FARM ASD HOUSEHOLD.
Whj rarmlof Dmi not Fay.
The reason why bo many men fail to
make farming a success is simply because
they fail to make it a business. They at
once conclude that "farming doetn't
pay," and then go to work in such a
manner as to utterly exclude the possi
bility of it ever raying. As a rule the
successful merchant follows no other
but that of trade. The lawyer or phy
sician who attains eminence in his pro
fession devotes his time, energies and
talent to that profession. The artisan
who becomes ekilled in his calling makes
diligent use of his time, and works for
the accomplishment of one purpose, the
master of his loving art. Not only does
this theory hold true of all other branches
ofbusineM, but holda true of farming.
The successful farmer doe nothing for a
livelihood but farm it. It he has money
he invests it in a way that will improve
his farm. He informs himself as to his
business, and goes to Work in an intelli-
fent manner. Upon such farms weeds
o not stand an high as a man's head, nor
fences neglected, buildings dilapidated,
farming implements left exposed to the
weather, and stock unsheltered and un
wed for, but everything denotes thrift
and enterprise. It is is really painful to
go about the country and observe the
number of neglected farms. Tigs, ccese
ducks and cattle are allowed al
most unlimited ranee. Weeds lender
the dooryard, the orchard.-the meadow
even, unsightly. The .good wife in addi
tion to her household cares, must milk
the cows, feed the pies, and do the
."chores" generally. Where and how
does he spend his time? He is across
the way hanging on his neighbor's fence,
talking po itica, or he is in the nearest
store or black-mith shop talking gossip
1 r.aps he is inspired with a desiie to
mate some money, and is out "huck
stering, or what is less laudable, selling
a patent right," that may be useful or
not just as it happens. But while he is
earning a i Jew dollars away fr0m home,
many dollars are being lost at home, be

The art of sweeping a carpet well is
nei le-7,Uirwg a SB0d deal of practice
and skill. Many never learn it properly.
It is done in three different ways. First,
by those who draw or thrust a broom
?6r v' ,r,ai? much dnst' and leave more
than half the dirt behind, to be ground
by careless feet. .Secondly, bv those
who sweep clean, but Who, in 'driving
the broom in flourishing semi-circles be
fore them, break of the splints and rai.e
suffocating clouds of dust. Thirdly,
and rightly, by drawing, cot pushing
the broom, making strong and rather
short strokes, and taking special care not
to give an upward flourish at the end of
each. Give a rather light touch, and
not scrape the broom over the carpet.
Unless a carpet is verv dirty, neither
tea leaves nor wet fragments of paper,
nor moist grass are necessary in gather
nig the dust. They often soil the carpet
by forming minute particles of mud ;
and it the broom becomes moist it de
faces the baso-board unless carefuliy
used. Do not begin at one side of the
room and sweep the dirt over and over
until it reaches the other side. This
process will be Bure to work a part into
clean portions of" the carpet, if there is
much dirt on other parts. But take up
on a dust pan all the heavy portions as
soon as swept together. For the same
reason, a dust pan should be used for
each step of a set of stairs, instead of
sweeping the whole from top to bottom.
For the latter purpose a short handed
broom is most convenient.

