reading novels, haa her thoughts and
niind chock (all of nothitig but
heroes and heroities is uot to be
desired as a wife. Kavel readiag u
very often o greal eurse to young
sirls aud a fruitful source of ruin
and degradai-ion. Novo! readiag
girls do not usually read good novels;
if they did, they would glean some
benelitfrom them, but it is worthless
literature that so inuch abounds just
now and finds the most favor in the
eyes of young ladies. It is need
less to say that this class of novels
is most perniciousin its elTects. The
girl who iaalwajl read ing a cheap
periodical is generally untidy; everv
?pare nioment of her time is taken
up with herfavorite pursuit. Needle
work, domestic work, all are nog
hcted for a penny novel. The
novel readinggirl is not conliued to
any partieular walk in life; she tl to
bo niet with iu nearly every sphere,
but the habit is, of eourse, Baore
destructive to the lower than to the
tipper claasof girls. Young BertaaiBi
who were at one time raloodl mem
bersof their society.after they fall into
the terrible habit of novel readiag
very soon becoine worthhss, lazv
girls, who are not wortli the wages
they renive. Tlie girl who reada
novels to excoss is an aboinination.

of BBBBl works, and there is also
much daaget of wroag Laipri

rendering those givafl tOO freely to

much inaudlin aentiinent alloat now
adaya about the blighted affeetions
of young women that one would
almost iuiagine that girls themselves
were uever guilty of heartlesstu-ss;
but that they are, nearly every one
ia aware. Moreover, we would likc
to say that the wounded hoart that

But it is not with these
young ladies laal we have to deal
under this head, hut with tbOBTj
who cotnc under the heading of
Heartlesa girls. There are plenty of
them about. They may be tuet with
any where, in every walkof life. The

well aa ahroad, the sort of girl who
will waate the whole day doing

to clearlv see that ber mother is beinjr

not trouhle \ery much about that,

can still kaep nB. lf she were to
die, of course that would !>.? a torjJ

the heartlesa girl nould berer j much

Lastly, Ihe Selfiah girl. SeHUh
girls abound everjwhere; tliere is
scarcely a family that doei not boast
of at laBBt one seliish girl. The
sellish girl is of course, a great
nuisance to her sisters; everyone in
the house may be put out of the way
by the sellish girl for she nitiat not
be inconvenienced in the slighteot
degree, she will not take her share
of the household duties; she will
oblige no one, the only person she
has any resptct for is aelf, and self
she considers and studies in everv
way. Tbe sellish girl is generally a
late riaer; even if ihe keejM Otttoil
waiting for their btaakfaat for this
is a matter of trhial OOBBeqaoBCB to
her. She doaj not tateadto Baaviftoa
her own comfort for that of QthoT
people, and that fact she indelihly
impresses upon theminda of the ital
of the family; .so indelihly, indeed,
tliat after a time her parents, sisters,
and brothers voluntarily yield to
her what her seltishness exacts.
Kvery one takes it for granted that
ahe will act seltishly ou all occasious,
and tl B0 used to it tbat at
last they take no notiee of it. But

that she should retain this amiable(?)
'puility after she ia married, what a
delightful compaiiion she would
make through life! How nobly she
would bnat her share of the trials
thatbeaat the matritnonial bark, and
how pnUentlf aho would baat all the
troubles that children bring them.
No; depand npoa it, sellish girla had
better steer clear of matrimony.

I?KI i:i? OYSTER8.
"A few days ago," said a New Or
leans bohemian, *1 dropped in to see
my friend, Lee Yip, who keepa what
he calls a 'glocely atol,' which is 113
near as he can come to grocery store.
He gave me an excellent cigar and
preaently he said: cYou likee dly 03
te!?' 'What in the name of Con
fucius is dly ostel?' I aaked be?
fore I realized that he was talking
about dried oysters. 'Coine! I show,'
i i> plied; aud opening the lid of a
big box he took out a handful of
what looked exactly like oysters
carved la mahogany. They were
not shriveled and warped, like other
drinl footls, but were as plump and
syniinetrieal as any well conditioned
bivalve fresh from the deep shell.
Tho only difference was that they
were dark brown in color and as hard
as bricks. When Lee Yip tossed
them baok into the box they rattled
like a handful of marbles. Of course
I was greatly surprised and before I
left 1 took pains to find out all about
them. The oysters are caught and
preparod at the big native shriniper
ies on the other side of the lake.
The proeoss is a trade secret, but as 1
could gatiier from Lea, they are
Iproad on the tops of large sheds and
OXBOOtd to the sun for several weeks.
What prevents deeomposition, I don't
kiiow; but they come out of the op
eration aa sweet and brown as nut*.
Laot night I tried some by special
invitation in the back of a laundry
run by auother Mougolian friend of
mine. They were bronght in ia a
bowl and formed a aort of stew or
saute, which was really delicioua.
The oysters theuiselvea were firin but
exceedingly teuder, and had a pecu
liar peppery llavor, different from any
Ihiog else I have ever tasted. The
Chinaman who did the oookiog told
me hehad simply boiled the dried oys?
ters in water and added a suiall strip
of pork and 'seasoning.' When I
tried to probe into the seasoning fea
ture he euddenly Loft coinmand of
Knglish, 80 there, I suspect, the ae
cret resides. I am told that the lo
cal colony ConiBBaO many barrels of
these oysters every month aud that
large tjuautities of them are sold in

