The Effect of Imagination.
Many years ago. a cele'-rated French
physician, anthor'of an excellent work on
the eflit-ts of imagination, wished to com
bine tinHry with jracticc, in order to con
firm the truth of his proHsitious. To this
end. heiwggd the Minister of Justice iu
Pan's to allow him to try an experiment on
a criminal condemned to death. Tlw min
ister consented, and deliveml to him an
assassin of distinguished rank. Ourjarnnf
sought the cu:jrit. and thus addressed
him : " Sir. several persons who are inter
ested in youi family have prevailed on the
judge not to require of vou to
mount the scaffold, and exose your
self to the gaze of the popu
lace. He has. therefore, commuted
your sentence, ami sanctions your lieing
bled to death within the precincts of your
prison; your dissolution will be gradual
and five from pain."
Tiie criminal submitted to his fate ;
thought his family would be less dis
graced, and considered it a favor not to be
compelled to walk to the plac of public
execution. He was conducted to the an-
poiuiea rooin,wneri every preparation
was made beforehand ; lus eves were ban
daged ; he was strapied to a "table ; and. at
a preconcerted signal, four of his wins were
gently pricked with the point of a pin. At
each corner of the table was a small foun
tain of water, so contrived as to flow gen
tly into basins placed to receive it. The
atient. believing- that it was his blood lie
teard flowing, gradually became weak ;
and the oonversati'm of the doctors in
an undertone confirmed him in this opin

Clearing Land With Dynamite.
The usefulness of dvnamite in clearing
land was very satisfactorily demonstrated
recently on the estate of Sir W. Stirliu
.Maxwell, near the Forth and Clyde Ca
nal. Scotland. The operator. Mr. Donnic
after explaining the modus operandi ol dy
namite, turned his attention to the root
stumps of a number of trees that had r
cently been cut down. A one and a half
inch hole was bored vertically to a deptl
of twelve or fifteen inches in one of tin
stumps. and then continued some two leet
into the ground. 1 wo or three cartridges
were put into the hole and firmly driven
home with a wooden rammer. 1 hen
small primer cartridge, with a cattipied
fuse was dropjK'd in and rammed home,
and the whole tanijied and stemmed tiy
idling it to the top with water. Alter
the explosion the stump was found rent
ma most extraordinary manner: but the
general opinion was that the bore-holt'
had been made so deep that the enerirv of
the explosion had spent ltsclt too much on
the subsoil and too little on the wood.
The next stump was bored to a less depth,

another part of the stone was selected for
laying on the charge. The latter was
loosely covered a before, and fired. The
destructive effect of this explosion was
very great. Two other large bowlders
were next attacked. The lirst of them
was imbedded iu tolerably lirm ground.
and on being lired in situ, without any

