Burdick, who died re cently in a poorhouse in Hichigan, having said on his death-b ?d that he was one of the piratical crew that captured axessel named the Patriot, and par ticipated in the murder of Theodosia Allston at sea; indeed, he declared that it fell to his lot to pull the plank from under her. She came forth ar rayed in white, hold'ng a Bible ia one hand, and with heroic mien took her place on the slender instrument of dea;h, and without a shudder Gr quiver of a muscle wa3 ,x ..capitated into the waves. The noble, unblanched face, erect and airy form, he said, had haunted him all Iiis subsequent life. Bravo Women. A life-saving crew off the coast of Wales recently had their boa. smashed by being dashed against the bark they went out to rescue. The coxswain succeeded in gaining the shore, and turning saw two men struggling in the surf." "He implored three soldiers stand ing.by fej help the men. They gave no assistance and 1 e cried to them : "Save the rifen ;"or shame ! Don't let the men drown before your eyes." But two bravo women rushed forward the daughters of Mr. Ace, the lighthouse-keeper. "Come back I Come -jack ! You'll lose jour lives 1" shouted Ace. "I'll lose my life before I'll let these men drown," was Maggie's answer; and tearing off their shawls the women knotted them together, and wading into the furious surf until the sweil of the surges sometimes rose to the height of their armpits, and one holding bravely to the other to support themselves against the tearing recoil of the sweep ing wat r, they threw the end of their shawls toward the outstretched arms of the perishing men and dragged them both on to th rocks. The men saved were about three yards from shore. The soldiers threw something into the water resembling a clothesline, but thtydid not go near enough to allow the line to rea?h the men. Military ibravery is not the only kind of cour tage. News and Notes for Women . . An academy of pharmacy, for the instruction of women in the profession iof apothecaries, has bean opened in Louisville, Kv. Miss Jennie Thomason, of Union 'county, Pa., is five feet high, and her air is five feet eight inches in length and as black as a coal. It is estimated that as many as four thousand women are actually caught jstealing from the shops in Paris, an in credibly Jarge proportion being titled ladies. A Cleveland doctor says that the use -of arsenic by women to produce plump ness of face and beauty of complexion ds increasing. The use of the drug is 'very injurious. At a german in Memphis, six doves were placed in each of the six large center cakes, and when the cakes were cut the birch Hew out and perched on .the window cornices and mantels. ' A Gateshead (England) engineer ling firm employing 1,200 men has all the copying of its drafts and plans done by young women, who do the 'work much better than when it was done by men. A woman in Kingston, 2sTew Mexico, .has built for her family a log cabin. sShe out the trees, hauled the logs and made the shingles for the roof. Her thrifty husband stayed at home, mean while, and tended the children. One bt "the. substantial farmers of Sparta, Qa., when he was married, .twelve years ago, had to borrow men y to pay for his marriage license, and, not having a decent suit of clothes, the young woman whom he was to marry t'jre the wool from sheepskins, spun, wove and made him a suit of .clothes. A dress composed entirely of feath ers was worn by a Kuss an princess at a recent ball at .Nice, and the feathers were peacDCk's. The looking was held by the proud birds' hea s, the eyes fyeing ga nets. It is declared by those who profes-; to know all about these things that it is the only dress of the kind ever made. The "Washington correspondent of the Boston Traveler, referring to Patti's recent engagement in the cap ital, says: Patti, by the way, is among the most superstitious of moitals. She will not sign any contrast or begin any new undertaking on Friday. She wiil not live at a hotel in a room number ing thirteen or any multiple thereof. She wears numerous charms, and be lieves in every superstition she has ever heard anything about. It is said that when Mr. Mapleson does not care to pay the sum required for her single appearance ($,400) he has some one open a parasol in Patti's room, and then the business is done. Fashion Notes The newest parasols are in mrge sizes. " Cashmere shawls never go out of vogue. New English straws come in every shade of color. Classic and aesthetic styles still pre vail in London, Yelvet basques grow more and more In popular favor. The small poke-shape is to be most worn this summer. . Parisian women wear only small 'crinolets and bustles. The new muslins are soft-finished without any starcfror size. Egyptian