At the late meeting of the Buck*
County (Pa.) Agricultural Society,
Thomas SliaUcroaa rend an essay on
"Potato Culture," in which he detailed
Ilia success with various varieties last
year. The Peerless he placed atthe
head out of eight aorta, it yielding near
ly 800 bushels per acre of marketable
tubers. The Clituax stood next, yield
not ao good, quality la tter, and almost
equal to the Early Rose in earlmeaa.
Nit nitor third in yield and profit, but
liable to rot, and large ones often hol
low. Early Hose poor in quality nnd
small, large enough in yield—season
unfavorable. Early Goodrich yielded
well, quality poor. The Prolific* (new)
nlxuit as gixul in qualitv and yield as
the Climax, but inclined to set too thick
ou the vines, and kept green till late.
.Tnekson White, good quality, jxipular,
but yielded poorly." Iliuman did not
do well. Poach blow, though good, can
not compete with the Peerless where
iiroflt is the object ; Peerless will pay
x-tter at 60 cents than Peaehblow at SI.
Cusco, prolific, but poor—generally dis
carded. Four things lie thought neces
sary to first-class crops, via., a light,
loamy soil, plenty of good manure,
(stable manure the main dependence i
fifteen to eighteen tons per acre, good
seed (such as lias not been planted
more than two or three times) and
thorough culture. Put on the manure
whenever yon have it—no matter if
the ground ia froxen or covered with
snow, provided it is not s aidehill.
Land full of vegetable matter is excel
lent for this crop. In following corn it
is a good plan to plough in the fall, and
then begin manuring : weeds will be
less troublesome in this way. Plant
when dry and warm. One or "two eyes
are enough to a piece of seed ; plant in
every other furrow, and ten or twelve
inches apart ; where certain varieties
incline to grow too large, like the Peer
less or Mouitor, plant closer. Cover
about two or three inches ; use the
roller only on dry ground. A substitute
for the roller would be a large door
drawn over the ground, which will level
without packing. Harrow before the
potatoes come up. Hill up just before
the vines fall with a potato plough. Dig
as soon as the vines die ; store in a dark,
cool cellar. Mr. S., thinks potatoes the
most profitable crop of his section. In
1871 he sold 1,855 bushels for s£h£>, the
product of eight acres. The manure
cost per acre, besides hauling.
Feeds his small potatoes, and did not
include them or his seed in the figures
and estimates given above.

Is there any remedy for a cow that
has a chunk in the bag, " at the root of
the teat," so that the milk runs down
very slow.—[S., West Clarksrille, N. Y.
Beply hjf A, B. Arnold, Srrrrtary
American Dairymen'* Association.
The buuch is occasioned by a thick
ening of the valve in the milk tube,
near the junction of the teat and udder.
Such cases are seldom perfectly reme
died. Thev can be improved bv taking
a large steel knitting-needle and flatten
ing a spot an inch or so from one end
and making the edges sharp. Insert a
tube or quill in the teat just large
enongh to admit the flattened spot, and
let the upper end of the tube reach
nearly to the bunch. Pass the needle
through the tube and cut the hard lump
one way going up, turning it to make
a cross cut coming down. The tube re
maining in the teat, pass a small swab
or sponge, wet with iodine, up through
the tube, and brush the wound. This
will deaden the surfaces and tend to
prevent growing together while healing
This will afford temporary relief and
sometimes permanent. Occasionally
the thickening of the valve will contin
ue and spoil the teat in spite of treat
ment. I have seen a statement of sim
ilar treatment, when the cow was dry,
a silver tube remaining in the teat till
healing was well along, that was said to
work well. The plan looks feasible,
but I have never experimented at that
The Potato R|.
Eastern farmers could be much bene
fited by taking note of our experience
with the potato bug. I see now how I
might have made much money by using
the experience of farmers further West,
where the bugs first made their appear
ance, for the price of potatoes has more
than doubled. I find the cost and ap
plying of Paris green is not more than
$j an acre. It is a sure remedy. Are
you skeptical ? Then just put a pint in
the centre of your linen handkerchief,
take hold of the four corners of it and
give it a shake over each hill, then ex
amine four days afterward, and you'll
be convinced by the great slaughter.
Yet there are people here who spend
about 50 days' work on each acre in
picking bugs by hand, and in sweeping
them in a tin pan with a wisp broom.—

