UNRAVELING A CIPHER.
A Detective's Story About a Personal
" Osib Xtry uv hiyjlwzb tnr'.mj i) 127 Uriv
There it was, in italics, half way
down the "personal" column of tho
Herald, conspicuous only for its singu
lar and most aggravating combination
of letters and figures, tho solo clew to
the whereabouts of the gem I had been
after for over a week, scarcely resting,
eating or sleeping in my anxiety to se
cure the reward offered in a heavy bur
glary case and something else.
That "something else." Ah! my
heart sank within me as 1 flung aside
tho enigmatical puzzle before me, and,
leaning back in my chair, gave myself
up to the gloomy reveries of tho past.
Edna Dayton how I loved her! How
fair and beautiful as a summer's idyl
had been tho week in which I had mot
her, had loved her, and had been told
that my affection was returned! Mow
well I remember tho bitter parting a
hopeless one, it seemed to mo when I
learned my fate from her father's lips,
and passed down the brown-stono steps
of the Dayton mansion, wondering if
tho inclination of moneyed men toward
stone residences was not caused by tho
existence of a similar hard material in
that part of the human anatomy known
as tho heart.
I was a poor man, ho said, and tho
profession of a detective was a pre
carious one. His daughter loved me;
lie could not deny that but sho was
his only child, and her wealth and posi
tion demanded a match with some so
cial equal. Ho would not break her
heart by absolutely refusing to sanction
our engagement; out if within a year I
could secure a fortune of if 25,000 and a
lucrative business, and Edna was still
of the same mind well, he would con
Twenty-five thousand dollars! I grew
sick at the thought of the condition im
posed, upon which I was to purchase
my future happiness. In the reception
of a meager salary and utterly un
known, where was I to raise this
amount? And what business capacity
had I, the son of parents who had given
me every luxury, and neglected a prac
tical education," until a crash came that
loft us homeless and in penury?
Day and night for over a month I
brooded over my sorrows, and then ono
day I was aroused into renewed life by
the reception of a formal but courteous
note from Mr. Dayton, requesting my
immediate attendance at tho mansion.
My feet winged as I hastened to the
house of my loved Edna. What did it
mean? Had ho relented? Was Edna
sick, or lid business await mo at the
pleasure of my haul-hearted censor? I
was ushered into the library, whero I
found the old gentleman in an intense
state of excitement pacing tho floor,
the window broken in, papers and box
es scattered about tho apartment, and
a safe in tho corner broken open.
I stared at him in amazement.
" You seemed agitated, Mr. Dayton,"
I ventured to suggest.
"Agitated! agitated, sir! I am wild.
Late last night or early this morning,
burglars entered this apartment by
means of yonder window and broke
open tho safe. When I came down
this morning Hound affairs as they aro
now, and nearly $100,000 in money,
bonds and jewelry gone."
I stared mutely. The immensity of
the robbery petrified mo.
" No," ho thundered, coming to a
full stop. "I have no confidence in a
police force which fails to protect a
house from such an audacious burglary
and expects ono-half tho booty for its
return. Here is tho room arid yondor
is a list of tho stolen property. I be
lieve you are honest, and I leave tho I
entire aflair in your own hands. Call
upon me for whatever money you re
quire in an attempt to recover the prop
erty or to detect the thieves. If you
succeed within a month I will pay you
thirty thousand dollars. If you fail I
will pay your expenses for the month
and place the case in other hands. Are
I gasped spasmodically. Thirty
thousand dollars! A fortune more
tham the price of my happiness! And
then the prido of my profession came
to my aid, and I told him that I should
I examined the apartment. The
burglary bad been effected very simply,
apparently. Edward, tho footman a
tall, lank specimen of humanity had
heard a noise in the night in tho library,
but had paid no attention to it, as Mr.
Dayton was in the habit of writing very
late, and he thought it was his em
ployer. What puzzled mo most was the means
of entrance and egress adopted by the
burglar or burglars. The library was
fully fifteen feet from tlie ground, had
a bay-window, and, except the broken
pane of glass, there was not tho slight
est sign to show how tho window had
been ifained. A ladder would have
done it, but no marks of a ladder, no
wigns of fooUUSps, exhibitod themselves
lu tlie damp ground, wet from recent
I waa iorely puzzled. I examined
the servants one by one, but could find
noclew to justify the slightest suspicion
of complicity in the affair on their part.
The work hail evidently been done by
Bolontilio burglars, aud they had worked
at their leisure.
