44 Just Like a Comet!"
A little maid, so wondrous wise
In gpeech, and with observing eye.
Waa'wakened at the early morn.
And to an eastern window borne.
That she niitflit see the comet bright.
And nevermore forget the sight.
The shining star was pointed out,
Its head with splendor rayed about.
And then, outspreading like a dress,
Its train of dazzling loveliness.
And all the points that made it far
Mora beautiful than any star.
The little maiden gazed and gazed.
At such a wonder much amazed ;
And never had she seen before
The morning sky so spangled o'er.
Or fancied that the silver moon
Stayed out so late or rose bo soon.
The stars kept winking overhead
As if they longed to be in bed,
And two bright orbs in mamma's lap
Were closed to finish out their'nap,
While till the comet swept the skies.
The marvel of admiring eyes.
Next day within the nursery
The little maiden chanced to be,
Whan baby was on dress parade.
Its prettyjnnery well displayed.
As high in'nurse's arms 'twas held
With all its frowns and fears dispelled.
Its flazen head with aureole bright.
Its lengthy train of dazzling white.
Were noted by the maid so wine,
Who stood with widely opened eyes
And said, " It looks " her speech was slow
" Just like a comet I" And 'twas so.
-Jotephine Pollard, in Harper's Young People.
Arteums Ward in a Boarding School
The following morning was as rare and sunnv
as was Artemus himself. He could not resist an
invitation to vinit the Young Ladies' Iligh School.
v hue walking to the academy a street runaway
occurred. A terrified horse went tearing over
the pavement with what Artemus ealled"the
fore-quarters" of a wagon clattering at its heels.
This incident Artemus ingeniously utilized in
his address. " The vehicular elopement which
has just taken place, young ladies, has furnished
us with a timely topic ol discourse. Young
ladies' seminaries are ever exposed to runaways.
Once, when travelling with my show, I came
upon a female institute. There were ladders and
lads, too, as to that, at every window. Many
perpendiculars carrying fainting horizontals to
the ground. ' Fire !' I shouted. ' None of that,
replied a solemn voice from the orchard. 'There
uin't no fire ; these are only young fellows run
ning off with their sweethearts. There is moral
entertainment for man and beast in this runaway.
No horse, if attached to a wagon, that is, if sin
cerely attached to it, will run away with it, but
the more a young man is attached to a young wo
man the more he will run away with her, leaving
no traces, in fact, none of the harness, behind.
Young ladies, since I have stood before your
beautiful faces I have lost something, and if you
or the boy that sweeps out should find a red ob
ject, looking like a coral breastpin that has been
stepped on, you may know it is my poor, busted
heart." Oscar F. Hewitt, in Providence Press.
A certain little three-year-old likes very much
to go to church, and especially enjeya the sing
ing, une aay tne cnoir sang "kock oi ages,
cleft for me," and after she got home, the little
one was heard singing very seriously, "Rock tbe
babies, kept for me." .