THE NEW 80R8E OISEASE.
Kdhoi; Citizkn:?As so manv
people have lost their horses and
having Prof. QlaatOB'a Horse 15ook,
which describes the disease, its
treatment aud preventiou, 1 thought
it might be well to give your readers
the beiulit of Prof. Gleasou's re
marks on this disease. The article
ia as follows:
"Tvphosua?A species of fever at
present, perhaps not very clearly de
liued, and consequent upon change3
that have taken place in the blood of
hoiscs, a blood disease resulting in
nervous prostration. It is compara
tively a new disease and is in differ
OBl parts of the eountry, called and
known by various naniee, according
to the chief symptoma there observed.
Iu New York it is known as cerebro
spinal-meuingitis hy those who have
seen the disease, because it is thought
to be like when a man is affectei in
the meninges or niemhranes which
envelop the brain aud spiual marrow
producing choking distemper, putrid
fever, paralysia of the par-vagtim, or
pneumogastric nerve, on account of
the chief symptotnbeing the inability
of the horse to at least voluntarily
The 8ymptoms of this affectioa in
the horse are at lirst or in the carlv
stage very latent or hidden. The
chief of them is in thc grinditig of
the food, as the holding it in the
mouth and refusing to swallow; akso
by placing a bucket of water or other
fluid withiu raaoh of a horse soaffec
ted, when be, will place hia mouth
into and agitate it, going through
the process of deglutition, or swal
lowing, without cousumiuj?.
The inability to swallow continues
for some days, when, from loss of
sustenance and change in the circu
lating fluid, the horse lies or falls
down exhausted. It should be ob
served that while the horses on
Long Island and the Delaware flat
lands conld not voluntarily swallow,
they were enabled to do so when
drenched out of a bottle, with their
heada elevated. This peculiarity,
however, may be asciibed to gravita
tion liaving its own way, and to re
laxation of the paralyzed muscles of
degiutition, which, though offering
no aesistance, interpose no resistnnee.
There are other symptoms that we
uiight meution, but they are alike
common to all discasea of an asthen
ic or low or depressed type. It is a
disease whereiu the via vitae
is extremely low, and it ia cou
se(|ueutly very fatal treatment.
On a disease of this kind, where
nervous force ia aluiost gone,
we suggest the diffu6ible and morc
fixed stiniulants, with carminativ. .-?
and tonica, which are BBlhlBOCll in
the following formula, to be giten,
mixed in a bottle of cold water, live

1'o.vdcred cap?icum 3
I'owderod l'lrnenta berrloa. 4
Tinctureof nux voinlea, 20 drop?
Drench the horse with eeld water
several timea daily, adding sixty
dropsof commercia! sulphurie acid to
assist in sustaining the Hagging pow
ers of life. Cornmeal may also be
given in the same way, and.fora like
By way of experiment galvanism
or electricity may be employed over
a blistered surface made along the
pneumogastric nerve on each side of
Injections under the skin with
8trychniue may result in gaining
time for other measurea to become
effectual as a cure. The cause of
this disease in horses does not diflfer,
we think, materially from those that
uive riae to like diaeasea in men.for on
the shore opposite to Long Island in
1SG7, and at the very time horses
were affected with the disease, over
400 deaths were recorded iu the hu
nian family from an affection simi
lar to paralyaia.
The preventiou of this disease,
like many othera that affect domeatic
animal8, is more easily aecomphshed
than the cure. Use dry stables.
Give good feed in which a dram
or two of 8nlphate of iron, or live
grains of arsenic should be mixed,
and given once daily, when such di
aeaaea are in the vicinage, for eight
to ten days at a time."
Hoping that the information given
by Prof. (Jleason may prove a bene
lit to any one who may havt trouble
with this disease, I am

Thc Chineee miaiafa r in Waahing
ton, Wii Tiag Pang, coatribabai to
the oTarth Amrrnrian B ifiea an
IBtereatiag paper on "Mutual
Ilelpfuhiesd between China and the
LTaited Btetaa." Be begtao by quot
iag from Ooafaoitui Ihe eajiajr that
"Keciprocity might serve as a guid
ing principle through life," and ap
pliei that term to the relationship
which should exist between the I'nied
st ilea oad China. He proceeds to
show that the oapaoUj of the Am r
aooa people to prodnoe is now greater
than their capacity lo consume, and
that they niust have a market for
their surpliu producta. To make a
long story short, he believes that
Obiaa ia tbefieJd which the LTaitedI
States should abotu all other lields
cultivate. To give an idea of the j
vast extent of that eountry, hepoints |
out that China in extent of territory j
and deiisity of population exceeds the
whole of Kurope. "To be more ex
act," he saya, "the provinceof iSzech
men can muster more able-bodied
men than the (lerman Empire. The
province of IShantung can boast of
as many native born sons as Kranee.
