A writer in the Food Journal, discours
ing on strange dishes, communicates some
interesting notes as to the employment
and mode of preparation of that strangest
of all edible substances, clay. Humboldt,
on the tlth of dune, lisiKl, sjiont a day at a
station iMvupied by the Otomacs, a tribe ot
clay -eaters on the Orinoco. He describes
the earth eaten by them as an unctuous,
almost tasteless clay, true potters' earth.
This is carefully picked, and kneaded into
balls of from four to six inches in diameter,
which are then baked before a slow fire,
until the outer surface becomes of a red-tli-h
color. The earth is said to possess
different kinds of flavor, and it is selected
by the pidate almost as carefully as our
more dainty provisions. Bef ore being eaten
the balls are moistened with water. The
Otomacs, however do not appear to adopt
this article of food from choice, nor do they
eat it the whole year round. When the
waters of the Orinoco and Meta are low
they subsist on turtles aijd fish ; but tlur
ing'the jn'riodical swelling of these rivers
the Otomacs devour enormous quantities
of clay balls, which are kept piled up in
heaps "in their huts. Humboldt was in
formed that an Indian would consume
from three-quarters to one and one-quarter
pound of this food daily, without any ap
preciable injury to health.
The Otomacs are by no means singular
in the adoption of earth as an article oi
food, for the same practice prevails among
several other tribes chiefly in the tropics.
It has been stated by Humboldt and other
traveler that the women employed in the
small village of Banco, on the Magdalena,
in burning earthenware pots, continually
fill their mouth with large lumps of clay.
At San Koja an Indian child was observed
which, according to the statement of its
mother, would hardly eat anything but
earth. The negroes of Guinea are also In
the habit of eating a yellowish kind of
earth called eaouae. 'W hi le the slave trade
between Africa and the West Indies was iu
existence, thes negroes on their arrival at
the plantations would endeavor to pro
cure some similar species of food, main
taining that the earth they devoured was
harmless. It was found, however, that
the eaouae of the West Indies had a dele
terious effect on the health of those partak
ing of it, and its use was strictly forbid
den. In Java the same practice prevails. In
147 some edible clay was sent for analysis
from Samarang to lSerlin, and was found
to tc a fresh-water formation deposited in
tertiary limestone, and composed mostly
of animalcules. According to Labillar
diere, the natives of Nw Caledonia eat
lumps of a friable kind of soap-stone, in
which Vauquclin detected a certain quan
tity of copjn-r. Among some northern
races, too, clay-eating prevails. A careful
analysis of the earth-food of the Lapland
ers showed that it contains a large portion
oi organic matter iroin the xtw ot infu
sorial animals. Among the lower animals
the earthworm and some others are known
to feed upon earth ; and the Spatangus
(heart urchin) and Arenieola (sand worm)
fill their stomachs with sand. The chief
use of clay in the human economy would
appear to be for producing a distention of
the walls of the stomach, which seems to
allay the pangs of hunger.
The Hinge of the Universe.
The beautiful constellation of the
Pleiades is one of the most familiar in the
sky, but it is not generally known how
important a position is held by one of its
stars in the economy of the universe.
We read in the Book of Job of the
"sweet influences of the Pleiades," or more
literally of the " seven stars," but it has
been a "puzzle to biblical scholars what is
meant by this expression. Of this cluster
of stars, which Tennyson compares to a
"swarm of fireflies tangled iu a silver
braid" only six are now visible to the na
ked eye, but as many as two hundred have
been seen through a powerful telescoe.
Iu Greek mythology the group consist-
ed originally ot seven sisters, one of whom
married a mortal, and therefore her star
lost its brilliance and was no longer visi
ble. As the missing one was lost from
view long before the telescope was discov
ered, it is impossible now to tell whether
its light was simply bedimmed, or, as m
some other cases, altogether extinguished.
i lie lost 1'ieiad has been nie suhiect ot
much interest to the poets and painters,
but iu the estimation of astronomers, the
star called Alcyone holds the first rank.
