Love dwells not ill tht sparkling blaze,

His tomh-r lloweretsdare not raise
Their bosoms to the beam;
"When tr!-ruii!t tin moon through latticed
And stars nro shining bright,
He eommciicea with the shadowy hours,
And wooes the silent iiiht.
The dreamy perfume of the rose,
The violet's deeper f itfh.
The music of the rill that flows
In I i i i cl cadence by;
The sweet tonen of some village chime
Oil HWeeter echoes borne
Thene are joys of evening timo,
Which scarcely wait tlie morn.
.Not in the rich ami courtly hall
The heart's pure faith is Kven;
But where the jrrecn-wood shadows fall
Beneath a twilight heaven,
life's crowded pomp and pageant show
ilay darker piissioim move.
Hut holitudu alone can know
The incensa thought of love.
"When worldly cares nre hushed in slyep
Ixve wakes at such tin hour,
Youn hopes their tinsel vigils keep,
And joy resumes Its power;
Thon;:ti niylitin till its dusky state,
Athwart the skies be thrown;
Yt-t beauty's plance can then create
A noontide all her own.

LKICill HUNT ON LADIES KOXNETS
In default of having anything bet
ter to write about in our present iium
ler, we beg lief to remonstrate with
certain bonnets, and other cormities,
with which the ladies put out oureye
niglit in the theaters. The bonnet is
the worst! If you sit right behind
it you shall swallow up the whole
acetic. It makes nothing of a regiment
of soldiers, or a mountain, or a forest,
or a rising sun ; much less of a hero,
or ho insignificant a thing as a cottage
and a peasant's family. You may sit
at the theater a whole evening and
not see the leading performer. L,is
ton's face is a glory obscured. The
persons in your neighborhood, provid
ed they have no bonneted ladins be
fore them, shall revel in the jocose
looks of l'arren or Dowton. and uro-
vokingly reflect the merriment in their
own countenances, while you sit and
rauro in the shade If you endeavor to
strain a point, and peep by the side of
it, ten to otic since fato notoriously
interferes in little things, and delights
in being "contrary," as the young la
dies say ten to one but the bonnet
fieizes that very opportunity of jurk
ing sideways, and cutting olFyour re
sources. We have seen an enthuniai-
tic play-goer settle himself in his seat
and evidently congratulate himself at
the evening ho was about to onjov,
when a party of ladies, swimming in
to tho scats before hi in, have been the
ruin of all his prospects. Even a head
dress, without the bonnet, shall force
von to nlav at bo-neen with the. stave
r 1 x
half tho evening, now extinguishing
the face of some lavonte actress, and
now abolishing a (Jencral or a inur
deror. The other night at the Queen's
Theater we sometimes found ourselves
obliged to peep at tho Freemasons in
a very symbolical manner through the
loops ot a lady s hows. J5ut the bon
net is the enormity. And wo are sor
rv to say that tho fair occupants who
sit inside- them, like the lady in
tno lobster,- too otten Jdiow a
want of gallantry in refusing to take
them oil ; lor, as wo havo said more
than once, we hold gallantry, like all
the other virtues, to be a thiMg mutual,
and of both sexes; and that a lady
shows as much want of gallantry in
taking advantage of the delicacies ob
served toward her by the gentlemen,
as a man does who presumes upon the
gentleness of a lady. We felt, tho
other night, all tho reforming spirit
of our illustrious predecessors of tho
Tatlct and Spectater roused within
us, and in tho same exact proportion
to our regard lor the sex upon witness
ing the following prodigious fact: A
ladv, who came with a party into one
of tho boxes at Covent (Jarden, joined
very heartily in expressing her disap
probation of ROtno person in a seat
below her, who was dilatory in taking
olf his hat. It chanced that this lady
got in the very seat that lie had occu
pied, and her bonnet turning out t
be a much greater blind than her hat,
what was tho astonishment and men i
inent of the occupants upon li tiding
that she was still less accommodating
than tho gentleman ? Nothing could
induce nor to pertorui the very same
piece of justice which sho had joined
in demanding Irom tho other.
"We are aware that in modern, as in
ancient, theaters, ladies come to be
seen hs wen as to see. iut wo are
desirous that they should not pay
themselves so ill a compliment as to
confound thwir dresses with them
selves. it is the bonnets that are
seen in theo cases, and not the ladies.

