Benefits of Travel.
A get tleman who has just returned from
an exte isivo traveling tour through the north
and wft.t said to a party yesterday: "I have
been among all classes of people since I left
Atlnntt , and I have witnessed that which is
great it. art and m nature. My conviction is
that trt vi l makes a man bet ter and kinder at
heart. It enlarges his vision, it ojens up the
narrow channels of his mind, and above all
things tt kills pedantry and putty vanity.
When I left Atlanta a few wpeks ago I felt
self imr ortant aud my brain seemed too large
for my Imt. I felt that wherever I went I
would t take an impression, but such illusions
wore d asolved, as I found myself in New
York, ushing my way through tho throng
a great pulsing ocean of humanity, who no
more L sated me thnn they did the smallest
bootbla.-k. Wherever I went I found it so,
until 1 longed to get right hero in Atlunta,
where 1 would rather live than In any
city in t his universe. I come book bumbled,
but alrt ady 1 begin to feel my identity and
recover some of my waning self esteem ; but 1
wiieve that travel is a liberal educator. It
cultivates a man without making him pedan
tic, and gives him opinions which are not
hobbies He becomes refined but not punc
tilious, discriminating but not exclusive."
The Russian vice consul in Loipsic, M. de
Fircks, has left at the Berlin aquarium, to be
taken care of during bis absence in Russia,
says a c orrespondent, two rare monkeys. One
is a red haired orang outang, and the other a
black chimpanzee. They were sent to Berlin
in a box lined with straw, and their traveling
outfit Included a table and rocking chair.
They vera each dressed in a long flannel
bourne is, and each wore a red fez to protect
it from the cold. Their suite consisted of a
little n gro boy from the Congo. When they
were put into their cage in the Berlin aqua
rium tie other monkeys there greeted them
with a mighty chattering. At home they are
great pits, and they are very tamo and play
ful. T icir prescribed diet is as follows: For
breakfast, specially prepared milk; for din
ner, rice or semolina in bouillon and roast
veal or real cutlets, In addition to which the
chimpanzee gets wine and water, and the
orang t utang two bottles of milk ; for supper,
they have meat and bread and each two bot
tles of milk, while the chimpanzee gets an
apple b sides, and all day long as much wine
as it Lkes. Before going to sleep the negro
boy bat hes them. Boston Herald.
Willi im Kelly, the artist, who lives at
Lenox, Mass., worked for eleven years on a
piece of mosaic wood, which, when finished,
present id the appearance of a fine oil paint

has ent tied "Sunset," and at the distance of
six or e ght feet it would be taken for an oil
representation of that phenomenon. It is
compo d of 230,000 pieces of wood or about
8,200 to the square inch. The effect of color
is prodt ced by the variety of colors in the
different woods, there being 128 kinds of

IT REMOVED THE FIMPLE8 .
Round Mountain. Tex.,March 29, '87.
A lady friend of mine has for several
years been troubled with bumps and
pimples on her face and neck, for which
she used various cosmetics in order to
remove them and beautify and improve
her complexion, but these local applica
tions were only temporary and left her
skin in a worse condition.
I recommended an internal preparation
known as Botanic Balm which I have
been using and selling about two years;
she used three bottles and nearly all
pimples have disappeared, her skin is
soft and smooth and her general health
much improved. She expresses herself
much gratified, and can recommend it to
all who are thus affected.
