Another Egyptian Treasure.
Some twenty years ago a Mr. A. C.
Harris went with Ida daughter, Miss
Selima Harris, on a tour to Egypt. He
fotind under the floor of an old tomb in
Thebes a large roll of papyrus covered
with inscriptions. It was one hundred
and thirty-nine feet by sixteen and a half
inches broad, and looked something like
a stair carpet. Mr. Harris bought it at
a comparatively small price. Miss Selima
Harris felt convinced that it was a treas
ure, and to make sure against accidents
she set herself to the immense work of
tracing sign and letter on it upon paper
of .equal extent. She succeeded in mak
ing a facsimile of it. Her father died and
the lady took a house at Koumel Dyk,
Alexandria. A few years ago an explo
sion occurred in the house, which was re
duced to fragments. Of its contents the
two chief treasures alone escaped un
harmed, the papyrus and Miss Selima
herself. The great Egyptian archaolo-
gist, M. Brugsch. Key, examined the papy
rus and told the khedive of its great
value, and the Fgvptian government
offered the sum of 2,000 for it. But
Miss Harris would not part with it. She
brought it to England, when the British
museum purchased it for a larger sum,
and from that time to this Dr. Birch ana
his corps of Egyptologists have been de
ciphering it, while scribes have been en
gaged in copying it. It has now lieen
printed in a sufficient number to supply
the museums of Europe, and of America,
if they want it with accompanying
translations of the text and learned notes
It proves to lie a complete record of
the life and works of Rameses III., and
a statement of the condition of things at
Theles 3,000 years ago. We learn from
it what the Thcbans saw and heard at
church and what they had for dinner,
such as fish, water-fowl, pigeons, oil,
bread and wine. We are introduced to
the leauties of Rameses's harem. Much
of the record i- remarkably realistic, but
it is somewhat confusing to find that !
among these realistic portions is an ac
count of how Rameses III. went to hell
and there played at draughts with Isis
for the golden kerchief, which he won.
Moreover the last five sections of the
scroH consist of an address a sort of
valedictory uttered from Jthe same re
gion ( Hades) by the monarch, in which
he recites the great victories he has
achieved, the hundreds of thousands of
cattle he has bestowed on the temples,
the slaves he has presented them, and
implores them to be loyal to his eucces"
sor, Ramwes IV. Such a mixture of
possible fact and certain fable may puzzle
any one who tries to bring actual history
out of the papyrus; but one thingstands
out clear the character of Rameses
himself. The half million head of cattle
he claims to have bestowed on the gods
may be as mythical as his game of
draughts with Isis, the Egyptian Proser
pine, but whether in hell or earth the
sultanic self satisfaction of Rameses III.
There is a statue of George III. in the
Guildhall, with an inscription placed
there during hie lifetime by aldermanic
courtier?, in which the characteristics
of the angel Gabriel are attributed to"
him, with a few of the selectest attrib
utes of the seven sages. The jxor king
was mad at the time and England was
ground under the heel of the prince
regent; nevertheless the true portrait of
the king and his times may be derived
therefrom by one who can read between

The following is the text of the pres
ident's message concerning the electoral
To the Si-uate of lb I unci State- :
I followed the example heretofore oc
casionally presented." of communicating
in this mode jny approval of the act to
provide for and regulate the counting
of the votes for president and vice pres
ident, and the decision ot questions aris
ing thereon, because of mv appreciation
of the eminent peril to the institutions o(
the country, from which, in my judg
ment, the act aflords wise and constitu
tional means of escape. For the first
time in the history ot our country, under
the constitution as it is now, dispute ex
ists with regard to the result of the elec
tion of a chief magistrate of the nation.
