    Farm, Harden and Household.
Itrwtna la Warming,
Though a man adds something each
year to Bis bank account it doea not
tollonr. as a matter of course, that he is
a gilm farmer. The annual surplus
may represent a woru-out wife, sons
prematurely old from excessive labor,
and land so impoverished that a long ,
period of generous and costly tillage
will be required to restore its wasted
There is a large class of farmers who
despise alike book learning and book
farming. Thev pride themselves in do
ing just as their fathers and grandfath
ers. generations back, have done. Theii
cattle resemble Pharaoh's lean kinc,
and their piga are fit companions for !
thoif pattl* Thia class is almost always
poor and in debt; ill luck is with thorn
a perpetual and life-long complaint,
Tlicy are to bo pitied and if possible
aroused to a better mode of life.
Another class of farmers, and among
them are some of our noblest citiaena,
satisfied that their fathers have not pur i
imeil the beat modes of culture, are i
making praiseworthy efforts to improve- i
men to. They are the men who origin***
and support our Fanners" Clubs ; who i
get up and attend Farmers' Oouven- : ]
tions, who read and pay for Agricul
tural papers, and who are supporters of 1 1
County and State Fairs. They would ,
be right if they only knew exactly which
way is the right one, but the knowledge
thev derive from their journals is ao im
perfect, the peculiarities of their soil, i
climate, and circumstances, are such
that they must depend on their own
knowledge and judgment in directing i
the management of their affairs. The
great want of these men ia a thorough
knowledge of their soil, its capabilities,
its adaptation to different crops, the '
kind, quantities, qualities of manure, ,
best suited to the various crops, and the
best modes of cultivating them ; the i
kinds of stock beat adapted to different j
localities, the beat methods of draining
off surplus water in a very wet season, i
and of protecting crops from injury by 1
drouth in a very dry one. Whcu this
knowledge is attained the farmer will
not plant a field with wheat that shiinld j 1
liato corn planted in it, or seed down j
to grass, when plowed crops, well > ]
manured for two or three rears, would !
be Utter. He will not buy Short-Horus
when Ayrshire* or Jerseys are what
he really needs. Ho will know just how <
to improve his breeds of sheen and 1
hogs ; just what fruits will flourish best <
on his soil and in his locality, and iu I'
general be relieved from all guess work
in his decisions as to his most judicious
course. Though we are manifestly im
proving iu the science of cultivation, !
not a year posses that we may uot count
up mistakes,, and sometimes they are
serious ones. Lost season was, ou the
whole, the most profitable one that I
ever had, yet my guessing wrong in one
matter cost me same hundreds of dal- '
lars, and in another point where I came
verv near guessing wrong, but did final
ly decide right, the mistake, if I had
mode it, would have cost me over a
thousand dollars.— L. F. L.,JCtnyt Cb.,

Swtae Breeding.
Prof. 0. W. Jones, in the Farmers' ,
Home Journal says: "For the health of f
swine, I have counted the following con
dition essential:
Abundant, nutritions, and varied food
at regular intervals. %
Comfortable shelter from rains, hot
suns and cold winds.
Pure water and pure air.
Access to fresh earth.
Exercise and sunshine.
Which of these conditions is most im
portant, I do not know, bat I am sure
that failure in any one of them will work
mischief. I have myself carefully at
tended to them all, and so far have no
sickness, no sows to die in farrowing,
no sown to eat their young, no broken
down foot joints, no barrenness; but as
I look about among my neighbors, I see
frequent failures. One gentleman has
recently lost forty-five ont of forty-eight'
Eiga, mostly at three to five weeks old.
'pon examination, I found they were
confined in small floored pens, with no
0001*08 to the ground; other pigs near
by which ran ont. but received the same
treatment otherwise, were doing well. I
believe fresh earth would have helped \
them. Another gentleman has his pigs
stinted; they are in a small lot, with in
sufficient shelter and are fed mainly on
corn-meal. A large range, better shelt
er and greater variety of food would save
XVbat the Farmer Slut Know.
The farmer, like the business man,
must know what he is doing ; he most
have some prettv decided ideas of what
he is to accomplish—in fact, he must
calculate it before hand.
He most know his soil—that of each
sort; not only the top, but the sub
He mast also know what grain and
grass are adapted to each.
He most know when is the best time
to work them, whether they need sum
mer fallowing.
He must know the condition in which
the ground must be when plowed, so *
that it be not too wet nor too dry.
He must know that some grain re
quires earlier sowing than others, and
what these grains are.
