gar Some few years ago there was a
notary public in WashingtOn, an old
and highly-respected gentleman, who
had held his office through all the polit
ical twistings and turnings of our capi
tal for nearly twenty years. A young
friend was in his office one day, and
while sitting by the table •picked up a
small, old, leather covered book which,
upon being opened, pioved to be "Tbad
us of Warsaw." He casually remark
ed to Mr. Smith, the notary :
"I see you have a copy of Thaddeus
of Warsaw here."
- "Thaddeus of Warsaw l" Was the re
ply. "What do you mean 2"
"Why, this is a copy of it."
"Thaddeus df 'Warsaw !" exclaimed
the old gentleman. He snatched the
book, gave one glance at it, and then
cried out, "For twenty years I have
been swearing people on that book,
thinking it was a Bible ! All those
oaths ain't worth the paper they are
written on !"
That very day he patronized the Bible
Society Agency, and got a finely-bound
copy, which could by no possibility be
mistaken for a novel.
Cr Mr. Garnett Ronson, of Little
Corby, England, shot an extraordinary
match, for a wager, lately. The wager
was that he was to fire at and hit .nine
out of ten oranges thrown up in the air.
The conditions were that the gun and
oranges should be laid upon the ground,
and the shooter had, at each shot . , to
pick up an orange, throw it up, stoop
for his gun and fire at the orange in its
descent. Mr. Ronson notonly succeed
ed in winning the wager, but hit eleven
oranges in succession.

HOW BODIES ARE EMBATATFD.—By = 4/ .
balming, people generally are apt to im
agine that the modern process consists
of saturating, filling and surrounding the
dead body with spices. gums, and other
indestructible and preservative substan
ces, and is understood to have• been the
process practised by the ancients. Such
however, is not the case. The modern
process is about as follows : The blood
is drawn off through the juglar vein.
An incision is then made upon the inside
of the thigh, through which a chemical
liquid, is injected by mechanical means.
This liquid permeates all the veins and
arteries taking the place before occupi
ed by the blood, .and in a short time ren
ders the entire body as hard as stone,
and as rigid as a statue. A portion of
the scalp is removed and the brain
scooped out. The chest is opened, and
the heart, lungs and viscera are abstrac
ted. When the process is completed,
the body is reduced to a mere . empty
shell, having only the outward semblance
of the departed individual. How long
a body thus prepared, will remain un
changed we cannot say. The process
has only been emplo o yed for a few years
—since the war commenced, we believe
—so that time sufiicient has not elapsed
to teat the indestructability of bodies
. The late Rev. Zeb Twitchell was the
most noted Methodist minister in Ver
mont for shrewd, queer and laughable
sayings. In the pulpit he maintained
a suitable gravity of manner and expres
sion, but out of the pulpit he over-flow
ed with fun.
Occasionally he would, if emergency
seemed to require, introduce something
queer into the sermon for the sake of
arousing the flagging attention of his
hearers. It was he who originated the
great mosquitoes. Seeing that hie au
dience was getting sleepy, he paused in
his discourse and digressed as follows;
"Brethren, you hovel, any idea of the
sufferings of our missionaries in the new
settlements on account of the mosqui
toes. The mosquitoes in some of these
regions are enormous. A great many
of them will weigh a pound, and they
will get upon the logs and bark when
the missionaries are going along." By
this time all eyes and ears were wide
open, and he proceeded to finish his dis
course. The next day one of his heareri
called him to account for telling lies in
the pulpit. There never was a mosqui
to that would weigh a pound. "But I
didn't say one of them would weigh a
pound; I said a great many of them
would weigh a pound." "But you said
they barked at the missionaries." "No,
no, brother. I said they would get on
the logs and bark. if there was bajk
on the logs they couldn'tget on the logs
without getting on the bark."
Mr. Twitchell was a very skillful mu
sician, and excelled as a violinist. Be
fore he entered the ministry his services
were in great demand at balls, and were
always abundantly recompensed, After
he had preached awhile on a very small
salary, and that not paid without much
vexatious delay ; his clothing began to
be too dilapidated to appear respectable.
He called on the stewards for money,
but tiny neglected to furnish it. At
last he.called the attention of the con
gregation to the matter by a few remarks
on the subject. "Brethren, this was a
very nice coat when I got it, but you
see it is getting thin and threadbare.
I fiddled this coat on to my back, and if
I don't get some of my dues for preach
ing pretty soon, I shall fiddle another
one on." The money was forthcoming
before many days.
When Mr. Twitchell was presiding
elder on the "Springfield district," two
brothers were among the circuit preach
ers. To one of them he said, "George,
you can preach a great deal better than
Charles, but you will never be as popu
lar a preacher as he."—"Why not ?"
"Because you cannot say •how do you
do ?' so prettily."
There was once associated with Mr.
Twitchell, as his colleague, on a large
circuit, a young minister who bas since
become a somewhat prominent man in
the Methodist denomination. They
were passinga certain tivern.in Barnard,
when Mr. Twitchell said to his associate
in a confidential manner, "Brother 8.,
the last time I lodged in that tavern I
slept with the landlord's wife."
"What did you say "I" inquired Mr. 8.,
hardly daring to believe his own ears.
"I said that the last time I lodged in
that house I slept with the landlord's
There could be no mistake, and the
young minister's heart was sorely griev.
ed at the delinquency of a man whom he
had regarded with so much respect.
He pursued his way in silence and soon
left Mr. Twitchell and went to his own
house. But his sense of duty gave him
no rest, and in a day or two he went to
see Mr. Twitchell on the subject.
"I have come to see you,. brother
Twitchell," said be, "about that affair
at the tavern."
"Why, what is the trouble ?"
"Trouble enough I should think there
would be, for your conscience," said Mr.
"I don't think there was anything
wrong about it."
"Well, I do think there Was a great
"I've talked with the woman about it
since I saw you, and she doesn't think it
"Well, I shall expose you ; I am not
going to bide your wickedness. I shall
go right off and tell the official members,
and have you stopped from preaching ;"
and the excited young man was hurrying
away, to put the threat in execution
when Mr, Twitchell called after hi.. .
"Hold on a minute brother B. If •on
must expose me you must, but Cher: is
one circumstance that perhapsi o • ght
to mention, that may be some ex use

