Tho Commercial Appeal voices the sentiment ot The Times, anil touches upon a most important matter in tho following eloquent appeal to tho citizens of Memphis to plant flowers, vinos, etc., for the beautifying of tho city and the ole vation of the people. We hope every reader of Tho Times will read, and act accordingly: Tho time is now upon ys when; people should devote so. e time and labor to beautifying the city, and this can bo done best by each housekeeper constituting himsolf a committee of one to beautify his own home. This can be done fcnd should be dono. A few Cowers in tho front yard, bright, cheerful flowers that bloom and burst into chromatic splendors, will trans form the city into a thing of beauty. A few creepers or vinq^ morn ing glories, arbutus, wistaries, cy press vines, honeysuckle—Hilton’s “eglantine”—maderia or a score of others may bo planted to clothe and beautify what is naked and unsightly and can bo used to shade windows and porches and, at the same lime, convert bald and blis tering walls into things of beauty. Kvery one has noticed that a few vines can beautify even the hum ble cabin of a negro, and on tho authority of Lord Bacon “nothing is more pleasing to the eye than green grass kept finely shorn." Those who beautify their homes by planting and caring for flowers not only benefit themselves,- but others, because to look at Cowers is spiritualizing. Out of their puri ty, color and fragrance come many messages of liopo to the despondent, of charity to tho selfish, of gentle ness to the cruel, of sweetness to tho embittered, of tenderness to those grown callous, and of relig ious faith to tho scoffer and un belivor. The influence of beauty and purity is not denied and noth ing is purer or more beautiful than flowers. A Sure Thing.

Every seven days the blood, muscles and bones of a man of average si/.** loses two pounds of wornout tissue. This waste cannot be replenished and the health and strength ltept up without per fect digestion. V.’hen tlie stomach and digestive organs fail to perforin their functions, the strength lets down, health gives way, and disease sets up.

Editor Times —A9 there are quite ni number of our cith.ens at present inter ested in the question of levees, it would not be amiss, perhaps, to give a few facts considered in their connection, and some things that have a tendency to destroy sucli structures during a Hood. It is a general rule in the building Of embankments that the slope be on its base 1 1-3 times its perpendicular height. That is a iavee, fit) feet high would have a slope the base of which would extend 45 feet outward from a point 30 feet below the edge of the slope at the top of the levee. If a levee had a body 10 feet across and 30 feet high, it would have a distance of 100 feet through the base and 10 feet across the top. Each foot at a right angle outward from the edge at the top has a depression of 2-3 of a foot, 2 feet, 1 1-3 feet, and so on till the distance of 45 feet is reached, which gives a per pcrdicular height of 30 feet fioiu the terminus of tlie slops at the base. As w ater weighs 02 1 2 pounds to the cubic foot, it lias a downward pressure of its weight and a lateral pressure of one half of that amount; the downward vary ing. of course, as the depth. A volume of water 50 feet deep against a levee lias, for the first square of surface at a right angle outward, a downward pressure of 120 5 0 pounds, the second square foot 02 l 2 pounds; giving a difference of •ll 3-3 pounds increase for every square foot of surface outward. At a distance of 45 feet there is a downward pressure (on the slope of 42 lb~ 1 2 pounds and a lateral pressure of 21,003 1-4 pounds, making a total of 03,2SL 1 4 or nearly -2 tons. For a mile in the length of the levee there would he a combined pressure on the slope of nearly ICS 000 tons. Owing tw the great ease with which the molecules of water move among them selves and overcome the adhesion of the particles of earth by its pressure In all directions, a bank against which water rests soon becomes thoroughly saturated and the seepage of water and the slough mg of the hank are the inevitable results. Under the great pressure, the water soon cuts an outlet through the earth and rushes with a force that the ingenuity of man h is never been able to centre! sue cessruny. It not unfrequently happens that there are under ground openings of which no one knows until the water by itsoveitlow re veals the fact. These are caused doubt less in part by the water itself, and fre quently by burrowing aquatics such as crayfish and muskrats;the latter attacking levees mostly in stages of high water. The elfeet of the few e.gencies above enumerated as to their influence upon levees has been convincingly proven by the conditions along ttie Mississippi dur ing the last few weeks. ct. W. Christian, A Startling Test. To -ave a life, l)r. T. (i. Merritt, of No. Mehoopany, Pa., made a startling test resulting in a wonderful cure.
