EDITEJ IN THE INTEREST OF THE CAIRO
"The Rev. William M. Baker, the au
thor of "Blessed Saint Certainty" and a
long line of preceding novels, has removed
from Boston to Philadelphia, to take charge
of a Prcsbytetian church in that city."
"Mr.T. A.Throllope has written an
elaborate essay, with illustrations, to show
that Guido'B so-called "Cenci Portrait" has
no connection with Beatrice Cenci an en
tirely superfluous piece of work, it may bo
said, since the publication of the last Ital
"In Lord Baconfield's library is an edi
tion of Wallet's poems which was at one
time iu the possession of Edmund Burke,
and has his autograph, "Edmund Burke,
Besconsfleld," on the title page."
"A kahk American book was found in a
collection recently sold in London. Jt was
a copy of the Common Prayer translated
into the Mohawk language for the use of
the Indians and published at New York in
1715. Few copies of this edition survived
the expatriation of the Mohawk tribes to
Canada for aiding the British in the War
"In the city of Hanover, in a deserted
churchyard, lies the tomb of Clurlottc
Kestner Goethe's "Lotta." The monu
ment was erected in 1783. It was of mar
ble and Btrongly bourn! with iron clasps.
At its base is the inscription : "This sepul
chre, purchased for all eternity, is not pei
mitted to be opened." Is not permitted to
be opened? But one day the busy wind,
swiftly plucking a tiny beech seed from a
neighboring tree, bore it quickly to the
place, and in silence and unnoticed let it
fall into a crevice in the foundation. The
years pass on ; the little seed takes root and
gTows within its narrow home. At last
slowly as if mocking the arrogance of man,
it raises the massive stones and bursts the
iron clasps asundtr.
This supulchre, purcased for all eternity,
is not permitted to bo opened !"
"In these days all men and women read
something, but the trouble is that by read
ing in a single vein, which so strongly ap
peals to their individual tastes and personal
idiosyncrasies that it is not study at all,
they lose their power to study anything
else. The rule for successful and profitable
reading, would, in the light of these facts,
seem to be to read only what one does not
ike to read. That reading which costs no
effort, and necessarily dissipates the power
of study, is that which wo know to be im
portant in itself, and in its bearings upon
broad knowledge and culture should most
engage our time and attention. The
trouble is, not that we do not read enough,
but we read so much of that which simply
pleases us as to destroy our power to read
that which will edify aud enlarge us. Dr.
J. G. Holland.
w I think it is not too much to say that
we might go through the Waverly Novels
from beginning to end, without finding
one page, perhaps not even one line, that
we would hesitate to read aloud to any
young people, old enough to understand
that evil exists in the world, and that the
truly virtuous are those who know how to
refuse the evil and to choose the good.
And I who having written novels all my
life, know more than most readers how to
admire a great novelist should esteem it a
good sign of any son or daughter of mine
who would throw a whole cart-load of
modern fiction into the gutter, often its
fittest place, in order to clasp a huge whole
somo armful of Walter Scott." Mrs. Craik.
Mr. W. D.Howells writes to the pupils
of the Jefferson (Ohio) school who have
been reviewing his life and works: "As
you get on in the 'forties' you will under
stand that life is chiefly what life has been,
and that an author is merely one who has
had fortune to remember more of it than
ther men. A good many wise critics will
tell you that writing is inventing; but I
know better than that. It is only remem
bering. And I want to whisper to you that
a great many thoughts, feelings and ideas
in my books are those which I remember
to have had in Jcffersons when I was a boy
there. By-and-by you will all bo authors,
or rather you will realize that you havo
been authors, as you set down tor the print
ed page or for the circle of your own fire
side, the history of your life. I hope that
history will bo for each of you a true and
aweet and good one without harm lor any
living soul in it, nd with help for all who
come to know It. Reflect that you aro mak
ing your book now lo words and doods, and
that the older you grow the moro you be
come merely that book, merely tho record
of your former self, nd keep this in una
as you study other men's books. Be sure
in oracr that you may get the truth from
them and not be hurt by what is false and
evil in them. Literature is life and a
clean conscience is the best criticism."

Chicago, August 5.U has just been
discovered that ever since Monday a myste
rious conclave of prominent Irishmen,
numbering something near 100, has been
in session at one of the hotels of the city.
Their deliberations have neon held under
lock and key, and in a room padded as to
the flijor with sawdust and otherwise se
cluded, There aro present John Warren,
of Lowell, Mass., a strong friend of Ben.
Bulor; Thos. C. Quinn, of Peoria, a co-laborer
of Crowe; George J. West, of Provi

branches of the Land League; ltcv. Father
George C. Betts, of St. Louis; George C.
Cunningham, of New Haven, and many
other well known agitators. Nobody has
been let into their secrets, and their meet
ings have excluded all reporters. It has,
however, leaked out that thege men are a
"dynamite crowd": that their deliberations
are not as to whether dynamite shall be
used against England, but as to the most
feasible way of using it.

that tho wood of the pear tree can bo

It is then returned to the press, and by
this means the wood becomes t horough

It seems lo be a characteristic failing
of most coachman to lay the lash upon
a horse that exhibits fear at an object
in the street or beside the road. Mr.
Bergh, president of tho Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to AnimaU, says
in the organ of that society, what every
reasoning being ought to know, and
that is to never whip your horse for be
coming frightcnoil at any object by the
roadside, for if he sees a stump, a log,
or a heap of tan-hark in the road, aud
while he is eying it carefully and about
to pass it, you strike hith with tho whip,
it is the log, or slump, or the tan-hark
that is hurling him in his way of rea

more frightened. G.ve him time to
smell all of these objects, and use the
bridle to assist you in bringing him
carefully to these objects of fear.
lhe anti-.Iewisli riots in Southern
Russia resulted in the destruction ot
property valued at $3, 600, (KM), a smallor
amount than the first accounts report
ed. All the leading rioters have now
been tried at Kief bv court-martial, and
several were condemned to loss of civil
rights and terms of imprisonment vary
ing from a few months to three ana a
half years. Otio individual, at least.
was condemned to twenty years' exile
in Siberia. At Odessa, where the
prompt action of tho authorities pre
vented much damage being done, the
rioters were tried by a magistrate, and
a few of tho principals were sentenced
to undergo short terms of imprison
ment, varying from one week to three
months. It is now considered pretty
certain that these riots may be ascribed
to the impoverished condition of the
country through tho failure of last
year's harvest; their hatred ot the Jew
aa a money-lender; their jealousy ot his
wealth; their desire to revenge them,
selves. upon thoso whom they considei
to have robbed them, aud the hope in
