and was taking her leave just as Mr.
Ed.-all entered the drawing room of Mr.

was a beautiful girl of eighteen, who had
never intentionally wronged any one by
word or deed, but was too easily influ

Mins Ellon Jackson.
In a few davs the mischief feeean to
work. Kate lister came to unbosom her
troubles to Caroline, knowing that she
would find sympathy in her warm heart,

slie and Ella had jointly composed, and
still not the same; there was more ma

" And now, Caroline, can you imagine

" Dear Kate, you take it too seriously;
there was, I dare say, no mischief in

her heart sank within her as she remem

" But there must have been malice in

in very bitterness of heart, and Caroline

31 r. Edsall was one of the first that had
bce:i v.ientioned in the letter, and the
lashing f an embittered pen has been
keenly felt by him, for he was possessed
of fine and noble feelings, and the thought
that his poverty and awkwardnessshould
i e brought forward as an opprobrious
main s ung nun to the very soul, and
most severely aid no censure the writer
of such a malicious article. He had often

and delicacy of her manners, as well as
for her gec-uine and cultivated intellect ;
Mid lie ofi-en looked into her sweet face

character of the noblo, generous-he rted
man, and as she conversed with him, she
could but admire the lofty aspiration of
his gifLed intellect, and then sink in self
abasement at the remembrance of the
Time passed swiftly by, and the re
membrance of that ill-fated anonymous
epistle was vanishing from the public
mind. Edsall had, in his daily inter
course with Caroline, seen more and more
to admire ana love; the sweet commun
ings ot her gentle nature semed to
draw h r closer and closer to him, and
as they wandered forth on soft, balmy
twilight, he dreamed the tfcle f his love
into her willing ear and as he poured
out the aspirations of his heart upon the
altar of his love, Caroline could but
tremble, for was not she the one who had
first cast the shdaow of shame upon his
unspotted name. But the deep ardent
love which she so fervently reciprocated
shouldjshe check the ebbings of that
bright and sunny sneen, wnicn wouia
be the light of her existence? Ah, no; she
had not the courage to do so, and she
allowed him to still think her guileless
and free from deceit; and in the happi
ness of future anticipations almost forgot
the saddened past with its sombre shade.
Ellen Jackson had been for some
months absent and returned home about
three weeks after the engagement of her
friend Caroline to Mr. Edsall; her heart
had for a long time paid homage at the
shrine of his intellect, and she had seen
with sorrow that the fervent admiration
she felt was not reciprocated by him.
Stung with jealous disappointment, she
resolved that Caroline should not at least
bear off the inestimable prize, and in a
few evenings after her return she encoun
tered him at the mansion of Mr. Bowen,
intentionally upon her part. Envy,
chagrin and disappointment seemed to
rive enerrv to her determination, and
she purposely introduced the subject of
the almost forgotten anonymous letter,
as they were gathered around the centre
table. Caroline's cheek was blanched in
a moment, and with an appealing look
she glanced her eyes at Ellen, but the
beseeching look was unanswered. Mr.
Edsall spoke with more than his usual
energy and warmth, aud severely de
nounced the writer of such a calumnious
" I could never," said he, " respect or
love a person that could stoop to such an
act of duplicity or meanness; there was
no excuse; it was entirely unfounded."
Poor Caroline 1 The tear drops rushed
into her eyes; her punishment had but
just began. As the evening wore away,
and Miss Jackson rose to depart, Mr. Ed
sall offered to escort her home ; and, as
he parted from Caroline, he could not
fail to mark the air of dejection which
stole over her features. Anxiously in
quiring the cause, she tried to banish the
cloud, and, under the plea of slight in
disposition, concealed the truth ; a sad,
foreboding thought crossed her mind.
"No, it cannot be!" she exclaimed,
" Ellen will not bs so cruel or so base as
to betray me when she herself commenced
it, and led me on."
But Ellen did, and in a heartless man
ner, too ; not even mentioning the part
she had herself in it. Sad and sleepless
passed that night with poor Caroline ;
the morning sun found her languid, with
an aching head. She descended to the
breakfast room, where she soon received
a line from Mr. Edsall, couched in per
fectly polite but cold terms, requesting a
few moments interview, boon after she
heard his well-known ring at the door.
Desponding, she met him. Her heart told
her too true that he was changed. Lead
ing her to a seat, he instantly commenced
the painful topic.
" Ellen told me all, but I denied the
statement. She asserted it positively ;
but still, from no lips but your own will
