TUa local History or Handrada of One
Protswrout Towns Alone tho Nil.
Upon some ipot of rising ground
mbove the level of tho annual Inunda
tion a tew mud huts nlustnr round a
rude sanctuary. Tho hut-dwellers mul
tiply; the village spreads; tho sanctuary
Is enlargod or rebuilt. As time goes
on the village becomes a town; tho
town becomes a city; and the temple,
trariched by successive generations of
Kings, Governors and pious donors bo
comes a vast historical aggregate of
chapels, halls, courts, avonues, pylons
and sacred enclosures. By and by,
whother ravaged by foreign foes or
shattered by some convulsion of nature,
the splomlfd structure falls Into partial
ruin. Hereupon the degenerate princes
of a later age, careless of the past and
eager to raise some momorial of their
own unovcntful rule, lay profano hands
upon the monumonts of their great
predecessors, cut them up for building
material and use them in tho con
struction of debased imitations of
earlier schools. This process, in all
probability, is again and again re
peated. Not merely stones, but statues,
sphinxes, obelisks, are appropriated
and reappropriated, worked and re
worked, till at last there comas a tlmo
of disruption and change, when tho
old religion Is abolished, and the im
ages of the gods are cost down, and tho
very language of the inscriptions Is f or
" gotten. After this, the sacred places
Become, quarries for 'the builders of
Coptic churches, Arab mosques and the
pafaoes of Turkish Governors. Mean
while tho actual city, .consisting of
labyrinthine lanes of mud-built dwell
ings, gradually disappears. The spa
cious houses of the rich, the hovels of
the poor, crumble, collapse and resolve
themsolves into mounds of dust and
potsherds. Such is the local history of
hundreds of ancient Egyptian sites,
and such is tho history of Tunis.
A hundred years ago, the grave of
this dod city was yet inviolate. Then.
as now, the great sand island was
heaped high with desolate piles of reddish-brown
rubbish. Then, as now,
those mounds enclosed a low, lovol
area of large extent like the bed of a
dry lako, or the crater of an extinct
volcano. The traveler who once, por
ohance, in a deca le soaled those crum
bling slopes and looked down into that
area, beheld at his feet an undulating
wasto enclosed by what at first sight
looked liko a quadrangular rampart of
earthworks, but which proved, on closer
inspection, to be the remains of an ex
traordinary massive wall built of sun
dried bricks. Tho space thus bounded
was strewn with ruins.
Such was the aspect of the place
when surveyed in 171)8 by the engineers
of the great French expedition. Mean
while there was war in Egypt, in India.
in Europe, on land, on sea universal
war, followed, in 1815, by universal
peaoo. The rich, tho learned, the
adventurous, tho speculative, wore
once more free to travel, and tho world
was speedily overrun by tourists and
traders. The picture market and the
antiquity market, both long dormant,
started into now and vigorous life In
Egypt the soil was strewn with treas
ures which it was not only profitable
but praiseworthy to rescue from tho
destructive propensities of native fel
laheen and Turkish Pashas. A host of
depredators laid hands accordingly
upon every movable object wltliin
their roach, and the collections so
amassed wore sold for enormous sums
to crowned heads and wealthy virtuosi.
Thns were founded the great Egyptian
galleries of our European museums.

tory Fos HI by Thorn,
The Channel Islands were originally
part of the dukedom of Normandy.
The son of Rollo, the first Duke, gained
posssssion of them in A. d. 932. Then,
as over afterward, the existing laws
and customs of the islands were not in
terfered with to any largo extent. As
. the islands 'thus oame under the aigls
of the Norman Dukes, previous to the
invasion of England by William, tho
inhabitants still boast that their con
nection with the realm commenced
with their taking part in the conquest
of the Saxons. King John is said to
have granted a charter confirming to
the Islands their long enjoyed rights
of self-government. A writer in
the Quarterly Review for July, 1885,
however, asserts that there is no
foundation for this statement, and that,
on the other hand, it is more probable
the constitutional and administrative
arrangements of the islands have pre
vailed to adopt the Quarterly Review's
incontestable statement "from a time
of which no momory exists." Feudal
ism seems never to have weighed
heavily on the shoulders of the island
community. "From abont 481 to 932
A. d. the old Aryan system of the
Western Franks subsisted In force, and
when the feudal system spread to tho
islands it was grafted upon tho o!dr
stock in the forms of reciprocal service
and protection, doing what was re
quired by the times, yet bringing little
or no organic chango." Philip. Augus
tus is believed to havo endeavored to
wrest Jersey from the King of England,
on tho reversion of Normandy , to hira

