Ttie list of failures this week, foot
up nearly one hundred, and they em
irate almost all varieties of business.
The biDusbed parties generally offer
2') cents on the dollar, that being the
regular figure. So common have
failures become, that they excite no
more surprise. The oldest, strongest
hou.-ci in the city are going, and no
one knows to-day who is going to
morrow. Kents are still sinking, and
tbeneurerthe month of May ap
proaches, the more the landlords
tremble. Their expensive stores on
Broadway are being vacated, and ap
plications for rtieu) are as rare as
hen's teeth. I know of one btore
that four years ago was in demand
at flS.UOU per year, that is now be
ing occupied at $6,000, and the ten-,
ajis are giving it up for they can gel
a littler one at $4,000. Tbe truth is
business men can hardly afTord to pay
auy rent, for there is no proGt what

value is going on steadily, and no
one can sec the end. Relief must

1 he Hippodrome is still packed ut
mid-Jay and evening, and tbe relig
ions movement is treated with tbe
greatest respect by the papers. But
a visit to tbe meetings convinces a
candid person, that the reason of the
treat audiences drawn tocretber is
not Mr. Moody's earnestness, or Mr.
iSaukcy's singing, of which he has
grown as chary of late as a pet
tenor in onera, but the number who
take a Horiotis interest in religion.
There are thousands of genuinely
good people in tbe city, who believe
that religion out weighs all other in
terests, and are drawn to these meet
ings, hoping for good. Thepopulari-
ty ot Moody and fcankey in Great
liritian is easily understood: it was
their Americanism attracked the
crowd, j'jst as anything distinctively
American attracts English attention,
hke the jubilee singers, Artemus
Ward and Mark Twain, and Brete
Hartc's stories, whose popularity
abroad out runs that they have at
home. One can imagine what, a con
trast Mr. Moody's curt, utterly un
conventional manner, his homely il
lustrations, must have been to the
formal EugH.su way of doing things,
and it is no wonder he took the rath

York sit up in the preacher's pen at

Moody's apt hits, in the way of il
lustration, as they would at excellent
jokes, aud the evangelist runs on
about salvation, very much in the
way a Chicago business mau u'ks
insurance, or railroads, with the
same earnestness, but not a whit
more feeling or reverence. His whole
manner, is that of a finished auction

Carefully compiled tables show
that almost one half of the skilled
labor of the city is idle, and that
wages for those in employment have

There is but very little building going
op, and but very little repairing, and
in regular manufacturing there is ab
solute stagnation. It is a curious
thing that piano making is the only
trade w hich keens its hands all em
ployed, and at old wages. Fianos
arc luxuries, and it would seem that
this trade would be the Crsi to fall off,
but it is not so. 1 bat trade is just
as brisk as ever. The charities are
of course crowded with the hungry
and naked, and tbe societies lor sup
plying firing are taxed away beyond
their capacity. ir tncre ever was a

While the poor are starving the
rich are atnnsing themselves, as they
always will. Tbe last form of fash
ionable amusement is horseback par
ties. Companies assemble at com
fortable riding-schools, ladies and
gentlemen, and train their horses to
go through tbe figures of dances,
precisely as though they were in a
ball-room. Think of the Virginia
reel on horseback! Yet tbey do it,
and they "tag," just as they used to
when they were children, and thir
fathers were butchers and bakers.
This latter game they play with their
horses at full gallop, and so expert
have riders become, that very few
accidents are reported. It beats
! skating.
I. .
is upon us, and tbc fashionable Chris
tians hare to change their base
Tbey cannot show their fine feathers
at the theatres, operas or parties, but
they make it up at the churches.
How devoutly they crowd the
churches every morning, when they
bave new clothes, and how sweetly
pious they look, when they glance
around and sec that tbey out-dress
all their neighbors, and then tbe meet
ings for charity, which are eminently
proper. , How they complacently go
in a sweet, simple costume that cost
$1000 in Paris, and give $10 to re
lieve the suHeriog poor at tbeirdoors!