As the other bowlder was imbedded in

stronger charge the bowlder was so thor

Of all the erroneous notions pertaining
to the preservation of health, says the
Sanitarian, no one is fraught with more
mischief than that about taking cold. Ac
cording to the popular, and, I may also
say. to some extent the nrotessiouai, view,
taking cold is the greatest disease and
death producer in the world. Fully
eighty per cent, of those who consult
physicians premise by saying they have
taken cold. If a relapse is taken during
convalescence, ten to one the blame is laid
to the action of cold, " My pain Is greater,
1 must have taken cold; my cough is
worse, 1 must have token cold; I do not
feel as well this morning, I think 1 have
token cold, but I don't see how," are e
pressions which the physician hears a doz
en times a day. The latter is thereby
oiU'Dvieu to the reflection that if it were
not for death dealins colds he would hav
little to do, and convalescence would sel
dom be interrupted. But if the physician
takes the trouble to think a little more
upon this subject, he will be convinced
that to his own craft Is due this stereo
typed and never-ending complaint of his
patients about taking cold, The sick and
their friends nearly always take their cue
about disease and its causes from the
trusted family doctor, and he accounts very
often indeed for an aggravation of the
symptoms of those under his charge (th
cause of which aggravation, by the way
may be and often is verv ditlicult to detect
by the easy and satisfying explanation of
having takeu cold. In this way he gets
over the trouble ol making plain to unta
tored minds what is often a puzzling
problem to the most trained intellect, and
at the same time shifts the responsibility
for the relapse on the uncomplaining and
much-abused weather, bo it is that men
and women have been led to regard el
matie changes as the greatest enemy to
their health; if it were not for them thei
health would be next to jierfect from the
beginning to tneend ot the vcar. lhou
sands of consumptives, especially in the
first and setMiiid stages of the disease, are
firmly of the opinion that if they could
only escajie the nildign influence of one
cold alter another, their recovery would
be assured. To this end precautions of the
most inwrougn character are scrupulously
Observed, and yet cold after cold is taken,
the patient, mother or nurse knows not
how. vt hen the human body is at it
prime with youth, vigor, purity and a
good constitution on its side no degree
of ordinary exposure to cold gives rise to
any unpleasant ellccts. All the ordinary
precautions against colds, coughs and
rheumatic pains may be disregarded and
no ill effects ensue. But let the blood be
come impure ; let the body become de
ranged from any inherited or acquired dis
order, or iet tne vigor begin to wane, and
the infirmities of age be felt by occasional
derangements in some vital part, eithc
from inherited or acquired abuses, and the
action of cold will excite more or less dis
order of some kind, and the form of this
nisorucr, or tne disease which will ensue
will be determined by the kind of pre-ex
isting blood impurity or the pre-existing
lauitot tne organic process. If the pre
existing fault be in the deficient, excretion
of lactic and uric acids by the kidneys and
skin, the disease develojied by the cold
will lie rheumatic; if the lungs be the fault
either by acquired or inherited abuses, in
flammation will be likely to ensue; or, if
there be conjoined with the pulmon ry
lauit an impure condition ot the blood
from the long-continued rebreathing of
breathed air, consumption will not unlike
ly show it-elf. In no other way can the
influence of cold in the development of
diverse ill cases be accounted lor; devel

in another; this disease at one time ina
person and another disease at another
time; while at other times and seasons

Making Good Butter.
The great scarcity and high price of
good butter will undoubtedly stimulate
production. A good article w ill, without
doubt, command remunerative prices dur
ing the w ole season. The better grades
are never a drug in the market, while
those denominated grease butter cause a
loss to country merchants, which they
must make up in an advanced riee on
goods given in exchange; not to mention
the disgust created in those who are un-
fortunae enough to buy it. Nevertheless
there is no reason why fully three-quar
ters of the grease butter that comes to the
market might not have been at least free
from rancidity, for rancidity results prin
cipally lrom want ot care in the churning
Uneot the principal mistakes with but
ter-makers w ho do not have conveniences
lor all the details of the art. Ls that they
continue to churn too long after the butter
s formed, persisting often until the butter
s gathered into a solid compact mass. A
lK'tter way would lie wheu the old-fash
ioned churn is used, as soon as the butter
is well formed, or when it does not stick
to the dash, to turn up the churn and
strain the buttermilk through an own
cloth. This cloth should have been previ
ously wetted lirst w:th hot, and after in
cold, water. When sufficiently drained,
set the churn again on its bottom, take a
pail of the coldest water you have and
jiour into the chum slowly from as high an
levation as possible. Then till the churn
nearly full of water, to dilute the butter
milk as much as possible; then gather the
butter into a mass, and work and salt
at the rate of one ounce of salt to each
pound of butter. The next day, the but
ter may have another slight working.
when it is fit for market or packing away.
Ot course, if a good modern churn be
used, the washing may tie accomplished
with less trouble : the buttermilk m.ir be
drawn from the hole at the bottom of the
hum and the water also after washing.
Th-; object of pouring the wafer into
the churn from a good elevation is to en-
ible it the more thoroughly to iiermeate
the butter globules and free them from the
In packing the butter, do so in such a
manner that the air can find no lodgment
between the different layers or about the
sides ol the package, and keep in a cool,
swift cellar until sold
If care' lie taken that the milking be
cleanly done, and that no foul odors come
n contact with the milk and cream there-
alter; if strict cleanliness be observed
with the various utensils employed ; and
equal care be taken that the butter be not
worked to such a degree as to render it
salvey ; and if those having the handling
of the article between the producer and
onsumer would take good careol it, there
would not be so much complaint about the
greasy, odorous, often loathsome article
miscalled butter that too often finds its
way to otherwise respectable tables.
v hue it is true that really hrst-class
butter cannot be made without especial
attention to temperature, etc., which all
cannot, have, it is equally true that all

