Waiting for the Ship.
About an h Jhrt ride from the Plaza
there is a high bluff with the ocean break
ing uninterruptedly along its rocky beach.
There are several cottages on the sands,
which look as if they might have been
recently cast up by a heavy sea. The col
tivated patch behind each tenement is
fenced in by bamboos, broken spars and
driftwood. With its few preen cabbages
and turnip tops, each garden looks like
an aquarium with the water turned off.
In fact you would not be surprised to
meet a mer-man digging among the pota
toes, or a mermaid milking a sea-cow
Near this place formerly arose a great
semaphoric telegraph with its gaunt arms
tossed up against the horizon. It has
been replaced by an observatory, connected
with an electric nerve to the heart of the
great commercial city. From this point
the in coming ships are signaled, and
again checked ofT at the City Exchange
And while we are here looking for the ex
pected steamer, let me tell you a story :
Not long aso, a simple, hard-working
mechanic had amassed sufficient, by dili
gent labor in the mines, to send home for
his wife and two children. He arrived in
San Francisco a month before the ship
was due, for he was a Western man, and
had made the over-land journey, and knew
little of ships, or seas, or gales. lie pro
cured work in the city, but as the time ap
proached he would go to the shipping of
fice regularly every day. The month
passed, but the ship came not, then a
month and a week, two weeks, three
weeks, two months, and then a year.
The roagh, patient face, with 6oft lines
overlying its hard features, which had be
conr e a daily apparition at the shipping
agents', then disappeared. It turned up
one afternoon at the observatory, as the
setting sun relieved the operator from his
duties. There was something so child
like and simple in the few questions asked
by this stranger, touching his business,
that the operator spent some time to ex
plain. When the mystery of signals and
telegraphs was unfolded, the stranger had
one more question to ask. " How long
might a vessel be absent before they would
give ud expecting her?" The operator
couldn't tell; it would depend on circum
stances. Would it be a year? Yes, it might
be a year; and vessels have been given up
for lost after two years, and have come
home. The stranger put his rough hand
on the operator's, thanked him for his
u trouble," and went away. Still the ship
came not Stately clippers swept into the
gate, and merchantmen went by with col
ors flying, and the welcoming gun of the
steamer often reverberated among the
hills. Then the patient tace, with the old
resumed expression, but a brighter, wist
ful look in the eye, was regularly met on
the decks of the steamer as she disem
barked her living freights. He may have
had a dimly denned hope that the missing
ones might yet come this way, as only an
other road over that strange, unknown ex
panse. But he talked with ship-captains
and sailors, and even this last hope seemed
to fail. When the care-worn face and
bright eyes were presented again at the
observatory, the operator, busily engaged,
could not spare time to answer foolish in
terrogatories, so he went away. But, as
night fell, he was seen sitting on the rocks
with his face turned seaward, and was
seated there all that night

and the idea that he would relieve the op

all day, seemed to please him. So he

He was there to see the outward-bound

Sunday, a party of pleasure-seekers clam
bering over the rocks were attracted by
the barking of a dog that had run before

Raynor; and how he came by so much in
formation as he seemed to have, I do not
remember that we troubled ourselves to
inquire ; but my father, who liked John
exceedingly, said it was from his constant
habit of observation. He was then four
teen, only two years older than myself.
One evening, during the absence of my
parents, we occupied ourselves with as
sisting our old gardener. The garden
sloped down to a broad river, which joined
the sea at a few miles distance. I was
not so busy but I looked up every now
and then to watch the beautiful sunset
that sparkled on the water, or the passage
of boats, and country barges that glided
by at intervals. Suddenly I observed at a
short distance, something floating on the

seizing with one hand the hair, with the

We watched eagerly, and the moment he
came within reach assisted him in laving
the body on a grass-plot My brother
Edward recognized him as the son of a
washerwoman, exclaiming, as he burst in
"Poor woman, she will never see her

