FOU THE LADIES.
Vaticinated by Veer Sinter. A correspondent of the Chicago Inter Ocean, rofening to the fascination opera singers in their stnge make-up have for susceptible and silly joung women, and the unpleasant consequences often the result, snys : " It is a fnct, with one or two excep tions, all the best known singers are married men with families, and I do not know one of them who, in private life, could be called handsome ; yet they all, even going or tside the ranks of singers, to that gross fellow Levy to Campanini, red-faced, fat and Willi five children, are inundated with love letters, bon qnets and presents. The men who have the most common sense and the most principle laugh at these epistles and de stroy them a good thing for the writers but there are others, less honorable, who do not hesitate to take advantage in various ways of these pretty little ninnies." The correspondent then cites a num ber of instances, among them the fol lowing : " The seventeen-year old daughter of Dr. W , of this city, fell, or imag ined she did, wildly in love with a mellow-voiced baritone in the Mapleson company. Under an assumed nnme she wrote him gushing and romantic notes, and finally sent her photograph. The face was so lovely that it piqued the singer's curiosity, but it was in vain he pleaded for nn opportunity to see it. Miss W could only enjoy her esca pade as long as she maintained her in cognito. Finally the baritone, noting the name of the photographer, visited his parlor and ascertained his corre spondent's name. Then he wrote to her under her real address, saying ho had identified her, and she could take the choice of having her picture and notes back and giving him ?200 in cash, or he would tell a reporter of the Police Gazette the btory and have the picture published. There is little likelihood such a threat would have been carried out, but the girl was so terribly fright ened that sho sent him all the money she could scrape together, and the rest of the sum in jewelry. " " A case of basso infatuation was that of a daughter of an ex senator, still prominent in Ya?hingtou circles, who used to spend nil her pin money iu buy ing presents and baskets of llowers which she sent Conley. In some mys terious way her father received a hint of it, and the young lady was sent to the Georgia convent, where she was educated lor a couple of years by way of punishment. Castle, though neither so young nor so charming as he once was, still receives loads of gushing epistles which Mrs. Castle demurely twists into cigar-lighters, and Brignoli says: ' I haf teached misself ze Inglis language with these liddle lettres.' In Chicago your correspondent is told there resides a wealthy and charming young married lady who entertain handsomely nnd is well known in so ciety, but who distracts her elderly husband by a mania for making the ac quaintance of every new male singer of noto, and entertaining him with the greatest elegance and expense." Sometimes the giddy things are taught needed lessons by sensible singers, as witness this: " Another case with a better ending wjis that of a young lady whose father is well known on the stock exchange. Sho was violently smitten with Campanini, and used to send him no end of beauti fully written missives, and every night a bouquet of red roses. The letters especially attracted the attention of the tenor, because they were written in smoothly flowing Italian, and evidently by some one who was more romantic than fust or wild. There was little trouble in finding out the fair corre epondent, and Mme. Campanini, who lias a good and lovely soul, sent a note to the young lady and asked her to call, It is needless to say the latter s delight lul delusions were quickly dispelled before the domestic life of the silver toned tenor and the kindly advice of his good wife."

Some years ago there lived in Phil adelphia a thrifty pair. The husband's business was one that his wife could assist in, eo she as in everv way his helpmeet, besides being his house keeper and his savings bank. They were happy and prospering in their own little house the Philadolphian's patent idea of comfort. After a time the man grew ambitions to get a more showy footing. lie took to politics as is the duty of all citizens when this means politics and water. Unfortunately it was politics and whisky in his case the sort of ward politics that is carried on in liquor saloons. He grew to be such an important man in his "com bination " that he could not attend to hisjjbnsiness any more. If this were the story of "Mulhooly" the rest of it would be that, in spite of his empty shop and unfinished orders, he went on getting rich. But X was not a high politician of that kind. He was of the sort that is used not a master in the political trade. His wife, left alone in the Bhop, did her best; but for the very fact that she was alone, that he was never seen, customers began to suspect something. Orders that he had taken went wrong; comolaints wero made of lost goods that had been trusted to him. She had to make them good. Here again the story ought to turn, that she built up the business herself again, and put up her own name as a sole trader. But she wns a poor heart broken woman. She wanted to reclaim him, and not even the business was as important to her as what had become of her husband all the days and nights he had stayed away from her. They wero half starved, but she kept up a decent appearanco still, kept her children clean and herself tidy. One day a strange thing happened. This respectable, neat woman, with her two pretty chil dren, made her appearance in the tavern where this man spent his days. Sho did not mako a scene; she did not come for that. She quietly took her seat there and waited for him. People camo up