Xew York World: Mrs. Anna Eliza Young, an aged widow, once quite well to do, and residing all her life at Tuck' alioe, Westchester county, was taken to the County Almshouse yesterday morn ingamldied of fright and abrokonheart in the carriage which landed her at the door. The old lady wept all the way to the almshouse, and prayed that death might overtake her before she became a pauper. When thocarriage stopped at the door she Jooked out of the carriage window, gave a shriek, threw up her hands, and fell dead. Mrs. Young's hubsaiid was oneo a prosperous stone cutter, and they lived in comfort, but about twenty years ago ho was drowned and since that time the widow has maintained herself 011 what remained of his properly.

MAKITAKY VALUE OT HOUSE l'LAKTS. In his book, "House Plants as Sanitary Ageuts,'1 Dr. J. M. Auders opposes the old and well-ea" tablishcd nrftton that growing plants In a Blecp ing-chamber or sick room are injurious to health. He contends that, far from being deleterious, they are of positive value as sanitary and cura tive agents, and recommends them as especially useful in rrii.-jin diseases of the throat and liin^H.

Dr. Salmon, chief of tbe bureau of animal in dustry, made a thorough investigation of the supposed pleuropneumonia in northern Indiana, and has, says the Indluhspolis Journal, pro nounced the disease not pneomonia at all. It is, he claims, the "hush" or "horBC," a parasitic bronchitis. The disease, he says, is not conta gious. and there neod be no furthur alarm among the noik men of the state over its spreading. The disease is caused by tbe irritation In the windpipes, bronchial tubes and lungs by a parasite named sc'entiflcally strongleys. The disease is ver? fatal to stock In many part* of tbe country, and especially in the East, wbcie the affected cattle of this ntate came from, the worms generally attack calves under 1 year old, and especially such as are pastured In low-lying lands near a river, or land that has been subject to overtlow. It is most prevalent in Aupufl and September. The disease in a diftlcult one to treat, and generally has to run its course. HOUSES THAT EAT TOO FAST. If horses do not chew their food beforo swal lowing It, it is seldom more than half digested. Aniong them there are many "perfect hogi»"— ravenous feeders, who swallow a mouthful simply to make room for unothcr, without wait ing to chew it or to moisten it with saliva, which is the real beginln^cf dlsgestion. Tho waiter once had a maro that was such a vora cious ei.ter, that sho frequently nearly ctnked herself, and finally in one of her half-choking paroxysms drew some oats or bran into her lungs, which produced inflammation and death. When dry feed—corn aud oats ground together, brail, etc., is fed, horses having this tendency arc obliged to cat slowly, for it is necessary for them to moisten tho meal thoroughly before It is swallowed, and this involves chewing, so that they caunot cat faster than tbe liow of saliva moistens the food. With oats, or corn, unground, a very little moisture sulUces, and the grain is swallowed whole, aud is not digest ed at all. Wo should bear in mind that it is a provision of nature, or at least a fact of nature that most seeds taken into the stomach of men or quadrupeds, unbroken, arc not affected by the process of digestion, but arc subsequently deposited upon the earth protected and nccom panicd by manure enough to give them a good start when they begin to grow. Another interesting fact is, that horses often prefer to eat hay with dry meal, rather then the meal alone and will take both^hay and meal In their mouths at the same time, when both lie separ ately before them. Why they do this, is not easy to state, but probably they find the pro cess of mastication easier. KILLED DT LIGHTNING IN l/ECEMBEK. Edlna (Mo.)