red cloth havelocks are the favorite wraps for HJ-tle girls. Nun's veiling will continue a stand ard material for. summer wear. New millinery goods are very bright with color and metallic effects. Ashes of roses has made its appear ance among the aesthetic colors. "Velvet waistcoats let into the front of silk and wool basques are a feature in-new suits. The long nurse apron front, with paniers above it around the hips, is a favorite style. The round braided pieces so much uStd as trimming for cloth suits are called macaroons. Clasps on the collars and in the r.eck p dresses take the place of brooches and lace pins. One of the loveliest dresses for mid summer is of white veiling, closely dotted with silk brocade dots. Orange and llamo colors in vanish ing effects are seen in many of the new silks and novelty goods. Loops and ends of narrow ribbons will be a favorite trimming for watering-place dresses this summer. New mulls and silk muslins are dotted and figured in silk broche spotBv dots, diamonds, flowers and leaves. Jackets of velvet of the new royal French blue will be worn, trimmed with 'gold soutacue and small gilt but tons. Scarfs of plush with ends elaborately embroidered are hung around marble clocks on mantels where no lambrequin is used with a very good effect. A high novelty is a fine wool and silk stuff called dream fabnc, in which the figures are wown in such a man ner as to produce a vanishing effect. Scarf tunics braided with silver or gold are passed around the hips and Knotted behind on the kiit skirts that are on wool dresses. Several rows of the braid ara sewed around the kilt plaits nearly at the bottom. Ladies who have lin arms wear the pretty si eves that are drawn up two inches shorter in the outside than their inside1 seam ; these are for day dresses; acfc sleeves, or no sleeves whatever, are worn with evening toilets, but the long gloves for full dress conceal the tapering beauty of the arm below the ulbw. A mixture of dull brown and elec tric blue is effective in the thick dro guet or wool damask of which red mgotes, coats, ba ques and tunics are made. The skirt of velvet made ab solutely plain may be brown, red or blue, of t.ie shade most conspicuous in the droguet, and the large buttons are of wrought metal, bronze, steel or gilt. A stylish house dress is made of dark Russiaa gray cashmere. The skirt is laid all the way down in hollow plaits devoid cf trimming. Tue bodice is pointed, front and back, the paniers are arranged in heavy plaits, rounding over the hips and joining the lightly puffed drapery in the back. The fronts of the bodice, the edg. s of the paniers, and half the length of the long, clcs2 sleeves are trimmed with an elaborate pattern in braidwork. A charming costume for a. young brunette has a plaited skirt of brown or orange striped terry velvet, with yellow stripes laid on the under side of the plaits. The bodice and tunic are of brown camel's-hair braided with rows of dull gjld braid. The bonnet to wear with this dress has a kid crown with brim of brown chenille woven vrV.h gold cord. The strings are brown velvet ribl on, and a brown bird with a yellow head is apparently clinging to the left side. How Judge Davis Won a Race. A correspondent ssnds the New Yore Evening Post the following story: "The genial old senator ( David Davis) who is now enjoying his honeymoon takes the jokes of his friends in such good humor that he will excuse me for tolling a story that I heard narrated of him in Washington. It goes that while he was dining one day at "Worinley's with some friends, among whom was Mr. Evarts, the conversa tion drifted to athletic sports and foot-races. Mr. Evarts, with a view to one of his sarcastic jests, turted to the great 'trunk alongside of him, from which he himself may be supposed to have been whittled off as a sliver, and suggested that suh sports were some thing entirely out of his line. '"Well Evarts,' replied Judge Davis, perhaps you think I can't run? Now, look here, r 11 1 o. you a Gase of wine I can b?at you in a hundred yards if you will let me choose my ground and will give me five yards start. I'm heavy you know, and I want solid footing.' Mr. Evarts was satisfied that he had a dead sure thing,' and as the evening hud advanced the dign:fid company resolved to uibend itself still further for thespoi t. Come on, then,' shouted the senator, 'follow me!' So away they went, down to a narrow alley that runs between Twelftn and Thir teenth streets. Marching into it for the distance of five yards, while his artnr touched the brickwork on each side, he quietly observed: 'Now Evarts, get in bahind m?, and take your time. I am going to take mineP " A LoYdy Little Seed. A friend has kindly sent to us what appears to