A iiovt a thousand years ago a colony
of Icelanders was planted on the western
coast of Greenland. They were hardy
people, inured to cold and meager living,
and there seemed to te no reason whythej;
should not take root in the frozen soil ot
their new homes. They built a stone
church there and stone houses to live in,
of which the ruins are still lobe seen. liut
what became ot the builders is a question
that has never lx-en solved, and never will

AVhex the anaconda was on exhibition
here, says the San Francisco A Ifa, it was
customary to feed him with a rabbit every
few days, jsiid the reptile throve on his
diet. When the snake was taken to Sacra
mento for exhibition it was uncertain how
long the show would stay; but the patron
age ot the Scramentans was generous, and
the agent at once telegraphed for his showy
posters to "bill the town." The dispatch
read: "Send 'Jul cuts immediately," but
when received it read : "Send 200 cats im
mediately." It was a little bit of a sur
prise to the agent in San Francisco when
he read the message, but he reasoned that
rabbits were scanr in Sacramento, aud it
was necessary to substitute cats for the
regular provender, so lie started out an
army of boys to catch all the stray cats.
Iy "the afternoon train ho sent a crate of
r.lcat., with a letter s.iying: "I send 75
cats by this train, and wiil forward balance
to-morrow, but 1 am afraid that number ol
cats will cat the snake, if they get loose,
instead of being eaten by him."'
Ax audacious trick, says the Court Jour
nal, was lately played by a "sneak thief"
at a London club, lie entered the hall
without attracting the notice of the porter,
and proceeded to empty the pockets of the
great coats he found ranged in a corridor.
Vhilo selecting a few ol the liest. he was
interrupted by a memlter, who in astonish
ment asked hhn what he was doing "Oh.
this is my regular business." he said. "I
am employed to clean the gentlemen's
coats in several clubs. 1 take all the grease
out of their collars." "Indeed." said the
gentleman, interested, thinking he had got
hold of one he could turn to account.
"How long do von take ':" "Why, I will
Ik-back with these in an hour.'"' "If so
you may as well take mine," s:ud the mas
ter, adding his coat to the heap, and es
corting the "sneak thief" past the jiorter.
"What great conveniences you have in
London!" remarked this country gentle
man to a group of his friends. "I have
just given my coat to a man I found in
"tin corridor, who cleans coats for the
club." "To whom d you sav?" cried
two or three. "The man I found carrying
the coats out. Wait 1 have his card."'
But the knowing ones did not wait ; they
hurried out to liud the pockets of some

Storing Wt Coal.
The London Medical Record says that
eople who store wet coal in their cellars
expose themselves to the dangers of sore
throats and other evils, Even ihe tire
damp which esejies from coal mines arises
from the slow decomposition of coal at
temperatures but little above that of the
atmosphere, but under augmented pres
sure. I!y wetting a mass of fre-hly bro
ken coal.'and putting it into a warm cellar,
the heap i heated to such a degree that
carburet ted aud sulphuretted hydrogen
are given oil lor long eriods of time, and
pervade the whole lions'. '1 he liability of
wet coal to produce mischievous result
under such ciren instances, may be appre
ciated from the fact that there are several
instances on record of the spontaneous
combustion of wet coal when stowed in
the bunkers or holds of ships. And from
this cause doubtless many missing coal
vessels have perished.

The entrv into the Fast llooin was as
follows : 5lr. Sartoris and his best man
to the foot of the dais, where thellev. Mr.
1 many, pastor of the Metropolitan Meth
odist Episcopal Church, awaited the com

a simple ceremony ; next Miss Conklmg,
Senator Conkling's daughter, in white silk
trimmed with tulle, and broad white sash,
fastened by a spray of pink flowers ; with
her was Senator Frclinghuysen's daugh

