And Mr. Peters rose from the table in
temper by no means amiable, and rang the
bell violently. There was no answer. He
rang again, a third, a fourth time, and still
no answer! Oat of ail patience, he went
to the door and called "Maria! Maria!"
A slight, pretty little woman, dressed in
a soiled, ' tumbled wrapper, with nair in
state of direful confusion, answered his
summons. She had one of those bright
races which nature intended should be
decked with continual smiles; but now, all
its roses in bloom it was drawn to its full
length, and the large blue eyes had a ser
ious, or rather doleful expression, totally
at variances its usual joyous look. Her
voice, too, had lost its melodious, ringing
sound, and was subdued to a dismal whine.
"What is it. Joseph."
"Where's Bridget?" ' ' .'
"Gone out for me. ! want more white
ribbon for my ascension robe."
Mr. Peters said a very haughty word,
and then continued; "Gold coffee, hard
eggs, breakfast not fit to eat"
"I wish," whined the wife, '"you would
think less of temporal matters, and turn
your attention to the great end of life."
"Hang it alL madam, I like to enjoy my

Angling for a Dog.
We were traveling on ground we had no
right on. The only excuse was like ;hat of
a military necessity it was far better fish
ing through the farms, where the trout had
been preserved, than in the open lots where
all could fish.
It was early in the morning. We had
risen at three, ridden ten miles and struck
the creek as the trout were ready for break
fast Looking carefully for a sheltered
place to hitch our horses, we slyly ciept on
behind fences, etc, till we reached the part
of the stream not generally fished. A farm
house stood not a quarter of a mile away.
We saw the morning Emote curling lightly
from a stovepipe; saw a man and two boys
come out to do chores; saw a woman busy
about the door, and a ferocious bull-dog
wandering about the yard.- -
Xi ever we hshed close it was men. jsot
a whisper to disturb the birds or the own
ers or the land, we crawled tnrougn tne
grass and dodged behind clumps of elders,
lifting large speckled beauties out of the
water until our baskets were fulL
This was the time to have gone; but the
trout were so large and bit so readily that
we decided to &tringand hide what we had
and take another basketful. So at it we
went No sooner would the hook touch
the water than it had a trout We forgot
the house, the man, the boys the dog.
Suddenly there was a rushing through an
oat field as if a mad bull was coming. We
looked toward . the house, and saw the
farmer and his two boys on a fence, the
woman in the door, and the dog bounding
toward ns. We saw it all we had been
discovered! The well trained dog had
been sent to hunt ns out, and, as the mat
ter appeared, it was safe to bet that he was
doing that thing right lively.
To outrun the dog was not to be thought
of. There was no time to lose. He clear
ed a fence and came for us, just as we
reached a tree, and by great activity took a
front seat on a limb above his reach. Here
was a precious go ! A vicious bull-dog un
der the tree, and the farmer and two boys
ready to move down upon our works. It
was fight foot race, or fangs.
The farmer yelled to his dog, "Watcn
him Tige 1"
Tige proposed to do that little thing, and
keeping nis eyes on as, seated himself un
der "the tree.
Then spoke this ngly farmer man: "Just
hold on thar, stranger, till we get break
fast; then we will come and see you ! If
you are in a hurry, however, you can go
nowl watch him, iige s
We surmised trouble; quite tso much, for
thrice had that bold man of bull-dogs and
agriculture elegantly walloped innocent
tourists for being seen on his suburban
premises. His reputation as a peace man
was not good, and there arose a large neart
toward our throat
Time is the essence of contracts, and the
saving ordinance of those in trouble. We
had a stout line in our pocket, and a large
hook intended for rock bass, if we failed to
take trout And as good luck would have
it we had got a nice sandwich and a piece
of boiled com beef m our other pocket
We called the dog pet names, but it was
no go I Then we tried to move aown,
when he moved np ! .At last we trebled our
bass line, and fastened the limerick to it
baited it with the corn beef, tied the end of
the line to a limb, and angled for a dog.
Tige was in appetite. He swallowed it
and sat with his eyes on ns for more; but
with no friendly look beaming from his
countenance. Not any!
Then he pulled gently on the line it
was fast ! Tige yanked and pulled, but
'twas of no use !
We quickly slid down the tree almost
blistering our back doing it seized our
pole, and straightway went thence some
what lively. -
We found the string 01 nsn, and rescued
the buggy and a commanding spot in the
road in time to see - the sturdy yeomen
We saw him and his cohorts, male and
female, move slowly, as if in no haste. We
saw them look ud the tree. We saw an
anxieus crowd engaged about the dog.-We
came auicklv home and kindly left the
bass line and hook to farmer.
The White Mountains in May.
A visitor who paid his respects to Mount
Washington rather earlier than is custoni-
rv writes to a western paper:
One of the most signal adventures of a
life full of them has been the ascent of
Mount Washington in the early part of
May, before the winter fences and water
ways across the carriage road have been
taken down, when there are snow drifts

