JOHN ALLEN'S FIRST LEGAL VICTORY.
"Private John Allen," of Mississippi,
who became the wit of the house of representatives
with the death of Sunset Cox,
tells a good story on himself of how he
came to be a profound lawyer.
A party of members were telling yarns
in the cloak room of the house yesterday,
and when Allen's turn came he told this
one:
"I want to tell you of the greatest legal
victory of my life," said Allen, as he
lighted a cigar and propped his feet against
the wall in true Southern style. "It was
down in Tupelo, during the trying period
just after the war. I was at that time a
practicing lawyer, umt is j. prtujuucu
whenever I had any cases to practice with.
One day old 4Uncle' Pompey, one of the
old negroes of the; settlement came into
my office and said:
"Mars John, I want you to cl'ar me.?
1*8 gwine to be 'rested for stealin' of two
hams out of the cross road store."
" 'Well Pompey,' I asked, 'Did you
steal the hams?'
" 'Mars John, I just took 'em.'
" 'Did any one see you ?' I asked.
" 'Yas, Boss,' said the old negro, disconsolately,
'two ole white buckras.'
" 'Well, Pompey, I replied, 'I can't do
anything for you under the circumstances.'
" 'Now, Mars John, here's ten dollars.
I jist want you to try.'
" Well, I consented to try," said Allen.
"The case was to be tried before an old
magistrate named Johnson. He was totally
uneducated, and was moreover a
perfect dictator, and no negro ever came
before him who was not fined the maximum
penalty and sent to the field to expiate
the crime in the sweat of his brow.
"The magistrate heard the case. Every
possible proof was brought to show that
Pompey stole the hams. There could be
no doubt of it from the testimony. I did
not put a single question to any of the
witnesses, but when the testimony was
all in, I arose, and in ray roost dignified
manner addressed the magistrate:
" 'May it please your Honor, it would
be useless for me to argue the position he
holds, and before one who would adorn
the superior n doc me supreme court,
bench of this grand old commonwealth.
+ And I may say that those who know best
say that you would grace even the supreme
court of the United States, the highest
tribunal in the land. It will be useless
to dwell upon the testimony. You have
. heard it and know the case as well as I do.
However, it may not be out of order for
me to call your Honor's attention to a
short passage in the old English law,
which clearly decides the case, and which,
for the moment, your Honor may have
forgotten.'
"Then I fished down into my pocket
and drew forth with a great flourish, an
old copy of 'Julius Ctesar.' I opened it
with great dignity to the first page
and read the line which is familiar to
every school boy, ' Omnia Golli-a in tres
divisa est.' 'That decides the case,' throwing
the book upon the table. 'That clearly
acquits the defendant.'
"With great dignity and solemnity I
took my seat. The old magistrate was
completely nonplussed. He looked at me
a moment quizzically and scratched his
head. Then, turning to Pompey, he raised
himself to his full height and said:
" 'Pompey I know you stole them hams,
but by the ingenuity of your lawyer I've
got to let you go. Git out,' said he, as he
planted his No. 9 in the seat of Pompey's
pants, and if you ever come here
again, lawyer or no lawyer, you git six
months.' "?[Atlanta Constitution.
ROOM FOR ANOTHER.
In a certain town lived an old deacon
who was noted for his grasping avaricious
dispositon. He had several grown-up sons
and a son-in-law?Dave?a wild harumscarum
fellow, whose chief delight was
in "working" the old man. One day,
when all hands were at work in the hayfield,
the deacon stopped, and, leaning on
his rake, told the "boys" a story of a wonderful
dream he had had, wherein he was
transported to the realms of bliss, and
wonderful indeed were the sights he had
seen there.
Dave listened open-mouthed and wideeyed,
until the old gentleman finished his
story, and then proceeded, as was his habit,
to tell a bigger one. He also had had a
wonderful dream, wherein he, too, had
been transported to the heavenly land, and
the glowing descriptions which he gave
of that place discounted the old man's by
long odds. But suddenly Dave found
himself out of that glorious place and
standing before a pair of massive stone
gates, above which was written, in characters
of fire, the word "Hades." He
knocked, and was admitted, and calling a
little imp, asked to be shown the sights.
