An exchange says: "If people would
purchase green coffee and brown it in their
houses, there would be fewer cases of dip

coffee already browned than to prepare it,

A correspondent at New Madrid writes
to tlie Missouri Republican that tbo banks
of the Mississippi river at that point are
caving badly and suggests that the results
of the appropriation for the New Madrid
reach have been entirely Inadequate to the
amount appropriated. He says an Itemized
account of the expenditure there would be
timely. Those having the facts before
them, and who should be ready at any
time to give an account of their expendi
tures, may bo ablo to give the people of
this quarter information which would be
useful and satisfying.
Some time ago there was formed in
New York city a society called "Business
Men's Moderate Society." Its chief object
is to discourage the pernicious habit ot
treating. And now the Germans of Cincin
nati have formed an organization called
the "Teutonic Anti-Treating Society," thus
perpetuating the custom of tho fatherland.
These are steps in tho right direction. ' It
is fully conceded that tho custom of reci
procal drinking exerts a most potent influ
ence in creating intemperate habits.
When anti-treating societies become more
general they will effect more in behalf of
temperance than tho most earnest advocates
of legislation and constitutional prohibition
can ever hope to accomplish.
Some weeks ago Chief Myers sent sev
eral pieces of jewelry to L. Bowman & Co.,
St. Louis, to be made over into different
forms. The jewelry comprised several valu
able diamonds which were to bo reset, and
which ho prized very highly more on ac
count of their being heirlooms than for
their intrinsic valuo. The firm acknowl
edged the receipt of the goods and that
was all tho chief heard from them for sev
eral weeks, when he wrote enquiring if the
jewelry was done and received anwer that
it was and had been sent back ten days be
fore. But the iewolry had not arrived
lere, nor has it yet. An investigation
proved that it was lost at Du Quoin on its
way down here, and that no further trace of
it can bo found. It Is value is several hun
dred dollnrs, for which Bowman & Co., are
responsible to the chief.
Tho usefulness of railroads in promo

in good temper, frankly admitting that the

of tho south, and that every member
of his command received a "vast amount"
of valuable instruction on tho trip. Where
upon tho Springfield Republican remarks
that Massachusetts "ought to be in a teach

remembered that tho last time the Ninth
Massachusetts distinguished itself in the

-Tho secretary of the Brlstish Meteor
ological council says that Id the paBt de
cade no progress has been mao in predict
mg tho character of weather to be expected
in any given Buason; but the New York
Herald U dutcrmlood that tho Droblom
shall bo solved. It traces a direct connoc
tlon botween the unusual solar activity in
1881-2 ami the meteorological prodigies of
tne present spring. Tho effect of tn un
usually hot sun is to Increase the evapora
tion from the tropical ocean. The moisture
thus takon up is carried northward by the
trade winds and ultimately condensed in
the vicinity of Dm Buhring sea. In this
case it is buhl that the warm vapor-laden
winds from the Pacific are deflected noith
ward aud tho modifications extended past
tho mountains to tho central basin and
Manitoba region. From observations al
ready mado it concludes that when a dry
winter sots in, with deficiency of rainfall
on the Pacific coast, the cold waves from
British America will encounter no warm
currents from tho western plains and the
season will bo a severe one. Also that
when abnormally high barometer prevails
iu Manitoba and Canada In winter, the se
quel will be a cold and frosty spring in the
United States. Observations at the begin
ning of tho year, taken in a few points in
British North America, it holds, will en
able the prediction of tbo two ensuing sea
sons. TIIE RIVER IMPROVEMENT COM
MITTEES. N, O. Tlmcn-Domocrat.
The list of committees appointed by the
commercial bodies of the various Mississip
pi Valley cities, to co-oporata with tho St.
Louis central river committee in securing
proper attention and legislation from con
gress, respecting the improvement ot the
Mississippi, shows that tho movement has
spread more rapidly and widely, and that
it possesses greater strength than even its
most ardent friends foresaw.
It was only a few months ago that the St.
Louis Merchants' Exchange suggested the
appointment ot a committee to visit Wash
ington and prevent a failure of an appro
priation for the river, such as occurred hit
season; the canvass for sub-committees was
begun even later, and yet 23 have already
been organized and will co-operate with the
central committee in St. Louis. Every
point except Cincinnati to which overtures
have been made, has accepted the proposi
tion, and 10 states are now represented on
these committees Minnesota, Iowa, Mis
souri, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Tennes
see Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana.
It is gratifyiug to see the west and north
joining as heartily in this movement as the
lower river states. The great state of Iowa
seems to be thoroughly enthused over it,
and all the leading towns have appointed
committees, while far distant Minnesota
and Kansas demand, through their leading
commercial bodies, the improvement of the
There are seven months yet remaining
before congress meets, plenty of time for
further organization. If it keupj up as
briskly as it has done; if new committees
are appointed as rapidly as they have been
in the past few-weeks; if, in fine, this move
ment continues to spread and acquire new
strength, the central committee will be
able to present to congress a demand for
river improvement signed by nearly every
commercial body in the Vulley, and so
strongly backed that it will not be over
looked or refused, as it was at the last ses

Springs of coldest water whowe medical
qualities have . stood the test of
more than sixty years continual use, the
waters of each of a' different kind, serve a

Springs are in a mountain valley whose
sides are of perpendicular cliffs, a hundred
feet high, jutting out here and there in
fantastic thapes resembling beasts and birds.
Tho woodland paths are a continual temp
tation to long and delightful rambles of

AN ARTIFICIAL LAKE
for boating and fishing has been added
to the natural scenery, bounded on one side
by cliffs at whoso base tho water reaches a
depth of ten to fifteen feet and tho other is
a gradual slope from tho hills, the whole
covering several acres of ground. .
"No. 1" tho "Iron Spring"has properties
that aro unsurpassed as a tonic and is almost
a specific for malaria.
"No. J8" tho"Magncsia," is a never-failing
remedy for dyspepsia, and liver or kidney
troubles, and tbo "Alum Spring" does
the best service as a wash for eruptions or
disease of the skin.
A new buth house is by no means the
least among tho latest additions.
The cottages have been thoroughly renova

and springs; new cottages have been built;
