Youth' Companion, The Hunter's Story. "I have had many narrow escapes and have seen some strange things. can now recall one, when I was hunting beaver, inat as the ice began to break up, and on one of the farthest, wildest lakes I ever visited. I calculated there could be no human being nearer than one hundred miles. I was pushing my canoe along the loose ice, one oold day, when just round a point that projeoted inco me laae, i ueuru soineming want ing through the ice. It made so much noise and stepped so regularly, that I felt sure it must be a moose. I got my nae ready and held it cooked in one hand, while I pushed the canoe with the other. Slowly and carefully I rounded ine point, wncn, wnai was my asromsn ruenfc to see. not a moose but a man. wading in the water the ice water 1 He had nothing on his head or feet, and his clothes were almost torn off from his limbs. He was walking, gesticulating with with his hands, and talking to him self. He seemed to be wasted to skeleton. With great difficulty I got him in my canoe ; when I landed I made up a fire and got him some hot tea and food. He had a bone of some animal in his boBom, which he gnawed almost to nothing. He was nearly frozen, and quieted down and soon fell asleep. I nursed him like an infant. With great difficulty, and in a round-about way I found out the name of the town from' which he came. Slowly and carefully I got along, around falls and over por tages, keeping a resolute watch on him, lest he should escape from me into the forest. At length, after nearly a week's travel. I reached the village where supposed he lived. I found the whole community under deep excitement, and more than a hundred men were scatter ed in the woods and on the mountains. seeking for my crazy companion, for they had learned that he had wandered into the woods. Jt had been agreed upon, that, if he was found, the bells were to be rung and guns fired. And, as soon as I landed, a shout wrs raised, his friends rushed to Lim, the bells broke out in loud notes, and guns were fired, and the report echoed again and again in the forests and on the moun tains till eoery seeker knew that the 1 ost one was found. "How many times I had to tell the story over I 1 never saw people so crazy with joy, for the man was of the first and best families, and they Hoped his insanity wonld be but temporary, as I afterward learned it was. How they feat ted me, and when I en me away, loaded my canoe with provisions and clothing, and everything for my comfort! It was a time and place of wonderful joy. They seemed to forget everybody else, and think only of the poor man whom I had brought buck." tTlie Prer-loaa Herb. Two little German girls, Brigitte and Walburg, were on their way to the town, and each carried a heavy basket on hr head. Brigitte murmured and sighed con stantly, Walburg only laughed and joked. Brigitte said: What makes yon laugh so 7 Your basket is quite heavy as mine, and yon are no stronger than 1 am. Walburg answered: "1 have a pre cious little herb on my load, which makes me hardly feel it at all. Put tome of it on your load as well." "Oh," cried Biigitte, " it must in deed be a precious little herb I I should like to lighten my load with it; so tell me at once what it is called. Walburg replied : ' The preoious little herb that makes all burdens light is called patience. Prescription for Fits. For a fit of passion Walk out into the open air.

