A MAX WITH FIFTY CHILDREN.
Mr. Dasingninc, a prominent merchant from
Sochi Circle, Ga. reports a rcinirkable case of
vitality, which lie sa) si? well know 11 tu the peo
ple of his: county. Near Social Circle resides a
colored man named Harry Lackey who Ins,
probably more descendants than any lis. inj man.
He has been in this country so long that his tcs
timonyon this question is corrolxiratcd by his
ncigliliors. Harry is ninety j ear old, hale and
hearty, one of most industrious anil highly re
spected negroes in the country. The other day
he took unto himself a third vv ifc, Susan Phillips,
agul sixty-one. He already Ins fifty children
whom he acknowledges and who call him by
various terms of fdial affection. Several of his
children base died. In the presence of some
gentlemen the other day he named over inure
than 300 grandchildren and said there were
others whom he could not then remember. One
if his sonj has thirty living children. Several of
his sons count up more than a dozen children
each. The old man is proud of his record and
alwajs been an organized Democrat and is the
only negro in his militia district who votes in
the Democratc primary elections. lie sajs he
don't lliink his work is finished yet and has no
idea of suspending business soon. Atlantic
ARTESIAN WELLS IN OLDEN
M. dc Schitiatcff, a Russian explorer,
recently speaking before the llritish
Scientific Association, among other
points, puts this forward :
, " That the ancients knew the art of
procuring water by means of artesian
wells, and that Moses used it when lie
got water from the rock. What next ?
The pressing question of modern scien
tific applications in regard to light,
heat, electricity and motive force, were
well brought forward by master-hands."
Such suppositions arc about upon a
par with the theory of Mark Twain,
that the Prophet Elijah, when contend
ing with the Priests of liaal, employed
kerosene oil and a lucifer match to
consume the sacrifice.
MAN MULLER, ON THE IMPORT
ANCE OF A PROFESSORSHIP OF
CHINESE LANGUAGE, IN
" There are few of the great univer
sities of Europe without a chair for
that language which, from the very lie
ginning of history, as far as it is known
to us, seems always to have been
spoken by the largest number of human
beings I mean the Chinese. In Paris
we find not one, but two chairs for
Chinese, one for the ancient, another
for the modern language of that won
derful empire ; and if we consider the
light which a study of that curious form
ol human speech is intended to throw
on the nature and growth of language;
itve measure the importance of its
enormous literature by the materials
which it supplies to the student of an
cient religions, aud likewise to the his
torian who wishes to observe the earli
est rise of,the principal sciences anil
arts incountries beyond1 the influence
of Aryan and Semitic civilization, if,
lastly, we take into account the import
ant evidence which the Chinese lan
guage, reflecting, like a neer-fading
photograph, the earliest workings of the
human mind, is able to supply to the
student of psychology ami to the care
ful analyzer of the elements and laws
of thought, we should feel less inclined
to ignore or ridicule the claims of such
a language to a chair in our ancient

"Tm kindor lookin' around tho

as ho Btoppod at one- of tho (stands anil
nibblod at an onion. "I kinder need

"Wall, thoro ain't no profit In a hired

"What's tho roaaon?"
"Oh, a dozou reasons. First nnd
foremost, times hnvo changed, nnd tho
hired man has changed with 'cm. Ah I
sir, it makes mo sod when I think of tho
hired mon wo had before tho wnr groat
big follow win, tho strength of an ox
and tho vim of a locomotive I didn't
havo to holler my lungs out to git one of
'em out of bed at 3 o'clock in tho morn