According to the German astronomer.
Maedler, it is the sun around which all the
starry systems are revolving. Alter seven
years ot the most patient research, he
came to the conclusion that Alcyone is the
center or hinge of the universe.
It may not seem to us large and bright
enough to occupy so important a position,
out it must De remembered that it is very
distant, and that its light is 537 years in
reaching our earth. Moreover, according
to Maedler's calculations, eighteen millions
of years arc occupied iu one gigantic
revolution of the universe around this re
The discoveries resulting from the inven
tion of the spectroscope have proved that
there Is very rapid motion among what
are known as the " fixed " stars. Some
are approaching us, others drifting away,
at the rate of from thirty to fifty miles a
second. It was long ago announced by
Herschel that our sun. with its attendant
planets, was moving towards a particular
part of the heavens. It is regarded as
probable by astronomers that the starry
moVcments, like those of the great men in
Spain, are all revolutionary in their charac
ter, but some have fixed upon a star in the
constellation Hercules, instead of Alcyone,
as the central point, or hub, round which
turns the wheel of the universe.
Whichever point may be finally decided
upon, we am not but wonder at the power
and reach of the mind of man, which is
able to penetrate into such immense dis
tances of space, to measure the speed of
such rapid movements, to calculate the
almost inconceivable periods of time occu
pied by the revolutions of the heavenly
bodies, and finally to "point confidently
to the starry magnet which unites the astral
brotherhood in one great family." Youth's
Care of Agricultural Implements.
In no one thing do farmers more need
"line upon line, and precept upon pre
cept," than in die care of their agricultural
implements. As a class, farmers arc
thrifty and economical, and one would
think the disposition to save, which is one
of the outgrowths of their lives, would
lead them to at least give shelter to ex
pensive implements when they are not in
I seldom ride out, but I see plows, or
cultivators standing in the furrows where
they were last used; and on one farm in
particular, whose owner is noted for down
right stinginess, and though he owns hun
dreds of acres, says he can afford to take
but one paper (so this article will do him
no giwd), one may always sec things
enough left rusting out to more than pay
for all the papers he would need. One not
acquainted with the carelc-s habits of
farmers in this respect, would lie r.stoUhed
in looking around, on almost any farm, to
see the machinery, from a reaper to a hoe,
lying about going to ruin for wnM cf care.
In seeing tiiese 1 am often reminded of
what a lady once said when abo.;t to buy
a sewing machine. One of our friends
asked. " What will you do if they make
improvements and get better niii'..incs af
ter you buy yours?" "O," she replied,
carelessly, "throw it up against the fence
and get a new one ; that's the way tin men
do." Audit's too rue. Though farmers
should always purchase the best tools, yet
they find to' their cost that improvements
are not always improvements, and manv
an implement is thrown aside when a little
judicious repairing would have made it do
just as good service as a new one ; and now
is the time to look things over and get
them in readiness for the work that will
soon be crowding upon us. L. li. F. in

four kinds of pavements asphalt, granite

It has often been said that the telescope
cannot reveal so many real wonders as the
microscope. The following statements
respecting the world ef littles around us
go a great way to prove it :
Lewenboeck tells of an insect seen with
the microscoiN?, of which twenty-seven
millions would only equal a mite, "insects
of various kinds may be seen in the cavi
ties of a common grain of sand. Mold is a
forest of beautiftU trees, with the branch
es, leaves, flowers and fruit. Butterflies
are fully feathered. Hairs are hollow
tubes. The surface of our bodies is cover
ed with scales like fish ; a single grain of
sand would cover one hundred and fifty
of these scales, and yet a single scale cov
ers five hundred pores. Through these
narrow openings the sweat forces itelf
out like water through a sieve. The
mites make five hunting steps a second.
Each drop of stagnant water contains a
world of animated beings, swimming with
as much liberty as a whale in the sea.
Each leaf has a colony of insects grazing
on it, like oxen on a meadow.
