Amusements in the Home.
Sunday School Times.
Amusements may be, and ought to
be.such as will aid in developing and
upbuilding a child's manliness and
womanliness. Again, they may be
such as will prove an injury to the
taste and character of the child
Even the simplest forms of amuse
ment may have in them the one or
the other of these tendencies. A
child's earlier playthings and games
may have much to do with educat
ing and training his eye and ear and
hand and voice and bodily move
ments. They ought all to be watch
ed and shaped accordingly. This one
is a fundamental one in the Kinder
garten system; and a study of the
methods of that system may be of
service to a parent who would learn
how to guide a child in his amuse
ments in this direction.
Peculiarly is it Important that a
child's amusements should not have
in them any element of chance, as
tending to give him the Idea that his
attainments or progress in life will
depend in any measure upon "luck."
From his play with building-blocks
or with jack-straws, up to his games
of ball or of chess, every movement
that a child is called on to make in
the sphere of his amusements", ought
to be one in which his success or his
failure is dependent on his skill or
his lack of it. A child may be harm
ed for life by the conviction that his
hope f success in the world rests on
that "streak of luck" which seemed
to be his in the games of chance he
played in boyhood. And a child
may be helped for life by the charac
ter which was developed in him in
his boyhood's games of skill. It was
an illustration of this principlo when
the Duke of Wellington pointed to
the play-ground of Eton, and said,
"It was there that the battle of Wa
terloo was won."
This is a volcanic product, and is
obtained principally from Campo
niani'o, one of the Lipari Islands,
which is entirely composed of this
substance. It is extensively employ
ed in various branches of the arts.and
particularly in the state of powder,
for polishing the various articles of
cut glass; it is extensively used in
dressing leather, in grinding and
polishing thesurfaceof metalic plates,
etc. i'umice stone is ground or
crushed under a runner and sifted,
in this state is used for brass and
other metal work, and also for ja
panned, varnished and painted
goods, lor which latter purpose it is
generally applied on woolen cloths
with water. Putty powder is the
pulverized oxide of tin, or generally
of tin and lead mixed in various pro
The process of manufacture is alike
in all cases. The metal is oxidized
in an iron mullle, or a rectangular
box closed on all sizes except a square
hole in the front side. The retort is
surrounded by fire and kept at a red
heat, so that its contents are partially
ignited, and they are continually
stirred, to expose fresh portions to
the heated air. The process is com
plete when the fluid metal eutirely
disappears, and the upper part of the
oxide then produces sparkles some
what like particles of incandescent
charcoal. The oxide is then remov
ed with ladles, and spread over the
bottom of large iron cooling pans and
allowed to cool. The lumps of oxide,
which are as hard as marble, are then
selected from the mass and ground
dry under the runner; the putty pow
der is afterward carefully sifted
Are predicted with reliable accuracy
and people liable to the pains and
aches of rheumatism dread every
change to damp or stormy weather,
Although Hood's Sarsaparilla is not
claimed to be a positive specific for
rheumatism, the remarkable cures it
has effected show that it may be taken
for this complaint with reasonable
certainty of benefit. Its action in
neutralizing the acidity of the blood
which is the cause of rheumatism
constitutes the success of Hood's Sar
saparilla. If you suffer from rheuma
tism, give Hood's Sarsaparilla a fair
trial ; it will do you good.

Good Results of the Farmers' Alli
W. Gladden in the Forum.
How long the farmers will hold to
gether In their alliances is difficult to
predict. It may be that the discus
sions in which they must take part
will show them that some of the
measures of direct relief on which
they are chiefly depending are im
practicable; and it Is conceivable
that this discovery will tend to de
moralize them. That they can be
come a permanent political force is
not likely,for parties which represent
only classes cannot live in a republic.
But several results, by no means un
desirable, may be looked for as the
outcome of this farmers' uprising.
1. They will secure a thorough dis
cussion of some important economi
cal questions. They will force the
people to consider carefully the pro
blem of the State ownership of the
great public highways. If the farm
ers can stick together, and stick to
their text long enough to get this
business thoroughly ventilated, they
will do a good service.
2. They are loosening the bauds of
partisanship, and opening the way
for a rational co-operation ot citizens
for all desirable purposes. It is not
mprobable that it will lead to a re
construction of parties.
3. They are helping to make an
end ot the sectionalism, which has
been a large part of the capital of a
certain class of politicians. "Scarce-
y a vestige," they say, "of the old
sectional prejudice of a few years ago
s now visible within their ranks."
The South and the West are coming
nto fraternal relations. "The dema
gogue politician who now attempts
to array sectional prejudice in order
that he may keep farmers equally
divided on important questions," is
admonished that he is about to con
front "a superior intelligence that
will soon convince him that his occu
pation is gone." The farmers' move
ment is not, probably, the deluge,
but it will prove to be something of a
shower in some quarters, a cyclone
and it will clear the atmosphere.
It takes an extra good farm and
extra good farming to yield six per
cent' on the capital invested. Con
sider this before you borrow money
to buy more land.

