Horace Greely on the Misery of Being
Amon? the many good things
which Horace Greely wrote for the
New York Ledger i3 tho following
vivid article on the misery of being
in debt :
To be hungry, ragged and penniless
is not pleasant; but this is nothing to
the horror of bankruptcy. All the
wealth of the Rothschilds would be a
poor recompense for a live-years'
.struggle, with the consciousness that
you had taken the money and prop
erty of trusting friends promising
to return or pay for it when required,
and .had betrayed their confidence
through insolvency. 4
I dwell on this point, for I Would
deter others from entering that place
of torment. Half the young men in
the country, with many old enough
to know better, would "go into busi
ness" that is, into debt to-morrow,
if they could. Most poor men are
so ignorant as to envy the merchant
of manufacturer whose life is an in
cessant struggle with pecuniary dif
ficulties, who is driven to constant
"shlpning," and who, from month to
month, barely evades that insolvency
which sooner or later overtakes most
men in business; so that it has been
computed that but one in twenty of
them achieves a pecuniary success.
For my part and I speak from
sad experience I would rather be a
convict in the State prison, a slave in
a rice-swamp, than to pass through
life under the harrow of debt. Let
no young man misjudge himself un
fortunate, or truly poor, so long as he
has the full use of his limbs and
faculties and is substantially free
Hunger, cold, rags, hard work,
contempt, suspicion, unjust reproach,
are disagreeable; but debt is infinitely
worse than them all. And, if it had
pleased God to save either or all of
my sons to be the support and solace
of my declining years, the lesson
which I should have most earnestly
sought to impress upon them is:
"Never to run into debt ! Avoid pe
cuniary obligations as you would
pestilence or famine. It you have
but fifty cents, and can get no more
for a week, buy a peck of corn, parch
it and live on it, rather than owe any
man a dollar !"
Of course I know that some men
must do business that involves risks,
and must give notes and other obliga
tions, and 1 do not consider him real
ly in debt who can lay his hands di
rectly on the means of paying at
some little sacrifice all he owes; ;
speak of real debt that which in
volves risk or sacrifice on the one
side, obligation and dependence on
the other and I say from all such
let every youth humbly pray God to
preserve him evermore !
An old physician, retired from
practice, having had placed in his
hands by an East India missionary
the formula of a simple vegetable
remedy for the speedy and perma
nent cure of Consumption, Uronchitis
(Marrh, Asthma and all thrat and
Lung Affections, also a positive and
radical cure for Nervous Debility and
all Nervous Complaints, after having
tested its wonderful curative powers
in thousands of cases, has felt it his
duty to make it known to his suffer
ing. fellows. Actuated by thi3 motive
and a desire to relieve human suffer
ing, I will send free of charge, to al
who desire it, this recipe, in German
French or English, with full direc
tions for preparing and using. Sent

By the exercise of a little care and
the adoption of a few simple rules, a
great deal of rheumatism could be
prevented. Abstemious living, free
exercise, frequent bathing to keep
the skin active, a liberal use of fruits
and the drinking of water in large
quantities are sure preventives
Water dissolves and washes waste
matter out of the system and its use
is essential where there is any im
pairment in the action of the kid
neys, bowels or skin. By the appl
cation of this simple treatment ant
ordinary care, immunity from rheu
inatism can be obtained.
We want every mother to know
that croup can be prevented. True
croup never appears without a warn
ing. The first symptom is hoarse
ncss : then the child appears to hav
taken cold or a cold may have ac
eompanied the hoarseness from the
start. Alter that a peculiar roug
cough is developed, which is lo
lowed by the croup. The time to
act is when the child first becomes
hoarse ; a few doses of Chamberlain'
Cough Itemed v will prevent the at
tack. Even after a rough cough has
appeared, the disease may be pre
vented tv using this remedy as ill
rooted. For sale by Ritchey it Bos

Onions as a Remedial Agent.