EQQS IN WINTER.
Valuable Baggat tlana Concerning tho Cart
of Hon la Cold Vfoathet.
Tho most profitable time of the year
tor tho poultry should be tho fall and
winter, just as these are tho best sea
Ions of the yoar for the dairyman, who
Is provided with the fresh oows and tho
(abilities for ms,klng butter whon tho
itipply is scarce. Every producor should
llm to have his products when others
havo none and the markots are baro of
them. Eggs are cheap in tho summer
and so are chlokens; but when the
rammer glut of them is over and con
sumers are crying out for more, then
the prices advanca and tho lucky house
wife who has laying pullet, or whoso
well-fod hens are over their brooding
and moulting and are beginning to sing
their lays onco more, m ikes tho biggest
profits of tho yoar. Moreover, careful
of tho surptus summor o?gs, she has
thee packed away In somo preservative
whic'i keops them fresh until the prices
becomo remunerative, whon they are
ted out as tho demand warrants at
treblo tho summer pricss.
Tnero are several methods of pre
serving eggs for winter use and salo.
We havo tried several of thes?, anl find
the oil process the b:st for domestic
use, but it is too troublesome to clean
the eggs for sale. This procoss is as
follows: A pint of boiled linssed oil is
warmjd and one ounco of nwltod bees
wax is wsll mixed with it. The eggs,
taken whon quite fresh, aro carefully
rubbed all over with tho mixture and
placed on the small ond upon a layer
of hard-wood saw-dust, corn-meat or
bran in a suitable box or keg. Whon
the layer is full tho ezgs aro covered
over half an inch with the material. Of
those threo the best packing was found
to bs oorn-meal, which lies close. Dry
,sand also answers the purpose very
well. When tho box is tilled it is put
away In a cool, dry collar. Wiion used
the eggs are dipped in warm water and
wiped dry If tnought necessary, but
this is not ne:ess try when they uro to
be broken for use.
The ohjmical preparations icellne,
glaclalino and tho Germ in and
Havana processes all affect tho yelk,
causing it to bjcoms hard, although
the two first m jntloned have kept cg;s
perfectly swaet and unchingjd, as far
as the whltas wore concerned, for mora
than a year. The llmo proaess is tho
best for eggs thit are to be sold, as
only an expert can detjet any difference
between eggs thus preserved and fresh
ones. The process is as follows: Some
frash qulokilms is slaokod In water in
a suitable vessel, and when the lime is
reduced to a soft liquid, water is added
to m ike up tw ;nty gallons for a pock
of the lime. The char lim i-wator is
dipped off after settlement of tho un
dissolved lime and is put into a olean
cask until this is half full. Fresh eggs
and no others should ever bo kept
over are carefully placid in a shallow
dipper a shallow tin wash-bowl with
a handle serves well for this purpose
and are gently poured out into tho
lime-water, in which thoy settle down
gradually as the barrel is lillod. Whon
the barrel is full up to an inch from
the top a cloth is laid ovor it,
leaving a border of a few incites
all around; this is csvored with
the so mi-fluid lime left from the slack
ing to tho depth of an inch, and this is
pressed closely around the edge of the
top of the barrel. The cloth is then
foidel over tho lime, and water is
pourod ovor this and kept upon it. so
as to have it always covered. This
prevents accoss of air and keops the
lime around the oggs in a caustic con
dition, avoiding the absorption of car
bonic acid from tho atmosphere. The
llmo is i deposited la the pores of the
shell and causes" a slight roughness,
which is prccopllble whon the eggs have
remained two or threo months in the
pickle. The limed ogs sell during the
winter for nearly the same price i as
fresh eggs, the d fferenco bjing two or
three cents a dozen. '
Tho continuous supply of egg's from
tho hens during tho winter is s.-arcoly
possible, as this is tho resting spell for
tho fowls, and warmth and out-door
exercise and spesial food ara all noces
sary for the peculiar condition of the
hen in which oggs are produced. But
much may be done to overcome natural
proclivities by s'.c llful management.
Thus, by setting hens in January or
February and rearing early broods, by
keeping such breeds as thj Leghorns
and Plymouth Rocks, which are noted
as precocious layers of eggs and as
productive in the winter; by providing
a comfortable, dry, warm, clean houso
and suitable food, ku m as warm bakod
potatoes, hot parchodcorn, fresh bones,
broken shroded cabbige, finuly-cut
clover hay and a hot meal of scalded
corn mush, w th a littlo s iltand poppor
and sulphur In it, a good many oggs
may be procure I in the winter. Thore
should bo a reserved force, too, kept on
hand in the way of hens which have
been porraittjd to brood and rear
chickens late in the season. Thus, If
hens are given a nest of eggs in
fall, and have a rest from laying, they
will go to work In January if well fed
and carod for, and the young chicks,
also well cared for, will coma in for
broilers very early in the season.
There must be, however, evory requi
site 'provided, for tho caro of both hons
and the young'chtoks; a tight, warm
'house and warm nests for the latter
will be especially necessary.
Vermin are the great drawback to
success in pursuit of eggs in the win
ter. Those pests m ty bo kept at b ty,
if not wholly cleared from tho poultry
house,; by,tho libara! use of petroleum.
Tho perches should be drenched with
it at least every two weeks, and every
crack and and crevioa whoro lice, lions
and red mites can hide, should be filled
with it. A barrel of crude potroloum
is the cheapest and tho best to ba kept,
and the whole honsai and the nest
boxes should be painted over with it.

