It is strange that in times of prosperity
men usually get deeper in debt instead of
gettjng out. It is hoped, however, that the
hard times of the past seven years have
taught the evils of debt, aud that every man
will avail himself of the returning prosper
ity to get free of all embarrassments. Good
timfis inspires a spirit of speculation and
adventure, and men resort to temporary
expedients to procrastinate the paymenf of
what they owe, hoping and expecting to
use the monv in hand and to become sud
denly rich by wild speculation. When the
crash came in 1S73 a majority, it is safe to
say, found themselves greatly indebted
and in many instances, in fact we might
say in the majority, farms and homesteads
were covered with mortgages
drawing a rite of interest which wus
ruinous by reasons of the depreciation of the
value of all kinds of farm products, and of
labor, many articles of production being
scarcely worth tiie cost of transportation to
market. The value of real estate of neces
sity became demoralized and fell in keeping
with the value of labor ana the products of
the soil, until, in many instances, it became
absolutely unsaleable, and when it could be
sold at all, it was at a price not to exceed the
mortgage debt, and often much lcss.al though
at the time the mortgage was given it did
not exceed one-quarter to one-third of the
value of the real estate. The experience
was indeed a sad one, and many were un
able to financially survive. We arc glad
to know that many have learned by their
experience that it is suicidal to be in
debt and are now bending every effort to
free themselves from the monster, which has
been eating up their substance. Crops
have been good for the Iat two years, and
prices for the past year have been such as
to fairly remunerate the planter, and with
good crops and fair prices for thorn 1ms
come a demand for labor at living wages.
The wise and discreet arc taking advantage
of this state of affairs, and using every dol
ar of surplus funds in removing the mo rt
gage which they have been compelled to
carry, that they may iu fact call their farms
their own. We would advise every one to
adopt this policy, and live up to it stead
fastly until they are entirely free from debt.
Wo would advise every one
to keep out ot debt, to buy nothing,
unless it is absolutely necessary,
on time. We may reasonably expect a
period of general prosperity for the next ten
years, unless, perchance some great and un
expected calamity should befall the coun
try. If this bo true wo can see no reason
why the people should not, with good crops
fair prices, abundance of money and active
industry, get out of debt and be free and
independent ftom the fear of creditors,
sheriffs, constables and money lenders with
in the next two or three years, which is not
moro than half the period of reasonable
prosperity, which, from tho signs of the
times, wo liavo feason to expect, leaving tho
remaining turns in which to accumulate a
little ahead before- tho next financial storm
sweeps over tho country, that they may be
able under their own unmortgaged roof to
smile at its fury, for to a people entirely
out of debt it matters but little compar
atively speaking, whether prices are high