Hem Garieaa Facte la Relatlea te Oar Hlraate Appeadaae-BaJdaeat. It has sometimes been wondered where all the false hair oomes from with whioh the deficiencies of the natu ral supply are eked out. Foreign coun tries furnish the bulk of the material for the Amerioan market, as there are few people here who, whether from in clination or necessity, dispose of their locks tor money, Jjight hair oomes from Germany, while Brittuny and the south of France supply the black J and it is a curious sight to see the yonDg peasant girls being sheared like sheep by men as well as women. The univer sal custom of wearing caps which com pletely conceal their abundant locks, doubtless accounts for the readiness of the French peasant girls to sell for a song the fit est ornament of their sex. Now and then some story gets into print, abont the dangers of wearing false hair, and the aocounts of insects which have been said to inhabit it are by no means attractive reading. But these stories are, as a rule, either inven tions or exaggerations, for in every re pntable hair store there is a guarantee of cleanliness which any eye can be sat isfied of. There are, no doubt, un pleasant associations connected with what is known in the trade as "grave yard hair," that is, the hair which is taken from a person's head after death ; but this kind being brittle and deficient in the qualities necessary for daily use, is probably only found in cheap quar ters. Very ourious, as showing the connection between the emotions and the hair, are those instances in which terror or some great mental distmbance has suddenly blanched it. Marie An toinette's experience in having her had become gray the night preceding her execution is sufficiently familiar. An other example, referred to by Dr, Wyuter as coming under his own obser vation, was that of a soldier who feigned rheumatism, and lingered in a hospital for three months, to escape military ser vice. This anxiety to keep up the de ception caused his hair to turn gray, al though he was quite a young man. These emotional affections of the hair are supposed to be caused by the action of some fluid in the blood upon the pig ments. Patches of white hair are some times, though rarely, found upon new born babes, and it is the absence of pig ment which produces the whiteness so familiar in the Albino. As to the causes of baldness, they are to some extent connected with artificial habits of life. The larger deposit of fat in the female scalp, which allows of a free circulation in the capillaries of the skin, is held by medical authorities to account for the general exemption of women from baldness, as compared with men. The smoothness of a scalp de nuded of its natural covering, shows a denseness of texture in the skin caused by the destruction of the bulk of the hair, and the closure of the follicles in this condition, all remedies are use less. The silk hat so constantly worn by men is probably responsible for muoh of the prevailing baldness, and the fact that this ceases below the place of contact with the head, indicates the mode of operation, the exclusion of air and consequent excessive production of heat. Uoolness of the head is a re quisite for a healthy growth of hair, which is apt to come out in fevers and other morbid states of the system. Noth ing better can be devised for the benefit of the hair than the daily nse of oold water, followed by vigorous rubbing. The use of animal fats is injurious by reason of their heating properties, and a light cleansing and gently stimulating wash is the most which is needed by way of artificial application to promote the health and growth of the hair. The blood, says a medical writer, is the only macassar of the hair, the only oil which can with truth be said to " insinuate its balsamic properties into the pores of the head. The fine network of vessels on which the bulbs of the hair rest is alone capable of maintaing its healthy exist ence. The same writer adds : We do not see why internal preparations should not be tried, and we are not at all certain that gelatine soups and pills mnae of the ashes of bnrnt hair, might not be enectual in baldness, as those in' gredienta would supply to the blood the materials necessary for the production of hirsute growths. Barring the cre mation and restaurant suggestions, which are here unpleasantly connected with hair, it might be worth while for persons who have grown gray in read ing fie Timet, or become bald by not reading it, to test tho soundness oi these bits of wisdom in relation to the subject. Boston Timet, Birds and Hard Winters. The tendency to augnr a hard winter from the arrival of birds which usually winter in countries far north of us, is, we think with the Rev. F. O. Morris, himself a great observer of the habits of birds, generally a mistake. What such arrivals do prove, is not what is going to be so much as what has already happen ed in these northern regions the birds flying before the