Advertising is all very well, and quite necessary perhaps in the dry goods business, but after all there is nothing that moves off the goods so fast as low Prices. In our sales of Cloaks in October we have had a demonstra tion of this such as we never saw before. We happened ( owing to cir cumstances which we have explained in for mer advertisements) to have our prices rath er lower, in fact consid erably lower, than the other Chapel street deal ers, ana we have reaped the aavantage most un mistakably. The pleas ant thing about such a chance as this is that not only we, but our customers also are gain ers. The low prices are still there and there are still plenty of Cloaks, Coats, Sacques ana Mantles for Ladies ana inuaren.

The results of the examination made by Dr. Crichton-Browne for the purpose of verifying or refuting the statement that the pupils in these institutions are subjected to overpres sure in their studies are interesting and im portant. He finds that educational over pressure does exist; that it is exerting appre. ciably evil effect, which, if unchecked, are likely to entail very serious consequences on future generations. Dr. Browne divides the children in the London public schools into three classes; the first, consisting of from 20 to 30 per cent, of the children, are bright and clever, and can easily accomplish all the work required of them in seven or eight months of each year. Another class, of from 40 to 60 per cent., consists of children having average intelligence, who can cover the re quired ground by the steady work of twelve months. The third class, which Is about as large as the first, consists of back ward children, who cannot fairly do the work in the allotted time, and who must therefore be. pressed, and sometimes hard pressed, in order to get as many as possible of them to make a passable appearance. But, unfor tunately, the evil effects of excessive stimula tion are not confined to the backward chil dren. Dr. Browne lays down the rule that mental labor is dangerous to health, and shortens life just in proportion as emotional disturbance is mixed np with it; and he as serts that the periodical examinations which are required to test the work of the schools furnish an emotional disturbance which is resulting in a great increase of nervous di- He found that in some of the schools forty per cent, of the boys and fifty-two per cent, of the girls complained of habitual head aches, and under circumstances which made it evident that the complaints, were not those of idle imagination; 41 per cent, of the boys and 36 per cent, of the girls complained of sleeplessness, a sure indication of nervous debility. Again, more than half of the boys and girls suffered from various forms of nen- ralgia, all these facts going to show that the system to which they were subject ed was one well calculated to im pair physical vitality. In opposition to this Dr. Browne gives the results of certain exam inations he made in Scotch schools, where he found that no such ailments existed, and that nervous excitement and overpressure, as indi cated in the London schools, were not to be found. He remarks that this may be partly attributed to healthier conditions of family life and the difference in the nervous organ ization of the people; but he maintains, with not a little force, that educators must take into account the material with which they have to deal, and must adapt their systems to meet these conditions. All of which is sensible and timely. EDITORIAL NOTES. The battle is over. We congratulate our readers that thev can rest from political la bors. The Panama canal scheme does not appear to be very flourishing. A Washinijton cor respondent of the New York Herald asserts that De Lesseps' company has already spent nearly $100,000,000. Its interest charges are already $6,000,000 a year. The plenary council of Roman Catholio prelates that meets at Baltimore next week will be an impressive gathering. The Vati can reckons a Roman Catholic population in America of 10,000,000, and the council will include all the archbishops, bishops, heads of relicrious houses, abbots, principals of church colleges and chief men of the relig ious orders. The proceedings will be nomi nally secret, but the important parts of them will doubtless leak out. A tunnel, measurini? about five thousand feet long and constructed at least nine cen turies before the Christian era, has just been discovered bv the governor of the island of Samos. Herodotus mentions this tunnel, which served for providing the old seaport with drinking water. It is completely pre served, and contains water-tubes of about twenty-five centimetres in diameter, each one provided with a lateral aperture for cleansing purposes. The tunnel is not quite straight. A special scientific department has been organized in connection with the Bureau for Women's Work of the New Orleans exposi