THOSE MEXICAN OUTRAGES. There has been a good deal of talk lately about the way Americans are frequently treated in Mexico, and it is, we suppose, gen erally believed that many Americans have received shabby treatment from the Mexican authorities. But a gentleman who has lived sev eral years in Mexico and is now in Washing ton says that the stories of "indignities heaped upon American citizens" and the im prisonment of peaceful travelers upon tramped up charges are the most absurd fabrications of an organized party of Mexican traducers. He says that along the Mexican border of Texas and Arizona there is a class of men who seem to have no other business than the manufacture of anti-Mexican sentiment within the confines of the United States. These professional revolutionists never allow an opportunity to escape them for creating a belief that the people of Mexico are op posed to Americans on all questions. A thief or a murderer escapes from the United States into the southern republic and car ries on his usual depredations: he is arrested for his crimes by the authorities, and at once the story is circulated that he is an innocent American citizen persecuted be cause of his nationality. The gentleman ylio says this has had busi ness relations with the people" of Mexico for nearly ten years, and declares that he has al ways been treated fairly and honorably by the authorities and the citizens. "Of course," he says, "their laws differ from ours in many respects, and unless the emigrant or business man temporarily residing there takes some pains to pout himself, he is not likely to -transgress. But the American having business in a foreign country generally takes pains to enlighten himself upon the laws of the country in which he in tends to trade. If a New York merchant should gfend a 'drummer' into Virginia and he should endeavor to show his samples with out securing a license, he would in all proba bility be arrested and fined. Would the New York merchant rush into print and de mand the interposition of the Governor of New York to secure the remission of the fine? The same argument applies with equal force to Mexido. The man or woman who desires to avoid a conflict with the authorities will endeavor not to violate the laws, and he or she will find little difficulty in succeeding." This is certainly plausible, and yet some of the stories told about Mexican "outrages" have been definite enough. - This defender of the Mexicans makes another good point when he says that it is always an American who is the victim. According to the published re ports, the Germans, French and Englishmen are never in any of the complications. Yet there are as many persons of these nationali ties in Mexico as there are Americans. It does not seem that there is any good reason for the Americans suffering all the indigni ties. EDITORIAL NOTES. Even the cholera has its compensations. The sparrows left Marseilles when it broke out there. The Republicans of Philadelphia are very earnest in campaign work. They expect to muster twenty thousand men in marching clubs. Thus far in 1884 the price of British wheat stands at a lower average than in any year since 1780. And if the British harvest turns out as well as it promises wheat may be still cheaper. The fire record for July was a very disas trous one. During the month there were one hundred and seventy fires which destroyed property valued at 10,000 and upwards. Al lowing f ot less serious fires or for those not reported, it is estimated that the loss in the month just closed, including the United States and Canada, was about $8,800,000, or 35,000 more than the loss in July,. 1883. About 40 per cent, of the destruction was caused by 13 fires. ' It is hard to get ahead of the "heathen Chinee." From a paper contributed by the veteran scholar Dr. Edkins to a recent num ber of the Chinese Recorder it appears that about B. C. 2200 the Chinese possessed a knowledge of the art of writing, a year of 366 days with an intercalary month, the as trolabe, the zodiac, the cycle of sixty, of twelve musical reeds forming a gamut, which also constituted the basis of a denary metrology for measures of length, weight, and capacity, divination, and - a feudal system. The new Russian factory law imposes the following restrictions on the empleyment