THE MIRACLE OF THE NILE.
A Stoi-ilo Dosort Transformed nt Its
Overflow into a Fruitful Fara
diso. Hy no ono, perhaps, hnvo tho im
pressions produced by tho various
phases of tho rivor boon so poetic
ally described as by Oshtirn, who
thus describes tho low Nilo:
"Tho Nilo has shrunk within its
banks until its stream is contracted
to half its ordinary dimensions, and
its turbid, slimy, stagnant wators
scarcely seem to llow in any direc
tion. Broad Hats or stoop banks of
black, sun-baked Nilo mud form
both tho shores of tho rivor. All
boyond them is sand and sterility,
for tho hamseon, or sand wind of
fifty days' duration, has scarcely yot
ceasod to blow. Tho trunks and
branches of trees may bo soon horo
and thoro through tho dusty, hazy,
burning atmosphere, but so entirely
aro thoir loavos coated with dust,
that at a diBtanco thoy aro not dis
tinguishable from tho dosort sand
that surrounds thorn. It is only by
tho most painful and laborious oper
ation of watering that any tint ap
proximating to groonnoss can bo
prosorvod at this season ovon in tho
pleasure gardens of tho Pasha. Tho
first symptom of tho termination of
this most terrible soason is tho rising
of tho north wind (tho Etesian wind
of tho Greeks), blowing briskly,
ofton fiercely during tho whole of
tho day. Tho foliago of the groves
that covor Lower Egypt is soon dis
encumbered by it of tho dust and
resumes its verdure. Tho fierce
fervors of tho suu, then at his high
est asfonsion, aro also most season
ably mitigated by tho saino power
ful agency, which prevails for this
and tho throo following months
throughout tho entire land of
Then at last comes tho inunda
tion: "Perhaps thoroj, is not in nature a
more exhilarating sight, or ono more
strongly exciting to confidence in
God, than tho riso of the Nilo. Day
by day and night by night its turbid
tide sweeps onward majestically ovor
tho parched sands of tho waste, howl
ing wilderness. Almost hourly, as
wo slowly ascended it before tho
Etesian wind, wo heard tho thunder
ing fall of some mud bank and saw by
tho rush of all animated nature to
tho spot that tho Nile had ovorlopt
another obstruction, and that its
bounding waters were diffusing life
and joy through another dosort.
Thero aro few impressions I ovor re
ceived upon the remembrance of
which I dwell with more pleasure
than t hat of seeing tho first burst of
tho Nilo into ono of tho groat chan
nels of its annual overflow. All na
ture shouts for J03'. Tho men, tho
children, tho buffaloes, gambol in its
refreshing waters, the broad waves
sparkle with shoals of fish, and fowl
of every wing flutter over them in
clouds. Nor is this jubileo of nature
confined to tho highor orders of
creation. Tho moment tho sand be
comes moistened by tho approach of
tho fortilizing'waters, it is litorally
alivo with insects inmunorablo. It
is impossible to stand by tho side of
ono of these uoblo streams, to see it
every moment sweeping away some
obstruction to its majestic course,
and widening as it flows, without
feeling tho heart to expand with love
and joy and confidence in tho groat
Author of this annual miracle of
Tho effects of the inundation, as
Osburn shows in another place, "ex
hibit themselves in a scene of fertil
ity and beauty such as will scarcely
bo found in another country at any
soason of tho year the vivid greou
of tho springing corn, tho groves of
pomegranate trees ablazo with tho
rich scarlet of thoir blossoms, tho
fresh breeze laden with tho perfumes
of gardens of roses and orange
thickets, ovory tree and every shrub
covered with sweet-scented flowers.
Theso are a few of tho natural beau
ties that welcome tho strangor to
tho laud of Ham. Thoro is con
siderable sameness in them, it is
true, for ho would observe little
variety in tho trees and plants,
whether ho first ontered Egypt by
tho gardens of Alexandria or tho
plain of Assouan. Yot is it tho same
everywhere, only because it would
