Baby.
One Summer morning Baby came,
To 1st npon my breast ;
I kissed bar little face, and said,
"We have an angel gnest."
That Summer-tune wag glad and gay
With baby laugh and glee ;
The dearest thing in all the world
My darling wan to me.
Bnt when the froet-wmde touched the flowers,
lake them she dropped away.
And died within my folding arms
One aad, sad Autumn day.
We made her little narrow grave
Cloee by the garden-wall
It seemed that some time she would wake,
And for her mother call.
I planted rose and briony
Beside her grave in Spring,
And robins nestled there, and learned
Their little ones t sing.
It is a sacred spot to me,
Thit grave so green and low ;
Ah I Heaven cannot be far away
From Baby's grave, I know.
Farm, Garden and Household.
Ink Staiks. Ink stains may be re
moved from mahogany by touching them
with a feather dipped in a mixta re com
posed of a few drops of nitre and a
teaspoon ful of water. To prevent a
white mark being left, the spot must be
rubbed with a cleth wet in cold water the
moment the ink has disappeared.
Btttteb, Cheese aktj Milk. If sixteen
quarts of milk are reqnir d to make a
pound of butter, and ten quarts a pound
of cheese, and butter is twenty-five cents
, a pound and cheese twelve cents, it is
more profitable to make butter ; batter
yielding a fraction over one and a half
cents a quart, and cheese a fractionslees
than one and a quarter cents.
Moss ik Pastures ob Meadows. This
is always found on poor knolls or wet
- flats. The remedy in the first case is to
harrow until the moss is torn up, and
spread a load of manure and a little lime.
In the second place, drain off the waer,
and harrow and spread lime or plaster,
and salt or ashes. Get rid of the water,
strengthen the soil, and moss will be no
further trouble.
Vest Nice Fbtttft's may be made
by simply rolling the plain dough (after
it has risen of course) and cutting and
frying as doughnuts, to be eaten with
sirup or sauce. By putting a lump of
risen dough into a pudding hag, tying,
leaving room to swell, put into a pot of
boiling water, aud boiling an hour or
more, according to size, yon have an ex
cellent plain pudding, but it should be
eaten with rich sauce.
' Bofebs m Apple Tbees. E. F. D.,
asks Hearth r Home, if there is any way
to prevent borers from entering apple
trees. The best plan is to wrap the base
of the trunk with tarred roofing paper.
A piece a foot or more wide is wrapped
around the tree, the lower edge of the
paper extexding just below the surface
of the soil. Before this is applied the
trees should lie examined to ascertain
that borers have already entered. Should
any be found they must be probed out or
cut out.
Shexteb the Stock. The season has
arrived .when it is positive cruelty to
permit a aeast to stay out of doors for a
' single night A sense of justice to these
animals, which exist only for our use, if
he does not consult his own interest,
should impel every farmer immediately
to put every stable and shed on the farm
into proper condition, to fasten all loose
boards, close all open windows, and
make his stock snug and comfortable.
There's money in it too, as he will find.
Even his hens will lay better if kept
warm.
Feed fob Cattle axd Horses. A
thrifty animal will consume about three
Far cent of its live-weight in fodder daily,
or a cow of 800 pounds, twenty-four
pounds of hay should be provided. But
it has been abundantly proved that when
this hay is cut, wetted, and mixed with
the allowance of meal (two to four quarts)
eighteen pounds daily is ample to keep
an ordinary cow in good condition. The
difference then is the amount saved,
which is equal to one fourth. This
represents the gain in digestibility of
the food by the method of preparing it.
In practice the gain is greater, because
no waste . can occur in using ent feed,
while in using long hay much is always
wasted.
