public will be glad to see an authoritative
statement of the whole affair, from Rev.
Dr. Lman Abbott editor-in-chief of the
CTirttrlan C'nion, and temporary pastor (or
supply) of the church. He says:
The Her. Dr. Joseph Parker preached at
Plymouth church, Brooklj j, Sunday morn
ing, before a very large congregation. A
reception is to be given Dr. Parker in the
parlors of the church Tuesday evening. He
alls for Europe ou Saturday. Dr. Parker
has made the very generous contribution of
$700 (being the sum paid him for his ex
penses tn coming here to deliver the eulogy
on Mr. Ksecher) to tbe Memorial commit
tee. The secular papers have curiously
bl underad In reporting the matters connected
with tills eulogy. Plymouth church did
not Invite Dr. Parker to deliver the eulogy;
he was Invited by the Memorial Fund com
mittee, but not even a single member of
Plymouth church was upon It Plymouth
church had nothing more to do with the
matter than Trinity church. New York, nor
quite as much as Trinity church, Brooklyn,
since It happened that the rector ef tbe
latter church was chairman of the com
mittee. Nor did that committee ever criti
cise the amount paid by itself to Dr.Parker,
nor did Plymouth church. The criticism
came from a lecal newspaper In Brooklyn.
The only connection Plymouth church had
with the affair was that one of Its members
stepped lu to heal the breach and paid Dr.
Parker out of his own pocket the S700 for
trai eling expenses and pulpit supply, that
It might not be charged to the Memerlal
fund, and then Dr. Parker paid the sum so
paid to him over to the fund, thus increas

"The speculators are at work again,"
aid a wholesale dnigxdst when shown a
dispatch from Lyons. J. x.. stating tnal
there are over 200,000 pounds of pepper
mint oil in Wayne county, and in conse
quence the price is lower than at anv
time in the past thirty rears.
"Peppermint is a small crop compared
with beat or corn," lie continued, "and
it is grown on a small territory, Wayne
county, in this state, producing nearly nil
the cppermint oil that is used in tl:
world. These facts mako it a tempting
field for sj-eculation.
"How do the six-culators operate?"
They begin just as that disjMtch indi
cates: first, by saying that there is a largs
quantity of oil held over from last vear,
which is not true; tlien they overstate the
amount on hand, and finally they clinch
lite nutter by saying that only f 1.80 a
Iiund is offered. That price may Ik
offered, but the fanners who produce the
oil are too sharp to sell at less tlian $2.5(
a pound, and they will hold it and beat
the sj-cculators at their own game."
Why is not more of it raised?"
'Tho mint requires peculiar soil am)
sj-ccial care is needed both in the raising
of the plant nnd the distilling of the oil.
Tho crop is grown on land tliat is moist
and has a rich, sandy loani. The mint ii
planted in furrows thirty inches uiart,
and while growing requires a great deal
of cultivation, as every weed has to be
kept out. Otherwise the oil would not be
good. When full grown and in bloom it
Is cut with a scythe nnd liauled to the
still as moil as it is wilted.
"Large steam tubs with tightly fitting
covers are ued to hold the mint, v. hich
is tramped down thoroughly. The steam
is turned on at the bottom, and. passing
upward through tlie mass of mint, vapor
izes the oil and carries it out I hrough a
pipe at the top. This pipe rnrrics the
steam and oil into a spiral woitn or cooler
surrounded by cofd water. Here the
(.team is condensed into water and the oil
settles on top of it. Both now iass to a
receiving tank, which lias an overflow
pile running from the bottom up nearly
to a level with the top. Tlie object ol
this is to draw off the water from th
liottom :uid li-.tve the oil to lie dipped
from the top. Tlie oil is as clear in coloi
as the host Lenwne. It is tacked in tin

A Vacation In Solitude.

Mr. William Brewster notes some in
t cresting features in the liabitsof a young
rvittiwate gull or the bt. Lawrence. He
brought home a young one. its mate lov
ing died of thirst, tho other one surviving
tbrougb the accidental discovery tliat the
bird drank only salt water! Both the
lirds obstinately refused to drink fresh
water. Observations on this bird by
Professor A. Hyatt allowed how slowly
and timidly it acquired the art of swim
ming and flying. Tho bird when first
forced to fly was thrown into the air.
and. to the surprise of Profeiwor Hyatt,
tlew with great rapidity and preciiion,
.'ireling about the house and through the
apple trees, and. finally, flew near him
several times in the greatest agitation till
lie caught the bird, which was completely
exliausted. For a long time tlie. liird
went through this maneuver, allowing
tliat while it knew how to fly it could
not alight, though it finally acquired this
faculty. Professor E. S. Morse in Poih

In parts of France and Italy, instead of
dogs, a pig is used. The kind known as
the Pcrigord pig is thought to Ins the most
excrt. This animal also is susceptible of
a certain amount of training. A soon
as the pig lias disinterred the truille
bays r igmer, "it rem.us lor a lew mo
ments motionless like a pointer; but, if it
is kept waiting too long its gluttoiiv fre
quently gets the Is'tlei of its training."
According to the same authority, a trallle
pig, well taught, is worth ubout 200
francs. Leisure Hours.
