Arrest of Counterfeiters.
The Pittsburgh Chronicle, of TW ool.
says : One of the most important arrests of
wuutcneirerg wnicn nas oeen made in this
otaie was ellected in Erie on Monday,
mrough the efforts of Detectives Cooley
and V hitney of Erie. The arrest embraces
iork, and the seizure of $28,000 in coun-
teneit xreasury notes. Eor soma months
PAsr, tuis gang has been doing a thriving
business, and through their efforts the en
tire oil rcgious have been literally flooded
w"u counterieit money. Detectives Cooley
and hitney determined to discover the
wuereabouts ot the onnr and ; c..:ki

dressed a note by mail to the "chief." rirn-
posincr to purchase a considerable nnnntlft.
of the trash for the purpoj-e of "shoviug"
it in the Oil Regions. After soma nego
tiations the terms of sale were settled and
tne chief agreed to deliver the money by
express at JMie. Either from fear of de
tection or ot the failure of the promised re
mittances lor the "stuff," the "chief."
tguose name is w. sowles, concluded to
send the money by Thomas Hale, one of the
lu due time, Ha reached Erie, . and
immediately upon his arrival he was taken in
custody hy the detectives and lodged in jail
before he had time to destroy any of the
evidences of his guilt, or to commuuicate
with his friends. The detectives then ad
dressed a letter to Sowles, purporting to be
written by Hale,-informing hitn that he
(Hale) had been suddenly taken ill, and
had been unable .to deliver - the money.
The letter also referred to the impossibility
of secretins the monev. and lirc-pr?
Howies the necessity of immedate presence
in Erie to make the delivery of the monev
in person. This letter had the -desired ef
fect, as Sowles started for Erie on the first
train after its receipt. The train on which
the "chief had taken passage met with an
accident, and a number of persons were in
jured. lle; however, escaped unhurt, and
arrived in Erie after several hours deten
tion. Of course he was immediately arrest
ed and conveyed to jail to keep Hale com
pany. The letter ruse having-proved so success
ful the detectives determined to resort to it
again. They accordingly took advantage of
the accident to the train above referred to,
and proceeded at once to Buffalo. On their
arrival there they addressed a letter to the
three remaining members of the gang, pur
porting to have been written by Sowles, in
which they were informed that the "chief
had his leg broken by the accident to the
utiiu, uu Luat iiu was lying at a notei un
able to be moved. In addition to this in

detectives had the satisfaction of meeting
their men at the hotel named, and in a short
time alterward the counterfeiters were safe

Cooley and Whitney in their operations re

result of their operations was the arrest of
bowles and Hale, and three others, whose
names we aid not assertain, and the seizure

Dlt. BUSBY. Dr. Busbv. tha m.istAr of
W estminister schwl, was celebrated for se
vere discipline. Though a severe, he was
notan ill-natured man. It is related of him
that one day when the Doetof'was absent
from his study a boy found some plums in his
ciiuir, anu moved py nis itCKensnncss, oegan
to eat them, first, however, wairsrishlv ex-
clBiminff. L publish the banns ot matnmo
ny between my mouth and these plums. If
any here present know any just cause or im-.
pediment whv thev should not be united.
they are to declare it, or hereafter hold their
peace, and then ate them. But the Doc
tor had . overheard the proclamation, and
said nothintr until the next momur. when
causing the bov to brought up he grasped
the well-known instrum?nt-saving : "I pub
lish the banns of matrimony between this
rod and this boy. ; If any here present know
any just faute or impediment why they
'hould not be united, vou are to dec are it.
The boy himself cried out. "I forbid the
onnns.V .'m "For what reason?" inquired the
Doctor. "Because the parties are not a
greed,"said. the hoy. ..The. Doctor enjoyed
the validity of the objection urged by the
boy'g wit, and the ceremony was not per
formed. This is an instantce of Dr. Busby's
admiration of talent.
A Cincinnati merchant, on a trip down
the Mississippi river, writes home that the
out-cry about the disorganization of . labor,
and theunwilingness of thenogroes to work,
is caused by cotton planters and speculators,
who want to frighten away others from the
business in order to augment their own prof
its. Nevertheless, Northern men are rush
ing in, and there will be a great cotton crop
next year : . ' ' '
" Much was said during the. war about Mas
sachusetts filling up her quota of troops with
negroes and foreigners.' "It 'now officially
appears that ont . of 131,110. three years
men, furnished by- that State to the array
and navy 907 were foreigners, and 6,043 col
ored troops. nThe State shows out 13,492
above all calls.
Popular Fallacies.
That warm air must be impure, and that,
consequently, it is hurtful to sleep in a
comparatively warm room, is an error. A
warm room is as easily ventilated as a cool
one. The warm air of a close vehicle is less
injurious, be it ever so foul from crowding,
than to ride and sit still and feel uncomfor
tably cold for an hour. The worst that can
happen from a crowded conveyance is a faint
iug spell; while, from sitting even less than
an hour in a still, chilly atmosphere, has
induced attacks of pneumonia, that is, in
flammation of the lungs, which often prove
fatal in three or four days. It is always
positively injurious to sleep in a close room
where water freezes, because snr-h a Ip
of cold causes the neagtively poisonous car-
oonic acid gas or a sleeping-room to settle
near tl e floor, where it is breathed and re
breathed by the sleeper, and is capable of
producing typhoid lever in a few hours.
Hence, there is no advantage, and aln-.iM
danger especially to weakly persons, in
sleeping in an atmosphere colder than the
freezing point.
That it is necessarv to the nrnrmr ami ef
ficient ventilation of a room, even in warm
weather, that a window or door should be
left open: this is alwavs hazardous to th.
sick and couvalescent. Ouite as safe a plan
ot ventilation, and as efficient, is to keep a
lamp or a small fire burning in l he fire-place.
j uis creates a urait, and carries brfu airs and
gasses up the chimney.
That out-door exercise before brenlf:wr
is healthful, is also a mistake. From the
very nature of things, it is hurtful, especial
ly to persons ot. Wor health ; although the
very vigorous may practice it with impuni
ty. In winter the body is easily chilled
through and through unless tli Ktnm.nh
has been fortified with a good warm break
fast, and in warm weather, miasmatic and
malarious gasses and emanations speedily
act upon the empty and weak stomach in a
vay to vitiate the circulation and luduce fe
ver and ague, uiarahoee. and civsenforv.
Entire families, who have arranged to eat
renkfat before leaving the house and tn
take supper before . sundown, have had a
complete exemption from fever and ague,
while the whole cmmunuy around them
was suffering from it from having neglected
tnese precautions.
It is likewise an error to suppose that
whatever lessens cough is "good" for it,
and, if persevered in, will cure it. On the
contrary, all coughs are soonest cured by
prom umg and increasing them : because na
. . i i.i i
iure enacavors oy tne cough to help Pnng
up the phlegm and yellow matter which is
in the lungs, as the lungs can not heal whil
that matter is there. And as it cannot be
got rid oi wi.nout cougning. the more
i ..
coughing there is the sooner it is got
rid oi the sooner are the lungs clear