Nutmegs grow on little trees which look

Origin of the Horseshoe Superstition.
In the very early times, says a writer
in lialdwin's Monthly, among the Cel
tic race an clllgy of Hie patron saint, so
common in churches and temples, was
much used in tho dwellings and work
shops of the peojile, as so-called "pro
tection" against ill-fortune. The "glo
ry" above the head of these figures
which later was often rudely carved in
wood and painted was represented by
a circular piece of polished metal, to
convoy tho effect of tho shining halo or
nimbus, frequently seen in illustrations
of the Virgin and other scripture sub
jects. Often this metal nimbus was of
semi-circular form, and after tho llguro
itself had disappeared by reason
of decay, tho nimbus remained and
was suspended in sonic prominent
placo at tho entrance door, or other
jioint commanding view. The efligios
in question wcro not uncommonly
seen by tho side of tho doorway. In
course of time the nimbus was much
used as a substitute for tho latter, and
was sold in shops for this purpose. Tho
tradition of good luck, as embodied in
tho horseshoe theory, may thus bo easily
traced, since it became a common oc
currence for the faithful adherent in tho
belief in charms ami symbols to adopt
tho horseshoe, worn to brightness, in
tho absence of any other, which ho
nailed over his cottage door. Hence a
piece of metal of this shape became as
sociated in tho common mind with su
pernatural presence and care, in keep
ing with tho belief attaching to tha
original figure of the patron saint.
A Bremen newspaper says that tho
North German Lloyds have engaged to
convey three thousand Roumanian
Jews to New York. The emigrants are
sick of their own country, and have
been enabled to seek fresh homes across
the Atlantic by the liberality of their
coreligionists in France and Germany.
The North German Lloyds have under
taken to find orthodox food for the
emigrants during tho passage. The
patrons provide funds not only for the
passage, but also for the purchase of
Louies and farms in America.
A rather curious phenomenon has
been observed lately at Sparks & Co.'s
flouring mill nt Alton. In passing
through a room in the second story in
comparative darkness, it wax noticed
that tho rapidly running belts wero
aglow with what appeared like phos
phorescent light. At first this was as
cribed to tho reflection from the lamps
on the copper rivets with which the
belts are constructed. After all tho
lights were taken away, however, tho
bells presented clearly defined illumin
ated outlines, and when the' hand of a
spectator was held close to them, bright
little globules attached themselves to
the palm and lingers, being especially
noticeable on the thumb nail. No heat
was felt, and it is mure than probable
that the light was of electrical origin, be
ing tmusuuly bright on account of somo
peculiar state of tho ntmosphcre.
The minister of the United Slates at
St, Petersburg, in a dispatch to the
department of state, draws a gloomy
picture of the present economic and
social condition of Russia. The grain
crop of the past season, he says, has
proved a failure, and American wheat
is imported now even at St. Petersburg.
It is also entering ut Odessa and other
Russian ports. Ilut a large market for
this American cereal cannot he predict
ed, as very little bread made from
wheat is used in Russia; the mass of tho
people-must have a cheaper and coars
er article, such as rye or Indian corn.
The scarcity of grain in the empire is
so groat that it was currently reported
and generally believed that the imperial
government "was considering tho pro
priety of prohibiting tho exportation of
rye. There will be much suffering
among tho poor classes. Minister
Foster quotes from The (folos of St.
Petersburg as follows: "From nil sides
comes news of this harvest being below
the average, of want and hunger, from
which will spring disease and very
likely death. Reetles, worms and lo
custs arc eating up tho corn; tho dimin
uitiion of catflo surpasses all belief;
diphtheria id taking oil' tho coming
generation; bread-stuffs have already
reached live kopeks per pound. Every
one feols that Russia does not subsist
by tho produce of its own land, but is
wasting its capital in cutting wood,
selling surplus cattle, pulling straw
from iu thatched roofs and depriving
itself of iU fancy clothes aud shoes."

A Strange Story.
Viannn I.fltter to tho London Globe.
In the Mavergasse lives a very pretty
seamstress, Caroline W. Last week a
gentleman met her on the stairs as s!io
was about to take an evening stroll.
His looks were wild and anxious, and
he shivered, while tho sweat stood on
his brow. He complained of cold and
thirst, got Fraulein W. to light a tire.
and sent for some wine, poured him.selt
out a glass, and just as he was raising
it to his lips dropped down dead. " ho
is he? What is lie? What do you know
of him?" a.ked the police of the girl,
and all she could answer was, "Noth
ingabsolutely nothing." In his pock
ets wcro found a few florins, but no
card, no letter, which could serve as a
means of identification. The post mor
tem revealed extensive heart disease as
the immediate cause of death. There
was nothing for it but to tako the body
to the Morgue, although by the dress of
the deceased he was evidently a person
of means. Hero tho body 'lay three
days, and from here would assuredly
have gone per "No. 0" to the cemetery
and havo remained forever unrecog

First Secretary of the American Consul
General, accompanied by a friend, como
and asked to sco tho occupants of tho
death-chamber. Tho two gentlemen
passed down the row of silent sleepers
till they came to where lay the body of
tho man whose sudden de'ath has just
been described. "Good God!" shouted
Mr. llunning, "there is Eugene T. Bell!"
"Two witnesses aro required to identify
a body," said the warden, and, as Mr.
Hunning's friend had not been person
ally acquainted with the deceased, Mr.
Weaver, the American Consul for Vien
na, was fetched in all haste, and he,
too, at once recognized in tho deceased
the remains of his colleague, Mr. Bell,
American Consul General in Pcsth. A
mere chance thus led to the identifica
tion of a body w hich would otherwise
have been buried a few hours later in a
nameless and silent grave. The fato of
Mr. Bell would then have remained for
ever one of those mysteries of which