oold, rather than takiug precautions against it before they feel it. No doubt this may imply a severe winter for us, as well as for these north erly regions, especially if northerly winds prevail, as they are very apt to do when there is unusual cold, and, therfore, an unusually dense atmos phere to the north of us, whioh rushes in on the rarer atmosphere of our more humid climate. But that is only Baying that the birds fly from weather which is not likely to extend itself to us, not that they anticipate severe weather oeiore they feel it. When robins come into onr houses we do not take it as proving that a long frost is coming, but only that a hard frost is already there; and we snsnect that the northerly birds fly south for precisely the same reasons for which the robins enter onr houses when they find the cold insupportable out of doors.- LiOnaon spectator. An Artificial Earthquake. Speaking of an explosion of giant powder, by whioh several persona were killed, a San Francisco paper Bays : It is worthy of note, in a scientific noint of view, that the stroke of a hammer driving a nail in a piece of wood, whioh exploded the giant powder works, also shook a oity. There is no part of San Francisco in which the concussion was not felt, thoogu the works were located five miles from the center of population, It is reported that the shook was noticed at San Jose, fifty miles off. The gener al effects were precisely similar to those produced by an earthquake. The di rection of the motion was not the same in all plaoes. Topographical elevations may account for deflections, but the general movement was north and south. Here we have a foroe external to tho earth produoing phenomena precisely similar to those supposed to emanate from the interior. The coincidence, to say the least, is very remarkable. No one accustomed to earthquakes ex periecoing the shook of Wednesday would have set it down to anything else bat an internal oonvuliionv FOR THE FAIR SEX Pashm Nates. Coiffures tend to compactness, and are worn lower in the back. Braids or short curls down the back are worn with dressy evening ooiffares. Small bouffant draperies or paniers are arranged back of the waistcoat on all dressy Parisian toilets. Oriental silks, Persian and Egyptian silks, satins, velvets, brocades and cor duroys are all nsed for waistcoats. Very small figures, checks and stripes on white grounds, are the features in the new spring calicoes and percales. "Pekin," the name given to velvets, silks, and woolens having alternate dull and lustrous stripes, is all the rage at Paris. A double cape of heavy silk chenille, with tinsel thread twisted in the same, is the latest novelty for the neck in place of a soarf . The long waistooats worn with dressy toilets are separate garments, and may be worn with several different kinds of coats and skirts. White satin dresses of creamy or leaden tint are worn by elderly ladies for fall dress, with full trimmings of creamy old point laces. Birds of paradise, butterflies, and in sects of all sorts in the form of gold figures and Impegan feather ornaments are worn in the hair for full dress. The belted Josephine corsage, the corsot basque, and the corsage with long points back and front are all worn for evening, toilets with low, square necks. For street wear, under all oiroum- stanoes, a very simple dress, although it be a little shabby, it is preieraoie 10 one more elaborately arapea ana trimmed that has lost its freshness. All morning toilets for the street should be short and very dark or black, The materials may be vigogne, cash mere, camel's hair, and all woolen goods, but thw trimmings may be of silk. The fancy of the moment in short costumes in a skirt and jacket of seal- brown cloth, the wrap also of the same in English coat shape, trimmed with a collar, revers, cuffs and pocket straps of fur seal. The newest hats for young girls in their teens are of felt, high crowned, with square tops, trimmed with three rows of inch-wide ribbon in bands placed quite far apart around the crown. The brims roll in Derby shape. Other felt hats have a soarf of brown or navy blue satin with white polka dots. Gravat bows have superseded the cravats that pass around the neck; if the latter are used, they are placed in side the dress, instead of concealing the neat collar of the dress, and only the cravat bow is seen. White muslin cravat bows are preferred for plain suits in the morning and for dressy af ternoon wear. When colored cravats are chosen, they are folded like gen tlemen's scarfs to fit in the revers col lar of a coat, or else they are as narrow as the lawn neck-ties worn in full dress; the latter are made of foulard, and em broidered on each end. News aad Notes Tor Women. Gerster, the opera singer, has $600 a week. Minnie Hank has $200. A New York jeweler exhibits a Ohinese empress' robe, broidered in gold. A New York lady has nineteen cats. collected with reference to their delicate shades and tones