' It there is anything utterly ab.-urd.
it is toe observance ot Lent by a
fashionable New York Christian la
dy. They make tbe season of morti
fication tbe time for the wildest possi
ble extravagance. They exchange
1 lLe paid singers of the opera for;
' p.ii fci of tbe fasbiona
sinirers of tbe fashionable
churches, and take revenue for the in
feriority by piling more agony on
their dree Carious world this.
And yet these people all expect to get
to heaven by-and-by.
"Ah! Seaor Ingles, I see you're
determined to defy our climate ! After
tbe march that my husband led you
through the woods ibis morning, one
would have thought you'd have been
glad of a siesta ; and here I 2nd you
writing away like any lawyer.
So speass, gliding out w ith the sup
pleness of Spanish blood into the
verandah in which I am seated, my
charming hostess, Seuora Diaz, one
of the most piquant little tropical
beauties that Murillo ever dreamed
"Well, really, senora, after all the
wonders I've seen in this fairyland of
yours, I had need write them down
as fast as I Fee them, lest, as yuur
proverbe says, one nail should drive
out another."
"Y'ou flatter our poor country, se
n r, with the couuesy of your na
tion. Uut as 1 see tbat you are put
ting by your writing, I will task your
gallantry so far as to beg your help
in watering my flowers, for it is not
easy for me, with my lame band, to
manage that great watering pot I"
"Be pleased to use my bands as
those of rour slave, 6eoora, when
and wherever you may need tbem.
By-tbe-by, am I wrong in imagining
that you promised me a story con
nected w ith tbe lameing of tbe band
of which you speak f I would not
willingly be troublesome, but when
you haye leisure"
"With pleasure, scuor; it is very
kind of you to interest yourself in
such a trifle. As soon as tbe plants
are watered. I shall have tbe honor
of serving you a cup of coffee on the
balcony ; and, then, if you are good
enough to care to hear it, the story is
quite at your service."
And accordingly, ten mintues later,
I find myself sitting in tbe verandah
over a cui of such coffee as I have
not tasted since leaving Arabia, with
little L0I1U (Dolores), my hostess
only daughter, and my especial pet,
nestling at my side; while tbe seno-
ra, deftly rolling up and lighting a
paper cigarette, begins as follows:
hen we first came here, senor, a
good many years ago, the place was
very different from wbai you see it.
My husband had a grant of land
from the government, which was
glad to give away ground about here
to any one who would take the trou
ble to clear it; aud well it might!
For in those days the juogle reached
right down to the water's edge; and
such a black, horrid tangle it looked
of briars, bamboos, Spanish bayonet,
wild fig, liana, pirijao, locust wood,
aud w hat not, that I felt as if I dare
not even iro a step into it for fear of
being lost altogether.
However, bit by bit, we began to
get the ground into some sort of or
der; but even when we bad cleared
it, and begun to plant it, we had still
plenty of enemies to fight against.