John replied in a hurried tone
"She may, if we lose no time, and use
the right means to recover him. Edward

the kitchen, tell Susan to have a bed
"We had better hold him up by the

"No, no, no !" exclaimed John ; "by so
doing we shall kill him, if he is not al
ready dead. We must handle him as
gently as possible."
When the body had been carried Into
the house, the gardener urged John to
place the body near the kitchen fire ; but
after a little persuasion they yielded to
John's entreaty, and the body was rubbed
dry, and 'placed on his right side between
hot blankets, - on a mattress. The head
was bound with flannel and placed high
on pillows, four bottles were filled with
hot water, wrapped in flannels, and placed
at the arm pits and feet while the body
was constantly rubbed with hot flannels.
John then took the bellows, and ha vine
blown out all the dust, directed me to close
the mouth and one nostril, while he, by
blowing in at the other, filled the chest
with air; he then laid aside the bellows,
and pressed the chest upwards to force
the air out -This was done from twenty

and uttered a faint sigh.

A Dutch Lover.
A young gentleman in Amsterdam had
been, a year or two ago, paying his ad
dresses, without success, to a young lady.
The father of the maiden was altogether
obdurate, and could not be induced to
favor the suit : but the swain had observed
certain symptoms which led him to believe
that his attentions were not wholly unac
ceptable to the lady. When the festival
of the St Nicholas (December 5th) ap
proached, some waggish friends proposed
a plan of offering his hand and heart, the
drollery of which might possibly soften
the unwilling father, and assure the lady
of the entire devotion of his person.
On the eve ot bt .Nicholas a long and
rather narrow box, with some holes in the
lid, was conveyed to the house of Mynheer
, addressed to JufVrouw, with the
swain's compliments, in addition to which,

With some trouble the box was removea
there by the maids.
Dinner draceed its slow lengtn aiong,
was artfully protracted, and the opening
of the box kept in abeyance until it was
almost time to go to bed.
Then the hammer was missing, the
screw driver could not be found, and at
last the opening of the wonderful box put
off until next morning.
"Goede-nacht slaap good." All de
parted, save Mynheer , the father.
With bed-candle in hand, he went to the
box, listened carefully for a moment or
two, and then, giving the box a slight kick,
proceeded to moralize aloud :
"What a fool that little donkey of a fel
low is to suppose I will ever let him have

her? What can these little holes be for?