tion. Under this head will be included tronomical drawings, and photographs, bo tanical specimens, mounted, (ferns and flow ers arranged for ornamentation not included) biological and microscopical slides, chemical analyses, entomological collections, classified minerals and marbles. All contributors are requested to forward their 'packages to the commissioners of their State requesting transportation to New Orleans, as soon as . possible. . In a recent number of the Archio. fur Oh renhellkunde Dr. Buskner eives an interest ing result as to the statistics of ear disease. Thev mav be snmmed Tin as follows: One out of every three persons in middle life lines not hear so well with one ear as the other. An examination was made of 5,905 school children, of whom 28 per cent, pre sented symptoms of ear disease, and 23 per cent, a diminution of hearing power. The liability to disease in the ear increases from birth to the 40th year ot age, and decreases bom thence to old age. Men are more subject to ear affections than wo men, in the proportion of three to two. The external ear is affected in 25 per cent, of sufferers, the middle ear in 67 per cent., and the inner ear in 8 per cent of total cases. The left ear is more frequently affected than the right in the proportion of five to four. Acute affections of the middle ear occur Jess frequently in summer and autumn than in 5, 1884. spring and winter, and of the total number of cases in the ear clinics, 53 per cent, are cured, 30 per cent, are improved, 7 per cent, are unimproved and three-tenths of 1 per cent, end fatally. An English dressmaker advances these sensible views: As a dressmaker, I should be glad to add a few words to the discussion that has appeared in your paper. We all agree that reform in dress is needed, but the question arises, how is it to be carried out? No lasting reform can be hoped for while dressmakers as a class are uneducated women, having only a superficial knowledge of the form they undertake to clothe. It is they who introduce each fresh enormity, and it is a fact that very few Englishwomen have suf ficient courage to question the decree of a fashionable dressmaker. It seems to me that dressmaking should be regarded as an art, and practiced by educated women, properly trained in anatomy and physiology, taught to combine colors artistically, and to study grace in form and beauty in design. Women would soon learn to be grateful to a dress maker who would make their clothes both healthy and beautiful; and with an army such as this there might be gome hope of resisting the yearly ravages of fashionr.? "hope that this will be accepted as a practical sugges tion, as it is offered by one who has tried it. The decision of the Supreme court of the United States last week in the case of Cap tain Charles Norton, of the Third cavalry, affects the interests of between nine hundred and one thousand officers of the army, and it will require between $400,000 and $500,000 to satisfy their claims. It was brought be fore the court upon appeal by the govern ment from the decision of the Court of Claims, and being a "class" case was consid erably advanced upon its docket. Captain Morton had made application to the second auditor for longevity pay, alleging that under the acts of Congress his time of service was to be computed from the date of his matri culation at West Point. The decision of the officers of the treasury was favorable, but in the meantime the Secretary of War had re ferred the subject to the Attorney General, who decided that computation should be made from the date of actual entry upon military duties with the army. Captain Morton thereupon carried his claim to the courts, where it was decided in his f avor.Longevity pay begins five years from the date of entering the service, at which time ten per cent, is added to the normal rates of pay of the officer's rank. A further addition of ten per cent, is thereafter made for each five years of additional service until the total increase reaches forty per cent. The decision is made under an act of Con gress passed in 1881, and its benefits do not accrue to officers who had reached the . maxi mum pay of their rank at the date of its passage. It is thought that the decision in directly confers the privilege of voluntary re tirement after a service of forty years from the date of matriculation at West Point. ELECTED, Hard on him. Sententious gent "Depend upon it, my dear Miss Sharpe, in most cases ignorance is Dliss.' " uruei iair one w ny aren't you happier, then?" Fun. It is said that American babies swallow 1,500 thimbles annually. This may account for the surprising amount of brass noticed in the composition of the grown-up American baby. Bridal cakes are sometimes kept for fifty or a hundred years, and no wonder. If the bride makes it herself she does not want to throw it away and nobody will eat it. Phil adelphia Call.

