Gretohen tat wearily waiting for tier
father to come from the tavern in the
villnge. Many years of aunthine and I the
shadow bad passed lince her mother bad
kissed her, and then had crossed the
dork, silent river to a land of brightness,
joy and peace.
Gretchen was almost in despair, for
there was only a Btnall black loaf in the
cupboard, and she was often beaten when
Hans, her father, was angry.
Suddenly there was a timid knock at
the door.
' Come in," said Gretchon.
The door swung slowly open, and sv
en little women entered.
" We are cold and hungry," said the
eldest, "as we have come a long dis
tance ; we are very tired, and would like
to stay all night.'"
" x ou are very welcome," replied
Gretohen, after a moment's hesitation, m
she piled more faggots on the fire.
ghe divided the loaf into seven por
tions, and filled seven tin tumblers with
sparkling water from a spring close by.
"I am sorry there is no more bread,"
she said, pleasantly, " but you are wel
come to this."
In a few moments the bread had dis
appeared. " We thank you very niuou," sid all
the little women in chorus, as they
gathered round the fire. " And if wo
ever have the chance, we will do as
much for you."
" You are very kind," replied Gretchen.
They all fell to talking, and it was not
lon before Gretchen told her story,
whioh was dreary enough.
- My father does not like strangers,"
she said hastily, as the loud laughing
and shouting of Hans and bis boon com
panions was borne on the air, "and you
mast be very quiet while he is in the
house. My bed is poor and small, but
it Is a little better than the bare ground,"
she added, smiling.
Hans was in a very ill humor. He
raved and stormed a long time ; finally,
seizing Gretchen, he thrust her out of
doors, declaring he would kill her if she
dared enter the house again.
" Others can play at that game ! ex

Hans growled savagely, uud, releasing
his daughter, turned to his small antag
onists, dealing heavy blows, but they
were without avail. Crying out in rage
and terror, Hans, seeing; his efforts were
in vain to conquer his foes, ignominious
ly fled, shouting for help.
Poor Gretchen wept bitterly as she
tell to the ground. A light snow waB
falling, and the wind swept down from
the mountain in wild, fieroe gusts. She
heard her father's cries of terror, and
saw him flee toward the village, closely
pursued by the seven little women.
It was not Ions: before they came back,
and the eldest rang a crystal bell. It
was answered by a multitude of bells
chiming through valley, wood, and plain,
unUl the air was failed with music.
A beautiful little coach, drawn by sev
en milk-white horses, appeared. A foot
man, in splendid livery, opened the door
and' the aeven little women aaoompanied
by Gretobca, filtered and -Che au-ryiage
rolled away. Stwping before a huge
rock, which Gretchen bad often olimbed,
the tootman blew a shrill whutla.a door
swung open, and the carriage rolled
through a long avenue, shaded by trees
laden with flowers and fruit, until it
stopped before a superb palace.
There was the sound of musio and
laughter borne on the fragrant air.
" Her gracious majesty has come,"said
several voices, as they entered the palace
" As the sleeping flowers haste to greet
the sun at morn, so we haste to greet
her .highness, our loved cousin, replied
the little woman.
Gretohen was conducted to a chamber
bung with blue and silver tapestry. The
furniture was of ivory, covered with
blue velvet wrought with pearls. Oh,
how beautiful it all was I
Presently a tiny lady entered, and,
making a queer little bow, said, " Prin

queen acsires to see you.
" The queen '(" repuatnl Gretchen.

While they were talking, the fairy had

her ragged clothes, and dressed her in a
robe white and soft as tho summer

her waist; her dress was looped with

in her ears. She was then taken down
au ivory staircase bordered with gold, a
door was thrown open, and a footman
called out, "The Earth-child!" and
Gretchen found herself in a large room
full of little people.
Princess Lalleen the eldest of the
seven little women advanced to meet
her. Taking her hand she led her to
the further end of the room, where was
a pearl throne thickly studded with dia

Har dress was of the tint of the inner
leaves of the blushing rose, a tiny dia
mond sparkled on her brow, and a crystal
wand, tipped with a blood-red ruby,
was in ber mite of a hand.
The princess bowed very low, as she
stopped before the throne.
"Your graoious majesty she said,
with an enchanting blush, " this earth'

