She wanders up nml down the main
Without a master, nowhere bound;
The currents turn her round and round.
Her track is like a tangled skein;
And never helmsman by his chart
So strange a way ushers may steer
To enter i*>rt or to depart
Kor any harbor, far or near.
The waters clamor at her sides.
The winds cry through her cordage torn.
The last sail hangs, to tatters worn;
lipon the waves the vessel rides
This way or that, as winds may shift,
lu ghastly dance, w hen airs blow halm,
Or held in deep lethargic calm,
Or fury hunted, wild, adrift.
When south w inds blow, dors she recall
Spices and golden fruit in store
Or north winds met off Labrador,
The iceberg's iridescent wall?
Or east, the isles of Indian seas?
Or west, new ports and sails unfurled?
Her voyages nil around the world
To mock her with old memories?
For her no lighthouse sheds n ray
Of crimson warning from its tower;
No watchers wait In hope the hour
To greet tier cowing up the bay!
No trumpet speaks her, hearty, hoarse
Or if a Captain boll at first.
He sees her for a thing accurst.
And turns his own slop from her course.
Alone in desperate liberty
She forgi-s on; am! how she fares
No man alive inquires or cares
Though she were sunk beneath the sea.
Her helm obeys no firm control,
She drifts, n pre-, for storms to take,
For sands to clutch, for rocks to break,

Milking Castor Oil.
The process of manufacturing the oil
is very simple. The beans are ground
up line aud put iu horsehair hags. In
this shape they are crushed under a pow?
erful press, giving out iu oil about one
third of their weight. The dry pulp,
called "pumice," is sold for fertilising.
The oil is filtered and finally bleached, if
for medical use, by exposure to the sun's
rays under glass. The amount of castor
oil employed for medicine, however, is
trilling compared to the quantity con?
sumed in mechanical crafts. For lubri?
cating leather it is nnequalcd, while its

THE COW TREE.
VEGETABLE JUICE THAT CLOSE.
IjY RESEMBLES MIIjK.