Consist of a terrier dog and stupid daugh
ter, both of whom engage his attention.
The former provided for, he determined
to "accomplish" his daughter. To this
end he went to the city. He bought a
piano, a harp, and a guitar, and a car
load of music books, and so forth, wind
ing np his business by engaging a first
class intellectual and music tutor, with
all of which he started for the "region."
The documents were of course soon ar
ranged for business. The tutor set to
work and toiled like a Trojan, but with
no success. Despairing of ultimate tri
umph, he went to the oil king and made
a clean breast of it.
"Why, what the world's the matter?"
sslted the father.
"Well," (insured the tutor; "Kitty
has a piano, amguitar, and harp, and
music, and books, and all that, but she
wants capacity—that's all."
"Well, by the Lord, Harry," cried
the oil king, "if that's all just buy it.
I've got the stuff, and if money will get it
she shall have capacity or anything else."
How TO GROW THIN.-A gentleman
named J. W. Towner, of Putnam coun
ty, N. Y., has been writing to the Car
mel Free Press how be reduced his
weight from 320 pounds to 214 pounds,
and is still getting lighter. He says he
had seen a statement in the papers that
eating nothing but meat would reduce a
person's flesh.* At first he thought it a
humbug, but then the thought occurring
to him that all animals which ate noth
ing but flesh were fall of muscle and not
of meat, be determined to try it. The
result was as stated above. He com
menced his diet by rejecting bread, bat
ter, cheese, potatoes, milk, tea, coffee,
sugar, &c., in short, everything that has
sugar and starch, and ate all kinds of
flesh, fish, and fowl, that the family made
use of; also such fruits and vegetables
as were without starch. He says his
health and strength are very much im
proved ; also, that after he had got set.
tled on his diet he has never been bun
gr-y as he used to be with a gnawing
sensation at the stomach, and hie food
always relishes. He has been trying

Tus SPONGE BUSINESS.—The sponge
business has become a prominent de
partment of industry. It is almost en
tirely the growth of the last twenty
years, and nets annually about $20,000.
The sponge is fished and raked from the
sandy bottom of the ocean, at the depth
of twenty, forty, or sixty feet. It belongs
to a very low order of animal life, organ
ization hardly being detected. When
first taken from the water it is black,
and becomes exceedingly offensive from
decomposition, It is so poisonous is
this condition that it almost blisters the
flesh it happens to touch. The firstpro
cess is to bury it in the sand, where it
remains for two or three weeks, in which
time the gelatinous animal matter is ab
sorbed and destroyed by the insects that
swarm in the sand. After being clean
ed, it is compressed and packed in bales
like cotton. The sponge has been ap
plied to a variety of new purposes, and
within the past few years has quadrupled

- sir A plain Old clergyman was once
applied to by a young man for advice
on a very important matter. He asked
which of two sisters he had best pay his
addressees to. One was very lovely in
her disposition, but not a professor of
religion. The other was a professing
Christian, but very ill-tempered, "Mar
ry the good tempered one, by all means,"
said the old gentleman. "The Spirit of
God can live where you can't."