Sliced Oranges. There are many
way of preparing them for delicious des
serts, besides the most common one of
slicing with sugar. Even this way may
be varied by sprinkling in between the
layers grated or dessicated cocoanut. In
any style of preparation it is of great im
portance to prepare it a few hours before
it is wanted.
Orange Salad. Teel one dozen
oranges and cut in slices, put in layers in
a glass dish, sprinkling plentifully with
sugar. Squeeze over this the juice of
six oranges, and pour over all a glass of
wine or brandy. Sweet oranges are best
for this dish with very little sugar, but
Messinas are very good well sweetened.
Anothf.rStyi.e. Cut several oranges
into slices one-eighth of an inch thick ;
remove the pits and place the slices upon
a flat glass dish, one piece half covering
the next until the whole surface f the
dish is covered. Sift pulverized sugar
over all and pour over a glass of any
good liquor, and in two hours it is ready
to serve. Peach salad is made in the
same way, but sherry wine is the only
liquor suitable for peaches.
Orange Marmalade To one pound
of crushed sugar allow one pound of
oranges with the rind on. Then pare off
the yellow rind of the oranges, and put
it, over me nre in coin water ; cover very
tight and simmer till tender, (irate the
yellow rind of the remaining oranges and
set aside. Quarter the oranges and
squeeze out the juice and pulp, removing
the seeds and white skin. Put the sugar
in the kettle, and to each pound add one
pint of cold water; allow the white of
ne eesr to every two pounds ef suear.
When the sugar is all dissolved, put it
over tne nre ; let it boil, and skim till
quite clear and thick ; take the boiled
parings and pound to a paste in a mortar;
put this in the syrup ; Doil and stir ten
minutes, then add the pulp juice and
grated rind : boil all together for half an
hour, till it is a transparent mass.
Lemons may be prepared the some way
out require more sugar.
Orange Marmalade, Scotch Style.
Score the oranges in quarters, and peel
them; carefully remove all the white
skin and leave only the yellow rind,
which put on the fire, with plenty of
cold water, and boil till soft. Squeeze
the juice and pulp keeping out the
white skin and seeds. Put it on the fire
with as many pwuuds of loaf sugar as
you have of oranges, weighed before they
are cut. When boiled half an hour add
the yellow rinds, which must be cut into
chips; boil until it jellies, and the chips
are cooked through, and transparent and
Orange Pudding, reel and slice
three or four oranges, and Jay in a pud

Okasge Cake. There are several
ways to make orange cake, all excellent.
I will give three of my best rules : First,
mix two cups of sugar well with the
yolks of two eggs, then add the whites,

spoonful of butter, then one cup of milk;
thicken to the consistency of pound
cake with flour in which has been dis

THE BLACK HILLS.
Am Inters.' Una- Story from One TO tio Ham
. Ileea There People Ad rimed
A Chronicle reporter -yesterday inter
viewed the most famous and successful
person, perhaps, that ever went to and
returned from the Black hills without
getting his scalp faced. Tis person is W
P. Wheel r, who is now stopping in Oak
land with bis brother, C. C. Wheeler,
proprietor of the Windsor house. This
is the same W. P. Wheeler whose name
frequently occurred some six months
since in eastern dispatches relating to the
sr.an.ing iiom me ttiacK bills or the
Wheeler party with "1,500 pounds of
goia oust, speculations as to their
meeting with Indians, and finally their
arrival at Laramie and Cheyenne with
" 800 pounds of gold dust," and their
subsequent departure for the east. After
relating to Mr Wheeler what little he
knew of the Black hills country, and
what he had heard and read or the
heeler party, and asking an infinite
uu in ocr ui queaiions, tne reporter was
enabled to make the following condensed
recnai 01 mat gemieman a remarks:
MR. WHEELER'S STORY.
"X was one of a party of nine that ar