He must know that it will pay to havs
machinery to help him as'well as
He must know about stock and man
ures, and the cultivation of trees and
small fraits, and many other things. In
a word, he must know what experi
enced, observing farmers know, to be
sure of suocess. Then he will not guess
—will not run such risks.
Cr for Colic In Horace and Holes.
To cure eolic in the ordinary medical
way, ths Stock Journal says, you can
Srepare a good " colic drench " thus :
ake tincture of opium, one ounce;
sulphuric ether, half an ounce; mix
with a pint of tepid water. If neces
sary, repeat in half an hour. A much
better way to relieve the horse is the
application of a fomenting bandage to
the abdomen. In winter wet a woolen
blanket with hot water, wring it slightly,
and apply to the abdomen, bring the
ends up over tbs back and fasten. If
the weather be very cold, put a dry
blanket over this to keep it from cool
ing too fast. In the rammer apply a
blanket wet in cool water. This foment
ing blanket will relieve the horse in a
few minutes, by determining internal
heat to the surface. We have found in
summer almost instant relief to the
horse from lying down in the water.
Harness Polish.
The Carriage Journal gives the fol
lowing mixture for harness polish, viz.;
5 pounds of stearine, 7j pounds of oil of
turpentine, and one ounce of bone black.
The stearine is beaten, cut into tlrin
sheets, the oil of turpentine is then
poured over it and incorporated with it;
the mass is then melted in a water bath
(a vessel surrounded with hot water)
and while liquid the bone black is stir
red into it. It is then allowed to cool,
being well stirred until cold. In using
it a small portion is pat on a thick wool
en cloth, and rubbed on the leather;
after standing an hour or two a fine
polish is obtained by rubbing with an
old silk handkerchief. By this polish
an old harness may be made to look al
most equal to new.
Bod For The Bugs.
The method of preparing the lime
and carbolic acid powder for the cab
bage wotm is as follows: "Take lime
and water in the proportion of 28 pounds
of lime to 9 pounds (or pints) of water
(any less quantities in the same propor
tion) whan the lime is fresh. Mix one
onnoe of solution of carbolio acid as
sold in the drag stores (20 parts of wa
ter to 1 of crystallized acid) to every
quart of water. Poor the water ana
acid npon the lime ia a pail, by which
it will fall to pieces and become re
duced to a fine powder. This powder
is known as carbolate of lime, and is a
very good remedy against almost every
insect pest, especially the cabbage
worm, squash bugs of all sorts, and the
striped cucumber bog.

man were : " Henry, if you ever marry
again, remember that it only takes a

One bitterly odd night in the Feb
ruary of 1872, 1 quitted my comfortable
study for the purpose of eneoonsing
myself behind a white tie, ami of en
eating my person in tit,we stereotyped
sable garments which cry, " Open,
scskme," st the portals of seiety.
My friends, the Wilkin*, were indulg
ing in a tit of insanity, and the attack,
which in the commencement promised
to l>e of a somewhat mild form, gradual
ly assumed graver symptoms, until it
culminates! iu a tremendous ball. Vain
ly I pleaded a noecasity for reading up
a case with which the eminent firm of
Tester ltulsomo had entrusted me.
Vaiuly I declared to Wilkin, upon the
honor of a man and a brother, that 1
was "out of that sort of thing;" and
that I wax only rnxal for the mahogany ;
he didn't, or rather wouldn't see it, and
witli a sense of bitter injury at niv
heart, and an unmistakable sense of
frost at the tip of my nose and my ex
tremities gene rally, 1 pulled myself
together, dressed hurriedly, and arrived
at Barley street iu a humor the verv
reverse of amiable, and with the full
determination of merely showing myself
to Mrs. Wilkin, imbibing a glass of
sherry, and getting back to resume the
perusal of a uovel.
The crush had uot as yet Ixvui well
tprned my ascent to the drawiug
rooms was no Verv ditlicult task. I'pon
the lobby Mrs. YVilkiu was standing,
behind a huge bouquet which com
manded the staircase like a great floral
gun; and Wilkin was prowling in the
immediate vicinity, with the air of a
man who hail succeeded iu losing half
a sovereign, and wa engaged in look
tug for it an though he Wanted it very
badlv indeed.
" Xh, Mr. Brookley I I'm so glad
that .vow have conic. Freddy told me
you were doubtful—*ll clever men are,
but vow know I always believe iu you,
and I look tovowr aid to make this lit
tle affair go off well."
