The Inter-Ocean of the 80th tilt, gives
the following chapter of domestic and
scientific interest: At No. 204 Went
worth avenue, Chicago, on the 15th, Mrs.
Peter Weber of four daughters. That's
the way the event would have been an
nounced to the world had it taken place
in some of the older settlements of the
earth across the sea, say indjreat Britain,
where the primal injunction is still held in
reverence by the Queen and the meanest
of her subjects. Had Mr. Weber been a
British subject instead of an American
citizen, he would ere now have been the
happy recipient of a congratulatory mes
sage from his most gracious Queen, not
to speak of the sum of ten guiueas or so
of the current coin of the realm by way of
recognition of his contribution. Mr. Web
er is a machinist by trade, a German by
birth. Just now he U a saloon keeper,
and one might judge by his appearance
and demeanor that he keeps a very re
spectable kind of a place. He is a cheer
ful, jovial looking fellow, apparently about
thirty years of age, of medium stature,
light hair, and florid complexion. His
wife, he says, is a French Canadian.
They have been married eleven years, and
two of their children are already on the
way toward maturity. The event of the
15th, he says, was a surprise to him but
he kept a cheerful countenance and looked
out for burglars. Not one of them got
away. Up to last night they (the chil
dren) were all, except one, doing well,
and promising to have the ordinary lease
of human life. The accoucher on the in
teresting occasion was Dr. Edwin 1'. H.
Wilder, whose office is at 375 Wentworth
avenue, and who resides at 1S3 Twenty
second 6treet. For particulars enquire of
him. The father of this hSDDT croup of
four girls, all of an age, was seen in the
vicinity of the City Hall yesterday after
noon. Some of his friends were evidently
determined to make a lion of him, but he
seemed rather inclined to get away from
their well-meant demonstration, until a
reporter of the Inter-Ocean asked him
a.! . .
maaI "orJ u,0.v wore "'"'"g was ! would be a burden
true or not ? " True," said he, " well you
just jump on the cars and come up to my
house, and I'll show you as pretty a sight
as you will ever see in Chicago."
"Are they all alive and well. Mr.
" They're just over two weeks old, and
all doing pretty well. Xo," said be, after
a pause, " one of them's not doing so well.
I'm afraid she's not going to live."
" Is that the youngest one ?"
"How do I know?" said Mr. Weber.
" It's the littlest one. She's never been so
well as the other ones, and she looks rath
er thiu and yellow like. I'm afraid I'll
have to bury her."
" But the other three are healthy ?"
"Well, if you don't believe me, you
just come up, and see my crib, with the
young ones in it. There's two little heads
up this way and two little heads up that
way. It's the pretties nest you ever saw."
" Mr. Weber," said the reporter, " will
you allow me to just ask you "
" Oh, mein Gott I" said the father of
the four all at once ; " what do you want
to ask me so many questions for. I tell
yon, come up and see them yourself, and
then you'll know all about it. My wife
she is getting well, and she'll be glad to
see you and show them to you."
" Mr. Weber, one question more. Have
you any objection to my mentioning this
fact in the newspaper ? Of course its
your own affair, and I would not make it
public without your permission."
Said Mr. W. i " Why you can do as
you like about that. I don't care who
knows it, and if you don't believe it, just
come up to 204 Wentworth avenue, and
see my little nest."
With that Mr. Weber tore himself away
from his friends and went toward the

writer on social science, maintains that
the rate of fertility diminishes as a higher
degree of development is attained, and a
diminished fertility arising from this cause
would only be the effect of a law of na
ture whose operations could not be avert
ed in any way, except by a positive de
generacy. Population may indeed de
crease from other and preventible causes,
but to what extent this is the case with
us, is yet a matter to be definitely settled.
The rapid rate of increase which mark- a
a thinly settled commnnity, cannot be
maintained as the population becomes
more uense, nor is it desirable that it
should There must be some limit to the
population that a given extent of territory
will maintain, and as its number increases
the rate of increase tends to diminish

more decided refutation of the Malthusian

All such inquiries as those of Dr. Clarke,
all investigations into the laws and prac
tical habits by which disease may lie
averted, health increased, and life pro
longed, are to be welcomed. But because
these inquiries disclose a great amount of
evil, there is no need of our getting the
blues and going into a fit of despondency.
We have no doubt that future generations
will be healthier and longer lived than
ours, on account of these investigations.

