few months after the danolng malady of 1374
had made its appearance at Aix-la-Cbapelle,
it broke out at Cologne, where the number of
those possessed amounted to more than fire
hundred, and about the lame time at Meti,
the streets of; whioh place are said to' have
been filled with eleven hundred dancers.
Peasants left their plows,-meohanlos their
workshops, housewives their domestie duties,
to join the wild revels, and this rich eommer
eial oity became the scene of the most ruinous
disorder. Secret desires were exoited, and bat
too often found opportunities for wild enjoy
ment; and numerous beggars, stimiluted by
vice and misery, availed themselves of this
new oomplalnt to gain a temporary livelihood.
Girls and boya quitted their parents, and serv

Gangs of Idle vagabonds, who understood
how to imitate to the life the gestures and

spreading this disgusting spasmodic disease
like a plague, for in maladies of this kind the
snsoeptible are lufeoted as easily by the ap
pearance as by the reality. At last it was
found necessary to drive away these mischiev
ous guests, who were equally inaccessible to
the exorcisms of the priests and the, remedies
of the physicians. It waa not, however, until
after four months that the Rhenish eltiea were
able to auppresa these impostures, whioh bad
so alarmingly increased the original evil. Io

Cabs or tbs Fibt. Hall's Journal of Bealtk
says that the tendency of India-rubber shoes
is- to .make the fast eeid, thus endangering
the health; hence they are useful only in
walking when the ground is muddy or sloahy
with melting snow. . In these eases they are
invaluable. When rubbers are on the feet
persons .should keep moving, and remove
them on entering the house. If the rubbers
have been on the feet several hours, both
sheet and stookings are necessarily damp by
the condensation and confinement of the per
spiration; therefore, all should be removed
add the naked foot held to the fire till warm
and dry in every part ' The samel rule holds
good in relation to leather boots and shoes
made water proof. For common purposes
leather boots and shoes are the. best, If kept
well blacked, with several renewals of dry
socks during the day, if the feet perspire pro
fusely. A Tusoax Throxi to ii Pobohabbd, The
Florenoe correspondent of the Providence
Journal saya that the story is still eurrent in
Florence, and is more and more credited, that
the Grand Ducal family is going to attempt to
buy its war back to the Tnsoan throne with
gold. They are coining at Paris a million of
dollars in gold, with the head of toe young
Ferdinand IV aa T).ka. - After the Congrena,
whioh Is to decide in his favor, this money is
to be aoattered among the Tusoans, and with
it oblivion of all past sins is to be purchased.
The family of Lorraine is rich enough to

Despicable ar the praetioe which goes by the

a kind of fortune telling whioh It not only

when we tee a child obedient to bit or her
parents or teachers, or any one else .toward
whom, the subordinate relation hat become
necestary, we have ne hesitation in predicting
that good fortune will aoeompany suoh a child
Into early manhood or womanhood.and insure
a fair startjin adnlt life. If the ease be that
of an , honest, energetlo young man, who has

without much difficulty. So with regard to
those who have chosen a profession as the

they will be very apt to continne to de so, and