J groaned fit spirit. Thia meant
stopping uutil the candles were snuffed
ont—until the tallow-faced greengrocer*
were paid off—until the milkman or
rived at the area railings, and until I
should be jibed by disappointed cab
bies as "the cove as was a-playm' the
"Bv the way, Brookley, there's a
little Irish girl'stopping here, a Miss
Blake. Come, and I'll introduce yon
as a friend o' mine," observed Wilkin,
dragging me towards a mass of tulle
illusion surmounted by a bunch of
white flowers.
Now, any Irish girls whom I had
hitherto been fortunate enough to meet
had, somehow or other, been always too
much for me. If I wax blase, they
were saucy. If I was degagr, they
were sentimental. If I was learned,
they were blissfully and gushingly ig
norant. I had been invariably foiled,
and my piost skilful fencing went for
nothing. I had not been able to score
a palpable hit under any circumstances
I held bock much after the fashion of
a dog being led to corporal punish
ment through the medium of a collar
and string— bowed a grim, ungainly
bow, and proceeded to fiddle with the
buttons of a pair of soiled, bulgy glove*,
and to glare in every direction save that
supposed to be occupied by Mrs. Wil
kin's Hibernian guest.
At this juncture an attenuated, wax
en-looking. half-fed artist, hung in
chains, and clod in g-.umenta shining
with grease aud threadbare from age,
proceeded to pound away upon the
piono, aided and abetted bv a pndgey
man, who appeared to be blowing his
whole person into a battered cornopean;
and another conspirator, who discharged
his duties to society and to Wilkin by
dolefully scraping upon a violincello.
" This ia our quadrille," exclaimed a
very sweet voice at my elbow, with just
a touch of the brogue pervading it like
a perfume, and a soft little hand pu.eed
itself confidingly upon my arm. I had
not asked her to dance—she had evi
dently token it for granted.
Would I say that I hail never danoed ?
that I hod sprained my foot ? or invent
some patent and plausible excuse?
No fit would not be fair to mine
hostess, ao I sullenly resigned myself
to ev fate.
"This is my first visit to London,"
chirped Mia* Blake.
" Oh, indeed !"
" I five in the wilds of Connemara."
" I wish you were there just now,"
was my inner thought
"It's the wildest place on the face of
the earth, and the lowliest—but won't
you secure a rie-a-ri* ?'
I compounded with a pink-fac d
youth who was in talous of a tali, lean,
vulture-like woman, to faoe me in the
forthcoming melancholy ceremonv, and
to assist in carrying out its sad solemni
ties in all their funeral details.
"Have vou ever visited Ireland, Mr.
Brookley?" asked Miss Blake, at the
oonrulsion of the first figure.
" I should think not. Ireland is a
wretched mistake."
The moment the words escaped from
my lips, I could have parted with a
good deal of ready money to have been
enabled to draw them back again.
They were childish, rude, ungentleman
like, and I turned to ber to apologize.
The hot flush was upon her cheek,
the little hands were clinched until the
f loves threatened to "burst up," and
er flashing eyes met mine as she hotly
retorted—"You must be an English
boor to say so."
The pas seul commenced, and, to
use a stags phrase, Miss Blake " went
What a charming figure ! What an
elegant turn of the head ! What grace
in every movement!
I had committed a blunder, and IJeU
it. She went through the entire figure
alone. She would not deign to take— to
touch my outstretched hand. I had no
words at will to cudgel into a proper
form of apology, and I was bewildered
by her beauty.
Lovely blue eyes, with sweeping bine
black lashes; a dainty little r.ose, with
a rosebud mouth, and teeth like muffled
diamonds ; raliant brown hair in mas
sive plaits—and her expreaaion !
A.v de mi Albania !
We did not speak daring the quad
rille. The pink-faced youth—confound
hie impudence— struck up an acquaint
anceship with her, and treated the vul
ture-looking woman badly. I felt
inclined to hurl him at his partner, im
pale him upon ber none, and rush fran
tically from the house. The charming
disdain with which I was treated by
Miss Blake, rendered mo more miser
able, and it was only when the laws of
society compelled her, at the conclusion
of the dance, to toko my arm, in order
to be conducted to the place whence she
came, that I ventured to exclaim—" I
implore of you to forgive me—l did not
know what I was saying— l am worse
than a boor. Hear me for one moment;"
and in a few eager words I honestly re
vealed to her the irritated and inflamed
condition of ray mind, upon finding
myself stranded in a scene ao utterly at
variance with mv mood, and compelled,
as it were, to drink the bittor cup to
the uttermost dregs.
My pleadings were full of the redeem
ing influence of earnestness, and I suc
ceeded in achieving her forgiveness.
