FARM AD FIRESIDE.
The lift Way to Dry rrolt.
As the season for drying lruit is now
at hand, we would call the attention of
the merchants throughout the state to
the importance of impressing upon their
customers the necessity of taking more
pains in drying than has heretofore been
customary in this section.
Nearly the entire crop of dried fruit is
shipped out of the state, and it should,
of course, be prepared with a view to the
wants of the market for which it is in
tended. For several years Germany has
taken the bulk of Tennessee applts at
low prices, mostly caused by the bad
manner in which they were handled
Last vear the trade with England in
creased largely, 10,000,000 pounds being
taken, airainxt a little over 501),
000 jKMinds tlie year previous. By put
tinfr'it in better shape, the demand can
be largely increased, and better price
obtained. Their trade requires them to
be well peeled, cored and cut smoothly
into quarters the larger the better.
Apples should never be dark, therefore
they should be gathered before they are
too ripe. There were iany orders sent
to Nashville last season which could not
be filled, on account of parties specially
stating that they wanted none but bright,
coarse quartered apples.
The merchant should sack separately
the different qualities as to color, and cut
Tteaches also are required ti be at bright
as possible; they" should be dried in
halves when it can be done, as they are
always worth from one to two cents more
than quarters, alone.
Blackberries should le perfectly ripe,
and care must be taken to dry ttiem
thoroughly. Keep them sunned for
some time alter drying, or they are apt
to mould. If all parties interested wouid
tear these facts in mind, the income of
Tennessee from thissource, already large,
could be increased to an almost incredi
ble amount. There is one other pint
that has been much neglected that is
proper sacking. Old sacks should never
be used. Four-busbel burlap bags are
the best for apples, and two bushel bur
lap or corn sacks for peaches. Pack
tightly, and sew neatly and straight with
My experience with clover is, the
longer I farm and the more I fee of it
the better I like it. It is very sure t
catch and root in a dry season, and hav
ing a pomewhat lager leaf, it shades
the ground in the dry part of the season.
In starts early in the spring, which for
pasturing is quite an object, and having
many leaves in draws a large proportion
of its support from the atmosphere,
and again, where clover is cut it starts
lrom the root again in a few days anil if
the il is in Rood condition, it will gen
erally produce another good crop. It
makes excellent fodder. Prof. Laws, of
England, says that manure made from
one ton of clover hay, is worth fourteen
dollars, estimating the value by the cost
of ingredients by the pound, to compose
the same in market. Professor Collier,
of Burlington, Vt., I think, estimates
the value more than fourteen dollars.
The plant is composed of a verv large per-
centageof nitrogen, a property that enters
largely into both the animal and vegeta
ble constitutiwns. N r is this all; the
root is a long tap root, running deep into
the ground or subroil even to the
depth of two or three feet, and often
deeper, drawing largely for its support.
After the root decays it leaves the'ground
very porous; and after growing on the
same ground for several years, the roots
decaying, leaving the ground compara
tively lull of nitrogenous matter, and in
the very best condition for the bearing of
a crop of wheat, which is most invariably
good after a crop of clover. IT. S". F. in

In many hilly portions of Europe goats
are kept to a considerable extent for

These sweet-scented animals have a de
cided advantage over the cow kind.
They are better foragers, and cost little
or nothing to keep. An ordinary garden
fence is nothing to an enterprising mem
ber of the Canra family, and they are not
at all particular in their choice of tender
plants. When young herbs or early let
tuce fail, there are many varieties of
flowers and garden plants that serve for a
meal; and when shut off from this deli
cate diet, a clean-washed Sunday shirt
can be disposed of with coiif-iderable
relish. And then their literary appetites
are amazing. They will discuss the merits
of the largest morning newspaper in two
minutes, by Shrewsbury clock, and di
gest it too, for that matter. They are also
remarkably playful, and take especial
delight in outline the children for
pastime. But their crowning glory is the
delicious odor they exhale. Lubin's
choicest extracts are nothing to it, for
when a goat is within forty yards of the
house one faccies himself wandering in
the groves of Arab-. By all means, cul
tivate the goat.