The Germ Theory of Disease.
There" has been spreading for some time
an idea or hypothesis among the more
philosophic medical men, and among the
thoughtful "laity," that many species ol
disease have their sources ii , and are scat
U re 1 by, seeds or germs. The thought it
self is an impressive and natural one, that
there may lie" cholera seed " or 44 scarlet
fever germ ' or 44 typhoid sporulc " float
ing through the air, just as there are float
ing seeds of thistles or dandelions, or
germs of tulip-trees or limes, or scores of
the nameless plants which sow themselves
wherever there is the slightest bit of soil or
moisture favoring. It is evident that both
air and soil are full of these unseen seeds,
for we have only to burn one speecies ot
vegetation when immediately an entirely
different species springs up, "showing that
for uncounted years the germs of the Litter
have been lying dormant in the earth wait
ing for the favorable moment to germinate
and prow. So with the seeds of different
species of disease. No doubt in this city
there is an invisible cloud of "scarlet fever
germs," " typhoid seeds," and cholera or
" diphtheria spores," always drifting over
from the densely-crowded poor quarters
into those of the wealthy, filling the
houses and garments, and lying perdu un
til the favorable moment in "the organism
of some child or delicate person gives
them a cliance to spring up into vigorous
It is deeply interesting to the laity to
know how far these theories are substan
tiated by scientific experiment of careful
experience. Dr. John C. Dalton. in a re
cent lecture before the New York Acade
my of Medicine, on " The Origin and Pro
pagation of Disease," has attempted to
throw the light of the most recent scientific
discoveries on this most interesting sub
ject. He points out that the tendency ot
the medical mind to believe in the germ
origin of disease was first given by the dis
coveries relating, to parasitic diseases.
Thus, for a long period, no one had any
idea that scabies or itch was anything
more than an eruptive disease, but
when the insect itself was discov
ered (or rediscovered, its mode of
laying eggs and the times required for
hatching and scattering its young, it is
plain that an important step was made in
the means of prevention and cure, and one
which would suggest similar discovery in
other branches of medical science. In the
same way the discoveries of the physical
connection between two different internal
par sites, the tajm-worni of man and the
parasites of measly pork, put physicians at
once on a scientific method of treatment
for the human disease.
For a long time, without a doubt, phys
icians and patients puzzled themselves over
diseases wiiich they could not understand,
which they sometimes called rheumatic
and sometimes typhoid cases. Now such
cases, it is perfectly understood, are due to
a parasitic insect of microscopic size, which
lm the power of diffusing itself rapidly
through the system, and producing all the
symptoms of a fever; we allude to the
cases of infection through trichina spiralis,
caused by eating trichinous pork. It
would even seem that there are trichinous
epidemics, or such favoring conditions in
man and beast that those dreadful parasites
can spread with immense rapidity and fatal
effects. All these cases, however, are of
animal parasites with sexual production,
and capable of being detected by the mi
croscope or scientific processes. The great
field lies beyond, comparatively unworked.
of vegetable organism as the cause ot
Certain skin diseases are now known, by
careful experiment, to be caused by para
sitic, vegetation. The question, of course,
might arise, say in regard to "ring
worm," whether the microscopic fungus
caused the disease, or the disease the fun
gus. A double test, however, could easily
be made, if the fungus spores can be trans
planted to the skin of another individual,
and there germinate and produce the
disease; or if they be treated by the appli
cation of, say iodine or sulphurous acid,
thus destroying the vitality of the fungus,
and the disorder be put an'end to, or mere
secondary symptoms be left behind. The
inference would then be logical that
the vegetable organism is the cause of the
The immense and destructive influence
of microscopic fungi in causing disease
among plants is now recognized iu the
famous "potato rot," and the wide-spread
malady of the grapevine from oiainm.
May not fungi be a source of what are
called the "zymotic" or fermenting hu
man diseases such as scarlet fever, diph
theria, typhoid, cholera, and the like?