of children: Children of the age of from 10 to 13 years are only permitted to work during the day in certain specified industries. Chil dren from 12 to 15 years are to be allowed to do night work in spinning and textile factories, as well as in glass works. Work is formally forbidden to children under 15 years in the following branches of industry, among others, in mills where lamb's wool, felt, hair, feather, and down are worked np: In bleaching works; in washing, bleaching. and dyeing; in cloth mills, near fulling, tas- selling, and shearing machines; in printing and dyeing works; in all unhealthy work in colors; in skin and parchment works, except in some safe employments; in varnishing leather, in grinding bones, in carbonic and turpentine products in potteries and china works for the preparation of material, turn ing, engraving, polishing, and baking (moulding is authorized); in works where lime and alabaster are fired. Silk manufacturing, under protection, has grown wonderfully in this country, the most remarkable increase being from 1870 to 1880, when it was 250 percent. This country stands second now in this branch of indus try, France ranking first, and promises to ufacture of 1880 was $41,033,045, New Jer sey leading with $17,122,230, while New York followed with $10,170,140, Connecticut $5,881,000, Massachusetts $3,764,260, and Pennsylvania $3,491,840. A number of branches of the industry received a special impetus from the centennial exhibition, no tably gros-grain dress silks and handker chiefs, while silk tapestry and similar goods are products of the last six years. With the growth of local manufacture the importation of foreign silks had fluctuated and of late years fallen off, the decline from 1882 to 1883 being $6,314,069, while the decrease will be still greater this year. Meanwhile themportation of raw silk has increased, and this country is now considered the best market in the world. A Buffalo gentleman who has known Cleveland long and intimately thns speaks of one ohase of his character: Another one of his peculiarities ishat no matter how hard people work for him, or to advance bis inter ests, he never feels the slightest gratitude or looks upon himself as under any obligation to them on account of their labor or suffering on his behalf because he feels and believes that they simply have done their duty, and that they feel so, and that if they did less they would be guilty of doing a great wrong to themselves. Every man who helps him, and works for him, and spends money for him, he considers amply repaid for his trouble because he has had the privilege of doing such an act, and such a thing as reward for services rendered he never thinks of bestow ing except where they will tend to further or strengthen his desires and aid in increas ing his "comfort." The disappointment and sufferings of others are of no importance to him except to the extent that they may in jure his own feelings and diminish his en joyment, especially if they are so situated that what is happening to them would tend to lessen their usefulness to him. The most conspicuous object in the vast structure to be used when the electrical exhi bition opens in Philadelphia is the fountain which stands in tbe center of the floor of the main Gothic arch. The brick walls to con tain the water stand about four feet above the floor and enclose a circle twenty feet in diameter. There are about a dozen little brick anartments around this wall to contain illuminating apparatus. A jet of water will be thrown from each. A lens will be placed at the bottom of the pipe, through which a strong electric light will be reflected in the column of water. The pipe will be curved so as to throw the water toward the center, and the light may also be said to flow through the curved pipe, as it is reflected by the water and continues to illuminate the jet until it breaks up and begins to fall. There will be a dozen jets, oach illuminated with a differ ent colored light. These jets will gush forth as a flaming liquid, and will present a beauti ful appearance, particularly at night. Rising high in the center of the fountain will be a stone column, which will be crowned with a basket of flowers and plants. There will also be two rows of flower beds around the foun tain CONTINUED.