I believe it. Is it so ? Were you indeed
the author of that cruel letter? Can I
have been deceived in you ? bo sadly,
" It is, indeed, so, Mr. Edsall ; but, if
tears cf deep penitence and sincere regret
avail aught, the sin has been atoned long
" But what motive, Miss Bowen, could
have influenced you to injure your
friends and acquaintances? You, so
kind, so gentle ! Had it been Ellen Jack
" Did she not tell you all how she
herself began it, and in sport led me on,
just for the fun of the minute. It was
wrong ; I never meant it to go further.
But she carried it away with her, and
had it copied and changed. But O, Mr.
Edsall, I have severely suffered for it ;
every allusion to it has been a sharp
wound to me."
" Had you tut told rae of it yourself,
Caroline, I could have forgiven it." -
" I tried to do so, but how could I
when you were wounded so deeply ?"
Long time did that high-minded man
struggle between love and duty. His
confidence in her had .been shaken, and
could he now take her to his heart ? Car
oline knew that her life's happiness was
at stake, and all for one hour's foolish
amusement. Life would be but a blank
without his love and guidance, and as
she watched the lights and shades pass
over his brow she felt that it love should
conquer she might still hope. Edsall
now took his leave, and as he parted he
clasped her hand in kindness, the warm
blood rushing to her cheeks.
" Pardon me for my plainness,Caroline,
but I must deliberate. This ha3 cost me
a long and bitter struggle, for vou know
not how deep a wound was made by that
base act. It now bleeds afresh. I will
either see you, or let you hear from me
She saw bim not again, but received a
letter rom him previous to his departure
to Cuba, whither business arrangements
called him. He freed her from her en
gagement, and gave her a final farewell.
His note was brief, but decided. Caro
line felt that he had been too severe, had
dealt too harshly with her, yet her lips
blamed him not ; but her cheeks paled
and the light of life had fled. Ellen saw
that her schemes had failed. The friend
ship which from childhood had existed
between her and Caroline had been sun
dered by this cruel breach of trust, and
she often repented tho wanton act ; but
no overtures could unite the broken
links which had bound their young lives
in harmony so many years.
Kate Lester was united in marriage
with Mr. Allen, and as Caroline stood b.
the side o! her friend as bridesmaid, she
rejoioed that she had wrought no perma
nent harm to her life's happiness by de
stroying the attachment which had ex
isted in their hearts. When Kate was
laying aside her bridal robes tor her
traveling suit, she confessed to her that
she had a share in the writing of the
letter, and earnestly craved her pardon
" Caroline, and this is what separated
you from Edsall. Had he known you as
well as I do, he would have known that
you did not do it intentionally. I al
ways thought that Ellen Jackson was at
the bottom of it. Yes, little one, I freely
lorgive you, and love you better than
ever. tJome and see us when we come
back ; remember, and God bless you !"
Months passed away, when one even
ing, Mr. Allen had called for Caroline
with a message from his wife to be sure
and come and spend the evening with
ner. A snort time Bad wrought a
change in the person of that fair girl
Her sweet face was pale ; the roses of
hope and jov had all fled ; the buoy
ancy and elasticity of youth had passed
away, and an air of settled melancholy
and sadness had taken the place of the
gayety of heart which had characterized
her. But she was still beautiful, and
her friends loved her better than ever,
for now she was all that was good and
true. An unusual depression was upon
her neart tnis evening, ior it was just a
year since she parted with Mr. Edsall,
ana many saa memories were fresh in
" Kate will not take no. Miss Bowen
she told me nothing would answer but
yourself, and cenie you must, so hasten
and get your hat and shawl." .
Upon entering Airs. Allen's parlor, she
saw seated a person whose form and noble
head resembled so forcibly the outlines of
Mr. Edsall that it sent the bright blood
to her cheeks, and her heart gave a
quicker throb as she pressed Mrs. Allen's
welcome hand. lie arose and extended
the greeting hand. VTrue, it was him:
and, as the truth came joyously across

strating in forcible language to his spirit

" You have never left it yet ; it is I
who ought to be restored to yours."
In a lew weeks she became his wedded
wife, but even now she looks back with
poignant regret t tthat hour of folly for .
which she so fervently repented. But she
is happy in the rich treasures of her noble
husband's affection, and he rejoices in the
gladsome spirit of his beautilul wife, and
as years rolled by their love only changed
to love the more.

spread for another soared her own feet ;