While the opion stands at a disad
vantage among vegetables on account
of its pronounced and not wholly
agreeable odor, it is", says Good
Iousekeeping, doubtless one of the
most valuable and healthful products
of tho garden. This value is not con
fined to its use as an article of diet,
since the efficiency of onion poultices
n cases of croup and similar diseases
are too well-known to need repeti-
ion. The roasted heart of an onion,
placed in the ear as hot hs it can be
borne, will' often relieve cases of ear
ache when other remedies fail, and a
very excellent cough syrup is made
by putting one-half cup of minced
onions into a cup each of vinegar and
molasses, simmering on the stove
half an hour and then straining. A
teaspoouful of this syrup taken fre
quently will relieve severe cases of
cough and hoarseness.
It is claimed that onions, as an ar
ticle of food are excellent bfood puri
fiers, greatly Improving the complex
ion, and of course, entirely harmless.
As a nervine, they are very benefi
cial, either cooked or raw, and, if
eaten in the natural state, the addi
tion of a little salt or pepper makes
them more palatable. The large,
m ported variety are much less pun
gent and disagreeable to the taste
than the smaller native growth, but
equally efficient in remedial action.
Poisoned by Scrofula .
Is the sad story of many lives
made miserable through no fault of
their own. Scrofula is more especial
y than any other a hereditary dis
ease, and for this simple reason
Arising from impure and insufficient
blood, the disease locates itself in the
the lymphatcs, which are composed
of white tissues ; there is a period of
foetal life when the whole body con
sists of white tissues, and therefore
the unborn child is especially sus
ceptible to this dreadful disease. But
there is a remedy for scrofula, wheth
er hereditary or acquired. It is Hood's
Sarsaparilla, which by its powerful
effect on the blood, expels all trace of
the disease and gives to the vital
fluid the quality and color of health
If you decide to take Hood's Sarsap
arilla do not accept any substitute.
The Exports of Breadstuff's.
The magnitude of the present ex
port movement is shown by the fact
that in the month of August, just
closed, the United States exported
21,499,919 bushels of wheat and 839,-
795 barrels of flour. At four and one
half bushels of wheat as the equiva
lent of one barrel of four, the flour
export equals 3,770,077 bushels of
wheat. This makes the total ship
ment of wheat in August 25,279,026
bushels, while in August last year we
shipped only 9,500,000 bushels against
11,000,000 the year before, and about
the some quantity in August, 1888
In fact, the United States exported
the past August almost forty per cent
of the quantity of wheat we shippei
in tne nrsi eight months ot lat year
following one of tho largest wheat
crops on record, and almost half as
much as was exported in the first
eight months of 1889. Such an
enormous and unprecedented August
export of wheat testifies to .the shad
ow oi lamine that lowers over
Europe, and to the fact that present
prices of wheat are far below the
natural value of the grain.

To Meainre the Sea Level.
A new apparatus for measuring tho
moan level or tne sea has lately been in
stalled at Marseilles. It is based on tho
principle that when a liquid wave trav
orstjs a capillary tube or a porous parti
tion its amplitude diminishes and it is
retarded in its phases within the moan
level of the ware changing. It consists
of a glass tube, the lower end of which
communicates by a flexible pipe with a
plunger which is lowered beneath t
lowest water level. There are two cells
in the plunger, the lower beiug filled
with saml and open to the sea, the result
being that the column of water in tht:
lube rises and falls very little with tin
tides, and the mean sea level can be read
ficm a graduated scale.

THE HOME OF THE CATS.
Thin Ii Not the ''Cat Home," but n
Great Field fer IU Pntronen.
Old Washington Market at West and
Vesey streets, New York, contains more
ats than auy other huilding in the city. .
During the clay a cat is a hard animal lo
find in the market, except one pet tabby
belonging to a butcher, and it sits on the
block with an air of pride, paying little
or no attention to the Bcores of its rela
tives that are hidden among the big
beams and pipes under the roof.