His guide showed him two cells with tortured
inmates. "All at once," said Dave,
"as we were walking along, we came to
where there was a monstrous kettle, filled
with a sulphurous liquid, boiling at a terrific
rate, in which I noticed a great many
queer-looking black lumps, and inquired
what they were. 'Well, you see,' said the
guide, 'there are a lot of theSe fellows who
come down here who have such small
souls that if we should put them in a cell
we could never find them again, and so
we have fixed this arrangement;' and
taking a ladle he fished out one of the
lumps, cooled it with his breath, and
hanaed it to me to look at. It was of iron,
about the size of goose egg, with a hinge
on one side and a lock upon the other, and
a name written in the iron. 'Is it possible,'
I inquired,'that any human being could
have a soul small enough to occi-py the
hole u hich you tell me is inside of this?'
'O yes,' said the imp; 'where did you
come from ?' I told him, and he went
around to the other side, and began fishing
up the lumps and reading the names on
tnem, and to my surprise read the names
of several whom I had known, and finally
wound with the name of Deacon ,
/niioofinn '"Hi/I vnn Irnnur him?'
aUU II1C ^UVOblVU ) X/IVl JVM MMVTV .
'Know him!' I replied: 'why, he was my
father-in-law. I knew he was small, but
it isn't possible that he was small enough
to go into one of those things is it?' 'Yes,'
said the imp. 'He is all in there,' and
was about to throw the egg back into the
kettle, when suddenly he stopped, held it
up to his ear, shook it, and exclaimed,
'Holy Moses! There's room enough in
there for another.'"
That Was All.?Old truths are all the
time receiving new illustrations. Here,
for example, is a photographer's story, to
show that great effects often proceed from
seemingly insufficient causes:
"It was in the old days of the wet plate
method," said a photographer, "when an
exposure of twenty seconds was necessary,
ana a sitter had to be absolutely quiet. 1
had my subject as I wanted him, and took i
off the cap.
"I left the room for a moment, and on
returning found everything all right apparently.
Apparently I say, but when I
> went into the dark room and developed i
the plate, I found it most terribly blurred.
It looked as if the sitter had turned a handspring
or thrown a somersault. When I
went back I was angry.
" 'Whatdid you do?' I asked.
"'Nothing,' was the innocent answer.
Why?'
"'Look at that plate,' I said,'and then
tell me you didn't move.'

picture. 'Well, I declare, I wouldn't 'a'
thought that just going o ver to the window
a minute would have done all that.
I sat right down again.' "
He Wanted Information.?A man
who had left his team on the market and
carried a whip in his hand, entered a store,
and asked for the proprietor. That gentleman
came forward, and the farmer
said :
"I want to ask you a question. You
have just been married a second time, and
ought to?"
"Sir! What-the devil do you mean?"
thundered the proprietor, in awful tones.
"Why, I lost my wife a year ago, and?"
"What do I care about your wife ?"
"And my friends are advising me to get
another. I have heard it said?"
"Get out of here!"
"Can't I inquire?"
"No, sir!" ]
"Won'tyou tell me if your second marriage
is?"
"No, sir! Get out, or I will do you up!" ,
"O, I'll get out, but you needn't get mad
over it. Seems to me that when a man
comes and asks for infor?"
"Git I" interrupted the proprietor, as he
jumped for an iron poker; and the farmer
dusted, saying as he reached the door:
"This settles me on a second marriage.
They can't be happy."
He Knew.?Mother?Johnny, you 1
mustn't play with that Robinson boy any
more. Johnny?Why not, ma? "Because 1
he is a bad boy." "Well, mother, he ain't 1
half as bad as me, I can tell you." 1

TIPS ON TABLE TOPICS.
If wine is served, do not attract the at- 1
tention of every one to the fact that you do
not drink it. The time for a temperance j
lecture is not at the table of a friend who
has done you the honor to invite you to ,
her house. Quietly shake your head and
let the matter rest.
In the old country you begin to eat as i
soon as you are helped, but in America it
is better taste to wait until the others are j
ready. This is a mooted question ; different
localities have different customs. Do .
not ask for a second help of anything at a 1
dinner party. Of courseat home and where
there is but one principal dish this is not '
obeyed.
