One of Stanley's Adventures.
While Stanley the African explorer was working his way down the great river whose union with the sea he was the first to discover, he had thirty-two adventures with the hostile natives in some of which he lost a number ot men. Due of these adventures is thus describ ed by a correspondent of the Boston Journal : The inhabitants had assemble d oil the bank, seeing tills curious boat tilled with strangers approaching, and .Stanley's men said they thought the cries which were almost deafening, of a frienuly nature. But Stanley thought not. To him the cries seemed warlike. However, visious of eggs, chickens, tresh milk, and prebaps goat's llesh, for his exhausted uteu, flashed before his eyes, aud he gave the signal to put into the cove. No sooner had the boat reached the sloping bauk, than it was hauled fifty yards up on the shore by a hundred hands, and beiore Stanley and his astonished men could realise where they were, they loutul them selves in the centre of a circle of savages each of whom was aiming an arrow at the unlucky wight*. There were sev eral hundred of these people, called the Buuibrieh, after the name of their is land on the shores, and [Stanley says that he expected to be instantly massa cred. llis gun and those of his men lay in the bottom of the boat, and to stoop to pick them up would have brought a shower of arrows and' instant death. 80 he endeavored to reason with the savages, and showed them some cloths and beads, which they accepted. They crowded around tneboat, however, and one man took hold ot Stanley'sliair and gave it a violent wrench, thinking that it was a cap and would come ofl, dis closing wool. This was hard to bear, and meanwhile, one of Stanley *s men received a stunning blow from aspear haudle. Then the explorer made an other litte speech, asking tor food and to be allowed to continue his journey promising more cloth and beads. The savages thou made several ferocious de monstrations, rushing down upon him, gnashing their teeth and shaking their spears in his verj* face; but they did not kill him and finally retired to con sult. This mortal agony of suspense lasted from nine In the morning until three iu the afternoon, during which time Stanley did not get out of his boat, nor did he take his eyes off the island ers. At last, seeing 110 chance of any thing but death, he gave the signal to his men to be ready at a certain cry to drag the beat into the water. Presen tly the islanders bugan to return, and something told Stanley not to wait. So he shouted the word of command, and the boat dew down the slope into the water, his men diving all around it like so many muskrats, in their eagerness to escape the javelins and arrows which they knew would come. Stanley pick ed up his elephant gun, and, as an is lander bouudiug on the beach was pre paring to fire an arrow after the boat, he shot him, and the immense bullet, passing through the savage's body, killed another behind him. Meantime It was discovered that the oars were lost, and Stanley's men were pad dling with their hands as fast as they could to get out of arrow range, when they were horrified by seeing thirty-six savages put off from Bumbrich in three large canoes. The men in Stanley's boat were anxious to fire at once, but be ordered them to allow the canoes to approach, and succeeded in sinking two of them by firing into their sides at the water line. In two minutes two dozen savages were struggling in the water and beating away for the shore with vigorous strokes; the third canoe renounced pursuit, and Stanley and his men found themselves safe, but still half dead from hunger when they ioined the main body of the expedition. Crazy Feople at the White House. Crazy people are constantly calling at the White House on all sorts of errands with the President, but the ushers generally find out their infirm ity and get them out of the building in some way or other, though some slip past into the Presidential presence, and others have to be turned over to the police. There are a few who come regularly, like the oid man living out near Bladen9burg, who calls every two month 3 to claim the presidential chair to which he has been elected. He would have come sooner to enter upon his duties, but work on his farm prevented his leaving home. The last time he called he was more persistent than usual, and Informed the ushers that he would make no changes, except to turn Secretary Schurz out of the cabinet. He was asked it he had a wife, and re plying in the negative, was told that no unmaried man could be president, whereupon he started right home to get a wife. About Ave times in the year a neatly dressed man of 35 years comes down from Pennsylvania to take possession of the White House and treasury, which have been deeded to him.; The man who ended the rebellion wanted to see the President the other morning and was told that he saw cal lers at 414 10th street, a police station. The man went there promptly and took a seat, but after a time the keeper wanted to know his business. He had just called to