SATUIWA V, OCTOBER 9.
A FORLORN HOPE.
I ft was down at the docks bv the North
i Tlivor New York, where the streets a
j dinsy and narrow and wear a permanently
h .irk-nri look- wnere tne nouses are curi
ously jammed tojrether, clinging to one an-
. . . a art
other like irregular teetn. aeaiarmg men
stood talking in ctouds at the corners of the
crossings and beneath tne awnings on me
swfpwalls. Ererv rjair of trousers was more
or less daubed with tar, and the men bore
on their ruddy cheeks the kisses of the suns
of every cl:gie under high heaven.
Thews and sinews were to be seen there
toiling doggedly and perpetually! Steam
f-nn-inps of various forms and uses were
toiling also after their fashion hoisting
goods, pumping water, driving piles. Horses
were dragging enormous ioaas, caimiy, ns n
thev were nsed to the emrines.and cared less
than nothing about the noise. The workers
were pushing out groins and breastwork and
1 dims, which must have astonished
the river as they gradually forced it out of
its old landmark, tiere ana mere rnigm oc
observed thoughtful looking men, standing,
watching keenly and with contracted brows
the progress ot things.
Standing apart, with folded arms and
nrofoundlv discouraged sir. a vountr man
was likewise razing around him. He was
broad-shouldered, tall and muscular. He
had full blue eyes, a quantity of hair of a
tawny red, a large mouth out of which glit
tered a superb set of white teeth. Natural
ly his smile was constant, bright and jovial ;
hot now it was considerably overcast. He
walked up to the contractor with the air of
a man who had made up his mind to a last
ellort. , . :
Then there is no chance for me on the
job, Mr. Broadslip ? '
w as a a
1 guess not, lierthhelu.' . :
The other was silent.
Von see. continued BroadsliD. Podford

right place, Joe. But the man is in the
nlncp. nnil rirrht will not turn him out while
might keeps him in. It ain't my fault you
ain't fixed, Joe, and I'm real sorry. If I was
boss 1 d hx you right off.
I'm nKHrrpd- MrTlrnndsHn. T'll Sep vou
at Engledcll Sunday,' and Joe Berthfield
turned on his heel.
It was Sunday in Engledell and on the
Hudson the quaint old town of Engledell
that overlooks the North River from a snug
little aerie up in the rock-ribbed Palisades.
The cracked bell of the church was clanging
forth its open doors. .
It was an old church. The windows were
cob-webbed and dirty, with here and there
pane of stained glass in strange pattern.
These were distributed with perfect irregu
larity. These windows looked on the worn
gravestones where the forefathers oi those
who now stood there slept.
Long, tangled, sickly-looking crass twined
about the gravestones, and one or two were
ornamented with rose bushes and oyster
shells. Some trees of smoked, dried green
slowly crew and slowly decayed by the side
of the old church.
The bell rope hung into the body of the
building, and a stove reared itsunsightly
pipe in the centre, supported by iron bars
that radiated from it in every direction.
Just as the service commenced a pretty,
dark-eyed girl glided down the aisle, with a
rather conscience-stricken air, opened with
some difficulty one of the doors, and hid her
self immediately in one of the' pews, her
blushing face closely pressed against her
hands, which lay on the woodwork in front
of her, as she knelt down to say a short
prayer. . ;
1 he two behaved very well during the
services, taking only stealthy, innocent
glances at each other, and even then at long
But when the service was read and the
benediction said, the girl remained a little
longer than usual on her knees, and Joe' was
waiting for her when she arose. They walked
silently together out of the church and turn
ed into a broad walk, shaded with trees,
which le i down zijrzac: fashion to the river.
As they got further and farther away from
the departing congregation, Berthfield being
an enterprising youth in all he undertook,
possessed himself of her hand, and put his
face so close to her hat that she could not
choose but look at him. And he looked long,
but not apparently making himself the hap
pier for doing so, for at the conclusion he
gave a great sigh.
Hattie, darling he said, ' I've no good
news for you. I've been to the dock works
at the North River, and the position Broad
slip hoped to give me is rilled, and there's
no chance of another opening. They don't
want young, untried hands there, yet they
mirht have given me a trial."
But, Joe," said the girl, and he voice
altered as she spoke, you know what you
wish cannot be. You wish me to take the
chances of life. I cannot leave my father.