It is understood that utKin the disposition
of the disputes touching the electoral votes
cast at the late election by one or more
of the states deiKnds the question
whether one or the other of the candi
dates for the-presidency is the .awful
chief magistrate. The importance of
having clearly ascertained bv procedure
regulated by law which of the two citi
zens has been elected, and of who, having
the right to this high office, recognized
and cheerfully agreed in by all the peo
ple of the republic, cannot be overesti
mated, and leads me to express to con
gress and to the nation my great satisfac
tion at the adoption of a measure that
afford orderly means of decision of gravely
exciting questions. While the history
of our country in its early period shows
that the president ot the senate has
counted the votes and declared their
standing, our whole h:story shows that
in n instance ot doubt or dispute lias lie
exercised the power of deciding, and that
the two houses of congress have disposed
of all such doubts and disputea al
though in no instance hitherto nave they
been 'such that their decision could es
sentially have affected the result. For
the first tune, then, the government or
the United States is now brought to
meet the question as one vital to the
result, and his under conditions not
the best calculated to produce agree
ment ci o induce a calm feeling
in the several branches ot the govern
ment or amoiijT the people of the coun
try. In a case where, as now, the result
is involved, it is the highest duty of the
law-making power to provide in advance
a constitutional, orderly and just method
of executing the constitution in this
most interesting and critical clause of
its provisions. The bill, so far from be
ing a compromise of Ihe riht, is an en
forcement'of the light and an execution
of the Kvers conferred by ihe constitu
tion on congress. I think ihat this or
derly method has lieen secured by the
bill, which appealing to the constitution
and law as a guide in ascertaining the
rights, provides means of deciding ques
tions of single returns through direct
action of congrcs. and in congress, and
in respect to double returns by a tribunal
of iuquirv, whose decisions stand unless
both houses ot congress shall concur in
determining otherwise, thus securing a
defin t disposition ot all oupstions oi
dispute in whatever aspect they may
arise. With or without this law, as all
the states have voted, it is impoM-ible,
it must lie that one of the two candidates
has been elected, and it would be de
plorable to witness an irregular contro
versy as to which of the two should re
ceive, or which continue to hold the
office. In all records of history contro
versies have arisen as to succession or
choice of chiefs of staUs; and no party or
citizen loving their country and its
free institutions can sacrifice too
much of mere feeling in preserving,
through upright course of law, their
country from the smallest danger to its
peace on euch an occasion; and it cannot
be impressed too firmly in the hearts of all
people that tiue liberty and real p'oarets
can exist only through a cheerful ablior
ence to constitutional law. The bill pur
ports to provide only lor the settlement
of questions arising from recent elec
tions. The fact that such questions can
arise demonstrates the necessity which
I cannot doubt will, bsfore long be sup
plied, of permanent general legislation
to meet cases which have not been con
templated in the constitution or laws of
the country. The bill may not be per
fect, and its provisions may not lie uch
as would be best applicable to all future
occasions, but it is calculated to meet
the present conditions of the. ) nest ions
of tht country. Th country is agitated;
it needs and it desires jicace and quiet
and harmony between all parties and all
sections. Its industries are arrested,
labor unemployed, capital idle and enter
prise paralyzed by reason of doubt aud
anxiety attending the uncertainty of a
double claim to the chief magistracy of
"the nation. It wants to be assured that
the result of the election will lie accepted
without persistence from the sup;tortera
of the disappointed candidate, and that
its highest officer shall not hold his place
with a questioned title of right. Be
lieving that the bill will secure these
ends, I give it my signature.

Mothers lo Other Women's Son.
We think there are other things r.till
in the way of counteraction against bar
rooms and liouor saloons which it lies
on mothers ana sisters to bring into use.
A beautiful, bright, cheerful home
atmosphere is a great safeguard to a son
or a brother. Believe us, dear women,
even though you are tired, though your
head aches, though you feel of all things
in the world like slipers and easy chairs,
it is worth while to cast off your fatigue
and entertain the young men of the
household, as you would entertain whom
you cared to honor. Have extra lights
and let the parlor look glowing and in
viting. Play your new pieces, sing your
new songs, and ask in the pretty daugh
ter of your next door neighbor, or the
merry girls from over the way, and have
a good time at home. Then, too, we
have often thought that every woman
who is a mother ought to have a moth
erly feeling for other women's sons.
They come to our city in scores, boys
from farm houses and from fishing vil
lages, and what sort of home do they
find ? Their salaries are small, the1 v want
to save something to send to Oie Id
folks, or to lay by for future use, and the
price of board is high. Now, why can
not our homes be made to open wider
doors to just this class 1 We once knew
r lady who, every Thanksgiving and
Christmas, was accustomed to gather
about her dinner table all the young
men and women she could hear of who
had no homes to go to on these festal
days, and we thought it a lovely thing
to do, because so full of the inspirations
and essence of christian kindness. How
many times might a motherly hand laid
upon his shoulder, a womanly hold upon
his heart, rave a young man from drift
ing into temptations that he cares little
for in themselves, but which attract him
because he i lonely and oppressed.
