sho is a charming gin. uarnvng enough to turn any fellow s head if Bho hadn't a farthing." "But she has several, ehl' said Mr. Stuart Starcher. with another wink aud a alv leer. "Oh, yes, she s neir to an ner iatner has. and bosules she is entitled on coining of ago to a considerable for- tuno umior her mothers win. "That's tho sort of thing, my boy. that's tho sort of thing. You ought to let mo go halves with you for giving you such good advice, 'pon my" word vou ought. That shows you, ray lad, that whon you want a wrinklo you can not do better than como to old Starch: he's as 'cute as thoy make them. But what is she! A raanu faoturor's daughter!" "No," replied P rank, witn a sngniiy troubled look, "that's just tho difltcul ty. Tho fao is, she's tho only child of a man whom I know pietty well, nnd from whom I have reoeivod many kindnesses," "Woll! And what s tho diflicuity there!'' asked Mr. Stuart Starchor, as Burning a puzzled look. "Wei'., you soe, it seoms to mo that to run nway with a friend's daughter is lather a shabby return lor ms Kind ness to you. In fact, it seems hardly honorable "Oh, ho!" cried Mr. Starcher, with a loud laugh, "is that all! Well, you aro a ninny! You don't mean to Bay you let that disturb your mind!'' "I'm afraid I do, answered Frank gloomily. "Well, you're a 1001 ior your pains. "But, under tho circumstances, would you run off with herl" "Of course l would.' The Hon, Frank was silent a mo ment. Then ho saidi "ThoroB another point on which I want to oon Btilt you. She's not yet of age, and I m atrald the father might prosccuto mo for carrying her off. I believo ho oould." "Yes, I supposo ho could and would, too," replied Mr. Starcher, "if ho caught you whilo his blood was up, Bat vou should tako her abroad, and remain out of his rsach for a month or two."

Would 300 bo t-nouchl'' "ou'ro extremely kind," replied Frank, "most kind. Yes, 500 would 1888. bo just about tho thing." "Horo's a check, thon," said Mr. Sttrohor, at onco filling ono up for tho amount "And now, ns nn oid friend, may I know tho lady's name!" Frank shook his head. "Sorry," ho said, "very sorry, but I really can't tell you. I promised her I would toll no one." "Who can sho be!" wondered Mr. Stnart Starcher. "You needn't trouble your mind, for you would nover guess, said Frank. "By tho way, I hope to carry her oft the day after to-morrow." "That's right; lojo no time," said tho old beau; "and bo uro you telegraph and let mo know tho inomont tho raar riage is over." From that moment Mr. Stuart Starchor was in a stato of high excite ment. Thcro was to bo a great scan dal in tho fashionablo world, and bo was wild to havo his name mixed up with it. Ho was eager to bo tho first to communicate the intelligence of it to "tho boys." Fearful of being anti cipated in this, that very evening ho cast out to them dark hints about Frank which perplexed aud interested them. Tho next day ho mado his hints a littlo plainer nnd when on tho morning of tho third day, Frank's tolcgram reached him, ho took it about among his friends nnd exulted in their amazement. Ho had to pro tend that ho knew who tho lady was, but that, for occult reasons, he daren't tell them; but ho did not fail to dwell on tho fact that Frank throughout had oonsulted him, and that it was by tho aid of his money that the elopement was effected. Tho next day juBt as Mr. Starcher, after his claborato toilet and sointy breakfast, was preparing to go out, who should be shown into his room butFrank'b brother, the Hon. Jack Terrington. "Well," said Jack, after tbo usual salutations, "I hear you know about Frank's last escapade!" "Well, yes I do," said Mr. Stuart Starcher, coniplacontly. "I think I havn done something to help him to n fortune." "Yes, so it would appear," answer ed the Hon. Jack, looking at a letter ho took from his pocket. "Do you know who the lady is!" "Woll, yep," Baid Mr. Starcher, hesi tatingly, "but I promised not to tell." "Just-look, at that," replied Jack tos sing tho old dandya letter in Frank's hand writing." 'Tho wholo town is laughing over you and it." Mr. Stnart Starcher took it and read as follows : Mv Dear Jack: Bv old Starch's advice and assistance I havo run oil with' his daughter. I have letters ot his to prove it. Isn't it a joke? The old rascal was having ner Drougnt up privately at urigmon, when I happened to come across her at a danco at the Pavilion.

Tho matter is said to bavo boen duly authenticated and is now occupying tbo attention of the embassies. Tho statement is that every week largo shipments of German and Italian girls arrive via Verna, Odessa, Salonica and from theJAdriatio ports. Needless to add that this human freight is not disembarked on tho ordi nary cuatomhouuo quays of tho Golden Horn, whero passongera and cargo aro usually put ashore, and where its peos ence would speedily have attracted tho uotico of the consular authorities. Tho girls aro landed in small boats at tho Turkish quarantine Btation at Kawak, whence thoy aro brought overland through Bu jukdero into Constantinople.

