The absence of mind incidental to nerv
ousness orlright was nicely illustrated the
other night, when a kerosene lamp ex
ploded in a barber shoo on Malott avenue.
The lamp was directly under a mirror, and
on its upward flight shatteivd it into frag
ments and set fire to the shop. The pro
prietor, in his haste, took up a peach box
and tilled it with water. It all leaked out.
He then took up a peck measure, and
pumped into it very energetically for some
time before discovering that it had no botr
torn. Mr. Wright, a preacher, rushed in
at this moment, and seizing a wood bucket
went to the hitching-post and attempted to
etraw water Irom it. Another well mean
ing person followed suit. Then a stranger,
rushed in and said : Why don't you
swab' it out?" Suiting the action to'the
words, he pulled down a curtain, and soon
extinguished the flames. The damage was
slight, but the fright was great enough for

The Impudence of a Reporter.
A Xew York correspondent tells this of
a Herald reporter :
One of the stupendously impudent was
sent not a great while ago to get an ac
count of a funeral of a prominent citizen
of Brooklyn. The main thing he wanted
was the address of the noted divine on the
occasion; knowing he could manage the
rest in the usual otewotvped manner.' The
funeral was latter than had been anticipa
ted, ar.d the reporter was in a hurrv.
While in the house of mourninz he ob
served in the officiating clergyman's pock
et a roll of MS. Believing it must be what
he wanted, he waited until the pastor
knelt down to pray. Then he gently ab
stracted the paper from the rear pocket of
the coat, ana, moving about gently, with
his handkerchief to his eyes, as if over
come by emotion, he beat a precipitate re
treat as soon as he had discovered mat ne
had got what he was in search of.
The preacher, after the prayer was over,
offered a few Introdnctory remarks, and
was about to read his written discourse,
when he found it had very mysteriously
disappeared. He was obliged to trust to
extemporization, and acquitted himself
but ill ; particularly as he had put down all
his good thoughts on paper. He could
not account for the strange vanishment
until, taking up the Herald the next morn
ing, he there read the discourse he did not
A Royal Romance.
Kensington House, once the roval resi
deuce, is near Holland House, where La
dy Sarah Iennox, a beautiful girl of fif
teen, was residing with her sister. The
Prince of Wales, soon to be George III
fell in love with her, and soon after his ac
cession and before his coronation as good
as aked her, in his awkward, stupid way,
to lc his queen. At a ball given in the
palace he took her cousin, l.dy Lucy
Mrangways, one side and asked her when
she meant to leave town. She replied that
she intended to stay for the coronation
He said that this would not take place at
present, for there would be no coronation
until there was a queen : anil added, " I
think your friend is the fittest person for
it. Tell her so for me." The next time
Lady Sarah was at court, the King led her
to a window and inquired, " Has your
friend told vouof my conversation with
her?' "les, sir," was the answer.
"And what do vou think of it?" " Noth
ing, sir." "Nothing conies from noth
ing," answered George frettishly, and
turned on his iieei.
1 he truth is, the snrl, was engaged in
a llirtation with the rather disreputable
Lord Xewbottle. She soon afterwards
went into the country, fell from her
horse, and fractured her leg, and had a
qinirrel with Lord Xewbottle'. - The King
was most assiduous in his inquiries after
her; and when she came back to Holland
House it was at least with a strong liking
tor George. It was observed also that
every tine morning he was wont to ride
along a qniet lane which skirted the
grounds of Holland nouse, and that Lady
Sarah was sure to be on the lawn, pictur
esquely dressed, and raking hay like an-
other Maud Muller. This courtship be
came the talk at court, and i ox was evi
dently confident that his sister-in-law was
to be Queen of England. The court, and
especially the personages of the blood roy
al, took alarm at the prospect that one of
rank interior to their own would he placed
above them. Lord Bute, the Prime Min
ister, sent a secret emissary to look out for
a queen among the princely families
of the continent. The report was
in favor of the ugly but rather
clever young princess Charlotte of
Mecklenburg-Strelitz. What means were
used to induce George to consent to aban

It is said the straw which broke the back
of his resolution was a sight of a neatly

blessings of iieace. But in the early sum

from her havmakihg and dreams of a
crown bv reports almost certainly authen

Mecklenburg princess ; and she took pen
in hand and wrote to Lady Susan about the
matter. " 1 shall take care," she writes,
" to show that I am not mortified to any

If he were tochange his mind again (which
can't be, though), and not give a very
very good reason for his conduct, I would
not have him." They met a week after,
when everybody knew that the Mecklen

George was naturally enough confused
and Lady Sarah, as she had promised, was
very cool and dignified.