Tbe ants w. re tbe worst ; tor, apart
from :he havoc which tbey always
make in a plantation, they have a
way of running their galleries under
the" whole surface, aud it breaks in
just like tbe crust of a pie. There's
a place a little to tbe uonn ot tnis,
where you see a buge pit in tbe
ground, full of bushes and wild
griss, with here and there a few
smoldering timbers, where a whole
village sank at once, tbe foundatious
having been fairly houeycombed by
tbe ants! And thence comes our
saying tbat Paruguay has two ene
mies ' the wild Indians aud the ant
However, luckily for us, there were
no Indians about there, except tbe
tame Indians, who behaved well
enough, aud used to bring us food
aud dried meat in exchange for kuiv-
e.-J aud aguardiente. Aud as for the
auts, what with poisoning tbem, and
digging up their nests, aud flooding
their galleries with boiling water, we
managed to get the best of tbem at
last, though even now tbey some
limes make a foray upon us from tbe
woods around. But after them came
another pest that was far worse tbe
nakes. I need hardly tell you, who
have been through the forests your
self, how they swarm there; and for
a time 1 really gave myself up for
lost. My husband used to call tbem
"the tax gatherers," and, really they
were quite as regular, not a day that
we didn't find oue or two of tbem
about the bouse. And once what
f.ight I got! When Lolita was only
a fe months old, my husband aud
his men had goue out to their work
one morning as usual, and I was busy
in the bouse, with tbe child lying
asleep on a mat at tbe otber end of
the room, when, all at once, I caught
sight of a mou-e'sskin on the floor,
with the body sucked clean out of it,
like an orange. I knew at once tbat
there must be a snake somewhere
about, for they're mighty fond of
mice, and that's just the way they I
deal with them; but, look as I might
1 could see no suake anywhere, till
suddenly the thought struck me,
could it be under tbe child's mat?
As gently as I could, I lifted up one
corner, and there it was. tbe long,
slimy, green aud yellow beast, curled
snugly up, and fast asleep. 1 knew
that I could d- nothing with it my
self, for it was a sort that you can
only kill by shooting tbem ; so I ran
out in tbe courtyard, and, luckily,
the first thing I saw was our hunter
Jose, with bis gun on his shoulder.
I called biin in at oace, and he set
tled the beast with a charge of small
However, as tbe work went on,
and we got more and more ground
cleared, our visitors began to forsake
us ; for snakes must have a thick
cover to burrow iu, and, when that's
taken awuy from them tbey soon
slink off. So tben I began tc hope
thai we were fairly at tbe end of our
troubles; but we weren't we were
only at the beginning of tbem.
I don't know how it was perhaps
it may have been tbat (as tbe pro.
verb says) everything uiust have its
turn but, somehow, all through our
troubles with tbe ants, and serpents,
the bigger beasts bad never disturb
ed us at ill ; but now, just as we
were beginning to have a little peace
from our other plagues, the fiur
footed gentlemen began to come on
tbe stage at last. Oue moruing. just
as we were at breakfast, in came one
of our vaqueros with lhe news that
our cattle, while feeding among the
long grass on tbe other side of the
river, bad been attacked by a jaguar,
and one of tbem killed. The fellow
who bad brought ibe news bad bad
to run for bis life, and would hardly
have escaped had there not lieen a
fat ox ready at baud instead. As it
was, be looked so thoroughly fright
eced that it made us all rather seri
ous. However, a week passed with
out any fresh alarm, and we we; 3 be
ginning to get over it, when sudden
ly in came three or four Iudiaos io a
great flurry to tell us tbat a buge
jaguar bad broken into their encamp-
oieut, aud killed a woman and one of
their dogs. When nfy husband
heard tbe story be made sure tbat it
as tbe same beast tbat bad fallen
upon our cattle ; for tbey described
it as being of a yery strange color,
far lighter than any that bad ever
been seen it those parts before, and
from that they bad nicknamed it the
'Pale Death." So then we ail
thought itjull lime to do something;
aud my husband called his men to
gether to go out and huut it down.
I remember that morning well,
though it be a year ag3 tbe day after
to-morrow. Away tbey went merri
ly enoogb, every man with bis gun
and hunting knife, and M .ro, ihe
blood bouud, aloug with tbem. My
husband turned aud kissed bis baud
to me just as tbey entered the wood,
and then they were gone !
When I fouud myself all alone io
the house with Lolita, and thought
of what might happen if they met
this horrible beast, I was so frighten
ed tbat (although I had no thought
of any cbauce of danger to
myself) I wasn't satisfied till I had
shut aud barred every door in ibe
bouse; aud then I caiue aud sat
down in tbe drawing room, and took
Lolita in my lap, aud tried to tell her
a story.
