Damon and Pythias.
BY THE "FAT CONTRIBUTOR."
Tub Knights of Pythias, wys the
Omaha correspondent of U Cincinnati
Jm, art making quite a sensation in
Omaha at present. I can find out very lit
tle about that mysterious order. The title
of the ordr was doubtless mpeested by
the history of those ancient Greek buffers
who carried on a general friendship busi
ness nnder the fi:m name of " Damon &
Pythias." Thise worth!. lived in byra
cnse ( N. Y. . and were consequently known
as "Salt Pinters." Their back doors
fronts each other, and they were the
wpj-mest kind of friends, even in mid-win-ver.
Their friendship dated back to the
days of sunny childhood. If one of them
had anything be always wanted the ether
to have some of it. It, for instance, Da
mon got a licking from the school master,
he wasn't satisfied until Pythias got one
too. Pythias pot the measles once, and he
went right oil and gave them to Damon.
They shared everything together. Damon
found his father's whissv bottle one day,
bit he didn't keep it to himself. Not he.
He went and got Pythias drunk. If
Pythias run all night, Damon kept it up
all the next day, so that the days of Da
mon were equal to the Knights of Py
thias. Damon was a member of the City Coun
cil of Syracuse, while Pythias belonged to
the National Guards. It appears that one
Dionysius had been scheming to have the
Council declare him Mayor of Syracuse
without a vote of the people, and succeed
ed one morning when Damon was absetit.
Ascertaining what had been done, Damon
hastened to the council chamber, denounc
ing Dionysius and his fcllow-councilmen
who sustained the fraud. Meeting Dio
nysius, he attempted to stab him with an
ivory paper-cutter, remarking as he did
K By all toe rods! one blow
AM Syracuse as free!"
(There had been a heavy duty on Syra
cuse up to that time, owing to the salt
monopoly, and Damon was a free-trader.)
He might have freed his beloved city from
the tyrant had he not stopped to uby all
the gods, rt and blow about it. He was
secured by the mayor's new police and
condemned to death.
Pythias had a sweetheart named Cal
anthe, whom he loved next to Damon.
Their wedding day was appointed, and
just as the marriage ceremony was being
performed, news was brought to Pythias
of what had occurred, and leaving Cal
anthe only about half -married, he hastened
to the station-house where Damon was
confined, arriving just as he was being
led forth to execution. Damon was peti
tioning Dionysius for a ew hours' respite,
in order that he might see his family, but
the tyrant wouldn't listen to it.
Pythias then offered to take Damon's
place for the space of six hours, and if, at
the expiration of that time, his friend re
turned not, he would perish in his stead
hoped to die if he wouldn't ! The propo
sition was accepted, and Damon hurried
away to his family, who lived away out
in the vicinity of the salt works.
Sad indeed was the parting of Mr. and
Mrs. Damon. The interview was neces
sarily brief. He had to hurry back, or he
wouldn't be in season to see himself die.
Damon was much affected, and when he
tore himself away there was a dame on
the floor in a swoon.
" Fetch up the old mare !" yelled Damon
to his hired man, Lucullus. He was
excited, because, you see, it was getting
late, and he didn't-want to keep the execu
tioner waiting on his account. Then it
was Lucullus acknowledged that, in- order
to save his master, he had given the old
mare a dog-button, and the coroner was
even then aittif g on the body. Furious
at the thought of not reaching Syracuse
within the allotted time, and knowing how
mortified .Pythias would be U compelled
to die in consequence, he seized Lucullus
to rend him to pieces. It would have bee a
good-bye Lucullus had not a horseman
appeared at that moment, whom Damon
persuaded to dismount, taking him gently

