FOR AMATEUR AUTHORS.
Hints to Newspaper Writers Which Will Please the Editors. First be sure that you havo nothing to say, and then sit down and say it. Don’t bother about ideas, or about sense, if you haven’t any. Make up for the absence of both by grandilo quent words and many of them, especially if you are writing for space. Enlarge upon your topio; it shows fer tility, to ensmall upon it indicates paucity. Write on paper foolscap size, or on wall paper if it is more handy. It creases so beautifully when you cram it into the envelope. Then, too, you will please the compositor; he likes tho sheet of MS. to cover his "upper case;” indeed, the more it covers the better he likes it. He shows his de light by his well-sustained profanity. Use pale blue ink and don’t aim at legibility. The editor is fond of deciphering hieroglyphics. It is likely that he’ll guess at a far better word than the one you really used. If you have no blue ink, black ink that has been frozen and thawed out three or four times will do as well. When your article is finished don’t revise it. Above all don’t pnlTO it; that might strengthen it, but it will also shorten it, and quantity goes far ther than quality. Show it to friends who are incom petent to judge of its merits. If they praise it then it is ready to fire at the editor. If you show it to a competent friend lie’ll hesitate to tell you, out of regard for your feelings, that it is “rot” and that you are not called to write. You 6ee, if he tells you the truth you’ll not send tho MS.; the editor will be de prived of the pleasure of declining it, and you of the delight of getting it back or of thinking kindly of the editor for years because he kept it and the stamps you sent him. You needn t send sufficient stamps for the return of your MS. It can’t be explained why it is so, but it costs less postage from him to you than it does from you to him. Anyhow, the aver age literary tyro seems to think that it does. If your article Is excessively funny send it to the Homiletic Monthly. If it is excessively dull and heavy send it to Puck. If it is on theology send it to the Scientific American; if on scienoe, to the Christian at Work. There’s a great deal in sending the article to the journal for which it isn’t at all adapted. Wait at least two days before you write to inquire why you haven’t heard about the article. If you live near the publication of fice don’t send your M>S., but take it yourself. Read it to the editor; read it boisterously, so that others within hearing may enjoy it. They may doubt the massiveness of your brain, but not the capacity of your lungs. Get into the editor’s lap, if possible; walk all over him, figuratively speak ing. He enjoys such visitors hugely; the disappointment of his life is that they do not come in squadrons. Should the editor, through dementia or the idiotic fortuity of circumstances, accept your article, send him another right off. In fact, keep sending them. Load them in a Gatling gun. Make a target of him. Other writers have no business to expect a hearing. They ought to fall back upon a more ple beian calling.—Epoch. AFRICAN CANNIBALS. They Discuss the Propriety of Eating an Explorer and His Party. Though the Congo region is the Aome of most of the cannibals of Africa, some tribes of man-eaters may be found much nearer the sea than in ,the Congo country. Along the delta region of the Niger, emptying into the Bight of Biafra, are some of the worst cannibals in the world. Unlike many of the Congo cannibals, who have proved themselves by their arts and tribal governments to be among the most advanced of 6avage peoples, the cannibals living near the Gulf of Guinea are among the most degraded of human beings. Mr. H. H. Johnson, the British Consul at Cameroon, recently made a trip up the Cross river, which empties into the Gulf of Guinea, about one hundred and eighty miles east of the main branch of the Niger. Mr. John son is well-known by his geographical work on the Congo and his book on Mount Kilima-Njaro. He had not ascended the river more than fifty miles before the people he met began to be very wild and excitable. In a communication just published in the Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society, Mr. Johnson says the people are inveterate cannibals. They are continually fighting with each other in order to supply their larders with fresh food. In one hut which he en tered a smoked human ham was hang ing from the smoke-blackened rafters, and above a hundred skulls were ranged round the upper part of the clay walls. One old chief who wished to convince Johnston of his very friendly feeling took a necklace from his neck and presented it to the white man. The ornament was made from human knuckle bones. At one point on the river, where the traveler was received with great ap parent friendship, he learned that the natives were debating the question whether to treat the visitors as hon ored guests or to eat them, or at any rate to eat the Kroo boys who had paddled Mr. Johnson up the river. He decided that it would not be safe to extend his explorations further, and he started down the river while the J natives were still debating what to do with him. As h« turned his canoe down stream, however, the noisy vil lagers gave chase, and there were a few minutes of terrible anxiety when the canoe ran aground, and hundreds of the yelling savages attempted to wade across the shallow water and seize the fugitives. Even little chil dren, Johnson 6ays, armed them selves with knives, and, standing ankle deep in the water, shrieked at the top of their voices that they would like to eat the white man. The ex plorer, however, managed to keep out of the clutches of the savages, and to get away without firing. The cannibal tribes near the Niger delta, in Angola and in the Congo basin, are probably the only natives of Africa who habitually eat human flesh. Some tribes in East Africa, however, indulge in cannibal practices during religious exercises, and they also sometimes eat the bodies of enemies slain in battle. They believe that they are thus imbued with the virtues of the victim.