Kailroad companies are interested
in the subject of ties. The scarcity of
timber for the purpose has raised a ques

What a Yoang Girl Accomplished.
The safe arrival of the ship Tem
plar," at San Francisco, after a direful
voyage, was due to tho brave conduct
and unfaltering devotion of Miss Arm-
fitlYincr rlntinrlitor nf trm l7iTtiit, Wttnn
off the Rio de la Plata the mate was re
lieved for insubordination. About the
same time Captain Armstrong was
obliged to take to his bed again, leaving
the ship in command of the second of
ficer. The second officer was a good
seaman, but not a navigator, and Miss
Armstrong offered to navigate the ship
if he would take the observations. This
was done the second mate, taking the
sun, hurried below with his sextant, and
Miss Armstrong, weak and debilitated
as she was, worked up the latitude and
longitude, doubled Cape Horn, and
finally brought the ship in safety to the
FaraDones. Captain Armstrong ac
knowledges that if it had not been for
his daughter's indomitable will and per
severance the "Templar" would Jiever
have reached the Golden Gate.

MHshroomg and Toadstools.
I can not too strongly warn persons
from simply meddlinr with funin. It is
death, sure death, to those not familiar
with the varieties that fill our woods to
do so. Let a stranger pick the first
dozen mushrooms he sees and eat them.
and he is just as sure to die from their
effects as if he dranlc a glassful of the
contents of a dozen unknown comnounds
from the apothecary's shelf. There is
one family to which all or nearly all of
me iaiat cases are one. i nave found
ten varieties of this mushroom in the
vicinity of Boston. They have the fol
lowing marks, by which any person may
know them: The base of the stem,
close to the soil, has a white wrapper
around it, from which the plant seems
to grow. About two-thirds the length
of the stem from the ground is a similar
membrane in the form of a veil or rag
ged ring, encircling the stem. On the
top of the toadstool is a scurf or irregu
lar collection of warts. These are quite
defined in the young plant, apt to be
worn off in older specimens. But the
frills nnil ctpmc nt fllnrnra nnra ivliitn
drab, golden, red or greenish, soft and
sticky when moist. The most common
has a yellow spot in the center, shading
gradually to pure white. The'three
iiiarss wrapping, ring ana scurry lop
must exist together, and they then de
note the sub-genus Amanita. Thisxact
scriptiouisby no means complete; e but
analysis would not be in place here, ,
whfle persons will eat mushrooms with
out properly knowing them, an.effort to
simplify this science must be made.
Wiui ordinary care wo may recognize
twenty common edible mushrooms with
out danger of fatal error, and at the
same time learn to avoid those which
contain a subtle alkaloid, not to be de
tected by smell or taste, yet surer than
arsenic in its fatal consequences to hu
man life. Julius A. Palmer, Jr., in
Save by His Strength.
It is often remarked that personal
strength has ceased to be of much acr
count on battle-fields and this is main
ly true where both contending parties
are civilized armies. But here is an ex
ception in modern warfare, which re
minds us of Homer's battles :
The late Gen. Donovan, known to al
most every one, some years back, in the
city of Cape Town, etc., as the man with
the lion's voice, for many years com
manded that famous corps, the Cape
Mounted Kitles. As an evidence of tne
strength of his lungs, it is stated that he
could drill his regiment with perfect
case at a quarter of a mile off. He was,
at the time of the first Kaffir war, a
Captain commanding a troop in the
above-named regiment. He was over
six feet in height, perfectly propor
tioned, and posessed of muscular
strength rarely given to human being.
Scarce knowing what fear meanta con
summate horseman, well skilled with his
weapons, he invariably defeated the
enemy whenever they had an encounter,
himself coming off scatheless, so that he
got to be regarded by the natives sis
bearing a charmed life. The Kaffirs,
then as now, fought with address and
determination, and were peculiarly cruel
to their captured. If not immediately
and humanely slain by the deadly asse
gai, they were usually reserved for the
torture of being flayed alive, after suffer
ing nameless indignities. The Kaffirs,
particularly the Zulus, made a vow that,
if ever the "devil captain," as they
called Donovan, or what was equivalent
in their guttcrals, fell into their hands,
his fate would be worse than any that
had preceded him, and he knew they
were men of their word. In one of the
fights that took place in the up-country,
the Captain's luck seemed to have de
serted him. He and his command lull
into an ambush in a gully between two
rifts of hills common in that country.
His men were almost all cither killed or
wounded, his horse shot from under
him, saber broken, and pistols empty.
He apparently was at the enemy's mercy.
Donovan knew that small mercv would
be accorded him, and as two Zulu chiefs,
famed for their strength and bravery,
advanced to capture him aliv e, he seized
one literally in each hand, and with his
enormous strength doubled by the des
pair of the moment, brought their heads
together with a deadly crash. One of
his wounded men afterwards said that it
was like the sound of broken bottles. -One
chief was killed outright, and the'
other so maimed that he lived but a day
or two. The rest of the band fled with
terror, now thoroughly convinced that
he was not a man, nut a demon. The
survivors and the dead, chiefs were
shortly after brought in by reinforce
ments of the regiment. Donovan was
hardly ever again opposed during the
continuenco of the war.