1 inquired into the antecedents of Ed
ward, the loot m mi; but Mr. Dayton
kvwnud that h would allow no upi-
clon to rest on so faithful a servant to
tho family. I resolved to Inquire moro
about him, however; but I found noth
ing Against tho man, and temporarily
dismissed him from my mind as having
no connection with the case.
" You beard no noiso on the night of
tho robbery P" I inquired of Mr. Dayton.
" None. I slept unusually sound last
1 went away thoughtfully, for I had
found In the library an empty bottle
which, from tho scent, I know to havo
contained chloroform, and I had no
ticed tho marksof muddy boots leading
from tho apartment, whilo around the
window nono were to bo seen. Tho
glass, too, had boon broken by a quick
blow, not cut out. Altogether, it was a
most mysterious piece oft business.
I watched all (liven frequented by tho
cracksmen, of tho city, and worked liko
a beaver. I could not obtain a clew to
tho perpetrators of the daring burglary,
and, niter threo days of unremitting
toil, I was considering if it would not
bo as well to call in professional as
sistance, when tho advertisement in tho
llcrnld at tho head of this story at
traded my attention. Instinctively I
divined some connection with tho
"crooked" business, and whether it re
ferred to my case or not, I resolved to
ascertain Its meaning.
1 went down to tho Herald office that
morning, and, Introducing myself, at
tempted to obtain some description of
tho person who had handed in tho ad
vertisement. Tho clerk staled that it
had been received by mail, in a letter
inclosing tho amount requisite for its
insertion in tho paper. "Could I seo
the original copy?" Ho would sec;
and a message was sent to the composing-room.
Luckily, tho copy had been
preserved. It was written in a Uis-
fuised hand on a little scrap of paper,
asked leave to retain it, anil, permis
sion being granted to mo, 1 returned to
my room at once.
1 pored over tho cipher for a long
time, and discouraged at my inability
to make out ono word of it, wis finally
about to abandon it, when I chanced to
look at tho reverso sldo of tho paper.
There were figures and words on it,
and Iread: " United States bonds, !?10,
000," and other memornnda, indicat
ing that it had been a loose wrapper
for valuable papers.
Then 1 knew that tho advertisement
bore an important relation to the rob
bery. And so until tho day upon which the
story opens I was unable to make head
or tail of tho secret enigma.
So wearied was T that I fell asleep
with my head upon my desk, and I did
not awaken until noontime. It is won
derful how a brief reposo will clear tho
mind. I took up tho paper with re
newed energy, and a bright idea flashed
Simple as it was I had not thought of
it before. Tho entire message was
written on tho substitution of letters,
based on the reversal of the alphabet.
Instead of a, z, the last one, was sub
stituted; instead of b, y was used; tho
alphabet reversed was tho key to the
solution of tho puzzle.
I gave utterance to a shout of joy,
for, following out the theory, it read:
" Larry, meet mo Saturday night at
127 Fire street Ned."
And "Ned" or Edward was the name
of Dayton's footman. I began to see a
very largo mice. IJut i ire street there
was no such thoroughfare in the city,
and I was " flooded" again.
Gradually, however, the thought
occurred Ho mo on tho basis of reversal
and opposites adopted by tho sender of
the message, why should not "fire"
mean "water, its direct reverser
I dashed down tho stairs, and, hail
ing a cab (for I did not forget that it
was Saturday, and that evening was
tho appointed timo for tho meeting of
the two burglars, if such they were,) I
soon had reached Water street.
Vacant! Number 127 was an empty
I paused, disappointed, and dis
missed tho vehicle, again having re
course to tho puzzling enigma! So
near tho solution, and yet doomed to
be balked at the last, and
A sudden inspiration of renewed
energy, and I had forged the last link
in the chain of evidence! There had
been reversal in tho order of numbers
from one to ten, as in the letters of tho
alphabet, and 127 meant 1084.
1 looked at my watch; three o clock.
1 went to tho nearest iocal telegraph
office, and sent the following dispatch
to Uluet ot L olice:
"Send to this office threo efficient
men in citizen's clothes."
I signed my name, lit a cigar, and
awaited tho arrival of evening and my
It was dark when we reached the
place for the meeting appointed by tho
two men. It was a vilo groggery, kept
ny a woman, anu a resort tor the very
lowest class of ruffians. I had out on
a felt hat and a pair of false whiskers,
and I entered tho bar-room, having
first placed my men in advantageous
positions on tho outside.
