brands. In modernQreece the members of

Millet and herring are eaten on New
Tear's Day in Germany to insure abund
ance during the coming year. In Coventry,
England, the cattle are ted a sort or triangu
lar cake, made of flour mixed with mince
meat. In Germany a sickle is laid in the
manger to prevent witches from harmlne
the cattle, and in Esthonia an idol of straw
is put in the staoie to proieci me . -flax
is put on the spinning-wheels, but none
must be spun during the holidays.
Some of these notions are transferred to
TwellthDsy. In Hertfordshire,Eng.,12 fires
v:-i nne lin nooi'h to "barn the
old witch." and the farm lads sing and dance
about them to insure a crop. A very curi
ous ceremony is recorded as observed even
yet in parts of Ireland on this day. A
sieve full of oats is set up with a dozen
lighted candles in it, and another larger one
in the center. These typify the Savior and
the 12 apostles, the light of the -world. Fires
are then lit and the farm hands, led bv the
master, pledge the company in old cider
and form ft "circle abont the fires,
shouting and hallooing. After a
feast at the home all repair to the
stable, when the master fills a cup with
strong ale, and stands opposite to the
.tpntt(iT the company doing the same
with the other oxen. Their healths are then
pledged, and a large cake put on the horns
of the best ox by means of a hole in the
middle. He is then tickled to make him
shake bis head. If he throws the cake be
hind his hprns, it is the master's perquisite;
if in front, it belongs to the head herder.
Thev then return to the house and pass the
evening in singing songs. The toast dranfc
to the oxen is:

One of the most important things in be
ginning the New year is to meet with an
auspicious person the first time one goes
out. In many parts ot the world this first
foot is carefully attended to, and the belief
that it is unlucky to meet certain persons is
widespread and ancient The Eomans1 paid
great attention to this augury. The Emperor
ilaximns met a woman with disheveled
hair and mourning habit on issuing forth on
New Tear's morning, and deemed it an
omen of his approaching death. It is in
.nnio Vinnirht narticularlv unfortu
nate to meet a female. The ancient Scots, if
1 -- . t.-rafnntid Tnmin MOSS the Itad
ahead of them, seized her and drew blood
from her forehead as acnarm. Venetians i
think it ill-omened to meet a woman .first on
New Tear's Day, and.a priest was as un
lucky, being a messenger of death, while it
was a sign of proximate litigation to meet a
policeman. "Women and red-haired men
are not desirable first-comers in
many parts of England, and it is unlucky
to be wished a happy New Tew by such
persons. In neashire, black-haired per
sons were formerly rewarded lor making the
rounds ol the villages on this day, thus in
suring th luck of the household, and boys
are accustomed to turn an honest penny in
-Worcestershire by going abont the villages
early In the morning. In Cornwall, they
are given a gratuity for sanding the door
steps early, and it was formerly a custom in
Xondon to have chimney eeps make their
w..nn. thn an m to insure a male visitor
at an eatlyhour. It was thought more for
tunate if the visitor were a bachelor, and if
be brought a loaf of bread "with him. Toung
women carefully ascertained the name of the
first visitor, for that of their future spouse
I would be the same.
OBIOIK OP 1TEW TEAB'S CALLS.
It is probable that these superstitious
ideas with reference to the lnck of having
male visitors on New Tears' Day, gave rise
to the custom of visiting or calling on that
dav, now becoming obsolete.
Holiday revels were formerly prolonged
beyondNew Tear's Day, ending only with
Eniphany, or Twelfth Day (January 6).
fhU Hair, commemorated as the one on
which the star appeared to the wise men of
the East, had a goodly share ia the old
revels. Prominent among these was the
choice of the bean king. Cakes were then
made and in one of them a bean was buried.
Pieces were distributed, and he who got the
one containing the bean was chosen king
for the night. The custom gave rise to a
saying, "He has found the bean in the
cake," that is, has drawn a prize. The ori
gin of this custom probably dates -back to
Boman times when, at the least of the
Saturnalia, children drew lots with beans to
see who sbonld be king and queen of the
revels. Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night"
nmhihlr owes its name to this "Bean King
Festival," although the incidents of the
play are tacen irom an oiu lmuau mauuee
New Tears Day is not with all peoples,
the first day of January. This day was not
universally accepted as the first of the new
year until the sixteenth century. Some
day has, however, been celebrated as the
first of the year in all lands, usually with
some ceremony, such as those alluded to
above, or with some religious observance,
generally of a festal nature. The early
fathers of the church tried to make it a day
of fasting and mourning, but it was never
accepted as such. Xhe Jioman xew xear
was in March. The Chinese are particu
larly given to festivity on the day
celebrated by them as the beginning or the
New Tear's Eye, known as St. Sylvester's
Eve in the calendar, is observed with par
ticular ceremonies in many countries. In
Boman Catholic churches, a solemn Te
Deum is sung at the close of the year, and
"watch meetings" now take the place of the
festal celebration of the evening formerly,
prevalent in many countries. The old year
. wntehed ont and the new year greeted
in Germany and Scotland in this manner,
and congratulations, "Happv New Tear"
wishes. "Prosit New Jahr"-and similar
ceremonies observed. There is a peculiar
ceremony observed on some ships, of "turn

distance out of town and in the direction of

one corner olthe city, too near the eastern limits
of thetown tots, and on tbe bank of tbe Monon

vacant lot between it and Smlthfleld street
above. By this short description you can see
its situation upon the plan. But we are told that
It's no matter where the bank is located that,
the people will find it out and necessity will
compel them to go to it wherever it may be.
Now we humbly conceive that some considera
tion is dne to the convenience ot such members
as will necesarily have business with the office,

