NASH, — AGENTS FOR — Nichols’ Dust and Gas Tight Wrought Iron Furnaces! THE invention of the WROUGHT IRON FUR NACE, was the result of a thorough and pains taking investigation by Dr. James R. Nichols, Ed itor of the Boston Journal ot Chemistry, into the ob jections or defects in nearly all the Hot Air Furnaces now in use. During the past three years Five Hun dred have been told. They have proved competent to supply a delightful, pure current of w-rra air to Churches, Stores, School Houses and Dwellings, and in every place where used they have been a perfect success aiid given entire satisfaction. The great distinguishing features of this Furnace, arc its Simplicity of Construction, the perfect sale* guards against the passage of Dust ami deleterious coal gases into the rooms warmed by it. The heat radiating surfaces are made of Seller Iron, rivlted together in the same manner as Siea n i oilers, am not a particle ot gas or dust can p ss through. The original of this Furnace was constructed three years ago by Dr. Nic* ols, for private use, as a safeguard against those infractions of the laws of health to which he himself as well as others were subjected bv the use cf Hot Air Fa naces. Dr Nichols says with three yars use of my Furnace I am satisfied*that no deleterious gases or dust can flow into the rooms lroin it. In the NICHOLS WROUGHT IRON FURNACE, we have a coal burning device much cheaper than any Steam Apparatus, less troublesome, one which supplies air as pure and healthful as that irom Steam or hot water. It does away with all the seri ous objections which have existed against Hot Air Furnaces and its sanitary advat ta^es are such as to commend it to the attention cf all intelligent House owners and heads of Fami ies.

Problem for Financiers.—Toconvert afloat ing debt into a sinking fund.—Punch. The statistical man proves that a person in the United States is six times as likely to kill himself as lightu.ng is to kill him. A well-known authoress gives it as an item of domestic felicity that the man of the fami ly should be absent at least six hours per day. Minnehaha Falls will dispel its abnormal simplicity with a grand suspension bridge. Where is old Nokomis about these days ? Industry isn’t always rewarded. A Sing Sing convict worked eighteen months on a false key, and it was taken away from him the day he had it completed. Playing cards with black borders is a late , nobby convenience to people who have lost friends and think they know something about euchre. Some one tells the story of a steamboat pas seuger watching the revolving light or a light house on the coast and exclaiming; “Gosh! the wind blows that light out as fast as the man cau strike it.” Scruples.—English tourist (having arrived at Greenock on Srmday morning): “My man, what’s your charge tor rowing me across the frith?” Boatman, “Weel, sir Iwaajist thinkin’ I canna break the Sawbath day for no less than f'fteen shuU’u’sI”.—Puuch. The editor of an Illinois paper thinks fish ing, as a general rule, doesn’t pay. “We stood all day in the river, last week,” he says, “but caught nothing—until we got home.” It js suggested that if the supply of pigeons gives out before the next trap shoot—cats may be substituted in their place. It is a happy suggestion, and, if carried out would make the nights more quiet. That's what’s the matter. The Indians have lost their legal status. We have been thinking, for some time, that they acted like it, and our suspicion is now confirmed by competent Government authority, It is almost certain to cure a man of drunk enness if he will go to sleep on the railroad track during one of his sprees. A locomotive at Leomister, Massachusetts, last week, cured a young man very quickly. He was buried the next day. A youth of Salisbury, Conn., four years old, and his young sister, saw a rat hasten in to a hole iu the barn-floor. Said he, “Sis, the Bible says ‘Watch and pray.’ You pray while I watch the hole, aud I’ll swat him across the snoot when he comes out. A Green Bay merchant put out a sign of “ice water free.” Another put out a sign of free lemonade, and a third offered every cus tomer ten cents in money. A fourth man who couldn’t think of anything better, got up a dog fight down cellar and drew all the crowd. _____ A Sioux City lowly went to a gallery to have her picture taken. After putting her in posi tion, the artist put the plate in the camera, and told her to look at a certain place on the wall. She wasn’t certain of seeing it well from where she sat, and so got up and walked over to it, but failed to discover anything curious about it. “The oldest Mason in the United States” has died once more. His name was Fonda, and he lived and diedin Paterson. It is a strange dispensation of Providence that prom nent Masons should be taken away with such scrupulous regard to seniority. It is always the oldest one in the country that dies. A patriotic Pole informs that considerable portion of the world which is not familiar with his jaw-wrenching language, that the name of Kosciusko should be pronounced as if spelled Kotschewshko. No wonder Free dom shrieked when it was announced that a man with such a name had fallen. It would make anybody shriek. One of the proprietors of the Petersburg (Va.' Index, in going over the office recently, discovered that a slab used as an imposing stone was the tomb-stone of a near relation, who had died nearly forty years ago. The engraved side of the stone was downwards, and how it came into use in the office is un explained. A tale of two Norristown