As soon as the butcher closes Ins stall
this tabby curls himself up under the
block or iu a soft cushion on the desk,
and promptly goes to sleep. Maybe ho
will awake once in a while to chase a
stray rat into its hole, but that is all he
When the last stall is closed a mew,
ong drawn out and hungry, is heard. It
is followed by other calls equally hungry
and hollcw, and down the cats troop.
The agile ones jump from beam to beam,
and from stall to st 11, until the floor is
eached. The timid ones come down
more cautiously. In five minutes tho
lower part of the market is alive. To a
eporter who visited the market at mid
night recently the sight was startling.
There were cats on tho floor, cats on tho
blocks, cats on the fish stands, cats on
the desks, and, in fact, cats everywhere.
There were white cats, black cats, tiger
cats, yellow cats, brown cats, and bluo
cat; disreputable cats, handsome cats,
proud cats, lame cats, fighting cats, peace
ful cats, runaway cats, sad cats, lively
cats, sick cats, bi cats, little cats, and
kittens. If there was one there were 300.
hud to a cat artist the place would have
been a paradise. Some of the cats
howled simply because they had nothing
else to do. Some were hungry and scur
ried around among the refuse boxes for
choice scraps ; some were quiet and con
tent to sit in little groups and purr softly
to one another, and others looked for
light and found plenty of it
During one of these periods of excite
ment the visitor, accompanied by tho
watchman, followed the noise and ar
rived on the scene just in time to see a
big 'black cat throw his opponent, a
yellow torn, on the floor and bury his
teeth in his throat. Grouped about the
fighters were five other cats that mado
up for their inactivity by howling. Dur
ing the fight not one of the cats made a
move and each watched the contestants
"Sullivan is at his work again," said
the watchman. "There'll be a dead cat
in a minute."
He was right. The watchman picked
up the body of the cat and said admir
Sullivan, you're a dandy, but you
give me more trou le a luggin out dead
cats than yer worth. "
The black cat uu not budge an Inch
until the watchi an had thrown tho
victim into a barrel at the door. Then
he smoothed down his fur, and when
last seen was in pursuit of a big white
cat that had stolen a bone from him.
The only other cat that has a name and
reputation in the market is "Murky,"
a huge tiger, with a hang dog, sneak
thief expression about his face. Ho
lights only with small cats and kittens,
and these he kills whenever he can.
Sullivan has often chased him, but
Mui ley is an expert climber and manages
to get away among the rafters. He is
held in great contempt by all the market
men, who spend many leisure moments
during the day throwing bones and
potatoes at him as he sleeps away in his
favorite nook. One day a big potato
struck him and knocked him oil his
perch 30 feet from the floor. Ho fell
squarely on his feet, after turning three
somersaults, and ran away as if nothing
All night long the cats reigned supreme,
and at the first break of day they
clambered up to their nests and hiding
places. The hungry had fed themselves,
the lighters lu.d been fought, and the sad
ones had tid their stories to sympathetic
Ten minutes later, when the early
purchasers began to troop in the market,
riot a cat wis to be seen except tho slick
domestic tabby on the block just waking
London Shop Glrlt.
Whatever money is paid to working
women or shop girls in these big stores
is so much over and above their board
and lodging. In Whitley's establish'
ment the wages run from 20 to 70 a
year for the female clerk. Out of this
they are only obliged to provide their
clothing; everything else is furnished
them. A shop girl in New York would
think she was doing pretty well to receive
from $3 to $12 a week over and above
her living expenses, even if she had to
wear black silk dresses every day
when she reached the 70 grade. The
purchasing power of a dollar, so far as
clothing is concerned, is double what it
is in our country. But I imagine our in
dependent American girl would prefer to
struggle along with the meager salary
most of them receive with the power to
come and go as they please rather than
to live in the cock loft over the store and
have no care as to what she shall eat and
where 6he shall sleep, but be obliged to
live up to certain rules and be in tho
house every night at 11 o'clock in the
evening. Thus the hours are Bhorter
with the English shop girl, and the work,
as a rule, lighter. London Letter to
