Freservlng Ship Tlmbur3.
A novel process is being attempted
at Camden, Me., to preserve tho wood
of a new 1,400 ton schooner, now al
most ready for launching. All of the
timber of the inside and outside of the
vessel has been soaked in crude petro
leum to save it from dry rot by expos
ure to tho air and to prevent the rav
ages of tho teredo worm in 6alt waters.
Even tho vessel's beams have been
coated and tho tips of the topmasts.
It is expected that the oil will become
so thoroughly soaked in the schooner's
upper works that tho water cannot
penetrate through the wood. Old
wooden vessels which have been con
verted into bulk petroleum carriers,
after having outlived their usefulness
in other trades, have been known to
last for years after becoming soaked
with either crude or refined oil.

Polly would do
well enough for

of making up my mind to be

young man's 6lave when it turns out
"But it can turns out just as you
say, my dear,"said Mrs. Royal. "Give
mo the particulars. Mora is to be
gained by submission than revolt,
especially when tho husband is much
older than the wife."
"Submit !" cried young Mrs. Fisher.
"No! I will never do that-never!
Do ycu suppose I married a rich man
to do the housework ?"
"Let me hear the particulars, Be
renice," repeated Mrs. Royal.
"Well, mamma," 6aid young Mrs.
Fisher, "you know I went into ahouse
full of servants-excellent ones, ff>o.
Josiah was very affectionate, as he al
lays is, and all he asked me to do was
to tie his cravat, and pin a roso ?into
his buttonhole, and to go to the door
and throw kisses to him of a morning.
And after a whilo it was, 'Get my slip
pers, darling. Run for my umbrella.
Where is my handkerchief ?' Very
tiresome, but to be expected. Then
very soon it was, 'Let us send the ser
vants away at meal times, and wait on
ourselves at table. It is so delicious
to be quite alone ! ' Of course I agreed ;
and newjeomes this astonishing prop
osition-dismissatl the servants; live
for each other ! I'm to do the cook
ing for him, iron his Bhirts-black his
boots, for all I know ! Not for econ
omy's sake, but to make life beauti
ful ! Oh, I sha'n't endure it. I can
not, mamma! I shall quarrel if he
persists ! I did not marry a rich man
to be cook and laundress. 1-"
"Be quiet, darling," said Mrs.
Royal. "Listen to me a little while.
Let him have his own way, that you
may have your? in the end. It is an
amiable caprice ; humor it."
A long conversation between mother
and daughter followed, and the result
was that when Mr. Fisher returned to
his home that afternoon he found his
wife fairly beaming with smiles.
"Well, Berenice, my pet, havo you
been thinking of the ideal lifo I pro
posed? You did not 6ecm to appre
ciate tho notion quite as thoroughly
asl expected this morning."
"I'm afraid I did not, darling,"
said young Mrs. Fisher. "But I ran
ran over to mamma's, and she was so
enthusiastic over it."
"Was she? was she?" cried the hus
band in amazement. "I fancied that
she would rather oppose it, "
"Oh! you don't know mamma,"
said Berenice. "Josiah, while you are
doing it, why not get a cottage and a
cow and chickens? I would like to
milk, and mako butter, and hunt for
eggs. And wo might havo a few pigs. "
"We'll begin by degrees," said Mr.
"I suppose we'll have to, Josiah,"
said Berenice ; "but I'm wild to take
things in hand. Pay the servants up
to the end of their months to-morrow,
and pack them off, and you'll have
nice, homemade cooking right away."
"Dear me!" said he, "I shall spend
most of my time watching you at work,
in a little white apron, with your
sleeves rolled up."
"Ob, how nice!" sho cried, kissing!
him. "Oh, make haste about it, Jo
Josiah obeyed. By the following
night the servants had all departed.
Only Berenice remained in the house,
though sho had a visit from her moth
er. The table was set for a grand
dinner, and as Mr. Fisher opened the
door a small figure appeared at the
head of the basement stairs,
"Who's that," he cried.
"Your little wife," was the reply.
Berenice's face was adorned with
smears and smudges, so w?ro her
bands, so was her white apron.
"Some accident, darling?" be cried,
"No, love," answered Berenice.
"Why do you ask?"
He did not like to tell her that she
had a dirty face, so he laughed, and
as sho threw herself into his arms em
braced her like a very knight of cour
Retiring to his own room to look in
the glass, he found that the three
kisses that she had imprinted on his
cheeks and brow had left their mark
there. He put his hand to the pol
ished space on the top of his head,
and found it sticky, and his usually
immaculate shirt bosom had the marks
of ten tiny black fingers upon it.
It took him some time to make his
toilet, and when he descended dinner
was on tho table, and Berenice was
striking the gong iv ?ar-splitting fash
"X was so afraid you would let your
wifelet's first dinner grow cold," she
"Not likely, love," ho replied.
"But don't you need a glance in the

