It is reckoned that tho daily sale of
flowers in I'uris realizes about f20,000.
The flowers mast in fashion at present
are the gardenia, which sells at #1
each flower; the lily of the valley,
worth $2 the pot; the queen rose and
the purple rose, the Spanish carnation
and the violet. Of the latter a large
number come from Nico; but they
have not the perfume of those grown
around Paris. Tho camelia, at one
time so much prized, is now quite out
of fashion.
When it comes to an international
eating match the American champion,
if he has the choice of weapons, will
doubtless be required to choose pies by
his confident but wily fellow-country
men. It is certain, however, that the
American champion will not bo Louis
Heinmitz, of St. Louis, for he failed in
attempt to eat fifteen pies within an
hour, on aw ager of $5 and the costs.
He began well, but became much dis
tressed at the tenth pie, and at twelve
pies and a half lost all control of his
stomach and retired.
T)iil any one of our readers ever
think how many steps the farmer takes
in a year? Take the simple planting
of a field of corn. Take a five-acre
field. To break it up would require
walking some forty miles; harrowing
it, ten miles; furrowing it, twenty
miles; planting, eleven miles if with a
planter, and if dropped by hand and
then covered, twenty miles. Thus it
will be seen that it takes 100 miles of
travel to put in a five-acre field of corn,
to say nothing of cultivating and har
vesting, and the going to aud from the
field while planting.

An interesting decision was made
recently by the attorney general of
M innesota. The son of Judge Farmer. I
of the si\th judicial district, was as
signed the task of delivering, on a cer
tain Friday.a declamation in the Spring
Valley high school. He comment el
an extract from one of Ingersoll's
speeches, and was told he must select
something else. Declining to do so lie
was expelled by the teaeher. The af
fair created a great deal of talk on ac
count of the standing of the boy's
family. The matter was referred to
the state superintendent, and he in
turn railed for a decision from the at
torney general. The derision was that
the expulsion was illegal.
The first American adhesive stamps
were issued by the United States in
1851 in denominations of 5 and 10
cents. Shortly afterward a second
serii-s was issued in 1. 3, 5. 10 and 12
cents. In 1857 this series was Increased
by the addition of a 24, a 30 and a De
cent stamp. A third issue appeared
In 1801, and in 1803 the first 2-eent
stamp made its apjiearanee—black,
with a head of Jackson. In 1800 the
15-eent stamp was introduced for for
eign postage. In IH7O a series of |cn i
square stamps of various devices ap
peared, but they were unpopular, and
a month later the present stamps were
brought out. The head of Washing
ton has always been upon the most
used denomination. It is now on the
3-eent stamp, and when that denomina
tion, as will soon be the case, shall pass
almost entirely out of use, the image
of Washington will supplant that of

Bankrupts have a hard time in Chi,
na. The North China Herald says
that the broker of the silk firm of the
Red Peacock chop of Shanghai, which
has suspended payment, was walking
on the street when ho was set upon
by a crowd of hankers, creditors of the
firm, who carried him off to a house
where they hung him up by the queue
8o that hi feet were off the ground,
and otherwise maltreated him. A for
eigner heard the disturbance, and in.
formed the police, some of whom w ere
sent to the house, where they found
the tnan still hanging, lie was taken
to the police station for protection, af
ter which a number of hankers repaired
there and clamored for him to Is- given
up to them. As appears to lie usual
in such cases, the hankers stated their
intention, if the man came into their
power, of biting him to death and eat
ing him afterward, and there is no
doubt they would have bitten their
debtor's servant severely had lie been
given into their hands.
The opponents of capital punish,
ment in France liavo been furnished
with a new weapon. The last time
that the guillotine was set up in I'uris
the criminal upon whom it was em
ployed was a youth named Menesclou
who murdered a little girl under cir
cumstances of appalling atrocity about
two years since. His conduct was so
abominable that even a Paris jury
could find no extenuating circumstance
for him, although it was admitted that
his intelligence was of tho lowest
order. When, however, he was dis
sected certain cerebral lesions were
brought to light, and those who wage
war against the guillotine declared
that he was not responsible for his
actions. This view has been greatly
strengthened by the fact that the con
vict's mother has become a lunatic. It
appears, moreover, that her sister is
also insane, and that her father com
mitted suicide. These revelations
have given a new impetus in France
to the endless controversy waged there
respecting mental unsoundness in re
lation to criminal impulse.
W. Sunday,M. A., D. D., professor of
the exegesis of the Holy Scriptures at
Oxford, is graciously pleased to speak
well of certain American accomplish
ments. "Clearness and exactitude,"
he says, "are qualities that seem t<> he
fast becoming national characteristics
in America, as our burly English stock
is toned down and refined by other
climatic and social influences. The line
precision of American mechanism lias
long been acknowledged. Scientific
transactions and observations (those
in astronomy, for instance) are pul
lishcd not only at lavish expense—that
may be taken as a matter of course
but with a delicate accuracy
which surpasses the best European
workmanship. Again, in classical
philology it appears that we arc going
to America for our best grammars and
dictionaries. And I can appeal to even
a wilier circle to eorrolmrate me when
1 r<-fer to the finish and delicacy of
American engraving. American th<-
i'l'igy is a rising si h ►•!. ami it is 1 icing

