How a Prettjr Jewess Saved Her
There is a very pretty story told how
a lovely Jewess in a Russian town saved
her property and her life during if
c Mit attacks upon the Jews. A
hulking ruffian entered her shop and
bought a loaf of b/ead. After swallowing
a couple of inouthfulls lie threw himself
011 the ground outside the shop door and
began to howl that he was poisoned—the
Jewess had poisoned him. Of course an
infuriated crowed instantly assembled
and it would have fared ill with our
Jewess if she had not dashed out of the
shop, and, snatching the bread out of
the Impostor's baHMMegau to eat in sight
of them all. The crowd stopped, thun
derstruck. A broad grin dawned
every countenance. Owe of them called
out to her: "Alosba lend me your kuout,
will you? ' Then the imposter started to
his feet and scudded off, pursued by a

It necessary to secure the Methodist
church as a meeilng place.
This morning's session was devoted
to the reading and discdssion ol a paper
on Improved Methods if Teaching. It
was divided into two paris, the flrst be
ing read by Superintendent Groves, and
the last by his assistant Mr. Carpenter.
Mr, Groves discussed the subject of
writing and then that of Arithmetic. He
believed ,11 schools shou d be thoroughly
classed In writing; that twenty minutes
eacli session should be devoted to its
study, and that blackboard and slate ex
erclses.would be found Imost profitable
to the scholars. Arithmetic la unsuc
cessfully taught because theory instead
of practice has been loo greatly resorted
to Dy teachers. They should be Imbued
with the uecesrity of practical work, and
thus in time their pupilii might be ena
bled to originate as wtlll as solve pro
blems, for there is something fascinating
and attractive in tiguies, notwithstand
ing the crude manner in which they are
treated In most schools.
Mr. Carpenter's part of the paper rela
ted to tl e beet mechodslof teaching the
young, and said the A, B, C, system
must give way to something with less
drudgery in it. Tell them a story to
day and get them to repJat it to-morrow;
ask them what they si|w on their way
to school; familiarize them with objects,
their names, uses and orthography ; Ieach

Rye is very much aud oats are slightly

FOR INCREASING BUSINESS.
Two Vessel, to be Built In England
and Two In America—The Her via
to be Inspected as a Probable
It is probable that Messrs. James
and George Thomas, the largest ship«
builders in Great Britain, whose yards
are situated at Clyde Bank, above
Glasgow, will soon construct two new
steamships for the Ked Star Line,
modeling them somewhat after the
new Cunard vessel Servia, which is
now on her voyage to this country.-—
In the meantime the Red Star steam
ships which have hitherto come to this
port have been withdrawn to establish
a weekly servies between New Y ork
and Antwerp, a move which has been
demanded by increased travel from
that port, as well as by the Royal Mail
Service of Belgium, which haB been a
la~ge source of revenue to the Steam
ship Company. The Servia is built
wholly of steel, and is one of the larg
est vessels in the transatlantic service.
In most respects her constructors fol
lowed those fearures which are well
known in the later built steamships of
the Cunard line, having a large saloon
located fairly amidships and with
ladies' parlor and smoking-room on
the upper deck. The companion-ways
loading from one deck to another are
more spacious, while the saloon-deck
is eleared almost completely for a pas
senger promenade. The new vessels
of the Red Star Line wiil be construct
ed with particular regard for the con
venience of passengers and the accom
modation of freight will be made for
the first time in the Ked Star steamers

WHAT THE AMERICAN LINE WILL DO.
"Our passenger service has increased
enormously of late months,'' said Mr.
Benner of Peter Wright & Sons, yes

lauding Continental travelers in the
heart of Belgium, whence Berlin,
Brussels, Paris, or even London, are
within easy access. We shall proba_

American Line, and all of which will
be as good as any in the transatlantic
service. There will be a Red Star
steamship sailing from New York

port every two weeks.'*

Vaderland were launched at New Cas

for the new vessels has not, however,
been signed with Thomas Brothers."
"A great deal has beeu said on the
subject,but is there any reason why finer
ocean steamships should be built on the
Clyde than on the Delaware? Have they
better facilities there for getting timber
and iron or for launching?"
"No; at almost any point above Dun

"On a new vessel Messrs. Thomas
wish to carry the main saloon to a heigh

A HEIGHT IMPROVEMENT NOTED
Secretary Blaine*« Frank
Washingnon, Aug. 23—8.30 a. m.—
The morning bulletin scarcely furnished
the basis for the immediate alarm which
seemed to be indicated, or could at least
be implied, from the despatch of Secre
tary Blaine at raidnigbt to Minister
Lowell). Still, there is nothing in the
morning bulletin to negative the fears
contained In Mr. Blaine's despatch.
The bulletin does not say that the situa
tion is not serious, if not critical ; it does
not deny the great weakness and emaci
ation, or the very important fact that
the President has lost some eighty-five
The President, however, slept better,
having ore nap, It is said, two hoars in
length, but he also awoke frequently
and suffered discomfort from the swollen
gland. Id that swelling there has been
no change. It bas not yet yielded to
the treatment designed to scatter it. The
question of suppuration is still in doubt.
The surgeons privately say, however,
that if suppuratiou does not intervene
by Weduesday night, they will regard
it as conclusive that an abcess is
form iu that gland. A very considera
ble quautity of liquid nourishment was
taken and retaiued, and there bas been
return of nausea or vomiting.
The bulletin shows improvement.
There has been a gradual reduction of
the pulse in the morning since Sunday.
The President took some beet tea, the
first be has taken siuce his relapse.
Secretary Blaine's despatch last night is
the subject of general comment, and his
clear and frank announcements are
praised by nearly all. He sliçhtly over
stated the President's injury at ibe time
of its occurrence. The day before he
went to the station, both he and Secre