He is ageing sadly. I think his poor eyes
are growing dim, and now be would . rather
have all his beautiful music played to him
than to do it himself. Joe, my great hope
is that I may be able to take his pupils, for
Vou would do well, Hattie.' You haye
a wonderful knack of managing people.'
I he girl smiled, and in her smile there
was a peculiar mocking expression which
seemed like a ripple about the mouth. She
became grave again. - - j
He has worked for me, Joe ; it is fit that
should work tor him.'
But, if I could get work near, you need
not leave him, tjattie. We would marry
and all live together.' .
No, Joe ; we are too young to fetter our
selves with such uncertain prospects. Alone
we may struggle, and if we fall we fall
alone and drag down no other ; but were we
married and your employment so uncertain,
cares would come on ns more quickly than
we could meet them. Believe me, Joe, we
are best single." - - ;
1 here was no selfishness about the young
ellow yet, man-like, he could not forbear
the answer. e- - i
Hattie, you think more of, your, father
than you do of me. My young life' , j
He stopped abruDtlv. ' . .
I should be no good wife to you, Joe; if
I failed as a daughter. Do not press me
more. God knows I am sorely tried already,'
and the pent-up tears came at last.' ;
Then Berthfield inwardly called himself
many, many frightful names, of which Un
manly wTetch and Brute ' were the least
severe. r Bat he -said audibly, j .
1 know, Hattie. Forgive me.' - ' .' j
And tho words were scarcely . out of fiis
mouth before he was forgiven, for the warm,"
round, . white hand was again placed co'n-
fidingly in his... 3; . ,j . j ;i ., T . ; j
He continued, The worst is yet to come,
Hattie.' His words came slowly as if dragged
up by the roots. 1 have. undertaken to
work my way to Japan, and ' the captain) of
the steamer has promised to get me work as
soon as we arrive. I did hope to' have begun
higher up, but I've never shirked work, and ,
I'll show that I can do a good and ' earnest
day's work. ' I've toiled with dust and dirt
and oil and what not, and I'll do it again. '
; I know my trade thoroughly, the lowest as
well the hionesi pan oi u, ana ana i m
young and strong.' ;
Yes, it's all true ' said poor Hattie, and f
these four words were all she could say. 1
I shall not forget you, Hattie. It may j
be twenty years before we meet again, but '
even then I shall be yours only.'
Hattie smiled, but this time it was a poor,
worn, wan, struggling smile.
I shall be old and faded then, Joe.'
It does not matter, he returned with
loving gaze. You may be old and faded,
worn and shrivelled, but you will be more to
roe than any other woman.
A great mist seemed to have come over
the river, as the girl said :
We must part now, dear Joe. ,
They walked on silently for a . little time.
I said tomorrow, Hattie,' he said, as they
reached the old church. I'll bind you by
We have the world before us and God to
aid us, dear heart,' she replied.
They stood and gazed sadly on the grave
stones ; there seemed nothing but an atmo
sphere of dampness . and decay amongst
them, only the warm love and young hope
in their breasts,, but these triumphed even
in the sadness of the hour.
He held her in his arms for one last caress,1
and then released her. In another minute
he had gone.
And so they parted with wrung hearts,
fearing, as many iovers have feared, that the
hour-glass of time, or the scythe of Death,
would stand between them in this life.
And the river flowed onward to the sea.
Joe Berthfield returned to New York and
to the boarding house, where his worldly'
poods were . packed ready for transit, in a
depressed and remorseful state of mind. He1
. a. a '
was miserable enough, . heaven knows, and
though he bit his lips until the blood almost
came, and clenched his teeth, it was hard
work to keep the tears from starting. ,
It was in vain that he inwardly exhorted
himself not to feel this wringing pain in his
heart. Nature, not manhood, was upper
most. He . could not eat, but lighting a
cigar and repairing to his dingy room he
leant out of the window to enjoy his only
luxury that of thinking of Hattie Hadwin.
He folded his arms tightly across his breast,
thinking about her, and then he leant out
with some romantic Idea that the wind
would waft her breath to him, or that the
iii i lift
same moon snouia look aown upon ootn.
He had not naturally a genius for self-tor
ment, quite the reverse ; but a man in love
will do such things. '
In his mind's eye he beheld her as his
wife, and he saw her fretted and worn,
struggling for her father with adverse cir
cumstances, and sinking quietly but surely
while his arm would be far from her. i
Within ten hours from that time Joe
Berthfield -was engaged at seaman's wages
to work under the engineer of the steamship
Yeddo. At nine o clock he had passed
through the Narrows.