If a man wants fine fruit he should
keep a dog under the tree—cut up in
pieces and buried among the roots.
The carcass of even the average car is
declared to contain about one pound of
phosphorus—an important element of
fertility. In view of the curtailed con

to be more shipwrecks on the sen of

Women as Students.
A laily writer in the Boston Traveler
says: On an average my girls at twelve
were as advanced as my boys at fifteen ;
and who shall dare say, if an equal
number of those girls with the boys had
been told at that age, or cnatom had
rendered it common, that they were to
seek professions for life and support
themselves by their intellectual efforts,
that they would have lagged behind
any of those boys ?
It is all nonsense, this talk about
women natarally possessing inferior
mental capacity. Who does not know
that the mind of man grows snd
strengthens by use, and so wonld the
mind of woman, bnt just at the age
when a few boys and young men begin
in earnest to study for a livelihood or
to make themselves famous, young
women are taken from school with their
" education finished," so called! Just
give them an equal ehauce in colleges
of their own, separate from Harvard's
proud sons, and banish sickening novels
and odious fashions from the domains,
teach them that they ought never to
marry for a support, but are self-sus
taining themselves, and if Harvard boys
are not compelled to be " fast" in or
der to win and not to be left lagging
behind in the race for literary honors,
then my woman's prevision is' as false
as the assumption that women desire
knowledge becanse men are learned,
wish to fill their places, or take " all
the privileges of men."
Womeu in Germany.
Mr. C. C. Fulton, editor of the Bal
timore American, in a letterfrom Vien
na, gives some incidents in regard to
the present condition of women in Ger
many. which will surprise many readers.
For instance, he says that next to his
hotel, a building accupying a whole
block is in progress of erection, "on
which not less tlian four hundred per
sons arc employed, fully two hundred
of whom are women.' All the hard
laboring work is done by women, such
as making and carrying mortar in buck
ets ou their heads to the workmen
handling the brick. They are not al
lowed a moment's leisure, several over
seers being on guard to keep them
constantly in motion." He fonnd the
same proportion of women at work on
all the new buildings, and there must
be many thousands of them doing this
species of work in Vienna. They are
both young, middle-aged and old, but
all seem strong and healthy. Mr. Ful
ton further says: At dinner-time they
swarm into the shops to purchase a
piece of brown bread and fat bacon, and
a mug of beer, and eat their dinners
sitting on the curbstones. Their
wages are one florin, or forty-eight cents
per day, and I am assured by a gentle
man resident here that most of them
sleep about the buildings on shavings,
or in barns or sheds, having no homes.