my dear," she answered, "and simply
be domestic. If you are pleased,
there is no ono else to see, you know ;
besides, I must wait on you. Will
"I? Ob, certainly!" said Mr.
Fisher. "Certainly. This is-"
"Soup, love," said Mrs. Fisher. "Of
course wo have soup. I served every
thing at one time. But wc have
courses all the same."
The fluid which Mr. Fisher tastou
somewhat resembled dishwater; bu*
he forced a smile, and thought he
would "try the tish." The next in
stant a creature of the sea lay before
him, much as it came from the water,
save that it was covered with a very
rancid butter sauce. It had not been
opened ; its head, tail and scales re
"It does not seem quite right, some
how," said Berenice.
"Next time have it cleaned, love,"
eaid her husband, playfullv. "And
after all, beef is ?ho great reliance.
Where is the beef?"
"Before you, dear," said Mrs.
Fisher. "Shall I turn the gas up
The husband made no remark. He
turned a ball of burned bone and meat
about with his fork, tried to out a few
scraps, gave it up as a bad job, and
"Oh, Josiah, doesn't it suit you?,:
asked Berenice, with pleading glances.
"Is it overdone, dear?"
"I'm afraid it is, a little," said Mr.
Fisher. "But I've no doubt the next
conrse will amply compensate. What
have you given me, my angel?"
"Apple pie," said Berenice, handing
him a largo plate, on which lay a large
"The unfortunate husband took one
mouthful, then said, meekly:
"I'll try tho pudding, dear."
"Pudding!" laughed Mrs. Fisher.
"That "is my home-made bread, fresh
from the oven. Try a piece."
"No, no ! I've eaten quite heartily
already!" cried poor Fisher. "I'll
smoke a bit."
"Oh, dear!" screamed Berenice,
"my after-dinner coffee-I forgot it."
"The very thing, love," said Mr.
While she was gone, howerer, he
6tayed the demands of hunger with
biscuits from the sideboard, and sat
beaming upon her as she re-entered
with an extra smudge on her nose and
a scorch on her apron, carrying a tray
loaded with coffeo pot and cups.
"Now I will show you the sort o?
coffeo your little wife can make," said
she, passing ? cup for him.
He took it, tasted it, and beamed on
her again, then ho said :
"A little weak, my dear. By the
way, did you grind the beans?"
She shook her head.
"Does one grind coffee?" she asked.
I "Always," said tho husband.
"I'm so sorry," said Berenice. "But
now I'll get my little note book and
you can tell me just how you fancy
things. The soup stronger ?"
"Yes," he nodded.
"The fish?" she inquired.
"Well, you must tell them to ?end
the fish well cleaned," he said. "The
beef moderately done, and, lest yon
should have too much to do, buy
baker's bread-and pastry."
"Viever!" 6he answered, solemnly.
"I know a housewife's duty better.
Give you baker's bread and things !
Never, my love. And the coffeo must
be grouud, I remember."
"Yes," ho said, helping her to get
the dishes together and put them on
tho dumb-waiter ; "grind tho coffee,
"And it was a lovely little dinner
for me to cook, wasu't it?" qneried
the black and greasy object, whom he
could scarcely recognize as his dainty
Berenice, approaching him with up
raised lips. "Kiss rae ten times."
He did it. "And isn't it so lovely to
be alone together-I doing everything
to mako home happy?"
"Delightful!" said Mr. Fisher, as
ho polished himself surreptitiously
with a napkin. "I'm going out for a
few minutes, pet."
He did. His goal was a restaurant.
During his absence Berenice admitted
her mother at the kitchen door.
"Well?" asked the latter.
"I shall love Josiah better all my
life!" said Berenice. "He has been
an angel ! Oh, what a mess I served
him ; and he smiled it through. My
programme is ready for to-morrow.
I mean to offer him a dinner, after a
receipt of my own, serving everything
with sugar instead of salt. The cof
fee will bo ground into powder, and
I shall put peppermint into my pud
ding by mistake, and mako more of
my delicious bread. And I have pre
pared to make au omelet for break
fast to-morrow, and ono of the eggs is
addled, lt is dreadful, when I can
cook 6o beautifully. But I shall
always adore Josiah after this; his
patience is so beautiful. He has never
blamed me for what he believed to bo
my innocent mistake.
"It war. tho only way-tho only
way," said Mrs. Royal, as she bade her
daughter good-night. "Go on as you
have begun. I adrise a suet pudding
and fried oysters-scorched oysters
have an unequaled flavor, my dear.':
Mrs. Boyal returned home.
Three days passed. On the fourth
her daughter and son-in-law appeared
at her door. Berenice was beaming
with smiles, Mr. Fisher gravo beyond
"We have como for a little advice,
dear madam," ho said.
"A nice receipt for plum-pudding,"
said Mrs. Boyal.
"No," cried Mr. Fisher. "I think