She danced with me again and again. I
saw the candles snuffed out, beheld the
tallow-faced greengrocer paid off, met
the morning milk without flinching,and
returned the playful banter of the cab
bies in a mood so utterly different from
that which I had pictured to myself a
few short hours previously, that—
Pshaw ! who can control the inner
mechanism of the heart ?
I • • * • •
One gtorions morning in August last
found me seated beside the driver of
one of Bianconi's long ears which travel
between Westport and Clifden, and, as
a consequence, through the heart of the
wildest and most picturesque scenery
in Connemara. I had, amongst other
vows, registered one that, as soon as
circumstances would permit, I would
undertake a pilgrimage to Boljolderan
to the shrine of Miss Katherine,
alias Kitty Blake.
It is unnecessary for me to state that
I had many reasons to urge me to
take this excursion, and that I had one
in particular; in fact, my heart had,
somehow or other, slipped from be
neath my waistcoat—had traveled, in
company with Miss Blake, to her moun
tain h.mie; ami it wan with a view of
recovering it, ami of taking the young
lady in question in 'the bargain, if my
lurk was p, tliat 1 waa now perched
high in air, behind a pair of " roaring
gimlets," and jogging along the road
way skirting that desolate hut romantic
inlet ef the Atlantic ki own as Killerm.
In a happv moment I negotiated with
the driver. I'lul Demjmey, for posses
sion of the box-eeat, and aliuoet ere we
had quitted the town of Weetixirt. 1
had come on close, if not eonthlential,
terms with that worthysou of the whip.
PJjil in a crooked, hard-featured aen
tentious little man, whose wt>nl is law,
whose decision is an ultimatum. He
knows every man. woman and child
along the road- their belongings, their
respective histories, their hopes, and
fears, lie carries small parcels for the
"quality," and a letter, it good eause is
shown why it could not travel ly the
legitimate course of her majesty's mail,
lie htm all the lHibliu news, and is re
garded in the light of " a knowledge
able man."
Instinctively I led up to the subject
nearest to uiy heart.
Me know the Btskes av Boliolderun ?
Begorra, I do thin, breed, seed ami gm
oration. They're dacent people nv the
rale on Id stuck. Miss Kitty th raveled
wild uie a few weeks ago; she keiu
from Dublin, but she was over the
water bcyont. tu Loudon. Sorra s
much good that wud do her, or any
wan else."
1 expressed a hope that she was look
ing well after her trip.
" Och ! rosy an' well, shore enough;
and whv wudn't she ? What wud
thrtibla her, and her mother wud burn
the hom>e av she ris her little finger.
They'll uot lo thrublcd wud her long ;
she's too dawiiy a orature for the boys
to lave alone. 1 tuk a Misther Crane
from Dublin over to the Hall last weak,
an', bo me song, he was mighty teudher
on her."
This was alarming. I endeavored to
probe iuto the antecedents of this
abominable jwrsou, but 1 could only
ascertain, after a deal of circumlocu
tion, that he was the possessor of "an
iligant porUuantle," and that he was
"a nice man, an' a uieo-mannered man." :
•' Are ye expected at BoljolJeruu, I
air r he asked, shortly.
" Well—vea —oh, yes, certainly," I
replied, somewhat coufusedly.
" Yer an English gmtlemau, by yer
way av talkiu", sir?"
" Yes, I'm English."
" Maybe yer from London, air ?"
" I am."
" And seen Miss Kitty over there.
Whew !" Here he gave a prolonged
whistle, which might have been iuteud
ed for the horses, but I felt that it bore
direct reference to myself.
" Troth, thiu, you are expected, sir,
and there'll be bright eves and ml
cheeks at the cross-roads whin we
rache there, or I'm boccagh—Miss Kitty
will be there, sir, in her own pouy-car
I ilid not know whether to be amused
or annoyed. i
" You seem to be well aware of Miss i
Blake's mevciucnts, Mr. Dempsey."
" Arrali, didn't she tell me herself,,
the cruytnrc ! Didn't she say to me,
says she, • Dimpaey, take care av a very
handsome voting gmtlemau that's com
in' to see me from London,' says she.
* Is it the gintleman that I posted all
the letters to in West port, miss ?' 'Go
owo'that, Dimpsey,' says she. Blnr
au'-agers! whv didn't ye tell me ye
wor Misther iirookley, and I'd have
rouaetl the griddle for ye, air, an' no :
I could have token Phil Dempsey to
mv arms aud cherished him.
"Begorra! there's the cross-roads,
and there's Miss Kitty in her basket
shandhradau like a pitayteel creel.
Didn't 1 tell ye, sir, how it wud be ?"
