some MoTe Women,
In October, 1877,the brigatine Moor
burg left Fooohon in China, for Biel
bourne; oarryjng four seautien, ihe
captain,mate, and last but by nro means
least, the captain's wife, who was a
little delicate woman, and her baby.
They had not gone far on their voyage
ere the crew fell sick, and one after
another died. The mate did not suc
cumb entirely, but beca me reduced to
a skeleton, and was incapable of doiig
much; while the captain himself was
almost in as miserable a plight, his
legs having swollen tremeneously,and
his body being a mass of sores. His
wife alone held up under the terrible
heat, although shehad nursed the sick
tall they needed nursing no longer,had
looked well to her baby's needs, had
done duty at the wheel in regular
watches, and taken her share of sea
man's work beside. To make matters
worse, the ship sprung a leak, which
the captain luckily was able to stop;
and eventually the Moorburg got into
Brisbane harbor, half-full of water,
with two sick men on board as her crew
all told, and a woman at the helm; the
gallant woman bringing not only the
ship but her baby safe into port.
Some time in 1871, a woman named
Theresa Maria, dwelling in the vil I- go
of Fratel, on the frontier of Portugal
and Spain, on the way across the fields
with her husband's dinner, was told by
a shepherd boy that he had seen a wolf
prowilng about. Never havirj seen one
in her llfe,sho pus down her basket,and
looking eagerly around, described the
animal in the act of devouring a lamb.
Thinking to scare the brute from its
pray, the boy shouted at it and pelted
it with stones; so infuriating the wolf,
that it left its meal unfinished, and
made for its disturber, Jumping up at
the little fellow's face, tearing the
flesh, and then pulling him to the
ground. What did the horror stricken
onlooker do-run away ? Not she.
Plking up a large stone, she rushed
on the beast and slsed holi of him. In
vain he bit and tore her flesh ; the un
daunted woman contrived to keep his
throas closejy enfolded by her left arm.
while she battered his head with the
stone and at length killed him. Mean
while, the vilagers had been alarmed,
and came hurrying to her aid, armed
with guns, sticks and stones; meeting
Theresa on her way home covered with
blood from terrible wounds in her face
arms and hands. They carried her to
the hospital at Niza, where, pitiful to
tell, she explied exactly a month after
ward, consoled in her dying hours with
believing that she had not sacrificed
her life in vain. A false belief, alas I
Obr the shepherd-boy died of hydropho