lightful dream of living quite without

Mrs. Royal. "And how docs it suc

nice, "lam improving so fast! I
made him mince-pie to-day, and home
is like Arcadia."
"Precisely, darling," said Mr.
Fisher; "but I don't havo enough of
your society. You live in tho kitchen,
covered, my dearest, with pot-black.
You are working too hard. Besides, I
begin to understand, since you ironed
my shirts, sweetest, that laundry work
is a specialty."
"But I shall learn in time," said
Mr3. Fisher. "I only scorched four
of your shirts; and my home-made
bread is delicious. And, oh ! I am so
anxious to make home all it should bo
-to carry out Josiah's lovely dream.
Mamma, como and dine with us to
morrow, and seo if I have not some
littlo talent for cooking."
"That is a good idea," said Mr.
Fisher. "I shall unavoidably bo away
from home; but I think, little wife,
your dear mamma will see that my
idea was, perhaps, too Arcadian ; and
wo might get tho servants back, aud
see wifio in her pretty dresses again."
"I always tell my daughter to do as
her husband wishes,"said Mrs. Royal ;
"but of course I will dine with Bere
She did. It was a very good little
dinner; but the next day found the

Carbolic Acid Causes Agonizing Dcalh.

friend, the Franklin street physician,
"that six out of ten would-be suicides
now resort to that most horrible of all
deadly doses, carbolic acid. It canses

agony than any deadly doso I can
mention. Yet its popularity contin

unfortunate members of the half-world
who have become weary of lifo and
seek the comforts of tho grave. The
antidote? Ob, an antidoto after the
acid has been swallowed is of little
avail. A mixture of flour and watet
should be given, also mucilaginous
drinks, I onco had a patient recover
after taking a small quantity of the

Ashore the Scotch fishermen is the
laziest of operatives, lolling about the
wharves and harbor corners with his
bandi* invariably deep down in his
"breeks" pockets, his women folk
meanwhilo doing most of the work,
TI and toiling along bent nearly double
under their heavy creel loads of fish.
Well does Jenny, Oldbuck's serving
wench, put it: "As 6une as thc keel
o' tho coble touches the sand, never a
bit mair will the lazy fisherloons work
but tho wives mauu kilt their coats,
and wade into the surf to tak the fish
ashore." Their method of baiting tho
lines with a multitude of hooks is very
t j neat and pretty to watch, the wholo
11 being arranged so systematically. In
this branch of shore labor the men do
sometimes like a share.
Some of tho fishing villages along
the north and east seaboard of Scot
land aro singularly quaint and pic
turesque, Netherlandish almost in
their details, worthy studies for a
Buy8da?l or a Van de Velde. Tho
rows of little split fish skewered on
sticks or triangular lath frames nailed
along the cottage walls are quito dis
tinctive features. So also are the cot
tages themselves, with the vermilion,
pan-tiled roofs and outlyingstairways ;
but these aro fast disappearing and
giving place to a modern 6tyle of
tenement, which makes ono miss tho
Old World forms and warm color.
Well were it, however, if primitive
dirt and archaic scavengering could in
many cases make v?ay for moro mo
dern sanitary arrangements.
Tho fisher folk of both sexes are
very commonly of a serious, inscrut
able cast of countenance, generated, I
suppose, by tho precarious nature and
constant risks of thc seafaring occupa
tion. "It's no fish ye're buying,"
quoth the masterful Maggie to Monk
barns, "It's men's lives." The men
do, indeed, carry their lives in their
hands, and it were strange if this did
not give a certain solemnity and God
fearing set to their characters. Tho

the gray matter has room enough to

is an antediluvian notion that the

Engraving by Dynamite.
Some officers at the naval station at
Newport were testing a new fuse. In
some way a small dried leaf had slip
ped in between the dynamite cartridge
and the iron block on which the cart
ridge was fired, and a perfect imprint
of the leaf was left in the metal. The
discovery was afterwards used in dec
orative work, and the process is found
so accurate in operation that even the
veins in tho petals of flowers can be
reproduced in metal.

The Christian Endeavor convention
which meets in Boston, Mass., July
10th-15th, has already aroused a great
deal of interest. The committee of
arrangements have been granted the
use of Boston common for a big open
air meeting of a patriotic meeting July
4th. Governor Greenhalge, Dr. Don
ald McLaurin of Detroit, Dr. S.
Smith, the author of "America," and
several other prominent persons will
be present and speak.
Dr. Smith is to write a special hymn
for the convention. Tho singing at
the common meeting will be by a choir
of 2,0% voicer, assisted by an immense
orchestra. Fully fifty thousand Chris
tian Endeavorers will take port in the
meeting, in addition to the outsiders
who will be attracted by the novelty
of the occasion.
Like an open book,
our faces tell the
talc of health or dis
ease. Hollow cheeks
and sunken eyes,
listless steps and
tell of wasting de
some place in the
body. It may be one
place or another, the
cause is generally
traceable to a com
pure blood, and im
^ pure blood starts
in the digestive organs.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
purifies the blood, stimulates digestive
action, searches out disease-germs wher
ever they exist and puts the whole body
into a vigorous, strong and healthy con
dition. It builds up solid, useful flesh,
rubs out wrinkles, brightens the eyes
and makes life really worth living.
