They were not believed, of course, and have been unmercifully guyed for soiling their clothes and wet ting their feet to save a man who will probably die in less than five years anyhow. At the city of Horse Prairie (we suppose it is a city) in Illinois, a child. while sleeping peaceably with its pa rents, was so operated upon by the teeth of rats that it has died.

Whcu we see a newspaper with this para graph in it, we feel that iis editor is one of Nature's noblenn n ! one who enn nevr, no tiever, bo bnueht bv British gold, nor silenced by British bayonets! one who will submit to be loru in pieces before he will bow down to the tyrants of Europe! one who will speak Ins mind it it overturns every tottering throne in the IM1 World, and hurls every crumbling dy nasty into everlasting oblivion 1 At present we uro feeling that way toward the editor of the Call. A physician in Kansas is entitled to honorable mention for personal clean' liness. The other evening he took a razor and made an excavation in the neck of his littlo girl. He then treat ed his wife the same way. These died. Our h tro then obtained a large pan, set it on the floor, lay down with his head in it and sawed asunder all that he coud get nt in his own neck. The pan caught all the blond, and both the floor and his raiment were unsullied. The body is said to have had the clean transparency of very young veal, but the head having lopped down into the, pan was considerably gummed up. We recommend in all similar cases the use of a small rack to sustain the pate when its guys and stays have been cut away. For the memory of the late John Hidd, of Illinois, wo entertain the liveliest contempt. Mr. Kidd recent ly dispatched himself with a firearm for the following reasons, set forth in a letter that he left behind : "Two years H20 I discovered that I was worthless. My great failings are insincerity of character and sly ugliness. Any one who watched me a little while would discover my unenviable nature." Now it is not that Mr. Kidd was worthless that we hold bis memory in reproba tion ; nor that he was insincere, nor sly, nor ugly. It is because possessing these qualities he was fool enough to think they disqualified him for the duties of life, or stood in the way of his being an ornament to society and an honor to his country. That's what makes us despise him. The women teachers in our High Schools have had the superhuman audacity to petition for an iuccrease of salary sufficient to make their re muneration equal to that of men per forming the same labor. We do not envy the mental condition of these teachers yet to learn that they ore fe mule in sex. Are they blind to the fact that their stature is considerably less than, tu.rs, end their muscles, as a rule, not so largely developed ; that they are beardless, nnd wear their hair long; that their flesh is no ft, apd in many cases even flabby? Let them onc6 realize these and all kindred anatomical difT-reuces, and then dare to assert that persons who are essriitial- nl unlike should be equal in salary. The Petition is prepo-terous are they. 1 hey might as we 1 nnd so try to draw out Leviathan with a hook, or bind A ret urns and his sons, ns con vince an enlightened Board of educa tional mules that there is any sense in their demi.nd.

Tea growing is now carried on in the varrioiis parts of the South with con siderable success. A gentleman in Wilmington, Nort'u Carolina, has sue-ecB-fiilly iaied plants and cured tea, which be claims cannot be exellcd in flavor by the imported article. lie obtained the plants from the. Agricul tural Bureau of the Patent Office, pre vious to the war, and their number hus increased every year, the latter plants being fully equal in every respect to those first grown. Successful exper iments have nlso recently been made in South Carolina and Tcnuessee. "We know a girl", says some ono.so indtMtrious, that.when she has nothing else to do she sits and knifs her brow." dare do our duty as we understand The Riga For False Diamonds. The badge of a Ring official is a ilianiond breastpin almost always i false. Only King leader, can afford to i Morning Pout in four days, and Gener wear real gcm. Yet every messenger, I al Christie made a similar assertion ; at 145 a month, who flirts about the I but is not known how far eithsr of new Court House and City lla'l, wears them verified this statement. Robert glittering jewels, which the uninitiated i Dillon could repeat in the morning and perhaps the wearers, believe to be real stones of considerable value. It is not uncommon to see diamonds or w hat purport to be such iu the ears of shop-girls and in the bosom-fronts of stable-boys. The consequence is that this class of jewelry, expensive when real ami gaudy when false, has been given np by tho msj rity of honest tolk, pearls beieg Worn" instead. Artificial diamonds are made of a peculiar glass called strass. This glass lies a priqierty of refracting light in the same way ns the diamond, and its iminuftcturd has been carried on to tuch perfection that an ordinary ob server cannot distinguish gems made of it from tho real diamonds. After a few years these diamonds tend to rrystalize, so that in tin years they bo come turbid and lose all their luster. These stones however, can always be distinguished by a practical lapidary by various tests, such as hardness and peculiarities in cutting. Diamonds are also imitated by a system called "plueksge," in which a very thin slab of diamond is cemented to some stone, such as quarts or white topaz. Other real stones, such as zircon and topaz, w hen they are colorless, or only slight ly colored, are passed off as diamonds. It is generally supposed that diamonds are white, but they are of all colors. False diamonds are made altuovt en tirely in Paris, Alaska and California diamonds are only quartz or rock quartz. The number of ftlse gems in use is immeise. l'rol. lggieston ot t.)lum bia College examined last year a larre gem, supposed to be a ruby, fora lead ing house here. He concluded from optical examination that it was glass. It came ostensibly from New Granada, and had been scut to Paris r.nd pro nounced real. In London suspicion was thrown on it. It was very per fect even the flaws were imitated. Tho Professor was shown in Paris last year a bill of 500 francs, paid by nn American lady, who is famous for her diaraouds, to a manufacturer of bogus gems. His opinion is that this lady has two real diamonds, and that the rest, which would be worth f 1,000,000 if real, could nil be bought for the 500 francs. The nmjority of diamonds in this country now, are used in mechan ical work. As there is a tariff of ten per cent, nn these goods, and as a great deal of smuggling is done in con sequence, there is no official account of the gems imported, and it is impossi ble t.) estimate the number now here. The above fucts about false dia monds, Ac, if generally known, would have the effect of diminishing the wearing by Americans the real dia monds, just as imitation gilt jewelery is now diminishing the use of real gold ornaments among people of good taste i c i ....i. : and refined culture, niuco it is evi dent that none but experts can dis cern between real and bogus gems, the real substantial citizens may very willingly leave the use of this Juhiou glitter to those of tho city's officials who needed a'l Hie polish that they can in auy way ucquire. V. '. Tri bune. The Bret Ilurte style of woman is appearing in France it seems. A For eign correspondent writes : "A Com mtinist woman was sentenced to lie shot. She was taken out aril ftation. ed against a wall, a largo crowd of street peoplo gathering around to wit ness the execution. Just as the soldeirs were about to fire, she raised her hands with the words, "Un inMaiil." The soldiers paused.