An Evil Which It at Had la the Uoltea
Statet at It It In England.
An auditor unused to stage language
and ways, and coming to the theater
straight from the street, the exchange,
the county, the mess or the drawing
room, wherever, In short, men and wom
en congregate, could hardly fail to be
struck by a certain falseness, a cortaln
overemphasis, and especially a certain
long-drawn exaggeration of the pathetic
tones. He would think it grotesque,
and he would probably think it unpleas
ant. It is a note not to be hoard in daily
life, for wo are an undemonstrative poo
pie by nature, and pride ourselves on
getting through the crisis of our lives
in dumb show, with no more than a
word or two. This impassive attitude,
some think, is one of the best things
about us. I am myself inclined to be
lieve, aftor certain recent personal ex
periences of more vociferous mothods,
that the very demonstrative nations
spend more energy than we do in prom
ise, and perhaps retain less of perform
ance. On the stage, however, and chiefly on
the melodramatic stago, wo have
changed all this. Our men weep, our
womon whine; it may be sentimental,
which is quite another thing from pa
thetic, but it is a singularly long way
removed from our English way of taking
the facts ot existence.
In the course ot the past summer the
prosont writer was listening to one ot
the most popular plays of the
season. Two young ladies of pleas
ing exterior, very competent players,
had taken the stago. One was recount
ing her misfortunes to theother. "Now,"
I thought, "was ever any thing more un
like to the behavior of any sane English
women than that of these young
actresses the tearful faces, the spas
modic gestures, the long-drawn, woful
utterance and the various traditional
stago tricks of speech and manners?"
And I reflected that the young ladies
themselves woro not responsible for
their doparturo from nature, but the
fashion of the times, which calls for
sucli divagations. At this moment a
stranger, sitting at my side could bear
It no longer; bo moved impatiently in
his seat and expressed his indignation
in a whispored comment in my ear: "I
beg your pardon, sir, but what two con
founded idiots." I imagine this gentle
man, whoso speech was educated and his
faco intelligent, may have lived long
enough awayjfrom London melodrama
land to havo forgotten that it is a region
where a dialect of its own prevails, ac
companied by contortions of the face
and body, rollings of the eyes, emotional
gurglings, hisses and huskiness, which
never accompany tho speech of tho
English men and women in tho world

Itenlly Valuable SiiBRPittiona Concerning
Mrs. Edmund Russell, tho exponent
of tho Delsarto system, in a lecture on
dress, gives some valuable hints in re
gard to woman's costume:
"For a woman of light physique, deli
cato coloring, vitality, energy and move
ment, any draping, clinging material
soft wool or lustrous silk has a peculiar
adaptation. Reposo is an idea insep
arable from size, let tho stout woman's
dress create that feeling material that
will fall in the rich heavy folds, un
broken lines, deep, soft color and she
is at her best. Tho tight fitting black
silk or satin, her usual grand costumo,
is a great mistake. .Tho lights reflected
from a brilliant surface reveal tho form;
revealed form is vulgar, suggested form
"A tall, angular woman wants some
thing light and floating a material that
will follow every movement, multiply
ing linos and obliterating anglos. Proper
radiation of lines has every thing to do
with tho graco and expression of a gown.
Tho shoulders and hips aro natural
points of support. Let tho drapery fall
from these, and tho result is a series ol
long, curving radiations that givo life
and beauty. With every cliango of po
sition thero is a new series of lines, all
freo to follow the swing and sway oi

ings aro stiff and meaningless; they break

Don't Ituy Hijrh-IleeUiil Foot-Wear, Jio
Matter How Nice It Look.
It is a great mistako to buy cheap
shoes for children. Such shoes aro
either made of inferior leather and by
workmen who do not understand their
business, or they aro heavy shoes, sowed
by machine. In one caso they will not
wear one-third as long as good shoes
that cost twice as much; in tho other
they will be so hard and unyielding to
the tender feet of the growing child that
they will certainly produce corns and
other afflictions of tho feet that it may
be impossible to cure. Tho shoes mado
by the village cobbler may not bo so
handsome as tho stock shoes in tho vil
lago store, but they are usually more
comfortable and more durable. No child
should wear a shoo with heels. The
spring-heel shoe gives all tho elevation
necessary till the child is fully grown.
Many English women who aro expert
pedestrians always wear a spring-heel
shoo in long walks. The folly and
wrong of putting a high-heeled, narrow-
toed shoe on a school-girl need not bo
commented upon. There are several
diseases of tho spine which arc traced
directly by physicians to m i Ii folly.

Thousands of dollars worth ol
chickens are destroyed by Cholera
every year. It is more fatal to them
than all other diseases combined.
But the discovery of a liquid remedy
that positively destroys the Microbes
has been made. Half of the young
chickens are killed by Microbes
before they are fryers. A 50-cent
bottle is enough for 100 chickens.
It is guaranteed. If, after using
two-thirds of a bottle you are not
satisfied with it as a cure for Chol
era, return it to the druggist from
whom you purchased it, and he will
refund your money.
