When the Siackbouse Medical Institute
offered to give free treatment and medi

quainting the puUic with their methods

many who declared it to be impossible
Some there were, who looked wise and
said: ' It cannot be, no one can do it."

and carefully. owr 500 prominent citizens
of Davenport, Rock Island, Moline and

But Dr S'ackhouoe and his associates
have yet another cffer f:r the benefit of
those in need of mmiical attention. Now
in order to ftill further demonstrate the
great efficiency of their treatment, they
will, until January Is. 1893. treat all
patients and all diseases at the normal

The Chinese houseboat is a flat bottomed

Rather more than the anterior third con
sists of open deck, where the fourteen

Is furnished with a tall and strong mast,
and with the least fair wind up goes a
Chinese sail, ribbed with the light bamboo.
When the wind drops eighteen men jump
ashore, fifteen of them tow the houseboat
along with from 300 to 1,000 feet of bamboo
rope, chanting as they pull, while two men
keep the rone clear of projecting rocks
along the river bank, and the remaining
one runs beside the rest, spurring them to
their work by shouting, waving his arms
and clapping his hands.
Often the banks become too precipitous
for this "tracking," and the fourteen row
ers take to their oars. The mode of pro
gression is changed ten or fifteen times a
day. Often the boat crosses the river to
gain quieter water or a smoother bank,
and is carried down a quarter of a mile in
the course of this maneuver, though all
hands stamp tbe deck fiecceiy, row with
desperation and fill the air with discordant
yells. Cor. Montreal Witness.
An extraordinary collection of birds is
kept at the residence of Mr. W. Ingram,
M. P., at Westgate, living happily in every
variety of condition; in confinement in
very large cages, in spacious voieries, in
the walled in pleasance, and lastly, with
perfect liberty and undipped wiugs. There
is one class of birds in which Mr. Ingram
is particularly rich he has ten albinos
viz., three white jackdaws, three whit
blackbirds, a white thrush, a white star
ling, a white hedge sparrow and a pure
white variety of the herring gull, caught
iu the neighborhood
One of the white jackdaws will go with
the members of the family to the seashore

more wonderful, this affectionate bird is

There are a few men in thia town who

General Thomas I James is one of

was invited to join a coaching party in B

sentiment by which the affection of the
opposite sex may be attracted and retained.
inueeu me oirus lurinsu no exception to
the sweeping assertion that " 'tis love that
gives the key to all earth's music." They
sing from love and happiness, says one;
from love and rivalry, another asserts;
while joy and buoyancy of spirits are said
by a third authority to be answerable for
their music. That most of the species sing
best in the spring is well known, the mo
tive that is responsible for the generous
outpour of song being a result of its influ

in tbe old haunts, to be surrounded by
plenty and to feel the matchless sweetness
of returning springtime.