The wine production of California
is reported to lie steadily growing In
K-tl the vintage was alsiiit '.i/sKi/mo
gallons. In l w -2 it was estimated to
Ik* between 10/s >O,OOO and 11 .• *>, of*>
gallons. In France it was noticed
that the i xjmrtation of champagne
from that country to tin- United States
is seriously failing oil. It was 123,571
dozen Imttles during the fir-t six
months of I s-1, and only 104,755 dozen
during the corresponding six months
of 1 -22. This is attrihiitisl to the
substitution of California wines for
French wines, the California wines

tained in a communication from the
French minister of commerce to the
president of the Khcims rhnmlx r of

s imp inijiortisl articles, and very much
cheaper. California red and ahite
still wines are passing in the name way
for wines imported from France or
Germany. The California winegrow

him. gives the ulifomia wine a foreign
name for the purpose of finding a mar

The story of a wedding cake is thus
told by the Fornl du Lac < Wis.) Jour

the young couple are at all supcrsti
lions it may cloud with apprehension
the dream of their youthful lives:
"Alwuit twenty years ago occurred a

it was divided. The tin Imx, which

lie married. It w ill lc an amusing
sight w hen that Ik>x is solemnly brought

lated and the seal of yrars broken in

Rbstofi Is liecoming quite enthusias
tic over the foreign exhjKftWVri la-
held in that city next fall, opening on
September 1. The enterprise is unique
in some respects. It will consist of a
display of arts, products and manufac
tures. Commissioners have been at
work for many months past in almost
every foreign country, and with the
most encouraging results. A very full
exhibit of British, Irish, French, Hus
sion, (lerman, Italian and Spanish
products, both mechanical and artistic
is already assured. Japanese arts and
industries will also be very fully rep
resented, and so also w ill those of Per
sia, and tho Traneller asserts "it is cer
tain that tho exhibition will present
features both from tho orient and tho
Occident of an unique character, such
as never before have been scon in this
country, not even in the great centen
nial exhibition, vast and comprehen
sive as that was supposed to be. Per
sia had no exhibit, it will bo recalled,
at Philadelphia in 1870." Among tho
many novel attractions will be a col
lection of some ir.,000 newspapers,
representing tho journalism of over
100 different peoples and languages,
not a single American paper being in
cluded therein. Tho scheme is hacked
by an association of capitalists, and no
pains or expense will be spared in ef
forts to make it a grand success.
Statesmen in Bed.
A Spanish minister signalized bis ac
cession to power bv going straightway
to bed and staying there, Jest he should
be expected to do something. No
Fnglish minister ever adopted that ig
noble expedient to escape performing
his (lution, but Walpole relates that
William Pitt and the Duke of New
castle once held counsel together in
bed. Pitt had the gout, and, as was
his custom when so afflicted, lay under
a pile of hoi clothes in a lireless room.
Tho duke, who was terribly afraid
ot catching cold, first sat down upon
another bed, as the warmest place
available, drew bis legs into it as lie
grew colder, and at length fairly
lodged himself under the |M-I| clothes.
S< meliody coming in suddenly beheld
"the two ministers in bod at the two
ends of the room, while Pitt's long
nose and black beard, unshuved for
some time, added to the grotesque
nature of the scene." The Great
Commoner was abed and asleep w hen
Wyndham and others of his colleagues
bnr-t into his rootn and shook their
chief out of his slumbers to tell him
there was mutiny in the fleet, that tho
admiral was a prisoner on l*>ard his
own ship and in danger of death,
.sitting up in bed Pitt asked for pen
ink, and paper, and wrote: "If the ad
miral is not released, fire ujsin the ship
from the batteries," turned over on bis
pillow, and w as asleep again before bis
disturl>ers were well out of the room.
The ahmlow of death was upon Fox
when George Jackson came for in
structions before setting out for Ger
many, and followed so quickly on tho
heels of the servant announcing him
that Mrs. Fox had only time to slip
from her husband's side and take
refuge in a closet. The interview
proved longer than she expected or do
sirisl; and finding her signals of dis
tri-ss, in the shape of sundry little
coughs, all unheedisl, the imprisoned
ladv had no resource but to tap on the
closet panels and ask if the young gen
tleman was going, as she was perish
ing with cold. Looking at him with a
smile. Fox bale Jackson farewell for
ever, and released his shivering- wife