The Great Lick Telescope.
Richard S. Floyd, one of the trustees
of the Lick Trust, has just returned from
an extended European tour. During his
absence he has talked with many scien
tific men ot this and other countries, but
almost invariably found them afraid to
commit themselves to an opinion as to
whether a greater success can be obtained
with a reflecting or refracting telescope.
Prof. Newcombe, of the observatory in
Washington, alter his visit to Europe to
look into this matter for Mr. Lick, re
ported warmly in favor of a gigantic re
fractor, and forwarded complete esti
mates as to the cost. He has since changed
his opinion, however, and now recom
mends a silver on-glass reflector of about
seven feet diameter. Ross's, Herschel's,
and other cehbrated telescopes have
speculum-metal reflectors, which have
until lately been considered the best.
Now the palm is claimed for an inven
tion of Leon Foucault's, by which silver
in solution is deposited on glas-s. Fou
cault made a reflector upon this system
about thirty-one and one -fifth inches in
diameter, a?id excellent work has been
accomplished with it. After his death,
a reflector upon thia plan about four feet
in diameter waa constructed for the ob
servatory. Owiug to some not thor
oughly explained cause this has , not
proved a success, and another of the same
dimensions ia being constructed to re
place it. Great interest is manifested in
the result of this second experiment,
which cannot be proven for a year yet.
Dr. Huggins, the well-known astronomer,
also favors a large reflector, as it is better
far spectroscopic analysis, his favorite
study. It is natural that he should pre
fer a reflector, as he desires to have the
field of physical astronomy enlarged.
Theoretically a reflector of four feet in
diameter is about equal to a refractor of
twentv-six inches. The Ross reflector is
six feet in diameter, only four feet of
which are effective, and so far it has not
been proven that more than four feet of
a reflector can be made effective, lhe
great trouble with the reflector is that it
is very sensitive to atmospheric changes,
while with the refractor the difficulty
lies in the secondary spectrum. The ob-ject-glaaa
of the refractor is composed of
two glasses joined, the outer being of
crown glass, the inner of flint. Rays
passing through the crown glass are re
fracted, and entering the flint glass, are
refracted. The consequence is that per
fect achromatism is impossible, and 'the
difficulty of compensating these refrac
tions increases with the size of the object
glass. The largest refractor in the world
is that in the Washington observatory ;
it is twenty-six inches in diameter.
Mr. Floyd said that after as careful an
examination as he could make, he is in
clined to believe that the best interests
of the fund will be served, to have con
structed a larger re ractor than any yet
made, ihis ought not to cost, complete,
more than $150,000. Then there will be
a subsidiary reflector, about four feet in
diameter, supplied with both silver-on'
glass and speculum metal mirrors. Such
an in&trument has been offered, or rather
parties have agreed to construct one, for
about $20,000. Tell, of Paris, will under
take to make crown and flint glass discs

fractorfor $20,000 stipulating that he
shall be allowed two years for their con
struction. After they have left his
hands the optician will require about
three years more to figure these discs
Who was Casabianca I
Owen Casabianca was a native of
Corsica, on which island he was born in
the year 1788. His father was Louis
Casabianca, a distinguished French poll
tician and naval commander, and the
friend of Napoleon. He waa captain at
this time ot the Orient, one ot the largest
vessels in the French navy, a magnificent
ship-of-war, carrying 120 guns and 500
seamen. Of Casabianca's mother we
know little, save that she was a young
and beautiful Uorsican lady, and de
votediy attached to her son. uwen was
her only child, a handsome, manly little
fellow, with her beauty in his flashing
eyes and dusky hair. She died while he
was yet quite young, and when the green
sod was placed over her grave, the boy
left the pleasant valley under the smilinf
hills of Corsica to go with his father anc
tread the hard deck of a war vessel
Mere child as he was, Uasabianca soon
grew to love his father's dangerous call
ing, and became a favorite with all on
board. He was made midshipman, and
at the early age ot ten years participated
with his father in the battle of the Nile.
The ship caught fire during the action
Soon after, Captain Casabianca, the
father, was wounded by a musket ball.
Not yet disabled, he was struck in the
head 6ome minutes later by a splinter,
which laid him upon the deck insensible.
Ilia eallaut son, unconscious of the chief
tain's doom, still held his post at the
battery, where he worked like the hero
ho was. He saw the flames raging
around him; he saw the ship s crew de

urged to flee. With courage and cool
ness beyond his years, he refused to
desert his post. Worthy eon of Louis

like the judgment doom. With an ex
plosion so tremendous that every ship

Great interest attaches to a recent
opinion by Justice Miller in regard to the
invalidity of a conveyance of real estate
by a husband to his wife as against credi
tors. The name of the case was not
given, but the professional reader could
have no difficulty in understanding that
it arose under the bankrupt law, and
that the conveyance was made under
circumstances which entitled the assignee
to institute proceedings for the purpose
ot setting it aside, A wo cases ot this
character, not yet reported, were decided
by the supreme court at the last term,