to her and urged her to go home, saying that this low drinking resort was no place for her and her children. "Wherever the father stays, " she replied, "is the place for his children and for me." Of course he was readv poontogohome. Some men would have been brutal have struck of cursed at her for interference, but this man was only weak, not cowardly. The next dav he went to another place. She followed presently with the bright little children. This was kept up for some weeks. The tavern-keepers grew uneasy. They could not stand tho mute witness of the man's weakness. Tbev conld not complain of her, for the did nothing said nothing only sat and watched. She did not cry or entreat while her husband loungtd up to the bar to drink. She simply sat by, pamed and intent, with the two children kept very close to her, as if she would shut out from their eyes and ears snch talk and such sights. No tavern-keeper could stand it. One after another refused to sell liquor to a man so guarded. Finally it began to tell on him this gentle, faithful watch. He stopped drinking, dropped his "political " associates that had led him to it, and began to turn over a new leaf. He picked up his old business again, but hnaiiy concluded to movo to another place and make a clean start, lie is now prosperous, and his ex perience is not the least part of his gams. This was the way cne woman reformed her husband; with never spoken word she fairly shamed him out of his ruin by letting him see that whatever he sank to there sho and her children were bound to be, and that even iu danger or foulnes she still looked to him to protect them. For better, for worse, sho had married him, and even when he took the worse thcro would she and her children be, It was an appeal to his manhood, and a very uncomfortable appeal to the manhood or all who stood around or who dropped in to drink. Not a crying woman not even a praving one, as any one could seo but by tho mute appeal of her presence there, finally con quering for decency and happiness again. Jlosbv's Narrow Escapes.

Teeth as Producer of Xear-Siehted. ness. Dr. Sexton, a leading otolocist nt New York, thinks he has discovered a connection between near-sierhtedness. mpoired hearinsr and defective tenth the teeth furnish the startinar noinfc fnr the disorder affecting the other two or gans. The fifth pair" of nerves sup plies at once the teeth, the tissue of the nose, those of the eve and ear. th integuments of the frontal and tern poral region, etc. A defective tooth produces irritation of the whole region thus supplied, and in fact often occa sions severe cases of neuralgia. Even when there is no pain felt in a tooth it may yet be the cause of grave disorder in the eye, ear or temple. Dementia, I it is ciaiiueu, is sometimes due to a . tooth having all the appearance of sound ness to the unprofessional eye. Japanese Agriculture. Mr. Thomas B. Van Bnren, consul- general of Japan, in his official report presents us with quite a thorough in sight into Japanese agriculture. Hav ing some 50,000,000 acres of tillable land, but little over one-fourth is under cultivation. Extensive field farming is almost unknown, and agriculture par takes of the character of garden farm ing, the average size of such cultivated patches being not over one-half of an acre in extent, 'lhis land is made to bear both a summer and winter crop, and Mr. Van Buren writes that "the thor oughness of the spade or mattock culti vation and the careful attention to ferti lization produces large returns and pre serves the bearing capacity of the soil better than our superficial plowing and rough fertilization." Cattle being almost nnknown, night soil is tho chief fertilizer of the Japanese farmer. Mr. Van Bnren believes that whenever farm stock are introduced and arti ficial manures are made the result will be a vast increaso in Japanese agricultural products. Rice, as is well known, is the great staple product, bar- ev is next, and wheat Inst, luce plant ing takes up rather more than one-half of all the area under tillage, being about 6,800,000 acres. About forty bushels per acre is the average yield, and the product last year was 205,000, 000 bushels. Barley was produced to the amount of 60,000,000 bushels. It is mado into a coarse flour and eaten mixed with rice. It is largely consumed in the manufacture of sake. The quantity of wheat made was as.UUU.UUU bushels. Winter wheat is the variety used, and the Ground is thoroutrhlv manured with ashes and compost. All the methods of separating the seed are of the crudest character, tho only improvements being those derived from the Dutch in the eighteenth century. With such a sub divided system of asricultnre our American agricultural machinery would be comparatively useless. The quantity of sugar made in Japan from the sor ghurn is fairly large, some 67,000,000 pounds. The process of granulation is still a very primitive one, though tho product is excellent. It seems possible that apparatus of a simple and inex peusivo character, such as we use for sorghum in the United States, might find purchasers in Japan. In 1878 Ja pan grew 95,000,000 pounds of tobacco, Japan makes for European consumption some 60,000 worth of cigars, and ex ports to England and Germany tobacco to the amount of 217,000, where it is used for cigarettes. The chestnut is widely cultivated and used as food, but it is not the chestnut of Europe, but the chincapin of our Middle and South ern States. As to esculent roots and tubers, the variety grown is very large,- though our potato is only cultivated for foreisrn consumption. The yam, or sweet potato, is extensively planted, and forms a considerable portion of the diet of tho poorer classes, being worth about one-fourth of a cent per pound Life in Paris.