The Nerves and "Tone."
What is the source of this irritability
which renders it impossible to keep the
muscles still ? We can answer, in general.
that irritability means weakness it is a
tendency to too easy an overthrow of the
balance in which the living textures exist ;
the excessive action Ansea irom too rapid
a decay. A philosophical physician com
pares it to the whirling movement of the
hands of a watch of which the main spring
is broken : and the eminent French exper
imentalist, M. Claude Bernard, has thrown
a light on this condition by pointing out
ui&i an nmiaiunti pruneness to ucuviiy ex
ists in every organ of a living animal at a
period immediately preceding the death of
the part In our physical, as in our moral
nature, strength is calm, patient, orderly;
weakness hurries, cannot be at rest at
tempts too much. The force which, in the
living frame, binds up the elements into
organic forms, being relaxed, too easily
permits them to sink down, and ineffectual
mimicries of energy ensue,
But how is living strength to be insured
in respect to the functions we have spoken
of? The laws we have been tracing give
ns a partial answer to this question.
Strength in the living body is maintained
by the full but natural exercise of each or
gan ; and as we have seen, the action of
these portions of the nervous system is
made dependent upon the influences con
veyed to them by the sensitive nerves dis
tributed over the various parts of the body.
And among these the nerves passing to the
skin are the chief The full access of all
healthy stimuli to the surface, and its free
dom from all that irritates or impedes its
functions, are the first external conditions
of the normal vigor of this nervous cir
cle. Among these stimuli, fresh air and
pure water hold the first place. Sufficient
warmth is second. The great and even
wonderful advantages of cleanliness are
partly referable to the direct influence of
a skin healthily active, open to all the
natural stimuli and free from morbid irri
tation, upon the nerve-centers of which
it is the appointed Tcitant This iuflu
ence is altogether distinct from those
cleansing functions which the healthy
skin performs for the blood, and in any
just estimate of its value is far too impor
tant to be overlooked.
That S'ate of general vigor which we
call "tone "also depends upon the healthy
action of these nervous centers. It con
sists in an habitual moderate contraction
ot the muscles, due to a constant stimulus
exerted on them by the spinal cord, and is
valuable less for itself than as a sign of a
sound nervous balance. Tone is maintained
partly by healthful impressions ra
diated upon the spinal cord, through the
nerves, from all parts of the body, and
partly by the stimulus poured down upon
it from the brain. So it is disturbed by
whatever conveys irritating or depressing
inflences in either direction. A single in
judicious meal, a sleepless night, a single
passion or piece of bad news will destroy
it On the other hand, a vivid hope, a
cheerful resolve, an absorbing interest,
will restore it as if by magic. For in
man these lower officers iu the nervous
hierarchy draw their very breath accord
ing to the biddings of the higher powers.
But the dependence of the higher on the
lower is no less direct The mutual ac
tion takes place in each line. A chief
condition of keeping the brain healthy is
to keep these unconscious nervous func
tions iu full vigor, and in natural alter
nations of activity and repose. Thus
it is that (besides its effect in in
creasing the breathing and the gen
eral vigor of the vital processes) muscu
lar exercise has so manifestly a beneficial
influence on a depressed or irritable state
of mind. The bodily movement, by af
fording an outlet to the activity of the
spinal cord, withdraws a source of irrita
tion frcm the brain ; or it may relieve ex
citement of that organ by carrying off its
energy into a safe channel. We see evi-
1 dence of the same law in the delightful
effect of a cheerful walk, and the demand
for violent exertion, which is so frequent
in insanity. Every part of the nervous
system makes its influence felt by all the
rest A sort of constitutional monarchy
exists within us ; no power in this small
State is absolute, or can escape the checks
and limitations which the other powers
impose. Doubtless the brain is King; bet
Lords and Commons have their seats be
low, and guard their privileges with jeal
ous zeal. If the " constitution " of our
personal realm is to be preserved intact, it
must be by the efforts of each part, law
fully directed to a common end. ThouglUs
The Humbug of Early Rising.
All this talk about early rising is moon
shine. The habit of turning out of bed in
the middle of the night suits some people;
let them enjoy it But it is folly to lay
down a general rule upon the subject.
Some men are fit for nothing all day after
they have risen early in the morning.
Their energies are deadened, their imagi
nations are heavy, their spirits are de
pressed. It is said you can work so well
in the morning. Some people can, but
others can work best at night; others,
again, in the afternoon. Long trial and
experiment form the only conclusive tests
upon these points. As for getting up
early because Prof Gammon has written
letters to the papers proving the necessity
of it let no one be goose enough to do it
We all know the model man, aged eighty :
"I invariably rise at 5; I work three
hours, take a light breakfast namely, a
cracker and a pinch of salt work five
hours more; never smoke, never drink
anything but barley-water, eat no dinner,
and go to bed at 6 in the evening." If
anybody finds that donkeyfied sort of life
suit him, by all means let hi on continue it
But few people would care to live to
eighty on those terms. If a man cannot
get all withered and crumpled up on easier
conditions than those, it is almost as wt 11
that he should depart before he is a nuis
ance to himself and a bore to everybody
else. School boys, and young people
generally, ought to get up early, for it is
found that nine-tenths of them can stand
it ; and it does them good. But let no one
torture himself with the thought that he
could have been twice as good man as he
is if he had risen every morning at day
light The habit would kill half of us in
five years. Hew Tork Time.
How to Give Children an Appetite.
GrvK children an abundance oT out door
exercise, fun and frolic ; make them reg
ular in their habits, and feed them only
upon plain, nourishing food, and they will
seldom, if ever, complain of a lack of appetite.-
But keep them overtasked in
school, confined closely to the house the
rest of the time, frowning every attempt at
play ; feed them upon rich or high season
ed food, candies, nuts, etc, allow them to
eat between meals, and in the evening, and
you need not expect them to have good
appetites, cm the contrary, you may expect
they will be pale, weak and sickly.
JJon t cram them with food when they
don t want or have no appetite font such
a course is slow murder. If they have no
appetites, encourage, and if need be com
mand them to take exercise in the open
air. Don't allow them to study too much,
and especially keep them from reading the
exciting light literature which so much
abounds in our bookstores and circulating
libraries. In addition to securing exercise
for the children as above, change their
diet somewhat; especially when they have