stead, he dashed away towards the city.
In the meantime," every preparation
had been made for the execution of Pyth
ias. Time was up, and no word from Damon.
The people sneered, and asked if anybody
supposed Damon was such a fool as to
come back agsiii, and even Pythias began
to fear his old pard had gone back on
Suddenly a great shout was heard. A
ifloud of dust was seen to rise up in the
direction of the salt-works. It approached
rapidly, and in a short time Damon came
tearing in on horseback, at a pace that
would have made Phil Sheridan so
ashamed of himself that he would have
ridden " twenty miles away " and hid.
There was just a shade of disappoint
ment on Damon's face when he saw that
Pythias still lived; but he jumped off his
horse, threw a hand-spring on the scaf
fold, and shouted : "Bring on your cleaver !
Damon is on deck!"
' Dionysius was bo struck with this exhi
bition of friendship that he pardoned them
both at once. They then fell into each
other's arms, exclaiming :
Actokaton figures, or Androides, made
to imitate human actions, are of early in
vention. Archytas of Tarentum, a re
nowned mathematician and mechanic, who
redeemed Plato when sold as a slave by
Dionysius, the younger, about 400 years
B. C, made a flying dove, which is men
tioned by several classic authors. But the
earliest automata are the tripods, moved
on living wheels and instinct with life,
which Homer describes Vulcan as having
made. Next are the curious creations of
Daedalus walking and dancing statues,
and a wooden cow, which moved and gave

have made a brazen head which spoke.

when a child. The horses and figures
moved naturally, variously and perfectly.
They were made in 1649.
Vaucanson made an artificial duck,
which performed every function of a real
one, even an imperfect digestion eating,
drinking and quacking. Vaucanson also
made a flute player in 1733. He under

display all the mechanism of the circula

In the fifteenth century, a German,
named John Muller Rigio Montanus,
made an eagle and an iron fly. The eagle
is said to have flown from the city of
JlonigsDerg, saluted tue -mperor, who
was making his entrance, and returned-to
his maker. The fly, it is recorded, would
fly about the room, with a buzzing sound,
and, after a minute or two, alight upon his
maker's hand. ,
In the middle of the last century, two
philosophical mechanics named Droz
(father and son) made some wonderful au
tomatons in Paris. The father made the
figure of a child, seated at a desk, which
dipped its pen in the ink, and wrote in
French, from dictation. The son made a
female piano-forte player, which sat down
to the harpsichord, played several tunes,
following with her eyes and head the notes
on the musical book, and at the close rose
and saluted the audience.
A number of years after this Maillardet
exhibited a female figure, which, seated at
a piano, played for an hour, moving the
fingers and eyes naturally, and imitating
breathing by a gentle heaving of the
breast With this ne showed a humming
bird coming out of a box, perching on a
bough, moving wings, breast and eyes,
and opening its beak as if to emit song,
its little throat moving all the titna At
the same time he exhibited the figure of a
boy kneeling on one knee and holding a
pen in his hand, with which he wrote and
made various drawings. He had also
made a mechanical tumbler a little image
about two inches high, inclosed in a glass
case, the lower part of which contained
the mechanism. When this figure was set
in motion it threw itself into a variety of
elegant and grotesque attitudes, dancing
to some music produced by the macnine.
In 1309, JUL MaetzeL a fine mechanic,
made a trumpeter for the Emperor of Aus
tria which was exhibited at Vienna, and
played the Austrian and French cavalry
marches with great skill. But M. Vau
canson's flageolet player, constructed in
1741, was wonderful. It produced music
from a flageolet held in one hand, while
the other shook a tambourine.
In 1269, Roger Bacon, one of the finest
scholars of his age, suggested a reforma
tion of the calendar, invented the magni-fying-glass,