Suddenly I beasd a scrapiug along
the roof, aud tbeu a dull tbump like
the fall of something heavy ! Aux
ious and nervous as I was, it gave
me a terrible start, though I little
dreamt what it was But tbe next
momeut came a sound just overhead
that I could not mistake a long
hoarse, roar, that I bad beard many
a time in the forest at night, aud
never beard without feeling my heart
stand still. Tben fie thought struck
me "Oh, Heaven; the jaguar."
I shall never forget tbat moment!
For ooe minute I was quite sick and
helpless, as if all the life bad been
struek out of me at one blow ; and
tben a thought flashed upon me.
There was no keeping tbe jaguar out,
for most of the doorways were only
hung with eurtains; but in the store
room cloe by there was a huge
wooden corn chest, nearly empty,
and big enough to bold six or seven
people at once. If Lolita and I could
only get in there we might yet be
saved !
I snntcbed up the child, ran with
her into the storercom, and crouched
down in tbe chest. Unluckily ii clos
ed with a spring lock, that 1 had
to keep tbe lid slightly open wun my
left hand, to avoid being shut dowu
and stifled outright; but it bad an
overlapping edge several inches long
which quite covered my liugers.
I was not a moment loo soon.
Hardly bad I got fairly settled in my
hiding place, when I beard the great
claws scraping the floor, and tbe
hungry sniff as the jaguar quested
bout in search of tood. tie came
straight to the chest, aud there stop-,
ped short a moment, as if su.-peetiugi
trap. Tbeu be put his neaa ciosu
to tbe narrow opening, so that I could
feel bis hot breath on my face, snuff
ed once or twice t satisfy hnusejf.
and then tried to force the lid up wuh'
bis paw; but, thank God, the great
paw wouu not go into mat nine
All he could do was to get his
tongue in aud lick my fingers, mak
ing them bleed as if they had beeu
rasped with a saw. And then, w hat
wi'b tbe taste of blood, and whit
with hearing Lolita crying inside.
bis fury was rous.id, and he began to
roar, not an honest, deoinoutbed
u roar, but a sharp, snarling yell.
tbat made my Idood run cold. Ugh !
I can t think bow I didu t die out
right, but tb- touch of Loliia's little
arm. cliugiug round my neck, seemed
to eive me courage.
But the worst was r-till to come.
Finding that he ci-uld uot reach me
from below, be sprang on the top of
the chest, crusbiug my haud between
the lid and the upper edge. Tben I
thought all was over, and gave a
scream that made tbe whole house
My scream was answered by a
sound tbat made my heart leap the
distant cry of a bloodhound I Tbe
jaguar heard it, too, for he leaped
down and stood listening for a mo
ment, and then ran to the door, as if
to escape. There it wa3 again
much nearer and with it the voices
of men calling to each other. They
were coming back ! Meanwhile the
jaguar seemed to get bewildered, and
ran wildly up and dowu the inner
Suddenly there came a loud shout
at one of the windows, and then two
shots and a frightful yell ; and tben
my husband's voice, strained to its
loudest: "Cuchita! Where are you ?"
I just managed to crall to the door
and let him in, and tben I fainted
Tbey told me afterwards tbat our
bloodbonnd bad struck tbe trail of
tbe jaguar leading straight toward
the bouse; and then tbey all set off
to run like madmen, fearing some
barm to me. My husband and Jose
distanced the rest, and came up just
in time to shoot the beast hrough
the window.
As for my hand, it was so crushed
that I couldn't stir a joint of it for
weeks after. The Indians doctored
it for me, and they tell me I shali
have the use of it again by-and-bve:
but I Jou't need tbat to reiniud use of
that day. If I live a thousand vears,
I shall uever forget it.
How Butler la Tainted.