The following is from a Turkish major
general: "The battle waa very fierce
and liiijted for three hours, and glory to

admiral, in announcing the loss of an
iron-clad, says: "The steam launches
approached to within a short distance, and
may f Jod preserve the remaining ships of
par fleet. At this time the imperial
jrop-clad called the Sword of the Lord
received ablow from a torpedo of the fish
kind, which preceded from the steam
launch, and it exercised such an influence
on her stern that sh sank, and, thanks
to the Most Ilitrh, all the officers and
crew escaped. This Fad occurence was
doubtless a necessity to the great God,
and, as is well known, lie always gives
victory after such defeat." A fight in
the Caucasus is thus reported : " We had
ten martyrs and twe've wounded, which
we cannot but ascribe to the spiritual aid
of the prophet and to the favor shown by
the Almighty God to our glorious ruI
lan, the refuge of a univer.-e." Toronto
The Future of Gold.
The gld advocates have received a
hard blow at the hands of one of the most
eminent geologists of Eurojie, Herr
Sues?, professor f geology at the uni
verMty f Vienna, who has recently pub
lished a work upon "The Future of
Gold ' Die Zukuvft de Gohles. A rec
ognized European authority in his special
sphere, he not only has aimed in this able
and invaluable dok to garner and ar
range the historical ficts and the statis
tics of the production of gold, but also
to supply the previously lacking infor
mation about money which is not
small, even among tho?e who most affect
special knowledge on the subject and at
the same time to apply clearly lormula
ted laws to the economic phenomena
From the standpoint of the geologist,
Piof. Suess pronounces as a demonstra
ted tact that, taking all the gold ever ex
cavated from the remote Egyptian era of
Kameses II. down to the latest discov
eries, there has not been enough of it
unearthed to justify the general estab
lishment of the single-money standard of
gold contended fir by a certain school of
writer in Europe, and so little reason
does b find f r that demand that he op
poses to it the strong; probabil ty tbht
mankind within several centuries will
have exhausted all the earth's gold re
The present stock of gold, increased by
all which may be hereafter extracted,
estimated at any maximum that can.be
intelligently assumed, Herr Suess main
tains, must be, relatively, so small that
we cannot rationally escape from the
c inclusion that, in the course of a few
hundred years, there will n(t be nearly
enough gold at the disposition of man
kind for money uses: From this con
clusion there is no escape, he affirms,
when one, calmly surveyintr the earth,
notes the small extent of it which geo
logically affords the least hope of furnish
ing future gold fields at all adequate to
supply the increasing demand tor this
precious metal. And it is upon this
point the work of this German scientist
is f-ingularly valuable.
He says that the precio'is metals have
three separate sources which mark the
geological transformation of their com
ponent matter in the outer strata of the
earth. In the first class, gold and silver
are found minutely disseminated in the
rocks. Thus, gold is found blended with
platinum and other metals, as at Nijni
Tapil, in the Oural mountains; but so
fw are the localities, and so small the
product, that this source is not to be
taken into account in estimating the
world's rcMmrces for maintaining
a metallic money system. A second
source he places in the seams er fissures
which baTC resulted lrom volcanic
forces, and to which belong the famous
bonanza mines of Nevada, the lodes or
veins of New Granada and ot the Carpa
thian mountains, also of Victoria and
Queensland, and some of the "cangues
ot New Zealand. I he third or
Fource are the placer and fluvial
fields cf California, Australia, New Zeal
and, and the Onral and Riverine dis
tricts of northern Asia, the gold depos
its of which have had tlicir onerin in the
chemical operation wrought bv the air,
together with the mechanical displace
ment and removal atlectcd by water.
These ever active, powcr.'ui transforming
agents discomposed the ,Mer strata, and
transported them to the bods in which
they are now found, and which are worked
by hydraulic processes.
Jlerr tuess places the aggregate pro
duction of gold from 1843 to the close of
1K7( at about f3 ''50,000,000, ot which
all but $301,000,000 was drawn exclu
sively from the last mentioned class of
sources, which consequently must be re
garded as the only substantial field of
gold-supply in the future. In this rela
tion, the geological lesson, according to
this eminent savant, is, that the production
ot gold must ' depend essentially upon
those parts of the earth where, for a cer
tain time, the primitive rocks were ex
jMsed to decom jxisition, and consequently
as thoe sections are relatively very in
considerable, and so much of them have
already been exhausted of their gold
that we mut reach the conclusion that
at this very time, "more than half of all
the gold which can ever bo extracted
possibly, from the earth by human labor
ingenuity, and perseverance has already
come into the hands ol man, 'and further
that the period of ultimate exhaustion
must come with the greater rapidity
b-.'cause of the intensely greater scale
with which mining is now carried on by
aid of modern improved machinery and
processes lor extracting and deducing
ores to bullion, together with the great
depths that are now reached and ex
plored. Therefore, the period at which
there must come a permanent, substantial
diminution of the annual discovery of
gold, with a constant reduction of the
amount of that metal Io't uncon.-umedin
the arts, and in handling, must be regar
ded us approaching so cio.so as the near
future. Of course, as gold becomes
scarce and dear, it will be moreand more
dilucult to transact the increasing busi
ikms ot the world with it, and romc sub
stitute will have to be found. On the
other hand, though silver, as Prof. Suess
maintains, is mainly extracted from
eruptive veim and fis-ures, those sources
are so numerous and widely spread over
the earth, and relatively so large and
rich that the supply mav he confidently
regarded as more unfailing than the
sources of gold; ami as likely to extend
to a far remoter future. At the same
time, a great proeress is to be anticipated
in the niethods of extraction from all the
ores of cilver.
Therefore, dispassionately regarded
fiom the purely scientific point of view
Herr Suess d cs not hesitafe to pro
nounce not only against the feasibility of
establishing a single gold standard for
Eurote and America, but he goes fur
ther, and ns-umes that, at no remote
time, it will become prudent to re-