AY OCCASIONAL FRIEND.
Mr. and Mrs. Oliver C. Burton, a*
their wedding cards hod announced the
young couple s rear before, were seated
at the breakfast table, with au undeni
able expression of discomfort upon both
faces. Oliver himself, a fiue lookiug
man of about twenty-four, looked out of
temper. Amy, his prettv blonde wife,
looked harassed anu unhappy, but not
"I wish I could pleaae you. Oily,"
she said, with a piteous droop iu the
corners of her mouth. "1 do try, and
if yon would only give me an hour of
"Au hour of warning," broke in Oli
ver, in a petulant toue; "that's just
like a woman. How ean I tell when I
am going to meet a friend I should like
to iuvite to dinner? Yesterday, for in
stance, I met Ned Heyward qiute unex
pectedly in the ear, and he's only in
town a few days. Of course I asked
him to dinner, and found pork and
" But you like pork and Wans."
" But you should always provide
something else. Ned detests them."
" But if Mr. Hey ward had not come,
the somcthiug else would have been
wasted, as we all like pork and beans."
" I cannot understand why it is I al
ways find some mortifying deficiency
whenever 1 bring any one here to dine.
Last vreek John Hill found nothing but
muttou chops and potatoes. '*
"Itw as washing day. You see Oily,
we really cannot afford to have a com
pany dinner every day, and—"
"There, there ! alwavs the eld story.
We seem to afford other things very
well. I don't mind the cost. I never
stint YOU in housekeeping funds."
" >?o. Oily ; and if you really do not
mind the cost, I might—"
"Manage it any way yon like, but do
let me find a decent meal when I bring
home an occasional friend. There kiss,
and be friends."
Amy was willing euough to pnt up
her pretty lips for a kiss, but after her
lord and master had left the house, she
•arried a perplexed face for a long time.
She did want her husband's homo to be
the most perfect spot on earth in his
own eyes, and faithfully tried to make
it so. But the little wife had been
brought up in a family where a limited
income ruled all expenditure, and she
knew well that her husband's salary re
quired careful management to keep
them out of debt. Debt was her horror,
while Oliver thought but little of a bill
here and there, having, as yet Jiad none
large euough to be an annoyance.
Amv hail proved herself a treasure in
housekeeping- neat, orderly, and eco
nomical—and her husband was justly
proud of his wife and his home. But
his reckless hospitality was a sore thorn
in Amy's side. She was glad to see his
gentlemen friends, when she knew they
were coming to visit her, and took an in
nocent pride in spreading before them
her choicest cooking and daintiest dish
es. But ahe seldom knew they were
coming till Oliver put bis head in her
chamber door, or tne kitchen, to tell her
Tom, Dick or Harry had come borne
with him to dinner, and they were in a
hurry. Aud it did seem to poor Amy as
if an evil fate possessed Oliver to select
the very worst days for such visitations.
The ireal that on a busy day Oliver
would have eaten with a keen relish,
looked poor when he saw his fastidious
friend who boarded at the hotel
partaking of it And yet, as Amy said,
his salary did not warrant a company
dinner for every day.
Then there were washing days, when
something most be oooked that could
be qnickly served ; ironiug days, when,
if they were alone, Oliver declared pork
and beans a dinner fit for a king ; there
were days when yesterday's big joint of
meat most he eaten cold, warmed tip,
or wasted ; days when the range wonld
not bake well, and the dinner in pros
pect had to be abandoned, and a hurried
meal prepared on the top of the fire ; in
short, days that all housekeepers know
by experience are the very last ones
when they want to see strange faces at
their tables. Yet, if Amy was all ready
on six days, and all in confusion on the
seventh, it was surely on that very sev
enth day that Oliver had a friend unex
pectedly to dinner.
It was of no nse to tell him in the
morning ; the sight of an old comrade's
face drove the warning completely ont
of his mind.
80, on the morning whereof I haTe
already written, Amy went about.her
daily duties with a heavy heart and a
troubled face. But the postman left
her a letter, after reading which she
suddenly cleared np wonderfully, and
seemed immensely relieved.
"I'll try it," she said. "Perhaps Oli
ver will realize then what it "cost*."
But no word of her mysterious reso
lution passed her lips when her hus
band came home, nor did he allude to
her letter. There was no stranger at
her table for three or fonr days, but she
waited patiently, knowing Oliver would
soon find a friend for her to make her
first experiment in her new plan. She
was very careful always about the ap
pointments of her table, trusting noth
ing to the servant in that department,
so she was not afried of any guest find
ing disorder or neglect there, but Oli
ver's idea of gnest dishes had been a
sore tronble to her.
" Amy," he called, about a week after
the important conversation recorded,
" Will Ferris has come home with me.
Now don't tell me we have nothing fit
to set before him."
"Can yon give me half an hour?"
Amy asked cheerfully.
" Yes—not more. We are going to
the lodge together."
" I'll be ready."
Oliver beamed with satisfaction, as
he motioned his guest to a seat at the
table. A small turkey, browned to per
fection, was the leading dish, various
vegetables, a dainty selection of sauces
and pickles, and a most delightful pie
finished the repast.
" I knew Amv could do it if she
tried," thought Oliver, "and now that
she finds I am in earnest, she will man
age to give my friends a decent meal,
if they are not heralded twenty-four
hours in advance."
Not a week later, another friend was
invited on the spur of the moment, ar
riving when the dinner was actually
served. Bnt Amy asked for only a few
minutes, and magically there was served
an exquisite repast, 'perfectly cooked.
Again and again Oliver came home with
a friend, and a delightful certainty of n
good dinner. Amy never complained
now of his hospitality, gave his friends
a smiling welcome, and Oliver found
home more charming than ever.
Two months passed, and the occasion
al friend came very often to dinner.
The slight restraint Oliver had felt was
quite removed by the new and delight
ful change in Amy's management; and
yet the variety and quality of the com-
P*HT never failed. But Mr*.
Baron, consulting br account Ixwk,
nnderaUxxl that tn© time w** rapidly
approaching when Oliver must under
stand how thi* magic machinery wa*
kept in order, must see whew* the mys
terious delicacies thnt apjieared o
promptly were procured.
So, ouc evening, when husband and
wife wen enjoying a ipiiet tete-a-tete,
the servant handed in nn envelope di
rected to Mr. Burton, saying:
" The boy will enll in the morning."
" Itovlel" s*nl l)liver, reading the

