3f t belle, when soatlxward swallows flr,
With bliUisome twitter throngh tbe sky,
Wl.en gold and crimson burn
I'pou the woodland's waving bough.,
And dreamily the cattle browse
Amid the drooling fern,
The-n let ns waudur, you and I,
Hand joined in hand right merrily,
AcroHS the sunny world
where, in fitful autumn breeze,

Are flaunting crimson, gold.
And there, where open the woodland way.
Upon a giant bowlder, gray.
With moss and lichen hung,
Let ns awhile recline and tell
The olden Htory, sweet na belle,
And sing the songs they sung :
Two lovers s the legend goes
Who, where a blissful river flows
Through flowerfnl rcalni9 and fair,
Were ever wont to wander by
Its grassy banks and sing for aye
Their lve so faithful there.
Would'st thou and I, wa belle, might be,
To wander there awhile
Might live a day in that old time
When gay word set themselves to rhyme
As ruby lips to smile.
But only for a day, ma belle.
However, bright the honeyed spell,
Would there I care to stray ;
Content am I with any spot
If thou wilt only share my lot,
Let that be what it may.
So when the swallows southward fly,
And swift the golden months flit by
And winter shrouds the dell.
My heart, like autumn, gay"and glad,
Will never know of sorrows sad
If thou art there, ma belle,

Ihe following frem a correspondent of
the Albany Cultivator will be of interest
to those who take pride in their poultry
yard : A correspondent writes that the
largest eggs he ever got were from Houdans,
1 which were about six to the pound
Houdan hens, when fully matured, lay hxge,
rather longish, while eggs, but they will
not do it until two or three years old. The
largest and richest eggs that I ever met
with were from the Spanish and Hamburg.
These two fowls crossed produce eggs very
lage, and rival the turkey eggs in fineness
and richness. Brown Leghorn eggs ordin
arily weigh nine to the pound, on . the
average ; selected ones probably would go
seven to the pound. There has of late been
an improvement in size of the Asiatic egg
over the first introduced Shanghai fowl
Some of the vanties, as well as many of
their crosses, lay eggs rivalling in size those
of any other variety. In quality they do
not excel, usually possessing small yolks
Ihe t rue. Jirah ma egg is rather smaH, and
of a fresh coffee color, with thick, heavy
shells. The eggs are generally uniform in
size and oval in shape. T

Yesterday morning a very stern and dig

tried to walk through the gates at the Cen

haughtily replied :
It is in my pocket."
"Let me see it?"
1 will not. My word should be proof
that I hive it."
" Have to show your ticket, sir."
' I wont submit to any such indignity,"
said the stern man, and he didn't. He
entered the freight sheds, passed through a
fljur car, climbed over a lot ef hides and
ciept under a baggage car,. and finally
reached the train he was after. A brake
man stood at the steps and asked :
"Going West, sir?"
" No; going East:"
"Then yonr train won't go for three hours
and a half yet. This train goes West."
And the worst of it all was the man at
the gate and a tlozen others caught an and
raised such a laugh that the stern mm went
down into the freight house and hid behind
a box car.

Matrimohi4l insurance In. Mississippi.
A correspondent ia Jackson, .Mississippi,
write as follows concerning the marriage
insurance mania in that State :
Tlie marriage insurance craze in this
State is astonishing. Some time ago one
or two companies were started upon the as
sessment plan, proposing to pay a specified
amount upou the marriage of a member,
provided that no one could claim a benefit
who married before the expiration of six
month from date of certificate of member
ship. Very soon, other associations were
organized, proposing to pay in three mouths
and in May one was launched proposing to
pay for each day a member remained single;
and to-day there are over thirty such organ
izations in Jackson alone, to say nothing
of other places.
Men and women are investing all they
can earn in this wild scheme. Merchants
leave their stores in charge of employes, if
they can find any who are not as crazy as
as themselves, to run the companies or
speculate in the risks, and sober, staid
church members are running wild after
chances in this mttrimonial lottery. If
3ou go out upon the streets, you will see
men hurrying along with their hands full
of these so-called policies, or other- papers
pertaining to these concerns, and if you
approach a group of persons j-ou will almost
certainly hear them comparing risks and
calculating the possibilities of realizing on
their policies before the concerns fail.
If it is ascertained that a party is pro
posing to marry, lie or she, perhaps both,
are besieged by men proposing to insure
them and pay them a pro rata of the
profits. -1 heard of one party who mar
ried a few days since who waa in
sured in- two hundred companies. When
one of these insured persons marries, men
are posted off to be on hand, and get up the
proofs so as to file them and get their first
chance of the next assessment. A few days
since, at a wedding in this city, men took
the minister in hand to sign proofs of mar
riage before the bridal party left the church.
Almost every man you meet is carrying
several risks on persons who insure with
the distinct understanding that they will
marry on a certain day, not far off". Such a
craze this writer never saw ; gamblers have
quit the card tables and faro banks to en
gage in this speculation, and it is said that
the lotteries are about to suspend for want
of ticket-buyers. Was ever such a thing
carried on before in the name of insurance ?
Every sensible man knows that the com
panies can't' last, but each one expects to
realize on the policies he holds before the
collapse. "Somebody will be left, but it
will not be me," says every man you talk
to about it."
Whew!!! What a fraud. But this is
not all the sacred institution of marriage
Is degraded; the wishes of the families
most interested are sometimes set aside
through the management of men who care
nothing about the happiness of the parties,
but simply wish to realize upon their invest
ments. It is said that in some instances