A FOREST MRE.
ThrllllnB Draa-rlptlon Of a Con flarra lion
la m -Tllrtilf nn I'orral Hidden In m Care
Ansld aa Ocnw of Boariaf Flame.
Your correspondent waa in Osceola
county when the fires first began. In the
midst of a wilderness of pine and thicket,
miles away from village or hamlet, waa
a pioneer's cabin. The clearing around
it comprised about ten acres. Some of
the ground waa ready for corn, and some
of it had been sewed and planted '.-virile
the forest around waa so damp and green
that one would have smiled at the idea
of great sheets of flame climbing those
tall trees and waving fifty feet above
them. One night some hunters built a
grand fire against a heap of dry logs.
The next day they were miles away, and
the fire had begun to creep. Little
tongues of flame reached out after dry
sticks and limbs, larger tongues followed
them and before night the tire had con
trol of an acre of forest. That was start
enough. At midnight the wind came
up fresh, and the heat ot the fire drove
through the forest scorching and baking
a trail for the red flames.
We otuiM scent the odor of burning
trees sn l leaves, and there was a smoky
look to the forest. At noon the odor
was s'rongf r, the smoke denser, and the
live stock around the clearing began to
exhibit signs of alaim.. When the oxen
were unyoked to be fed they turned their
beads to the west, scented the air tor a
moment, and then charg-d across the
clearing at full speed, being out of sight
in two minutes.
" That means danger," said the pioneer
in a low voice, and he turned pale. He
believed the fire to be in a large swamp,
ten miles away, but hardly thoueht it
possible for the gren forest to ignite.
We sat down to dinner meaning to4iunt
for the oxen afterward ; but before the
meal was over thero vas fresh causes for
alarm. A buck and two does dashed
into the clearing closely fnllowed by a fox,
a score of rabbits and a dozen coons and
woodchucks. The deer ran to the far
edge of the clearing r.s we went out, but
the other animals scarcely noticed us.
"You go forward as far as ynu can, and
see what the danger is, and wife and I
will get ready to run !" said the pioneer.
At that moment a fresh alarm and a
new warning reached us. There came a
roar such as the sea gives out when rush
ing in upon a broken beach. We had not
heard it before. It wasa steady, terrible
roar, rising above all other sounds. A
cwming whirlwind might have caused the
same sound. The rush of a vast herd of
buffaloes might have created such a roar.
It was awful! The ground trembled,
the smoke became blacker, and the heat
was like the rush of air from a hot oven.
" It isn't a mile away we must run for
our lives!" shouted the settler.
He had three children. I picked up a
loy of seven. The pioneer seized .his
litile girl, two years youncer, and his
wife t:x'k the sleeping babe from the cra
dle. There wan no time to take down a
spare garment from the wall to pick up
a cherished gift or a treasured relic.
"Tli is way hurry!" I heard the pio
neer call out; and, gasping for breath
and blinded by the smoke, I rushed on
The roar was louder and grander and
more terrible. Falling upon us and
around us were little brands f fire, and
to the west, half a mile away, was a wall
of flame a" hundred feet high a wall
which wai coming down upon the clear
ing at t!:e rate of six miles an hour. The
wall of fire was twelve miles long, and
the waters of Lake Erie would have
scarcely drenched it out.
A deer ran against me as I staggered
after the pioneer. More than once I
stumbled against the small wild animals
rushing here aud there through the clear
ing. My hair and whiskers were scorch
ing, and my clothes were on fire in a