In 1880 125,000 tons wero produced from tho land mines and upwards of 05,000 tons of river rock. Last year tho total out put was 433,000 tons, almost equally divided between tbo two varieties. Most of tho river rock is sold in Europe. It is officially stated that notwith standing the comparatively low prico of phosphate rook, during 1887, tho value of this product alone was moro than three times as great as tbo aggre gate value of preoious metals unearth ed in tho entire Bouth in tho eamo period. This remarkable deposit is found in beds on tho South Carolina lowlands running parallel to the Atlantic sea board and from eight to fifty miles dis tant from tho coast. It is also rough ly massed with fossil bonos and teeth in orecks and rivers. The nodules have developed, on analysis, from 55 to 02 per cent, of tricalcio phosphato and from 5 to 11 tier cent, of carbonate of limo, with various minor constitu ents. These phosphates form tbo basis of superior artificial fertilizers largely consumed throughout the TJnitcd'Stntes and in foreign countries. Tho chem ical working reduces the rock to pow der of a most insidious nature. In the manufactories tho men who nro em ployed to p ck this dust into bags aro compelled to wear handkerchiefs bound across their months and nostrils. South Carolina's phosphate mines aro located in Beaufort, Colleton and Berkeloy counties. What is known as tho Coosaw Mining company is tho only rivor dredging phosphato syndi cate that has exclusive rights. There has recently been much talk of "pools" and "trusts" among tho richer compan ies, mainly with a view to protect tho prico of rock. Tho principal operators in Beaufort county, besides the Coosaw syndicate, aro the Oak Point Mining company and the Sea Island Chemical company. Next January tho l'orl Koyal Mining company will begin rock dredging. Tho Cooper and Ashloy river marls are composed of minute shells, aud their gianular texture is frequently so compact that the dark gray mass is suitable for building material. Frag ments broken from the irregular sur faces of these marls, rounded by wave action, have becomo converted into tho nodules that aro so rioh in phosphato of lime. Tho rock which is now extensively mined in South Carolina is always found overlying tho marl. Much darker in color than the land deposit, and palpably harder, tbo water rock is found at a dredging depth of ntteen to twenty leot at the bottom ot creeks and rivers that aro feeders of Port Royal harbor or St. Helena sound Land rock is usually mined at a depth f five to ssven feet from tho earth's surfaco. It varies groatly in size of tho nodules. Found in clay, mud, peat, it is marked wilh tho fossil re mains of mastodons, elephante, deer, horses, cows and hogs : not imbedded in tho rock but mingled with the loose layers. Beautiful specimens of sharks' teeth, from two to four inches long, are not intrequent. Scientists havo been mentally oxer- ciBod to account tor the changing ot a marl which originally oontatned (U per cent, of carbonate of lime and only or ! por cent, of phosphato of lime into ouo wuicu snows oy analysis oa io . . i , i , w . 62 per cent, of phosphate of lime, and from 5 to 11 per cent, of carbonnto of lime. In tho exhaustive and deeply interesting icporls of South Carolina's state board of agriculture, it is mention cd as a notowortbv circumstance that while tho greater part of eocenu marls that region havo preserved their constitution almost unchanged, a very romarkiiblo mutation U observable at tho beginning and end of the series, in tho buhr stone on the northern border, and in tho widely removed phosphato rock on tho southern. In tho buhr stono the original carbonate of limo composing tho shells has boen removed by eilcia, rendering huge masses of rock, that onco might havo imparted valuable properties to the soil, worth leas to th.- agriculturist ; whilo in the ihosphato Delt there lias been n cur ious but vastly beneficial evolution Two theories aro ottered tor ex planation of the ohango from carbon ato of limo to phosphato. Ouo of theso theories assumes that the fragments of marl were charged with sweepings from guano beds formed abovo them by congregated flocks of Bea birds But no remains ot birds havo boen found among tho other fossils discov ered in theso wondorful beds. Tho other theory as to tho formation of these rocks is that certain mollnxks have the power of separating tho phoB phato of limo from ocean water, and that through their instrumentality tho marl (especially us upper strata) bo camo charged with phosphato of limo, i hat tho proportion ot phosphate, thus obtained, to the wholo body of the 8iipoifioial layeis of marl was after wards increased: pirst, by tho re tncval of a considerable quantity of tho enrbonato of limo rendered soluble by the tho percolation through it of rain water containing carbonic acid, do rived from tho decomposing vegetable matter in tho soil overlaying tho tvnr). Seoond, by a well known pronencss of phosphoric acid, when amused, to con centraio mid to jjivo nso to concre tionary processes similiar to thoso btrongly marked in the flint nodules and pebbles of English chalk. This , theory agreoa with tbo diffused occur renco of phosphato of limo In tho sup crficial layers of tho marl, ns well ns with tho fact that tho tipper layers of tho deposits and tho onteido of tho nodules aro richest in phosphate. It substitutes a general causa for a local one, oominei-surato nt oiicq with tho wido area occupied by tho phosphato rocks nnd by the phosplmtlo marls of tho south Atlantic co.