—N. Y. Sun. NEWSPAPERS *AND HO TELS. A Philosophical Treatise on Food, Intel lectual and Otherwise. There are not only many men of many minds, but there is also a diver sity of stomachs, hence it requires a rare combination of qualifications to successfully manage either a first class journal or a first class hotel. Under these circumstances it is strange that there is hardly one man in a thousand who doubts his ability to make a suc cess of either of these intricate insti tutions. The average American lawyer, preacher, street-car driver, or what ever else he may have been, after hav ing been driven into the very earth by the sledge hammer of adversity, will wink knowingly at the nearest specta tor and say: “I recken I’ll have to bo come an editor or a hotel keeper as soon as I ean borrow a pair of crutches to get out on.” What is the result? This country is infested with alleged newspapers, that will never be fit for waste paper until they have been im proved two thousand per cent, edit orially and typographically. The American people are being hurried along to the tomb by indigestion and a thousand kindred ills that may be attributed to the treatment they re ceive at hotels, and the mental and physical disquietude that comes from being starved by day and bled and flayed alive by insects at nigh t. However, the working of the ancient principle of the survival of the fittest is gradually eliminating from journal ism inferior intellects and they natu rally drift into the halls of Congress or legislative assemblies. As to what becomes of the public enemies who fail in their efforts to de populate the earth by keeping alleged hotels, wo are unable to reply with any degree of certainty, but it is our impression that they keep up the as saults on mankind under the guise of practicing medicine. It must have frequently occurred to the man of a reflective turn of mind, who thought fully observes the antics of his fellow worms, that there is, comparing great things with small ones, a good deal of similarity between journals and hotels. Both are indispensable to civilized man. Man, as some of our readers may know from personal experience, is endowed by Heaven with an empty stomach, which vociferously demands several square meals daily, and scorn fully rejects all efforts to compromise the matter. Man is also blessed with an un quenchable frenzy to know every thing possible to be known about the affairs of his neighbor and of the neighbor of every body else. The latter want is supplied by the press, that always keeps the public posted about what happens, hence it would appear that the men who supply their fellow men with good newspapers and good hotel accommodotions are the greatest bene factors of the human race.—Texas Siftings. Fate of the Wjld Pigeon. The fate of the wild pigeon is under discussion, and a very widespread opinion appears to prevail that be cause these birds are not seen in many sections where they abounded they have disappeared from this continent. It is probable that this hypothesis can be pi'oved an unsound one, and the wild pigeon may still be found in scat tered flocks in the Far West, their flight and nestling grounds changing with the fluctuations of the mast sup ply on which they depend for food. Such flocks have been reported within a few years, and since that time there has been no event which might be ac cepted as an adequate explanation of their extinction. The fact remains that the wild pigeon has not held its own, nor stemmed the current of set tlement and civilization which has swept it from the great areas where its hosts once darkened the heavens - Forest and Stream. —A Washington lady was canning and pickling peaches, and her little two-and-a-half-year-old daughter was endeavoring to assist her in every available way. Finally a package of whole cloves was produced which were to be inserted in the fruit for spice, when the little one suddenly ex claimed: “O, mamma, let me put in the tacks!” —■■ —Mrs. Pompano—“Mary Ann, just run across tho 6treet and ask that man with a white-wash bucket if he is en gaged.” Mary Ann (returning after an animated conversation with Julius Plumbob)—“Please mum, he says he's been married for twelve years.”— Drake') Mag (aim. I THE ALUMINUM AGE. X Pleasant Word Picture Drawn by an En thusiastic Chicago Man. It is reported that at the Essen Krupp Gun Works, near Cologne,Germany,the metal aluminum is being rapidly turned out in 100-pound ingots at a cost of 25 cents per pound. If this is truo its full significance is not realized by the public, for this silvery metal is the most abundant in nature. Common clay everywhere contains from two to ten pounds of it in every 100 pounds. It is therefore more common than iron or all the metals taken together. The cost of extracting it has been the great and only hindrance to its general use. In 1853 its value was $240 per pound, and the following year a chemical dis covery dropped its price to $44. A steady decrease since then has taken place to about $5 per pound, at which price its uses are enormous, but noth ing to compare with the alleged 25 cent value. As iron weighs three times as much, and is, therefore, one-third as bulky as aluminum, when the latter can be obtained at three times the price of iron that metal will be supplanted rap idly. Even at the Krupp price it will pay to build railroad trains of alumi num, because of the greatly reduced weight afforded. This dead weight of trains is a prodigious expense to rail ways, nine-tenths of which could bo saved by constructing passenger and freight cars of aluminum weighing from half a ton to a ton each. The adaptability for this purpose may be instantly seen in roughly stating alum inum to bo far stronger than steel and as light as chalk. Locomotives need ing traction weight would still be made of iron and steel, though they could bo reduced in weight materially in proportion to the diminished dead weight, or the old en gine unchanged would be