Philadelphia, Dec 24, 1873. I SELDOM, if ever, pick up a newspaper without seeing, among the first items that arrest niv.at I tent ion, the record of a terrible boiler explosion. Very many causes are assigned for this loss ot life and property. A great deal is said as to wbat should lie done and what should not be done. But 1 scarce ly ever hear it said that these explosions are due to an accumulation of Seale in the Boiler, and yet eight out of ten instane s that occur in our midst are un doubtedly due to this cause. Now, permit me to say that I manufacture a Com position that will readily and thoroughly remove this Incrustation: and while I am constantly sending it over the Uuited States, 1 exact no pay for its use un less it gives perfect satisfaction and fulfils all ,be claims I make for it. My preparation will remove Scale from any Boiler, no matter how deeo may be the ircrusation, and at the same time it will prevent injury to the Boiler | frnm anything which may be held in solution by the water contained m it. This article will absolutely r.rttvent the formal ion of Scale if timely introduced. 1 'i he nowder which I manufacture has been care ♦niiv tinted by some of the ablest chemists in the Str- and Its fitness to keep iron clean aud to preserve it Itas been demonstrated by them in the mtf vnu wni'seml for ruy circnlar.vritli my terms and If you will *en * i ■ J # 0!llli j thjnk j wiu be ablVto'convince the most sceptical that this compo ait ion will justify all I claim for it.

The father told one of his little girls the other day that she was “a thing of beau ty,” and she meekly replied that she would rather be “a boy forever.” Professor Proctor seems to have been guilty of a paradox. In one of his recent lectures he distinctly stated that there was no animal life on the moon, “and ylt immajetly aftber,” says Felix O’Fyne, “he showed us a hape of lunar craters.” The flumes for shooting lumber at various places on the Pacific coast region are immense affairs. One to carry lumber from the Sierras to Chico is to be forty miles long, thirty miles of which are already constructed, and the oth er ten miles will be finished in sixty days.

Almost every morning after break fast, when Sallie is sweeping the parlor, he gives me a sixpence to go out and play.” Sal lie received a short notice to quit. Senator Scott was talking to a Pennsylvania Sunday-school, a Sunday or two ago,and ask ed the scolars why Simon was kept in prison. One of the teachers quietly prompted a boy to say that it was for a hostage, and the youth not quite catching the words, piped out: “He was detained for postage.” Alias—Mrs. Sarah Briggs (reading her “lo cal”): “Sakes alive!