Winter and spriog butler is often
verv much iuiuied in flavor bv allow-
inttcows to eat ihe litter from horse
siables. Cows are not utifreqieutly
very fond of this li'ter, tboub it i-
impregnateU wun liquid manure
from tbe horses, and if allowed
ihey eat it greedily ; and tbe effect is
ibat their milk aud buuer will be
tainted with the taste of this kind of
food, in the same way hat tbe flav
is injured by eating turnips, hut, to
more disagreeable degree. If litter
is alio ed to be eaten, it bbould ou
ly be given to cattle not in milk, aud
on no account sbonld milch cows be
allowed to consume otber than tbe
sweetest and purest food. Very nice
butter makers are sometimes at a loss
to account for stable taints in butter,
especially when extraordinary pre
cautious bave been taken to bave the
milking done in tbe most perfect in it u
ner, and so on in all tbe processes of
handling tbe milk until the butter is
packed tor market. Still the butter
has a disagreeable taint, and the
cause often conies from allowing the'
cows, when turned out to water aud
exercise, to feed about tbc h irse sta
ble, when tbey consume all the litter
which, on account of its being soak
ed witb liquid niaunre, is cast out of
the stable. Rural Sew Yorker.

The Turkey
While yisiting a poultry show at
Tamaqu-, Pa., a saort time since,
our atteuiion was drawn to some fi ie
large "Wild Turkeys." Tbe cock1
bird iu this peu was the haud-ome t
we ever saw. Iu sv.umetry be set til
ed lo be perfect, while his plumage t
was simply superb. lie w as a three- j
year old bird, but showed none ofj
tbe symptons of age or debility.
This pair of birds made sueh an
impression ou us that we hunted up
ibe exhibitor to learn ILeir bistry.
He -&id this cock w as batched from
au egg found ia a w ild hen's uesi iu
the mountains, and was.raised on the
frm. But since he w as a year old, i
be aud his mates take to the moun
tain wheu spring arrives, and remain
away till autumn, when they return
with fiue flocks of young ones, which
they have raised without care or feed
fp'iu the owutr.
This statement was something of
a surprise to us. In our community
the youug turkey are carefully hunt
ed up, aud "brought home aud fed
every day until tbey bave attaiued
some size. This is perhaps necessa
ry in a densely populated agricultur
al district ; but those semi-wild tur
keys were certainly as fine as any
w e ba-ve seen any w here. We weigh
ed one gobbler," which turned tbe
scale at thirty-two pounds, and uuui
bers of tbem weighicg from twnuty
iwo to twenty-eight pounds each.
As table birds" they were equal to
auy wc ever tried. Many of our
readers who live in wooded niouut
antous districts, si OJld take a hint
from ibis and see what ihey can do
in turkey raising. As a table fowl,
no one of our domestic birds is equal
to-a good turkey. They may be rais
ed in a roomy place at a small ex
pense, and always commaud a fair
price iu tbe market
Some farmers object to having tur
kevs roamiug over their fields before
the harvest is gathered, but the objec
tion is groundless. They really do
no injury to the grain crops, w hile
they consume innumerable insects of
all kinds, which would be detrimen
tal to the farmers interests. It is
true a flock will be destructive to a
field of buckwheat, if they find it ;
hut even here the loss is not great, as
it is marketed iu the shape of poultry
in.-teud of flour.
To give some idea of the turkey
busiucss, it may bo stated that the
anuual product of Bucks county Pa.,
alone, is over $200,000 w orth. This
may stagger some readers who have
giveu tbe subject no attention ; but
w hen it is known that there are faix
thousaud farms iu the county, and
tuikevs are raised on nearly all of
them, lhe figures will not be .-.urpris-iiiii.
Practical Farmer.
iicce full of lnn.
A goose has perhaps the keenest
appreciation ot humor of any uuiili il,
unless it be her arcli-euem. lhe f.'X
The writer ouce saw iu a lune grai-sy
paUdock some eigbl or ten lai and
healthy pigs aud half a score of geese.