The Amusement of Fault-finding.
The word fault-finding is very significant
It denotes something far beyound mere
taking notice of and condemning ill doing.
That is duty, and not seldom a burdensome
one. Delinquencies are either wholly over
looked or excuses for them are found in
order to escape the disagreeable work of
reprimand or admonition. Not so with fault
finding, which is a deliberate looking for,
searching out and inventing faults and
attacking their victim. -
Fault-finding is a prevailing, apparently
a fascinating, amusement. It is pursued
with all the eagerness, skill and persever
ance with which the hunter seeks his game.
It has such attractions that its devotees are
more reckless in their rough riding after
their victims than the fox hunter who dash
es through grain fields and gardens in
his exciting chase. Your veteran fault
finder follows his sport through the very
houses of his friends, and delights to
disturb the peace of his own household with
his startling "Hallo!"
The dexterity which practice will give to
an industrious iouower oi ims amuseuioiti,
is marvelous. Just as a well-trained pointer
of good stock, will "snifFthe tiinted breeze"
while the cold-blooded cur goes heedlessly
on, so an expert in this line will nose out
most unexpected game. Apparently the
greater pains one takes to avoid remark,
and the more conscientiously he tries to
win deserved approval, the greater the de
light of the fault-finder in covering him
with confusion ; and it is well-known that
the most scrupulous fidelity is accompanied
with greatest sensitiveness, which gives
this cruel sportsman an easier triumph.
Like other game this has its pains. The
recoil of his explosive acts strongly upon
the hunter of this stripe. Faces which
otherwise might hve been attractive are
contracted, furrowed and utterly sporiled
by these effects of their repeated charges.
The spirit which moves him will not let
him enjoy even his own ways in peace, but
even haunts him to the undoing of every
delight. Like the porcupine rolled the
wrong way, he torments his own person,
and so in" some measure reaps his proper
reward. From Outing, for October.
, r ti f A!. a
The London Spectator says : Miss Night
ingale has pointed out how constantly the
mental state of the dying depends en their
physical condition. As a rule, she tells us,
in acute cases interest in their own danger
is rarely felt. " Indifference, except with
regard to bodily suffering, or to some duty
the dying man desires to perform, is the far
more usual state. But patients who die of
consumption very frequently die in a state
of seraphic mind and peace ; the counten
ance almost expresses rapture. Patients
who die of cholera, peritonitis, etc.. on the
contrary, often die in a state approaching
despair. In dysentery, diarrhoea, or lever,
the patient often tiies in a state of indiffer
ence." Those who have carefully examined
the dead on a battle field or in the streets
after an emeute, are struck with the fact
that while the expression on the frees of
those who have died of gunshot wounds is
one cf agony and distress, the dead by
sword have a calmer expression, though
their wounds often seem more painful to
the eye. A very careful observer, who was
through the Indian mutiny, entirely con
firmslhis. After giving several instances
he says : " A rapid death by steel is almost
painless. Sabre edge or point divides the
nerves so quickly as to give little pain. A
bullet lacerates.' .