Always take the food offered in a course,
even if you do not wish to eat it. It is j
much better to quietly wait and talk (
while the others eat than to call the attention
of the whole table to your likes and
dislikes. Never pile up your small dishes '
upon your plate when the servant comes 1
to remove them. Never fold your napkin
unless you are making a stay in the house j
and have a napkin ring provided for you. i
Lettuce, when served without dressing,
is always pulled to pieces with the fingers. ]
Water cress is also tauen in.me ringers. (
It is usually served in a shallow basket or
dish, upon a folded napkin, which covers
the bottom and sides. Heaped up with i
the delicate green herb it makes a very <
ornamental dish. Asparagus is eaten both
with a fork and also with the fingers. ,
But the former is perhaps the most ele- ,
gant way. Celery is always taken from
the dish with the fingers.
If individual salts are not used, then take 1
some salt from the large salt stand and
place it on the corner of your butter-plate
or on your own plate. When corn is served
on the cob, take it in the fingers. Some :
housekeepers provide little doilies for the
purpose. The etiquette of eating a softboiled
egg is rathera vexed question. The
English eat it directly from the shell, using
a cup made to hold the egg upright and
steady. Americans usually break the egg
into a cup.
Be careful not to monopolize the table ,
talk. Do not interrupt others. If you are ,
a dyspeptic do not talk of what does or <
does not agree with you, but quietly eat
what you can, and say nothing about it. I
know a celebrated mau who eats nothing (
but potatoes, crackers and chocolate. But 1
so nicely does he manage, in chatting gai- 1
ly, and making jokes while the others eat,
that very few people have observed his i
scrupulous care as to diet, and he is one of i
the most delightful "diners-out" that I i
ever knew.
It is always proper to help yourself to ,
bread, cheese and lump sugar with your .
fingers, if tongs are not provided. Never .
use your own fork or knife or spoon to take
from the common dish. If a plate of hot,
unbroken biscuit is passed, you may break \
one off with your fingers, and also for your j
neighbor. When dishes are passed, help ']
yourself as quickly as possible, and never
insist on some one having it first. It is <
supposed that the carver knows what he i
intends for each guest, so you must take {
the plate that is offered by the waiter.
SOME USeTfOR BORAX. j
Blankets and furs put away well sprink- ]
led with borax done up air tight will never
be troubled with moths.
A little borax put in the water before ?
washing red, or red-bordered tablecloths ?
and napkins will prevent their fading. ?
Ringworms will yield to borax treatment.
Apply a strong solution of borax .
three times a day; also dust on the fine i
dry powder very often. <
Silver spoons and forks, in daily use,
may be kept bright by leaving them in
strong borax water several hours. The (
water should be boiling when they are 1
put in.
Put a tablespoonful of powdered borax
in your rinsing water; it will whiten the
clothes and remove the yellow cast on
garments that have been laid aside for two
or three years.
One of the best things to cleanse the
scalp thoroughly is to dissolve one-half
teaspoonful of borax in a quart of water
and apply it, rubbing it in well. Rinse
thoroughly in clear water.
For washing fine nice flannels, fiothing
will cause them to look so nice as borax in
the water, a tablespoonful of borax to a
pail of water being the right proportion.
Always wash baby's little flannel skirts,
shirts, etc., in this.
Always wash baby's mouth and gums
every morning with water in which you
have put a pinch of borax. It keeps the
mouth fresh and sweet, and prevents that
uncomfortable affliction, a sore mouth, with
which so many poor babies are troubled
when their mouths are not kept perfectly
clean.
Borax water is excellent for sponging
either silk or wool goods that are not soiled
enough to need washing. In washing
cashmere or wool goods, put a little borax
in the water. This will cleanse them much
more easily and better, without injury to
colors. Do not rub them on a board, but
use the hands, and throw on a line without
wringing. Press them on the wrong side,
and they will look almost like new.-[Good
Housekeeping.
Excellences of Salt.?-If the feet are
tired or painful after long standing, great s
relief can be had by bathing them in salt s
water. A handful of salt to a gallon of
water is the right proportion. Have the r
water as hot as can comfortably be borne, o
Immerse the feet and throw the water t
over the legs as far as the knees with the a
hands. When the water becomes too cool f
rub briskly with a flesh towel. This method
if used night and day will cure neuralgia
of the feet.