see the President. The keeper took In the situation and con ducted the visitor to a cell, promising to show the President right in when he came. A few weeks ago an Ohio as tronomer was on hand with a request to be made superintendent of the naval observatory, that he might avert the earth's impending collision with the other planets. A Maine woman walked into the White House one day, and spreading a large Bible she carried under her arm on a window-seat, began to preach on the necessity of being born again. She had come on a mission to convert President Haye3 and when she was turned out, she repeated verse after verse from the Bible in a loud voice, and kept it up ail the way down the concrete walk to the gate. —Vermont has a population of 334,- 455 a gain of 3904 in ten years. FARM AND GAR DRV. DAMPNESS IN HUVSKS. — Many house holders are sorely troubled by the growth ot fungi in damp rooms to which they communicate, in a short time, an unpleasant, smell an I an un wholesome atmosphere. It is not only our cellars that are apt to be affected by fungoid growth, but the walls ot the adjacent rooms, and nit ny bed rooms on the ground tloor are similarly leudcrou useless alter a moist season. Many re medics have been proposed to destroy this fungoid growth, or to prevent its occurence; but hitherto these remedies have been too expensive or totally inetfieacious. Recently an alcoholic sola ion of five grammes of salicylic acid per litre of water lor washing the walls ot rooms has been recommended. Hits Is exactly one-half per cent., or one part sulicxlic acid tor 200 putts liquid. No doubt the mold tuay be de s 1 roved temporarily by this us by many other solutions, such, lor instance, us corrosive sublimate or carbolic acid. The true remedy, however, is not this temporary expedient, nor attempting to hide the dampness by enamel paiuts, etc.; it is 10 cui oil the source ot moist ure ami to nut the watcrproot materials outside ami not inside the walls. THK RicHKsr HAY. —Grass made into hay 111 such a manner as to retain the most possible of all its natural juices, makes the richest and best hay. iu order to do ihi> it should be exposed to the sun as little as possible, as a bright, clear sun is very apt to bui .1, and thus reduce quality. Hay made iu the shade comes 1 lie nearest to natural grass; but this is impracticable. The nearest ap proach is either to cure in the cock, with hay cap.-, or by constant, livquent stirring with the tedder; thus curing in the air more, and sunning small por tions only. One day's curing is si lli cieut, provided the air is dry and dry ing, w here the grass is dry w hen cut, and does not yield over two and one half tons of dry hay to the acre. It to be left out over night, It should be raked and put into cooks while yet warm, before any dew begins to lull in the afternoon. The time when mois ture begins to collect in the at-ernoon Is earlier than most persons are aware of; therefore it Is be.i to be in season. W E find the following description 01 a patent lruit picker: "It is situply a ring or collar of slice metal lour or live inches high ami the same 111 diam eter. with ilie upper portion formed into half a dozen points like a crown, each being covered with an isdia rub ber disc or shield to prevent the lruit from injury by contact. A socket in the side receives a light pole of any required length, and from the bottom of the ring or crown extends alight hose ot cotton drilling or other light material to convey the lruit to the hand of the operator or into a basket, wagon or wherever desired. Standing on the ground, the operator reaches lor the tru.t, the points of the crown passing 011 each side ot the stem, ami a light, upward shove easily detaches the lruit and it drops down through the crown and hose. The operator can hold the pole in one hand and the hose in the other, or tiie hose can be hooked to a small, movable bracket placed 00 the pole for that purpose, thus allowing ot handling the pule with both hands, or an assistant can manage the hose." TIIK ARMY \\ ORM — The new appear ance ot this pest 111 various parts of the oountiy simultaneously lias created great alarm among the farmers, lor its ravages are so great and so speedy and the difficulty 01 stopping them be fore the mischief is done s suffi. ient to strike terror into the heart ot the far mer, lor he stands almost powerless while his best fields ot grain and grass and corn are laid bare before his fight. The only preventive is unceasing w aicthulness, and the promptest action when the danger is near. United ac tion too is necessary; upon its appear ance upon any farm, notice should bo given to the tieigobors; tiiey should promptly assemble and render assis tance to prevent tue iunher progress of the army, ibis can be more or less thoroughly done by burning the grain field that is attacked, by using the rol ler to mash the worms, or by ditching the field to prevent its further march. NEVER allow a lien to sit in a nest that has been u.