gree of heroism in time of danger. An in
stance of this I witnessed in th apring of
IVDI, when a freshet in th A la ha ma river
caused th country on each side to be over
flowed by water for many mile.
The ncroe on the river plantation were
the greatest sufferer. Their ca bins would
be under water almost before they knew that
danger threatened them, aud hundreds of
them were aometiuies found huddled together
upon some knoll au (Helen tly elevated to be
lov the water. There they often remained
t wo or three day and nights without food,
and expoeed to a soaking raiu. Fortunately,
the weather wo not cold.
Many relief expedition were sent out from
tin neighboring town to rescue them. These
insisted of one or mora boats, manned by
xpevt oarsmen and swimmers, and filled
with cooked provisions, blankets, etc One
lay th new came that the negroes on a cer
tain plantation had sought refuge upon a
9orn crib, around which the water was rapid
ly rising, and so rendering their condition
Exceedingly precarious. Two boats started
Jut at once to their assistance. In on of
these I went, accompanied by another whit

An amusing occurrence took place not long
ifter our starting. In the middle of a sub

He was promptly wrapped In a blanket and
set down, where for an hour he sat without
moving, enjoying the perfect rest of bis new
position. At the end of that time be began
to eat. I draw a veil over bis performance
in this line. We feared we had rescued bun
from a watery grave to kill him with roru
bread and Isuxm, although the uegro oars
man insisted that he had never heard of a
"niggah bein' hurt by too much to eat."

perfect silewe watching our approach.
But we did not appreciate their extreme
peril until aa the boat struck against the frail
log house, which was in the water to the edges
of the roof, it visibly shook and tottered. The
poor creature began to clamber hurriedly
down to the boat

And we had to leave ber. after throwing

Th Origin of Wheat
Wheat, which is now tba bread corn of
twelv European nations, and is fast sup-
lanting minis in America and several in
srior grains in India, was no doubt widely
rown in tb pre-historic world. Th Chl
a cultivated it 2700 B. C. a a gift direct
iom heaven; the Egyptians attributed its
rigin to His and th Greeks to Ceres. A
lassie account of the distribution of wheat
ver th primeval world shows ihat Ceres,
aving taught her favorite, Triptolerc-j,
apiculture and th art of bread making.

ose 01 distributing corn to all nations.
Ancient monuments show that the cultiva
on of wheat had been established in Egypt
efore the invasion of the shepherds, and
jere I evidence that more productive varie
es of wheat have taken the place of one, at
ut of the ancient sorts. Innumerable va
'eties exist of common wheat. Col. Le Cou
Hir, of Jersey, cultivated 150 varieties. Mr.
larwin mentions a French gentleman who
ad collected $! varieties, and the great firm
f seed merchants, Vilmorin-Andrieux et
'ie,, cultivate about tw ice as much in their
rial grounds near Paris. In their recent
rork on "Lea Meiileur Blear" M. Henry L.
Vihnorin has described sixty-eight varie
ies of bent wheat, which he has chused into
iven grouiis, though these groups can hardly
e called distinct species, since M. Henry L. de
ilmorin hascntesed three of them Triticuin
ulgare, Triticurn turgidum and Triticum
urura and has found the offspring fertile.
Three small grained varieties of common
heat were cultivated by the first lake

The existence of names for w heat in the
mat ancient language confirms this evi-
cenceof the antiquity of itsculture in all the
tore temperate parts of Europe, Asia ami
wfrica, but it seem improbable that w heat
as ever been found growing persistently in
wild state, although the fact has often been
sserted by toets, travelers ami historians.
Connubial Bonds In Australia.
An Australian colonist recently caused to
I e inserted in the neMsipera the follow ing
I rief announcement : "Not having heard of

c f the colony of Victoria already include a
atuteof limitations applicable to matter
cjonubial and covering thecaseof Mr. leary,
I. would seem that that gentleman is at
l-ngth prepared to run the risk ot commit
ting bigamy rather than continue any longer
i 1 the condition of single blnssedness. Irob
bly the above announcement is to l ex-
lained by a measure uow Ix-fore the parlia-

ability, shortly become law. This is the so
called divorce law amendmeut bill, by which

Lovely tints in the wrong place are reft
of their charm. A lemon colored couns
ten a nee the peculiar endowment of our
pig-tailed breathren who "bit tbe pipe"
is unbecoming. It suggest bile going
astray, and the inference is correct. Pain
beneath the ribs and shoulder blades,
constipation, dyspepsia, furred tongue
and sick headaches supplement this indi
cation of the bilious. For liver com
plaint and its multifarious symptoms,
Hostetters Stomach Bitters is an infalli
ble specific. It relaxes the bowels suffi
ciently, but without griping or violence.
To the secretion of bile it gives a due
impulse, but banishes an excess of that
saffron colored principle from the blood.
Sick headaches, sourness of tbe breath
and fur upon the tongue disappear when
it is used. It renews digestion, fortifies
tbe system against malaria, counteracts a
rheumatic tendency, and remedies inac
tion of the kidneys.
