Professor 0. S. Fowler on Love,
Courtship, Selection and Mar
The true basis of love and selection
is similarity. Nature must keep ner j
genera and species npart. If the lion !
and the lnmb were to amalgamate,
their species would be spoiled. You
never knew much happiness to exist
between a white man at(d an Indian
squaw, because their tastes are so dif
ferent. The savage man should mar
ry the savage woman, the Turk should
marry a Turk, the Christian a Chris
tian, etc. Not only so, but the same
kind of Christian, the Baptist a Bap
tist, the Campbellite a Campbellitc,
and the Kniiw-Nothing n Know Noth
I appeal to you to know if, when you
love, you do not love some one in
sympathy with youT There are of
course some exceptions. You some
times Bee a long, lean, lank Mr. Stork
married to a thick, heavy, plump Miss
Partridge. Then you find the heavy,
courspgrained elephant married to the
fine, nervous and susceptible angel.
This is well, because her over-vitality
is exhausted by his powerful animal
nature, nnd their offspring is better
than they, This a point well worth
your consideration, for no sin is so
great as that of cursing your children
with poor bodies by an ill-advised mar
riage. Wherein you are medium in
any respect you may marry medium,
but wherein you are extreme in any
temperament or predisposition, marry
your opposite. If your hair is a bright
red, marry a black-haired woman. It
it is medium, you may marry a shade
darker, but if your hair curls, don't
marry a lady who has curls, unless
they can bo easily taken off. Laugh
ter. I thiuk I have made this so plum
who is, and who is not adapted to you,
and this is the most important problem
of your life.
Men ate always the poorest judges
of themselves. The conceited man is
the last to find out his conceit, and
the humble man the last to realize his
"Oh, wad some power the gifllegie us,
To see oursel's as others see us."
Phrenology teaches this: There is
nothing more valuable than a know
ledge of one's self.
To you, young men, I would saj,
ascertain whether or not your lady
love can make good bread, fur if she
can't, you will have to eat a great deul
of dough ; and if so, it will be no great
matter, for it will only be dough-heads
eating dough. Laughter. The plaiu
luct is that bread has to be baked, and
you call llrutv your inferences,
. . i
again, see to it that your lady-love is
healthy. There are two causes of tlie
female weaknesses of to-day. First,
fashionable habits; and here I would
say, girls, be healthy hrst, and then
just as tashiouable as you please. An
other is female boarding shuols. They
take our daughters aim pack them be
tween brick and mortar walls, and tell
thuiu they must nut rump or take exer
cise, because it is not ludy-iike, and
uiauy of theui aie hiciully euueuted
to death. The great wuui of Amen
cuu society is robust, healthy moineis,
and the lunger you live the truer you
will find this remark. The first ele
ment of a wife is womanliness, and the
first elemeut of a husband is manliness.
j With them, you have all ;
the ni, you have uothing. Youog ladies,
you may take it as a fixed fact that if
your beau is capable of mistreating
Ins washerwoman he will treat you the
Iu courtship, the first great error of
young tulks is that they court by the
quarter. They love here a little and
there a little, whereas the first law of
true love is periuautiicy. A may love
his wile ever so much, but if lie dallies
with other womau it will kill this love
tor the wile, or her love will kill the
other; it is impossible lor a man to
love two wotuen at the same time.
Now, wneii you whispered love to your
sweetheart, was it nut an exclusive
love? buppose a lover suys, Kui.', i
love you lor this, that or the other, but
I love LolU lit something else; what
dues Kate ay? Why, she tells him,
"Away with your love; I dou't want
it." Be careful when you begin to
love, and unless marriage is your ob
ject, do not continue it. Young tiinn,
don't dare to call out the affections of
a young lady unless you can make her
your wife. Her love is her life, and
you have no business with it unless she
is your prospective wife. It is danger
ous to think to trille with a girls affec
tions, and there is not so much fiction
about uroken hearts as you mny imag
ine. A lady, Mrs. Ayers, had two pidg-
eons which she kept iti one cnge with
only bars betwecu them, and when one
of them was taken away the other flew
about in prison in great distress, and I
finally fell dead, and a subsequent ex-
animation showed that its heart was
actually burst in twaiu. So of a young
lady who was disappointed in love.
She refused to marry, and lived a life
of devotion to her first love, though
she was years in recovering from the
chock o' her disappointment. At her
death she requested that a post mort
em examination be made, and that
post mortem showed that there had
been m actual sundering of the heart.
I tell you that broken hearts are not
eutirely figurative, but if they were,
you should not tr".fie with the aflections
of any one, and thus do them no wrong
which can never be remedied. But
you say.Professor I cannot be decently
polite to the ladies without being in
volved in a love affair. Well, I tell
yon, no young lady uader twenty-one
ever gave her love unsolicited f and
here I will tell you a story. A young
Hoosier once said to a Hoosieress, "Sal,
is there anybody courtin' you now?''
meaning thereby to iuvuire whether or
not his address were acceptable. And
Sal replied, "Well, Sam, there is one
fellow sorter courtin' and sorter not:
but I reekon it is more sorter not than
sorter" a much as to say, come on if
you like. Let me advise you not to
do your courting "kinder sorter,"
Whatever is worth doing at all is
worth doing well. Again, if you have
to marry the whole family iu order to
to get your sweetheart, let me tell you
that the old folks will inteifere, and I
advise you to open the doors and win
dows and tell them their room is better
than their company. By all means
stick to your wife. If, as is often the
case, there is a sister who is jealous of
the attentions which are given to the
wife, instead of the sister, and she in
terferes by pointing jut what she con
sidered u -Unit, and says your wife is
uot such a pink of perfection after all,
that sister deserves pitching out of a
second story window head first.
Parties emplyed at the mills and