Babies in China. One of the first
things impressing a traveller in China,
says Jaroea Brooks, is the babies, the
countless babies. Girl babies, however,
alas for the poor things,are deemed rather
curses than blessings, more especially if
you have too many of them euch curses,
that ' often the little lasses aie tumUed
away to perish boy babies, never. All
the junks we passed, or saw, were more
or leas filled with babies naked babies
mixed np with the cocks, and hens, and
dogs, and kittens. Fathers were as often
fondling them as the mothers. This
love of babies it is that makes up the
Chinese countless, numbers, ever popu
lating the land, and forcing the poor
often to starve, or to live on kitten cut
lets and puppy steaks. What we saw
people eating most of, on oar boat jour
ney, was watermelons, pretty good ones ;
a species of cantelopes, that they nibble,
as monkeys would ; then peaches, that
nobody else could eat, they are so bad
with onions, onions, onions innumerable.
Indeed, the whole population hereabout
seems saturated with onions and opium.
Litigation. A case Castrating litiga
tion has just been concluded in a Massa
chusetts court Four years ago two
ladies were riding with about a dozen
others in a four-horse coach, on a pic
nic excursion in Ash field, when a de
fective bridge gave way and precipitated
the team, with the passengers, some
twelve feet into the stream below. Both
ladies were injured. The defect in the
bridge and the liability of the town
seemed undoubted. One of the ladies
offered to settle for $1,500, but the
selectmen refused. The matter went in
to court, and now after four years of
litigation the town is mulcted in the
sum of $16,135, and must besides pay a
large bill of costs for their own wit
nesses. The Russian Aemy. A despatch from
London says : The reorganization of the
Russian army raises the total field and
land wehr forces for war to 1,600,000 men,
and 51,000 officers, sixty-six regiments
of Cossacks not included. There is cre
ate d, further, a reserve force of 750,000
men and 35,000 officers. The new ar
tillery adds 1,000 guns to the old force.
This enormous change in the military
forces of Russia is masked under the
creation of landwehr, called local forces,
which nominally leaves the old army as
it was.
, Exaggeration. X., who is given to
exaggeration, made a statement one
evening at the table which was so fabu
lous that he felt himself that he had gone
too far. Turning to one of the guests
who seemed to be smiling slightly, he
said :'
" Ton don't believe that V
"Oh, yes," replied the other, "I be
lieve it because you say it but I should
not have believed it if I had said it my
self." Queuing a Riot. A bread riot recent
ly occured in a Persian town, the people
clamoring about the Vifrier, who, they
supposed, withheld food from them.
By way of appeasing the populace the
Shah had the Vizier put in irons, tied to
a donkey's tail and dragged bareheaded
and barefooted through the baaaar ; the
bead baker and several of his "hands"
were roasted alive in their own ovens.
Save Your Burned Trees.
Untold combers of valuable trees, both
fruit-bearing and ornamental, have been
destroyed by the devastating fires of the
West Yet in most instances, the vital
ity of the roots has not been impaired.
It may not be generally known that by
cut tine off the trees close to the surface
of the ground, before Winter, and cov
ering the wounds with a heavy coat of
grafting-wax, the life of he tree will be
preserved until next Spring, when most
young trees, and many large ones that
have been standing for more than a score
of years, will send up strong and luxuri
ant canes, which will grow rapidly into
desirable trees. Some varieties of ever
greens and some deciduous trees will
not sprout while fruit-trees of every
sort grape-vines, currant and berry bush
es of every variety, rose bushes and
valuable shrubbery, the tops of which
have been killed by file, will sprout
again, provided that the tops are cut off
close to the Ground before Winter. If
left until next Spring, the vitality of the
roots of many trees and many valuable
grape-vine will be impaire l to such an
extent that no sprouts win ever appear.
Apple-trees and pear-trees, six to ten
inches in diameter, which have been
burned to blackness, below the collar of
the tree should be removed with axes
and carpenter's adz until the live wood
and bark have been reached beneath the
surface of the ground. Small trees and
grape vines should be sawed off smooth
ly close to the surface of the earth ; and
if the wood has been injured below that
rjoint remove the soil, and continue to
cut off the heated portions until a live
surface is laid bare. Then apply a heavy
coat of warm grafting-wax, in a liquid
state, and before the wax has become
hard press a piece of strong brown paper
or a piece of any sort of cloth into the
wax, after which, cover tne stump wun
fine and mellow earth, several inches in
depth. Early next Spring remove the
soil, leaving not more man an men in
depth over the stump. A suitable graft
ing-wax for such a purpose may be made
of equal parts of tailow and resin oi any
Kind, or pitch. We have frequently
made it of one part of unseed oil,
minded with two parts of course, cheap
resin or pitch, heated in an iron kettle
nntil-the pitch is all dissolved, and the
mass is of the consistence oi turn tar.
