A BITTER FACT.
HOW A PROMINENT BUSINESS MAN
WENT TO RUIN.
It is1 but a few years since,
says the Chicago journal, that
the house of Bennett Pieters &
Co., wholesale liquor dealers,
and proprietors of the "Red
Jacket Bitters," stood hiVh
among 011? best-known, most
enterprising and - responsible
firms. In almost every pajier
in the country their advertise
ments were to be seen. Mr
Pieters was a man of fine abili
ties, and besides being shrewd
and successful in business, he
wa possessed of superior schol
arly attainments. His home was
the most elegant and
refined in the city, adorned in
thtj most chaste and beautiful
manner, and gracefully pre
sided over by his wife, an esti
mable, accomplished lady.
yjiiie in tlie lull tide of pros
perity, with wealth pouring up-
on him, Pieters fell. He could
net resist the temptation offered
by the demon concealed be
neatb the rosy hue of the wine
cun, aud his
ip, aud Jus imagination
was
heightened and his brain
ex-
hilarated
by the sparkling
champagne or his own bitters.
1 . .
The high reputation of his firm
began to feel the effects of his
downward course, and finally
came the crash. Pieters was
ruined ; he struggled vainly for
a time, but the power of the
fiend with which, he had so
long tampered was too great,
and nerveless, and unresistingly
he was hurried to the consum
mation of his career. His ele
gant home soon followed his
business house ; rich and valu
able presents made to his fam
ily were swallowed up in the
general ruin, or went to gratify
still more his unceasing thirst
for drink, until at last he and
they were homeless aud well
nigh friendless. A few months
since ho enlisted in the United
States service as a private sol
dier, and is now with his regi
ment somewhere on the great
Plains of the West. His broken-hearted
wifo has filed a
petition for a legal , separation
from him, alleging that she has
been reduced to utter poverty
and misery through her hus
band's lovo of intoxicating
drink. The 'story of her mis
fortunes is indeed heartrending,
and if anything were yet needed
to urge on the friends of tem
perance and reform it would be
found in the terrible fate of
Pieters and his innocent family.
In .1857" the Delaware &
Hudson Canal company sued
the Pennsylvania Coal com
pany for transportation. That
suit has been pending fifteen
years, and is just now decided
by the New York Court of Ap
peals, to which Court both par
ties had appealed ' from tho re
port of a referee.. The testi
mony taken beforo the referee
filled ten large printed volumes,
giving to tho referee, twenty
thousand dollars fjr his fees.
Tho whole amount of taxable
costs reached nearly two hun
dred thousand dollars. Verily,

How to Read.
Thomas' Wentworth Higein-
son says, m a recent number of
the Woman's Journal:
I was , once called upon ' to
prescribe intellectually for a
young girl of fair abilities who
showed no want of brains in
conversation, but had a perfect
indifference to books. She read
dutifully and torpidly whatever
was set before her novels,
travels, . history all Were the
same ; each page drove out the
previous page, and her memory
was a blank. . Her parents ask
ed me to teach her to read : she
joined in the request, and I
consented to tho experiment,
on condition that she would
faithfully read a single book in
tne way 1 should direct. She,
consented.
It was in the time of
Kossuth's visit, when every-
oouy was taming about the
Hungarian revolution. The book
I chose was "Hungary in 1848,"
by Bruce, of far more interest
then than now I prescribed it
in daily doses of one chapter.
If possible she was to read that
the chapters being short-
but under no conceivable cir
cumstances was she to read
more. After each chapter she
was to put down in a blank
book I gave her, some remark
suggested by it. She must men
tion something that had in
terested her, or seen the expla
nation of some word, or any
thing else she pleased. Her
comment might be only to sav
that Gorgy was a traitor, or tn
inquire how his name should be
pronounced ; but at least there
should be one sentence of re
mark per chapter. From time
to time I was to see what she
had written, and answer her
questions, if any. This was
the prescription, and she took
it courageously.
1 knew in advance what
would be tlie greatest difficulty.
it was to keep her to one chap
ter. It seemed to her such a
mistake, such a waste of op
portunity, when she could
easily manage live or six chap
ters in a day. Had she done
so, all would have been lost; so
I was inexorable. The conse
quence was that she never fail
ed to read her chapter; and when
she got to the end of it, for
want of anything better to do,
she read it over again, or went
to work with her note-book. It
was a very nice note-book, and
she wrote a beautiful hand.