If his heart was heavy his spirit was good,
his belief in Hattie's ' faithfulness, although
no vows had been registered, very consider
able ; his belief in his own, amazingly firm:
4 Success is certain till energy fails,' said
Joe, as he commenced to dump a lot of coal
through a stokehole.
It was perhaps ten vears after this that a
lady, richly clad in silk and furs, walked up
ruth Avenue, New York, one bright, crisp
winter's day. She carried a small roll of
music under her cloak, and stopped at one
of, the large palatial houses that face the
She rang the bell and was quickly ad
mitted into the magnificient parlor. She
opened her music, laid aside her wrappings,
and taking a short peep into a superb pier
glass, set in ebony frame, revealed the face
of Hattie Hadwin. ...
TalL gay, handsome and careless, with a
bewitching drollery about the mouth, and a
rather masterful eye. ' '
Presently the door was opened, and a tall
and wilful looking girl, with a pair of flash
ing blue eyes, aimost ran in.. . bhe would
hare embraced Hattie on the spot, but the
latter drowned the effort in her own signifi
cant way ; she laid her hand on the young
lady's shoulders, saying--
Well, Julie, how is the voice, and how
have you prospered with the song? ' ,
Oh, Miss Hattie, papa says 1 am hoarse I

Hattie Hadwin had the knack of making
herself particularly charming to her pupils,
who all adored her after the fashion of young
Miss Julie Van Zutphen .was no exception
to the rule, so the two sat down and pro
ceed very amiably for some time. At last
the fantasy seized Hattie that Miss Van
Zutphen should repeat a certain passage, a
given number of-times as a penalty for the
ailing short of the mode of performing it
The young girl's spirit did not bear the
burden very meekly first, her wide arose :
then mortification did battle with pride, and
lastly, the spirit of sullenness descended and
utterly paralyzed Miss Van Zutphen's vocal
A dreaded pause ensued. Hattie, smiling
to herself as the altered intonation 1 fell upon
her ear, turned round and met such a full
blaze of indignation on the pretty face as
made her smile a good deal more.
She then commenced the song herself
. ' A crimson rosebud Into beauty breaking,
., : A band outatretched to pluck It era It fall ;
An hour of triumph, and a aad forsaking ; -
And then, a withered rose-leaf that is all.
" A maiden's heart that knoweth not love's darting
A voice that teaches lore beyond recall, "
. An bow of joy, an hour of bitter parting ; 1
And then a broken heart and that is ail." . .
She sang it deliciously, and in so doing
onrof. or seemed to tonret her surrounding.
The invincible spirit of music spoke to her
of other things, and as her nngers wandered
over the keys, her: face grew very, wistful,
almost sad, and she no longer remembered
even to tease : Miss Van Zutphen, who was
affected like Saul, in so far that the mutinous
demon was in some sort charmed out of her,
and she was pondering how she might best
descend from a pedestal of pride, and make
submission , to Hattie without losing her
dignity. . ri . -. . . r ; .
The song was finished, and both came
back to realities. . "
.. Hattie did not care about conquering her
self, but was wondrously fond of conquering
other people.' So she devoted an instant to
Miss Van Zutphen, and having ascertained
by an- almost imperceptible glance that
young lady's state of mind, she proceeded to
apply , the actual remedy.. She took , the.
song and gave it to her, saying, very sadly z
Until to-day -1 always sang that song
with 'pleasure, Julie, but you have joined to
it a less pleasant memory. I hope you will
like it better from this moment than I shall.
And she bent over the song, and wrote on
the margin - with her pencil the single word

but said never a. word, j , , . : f ,
' Hattie ' gave two more lessons on the
avenue, and thea walked quickly home.1

She was the fashion. Society liked her,
her splendid voice, her gracious manner, her;
habits and her rich neutral tinted toilets, t ;
No tidings from ' Berthfield had..r ever;
reached her, yet,' in' spite of it, she "grew to'
appear handsomer and stouter ; she was not
aweary because he came not, and indeed,'
presented no resemblance to the-" Marian of
the Moated Grange."