Dr. Clarke, of Boston, takes a very
gloomy view of the physical and sanitary
condition of the people of 3Iassachusetts.
According to him we are in great danger
of dying out. Our constitutions are los
ing their stamina. Our women are be
coming incapable of child bearing, and we
are going to the " demnition bow-wows "
about as fast as possible. He has been
promulgating these views for several
years, and has given renewed expression
to them in a recent publication, in which
he sets himself up especially against the
modern doctrines in regard to women's
education and the extension of their civil
Undoubtedly there are many unfavora
ble cirenmstances in our physical and sani
tary condition, and a great deal is yet to
be learned and practised for their improve
ment. The fact that greater attention is
at this day paid to these things than ever
before brings these unfavorable features
to light more prominently than ever. Bnt
it may be donbted whether we are really
any worse off" than our ancestors. The
average duration of human life is certainly
on the increase, and this fact alone would
seem sufficient to prove that we are not
really degenerating. Nor are the alleged
facts in relation to child bearing sufficient
to prove the doctor's assertion.
Herbert Spencer, the greatest living
A Temperance Lecture.
No more stirring temperance lecture
can be needed than that conveyed in re
cent statistics relating to crime in New
York city. There are said to be in the
city in round numbers seven thousand
licensed saloons, graded from $250 to $30
per annum each for license fees, and yield
ing last year a total revenue of $527,380.
If their receipts are put at $20 per day
each which would seem to be a low es
timate this would give $1-40,000 daily,
and for a year without Sundays, which is
the way the traffic is pursued there, the
total would amount up to the enormous
sum of $51,100,000. This is taking no
account of the unlicensed saloons, of
which there are no less than two thou
sand. If this tax, considered as a finan
cial draft alone, were levied equitably up-,
on the whole population of the city, it
which would excite
the indignation or the sympathy, accord
ing to the case, of the whole country ; but
the fact is, the chief weight of the exac
tion falls upon the laboring and poorer
classes. It constitutes the greatest draw
back upon their prosperity, the main curse
of their lot.
It is not, however, as a mere financial
exaction that the liquor business deserves
attention. It is a feeder of crime, beyond
all other causes or at least it has more
to do with the cases coming under the
cognizance of the Courts. It accounts for
40,777, or nearly one-half the total num
ber of arrests. Over two thousand of
these were charged with disorderly con
duct. Of the total number arrested for
being drunk, 27,203 were males and 13,-
574 females. It should be remembered
that these figures do not begin to give any
idea even of the intemperance visible in
New York city, because "intoxication,
under the law, is not an offence unless the
person is arrested in an intoxicated state,
under circumstances amounting to a vio
lation of public decency." The convic
tion on the two charges of intoxication
and disorderly conduct represent about 71
per cent, of the entire number of convic
tions for all classes of offences.
Such facts speak for themselves, and if
they are not heeded by those whom they
most concern, what hope is there that
they will be attentive to any other ap
peals ? In fact, so far as mere knowledge
is concerned, the victim of intenipearance
has all that can be asked. What he wants
is new and better motives, strength to re
sist temptation, better associates, power
to overcome old habits and in supplying
this sort of help the better part of the
community have a continual field of effort.
And if the statistics we have copied con
tain much that is discouraging and hope-
he had been fed be kept running toward
the door of the house and then back to
his master's friend, pulling him by the
sleeve, and used all sorts of dumb elo
quence as if ho wanted him to follow.
At last the friend resolved to follow
the leading of the dog, who made his way
to the forest and went straight to the foot
of the tree where his murdered master lay.
Here the dog began to howl piteonsly,
scratching up the earth with his paws and
showing his wish that the place should be
dug out. Upon digging a few feet, the
friend and his companions came upon the
body of M. Mont Didier, bearing the
wounds which had been inflicted upon it
by the knife of the murderer. For some
time, however, no trace ot the actual as
sassin could be found, till one day the dog
met in the streets of Paris a certain cheva
lier named Macaire, whom he instantly
tried to seize by the throat with great
fury. This strange conduct on the part
of a quiet and peaceable animal was re
peated on a second occasion? and as it was
known that Macaire had been a personal
enemy of Mont Didier, grave suspicions
began to be aroused.
At length the affair reached the ears of
the King, who, being anxious that the
matter should he thoroughly sifted, sent
for Macaire anil also for the dog, who was
gentle and playful until he scented Ma
caire in the, crowd of courtiers standing
around the King, when, as usual, he
showed the fierciest hostility toward him.
Struck by such an undesigned piece of
circumstancial evidence, the King at once
ordered that the decision should bo re
ferred to the trial by battle, or " appeal
to the judgment of God," and a comhat
was ordered to be held between the Chc-
velier and the dog in the lie de Notre
Dame, which then was almost an open
pace. The terms of the encounter were
that the dog was to have an empty cask
to retreat into after he had made his
springs at his foe, while the man was al
lowed a cudgel by way of arms.
Everything was prepared for the duel,
when the dog no sooner found himself freo
and face to face with his antagonist than
he began running round and round Ma
caire, avoiding his blows, until at last ho
seized him fairly by the throat, and after
a severe struggle succeeded in laying him
prostrate on the ground. The Chcvelier
was rescued from the dog's grip by tho
bystanders, and conscience stricken, in tho
presence of the King, his conrt and the
rest of the spectators, ho acknowledged
his guilt. A few days afterward he expia
ted his crime upon tho scaffold. Tho
" Dog of Montargis " is a well-known tale
iu France, where its substantial truth is
not doubted, and it has been, we believe,
the subject of, at all events, one popular