nveu in me imck nuts country in
March, 1 876. I deem myself a practical
miner, bavin? bad experience in that
line in 1853. and subseauentlv in Cali
fornia. I went like thousands of others
to the Black hills to see what I could
see and to make all the money I could.
I did considerable tramping around for
tnree montns, ana learned that the dis
trict known as the Black hills consists
ot an oblong clump of hills covering an
area of about one hundred miles long by
from forty to fifty wide. Most of the
hills are small, only several reaching to
an altitude ot. from 1,400 to 1,500 feet
above the surrounding plains. The hilly
country is densely overgrown with tall
and shapely black pine trees, many ot
whoe trunks are from three to four feet
in diameter. The numerous so-called
mines in that country have no names,
but are numbered. In the month of
June, last year, I purrhased for $1,500
what is there called a mine and a half,
four hundred and fifty feet, known as
No. 2. It is located one and a half miles
from Deadwood city, and within one
half mile of Gayville, on Deadwood
creek, which, with Whitewood creek,
forms a j unctien at Dead woe d city. No.
"THE RICHEST MINE
ever discovered in the hills; there is
nothing but placer diggings in that ter
ritory. I werked from twenty to thirty
men, and have taken out in one day as
much as f 1,000. I ran two set of sluice
boxes day and ni'eht for several months.
and at the end of the first fifty days, I
remember, I had taken out J43.000.
This created great excitement through
out the hills, and was exaggerated a
hundred fold by the Pioneer, the paper
published at Deadwood. I sold No. 2 in
September for $3,000, believing that it
was a bier price, for I concluded I had
nothing left but dead ground, yet my
purchaser was anxious and I didn't
object to his $3,000. I carefully studied
the placer digcings, behevine the whole
territory was like many of the old min
ing districts of California to-dav. about
' played out.' As many as 15,000 pecple
visited that country last year ; but fully i
as many returned. Of the latter class
you seldom hear, for the Deadwood
paper and those at the supply towns
along the Union Pacifie railroad have
always persisted in maintaining
AN OMINOCS SILENCE.
There are manv more people in the i
hills who would like to return to the
States, but have not the means to even
get for themselves the necessary pro
visions to last them on the tramp of 350
miles to Uneven ne, and are there wait
ing, Micawber-like, for something to turn
up. 1 advise all my friends to avoid the
Black hills. That vast army of idle
men have, in their extremity, thoroughly
prospected the entire country, but no
leads have ever been found ; they have
found come quartz, but not in sufficient
quanti'y to pay for working it. It is
the most overrated yl&ce 1 ever saw.

or what is called French creek, for it is
simply a small ravine witn no water in

they regard them with a superstitious
awe, because of the frightful and lasting
thunder and lighting storms that prevail
there. The Indians prefer to live out on
the plains. I have seen it stated in the
papers interested in having people go to
the hills that certain mines have been
sold for $50,000 and $60,000; but after
investigating the negotiation it would be
found that f.W or ?bJ was nearer the

