Is was quite by accident that Lister
conceived (he idea of utilizing silk
waste. fioingonedayintoaLoudon ware
house, he came upon a pile of rubbish
which strongly nttracted his attention.
Ho had never seen anything like it be
fore. He inquired what it was, and was
told that it was silk waste. "What do
you do with it ?" he asked. "Sell it for
rubbish, (hat isnll," was theanswer ; "it
is impossible to do anything else with
it." Mr. Lister felt it. i.oked I lis rio.so
into it, and pulled it about in a manner
that astonished the Londou warehouse
men. It was neither agreeable to the
feel, the smell, nor the touch ; but sim
ply a mass of knotty, dirty, impure stuff,
full of bits of stick nml dead mulberry
leaves. In the end Mr. Lister made (ho
offer of a halfpenny a pound for the
"rubbish, ' and the sale was then and
there concluded, the vendor being espec
ially pleased to got rid of it on such ad
vantageous terms. When Mr. Lister got
this "rubbish" down to Manningham, he
spent a good deal of time in analyzing
and dissecting it, and he came to the
conclusion that there was something to
bo done with il. Ho found silk waste
was treated all the world over as ho had
soon if treated in the London warehouse
as "rubbish." Ho built new machin
ery and imported skilled workmen, and
in the end conquered his diflicnltv. Itut
ho spent nearly two millions of dollars
in perfecting machinery for tho manu
facture of silk waste before ho over
made a single shilling by it. Now,
thanks to Ins perseverance, everything
that enters within the gates of the Man-
ningham Mills is utilized in somo shape
or other, a Surprising variety of articles
being produced from silk waste. The
following may bo enumerated by way of
example : Silk velvets, velvets with a
silk pile and a cotton back, silk carpets,
plush, velvet ribbons, imitation seal
skin, corded ribbons, sowing silks,
Japanese silks, poplins, silk cleaning
cloths for machinery, bath-towels, floor
cloths, dish-cloths, and so forth. And
all these from the once despised silk
waste ! Tho consequence has been that
silks have been greatly cheapened, and
that a material which was regarded as
worthless has come to have it value in the
taken, there is little fear of any sudden
or dangerous lowering of the animal
heat. Walking can be done with greater
ease and comfort if tho clothes be light ;
and it is a very easy thing (o have them
made of materials that aro both light
and warm. The chest in people ad
vanced in years needs all the protection
you can give it ; and here I tell you
something worth remembering: the
back requires pro(ociion from tho cold
as much if not more than the breast, and
yet protectors are nearly always worn on
the chest only a mistake that is fatal to
thousands. The custom of taking cor
dials, generally of a vinous nature, to
keep up the animal heat, is a very bad
one. Aever take a cordial of any kind
if you can really do without it. If one

should consult a medical man on the
subject, and do exactly as he advises.
There is no light like the light of day;
the lower animals seem to know this,

should never forget that candles, lamps,
ami gas all consume our precious oxy
gen, and produce poisonous carbonic
acid gas ; and the larger the burner, the
greater the amount of oxygen consumed,
and the more the need for perfect venti

Never begin to road or write or sow for

Nover sleep so that on tho first waking

The lloKest Place on Earth.
A singular phenomenon is reported
from Aden. A heavy shower of rain has
actually fallen there, and the Arabs and
other inhabitants feel at a loss to ac
count for il. Such was the effect of tho
down-pourthat tho air afterward became
so cool that Europeans could tolerate a
light overcoat, and Arabs and Aby.in
ians their cotton cloth, without feeling
in tho least discommoded. This is truly
a wonderful state of matters for Aden,
Which is tho ordy station tho British
possess on the coast of Arabia. It has
the unenviable reputation of being tho
hottest place in tho world. Situated al

far from that celebrated Bab-el-Man-deb,
or Gate of Tears, which tho Arabi
an and Indian navigators at ono time
never on(ered without believing that in
all probability they would never survive
either tho shoals or tho calm, stifling
heat of (ho Red Sea. Aden is built at
tho foot of a baro volcanic rock, and is
not much of tenor visited by a refresh
ing breeze than it is by rain. British
soldiers, whose lot has cast them upon
that bleak spot of earth tell wicked

The fish markets in Norway are worth
seeing. We went to one in Clu istiann.
The fish men nnd women were all seat
ed in their boats alongside the stone
pavements, shut in from outer water by
great locks. Servants and housowives,
with great tin baskets hanging on their
nrms, were bargaining foi (he day's din
ner. Codfish, mackerel, eels and lob
sters WON in abundance. Anchovies
or n small fish so-called might almost
bo counted by (ho million. The fish
women, with their loud voices, were
contending with their customers as
thev have from time immemorial, and
will to flic end about price. Now, one

twelve years these showers havu become
more and more frequent, nnd now they

Old navigators of tho Red Son are con