-ed for mouths with out overhauling. When *-he gets broody, give her a new, clean near. Examine the box to see whether there are any llee In the corners. Whether any are found or not. it is a gate thing to treat it as if they were discoverd to be in possess.on. a little coal-oil run down the corners inside; then give It a thorough whitewashing. A hen set in a nest prepared thus is insured against lice until the brood is out, af ter which the whole nest and box is to be again overhauled and treated ex actly as if it were very lousy. Too many are careless in this matter. Ibey complain of lice but do not ex ercise sullicient vigilance to keep them away. It is much easier to keep them off than to drive them away after they have once got possession. Lousy hen quarters are not profitable, nor are they creditable. Clean out the lice! To KEEP OIK FLIES. —It is claimed that ii a couple oi baudsful of the common black-w ilnut leaves are put in a vessel of water ill night, and next, morning boiled for lifteen or twenty minutes; then when cold take a sponge or rag and moisten the eyes, neck, legs, etc., of a horse, the dies will give those places a wide berth. This may not be true but it will not cost much to try it. It is said also that if carbolic acid soap is rubbed on the neck and legs of a horse, he will not be bothered by Hies. The strong odorol the soap drives thest miserable horse tormenters away ; and besides, the soap gives the animal's coat a tine polish. Jake a dry cake of soap, and rub on after grooming. Cows when they expend vitality in labor eat more; when they expend it in keeping warm they need more for lood, and when they either lay on tat. or produce milk, or grow need food m proportion. How Some Hone* Were Colored. A Hartford young man boarded a horse car the other day with a bunch of roses. One was white, one green and one of a delicate flesh-clored tint. These flowers attracted the attention of the passengers, both ladies and geu tlemen. One lady remarked that she had seen the buds of the green rose and another said she had seen the rose Itself, but had never seen any so per fect and so lovely as this one. The flesh-colored one was also commented upon and praised. Finally the young man volunteerd the information that the coloring was done by putting the stem of one into green ink, and the other into red ink. Although the leaves were beautifully colored, the coloring would not rub off. It only re quired ten minutes to change the color. JXj'.tf KHTIC.

A TORONTO patent medicine man re cently ruined the sale of his "Cure all Butter " by publishing u testimonial from a man who asserted that "his wife, who had not been able to speak above a whisper lor five years, had her voice completely restored by the use of one bottle."

HUMOROUS. Tint Pkksrvatiox ok Cidku.<— A pure, sweet cider is only attainable from clean, sound fruit and the fruit should therefore be carefully examined and whip before grinding, in the press use haircloth or gunny in place |of straw. As the older runs from the press let It pass through a hair sieve into a large open vessel that will hold as much juice as can be expressed in one day. In one day, or sometimes less, the pom Ice will raise to the top and in a short time grow very tlilck. When little white bubbles break through it draw off the liquid through a very smull spigot, placed about three inches from the bottom, so that the less may be left behind. Tne cider must he drawn off into very clean, sweet casks preferably fresh liquor casks, and vlosely watched. Tne moment the white bubbles, before mentioned, are perceived rising at the buughoie, rack it again. It is usually unnecessary to repeat this three limes. Then tiil up ttie cask with cider in every raspeotlike that originully contained iu it; add a tumbler of warm sweat oil, and bung uptight. For very tine cider it is custo in u y to add at tills stage of the process, about half a pound of glucose (starch sugar), or a smaller portion of white sugar. The cask should then lie allow ed to remain la a cool place until the cider lets required the desired flavor. In the meantime clean barrels for its re ception should be prepared as fol lows Some clean strips of rags are dipped in melted sulphur, lighted and burned in the bungliole, and the hung laid loosely on the end of the rag so as to retain the sulphur vapor within the barrel. Then lie up half a pound of mustard seed In u coarse muslin hag ami put in the barrel, till the barrel with cider, and add about a quarter of a pound of isinglass or line gelatine dissolved in hot water. Tills is the old fashioned way, and will keep eider in the same condition as when it went into the barrel, if kept in a cool place, lor a year. Professional cider makers are using calcium sulphite (sulphide ol liuie), Instead of mustard and sulphur vtpor; it is much more convenient and effectual. To use it, it is dimply requisite to add one-eighth to one-quarter of an ounce of sulphite to each g illou of cider in the cask, first mixing the powder in about a quart ol the cider, then pouring it back into tbeca-kjand givln ; the lattera tl o o g i shaking and rolling.