THE OTTOMAN NAVY.
Coadltlana. Iiakfn, A
Kffleteney u Dlaelpltne.
The imperial Ottoman navy consists
at the present time of fifteen iron-clads,
five wooden frigates, eleven wooden cor
vettes, two gurT vessels nd eleven gun
boats, seven ot which are armor-plated.
In addition to these vessels, which may be
considered aa the efficient portien of the
fighting part of the navy, there are
seven large transpcrts, five of them paddle-wheel
steamers and the other two
screw-ships, six fast dispatch-vessel paddle-wheel
steamers and two imperial
yachts, which, on occasion, are also em
ployed in the public service.
Besides the ships thus enumerated
there are three old wooden line-of-battle
ships and a few a nail c'aooners in com
mission, aa well as four very smart
schoonei-risrsred screw-steamere for the
revenue service. The official navy list
represents a much greater lorce than is
here represented, as tne names oi a num
ber of old v ooden hulks are still retained,
and also of a few steamers which, from
the length of service they have seen, are
in anything but an efficient condition,
sm of little, use as either transports or
fighting cratt. But the object being to
enable the reader to form" a correct idea
as to the strength and value of the im
perial Ottoman navy these have been
purposely left out of the consideration.
To commence then, with the iron-clad
fleet, which in point of numbers, strength
of construction and armantnt is, after
that of England, one of the mot power
ful in the world, ui tne niveen iron
clads ef which it is composed lour
namely, the Mahrtondieh, Orcbantich,
Osmanieh and Azizich are broadside
frigates with four-inch armor plates and
carry, each of them, sixteen heavy
Armstrong guns (fourteen on the main
deck), one hundred and fifty ponders, and
two revolving (pivot) guns on the upper
deck. one. a three hundred pounder, at
the stem. ( These vessels are each of
4,231 tons, and their horse power nine
hundred.) Then there are lour of an
other class box battery ships, as they
are sometimes called, built after a de
sign bv Mr. Reed. C. B., in which the
attempt is male to secure the advant
aires of a turret ship by giving them a
certain amount ot all-atound fire while
retaining the stability of a broadside
craft. The names of these vessels are as
follows : Fethi Bulend (Great Victory),
Mouani Zaffir, Avni Illali ( Gift of God)
and the Mukadenieh Khair, (Happy Be
ginning). The Fethi Bulend and
Mukadenieh Khair are sister ships,
having been constructed upon the same
lines, the first named in England, by the
Thames Iron Works company, and the
other at the Imperial arsenal at the
Golden Horn. They are both very formid
able craft, being protected with nine-inch
armor plating and earring tour Arm
strong 121-ton guns in a central battery,
with the ports so arranged aa to admit of
tore and aft nre. lneir tonnage la
1,601 6-10 tons and the horse power of
their engines is 500. The other two
the Meuany Zaffir and Avni Illah are
of the same type, but their armor plat
ing is not quite so thick nor their guns
so heavy. They are not quite so Iaree
either, their tonnage being only 1,399
and their horse power 400.
The next on the list are the four iron
clads originally intended for the khedive
of Egypt. These (vessels, named re
spectively the Arsary Shefket, the Nedj
mi Shetket, the Arsary Tebyk and the
lilalieh, form a seperate class again to
the others, as they carry their armament
in broadside ports in a central battery,
protected against fore and aft fire by
armor-plated bulkheads. The two first
are sister ships : they each carry four
guns (200 pounders) on the main deck
and a heavy gun mounted on a revolving
platform on the upper. Iney were con
structed at Trieste in 1870 ; the thick
ness of their armor-plating is some six
and a half inches, tonnage 1,583 and
horse power 350. TheArsary Tcfyk is a
much larger vessel than the last named
craft, her tonnage being 3,143 and'horse-
powei 750. She carries eignt guns, also in
her broadside ports, of the same caliber
as the others, and though the thickness
of her, armor i- about the same, she is a
much finer vessel. The Ijlalieh differs
again from the others in size and horse
power, though her armament is tne same
as that of the two first mentioned vessels
of this class, and is also the case with the
armor plating. This ship, as well as the
Arsary Tetyx, is oi v rencn construction;
her tonnage is 1,650 and the horse power
of her engines 300.
Two turret vessels and one more targe
iror-jlad frigate complete the list of sea
Ihe Louthfi Dielil and Hiftzi Ramin
are twin screw ships, carrying each of
them four guns 150 pound Armstrongs
in two separate revolving turrets, pro
tected by seven inch armor plating.
Their tonnage is 1,751 'and horse-power
The Messondieh, the last on the list
and the latest addition to the iron-clad
fleet, is one of the most formidable ships
afloat, being a finer vessel than the
British iron-clad Hercules, the flagship
of the Mediterranean fleet. She carries
fourteen guns, twelve and a ball tons.
Woolwich pattern (the most approved
type in England), and the thickness
other defensive armor is'twelve inches.
The tonnage of the Messondieh is
5 310 and the horse power of her
magnificent engines is 1,200. She
was built by the Thames Iron-works
Company, and was only launched in the
fall of 1875. Iv addition to the advan
tage this ship posses in having such pow
erful broadside armament, by special ar
rangement in her construction the end
ports on each side admit of those guns
being trained almost on a line with her
The seven iron clad gunboats, which
were specially built for service on the
Danube, are named as follows: Fethi
Islam (Modem Victory), Buyourdelan
(Heart Piercer), bemandereb, bcodra,
Podgoritza, Isber (Lion), and Saffeh
(Sword). These craft an general draw
about five feet six inches ot water, and
are armed with two light Armstrong
guns. They are protected by a belt of
three-and-a-half inch armor, and are fit
ted with eighty horse-power engines,
