; and be* n treated ia ewry respect as a

1 her encasement.
1 j They had been in excellent humor all
1; the afternoon, and when Honoria had j
completed her story, she looked blush-;
ingly up for their approval, Isabel was j
white as death with suppressed rage,
but the anger of her mother knew no !
' j bounds, and springing to her feet she :
pointed to the open door and cried, in
' a voice thick with passion :
"Do you see that door, you ungrate'

Honor;a stood up, nervously worKing

she knew no one of whom she might ask

i j Cutting ihrough the >'ile.
1 j I have made inquiries and find that
* Baker cut through some eighty miles of
1 j the "sudd" or vegetable barrier; the
y other day my steamer found this barrier
j quite closed up * * * A curious little
1 cabb3ge-like aquatic plant comes float:
ing down, having a little root ready to
1; attach itself to anything; he meets a
| friend and they go together, and soon
5 ! join roots, and so on. When they get
-1 to a lake the curren is less strong, and
5 | so, no longer constrained to move on,
1, they go off to the sides, others do the
* j same, idle and loitering, like eveirthing
r up here. After time winds drive a
3; whole fleet of the- -,gain?t the narrow
3: outlet of the lake u~d stop it up. Then
' no more passenger plants can pass
I j through the outlet, while plenty come
; in at the upper end of the lake ; these
! eventnally till up all the passage which
31 may have been made. Supposing I
3' cut through the vegetation, I may have
31 it closed any day by a wind blowing a
1 j flow of 'these weeds from one side of
5 the lake to the other, so that the only
-1 way would be to clear out the lake of
* { vegetation altogether, or to anchor the
1: banks of "sudd" so as to prevent the
3 j winds blowing them together. Below
> Gondokoro it spreads out into lakes; on
J; the edge of these lakes an aquatic plant,
| with roots extending five feet into the j
* j water, flourishes.
31 The natives bum the top parts when
- I drv: the ashes form mold, and fresh
5 j grasses grow, till it becomes like terra

1 water flows, no communication can take
*! place, for they bridge the river for sev*
I eral miles. Last year the governor |
i went up and with ttiree companies and
11 two steamers he exit large blocks of the
! vegetation away. At last, one night,
* the water burst the remaining part, and
swept down cn the vessels, dragged the
" | steamers down some four miles and
cleared the passage. The governor
; says the scene was terrible. The hipr
! popotami were carried down, screaming
3! and snorting; crocodiles were whirled
; round ana round, and the river was
: covered with dead and djing hippo|
potami, crocodiles and fish which had
*: been crushed by the mass. One hippo3:
potamus was carried against the bow
; of the steamer and killed; one croco;

Seed Sown bv the \Vay?lde.
A Maine farmer has hit upon the following
ingenious plan of supplementing
his corn crop. He saj3: "For two years
past I have strewn a little rutabaga seed
on my heap of old manure before applying
for corn. Then if from any cause &
corn plant is missing I allow a turnip to
grow, almost invariably getting a good
specimen. Last year, having a fev loads
of manure left, they were spread for
sugar beets. The beets did r.ot get a
good stand, while many turuips came
up, which latter were spare3, as they
seemed to come up and grov with un- j
usual vigor. The growth continued till
harvest time, and such rrots I never
saw before, while the bvets upon the 1
same plot were hardly rjiddiing. Some
of the rutabagas, Stirrings, weighed

Canning Vegetables.
Peas and beans may be prepared for j
canning by simply cooking them as von j
would for the table, leaving out the j
seasoning, and filling tiie cans quite up
to top while boiling hot. Have the |
peas and beans rather young and tender, j
Add the seasoning when you open the I
cans to use them. Keep them in a cool, j
dark place, free from dampness. Corn, ;
to can, should be young and tender, j
but full grown. Strip off the outside j
leaves ank silk, but^l?ave on tie inner j
leaves?this will keep the sweetness in. ,
Let it boil fifteen minutes. Take it up, !
cut the kernels through the middle, and i
then off the cob. Pack your cans as
full as you can with the corn, and then j
take a cob that will fit in the jar with-:
out its being broken, and press it into j
the middle of the corn, and screw tne
tops on. Have the cans and the corn as
hot as possible.