Thus far science can only say that there is
a common analogy between the effects of
yeast fungi in fermentation and the phe
nomena of those diseases. The fixed time
which intervenes between exposure to a
ontagion and its appearance, the regular
course of symptoms, their definite termi
nation within a prescribed period, and the
evident reproduction of the contagious
matter these are all indications for future
scientific discovery. They point toward
"germs of disease," but do not prove
them. The presence, too, of the smallest
and simplest of living organisms, called
bucteria, in all forms of putrefaction, so
that they are now considered the living
cause of it. and their development in the
interior of living organisms causing cer
tain diseases, of sheep, for instance, give
an indication of what yet may lie discov
ered as the cause of many hundred conta
gious diseases, esiecially of such a disor
der as small-pox.
Mr. Dalton says nothing of the exist
once of a "cholera genu" which was
thought to have been discovered a few
years since, nor of the action of camphor
bearing vegetation in checking the spread
of malaria, both of which make the germ
theory more probable. The inference
from all these facts and analogies pre
sented by Dr. Dalton seems to be that
many diseases tire probably spread or
caused by vegetable and animal germs.
And with this theory before them, phy
sicians will undoubtedly hit upon many
new modes of prevention and cure. iv", Y.
Preserval he for Wood and Stone Sur
faces. One of the recent inventions for painting
or coating surfaces, says the Journal of the
Society of Arts, is a iiew paint brought
out by Mr. Thomas Griffiths of Liverpool,
which has the property of forming a firm,
hnX'iieirable enamel on the surface to
which it is applied. By this means the
surface is rendered absolutely waterproof,
however porous it may have Iwen in the
beginning. The material is consequently
not only intended for decorative purposes,
but to Is applied as a waterproof coating
to the walls or foundations of dwelling
houses, railway arches, bridges, tunnels,
viaducts, and other structures of brick,
platcr, wood, or iron. It is also stated
that the paint is well adapted for covering
the bottoms of vessels or submerged struc
tures of any description. Various trials
have been made of it. At l'ortoliello it
was tried on some iron plates, and these
were immersed for three months in sea
water. At the end of that time the plates
were taken up and examined, when it was
found they looked fresh and clean as ever,
and quite clear from seaweed. On some of
the enamel being scraped off, the metal
showed no signs of rust, although similar
plates, coated with other kinds' of paint,
and immersed in the same way, writ both
foul and greatly oxidized.
As a second test some of the paint was
applied to the steamers trading to Africa
from Liverpool, and these also showed no
corrosion ou their return.
Tjie philosophers of India once pos
sessed a "book so large that it required a
thousand camels to carry it. A king de
sired to have it abridged, and certain schol
ars reduced it so that it could be carried by
a hundred camels. Other kings came, who
demanded that it should bediminished still
more, until at length the volume was re
duced to four maxims. The first of these
maxims bade kings to be just; the second
prescribed oliedienee to the people; the
third recommended mankind not to eat ex
cept when they were hungry; the fourth
advised women to be modest.
Potato Cakes. Take mashed potatoes,
flour, and a little salt (to make them sweet
add a little powdered loaf-sugar), mix with
just enough milk to make the paste stiff
enough to roll, make it the size and thick
ness of a muffin, and bake quickly.
Thk Danville (Ky ) Advocate tells of a

for a long time, dissolve a piece of alum
the size of a shellbark and stir it into a pint

colors nice and bright much longer, and
the cost and trouble is but a trifle.

