. Then you have got all of the workmen ?
YOU BET! This go WO.t business I must explain to
yon, OLD PICKLES. Some years ago there waa another
OLIU'KANK that published a paper In New York aalled
the New York Tribunr. He nited to give advice to all
young men to " go West." Well, this Go West waa liv
ing down in Nova Scotia, and It waa with him aa with an
old family by the name of Hansom in New Jersey. The
old man waa well to do in this world's goods, but never
went to church, whilst the old woman was somewhat in
cUned to go to church. Some of their GALS were get
ting np In their teens, and the old woman thought they
ou 'ht to go in some society, ao she kept teasing the old
man to go to church and let tbeOALS get in Society, that
they were approaching womanhood, and if they did not
Ket them iu society theT might die old maids. So she
made an impression on the old man, And he consented to
co to gratify mamma's wishes; but still, at the aame
tiilie the old mau was not very anxions about it. Finally
f,ey got started, but on the way the old man says,
-'Mother I have nOt been in the church since we were
married, so I think the old dominie will make some re
marks about lb" Ssys the old womsn, " You talk like in
t.ld fool the dominie may not know that we are In the
i-hurch -Well now, old woman, you have your way
about it", but you see." So they got to church and the
usher seated them all right, and the two GALS; but tho
dominie that married them over twenty years before,
kept eveicg the old man. and the old man droplng his
head finally the old dominie in the pulpit roee up, open
ed hl'a hymn book and commenced to read, thusly, Re
turn ye Ransom. Sinner Home." The old mat rose up
and ealrf. - By Jove, mother, what did I tell you about
this" But the old woman insisted that he didn't mean
them " " Ah." saya the old man. there are no other
Kansnm In this house, you can t fool me on that. I can't
bo;t that Iu." s home they went and haven t been to
rhur. b since. This is a parallel case with that of Go
West That young man was a reaiier vi me a nnm,
be saw the " go West " in it. so be got up and got, and is
now in the Swamp. , . ,
Well. OLD SUN. that is quite a comparison, but bo
about that old J mik Store?
Well OLD PICKLE. I am worried with yon.
Have' yon any objections to being called SUN FLOW ER?
Not at all, OLD PICKLES, on the contrary I think it is
mute a compliment. Oscar W tide, the scholar, poet and
auostle of .tbeiiclam, haa given to the Sunflower and
the Lily the most prominent places in the Floral World;
the Lily for its purity and delicacy, and Sunflower from
its resembling to the Golden Orb of Day. It la immate
rial to me whether I am dalled a Sunflower or a R'?.
The Ro by any other name will smell ao sweet,"
Well, just once more. OLD SUN, have you any
Not many. OLD PICKLES.
Give us a few, OLD SUN.
Well. I have a shoe from the foot of Punchbowl, a tooth
from the mouth of Pearl Iiiver. and a cap from Diamond
read lhat comprises my principal stock of CI KIOS.
H,w is that. OLD PICKLES ?
oiiite sufficient. OLD SUN.
well. OLD PICKLES. I have a lot more, but it is get-on-!tc.
and time is money, bull I ought to sty some
thing more about that Go West notice in the papers, and
would do ao. if it were not so soft and ailly. I thought
that llinros-pociis-rhincus would have done better for the
aiiroiint paid for it.
Now. just another qnestiou. OLD SUN, have you any
thing to say for yourself?
Ye. OLD l'I. 1.1-S, I Uii'l.t say a preat deal, but I
don't waut to hurt the feeling of the I.D MAN IN THE