The Germantown Telegraph of recentj
! date contains so sensible an article on j
the subject of guano, its uses and value,
[ (and it might have added its abuses also), j
that we give the sum and substance of j
it for the benefit of the farmer: When 1
| guano was iirst used in England as a i
manure it was regarded as the accumu- j
lations from the roosting places of sea- j
| birds which had been deposited there j
for countless aeres. It became immensely i
; popular, and the amount annually im|
ported into England was enormous, j
There was no donbt about its useful- <
; ness. Nothing that had been used for ;
I mannrial purposes ever equaled it, ex-;
! cept, perhaps, the sweepings of hen-1
houses, and with which it was classed, j
Of late, however, a theory has been ad-!
vanced that birds had little to do with
the formation of these gnano beds, that
they are of marine origin, and have :
been thrown up from the bed of the
ocean, and that birds have added but |
little to the original stock. Be this as j
it may, the farmers of England now be-;
lieve that the quality is not as good as
formerly, inasmuch as the same good
results of its application are no longer i
obtained. Consequently the guano!
trade has fallen off considerably in that j
country. It is more than likely, however,
that the quality of the guano is
the same, and that the difference in the j
result of its application is due to the i
land becoming sick of the thing, just as :
it does of raising one kind of crop con- i
tinuously. So far as the guano is con- j
cerned, it is probably about as good as j
itis_a jweU-kcowii fast that
1 not only with guano, but with all ma|
nures of this class (concentrated fertil;
izers), comes a time when theland seems
i to revolt at its use. It is the universal
I testimony of Delaware wheat-erowers
i that Trith the constant use of special
! fertilizers the product of wheat per acre
; declines. The same result has been
! found to follow the continual use of
I fertilizers in the South, although many
of those who continue to use them still
| find them of great service in the pro;
auction of crops.
The Preservation of Ece*.
The question is often asked, "How j
can eggs be preserved for market ?" The j
following will prove of interest to many: j
In the common "liming" process a j
tight barrel is half filled with cold j
water, into which is stirred slaked lime
and salt in the proportion of about one- j
half pound each lor every pail and j
bucket of water. Some dealers use no
salt, and others add a small quantity of I
nitre?one-quarter pound to the halfbarrel
or pickle. Into this the eggs,
which must be perfectly fresh and
sound, are let down with a dish, when
they settle to the bottom, small end j
down. The eggs displace the liquid, so j
that when the barrel is full of eggs it is !
also full of the pickle. Eggs thus j
pickled, if kept in a cool place, will
ordinarily keep good for several months. !
Long storage in this liquid, however,
is apt to make the shells brittle and j
impart a limy taste to their contents. ;
This may be in a great measure avoided 1
by anointing the shell all over with lard
before putting in the pickle. Eggs thus i
nrr> to Vppn TiPrfeet.lv fr-f
.r ?x
six months or more when stored in a
cool cellar.
A much better method of storing eggs
is the following: Having selected per-1
fectly fresh eggs, pnt them, a dozen or
more at a time, into a small willow bas- j
ket, and immerse this for five seconds |
in boiling water containing about five !
pounds of common brown sugar per
gallon of water. Place the eggs imme- ;
diately after on trays to dry. The scald- ;
iag wate? causes the formation of ?thin i
skin of harS albumen next the inner
surface of the shell, the sugar effectually
closing all the pores o? the latter.
The cool eggs are then packed, small
end down, in an intimate mixture of one
measure of good charcoal, finely powdered,
and two measures of dry bran.
Eggs thus stored have been found perfectly
fresh and unaltered after six
A French authority gives the following
: Melt four ounces of clear beeswax
in a porcelain dish over a gentle
a-n/^ cfi* in oierVlt ormf?PK of olive oil.
Let the resulting solution of wax in oil
cool somewhat, then dip the iresh eggs
one by one into it so as to coat every
part of the shell. A momentary dip is
sufficient, all excess of the mixture being
wiped oil T^ith a cotton cloth. The
oil is absorbed in the shell, the wax
hermetically closing ull the pores. It
is claimed that eggs thus treated and
packed away in powdered charcoal in a
cool place have been found after two
years as fresh and palatable as when
mewly laid.
Paraffine, which melts to a thin liquid
at a temperature below the boiling of
water, and has the advantage of being
odorless, tasteless, harmless and cheap,
can be advantageously substituted for
the wax and oil, and used in a similar
Thus coated and put into the lime
pickle, the eggs may be safely stored
for many months in charcoal, under
favorable circumstances, for a year or
Pry sait is frequently recommenaea
as a good preservative packing for stored
eggs, but practical experience has shewn
that salt alone is but little better than
dry bran, especially if stored in a damp
place or exposed to hnmid air.
A mixture of eight measures of bran
with one of powdered quicklime makes
an excellent packing for eggs in transportation.
Water glass?silicate of^g^a?ha^recently
been used in Gercrany for rendering
the shells of eggsncn-porous. A
small quantity of the clear syrupy solution
is smeared over the entire surface
of the shell. On drying, a thin, hard,
rrlocctr film ronrmins serves as an
admirable protection and substitute for
wax, oil, gums, etc. Eggs thus coated
and stored in charcoal powder, or a
mixture of charcoal and bran, would
keep a very long time.
In storing eggs in charcoal the latter
should be fresh and perfectly dry. If
the eggs are not stored when perfectly
fresh they will not keep under any circumstances.
A broken egg stored with
sound ones will sometimes endanger the
whole lot. In packing, the small end
of the egg should be placed downward ;
if in charcoal or other powder, they
must be packed so that the shell of one
egg does not touch that of another, the
interspaces being filled with the powder.
Under all circumstances, stored eggs
should be kept in as cool a place as posrv