Within hall an hour there entered an
old woman, veiled, bearing some bulky
object under her cloak. Sho made a
sign to the woman behind tho bar, and
went into the next room. I caught
sight of her feet as she passed through
the door; they were incased, not in
shoes, but in men s boots. 1 went
quickly to the bar aud made a sign to
" Is Larry there?" I inriuired in a
loud voice, pointing to the other apart
She looked at me sharply, and then
replied in tho affirmative.
" Keep anybody that comes out." I
said significantly. "We aro going to

And I opened tho door.
There was no ono in tho first room.

llo unbolted the rear door under the
silent persnsivo elequonce of my revol

Need I tell tho rest? Edward, the
footman, had admitted his accom
plice into the house and had chloro
formed his employer. He had kept his
booty hidden in his room, not daring to
go out to communicate with his pal, ex

England and the Afghans.
The London Times publishes ft long
telegram from Darjeeling, India, in
which tko following interesting arcount
is given of tho mooting between Ma).
Cavagnarl and tho Mir Akhor, of tho
Ameer of Afghanistan:
Further particulars of an interesting
character have boon recently published
of tho now historical interview between
Maj. Cavngnnrl and tho Ameer's com
mandant at All Musjid. On tho memo
rable 21st of September, 187H, tho mis
sion started at 1 o'clock a. m. from
Peshawnr for Jumrood, a picturesque
fort lying just within the British terri
tory, and held for us by tho chief of a
vilfago In tho neighboring plain. Our
camp was pitched to tho east of
the fort. J'ho total number ac
compnnying tho mission amounted to
not quite 1,000, of whom eleven wero
Itritish officers, four native gentlemen,
and 2.'U fighting men. Tho rest were
camp followers. The rarriago consist
ed of 315 camels, 250 mules, and forty
horses. Tho whole formed a cortege (if
considerably over a mile in length.
Conflicting reports had reached I'esa
wur as to tho Intentions of the Ameer.
It was known that Mir Akhor, or mas
ter of tho horse of tho Ameer, was
present at Ali Musjid, and as ho was
known to bo possessed with a fanatical
hatred of tho English, it was deemed
unwise to send tho whole convoy into
tho pass until accurate information
should havo been obtained as to the in
tentions of the commandant. Maj.
Cavngnari was, therefore, directed to
ride forward, taking with him a small
escort of the guides and the head man
of ourfrontier villages and of the friend
ly Khybcrees. Directly they were per
ceived the fort walls were manned, and
shortly afterward a number of troops
lined tho opposite ridge. After con
siderable delay a messenger arrived,
and announced that tho commandant
would corno out to meet Maj. Cavagna
ri and three others at a spot indicated
by tho side of the stream, half way be
tween the two ridges.
Shortly afterward ho was seen ap
proaching, and Maj. Cavagnari, taking
with him the commandant of the guides
and two of his escort, and accompanied
by the head man of the tribes, went
forward to meet Faiz Mohammed, the
rest of the escort remaining on tho
ridge. On his way tho chief oT one of
tho other Khyber tribes friendly to the
Ameer attempted to stop him, on the
plea that ho was accompanied by more
than the stipulated number. Maj. Ca
vagnari, however, put him aside, say
ing that he had como to talk, not with
him, but with tho Ameer's officers. On
meeting Faiz Mohammed, Maj. Cavag
nari shook hands with him, nnd the
two parties sat down, surrounded by 200
of Faiz Mohammed's otlicers. The con
versation, after the usual friendly greet
ings, was opened by Maj. Cavagnari,
who said that both he and the com
mandant were equally servants of their
respective Governments, and, there
fore, only carrying out their orders.
There was, therefore, no necessity for
the discussion being carried on in any
but a friendly spirit; that he Faiz
Mahomed must be aware of the in
tended advance of the mission, and that
Sir Neville Chamberlain had sent him
on to ascertain from his own -lips
whether he had received orders relative
to tho. reception of the mission. If
there were any latitude in the terms of
his orders he felt sure that the com
mandant would be aware of the heavy
responsibility he would incur by pre
venting tho advance of the mission, as
his act would bo accepted as the act of
tho Ameer. Faiz Mohammed replied
that he himself was actuated by friend
ly feelings toward Maj. Cavagnari, in
proof of which he pointed out that in
stead of coming down to meet him he
might have ordered his men to fire on
his party when it appeared. He pro
ceeded to say that' ho had already been
severely reprimanded for allowing tho
Viceroy's envoy, Nawah Gholam Hus
sein, to pass, and that, therefore, he
could not permit the advance of the
mission. Ho begged that Sir Neville
Chamberlain would halt till he could
communicate with Cabul. This, Maj.