when the Summit House is just emerging

THE COOK'S STORY.
"No," I said; "go away." I always did
say that when they came a botherin' me in
the kitchen, those beggars. "No," I said,
but he would come in, and stand there a

"Jest the same old story," said I, "that

There go away. And fastening my
breastpin, that had a trick of coming un
done, I knew by that that I had it on. , It
was one I'd had given me, and it was worth
a great deal. It had belonged to a rich old
lady I waited on, and poor folks generally
don't have such pins. But he looked so
pitiful that my heart melted, and Bays I,

And then I went on with the pudding,
keepin my eye on the child. He was as
white as a sheet, and his cheeks as hollow
as a man's of eighty, and his poor little feet
were bare; and the tears would rise into my
eyes whether I would or not, and I felt
sort o' wicked for havin' spoken so at first
The short and long of it is, I stuffed hie
basket as full as it could be, and sent him
off stuffed full, too; and I went back to the
kitchen, and was feelin' quite contented
like, and as though I'd done my duty, when
teelin' somethin' queer about my collar, I
put my hand up and the pin was gone.
I looked all over the floor. It wasn't
there. I hadn't been out of the room, and
in a moment I knew who had got it It
was that beggar-boy. That came of har
borin' beggars for the first time in my life.
I jest pitched what I had in my hand on
the floor, 'Twas only a wooden bowl; but
Pd a done jest the same, I'm stopped out
of my wages. And out I went into the
street "Mr. Policeman," I cried, to one
that was jest agoing by, by luck, "catch
that beggar-boy. He's hooked my pin."
And I never saw nothing like the way that
big man strided up the street and
pounced on to that midge. He gave a
screech, and then began to cry; and all I
says to the policeman was: "Get back my
pin. That's all I care for."
Jjut tnat was easier said tnan aone. xne
pin was not to be found. He d thrown it
away, most lixeiy. Ana tnen 1 was in sucn

Next morning I went to court and told
my story, and the policeman said he had

It made it bo much tne worse, xi ne

half so bad. But as it was, I was glad to
see him punished, ana I a been gladder
still to have seen him hung.
When I went home, I felt better: and so,
finding myself hungry for the first time
since I lost my pin, I got out the cold pud
ding and a bit of meat, and sat down alone
by myself in the kitchen to eat them.

A Case of Mistaken Identity.
The Frankfort Yeoman is responsible for
the following story:
We had the pleasure of greeting yester
day, our friend. Colonel W. D. Lannom, of
Paris, Tennessee, who spent the day in
our city, it being his first visit to Frankfort
since 1860-1. when he represented the
ronnties of Hickman and Fulton in the
Legislature. His visit recalls an amusing
incident which occurred on the memorable
excursion of the Kentucky Leg-
islatuie to Cincinnati and Co
lnmbns at " the invitation of the
Ohio Legislature, just before the war,
while he was a member. Among the party
were Gen. Scott Brown, of this county, then
Adjutant General; Clinton McClarty, Clerk
ot the House, and Uen. uoo. u. noage,
then a representative of Campbell county,
Now it happens that Lanhom and McClarty

advanced to carry out their purpose, until
they were first apprised of their error by

