Arthur Tut tie, the noted j traveler, explorer ami ex-King- of the Cannibal Island-, i.- in the city. Capt. Tuttle is now seventy-one years old, and his experiences have, drawing it mildly, been somewhat varied, lie was horn in New York State and worked on his father's farm until he ! was eighteen years old. He became infatuated with the glowing; tales of j s': a life at sea and made up his mind to I til join a ship. He did so, and .since that time, with the exception of two years and six months, he was King of the Cannibal Islands, and since lSSl he has been at a-a. He related his history of how he became the King of the Cannibal Islands in a graphie manner. In bS-S-i the K.ssex, a ship on which Captain Tuttle was, was wrecked. The crew took to the boats, and after drifting about or about seventy-live days the one in which he ami seven others were in was cast upon one of the Can nibal Islands. Immediately the en tire boat's crew were seized by the natives. They were all killed except Captain Tuttle. The reason why he vas not killed with the others va because of his unusual height. A few days afterward the ruling King was j deposed and Captain Tuttle was in augurated in ids stead. The reason for ('aptain Tuttle being saved by his unusual height (he is C, feet inches) was a strange supersti tious belief of the natives. Several years previous one. of the kings died, liofore he died he would return in another torm and color. Up to the time that (.'aptain Tuttle appeared the natives had looked forward to the -econd coming of the dead King. When Captain Tuttle landed he was mea-nred, and he corresponded in very way with the dead Xing. It wa- be'.iev.-d that there could be no miiake in the man, and he was therefore made King. He fought .e"eral battles with tin; islanders, and was victorious in all of them. He built a church and preached to them in their native language. I5y this mean- tin; natives became some what civilized. Two years and a half alterward Captain Tuttle took his departure from the islanders. (."aptain Tuttle said that the island ers wen very fond of human llesh. The reason why they have a liking for this kind of food was because of a belief existing among them. One of their King- was quarrelsome, and frequently had disputes with the other tribes on the inlands. He told the islanders who were his subjects that they must eat those whom they killed and took prisoners. He wanted them to ! this, because if they did so J their opponents would be decreased : rr,. t .,.1 1 ;r II i lllllliui'i?, iji; uciil 01 111.ii ii tin; 1 t dead and the prisoners were eaten j they would not return in another ! ferm to give them further trouble. During many years of his long die at 5ea. Captain Tuttle ha- spent a great deal of hi- time in whaling in the Arctic regions. it i- hi.- intention , to go on an Arctic expedition to list-over the north pole.