FATTEN IN : CATTLE.
The Amount or Waco Which Should H
tltven to lleer Animals.
As land becomes dourer and the de
mand greater for beaf to supply the
rapidly increasing population, evcrj
means of raising and fattening cattle
cheaper will have to be resorted to.
Germany, where they always mako ex
periments carefully and thoroughly,
havo been trying to ascertain just the
right amount of water to give to fat
toning cattle for the greatest develop
mentof flesh and fat. The scientific
experimenters contend that too large
quantities of water given to such ani
mals with their food, orbjforeor after,
increases tho elimination of carbonic
gas, which hinders the formation ol
fat. They claim that this question
should be carefully investigated by
cattlo f :oders, to ascertain just how
much, and no mare, isneeded toquench
the thirst, and to dilute to a suitable
degree the food of the anl mil. Feed
ing for beef is different from fee ling
a horse or cow. For the firmor food
Is 'riven to sustain lift) and prod ico
solid flesh and muscle, henco if water
In any way, by tho production of car
bonio acid, prevents the accumulation
of fat, it is all right. In the case of
cows, thoy should havo pure but not too
cold water, without measure or stint.
It is absolutely necessary for a plenti
ful production of milk. And it has
been pretty clearly demonstrated that
if the water is warmed, it causes a
much larger flow of milk.
Tho question of how much water
should bo given to fattening cattlo,
Is worthy of consideration, and those
who have time and opportunity, ought
to experiment on it, and give the re
sults to the world. It is evident that
tho day of largo and easy gains on a
fewstojrs, carelessly fed, have pasted
by, and eonomy will, in tho future,
ba one of the prominent virtues on the
farm. All of the domestic fertilizers
will havo to bo onrcfully saved and
usod, and all of tho coarso foddor, as
well as grain, will have to be more
wisely used, and it is probable there
may ho something worthy of considera
tion in the amount of water which
should be given to fattonlng cattle.

Drains from Barn-Yards,
It is difficult keeping a drain that
leads from tho barn-yard in good run
ning condition. The filtration of ma.
nuro water through the soil in time
saturates it so that its fertilizing prop
erties escape into tho drain. This in
volves a serious loss, and, almost equally
as bad, tho manure water coming 1b
contact with air in the drain induces
the formation of fungus growths on its
sidos. Those extend very rapidly when
once formed, and are exceedingly difli
cult to get rid of. A tile, once affected,
if takon out and cleaned, soon fills
again, even if left In another plaoo.
The soil through which the soakingsof
the barn-yard euters the drain should
be removed once a year and fresh soil
J ut in Its place. It will pay to do this
or its manurlal value, besides saving
the drain, A. Y. Independent.

"Yes, hundreds. Every week some

want to go on the stage; shall I?'"
"And you answer?" "1 answer: 'No,
no, no, my child; no.' They know
nothing of the ltfo of the stage Its
temptations and Its hard work. They
see us only at night, nicely dressed, and
with every thing perfect They know
no more. I have been thirty-three
years on the stage, and I say there is
no lifo like it. It has no happiness, it
leaves you no time for domestio or so
cial pleasure, no time for any thing but
work, work, work. I was once a good
pianist. But for years I have hardly
