Harmon la Human life.
Our surroundings should be brmoni
ous with our life. It is not necessary
' to sound the same notes to produce
harmony. ' The word implies blending,
but it almost forbids repetition. Nat
ure is the great teacher. ' Her mean
and ends are consistentVith each other.
Nature understands too Nwell the art of
harmony to attempt impossibilities. She
la alwava un to the mark, but she does
not overstep herself.. Where the soil
" will not prow, lilies and roses, she con
tents herself .with daisies, but left to ,
herself, she will always cover man's
mistakes with a cat efuliy spun snroua.
It is to learn this lesson more perfectly
that in later life we are drawn away
from mankind to live with Nature. A
fuller growth takes p'ace when we feel
ourselves in unison with all we see. and
. when intercourse with nature restores in
us the balance that human conflict has
, destroyed. Life in -great cities is in
imical to harmony. The clash of interests
is too fierce, and those " who live much
in great centers of human effort cannot
sua ain the senso of harmony, unless
they come away for a time. - The form
, - and manner of modern society increase
' the difficulty.' The multitude of ac
quaintances, and the little time given
to each, make intercourse necessarily
broken and nnharmonious. Conversa-
. tion takes the form of epigram, and
each sentence must be cast into such a
- form as not necessarily to demand a
second for its completion. By degrees,
onr thoughts follow - our words, and
each opinion becomes rounded and
finished off to fit into each question that
may arise. Nothing can be viewed as
a whole we are too near to its de
tails. So near are ve in great oities
that it is almost impossible not to take
each detail for the whole. Then arises
Irritation, ifrom the sense.of the un
fitness of each separate, opinion' ex
pressed to bear - the structure of our
whole line' of' thought. We have
uttered an . epigram, but ;we have not
. stated our judgment as it really is. To
' do that requires time and opportunity,
. which society, neglectful of tho in
dividual in its care for the "whole, can-
- not afford to , any one of its members.
The utterance, unfathered and without
offspring, must stand or fall by itself,
while we may be thankful if wo are not
: through it labeled and placed in a
pigeon-hole to which we are as foreign
as a dove to a hawk's nest. - Then it is

ourselves as a whole. London Spc to
'. ; We have all heard the ; Chin sse
eharged with infanticide. We heifers
. 1 . that crime to be less prevalent with them
v than it is with us. If children sre ever
" exposed, as has been seen on a "wayside
s a. tar near Honam, we believe that bitter
... want and a hope that charity would
'provide for the child better than the
mother could have been the moving
causes. As a general rule, self-interest
- - acts as the strongest bar to this vice.
r, . That the life of the male children should
4.; . i 1 T be 'preserved is most important, as the
' Chinese law will compel the sons to
'. maintain their parents, and in the event
i-of an the sons dying no" one would be

. the father, and mother jon, which, their
happines 4 in another state is supposed
to depend." With the girls preservation
- - 1. is almost as important, and they are a
marketable commodity either as .wives
or as servants. Indeed, it is no very rare
thing to see a basketful of babies sent
down from Canton to Hong Kong for
sale .at prices ranging from $2 to 95.
These are all girls. In denying the ex
. " , .istenoo of infanticide it is necessary to
make one exception. This is among the
- Tan-kia, or boat population. These are
a race of people of different descent and
h - religion from the Chinese, governed by
- their own magistrates, and so . looked
down upon by the other classes that no

on the singularity that she might wear

in the presence of man, Coke replied:
For the : reason that men, with weak

which are known to God: and, there

man life is in peril, and one is charged
with takjpg life from another, the Court

taken off, but she was allowed for
modesty's sake to cover her hair with a

Chief Justice Glvnn did not find the
Quakers so amenable to the order of the
court, when at Launceston Assizes, in
1656, they made their first public pro
test against uncovering the head. Upon
Fox and his companions in misfortune
being brought into court, the judge bade
them put off their hats Instead of obey
ing. Fox asked for a scriptural instance
of a magistrate commanding prisoners
to put off their hats. The Chief Justice
inouired in return if hats were men
tioned at all in the Bible? "Yes," an
swered Fox, "in tho third of Daniel,
where thou mayest rend that the three
children were cast into the fiery furnace
by Nebuchadnezzar's command, with
their coats, their hose, and their hats on.
Here was a proof that even a heathen
King allowed men to wear hats in bis
presence." Not condescending to argue
the matter further, Glynn cried, "Take
them away, jailer," and they were taken
away. .; ana thrusts among thieves "a

they done so than the Recorder demand

it was a court, aad supposed it to be
the King's, but he did not think putting
off a hat showed any respeot ; where