It should not be applied scalding hot
Iu lieu of a paint-brush, employ a swab
made of a piece of course clotb wrap)ed
around the end of a stick. Veay few
young trees, and but a small proportion
ot crare vines and shrubbery have been
burned to such an extent as to injure the
wood below the collar of the main stem.
The Agricultural Bureau.
The report of the Department of Ag
riculture for October says the influence
of drouth and of the unusually low tem
perature of September has been unfa
vorable to the ripening of fruits, and to
the maturing of corn and other crops.
No general or serious damage has re
sulted to corn, a large portion of the
crop being well advanced by the high
temperature of August before frost
appeared. The drouth of Midsummer
has been almost unbroken in the West
up to the time of these return?, inter
fering greatly with the seeding of grain,
and with, the germination and growth of
what the farmers have been able to
plant
The present condition of corn, ex
pressed as a percentage, 100 represent
ing a good crop, is as follows : About
an average in New Hampshire of 111 ;
in Massachusetts of 103 ; in Rhode
Island of 101 ; in Connecticut of 105 ;
in New Jersey of 102 ; in Delaware of
108 ; in Maryland of 103 ; in Arkansas of
102 ; in Missouri of 112 ; in Ohio ef 106 ;
in Wisconsin of 108; in Minnesota of
110 : in Iowa of 114 - in Kansas of 119 ;
in Nebraska of 112.
The product of wheat as calculated
from county estimates, appears to be
about seven per cent less than last year.
The product of oats will be about as
large as the crop of last year. As a
whole, the quality of barley may be said
to be fully medium, and the quantity
very nearly an average. The buckwheat
crop is comparatively a poor one, the
average condition being low in nearly
all tne states, ine potato crop falls be
low an average. The number of beeves
reported is greater than usual in most of
the States ; Texas reports a reduction of
21 per cent from last year, Kentucky 2,
Illinois 2, Indiana 2, California 5.
Poke. Pork has . risen 3 cents per
pound, so the markets say ; and again
the question comes np favorably before
the farmer of feeding his corn to his
hogs, and calculating how much money
he can make. A Missouri farmer de
termined to try for himself practically
whether it would pay to buy hogs and
eed them corn bought in February.
Seven hogs, averaging 133 pounds, or
931 in all worth 5 cents per pound, or
$46.55, other expenses connected with
purchase being 86 cost $52.55. He fed
them corn for 77 days. At the end
ot that time they weit Led 1,700 pounds.
or a gain of 769 pounds an average of
iu pounds per day. i hey sold for 97.
75, or a profit over cost price of $45 20.
The corn fed during that time was 50
bushels, or 40 cents more than the corn
bad previously been' worth. The corn
crop of the West is now the most abun
dant known in ten years, and large quan
tities will be at a price of not over 25
cents per busheL This is so cheap that
it will tempt farmers everywhere to feed
it to their animals and convert it into
beef or pork. At this price any one can
doable their money very easily.
Insurance Companies. A correspon
dent says of the value of insurance stock :
When surprise is expressed that business
men should have had so mnch invested
in a single interest it must be remem
bered that for years and years our fire
insurance stocks have proved a most re-
namerative investment In a recent
law suit it became necessary to deter
mine tne present value of g!iu of stock
in one company, which was alleged to
have been misappropriated in 1851,
twenty years ago. A careful computa
tion by the value of the stock, with all
the dividends that liava been paid to
date at compound interest, showing the
enormous accumulation of $44,000.
And in the smaller companies equally
astonishing results have lieen attained.
Another company started in 1850 with a
chartered capital of 8200,000, only ten
per cent paid up. Since then the whole
capital has been made up by stock divi
dends and the handsome cash dividends
paid on the shares, which were quoted
at $140 before the fire.