of color. Professor Billroth, of Vienna, has fonnded a society for the education of nurses for wounded soldiers. In the retail dry-goods stores of Berlin only yonng girls are employed behind the counters to display and sell goods. After a long and severe examination a Viennese lady has been admitted by the university of Zurich to the degree of doctor of philosophy. Bouquets of dried flowers and grasses are sold in .England for interior decora tion, just as they are in America. The flowers are dried in warm sand. A Florida woman recently chopped off the hoad of a great eagle that had become entangled in a honeysuckle vine while trying to kill her chickens. At an English wedding, which took place not long ago, the bridesmaids wore three bands of silver braid around their heads, with a lily at the side. A key was all the present that a New York bride received from the bride groom's parents, but it opened the door of a splendid house, and the young lady did not complain. Opera scarfs three yards long and more than half a yard wide are now popular in Paris for winding aronnd the hair and throat. The newest opera cloaks, enveloping the whole person, are of thick, soft camel's hair, with a hood. The following extract is from an ac count of the reoent visit of the Marquis of Lome and the Princess Louise to Niagara Falls: The ladies all appeared at dinner in full dress. Her royal high ness wore a black silk dress, with court train, the only trimming being crape. Upon her neck was a necklace of Whitby jet beads, three strands, and diamond cut. Her hair was arranged in plain bands, with jet ornaments, and she looked lovely. The other ladies were also in court costumes, and the gentle men were in full dress. A Memorable Street In Paris. It is pleasant to learn, after the topsy tnrvy game to which Paris has been subjected in the past thirty years, that at least one old street, the Rue de l'Arbre, in the midst of the capital, and in the most magnificently transformed quarter, remains intact, witn its verier able mansions and traditions of the sev enteenth century. On this site during 1,200 years strange and terrible soenes have been enacted. At the point where tne Hue de Ittvoli cuts it, iSrnnenaut, queen of France, was, at the age of eighty, torn asunder by horses in 612, In 1505 a great outbreak took place on the same spot because the cure of St Germain l'Auxerrois refused to perform the funeral servioe of a merchant's wife until be bad ascertained whether she had left any money to the church. At the epoch of the Fronde this street was the soene of frequent outbreaks. It was there that Cardinal De Betz, passing through it one evening in 1648, was threatened by a roaster brandishing long spit. The cardinal had not the wildest idea who his enemy was, but had the gumption to say, Villain, if your poor father oonld only see yon now I" when the fellow, imagining that he was a friend of his family, implored Eardon. In the last house on the right and side, abutting on the Bae de Saint Honore, lived in 1672 Francis liarnom, chief barber to Louis XIV. At No. 62. conspicuous by its ourious looksmithing and sculptured balcony, uvea Trudon. butler to Louis XV. In 1769 there were three famous cafet in the street. frequented by learned men and artists of various kinds, and finally No. 8 is Sointed out as the famous quarters of fousquetairesD'Artagnan k Go., whom Dumas has made familiar to every school-boy. ' JORDAN ASD THE DEAD SEA. The Hat-red and Famaias Waters of Pales tier. The following extract is from " Syrian Sunshine, " by T. G. Appleton: The Nile is a sacred river, and the Tiber is famous, but the most snored and most famous river of the world is the Jordan. From the beginning to the end, it has that mystical character which befits suoh lofty pretensions; its life is the most vivid and complete, and its death the most sudden and mysterious that can be imagined. It is torrential, and it leaves the banks of the Hermon and the many fountains of its tributaries with an eager precipitation, as if it bore a mission. From its greatest height, some hundred feet above the sea level, it leaps downward till it disappears in the Dead sea some thirteen hundred feet below it. It hides itself among oleander.tamarisk and willow, and many an unfamiliar Oriental tree, as if wish ing to keep from profane eyes the secret of its errand. It does not stop long to overflow its banks and fertilize the val ley, for it has a purpose too mystical to waste itself even upon acts of benevo lence. It is only willing to beoome a living barrier between the desert tribes and the favored nation which loved it. No boat lives on its bosom. No fisher men dwell by its margin; but it moves, one headlong column of saored waters from its cradle of snow and cloud, high in the heaven, till it dies in a fatal lake marked by the finger of God, and for ever a subject for man's ouriosity and reverence. It would seem a thing apart and not to be confounded