dozen places when we reached the out
door cellar, a place dug in the hillside
about four hundred feet from the house.
It was part cave, part structure. But
well covered with erath, and almost free
fro m smoke. The two children had pass
ed through all right but the babe was so
nearly suffocated that wc had hard work
to save its life.
Just before the flames reached 'the
clearing the ground trembled as it did
around Gettysburg, when five huudred
pieces o( artillery thundered away for
hours. The smoke drove phead, leaving
me a pretty fair view of the cabin and
clearing for five or six minutes. Birds
dropped down and died. The deer
rushed around in circles, sometimes run
ning full against ftump. The smaller
animals roared, barked and fought each
other, and several rabbits found retreat
and rushed in among us.
When the flames reached the edgs of
the clearing, five hundred feet tiom
our cave, the ground in front of us airly
baked. The wild animals fell down and
died, steam rose from the green stumps iu
clouds for a moment, and then fire broke
out. Wc wondered whether the flames
would leap the clearing, but that ques
tion was speedilv decided. The wall of
fire roared and quivered, rose and fell, an
the next moment was driving ahead on
the othei side. The flames seemed to
have reached right overthe ten acres an
grasped the forest bevond.
Our cave was like an oven. The earth
on the roof was soon baked as dry as
powder. The green logs brgan to stew
and burn, and in ten minutes we were
almost as wet as il we had fallen into
river, and we were pressed for breath
Buried in the side ot that hill, we were
in the centre of an ocean of flame, of
acres of the hottest kind of fire. Fo
miles to the west the fire was eating
away at trees and logs, and into the very
greund. Ihe wall ot tire, which had
reached its red arms over the clearing.
was now miles to the east. North si
miles, south six mi es ; and the pioneer
and his wife knelt beside the gasping,
choking babe, and wept and prayed
That was an awful night, and almost
every minute we could hear the dull
thud of the mighty trees as they yielded
to the fire and tell among the srreat heaps
ol coals. From ten o'clock till midnight
we existed only by lying flat on the
ground to secure breath. The babe
seemed constantlv at the point of death
but the other chMdren suffered less than
the crown teople. Next morning th
worst had passed. Before ns was
cleared space, with every stump burning,
and the ground covered with ashes, coals,
and burning branches. Beyond the
clearinir the forest was a strange, lone
some sisrht. Some trees had burned
some were burning and others had been
robbed of leaves and smaller limbs.leaving
the blackened trunk a landmark to app
the hearts of future f-ettlers. We could
not leave the cave that day or that night
and the next morning everybody was
nearly dead from thirst and exhausted
with hunirer. The pioneer and mvself
carried wife and little ones nearly half a
mile ever the baked and smoking cround
to a creek, and were fortunate enough to
find the half-roasted body of a deer in
the blood-warm water. The animal had
lain down in the water to avoid the heat
and had been literally roasted alive, as
the water was not over six inches deep,
and ih heavy fringe of bushes on either
side of the creek had blazed treely.
It was a walk of eleven miles toa ham
let a place which had escaped only by a
change of wind and the continued efforts
ot desperate men and women, thousands
of acres of valuable timber had been
ruined. A green wilderness, through
which the deer bounded and the fox and
rabbit softly made their way, had given
place to such a picture of desolation as
the human eye seldom rests upon. Doz