The first five on the list are already on
the Danube, stationed at Widdin, and
F laced under the command of Kiritlee
luessein Pacha, an active officer of the
imperial navy. The other two were
launched but a short time ago at the
arsenal up the Golden Horn, and are of
a much improved type. They are each
fitted with a revolving turret, in which
are mounted two Krupp runs, eighty
pounders, and are propelled by twin
screws, worked by seperate engines. At
the present moment they are lying at a
buoy off Tophanch, receiving their stores
preparatory to leaving for the Danube
which they will do with all dispatch
All tne vessels wnicn eave been men
mentioned up to the present are in com
mission, and of the fifteen large iron
clads, ten are either cruising with Hobart
Pacha, or are in station at different ports
of the Levant, there being but five at
Constantinople at the present moment
the wooden vessels.
To turn now to the wooden vessels,
which have their value as cruisers, guard
ships or transport, the number of the
frigates are as follows : Selimich, of 50
guns, bW norse power and 4,717 tons;
the Ertogrul, of 50 gune, 600 herse pow
er and 2,344 tons; the Hundevendehair,
of 60 guns, 600 horse power and 2,807
tons: the Mukbiri Soroor, of 21 guns.
450 horse power and 1,477 tons. These
four ships are in commission and cruising
about in the ivevani, tne last-named be
ing the training ship for the naval ca
dets. The Nasul Aim, the last on the
list of the frigates, has just been thor
oughly repaired, and is now being fitted
tor sea. rbe is pierced for 50 guns, her
tonnage is l.oiz, and norse power 450.
Ihe armament ot these vessels consists
principally of smooth-bore guns, forty-
two pounders, with here and there a
sixty-eight pounder, but on the upper
deck they all carry very h v revolving
VPivowj guns oi tne latest pattern.
The corvettes are named respectively
Sinope, Edinieh, MusBafir, Leuban,
M nseurah, Broussa, Ismir, Iskerderia,
Outaric, Mayzec and Zouave. They are
all pierced either for twelve or fourteen
guns; and their tonnage ranges from 750
o 800, and the horse power of their
engines la lou. lneir armament, like
that of the frigates, consists chiefly f
smooth-bore guns ot small caliber, with
a heavy rifle revolving gun on the fore
castle. The vessels are all absent from
Constantinople on service, four of them
being stationed in the Adriatic ; one at
Trebizond, in the Black sea ; two in the
Red sea; two up the Persian gulf, and
the others in the Levant. The two gun
vessels the Sedkul Bahar and Beirut
6 vch carry five guns, one heavy and the
other of fight caliber, and are generally
employed on service in the Red sea. The
four gunboats, called respectively the
Akya, Shefxet, Sunneb and Varna, are
fitted with sixty horse power engines
and carry each of them light guns. Of
the three old wooden line-of-battle ships
one, the Shadieh, is employed as the
gunnery ship, and is stationed up the
mlf of Tsmid : one. the Fetigeh. is the
depot ot Klet, and the other, the Peki
ZAflier. in the receiving ship at the
Golden Horn, having taken the place of
the old Mabmondien. whicn nas since
been broken up.
The strength of the personnel is set
down officially aa 1.921 officers of all
ranks and 15.000 men. in which are in
rinded 3.500 marines. Besides these
men. however, there are the "redifs,"
who have already served their time in
the navv. and whose number may be
safclv set down as another 15,000. It
can not be said that the crews of the
iron-clads have had all the training that
is necessary to make them good and
efficient seamen, yet still a good deal has
been done in the way of gunnery drill,
and attempts have been made of late by
changing the crews of the cadet training
frigate after each voyage to afford as
many of these men as possible the oppor
tunity ot acquiring some experience at
sea. A gunnery ship was established
some six years ago. and the services of a
very efficient instructor obtained from
the British government. Nearly the
whole of the men and all the subordinate
officers have passed through a regular
course of drill on board of the said ship,
and a number of the most intelligent
among the latter have been specially
trained as gunnery instructors, so that,
in imitation of the British navy, each of
the iron clads has now its gunnery officer.
charged with the duty of keeping the
men up to the mark in their gun drill.
Foreign officers who at different times
have visited the iron-clad fleet in the
Bosphorus have been particularly struck
with the apparent order on poara, tne
general neatness all round and the man
ner in which the men went through their
drill. Their performance with the heavy
runs has been particularly praised, and
there is but little doubt that with more
target pratice they would make iplendid
artillerists. Something has been done in
the way of firing at a target, sufficient
at least to familiarize the men with the
proper manner of using the navel pro
jectiles ot the present day, and the 1 urk
is by nature a good marksman. In the
early part of last summer, also, a flying
squadron was sent to sea under command
of Hasan Pacha, with orders to cruise
under sail in the Mediterranean, visiting
particularly the ports on the African
coast. Glbralter, Marseilles, Malta and
the Adratic. The squadron consisted of
the following corvettes : .bdirne, Mus
seffir, Ismir and Mansourah, and was af
terward joined by the school frigate
Mukbir. Starting from Crete, the ports
of Benjazi, Tripoli and Tunis were each
touched at in succession, the voyage
being always performed under sail and
advantage taken 'of favorable weather
to perform a few simple maneuvers and
to accustom the officers to signalling at
sea. While at Tunis it became neces
sary, on account of the disturbances in
Herzegovina and Bosnia, to send the
squadron to Kleck, so that the cruise
was prematurely broken up, and the
others soon afterward separated on special
Great efforts have been made also at
the navel college to impart as much pro
fessional knowledge to the cadets as pos