Albert was taken sick. His case was doing

grew until he died. It is true that they

A corresponi:r?t of the Lcwietown
(Me.) Journal raja t "The local requisites
for the manufdcuira of good butter are
air, wholesome waiir, and a sufficiency of
Bweet, nutritious ueroagc. f resh, rich,
juicy feed will eohance both the quality
and quantity of milk and butter. The
requisites named belon g, generally, to some
what elevated or hilly districts, rather
than to those or an opposite character.
A rolling, elevated country, hillv often.
times, abounding in springs of soft water,
and drained by clear rippling streams flow
ing over gravelly beds, constitute the pre
dominating character of the best daiiying
districts of Vermont New York and the
Middle Mates, so famous for their dairy
products. On such lands the best and
sweetest natural grasses obtain, and per
haps half a dozen more different varieties
abound, in themselves full of the best
milk-producing qualities. In nearly all of
our billy pastures the white or Dutch
clover abounds, the presence of which in
dicates a good range for cows.
Another essential is a change of pas
ture. This, I believe, U contrary to the
teachin gs of some, but I think where prac
ticable it ia, the better way to give the
cows a chaste of range every ten days or
so. Fresh pastures are clean, the grass is
even, full and nutritious, and the animals
will fill themselves and then lie down and
digest their food in quietness. A pasture
long run over becomes soiled with the
droppings and treadings of the cows upon
it A better flow of milk follows a change
into a new pasture than a continuance on
an old one, and it is more economical.
Turning off from a close-fed pasture, the
rains bring it up anew, and in a few days
or weeks it is ready for the cows again,
while the one last fed again grows up to
supply its place, when that is exhausted.
During the latter part of July, and gen
erally through August, the feed in the pas
tures gets short The deficiency may be
made up wholly or in part at least bv ex
tra feed from drilled corn or second crop
grass from the mowing field.
Cows, to yield the best returns, should
always have ready access to a plenty of
good water. This is almost indispensable,
lor it is impossible to make good butter
without a good supply of pure water.
Those having pastures where the water
fails in a dry time have probably observed
how rapidly their cows shrink in their
milk when water is scarce and the animals
do not get their usual supply. When we
consider that about eighty-seven parts of the
constituents of milk are water, a cow that
gives a large quantity of mlik would re
quire a good supply to keep up a uniform
flow of milk. It would be far better to
induce them to take all the water they
will, than to have them nut upon short al
quanmies oi water will increase the now
of milk is certain; but to what extent the
quantity of milk may be increased with
eut detriment to the quality, by inducing
the animal to take an abundant supply ot
liquid, I am not prepared to say. But I
am satisfied that milk of good quality may
be increased by this method.
All the improvements in sed have been
the result of selection. The best seed
selected for use has yielded an improved
product and the process again and again
repeated has finally resulted in secur
ing the plant, root, or grain desired.
Corn has been much improved bv a course
of selection, but farmers who have most
at stake in this matter are too careless to
c-irry out experiments to a final result
Now, if a seed could be secured that
would produce with certainty two ears of
corn to eacn siaik, our corn crop would
be vastly increased, and it is pretty cer
tain that if for a succession of years no
corn were planted but that which pro
duced two ears to the stalk, the peculiarity
would become fixed, and a corn having
this as a distinguishing characteristic
would become an established variety.
What we need is that farmers should be
careful to select their seed ears while the
corn is standing, that they may be sure
that tne ears selected are pertect in shape
and filling out, early in ripening, and grow
double. An improvement of ten per cent
only in the corn crop from judicious
selection of seed, would aJd a value of
hlty millions of dollars to the agricultural
income of. the country, and this is no
mean item. Hearth and Home.
Trrs last of August is the time to begin
earthing up celery that will be wanted for
use in October or November. The crop
aesignea lor winter use neea not be earth
ed up until later iu the season, for if
blanched too early It ill be neither as
good nor keep as well as that which is
blanched in cool weather. In earthing ud
some care is required to keep the soil on
the out ide of the head, and to do this the
operator should clasp the leaves and stems
in one nana, homing them together, while
with the other the earth should be drawn
around the plant and pressed firmly against
it a very little soil will sumce for this
purpose, and more can be added if requir
ed, when both hands are free to use the
hoe or spade. If the plants are not grow
ing as vigorously as required, then give
them a liberal supply of liquid manure
few days before the frst earthing up. Of
course the liquid should not be thick and
rank, for this would cause rust ; but let it
be strong, and then dilute with considera
ble water, so that the earth about the
plants may be well-soaked, and not merely
sprinkled. Celery intended for a late crop
should be frequently hoed during this and
next month ; and if the weather is dry,
water freely, adding some kind of stimu
lating manure, if necessary. Rural A'eie
Fish have great tenacity of life. It is
believed that carp has attained an age of
la J years, ana tne piKe a still greater age.
A pike was caught in a lake in South Ger
many, in 1827, on which was found a ring
bearing this inscription: "I am the fish
which was first of ail put into this lake by
the hands of the Governor of the Universe,
Frederic II., the 5th of October, 1230." It
weighed 350 pounds, and was 19 feet long.
In the artesian well being sunk in the
city park, San Diego, C&L, at a depth
seventy-five feet the workmen struck a bed
of clay embedded in which were petrified
whalebones ; at a depth of fifty feet petri