to go to bed at 10 o'clock at night. I'm
afraid that wo shan't novcr sco no moro
hired men wnth keepin around for their
" That's sad."
"It's Bad, nnd more, too. Now, ns I
said, I want a hired man. I'm willing
to pity 811 or 812 a month for a smart
ono. Sorao farmers want a man to work
all tiny and all night, but that ain't mo.
I hnvo novor niked 0110 to git out of bed
before 3 o'clock never. I alius givo
my man threo-qtinrlora of nn hour at
noon, unless tho hogs git out, or cattle
brrak in, or a shower is coming up.
After a man has worked right along for
nino hours Iuh system wants at least
hnlf an hour to brnco up in. They don't
quit work on soma farms till 8 o'clock,
but I'm no Rtieh slave-driver. At half
pitst 7 I tell my man to knock off. All
hy lias to do after that is to feed tho
stouk, cut n littlo wood, mow somo grass
for tho horses, milk four cows, fill up
tho water-trough, start a smudgo in tho
smolco-hniiHu, and pull a few weeds in
tho garden. I never hired n man who
didn't grow fat on my work, and they
alius loft 1110 feeling that they hadn't
li.tlf earned their wages."
Ho stopped long enough to wipe a tear
from his oyoi, nnd thou went on:
" And now look at tho hired man of
to-day I Ilo wears white shirts and col
lars. Ho won't eat with a knifo. Ho
wants napkins when ho eats, and if wo
don't hang up n clean towel once a week
ho wipes cm his lumlkereher. C.ill him
nt 3 and ho gets up at G. Ho wants a
wholo hour at noon, and after supper ho
trots off to a singing-school or sits down
to a newspaper. Fiftvon years ago if
my hired man was sick for half n day I
could dock him. If ho died I could ttlio
out 11 month's wages for tho trouble Ho
was glad to git store-orders for his pay,
and he would wash in the ruin-barrel
and wipo on tho clothes-lino. There's
been n change, sir, an awful elinngo, nnd
if a roiietion don't set in pretty soon you
will witness thu downfall of agriculture
in this country."
"Thun you wpn't hire anothor?"
, " Wall, I can't just say. Work is
powerfully pressing, but I'm going slow.
Before I hire him I waut to know
whether ho's a man who'll p.tss hisplato
for moro meat ami tatcrs, and whether
we've got to uso starch in doing up his
shirts. The last man I hud took mo to
task for not holding family prayers
twice a day, and after I had dono bo I
found it was only a guiiui of his to beat
mo out ot half an hour a day. Ho

Tho whulo is tho largest fish that
swims in tho sea nnd It is probably tho
most useful. 11 U, of course, captured
for its oil, but there is a p tit of its body
which commorco hns made on extensive
use of to tho enrichment of many men.
In tho upper jaw of tho whulo are thin,
parallel lnrnlnie, varying in sizo from
three to twelve foot in length. Thono
nre called whalebone, nnd all above six
feet in length is called size bono, a
quality which commands tho highest
price. Whalobono onco brought a very
high price, especially when lioopskirts
were moro In fashion than they aro to
day. Tho Dutch formerly recoived
S3,fj00 for a ton of whalobonc, but sinco
17(i.'l it has nover brought anything liko
llmtprire. In 1818 it brought 8450 a
Ion, in 1831 from $r30 to 8M5, und 1811
it varied from 81,080 for Southern to
81,530 for Northern bone. As tho whalo
1 ecomes scareo of course whalobono will
riso in tho market, and at present tho
Dutch nnd tho Scotch whalers aro doing
a very poor business. Tho Americans
rlso couiplnin, nnd now that this is tho
ca.o tho inventive genius of man is try
ing haul to find tho best whalebouo.
This is obtained from Greenland whale,
l'rom tho inouth of one of thoso mon
sters fiom 2,000 to 3,000 pounds aro
often taken. The mnuufacturo of whide
l.ono into nrlieles of uso and ornament
is not so extensive as ono might imag
ine. It is principally confined to Now
York nnd Boston, four manufactories
being in tho former and throo in tho
latter. When the raw whalobono is
lirst received at tho factory tho hair is
cut off tho slabs. Thoy aro then soaked
in water until thoy aro soft, nftor which
they are scraped of all tho gum that ad
heres to them. Thoy aro next put in n
steam ox, whero a workman straight
ens them with a knifo ; thoy aro finally
polished, nnd aro then ready to bo mado
uso of for any pnrposo that tho dresser
m.vy seo fit. Whalobono is principally
used nowadays in tho manufacture of
whips' and corsets. Uinbrolla frames
used to bo mado altogether of whalo
bono, but sinco its scurcity and high
prico steel is mostly used for this pur
Itose. Whalobono hats and whalobono
libbonhave just como into vogue. Tho
former look very beautiful nnd aro very
comfortable on tho head. Whales, liko
se.ds, do not get time to grow, for thoy
aro slaughtered morcilassly, young and
old, in tho pursuit of wealth. Tho old
ones aro often killed before tho young
are nblo to tako euro of themselves, and
the result of this cruelty is a loss of
tlioUMUnU and thousands of whales and
beds in a year. Maukiud will havo to
be moro thoughtful in tho work of