bo impossible to make any addition
to tho sweetness of the odors, tho
brilliancy of the colors, or tho ex
quisite beauty of tho many forms of
vegetable life, in tho midst of which
he wanders. It is monotonous, but
it is tho monotony of paradise.
"Tho flood roaches Cairo on a day
closely approximating to that of the
summer solstice. It attains its great
est height and bogius to doclino near
tho autumnal equinox. By tho win
ter solstice tho Nilo has again sub
sided within its banks and resumed
its blue color. Seed time has oc
curred in this interval. Tho year in
Egypt divides itself into three sea
sons four months of sowing and
growth, corresponding nearly with
our November, December, January
and February; four mouths of har
vest from Alarch to Juno; tho four
months of the inundation complet
ing tho cycle." London Mature.
A Long Walk.
A well-known comedian ono day,
while fulfilling an engagement in
Dublin, was walking with his wife, a
remarkably stout, short lady, when
an Irish woman with a basket brush
ed against her.
"You had bettor walk ovor mo,"
said tho comedian's wife, irritably.
The Irishwoman turned round,
coolly viewed hor from head to foot
and thou replied, "Faith, ma'am, it
would be easier to walk ovor you
than round you, anyhow" a remark
which made the comedian almost
choke with laughter.--London An
Hwvrs. Elder S. S. Heaver, of AlcAllistor
yillo, .luniatta Co., Pa., says hia wife
is subject to cramp in tho stomach.
Last hummer she tried Olianibor
laiu'H Colic, Cholera and Diarrhtua
Itemedy for it, and was much pleas
ed with the speedy roliof it afford
ed. She has since used it whenever
necossary and found that it never
fails-, hor sale by nil dealers. Ben
son, Smith A; Co,, agents for tho
Womon Studonts at Zurich.
Tt is now about fifty j-ears since
woman studonts have boon admitted
to leulures in Zurich University, and
though from timo to time reports
not allogolhor favorable have been
circulated about thorn, perhaps with
out foundation in fact, and cortaiuly
generally oxaggoratod, tho serious
ness and abilitj' of tho womon stu
dent of to-day is gaining well-merited
respect. The community of stu
dents comprises all nationalities and
conditions of womon. In tho yoar
1892 sovouty ladies matriculated, be
longing to no loss than fifteen differ
ent countries. As n rule thoy aro
older than tho mon. Indeed, ono of
tho American medical studonts ho
camo a grandmother while pursuing
her studios at tho university, but
Bho was only forty-ouo, and hor now
honor did not provout hor passing
an oxcollent examination. Accord
ing to tho custom in Gorman and
Swiss universities, tho women will
havo little to do with tho professors
outside tho lectures, although thoy
would bo much bonofitod by tho aid
and advice of thoir instructors did
not conventionality forbid; nor is
thoro any groat social intercourse
botwoon tho professors and tho wo
mon in their classes. Tho rolations
botwoon mon and womon students
aro formal, each sect holding out
for its respective rights. Flirtation
is almost unknown, and tho mar
riages contracted botwoon tho stu
donts aro few. At loast half of tho
womon live in lodging houses and
propare their own breakfast and
suppor, practicing strictest economy,
and being fully occupiod with
studios. In tho town itsolf tho
modical studonts aro much likod for
tho gentle manner in which thoy
perform their duties at tho hospi
tals. iY. F. Sim.

Hold your ordors for Johnson is coming
Tho shirt maker is on the wav
Look out for his whiskers for they are leak

Respect to Johnson tho bluffer justly paid
And noble shirt maker honored his joblots
But whence this being? that a name so
Should join with Johnson the shirt man,

To future ages humble his job lots name,
Johnson and shirt maker had been well
The city collector and the city bard.
Now import all your so called shirt makers
To take my honest living awav if ou can