When I came to look over the
pages, every lew days, I was
astonished at the copiousness
and variety of her notes. Ou
some days, to be sure, there
would be but a single sentence,
and that visibly written with
effort; but almost always there
were questions, doubts and crit
icisms, all of which, I met as I
could. I found my own mind
taxed by hers, and finally re
read every chapter carefully
that I might bo ready for her.
And at the end she told me
with delight that for the first
time in her life she had read a
book.
Where was the magic of the
process ? I suppose mainly in
the, restraint the moderate
pace, and the necessity of
writing something. "Heading,"
says my Lord Bacon, "maketh
a lull man ; , writing, an exact
man." To clearly define and
systematize what you know,
write.
Hints on Shopping.
It is poor economy or,
rather, no economy at all to
purchase inferior fabrics because
they are cheap. Persons in
limited, circumstances often
commit this error. If a calico
at ten cents a yard looks about
as well as one of twelve or fif
teen cents, the prudent pur
chaser will often think it econ
omy to choose the low-priced
goods. As it is low-priced, she
may indulge in a yard or two
more for ru flies or bias folds,
flattering herself that cheap or
namentation is an equivalent
for fine quality. This mistake
may be seen permeating the
entire wardrobe of many sensi
ble people, lho result is sim
ply this: they never have any
thing of really good quality, are
always shabby, and always buy
ing. None but rich people can
aflbrd to buy poor goods. This
rule applies to all sorts of goods
i .
muslins; cloths, carpets and
table linen'. We grudge the
time we see women spend in
making up muslins of low grade
for underclothing. There are
so many stitches . in- a shirt!
And when it lasts pne year' in
stead of two, as it should, there
is just twice as much work done
as need to be. , Better make
three shirts of fine quality mus
lin than six of a lower grade of
muslin. ; :Just so. in flannels,
A nlty-cent all Wool ' Shaker
flannel will wear' two or three
times as long as your .flimsy
cotton ana wool ; stull : a 'few
pennies cheaper; : Especially
in a family of children, fabrics
should be chosen for service
that when made .'up they may
uescena ironi, one , child to- an
other, thus- saving the mother
time to ' stitch : into her tfaiii a
little embroidery of thought and
culture. A few rules with re
gard to shopping itself may be
in place. First Have a list of
articles to : be purchased made
out in black and white. By
this means you will be saved
from sudden temptation to buy
what is not really necessary,
and forget nothing that you re
quire. Second Deal only with
merchants in whose business
integrity you can confide. Third
In the long run one always
does better to buy at one and
the same place than run about
for the purpose of hunting up
bargains. A regular customer
can often get favors denied to
an occasional purchaser. Fourth
Never buy what vou don't
want, simply because it is
cheap. ,
Penny Microscopes.
soJpiNbox
An obscure . Englishman has
anticipated Yankee genius in
cheapening this beautiful and
useful instrument, for the bene
fit of the million.' There is a
man who sometimes stands in
Leicester Square, London, says
Household Words, who sells
microscopes at a penny each.
They are made of a common
the bottom taken out
and a piece of window-glass
substituted. A small eye-hole
is bored in the lid, and thereon
is placed the lens, the whole
apparatus being painted black.
These microscopes are fully as
effective as much more costly
instruments sold in the shops.
An eminent microscopist, who
examined some of . them, found
that their magnifvine nower
was twenty diameters. The
cost of a lens made of glass, of
such a power, would be seventy
five cents or a dollar. On cut
ting one of them in two, it ap
peared that the lens was made
of Canada balsam, a transpar
ent gum. The balsam had been
heated, and carefully dropped
into the eye-hole of the pill
box.. It then assumed the
proper size, shape, transparency,
aud polish ol a very well ground
glass lens. The ingenious mi
croscopist has made and sold
these cheap little instruments
lor fifteen years.
A Beautiful Experiment.