white sash, caught by pale blue flowers.
Then Miss Lizzie Porter in while and blue
and Miss Minnie Sherman in white, with
pink trimming; .Miss Drexel. blue and
bright piquante ; Miss Madge Dent, pink.
Last, Miss Fish, blue, and Miss Barnes,
Miss Grant's favorite companion, in white
and pink. Iheu entered
THE BOXXIK BRIDE,
leaning on her father's arm. Her dress
was of the costliest white satin, with a
train over three yards long, trimmed with
two pointe d'Aleneon flounces half a yard
deep, headed by fleecy puffings of tulle, in
which were imbedded wreaths of orange
blossoms. lielow the lace was a satin flounce
a quarter of a yard deep, box-plaited on,
with graeetul folds la-tween the plaits.
The waist was high, trimmed to match the
skirt, the sleeves reaching to elbows. Her
veil was of tulle, crowned with orange
blossoms. Her pearl and diamond orna
ments, presents from the groom, are val
ued at $10,000. She carried an exquisite
bouquet of white flowers in a dainty carl
and silver holder, set with jewels, and a
jM-arl fan, with point-lace cover and her
monogram in jewels. Mrs. Grant's dress
was black Antwerp silk, embroidered with
lilac spr.ij-s, and large deep purple vel
vety pausies and pulls, of black illusion.
The groom was in lull evening dress, and
Fred Grant, his best man, in full uniform.
The ushers also were in lull uniform.
THE 11KEAKKAST TABLE
luxuriated with every conceivable floral
product wrought into every imaginable
torni. Mottoes in flowers, "Success to the
President," "Success to the Supreme
Court," and "Success to the Navy and
Army,' were conspicuous at the table
ends. The m?m, printed in blue letters,
on a white silk riblton, fastened to a heavy
pink paper background by a white knot,
was laid at each plate.
At VI in. the bride disappeared to don
her traveling dress, which was a rich
brown silk skirt, and elaborately embroid
ered camel's hair cloth polonaise, hat and
rloves to match the suit. 1 lie " lenna,"
one of the handsomest palace cars ever
made, bore the voting couple to New York,
where the- will stay until Saturday, when
they take a steamer lor England. Ihe

