took them up. but at last ?aid them down
with a sijih, as alie said: 'I am afr;.id

'Well, my child, said the traveller,'
as he rose, and pot his sun-browned

profit. -Csa yan give me a half hoar ?"
"Well, Doctor, mach has been writ?

most haUhfvL What would you ad?
"Wheat, all things considered* may
be reckoned the most nourishing at

"The bran, which ia the part first
separated from the fine floor, is the most
nutritious part of the grain, and the
glan which some adopt of leaving the
ran with the floor, sad thoa make tba
bread with the whole flour, is the best
and most healthful."
"How aboot digestion 7"
"The cosrse bread digests the more
quickly. The woody fibres of thc bran
act mechanically io dividing and sepa?
rating the mass of food, thos reoderiog
it more readily penetrated by the juices
or solvent fluids of the stomach. Coarse
bread is, therefore, easier of digestion as
well as more nutritions."
"What do yon think cd corn tread?"
"Indian meal possesses more oil. and
is, therefore, moro fattening and mote
heating than any other of our common
grains. It is not, therefore well to eat
it largely io hot weather, lt is, however,
a good article of food, aod eorn cakes
are not to ba refused. It ia good, but not
equal to wheat bread "
"Doctor, what ia your opinion about
mixing different ingredients tn the bread
"Do you mean the use of dfferent
kiods of flour or meal io tho same
loaf?" * '
"I think well of it. Potatoes, rice,
or Indian meal add tr.uch to the palat?
ableness of the wheat flour. The loaf in
this way is more moist, snd hence more
rclishable, while it is equally nutriti?
.'Wh'ch do you think is more health?
ful, 'bakers' bread' or 'booie made
"Thia is a delicate question, but I
am quite free to answer you Bakers'
bread is often adulterated with alum or
some other *ub*tauoe to improve the
color. There is wore nourishment in
the good old fashioned home loaf. 1
would strongly advise families to eat
bread made at home "
"/? it well to eat warm bread ?"
"Ii is oot. Warm bread packs in the
stomach ; besides, it melts the butter
with which it is spread too rapidly, thu*
rendering the latter more iudiges iblc."
"What about old or new bread ?*'
"Many regard new bread as more rel
ishable, and hence choose it, but my ad
rice is, never begin on a loaf ontil it is
at least one day old. Thc stomach will
not theo be so likely to be over cram?
med. Old bread is more easiiy di?
"From what yoo have said, Doctor,
io our previous conversations, I judge
that yon think well of a mixed diet of
animal and vegetable food V
Moat certainly ; bat there are some
good general rates with regard to such
mixed diet: one of these is that the
larger proportion of our food should be
vegetable ; and another, that tho warmer
the aeasoa the greater should be the
vegetable proportion of oar food. The
advantages of mixed diet are very great.
Food ought to contain a duo admixture
of nitrogenous, and carbonaceous ele?
ments-the former supplied by animal
aod the latter by vegetable food. In
this way only can there be the right
proportions of the proper elements, viz.,
lat or oil, starch or sugar, and fibrin or
"Doyou recommend fish?"
"Fish is healthful, and generally
cheaper than other meats, lt contains
a Urger amount of fibrin. It is especially
healthful in sommer."
"What of eggs?"
"They are very nutritious, and easily
digested. The white or albomenous
portion has a very cloie relatioo to fibrin
or gl?teo. The yelk is a ki~d of albu?
men mixed with yellow oil, the latter io
"Should eggs ha hard er soft boiled ?"
"If eaten soon after boiling, neither
is difficult of digestion ; soft boiled eggs
are soonest digested. Let those, how?
ever, who prefer to have the eggs cook?
ed through (not hard) do so ; uoiess tha
stomach is exceedingly delicate no in?
jury will be experienced. Boiled egg?
are preferable to fried eggs." .
Dr. Chalmers says the mere lapse of
years is opt life. To eat, drink, aod

