us from the apothecary. Professor Tief

important subject of absolute and relative

' universal approbation.
Bat cooKing and eating must bo kept in
i their legitimate: places. It has be'en said
1 that cooking is an experience and not an
1 art, and the members of the cooking con-
ventiou mint continually remember that
they arc to depend upon their memory and
not upon their imagination. If these Sc
ions of the kitchen can recollect their child
I ish tastes and proclivities, they will verify
1 this opinion by recalling the fact that eating
I is only a habit, formed entirely by long
1 practice. Hence to him who lives "in New
j England, johnny-cake and pumpkin pie arc
J orthodox articles of food; to the English-
man, the traditional roast beef alone is re-ceive-ei
without grumbling; to the French
man, a pale deoie eras is the crowning
glory of tiie feast; while he who liven-in the
furthest north makes himself comfortable
with an unctuous strip of blubber.
i The first thing to be done, then, is to
concoct a dish which shall be current the
world over. A cosmopolitan pot-pie is
what is r.ecdcd an article of food which
shall be considered the best among all men.
This can be formed only by a combination
of national dishes, in which the Chinamen
shall taste his juicy rat-steak, the Dutchman
his odoriferous sour-kiaut, and the South
Sea Islandri his tender missionary chop.
Of the many advantages likely to be in
closed in this "delectable elish no man, per-
hsij, can speak intelligently. L'nder its
benign influence personal anil national ego -
tisiu will iiisapjicar, lor every man anu ev -
cry people will aver that the same dish is
the bct. Diplomacy will be reduced to
dining, and philanthropists will find their
occupation gone. Traveling will have its

Recognizing tiie need of some such
means of bringing the world together, and
anticipa'.ing that cooks are able to do it, we
seconel Professor Tiefdenkcn's proposnl.
Ot course such a glorious result cannot be
iimediatelv attained. Cooks are but hu
man after all. They have their personal
and national prejudices, like common per
sons. Early in the session we shall read of

Troubles of tho Creek Nation.
It is reported that the troubles between
the two factions of the Creek Nation which
came near mding in blood-shed have beeu
settled. The feud grew out of an election
for chief of the Nation. Samuel Checote,
the former chief, lias been declared re
elected. His competitor was Oc-ter-sus-hargo,
popularly known as "Sands," The
Checote party voted by ballot, while the
Sands party voted by counting heads, ac
cording to tho ancient custom of the tribe.
Both parties claimed the election, and the
adherents of each chief rushed to arms to

with armed men, ready to embroil their
hands in each other's blood. Tho danger
was imminent, but a conflict was happily
avoided by the appearance of the United
States agent for the Creeks, Mr. F. S.Lyon,
who resides at the Creek agency, abont
twenty-live miles distant from Okmulgee.
Mr. Lyon went to work energetically,
calling the leaders of both parties together.
He succeeded in pacifying them, and the
ellusion of blood was thereby avoided. The
Cree k convention, which adjourned until
thcl3"h of November, declared that Checote
was elected by about 300 majority. The
Sands party, who had possession of the
court-house, thereopon withdrew their op
position. It seems that Sands wanted to
come under the old law of the "realm,"
while the Checote party adhered to the new
Mi-Jco-hut-kee was declared elected second
The feud between these factions has lasted
many years. Sands succeeded Oe-fcr-sus-hargo,
the chief of the loyal Creeks, who
was buried at Leavenworth during the war.
He claims that he has been defrauded out of
his rights by the Checote party. Sands
headed the treaty party and signed the
treaty between the Creeks and the United
States at Washington in 1SCC, which renew
ed all the rights they now possess. But in
the several contests for supremacy he was
beaten by his antagonist, Checote. Both
these chiefs mcde a representation of these
claims to Col. Robert Campbell and John
D. Lang, of the Indian commission, last fall,
but these gentlemen advised forbearance.

' Coliseum at Rome.
The Emperor Vespasian, after his return
from the Jewish war in the year 72 of the
) Christian era, caused this wonderful Am-
j phltheater to be built in that part of ancient
Rome where were the ponds and gardens
: of Nero. It was completed in four years.

Adrian eaused the colossal statue of-Nero
to be removed from the vestibule of his
own palace, and placed in this amphithea
ter, where it was worshiped as Apollo.
The Coliseum derives its name from its
: colossal dimensions, being about 1700 Eng
lish feet in circumference. The form i3
; oval. It was built of immense blocks ef
Traventine stone, and consists of four
1 stories. The first story is ailorneil with
Doric columns, the second with lonie, the
third and fourth with Corinthian. The en
trances were eighty in number, seventy-six
being for the people, two for the gladiators,
and two for the Emperor and his suit.
i Within the walls were twenty staircases
loading to scats appropriated to the diflcr
ent classes of the peojilc. The seats are
1 said to have held eighty-seven thousand
spectators, and the portico or gallery above
, them twenty thousand. There wa3 an
awning which covered the entire edifice in
case of rain or intense heat. In the wall of
the uppermost story are open holes sup
posed to have contained the rings for fas
tening the cords of this awning.
Chateaubriand .in his Martyrs, says,
"sThcre were rails of gold before the seat
' of the Roman Senators to guard them from
the attacks of the wild beasts. The air was
refreshed by means of machines ingeni-
' ously contrived to throw up wine and saf
fron waie r which again descended ill an
oelorifcrous dow. Three thousand bronzed
j statues line pictures, column of jasper
anil porphyry, crystal balustrades, vases, of
1 precious workmanship, decorated this scene
: of savage crif lty."
A hippopotamus and some crocodiles
swam in an artificial eaual which surround
ed the arena. Five hupilre-el lions, forty el
ephants, tigers, panthers, bulls and bears,
, kept for the inhuman purpose of tearing
I human beings to atlord amusement to their
I savage: sjie'cics, were heard roaring in the
, caverns of the amphitheater.
, Sacli were the sports of the Romans
when their empire was in the plentitude of