Sticking to One Plan. Farmers get
discouraged sometimes by occasional
pints, low prices, and over-production.
Every one must expect this ; but it will
generally be found true that those farm
ers who expect only fair profits, who
aim to raise good crops, by taking good
care of a fair supply of farm animals,
and lay out a good plan and stick to it
year by year, through good or evil, will,
in the long ran, make the most money,
over those who shift their crops with
every tide of speculation. There is noth
ing so good as hanging on to the last.
Here is a good one on the " tater
bugs." Three men were comparing
notes. One says, ' There is twe bugs
to every stock." A second one says,
" They have cut down my early crop,
and are sitting on the fenee waiting for
the late crop to come np." " "Pshaw,"
said the third, "you don't know any
thing about it I passed a seed store
the other day, and the bugs were in there
looking over the books to see who had
purchased seed potato-. "
The Dry Goods Market.
In all departments of domestic goods,
says the New York Independent, prices
have continued firmer, though the busi
ness of the week has not been active ;
but the situation of affairs is well under
stood by both manufacturers and jobbers,
and there does not appear to be any ex
pectation on either side of a material
reduction of prices, except in some of
the undesirable styles of prints.
In unbleached sheetings and shirtings
the demand for standards has been lan
guid for home consumption, but more
activity for export The light weights
are in deficient supply. Prices remain
steady and unchanged.
In bleached sheetings and shirtings
there is an increased stock in first hands of
the best grades of standards, while of
the inferior makes there is a short sup
ply. But prices of all descriptions are
essentially uncnangea ana arm.
Printing cloths are a shade lower, with
less firmness in the market Some in
considerable sales of 64 staadards for
immediate delivery are reported at eft
cents.
In prints there is but a moderate de
mand. With an increase of price and
an accumnlation in first hands of the
less desirable styles, a diminishing bus
. - . . . ...
mess may be loosed lor until some re
duction shall stimulate purchases.
Ginghams are in the usual demand of
the season ; but tue sales are moderate
and prices unchanged.
Cotton flannels are selling steadily,
but the demand does not vary essentially
from what is usual at this season. Prices
are steady and unchanged.
In most descriptions of blue and col
ored goods the demand is light even for
the season, and sales are limited ; but
prices are firm iu ticks and st ipes, and
a more active demand is expected in
(roods of these classes.
Corset jeans are not in active demand,
and sales are to a moderate extent Prices
are steady and unchanged.
Cambrics maintain firm prices, from
the fact of there being a limited stock in
hrst hands ; but the sales are not large.
Rolled jaconets are in good supply,
but prices continue firm with moderate
sales.
Silesias are comparatively inactive,
and the supply in first hands is large ;
but prices continue firm and unchanged.
Muslin de laines are not selling so
freely as might be expected from the at
tractive quality of the goods offered, and
their comparative cheapness ; but prices
remain nrm and without change.
Jjinseys are in diminuhing demand,
and the sales of the season appear to be
nearly over ; but prices are unchanged
and steady.
Woolen shawls have sold freely all the
season, though for the past week the de
mand was languid ; but the fashionable
makes find a ready market and prices of
all kinds are steady. The less desirable
stvles, however, can probably be had at
a smnii reduction.
The business in cloth and overcoatings
is by no means active. The clothiers
buy very sparingly, and the jobbers on
ly to make up assortments. Prices are
not materially changed.
In fancy cassimeres there is a fair de
mand ; but the sales of the week have
been confined to a few desirable styles
tor tne city trade.
batinets are slow of sale and without
change in price.
.blankets have been in limited demand.
the sales being mostly confined to the
better qualities for city trade; but prices
are unchanged.
Ihe demand for flannels has somewhat
improved, and there is marked activity
in the better qualities. Prices are firm.
American linens undergo bat few
changes, and sales are more steady than
in any other class of domestic fabrics ;
bat they grow in favor, and the demand
is good at steady prices.
The Late Gen. Anderson.
