superior wisdom and intelligence. The
presence of the MStci on terms of per

pletely meelb a popular demand which
the civilization of the age is unwilling
to grant, and while the Anthonys and
Woodhtills ate clamoring for their
rights, making a-suullb upon congress
and war upon the constitution, the
founders ot thi older have wi-elj met
the demand through the fashion de--trojiug
influence of the grange.
The pifM-iieceof the sisters on all

as well as those for social culture is
productive ot the most beneficial le--,ult-.

the most genteel ciiciiui-peclion, and
also that tlie air in the grange, even in

'Article five, as now worded, cauc
perhaps more trouble and vcxatioi
than any other. I refer to the claust
which reads, "any person interested ii
agricultural pursuits.' Tlii clause i
capable of such varied construction
that much confu-ien and misunder
standing have resulted. During the
infancy of the order, when members
were few, our strength puny, and oui
chief aim simply social and education
al, there was no danger in construct
iug thi clause liberally, and admitting
nearly all who would pay the fee and
consent to join such a weak and un
popular institution: but now all these
circuin-tanccs are changed. To be a
Patron of Husbandry is no longer ot
doubtful propriety, but the proude-t
in the land are kuocking at our doors.
The order has been recognized as one
of the great powers of the land, and
tlie gates are beseiged from ocean to
ocean by hordes of speculators, dema
gogues, small politicians, grain buyers,
cotton factors and lawyer-, who sud
denly discover that they are "interest
ed in agricultural pursuits," but only
as a hawk is interested in tho sparrow.
You would do well to give ths matter
a most careful review, ami by law de
termine the proper construction of the
constitution, so we may beablcto keep
our gates elced against those whose
only inteiest consists in what they can
make out of us. To have such admit

evil, and sow seed1, of internal strife.'"
A Reptile at Homo in a Young La
dy's Stomach It Comes up into
There i- a oung lady living w ithin
a mile aud a quarter of Christiana, who
is alllicted as singularly a was the cel
ebrated .Mi-s Godscy, the "sleeping
bcautv." Kor four ears pa-t she ha
been "sulk-ring with violent fainting
spells, that come on periodically, and
arc produced by the strangling caused
bv some kind of a reptile which comes
up into her throat. She is choked to
mk-Ii an extent thai her muscles become
rigid, her extremities cold, the pupils
of" her eves dilated, and the skin
breaks on her hands and face, and she
is, in all other particulars, thoroughly
convulsed. She is only revived by the
reptile itself being, as it is thought,
partially choked, withdrawing itself
into the stomach.
The reptile has at previous times
been seen by different persons. (Jn
one occasion' aMcthodist preacher was
visiting at the house of her parent-,
when she was e-ii:d with one of her
usual attacks, and the parisitical ob
ject even came out of her month and
was grasped by tho minister, lteing
of a er supe'rlitious turn of mind,
-he had" conceived the idea that its
death was her death, and refused to
have it removed, although that could,
at that time, h.ne been easily accom-pli-hed.
The minister avowed that
the reptile ltll as com aim unnuy .is
,tn other snake, but that it offered no
particular rc-i-tance when he clutched
it with his hand. When it made its
appearance outside the month it curled
its head under the chin, but when let
loose it went immediately down the
vouug lady's throat again. It frequent
ly comes up into the mouth, and the
voting lady says whenever it docs so

ilr. Beocher's Idea of Signs and of
Some of tho Vagaries of Con

me of his recent sermon:!, "if they get

ir put on a stocking wrong side out.
interpret it a a ign of something or
ther. When I wa a lad and went
hestnutiiiL', von couldn't have induced
nc to craw I through the lurs because
hat was a sign that I wouldn't tret any
chestnuts. Docs God sleep on Friday?
vVhy, if he should call up all these su
perstitions that clinir to you. it would
tiake you blush. Now," I dou't deny
that even these superstitions are bet
ter than cold skepticism. I had rather
rub olTthe uneatable parts ofcorn with
my hands, as the disciples did, than to
ha've no corn to rub. Hut my concep
tion, is that 'luck' means the right op
eration of causes to produce good ef
fects. That little devil called 'luck
doesn't go Hying about blindly, drop
ping gold on some people and pewter
on others." Speaking of dreams and
their siiriiitieaiice, he said : "1 imagine
that many of the dreams in which men j
attach Ihc most importance came from
overeating or overdrinking, I uo not
beli6ve, either, that a man's dreams
are a reflection of hi3 real nature. 1
have broken open more houses and i
stolen more uionev in mv dreams than
Lever expect to sec awake; yet I be
lieve I had rather die than steal. 1
have been a murderer in my dreams,
and startled up trembling oiitofa vain
effort to hide the body. My idea is that
when the upper, higher part of your
brain is asleep, the lower basilar part
is half awake, unrestrained, and your
dreams are a report from your animal
faculties. When the lower" part of your
brain is asleep, and the upper part ac
tive, you dream such dream- that when
von awake you try to go to sleep again
"to liui-h th'cin. AH this stuff about
dreams, luck, signs and coments I class
as outgrowths of conscience not guid
ed by clear preceptioiis,"
This brought him to a discus-ion of
phaes of conscience. "I know men,"
lie said, "who wouldn't shave on bun
day, but would black their boots.
Then I know some w ho would shave
on Sundav, but wouldn't black their
boot. And 1 know others who would
not do either, on Sunday, but would
shave their neighbors awfully on -Monday.
When I went to school I boarded
with Dr. Langboin. and he was a good
man, for an icicle can be good. 1 could
hook it down his back stairs, o off
hunting, return and recite my lesson
from a slip in my hand. Noiv the
bread that was left over at the com
munion services in church was sent
over for Dr. I.angbein's table, and,
while I could deceive him as 1 have
told you, I couldn't eat a morsal of
that "bread because it had been used as
a holy symbol." He considered the
precepts of the bible an exact and re
liable guide for conscience, although,
as he -aid, "There wasn't one of the
patriarchs who didn't live Mich a life