The man's life had been despaired of by the previous attendants. Amputation at the thigh was promptly decided upon and skill fully performed by Dr. Pierce, and as after treatment to purify the blood and prevent a recurrence of the malady the doctor's Golden Medical Discovery was freely prescribed.

"Z. E. Haukison, M. D., "Gordoiisville, Vs.," WliMt Ho! Witliiu There! Actors have hard times as well as other folks, and the experience of I lie talented Mr. Masher proves it. It seems that he was playing in a piece in Detroit, which required him, at a very thrilling point, to pull a handkerchief from the hip pocketof another actor and present It to the heroine with some very glowing words. The other actor, Mr. & n, t£K> was somewhat addicted to the use ol liqwor, and while he dressed lor the performance he got too full and went to sleep. Then some of the other actors removed the hundkcrclwef from his pocket, aud cutting a hole in the pocket,drew a corner of Mr. Suigg's shirt into It. It was a peculiarity of Mr. Masher that when lie acted lie got so dead in earnest that nothing could stop him, and when it came to the handkerchief scene, and he rushed up to the only half awake .Snigg, lie grab bed for the handkerchief and found it didn't couie, but he fulled to notice the situation, The piece couldn't go on till lie produced the handkerchief, so h gave another desperate tug. The only result was that a wild look came in Suigg's eve and he tried to whisper to Masher that there was something wrong. But Masher didn't understand, ihe people were waiting for him; It was uu awkward pause. Masher was a man of great s'renght and lie gave a last desperate tug at what lie believed was tne handkerchief. It came, but witli a sound of tearing, and Snigg was yanked quite off his feet, and his eyes nearly burst from their sockets from the pressure on hi- throat, before the neck band br >ke. Masher got most of the garment except the sleeves, and the sudden disappearance of Snlgg's sh rt boson cr.-ated much excitement in the audience. Even then, Masher lidn't notice what he had done, and rushing forward tendered the garment :o the hero ne. But she screamed and fainted and the audience began to yell, and Snigg, having recovered his breath, became terribly mad and made a rush at Masher with a property sword and chased ill in about, and the stage mana ger, who was nearly wild, jumped in and declared that M nher had disgraced ins house, and then the curtain went d >wrn, and a little while after the mana ger came in front of it wic.li a black eve and dismissed the audience.

Having exhausted the skill of three physicians, 1 was complete!/ discouraged, and so weak I could with difficulty cross the room alone. 1 began taking your 'Favorite Prescription' and using the local treatment recommended In your 'Common Sense Medical Adviser.' 1 commenced to improve at once. In three months I was perfectly cured, and have had no trouble since. I wrote a letter to iny family paper, briefly mentioning how my health had been restored, and offering to send the full particulars to any one writing me for tiiein and enclosing a stamped envelope for reply. I have received over four hundred letters. In reply, I have described my case and the treatment nsed, and earnestly advised them to 'do likewise. 1 From a great many I have received second letters of thanks, stating that they had commenced the u'e of Favorite Prescrip tion, sent for the 'Medical Adviser,' and applied the local treatment so fully and plainly laid down therein, ami were much better already."