Courageous in another way was a
woman of the Commune, who during
that terrible rising had worked day
and night in the hospital, assisting a
certain surgeon, whose services were
freely rendered to men ni ith whose
cause lie had no0 sympathy. When the
insurrection was quelled, the doctor
was arressed and marched off to be
tried by drum-head court martial. As
ho approached the door of the tribunal,
he mrdt his late female assistant coinng
out between two soldiers. "Why,
Adele I" lie exclaimed, "how eamie y "iu
here?" Looking hard at hihnu, wvith
unrecognising eyed, she replied: "I
don't know you, sir ;" a denitalihe se
down to a fear of acknowledging the
acquaintance of a doomed man. Not a
little to his surprise, lie got oil'and was
set at liberty, to learn that Adele had
been shot, and was on her wvay to death
when she had repudiated all knowledge
of him and forbore appealing for his
aid, rather than compromise him, and
render his chaunce a desperate one.
A poor servant girl of Noyon, in
France, once proved herself a real
heroine. A common sewer of great
depth had been opened for repairs, the
opening being covered at night with
some planking; but those in charge of
the operations neglected to place any
lights near, to warn way-farors or the
danger in their path. Four men re
turning home from work stepped on
the planks, which being frail amid rot
ten gave way under their weight, and
precipitated them to the bottom. It was
some time before any one became aware
of what had happened; and whmen the
people gathered round, no man among
the crowd was daring enough to re
spond to the frantic entreaties or t he
wives of the entombed men by descend.
lug into that foul and loathsome depth.
Presently, a fragile-looking girl of
seventeen, stepping to the front, saId
quietly: "1,1. go downt and try to
save the poor fellows ;" and creatures
calling themselves men wvore not
ashamed to stand by and see Catharine
Vasseur let down on her valiant but
fearful mission. Then ensued a row
long minutes of anxious suspense be
fore the signal to haul up was felt, and
two at i breathing but unconscious
men were, with the gallant girl,
brough t to the sur face. Nigh exhaustedl
as the effort had left her, the heroic
maiden only stayed to gain breath be
fore descending again, regardliess of
the risk she ran.
Tihis second venture nearly proved
fatal. Upon reaching the bottom or
the sewer, and fastening a rope around
one prostrate form, Cathiarine felt as
Vough she were being strangled by aii
invisible hand. Udrortuiately, the
rope round hier own waist hmad becoine
unfastened ; and when, after groping
along the dripping, clammy well, her
hand touched it, she had not strength
sufmelent to pull it dlown. Dazed as she
was, she still had her wits about her
and loosing her long hair, twisted the
luxuriant tresses with the rope. The
rope was hauled u'p; and the horrified
crowd beheld the Inanimate form of
the brave young girl swinging by her
hair, and to all appearance dead. Fresh
al~r and prompi. adm inistration of stim
ulants brought her to consciousness,
and the happiness of knowing that, if
he had failed in saving all, her
brave endeavors had iestored three of
thie bread-winners to their familIes.
FARM AND GARDEN.
COOKHnD FOOD.-The results of feed
ing swine wAi cooked corn and meal,
instead of the uncooked article, arb
well known to every farmer. The gain
is fully twenty per cen;., which muok
more than covers the extra cost atten
and upon the course. The argument
may be brought against the method
that cooked food is not the natural diet
of the "feather world.', We are not
aware that our primitive man knew
very much of the many choice' viands
with which we are to day familiar:
but this does not lessen our appetite for
them in the least. When we look at it,
tastes are almost universally acquired.
There can be no objection to a change of
food, provided the kind substituted fills
the requirements of life giving quali
ties. We seldom boll corn for our
poultry, as we prefer to give that raw
as the evenItg meal; but for those who
choose, even this can be cooked to ad
vantage. If It is too much work to shell
thecorn, boll it on the cob and let the
fowls have the sport of rolling the ears
about as they pick their living. The
fowls will soon th e of a cooked diet en
tirely, but it is very easy to substitute
grain occasionally. Make the cooked
food varied, by giving a quantity of
potatoes one day, and cabbage or
onions for akiother, and so on through
the week; cracker crumbs from the
waste of the grocers' barrels and boxes
are capital to mix with the meal occa
sIonally; buy thematalow price. Then
let them pick the bones left from the
table, afterwari burning and crushing
them for material In making shells. Be

DO NOT NEGL.cT YOUR WELL.
Friend, you have a mmud hole at your
well ? Go for it at once. Do not eat or
sleep till It Id removed. Take a hoe
and drag out the mud and filth, and
then fill the hole with dry soil or sand.
Alter dolig this, shut out the pigs and
poultry froni the well, and keep them
out. If the curb is broken or rotted
down, replace with a new one. After
doing this, scrape away the grass and
surface soil around the well, and re.
)laco with it layer of and and gravel.
If, from the character of the land,.y our
well ever tills with water, cut a diteh

of a few yards, and have an outlet from
this to take oil' tihe wvater. The water

better still remove them with benzine.
Rinse thoroughly in water in which a
third of a cup of salt has been dissolv

small handful of starch put in. As
soon as the duster is dry take It down,
so that the wind will not blow the

Now Mineral Deposits are Formed.
The metallic solutions which -have for
med our ore depositis have been ascri
bed to two sources. One theory sup
poses that they have drained highly
metalliferous sones deep in the intert
or of the earth; the other, that they
have leached diffused metals from rooks
of different kinds comparatively near
the surface. The latter view is the
one that Professor Newberry favors.
However probable such a thi g might
seem, no evidence of the existence of
distinct metallio or metalliferous zones
in the interior of the earth has been
gathered. On the contrary, says Pro
fessor Newberry, volcazlo emissions,
which may be supposed to draw from
a lower level than water could reach,
are not specially rich In metallic mat
ters, and the thermal waters which
have by their depoqlt filled our mineral
veins musthave derived their metallic
salts from a zone not many thousand
feet from the surface.
The mineral springs which are now
doing a similar work, are but part of a
round of circulation o surface water,
which, failing from the clouds, pene
trates the earth to a point where the
temperature is such as to drive it back
in steam. This, with fluid water u nder
pressure and highly heated, possessing
great solvent power, may be forced
tnrough vast beds of rock, and these be
effectually leached by the process.
Should such rocks contain the minu.
test imaginary quantity of the metals
these must inevitably be taken into so
lution, and thus low toward or to the
surface, to be deposited when, by dini
nished temperature and pressure, the
solvent power of the menstruum Is dl.
minshed. It is evident from these
facts that we cannot trace the history
of the metals back beyond the Lauren
tian age. And since we find them dif
fused in greater or less quantity through
,the sedimentary rocks of all ages, and