Orer tb cradlo the mother Lnng,
Softly cooling slumber sung,
And thone wore the siinplo words fhe sung
All the e tming long.
'Chotk or r'i;n. or knuckle or knee,
Whf re i:aii tho baby's dimple be ?
Where bhall the augel's finger reBt,
When he comes down to the baby 'a nest?
Where shall the angel's touch remain
When he awakens my baby again ?"
Still as she bent and sang so low,
A murmur into her music broke,
And aha paused to hear, for she could not know
The baby's angel spoke :
" Cheek or chin, or knuckle or kne.
Where shall the baby's dimple be ?
Whore shall my finger fall and rest
When I come down to the baby's nest f
Where shall my finger's touch remain
When I wake yonr baby agaiu ?"
Silent the mother sat and dwelt
Long on tho sweet delay of choice, fc
And then by her baby's side she knelt.
And sang with pleasant voice :
' Not on the limb, O angi l dear 1
For the charms with its youth will disappear ;
Not on the cheek thall the dimple
For the harboring smile will fade and flee ;
But touch thou the chin with impress deep,
And my baby the angel's seal shall keep."
NOTES ON SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY.
What is claimed to be a marked im
provement in gas regulators consists in con
structing the apparatus essentially in three
parts as follows : A small glass ilabk, used
as an air chamber ; an U-tube. one end of
which is of rather small bore compared with
that of the other, to which latter the appara
tus is attached for regulating the . tempera
ture ; and, lastly, the tube through which
the gas passes. Both limbs of the U-tube
are nearly filled with mercury when the
regulator is to be used. When it is to bo
employed with an air bath, the ilsk is
placed in the, bath ; and, by having re
course to a plunger inside of a piece of very
small tubing, a sole-leather disk of the
proper size, a pin, and some sealing wax
the desired temperature is produced, and
then the instrument will automatically main
tain this temperature, without further
trouble or attention, for any length of time
An improedjhermometer '3 among the
recent foreign inventions, its purpose being
the rating ofternperatures of liquids which
are being raised to points above the range
of ordinary thermometers or pyrometers.
It consists of a tube containing special fluids,
according to the tempera tlre to be noted,
water being employed for points below 450
Ldfyrrees. Theo flnrtfvve',:n? BCl on
the machinery in tbe upper iiart, wnicn.
turns the han "'. m a dial face. The tube
is always within -he liquid to be tested, and
close opening in the cover of the vessel.
allows the pro'ection of the dial face above.
This does away with the uncertainity and
unreliability attendant upon the old method
of taking the thermometer out of the mnsa

also attached an alarm guage tosingal a too
high temperature or sudden change.
A series of measurements have been made
by a party of German engineers, to de
termine the rate and character of the move
ment of glaciers, these observations being
supplementary to those made some time ago
by the same company. Their first oberva
tions seemed to prove a considerable and
unexpected degree of irregularity in the
movement -it being found, for example, that
the same point could have a motion in both
a vertical nd horizontal direction, and that
two points not very far apart in some cases
moved at a different rate, or even in opposite
directions. The later observations give, on
the whole a rather negative result, since the
motions measured were much smaller than
those measured before those in a vertical
direction for example, hardly exceeding the
unavoidable errors of observations, the
amount, however of observed phenomena
indicating real ice movements.
A method of compressing fluid steel has
attracted much attention in England. Steam
pressure is applied to the tp of the mould
immediately after the rnetal is poured The
steam is drvn from a receiver fixed to the
side of the ingot frame, the conduct ing pipes
having one end permanently attached to the
receiver, and the other end is joined by a
coupling with the lid of a mould. It is s:iid
that in practice no . higher pressure than
from 80 to 150 pounds has appeared to be
nece.ssiry, the higher pressure being used in
the case of mild steels, It appears that
under this process, the ingots are turned out
free from porosity and with the advantage
of a perfectly level top. In addition to con
solidating the ingot, the top of the latter is
also cooled by the steam, thus allowing it to
be conveyed to the reheating furnace sooner
than is convenient in the ordinary process.
One of the hardesr woods in existence is
that of the desert iron wood tree, which
grows in the dry washes along the line of
the Southern Pacific Railroad. Its specific
gravity is nearly the same as that of lignum
vita;, and it has a black heart so hard, when
well seasoned, that it will turn the edge of
an axe, and can scarcely be cut by a well
tempered saw. In burning it gives out an
intense heat, and charcoal made from it is
hardly second to anthracite.
To make good buns for lea, stir about
half a pound of butter with one cup of
cream and a half pound of sugar, and beat
them together until light; add four eggs,
well beaten, and at the same time stir in
three quarters of a pound of flour, first mix
ing with it a teaspoonful and a half of bik
ing powder ; flavor with a little nutmeg,
and, if you choose, add currants and a little
brandy. Roll them in the shape of round
biscuits, rub over the top with a'little milk
in which sugar has been dissolved, and bake
