This association, formed for the purpose of carrying gospel work among the laborers in the pineries of northern Michigan, with headquarters at E iat Sagtuaw, has issued an appeal to all Christian churches for help in carrying on this Important work. There are 40 000 woodsmen in the pineries of Michigan alonw. Every other class the soldiers, sailors, miners, convicts, paupers, infidels, and insane have the Gospel Effective missions are sup ported among the Jews, the Mormons, the Indians, and the Chinese, but not among the woodsmen. In bhort, no class of men in Eurcpe or America is neglected except the woodsmentandtue injuiious effects of this neglect are patent to the most casual observer. The held is peculiar, requiring special agents, methods, and means, and the field is also large. The executive com mittee states that if 100 trained mis sionaries were available for Michigan aloui?, the circuit of eash missionary vtould embrace from 10 to 20 camps. NAVIN'S WHEREABOUTS, lie is Said to be m Mexico. A letter from Adrian dated Nov. 10, gives the following information about the erring ex-mayor of that city: The fact that no responses were received here yesterday to the telegrams of in quiry sent to El Paso, in regard to the reported capture of T. J. Navin, en gendered the idea in the public miud that the matter was, perhaps, a practi cal joke. Later developments, how ever, indicate that there is something in it, and that the fugitive may yet be returned to the scene of his ambitious exploit?, and expiate lu the service of the state some of the many misdeeds of which he has been guilty. Sheriff Bid well has as yet heard nothing from his fellow c illcer, but last evening the Times of this city received the follow ing from the editor of the El Paso Her ald, who had been telegraphed to inter view the sheriff and his prisoner and send particulars. El Paso, Tkxas, November 9. Sheriff Mauulog says be lid not arrested Nivio, but that be kuowe the whereabouts of the pirty. Navin la lu Mexico, aud M tuning wants extra UUiuU papers twut him irnmo'i3i,ly. UER.Ll) PUBLISHING CO. Proceedings had been commenced to secure a requisition from Gov. Jerome, buc this news introduced a new compli cation. To secure extradition papers will necessitate some delay, and the prosecuting eflicer here is understood to hold that the party cannot be extra dited. It is patent that there is an un dercurrent here opposed to Navin's be ing brought back mid puuished, but the best elements of the community will in dorse the efforts of the otlicer? to bring him to justice. The award of $1,000 offered by the city expired by limitation last Sunday. That of $2,000 offered by the sheriff and prosecuting attorney was cancelled by retolution of the board of supervisors at the Octobfr session. The former there is no doul t the council would renew should the runaway be returned. Of the lattei there is open doubt expressed as to the legality of the action taken rescinding u. " Old Stationery. Many were the expedients resorted to by the early scribes for tbe.suppl) of writing ma teriaU. There wtis no scribbling pa per w hereon to jot down invial mem orauda or uccountf, but the heaps cf broken pots and crockery of all sorts, which are so abundant in all Eastern towns, prove the first suggestion for such china tablets and slatts as we now use, and bits of smooth stone or tiles were constantly used for this purpose, and remain to this day. Frag ments of ancient tiles thus scribbled on have been found in many places. The island of Elephantine, on the iN ue, is said to nave furnished more than 100 specimens of the.-e memoran da, which ure now iu various muse ums. One of these is a soldier's leave of absence, scribbled on a fragment of an old vase. Still quainter were the writing materials of the ancient Arabs, who before the time of Mohammed used to carve their annels on the shoulder-blades of sheep; these "sheep bone chronicles" were strung together, and thus preserved. After a while sheep's bones were replaced by sheep's skin, and the manufacture of parch ment was brought to such perfection as to place it among the refinements of art. We hear of vellums that were tinted yellow, others white; others were dyed o! a rich purple, and the writing thereon was in golden ink, with golden borders and many-colored decorations. These precious manu scripts were anointed with the oil of cedar to preserve them from moths. SU11 more precious was the silky pa per of the Persians, powdered with gold and silver dust, whereon were painted rare illuminations, while the book waa pertumed with attar of roses or essence of sandalwood. Of the de mand far writing materials one may form some faint notion from the vast manuscript libraries of which records have been preserved, as having been collected by the caliphs both of the east and west, the former in Bagdad, the latter in Andalusia, where there were 80 threat public libraries, besides that vast one at Cordova. We also hear of private libraries, such as that of a physician who declined an invita tion from the sultan of Bokhara be cause the carriage of his books would have required 400 camels. Olive CuLTUUE.-Ellwood Cooper, of Santa Barbara, the leading olive grower of California, says he has trees eight years old that have produced two thousand gallons of olives to the acre. This would be equivalent to 250 gallons of oil to the acre, and oil finds a ready market at $5 a gallon. The yield ot one acre would thus be 81,250, which for a hundred acre ranch would be a pretty fair income. But these figures are not represented to ap ply to any except the very choicest trees and an uncommonly good year. But even computing the p routs of olive culture at as lovl a figure as one tenth, h twenty-acre ranch would sup port a family very comfortably after six or even years of waiting. One of the great advantages of olive culture is the fact that irrigation in not need ed. In a climate where there is a scarcity of rain, as in California, this is a matter cf much importance. The olive tree also grows very old. There are trees in Asia Minor that are known to be over 1,200 years old, and are still in full bearing Ventura Signal. It is proposed to chauge the name of Paolia statlun on the Pennsylvania railroad to 'Dffryn Mawr." We shouyld lyke to heawr a conductwr cawll oufc the new r nameflrynttynce. NEWS OF THE WEEK.