General Robert Anderson died at
Nice, France. He had gone from Venoy
to Nice about three weeks ago, hoping to
receive benefit from the change. His
family were with him. His remains will
be brought by the United States vessel
Guerriere to this country for interment
(general Hobert Anderson has occupied
a prominent position in the history of
America, ana the news of his death will
be received throughout the country with
unfeigned regret He was born in Ken
tucky in 1806, graduated at West Point
in 1825, and on the first of July in that
year received his first commission as
brevet second lieutenant of Second Artil
lery. During the Black Hawk war he
was inspector-general of the Illinois
volunteers. In 1835-37 Robert Ander
son was assistant instructor and inspec
tor of the West Point Military Academy,
and during the Indian war in Florida he
was aide-de camp to General Scott For
his successful conduct in the Florida war
he received, in August 1838. the rank of
brevet captain. He accompanied General
Scott through the Mexican war until the
fall of the City of Mexico, partienlarly
distinguishing himself at the battle of
El Molino del Rey. His gallant and
meritorious conduct on this occasion was
rewarded by his promotion on the 8th of
September, 1847, to the rank of brevet
major. WTien Fort Sumter was built
Major Anderson was appointed com
mander of it and of all the works round
Charleston and for his defence of this
port was immediately promoted to the
rank of brigadier-general, and ordered
to the Department of Kentucky. Here
his health failing him he was obliged to
retire from active service. He grew
gradually more and more feeble until,
being advised to leave his home and
try the effect of change of air and scene,
be went to France, where, as the above
despatch informs us, he lingered until he
died.
How he Did it.
The Court Journal states that there is
at present in London one of the greatest
sensations of American perseverance
and confidence in self which has ever
been beheld even amongst the persever
ing and self-confident people of that
country. This gentleman, now ranking
amongst the highest and most distin
guished authorities of the United States,
the guest of princes, and the counsellor
of diplomatists, is a barrister of high
standing, who left his humble and re
tired New England home at the age of
eighteen, with thirty dollars in his pock
et and a paper sewn up with thread
made of hemp of hit. father's own sow
ing, and his mother's own spinning.
Outside the paper was written, " To 1
opened in 1864, or at my death, should
I die before that time." The paper was
opened on the night mentioned, and
found to contain these words, written in
a large, school-boy hand, " This day I
leave my father's house with thirty dol
lars in my pocket to seek my fortune,
and here do I take a solemn vow before
God, to foreswear all gambling, smok
ing or drinking, or any self-indulgence
which can stand in the way of my firm
determination to advance. Henceforth
my motto must be. ' Push ! ' " The vow
was registered in Heaven, and the New
England boy has changed his thirty dol
lars into thirty millions, if report spseak
true, by sheer industry aided by great
talent and spotless reputatiou.
The Veils. All the new veils for
brides are trimmed with vines of lilies
of the valley, with small jessamine.
This makes them very beautiful and
costly, but so heavy that a bride during
the reception is sometimes forced to en
dare the most terrible suffering from
the awkward way in which the hair
dresser has arranged her hair and veil
The Mormons are just now making
savage love to their first wive. The
design is to keep them so contented that
they will refrain from lawsuits.
Grace among the Mormons.
Grace Greenwood, who has been among
the Mormons thus speaks of them :
You hear a good deal about that
'cross," from both Mormon husbands
and wives, but you only see the shadow
of it in the faces of the women. I do not
mean to intimate that they all look de
cidedly unhappy. There is rather in their
faces a quiet, baffling, negative and ab
negative expression, which certainly is as
far from happy content as it is from des
perate rebellion. Naturally, they are
more alive to the outside pressure of
public opinion, more sensitive to the
obloquy and ostracism which their posi
tion provokes, than men. Patient and
passive as they seem, they feel these
keenly the more intelligent among
them, at least and though upheld by a
sincere, devout faith in this strange delu
sion, they have toward strangers a pecu
liar air of reticence, of mistrust almost of
repulsion. I do not wonder at it their
hospitality and confidence have ofteu
been abused they have been intruded
upon by impertinent interviewers, and
their reluctant answers to persistent
questioning published abroad, with
startling additions and dramatic embel-
ishment Those I have met appear to
me, 1 must say, like good and gentle
Christian women. They are singularly
simple in dress, and modest in demeanor.