In this case the husband, being actually

FARM AND HOUSEHOLD.
What Is lUft-h Farmlar.
An American farmer of note, after visit
ing England and examining with the criti
cal eye of a practical and experienced
agriculturist the system pursued there,
says: "I am thoroughly confirmed in my
old faith that the only good farmer ef
our future is to be the 'high farmer.'
There is a widely prevailing antipathy
among the common farmers ot our country
against not only the practice of high
farming, but against the use of the phrase
by agricultural writers. This is all wrong,
and should be at once corrected. Through
so-ae misconception of the meaning of
the phrase and of its application,
they have come to believe it synonymous
with theoretical 'book-farming,' new
fangled notions,' boasted progress, follow
ed by disappointments and final failure.
This is all an error. High farming Bimply
means thorough cultivation, liberal man a
ring, bountiful crops, good feed and pay
ing profits therefrom. It is not strange
that misconceptions have arisen in the
minds of doubting farmers who have
been eye-witnesses to some of the spread
eagle experiments of enthusiastic farmers,
better supplied with money obtained in a
business they knew how to manage than
with practical experience on the farm.
Bountiful crops and paying profits, of
course, are what farmers who are depend
ing upon the farm for an income are
striving to obtain; and every year as it
passes is reconfirming the opinion that
profits are small, and will grow beautifuly
less where high farming is not practiced
Mill; and Batter.
There is no other farmer's production so
subject to iniunes as milk and butter,
and none other so sensitive to unpleasant
odors of every kind; and none other that
is so much and readily deteriorated in
value as these are ; her.ee all kinds of un-
cleanliness should be avoided, and the ut
most neatness should be observed in every
step of their production and marketing,
from the very feeding, handling and
milking of the cows, aa well aa treatment
and handling of the milk, with the
churning, working and putting up of the
butter. " All of the vessels and
implements used, the water and salt used,
and the rooms occupied, in keeping the
milk and making the butter, should be
kept perfectly clean and sweet, in order
to produce the best quality, to secure
high and fancy prices. Nothing short
of this course will do it. Jo other arti
cle that the farmer produces for the mar
ket has such a wide range or difference in
prices as butter, not even cheese or choice
fruit. We see by quotations in all the
great butter markets that the prices of
eating butter ranges all the way from ten
cents to one dollar per pound, while
greasy, cooking butter is even lower than
that. Even the packages in which it is
put up, whether firkins, pails, tubs, or
rolls, affects the prices for which it sells.
Grains and meats have but a small range
compared to butter. The difference in the
prices of butter is much greater than the
difference in the cost ; hence, it is much
the more profitable to make and sell a
first-class article than a poor one. Mary
Important Facta Concerning Rinderpest.
In compliance with special instructions
from the department of state, Henry J.
Winser, United States consul at Sonne-
berg, Germany, has made a report to the
department, under date ol June o, 1877,
concerning the rinderpest m Germany.
The matter of the report is derived from
the records and high authorities.
A mongother interesting statements which
it contains are substantially the follow
ing: lhc poison ot the rinderpest is
difficult to destroy, attaches readily to all
substances and may be communicated for
an indehnite period. Hides, dry or salted
previoua to shipment, or frozen and salted
after shipment, it from infected animals,
or if themselves infected by contact,
carry the infection to foreign ports, and
can infect animals at such ports. The
German government strictly prohibits
traffic during seasons when the disease is
prevalent within or near its borders in
all articles liable to carry the disease
within infected districts.
The report says the poison "will not
only propagate itself by means of neat
cattle, but will attach itself to sheep,
goats, dogs, cats, fowls, pigeons, etc.
Hay, straw, wood, leather, and even the
earth are media for its dispersion. It is
easily carried about by clothing, espe
cially woolen garments. Upon all these
objects the poison adheres for a very long
time without losing its active principle."
Hence the rigid rules enforced by the
government, which compel the destruc
tion of hides with the bodies of infected
animals, regulate the intercourse ot the
people and the movements and use of
animals of infected places, and enforce
the complete isolation ot diseased cattle.
How to Obtain Dairy Cow.
A New York dairyman of large exper-
ence says :
Td obtain a good lot of cows in the
shortest time, buy the best regardless of
cost. l?ut unfortunately, with most
dairymen this cannot be done lor want
of means, so we must look for other ways
to precure good cows. One way will be
to raise heifers from the best cows in the
herd, got by throughbred males of dairy
breeds. Ihus, althougn not the quick
est, will be by far the cheapest and best
way to accomplish the desired result.
A good cow often lacks much of being a
handsome one. liut the size and shape
of her head and horns have much to do
towards making her a good cow. I have
never yet seen a good one that had large,
broad horns, lhe best cowa carry a
small, fine head, with good sized ears:
and in a broad-hipped cow we always
hnd the milk marrow well developed.
Anyone who owns a cow should lose no
time in finding out her qualifications,
and if she will not make, at the lowest cal
culation, 200 pounds of butter per year.
she should be speedily disposed of. In a
large herd it will be more dihcult toao
complish this than where only a few are
kept. But still it can be closely approxi
mated if care is taken. A cow that gives
milk as blue aa a whetstone is poor
property tor any but a citv milkman.
Many farmers keep too many cows that
produce that kind of milk. A cow can
be kept until she is four years old with
out loss, as her growth will pay the cost
of her keeping, and by that time the
amount ot her production should be
ascertained beyond a doubt. I think
that with care in breeding, cows can be
raised that will yield, on an average,
thre hundred pounds of butter a year, if
Fifty years ago very few dairies in
New York averaged one hundred pounds
of butter to the cow ; now the best cows
do three times aa well. In one diatnct
the milk of 2,500 cows is now received at
sinrfe butter and cheese factory.
Probably greater changes will take place
in the next half century in New York
husbandry, as the Patrons of Husbandry