" Yes, " Amy *iud.
" Hut 1 never owed the nuui a cent,

ing the folded paper in the envelope.
" 1 think you will find it all right,"
Amy said very eahnly, tlxmgh a red

"All right!" aaid the amared Oliver ;
" the man must be crasy. One turkey

"So that is the way you did it?"
" Yes, dear."
" Hum! quails, grouse, chickens."
" You did not suppose I procured

uotiee, did yon ?' Amy asked demurely.
" No —but—"
" You didn't suppose they came down
the chimney ready cooked, like Hauta
Clans' gifts, did you ?" she asked, still
looking intently at her sewing.
" Well, not exactly that—but—"
" You told me 1 was not to miud the

There wan a long silence. Oliver ***

the items stared hiiu in the face, and a
very alight effort of memory recalled
nearly every diah. Jones had oompli

With a deep sigh, Oliver said:
" Sinee it is all right, I suppose I
must pay it; but—was it quite fair.
Amy, to spriug such a mine on me ? I
did uot realize the expense, it is trne,
but this bill coming in so unexpectedly
will really hamper me terriblv."
" So, it won't, Ollv. I only wauted
you to understand how expensive and
troublesome it Is to liavo #**} iee#erf
company. Only let me know, and I
will gladly prepare for your frn-uda, at
only a small additional exjen*e."
" But that won't pay this bill."
" Xo, but thia will." And Amy laid
before her husband three crisp fifty

" I don't regret it. Oily, for it has

'• Yen, Ido see it. Yon havo bronght

So Amy lost her grievance, for Oliver
gave her doe notice from that time for
ward when he meant to invite a guest.
True, it wan a strong temptation, when
he met his friends, to run the risk and
take them home, hut the vision of
Boyle's bill, and Amy's sacrifice of her
uncle's wedding present, rose before his
eyes, and he gave the invitation for na
other day, or let it pass. For after all,

A Divorce in the "Good Old Times."
Before the war, in the gold mining
regions of Burke County, North Caro
lina, lived an industrious, well-to-do
colored woman, named Nancy Boyce.
She was engaged to marry Jack, a slave,
and in order to haveeverythiugploasant,
she put her hand in her pocket, and
bought him of his master. But she was
shrewd enough to take a bill of sale of
him, fortunately as it happened, for
Jack turned out to l>e utterly worthless,
and a perfect sot. But little need was
there for Nancy to go to the Courts for
relief by divorce;"she knew a better way
than that. She owned her man, and
she simply sold him to a slave dealer
who carried him off to tips far South
west, so that sharp Nancy was not both

been badly sold before, though not in

to establish a port on the Indian Ocean;
she already has a project for a railway
to India, and the siibjeet of navigating
the Ox US and Jaxartca has long been
under consideration. The chief diffi
culty iu the w ay of running boat* on the
Oxus is the absence of water for sext-ral
mouths of the Year iu some parts of the
river, and the Jaily shifting of the sandy
channel in other parts. Water is gen
erally regarded as a vine qua nou in
strain navigation, aud for most practi
cal purposes the Oxus is useless. The
Jaxurles is somewhat, though not much,
better, but it lias not yet beeu deter

