I SELDOM, if ever, pick up a newspaper without seeing, among the first Items that arrest my at tention, tbe lecord of a terrible boiler explosion Very manv causes are assigned for this loss of life aud property. A great deal is said as to what should be done and what should not be done. Hut 1 scarce ly ever hear it said that the-e explosions are due to an accumulation of Scale in the Boiler, and yet eight out of ten instanc s that occur in our midst are un , doubtedly due to this cause. I Now. permit n o 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 United States, I exact no pay for its use un less it gives perfect satisfaction and fulfils all he claims I make for it. My preparation will remove Scale from any Boiler, no matter how dee • may be the inertisation, and at the same time it will prevent injury to the Boiler from anything which may be held in solution by the water contained .n*it. This article will absolutely prevent the formal ion of Scale if timely Intioduced. 'J he poW'er which lmjiimfnctore has been care fully tested by some of th*» ablest chemist s in the countr;, and its fitness to keep iron clean aud to pieserve it has been demonstrated by them in the most satisfactory manner. If you will send for my circular,with my terms and full particulars, or give me a call I think I will be able to convince the most sceptical that this comi>o sition will just'fv all I cl ini for it.

An Iowa school teacher has been discharg ed for the offence of kissing a female assistant.

Nothing is more beautifnl and inviting than perfect neatness. If we could ody impress upon mothers, and housewives in general, the Importance of placing food before their house hold in an attractive dress, as well as making it wholesome, we should feel well repaid for giving daily or weekly le< tures upon this sub ject. It is not costly dishes or their number that make a table look iuvitlng. but it con sists more iu the arrangement, with these lit tle indescribable touches which a woman of taste gives without knowing why or wherefor. It is these little things that make home at tractive, and stamp the character of men and women. There was a fellow in a certain neighbor hood in Arkansas who was swspected of sheep-stealing. At last a planter, riding •wougu ,uc »uvi», isnvmea trie suspected individual emerge :rom the woods, and after looking round lo see that no one was near, walk up to a flock of sheep and knock over the largest and lattest. At this moment the planter rode up, and confronting the thief, exclaimed, “now, sir, 1 have got you. You cannot get off, you are caught in the act.” “What act?” indignantly inquired the thief. “Why, sheep-stealing,” was the prompt re ply. “Sir, you had better mind how you charge a respectable American citizen with such a crime as sbeep-stealing,” replied the gentleman with the penchant for mutton. “Now will you deny that I saw you kill that sheep?” asked the planter. “No, sir,” was the answer; “I did kill it, and I'd do it again under the same ciicumstances; I'll kill any body’s sheep that bites me as I’m going peace ably along the road.” School-HIrl Fashions. Not fashions for school-girls, for no one ev er yet saw a fashion that school-girls would as a class accept. Lawless and defiant, .they re ject everything suitable in dress, and conglom erate for themselves all the pouf a and panniers aud bustles and sashes, ami then make each other believe that they are exactly toe tiling. If gypsy hats are worn by grown w .men. all the misses in the city adopt gypsy hats, but add an extra tip to the side, or an additional collection of roses to the front. II bows are worn in the hair, no young miss is willing to appear in less than three or four, and iu this one respect of extra ornament on the head the maid-servauts are not a whit behind the school-girls. In well-regulated families, where the moth er’s word is respected as a wise law, the daughters do not make of thtmselv.es carica tures, nor are they classed with the kind of which mention is now made.

In a school in this city, where many young lauies are pupils, it was noticed on one occasion re cently that out one of them had ou x h gi close necaed dress. Her taste was made lue subject of conversa ion, and the renly was “04. -4-a ^.1, „.J „ „ expose it.,, Whara pity a temporary di-fig uiement could no.be visited upon eve y x posed neck seen in the streets. Every form of catarrh is suffered by young g rls, and many times the seeds of consumption are laid by this habit? Another school fashion, now, is c nrt pos ter ou the face. Tiny liitle patches are piac d ou the I'orhead, the cheek, orebiu, to contrast well with the complexion. Yet it is scarcely probable that one of those who use it kuows where the custom originated, or by what class it is most affected. jiraceieis are another sjbnol-girl bobby,and the manufacturers of cheap jewelry must have them in view when they turn out the thousands of rubber, tortoi-e shell,wood, and galvanized gold hands, which are sold here aud elsewhere. Open sieeves and bracelets are as essential as low, round necks and lock ets and no sacrifice is deemed too great to possess a pair of these baubles. So all the scbool-girl world wear bracelets. The fashion of wearius veils is another school-girl whim ; or rath-r the distinctive way in which they are worn is. Whoever sees a young girl with a veil over more than hair her face. These eye-blinds are usually put on for beauty, and uot for use. for what use can a veil be to any one but ,o blind them ? Once they were comfortable to be tied about the head and neck in cold weather or on dusty days, but the shapes of the bonnets have ren dered a veil almost an impossibility, and the general adoption of the nubia leaves notbiug to be desired in cold weather. But he school girl of the period must have kid gloves aud three-inch veil and her yard of garniture for her neck, whether it rains or shines, ami the flounces on her dress must be as numerous as her mother's, or she won’t wear it. And there must be as elaborate a toilette for the daily scoool as for the church or reception out fit, aud as much observance of style as the time and means will admit. It is the extravagance of a style that bur lesques it, and mauy a time when young girls thins they are in the height ot fa-blon. they are merely sa .ires ot tui fashions they are wearing. But what Is the use to pioest or eveu to pretend to noticesncb de ec:s in dre « as school girls illustrate ? “Th« re :s ay reme dy.” say mothers, “for this state of tnings.” All the girls are alike in their styles of dress, and no single home can influence the many who attend the schools. “Girls will be girls,’ ’ says another (an originul remark when ap died to the other sex), and there’s tbeer.il of it. No, there isn’t the end of it. No one can tel) the result of such pernicious fashions and cus toms as school girls now follow. The Difference Between 7 and 8.

And yet toat dif ference has power over a man s whole tem per. convenience, aud dignity Thus at Buf lairf, my hoots were set out at night to be biacke'd.