Cavagnari replied, was not only im
possible but unnecessary, as the Cabul
authorities had long been aware of the
approach of the mission. The conver
sation continued ;n this strain for some
littlo timo, Maj. Cavagnari urging the
weight of the responsibility Faiz Mo
hammed would incur, and the latter re
peating his inability to allow tho mis
sion to pass without a permit from
Cabul. At last, on Maj. Cavagnari
again pointing out tho friendly nature
ot tho mission, tho Afghan, showing
for the first timo some warmth, said
the object of his friendship was merely
to stir up dissension in the Ameer's do
minions by bribiug his subjects to dis
obey his orders " by bribing you and
others" (here alluding to tho negotia
tions with tho Khyberees for the safe
condnct of tho mission.) At this an
ambiguous murmur was heard from
the soldiers, and Maj. Cavagnari re
plied that that was not a subject for
subordinates to discuss, and that if the
Ameer had any complaint to make, no
doubt tho Government would givo him
a satisfactory reply. He then asked
for a final answer, whether he was dis
tinctly to understand that tho mission
would bo resisted by foreo. Faiz Mo-
nammea replied that ho had no alter
native if tho mission wero pressed. On
this Maj. Cavagnari asked tho Chiefs
with him whether they considered this
a sufficiently clear answer, to which
they replied that it was perfectly clear.
Ho then thanked Faiz Mohammed for
his courtesy, and expressed a hope that
they might again meet in moro agree
able circumstances. Ho again shook
hands with him and departed. It was
then perceived that tho Ameer had no
possible intention of receiving tho mis
sion, and it was accordingly dissolved.
Letter from One of the Scientists on Board
the Arctic Ship Florence.
Prof. L. Kummelein, of Wisconsin,
naturalist of the Arctio expedition on
board tho ship Florence, has written
tho following letter to a friend in Mil
waukee: Puovincktown, Cape Cod, Mass.,
Oct. 27 Hear friend: Where shall I
begin? Well, at the tail end; so hero
goes. First, make up your mind to
overlook all discrepancies, tor tins is a
task I have not undertaken for some
timo, and then never did I write in a
moro exoited frame of mind. I hwo
just, with tho greatest pleasure, read
your telegram. Had you heard the
laiso report prevalent in tho fcast ot tho
Horeuce being lost? I was greatly
alarmed lest my father should hear of
it beforo my telegram reached him.
We put in hero yesterday to repair and
got provisions for the rest of the jour
ney. Now, the report was probably
started because we were so much over
due at Now Loudon, our clearing day
having been telegraphed to tho New
York Herald, and the fearful gales com
ing on, the rest was natural enough.
From tho timo we left St. John's till wo
reached hero, we have rodo out seven
as fearful gales as ever swept the At
lantic. On the l'Jth, off Sable Island,
in a torrilio gale, "hovo to" undor
close-reefed storm sail, huge combing
seas sweeping over the decks, pitchy
dark, thick fog aud rain, one of the sail
ors came aft und reported the forecastle
full of water. Sho find sprung a bad
leak. Aud at such a time we were mo
mentarily expecting her to go down.
I'umps were manned by willing hands.
but we could not gain on the water. It
then became necessary to remove our
large anchor off tho starboard bow with
uiu chaiuk) tut "run ' uudurtug cabin,
In order to raise her head as high as
possible out of water. Now, in such
weather, without light, this was no easy
task, but it was finally accomplished, t
had the most of my clothes torn off,
but that was all the damago done to
mo. We finally succeeded in keeping
her free by constant pumping day and
The last galo drove us up toward the
coast of Maine, for wo could but drift,
keeping her head to the wind. Can
you imagine our situation in so small a
tub? We havo a sail boat on Lako
Koshkonong one-third longer. Hut tho
worst feature remains to be told we
were seven days without provisions.
At St. Johns we were equipped Tor
twelve days, calculating It would take
seven days' to get homo. Ot courso we
had soino little pork and some raw
onions, but all hands on short allow
ance on that, even, and then pumping
day and night. No ono has taken their
clothes off since we left St. Johns till
last night. The table was not spread
for five days at a stretch even whilo
we had rye bread and coffee for every
one took his mug and piece of salt pork
and siiuatted down in a corner on tho
cabin-floor, and then sometimes lost tho
coffee by an extra roll.
We saw ono large brig off Tablo Head
with wind-mill pump-going and with a
fearful list to port, her cargo, probably,
having shifted in tho hold. Sho at
tempted to call and speak to us, but
failed. Sho probably sank, as tho gale
freshened soon after, and when it let
up sho was not to be seen.