Severs! natural orders of the vegetable
kingdom include plants that are charac?
terized by the secretion of n fluid closely
resembling milk in appearance and cou
sistency, and a familial- example of these
is to he seeu in our common milkweed,
which is well know n to everybody. In
some plants this milky thud is of the
must venomous nature; in others, it pos?
sesses active medicinal virtue; in others,
it yields a product (.such as India rubber
und gutta pereha) of the highest impor?
tance to the nils and industries; and, in
others still, it proves of value as a human
aliment. Since the same general proper?
ties characterize the plants of each nat?
ural family, it seems an anomaly that, in
tin- same order, we should find the species
of one genus producing a lactescent fluid
of a highly poisonous nature, 4ml those of
another yielding one that is entirely in?
nocuous. Yet such is often the case, aud
we have a striking example of it in the
bread fruit order, which on the one hand,
includes the celebrated upas tree of Java,
which, when pierced, exudes a milky
juice containing an acrid virulent poison
(antiariu), the smallest quantity of which
will kill the largest animal, mid, on the
other, the famous ISrosimutn utili of South
America, which yields a copious supply J
of rich, wholesome milk, of as good n|
quality as that from the cow.
There are several other instances in the |
vegetable kingdom of such an associa?
tion, in the same natural order, of plants
that produce a noxious lactescent juice
with others which yield a wholesome one
adapted for man's use, aud which may,
therefore, be designated as "vegetable
cows." To speak only of the latter class,
the most remarkable example in the spe?
cies of Brosimum just mentioned, which
whs discovered and made know n by the |
celebrated traveler Humboldt. This tree I
forms extensive forests on tile mountains !
near the town of Coriaco, and elsewhere 1
along the seacoast of Venezuela?grow?
ing to upward of 100 feet in height, with 1
a trunk six or eight feel 111 diameter, and
branchless for the first sixty or seventy |
feet 01" its height. It is popularly known '
as the cow tree, Pnlo do Vnca, or Arbol j
du Lechc. Its milk, which is obtained I
by making incisions in the trunk, sol
closely resembles the milk of the cow, I
both in appearance ami quality, that it is 1
commonly used as an article of food by j
their-J tbitants of the places where the!
tree is abundant. Unlike many other j
vegetable milks, it is perfectly whole- !
some and very nourishing, possessing 1111
agreeable taste, like that of sweet cream, i
and a pleasant balsamic odor, its onlyun- I
pleasant quality being a slight amount of >
Stickiness. The chemical unlnysisof this |
milk has shown it to possess a composi
tion closely resembling some animal sub- '
stances, nod like animal milk, it quickly
forms a yellow, cheesy scum 1
upon its surface, and, after a j
few days' exposure to the- at mos- j
pherc, turns sour and purities. It 0011
tuius upward of thirty per cent, of a!
I resinous substance called galactin by
chemists. Speaking of this tree, Hum-1
; bold', says: "They (the natives) profess
I to recognize, from the color and thick
ncsa of the foliage, the trunks that yield
the most juice, as the herdsman dis-!
linguistics from external signs of a good
milch cow. Amidst the great number of
curio,is phenomena that I have observed
ill the course of my travel.-, 1 confess there
are few that have made so powerful an
impression on me as the aspect of the cow
tree. A few drops (1f vegetable juice re- I
call to our minds all the ]io\vcrfulnQ5S ami
fecundity of nature. On the barren Hank
I of a rock grows a trie with coriaceous j
and dry leaves. Its large woody roots 1
can scarcely penetrate into the stone.
Por several months in the year, not a
single shower moistens its foliage. Its
branches appear dead and dried, but
when the trunk is pierced there flows
j from it a sweet and nourishing milk. It
is ::t the rising of the sun that this vege?
table fountain is most abundant, The
! natives are then seen hastening from all J
quarters, furnished with large bowls lo re?
ceive '.he milk, which grows yellow tied
thickens at the surface. Some empty the ]
bowls under the tree itself, others carry ,
the juice home to their children."
In the Dogbane order, the Apocynaebu', !
which includes plants that are mostly of
a venomous nature and possess nil exceed- i
j illgly acrid and drastic juice, wc have a '
second example of a tree that secretes a .
I wholesome milk-like fluid. This is the
J cow-tree of Donierara, or hyn-hya of the !
j natives. This tree grows in abundance
in the forc-'.s of British Guiana, and its '
bark, when tapped, yields a copious
supply of thick, sweet milk, resembling
thai of the cow in appearance, bin rather
Sticky from the presence of caoutchouc, j
This milk mixes freely with water, is of
11 pleasant flavor, and the natives employ ,
it as a refreshing beverage.
Two "cow-trees" are employed in the'
order Sapotaceie, which embraces immer
OUS plants valuable for their suculcnl
fruits, such as the marmalade, star apple, J
etc. One of these is called by the natives
massaruudnha or apraiu, and which Pro- '
fi-ssor OrtOU, in tin- ??Andes and the
Amazons, " describes as one j
of the noblest trees of the
forests of Para. It stands from 180 to
200 feet in height, is 20 feet in circum?
ference, and is crowned with a vast dome
of foliage. The milk yielded by the bark i
has the consistency of cream, ami is used
for tea, colTe.e and custards. It hardens !
l>3' exposure, so as to resemble gutta
perclia, which, indeed, is the product of I
a Malaisian tree belonging to the same
natural order. The other tree is the bully
tree of English, French, and Dutch Gui- ,
ana. The milk of this species is some?
times employed with tea or coffee, in?
stead of cow's milk, but has the disad?
vantage of hardening very rapidly upon
exposure to air.
The natural order Aselepiadaea; consists
of plants that are almost always milky,
aud the milk is usually acrid and hitter, '
and always lo be suspected, yet one of
the plants of the family. Grymnema laeti- ;
fcrum, the cow plant, of Ceylon, called
by the natives kiriaghuna, yields a milk
which the Cingalese make use of as fond.
Another example of n "cow tree" be- !
longing to a dangerous natural order, tin- ;
Buphorbiaccie, which embraces plants
having acrid and purgative juices, is the
Euphorbiabnlsamifcra, or Tabayba dolce, |
of the Canaries. Not withstanding tii
fact that the plants of this genus have
juices that possess very active medicinal
qualities, and are in some cases so vor.
omous that they are used as arrow poi?
sons, tho juice of the species under con?
sideration is innocuous, and according to
Leopold von Buch, is similar to sweet
milk, and is eaten as a delicacy after be?
ing thickened into a jelly.
Still another "cow tree'' is found
which embraces plants that secrete an
acrid, purgative, yellow gum resin, such
as gamboge. This tree is a native of
Venezuela, where it is known as Palo do
Vaca. It hag a thick bark, coveted with
rough tubercles, and its internal tissue
becomes red when exposed to the light.
In extracting the milk, the inhabitants
make incisions through the bark till the
wood is reached. These cuts arc said to
bo made only before full moon, it being
imagined that the milk Hows more freely
then than at any other time. One tree
will yield a quart in an hour. The milk
is freely used by all, especially the chil?
dren, although it has a somewhat astrin?
In the order Moracere. which includes
the mulberry and fig, there are several
species of licus that arc known as cow
trees, and tho milky thud of which is
bland and used as a beverage, although in
most of the species of the genus the juice
is exceedingly acrid. ? Urvoklyn Citizen.
Opals for a Song.
Senor Jose Gonzales Cosio, brother of
the Governor, is owner of six of the tinest
opals mines for which the Slide of tjuere
taro, Mexico, is noted. Only one of the
mines is now being worked ami about
100 uten, arc now employed digging out
tho opal-bearing rock.
The mines are located about twenty
five leagues from the city and the ore is
brought to Querctaru on the backs of
mules, aud iu bis residence in the city
Senor Cosio personally superintends the
polishing of the stones, which is done by
about twenty skilled Mexican lapidaries.
The profits from these mines arc large,
owing to the fact thai the labor employed
iu the mines is paid at the rate of twen?
ty-live cents per day and the polishers re?
ceive on an average seventy-live cents per
The mines can only be reached by a
two days' journey on horseback from
Querctaro, hut a visit will repay the time
spent, writes a correspondent of tin- Kan?