'1 have gon iat' a new line of bu-.i-no.-s." -iid a d-Uetiw yesterday to a )f'Hij AV r:port r, an I he pas.-ed ovtr a sheet of paper a-; he spoke, on which was printed, with his name in pietty let ters at the bottom, a letter asking the re ceiver ''if there is any one who at some period of Lis or her life has not bit the need of solu'' agant of discretion and skill to whom he or sh" eouM intrust cer- in investigations mysterious and delicate in tLeir wav." The circular then went on to mention some of the ''mysterious and delicate' investigations, such as fathers who wish to know the acts of their prodi gal sons, families desirous of knowing the habits of any one of their members, and, iu fact, all those who desire to exercise moral supervision and justifiable investi gation. "How does it pay?" asked the reporter. "A great deal better than criminal work, and it is not at all distasteful. The old work of the 'private detective,' shad owing married men and women and put ting up jobs by which divorces could be obtained, is distasteful; and something I have always been oppose d to. Hut this is an entirely different feature. For ex ample, a short time ago I had a case. A wealthy State-street merchant, who is about to retire from the business and was desirous of placing the management of it into his sou's hands, became fearful that the young man was a little wild, and that, therefore, it might be bad policy for him to do so. He especially feared that his son learned to gamble. The case was given to me, and for a month some one from this oliiee shadowed him constantly. Tf j the young man took a carriage ride, his 'shadow' did likewise, and a week ago I reported. The only fault that wo found him to have was that he pi ived billiards occasionally. The father was overjoyed, lie is satisfied now to trust his boy, know ing that he is worthy of it, and, of course, paid me a liberal fee. 44 Another case was that of the daughter of a wealthy merchant. She was a klep tomaniac, and stole everything she could lav- her fingers on. The bills came iu so rapidly that I was employed to keep a strict account, and not let ike persons from whom she stole send iu bills for more than was taken. We soon found many such ; but it was impossible to cure the young lady. She visited a friend ten days ago and robbed her. It was the third time, and the friend threatened to expos her if it occurred again. It was not an uncommon thing for her to steal from her friends at balls and parties, and the father gave up iu despair. lie knew exposure was likely to come at any time, and to have himself the shame and humiliation, sent her to a private asylum. It is un doubtedly a mania with the woman, but I couldn't help thinking that if she were a poor person, like you or me, the asylum that would receive us would be the peni- tentiarv. " Tie n there are cases where parents The column- of the agricultural press are tilled with tierce at tacks upon that ill-fated animal the scrub. He hi- attacked from all .-ides ! and in everv conceivable manner. One would think, to read the free ad vertisements he leceives, that the ''scrub" has no value whatever. He keeps on multiplying with startling rapidity all over the country. He t laughs at the criticism of agricultu- i ral writers. He would, doubtless, ( grow fat under the treatment w -re it ; not directly opposed to all the tra-.ii-' tions of his ancestors to accumulate i f.-itlv substance. He knows that he has a certain value that cannot be taken from him, though it be pricked by all the editors' quills in the land. The scrub is a necessity. He goes with the scrub farmer. You will find him on the same farm with scrub hou.-es, scrub implement-, scrub methods, and scrub children. He forms a part of a scrub system. He is necessary to complete the set and keep it in its "scrub'' state. Let a man put a thoroughbred or grade animal in his herd and before you know it, many of his good old "scrub" methods will be cast aside. You will find better care, better buildings, better plowing, more thought and olanuing. "Scrub" ! stock call only for "scrub'' care and shelter. They discourage rather than encourage brain work. This is just what the "scrub'' farmer admires. One good, square think tires him more than a week's work. "Scrub" cattle keep their surroundings down to a "scrub" level, and that seems to be the only level upon which many farmers can exist. They would soon bring line stock down to their own state. Think how powerless we would be if we had no "scrub" men or farms to point out to our children as examples of bad management or ignorance. The "scrubs" keep us provided with illustrations of this character, so that we are not obliged to show up our own bad qualities. L.et us give the patient animals full credit for all they do.

Now, for a sm.sil family, nothing is nicer or more economical than a stulVed leg of mutton : either have the bone re moved, or make a pocket beneath the upper skin, and stall' with bread crumbs and boiled onion-, and sage bound with an egg. If you like goose, this is a capital imitation. Next day, whon cold, cut it up into thin si ices and make a Lash, with a glass of sherry thrown in at the last moment, ami so for about fifty cents you have meat for two days. There is oftentimes a small quantity ot meat h f t cold, which people general !y throw away.

To remedy this you should always have- wn hand a bottle of coloring, made thus Cut up two large onions and fry very brown, but not burnt at all. The put a spoonful of sugar in the frying-pan and let it also become brown. Salt, pepper, and about two spoonfuls of Worcester shire sauco and two glasses of port wine (which latter you may omit if you like) ; then fill up the pan with water and let it boil. Strain and bottle it, and a spoonful lidded to stews, gravies, etc,, will have a magical effect. It is well to bear in mind that quantity does not always satisfy. Small, wdl dressed, piquant dishes, well colored and very well seasoned, go a great deal toward making a dinner appreciated. Of conrs I write for those who have to manage, and if any woman has tact enough to econo mize iu the kitchen she can generally a?e out of her allowance enough lor a new dress in a short time.