When we got in here, yesterday, the
Captain and I went ashore immediately
and got some grub for tho ship's com
pany. Everyone eat so much that they
felt uncomfortable in consequence.
This morning 1 began to write; but
alas! vain hope. Tho visitors began to
pour in until wo had the decks com
pletely covered, and thecabin crammed.
I have been answering reporters' ques
tions all day, until I feel as if I wished
the whole lot of them in " buggery."
Everyone must come and see the " last"
Arctic voyagers and the littlo schooner
that has withstood tho lato gales. So
much for this part of the cruise the
particulars will keen. I might as well
work backward, as I have begun.
From St. Johns to Cumberland Sound
we encountered only four terrific gales,
making tho passage in fifteen days go
ing over the same distance in thirty
five hours that took us sixteen days last
year, when we were forty-one (fays to
our first harbor. When wo left our
winter harbor (July 7, or more proper
ly tho 19th, as this was the date we
fairly got under way), we took the ice
and worked through 250 miles of it. It
was before the schooner got jammed
and sprung a leak that closed after we
got to anchor on the Greenland coast,
and reopened on the 19th day of Octo
ber off Sable. As you know, there was
no expedition to meet us, so we had to
go back again to Cumberland with our
sixteen Esquimaux and thirty dogs,
with all their accoutrements. We had
but fairly got started when the wind
sprung up from the southeast. It soon
increased to a living gale, and kept in
creasing. We were in close proximity
to tho heavy Baffin's Bay pack (the
heaviest ever known no vessel got
through), and drifting right into it.
We lay hove to for four days, and when
it cleared we found ourselves in the
mouth of Exeter Sound, 200 miles to
the westward of our course. We had
drifted all this time among hundreds
of icebergs without getting foul of any.
The poor Esquimaux were battened
down in the hold during all this time,
and thirty wild dogs running the decks.
This was the heaviest gale we have en
countered, and came within one ace of
tripping the schooner many times. One
sea swept everything off the decks and
on the house, but wo only lost four
dogs. o much, bnetly, tor the passage.
My companion and I lived in the
snow hut eight months, on a small
island. No light but one of your tin
boxes with an oil burner in it, and
burning seal oil. Our allowance of
fuel gave out two months before the
cold weather did. Our greatest cold
was in January. It was 52 degrees, or
83 degrees below freezing point. The
mercury exposed in a dish froze solid.
so a3 to be handled like a chip, at 42
degrees. 1 he heavtest snow fell June
o, 6, and 7. I walked ashore on the
ice on the 4th of July, and sketched off
tho harbor and schooner.
On the last day of April 1 undertook
a long journey "with some Esquimaux
with dog teams, and while sleeping
alongside of the sled, thirty-five miles
from land, with a forty-mile north wind
blowing and a temperature of 41 de
grees, I cither froze or caught cold in
the first finger of my left hand, which
left me a crippled hand until the end of
July, and I now have a much deformed
and nearly useless linger. I froze my
noso times without number, even after
I made a covering ot aomo heavy oUth
your mother gave me for the purpose.
I substituted fine reindeer skin while
traveling, which answered better. One
of the sailors froze a foot so badly that
he was laid up for seven months. Two
others were less badly frozen. This
was in November, while trying to take
caro of a whale. I have not been sick
a day since I left New London.
Ut my work 1 hardly know what to
say yet. Certain it is I have improved
my time and opportunities the best I
could; but my opportunities have been
exceedingly poor, for we were frozen
up in a barren waste of snow for eight
months, and under way most of the
time. I have a perfect specimen of a
white whale, skeletons of seals, 000
papers of pressed flowers, meteoric iron
fossils, and Esquimaux utensils. The
Smithsonian Institute will clean out the
best of my specimens of course I have
a good lot of scientifically valuable
specimens for tho society aud for you,
and otnors ior sale, out not much mar
ketable stuff. All my rare eggs are
few in number. Tho whale is worth
about $800. I am sure my specimens
have been damaged in the late gale,
which was unavoidable.
My bunk is just six feet long, two
and one-half feet wide, and the same
height. In this space I slept, worked
and studied. In it I kept three guns,
all my clothes, bedding, forty-two
books, pipes, tobacco, and a hundred
other things. You shake your head,
and woulilsay, if you knew Esquimaux:
" Kinnatti ebin shaglenting." But such
is the fact.
Do I regret tho step 1 took? Well,
no. I have some pleasant recollections
and many very unpleasant ones.
My silver bath, containing nitrate of
silver, froze and bursted in the bunk

Divorces in Old Times and New.