husbands—One, upon leaving his office the other night, stop ped at a book store, paid $1.25 lor a new nov el, and went home and presented his wife with “A Pair of Blue Eyes.” The other, after leaving his office, stopped at a saloon, paid $1.25 for whiskey, and went home and gave his wife a pair of black eyes. A little boy being instructed in morals by his grandmother, the old lady told him that all such terms as “by goll,” “by jingo,” “by thunder,” etc., were only little oaths, and but little better than profanities. In fact, she said he could tell a profane oath by the pre fix “by,” All such were oaths. “Well, then grandmother,” said the hopeful, “Is ‘by tele graph’’ in the newspapers, swearing?” “No,” said thA old lady, “that is only lying. Emma Black, livmg in a small towu on the Mississippi,. saved a man's life the other day in a curious way. He was fishing and tum bled out of his boat, and being unable to swim, would ha ve perished, ha 1 not the mai den, discovering bis dauger. swam out to him, and thrrowu 'S Into his hands Jrer back hair, four feet m length, towed him to the land. The Pittsburg Com mercial says that the horror which is to fretve the marrow iu the bones of the Dernc eracy during the coming political campaign is “CiBs'^rism.” What the word means an. i what particular danger to the Government it indicates, not one man n a thousand can te l), but it is just as good a bugaboo as any other-.; and the average Dem ocrat, always in terror_,about somslbiug that is going to happen, may as well get scared at “Cajsarism” as anything*.else. It will trench terribly on the dipthong bo.x in small country offices, and cause a sudden run on the tJ'Pe founderies for sorts, besides causing conftts.’on among Democratic orators to tlie Pr0PeH pronunciation and meaning o<f this word; but i after all these disunities are c aired there will still remain behind the chief < difficulty a& to what all this fuss is about anyh. »w. It seems that the Grand Du. ke Alexis lias not been cured of his love for the daughter of his former tutor, notwithstan iding the ex tensive travels which have in terrupted its course, and now the Czar has g iven his con sent to a morganatic marriage. This will leave the young man tree to coni tm-t a royal marriage hereafter, if political co; asicknatious make it expedient. This may be -very digni fied and respectable for royal fol fcs, but the common people would scorn such an arrange ment. If the maiden has the spirit which she ought to have, she will accep t the Grand . Duke’s hand on no such terms, at id he should bo man enough to make her his wife on reg ular footing or give her up altogel ’.her. Such compromising in domestic relation » is uot cent among humble people, and P° royalty can sanctify it. ' Spirit of the New York Press. The H or hi commends Pressident Eliot’s report on a national university and taking it as a text, preaches as follows: The nation has indeed and can have noth ing to do with higher education, and it on ht to be prohibited trom interfering with any ed ucation whatever. So much education as is requisite to make a man a good citizen is the most that anybody can claim should lie im parted to him by the government upon which the Constitution devolves it to fix the condi tions of suffrage and citizenship. But as wo have said before in discussing this same sub ject, the sort of instructiou which is any view of the powers and duties of government It is the function of government to impart does not include what is properly 11 be called a university education. Even if the education needtui for a citizen, whatever special call ing lie may adopt, may rightly be ptovid ed by the State when there is reason to tear that in default of action by the State it will not be provided at al«, it is not the business of the State to pro/ide the educa liou which shall fit men for special pursuits, nor the education which shall merely enlarge and refine men’s minds. State aid is, in deed, indirectly given in most States for these purposes, but it seems to us wrongly given. The Herald berates the salary-grabbers in a column of vigorous writing, saying that their salaries were big enough before. But in regard to the President’s salary it says: The reasoning which applies to Congress men is not at all applicable to the President >f the United States. His office is the high jit of the Ameiican people. It is t dignity and the occupant of the noose has always found it difficult to supi>u.. exactions and yet retire with suf ficient means to live worthily jf his great of fice for the rest of his life. Twenty-five thous and dollars a year was a pitiful sum to pay a President. An English prince without char acter gets five times as much wheu he marries, though there are nearly a dozen princes and princesses to be provided for. Members of Parliament, constructively at least, get noth ing, and the cost of living in London has never yet been urged as a reason for increas ing the stipends lor service on committees. It ought to be the rule of a free people to pay moderate, not liberal, salaries to their legislators, but to support the dignity of their Chief Magistracy with becoming liberality. The action in respect to the President was right, but the cupidity of Congressmen in their own behalf was disgraceful, and will be punished as it has been rebuked by the people. A Wonderful Woman. The St. Louis Globe has been publishing an account of Mrs. Ellen S. Tupper, the bee cul turist of the West. Mrs. Tupper is a daughter of the late Hon. Noah Smith, of Calais, once