To rid a house of ants, an exchange says
tuat all that is necessary is to procure a
large sponge, wash it well and press it dry,
which will leave the cells quite open; then
sprinkle oer it some fine white sugar, and
place it where the ants are troublesome.
They will soon collect npon the sponge
and take t.p their abode in the cells. It is

AMERICAN GIRLS' UNDERCLOTHES.
A foreign correspondent writes: There
was an article in a London paper the other I
day concerning American extravagance in
dress, which called attention particularly
to the underwear of American girls. Some
countesd, who had traveled witn several of
our countrywomen on the continent ex
pressed great astonishment at the fineness
and costliness of their underclothes. Hers
was thrown entirely in the shade by those
of her republican friends. She doubted if
the cambrics, linen and . laoes of the
Princess Royal exceeded in value those of
the girls she saw. She also spoke of their
outside laces and silks, the little apparent
value that was set on them. It is true,
then, in general, the American girl is
dainty in the choice of her inner garments.
This kind ot doming, ot tne most expen
sive make, is seen in the shops here em
broidered in intricate patterns and trimmed
with costly lace, and there is a ready sale
for it even at the high prices asked for the
HORTICULTURAL SCHOOL FOR WOMEN.
The Bostonians are greatly interested in
this enterprise. The Traveler says of it:
We are glad to learn that the arrange
ment for teaching women to be florists,
gardeners, horticulturists and farmers
generally, are so jar completed that a
school will probably be opened this month.
A nice, commodious house and two acres
of land, all well enclosed, have been se
cured at Newton Centre, on Beacon street;
a practical cultivator has been engaged to
give tne necessary practical teacmng;
while several competent lecturers have
volunteered to give instructions in botany,
vegetable physiology, and other subjects of
interest and importance to tne norucui
tnrist and florist A sufficient sum of
money has been secured to start with
though much more will . be required to
make the undertaking a permanent thing;
and a very considerable number twenty
or more women have applied lor admis
sion to the school already. It is not to be
a charity school, but Borne thirty or more
dollars will be charged per quarter for tui
tion, and there will be four terms a year.
Day scholars and boarding pupils will be
received, and tne board wui De as iow as
can possibly be afforded. It is proposed,
as we understand, to begin with raising

the right kind, and in the right direction.

Two girls from a high school went into
the country for vacation. An opportunity
was afforded them to learn something dor-

in a familv, the other to help a farmer
.through harvesting, it being difficult to
hire men. At the end of the vacation they
compared results. The housemaid had