The Cashier Ahead.
A new bank which had been estale
lished in a town in Indiana had
engaged the services of a watchman
who came well recommended, but who
did not seem over-experienced. The
president therefore sent for him to post
him up a hit, and liegan:
".lames, this is your first job of this
kind, isn't it?"
"Yes, sir?"
"Your first duty must l>e to exerciso
"Ys, sir."
"He careful how strangers approach
"I will, sir."
"No stranger must be permitted to
enter the hank at night under any pre
text whatever."
"No. sir."
"And our cashier he is a good man,
honest, reliable and thoroughly trust
worthy, but it will be jour duty to
keep an eye on him."
"But it will lie hard to watch two
men and the hank at the same time,
"Two men—how?"
"Why, air, it was only yesterday that
the cashier called ine In for a talk,

The editor of the Dos Moines I{>(/in
ter publishes the following letter,
signed, W. A. Scott, M. !>.: In long
years gone by you published my cure
for diphtheria. It attracted wide
spread attention, and became known
as tho "Uujishr diphtheria cure," and
saved hundreds of lives, as thankful
letters received by me show. Tin
years of progress and thought have
brought better treatment, because not
so slow in action. I have lately re
ceived several letters asking for tin
treatment as published in the llrjtxUr,
their much treasured copies containing
the satin- hat ing been loaned, mislaid
or lost. I now give my improved
treatment, which can be bad at any
drug-store, and used by an) person
without danger. Take ten grains of
permanganate of potassium and mix
it Svith one ounce of cold water. A
soon as dissolved it must t- applied
with a rag or sponge iimp or swab t-i
the whitish places in the tonsils, and
other parts that have the diphtheria
membrane on. l>o tli s very gently,
but thoroughly, every three hours until

It does not give pain, but is rather
nauseous to the taste. If the tongue
is eoat<sl white I mix one drachm of
hyposulphite of soda and five drops "f
oil sassafras in four ounces of syrup
made of sugar and hot water, and gixe
a tea-H|M>onful every one to throe hours
as needed, when awake. If the
tongue is not ro.itM white I mix |
twenty drops of tincture of phyto- 1
].!• i a in four ounces of cold water, and
give a U-a-sjHHiriful every one to three '
hours a- needed, when awake. The |
Phytolacca is the < -mmon poke r•>t of '
the South, and as it loses its strength
by drying and age, the tincture should

less. It is well to apply a little swi-et
1 oil, or cosmoline, to the outside of the
throat to protect it from the action of j
the air, as the patient must be pro
tccti from all danger of getting
chilled. In the Ix-ginning of the
disease in inild canes, the al>ve solu
tion of permanganate of potassium is
all I use, and all that is needed, as the
disease is lorat"d at first, but rapidly
affects the whole system when seated.