Pik-Plaxt Pies. Never stew your pie
plant Detore making your pies, feel the
steins of rhubarb and slice them in half-
inch lengths, holding several stems in the
hand at one time. WiUi these fill the pie,
sweetening it generously about the same
as for a lemon pie, a small teacupful of su
gar for a medium-sized pie moisten with
a great spoonful of water, dust over this
little dry flour, to thicken the juice a little,
cover it with the upper crust and bake it
slowly and thoroughly, nueh a pie is too
rich tor some stomachs and there is a way
ol dispensing with part ol the sugar, with
out having the pie too sour. Not be the
use ol soda. No, indeed ! But pour boil
ing water over your sliced rnuD.iro, letting
it stand ten or fifteen minutes. Pour this
oil and make your pies of the rhubarb,
with less sugiir. It you stew pie-plant tor
sauce, vou can iour on a part ot the juice
before it is done, using it to make jelly, if
you like, and supply its place with more
water, thus economizing sugar.

Prehistoric People of America.
The lowlands of the Mississippi consti
tute a terra incognita. No one man has
traversed more than the narrow district
about his own home. Great trees, 200 and
even 300 feet high, and endless canebrakes
and broad, deep laqunes render locomotion
in the lowlands most dithcult, and to the
unacclimated dangerous. In tfie very
midst of the continent there lies this broac
rich incalculably rich alluvial plain, fifty
by 1,200 miles in area, trom Cairo to the
sea. Everywhere within this matchless
agricultural region matchless in produc
tiveness as once m its density ot popula
tion there ait wonderful remains of
mound-buildeiv toil and peculiar civiliza
tion. Thereare great, mounds everywhere
and paved lakes (aquadasi, nuometers,
canals, remains of great brick structures
and ot bridges, and yet tne American
scholar or iournalist or scientific associa
tion has ever sought to explore the mys
teries or tell ttie story of the mound-builders
of the lowlands. Kecentlv L. J. Du-
pre. of Memphis, who has devoted leisure
hours through twenty vears past to the in
vestigations oi me cnarucier luuictueo, iias
made publications attracting to the archajo-
ogical remains of the valley ol the Mis
sissippi a large share of popular attention.
The Smithsonian Institution manifests
keen interest in the subject, and measures
may be adopted and means furnished by
which Mr. lupre and his acclimated asso
ciates will make more useful and astonish
ing discoveries than have rendered the
name and deeds of Livingstone memorable.

Train Wreckers Frustrated by a Boy.
The Chicago and Rock Island train nar
rowly escaped being wrecked last Wednes-
;iy. A gang ot workmen going out to
repair the road p.issed through Iowa City.
A little boy in the party, a son of one of
the gangmen, was taken suddenly with
the ague, and requested to be left at a
frtaml'a hrktlf in tll cttv 4 .oftinrr hj.tt.tr
the little fellow undertook to wal out to
where the men were working, and crawled
the shade of a fence to rest. While
lying there he was attracted by the con-
ersation of two men who were walk
ing the ties in the same direction he was
going. Uetore tney got up to him they
stopped and commencea operations on the
rails. They tore up the rails and fastened
log across the track. They were pres
ently joined by a third party, and, after
completing' arrangements, they retired.
Half scared to death, the boy crept nearly
half a mile next to the fence, and, running
into the city, gave the alarm. The train
was detained in the city, a squad sent out
to repair the track, and another squad sent
out to find the perpetrators. A clue is
had to their whereabouts, and they will
soon be captured. A handsome subsci ip-ti'-n
was made by the passengers for the
lnsve lad who saved the train and so many
lives. Omaha Herald, June 12.