enabled to add ten aluminum ears for each one of the old style discarded. It would be equivalent to doubling the freighting capacity by counting the weight of present cars and their contents as equal in reducing the car weight to a practical zero. Aluminum conducts electricity bet ter than iron, the compai'ison being one-third as well as copper while iron is one-seventh, hence aluminum will be used for telegraph lines. The met al being so light and sti’Ong, inch rods of it will hold up the wires as well as the largest telegraph poles under gi’eatly rcdxiced weight. Houses could be easily constructed by pouring the metal into sand or or dinary metal molds. It melts easier than silver. Every part of xhe domi cile could be cast on the spot in this way into a solid mass of metal more rigid and durable than stone. Movable parts such as doors, windows, tran soms, scuttles, could be made of the same bright metal aud just as heavy or light as desiied. Ships larger than the Great Eastern, with less draught, could be construct ed nearly exitii’ely of aluminum, in cluding the machinery and boilers, which at present weigh down vessels seriously. The stone age held fast our ancest ors in a condition but little better than that of our arboreal pi'ogenitors, the apes; the bi’onze age was a great step ahead, and the iron age ushered in civilization and made it possible. We are now living in the latter part of that period and beholding the dawn of the aluminum age, which will confer blessings millions of times greater than can be understood un der existing circumstances. The possibilities of cheap aluminum are limitless. .5£rial navigation will be effectually settled, and monstrous aluminum air-ships will literally give wings to commerce and settle the tariff question by rendering trade as free as the medium in which it will be con ducted. Cities of solid aluminum will spring up everywhere, fire-proof, in destructible, paved with the white metal, lighted by electricity passing over aluminum wires to towers of the same substance. Railway beds, sleep ers, ties, rails, bridges and all will be cast solidly in their places, with airy aluminum palace-cars dancing over them one hundred miles an hour or more. Floating bridges can be built upon the seas; wide rivers can be spanned by cobwebby but strong structures at small expense, and in a few days where years were previously required. Sanitation will become a great possibility, and every one, no matter how poor, can have a home of his own far better than the present ordinary dwelling. Transition stages such as this in volve rapid and decided changes from past modes of living, and, like all other civilizing influences, aluminum will prove to be a great leveler, for wealth will decrease in the hands of the few and increase in those of the many. Old-time manufacturing pro cesses will be killed off and thousands lose employment, to be re-employed in new industries or adaptations of the old to the new. Carpentering, cabinet making will give way to fabricating furniture, wagons, carriages, etc., from the new metal, with the result of cheapening all the implements and vehicles of life, and secondarily all products, such as clothing, shelter and food. Great wealth will lose its powc-r and poverty be practically abolished —Theo.Dolitc, in Chicago Tribune. - ^ -— —Wife (to husband, who has been ostensibly to church)—“I was sorry not to go with you this morning. John, but I really didn't feel able. Were there many there?” Husband—“No, the grandstand was only about half— er— O, yes, a fair congregation for hot weather.”—*V. Y. Sun. > 1 —Experts claim seasickness can be regulated by a system of breathing. One must sit still and breathe regu larly and freely according to a fixed plan: Time your breathing to the up ward and downward motion of the boat. As the boat falls there should be a full expiration, and as the boat begins to rise start on an inspiration, ending just as the boat starts to drop. It is an easy plan to follow and will make you laugh at the idea of being sick, unless you have a stomach so weak as to be affected by the swaying of an elevated train or boat on a short and smooth ferry. —No other nation boasts of so many grades and varieties of sweetmeats as the Chinese. Over ninety varieties of sugar-cured fruits are on their bill of fare, the most valuable of these being their preserved gingers and aprico ts. How to Overcome the Dangers of Exposure. Francis O’Reilly, the well-known livery man of No. 18 Prince street, New York, says of Allcock’s Porous Plasters: “ For the last forty-two years I have been engaged in the livery and hacking busi ness. 1 am greatly aided by my four boys. V.*e aro much exposed to the weather, and we have found Allcock’s Plasters of very great service. We use them as chest protectors, placing ono on the chest and one on the pit of the stomach. They not only ward off the cold, but act as a tonic. We are frequently affected with rheuma tism, kinks in the back, and pains iu the side; but one or two of Allcock’s Plas ters quickly cure us. My wife and daugh ter have been using Allcock’s Plasters for weak back and think the world of them. I have now been using them for twenty years, and always have a box in the house."

But do not use the dangerous Alkali and Mercurial preparations which destroy your nervous system and ruin the digestive pow er of the stomach. The Vegetable King dom gives us the best and safest remedial agencies. Dr. Sherman devoted thegrea'er part of his life to the discovery of this relia ble and safe remedy, and all its ingredients are vegetable. He gave it the name of Prickly Ash Sifters! a name every one can remember, and to the present day nothing has been discovered that is so beneficial for the Blood, for the Liver, for the Kidneys and tor the Stomach. This remedy is now so well and favorably known by all who have used it that argument as to its merits is useless, and if others who require a corrective to the system would but give it a trial the health of this coun try would be vastly improved.