Divorce existed in all ages at Rome,
and was always a private act. For a
long tune it was not abused by the
Romans, but toward the latter part of
-1- I I! 1 I ,1 . .
iiiu rcpuouu ami uuiuT mo empire,
divorces became very common.
Seneca notices this laxity of manners;
and Juvenal gives a remarkable in
stance of a Roman matron, who is said
to have gone the round of eight hus
bands in live years. 1'onipey divorced
his wife Mucia. Cicero speaks of Paula
Valeria as being ready to servo her
husband with uotico of divorco, ou
his roturn from his province. Cicero
himself divorced his wife Terentia,
after living with her thirty years. The
husband generally took the keys from
his wife, put her out of his house, gave
her back her dowry and ro dissolved
the marriage. This might be done In
the wife's absence. Cicero divorced
his wife Terentia by letter.
The laws In trie several Grecian
States regarding divorce were different,
and in some of them mon were allowed
to put away their wives on slight oc
casions. Among the Athenians, either
husband or wife might take the first
step. Tho wife might leave the hus
band or the husband might dismiss the
the wife. The Spartans seldom di
vorced their wives. The Ephori fined
Lysander for repudiating his wife.
An Arab may divorce nis wife on the
slightest occasion. So easy and so
common is the practice that Bnrkhardt
assures us that he has seen Arabs not
more than forty-five years of age who
were known to have had fifty wives,
yet they rarely have more than ono at
By the Mohammedan law a man may
divorce his wife orally and without any
ceremony; ho pays her a portion, gen
erally one-third of her dowry. He may
divorce her twice and take her again
without her consent, but if ho puts her
away by a triple divorce conveyed in
the same sentence he cannot receive
her again until she has been married
and divorced by another husband.
By tho Jewish law it appears that a
wife could not divorce her husband;
but under the Mohammedan code, for
cruelty and some other causes, she may
Among tho Hindoos and also among
the Chinese a husband may divorce his
wife upon the slightest ground, or even
without assigning any reason. She is
under the absolute control of her hus
band. The law of France before the revolu
tion, following the judgment of the
Catholic Church, held marriage to be
indissoluble; but during the early revo
lutionary period divorce was permitted
at tho pleasure of the parties when in
compatibility of temper was alleged.
The Code Napoleon restricted this
liberty. On the restoration of the
Bourbons a law was promulgated, May
8, 1816, declaring divorco to be abol
ished; that all suits then pending for
divorce, for definite cause, should be
for separation only, and that all steps
then taken for divorce by mutual con
sent should be void; and' such is now
the law of France.
The power of the courts to grant
limited divorces is well settled in this
country. Cruel and inhuman treat
ment and abandonment are frequent
grounds of action. Austerity of tem
per, sallies of passion, abusive lan
guage and mere indignities to the
moral character or reputation of his
wife, vulgar or harsh language, with
such epithets that deeply wound the
feelings and excite the passions, with
out any menace indicating violence to
the person, do not afford sufficient
grounds of divorce. If a wife render
her husband's "condition intolerable
and his life burdensome," or if her
conduct is so violent and outrageous as
to render the proper discharge of tho
duties of married life impossible, it is
a good ground of separation from her.
Such abuse of indignities offered by the
wife to the husband would not justify
him in turning her out of doors; he
must show some cruel or barbarous
treatment or danger of his life as would
entitle him to a divorce. Desertion or
abandonment by either husband or wife
is one grorind for divorce; but the de
sertion or abandonment must be inten
tional, or wilful and malicious, with an
intent to renounce and disregard the
marriage relation. The refusal of a
wife to remove with her husband to a
foreign country is not a wilful deser
tion. If a husband should go away
and live apart from his wife it is not
considered a desertion within the mean
ing of the statutes of New Jersey. The
failure to supply the wife with such
necessaries and comforts as are within
the husband's circumstances, and thus
by cruelty compelling her to quit him,
amounts to actual abandonment and
desertion. Albany Law Journal.