Carpets may be greatly brightened by
first sweeping thoroughly and then going
over them with a clean cloth and clear
salt water.
Salt as a tooth powder is better than almost
anything that can be bought. It
keeps the teeth brilliantly white and the
gums hard and rosy.
If after having a tooth pulled the mouth
is filled with salt and water it will allay
the danger of having a hemorrhage.
To clean- willow furniture use salt and
water. Apply it with a nail brush, scrub
well and dry thoroughly.
When broiling steak throw a little salt
on the coal, and the blaze from the dripping
fat will not annoy.
Damp salt will remove the discoloration
of cups and saucers caused by tea and careless
washing.
Brass work can be kept beautifully bright
by occasionally rubbing with salt and vinegar.
Wash the mica of the stove and doors
with salt and vinegar.
AST A nervous headache is a dangerous
signal. If it be frequent the danger is increased
; if it be continuous a catastrophe
is imminent. The driver must put on his
brake at all hazards, says the American
Analyst, or he will probably soon have a
leap for his life. There are very few sets
of circumstances in which it is a man's
duty to go on with his work, when he is
in this condition, at all risks. Even a
threatened bankruptcy had better be risked
than a threatened life. Besides, a ma. who
is in the unyielding grip of a permanent
nervous headache is not really the best
judge of his own circumstances. He magnifies
and distorts things amazingly. He
takes counsel of his fears, and abandons
his hopes and courage altogether. Rest,
immediate and sufficient rest, is the sovereign
remedy.
A Cholera Remedy.?I notice a great
many inquiries for a remedy for chicken
cholera. I have one which we have used
for ten or twelve years, and I have never
known it to fail curing the worst cases.
I have cured them when their combs
would be almost white. Half pound flax ]
seed meal, three ounces of cayenne pepper, ?
two ounces of rhubarb, two ounces pow- <]
dered blue mass, three oynces of rosin; }
mix and give three tablespoonfuls mixed t
in a gallon of meal. If they are too sick t
to eat, take as much of the mixture as will
lay on the point of a pen-knife and give
to each chicken.?|'i\irs. ?. ij. w., in *

Simple syrup (common white sugar 'J
dissolved in hot water) has an unmistak- t
able effect in loosening the phlegm of the r
congested air-passages and can therefore
be used to good purpose in relieving the \
distress of an irritating "dry" cough. The ^
efficacy of innumerable varieties of expensive
"cough medicines" depends on c
their saccharine elements (any sort of syr- B
up) much more than upon their patented a
admixtures of mysterious herbs.
To Keep off Mosquitoes.?Take a
small quantity of two per cent carbolic c
acid solution and sprinkle sheets, cover- e
lets, pillows and bolster on both sides, the e
edges of bed curtains, and the wall next a
the bed. The face and neck may also be t
slightly wetted with the solution. Not a I
single gnat or mosquito, it is said, will e
come near. 1

A NAVY OFFICER'S LIKE.
The life of a naval officer is very far
from being an easy or amusing one, in my
opinion, said a young lieutenant the other
day to a Washington Star reporter. People
generally have a notion that we do
nothing but lark and play ; but such is as
far as possible from being the case. To
begin with, we have to do at least eight
hours out of the twenty-four of the hardest
sort of toil work?indeed, so disagreeable
in its character that there are few kinds of
labor which are not pleasant in comparison.
Four hours by day and four at night,
month after month and year after year,
we mustspendin silently walkingaplank,
forbidden to utter a word to any one, unless
it is necessary to make a formal communication
to the captain, and even denied
the privilege of sitting down if we
are tired. Such is watch duty. Maybe
your night watch begins at 8 p. m., and
lasts until twelve; if not, you must be engaged
in this pleasing duty from midnight
till four in the morning. But all the same
you must be through breakfast before nine
a. m., and ready for morning drill. The
blue jackets have to be put through their
evolutions like soldiers, marching in
squads and practicing at the guns. In the
afternoon it is likely there will be another
drill. During the intervals of such duties
itaii mau Inaf r\r crr\ aloon Tn thta utoit
JUU UJUjr JUW1 VI ^ V IW VJV\ p. All VII Id ?T llj
is life on board ship made up.