be a seed of some kind, and which possesses characteristics of a pe culiar interesting nature.1 This seed held in the hand or placed on a book or table appears to be endowed with life, and at once proceeds to move about, tumble over, and jump from one side to the other. Held between the fingers, a distinct, intermitting throb is felt proceeding from the interior; and when placed close to the ear, this throb or knocking becomes audible, and as many as sixty distinct knooks have been heard in forty seconds. Tiie force of these mysterious blows- given in the interior is surprising; they jar the whole struct ure of the seed and knock it about in a lively way when placed in a free position. The development of a pro portional force inside of Barnum's ele phant Jumbo would render it. unsafe for any one to occupy a position very near him. The s'ze of the se3d is that of a fourth part of a pea divided longitud inally, and it almost ejcactly resembles sucha fragment of a dried pea. The donor of the seed states that it came from Mexico, and is called the Mexican bean. Doubtless others have seen this curious seed and can explain the causes of its strange antics, but we cannot. The force is not dependent upon heat or its absence, for it moves with eqiud facility upon the surface of dry ice and a warm plate; neither has the presence of moisture anything to do with it, and light or darkness is not a disturbing agent. Boston Journal of Chemistry, Selecting a Snccessor. The e'ergymau of the "Wearesville (Penn.) Mtnnonite church died soms time since, and the congregation se lected his successor by chance in the following manner : The names or. the candidates were announced and as many books as there are candidates wvre placed in a row. One of these I o des contained a slip ot paper, and the candidate who drew itjwas the selected preach r. TOBSL TOPICS. The Chinee-American, the new Chinese paper, puts the number of Chinese in New York at 9,000. Two years ago, when the census was taken, the number was 1,030, and the increase is how more rapid than it has ever been before. Several hundred of these New York Chinamen are members of churches, principally of the Baptist order. A large number have married Irish or German women, and quite a number have become naturalized citizens. Postmaster-General Ho wo has under consideration a plan for the issuing of an entirelv new svstem of stamns of i different colors from those now in ! use. Assistant Postmaster-General Hatton ha3 tljp matter in charge I and will report at an early date upon j the niw d signs which have been sub mitted for liis approval. The, new I series will probably be issued before uctooer J, wnen the reduction in the rate of postage goes into eff.ct accord ing to the laws passed at the last ses- ! sion of Congress. Ephriam Suroggs, of Fallstown, Tenn., boasts that he has now burning on his hearth the same fire which he starti d when he went to housekeeping fifty years ago. Prom the day that fire was started to this it has never been permitted to go out. Summer and winter of these fifty years it has been replenished as occasion requires. TTrom a roaring heap it has dropped many a time to a bed of smoldering coals, but it has never been permittel to turn intJ ashes The tax on matches ha. never troubled S:roggs. Terrible stories aro told by a corre- , spondent of the San Francisco Chroni cle of the spread of leprosy in the Hawaiian Islands. There is almost a panic on these islands, and so malig- nant is the disease that a healthy per , son will contract it from . clothes washed by a person atHictel. There is no cure for leprosy. It is a living death tortured by innumerable sores. ! The ChronhU ccoes the length of hint ing that the d sea?.e may even be car ried in sugar packages, and calls for interference on the part of the Unite! States authorit'es. The coffee blight seems to be tra versing the globe. It has spread from Csylon and the Fiji islands to Brazil, where the hss is already so serious that the minister of agriculture is making every effort to discover a means of stonninc it. The product of one of the 1 irgest plantations, which ia tne past nas reguiariy oe n more than 200 tons annually, has fallen to an insignificant amount. One theory attributes the blight to minute para sites at the root of the plant ; another to exhaustion of the soil through neglect. Something concerning the nature of the safeguards thrown around cliildren who are employed in the industries of France may be gathered from notices printed in Le Journal Officiel. They may not be employed in any factory whtre large quantities of dust or in jurious vapor are producc-d. nor on any work on the roofs of houses or where there Avould 1)9 risk of injury from falls. Boys im