Their excellence must of course depend
greatly upon the kind of apples used. Pip
pins are decidedly the finest flavored of all
apples for cooking purposes, and should
be used whenever obtainable in all reciM'S
that call for that fruit as one of their in
gredients. To Destroy Insects. Hot alum water
is a recent suggestion as an insecticide. It
destroys red and black ants, cockroaches,
spiders, chintz-bugs and all the crawling
jR'Sts that infest our houses. Take two
pounds of alum and dissolve it in three or
four quarts of boiling water ; let it stand on
the fire until the alum disappears; then
apply it with a brush, while nearly boiling
hot, to every joint and. crevice in your
closets, bedsteads, pantry shelves, and the
like. Brush the crevices in the floor of the
skirting or mop-boards, if you suspect that
they harbor vermin. If, in whitewash
ing a ceiling, plenty of alum is added to
the lime, it will also serve to keep insects
at a distance. Cockroaches will flee the
paint which has been washed iu cool alum
water. Sugar barrels and boxes can be
freed from ants by drawing a wide cluilk
mark just round the edge of the top of
them, ilie mark must b unbroken or
thev w'll creep over it, but a continuous
chalk line half an inch in width will set
their depreciations at naught. Powdered
alum or borax will keep the chintz bug at
a respectable distance, and travelers should
always carry a package of it in their hand
bags, to scatter over and under their pil
lows, in places where they have rerson to
suspect the presence of such bedfellows.

ing to them, it would be puerile to at
tempt to read character or disposition iu
the fashion and character of the locks dis
played ; but viewed naturally, the hair is
as great an index of temperament and
disposition as the features. Mr. Creer, iu
his volume on hair, for instance, quotes
the following indications of character
founded upon the set and texture of flow
ing locks from a book recently published
in Paris, entitled " Secrets of Beauty:"
"Coarse black hair and dark skin signify
great power of character, with a tendency
to sensuality. Fine black hair and dark
skin indicate strength of character along
with purity and goodness. Stiff", straight
black hair and beard indicate a coarse,
strong, rigid, straightforward character.
Fine dark brown hair signifies the combi
nation of exquisite sensibilities with great
strength o character. Flat, clinging,
straight hair a melancholy but extremely
constant character. Harsh, upright hair
is the sign of a reticent and sour spirit ;
a stubborn and harsh character. Coarse
red hair indicates powerful animal pas
sions, together with a corresponding
strength of character. Auburn hair with
florid countenance denotes the highest or
der of sentiment and intensity of feeling,
purity of character, with the highest capa
city for enjoyment or suffering. Straight,
even, smooth, and glossy hair denotes
strength, harmony, and evenness of char
acter, hearty affections, a clear head, and
suiN'rior talents. Fine, silky, supple hair
is the mark of a delicate and sensitive tem
perament, and speaks in favor of the mind
and character. White hair denotes a lym
phatic and indolent constitution; and we
may add that besides all these qualities
there are chemical properties residing in
the coloring matter which undoubtedly
have some " effect upon the disposition.
Thus, red-haired people are notoriously
passionate. Now red hair is proved by
analysis to contain a lage amount of sul
phur, while very buJ hair is colored
with almost pure carbon. The presence
of these matters in the blood points pecu
liarities of temperament and feeling which
are almost universally associated with
them. The very way in which the hair
flows is strongly indicative of the ruling
passions and inclinations, and perhaps a
clever person could give a shrewd guess
at the manner of a man or woman's dispo
sition by only seeing the backs of their
An Unpleasant Incident ia Church.
AVe have already mentioned that old Mr.
Collamore, who goes to our church, is
very deaf. Last Sunday, in the midst ot
the services. Mr. lloff, who sits immedi
ately behind Mr. Collamore, saw a spider
traveling over the hitter's bald head. His
first impulse was to nudge him and tell
him about it; but he rememlicred that
Collamore was deaf, so he lifted up his
hand and brushed the spider off". Iloft
didn't aim quite high enough, ami conse
quently in his nervousness, he hit Colla
more quite a severe b ow; the old man
turned around in a rage to see who bad
dared to take such a lhVrty with him, and
Hott began to explain with gestures the
cause of the occurrence. But ( 'ollamore,
in a loud voice, demanded what he meant.
It was very painful for Hofl'. The eyes of
the whole congregation wen; upon him.
and he grew nil in the face, and in desper
ation exclaimed :
" There was a spider on your head !'
"A white jdace on my head, hey?