It is scarcely necessary to observe
that I experienced that sinking sensa
tion of the heart which the immediate
prospect of a meeting with the adored
one now fails to create; that I pretended
to be looking the other .way, and not to
have perceived her; that I bounded
from my pearcli with the agility of an
aeroliat, and that I "tipped" Phil Demp
sey to he utmost limit of his satisfac
"J tak good care nr him. mis*," ob
served that worthy in a tone knowu an
a pig's whisper, "but he was as wild as
a young eoult in me hands; but he's a
nice man, an' a nice-mannered man, an'
I wish yez joy."
"Stupid ereatnre ! I never can under
stand him," said Kitty ltlake, with a
saucy toss of her head; "I'm afraid he
haa been taking the mount tin dew as he
came along."
At this crisis we wero joined by Mr.
Blake jwrr, a splendid specimen of pa-
Itrfamilicu, who welcomed me to Con
neuiara con a more • my portmanteau
was placed in the basket-carnage, and
Kitty rattled away with it, leaving me
to walk across the mountain to the Hall.
And such a mountain, bear and bleak
and precipitous; and for any step I made
in advance I made two In "the opposite
direction; but I pushed bravely on, and
sacrificed a brand-new pair of patent
leather buttoned boots during the ex
cruciatiug process. Bnt what cared I
for boots, or mountain, or physical an
guish? Was there not love-light in the
eye of Kitty Blako?—was I not ap
proaching the Mecca of my hopes ?
I remained a month at Boljoldrnn
Hall, I held the stereotyped interview
with Blake jtcre in his study, which
terminated most satisfactorily—
Well, yes—
I am to return to Coanemara before
Valentine's Day, and claim the hand of
the sweet little Irish girl who called me
an English boor.
Young Mechanics.
There is no class of the community
upon whom the futnro welfare of the
country more essentially depends than
upon the rising generation of young
mechanics. If they are intelligent,
sober, industrious and consequently in
dependent, able and accustomed to
judge for themselves, and governed in
their conduct by an enlightened view of
their own best interests; if thoy are
men of this sort, the mechanics, and es
pecially the young mechanics, will form,
in conjunction with the young farmers
of the country, a bulwark against mono
polies and corrupt politicians, and save
the republic. If, on the other hand,
they are ignorant, idle, dissolute, and
consequently poor, and dependent upon
those who are willing to trust them—if
our mechanics should unhappily lie
come such a class—they would soon lie
converted iuto the mere tools of a few
rich and artful men, who, having first
stripped them of every sense of self-re
spect, and every feeling proper to virtu
ous citizens, would use them as passivo
instrument* for promoting their own
ambitious objects, and for the enact
ment of laws which are beneficial to no
body but the artful few and base
demagogues with whom they originate.
It is as true of the mechanical arts as
of anyother profession that "knowledge
is power."
A Cool Ketreat.
The Poughkeopsie Trlrr/raph ssys
that there is ft pass in the Catskill
Mountains, between Sliandakin Centre
and W'estkill, Ulster County, whero
snow and ice can be found at all soa
nonn'of the year. A road runs some
fire miles up a deep hollow, bounded
on the two sides by high mountains,
with a clear ice-cold stream of water
running down its centre. Stretching
across the head of this hollow is another
mountain somewhat higher than the
others, that makes one think that the
passage-way had suddenly terminated
in a sort of cut dr *ac, but upon arriv
ing at its base the road turns directly
to the right and enters a narrow pass,
hardly fifty feet in width. On each
side the mountains tower np a thousand
feet from the roadway, not perpendicu
lar, but so steep that when the trees
have shed their foliage the top can be
seen by a person standing at the foot.
There is snow and ice during the hot
tost days of summer a few feet from the
roadway. There are large masses of
solid ice in some caves not further than
five feet from the road. Strange as it
may seem, the growth of vegetation is
very rank, the Lichens especially cover
ing the rocks profusely, though ani
mals are very scarce, it being too cold
for their cemfort.
Giant fonder.
Chemistry itself i at a loaa to esti
mate the power of nitroglycerine, any*
the Virginia City (Cal.) (.-Imunele, and
yet this new agent of death 1* twenty
per cent stronger. That our render*
may be enabled to form a faint concep
tion of the danger of such a prepara
tion, we will give a brief description of
the prooeaa by which nitro glyoeriue,
giant and Hercules powder are sup
posed to be manufactured, and of the
extreme caution neocaaary in their manu
In the manufacture of nitro-glycerine,
two tubes, each about a quarter of nil
inch in diameter and six inches in
length, lead into a single tube of double
their capacity, but of tbe same length.