" John Kemble used to say thai lie could learn a 'whole nun:bir of the six columns ot a newspaper he had read over night. During tH repeal debates in the Hoiiss of Commons, thirty-seven years ngn.nne of the me n btrs wrote nut his speech, sent it to the newspapers, and repeated it tn the house in the evei.ing; it was found to be the same, verbatim, as that which he had written out. John Fuller, a land agent In Norfolk, could remem ber every word of a sermon, and write it out correctly after going home; this was tested by comparing his written account with the clergyman's manu script. Scaliger cculd repeat a hun dred verses or more alter hearing mem read a aincie Uma. ereuoca could repeat two thousand words on hearing tlicra once.

Cyrus, if some of the old historians are to be credited, could remember the name of every soldier in his whole ar my. There was a Corsican boy who could rohearw forty thousand words, whether Ben3c or nonomo,as they were dictated, r.nd then repent iheu in tho reversed order, without nskir.sr a sin gle mistake.

Virgil's "JSneid," and could remember the first line ind tho .a.-L line ou every page of tho particular edition which lie had been r.ocu toiued to lead before he became blind. One kind of retentive memory may be oonsidend as the result ot sheer herd wo, k, a determinatin.i tnvard one particular achievement, without refer ence either to. cultivation or to meuo ry oa other subiecis. This is frequently shown by persons iu huiublo life in re gard to the Bible. An old beggar laan et Stirling, know a some forty years ago ai Bliud Aleck, afforded an instance of this. He knew the whole of the Biole by heart; insomuch that, if a sentence were read to him he could name hook, chapter, and verse; or, if the book, chapter and verse were named, he could give the exact words. A gentlemen, to test liiu, repeated n verse, purposely making ona verbal in accuracy ; Aleck hesitated, named the place where the passage is to l3 found, but at the same time pointed ;tit the verbal error. The same gcr.itlci.mil asked him to repeat tho ninetieth . verse of the seventh chi'.pter of the i book of Numbers. Aleck aluiort in- ' ., ...i , stautly replied. "There is no s.icli verse ; that chapter has only eighty nine, verses." , . The following dm'njue on "sharp shooting" quietly took p!aco betweeu a Vigiuian and a Yankee pi' ket: "I say, can you fellows shoot?" "Wall, I reckon we can, some. Down in Mississippi v.e can knock a bumble bee off a thistle blow lit three hundred yards." "Oh, that ain't nothing to the way we shoot up in Vermont.

A presiding elder of the United" Brethern Church, while preaching, was much annoyed by persons talking and laughing. He paused, looked at the disturber., and said: "I am always afraid to reprove those who misbehave in church. In the early part of my ministry I made a great mistake. As I was preaching, a young man who sat just befor me was constantly laugh ing, talking and making uncouin grimaces, i paused ana anminister ed a servere rehuke. After the close of tha service one of the official mem bers came and said to me. "Brother .you made a great mistake. That voting man whom you reproved is an idiot. Since then I have always beea afraid to reprove those who misbehave in church lest i should repeat thai mis take, and reprove another id'ot." Dur ing the rest of service, at least, there was good order. A story is told of a certain man and his wife who were almost always quar reling. During their quarrels, their only child (a boy) was generally pres ent, nad, of course, heard many ot his father's expressions. One day, when the boy had been doing something wron?, tho mother, intending to chaB. tise him, called him, and Baid, "Come here, sir, what did you do that for?" the boy, complacently folding hia arms, urtl imitating his father's man ner, said, "Sea here, madam!

A fellow, in an oblivious siate, took up his lodging in the street.