The railway is the only certain means
of rapid communication, but the dis

to the city, where they are sold in the

to chastise them. The heads of the
slain arc brought in by the victors, and
paid for at stipulated prices. The pris

are behoo.led or tortured, according to

Paper In the Boston Fire.
Curious results followed some of the
experiments made tijiou charred paper#
and documents, nnd the examination of
books in safes which proved worthies#
in the great fire. It waa found that
what paper makers call poor paper, pa
per considerably " clayed," stood the
nest test. Parchment paper, used for
bonds and legal documents, shriveled
up expoeedinglr, and the print blister
ed so that it could be read when writ
ing was illegible. So it was with the
engrnved work on notes. The gilding,
on the account books burned and char
red, showed out as bright and clear a*
when the liooks were new, which brings
up the question if to introduce gilt
edged account books would not be well,
on the ground that the gilt would stay
the passage of fire to the pages within.
Books crammed into a safe, so that it
was difficult to get them ont, suffered
considerably less than those that were
set in loosely, and in some cases came
out from safes, in which every thing
else was worthless, so far preserved that
the figures on their pages onuld be de
ciphered. With charred papers, which
could not be made transparent by nny
light whatever nsed, it was found, after
the employment of vitriol, oxalic acid,
chalk, glycerin, and other things, that
any tiling tlmt moistened them to a cer
tain stage-—to which it was delicate
work to g t and not to pass - made the
lines, words, and fignre# legible through
a magnifying glass. It has been the
almost universal experience that lead
pencil marks show out all right where
ink marks cannot be diatingniahed.

It is assorted on (lie best authority
that only a few evenings since n scheme
for starting 100 saloons in the poor dis
tricts of the city of New York wns seri

they sat over their dinner in one of the
most fashionable np town clubs. The
projector of the enterprise hod the ex
pense calculated to such a nicety that
he could warrant a remunerative in
come to any one whe would engage
with him in the traffic. The speculator
did not calculate the number of mur
derers or wife beaters which these 100
(fin mills would annually produce ; but
ie did ascertain to a dead certainty
that 8250,000 clear orofit could bo made
each year. And this, too, in a city
whose"gin mills now running, if placed
in two lines, would fill both sides of

NEW YORK MARKET REPORT.
Domestic Dry Uorwt*.
Business for the spring aud summer
season is about over. There ia always
a marked lull in business during the
latter part of June, and the present
season seems to lie no exception to the
rule. Jobber* have availed themselves
of the dull times the past week to take
account of stock, aud many of them are
now about through, so that the result
of the season'a business, in profit aud
loss, M ill soon be knowu. With agent*
slid commission bouses the movement
at the present time is exceedingly quiet,
the jobbers wanting very few good# of
any description. There seems to lie an
impression nmoiig the trade that dark
I'riuta will open at about lie., and in
the most (Mipular makesuf tine bleached
and brown Shirtings the prices may lie
nhghtly lower than the present quota
tion# by agents, Heavy slumlrd Sheet
ings are considered too high, as com
pared with medium and low grades, and
some profess to ludieve that they will be
a half cent lower.
The movement with importers is ex
ceedingly quiet, the demand from job
tiers and dealers being confined to small
assortments, mostly staple goods of
choice styles for immediate m ants. The
Euro|ieau market for dieas goods is
firm and steady, although not reported
very active, Mfiih prices about the same
a# at this time last year. Our own mar
ket has been so very unsatisfactory for
the pant six mouths, that iuijtortcrs show
mueli hesitation in placing their orders
for good* in the European markets, and
there is now little fear that this market
will be so largely over-supplied with
foreign fabrics a* it was last spring,
while those that have desirable staple
goods on hand are not anxious to press
salt s except at full prices. Block Al
pacas, Mohairs, an>l Black Bilks are
considered safe good* to hold at present
rates. With jobbers busiueas is rather
quiet iu Dreaa Hoods, although there is
a moderately fair demand for thin sum
mer goous, but mostly for those offered
at verv low price#. Percales and Lawns
are se Uing very slowlv, with no recent
change in vnlues. lints* Linens and
thin suiting fabrics are moving Tery
The woolen good*market is quiet, with
no material change in the condition of
the trade. The agents for Flannel* have