One of the most remarkable pieces of
mechanism ever mQcle was known as the
" Automaton Chess Player." It was msde
by Wolfgang de KeuaocleD, a Hungarian,
who, seeing some carious magnetical per
formances exhibited at Vienna, in 1769,
told the Empress Maria Thtresa that he
thought he could contrive something
which would throw these apparent won
ders into the shade. She was excited by
this boast, and desired him to try it In
six months he produced the "Automaton
For many years Kempelen refused to
exhibit it in public, though he frequently
snowed it in toe impress private rooms
in Vienna. He also declined many
offers to purchase it, and at last took it to
The Grand Duke of Russia having vis
ited Vienna, he was requested to show the
figure to him. It excited so much wonder
that he was azaiu urged to make money
by exhibiting it in public. He consented,
and showed it in nearly every great city
in Europe. On his death, in i21, the au
tomaton was sold, after which it was taken
to the United States, where it has been
seen by thousands.
The so-called automaton resemmed a
Turk, full sized, dressed in Oriental cos
tume, and seated behind a box which re
sembled a chest of drawers. Before pro
ceeding to action the exhibitor opened
several doors in this chest, which revealed
a large army of wheels, pullers, cylinders,
springs, etc The chesst:n were taken
from a large drawer, and a cushion was
placed on the table for the Turk to rt st
his right arm upon ; the left hand, some
what raised, held a pipe. 'When the doors
vere opened, a lighted candle was placed
within the cavities thus displayed. This
removed, and the doors closed, the exhib
itor wound up the works, placed the cush
ion under the right arm of the figure, and
challenged any one to play.
The Turk always played with the white
men, and made the first move. The hand
and fingers opened on touching the piece,
which it firmly grasped and placed on the
proper square. Then the living antagon
ist moved hi piece ; after which, pausing
for a few moments, as if to study the game,
the Turk moved another piece. On giving
check to the king, the figure shook its
head. Sometimes, to try It, the human
player made a false move. The figure
never allowed this to pass unnoticed, but'
tapped on the chest or box in an apparent
ly impatient manner, replaced the piece,
and punished the adversary by taking the
move for itself. If the human player was
too long considering his move, the auto
maton tapped smartly on the chest with
the right hand, as if to desire him to
" hurry up." All through the game the
whizzing sound of machinery in motion
While Mr. Kempelen retained the auto
maton the figure invariably won the game.
After it had passed, on his death, into the
possession of M. Maetzel, it was frequent
ly defeated, though its piay was always
When the game was ended, the Turk
removed the knight, with its proper zig
zag motion, from the square it occupied
over the other sixty-three squares of the
board in turn, without missing a single
square, or touching any square a second
It was long doubted whether this really
was a mere automaton. It was observed
that, in winding np the clockwork, the
key never went beyond a certain number
of revolutions, whether the game was locg
or short Sixty-three moves had been
made without winding up, and once, in a
moment of forgetfulness, the figure played
without any winding up, after the last
game. The original story as to the his
tory of this machine was, that it had been
constructed to permit a Siberian exile to
escape from Russia, by being concealed
witnin, and mat being a awari, tins was
easily done. But it was made in Vienna,
and when the niys'.ery was disclosed, it
appeared that there really was room, not
withstanding the apparent show of wheels
and machinery, for a man to sit in, with a
chess board before him, on which, by me
chanical arrangement each move made by
the figure was instantly repeated, each re
turn move made below being equally re
peated on the squares above. Of course,
the concealed player was" always an ex
.pert Sir David Brewster, inventor of the
stereoscope, wrote an article upon the au
tomaton chess player, in which he proved
by measurement and diagrams, that a man
must be concealed within the box to make
the play of the Turkish figure. After he
had made this disclosure, it was confessed
that his philosophical and practical con
jecture had been true. Troy Daily Time.

Time as it does a gallery of choice treas

swallowed up in the other great waves of

Uses of Ashes.
Dbv, clean wood ashes are richly worth
twenty-five cents a bushel, we think,to
any farmer who wants more manure. Yea
can scarcely use them on any crop without
very sinsible results. A handful thrown
around the corn plants at the first hoeing
will greatly increase their growth, and
give them a highly dark green color.
Scattered in the hill before the potato is
covered, or about the hill just before hoe
ing, will have similar results. Sown broad
cast on the mowing fields at the rate of as
small an amount as five bushels to the
acre, will greatly increase the growth and
color of the crop. Besides this, their ben
eficial results will continue for several
years in succession. Strewed over young
cabbage plants, squashes, melons, or any
of the garden vegetables, such as toma
toes, beets, onions, turnips or carrots, wood
a-hi-8 not only tend to disturb the insects
that infest the plants, but has a decide.!
influence on their growth and quality. All
the ashes made on the farm should be col
lected with care, kept dry and applied to
the crops. Nothing could be better for
the young orchard. Spreading ashes broad
cast o'er the surface would be more tiee
ful than as a mulch for the trees. The
roots will soon find it if spread. It is bet
ter to use a moderate quantity annually,
than to apply a large amount at one time.
Ashes may be safely u d iu composts
of loam, muck, straw, or dry fibrous ma
terials; they would tend t i reduce them.
If in composts, where the droppings of
cattle are a portion of the material, the
ashes should be applied immediately be
fore the compost is to be used an! the
compost be slightly covered by the soil.
The easiest and best way, however, is to
apply ashes in a dry state and unmixed.