When the ward-room mess is composed
exclusively of jolly and congenial men
things go very pleasantly. But such a
fortunate condition of affairs is rather the
exception than the rule. There are many
more unhappy ships in the service, as we
phrase it, than happy ones. You see, social
existence under such circumstances is
reduced to very close quarters, and small
things become serious annoyances. A
disagreable fellow, not in any way to be
avoided or got rid of, can occasion much
discomfort. But the most common source
of uncomfortablenessis mere want of sympathy
among the officers. How can it
be expected that the man of mature years
could find companionable a fresh young
ensign not long out of the naval academy,
or vice versa? Such differences of age,
feelings and opinions are necessarily productive,
if not of discord, at least of unhappines3.
If the executive officer, who
always presides over the ward-room mess,
is an unpleasant person, things are made
exceedingly miserable. He may behave
in a tyrannical manner, carrying his authority
to the table even, and the very
meals will be rendered unpalatable
through his bad temper.
"One would imagine the position of a
captain to be a very enjoyable one."
It is hardly such, for many reasons. To
begin with, it is exceedingly difficult for
the captain of a ship to maintain agreeable
relations socially with his officers and to
keep strict discipline at the same time. If
the commander of a man-of-war were seen
to indulge in a laughing familiarity with
one of the lieutenants, that single act would
loosen discipline all over the vessel. From
that time on, the naval cadet would be
more at ease with the executive officer,
the petty officers would be a trifle more
familiar in addressing the young lieutenants,
and the blue jackets would pay
slightly less respectful attention to the
orders of the petty officers. Everything
on board must outwardly preserve an air
of the coldest formality, else before you
know it there will be trouble, which can
only be settled by putting a score of men
in irons, and dropping all social courtesies
between the captain's cabin and the ward
room. The captain must always maintain
the role of an absolute monarch. What he
aouaialmv "Nu.minnllv n nontoin hfl<a nnw
er of life and death over any one on board,
but he would never carry ittothatextreme,
unless in case of mutiny, and he is chary
of administering: punishment, for the reason
that any common sailor under him
has the ear of the captain's own masters
if he has an abuse to complain of. For the
captain is obliged by the regulations to
forward to the secretary of the navy at
Washington any document which the
meanest blue jacket may choose to hand
him for such transmission. He may mark
it "not approved of," but he has got to send
it, and it may cause his own court-martial
and even dismissal from the service
in case the complaint is of a sufficiently
serious nature and is sustained. But if the
captain is a disagreeable man, he can
make life wretched enough for officers as
well as men, without exceeding the authority
which the regulations give him.
That is one drawback about the navyone
is always under the master's eye.
Kven at the mess table authority is present
in the person of the executive officer. If
an offence is committed, it is communicated
by him to the captain, and by the captain
to the navy departmental Washington.
Thus the department may be said to
have a stern and ever-watchful gaze bent
upon each one of us. To get away from it
is impossible, save by leaving the service.
The authority by which it is directed is
inexorable, never forgettingand never forgiving.
In the record books of the department
each officer has a page on which
is inscribed everything bad that he has
been found out in since he entered the
naval academy and up to date. Nothing
is ever rubbed out from that page ; it
stands always ready to accuse him of past
misdeeds, if there is occasion to examine
into his professional history. If he ven
? - - .1 l ? i. ...! 11
tures 10 owe a ueut, uie uejmniLieiji win
compel him to pay it. And a naval officer
has exceptional opportunities for running
into debt, too. Any one will trust
him?even urge him to buy on credit?because
the money is to be got readily
enough. If I owed a tailor for a suit of
clothes here in Washington and didn't
pay him, he would simply write to the
secretary of the navy, inclosing the little
bill. The secretary would respond by a
line to the paymaster telling him to send a
check for the amount of the bill to the
tailor, and deduct the amount from my
next month's pay. Thus we are held under
a sort of paternal control, and obliged
to strictly behave ourselves. You can perceive
that it must sometimes be irksome
to be never one's own master. We have
some spells of comparative liberty, of
course, when we are on leave.
POOR WRETCHES OF FARMERS.
