On the eorner 0t thte public square in
Kansas Oity, a nian has in operation
a musole-testing machine, which is
uperated by the aid of a sledge-hammer,
with which the indlvidual who wishes
to size up his muscles strikes a peg,
whion operates upon a leaver anti oe
vates a dial-board marked with nuin
ers. On a reoe.At evening a big, red
shirted man walked up, and atter sur
veying the aachiire, expectorated over
is 9it shoulder and oatually remarked
that he "could knock the studling out
of the machine" at one tell swoop. "A
al the man who swallows a b4ef, I
am'l" Ie jelled, and the spectatwrs
shuddered. "1 am a bold, bad man I"
ne continued. " on't somebody give
me a whirl I" No one accepted the
"-[ ant lately from the head waters of
Bitter creek," went on the bad man,
and asked the proprietor of the ma
chine how much he would give me to
"burst it the first kIck?"
"I don't want It busted," replied the
"I can make a piece light on the
Comique," screamedthe bad man, "and
another piece descend at the junction;
won't somebody please give me a show
for my white alley I"
A pale, thin, puny man, who looked
as if consumption would kill him be
fore breakfast, yawned a little and said
lie believed he would give him a whirl,
just once for the beer. The bad man
looked at him and smiled a contemptu
ous smile. "I want a man," he said.
"I want a great big man. Somebody
that I can taekle'with pride and horor
to my family, but I won't hit hard."
The bad man threw the sledge grace
fully, hit the peg, and the dial
marked 120 pounds. The thin man pick
ed up the sledge as if lie was right tired,
and tapped the peg for 240. The bad
man was a little surprised, and seizing
the sledge, spread himself and sent it
up to 300 retiring with a triumphant
look. The consumptive yawned again,
and, heaving the sledge with one hand
marked 400. The man who swallowed
a beefsteak was puzzled, but braced up,
and after swinging the maul, until his
eyes hung out on his checks, he hit
with territic force and fell on his back,
while the dial shot up to 425, The con
sumptivo man toed the mark, expector
ated on his hands, hit the peg once,
broke it short off, splintered the seldge,
shivered a show window across the
street with the concussion, and went
down his pocket for a chow of finecut,
while the board scored uip to 1,119 and
hung over the top unable to go fur
ther, with stanchions torn loose. Tiho
bad man from Bitter creek turned to
the consumptive and in awe-stricken
tones inquired: "Who might you be,
"Me?" softly inquired the consump
tive. "I am engiaged in a side-show,
where I break bars and lift horses with
my teeth. I am i poor health now
and dan't do much, but I hope to be
able to go to work soon. Would you
like to try another whirl?~'
"Not at all, mister,'' said the steak
~ swallower;i "excuse me ; I aim not feel
Ing well, and think I will go home and
* see the old woman. GooJl-by," and the
old man walked off like a hack horse
af ter the fair.
-I The Greeks held athletics in great
estimation. Their whole mode of life
I was conducted with reference to aug
menting their bodily strength ; some of
their piecept~s while drilling were ex
tremely rigid .They frequently anoin ted
their bodies to make them more supple
just before a combat they sprinkled
ft sand over themselves, so the grasp of
each one could be more firm. Theli re
- wards of the conquerors were applause
and the public proclamnationi of their
* names. The great public games of the
* Greeks were also a part of their rehi
* ~ gleus customs ;thiey were always begun
and enided with sacrillces. There were
-two modes of wrestlng exercise; one
was the erect posture,and the other was
the lying position; in strict, wrestlings
blows were nbt permiitted. Boxing
was a very favorite game. Tihose who
desired to appear its combatants in the
famous Olympic games were obliged to
spend months practicing at the gymna
stun. Tihe prize was a crown or wreath
of olive. Among the most celebrated
1.. Olympic victors was Alcibiades. The
4 ~ first of these Olympic gaines took
place 716 B. C.; they were abolished in
~394 A. D). in the reign of Theodoslus.
linmer's litad gives a clear and and in
teresting account of the gymnastic ex
ercise. This style of sport was reduced
to a perfect systemn, and was conducted
by public officers. At the close of the
eighteenth century gymnastics wore
largely practiced in Prussian schools,
Females are now fond of practicing
catlisthenics, an exercise quite like the
more simple forms of gy mnastics. in
France there are military gymnasties,
where they learn how to adroitly scale
walls by leaping on each other's
shoulders. The practices of the zouaves
are specimens of the military gymnast.
The games of running and leaping
were very popular in ancient times;
sometimes the racers were dressed in
lull armor. Ihe horse races received
the patronage of all Greece, yet
the prize was only a crownm of pine,
par. ely or olive.
The boxing sport was not establisbh
in England until the reigns of the
princes of the house of Brunswick, A
champion was named, who wore the
belt of honor, having proved that ho
was the best pugilist. Every gentle
mnan of distinction favored this ranme.
TIhere was a code of rules to be obser
ved in the practicing of boxing, which
became a favorite method of setling
both private and public disputes. This
style of sport has lost all Its once re
linedi prestige, and is now prohibited
in England and America.