marked that he aad his friends had come

. The summer which according to the
calendar has now closed has been marked
by some ' noteworthy meteorological
conditions. . ; The month of June was
alarmingly cool over nearly all districts
lving between the Atlantic coast and
the Rocky Mountains, with frosts in fif
teen of the States from the 1st to the
history of thermometnc measurements.
In 1816, according to several historians,
" there was - frost in New England in
every month of this summer,'1 and also
as far south as Philadelphia in July, al
most destroying some crops, whue in
England, as the Boyal Society's records
show, the same summer was cold
enough to make 1816 a famine year.'
t to be honed that, as no similarlv
cold, summer has since then been known
in any part of the United States, it will
never reur, but it may be rash to say it
is impossible. ;,lf . we except . JN ew n,n
gland, where-great aridity has prevailed
since June, the past summer has been
exceptionally free from protracted and
intense drougbts, ana in tne interior 01
the country, where severe summer
drought is the "climatic rule, precipita
tion has been rather excessive than deh
oient. - ' ' : h- " ' '
One of the most noticeable character
istics of the season just . ended is tne
abssnce of the usual- July and August
hurricanes in the. West India seas, and
consequently there . have been few dis-
turbances on our Atlantic . ana uuu
coasts. The passage of these storms
along our Eastern coasts no doubt great
ly modifies the atmospheric conditions
on the continent, yrawmg rowaru
them the moisture of the air for hun
dreds of miles from their tracks, and
condensing it in immense quantities in
their central areas, tney muM leave tne
middle " latitudes considerably drai ded
of the watery vapor accumulated by the
sun s long continued evaporative lorco
on the' warm ocean. The absence of
these' storms may in part account for
the recent redundant, rainfall and hu
midity in the Gulf States and on the At
lantic seaboard,' and it is probable if we
should shortly , have a visit jj om a pow
erful tropic hurricane, which is very
probable, there would be an early and,
sharp turn of the season. No Ameri
can summer can be complete without it;
but there need be no fear that it will
not come, and the longer it is delayed
the more certain will it be to assail our
Southern and Eastern coasts with unu
sual violence. I .,: ' . s '
Viewing the past summer from the
agriculturist's .standpoint it has been
exceptionally propitious. . Its abnormal
feature has been an exceptionally large
rainfall, which, on the whole, consider
ing that the great defect of Atiencan
summer climate in the chief agricultural
districts i3 aridity, is a good' fault. N.

; A Sew Statue of Washington. ,
The colossal bronze statue of Wash
ington, which is to be placed in Fair
mount Park by the Society of Cincinnati
of Philadelphia, is to have a substruc
ture of granite with two great terraces.
The aides of the lower terrace are'
to be covered with bronze relievos,
in which groups of animal'? and
human figures larger than 1LV are
shown. The animals are to be typical
American beasts, and will be placed in
recumbent positions. In the midst of
the groups will be an Indian warrior and
squaw, a river god and a river goddess.
On the upper terrace the pedestal will
stand. The figures of the horse and
rider which it will support wPl be twice
the ordinary size. Washington will be
represented in uniform, with a military
cloak thrown over the . shoulder.
The right , hand grasps a field
glass, while the left holds the bridle
rein. The sides of the bronze pedestal
will represent allegorical figures of the
troops'departing for war, the return and
the blessiijgs of peace. Professor Ru
dolph Siemering, the German sculptor,
to whom the contract for a statue was
awarded, has completed the miniature
model of the monument, and has begun
work in Berlin upon the full-sized figure,
from which the cast will be made. The
cost when completed will be 140.000.

How Can Ton-Tell a Good Cigar f '
They used to' say that a good cigar
could be known oy the light brown
specks on it. ' These ; were made by
worms,' the story was,' and the worms
ire epicures in tobacco and would
touch only the best. But the chemists
soon found a way of simulating these
worm specks. 'So that spoiled the test.
Then there was.no other guide but the
ashes. ' If these burned white the cigar
was good ; if not, bad. But the enter
prising: tobacconists soon found a way to
make the vilest cabbagenia burn as spot
lessly white as the best Havana.- An
other test gone. Finally the makers of
choice cigars put a little red label around
each.' This was thought to be something
which would always be a "sure guide.
And so it would be,; but unfortunately
some of the manufacturers have, by a
strange mistake,- put the labels on the
eabbageniaa as well as tha Havanas.

Danville Register, September 21st. '
- The Board of Education has adopted
McGuffey's Eeaders, as will be seen from,
their notice in to-day's paper. 'After
experimenting" with- two other . series
they come back to McGuffey's with the
conviction that, in all essentials of a
reader they never have been surpassed
and never will be. - In this they, are sus
tained by the action of Richmond, Pe
tersburg, ' Lynchbhrg, and the largest
cities in the United States. Albemarle
and Rockbridge counties, s Charlottes
ville, Lexington and Staunton, the
great centres of higher education in
Virginia ; . have ' adopted " McGuffey.
Along the Midland and Western Bail
roads, county after county has come
back to McGuffey with a unanimity
that would be incomprehensible did we
not know the book...
From Danville to Alexandria, from
Bristol to Norfolk, ; every county, but
four or five, has acted, and every one
changed the series in use for McGuffey.
Ana thia action is baaed in every in
stance on the recommendation of the
leading professional teachers of each
county without consultation with those
of any other. Indeed, we hnd McGuf
fey on the lists of New York- and Brook
lyn in- the East ; exclusively used "by
cian Francisco in the West ; leading all
others in Missouri and Wisconsin on the
North, and exclusively used in Louis
iana in the South, and St. Loais and
Cincinnati in the centre.' Thus they
are truly National in character, and
unparalleled in success.
Every Virginian feels a pride in the
success of McGuffey's readers. During
life his dir-tinguished scholarship as
sisted to render illustrious our Univer
sity where he labored, and to-day, in
every State of our National Union, the
name of the great Virginia teacher is
lisped by a million children, before
hey hear of our Washington, our Jef
erson, our heroes or our statesmen..
At the request of the 'Indians a
Pine Ridge Agency, Dakota, their agent '

any person of selling, trading or giving
to an Indian or half-breed liquor." This i