Secretary of State and well known in political circles in Maine. The husband of Mrs. Tup per was for years a merchant in Houlton, and ber sister is the wife of Collector Whidden, of Calais. The following is an account of her bee en terprises : She purchased two colonies, and began to work with them, meanwhile reading everyj thing which she could find relating to bee culture; but she soon learned that theory and practice were two quite opposite matters. Her two colonies increased rapidly. She bought improved hives as fast as sue could af ford them. She soon after became interested in Italian bees, and procure 1 a few. She then began to write about bees, giving the result of her practical knowledge. Her repu tation soon began to be established; she was sought out by various journals, and she now writes regularly for several papers. She also has the position of lecturer on bee-keeping, natural history of bees, etc., iu the State Ag ricultural College, at Ames, whither she goes regularly. With the officers of that institu tion she lias visited different parts of the State, holding Farmer's Institutes, and wherever she goes never fails to elicit much interest in her subject. Ih the Spring of 1872, she, with her family, removed to lies Moines, in order to gain"a more central location. She formed a partner ship with lira. Annie Silvery, thereby adding abundant capital to her practical knowledge, and the firm was known as the Italian Bee Company. An agent was despatched to Lake Como, Italy, to procure queen bees, and the bus'ness was rapidly increased. In the Fall of that year she purchased the interest of Airs. Savary in the business, and placed her bees tor the Winter in the cellar of her house, at Cottage drove, about one mile from the City. Early this Spring, while she was in the city, with her family, her house took fire and her two hundred "hives of bees were destroyed. Writing to a friend she said:—”1 came liume at dai k to find my house a wreck, and the two hundred stocks of bees ruined. Is it not bard sometimes to believe that all things work together for our good? I have worked so bard, and am so tired that I can form no ‘plan for the future.” It was an hour of trial which would have discouraged many a bravo man. After years of toil and labor, with a large indebtedness to ber late partner, a large family, an invalid husband, thus to find her self almost where she began, was soul-trying, but, with the indomitable will which she pos sesses. she marshaled her energies for a new battle of life, and amid all her misfortunes, there was not a shadow on her face. Money ed men came forward and tendered her mean* but she refused it, choosing to paddle her own canoe. With two hundred dollars, she purchased four Italian queens, and with a few st icks of bees which she secured else where, she started again. Soon after, a farm f r from a distance offered her fifty colonic r of common black bees, to be paid for when she pleaspd and at what p' ice she plea; ed. Mr. James Smith, the well-known horticulturist, who resides a mile south of the city, and two miles from her residence, offered her the use ot his fruit farm, on which to set up her new colonies, and she accepted the kind offer aud removed her bees there, and immediately set about removing them to movable comb-hives avd Italianizing mem. The colony will this season increase from fifty to one hundred and two, tnd will pro duce over 7000 pounds of honey; so that be fore the year is gone she will have recovered very much from her loss. At her home she has twenty colonies of royal blood from which she supplies her trade, together with tions by each ocean steamer. She will soon be able to fill all orders again. In reply to a question the other day, as to what hives she used, she replied, ‘-The cheapest l can get; they do not cost over $1.50 each; but I want one side so it can be removed, a movable cap, and the inside filled with movable frames. The worst enemies I have are patent hive agents. They cannot buy me nor will I buy their hives. I own the right for several States for hives, and have a hundred pateut hives piled up on my lot, but I do not use them nor sell them. “Well,” said I, “how about the moths and worms ?” “I don’t have any about my hives, as I will show you,” said she, and she removed the side of a hive, and laid ou'side frame after frame of comb filled with honey and covered with bees, standing the frames around outside the hive inspecting them carefully. This she docs nearly every dry, to find the queen and any bug or worm that may get in. These frames she has filled with the comb which she has saved from the ruins of the fire, and the bees are filling it nicely. Mrs. Tupper in person is of small stature, dark blue eyes, thin features, well developed brain, somewhat bent with toil and the weight of years, i.ervous, sanguine ten pera ment, speaks rapidly, and uses no superflu ous words, modest and unassuming in man ner, and what would be called in plain terms, hTt business person she is one of tbo most active and resolute in the city. She fits into the business of the capital city and fills her place just as nicely and as fittingly as anybody. Business men accept it courteous ly and admire her modest demeanor and per severance. She attends personally to all ship ments of bees, honey-extractors, hives, Ac., to all correspondence, ami her bees. There was not a day during the last severe wit ter, and the cold, wet spring, that she was not in the city attending to business. Hard Pine Timber On hand and sawed to dimen ,0n».