Choosing a Career. .
One sharp lesson of the autumn's panic,
and, indeed, of our shifting American for
tunes without any panic at all. Is the waste
ful folly and cruelty of the old education
of woman. It is folly, in an economic
sense, that Ignores the sharp possibilities
of the future for our girls while we send
our boys out into life fully armed and
equipped for the fray.
The young man. returned from college
or the scientific school, in the bright glow
of dawning powers, untrammehtl as yet
by care, and under the shelter of his fath
er's roof, decides upon his career. Admir
ing aunts and sisters waft their prayers
and hopes upon the winds that wing hi
sail; the lather s experience ana counsel
pilot the boat through the shallow waters
near the shore. Everything aids his start
youth, freshness, and special framing.
He has no responsibility upon him save
for his own health and good behavior.
When does a woman choose her career?
In middle age; broken down by sorrow;
when she has seen her life's holies go down
oue by one in the horizon. As a girl, she
has waited in her father's house for the
lover who never came. All of vouth has
gone by In vague dreams. In the frivol
ous business of fashionable society her
strength has spent itself.
Her hands are skill-less save in delicate
embroidery ; her brain is sluggish, though
it aches with this new anxiety and despair.
Heavily weighted, with responsibility, it
may be, with, the broken-down father or
the aiways invalid mother now suddenly
dependent upon her, she sets out upon
this new path with weak, uncertain step.-.
Beginning a career at forty, all uutraiued !
The daughter of her washerwoman can
distance her ; the girl who used to bring
home her shoes has already shot tar ahead.
8he scarce used to notice these girls, save
when they were thinly clad or looked
hungrier than usual, ft was easy to loos
en her purse-strings or send them into the
servants' room to be warmed and fed.
Where are they now, while she is halting.
timorous, on the sharp stones of the high
way ? The washerwoman's girl is a salar
ied" teacher in the model school-house yon
der: the other is book-keeper in her fath
er shop, and it pays her well.
Ah 1 that artisan father, that mother
toiling early and late, had a deeper wis
dom in their need than the merchant, the
clergyman, the railway king, in his hour
of power. What cruelty like to their
indulgence now! The unreasoning fond
ness which reared their girls in luxurious
helplessness, which assumed the future as
certain in its goldi n round, lias its parallel
in other lands. There are Asiatic fathers
who put out ttie eyes of a girl th: she
in.iy be a more pathetic beggar. To the
study of this Chinese prototype we com
mend the American father who, choosing
a career for his boys in the fine freshnes
of early manhood, leaves his darling
daughters helpless amidst the buffets ol
the changing tide. July Harper s.
W hat of JiellleJ
Some papers seem to think there is no
chance of Queen Victoria taking any
official notice of the recent event iu the
life of Sartoris, and that there is no proba
bility of his being knighted, or otherwise
honored for his success in forming an al
Iiance with the American Grants. They
hae evidently forgotten the fact that Her
Majesty paid official attention to Miss
Nellie, while visiting England two
i arks ot
ago, and bestowed upon tier m
royal favor not to be spoken of without
feeling akin to awe. We would also re
call to their minds a rather remarkable
fact, which was copied into our columns
two years ago, from the London corres
pondent (July 2, 1872) of a Manchester
(England) paper. This correspondent said
that w hen Miss Nellie Grant, the daugh
ter of the American President, made her
vi-it to the House of Lords, the covers
which conceal the throne and royal chairs
of state were removed in honor of the
event. The correspondent took occasion
to remark that this was a compliment
never before paid except to a royal visit
or. During the sessions of the Lords the
throne and its environments are always
kept closely covered, except when bills re
ceive the royal assent by commission.
Now, it must be admitted that such Inci
dents as these certainly show the desire ot
Queen Victoria to f'gnalize and honor the
President's daughter. She is now, it is
true, the wife of an English commoner;
but since she has become a subject of Her
Majesty, we may fairly assume that the
earliest opportunity will be taken advan
tage ot to entitle her to stand before the
world as Lady Sartoris.
Agro Dragged to Sea by a Shark.
The Galveston News says : A colored
man named James Ellis, or Elias, tells a
wonderful story about the narrow escape
of a companion who accompanied him out
upon the beach last Wednesday morning
to fish. The two men it seems have been
in the habit of fishing every morning, at
an early hour, and always go amply pre-1
pared with books and lines adapted tor the
capture of members of the tinny tribe ot
all sizes. On the moruing specified above, I