Sugrar Beet Cnltna-e.
Mr. Burnet t Land reth has the following
remarks on this subject in a Philadelphia
paper, which are perfectly true, but do
not include the fact that for some reason
or other no attempt to establish the
manufacture of beet sugar in this coun
try and several have been made with
every apparent requisite in imported
machinery and experience has hitherto
met with such success as to afford any
inducement whatever for repetition of
lhe production of beet sugar in 1875
was 1,316,623 tons a equal to 61 per
cent, or tne cane sugar manufactured in
the world. The internal revenue tax
in European beet sugar amounted in
1874 5 to $40,000. The production of
beet roots is twelve tons per acre, yield
ing a fraction over one ton of sugar. In
Germany the average proportion extrac
ted ia 91 per cent. The residuum from
the press is two and a half tons from ev
ery twelve tons of roots used, and is
valued at about $5 a ton.
Experiments made in this mnntrv
have established the fact that as many
bushels per acre can be "raised here as
in Europe, and there can be no doubt
that the saccuarine percentage can be
made as great, while the freedom from
internal re venue( which is collected in
in all the states of. Europe where beet
sugar is made) would be in itself a profit,
$53 an acre revenue in some cases being
paid. The fattening of cattle upon the
cake or cellular residuum from the
processes is exceeding profitable and
stimulates the production of hay and
grain, these being necessary adjuncts.
Ahe manure, carefully saved under a
system of stall feeding, ia returned to the
lands from whence the roots were taken,
and with judiciousapplication of commer
cial manures the fertility of the soil is
i attening stock, it will thus be seen,
becomes a prominent feature in all
districts where the beet sugar business
is pursued, and with the new market
opened abroad to the almost limitless
import of American beef and mutton,
this feature is to us of immense impor
tance. The processes of culture require im
proved agricultural implements, with
these comes closer observation of rural
affairs, and thus the farmer is educated
to habits of investigation as well in ag
ricultural chemistry as in the study of
Thus it may readily be perceived that
the sugar beet industry is profitable to
all concerned all classes participate in
the .prosperity it creates and diffuses.
No agricultural pursuit is so beneficial
to the community where it is carried
on the producer and manufacturer
dealing directly with each other.

Often when the functions of digestion
and assimilation have been seriously lm

water has an excellent effect. The way
to make lime-water is simply to procure
a few lumps of unslaked lime, put the
lime in a stone jar, add water until the
lime is slaked and of about the consist
ence of thin cream ; the lime settles,
leaving the pure and clear lime-water at
the top. Three or four tablespoon fuls of