It is a sore called a "dateniark, because after it has healed it leaves an indelible mark, about the size and shape of a date. It generally makes its appearance auout the face, lasts a year, and then disappears. Tho cheek of nearly every man and woman in Bagdad shows the inevitable mark. Sometimes it settles upon the noso,and then the disfigurement is great; some times on tho eyelid, when blindness is the result. Strangers are attacked even after a brief residence; but fortunately, if they are adults, the sore is more apt to come on the arm. In every case the attack runs its course for one year. No treatment, no ointment, nor medicine, it is said, has tho slightest effect npon it. Once the sore appearing, the suf ferer knows what to expoct, and may as well resign himself to his fat?. It is incurable. The Paper Product. It is estimated that nearlv 2.000.000.- 000 pounds of paper is produced an nually, one-half of which is used in printing, a sixth for writing, and the remainder is coarse paper tor packing and other purposes. The United States alone produces yearly 100,000 tons of aper, averaging seventeen pounds per ead for its population. The English man eomes next, with about twelve pounds per head; the educated German takes eight pounds, the Frenchman seven pounds, while theItalian,Spaniard and Russian take respectively three pounds, one and one-half pounds and one pound annually, the consumption of paper being roughly in proportion to the education and political activity of the people.

WALLACE, HILTON A C'J., lifutiguta, Look Haven, Fa, ...J. Wonderful Inventive Faculty. The news of t.lm death abroad recently of Hamilton E. Towle recalls the bright career and remarkable achievements of dishngnishrd American civil engineer. Mr. Towle was a passenger on the famous Grent Pnstern during ner mem orable voyage across the Atlantio when she encountered a great storm, wcicn broke her stem-inff appatatus. Her commander and crew could do nothing in the terrible emergency, and sho lay practicallv helpless at the mercy of the waves, in this critical moment Mr. Towlo carefully and with wonderful self-possession examined tue urouen machinery nnd rigged up from the material at hand an apparatus of his own desicning. which proved equal to the urgent needs of the situation. The improvised rudder brought the great vessel snfely in port, and the distinguished American re ceived from the cratofnl passengers, who deeraed their lives to have been saved by him, the gift of a superb gold watch, ornamented with costly jewels, and engraved with a memorial inscrip tion commemorating his historical feat of encineerintr. This timepiece he wore with conscious pride during his lifetime, and he also exhibited at times, ith an equally pardonable egotism, a 'edal presented to him by an English humane societv in recognition of his achievement. The steamship owners, of all who profited bv his knowledge of en gincering, however, wore, it seems, tho only ones to dispute the value of his splendid services, and he was compelled to bring suit to recover tho salvage to which ho was justly entitled. At the time of the terrible shipwreck of the 11-futed Atlantic he delivered a lecture in Cooper Institute, asserting boldly according to his knowledge of naviga tion, that tho disaster was attributable to faulty seamanship. From early boy. hood he displayed a noteworthy inventive faculty, and rigged up all sorts of in genious toy water-wheels and the like. This profuse and surprising supply of clover ideas seemed to grow with his years, and the ingenious conceptions with which his active, mature brain teemed, nnd many of which bore fruit m useful engineering inventions, seemed endless. He designed surveying level, which met a long-felt need; was instrumental in the pence tion of the Towlo bell-register, adopted by the Third avenue surface railway at the advent of iho bell-puncb, nnd was interested in a host of other inventions, of which a machine for type-setting, self-inking letter-stamps, telegraphic instruments, argand burners, patent washing chemicals, theodolites, and weighing scales were but a few. Before his illness ho was head of the Towle Manufacturing company, in Cortlandt street, in this city. The saddest feature of his death is that it is reported to have been due to tho weakening of a brain whoso strength and extensive creative power made hira at times a marvel to his frieuda and associates. Keo York Times. A Remarkable Hermit. About five miles southeast of Pnuld insr. Ind., lives one of the most re markable hermits known.