that the good head of water flowing in
the river last evening hud been reduced
during the night by some mysterious
agency to l. ss than the slack supply of
midsummer, und, in fact, the water
power of the river was almost com
pletely lost for the time. Little or no
water was descending the river, and
the level above the first dum had fal

siderable body of water was pouring
over the top of the dam. aud the mill

water was perceptible, Uhero quite u

During the forenoon the river com
inenced to gather again slowly, but it
is still far below the natural level. No
satisfactory explanation has yet been
given of this rather startling occur
rence, which seems to threaten the
stability of the water power, which is
the great element of our business pros
perity. . Some people ascribe it a sud
den freezing up of the tributary
streams; others are speculating on the
probability of a quiet earthquake, in
some way brought about by tho total
eclipse of the sun which occurred this
morning.aud which, some philosophers
predicted, would be the cause of un
usual convulsions of mitur. But the
phenomenon is still unexplained.

lady consented, and the pair started
in the direction of the railroad depot.
While on the road tho young blood
proposed getting married before return

accordingly took the cars for Hornells

then informed the young lady that
had secured 'private' apartments for
themselves and wished to retire. But
she couldn't see it from where she was;
she politely told the gallant that she
guessed she would "be married a little
first!" The poor man begged aud
plead to postpone tho ceremony until
fiaylight, but it was no use alio would
bo married then and there or return
home on the next train," which left
within thirty miiiutes. ho rather thau
blast all his bright hopes and anticipa
tions, he was forced to toddle up town
and arouse a sleepy divine, and with
the assistance of a nu'iiber of boarders,
for witnesses, they were put in a condi
tion to take a private room. Then the
fair bride concluded she would rather
go home, und they accordingly "went" j
back to Warsaw, within an hour uf
ter they had arrived iu town.

A Fearftl Ride.
Frank Trask, a fireman, runifing on
the night freight train from the city of
Providence, had a most remarkable
escape from death on the 6th inst.
As the train was going on the down
grade, east from the summit of Bolton
Mountain he weut to the forward part
of the engine to oil the piston. The
oil is distributed better when the train
is co in 2 the fastest and he took this
pBrt of the road, wherctrain gets its
highest speed, to attend to it. By some
stidden motion of the locomotive he
lost his hold and was thrown forward
on to the cow catcher. Instead of
rolling off and being dashed to pieces,
ns'hp exyected,the pilot caught him by
a few threads in the Cardigan jacket
he had on, so that he was held fast
w ith his feet dragging upon the ground
ground though he was hanging'close
down, rod the least depression would
dash him to pieces. The engineer in
the meantime, had not discovered the
frightful position ef his assistant till,
' thinking that he was gone longer than
usual, he looked forward and there
saw his shadow, by the light of the
moon, ruuuiug a phantom race with
the iron horse. In an instant he whis-
tied down brakes, and the speed began
to slack ; but iu the sudden checking
ot the train, the tender threads of
Trask 's jacket broke and ho was hurl
ed to the ground, pitching over and
over; a:id yet he retained his self
possession, and when his associate ar
rived by his side he was ns clear-headed
as ever. He had noticed the alarm
for down brakes, aud felt that his posi
tion was discovered. He was taken to
Wilmantic and brought back to this
city. There were several cuts and
contusions on his legs and the lower
I1"1" f l'" body but nj fractures, nor
anything of a particularly dangerous
nature. Two or three months ago he
was on the same train coming from
Providence, when the engince ran into
a turn-table at Wilmantic, and then
had his arm broken, which was not en
tirely healed. He says if he had the
use of both arms he could have extri
cated himself, but being disabled made
his situation not only no re hazardous,
but his escape from death more miracu

A Magnetic Spring.
The Magnetic Spring recently open
ed on the ea'tcm shore of Luke Mich
is really quite a remarkable discovery,
and add to the list of mineral waters
a new kind, apparently far more po
tent than Vichy, Kissingen, Congr,
Katalysine or Welden. It was reach
ed accidentally, by men employed in
drilling a salt well ; at the depth of
two hundred and fifty feet they fetched
water of an entirely unique quality. It
holds, in solution. 400 Brains of com
mon salt to the gallon of water, be
sides the bi-carbonates of soda, lime
iron, maganese and magnesium, the
chlorides of potassium, cal.lum nnd
magnesium, the bromide of magnesium
and traces of silica, alumina and am
monia. Its magnetic powers are so
strong that a pocket knife left beneath
its current for a few minutes will be
mognciized to pick up tacks, while its
its buoyancy, when heated to 30 de
grees Fahrenheit, it very remarkable,
floating bathers readily, lis medical
qualities are of course- pulled up to tho
highest notch ; nnd undoubtedly they
are considerable. The place where the
spring was found is a lumber depot,
which, with the usual rapid growth of
western villages, numbers already 1500
inhabitaiiU.with five churches.an acad
emy, and an agricultural hall. One f
iu neculiarities is that acres of its area
are built out of sawdust.streels grmled
from two to four feet deep with this
material, and the chief hotel iu Spring
Lake is an old saw-mill transformed,
with bath rooms and nearly every
modern appurtenance. The owners of
the spring aie also building a hotel,
and Spring Lake is likely to become
the watering place of the West.
