O HOSTS AND SPELLS.
l'epular Superstitions Prevalent In Lancas
Fer the Intelligencer.
We believe there are many readers
of the present day who can Jbim no idea
of the amount of buperstitien -which still
exists in the minds of a very large number
of the people ; and much of it net
among the illiterate. Fer bevcial jears
the writer of this has observed closely (in
an intelligent community, and where mere
newspapers arc taken than in any eac of
the same population in the county) what a
strong held some superstitious notions have
en the minds of some of the people.
Seme time since the Philadelphia Times
had an article in Friday maniages which
was read with much interest by a great
many readers, and in our mind it almost
settled the saying of a writer some time
age " that there is some superstition in
New as te Friday we knew many intel
ligent farmers who will begin nothing en
that day ; very few mechanics will bein
a building en that day. A mason of our
acquaintance would net take fifty dollars
te even lay out a foundation en Friday,
and a carpenter would net furnish a bill
of material, though in ether matters they
arc intelligent mechanics. We have
known men te begin a job late en
Thursday uight, se that it could net be
said or thought that it was commenced of
Friday. Several years age a large barn
had just been raised; en the night of
the raising a heavy wind storm nicked it
very badly, the reason given was "it was
commenced en Friday," and this was the
accepted cause. A fence commenced en
Friday will net stand. Hogs or cattle
started te fatten en that day will net
thrive. Xe business begun en that day
will be a success.
New, strange as this may appear, these
things are believed and practiced ; and, no
matter hew inconvenient it is, they arc
observed by many people. Many mothers
will net cut the nails oft' an infant's linger
until it is a year old, as it fellows that they
will steal. It is generally said it will
make them long-fingered. The days en
which finger nails arc cut are closely ob
served : certain days ai e unlucky and
these arc carefully avoided.
Any sharp instiument falling from your
hand and sticking up en its point is a sure
sign of geed luck.
Fer a rabbit or squirrel te pass ever
your path ahead of you is bad luck.
Te kill a toad is bad luck, and te de it
intentionally will bring bad luck te your
In dreams there is deep significance ; te
dream of a death is sure te bring a wed
ding and te dream of money three nights
following is a sure sign that you will find
Te sweep out the house after night is te
sweep out your luck. This sign we have
seen very closely observed.
Signs of sudden treasures arc numerous
and we have seen many of these followed
up, but never saw the cash. One instance
in this line occurred within the last year.
Signs developed of a treasure ; a party was
formed te dig it up, and among them we
positively knew there were several young
men of mere than ordinary intelligence.
The digging was bcun and continued for
four days and nights, and hew much
longer it would have been continued we
de net knew, but one of the party spoke,
when le ! the charm was broken, an un
earthly noise ensued and a stampede. And
yet the party firmly believe the treasure
is still there.
At a certain locality in this county, a
full barrel of geld is buried. On the spot
beneath which it lies every summer a pe
culiar flower grows. It is still eagerly
looked for, but has net yet been found,but
will be some time, no doubt. Witchcraft
still has followers. A few living witches
still exist and are held in horror ; and we
could cite cases new where such beliefs are
held. A few years age an old woman died
in this neighborhood who had lived te be
very old, and for whose death prayers had
been offered for twenty-five years before it
came. She was a witch sure, and there
are many people who believe it firmly and
will tell you new that when she died her
hair, which was perfectly white, turned
jet black; that she turned around after
being in the coffin, and many such ridicu
lous stories are actually believed. Very
many people and much stock were be
witched by her, and the spells and charms
used against her would make an interest
Anether woman "put a spell " en a very
old woman, which confined her te the
house. The spell could net be broken.
The old woman lay for years and finally
died, aged ever ninety, and although it was
infirmity of old age that caused her
being bedridden, persons believed and
still believe her te have been bewitched.
Certain places are still haunted. Strange
sights are seen, strange noises aru heard.
