Beautifying the C`ountry. :
Mr.i'Northrop speaks very, modestly of
his work during the last ten years in his

The nearest approach he makes to statistics

fifty associations for this object in Connec

please the eye of futuie general icns, while
casting grateful shade upon the road. h
Most of our older towns have a village a

surrounded by grand old trees. Too many
of thenm, however, are neglected. The s

upon. The improvemnent societies have a
great work before them, though some have e
done it alr(~gly, in restoring these com
iuons,--in plaiting atnd protecting trees
antl grass, in setting out rustic seats, and I
in making popular the habit of resorting U
to public grounds for pIleasure and society. d

personal uncleanliness, such as throwing f;
rubbish into the streets or by the roadside, h
the removal of unsightly fences and'the a
construction of neat t but not costly substi- to

railroad stations,'uplon which the eyes of t
travelers first rest in passing into or V
through a village; and nunerous other °
iclasses of work that might be mentioned, s
indlicate sulliciently well what a village so
ciety can and should undertake, and what a
it can actually do,' at an incredibly small
expenditure of time, money and labor on
Sthe part of individual memnbers.
One of the best things about Mr. North
Srop's reform is that the example which he f
induces other people to set to their neigh- s
hors is infectious. In a - community like t
I New England no man likes fto have his e
surrounding comipared with those of his t
neighebors to his own disadvantage. The
village which presents a slatternly appear
ante, while those about it are neat and
clean, soon hears the uncomplimentary re
marks nmad about it, and sets at work to
improve itself. And the reflex influence
of triluned anl neatly kept roads upon the
dwellers ii a village, is by no means to be
despis-ed. The effect of a sidewalk, no
matter how primitive it may be, upon the
cleanliness of viliagers' boots might be
quickly remarked. In short, this improve- r
mnent of the surroundings of country
homes makes rural -life more attractive to t
those who live it, renders them more con
tented and happy, commends their village
to strangers whose presence (luring a part
of the year is a source of pleasure and prof
it, and is a blessing without a drawback. 1
Mr. Northrop's earnest and untiring efforts
to create a love for beautiful rural homes
entitle him to unstinted praise.
S[is H .Recommend..
Some time since a Detroit merchant was d
in want of a clerk, and he advertised the p
fact. Among the numerous applicants
who sent in recommedations was a young
man who had shortly before received a let- i
ter from the old man Blank, to the effect «
that any further visits to his house on the tl
part of the young man could not be per- I
mitted,; and that "Mary's" future husband si
was already selected. In his haste and ex- u
citement he forwarded this note in place of B
a recommendation from a mercantile f
house, and on discovering his mistake, he O
called upon tile merchant to secure the d,
"Ah !" said the merchant, as the young A
man entered, "you can begin here to-mor

man, but the merchant interrupted:- b:

A young nian living in Jersey came in- d4
to town one day last week to buy a pres

ing transfixed by the grotesque display f
in one of the dry-goods windows, he en

to a pretty young lady behind the counter. el
"Hown much are those?" he inquired,
pointing to a pair of handsomely-wrought, tI
nickel-plated garterslin the.window.

lady, handing out the articles in question
aud slightly blushing.

to obtain somebody else's opinion.