Surrender f (ien. Leo.
Much mention has recently been made
of General Lee's sword at Appomattox
whether he tendered it to Orant or not.
We only know that General Iee wasn't
so rapid about surrendering. For nearly
two houison that memorable day othcers
and men were .uncertain what was to be
done. A certain officer of high rank
Wing asked his opinion, replied that
(Jen. lee was tlenin consultation with
Grant, and that we might be ordered to
surrender or cut omr way out he could
not tell. As to the side arms of the of
ficers, whether a comp'iment paid them
hf Grant, or whether required by Gen.
Lee in the ?urr,-nder, wa know that in
coming from that consultation Genera!
Lee made a short a4dresd to a large
number of officers and men, and the first
thing he told them after wishing them a
safe return to their homes, and that their
behavior as citizens might comport with
their conduct as soldiers, he told them,
as if it was something, at least, that the
officers would be allowed to retain their
sida arms. It was then that a ragged
old private rushed up to him, the tears
flowing down his face, and exclaimed :
" Good-by, General ! God bless you 1"
General Lee shook his hand. It was
then that a large body of men dropped
on the ground, and that's all. Officers

A Mechanical Horse.
An Ingenious gentleman of Berlin.Herr
Frederich Netzsch, has invented a horse;
The animal is made of iron, and the mo
tive power, instead of being its own legs,
is derived from the legs of the rider. The
iron horse, as the Berlin papers called
him, showed off his paces the other day in
the garden f Hagen's summer Theatre,
in the presence ot the leading mechan
icians and journalists of the German cap
ital. The concern is described as consist
ing of a couple of wheels, two metres
high; between these " finds itself " the
horse upon which mounts the rider. The
latter moves his legs " after the English
fashion of riding "" (this means, we pre
sume, that be rises and falls in bis sad
dle), and the thing goes along as fast as a
quick trotting horse. Theroad makes no
difference it is all the same whether the
machine goes gently over the stones or
moves swiftly on the hard high road,
and the facility with which the Btrange
steed turned round corners excited the
admiration of all beholders. Herr
Netzsch believes that this invention will
be of great use to porters and others for
the carrying of light loads, and he has
confident hopes that it will be highly ap
preciated by the numerous classes who
are fond of saddle exercise but destitute
of the wherewithal to buy and maintain
horses of flesh and blood ; he contem
plates, too, its application to the drawing
of cabs and other carnages. It is even
conceivable that in this invention we have
the charger of the future. An animal
that does not eat and cannot die wouid be
of inestimable value in warfare. There
are one or twosignincant omissions in the
description from which we quote. We
are not told how a man of flesh and blood
is expected to support the fatigue of mo
ving, by rising in bis stirrups, a creature
of iron, or if it be possible to keep it
going in any placo less flat than Berlin, a
city which, as everybody knows, is as
level as a billiard-board. Geneva Conti

The St. Louis Republican thus calls

ot lightning-rod men. it would be well
if all persons approached by traveling
agents were to take the advice contained
in the last part of this article: " There
is the lightning-rod trick practiced on
unsuspecting farmers in this state that
unsuspectine farmers, and others who
have not heard of it, would do well to
be on their guard against. The lightning-rod

and wait on him for the money. When
this attractive proposition is accepted,
the victim is made to sign a note or con
tract which he supposes is an obligation
to pay $5 in three or six months, but
which turns ont to be a note for $70.
The rod is put up and the agents drive
of, but in a few days afterward another
man comes along with the farmer's note
for $70, duly signed, and demands pay
ment. Of coarse the victim is surprised
and bewildered, and indignantly denies
that he ever signed such a note ; but
there is the inexorable handwriting,
which binds him for the sum claimed.
Our friends in the country would do well
to refuse to sign all contracts offered

give unquestionable references ; there is
usually a catch in them wich is not dis
covered till the wrong is beyond remedy.

of Biutchnk-Deatb 1b the Streets

Flight of the Terrlned
Suddenly from one of the Russian

of a globe of grayish white smoke,"and a
shell sped screaming over Eustchuk to
explode on the slope ef the hill crowned
by Fort Hanamdil. It was the signal
for the bombardment. Immediately
after. It seemed as if every Russian gun
was fired simultaneously, for the earth
fairly trembled with the roar of the
artillery and the shells flew over the
doomed city with an awlul and inde
Although the Roumanian shore above,
below, and in front of Giurgevo was
entirely obscured by the smoke from the
Russian guns, th Turkish batteries
promptly opened an answering fire, and
soon nothing could be seen on the river
banks but dense rolling volumes of
smoke, through which, almost every two,
seconds, flashes would dart like lightning
through storm clouds. Boom, boom, went
the Tuikish guns, with an uninterrupted
regularity, although the Russian shells
were falling in and around the works
with a fatal precision.
This extraordinary artillery duel was
maintained at a range of net more than
3,000 yards. The guns on both sides
being heavy pieces, the fire was direct
and the trajectory of the missiles very
flat. Consequently every object hit in
Rustchuk was lent and torn by pene
tration or demolished by the explosion
that fjllowed. The effects ot the Turk
ish fire could only be observed at Inter

little; but it is evident that considerable
damage was inflicted on the Russian
The terribly effective character of the
Russian fire can scarcely be described.