The market continues very quiet for
cottou good* of all kinds,and so limited
bos been the demand that agents have
tt ought it uot worth while to make any
change* iu prices for the preseut, and
claim that a reduction made at this time
would not iucrcase the amount of busi
ness, but would only have an injurious
effect on the future market. Jobbers
are now making concessions from the
regular prices, where they can effect
sales by doing so ; but while business
remains so dull as it is uow, any con
cessions made by the agents would In
divided by the jobber* with their cus
tomers, and result still further iu
demoralizing the market. By the latest
reports frem the South, the prospect
looks a little more favorable for thr
cotton crop, wuicli lias iu a measure
checked the speculative feeling in that
staple, while there is also less disposi
tion on the part of some few holder* of
cotton goods to stimulate a speculative
feeling in the market. But buyers
have made up their minds not to be
caught us they were a year ago. Agents
generally seem to be mclined to a con
servative jioliey, and let the market
take a legitimate course. If all would
take this view of the matter, it would
result in a steadier and more satislac
tory business the coming antumn than
the spring will prove to hare been, for
many, at the close of the present month.
There ia no new feature to note thia

The Law and Railroad Tariff*.
Illinois is going forwnrd steadily in
the experiment of regulating railroad
tariff* by law. The operation of the
new law with reference to freight rates
is not definitely determined ; but it is
probable that nn attempt will he mode
by the railroads to secure nnder it an
advance of local rates e., rates within
the State, amounting to something like
one-third of those now charged. Iu
this scheme the Altou and St. Louis
Road has taken the lead, and if it is
successful the result to many of the
business interests of the State will not
be only injurious, but in some in
stances, ruinous. The railroads will
unquestionably have to meet their cus
tomers in court, where the plea will lie
made that any advance is " unreason
able," anil "unreasonable" charges
subject them, according to the recent
law, to heavy fines, ranging from 81,000
to $- r >,ooo, for the first offence, up to
8*25,000 for each offence subsequent to
the third. On the other hnnd, the
workiugof the law in regard to possen
ger rates is likely to tend to a general
reduction, estimated as likely to bring
the average rate as low nn three and a
half cents per mile.
Young Men and Marriage.
The Rev. Howard Crosby, D. P., in
an article in the Astoria/iou Monthly
discussing the obligations mid duties of
yonng men, uses these words: "The
true girl has to IM> saught for. She
does not parade herself as show-goods.
Hhe in not fashionable. Generally she
is not rich. Rut, oh! what a heart she
linn when you find her—no large, and
pure, and womanly! When you nee it
you wonder if those nhowv things out
side are really women. If you gain her
love, your two thousand are a million.
She'll not ask for a carriage, or a first
class house. Hhe will wear simple
dresses, anil will turn them when it is
necessary, with no vulgar magnificat to
frown upon her company. She'll keep
everything neat and nice in yonr sky
parlor, and give you such a welcome
when yon come home that you'll think
your parlor higher than ever. She'll
entertain true friends OR n dollar, and
astonish you with n new thought of how
very little happiness depends on money!
She'll mnko you love hame-if yon don't
you're a brute—and teach you liow to
pity, while you scorn, ft poor fashiona
ble society that thinks itself rich, and
vainly tries to think itself happy."
A Valuable Religious Work. ~ZZL
't'lia great want of the day haa ltaer. a
popular religion# work, euited to the
ooutprehension of the inaaaca, which
should occupv the broad ground of Or
thodox Christianity, and carefully
avoid all sectarian issues. This want
haa Imh-ii anpplicd in the work which
the National Publishing Co. of Phils
dolphia have juat issued, entitled
"The Light iu the East." It is a
haudsouie octavo volume, of HSO Jiages,
illustrated with over '2OO fine engravings
by the best artists of England and
The title of the book lis* btw n well
chosen ; since the volume contain# a
clear and comprehensive condensation
of all the bletmed light that has dawned
U|M>U us from the East. The la#is of
the work is Fleetwood'* Life of Christ,
that exquisite production of utie of the
most brilliant aivineaof the last century,
it telis the story of the Redeemer's life
slid suffering#, with simple eloquence
and fervor, and is #o conservative in its
npirit, that men of all denominations
have united in cordially endorsing it.
Following the Life of Christ we hare
brief, but comprehensive J biographies
of the Apostles, the Propheta, the
, Martyrs, and the principal Holy Men
uml Women of the Jewish dia(*ensatiou
and the early church. They are ad
mirably written, and contain a vast
amount of entertaining and instructive
, reading, covering *ll the ground from
Bt. John to the Reformation.
Added to these ia a history of the
Jews, embracing the entire narrative of
the Hcriptures, and extending it down
to the liegiutiiug of the present century.
This constitute# a vcrv attractive feature
of the book, and will be eagerly read
by all. There is nothing so interesting
or thrilling iu all the range of rotnxore
-•a the history of the chosen people of
God. Then follows a aeries of sketches
of the principal religions denomination*
of the world, in all ages, which ia full
of instruction and valuable for refer
ence. The book close# with a Chrono
logical table, by means of which the
reader is enabled to follow th# progress
of the Gentile world whilst Israel waa
I working out her destiny.
Thus we have in this splendid volume
a complete and comprehensive library
of religious literature. The Editor ha#
included in it all tlist is raarntial for
j * Christian to know, aud murh that is
j pleasant to read of. The book is de
cidedly the most attractive and useful
volume of its kind that we have seen,
i and is sure to commend itself to every
| reader. It should have a place in every
Christian household, for it is a sum
mary of the labor* and[reaearehes of the
most learned Biblical students of the
! day; such men as Dr. William Hmith,
Dean Alford, Dr. Brown, the Bishop of
Ely, Dean Milliuan, Dr. Browne, Sir
James Ferguson, Lord Arthur llervey,
and others, on whom the editor tells us
he haa drawn freely for liia materials.
Altogether it is the most thorough and
J complete book of the day, and * ill
doubtless meet with a sapid sale. The
Publishers hare placed it at such a low
price that it is within the reach of every
one. The work is for sale by anbaerip