Nitric acid is introduced into one and
sulphuric acnl into the other of these
sitiull tubes. The large tube contain*
glycerine. The two actus are then
forced gradually into the glycerine, and
the chemical combination thus form* itu
explosive of incalculable jaiwer. So
iMiwerful and dangerous is this article,
that uot nil ounce of it is allowed in the
pianufactory while this little tut>c, six
inches long and half an inch iu diame
ter, ia being tilled, and this tube is kept
constantly swathed in i-jo during the
process. To make giant powder, this
nitro glycerins ia allowed to drip upon
a clay (similar to meerschaum) imported
from tieriuany. The clay i the only
perfect abaorlient of intro-glycerme
known. As Hereulca powder is darker,
it is believed tliut tluit explosive is
manufactured by the aauie process,
charcoal, an imperfect abaorbeiit, being
used no-toad of said quality of clay.
If, in tlie manufacture of uitro-glyoeriue,
a strong tube is kept swathed in ice,
and a quantity of the liquid ouly six
inches iu length and half ail inch m
diameter ia allowed in tlie building at
the same time, no wonder that General
Von Bckkeleu, with his preparation
twenty |>er cent more powerful, re
marked that he would have it handled
thermometer in hand.
lion to Prevent Sunstroke,
The following specific against inn
stroke may save from illness utul death
many whose occupation oblige* them to
bo in tbo tiold or out upon the streets:
"About a year since 1 saw in a news
paper an account of a mm of mm
stroke, written bv the party himself.
After suffering a long time from the at
tack, and having, to a considerable de
gree, recovered, he ei|>oneueed suffer
ing even from the rays of the moon. !
This led him to the reflection that it j
was not altogether the heat of the suu
that produced prostration. After much
research he discovered that the injury
came from the chemical ray, and not
from the heat ray. lie was guided to
this by observing the fact that a photo
graph could not be taken through a
hollow glass. Accordingly, he lined his
hat with two linings—one of orange
yellow to arrest the chemical ray, and
I>ne of green to arrest the heat ray.
Thus prepared, he went where the rays
of the suu were most intense with j>er
fect impunity. It is well known that
the negro is seldom or never suiistrnck.
The color of his skin over the skull be
ing of the orange yellow may n-~Mt in
accounting for the fact. I practiced
upon this suggestion all last summer,
liued my hat with green and orange yel
low paper, and hiul confidence enough
in the truth of the theory, to neglect my
umbrella, which I had never done before
I mentioned it to many, who tried
it also, and in many cases that camo
nndcr my observation, they uniformly
assorted that the oppressive limit of the
sun upon the head was much relieved."
Ignorance of a Common Matter.
Says the Philadelphia ledger: There
is probably no business so generally
participated in as insurance, in which
so little is practically known. Many
think if they insure a specified t -operty
for $.">,000, and the property is partially
or wholly destroyed, that they recover
the full insurance, regardless of the
fact that the property destroyed may
not be of half the value. This is a com
mon error, though of course confined to
the less informed in such matters. Oth
ers, carrying a stock varying in value
from $25,000 to gfiO.OOO, and an insur
ance for the smaller sum, sup]a>se that,
iu case of damage by fire, involving a
loss of the greater amount, they can
recover the entire face of their policies,
wheu, in truth, the insurance companies
are liable only pro rata for the loss sus
tained. If the insurance policies in
solvent companies are drawn iu plaiu

loss on stock valued at $30,000 to which

Hut if they coutaiu what is known as
"the average clause," which reads, " It
is understood and agreed that claims
under this policy shall ouly be for such
proportion of tbo entire loss as the
amount of this insurance bears to the
whole value of the property insured,"
then in case of loss on any part of $30,-
000 stock, with $25,000 insurance, the

What to Drink.
As our climate at this season engen
| ders considerable thirst, the people iu
general need some refreshing drink.
! At the present day no thirst a)layer is
as popular as soda water when flavored
with the many delicious syrups now in
; general use.' This popular beverage,
j eanuot prove injurious when the gas is
i generated in the improved apparatus
i for evolving it, and the soda water held
jin tin-lined fountains. Copper fouu
\ tains were first used, but the soda ac
ting upon the copper made a liquid that
was far from healthful. The quantity
sold during the heated term in New
York is about five thousand gallons
daily. As a glass of soda, with the
syrup, costs the dealer only two and
i one- half cents, and sella for ten cents,
where any considerable quantity is dis
i posed of, the profits of the business
can lc readily seen. One populnr soda
fountain on a crowded thoroughfare iu
the same city the nts proprietors the
large sum of two hundred and fifty
dollars a day; from another fountain
soda to the value of two hundred dollurs
per diem is frequently drawn. Many
| druggists receive, some days, one hun
; dred and fifty dollars for such sales,
when their location is favorablo for the
I business.