paid two dollars per week. "The one in the

A Woman's Chamber Invaded by Robbers

Kicked and Dangerously Injured.
From the St. Louis Democrat, 24th.
An unusually atrocious piece of ruffian
ism was perpetrated at about ono o clock
Sunday morning, at the residence ot Mr.
O.ikes, between Fourth and Fifth streets.
Mr. Oakes' family, consisting, besides
himself, of his wife, two children, and his
wife's sister, occupyisg the upper part of
the house on the northeast coner of Tenth
street and Howard. The apartments are
entered from the rear, through the yard.
Mr. Oakes usually goes home early, but on
Saturday night went to the levee to await
tha arrival of a steamboat on which his
sister was expected. His family retired,
Mrs. uakes leaving the door unfastened
for his return, and a lamp burning in her
room. With her was her little boy, and
in a room above slept her sister and little
At about 1 o'clock Mrs. Oakes awoko as
t7o men entered the room, one a negro and
one a white man. She was probably awak
ened by their entrance, though they made
little noise in coming in. They had passed
into the rear yard, np the stairs, through
the kitchen, and were in her chamber. The
negro instantly sprang to her, siezed her by
the throat, and with his knee heavily press
ing on her body began choking her, bid
ding her to make no noise, to utter not a
word, but to point out to them where her
husband's money was. She fainted, and
the white scoundrel searched. He found a
pocket-book containing only some $30, at
which they were disappointed and became
enraged, and the negro fiercely threatened
her life, choked and beat and kicked her,
while his confederate searched the room. The
negro tried to pour some liquid down her
throat, but in the struggle the vial broke,
and the contents were spilled. At length
the miscreants dragged Mrs. Oakes from
the bed and through a window that was
close by, out upon the porch, she falling
upon her back and receiving additional in
juries. Here they struck ner till sue re
lapsed into apparent insensibility, when
they, probably thinking her dead, flung
her through the window upon the bed, but
leaving her head hanging over the window
silL Meanwhile, Mrs. Oakes' little boy lay
in breathless terror npon the floor, where be
had been placed by one of the dastards, with
threats of death if he made any noise. The
wretches fled, having awakened no one but
Mm. Oakes and her child.
They could not have been gone long
when Mr. Oakes came home. Passing np
stairs, he found the bedroom in darkness.
Groping for the lamp, he found it at length
beneath a pile of clothes, the wick turned
down, still burning, the chimney prevent
ing the clothes from taking fire. Turning
up the wick, the light showed him the
apartment in fearful confusion, his wife ap
a corpse, and bis child nearly as
lifeless with fright The sister np stairs
was called, the neighbors were aroused,
and a physician was summoned. Dr. Scott
came in and attended to Mrs. Oakes. She
remained nearly or quite insensible, with
swollen face and neck and bruised person,
and had apparently suffered severe internal
In the room were found a new razor and
the sheath of a bowie knife, left by the
Not until Sunday noon did Mrs. Oakes
regain consciousness, and then suffered so
acutely that opiates had at once to be ad
ministered. She was able, however, at in
tervals to tell her story.
It appears tnat the rumananad no object
but money. They must have had accurate
information of the family's affairs, and
doubtless took the opportunity of Mr.
Oakes' absence to attempt a robbery which
they expected would reward them. It is
to be feared that Mrs. Oakes' life will be
sacrificed by their wickedness and unname
able meanness. Her health was precarious,
and her present condition is critical.
Something about Wood. The consump
tion and waste of wood in the United
States every year is frightfully enormous,
if we care to look ahead of the present cen
tury. Railway sleepers alone require 150,
000 acres of the best timber every year. The
annual expenditure in wood for railway
buildings, repairs and cars is $33,500,000.
The locomotives in the United States con
sume annually $46,000,000 worth of wood.
The wood industry amounts to $500,000,
000. And yet all this is a mere cipher. At
nearly exery mill fires for burning slabs
are never allowed to die out, burning up
millions of cords that might be made avail
able if it could be got to market The
worst of all is, fires in the woods.
Every year these rage fearfully,
destroying the growing timber by the
thousand acres, not long since a Aiaine
man purchased five thousand acres of splen
did timber on the Menominee. Within a
year fire went through it, and every stick
was lost Strange to say, most ot tnese
fires which every year send destruction
broadcast through the timber, aro the result
of sheer carelessness. There is so much
timber that the lumbermen really delight
in wasting it, and enormous as the supply,
more is wasted every year tnan is Bent to
market In a few years, there is little
doubt but if the lumber men had this thing
to do over, they would be more careful.
In this connection, and to snow some
thing of the way lumber ia eaten up, one of
our Milwaukee lumbermen, who is deeply
interested in the preservation of the timber
of the country, and whose lands, owing en
tirelv to the care taken, have suffered only
inconsiderably by nre, toid ns a day since,
that a careful computation of tne matter
showed that the logs cut at one of his mills
last vear, if placed end to end, would
reach a distance of three hundred and fifty
nine and a half miles.