of the houses and burying themselves
in the floors, where they exploded, de

Not even the hospitals were spared by
this awful rain of shells. Several of
these buildings happened to be quite ex
posed, and, although surmounted by flags
indicating ineir cuaracter, mey were in
volved in the storm and their inmates in
many Cases wdfe killed In their beds.
This has caused the utmost indignation
among the Turks, and the authorities
have requested the foreign consuls to
testify to the occurrence, so that the port
may make a formal protest against what
it deems to be uncivilized warfare.
Although the flags of England and
other European pawers were displayed
over their respective consulates, the Rus
sian fire did not spare these buildings,
The guns were aimed at Rustchuk and
everything animate and inanimate within
its limits. Shells have no neutrality and
do not discriminate between consulates,
mosques and hospitals.
The unfortunate inhabitants of Rust
chuk suffered terribly during the bom
bardment. Hid away in deep recesses,
or sheltered behind thick walls, the Rus
sian sheila found and destroyed them. As
they darted through the streets toward
places of greater secUrity their bodies
were scattered in fragments by the ex
plosion of thesi terrible missiles. Wo
men flying from their burning or ruined
homes were killed as they ran. Little
children, clapped in the arms of their ter
rified parents, were struck dead by the
fatal fragments. The scene was one of
unqualified horror throughout.

Mountains In the Moon.
It is an ascertained fact that there are
three classes of lunar mountains. The
first ot these consists of isolated, separate,
distinct mountains of a very curious
character. The distinguishing character
istics of these mountains is this: They
start up from a plain quite suddenly.
On earth it is well known that moun
tains generally go in ranges or groups
but we fand these isolated lunar moun
tains standing up entirely apart, never

consists of mountain ranges. Now, thi

also found in the moon, but there is the
exception ; only two principal ranges are
found, and these appear to have been
originally one range. One is called the
Appenines. It is so well- seen that, just
as the line ot light is passing through th
moon, you will think it is, generally
speaking, a crack in its surface ; but
telescope of ordinary power will at once
manifest it to be a range of mountains.
The lunar Appenines may be compared
with the loftiest range of mountains upon
earth. It is I8,luu feet high, and there
is another still higher, rising 25,000 leet
above its base. In this feature, then, the
moon corresponds with the earth, but

an affair that occurred at Sharon, Pa.,
on the 5th is one of the best illustrations.
A young lady, Miss Kate McOilvery, was
out driving alone, and when on State
street she desired to eet ahead of a wacon.
She called out to the driver to turn aside
so that she could pass. He was a deaf,
infirm old man named Bell, and at first
did not hear what she said, but after a
second or third call did as requested.
Misunderstanding Mr. Bell's delay, the
young lady on her arrival at home told
her father that the old man had tried to
frighten her horse. Mr. McGilvery is
very impetuous, and this made him so
angry that he started down town to find
Mr. Bell. He met him in front of a
store, and, without warning, knocked
him through the window, cutting his
head badly though not seriously. Mr.
Bell was removed to his residence, and
his son Richard was so maddened by his

skull. The wounded man died in a few
hours. Miss Kate, the innocent cause of
all the trouble, has lost her reason, and
is now a raving maniac, though her phy

The Indian office has been informed
that Major Walsh, of the Canada mounted

waters of Frenchman's creek. Sitting
Bull said he desired to remain with the
Canadians during the summer ; that he
would do nothing against the law ; that
he came there because he was tired of
fighting, and if he could not make a liv

United States. Spotted Eagle, Rain-in

of other chiefs of the hostile Sioux were
present, together with about 200 lodges.
The Indians wefe told they would be ai
lowed ammunition only for hunting pur
poses, and should any of their people
cross to the American side and commit
anv depredation, the chiefs would be held
responsible and punished. The Canadian
Indians are opposed to having these hos