Ten years from the time I last portrayed
her she entered her fortieth year. It was a
winter's evening. There had been a driving,
storm of "sleet and snowwith a keen, bitter
wind.' ' ; ; ; -' :
The foot passengers on the sidewalks were
whipped, blinded and at last roused by it,
the drivers of horse-cars disappeared behind
the mountains of wraps, and the homeless
poor betook themselves to alleys and door
ways for shelter. The sky was stern and
lowering, and plainly informed those who
consulted : it that there was - worse yet to
I do not think any one could look more
comfortable or handsomer than Hattie Had
win as she sat making the hot coffee in the
anug study, clad in rich garment of sombre
hue, but of exquisite workmanship and
finish. Her father, still alive, was seated in
the self-same chair.' His head ' was v very
white and quite' bowed on his breast," and

ana then, ana they were caressing ana sucn
as might have been nsed to a child.
At last she settled herselt in her own
lounging chair, and, opening a new book
was soon deep in it. Gradually the new
lxok found its resting place on the floor, and
Hattie reposed calmly. "'"
There was a rumblinp- of hack' wheels
close to the sidewalk, and then a halt. " But
there was no magnetism in the air to . warn
Hattie or any one being- near her more than
that centle, shadowy: man which she , had
tendered for so many years.
Then footsteps in the hall and a hand on
the door. . .: i
Even the seven sleepers awakened at last;
and when the door opened Hattie started to
her feet, fully prepared to deny that she had
been otherwise than awake.
Then came a face, bronzed, fiery red, full
blue eyes, and altogether strange to Hattie
at least, she had seen such in her dreams.
A mass of hair, ' beard, moustache 'and
whiskers of a hue which was pale only be
side his lace. All this surmounted , a figure
huge in every way, but especially in breadth.
. Hattie stood wondering, and the figure
stood wondering' also. Like ' the Ancient
Mariner, he" fixed her with his glittering
eye, and as he performed the operation, he
drew off wrapping, and at length stood con
fessed as Joe Berthfield, weighing at the
very least 220 ponnds.
Then the blue eyes danced with amuse
ment, the white teeth showed themselves,
and a hearty, full, sonorous laugh broke the
Hattie, do you know me ? He stepped
forward and kissed her, at first likely-on the
cheeks, and then, putting her back with
another glance and another laugh, he fol
lowed up that kiss by many others, and they
came so fast and warm that Hattie bad not
presence of mind, to resist.'
1 understand that you are still Hattie
Hadwin, or you would not have seen me
here to-night. So this is your father.' , ..
She led him up to the old man gently.
' opeak tenderly , to him Joe., tie is
quite childish now.' . Something in the sub
dued, womanly tone of Hattie's voice gave
Uerthfield a choking sensation. , However,
he cleared his throat and shook, hands with
Mr. Hadwin. , ,... . ;
The poor gentleman looked up with his
wan comprehensive smile.
, You'll be kind to Hattie you'll be kind
to her ? ' and then he rattled on incoherent-
Hattie had not forgotten how to blush,
and at the' random speech of her father the
blood rushed up in torrents to: her hair
roots, leaving a transient crimson on her
throat and neck.
( Apparently this enchanted Joe, for he
rubbed his hair . and tugged at his , tawny
beard, and sat down and watched Hattie as
she poured out coffee for him,' with the
bright, cheerful and trusting look of twenty
years oeiore. ,
4 Ah, Hattie, he continued,:iaughingly; 1
swore tnat were you laded, worn and
shrivelled, I would still be true ; but you
have not fretted for me, you have not the
assurance to pretend it. ' 11 Am I absolved
from my oath?'
Hattie raised her eyes with a malicious
glance, signifying . Et tu brute,'.
Yes, I know,' he added, surveying rather
ruelully his ample ' person, we have both
much to foregive.' '' : -' ' -
There was no explanation asked, for none
was required they both felt supremely
happy. They had each done their duty, not
sadly and sternly, but merrily and well.