Aatiquity of Umbrellas.
Dr. Morrison, the great missionary to
China, states that there is mention
made of umbrella# and parasols in
books printed in China more than 1,500
year# ago, aud that that most wonder
ful traveler, Layard, relate# that he dis
covered on the ruins of Nineveh, in has
relief, representation of a King in a
chariot, with an attendant holding an
umbrella over his head. In India, we
also find the umbrella has l>een used in
remote ages, and principally as emblem
of royalty, its shape differing very little
from those in modern use. In llurmah
the princes use a very large umbrella,
and it requires a separate attendant to
carry it, and liis position is a recognized
one An the royal Household. One of the
titles of the King is as follows: " King
of the white elephant and lord of the
twenty-four umbrella*." The Emperor
of China, who never does anything on a
small scale (if he can help it), has no
fewer than twentv-fonr umbrellas ear
ned before him when he goes ont hunt
ing. It ia used in that country as a
defence against rain as well as sun, and
is princi|ially made of a sort of glazed
silk r paper beautifully painted. We
find umbrellas mentioned as in use, or
at least known in England, 140 year#
ago. In Cambridge, we rend that early
in the last century umbrellas were let
out on hire fur so lunch per honr, like
sedan chairs. Jonas Hanwsy, the foun
der of a hospital in London, had the
courage to carry habitually an umbrella.
He died in ITtfl, and it i# said that he
carried an umbrella for thirty year* ; so

Story of a leaden Ballet.
On Friday last Dr. Small was railed
to attend a young man named CI arm or
Abbot. The doctor discovered unrais
takable symptoms of lead poisoning.
It appears tbat Abbot was wound ad tu
the tuigh at the battle of the Wilder
ness, 1864, and tbat the bullet could not
be fonnd at the time. He bus suffered
somewhat etrer since, lira. Small and
Gordon on Saturday morning etherised
the patient, and proceeded to moke a
surgical examination, which resulted in
the discovery of the ball in the thigh.
The bullet was opcased in a bony sul>-
stat)cc of about the size of a gooae'a
egg. the shell of which waa one-fourth
of an inch thick. The bullet liaa been
tumbling about in this cavity for eight
years and become worn and polished aa
smoothly as though it hod been done
on an emory wheel. Sufficient amount
of the lead, however, had permeated
the encasing and entered the system to
produce lead poisoning, which would