To Make Current Wine.
The currants should be fully ripe when
picked ; put them in a large tub, in which
they should remain a day or two, then
crush with the hands, unless you have a
small 'ps,tit wine press, in which they
should not be pressed too much, or the
stems will be bruised and impart a a dis
agreeable taste to the juice. If the hands
are used, put the crushed fruit after the
juice has been poured off, in a cloth or
sack and press out the remaining juice.
Put the juice back in the tub after cleans
ing it, where it should remain about three
days, until the first stage of fermenta
tion is over, and removing once or twice
a day the scum copiously arising to the
top. Then put the juice in a vessel a
demiiohn. kee or barrel any shse to suit
the quantity made, and to each quart of
juice add three pounds ot the Dest yenow
sugar, and soft water sufficient to make - a
gallon. Thus, ten quarts of juice and
thirty pounds of sugar will give you ten
gallons of wine, and so on in that pro
portion. Those who do not like sweet
wine can reduce the quantity of sugar to
24. or. who wish it very sweet raise it to
3V Bounds oer gallon. The vessel must
be full and the bung or stopper left off
until fermentation ceases, which win De m
twelve or fitteen days. Meanwhile, the
cask must be filled up daily with currant
juics left over, as fermentation throws out
the impure matter. nen iermentation
ceases, rack the wine off carefully, either
from the spigot or by a syphon, and keep
running all the time. Cleanse the cask
thoroughly with boiling water, then re
turn the wine, bung up tightly, and let
stand four or five months, when it will be
fit to drink, and can be bottled if dctired.
All the vessels, casks, etc., should be per
fectly sweet, and the whole operation
should be done with an eye to cleanliness.
In such event every drop of brandy or
other spirituous liquors added will de
tract from the flavor oi the wine, and wui
not in the least degree increase its keeping
qualities. Currant wine made in this way
will keep for an age. We have some made
in 1S56, which is really an excellent article.
Linseed Tea for Sick Horses.
Linseed tea is not only valuable as a
restorative for sick horses, but is exceed
ingly useful in cases of inflammation of
the membranes peculiar to the organs of
respiration and digestion; it shields and
lubricates the same ; tranquilizes the irri
table parts, and favors healthy action. We
have prescribed linseed tea in large quan
tities, for horses laboring under the pre
vailing influenza; they seemed to derive
mueh benefit from it and generally drank
it with avidity. Aside from the benefits
we derive from the action of mucilage and
oil which the seed contains, its nutritive
elements are of some account especially
when given to animals laboring under
soreness in the organs of deglutition
which incapacitates from swallowing
more solid food. In the event
of an animal becoming prostrated by ina
bility to masticate or swallow more food,
linseed tea may be resorted to, and in case
of irritable cough, the addition of a little
honey makes it still more usefuL In
latter form it may be given to animals
laboring under acute or chronic diseases of
the urinary apparatus, more especially of
the kidneys. To prepare linseed tea, put
a couple of handtuls ot seed into
bucket a pour a gallon and a half of boil
ing water upon it Cover it upjs short
time, then add a couple of quarts of cold
water, when it will be fit lor use. Amen

Two old plowmen down East were tell
ing tough stories of their exploits in break
ipg up new ground. The hi en was taken
oil the bush in this yarn :
"'Twas up in Dixmont twenty-seven
years ago this spring, I was plowing in