BINTS To DAIRYMEN.-,-The most en
terprising and successful dairymen
carry on what is known as winter
dairying. Every one cannot make
butter in winter, and themajoity of
dairymen are compelled' to do 'their
business in the summer season. But
no one is obliged to sell his product as
soon as it is made unless it is so made
that immediate sale is -necessary to
preserve it from deterioration. If but
ter is well made and well packed It
may be kept for six months with per
feet safety, and some experts are con
vinced that the best made butter ripens
and improves in flavor by keeping, be
cause the particular essential oils
which give the aroma to good butter
become slowly developed when the
latter is perfectly well packed and pre
served from the atmosphere, Manufac
turers of goods rarely or never crowd
their products on the market as soon
as they are ready for sale. They watch
the markets, and the selling of their
goods li one of the most important
parts of their business. Their profits
depend in a great measure on selling
at the right time. It should be so with
the dairyman. But he cannot hold off
unless his butter is so well made and
packed that it may be kept over for
weeks or months without injury. Fall
trade butter, from the fresh growth of
grass which is now beginning to spring,
as the cool,dewy nights and seasonable
shows oecur, is of a choice a quality
as any. The success of the dairy busi
ness depends upon excellence of pro
duct and sales made when the highest
prices are current. Doubtless the more
suggestion of these points wfll draw
mature consideration to them from our
HANDLE DAInY STOCK KINDLY.-It
is important that dairy stock trom the
young calf to the old cow that is being
ted for beef, should be handled and
treated kindly. If a calf 1s handled
roughly and becomes rough and vicious
thereby, when it becomes a cow you
may expect the spme, but if handled
carefully and treated with kindness,
when grown up she will be mild and
gentle. It may not always be so, but
in general it is. There have always
been many cows spoiled by the person
having the care of and milking them,by
whipping or frightening them when
ever they come in his way, or If when
milking a cow hoists her foot or kicks
(which is generally caused by pain,)
such a fellow stops milking and eom
mences whipping, or worse, kicking
the cow, and she becomes enraged,
holds up her nillk, kicks back, and Is
finally ruined. Never whip a cow for
kicking, if she does kick the milk pail
out of your hand and sometimes upset
a. (I knock you, but be kind and gentle
with her, and milk her out with as lit
tle excitement as possible, and if she
gets over her kicking propensity it, will
be by mild and not harsh treatment.
Never whip a cow because she kicks,
for it will do no good, but will do a
great (teal of harm.
VEoETABLE Polsoxs.-For some rea
sons or other a large portion of man
kind have come to the conclusion that
vegetable extracts, compounds pills
and powders can be taken with impu
mity into the human stomach, and
hence quacks have taken advantage of
this general ignorance on so important
a subject, and advertise their waies,as
harmless because of vegetable origin.
I have never been able to explain why
it is that medical professors of our col
leges who know these assertions to be
false, have not over and again written
articles for the press to properly In
form the masses upon this exceedingly
important subject. The truth Is right
the opposite from the usual supposi
tion. Stry chnine one of the deariest
poisons known to man, is an extract
Iroum seeds called nux vomica. One
grain of strychalne which is only the
1-480 part of an ounce will produce
death. Fromi the leaves 01f the peach
can be distilled Hlydrocyanice or Prus
sie acid, also a very deadly poison.
Opium, Stranmonium, Atroph a, Biella
rina, ivy and a host of other poisons
are nll vegetable products.
CUBAN TOnACCO.-T'here are many
who believe that the island of Cuba
produces the linest tobacco for cigars
in the world. T'his is true in a meas
ure, yet it produces some of the most
inferior stock that ean be found any