What saddens me is their air of extreme
quietude, retirement and repression.
But for the children around them you
wonld think some of them were women
who had done with this world. I am
told that the wives of even the highest
dignitaries show little pride in their lords.
It were perhaps difficult to feel much
pride in the sixteenth part of a man, as
men go. Even the first wife of a wealthy
saint betrays in her husband and house
hold, they say, no exultant joy of posses
sion. An investment in a Mormon heart
and home mast be rather uncertain stock
for a woman. I am assured, though,
that the second wife is seldom taken
without the full consent of the first Not
only are the poor woman's faith and zeal
appealed to, but her magnanimity toward
her sister-woman out in the cold. It
must he through great suffering that
such heights of self-abnegation are
reached. The crucifixion of the divine
weakness of a loving woman's heart must
be a severe process. But there is some
sorry comfort in the thought that for
these poor polygamous wives there is
no wearing uncertainty, no feverish
anxiety that they are spared the bitter
est pain of jealousy,the vague nightmare
torture of suspicion, the grief and horror
of the final discovery, the fierce sense of
treachery and deception. They know the
worst Perhaps it is the " dead certain
ty" that gives them the peculiar cold,
8 till look I have referred to. As to the
Mormon men whom I have met mostly
leaders in the Church, and prominent,
well-to-do-citizens, I mnst say that they
look remarkably care-free and even jolly
under the cross. Virgil, I believe, has
somewhere the expression, " O three
times and four times happy !" Well,
that is the way they look.
Alice Cary's Love.
Mary Clemmer Ames publishes the
story of " Alice Cary's Love," as confid
ed to her by that lady for the purpose of
being made public if false reports con
cerning it continued to circulate. The
beloved object was not as frequently
stated, Ruf us W. Griswold, though there
was an intimacy with him, growing out
of the aid he, as a literary man, render
ed her when she first came to New York
to live by her pen. She never liked him.
though when he was broken down she
hired a room and a nurse for him through
his long and painful illness. Hence the
repoit that she had nursed him herself.
The real story of her love is faintly
shadowed forth as follows :
" In the profoundest sense. Alice Cary
never loved but once. The man whom
she loved is still alive ; yet gossip, with
its keenest scent has never found or
named him. With all her fulness of
affection, hers was an electric and soli
tary soul He who by the very patent
of his being was more to her than any
other mortal could be might pass from
her life, but no other could take his
place. A proud and prosperous family
brought all their pride and power to
bear on a son to prevent his marrying a
girl uneducated, rustic and poor.
" 1 waited for one who never came
back"' she said. "Yet I believed he
would come till I read in a paper his
marriage to another. Can you think
what life would be loving one, waiting
for one who would never come ! "
" He did come at last I saw him. His
wife had-died. Alice was dying. The
grey-haired man sat down beeide the
grey-haired woman. Life had dealt
prosperously with him, as is wont with
men. buttering and death had taken all
from her save the lustre of her won
drous eyes. From her wan and wasted
face they shone upon him full of tender
ness and youth. Thus they met with
life behind them they who parted
plighted lovers when life wasyoung. He
was the man whom she forgave for her
blighted and weary life, with a smile of
parting as divine as ever lit the face of
woman.
Cope Cod Mackerel Fishing.
A Cape Cod correspondent of the Bos
ton Watchman and Reflector writes of
Mackerel fishing as follows :
The lines, of which each man manag
es twe, are all thrown from the starboard
side of the vessel, this being, perhaps,
because the fisher-men of Galilee once
met with remarkable success when they
" cast the net on the right side of the
ship." In regard to the time of fishing,
we are at the mercy of the capricious
mackerel themselves. Sometimes they
come promptly " alongside " and remain
there for several hours, while again we
hear many times in a day the prepara
tory " heave to," but not followed by
the more quickly spoken " fish, ho ! "
and the exciting drumming in the emp
ty barrels of the newly-taken fish. But
when they bite rapidly, the sport is live
ly enough, and each man has to look
well to his lines. We three " greenies "
stood side by side, and sometimes when
the lively mackerel on our hooks would
dart, about like a weaver's shuttle, it
would result in all six of our lines being
drawn in by one of the party in a state
of entanglement very trying to one's pa
tience. Ibis the " old salt very appro
priately denominates " quilting." On -e
drew in a fish and was about to strike
him off iuto my barrel when I found
that both my neighbors' lines were
wound securely around the tail of the
flsli, which caused a strong tendency
towards the next barrel. Between as
both the poor mackerel had a hard time
of it for it was not until we cut off his
tail that my friends' lines would give up
their hold npon him, Such vexations
the experienced fisher-man avoids.
