R MIE IN MEXICO.
Our Slater Republic OITfcrs Special Adrant
age for It* '? ultlvatlon.
In a rocont voport by tho United States
Soorotary of Location at Moxico it is
stated tbat Mexico offers special ad?
vantages for tho successful cultivation I
of tho rarnio plant Tho Stato of Vora
Cruz is admirably adapted?from its fro- ;
quent rains and facilities of irrigation
in tho zono which oxtonds from Jalapa
to Tuxtupoc, passing through Cordoba?
to tho cultivation of ramio; and, in ad?
dition, tho railways penetrating thoso
districts offor ready moans of transporta?
tion to marlcot. Aftor its socond year
tho plant can, as it doos in Vonozuola,
yiold four, fivo and even six cuttings a
year, both whito and greon ramio can
bo cultivated in Moxico, but tho whito
is preforrcd, as it is vory robust and
yiolds a superior fiber to tho groon.
ramio. White ramie comes from China.
Tho leaf undornoath is whito, veinod
with groon, and tho leavos and stems
aro very hardy. Owing to this hardi?
ness tho plant will grow in almost any
climato, but, nevertheless, has a prodi
loction for a sandy, light soil, with a
woll-draincd undersoil, as tho roots rot in
swampy ground. Soil impregnated with
saltpotor Is also prejudicial toitsdovolop
ment. In ordor that tho stems may grow
straight and narrow, without lateral
branohos, it is necossary that tho plants
should bo crowded togothor. having a
Space of not more than a half a yard be?
tween oach; tho stems will then givo a
much superior fihor. Aftor tho second
year weeding is no longer nocossary, ns
the multiplicity of roots doos not allow
tlio growth of any parasite. Once
started, tho plants will last for years
without being ronowod. It is stated
that the plants will livo for more than
fifty years, but to obtain this result an
annual manuring is indispensable. In
spito of the assertion of somo cultivators
that the fallen leavos.suffice to mnnure
tho land, experience shows that tho host
results are obtained by using manuro
Again, the leaves may bo used for mak?
ing papor, as is done in China. The cul?
tivation of ramie requires but a small
outlay and very slight "labor, and, as tho
harvests are numerous when onco tho
plants aro fairly started tho return is
prompt. It is cxpectod that weaving
and spinning mills will bo established
in Mexico for making uso of the fibre,
but it is thought tho richness of the
soil will provo such that tho production
of raw material will far exceed thoir
capacity of consumption, and that Eu?
rope will tako any such superfluity, in
preferenco ovon to honncquin. Mr.
Whitohouso states that nono of tho ma
chinos at present in use for decortica
tion givo satisfactory rosults; all are too
expensive, and none do sufllciont work.

IT HAS A HISTORY.
Interesting Account of a Hell Taken from
ii Submerged Ship.
When you visit tho room of the
Natural History Socioty on lloylston
street ask tho custodian to point out to
you a ship's boll which rests upon one
of tho shelvos. This bell has a history
attached to it. About the year 1850" or
1857 a firm in this city sent out an ex?
pedition under the charge of Mr. Whip
pie, tho noted sub-marine diver of the
day, fully equippod with armors and
divers, to explore tho banks of tho Gulf
'? )f Moxico for submerged articlos of
value. The expedition returned in due
limo from a successful trip, tho vessel
'i loaded with kcntlodgo chains and an?
chors. Among the many crafts discov?
ered and explored was a british frigate.
From this was taken tho ship's boll,
stamped with tho broad arrow; also,
from tho hull, several sheets of copper ?
itampod with the initials of tho dock?
yard in which the frigate was coppered, 1
tndalso tho year of its application. A
itatomont of those facts, with a sheet
Df tho copper, was sent to the lato
Llooigo Sum nor, who was thou in Lon
: Ion. He placed them before his friend,
tho Marl of Clarendon, who was then
sonncctcd with the british Admiralty.
On examining the records of tho dock
yards, it was ascertained that two
I frigates wore coppored the year of the
I stamp, and were sent on their way to
j join tho Hoot about to attack New Or?
leans at tho timo of its successful do
! fense by General Jackson. They woro
I never heard of after leaving their moor
I ings. Ono of thoso was tho frigate dis
' covered by Mr. Whipple. In this acci
| dental way was communicated to tho
Government and friends of tho ollicors
I and crew intelligence of the fate of tho
ship. Perhaps a second Whipple may
discover the resting place of the United
I States sloop-of-war Albany, which dis
; appeared in tho same waters, carrying
1 to tho bottom, among other noblo souls,
Lieutenant John Quincy Adams, grand?
son of tho President of that name, who,
if he bad lived ton years longer, would
hare added lustre to bis patriotio name
and family. A more accomplished and
gallant offices than Lieutenant Adams
! no vor trod tho quarter-deck. The bell
j is overhung with a massive canopy of
coral, which is considered of great
scientific value as showing tho growth
of coral in a definite number of years.?

