A Magic Dining Room.
Soi months since an English
man named Atkiuson bought a
country place near Pithiviers, in
Franeo. For many wooks there
after earpenters and masons were
busily employed in repairing and
faltering the chateau, and after their
woik had been completed, 'Mr
Atkinson issued invitations for a
large dinner party to all the most
prominent families in the neighbor
hood. The guests arrived at 6
o'clock, and on taking their Feats
at the dinner table noticed with
surprise that there was not oven
one servant to b so n. The sou
was no~mismnifed in silenlt astoish
mont. Whben all 1had4 parftken (of
it the host soun ded a whlistle, and
as if by magic the soiup platois dis
alppoared, and three magnificent
silver platters, each containing a
roast gOose, appeared. Little cries
of ter.(or were heard from the
ladies. Mr. Atkinson took no notice of
his guests surprise, but remarkiig
that it was a very warm evening,
whinstled again, and the whole
ceiling disappeared ; tho host's
black coat v'anshed at the same
momuent, leaving him clothed in a
white suit. Thie guests, alarmed,
were about Lto rise from their chairs,
wheni they found themstelvos, their
cairad the table suddenly raised
five feet from the floor. They, how
ever, were soon lowered again to
the floor, and-they all took refuge
in hasty flight from the demoniac
abode. A judicial investigation wasi
instituted, and it was found that
Mr. Atkinson had ben for Len
years the chief machinist at Covont
Garden Theatre, in London, where
he had amassed a nice little fortune.
The dinner wasR a little freak to)
indulge his fondness for his old
p~ursuit.
A young man in Chicago was

piagno, lobsters, game pie, fruit
cake, tea, chicken salad, whiskey,

jury returned a 'verdict of "Died

Extra copies of the NzEws & HEnRAD
nlwavas on hand.
Importinent 4uestons.
We clip the following from the
Louisville fangfaeturers' and Mer
chants' Advertiser. The points
made in the article strike us as poou
liarly applicable to South Carolina.
The tax-ridden people of this
country, groaning beavi'v unilor their
burdens, are beginning to rou-o from
their slumbers, and from all the
cities in the land we hear cries which
it would be well for those in authori
ty to hood before it is too late. Thun
a correspondent of the Nashville
Commercial and Legal Roporter
asks the following portinent ques
tions :
"'If rents, necessaries of life and
labor came down on account of hard
times, why is not the pay of our
officials reduced in the oity, county,
and State in the same ratio Shall
offico-holders 'alone live in clover ?
Why is it permitted to sell on Sun
day, candy, oranges, nuts and dime
novels, when it is contrary to law to
sell on the same day, flour, meal,
culinary plants, coal and wood ?
"If it costs only twelve cents--4
fair estimate-to food a olty work
house prisoner per day, why do we
pay for his daily sustenanoo forty
cents ?
"If the steward of the city work
ou1e, (the stewardship is vailued as
the most remunerative 'fllce in the
gift of our corporation) receives a
fixed hum for three meals a day for
the prisoners, who authorizes him to
lay the cloth only twice on Sunday,
and set them at table for two meas
only I Is it for the praiseworthy
purpose of teaching them, on the holy
Sabbath, abstemiousness in the use
of food '"
And the St. Louis Commercial, in
an article on the high rents of that
city, says :
"But the landlord claims that even
at the figures above he is not ado
quately repaid for the use of his
capital ; because, says he :
"The great difficulty hero is the
enormous taxation, general and
ipecial. This is the reason why
rents are so high ; taxes steadily
irrowin on real estate, which is
visible, while those who deal i:n
bonds and stock, and loan money at
high rates, escape the taxation
almost entirely.
"I know plenty of delings here,
the rento of which do -not pay fan,
per cent. per annum over taxes,
general and special, insurance and
repairs.
"Let us reduce taxes, by reducing
salaries of officials, by reducing the
numubor of :men in office, etc., and
then landlords can got along and
oven reduce ronts on stores and
dwellings."
Even New York City, with its
immense wealth and resources,
groans under the heavy weight im
posed upon her by reckless extrava
gance, robbery, etc.
The Stockholder says as to mann
factures in the city of Now York,
they have dwindled to loss than one
half their former volume, and in
proof gives a list of specified indus
tries, showing a shrin kago of $172,
000,000 on $292,000,000 in the pro
(uct of that one city, thereby abridg
ing the disbursements for wages and
the trade in materials to that extent.
Troops or No Troops.
The Washington correspondent of
the Baltimore Sun says .
"Senator Patterson of South
Carolina reiterates his opinion that
the use of troops is necessary to so
cure fair elections in the Sonth. He
says there are troop~s enough in the
South new, if they are properly used
to protect the voters. Geon. Grant,
he says, thoroughly understands the
whole question, bnt just as soon as
he lifts his hand a haie anid cry is
'raisedl, in which republicans of the
North join, against the use of troops.
If this prejudlico against protecting(
the voters is allowed to prevail
during the canvass, he does not look
for repubilican successes in any of
the states of the South, except his
own. He says the poor white peo
ple of the South, as weill as the
colored people, would vote the re
publican tieket if ithey wre not
overawed. He says Georgia, which
gives such a democraticomajority, -is
fairly a republican state, and could
bei carried b~y that party if the elec
tions were con dneted properly.
Sen ator Robertson, the colleague of
Mr. Patterson, does Tnt appear to)
concur in these views. He says that he
does not want any troops to be used
in the Sonth."