the fleet maneuvering and navel tactics
in general, a step has been taken in the
right direction by sending an iron-clad

is ot the utmost importance that the

Tlie Crucifixion By Rabbi
Rabbi E. B. Browne delivered last
week in Irving hall a lecture on the
Crucifixion of Christ," wherein he un
dertook to prove that the Jews are inno
cent of the blood of Christ. The lec
turer said that Mr. Moody and Senator
argent oi vjaniornia, nao, by their re
cent remarks, in which it was charged
that the Jews crucified Christ, called out
the statements be would make in refuta
tion of the accusation. The lecturer
said he would assume, for the sake of an
argument, that all contained in the New
lestament is true and that Christ is God
and, having assumed tht- form of a man
he must be considered as any other mem
oer oi me numan iamiiy. Jesus came
down knowingly to be put to death, and
it was necessary for his plans that his
divine nature should remain a secret,
The question then was, did the Jews
crucify Jesus? are they responsible fo
his death ? do they approve of his assassi
nation 7 do they rejoice in having pa
ticipated in it ? The lecturer went into
an elaborate argument to show that the
whole narrative of Christ's apprehension
trial, conviction and execution, as re
lated in St. Mark's gospel, are at square
issue with the known facta governing
the Hebrew law in such cases. There
could be no doubt but what christ as
pired to be the Messiah, ar Savior of his
people. He performed manv miracles.
but nearly all of them took place in the
wild mountains of Gallilee, where people
were extremely ignorant. Kabbis, too
have been known to perform miracles,
About that time a rabbi caught the
devil, literally, and held him in bondage
ior a good while ; another got hold of the
angel of death's sword so that for a con
siderable period no one could die, and
uod was put to a good deal of trouble in
persuading the rabbi to give up his tre
mendous weapon. Hence it was nothing
extraordinary that Jesus should wor
miracles in Gallilee. The lecturer then
defended Judas Iscarot, and argued that
the money he received was not as a re
ward for a traitorous betrayal of Christ,
but rather because he had tried to have
Jesus conveyed to a place of safety.
Judas was a good and faithful servant of
his great master. V. r. Herald.
Great reliance has been placed on the
use of the tungstate of soda to render
scenery in theaters non-inflammable. It
appears that there is considerable un
certainty in the action of this salt, and
hence a danger of being lulled into a
false security in its use. In lectures at
the royal institution its supposed affi-
cacy had been demonstrated before au
diences, and Dr. Wright caused one of

nis assistants, cioiaeu in a musiiu aress
that had been prepared with the tung
state, to walk about in the midst of
flames. The experiment was repeated
by Dr. AVright at South Kensington, and
then.much to his aatonishment.the dress
took fire and was entirely consumed.
By what seems something more than
mere good fortune, a dummy had been
substituted for the man in this last ex
periment. Why the tungstate failed to
prevent the clothes from taking fire, is
not known. It is believed that no mis
take was made in applying it.