ler sixteen years of age and girls under eighteen are not al lowed to be employed in rag-picking and sorting, except in well-ventilated apartments. There are restrictions as to the weight of loads that children may wheel in trucks through streets or factory yards. Taking a range of comparison as long as fourteen years, or from liQS to 188, the progress in industrial arts made by t!ie Indians makes a very fair showing In 18CS th re were but 5,207 acres of Ian 1 cultivated by the nation's wards, and in 182 there w re 569,932 acr s or an increase of ab ut 906 per cent. In the quantiti s of wheat, corn, oats, barley, vegetables and hay laised there is likt w e a corresponding in crease. The number of hordes and mules owned has in-reased from 43 960 to 244,629, and of cattle from 42, 874 to 549,932. But the greatest in crease has been in sheep, of which in 1868 there were but 2,6S7, against 1,OA.710 in 1832. Near Macon, Mis-, is a remarkaVe pigeon roost. It embraces an area of forty acres, in a vaHey s.vr rounded by precipitous hills. A creek spreads over t, covering most of the surface with water from one to five feet deep. There is all over it a thick growth of cane, vines, bushes and saplings, which, with the quicksands, muck and water, constitute it an absolutely impenetra ble morass. It is a wonderful instinct that prompted the I irds to select this, the most secure and safest of all placts in the whole region, for their lodging house. Between sunset and dark pigeons come in from all quarters in immense numbers, darkening the heavens and producing a roaring noise that can be heard two or three miles. Comptroller Knox says that the pass age of the act to redu 'e internal reve nue taxation relieves the national and state banks and the private bankers from a tax on the average of about 1,000,000 a month. The amount of tax collected from the national banks on capital and deposits during the last fiscal year was $5,959,702, of which $437,774 only was upon capital, the re mainder being upon deposits. The tax upon state banks and private bankers was $5,249,172, of which a little more than one-fifth was upon capital. The total tax collected upon deposits and capital upon all classes of banks during the last fiscal year was $11,208,876. The amount annually collected from the two-cent check stamp is about $2,500,000, and the act repealing the use of these stamps takes effect on July 1, 1883. The Kev. Dr. Morgan Dix, of New York city, has no mercy on the mod ern woman. He arragns her upon four different charges lack of a serious view of life, degradation of the idea of matrimony, determination to avoid the care thereof, and want of maternal care in th3 education f children. Summing the modern woman up, he says she is made of heartlessness, sel fishness, flesh ami fraud. "It is evi dent, from the reverend doctors re marks and the tenor of bis argument," says a "Western exchange, "that he speoially refers to the Jo-called fash ionable woman; the woman who lives for society, whose goddess is dress, whose Bible the unwritten book of so cial etiquette. He cannot refer to the thousands of girls who work for their daily breadj or the wives who live to make home happy. And thank heaven, no matter how many there may be of the former-, the latter are largely in the majority;" "What industrial education 'doe is shown by its effects on the industry of lawmaking in the island of Burano, near Venice. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries ib Was cele brated as a seat for lace man ufacture, but it had lost all its prestige and the industry was nearly extinct in 1860. In recent years, how ever, by the exertions of philanthro pists and connoisseurs of art, a self 01 of laceraakers was established there, and the number grew from eight, in 1872, to upward of 320 in 1881. The same vigor and evidence of financial advantage frcm in truction in the art of designing as app'ied to lacHmaking are noticed at Bruges, where the man ufacture has been maintained since the sixteenth century. There lacemaking is tau-zht in the convent and parish schools, and the lawmakers of that city, numbering 4,000, are supplied with designs by a system which is con trolled by the government. It was Gail Hamilton, we believe, who devoted a whole book to demon strate the total depravity and useless ness of small boys, ancl particularly those who are blessed with older sis ters; and humorists and satirists have made the urchin of the family the sub ject of unlimited and inexhaustible ridicule and amusement. It is there fore with joy that younger brothers throughout the world will welcome an announcement of their ability and value, as illustrated by an incident which recently occurred at Williams port, Penn. A young lady