Bisqce Cream. Une quart of sweet
t cream, two dozen macaroons, one cup of
sugar, one gill of sherry wme. Crumble or
roll the macaroous, put into the cream, mix
into the sugar and wine, beat well torether.
then freeze.
Spice Cake. Take the yolk of four eggi
well beaten, two teaspoonfuls of baking
powder sifted with two end a half cups of
flour, one of sugar, one-halt cap of syrup,
one-half cup of milk, one-half cap of butter.
two teaspoonfuls of powdered cloves, one of
cinnamon, one of allspice. Kab the spices
well into the flour, add the syrup after the
sugar and milk are beaten, then add the
egrgrs the milk, and lastly the floor. Bake
half an hour in a hot oven.
Peach Ice Cream. Delicious peach ice
cream is made by ruoomg tarougo a sieve
one dozen whole canned pieces, or what is
equal to that number, and six ounces of
white sugar, and one pint and a half of
sweet cream should then be mixed with the
pulp. . After a thoiough beating freeze it as
you do common ice cream. If you wish to
make the fancy complete and have the
cream a peach color, a few drows of cochi
neal can be used ; or if you object to that.
ihe cream may be colored with the juice of
red raspberry.
J Hf best sandwiches. lo make won
ueriuuy appetizing sanawicnes proceed in
this way: Take equal quantities of the
breast of a cold boiled chicken r nd of cold
boiled tongue. Chop them very fine; so
hue, in fact, that you cannot' distinguish
the separate particles. Add a good large
half-spoonful of celery salt, a pinch of cay
enne pepper, ' and four tablespooafuls of
Mayonnaise dressing. Ibis quantity of
condiments will be enough to season the
breast of one large chicken, and an equal
tongue. When this is perfectly cold. 8pread
some thin slices of bread with batter, and
then with this mixture. Do not prepare
them till you are about ready to serve them.
If you wish to take sandwiches for a lunch
when traveling, be c ireful not to make the
dressing quite so moist as you would if they
are to be .eaten at home. The better way,
if you do not object to the trouble, . is to put
the salad tilling in a. small glass jar, and
spread the sandwiches cs you need them.
South African Thunderstorms.
In Mr. J. A. Froude's ' Leaven from a South
African Journey, printed in the third series of
his Miort studies of Ureal subjects, there are
two passages relating to thunderstorms in that
part of tbe world. Under date of November 4th,
1874, he writes: "On the road to tbe Yaal
River First experience .of camping out. I am
atone in my tent with a glaring sun rising the
temperature inside to 90 degrees. The mules
have strayed, being insufficiently hobbled. I sent
Charley, my black driver, in search of them in
the early morning. He returned with his face as
near white as nature permitted, declaring that
the devil had jumped out of tbe ground a' bis
leet witli lour young ones. I suppose it was an
antbear. .Any way the mules ure lost. He has
gone back to our latt halting place to look for
them. My oilier vomh li;i pturted with a rifle
to shoot buck, which are round us in tens of
thousand, and here am I by the side of a pond
which i" t rumpled by the .tnrclopes into mud soup,
the only stuff in the shape of water which we have
to depend on lor our coffee, and, alar-! for our
win-hint;. To add to the pleaxure ul the situation

To a while man, . they say, there is no danger
while he has a black, at his side, the fatter being
the better conductor. When one is struck another
must be immediately substituted." On the por
tion italicised. It would oe interesting to have
the opinion of Home ciennne wludents. On the
28th,. writing at tbe Diamond Fields, he says ;
Un the evening ot the third day leaving Pot-
echeffstrom we came down to the Vaal River,
intending to cross in a ferry boat an hour before
sunset. The' thunder-clouds unfortunately bad
gathered up that afternoon blacker than 1 had
yet seen them... Between four and five o'clock
the storm began, and between the darkness and
the blinding enects of the lightning, in the inter
vals of the Sashes we could scarcely eee ten ya-ds
from us. iiven in south Alrica l never saw such
a display ol celestial fireworks. The lightning
was rose color, deepening at timo to crimson.
JSacb fiish appeared like a cross, a vertical line
deeming to strike tbe earth, a second line cross
ing it horizontally, lhc air was a blaze of are.
The rain fell in such a deluge that tbe plain in a
few minutes was like a lake.. . Of course we could
not move. Tbe horses stood shivering up to their
f-tl.tcks in water. At one time there was no
interval between the flash and the report, eo that
we were in the very center of the storm. The
sense of utter helplessness preventing me from
from Lcing nervous ; I sat still and looked at it
in mere amazement. In two hours it was over."