Uses of Turpentine.-it ls valuable in
hemorrhage haem the nose, lungs, blad
der, uterus, kidney, stomach, ski n and
bowvels; it is an anthelmlntlo diuretic,
ilaphorecLe stimulant, rubefacient,
couniiter-irritant, and sedative; but,
unfortunately it is extremnely unpala
table, unless combined with creosote,
rosemary, or oil of almonds; it may in
duce nausea, perhaps cause cerebral ir
ritation when given in excess, or eveni
strangury. Fatal cases are rare. Lu
,eifer matchmakers, by wearing little
smneihng bottles of turpentine around
their necks imagine immunity from
phosphorus poisoning. Cholera, it is
said, avoids the pine foreste of Norway
and Sweden; while S9cotchi firs are an
tagonistie to diphtheria, and in other
parts of the world to whooping~ cough,
hay fever and phthi-is. In North Ca
rolina, when quinine ran short, the
local application of turpentine relieved
the paroxysm of agute. it has proved
of the greatest service in seome fover
cases; three drachm doses in whisky

an effeesual remedy in tape-worm, and
very serviceable In puerperal fever, in

POTAToXs Ix SvmyN WArs.-Let us
give you a few little hints in regard to
Sthe different methods of cooking pota

dinner. First Sunday, nashed pots
toes;' peel, steam place in a pan aid"
mash add milk, butter and salt,- and
then.beat like cke-batter, the longer
the better, till they are nice and light.
'hiis steaming and beating will be found
a great improvement. Monday, baked
potatoes in theirjackets. By the way,
if any are left over they may be warp.
ed over by not peeling them till 43146
and then slicing. Tuesday, peel an
bake them with roast beef. Wednes.,
day, prepare them in the KeqtucKy;
style, as tollows: The potatoes are
sliced thin, as for frying, and allowed
to remain in cold water half an hour.
The slices are put into a pudding dish.
They are then put into an oven and
baked for an hour. When taken out,
a lump of butter the size of a hen's egg
is cut into small bits and scattered over
the top. Thdse who have never eaten
potatoes cooked thus do not know all
the capabitities of that esrilent tuber.
The sllcing allows the interior of each
potato to be examined, hence its value
where potatoes are d'ubtfu, though
poor ones are not of necessity required.
The soaking in cold wa er hardens the
slices,so tinat they will hold their shape.
The milk serves to cook them through,
anti to made a nice brown on the top;
the quantity can only be learned by
experience; if just a little is left as
rich gravy, moistea all the Alices, then
it is right. In a year of small potatoes,
this mettiod of serving them will be
very welcome to many a housekeeper.
Thursday, peel, steam and serve whole.
Friday, *potatoes a la janeake,;"peel
cut in tlhin slices lengtnwise, sprinkle
with pepper and salt,and fry in butter
or beef drippings, turning like gridd e
cakes. Basurtay, potatoes boiled In
their jackets. These are simple ways,
but give variety. On Monday and
Tuesday aIwa) s prepare them in some
way in the oven, so as to leave the top
of the stove free.
V aRy frequently plants purchased at