Oil-Meal for Cows and Calves in Summer.
When cows are m profit, a little extra
feed, in the shape of oil meal, will be amply
repaid in the yield of milk and butter. It
must not be supposed that because a cow
is on pasture there is no longer need for
stimulating food. The fact is, that with
ftn ample supply of grass, the appetite of
the cow tor the meal is quite as vigorous
as during the winter, when she was fed on
hay. Cows may be very profitably fed
with a quart each of oil-meal morning and
night They will lick it up from a trough,
if it is made sufficiently large, without
waste. When cows are not tied up at
night, a good plan of feeding them is to
have a square box for each cow, large
enough for her to put her nose in easily,
and six inches deep. Put the allowance
of meal in these boxes. They may be
scattered about the yard, at such a distance
as will give each animal an opportunity to
eat without being driven away by others.
Calves will soon show, in their improved
appearance and hastened growth, that oil
meal is good for them also. A small
handful given them in their pasture daily
will push them forward rapidly. It is well
to use a small tin pan to feed them with,
and a few minutes spent with the young
stock daily is not only an agreeable occu
pation, but highly profitable ; for the more
regularly the owner's attention is given to
his cattle, the sooner he will perceive any
thing wrong, and be able at once to remedy
it aud a daily visit is seldom made unless
there is some express purpose in it Let
the purpose then be to give them a little
extra feed, and a double benefit will result

How to Brighten Straw Matting

a-days, and when used, not sufficiently,
Fine the land for twenty inches or more.
Hall this depth is mellow jet compact
somewhat draining itseit readily, yet ad
mitting the air, and if the crop is put out
early as early as possible so as to get
the start of the prospective drought of
midsummer; if weeds are kept out and the
soil in good motion, stirring it well and
often; if, withal, the land is rich and not too
direct in the sun not on a south hillside,
but a north rather if all these things are
rigidly seen to, there will not, there can
not be failure of a good crop. A severe
drought will not prevent it nor a rainy
season ; the cool fall will perfect what the
summer advanced. The great depth of
soil is good lor the moisture, where the
roots have a chance to penetrate and luxu
riate even with a raging sun overhead.
But the land wants to be fertile, and if the
manure is put down it will not hurt it for
that crop; the roots will find it, and the
work will go on with vigor. The manure
should be spread and permitted to lie for
some time, lor weeks, better tor months.
The soil immediately below will then have
received much of its strength, and when it
goes under, soil and manure are both rich,
and will form a good bed for the roots.
The best success I ever saw was a field
treated in this way, horse manure being
turned down. The soil was deep; there
was a great drought, but in the fall it push
ed forward ; the manure then drove, aided
by the rains. It was a crop of carrots. It
is the depth of cultivation and the manure
that have a wonderful virture, the very
things that are neglected. We use ma
nure, but not enough, not mixed with the
soil sufficiently, through its juices first and
then by the plow. We like sod for roots
but let it be rotted and made mellow by
after plowing and cultivating. This last
has been among our best experiences.
We can then secure a root crop with
certainty. Why not do it? Why run
risks? We know what they are; in too
many cases they are a loss, and this no one
can afford, for the loss is not a common
one according to the amount of land used
good soil is selected, nnusual labor expend
ed. Make the soil still better, devote more
labor to it judiciously, and this loss will
be avoided ; in its place will be a crop that
will pay for all, with a fair margin to boot
and such a crop, where the drought is
fought is more nutritious than where wa
ter has been imbibed ; there is more con
centration, more excellent stuff. As the
seasons now run, we must expect drought,
and depth of soil for moisture, and manure
to drive must ba relied upon to overcome
it Country Oentletnan.
Saving Clover Seed.
It is not an uncommon occurrence for
a field supposed to have been sown with
clover-seed, to prove to have been sown
with many other seeds not mentioned in
the catalogues. While the seed purchased
from responsible seedmcn is generally free
from admixture with seeds of weeds, in
consequence of the care with which they
select it, many a farmer has permitted im
pure seed, bought at country stores, to be
put into the ground, and has, in conse
quence, reaped a plentiful harvest of mul
leins, ragweeds, and other abominations.
This might have been avoided had he
raised his own seed. For clover-seed, se
lect a small piece which was well summer
fallowed, and freed from weeds, and laid
down with carefully-selected seed in the
first place : cut early, and save the second
growth for seed. This would be a profita
ble experiment on any larm. Any surplus
seed so grown would meet a ready sale at
a high price, by reason of iu purity.
Clean seed will often bring a dollar a
bushel above the market price, while im
pure seed will be begging a sale unsuccess
fully at any price. Clover for seed may
be conveniently cut ani gathered by at
taching a light frame behind the cutter
bar of the mowing machine, and covering
it wi'.h a piece of cotton cloth. The heads
wui fall on this cloth, and may be raked
together by a boy following ; when a suf-
uueia quauuiy nas Deen gaincrea- one
sweep of the rake will leave them on the
ground in a heap. Being, at this season,
almost free from sap and moisture, seed
clover is very easily cured. A wetting
with rain, and subsequent drying, will
make it thresh more easily. A'.uriean