The Fashion of EeJ Hair.
A French writer, M. Jnlies Denizet, has
written an article in a Taria journal under
thef title of 'The Ilevenge of the lled-HeaJ-ed,'
in which he discusses a prevailing con
tinental fashion, and gives some interesting
information. Going back to Kmim in n.-
time of the Caesar, he reiniuds his country
nien that in those days the mad and the
bad among women were ordered by the edile
or, as M. Denizet sa; s, the prefect of po
lice of the period to wear red hair, lied
hair, then, was a mark of degradation, but
all this is changed now. M. Denizet says :
"The Romaiis got enormous quantities of
hair from Germany. Most of it in the pre
sent day comes also from Germany, as well
as from Brittany and Normandy, l'aris
annually exports upwards of UK,0)0 kilo
grams (about 200,000 pounds) to England
and America. A few years ago its prico
from a living head, was from five to teu
francs the kilogram, according to the length
and color. Bed hair, which" was formerly
unsaleable; except for dyeing, is this year at
a premium ; but the rage cannot last long.
Hair uf this color is generaHr conrso nmi
harsh ; and taste will no doubt 60on return
to black and blonde, which are twice as fine
and three times as soft and glossy. Rod
hair dries, black and blonde thicken. Tim
first preparation which hair undergoes im
mediately raises its price to eighty francs
the kilogram. . In ot;r time the" rehabilita
tion of the red-haired commenced in the
Muif Errant.' in which Eugene Sue depict
ed Mdle. de Cordoville in such glowing col
ors that, tor her charming sake, the hither
to despised shade rose a little in public
opinion. How many persons have we
known seeking by every means in their pow
er to turn the hated red into brown or chest
nut? Oils, pomades, brass and leaden
combs were the supposed remedies, and
these failing, dyes were resorted to,
"At school, the rel-haired boy or girl
was the butt for every joke, the scapegoat
for every mischievous trick and escapade.
If an inquiry was made as to the perpetra
tor of any offence, 'It was the rougiin,'
chorused the boys. 'It was the rouquine.,'
cried the girls 1 Children whose heads were
dressed in red lost their patronymic at
school, and were simply knewu as tha row
quia or the rouqiime. If, as was generally
the case, freckles were an accompaniment,
tje victim was said to 'bear the brand of
Judas' in his face ! What wonder then, if
with this treatment the red-haired child be
came sullen and disagreeable, and in some
sort merited the reputation given him be
forehand ' In the tale of 'The Fair One
with the Golden Hair' nojchild could ever
had immagincd the face of the beautiful
princess framed in red locks ! Her hair
must have been fine threads of real gold !
As to a red-haired princess, such a thing
was never hoard of! The fairy tale would
have lost all its inteitjst in the eyes of chil
dren had such a heroine been possible.
Cooks, even of this color were looked upon
with dislike. Mistresses pretending that
the peculiar odor of their hair lent itself un
pleasantly to the sauces, turned the milk,
and spoiled the jams !
"Now, all this" is changed ; red hair is the
mod;. The young mother nravs that her
coming babe, if a girl, icay have red locks,
and if it has, its fortune is made. The red
haired beauty is taking her revenge ; she
carries her chirnon like a flag, and gather-
nig unuer it, aiacu uy iasnion, everj' snade
of chestnut, blonde and black, transforms
them all into red. But toute passe, tout
I'txse; and to-morrow the mode may change.
However, although the triumph of the red-
haired may prove but that of a season
their glory but ephemeral still there is no
doubt that they will never descend to their
former disgraceful iosition. The prejudice
of ages havinz once been removed, thev
have been admitted to an equality with
their more favored sisters. But now a word
of advice and warning. Let them descend
a tew stops from the ladder they have climb
ed so triumphantly, less a speedy reaction
may precipitate them therefrom.'
