not nceccssary, when the rough again
caught hold of him and said, " Lend mo
five dollars." The stranger replied, " I
don't know you, and have not five dollars
nbout me." " Well," said the other,
" give me all you have." The gentleman
from Meehauiesburg said, " All right ;
I will ;" and with that drew back and
struck the would-be robber a blow under
tho chin that sent him reeling across the
alley, when his companion started off on
a ruu. Tho straugcr, thiuking he had
gone to bring his friends to attack him,

remain, and went into the European ho

his hand, accompanied by Mr. Davis,

A correspondent writes to the Fiffvro
as follows: Your correspondent, Adrien
Mark, in an article on the artit Bouvin,
relates that Baron James do Rothschild
once sat for a beggar to Ary Schelrcr.
This is perfectly true, and I writo to
complete the tale. While tho great fi
nancier, attired in the rags of a beggar
was in his place on the Estrade, I hap
pened to enter the studio of tho great
artist, whose friend I had the honor to be.
Tho Baron was so perfectly disguised
that I did not recognise him, and believ
ing that a veritable beggar was before
me, I went up to him and slipped a louis
infci his hand.
The pretended model took the coin
and put it into his pocket. Ten years
later I received at my residence an order
on tho office in the Rue Lafitte for ten
thousand francs, inclosed in the following
letter : " Sir You one day gave a louis
to Baron Rothschild in the studio of Ary
Schcffer. Ho lias employed it, and to
day sends you tho little capital with which
you intrusted him, together with its in
terest. A goodaetiun always brings good
fortune. Aaron James Do Rothschild."
On receipt of this order I sought the
millionaire, who proved to me from the
books before him that under his manage
ment my louis had actually fructified so
as to have swelled to tho large sum sent
Mountains on Fire.
Thousands of acres of woodland have
been burning in Ulster and Orange
counties, New York, for a week past.
The forests that cover tho Shawangunk
range have been destroyed. A single
one of the owners has lost, in tho burning
of 100 cords of cut wood anil growing
timber, $1800. Men arc fighting the
fires all along the range. The heavy
clouds of smoke that hover over the val
ley and cling to tho mountain side, and
tho lines of ilamo present a magnificent
spectacle. At Greenfield Briggsville,
and Oak Ridge the devastation has been
unprecedented. Persons interested in
tho huckleberry crop fire the woods to
promote the growth of tho berry, which
furnishes them a livelihood.
Bad Practice. You might as well
expect to relievo and cure an inflamed
eye by dusting irritating powders into it,
as to expect to subdue and cure Catarrh
which is an inflammation of the mu
cous membrane of the air passages in the

strong, caustic solutions. Dr. Sage's Ca
tarrh Remedy cures Catarrh by its mild,
soothing action, which subdues tho inflam

of the mucous follicles. Tho proprietor,
R. V. Pierce, M. 1)., of Buffalo, offers
$500 for a case of Catarrh that ho cannot

Accoiding to a Washington letter, the
following is tho method by which it is
" Bessamcr, or Beessemer, was a Prus
sian, who startled the manufacturing
world in 18o7 by discovering a new pro
cess of purifying pig iron and mukitig
bar iron and steel of it by asimplo pneu
matic process. He inclosed tho crude
liquid metal in a hugo ladle and blew
upon it a violent blast of hot air whoso
oxygen gurgled through tho molten iron
and carried off the carbon and other im
purities ; this produced fine metal, which
was-agaiu passed in a puddling furnace
with frequent nozzles on both sides
through which air and steam were both
driven, to carry off the remaining im
purities. Thirty-five minutes by this
process will convert the liquid pig metal
to steel, whereas the old method of ma
king steel was shiw primitive and labori

and as patents in Europe are not pro