Honest I ago.
A Canadian paper repeats the follow
ing anecdote with great unction : Five
years ago a gentleman in the United
States (as gentlemen frequently do in
that and other countries) got up a rail
road speculation, for which it was
thought necessary that there should be
a Government subvention. Tho affair
was duly submitted to Congress, and on
engineer of high character, who was
withal a wit, was appointed on the part
of the Government to report on tho
scheme. This scientific man visited the
country, returned, and was one day
sitting in his hotel, with a friend Iviug
on the sofa, when one of the railway
promoters entered and addressed tho
engineer in a low whisper. " Bpeak
out," said the engineer. Accordingly,
after ascertaining that the other party
present was a friend, he said in a loud
voice : " Mr. Smith, if you will fix that
report to suit us. wo will give yon $30,-
(XX) of tho stock." , "Mr. Jones." was
the reply, " when yon want to brile an
honest man—an honest man, mind yon
—come right down with your spoudulics;
and your stock I"
CROWDED. —Few are aware of the
vast numlier of people that can be placed
in a small space. When wo speak of
millions of men we aro opt to picture
to onrselves an almost boundless mass
of humanity, yet a million of people
standing together, each person occupy
ing four square feet, could be placed on
a patch. A square mile would accommo

of the United States would hardly cover
two and a half miles spuure, and the

An Oltl asltnr tell* law Uo luloitralsit

An old sailor who know* how to npin
hi* yarn tell* a story of shanghaiing
time* in New Orleans at a time whan
sailor* were scarce, and even #IOO was
paid in advance, tie says: Tho SIOO
advance was very temptiu*. It was a
big pile of money for a aailor man them
times, and to me, that had always lieoti
used to 815 a month, ami only one
month's advance, it seemed like a small
fortune. 1 tell you, air, chaps in. New
Orleans had to look out for themselves
them times, or tho first thing they
ktiowed they waa down to the lteliso,
shipping sfore tho uinst, anil ngoiu to
l,iver|Miol or some other European port,
and they maybe had never gone to sea
in their lives afore. Ton see, air, the
way they'd do was this: If they caught
a chap tuat was a little lualiy they'd give
him one or two horn* aa was doctored,
ami he'd never know uothin' more till
he woke up the next morion' at the JU<-
lise. Ships used always to leave the le
vee at ulsiut ten o'clock at night. The
low would be made up iu the afternoon,
and the ship, one ou each side of the
steamboat, would be took down to the
lower part of the city, and there they
would wait till the crews wus brought
down at ten o'clock, and pretty lushy all
hands used to be, 1 can t< l) you. If
the mate got any of 'em sober enough
to haul iu the line* arter she was let go
he was lucky. The captain or mate
used to get a lautern out on deck and
call the roll of name* on the articles, and
as each chap answered he would ask Inai
if he had sigmal the articles and gotliu
advance, and if the chap said yea it was ,
all right; and pretty much always tlicy
did say yea after they got so far, for if
they didn't they knew there was always ;
Minn* of the runners right behind 'eui j
that would up hat and knock 'cm down, 1
and then tell the captain that the man
had had lus advance, but was now tryin'
to back out, and the captain eouldn* tell. ;
He knew he'd paid SIOO for the mail,
whether the man had gut it or uot, ami '
it generally ended in the man goin' '
iu the ship, advance or no advance.
Well, there waa generally live or six
that was too drunk to muster, and they
would bo toCk right to the forecastle
and put into bunks. Well the mate
would go for'ard and have a look at
these to see if they breathed ; If they
did all right, but there had been cases
of ruuuera ahipplu' dead men, if so bo |
as how the mate wer'nt sharp, and so it
waa neocaaary for to feel of 'em, and j
see if they breathed. Then the lines j
were cast" off, and the steamer took the
ships down the river, all bauds Iw-iu* j
turned in, and the next moruin' at day
light the mate would muster all hands
for to get the jibboon out, and then he'd .