The otl'er night he took up the pack to play a gam’e with his little daughters, two zealous players, although of tender yeais. After playing for some time he observed that all the leading cards were curiously but systematically nicked or dog-eared. Upon inquiring the reason of this, one of his young opponents replied, replied, “Why, Eddy Anderson did it. He comes in and plays with us, and he likes to know what cards we hold.” Talk about the innocence of chiihood.—Boston Transcript. Mr. O’Clarence’s hens got into the next yard and scratched up the garden, and the woman of the house came to see Mrs. O’Clarence about it, and a war of words en sued. When Mr. O’Clarence came home, Mrs. O’Clarence was terribly excited, and gave him an hysterical account of the affair, winding it up with a shower of tears, and this triumphant declaration: — ‘’Well, I don’t care: I had my new alpacca on any way— the mean thing!” The Climax of Prejudice. The Boston Globe chronicles a recent oc currence at the neighboring town ot Ljnn, which demonstrates how far ignorance and a narrow mind eau carry a person under the assumed cover of piety. It says: “On the evening of New Year’s day an en tertainment in aid cf the poor of the city was announced to take place at the vestiy of the North Congregational Church, the exercises of which were to consist of vocal and instru mental music, .roadings, etc. The Idea of such au entertainment originated with young persons, a girl and boy, aged respectively fourteen and fifteen years, the former being totally blind, but an excelhnt vocalist and musician. The time for the opening exercise had nearly arrived, when a deacon of the church in which the entertainment was being held walked up the aisle, and with upliited hands and affected horror, announced that the entertainment could not proceed as long as the house of God was desecrated by two American flags, which had been suspended as a curtain, and, at the same time, as an orna ment. At this strange announcement of the deacon, the audience naturally became indig nant, and a consultation was held which re sulted in the members ot several churches proffering the use of their chapels to the folks. The lime having grown so late it was decided to postpone the entertainment, and, together with their parents, the yonng folks left the hall thoroughly disgusted at the un happy conclusion of an affair which could not have failed of success, but for the affected conduct ot an overzealous person. The pro posed entertainment will take place at Con cert Hall at an early day.” Contempt of Conrt. Mr. Hawley walked'in, and closo athte heels stalkeed Bitters. Both seated them 4|9ses; the one on a chair, and the other on end. directly la front of the surrogate. Mr. dagger loosed at tbe dog with the solemn eye of a surrogate, and shook his head as only a surrogate can shake it. ‘Are you the witness?” inquired he of the dog s master. I am, sir,” replied Mr. Hawley. “I was subpeenaed to testily.” “ What’s that animal doing here?” de manded the surrogate. “Nothiug,” replied Mr. Hawley. “He comes when I come. He goes when I goes.” “The animal must leave the court. It’s contempt of court to bring him here, said Mr. Jagger, angrily. “Remove him instaut ly.” Mr Hawley had frequently been in atten dance at the police courts, and once or twice had a slight taste of the sessions; so that he was not so much struck with the surrogate as he might otherwise have been; he replied “I make no opposition sir, and shall not move a finger to prewent it. There's the animal, and any officer as pleases may re move him. I say nuffin ag in it. I knows what a contempt of court is; and that aiut Mi. Slagg laid down his pen, took off his spectacles, went up to the dog, and told him to get out; to which Bitters replied by snap ping at his fingers, as he attempted to touch . • . rfr- “W'ey was stariDg abstractedly out o' the window, The dog looked at him ed that Snapping at a scrivener’s fingers was perfectly correct, and resumed bis pleasant expression towards that functionary, tcca sioualiy casting a lowering eve at the surro gate as il deliberating wbetberto include him in his demonstrations of anger. ‘ Slagg, have you removed that dog? ’ said Mr. Jagger, who, the dog being under his very nose, saw that he had not. ‘"No si., he resists the court,” replied Mr. Slagg. •Call Walker to assist you,” said Mr. Jae ger, - Walker, a thin man in drabs, had antici pated something of the kind, and had acci dentally withdrawn as soon as he saw that there was a prospect of difficulty; so tbst the whole court was set at defiance by the doe. “Witness!” said Mr. Jagger. Mr. Rawley looked the court ftill in the face. “Will you oblige the court by removing that animal ?” said Mr. Jagger mildly. “Certainly, sir, said Mr.' Rawley. “Bit ters, go home.” Bitters rose stiffly and went out, first casting a glance at the man with the wig, for the purpose of being able to identify him on some future occ tsion; and was soon after seen from the window walking up the street with the most profounn gravity.—From the ’'Attorney" by John T. Irving. Mystebies of the Shawl Tbade.—A Paris letter says: Before leaving this subject I must relate a curious discovery made on this occasion. M. Guyetaut took me to see one of his first artists, who works at borne. In the front room of a modest apartment was the intelligent artist working at bis lathe, and in the back room was hi* wife working upon an Indian shawl. A fine cashmere, worth 4,000 francs, or, perhaps, (1,000 in New York, was cut into strings or figures, and on glauc- . ing at it I could not help crying: “Ah! bow iu the world did this fine shawl get so badly damaged? Was it eateu by the rats?” M, Guyetaut laughed and said; “Oh, ouvriere Monsieur, it is not damaged at all; I am rear ranging it.” Probably roy lady readers will be as much surprised as I UChs, to Awl^tbat these costly shawls are purposely cut in pieces' and then sewn together again. The philoso phy of it is this: Some years the fashion is lor white figures, running about in scrolls as in cashmeres, and sometimes for black. Hence shawls with white ground figures are cut when black sell best, and the black cuttings sewn iu. Sometimes, when a lot of shawls have been lor many years on hand, the dis position of the figures are changed in order to suit the prevaibng taste. Now, the work wa* doue so well that I could not distinguish the earns, but it seems to me that if I were to buy a shawl worth a thousand dollars, I should greatly prefer to have It as it came from the Indian loom. I was told that hung dreds of these rearranged shawls are annually sold to Ametican ladies at very large prices, and if those who have them find that they come in pieces they will understand the rea son. They have only to send the shawl to some racommodeuse, like the person of whom I write, and the work will be elegant ly done again. This industrious artist and his no less industrious wife earn a very hand some living from their common labor. Bboncho Teams.—At one of the stations I noticed one of the mules in our new team was blindfolded, and that three men had firm hold of the others until all was ready and the driver gave the signal; then tne men stepped aside and drew off the blinds and the team started. This I found was no uncommon occurrence, for many of the mules used on the road are so untame and vicious that often it is as much as three or four men can do to attach them to the stage and keep them still till the signal for starting is given. They are tough, wiry creatures, and are usually called “bronchos.” When once start ed, the driver guides them with wonderful skill, and never stops to rest or water until he reaches the next station, howevei distant. There is one great p,easure in riding with such a vicious team. You are never afiaid the driver will kill bis animals by hard driv ing. You rather wish he would. When stand ing they start and are off at the least rattle or sound that can be construed as an excuse. I once saw such a team start from a post office, make a wide sweep on the prairie, come back to the spot and stop, eight times, before the postmaster could succeed in put ting the mail safely aboard. And yet I have seldom heard of any casualty resulting from the use of these “broncho” teams. This ab sence of casualties must be owing to the gen erally level surface of the country, and the great practical knowledge of the driver. The station bouses along the route struck me as lonely places, and not a littl dangerous. At “Kickapoo Springs,” twenty-eight milee from Fort Concho, I asked the keeper how far he was from any neighbor, and he said twenty miles on one side and eleven on the other. This, his nearest neighbor was at “Lipon Springs,” the only water between Kickapoo Station and the Concho River. [Texas Letter.