, Talmage on the Chinese:
Kev. De Witt Talmage took for his text
on the 19th ult. at, the Brooklyn Tabernacle,
ijuke A ch. zUth. verse, " Who is my neigh
borT" Ihe building '. was crammed. sHe
said while he was 'in California, in August
last, he ( was escorted by five San - Fran,
ciscans of high social distinction ! through
the Chinese quarters in that city, and they
set the' most repulsive features of the same
before him, for they were all hostile to Chi
nese immigration. . " Jiut when he subse
2uently addressed ban frrancisco in her
Irand Opera House, he told her frankly
. a SkT ra
tnat unaergrouna mew-- iomc is nity per
cent, more unsavory and hideous than the Chi
nese quarter of San Francisco, and that the
300 police officers in that city may, if San
Francisco wills it, extirpate; the evils there
in a single night. lalmage then met and
refuted in his own way all the arguments
against Chinese immigration. It is objected,
he said, that the Chinese don't spend their
money where they make it' I reply. that in
San Francisco the Chinese pay $2,400,000
in taxes annually, and are yet afforded none
of the benefits of city government, and that
they pay $4,000,000 annually to the State
of California, and to the United States Gov
ernment an annual tax of $9,400,000., If
they sent home all their earnings c in the
United States could you blame them? How
much money . .would vou leave in a, country
in .which, you yrere.-liable At any .moment to

Hattie was fast growing rich. Work was
a law and necessity, but she did her work
held, and wear peculiar dress.

Washington, Benjamin ranklm and John
Hancock wore it. The American costume
often more than eclipses Chinese wearing

was not surprised at finding it in the plat
form of the Democratic party, because the
Democrats have always considered the ques
tion of color and .race a reasonable question.
But when I saw the Republican party,
.which had fought four horrible years of war
for the sake of establishing the principle that
all colors and races are equal before God,
and then remembered that they had paid
500,000 precious human lives as the pur
chase price of that principle, and then sur
rendered for the yellow ' man what they had
demanded for the black man, I was amazed,'
and I wondered whether the sceptre had de
parted.' If our Government is to continue to
stand, it will be ' because it defends alike the
joss-houses of the Chinese, the temples of
the Roman Catholics, the meeting-houses of
the Quakers, and the churches of the Pres
byterians. If I am to choose between the
religion which insults and stones man be
cause of the color of his skin and the length
of his hair, and the industry and economy of
his habits, on one hand, and the paganism
which patiently bears all this, toiling right
on until death comes if I must choose be
tween such religion and paganism, give me
paganism. In closing, Talmage said this is
a question higher than your City Hall;
higher than the heathen goddess on the
Capitol in Washington City, so high that it
is on a level with the Throne of God. And
the same power that controls the tides of the
Atlantic and the Pacific oceans will control
the tide of human navigation. If God says,
" Come,' they will come ; if He says, "Go,"
they will go. Do not be nervous and build a
high, strong wall that will keep the Chinese
out while vou let others in. Such a wall
God's earthquake would shake from beneath,
and God's thunder-bolts of wrath would
strike 'from above,' and it would rock and
heave and fall on the demagogues who con
structed it and the nation that favored it,
and .the Christianity that was too cowardly
to denounce it, and God would say,." 1 built
that American Temple for civil and religious
liberty. I founded it in the blood of the
Revolutionary fathers. . The arches of that
temple went up on the shoulders of men
who died for their principles. Its baptismal
fonts were filled with the tears of exiles who
had come here to refuge. The sword of a
patriot ancestry was the trowel which mor
ticed its foundations. But you have sacri
ficed on its sacred altars the swine of pas
sion and hate. Its columns have been de
faced by unholy hands, and the temple must
come down, column ' and capital, arch and
dome,' and in some other land and among a
more generous people! and a brighter age
of the world, I will demonstrate before earth
and heaven, how I would have all men equal
The closing hymn was, , Jesus shall
reign where'er the sun doth his successive
journeys run." - ; '
. . . m The Jersey at Saratoga.
The dressing this season at Saratoga is
more extensive than it has been during any
season for the last ten" years. ' The number
of $400 dresses that line the balcony at 6 in
the evening amazes me. The favorite over
dress is the tight-fitting imitation Jersey
waist, made lrorn heavy satin or brocade.
Old gold is the predominating color. There
are several real Jersey waists here, fash
ioned after Mrs. Langtry's pattern. When
they make their appearance they invariably
make a hubbub.
" There she goes there " I heard seve
ral ladies whisper, yesterday, as a magnifi
ciently , formed woman sauntered up the
United States balcony.
Who where?" . .
"Why, the Jersey waist the real Jer
sey! " -;i ' ' ' "r-'c' '" '
" I followed the Jersey woman with my
eye. ,." The . waist did fit superbly. The
woman s figure, was perfect as the torso of
Milo. Every line was rounded. Stand the
woman on a pedestal and whitewash her,
and she would pass for the Venus de Medici.
She was a walking statute. No wrinkles
about the arms, but one smooth surface.