- Joaquin Miller'g Ex-TYlfe.
The San Francisco Post says : Mtes
MinnieTMyrtle has had some reputation
as a writer of beth prose and poetry in
her time, and considerable notoriety as
the wife of the poet Joaquin Miller. She
procured a divorce from him half a dozen
of years since, and the incongruity ot
the pair was undoubted. They possessed
very similar tempers and were each of
them afflicted with wayward literary
tendencies. I have wondered that Min
nie Myrtle did not pursue her literary
career in after years, but she seems to
have droped it. Four years ago she took
the field as a lecturer, with considerable
success, I thought. I had met the lady
a few times and was impressed with her
stvle and appearance. She was not
pretty,' but had the style of beauty that
would become a tragic heroine on the
stage. She certainly had ability that
only needed to be properly directed to
be respected. I was in San Francisco
when she made her debut on the lecture
platform. She impressed the audience
favorably, and, taking her ex-husband
for her theme, she made some terrible
exposures of his faults and lrailties, and
dessicated his poetry with startling effect,
She narrated her early life at Cape
Blanco, on the coast near Port Oxford
the coming of Miller; her shooting an
eagle from the limb of a dead fir that
overlooked the sea: how she and Miller,
when she took him into the surf with her
canoe, were wrecked and washed ashore
by a big wave; how Miller saved himself
with great presence of mind, and how, for
all that, she looked upon him as her yel
low-haired Viking. Knowing her and
knowing him well, I may have heard the
lecture with more than ordinary interest,
She made our hearts thrill when she told
how Miller left her to toil for his children
on the verge of starvation, hungry for
bre&d, and it seemed as if, after this
thrilling commencement, the woman
could continue her public career with
hope ot success ; but suddenly she aban
doned the lecture-stand, and many
thought she was bribed by Miller to quit
exposing their joint lives to the public he
sought to propitiate. It is lately an
nounced that Minnie Myrtle Miller has
become Mrs. lxgan, and that fact must
be a relief to her errant husband, of old
who will feel pleased, perhaps, that she
has ceased to bear his name. X under
stand tht Logan is in rather humble
circumstances, which may not detract
from happiness if other qualities are fa
vorable, but I regret it, as I think she
possesses more genius than practibility,
rather lacking the oualitiei to make
poor man's home a paradise, and not in
clined to be so much a housekeeper as
wayward-minded woman, who sees visions
and dreams dreams of literary successes.
It she were of fortune s favorites, wear
ing the rose-color tints of life, we might
look to hear from her again, or at least
she could preside as the especial divinity
ot an elegant home.
Diseases Spread by Tailors.
The other day a delegation from the
amalgamated society of tailors waited
upon the British government in the per
son of Under-Secretary Cross. The ob
ject was to lay before him some facts in
connection with what was called the
"sweating svstem. ' One of the delega
tion said he had seen instances in which
garments were lying on a bed in which
fever patients were suffering. There
were a great many instances in which
things had taken place. They considered
that if an employer got people to take
work home, he should be bound to get
the place to which it was taken registered
and noped Mr. Cross could see his way
clear to make it imperative that every
house used as a tailor's workshop should
be so arranged by the employer. A del
egate from Manchester gave the results
of visits to one thousand homes where
this work was carried on, and stated that
the condition of things was something
deplorable. In some cases four or five
persons were at work in a room nine feet
by twelve feet. Sometimes people were
making these garments in- the midst of
their domestic arrangements. From the
facts that had come under his knowledge,
he had no hesitation in saying that the
state of things required alteration, and
the people engaged were in a most un
healthy condition, lhey tound some
where near one hundred and thirty
thousand people engaged in this wav
and all the surroundings of the place
were such as would foster and spread
disease. Another delegate said in some
instances in London a man and woman
would be at work in a small room, at the
top of the house, in which they lived
and slept. The people occupied in this
work were so crowded together that the
place could not fail to foster and spread
disease. While people went to large
shops with showy fronts they did not
know that the clothes they purchased
were made in close and unhealthy rooms.
He knew a case in which, whiie the
body of a child who had died from small
pox lav dead on the table, and two other
ctildren were sick with the disease, the
man and wife were at woik in the same
room, and twelve fashionable coats were
in the room, which would be sent all
over the town. Mr. Cross said he would
introduce a bill after Easter to cover the
In his address as president of the Liv
erpool Geological society, Mr. Me Hard
Keade onered some data tor calculating
the length of geological periods. He
made a careful estimate of the amount of
solid matter washed down by the
Thames per year ; the figures very closely
; -. l . i i i t i i i
agreeing wiin mose wnicn i restwicn od
tained. Similar calculations were made
by Mr. Reade for other rivers. The
Thames is credited with washing away
one hundred and forty-seven tons per
square mile every year, the Rhine, V2.6
tons; the Rhone two hundred and
thirty-two tons; the Danube, 72.7 tons;
the Garonne, one hundred forty-two
tons ; the oeme, ninety-seven tons.
Probably one hundred tons of rock ma
tenal are dissolved per square , mile
every year, of which half may be cal
cium carbonate, a fifth calcium sulphate,
seven tons silica, of magnesia carbonate
and sulphate and sodium chloride four
tons each, and six tons of other alkaline
carbonates and sulphates. Taking the
solids removed mechanically at six times
those in solution (a high estimate), the
total denudation on the globe would be
six hundred tons a year per square
mile. One-third may be added to this
for denudation effected by the sea on its
coasts and for the amount that volcanic
eruptions add to a given stratum
Carrying out this calculation for the
sedimentary crust of the earth,estimated
at ten miles in thickness, its production
may have occupied 526,470,000 years.
This evidently includes the assumption
that the denuding action was as slow in
distant geological epochs as at present.
It should not be difficult to calculate
from such data the number of millions
of years that .must elapse before our
present continents are worn down to
sea-level. Such a deduction would com
pel a very great modification of some of
the figures assumed by M. de Candolles
in his recent estimates as to the length
of time that the earth will be fitted for
the abode of man.
Paris fashion writers agree in assert
ing that a radical change in ladies' dress
is already inaugurated. Waists are
made shorter, and the skirts fall in
graceful folds. Our dressmakers declare
that thev cannot make these dresses hang
well and produce the desired effect
withont stiff underskirts of some kind.
and to meet these wants some of our en
terprising manufacturers have intro
duced new, light and elegant crinoline
skirts and bustles. These differ greatly
from the large, clumsy hoopskirts form