The farming population of Egypt, notwithstanding
they have the richest soil on
the face of the globe, are among the poorest
of their class. Their holdings are
small, and they are taxed to death. They
are happy if they can get the bare necessities
of living, and their homes in ninetynine
cases out of a hundred are hut9, made
of dried sun-baked bricks and huddled
together along the unpaved streets of a
village. These huts are square or rectangular
in 9hape. They are seldom more
than seven feet in height, and their roofs
are flat. The live stock of the family often
takes up apart of the room, and goats,
and cows and donkeys, and men and women
are crowded into one little room.
The wife of the farmer works as well
as her husbaDd, and though she must
wear a veil over her face to keep other
men from seeing her, she carries all the
water for the family from the Nile on her
head, and provides the fuel for the family
by gathering the soft droppings of the
camels and the cows, and patting them
into shape with her hands to Jay away
and dry in the sun. She cooks without a
stove, and the people live on the cheapest
of food. They know nothing of the beauties
of nature, and they have neither gardens
nor flowers. The houses are so closely
huddled together that you could plant
an Egyptian village of five thousand people
on a twenty-five acre field. You would
hardly consider the houses of the town a
fit place for your hogs, and you certainly
would not trust one of your blooded horses
or registered shorthorns within them.
Farm wages are scarcely life-supporting.
In upper Egypt there are thousands of
men bending all day in raising these Nileeaters,
who receive from five to seven
cents for working from sunrise to sunset,
and about the great city of Cairo I am
told that the average of farm labor is not
more than twenty cents a day. Such of
the farmers as own their lands can do no
better. Their farms are not more than
one or two acres in size on the average,
and six-sevenths of all the people of Egypt
live by farming. Taxes range from $5
an acre upward, and there are import taxes,
export taxes, and taxes on all kinds of
produce at the city and villages before
they can be brought into the market and
sold. The national debt of Egypt is to-day
nearly as large as that of the United
States, and the average of the burden supported
by this poverty-stricken agricultural
population is more than $125 a family.
Still, Egypt has been selling for years more
than $50,000,000 worth of her produce per
annum to the nations of the world, but her
surplus goes to her rulers, and the bankers
of Europe grow fat on the life blood of the
land of the Nile.?[American Agriculturist
JST In the early settlement of Connecticut,
when tobacco was coming into use, a ,
curious law was made for its regulation.1
It was ordered that no person under twenty
years of age, nor any other who had
not already accustomed himself to its use,
should take any tobacco until he had obtained
a certificate from under the hand of
an approved physician that it was useful
for him, and until he had also obtained a
license from the court. All others who
had addicted themselves to the use of it
were prohibited taking it in any company,
or at their labors, or in traveling, unless
ten miles at least from any company, and
though not in company more than once a
day upon pain of a fine of a sixpence for
every such offense.
A MATRIMONIAL LOTTERY.
William C. King is a farmer at New-1
port, Minn., and is about thirty years of
age and unmarried. Sidney C. King, who
is three years older and carries on a team- j
ing business at the same place, is his 1
brother. A few days ago, according to a |
dispatch to the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, i
they were sitting at William's house read-j
ing the newspaper, when Sidney noticed
a paragraph about a man in the east who
was advertising for a wife. Sidney said
he thought that was a foolish plan by
which to secure a wife. William said he
didn't think it was, and the brothers got
into a heated argument over the question.
"I will tell you what I will do," finally
said Sidney. "I will het you five hundred
dollars even that you dare not select a
wife by lottery in a way that I will indicate."
MT hnvp nn tnnnov " rpnlipd William :
"but I have a farm wortfi that at least,
and I will take that bet if you will put up
your money against my farm at Corkington."
"All right, it's a go," said Sidney, and
they set to work to prepare the terms of
the bet. A contract was drawn up in legal
form and each signed it. It provided that
William should not go more than 500 miles
nor tess than three miles from his home
and select a wife by lottery. He is to
make 100 tickets, numbered from 1 to 100,
which are to be put in envelopes and one
given to every lady wishing a husband,
regardless of her age or nationality. A
certain day is to be announced for the
drawing, and a public notice is to be given
of the place where it is to take place. On
the day of the drawing some person is to be
selected by the audience and blindfolded.