KOT MERELY TOTIOKLB TBE PALATB, but to
infuse health and vigor into the enervated
and diseased system, is the high purpose and
sure effect of Da. Walkek's Vegetable
Vineqab Bitters. This famous restorative
creates no sndden flash of excitement, to be
succeeded by increased debility and ten-fold
gloom. It braces the relaxed nerves and im
parts permanent tone and regularity to the
whole animal machinery. Dyspepsia, liver

and, in fact, nearly all complaints that arc
not organic, yield to its operation.
Poisoned to death.
A healthy liver secretes each day about two
and a halt ponnds of bile, which contains a
great amount of waste material taken from
the blood. When the liver becomes torpid or
congested, it falls to eliminate this vast
amount of noxious substance, which, there
fore, remains to poison the blood and be con
veyed to every part of the system. What
must be the condition of the blood when it
is receiving and retaining each day two and
half pounds of poison ? Nature tries to work
off this poison through other channels and
organs the kidneys, lungs, skin, etc. ; bnt
tbese "organs become overtaxed in performing
this labor, in addition to their natural func
tions, and cannot long withstand the press
ure, but become variously diseased.
The brain, which is the great electrical cen
ter of all vitality, is unduly stimulated by the
unhealthy blood which passes to it from the

which are dnllness, headache, incapacity to
keep the mind on any subject, impairment
memory, dizzy, sleepy or nervous feelings,
gloomy forbodings and irritability of temper.
The Mood Ustlf being diseased, as it forms the
sweat upon the surface of the skin, it is so irri
tating and poisonous that it produces discol
ored brown spots, pimples, blotches and other
eruptions, sores, biles, carbnncles and scrof
ulous tumors. The stomach, bowels and
other organs spoken of, cannot escspe becom
ing affected, sooner or later, and eostiveness,
and many other forms of chronic disease, are
among the necessary results. As a remedy fur
all these various manifestations of disease. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery Is positive

How to Purchase a Clothes Wringer.
In pnrchasing a clothes wringer we prefer
one with cosr-wheels, as they greatly relieve
the rubber roils from strain that would other
wise occur, and add much to tbe durability of
tbe mactrne. me next point is to sec mat
the cog-wheels are so arranged as not to fly
apart when a large article is passed between
tbe rollers, it matters not wcetner tne cog
wheels arc on one end or both ends of tne
shaft : if large articles disconnect them, they
are entirely useless. This is very important,
for as the larger the article the greater the
strain, therefore if the cog-wheels separate so
as to disconnect, they are of no service when
most needed. Wc have taken some pains to
examine the various wringers, aud much pre
fer the " Lniversal." ss latelv unproved, be
cause it has long and strong gears (Rowell's
Patent Double Gear), and is the only wringer
with "patent stop" for preventing the cog
wheels from separating so far as to loje their