part of the spectacle; but who cares
o look upon these irrwat lumps of
auzo and silk? Something is to be
Mowed to fashion ; but tho wearers

take their bonnets off, that thev "can

besides the "will not," which "can
not" so often signifies, that their heads
are not prepared to be scon that their
hair is not dressed in a proper man
nor; out u wouiu do easy to come
with it so dressed ; tho bonnet is not
tho only head-dress in fashion; and,
above all, it would be a graceful and
a stMisiblo thing to remember that in
coming to a place where tho object is
to enjov pleasure, their own capability
f pleasure is intensified in consider
ing that of others. We never feel
angry with a woman except when
sho persists in doing something to
diminish the delight we ake in com
plimenting the sex.
Kenton Taxing District.
"Wo have been waiting several weeks,
in order to see tho results following
the abolishment of our charter and
the establisnmeut ot a taxing district
of the second-class, beforo speaking of
it in tho columns of the Courier.
Sufiieient time having elapsed to
thoroughly test if, we now take great
plcasur in proclaiming to the world
tho result of the action of a majority
of our citizens. Tho moral tone of the
community has improved greatly,
and even those who opposed tho act
are beginning to appreciate it, and it
is becoming more popular every day.
It is a matter of general comment
that on Saturdays, when large num
bers of people are on. our streets, the
Htnio.t good feeling prevails aud ex
cellent order is maintained, while
when wo had whisky saloons wo had
drunkenness, debauchery, swearing,
and a host of other debasing and dis
gusting things. These are now things
of the past, and ladies can now pass
ou our streets on Saturdays as well
as other days without having
their modesty shocked by hearingpro
fanity and seeing actions which any
ravage would be ashamed of. We are
very much rejoiced at the good results
accomplished by .abolishing the charter
and whisky 6hops, especially as wo
have a taxing district which affords
U3 every advantage of a corporation,
ami taxes are considerably less. There
has net boeu an arrest made by our

The corporation paid .$2.) to the

pays only $'' per year for salaries, a
saving of 1222 per pear. The taxes are
now as follows: Merchants' privi

The Clubs of Xew York.
The clubs of New York are inmim
erablo, and adapted to all tastes and
ranks of society. I can testily that
some of them arc delightful places of
resort. Among the larger, tho Uen
tury Club certainly stands first. It
has a very modest house in a quiet
street, but ono meets there the best
and most intelligent men in New
York men representing all profes
sions and all shades of thought. It is
not a club where one goes to eat, al
though he may eat and d rink there,
but a place lor quiet rest or charming
conversation. I ho great club of the
citv, which most closely resembles
the great clubs of Liondon, is the
Union League Club. It has a costlv
and richly decorated house on Fifth
Avenue, and is intended to rival the
luxury of the neighboring private
residences. It originated during the
civil war, and exerted a vast influence
f jr tho Union in its suppor tof the
government; but its political import
ance has passed away. There are
many mere private clubs, limited to
single professions, which are the vnoet
.attractive places of resort in New
York, when one can obtain an en
trance to them. 1 olitical clubs are
numerous, and most of them are about
as tho government of the city. The
less said about them tho better. The

Another Xew Motor.
New motors, or new schemes
perfecting or enlarging the sphere of
old ones, arc constantly making their
appearance in newspapers, H not in
action. The latest announced is- that
of the United States Soring Car Mo
tor Construction Company, which pro
poses to run street and elevated rail
road cars by immense springs, like
tho mainspring of a watch, only on a
much larger scalo. The company
claims to have overcome all difficul
ties iu the way of using tho expensive
force steel for tho driving of machin
ery and vehicles requiring
considerable power. The same idea
has often been broached aud experi
ments have been made upon it with
out success. It is proposed by the
new company to have from six to
ten coils on each car, which,it is held,
will be adequate to a run of twelve
miles. Each coil will be from 300 to
'""0 feet in length." The springs will
be wider at the inside ends than at
the outside. The company expects to
be ablo to furnish the tracks and
springs at $'.100 a car, or $18 a year,
which is about what it costs now to
keep a team of horses for a fortnight
or a little over.
A Weak Lover.
Tho celebrated Georgo "Whitcfield, a
co-laborer with John Wesley in pion
eer Methodism, had curious notions
about marriage and the marital state.
In Southey s Life of Wesley, we find
the following characteristic letter,
written by "Whitcfield, to the parents
of the young lady whom he desired to

To detect the presence of chiccory
in coffee, says 1'runicr, the microscope
examination is the best; but as this is
not always possible the following
method may be employed : Tho cofloa

The grains of police them present au
angular appearance, while the chic
cory has an amorphous appearancc,nd
is of a darker toior. W'heu the sus
pected grains are picked, out with a
needle, the colfee grains will jump
away or are split by it, but tho chic
cory grains, being softer, are easily
punctured. The aot'ler grains wheu
crushed, carefully between the teeth
produce a gritty sensation like fine
sand. If chiccory is present its flavor
is more like an ticid bitter than tho
aromatic bitter tasie of coflee. Chic
cory in coffee may thus be roughly es
timated : About two grammes of dried
ground coli'ee are silted in a hair sieve
from the fine dust which consist of
purecoCee; the larger grains are ma
cerated for some hours with cold wa

stretched cloth and. rubbed, with the
fingers, when the chiccory is forced
through, leaving the coffee grains ou