Theoictical reformers begin their great work
with others, but the practical reformer begins
with himself.
It is all very well to tell us that " sweet are the
uses of adversity," but we would rather be
spoiled tke other way.

startling manner the Keely motor for it is some
thing " which no man can find out. '
There are some folks in the world who are so
in the habit of looking on the dark side of life
that, as Jerrold says, they can t even see the
bright side of the moon.
The reason why the money for the pedestal of
the Bartholdi statue is not forthcoming is that a
great many men don't want any more light
thrown on the city. So long as they can keep
dark all goes well, but an electric light blazing
on city anairs would be the despair of politics.
By the way, why not assess the government

Mr. Stuart Cumberland is not entirely success
ful iu his expose of Spiritualism. He rather ex
pected to sweep all before him, but the ghosts
and goblins of America are a little too much for
him. Most of the practices which he explodes
are so old that they died a natural death long
ago, and the new tricks of the Spiritualists he
seemed to know nothing about. Dr. Beard has
one or two mind readers or muscle readers who
are as expert as Mr. Cumberland, and there is
something almost ludicrous in his attempt to
palm off certain feats as wonders and surprises
which half his audience knew all about and
could themselves perform at least ten years ago.
It is a little difficult for an Englishman to excel
the native-born Yankee in the art of deception.
and it is very funny that he should travel thou
sands ol miles in order to expose what Ameri
cans themselves exposed some time in the last
generation. Rip Yan Winkle was a good soul,
but the people couldn't help laughing at him.
Have you ever heard the rappings,
Have you listened to the tappings,
To the strange, mysterious clappings
That are going on in town ?
How the deuce it is they do it.
Or what the clew is to it,
No one knows er can see through it,
But it's done, and done up brown.
Large Figures. During the last five years
the Australian and New Zealand colonies have
added to their debts a total of $180,000,000, New
Zealand being the worst offender of this sort, its
debt having risen in that time $55,000,000. But,
if the population were considered. New Zealand
would be outdone by Queensland aud at least
equalled by South Australia. Queensland, with
227,000 souls against the 50, 000 in New Zea
land, augmented her public obligations to the
extent of $81,485,000, while South Australia,
with 293,000 souls, augmented her'sty $36,800,
000. Further points about these debts are that
the aggregate increase equals sixty per cent, on
the total for 1878, and that at the end of last
year the colonies owed in all $480,000,000, ex
clusive of their local and private borrowings
from banks and land companies. At the end of
the' year 1882, the year's borrowings will have
made the total about $500,000,000, or about
$175 per bead.
The following statistics about Freemasonry,
which appear in a French paper may interest
the brethren of the mystic tie who reside in
Honoluln. The figures give an inadequate idea
of the immense amount of good done by the
craft, representing as they do, only the charity
that is made public. In 18S0, when the last
masonic census, if we may so call it, was taken,
there were, spread over the various countries of
the globe, 137,065 lodges, with the enormous ag
gregate annual revenue of four millards of francs.
or about 160,000,000. Of this sum, francs
1,395,693,000 were disbursed for clerical eipen
ses, printing, correspondence, maintenance of
lodges, and so forth. In relief to masons and
their families in distress francs, 1,785,967,000
were expended. To widows and orphans of
members of lodges, francs 597,658,000 have been
given, lo masons in misfortune, who belong
to no lodge, francs 246,921,000 were distributed.
Finally, masonic schools and asylums were dow
ered with francs 428,965,000, or considerably
more than seventeen million pounds sterling,
dnrtng that brief period of twelve months. The
two most important lodges in the world are the
Graud Lodges of England and Xew York. The
first has 101.0CO members, the second 80,000.
A maiden lady ol mature yesr, and presuma
bly great experience, lectured before thirty
women the other nilit in the Franklin Institute,
on "'How to wash a baby. She prefaced her
remarks by informing her audience that owing to
circumstances beyond her control she had not
been able to provide a baby wherewith to illus
trate her lecture, but that if anv one of her
audience would kindly loan her one fur a few
minutes, she would guarantee t return it in
good condition, or give the owner another
equally as good. At first no one seemed to be
very anxious to hand up a baby, but finally one
woman stepped forward with one that she
Ruecd the lecturer couldn't spoil, no matter
how much she washed it. Tbe lecturer began
by Mating that she would first show her audience
how to jiut the baby into water without
drowniog it. Many mothers, she went on
to say, had spoilt their young babies by hold
ing them in the bath with the head down. - This
was all wrong. Instead of taking the child by
its little ' heels-ies peelsies ' and plunging
it into the water like a churn-dasher, so, aud SO,
(illustrating), the way was to Been re a firm hold
on the kkiu at the dock ol the neck which
would generally be found loose enough to afford
a secure grasp and swing the baby to and fro
in the water as one would a dish-rag. If by
chance the baby should chance .to slip out of the
washer's clutch through being slippery with
soap it can can be picked up again by the ears,
thus . Just here, as the lecturer stooped
over to lift up the baby, its mother Rprang on to
the stage and snatched the infant to her arms,
shrieking. - The lecturer then explained that
while Castile soap was the proper thing with
which to clean the skin of the baby with, as, in
case it was not all washed off at one time, it
would not hurt the child, and ''looked better'
than patches of Brown Windsor. (One old lady
here remarked that she had always used a rather
weak solution of lye-water; but she supposed
she was old-fashioned, and would not be listened
to,' and sat down again. ) Another baby having
been borrowed from a woman outside the door
and found to be very dirty when its rags
were stripped off, the lecturer then went on to
exemplily her work, aud soon had the youngster
as red as a boiled lobster. She theu proceeded
to dress the baby, working on the same princi
ple that a cook dons in trussing a fowl ouly be
ing a little more awkward about it and finally
pruuui-eii iu cui.-i ciouieu irom lop to toe 111 a
most elaborate toilette, which, in honor of the
occasion, was composed of ' very fine material.
It was theu handed about for inspection, the
lecturer dwelling upon the superiority of her
method ' over that of the thirty married ladies
present, until it reached its mother, who discov
ered that it was dead! whereupon an indignation
meeting was held by the audience, and they re
solved that they knew more abont washing and
dressing their own babies than the lecturer could
possibly find out in a life-time nnless she mar
ried. . . ;

