better, but when I put him on the road
he grew worse, when f discovered that a

Spavin Cure and AVith less than a bottle
.cured him so that he is not lame, neither can
the bunch betound. Respectfully yours.

A LONG ISLAXI) HEATHEN
Who Knoivs More About Clnins Than He
Does About Uod.
New York Star.
In the recent discovery on Long Island
of a community of heathen, the
boasted civilization of the nineteenth century
has received" a severe shock. Eight
under the nose of the Foreign Missionary
society paganism rears its horrid seven-story
A man from the Seventh ward, New
York, was over on the island Just week,
and while leaning on a
one of the elderly and most respectable of
the down-east heathen. When the old
animated mummy faced to in his starboard
tack to windward the Seventh ward
man accosted him.
11 Why don't you have some churches in
;' What's them ?
' Places to worship God in."
"God!" This with a profane accent,
which suggested that the old duffer had
heard the word before.
44 Yes, God. Didn't you ever hear of
" Well, I've heard the clam-diggers use
the word when the tide was up, and some
times the fishermen when they made a
" What do you suppose God is ?"
" Suppose ! I don't suppose nothing at
all about it, 'cause I don't know nothing
at all about it. Do you ?"
The Seventh ward man took his pipe
out of his mouth and spat on the shinglv
"How old are you?"
" Going on seventy-two."
"Support a family?"
" Two on 'em my own and my son-in-law's."
" Have you a Bible in the house?"
" Is it something like a gill-net ?"
" No; the word of God written by the
twelve apostles. Ever hear about Peter
the Great ?"
"One of the apostles; drove Adam' and
Eve out of the garden of Eden with a
sword, and afterward caught a colored
man named Pontius Pilate and slit his

" Whose number?"
" Didn't have any number. What do
you mean by that?"
"All the pilots on this coast have a number.
Thought perhaps I" might know
"Don't you have any schools here ?"
"Had a kind of school here last chowder
season, but, the teacher was too will
"Oh, some of the blue-fishers asked him
if he taught that the world was round or
squitre, and he said seem' as how he was

it teached. Said it was immaterial."
" Never have any Sunday school?"
" Dig clams on the Sabbath ?"
"If the tide's down."
"What would you do if they should
send some preachers over here?'''
14 Sell 'em some clams."
"What would you do if a missionary
should come over from Brooklyn and build
a nice big house to preach in ?"
44 Dry codfish in it."
44 Did you ever hear of hell ?"
44 Only when Captain Skidmoro talks of
"Where do you expect to go to when
44 Go to pieces."
44 Well, all I've got to say, old man, is
that we propose to send over some
and evangelical fertilizers from New
York, and "
" From New York?" murmured the old
44 Yes) from New York."
: ThVold man mofved'a few paces down
the road. Then he paused and looked
again at the Seventh ward man attentively.
44 From New York ?" This in a surprised
and querulous tone.
" Whv, yes. What is it vou are driving
44 Ha! ha! Shepherd's fold. Starving
widows and children, he, he ! Boss Kelly,
crime blood and corruption. Evangelical
fertilizers ! ho, ho! and all from New York!
It makes me tired," and with several weird
sepulchral chuckles the old heathen ambled
up the white and clam-shelled road.
The City of Aloxnudrli.
Previous to the political disturbances
which caused a general exodus of Europeans
from Egypt and led up to the bombardment
and practical destruction of
Alexandria, the city had a population of
about 215,000 inhabitants, nearlv 50,000 of
The city lies on the Mediterranean, near
the mouth of the westernmost arm of the
delta of the Nile, and occupies a peninsula,
anciently the island of Pharos, and the
neck of land connecting it with the mainland.
On each side of the isthmus is a good
harbor, that on the west being mainly
artificial. Its excellent. position for trade
made it the chief commercial city of Egypt
and the great central station for passengers
east and west, the steamers to and from
India, the Levant, and Western ports all
stopping there. It is connected with
Mansoora and the Suez Canal by railroad,
and with Cairo by rail, canal, "and river.
In its newer portion Alexandria had the
appearance of a European city. It was
lighted with gas and supplied with water
from the Nile. Besides its large export
and import trade the city was the seat of
large government and private manufactures
run by steam. It had many fine
residences. Among the prominent buildings
were the palace of the Khedive at
Ras-el-Tin, the large naval arsenal, the
naval and military hospitals, the Custom
House, Tribunal of Commerce, Italian
College, and the various schools.
Alexandria was founded by Alexander
the Great in 332 B. C. Under his
the Ptolemies, the city contained 300,
000 free inhabitants and as many slaves.
It became the center of learning, and
schools of Grecian philosophy flourished
there. Magnificent monuments were erected,
among them the Pharos, the Museum,
and the Temple of Serapis, and there were
many georgous palaces and public buildings.
Julius Ctesar beseiged and took the city
in 48 B. C, and eighteen years later Augustus
made it an imperial city. It now
began a new season of prosperity, continuing
till the establishment of the seat of
empire at Constantinople. The Catacombs,
public baths, and Pompey's pillar,
with the Roman city wall were erected
during this period. In the year 215 the
Romau Emperor Caracal la visited the city
and ordered a general massacre, and under
the rule of Gallicnus a famine swept
off half of the population. In 273 an in
surrection resulted in the destruction' of
the great library of the museum. In 20G
another revolt ended in a general slaughter,
and in 3G5 an earthquake destroyed
50,000 persons. The Persians captured the
city in GIG, and yielded it to the Arabs in
641. It then contained 400 palaces, 00
theaters, 4,000 public baths, and 12,0u0
From this time on it rapidlv decayed,
and its population and trade diminished.
Cairo took its place as the chief city ot
Fygpt. It finally sank so low that in 1777
its population was only 0,000.
The greatest devourers of novels in
England are factory workers, who fly to
them from the dull, ugly routine- cf
their daily toil, and person's of leisure, ci
moderate means, who cannot afford socic
ty, travel, theaters, fcc. Such persona
abound ip English watering places.