line, as they are at war with them. In

a good supply of arms and horses and

which is not given except for quantity
sufficient to supply the immediate needs

A Woman's Courage.
A thrilling incident occurred on the
stage route .between Ellenville, Ulster
county, and Summitville, on the New
York and Oswego Middle railway, on
Friday afternoon last, when the courage
and extraordinary nerve of fl woman
saved the lives Of herself and her two
children. Just this side Of FOllenville
there is a long and steep declivity in this
road, known as Budd's Hill. The Sum
mitville stage began the descent of the
hill, when the pole of the stage coach
slipped through the neck-yoke and let
the vehicle, with considerable force,
against tha horses. They began plung
ing and running; and the driver, a rtrong
fellow named Lord, instead of putting
on the breaks, and stopping the hores,
as he might have done, became fright
ened, threw down the reins and jumped
from his seat to the ground, and was
thrown violently several leet down on
embankment. Another man who sat
on the seat with him jumped also, and
was thrown down the bank. The other
passengers in the stage were Mrs.
Hollingsworth and her two small chil
dren. As soon as the horses were free
from the restraint of a driver, they
dashed furiously down the hill, threaten
ing momentary death to the inmates of
the coach. Mrs. Hollingsworth saw that
they must meet certain destruction at a
sharp curve there was in the hill some
distance aheadj unless the horses could
be checked in some way. Her children
were clinging to her and screaming in
terror, but she ha3tily tore herself away
from them and clambered over the three
seats that were between her and the
driver's. On reaching that seat she saw
with hrror that the reins were trailing
and out of her reach. Her extraordinary
presence ot mind and courage never for
sook her, however, for she climbed over
the dash-board to the whiffle-trees, and
thence walked along the pole of the
stage, between the plunging horsss, un
til she could reach the reins as they lay
on their backs. Securing them, she
made her way to the driver's seat and
put forth all her strength in attempting
to get some control over the team. She
succeeded far enough to prevent the
capsizing ot the coach at the curve.
She pulled the horses close to the
road, and, as Mr. Tallman, an eye
witness to the scene says, the coach went
around the curve with two wheels off
the ground, and ran in that position for
some distance, but it righted at last, and
the great danger was averted. A hun
dred yards or so beyond the curve the
high bank at the lawn side eased off in a
gentle slope. Here Mrs. Hollingsworth
succeeded in turning the horses, and ran
them into a fence. They could not get
another start, and several men who saw
the runaway were soon on the spot and
secured them. They found Mrs. Hol
lingsworth with the reins still wrapped
about her hands, but she waa as pale
as death, and unconscious. She had
pulled so hard in the struggle that the
reins had cut great gashes in her hands,
and were almost buried in the flesh.
The blood flowed from the cuts in
streams. The children were clasped in
each other's arm in one corner of the
stage, and so terrified that they were un
able to speak for some time. They and
their courageous mother were, taken to a
house near by, where they all soon re
covered. Mrs. Hollingsworth suffered
no more serious consequences from her
terrible adventure than the injury to
her hands. She was able to proceed on
her journey in a short time. The driver
and his companion in cowardice were
both badly hurt. They were received
with shouts of derision and great indig
nation when they were found, however,
and received sympathy in no quarter.
Lord is an experienced driver, and his
cowardly action on this occasion is inex
plicable. Middletmen Cor. N. Y. Time.

Howard's Visit to Rutins' Dull and What
the Indians Told Ulna.
Howard talked with the camp follow
ers regarding the Custer massacre and
disclosed some new facts. This body of
Jiostiles, or a portion of it, was with Sit
ting Bull in that bloody affair, and thus
the story that Howard relates may be
depended upon as they, not suspecting
his mission among them, and in consid
eration of his residence among and
relationship with him, talked to him as
one of themselves, lhey state tnat
many of Custer's men were killed by
mounted Indians, who ran over them
and killed them with their knives. The
poor fellows were huddled together here
and there and fought at great disadvan
tage ; yet . they killed a great many or
their assailants, fighting desperately to
the last. Sitting Bull asserted that the
battle lasted but thirty minutes all told,
ending with the death of Custer and a
few men and officers who bad rallied
around him. This forlorn hope had gotten
off some distance, and could have escaped;
but, unfortunately, Custer changed his
mind, turned, and ordered a charge,
and the devoted party rushed upon
the Indians with revolvers, shooting
down the astonished savages right and
left. Custer killed five himself, when
his pistol emptied, and the foe pressed
about him, he closed with a grappling
savage, and beating out his brains with
the butt, was shot as his victim fell to
the ground. The doubtless true story
supports the theory advanced by mili
tary men at the time of the massacre
the idea of some desperate final act
receiving support from the position and
location of the group of bodies about
Custer, viz.: that he, seeing his command
annihilated, and fearing to face the con
sequences or scorning to lite when his
soldiers lay dead about him, had deliber
ately rushed to certain death.
His body was not recognized at
first, the Indians thinking him a
scout; but being seon identified, all
that remained of the famous general
was propped up against the corpses of
two soldiers, and oo lelt to receive the
advanc'ng but too late tfoopm Poor
Tom Custer's heart was not cut out, fls

and knifed, his body stripped and thrown
into the river. It must be Sturgess'
death which is thus descfibed, as the
Indiana tell of this poor fellow as a ?ouflg
warrior who rode with a buckskin coat
strapped to his saddle, and it is known he
was so equipped. They also relate that
two soldiers, who threw down their guns
and surrendered, were set free and ad
vised " to fetufn to their people and tell
them that all the whites would follow
Custer unless they would let the Hioux
alone." The poor fellows left,-but the