Teasing goes on at home often to la
mentable extent, and more than
one temper has been permanently
soured by the process. The parents
tease the children and the children
tease each other, till the passionate are
made furious, the meek teartul, the hum
ble craven, the insensitive callous, and
the quiet morose. If one child has a cer
tain ungainly habit consequent, per
haps on a physical defect as the peer
ing of short sight, or the limp of lame
ness; if it is absent or dreamy orclurasy,
those who urn given, to the bad habit of
teasing never let it alone. No callow
cygnet was ever more cruelly pecked
at by the full-fledged ducks than is the
poor ugly duckling of the nursery; and
unless that cruel play is stopped by the
authorities the mischief of a life is
wrought. Nothing, indeed, in a house
demands more careful overlooking and
more vigorous and judicious suppress
ing than this habit of teasing indulged
in by the members of a family one with
the other; for the sport of the ono is
here again emphatically death to the
other; and when you have broken the
finer nature that lies in every soul, how
will you mend it? But it does not an
swer to be too sensitive and to make a
martyrdom out of a little harmless play
that means to do no one any hurt. The
only way in which to meet those who
make teasing in a manner a profession
is with perfect good humor and sereni
ty. To be cross or tearful is to lay
yourself open to worse assaults; for the
teaser only wants to know which place
is most vulnerable, and where he can
best wound you. Give him his vantage
gerund, and he will use it to your dis
comfiture, mask your weak places and
he is powerless. This is a lesson which
the young find it difficult to learn, but
the sooner it is learned, and the more
thoroughly practised, the better for
them and the worse for their assailants.
It is, in fact, a lesson on desirability
for good temper, which we all find
about the best friend and the most sat
isfactory defender to bo had on our way
through life. Springfield Republican.
An Infallible Test of Yellow Fever.
Tho fever this year has not been more
vigorous in its attack upon humanity
than upon the theories regarding it
that have been based upon the annuls
of the past. One by one has if ovei
thrown tho notions of our forefathers,
until it has almost assumed a type un
known to history. So peculiar, indeed,
have been its characteristics this year,
there are those to-day who hesitato to
pronounce it as tho yellow fever known
in former epidemics. Only one idioo
rasy is clear the marked difference be
tween the course of the pulse and the
height of the thermal line. This is pe
culiar to yellow fever alone, and has
invariably served to distinguish it from
tho paludal fevers so common in semi
tropic latitudes. In ordinary fevers the
pulse and the temperature keep even
pace, or vary but little. Ia yellow fe
ver, from the commencement the pulse
declines to normal figures, or even low
er, while the temperature rises. This
is the true pathognomic sign, by which
the disease can never be mistaken.

FARM AND HOUSEHOLD.
Beef Loaf. One and one-half
pounds of beefsteak chopped very fine
and free from grizzle; two cups of rolled
crackers (fine); one cup of cold water;
ono-half cup of butter; salt and pepper
to suit the taste; bake till done.
It Is always an amusing study of
human nature to observe tlie cries of
men In the fields to their farm animals.
After listening to a man talk to his
horses and oxen one feels quite well ac
quainted with him. The ears of most
animals are so sensitivo one wonders
that some of them are not deafened en

Coffee Tablets. A Frenchman
roasts coffee, grinds it to flour, moist
ens it slightly, mixes it in twice its
weight of powdered white sugar and
then presses it into tablets. One of
these tablets can bo dissolved at any
timo In hot or cold water, making at
once the very perfection of coffee; and
it is claimed that it will go much fur
ther this way.
Ox Tail Soup. Two ox tails, two
whole onions, two carrots, one small
turnip, two tablcspoonfuls of flour, a
little white pepper; and one gallon of
water; boil all two hours; then take out
tho tails and cut the meat in small
pieces; return the bones to tho pot for
a short time; boil another hour; strain
the soup; add two spoonfuls of arrow
root to tho meat; and boil all quarter
of an hour.
Juniata Omelet. Beat six eggs
separately; mix with the yelks one and
u half cups of sweet milk, a littlo salt,
and one tablespoonful of flour well
mixed with a littlo milk; lastly add the
whites beaten to a stiff froth, then pour
all into a heated buttered or larded pan
and let it boil stirring constantly until
it thickens, then pour into an omelet
or baking dish, and bake in a quick

some of those ladies that are pitying
tho poor farmer's wives would visit
some of us they would find the isolated

Cream Puffs. For the cake: Take
of sifted flour two cups, butter one and
one-fourth cups, sugar a teaspoonful;
rub together well and put into a pint of
boiling water; boil anil stir briskly until
it thickens; remove from tho tire and
add gradually eight eggs well beaten;
stir rapidly and when well mixed let
stand until cold; have buttered tins
ready and drop the mixture in table
spoonfuls, about six inches apart.
Brush over with the white of an egg and
bake in a quick oven a light brown
color; when done these will be hollow
shells, which are to be cut apart and
filled with cream. Cream is made as
follows: Beat two eggs to a froth; add
one-third teacupful of powdered sugar,
one-half teacupful of flour; stir all into
a pint of boiling milk and cook until it
thickens; when cool flavor with lemon
or vanilla and fill the shells with it.