pasrne are disposed of, and millions of
dollars' worth of dry troods and jewel
rv arc nut on exhibition, lttit the
beautiful gatherings of cultivated peo-i
pie in the rooms or some intellectual
and brilliant lady for conversation in
literature, art. "politics, and society,
where wit meet wit and the social in
stincts weave their fa-cinations into
spells that are unforgetable, have never
got naturalised in our society. We
have publicity without polish, aud the
cost and excitement of miscellaneous
crowds without any of their compcu-sation--.
We shake" a bushel of tlints
together without striking a single
spark. The consequence is that the
best people have come to regard par
ties as a nuisance and society a- a bore.
They do their best to eseape'the former
as aii infliction, and hide from the lat
ter as best they can. The receptions
begin in stupidity and end in dissipa
tion. Thcv ure liiore and more given
up to mouthing and millinery, daiicinir
and drinking, spendiuir on the one
hand aud storing on the other, full
stomachs and empty head-. One rea
son of this gcnerallV admitted failure
is that so few of our American women
havc a genius for intellectual hospital
ity or have acquired the high and tine
art entertainment on a literary and
artistic plane. Conversation is not so
much a lo-t art as an art that ha- never
been attempted. Our ladies gabble,
they do not talk. Thep prattle w lieu
we "expect them to talk. If they vent
ure into the higher fields of literature
and art. it is almost invariably ou stilts,
and the li-tcner i? kept in agony lest
they tumble until they actually eouie
down. Somehow American wealth
ha- never shown much of an ambition
to social culture and literary enter
tainment. The rich man buys uphol
stery and hor-cs'. The inilioiiaire run
to broun stone ai-d wine, unless Hit
political cra?e happen- to seize him,
and then he spends on caucuses and
convention what other and wiser men
throw aivtv on their full bloods and
yatchcs. The idea of making a beauti
ful meeting place for wi-e and cultured
men and women, the real aristocracy
of a city ptms never to occur to them.
One of our well known literary la
die nuts her father's elegant residence
to its best uses bv hav inir three or four
brilliant receptions every season, of
poets, csavist, jouriiali-ts, aillsls,
college profeors, and e'elebritesof
various professions and walks of life.
There is something exquisitely grace
ful and civilizing in the civility. One
ofourino-t cultivated lady joiiruali-f-
onens her narlors thi- season for in
formal reception- of her literary aud
artistic friend-, thu- coulcs-ing. the
need of an clement that does not exist
as yet, anil a want that must be some
how met. The higher and liner social
iii-tinct are early gaining strength.
Our culture began'r.t the top, but it is
working downward from thebr.iiirto
the heart. The humanities are more
alive and hungry'to-day than ever. The
intellectual clas"es w hii live in a legion
of thought and sentiment, and deal
with ideas and their expression-, re
quire more congenial and stimulative
companionship than they find at pres
ent. Genius and culture, 'wit and
nidom, crave a meeting place. The
clubs, poor as they are, owe th"ir great
success to the fart 'that they minister to
a deep and growing want in American
socitey. Why should there not be a
club composed of cultured men niid
women, with apartments suited for it
purposes, whore the member could
meet without restraint for an evening's
conver-ation, and to which they could
intiodiiee their literary and artist
friends? Such an association would
be far more popular with a certain
chifcs of cultured people than any pri
vate reception, however brilliant and
attractive it might be. It would be
more democratic, mire-trained and free
from that sense of obligation and favor
which attaches to all private hospital
ity. It would not interfere with the
private eittortainiuenl, but might pre
pare the way for private reception- of
a higher and more satisfying order.
Perhaps the American "salon" i to
come out of some such association a
this, in w hich both sexes meet on equal
ground, and will differ from that
of Pari in its greater freedom and
total absence from thr feeling of per
sonal obligation. Still, in the private
mau-ion or the apartments of a club,
the charm of the "alon" must be al
most purely personal, and tnut coin"
from the ta-to and gonitis of some mi
tierior woman. A nonentitv cannot