Shew people plainly as you can the felly
of it, they will stile-believe the supernat
ural. The writer of this was a few years
age a party te a haunted house and farm
which was played for a long time with
guccess, and the facts of which will be

All these things are believed in this day
and generation, with all our schools and
ether advantages, and it will be a long
time until they are finally lest ; as we
knew many families who are brought up
te believe them, just as their parents de,
and stick as closely te them as te anything
else which they have been taught for gen
The Plant Club.
At the Plant Club en Monday night, the
subject for study and recitation was the
Pistil. The questions placed en the black
board were such as te cover the leading
points which this essential part of the
llewer presents. The class was large, and
nearly eveibedy called upon was ready
with answers and explanations.
The subject discussed in a special paper,
with illustrative drawings, by Mr. Jehn E.
Snyder, of the Lancaster watch factory,
was the Stamen, with its division of au
thor, filament and ovary. Frem this in
teresting paper we make room for the fol
lowing paragraphs relating te the pollen of
the plant :
Iu the cells of the anther is the pollen,
or leitilizing material, appearing as a line
yellow dust. Seen with a micioscepe it
appeals as grains of various forms, but al
ways the same in the same species. Ex
ternally they are often curiously or even
elegantly figured with bauds and stripes,
Its object is te fertilize the pistil, te
produce seed. When mature, each pollen
grain consists of a cellular body, having
two membraneeus coverings, an internal
or intine, and an external or extine. The
intine is thin and transparent, and is capa
ble efgieat expansion ; the extine is firm
gives it color. It is sometimes smooth, ,
sometimes covered with numerous project
ions, points, minute hairs, etc., and elten
with a visccd or oily matter. Within these
ceveiingsa granular semi-lluid matter is
contained, which is the essential part of the
When the anther discharges the pollen
it falls upon the stigma of the pistil, the
short hairs and the moist surface of which
retain it. Absorbing the moisture aud
nourished by material from the style and
stigma, the pollen grains begin te grew.
The inner covering or intine, separates
from the outer and elongates into a tube
tilled with the matter which the
grain contains. This tube, remaining
closed, penetrates through the loose tissue
of the style until it reaches the seed which
it is tefeitilize.
Thus far we have supposed that the pol
len falls directly upon the stigma after it
has left the anther. This is net se. In
some plants the anthers aie cxtrese, or
turned away from the pistil, and in vari
ous ways it is impossible te reach the stig
ma where only it cau fulfill its mission
without the help of some external agent.
This is found in the insects, biids, wind,
etc. These fcitilized by the wind are the
glasses, oaks, pine, etc. It is cuiiouste
notice the special adaptations of these iu
contrast with insect-fei tilized plants.
There arc no bright colors te catch
the eye of insects, nor is there
any honey te attact them. The long
pendulous catkins aie set in motieu by the
taintest bicathef air and, and the pollen
is superabundant, mere . than a thousand
fold, lilliug the air se that each stigma is
sure te catch some. Infinitely mere pollen
is produced than is needed ; just as in
spi ing time there are mere blossoms en the
tiecs than can possibly be matured. Se
abundant is the pelleu developed by the
pine that the ground iu pine forests is
frequently covered with it, and carried off
by the wind, it falls at a distance, alarming
the ignorant with " sulphur rain." The
amount pieduced by the grasses fills the
air all about, producing what is called the
" hay fever." A single peony, according
te Darwin, produced 3,054,000 grains of
In the 7m the anthers are cxtrese and
discharge the pollen outward. Then, hew
can the pollen reach the stigma? Special
care seems te have been taken te prevent
it. Self fertilization is impossible. This
is hew it is done. In a cavity at the bottom
of the plant is a drop of necter. The at
tention of the insect is first caught by the
gay colors of the flower ; then it sucks the
nectar. Alighting en the flower he
brushes against the anther coming aud go
ing, catching en his back and head mere
or less of the pollen, which he scatters en
the stigma of the same flower or en the
one next visited. The result is an inter
change of pollen, but net always of the
same kind. This cress fertilizing or inter
change of pollen between different species
produces many hybrids, that is, a flower
between the parent plants, resembling
each in some respects but net perfectly
corresponding te either.