Shifting or the Wheat Belt.
The St. Louis Republican publishes an
interesting article on the subject of the
culture of wheat. It claims that the
wheat belt is shifting from the north
western states to the more middle,
western and southwestern states. The
results of wheat-growing in Minnesota,
Iowa and Wisconsin, according to Mr.
Oliver Dalyrimple, during a Wroid of
twenty years, show a steady decline of
production. Starting with a production
of twenty-two to twenty-five bunhcl per
arre, the vield inside of five years drop-
jjedto nineteen to twenty bushels. Ia
i ne next live years the drop was to niteen
to seventeen bushel, and in the next five
years it was to ten to twelve bushels,
until now it is estimated that Minnesota
will not prjduce more than seven to nin
bushels of wheat to the acre.
It ia assumed that at this rate wheat
growing will be abandoned in the stales
named, and the attention of fanners
there turned to the production of corn
and other articles lew calculated to ex
haust the soil. However this may lie,
we have long believed it wa only a ques
tion of time for more southerly states to
take the lead in wheat cull lire as pos
sessing the climate and soil best adapted
to the production of that cereal. The
flour best suited to foreign commerce is
made from wheat crown in southern Illi
nois, southern Missouri. Kentucky, Ten
nessee and Kansas, and to this list of
states there will be speedily added Ar
kansas, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico
and the Indian country. Ate" Orlcait

Every year, aliout Christmas, writ.?
Moncure I). Conway in one of his letter
from Ixmdon, a little pamphlet is sent
around to those interested in t lie religi
ous phenomena of India, giving some ac
count of the year's progress of the Brah
mo Somaj', Theistic church of that coun
try. This year we learn that their
blanches that its churches, each of
which has small affiliated societies
amount to one hundred. Tills repre
sents the lalxirs ol forty-seven year, !nd
the results are not small if the condition
of India and the far-reaching nature ot
the religious and social heresies tr the
new society are taken into consideration.
The Brali mo Soiuaj owes its erigin to
Rajah Rani Mohun Rov. He founded,
three and a half years before his death
(Jan. K."!0), what he called society of
God, and tiie anniversary is still kept
with great solemnity, called Maghotsab
(feast of Magh, or January), and lasting
about a week. This rajah had for his
object to induce his conn try nu n to for
sake idolatry and to unite persons e,f all
creeds in a simple monotheistic worship.
He translated the moral portions of the
New Testament.omitting all miracles as
tending in his opinion, ts foster bcli-.f in
similar miracles told of Hindu gods, and
therefore likely lo encourage superstition.
The untimely death of the ra:nh lc't the
society without a leader for
nine years, when there arose (ill
able man, 1 lehaiidra Nath Tagorc,
who gathered up the society, es
tablished a journal, printed some treat
ises for distribution, and did the still
more important woik of inducing the
worshijiers to give up their lielief in t lie
divine authority ol their bible (the
vedas). Af.er the Brahmos ceased, thus,
to be a vedantic red. they flourished
steadily, and had already a good many
branches when their present leader,
IiAltl KF.SHl ll ('HI NI'KK HI'S,
united with them. IU"fore his time it
had been chiefly an intellect tial ly beret ical
movement, but Sen was much impresied
with the inconsistency of tin ir position
with many of the customs and practical
principles of India, which had grown
out of the old creed. Ni he h- gan to
preach of a new line of return:, the abol
ition of caste, and the emancipation of
the women from Zezana. Thispradually
caused a divergence l-tvceii the con
servative and progressive elements of the
Somaj, and at lenuth the younger wing
detached itself eleven years ago leav
ing behind all the projierty, Lut carrying
off all the vital prin'ioles ol the move
ment. The present "Brahma Somaj of
India" is this freh organization of IHi'iii,
which elected unanimously God as "the
head of the Somaj," and has never bad
any human president. The principlesof
the society were successfully started in
the same year by Sen at the opening of
the Metropolitan church of the society