Death and Superstition
Tho bell-ringer of the cathedral of
Wurtzburg has recently perished under
very singular circumstances. The church
possesses a splendid clock, with ponder
ous and complicated works, while a pen
dulum ot proportionate length viorates
to and fro with a dull and monotonous
thud." Eeoently the clock needed
cleaning, and the bell-ringer was deput
ed to superintend the work, though he
ruefully endeavored to be excused irom
the task. It seems that he never will
ingly approached the belfry, from cer
tain unpleasant associations. About
wenty years ago he had killed his pre
decessor in office, accusing him of carry
ing on a criminal intrigue with his wite.
When brought to trial he escaped the
gallows owing to a deficiency of legal
proof. The patronage of the Canons
then procured him the appointment va
cant through the death ot bis victim,
Hence, it is said, arose his superstitious
dread in connection with the belfry
which was supposed to be haunted by
the ghost of the murdered ringer. On
the morning when the clock was to be
cleaned it suddenly stopped; the bell-
ringer was nowhere to be found. A
workman from the town was sent for
and ascended the tower, when he was
horrified to find the pendulum and lower
Works dripping with blood. Upon
searching farther the .body of the bell
ringer was found entangled in the works,
frightfully mangled ana crushed, une
supposition is that he committed suicide
by climbing up the pendulum and then
pitching himself into tne middle 01 xne
machinery of the clock. But the wonder-loving
gossips of the place, with a
thoroughly German propensity for the
horrible, declared that the guilty man,
upon reaching the chamber wherein the
works revolved, was horror-struck by
the apparition of his predecessor sitting
astride the great balance wheel of the
clock, and had been drawn into the
works by a species of horrible and irre
sistible fascination, similar to that which

pure and simple Wo protest in advance
against any attempt by Mr. Darwin, his
friends or bis foes, to deduce from it that
dogs can or cannot reason, or to prove
anything whatever. Now for the dogs
as to the veracity of the tale we per
sonally vouch :
A narrow log lay as a bridge over a ra
vine. From the opposite ends of the
log, at the same moment, there started
to cross it a big Newfoundland and a lit
tle Italian greyhound. Of course they
met in the middle ; of course there was
not room for them to pass; neither
could they go back. The height was a
dangerous one for the greyhound, and to
the water at the bottom be was extreme
ly averse. The Newfoundland could
have taken the leap in safety, (but evi
dently did not want to. There was a
fix. The little dog sat down on his
haunohes, stuck his nose straight up in
the air, and howled. The Newfound
land stood intent, his face solemn with
inward workings. Presently he gave a
nudge .with his nose to the howling
greyhound, as if to say ; " Be still.young-
ster, and listen." Then there was silence
and seeming confabulation for a second
or two. Immediately the big dog spread
his legs wide apart like a Colossus, be
striding the log on its extreme outer
edges, and balancing nimsoit oaretuiiy.
The little dog sprang through the open
ing like a flash. When they reached the
opposite shores the greyhound broko in
to frantic gambols of delight, and the
.Newfoundland, after his more sedate
fashion, expressed great complacency in
his achievement, as he surely had a right
to do. Uhrutian Union,

There is a custom of soalding cream
prevailing In Devonshire, Kn gland,
which is worthy of a wider extension.
The product " clouted " cream, also
oalled " Devonshire " ceam is exceeding
ly rich, thick and palatable, and is ac
counted a luxury wherever obtainable.
The process is the following ! The milk
is allowed to stand in tho dairy, which
must be too cool to allow it to sour,
from twelve to twenty-four hours that
is, the milk of one day is attended to on
the following morning. It is set in tin
pans about seven inohes deep ; these
ave a good handle at eaon siae as a neip
to careful moving. Most of the cream
will have risen at the time of the prepar
ation, which consists in soalding simply
care being taken not to allow the milk
to reaoh the boiling point. The bost
way would be to set ttie pan in gently
boiling water. The heat must be kept
ud until the milk becomes very hot, and
the cream thoroughly " crinklod " or
About Ladles' "Switches."
The Boston Bulletin says : " The first
switches were made in Central Falls,
Rhode Island, by a workman in one of
tho .flax mills. For a long time all that
were used the number of which at first
e quite small were made there,
Afterwards a firm in Providence com
menced the manufacture, under the style
of the Japan (switch Company, manu
facturing largely. The price then was
from f 7 to f i), realizing a large pront to
the manufacturer. (Switches then re
tailed at $1.50 to $2, are now sold at 25
and 37 cents. Several parties started in
this city employ from ten to forty men
each. Some idea of the amount manu
factured can be found from the exper
ience of the largest of our city manufac
turers, employing forty men hacking
and finishing the jute, and fatty or sixty
girls in the manufacture of chignons,
using ten bales of three hundred pounds
each, and three thousand pounds of hair
per day. The above firm used over six
hundred bales (iu,uuo pounds; in less
than three months, at times producing
350 dozen per day of switches alone. A
great outcry has been made against this
material on tho score of insect inhabi
tants, and especially in tho State ot
Maine the prejudice was so strong that
they could not be sold at all. But not
an insect was ever discovered by this
firm, and the jute is as clean, or more so,
than human hair in the course of manu
facture. There are also many switches
made of fino glazed cotton thread, also of
silk dyed without washing out the gum,
-which gives it the nearest resemDlance
to bair of any article used. Much of
this hair silk is woven the same as rib
bons, and afterwards braided like wool