According to The English Statist

One of the most remarkable features
of the discovery of the baud of The
bans who fell at CLa:ranea is that, according-
to the report, all the teeth of
each member of the sacre I band are
sound -and complete. Either these
gallant patriots were exceptionally
lucky, or the condition of teeth in old
Greece was enviably different from
that of later and more degenerate
days. The Romans were well ac
quainted with the evil3 that attend ou
the possession ot teeth and had some
little knowledge of the use of gold in
counteracting these evils. If wo re
member rightly, an exception to tho
rule of not burying precious objects
with departed Roman was made in
favor of gold that had been used for
stopping teeth. "We moderns may

The care of clothing to be easy must
be habitual. The hardest part is in
lorming tho habit, and this cannot too
early in lifo be formed. Most chil
dren love to make mud pies and play
in the dirt generally and give little
heed to keeping themselves ilcan.
This is all well enough at times, and
they should be indulged in mud pies
provided they are dressed for the
work. But it is "poor-folksy" in the
last degree to allow a child to play in
tho dirt with nice clothes on, or to
permit a young person to dress inap
propriately while at work. It is
vastly easier to change a good coat
for a poor one, than it is to restore to
its pristine condition a soiled coat.
It is vastly easier to put on a pair ot
sveralls than it is to sponge thor
oughly a pair of pantaloons. But the
worst of it is that thoss who neglect
to change the co.tt and put on the
overalls, neglect, also, the sponging
processes, and let dust gather and
spots remain. A clothes brush, a
wisp broom, a bottle of ammonia, a
sponge, a hand brush, a cake of erasive
so.p, a vial of alcohol, tshould form a
part of the furnishing cf every toilet.
After all dust has been removed from
clothing, spots may be taken out of
black cloth with the hand brush
dipped in equal parts of ammonia,
alconol and water. This will bright
en as well as cleanse. Benzine is use
ful in removing grease spots. Spots
of grcae may be removed from color
ed siiks by putting on them raw
starch made into a paste with water.
Dust is best removed fiom silk by a
soft flannel, from velvet with a brush
made especially for ths purpose. If
hats aud bonnets when taken irom the
head arc brushed and put away in
boxes and covered up, instead of being
laid down anywhere, they will last
fresh a long time. Shawls, and all
articles that may be folded, should bo
folded when taken from the person,
in their original creises, and laid
away. Cloaks should be hung up iu
place, gloves pulled out lengthwise,
wrapped iu tissue puper aud laid
away, laces smoothed out nicety, and
folded, if requisite, so that they will
come out of the box nice aud fresh
when needed again. A strip of old
black broadcloth four- or five inches
wide, rolled up tightly and sewed to
keep the roll in its place, is better
than a sponge or a cloth for cleansing
black and dark colored clothes.
Whatever lint comes from it in rub
bing is biack and does not show.
"When black clothes s.re washed, as
they may often be previous to making

and they should be pressed on the
wrong side before being quite dry.
If washed in water previously used
lor white clothing they will be cov
ered with lint. In seed ring clothing
against moths, if linen is used for
wrappings no moth will molest. Pa
per bags are equally good if they are
perfectly tight, and so are trunk aud

Pa.erson, N. J., where silk goo-is niid
novelties of all kinds are very success
fully manufactured, snd whrreMeril
large silk mill will probably be erod
ed in the course of the year. Not on
ly are American manufacturing Inrye
quantities of silk, but they are mahiny
good of superior quality. H Is main
tained that U'O American mills turn
out the best iik thread now manufac
tured in the world.
What are some of the reasons that
favor the introduction of si I k-growing
into America? The mulberry, the
natural food of silk-worms, flourishes
well in many parts of this country.
The black mulberry is very common
in the South, and attains a thrifty
growth there. It is also stated that
no native tree iu Connecticut made a
larger year's growth fhau did the
morus niulticauiis, or Chinese mulber
ry, of the speculative bubble of 1839
40. The mulberry is aid to be of
Persian origin ; but, like wheat, bar
lay, rye and otber leading cereals and
plants not indigenous iu this country,
It has shown itself capable of admi
rable acclimation In North America.
As common white and black mulberry
have teen found to do well in all but
the extreme portions of the North and
South, we may conclude that silk
gron ing may yet be advautageouly
carried on in the large area extending
from the Middle states to the Gulf of
Mexico and through the southern ter
ritories westward, so as to include a
considerable stretch of the Pacific
coast. Moreover, science is discover
ing various substitutes for the .nut 1
irry. The leaves of the mock-orange
are now said to be almost, if not quite
as good food for silk-worms as are the
leaves of the mulberry itself. Prob
ably, therefore, several native plants
or trees may yet be found well-adapted
to the requirements of silk-worms.
In several instances where silk-growing
has been attempted in this coun
try, good success has been attained.
Dr. I. U. Rail, of West Felich.na, La.,
gays of his experiments with silk
worms during the past several years
that he has been "uniformly suooess
ful in raising them iu Urge numbers."
Mr. Ij. S. Crozier, formerly of Mar
seilles, France, has a plantation of
mulberry-trees at Silkville, Kansas,
and intends to introduce the culture
of mulberry-trees at West Feliciana,
Probably the most notable instance
of success in the culture of Silk-worm?
in this country has been that of the
Sisters of the St. Augiutine Convent,
Florida, who began tueir undertaking
in 18M, and havo so ably developed it,
that they now obtain from their silk
worms a silk which compares well
With that produced in Fran.e,
As there is evidence to show that
silk-growing can, with little doubt, be
successfully developed iu the United
Stales, it is of paramount importance
that the experiment should be
promptly and thoroughly tried.