The Man Who Was Satisfied with
We never knew more than one man who
was always satisfied with the weather at
all times and under all circumstances. It
was Chubb. In summer, when the ther
mometer bolted up among the nineties,
Chubb would come to the front door with
Wads of inspiration standing out all over
his red face, until his head looked like a
raspherrv.aiHl look at the skv andsav
"Splendid perfectly splendid! Xobl
weather for the poor, and the ice compa
nies, and the washerwomen ! 1 hey don t
shake up any such weather as this in Italy,
Gimme my umbrella. Harriet, while 1 sit
out yer on the steps and enjoy it." In the
winter, when the mercury would creep
down fifteen degrees below zero, and the
cold was severe enough to freeze the in
side of Vesuvius solid to the center of the
glolw, Chubb would sit on a fence and ex
claim, " By Jingo ! did you ever see such
weather as this? I like an atmosphere
that freezes up your very marrer. It helps
the coiU trade and keeps the snakes quiet,
Hon t talk of summer time tome, uiniinc
cold, and give ir to me stiff.''. When the
was a drouth, Chubb used to reet us in
the street and remark, " Xo rain yet, I see
magnificent, ain't ir? I want my weather
dry ; x want it with the dampness lett out,
Moisture breeds fever and ague, and wets
your clothes. If there's anything to de
pise, it's to carry an umbrella. Xo rain
for me, if you please." While it rained for
a week and swamped the country, Chubb
often dropiK'd in to see us and to observe
" I dunno how you feel about this ye
rain, but it alius seems to me that heaven
never drops no Messmgs but when we
have a long wet spell. It makes the corn
jump and cleans the sewers. 1 wouldn'

there to no rain. Put me on the Nile
and I'd die in a week. Soak me through
and through to the inside of niv under
shirt, and I feel as if life was bright and
beautiful, and sorrow nothing but non
sense." Chubb was always h.ippy m a
thunder-storm. " Put me" in a thunder
storm and let the lightning play round me

storm that'd tear the inside out of the con
tinent, than a thousand years of little
driblin', waterin'-pot showers. If I can't
have a rippin'and a roarin' storm 1 don't

his roof fixing a shingle, when a tornado
struck him, lifted hi in off. carried him a
quarter of a mile, and dashed him with
such terrible force against a fence that his
leg was broken. As they carried ' TnuT

Fresh me'.it during the summer months

very difficult to obtain. Clubs are some
times formed for this purpose, in this
country, anel for a time work quite suc

be so e.-enducted as to furnish both excel

To organize a club it requires sixteen
nie-mbers, each member furnishing a beef
from eiglite-en months to two years old.
We be-giu to fe ed our little beef in the fall
or early winter, to be butche-re-d the next
summer, so as to give time to thoroughly
fatte-n. We cast lots at the close of every
beef seasoii to regulate the time of killing
the next si-ason. This is deme by putting
sixteen tie:kets ill the hat, with numbers
running from one to sixteen. The time
of killing is re'gulated or tixid by the; num
ber you draw. In order to stimulate and
compel each member to furnish good be-ef,
we reepiire a ce-rtain per cent, of tallenv te
the meat, and affix a penalty fer failure,
and a re-ward for largest per cent, of tal
low. By this means we never fail to se

us. (that is, however, conventional,) to be
regulated by the club. With us the party

fails to make twelve and a half ier cent,
of tallow to the meat. As a reward we
give $10 to the member making the lurg

ing to see the interest taken by the mem
bers to excel and carry oft tl e premium,
to say nothing of the fine lie-e-f we get.
After the club is organized a suitable
me-iuUer in the center of the neigborhemd
is selected to do the butchering, anil divide
the be-ef into sixteen parts, giving t each
member the same; quantity and quality of

ed in the pole, upon which each mi'inbe-r's

morningv commencing the first Saturday
in May, suspending killing at times as it
suits us, anel renewing when we desire.
In a club of sixteen each niembeT will ge-t