This is Devonshire cream, a delicious
article for home consumption, but one
for which there exists no market de
mand in this country. The ohief value
of the process, for American farmers, lies
in the fact that it is an excellent pre
paratory step in the making of butter.
It secures all the cream, gives it such a
consistency, that skimming is much
easier and much cleaner that is, there
is less milk taken, which enables it to
give np its butter with remarkable ease.
Indeed, it is only necessary to rub the
cream with the hand for a few minutes
in a smooth wooden bowl to separate
the butter entirely, ready for washing.
For each pound of butter there remains
not to exceed a half pint of buttermilk.
This does away, almost entirely, witn
the labor of the churning, and with the
handling of an immense bulk of butter
milk, and its difficult removal from the
butter by washing or otherwise. "When
properly made, the quality of the butter
is excellent ; and there is the advantage.
that the Bkim milk remains sweet and
fit for use, or for the manufacture of
" lean cheese."
We do not pretend that the foregoing
is a complete description of this mode of
making butter ; and we warn all readers
not to blame us if they fail to get good
results from their first experiments. We
have merely sketched out a process that
is in successful use in many parts of
England and Scotland, and that prom
ises advantage for us, and we must leave
the details of manipulation to be learned
by experience. It is an exceedingly
simple system, but it needs practice to
teach the exact point to which the milk
should be scalded, and to settle the
question of temperature, frequency of
churning, etc.
Since the above was written, we have
had a talk with an English lady who
has had experience in the matter. She
says the two great things to be guarded
again&t are : (l.j agitation oi ine mii
in handling the pans; and (2) too rapid
hoating, for too long a time. The pan
should bo set over a slow fire, or oven,
or in boiling water, and watched until
the cream begins to contract so as to
leave the sides of the pan ; then the cen
tre of tho cream should be punctured by
a sharpened stick (wood is better tnan
metal for this purpose ;) if the hole
made become larger, showing a contrac

Coral on tbo Florida KetT.
It is a puzzle to many how and whero
the red coral is obtained. As there is in
these waters a variety of the same ani
mal substance, we may see clearly its
nature. In many places along the reef
we observe tbreuga tbe tnaaa waving
bushes, and feathery, plume-like forms,
ranrrins iu color from a light brown to
black. Under the general term Gorgo-
nia these and the beautiful sea-fans are
known. They grow, like the coral, from
anv fragment on the bottom, ana are in
many respeots the same. From the min
ute germ, or soft polyp, barely visible to
the unassisted eye, is secreted at its base
a peculiar substance, having the same
constituents as the horn and the hoof of
animals. The polyp, now established,
throws out another, and outer coating
of lime similar to that ot the hard coralB :
now a bud is nut forth, and others, and
the stalk branches like a shrub, having
numerous polyps in pores along its surface.
One Bpeoies, found abundantly on the
reef, has a jet-black horny base, or heart,
and this is a variety of the coral used in
jewelry, the only diuerence being in col-
or. lae roa is iouna iu tue ju.tnumr-
ranean Sea. The choice coral of jeweler
is. then, the skeleton portion I a uviu
form. While alive aud growing the sur
face is enveloped in a crust of lime, out
of which, through many minute pores,
the polyps spread their star-liko mouths.
This black coral is equally tine in its
texture, and has the same waxy gloss
that characterizes the red. It would
prove a pleusing material for the samo
uses. Some of the older gorgonias, bear
ing large, heavy tops, have from time to
time, thrown out a new deposit of the
root, so as to make-a sure hold against
the heavy sea. These, when found dry
upon the beaches, so closely resemble
the gnarled roots of a tree in color and
form that nothing but the well-known
results of the chemical analysis will cons
vines one unacquainted with them. It is
Erecisely the same as animal horn or
oof. Diu J. U. llOLUKli, iu Harper'

A Sodii Lake.
The soda hike, recently located at In
dependence Rock, is one mile and a half
in cirouniterence, and it is estimated tnat
at least sixty thousand tuns of soda can
be gathered from it annually at a cost of
(2 per tun or less, tbe freight to the rail
road being estimated at $12 per tun.
The late is replenished from springs
which seeiu to rise front the bed-rock,
which is composed of a kind of crramte
containing soda fulpur. The location
was made for a surface deposit, and tor
alum, soda, borax, and all other alkaline
substances. The lake is sixty-five miles
distant from Itawlings, on the Union
Pucitio Itailroad. There are doubtless
in our State many deposits of soda equal
ly as good ts that mentioned above, and
Borne of them, perhaps, near the railroad.
Our prospectors will do well to keep an
eye open duviug their travels through
the country for soda, alum, borax, salt,
sulphur, etc., as deposits of all these min
erals are likely to beoome very valuable
at no distant day, now that the great