A Revolutionary League in England.
A revolutionary organization (says the Stand
ard) has, it is asserted, just been started in
England which threatens to become a formidable
affair. It has ou its list of honorary members
the names of Louise Michel, Henri Rochefort,
and Prince Krapotkin. Its leading spirit in this
country is a person who has for some time
past distinguished himself in Radical
papers ana eisewuere oy ms aavaucea views.
In an address to the people of England he
says: ''There are circumstances under which
political assassination is justifiable and
necessary, and when murder is no crime. We
must have anarchy before we have peace and
order ; we must have revolution before we can
have law, we want to do away with all existing
institutions and overthrow all Governments be
cause they are opposed to the wishes and the
welfare of the people. We must and will have
revolution ; then we will have a true Govern
ment based upon the will of the people when
each and all will be equals.' An active cam
paign will be carried on during the winter
months, and violent revolutionary pamphlets
are to be circulated. The new organization is
to be known as the ' National Revolutionary
Protective Union.

' The Times " Leadi.vo Abticle. Extract from
tii London Time : Passing by a crowd of minor
notions, we come upon the exhibit of the Waltham
Watch Company, which, in economical importance,
is perhaps superior to anything else shown. The
rivalry of the watches of this Company has already
been felt by our own makers, and a hesitating at
tempt was made last session, in tho interest of the
Coventry manufacturers, to prevent the watch
cases of the Company receiving the English stamp,
which certifies that they are made of gold. It
would seem that the Waltham Watches may defy
all attempts to exclude them in this indirect way.
Their first claim to public approval was derived
from the extraordinary nicety of their construction.
They were made with such perfect exactitude that
the parts of all watches of the same class could be
interchanged, and, production being thus made
possible on a large scale, cheapness as well as excel
lence was secured. But the Company have gone
on introducing improvements in their art, and tho
compensation balance they have devised seems to
have overcome the standing difficulty of the vary
ing expansibility of the spring and the wheel. It is
said that the delicacy of construction of the me
chanism invented by the Company is such that a
micrometer they exhibit at Paris measures the
wenty-five-thousandth part of an inch, and might
readily be divided under a lens into one-hundred-thousandth
parts. M. McljfEBxr, Agent for this
Kingdom ; also Agent for Gorham Sterling Silver

terms. noli 3m.