Mrs. Sartoris leaves her native country
with only twenty-live immense trunks, in
which she carries her modest wardrolie, to
say nothing of the boxes which it will re
quire to shelter the flood of gifts rained
upon this fortunate young damsel ol nine
teen years. Although her dresses were all
niadebv a New York modiste, they are ex-
qui-itely beautiful, and reflect credit on the
kill ol our countrywomen equal to the
far-lamed notoriety of Worth. In her
trousseau are six black silk walking-suits,
variously trimmed, one with straw, with
silver, and lace, anoth r with jet andjace ;
three long black silk dresses and twenty
embroidered white muslins, some to be
worn over colored silks, others as watteau
morning dresses ; an evening dress of silk
plaid with two waists, one high, the other
decollete ; one dress, which looks like a
beautiful dream, is ol pale lilac, trimmed
with plaiting of crepe lisse of the same col
or, and covered with masses of almost
fragrant violets. Another has a petticoat
of white silk, with puttings of crepe lisse
and a court train of white silk, brocaded
with white and purple lilac blossoms and
pink moss rosebudsat the left side, and ex
tending entirely around the train is a
wreath of the same flowers. Then there
is a tairv-like blue dress, trimmed with
dainty straw and lilmy Valenciennes
flounces, and another of white silk,
trimmed with black Brussels lace and
flounces. Then there are India shawls, so
sort and fine that they can be slipped
t hrough a finger-ring; aud tiny slippers and
shoes for every dress, and parasols with
lace covers and mrcly-carvednandles; ex
quisite and costly sets of black ami white
laces, given her by her fattier, and lingerie
that is as dainty and as richly made as if
for some undine or nymph.
As to presents, nothing like them, either
in elegance or profusion, hs ever been
seen in this country. The up-stairsroom,
denominated the library, was literally
packed with gifts, aud tables groaning with
ihe precious weight, stood on three sides
of the room. The sight was perfectly daz
zling and bewildering. A very conspicu
ous present, standing as high as the room
door, in a leather case lined with pink
satin, was from Mr. G. W. Childs, the
Philadelphia banker. It was a solid lus
terless silver fruit set, lined with gold, con
sisting of an elaborate einrgne, plates,
and seven dozen sjHwns, forks, and knives.
Another costly affair was the present ot
Mr. I trexel, another Philadelphia banker,
which was a solid silver breakfast set ot
ten or twelve pieces, in a case nearly as
large as the one just described. Senator
and Mrs. Stewart donated a beautiful bur
nished toilet mirror with monogram on
top, and toilet articles to match. A card
cae of native silver ore came from f;ir-ofl
Denver. Col. Some beautiful and rare
moonstone earrings, sent from some other
distant place. Governor Shepherd sent a
magnificent set of pink cwal. Then there
were several costly point-lace handker
chiefs, some Valenciennes flounces, fichus,
and sashes; a large emerald ring, set on
either side with diamonds, an aigrette, the
design being a peacock graspingln its feet
a pearl of great price, its body emerald, its
tail glistening with a hundred tremulous
brilliants, aud an emerald and pearl set
costing S4.000. There were numberless
necklaces and lockets, and several elegant
gold watches, niomentoes from the brides
maids, and a solid silver ice-cream set; fans
of every description ; gold bracelets, one
espociaily superb with monogram "N.
W. G." in diamonds and rubies ; diamond
lings, punch-bowls, gold salt-cellars, nut
pickers with saucy little squirrels cracking
golden nuts on the handles ; glove boxes
in every stvle aud of every material, and
jewelry and riches euongh lb rival Tifli-ny's
or Ball & Black's establishments.
The only other marriage which has ever
occurred at the White House was thatol
Miss Marie Monroe, in 120. to a Mr. Gov
erneur, of Ne York, but it could never
have approached the present one in magnificence.
One'of the most fruitful causes of dys
pepsia our national disease is, unques
tionably, traceable to the excessiv drink
ing of ice-water. We use far more ice in
this country than is used in all the world
Ieside. While we are Inclined to boast of
this as a luxury, we forget that, like many
other luxuries, it does a deal of harm. The
temperature of the stomach at which di
pestion takes place, is from 93 to 100
(Fahrenheit). Consequently, the effect ot
swallowing ice-water, which must for a
while reduce the temperature from 30 to
40 at least, cannot fail to be hurtful, and if
habitually indulged in, to insure the dis
order so widely prevalent and so distress
ing in character. In cities and large towns
we are perpetually drinking ice-water in
winter as well as summer. We drink it
before our meals, with our meals, after
our meals, on going to bed and on getting
up. In fact, there is no hour when we are
awake that we do not drink it. If you
ring the bell at any American hotel, the
servant who answers it brings you a pitch
er of ice-water, supposing that you want
ttiat anyhow, and that you must swallow
a certain quantity before you are prepared
to make your other wishes known. If you
go to breakfast on a bitter cold morning,
the first thing the waiter places before you
is a goblet of ice-water; and the chief ener
gy he displays is in keeping the goblet full
to the rim. Although he may not get you
anything you order, you can depend on
hifn for a bounteous supply of the freezing
Immoderate drinking of any kind is al
most entirely due to habit. This is par
ticularly true of ice-water, which, by spon
taneous reaction, tias the eHect oiexciung,
rather than allaying thirst. The more we
take of it, the "more we want. The man
who begins with a pin a day, wilk before
a great while, crave half a gillon, and im
agine that he cannot do with less.
M can while, Jiis food will have no chance
to digest, and temporary indigestion will
in due time become chronic. His deranged
stomach will alfi-ct his head, and the in
dulgence of a foolish habit finally result in
unhealthy action of the brain, and possible
disturbance of his mental and moral facul
ties. The objection is not to water in any
reasonable quantities, but to the ice that i"s
put into it. Water that is allowed to run
for a while through pipes, or drawn from
a well, is as cool, even in summer, as is
consistent with perfect health. After
drinking it for a time the palate will not
ask for ice. It is advisable to vary water
with cold tea, coffee, milk or lemonade,
since the interchange of these has a ten
dency to diminish the amount of liquid
wanted ; and health generally is better
preserved by little than by large drinking
of any kind." Scribner'a Mouthly.
We have more or less inquiries every
season about transplanting strawberries
in summer or autumn, the nest time. etc.
We would say that the best time of all to
make new plantations is in the month of
April, or in late seasons, in the early part
of May. But there are circumstances that
wnl justify transplanting the latter part of
the season. Jt the owner ot a garden has
no bed of strawberries to bear next sum
mer, we would advise setting one just as
soon as good plants can be obtained, and
the ground is moist.
There is great difficulty in procuring
plants for setting in August or Septem
ter. Every grower of r.ants for market
knows that to dig up before the season of
growth is over will probably destroy
many, unless a great deal of care is exer
cist'd. Every runner that issues from the
original plant, will start leaves and strike
root every few inches in its growth, and
continue to do so, if not broken, until
growth is arrested by cold weather. Af
ter new plants have formed along the run
ner, it soon ceases to depend upon the
original plant, but draws its sustenance
troin the latest ones formed ; hence, if we
dig up the first roots, leaving two or three
of those most recently rooted, the runners
will continue to grow and strike roots,
nd none be destroyed by the tugging.
lint this requires a great deal of care, and
greatly augments the cost of digging, so
that nursery men must have much higher
prices for their plants, to compensate
them for their extra labor.
New plantations made in April, if well
cared for, ought to be able to furnish good
strong plants this month, and we would
advise any reader who wishes to plant a
bed for family use to prepare it well, im
mediately engage the plants, and when
the first rain conies set them with care. If
everything should prove favorable the
piants would become well rooted hetore
winter, and i tertians hear half aeronnext
summer. Ii not transplanted before the
20th ot September the plants will not be
likely to become so deeply rooted as to be
able to resist the heavings of the win
ter or spring frosts, should they he unfa
vorable, and the next summer's crop of
berries would probably be ligtit. Ameri