The following beautiful chem
ical experiment may be easily
performed by a lady to the
great astonishment of a circle
at her tea party. Take two or
three leaves of red cabbage, cut
them into small bits, put them
into a basin, and pour a pint
of boiling water on them ; let it
stand an hour, then pour it oil
into a decanter. It will bo a
fine blue color. - Then take four
wine glasses ; into one put six
drops of strong vinegar ; into
another six drops of solution of
soda; into the third a strong
solution of alum, and let the
fourth remain empty. The
glasses may be prepared some
time before, and the few drops
of colorless liquid that has been
placed in them will not be no
ticed. Fill up the glasses from
tho decanter, and the liquid
poured into the glass contain
ing the acid will ' become a
beautiful red ; the glass contain
ing the soda will- become a fine
green; that poured into the
empty one will remain un
changed. By adding a little
vinegar to the green it will im
mediately change change to
red, and on adding a little so
lution of Boda to the rod it will
assume a fine green, thus show
ing the action o'f acids and al
kalis on vegetable blues. v
The Frozen Wells of Brandon.
[From the Scientific American.]
About a mile Southeast of
Brandon, Vermont, there is sit
uated a well about forty-one
feet deep, the4 water of-which
has the peculiarity of remaining
frozen all the year nraml In
1859 the owner of the property
began the usual excavations for.
water. . After- passing, through '
four feet of clay and ten feet
of soil, a bed of frozen gravel,
sixteen . feet .in thickness, was
encountered, which rapidly
changed to mud when exposed
to heat. Further digging pen
etrated another bed of clay,
and finally a layer of clean
gravel, in - which . water was
found. As the Winter . months
approached, .ice began to form :
in the well at the rate -of-from
two to four inches over'night,
while during the succeeding
Summer, though the well re
mained open, an occasional
skim of ice would appear on
the surface.
Eventually the well was
abandoned, but since it has re
mained unused it - is found that
if the Winter ice is not remov
ed when the weather is quite
warm, the water remains frozen
through the hottest , months.
During Apnr last, ice twenty
inches in thickness was taken
out, but as the atmosphere at
that time was chilly. , freezing
again took place. ' On July 16.
of this year, the temperature in
tne shade was co degrees f at
two feet from the surface of the
ice in the well the mercury
same to 6z degrees.
In 1860 four shafts were
sunk in immediate proximity to
tne well without striking frozen

givuuu, u mm eiiutjavur .was
more successful, but the experi
ment was never completed,
though we learn that it will be
once more undertaken next
Summer. There is consider- .
able speculation in the scientif
ic circles as to why this partic- .
ular locality, possibly two hun
dred leet square, should permit
the Winter cold to descend
through from twelve to twenty
nine feet of clay and gravel,
and freeze a mass of material
averaging fourteen feet thick,
and yet not effect any other
spot composed of similar strata.
Professor Hager is of opinion
that the phenomenon is due to
glacial remains. The beds of
clay which intercept the 6un's
heat and besides 6hed off sur
face water, together with favor
able arrangement of the strata
in connection with its dip. and
the proximity of the outcrop
ping limestone, it is believed,
have protected the frozen mass
from thawing for thousands of
years, while the remainder of
the glacier has long since melt
ed away, leaving only 1 1 s
moraines in the neighborhood.
Mr. Clarence Sterling, of
Bridgeport, Conn., who has al
ready- spent some time in the
investigation of the subject, pro
poses next year to carry down
the fifth well to a greater dis
tance.
THE DEATH OF A DISHONEST
MAN.
It is all over. He was buried,
to-day. lie did not live to be
old, and yet his life was not a
short one. He did a great deal
of business, and was widely,
known. The flags hung at
half-mast, for his name had
been a good deal before the
public.
Yet nobody respected him.
He was not honest; and that
was tho fatal drawback which
always kept him under. He
was shrewd enough and smart
enough, but he never had any
solid substantial prosperity, and
the solo reason was because he
had no inborn, abiding integrity.
Providence so orders things
that dishonesty thwarts the
most cunningly devised schemes
for making money. Were it
not so, thieves would become
rich ; but thieves never become
rich in the true sense of the
word. Their gains are uncer
tain, and their lives are thrift
less as well as unhappy.
Apart from all reference to a
future state of existence, there
is no better platform for this
world, no better basis to do
business upon, than that of the
Ten Commandments.
The feav of 111 exceeds the ill v''
fear. ;