From this paddock a narrow, open
gate gave eutrauco into the farm
yard, aud as eveuing drew on, the
geese ra iged themselves in a row
uear this Tbermopyhe. Obviously,
supper-time was approaching and tbe
pigs wished to returu borne to their
troughs. Equally clearly tbe geee
had giveu eacu oiljer the word uol
to let theiu pass through the gales
w h.ch they guarded without payiug
loll. First tbere came up a jolly
good humored little pig, w ho trolled
ebeei fully along wiib a eouli deuce
which ought to bave disarmed criti
cism, till no came auioug tue geese.
Then, with a cacKie aud a scream,
every uecK was s re.cneu io gel a
bite ai him, aud squealing ana yel
ling, lhe poor liiile porker ran the
gauntlet. 1 be same tale befell six
orseveu more of his breiureu in suc
cession, each betrayed iucreasiug
irepidatiou, as be approached the
fatal pass and made a boll through
tbe corps de fjardc of geese, whose
chattering screeches ot delight were
almost u jdisiinguisbcd from bumau
laughter. At lasl tbe biggei pig of
the oariv brought up the rear. He
w as a pinked fleshed, clean youo
fellow, with fat limbs aud sides, aud
his ears were cocked, and tail sharp
ly twisted in the intelligent wide
awake manner which so completely
distinguishes tbe intellectual pig
from the mere swiue multitude.
Wiib a loud grunt of defiance this
brave beast charged through the
flock of geese, aud actually almost
gaiued the gate, when a large gray
goose made one grab at his fat ham,
caught up the skin in a bunch and
gave it a tremendous pinch with her
red beak. Needless lo say tbe air
was rent witb soueals of atrony of
the injured pig and the ecstatic pteans
of the flock of geese in chorus, r ronj
ibe order in which tbe transaction
took place we derive the impressiou
that a similar game of prisoner's base
probably formed the entertainmeut of
the geese every evening. trances

Manure for Orana.
No crop srets less aitcution than
trass. If manured at ull. it is ouly
incidentally wun some otber crop
raielv for itself ilone. Corn, wheat
and barley get the manure, aud when
? ceded, the3ouog clovtr takes what
is lefi. Afier ibis, if the field be pas
tured, the dropuiugs of animals, left
in lumps over the field are all that
ibe lauds get till ihey are plowed
aain. I bis is considered improv
ing the soil; aud it is. .No matter
bow mismanaged, clover is a beuefit,
aud hatever el.-e he mav do, tbe
farmer who sows aud crows clover,
is making his farm better. Wbat
then might nut the result be if the
same care were taken of ibe clover
field as of tuber crop-? It does not
ined cultivation; tbe louit deep r ach
ing roots mellow and nulverize the
soil as nothing else can. If tbe
clover g-ows tbrifiily, the top acts
a-i a mulch, shading tbe ground and
keeping it moist. A crop of two
tons or more of clover, whether
plowed uuder or cut for bay, can
bardly fail to leave tbe soil better
than it was before. It should be tbe
farmers aim to crow tbe largest pos
sible crops of clover. A slight dress
ing id gypsum oue hundred pouuds
per acre in early spriug often pro
duces wonderful results. -But if a
farmer has a little well rotted ma
nure, the scrapings of barn-yards,
fad is the time to apply it. Clover
is often iujured by freeziug and thaw
ing winters, and a very slight cover
ing of manure will afford a great
deal of protection. Rich earth from
tbe corner of feuces, is well worth
drawing a short distance on youug
clovi r, provided the ground is hard
and firm. If the field is not to be
mowed next season, coarse manure
can be used. Prairie Farmer.

Tbe Trooe Tm PrlBcesa.
1 have had the oleasure of inspect
inif the trousseau of a unncess a
real princes that is to say oue ot
undoubted royal blood, tbe damsel
iu question being tbe Princess Marie
Alexaudriua of Saxe Weimar, niece
of lhe King of Hollaud. She is short
ly to be married to tbe Prince of
Ueiiss, aud the firm orGoraud & Co,,
has bad the h'.uor of prepiriuir tbe
In idal ouitit of ber royal highness.