The Intelligence of Bees.
The following illustration of the power
possessed by insects to communicate their
experiences to one another is given by a
lady correspondent ol the London specta
tor: "I was staving in the house of a
gentleman who was fond of trying experi
ments, and who was a bee keeper. Hav
ing read in some book on bees that ttie
Itest and most humane way of taking the
honey without destroying the tiees was to
immerse the hive for a few minutes in a
tub of cold water, when the bees, being
half-drowned, could not sting, while the
honey was uninjured, since the water
could not penetrate the closely waxed
cells, he resolved on trying the plan. I
saw the experiment tried. The bees, ac
cording to the recipe, were fished out of
the water filter the hive had been im
mersed a few minutes, and with those re
maining in the hive laid on a sieve in the
sun to dry. But as by bad management,
the experiment had len tried too late in
the day, as the sun was going down, they
were removed into the kitchen, to the
great indignation of the cook, on whom
they revenged their sufferings as soon as
the warm rays of ttie lire liefore which
they were placed revived them. As she
insisted on their being taken away, they
were put back into their old hive, which
had been dried, together with a portion of
their honey, and placed on one of the
shelves of the apiary, in which were five
or six other strong hives full of bees, and
left for the night. Early the next morn
ing my friend went to look at the hive on
which" tie experimented the night before,
but, to his amazement, not only the bees
from that hive were gone, but the other
hives were also deserted not a bee re
mained in any of them. The half
drowned bees must therefore, in some
way or other, have made the other bees
understand the fate which awaited them."
The Right or Left Arm I
The question, whether a gentleman
walking with a lady should give her his
right or left arm, is frequently discussed.
Custom and written etiquette are rather in
favor of the right, although there are ex
cellent reasons in behalf of the left arm.
Either one or the other, permanently re
t lined, is vastly better than the awkward
and absurd habit of changing arms, so as
to place the lady on the inside of the
promenade. One advantage of giving the
left arm is that the person on ttie right
naturally takes the lead, so that, in the
country or city, in the sm et or park, lie
ihus readily directs the way, instead ol
waiting to consult with his companion, or
causing a jostling by each of them trying
to move to opposite "iKints. Another ad
vantage is, that in a crowded thoroughfare,
such as Broadway, for example, where the
sidewalk is invariably encumbered with
merchandise and thronged with people, a
gentleman needs his right arm to remove
obstructions aud keep rude or careless
folks out of the way. "Home and Society,'1''