" How do they put on this Jersey '"? I
asked a fashionable Fifth avenue lady.
" Oh, right over the head. It's knitted of
silk like a pair of silk mits, and is as elastic
as a silk stocking. But, oh, don't it bring
tjut the arm and shoulders though ! "
And are there no stays or or 7 1
Oh yes, there are small tight-fitting cor-
under it. but the Jersey hugs the arras
neck. There isn't a seam in it, nor
a button or a lapel on it."
" The old lavender, which has only been
worn by the beautiful Jewesses for the last
ten years, is now the favorite color. It in
cludes lavender ribbons, lavender flowers,
lavender stockings, and lavender gloves.
One toilet of Irish erreen has been seen at
the State this summer. The ladies say that
me 01a lrisn green wnicu iias ueeu wwu u
the servant girls for the last ten years is to
come next. The tawdry red and the faded
out yellow and blue such colors as we find
in old Mosque rugs are the next shades.
They are called the art colors. They go
with the Jersey waist: . ; . :
lhere is no walking by the ladies in
Saratoga this season. The present high
heels have ruined the spines of nine out
of ten fashionable ladies, and they are not
able to walk. So the principal amusement
is to sit. round, gossip, and watch the
children. New York Sun.
ExPKRIMKXTS WITH THE TCKRIPH BATHS. Some
intf renting observations were related at the meet
ing of the British Medical Association, bv Wm.
Jus. Fleming. M. D.. Glaneow. These experiments
were performed by the author upon himself, and
consisted of observations in the effect of tbe Turk
ish bath at temperatures of from 130 Fab. to
170 Fab. Boon the weight, temperature, pulse, res
piration and secretions, Tbe results showed that
immersion of the bodv iu hot. dry air produced
lost of weight, to an extent considerably greater
than . normal, amounting, on tbe average, to tbe
rate of above forte ounces per hour. This waa ac
companied by an increase in the temperature or
tbe body, and a rise in the uulse rate with, at first
a fall and then a rise in the raoiditv of respiration.
Tbe amonntof solid secreted by the kidawya waa
increased, and coincident!? the amount oi urea.

Ikterestevg AsTiqvmti. The Pall Mall (7a
zetle's correspondent at Copenhagen writes: "An
interesting and probably unique discovery has
been made close ta the town of Banders, in Jut
land, ol a grave, dating probably from l lie sixth
or feventb century, containing tlie remain of a
woman who liad been buried in her licheet attire,
it beine ft ill possible to trace the drtcn. which
had been interwoven with gold thread. Across
the chest were laid two bands with a kind of gold
lace, on the top of which again were laid some
ornaments composed of colored glass bend, some
having an outer shell of gold leaf, and several cut '
like diamonds, as well aa a small erforated silver
coin. To the left of the body was found a knife,
a pair of scissors, a small whetstone for needles, '
and a small glass cup, which was broken in pieces.
In the tomb was also found the remains of a
wooden pail with iron bands, which had contained '
the food supposed necessary to support the de- j
ceased on ber joarnej to llades. This discovery
affords another proof -of the exceptionally high'!
Sosition occupied by the women in Scandinavia,
uring heathen times in comparison with nearly !
all other heathen countries. The body bad evi
dently, originally, been enclosed in a coffin of :
rough oaken planks. Great interest is taken in j
the scientific examination of the silver coin, by !
which the actual period may be at least approx-, j
imately ascertained. :
What a Coin Did. A coin is in itself a history.
There was once a lost city which owes its place to
a coin. For over a thousand years no one knew
where Pandosia was. Ilietory told us that at
Pandosia, King Pyrrhue collected those forces
with which be overran Italy, and that he estab
lished a mint there; but no one could put their
fin ger on Pandosia. Eight years ago a coin came
nnder the sharp eyes of a numismatist. There
were the letters Pandosia inscribed on it, but
what was better there was an emblem, indicative
of a well known river, the Crathis. Then every
thing was revealed with the same certainty as if
the piece of money bad been an atlas, and Pan
dosia, (be mythical city, was at once given its
E roper position in Bruttium. Now, a coin may
e valuable for artistic merit, bat when it eluci
dates a doubtful point in history or geography its
worth is very much enhanced. This silver coin,
which did not weigh more than a quarter of a
dollar, because it cleared an the mvsterv of Pan
dosia, was worth to the British Museum $1,000
iue price mey paid lor it.