Betting on the Weather.
The "gentle;Hindoo"and "mild Moham
medan" have, it seems, invented be
tween them a perfect novel sort of
gambling. In one quarter of the inter
esting city of Ajmer there is a house oc
cupied bv some soothsayers who are cred
ited by the public with the faculty of
foreseeirig changes of weather. They are
represented to be remarkably accurate in
their predictions, owing to long practice
in their profession. Outside the resi
dence of these worthy seers a crowd of
natives assemble every day for the pur
pose of betting on the chances of a down-
poor. After the "straight tip has oeen
purchased from one of the prophets, the
buyer commences bellowing after the
manner of "list men" on English race
courses, that he will take or lay certain
odds about the fall of rain in a given
time. The ordinary quotations are
sixteen to oneagainst heavy rain coming
down within twenty-four hours, eight to
one against a light shower happening,
and longer odds in both cases as the time
is reduced. When the weather happens
to be exceptionally variable, the whole
street becomes blocked by an excited
throng of gamblers, and the prophets do
a smart business in "straight tips." It
appears that the seers themselves very
otten join in the amusement and back
their respective opinions with the great
est pluck. As the hour approaches for
the bets to be decided, the more nervous
gamblers are heard offering their chances
of winning at a heavy discount. This
allows the weather prophets an opportu
nity of "hedging" at considerable advan
tage, and it frequently happens the book
of an old seer will show a certainty of
gain whether rain fall or not. Could
not this method of gambling be acclima
tized in England? The dullnessof which
Cabel-court complains might possibly be
exchanged for renewed activity if the
confiding British public wern tempted
with some fresher lures than the old
"building" and "bearing" operat'ons.
Then, too, our variable climate would be
the very thing for the purpose, while the
meteorological department might per
haps be induced to furnish "straight
tips" until the sporting prophets took to
forecasting the weather as a regular
branch of their profession. Aimer de'

Advantages of Crying1.
A French physician is out in a long
dissertation on the advantages ot groan
inir and crvinc in eeneral. and especiallv

that groaning and crying are two grand
operations by which nature allays an
guish ; that thoBe patients who give way
to their natural feelings more speedily
recover from accidents and operations
than those who suppose it unworthy
man to betray such symptoms of coward
ice as either to groan or cry.
He tells of a man wno rsaucea nis
pulse from one hundred and twenty-six
to sixty in the course of a few hours by
giving full vent to his emotions. If
people are at all unhappy about anything
let them fro to their rooms and comfort
themselves with a loud boo-hoo, and they
will feel one hundred per cent, better
In accordance with the above, the
crying of children should not be too
discouraged. If it is systematically
repressed the result may be bt. v ltus'
dance, epileptic fits, or some other disease
of the nervous system. What is natural
is nearly always useful, and nothing can
be more natural than the crying of
children when: anything occurs to give
them either physical or mental pain.
Alternation and Remission of Mental
In the accustomed routineof education
a number of separate studies and acquire
ments are prcecuted together, so that
for each day a pupil may have to engage
in as many as three, four or more differ
ent kiudH of lessons.
The principles that guide the alterna
tion and remission of our modes of exer
cise and application are apparently these :
1. Kleep is the only entire ana arwolute
cessation of the mental and bedi'y ex
penditure; and perfect ordreamlews Rleep
is the greatest cessation of all. What
ever shortens the due allowance of sleep,
renders it fitful and disturbed or pro
motes dreaming, is so much force wasted.
In the waking Hours there may be ces
sation from a g,iren exercise, with more
or less of inaction over the whole system.
The greatest diversion of the working
forces is made by our meals ; during
these the traihs of thought are changed,
while the body is rested.
Bodily or muscular exercise, when al
ternated with sedentary mental labor, is
really a mode of remission accompanied
with an expenditure requisite to redress
the balance of the physical functions.
The blood has unduly flowed to the
brain; muscular exercise draws it off.
The oxidation of the tissues has been re
tarded; muscular exercise is the moat
direct mode of increasing it. But definite
observation teaches us that these two
beneficial effects are arrested at the fa
timie point : so that the exercise at last
contributes not to the refreshment, but
to the further exhaustion of the system