The Twilight of the Year.
The yellow leaves are falling
Upon the earth's brown breast,
The lonely thrush is calling
Near iu old decaying nest.
The flowers now are dying.
They droop low on their bed,
Where scattered blooms are lying
So scentless, sere, and dead.
The birds hare ceased their singing
In willows near the rill ;
Their glad notes are not ringing
A they lined to on the hill.
The beauties of the meadows
With Mummer time has fled.
And deepened are the shadow
By solemn antmn's tread.
The hazy snn is beaming
As it seeks the far off West;
The day, so weary seeming,
SinVs early now to rest.
And with the waning daylight,
Goes earth's most dreary smile,
The year is in the twilight.
The melancholy w hile.
-J. W. VaUandingham.
TALMAQE ON NEWSPAPERS-
The Rev. T. De Witt Talmage, the great
American preacher, recently addressed his
congregation on the newspaper press and its
value in humanizing' and civilizing the peo
ple. His text was iizra, 16th chapter and
1 2th verse 4 And the wheels were full of
eyes ' nnd Acts 17 and 2l For the
Athenians and strangers that were there
spent their time in nothing else but to tell
or hear some new things.' In alluding to
the antiquity of the newspaper, he siid the
first to answer the cry 'Whit is the news?'
were the Chinese, s over a thousand years
ago, in Pekin, a journal was printed on silk.
The first newspaper printed in Boston was
in 1691. and in Philadelphia in 1784; the
newspaper did not spring up suddenly, but
came gradually. The circular begot the
pamphlet, the pamphlet the quarterly, the
quarterly the monthly, the monthly the
weekly, and the weekly the daily, out just
as the newspapei beuj-sn to demonstrate its
power it was shackled. 'Usehss ! Useless !
Useless ! ! !' exclaimed Talmage, 'There is
n thing that despotism hates as it does the
newspaper. Even Napoleon sid the only
safe place to keep editors was in prison. If
I had to choose between a Government
without a newspaper and a newspaper with
out a Government, I should choose the lat
ter. A filthy newspaper is a curse, but a
rood newspaper is a blessing. Thank God
that the wheej is full of eyes. A good news
paper is the grandest blessing that God has
give this country. The newspaper is the tun
nel that brings the water of knowledge to the
people. The Bible, Webster's dictionary,
ond the newspaper fit men lor this life and
the next. The cylinders of the printing
press will be the front wheels of the Lord's
DANGERS FROM GLUCOSE.
The Boston Journal of Chemistry is
authority for the statement that only glass
vessels can be safely used in the process of
rendering starch into glucose. 1 his is im
practicable on a large scale, nnd hence cop
per tanks are largely used, as the almost
universal traces of copper found in glucose
plainly indicate- The stomach does not
recognize this metal, as a valuable ally in
building up a strong constitution, but there
are ether dangers to be considered why
artificial glucose should not be forced into
the market and into the stomachs of unsus
pecting consumers. To obtain the maxi
mum sweet sensation produced by an ounce
of crystallizable sugar, two and a half ounces
of glucose are "required, and this nearly
trebles the volume of material needed to
s itisfy the taste. If one teaspoonful of true
sugar is all that is required to sweeten a
cup of coffee to the taste, two and a half of
glucose is required as an equivalent, and in
thus we see how objectionable must be this
loading down of the organs of digestion nd
assimilation with a negative substance
represents that point in the
descending scale of chemical chancre in cane
sugar which renders it capable of undergo
ing tne process oi iermeniaiiou ana inus
breaking up into new compounds. It is
nearer that state of rapid decomposition
which results in the production of alcohol
with the evolution of carbonic acid. Glucose
undergoes the change in the stomach with
greater facility than sugar; and thus we find
that honey, which is largely glucose, gives
rise to flatulency, colic, nd nausea, when
taken freelv with food. It is easy to infer
from what has been stated that, while glu
cose must not be regarded as a poison, it hs
probably objectionable eiFects upon the sys
tem, which makes it an undesirable, if not
dangerous substance. It is a cheap material,
costincr about a cent a pound, and yet it is
sold at prices, in tbe syrup mixtures, higher
than the genuine sugarcane syrups It is
a form tf" fraud which is fast becoming of
immense magnitude, and should receive the
immediate attention of law makers.
DO NOT WASTE BONES-
The bones of fish, the bones of fowls, the
Itrrre and small di ces ot bones which aie
purch sed with beefsteak and mutton, con
stitute the very best food for fruit trees and
crape vines, if the fragments are only placed
where the roots can lav hold of them. In
stead of allowing pieces of bone to be cast
into the back yard, as food for stray dogs
and stranire cats, domestics should be di
rected to deposit everything of the sort in a
small tub provided with a lid. As soon as
only a few pounds have accumulated, we
take the tub to some grape vine or fruit tree,
dig a hole three or more feet long, a foot or
two wide, and not less than a foot deep, in
to which the bones are dumped, spre-d over
the bottom of the excavation and covered
with the soil. The more the fragments can
be spread around the better. But they should
l.e burisd so deep that the plow or spade wil
not reacn them. The roots of growing vines
or fruit trees will soon find the valu ble
mine of rich iertility, and will feed on the
elements that will greatly promote the
growth of strong and healthy wood, and the
development of fair and luscious Iruit.
Many horticulturansts ana larmers pur
chase Lonadust, costing not less than two
cents per pound, simply to emich the soi
around and beneath their trees and vines
Fragments of bones are just as valuable as
ground bone, although their elements o
fertility w. II not be iound available in so
short a time as if the large pieces were re
duced to small atoms. Nevertheless, if large
bones be buried three or four feet from
grape vine, the countless numbers of mouths
at'the ends of roots will soon dissolve, take
up, and appropriate every particle Vhen
cast out of the kitchen door, bones are like
a nuisance; wnereas n propeny. ounea, mey
become a source of valuable fertility. Let
every person who owns a grape vine or fruit
tree "save all the bones that pass through the
r I t ; - J .1
kitchen, and bury them where such worthless
material will be turned to some pront.
Thk faculty of doing the right thing at the
right inomeat is entirely independent of merely
animal or constitutional conrage. ixapoieon saia