Household Hint*.
Thin slices of toast, cut ioto trianglets
make a good garnish for many dishes.
If half a tablespoonful of vinegar is
added to the dark portion of marble
cake it improves it.
Ceilings that have been smoked by a
kerosene lamp should be "washed off
with soda -water. .
To beat the white of eggs quickly put
in a pinch of salt. The cooler the eggs
the quicker they will froth. Salt cools
and also freshens them.
If raw potatoes or the peelings are cut
fine and sprinkled on the carpet before
sweeping they will be foimd more effectual
than salt or eornmeal.
The dishes on which meats, fisb, jellies
and creams are placed shonld be
large enough to leave a margin of an
inch or so between the food and the
lower edge of the border of the dish.
"When making a oerry pie be sure to
wet the edges of the upper and under
crusts and press them so firmly together
that the juice cannot ran out, or you
will leave the best part of the pie on the
bottom of the oven, and then have that
to clean.
In washing dishes use milk instead of
soap. Fill a dish pan full of hot water
and add half a cup of milk. It softens
the hardest water, gives the dishes a
aIoct Ki-iorTif Innk arid rvrpsewes the
hands from the rough skin or chapping
which comes from rising soap. It cleans
the greasiest dishes without leaving the
water covered with scum. An excellent
young housekeeper who has tried the
above says it is a good recipe.
Crackers.?Twelve cups of flour, two
cups of lard, one teaspoonful of salt,
and one-half teaspoonful of soda. Mix
in the lard well; add water enough to
wet up; pound fifteen minutes; roll
out, cut in rounds, and bake.

employed as steward at one of the most
noted hotels at Saratoga Springs, one

one day and praised the tomato
soup very highly. One said she made
it at home freauentlv. but never could
make the crispy toast we served in it.
I told them it was not toast-, but merely
stale bread cut into thin slices and fried
brown in drippings or lard, then salted
and cut into dice-shaped pieces and
served in the soup when dished up.

Fashion and the Beard.
The staid old New York Journal of
Commerce has an editorial on the change
4-/-\ oliorrir*re fT->c.
UI 1.JJL i V*. IVOilUtiug iMW.
Thirty years ago, according to this authority,
a few persons of foreign birth
appeared in the streets "with hair on the
npper lip, and were objects of cariosity
and sometimes of public ridicule. In
1850 some of the young swells of the
metropolis began to wear mustaches,
but for some time no clerk would venture
to imitate them. In one case a
TQcl-Ciial^^-fln Pine street, who had just
engaged a clerk for tWr?S~-E**a?hs, or
during good behavior, dischargedtfe
for wearing a full beard, claiming that
the adoption of the fashion laid the
clerk open to dismissal uncref the good
behavior clause of the contract. About
the same time a number oi' leading
merchants gave notice that they would
employ nobody who wore hair on the
upper lip. As late as 1851 the senior
proprietor of the Journal of Commerce
made his cashier shave off an incipient
mustache, and soon after brought his
own son under the razor. Id the church
of Dr. Bethune, on Brooklyn Heights,
an elder who was suffering from a Tame
wrist allowed his beard to grow rather
than submit to a barber. The habit
beginning in necessity, continued on
account of the increase of comfort
which it afforded, and the elder flaunted
his beard before the congregation constantly.
The result was laughable.
Many of the brethren called upon the
pastor to insist r.pon doing away with
such a scandal as a full bearded elder.
He led them to his library and showed
them how some of the early fathers had
pleaded against cutting off the beard.
He turned to Lactantius, Theodoret, St.
Augustine and St. Cyprian, who had
stoutly contended for tho growth of the
whole beard. He quoted from Clement,
of Alexandria, the assertion that "Nature
adorned men like a lion, with a beard,
as the mark of strength and power."
When one of the visitors asked him
how lie would like it if the clergy assumed
the mustache, Dr. Bethune referred
him to a decision of a fourth
Council of Carthage (A. D. 252, can. 44),
in which it was positively enacted that
a cleric shall cot shave his beard, and
to a statement made by Luther in discussing
this subject, that "all the Protestant
martyrs were burned in their fall
beards." This did not settle the matter,
for subsequently the ladies of the
congregation put in their protest. But
in a few months a venturesome lawyer
let his beard grow after the manner of
the elder and in a little while 6inoothehaven
faces were no longer the role
but toe exception.