with vulgar waters, which lose their personality in the bosom of the mighty sea, but exhaling to heaven like some holy messenger who perished in the fulfillment of bis duty. Its birth and its death alike separate it from its sister rivers of earth, and only the voiceless mounds of perished and nameless cities, tribes stationary as if bidden to halt by some supreme destiny of the past,or the awed and questioning stranger from the many Christian lands whose baptism drew its authority from the sprinkling of its waters, are seen upon its banks. And then we wandered through many whispering reeds, through a kind of jungle where sterility and the river had fought for mastery, and which showed traces of both; a tangle of bushes as it were, fighting their way up, and great spaces oi barrenness which the Bummer would scorch to lifelessness. And at last the Dead sea. Though we know that it is of volcanic origin. and fed by mines of salt, the imagina tion now, as ever, is content to see in it a thing accursed. There was a fresh breeze; and a reluotant lift and heavy tumble cf its tiny breakers made them unlike other waves, bnt rather like those of Dante's Infernal sea. There was a breath heavy with doom in the air, and we were fortunate it was not more stifling. Was it the breath of those lost or tortured there ? And be neath that saline pheet, did we not see, as in the picture of Delacroix, the ago nizing and twisted figures of the con demned ? we did not bathe in the Dead sea. Others have done so, and report of its buoyancy the same tales that are told of our own Halt lake. There is a whimsi cal coincidence in the geographical re lation of the Dead sea and the home of the earlier prophets, and Mr. Brigham loung s personal continuation of the old dispensation, with a private Dead sea of his own, in his immediate neigh' borhood. The poorest swimmer keeps his head above water; and persons have said to me that their legs seemed to fly up from under them. All speak of its waters as refreshing after the great heat of that tropical valley. Birds are said never to fly over it, which is the merest superstition, for they are really often seen to do bo. This lake certainly has a brand upon it, as of divine ven geance. The waters are heavy with sin. the shores around blessed, and the very site of destroyed cities upon its banks unknown. And here are still seen the apples of Sodom, smooth and pretty to the eye and touch, of a pale yellow, like a small orange, but within, as Josephua says, still retaining the ashes of Sodom in living perpetuity of the divine punishment. They are like lit tle oranges to the eye and touch, but when pressed are like oak apples, and explode like these, a pun of air leaving the shell hollow, with only a slender pouch holding fine filaments like silk, which the Arabs use as matches for their gnns. Patience. Since the days of tbe sorely afflicted Job, patience baa been a virtue well worthy to be practiced by all. It is tbe patient plodder that acquires greatness rather than the giant intellect. The greatest inventors of this or any other age, have only beoome so by patient investigation and trial. The astronomer must nave patience as nis eyes wanaer among the countless multitude of stars that gem the canopy of the heavens. He can not learn the names of even the sen tinels upon the outskirts in a single night. So with the scholar. He can not advanoe through that which has cost others vears of study in a single day, Sir Isaac Newton thougnt long ana well on tbe subiect of gravitation.

Coming down on the oar the other morning they got to talking about their ooal stoves and one man said : " Well, I don't want to brag, bnt t think I've got the boss stove. Ho far this winter I have burned but three tons of ooal and the stove has kept three rooms warm. " Yon must have a poor stove," re marked the second. " I have burned but two tons of ooal yet, and my stove heats parlor, dining-room, two bed rooms and a hall." " Well, when yon come to stoves," quietly remarked the third, ' I claim to have the best ooal stove iu Detroit. I have burned but a ton and a half of ooal bo far, and we hnto to keep all the dampers shut and a back dcor open all tne time." Some men looked ont of the windows and some down at the straw, and no one seemed to doubt any of the assertions. At length a heavy sigh was heard from the rear end of the car and a man arose and said : " Gentlemen, there goes a fire alarm. It strikes the box in front of my house I have no doubt that my residence is at this moment in flames and the lives of my family in peril. .It is all owing to my coal stove. I set up the stove last November and put in one peck of coal. Every room has been so hot ever since that the base boards have warped off, and finally we had to move down into the basement. This morning the water in all tho pipes in the bouse was boiling, the shingles on the roof hot, and I just hired four men to form a snow bank aronnd the stove.