It is an interesting fact and true to a
great extent that the style of dress and
ornaments of the Hebrew ladies of the
present day and in fact the prevailing
toilet of all ladies is much the same as
during the time of Soloman. With all
the changes and variations of centuries,
the gradations of chignon and crinolines,
we now find much of the simple and easy
symmetry of ancient Greece.
Tho Scriptures narrate many things
about the style of dress worn in the time
of Solomon, and in the law of Moses seve
ral directions are given concerning gar
ments worn by the Israelites. In the Book
of Judges the girls of that period are de
scribed by Deborah, as " A prey of divers
colors of needle work," while Lemuel says,
" Their clothing is of silk and purple." In
the frequent intercourse between tho Jew
ish and other nations the ladies tired of
their primitive simplicity, sought the fash
ions of the clever Egyptians, the elegant
Phoenicians, and the luxurious Persians.
Even patient Job became impatient of the
dresses, and Isaiah denounces the" women
of the period," living for nothing but dress
and flirtation, with the one desire to ' see
and be seen."

Duel between a Man and a Dog.
Apropos of the controversy as to the
reality of a recent combat between a man
and a dog at Hanley, many readers who
have stopped at Montargis, on the route
from Paris to Lyons, will remember the
story of the Dog of Montargis, who fought
with the murderer of his master and
avenged his blood. In the great hall of
that town, before its demolition, there
was a fresco painting over the fireplace.

Bracelets on the right arm. strincrs of

tles, fastened with golden pins, are also
spoken of The hair was also oiled, dyed,
and put in coils ; little curls were let hang
over the forehead, and strange to say,
the girls of Solomon's time, it is stated,
Veils were worn, and sandals were made
of blue and violet colored leather, with
fancy lacketa. Solomon, as is related,
said to Shulamite, " How beautiful are
thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter !"
Hair nets were worn, and ear-rings of all

presence of Charles VL in the lists of Be

told at length in Memoirs ear Us Duels.
It runs as follows:

this the dog made his way to the house of