A correspondent in a recent number of the Irish Farmer's Gazette, who has a chicken farm of 25 acres, keeping 10,000 fowls, de scribes his method, which we condense as follows: I feed the fowls while young principally on boiled horse-flesh. As the time for fattening approaches, I gradually diminish the quanti ty, and during the last three or f our weeks leave it off altogether, when I fatten them upon potatoes, Indian meal, pollard and other grains. The flesh is of excellent flavor, quite white and remarkably firm. The birds are supplied with abundance of water, and kept scrnpnlously clean. I find- that where animal food is continued too long the fowls contract disease, and the quills of their feathers become charged with blood. On my farm are numerous well-ventilated buildings. The yard is divided into compartments by wire fences, containing a given number of fowls, classed according to their ages. Horse flesh constitutes the principal part of their l.l., - TXnraaa n n fi f. fni BATvinA am bought, and killed in slaughter houses on the premises. Nothing is lost; the skin is sold to fhe tanners, the heads and hoofs go to make Prussian blue, the large bones are made into buttons, the small ones ground for manure, and the marrow is bought by the perfumers, who sell it for bears' grease. The flesh is cut from the bones, cooked in immense boilers, and when cold chopped in a sausage machine. It is then seasoned with salt and pepper, which keeps it wholesome and contributes to the health of the fowls. Vegetable nutriment j for fowl is not sufficient. In winter they can not obtain the insects and worms necessary to maintain their health, hence do not lay. By giving them meat, they can be made to lay the year round. I hope to be able, next winter, to send 40,000 dozen eggs to market. Every good hen, I reckon, brings me, deduct ing failures, 15s. ($3.75) a year. They con tinue laying four years, and at the end of that time, after three weeks' fattening, are fit for the market, xne nens, wnicn are constantly lavincr. never want to set.

The dung is a very important item of profit. It is much sought after by market gardeners as one of the best manures known, its action being favorable to every kind of vegetable. HUNTING THE ELK IN GERMANY. Tbe Rare Game Reserved by the Em peror for Favored Gnest. IFrora the London Daily News. Vienna, Oct. 14. The crown prince of Austria is having some very rare sport elk hunting in eastern Prussia. In the Memel delta, between the mouths of the rivers Euss and Gilge, is situated the royal domain and hunting station of Ibenhorst. It is a low country, the plain interrupted in some parts bv broad wooded hills, which were formerly artificial dvkes. In winter, when tne river Memel is frozen and the waters rise, only the sandy hills and the great moor of Iben horst are visible above the vast plain of water. This distnct is the so-called "water steppe," with its rich vegetation of water and mcor plants, where the postman at certain seasons makes his rounds in a boat, and where in mild winters, when the waters of the flood are not turned into ice, and the Bof t eround does not bear either hoof or wheel, no communication between the isolated farms and villaees is nossible. The peasants of the Litthau call this period of the year the "Schalktarp." The hunting districts or lDennorsi consists of extensive woods, the moor, and large meadows. The woods contain hrs m the higher parts, willows and alder trees in the lower parts, with birch trees interspersed everywhere. -The forests do not pay in this part of the country, and the government, therefore, devoted them to the elk, which is fast dying out in Europe, and is interesting enonch to the sportsman to be entitled to a place of refuge. In olden times, when Ger many was almost exclusively forest and mnor the elk abounded everywhere, and Siegfried killed large numbers of what the "Nibelungen Lied" calls the "Grim Schalk." Rnt ita rlnfiniant ear and eve. its tameness, nH ita clumsiness in the chase, espeoially on frozen moors,soon caused it to beeom"rce, eastern Prussia, on the coasts of the Baltic in Russia in some parts of Sweden aW Nor way, in northern Siberia, in Canada, Jslaska, ti ,i A New "Rmnswick. A cnntnrv and a half aaro the woods oi eastern Prussia still contained great numbers of the elk. for manuscript chronicles tell us that in 1718 no less than forty, and in 1731 more than fifty were killed, in one single aay, Ta Av-tfnntinn of this rare animal has pro oressed raoidlv' since then, and