s.. The Needs -Of .grioulture.
We often hear men talk of the
dullness and stupidity of farming.
But where is there a field of outer
prise that requires so much and so
varioed forothonight as the proper,
cultivation of the soil ? And there
is no field oh the farm that requires
more cultivation than the brain.
The farmer must lay his flans for
years, not only in regard toothe man
nor he would till his soil, but in re
gard to the products and develop
mnont of his farm for greater enpajit.y
in the future. The different qualh
ties of the soil must be studied and
experimonted upon, suiting each
kind of product to its particulgr
soil.
Successful' agriculture must be
controlled by intelligence. Brains
are necessary. A man may rise be
fore day and work till eftor night;
may sow with diligence and roap
with care, btt unless the farm work
is done in the proper Way and at the
proper ti e, the ofdrt iii pat will
be a failure.
In this cognentoliion we n yA 1l at
tention to ti .eneflts derivod oat
agricultitral literaturo. The thie
has arrived When the 'farmer -Wist
be educated for his calling. The age
which we live in and tLhe cir-un
stances surrounding us, domand that
educated minds should become closo
ly connected with rural pursuits.
There is no mistaking the adnoni
tions of the future on this point.
And why should not the husband
man be prepared for his manifold
duties as well and thoroughly as the
lawyer, the doctor or minister '
Surely, no sufficient reason exists.
The lawyer, for instance, is confined
to the statute book, or to long and
well settled decisious ; pricedeutis
his guide, and he follows it because
it is old and universal. The divine
must necessarily confine himself to
the sacred writings and his own
peculiar theology. If he teacies any
thing which caniot be sustained by
them, ho teaches error. The physi
cian continos himself to different
diseases to which the body is heir.
But the agriculturalist uters upon
a fluid without scope or limit. Na
ture, in all her untold amplitude and
boundless resoarch, is still beckon
ing us onward to heights and depths
that seem to know no bounds. She
is not only generous in her gifts, but
S o1i'-RAR hitt laws are
the same over all the earth. The at
mosphero, the clouds, the storms,
the heat and cold are not controlled
by the fitfulness of uncertainty, but
well established rules that she dis
covers only to devotoos. And shall
we be told that it is a waste of time
and money to learn her secrets -

German Women as Smokere.
A German newspaper relates the
following rather ominous incident :
At one of the ralway stations be
tween Cologne and Berlin, a lady
laden with parcels had for some time
anxiously awaited the arrival of the
express. No soonor did it dash into
the station than a. porter, compaus
sionating her weariness, hastily
opened the deor of the first lady'a
carriage he could see, and motioned
her towards it, when she started
back in dismay. A dense cloud of
smoke escaped fromn the complart
mont, within which she- dimly de
scied two female forms in an atti
tuudo of pi-ofound repose. Betweon
the lips of each of - the recumbent
dames lay a small moorschaium, while
the expression of their features de
noted that caln satisfaction she had
so often detected on tile' countenance
of the worthy Herr at home when
smoking his evening l pipo. She
pointed to the. smoke, and gargod in
inquiring horror at the railway ofliciah;
he poinuted to the lable on the car
ringe window anid stared1 blankly
into the coupe. The ease -was not
provided for in the regulations, and
the situation was growing strained,
when a gentleman came forward and

certamn, m a short time, to affect all
the members. Peo ple in the coun
try more readily fall into the habit
of scolding than people in town.
Wormen contract the habit moro
rquently than. men. This may be
because theoy hvonore constantly in

MxasUnm~o DY THE EE.-Yoars ago,
says a oxrespondent, when we went
to'shool in a' little weather beten
kohool house, wht iting contevts
there used to be over the teacher'
favorite exorcise of having the
scholars estimate with .the eye the
size and weight of diffdrent objocts
in the room . He would hold up his
cane, and have each one tell how
long he. thought it was, and it was a
lucky child that could come within
half a foot of the right length. He
would measure an urchin and
then have the scholars try to repro.
duce the measure on., the wall. He
would mark -off an inch-or' foot or
a yard, in some cospicgqus placo,
and then sep how near , aybody
could come to chalking the Oarao
length upon theblackbdtrd. And it
was astonishing how wide astray one
woud ,go.. The fact is, .ur eyeasde