In selecting a bull to place at the head of a herd it is often the cape that a man will, for the sake of saving small eum in the original in vestment, take an animal that is more or less defective and consider thnt be ha# saved some money by doing so. He docs not stop to con sider how a small sum added to the value of each calf sired during the time he uses a bull will warraut a considerably larger outlay at tho start. There are many eiros thut have, through the quality of their stock, increased tbe value of a herd enough to more than pay for themselves, even when the purchaso price was ono consider ed This point should havo special consldertion whou, as now, prices of stock range lower than ormerly. UOltaES CENSUS. A German paper (Fuhrhalter) gives tho fol lowing as census of horses used in cities of Europe and Great Britain: Berlin, 3i,587 Ham burg, 7,000 Munich, 5,883 Dresden, 5,044 Brcs lau,4,581 Konigsbnrg, 4,477 Hanover, 4,185 Frankfort-on-Main, 3,000 Stuttgart, 2,591 Loip slc, 2,483 Danzic, 2,385 Bremen, 11,199 and Cologne, 1,850. For London tho number is stated at SOJ,000 horses, inclusive of 10,000 used in tramways and a like number in omnibuses. Paris has 04,247, including 12,000 omnibus horses Vienna,l4,3l7 Romo, 11,783 Buda I'ewth, 11,'Ml Copenhagen, C.302 aud Stock holm, 3,509. NEED WATER. The American Cultivator says: "It is surpris ing to anyone who has not noticed the fact before how much more water sows will drink that have to give milk to a lot of suckling pig »:hau is needed by others fattening on the same feed. There is sound philosophy underlying tbe prev alent practice ot giving slops and other thin watery or milky etuff to the sows with pig. They will make good uso even of dish-water though this is apt to be salty and to necessitate plenty of puro water afterwards. Tho milk supply of breeding sows keptin pens during hot weather la very apt to be curtailed by lack of drink. Of course, plenty of good food is also neccssary, or the sow will decline so much In flesh as to be permanently injured. NOTIIIKU LIKE OIL. Oil says tho American Agriculturist, is fatal to every insect which It touches, and sulphur is very offensive to them. A mixture of four onncea of load and one of sulphur well rub bed together, and with the addition of ono ounco of kerosene oil ana one dram of creosote will be found an excollent remedy against all sort* of insectvermin, while the liberal use of kerosene oil on poultry rooata will fice tho fowls from their tormentors* LEARNED, BUT NOT SENSE A doctor who doesen't believe in ordinary fats, say«-, "The suet or fat, from which oleo margarine Is made, cfionot, und«r any clrcum etanccs, be a healthful or nourishing product, for Its formation depends upon an abnormal or die* cased condition of the animal, Tho proceas'of fattening—of developing thin suet—necessitates an unbalanced relation between tho assimilating and depurating organs, consequently wasto matter in tbe form of fat is retained." Tho doctor is clear off. Fat Is fnlly as much a normal product ea leau meat, and neccssary to its full development. WATCH THE V1CIOU8.

Lincoln and Sutmier. A wcll-kiiowncx-nicniber of the Cab inet tells Home in foresting reminiscences of Senator Jiumncr. A few days before Lincoln's second inauguration, Sumner called at the-White House and told him that he was determined to defeat, in the Senate, bis favorite measure re garding Louifuma, because it would in volve a vicious principle, which would bo quoted as a precedent when any large scheme of reconstruction might bo brought lorwanl. Lincoln blandly listened to the Sen ator's remonstrance and replied: "Mr. Sumner, 1 am not. convinced by your arguments, and as to your threats of defeating the bill. 1 can toll you it is impossible, for I know" a clear majority of the Senate, is in its favor." ••Hut I tell you, Air. President,1" answered Sumner, "it shall and will be defeated.'1 "Try it,11 was the quiet response. Sumner did try it. He appeared oil the last night of that session of Con gress with a small law library, partly on his desk and partly pileil upon each side of it. The bill was in troduced, and it was supposed it would be immediately passed. Sumner, how ever, had the floor, and lie, began to speak. After he had spoken an hour or two, it occurred to Senator Wade of Ohio to ask Sumner, as the session of Congress would soon expire, and as there Was much necessary business still remaining to be done, how long the Senator from Massachusetts intended to occupy the attention of the Senate. Sum.'1"1' RCP"ed that his speech must be of uiiiu",al length, and that lie would not pronv'su would close befort' come to a the gress came to 1«£«1 session of Con 1111 end. Waflo, who had hi his charge what was in effect Lincoln's bill, va.s on announ®- ment compelled to ab.',IK'ou Sumner thus managed to havo l'10 whole great subject of reconstruction, postponed to the period when it could be discussed in all its larger relations to tu welfare of both sections of tho country. It is very likely that this incident :.ls Sunnier told it, may be inaccurate Ju some details. If so, the fault is in the memory of the listener, not in his long narrative. But his object in telling it was to illustrate a beautiful quality of Lincoln's character. "I thought," he said, "that tho President would consider my opposition a personal affront. Instead of that you 'may judge of my surprise when he sent me a note on the next day, asking me to accompany Mrs. Lincoln in his car riage to the ceremonies of the inaugu ration, and also to accompany hor to the ball in the eveniug. As to the ball you may imagine the kind of wonder that was excited, when, with Mrs. Lin coln on my anu, I made my way through tho throng of ladies and gentle men present, and placed her in her selected seat. The. thing was nothing in itself, but still I thought it read a lesson to shrewd politicians, when they had to undertake the task of pleasing such a man as President Lincoln. To Much Courtesy. A sharp plucky little terrier, belong ing to a lady, one day found in his mistress's garden a monkey, owned by a traveling organ-grinder, who was playing outside the gates. The dog at once made a furious rush at the in truder. The monkey, dressed in a red jacket and hat, sat perfeotly still, and waited quite calmly tho onslaught of tho onomy. This conduct rather puzzled tho excited terrier, who stopped short a few feet from this queer visitor. Tho two animals then had a good long stare at each other, and, just when the dog was preparing to spring on the monkey, the latter quietly raised his hat, and saluted his enemy with a polite bow. This was to much for the amazed terrier. Ho instantly re treated into the house with his tall be tween his logs, nor could his mistress coax him outside again, until he was quite sure that tho uncanny interloper had disappeared: Joke on tlm letter F.