in 1848 the number ot elK oeer m me lureoio m rinrot wan Tedneed to eleven. King Freder . i .? , - j , . x . r ii.t. ick William IV. of Prussia happily published a snncinl law rjrotectinz this kind ot game and it has gradually increased again, so that in 1882 the were no less than 149 deer in the woods of Ibenhorst and Tawellningken. Of course, the limited number of the deer enable very few sportsmen to take part in this kind of chase, and the imperial family of Germany reserve them for their most ohcWsliml miests. Ibenhorst cannot be reached wtitoafa some adiffinnltyJIhajraUc wav takes the emperor's guests as far as Til sit. Thereat of the road, leading through water, forest, field, and moor, must be trav eled in carriages. The woods are in very bad condition, because the elk is very fond of eating the young buds and leaves.and breaks all the branches within its reach. The mouth of the elk reminds us of the camel; its neck, covered with a thick mane, is short and close set, like that of the bull, and its movements resemble those of a half-bred horse. It is not shy, and does' not fly very fast before the hunter, so that it is not difficult to aim at. Its powerful antlers are, however, a splendid trophy, to be valued by every true sports man. There is one original figure on the domain of Ibenhorst Kamouat, the "father ot tne elk," as the people call him. The only lan guage he speaks is "Litthauisch;" the only planes he has seen are the vast forests, in which he provides for the elk as if it were his family. He is fond of showing a place where he helped tne uennan crown puueess out of a ditch into which she had fallen from her pony carriage, overturned by her horses who had shied at the sudden appearance of a herd of elks. Bamouat is very proud of having been able to help the princess in ner dilemma; but he makes no difference between the sportsmen intrusted to his care, and treats them all with equal frankness. Thus he said to Prince Frederick Charles of Prussia,the great soldier and sportsman, to whom he showed the way through the forests of Iben horst: "Oh, yes, you may smoke as long as you like; but if you want to see elks then your Koyai Highness, for God's sake, hold your tongue." magnetized Watches. From the Nashville American. A young lady who teaches school in this city has a delicately-made little Swiss watch set in a bracelet. The faee of it is about the size of a dime, and the works are protected by a thin disc of glass about the same size as the under side of the bracelet next to the arm. In fact, it sets right over tho young ladv's milse. and the watch is the wonder and admiration of all her friends. But the little watch never did keep time, though it did cost five hundred francs in Paris. The jewelers to whom it was carried told the lady that she ought not to expect a watch the size of a peanut to keep time, and one workman said such small watches had to bo bought on tho principle of a chance in a grag bag, as they sometimes turned out good timepieces, and at others were wholly unreliable. The young lady noticed, however, that whenever she loaned her five-hnndred-francs bracelet to her sister, the watch kept much better time, and when she kept it locked up in her jewel-case it kept the time almost as well as any ordinary timepiece. A well-known physician of this oity had his attention called to this matter a few days ago, by the young lady's mother, and ex plained it in a minute from a physiological standpoint. He said the springs and engi nery of the watch were so delicate that they were affected by change of temperature and feeling in the young lady's body. When she became excited the watch doubtless went fast and in her' calmer moments it probably went slower. Upon investigation this hy pothesis was verified, and the phenomena have excited so much curiosity that, last night, the young lady gave an exhibition to a few friends of the manner in which the watch was compelled to answer to the effect of the change in her various moods. A gentleman who his a very fine gold visited the engine-room of the Brush Elec tric Light company on Saturday night, and told an American reporter yesterday that his watch had not run steadily since. He took it to a jeweler who told him it was magnet ized, and would have to be demagnetized be fore it would run well again. The gentle man said that his watch would run for an hour and a half and then stop for a half hour and then run for an hour and a half again, and kept the system np ever since it was magnetized.