'WHAT CAPITAL DOESTOa 3LABOB.
The insolent, infamous, sacrlligious liar,
Joe Cook the Rev., In a recent lecture
before a codflsh audience, cited to the free
schools and charitable Institutions of tho
country and said :
"Look! you discontented socialists and
complaining workinjrmen, all this is what
capital regularly and willingly does for
labor. There is already being done for you
as much as you can bear to have don and
retain the proper spirit of self-help." i
God grant that some day this audacious
hypocrite may be compelled to tread the
wine-press of poverty and earn his bread by
the sweat of his face. j
"Were the unearned charities and unre
quited contributions of capital bestowed
upon hira now limited to a seat in a free
common school, a cot and board at a poor
house, or a scholarship In a bliad, or dear
and dumb asylum, the laboring men h

It is said that the accumulation ol

An Kmpty Jail.
The following is one of (lie results
of prohibition f
This morning sheriff Windle threw
open the cell doors of the jail as the
last prisoner had been discharged. It
will be remembered that in 7J-S0, the
year of prohibition, during the last
three months the jail stood empty.
With the advent of dram-shops, came
prisoners into the hands of the sheriff,
soon running up to eight or ten charg
ed with various crimes from iarceny
to murder. The Urst part of tne year
of prohibition had to be devoted to
working off the victims of the license
year, some of whom were sent to Jol
iet. This being don", an empty jail
is the result. This is something of
which every good citizen of Logan
county may be proud, and for which
all tax-payers should be thankfu'. Tlie
country people the farmers of lhi
county can well afford to put their
shoulders to the wheel and with a
shout hurrah for Lincoln and prohi
bition. Send the car of progress
wheeling forward until the traflie is

Drowsiness Daring Sermons.
The Christian Advocate sa s that
ministers are often troubled by seiug
persons asleep iu their congregations.
Often they are themselves to blame,
their oratory is soporific. But oft n
the stupidity of the hearer is the
same. Eutychus slept while Paul
preached. Joseph Bradford fe'l
asleep while John Wesley preached.
Bishop Janes told a class of young
men that if their hearers slept it wa
their fault. At that moment, Bishop
Baker, just in from a long jo- rney,
was asleep in the pulpit. Bishop Janes,
on being told of it was much amused,
and said : "I was an awful example
to them." Nothing will keep some
people awake, In a murder case iu
Hudson county, N. J-, Judge Kuapp,
not many days sgo, was delivering
his charge, and saw a juror asleep.
"What is the use," he asked sharply,
"of ray addressing this jury, if it
member connot sfy awake long
enough to listen to me.'
Tkere is no holy past. The world
revolves in its anit'ia! orbits and
brings seed time and harvest, and al
so it makes its diurnal revolutions
and brings day and night. But the
days and the years which have passed
away carried with them ail events
which distingnished them. Tiie voir
is all we can claim. The past is a
memory, the future a hope; the one
possesses a sentimental interest, the
other nothing. We think, act and live
in un eternal io-day, and will do so
during the lifetime'of the race.

According to the report of the
comptroller of the currency, December
1873, the total amount of bank capital
invested in the United fcitaten,exc!uiive

The total number o! basks, national,

Thns it will be seen that on an
tactual investment of $300,000,000, the
banks, for the want of KufScient money
in circulation, are enabled to loan their
credit to an amount eqnl to the sum
of the public debt, at a cost to bociety
of an average of 8 per cent, per an
num, or over $150,000,000 a year, and
69 per cent, on their investjacnts.