continued the young man. G

the young man, picking up one of the c9

A Remarkable Discovery of a see
Iauruer ax aer uuu. .
The following account of a murder which ta
was committed in Bermuda in the autumn th
of 1878 is taken fromn a letter written to
Gen. Sir J. H. Lefroy, C. B., F. R. S.,
lately Governor of these islands, and au- po
thor of the "Annals of Bermuda,'" by the of
Attorhey-General of the islands, Mr. S. t,
Brownlow Gray. The mode of discovery t
of the crime is so remarkable that I think
it ought to be put on record, and Sir J. H. t
.efroy has kindly permitted me to make or
extracts from the letter for that purpose. I 8
believe no account of the circumstances of
the case has as yet been published in Eu
rope. There seems to be no likelihood as
to mistake regarding the facts. The spe
cial occurrence could probably only happen
in the tropics in warm water. te
HU.N. MOSELEY. m
In the autumn of 1878 a man committed hi
a terrible .crime in Somerset, which was in
for some time involved in deep mystery. hi
His wife, a handsome and decent mulatto a
woman, disappeared suddenly-and entire- w
ly from sight, after- going- home from lo
church on Sunday, October 20. Suspicion
immediately fell upon the husband, a clev- th
er young fellow of about thirty, but no Ih
trace of the missing woman was left be- he
hind, and there seemed a strong probabil- t
ity that the crime would remain undetectI ti
ed. On Sunday, however, October 27,a am
week after the woman had disappeared, gi
some Somerville boatmen, looking out to- ci
ward the sea, as is their custom,-were ai
struck by observing,. in tieLng. Bay le
Channel, the surface- of which was ruffled pi
by a slight breeze, a long streak of calm a
such as, to use their own illustration, a r
cask of oil usuallydiffuses aroundit when s&
nrr the water. The feverish anxiety about P
the Cin omauggestedsome stranlge ti
connection betweenChia singular calm and I1
the mode of her disappearance. Y
"T' a r, three. .day after-w.x. nit ". 1t
sooner I cannot tell you-her brother and *1
three other men went out to the spot where
it was observed, and from which it had inot
disappeared since- Sunday, and, .with a se
ries of fish-l~ooks ranged along a long line,
dragged the bottom of the cha:tiel, but at
first without suc.ess. Shiftintg the posi
tion of the'boat, they dragged a little fur
ther to windward, and presentlly the line We
was.caught. With water glasses the men
discovered that it had caught in a skeleton
which was .hld down by some heavy Kel
weight. They pulled on the line; somc
thing suddenly gave way, and up ~l~ne.n
the skeleton of the trunk, pelvis, and legs
of a human body, from which almost ev- We
ery vestige- of flesh had disappeared, but
which, fiom the minute fragments re
maining, and the terrible stench, had evi- Mk
dently not lain long in the water.
"The husband was a fisherman, and
Long Bay Channel was a favorite fishing
ground, and he calculated, truly enough, W
that the fish would very soon destroy all
means of identification; but it never en
tered into his head that as they did so their
ravages, combined with the process of de
composition, would set free the nmatter
which was to write the traces of his crime
on the surface of the water. The case I
seems an exceedingly interesting one; tile
calm is inot mentioned in any book on coll
medieal jurisprudence that I have, and the
doctors seem not to have had experience of
such an occurrence. A diver .went down 1PC
and found a stone with a rope attached, by i .
which the body had been held down, and Ml
also portions of the scalp and of the skin
of the sole of the foot, and of clotiing, by
means of which the body was identified.

A Flag of Truce. F
General Gordon, in a recent account of
scenes connected with the surrender of -
Lee's army, gives an amusing instance of
the undress condition in which soldiers
in the field sometimes find themselves.
General Gordon had determined to send a
flag of truce to General Sheridan, and for
that purpose summoned Major Hunter, of
his staff, and told him to carry a flag of i
The general told him to get one.
He replied, "General, we have no flag

A City Built of Shells. C
Perhaps you do not know that the city of
Paris is built mostly of shells, the cast-off
houses of uncounted millions of little crea
tures. Each shell is not as big as a millet
seed, and the little creatures lived in them
ages ago. There were so many of them in
the sea that they settled into real moun
tains, became cememted together, and now
the mountains of shells form the quarries
where most of the Paris building stone is
procured. The shells are shaped like that
of a snail, and are so plentiful in the Paris
stone that one (cubic) inch- is said to con-"
tain fifty-eight thousand of them. Besides
this they are found all over the world, not
only in stone, but in the sands on the

An absent-minded commissioner in at

mencement at Auburn, N. Y., in the re
hurry of the moment, returned to his
home in a neighboring county, leaving or:
his duster at the residence at which he was I
a guest. Upon discovering his loss, he
wrote for the missing garment in the fol
lowing happy and characteristic vein:
"It has always been a comfort to me
that Paul, when he was in Troas; forgot
'his cloak,' and. left it with 'Carpus,' his
host. I am glad to feel that in one point,
though it be a fault, I am .an imitator of
the great Apostle. But Paul's absent
mindedness could not be excused on the
ground that ihe :had been among the ex

anniversary. But whbt was the 'cloak he
left at T.oaewith Carpus?' The Episco-I
paliaiti say it was a.surplice; the Baptists,
a waterproof suit; the Methodists call it a
'ro'igh and reajdy.' But I prefer to de