Stearn's Patent Eccentric Head Blocks
for Circular Saw-Mills.
We hope every person who sees this no
tice will read it carefully, and if not per
sonally interested himself, will call atten
tion to it To the casual observer it would
seem of little importance, but it is a mat
ter of vital importance to nearly everyone
in this country. We use the language of the
inventor himself in describing this
great improvement in the manufacture of
lumber. His invention was first patented
in 1856, and has been before the public for
fourteen years, and on tne 15th of April,
1870, the pa'ont was extended for seven
years longer. the construction of the
Head Blocks for a circular saw-mill is of
much more importance than many are apt
to suppose. The saw must run well to
make good lumber; but if, from any cause,
it inclines one-sixth or one-eighth of an inch
sideways, it matters not so much as to
have blocks which do not sot the logs accu
rately, for if the boards are set 3-16 or i of an
inch or more in thickness than others,
nothing will correct the error. Tho boards
will be sawed as badlv as they are set. But
on tbe other hand, if tbe saw is bo filed or
vet that it draws sideways, it does not snow
it so much in the lumber, as it ordinarily in
clines the same way every time. This can bo
corrected in the filing and setting.
To get a perfect hed block, many difficul
ties are to be overcome, apparent only to
those experienced in building and running
mills, and who have also devoted much atten
tion to learn the causes or and the remedy
for imperfect sawing. The accuracy of thick
ness deeiiable, can iiever be secured by me
chanical principles heretofore employed.
Neither the rack and pinion, screw, in
cline piano, or anv thing of the kind,
will give it A quick motion will give a thicker
board than a slow one. A light log will be
thrown farther than a heavy one. The twwt
ing of a connecting shaft, used in connection
with rack and pinion, or screw, increases the
variation; one part of the gearing gets
clogged with saw dust, while the other parts
are iree, another oauee or irregniariiy. inu
screw blocks are alow, laborious things.
There is no self-adjusting principle connected
with them. Tlte handle must be stopped
with precision.or there will be great variations
of thickness. Much time i- lost in adjusting
the thickness, and anything like accuracy is
out of the question. The cojjs in tho rack
and pinion blocks soon wear loose, and leavo
the knees free to be thrown too far
by quick movements of the lever, or to be
arred ana arawn iorwaru unuor iuu mouuu
of the saw with a light cant. Cogs also wear
very irregular one cog more than another.
The force of logs turned againet the knees
often break off the corners of the cogs, caus
ing great irregularity in the lumber. Tho
screws in screw blocks, with so much turn
ing under pressure to move the logs, wear
loose very fast, in two places, viz: The
threads in the nuts on the knees, and between
the collars where tbey are attached to the
frames. They soon get very loose, and per
mit the jarring of the mill and the drawing of
tbe saw to move the cants, as tney Decome

claimed for the Stearns Blocks, lies in the
delicate and nearly absolute mathematical
precision and uniformity in the adjustment
of tbe thickness.
This point of so much importance- :s secur-
ing lateral motions to the log, as to be reach