She has tw elve dozen each of all the
smaller articles of lingerie aud six
dozen of larger pieces, fall tbe Guest
cambric, ouly varying iu the styles
of their puffs aud lucks, their laces
or embroidery. These undergar
ments alone cost $13,000. Then she
has SO dresses and 25 bonnets, and
many gloves, fans, cloaks, shawls,
and other pretty trifles, the laces in
particular are exquisite iu Dueuess
aud design. Oue dinuer dress palest
crepe do Chine was decorated with
three hood flounces of tbe finest aud
costliest Yalencieunes, which crossed
lhe breast transversely; the back of
tbe dress was dtaw n in two immense
pads, and the cuirass corsage, open
en c(eur, was trimmed with narrow
lace to match the flounces. Another
dress of pale lilac crepe de Chine was
trimmed with equally Gne aud beauti
ful poiut Ducbesse. A garnet vel
vet dress was decorated with narrow
point d'Alencon, of the greatest
beauty aud Guentss, the wedding
dress was in while satin. The front
of the skirt was covered with three
wide flounces of magnificent point
aguille (sometimes erroneously call
ed point de Yeuise), the second
richest of modern laces,
tbc richest
being of course the point
These flounces were pot
straight round the skirt,
simply on,
iu the old
fashioned way. An immense court
train, fully three yards long, was at
tached to the skirt. It was bordered
all round with the rows of lace sepa
rated by a narrow quilling of satin
The corsage, was, as usual open en
cwur, with balf-loug sleeves, and
was trimmed with lace, its dress ot
pale, rose colored silk was decorated
wiib flounces aud trimming of point
applique, which looked very ordinary
in comparison w ith the splendors of
tho ricber laces.
TberA were a'so dresses trimmed
n ilh antique laces, which had de
scended to the onde iroru some
of ber royal ancestors curious,
web like fabrics, but lacking
daiuty beauty of artistic desigu
w hich marks tbe laces of the present
day. Tbe Costliest aud most superb
article in the trousseau was display
ed ou a table iu the centre of the
room. Ji was a tuuic or overskiri of
the royal poiut d'Aleucon of incom
parable liueuess aud beauty of de
sigu. 1 his fabric had employed ten
woi k iiii-ii for eight years, aud had
cosi $10,000. Ibe pattern was
dahlias, torgetme-uols aud ferus
groojied with marvelous grace aud
eucirled by a dainty trace iy of branch
ing tendrils, delioate as frost work
upon tbe window pane. Tbe bride's
traveliug dress was of stamped black
velvet, trimmed wuh bands of Hus
sion sable, surmounted by a black
velvet toque also trimmed with fur,
aud with a siugle biid with dove-
colorcd aud golden-green plumage.
The cost of the whole trousseau had
amounted to $100,000.
For the bride's mother, the Grand
Duchess of Saxe- Weimer, a ruby vel
vet dresrf had beeu prepared covered
almost entirely with the real poiut de
Yeuise, that autique lace of cardinals
aud convents, the secret of whose
manufacture is lost. What these
broad flounces, delicate as carvings
in ivory, might be worth I did not
aitempi to surmise. A court dress
made for the Grand Duchess was
shown; the traiu was of green satin,
bordered with a baud of embroidery
iu silver, the threads of which, being
of pure metal, had resisted the ac

from medium sized potatoes. An
other row by the side, of sme num
ber of two eyes; another of three;
tben another of one-half, and lastly,
a row of a whole one. " The whole
plot was treated exactly alike. At
digging, the row of one eje had tbe
largest number of large potatoes ; tbe
row of two eyes, the greatest number
of merchantable one's; while the row
of whole ones, had the least. The
second row yielded nearly two bush