Camp Cooking. From the Boston Herald. Mrs. Lincoln, of the Boston cooking school, has arranged a set of rules for cooking for the especial benefit of the campers-out. They are all drawn yfrom reliable sources, and are the result of absolute experience. Some of them will be presented here for the benefit of the campers-out who are just now prepar ing for their frolic, and still more will be giv en a little later. It must be remembered that one has to go back to first principles, and use the most primitive of implements which na ture herself furnishes. If you think a stove is a necessity, you may build a hollow of square stones and cover with a large flat stone. In this you may build your fire. But you can do good work without a stove; how good you have no idea until you try. A fire of sticks, over which is swung the inevitable gypsy kettle, will do wonders for you; in its way it is as good as a range, for by it you can broil, boil and bake all at once, and where is the stove that can do better? The secret of all success in this, as in other mat ters, consists in knowing just how to do the various things. Of course, the first thing is to select the camping ground, and it is well, if possible, to get a locality near a growth of birches. Usually, these trees grow near water and among jines and hemlocks, so in getting the birches one needn't give up the other ad juncts to a perfectly successful camp. The uses to which the birch may be put are man ifold; the saplings make perfectly satisfacto ry toasters; the crotched sticks are capital cooking forks; the bark is the best of fuel, giving a quick, hot fire. You may make your .whole dinner service of it, plates, plat ters, all, and then use it for fuel afterward, while the next meal sees the table laid with a fresh service. It can be fashioned into the daintiest drinking cups, out of which the water tastes more delicious than it does wnen taken from anything else. Of course, it is the aim of every camping- out party to burden themselves as slightly as possible, but there are things that we must not torget. you may be able to get on with out a saucepan, but you must have a kettle te hang over your fire, gypsy fashion, and a tin dish, holding a quart or three pints, and a tin cup. Y ou must, unless you are to be near a village where you can get the things as you go into camp, take some flour, meal, salt, pepper, salt pork, crackers and a small box ot royal baking power. Usually milk, eggs and butter may be obtained from farm houses in the vicinity of the camp, but if milk is not easily obtained, there is the con densed milk, which is a good substitute, be ing, as a rule, decidedly preferable to city milk, and which is always used for coffee by many persons, even when the original is at hand. If butter is not obtainable the best way to carry it to camp with you is to cut the top crust from a loaf of bread, remove all the soft portion from the loaf, pack the cavity thus made very closely with butter, and cover with the crust, wrapping in a clean cloth and tying it to hold the cover in place. To keep the butter cool and hard while in camp, put it in a tin pail, closely covered, and set the pail in the brook or spring, tying it to a sapling on the bank to keep it from floating away or from overturning. Ihe delight of the heart of the camper- out is a hoe-cake, a genuine old-fashioned af fair, such as has been made by the old hunt ers for goodness knows how many years. It is easily made, and that is fortunate, for, after studying the desires and appetites of the denizens of camps, one who understands the situation says there is very likely to be a call for the hoe-cake not less than three times a day. When the pangs of hunger assail the party the united first thought is of the hoe-cake, and there is an instant clamor for its production. Here are the directions for the genuine article: Pour boiling water over one cup of Indian meal until the meal is well scalded and the bat ter thin enough to spread easily; add one half a teaspoonful of salt; spread the mix ture by tablespoonfuls on a hot frying pan or griddle, which has been well greased by a salt pork rind, and fry until it is brown, but take great care not to get even a smell of scorch upon it, lest your sweet become bitter. When browned upon one side turn and brown the other. But better than a frying pan or griddle, which smack too much of the civilization from which you have run away, is a floured board upon which the batter is spread, the board is then slanted in front of the open fire, and the hoe-cake is cooked in its original fash ion, and has a flavor that is utterly un known in the other methods of cooking. If the board such as you need is not forthcoming, the cake may be baked on a smooth, flat stone which has been previous ly heated and sprinkled with flour. If you particularly like the crisp crust, or you are "so hungry that you can't wait" tor the cake to be cooked through, as soon as they are browned on one side turn them, and with a broad-bladed knife slip off the thin crust. When another crust has formed on the bottom turn and cut of the crust again and serve these thin crusts as you would griddle cakes. They are sweet and crisp beyond telling, and meal cooked this way is far better than when mixed with eggs and other ingredients. Another palatable and easily made bread for camp purposes is short-cake. It takes