THE JURUA THAGEDT.
CHICAGO, July 8.-The coroner's in?
quest over the lynched man dieted the
following: Mary Mere, mother of the
child, testified as follows : &y husband,
Martin Mera, whipped my son Martin,
aged ten yeera, two weeks ago Tuesday
night. My babe was born that day, and
I did not see the whipping; it was dooe
in another room ; I heard the blows and
heard the child beg for mercy. The
child went to bed about ten o'clock.
The belt morning the child came to my
bedroom, followed by his father who
was whipping him very hard with s
black snake horse whip. The child
dodged around the room, to aroid the
blows, and begged for mercy. The
child was completely naked, his father
having Compelled him to atrip himself
Iiis face walswollen Irom the whipping
he had received the night before. His
father whipped him very hard for ten or
fifteen minutes. At last he stopped, and
told the child to put on his shirt. He
made ac effort to do so and failed. Iiis
father repeated the order*, when the boy
said, "I can't see ? I can't see 1" "You
can't see it," responded his father. "No,
father, I can't see you ; I can't see you.
I feel like dying." The father then
rubbed the boy with spirits and forced
some down his throat. The child raised
his hands, moved his lips and expired.
Mera thoo took the body and put it
under the bcd, where the sick mother
was lying, and it remained there uutil
evening, when he buried it. The testi?
mony of the boy's sister is still more
Sarah Mera,'}daughtcr of the murder
er, aged 14, testified that her father
often whipped her brother very severely
with a horse whip. Tuesday two weeks j
ago he brought mj brother io and said
that he had not worked, and whipped
and knocked him down twice. Father
continued to whip him, and said he would
whip him till he could not standup;
that he would wnip the Hie out of him
Two or three time he would say this,
and brother would plead with father :
"Father, don't whip me any more. Oh,
don't whip me any more." I liked him
Brother went to bed about 10 o'clock.
He said he did not know why father
whipped him so ) he never told stories
only when lather made him. Father
wuuld hay if he didn't own up he had
dote so and ?a, he would whip him;
and. to avoid it, brother would owo to
things he never did. Wednesday I got
op and got breakfast ready. Father! ^'
mse when breakfast was ready, and j
brother cot up, but felt so badly he (
went back to bed. Father made him
.ret up and co out and feed the stock,
?nd when he came back father whipped
him. and sent him to the field. Ile went
fur him and brought him, and made
him take off his clot' es, and then whip?
ped him, and then picked him up and
laid him un the stove. The stove was
hot enough to heat an iron. 1 was
baking biscuit. Father put him on the
?tove twice, brother pleading all the
while, "Father don't burn me " He
screamed very loud ; and the stain stuck
to the stove. His skin came off his
back and his feet and stuck to the stove.
It smelled so that I opened the door and
father immediately shut it. While
brother waa pleading, father said he
would barn bim till enorked. I have
seen father strike mother with his fists
many times. He knocked brother down
several tinier with the butt end of the
whip. I never saw my brother after he
went into mother's room.

The Journal of Commerce replies to
the question of a correspondent : What
proportion of 'hose who succeed in ac
quiring a comp >tcocy io business pur?
suits ultimately rutain it?" The editor
says of those who engage in business on
their own account only three out of a
hundred escape failure, and only five
ont of a hundred succeed io avoiding an
entire collapse of their first effort. Of
those who at some time or other have
in band a reasonable competence, and
may be said to have succeeded io busi?
ness, ninety per cent, are still the sub?
ject* of after reverses of some sort, so
that only ten per cent, of the successful
ones keep their fortune unshaken. No

About a year ago it wax announced
that Profesor Hitchcock, the State
Geologist of New Hampshire, aod
Mr. J. H. Huntington, a graduate oi
Amherst College, the lea nug institution
in this country iu geological scieuce,
wauld winter on Mount Washington for
the purpose of makiog scientific observa
tiona. Mount Washington is a very
desirable place for one wishing to escape
the summer heat and willing to forego
the pleasures of the waienag-pleces?
but in winter, with the thermome'er
fifty-nine degrees below zero, it is not
altogether the best site for a pleasant
home* The climate is as rigorous as
that o? Central Greenland, and vegeta
ble life corresponds with that of Labra?
dor and of regions to the north of
Labrador The clouds which blow over
the summit are often charged with
frost to au extent which makes breath?
ing the air very unpleasant, and from
thc effects of which a full iubalatiou
brings on a fit of coughing* Serve
storms are frequent, aud the wind
travels with a velocity so great that
Prof. Hitchcock on oue occasion found
it necessary to sit with a line rouudj
him in order to keep his position while!
using the anemometer* From the
beginning of November to the close ot j
January there was nota single clear i
day, and iu the next three months I
only one clear day iu each mouth. Noj
gloomier and no more dangerous exist j
euee could be experienced even in the!
Arcticrrgioos, death from the cold or;
the tornado being possible every moment.
The party was composed of six
persons, one of whom was a member ol
the United States signal service, and
two photographers. T-iey lived, to?
gether in a room twenty feet lung,
eleven feet wide, and eight feet high ;
but small as it was, it was difficult,
owing to thc intense coldness of the
Arctic cl.mate, to keep it warm. In
spite of many di.?advatages,_ thc party
remained throughout the winter, doiug
their work maulully amid dangers and
sutferings, and gaiuiug much valuable