This singular man lived in Greece. He '
was distinguished for his eccentricities, bad
manners, and bad disposition. It was his
chief business to find fault, i'or example,
he took a lantern one day when the sun was
shining brightly and went out to search for
an honest man, thereby insinuating that
such persons were exceedingly scarce. When
Alexander, a distinguished military gentle
man, paid him a visit, and inquired what he
could do for him, he had the impudence to
tell him to get out of his sunshine." To
cap the climax of his oddities, he dressed
like a beggar and lived in a tub 1 He was a
sour, crabbed, crusty old bachelor. We infer
that he had no wife, first, because history
does not mention her; second, because no
woman would take kindly to one of his hab
its, dress, or manners, or aspire to become
mistrees of his mansion. " There was an old
women who lived in a shoe," it is true, but
the woman who would live in a tub, and es
pecially with such a companion, has not
been heard from. The misanthropic spirit
which possessed this man was doubtless due
to disordered digestion and a biliousness,
one ot the prominent symptoms of which is a
morose, fault f ndiDg disposition. The tongue
is heavily coaled, giving rise to a bad taste,
the appetite is not good, and the patient
feels dull, sleepy or dizzy, and is apt to be
fretful. Unfortunately, Mr. Diogenes lived
several centuries before Dr. Pierce s Pleas
ant Purgative Pellets were invented, a few
doses of which would have relieved him of
his " bile," and enabled him to find scores
of " honest men " without the aid of his
lantern. Under their magic influence, com
bined with that of the Golden Medical Dis
covery, to dense his blood, he might have
been led to take a more cheerful view of
life, to exchange his tub for a decent habi
tation, to "spruce up" in personal appear
ance, and at last have taken a wife to
mend his clothes and hid manners, both of
which were in evident need of repairs, and
become the happy sire of little Diogeneses
who would have handed down to posterity
the name, not of a cvmc philosopher, but
of a cheerful, healthy, happy, virtuous man ! 1
