At no period in the history of our
country,' if indeed, in the history of
tho world, has music been more
critically studied,aud more univers
ally appreciated than at the present
time. Almost every cultivated
household has its musical instru
ment of some kind. The size and
expense of the Organ has nhvays
been u bar to its becoming a popu
lar instrument for general lines, but
the progressive improvements in
Cottage Organs within the last
twenty-live yearn, have followed one
auothcr so fast that now, tliese val
uable instruments combine all the
essential elements of the organ with
n portable size.
, As to quality among the various
Cottage Organs now manufactured,
if comparison, is iv test of merit, the
Ef toy must stand without a rival,
not only in beauty of finish, but
nlso In quality of the workmanship
in whatever goes' to make the "best
organ." This is secured by the
great care which is taken in ob
taining only tho VERY JSEST WORK
MEN, that can be had men who
have spent their lives in manufac
ture of these instruments. The
motto of the Esteys, when cmpory
ing workinuiij has always been
"evciy man an artist in his partic
ular departinet." This motto
which has been faithfully followed
out, has resulted in tho production
of their present superb instru
ments. , The tone and touch arc unap
proached by any other instrument
in existence, while its whole super
iority, with its peculiar improve
ments cannot be described, but
must be heard and seen to bo prop
erly appreciated. w&elt.

completing arrangements for the

of the committee were absent.whieh
was regretted, because of tho im

it is believed that they wore detain

for want of interest in the annual

A Japanese Encounters a Skunk.
The .interview of Prof. Butler
with the Japancso Ambassadors,
as they traveled over the Bur
lington route, fills a column in the
Chicago Post. But I find nothing
thero so amusing as an incident I
have heard the Professor relate,
but wiheh he omitted in his Chicago
report probably thinking it beneath
the dignity of a Chicago paper es

As the train was steaming along
near midnight, it chanced to disturb
nnd perhaps deatory, one or more
polecats. The Professor at once
inquired of Asahi, one of the young
Princes he was conducting to sur
prise their father, whether he smell
cd anything? It need hardly be
said that Asahi's answer was
afllrmativo. Tho next question of
the Prof, was, "Did you ever smell
anything like it in Japan?" The an
swer was "No, never!" "But what
in the world," asked the young
Prince, "what is it?" "A skunk," re
plied the Prof., "A skunk!" said
Asahi, "is that animal the buffalo,
or like the buffalo?"
This question was more natural
ihan we think at first. Why should
not a big smell betoken a big beast?
So the lion reasoned according to
TEsop, when hearing a cock crow in
the dark, ho trembled, believing he
was about to encounter an antago

The National Publishing Co., of

the most remarkable, and attrac

well know to every one thai, far be
yond tho Mississippi, and .stretch
ing over half the continent, is a
vast region which we vaguely term
"Tho Great West'" a region
abounding in the most wonderful
natural formations, rich in precious
mineral deposits, and offering the
greatest attractions to the settler
and the tourist. Though so often
spoken of, it is almost an "unknown
Mr. Beadle went into this region
for the avowed purpose of seeing
and describing it, and his journey-'
ings and observation were all gov
erned by a fixed purpose, that of
discovering and making known the
actual -haractcr, condition and re
sources of tho country visited by
him. He first traversed the States
of Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and
Kansas, examining the lands, and
living and conversing with tho peo
of those sections. For five years he
kept moving from point to point,
exploring the Territories, and the
great and rich State of tho Pacific
Coast, encountering strange people
and innumerable hardships and
braving many dangers in his wou
derings among the savages. He
visited tho rich mines of Colorado,
Utah, Nevada aud Idaho; passed
into California and Oregon, and
there enjoyed peculiar advantages
for seeing and investigating the
resources and curiosities of those
remarkable Slates, lie spent con
siderable time in New Mexico, Ari
zona and Texas, and bis account
of his observations and discoveries
in those strange and deeply inter-c.-iting
portions of our country wil'
ciiunnoiid hi.s book to the careful
consideration of the scholar, as well
as to all who seek practical infor
mation or amusement. His onlv
companions in his travels in Arizo
na were Indian guides, nud ftr
weeks during his explorations in
that Territory he never saw ihe
face of a white man.
To prospective emigrants and
settlers in the "Far West," this
histoiy of that vast region will
prove an invaluable assistance, sup
plying ns it. does, a want long
felt of a full, authentic and reliable
guide to ciiinato soil, products, dis
tances, localities, means of travel,
etc. It may be relied upon, for it
contains no second-hand informa
tion. It is comprised in one large oc
tavo valuinn of 823 pages, and illus
trated with 210 fine engravings of
the scenery, lands.mines people and
curiosities of the Great West. t
The low price at which tho work
is issued brings it within the reach
of all, and tho great popular inter