S'pose'n there is, what's that to you ?" said
Collamore. "You'll know what it is to be
bald-headed yourself, some day."
" It was a spider," shrieked Hoff, while
the congregation smiled and the perspira
tion began to roll oft' his face.
" Certainly it's wider," said Collamore
'"and it's got more in it than yours. But
you let it alone do you mind ? You let
iny head alone in church."
"Mr. Collamore," shrieked Hoff, "there
was a bug on your head, and 1 brushed
it off this wajr."
And Hoff made another gesture at Colla
m ore's head.
The old man thought he was going to
fight him then and there, and hurling his
hymn-book at Hofl, he seized the knecling-
ftool on the floor of the pew. and was
about to bang Mr. Hoff, when the sexton
interfered. An explanation was written
on a fly-leaf of the hymn-book,whereupon
Mr. Collamore apologized in a boisterous
voice, and resumed his seat. Then the
services proceeded. They think of asking
Mr. Collamore to worship elsewhere.
Don't Tamper with a Cough. rerhaps
in the whole catesrory of diseases to which hu
manity is susceptible, the eoufrh is most neg
lected' in its early stage. A simple cough is
generally regarded as a temporary affliction
unpleasant and nothing more; but to those
who have paid dearly fr experience, it is the
signal for attack for the most fearml of all
diseases Consumption. A cough will lead to
consumption if not checked so sure as the
rivulet Iead9 to the river, yet it is an easy ene
mv to thwart, if met by the propr remedy.

Modern Medical Discovery. It is
claimed that disease, with a few excep
tions. ha been conquered by the research
and intellect of enlightened men ; and yet
a noted professor of New York admits that
"of all sciences, medicine is the most un
certain," and that ' thousands are annual
ly slaughtered in the sick room." Certain
' schools " of medicine are in existence, one
of which " makes the patient ill," in order
to claim a cure; and another administers
" sugar-coated bread pills," relying upon
nature to effect her own cures. Dn. J.
Walker, of California, an old and respec
ted physician, tried both modes of treat
ment and both failed. He then appealed
to nature's curative herbs ; and now en
joys rugged health. He has given the ben
efit of his discovery to the world, in the
shape of Vinegar Bitters, and since its
introduction has sold a quantity almost
large enough to make a small harbor, or
float the " Great Eastern." Its curative
proprieties are attested by grateful thous
ands. A highway robber captured in Maine
the other day proved to le a graduate
from Harvard," but after all his education
was a help to him, as he pleaded his own
case and got off" with three months in jail.
Hack, Hack! Cough, Cough.
Cough is a symptom by which various
diseased conditions of the throat, bronchial
tubes .nd lungs manifest themselves. But
whether it arises from the irritation produced
in the throat and larynx by taking cold, from
an attack of Bronchitis, from incipient Con
sumption, or from various other causes, noth
ing will allay it more speedily nor cure it more
permanently than Dr. Pierce's Golden Medi
cal Discovery. It does not catter whether it
be a recent attack, or a lingering cough, the
Discovery is in eitliercase equally well adapted
for its relic and permanent cure. In fact, it
will cure a cough in one-half the time neces
sary to cure it with any other medicine, and
it uoe it, not by drying it up, but by remov
ing the cause, "subduing the irritation, and
healing the affected parts. No time should be
lost in commencing the use of a proper medi
cine for the relief of a Cough, for unless this
course is pursued, serious and dangerous
disease of the lungs is liable to result.

Buffalo, N. Y.,' Dee. 13, 1ST0.
Pr. Tierce For the past six months I have
used your Golden Medical Discovery in my
practice, and in that time I have tested its
merits in severe coughs, both acute and
chronic, in chronic disease of the throat, se
vere cases of bronchitis, general derangement
of the system, constipated condition of the
bowels, and wherever a thorough alterative
has been indicated. In all cases I have found
it to act gently yet thoroughly and effectually
in removing the various diseased conditions,
and bringing about a healthy action through
out the system. Yours fraternally,