Fashion Notes.
The autumn ribbons are verr wide,
j "Watered ribbons arg-^oveTand quite
Rhadzimir silk is largely imported for
fall wear.
The reps of this new silk are rather
i flat in appearance.
Satin Surahs, with a glace surface,
j produce many lovely color transitions.
Plushes and velvets, plain and embossed,
are used for trimmings of satin
i Surah, and for wool stuffs.
Shoes with lattice-work straps all over
tbe instep are worn wj&c~stockings
j matching the costume m^ggBP.
' While bead bassemenfenes are on
the wane as fashionable trimmings,
black jet is more worn than ever.
Black and white is a favorite combination
for fall and it will probably extend
into the winter costumes.
A slashed or open sleeve worn with
mourning dress is this season supposed
to indicate that the wearer is a matron.
It is the custom at the moment to
! decorate wedding cakes with a profu|
sion of white flowers, natural or artii
Fraises composed of from three to
j five rows of pleated lace are frequently
j seen enclosing the throats of the most
! fashionable women.
j Linen tucked satin merveilleux has
! been brought out at a lower figure than
i the all-silk material can be bought, and
j it is said to be very durable and less
; liable to crinkle than the real fabric.
The fashionable width for bonnet
ribbons is to be three or four inches,
neither the very wide nor the very narrow
ribbons of th9 summer having
i proved successful.
j Ribbons with shaded watered stripes
| bordered by contrasting color, with
I shaded plush centers and satin borders,
| and with spots of plush in many colors
j dotted upon a Surah surface, have been
! imported for the autumn.
Very sraaii felt tonnets are shown for
! the fall, but the milliners mean tc
! cover them with plush until their
I smoothness is barely visible. The

is moire of corresponding color. | *
Skirts, though still clinging, appear i j
more voluminous because of the numer- ' ^
?ius draperies added to them in the wav : i
of scarfs, tornurcs, shirred tunics and \ 1
paniers, Trhich are now added to all j j
modern costumes. Paniers are at ],
present generally applied to the edge ' *
of the cuirass bodice, insieid cf being j
set underneath them os formerly.
Autumn millinery shows the summer 1
modes greatly amplified. This enlarge- ]
merit of styles is earned oni; very geuei- j 1
ally. There are some petite fashions in J
headgear, but not to such an esagger- .
ated extent as presented in the opposite
sizes. The poke bonnets have high
tapering crowns. The importations
give felt for autumn wear, and for win- ]
ter there are plush and beaver chapeaux. ]
Capes, or rather deep collars, made
of the material of the dress, lined with '
silk or ilannel, or both, are formed sim
ply of a straight bit of the material :;
shirred in at the neck, about an inch !;
being l?ffc above the shirring to form a i
close frais? around the throat, while the
front below falls half way to the waist.
Lined with far and with a muff to
match, these little pelerines will form
the earliest additions to winter costumes.
IIo"5v the Weather Indications Are De
At the Signal Service Bureau in
"Washington the weather indication are
recorded at 5 a. m., 11 a. m., 4 p. ir., and
11 p. m., dai'v. A reporter undertakes
to tell how the work is done, and this
is what he sees:
Take a seat in the indication room
with me, and we will see how the
weather is gotten np. It is now four
o'clock, Washington time, and telegrams
are now pouring in from all parts of the
United States, Canada, British America,
West Indies, Nova Scotia, and falling
into the lap of the sergeant in charge.
The territory covered is from Olympia,
in Victoria, on the northwest coast of
British America, across to Sydney,
aboT'3 Newfoundland, thence down to
Havana, across to San Diego. California,
and thence back again. There's a girdle
for Puck. At a certain hour of the day
?three o'clock Washington lime?obI
servations are taken at all the stations,
and then they begin to come in, chasing
I each other over the wires pellmell, like j
! a crowd of unruly school boys. These
1 dispatches are called o?T to six gentlemen,