ARGUMENTS PRO AND CON.
It may not be Improper to mention that only
one member of tbe Board was absent when the
resolution was agreed to, but fAat gentleman
(Walter Forward, Esq.), we understand, would
have been with the minority.
After "what has been said, gentlemen, you
may, perhaps, expect something further from
us. We will then state to you our opinion of
things. Your present property nere is wen
enough situated, tnere can ue uu uuireuuu, m
that score the house and back buildings all
very substantial and well finished, and a lot
extending from Second to Third street, but
the bouse Is too small, too contracted, for the
purposes of the office and tor the accommoda
Son and convenience of tbe Cashier's family.
The greatest inconvenience arises from the
banking room being too smalLandthe Direct
ors having, when they meet, to occupy a room
which at other times is occupied by the family,
nor can the building be -well enlareed.
The first and most economical plan we can
sneeest would be to erect on tbe vacant end of
the same lot (on Third street) a substantial
one-story building sufficient for a banking
room and a room for tbe Directors, and leave
to the use of the Cashier's family the whole of
the present honse; this plan could be completed
In afew weeks for abont 6.0O0 dollars, tnclud-
ine the cost oi a new vaum uii 6"
attached. The next plan, which, perhaps,
would be more generally approved, would be
to purchase suitable ground and erect entire
new buildings, such as you should approve.
And a very central and convenient , lot is
offered by the owner (Thomas Held), 73 feet
front, extending from Second to Third street,
and midway between Market and Wood streets,
valued at $12,500. The buildings necessary
might be estimated at about an equal sum.
taking Into view a convenient dwelling house
and accommodations for the bank. But In the
event or yonr seuing yuui n"; "":?" "r
lot. you must not count, upon anything like the
sum It cost you.
Our apology, gentlemen, for obtruding upon
you this inofficial communication Is an anxiety
to prevent a material and incurable error, the
motives of which we are unwilling to arraign.
We are, gentlemen.
With the greatest respect
Yonr obedient humble servants,

YARIOUS F0EMS OP ANEMIA.
What Eminent Antfaorltlei Say About Blood
A condition of antemia, or lack of blood,
occurs in the course of many acute and
chronic diseases, and under such circum
stances is of importance only in connection
with the special disorder which it
accompanies. But what of the many
persons who are evidently "poor
blooded," and yet have no other
known physical innrmiiyi imswiiui""
Is seen In all degrees of severity, from the
simple anamia resulting from a slight
failure in the assimilation of food up to the
well-nigh incurable disease called pernl
cions antemia. A form of the disease called
chlorosis, or green-sickness, -which gets its
name from the sickly greenish hue of the
skin, is not unfreqnently seen; it occurs
espeoiallv in young women who have too
much indoor life and too little exercise.
Kairpmi theories have been orougnt in
ward bv eminent medical gentlemen to ex
plain the affectSo- One authority ascribes
it to the imperfect development of the heart
and blood making organs; another thinks
it is due to the inability of the formative
tissues to meet the demands of the growing
organism; still a third believes it to result
from a lack of iron in a form suit
able for assimilation. Sir Andrew
Clark, the (eminent London physician,
believes thatln the majority of cases the
whole trouble results from the absorption
into the system of poisonons alkaloids,
which are formed during the decomposition
of the contents of the digestive tract. It has
been calculated that sufficient poison is
(..n, tn tVm nrocessof decomposition in
the intestines of a healthy man during 24
hours to cause death, if retained and ab-
T nrn ftlka)oiAs ore mixed with the
blood, there is every opportunity for them
to exert their baleful Influence upon the
tissues into which they are carried. A lack
of attention to the Regular and complete
evacuation of the bowels is quite sufficient
to account not pnlyrforihis special series of
maladies, butfor maby slighter ailments,
and it has been' found that the surest method
of treatment in these cases Is such a course
of diet and laxatives as shall correct this

A DIT0BCB IN A CHURCH.
A Clergyman' Rnis to Kennlte an Un
The author of ".Reminiscences of a Liter
ary and Clerical Xife," himself a clergy
man, narrates an amusing anecdote which
his reverend grandfather used to tell about
an ignorant young couple in his parish. The
old minister had married them, but the mar
riage had turned out to be ill-advised, and
after a while things came to a desperate
The couple had vast, undefined ideas of
what a rector could do, and it entered into
their foolish minds that he might be aDie to
undo their unhappy marriage. So they
asked liim whether he could not take them
into church again and perform some service
that would set them iree, as they had been
before. The rector meditated for a moment.
"x"es,"he said, "I think if you come to
onnrrh T can nut vou in the way of becom
ing unmarried. But it is a curiSus kind of
business, and instead of coming to the altar;
as before, y&u will have to go into the bel
fry." The unfortunate pair readily assented,and
at an appointed hour went to the church,
where the rector marched them into,the
"Vnn oea taose two trestles." he began.
"The husband will have to stand on one of
them, and the wife on the other."
With mnch wonderment the man and
woman followed his instructions.
"Now each ot you take a bellrope in your
This was done.
"Now, then, tie the ropes round your
necks and jump off the trestles."
"Good lack, sirl" said one of them, "we
should be hanging ourselvesl" .
"Exactly," said the minister, "that is
just what I mean. The only way in which,
yon can unmarry yourselves in church is by
hanging yourselves m we ucuiy.
The young couple dropped the ropes in
haste, and the minister, proceeded to give
them a lecture upon mutual forbearance
and affection, it is to be hoped with, gooa re
sults. A BOLD LAND COMPANY.