motion will be fastest when first started and
will continually decrease nntil it ceaes on
rcachi.-.g a dead oentrc. This gives a slow
movement when nearing the required thick
ness, and leaves no momentums for continu
ing the motion Deyona. xue aavaniage over
all resistance is complete. The heaviest logs
are adjusted with the same precision as the
Ugliest. The setting arms wora in pairs oue
advancing while the other is receding, so
that the log is set forward by tho back
ward as well as the forward motion of
the handle. This prevents a retrogade
motion of the log. It also doubles the pur
chase, making the movements light and easy.
This application of the eccentric secures a
mod perfect sflf-adjustment of thickness
without any troublo and dolay on the part of
the sawyer. So perfect is the eccentnc move
ment as to accuracy, that we do not gain or
lose the thickness of paper in sawing up a
large log. In the first place, we have the nelf
adiusting principle, giving such a slab as
wui leave a board at last neitnor ijo iuick
nor too thin; and then a we neither gain or
lose as mueh as the thickness of pawr iu
cutting up a log, the last board is sure to
como out right every time, inongn me
movement of tho handle be continued, the
knees cannot be thrown forward nearer
the saw than tho thickness of a board.
Thus the cants fir boards are sawed,
leaving cither a perfect board, or an
inch and a half or two inch plank, as the
sawyer chooses, without stopping even to
look at the blocks, and the last board as
quickly as any. The wear of the eccentrics,
or their journals, or the yokes, never causes
the least inaccuracy. The eccentrics have
plenty of surplus rise, and if they should
wear a sixteenth of an inch less, it could
make no variation in the setting not the
thickness of a greenback in sawing up a
whole log so perfect is the adjustment
made- by an eccentric on reaching a dead
center. TaperiDg lumber may do sawed, as
one block may be thrown out of gear while
tbe other is moving the difference. The
beauty jm. excellence of this
arrangement cannot be fully un
derstood without seeing the blocks,
and watching their operation on the
mill. The simplicity, directness and power
of the movement the evident durabiUtv of
tho blocks, and the ease, dispatch and per
fect accuracy in setting the various thick
nesaea in the dark pleases all who witness
them. The neat and uniform appearance of
the lumber, also, which is sawed on the Ec
centric Blocks and piled about the mills, sel
dom fails to arrest the attention of visitors.
Owners of planing mills know well that too
much is wasted in reducing lumber to uni
form thickness. The profits of lumbermen
in the United States are lessened annually
many millions ox dollars by unnecessary
waste frcm the use of imperfect mach nery.
Probably 3-16 of an inch is planed off in
dressing, when 1-16 ot an inch
should suffice. This is an unnec
essary waste of about one-tenth of the lum
ber. Suppose it worth $20 per ono thousand
feet, the loss is $2 per thousand feet in quan
tity from the logs. Then tuore is, at least,
M'per thousand feet in quality; for boards
sawed even will brin', at ieattt, $1 more per
thousand feet than as usually sawed. They
look better, and are better for every pnr
Dose. If only for a roof, the shingles will lay
better, and there is a saving of transporta
tion of unnecessary waste. Allowing, thus,
aBavingof$3 per thousand feet, it would
amount, per day, to 30, when sawing only
10,000 feet; 345 when sawing 15,000 feet; J
when sawing 20,000 feet and many mills saw
more than that daily. A mill sawing only
500,000 feet a vear would save $1,500; saw
ing 1.000.COO feet wouid save $3,000; saw
ing 5,000,000 feet would save $15,000 a year.
Many lumbermen lose hair ol the profits or
the business by poor head blocks,which waste
and spoil the timber. Some lose the whole,
and fail of success altogether from this cause
mainly. All may make money in good times,
but those having good mills will make the
moBt; and in hard times those who waste a
handsome profit by cheap mills, mav work
just as hard, and make nothing. Lumber can
bo sawed well on a good mill cheaper than it
can be sawe J badly on a poor one. It is a
thousand times better all around to sava the
unnecessary waste, and make a perfect ar
ticle. It is better for him who sells the trees
bv the thousand. If a tenth is saved ho
gets a tnth more for them. So for one who
stocks the mm for tbe iod; ne receives one-
tenth more for the same labor. So for the saw
yer sawing by the thousand; he receives one-
tenth more for sawing tbe same logs, he
gives good satisfaction and gets a reputation
as a oud rawyer. So fur the mill owner, who
saws for others; he rtemves one-tenth more
for sawing tho s.inio logs; gets a reputation
for his mill; it helps him to good contracts
and brings cnttoni to his mill; lnmber inspect
ors see the improvement in the lumber, and
influence null owners to get the Stearns'
block. Bui'ikra are glad to find lumber
sawed t:u-; it i so much getter for their
use. They pi'.troiiizf yards where they find
it: it is beUer f-r lumber dealers, they can
afford to pay more fr well sawed lumber
of the same quality than for that which
is badly sawtd it is more saleable,
gives good MUsfiiction, and draws custom
to their yards. They do net like, when hav
ing their boards dressed, for instance, into
flooring, in addition to the enormous waste
of thickness, to lose one board in ten because
the whole, or part of it, was left rough and
unsaleable, being too thin. It were better
for community, at present, if this waste were
saved, lumber would be both cheaper and
better, and the cost of building less. Our
noble forests, of pine especially, are fast dis
appearing by the present method of slashing
and wasting. It will be better for coming
generations, also, if the present do not con
tinue to waste anil destroy the bounties of
Providence. The lack of economy with the
multitude working at snch disadvantage,
with badly contrived miils, makes the price
of lamber higher and the qnaiity poorer.
Those may profit by this state of
things who will, hut it cau only be done with
such machicery as we describe.' Messrs. Lee