A Bust Place. Every carpenter or
mason in Chicago can now earn from
three to four dollars per day, every
laborer two dollars, every half-grown
boy one dollar, every woman capable of
doing nousenoid work from two to three
dollars per week and her board, either
in the city or country. Clerks and per
sons unaccustomed to out-door labor, if
they cannot find such employment as
they have been accustomed to, must take
such as is offered, or leave the city. Any
man, single womar, or boy, able to work
and unemployed at this time, is so from
choice, and not from necessity.
An item in a Kansas paper informs
the public that "Mr. of Missouri
got to owning horses that didn't belong

The Building Societies of England.
These societies have become to be an
important featuaw in the labor reform
movements there, and are closely iden
tified with the improved industrial life
of the kingdom. In spite of aristo
cratic opposition, a middle class is con
stituted thereby which will be the
strength, perhaps the salvation of the
nation. The value of the dwellings
which, through these societies, have be
come the property of workingmen, is
estimated at 81,000,000,000. A great
many of these societies are called Bow
kelt societies, from Dr. Bowkelt who
originated them. The fundamental
principle is that by a certain arrange
men men uniting together can realize
in the first instance the same amount of
interest for their own saving that they
are accustomed to pay for the use of
other people's money ; next, that they
can practically obtain one-fourth more
than that rate of interest, and next, that
the rate of interest is compound interest
The result is, that while ordinary men,
out of their savings can secure very lit
tle indeed, throughout their whole life
time, if they are poor, yet if those small
earnings accumulate at high rate of
compound interest, it is sufficient abso
lutely to emancipate any of tbem, or all
of them, from poverty. In Birming
ham alone 13,000 houses belong to the
workingmen through this agency, and
there are streets more than a mile long
whereon every house is the property of
the working classes. The society d"8
not build hduses, but lends the money
to a member to build. The streets are
all drained, and every man is bound to
drain into the main sewer. The society
advances on the certificate of the sur
veyor as the work proceeds, alwjys tak
ing care not to advance too mnch. If a
man goes to a sale and buys by auction,
the surveyor goes with him bv order of
the committee, and a charge is paid if
he buys the property ; but if he gives
more for it than the surveyor has valued
it at he must find the surplus himself.
These Birmingham societies also serve
as banks of deposit A servant girl can
put away 50, draw thereon ten shillings
a year, aud at a month s notice get back
every cent with interest up to the time
the notice was given. A great love for
freeholds exists in Birmingham, and
thousands of working men possess them.
The great object of the land society is
to buy a large estate : to buy land whole
sale, and sell it to the members retail at
the wholesale price. Thus, the society
gave lately 33,000 for one estate, and
divided it, after draining it into nearly
500 allotments. ' The first thing we do,"
says the secretary, " is to have a plan
made of the land ; then streets are made
and drained, foot-roads are paved and
curbed, and gutters are formed, and so
on, and whatever it costs is added to the
original cost of the land."
Expense and Profits of Hotels.
outlay to start a first
class hotel in New York or any large city,
is the cost of the building itself and its
furniture. The actual running capital
need not be large, and the establishment
itself if it is sufficiently imposing will
b? its own advertiser. From $15,000 to
$20,000 cash in hand would le sufficient
for repairs and daily expenses, even in
the largest hotels, as the business is all
cash, and there are rarely any long out
standing accounts. A large capital, how
ever, is required in the beginning.