The various action of the stamen in the
Kalmia or Mountain Laurel is worthy of
attention. When the flowers open the
stamens with their anthers are emptied in
little pockets of the corolla, bending the
elastic Aliments away from the pistil. A
sudden jar freeing them, they spring for
ward toward the pistil, discharging their
pollen against the stigma through the two
little holes in the anthers.
After the reading of this paper, ques
tions that had been referred at the previ
ous meeting were answered by Walter
King, Edw. W. McCaskey and ethers.
The class then proceeded te the analysis of
the Spring Beauty, Clatonia Virginica, of
the Purslade family. The steps iu the for
mal analysis had been previously written
out en the blackboard by Mr. Burrows,
and each stage through the analytical
tables was made clear te the learner using
the text book. The flower is one of the
most beautiful of the early spring. It is
found in great profusion along the Cones Cenes
toga, and in many ether localities in the
vicinity of Lancaster.
The next meeting of the club will be
held en Friday evening, when the Pistil
will be the special subject presented. It
will be discussed in a paper by Dr. J. Har
Cheked te Death by a Tree.
On Friday last, near the town of Hunt
ington, L. I., Merris Bartow was engaged
in cutting down trees. A tree that he had
felled was partially upheld by an adjacent
tree, and Bartow, instead of cutting the
felled tree and laying it safely en the
ground, proceeded te cut down the tree
that upheld it. When he had cut part way
through it the weight of the ether tree
broke it off andinthe'descent of the first
tree Bartow was knocked down. The
blade of his axe became imbedded 'In the
MARCH 31, 1880..
earth, with his neck across the head and
the weight of the tree resting en the ether
side of his neck. He was unable te re
move the weight or help himself in any
way, and before he was discovered by a
boy, whom he hired te pile the weed, he
had been choked te death.
Dead Men's Opinions.
In the April number of the North Ameri
can Review Mr. Boutwell, whose finaucial
vagaries as secretary of the treasury are
net yet forgotten, undertakes te justify
the nomination of Gen. Grant te the presi
dency for a third terra. He takes Judge
Black very severely te task for urging that
the examples of Washington and Jeffersen
ought te be followed, and that ever sine e
their day opposition te a third presidential
term has become the unwritten law of the
republic. Upen this point Mr. Boutwell
"There has been a serious effort te es
tablish the preposition that what is called
the tradition of the fathers ' is as bind
ing en the country as if the re
striction were a part of the constitution
itself. The opinions of Washington and
Jeffersen are entitled te the higest con
siderations as opinions nothing mere. We
refuse te allow the bauds of dead men te
control the soil of the country, and shall
we without inquiry, without a judgment of
our own, permit the opinions of the dead
men te control the thought and policy of
the country?" As an argument, even
in this age of political partisan un
reason, we have rarely met with one
mere puerile than this by Mr. Boutwell.
What is the constitution of the United
States but the embodiment of the opinions
of dead men who, through that instru
ment, for nearly a century have controlled
the thought and policy of the country?
There was a time when the name of Wash
ington was held in reverence by men of all
political parties. Even new, New Eng
land school books strive te impress en their
youthful readers his patriotism, his integ
rity, his greatness, and his goodness. Con
gress has decreed that his birthday shall
be kept as a pnblic holiday. Washing
ton's opinion in respect te the propriety
of limiting the occupation of the presi
dential chair by the same incumbent te
two terms was concurred in by Jeffersen,
was adopted as their rule of action by all
subsequent presidents, and has received
the tacit indersement of the people from
that day te this. It has remained for Mr.
Boutwell te discover that his opinion is
entitled te no mere consideration than the
opinion of any ether dead man. "Tradi
tion " has often been held te be mere
sacred than the written law, and when
men like Mr. Boutwell begin te sneer at
" the tradition of the fathers, " ether men
may reasonably believe that the old
fashioned virtues of gratitude and patriot
ism are dying out.
A Newport (R. I.) correspondent writes :
" Will it occur te nobody te have a baby
show in Newport this summer? Such
babies as are te be here ! Babies with
European fathers and American mothers.

Jereme, of New Yerk, brings ever a new
