Mr. Linden' house wns situated on a
ereat of rising ground, ubotit a mile distuut
from an old aunport town. It commanded
yaribty of scenery, which mut have sat-
Klled the most difficult taste. The house
faced the north, trootius the broad bav.
which swept into the oinin sea. ltutwrntn
the bay and the house a broad expanse of
levet ground extended lor miles along the
coast On the southern side were richly
wooded slopes, with stretches of meadow
between whore, in the season, the ripened
gruln waved liko a billowy sea. The east
side commanded a view of the town; here
distance lent its usual enchantment to the
Siotnre. Midway botween the town and
. t Ir. Linden's house, stood the gray church
which Mr. Linden, with his wife and dtuiob.
ter, always attended, and where two or
' tnree gctmmtioas of Jim Linden's family
were buried. The white columns which
marked tho graves of Mrs. Linden's par
ents, and one daughter, who bad diud
young, were on a clear day, who bad visi-
uie iruin tuc nonso.
The montli passed rapidly, ns the months
always do when jMiople are absorbed. Marie

and a man that her parents would have

waltz, and the rapid whirl of the walUers,
as they floated post the open window,
where I stood gazing atteutivtly upon the

a perceptible shudder ran through her

"1 was reading the Words," she said.
"What words. Marie?" I answered. "Yon

fche replied, "I am spenking of the third

What the People Want.
No crent tmhlio want can long remain
unanswered. When a condition of tilings
has become developed so thnt a great pub
lic wnnt i realized, either in tbeology, oivil
government or physic, that very wnut or
demand is sure to creato a supply. The
hour will creato tho man, and the neod the
thing. Witness tho sewing machine, the
rcnDor. the telegraph. Thero may bo sev
eral abortions. Mirny may run before they
are sent, but ultimately humanity will
triumph, and tho want bo supplied.
It cannot lie thnt medicine will long re
main whnt it has been a mass of intrica
cies, of which they who know most know
littlo, while the confident pretender is mire
to be a knavo. Norwill it be always a sys
tem so intricate and obscuro that only the
priests of tho templo can speak it lan
guago or interpret its symbol; or an oraclo
so equivocal that ho who consult tho priest
fares aa ill or worse than he who abjures
the temple altogether. Thoro must ero
long be u syatem that come down to tho
wnnt of humanity in evory day lifo that
moots the want of the mother nt her
cradle, the nurse at the bedside, the father
on hi journey, or the sailor ou the sea
some thing or some system that everybody
can have nnd everybody can nse, to arrest
the first invasion of disease, and to restore
the ruddy current of lifo ere iu fountuins
are vitiated and its force undermined.
Old school medicine, with its crudo drug
poison, can never meet this want Thut
is a game long since plnved out, a thing
well understood. Equally futile the vaunt
ed pauucea and elixir which ig
norance has begotten and folly pa
tronized. The wator-enro can never be
more than a doubtful expedient or useful
nulutive in tho baud ot the people. Nor
can tho usual form of Homeopathy, how
ever large us domestic manual, or com-
filote its assortment of tinotures ami pel
eta, be more than an amusing pastime in
the hand of tho people. The system was
never designed for such nso, and can never
on audi a piuce.
But it is contonded that HrMpnnEy's sys
tern of Specifio Homeopathy doe meet
this want. In a small ueut enso are com
prised some thirty Specific Remedies for nil
the more common complaint to which a
mmiiy are suineet. and the whele are ao ar

