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
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."

A Faithful 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

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

A Mysterious Malady,
A most unpleasant malady affects
everybody wno visits or resides in tho
city of Bagdad. 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

alone produces yearly 100,000 tons of

pounds per head; the educated German
takes eight pounds, the Frenchman
seven pounds, while theItalian,Spaniard

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

As if there were not sufficient excitement
nt the usual liorse-ruci', these meetings on
the turf nearly always close with a grand
steeple chase. This kind of race combines
all the excitement of the regular race, with
the Fuper-aiMod clement of, danger which
seems to give further 7.c.'t to the sport.
Horses, and good ones at that, often receive
severe injuries, which rentier them practi
cally useless for long periods. At least
this was the state of affairs until owners
and breeders of fine stock began to freely
use t. Jacobs Oil, the Great German
F.cmedy for man and beast. This invalu
able article to horsemen has eo grown into
favor on account ot its phenomenal tllieary
in diseases of domestic animals, especially
the horse, that it would be difficult indeed
to discover a horsemen iinacrjunintcd with
its magical potency. The Philadelphia
Easy llmr. in a recent issue says: "But
one of the most important developments
concerning St. Jacoiis On. is the discoverv
that it has properties which are bcneficia"l
to the animal as well as to the human
cpecies. It has, of late, been in active de
mand among livery men nnd others for use
on horses suffering from i-praiiis or abra
sions. The most prominent instance known
of in this connection, is that related by Mr.
David Walton, a well-known Friend, who
keeps a livery stable at 1245 North Twelfth
street. Mr. Walton states that he was
boarding a valuable horse belonging to
Benjamin McClurg, also a resident of
North Twelfth street. A few weeks ago
the animal slipped and badly sprained his
leg, making him very lame. Mr. Walton
used two bottles of St. Jacobs Oil on the
animal and found within le.-s than one
week, that there was no need for uny more,
for the animal wns bs v eil us ever.