Boiled Wheat. Excellent dishes for
breakfast, dinner or supper can be made
from unground wheat boiled. The fresh
est and cleanest wheat, with the plumpest
kernels, should be selected. The white
and the amber-colored wheats cook the
most readily, and they are also preferable
on account of having a thinner skin. Time
is saved, in picking it over, to have it first
run through a smut machine and then
washed, though ttie cooking over is indis
pensable. Put it to boil with five or six
parts water to one of wheat, by measure.
Cover close, and after it begins to boil set
it where it will barely simmer. Cook it
four or five tiours, or until the kernels
mash readily between the thumb and fin
ger. Hard wheat of any kind will re
quire still more time, and some kinds may
be cooked all day without softening.
When done it should be even full of water
or juice, which thickens and becomes
gelatinous on cooking. Salt and send to
the table warm, to eat with meats and
vegetables at dinner. It can also be eaten
by itself, trimmed with sugar or butter, or
both, or sirup, or milk, ft molds nicely,
and may be served cold at breakfast 6r
supper, or it may be steamed up and
served hot at breakfast. The long cook
ing it requires, of course precludes its be
ing served fresh at that meal. After it has
once cooled, however, it cannot be made
so soft aud liquid as at first by any sub
sequent cooking. Like other starch,
when it once sets it loses its liquidity.
Marvelous, if True.
It is a curious fact, it steamboatmen be
not misled, that the Mississippi is con
stantly moving its ctiannel further east
The world, revolving from west to east,
may force the great volume of water to im
pinge more violently against the eastern,
than its reactionary motion against the
western shore. Earthworks erected in the
extreme northern portion of the bights on
which Columbus, Kentucky, stands, on
which Bankliead's battery was long en
camped, have long since been swept into
the Gulf of Mexico. So with those at Fort
Pillow aud at Randolph, of which not a
vestige remains. The pretty plateau of
1SC1 at the water's edge in front of the
navy-yard, on which there were ten or
twenty old thirty-two-pounders and bar
barous field-pieces of the olden time, now
pave the ocean's bottom, and nearly sixty
acres in front of Memphis have drifted out
to sea. Ttie same state of facts obtains at
Vicksburg ami Natchez, and it is only at
Helena, and for a very short distance, that
the uplands on the western shore of the
.Mississippi are at all or anywhere visible.
From Cairo to the Balize the river is ap
parently moving toward the east. The
same facts and the same influences, civil
engineers luve often asserted, affect rail
ways that extend from north to south.
The eastern rails are worn away more rap
idly than those on the west side of the
trackway. Thereniustbesonieunsecn force
tilting each locomotive toward the rising
sun, and we would Ite pleased to learn
whether these (ironically speaking) " crea
tures," are addicted to the ugly habit of
tumbling over and smashing things toward
ttie east. Do a majority of little accidents
occur on the eastern side of the great high
ways connecting Chicago and Mobile and
New Orleans? and do river pilots find it
difficult to prevent steamers sticking their
noses into the eastern bank of the river?
The facts as to the conduct of the river are
as stated, and with singular impatience we
await a sot ut ion of ttie mystery at the hands
of the Lotos Club, or of the Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Dumb Brutes, or
at the hands of the woman crusaders, who
must take a deep interest in this question
affecting the fortunes of the " Big brink,"
as the Chickasaws called the Mississippi.
Dox't Tamper with a Cough. Perhaps
in the whole category of diseases to which hu
manity is susceptible, the couh is most neg
lected in its early stage. A simple euugh is
generally regarded as a temporary affliction
unpleasant and nothing more; but to those
who have paid dearly for experience, it is the
signal for attack for the most fearful of all
diseases Consumption. A cough will lead to
consumption if not checked so sure as the
rivulet leads to the river, vet it is an easy ene
mv to thwart, if met by the proper remedy.

Means What He Says.
Though "eonfimations strong as proofs of
Holy Writ" and as numerous as the sands on
the sea shore, were produced to prove that
the proprietor of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Kemedy
is in earnest and means what he says, when
he offers $ 500 reward for any case of Catarrh
which he cannot cure, yet there would be
some skeptics and fogies who would continue
to shout "iMm65f."' " Ht'MBt'G ! !" "It
cannot be, because Dr. Homespun savs Ca
tarrh cannot be cured." "Now, this Dr. Home
spun is the identical, good natured old fellow
who tionestly believes and persists in declar
inz that this earth is not round or spherical,
but as flat as a " slap-jack," and does not turn
over, othewise the water would all be spilled
out of Ieacon Bascom's mill pond. But as
tronomical science has positively demonstrated
and proven that Dr. Homespun is wrong in
supposing the earth to be flat and stationary,
and medical science is daily proving the fact
that he is no less mistaken and behind the
times in regard t- the curability of Catarrh.
In short it has been positively proven that
this world mores, ana that medical science
is progressive the opinion of Dr. Home
spun to the contrary notwithstanding. That
Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy will cure Ca
tarrh, thousands who have used it attest.

We invite attention to the advertisement of
Sage's Catarrh Kemedy. Our readers will
bear us witness that we never knowingly
commend humbugs of any name or nature,

eases, we unqualidedlv pronounce it a valua

Through all the ages of study and
investigation which have marked the path
of scientific discovery, " one especially al
luring object has tempted! the inquiries and
speculations of philosophers. It is what
the wizards and witches of olden time, the
iugglers of India, soothsayers of Arabia,
ilagi of Egypt, necromancers of Turkey
ana the Orient, and alchemists of civilized
Europe have sought, but sought in vain
a vegetable non-poisonout . Elixir, which,
by cleansing the blood, removing from the
system all impurities, strengthening the
nerves, the muscles, and. the brain, and vi
talizing every fiber of the system, should
bid defiance to the corroding hand of dis
ease. Dr. Walker, of California, discovered an
herb, the properties of which, if they do
not entirely fulfill all the conditions above
mentioned, have at leat proved themselves
efficacious in all of them ; this herb Doctor
Walker has made an ingredient in his fa
mous Vixegar Bitters, which can be ob
tained of any wholesale Druggist through