A Safe Dry Goods House. The Invalid--A Pen Picture.
See her pallid countenance, but a short
time ago the picture of ruddy health, the
envy of the school and the pride of the house
hold. She was always welcomed by her
schoolmates, for her lithe form and pleasing
disposition carried cheerfulness into their
ranks. Diligent, punctual and exemplary,
obedient and graceful at home, she won the
hearts of all. But, alas, we are sorrowed.
Those rosy cheeks and ruddy lips are
blanched by Consumption. The voice once
enchanting in laugh and song is feeble, husky,
and supplanted by a hollow cough. Let
approach her conch pontly and toko her hand.
Do not shudder because of the feeble and pas
sionless grasp. The hand once so hearty and
plump is emaciated, and shows long outlines,
while the cords and tortuous veins are plainly
mapped upon the surface. The pulse that
bounded with repletion, carrying vigor
the whole system and imparting life, beauty,
vivacity, health and strength, is delicate
the touch. The feeble heart cannot propel
the thin scanty blood with force. Must we
lose her while yet in her teens? Compan
ions and friends gather around with words
cheer and consolation, and depart with
moistened eyes and silent steps. Must we
lose her? 'o! there is relief! tYe can stay
this destroyer of our happiness and not suf
fer the loss of so bright a gem. Something
more is required now than dietary and hy gienic
observance, for nature calls fur aid and she
shall have it. Take this pleasant medicine.
It is invigorating. How it allays the Irrita
ble congh, improves the appetite and diges
tion, and sends a healthy tingle through the
frame. The blood is enriched, nervous force
increased, and the heart bounds with a new
impulse. See her face brighten by degrees
the color is returning ; her voice is getting
clearer, and pleasant words are spoken. The
strength falters yet, but' is gaining. Let us
take her out in the warm sunshine. . In
short time she will be able to go without our
aid, aTheerful girl. This delightful medicine
must be God-blessed. It is restoring health
to our loved one. She is emerging from her
sickness sweeter and nobler than before, and
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery most
have the credit. It has raised her. Sold by