He glances over all; sees where a storm
was at 1 a. m., and notes where it was at
3 .o'clock. He takes into consideration
the wind currents, the humidity, and
all the minor details which his experii

j Not a word is spoken in the room. Old
i Probs is in a deep study. In a moment
j he will speak to fifty millions of the
J people, and a few more over in Canada,

cations are dictated for New England,

' West, Mississippi Valley, then, perhaps,
I a storm bulletin twenty-four hours in

i the country.
Among the inn ovations made by General
Hazen is the furnishing to special
sections of the country special reports
of floods, the condition of rivers and
their probable rise or fall 'within twentyfonr
hours following at given points.
Then again reports are made for the
| Southern States on the weather during
J cotton-picking time, signals being dis!
played from the telegraph stations dei
noting clear or bad weather coming. It
i is in contemplation io furnish the agricultural
sections with indications for
harvest time, so that the farmers will
know when to take it in. The idea was
! to have small cannon at telegraph sta|
tions, and if a storm should be discov!
ered in the night, which promised great
damage, to awaken the farmers so tbey I
miglit save what they could. But it has :
been fonnd that most country telegraph |
offices close at such an early hour that
j this cannot be carried out.
l?ctcliler's Gold.
j A few days ago a rare five-dollar gold
| coin was handed us by I. Breezeale, of
i Calera, for our inspection. Said coin
' was about the size of a silver quarter, a
shade thicker, the color of " old gold,"
| and was inscribed as follows : On one
! side?" Carolina gold. August 1st,
i 183i. 1-iOc. 20 carats." On the other
| side?" C. Beltcher. At Eutherf*. 5
< dollars." T3ie history of this coin as
j we learned it from 3Ir. B., is about
i this: A gentleman by the name of
j Beltcher owned and worked a gold mine
i in North Carolina about the date shown
! on said coin. At this time transporta{
tion facilities were not so good as they
i have become since, and the means of
j communication were much more limj
ited. On this account Betchler found
i some difficulty in getting his gold dust
| to markei and to the mints, ana ne |
! formed the idea of coining it himself I
! Not wishing to infringe upon the Gov!
eminent or to be considered a counj
terfeiter, he ascertained the exact
I amount of gold contained in the dif|
ferent varieties of gold coins coined by
i the Government, made his oxra dies
! and coined his gold dust in his own
name- stamping his own name and the
value upon each as shown above. This
was known throughout North Carolina
as Betchler's gold and passed among
the people of that State and elsewhere,
where the facts were known, as readily
nc + on or/-.Id fnlnq that bora ihe stamr> of
j the government mints. The five-dollar I
coin we saw, and which Mr. B. has in !
his possession, is a beautiful one and is I
! well worthy of a place in the cabinet of j

ing her career.
Calamity Jane is a tall, slim woman
! of about 35, active as a cat, and of
phenomenal endurance. She is a dead
shot, preferring to aim directly under
an Indian's topknot to any other merk
in the mountains. When she was a
i wiry girl of 15 her father was the pro|
prietor of a cattle ranchc on the eastern
! side of the plains. Early one morning
j the Indians broke into his log cabin
i massacreing himself, wife and four ehilf
dren, and taking his eldest daughter,
Jane, with them to the mountains.?
j After years of bondage Jane escaped
I and became a government scout. Like
! most effective scouts, she has light hair,
j blue eyes, quiet manners, and a silent i
I tongue. She dresses in a full buckskin !
| suit, with leggings and moccasins. A '
snort barreled repeating rille is always j
slung over her shoulders. A sharp j
l knife, incased in a leather belt, hangs j
I at her left side. Many a night, alone j
| on her broncho, she has followed on the j
j trail of Indians along the foothills of i
| the Rocky Mountains, stealthily watch- j

Female Weaknesses.
Xo bettor remedy iu the whole materia medica lias
yet been compounded for the relief and cure of
Female Complaints, of the ordinary kind, than
Veoetcne. It seems to act in tlieso cases with unwonted
certainty, and never fails to give a new and
healthful tone to the female organs, to remove relaxed
debility and unhealthy secretions, and restore
a healthful vigor and elasticity. One of the most
common c>f these complaints is Leucorrhcr-a or
Whites. which arc brought on either by the presence
of Scrofula in the system, or by some affection of the
womb, or even by general debility. For all these
complaints, and when danger begins to threaten
woman at the turn of life, Vegetuce can be commended
without qualification. The great prevalence
of these disorders, and their cure by Vegetine, has
amply shown that the sure alleviating agent remains
not yet to be discovered, but is already known, and
is a favorite with American ladies. Too long has it
been the custom to prescribe nauseating and uncertain
remedies in place of what is pleasant, efficacious
and cheap. Try Vegettne, and do not doubt its power
to carry you safely through danger and disease.
