Cultivation of Nutmeg.

Btranan, on the south aide of the bay, we
uwuea oetaae a clear rippling stream, and,
havinsr ordered tio whnln of t.h
march in Indian fllj in front, we itarted by a
uiue ruggea paw into uie mountains, with
my interpreter im mediately behind me and
the rajah just in front. Every foot of the
journey, which waj laborious in the extreme,
disclosed fresh scer es of verdure and tropical
splendor. Winding along the Bides of deep
ravinpg, sometimes dragging ourselves up the
creepers and undoi growth, we ultimately at
tained an. altitude of about 1,000 feet above
the sea, and then entered the nutmeg coun-
u jr. uie wo uuueu ana rusted. Tbe rajah
pulled some of ti e nutuiogs and explained
how far they were from being ripe.
Having rested si fhViently we again started
forward, and after scrambling along for
about an hour wo gained a fine piece of table
land, over which we traveled Tor about an
other half an how, when we reached three
houses erected in tae very heart of the forest.
These wore used by the natives for drying the
nutmegs. The country wasevery where mag
nificent, and the aoma of the spice laden air
delicious. Nutme; and other equally valu
able trees were everywhere growing in great
profusion. The fruit of the nutmeg in ap
pearance resombli a pear, and when ripe
opens and displays the nut covered with a
beautiful red coat ng of mace. The nuts are
then picked from the trees, put into baskets
and taken to tlu houses, where they are
husked and placed on shelves. They are then
partially roasted over a slow fire until all the
moisture is extracted. After this they are
cooled and carried down to the village in nets
ready to be hart-red to the Bugis, Arabs,
and other traders who frequent the gulf in
their small prows or jimkos at the proper sea
son. Glasgow Mf il
Ladies who are really gentle of heart and
manners should olserve certain points of
honor among thomselves. A gentlewoman
will not allow a servant, however faithful, to
gossip to her of other homes in which she
may havo lived. She will know instinctively
thnt it is hor duty to teach the nurse girl, the
cook, the house maid, that gossip is as bad in
the kitchen as in : he parlor. A gentlewoman
will not take a.iy the servants of other
ladies. This sort of bribery and stealing is
common, and ma ly mistresses do not seem to
see any dishonor nit. It is not honorable to
take away a cool; from a good home on the
promise of pivim; her a dollar extra. Re
cently a well known lady waited anxiously
for her nurse to sppear in the morning. The
girl had left the remises for good, and when
search was mad for her and she was found,
admitted that Mrs. A had promised to
give her a new dress if she would leave her
employer ami tae service elsewhera Ser
vant stealing is not so ld as child stealing,
but it is bad enough for women to be
avhamed to be engaged in it. New Orleans

Washington Oitt, June 12. Civil Serv
ice Commissioner Roosevelt returned to th
city yesterday a id the commission, all the
members being r resent, approved the report
in the investigation of the Troy postoffloa.
Civil Service Commissioner Thompson said
to a Star repor ter that the commissioners
found a singular state of affairs in connec
tion with tbe Troy postoffioe, growing out
of tbe existence of a popular opinion there
that nmler the new Republican ostmaster it
was useless for any one not a Republican
and a member ol a particular faction to ap
ply for exuiiiinai ion for appointment. Men
were even designated by ward managers to
take the exam nation. Under the recent
Democratic administration a similar opinion
prevailed, and n Republicans applied. The
commissioners d id not considor tbe postmas
ter at fault.
Two Kxariimttlons Wiped Oat.
The result of tbeir visit was the annulment
of the last exani.nution held under tbe Dem
ocratic postmaster, and the first and only one
held under the I ew postmaster. In addition
tbe commissioners published a card, asaurmg
the people of IVoy that the examination!
would be conducted and appointment made
without regard to indorsements or party con
nections. Commissioners Lyman and Roose
velt will soon have for Indianafxilia Then
Mr. Roosevelt v ill return here and Governor
Thompson will join Mr. Lyman in an expe

At the Charity Entertainment.
Havo you ever carefully inspected the au
dience in atten lance at the average charity
concert? It is usually a sort of a poor rela
tion audience. Tickets aro sold to wealthy
people, who take them becauso the object la a
worthy one, in their opinion, but they do not
care to atteud the entertainment themselves,
ao they shower ;heir tickets among their poor
relations, who are only too glad of a chance
to go to some wrt of a show. If there are
no poor relations to be favored the tickets
are given to tbs postman, the milkman, the
grocer or the butcher, and, as a consequence,
the audience T.'hich assembles is composed
partially of the lower middle class and of the
man whose gn atest pride is to mention the
name of some -veil known millionaire aa his
wife's cousin. But all the same the deserv
ing charity ge the money, and the artists
who volunteer doubtless appear before a
more appreciate veaudianoe. ChicagoIIerald.

From a gentleman of Texas to his own
people, and all others over the country.
Hear what he says:
I have been a practical druetrist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time have had occasion to examine, try,
and notice tbe efiect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as I
have suffered untold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
nna nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
until about one year ago, I was in
duced by a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B, or Bo
tanic Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part, I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county tbat I am entirely cured, with no
traces of the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B. B.
B., which I consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
to man. I have been subject to ins
flammatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have had
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago. at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing the nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I had only
eaten six meals, and could scarlely sit up
without support; but after using three
bottles I was able to relish my meals and
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest pain
felt sinse that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until mv
regular weight was. again attained, 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this un
paralleled and remarkable discovery. B.
B. B. , cured me in mid winter, at the
very time my eufferines and misery were
the greatest. I take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully,
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all sufferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, but tbe firm of McKay &
Adams, who handle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its superior merits.

A Woman's Discovery.
"Another wonderful discovery has
been made, and that, too, by a lady in
this country. Disease fastened its
clutches upon her and for seven years she
withstood its severests tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months she
coughed incessantly and could not sleep.
She bought of U9 a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption and was
so much relieved on taking the first dose
tbat she slept all night, and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Her
name is Mrs. Luther Lutz." Thus write
