Ten years were passed. A man and
his wife were seated before a biasing fire.
The evening was extremely cold, and the
wind blew fierce and keen. Yes, the ed
itor of the Trihnne was housed, with bis
wife, in his stately mansion, furnished in
the finest style, and brilliantly lighted
with costly chandeliers. It was about an
bonr after sundown, and the bell had
rang for tea. A rap was heard at the
street door, and npon epening it, there
stood a woman, pale and dejected, and
apparently not far from the grave. She
had with her thre rapged chidren, shiv

Johnson, a candidate for gobernttorial

"We met this Eagle, and csn say with

which is considered as equivalent to being

at'that 'would have afforded "ttiem an op

How to Cook Beefsteak. A beef
steak ought always to be broiled and nev
er fried; bnt the following method of
cooking is recommended by Mrs. ITtrr
TOff, which even those who are aoensto ru
ed to frying may be willing to try:
The frying-pan being wiped very dry,
place it npon the stove, and let it become
hot very hot. In the meantime, man
gle the steak if it chance to be sirloin,
so much the better nenner and salt it.
then lay it on the hot, dry pan, which in
stantly cover as tightly as possible.
When the raw flesh touches the heated
pan, of course it seethes and adheres to it,
but in a few seconds it becomes loosened
and juicy. Every Iialf minute tnrn the
steak; bnt be careful to keep it as mnch
as possible nnder cover. When nearly
done lay a small, piece of bntter npon it;
and if yon want mnch grnvy, add a tea-
spoonful of good strong coffee. In three
minutes from the time the steak first goes
into the pan it is ready for the table.
This method of cooking makes the most
delicious, delicately broiled steak fnll of
juice, yet .retaining the healthy beefy fla
vor that any John Bnll could require.
The same method may be applied to
mntton chops, only they require a little
longer cooking to prevent them from
being rare. An excellent gravy miy be
made for them by adding a little caeam,
thickened with a pinch of flonr, into
which, when off the fire and partly cool,
stir in the yolk of an egg well beaten.
Sharpening Edoed Tools. We trans
late the following from a German scien
tific jonrna, for the benefit of onr me
chanics and sgricnltnral laborers:
"It has long been known that the sim
plest method of sharpening a razor is to
pnt it for half an hoar in water to which
has been added one-twentieth of its weight
of muriatic or sa'phorio acid, then light
ly wipe it off, and after a few boors set
it on a hone. The acid here supplies the
place of a wheistone by corroding the
whole surface uniformly, so that nothing
farther bat a.emooth polish is necessary.
The process never injures a good blade,
while badly hardened ones are frequently
improved by it, although the canse of
such an improvement temains unexplain
ed. "Of late this process has been applied
to many other cutting implements. The
workman at the beginning of bis noon
spell, or when he leaves off' in the cvo
ning, moistens the blades of his tools
with water.. acidified as above, tha cost
of which is almost nothing. This saves
the consumption of time and labor in
whetting, which moreover speedily wears
out the blade. The mode of sharpening
here indicated wonld lie found especially
advantageous for sickles and scythes."
Cure foe Scmjier Complaint. The
following is believed to be a remedy for
Summer Complaint. We have the as
surance from reliable people, that it has
had a most prompt and happy effect in a
nnmber of cases: Ons t.blespoonfnl of
loaf sugar; one do. of castor oil; one do.
of pirezorio ; the white of an egg; one
teaspoonfal of strong tea made of white
oak hark. Beat the sngar, egg and oil
well together, then add the paregoric and
bark tea, and shake well.
Directions for Giving the Remedy
For children of nine months, give six
drops to begin with ; in fifteen minntes,
give six more; in thirty minntes, six
more then give Ihe ssme quantity after
every discharge from th bowels, till the
discharges become natural.
Jnst before rain, flowers smell strong
er and sweeter, became the vapors of the
air prevent the scented particles of their
perfnme from ascending as they would in
a dryer atmosphere. Instesn ot rising
above the eattb, the odor is disseminated
by the moistnre. Because the plants are
stronger in fragrance just before a fall of
rain, we see horses stretch ont their necks
and sniff the air in a peculiar manner.
Animals are more observing then men,
and natnre. speaks to them in a silent
manner. They are thus able to prog
nosticate the 'coming storm with uner
ring signs, while man. stands bewildered
and lost in donbt.
Below is a receipt for cholera morbus,
diarrhoea, dec, which we have tried, and
wonld reccommend to ba kept in every
bouse these "cholera times." Take equal
parts of the tinctnre of the following,
(say one ounce of each, which will cost
about 75 cents):
Dose for aa ad alt a teaspoonfnl, in a
little cold water, every other honr, and
nntil the disorder is checked.
Necealoia. This paiafnl malady baf

Looking for Hix. Our boat stopped
to take wood. On the shore, among a
crowd, was a remarkably stupid-looking
fellow, with his bands in his pockets, and
his nnder lip hanging down. A dandy,
noticing him, ripe for" a scrape, tipped
nods and winks all about, saying:
"Now. ill nave some fnn. Bee me
frighten that greenhorn."
He jumped ashore, with a drawn bowie
knife, and brandishing it in the face of
the " green 'an," exclaimod : ''
" Now I'll punish yoa I I've been
looking for yoa a week I"
The fellow stared at his assailant. Ho
evidently had not sense enough to be
soared. But presently, as the bowie-knife
came near to his face, one of his huge
fists suddenly vacated his p. set, snd fell
hard and heavv between the' frdy's eyes.
floundering the fellow in the waters of the
"Greeny" thon jumped on board the
boat, pnt his bands again into his capa
cious pockets, and looking aronnd, said:
"May be there's eomebody else here
that's been lookin' for mo a week I"
Betrayed Herself. The Editor's
Table of the Knickerbocker recently con
tained the following:
A yonng gentleman, .a member of onr
College, was expelled for tbe crimo of
drawing'yonng ladies np to his room', by
means of a basket from bis window. Of
conrse, a great deal of gossipping con
versation was the consequence. The fol
lowing conversation occarred betweeo
two ladies :
"Jane, do yon believe that students
draw girls up to their rooms.?"
" Certainly, my dear; more than that,
I know they do."
" Well, I was going by the College,
one morning it was just, oetore ngnt
and I heard a noise in the direction of tbe
College buildings. I looked that way,
and as I see yoa now, I saw a girl in a
basket about midway from a third story
window to the ground ; and just then the
rope broke, and down J came !"
Elihn was directed by his tescher to

A few weeks after a lata marriage, tbs
hnsband had some peculiar thoughts
when pntting on his last clean shirt, as
he saw no appearance of a " washing."
He therefore rose earlier than nsnsl, one
morning, and kindled a fire. When
hanging on the kettle, he made a noise
on purpose to aronse his essy wife. She
immediately peeped over the blankets,
and thsn exclsimed :
"My dear, what are yon doing?"
He deliberately responded : "I've pnt
on my last clean shirt, and I am going
to wash one now for myself."
"Very well," replied Mrs. Easy; "yon
had better wash ona for me, too I"