HIOUSBKEEPMRs can save their hands
so they need not wiah they could leave

Have plenty of soft thick holders near
the stove to take hold of the handles of
kettles or pans. Keep a pair of gloves
near your sun-bonet to bring in the
wood, work in the garden, or to put on
when you sweep, that your hands may
not become callous. If they are liable
to chap, use plenty of glycerine, or
wash thetm in vinegar, and when you
sit down to .your sewing, and your
hands feel like a nutmeg grater, rib
them with champhor, and it will make
them feel soft anu pliable.

In a paper on insecticides for the pro

speaks highly of the ordinary fluid ex

in the phornacopeta. The extract from
a pound kills alLyoung worms when
diluted in 120 gallorqs of n ater. One
of the most important discoveries Is
that it acts equally well or even better
when the powder is simply mixed with
water, and even one pound to 150 gal
Ions of water is effective, and one
pound to 200 gallons will cause the de.
struction of most young worms. The
vegetable from which the powder is
obtained can be cultivated by the plan
ter hImself, and Prof. Riley has taken
steps to have it introduced in the cot
ton belt. If his observations have been.
accurate, he Is fully justified in saying
that the harmlessness of the powder

After remarking on the use of the pen
dulum in determining the figure of the
earth from series of measurements of
the intensity and direction of the gra
vitation force at different parts or the
earth's surface, he draws atent-on to
the very curious fact that while the di
rection and intensity of gravity are ef
fected perceptibly by the presence of
hills such as Schichallion and Arthtir's
seat (in Scotland), or even by such
masses as small as the Great Pyramid
of Glzeh, gigantic mountains, on the
othrer hand, such as the Himalayte,
and great elevated plateaus and table
lands, do not a frect~the pend ulum vibra
tions in any seinsibie manner, except in
eertain cases where upon elevated cont
tinents there appears to be a verlta',le
defect of attraction instead of the ex
cess which mightt have been expected.
Indeed, the observations are sufficient
ly striking to seem to point to the sup
position that under the whole of every
large continent there were enormous
cavities. More than this, the attraction
at the surface of all the great oceans
appears too great to agree with the dis5
tribution presumed by Ciarlaut's for
mula, which is exact enough for the
purposes. Sir G. Airy's suggestion
that the base of' the hilmalayas range
reaches down into the denser liquid in
terior and there displaces a certain
amount of that liquid, so that, the ex
terior attraction is thereby lessened, ia
on. which, inherently improbable,
fails to have any application in ex
plaining why the attractions above the
seas should be ,roater than over the
continents. M. Fay propounds the
following solution to the dIfficulty :
Undler the Ocean the globe cools more
rajidly and to agreater depth than be
neath rthe surface of tne-continent. A t
a leptht oft 4,000 metres (13,000 feet) ti~e
ocean -will still have a temperature not
remote from 0 degree 0. (32 degrees
Fah.), while at asimilar deith beneath
the earth's crust the temperature would
be not far from 150 degrees CI. (allow
ing 108 feet in depth down for an in
crease of our degree in the internal t m
peraiture.) If the earth had but one
uniform rate of cooling all over it, it
would be reasonable to assume that the
solid crust would have the same thick
ness and the same average density
all over it. it ja therefore argued that
belo.w the primitive oceans thre earth's
crust assumed a'definite solid thickneIsO
before the continents, and that'in cos -
tracting,-these thicker portions cxce -
cieed a pressure upon the fluid nucleus
tending to elevate still further the con
tinents. This hypothesis, M. Faye
thinka, will, moreover, explain the un
equal distribution of land and sea
around thse two poles, t~he genert.I rise
and. fail of continents being determin ed
by the excess of the denisity of; crust
beloW the'oceans, and by the lines or
points of least i.esista~nce to :internael
pressure being at the middle of con ii
nents or at the margin of oceans.