tlnd ont who lie ha>L If half of "em j
was sailor men he waa luckr. I iniml
one time the captAin of a English bark
beiu' a little in the wind, as one might
aav, some of these runners came athwart
him and got him for to take s drink
with tin-in, and then another, and that
fixed him. They took him to some crib j
and took off his nice suit of clothes, and
put a blue flannel shirt and a pair of
dungaree trousers on to him, and carted
him down aboard of a American slop ■
bound to Havre, and they got sllO for I
him, besides his clothes and watch and
whatever money might be in hispocket;
he didn't know how much. \\ ell, he
went ait and stated his case to the cap
tain, but half dared as be still waa he
couldn't spin a very straight yarn, and
so the captain thought it waa only a
chau a ohawtuiu' to jump the advance,
lie knowed he'd paid for him, and so
he kicked him for'ard agin, and the
poor fellow would have gone to sea
sartm', if the eaptain of the tow-boat
hadn't happened to have know'd bin,
and even he didn't 'cognise him at first ;
but be did arter awhile, and then Le
wi nt to the captain of the ship and paid
him back the advance, and took the fel
low back in the steamboat. Well, he
couldn't do auythiu' a Unit it arter be
got to town, 'cause of course be couldn't
identify thcehapa what done it, and he
didu't care to publish himself aa harm'
been on a spree by makin' any fuss
about it, so be just stood the loaa and
said uothin*. There waa plenty more
cases like this, but this wasn't so bad as
it was for workin'-men—tinkers and
punters, and tailors and what not—to
be took away from their fa tallica and
sent off to sea, not even knowin' the
trade they was sent on ; and the way
them poor fellows was mauled and beat
was u caution, 1 can tell you.
Call for What You W ant.
A few evenings since, a would-be
voting blood entertained two young
• ladies at a Now York saloon, and dnr
| ing tho interview suggested that "we
all take something," and, looking over
the bill of fare, hi* eye fondly rested
on "Champagne eider, 50 cents," the
loudest-named beverage on the bill.
"One bottle of Champagne," ordered
the gent, purposly omitting the word
cider, for effect with the young ladies,
but with a conscience rcfting easy at
fifty eonty. The affable waiter brought
the" article ordered, which was swallow
•d with a keen relish, and it was not
till the young gent confrouted the oash
i ier, where four dollars for Heidsiok
were demanded, that he realized that it
was best to call for what ho wanted,
without any French airs. There was a
sudden shortening of stature as the
yoting man alid down into his boots,
iind pulled out tho legal-tender.
Indian LOTS.
Even the Apache Indian* have a
touch of delicate romance in them.
I Every young girl is at libeKy to refuse
a suitor. Not parent* or brothers may
i interfere in her choice. After a brief
courtship the lover makes a formal pro-
Siaal by offering so many horses.
ursos are a standard of value among
j Indian*. As the squaw does all the
work, horses are accepted as an equiva
lent for her labor. When a voting war
rior becomes enamored, he fastens the
horse near tho wigwam of the sqnaw
whose hand ho seek*, where he is left
for four days. If she fails to feed and
water the horse during that time, the
master is rejected ; but if she accepts
his offer she grooms and kindly care* for
tho horse, and then ties him to the wig
wam of her lover, as much as to say, " I
am willing to be your slave and do your
>'cw I'ss for Snbstltutcs.
The enforcement of the liqnor law
has developed a new, and it ia presumed
paying, branch of industry at Boston,
it is serving as substitutes in working
ont sentences to jail administered to
liquor sellers. At least one liquor sel
ler, against whom a sentence of twenty
days to Houtli Boston jail is duly record
ed on tho court register, has not been
absent from his usual haunts for a day,
while a man called by his name is actu
ally serving out the sentence ; and it is
pretty certain that such cases have been
numerous, and, of course, have been
made possible by the connivance of
prosecuting officers. In China it is
possible evan for a man sentenced to
death to hire a substitute to endure the
infliction of the punishment; but never
before was it posssble for offenders
against the law in Massachusetts to ex
piate their crimes thus vicariously.
AFTER Tn* EDITOR. —In St. Peters
burg recently tlic editor of a daily news
paper being much impressed with the
prevalence of drunkenness, determined
to instruct the public mind on the sub
ject, and witli this view took an excur
sion into the country to collect facts on
the subject. There ho found two typi
cal villages—one, where there was no
tavern, all order and thrift; tho other,
where the tavern was a conspicuous ob-
all poverty, misery, disease, and
dirt." On this he wrote a powerful arti
cle, making an appeal to right-minded
persons to do what they could to miti
gate this evil, but ho unfortunately
brought it to a close by asking, "Where
are the clergy, and why do they not
preach against drunkenness?" The
polico authorities, being unuble to an
swer this home question, gave it up,
and settled the difficulty summarily by
suppressing the edition in which the
article was to appear.