-uit line. Ono ton per day of the rook can bo raised by an ordinary laborer. Ho Is paid for this work 81.76. A royalty of $1 for cftoh ton minod is paid into South Carolina's treasury. In 1883 phosphato rook was marketed at $9 nor ton, but of lato years lower prices havo ruled. Working ono and one half hours on tho ebb and tho sanio length of timo on tho flood tide, nt a dopth of ton feet or moro, tho Coosaw divers earn as ranoh ns 318 a week raising river rock. This labor is noitber unhealthy nor perilous. Buying Indiana "floaters." A REPUni.ICAN CHAIRMAN TELLS fcXACTLY HOW IT WAS DONE. From the Indianapolis Sentinel, A correspondent of a Chicago nanor met Sam Ivercheval, of Spencer county, in tho bar room of tho Dennison Houso tbo other night. Korcheval is tho chairman of tho Republican committee, and ho seems to havo bad tho unblush ing impudenco to tell publicly to tho crowd around tho bar how the voters of his county wero debauched nt tho recent election. He is described by the correspondent as reclining with his arms on tho bar and discoursing as fol lows ; "Of courso it was an expensive cam paign the most expensive tho stato has over known. The prico of votes averaged over 820 each, and iu Bomo cases we had to pay as high as $10 and 850; but wo got them, and wo carried tho Btate. In Spencer county wo had a great many 'floaters,' and it was an open question whether wo or tho democrats could buy them. Wo got most of them." "now could you bo sure, ' tho cor respondent asked, "that a vote which you had paid for would bo really de livered !" "Nothing simpler," said tho chair man of the Spencer comity committee. "it you buy dry goods, you got tho package when you givo the money. We went on tho sarao principle. Wo had ono man stationed nt tho polling place who was able to sco the ballot from tho timo it left his hands until tho timo it went into tho box. Now, suppose a floater is secured by a work er. Say vou are a worker and this gentleman is tho voter, and this gentle man hero is tho guard at tho polls. Now, you agree Willi this man to pay him 520 lor a straight republican vote. You steer him up to tho guard at tho polls nnd call his attention to tho man. The guaul gives him a ballot folded and ready to put into tho judgoV band's. Tho voter takes it, and it ho votes as ho haa contracted to do, without look ing at it, or 'monkeying' with it in any way and tho guard can eeo whether ho does or not, for ho is nover more than threo feet away from the ballot box thon ho (tho guard) signals back to you that tho man is all right, and you take him off aud givo him his money, lie has to trust yon that tar, although I have seen cases in 'this election when the 'floater would not trust the worker, but insisted on having ouo hand on the money whilo bo put in tho ballot," "How is tho monoy paid afterwards!" "Well down in our part of tho county we took a room which had been used as a gambling-hell. The door had one of thoso little cpenings to it in tho centro from which you could see out, but you could not soo in. When a worker had got a vote he wrote on a little piece of bho paper tbo amount ot mfiney to which tho voter was en titled, and the voter poked his band through the hole with that bit of card board in it. I ho paper was taken off by a young man inside, examined and verified, and, if it was all right, tho monoy 810, 820 or 850, as tho case might be was placed in the still open hand. The man outsido saw notbiug, neither did the man inside. It us all done quietly and effectually, aud no body was the wiser." aenator voorhees, of Indiana, tells nn Indianapolis Sentinel reporter that ho is confident tho republicans spent 8200,000 to purchaso that state. "In Terre Haute," ho says, "tho minimum prico paid tor votes was SI 5," and ho mentioned one place whero a man re ceived S200 for his influence. Mr. Houston, chairman of tho India na republican committee, is credited wilh tho frank admission to thocorres nondent of tho Chicago Tribune fron.l that it is folly to dony that a majority of voters in Indiana aro democrats." The Portland, Ind., Sim (dera.) de clares that Jay county, which went re publican last week, was "boodlo-izd, aud bo openly that "thcro was no ex cuso for any ouo boing ignorant of what was going on." Tho tlimy pa'h of "boodle," it says, was blazed by tho r . r . u- ii . i i . i- ii.,. - iui ui uiu uuaiei bo piuiuiy vnui -ine way-faring man, thongb a fool, could not err therein,' and tho rustle of green backs floated out from tho treasurer' office as distinctly as tho 'klink' of glasses from a " grog shop. If a voter addicted to drink had too much self-respect to fell his voto while sober, ho was properly dosed with whisky until ho had i-o clouded his intellect ns to voto in tho directiou where his whisky came from." Ihu llanco'jk (Ind.) JJemocrat Dives this illustration of tho way monoy was used in its county : "i he democraoy of tho first precinct of Center township mado a gallant tight on Tuesday last, but they corao out hfty-six votes be bind tho voto of 1SS1, owing to tbo corrupting influonee of money in tho hands at unscrupulous republican lead ers, who went into tho open market and bought fiom eighteen to twenty formerly democratio voters in tho pre cinct at a cost of not less than 8500. furnished by the friends of monopolies. Tho men that sold their votea wear tho mark of Cain on thoir brows, and their names havo been properly entered on tho books of that highly moral party. Ono man was blindfolded and led to tho polls by a petticoat politician. When ho recovers his eye sight nnd manhood l o will be ablo to appreciato tho contempt in which be is held by decent people of all parties." Eolipses for the Yt-ar 1B89.