To Keep Pork Sweet a Year. Pre
pare a brine as strong as boiling water
and pure salt will make it and keep it
at or near the boiling point. As soon
as the pork is dressed cut it for packing.
The flanks and thin parts may be left in
pieces somewhat broad if desired, but
the thick parts should be in slices not
more than two inches between the cuts.
Have your barrels or packing tubs pre
pared beforehand. Put as much pork
into the boiling brine as it will con
veniently hold and let it lie in the hot
brine from three to five minutes, ac
cording to the thickness and size of the
pieces. Take it out of the brine and
pack it into the tub or barrel; repeat till
all the pork is in. Then pour in the
brine hot and put on weights to keep
the pork from floating. Pork may be
slaughtered in the hottest of dog-days,
and if immediately treated in this way
will keep perfectly sweet for any desired
length of time.
A fashion item says: "Marabout
feather bonnets will be worn for full

The National Scourge.
It I estimated that the annual damages
caused by the ravages of insects anil worms
exceed 150,0O0,0UO In the United States alona.
Truly an enormous loss! Yet it sink into in
eliinincance when compared with the ravages
of that more terrible scourge, Consumption,
which annually sweeps hundreds ot thousands
of human souls into eternity. The causes of
consumption are various, depemltu In every
instance for the development of the disease
upon the scrofulous diathesis, or tempera
ment, of the victim. Thus the same cause
which will proiluce in one person an attaek of
acute disease or a slight nervous prostration,
will engender consumption in a person of
scrofulous habit. That consumption can be
cured by proper treatment will be readily per
ceived when the exact nature of the disease is
understood, viz., the accumulation and depo
sition of scrofulous matter (tubercles) In the
lunss. Obviously, the principal remedies re
quired are (1) a powerful alterative, or biood
puritier, to arrest the accumulations aud ulso
cleanse the blood ot the scrofulous matter,
and (2) a mild cathartic to expel the diseased
matter from the system. This course of treat
ment, in conjunction with a strict hygienic
regime, has proved the most successful meth
od of curing this disease. Dr. Pierce's Oolden
Medical Discovery and Pleasaut Purgative
Pelletb are the best alterative and cathartic
remedies before the public, and have been
alone used in thousands of cases of consump
tion with the most marked etllcacj. Dr.
Pierce's Invalids' Hotel, at Buffalo, N. T., af
fords special and unequaled advantages to
consumptives, not only possessing the best
medical and hygienic means of treatment, but
having the essential advantage of being situ
ated In a climate where the inhabitants ar
notably free from this disease.

I JOHN H ANN AS, being a Rlacksmlth by trade, had
often felt thn want of some means whereby I could
soften Iron at thn fortre, so that 1 could work It at a bet
tcr advantage. This I ml need ntn to make many experi
ments with different substances which offered thn best
prospect nf snores. It was on one of thesn occasions
that I discovered the wonderful effects of hUestro tmicon
on the Human System.
I had a defect In threw of my miners, which were bent
or shut up In my hand In such a manner, by the rON
tractton of TUB rtpfl, that they were rery trouble
soino to me In my dally avocation. I could not hsndle
my tools as I wished, and often thought I would have
them cut off to trnt thnm out of the way. 1 havn used
everythlrift that offered any hope of rel inf. but aU to no
effect, Well, I say, I was working with Electro Silicon
at the foi ere, and of course could not . prevent Its com
liur in contact with my hands.
I took no notice of the effect It had produced, imttt
one day, wish Inn to use a heavy hammer, I grasped with
my crooked hand, and much to my surprise I found my
crooked fingers straighten out, and I had as much use
of them as ever. I could hardly beltem my eyes. I
showed my hands to my wife ai d famlljk and a general
rejoicing was the result.
I ha I a netuhbor living about a mile from my shop who
hail a lame knee, caused by the chords being contracted
by rheumatism. I sent him a bottle of Electro silicon
Liniment, and told him to use It thoroughly. He did
so, and at the end of three months be was able to throw
atdde his cine aud w.illt to my Hhop apparently as well
at ever. It had worked J nut as It did In my cam pro
ducing a perfect enre. I gave It to others of my neigh
bors and friends t for miles around , who were suffering
from Swelled Limbs, KheuniatWm, Neuralgia, Stilt
Joints, Burns, etc, allot which It cured without any
trouble. Hulling that the Electro silicon Liniment
would penetrate the -kln of man lurtner than any other
substance, it occurred to me that it must be givod for
the horne. and tt ban proved Itself one of the very let1
application in all external diseases occurring to tho
noble aulmai. Prepared by the