then may not this great problem be consid

The White Pine Reaction.
From the San Francisco Chronicle, June 4.
i Tho first flush of tho White Fine excite
ment baa died out. The grand rush for the
new Hilvorado bu exhausted iUelf, and tho
reaction bn set in.1 Extreme meet.' From
one extreme we rebound t" the other. In
bending the crooked stick straight we
crook it the other way.' A littlo while ago
White Fine wa the riches mining district
in the whole hlbitnblo globe, and every out)
who started for the new mining region was
in the siiro wny of realizing a sure fortune.
Now White Vino seems to be in tho voca
tive, aud there are dew who feels disposed
to invest. ' But ao fur as the facts ale known
there seem to be no good ground for
this reaction. In fact, White Vine is doing
marvelonsly well. With only seven mills iu
operation, running altogether aliont fifty
stamp, au enormous amount of silver is
forwuided from White Vine. Heretofore
the mill have chnrgod tho enormous rate
of I.'hJ per ton for crushing oro. They have
now como down to f25. This reduction
will tend to increase tho amount of silver
produced inasmuch ns many miners, who
"struck paying ore," have suspended oper
tion until the price ol crushing ore should
come down, Others having satisfied them
selves that they had a good mino, waibcd
for an opportunity to sell it in preference
to working it.' Iheso aro circumstance
that have helped to produce a reaction in
regard to White Vine, but, meantime, the
amount of ore received, from thut ouarter
clearly pruves that, though the richness of.
me mine may navo been cxaggoroted at
one time, the present tendency iu to uuder-
rnio ruther man pvorruui mow. . f ,

In London a yoorjg Englishman I eon

"We went lo tho fltghf, fearing that out
sense of refinement would bo shocked, but
found, upon entering the rooni, a tastefully
decorated apartmont, and several Indies
with their children admiring the household

A Little Man.
Perhnps tho most remarkable dwarf of
wbicb thero In any record, in ancient or
modern times, I Count Joseph. Jlorulwns
ki, born in Volish Russia in 173'.). Hi
pnronU were of the medium size, aud had
a family of six children, five sons and one
daughter. Three of the former, whon full
grown, exceeded the middle stiituro; but
the other two and tho daughter attained
only that of children of about the ago of
four year. At tue tuno of Joseph birth
he measured oaly 6 inches in length; but
he was neither weak nor defective; and
hi mother, who Ruckled hiiu herself, fre
quently stated that none of her children
gave her lens tronblo tlmn- he. Hi Bis
ter, Aunstusia, seven year younger, is
represented by him, in bis Memoirs, as
so short that she could stand under his
arms. She wan a perfect model of sym
metry nnd beauty, having a lively and
cheerful temper and a'feollugandbenificent
heart. At tho age of tiltoon, beiug only -5
inches high, ho was presented to the Em
press Theresa, who on one occasiun took
him on bor lap, caressed him, and asked
him what ho thought wa most curious and
interesting at Vienna. He answered that
he had seen many thing worthy of admi
ration, but nothing Deemed so extraordi
nary a that which he then beheld. . "And'
what is thut?" inquired her Mujoety.
"To seo so littlo a man on the
lap of so groat a woman," replied
liorulawski. The Empress then wore a
ring on which wa her cipher in brilliant.
Hi hand being in .hers, looked attentively
at this jewel, she asked bim whether tho
cipher wa pretty.- "I beg your Majosty a
pardon," replied Borulawski; "it l not
the ring that 1 am looking at, but the band
which I bosoech your permission to kiss;"
at the same time raising it to hi lips. The
flattered Empress thereupon took a very
lino diamond ring from the finger of
Marie Antoinette, then a child, aud put
itonBoruhtwskyi. The notice of the Em
press procured him the attention of tho
whelo court, and the marked kindness of
Count Kuunitz. by this time tho littlo
man was about 2H inches high, could bear

to his size, possessed meutul euergy aud

man nnd French, wn ingenious iu every
thing he undertook, lively in hi repartees,
and just in his reasoning.

passiou, hi first lovo being un actress,
whom he wished to marry, but who
laughed at him. Tho socond wn a voum
French lady, I-alina bartubun, whom, after
much opposition from hi patroness,
Counto Humieckn, he married. Being in"
formed, in a few week after his marriage,
that he wa likely to become a father, nud
being somewhat impecunious, it wa sug
gested that a second visit to tho court of
Europe would ennblo him to procure the
means of leading a life of comfort. Tho lung
supplied him with a convenient carriage.