The tickets are to be placed in a hat and
well shaken up. The man blindfolded
will then be brought on the stage and requested
to draw one ticket from the hat.
By the number which it bears the future
wife of William King is to be determined,
as he must marry the lady holding the
corresponding number or forfeit his farm.
If he carries out this agreement he will receive
the sum of $500 bet by his brother.
Cheerfulness a Source of Health.
"Whatever else you do, don't worry yourself
to death, if you never die," was the
sage if somewhat erratically put advice of
an old lady who nearly attained five score
years.
"A merry heart doethgood like a medicine,"
is more than a poetic metaphor; it
is a physiological truth of immense practical
value. It is a fact, not so difficult to
explain as might be supposed, that many
persons succumb to an attack at a time
when numbersaresickof thesame malady
and not a few are dying from it who would
have recovered if they had been the only
sufferers. The effect of the mind upon
the body is so strongly marked that the
first effort of all well informed physicians,
when called to attend a person seized with
any malady, is to secure mental tranquility
and a hopeful spirit.
Whatever else may be said of the power
of faith to cure disease and restore the
sick, no one who has had any experience
with invalids will deny that the want of
it has left many to die who would have
recovered if they had been sanguine of the
result. A fright will check the action of
the heart, and thousands perish annually
without any organic disease simply from
the shock of a sudden alarm which has
filled them with terror. The power of the
will to prolong life in a frail body has
been so often witnessed that the medical
authorities now accept it as established
beyond all contradiction.
Oral Greetings.?The oral forms of
salutation as a rule, said Col. Garrick
Mallery in a lecture at Washington, refer
to health and well-being. The Arabs re
iterate tne pnrase "now are you c- iur
several minutes. The inhabitants of Cairo
ask "How do you perspire?" a dry
skin denoting the dreaded fever. Humboldt
says that along the Orinoco the
morning salutation is "How have the
mosquitoes used you ?" Our phrase "How
do you do?" has been explained, with the
emphasis on the word do "do," as referring
to the activity of the Anglo-Saxon
race. It may refer, however, to the devotion
of the race to commercial pursuits,
and would be the equivalent of "How are
you prospering in your business?"
The Chinese have a peculiar custom
of greatly depreciating one's self and exaggerating
the importance of the other.
Thus one might say, "How does your royal
celestial and most noble highness and
the beautiful glowing and fascinating
moon, your wife, and that personification
of all that is beautiful, manly and strong,
your most illustrious son?" To this a
proper answer would be, "The ignorant
beggar whom you have had the goodness
to address is in his usual state of ignorance
and filth, while that old sow, his wife, and
that dirty pig, his son, are no better off."
fiST A Russian physician named Portugaloff,
declares that strychnine is an infallible
cure for drunkenness, administered in
subcutaneous injection. He asserts that
the experience of physicians has shown
this cure to be as rapid as it is certain.
The effect of the strychnine solution is to
change the craving for drink into positive
aversion, and this change is effected in a
day. After a treatment of eight or ten
days a patient may be discharged. The
strychnine is administered by dissolving
one grain in two hundred drops of water,
and injecting five drops of the solution
every twenty-four hours.?[Journal of

THE BUCKEYE MOWER is the
parent of grass cutting machines and
the standard of the world. In almost
every land and nation the name
"BUCKEYE" is known and re001ft
spected. It is a reputed statement
'1 that in some place, in some climate,
I somewhere under the sun, the BuckJ
eye is at work without a day's eessaT
tion the whole year through. This
I readily accounts for the fact that there
are more huckkye machines in use
today than any other make.
gj Mr. C. J. Browning, of Eairplay, Jafferson
county, Ohio, owns a Buckeye
Mower that has been in constant use

Chkstkr, S. C., March 27, 1890.
I liavo owned a Corbin Disk Harrow for
(1 economical farming implement of which
ore for the farmer than all the politicians,
hing practical. No farmer can fail to be
nore it is useil the greater the benefit or
farming implement that I have ever seen
it, and the only one that would do more,
able to buy fertilizers for his land is more
nil come when the Corbin Harrow will be
the wagon, sewing machine, cooking stove,
s the better for the farmer. It only takes a
of doing things, about one hour to realize
ed before he used the Corbin Harrow. In
farm without it. Respectfully,