iu a peculiar rocky formation that very
much resembles Tennessee marble, but
which at once suggests volcanic origin,

The first layer of opal-bcariug rock is

is generally about five feet thick. This
is followed by a layer of earth of about
the same thickness ami is iu turn suc?
ceeded by another strata of opal-bearing \
rock, und so on it continues for many
feet in depth.
Many handsome stones arc ruined by
the blasting process, but this cannot bo
avoided. The stones arc sold to the cu?
riosity dealers iu the capital aud to the
many tourists who stop over in Qucrcturo
for the purpose of securing them.
The common and generally worthless
stones are bought by the native boys.who
otter them for sah-in the Central Railroad

Most Densely Populated Spot on Eartlt.
This valley of the Ganges has more
people than it can support and it is
probably the most densely populated
pall of the world. The people live in
villages and the average couutry town
consists of one-story mud huts too poor
and illy ventilated for American pig
pens. You would not. think of having
such outhouses as the residences of the
majority of this vast population would
make, and inn large part of India, and
especially in the best part, of tills Gauges
country, the holdings average from two to
three acres apiece. At four to the fam?
ily this represents a half acre per person
or 120(1 persons to the square mile.
When it Is remembered that, these peo?
ple live by agriculture it will be seen
that this condition is far worse than
that of China or any part of Kuropc.
And still the people arc bright. They
arc brainy, loo, and you will find few
sharper business men, heiter cut faces
and more polite people than these people
of India. Their faces iu this part of
India have much the sane- characteristics
as those of the Anglo-Saxon. Those of
the highest castes are more like those of
the Greeks, and 1 sec faces every day