MR. H- A- P. CARTER IN BOSTON.
TITE SANDWICH ISLANDS.
In conversation recently regarding the re
lations between the United States and the
Sandwich Islands, Mr. H. A. P. Carter,
agent of the Hawaiian Government, who
on his way home from France and Portugal,
wnere he has been on diplomatic business
concerning his Government, made the state
ment that they are on a most admirable
basis, the result of a treaty between the
countries made by Mr. Allen and himself
some six or seven years ago. As far back as
Mr. Seward's time, said Mr. Carter, the im
portance of the neutrality of the Sand-rich
Islands toward all other nations was recog
nized by the statesmen of this country, who
saw that should any power obtain suprem
acy there that power would have a station of
immense utility should it desire to attack the
Pacific Coast of the United States. Mr.
Seward and others tried vainly to prepare a
treaty which Congress would ratify. At last,
however, the Government of this country
recognized the necessity, and it announced
its determi ation to maintain that desired
neutrality at any cost, by force of arms if

The treaty, then, was finally drawn p and

deel ires that no power shall begiven any pre

l A a rm
uounas oi Hawaiian territory, ine provi
sions next n importance provide for the ad
mission, fiee of duty, into the Sandwich
Isltnds, of a long list of i-nicies from the
United States ; while in return the latter Go
vernment admits from the Sandwich Islands,
without tax, suijar, rice, ond a fewfruits and
other natural products. The result is that
the annual interchange of products between
the two countries amounts to nbout $7 000
UUU each way, while the capital investetl in
the Islands lias increased from 7,000,000 be"
fore the treaty to about $30,000,000 at pre
sent. To be sure some twenty odd mil ions

As I stid before; the Hawaiian Government
knows its own weakness, and knows, too
th t to sustain itselt it must have the mo.st
f orable commercial relations with other
nations. Those relitions with the United

by the way, is not so bad a bod as it often
is said to be, would nbrogate a treaty so ad
vantageous and so important to the interests
of its own Government tor any such reason
us that given above. 1 he provisions of the
treaty, favorable us they are to the Untited
States, naturally are more or less distaste
ful to some of the other powers. Great
Brit. in reg-irds it s giving the United
States political preferment, while France in
sisted that certain clauses of our treaty with
her should he stricken out, and a part of the
mission from which Irnn returning hnsbeen
o patch that matter up. Ihe r rench Gov
ernment has cast longing eyes at the most
important country in the northern Pacific,
and anticipated much advantage to itself
rom the completion of its Panama Canal,
but I fancy that the United States is able to
take care of its own interests in this direc
tion. As you probably know, the
population of our islands has been decreas
ing at an alarming rate. Contact with
civilization brought with its evils in the
shape of vices and diseases, and the decrease
in native population from mortality, amount
ing to ten per cent in six years, with prac
tically no immigration to supply the loss
A few years ago, Chinese began to come to
the country in large numbers. They found
it a perfect paradise, and devoted themselves
to the cultivation of rice. In California the
opposition to them had the effect nf banding
them together, both in interests and in the
location of their dwellings, a result which
made them more offensive than before. In
the Sandwich Islands they meet with no
persecution, and the nuisance of their herd
ing together was avoided. But there was
a danger of another mture connected with
beir settlement of the country Our entire
population numbered about 60,i'00; of this
number about 45,000 were natives.
Ordinarily the adult mules of a country
will number one-iourtli ot tne native popu
lation, but likewise, ordinarily the females
outnumber the males. With us the case is
reversed, and the males are in excess so that
our iidult mare population is about 15,000,
It would not take long for the Chinese im
migrants t. equal the natives in number
and xdded to that, the imm grants brought
no women with them They selected their
wives from among the n tives, thus invad
mg, in a measure, the rights of the native
Hides, and often deserted their wives when
hey returned home. It will be readily
seen that this method would not result in
any substanti il increnss of th-- iiopul.tion
They continued to come for two or three
years, and then the immigration suddenly
ceased by order of the Chinese Government.
It was always supposed that that Govern
ment would be very glad of the power in the
country which the presence ol a large num
ber ot its subjects would give it. and we
could not understtnd its voluntary order of
prohibition 1 have suspected, however, that
Mr Blaine whispered something in its ear,
and 1 know that a public dispatch of his de
dared ttw the L nitea states would never
allow the Sandwich Islands to become
' Asi i ticized, to us his own word.
A Iler th t the British Government wanted
to send us immigr nts irom the last lndis.
but as, while here, they would have to be
under the control of their own Government
we could not conent to that under the tx
isting treaty He are now having a larire
me suie of success with Portuguese irnmi
grants. They are pe ceable and well-dis
posed and take naturally to grazing and
farming. Better than that, they bring their
families with them and . they are prolific
their coining is a real benefit to us. u well
are they liked that an order has just been
sent for J.000 more families.
A snort time arro i tried to organize a
scheme for the coloniz tion of the Southern
negroes, against who n our people, although
not of negro blood, h.ve no feeling, but the
plan was fetrongly opposed by the producers
of the South, who say that, with the fresh
impetus recently given to the industries of
th 1 1 section, and with the large developments
of all branches of Southern m nufacture
premised, it will be but a short time before
they will need all the negro labor that can be
obtained, so that I w s obliged to drop the