Failure of the
The Russian retreat to the Caucasus,
says the Chicago Times, is attributable to
three causes, lhe discovery that the
Ottoman forcea in that quarter were
greatly in excess of their supposed num
ber ; the fear that Persia would supply
an additional army, whose strength, com
bined with that of the Turks in Asia
Minor, would overmatch the columns of
the grand duke, and the apprehension
that, with the aid ot the lurkish fleet at
Batoum, the Russians would be cutoff
from their base of supplies. From Per
sia, on the southeast, and isatoum, on the
northwest, a Turkish road might be cut
which would leave the Russians at the
mercy of their enemies on the plains of
Ardahan, convenient victims for the
guns ot the relieved garrison of Kara.
The retreat, therefore, was inspired by
the plainest discretion. Grand Duke
Michael could not have held the moun
tain fastnesses and the arid slopes east of
the Black sea with legs than twice the
force under his command ; while still
another division would have been re
quired to maintain the siege of Kara.
There have been no reports from either
Constantinople or St. Petersburg, alleg
ing that the Russian guns made any im
pression of note upon the fortifications
of the historic citadel. Theonly method
by which the invaders could have hoped
to obtain possession of its walls was by
the slow process of cutting off tupplies
and letting starvation repeat the dismal
experiments ot" 1829. The total aban
donment of the isiatic campaign will
give the Turks an opportunity fully tc
repair whatever slight damage has been
done, torevictual the fortress, and make
ampler preparations for a return of the
enemy should the results of the recent
advance south of the Danube require
the Russians to throw another army be
low the Caucasus.
The population of what ia called Lon
don for 1877 is estimated at 4,286,007, or
nearly that of the state of New York,
and fully as manv aa the two states of
Illinois and Iowa. This is 1,000,000 more
than was given by the census of 1871 ; a
large part of the increase results from an
nexing suburbs to the metropolitan dis
trict. An exchange says :
' The section embraced in the regis
ter's tables, under the name of London,
includes parts of three counties, and
comprises an area of 122 square miles,
The city of London is itself only a small
district in the metropolis, just as the "old
city" of .Philadelphia is but a small sec
tion of the consolidated city to-day.
Here the old dividing lines between
the city and surrounding districts
have been obliterated, and are only
vaguely remembered by the present gen
eration, but in the metropolis ot ixn
don they are maintained through the ex
istence of local governments for the dis
tricts, with special laws and customs
inherited from olden times. During
1876. 153.192 children were born in Lon
don, and 91,171 peraons of all ages died,
the annual birth-rale being nearly thirty-
six, and the annual death-rate not quite
twentv-one and a halt per 1,000. The
death-rate is very low lor such a vast
city, but great care is taken with the
sanitary regulations to keep the public
streets in good condition, and to carry off
the sewage, .fourteen thousand men,
with 6,000 horses, are daily, or rather
nightly, employed in cleaning the streets,
and their labors are supplemented by
the work of crossing sweepers and "street
orderlies," or boys who are employed
during the day in collecting manure
from the business streets. lhe streets or
Tendon are cleaned bv contractors, the
work being done at night, and the refuse
which cannot be utilized is earned in
barges to the mouth of the Thames and
dumped into the sea. The outlying dis
tricts of London have increased rapidly
in population within the last ten er
twenty years, rapid transit, elevated and
underground railwavs stimulating the
growth of the city in that direction. '