H ic .ory Cost Km Mure htaut A Raro Bit of Lace, A piece of lace belonging to Mrs. Cooke, of Georgetown, is said by con noisseurs to be actually worth its weight in diamonds. It is like a api- dtr'a til id, and is wovfn in a "lost" pat ten, lhe loss of patterns was a severe check to lace-making in France and Brussels and came about in a curious way. Before the French revolution whole villages supported themselves by lace-making;, and patterns were hand ed down from one generation to anoth er. They were valuabla heirloom?, for the moat celebrated weavers had as many orders as they-could fill in a life time, for it was tedious work. But they were bound by an oath, taken on the four gospel?, to work only for cer tain dealers. When the reign of ter ror began all business of theuort was i nter rupled for a time, for the "aristo crats" iiiled the tumbrils and crowded the guillotine, and the revolutionists were tw busy driving tl eui theie to think of "purple and hue linen." When the storm subsided the dealers and workers were far apart; some dead, some lost, some escaped to other lands, and such of the women as remained were bound by their catli lo work for but one. And this oath, in spite of Robespierre' t djctiine.-was held by the poorest of thtin to be binding, and there are instances where they suffered actual want rather than forfeit their word. Some, however, taught their children aud grandchildren, and many pattern were in this way preserved; but some of the daintiest and finest were never recovered, aud to make a bug story short Mrs. Cooke's lace is woven in one of these last natuid. Washington Capital. California Raisin Business. The cultivation .f grxpes for the production of raisins is a valuable in dustry in California, and the time is mo ta: distant when it bids fair to re..ch immense prop rtions. But little has been done in Napa valley in the way of raisin manufacture, although experiments on a small scale give tvery encouragement for its prosecu tion as an industry cf considerable magnitude. There is a good market at lemunerative prices fur alf that can he made, and it is an encouraging lact for pioluceis that notwithstanding the huge production in the state last year, the s.ock run short this season long before a box of the new crop was available. A demand exists for rais ins iu France for the manufacture of wine, for which they are said to give nearly as good resultj as the undried fruit, and this fact is creating an un ex pected market. Malaga makes about 2,500,oou boxes annually, but there is abundant room in California for the culture of rajsins to expand without comiug in coutlict with the foreign crop. Twenty pound boxes of raisins bring at wholesale about 10 to 11 cents per pound. The crop of ast year, raised in Yolo, Fresno, and in Los Angeles counties, including some small productions in Butte Yuba, and seme of the foothill counties, is flgurtd up at 140,000 boxes, which does not include tho stock consumed in the vicinity of the point of production. The crop of the current year is figured at 60,000 boxes at the Riverside and Oiange colonies and in Fresno couny; while Briggs Bros., of Winteru, and G. G. Bnggs, of Yolo, expect to put up 70,- ooo boxes, it. u. li o were, of Yolo, will put up 1.700; John Bidwell, of Chica, 1,200; C. B. Westall.of Rocklin, 6,000 boxes, and ten tons of dried arapes; Chandler, of Sutter county, 4, 000, and West, of Stockton, 300 boxes. An approximation of the crop for this year gives 139,200 boxes, although it is believed that had early rains not set in the total would have reached 200, 000 boxer", worth from $400,000 to $500, 000. The shipment East last year wa 70,000 boxe?. . From these facts it is evident that raisin production is be coming a settled industry in California. Swiss Newspapers. Switzerland, unlike other countries, has no leading journal, because no one town enjoys any great predominance of influence or population. The federal capital press has not the conspicuous place corresponding to the newspapers in other capitals. The press is local, and no paper has a large ciiculation.as foreigners would estimate it. The Swiss papers often copy items about their home affairs from the London jiurnals, as they have little money to spend on gatheriug news. There are 307 political papers and official gazettes in Switzerland, published in 158 cities, towns and villages. Of these eighty, six are weeklies, 114 semi.weeklles, forty-seven tri-weeklies, forty-six are printed every day but Sunday, and four each day. Only one publishes a morn- ingand evening edition. The total circulation is GG5.000, about one for each voter. German is the principal language of the confederation, and 222 papers, having a circulation of 065,000, are printed in language of the primi tive cantons; Bev.mtj.one. havinar a cir. dilation of 123000, are printed In French; seven, with a circulation of 9. 000, in Italian; two in Romansch, and one in English. The number of non- political periodicals published in this country is 2.13 (1C1 in German, severi ty-eight in French, i-even in Italian and two in Romansch). with a combined circulation of G50.000.