A ratnrully Ilellnoil Woman.
In a suburban town thoro is a tole
phono in tho house of a gentleman
whose wife is fastidiously roll nod. Sho
frequently has occasion to use tho in?
strument, but, as might bo expected,
even a toiophonic association with low
and unrefined peoplo deeply harrows
the good lady's soul. She declares that
. sho frequently detects the odor of liquor
j and tobacco when doing hor marketing
i or communicating with tho livery stable
j over tho telephono. Iior last move is
. probably.unique in the history of the
i telephone. Tho othor morning sho drove
j to her butcher's and told that individual
that whenever ho or his assistants
j spoko to her through tho telephono
they must wash their hands and put on
a coat. "It Is highty indelicate,"
she said, "for you to spoak to a lady
with unclean hands and in your shirt
slooves, and unloss you cease doing so 1
shall have to trade with the otuor
butcher person." That lady ought to
livo under a glass caso, on some lonely
mountain peak, far away from mankind.
This work-a-day world is not the place
for her.?N. Y. Tribune

Other materials suitable for tailor

noteworthy feature of many of the now

striped and plaided goods appear on tho

aro invariably accompanied by plain
goods to match them in color. Tho
fancy goods i.s tobe used sparingly with
the plain. In most cases it is confined
to tho front of the dress, the sleeves,
collar, and some simple garniture of tho
bodice, tbo remainder of the dress be?
ing mado of the plain material. In
many dresses tho skirt is mado en?
tirely of the plain goods, and tho
figured or plaided fabric is used only for
the. sleeves, tho pointed girdle and tho
flaring collar. Thus a natural-colored
camol's-hair cloth of oxquisitoly silken

PROfTt IN HYPNOTISM.

remarked Mrs. Larkin. "She's had ono

'?Yes," assented Lark In.
"And sho used to wear the shabbiest
bonnets imaginable, and make them
over till they were a sight to sec."
"Ah," said her husband.
"And she always has plenty of money
now. I've known that woman to go
through her husband's pockets at night,
to get a few cents pin money. Now she
seems to have all she wants. How do
yon account for it? Has Mr. Hunting
had money loft him?"
"No," repliod Larkin; "it's hypnot?
"Hypnotism?"oxclaimod Mrs. Larkin.
"Yes; she's got him hypnotized. She
discovered a few weeks ago that sho
could hypnotize him, and he consented
to lot her experiment. After sho had
made him do a number of foolish tricks,
she remembered that hypnoti/.ers can
project a suggestion into future time.
That is, they can toll the subject, while
tho lattor is in the hypnotic state, to do
something at a certain tinio to-morrow
or noxt day, and slit1 resolved to try that
on Hunting, too. So she said, 'Now,
Mr. Hunting, evory time you tako a
glass of whisky you must bring mo a
live-dollar bill, and evory tinio you buy
a quarter cigar you must como right
homo and hand me a dollar.' Tho poor
follow has boon doing it over since. As
soon as he takes a drink of whisky ho Is
compelled to go right homo antl give his
wife 11 \o dollars, lie can't help it, and
after he has done so he forgets all about
it. Tho same way with his quarter
cigars. Every ono costs him $1.25, He
wonders what becomes of his money,
hut can't for the life of him remember.
I foar ho is on the verge of bankruptcy,
and will soon go under if tho old lady
doesn't take off the spell."
Mrs. Larkin was very thoughtful for
somo time- after this, and next day she
went about among her friends trying to
find somo one who could loach her