III Command Appearance, at tne
Bloody Field Some Light Thrown
on the Haaaaere.
All the graves of both men and officers
were discovered without difficulty. The
remains were found to be scattered over
an area of several hundred acres.
All that evening, in camp, the soldiers
were converting cedar boughs into stakes
or head-boards, with which to mark the
graves. Each stake was cut just three
feet long, and waa intended to be driven
into the ground two-thirds of its length.
On the morning of the 3d a fatigue party
was ordered out to exhume and re-inter
the remains of the soldiers who fell
around Custer. There were large and
small trenches. Some contained but few
remains. . Others contained long rows of
separate seta 01 bones, indicating that as
many as a dozen had been buried together.
Where a little band had fought together,
and had fallen side by Bide, or in a heap,
they, had received burial in about the
sam"e order in which they fell. Only the
naked bones remained in the trenches.
There waa no traces of flesh and corrup
tion, and no odor, except that which waa
wafted from the shoe Is of wild flowers
blooming in the valley below. In a few
hours the thin layer of dirt had been re
moved from the bones of over two hun
dred soldiers and the remains re-interred
in the same trenches, but rather more
decently than before. Threo feet of
earth, tastefully heaped and packed with
spades and mallets, was put upon each
set of remains, and the head marked by
a cedar stake.
The same day the bones of the officers
were exhumed. The remains of the
following officers were unmistakably
identified: Gen. Custer, his brother,
uoi. lom uuster, uol. Jveogh, Col. Cook,
Capt. Yates, and Lieuts. Smith, Cal
houn, Crittenden and Beilly. They had
been b::ried just a they had fallen, with
the single exception ot Col. Custer, who
had received interment alongside his
The grave of the Custers was near the
summit of a little knoll, right where
the gallant soldier had taken his last
stand. The ground for two hundred feet
around was filled with remains. Over
sixty men had been killed on that little
elevation. The surface of the knoll was
strewn with dry bones of horses, which
were bleached to the whiteness of ivory.
J? rom tne position oi tne bones it was
evident to the observer that the horses
had been shot for the purpose of forming
a breastwork. It looked aa if the ani-
mala had been led into a position de
scribing a half-circle and shot in their
wniio tne worK ot exhumation waa
going on, Col. Sheridan had a party of
scouts and interpreters scouring the vi
cinity for any undiscovered remains.
There were eight of these scouts, mostly
Crow Indians, including "Curley," who
claims to have been the only man who
escaped from Custer's command. Col.
Sheridan thinks there is great danger
that " Curley " ia a liar. He discovered
that this red Crow knew very little about
the battlefield, and probably knew less
about the battle. Another one of the
scouts is the celebrated Half-Yellow-Face,
who waa badly wounded in the Reno
fight, and who ia a fellow of some verac
ity. Besides these there were three well
known interpreters named Barrett, La
i ourge, and Merendeen, the latter hay
ing fought under Reno. The country
for fifteen miles around was thoroughly
searched. They discovered no evidence
that any one had escaped and was after
ward run down and killed.
Col. Sheridan says that the Indians,
after winning the fight, ran away and
left a large amount of camp equipage.
The bottom where Custer encountered
them has been a favorite camping-ground
for the Sioux for many years. Every
time they broke camp there they aban
doned more or less traps. There are not
less than ten thousand lodge poles lying
around in the tall grass. A search in the
vicinity of the battlefield revealed the
bones of some twenty or thirty Indians.
Japanese Watering Places.
Life at Hakone as passed by the health
seekers from Yokohoma, has very little ro
mance about it. Thetourist will perhaps
be lodged in a couple of rooms that is, a
space consisting of so many mats divided
into two by screens in a farmhouse or
in some tradesman's residence, or even in
some old temple. The sunrise artillery of
opening shutters, inevitable in a Japanese
house, wakes him from his sleep, he dons
the airiest of costumes, and starts for a
plunge in the clear, cold, and as the
natives say, unfathomable waters of the
take. If he has been for any length of
time a wanderer in Japan, he has
probably learned to exist on the food of
the country, and to dispense with articles
of European food, the transport of which
ia always a source of annoyance and
anxiety to the traveler; and it really
requires very little training to become
accustomed to Japanese food, lhe only
point at which the palate rebels ia that
of drink the fermented essence of rice,
drank steaming hot, and resembling
slightly in flavor diluted sherry of the
one and three-pence a bottle type, rarely
finds favor with Englishmen. Moreover,
it is a very rapid intoxicant, and is very
bad stuff to work physically upon. But
with the edibles very little fault can be
found. The flefh of animals, uutil the
settlement of Europeans in Japan, was
utterly unknown aa an article of food
Now, however, shops for the sale of beef
and pork are very numerous in Yeddo
and Yokohoma, and are said to be
wonderfully patronized by the natives
Fish and rice are the staple articles of
food, and these, when artfully seasoned by
edible seaweeds, vegetables, eggs and
fruits, form dishes at which, no European
epicure could with reason turn up his
nose. At the large, fashionable restaurants
of the capital, if the traveler ordered a
dinner on an unlimited scale purely
a la mode japonaise, he must be prepared
for a meal lasting over several hours,
consisting of numberless courses, compos
ed entirely of these two articles, fish and
rice. - lhe very sweets with which tne
banquet opens areextracted from seaweed,
and the side dishes and the sauces made
of eggs and vegetables are really the only