heard Wash shouting : "I've got him ! I've
got him I '
" What have vou ketched r' aked Ellis.
M. IlV,.- A' sj t II 11CI1V V IUIm.-
As Wash made this answer Ellis noticed
that he was being dragged forward into
the gulf, and starred to render assistance.
In the meantime v ash was being dragged
rapidly out to sea, at times struggling with
all his might ou his feet,and at other times
submerged beneath tne waves, it was
then that Ellis fully realized the peril ol
his companion.having remembered his hab
it of tying the line about his arm jvliile
It was an awlul moment. With all ii is
efforts, Ellis found that it would be impos
sible to reach the struggling man. Al
ready he had passed the first bar; a few
moments more nd he would be in deep
water, and not beiug able to swim, even
if he succeeded in releasing himself from
the line, he must certainly perish. Sud
denly, however, he was noticed to stop,
and. standing upon his feet, raised both
hands above the waves.
44 Wash," shouted Ellis, rushing forward,
has you done got loose?"
" Yes." was the reply, "but. Lord bless
you. it was atightsqueeze.stiureenough."
" hat was it t ' asked .kins.
AVash replied that when he first fastened
on to it he thought it was a big red fish or
gar, but a few jerks convinced him that it
was either a whale or a shark, most prooa
bly the latter. At one time after crossing
the bar he saw it leap out of the water .ami
it appeared to be about ten ftt't long, as
near as he could calculate. I he probabu-
ty is that Wash will hold his line in his
hand the next time he goes out to fish.
A llafflcd Uarber.
A traveling friend of the Observer was at
Rochester the other day, and he dropped
into a barber-shop near the Osburn House
to gel shaved. After he had been deprived
of the useless hairs upon his lace, and a
portion of hi ' dtin, by a garrulous, clumsy
knight ot tho razor, the tonsonal artist
tossed the ends of his hair lightly, and the
following dialogue ensued :
uaroer nave a cut? victim .o. it
was cut last week, and I'm In a hurry.
Artist (looking at the clock) You have
plenty of time before the train goes East.
Victim I'm not going East! Barber
Oh, then yon are in no hurry ! n.id your

Barber (still toying with onr friend's wav-
ng locks)- Which way are you going'?

You can't get your hair cut decently in
Buffalo. There is only one good barber
there and he's drunk half the time ! Shall

Look here, yon wooden-headed numskull,
and listen. I don't want mv hair cut ! I

crowded thoroughfare. Don Piatt. I
The Moors, unlikn the Othello vt our
childish fancy, are simply Arab wh live
in towns and have intermarried with other
races. They have the same straight fea
tures, oval faces, and clear brown skins,
only a good deal fairer than the nomad
Arab. But their dress is different. They
wear a turban or piece of white muslin
wound round a little red snashea, or sknll
cap, a jacket of bright-colored cloth, and
two waistcoats, iichly embroidered, full
trousers, bare leg and large, loose shoes.
The dress of their women out-of-door Is
the haik of their Arab sisters; but in
doors they wear a gauze chemise, with
shot t sleeves, wide trousers, bare legs, and
yellow babouches, or slippers. Their beau
tiful black hair is simply knotted behind
the head, while a little velvet thashea,
richly embroidered, is placed coquettishly
on one side. A kind of vest of the same
material is sometimes added to define the
shape; and all have beautiful jewels, fine
pearls, emeralds or sapphires, wretchedly
set, and often pierced through the middle
or strung on pack-thn ad ; but still genu
ine precious srones. No Arab wdl wear a
false stone, and for that reason they prefer
that thev should not match. as thev always
suspect the regularity of onr Enp-lish lew-
els. As to their position with reward to
the other sex, it is no better than that o
the Arabs. They are utterly uneducated,
and the rich and those of high rank never
leave their own houses. . W e went to see
one of them, the Princess : who had
a little girl of five who was fiancee to a lit
tle boy-cousin of six, the most snlkv im
personation I ever saw of a small Moor.
This lady told us that formerly she had
been allowed by her husband to go on the
terrace of the bouse, but that now it had
been glazed over. She had never seen any
of her own relations since she was a little
child, and never went beyond those four
walls. If the parents are poor, the advent
of a girl is looked upon as a positive mis
fortune by both Arabs and Moors. When
a boy comes into the world, the wife is
presented with a beautiful circular brooch
to fasten her haik ; but blows and a curse
are her only reward for producing one ot
the other sex. Madame Luce anilthe Sis
ters of Charity are striving to raise these
poor little things from this miserable posi
tion, and. by teaching them needlework
and embroidery, to enable them to get sit
uations in better-class houses. One of
these children was a servant in the prin
cess's household which 1 have just men
tioned, and a more faultlessly beautiful
face I never saw, with sort, almond-shaped
eyes and the most winning smile. But,
alas! for her, poor, child, should her mas
ter cast his eves upon her beauty ! Lady
