MisnitiEH of SciENcn. Hcicnco is
daily proving to us what n horrible
world wo live in. Our clothing is
I dilenso-breeding, our colored socks aro
poisonous, our hats produce head-ocht-s,
neuralgia nnd baldness, the wa
ter wo drink is tainted, tho soap wo
uso produces a thousand ills, tho air
we breatho tends death pulsing through
our veins, and now a paper has prov
en to our entire satisfaction that the
food we cat is adulterated, thai wo aro
in daily danger of taking in sickness
with our sugar and death with our
bread. Vet if we subscribe lo no
scientific papers, but go quietly on
our way, eating what wo please,
drinking wlmt wo can get, wearing
what wo have, and sleeping whero we
may, wo will probably never have
any qualms of tho stomach, and live
as lone and le as happy as tho most
scientific of scientists.
Thero was n little company at Mr,

A gentleman owns a fine tract of co-

and a few days ago ho was told that

timber, sq he rode out to sea about it.
To his astonishment ho found a weal -
thy white neighbor with a team and

I am astonished, colonel," said the
owner of tho laud "I heard that a
lot of negroes were stealing1 xray tim-

A funny accident occurred ou tho
Lawrenceburg road yesterday. A gen
tleman and lady started to that place
about nine o'clock, and had go no about
Gvo miles when tho coupling pole
broke, and tho horse ran oft with the
frnt wheels, leaving them uncomfor
tably seated in on impromptu gig with
out shafts. The horso ran down tho
road about a half mjle it the direc
tion they Were going, but turned aud
camo back, passing tha wreck under
full speed,, and making no halt until
ho was out of sight. Tho last heard
from tho party, thoy were trying t)

Mr. Witherspoon, an old banker of
Lawreuceburg, Ky., spent yesterday
Inthecity. He advanced $100,000 to
tho Confederate army, for which the
United States, since the war, brought
suit aud obtained it judgment against
him in the Uuited States Court, and
recovered the money. It was a heavy
loss, but Mr, Withcrspoou says he did
it to aid what ho believed to bo a good
cause, and is perfectly reconciledlo it.

Every now legal decision on mar
riago laws shows tho necessity for
some legislation (hat would mako
them uniform throughout tho coun
try. It has been tho law in Now
York that tho guilty person against
whom the divorce was procured, could
not marry again; but notwithstanding
this prohibition they did go (o adjoin
ing .States and formed other unions for
life. The Court of Appeals of this
Stato has just decided that, the off
spring of such prohibited marriages
aro legitimate and entitled to inherit
property. This- practically makes a
chango in tho New York law, and
now both the innocent and the guilty
partner are frco to marry again, only
tho latter must havo the ceremony
performed outside tho Stato of Now
York and in some commuuity where
thero is no law against such unions.
Hence thero is practically no penalty
against unfaithfulness. Indeed, peo
plo tired of their matrimonial yoko
may bo tempted to sin in order to find
more congenial partners. rDemorcst.

artificial pari, however, is simply a
glass bead or globo which is first coat
ed on the inside with a clue mado of
parchment, then treated with a pe
culiar so-called "essence," after which
it is filled with wax. Tho essence is
the chief pearly ingredient, and is ob
tained by rubbing together whitefish,
so as to remove tho scales; tho whole
is then strained through linen, and
left to deposit its sediment, which is
tho essence in question. It requires
about 17,000 fish to produce a pound
of the pearly essence. New "York

A lover s privato gymnastics, ; How
beautiful is the exhibition of human!
1 ty in the young. A little boy found
a poor half frozeu wasp in the garret
and placed it upon a chair before the
1 parlor fire to thaw out. Surely the
'angels must havo looked down ap-
! provingly on such an act of kindness.
( When sister Mary's beau called that
j evening he glanced at tho chair, and
i scaling himself in it murmured: "Ah,
bless her heart, how thoughtful she
is of my comfort I" Two minutes la-
! ter there was as much noise and rack
ct in that parlor as if it had been
turned into a den of demens. The
wasp had (hawed out; that is why
Mary isn't married yet.

a young man spends for her. Three

he earns the money or takes it from

which, usually, save for her pride and
his gallantry, a horse-car ride for ten
cents would bo far wiser than a car
riage ride for several dollars. A young
man respects a young woman all the
more who is careful of the way in
which he spends his money, and will
not permit too much to be used for
her. A thoughtlul and well-bred girl
will be wise about theso matters.