Receipts for Matin? Dr. Sage's Ca
tarrh Remedy and Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discorerj.
Something over a year since, a periodical
issued in Berlin, Prussia, and laving claims
to a scientific character, published what was
represented as being the formulae or receipts
for making Pr. Sage'g Catarrh Remedy ai-.d
Dr. Pierce's (Golden Medical Discovery. The
peMile were left to infer that these had been
deducted from a careful chemical analysis of
the medicines, which are rapidly growing in
popular favor in that as well as in this and
most other civilized wuntrieR. The reeeipts
were evidently invented by those jealous of
tne reputation and large sale whie-n tuese
medicines are rapidly acquiring ana wno are
iiecuniarilv interested in endeavoring to check
their sale. So ridiculously preposterous are
those receipts that meelicines compouneleil ai-
r them could never nave gameti any reputa
tion or sale in anv country, for they would
be so caustic, poisonous, immediately and
positively injurious, as in every case to be
promptly conelemned by the people on the
first trial as miserable, dangerous and wicked
humbugs. Whereas, it is a well-known fact
that all my medicines enjoy the reputation,
honestly earnew. or being not onlv emcacious.
but perfeetlv mild, pleasant ami harmleso in
efl'ects. Notwithstanding, however, that the
bogus receipts were so ridiculously preios
tcrous as scarcely to have been believed by the
mot unscientitie, thoughtless and unsuspect
ing people, yet strange and increelible as it
may seem, a paper of high scientific preten
sions, published in this country, copied the
fictitious receipts from the German paper.
This they evidently did without a moment's
reflection, for that much consideration, given
by an intelligent mind, to the receipts anil the
properties and effects of the mixtures that
would result from sueh a compounding of
well-known caustic and poisonous chemicals
and drugs, would have conelemned them as
bogus fabrications, and the pretentious pul
bshers of the paper that originally inserted
them, as either knaves or fools. On my atten
tion being called to the matter, in order that
gome thoughtlesss and over-credulous people
might not be deceived and misled by seeing
such an announcement in a paper laying
claims to a scientific character, as well as to
clear myself of the imputation of being guilty
of perpetrating a wicked fraud upon the peo
nle. as such announcement, if uncontradicted.
would imply, I, as proprietor and manufac
turer oi tne aioresaiii eeieiiraieu menue-mr,
went before a magistrate and made oath to
the fact that the said receipts were utterly
false. Jly affidavit was sent to the publisher
of the paper into which the bogus receipts
had been copied, and in a subseipient issue an
celitorial notie-e was given of my denial. Hut,

leninae around and infest our large citie:
gaining a livelihood by perpetrating all kinds
of catch-penny frauds upon the credulous,
were there'tiv iriven the hint that, as mvmi'di-
e-inrs were universally popular, by advertis-
1112 for sale bogus ree;ents for making them

at their bait. One Frank M. Keeel, of 130
Kighth Htreet, Xew York, who publishes
"Love and Coortshin cards." a "tortune
Teller and Dream l?ook," "The Mysteries of
Love Making." "How to Woo and how to
Win." and various other swindle, semis his
dunes the following in rxe-hange fur t!ieir
stamps. It is copied from the papers alludcel
to and is as follows: " lorlr. :egc s ejatai rn

seven grains ef Camphor, ami two ami a half
jrams ot common talt. tne wlinie to ie color

a powerful caustic mixture, as unlike Dr.
Zaire's Catarrh Remedy (which is perfee-tly
unirritable, mild, semthmg and pleasant) a
lieht is from darknes. As a burnt e-hil
dreads the fire," if any have been so foolish as
to burn their noses sore with tins causu
compound, thinking that Ihey were using the
same as Pr. Sage's celebrated Catarrh Ui-me-elv,
thev will, it is to be hoped, profit by the
esson thereby taught them, and not be so
ready next time to bite at every catch-penny
advertismar etodire that swindlers niav
fer them. For Pr. Pierce's Gulden Medi
cal Discovery the bogus receipt read
'Take four drachms pun lied Honey, hiteen

Of the; ridiculous bogus formula I will sav