living in that town was in the habit of carrying pins in her mouth, as girls always do, and swallowed one of them, which lodged crosswise in her throat. After the physicians had given up the case as hopeless, the young lady's little brother persuaded her to swallow a button, to which was attached a string. "When the button was shallowed, the boy jerked the string and dislodged the pin. The young woman's throat was some what torn, but not seriously injured. Now, let the small boy have the credit. Unexplored Australia still conla'ns prizes for enterprising travelers. The great central desert theory, and many other myths, have long been exploded, but an immense area of country re mains practically untrodden. In two colonies alone South Australia and "Western Australia there are upward of 800,000 square miles of which litt'e or nothing is known, and in the north ern peninsula of Queensland another 10,0C0 square miles remain unexplored. Mr. Christie Palmerston, a government surveyor, Iras just opened up the table lands between Herberton and the Queensland coast. He reports that this highly-favored region possesses a flora of incredible luxuriance, broad sheets of water falling over high basaltic precipice?, and the richest soil in Australia, and is inhabited by tribe j exhibiting characteristics whidi dis tinguish them from the other natives of Queensland. Some of them are said to reside in s Tub so dense that they have never seen open country. They are armed, not with spe irs, but with wooden swords reso ubling in slmpe the weapons which the Dyaks of Borneo carry in their heal-hunting expedi tions. The Amvrkaji Culticator has a per tinent editorial paragraph on the use of high-sounding scientific terms in the reports made for the inforn.a:im of farmers by the agricultural depart ment at Washington. " rici mtific men," it says, "frequently complain of a lack of support from the agricultural classes. The farmers appreciate practical in formation and are willing to pay for value received. Many scientists utterly fail in tl:eir ab lity to impart to the av rage reader tho res-ills ot their in vestigations, however vain iblefrom the laboratory standpoint. Thus the last report of the department of agricul ture contains this profound paragraph in its discussion of the disea es of do mestic animals: 'It ha I long be.-n noticed th it the microphyte found in infusions of old hay (Bacillus subtilis) was practically ind stingui liable from the gum of m ilignant anthrax (Bacil lus anthracis) as seen under the micro scope. The most appreciable distinc tion was that the rWdllus subtilis of old hay could be inoculated on the ani mal system without any evil result, while inoculation with the Bacillus anthracis produoed the deadly malig nant anthrax or malignant pustule. And yet the government is asked to print and distribute 800,000 copies of such matter for the benefit of the farming classes! "What advice has the department, for the farmer who cannot tell the difference between Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus anthracis? Shall he buy a microscope or a Latin dic tionary?" Strange Stones. In the s.md of the Ergent moun tains at Sarepta, Asiatic Bussia, are found some curious stones. They have round, cylindrical shaped forms and range in size from lumps smaller than walnuts to masses of mora than four teen inches in length and from two to seven inches in thickness. Each of the cylindrical stones which are often forked and root-like in appearance is found to contain a brown kernel with a white spot in the center. These sin gular formations have perplexed many persons, including Alexander Hum boldt, who, while declaring the stones to be of recent date, could not explain their origin. Alexander Becker now believes that he can with certainty as sert that they have been produced around the ro )ts of plants containing milky juice. Several such plants grow abundantly in the white sand. The long roots are lacerated by insects, and the milky fluid flows continually from the wounds, sticking the chalky sand firmly around the roots. In time the roots die and disappear, leaving, in the r places white often hollow ker nels, together with the djrcwa color of the root-cortex. The round and target shaped stones only few of which have a brown kernel may have formed where the miiky fluid ran away into the sand. X Toothsome Morsel. This from the Madison ( Wis.) Dem ocrat, conveys its own moral : Hold on ! "We are cognizant of the fact that an aching tpoth was last night cured by the application of Sti Jacobs Oil. The young fellow .got mad over his fagihg tooth in the ball room, and rushed straightway to a drug store where he applied the good old German Remedy ; in ten minutes the toothache had gone.