Every one knows the enormous cost of
building lots on leading throughfares,
while the building expenses are not much
less expensive. Any one of the leading
hotels, of New York such as the Astor,
Metropolitan, St Nicholas, and Fifth
Avenue are worth a million dollars, land
and building inclusive as they stand,
while it is reported that 00,000 was
laid out on furnishing the latter alone.
r rom these figures some idea may be
gained of the amount needed to open a
first-class hotel. The profits npon this
capital when it is well employed are nat
urally very large. The annual earnings
of the Fifth Avenue Hotel have been said
have averaged $200,000 since it was open
ed, while the income of a number of
other hotels have exceeded 20 per cent
upon the sum invested. Among our
hotel proprietors will be found not a few
men of great wealth, while the incomes
of the whole body of those engaged in
the business would probably reach a very
high average.
The Next Comet. Enck's comet is
now on its way towards the perihelion,
which it will reach in January next
The comet has been telescopically visible
for some tune, but it is not an object of
special interest to those whose vision is
unaided by instruments. It has a very
short period only three years and a
quarter. The least distance from the
sun is 32,000,000 of miles, or about the
average distance of Mercury. The
greatest distance is 887,000,000 of miles
or more than four times that of the en rtb.
This comet is principally of interest be
cause its period of revolution has di
minished to the extent of about three
days in the past eighty years, a fact
which is generally accepted as furnish
ing the best proof of the theory that the
regions of space are filled by material
" ether capable of retarding the mo
tion of the bodies composing the solar
system. Of course this resisting medium
would produce annual effect upon the
comet of a few tons in weight that would
not be experienced by our earth in the
course of thousands of ages. Bat the
result though long deferred, is none the
less inevitable earth, planets and com
ets will be eventually precipitated into
the sun.
Morning Driyes.
Take a ride in the morning. Say what
you will of the after part of the day,
there is nothing else like a ride in the
early morning.
In these Autumn days, when the air is
crisp and bracing, a ride in the morning
pats new life into your veins.
Of course it mast be behind a lively
horse. We do not suppose a ride with a
yoke of oxen would be very inspiriting.
Who ever gets up ana goes out eariy
for a single morning, without resolving
that he will never lie in bed late again ?
Many persons experience fatigue and
exhaustion from exercise in the early
morning ; but it is because they tike it
before breakfast and on an empty sto
mach. This consequence is easily avoid
ed by taking a cup of coffee, or some
thing, however light before going out ;
and the drive gives an excellent appetite
for breakfast after your return.
The early bird catches the worm.
The early drive catches health, strength,
rosy cheeks, and a rosy view of things
in general.
Incidents of the Gbeat Chicago Fire.
Alfred L. Sewell, one of the most
widely known publishers of Chicago, is
collecting Incidents of the Great Fire, to
be published by him, in book form, at
the earliest possible day. Mr. Sewell's
printing establishment and business were
entirely destroyed, leaving him at liberty
to give his whole attention, for the pres

thrilling interest Mail to him now, at

Proclamation by the President.
By the President of the United Stales :
A fboclaxation.
The process of the seasons has again
enabled the husbandman to garner the
fruits of successful toil. . Industry has
been generally well rewarded. We are
at peace with all nations, and tranquility,
with few exceptions, prevails at home.
Within the past year we have in the
main been free from ills which elsewhere
have affected our kind. If some of ns
have had calamities, there would be an
occasion for sympathy with the sufferers ;
of resignation on their part to the will of
the Moat High, and of the rejoicing to
the many who have been more favored.
I therefore recommend that on Thurs
day, the 30th day of November next the
people meet in their respective places of
worship, and there make the usual ac
knowledgments to Almighty God for the
blessings he has conferred npon them
for their merciful exemption from evils,
and invoke His protection and kindness
for their less fortunate brethren, whom,
in His wisdom, he has deemed it best to
chastise. In faith whereof, I have here
unto set my hand and caused the seal of
the United States to be affixed. Done
at the City of Washington, this 28th day
of October, in the year of our Lord,
1871, and of the independence of tba
