On a railroad train no cards. A sec
tion of a sleeping-car of the night express
which left Pittsburg Friday eveaing was
occupied by a lady, who had informed the
conductor that upon the arrival of the
train at Harrisburg she expected to meet a
beautiful young man. ito was an the
world to her, she explained, with down
cast eves, and he would be accompanied
by a minister. The train bowled into the
depot at 8:50 a. in- and bridegroom and
minister entered the bridal-car. The con
ductor shouted "All aboard ;" the train
thundered on through night; the porter
held a lantern, by the light of which the
minister read a brief marriage service, and
the young couple, who stood before him
holding on the seats and more or less to
each other, were declared one. Not long
afterward the eastern sky was streaked
with pink and gray; anon a morning news
paper was cried in the car, and ere a great
while a train-boy stared the travelers out
of countenance and murmured, "Peanuts
and lozengcis." Their wedding journey
had begun. N. T. Tribune.

THE BACK HAUL
Tketinm, the Uatter awd the Kiteh-

False hair haviug become recognized as
a necessity of the modern female exist
ence, it may be of interest to know how
this constantly increasing want is sup
plied. Live hair (bought "on fool" to use
Ihc technical term of" the trade) consti
tutes but a very small percentage of the
stock in market, as, there are few who
wish to part with their locks for money,
and those who have superfluous locks to
spare grow rewcr and tewer every year.
When second-hand tresses were needed
merely to furnish wigs for a few elderly
ndies, agents lotind the peasant maids of
Auvergene and Brittany. The present de
mand, however, greatly -exceeds the sup
ply, and it is asMcrtcd that l'aris alone
uses more than all the available crop in
France, and that Marseilles (the irreat cen
tre of traffic in hair) deals with Spain, the
Orient, and the two Sicilies lor forty tons
a year or dark hair, or which she makes
05,000 chignons annually. Under the
name of "dead hair" are classed the
"combings" which thrifty servant girls
save up and sell, the clippings of barber
shops, faded curls, worn out switches, etc
The scavengers of every city, both at
home and abroad, value nothing short of a
silver spoon among the refuse, so much as
the snarl ot combings, however dirty, as
it will find a ready sale. Such savings
are afterwards washed with bran and pot
ash, carded, sifted, - classed, and sorted,
and then made into cheap front curls,
puffs and chignons that abound in the
market. Much of this enters into the
cheaper grades of the 850,000 "pieces"
annually made in france, or which enor.
mous trade England is said to be the best
customer, and America almost as good.
Late reports of the commerce of Swatow,
China, shows that a large export trade in
"dead hair" gathered in the stall of bar
bers, sprang up in 1073. during wmcu
year 18,800 pounds were exported to Eu
rope, in 1Q75 the export or this rciuse
arose to 134,000 pounds, with a commer
cial value of over $25,000. It is an un
doubted fact, too, that the pauper corpses
are often despoiled of their hair to meet
this same demand of an increasing com.
merce. Those, then, who sport other than
their own natural locks, can never be sure
whether these are redolent of the sepulchre.

Field Caltare of Cabbage.
As the raising of cabbage has been quite
difficult the past few years, and any meth
od that secures success must lie of benefit
if known to the public. I have yearly
cultivated about one-half acre of cabbage
the past few years, some years with sue
cess and others entirely failing, on account
of clubfoot and Uie worm. I hod almost
come to the conclusion that it was time
and labor lost to try and raise a crop of
cabbage. My greatest enemy was club-
root, developed in the seed bed, so that the
plants at the tune oi setting out would ire
quently show the disease badly. My at
tention was directed to the raising ot the
plants, to get them free of disease if possi