False Perceptions.
The simplest forms of Insanity are
those which consist merely ot false
perceptions, and tlu-y are not of such a
charm-tor as to lessen the responsibili
ty of the individual. There an- two
forms of false perceptions illusions
and hallucinations. Uncomplicated
illusions are rare; still there Is no
doubt that there are illusions not the
results of disease In the organs of sense
or of circumstances unfavorable to ex
act perception, hut which arc due to a
morbid condition of the. perceptional
ganglia, and the unreal nature of
which is clearly recognized by the in
Illusions of sight often relate merely
to the size of objects. Thus, a young
lady who had overtasked herself at
school saw everything of enormous
size at which she looked. The head of
a person seemed to be several feet in
diameter, and little children looked
like giants. So far as her own ja-rson
was concerned there were no illusions.
Her hands appeared of the natural
size, but those of other people seemed
to be of enormous proportions. Hauv
ages refers to a case in which a young
woman, suffering from epilepsy, ha/1
the illusion <-f seeing objects greatly
magnified. A fly seemed to her to bi
as large as a chicken. In tin- case
which came under my observation,
the unreal character of the perception
was fully recognized, and li -m-e the in
tellect was not involved.
Morbid illusions of hearing, unac
companied by other evidences of men
tal derangement, are not very common.
One class only has come under mv ob
servation. It was that of a gentleman
to whom the ticking of a clock was r<-
si-1 vei| into articulate words. Gen/ r
ally the expressions were in the form
of commands. For instance, if at
dinner, they would he. "Eat y<urs uj.'"
"Drink no wine!" arid so on. One day
he made the discovery that, if he
closed v'ie right ear firmly, the illusion
diappea:ed; but, if the left ear were
dosed, t',p words were still distinctly
hearo. It was hence char that the
cent'-r f -r hearing on the right side
was the one affected, and that that on
the left side was normal. For a long
time this gi-ntleman r- .-t -i lar epting
any of these illusions ax facts, but
after a time b<- lx-gati t > be influenced
by them to the extent of regarding
tluin as guides. Eventually he put

i the directions they gave him. I'r.

Getting In and (tut of the Arm;.
Mothers and fathers are constantly
applying to the secretary ot war f- r
the discharge of their sons fr m the
army, says a Wa-hingt m < -irrc-qmnd*
ent. Secretary Lincoln has absolute
; JHIWIT in this matter. As a result be
! has to talk to a ilor.cn or two agonized
parents every day. As a general rule
■ they represent that their sons were nn-
I der the lawful age when they enlisted.
S If they ran prove tins their sons are
j discharged. When tbev can't they
complain that it is unjust to bold a
| young man to a contract which he
j concluded impulsively in a moment of
desperation. Sometimes it was the re-
I suit of money troubles, sometimes of
love troubles, and sometimes of family
I troubles. You would imagine, if you
heard all these tales, that this was the
i popular method of committing suicide.
Most of our j-nung soldiers ap|>ear to
have taken up arms because of a sea
of troubles. In almost every case the
voung man is just alout to desert. He
sees nothing Ix-fore him in the army
but the slavish, monotonous life of a
soldier without a cent and without a
future. He sees al>out him—if be is
in the West, as lie usually i splendid
possibiliths for a young man. They
| want to get out of the army. They
i want to get at the possibilities. So
! they write to their people in 'he East
, that they will desert unless they are
honorably discharged from the army
by a eertain day. Thereupon thebalf
i frantic mothers and fathers and uncles
| and aunts flock to the war department,
j The war department holds on like grim
! death to the few soldiers it has. The
i army grows smaller day by day. A
! year's desertions decimate it asabattle
! would. There are only 20,000 men in
all. They are dropping out by twos,
j threes, dozens every day. The fasci
nating recruiting agents do not charm
enough recruits to make up for the
losses. So the war department fights
for its soldiers as Its soldiers ought to
fight for It. When they desert they
are chased, if enough soldiers remain
in the garrison. If the deserters are
caught they are tried by court-martial
and sentenced to two years' imprison
ment at hard lalmr in the military prison
at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. At the
expiration of his term of imprisonment
he is dishonorably discharged from
the service of the United States. I
would advise young men to keep out
of the army until at least the army
grows letter. Perhaps it will never
grow Itetter unfas* they grow liettcr,
and unless more of them go into it.
It is estimated that 32,000,000 hu