plates which are neither u.h nor rice.
In the country the traveler, of course,
finds many more limited aa to variety.
But having learned the use of chopsticks,
and possessing a bottle or two of English
beer, and not being squeamish in the
consumption of raw fish, he may fare
uncommonly well, and, what ia as impor
tant, will find that at the end of a meal
he is perfectly free from the heaviness
and drowsiness too generally conse-
auent upon a hearty repast of the Euro
pean calibre. Having breakfasted, armed
with a pipe, a stick a sketch-book, and a
few shillings worth of paper money, he
may start for his day's ramble. If he ia
not a convert to Japanese food, at a very
slight cost a coolie may be obtained
who will carry provisions for a day or
two: and. with Hakone as headquarters,
the independent bachelor may spend a
. , , . i . - , :
most enjoyame ionnignt in exploring
the neighborhood even venturing so
far as to make the ascent of the hoiy
mountain Fuji, distant some twenty
miles ; in this case, however, he must
be especially careful that his passport
is m order, for if the Japanese are
especially jealous about one subject
more than another, it is their grand,
lonely mountain. Acting thus indepen
dently, untrammeled by etiquette and
the petty exactions cf society, the trav
eler will never regret having passed a
short time at Hakone. Walk as he may
in any direction, pleasing subjects for
his pencil, odd nooks and corners,
little patches of the uncontaminated
Japan of the romantic past greet him
at every turn of the road. If he be a
good sportsman, he will find among the
simple rustics many a sturdy fellow will
ing to show him happy hunting
grounds abounding with big and small
game, which have been accumulating
ever since the daysoffeudalism, whenthe
great lords of the neighborhood, and
not unfrequently the emperor himself,
were wont to hold great huntimg
festivals extending over several weeks,
and which, thanks to tpe stringent
regulations concerning sporting licenses
issued by the government, have never
been massacred wholesale by the "sports
men" of Yokohoma ; or he may pass a day
of " doloe far niente " with rod and line
among the innumerable inlets and seques
tered corners of the lake, sharing a
rough tiffin with the boatsman nnder
the shade of some water-side shrine, and
enjoying himself thoroughly, so long as
he does not look for sport.
Concerning the Phenomena of Storms.
To the elaborate researches of Mr. Red
field, of New York, who published, in
1831, the first of a series of remarkable
papers on the first phenomena of storms,
we owe our first full acquaintance with
the origin and progress of these tornadoes
or hurricanes, of which we have had such
an abundance this summer. Mr. Red
field's initial proposition that the hurri
cane is a progressive vertical whirlwind
has been fully sustained, as also his aux
iliary proposition that the progress of the
vortex in the line of a parabola, with the
curve making away from the equator a
consequence, it ia believed, of the revolu
tion of the earth upon its axia.
But while these are " fixed facts " con
cerning the origin and cause compara
tively little is positively known. It used
to be common to attribute them to more
occult forces, such as electricity, but the
immense mechanical power stored up in
the heat and vapor of moist air, as abun
dantly demonstrated bv Espy, Peslin and
Reye is now believed sufficient to ac
count for all the wanderful exhibi
tions of force in the gyratory hurri
cane. Whenever a lower stratum
of warm, moist air, is rapidly elevated
above the sea level, which may be by
various causes, there at once occurs an
influx of air from all sides, and the for
mation of the whirl commences. Its
subsequent development depends upon
the supply of moist air, and the size of
the original vacuum, and, once fairly
whirling, it sets out upon its triumplal
parabolic (and diabolic) tour.
The velocity of the wind (which must
not be confounded with the progress of
the storm) in these hurricanes is very
difficult to get at. Mr. Redneld explains
that over and above the average velocity
of the wind come occasional gusts of ex
traordinary speed and power. It is these
gusts which do the mischief, and their
velocity has rarely, if ever, been actually
gauged. A velocity of 600 miles per
hour has been estimated for some of
them, though they should be estimated
by the second rather than by the hour,
for the spasmodic increase in the rapidity
of the whirl ia of very brief duration.
The velocity of one of these gusts in a
British hurricane was figured at- 130
miles the hour, and our own signal corps
have recorded aa high a speed as ninety
miles, without claiming to have meas
ured the fiercer whirls. They are at
least fast enough for all practical pur
poses when they break great treea like
pipe-stems, and set houses, cattle and
men flying over the country.
The Crater of Vesuvius.
Professor Boyd Dawkina in giving an
account to the Manchester geological
society of his visit to the crater of
Vesuvius said : "A coating of yellow
sulphur about three inches thick covered
the lip, and beneath this the loose
gray ashes gave out aqueous vapor at
every pore, which deposited on them in
some places white powdery sulphate of
lime, in others common salt, sal
ammoniac, green chloride of copper, and
specular iron ore, which looked like
little pieces of shattered mirrors scatt
ered through their substance. It was
obvious that here we had a striking
proof of the mode in which water, in
passing through heated rock, can carry
minerals in solutions and ultimately
deposit them. In these deposits we could
easily recognize the mode in which the
various metals were brought up from
deep down in the earth's crust, and
deposited in holes aud crannies in the
rocks which are accessible te man as
mineral veins." In tnis description we
seem to have an approach towards an
answer to the oft-repeated question
Where do metals come from?
Between new-made lovera: "Then
Adelgitha, you will be mine ?" " Yes,