little time, and skill is not so much a ne cessity, as the veriest amateur will have good success if he only will follow direc tions implicitly. Take one quart of flour, three heaping teaspoonsfnl of baking pow der and half a teaspoonful of salt; mix these well together and then rub in two table spoonsful of lard -or butter; mix with cold water into dough-soft enough to roll easily. Roll half an inch thick and cut into rounds and bake slowly on a griddle or frying pan. You probably may not have a bread board and rolling-pin with you. It would be re markable if you did, but you rise superior to the lack of them and let no such small difficulties stand in your way. Lay a napkin on a chair, smooth a piece of brown paper on a board or a flat box, or, if you are in a boat. on the seat of the boat, and here is your moulding board, ior a roliing-pin you may use a round stick with smooth bark, a tin can, such as the canned fruits come in, or a bottle; the top of the baking powder box makes a capital cake cutter, or you may cut the dough into squares with a well floured knite. Of course you must understand that the board is to be well floured to prevent the dough from sticking; also the top of the oougn, so tnat tne roller will not stick. These cakes can be baked on the hot stone or the board, prepared as for the hoe cake. Eggs in various fashions form a part of the regular bill of fare for campers-out, and af ter you tire of eating them boiled or scram bled you may try roast eggs, preparing them in the following fashion: Prick the shells of the eggs several times at the pointed ends to prevent them bursting. Place them on the larger end in the hot sand or ashes under the fire," and cover them with leaves, hot sand and embers and cook for ten minutes. When opened they will have a velvety softness that is quite unknown to those who have never eaten eggs prepared in this fashion. The easy way to cook chickens and quail you will find a way not at all to be despised. In Idaho the hunters and prospectors speak of smothered quail as being very delicious, and they prepared it in the following man ner: Before dressing them cover them all over with hot ashes. Let them remain in the ashes fifteen minutes, then remove them and you can strip off leathers and skin together. Split them open and the entrails will drop out, and your bird, thoroughly cooked, will be ready to eat after seasoning with salt, pep per and butter. It requires a little more care to prepare the chickens for baking in ashes. Remove the entrails and the crop, but noj; the feathers. Wet these to make them lie smoothly, and cover them with a paste of nour and water. Make a hre in a hollow of sand. When this is well burned out put the chickens upon the embers and cover with hot ashes. Bake one hour. Strip off the dough and with it will come the feath ers and skin. Serve with salt, pepper and batter and you have a dish fit for a king, or for the joUiest set of campers-out in re publican America. If your party resolves itself into a hunting expedition, and you are fortunate enough to secure a sufficient number of small birds for a meal, you might cook them in the following fashion: Clean them well and remove the heads, tips of wings and legs to make them as small as possible. Cut large, raw potatoes in half, lengthwise, using either Irish or sweet potatoes, as is the most convenient. Scoop out a hollow in each halved potato to fit the bird; rub each bird with soft butter, and sprinkle slightly with salt and pepper. Place a bird in each potato, fit the halves together and tie them. Wrap them in well-buttered papers, and bake in hot ashes for three-quarters of an hour, or longer if the potatoes are very large.

Norton, ot Bristol, Conn., when Athlophoros put him on his feet, ana sent him cheerfully about his business. Let mm tell his own story : "About three weeks ago I was taken with a severe crick in the back. For four days I was unable to turn in bed without help, and when lifted up could not stand on my feet. I was induced to try Athlophobos, after all the usual remedies failed. In 30 minutes after taking- the first dose I oould bear my weight upon my feet. In two days I was able to get about and attend to business. In two other cases which have come to my knowledge its use has been attended with the same results. " A poor man in Philadelphia had to bor row a dollar to buy a bottle ot Athlophoros. On account of his poverty his name shall remain a secret. He had suffered terribly from Rheu matism. He gratefully writes: ' I took my first dose Tuesday afternoon, and on Wednesday, after but seven doses, I had not a sharp or severe ache left. Then I reduced the dose one-half and took the remainder of the bottle. I was able to be steady at work till Sat urday, when I took a severe cold and was un able to use my left hand, I purchased another bottle and by bed time I found relief. The medicine is all you claim for it." Investigate Athlophoros all you please! Find all the fault you choose with it I and yet the fact remains, that it is doing what no other medicine ever could do for Rheu matism and Neuralgia. If you cannot get Athlophoros of your drug gist, we will send it express paid, on receipt of regular price one dollar per bottle. We prefer that you buy It from your druggist, but If he hasn't It, do not be persuaded to try something else, but order at once from us as directed.
